The first phase of creating a successful, profitable blog is to refine your message --not just what you say, but how you want your readers to feel when they come to your site. We'll show you exactly how to refine this message of yours, until every single person who comes across your blog can tell at a glance what you are all about, and, more importantly, what they have to gain by being there.
The second phase in our EBA framework is to grow your audience. Finding people to actually read your blog can sometimes feel like a daunting prospect, but it doesn’t have to be. At ACTIVATE we’ll provide you with an armory of proven, detailed strategies for how to get your message heard and shared. You’ll never feel unsure of how to get more traffic again.
The third phase in our EBA framework is to monetize your platform. This is where blogging starts to get really fun, because it is where all the hard work you have put in starts to really pay off and multiply. But believe it or not, not all income streams are created equal, and at ACTIVATE you’ll learn exactly where to focus your efforts in order to maximize your bottom line and skyrocket your profits.
The fourth and final phase of creating a successful, profitable blog is to build your business. This is the point where you realize that you are not just a blogger, but an entrepreneur, and this is also the point at which you can really take off and begin to find massive success. ACTIVATE will show you how to work smarter, not harder, and how to build momentum that keeps you going long after you’ve completed your course work.

This is a question that comes up a lot, but part of being in business is learning to live with the feeling of uncertainty. Everyone of our ACTIVATE attendees, whether they were established bloggers or just getting started, were able to take away from the conference a personalized action plan that they could begin applying to their blogs immediately.
All that to say, no matter where you are at in your blog or your business right now, ACTIVATE will be a game-changer .
If your blog is still an idea in your head, ACTIVATE will help you gain clarity and insight, get you motivated and excited, and give you a working plan to finally get started. If you’ve been blogging for a while but struggling to gain momentum, ACTIVATE will show you exactly where you are getting stuck and exactly what you need to do next to get un-stuck. If you are already killing it with your blog, ACTIVATE will show you new possibilities you’ve probably never even considered before, and help catapult you to a whole new level of success.
No matter where you are at right now, whether you have a blog or online business, or are just thinking about starting one, you will leave ACTIVATE completely fired up, excited about the future, and with a plan in hand for how to make it happen. If you didn’t feel ready before you experience ACTIVATE, you will feel more than ready by the time you are done.
Our Pre-Conference Workshop took a deep dive into the biggest secrets of transforming your blog into a thriving, profitable and sustainable business. If you feel like you understand the basics of blogging and are now ready to focus on monetization in BIG way, this workshop is right for you.
There is nothing worse than attending a conference--whether live or virtually--and feeling like you haven’t actually gathered any practical takeaways that you can apply to your blog and business right away. Either the material covered was so basic you didn’t learn anything, or you left with so many different ideas that you felt paralyzed with what to do first.
At ACTIVATE, we were determined not to let that happen. The entire event is designed to be cohesive, practical, and—most importantly—actionable from start to finish. And every single session included at least one “ring the bell” takeaway, where you say “THAT was worth watching.” Our goal was not to give you MORE information, but to give you the RIGHT information. No fluff, no filler, just the golden nuggets you need to know to create massive success for your blog or online business.
We took all the concepts we teach at Elite Blog Academy a step deeper, so that you can have more clarity in your blogging journey, and a clear plan for moving forward. You’ll not only understand what you need to do, but also what you need to STOP doing so that every action you take is purposeful and worthwhile. Best of all, your action plan will be recorded in your very own downloadable ACTIVATE Workbook. Every single session will help you work your way through the workbook and show you how to apply what you are learning on stage to your own blogging business.
If you’d like to see the entire schedule for the main event, as well as who presented each session, you can check out our conference agenda HERE.
