SPI 013: Is Giving Away Free Information Bad? Here Are Some Answers

By Pat Flynn on

Note: Cliff also joined me on AskPat 0237 to talk about paid premium podcasts. Click the link to listen to that episode.

In this session of the Smart Passive Income Podcast, I bring back a topic of a recent post I wrote, Is Giving Away Free Information Bad, and respond to some of the 200+ comments with the help of a special guest, Cliff from, who was a guest in Session 5 of the SPI podcast.

To be honest, there really is no right or wrong answer here, but Cliff and I share exactly what free information (and the extend to which we provide free information) has done for our own businesses, and what it could do for yours too.

Thank you for all of you who posted comments on that post. All of them were extremely thought-provoking and I read and respond to a number of them during the recording, with credit to the commenter, of course.

I hope you enjoy this session! Be sure to check out what my voice sounds like when I’m sick.
