Nice to see you jump right in, Constance! A big welcome to the Networking Clubs.
I’m hoping Kristi Hines, our expert Blogging Club Leader, takes notice of your question. She is always a font of useful information and links.
As I said in my email, for affiliate marketing I like to follow PotPieGirl Jennifer Ledbetter and Travis Sago, two very down to earth, folksy, and very smart marketers with an eye to providing tremendous value to their readers.
On the high end of the scale, I also like to follow Mike Koenigs and Brandon Bruchard… both overdeliver value on just about everything… with Mike focusing on high-end cross-channel marketing and Brandon helping everyone produce products based on their expertise.
To me, trending may be fun to watch, but timeless advice from timeless leaders is sure to help now and later. The four I mentioned are in it for the long haul.
I recently, however, ran across a gamechanging (for me) inexpensive seminar by John S. Rhodes called Juggernaut Expert. I don’t have a clue what that means, lol, but his talk completely changed the focus of what I do everyday, and as a result, I’m 100 times more productive and actually have profitable work product at the end of my day each day to show for it. I bought it through Chris Munch on MunchWeb, I think, for less than $10.00… perhaps it was a WSO from WarriorPlus. Take copious notes. You’ll need them to refer back to later.
Since then, I have read anything Chris Munch recommends… and every bit of it has been extremely helpful. I watched closely how he structured all his offers, his free reports, etc., and his methods are so professionally and full of merit… well, like I said… I go read or study everything he recommends. I especially liked his 7 part series named something like “What I Would Do If I Had to Start Over” or something like that. Very solid advice, unlike any I’d read before.
At this point, I’m not impressed by the WOW factors, the shiny objects that distract my attention or waste my time. I’m focusing only on those things that can help my business move forward the fastest and most effectively.
Just some of my thoughts… hope they help.
