🚀 Build Profitable Directories!

Free Course. Get the Authority Advantage....🚀 & LAUNCH a profitable online agency with the web directory model.

Trying to build a web directory and having a hard time tracking down all of the advice, audios, videos and recommendations i’ve written here?  So am I!  To that end, I’m putting all of my videos, audios and visualizations in one spot – as a “membership” style resource you can access anytime, for free.

I’ll organize these much better as time allows – (this isn’t my priority time wise these days – but I do want to offer all of this up in one central spot – for my sanity…and for yours) – and you can ask questions, etc – as you need, from within the course interface.  (if there is demand – 100 + people or so – I’ll add a private interactive community where folks can interact with each other, share ideas, etc – all around the directory marketing model.  I have this set up for premium clients – but if enough people want it – i’ll do it for free folks, too)

What this is:  A growing collection of content and resources for directory site marketers, authority site owners, brand builders, online agencies, and aspiring online entrepreneurs who want to build BUZZ for your blog, brand, books, business and bank account….using the hyper profitable “authority” site marketing model.  The authority site marketing model (in my parlance) refers to the following types of sites:

  1. A web directory (hyper local,  niche based or special interest)
  2. Curated content community (largely clipped, snipped, culled and collected content – a travel or destination based newsletter, for example – or a trip based recommendation site based on aggregated content)
  3. Video portals (niche based or otherwise)
  4. Curated NEWSLETTER style sites (very easy to launch, a lot of fun and WAY underrated and underutilized by folks who want to stress test a niche or idea.  ProductHunt, for example – started as a curated newsletter, and there are many examples of this model that work wonderfully well and can evolve into something very lucrative as well)
  5. Marketplace style sites (multi vendor stores in the Etsy model)
  6. SOCIAL and mobile based communities oriented around PASSION, purpose and “network effects”
  7. Classifieds/Job boards/etc (not my preference, but certainly can fall into the authority site purview)
  8. COURSE communities.  (a collection of content and courses – multi author – being sold in a central spot to the public who shares an interest or passion for the niche or topic)
If you have questions about any of the content – get in touch!  My passion is helping enlightened entrepreneurs do what they LOVE for a living…and make a difference in the world.And if you have specific questions you’d like answered, feel free to ask them and I’ll record videos, audios and info based on what folks most want to know.

I am an author, artist and entrepreneur. My 2 passions are writing about, and teaching Marketing and Meditation. I like to think I’m a lot like Eckhart Tolle, if only he was taller, and a much better tennis player. (it turns out in person, he’s super short, has a terrible backhand and wears this weird scottish hat thingy that makes it really difficult to concentrate while serving) Plus he refuses to keep score and says ” it’s always NOW” when you ask who is up. Enough about me. We barely know each other. Stop staring. You’re making me nervous.
