Quick Summary, Soundbites et al.
Glen Allsopp is a genius.
He has built a 4000+ subscriber blog, PluginID, in less than a year, living the dream-nomadic “cloud” lifestyle, moving from city to city as he likes, writing about and living the life he wants.
…and he’s a good friend of mine. He helped me set up this site and he’s been into “internet business” for over 4 years, having worked for fortune 100 companies, he earns thousands of dollars per month… and he’s finally written a book.
Cloud Living is a step-by-step guide on how to set up a website, make it popular and earn money online.
It’s the easiest way to go from “i don’t know the first thing about making money online” to earning thousands of dollars on the internet, “the cloud” – doing what you love.
It’s 176 pages soaked in crazy detail with…
• loads of screenshots
• 6 tutorial videos
• a free template to get started immediately
• 2 detailed interviews with top bloggers
• full email support – glen will answer any question, no matter how stupid
…pretty much everything you need to become an internet superstar.
Two main sections are covered in insane detail – blogging and affiliate “mini-sites”.
step-by-step.. how to get a domain, set up a site, pick keywords and products, build links from scratch, make your site popular and make money online. And other fancy bonuses and online trickery too.
I know I sound biased. I am… but it’s because before glen put out an ebook, he helped me set up this site and answered some of the supidest questions alive. He knows his stuff, and he explains it really well.
And I’m proud to recommend this.
The Benefits of Being Biased
So… colourful sales pitch out the way, time to be fully honest. Here goes:
If you’re looking for an unbiased, detailed review of “Cloud Living”, then you’ve come to the wrong place.
…but, before you click away to read some half-baked, bullet-pointed kinda-review by a greasy online hustler, lemme give you some background.
Glen is, as I said, a really good personal friend of mine.
We’ve known each other for years and had some crazy adventures.
Okay okay. This is getting less credible as you read on. I know.
…but here’s the thing: you wouldn’t be reading this if it weren’t for the content within Cloud Living.
I spent nearly every day hanging out, partying and lording Cape Town with Glen when he was working for an internet marketing company here in South Africa last year.
…and the result of a whole lot of Sunday afternoon lunches and 3AM post-night-out chats, deep and personal developmentish in nature, combined with Glen’s supreme leader of the internet status – is Unleash Reality. Yip. The site you’re reading right now.
I could give you the details of Glen’s phenomenally successful internet business career (4 years running, working day and night, he’s worked for fortune 100 companies and has been featured on 10 of the top 100 blogs in the universe evar)
Or I could give a chapter outline and break down how Glen describes his 2 main online business models – blogging and “minisites” (affiliate sites).
But there’s no need. He gives all that “specific” info here.
I can tell you why you HAVE to read Glen’s book though…
Why You HAVE to Read Cloud Living
If you are at all interested in “Making Money Online”,
you have to read Cloud Living.
And I mean “have to”.
Here’s my reasoning…
If you’re a beginner at this whole “make money online” thing, then this book will save you literally days of reading time and frustration. You could flip burgers at McDonalds and make more money than the book’s price in the time you’ll save.
If you’re already making money online then you’ll really relate to and appreciate the statistics and deeper levels of Cloud Living while learning how to do things better – and if you’re legitimately making money online then those little bits that have taken Glen years to refine (he started internet marketing 4 years ago) will be worth a mere few sales worth of commissions that Cloud Living costs.
And if you’re an internet deity, making trillions online already, then you won’t have to pay. Just send Glen an email and he’ll fawn all over your internet celebrity aura and send you a copy for free. Guaranteed.
Memoir Deluxe – Free Bonus, Operators Standing By!!
…besides, Cloud Living, while it is a detailed, step by step guide on making money on the internet, it isn’t just a step by step guide on making money on the internet.
It’s also a memoir of sorts.
Okay. Honestly, that might be taking it a lil far.
But Glen does also tell you his story – which, though it’s in the context of internet business, will probably inspire you far more than anything else you’d spend the $37 on – he covers productivity and how he managed to work for multiple fortune 100 at the age of 18 – which is the main topic of his 4000+ subscriber blog, PluginID.
Wrapping Up: This Kind of Honesty Would Get Me Fired (if I had a boss)
End of the day, there’s probably one overarching question remaining in your mind.
“Is this anything new and do I need to buy it?”
…and, although Glen is really a great friend of mine, the simple answer is “no”.
You can find most of the information in this guide online for free.
But you won’t find anything like this.
You’ll find a whole lot of scattered, badly put together guides and bits and pieces that will take you hours and hours to sift through. Specially with the headache they’ll give you.
Nowhere else will you find such detailed, step by step instructions complete with screenshots and videos, full of veteran tips and insights where you can email a man who lives by his advice and get help on anything you need (as long as it’s internet related of course, you frikken weirdo)
Glen is real deal.
And we have the kind of friendship where if he put out something bad, I’d rip him off about it for years to come and tell him how much it sucks and how stupid he was.
But, even though I’d love to see the look on his face if I did that, in a joking way of course, I just couldn’t.
Because this book is super awesome.
Don’t take my word for it though, you can check out what other people are saying here.
