From Newbie to Go-Getter

Of her time in Elite Blog Academy, Jennifer Roskamp says:

“I started EBA within a few months of beginning to blog because I wanted to start off on the right foot. Now that I’ve completed the course, I have a plan to follow — step-by-step — instead of aimlessly wandering and I have obtained the confidence needed to keep moving forward. I know how to grow my audience, build a brand, market myself, create products, start earning money, and fulfill my business goals. I also have the additional bonus of being able to revisit the steps any time I need to.

After almost 11 months of blogging, I am averaging 80,000 page views a month.  Since I have started applying what I’ve learned, I’ve also created a book that is being sold on Amazon. I have two other products in the works as well. However, the most important piece was being given the confidence to just do it, to step out of my comfort zone, and to view my blog as a business. Making that mental shift was huge for me.

Every day I ask myself what I can do to build my business, and then I just throw spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. When I figure that out, I alter it slightly and then do it again.I think this would have been to scary to me to try had I not had the overall plan and steps that EBA provides.

It is such an awesome program, and I am so grateful to Ruth for her transparency, willingness to mentor and to teach other bloggers. It is such a great mission and the program is done right!”
