About The Rise To The Top

Here’s the Deal…

instudio

I’m David.

I help awesome people create and sell digital products and programs online.

Oh and because making up words is fun, I call all of us (peeps who create and sell digital products/programs/advice online) mediapreneurs. Write that down.

Products & Programs

I’m super passionate about helping mediapreneurs generate revenue (the bling bling…the right way!) & grow their audience like a weed through my products and programs including:

Create Awesome Online Courses: The proven step-by-step system for creating, promoting & profiting from your own online course. Nab the free video series: How to turn your ONLINE PLATFORM (blog, web show, podcast, etc.) into REVENUE by creating your own ONLINE COURSE right here.

Create Awesome Interviews the #1 program to help folks create their own interview-based web TV show with hundreds of graduates creating shows on everything from inspired travel to car racing to healthy living. I did online interviews for over 5 years and these are all my secrets to interviewing and exactly the steps I took to gain credibility and ‘put myself on the map’ so to speak.

The Rise To The Top Story:
The Story Behind The Story Behind The Story – Why I Do This

laptopriseWelcome! So, about me and The Rise To The Top in a nutshell: I actually started The Rise To The Top wayyyyyy back in 2008 with a podcast and web show.

Within a few years I built a huge audience and had over 7,000,000 downloads of the show in over 100 countries (which also led to a book deal).

While I was pretty decent at growing an online audience and creating content, my world completely changed when I was introduced to the world of digital products (you know, teaching people how to do cool stuff) and launched my very first product Create Awesome Interviews (my step-by-step system for creating, promoting & profiting from online interviews).

thebookAfter my first information product was out there, I became obsessed like a crazy person because I LOVED the business of information products and programs (teaching what you know) and helping people get big results (that’s what it’s all about) while getting to work on your own schedule, from anywhere.

Meaning…

I did 100’s of interviews, thousands of hours of research/conversations with successful information product creators.

Tapped into their secrets and methods.

Obsessed like a crazy person (oh wait did I already say that?!)

Took the best of what I learned and implemented, tweaked, tested, etc. put my own spin on it.

Sort of like a mad scientist.

The results?

results

  • Well over $1,000,000 in information product sales (in the past 24 months in fact)
  • Multiple programs that have sold multiple six figures (in different niches)
  • Freedom (not tied to the computer all day, work when I want to). This means I can be on my schedule (sweet) which means more time to spend with my wife (awwww!), friends and family. Also time for traveling (of course!) and my obsession with sports both watching (especially the St. Louis Blues, Rams and Cardinals) as well as playing rec sports like softball and hockey.
  • Generating sales every day
  • Hired my dad (who handles all of our customer service BTW…tell him hi for me next time you talk with him)

Now instead of sitting on my butt after all of this, I started sharing my strategies and methods with RISE nation on creating and selling digital products online through my videos, webinars, products and programs.

And guess what happened?

My students started to get big time results (I’m far more proud of this than my own results…this is really why I do what I do!) creating and selling programs in all kinds of niches including fitness, business, cooking, baseball, snowboarding, teachers….and even Equestrian Tai Chi (yes, seriously!) and hundreds more.

Here is some love from a few peeps:
