How Online Courses Changed My Business

I’ve been teaching online courses for the last three or four years. When I started out, it was because Julien Smith told me that I ought to teach people how to create their own blog topics. That evolved into Blog Topics: The Master Class, and since then, I’ve launched a dozen or so more. Show More Summary

My New Blendtec Designer 725

The folks at Blendtec sent me a Designer 725 super duper high tech smart blender. As a fitness and health guy, it’s a pretty cool thing to own. My parents own a competing brand of blender, and I’ve owned a much less expensive blender that I used to use to make smoothies until it died […] The post My New Blendtec Designer 725 appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

An Ebook on Authority

I was asked by Lee Odden to contribute to an ebook that relates to the upcoming Authority Rainmaker conference. I would’ve said yes anyway, but they added to the story that Henry Rollins was going to be in this same ebook.

Make Media that Serves

I was the keynote speaker at Perry Drake’s UMSL digital marketing event last week. The room was a mix of agency people, business owners, and students.

Has Blogging Changed Much Over the Last 17 Years?

17 years. That’s how long I’ve been blogging (as of the moment I’m writing this post). I started in 1998, before there was blogging software, back when it was called “journaling.” A lot has changed in my life since then (two major relationships,...Show More Summary

Content Will Never Be King

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to sit down with my friends Darren Rowse and Brian Clark. The last time the three of us sat quietly was in 2008 or 2009 when we launched the Third Tribe group (ah, memories). I joked that I wanted to bring that back and we could call it Sixth Tribe.

Content Marketing as a Food Truck: Rethinking Content Marketing In A World of Splintered Attention

How a $200 Chromebook Earned my Company $28,000 in Ten Days

This is the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-111-C670. It’s about the size of a Macbook Air, kinda. It runs the Google Chrome OS, which means it’s pretty much like a browser-only deal. All the apps you use are web-based. And this device helped me make $28,000 in ten days. Show More Summary

What Writing A Great Sales Letter Taught Me About Everything

I can count on one hand the number of times that something I’ve tried to sell has been well-received by the people I serve. You know how some kids are a late bloomer? That’s me with most of the things I sell. People buy them years later sometimes. Show More Summary

GigaOm Reportedly Shutting Down

Unless it’s a prank or a hacked account, writer Mathew Ingram reports that GigaOm, a popular blog launched in 2006, is shutting down, evidently having run out of money and/or the will to keep on pushing. Again, it’s early, so maybe this is a hacked account. If so, I’ll gladly (and with a sigh of […] The post GigaOm Reportedly Shutting Down appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

You Will Never See Us Coming

I was talking with the ever smart Jeff Brown who does the Read to Lead Podcast (one of my favorites), and we were talking about how podcasting is just booming. Jeff runs a Podcaster Academy.

Remember When I Said I Quit Facebook?

A few years back, I quit Facebook. I tried deleting my old profile, but in Facebook, that’s pretty much an act of congress, so I just abandoned it. A year ago-ish, I snuck back on, but decided not to do much in the way of “business” via my Facebook. Along the way, I discovered what […] The post Remember When I Said I Quit Facebook? appeared first on chrisbrogan.com.

Why I Won’t Stop Blogging

I started blogging in 1998, back when they called it journaling. My first site wasn’t really blogging software. It didn’t exist yet. A bunch of my sites have been lost to software companies folding. Then eventually, I landed on blogger.com,...Show More Summary
