Finally Revealing My New Site…It’s Probably Not What You’re Expecting

I’m very excited to finally be able to launch and reveal my new site today.

Before I do, let me just say: Even though this site will be a significant project and require a ton of effort, it absolutely will not take the place of this blog here at My 4-Hour Workweek.

I will still be blogging here on a regular basis as I have been doing for the past four years. :)

Now, let’s get to the site…

New Site Revealed

It’s taken me more than two months to get this site ready for launch, and the time has finally come.  If you recall, I wrote this post to outline my goal of creating a new site where one month of content is created before the site even launches.  After putting a crazy amount of hours into this, I’m happy to say, I succeeded with that goal.

Without further ado, the new site is:

The Daily Interview (http://www.thedailyinterview.com)

What’s This Site All About?

To put it in simple terms, the goal of this site is to interview a new blogger or internet entrepreneur every day, five days a week.

These are going to be written interviews, so that you can read them relatively quickly and at your convenience.  No need to find the time to listen to a 30 minute podcast or anything like that (although I do plan on eventually starting a podcast to go along with this new site).  I love podcasts, but I also know that a lot of people like to have easily-consumed material that they can read when they want to kill 5-10 minutes.

I can’t promise that every interview will be jam-packed with excitement, but what I can promise is that every person I interview has had some level of success and is able to share some of that inspiration and wisdom with you and me.

I’ve been thrilled with the interviews I’ve already completed, some with bloggers and internet entrepreneurs that I’m sure you’ve heard of (and probably follow right now).  There’s so much to learn from people who have found success, and I love reading about how people got to where they are today.

The one thing I’ve tried to focus on is interviewing “normal” people – what I mean by that is, I’m not trying to get interviews with the creators of Facebook or Twitter.  I want to interview successful bloggers and entrepreneurs who have had success that is definitely possible for people like you and me.

Today’s Interviews

Because today is launch day, I’ve decided to publish two interviews.  Here’s a little bit of information about each of them:

Interview with Justin Cooke from EmpireFlippers.com

As someone who has been reading Empire Flippers since its early days (back when it was called Adsense Flippers), I was thrilled to do this interview.  Justin and his business partner Joe have been running multiple successful businesses in the Philippines.

The business that they mostly feature at Empire Flippers is the selling of niche sites.  They have a team that builds the sites, ranks them, and once they’re at a point of earning a decent amount of money, they flip the site for a tidy profit (in general).  They are pretty diversified, however, so this isn’t their only source of income online.

To put their success in perspective – they’ve generated between $25,000-75,000 in each month for 2013.  I love their transparency, as they break down this income each month within their income reports.

Anyway, check out the interview and learn more about Justin and Empire Flippers.

Interview with Tim Soulo from BloggerJet.com

Tim blogs about various internet marketing topics while working a full time “real” marketing job.  He’s an awesome writer who really knows how to create content that converts.  He’s also done other cool things like create a premium WordPress plugin and secure a few guest posting opportunities on some very well-known blogs.

Check out my interview with Tim – you’re going to learn a few things.

In Conclusion…

I encourage you to stop by, leave a comment, and even subscribe to the site if this is something you think you’d like to read on a daily basis.  Subscribe here if you want to receive daily e-mails (the interview post will be delivered straight to your e-mail), or subscribe below if you’d just like a weekly digest.






Also, please leave me a comment below and let me know what you think about my new site.  Am I crazy for starting a site that needs to publish content 5 days a week? Probably… Let me know! Thank you!

  2. Oooh did someone say Blogger Jet? I only discovered the site a few weeks ago and think it’s epic so can’t wait to dive into that one!

    Best of luck with the site. I really hope it does well but goodness only knows how much work it’s going to be to find and then interview five people a week!

  7. Congrats on the launch, Eric!

    It’s kind of like the Entrepreneur On Fire format, except for bloggers instead of podcasters.

    There’s a ton of work with this one but, if you can keep the quality high, a ton of potential value here too.

    Best of luck!

    Thanks Justin! And a big thank you for being my first guest.

    It is a lot like EOFire format, except everything is text-based instead of podcast, and I plan on mine being only 5 days a week instead of 7.

    A ton of work ahead, indeed. It’s going to be a great test of my ability to create systems that allow me to keep up this pace.

  8. Hey Eric,

    I think this is a cool idea for a site. People are always looking for inspiration when it comes to internet marketing and I think hearing people’s personal stories is one of the best ways of getting inspired. Those stories are certainly things that I like to listen to from time to time.

    There is one thing that I think might be a problem for you though and you’ve already pointed out what it is: the frequent posting schedule. It’s not just that posting that often is difficult, but with this type of website you have to also find enough people who are willing to do interviews with you. At some point, it’s going to be difficult to find keep finding more people.

    I don’t mean to discourage you or prevent you from doing what you want to do with the site, but I’m just trying to point out potential downsides that you might want to consider and prepare for.

    I wish you the best of luck with the site.

    Thanks Peter, and I appreciate your feedback.

    I do agree that the posting schedule is going to be a challenge. I suppose I’ve put myself in an awkward position by calling it “The Daily Interview”, because that doesn’t leave me a ton of room to change up the posting schedule to something less frequent.

    At any rate, I’m going to go for it. Part of being able to maintain the daily schedule will be the ability and willingness to interview some not-so-”famous” bloggers and newer internet entrepreneurs. Maybe people who don’t have that amazing success yet, but STILL have a good story to tell. I’m interested in those people too, and there aren’t many websites who feature them.

    We’ll see how it goes – if after…let’s say, 200 interviews, I decide that this site isn’t going anywhere, I could scrap it. But if I see any hope for it becoming a success, I’m going to do everything in my power to push forward and make it work.

  10. Really interesting idea for a website, I was expecting a niche site, maybe an Amazon site or at a push a simple e-commerce site.

    Didn’t see that coming, looking forward to reading the interviews. :)

    Thanks for the comment, Alex. Yeah, I really wanted to get away from the traditional “niche sites” and create something that I could really turn into a massive resource with an actual community around it. Let’s hope it gets to that point!

  11. It looks really nice!
    Good luck with it!
    I Like the Design :) Keep it up !!
