Serious Bloggers Only is Live! (Grab Your Free Membership)

Drumroll, please.

Today, we’re announcing a new community built specifically for serious bloggers – people who aren’t just tinkering around with blogging for a hobby, but expect to get actual results from it. Maybe you want to become a full-time writer or get a book deal or land a high-paying client that does everything you say.

Serious Bloggers Only will teach you how. Inside, you’ll learn everything you need to know about getting traffic, improving your writing, and even monetizing your blog.

Because I’ll be teaching you.

Over the past five years, the blogs I’ve helped build have generated over 200 million page views and over $50 million in revenue. I’m taking all that experience and condensing it into a series of cheat sheets and checklists that’ll enable you to take the web by storm.

And I’m doing it for a shockingly cheap price. To reach critical mass, we’re giving a free month of membership to the first 1,000 people who join.

Click here to get the details.

The bad news?

Just over the past few days, 413 “early birds” have already snuck inside. There are only 587 spots left, and today, I’m sending this announcement out to over 40,000 people.

So, get in while you can. :-)

Fair warning: right now, the whole site is still a little plain. We’re in the process of sprucing up the design and adding new content, so you’ll see lots of changes over the next few weeks.

Once we reach critical mass, we’re also thinking about starting a forum, holding some live events, and maybe even doing a post of the week that’ll be featured here on Boost Blog Traffic. Exciting stuff. :-)

For right now though, you’ll have access to The Six-Figure Roadmap – an 8,000 word report about how to take your blog from zero to six figures. We also have a list of recommended books and an execution checklist outlining everything you need to do. We’ll be adding more over the next few days, but it’s plenty to keep you busy for now.

So, head on over and take a look. We’ll see you inside.

9 Irresistible Incentives That’ll Grow Your Email List Like Crazy

9 Irresistible Incentives That’ll Grow Your Email List Like Crazy

Subscriber numbers.

Frustrating, aren’t they?

Everyone tells you how important building a list is, but yours is so tiny it would fit on the back of your hand.

And on the other side of the fence, popular bloggers can’t wait to brag about how many people are on their email lists.

“Join over 5,000 readers by subscribing today.”

“Join more than 10,000 people who’ve already signed up.”

“100,000 subscribers and counting!”

But how exactly do they do it?

And why are people so eager to sign up for their lists and apparently so reluctant to sign up for yours?

13 Authority Hacks That Give You Instant Expert Status Online

13 Authority Hacks That Give You Instant Expert Status Online

He falls to one knee, gripping his chest. Like a brush fire, the news spreads through the crowd, causing confusion and fear.

Then three words are spoken – and panic is replaced by calm.

“I’m a doctor.”

The crowd parts to give the obvious expert space to work, ready and willing to follow instructions from the one person in the room who seems to know what to do.

This is the power of authority. It attracts attention, communicates credibility, and inspires action.

And as a blogger, you need it now more than ever.

You’re not trying to get attention in a room of 100; you’re clawing for attention in a room of 10,000,000. Every day, people are bombarded with dozens of new emails, hundreds of social media updates, countless videos and an endless stream of podcasts to consume.

It’s a noisy world. Without authority, your voice is a whisper, almost impossible to hear over everyone else. But as a recognized expert, you don’t have to shout, because people come to you. They seek you out, join your world, and consume everything you have to offer.

It’s good to have authority.

Yet how do you get it? How do you go from being just another blogger to becoming one of the obvious authorities?

Though it might seem like a mystery, it’s actually a science. If you know the right shortcuts, you can set off a psychological chain reaction that positions you as the respected source in your field.

Blogger Outreach: How to Get Influencers to Promote Your Content for Free

Blogger Outreach: How to Get Influencers to Promote Your Content for Free

Note from Jon: Let me introduce this post by saying something shocking: if you want a chance in hell of being noticed online, you need to spend as much time promoting your post as you do writing it. Maybe more. The question is… how? The answer: read this guide from one of the hottest up and comers online right now, Brian Dean.

Ever notice how some blogs seem to arrive out of nowhere?

A few months earlier, you’d never even heard of the blog.

Then suddenly it’s plastered over half the Twitter and Facebook feeds in your niche.

And almost overnight, the person behind the blog is the go-to expert in the field.

Annoying, isn’t it?

After all, your content is just as good as theirs (if not better). You know just as much about your topic as they do (if not more). And you work just as hard (if not harder) promoting your work on social media.

So what’s their secret?

How do they skyrocket their blog’s traffic and subscriber numbers … while you’re still struggling to move the needle?

Is it their content?

(That’s important, but frankly not enough to guarantee success.)

Is it their eye-catching design?

(Good design helps, but it won’t automatically get you to the top.)

Did they just get lucky?

(With 164 million blogs online, they’d have better odds of winning the lottery.)

Believe it or not, most bloggers who make a name for themselves use a strategy that’s as old school as Netscape and 56k modems.

And because it may not initially seem as exciting as a new traffic technique or the latest social media network, most bloggers overlook this time-tested approach, even though it often leads to explosive blog growth.

But let’s reveal exactly how you can use this untapped strategy to grow your blog quicker than you ever thought possible.
