Food Blogger Pro will be closing registration on November 19th.
As a little background for those of you who are all WHAAAS GOING ON , here’s the short story.
Food Blogger Pro is a learning community that Bjork and I created two and half years ago as a way to provide valuable teaching and networking opportunities to individuals in the food blogging community. Today our FBP tribe (FBP meaning Food Blogger Pro – I’m going to go acronym-heavy on you from here on out) is made up of more than 1,000 food blogging members and it’s powered by a small team *shout out to Beth, Raquel, and Jasmine* who help make the resource magic happen. Both Bjork and I are so excited about what Food Blogger Pro has become and where it’s headed.
And speaking of where it’s headed.
The reason for this post today is that big change that I mentioned: we are changing our enrollment structure in a way that will have significant implications for any current or future members.
As of November 19th at 11:59pm CST, Food Blogger Pro will be closed for new member registration.
Which means RIGHT NOW that we are in the last public enrollment phase until Spring 2016.
Which means that now’s your time.
If food blogging is (or could be!) your jam, let’s do dis.
Food Blogger Pro is a place where busy food bloggers can efficiently connect and learn how to take their food blogs to the next level.
Like how short I kept that explanation? You have no idea how many times I’ve edited that one single sentence. Signed, the girl who loves words.
First: a video tour! Join me?
There are 300+ videos (3-5 minutes each) categorized into topics and courses.
Members have access to live events, interaction during the events (chat, Q&A, etc.) and the ability to review recordings once they are complete.
(Sometimes Sage makes a cameo. Worth it.)
I can’t exactly show you this in detail because then I’d be giving the world all of our discount codes but members also get access to exclusive Food Blogger Pro discounts for tools and services that we use and love, like Erickson Wood Works (photography backgrounds) or TextExpander (a favorite email tool that Bjork and I use religiously) to name a few.
This is a copy-and-paste tool that gives you a downloadable nutrition label for your recipes. Boom! Easy as pie. I use this in every Pinch of Yum recipe post.
One of the things we hear most often from members is how much they love the community forum. This is a place to connect with other bloggers and get quick answers to your specific questions.
What if I haven’t started a food blog yet?
We actually have a full course dedicated to our members who want to start a food blog but haven’t gotten up and running yet. It’s called “Getting Started” – and it includes over 40 short and easy-to-understand lessons that will walk you through the things you need to know about food blogging.
What if my blog isn’t about food?
Obviously, based on the name of the community, we keep the content really tightly geared towards food bloggers. That being said, 10-15% of members have a blog that’s not focused on food. While the concepts are taught from (and to) a food bloggers perspective, many can be applied to other genres and niches.
What if I want to join in December? or January? or some other time?
That’s where things get tricky. Enrollment to Food Blogger Pro is not going to be open after November 19th. This is our last public enrollment until Spring 2016.
What if I only want a month or two of membership?
Not a problem. There is no contract, no minimum length of membership, no nothing for members who sign up right now. You can cancel at any time.
Food Blogger Pro is NOT for you if you:
- Have lots of time to research solutions to your blogging challenges;
- Are confident in your game plan for building traffic and income;
- Are already connected with a supportive group of bloggers.
Food Blogger Pro IS the right fit if you:
- Feel alone and unsure of how to get connected in the food blogging community;
- Are frustrated with your traffic and income;
- Need a time-saving solution for getting answers to your blogging questions.
With Food Blogger Pro, we will tackle these problems head-on.
You’ll easily get connected, make a plan for increasing your traffic and income, and save time by getting the answers you need all in one place.
Tieghan from Half Baked Harvest:
Food Blogger Pro is a great tool for ANY blogger, whether you’re in the development stages or are looking to step things up. Food Blogger Pro will help you avoid timely, and potentially costly, mistakes by providing tips that have already been tested. I wish FBP had been around when I started my site; it would have made things SO much easier! Even so, I have gone back over some of the “getting started” tutorials and made very useful adjustments. Every section has valuable info that I have used to make my site run more effectively. I am STILL getting through all the tutorials, from helpful plugins to more effective SEO to photography tips to increasing revenue. I highly recommend Food Blogger Pro!
Dustin from A Sweet Pea Chef:
Lacey and I will cross our first $10k month in September. We are so amped to make more than my wife used to make in her job. Plus having a place to share this with and have people understand all the hard work that goes into getting there is super cool so thanks again Bjork and Lindsay. It was actually seeing how far you guys had progressed that made us give this a try again so it probably wouldn’t have happened if you hadn’t created Food Blogger Pro.
Beth from Budget Bytes:
After seeing your income report for April, I decided to get off my butt and actually put some effort into SEO and monetization. I set a goal to double my blog revenue within three months and, with the info provided by Food Blogger Pro, I was able to accomplish that goal in under 30 days! My revenue was already fairly large, so this was no small feat. This website and all of the easy to follow information is beyond valuable. Quitting my day job, paying off my student loans, and buying a house are now all realities of the very near future. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Alright, that’s a wrap!
