No program works unless you do. If you’re expecting Elite Blog Academy, or anything else to magically solve your problems, grow your blog, or make you money the moment you register, please do NOT sign up. Our products are designed to show you the steps you’ll need to take to grow a successful, profitable online business, but YOU will still need to take those steps.
Our products are not some “get rich quick” program, nor do we offer some top-secret formula or magic bullet that promises untold riches with no effort on your part. Plus, we actually care that you complete and implement the material provided in the course. That’s why upon registering you must agree to complete the assignments and to actually do the work, in the order it is prescribed.
Please also be aware that there is no guaranteed timeline for growing a successful business. The speed at which your business grows will depend on a variety of factors, many of which we cannot predict. That said, we do know that our most successful students are the ones who keep moving forward and refuse to quit or to compare their progress to others.
PERSONAL USE POLICY
When you purchase Elite Blog Academy or any of our other products, you understand that you are purchasing a license to use the site for your own use.
Sharing access to Elite Blog Academy, the Product Launch Playbook or Product Launch Playbook Academy, or any of our paid products is NOT allowed and is a breach of our terms and conditions.
Your access may not be shared or transferred. If any employee of RSO, Inc. finds that students are sharing access, purchasing the course for multiple users, or has made any offers or agreements to do such, their access to EBA will be immediately revoked, you will forfeit your payment, and you will be liable for damages to Ruth Soukup and Ruth Soukup Omnimedia Inc. Please respect the proprietary nature of this information.
EBA 4.0 REFUND POLICY
We know that EBA works when you do the work. That said, if you complete the course and have not seen an improvement in your online business, you may request a full refund of your base (Silver level) tution. Please be aware that if you purchased our Gold or Platinum packages, you are still only eligible for a refund to your base tuition, as those packages include additional resources and options that are non-refundable.
In order to be eligible for a refund to your base tuition to Elite Blog Academy, you must submit your completed homework for all 36 assignments by 365 days from your purchase date. You can send your fully completed assignments to firstname.lastname@example.org. This should include screenshots of your before and after blog design, analytics, and income reports.
If you choose our payment option, please be aware that this is NOT a subscription; instead, you are choosing to split your one-time payment into three. Please be aware that if you choose this option, your access to the course will be limited to the first three units (1st module) until you have paid in full.
We know that if you do the work, you will achieve results in your blogging business and your life. We’re challenging you to think differently, to behave differently, and to become the blogger you’re meant to be.
You can’t and WON’T get results by osmosis or by chit-chatting with other EBA members. You must do the work. We cannot emphasize this strongly enough. YOU must do the work. You MUST do the work. You must do the WORK. We put a tremendous amount of time and energy into this program. You need to match that energy. We have a zero tolerance policy for tire kickers or people with outrageous expectations, or who spend copious amounts of time complaining and very little actually getting their hands dirty.
Success in this program requires that you take consistent, focused action.
- Take it slow. Don’t try to rush through the each unit as quickly as possible, or to watch all 12 unit videos in one sitting. There is no cliff notes version of this course, and there is no secret formula that you are missing. If you want it to work, you have to DO THE WORK. These units are intended to be digested slowly, one at a time, over a period of time. At the bare minimum, you should give yourself a week to complete each unit, but truthfully some units may take longer to get through and to get the most benefit from. Don’t underestimate the huge amount of information you are going to be receiving. I have broken it down into bite size pieces to make it manageable and to give you a plan of attack, but that doesn’t mean you should skim or rush. You will need time to soak it all in and to make it work for you.
- Don’t skip ahead. Resist the urge to skip over the “boring” fundamentals because you are eager to get to the “good stuff.” I promise you, it is ALL good stuff, and the fundamentals are just as important—if not more important—than everything you will learn later on. These course units are intended to be followed in order, because each new unit builds on the previous ones.
- Complete ALL your course assignments. The thirty-six assignments in this course were not chosen at random, or invented just to add bulk. Each one has a purpose, and, like the course units themselves, each one is intended to build upon the previous one. That means if you skip one, you will be hindering your progress, and you will probably just need to go back and do it anyway. The bottom line is that you can’t expect Elite Blog Academy to magically work for you. You need to do the work. If you’re looking for an easy way to make money, or to just copy and paste someone else’s ideas, or follow some cookie cutter program to blogging success, this is not the program for you.
- Remember that this course is here to make your blog better, and sometimes change can be hard, or even a little painful. And don’t forget that what you get out of this course will depend on what you put into it. No one can do it for you!
PRODUCT LAUNCH PLAYBOOK ACADEMY REFUND POLICY
Like all our products, the value in Product Launch Playbook Academy comes from your implementation of the strategy and techniques that we share in the course.
In order to be eligible for a refund to your base tuition to Elite Blog Academy, you must submit your completed homework for all 12 assignments by 180 days from your purchase date. You can send your fully completed assignments to email@example.com. This should include screenshots of your work and analytics.
If you choose our payment option, please be aware that this is NOT a subscription; instead, you are choosing to split your one-time payment into three. Please be aware that if you fail to make your payment, your access to the course will be immediately revoked and you will be banned from taking any other courses in our company.

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. copyright law.

Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon EBA actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to EBA a counter-notice. All notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. EBA’s Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org

EBA 4.0 Community Guidelines
We require all members of EBA to read the terms of this Confidentiality Agreement and Code of Conduct, and agree to abide by them before acceptance into the EBA Facebook Community.
The purpose of these agreements are to protect the privacy of the material presented in EBA 4.0, as well as maintain the integrity of the group and its members.
Knowing that everyone has agreed to the terms will make it easier for us to elaborate on content freely in the Facebook Group, Live Q&A sessions, webinars, material shared/offered, training, and any other means of communication with members of EBA 4.0.
IF YOU DO NOT AGREE…
If you do not agree to the terms in this Confidentiality Agreement you will be voluntarily choosing to not participate in the EBA Facebook Community portion of the EBA Course.
IF YOU DO AGREE…
All information you hear and or receive within EBA 4.0 will be considered Confidential Information unless the subject of that information clearly states otherwise. This information may be personal or business.
You agree that you will not disclose any of this Confidential Information to anyone who is NOT a member of EBA 4.0.
EBA 4.0 GROUP CONFIDENTIALITY AGREEMENT

CODE OF CONDUCT
The Elite Blog Academy™ 4.0 Facebook Community is your space to connect, create, share, and inspire. It’s up to us to keep the EBA Community a safe, accepting and encouraging group for everyone, so please read the Code of Conduct below:
- BE KIND.
We have a zero-tolerance policy for negativity, bullying, drama, gossip, or toxic energy. Encourage and support your fellow EBA 4.0 members. While a healthy discussion is encouraged, your words should be chosen carefully and spoken with love and respect.
Please work hard to make sure that no one in our community feels unwelcome or judged; treat everyone with kindness, love, patience, and respect. If you disagree or have an opposing viewpoint to share, do it with respect, honor, and from a place of compassion.
Spirited debate about ideas or concepts is awesome, personal attacks are not. If you can’t be kind, be quiet. Violation of this rule is grounds for immediate and permanent removal from the group.
- DON’T TRASH TALK.
This is a no trash talking zone about Ruth, Team RSO, Elite Blog Academy, or anyone else. We don’t put anyone down, be it other products, programs or people. This applies to issues with other 4.0 members as well.
Do not create drama by stating “A certain person did X and I’m so upset” or “Someone in this group did Y, that wasn’t cool.”
If you have an issue or grievance – either with the program, or each other, bring it directly to the party you have an issue with, and/or write directly to our team at: email@example.com.
- BE GENEROUS.
Give more than you ask. Share what you’re working on, but keep a larger emphasis on sharing support, wisdom, and encouragement. Think 3:1. Give 3 times more support, insight, and encouragement than you ask for.
- DON’T SPAM, MASS MAIL, OR VIOLATE PRIVACY.
Never email or contact other members without their permission, or, if you have a business or blog, add people to your newsletter list. Violating this is grounds for immediate removal. If in doubt, email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re always here to help finesse any situation; better safe than sorry.
- NO PROMOTIONS.
Do not post promotional links, including affiliate links in the group. This includes links to your free and paid products, affiliate links to other courses, or any other items that you may make an income on. If you have a link that you’d like to post, please contact one of the group admins before posting. All promotional links and posts will be removed. Repeated posts are grounds for removal from the Facebook Group.
- DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE.
If you decide to hire anyone or create any contractual relationship (verbally or written) with someone you’ve met through The Elite Blog Academy™ 4.0 Facebook Community you do so at your own risk.
Please do your due diligence and always get clear, written contracts and service agreements in place. While we love to believe everyone in the world is honest and ethical, that’s just not the case. Ruth Soukup Omnimedia, Ruth Soukup, and all other members of the RSO team do not vouch for or endorse any member of the Community, and we are not responsible for any loss of revenue, damages, breach of contract, or any other unfavorable circumstance as a result of that relationship.
By adopting this Code of Conduct, EBA 4.0 members commit themselves to fairly and consistently applying these principles to every aspect of participating in this group.
Members who do not follow the Code of Conduct may have their membership revoked.
This Code of Conduct applies both within project spaces and in public spaces when an individual is representing the project or its community.
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by contacting email@example.com.
All complaints will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances. Members are obligated to maintain confidentiality with regard to the reporter of an incident.
The EBA 4.0 Facebook group is offered as a bonus to supplement EBA, and Ruth Soukup Omnimedia reserves the right to terminate the Group at any time, without cause or notice.
