Becoming a Blogger - Online Training Course

It's that time again! A new year full of new beginnings. If your goal is to turn your blog into a money-making machine in 2018, then I'm here to help you. I'm an online business manager turned blogger, and I'm happy to share everything that I've learned with you in my upcoming course.

Becoming a Blogger will be opening on January 22nd, 2018, and I'll be teaching you how to start and build a blog that actually makes money. I'm not gonna lie: it's a lot of work. But, if you really want to do it, you can, and I'm going to show you how.

Here is a glimpse of the coursework we'll be covering:

  • How to set up your blog the right way. We’ll go over my step-by-step guide for getting your blog set up to make money from day one. (It's actually not difficult or expensive, not at all)!

  • How to build a blog when you're busy and on a budget. We'll cover the easiest and least expensive blogging tools that help you to automate and get profitable results. 

  • How to write content that attracts readers to your blog. More readers can mean more income, so it’s important to write attractive content. I’ll show you how.

  • How to optimize your posts for search engines. SEO (search engine optimization) is a big part of blogging success. We all need to stay on Google’s good side, so I'll give you my best SEO tips to help you do that.

  • The top 10 systems that bloggers use to make money online. Most people don’t even know what a blogger really does to make money. I’ll show you the top 10 ways that you CAN make money from your blog, and help you figure out what income strategies you want to focus on.

  • Making money through affiliate marketing. How it works, how to join affiliate networks, and how to write content that actually makes you money through your affiliate programs.

  • How to use email marketing to grow your blog. I’ll show you how to start collecting email addresses on your blog, how to write emails that people will OPEN and READ, how to design an automated email series, and how to use your email list to make money.

  • How to optimize your social media channels to grow your blog. You should be somewhat active on ALL of the big social media networks: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest.

  • How to stay focused and organized as a blogger. Working for yourself and working from home both take serious discipline. I'll share my secrets for running a household with small children, and also managing a successful blog.  

I know that's a lot to take in! And that's why we're spreading this coursework over 21 days of instruction. We'll break this up into sections, and I'll make it as easy as possible for you. I'll also be here every step of the way, to help you and answer your questions!

I have a few bonuses to throw in too. 

* Access to my list of over 50 Facebook groups that will help you build traffic to your blog.

* Access to my personal Facebook community, where we share content to boost our blog traffic.

* A discount on website hosting through Siteground.

So much good stuff.

About the Teacher

My name is Cate, the mama of two and owner of the Sweet and Simple Life blog. I've been an online business manager for seven years, and recently made the switch from occasional blogger to career blogger. I'm all about keeping life and business as simple as possible, so this course will reflect that.

I'm here to share everything that I know about blogging with you, so that you can make money doing what you love, and start enjoying the sweet side of life with your family and friends. 



Q: Why is the course only $99?

A: This is an introductory price for January of 2018 ONLY. I wanted to give every new blogger a chance to access this super helpful training and get the most out of the New Year.  

I'm not here to get rich off you guys. I'm here to serve people that are just getting started with their blog and need help making it profitable. And, if I do my job right, you'll recommend other people to me too! And that's how I pay my bills.

Q: What credentials do you have?

A: First of all, don't ever trust someone that has no tangible (real) credentials. I know many new bloggers that were scammed out of thousands of dollars, by a so-called "professional". You don't need a college degree to be successful, but you need some sort of proof that you can do your job. Always ask about credentials. 

Credentials applicable to Business Blogging:

Associate of Science (A.S.) degree in Business Management
Online Business Management experience (7 years)
Content Writing, Editing, Proofreading experience (7 years)
Email Marketing Certification
Content Marketing Certification
Professional Blogging Experience (2 years)

Again, the credentials don't mean everything, but you shouldn't spend money on a course that someone threw together just to make a quick buck. Make sure the teacher knows what they're talking about.

Q. How quickly will I be able to make money from my blog?

A: That depends on how much time and energy you are able to dedicate to the work. I'm going to show you everything that I have personally done to turn my blog into a profitable business. With this training, and some hard work, you can start making money within a few weeks of launching your blog.

I personally continued at my full-time job for two years before I chose to replace my secular income with my blogging income. BUT, I worked full time and had two small babies at home. If you have more free time, you can absolutely make more money and quit your job much faster than I did! It's completely up to you.

Q. What qualifies you to teach a course on blogging?

A: I have been blogging for over two years and have already built my blog into a business that makes money. Through paid training courses, free training courses, online articles, asking questions, interviewing successful bloggers, and trial-and-error, I have acquired the knowledge and skill needed to build a successful blog. I already did the hard work for you, so you kinda scored just now.

But you guys, I’m not a millionaire. I don’t have allllll the answers.

I’m just a blogger that loves my job and makes enough money to pay my bills and take care of my kids. I have a flexible schedule and a full life, and I get to explore my city, eat delicious food, and try lots of cool products for free! 

I know how to build a blog, a mailing list, and a social media following from absolute scratch, into a business that actually makes money. And I’m happy to share what I’ve learned with you!
