How I Keep Doubling My Income Every Year

The Proven Formula I Use for Every New Product—Plus a Free Look at How I Do It

When people hear my business has doubled every year for the past three years, they want to know why. I can boil down my answer to just five words: Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula.

Forbes calls Jeff the “$400 million man” because PLF students have made literally hundreds of millions with his strategies and tactics.

I signed up for Jeff’s PLF course about three years ago. It was pricey—and also priceless. Why? Because it revolutionized my marketing and enabled me to put a rocket under my revenues.

The Results of My 30-Day Periscope Experiment

What I Learned and Where We Go from Here

When I first heard about Periscope, Twitter’s new live-streaming video app, I responded the same way I did when I heard about Twitter for the first time. I thought it was stupid.

Who has time for another social media channel, I thought. I have all I can manage with my blog, my podcast, Facebook, Twitter, and (occasionally) Instagram.

But I noticed that people I respect, like Chalene Johnson and Chris Ducker, were going all in—and killing it. Within a few days I had contracted FOMO (“fear of missing out”). I thought it was time to give it a shot.

How Your ‘Why’ Helps You When Your Platform Makes You Wait

Some days, I wish I’d never met Google Analytics. I mean, a couple of clicks shows me everything from my blog’s unique monthly visitors to what post a reader in Oslo is reading right now. It’s amazing! And honestly, it’s depressing.

9 Features Developers Should Jump on Fast to Stay Ahead of the Competition

Right now, I serve up two and a half hours a week with my #DailyMentor show. I’ve been doing it for one week now, and the feedback has been phenomenal.

There are several reasons I think Periscope is an incredible medium. But it’s not perfect, not by a long shot. The more I use it, the more I find significants flaws. At least for me. But I bet my experience is not unique.

I joined Twitter on April 6, 2008. A friend urged me to check it out. He was already using it and loved it. So after some initial eye-rolling, I tried it and fell in love with the medium too.

It wasn’t long at all before I discovered that Twitter is one of the most powerful communication tools ever invented. It also wasn’t long before I got an earful from critics who said social media was bad news.
