  • Short Member Survey On Upcoming Workshops & Challenges

    Posted by David Risley on August 25, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    My friends,

    I’m planning out a new series of workshops as well as some Member Challenges to take place here in the LAB. And I’d like to make sure that I am tailoring things to what you guys would find most useful. So…

    If you could specifically have me prepare and deliver a workshop here in the LAB that would help you the most, what would it be about?

    And as for member challenges… the idea would be that we take some common goal and do it together for a series of days (or perhaps weeks). We go through it as a series of bite-sized videos, then do the actions in unison. Of course, with support and questions answered along the way. So…

    What goals or outcomes would you MOST value for future Member Challenges here inside THE LAB?

    You can just post your thoughts right here on this thread.

    If, for some reason, you want it to be private, you can send it via the Help Hotline form (top menu) and it’ll come right to me. 🙂

    Converting search engine traffic… I get a fair amount of search engine traffic. But even if I got 1/10th as much it would be helpful to look at converting people who might be looking for “an answer to a question” or the other things that we all do when searching. Exploring options, implementing some things that get incrementally better results, checklist for your top 10 pages from search, etc. ~Rick

    I would love to work through a challenge on converting people on my mailing list to becoming paid subscribers. And I feel it has to be a little different approach because this is not a coaching situation but desert container gardening. For all of us people out here serving people’s hobbies.

    Since I am a beginner I will suggest a beginner oriented challenge.


    Workshop could be on some creative designing guide for lead magnets, printables etc.

    Engaging your small audience for a new blogger with not much content(blog posts) to offer.

    Ways of Market reasearch for your offers for one to one talk, addressing challenges like when people or email list don’t talk to you etc.

    1. Paid Conversion challenge for small list of subscribers.

    2. 100(or n) email subscribers challenge with SEO or any free traffic source. (Free because it is easy to have 100 subscribers through paid advertising.)

    3. Blog post challenge(for beginners it is effective as we dont have a proper blog right now)

    4. Email list engagement challenge.

    5. Making n dollars challenge in k no of days.

    Also @David since you haven’t explored Pinterest as a traffic source, We all can explore it as a challenge also and make progress collectively by applying different strategies for traffic. Because many bloggers are harnessing the power of pinterest as a free traffic source since beginning when their blog was baby blog..

    I would like something on the tech side. Love how you build the course now. Would love to see how you create a course and intergrate LearnDash, Thrivecart, and WP Fusion into it.

    (I’m thinking of getting away from Membermouse and start using WP Fusion.)

    Hi David

    I would really appreciate a course on ConvertKit. A walk thru step by step as to how to set up -from the call to action opt in, email sequence etc.

    I know that there several mentions in various places within the lab-but a workshop would be very helpful.

    That’s going to be happening pretty soon. I just finished one on Aweber, so the next one up is going to be on ConvertKit. 🙂

    Thank you David. I’d like to know more about the mechanics of selling webinars. Does it cost money to store the data, what are the best programs to use to record and edit them. I was asked to teach writing classes on zoom, I have four classes completed, they were recorded and I have a bunch of files I don’t know what to do with. I have Thrive. I’ve been using Google slides. I have 6 more classes on the schedule to do, can you point me in the right direction. TY!

    I love the idea about working as a team to complete projects, that would be helpful.

    I’m not sure if this exists already (I’m new here, just starting to look around, overwhelmed in a good way by all the info!), but something like “how to make your first $50 blogging.” Just making that first wad of cash, even if it’s just $10! I’m looking at blogging specifically (not freelance services, been there and done that).

    What goals or outcomes would you MOST value for future Member Challenges here inside THE LAB?

    I think the above. Being able to walk away (even if it’s after 3 months, or whatever) and be like, wow, I’ve made $10. That would feel so concrete, hopeful, and promising.

    @david, I REALLY enjoyed watching you rebuild your RV blog earlier this year. Seeing the steps you were doing was not only a great inspiration, it also gave great ideas as to how to build out my business. I’d love to see you continue with that as it’s an awesome, real world case study. Cheers!

    Also, @david, I’d like to see a workshop on creating a LearnDash Course from when you first get an inspiration, all the way through to publishing it. This could include some sort of plan or wireframe, creation of a script of talking point outline, recording setup, the actual recording, post recoding editing, publishing and all the steps in LearnDash and then promotion.
