I’ve been keeping my eye on the drip fed blogs since I first saw the Drip Fed Recipe Blog. I didn’t want the recipe blog, I was wishing for a self development blog instead, and I was absolutely delighted when Justin and Brad came up with the Drip Fed Self Help Blog.
I paid my $47, gave them my blog domain, and waited about a week for my blog to appear.
When it came I was pretty happy. I have a fully hosted blog with 365 days of posts already pre-loaded. These posts are set up to post automatically once a day. Each post has a link to Brad and Justin’s self help course, which pays $140 commission.
The posts are a mixture of videos and articles, and quite well written, with a mixture of common sense and Law of Attraction principles, and not too extreme for the general public.
The blog itself is on the Woo Canvas theme, which is very plain at first sight, but can be prettied up and formatted in any number of ways.
You can find a link to a Sample Blog on the sales page.
The posts have not been tagged, which looks like a drawback at first, but in the members back office they explain that tagging all the posts the same way would reduce their effectiveness with Google.
Yes, everyone else with Brad and Justin’s self help blog has the same articles… but they are all posted in a different order to help reduce the duplicate content issue, and they are not worded exactly alike.
The members area has helpful videos on all aspects of setting up your blog, and also training on how to promote, including free traffic strategies.
They also explain how to move the blog to your own hosting if you want to do that.
At this point I’ve had the blog 2 weeks, and have been really busy with other projects, but I’ve managed to personalize it, add an auto post to Twitter, and do some tagging. Now I’ve added Google Analytics, and it’s time to get some good backlinks.
Overall, I am very happy with the blog and I expect to make ClickBank commissions from the links already provided, as well as my own banners on the side. I like the fact that the theme starts off pretty plain, which means that I can personalize it my way, though it looks ok as is, too. Having a few of my own blogs and knowing how hard it can be to come up with content on a regular basis, I really appreciate the drip fed posts, and the quality is good. The blog loads reasonably quickly too.
I think the setup is ok for a newbie who has no WordPress experience, as the members area videos cover the basics, and Brad and Justin will fix your blog if you make a mess of it.
At this point, apart from one typo, I haven’t found anything that I don’t like.
Only time will tell if this blog earns me the commissions which it should, but that depends to a large degree on my own skill and effort in promoting it, as I would not depend solely on organic search engine traffic.
After I paid, I was given the option to buy the older drip fed blogs for a reduced price. It’s a steal if you have the cash.
