Smart Work Report: Matthew Gartland

In the first of the Smart Work Report series, COO/CFO Matthew Gartland shares how he works, his favorite business tools, and the transformation of Team SPI. Matthew Gartland April 15, 2019 Editor’s Note: This is the first in a new series we are testing out here at SPI, and you know how much we love experiments! We’re inspired by other journal-like content we’ve seen around the web like the Money Diaries and Feel Good Diaries from Refinery29, as well as the standard format of the much loved How I Work series from Lifehacker.com. In this series we hope to capture a vast array of not only different types of work that people do in the online space, but also the different ways we all work toward our goals and positive impact with our jobs, businesses, or brands.

Introducing AMP’d Up Podcasting—My New Advanced Podcasting Course!

Introducing my brand-new advanced podcasting course: AMP’d Up Podcasting! Too many podcasters are powered up, but falling flat. Don’t let that be you and sign up for AMP’d Up Podcasting today. Pat Flynn March 25, 2019 A couple of weeks ago, I shared some stories of SPI audience members who had taken my Power-Up Podcasting course and used what they learned to not just build a better podcast, but to use that podcast to grow and improve their business. It’s awesome to see how so many podcasters are doing life-changing things with their show, and taking their businesses to heights they probably never imagined! As much as ever, I’m a big believer in the power of podcasting. But there’s a sad lining to this story, and that’s what I want to talk about today. Too Many Podcasters Are Powered up but Falling Flat At the same time that many podcasters are […]

This Game-Changing Tool Helped Me Earn 6-Figures

In a new Campaign Income Report, learn how this game-changing tool helped me earn 6-figures: RightMessage, the ultimate tool in audience personalization! Pat Flynn February 18, 2019 Welcome to another campaign-based income report here on Smart Passive Income. This month, we’re going to examine a promotion I ran at the end of last year for Cyber Monday to promote my online courses. I’ve run small promotions during Cyber Monday before, but only for my architectural-related business. Why not anywhere else? Because I had no other products of my own to sell! Up until 2017, affiliate marketing had accounted for about 90 percent of my income, with podcast sponsorships, books, speaking, and niche sites making up the rest. Then, I finally created my own courses to better serve my audience, and have seen a significant increase in income ever since. There were a lot of lessons learned and many things that […]
