This is a touchy post… and if think I am talking about you – well, I probably am. When I say block I mean block. While my profile, posts, photos, and other stuff is wide open to the public – when blocked people are logged in they can’t see anything. Of course they could log out of Facebook and look but logged in they can’t. So why would I? Well the honest truth is they don’t know me.
This is the backstory to one of the most epic and iconic pictures in internet marketing. When I cashed this check it was accompanied by a $350 unemployment check. My story isn’t rags to riches but I was 50k in credit card debt, 420 lbs, smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a day and was on unemployment. Then over night started cranking in money with Google Adsense.
I was first introduced into the short-term loan industry about 4 years ago when I was hired as a consultant to a company out of Las Vegas. I improved their conversion by 17%. Yes, I’m good like that. For that I got to know the interworks of the internals. Since they were the advertiser (product owner), I got to know a lot about the affiliate industry for short-term loans.
You got everything cooking in your business but you need one component or more. Maybe you need an agency to take on your media buying. Maybe you need an agency to take on your SEO. Maybe you need an agency to handle your PR. You are busy doing what you do best and bringing in one of these is a magic bullet… or is it..
I already talked about us being on the show before but I wanted to show the direct effect that a bunch of marketers have on a TV Show. In 2012 Fast Company had a contest which they got a LOT of celebrities on board to see who was the most influential person on the internet. People like Britany Spears, Shaquille O’neal, Ashton Kutcher, etc etc.
Keep an eye out for my next post… How we saved a dying show. The show had been falling in the ratings until we were on it and almost set an all time record for viewership and the episode finished 3rd in all of cable TV. More on that in another post. A while back a nice girl named Tracey used the contact form through my blog and said she saw my pictures and read my blog and wan ...

18 months ago I launched http://blogninja.com with the concept of a free incentivized training program to get people started learning how to make a blog and the key pillars of monetizing it. When I first launched it on my list, it did awesome. Then I had friends like John Chow, Zac Johnson, and others send it to their lists and, of course, it did awesome. Their audience was familiar with me.
Tweet Pin It “If you can’t spot the sucker in your first half hour at the table, then you are the sucker.” This is a great quote. Not sure who originally said it, but I am saying it now so at least two people have said it ;). Anyway. In the publisher space there is a term called “breakage.” Breakage is the publisher’s commission that are not properly tracked.
Tweet Pin It Since I am kind of a big deal on the internet, I get a lot of Facebook requests for friendship. When I first started using it I accepted everyone as a friend and grew pretty quick to the 5,000 limit. Only issue was Facebook was in its infancy still and now people that I actually -knew knew were coming in but I was at the cap for friends.

Tweet Pin It You can officially stop worrying about a mid-life crisis, because before you even get there you’re going to have to navigate the quarter life crisis. It’s hardly a surprise when you consider what we were led to expect; we’ve watched the older generation go to college and take their degrees into a well-paid job, meanwhile we just don’t have the same opportunities.
