Tired Of The Same Old Promises?

My course (along with Andrew of course), Income Blogging Guide closes at 11.59pm EST tomorrow (Wednesday 27th January 2010). We won’t be taking any new members for at least a few months so we can concentrate on our hard working current members and give them the best support possible. At least you won’t hear from me for a while.

If you want some realistic promises and expectations, take a look now, or all you’ll be stuck with over the next few months is Gabe and Max’s internet thing (see video below). Quality stuff.

Win A Free income Blogging Guide Membership!

This contest is now closed!

On 6th January Andrew Rondeau (www.WeBuildYourBlog.com fame) and I will be launching our brand new Income Blogging Guide course and to celebrate we are holding a free contest.

First, let me tell you a little about the Income Blogging Guide Course.

It’s not just about blogging…

It’s a six month course and covers all the stages required to build a successful online business generating income and giving you some freedom back, including Blogging Essentials, List Building, Traffic Generating, Product Creation, Copywriting and Outsourcing.

The key to our step-by-step “Income Blogging Guide Course” is the way and format in which it is delivered. Each week we provide a single lesson, with a few simple tasks to be completed, and it takes no more than a few hours per week. We provide the specific and detailed instructions to follow.

Each lesson assumes you have no blogging or technical knowledge at all and shows you exactly what to do in a step-by-step approach, using screen images and videos.

No overwhelm, no guessing, just an uncomplicated straightforward plan to blogging income that anyone can follow. You will literally have your first blog set up in under an hour, and have money-making traffic within weeks.

Plus we have several ‘critical extras’ that make the difference between success and failure when creating an on-line business.

The Prize on offer:

Return Of Membership Site Mastermind

Well, I’m back from a short break and BlogWorldExpo in Las Vegas. As always with these type of things, my head is buzzing full of ideas, I just need time to implement them!

If you’re on my email list you will have already heard it, but as we know, Membership sites are a popular way of making money online, and the model was talked about extensively at the conference. Coincidentally, my online friend Yaro Starak has announced he is re-opening the doors to Membership Site Mastermind next week.

I don’t promote many training courses, and all I do I have personally been on myself and this is no exception (my WordPress Blog Training Videos is the result).

He’s released a couple of videos in the past which are well worth watching. The one below is The Blue Sky Video, and there is also The Slide Show Video.

Membership video

As usual I offer no incentives (aka bribes) for signing up for this course through my affiliate link, I want you to sign up for it if you think it’s for you, will benefit you and help you achieve the lifestyle you want. Enjoy the videos though!

Oh, and if you notice something new about the comments, I’ve installed JS Kit Echo. They have to do a manual import of my old comments, but an enhanced service is now available, feel free to try it out! I’ll be writing a post on my experience with it another time.

Behind-The-Scenes Of WordPress Blog Video Training

I know some of you are interested in what you get when you buy my blog training videos. So to answer that I’ve created a short video that is now up on the sales page.

Theme Wars Launches!

Theme Wars is an interesting new concept from Unique Blog Designs, the geniuses behind my blog theme. Essentially it’s a blog theme store with a twist.

1. Each week, any blog designer can submit an entry (his/her original design) into our “Weekly War.”
2. The Weekly War will be a contest to design a particular type of theme (e.g. magazine, business, etc.) as voted on by the community (via poll) the week before.
3. The top two designs which the community votes for will be sold in our Theme Store. The winning designers will receive 25% and 10%, respectively, each time his/her winning design sells.

Theme Wars

There will probably be between 3 and 8 news themes each week and it seems a great way to get fresh new designs for bloggers, and for blog designers to get paid or their work. Take a look.

Blog Training Videos Coming Soon

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been quietly working on some WordPress blog training videos. These videos answer common questions such as:

Blog Training Videos

– Registering a domain name, getting web hosting and changing nameservers.
– Using FileZilla FTP.
– Installing WordPress manually and automatically.
– How to create new content, add images etc.
– How to manage plugins, themes and widgets.
– How to set up AWeber and Get Response and manage email lists.
– How to use Feedburner.
– And much more!

In fact there will be over 40 videos that you can buy all at once, or in 3 monthly payments. Each video can be downloaded in various formats, Flash, WMV, MP4 (for iPods), and audio MP3 and PDF transcript.

They’ll initially only be available to purchase via my newsletter list, so sign up on the right hand side (click here if reading via RSS) to get the announcement and link to the sales page. Shortly after that they’ll be available to all!

Even more good news is on the way in the form of my affiliate scheme for these blog training videos and my Complete Blog Setup package. Stay tuned for further details when I have all the kinks worked out!

Rethinking Membership Sites

If you think this post is going to be a promotion for Yaro Starak’s Membership Site Mastermind, then you’re half right.

Like almost everything I promote, I like to do a soft sell, and I like to have personal experience of the product. I’ve been through Membership Site Mastermind myself in it’s original form and enjoyed it a lot, though have yet to take action on it – and the course really benefits from taking action while you go along.

Today, Yaro launched his free report – Membership Site Masterplan that is a 72 page report that teaches how to plan, launch and profit from a successful membership site. It’s pure CONTENT, plus an invitation to join his six week membership site training course.

It will make you rethink membership sites, the software that is (or is not) required, and frankly, how easy they are to do. I’ve spent a good deal of time thinking about membership sites and also about product launches and how they fit in with my client’s aspirations. I have the beginning of an idea that I think you’ll be interested in, but I will work on it and see – strangely enough it’s not a membership site…
