Discover the exact strategies used to start some of the biggest and most celebrated blogs on the web.

Hundreds of millions of blogs are online today. Thousands more are started every day. Anyone can start a blog in 5 minutes, but very few people will start blogs that matter.

What’s the difference between most blogs and the select few that attract huge followings?

That’s a question I started asking myself long before I started my first blog. Since then, I’ve started three popular blogs, and I’ve helped friends and clients attract huge audiences and build thriving, sustainable businesses built around blogs.

I’ve also seen plenty of bloggers work incredibly hard on something that never takes off.

By studying these differences and through the work I’ve been doing for the past 8 years, I’ve developed a repeatable formula for building successful blogs.

This formula is what I used to create blogs that attract hundreds of thousands of visitors per month (including Think Traffic and Expert Enough).

I have also used the formula to help clients launch or grow blogs that attract from 10,000 to 100,000+ visitors per month (including wildly popular sites like Live Your Legend and Man Vs. Debt).

I created this course because I believe in the ability of blogs to change the lives of the people who start them and the readers who follow them. I have seen blogs change the lives of many of my closest friends.

I would love to also help you start a blog that matters.

If you think you have the creativity and dedication it takes to create a blog that matters, you should consider joining us in this course.

3 core modules of this course:

Start a blog that matters content plan

Module 1:

In the first we setup a rock solid foundation: what the blog is about (the topic of our blog), why it matters to the audience (the compelling reason why), setting smart business goals with the blog (there are 2 kinds of blog goals), getting our basic building blocks setup, and writing a killer about page.

Module 2:

In the second we go through the seven step process to make content that earns true fans: we’ll talk about a reader journey map, how to do research on what’s popular, how to create an initial content strategy that works, how to shape great headlines, how to develop articles from nothing to something that really works, how to write a first draft, and how to shape you content so that it earns true fans.

Module 3:

And in the third we set our blog up for launch and as wide a reach as possible. We’ll cover strategies for promoting posts, how to set up your blog’s design and website, how to create a launch plan and launch your blog with a bang, and then strategies for growth after launch.

And, this course is just one part of the Fizzle roadmap, there are courses you’ll have access to to support this course, and others that come after it to help you grow your content, your email list and your strategy even further from here.

This course you’re taking is one of the most successful blogging courses ever made. At the end of it you’re going to have a blog launched… not just any blog, but one with a clear, unique purpose, with an informed and smart content strategy in place and a deep understanding of the writing, publishing and promotion process that’s going to get your blog to rise above the noise.

I’m so glad you’re here. This course is broken into several bite-sized lessons, and we recommend you simply start at the first and work your way through one action at a time. Here, let me tell you a little more about Fizzle...

You May Have Some Questions:


I don’t want to be sleazy in my business. Will this system make me do anything uncomfortable? First, I like where your head’s at. Second, NO. The Book Yourself Solid (BYS) system is so down to earth and human it will accentuate your unique personality, voice and values (instead of causing you to act in unnatural ways).

I don’t have a “client services” business. Is there anything for me in the course? Big time. From personal branding to identifying your ideal customer to dealing with sales copy on your website, this course will have an impact on any business. (Don’t forget, you get this course as well as all the others inside Fizzle.)

I’m not a blogger (is that a thing on the internet?) nor do I want to be. Will this course help my business? Yes. Whether or not you have a website or are building your business online, the BYS system gets you into clarity and action as you setup simple systems and messaging frameworks that will supercharge your business. (Also, you should totally have a website.)

I don’t have a lot of time. Will I be able to take the course in little chunks? Absolutely. You’re busy, but pro training will up your game. So we make each lesson short, strong and actionable, usually with at least one downloadable worksheet per lesson.

How much does it cost? This course, and everything else inside Fizzle (40+ courses, community, monthly office hours, Fizzle Friday hangouts), costs $35/month. But you can try it out for a couple weeks for free. Get in, try it out, see if it’s for you, cancel anytime… no contracts, no hidden fees.

What else comes with my Fizzle membership? At Fizzle we’re building the best training library and vital community for independent entrepreneurs. We’ve got 40+ courses tackling the issues you care about (or need to care about) like growing an email list to 10k and beyond, interviews with successful entrepreneurs, web design essentials, setting up a podcast and more. Plus a vital community of folks putting their arses on the line to make something they care about, live Q&A hangouts every friday and Office Hours every month. We think you’ll like this place.

Can I trust you guys? Another great question. I guess I’ll say two things in response. 1. We’ve got experience. We’ve been doing business online longer than most. In fact, well respected entrepreneurs like Pat Flynn of and Steve Kamb of have chosen to work with us instead of others for that very reason. We’ve done venture backed startups, client services business, large and small blogs and much in between. So, we’ve got some experience. And 2. It’s free to get in and kick the tires. That’s it. Click one button to cancel. We won’t string you along or hassle you. I could spout off about our pedigree all day, but the biggest testament to our training is the finished product itself, both the training and the killer community. I hope you give it a try.
