  • Anyone interested in learning to make money online

What will I learn?

How to build your foundation: These are the essential tools (WordPress plugins, affiliate programs, and Pinterest tools) that we believe every blogger who is serious about monetization needs to install. Some of them have free trials, but these are premium tools, and the sooner you invest in the success of your business (and that's what your blog is!), the sooner you'll start to see results.

How to use your foundation to grow: This section has a few small courses to help you get your feet wet with figuring out how to make money on every post you create. You'll learn how to set up your blog, and you'll learn how to create your first gift guide (which you should do as soon as you can!).

How to grow with Pinterest: We would be remiss if we left out anything having to do with Pinterest, given that we know from experience (ours and our clients') that a solid Pinterest strategy is the key to monetization success. There are only two courses we recommend, even though there are hundreds of Pinterest courses out there.

How to level up with affiliate marketing: Want to make a bigger splash with your blog's income? You need to learn all the ins and outs of affiliate marketing! There's one course we recommend, and one network to join.

How to round out your skillset with these robust blogging courses: At this point, you'll realize that learning is revealing to you all that you don't know. There are three big blogging and online business courses we recommend, depending on your niche, for you to take your blog (and its revenue) to the next level.

Bonus: Take better pictures for your blog: This section has recommendations for bloggers who take -- or want to take -- their own pictures for use on their blogs. A picture is worth a thousand words... what is yours saying?
