Start Here

Welcome to the Blog Marketing Academy. I'm David. Together, we're going to build YOU an amazing blog that will fuel the life that YOU want to live. That's our mission here.

The best way to introduce myself is with this short video which explains what I'm all about. Check it out and then I'll see you below...

Alright, watched the video? Cool. Now, if you're curious about my back story, click here to read my personal story. That's the story of how I got started (way back in 1998). Plus, some seriously weird facts about your's truly. 😉

Now, let's move into how I can best help you today.

Who The Blog Marketing Academy Is For

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.

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.

My Process Is Called The Roadmap

I create blog posts, workshops, training courses and much more. But, if all I did was create content and throw it out there, it would do nothing but add to the information overload and overwhelm already common with people trying to build online businesses.

So, I have created a map. I call it... The Online Business Roadmap.

Simply put, if you want to build a blog-based business but have no idea how to get started or what to do next, then my answer is this Roadmap.

It is broken down into 5 phases. Each phase has a specific checklist of actions to go through. Everything goes in order until you are in Phase 5. Once your business is in Phase 5, you've made it.

You can download the entire Roadmap for free. You will also get quite the resource list of blog posts on this site which are associated with each phase.

As a reminder, the ROADMAP that you just downloaded also contains a LOT of resource links from around this site... all aligned around the exact stage of the Roadmap that you are in now.

As you've seen, I have a lot here at the Blog Marketing Academy to help you reach your goals. I've been at this a long time now, so I guess I better. 😉

When you're ready to work with me more closely, I'll be here. Our training and support community is THE LAB. If you want some personal coaching and accountability, you can check out Platinum Coaching. And, if you want to meet with me in person at a live event, we're kicking off our BootCAMPs soon. And those events will be unlike anything you've likely attended before. (Hint: There will be S'mores.)

Until then... WELCOME to the Blog Marketing Academy.

And as always, never hesitate to get in touch. I like to keep things personal around here.
