Affiliate Program Now Open!

A long requested feature from my clients is an affiliate scheme. Well with the launch of my video WordPress lessons, you can also see a new menu link on my site called Affiliates.

Currently I have two “products” that you can earn an affiliate commission on. My complete Blog Setup that is listed on the homepage, and of course the WordPress Training Videos. Both earn a $50 commission paid after 30 days (minimum of $100), and I’ve just added some new banners such as the one below that you can get easily from the Banners section of the Marketing Materials.

There is also a 300×250, and 125×125 ads, or of course you can use a text link too. Just let me know if you need any more!

You can sign-up or login here.

Blog Tech Guy on Blog Talk Radio

Last week I was interviewed on Blog Talk Radio. The show is called Only Divas Please and is part of the Wealth Success and Women network. You can listed to the show on Blog Talk Radio here, or by pressing play on the audio player below. It is a hour long and we discussed topics like:

  • Why you should have a website
  • How I chose my dentist (honestly!)
  • How I got started in the blog tech business
  • Monetizing your blog
  • And much more!

Does anyone else hate the sound of their own voice?!

New Blog Theme on BTG

For those of you who haven’t noticed, I have a new blog theme on my site, click here to visit me.

I’ve been preaching the virtues of having a custom design for a long time, and now thanks to Nate over at Unique Blog Designs I now have an awesome one myself.

Comments would be much appreciated, we have some tweaks to finish off but I’m very, very happy with it! Check it out 🙂

Yes, I Set Up Membership Sites

A common question I’ve been getting after the release of the Membership Site Masterplan, is whether I set up Membership sites. Actually I’ve been doing this for a while using the technique Yaro suggests, it’s simply a slightly customized WordPress installation and I can do it as part of my usual packages, just let me know when you contact me.

I'm One Year Old!

I’ve been so busy that I completely missed it by about a month but Blog Tech Guy has turned one year old.

So countless hours and 146 clients after my gradual launch, happy birthday to my alter ego!

Birthday cake

Plus it’s my, er, current ego’s birthday next week, so a real cake for me! With more sprinkles.

I'm On Vacation / Holiday!

Please note that I will on vacation / holiday between 19th and the 30th September inclusive. I will NOT have access to email, so will not be able to reply to you, and there will be a delay in replying to you when I do return to work in October.

I will reply to you as soon as possible, so please be patient. In the meantime good luck with all your blogging!

Learn How To Blog

Blogging is just writing, right? Well partly yes and mostly no. Clients and email subscribers will know that I recommend and promote Yaro Starak’s Blog Mastermind course. Not only because I get some affiliate commission (which I do if you sign up using my link) but also as a graduate of the Blog Mastermind course myself I know the value of what it can teach you. Even if you don’t use my affiliate link I strongly urge you to take a look at the course and see if it’s the right fit for you. Does it fit with your long term blogging plans? The constraints on your time? Your budget?

For those who don’t know, Yaro Starak, is a well-respected blogger and blog trainer who generates a steady $10,000 to $20,000 each and every month.

As part of the re-opening of Blog Mastermind he has released a free video that takes you inside his Internet business, which is based on just one blog.

Conversion Blogging

I’ve watched first video, which is 32 minutes long (grab a drink) and it really is worth your time. The marketing spiel lives up to the content this time, as the video talks about:

– Why blogs are the only Web 2.0 marketing tool you will ever need
– Exactly how Yaro uses his blog to build a MASSIVE email list
– How just a blog can turn you into the No. 1 authority in your market
– What methods Yaro uses to translate his blog into a steady cash-flow stream
– How you can replicate Yaro’s methods using just one blog and get started in minutes

Plus you can sign up for another free video on Income Generation, and access to the excellent free Blog Profits Blueprint PDF report. Even if you simply watch these free videos and read the free report I think you’ll learn a lot. If you’ve got some spare time, why not take a look now.
