The Essential Business Plan Template For Bloggers
Although I was quite discouraged as I wanted this to be a VIDEO interview, Corbett is so easy to interview that I am sure you are going to love it. Besides, it will give me the opportunity in the future for us to take us on a behind the scenes video tour over at Fizzle.co (which I am currently a member). There is a good mix of beginners and experienced affiliate marketers over at Fizzle that are always willing to help each other out. Combined with monthly tasks and goals, it is a great private membership group that you are not going to spend a fortune to be part of. Make sure to check that out as well.
I have been creating income streams online for a long time now, so I have built up numrous income streams over the years. Some bring in only a few hundred a month while others bring in thousands. In this episode I talk about one of my largest income streams right now
My Income Streams
I started a blog about 5 years ago where I blog about industry news and topics related to real estate appraisers. The blog is located at Appraiserincome.com and this is one of my best ones right now. This is also one of the first blogs where I really started from scratch and I really took my time to build it out. I did not know which direction I was going to take it in the beginning and of course I started off with hard selling. Eventually I decided to work my personality in to the blog and focused on delivering good content. The change really increased the sales on my blog and it has become a huge success, especially over the past couple of years.
If you are an expert in an area or have a lot of knowledge about a certain topic, there is almost always a way to montetize it. You can offer affiliate programs or create a directory of services, products and providers to make it easy to locate the information in your area of expertise.
That is essentially what I did with AppraiserIncome.com and it has provided a great income over the past 3-4 years. Although it is no longer my greatest income stream, it did lead me in the direction to produce my largest income stream yet! I will be providing more on that ‘new business’ later.
I was finally able to wrangle Gideon Shalwick down and talk to him about his Rapid Video Blogging system and the free 92 page report he is giving away for free. He has inspired me for years and one of the main reasons I decided to get in to video blogging instead of the more tradition text only blogging format.
Originally I wanted to do a video interview with him, but since he is practically on the other side of the world, Australia, we decided not to put up with pausing video and go for an audio interview instead. To make things a little more exciting, I decided to use some talking Avatars to spice the video up. They look kinda creepy, but I was cracking up when I got it finished that I had to share it with you. Please let me know what you think by leaving comments below!
Gideon started his quest with earning money online 5 years ago and has enjoyed a very successful career while also becoming one of the most influential bloggers and is also a well known video marketing expert. Prior to his success, multiple online courses and hundreds of online videos, he was working the 9-5 and making other people money. One day he decided he needed some big changes in his life and moved to Austalia from New Zealand with his wife to start a new life an business. He wasn’t sure where to start, but eventually landed on something he was interested in, but did not know a whole bunch about : video creation and blogging.He has compiled 5 years of his experiences in a FREE (and huge) ebook called : Rapid Video Blogging System

He expands on each of these steps in the interview and explains a case study where he helped a magician friend of his to dominate the market with the keyword “free magic tricks” and bring in a ton of traffic and sales. That was years ago and the website and videos still rank in the top 5 in google. Video is dominating the search engines these days and will definitely give you the competitive edge with any online property. It also helps with local and social search results!
One of the last sections you do not want to miss from the book is the 3 methods to make money with your video domination hub. I really didn’t want to take all of the information out of the book on these, so I will just give you the titles of the Methods, you will have to find out the details on each inside of the free report.
Fast Cash Injection Method
The Competition Crushing Method
The Passive Income Method
One of the best things about the report is that you can find a 2 page checklist that will help you get your videos and video hub created so you can start bringing in the traffic. Since this was my first interview over skype, I was very happy with the interview and very grateful that Gideon agreed to do an interview with an unknown video blogger!

It really isn’t difficult to set up the blog, the problem is that there is so much information out there that it becomes a daunting task for a beginner.

Gideon teamed up with Leslie Samuel to put together a video training program that teaches you how to blog. Many have used it to become successful bloggers. I have even taken the course myself. They are offering a set of 10 videos for free where you get to watch as he sets up a blog from scratch. Anyone can learn how to set up a blog with this step by step tutorials.

I originally came across Gideon and Yaro with their ‘Become a Blogger Course’ which I prominently display throughout my website and have also participated in the course. I signed up a long time ago and loved it. They use the same site building software that I use here and they keep everything very simple.
