Everything you’ve wanted to learn in blogging classes in one day
WHO IS LEADING THE DISCUSSION?
Dan R Morris, the mind behind Common Sense Revenue, has been using online tools to drive revenue since 2008. Dan spends his time working with bloggers to increase their revenue, improve their quality of life and time with family (without revenue loss), reduce their economic dependency on one source, and help them create a business that’s both scalable and leveraged.
Dan has been working online since 2008 when he got involved with the marketing of an antioxidant nutritional supplement. Through radio and TV infomercials curious customers would research the product and buy it online. Dan worked on marrying the messaging with the audience’s goals to increase sales and customer retention.
He has worked with bloggers, niche website owners, restaurants, tutors, national brands, and professional speakers (among others). Dan primarily works with clients in mastermind groups, private consulting, group classes, workshops, and through customized consulting agreements.

Who is a good fit for this workshop?
Bloggers who have traffic to their websites, have been blogging for a while, are making a little money but are ready to take the next steps are the best fit for this program.
If you’ve tried Adsense, affiliate marketing, sponsored posts or membership sites as a monetization course, you’d be perfect for this class.
What I’d like to avoid are “first week bloggers”. If you just installed your blog for the first time, this is not the conference for you. Leave a comment and I can point you in the right direction, but here we’re not going to be addressing “what is a plugin” or any basic WordPress skill.
WHERE ARE WE GOING TO MEET?
We haven’t met at a famous place yet. . . but in the blogging world the offices of Ahalogy, the world’s premiere image marketing data, this might be it.
This place is hip, I tell ya. So make sure you check into Foursquare when you show up, Instagram the place, SnapChat yourself, and make sure you’re carrying some sort of Starbucks drink. (That’s still hip, isn’t it?)
This conference will be held
The offices of Ahalogy!
