Most female bloggers struggle to create a platform in isolation. The Blog Connection is a community of mature women entrepreneurs, that will help you discover how to create a platform, optimize your message and successfully grow your blog in a Millennial world.
Most women launch a blog but struggle to monetize their platform. The Blog Connection provides a clear and proven pathway to help you earn your first $1K online.
We concentrate on three main areas: Content, Connection, and Cashflow.
Hi, I'm Katie
First, I’m a wife of 14 years, and a mother of 5 homeschooled children. I’m an author, marketer, social media strategist, and business owner.
I have a special knack for helping older women start and grow an online business and, in fact, the majority of my clients are over 40.
"Too much to figure out, and not enough time."
I hold a master's degree in education, but as the granddaughter of an inventor and the daughter of an entrepreneur, I’ve sat through literally hundreds of business meetings.
I’ve worked in the classroom, and with curriculum development. I've worked payroll, customer service, HR, production, shipping, and marketing.
I've started and failed at online businesses 3 times, and turned those learning experiences around to now make a full-time income online.
Everything changed when I earned my first dollar online.
In 2012, we were living month to month, no savings, no emergency fund, 4 children and a baby on the way and had to figure out how to bring in some extra income. Our first attempt was an ebook that sold as a kindle on Amazon. That first exhilarating sale was enough to tell me this was possible!
I only had 24 hours in my day, just like you, and had to cram in time for classes and reading and implementing and creating and coaches and conferences, but it paid off.
Everything that I’ve learned since starting my business in 2012 has been gathered into The Blog Connection where over the last 2 years my courses and membership have helped over 1,000 women grow their blogs, and increase their income.
A Proven, 3-Step Path to Earning Your First $1K Online.
Because I know the tech that the younger generation knows, but have far more business experience than they do, I have a special knowledge base that helps those over 40 far more than just the basics of getting a website and social media accounts up and running.
Content and Tech
I also know what the younger generation doesn’t know. I remember the days when relationships were started face to face and built slowly over time. I can help you balance modern technology with timeless content because while I remember the pre-laptop, pre-internet, pre-cell phone world and it’s challenges, I also understand and speak the language of the high-tech, convenience-driven world of today.
I’m a visionary at heart, with tons of drive which is why I so enjoy the challenge and creativity of online marketing and modern business systems and tools, but I totally understand when my over-40 clients don’t understand the internet world, it’s terms and it’s protocols.
Moving overseas to a new culture and language makes me sympathetic to those who struggle when new things and new ways of doing things are hard. I completely understand when my clients may not want to learn or even enjoy learning "the new way" and when they find the modern online business world overwhelming and frustrating.
I understand how communication between the generations is often difficult, because a younger person can’t imagine what life would be like without laptops, instant messaging and A.I. bots (No one even seems to know what a Table of Contents, Index, Card Catalog, or Dictionary is anymore).
I also know that many older entrepreneurs don’t know what they don’t know, and so are at the mercy of younger people for their tech services. It’s hard to know whom to trust when you don’t speak the language or fully understand the job you need them to do.
And I understand the importance of real life connections. EVERY time our business has taken a turn for the better it’s been a direct result of a personal interaction, a connection with someone who could help us over than next hump.
I enjoy interpreting the latest tech and marketing news for my clients, and I have a large network of trusted SEO experts, social media strategists, virtual assistants and design/tech people with whom I have worked and can recommend as needed.
And - I’m not afraid to use the telephone.
I do a lot of my coaching in written form in our members only Facebook group, but I also have been known to spend time on the phone with my private coaching clients outside of scheduled appointments when they’re particularly stuck and they all have my number for calls or texts as needed.
I love to travel and I see online business and blogging as a journey. It would be a joy to guide you on your own exciting journey as you grow your blog, influence and income online.
Why? Because I know the incredible freedom that our family has experienced with online income streams in place, and I want that for you as well without the confusion and learning curves that took me so long to master.
My Goal for Blog Connection Members is
Here’s What Other Students Are Saying.
When you join The Blog Connection, you're getting Everything You Need to Blog Your Way to An Extra $1K a Month:
"Since joining The Blog Connection I've seen growth that directly translates into increased earnings. I would tell anyone that the membership or coaching with Katie is worth the price."
- Becky Marie, ForThisSeason.com
"I appreciate the support and accessibility to Katie. The Blog Connection will supply the logistics for you to answer your call, regardless of your niche or blog topic."
- Cathy Canen, GentlePaleo.com
"I love the sense of community and connections in The Blog Connection. The one-on-one support from Katie is second to none. She is a cheerleader, teacher, and a wealth of online business knowledge."
- Alexis Mathews, PremierExecutiveMedia.com
Are there bonuses?
Well Yes, There are.
Some blogging courses out there cost between $800 and $1200, and there's no one to hold your hand as you go through the material.
Hiring a private blogging or business coach these days can cost you upwards of $2,000 per month. I know. I've done it (so that you don't have to).
Not joining The Blog Connection now means months more of frustrated efforts and wasted time and money as you try to figure things out on your own.
But for less than the cost of getting your nails done, you could be well on your way to having a successful blog.
It's decision time. Will you join us before we close our summer registration June 16th?
