- Eastern Washington UniversityBusiness Education
I discovered WordPress in 2007. In 2008, I seriously dove into it and was creating sites for clients. I started teaching people how to use it in 2010.
Prior to that I owned a successful marketing and graphic design firm for 20 years. Because of this experience I bring a lot to the table when it comes to helping people with WordPress.

Wonder how the smart bloggers and site owners sell without turning off their readers?
Would you like to earn money from your site by only promoting things that are really useful and can help your readers in some way?
Keeping your blog or your site is hard work. You collect your readers and visitors one at a time. After they spend some time on your blog, they will figure out if they trust you. And if they don’t, they won’t listen to you.
What should you do about that?
Many bloggers make one common mistake: selling products and services they don’t believe in.
how big a blog audience you need to start making money
how to apply some of the basics of the most successful revenue models for blogs
how to sell without compromising your values and why the more narrow your niche is, the easier it is to monetize
how to find your audience and market to them
how to drive more affiliate sales
There will be plenty of time for Q&A as well.
