Traffic: How to Assess Your Traffic and Develop a Profitable Monetisation Strategy

In this session Laney will show you how to assess your traffic and determine the best mix of monetisation strategies based on your own traffic profile, including tips on how to change things up and attract more of the readers you want. Laney will interview Angela Henderson of Finlee and Me (Brisbane event) and Alexx Stuart of Low Tox Life (Melbourne event) to understand how their traffic and monetisation has evolved over time.

James successfully transferred his sales skills from the physical to the digital world, helping his customers in a non-salesy way. By demystifying 'selling', James will reveal and redefine the single most important ingredient for your blog to business success. Forget selling strategies, tricks and '50 ways to close a sale' and instead focus on helping your readers in a way that will dramatically transform your business.

Keynote: How to Stop Guessing and Make Sure Your Business Idea Will Fly With Your Audience

After building your blogging audience, no matter what size it may be, offering solutions to their problems in the form of paid products can be an amazing way to both serve your audience and generate an income at the same time. But where do you start? How do you know what products to offer, and how do you test to make sure you're not going down a path you shouldn't? Pat Flynn from SmartPassiveIncome.com will share his step-by-step process to help you understand exactly what your audience needs and how to best serve them, so that you don't have to guess and you can move forward in your blogging journey with confidence!

A Word from Our Attendees . . .

BECAUSE OF PROBLOGGER LIGHTING A FIRE UNDER ME, I'VE BEEN ABLE TO START ACHIEVING A LOT OF MY GOALS . . .

Since attending Problogger in August 2015 and setting out goals for my blog/business in general things have changed so much. Being introduced again to concepts I was simply "too busy" to put in motion, really made me think about what I could honestly accomplish if I put myself in some sort of "routine."

A GREAT EVENT YET AGAIN . . .

Having attended 4-5 times now, the Problogger conference is one of the very few non-industry specific conferences I attend each year that allows me to further my own development around my blog and business. Great job Darren and the entire team!

THANK YOU FOR THE PROBLOGGER COMMUNITY - IT TRULY IS UNIQUE IN EVERY WAY . . .

You’ve created a platform that goes so much deeper than just offering training and how-to’s, but have managed to find an incredibly precious thing that is almost too hard to put words on. It falls into my ‘unwordable’ category. 

It takes the ra-ra out of conferences and all the cringe worthy/salesy/entrepreneur/ickyness away (which could be expected) and instead, puts generosity, giving without expectation, encouragement, soul and depth in it’s place.​
