Hunters & Farmers

How do you grow your business and find customers - are you a hunter or a farmer? At the beginning of 2020, I joined the local BNI group in Greenville, NC (you can visit our chapter if you're in the area, or via Zoom during the pandemic). Another thing that happened at the beginning of […]

New Year, New Beginning

Like most people, I have set numerous resolutions at the start of a new year - only to abandon those resolutions before the end of January. It is incredibly difficult to create a new habit and stick with it for 365 days without faltering. Even worse, when I do stumble it becomes much easier to […]

Best Lightweight Laptop for Digital Nomads

I have been traveling the world and working from my laptop since 2010. In that time I have carried a 15.4" 5.5 lb machine, an 11.6" 3.5 lb featherweight, and everything in between. Recently, I was in the market for a new laptop and was surprised for find how difficult it was to filter through […]

Expanding Beyond Consulting

Many clients have been asking me to offer a more complete solution for their website. I have helped them 2X, 10X, and 12X their businesses and now they're struggling with more technical challenges. Things like redesigning their site, upgrading to HTTPS, and troubleshooting their site - these have proven to be significant hurdles. Starting today, […]

Monetization with AdSense and Other Ad Networks

Once you have a niche website setup, and begin getting some traffic, Google AdSense becomes a very appealing way to start earning some money. This is a common first step for most niche sites, so it’s worth a deeper exploration. Let’s take a look at what is required to earn $100 per day using AdSense […]

Selling Without Selling Out

I’ve mentioned this phrase, “selling without selling out”, several times on this blog and in my videos on Periscope. I’d like to take a moment to break that down a little bit and explain exactly what I mean by this.

Blogging For Fun & Profit

My clients are great at the bit about blogging for fun. They absolutely love the work they are doing with their website and truly enjoy serving their audience. Some have been putting in hours building their sites for years, with little to no income to show for their effort. That profit bit is where they […]

One Week at the Lake

After visiting Barcelona for a month, attending the Wikipedia conference in Berlin, and hosting the Raleigh SEO Meetup Conference - I'm spending a week at my lake property. Perhaps you read about The Lake Royale Project that I announced last year. Essentially, I have been able to build this business and live a life of location […]

Five Weeks in Europe as a Digital Nomad

A few months ago, I learned about the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin. Being one of the three founders of the Triangle Wikipedians user group in North Carolina, I had the opportunity to attend the conference this year. The main reason I was able to go when the other two founding members could not is that […]

Maybe SEO Is Not The Answer

I recently gave a presentation at the Raleigh SEO Meetup Conference which talked about why I decided not to deliver the SEO results my client asked for. The title and subtitle were selected because they would get the attention of attendees at the Raleigh SEO Meetup Conference. You see, I organized this conference and here […]

The Barcelona Accident

Back in 2011, I spent six months living in Barcelona. When I came back from this trip, friends and family said that I looked great. They all asked if I had lost weight, so I hopped on a scale. To my surprise I had dropped 35 lbs without even trying!

The Lake Royale Project

[thrive_megabutton mt="Update" st="One year after moving to Lake Royale" color="green" link="http://frankcjones.com/one-week-lake/" target="_self" align="aligncenter"] Twelve days ago I began an experiment in lifestyle design and financial independence. I moved into a travel trailer at a lake community just outside Raleigh. At the time when I moved in, there was no running water, no electricity, no phone […]

Wikimedia Conference in Berlin

What does Wikipedia have to do with monetization, business strategy, and online marketing? That's the first thing most people will ask when they learn about my involvement with Wikipedia and the free culture movement. Think about it this way, Wikipedia is one of the most popular websites in the whole world. It is dedicated to […]

Intentional Living

If you're like most people, you wake up in the morning and go to work five days a week. You spend about 8 hours a day at a job you hate because that's how you pay for the things you want and take care of the people you love. The problem is, this 40-hour workweek […]

Raleigh SEO Meetup Conference

The Raleigh SEO Meetup Conference was a huge success. Being the first year for this event, I used the Lean Startup Methodology to test my ideas, measure results, and pivot when needed. This is the same process I use when working with clients, and I use Lean Principles in my own businesses all the time.

  • Frank knows his stuff when it comes to growing businesses for lifestyle design. From travel hacks to minimalism he'll quickly help you realize that your way is not the only way!

    Broc Pacholik

  • A few years ago I was looking for a way to get more active in the local Raleigh SEO community. I found the Raleigh SEO Meetup and went to my first session. There I met Frank, and have been a part of the group ever since. Frank has managed to move the starved group from meeting in a library, to having some of the biggest names in SEO speak. In addition, he helped the group spawn a very successful conference that received considerable praise for organization and content. The Raleigh SEO Meetup continues to grow and give great content to the Raleigh community under his leadership.

    JR Oakes

  • Besides his extensive business and technical expertise, Frank is an honest, trustworthy guy. We've developed a strong partnership that's lasted years. I trust his advice more than anyone I've ever interacted with in the online business world.

    I'd strongly recommend his services, and I wish we had more people like him in the online business sector.
