Who I am and what I do!!!
I'm not just some random guy who wrote a blog post once back in 2013 and I'm trying to tell you how to make money blogging... I actually blog and have been doing it since 06. And I blog and build websites about topics that are way beyond "how to make money blogging." I actually write, photograph and video record recipes... and DIY projects... and I do product reviews... and sponsored content... and I do affiliate marketing... run ads... brand ambassadorships and so much more. I actually run a successful blogging business with multiple blogs and websites. I'm not a theorists as most people who talk about "make money blogging" are... I'm an actual practitioner.
I do a very limited amount of consulting.
As of right now I do not have this website indexed. That means search engines are not finding it and that's intentional. I love doing these audits and I don't have time for the masses. I only work with 1 person at a time doing my audits.
If you are reading this, it's because you stumbled upon me somewhere on social media or someone referred you to me. Welcome, I'm stoked you're here.
Understand, I do these consultations because I really enjoy doing them... they're amazingly fun for me. I only work with people I want to work with. I don't want to waste your time and I don't want to waste mine. This is my fun side hustle.
I'm not a 1 and done type of person you're going to work with. My goal is for you to hire me for my audit service once a year to help keep you on track. And to help you through my Mastermind. If that's not your jam... your not my peanut butter.
I only work with business owners. I'm not here to try to train your employee to do something, that doesn't excite me. Helping you grow your business does. That said, if you're an employee and your boss sent you to me, I might be the person to teach you how to be your own boss?
The Ultimate Blog & Business Audit
There's no blog auditing service out there that provides a service even remotely similar to what I provide. Your audit starts off with an in-depth look at your website that includes search engine optimization, content optimization, optimizing your income pillars and it culminates with a business strategy plan .
During your audit, I don’t just look at one part of your blog or business. I look at everything to identify ways you can improve your web presence, time management & ultimately your income.
When we're done with your Detailed Blog & Business Audit, you will leave with a clear vision and clear understanding of what you need to do to move forward to accomplish your goals.
Together, we create a written plan to accomplish your goals that fits into your busy life. And I send that to you after your call. And then we talk again all about it.
How it works!!!
During your Audit I'll cover a lot of ground and that's why this is a 3 to 4-Hour Audit done over Skype VIDEO. Don't worry, our time will go by very fast... and yes, we will totally take breaks. There's no rush.
Your Blog & Business Audit focuses on 4 general areas:
1. SEO Audit Report
I run an SEO report and we go over it. The report identifies common issues that you can typically fix on your own.
Some of the things the SEO Audit Report covers:
Indexing & Crawlability
4XX & 5XX Status Codes
Status of Images
2. Content Audit
We review your content inventory and how you utilize it. We then discuss your best options for monetizing it.
While conducting your content audit we'll cover:
Pages on Your Site
Supporting Pieces of Content
Keywords & Keyphrases
Categories & Tags
Social Media Strategy
3. Making Money Audit
We see where you're making money and where you could be making more... then double down on those areas.
We're going to go over your income pillars:
Sponsored Social Media
4. Business Strategy Plan
The biggest mistake online businesses make is not having a clear & defined plan. This costs time, energy & money.
You will have a detailed strategic plan for your blog:
Time Management Focused
Cornerstone Content Ideas
Supporting Content Ideas
After your audit!
You'll have 1-year acccess to a Mastermind Group where you'll be able to ask me questions and get answers.
How I'm helping!!!
What they're saying about me!!!
I've been blogging for a long time, but found it hard to keep up on all the "behind-the-scenes" knowledge. SEO, site architecture, social media, working with brands--these were all things I needed to learn about, but the amount of information out there is overwhelming. Brian distilled his years of experience into a site audit that was customized for my site and my needs. He showed me what I need to do, prioritized it, and gave me time-saving ideas to accomplish more work quickly. I learned more in the time I spent with him than from all three blogging conferences I attended last year.

"Working with Brian on my tenured website as well as my brand new website has hands down been the best investment of time and energy I have ever made to date. As someone who owns several successful websites, Brian gets the day to day struggles we go through. He has a unique understanding of social media, content creation, working with brands, SEO, marketing, and more. He also has access to some mind-blowing software for performing crazy in-depth analysis on websites. He uses this date plus his knowledge to provide actionable plans of attack both in terms of cleaning up major technical issues to taking a website to the next level from a business standpoint. He is very forward-thinking, encouraging, and creative. I *thought* I knew what I was doing but Brian's enthusiastic direction has not only reinvigorated my passion for both of my websites but also truly made me excited about doing all the tedious cleanup! Everyone needs a coach like Brian!"
"Brian carries a wealth of information. I *thought* that I had the basics of blogging covered, but Brian helped me uncover some major overlooked changes that I needed for my site in a very helpful, unassuming way. His audit illustrated areas that needed work, and his experience helped him to give me suggestions to improve my site. I’m grateful for the experience and look forward to continuing to improve my site with Brian’s help."

"Brian’s infectious energy and passion for helping people shines through every time he speaks. He also managed to get right to the heart of what I want to be doing as a blogger, artist, and business-owner after just a few minutes of our first coaching session. I so appreciate and resonate with his no-bullshit, straightforward approach, and I’m thrilled to be working with him as my coach."
"Working with Brian has been one of the best steps I've taken to grow my business! His in-depth coaching is geared around a thorough analysis of my site, my social media presence, my goals, and my strengths - and following the strategies he suggested for my business helped immediately start growing both my page views and my income. I can't wait to see what comes in the months ahead as I continue with his invaluable coaching!"
"Working with Brian has been insanely rewarding! His very direct nature makes it so you don't waste time during scheduled appointments and he always provides a step by step action plan from your calls. My favorite part though is that he is always around to answer questions (no matter how random or silly they seem) and will never make you feel out of place for asking them. Brian has helped me see my blog better as a business and not as just something I love."
Shelby Stover C.S.C.S., P.N.
"I walked away from my site audit session with Brian with a list of 15+ actionable items to improve my website and business operations. I’m so excited to implement them and start seeing results! Brian is an experienced online entrepreneur who truly cares about helping others succeed. Working with him will lead you to where you want to go."
