The Step-By-Step Plan to Launch Smart and
Grow Your Audience, Brand and Income In
The first 90 Days

without losing your sanity

crying bucketloads of tears

or working yourself to death


Does any of this sound familiar?

You decided to start a blog and online business.

You find yourself trying out every possible tool and trick, reading up on posts and signing up for webinars.

You start to think ten steps ahead (Facebook ads? Podcast? I need a designer and a logo etc.). You start to waste countless hours on things that aren’t yet relevant rather than the stuff that matters most.

That's because you don't know quite know what matters!

You've become a victim of analysis paralysis. You've gotten so stuck in the reading and researching stage of your blog that you just can't seem to move away from that to planning and doing.

All that initial excitement has been overtaken by overwhelm with EVERYTHING you need to do and learn.

Your blog is forever in 'launch' mode. You never make any progress. And you're this close to throwing in the towel.

Sound familiar?

You can work like a digital slave to start and grow your blog but all those hours don't matter if you don't have a plan for success or clear roadmap to follow.

If you're nodding YES to all of these, I have your back!


 

Who am I to be teaching you this and why should you trust me?

1. I started at sub-zero

I’m Meera Kothand, an email marketing specialist and 2x Amazon Best selling-Author.

I help bloggers and solopreneurs create authentic blogs and businesses minus the sleaze and build an unignorable, unmissable online presence. How? By simplifying digital marketing and blogging through step-by-step action plans and bite sized strategies so that you not only get it done but get it done without frustration and overwhelm.

My tips on email marketing and blogging have been featured on Marketing Profs, Addicted 2 Success, YFS, Smart blogger, Successful Blogging and several other sites.

I have first-hand experience with the frustration, overwhelm and desperation that comes with starting a new blog.

I started at sub-zero in March 2016 having never blogged before in my life.

No one knew I existed. I was not part of any mastermind groups nor did I have friends who had been blogging for years.

But in a span of 2 years I’ve grown my blog, received tonnes of love notes from my readers, and now make a full-time income from my blog.

2. I had limited time and limited money

Like you, I had limited hours to work on my blog each day. I was a freelancing and I had a little one at home.

I also didn't have hundreds of dollars to spend on a solid beginner blogging course. Neither did I want to waste my time on information that was thin.

Like you, I wanted a simplified roadmap of the entire process of starting my blog and business without having to jump through hoops...something that would lead me to my destination with less distraction and more focus.

It took plenty of trial and error to figure out everything I know today.

These are the exact steps I took to start making a full-time income from my blog business in a single year, growing a loyal and engaged audience and building my authority.

I want to show you how you can do the same!
