Long and detailed course. Extremely put together for someone new to blogging or a novice! Highly recommend!
Very insightful. I learned a lot!
Quite technical and comprehensive. So many softwares unveiled and necessary to research and review. Summarily the course was quite interesting. Who would have thought there would be so much technicalities to it!
great love it !!!
Very informative. Thank you.
This is a very good course for those new to blogging and willing to understand the underlying dynamics and how to optimize the results from a blog. Definitely worthwhile! I did have to pause every now and then and go back to review because the pace is quite fast and there are also some assignments to do in between the chapters. Great value!
Very useful, I really appreciated that it covered both high-level concepts as well as executional, including recommendations for free and paid tools.
Wow! This course went way beyond expectations of just Blog Content Strategy! It's definitely an advanced course that I highly recommend experienced bloggers take!
Excellent course, very informative, engaging, easy to follow and learn, I enjoyed every moment of this course, and am ready to blog and build blogs!
This course takes the rather unsexy topics of SEO and blog optimisation and turns them into manageable chunks that are easy to implement. He does cover a lot of material, often speaks fast, and uses the industry lingo but the quality and practicality of the content is great.
Really a valuable and great course. Instructor has covered the topics in-depth and have shared many tools, which makes SEO process very easy.
Great course, packed with easy to understand tips, resources and a step by step approach to covering everything one needs to know to create a blog content strategy
Very comprehensive and educative
I found the course very informative and practical. only content promotion area I think a bit complicated for beginners. I learn a lot of practical knowledge and hopefully going to apply on my own blog as well as on Fiverr. Thanks, Ian cleary
I am not particularly computer or web-savvy, so much of this info was over my head. And there was a lot of info. But probably a great course for someone with more basic knowledge of the web, and social media, than me. Thanks.
Simply outstanding. If you are a beginner blogger or advance one, this course is worth taking the shot. Value packed, to the point, informative, thorough and practical. I was doubtful before enrolling that duration is too short but this 2 hours equals 10 hours of any other course !!
The course content was professional but the sound quality can be further improved.
It was a GREAT course and I took many, many notes!! It definitely expanded what I can offer to my present clients and future clients which has increased my value.
Thank you very much!!

Complete and easy to follow
This is such an informative course that breaks down big topics into small chunks that makes them so much easier to grasp.
I've learnt some great skills and recommend this course to everyone.
Awesome! Really informative and helpful!
I enjoyed the course and learned allot thanks.
As a newbie to the trade (50 gigs on Fiverr), I found this course to be very insightful. A bit overwhelming, but I'm not complaining. I just took a lot of notes and screenshots so I could come back to it for a refresher. I also Ian's other course on blogging.
Very precise and valuable course. I will be implementing this for my client's inside and outside of Fiverr. Definitely worth it!
Excellent information. Even an experienced content strategist and blogger can pick up a few tricks from this material!
Great blogging strategies and the course offers a lot of resources in terms of analytics and optimization of your blog.
This course is superbly laid out, with great information. Highly recommend it to those starting on the journey of Blog Content Strategy!
This course is exceptional. Ivan has created a fantastic course that, even though being concise, covers all the key aspects of building a Blog Content Strategy. This is the best course I have ever purchased and it is definitely worth the money. I wish Ivan immense success and hope that many other fellow bloggers and freelancers like me get the opportunity to learn from him.
Very good intermediate course on how to create an awesome blog content strategy! Ian shows us exactly which tools to use, and how to use them to drastically optimize our game plans. Thanks a bunch!
An excellent guide to implementing a content strategy from the ground up. Easy to follow and very informative with lots of resources provided.
Well detailed and really helpful. Thanks a bunch.
Very well organized course. I have learnt a lot about content marketing, building a content and convert visitors into customers.
Having purchased the Website Blog and SEO Course, it taught me so many things. Highly recommend it to anyone learning about Blog and SEO. Very informative and helped me enormously towards developing Websites for my Fiverr clients and Ranking my Fiverr clients websites high and top on Google.
Great course, to be honest, I got what I expected! Valuable information! Thank you
Great course learned a lot. It goes really in depth and gives you everything you need to be successful thank you!
really enjoyed it thank you!
I thought the course was well organized and clearly articulated, however, I didn't really feel it offered me anything groundbreaking. I felt I had come across most of it before and thought there were areas that could have been explained in more detail. This course will not have you ready to take on clients - period. You'll need to research in detail all of the points presented if you are serious about offering your "Blog Content Strategy". This wasn't a bad course, but it wasn't for me and I've been left with buyer's remorse. It may be different for you.
Awesome information, brilliant downloads to start implementing what you learn straight away. Because I always knew a lot of the content, this was a fab refresher and would recommend to newbies too.
Great course learned a lot!
Good course for beginners but I was expecting a little more strategies and techniques to create blog content strategy for clients. Thank you.
Really useful and interesting course. It's definitely something that I can see myself referring back to in the future.
Goes really in depth and gives you everything you need to be successful
Course is for beginners. Should be another course for high level.
The course absolutely rocks and comes with templates. The speaker accent is Irish and may need subtitles...but to use as a point is not really because the blog strategy has an international side of the river/ocean explanation on blog strategy. Awesome!
So much useful information on how we can improve strategy for our clients!
Gave me a lot of awesome on free tools! Also helped me create a good work flow and process! I'm so glad I went through the course
Best course ever!
Excellent ideas and straight-forward implementation plans
I totally recommend it :)
Very informative and practical, I got a lot out of this!
Although I had more expectations, I wanted more hands on and examples. But he looks like he knows what he is doing.
Great information! Course discusses a number of free SEO tools and other services that are helpful for optimization and analytics.
Great Course. Thanks Ian!
I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Although I ended up taking it over a longer period of time that I had anticipated, it was well organized and allowed me to stay on top of my progress all the way through. I am looking forward to working new gigs of blog content strategy!
Very basic stuff, but useful for beginners. Best of luck!
The course was so interesting, it opened my eye with so many interesting tools and strategies i dont know about before but i have a question for the author regarding SEO yoast, my question is how do we make image to have ALT attributes
A very comprehensive overview of developing a blog content strategy. The number of online tools that were briefly shown as a bit much to keep track of. It would have been nice to have some downloads with summaries.
Overall a great opportunity to learn more about SEO industry and especially content promotion strategy. I have found one wrong question options that has been said that "alt" as an HTML tag although it is an attribute of tag.
Wonderful series which explains ins and outs of Blogging. Fantastic!!
Amazing course! Clear, valuable, and full of tools. I recommend it 100%
If you are on the fence about this course, jump on over. I had all the skills necessary to do a blog content strategy but I didn't know how to structure my research to successfully execute the strategy. This course is a blueprint to making any blog have better reach and return.
There were several instances where the video just wouldn’t play. It could be my phone/internet connection speed. Other than that, the course was outstanding!!!
Amazing Course. Learned a lot from this course. Highly Recommended.
Very useful information taught in a very useful way.
Good. The course was good. I have a lot of new and fresh ideas on how to apply smart thinking to my own blog and how to get good ranking on Google. I would have liked a bit more hands on, dirty work though. There was a lot of talk on how different services do different things, which is helpful, but I would have found it more interesting if we could have been given universal knowledge. Overall, great course for the right price.
