‘Dude I Hate My Job’ is quite simply a course which outlines how to market yourself and create your own online presence.
By marketing yourself, I mean using your real name and by having your name as a domain name as well.
This is a good idea, however it is flawed especially when someone else has the same name and has already beaten you to it. But don’t let that put you off!
This can be remedied if you have a middle name because adding an initial would overcome the problem. In addition, using nicknames would also work.
The basis of any form of online marketing is to create your own online presence (this is a must), because without it you will not make any money at all.
That is why the whole ‘Dude I Hate My Job’ course method works because it is all about branding yourself and your passion.
By passion I mean what ever it is you are interested in whether this is a hobby, something you do for a living, or maybe just an idea that you have and want to expand on further.
Passion is something that we all have, but the problem for the majority of us is that we don’t know how to take this to the next level.
Uploading images of yourself onto online photo sites, uploading video’s to Youtube, using social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter – these are all forms of ‘self-branding’, and play a big part in your potential success online.
What you are also going to be learning is about being a leader of a tribe, with the tribe being your readers on your blog and followers on social network sites.
Here’s a more detailed breakdown of what you will be learning with ‘Dude I Hate My Job’…
- Show you how to identify your passion and know it’s right.
- Give you ideas and help you “name” your personal brand.
- Choose which way you want to go…video, audio or written.
- Help you start up your first blog in less than 10 minutes (Easy).
- Show you how to distribute your content all over the web.
- Bring together a community with the same passions as you.
- Use social tools to explode your brand to the world.
- Start reaching out to advertisers and begin monetizing!
Let me just give you a quick example of how to identify your passion, and this is actually taken from the second video and really does highlight the importance of asking yourself some very easy questions.
What do you love to do?
What do you mostly watch on television?
When you are bored, what do you end up mostly doing?
What do you talk to your friends about a lot?
When you are on the Internet, do you ever find yourself browsing a certain topic for hours without noticing?
I do like this course and I have only covered the first two videos and skimmed at that. I just would not have room to write about everything in these two videos, they really cover a lot of information, so much in fact that I would advise you watch them a second time before moving on.
This is one very well put together course and I don’t come across too many of them these days that go into depth to fully explain each and every part. It explains a tried and tested way to make money online, and from what I have seen it does a great job!
