You were left a blank slate when you first started. So you ask yourself, should I monetize or work on traffic with my blog? It is like the proverbial chicken or the egg problem?
How or where do you start?
Before this program, I knew how to build website for some of my clients as a tech consultant, but I didn’t know about SEO, email, or internet marketing.
I bump into Clickbank University 2.0, and thought it would change my luck, so I quickly signed-up for the monthly plan of $47.
Some sections were block off, like if you were on your third week, section week five was blocked off. I didn’t like this, and knowing me I liked to devour information. Also they had a section for Facebook marketing, too advanced for a beginner, so I quickly got my refund and skip out of the program in my second month.
I felt the program directors were looking out for their best interest and not mine, with so many upsell, it could get expensive for a beginner, and I found some of the course content were outdated and you could be found free and available content on Youtube.
I found Alex to be transparent and honest, and him and Lauren gave a lot of free content on their blog Create & Go. They talk about their trial and tribulation of running a Health and Fitness blog Avocadu.
For months, I’d been following Alex with his channel. He kept making more money with his blog. Back in July 2017, Create and Go made $25,904.67
from the comfort of their home, that was when I finally left the hospital recovering from a stroke. Four months ago, their blog bought in $75,336.84 while traveling to Lisbon, Portugal.
And, last month of January 2018, they made their highest ever with a whopping $144,166.18
But, it all didn’t began this way and they struggle in the beginning for four months with absolutely zero. A major breakthrough was when they finally made $172.82 as of January 2016.
So their blogging adventure is fairly new.
Even though, they gave a lot of free and available resources, I wasn’t buying into the hype and tried to find free resources on the web where I could implement quickly.
Only click on it if you want to lose weight. I earn a commission if you buy, but at no extra cost to you.
Anyhow, I completed the “Make Money Blogging for Beginners” program. I learned a lot and it gave me newfound confidence about blogging in general. The course outline was well structure and organize, easy to follow for a beginner like me.
Here’s a warm and honest welcome by Lauren and Alex.
Lauren taught users on how to use Canva and create a stunning Pinterest pin. Discovered what it means to be searchable and shareability? See why Alex mentioned “Pinterest is like a dumb Google.”
Here Alex gave class an overview of Youtube traffic.

I wouldn’t say that this course is perfect. It is near from perfect.

Nevertheless, I found Lauren and Alex to be real and genuine. I would had paid 10x for this course. They were not pushy sales people and truly care about your success. After all, they started where you are right now.
