Six Effective Tips You Need To Know To Become A Well Known Authority
Becoming a well known authority is a great way to make extra income or have it be the primary source of your income. When you are an expert in any niche you get to set the prices you charge and people start coming to you so you don’t have to actively advertise and work to acquire new clients. Look at Jon Benson as an example. He is the king of VSL (Video Sales Letters) and he charges $100,000 sometimes to make ad material for companies.

A lot of people think they have to be smart to be an authority. People will try to impress others with their knowledge, when most people couldn’t care less about how smart you are.
