Blogging and Affiliate Marketing
Here are our top recommendations and links to what we have found to be the best blogging courses and tools.
Bluehost for Hosting
Bluehost Review – I run several self-hosted blogs and the best company for hosting that I have found is Bluehost. Read my full review. Bluehost is responsible for hosting more than 2 million blogs and websites world-wide. We have used Bluehost on all our blogs and never had a problem with them. They are very low cost and reliable (pretty much all you really need from website host!). They are a very good choice for a new blog, especially as they have a partnership with WordPress – this means that it is very easy to install and host with Bluehost. You can purchase Bluehost hosting for the lowest possible cost here.
Side note: If you are thinking about starting a blog, check out our step-by-step tutorial that helps you to start a profitable blog at the lowest possible price! If you purchase hosting (required if you want to start a profitable blog) through our Bluehost link, you will also get a free website domain name (worth about $15!). Your domain name is the website address that people type into the URL bar on their browser to visit your website.
Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing Course Review – When we implemented the lessons taught in this course, we TRIPLED our website traffic within a few weeks! Read my full review. This is definitely the blogging course that you should take if you want to start making some real money by affiliate marketing on your blog. The course was written by multi-millionaire professional blogger, Michelle Schroeder-Gardner. This affiliate marketing course can change your life, especially if you blog in the personal finance niche. Michelle goes through all the basic skills needed for affiliate marketing and then into the specifics (including quite detailed insight into her own great success). She even tells you what affiliate programs she uses, which of her blog posts bring her the most in affiliate income and why. This is a truly exceptional course that helped us to earn an additional $1000 every month in affiliate income very shortly after implementing the advice in the course.
Wealthy Affiliate Community: This is an excellent community of affiliate marketers that I am an active part of. You can get started for free. The free membership even includes a free blog and hosting! We highly recommend joining this community as there are many experienced bloggers and affiliate marketers in the Wealthy Affiliate community that can help you learn very quickly. Wealthy affiliate is unlike any other community I have ever seen for blogging – you can get any questions you have answered within 10 minutes and there is just so much opportunity for networking and learning from others.
Mentors are the key to success! Check out my review of Wealthy Affiliate for all the details on this great program.

Traffic is vital to making money blogging. Here are some of the blogging course reviews that have a significant focus on techniques for increasing your blog traffic.
The Perfect Pin: How to Create Viral Pinterest Images: This awesome Pinterest course by Jeff Proctor did more for our Pinterest traffic than any other course! In 30 days we went from 97k monthly views to 1 Million monthly views on Pinterest.
It literally doubled my traffic to this blog over night! We LOVE it! If you want to know the secret to driving 7.5 Million Pinterest views per month to your blog then this is the course for you! Read more about it here.
Free Blog Traffic Bonus Guide – We love this 100% FREE traffic bonus guide! It was written by a very successful blogger (Lena Gott), this FREE blog traffic guide is essential for any blogger looking to dramatically increase their page views and blog income.
Traffic Transformation Guide also written by Lena Gott is a great course. It covers so many different traffic generating techniques to grow and diversify your blog traffic. The course costs $79, which is a ridiculous bargain in my opinion. You can also sign-up for her free course and Lena will most likely notify you when Traffic Transformation is discounted! This course is probably one of the best that you can buy if you want to get some serious traffic to your blog.
