Last week, I created quite a stir with my article on what Facebook was doing with it’s Pages service
I wrote the article as a sort of therapy for myself, reminding me of how important it is to “own the racecourse ” (My friend, James Schramko’s favourite phrase)
On Friday, I had a quick trip from Melbourne to San Diego to speak at the SEO brainstrust conference.
Asking me to keynote this conference was a bit like the Incredible Hulk opening up for the Russian ballet!
I opened up the conference with the great Shakespeare quote, “I come not to praise SEO, I come to bury it.”
For the first half of my talk, I was really quite full doom and gloom, I’m sure the attendees were not quite sure what they were in for!
The thing I wanted to emphasise to them the most, and I want to emphasise to you in this email is this…
“If you are not in the top 20 influencers in your market, you’re stuffed!”
This may seem harsh, but it’s true.
The good news is, there is a step-by-step approach to owning the racecourse and becoming an influencer in your market using a blog as the foundation.
I was all set to create a course on the topic, when long time collegue of mine Yaro Starak let me know he had created a course.
I know Yaro’s work, and have followed him over the years. He has turned his blog into a full-time living.
He is absolutely an influencer in his market.
Become A Blogger is a completely up to date course, giving you a step by step guide on how to setup and become an influencer in your market by blogging.
I’m in the process of firing up my own blog after Facebook reminded me to build a tribe on my platform not theirs!!
The facts are simple.
You need to be a market influencer.
The most important weapon in your arsenal of becoming influencer is your own blog.
