You’ve heard of passive income before, right?

That’s the holy grail of any business. Work for 5 hours and make $10,000.

Lately, though, I’ve been interested in something else.

Passive traffic.

Why?

To grow any business you have to have traffic. Walmart, Lifehacker and Google all have the exact same business model.

Get traffic and then monetize it.

So it stands to reason Continue Reading…

Do you wish you were healthier?

I do. Working from home has been a disaster on the “don’t eat tons of junk food” front.

Then last week I finally snapped.

I moved our extra refrigerator into the garage, bought a chain and locked up all the junk that I’m tempted to eat during the day.

The key to the lock went in my wife’s car so it would be Continue Reading…

It’s Tuesday and time for the mailbag.

Whether you are stuck in a cubicle or you’re sitting on the couch eating bon-bons and watching Oprah, it’s time to make your day better.

The Tool of the Week

What if there was a psychic tool that would tell you the exact topics you need to write about?

What if that same tool showed the exact language your customers use, whether more people talked about those topics last month than this month and the exact number of people actively searching for your topics?

Would that be helpful?

How much would you pay for it?

My friend asked me this recently.

My answer? $300 per month.

His answer? It’s free and it’s called Keyword Planner, you idiot! Continue Reading…

It was 8:15 a.m. on Monday, September 15th.

My day was completely planned out. I was gearing up to launch the Vault in two weeks and was on a tight deadline.

And then Twitter happened.

I came across a case study by Josh Earl where he showed how he collected over 60,000 emails by hosting a giveaway.

60,000 email subscribers? In 10 days? That completely blew me away.

So I canceled all of my plans and set up my own giveaway.

3 hours later it was live.

How to come up with good ideas for guest posts

Bryan Harris —  by Bryan Harris - Get free updates of new posts here

Have you ever written a guest post before?

“Just write a guest post,” they say.

“It’s great for growing an email list,” they say.

I have a confession to make.

I am 4 months behind on writing guest posts.

Why?

Every time I go to write a post, I freeze up. Writer’s block. Procrastination. Call it whatever you want. But if you’ve ever TRIED to guest post regularly, you know exactly what I mean.

The last two guest posts I’ve written have generated over 1,000 new email subscribers to this site, but for some unknown reason it’s incredibly hard for me to produce them on a regular basis.

Writing for my site is easy. But writing for someone else is terrifying.

  • What should I write about?
  • How detailed should the article be?
  • Can I backlink to my site from the article?

…you know the drill.

Well, recently I stumbled upon an interesting little hack that’s helped me get back on track and avoid all of these paralyzing questions.

Whether you are a guest-posting pro or have never written one in your life, use this to come up with killer ideas for your next article.

Here it is… Continue Reading…
