It’s time for you to stand out from the crowd. In this session we will toss out all of those bad marketing ideas and teach you how to soft sell your way to 6 figures. No sleazy gimmicks or infomercials necessary. Just real authentic goodness.

Workshop Details: The Core Affiliate Strategy
During the first 45 minutes of this workshop, I’ll walk you through the Core Affiliate Strategy and how to use your newsletter to maximize your affiliate income without overwhelming you (promise!) or being spammy. If you have an email list with more than 2,000 people on it and you aren’t making more than $600/month from affiliates, then you NEED this workshop. At the end of the session, you’ll set up your first launch with my help and draft your first emails. Everyone should leave the class with a clear understanding of how to make money (efficiently) as an affiliate.

Workshop Prerequisites:
While I’ve seen success with much smaller lists, the maximum benefit of this class will go to people with an email list over 2,000 subscribers. If you don’t yet have an email list, this may be advanced for you.

Kelli Miller & Crystal VanTassel-Lopez

2017 Mentors and authors of Skyrocket and Dominate

Kelli’s Short Bio:
Kelli began 3 Boys and a Dog in November 2006 because “everyone else was doing it.” In 2009, after a few years of flying by the seat of her pants, she received an email from a brand wanting to advertise on her site. Taking the search engine optimization knowledge that she garnered as an eBay Power Seller where she was able to turn out over 100,000 items a month, she quickly applied SEO to her site and took herself to ProBlogger status within just a few months. By 2010, she was mentoring other bloggers and met soon-to-become blogging bestie and LearntoBlog business partner, Crystal. Now, Kelli & Crystal are leading experts on the world of Search Engine Optimization for multiple female blogger genres and run several successful communities around the web, including the LearntoBlog community that was developed in 2013.

Crystal’s Short Bio:
Hey guys! It’s Crystal, Dallas-based blogger from crystalandcomp.com and co-owner of learntobloghangouts.com. I started blogging back in 2008 as a hobby and a few years later turned it into a business that now brings in right under 6 figures. I am Kelli’s prodigy student- her SEO knowledge and actionable task methods are what helped me take my blog from hobby to half a million pageviews a month. Fast forward to 2017, together, we have mentored hundreds of bloggers to help them dominate the search engines and make their blogs a business. I also speak at local mom groups, contribute to live morning show segments, and my work has been featured on sites like Parents.com, CountryLiving.com, People Magazine, Mashable, MentalFloss and Refinery29. My work has even been featured in print in the November 2015 edition of Good Housekeeping.

Workshop One Details: How to Make Old Content Work for You!
During this workshop, Kelli (and Crystal) will teach you how to reuse those old URLs to create Perfect Blog Posts that garner traffic and income. You will update at least one piece of old content following our proven-results, action task method during the implementation portion.

Workshop One Prerequisites:
You must have an existing blog with at least 30 current blog posts – the older your blog is, the more you are going to get from this workshop.

Workshop Two Details: The Power of Landing Pages for SEO
Do you know what landing pages are? Does the term confuse you? Landing pages serve two main purposes. When properly crafted they hold extensive weight in regard to search engine optimization and developing authority for your keywords. On the flip side, landing pages are essential for building a relationship with your readers, building pageviews, increasing ad profits and more!
It is time you understand landing pages, their power, and how to craft them correctly.
By the end of this course you will craft at least one perfect landing page as Kelli and Crystal walk you through it step by step. You will then be ready to apply the process to your entire site!

Workshop Two Prerequisites:
You must have an existing blog with at least 30 live posts. Bloggers looking to make their blog a business are ideal candidates for this workshop.

My Favorite Blogging Conference

This is my favorite blogging conference, because it is so different from any others. Because it's small, I didn't feel overwhelmed or awkward attending for the first time. The sessions were exactly what I needed, and the implementation time at the end of each one definitely makes Focused unique. I can put into practice what I've just learned instead of trying to remember it all when I get home. The networking times were instrumental in allowing bloggers a time to meet each other, brainstorm together, and interact with each of the sponsors in attendance. I highly recommend Focused for new and experienced bloggers!

It’s not about beating the next blogger…

I've attended other blogging conferences and few have focused on giving inexperienced bloggers personal access to the knowledge and skill sets of some of the more experienced bloggers. These mentors not only have been in the trenches where I'm at, but they also are willing to share what has and hasn't worked for them. It's not about trying to beat the next blogger, but how to grow so we all are successful.

Planning on Attending EVERY Year!

Being a new blogger, it was important to me to feel welcomed. Focused went above and beyond to not only help me navigate to the right workshops but provided unlimited access to all of the mentors. No question was too small and the instructions were always clear. The sponsors were regular people who seemed very happy to be there. The location was easy to find. The menu and dining experience was lovely. I plan on attending all Focused Blogging Conferences in the future because they don't teach the exact same classes every year. The fact that their online community is more than willing to help me at any time is also a huge plus. I made so many friends that it's hard not to love it just for that perk alone.

Hands-down my favorite conference!

The Focused Blogging Conference is THE event for bloggers who truly want to create something meaningful for their audience AND provide for their family. Because of the small size and the caring and positive attitude of the event team, Focused is also a tremendous opportunity to make lasting connections with brands and other bloggers. Out of the half a dozen conferences I've been to, Focused was hands-down my favorite and the one that had the biggest impact on my blogging career.
