A very amazing and creative course to master! I highly would recommend to new buyers!

  • Scott

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.

  • Carolina

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.

  • miriyes

Amazing course! Clear, valuable, and full of tools. I recommend it 100%

  • lesleycat11

Really useful and interesting course. It's definitely something that I can see myself referring back to in the future.

  • Arrigo

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.

  • Zafar

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

  • penspearls

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!!!

  • emily_articles

Very comprehensive and educative

  • Raiyan

The course content was professional but the sound quality can be further improved.


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!

  • Francesco

Very enjoyable and comprehensive course on content marketing. It does not only contain a high level view on blog content strategy, but it also goes into the details of executing each and every steps of the process and all necessary the tools involved.

  • Sean

Great level of detail, and resources throughout this course! I will definitely be implementing these tools and processes for my own blog and hopefully some clients in the future! He focused on FREE TOOLS, which I definitely prefer, but also goes into detail about how you may be able to gain even more benefit from specific paid tools if you can afford the investment. I do wish the course provided some direct reference sources for some of that stats that were provided.

  • John

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.

  • mahbubulmottaqi

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.

  • Walter

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.

  • Chad

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!

  • Steven

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.

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!

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.

  • Victor

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


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.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the purpose of a blog?

    There are all kinds of blogs, serving all kinds of purposes. Personal blogs give an insight into the lives of their creators, but many businesses also create blogs. A successful blog can establish a business as a respected authority in its niche, and support SEO. Blog posts can also express the ‘personality’ of a business better than standard website content. Finally, blogs provide an opportunity for content marketing – a subtle form of marketing that allows you to wrap promotional messages in something of value, like an engaging article.

  • How do you write a blog article?

    Don’t dive in! Instead, take the time to research the topic and plan the structure of your article first. Every article should start engagingly – with words crafted to draw the reader deeper into the text. If you’re writing a long-form article, it’s usually best to break the content up with headers and sub-headers. Bullet points and numbered lists also provide a reader-friendly format. Avoid ‘fluff’ and make each word count. Finally, remember that writing isn’t a one-step process, so always be prepared to edit and improve your work.

  • What makes a blog successful?

    It’s not enough just to post great articles on your blog; these articles need to align with your blog content strategy. That strategy should allow you to connect with your audience – so you’ll need to understand who you’re targeting, and what they’re searching for. Next, you’ll need a plan to put your content in front of your audience – that’s where SEO and content promotion come in. Finally, never accept that your blog is ‘good enough’; keep analyzing and optimizing your content – and your content strategy.

  • Does blogging help SEO?

    Yes – blogging is one of the most powerful ways to improve a website’s position in the search results. Building a body of keyword-rich content helps search engines recognize what a website’s all about, so when you’re blogging for SEO reasons, it’s even more important to keep your posts on topic. As well as being a great way to target valuable keywords, articles and blog posts can also attract backlinks. Always remember, the key to getting backlinks organically is offering high-quality content that provides genuine value for your readers.

  • How do you do keyword research for a blog?

    Keyword research is vital for a blog’s success. The trick is finding search terms used by people interested in your niche. This starts with a little common sense, but there are also some great keyword-research tools you can use. Google’s Keyword Planner is a popular (and free) choice, but paid tools sometimes provide more detailed statistics. Not all keywords are equal. You should ideally target keywords that are popular with searchers, but not too competitive. It’s typically easier to rank for longtail keywords (which include 3+ words).

  • How do I become a freelance blog writer?

    Fiverr is the perfect place to launch your career as a freelance blog writer! Every day, our Articles and Blog Posts category is visited by a steady stream of buyers, all looking for blog writers. It’s a competitive niche, but this Blog Content Strategy course will help you stand out; the badge you earn will show buyers that you understand the strategies behind successful blogging. Top-notch writing skills are important too – so sharpen up by building a blog of your own, or contributing guest posts to established blogs!
