”Imagine if you had Your Own GI Joe Fan Club”

Ever sent a letter or email to be a part of a fan club? Membership sites are powerful revenue generators that not only build your brand, extend your community but also create growth and income.

”Get them the contact they need”

What if you drove leads to another site? Can you use your site to drive leads to products and services that others need and get paid for it? We’ll go over solid examples of sites that sell services, and then direct readers to service providers for stuff we don’t do.

3:00 p.m.

“Joint Ventures, not elbow joints”

Let’s talk about the mechanics of finding, securing and executing a joint venture. Whether for a telesummit, special webinar or product launch, joint ventures create millions.

We’re excited to be working with the LeadPages team in Minneapolis this year. LeadPages is a software company that operates a bit like Apple. Both companies believe that technology should be fun to look at, easy to use and make your life better.

Per their about page. . .”We’re a dynamic software company that creates simple, beautiful software and web apps that allow businesses to grow large and devoted audiences. We believe compelling online marketing doesn’t need to be time consuming and tedious.” Beautiful, isn’t it? We can’t wait to become better acquainted with them . . and to introduce them to you. blogging concentrated-blackblack

Dan and Rachel, with Blogging Concentrated, believe bloggers make change in the world. We help companies get their products into the hands of consumers. We make people laugh. We make them cry. We bring awareness to causes and make people smarter.

We entertain. We challenge. We bring people together.

Our only goal is to help you retire, help you pay back your family for all the time they sacrifice while you blog, to help make tomorrow easier than today.

Our goal is to help you define success so you can see it.

We want to help you become the CEO, act like the CEO, think like the CEO and make money like a CEO.
