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

    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.

  2. My August 2010 Monthly Income Report


    passive incomeEach month, I like to write a detailed report about where my online income comes from, as well as report on the things that I’ve been up to that may have had an impact on my earnings. I do this for two primary reasons: to help myself keep track of how my businesses and brands are progressing, and more importantly to help you learn what to do (and what not to do) during your online business or blogging adventures.

    I hope you enjoy this month’s report.

    Let’s get right to it…

  3. 7 Ways to Be Everywhere—Building a Brand Online


    building an online brandLast week, an SPI reader asked me the following question:

    “Pat. You seem to be EVERYWHERE online. Everywhere I go, people are talking about you and your name always comes up. How do you do it?”

    To be honest, I never believed I would become this successful online, especially with SPI—a blog in the “make money online” niche, which as you probably know is wildly over saturated. Although my success is partially accidental I know exactly why I’m here.

    What it really comes down to is this:

    If you want to become successful online, you must think about what you do as building a brand. In order to build a brand, you must do what you can to be everywhere.

    A successful blogger is not just a blogger. True—it’s the blog where things get started. It’s where authority is constructed and content is published. But if you stick to just a blog, you’ll be just that—stuck to your blog.

    Your blog or your website is only the beginning. It’s your hub, your homebase where people can go to find out more about who you are and what you do, but it’s also just one piece of the giant puzzle that is your brand—your omnipresent, influential and (if applicable), money making brand.

    Below are 7 ways to simply be everywhere: (more…)

  4. My October 2009 Monthly Income Report


    dollar-signAnother month down, another monthly report to share!

    It seems like a lot of time has passed since my last report, but I think that’s because I’ve been focusing a lot on creating quality posts on a consistent schedule for you to read. I feel, and I think most of you would agree, that the content here on the blog this past month has been some of the best so far. It shows in the number of comments and in the amount of traffic I’ve been seeing lately. For all of you readers out there, new and old school – I just want to say thanks.

    Important Going-Ons in October

    On a personal note, April (my wife), just entered her third trimester! She’s doing well, and the baby is healthy and moving around…a lot. Just the other day, I put my hand on her belly and felt the baby slowly move across where my hand was. It kind of felt like one of those back massagers you put on a chair, with the balls that move in a circular motion that you’re supposed to lean your back against, but in super slow motion. It was crazy!!!

    Online, a lot of crazy good things have been happening too. (more…)

  5. My September 2009 Monthly Income Report


    dollar-signYes – it’s that time of the month again! My monthly report for September 2009 is due!

    I love writing these reports because it’s a great way for me to summarize and look back at what I’ve accomplished in the past month. It makes me think about what I could have done better and what I will do the next time I’m face to face with the same situations. On top of that, and I think what motivates more than anything to keep this up, is that many of you seem to enjoy these posts too. I hope it’s not just because you like seeing my earnings, but because of the lessons I’ve learned that you can hopefully apply online as well. (more…)
