Blogger U contains 35+ blogging courses–that can be extremely overwhelming for any new blogger.
The New Blogger Bootcamp combats that overwhelm.
The 6-week program is designed to be the “point of entry” for beginning bloggers, leading them in a linear, step-by-step fashion, through the bare essentials for setting up, launching, and growing a successful blog.
After taking the program, the blogger will feel MUCH more comfortable navigating all the marketing strategies, blogging lingo, etc., that comes with growing a blog (and graduating into more advanced Blogger U courses!)
Here Are the New Blogger Stages We’ll Progress Through:
Stage 0 – Available Immediately
I want to blog, but don’t even have a domain name. I need to get my website set-up and customizing to start blogging.
Stage 1 – Available Immediately
I have WordPress installed and a theme ready to go. I need a strategic direction of what to say and who to say it to (even though I probably don’t realize I need to know this).
Stage 2 – Available 3 days after enrollment
I’ve defined goals, why I’m blogging, and who I want to speak to. I need to learn what type of content to produce (and HOW to produce it) in order to resonate with my target audience and start growing traffic and a following.
Stage 3 – Available 6 days after enrollment
I have a content strategy and framework for publishing. I need to learn the mystery-science of driving traffic to my blog! I’m overwhelmed with traffic strategies and need to figure out what will work for ME.
Stage 4 – Available 9 days after enrollment
I know where my audience hangs out online. I have clear expectations for the first 12 months, traffic-wise. I need an overview of strategies for the big blog traffic drivers–Google and Pinterest.
Stage 5 – Available 12 days after enrollment
I have a marketing strategy in place and have committed to an initial channel. I need to start collecting real fans and followers and organize them into my email list (and learn how to email them!)
Stage 6 – Available 15 days after enrollment
I have a budding email list and have developed a communication strategy to connect with them. I need to learn how to monetize my blog, and set a clear path to my income goals.
