Have you been blogging for awhile but are failing to make the switch from hobby to business blogger and want this to change NOW?
Are you not sure what you are doing wrong, but feel that something seems to be missing as you struggle to monetise and gain traffic?
You aren’t alone! Today, you get front row seats to my coaching session with Keith Erskine, a travel blogger who has been blogging for awhile but can’t seem to make this switch. You will learn where I see him and many other bloggers going wrong with SEO, monetisation and branding.
Better yet, you can copy his two month road map to put your own blog on its path to success.
Keith explains what he wants from his blogging journey and what he’s tried so far. I share my feedback on his site and where I see him going wrong before sharing a detailed 2 month road map of how to spend the next couple of months to set him up for success.
The best part is that this is directly applicable to most blogs and you can download your own copy of the road map by clicking here.
It’s also incredibly simple – there are barely any steps. You will love it!
And since it’s now been over two months since we recorded this, you can also hear from Keith below about his results.

Update After Two Months
At the time of writing this section, it’s mid May and two months have passed since my call with Keith. This is what he emailed me to say:
I want to share this with you. As a direct result of the hour coaching session I received from you two months ago, here are two very significant results.
1] I’ve reach position 1 on Google for ‘best ****’. Buying guide published in early April, 2020. Amazing result.
2] Travellin’ Lite earned its first affiliate commission. Never thought I’d see it happen
Sharon, again; so many thanks for your guidance and no BS approach. I struggled for what seems forever; and that one call changed it all.
I’m going to continue with……..
1] Writing Buying Guides
2] Collab posts for link building
3] Hosting my own collabs for travel related content, focussing on Buying Guides myself.
Cheers. Keith Erskine.
Taking into account that Keith is building a travel site and this period is during a huge travel shutdown worldwide thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and this result is even better.

Keith has made $496 in the last 2 months in affiliate commissions and has had 3,800 visitors in last 30 days. Everything is trending up! I look forward to the results at 6 months.
Update After 11 Months
At the 11 month mark, Keith returned to the podcast to share his current traffic, earnings, how he went with completing the 2 month road map and what he has done since.
You are absolutely going to love as it shows you the benefit of completing this road map and just how powerful it is.

Next episode, I am talking about how to use SEO to make money from your blog.
Getting search engine traffic is very powerful and where it has its biggest power is that you know what people want to know/do by the keywords they search for – so you can use these to write the types of articles I advised Keith to write – buying guides that help people make smart buying decisions and are also great for earning passive income for bloggers.
