I have a vision for this website. One day, JonLoomer.com will be a training portal of videos, eBooks, white papers, online services and other products. In my mind, the site will print money.
[Humor me. Just nod your head.]
But that day is not today. Any smart business goes in phases, and I consider the “printing money” phase to be Phase 3 (or possibly Phase 10).
The Goal of Phase 1: Write as much helpful content as possible and build a large, engaged audience. Create value.
You may be involved in Phase 2: Advertising.
The Goal of Phase 2
I’m looking to partner with companies and brands that I believe in; companies and brands that are already into Phase 3 territory and are making terrific products that I use every day.
In addition to Google AdSense (which I’d love to cut from my strategy one day), I have affiliate or referral relationships with the following brands and products:
- The Genesis Framework
- Amy Porterfield (More on this in a few weeks)
- Mari Smith (More on this in a few weeks)
These are all very natural fits. My website is built on The Genesis Framework. I use AWeber to power my email marketing. I use ShortStack to build Facebook tabs and run contests. I use AgoraPulse for community management and Facebook analytics.
Amy Porterfield and Mari Smith are big timers I respect in Facebook marketing who are at the stage I’d like to be one day. I’m more than happy to support their products before I develop my own.
As you can see, I don’t support anything I don’t believe in. These are all things or people I am close to, respect and am comfortable recommending to readers, customers, friends and family.
The Value of JonLoomer.com to Your Brand
As long as I’m in Phase 2, I’m always looking for new partners. That includes pure advertising relationships instead of affiliate or referral arrangements.
In other words, there is space on this website that is for rent. It’s not a small, one-bedroom apartment, mind you. We’re talking some prime real estate, my friend.
