Course Description

Here's What Some Of The Students Have Said About This Course:

I took this course because I needed a basic explanation on how to get people to read my blog on a regular basis as well as hopefully make money from doing what I love - blogging and traveling! This course is perfect for beginners. It thoroughly explains everything you need to know for growing a following and how to set up your blog to make money! Step by step with no gaps so you don't get lost. I quickly got followers (exponentially more) and was able to set up and get subscribers. Do yourself a favor and take it. Seriously.

I learned how to setup my website, SEO, the mindset of content creation, and how to implement a monetization strategy (because he gives his strategy away to us)...gotta love it!
