My Best Digital Marketing Articles 🚀

New to my blog?

Well, nice to meet you!

I am Alejandro Rioja, a serial entrepreneur that created Flux Ventures and Young Slacker (among other things, read more about me).

I’ve spent the last 7 years learning all I could about digital marketing.

In this round-up, you will find my best marketing and growth posts as of 2020.

These are the same techniques I use on my 13 blogs.

I divided each section from beginner to advanced.

If you work through these guides, you will learn how I currently get over 500,000 organic visitors per month on my blogs, how I scaled Flux Chargers to $110,000/mo in sales and more!

If you are a beginner I suggest you work your way from the top to the bottom. (Bookmark this page for future reference!)

If you already have some working knowledge, jump directly to the [medium – advanced] posts.

You should also subscribe to my newsletter to learn when I post a new article (I currently don’t sell any courses btw, so no spam ever).

If you like these posts please share this page! I’m sure other people in your network will find value in them 🙂
