Founder. Instructor. Dude.

The Blog Marketing Academy is, in essence, a business school for blog owners. It is designed for bloggers, course creators, consultants, coaches... even small business owners. The goal is to build a blog which SELLS.

THE LAB is the training, support, community and coaching platform of the Blog Marketing Academy. It is where the action happens. 

I've had students from all kinds of niches, including natural health, personal development, business, forex trading. Even chemistry tutoring, piano tuning and playing blues guitar - in German (not kidding... his name is Christoph).

If your intention is to build a blog which forms the foundation of a real business, then that's what the Academy is all about. If you want to drive new leads and sales using content marketing, that's what we do here. If you want to use your blog to automate and scale a coaching or service business... yep, we do that, too.

In getting coaching from David, I really appreciate how he is able to point out the simple action that I could do to move the ball forward. His knowledge of the tech and management of a membership website is invaluable in offering practical, immediately applicable tips to generating more revenue or simplifying the production process. Thanks, David, for your honesty and support!

I Test And Review Tools & Software

The technology can get overwhelming, but I'm good at it. My experience as a tech blogger and web developer comes in handy sometimes. 😉 So, a big part of what I do is testing and evaluating the tools, plug-ins and software of the trade. I cut through the hype and tell you what I think and what I use personally. And, if you need help with the software side of building your business, I'm here for you.
