Back in 2012, I was stuck in a job that no longer made me happy. I longed for more freedom.
Freedom trading time for dollars; freedom to take the time off to help friends and family in need; freedom to take more road trips with my dogs; and freedom to take a sunny afternoon off to hike with my dogs even if it was in the middle of the week.
2012 was the year I took the leap to turn my blog into a business and to regain control over my time and priorities. It’s the year I got off the hamster wheel. The year I started living the life the way I imagined instead of the way society told me I should.
Despite the warnings and scowls I received from confused family and friends, I forged a path forward. I made a lot of mistakes and learned valuable lessons as I went.
I was able to grow my income to replace what I made at my corporate job and then some. And I did this without working 16 hour days!
My life is more enjoyable, fulfilling, and fun than I could even fathom when I felt trapped in a career path that no longer fit who I was or what I wanted. I have to pinch myself on a daily basis.
I want that for you too. Which is why I have created a group coaching program to help you get there.
Introducing the Blog Business Incubator!
The Blog Business Incubator is for bloggers with some experience who want to earn a full or part-time income from their efforts.
Using my experience and proven methods, I will teach you how to improve your SEO to increase your visibility in search, how to get the most traffic from Pinterest with the least amount of effort, and how to run your blog like a business.
This is an exclusive opportunity to work with me in a group setting for 6 hours for less than the cost of one 1 hour private coaching session.
In order to make sure everyone has an opportunity to get their questions answered, the group size will be limited to 20 people.
This is NOT an ongoing group coaching program. The only time it will be offered in 2021 is right now. There are currently no plans to offer it again in the future.
Why Should You Listen to Me?
I started a hobby blog 10 years ago and have since grown it to 170k sessions a month.
Along the way, I learned a lot about what makes a successful blog, how to think like a business owner, and what was important for growing my traffic (and, more importantly, what wasn’t!).
I used my skills and knowledge to start a new niche blog in 2019 and grew it to 60k sessions within 9 months without paying to promote it. The blog is still growing and, currently, 80% of the traffic comes from SEO and 20% from Pinterest.
I purchased a pet blog in the beginning of 2020 and, just by tweaking a few things and improving a few articles, I grew the traffic enough to qualify for Mediavine ads last week.
Those are just the quantifiable reasons to work with me. They aren’t even the most important reasons you should consider this incubator program.
I love to devour information on best practices, and technical aspects of things, and have a passion for distilling that information down into an easy-to-understand format (WITHOUT losing the value of it).
I was told by an instructor once that, “I’m pretty sure you could teach physics to a 3rd grader”.
I regularly receive feedback from coaching clients like, “Wow. I’ve heard similar information a hundred times but it didn’t make sense until now.”
Not only can I share concepts with you in an easy-to-understand way, but I will save you time because I’ve already sorted through the informational noise for you.
What You Will Learn
In the Blog Business Incubator I’ll teach you what I did to put me on track to break the 6-figure income threshold this year.
During the 12 weeks, you will learn:
- What it takes to turn your blog into a business that generates a part or full-time income
- How to set your blog up for SEO success
- How to perform keyword research for no or little cost
- My process for creating blog post based on keywords you can rank for
- How to optimize your blog posts for discovery in search
- How to get the most traffic from Pinterest in the least amount of time
- The various options for making money and which ones are best in the short and long term
- How to build your authority in a certain topic and why it’s important
“If you are on the fence, I definitely recommend this course. Jessica is a rare find – she knows her stuff and she knows how to teach! You’ll be so much more empowered to get readers to your site!” – Rebecca Sanchez, The Pet Lifestyle Guru
How Will It Work?
We will meet virtually twice a month for 3 months starting in March 2021.
During these 60-minute group coaching sessions, approximately 30 minutes will be guided learning on a specific topic. The last half of the meeting will be an open Q&A where you can clarify that information and discuss your sticking points.
Because I want to maximize our in-person time together, I may assign a small amount of preparation homework to be completed before each session.
For example, I may send you a 30-minute video walking you through one of my processes or assign some reading to give the next presentation some context.
You will have access to an exclusive Facebook group where you can post additional questions in between our virtual meetings, ask for support, and celebrate your successes with other people who are on their way to turning their blog into a business.
What Does It Cost?
Becoming a member of my Blog Business Incubator for 3 months is $297 USD.
The fee can be paid all at once or it can be made in 3 monthly payments of $99.
But, wait! There’s More!
I’ve always wanted to say that 🙂
The first 10 people who sign up and pay in full will receive a 30-minute private coaching session that can be used at any time during the 3 months period.
Everyone who enrolls in the Blog Business Incubator will receive an exclusive 25% discount on private coaching sessions if used during the 3-month period.
