Brand spankin’ new episode of The Rise To The Top for you and I’m A-ing the heck out of your Q’s. About a zillion questions came in this week and after sleepless nights, I decided to hop on three of ’em to dive into including….

1. Is there a ‘best time’ to launch a new product & program (meaning on the calendar to avoid big holidays)?
2. Spending money on advertising for mediapreneurs. Where is the best place?
3. Is it better to record a live workshop and sell it online OR turn that workshop into a powerpoint presentation?

Plus much more and a reminder about the big a$$ Apple gift card giveaway contest (thanks to our buddies at Citrix).

All in today’s episode.

Listen below and see you in the comments!



I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ’em out.

Annndddddd it is almost webinar time! Tomorrow (or today if you are a slow-email-opener), Friday, October 25th at 2 PM EST is the big, big new webinar I’m hosting: “How to Create an Awesome Online Course to Monetize Your Blog (or Podcast)”

-Registration for this webinar has been the MOST ever. If you haven’t already, register up.

-I can promise two big things at this webinar (besides great content):

1. I have a free giveaway for everyone that attends.
2. I will organically work in a “That’s what she said” at least one time during the webinar. Unplanned. But it will happen. I promise on the legacy of Michael Scott- it will happen.

    David! Thanks for answering my question on this episode! Great advice, I like the idea of giving away a freebie. Have you tried sending traffic into a Facebook Fan page > into a “tab” for people for sign up on a lead form there as opposed to an external site/landing page? I’ve heard that advertising with Facebook to build a fan page and generate leads can be very inexpensive. Thanks again!

    1. We have not personally tested that yet but yes that absolutely works as I have lots of friends who do it. The key is not to focus on likes, but leads.

  2. Great stuff as always man. Lovin the Q&A series. Thanks for keeping it real and easy to understand!

    Another great episode, D. Looking forward to tomorrow’s rockin’ webinar.
