I must admit, when I hear a new idea for the first time, I usually take it with a grain of salt…
BUT – when several people I respect start talking about the SAME idea – that’s when I sit up and take notice.
Here’s What Happened…
A couple of weeks ago, I watched a ‘Whiteboard Friday’ session by Rand Frishkin over at SEOmoz.com.
Rand predicted that over the next 6-12 months there’d be a major shift away from ‘building’ links back towards ‘earning’ links, and suggested a number of cool ways to do this including:
- Participating in online communities that are active and authentic in a way that people notice you and link to your content organically.
- Becoming active on social media networks.
- Guest blogging on ‘leading’ blogs in your niche.
The Next Piece of the Puzzle
Then last week on our ‘Disavow Tool’ webinar, Leslie Rhodie who is often called the ‘Godfather of SEO’ spoke about the importance of engaging with your market and shared the following slide:
When I saw this slide, I realised that Rand and Leslie were basically saying the same thing…
In a post Penguin world, the best way to secure top rankings, generate traffic and increase your sales was to connect with your market, deliver great content and focus on adding genuine value to the lives of your readers.
And then it hit me…
The ‘NEW SEO’ was in fact – Market Leadership
Rather than trying to find a loophole in Google’s algorithm and ‘gaming’ the system, your efforts are now much better spent focusing on becoming a leader in your market.
The BIG problem with Market Leadership…
The only problem with this idea of becoming a market leader is that…
It takes FOREVER!
If you’re trying to regularly produce high quality articles, videos, and podcasts AND engage in conversation with your readers via Facebook and Twitter – you can easily end up working 10 hours a day.
In fact a CBS news article revealed that 61% of online business owners said they work six or more days per week, and more than 10 hours per day.
Now I don’t know about you, but that’s NOT why I started an online business!
How To Become A Market Leader In 5 Minutes a Day
The great news is that there is another way to become a market leader and we want to share it with you today.
You see last year I spoke at one of Ed Dale’s seminars, and I was lucky enough to be in the room, when a guy named Pete Williams delivered THE BEST presentation I have ever seen at an Internet Marketing event.
Pete has kindly given us permission to share part of that presentation with you, and in the following video – he reveals how to become a market leader in only 5 minutes a day.
It’s kinda like the 4 Hour Work Week – ON STEROIDS!
Everyone who has watched this video, has been totally blown away by what Pete can achieve in 5 minutes a day using a super smart system to leverage his time and knowledge.
The video’s only 14 minutes long, so be sure to watch all the way to the end.
