Blogging Success Starts With A Plan
Let’s face it, building a blog can seem like an overwhelming feat – setting it up, generating traffic, building an income stream… and then realising this is just the tip of the iceberg!
Sometimes it feels easier to just give up… DON’T!
Blogging success isn’t as mystical as it seems, and it’s not just for the ‘lucky’ ones – the reason bloggers have success is because they learn what actually brings them results.
They fully understand their time is limited, and they build real plans and strategies to make the best use of this time.
It’s far too easy to run around in mental circles feeling like this is impossible – I once felt the same.
But by breaking the process down into achievable tasks, I was able to do the seemingly ‘impossible’ and build successful blogs – time and time again.
And now, I can guide you to do the same!
Let me help you craft your plan to become the blogger YOU want to be!
I offer coaching that puts you in the driver’s seat so that we focus on the issues you’re facing in building a blog.
I offer 2 types of blog coaching – 1:1 Sessions and Group Sessions.
Group coaching is ideal for friends that have common questions or people in a mastermind group.
How coaching works
You will be allocated a 40-minute phone call, ideally though Skype.
I also put aside one hour of preperation for our talk. For this, I will ask you to provide as much information as possible about your blog and what you want to achieve by talking to me.
I email questions to help guide you on what is useful.
This way, I can prepare for our conversation so that I’m already familiar with your blog and issues so we spend the entire 40 minutes devising a strategy that will help you!
You will receive an email with the notes I made for our session afterwards so that nothing is forgotten.
You are also welcome to record our call (but please do not to share it).
It’s also possible to purchase a package of 3 sessions of 40 minutes each. Ideally, these take place monthly but you can choose the frequency. This also includes an hour of preparation before the first call and half an hour before each of the second two calls.
All three sessions must take place within 6 months of signing up.
A group session runs for one hour, and I put aside half an hour to prepare beforehand. Please email through the questions that you want to talk about and any information about how you would like to structure the session once we have set a time.
You can record our call and share it with any group members that aren’t able to make the session. I will also email the group organiser any notes that I make in my preparation for the session.
One hour isn’t long enough to make individualised plans for each group member so this is best for people who have specific questions or if the group has areas where they have common struggles that we can go through in detail.
What I can help with:
Providing individual or group based coaching on areas like goal setting and planning, starting a new blog, SEO, affiliate marketing, products and sales funnels
Advice on how to move forward when you’re feeling stuck
Devising a strategy to follow to meet your blogging goals
Setting up a new site
Building on these areas if you opt for multiple sessions
What I can’t help with:
× Ongoing email support
× Implementing the things we discuss
× Specialist social media help
× Teaching everything about SEO or Affiliate Marketing to beginners (for this, refer to my course)
What my clients say
Sharon’s 1:1 coaching has been an invaluable asset to the growth of my blogging career. After a blog that didn’t do anything, Sharon was able to give me a clear path, directives, and goals to work on for a new site that within months started bringing in small, but steady passive income that has only grown each and every month. With less than 10 hours a week of work time for me, cutting straight to chase and ONLY focusing on what she has proven to work let me have the perfect work/ life balance while still watching my blog grow. I was astounded at what could be done with just SEO and a proper guide plan! Sharon is extremely generous with her abundant amount of knowledge and was the perfect mentor for creating a new site (and now, knowing what I know, I can take this knowledge and apply to my first site for growth!! Double win!!!)

Sharon’s coaching session was invaluable! I feel like I had lots of pieces of the puzzle, but having her coach me through my questions really helped me put them together and create a game plan to accomplish my goals. I love how real and honest Sharon is. She tells it like it is, but gives you a clear and realistic path to success.

Her depth of knowledge in building and monetizing websites, and her ability to convey very technical topics in a simple fashion is what makes Sharon a great mentor and teacher. Sharon has not only been an amazing instructor in Build Blog Freedom, but she’s also been a generous and very open mentor during her recent attendance in our Mastermind group of family travel bloggers. We invited Sharon in for the day to help guide us all a bit more on SEO and overall successful blogging techniques and I really appreciated how honest she was about what has and hasn’t worked for her in the past. We all walked away more confident in our paths, yet each with something new to work on.

An SEO & Blogging Expert You Can Trust
My name is Sharon Gourlay – founder of this site and professional blogger for nearly six years!
I initially found my niche in family travel and turned my blog into a multiple 6-figure earner, and my online business has evolved from there.
I’ve since built many other blogs in many niches from personal finance to parenting to lifestyle and have been able to have success time and time again by following a proven strategy that works.
My blogs provide me with more than just income. It’s what allowed me and my family to live our dream life for the last 5 years.
Prior to blogging, I worked as a teacher. I now get to use these skills coaching and teaching other bloggers how to achieve the same freedom, and I love it!
I’ve now taught over 500 students the same methods I use, and there’s nothing I love more than helping others achieve their goals!
