Description

This course walks you through the process, from start (writing/publishing) to finish (promoting) and everything in between, as it relates to guest blogging using the MyBlogGuest platform.

Managing Expectations for this course:
This course is more like an indexed, comprehensive, training resource. An online training library for MyBlogGuest. It is broken down into sections so that you can go directly to the section that you need. It is not expected that you necessarily start with lecture one and proceed through all of them (especially since some of the lectures at the end are there for resources and added bonus).

What are people saying?
Don Sturgill, MBG Elite Gallery Editor and exceptional, gifted writer says,

"Thank you to Deborah Anderson for collecting the wealth of material on Guest Blogging published by Ann Smarty and the My Blog Guest team. Even though I am the Elite Gallery editor for MBG, I often have to search to find information on a topic related to Guest Blogging. Now, it is all in one place and simple to locate. Whether you approach it as a course or use it like a library ... this now THE place on the internet to get educated on the crafts that contribute to Guest Blogging. For more info, go to www.myblogguest.com and sign up for the FREE basic membership. Incredible!"

Marisa, a newbie to blogging has also found this course helpful in getting her dreams off the ground and says,

"I am brand new to MBG and I have found this course on Udemy to be soooooo helpful. There is a lot of information here & I like that it is a one-stop-shop where I can navigate directly to the place where I can find how-to information. Already, as a result of this training, I got 6 articles for my new blog. That wouldn't have happened without this training so that I could understand what I was doing. Thank you MBG team and community!"

An experienced infoproduct creator and University Marketing Instructor, Charles Terrence Harper, says,

"A good information product is, to me, something I can take one time and reference later. It is rare when you can learn everything in one sitting. The MBG team pretty much knows what they're talking about and have provided me with a good resource. I will be recommending this course to beginning bloggers looking for new methods as well as fundamentals. Way to go.."

Future of the MBG Course on Udemy

To truly understand how to benefit from this course, we need to understand about its formation and objective, in an ongoing perspective.

Just because the course is on Udemy does not mean that it has all been written. This is an evolving course, especially with the frequency of added features to the MBG platform. It is likely, over time, that you will see the videos that may be more advertising or testimonial related disappear and replaced by more how-to videos. In the same way, many of the text-based articles will be replaced with how-to videos and presentations.

The idea was to get the information to you, in a way that was easy to navigate, and as quickly as possible. Then, from there, we make it even better.

Now, about the course itself...
The focus of MBG is on quality. If you are a guest author or publisher that loves the idea of guest blogging for the sake of the quality benefits, than this course is for you. This step-by-step course walks through different aspects, using the MyBlogGuest.com platform. You can also learn basics of guest blogging without using the MyBlogGuest platform, but the idea is that there are many tools available on the MBG site that will make your job easier and many of them are accessible to free members.

Most of the material is written by Ann Smarty, founder of MyBlogGuest.com. There is also material provided by the MBG team, as well as the MBG community.
