Finally, Online Business Training That Starts From Scratch, Doesn't Skip Any Steps & Goes In Order.

Plain-English training and personal support so you can learn the business and tech skills to finally build your dream online business. All in one place.

What is THE LAB?

THE LAB is the training, support, community and coaching platform of the Blog Marketing Academy. It is where the action happens. When you have a PRO Membership in THE LAB, you will have full access to everything. That includes the full business course library, the tech library, the Roadmap, training workshops, office hours sessions, downloads, templates... all of it. 

Whether you need help starting from scratch, figuring out your growth strategy, or help with the software and tools of the trade... the business and tech help you need will be found inside THE LAB as a PRO member.

How Does It Work?

Put simply... 

Plain-English Business Training + Walkthroughs On The Tech + Loads Of Personal Support

The PRO Membership in our LAB platform will unlock every single course in our library, broken down into two sections: Business and Tech.

The main course library has every course we have aimed to help you grow your business... from building your list, putting together your overall email marketing strategy, creating offers, creating products, building your membership site... you get the idea. 

The new Tech Library is for our courses on the software tools of the trade, including Wordpress, plug-ins, email platforms, sales platforms. and making it all work the best for you.

We've got the Roadmap which is aimed to walk you through our library in an order which makes sense... rather than throwing you into the deep end to figure out where to start.

And, of course, you've got the direct, personal support. Direct from me (David). Whether it be via the Community, the office hours, the workshops, or the Help Hotline... it is NEVER difficult to get the individualized answers you need. I've even been known to record private videos for members.

Will It Work For ME?

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).

The PRO Membership in THE LAB is where I go all out to help my students grow their businesses. Whether they're just starting out or are further along in the game. Whether they're technically inclined or not. 

THE LAB is not about "business opportunity" or hyped-up crap. This is meant for people who want to create real businesses... the kind that can last and stand the test of the time. The kind where you're willing to work, but want to use the internet and technology to scale and still be able to live life on your own terms (even if it isn't in an RV ;) )

If you want to create a true value-based business and help people either through affiliate marketing, your own courses, a membership site, coaching, or even a service... THE LAB was built for you.

What you're about to find out is that your membership in the Blog Marketing Academy LAB is your ticket to an ever-growing support network. It isn't just about online training. It is about much more. I want you to feel like family.

Getting into THE LAB I thought I was going to go through a training on how to build a business through blogging and found it far more. I'm more excited after this first training then I was in signing up in the beginning. I would say anyone that wants to bring balance while building their business seeing wins every step of the way needs to join BMA.

The Online Business Roadmap Walks You Through Everything, Step By Step, Starting From Scratch

The Lab's unique step-by-step Roadmap to guide you through everything that you need to do to start, grow and scale your online business... starting from scratch. Always know what to work on, in what order... and have plenty of guidance along the way.

Direct, Personal Support. Direct From David And The Community. You Will Never Be Alone.

We offer more support than pretty much any member community out there. It begins with daily, personal involvement from me (David). I answer ever member email personally. I sometimes send video answers. I get to know many of my members on a first-name basis.

As a member, you will be able to access The Help Hotline. The Hotline can be used for technical support on the tools you're using (which is usually better and more personal than the support that comes with those tools), getting advice on tool selection and integrations, or even just general questions and advice on your niche, an idea, a lead magnet, a landing page, etc.

We also have a supportive member community - inside a distraction-free environment. 

Live Office Hours Sessions And Live Workshop Trainings

Our Office Hours Sessions are live, interactive Q&A sessions where no question or request goes unanswered. Whether it be a question or a request for feedback, you will get the answer you need. You can also pre-submit requests in case you cannot attend live. All sessions are recorded and indexed for easy reference.

Our LAB Workshops are roughly an hour long, highly actionable, and designed to keep you informed on the latest strategies.

Live, In-Person BootCAMPs - Combining Work And Lifestyle Into The Perfect Mix

Forget the big conferences with their multiple tracks, Powerpoints and overbearing crowds. We're going to meet in a more intimate, hands on and relaxed atmosphere... and make some real, tangible progress on your blog and online business.

The LAB BootCAMPs are small group events. More like mastermind sessions. You won't just walk out with some notes, but we'll get hands on. Direct, personal training and support from David. And you'll walk out with actual work accomplished and a concrete plan of action.

Plus A Number Of Additional Member Perks...

  • Transcripts and audio downloads for training courses, making "on the go" training easier.
  • The LAB VAULT - our library of downloadable shortcuts such as worksheets, templates, swipe files and more.
  • The Black Book - our growing rolodex of tools and plug-ins to make your life easier as you grow your business

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between this and the free LAB membership?

We do offer a free, basic membership level in the LAB. If you buy any course independently, you will get that account. We also now use it for distribution for our lead magnets across this site. The free member level is highly limited and only provides access to a few, specific things. All of the content reserved for full members is locked down. When you sign up for the LAB via this page, you will be getting a fully unlocked LAB account and everything inside our LAB training portal will be unlocked for you instantly.

Will this work for me if I'm starting from scratch?

Absolutely. In fact, starting from scratch is perfect. It is your opportunity to start from square one - with Phase 1 of the Roadmap - and simply go in order. You have the opportunity to get dialed in on the things which really matter... and avoid going off into the weeds like so many people usually do when they try to figure out how to do it all by themselves.

How often do you release new content?

Typically, we are releasing new course material (either an update or a new one) each month, a workshop each month, and one office hours per month. Very shortly, we're looking to speed up the schedule for workshops and office hours - and perhaps doing some member challenges.

What skills do I already need to get the most out of the LAB?

Simply the willingness to learn and the willingness to do the work. There are no pre-requisites. THE LAB is very well suited to beginners. There are no stupid questions. In fact, often it is the "stupid questions" that are the most helpful to members and helps make sure I stay grounded and make exactly what is most helpful to you.

Do I need to be technical with Wordpress to make this work?

No. We've got some basic Wordpress training inside THE LAB. I take care to keep things as simple as possible when it comes to tech recommendations. And don't forget, the LAB has all the support you'll ever need. I've been known (many times) to record private walk-through videos just to show members how to do some particular thing. I'm good at the tech stuff, and I love to help out. I'm always here.

What if I want to cancel? Am I locked in?

You are never under any contract. You can cancel any time you want. You're always in control.

Will this work if I want to do affiliate marketing?

Sure. There are a few things you may adjust along the way, but the overall model we're building together can work just as well if you are using affiliate products instead of your own.

What happens if I am still unsure about my niche?

Don't worry, we've had many members join us who are exactly in the same boat. We've got several courses inside THE LAB aimed directly at the very beginning phases. Often, the thought process you'll go through as you go through those courses will provide some "aha moments" to firm up your market ideas. But, know this... my goal is to keep you from wasting a ton of time blindly pursuing some niche idea that might not ever work out. I'm here to guide you through it.

Can I upgrade to the annual plan at a later time?

Of course. Just contact us and we'll help you upgrade at any time.

Do you offer the option for a lifetime membership?

Can I get one-on-one coaching and support for my project?

Your LAB membership comes with multiple options for support, including the office hours, the Help Hotline, the LAB Community Forum, and more. For many members, these support options are plenty. If you would like to do a strategy call 1-on-1, you will have the option to purchase strategy call credits inside your account at a member-exclusive discount. While coaching calls are not included with membership, the discount provided to LAB members makes direct, personal coaching much more affordable than you will ever find anyplace else.

Will you help me build/fix my website?

You can get tech support via the normal, built-in support channels of THE LAB. If you really need direct, hands-on work, that option is available at an additional charge. Just like coaching calls, you can purchase Tech Service Credits inside your account at a member-exclusive discount. You can redeem those credits to have "done for you" work done on your Wordpress site.

Is all the content available right away or is it time-released (drip fed)?

You get access to everything that is currently released right away. You don't have to wait for things to be released to you. Just jump in and start. Of course, new material is being created or updated on an ongoing basis and that is released into the LAB as soon as it is ready and available to all members at once.

I am not 100% sure if THE LAB is right for me. Do you offer a trial?

I am not currently offering a trial membership. But, I don't think that's really a problem considering that:

  • Up above, there is a full behind-the-scenes video that shows you what's inside THE LAB
  • You have a 30-day money back guarantee. Which is pretty much the same as a 30-day trial, considering you can get your money back if you don't like what you find for some odd reason.
  • You can join for as little as $29 on this page. In the scheme of things, that's not much of a risk. :)

Once I become a member, where should I start?

Most people simple go to THE ROADMAP and begin with Phase 1. You can totally self-pace and skip around through the training, but the Roadmap is designed specifically to provide the pathway so you'll never feel aimless or confused on what to do next.

A Word From Dave

I can't wait to welcome you into THE LAB and get to know you. After you fill out the new-member questionnaire, I'll be sure to reach out and introduce myself.

One thing to know about THE LAB is that I try to make it as personal as possible. Unlike some, this isn't a big numbers game to me. There are enough companies out there that treat you like a number. Not here. You will find this to be a personal, friendly experience.

And keep in mind... it isn't just about the training that's on the inside. It is about the support, too. I'm here. My job is to help you... to get you over the little speed bumps. We're in this together - all of us. That's what THE LAB is all about.

See you inside shortly.

Here's What Members Who Went Before You Have Been Saying

The BMA is a fantastic value. Such a low price for the Roadmap alone, is more than worth it. The community and the availability of David is something I would expect to have to pay much MUCH more for.

David S

I haven't even done anything outside of just starting the planning stages, but I can already tell this is going to be worth it! The "Step Into Your A Game" course by itself is worth its weight in gold; getting rid of all of those distractions and organizing my time better has already made me more productive!

Jessi W.

Getting into THE LAB I thought I was going to go through a training on how to build a business through blogging and found it far more. I'm more excited after this first training then I was in signing up in the beginning. I would say anyone that wants to bring balance while building their business seeing wins every step of the way needs to join BMA.

Roger House

I'm only 5 days into my training, and I already feel like my money is well-spent, even if I were to stop now. I have been inspired and am thinking more deeply about my chosen niche than I would have otherwise. I also have a clear pathway on which to walk moving forward, and that is truly priceless.

Meg Sorensen

I came to the Blog Marketing Academy with zero experience in this field and David's training has been a tremendous help in keeping me pointed in the right direction and avoiding distractions fro "shiny objects." I am so grateful I found the BMA rather than some other training program. Thanks David!

Daniel Boyer

David knows his stuff and has a gift for delivering his educational experience in a way that anyone can digest and implement. He also has a rare ability to both help you maximize your profits as quickly as possible while always stressing that the only way to do that is by providing real value to the audience you serve. David proves that integrity and profitability need not be at odds!

Alex B

This course is pretty darn incredible. I have been floundering for a couple of years. Nothing seemed to feel right. Now I have focus and information.

Teresa T.

I think the best thing about the Lab is that David has broken down a really big thing (turning a blog into a business) into it's small component parts and made it manageable and actionable. I find myself feeling in control of my progress and confident of success without the feeling of overwhelm that's plagued me for years when it comes to online business.

James G

The training in the Lab is very comprehensive but easy to follow. It really is a step by step process to setting up your blog the right way.

Paul Clarke

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!

Ranya Renee Fleysher

I just had to pause everything to congratulate you on absolutely phenomenal training program, I have never come across such a complete program. I am very excited to progress through all your programs and action tasks as I am certain it will lead me to my goals.

Anastasia P

I have been following David for several years and it just got to the point where I could no longer resist joining the Lab. David is a very patient and precise Instructor and has laid out the Blueprint for any Level of Member so as they can get their own direction.

Abi C.

David's consultation call was very friendly, informative and useful. He was happy to answer a myriad of questions honestly and with a great depth of knowledge and experience.

Don't hesitate to book a consultation call. It will open many doors and give you a fresh perspective on your blog and/or business.

Rury Galbraith

David and The Lab are encouraging me to walk a path toward getting myself set up as an online entrepreneur. It is so important to me to have a path, "The Roadmap" to follow and step-by-step start creating a dream life.

Fiona K

I've been blogging for almost 4 years now, and I can say that this course is, without a doubt, the best course for making money with a blog.

Joe Liverman

I love that this is laid out step by step. I have been working in online marketing for quite a while but found myself mostly trying to piece together steps as I went... only to discover that there was always something important missing. Thanks for this!

Jan M

Blog Monetization Academy is a fantastic way for beginners in internet business to get a handle on how things should be done. Not only that, but most importantly, the structured approach of it allows you to get up to speed on things much quicker than if you'd just search for bits and pieces here and there on the internet. The action plans that teach things like how to create lead magnets, setting up profit funnels etc. are great - actionable and fluff-free! Just what you need starting out. The community is the best part of it all though. There's a great group of active LAB members helping each other out all the time. Finally, David is very generous with his input and time to the community and individual questions on e.g. action plans, and really cares for his members.

Mikael Eriksson

I've spent the past 5 years doing a bit of this and a lot of that with no real plan in mind. BMA has changed that! It's given me the clarity and step-by-step strategy to finally turn my blog into a profit stream for my coaching business. Thanks, David!

Jan M

David teaches clearly and in a way that is so encouraging! I've learned so much from him! He goes straight to the point: simple and effective. By following his advice I've reach a point I could never reached so fast if I was on my own. He and all the community of members are so supportive!

Rita G

The lab is awesome! It is great for anyone beginning or even a seasoned website entrepreneur starting a new business. I have especially appreciated the road map for keeping me on track as far as the next thing to do and not getting stuck in overwhelm. Thank you David

Darlene Niemeyer

The Lab's value is unlike anything else I've ever found.

The Lab is awesome! The Lab's value is unlike anything else I've ever found. I'm building my online business on the side while I work a full-time job. My employer provides me with free access to a huge Lynda training library full of courses on online marketing, so I have experience with other programs to compare the Lab to. I can honestly say that what David is offering is far superior!

Parker S.

Amazing! The most comprehensive tool to develop your blog. I wish I found it 2 years ago.

Just been here for one week and only yesterday started on a course that is mostly aligned with my current goals

Definitely worth the price. You will save so much time and energy and stress that is not even funny. I wish I joined 2 years ago, my blog would be miles ahead...

Artur Kot

The Lab is literally a godsend. I don't ever say that about anything, but I truly believe it. I have been knowing that I need to build an online business for a while now. I've been tutoring in person with a lot of success but have hit limits on how much I can feasibly grow my business when I only have so many hours in a day. Expanding into online offerings has been what I know I need to do. But having the motivation and even the confidence that you can do something well isn't always enough. You need coaching. You need someone who's been down the road already and is willing to share their expertise. That's David and the Lab. Obviously he is running his own business and wanting to make a living at it...but he's not "in it for the money". He's present, he's personal. He's an actual coach for his members. That's priceless. And the content is fantastic. Covering nearly everything you'd need to get a business up and running, from the quick start boot camp, to lead magnet creation, to Facebook ads, to overcoming the mind games and habits that keep people from just doing it. Join.

It's worth the investment. It will be the kick in the pants, the inspiration, AND the guidance you need to succeed. I've established a solid business growth plan. I've created lead magnets with potential. And I'm MOVING.

If you've been wandering around the internet trying to cut and paste knowledge and how-tos from all kinds of different sources...stop. Join us. The amount of value in this Lab is so worth your money. The videos and worksheets and courses alone are worth far more than the $35 price tag. Add David's personal involvement into the mix, and you've got a priceless investment that will bring doubt.

Matt Hallock

I decided to run through the Building a Content Marketing Plan training because I felt I've been missing something lately. GLAD I DID! I'm about 1/2 way through and I can't believe how much I've learned.

Chris Huff

There are so many courses in the Lab that cover even more than just blogging. As an example, the Facebook Blueprint course could be used for any type of business. The value for money when signing up for the Lab is exceptional and is far better than a lot of other courses I've seen.

Tracey C

Great product you have. No one else really seems to have put such a system like this that is structured like you have. Great job so far!

Cameron S.

This is a phenomenal program

This is a phenomenal program. I tend to be quite "airy" in my nature, "going with the flow" and enjoying whatever is next as much as possible, but it often getting me in trouble when it comes down to having real, consistent results and not constantly struggling to make something happen when I am up against a deadline. This program has helped me create a real, straight-forward plan and gave me the tools to work the plan in a way that will clearly help me realize my dreams. Thanks David.

Brandy McCanns

I’m dazzled by what David and Malika have created and I hope to do something similar within my specialty. I love the straight-forward instruction and practical way you show us what to do and how you teach from your experience. Even more impactful to me... I love how you and Malika are real, care about our experience with the Lab, and don’t leave me questioning your business motives, integrity, or sincerity. THANK YOU!!

Eddie S.

The Lab is an incredible resource. The quantity and quality of the content is definitely way above what you'll find in most online training material. The roadmap alone (to guide you through the material) is worth double or treble the price of your membership. I love David's no BS approach am delighted with the progress I'm making so far.

James G

David is a down to earth guy who tells it like it is. I really enjoy the way he's just the dude from around the corner who can tell me how to improve things in my business. It's all easy to follow, nothing too complicated, taken step by step. Well worth joining the lab.
