Conversion Blogging Video

Posted By Darren Rowse 23rd of July 2008 Miscellaneous Blog Tips 0 Comments

Yaro's Video.pngYaro Starak from the popular Blog Mastermind mentoring program has today released a video that looks at a processing of making money from blogs that he calls Conversion Blogging. Yaro’s been using it to make over $10,000 a month from his blog.

Yaro is an expert at building an audience and using email newsletters to market to them. The video gives a lot of food for thought (it’s 32 minutes) and is worth setting some time aside to watch. It’s free for you to watch without having to opt into anything.

There is also a 2nd followup video that requires you to give your email address and a name – however you get a good feel for whether you want to do that with the first video and can opt out at any point. Yaro tells me that there are more videos and interviews with pro bloggers coming in the next week or so for those who opt in.

Blog Mastermind Mentoring Program Relaunch

All of this is a part of the relaunch of Yaro’s Blog Mastermind mentoring program which was previously so successful that he had to close the doors to new members. Yaro is opening the doors up again in the coming week or so and these videos are a part of that process. They’ll give you a really good taste of whether the mentoring program is something that you’ll want to participate in.

Yaro gave me a guest pass to participate in Blog Mastermind last time he ran it and it was a really worthwhile program.

What I like about everything that Yaro does it that he’s not into hype, he presents clearly and humbly and on the one occasion that I know of where someone I know didn’t find the course to meet their expectations he refunded their money.

I also love Blog Mastermind because it’s more relational than many blogging courses on the market.

PS: Are you a Pre Blogger or Beginner Blogger?

Yaro also has a great series of 10 free videos on some of the basics of blogging at Become a Better Blogger. In them he talks you through key beginner questions around blog platforms, domain names, hosting, installing WordPress and more. It’s a great primer for those wanting to take the plunge into blogging or those wanting to take a step into more serious blogging.

  • Yaro has some good stuff on his blog. I read it every week.

  • This guy really got the stuff. Really useful for bloggers who would like to make money from their blog(s).

  • i open your blog everyday to get some idea what is blogging al about.Thank for this article.It is very useful

  • Excellent video Darren….thanks for sharing!

  • Thanks for letting people know about this video Darren.

    I expect we will see more bloggers get into email marketing and learn how to use it responsibly and effectively, just as you have done recently with your email newsletters.

    If anyone has any questions, please feel free to post here and I will check back and respond.


  • I would love to make 5 g a week I could get a biodiesel hummer

  • Definitelly I’m a … Blogger, because I don’t make money from blogging… Great article… made it to help us for better blogging.

  • I love the idea of starting a mailing list. I think it would be a great way to start brining in repeat visitors.

  • I watched both the videos….I found them very informative…My brain is buzzing with ideas now. Thank you Yaro for the videos. These are some of the most educative videos I have watched in this field (and they are free).

  • You will definately take the first prize in the contest Darren.

  • Great video. Here at MindValleyLabs we use blogging to generate leads and sign-ups for our email list. Ultimately, we make our millions from email marketing to our gigantic lists collection which totals close to half a million subscribers.

    So yes, I like the advise Yaro has to offer.

  • I already commented on Yaro’s blog, but originally found his video through Darren’s tweeting, so must leave a note here too.

    He did a great job relaying a lot of valuable content. If anyone here is wondering if they should spend 30 minutes watching this: ABSOLUTELY.

    I already make a living blogging, but I haven’t been the entrepreneur type (most of my money comes from Adsense), and Yaro is slowly but surely winning me over to the idea of building an email list and working harder to establish relationships with my readers.

    After watching the video, I’m pretty sure I’m going to sign up for his course. I know I’ll learn a lot about the business aspect of blogging, and that’s definitely been my weakness.

    So, thanks for the video, Yaro, and thanks for letting me stalk you, er follow you, on Twitter. ;)

  • I only found Yaro’s blog about a month ago and it rocks!

  • Rob

    How much is enrollment? I don’t see the cost on the site.

  • I came across this blog a few weeks ago and I’m really into it!

  • This is great. I will take some time to watch the video this week. I can always use some help to improve my blogging. That way I can give my readers better stuff

  • Incredible! Great information that was tied up so neatly with a beautiful bow. Yaro’s presentation skills are precise, clear and to the point…Doesn’t get any better.

  • ok i think this video did made me think seriously about my blog i will surly add few things there to make it more impressive.

  • I’m learning new things everyday. Yaro is one of my favourite bloggers. I will publish the video on my blog, too, so my readers will learn some new things.

  • Great idea and resources. Still, it is not and should not always be “all about making money”. There is so much more to life. What about blogging to help people or blog to attract clients who are doing that and therefore have an indirect effect on a good cause (that is what direction I am going in soon). I realize this comment may not get posted but it’s necessary people start thinking about what is truly important.

  • I just watched the first video and it was great!!!

    Yaro reminds me of you, Darren, in that he’s unselfish in sharing information and not into hype.

    Thanks for sharing! :o)

  • Well researched site – will look to incorporate some of your ideas into my site.
