Training Academy

The hardest part of blogging is getting started. 

It’s so easy to over-analyze. There’s so much information out there, it can seem overwhelming. Our blog is here to help you streamline that information, and give you the basic tools necessary to know how to start a blog the right way.

If you’re looking to move even faster, however, our coaching services are designed to help you do so. Each of our courses is broken digestible pieces with the end goal of helping you make money blogging as quickly as possible. 

Let’s take a look at the five W’s of our Blog to Scale Training Academy:

Who?

All of our academy classes are direct consultations with our Founder, Kris HughesKris works one-on-one with all of our Blog to Scale academy clients to help them learn how to start a blog the right way and make money blogging. 

What?

Our academy is made up of courses that mirror the core concepts you’ve learned on our blog, including learning how to start a blog, building out a world-class content strategy, developing your content marketing strategy, and finally, make money blogging.

The courses are designed to be taken in sequence to rapidly escalate your timeline to traffic growth, but any course can be taken one-off (and out of sequence) if you’re looking to dig in on a particular subject.

We also offer retainer services for the entire academy of courses, where you’ll receive guaranteed days and times that match your schedule and are consistent from one week to the next with no exceptions. This is a great option if you’re looking to lock in a set schedule, and are serious about moving quickly.

To get things started, we conduct a free, one-hour consultation to see where you are in your blogging journey to set the course for our time working together. 

From there, we dig in, at a pace and speed you desire, and within the budget you have available to use.
