A STEP-BY-STEP PLAN FOR MAKING A LIVING ONLINE
“When I first started Elite Blog Academy, I had no idea what I was doing, but I was determined. I followed every single step of the program exactly as written. It took me 9 months to complete, but exactly one year after starting EBA, I was blogging full time and made $5,000 in one month alone. Two years later, I was earning $35,000 a month, and it has only gone up from there. Having taken many expensive online classes, I’m able to tell you that EBA® is the best! Ruth lays out step-by-step exactly what you need to do so that when you’ve completed it, you understand how to make a living from your blog.”
— Rosemarie Groner, The Busy Budgeter
YOUR DREAM BUSINESS IS WAITING
Here at EBA®, with over 11,000 students in 60 countries worldwide, we’ve refined and perfected the process of creating a successful, profitable and sustainable online business. We know what works and what doesn’t, and we’ll show you exactly what steps to take to create and grow the online business you’ve been dreaming of.
THE BEST BLOGGING COURSE OUT THERE
“I’m constantly asked what my recommendation is for my favorite overall blogging course, and that is Elite Blog Academy. I purchased Elite Blog Academy a few years ago and I truly believe that it’s the best blogging course out there.”
— Michelle Schroeder Gardner, Making Sense of Cents
MEET OUR INCREDIBLE ALUMNI
Since2014, we’ve mentored more than 11,000 students around the world. In that time, our students have seen stellar results, from creating wildly successful 6 and 7-figure businesses, to securing major book deals, brand partnerships, and national media coverage.
“Even if you are living paycheck to paycheck, it’s worth it.” –Rosemarie Groner
“The best investment you can make is an investment in yourself.” –Talat & Tai
MY SUCCESS SPEAKS FOR ITSELF
“What Elite Blog Academy did for me was set the foundation for success. Using the tips and tools I learned from EBA, I was able to bring thousands of people to Run The Money each month and made $10,000 between December 2017 and January 2018. That’s less than a year into starting the class. I’ve started other blogs and side hustles before, but I never followed a process to achieve success. EBA is that process — and my success speaks for itself.“
— David Domzalski, Run the Money
HEY THERE, I’M RUTH!
AND I’D REALLY LOVE TO BE YOUR FAIRY BLOG-MAMA….
Since launching my first blog, Living Well Spending Less, in 2010, my business has grown into a multi-million dollar company. I’ve become the New York Times bestselling author of 6 books, launched a top-rated podcast, and even given a TED talk.
But it didn’t start out that way!
When I first started, I struggled hard trying to figure it all out. There were SO many times I felt like quitting, and I can’t even tell you how often I secretly wished for some magical fairy blog-mama to share all her secrets of success. Sadly, she never appeared, but I swore to myself that if I ever did figure out the secret to blogging, I’d be that fairy blog-mama to someone else!
And that’s exactly what Elite Blog Academy is all about.
No, it’s not a magic wand, but it IS probably the next best thing: a clearly laid out, step-by-step guide that will show you, in crystal clear detail, exactly what to do.
It’s the secret blueprint for success you’ve been waiting for.
I DOUBLED MY TRAFFIC
“Since 2014, I’ve gone through the course three times. Every single time, I learn something new. Ruth’s teaching has proven correct through the years. Her wisdom isn’t based on the latest algorithm or fad but tried and true methods that withstand the test of time. Even after the first few lessons, I doubled the traffic on my blog. Since enrolling, my blog is more focused, more beautiful and more useful to my readers. Thank you, Ruth!”
— Elaine Mingus, Radical Christian Woman
FROM A TEACHER WHO’S BEEN THERE
Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed by the amount of expert advice available and wished someone could just show you, step by step, exactly what it takes to grow a successful, profitable online business?
Believe me, I get it. I have totally been there, and I know exactly how it feels.
JUST A STAY-AT-HOME MOM OF TWO TODDLERS
When I first started blogging, I was completely clueless. I was a stay-at-home mom of two little girls, and truth be told, I was going a little bit stir-crazy. I decided to start a blog about trying to live well on a budget, which was something I was really struggling with. The purpose of the blog at first was simply to hold myself accountable—I never dreamed that people would actually read it.
But almost right away, I discovered that there was this whole other world of blogs and bloggers and blogging, and that people were actually making money online. I knew I had found my people, and I wanted to be a part of it, and I soon set a goal to make enough money blogging that my husband could quit his job, even though it seemed completely crazy.
NOT AN EXPERT IN ANYTHING
At first it was hard and completely overwhelming to find my voice, and even to just figure out what to write about. Add to that the logistics of trying to grow an audience and somehow get paid for my time, and I was struggling. After all, I didn’t feel like I really had anything original to say. I was just a mom of two little girls. I certainly wasn’t an expert in anything, (much less saving money!).
I saw all these bloggers around me who had been doing it for so much longer. From the outside, it seemed like they knew exactly what they were doing. It felt like I was so far behind them that I’d never “catch up,” while offline none of my real-life friends understood either. Even my husband questioned what in the world I was doing. Truth be told, I think he thought I was completely nuts!
DETERMINED TO FIND MY WAY
But I knew that if other people were making money online, then it was actually possible, and that I could do it too. And so, despite the fact that I didn’t really know what I was doing, I was determined to make it work. I began learning everything I could about growing my traffic and creating a successful blog, and I started to gain a little more confidence as my efforts slowly began to pay off.
In a moment of frustration, I also swore to myself that if I could figure out how it’s done, I would try to help as many people as I could.
MAKING AN IMPACT
Ten years later, my business reaches more than a million subscribers and generates a 7-figure income. But more importantly, my message is resonating with people and it’s helping them live a better life. So now, the more I share, the more impact I’m able to have.
Every day I receive emails from readers whose lives have been impacted by words I’ve shared, and that’s pretty amazing.
NOT THE END OF THE STORY
But this story doesn’t stop with me, because I want the same for you. No matter what your message is, I will show you how to reach your tribe and effortlessly draw them in. I’ll show you how to turn that loyal following into a full-time income and I’ll show you how you can do it by focusing on a few key activities that will make all the difference. This is the exact plan I continue to follow to this day. And it is the plan I lay out in detail at Elite Blog Academy.
NOT JUST FOR BEGINNERS
“I was blogging for 6 years before I started EBA, and I went through every single module and got something from all of them, even the ones where I thought I knew a lot about that specific topic. It is a great guide for anyone who wants to go from being just a blogger to having a blogging business.”
A PROVEN BLUEPRINT FOR SUCCESS
Over seven years and 11,000+ students, we’ve learned what really works….and what doesn’t. Our powerful, game-changing framework is designed to get you the massive results you are looking for, in less time, with far less frustration than if you tried to do it on your own.
Here’s a look at how our course is structured:
The first phase of creating a successful, profitable blog is to refine your message–not just what you say, but how you want your readers to feel when they come to your site. Elite Blog Academy will show you exactly how to refine this message of yours, to hone and craft it and perfect it until it is part of you, and until every single person who comes across your blog can tell at a glance what you are all about. More importantly, they’ll know what they have to gain by being there.
For experienced bloggers, this will immediately allow you to forge a deeper connection with your audience, and begin cultivating a real tribe of raving fans.
HIGHLIGHTS OF MODULE 1:
- Nailing down your blog structure & tagline.
- Creating your customer avatar.
- Learning how to write with F.O.C.U.S.
- Designing the perfect website to showcase your brand.
The second phase in our EBA framework is to grow your audience. Finding people to actually read your blog can sometimes feel like a daunting prospect, but it doesn’t have to be. From list-building and SEO to viral growth using social media, at Elite Blog Academy we’ll provide you with an armory of proven, detailed strategies for how to get your message heard and shared. You’ll never feel unsure of how to get more traffic again.

- Crafting your elevator pitch in order to convey your message clearly & succinctly.

- Creating your first lead magnet and autoresponder campaign.
- Learning how to grow your email list quickly and easily.
- Developing a cohesive & effective social media strategy.
The third phase in our EBA framework is to monetize your platform. This is where the rubber meets the road and where blogging starts to get really fun, because it is where all the hard work you have put in starts to really pay off and multiply. But believe it or not, not all income streams are created equal, and at Elite Blog Academy you’ll learn exactly where to focus your efforts in order to maximize your bottom line and skyrocket your profits.
For experienced bloggers, this module is where you will see a dramatic boost in revenue as you begin to hone in on ROI and more effective and advanced monetization techniques.
HIGHLIGHTS OF MODULE 3:
- Nailing down your monetization strategy in order to begin generating a steady income from your online platform.
- Developing your first real product.
- Planning and executing a “Baby Seed Launch” to introduce your new product to your audience.
- Mastering the art of sales & marketing, from writing sales copy to building a sales page and so much more.
The fourth and final phase of creating a successful, profitable blog is to build your business. This is the point where you realize that you are not just a blogger, but an entrepreneur, and this is also the point at which you can really take off and begin to find massive success. Elite Blog Academy will show you how to work smarter, not harder, and how to build momentum that keeps you going long after you’ve completed your course work.
As an experienced blogger, this module will be key to your future growth and sustainable revenue, answering many of your business-related concerns.
HIGHLIGHTS OF MODULE 4:
- Learning how to maximize your time and energy and work a whole lot smarter, not harder.
- Crafting a long-term business strategy for sustainable growth, long into the future of your online business.
- Changing the way you look at your blog, as not your business itself but as the most important marketing tool of your business.
- Truly becoming the CEO & leader of your company and understanding how and when to grow your team.
I QUIT MY JOB AND I’LL NEVER LOOK BACK
“The moment I heard about blogging for profit through EBA, I knew it was my calling. EBA held my hand through every step of the process and made me believe that I can create a thriving business all on my own. I quit my corporate job to focus on my business and I will never look back. I wake up every morning with purpose and drive. I’m completely overjoyed that my job is all on my own volition.”
– Kylee Gano, Theme Parks for Grown Ups

FROM BRAND NEW TO FULL-TIME
“I bought EBA and started my blog the same day. A year after starting EBA, I made as much money in one MONTH as I did the entire year before from my part-time desk job. My biggest win is that for the first time in my life I am making an income doing something that I love to do. I have never created something myself that I was proud of before and it feels amazing.”
— Carly Campbell, Mommy on Purpose

It truly is the most uplifting, encouraging, and supportive group of like-minded entrepreneurs that you will ever find.
When Jay Kruger began blogging, he had an idea of what he wanted to do. What he did not have was a plan to get there. EBA gave him the guidance that he needed and a place to connect with bloggers who understand what he is doing because they are all going through the exact same thing.
Jay has been following EBA’s framework since the very beginning of his blog. His launch month saw over 1k visitors and his traffic has only grown from there!
Like many of our students, Amanda Waterston started EBA as a total newbie, just setting up her new website, The Frugal Little House.
Still working full-time, she fought for time to work on her business but she completed her course assignments one by one, and was earning the same income from her blog as her full-time job nearly a year later!
Prior to joining EBA in 2018, Rachel Muur blogged more as a creative outlet and did not understand that she could make real money with it.
Still working full-time and being a mom of two young kids, EBA helped her turn her hobby into a profitable business the following year!
Going through EBA® helped The Debt Free Guys look at their blog as a business. David and John became crystal clear on who they were writing to, and once they did, their traffic and income followed.
Their list grew 9x and their traffic doubled! They’re now the number one personal finance blog and podcast for the LGBT community, and they’re having a blast while doing it.
