I put Corbett Barr on this year’s list of bloggers to watch because he is brilliant. He knows how to draw a lot of attention to a new blog and sustain that interest over a long period of time.
That’s something that a lot of people struggle, including myself, so I was really excited when I heard he was developing a course on starting a blog that matters (aff. link). I was so impressed that I decided to write about it.
What is it?
How to Start A Blog That Matters is a course that will guide you through starting a blog that matters over 90 days.
You’ll start with choosing a great topic and setting up your blog and end with building your audience and spreading your influence.
Each of the 13 lessons contains a specific action plan for you to follow each week.
In addition to the lessons and videos, you’ll also get direct access to ask Corbett questions. This is a great way to pick an experts brain during the launch process.
Who is it for?
I believe that this product is for people who are in a position to leverage a launch beyond just attention. To get the most out it I would recommend:
- That you have a rough business plan for your blog. The techniques will result in extra traffic, but it may not lead to extra income unless you have distinct monetization goals.
- That you have done some basic branding exercises so you target the right audience.
Other types of bloggers, including new ones, will get a lot out of this. However, if you are in the experimenting stage of blogging you may not get a financial ROI.
Do I recommend it?
I sure do.
However, at $97, this may not be an option for a lot of you. That’s cool.
If you can’t afford this product, and you are unfamiliar with Corbett’s work, then I highly recommend you check out Think Traffic. It has enough resources to help you grow your blog and earn a modest income. You can also undertake the million dollar blog project.
