Tired of working so hard on your blog only to make NO money?

TURN YOUR BLOG INTO  
A SIX-FIGURE BUSINESS

WITHOUT a huge audience, spending hours on social media or a penny on paid ads, burning out, or selling your soul!

If you’re a side-hustling blogger, I don’t have to tell you how hard it is to succeed--you’ve already tried to roll up your sleeves and do it yourself! But guess what? 

 

 You’re NOT alone anymore.

You just need a better blogging strategy!

 

Spoiler alert: the answer lies in doing LESS, not more. Buh-bye burn out!

But where do you actually begin?

If done right, you CAN turn your hobby blog or passion project into a profitable business.

One that gives you freedom from overwhelm and flexibility so you can live life on YOUR terms.

Imagine if you could:

✔️ Work from home (or anywhere--Hello, location independence!)

 

✔️ Create your own flexible schedule that works for YOU and your loved ones

 

✔️Quit your miserable corporate career or day job

 

✔️ Pay off debt and student loans, buy a house and financially contribute to your family

 

✔️ Say goodbye to burnout, and create from a place of rest, not stress

 

✔️ Stop hustling! And start making passive income while you sleep

 

✔️ Build a sustainable, purpose-driven business that makes a meaningful difference in others' lives

Welcome to the Six-Figure Blog Academy!

Have you ever seen super successful bloggers or influencers and wondered,

“How the heck are they making so much money?”

Well the secret’s out. 

The Six-Figure Blog Academy is the only roadmap you need to make money blogging about what you love.

 

I went from making $0 from my blog to over $24,000 a month!

 

Today my blog makes nearly $250,000 a year,

WITHOUT selling courses or services.

WANT MORE MIND-BLOWING STATS? HOW'S THIS:


  • I spend less than 15 minutes a day on social media, and just a few hours per week creating content.

  • In 5 years of blogging, I've taken two 4-month maternity leaves and my blog still earned over $677,000.

  • I've made multiple six figures from my blog with a small email list and less than 150,000 pageviews/month!  

  • In the middle of the 2020 pandemic, I made over $42,000 from ONE SINGLE BLOG POST that I wrote 3 years ago!

This is possible for YOU, too.

 

No more stale coffee, fluorescent lights, and missing your life because you're stuck in a cube, in a job you hate, building someone else’s dream.

 

If you're looking for a way out (or even if you're just ready for a change), we've got you!

 

Remember that dream life you planned? It's here!

 

 

In the Six-Figure Blog Academy, I show you EXACTLY how to make money blogging without burning out or selling your soul. 

 

Plus, get ongoing support of an inclusive, safe and diverse online community of bloggers just like you!

- Tisha Riman, thenourishedmind.ca

“Before this course, I was kind of doing a little of everything (a lot of nothing), and feeling super burnt out. The course gave me confidence to create a more streamlined system, and helped me really start to treat my blog like a business. 6FBA has given me all the tools I need to feel like I have an actionable game plan! If you feel you've been running around in circles and not getting anywhere, this course will teach you how to build a plan that you can actually stick to!  In just 3 months, I've already doubled my blog views. I secured two brands for sponsored content, I received my first check for affiliate marketing. And I've really just seen my blog grow."

"6FBA opened an opportunity for continuity. It has opened a door when another door shut on me and I can give myself permission to take control of previous life and adapt to the new norm. After 15 days, my website is now live! Mighty thanks for the encouragement." 

 

--Minalini Lakshman, themolecularportraits.com

"After just the first day of going through the course, I signed two new brands that I had been stuck on how to word the deal with. Now, we are working together for the rest of 2019 and all year for 2020. ALL IN ONE DAY. Kate, you are rocking my world. Thank you so much. I love it so much. I really am going to recommend this to ANYONE. Thank you and you did a fantastic job at explaining every part. Even for a "not new" blogger, it was more than helpful to go back and do things I never have. I credit the success I will see soon, to you!"

 

Ashlee Rowland, simplholistic.org

“I have implemented many 6FBA strategies over the last month, which has caused my pageviews to rise by 25% and my affiliate marketing income to rise by 400%. I’ve [also seen my ad income] increase by about $100/month every month… I truly think 6FBA is one of the most — if not THE most — comprehensive courses for bloggers.

 

Kristina Todini, forkintheroad.co

Real talk: Most blogs fail.

I'm going to show you how to be the outlier.

It starts with identifying 8 common mistakes bloggers make (success killers, as I call them!):

 

 

  • You're spending too much time on social media

    Making money from your blog does not involve wasting your life on a platform you don't own. There's a BIG difference between being an "influencer" and being a professional blogger.

  • You're focused on quantity over quality.

    You may think quantity of visitors matters most, but your success depends much more on HOW you monetize your existing traffic than getting MORE traffic. Genuine connection > Impressive metrics all day, every day!

  • You're not utilizing your email list

    Do you have a welcome nurture series in place? Valuable lead magnets on your blog? A weekly newsletter that goes beyond your RSS feed? If not, you're leaving a whole lot of money on the table. 

  • You don't have passive income streams.

    Without a clear affiliate marketing strategy in place, you'll always be trading your time for dollars and constantly be chasing more followers and traffic. Bleh! 

  • You're not optimized for SEO

    If you're not using keywords properly and harnessing the power of Google and Pinterest (both of which are search engines) for your blog, you'll never get the organic traffic (no paid ads!) you need to succeed.

  • You don't treat your blog like a business.

    Still treating your blog like a hobby, not making time for it and putting everything and everyone else first because "you're not making money yet"? It's a vicious cycle and self-fulfilling prophecy. 

  • You're trying to do too many things.

    I know you’re already working so hard to make your blog a success. The solution to FINALLY making money from your blog = working LESS, not more. The key is knowing exactly what to focus on.

  • You don't have a trusted mentor or solid guidance.

    The internet is a noisy place and piecemealing together a bunch of free, fragmented advice doesn't usually result in success. Find someone who's done what you want to do, and ignore all those other conflicted voices shouting for your attention. 

LET ME BE YOUR GUIDE.


LEARN FROM SOMEONE WHO'S ACTUALLY DONE IT!

I’m a wife to Matt, a mama to Jackson (2) and Gemma (6 months), and head zookeeper to our pup, Finch, and kitties, Scout and Boo (yes, like the book!). 

 

I’m an entrepreneur, a twice-published cookbook author, a journalist with articles in over 125 publications, and host of the Success with Soul podcast. 

 

To this day, I am still in the trenches with you working on my wellness blog, Root + Revel  (read: I'm not one of those people who only blog about blogging), staying current with the latest trends, testing techniques, and finding what actually works to save you time, energy, money and mistakes! 

 

So many other “blogging experts” out there are teaching you how to sell digital products and services. But not me--in 6FBA, I'm actually teaching you how to make money BLOGGING, NOT SELLING.

 

LET ME BE YOUR GUIDE.

My superpower is making BIG profits with a small audience, and a whole lot of soul!

 

Proven strategies. Action plans you can put in place today. Solid, step-by-step advice with all the tools and resources you need, and NOTHING you don’t.

 

I started at ZERO, just like you. But I devoted my first year of blogging to discovering the proverbial “secret sauce” of successful blogging — researching, testing, experimenting to find what works and what doesn’t.   

 

I made $75,000 my second year blogging, $150,000 my third,  $200,000 my fourth, and am now on track to earn over $250,000 from my blog in 2020

with less than 150,000 pageviews per month.

 

 

With my growth-based step-by-step plan, you can start making money from DAY ONE with the audience you've already built. No need to spend hours on social media trying to gain followers or using paid ads - that ain’t it, sis.

 

Ready to go from hobby to thriving business?

 

YOU can do it, TOO!

 

YOUR voice matters. You CAN say goodbye to the overwhelm, get out of decision fatigue and make your own impact on the blogosphere.

 

Let me show you how to monetize your magic!

 

 

I was overwhelmed with the amount of information online, then I found this course and decided to take a leap of faith. OMG the amount of info is endless and the more I read, the more I get excited and see hope--it's like someone holding my hand. 

Rita Duklus

“I’ve taken SO many steps from this course to build my blog, including email campaigns, opt-ins, and writing my first pitch. I started blogging 5 years ago but treated it as a passion project before this year. As a busy mom, I didn’t have time to keep taking stabs in the dark. I needed guidance and structure.”

Lindsay Mundy

My followers have grown on Instagram, Facebook, and my blog, and I have the most clicks I've ever had on my affiliate links!

 

 

 

Tanya Perri

This month I passed 150,000 pageviews, which I was not expecting at all. I also earned the most I have yet from my blog, fully replacing my teaching income!

 

 

 

Delilah Orpi

I am super duper excited to get my blog started. I had so many questions before I joined, and the information was already laid out for me, all compiled in one platform. I spent a whole year getting bits and pieces from different bloggers so I'm happy to have things laid out more organized for me!

 

I love 6FBA with the resources, support, and guidance. It has kept me busy through C-19 with what I need to do using this time productively!

 

 

 

Lufilufi Rasmussen

"If you’re looking to monetize your blog, Kate’s courses are the way to go. Everything, and I mean everything, is laid out for you to help grow your business and take things to the next level. I wish this was around a year and a half ago when I started because I had no idea what I was doing and how to work with sponsors. I recommend this course to any blogger out there looking for ways to grow."

-Natalie Cardozoprecioustimeblog.com

 

Kelsey from forkingscrumptious.com made money for the first time ever thanks to 6FBA:

 

“I LOVED every single thing about this course. Kate was able to communicate valuable information in such a direct and approachable way, as well as provided action items to hold me accountable. I have implemented quite a few strategies outlined in the course that have totally changed the direction of my business, and lit a whole new passion for the direction it’s taking. And last month, I made money for the first time ever!

Maureen, a working mom and brand-new blogger, earned back the price of 6FBA in her first 30 days as a student.

 

Did I mention she didn’t even have a blog when she started? Catch her 6FBA success story in the video below.

“I've had the idea to start a blog like this for over six years. It wasn't until I took the Six-Figure Blog Academy Course that I finally had all the tools I needed in one place and the encouragement from Kate's detailed instructions to finally take action! As a new blogger, starting from scratch felt really overwhelming--with the 6FBA framework, it finally became doable. If I didn't have 6FBA, I would not have started my blog. I'm grateful to Kate for creating such an impactful program and am excited to continue growing my site with the powerful guidance from every lesson in 6FBA! I already feel more calm, organized, and focused. And being able to start from your successful template examples is a huge time saver!"

    Check out Lisa and Amity's journey through Six-Figure Blog Academy. 

    Lisa had been blogging for 3 years, but struggled to earn consistent income. After going through 6FBA, Lisa had her first six-figure year!

    Amity finally started approaching her blog with a business mindset after 6FBA and her email list grew alongside affiliate revenue and traffic!

    When I first started the conception process of starting a blog, I was thinking small. I thought I would use my blog as a vessel to add to my credibility as a therapist. Because of this, getting started was my biggest obstacle. Then I stumbled across 6FBA and I never realized I could monetize this process for myself in ways bigger than my therapy practice. 6FBA gave me the tools to start and keep my momentum starting from the first exercise with the least amount of resistance.

    Aya Porte

    Before 6FBA the idea of a blog seemed like a fun notion - but not a way to truly make an income. 6FBA taught me the endless potential when it comes to monetizing blogs and has helped me diversify my income in amazing ways I am incredibly grateful.

     

     

    Charlena Smith

    My biggest challenge prior to joining 6FBA was definitely figuring out what to focus on. I've appreciated the organization of these modules, and they've definitely helped me structure my business and focus my approach. I feel more professional and I even take myself more seriously! That confidence in and of itself is worth the course!

    Caitlin Self

    Before starting 6FBA, I was all "up in my head" about how to finally monetize my blog. I didn't know what to try first and didn't want to waste my time doing the wrong things. Now I have very actionable steps to follow, and that has brought me so much motivation and clarity. I needed a "to-do" list, and now I've got one. Thanks, Kate!​

    Stacey Foote

    I think Kate has done an incredible job with her blog in a very short amount of time. I love the actionable advice and tips in 6FBA to take your blog from a hobby to a full-time job. Her focus on earnings, rather than pageviews is very refreshing!

     

     

    Abra Pappa

    Blogs are basically free to start, but you do need to invest in strategy and how-to. Getting on the right track will save you time, money, frustration and headache while bringing clarity. Kate gives you all the tools you need to grow a thriving online business. Trust me, this resource is worth every penny. I wish I had it available 5 years ago when I was just starting to figure it all out.
