learn the rise to the top system for creating, promoting & profiting from online interviews

So, you want to create your own interview-based web show. Awesome!

Pump the brakes. You might be thinking, “David…isn’t doing an interview show really, really, really, really hard?”

  • What kind of equipment do I need and how do I easily shoot and edit my interviews without being a tech genius?
  • How the heck do I get people to say YES! to an interview even when I’m just getting started?
  • How do I prep for an interview so I know what the heck I’m doing and ask the right questions?
  • How do I conduct a non-boring interview that has zero awkwardness and 100% awesomeness?
  • How do I promote my interviews to bring in all kinds of mad traffic (and build my list!)?
  • How do I turn my interviews into mad cash? I mean some real bling bling?

Don’t worry my friends. Uncle David is here to help you.

But, wait! Who is this David Siteman Garland guy (talking in the 3rd person) and why does he know so much about creating, promoting and profiting from online interviews?

The very, very quick version of my

Just a few short years ago, I came up with this crazy idea to create my own interview-based web show The Rise To The Top.

No experience. No idea what I was doing. Just a passion for figuring it out.

So, I experimented. Spent thousands and thousands of dollars of my own savings (honestly, it was my Bar Mitzvah money I’d saved up since I was 13) to figure it all out. And thousands and thousands upon hours in pure time learning how to make this work.

And what have been some of my results?

A few quick highlights:

  • The Rise To The Top has been viewed/listened to nearly 7,000,000 times in over 100 countries
  • The business around the show generates multiple 6-figures in income. More than enough to support my family including hiring my dad full time (he works for The Rise To The Top now). Even if you aren’t interested in monetizing your show, this is definitely something you should know.
  • I’ve had chance to interview (and perhaps more importantly form a relationship with) over 300 of the world’s top creative and unique entrepreneurs, authors and big thinkers ranging from “The Millionaire Matchmaker” Patti Stanger to the author of The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body Tim Ferriss.
  • I love the freedom of doing it from home and doing something I really freakin’ love on my terms. I get to work when I want for how long I want where I want which is pretty darn cool. This has allowed me ridiculous freedom to really enjoy the heck out of life be it a mid-day pick up hockey game with friends, a spontaneous trip to Costa Rica or kidnapping (not literally) my wife for a romantic day of fun including massages, wine and cheese. And, with my new found freedom I completed transformed my body from soft-ish to super fit.

and yes, it has led to all kinds of other cool stuff like speaking gigs, doing a special project with Google and book deal…but enough about me.

Is this shameless, self-promotional bragging of awesomeness? Well, yes of course it is! Just kidding. The idea here is to show you this is possible and not fluffy theory (if you want some fluff, go pet a bunny). Everything that has happened in the past couple of years has been a direct result of creating an interview-based web show.

You don’t need experience. You don’t need zillions of dollars or a huge team. You don’t need to be a “tech master of the universe” You don’t need a bunch of pre-existing connections and credibility.

It’s possible and you can do it too…

Now, for the first time ever by massive popular request (I mean literally thousands of requests) I’m revealing the EXACT “The Rise To The Top” system for creating, promoting and profiting from online interviews. This is exactly what I wish I would have had when I started The Rise To The Top as it would have saved me thousands of hours of aggravation and thousands of dollars in unnecessary costs.

F.A.Q. and Fun Tacts

Do I get access to everything all at once or do I have to wait?

Yes, you get access to everything right away. You can attack the material at any pace you want (I recommend staying in order). Many people think I’m nuts for giving full access but I know how life-changing this material can be when you learn and implement it.

Can I download the videos and all the other cool stuff?

YES! Everything is digital and downloadable. Enjoy!

Do I get lifetime access?

YES! Whoop, whoop!

David, what if I buy and want a refund? What’s the policy?

So, here is the deal on refunds. I pride myself on high quality programs that actually work…if you put the work in. Meaning, if you do what I teach you, good things happen. If you don’t do it, nothing good happens. Shocking, right?. If within 30 days, if you are unhappy for whatever reason just email our customer support led by my dad (proud papa) Randy Garland and you will receive a full refund. My team and I stand behind Create Awesome Interviews 100%.

I have a question, who should I ask?

We pride ourselves on having epic customer service thanks to our Community Manager Eleanore who heads up the customer service department to help you out with any customer-related issues.

Will I receive anything via snail mail?

Nope! Everything takes place online (all digital!) and not only can login anytime you want (and go at your own pace), you can also download everything and take it on the go with you.

I’m ready to roll, how much value am I gonna get?

If someone had come to me when I first started my web-based interview show and told me they were going give me access to 6 of the world’s top interviewers, step-by-step tutorials and all the secrets of interviewing success laid out in a simple, actionable way, I would have easily paid $15,000 if not more. How much would it be worth it to you to have the skills, secrets and strategies handed over to you so you have the road map to become a celebrity in your niche via creating online interviews? Command higher prices for everything you do? Land sponsor deals and partner opportunities? Relationships with influential people? $10,000? $50,000? $100,000?

An hour of time goes for at least $1,000 for private consulting and coaching. Speaking engagements are at least $15,000. Many of the top interviewers you will hear from charges thousands of consultations (and many are so busy they don’t even have the time for you to access them). Plus, you will be getting email scripts and resources that have landed me over $500,000 in revenue (exact sponsor scripts and offerings).

The LOWEST price that was recommended to charge was $2,500.

But, I’m not going to do that. I want people who are serious to learn from me, but they don’t have to spend anywhere near that much.

That’s why the price is a reasonable $197 for everything including all bonuses.

And you get everything. All training modules. All interrogations. All screencasts. All the bonuses including exact transcripts.

How about some shameless love?

My site is now just over 2 months old and rockin’! Guests are already starting to come to me and so are referrals. I had a Los Angeles PR firm contact me to interview their client as well. Cool beans!!

Since launch: Twitter followers have tripled, Facebook fan page likes are up 10X and my newsletter peeps are growing daily. And I just received a request from a NASCAR journalist to interview me! Go figure. Love it, and love C.A.I… !! No fluff here!!

Mark Evans

The course is applicable, inspirational, and worth every penny! David has a great, non-BS approach to his training which makes the implementation of his methods easy. If I needed brain surgery I would hire a great neurosurgeon – when I needed an interview coach…I basically hired David by joining Create Awesome Interviews.

Shelia Butler

I coulda saved my money, slogged through the process of building an interview show and made a bunch of mistakes in order to learn what David shares in Create Awesome Interviews. I probably would never have got the first interview up. I am still making mistakes. But I have a frigging INTERVIEW SHOW. I am making better mistakes, learning from them and growing my show, rather than struggling with the basics and wishing I had a show. Create Awesome Interviews showed me (sing along) This is how we do it… I’ve done it and am getting better every day. Get the program, you can do it too.

Jeff Sparks

Create Awesome Interviews is one of the best investments I’ve made online.If you are interested in creating an interview show please know that this program is worth at least four times its price in awesome content. The thing I loved most about it is that David shares very actionable concepts that are not just incredibly easy to implement but plainly speaking produce measurable results. Just four weeks after finishing the course I feel a significant difference in the quality of my show. If you are even half serious about doing an online show you need to get this now.

Bernardo Mendez

I think that people see courses out there and say to themselves “oh i know exactly how that works” but in reality they have a tiny bit of a clue. I can’t even begin to explain how much I learned from this course and I was very hesitant buy but hosting a show has never felt more right so I made the investment. It was one of the best investments I’ve made in myself yet.

The course really showed me how to prepare for interviews, leverage guests to get future guests with warm intros all the way down to the scripts which I use every day. The tech review is super helpful and I already have people asking me how I do it.

Create Awesome Interviews was really the only way I would have been able to figure this out and take action in the most educated way possible.

I highly recommend anyone interested in podcasting, video blogging and media creation to take it. Period.

Greg Hickman

I got a great grasp of the “possibilities” that are open to me by having a show positioned correctly in the market place. David does a great job sharing (big mind meld happened) ALL his experiences! He held nothing back!

Not to mention the technical stuff, fabulous! All the insider-”rookie mistake” tips were so right on target, he mentioned everything I was currently struggling with and paved a smooth path ahead for me! Thanks David!!
