Over the last few years, I have spent tens of thousands of dollars testing out different services and products to help my business grow. A lot of those solutions were junk and cost me time and money. So I created this section of the site for you so that you don’t have to waste any of that time or money on something that doesn’t work well. Enjoy!

  1. I love your site. It is so informative. Although I’m not a newbie, I’ve been playing around with websites for 6 years with no success. However, most of it has been intentional because I wanted to learn as much as I could before I jumped in.

    After perusing your site, I’m ready now…… because everything you have mentioned about keywords, social media, autoresponders is so absolutely true. It’s so refreshing to hear someone else with authority claim the same thoughts that I have gathered over the past 6 years.

    Do you use an auto-scheduler, like NextScripts, Pulblicize, Hootsuite or Buffer? If none of these who do you recommend? Do you rely solely on organic search engine traffic? Or, do you do any social media outreach? Merry Christmas to you and your family! Thank you.

    P.S. The site mentioned below has been around since 2011, just haven’t pushed it.

    1. Hi Lori,

      We don’t use an auto-scheduler. But then again we do very little on social media except for YouTube. And when we write a blog post or upload a youtube video, we just schedule them then so that they publish at our regular time. I think that also answers your question about social media outreach. We just find that it’s easy to waste hours on social media outreach for very little benefit to your site. If you have a limited schedule, then it’s better to use your time to create awesome content until you have a big audience. At that point, you can connect with them just through youtube comments if you’re using that medium.

  2. If I do a bunch of niche sites and build them up – do they have to have their own hosting account, or do you use addon domains (each having its own domain name)? Does google penalize or not rate addon domains? I’ve heard addon domains are bad – Could you lead me in the right direction (already have hosting but don’t want to buy a bunch of accounts). Thanks for ANY help.

    1. We just use one hosting account on Bluehost and have multiple add-on domains. If you’re using a hosting plan that allows for multiple domains on one account, you’re fine to just have them be add-ons.

      1. I have many websites on a single server, meaning they all have the same IP address, however they have different domain names. Actually, one of them uses a sub-domain name from my main company website and Google sees both a completely separate websites as it should. So if the domain name you’re using makes sense for multiple sub-domains, you can create multiple websites, all on the same server, and it will work just fine.

  3. At what point should someone consider starting a business? Did you use someplace like LegalZoom for the LLC?

    1. Just a thought… START!
      you can figure out all that other stuff as you grow.
      We all learn as we grow and definitely GO…..
      Most businesses start off small out here…
      Experiment, Try, Do Something and discover any level of success and Then Scale up that success…
      There is a good chance you will try many things before you hit on the niche that works for you…
      So here comes that advice from the first line in this string of words…
      START!

  4. I wish to get started with this new chapter in my life. I don’t know anything about starting up a business or anything like that. However, I am very teachable, and is willing to learn. Thank you very much for your time.

  5. Love your site Dude.
    Very well done.

    Some future time, we should chat. Once you know a bit about me, you might want to do some Interview shows together.

    Could be fun.

    Until again.

    Have a great Thanksgiving with your family Bro’

    PS love your verification app – too awesome!
