I have been waiting over a year to write this blog!!!
That’s right, last May (2013), my brother Luke and I embarked on a mission to do the following:
Open up a free Youtube account from scratch
Add at least one video per week starting only with “Ugly” black and white PowerPoint presentation (no cameras, microphones, etc.)
Have no associated website with the videos or the YouTube channel except for a simple $10 landing page
We would optimize our videos inside of YouTube (with some of the tactics we have learned over the years) to see just how many views we could get to our “Ugly” videos

To blog, or not to blog…
Out of all of the organic, content driven Internet Marketing pieces of the puzzle, the one that you can’t really live without if you have any intention of mastering online marketing is blogging. And that is why we put together this powerful video called Financial Advisor Blogging Tips.
The best analogy that I can think of to show you the importance of blogging is to compare it to your house. Could you ever imagine buying a home for you and your family that didn’t have a kitchen?
Yes, the home would still work in terms of shelter and a place to lay your head, but without a kitchen you would have to eat out every single meal. There would be no family unity, there would be no conversations around the kitchen table, and it would certainly be hard to ever have friends over.Read More
