Good book, but have realistic expectations
on March 8, 2011
This is another good book by Bly. Keep in mind though, Bly has 30 years of experience, 80+ books published, and a loyal following of 60K+ followers. One doesn't build this type of reputation overnight. It takes time, experience, and expertise in a specific niche that evolves over time. If you have an infrastructure in place to exploit the tips Bly provides here, then yes, I do believe you can add significant income to your business using this book. If you don't however, you should realize that building a six figure supplementary income will take time as your loyal followers and infrastructure builds out. Bly estimates 12 - 24 months. I think that this depends on many factors, including: your time and ability to test ideas, you internet savvy and marketing smarts, the number of followers you have, your choice of material and audience pool (as Bly indicates), and more. Can you do it in two years or less? Perhaps. Can it take longer. Of course. My suggestion: buy the book, aim for the moon, but set expectations accordingly.
