Blogging courses are a plenty and many of them are large investments. Before taking the plunge you’re faced with a series of questions — Are they good? Do they teach what I’m looking for? Do they offer a refund? How can this course transform my business or blog? Is it really worth investing in a blogging course when I can just do a bunch of online research?

Here are five super-smart reasons to invest in a comprehensive blog course.
Reason #1 — Step-by-Step Guidance
There is nothing more damaging to your business than lack of motivation or no detailed plan to keep moving forward. I’ve been there. You’re exhausted, tapped out of ideas and just plain burned out. You only participate in a few Facebook groups and there isn’t a detailed plan for execution that people are sharing. You’d rather just hide in your bed and binge-watch Netflix.
While Netflix is amazing (have you watched The Crown!, so good), it’s not going to make you money or build your email list. We have to put in the hard work and it’s better if we have a step-by-step framework helping us to tackle on thing at a time instead of feeling overwhelmed.
Reason #2 — Accountability
You hear about all these mastermind groups, one-on-one coaching, and accountability partners, but you just can’t seem to find any that fit for you or your budget. You need someone to walk with you through the step-by-step plan and ensure you get it done. Netflix is always calling and if you don’t get some accountability to complete tasks, your chances of doing them ‘someday’ decrease by the minute.
One-on-one coaching can be up to $1000/month. That’s not affordable for most bloggers. Elite Blog Academy the only comprehensive blogging courses I recommend to my clients and audience, provides a structure that will keep you accountable, keep you motivated and offer ongoing support via an interactive Facebook group. For a fraction of the cost.
Reason #3 — Leadership
This is similar to accountability and needing a step-by-step plan, but slightly different. When you invest in your blog, you need to invest in the right leader. Ruth Soukup of Elite Blog Academy has a proven track record of not only leading her own team but also many of her students. Their success stories sing the praises of her kind-but-firm leadership, encouraging them to keep trying even if they are scared. Her team’s motto is ‘Do It Scared’. And she even has as podcast with that title! She lives it.
You should invest in your blog with a leader that will encourage you to take big risks in order to see a big pay off. Ruth has built that into the EBA culture.
Reason #4 — Making Money
You’ve heard the saying, you have to invest money to make money. It’s true! The first time I invested in a course, I was so nervous (hint: do it scared!) that I would be wasting my money. That course propelled me forward in my Pinterest marketing and the investment paid off ten-fold when I did the work in the course.
Several of our clients are EBA students who have exploded in growth and income. They are making six figures a year and some are on track to hit seven figures in 2019. These success stories are amazing!
Making money on your blog has the power to transform your life. The extra income can help you pay off debt, travel, fund your retirement account or tackle those Bucket List items. Invest in your blog to get a return on that investment. Money in the mattress doesn’t grow.
Reason #5 — Community
This is an odd one but let me explain. When you’re a new blogger or someone who is just transitioning your blog from personal to business, you want the chance to talk with other people. Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, knowing that someone else is in the same boat makes loads of difference to your morale.
The other part is that you can speak the same language without having to interpret. Most people outside the online work will not have a clue what you’re talking about and think you’re slightly crazy, but those within your community ‘get’ you.
The Elite Blog Academy community is strong, supportive and encouraging. I was able to witness this as a part of the EBA 4.0 filming.
A few final details about Elite Blog Academy:
- Elite Blog Academy gives you a proven framework for success that you won’t find anywhere else. The course includes everything you need to turn your blog into a successful, profitable business, from refining your message and growing your audience to monetizing your platform and building your business.
- Because EBA is designed to be self-paced, in order to do it right, you should give yourself plenty of time. Blogging is not for the faint of heart, and this course requires a willingness to buckle down and get to work. That said, for those who are willing to do the work, it also comes with a 100% money-back guarantee.
