My original plan of filming at the Traffic and Conversion Summit didn’t really pan out as I was expected. So I grabbed my buddy Derek of Copyhour fame, headed down to the beach and talked a bit about the difference between a lifestyle business and a startup. I realized after the fact this was pretty similar to vlog #4, but you know…better. So we’ll just roll with it. Digging these videos? Check out more on the Location 180 vlog.

Vlog 9: How to Create a Niche Site (2016 Edition)

One of my most popular posts ever on this site was called How to Create a Niche Site that Brings in $500 a Month. It’s had thousands of views over the last couple years, and for the most part, it’s still just as relevant now as it was back then. And even though I’m a huge advocate of the basic three step process for starting a business: Build the relevant skills Freelance one skill to build income and confidence Then build the sexy passive income business I still get a ton of people wanting to know how to start an affiliate niche site. So I figured I’d shoot a video that goes over the exact process for how to do it.

10 Reasons Why I Moved Location Rebel Over to Rainmaker

Over the years, websites can go stale. Take Location 180 for example. This site has looked pretty much exactly the same way for the last 4 years. At the time I launched the new design, it had a sweet custom Thesis setup and looked great. However now you can get a $50 dollar theme for some place like Theme Forest which will look much better and have way more functionality. There comes a time with every site, business, and brand when you need to switch things up. And I’ve reached that point. So while this site is in certain need of a revamp, that will be phase #2. Phase #1 is updating our flagship product and community, Location Rebel. In

Vlog #8: Pirate Caddies in Orlando, Florida

This week I’m down in Orlando, Florida for the annual PGA show. Over the weekend we drove all over the state playing cool golf courses and checking out Miami, which is a city I’ve never been to before. I shot some sweet footage of the trip, but when I went to edit it, I realized that the windstopper I’d been using to trying and help the sound – essentially just made it 10 times worse. To the point where all of our shots were unusable. So the other day, my friend Patrick and I were walking down the street trying to figure out what to do for the evening – when we stumbled upon Pirates Coves mini golf. And well,

Vlog 6: Shangri-La Maldives Location 180 Digs

A few years back I did a series of videos called “Location 180 Digs”. It was essentially my ripoff of MTV Cribs to show off some of the cool places I was staying while traveling. They’re still some of my favorite videos I’ve done, so I decided to resurrect the series for the new vlog. In November we took or honeymoon to the Shangri-La Villingili Resort in the Maldives. To say it was nice would be the understatement of the century. In today’s post you get a tour of our Water Villa. Digging it? (Ha get it, Digging, Digs…nevermind).

ConvertKit Review 2016: Why I Switched from Aweber to ConvertKit

Well, I finally did it. I switched my email provider from Aweber to ConvertKit. I’ve been on Aweber for over 5 years – pretty much ever since I started blogging. And while it’s been good to me up until this point, I don’t feel like it’s evolving with the times very well. I feel like 2016 is going to be the year of marketing automation. What do I mean by that? Well for the first time ever, advanced marketing tools that used to only be available in very high end (and expensive) email providers, are now becoming much more affordable. This along with the fact that people’s attention spans are at an all time low, and it’s harder than ever
