Free Teleclass On Profiting From Content

Interested in discovering how you can move from being a “writer” to becoming a true profitable “content producer“?

You’re invited to join me this Tuesday night November 27th from 7-8pm CST for the last FREE teleclass that I’ll be offering in 2007.

I’ll be interviewing someone who is earning a 6 figure income from content and has literally written the Cash Content Formula.

We’ll be covering rich topics together such as:

  • How is content defined anyway? How should I think about content?
  • What are some of the best ways to make money from content?
  • Insider short-cuts to profits through quality content?
  • Advice for article authors who want to make more money from their content.
  • The (3) biggest mistakes that content producers make and how to avoid them.
  • How to start profiting from content…where to start or advance first?


This teleclass is limited to the first 250 people to call in and with 70,000+ expert authors on my private list, I expect the teleclass will be full.

DATE: Tuesday November 27th 2007
TIME: 7-8pm CST USA Time

Dial-In Conference Number: +1 (218) 486-1300
Conference Bridge Number: 182222


Cathy Stucker, Author of Cash Content Formula, an easy to understand course that reveals the easy formula for turning content into multiple streams of income for you.

Why am I doing a FREE Teleclass on how to Profit from Content when I could easily sell seats to such an event?

  1. Because I contributed Disc #7 to Cathy’s Cash Content Formula.
  2. Because I hugely respect the fellow experts who are also part of Cathy’s course.
  3. Because EzineArticles becomes stronger when our members win in terms of finding new ways to profit from their content.
  4. Because I know Cathy Stucker personally and know that she’s not in the ‘get rich quick’ market… meaning, she’s in it for the long haul.
  5. Because I’ve personally reviewed her Cash Content Formula course and know it’s going to help a lot of people to avoid pain by shortening the learning curve when trying to increase your profits from content.
  6. Because I like to have fun and helping our expert authors or soon-to-become expert authors is fun.

Trying Something New With This Free Teleclass:

In prior events, I required those who wanted to attend to give up their email address and name before I’d reveal the secret teleclass call in data. After reading about the concept of “moving the free line” down (thanks Eben), I thought it’d be fun to remove the barrier to entry so that attending this event (last of its kind from me in 2007) would be as easy as printing out this page and making the call.

NOTE: This is not a relentless product pitch event. Yes, I am doing this free teleclass to introduce Cathy’s new Cash Content Formula product, but we will keep the new product mention to less than 15% of the teleclass so that you’re guaranteed 51 jam-packed minutes of great information you can use immediately! In fact, we’re going to skip the intro’s of our VIP guests calling in so that we can jump into the core concepts prepared for the teleclass.

Please answer this question: (some questions may be used Tuesday night during the teleclass with Cathy)

What is your single biggest challenge to overcome when trying to profit or improve your ability to profit from your content?



QUESTION: Will this Free Teleclass be Recorded and will a replay of it be available?

ANSWER: YES, this teleclass will be recorded, but I’m undecided if or how long a replay will be made available due to the time-sensitive offer being made at the end of the class for those joining us.

Great idea for a TeleClass!

Once we “writers” get past the blocks and get to writing compelling copy – the BIG question is…(regardless of what we are promoting)

In an article – WHAT gets people to TAKE ACTION and go to our sites noted in the resource box?

Comment provided November 26, 2007 at 3:42 PM



My biggest problem is creating articles that are research based and filled with useful content, not just content that people will find of interest, but useful. In my mind there is a difference.

Hi Chris!

This is very interesting! I’m waiting for the tape because I cannot follow the Teleseminars being in Greece. We here are around 9 hours in front of you, I never know how to calculate the time and I don’t like to stay in the phone too long.

I’m curious about what Cathy will suggest, though!

I saw many sites that pay for content, but it has to be exclusive, only for their site.
I prefer to write articles for and see Google Alert everyday showing me how many of my articles other people picked up in order to use them in their sites.

Now, my answer to the question: What is your single biggest challenge to overcome when trying to profit or improve your ability to profit from your content?
I don’t know!
I have so many things to write about!
Perhaps the necessity to repeat several basic aspects many times could be considered a problem.

Thank you for showing us how we can start profiting from content! This is very nice from you!

I write articles that might list 3 ways to do Xyz. Step 2 might be hard to do so I mention that I’ve created software that does it for them.

Then I continue to step 3.

My question is:

Is it ok to make a reference to my product in the middle of the article (embedded text link) when i submit my article to article directories?

My biggest problem: I can provide a lot of information about my topic / field of expertise (adventure travel in BC, Canada) but I don’t think it’s something anybody would want to pay me for…so I’d need to think of a product first that I could turn into money/profit and that’s my challenge.

Cheers, Andy

I would like to raise a point that is important to the writer of an article and also the reader.

Recently it was no longer allowed to use affiliate links in articles, I have no problem with that and in fact can see the reasons.

My website is an information site with a lot of categories making it simpler for the reader to navigate.

When I submit an article I can only use my main site page ie http:// cothivalebooks . com. [EDITORS NOTE: UNLINKED ON PURPOSE PER BLOG COMMENT POLICY]
But the information that I am trying to lead the reader towards would be perhaps http:// www. cothivalebooks. com/product.php?products_id=231 [EDITORS NOTE: UNLINKED ON PURPOSE PER BLOG COMMENT POLICY]

This is not an affiliate link but a page properly written up to give the reader immediate and direct access to the information discussed in the article. If they are lead straight to the main webpage only, then they have to navigate to find the information themselves.

I would imagine that a lot of php websites are set up in a similar manner.

I understand that the rules are the rules and I am certainly not wanting to buck the system but is there not a case for allowing the page link for multi page websites?

My two biggest challenges seem to be lack of TIME to finish articles and other tasks, and trying to figure out the TECHNOLOGY to automate things. (Not that it is difficult, just another thing to “look into”.)

This is a great idea for a teleclass, and I hope I get home in time to be able to join you tomorrow.

Thank you.

I applaud the concept of ‘free line down’

My biggest issue is giving enough useful, quality content to generate interest in my content writing skills, without giving so much information that I’m no longer needed

Moving the “free line” toward the “paid line” seems to be my biggest problem. I’ve built a decent sized list of fairly responsive buyers… based upon them receiving my free content (whch they all tell me they love). I’ve just got to stop giving too much away.

Thanks, Chris. My biggest problem is bridging the gap between interested readers and product purchasers. If the income is to occur from information products I create, a second problem is knowing where to draw the line between giving it all away free in articles and understanding what people will find valuable enough to pay for. Of course there are other possible ways to generate income from content, I assume, other than snagging traffic. So a third problem would be identifying those other cash-generating options!

Hi Chris,

I really want to hear what you and Cathy Stucker have to say. I’m not sure but I think you are probably in America so its not practical for me to phone in from Europe. Can I listen in on the web? Any idea what time it will be GMT?

Keep up the good work.

I think the big question is, what is the most effective way to pick the content of our articles we write to build our lists and generate more business.
For instance, what kind of articles get the best response, highly targeted specific content, general content related to our website, or a combination of both? Thank you for this great opportunity to get advice from an expert. I look forward to the call. Thanks again.

The product I sell online (decorative pillows) is difficult for me to work up “a rant” about… I like the products we have and I am excited about each new one we select for the site (there are over 500 throw pillows there, now!) but it’s hard for me to imagine anyone else getting as excited about something as mundane and ordinary as a “couch pillow”!  That hold’s me back… (Yup-piee another pillow!  That’s how I feel) so I write about “Color” or some related topic… I guess I write BEST when I’m disturbed about something… Perhaps I should write about how upset I am that “no one’s” looking at my site! : ) (the html is a joke)

Another private query sent in wanted this:

What I need by way of guidance:
1. subject matter for articles,
2. approx length of that particular article,
3. permission to embellish article with pictures and images,
4. help sort out technical problems that arise while submitting articles, such as,
4:1 ordinary text turn to html after posting,
4:2 name of author change after posting,
4:3 allow the whole article to be bolded to be easy-on-eyes to read.


Working on the replay right now… will have it uploaded before the day is over.
