The first time I heard about Benny Lewis I was immediately intrigued by his story. Anybody who traveled the world in an effort to become fluent in languages, and do it in 3 months had to be interesting. I had the good fortune to also hang out with Benny in Las Vegas for a few days at Blogworld. Here’s a few of the highlights from our chat:
  • How Benny Decided to Become a Professional Language Hacker
  • Why he makes videos in 7 languages in order to learn languages
  • The Keys to Growing to over 4,000 subscribers in  less than a year
  • Why RSS subscribers are essentially meaningless if you intend to monetize
  • Why Benny decided to do the EXACT OPPOSITE of what some well known bloggers advised him to do
  • Why he uses a picture of himself in every single post to build brand recognition
  • The Power of Incorporating Video into Your Sales Page to Increase Conversion
  • How he leverage controversy and an attack on him to gain traffic
  • Why it’s worth interviewing people who are not Bloggers
  • The power of Incorporating Multimedia Content Downloads into your Ebook
  • How he got 600 Subscribers to his email list over the course of  a couple weeks
  • Networking with other bloggers regardless of their status
Benny Lewis is currently on a mission to learn any language, anywhere. His blog, Fluentin3Months provides unconventional language hacking tips while he travels the world to learn the languages to fluency. You can follow him on twitter @irishpolyglot
