Have you been blogging for a while and feel like your blog just isn't growing fast enough? Do you see other bloggers land sponsorship after sponsorship with big brands and wonder when it's going to be your turn?
What's going on?
You know you create great content but just wish you could start monetising it. But how on earth do you sift through all the conflicting information out there and work out a solid plan? Some bloggers make it look so easy while you're over here playing the trial and error game.
If you're a blogger, you know how difficult it is to take your blog from 'hobby' to legit paid gig.
But what if I told you that there's a shortcut?
Does any of this sound familiar?
You create great content but your traffic has flatlined. You invest so much time and energy into publishing high-quality posts so why aren't your pageviews climbing month after month?
You're confused by which monetisation strategy to focus on. There seems to be a heap of ways to monetise a blog but you don't know which one is right for you.
You have no idea what to charge for blog collaborations. You don't want to charge too little and be taken advantage of but don't want to charge too much and not be competitive. Most bloggers keep their rates secret so how do you figure out your rates?
You've tried pitching a brand but haven't had much success. You feel like you're ready to work with brands but wonder why your email pitches go unanswered.
You want to appear professional but are worried about meeting a brand's expectations. You want to do a good job but don't know how to navigate things like contracts, campaign briefs, reports and invoicing.
You can't help but compare yourself to other bloggers. You don't understand how others have so much success when you work so hard and feel like you're getting nowhere.
But imagine if...
- You had a rock-solid content strategy that guaranteed your blog's growth month after month
- You knew exactly what to charge for collaborations and could completely take the guessing game out of it
- You had perfected the ultimate pitch email, making you irresistible to brands
- You were securing long-term partnerships that were bringing in steady, reliable income
- You were consistently wowing brands with your professionalism, transforming them into return clients again and again

What sets this course apart?
The pivotal difference between Blog Boost and the many other blogging courses out there is that it's been developed by a qualified educator. Most online courses are created by those with no understanding of how students learn. My past career as a teacher in both Australia and Germany, however, means that I'm an expert in design learning programmes that see high student success rates. I'm bringing all the skills I used to help students succeed in the world's most challenging school programs to you here at Blog Boost.
Also, unlike in most online courses, you won't be wading through boring PDFs in Blog Boost. Instead, the course is delivered through professionally recorded video content (over 3.5 hours worth). Through the video training, I'll be personally guiding you through the program in a highly engaging and motivating way.
100% of surveyed past students said Blog Boost gave them a rock-solid game plan for monetising their blog.
Blog Boost completely changed the way I approach blogging. It gave me the tools I needed to treat my blog as a business rather than just a hobby. I love that Blog Boost takes you through every step of your blogging journey, from identifying your target audience to creating a content calendar to negotiating brand deals.
Since implementing the strategies I learned in this course, my monthly page views have doubled. Rachel is an amazing teacher and is incredibly supportive – I can't recommend this course enough to anyone who's ready to jumpstart their blogging career!
– Claire Waggoner, Blogger, Tall Girl Big World
"This is an excellent course — definitely worth checking out!"
- John Doe, Co-Founder, Impressive Company
Blog Boost is exactly the course I have always needed to exist, but could never find.
The content is packed-to-the-brim with wisdom. It's a tour-de-force of generous, actionable information, tips, challenges and exercises that will up-level your blog strategy and get you where you dream of being.
From pitching to monetisation, from navigating brand partnerships to content strategy, not to mention unparalleled support from Rachel herself, this course thoroughly covers it all, and then some.
You need this course (and some Rachel) in your life. It's not the kind of course you'll do once and move on – it's something you'll want to keep bookmarked and refer back to, constantly. Signing up will sincerely be the best present you could give yourself – and your business.
– Emma Codrington, Blogger and Founder of Emma Kate Co.
'Before Blog Boost, I was pitching without a real plan. One pitch I worked back and forth on for ages with a potential client and I was tempted to offer more (and devalue my service) but after watching Blog Boost I realised I really needed to stick to my guns. I reached out to a similar company and boom! Straight away they said YES!
Blog Boost gave me the confidence to know that with hard work, being proud of my skills and determination, this lifestyle will pay off.'
– Brenda Pomponio, Blogger, Our Family Travels
'Blog Boost is great for intermediate bloggers, who have an established blog that needs a little push in the right direction. I can't wait to continue to put all of the skills I learned in Blog Boost into action this year. Thanks Rachel for creating such an informative and hands-on course.'
– Hayley Simpson, Blogger, Hayley on Holiday
Why I created Blog Boost
Even though I've built a profitable blog that has enabled me to completely ditch the 9-5, I learnt everything the hard way. I spent so much time trying to figure out the right strategies to monetise and I felt so overwhelmed, lost and confused by all the conflicting information out there. I wasted so much time and energy trying different methods when I just wished there was someone who could cut through the noise and guide me the right way. I wished I had access to a step-by-step action plan to take me where I wanted to go.
I created Blog Boost so you don't have to make the same mistakes I did. I'm sharing the EXACT principles and strategies that I *eventually* figured out that helped transform my blog into a profitable business. This program is the culmination of everything I've learnt from taking The Department of Wandering from a side hobby into my leading source of income.

'Rachel's guidance and advice have been invaluable in my journey of travel blogging and writing.
She is a natural born teacher. Her patience and desire to see others succeed has created such a positive and rewarding relationship. She is a reliable and resourceful mentor whose upbeat, energetic personality has been my greatest encouragement.
I've gained confidence for my own business through her guidance, whether it's been through her openness in education regarding useful plugins, SEO friendly organization of blog posts, or counsel in reaching out to PR and media teams.
Rachel's blogging course is sure to change the lives of many others and propel their focus, and brand, in the right direction.'
– Mikkel Paige, Blogger, Sometimes Home
'Rachel was great with answering questions and providing feedback in a timely and supportive manner. It was obvious that she wanted us to get as much out of her course as possible! And the Facebook LIVE sessions were great for making the course feel more personal.
Before taking Blog Boost, I didn't know anything about keyword research, bounce rate or editorial calendars... Rachel covered all this in Blog Boost and more so now I know what to post, when to post and how often to post and all the little things that go far when it comes to SEO. I feel much more in control of my blog after completing Blog Boost!'
– Susan Czyzo, Blogger, By Susan Czyzo
Since completing Blog Boost I am heaps more organised. I have scheduled posts 3 weeks in advance. Can I just repeat that... I have scheduled posts 3 WEEKS IN ADVANCE.'

Rachel is a great and thorough teacher! You'll love her approach, and you can tell she was a teacher in her past life!
