How To Start a Tech/Review Blog Webinar Replay

Here is a replay of tonight’s webinar on how to start a tech/review blog. I want to thank everyone for showing up, and I especially want to thank my guest panelists for sharing their experiences on starting and running their tech sites.

While the topic of the webinar is about technology and review blogs, the advice given can be applied to any type of blogs, so it’s worth to watch the reply. These webinars are produced for your benefit so your feedback is what guides me as far as content and topics for future webinars. Your comments on this webinar and ideas for future webinars are welcome.

        Hey, nothing wrong with knowing where the good stuff is.

        Besides, this site is “the miscellaneous ramblings”.

      2. Do you really think that those photos of dot com pho is not useful ?

    2. Techabouts says:

    3. There are a lot of tech blog’s. Its nice to see a new one provided they are differentiated

    4. I’ll have to watch it for pointers. I’m sure you don’t have to start a tech blog to use some of the info n the webinar.

  2. Kirk Taylor says:

    This was the best one yet. I was so impressed I did a post right after it played. Thx John

    1. Hey Kirk hows it going man?

      1. Kirk Taylor says:

        Doing great! Are you heading to Blog World?

    2. Have you watched flippa webinar ?

      That was simply awesome.

      1. Techabouts says:

        Really it was Awesome

  3. sagorr says:

    yes. it will definitely help me to write some topics..

  4. Abhik says:

    Thanks John.. Downloading it for a later view.

    1. I have seen a few people comment and say they are going to download it, I looked everywhere and did not see a download link.

      1. Kevin Kimes says:

        Use keepvid.com to download it. First, click on the “YouTube” button in the lower left of the embedded video, this will pop a new tab or window with the YouTube page. Next, copy the video’s URL. Then go to KeepVid. Paste the URL where indicated at KeepVid, press enter. You then get a few download options for different quality settings. Just click one to download it.

        I’m downloading it right now.

    2. which plugin or software do you use to download.

      1. Techabouts says:

        Simply use Internet Download Manager.
        Does everything

  5. Great video,
    thank you John

    will be reviewd again’

  6. We’ve just start a website that based on tech and money making, but still have no idea about the contents so this article and the video really help.

    Thanks John.

    1. You are confuse about the contents for tech related blog … Strange …

    2. Jayrweblog says:

      Just keep searching about any other tutorial out there,

  7. ScorpionGod says:

    Whoo Nice video john. I’m going to download it now and view it freely. Again nice dude.
    Follow me on twitter

    1. Do not forget to download flippa webinar as well.

  8. Jack says:

    A great video. Review site is the best way to earn good money from the net.

    1. Techabouts says:

      Review sites are really good if you find the product has low comp.

  9. Jeffrey Kang says:

    One of the many problems people have is not being able to come up with the start up capital to run all of the background services everyone doesn’t mention like autoresponder, paid traffic, web development for custom themes, graphic design for logo, etc.

    I think it would be useful to many of your blog readers if you gave us a webinar detailing different ways to turn small amounts of cash into bigger chunks, say $100 into $1000 using things like site flipping, domain buying/selling, etc.

    I’m really interested in turning a free Google $100 adwords credit into something much bigger, much like the ebay story of a guy who traded-up a paperclip to a house.

    1. Yes, I agree with you Jeffrey! If its more possible to a zero capital that will boost could be a very very very big help! Anyway, could it be possible that there are free google adwords credit around?? If so, where??

    2. Joshua says:

      Not that it wouldn’t be a useful webinar, but most people use free services until they can afford to invest in the paid services (including everyone in the video).

      JohnChow.com ran on the free Misty Theme for WordPress for a couple of years at least (correct me if I’m wrong John) before getting any sort of customization by a designer.

      Flipping sites and domaining can be fun and profitable, but what matters most in the beginning, if not always (in building a successful website) is quality content and actually caring.

    3. Stephen says:

      Starting a site today is MUCH easier than it was 10 years ago. Everything that we paid for then is free today 🙂

  10. james says:

    thanks for the video John. I’m really interested in starting a tech blog.

    1. I’d be interested in seeing it when it launches! Keep me updated!

    2. Jayrweblog says:

  11. AWesome chow!

  14. Peter Hutyr says:

  15. Gunnar says:

    One thing that always made me refrain from starting a review blog in any tech niche is I felt it would be too time consuming to keep up with all the new developments. If you’re really into it, fine, you’d be doing that anyway. But if you’re only half interested like me it would be too much of a chore.

  16. PsychicJim says:

    A good Webinar is like a fine wine. You can taste its quality. Need I say more?

  17. Always enjoys his tips, really very useful! Thank for sharing these, will come in handy in my lectures

  18. Thanks John,

    Like you said the advice can be used for any type of niche.

    1. Jayrweblog says:

      Absolutely! Thanks to John,

  19. I would like to say thanks for the interesting video…..

  20. Also thanks for the tip to starting blog…I am speech less to say something about this post.really awesome…

  21. Rajiv says:

    interesting informative video, thanks John

  22. Techabouts says:

    Thanks a lot john

  23. non-sequitor question: How in the world can you upload an hour long video to YouTube?

    1. John Chow says:

      I am a YouTube partner. I have a no time limit. Just an upload limit of 20GB per video, which I think works out to over 8 hours of HD content. lol

      1. Thanks for the replay. My wife made me stop and eat dinner so I missed the first twenty-minutes. I still wear the pants in the house despite this.

      2. And that makes money as well …

      3. Techabouts says:

        My 50 videos even dont make 20Gb lol

      4. Jayrweblog says:

        That was amazing length of video, LOL

    1. Techabouts says:

      You can download it using keepvid or IDM

  35. I LOVE stories of other bloggers who are starting out. I always learn something new, pick up another idea or gain a fresh perspective. Thank you for the video and organizing the panel.

    1. PPC Ian says:

      That’s for sure! I have learned so much by listening to others, both new and seasoned (such as John Chow).

  36. TpC says:

    haven’t finished watching – but taking notes – good tips to apply to any model – not just a tech review blog
    i hear a lot of the same common sense advice – like quality over quantity… and more importantly – why? why are you doing this? do you have a passion for the niche or are you just in it for a quick buck?

  37. Louie Sison says:

    Thanks thanks thanks John. Very useful video

  38. Nice video! it gives me idea. Thanks John!

    OT.
    if you want to download videos from youtube..you can use youtube download and if you are using firefox browser, there’s an addons on it, just search ex. ‘youtube download video”

  39. PPC Ian says:

  42. Ricky says:

    Awesome thanks for Sharing this John! I really need to get started on a Tech blog.

  43. Kishore says:

    Thank you very much for embedding the video. First i read the post before the event and i felt that i can’t watch it. Just browsed normally and found the video, I am very much happy. And as of now I do have no such much time to watch the video, so i put the download n catch up later.

  44. Mary O'Brien says:

    Hey John,
    Nice content. I always find the info you present very helpful especially about blogging.

    We’ve been doing a lot of free webinars and paid web seminars lately. After testing 20+ webinar providers we finally settled on Ready Talk. It’s much easier to use than GoTo Meeting especially when you have multiple presenters and I think you’ll like it better.

    You can check it out here: http://meet.readytalk.com/content/PPCSummit. We are NOT affiliates for this, we’ve just been very happy with their product so I thought I’d share 🙂

    Cheers, Mary
