    Thank you for this amazing post! It reads like from a birds perspective on my own process. Actually i am in Phase 6. I went online on Aug 26 and yes, my channels grow slowly but steady everyday. I don’t have products now. The product which i bought from you was THE cornerstone to set up my mailing list campaign… Amazing insight stuff you share…! I wouldn’t be today where i am without you! Thanks!

    Thank you David. This is exactly what I need. My answer to your question about what stage I am at is that I am at the starting gate about to enter Stage 1. I’ve already made the newbie mistake of starting a WordPress based website and adding content without a plan. Now I’ll be able to do it right.

    Outstanding. I knew there was a reason I joined your course… your clarity of explaining things and making them simple. I like the fact you are going to realigning your course to this plan. Courses that lack a clear roadmap have always frustrated me in the past.

    Keep Rockin it David!

  • David,

    Thanks for an excellent post and infographic. I think I am about to go through stage 4 and establish my first paid traffic funnel. I’ll let you know how I get on.

    This is terrific and beautifully laid out. Prior to reading this I would have said I’m in stage 2. However I do think I have to do a bit more work in tightening up my avatar. This doc will serve as a great roadmap to building my online business.
