Last week I let you all know about The Elite Blog Academy Course and how it would be opening its door today, February 22nd for only a few short days.
In that time, I have received countless calls and emails asking more questions about the course and my personal success. I want to address these issues today to help you make your final decisions before it’s too late.
My blog was an outgrowth of my then coaching practice where I helped women overcome their underearning and create a healthy relationship with money. A friend had been trying to convince me for years to change my business model, but I stupidly ignored her. After spending five years caring for my mother who suffers from dementia, and trying to maintain my coaching practice, I finally realized I couldn’t keep up the demands any longer. I just didn’t have what I needed to provide so much individual attention to 20 clients a week. I wanted to continue to help people with their money issues, and blogging seemed an excellent way to accomplish this task.
I started the process and soon came to realize that I was at a serious disadvantage.
If you are a blogger, you know all too well how overwhelming it can feel to juggle the day-to-day demands of writing a blog with the big-picture strategy of creating a profitable business. I quickly came to realize I needed to find someone to guide me through the process of creating a successful blog, someone who would just tell me, step by step, what I needed to do to grow my traffic and make more money.
That is exactly what Elite Blog Academy was designed to do. So last year I decided to take a chance and enroll in the Elite Blog Academy course. So last year I decided to take a chance and enroll in the Elite Blog Academy course. I had heard some wonderful things not only about the course but about Ruth herself so I was willing to take the chance because I knew that something wasn’t working.
I am so glad I did! In the time since I started Elite Blog Academy, my blog has exploded!
One of the most significant things I learned was about Pinterest and its platform to drive traffic. I had heard of Pinterest but had no clue what to do with it. The whole section about Pinterest was a game changer for my blog. I brand all my images now, try to write captivating descriptions and am amazed at the amount of traffic I receive each month from it. It’s amazing!
The other thing I learned was that I was clueless about was SEO. Now, I’m still a bit behind the eight ball with SEO, but I am getting better and better at it. I review that Chapter pretty regularly to see what else I can garner from it to put into practice or sometimes to just give myself a little refresher. Either way, the content is there for me to utilize when I need it.
On the money side, I went from making zippo to ending out December at $4,000! My income has steadily increased over the course of the year. It came primarily from affiliate commissions and ad revenue. This year I hope to broaden my income streams to include more diversification, and I have the confidence to be able to do this because of what I learned through EBA!
I feel blessed and fortunate that I was able to be part of EBA, get to know so many wonderful fellow bloggers and get my message out to those who need it. It’s very rewarding – one of the most rewarding experiences when you open an email, and someone asks for your help and you know you can give them what they need by directing them to a blog post, sending them some additional resources or answer a question to help them with their issue. My only regret is I didn’t do this years ago. But, it came at a time that was right for me!
So is Elite Blog Academy right for you too?
It really depends.
Elite Blog Academy is for people who are committed to following the process. As a member of EBA, I’ve noticed that the thing the most successful graduates have in common is a willingness to roll up their sleeves and get to work, and to put 100% of their effort into completing the assignments in order. If the commitment isn’t there, then this is not the right program for you.
It’s also not for people who are going to insist that they’ve already heard this all before, or who are going to argue that a task seems too basic or whine that it’s too hard. It’s not for bloggers who just want to just “skip to the good stuff” picking and choosing the lessons they pay attention to, then complaining when they’re not getting results. The EBA process is designed to create success, but it only works if you are willing to commit to actually doing the work.

Elite Blog Academy is designed to be self-paced, but should not be completed in less than 12 weeks. Blogging is not for the faint of heart, and this course requires a willingness to buckle down and get to work. That said, for those who are willing to do the work, it also comes with a 100% money-back guarantee.
Anyone who completes the course and has not seen measurable results in both traffic and income growth will get your money back, no questions asked. That’s a pretty incredible promise, but it means that you’ve literally got nothing to lose.

I hope this answers any questions you might have. Bottom line – if you’re a blogger whose struggling, or you’re considering changing your business model like I did, or you just want to start blogging, Elite Blog Academy will give you the foundation to make it happen!
I can’t wait to see you on the inside of EBA 2.0!
