Blogging in Action Description

Blogging in Action is a course created by Shawn Taylor, an authority on blogging. The guide is a comprehensive guide on everything you need to know to make money with blogs. It covers topics like how to start a blog, generate traffic to your blo, and create multiple streams of income with your blog.

Blogging in Action Detailed Overview

Everyone knows that blogging can be very profitable. Over the last few years, there have been many examples of blogs earning six-figures and beyond with sponsorships, Adsense and affiliate promotions. But for beginners and intermediates, the details of setting up a professional blog can get in the way of creating their own. There are many questions such as which blog platform to use, what kind of plug-ins to install, how to design your own theme, how to maintain your blog, amongst other topics.

Blogging in Action is a course that walks you through all the steps and gets you up and running. It is a 200+ page book with many videos and valuable bonuses. At first glance, I thought it would be your run of the mill guide on making money on blogs. But Shawn’s course is a solid training program for those who want to create a successful blog.

For beginners, the first part of the book may be a little daunting because it starts out with the technical details of getting your blog setup. You’ll get shown the basics and start by learning how to install Wordpress and configure it for the best results. The second part of the book teaches you how to develop and publish content. You’ll get ideas to keep your blog new and fresh, position yourself as an expert and develop content that’s great for link bait (getting others to link to you).

The third part of the books is the most interesting. He teaches you how to get traffic, leverage off other major sites and also build credibility. The first thing he goes into how to make your site search engine friendly and make sure it’s optimized properly to pull in traffic. Other promotion strategies such as social networking and other web 2.0 sites are also part of the overall traffic strategy.

Probably the one thing that most blogging guides don’t talk about is building credibility for your blog. Shawn teaches you how to get mentioned in USA Today, New York Times and get personal recommendations from respected sites. When you get listed by major publications, you can display the “As seen on New York Times“, to increase the value of your blog to your visitors.

The bonuses are incredibly valuable as they are actually related to blogging and are not random bonuses thrown in for the sake of adding value. They include a keyword research tool that helps you find out what keywords to target. You also get 3 bonus videos on the technical details of your blog like maintaining your content, using the admin panel and creating galleries, polls, etc.

I liked the fact that Shawn included a script that allows you to back up your blog. This is important in case a nasty server crash occurs, which can take all your data and content along with it. An accompanying guide and video is included to teach you how to use the script.

Blogging in Action Reputation

Overall, I’m very impressed by this course. Most blogging courses either focus too much on the technical details and give you a general overview of blogging or teach you some short term blackhat strategies to piggyback off the technology and supporting blog networks. That’s not the case with this course.

Blogging in Action is a solid investment whether you want a blog to support your site, create a popular blog in any industry or want to profit as an affiliate with blogs. The quick start videos, companion videos and Wordpress videos really help you understand and put the course material into action. Shawn makes sure that he provides all the right blog resources and covers every aspect of blogging.

Blogging Action Will Get You Some Action

I wanted to try blogging in order to make some extra cash and I also enjoy talking about the things I am interested in. At first I was looking in all the wrong places. I went to a website maker in order to make my new blog but did not understand I was actually doing the wrong things right from the start just like the booklet says. First off, I didn't even have to create my own website in order just to blog. I was wasting my time and not even creating any traffic. Not only does it give great informal tips, but it gives an insightful guide on how to bring in traffic and to be noticed on the Internet. I made around $30 in about a month. I know it is not a lot of money, but it is a start. I wouldn't call this a scam but it helped. It wasn't the most amazing tips and it probably won't make you rich, but it can get you started.

Just a good product

I have been blogging 2 years now. Unlike many other fake products this is very good. It is very good for doing profits with a blog. I had not lots of earnings with my blog before, but when I discovered Blogging in Action I was excited to use this guide. For a good price, my statistics increased very fast ($20 in two weeks), it's pretty good, a simple guide. This is the best way to increase your sales. The product is helpful for anyone and I just spent 1 hour a day to read this book: it's comprehensive and very easy of utilization. I have got some ideas from it and some tips. I would recommend it to any professional and newbie marketer. It's a quite good product for everyone who wants things about making money by blogging.

Solid product by Shawn

I bought this product when I initially started blogging and I can attest to the fact that this is one of the best products on blogging. Shawn is a really great teacher and explains to you the core fundamentals of blogging in an easily understandable language. There is a great section in this product where Shawn teaches you on writing emotionally compelling blog articles which will entice the visitors to visit your site over and over again. This one concept alone is worth the price of this course. Another interesting aspect is the Video tutorials in which Shawn teaches you to create a great blog and some time tested methods to monetize it using different methods of SEO, Back linking and adding money making ads. In short the concepts are pretty good and even refreshing. I applied the concepts and I had seen 26 % increase in my site traffic, got 224 leads in just 1 week and increased my conversion rates by 8%. Highly recommended. Great product by a great teacher.

It has my approval

Before I tried this, I had no idea that you can make money by blogging. And yet all this time I could of earned for something I already do! The e-book was great. It was a bit long but it kept me interested. The parts I didn't understand were solved by their videos in the e-book.

I'm now getting about $16 a day, which doesn't sound much, however take in the fact that this is something you would usually not get paid for!

I had only given this a B as it wasn't so easy to use. Apart from that this is an awesome buy!

A blogging good buy!

I actually found this site about 6 months ago, but because I didn't have the money to purchase the full package at the time, I could only sign up 3 months ago.

Just by reading the free information provided before committing to buy, I had quite a good feel for the program. A lot of helpful advice was given in advance, and the author really does a good job of selling himself. This is always a big must for me before I buy into anything. After all. if the teacher doesn't know what they're talking about, how are they going to teach you?

As I said earlier, I couldn't afford to purchase the scheme straight away, but that was OK because when I came back to the site, the price had actually come down to $57 and was much more affordable. I've been really impressed with the package as a whole. The book is really easy to follow, and it's very informative. I learned a great deal about making money with blogs, which I have been slowly but successfully putting into action.

In addition to the book, I have access to a blogging video library, which is a really fun and interesting little feature. I find I take in information better if it's in video format anyway. I also have access to something called 'keyword sheriff', but I haven't had time to evaluate this part of the package yet.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who likes to blog. You may as well make money out of your blogging efforts!
