Put A Trusted Expert Advisor On Your Team - Available To Answer All Your Burning Questions Whenever You Get Stuck. 

Planning, Supervision and Accountability... One On One.

Sometimes, our biggest barrier to success is ourselves.

Having an experienced outside perspective can put you over the edge.

Look, we all get stuck sometimes. Despite having access to training, sometimes there are those specific questions that you just have a hard time answering. Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what the exact right move is in your particular case.

It can wear on you after awhile. You start to lose your mojo. You get frustrated.

But, what if you had an expert in your pocket? What if you had direct access to somebody with over 20 years of experience in blogging, online marketing, membership sites and even the technical stuff?

And... what if this expert didn't just answer questions you ask, but also helped you plan, gave you feedback, tracked along with you and provided some accountability so that you don't lose track of your goals?

Sometimes, we need more accountability... and something more proactive. Somebody to keep our eye on the target.

This universe is designed to work in pairs. For energy to flow, two terminals are necessary. You just look at the basics of electronics to see that is true. But, we can look even in human relations and we see it is true as well. We can only do so much when we're alone. When we're in partnership with another, the energy flows.

Building and growing an online business is a pretty big project. It is tough enough as it is, but it is made much harder when you're going it alone. Putting another on your "team" can make all the difference.

It can mean:

  • Have a second set of eyes to see things from a perspective other than your own
  • Have somebody to hold you accountable
  • Have somebody to proactively reach out and keep you on track
  • Have somebody help you determine what's really important and what to work on
  • Have somebody to help debug problems that come up so that you can keep moving.

As you are working to grow your business, you might have a question about your offer, your landing page, your branding, ads, website, funnels, lead magnets, your blog posts, the emails being sent to your list, your SEO, membership site, platforms, your traffic strategy.... ok, you get the idea. :) Any number of things could come up and you could use some quick feedback or advice on how to press forward and make things happen a helluva lot faster.

Regardless of what it is, you ask... and I'll reply with a real, personal answer within a day. It is like having me in your hip pocket.

And I call this Platinum Coaching. Cute, huh? ;-)

PLATINUM COACHING is a monthly coaching and support program for bloggers, course creators, coaches, consultants and any other online entrepreneur who is looking to make progress faster.

This is for YOU if...

  • You need help prioritizing your actions and not losing sight of the big picture...
  • You need help putting all the moving parts together into something that works...
  • You need somebody to help brainstorm ideas with and bounce your ideas around...
  • You're looking for a voice of reason to keep things on track and tell it to you straight...
  • You're ready to stop being totally alone with your business plans and finally have somebody to provide a second set of eyes on YOUR business...

Here's How It Works...

We use some custom-built systems to manage PLATINUM in a way which is much more scalable... therefore allowing us to make it much more accessible (cost-wise) than the typical coaching program.

Through a combination of personal touch and automation - and some in-house developed processes in order to provide concrete guidance and ongoing supervision, PLATINUM clients are able to receive the benefits of coaching without the massive investment typical of most others.

  • Unlock the PLATINUM Coaching Portal (our web-based portal for all coaching interaction)
  • Personal goal setting and accountability
  • A personalized online business program, written by David, available inside your portal
  • Monthly personal check-ins and status reports
  • Ongoing personal email support, direct from David.
  • Ongoing supervision based on real numbers (and predictable systems to respond to each situation)
  • Ability to get direct, personal assistance with any online business matter - anytime
  • Red carpet access to attend any LAB BootCAMP live event - no additional ticket required
  • Initial 60-minute discovery call to kick things off

What You'll Get As a PLATINUM Client:

The PLATINUM Coaching Portal

You will gain access to a special area of the LAB in order to manage all of our personal interactions - just between you and me. This web-based portal was built solely for PLATINUM clients.

Personalized Online Business Game Plan

After our initial consultation, I will prepare a full game plan on your best, most efficient path forward for your business. It will take into account your personal situation and where you want to take it. This program will be written and posted into your Coaching Portal so you can access it 24/7. As we work together, we will keep this plan updated to reflect your current situation.

Personal Accountability (And Tracking)

Once per month (at least), you will be asked to submit a status report to let me know exactly where things stand and any issues you are experiencing. I can then make adjustments to your program and specific recommendations to keep up your momentum. Together, we will also monitor certain core metrics of your business so that we can manage by the numbers. We've got certain, specific formulas to apply depending on your statistical trends... almost guaranteeing your growth.

On-Demand Coaching Support

Any time there is a difficulty, a speed bump or a confusion, I am an email away. You will have access to a personal, private email support box just between you and me. When you need help... just ask. As a PLATINUM client, you are never left alone to figure it out all by yourself.

Access To Every Single Live, In-Person BootCAMP Event

Any time you want to come spend a couple days working with me personally in a small group setting, you are invited to attend any of our scheduled LAB BootCAMP events. While others will need to purchase tickets, you have red carpet access to every single one.

Here's What This Will Mean For You...

"Coaching" is quite the buzzword these days. And there are way too many people out there offering coaching who really have no business doing so.

I've heard my share of horror stories about some "coaches". Some of them put sky-high prices out there, then sort of disappear once the sale has been made. You've got some coaches who will tell you things they read in some blog post somewhere, but they've never actually done it. Sometimes, the advice is outright bad.

I have one Platinum client who hired a coach who steered her in the totally wrong direction. They took a business which was expanding at roughly 10% per year and changed up everything. The result? A business where the income dropped about 40%! All because they violated just basic management skills.

When you work with me, you will get:

  • My expert advice. Look, I'm not one to proclaim "guru" status here. I hate that. But, truth is, there is a pretty darn good chance that any challenges you're facing right now, I've probably already solved it or helped a client do so before. I've been at this for 2 decades now.
  • Trusted, No-BS Guidance. I'm not going to try to jam you down a path which isn't right for you. Whether you are wondering what tools to use, what training you need, or anything else... you can count on me to tell it to you straight. I consider myself your advocate.
  • REAL Answers. I'm not here to parrot off generic advice you could easily find on Google. My job is to listen to your situation and give you real, tailored advice specific to your business.
  • Actual Management. I like to think in terms of systems. And I like to track and manage by numbers. Based on what those numbers say, I have formulas for what we do. I bring an actual business mindset to our work together. 
  • Fast, Personal Help. Optionally, you will be able to have faster response from me via live chat. Get answers faster... without having to wait 24 hours.

RED CARPET ACCESS FOR ALL PLATINUM CLIENTS

Get out from behind your computer and come meet with David (and family) and other like-minded members - and we'll have a live, in-person training and co-working BootCAMP.

We'll convene in a nice, relaxed RV park or campground. You can stay nearby in a hotel and drive in... or even bring your RV. And together, we're going to get some work done. You'll walk out with real, tangible goals accomplished and a concrete plan of action.

I'll do some live, tactical walkthrough training and I'll be there to help you and support you - right there in person. We'll spend 1 or 2 days together, working on your online business in a small group and enjoying a relaxed atmosphere. No large crowds and big conference centers. Much more intimate, hands on, and relaxed.

And after a productive day, we can hang around the campfire.

This is a brand new initiative for the Blog Marketing Academy. Details forthcoming.

  • Tight networking with other members. Sharing ideas, getting instant feedback
  • A relaxed, friendly environment which celebrates why we run businesses like this.
  • Direct, personal help. Right there in person.
  • Walk out with tangible progress made, not just notes

As A PLATINUM member, you will be able to attend any BootCAMP without having to buy a ticket. You would pay an enrollment fee to reserve a spot, then we would refund it back to you when you show up (or apply it to your account).

What's The "Catch"?

At this pretty low rate for individual coaching, I have to put some limits in place.

My workdays are usually Mon-Fri... 9AM-5PM. Usually, I will attend to all new Platinum support tickets first thing in the morning. This means I will answer you on those days, usually in the morning.

My family and our ability to travel and go camping in the RV is important to me, so be aware that there will be interruptions to my usual schedule from time to time. While I do my best to keep up with Platinum during those times, you need to be understanding.

I ask that you keep your interactions as concise and on topic as possible. I don't expect you to be a robot or anything, but that's the best way to get the most done as efficiently as possible. Please try to limit your interactions to one email per day. I'm not going to hold you to a strict limit or anything, but let's be clear... if you're going to blow up my inbox with 20-30 emails per day, you're going to need to go into a private consulting package. 

If you abuse my time or show disrespect for my time, I will kick you out with no refund.

One final thing is that Platinum isn't really the right fit for you if you have no niche yet, nothing for sale, etc. If you're in the very beginning phases of your business, that's OK as long as you can make decisions and take action. Honestly, tho, if you're in that phase, THE LAB is a better fit for you and once you have the foundational stuff figured out, you and I can work together more effectively.

OK, so that's all the yucky stuff. But, here's a question for you...

What's The Value Of An Answer?

  • Maybe You Find An Overlooked Opportunity. Sometimes, the best ideas are sitting there right under our noses and we don't see them. All the reading, all the videos, all the shiny objects distract you and you lose sight of what might be sitting right there.
  • It could save you money. I've had clients ask me about expensive tools they were considering. I look and give them a better alternative without all the cost. 
  • It could save you a TON of time. It is all too easy to spin your wheels and waste time. It could be working on the wrong thing, spending time trying to figure out how to do something, researching tools... or even just losing track. And time is money. Even if you don't think your time is worth anything (not correct), there's still the lost time that you could be making real headway but instead were going sideways.
  • It could MAKE you money. One simple email with a piece of feedback on a landing page or a strategy to implement could increase your conversions. A lot of times, it is the simple things that can have the most impact. 
  • Get a fresh perspective. It's easy to follow a template or some system some guru taught as some kind of catch-all strategy. But, without the benefit of hindsight, sometimes you don't know if it actually applies to you. Every situation is different... and that's something that you see with experience.

Here's How To Get Started

No big, long sales letter necessary here. No funny price structures or heavy-handed sales tactics.

You have TWO options. Which is right for you depends on the degree of support you want as well as your budget.

Option #1: EMAIL COACHING

Your most affordable coaching option is our email-based option. You will get everything described above. After our initial Discovery call to kick things off, we will proceed via email. You will be interacting with me one-on-one inside our private coaching portal.

There are no contracts. You can cancel anytime.

Your first month will be $199, then just $97 per month. Your rate will be locked in.

For an even better rate as well as to keep our steady progress on a roll, you can lock it in for a full year for just $999 (effectively, $83.25/month). Annual plans will not auto-renew.

Option #2: EMAIL + CHAT + PHONE COACHING

This is best for you if you want more real-time interaction to go along with our ongoing email interaction. With this option, in addition to our unlimited email coaching and everything described previously, you will ALSO have:

  • Ability to begin live chats with me inside your Coaching Portal.
  • One 60-minute call with me every month (or, optionally, we can split it into a 30-minute call every 2 weeks).

There are no contracts. You can cancel anytime.

Your rate will be $250 per month. You can also lock it in for a full year for $2,500 (saving you $500). The one-year option will not auto-renew automatically.

OK, that's it. The ball is in your park here.

You know it when you are running up against the "go it alone" wall. Eventually, it becomes pretty obvious that you could really use some insight so that you're not left alone to your thoughts and your own ideas. You know you have blind spots, but you don't even know what they are.

That's what Platinum Coaching is all about.

Whatever you decide, good luck with your business and I wish you the best of success with it.

Have Questions? Need More Help Deciding?

Is there a money-back guarantee?

If, for some reason, I determine that you are not a good fit for Platinum, then I will refund every penny. Likewise, after you and I have our Discovery Call together, if you don't think we we're the right fit, you have 24 hours to let me know and I will refund your money. After that, there are no refunds.

Does Platinum include the benefits of THE LAB?

No. THE LAB is our educational and community portal. PLATINUM is for working with me personally. You will log into THE LAB to access your coaching portal, however the 2 programs are separate. You can be both a LAB member and PLATINUM client at the same time, if you wish.

How fast is your turn-around time?

Usually within 24 hours. Sometimes faster. I check and reply to the Platinum tickets every weekday first thing in the morning. If you need faster turnaround, then I recommend you join the full coaching option so you can start live chat tickets with me.

How is this different than booking one-time calls with you?

All LAB members have the ability to book a call with me for $99 - or $150 if you're not a LAB member. And I've had several members simply book regular calls with me that way. And that's fine. The main difference is that I do no preparation for those calls. I don't bother to keep records. As a PLATINUM client, I keep a profile. I help plan your business. I follow up with you. This means we can make progress on a long-term basis without you having to repeat yourself. Also, if you're on the Email+Chat+Phone option, you will have access to me via live chat sessions.

What if I need a higher level of support than this?

PLATINUM doesn't mean I'm going to do the work for you. It is still up to you to ultimately execute the plans we come up with. If you need some of the stuff to simply be done FOR you, then you may want to look into my private consulting packages. With those, I take a more direct role in your business and my team and I can actually help you build your business directly.

What if I have other questions?

That's fine. If you want to chat with me about it just to make sure this is right for you, you can set up a quick, 15-minute chat with me. Or, you can just hit that blue button in the lower corner and ask away.
