My New Getting Started Page Is Live!

By Pat Flynn on


I’m excited to announce that my Getting Started with Smart Passive Income page is now live!

A month ago, I wrote about how there seems to be a missing element on most blogs online, including my own: a proper starting point, both for brand new visitors and people who just want to get the most important information – all in one spot. I finally got around to completing this task, and I’m really happy with the results.

Since this particular page may become the first page that people use to really get to know me and the SPI brand online, I decided to go the extra mile with it. I shot a couple of new videos and spent a lot of time making sure it keeps readers engaged and takes them through a journey, rather than just piling a ton of random information on them.

As with anything, I’m sure there is room for improvement, but so far the reaction (especially to the welcome video) has been nothing but positive.

There are a couple of things I still need to do with this page:

First, I’ll need to test where the best place on the homepage is to link to the getting started page. I actually have Mike, my programmer, working on one iteration right now which should be live on the homepage within 24 hours. I’ll be split testing this against other placements to eventually find the optimal spot. I’ll keep you updated, for sure.

Secondly, I’d like to integrate Facebook Comments on this particular page so people can leave comments and ask questions while at the same time spreading the word about the getting started page on Facebook almost automatically. Here’s a link on Facebook that shares what this looks like and how it works.

I’ve seen a few sites integrate this already and it’s looks pretty slick. It could possibly encourage more comments since people are used to typing stuff in Facebook, and because a comment is posted on the commenter’s wall on Facebook, word about the page could spread like wildfire.

To be honest, I spent about 2 hours this morning trying to figure it out, to no avail. There are even wordpress plugins available to help with integration, and they were’t working either. I guess Mike will have a new task on his list of things to do.

Other than that, the page is ready and I invite you to check it out. Please start by watching the one-minute welcome video, which utilizes the new green screen setup I have in my home office.

I’d love to hear what you think! Just let me know in the comment section below. Thanks, and all the best to you!
