Want More Traffic, More Clients and More Money?

Then you need to become a regular contributor to The McMethod today.

If you’d like to get more traffic, more clients and make more money, this page is for you.

I’m looking for 2 things –

  • Regular guest post contributors for The McMethod (4 monthly spots available – take one spot, or take them all for yourself)
  • Regular podcast host (that is, someone to take my place on The McMethod podcast, conduct interviews, edit them, and post them).

In exchange for writing blog posts for The McMethod (or running the podcast), you’ll get a number of interesting benefits:

  • You’ll get traffic to your website (both the blog and podcast attract thousands of monthly visitors who want to learn more about email marketing, email copywriting and sales funnels).
  • You’ll get high quality leads (many of The McMethod’s visitors are looking for either a copywriter to write their copy, or products to teach them how to do it themselves – if you serve this market, you will generate leads, and therefore customers).
  • You’ll make more money (more traffic and more leads means more customers and clients for you).
  • You’ll build your brand (instead of starting from scratch on your own website, leverage the existing audience of The McMethod to build your brand and authority).
  • You’ll be able to say “As Seen On The McMethod” (and include the logo on your website)
  • You’ll have TWO links to your website and/or landing page in every post (one at the top – that says something like “Joe Smith from XYZ.com helps X do Y even if Z” – and a longer one at the bottom – the AUTHOR BOX – where you explain more about yourself, your offer and provide a strong call to action).
  • You’ll be able to say you work for The McMethod and we can work out a title to add to your LinkedIn profile if that’s your thing (I like the title “Partner”, because it’ll make you look good, but we can use “Content Specialist” or something else if you prefer.)
  • You’ll get a KILLER testimonial and reference from me that you can use on your resume or website and to land new clients (provided you do an excellent job).

Finally (and perhaps the best part)…

I’ll make myself available for any questions you have regarding your own marketing and positioning.

Think of it as free coaching.

Bounce ideas off me. Get website feedback from me. Run copy by me. Ask me how to close that deal you’ve been working on (or how to double your fees).

Since we’ll be working together closely, I want to make sure that you get as many leads, clients and customers out of this as possible.

Who is this opportunity for?

This opportunity is ideal for copywriters and marketers who know how to write great copy, but struggle to attract attention and get clients.

I’m open to working with beginners if you can demonstrate ability to write a good post or create a good podcast, however, this opportunity is more suited to someone in the intermediate-to-advanced stage who has the experience and know-how to write a valuable post for readers and subscribers of The McMethod.

Before I tell you how to apply, please read over the following requirements carefully.

Requirements for regular guest post contributors

I’m looking for someone who can generate content ideas, write blog posts, edit them, add images, and finally, post them to The McMethod blog. Start-to-finish.

  • You can write posts related to one or several of the following topics (my preference is for someone with the experience and ability to write about freelance copywriting):
    • freelance copywriting (main topic)
      • ​how to write great copy
      • how to write great emails
      • how to get clients
    • copywriting
    • email marketing
    • sales funnels
    • personal development
      • how to develop a killer mindset
  • You generate your own content ideas based on my rough guidelines and don’t need me to tell you what to do.
  • You write blog posts that invoke an “OMG THAT WAS AWESOME” response. The sort of content that people share on social media and bookmark to refer back to. It can be actionable (ie. “How to do X”) or conceptual (ie. “How to use systems thinking to improve your results in life”). For example:
  • You can write at least 1-2,000 words per post (though I’m more interested in the value of the post than in the specific word count).
  • Your posts don’t need to be as long as my Shopify and Digital Marketer posts (7,000 and 14,000 words respectively), but they need to be well-researched, well-written, and well-presented.
  • You’re willing to commit to at least 1 post a month (I’m looking for 4 posts a month – from several people, or hey, someone who wants to monopolise the traffic and write 4 posts a month to promote themselves).
  • You’re able to set a deadline and stick to it (you’ll need to complete your post by a specific date each month, chosen by you – not simply whenever you feel like it).
  • In addition to writing your post, you can edit it, add suitable images, format it for WordPress, post it live, and finally, write a short email so I can email the list about it.

Requirements for the new podcast host

I’m looking for someone who can generate content ideas, find guests (or record interesting solo podcasts), edit them, add images, and finally, post them to The McMethod blog. Start-to-finish.

  • You’re a good talker and conversationalist (You know how to talk to people, empathise, create banter, find good topics to talk about, and so on).
  • You’re a thinker (One of the things that makes The McMethod Email Marketing Podcast different to other podcasts is my tendency to think about things in a new way, to challenge the conventional wisdom, and to push people to go deep. You need to know how to do that.)
  • You have experience interviewing people (You’ve done this before, and you’re not scared to get on the phone with a “famous” marketing or copywriting guru).
  • You generate your own content ideas based on my rough guidelines and don’t need me to tell you what to do.
  • You can find your own guests, or come up with your own topics for solo podcasts (which I will review before posting).
  • In addition to recording the podcast, you also write the show notes, publish each podcast, and then provide me with an email to send to the list about it.
  • You’re willing to commit to this for the long term (assuming you’re happy with the leads you’re getting from it).

Podcast run-time can be anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes. I’m more interested in high quality podcasts than the exact run-time. If you can create an amazing podcast episode in under 20 minutes that blows someone away, then 20 minutes is fine.

You need to be in it for the long-term

Whether you want to write for The McMethod or run the podcast, you need to be in it for the long-term.

I’m looking for a long-term relationship, so we can get to know each other, figure out how we work best together, and develop a strong bond of trust.

While the requirements listed above are necessary at this stage, I’d like to find someone I can trust to do a fantastic job without me breathing down their neck all the time. I hate micro-managing people. I’d rather empower you so you can let your own light shine.

Now, let’s say you’re interested and you’re happy with the guidelines, maybe you’re wondering…

What’s the catch?

The only catch is that I won’t be paying you (though given the fact that you’ll generate leads and therefore customers from this, you’ll probably make more money over time than you would if you only focused on your own website).

How to apply

If you’re interested in writing at least one guest post a month for The McMethod (within the above guidelines), use the form below to write me a SHORT message (less than 100 words) about why you’re a good fit for the position, and THREE links to articles you’ve written in the past (it can be a post on your site or a guest post on another site).

If you’re interested in hosting The McMethod Email Marketing Podcast, use the form below to write me a SHORT message (less than 100 words) about why you’re a good fit for the position, THREE links to previous podcasts you’ve done (so I can see how you flow live), and a 1-minute video where you introduce yourself (upload the video to YouTube, set it as “Unlisted” and give me the link).

If you’re interested in both, follow both sets of instructions.

One last thing:

Failure to follow the instructions perfectly will eliminate you from the opportunity.

If we’re going to be working closely together, I need to know that you can follow instructions and pay attention to the little details.
