How To Create Authority Blogs and Passive Monthly Income

I had the pleasure of the starting the first round of sessions at the 2013 Affiliate Summit East. Myself, Zac Johnson, John Rampton, and Syed Balkhi showed the assembled crowd exactly what it takes to create an authority blog and make massive passive income.

Syed was the moderator and asked the questions for the first 40 minutes. Then he turned the mic over to the floor so the people in the audience can get answers to questions specific to them. Judging by the feedback, Creating Authority Blogs and Passive Monthly Income was one of the most popular sessions of the entire show.

Readers have asked me for a recording of the session. Unfortunately, recording of ASE sessions is strictly not allowed. The sessions are recorded by Affiliate Summit, but are only available to attendees, If you were at the show and you missed my session, you will be able to watch it later.

Look for more 2013 Affiliate Summit East coverage later today.

    Maybe the crazy thing about it is that building this authority site was actually easier than building one of those crappy little niche websites

      hey Ben

      Sometimes it is better to invest your time and effort, skills and money into authority sites… you’re into a different mindset when starting a mini site compared with an authority site

      Most people start their mini site with the intention (or hope) to make a quick buck – if they don’t succeed, they give up, often before achieving their first sale or minor success…

      When one starts an authority site, they think and know fast results will not come, so they put time into quality content that people will tell others about… and that’s what makes them a success…

  2. It’s too bad you weren’t able to record it John. I wish I could have been there.

    Yes, I’ve done a few narrow-focused niche sites myself, but I’d advise to anyone that it’s better to input a heavy load of working hours into one single project that will (hopefully) dominate the market/niche, than waste your time with little blogs no one has ever heard of.

  10. Nice ideas on how to make money.But without passion,a plan and action then make money online remains only a desire.

    Hi John,
    alk of the gathering big eagles in blogging! I agree, the organizers of Affiliate Marketing Summit has drumed it before the program that videos of the events will only be available as premium copies to paid members maybe in a year or so.

    However, I still believe there is a way followers of your blog and others will benefit from the sessions on Authority blogs and passive income building. Please find a way to help your followers 🙂

    My opinion has also been shared in the IM social site – where this post was read.

    Mini niche sites are past, only authority site is future…:)

  17. How I wish you can do the recording, or could you blog about it? I’m really interested in Niche Sites, and getting the most traffic within the shortest time using SEO.
