***PERSONAL NOTE FROM NATHAN***

I am currently NOT creating new courses, but below you'll find all the information about every advanced training I've ever created - which are ALL available if you sign up today.

Because I'm not actively creating courses at the moment, I DO NOT expect you to join this program and remain a member forever. Join for as long as you want, go through the courses, then cancel when you've learned all you need to learn.

As a member, you can ALWAYS ask me questions about the materials - even later if needed. Ask anyone who's worked with me. I'm ALWAYS glad to help those who've gone through my courses. Sometimes even years later.

Okay that's it. Now for the sales pitch...

:)

What is "The Academy"?

It's the place for "next-level" training for members of The Content Marketing Lounge Academy.

This is held in The Academy "Library" an archive of 20+ hours of advanced training for content marketers, freelancers, and consultants.

As of August 1, the course library includes the following classes:

  • Client Acquisition 101
    • My full course on growing a freelancing/consulting business from $0 to $10,000/month
  • Facebook Groups for Marketers
    • A 5+ hour course on using Facebook groups to build marketing audiences (instead of trying to build email lists with FAR lower engagement numbers)
  • How to Write Better Content Faster (ongoing series)
    • Part 1: The Myth of 10,000 Hours (And a Story About Fighter Pilots)
    • Part 2: A Better Way to Create Personas and Avatars
    • More modules to be added soon!
  • Cold Email for Client Acquisition
    • Part 1: How to Find Great Prospects
    • Part 2: Finding Contacts
    • Part 3: What to Write in the Email
    • Part 4: The Portfolio
    • Bonus: Abass Sahrawi's Cold Email Example
  • Nathan's Interviewing Guide (for Creating Interview-based Content)
    • Part 1: Basic Principles
    • Part 2: A Real Example of One of My Interviews
  • The Business of Freelancing and Consulting
    • How to Set (or Raise) Your Prices as a Freelancer or Consultant
  • Content Strategy and Creation
    • Nathan's Rapid Blog-writing Templates (7 Formulas)
    • The Storyteller Blog-writing Formula
    • Checkov's Gun for Marketers
    • Headline Writing for Marketers
WHY BECOME A MEMBER?

So you can get better at what you do by connecting to people who are on the same path as you, and by accessing a growing library of information, tactics, and methods about:

  • Marketing
  • Your career
  • Freelancing
  • Business
  • Life in general
These are things that are essential in my work and in my life—and that no one taught me in school.

WHY SHOULD YOU LISTEN TO ME?

I don't claim to know everything about marketing. I'm certainly not a guru.

But I have been very successful.

I started freelancing in 2013 as a side hustle while working a corporate gig in marketing.

I did that for 2 full years, working nights and weekends to build my business.

When my freelancing grew to a point where it could support me, I quit my day job and struck out on my own.

It hasn't always been pretty. There were times when I needed to pay bills (for preschool, etc.) and I didn't know if the money would be there in time.

But, I always found a way made it work.

My content has also been extremely effective at driving traffic to my clients' website.

In other words, I'm not some guy who's read a few books and is now trying to sell you a course.

This is my life. This is what I do all day every day. And I'm good at it.

As a member of the Academy, you'll get access to all the lessons I've learned in my years as a journalist, corporate marketer, and freelancer.

That includes the lessons I'm learning right now as I continue to develop my skills in this field.

And, perhaps most importantly, you'll get access to me and many others who are traveling the same path as you are.

WHY $10 A MONTH?

I charge $1,000/month for personal coaching.

I charge $150/hour for my writing services.

Why in the world would I offer this program for $10 a month?

Because I know my audience.

And I want to make it as affordable as possible.

Other marketers?

They're focused on "business owners" — selling courses/masterminds for hundreds or thousands per month.

I have no problem with that.

But I wanted to do something different.

I wanted to offer something accessible to literally anyone with ambition to improve their skills, increase their income, and move their career/business forward.

Employee, student, brand new freelancer, grizzled veteran consultant... whoever you are, whatever position in life you find yourself...

The Content Marketing Lounge Academy is for you.

WHEN WILL I BE CHARGED?

Your access to Academy classes and workshops start immediately, but your credit card won't be charged until the first of the month.

Also, if you sign up today, the price for you will always be $10/month.

Because I will never raise prices on existing members.

READY TO BECOME A MEMBER?

The next step is simple.

Click the big orange "Become a Patron" button on this page.

As soon as you do, you'll unlock the invites to the classes, which will be delivered through Patreon's super-easy-to use membership system.

Welcome to the community! I look forward to getting to know you.

This amount of support will allow me to upgrade the equipment I'm currently using to create all our content.

My trusty MacBookAir has been amazing, but at some point, it's going to need a replacement. :)
