Who the heck Am I ?
My name is Mel Karlik and I'm a blogger, web designer and developer. On my own blog (A Prettier Web) I've grown my list to 6,000+ in just under a couple of years using the same strategies that I share with you in this course. I have also been working with WordPress for over 10 years so I know my way around it VERY well. I have tested out TUNS of plugins and tools and know the BEST ones to use that are also AFFORDABLE (most plugins I suggest are totally FREE).
What You Get ....
You'll get access to videos and trainings in a members only area PLUS a WorkBook to help step you through action steps
What You Create...
You'll learn how to create all different types of Pretty Opt-in Forms branded fit with your own website
What If I Don't Have a List?
No problem! These are things that you can add to your website from DAY 1. In fact, most bloggers say the #1 regret they have about their website was not starting an email list sooner. My videos provide step-by-step training that you can easily follow.
Do I Need WordPress?
Half of the course is really actionable step-by-step instruction for WordPress users. While, there is a lot of great information in here for ANY blogger, the tech trainings are all for a self hosted WordPress Website.
Do I Need MailChimp or Convertkit?
Most of the plugins do actually work on a variety of email solutions but I have provided tech trainings specifically for MailChimp + Convertkit which are also two of the most popular tools for bloggers.
Will I Need to Pay for Extra Tools or Plugins?
You should have a self hosted WordPress website and ideally have either MailChimp (free up until 2,000 subscribers) or Convertkit. Then, most of the plugins I give training for are free or SUPER affordable (nothing over $30).
