    I have a short announcement to share with today – and this is ONLY available through Sunday, so time is of the essence here!
    I just released a brand new product called CreatorHQ – and it’s a comprehensive Notion workspace for creators. It’s literally the Notion workspace I built for myself – templatized – and available for YOU to use too.

    Richard van der Blom – How the man behind the LinkedIn Algorithm Report uses LinkedIn.

    Richard van der Blom – How the man behind the LinkedIn Algorithm Report uses LinkedIn.

    Richard van der Blom is the founder of Just Connecting, a social selling and LinkedIn training consultancy based in the Netherlands. And with nearly 200,000 followers on LinkedIn, he's one of the most respected voices on the platform.
    Richard was really early to LinkedIn. And as his own reach grew, he started getting a lot of questions about how to best use the platform.
    5 years ago, Richard started creating an annual LinkedIn algorithm insights research report. This thing is a gold mine of data driven observations about how different aspects of LinkedIn are working and even how they are trending compared to the year before.
    In this episode you'll learn

    Why LinkedIn reach may be down

    What formats are most effective right now

    How to use LinkedIn as a lead generation

    And you'll get a feature by feature breakdown of how Richard himself uses LinkedIn

    Michael Stelzner – How to run profitable events (without sponsors or selling from the stage)

    Michael Stelzner – How to run profitable events (without sponsors or selling from the stage)

    Michael Stelzner is the founder of Social Media Examiner and the man behind Social Media Marketing World, the industry's largest conference.
    He takes a very different approach to events. Before talking with Michael, I was told that events are not profitable from ticket sales, that you had to design events to make money during the event itself by selling products or bringing in sponsors.
    But he disagrees.
    In this episode you'll learn

    The nitty gritty of the economics behind events

    Where things get expensive

    How to save money

    And how to make your event feel more like a fine dining experience than a marketplace

    Listener Q&A (Part 2) – Selling without feeling salesy, choosing what products to create, my future plans, and more.

    Listener Q&A (Part 2) – Selling without feeling salesy, choosing what products to create, my future plans, and more.

    For this audio episode, we are going to dive into questions that I got from the lab, from Instagram, from LinkedIn, Twitter, and threads.
    Now this is actually a part 2. The first half of these questions I recorded in video format with my producer, Connor. We took a lot of the questions from YouTube and about YouTube and we prioritize those for a video episode on the channel.
    But before we get into that, I have a couple of things that I want to tell you. Thing #1, if you are not already subscribed to the Creator Science newsletter, please do so. You will like it. Almost 60,000 creators subscribed to it already.
    Thing #2, I've spent the last couple of months building a new product called Creator HQ. And this is a templatized version of my personal Notion setup that is how we run the entire creator science business. It's what we use for task management, content preparation, content publishing, content repurposing, and much more.

    Amy Porterfield – Her step-by-step process for MASSIVE product launches.

    Amy Porterfield – Her step-by-step process for MASSIVE product launches.

    Amy Porterfield is an online marketing expert and the creator of a multimillion dollar education business. Now you may know Amy from her top ranked marketing podcast called Online Marketing Made Easy or her new best selling book, Two Weeks Notice.
    She is a legend after all. Amy quit her job in 2009 and started out on her own. In 2011, she launched her first course, but despite her background and experience, that course was a total flop earning just $26. She tried again in 2012, and this time, she earned $30,000 from her course launch. Then in 2013, she launched her podcast and really hit her stride. In 2013, Amy posted $915,000 in revenue.
    Amy has now built an online marketing machine. With 22 employees and millions of dollars in revenue each year, Amy has really nailed both evergreen sales and course launches. Her launch formula leverages the use of webinars.
    In this episode you'll learn

    The specific step by step strategy that Amy uses for her course launches

    How she builds her email list during the launch period

    How to be more successful in selling through those webinars even when you're sitting in the sale part of it

    And if you stick around towards the end, we even dig into how she's thought about building her team

R. Frojo ,

Best host in podcasting

This review is long overdue. I’ve been listening to Jay’s show for well over two years, and not once has it disappointed. There’s so many things to love about Jay and his show. Every episode, no matter the guest or the topic, gives you insights and tactical tips on how to be a more successful creator—even if the topic isn’t relevant to you or your business. And it’s all because Jay is a master of asking the right questions. In every episode, he’s generous, curious and kind. He goes deep and digs out the good stuff. I’ve loved the feeling of growing alongside Jay in his creator journey.

Jay asks great questions that you’re hoping he’ll ask. Every minute is packed with value for the listener. Lots of actionable tips and different perspectives - I always come away with new ideas.

Jay Melone ,
