Graduates of the Sticky Blogging courses include more than 3,000 bloggers spanning every niche. Here are a few of their stories…
There's a huge difference between "here's a recipe" and that feeling of sitting down in your living room with your girlfriends, passing around your favorite recipes that really work for your family. It's the connection. And I've seen firsthand that one "sticky" post is more valuable to me than three or four that aren't."
Rebecca Cooper, Simple As That
While taking the Sticky Blogging master class, my eyes opened. I started to actually connect with my readers. After several big shares on social media and a viral post, I was sold. Kelly’s course was the knowledge I needed to take my blog to the next level.
Since taking her course, my page views grew by 5x."

Boy, was I wrong.
People still read blogs. Yes, they want your photos, recipes, and instructions. But if the writing doesn't hit the mark, people will give the whole enchilada a thumbs down. They won't stick around and read all the way to the end.
And so after 12 years of blogging, I did something that might sound a little crazy. I signed up for a blogging course: the Sticky Blogging master class.
The results after updating just one post? I got more than double the traffic the same post got a year earlier. And all I did was update that post using the strategies I learned in Kelly's course.
This course changed the way I plan my content, how I write my email newsletters, my process for coming up with headlines, how much time I spend blogging (it's way less!), and so much more.
The people I drive to my blog from Pinterest are now sticking around. Return users are increasing month-over-month according to Google Analytics. And my email list grew 25 percent in the last 4 months!"

While taking the full course, I had a couple of important sponsored posts lined up. I decided to take some of Kelly's concepts for a spin. After finishing my first "sticky" post, I emailed the agency to let them know I was ready for revisions.
The agency's response? The client is blown away. There's not a single revision. Please share it as soon as possible. That's almost unheard of; brands always have revisions.
Needless to say, I've used Sticky Blogging strategies in every single sponsored post on my schedule since then. When you take the time to wow an agency, they offer you sponsored work again and again. Repeat clients pave the road to financial success.
In today's online environment, it can feel nearly impossible for new bloggers to catch the attention of brands. Follow Sticky Blogging guidelines in your day-to-day writing, and you'll stand out. This is how to leave your competition in the dust."
This is the first blogging course I've ever taken that I have completed start to finish. I was excited about the lessons because they're relevant to what I'm doing every day, whether for my own site or other writing that I do. Each lesson was presented in a manageable chunk with clear, doable action steps. I highly recommend the Sticky Blogging master course to other bloggers. Kelly is now on my short list (she's one of two people on it!) of course instructors whose course content I can trust to be excellent, sight unseen.
I loved the layout of the course and appreciated how active Kelly was in the private course community. Since taking Sticky Blogging, I've taken three other online courses, and they made me realize how well-organized the Sticky Blogging course is. I didn't realize I was spoiled!"
Kris Bales; Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers
I love how easy it is to read one of Kelly’s trainings and implement the technique on my own blog right away. Instantly improving my writing and encouraging my readers to stick around!"
Nicole Schwarz, Imperfect Families
I've found that I think about what I learned every time I write a new post. The Sticky Blogging master class is worth every penny!"
Kerry Flatley, Self-Sufficient Kids
The two posts I wrote where I feel like I've best used the Sticky Blogging method – they went viral for me!"
