    Great Interview John.

    I know I should have a blog and I have tried setting one up but I always find myself struggling for something to say that’s actually of value.

    I’ve always told myself that if I haven’t got something of value to say then don’t say it.

    I think I need to address that!

    What an AMAZING interview guys, I took some notes while listening to it but I’m just going to share a few tips otherwise I would end up writing a complete blog post here.

    About separating personality from the niche on the blog, absolutely NOT.

    I’ve found that whenever I write about personal topics everything gets a bigger response: open rates, CTR, social shares, comments so what I do now, is I try to be personal but I also “sprinkle” marketing bits throughout the article.

    I don’t use any blogging editors either but I know that Ultimate TinyMCE is great for that, I used it in the beginning but now I just do whatever I can with HTML and shortcodes.

    The difference between Dan’s Bloggers Roadmap and other blogging products it’s DAN, simple as that.

    Somebody asked a very interesting question about personal posts, calls to action and selling frequency.

    Like I said above, a personal bit here and there will never hurt your blog, in fact, it will resonate with part of your audience and those people will remain with you as long as you keep being yourself (this is exactly why it’s so important to be yourself at all times and don’t fake anything).

    I don’t know where I read (or heard) this but you should NEVER write a post without a call to action.

    A call to action doesn’t necessarily means “BUY THIS”, it can be tweet this, share this, comment on this article, it can be anything but never forget to INCLUDE one on every post.

    About the selling frequency I used to do a LOT of reviews before and always tried to monetize with links here and there, banners, etc. I have found that when people actually started buying through my links was the exact moment when I stopped selling to them.

    If you write a review, you don’t need to put 20 affiliate links throughout the article, you just need to focus on the review’s quality and put ONE link in the end, that’s it.

    Blog challenges are AMAZING to do. It keeps you accountable and you inspire others to do the same (if you succeed). Even if you help ONE person through this, they keep forever grateful to you.

    And last but not least, this interview could EASILY be an iTunes podcast.

    With the statistics that some big bloggers get (a few million downloads) this is a massive untapped source of targetted traffic.

    All you need to do is add an intro and outro (can be set inside the “Audio Player” plugin for wordpress and you don’t even need to embedd the intro or outro with the main audio).

    So that’s all!

    Thanks for sharing the interview Dan and John, this is a PERFECT example of having amazing, free and valuable pillar content in our blogs.

    Hi John & Dan,

    Great interview mate, really enjoyed it. I didn’t expect my question to be mentioned. It was a cheeky question,I couldn’t think of one and I wanted to ask one. I know Dan’s products would be top notch. Having researched the book for all that time he will be an expert on it.

    I haven’t bought the product but I will do that in the near future.I’ve cooked a Thai curry and not too bad it was either. Thanks again guys, top banana as usual.

    Hi John,

    I have just shared the link to this interview on FB, and also posted it to a group I am part of, since I believe that there is a lot to learn from it on how to make a blog work for a business. It is not only the content that is brilliant, bit the way the interview is being conducted. It flows effortlessly and naturally, and when I need an example of a great interview, I will refer people to it,

    Kind wishes,

    Thanks for offering this interview John. I also want to say that I am almost done with your “one month mentor” coaching program and it has helped me so much. I think I have ADD because everything online has been pulling in all sorts of places and I never can complete anything.
    But I started going through your coaching steps and it keeps me on track. Now I have a blog up and I just uploaded my first product on ClickBank.
    I am so glad that I found your blog.
    Take care,

    Hi John,

    I have listened to some of the audio recording and will return to listen to the rest when I get more time.

    When I downloaded it I noticed that the recording lasts 55 minutes. As I didn’t have much time to listen on this occasion, it would have helped me to have some sort of contents on the blog post above telling me the different topics and questions Dan was talking about and answering with a time-stamp.

    For example: 27min 30secs – How do you keep visitors engaged with your blog for the long term?

    Is there a reason you don’t include this sort of info? Does anyone else think it would help?
