Work With Me

Are you a Gamer? Do you need a website or blog to grow your online business? Or do you just want to be a blogger who earns an income from blogging?

Regardless of where you’re at or your intentions, I can help you.

Your blog will help you be able to monetize your social traffic as well as search traffic from search engines.

Regardless if you have a blog up and running or not, I can help you.

This site is my side hustle, I’m hoping to grow it into something great. My wife and I have many websites as our business including:

This is how I know I can show you how I create money with Crazy Dad Speaks and through blogging. It’s because it’s something I already do and have been doing for years.

Work With Me

There are several ways to work with me. And I’m totally stoked to work with you.

At the end of the day, there are 3 things that are very important for the growth of your blog:

  1. Great Content – Without great content, your blog is useless.
  2. Traffic – Without traffic, what’s the point? SEO and Social Traffic are 2 areas you can make a tremendous impact on your traffic.
  3. Monetization – The difference between a business and a hobby is one makes you money and one costs you money. If you are trying to make money with a blog and you don’t have a plan on how to make money… how does that even make sense?

I’m not here to help hobby bloggers stay hobby bloggers.

1. Blog & Monetization Audit

Sounds fancy, doesn’t it?

If you already have a blog or website, this is where I can help you. My blog audits are hands down the best audits available. There’s nothing like what I do provided by anyone. And there’s no one you hire who will be more invested in your success than me. My goal is for you to leave your audit with clear and attainable goals coupled with excitement and a fire within that’s motivating you to charge forward to achieve your dreams.

How the Blog & Monetization Audits Work

So let’s first talk about money because I’m sure that’s a burning question in your mind.

The fee for my SEO & Blog Monetization Audits is based on the total number of blog posts & pages you have… not the number of page views or sessions you have.

Here’s a secret all other SEOs are going to hate me for revealing. The number of page views you have has no bearing on the difficulty or the amount of time it takes for me to do an SEO audit, the actual number of blog posts does.

On the other hand, a person who does SEO audits on a regular basis can pretty accurately guess how much money your blog is bringing in based on pageviews/ sessions and charge you based on what they think you should be able to afford.

I don’t value my time based on what I think you can afford. My pricing is straightforward and to the point.

Which SEO & Blog Monetization Audit is right for you?

“Just Starting Out” Consultation

“Trying to Be a Blogger” Audit

We’ll work together to design a plan that will help you reach your goals. SEO should be at the top of your list for driving traffic, with social coming in 2nd.

During this 4-5 hour video consultation, we’re going to dissect every aspect of your business to make sure we’re getting you on the right track.

“I’m a Hot Mess” Audit

1,000+ Posts & Pages
If you have over 1,000 blog posts, you’re either extremely “On Point” or a “Hot Mess,” with the latter being the most likely. More than likely, your blog is all over the place, no rhyme or reason to many posts and you know you’re missing financial opportunities. Regardless if you’re On Poin or a Hott Mess, I can help you make your blog better. Let’s identify what your challenges are and work together to get you on the right track. Your initial consultation will be 4-5 hours, we’ll also have a 1-hour follow-up video call to go over everything I send you.

Important: For any SEO Audit, you must meet these qualifications.

  • You must own your own domain.
  • Your site must be on a WordPress.org site that is self-hosted.
    • I will not do audits on websites hosted through WordPress.com hosting.
    • I will not do audits on Wix, Weebly, Shopify, Squarespace, Webflow or any other type of premade site-building service.
    • If you need new hosting, I highly recommend Big Scoots and you get a package with an SSL (yes that’s my affiliate link).
      • Do Not get Blue Host, Hostgator, or any EIG-owned hosting company… if you already have to host from one of them, so be it and if we can avoid it from the get-go, you will be ahead of the game.
  • This is a video conference call, you must be willing to do the audit over video on your computer either via Skype or Zoom. I personally like using Skype better, but I’m down for Skype or Zoom. I will not do phone call/ email audits.
    • You must use earbuds & mic or headphones and a mic… Using your audio speakers on your computer is not an option.
  • I will need Edit permissions in your Google Analytics and Google Search Console accounts.
  • I will need Administrator permissions in WordPress.
  • To find the total number of blog posts & pages you have:
    • Log into WordPress.
    • Click on “Posts” in the left column.
    • Next to the word “All” is the number of posts your audit is based off of.
    • Now click on “Pages” in the left column.
    • Next to the word “All” is the number of posts your audit is based on.
    • Now, add together the total number of “Posts” and “Pages”… this is what the service fee is based off of.
  • Note: I do not do any of the SEO fixes or any of the content fixes for you in the SEO & Blog Monetization Audit.

2. I’ll just build it for you!!!

If you’re just starting out and you want me to build your website for you from scratch… let’s do it together.

At the end of the day… I get that WordPress can be overwhelming for some people. Alright, when just starting out, WordPress can be downright intimidating for most people. I’ve been using WordPress for well over a decade and I still get stumped every once in a while, so I get it.

Me just building your site for you isn’t the answer…

The answer is for me to build your site for you while we’re on a video call together.

  • You will be able to learn from what I’m doing (it’s all recorded so you can play it back later).
  • You’ll be able to give direction so we can come up with a good look and feel for your site.
  • I’ll build and customize your site on Astra Pro (I’ll be providing the theme for you).
  • My goals are for you to have a solid understanding of:
    • How to navigate the backend of WordPress
    • How to create Pages and Posts
    • On-page SEO
    • Technical SEO
    • Google Analytics
    • Google Search Console
    • Make sure your Socials are on point
    • How generating income works
    • Accessibility

How much does it cost for me to build your site for you with you there directing me?

This is “typically” a minimum of a 10-hour process… my rate is $250 per hour with a 2-hour minimum.

Before we start, based on your goals… I’ll give you a solid estimate of how long I feel it’s going to take to build your site out. My goal is to get you up and running as fast as possible.

Billing will go as follows:

  • Deposit ($500)
  • Halfway through the estimate (billed for the total number of hours up to that point, minus deposit)
  • When we’re finished with your site (billed for remaining hours)

We will work in 5-hour sessions together with the goal of having your blog done within a 7 day period. (Unless we’re purchasing hosting during the 1st video call. If that’s the case, we’ll be on the call for about an hour while I show you how to point your domain to the nameservers and so on. It usually takes about 24 hours for your site to populate/ be able to be seen on the Internet… no worries, we’ll pick up a 5-hour session the next day.)

What you can do to help the process go faster and cost you less.

  • You will need to be prepared to purchase a domain name if you haven’t already. That’s typically going to be anywhere between $1 and $30 per year.
  • You will need to be prepared to purchase hosting if you haven’t already. (I highly recommend you chat with me before purchasing hosting so I can send you down the right path.) (Depending on your package, this will be in the range of $120 to $400ish.)
  • You will need to be prepared to purchase premium plugins for your site… though I can build your site without premium plugins, it will be much better if we get them. (Depending on your goals, this will be in the range of $50 to $500ish.)
  • Anything you can do ahead of time will help us not only complete your site faster, but it’ll also help save you money. That said, we can do everything from start to finish during our time together.
    • Things to think about creating ahead of time:
      • Logo
      • A headshot of you…1200px by 1200px.
      • Images to use on your blog 1200px by 1200px is recommended. (I highly recommend you take your own photos and create your own images and to not use stock images… especially don’t use “free” stock images.)
      • Create the copy for your 1st blog post.
      • Create the copy for your “About You” section.
