SPI 028 : Be Everywhere – Building a Profitable BRAND by Thinking Outside the Blog

The Smart Passive Income Podcast Logo

Note – a book entitled BE EVERYWHERE is being worked on as we speak! Please subscribe to the blog to stay updated.

In this special session of The Smart Passive Income Podcast, I share a re-recording of the presentation I did at Blog World Expo in Los Angeles last week.

I also include a YouTube video that has the slides that I had prepared as well, although if you’re going to listen to the audio you don’t need the slides in order to get the message I’m trying to share.

Again, this is not the actual recording of my session at Blog World Expo. As I mentioned in my last post, and at the beginning of this podcast episode, things didn’t go quite as planned during the live presentation. You can learn more about exactly what happened (and have a nice laugh too) by clicking here to see exactly what went wrong.

My presentation is all about Being Everywhere, expanding outside of the blog to bring new eyes into your brand and business. I share some very compelling data from a survey I did on SPI a few weeks ago, and I also share a ton of tips and strategies for all the platforms I discuss.

If you’ve ever felt like the growth of your blog has hit a plateau, and you’re looking for information about how to get off of that pleateau and get back into growth mode, this presentation is for you.

In this session you’ll hear me talk about:

  • A homeless man who changed my view on branding and doing business online.
  • The top three ways that people have found me who are now reading my blog – and it’s not Google, Facebook or Twitter.
  • Three things that should absolutely  be happening on your blog first before reaching out and finding new audiences.
  • How to tap into untapped resources for bloggers like iTunes and YouTube.
  • A ton of tips and tricks to make sure you give yourself the best chance to stand out of the crowd and be found.
  • How social media and your email list play a role in Being Everywhere.
  • The power of The Content Trifecta.
  • And a whole lot more…
There is over an hour of content here, and I’m super stoked to still be getting compliments about my presentation from those who attended my session at Blog World Expo. I hope those of you were were unable to make it enjoy it as well.

    Awesome! Now I know what I’m doing for the next hour and 11 minutes. Definitely will share after. Already 10 minutes in and already can tell it’s great content, to no surprise.

    • Pat

      Thanks Nick – would love to know what you think after you have a listen. Thanks for being an awesome supporter of SPI!

      • http://simplylearnbusiness.com Nick

        Wow….Simply Wow! Great amount of content. Absolutely extraordinary. And no problem at all. It’s so much great stuff. Now I just have to put it into action. That’s gonna take a while!

  • http://www.tshepomashigo.com Tshepo Mashigo

    Great Talk Pat. Keep up the good Work mate. You continue to make us proud.

    • Pat

      I always try my best. Thanks Tshepo!

  • http://airbrushdoc.com/ Sergej Voronko

    Definitely going to watch video on youtube. Thanks Pat for your effort

    • Pat

      Cool Sergej, let me know what you think after you finish! All the best!

      • http://airbrushdoc.com/ Sergej Voronko

        Well Pat, great presentation!

        Beside that you have remind me of something I wanted to do with my blog but have forgot, I have found some pieces of information that is new for me.

        I’ve seen presentations from other bloggers but this was the best presentation ever ;)

        :) I have to fight with my laziness and start working

  • http://www.viperchill.com Glen Allsopp

    Wish I didn’t have such crappy internet so I could watch it.

    Someone take notes for me ;)

    • Pat

      You can’t watch YouTube videos? Where are you?

  • http://www.personal-success-factors.com Steve-Personal Success Factors

    Pat, thanks for the extremely helpful information and overview of how you unite traffic with value. I found it interesting that you never promote anything on your email list. I’ve also listened to other respected email marketers who have the opposite view. But I like your approach, along with the good karma marketing approach promoting by Mary Jantch and Barrie Davenport of A-List Blog Marketing (http://alistblogmarketing.com/

    • http://www.GanderCo.com Gary Anderson II

      I believe Pat doesn’t promote products in his emails because his priority is to help others first knowing that “The Money” will follow by force of nature. ;)

    • Pat

      Yep – I’m very familiar with Mary and Barrie’s approach, and if you’ve been around my brand for a while (which I know you have), you’ll know that I really believe in the whole online karma thing. Make the internet a better place and you be rewarded one way or another. :)

  • http://successonmymind.com Sean Davis

    I think I’m going with the video this time. I want to see the slides! Hopefully, I can sit in one spot for an hour and 13 minutes, though lol.

    I’m sure it will be well worth it.

    • Pat

      Thanks for the shout outs on Twitter and G+! I appreciate it!

  • http://www.lanikee.com Lani – Aloha

    Aloha Pat, I luv your post here and you simplify it for anyone to understand what you are sharing. Your video also, shares tons of value and the only thing I think others can do is get started and follow your procedure.

    You are passionate and diligent in your online marketing. Glad I came by and thanks for sharing. Mahalo, Lani :)

    • Pat

      My pleasure Lani! Aloha, and you totally make me want to go back to Hawaii. It’s been too long! (Just a couple of years :P)

  • http://www.investorzblog.com/ Tony @ Investorz Blog

    Great podcast episode, Pat! Honestly, I think your’s is the best. None of the other podcasters (eg Copyblogger guys) get as personal as you do, which is why you’re so successful!

    • Pat

      Thank you Tony – I truly appreciate that! Means a lot!

  • http://www.ramblingsofawahm.com/my-7-step-blog-marketing-plan/ Allie | Ramblings of a WAHM

    Pat,

    What can I possibly say but “Wow!”

    When I first found you over a year ago I was lost. I’m not so lost now because of you and the amazing bloggers you have pointed me to.

    This video seems like a culmination of everything you have been telling us to do, in one short hour. And some more….

    You always have something new to share. And what is special about it is you did it. You didn’t just read that something works and then wrote about, you actually do it, get results and show us.

    I know, this is no revelation.

    Actually, what I came to write was thanks for the video. The best part, for me, was that piggyback trick. I’m heading over to YouTube now to try it out.

    You rock!

    ~Allie

    • Pat

      Awesome Allie! Way to take action right away!

      For the tag trick, it’ll take a while for your videos to get to where they should be in the related video sections of other videos, and it’s best to do this for brand new videos that you publish, but it’s an easy thing that only takes a second so you might as well try it out!

      Cheers, and thanks for listening to the podcast and being an awesome fan!

  • http://www.startyoungfinishfirst.com Tram Tran@startyoung, finishfirst

    Pat, this is awsome. your story has touched me so much. It confirms my belief on what path I should take both in life and in business. You rock Pat! Keep rocking!

    • Pat

      Thanks so much! You rock too! :)

  • http://www.quitmediocrity.com Jeremiah

    Pat… you had me at hello!

    That’s why I hung out for over an hour watching your video. Great stuff man, as always.

    #BeEverywhere

    • Pat

      Hehe, I love the tagline! ;)

      Thanks for your support Jeremiah, and for taking the time to listen! Cheers!

  • http://www.mymultipleincomes.com Robert

    Pat thank you for sharing this. I was sad to not be able to make it to LA to see it the first time.

    • Pat

      It’s all good Robert – that’s why I re-recorded the session for you here! I hope you enjoyed it!

  • http://PodcastAnswerMan.com Cliff Ravenscraft

    Pat, thank you so much for the shout out for my podcast tutorial. You rock my friend! Great presentation, even the 2nd time around. :)

    • Pat

      Thanks Cliff, and I’m sorry I couldn’t make it to your presentation. There were so many presentations I wanted to attend going on at the same time, it was crazy!

  • http://stellarmine.com/what-separates-a-good-entrepreneur-from-a-rich-one-quick-chat-with-neil-patel/ Dilanka Wettewa

    Hey Pat!

    Thanks a A LOT for posting the talk and sharing it with the world. I think it’s fantastic. Essentially the gist of it is to be a media whore (in a good and professional way of course) :p — Thanks!

    Dilanka

    • Pat

      Haha, yeah that’s one way to put it! Maybe that should have been the title of the post and presentation, hehe!

  • http://www.tinkeringwisdom.blogspot.com Rishabh

    Hi Pat

    This was a mind blowing video…..
    very helpful content, i want to say Thankyou…

    • Pat

      Your welcome! Thanks for taking the time to watch Rishabh!

  • http://successonmymind.com Sean Davis

    I got the chance to watch the entire video. I needed to work out today so I figured I’d make the video full screen and knock out a nice home workout. Worked out perfectly!

    The content was great. I really appreciate the numbered tips to help with each of the different things you were suggesting. It makes it a lot easier for those trying to get their feet wet in unfamiliar areas.

    I just hit my dry erase board with the task of getting started with podcasts. I already have another YouTube channel with almost 10,000 views so I am familiar with the camera. I need to make a channel for my blog, though.

    You have a gift of telling us what we already know but making it sound like it’s something we can do too. Most of the guys in your shoes can’t fully connect with everyday people. You’ve got it down, though. Not editing your podcasts definitely helps.

    Anyway, I need to go work on getting this shiny bald head and kool-aid smile EVERYWHERE. Time to create my brand!

  • http://www.tinkeringwisdom.blogspot.com Rishabh

    I had a question…

    I have an ebook How to send it automatically to people who subscribe to my blog..?

    • Pat

      If you use an email service link Aweber, you could automatically send a followup people to those who subscribe that includes a link to a page on your site that has the eBook for download. You can use a plugin like the Robots Meta WordPress Plugin to make it a noindex, nofollow site so the search engines can’t find it and only those who subscribe to your email list will. Hope this helps!

  • http://elevationlife.com Bryan Thompson

    Pat,

    Listening right now. Thanks so much for your resources, man. You have no idea how many people you’re investing in. Well, maybe you do. :)

    • Pat

      Thanks Bryan – I hope it turns out to be a helpful presentation for you! Cheers, and all the best!

  • http://www.GanderCo.com Gary Anderson II

    Pertaining to approx 9 minutes into video:
    I am an SEO nut…. I love SEO. BUT! I’ve realized that FAR more of my traffic (I had more traffic last winter) comes from being everywhere and from other bloggers.

    Advanced “Newbie”,

    Gary Anderson II

    • Pat

      For blogs that want brand recognition and a community, I’ve always found that more traffic comes from being everywhere, like you confirmed. For niche sites, of course, it’s a bit different as most of the traffic will usually come from target and long tail keywords.

      • http://www.GanderCo.com Gary Anderson II

        Oh yes! I forgot to mention that about Niche Blogs (ssshhh, don’t tell anybody, but I also like to play with “Sniper Sites” too)…

        In those cases, SEO is the way to go ;)

        -Gary

  • http://www.AffiliateHocasi.com Batuhan ?ASI

    Hello Pat

    Best Regards

    • Pat

      Wow that’s awesome! I’m glad I could keep your attention for that long! That’s great and thanks for watching! :)

  • http://www.virtualbusinesslifestyle.com Chris C. Ducker

    Hey Dude

    Even though I saw these slides before you presented, even though I was there in the audience, and even though I videoed a lot of it (and have watched it back!)… watching it back again, now, is still eye-opening and thoroughly enjoyable.

    What a great topic to speak on, and at such a great event, too.

    Keep rockin’ it out, brotha. Proud to call you my mate. You’re an alright ‘bloke’.

    ;-)

    Chris

    • Pat

      Thanks Chris! I’m glad you enjoyed the presentation, and that many times too!

      It was a pleasure to hang out with you, and I hope we can do it again soon! Cheers mate!

  • http://www.homebusinessideashq.info Mike

    Pat,

    Your speech was great, you handled it so well, so smooth! I think you continue to provide total value to readers and listener despite making it top! Your podcast and income reports are inspiring and educational at the same time.

  • http://womenswaytowealth.com Cassie | womenswaytowealth

    Thanks Pat, such rich and valuable content (as always). Congrats on your Blogworld face save, and for being nominated for the Podcast Awards. Yours in the bag soon.

    You are truly an inspiration and I’m looking forward to listening to the MP3 and putting lots of new strategies in action on my blog.
    Cassie.

    re: Social media responsible ‘Facebook’ keyword that is finding SPI?

    That’s interesting! Usually when I see these random keywords… I usually think I have a certain picture or image that is triggering the google search. I have a dating site and we get visitors that had entered the keyword “hot black girl” or “blondes have more fun”… Random but it could reflect some of our content indirectly.

    Perhaps you have some high value content surrounding a ‘facebook’ image. Perhaps the video on how to create a ‘facebook’ page? Keyword: “Facebook,” albeit a general term – i’d assume is highly competitive for board and exact search – so you must be killing it!

  • Glenn Cowan

    Hi Pat,

    This post is MASSIVE & I dont mean in lenghth but in the quality of the info, as always thanks for sharing it :)

    I got the most outta the YouTube vid, particulary the section that you talked about using YouTube and how many of your website visitors came to you from that channel alone, seriously big numbers – 16%!!!! WOW!!!

    I know you have talked about it before but now I must really get me Ar… I mean backside in gear and get on YouTube.

    Thanks so much for all the great info & true inspiration.

    All the best for the futiure,
    Glenn

    Hi Pat,

    Thanks for this super informative video! You answered my question of how to survive Google Panda, which is to not depend on Google for all your traffic but to be in other places like YouTube and iTunes. I need to start doing YouTube videos and I have no excuse now.

    Thanks,

  • http://isabella-rose.tumblr.com/ Isabella

    I first discovered your blog through that how to set up a fanpage video! It was one of the first videos I’d watched that actually showed something useful. Loved your presentation, especially the bits about how to set up videos for Youtube. As ever, all the nitty gritty detail that people find so useful was included.

  • http://www.professionalcontentcreation.com Rebecca Livermore

    Pat,

    I really appreicate your helpful tips. The timing of it is perfect for me, as I’m in the process of transitioning from full-time employment to working from home full time. Especially since I have turned in my notice, I can’t help but be aware of how much I need to focus on my weak areas. Because of that, I especially appreciate your video tips because video is my weakest area.

  • http://www.startyoungfinishfirst.com Tram Tran

    Pat, I received your newsletter today asking if I have read any good content and I can’t help but hurry to your blog and share. You really are everywhere, even in people’s mail boxes;)
    Btw, here is the list of 20 world youngest founders who started the biggest companies. The list range from 17 to 25 years. It’s totally awesome to be inspired by their stories. Yes! It takes hard work, but being significant and make a change to the world is possible

    Thanks for enriching me into all this. I’m totally new to how to use all of this stuff and starting to realize the potential, being this rather (traditional) NLP trainer and consultant/coach. You definitly planted a lot of seeds. I’ll start to reseach my market; Sweden on youtube and itunes, Keep up the good work!!

    Yay! I was just chatting with a friend and noticed that you had posted this and told her. She kinda laughed and said, “Don’t you ever get enough of Pat?” I said, “Are you kidding? He’s the cool kid on the block!” Can’t wait to check this out!

  • Thomas Yates

    Listened twice through already, well up there as one of the best Podcast episodes you have done in my opinion.

    Don’t know about others but I like the longer episodes you do, especially as you pack them full of great info. Keep up the good work

  • http://castmybest.com Filipe Moreira

    Hey Pat!

    What a great pack of content at this podcast, uh?

    I’ll really apply much of this on my own website and strategies for sure! This thing of being everywhere is, certainly, the way to be relevant on the internet and to create a really fancy brand.

    I’m expecting having my podcast and some videos along the way real soon.

    There’s just one month now that my blog is out there, and I’m already amazed with the results I’ve got until now. It’s all about having great content out there, and we’re up to go! Some fixes can be done after we launch a website, so I think it’s also one of the secrets.

    That’s it! Keep it up, and… God bless you! :)

    Hi Pat, that was a top level presentation:
    - easy to stay interested and engaged.
    - very focused and not too long winded.

    Although I’m a new visitor to your site, I feel like this tutorial session taught me a valuable lessons and therefore I feel I should become one of you customers.

    Thank you,

  • http://lifestoogood.net Alan Chatfield

    Hey Pat,

    I actually just wanted to leave you a comment not just about this podcast but about your podcast series in general. I wasn’t sure where to leave this comment so thought here, i.e. the latest podcast is as good a place as any.

    I have recently started listening to your podcast series and want to thank you for putting it together. Not just the content (your content is 1st class but I do agree with you the internet is full of lots of great content these days) but particularly the way you deliver it.

    It seems effortless but you put yourself out there, you challenge yourself and I’m sure a lot of hard work goes into what you’re doing (even if you’re loving it it’s still hard work) – you have a real talent. You may say it’s just being yourself but most people would struggle to deliver being just themselves anywhere near as well as you do.

    Keep doing what you’re doing – AWESOME!! (you’ve even got a Brit guy saying Awesome!! all the time between cups of tea!)

    thanks again & take care,
    Alan

    Hey Pat ! You know I’m a big fan. Congrats on everything. I’ve been with SPI for a pretty long time and I have to tell you. It’s worth the hour + in time to learn this information (You did spring some new things on me) But for those new to the site if you follow you will have success.

  • http://wowconsulting.co.uk Jan Willis

    Hey Pat. Great presentation and you have definitely inspired me to get podcasting. I look forward to hearing more of your content.

  • http://www.aaacbc.com Michel

    Hi Pat, great stuff as usual. I like your blogs and I agree with you that in order to be successful and to reach the biggest possible audience you need to be everywhere and I think tools like datsyn.com are very useful to achieve that goal.

    Glad to hear that you confirm what I was thinking for some time already. Hope you don’t mind that I will use some of your ideas in the future. Look forward to hear more from you and I would love to have a chat with you on skype. My skype ID is “aaacbc”

    Keep up the great work Pat and hope to hear from you soon – cheers

    Loved the presentation/video/podcast!
    After some of your ‘inspirational videos’ i thought I’d share some sweet hard core Rocky Balboa inspiration video :) http://youtu.be/V1tXhJniSEc (0:47 sec)

    And… have you ever thought on doing a ‘Website laboratory’ webinar, i’d know i would be VERY happy if you’ll have a look at my site with some improvement tips (and i’m sure i’m not the only one).

    Thanks!

  • http://www.paulayling.me Paul

    Hi Pat

    long time listener to the podcast. I currently am trying to get some traction with a business I am starting up called http://www.freeeventsthisweek.com. I am making use of videos and I have a question about tagging in youtube.

    I was following your advice on finding a popular videos and using thier tags however I added a tag called FETW (my abbrieviation) to the video and when I type that phrase into youtube search I get a bunch of videos (not including mine) that do not have FETW anywhere on the page (including the tags). Any ideas as to how youtube is deciding to present me with the videos?

    Have a great new year Pat

    All the best

  • http://ClassicRockJimmy.com Jim McKee

    Pat, your podcast mentioned different ways that people stumbled upon your site. Here’s mine (the chain of events started maybe 4 or 5 years ago):
    1. Heard a commercial on the radio about turning debt into wealth. It sounded scammish so I did a Google search.
    2. The Google search led me to a better source on the subject: Dave Ramsey. I started listening to the podcast version of his radio show.
    3. From Dave Ramsey, I learned about Dan Miller.
    4. From Dan Miller, I learned about Cliff Ravenscraft.
    5. From Cliff Ravenscraft, I learned about you.

    Keep up the good work!

    • Pat

      Wow – that’s really cool Jim! Thanks for sharing!

      Any insight on that debt to wealth stuff?

      • http://www.classicrockjimmy.com Jim McKee

        Nah, I couldn’t find anything that sounded legit, so I let it go. I still hear those commercials occasionally, though (the guy’s name is John Cummuta).

    Hi Pat … fabulous and insightful presentation! Pure gold to kick off my 2012! A deserved kick in the butt for me too for all the things I knew I should have already been doing … LOL

    Love your style of just putting it out there and keeping it real. Builds the trust and confidence of others in you. I’ve endeavoured to emulate it offline over the years .. next step for me to do online.

    Question … transcript available for this SPI episode?

    Pat,
    Just FYI, I found you through iTunes while looking for more Dave Ramsey stuff to listen to. THANK YOU FOR BEING ON ITUNES! I finished this Podcast about 2 weeks ago and then watched the YouTube video last weekend. Because of you I got into internet marketing and everything that goes along with it. Just wanted to thank you. I also wanted to let you know that I made my first, well I can’t say dollar, .45 cents through adsense. Its not much but its very motivating. To tie this all in, it was this post that led me to make a few YouTUbe tutorials and a twitter account. The tweets are what brought the visitors who clicked through (since Im 83rd for my keyword). Keep up the fantastic work and again, THANK YOU!

Right now I have my blog and youtube, but I really need to get on this podcast game. It’s like I only have two parts of the trifecta and I need my third piece! Thanks pat your awesome.

  • http://betterimagephoto.com/blog/emotional-wedding-vows Scott Painter

    Youtube is my new SEO friend. Professional videographers are purest who believe other sites like vimeo host better resolution videos. But you can’t dismiss that 2.5 million people put the term “wedding” into youtube. The youtube keyword search tool was also indispensable. The term I wanted to use, cinematic, didn’t even show up.

    This will be the first of many wedding videos going up on youtube.

  • Mike

    How many seconds to make a first impression? Could you repeat that again?

  • Mike

    Sorry about the snarky comment I made previously. Repetition drives me nuts. Anyway, I love the youtube video segment. Good stuff.

    For everyone looking to be everywhere another idea to be seen every is have and give away items with your logo on it. It can be pens, shirts, hats etc. In general pens are usually seen the most on an impression per cost basis. Hats are a good option too but they cost more. Here is a link to some data on what items are seen more.

    If you go to any promotional products company they should be able to easily do up some items with your logo on them for relatively inexpensively.

    I’ve listened to a bunch of your podcasts and this one was the best one yet. It is so packed with great content, and I appreciate everything you did to put this together. Thank you so much.

    Hey Pat,

    What a great podcast! Thank you so much for sharing. I have just started a blog and I’m currently setting up my social channels, including Youtube. You mention the format of your video’s and reference a guy called Phil and green screens. Can you point me in the right direction on where to find his content?

    Keep up the awesome work. I’m loving the help and inspiration you share within your podcast show.

    Cheers,
    John

    Hey Pat, I started listening to this podcast and wanted to hop on and let you know how I ended up “finding” your blog and following you, I think you might enjoy the story.

    I first discovered you on iTunes, but after listening to a couple episodes of your SPI podcast I didn’t really click with you so I unsubscribed. Later, however, I saw an interview you did with Michael Hyatt on his blog about ethical affiliate marketing. I was so impressed by your integrity that I came to your site and started reading your blog, and eventually re-subscribed to your podcast.

    Since then you have been one of my most valuable resources and I want to thank you for being awesome! Thanks Pat!

    I just discovered this a couple of days ago. Thank you for creating this. I have now listened to this three times and I am working on my fourth time. Not only was it enough to push me over to finally creating our first podcast, but it had my renew my interest and what I needed to do to make my videos more effective.

    Thanks for sharing Pat – this is an awesome message, with great tips and insights.

    You’ve been a great inspiration to be over the past year or so and even gave me a little kick-start to getting my own podcast off the ground.

    Keep up the good work Pat.

    Speak soon.
