Copy My Blogging System To Sell Your Online Course. Follow My Step-By-Step Blueprint, Updated For 2017
In the second half of 2007 I was contacted about whether I was interested in buying the domain name, becomeablogger.com.
Initially I said no because I was wearing my “too busy” hat at the time. A few days later I changed my mind and decided to grab the domain for an idea I had previously considered.
As those who have studied Blog Mastermind know, I don’t provide absolute beginner training in the program on the simple technical tasks, like buying a domain name, setting up hosting and installing WordPress.
Instead I recommend my students immediately begin outsourcing the technical aspect of blogging if that is not your strong point. In the long run it’s definitely a smarter tactic, something I wish I did myself from day one, but instead I decided to struggle with technology myself and thus slow my progress down considerably.
In 2007 I started to attract more press coverage. To leverage the publicity I directed the attention towards my Blog Profits Blueprint download form, which I realized was not the smartest thing to do. The Blueprint is a great report, but it’s really suited towards more experienced bloggers and is not a good entry level book.
People who discover me via mainstream press are usually brand new to anything about making money online, thus they really need a very basic introduction to the world of blogging.
I wanted to make a site where I could offer basic training to get a blog set up using video tutorials, so I could direct people to the site as a first contact point with my training and blogging in general. I wanted a “doorway” site into the world of blogging and also to begin a relationship with my business. Something I could easily say on radio or podcast interviews or in emails from newbies.
When the domain Becomeablogger.com was offered to me I thought it was perfect for my objective. Initially the project was put on the back burner while I was busy with Blog Mastermind creating the lessons, but I kept my eyes open and put some feelers out for someone good at video to produce the tutorials.
I met Gideon Shalwick at a conference in Brisbane and began watching his work interviewing Internet marketing experts at his site Internet Marketing Wizards. I was impressed with his video production and asked if he was interested in the Become A Blogger project and he said yes.
Three months later, and we have just finished the final touches on the site.
If you are new to blogging and you need help setting up a WordPress blog, then you definitely want to check out www.becomeablogger.com.
The site currently has a series of ten videos covering:
Many of the readers of this blog already have WordPress installed and these videos will be too basic for you, however I hope that whenever someone asks you about how to get into blogging that you send them towards BecomeABlogger.com as a great place to learn the basics.
I’d also really appreciate it if you could write a post to your blog about these new videos as I’m sure all the beginners out there would appreciate knowing the site exists.
The videos are 100% free and as you will see, are easy to follow and of a high standard. You are also welcome to embed the videos in your blog if you like, you can grab the code from within any video.
I’m distributing the Blog Profits Blueprint from Become A Blogger as an option for those people who decide they want to pursue an income stream from blogging after their blog is set up.
I spent several thousand dollars to have Becomeablogger.com created, and if you are wondering why, it’s because I hope to foster new relationships with my email list from people who subscribe via the site. I also hope it becomes a really popular destination for anyone new to blogging.
So what are you waiting for, go visit – BecomeABlogger.com – and tell your friends!
