Everything you’ve wanted to learn in blogging classes in one day
WHO IS LEADING THE DISCUSSION?
Dan R Morris, the mind behind LettersFromDan.com, 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.
“Lauren Greutman is a mom of 4 kids under the age of 8, she started blogging at iamthatlady.com in 2010 to share her tips on saving people money. Quickly after starting her blog she realized that she could use the money she made to pay her son’s private school tuition, and help her get out of debt. Her blog has quickly grown to be one of the largest ones in New York State, where she gets over 5 million visits per year.
She is is a regular guest on both CNY Central News Channel 3 & 5, as well as 9-WSYR in Syracuse and is known as the go-to contact for all money related stories. She is a back-up co-host of News Channel’s 9’s Bridge Street Show and has also had her blog featured in National Publications like All You Magazine and the Dr. oz Magazine. She has appeared on the largest news station in the US – WNBC out of New York City, and is a professional at teaching you how to get your blog into the media.
She has recently written her first book titled ‘Insufficient Funds’, which is due to release in 2014. Her husband Mark works as an Actuary and, of course, helps with iamthatlady.com.”

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?
So Blogging Concentrated started at a scrapbooking bed-and-breakfast. Then we moved to a public library, a co-working space, a coffee factory, a hotel, a university alumni room and the corporate headquarters of a car wash company, a kids entertainment place. . .and now an Italian Restaurant.
(I’m very much looking forward to the smell of Italian food. Mmmmmmm…..)
There’s nothing quite as cool as the amazingly diverse places we meet.
