“Mattforney.com is the most visible and biggest hustle I have going on right now. In the past year, I’ve released no less than six books via the site (including this one), which combined with my other hustles nearly make me enough money to live on my own, without any kind of job.”
– Matt Forney, Confessions of an Online Hustler
Confessions of an Online Hustler is the only book I’ve ever read where the re-release was better than the original. Most “updated” books contain a new foreword and, if the author is feeling generous, a bonus chapter. This book is made up of almost entirely new content.
While the general layout is the same, almost every chapter has been completely altered. For example, while the original book was a little vague on some of Matt Forney’s money making endeavors, the new version delves into dollar amounts and page views. It’s less theory and more action.
One of the best aspects of the original Confessions of an Online Hustler was it’s practicality. While the advice wasn’t super flashy, it worked. In fact, I was actually able to implement the advice and double my readership in two weeks. Thanks to the book’s advice I also managed to make enough money that I was able to survive the school year without having to get a job.
If you’re interested in blogging, either for fun or profit, I highly encourage you to check out this book. It covers everything blog related, including:
- Becoming a better writer.
- Building an audience.
- Monetizing a website.
- Publishing an eBook.
- Dealing with trolls and stalkers.
If you own a website, or have any interest in starting one, I’d suggest checking out Confessions of an Online Hustler. It’s on sale this weekend and you can buy it here for half off the normal price. The special ends at midnight on Sunday, so you’ll want to act fast.
