Well folks – there you have it. The doors are open and people are in!
Before I start to show you around the members area I want to share with you a thought I had while looking at all the training inside.
In short order, blogging WILL be dead. It’s been dying for a long time – I don’t mean the ‘act’ of blogging, I mean the usefulness of it. With more and more people adopting the Authority blogging formula which is most favored by the search engines… Anyone still just ‘Blogging’ will be left far behind.
Digital Marketer just made the following statement and you only need to take a few minutes to scope out the members area of AuthorityROI and see it is true. They said that ” … most in-depth and cutting-edge systems ever created by the company”
Totally true – imagine that especially when you realize all the fabulous stuff they have put out over the years.
Also did you know that for a limited time they are also giving away $2000 worth of (thats two thousand dollars) propriety, done-for-you Authority Websites? Really – all done for you and by the same people that does Ryan Deiss’s own Authority sites including all the Premium themes and top plugins. I’ll get to more on that on this page.
Inside the members area are 6 Modules each with a mass of training inside the folder. They are supported with video, audio, and pdfs.
Ryan’s training is always easy to comprehend and step-by-step. The larger/more difficult modules are broken into several mini-modules.
The six main sections are
- Gut Check
- Establishing Your Brand
- Building Your Authority Site
- Establishing Your Content Strategy
- Monetizing Your Authority
- Scaling Your Media Empire
And don’t forget there is other stuff too as well as your free (built for you) Authority site.
Just to give you an idea on what each section is all about I’ll break it down a little. This is by no means a FULL REVIEW – simply because I haven’t been through it yet.
There is hours and hours (hundreds of them) of training content and the course was just opened – give me some time!
1. Gut Check
This goes right into the basics, finding a niche that is going to make you some money in the long haul. Blogging is ok if you have a little interest, but if you want to be an Authority and make a real business out of it, it needs to be scrutinized to make sure you can have a long term business.
If by going through the exercises and using the resources you find its a good one then thats great, if not, there are resources to help you pick a new market.
2. Establishing Your Brand
The way in which you ‘shine’ in your market. Learn the things that you can do to stand head and shoulders above your competition.
There are different methods of branding too. You can concentrate on product, personal branding, or corporate branding. Based on the niche and service you want to deliver its good to start the branding process correctly right at the beginning.
3. Building Your Authority Site
This is the building – I know you do get a free site but this will go through how to properly put your Authority site together. Know how it is done right will help you with the next one, and the next…
The ground floor includes the right themes right up to proper SEO for greatest benefits.
Legal stuff like Trademarks and FTC compliance is covered in this module – no one wants to get shut down after putting in all that hard work.
There is way more in this section too, like how to and the why to getting a Google Places listing and using specific types of company advertisement on your Authority site. Much more…
4. Establishing Your Content Strategy
By mapping out what you will be doing or providing ahead of time and creating a schedule for posting and emailing your subscribers you will have a much more effective Authority site. All this is covered in this section.
The strategies that he covers have all been proven to be best practices.
Another important part of acquiring content is getting writers that totally gel with the persona or ambiance you want to project. This section covers how and who and where to get writers.
5. Monetizing Your Authority
This is my favorite part. As much as I do enjoy interacting with people online, this is my business and Ryan has some really great ways to monetize. How best to use your subscribers and your premium spaces is only a part of this section.
6. Scaling Your Media Empire
How many posts should you have done each day? How and where do you find a managing editor and what should they be like? What about contests, and social media?
This section is all about growing and developing your business. Its a HUGE module.
Anyway – the AuthorityROI course is open for a limited number of people. Ryan wants to build a community of Authority Properties and its up to you whether you are one of them or not.
Meet you at the water cooler 🙂
