5 Incredible Books Every Blogger Needs To Read

A little less than a year ago, I quit college to pursue entrepreneurship full time. 

Some say I was foolish for turning down a fully-funded education. That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Like most entrepreneurs, you and I want to be successful. We want to be the greatest people we can possibly be. If that weren’t true, you wouldn’t be here reading this right now.

Those who truly become great are those who keep growing. The people that keep learning and improving. And for those people, their education never really ends.

As I write this, I sit next to over 200 books that I have purchased over the years regarding topics such as building wealth, investing, entrepreneurship, self-improvement, and building a successful mindset. At a minimum, I read at least one of these books a month.

I firmly believe that I owe a lot of who I am today due to the insights and advice these books have given me. While not all of them are directly related to blogging, I would like to share of these books with you that I believe every blogger should read.  [Read more…]

Taking A Break From Blogging? Don’t Feel Bad!

If you’ve been following me closely, you’ll have noticed that things haven’t been going as normal.

I’ve been blogging pretty inconsistently.

I’m not nearly as active on social media platforms as I’ve been in the past.

You aren’t finding my smiling face on other people’s blogs or on marketing forums.

The places where you could expect to see me practically any time you visited, I’m now not showing up at all.

Passive Income Does Not Triumph Total Return

Take a look at any big internet marketing website, and I’ll bet you’ll see something huge about ‘earning passive income.’

People are crazy over it. Everybody’s talking about it.

“Earn money while you sleep!”

“Work 4 hours a week!”

“Build it once, earn money from it forever!”

That’s great. Passive income is actually pretty wonderful. Passive income is the reason I’ve published over 150 Kindle books and continue to put out more every week. Having money come in while no longer doing any work truly is an amazing feeling.

However, it’s extremely easy to get lost in the idea of passive income and forget what’s really important – how much money you’re getting in total for the amount of time you’ve invested in something.  [Read more…]

I’m Looking For Affiliates!

I’ll keep this short and sweet.

I’m looking for people who want to make money promoting my business / finance related courses to their own website visitors and subscribers.

I currently have an entry level blogging course, a course on Kindle publishing, and a course on achieving financial independence and retiring early. Collectively, these courses already have over 3500 satisfied students.

I also have plans to release courses on other internet marketing and finance topics in the coming months.

These courses sell for $197 and affiliates will earn a 50% commission, or $98.50 per sale.

Free coupons will be given out to interested affiliates that have an audience or email list they can promote to.

Please send me an email if you’re interested and I can provide you with more information.


May we both make lots of money,

James McAllister



CTA Skin Review – Highlight Your Call To Action And Increase Conversions!

If you want to make more money quickly, you only need to do one of two things.

You need to either expand your reach and increase your traffic, or you need to do more with the traffic you’ve already got.

Now I think it goes without saying that more traffic is always a good thing, but if that traffic isn’t making you any money then it doesn’t help much.

Improving your conversion rate and doing more with the traffic you’ve already got is the best way to develop a profitable system that will serve you well over the long-term. Today, I’d like to share with you a plugin that will help you achieve that.

It’s called CTA Skin.

Aweber vs GetResponse: A Detailed Analysis And Review

When it comes to choosing an email marketing service for your business, it almost always comes down to two choices:

“Should I sign up to Aweber or GetResponse?”

The truth is that very few if any other companies come close at all to the extensive number of features and fantastic functionality that these two companies provide with their email marketing services.

However, we all want to get the best bang for our buck, and when it comes to something as important as our email lists, we want to make sure the choice we make is the right one for us. And when two companies are both so fantastic, making that choice can be hard.

In this article, I’d like to explain some of the differences between Aweber and GetResponse, and help you decide which email marketing service is the best choice for you and your business. [Read more…]

You’re A Business Owner So Make Your Own Freaking Rules!

If you came here expecting some long informative post that you’re used to seeing on here, this isn’t one of them. If this upsets you, click the back button. If you can handle that, read on.

I have noticed an ever increasing trend both in my business life and my personal life of people feeling as if they must do things by the book. They are afraid to do what they believe is right, because other people have not confirmed their ideas. They are afraid to take chances or do things differently.

Quite frankly, that hurts everybody. The business owner, because you get none of the rewards that come with taking risks, and for your visitors as well, because you’re probably boring like the vast majority of people are.

We can talk all day about how to get people to like you, trust you, whatever. But none of that is important if they don’t even remember who you are.  [Read more…]

Going From Blog To Online Media Empire – The Ultimate Guide

Going from an ordinary blogger to an extremely successful businessperson is all about scale.

You start off by developing a profitable system. When, and only when you finally have a good system in place, you scale it up as much as you can and reap the rewards.

Of course, neither of those are easy. Many people focus a lot of time on creating a profitable system, because that’s the first vital step. For a moment though, let’s talk about what to do once you’ve got that system in place.

Let’s talk about scaling it up. Let’s talk about building an entire online empire.

Utilize Affiliates To Skyrocket Profits

If you’re like most bloggers, you did not start out with a product of your own.

You didn’t operate like a normal business. You didn’t sell anything to a potential customer. You relied on other income streams like advertising revenue, or promoting other people’s products as an affiliate. All of your income came from a third-party rather than from the customer themself.

I was this way too – for many years in fact. And I’ll be honest with you, there’s nothing wrong with that.

But let’s be real here – money often comes much easier when you are on the other side of the coin. When you create a product, and let everyone else do the hard work of marketing it for you. After all, it’s not like you lose anything – they only get paid when you get paid. Profit all around.

This is the exact strategy I’ll be using to take my course sales to the next level. Let me explain.
