$3,500 a Month from Newsletter Curation

Have I told you lately how much I LOVE recurring income?

Here’s a brief case study about a guy who has not one, but FOUR different newsletters that he puts out twice per month.

These are super simple newsletters that contain all the latest stuff he’s found on the internet about the topics.

How in the world does he find all the latest news, articles, blog posts, stories, video clips, photos, and so forth?

Made You Look! How to Make Headline Grabbers Work for You

73% of people admit to skimming blog posts, while only 27% consume them thoroughly. Without a compelling headline, your content won’t receive the eyes it deserves.

But what exactly are headline grabbers? And how do you write one that stands out among the black-and-white sea of copy monotony? Most...

30 Minute Micro-Memberships with NO Product

You can add a super easy micro-recurring membership to your income in about 30 minutes, start to finish.

This assumes you already have some sort of product you’re selling as well as the ability to do a ‘bump’ upsell on the order form or create an upsell page.

A bump upsell is where you add a product to your order page with a tick box. The customer clicks the box to add the item to their order, and that’s it – it’s added with one click.

The key is to pay attention to how your content is received.

One can attract the most attention when people comment on and forward the posts.

A little 200-word article that gets great feedback is trying to tell you that you...

How to Get Experts to Write Your Blogposts for You

Allow Me to preface this by Alerting you that the Best Selling instrument in all of the world is not the worldwide web, sales letters or revenue videos, or word of mouth.

It is a story.

Stories market like nothing else since We're hard wired to hear and love tales. It is in our bodies. Think about a crude guy coming back from a search and telling everybody in the camp that a saber tooth tiger murdered bob's narrative in the northeast valley.

How to Survive Your First Hashtag Hijacking

During a presidential debate, the sitting U.S. President gave a shout out to a group called, “Proud Boys”.

When I think of ‘proud boys’, I imagine two-year-old boys in diapers who just used the potty for the very first time.

But apparently, these “Proud Boys” are actually a white supremacist group classified by the FBI as an extremist group and a hate group. Before the debate even ended, the hashtag #ProudBoys began trending.

That’s when LGBTQ Twitter...

9 Reasons Why Content Marketing WORKS


Paid advertising is great because once you’ve got ads and a funnel that works, you can turn on the switch anytime you’re willing to spend money to make money.

But content marketing is still important, and some would argue that in the long run it’s far more valuable than paid advertising.
