The Blogcademy Online
One weekend to transform your business.
Your blog is your calling card - What does it say?
Do You Dream About...
We hear you, and we understand. Having the freedom
to run your life on your own terms is the modern dream,
and it's a dream we're living.
But The First Step To Living The Life You Want
Is Honesty. So It's Time To Be Truthful.
Do You Feel...
- Stuck in an almighty rut, paralysed by a fear of the unknown?
- Baffled by online jargon, and perplexed by all the technical terminology?
- Like there is a story inside you that's aching to be told?
- Desperate to discover your unique voice, and anxious to know whether your story is even worth sharing?
- Like an outsider? Do you find it difficult to find people who "get you"?
- Unclear about what you're trying to create online, and how to find your audience?
- Like you're not sure what the point of a blog is? Are you ready to throw in the towel and delete all your social media accounts?!
- Unsure about what the next steps of your blogging trajectory should be?
Don't worry! We can help you get unstuck. We can help you make money, make waves, and live your passion. In fact, we've taught close to 1,000 women exactly that.
It's Possible To Step Up Your Blogging Game.
From Home. Right This Second.
We've spent the last two years travelling the world, teaching 1,000 women (and a few token men!) exactly how they can use their blogs to create the lifestyle and business they've always dreamed of. Now we're bringing the lessons right into your living room!
Blogging isn't just typing words on a screen: It's about learning to communicate from your heart. It's about sharing something real and grabbing the attention of your tribe, whether they're babes like you, or your ideal customer.
You might be the best at what you do, but if you're not blogging about it, you don't exist. It's essential to have a well-groomed web presence, and that's exactly what we teach.
Online Success = Real Life Success.
The only snag? Online success requires strategy, insight, technique and talent. Crossing your fingers and praying for an audience is not a strategy!
In one weekend, we cover absolutely everything you need to know to get your blog off the ground, and show you how to make it sing. It's an invaluable experience, and it changes lives.
But you're a busy babe, and we totally understand that. You may not have the flexibility in your lifestyle to take two days away from it all, and that's exactly why we created Blogcademy Online. With Blogcademy Online, you have instant access to our entire two day class, and best of all? You can watch it anytime!
Unlike other programs which limit your use, we believe that learning is forever. That's why you can watch our videos, download our worksheets, and refresh your memory as much as you want, whenever you want. Blogcademy Online gives you lifetime access.
And you won't be alone. In addition to our entire two day class, you get invited into our exclusive Facebook group which is packed with enthusiastic female entrepreneurs just like you. They will help you brainstorm, give you support, and keep you on track. That's priceless.
If you want to flourish online, this
is one class you shouldn't skip!

Don't Just Take Our Word For It...
"I don't think I learnt as much in a year at Uni as I did from The Blogcademy girls in two days. That's where I think The Blogcademy really shines, we were given real life scenarios and case studies and things were explained in perfect detail. It is blatantly obvious that the three lovely teachers know what they are talking about because they have lived and breathed it for years."
"When I initially booked in for my training, I was concerned about the cost - but I left utterly satisfied, and genuinely convinced that the time, effort and sheer volume of actual applicable, real-world advice that you packed into our little London jaunt was worth its weight in gold. The result: I feel so well-equipped with the guidance I need to take my blog to lofty, Eiffel Tower-ish heights, and invigorated and energized to get my butt into gear and do it!"
"Everything you've ever read about The Blogcademy is true. It does change your life. You do walk away feeling overwhelmed with excitement and inspiration. It is totally fucking fabulous. Gala, Kat and Shauna are just as magical as you think they are. And they have the capability and drive to match the exceedingly gorgeous sparkle that seems to trail behind them wherever they go."

If you don't know where you're going, how will you know when you get there? We'll go through your blogging business plan in detail, covering the executive summary, vision, market and marketing, operations, team, and finances.

Why do you need to know who your readers are? We'll help you to define exactly who they are, which makes creating content so much easier!

Why do you need one? We also talk about the key factors that distinguish a successful blog from those that never really get any traction. How can you create content to attract a particular audience? We'll share our secrets!
6. Creating killer content.
What should you be considering when you develop content for your blog? We discuss our secret formula for posts that get reach.

Why is networking so important for bloggers and small business owners? We'll teach you how not to dread going to events or meeting new people, how to talk to people you don't know, how to be memorable (for the right reasons!), and even how to organise your own networking events.

We tell you the essential steps to creating a charismatic brand, and give you our top branding resources. What's the golden rule of branding? Just you wait!

What's a bid form? What do you need to include on an invoice? This is essential stuff that will help you get paid!
16. Income diversification.
Is it possible to make money from something other than advertising? The answer is, of course, YES! We show you how to sell your own services or products on your blog, discuss writing for, or getting featured in, magazines and newspapers, and talk about digital products: what they are, how you can create them, and why you should sell them! We also cover how to get a book deal, and the resources you'll need to get there!
17. Image usage.
Can you just use any old photo? Definitely not! We share our sources for finding imagery for you to use on your blog or website, as well as show you how to credit the photos you use, and how to find original photo sources so your blog is as beautiful as you are!
It's A Lot Of Information, Sure. But Best Of All?
The Blogcademy Works.
Our blogcadettes have gone on to raise massive amounts of capital, start their own businesses, get sponsored for overseas travel, and eke out a name for themselves in a competitive online world. You can, too. It all starts with knowledge.
This Course Is A Good Fit For You If:
- You can't attend our live workshop, either because your lifestyle doesn't permit it, the timing isn't right, or you live in the outer reaches of Mongolia!
- You prefer to learn at your own pace. You like being able to replay lessons, fill out worksheets under your own steam, and generally do things - in the words of The Princess Bride - "as you wish".
- You're an impatient learner, and you want to get right to the good stuff! With Blogcademy Online, you have the ability to skip right past the lessons that don't feel relevant right now (and you always have the opportunity to go back to them later).
- You simply enjoy being in your pyjamas too much to come to a live class!
