About This Course

Course Description

The website I built while creating this course has now made me over $10,000 and generates around $3,000 per month.  Simply put, the process works and though i won't guarantee the same results, I'm confident the course will pay for itself if you follow along and do the things that I recommend.

What are people saying about this course?


"I just got done with 2 sections of this course and the value is incredible. As a person who just started an authority site, Ron's explanations and expertise will help me rank better in the search engines. I had been using the Google Keyword Planner for my research and did not even know I was not being efficient. Thanks Ron ! Oh, the animated videos are an excellent and innovative touch."

-Gertrude N.

Everything you need to know about an Authority Website!

"This course doesn't hold back, it gives you everything you need in detail without getting confusing or wasting your time with filler content. After completing it I feel ready to dig in and get started on my new authority website."

-Margaret S.

Who should take this course?

This course is for those that want to create their own website in a specific subject or topic that they are passionate about. Otherwise known as an "Authority Website", this course is a great option for beginners because authority websites have a low startup cost and if done correctly, can continually generate income on a monthly basis.

This course covers:

  • What you need to know before you begin
  • How to complete keyword research
  • How to complete competitive research
  • How to choose the right website domain and hosting plan
  • How to make your website look good on a budget
  • How to create get content and ways to get it seen
  • Next Steps to take to further your website

What went into producing this course?

In total, this course is about 4 hours of total content. This course took a tremendous amount of work and has a very high production value. There was a team of five people who worked a total of 130+ hours on this course.

What is this course about?

Many people have tried to create authority websites before and failed. This course aims to change that. The curriculum is the exact process that I took to create my own successful authority website and can be considered a blueprint of what you should do too.

What kind of materials are included in this course?

This course has two different types of videos in the lectures.

The first type of videos explain general concepts and uses animations and call-outs to illustrate key concepts.

The second type of videos are screen recordings with call-outs that show you exactly what you need to know to use Google Analytics with your course.

Every lecture also has audio transcripts and certain lectures include a PDF download to assist students in learning key concepts.

Why take this course?

If you finally want a successful website that continually generates income on a monthly basis and have grown tired of listening to other people who have never actually created their own successful authority website, then this course is for you.

What are the requirements?

  • You should already be familiar with Wordpress

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Launch a Successful Money Making Website
  • Understand What an Authority Website is

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is meant for those that are looking to create their own Authority Website. It doesn't matter if you've tried before and been unsuccessful, that is irrelevant.
