It’s time for another member’s spotlight where I feature one of my members who is “bringing it”. Someone who is taking action on the principles and methods I teach – and changing the world.
This month it’s David Garland. He has his own online show called The Rise to the Top.
He monetizes the site through a combination of affiliate programs, sponsorships and his own product (David created a product called Create Awesome Interviews, based on the teachings from my 1K Per Day Formula).
David has found success because he has 3 things going for him in spades…
I don’t think David sleeps.
He’s always marketing and connecting with future guests. David’s preferred choice of relationship building seems to be Facebook.
And you’ll see whether it’s on his blog or his Facebook page – David ALWAYS responds to comments.
So many people in the “business education” world are as dry as toast.
But David oozes charisma. The guy is funny and he is different.
He makes all of the interviews relaxed – and he comes off as very likable. You can just tell he is just being himself and that’s why it works so well.
David is also a big believer in building a solid brand.
His logo. His colors. His high-quality graphics. Even his message.
It’s all top-notch and carried out consistently throughout his site. And the extra effort show and stands out from the pack.
David’s formula is simple.
He found a niche market, he is passionate to the core about his topic, he truly cares about his customers, he pays attention to graphics, he puts out good stuff and he works hard.
He doesn’t use tricks or push-button software. He doesn’t hop from “niche to niche”.
David is building relationships and trust.
And if he can find success and build a platform from scratch in an ultra-crowded – what is your excuse?
