Let’s Be Honest

 

Let’s be real for a sec. There’s a lot of fluff being fed to you by various “superstar” bloggers that promise you a lot, but don’t actually do much.

The five minute this, the five minute that.

No.

I will show you HOW to reach MORE people, GROW YOUR BLOG, and reach success at a level you never knew existed.

NO BULLSHIT, NO HYPE, NO NONSENSE.

JUST RESULTS.

What’s up, this is Cristian,

If you know me personally – you know I’m all about standards. That’s why I’ve spent the last year METICULOUSLY PERFECTING a new way of teaching YOU how to become an true artist of blogging.

But more on that later…

See, there are THOUSANDS of self-proclaimed gurus and books that teach “blogging”, but the truth is:

None of them explain the PRACTICAL STEPS of
HOW to become successful.

And even more importantly…

The mindset that is required to BECOME GREAT.

You are about to go on a journey with me…

This is a TRUE STORY – no media slant, no sugar-coating, no nonsense…

Only real, raw, uncensored lessons for you to learn from.

So let’s start with my experience being invisible.

Yes, that’s right.

I used to have a blog that barely got 4-500 views a month. No comments. It was a NIGHTMARE. The roller coaster of emotions I went through and the dark thoughts I had were INTENSE.

I would think to myself that it was unfair. It really was. I knew I wanted to find the right audience, to inspire people, to motivate folks. I had passion. I had the hunger…

But no one could see it.

No one cared.

So, I decided to read. About anything. To study other blogs. To network with folks who’d get more readers in an hour than I got in a month.

Here’s the deal…

When I started on my blogging journey, I thought writing a bunch of articles would be easy. I thought getting readers would be easy.

After all, all my favorite bloggers were doing just that. Right?

Uhm… not so much.

There’s so much to learn. 

Seven years of experience, it’s yours for only $129.99 $79.99(save 38%).

No catch. No fluff. No bullshit.

WHAT DO YOU GET FOR YOUR MONEY?

  • A detailed written feedback on your blog, where I tell you what is what. Everything from the visual layout to headlines, intros, the content itself, social media integration.
  • A one-on-one Skype session with me, where I am going to offer you the kind of advice very few people on the planet can give you. The kind of game plan that is going to take your blog to the stratosphere.

One chat with me is enough to make you realize that you are, indeed, a true artist of blogging.

THAT IS MY GOAL FOR YOU

That’s why I am granting you access to me via Skype, access to the kind of blogging secrets that will blow your mind.

There’s nothing like getting the information right from the source
– it brings clarity and a certain sense of comfort.

You will be able to ask ANY QUESTIONS YOU HAVE,
and have them answered for you LIVE,
by me PERSONALLY!

There really isn’t anything quite as powerful as having me right there at your fingertips.

Whether you need to clear away any confusion on a topic, or go above-and-beyond on a specific paradigm, I’ll be available to answer you.

Let me take you by the hand and walk you down the path to being a blogging rockstar. A blogstar.

I am 100% confident that working with me will push you ABOVE and BEYOND your previous level of capability

We will set your purpose CRYSTAL CLEAR in front of you, and you will use it as a compass to guide you every step of the way. From now, every step you take will feel EFFORTLESS and come from a place of POWER and CERTAINTY.

This is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY!

I put my HEART and SOUL into helping you out, because I know how much of IMPACT it can do to your BLOGGING.

A moment like this only comes along ONCE IN A LIFETIME.

A wise man once said, “Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow.”

      1. Can you give a brief skim of my blog and just give me a very brief overall vague idea of what I could expect for that kind of money? Not asking you to give away what I’d pay for, just trying to understand if it is something you could help with such a niche site.

      2. Ok. I can offer you some pointers, stuff like that. The good, the bad, the ugly, what needs to be changed.

        I can reply to this comment with the feedback or send it to you via e-mail if you give me your e-mail address. Whichever you prefer.

      3. Hi Susan,

        1. I censored your e-mail address because I thought you didn’t want that to go public.
        2. I sent you some feedback on your headlines to your e-mail address. Do check your junk folder or spam folder if you didn’t receive it. My address is contact [at] cristianmihai [dot] net.
        3. I think you gave me an idea, and might even offer something like this for free to my readers. I mean, offer them a taste of the kind of feedback I offer with my one-on-one coaching. So thank you for this!
        4. I hope that short feedback helps you even a little bit on your blogging journey.

        Cheers,

        Cristian

      4. I gave you an idea… hey does that earn a discount? Who knows what else I could offer? Lol. Thank you for the thought but that is the email address I use for the site and public forums. If we worked together I would give you a different address- one I use with publishers, etc.

        I think giving an idea before asking people to anti up is always helpful. Now at your price I wouldn’t say the following but I keep trying to get it through to wordpress that it is insane that they don’t allow people to pay monthly, especially once you get above the premium level. That is a car payment. One, it doesn’t show any faith in your product nor care for your demographics (which is mostly bloggers and entrepreneurs/start-up businesses). Good to know you hear your potential customeres.

      5. Fair enough. You can use discount code: ART2019 for 15 dollars off.

        Yes, I thought about that as I was deleting the e-mail address from the comment, but then I thought maybe you don’t just share that address with everyone.

        Well, it is… in a way. Depends. The WordPress Plans are fully refundable within 30 days. I know because I had the Business Plan and asked for a refund, because it was not worth the money, and it many ways was worse than the Premium one. So, I guess that’s why they don’t offer a free trial thing. I also offer a money back guarantee, so maybe that’s why I didn’t think of that.

        As for monthly payments: yeah, it’s weird. They used to do that for the Enterprise Plan, but that was 500$ a month, so…

      6. The email is impressive for just a tidbit. I like the headline tips. So would I send you posts ahead of time and you would give pointers to improve or monitor the blog daily and give tips after the fact?

        Could the one hour be broken up into multiple calls… say once a week 20 minute calls for 3 weeks or have you tried that and found it not beneficial.

        With the 15 off, what does that bring the total down to? I know it was already discounted.

        Liked by 1 person

      7. No. Just like the headlines bit, I’d go through your blog (well, more in depth of course) and offer you feedback on all the other elements, such as the content, the visual layout, social media integration, the way you write introductions, the way you end your posts, stuff like that.

        Then we schedule the Skype chat and develop a strategy, you get to ask question, we laugh (I’m not particularly funny, but sometimes people laugh at me trying to be serious or failing or at my Romanian accent). Well, the truth is that 20 minutes is kind of a short time for a Skype call. An hour is shorter than you think, and this was never requested of me, so…

        With that 15$ discount, the total is $54.99.

      8. Ok… so when it comes to working better with publishers, seo/Google (or is that included in social media integration because I’m not getting back on FB and Instagram is lost in me lol- especially since I have so few hard copy arcs- I would need a lot more) but I’m assuming in your assessment the follower numbers would follow and even though I’ve jumped from 400 views/200 visitors in Feb to 1600 views/950 visitors in April that you could do even better than those numbers?

        How long do we work together for 55 dollars because right now I’m seriously considering it unless 55 dollars only gets me a month let’s say?

        Liked by 1 person

      9. Well there’s not a period, exactly.

        I offer you feedback on all your blog. By going through all your posts, and then offering that comprehensive feedback. Then we do the Skype chat, and we get to develop a strategy for your next months, you get to ask questions.

        I usually provide the initial feedback within a week or so, and then we schedule the Skype call.

        If you want something long term, and work more together, and get more for your money, there’s the 0 to 5K Program. Six months, a guarantee of five thousand new followers, feedback, ideas, and all lot more. But it’s $299 for 6 months, and I don’t do monthly installments.

        You choose what works for you, and what exactly you need. And if you’d like to work with me more, or just get a general idea of where you’re supposed to be headed.

        For 89$ a month you get access to a bunch of cool tutorials and blog posts and e-books (I’m selling them short right now. They’re really good.) And you’ll also be mentored by me, inIncluding two hourly Skype chats per month, access to me via e-mail/chat app.

      14. Never say never…

        And, yes, of course. Do you review only ARCs or do you also review books that are available on Amazon? You can add affiliate links, like I do when I review books and movies and tv show on my online magazine. And you earn something like a dollar for every book that is purchased through your link. Might not sound like much, but have an extremely popular blog, and it becomes quite the amount.

        Also, ads. Wordads.co is the only way to go for WordPress.com blogs. You need to have a certain number of views/visitors per day, and once they accept you, you start earning. But you do go 50-50 with WordPress, so you earn less as opposed to having a self-hosted blog.

        It takes time. Don’t expect to be making thousands of dollars of month. Not until the end of the year. It’s rare that you even get to sell a blog for a couple thousand dollars in a few months, let alone earn that much from it.

      22. It does. You want to earn money from your blog, not sell it to someone.

        But making money is the side-effect of being an awesome blogger. If your main goal is to make money, and ASAP, it’s not going to happen. It’s just how it is. That’s why I write about blogging, not making money blogging. And your perspective on things makes a huge difference.

      23. I dont expect it overnight or anything… truthfully the only thing I’m impatient about is that I feel like I’ve hit a roadblock with publishers that I need to push through. That and that I dont know enough about seo and search engines to push forward on followers to build on wherever this burst of unknown momentum has come from… plus I could probably leverage linked in better.

  1. I apologize for all the questions. My blog is growing exponentially as far as views on it’s own although I honestly couldnt tell you why. I can’t see search terms. I don’t know how to code for Google and SEO and I while publishers and I are doing well on electronic ARCs I would like to build into more hard copies where I’m not asking and they are just sending.

    Also my actual following isn’t growing like I would like… so I have no idea why I get the visitors/views I get with so few followers. It’s odd. Well to me it is, anyway.

    1. No worries. Oddly enough, I like answering questions. It’s easier than coming up with stuff or trying to fill a blank document.

      Well, maybe you get your views from search engines mostly, hence the lack of new followers. People search for a particular book, find your blog, read the review, and then go on their way. They seldom follow, because odds are they don’t even have a WordPress account to do that.

      There are, of course, certain steps to ensure that you get more followers. Blogging is not magic, but it does feel like it. It felt like it to me back when I first started, and I was “blessed” to have a few posts go viral early on, and found myself with 25K followers after six months, earning about $100/day from donations alone, and no idea what I was doing. That didn’t last very long, precisely because I didn’t know what I was doing.

  3. I’ve been doing my own research with blogging, which brought me to your info-packed blog 😊
    I had a very successful blog for 5 years, but took it down for some stupid reason… Anyway, I’m back.
    I read about and agree that a small giveaway, trial or gift really gets folks to take action. A sample of your feedback may be just enough to seal-a-deal with a new blogger.

    I have one odd question.
    When coming up with a company name, do you go with catchy or plain Jane obvious? I’ve had both, but my recent ‘catchy’ choice (Naturarian), isn’t getting caught by the masses… Let alone them being able to pronounce it 🤣

    1. Hi,

      Why did you take down your blog? Did you delete it for good or you can recover it?

      And, yes, I think that free works better than giveaways, simply because I find giveaways too be a bit too aggressive: “Follow us, and maybe you’ll win this and that.” Don’t know. Maybe it’s just me.

      If you want me to offer you the same sample and analyze an aspect of your blog, do let me know, and I will send that to you ASAP.

      As for your question: catchy, but also easy to pronounce, easy to spell, easy to remember. Something short, if that is possible. “The Art of Blogging” is pretty obvious, but I also have an online magazine named “irevuo” which is the shortest six letter word I could think of.

      2. I was half teasing. You have put up with more questions than more than anyone I know and I am Brooklyn Italian born and raised for 32 years before moving to St. Louis. I am well aware of my ability to be a pain in the ass. Being on a seriously tight budget because being a starving artist (which isnt nearly as romantic as people make it sound) just ups the anti on key being a pain. So you’ve earned an initial level of trust. I’m thinking I do the patreon plan so I make sure we do work together well and you can put up with me and that there is real value add, which I’m sure there will be but being that I’m starting a new job and such I do feel better that just in case of a financial blunder I can cancel and come back if need be. So how do we start?
