I spend quite a bit of time on Pinterest and reading other blogs and have stumbled across some blog courses that have intrigued me. I want to make my blog the best that it can be but I am somewhat new at this. There are so many other bloggers who have paved the way and mapped out a road to success. Instead of trying to figure out how to do each step of the process, I’d love to follow their lead and learn from them.
So I put together this list of blog courses I’d like to take.
I don’t consider this a complete list, and am planning on coming back to this post and updating it – adding new courses and reviewing ones that I take. I’ve linked to each one so that you can go check them out. Who knows…maybe you’ll end up taking the courses first and can tell me firsthand how you liked them!
This is by far the course I want to take the most. It comes highly recommended and many of the bloggers who’ve taken the course have shared how it impacted their blogs. It seems like when I’m looking around at blogs that are very successful, they have Elite Bloggers Academy (or EBA as it is fondly referred to as) in common.
There is a hefty price tag on this course of nearly $800 (the price increased this year), which is why I haven’t yet taken it. This is something I’ll have to save up for. The course is not always open either. You can’t just jump in whenever you want. She has a waiting list that you can join here and she’ll let you know when registrations open (plus she sends you some freebies – which are always awesome!).
If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you probably already know that I am an affiliate for various companies, mainly Amazon. That means that if you click on a link in one of my blog posts and end up purchasing something on Amazon within a certain time period, then I get a small commission. It doesn’t affect the price you’re paying but it helps me to support my blogging habit.
But affiliate marketing doesn’t come naturally. You can’t just throw some links on your site and expect to start making an income through them. (I haven’t yet gotten anywhere near “income” level). The Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing course lays out a plan for generating serious dollars from promoting products that you love. I am excited to take this course and see how this is done (right). At $197 dollars, this is also a course that I am waiting to take until I can afford it. Though, from everything I’ve read, that money would be a very wise investment.
This course is all about Facebook page growth. Some people focus on Facebook and some focus on Pinterest for driving traffic to their blogs. I do both. But I’d love to have the knowledge to do them well. This course outlines how the author went from 2,000 page likes to a very engaged audience of over 100,000 in only 5 months.
While my page is not quite anywhere near even the 2,000 page mark, I’d still love to take this course and follow her strategies for page growth and engagement. This course is only $30 and is one that I’ll probably end up taking first (due to the low cost and great reviews!).
I am already a morning person. In fact, as I sit here and type this post, it is early morning and my husband and kiddos are still fast asleep (this is when I can best focus on writing). But even though I can wake up in the morning and make good use of my time, I’d like to take this course and see if there are any ways I can improve.
Since morning are already some of my best times, I’d like to refine them until I’m the most productive I can be. This course is not exactly “blog related”, and is geared toward anyone who wants to claim their mornings for productivity. With the low cost of only $17, it would be hard to go wrong!
And there you have it – the list of blog courses that are on my want-to-take list. I would love to be able to take at least two of these courses this year. Have you taken any of these blog courses? I’d love to know, so leave me a comment!
