A couple years ago, Brian Clark and the team at Copyblogger Media started something called Authority.
It’s a combination teaching/training/resources/forums site that teaches you, the online business owner, how to develop a successful content-based business. If you’re putting together a portable career, you need (small-a) authority to:
- Find and win clients
- Attract an audience to your website
- Sell your product or service
It’s hard to describe Authority unless you’ve experienced it. I’ve been an Authority member since they opened the doors (and yes, I’m also an affiliate).
When you join, you’ll have access to:
- More than 200 hours of online marketing education
- Monthly seminars and weekly live Q&A sessions
- Member networking forum
- Lots of members-only discounts on other Copyblogger media offerings, including StudioPress WordPress themes
- You’ll also get everything that’s coming up, which includes live interviews with experts in marketing, social media, blogging, SEO and more.
“That’s all well and good,” you may be thinking, “but what does it really mean to me?”
The Best Content Marketing Training Available
To succeed at almost any portable career, you’ll have to do some content marketing. Authority provides the content marketing training and networking you’ll need to succeed.
Who can benefit from Authority?
- Solopreneurs, like photographers and artists or accountants
- Professional Housesitters
- And lots more
Who are the Teachers
So who’s doing all this training? It’s people who’ve walked the walk.
Brian Clark started Copyblogger, and in a few years has moved from “just” a blog to a marketing empire with over 100,000 customers. And all without advertising, borrowing, or venture capital.
He’s added a team of marketers, bloggers and other professionals, each of whom has achieved success in his or her own right before joining the Copyblogger team.
The member forums are where I spend the most time in Authority.
In the forums, you can ask questions and get answers from experts and your peers, both. You can see how others are handling particular issues, you can get and give recommendations, and you can network with other members and with the Copyblogger team.
It’s a great resource if you’re feeling frustrated, discouraged or confused, or when you have victories to share.
There’s a 30-day guarantee period, so you can check out Authority, take advantage of all the information, and start putting it to use. If you decide it’s not for you, just let them know.
It’s a small investment for your ultimate portable career success!
