Who is this course for?

Regardless of whether you’re just starting out with your blogging journey or whether you’re in charge of a medium-sized blog and managing a team of people — this course has a ton of great tactics and strategies that you’re going to find extremely useful.

There’s a lot of actionable advice on kickstarting your blog from the ground up when resources are limited, as well as many strategies on how to effectively scale what you already have and make sure you only focus on the things that matter the most.

But, above all, this course will teach you how to run your blog as a customer acquisition channel for your business that contributes to your revenue and generates exposure for your brand.

If you’re looking for a data-driven and results-oriented approach to blogging (rather than publishing X articles per week just for the sake of it), — you’re going to love this free course!

Testimonials from “early access” students

  1. Tim's course is amazing. In fact, it's better than some paid courses charging thousands of dollars to teach you concepts that are outdated and flat out does not work. I think Tim's crazy for giving away so much value for free. No matter whether you're new or experienced, there will be something actionable for you to take away and apply to your blog right away.

  2. After you take this course, you should personally write an email to Tim. First: to thank him for seriously leveling up your content marketing game. Second: you should ask him why he’s giving away all of this for free! You will be blown away by how no-BS this course is, and how practical and actionable it is. No joke. Sign up for this ASAP.
