Ryan Deiss – Authority ROI
If you want to be among those who make their living online you need to stand out. No longer is the “Blogger” attracting traffic or sales. The rules have changed and as Ryan puts it “Blogging is Broken” To survive today you can’t be a Blogger BUT you CAN be an Authority!! Good news is being a recognized authority in your niche gets a type of respect that translates into sales, more subscribers, and a better bottom line (up to 8 times more profitable than the current style of blogging being taught by others)
Inside the members area there are 6 core modules plus the other stuff.
The six modules are:
Module 1: Gut Check
Module 2: Establishing Your Brand
Module 3: Building Your Authority Site
Module 4: Establishing Your Content Strategy
Module 5: Monetizing Your Authority
Module 6: Scaling Your Media Empire
Inside each of the modules are several training sub-modules. There are hundreds of hours of videos, audios, and pdfs to read and learn.
It is well structured for step-by-step instruction with plenty of reference and resources.
Module 1: Gut Check
Finding sustainable markets for your authority sites – without it, you’ll just be rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
However, intense data mining isn’t necessarily the best place to start either.
Ryan will explain some very simple ways to determine if your site idea holds water. Following his guidelines, I could probably say Yay or Nay to any specific idea within minutes.
If you are stuck for ideas, Ryan has resources to help you get going.
Module 2: Establishing your Brand
Learn to distinguish between your “market” and your “topic”.
Your market is about the “who, and your topic is about the “what”.
Your topic can shift overtime, but your market is your business constant.
Interesting discussion on selecting Personal, Corporate, or Product-Centric brand.
Which one yields more rapid growth? Which one is the most limiting?
Establishing personality and brand voice: this is something I see many bloggers fail at.
Distinguishing themselves from their competition.
Is your brand going to be serious or snarky? Is the glass half empty or half full? Will your language be formal or friendly?
Ryan has an awesome way to find the right voice that matches your personality and your market; wish I would’ve thought about it!
More: choosing the right domain name, creating your elevator pitch, etc.
Module 3: Building your authority site
Module 3 transitions us from the foundation work to the hands-on part, where we get to actually pour our grand ideas into our future authority site.

Who is Ryan Deiss?It’s very likely you are aware of who Ryan Deiss is, so I wont waste too much of your time on that, but just a brief overview…
He has made millions of dollars online, but is yet to be determined whether this has been made outside of the Internet Marketing space.
He formed alliance with another 10 (approx) gurus and has been in their product launch syndicate ever since. You know, the Gurus, Jeff Johnson, Frank Kern, Eben Pagan, and so on.
I have been an internet marketer for over 3 years now so I have seen most of their million dollar product launches over the years.
Even though many “Gurus” have got a bad rap, those I mentioned above actually are legitimate teachers. Although often they do teach more theory than practical application.
One thing I have found with Ryan’s course is they do go into detail and provide cutting edge information.
You can learn a lot from him, but more important learn more of what they “do” and then you can duplicate it in your own niche.
There are many Guru’s out there who sell a load of BS products and push button software.
However, Ryan Deiss fortunately doesn’t seem to associate with these people.
I also think he has the capital (money) to create a high quality branded product with his team of staff, with cutting edge graphics, audio and he also a good speaker. This is important because it keeps you engaged with the message, and also entertained, whilst you learn. This is important, but not as important as the “content” and the “strategies” that are being taught.
