If you want to grow your blog, you won't get there by just pumping out more content in a crowded market. Because according to research, most readers decide within 10-20 seconds of opening your post whether they should keep reading or leave. That's all you get.

But research brings us good news, too. The secret to sustainable blogging success is converting your visitors to loyal fans who keep coming back. In this free 7-day e-course, you'll get the science-backed, 3-step formula for hooking your reader and never letting go.

Grab your spot now because space is limited. Class starts September 28, and the deadline to get in is Tuesday, September 27, 11:59 pm CT.

Reserve your spot here: http://stickyblogging.com/subscribe/

p.s. Not sure whether it will be worth your time? Here's the scoop from one student:

"I just want to drop you a quick note to say that I applied the Sticky Blogging Formula to the best of my ability on a post that went live yesterday. I checked my stats this morning and I received about three times more page views than I usually do! My total Facebook reach climbed over 2000%. I got over 10 times as many shares as I usually do...I’m not saying I’ve gone viral or anything, but this is a huge success for me."

A lot of the SEO advice you get as a blogger sounds like this: Research the right keywords! Speed up your site! Create the most amazing page on that topic the world has ever seen!

Starting Monday, June 20, I'm teaching a 5-day e-course where you'll get three quick wins you can start using immediately to up your SEO game. Each practical lesson will step you through:
1. The SEO mistake you might be making,
2. Why it's holding you back, and
3. How to fix it.
