The speech I’m sharing here was given to a private audience in Denver in May 2011 at Simple Wealth’s Authority Formula Seminar.
It also was voted BEST SPEECH by the audience at that event. 20 other online business experts took part and this won the audience vote.
In this video I talk about the “The Bloodhound Model”, which is an idea that Justyna and I stumbled upon by accident way back in 2008. It resulted in a simple blog bringing in $930,000 in revenue in its first 18 months. It also established this blog as the dominant blog in its niche. In this 17 min presentation I lay out what we did step-by-step.
Greg Habstritt, founder of SimpleWealth called this method “possibly the single most effective way of building a revenue-generating website that I’ve ever seen.”
If you’re an author or aspiring thought leader, this model allows you to dominate your niche, get high google rankings, build a list and best of all, generate revenue, all by using a blog in a creative way. But it’s not what you expect. You can dominate a niche by being like Stephen Spielberg or Roger Ebert. In short, the content creator, or the content reviewer. Here I show why you might want to think like Ebert.
