In 2014 we decided to start a blog to encourage other moms on this crazy parenting journey we are all on. We had no idea the blog would also become the sole income of our family, making more than quadruple what we were before.
If you've been thinking about starting a blog, the answer is YES!
Whether you're brand new to the blogosphere or you've started a blog that's either collecting dust or just plain stuck, you're in the right place!
Successful Startup is a step-by-step guide on how to start a blog the right way - walking you through every single detail, from the nitty-gritty details to the big picture stuff that turns into more paychecks.
Learn what works and avoid struggling for months on what doesn't. This course is a fast track - you'll know what to spend your time on (and what not to waste your time on) so you can get to the money-making stage pronto.
One of the big problems both new and experienced bloggers have is not knowing what the most beneficial next step is.
If you jump too far ahead, it's easy to get overwhelmed.
If you get sucked into too many small projects, you'll never get anywhere.
If you miss something crucial, you run the risk of your business crumbling because the foundation isn't set up correctly.
The best way to avoid this is to know your current stage and use a roadmap to get to the next one.
Successful Startup is a straight-forward roadmap. Taking you through everything step-by-step without huge textbooks or long lectures. Instead you'll have...
• Systems that work
• Timeless strategies
• And easy to follow instructions.
"I more than RECOMMEND this course to anyone, I have learned so much about blogging from Alida, she has educated me in content creation, social media, and business. Everything you learn in this course is practical, applicable, useful knowledge that you will use literally every day on your blog. After taking Alida's advice my blog traffic has QUADRUPLED and my following on all my social media platforms has grown. I now make over $45,000 a year working part-time on my blog." – Jackie Houston, DIY Blogger, Iheartartsandcrafts.com
Nothing will be overlooked! The course + workbook will make sure you don't miss even the smallest details.
"I loved learning from Alida, it made the entire setup process nearly painless. There were so many more details that went into it than I expected, having a hand to hold really helped. I still have a few details left but I'm excited about the future of my blog and the traveling I'll be able to do because of it." – Grace Ratliff
Avoid spinning in circles and dumpster diving the internet trying to find answers. Instead launch a quality site in no time.
Use the methods we teach you to create helpful content that draws in readers, then make money through advertisement revenue and affiliate income while you sleep.
Which means you can say hello to your dreams!
Hey there! I'm Alida and I'm the founder of The Realistic Mama, a site that reaches between 500,000 to a million readers each month! Blogging is my full-time job with part time hours and I'd love to show you how it can be your job too!
My husband Corey and I have 2 kiddos who we can't get enough of, we're about to hit the road as a family and travel for a few months in an RV. My favorite things include: the beach, photography and of course chocolate.
I love sharing blogging tips and business tricks with entrepreneurs, like yourself, who want to work from home and be their own boss. I've been in your shoes, just starting a blog, and I compiled everything I learned the hard way into one easy to follow course so you can have a successful startup in no time!
BONUS #1: PRINTABLE CHEAT SHEETS
I'm including cheat sheets with easy to follow strategies that will help advance you to the next level. And checklists to make sure you don't miss any key element.
BONUS #2: BLOG PLANNING CALENDARS
Use this blog planner to keep the balance between family, your current commitments and your new blog.
BONUS #3: TEMPLATES FOR YOUR NEWSLETTER
This is one of my favorite bonuses. Talk to any experienced blogger and you will quickly learn the huge benefit of what we call an "opt-in" freebie. It's a tool that will help 10x your email list (and therefore your income) by giving your subscribers something free for subscribing.
You also gain even more trust with your reader by offering this thank you gift. To make the process of creating this freebie painless for you, I had my designer create three gorgeous templates for you to use to maximize your newsletter (and passive income) growth.
I'll walk you through exactly what to put on them too.
BONUS #4: PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP
This is the one my students are most excited about and I know you will love as well! When you enroll as a student you have access to a exclusive student-only Facebook group. This is where you get to mastermind, network, ask questions, brainstorm, and connect with other bloggers who are just as committed as you!
BONUS #5: 30 DAYS OF CONVERTKIT FREE
Those who follow my blog closely, know how much I love ConvertKit and what a huge game-changer it was in my business. It's a newsletter service that allows for you to use the same advanced tools that all the major business out there use, but without the time-consuming learning curve.
A webinar is included in the course that will walk you through all the best ConvertKit strategies.
BONUS #6: BLOG POST CHECKLIST
I'm also giving you an exclusive blog post checklist, the exact same checklist I use for each of my blog posts before I hit publish.
