Get the All-Theme Pack Now Before It Becomes Recurring (Plus: $150 Off Instantly)

lock in the pro plus all-theme pack today (and save big)

A change is coming to our biggest and best-selling product.

The StudioPress Pro Plus Pack — which gives you immediate, on-demand access to every active theme in the StudioPress library — is about to add a recurring component.

Note that I said about to add. Nothing is changing immediately.

But the change is coming soon (likely at the end of January 2016), which is why we’re letting you know about a special offer happening this week only.

We want you to have every opportunity to lock in the current Pro Plus offer.

Here’s the offer …

For a single investment in Pro Plus today, you get unlimited access to:

  • All current StudioPress themes (there are more than 40 as of today)

  • All future StudioPress themes (several are already in development)

  • All design, security, and functionality updates

  • All current and future third-party themes we add to Pro Plus (there are five currently)

  • Support for all themes
 (we support StudioPress themes, while the third-party developers support their themes)

You get all of this for the lifetime of your account. You never make another payment.

Until this special offer ends on Thursday, December 31, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time — you get $ 150 off as well.

It’s the largest discount we’ve ever given for Pro Plus.

That’s more than 30 percent off of a deal that already saved you more than $ 1,000 compared to purchasing everything separately.

Click here to learn more about Pro Plus

(and get $ 150 off)

And Pro Plus keeps getting more valuable as more themes get added.

What will the recurring element look like?

It will be pretty simple.

Right now, you make one payment and receive everything as long as you maintain your StudioPress account (so, basically, as long as you want it).

Once the recurring component is added, new Pro Plus customers will make one payment to activate their accounts and then make smaller annual payments to maintain access.

Obviously, recurring customers will get to keep any themes they have downloaded and are using, but they will need to make the recurring payment each year to maintain their access to:

  • All existing themes
  • All future themes

  • All updates

  • Support

Again: this change is not happening now. It’s happening at the end of January 2016.

But we wanted to give you a heads up way in advance in case you want to lock in a Pro Plus account before the recurring component comes.

Plus get $ 150 off when you do. ”</p

How to Use Content Curation to Create a Recurring Revenue Business

a close-up image of a man looking through binoculars

It’s no secret that I’m a tireless advocate for the creation of original content to fuel business growth. My next online project, however, is based on … curation.

You read that right. I’m starting a new site, and the centerpiece of my content strategy will be locating and making sense of the smartest articles, audio, and video I can find in that topical market that are created by others.

Sound strange?

Listen in and check out the three-part process I’m following, so you can start building your own profitable content curation strategy:

In this 49-minute episode Robert and I discuss:

  • Why my new project is based on simple content curation
  • The critical centerpiece of your content curation strategy
  • Three ways to get traffic to your curation-based website
  • The counterintuitive power of guest posting
  • What you can learn from the initial failure of the TED Conference
  • The impresario approach to building an online business
  • A simple way to generate word-of-mouth growth
  • How I plan to monetize my curation-focused platform

Build Your List and Make Your Audience Love You with Recurring Content Events

family watching television

You know the drill: another day, another piece of content to connect with your audience.

You churn out post after post, social media update after social media update — typing, typing, typing all the way.

It reminds me a little of this classic Dunkin’ Donuts commercial.

We’ve all felt like Fred the Baker from time to time — dragging ourselves to our keyboards to create yet another readable, but forgettable, post.

What if you could break the “time to make the donuts” cycle with an information-packed piece of content that readers would line up (and sign up) to consume?

Enter the content event

Content events aren’t blog posts, podcasts, newsletters, infographics, social media posts, or email newsletters.

Content events share a few things in common:

  • They happen on a specific date
  • You send out an invitation to attend
  • You gather RSVPs
  • You offer some kind of “replay” of the event
  • You follow up with attendees when the event is over

The most important characteristic of a content event is that it’s delivered live — like the upcoming Authority webinar, How to Create a Recurring Content Event that Builds Your List, which occurs this Friday, October 10 at 11:00 a.m Eastern Time.

Click here to register for this Authority master class

Content events create a level of excitement and engagement that goes beyond everyday content consumption.

Because they happen at a specific moment in time, both delivering and attending them feel like a special occasion.

Three types of content events

There are three events that qualify as live content events, and I’ve listed them below in order from simple to complex:

  • Live teleclasses
  • Live webinars
  • Live presentations

If you’ve never hosted a content event before, start with a teleclass. The technology is easy to manage, and you don’t have to create any slides.

Instead, you can focus on:

Deciding on the date for the event, and the technology you’ll use.

Find a date and time that works for your audience, and sign yourself up for a teleclass service. A good one to try if you’re just starting out is FreeConferenceCallHD.com.

Working on a compelling event name.

It’s essential to write an irresistible event name. Don’t be afraid to make a big promise and use a title that creates curiosity.

Pinning down your goal for the event.

Do you want to attract more people to your email list? Or do you want to offer a product or service after your presentation? Or do you simply want to communicate solid information and build your authority? (Why not aim for all three?)

Writing a series of invitations to the event.

Create a separate email list for the event, and as people sign up, set up your subsequent emails so they don’t go out to people who are already on the attendee list.

Preparing a follow-up email you’ll send after the event.

Have an email ready and waiting that you’ll use to deliver the replay of the event.

Assembling the material you’ll present.

Include an introduction, an overview of the information you’ll cover, a few main points, and a summary of the lessons taught during the event. If you want listeners to take a specific action, include a call to action at the end.

The basic preparation steps for a webinar and a presentation are similar: focus on your goal, invite attendees, present, and follow up.

Maximize your content event results

To boost the number of attendees at your content event, try a multi-pronged promotional strategy:

  • Email marketing, to invite current members of your email list to attend
  • Blog posts, to reach a wider audience
  • Social media posts, to reach friends of your followers

To boost your attendee numbers even more, consider:

  • Asking colleagues with similar audiences to mention your event to their followers
  • Buying social media ads to get your event in front of more people
  • Writing guest posts with an invitation to the content event in your bio blurb

Don’t be shocked if you spend as much, or more, time putting together the promotional materials for your event as you do putting together the material you’ll teach during the event itself!

Running a content event is like planning a dinner party. You spend days — maybe weeks — planning, prepping, inviting, and following up on invites. The event itself comes and goes relatively quickly.

But if you do it right, the effects of your content event will be felt for a long time. And your audience will appreciate that this time you went beyond making donuts.

Discover how content events build your list

During this Friday’s Authority webinar at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, we’ll take a detailed look at how to plan, structure, and follow up after an event so you enjoy the lasting positive effects content events offer.

How to Create a Recurring Content Event that Builds Your List is free for Authority members. You just need to log in to Authority to sign up.

Not a member? Try Authority risk-free to get exclusive webinars like this one nearly every week of the year, along with ongoing networking opportunities, discounts, and education.

See you Friday, October 10 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern!
