Wanna have more LUCK with your Business? (Do this 1 thing!)
If you flip a coin, what is your probability of getting heads? - 50%
If you flip a coin TWICE, what is your probability of getting heads at least once? - 75%
If you flip a coin THRICE, what is your probability of getting heads at least once? - 87.5%
If you flip a coin 10 TIMES, what is your probability of getting heads at least once? - 99,9%
In the other words, by flipping the coin 10 times, your chances of NOT getting heads at least once is 0.01% = One in a thousand = Extremely unlikely
Now you're probably already asking...
What Has Flipping Coins to Do with Building an Online Business???
Building your business is like flipping a coin.
Now you're saying...
"WHAAATTT????? Roope, are you saying that business success is purely dependent on luck???"
No. That's not what I'm saying.
But your business success is dependent on probabilities.
Let's put it this way.
Building a blog = Coin flipping game
Getting heads = Reaching success (You define it for yourself: x number of visitors or earning y amount of money.)
Flipping a coin = Publishing a blog post
Let's start the Blogging game!
If you publish 1 blog post, what is your probability of reaching success? Extremely small.
If you publish 10 blog posts, what is your probability of reaching success? More than 10 times bigger (comparing to just 1 post).
If you publish 100 blog posts, what is your probability of reaching success? More than 100 times bigger (comparing to just 1 post).
Every single time when you publish a blog post, you are "flipping a coin" and your chances of success are getting bigger and bigger.
In fact, your chances of success will grow exponentially for several reasons:
- Your skills get better.
- You'll have more data.
- More people are sharing your content.
- More websites are linking to your site.
- Your blog has more and more authority on Google.
- Etc. Etc.
It's not a coincidence that blogs with more posts achieve more success on average. They are simply following simple probabilities that you learned at school as a teenager in the math lessons.
The Same Applies to YouTube (& other platforms!)
If you've read my Wealthy Affiliate blog posts before, you've seen the following pictures.
It shows the research of more than 3,000,000 YouTube channels with 1 simple question: How many videos the channel with x amount of subscribers have published on average?
See the results below:
The result is obvious and it can be explained with the law of probability (or law of averages).
YouTube channels with 1,000,000+ subscribers have simply flipped the coin thousands of times more than smaller channels.
I've seen similar statistics also about the amount of followers of social media accounts. The more you post, the more Twitter followers you'll have (or whatever platform you might be using).
Do you wanna be a superstar blogger, social media guru or the next PewDiePie?
=> Publish more content.
Can it be so simple?
Well, maybe you won't become the next PewDiePie because there's only one PewDiePie in the world but at least you can beat 99,99% of your competitors who quit flipping the coin sooner than you.
Does this mean that you should start publishing content just for the sake of publishing content? No.
If you publish content, just for the sake of publishing more content, your business can suffer more than benefit.
This simply means that by publishing 2 posts instead of one post signficantly increases your chances of success if the quality is the same.
Now you have the formula to be IMMEDIATELY LUCKIER with your business!
When you'll succeed big and someone asks, "Hey! How did you get so lucky?"
You can simply reply, "Roope showed me in Wealthy Affiliate how I can be luckier and it worked!" ;)
It's Your Time!
