I’m Pat Flynn, a regular guy who happens to be a successful online entrepreneur. You may know me from my other podcast, Smart Passive Income, which is consistently ranked as a #1 business podcast. I love hearing from my fans, and the opportunity to answer their questions was why I started the original AskPat podcast. After 1,000 very successful episodes, I’m making AskPat even better! AskPat 2.0 takes the AskPat template and goes deeper with a weekly coaching call between me and an entrepreneur just like you! I won't be able to coach everyone, but I'll do my best to feature entrepreneurs with questions other online business owners can relate to and learn from. If you’re stuck with your online business, just ask pat! Now, plug in those headphones because it’s time to learn together about online business, entrepreneurship, internet marketing, audience building, passive income, blogging, list building, virtual assistants, startups, search engine optimization, email marketing, and so much more. #askpat

Today's question comes from Sean, who asks about building traffic to his blog. Which method is best for a new blog: SEO or content marketing? Sean’s site is http://flighttrainingpro.com. I recommend using Yoast SEO WordPress plugin to help you include the correct SEO fields (https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordpress-seo/); All in One SEO Pack is also a good alternative plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/all-in-one-seo-pack/).

Today's question comes from Marie, who is building an online course for kids. What is the best tool to use for delivering video and keeping them protected? In this episode, I discuss how I use video on my free podcasting tutorial (http://www.podcastingtutorial.com) versus a paid course like Smart From Scratch. Teachable is a good option if you're looking for a full course platform (http://askpat.com/teachable). If you're using your own hosting system (like WordPress with a membership plugin), Wistia is an excellent video platform (https://wistia.com/), as is Vimeo (https://vimeo.com/). Do you have a question about hosting a paid course? Record it at http://www.askpat.com/. My new course, Smart From Scratch, launches this month to help you choose and validate a business idea.
