A niche that I know a lot about. A niche that I honestly love and have a true passion for.
And a niche that I can truly make a huge impact and a difference on.
I’m going to Start a Blog that Matters
See here’s the thing. All these “Top Gurus” tell you that the best way to get into this Internet Marketing thing of ours is to start with something you know, something that you’re good at, and something that you have a passion for.
Ok, that’s all fine and dandy, but what about them? What about the “Guru”?
Are they doing what they truly love and have a true passion for?
I highly doubt it!
Yes …they have a successful blog teaching people how to blog and make money online, and they may even love what they do. But I’m willing to bet that when they first started, this wasn’t what they truly loved, let alone had a passion for.
This is something that they had to go through a hard ass learning curve and something they grew to love.
Now I’m not trying to point any fingers or anything like that because I’m guilty of this as well.
This is why today …
I’m going to put my money where my mouth is.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love what I do and I love teaching and sharing my experiences with you. But I can not stand here and honestly say that this thing of ours is my true passion, cause it’s not.
What I am doing now and all the things that I know is something that took years to learn. It’s something that I grew to love and grew a passion for. But if I had to do it all over again, knowing what I know now, I would get into the niche I am about to reveal …
I’m going to get into the DIY Niche
This is a niche that I know like the back of my hand. It’s something I’m good at and that I’ve loved since as far as I can remember. A true passion of mine.
But not just any DIY niche. Hell na! The do it yourself niche is huge.
You got DIY stuff in:
- Arts and Craft
- Home Decor
- Home Remodeling
- Home Renovating
- and a ton of other stuff
The DIY stuff that I’m talking about and that I’m getting into is the simple do it yourself type stuff. Projects that you can do in a day or two, or even a weekend. And that’s what my new blog is going to be about.
Simple Weekend Projects
I’m what you call a “Do it Yourselfer”. A handyman. I like to do my own things around the house. Small little projects that I can handle and do myself.
Installing Base Boards…
Installing floor tiles…
Installing wood floors…
Installing kitchen cabinets…
Building my own Poker Table…
Building my own Home Theater…
I pretty much do just about everything around the house. And guess what? I absolutely love it. When my family and friends need help with a diy project, I do it FREE of charge because I love it that much.
And that’s why I’m going to start a blog on something that I know, love, and have a true passion for. Just like the Guru’s tell you to do ;-)
I’m going to use Corbett Barr’s Principles
I recently purchased Corbett Barr’s course, How to Start a Blog that Matters. Yes, I actually bought it. It’s not a comp. In fact, Corbett doesn’t even know I’m doing this. So before you get all crazy and start thinking stuff, I just want you to know.
Anyway …In this course I learned a ton of stuff, I mean just when I thought I knew it all, here comes something else.
Now this isn’t just any old course like you see out there. Corbett doesn’t teach you how to spin articles and submit them to a gazillion directories. He doesn’t even teach you how to get a shit ton of worthless backlinks to your blog.
This course is more than that.
This course is about Building a Thriving Audience
The course actually teaches you how to start and build a blog that truly matters. A blog that people will find useful and will actually help them.
This is what my main focus for this year is. Not only for the Income Press blog, but with the new diy niche I’m building.
So here’s the deal …
I’m going to be sharing every step of the way with you. From setting up the blog, to making the videos, the topics I’ll be publishing, everything.
Now even though I’ll be using Corbett’s principles to build this blog huge, I’m also going to put my own twist on it. I’m going to use what I like to call …
My Unfair Advantage
I’ve been doing this thing of ours for a quite a bit now and I know a lot more than those other guys in that niche. In fact, YOU and I know about 95% more than those other guys out there.
I don’t care what niche you’re in or how long you’ve been doing this. The simple fact that you’re on this blog right now, reading and learning from me shows that you know more than they do.
What are some of my unfair advantages?
Well, for one, I’m a video guy. So I can showcase in detail how to do things better than my competition.
In the niche I’m in, when you search for something as simple as how to fix a door knob hole, you get a ton of crappy tutorials. Most of them in hard to follow text.
So here I’ll come to save the day and make it easy for them with a simple quick video and simplify it. Sort of like what I do here with my SQT videos.
Another will be on how I layout my blog. Right now if you go to some of the top DIY blogs, they are a complete mess. Crazy adds everywhere and crazy hoops and loops to jump through just to get one simple question answered.
Here’s a chance to follow me side by side
I just recently created a private group on facebook and on skype for those that want to do this along with me.
Now the reason I made it private is because I don’t want just anyone outside the inner circle to see what we’re doing on a daily basis.
You see, in this private group we’ll be helping each other out in our journey to building a blog that matters and a blog that’s profitable.
Each of us have something of value to provide to our private group.
Here’s My Blatant Bribe to You
For anyone who purchases Corbett Barr’s How to Start a Blog that Matters course through my affiliate link, I will give you the following…
- Bribe #1: Free Access to my Private Facebook Group
- Bribe #2: Free Access to my Private Skype Group (this is limited to the first 20 people only because you actually get to talk to me live on skype call)
- Bribe #3: A Free copy of my new inPress Blog Theme
- Bonus Bribe: If the top 3 bribes isn’t enough to get your juices flowing, I know this one will: You’ll get 6 Month’s Free Access to the upcoming new Income Press Plus Club (A new Private Membership Club Launching – TBA)
About the Private Groups
Since this is about starting and building a blog that matters, and it’s going to be based on Corbett Barr’s principles from the course, it’s important that we all be on the same page.
So to qualify and get accepted into our private group, you yourself must be a member of Corbett Barr’s, How to Start a Blog that Matters.
Go here now and get your copy of the course through my affiliate link. Then email me personally at joeyk[at]incomepress.com with the subject line “Here’s what Matters” and forward me your purchase receipt. I will then send you the details to enter our private group.
What’s the difference between the private group and what I share here on the blog?
The difference is that I will not be publishing everyday or week just to update on just one thing that I did. It may take a month or two before I post anything here about this case study.
On our private group I will be posting weekly, daily, and even multiple times a day on any update or whatever I got.
We’ll have other members there to help us if we need it. And you can ask me anything on any giving day.
And for the members and ONLY members, you will have direct access to me personally via skype. This means we can have an actual live call right on Skype.
So go here now and get Corbett’s course on How to Start a Blog that Matters so we can get started on this together.
So What’s Next?
As I said earlier, I’m working on writing and recording videos for the “My Unfair Advantage” post. I’m also going to do a Webinar on this topic and on my new diy niche.
So if you got any questions, feedback, or whatever you want me to cover on that Webinar, just post them in the comments below.
Let’s do this together ;-)
