If you’ve been trying to “get your name out there,” publishing content on your website, and doing all the things “they” have told you to do… but you’re still not getting the kind of attention, respect, and income you desire… then you need to drop whatever it is you’re doing right now and read this letter from start to finish.
Most of the things you’ve been taught about how to build authority online are wrong, wrong, wrong.
And not just a little bit wrong… I’m talking DEAD WRONG.
Don’t believe me? Think I’m overstating my case?
Check this out…
According to a study published by blogging.org, a full 81% of bloggers never even make $100 from their blog.
I probably don’t have to tell you this, but $100 is nothing. You could make more money by collecting shopping carts at Costco for a day.
Think about it… A hundred measly bucks for all the blood, sweat, and tears you’ve poured into building your authority? That’s it?
Today, “blogging” and “writing a book” are almost synonymous with “building authority.”
You want authority in your niche? Write a blog! Write a book!
Thousands of people teach this advice and millions follow it. But rarely do the students get the results they expect.
This is because the traditional advice is missing critical pieces of the puzzle that will keep you struggling for years.
To build authority, dominate your niche, and start making tens of thousands of dollars a month, you must follow a very specific (yet simple) process.
This is the same process I’ve used to make $4 Million+ in sales and commissions. And I’m going to share this process with you.
Average that over a whole year and it’s just 33 cents a day. It’s practically an injustice. People in third world countries make more than that!
You deserve better.
You really do.
I tell you what, the fact that so many content creators are making basically nothing for their efforts makes me absolutely crazy.
Because if you understand how to become an expert… a recognized AUTHORITY in your niche… it’s EASY to make six figures a year just from your blog alone.
I’m not even talking about speaking gigs, consulting gigs, or all the other ways you can get paid once you become an authority. Add in all these other potential income sources and you could be making 7 FIGURES a year.
I’m not kidding.
In just a minute, I’ll tell you exactly what it was that turned my life around and catapulted me into the “online limelight.”
But first, I have to level with you… just a few years ago my life was unraveling at the seams…
In 2009, I Was Discouraged, Depressed, and in Foreclosure.
Then I Discovered a 3-Minute Secret that Helped Me Dominate My
Niche and Produced My First Million Dollars in Commissions…
Hi, my name is Ray Higdon.
Today, I’m a recognized expert in one of the most competitive niches on planet earth: the home business niche.
And within the last year or so, my expertise and influence has expanded beyond my niche and is now being recognized by major players in the online marketing world.
But just a few short years ago, I was a nobody.
In fact, I was LESS than a nobody. (Even now it’s hard for me to say that, but it’s 100% true.)
You see, back in 2009 I hit the lowest point in my life.
I had already FAILED at multiple home-based businesses.
I had FAILED in an advertising franchise that I’d purchased.
And my brief career in real estate investing was FAILING big time. I had bought a few real estate programs and over-leveraged myself… right at the top of the real estate market.
So when the financial crisis hit in 2008 and 2009, everything was falling apart around me. And I was in personal foreclosure.
In fact, during all of 2009 I made only… $19,000.
That is not a typo.
I literally made less than HALF the median household income in America that year… and was within arm’s reach of the poverty line.
Basically, that means I could not pay for the properties I owned and I was bleeding money every single month. I owed the banks more than a million dollars and they were coming after me… hard.
You want to know how bad it was? Listen… my girlfriend at the time (who is now my wife) was working at the cosmetics counter at Nordstrom’s just to help me pay my utility bill.
It Wasn’t Just Embarrassing…
It Was Downright Humiliating!
As you can imagine, I was depressed and discouraged and felt like giving up.
But in spite of how I was feeling, I didn’t quit. I got back up, dusted myself off, and I was more determined than ever to learn from my mistakes and turn all my failures into success.
And thanks to the discovery of my 3-Minute Expert formula, financial success came to me faster than I ever expected.
My business revenue quickly hit the six-figure mark… and then just kept on going. And in 2013 I had my first $1 million year ever.
Since then, my business’s revenues have continued to climb.
Do I want to impress you by sharing these numbers? Of course I do. If I told you anything else, I’d be lying.
But I also share my story with you to impress upon you two things:
1. It does not matter how often or how badly you’ve failed in the past. You can STILL become a recognized authority in your niche and finally live the life of your dreams.
2. The 3-Minute Expert formula that I’ve developed isn’t based on luck and it isn’t a fluke. It took my business from nothing to the 6-figure mark — and then beyond the 7-figure mark — in just 4 years. (Keep in mind, I didn’t even really know what I was doing in the beginning.)
The money is great, of course, but building authority isn’t just about the money. It’s also about…
…earning the respect of your family, friends and peers…
…proving all those people wrong who said you’d never make it…
…getting to meet and network with high-level players you never would have met otherwise (and earning their respect, too)…

…having qualified prospects seek you out instead of you chasing them…
…taking time off whenever you want for any reason or no reason at all…
…and traveling to exotic locales (sometimes even writing it all off as a tax expense).
In just a minute, I’m going to tell you more about the 3-Minute Expert and how you can start using it to build authority in your niche.
But first, I need to tell you about a common problem I see among bloggers and other people who are trying to build their authority online…
This is the #1 Most Common Mistake Among People
Who Are Trying to Build Their Authority Online
Lean in and listen up… people who are trying to build their authority online make all kinds of mistakes. I covered 8 of them in one of the free training videos I just released.
But the biggest problem of all is probably this one:
Creating content for PRAISE Instead of PROFIT.
All the time, people ask me, “Ray, do you know why I’m not making any money?”
It usually doesn’t take me long to figure it out. Many times, after looking at their website for a few minutes, I tell them, “It’s because you’re not asking people to buy stuff.”
Many people who create content get addicted to positive feedback and social sharing. Whenever they publish something, they want to see lots of comments and lots of shares.
Here’s the problem:
You can’t eat comments and shares. You can’t spend them either.
Whenever somebody starts overvaluing comments and shares, they stop asking for money. And guess what? When you stop asking for money… you don’t make any money.
In the end, you wind up with a happy community of non-buyers… a pleasant bunch of opinionated freebie seekers and spectators who will never pull out a credit card.
It might be good for your ego (maybe), but it’s absolutely horrible for your bank account.
So one of the things I teach my students is how to create monetized content that still gets comments and shares.
I realize that might sound impossible, but I promise you it’s not. My students and I are living testaments of that.
My flagship website makes $3,000 to $5,000 every single day of the week, Monday through Sunday… and that’s because I’m using my own formula for getting shares, engagement, AND profit… all at the same time.

Want to discover my secret for blending shareable content with effective monetization strategies? You do? Then you’ll want to get access to my brand new course, The 3-Minute Expert…
The 3-Minute Expert is my brand new video training program that teaches you how to establish your authority in ANY niche no matter how competitive it is… and turn that authority into a predictable stream of revenue of at least six-figures a year or more.
I’ve poured my heart and soul into this course so that you can begin applying it immediately and get almost instant results — even if nobody knows who you are right now and even if you’ve failed multiple times in your past (like me).
When you login for the first time (maybe just 5 or 10 minutes from now), you’ll discover all my best strategies and formulas for building authority and translating that authority into cold hard cash. Things like…
The Authority Multiplier
If you’ve already started a blog, and you’ve published some stuff, but you’re not having the kind of success you want, then you need to put The Authority Multiplier to work immediately. You will instantly start getting 10X the results you normally do… 10X the traffic, 10X the engagement, and 10X the revenue.
The Instant Fame Formula
Do you worry that nobody knows who you are? Or that nobody cares what you have to say? You do? Well, not to worry because, as I mentioned before, I was an absolute NOBODY when I first entered the home business niche. But thanks to the Instant Fame Formula, people immediately saw me as a person they should respect and listen to. And if this formula worked for me, then it can absolutely work for you, too.
The Niche Evaluator
One of the biggest questions people have is whether they’re in the right niche or not. I’ll teach you EXACTLY how to analyze a niche so you know whether it’s too small or too broad. Keep in mind, I entered one of the most competitive niches on the planet… and still made over a million bucks in a single year.
The Lifelong Lead Machine
If your business requires a steady stream of prospects and leads… and you’re tired of chasing people and prospecting… then you’re going to love this module. It’ll teach you how to build a “Lifelong Lead Machine” that gets qualified people to SEEK YOU OUT. Once you fire up this machine, it’ll be next to impossible to shut off the lead flow. Every week you’ll have new qualified people knocking down your door just to talk to you. Can you imagine how easy it will be to grow your revenue and commissions with people coming to you ready to buy?
The Idea Factory Method
Worried you have nothing to say… or that you’ll run out of ideas? This simple method will turn you into an “idea factory”… somebody who ALWAYS has something valuable and interesting to say… every single day of the week!
The Organic Traffic Tsunami
Struggling to get organic traffic? I’ll show you exactly how to pick the right keywords and where to post your articles so that Google starts sending you hundreds if not thousands of visitors a day. I’ll also show you how to write titles to maximize social media sharing. (And don’t worry… you can write for both Google and social media at the same time.)
The Blog Monetization Maximizer
One of the BIGGEST mistakes bloggers and entrepreneurs make is not monetizing their blogs effectively. This is why hardly anybody makes any money. If you want to join the 2% of bloggers who are making more than $150,000 a year, you need to study my Blog Monetization Maximizer as if your life depended on it. (Trust me, it’ll be more than worth it.)
The Audience Mind-Reading Trick
Discover exactly what you should talk about to engage your audience and make them hyper-responsive to everything you say (even if you tell them to buy something). This works even if you don’t think you have anything valuable to share!
The Magic P.S. Technique
Don’t be deceived by the simplicity of this powerful formula… I have a very specific way of writing a P.S. and this technique alone has literally generated hundreds of thousands of dollars in sales for my business.
The 7-Figure Blog Blueprint
As I mentioned earlier, I did my first $1 million year in 2013 and my online business has continued to grow rapidly since then. So this particular module will teach you how to go from 6 figures a year… to 7 figures a year. This is the same exact blueprint I’ve used in my own business. The best part: it’s simple, easy to follow, and works fast. All you have to do is follow the directions.
