Patrick Mahomes, Youtube Mid-roll Ads, and Authority Site Giveaway

By Spencer Haws |

If you made $2,000 an hour, 24 hours a day, for the next 12 years…you would have made less than HALF what Patrick Mahomes is scheduled to make over the next 12 years. Holy Mahomies!

Largest sports contract ever signed yesterday at $503 million. I mean your website can technically be earning you money 24 hours a day, but Mahomes?! Wowza.

Authority Site Giveaway

How would you like a custom built authority site (in a niche of your choice)? You get 57,000 words of content and an additional 200 keyword plan for future content.

Oh and you'll also get 15 whitehat backlinks, ebook creation, opt-in forms set up, and more.

In exchange it will only cost you….$0.

You'll also get a shot at a free lifetime subscription of Link Whisper – which I personally think is pretty sweet.

Brand Builders just launched this contest where they are giving away all of this and more.

From Niche Pursuits guest to $10 million a year?

I'm 100% sure that Niche Pursuits is 0% of the reason that one of my former podcast guests is about to hit $10 million in revenue this year.

But I'd still like to give a shout out to my friend Matt Paulson and his business Matt just shared on his blog that his business is growing rapidly, monthly pageviews are topping 15 million, and revenue is expected to surpass $10 million this year.

You can check out Matt's quarterly update here.

Oh, and you can listen to the interview I did with Matt way back in 2014, before his business was even called Market Beat.

YouTube Like Them Ads…

If you are a YouTuber, you got an email yesterday from YouTube stating that they are now going to allow mid-roll ads on videos that are only 8 minutes long, instead of the previous 10 minute video requirement.

The reason isn't stated by YouTube, but it's obviously for the green reason. As in money.

More videos with more ads makes YouTube more money.

In this case, it will also make YouTubers more money too – as they can have more ads on shorter videos. Oh, and these mid-roll ads will be turned on by default!

So, as a YouTube viewer…beware. You are about to get slapped with an ad after about 4 minutes now on an 8 minute video…

Suddenly creators will start pumping out 8 minute videos instead of 10…

No Diggity

Matt Diggity just published a full webinar video on YouTube that is over an hour long. Matt is one of the top experts in the industry on link building strategies (also a previous Niche Pursuits podcast guest!).

In this training video he shows you 15 steps for vetting and auditing your backlinks. Are your links good or bad?

You can watch the entire Matt Diggity training video right here. (Just scroll down the page a bit to see it).

Overall, I hope your mid-week is more exciting than a mid-roll ad from YouTube. Good luck out there.

Thanks again,

Spencer Haws
