1. Content (Brilliant-5 vs. Blah-95)
"Oh no, not more content!", you might be thinking.
But the Digital Creators Academy is like nothing you've ever encountered.
What you find in a lot of online content and training these days, is there's a lot more of the "What", but not the "How".
It's like a college basketball coach barking "Play with more energy! Be unselfish! Pass the ball".
Ok, all that is well and good. Those are obvious things, and even someone who has never played or coached a single game can come up with those phrases.
But the best of them will actually break down the game, teach the players the exact things they should be doing on the floor, the specific "plays", where to move to when they're on the court, how to get to their comfortable spots on the floor, what is wrong with their shooting technique... all very specific things to help the players.
My Brilliant-5, Blah-95" rule
With Google's help, anyone can be an expert these days. 10 minutes of Googling will give you all the "information" you need to put together a blog post, or a Facebook post, or a PDF report. That's what I call the "Blah 95" - basically, 95% of such lists are usually filled with "blah" stuff.
But when you have been-there, done-that (like me), and you're able to extract the best information from what you know, explain what to do, what NOT to do, and more specifically, HOW to do it, and also throw in the WHY, that's how the "Brilliant 5%" is born.
No fluff. No "high-level" stuff. Everything broken down to the nitty-gritty. All of the details.
Those are the kinds of things you will learn in Digital Creators Academy.
Not the same-ol, same-ol blah, but stuff that no one is talking about, or teaching, or testing, or training others in.
Just think of the mind-numbing, crazy number of things we digital creators have to know and execute on nearly a day-to-day basis...
Starting with being an expert in your niche, identifying who your audience is, figuring out what products and services to create for them, building an audience, attracting your 1000 true fans, building a list, creating Audio, Video, Text and PDFs, launch, grow and monetize your products/podcast/YouTube and other channels, creating Online Courses, writing copy for your sales pages, landing pages, emails and blog posts, creating content marketing Video, Audio and Text content for different social platforms, content for your free bonuses to build a list, bonus content for your Kindle book and Podcast and Courses, knowing which tools to use, best practices, features to look for in those tools, how to be more productive, how to use automation tools, how to hire help online, how to maximize your money to get the biggest bang for your buck... phew!!
Not everyone can figure out all of the above, leave alone master them. Wouldn't it be great if you could quickly run a question you have by someone who has been-there and done-that? Imagine asking for feedback about something you've just created, or something you're about to create? Imagine someone holding you accountable, or telling you to stop going down that rabbit-hole, and pointed you in the right direction?
Imagine if you were in a giant maze with an electric fence, filled with minefields, and you're blindfolded... but there's a voice that's telling you exactly how to move, where to go, and how to get there, while avoiding getting blown up or electrocuted? Sorry, probably a bit too intense an example, but you get the idea.
And don't even think about trying to Google-through it or Crowd-source answers to your questions in Facebook groups. There is so much noise online, that information-overwhelm is probably the biggest challenge that most people are facing today, because it's so hard to know what to do and who to follow when everyone is claiming to be an "expert". And crowd-sourcing anything mission-critical, is just a recipe for disaster, as you'll get a hundred different answers and opinions from people who are telling you their personal experiences - or in many cases, borrowed opinions - and not what is the best thing for you and for your specific situation.
All those "masterclasses" in your Facebook feed, so many Facebook groups with so many conflicting opinions, so many "Influencers", Webinars and Seminars and Meetups and Facebook Live videos and Podcasts and Email Newsletters, and on and on... the noise is just never-ending.
The avalanche of information never stops! And there's no easy way to tell if those people peddling all those webinars and reports and courses actually know what they're talking about.
And a lot of these "make money online" marketers hawking courses, webinars and "success" reports, are not full-time entrepreneurs, and many still have a day-job. Now, don't mistake me - there's absolutely nothing wrong with having a day job - I had one too, for 10 years. My point is that if they're so good at what they're teaching, and what they're teaching works so well, how come they can't do it for themselves and make enough money to make a full-time living? How come they're more intent on making money by teaching how to make money, rather than practicing what they preach?
And that's why you've got to follow the right people. And you need a coach who can guide you through this maze that can get you from having a hobby to making a decent living.
I have spent 22 years figuring this out. And I'm guessing you don't have even 2 years, leave alone 22 years of time, to endlessly Google it, buy a boatload of courses, watch hours of webinars with 90% fluff, follow the wrong advice, go down the wrong rabbit-holes, make a lot of mistakes, waste hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars, and eventually try and figure all of this out on your own.
So if you want to cut-short the learning curve and make sure you're on the right path and can get to where you wish to get to in the shortest and most efficient way possible, then the only thing that remains to be answered, is this...
Are you willing to invest in a coach? And a mentor?
Someone who has been there and done that, and won't force square solutions on your round challenges when it comes to your specific, unique goals?
Someone who can give you the recommendations, advice and solutions that you need for your specific problems and challenges?
And now you can get 24 group coaching calls and 12 1-on-1 calls with someone who can do just that - yours truly :-)
I can help you take your business and your efforts and your endeavors to the next level.
And I'm giving you my entire library of great, relevant, just-in-time training to go along with that in the form of a Free, 1 Year Platinum Membership to my Digital Creators Academy.
I couldn't possibly pack more value into this than the offer you see below. So if you've ever been on the fence about working with me, then this is your best chance: Best offer, best price, best bonuses, with the best coach (and best-looking too!) ;-)
You may have heard people say this: Entrepreneurship can be the loneliest job in the world.
It's not just because you don't go to an actual office where there are other people working, and you get to pass people in the hallway, or bump into folks in the elevator, or going to lunch in a group, or gathering at the proverbial "water-cooler" and talking about the previous night's ball game or episode of popular TV show.
It's a lonely job because it is very hard to find and meet people who are traveling down the same path as you are, going through the same types of challenges as you are, trying to solve the same kinds of problems that you are.
Going to a live, in-person seminar, or downloading a tutorial, or going to a meeting, all of that is fine. But you are trying to get results, not simply looking for someone to have a drink with and talk about how many followers they have on Instagram.
You want "perspective". You want to hear about other people's "results". About their "mistakes". What worked for them, and more importantly, what did not work for them. So you can learn from their mistakes. And be inspired by their success.

I've been selling online since 1997.

And that is why I created the Digital Creators Academy - to provide Content, Coaching & Community to help you take your online business to the next level.
