Regular Blog readers know that I’ve been posting like a mad-man all week long about BlogTheMedia.com. Now that the free preview week is closing down, you can expect the posts to calm down. I did want to put together one definitive post about the product, how to access it, etc.
Q: What is BlogTheMedia.com?
A: This has been a long-time coming but BlogTheMedia.com is my definitive course on Blogging. The tool is so powerful, the industry so rich with potential and the understanding of it so limited that I had to put this together. BlogTheMedia.com represents EVERYTHING I know and am doing about Blogs and Blogging. It contains videos, audios, teleseminars, worksheets and more. This is a comprehensive program.
Q: Who is it for?
A: This is for anyone who wants to Blog for profit (either directly, or using the Blog to generate profit in other areas of their businesses). Everything is taught and nothing is left to the imagination. From videos about setting up Blogs to hours of training about best practices to ideas about content creation, everything you need to Blog for profit, or Blog the Media is contained in this course.
Q: What kind of content does it contain?
