Who am I to be teaching you this and why should you trust me?
1. I started at sub-zero
I’m Meera Kothand, mom + freelance writer turned email marketing specialist and solopreneur.
I help bloggers and solopreneurs create authentic blogs and businesses minus the sleaze and build an unignorable, unmissable online presence. How? By simplifying digital marketing and blogging through step-by-step action plans and bite sized strategies so that you not only get it done but get it done without frustration and overwhelm.
My tips on email marketing and blogging have been featured on Marketing Profs, Addicted 2 Success, YFS, Smart blogger, Successful Blogging and several other sites.
I have first-hand experience with the frustration, overwhelm and desperation that comes with starting a new blog.
I started at sub-zero in March 2016 having never blogged before in my life.
No one knew I existed. I was not part of any mastermind groups nor did I have friends who had been blogging for years.
But in a single year I’ve grown my blog, received tonnes of love notes from my readers, and now make a full-time income from my blog.
Here are a handful of the hundreds of love notes I’ve received that are testament to this.
2. I had limited time and limited money
Like you, I had limited hours to work on my blog each day. I was a freelancing and I had a little one at home.
I also didn't have hundreds of dollars to spend on a solid beginner blogging course. Neither did I want to waste my time on information that was thin.
Like you, I wanted a simplified roadmap of the entire process of starting my blog and business without having to jump through hoops...something that would lead me to my destination with less distraction and more focus.
It took plenty of trial and error to figure out everything I know today.
These are the exact steps I took to start making a full-time income from my blog business in a single year, growing a loyal and engaged audience and building my authority.
I want to show you how you can do the same!
A 100+ page ebook and digital package available for instant download
No matter what type of blog you are starting, there are some core components that you need to focus on if you want to make money with your blog.
This ebook introduces you to these non-negotiable core-components in the form of bite-sized strategies and pro-tips so you won't find yourself a year later wondering what went wrong.
This ebook wasn't created to help you master blogging. It takes several years for that - more than an ebook and a couple of days of reading. But this ebook gives you a plan for success before you even start. Think of it as a roadmap for your first 90 days.
There are some cannot-be-missed bonuses below!
Really loved this ebook. I like that it’s short, inexpensive, and has lots of info and resources in it for beginner bloggers without getting overwhelming. It shows you what to focus on and what to not focus on. Will definitely be recommending this for beginner bloggers since I believe this is all they need to get started.
I have read a few of your products: The Blog Startup, The 1 Hour Content Plan, and your free blog course on Teachable.I am new to blogging and online business, and I am so happy that I discovered your work early on. Your material is very clear, practical, and encouraging. You definitely over-deliver. Thank you so much.
After purchasing someone else’s course on blogging, I can say that I received more than double the material for half the price with your Blog Startup book. Even your free Teachable course was better than what I paid for!
I rarely reply to any emails from the ones I've subscribed to, but tonight I've had a chance to catch up on my emails and started clicking through your mails. Wow, I am really impressed by your free content!
I also bought Blog with a Plan plus the Blogger overwhelm ebook. I've had a quick look and it's pure gold! I am so excited to have them in my hands and would be devouring this with much fervor.
This all came about because I've recently hired a business coach and I'm sorely disappointed by the lack of progress. One of the deliverables I was expecting from her is what your ebook is giving me, at a fraction of her rate!
Thank you for this resource. Now a Fan!
Meera I regret not having found you earlier.
I launched my blog just recently on a whim but then continued consuming and hoarding info which has crossed above $1000 within 4 months. All the noise and info has been driving me nuts and I've been struggling with what to do and when.
With this ebook, you show the big picture and zoom in simultaneously. I respect that you not only walk us through the steps but also help us in each section to deal with the potential hurdles. That's one of the best parts in the book. But what I love about you the most is that you teach blogging with integrity.
Meera,I'm only about 1/3 of the way through your ebook, Blog with a Plan, and I've already gotten way more value out of it than I paid. Thank you so much. I'm looking forward to the rest of it.
In a mere year you'll have an engaged audience and email list, you'll be making money from your blog and know the steps and actions you need to take to achieve your most immediate goal
You would have accomplished more than you ever thought possible, feel a sense of satisfaction and actually make progress towards this larger vision of what you want your blog and business to do for you
You don't flinch, get panicky or try different tactics hoping one sticks
You have a plan of action and every decision you take with your blog is calculated and intentional.
How The Blog Startup is different from
other blogging books out there...
