For those of you who aren’t bloggers I’ll be back to the regular stuff soon, but I just hit a huge milestone and I have to share with my fellow bloggers!
Having a blog is more fun, more challenging, more addicting, and more work than I ever imagined. It is a total bonus that it happens to be work that I love, and in the past 6 months I have focused on putting my head down and getting to work to grow my blog into something that I am proud of and can earn an income from!
In the fall of last year I had grown my blog to just under 100K pageviews on my own. By reading a zillion articles that contradicted each other, testing out different ways of doing things, and failing until finally I would find something that did work and stick to it. Then it was on to the next thing I had to figure out. I was in desperate need of someone to guide me through the process of creating a successful blog and show me step-by- step, exactly how to grow my traffic and generate a sustainable income.
That is exactly what Elite Blog Academy was designed to do. So 6 months ago I decided to take a chance and enroll in the first-ever Elite Blog Academy course. I wasn’t sure I would learn anything new, but I was willing to take the chance. I think it was the 100% money back guarantee coupled with my huge respect for Ruth, the course creator, that got me.
Anyway, I’m so glad I took the chance cause in the 6 months since I started Elite Blog Academy, I have more than doubled my pageviews and as a result almost tripled my income. And I haven’t even completed every unit yet! This post contains affiliate links, which means if you purchase the course I earn a commission at no extra cost to you. This course is something I really believe that will help you take your blog to the next level, like it did for me.
Want to see actual numbers?
I started the Elite Blog Academy in September of 2014 with about 90K pageviews. Last month I passed a QUARTER OF A MILLION PAGEVIEWS, which is just nuts!
When I began the course, it took discipline to take it slow because believe me there are units you are going to want to skip to, but I’m so glad I followed Ruth’s advice and focused on one unit at a time. She walked me through how to really look at my site and ensure that it was set up for great user experience. I was forced to go back, and do a bit of organizing which helped so much.
Once I was all organized, I hit the ground running with some amazing strategies that quickly increased my traffic. Within the first few months I was able to gain 50K + additional monthly views and since December I have gained another 100K pageviews putting me over 250K pageviews last month! Unbelievable right?
I mean come on…I started my blog in April of 2013 and you can see up above that I had only 14 K pageviews in April of 2014, one year into blogging. Now just under 2 years in I’m at 260K!
That is a 1716% increase in pageviews in a little less than a year!
I’m not going to sit here and say that those number didn’t come with a ton of heart driven work on my end, but I will say that I saved so much time trying to figure out what works and what doesn’t by following the strategies I learned in this course. I really believe that you get out of something what you put into it, and that is the same for my business. I get that this is an investment, but if you are willing to do the work, you will see a return.
Listen up though if you are wanting to take the course too!
