Beyond The Blog FAQs
If I’m already making money on my blog, why do I need to take this course?
It’s no secret that blogs are not going to be around forever - but smart businesses will! We will teach you how to transform your current blog into a brand that will outlast the shifts in the industry so you don’t get left behind. At the end of this course, you’ll be well-equipped to create a business that will help you grow beyond where you are now, expanding your reach, relevancy and revenue.
I think I already have a pretty clear brand strategy - how can this course help me?
That’s great! A clear vision can make this course even more applicable and useful for you. The course can help you dig deeper into your strategy and use it to guide you through the work of identifying your opportunity in the marketplace and envisioning your target audience - both of which will be areas of growth for you. When you think about growth as both a goal and a process, you realize the importance of a strategy that evolves with you and your reader’s interests and challenges.
How long do I have access to the course content?
You will have lifetime access to the digital course once you have registered. You’ll also have lifetime access to the private Facebook group (and we hope you come back often, and tell us about all your successes!).
I’m already so busy - what is the time commitment to complete the course?
We’re not going to lie - this course is work! It’s also enlightening, rewarding and in many ways, game-changing. Work has gotten you to where you are and it’s going to get you to where you’re going next. The course is set up so that you can watch and learn and work at a pace that’s best for you. There are five lessons, and the course’s private Facebook group will be focused on one lesson per week. Even if you haven’t completed the lesson, we recommend you join in on the Facebook conversation every week.
How does the course actually work?
At sign-up, we'll be in touch with you until class begins with updates, behind the scenes info, and exclusive freebies. When the course starts, you’ll be given access to all of the course content: tutorial videos for each lesson, and each key element within the lesson, and the workbook, which provides detailed, explanatory content, examples, tips and takeaways, assignments, worksheets and space to think and write. Once you’ve completed the workbook it will become an important resource for you, a guide to your goals and a business plan for your future. You’ll also be given access to the students-only private Facebook group. Laurie and her team will be there, leading the weekly conversation about each lesson, answering questions and offering feedback.
Is there a refund policy?
No, since you will be given lifetime access to the entire digital library and workbook, we are unable to offer refunds.
Is there a payment plan option?
Yes! We created this course with a goal of providing ambitious self-starters like you with an accessible and affordable strategy for turning your blog into a thriving business. The payment plan option allows you to pay in 3 payments over 3 months.
Are there examples of CookIt success stories?
