Dusty Porter is an online content creator and voice actor. He has been creating online content for almost ten years now and has been running his company Porter Media for over 6.
Dusty was laid off from his 9-5 job in April of 2011, one year after getting married. He decided that he never wanted to feel that way again. It was a job that he loved and thought he would be doing for the next 25 years of his life. Always having an interest for Entrepreneurship and business, he decided to scour the internet for ideas on how to make money from home.
Being a newly-wed, and wanting to provide for his family he had to do something quick. This was when Dusty discovered the ability to utilize the internet and create an online business. It started with selling random things on eBay and Amazon. Then it went to working on a site called Fiverr and selling his voice to different companies for them to use for their videos. This snowballed year after year, and he learned more about creating value for people to grow an engaged and actionable community.
With the birth of his little girl Macie in December of 2015, there was added motivation to grow an online business that provided for his family.
Dusty now runs a successful YouTube channel called “Technologyguru”, all about teaching people how to use technology and simplifying things in a way that very few can do through video. This channel currently has over 120 thousand subscribers and 22 million video views. You can subscribe to his YouTube channel here.
He also runs the YouTube Creators Hub podcast to help video creators who want to start, grow, and monetize their video content. This show averages about 15-20 thousand downloads per week and continues to grow. Subscribe to the YouTube Creators Hub podcast here.
Dusty also runs the Podcasters Unplugged podcast to help audio creators who want to start, grow, and monetize their podcasts. He interviews successful podcast hosts every week about their podcasting journey and how they built and monetized their content. Subscribe to the Podcasters Unplugged show here.
This takes us to the present. He now has gained enough knowledge about running an online business, and wants to share it with the world, and that is where the “Online Business Realm” blog and podcast come in. This blog and podcast will be the hub for all things Online Business, Passive Income, and any strategy that he learns that can benefit those people looking to make an income online.
I hope you find this website helpful and if you do, find me on social media and let me know! I look forward to getting to know all of you and hearing your stories.
I want to create content that changes lives and makes a difference.
Ben Armstrong is an experienced internet marketer and web designer. He has been working in the internet marketing field since 2011 and has seen success across many different avenues.
Ben was upset with his life as a car wash attendant. Tired of watching people around him become entrepreneurs, Ben set out to find his own niche in the internet marketing world. Through research and hard work, he started an affiliate ticket company called FrontPageTickets.com.
After only a few months in the ticket business, Ben was able to quit his 9-5 job at the car wash and begin his internet marketing career. Ben quickly turned this company into a huge success and won “Rookie Marketer of the Year” from Ticket Network in 2012. FrontPageTickets.com is still going strong almost 7 years later.
Throughout Ben’s online endeavors, he quickly became frustrated by working with web designers, graphic designers, & marketers. They all seemed to have one thing in common: they were terrible at customer service. They never met deadlines, responded to emails, or were able to complete jobs correctly. He then set out to learn everything he could about websites, graphics, & marketing.
Years later, Ben has an immense knowledge of all things internet marketing. In 2015, he started his own website design business, Ben Armstrong Designs. Through that business, Ben has created well over 100 websites and has excelled in the one thing all those before him failed at; customer service. Making his customers happy is what separates Ben from other website designers.
Ben is a self-taught WordPress master & Photoshop ninja.
Ben is married to his beautiful wife, Bethany. Ben and Bethany live with their 3 children (Madden, Zoe, & Blake) and 4 dogs (Milo, Miko, Skip, & Belle). That’s right. He has 9 creatures living in his home!
