    Keep doing the right thing, the results will follow

    That’s a great idea! I’ll work on it. Got a head cold though so no voiceover tonight.

    What are you buying for Black Friday 2021?

    Hmm… I’ve not used a teleprompter but got this for the hell of it. Email I received: Instead of a discount for Black Friday, I'm making Video Teleprompter completely free for 24 hours! This means you can get the one-time lifetime upgrade for Video Teleprompter for free (instead of $16.99)...

    EXECUTION Figuring out explainer videos

    I used Vittle on an iPad and created some nice little videos. Here’s one: What's Your Problem? I’ve also done talking head videos doodling on a clipboard next to my face. That’s particularly engaging. More so than a flipchart.

    Forum brainstorm: Make money from written content

    Paid email newsletters. Online or in person courses/workshops/events. Communities. More (books, white papers, etc.) Ads, paid shoutouts, etc. Selling leads. Selling the website, funnels, content, etc.

    Forum brainstorm: Make money from written content

    Some thoughts: 1) The content library may be a bigger asset than the audience built wherever that content was published. Take the library and publish it on other platforms and build new audiences? “Don’t say different things to the same people. Say the same thing to different people.” 2)...

    Forum brainstorm: Make money from written content

    Let’s say you have a load of written content. Maybe blog posts, forum posts, books, or white-papers, etc. Let’s say you’ve already had some success selling that content or using that content to sell other services or products. Imagine we’re in a brainstorming session where no idea is too...

    CHAT Random Chat, Thoughts, Posts, and/or Rants Thread

    That would bug the heck out of me. I guess you’ve taken that person aside and explained your thoughts on what they’re doing and what will happen if they keep doing it?

    CHAT Random Chat, Thoughts, Posts, and/or Rants Thread

    @MTF Read you’re own posts as if they were written by someone else. What would you conclude? More importantly, what would you advise? (This works for all of us btw.)

    What are you buying for Black Friday 2021?

    I'm looking at this: Wave.video | Exclusive Offer from AppSumo and this: Ocoya | Exclusive Offer from AppSumo

    I’ll probably buy Wave.video from appsumo, maybe Ocoya too.

    Teach someone. Boy, does that highlight how much you know but take for granted.

    NOTABLE! What if you already know enough?

    Bump. Your goal isn’t to “learn” anything. It’s to help people, then help people and get paid. Down your books and spend your time helping people. Do it without expectation, and without being desperate. The best learning is on the job anyway.

    How to monetize (property) podcast without selling online courses?

    My bad. What I meant was, if I was to focus on just ONE main marketing channel/strategy then I personally wouldn’t start with a podcast. I’d start with a YouTube channel. That’s because I don’t have much of a podcast or YouTube audience yet, and I think YouTube is probably easier to grow, and...

    How to monetize (property) podcast without selling online courses?

    Check out Graham Cochrane’s podcast and how it funnels people to his courses. He doesn’t just sell courses on how to sell courses. His main income is via his YouTube channel “Recording Revolution”. Not quite my style as I don’t want to lead with a podcast, but could be similar to yours?

    How to monetize (property) podcast without selling online courses?

    Yes, it’s a super approach for creating an engaged membership where you’re also pumping out weekly mini-courses, email updates/newsletters, and building a library. You could throw in a community too if you enjoy running them. I don’t personally want to grow a large active community. I do...

    How to monetize (property) podcast without selling online courses?

    I know a course creator who does weekly live Zoom workshops to his paying subscribers. Each week he does a different topic. He is well prepared with slides and images. After each section he stops the recording and does a Q&A. At the end of the workshop he does a Q&A that he records. So the...

    Is a .com domain a must?

    Andy Black needs to stop buying domains and build one of them out already.

    Is a .com domain a must?

    Looks spammy, and is hard to tell people on the phone. Plus… people will type it in without the hypen and go to someone else’s site, and the “original” site may take issue with you using their brandname.

    Is a .com domain a must?

    The extension is important. We’ve seen ad CTR double just by changing domain name. The only non .com I have is AndyBlack(.)net … apart from any .ie or .co.uk domains that take precedence over the .com

    Is a .com domain a must?

    That’s interesting. Where have you seen this increase? I know type-in visits are significant and shouldn’t ne overlooked. A lot of podcasts tell people to “Pick up the check list at domain(.)com/checklist” etc. I’ve seen TV ads tell people at the end to “Visit domain(.)com” or “Search XYZ”...
