Turning a Blog Post into a 6-Figure Business

In this episode of Noah Kagan Presents, we conclude our two-part series with copywriting extraordinaire, Neville Medhora.

In part one, Neville shared how he built his 6-figure copywriting business — and he dropped a ton of epic knowledge on the exact strategies you can use to grow your own business.

In part two, we dive deeper into Neville’s journey of growing a 6-figure business. Most entrepreneurs and business owners share just the tactics, but we wanted to share more.

You’ll hear as we get ultra-vulnerable with stories about ex-girlfriends (and the impact one terrible girlfriend had on Neville’s business), misconceptions about startups, and surviving the ups-and-downs of a friendship.

Some lessons learned in this episode:

  • How to embrace hard discussions and the need to make tough decisions.
  • The importance of self-awareness: Knowing where you’re good… and where you need help.
  • Avoiding energy-sucking vampires (inspired by a horrible ex-girlfriend of Neville).
  • How to keep learning even after college.
  • Where most people fail when it comes to selling digital products.
  • How Neville turned his first blog post into a six-figure copywriting empire.
  • The exact reason Tim Ferriss wouldn’t let me sleep on his couch.
  • Building a base of loyal fans who buy your products again (and again… and again…)
  • Living off of $40,000 per year in Sumo’s early days — and the misconception about “successful” startups.
  • Why arguments can be helpful (including how I resolved my big fight with Andrew Chen).

And tons more.

The Challenge: Who inspires you? I’m curious to hear. Let me know in the comments!

Hey Noah, GREAT podcast, but before I even finish it I want to tell you that YES, your OK dork blog has sold some product for you.
If it wasn’t for your free tutorials on OKdork I would have never got the Appsumo monthly 1k course!

One thing I’ve noticed about the crazy girlfriends was that it was some of the best sex I’ve had.

I’m Definitely a PC person. Cheers!

great stuff Noah! You and Neville are the best!

I also love talking funny!!! I thought the same thing, it was brilliant 😀

You have been writing okdork for 17 years and haven’t made any money?

I agree with YouTube being such a huge asset!

I think about this with online learning all the time! So: Concrete deadlines, social pressure and financial pressure

Interesting insights on the accreditations. Like Seth Godin’s Alt MBA.

Where did he hire his accountability coach? I know Noah has uses accountability partners for different aspects of his life as he discussed on the Tim Ferriss show.

Create community first and/or join community. “Would you do it for free for the next 5 years.”

App sumo – 4 years until 6 figures

What about how to write a pitch email?

I am a PC person… lol I actually bought a mac after you were on the TF show and were like “does anyone not use Mac….” but haven’t gotten around to using it in the last 2 years.

Thank you for the conversation! ?????????????????????????????????????
