As I promised a couple days ago, I now have a review ready of Richard Lee's Blog Content Roadmap. If I was only given three letters in which to describe Richard Lee's product, I could only put it two ways: Wow! & Bam! This is just the ticket I was looking for. It's not often when you buy an info product that you can walk away in the end feeling excited and ready to apply what you've learned! In my experience, most info products make me feel short changed. Some products have even gone as far as causing my body to physically contort straight into an anti-gasm! Is that a word? Oh well.
Richard, this product is fantastic! It's worth well above your asking price of 50 bucks. There is absolutely no fluff in these videos. This is a straight up, get down to business pure meat & potatoes gold mine of information! The videos are very well articulated and Richard doesn't miss a beat.
The main video is called the Blog Content Roadmap video. The first subject in the video covers why we should post daily as opposed to occasionally or just a couple times a week. This is a topic that is debated quite often by some of the forum junkies. The reasons given by Richard for posting daily are spot on in my opinion. In fact they are undeniable! It's as simple as that. Richard lists quite a few reasons as well. some of which I never really considered before.
Next, Richard delves into the mechanics of writing. The first mechanic, getting down to writing your blog, points out something that you should absolutely NOT do! It also happens to be something that I've been guilty of in the first degree every day! At this early point, I already knew that I was on to something good! Other sections of writing mechanics includes a system for capturing ideas, creating an idea incubator and what he calls the "bullpen" where the best ideas are ready to be brought out. By this time I was already formulating ideas in my head for optimizing my blogging.
The next area covered is "The System". Richard Lee includes a .pdf file containing the same system that he uses himself for creating content on his blog. This is a nice addition. His system is mapped out so that you can adopt it directly to your own blog, or simply use it as a guide for creating your own system which is more tailored to your particular subject matter. In fact, the system is designed to encourage this.
In the next part of the video, he gives pointers on discovering your own formulas for creating great content for your blog. I was impressed with his methods for creating great content. Although creating great content is very good, it's not going to get you very far if you can't keep it going on a regular basis. This is where Richard Lee really delivers on an already great system. By the end of this video you have all the info you need to start blogging quality posts every day. Richard also maps out a challenge at the end. He has a task list mapped out for you to follow for each day for six days. If you take him up on the challenge and follow the list, I'm convinced that you will succeed. I'm going to take the challenge starting today. Simply repeat the steps in the system every week and you just can't lose. Don't just take my word for it. Stick around this blog and see if you don't see regular and (hopefully) quality posts every day!
As an added bonus, the roadmap is rounded off with another video which shows you a free tool that's available for getting ton's of content ideas sent directly to your email every day or once a week! What an obviously cool idea!
I'd like to offer some cons about the Blog Content Roadmap to give some balance to this review, but I honestly can't think of any. I'm a thoroughly satisfied customer. That's kinda strange, because I'm pretty good at identifying the flaws in a product. If Richard ever releases this into a physical product, I think it would be useful if the video's were also in a DVD format for more flexibility.
After viewing the videos, I can honestly say that I have a new sense of empowerment. I no longer feel that I'm a slave to starring at a white screen with a bad case of writer's block hoping that maybe tomorrow will be a better day.
If you're serious about taking your blog to the max, then you owe it to yourself and to your readers to get the Blog Content Roadmap today! By the way, there are no affiliate links in this post. My recommendation is based purely on the merits of the product itself. On what I've seen here, I have a feeling that I'm going to be a fan of Richard's products for a long time to come!
