Welcome to Get Noticed, the online course for bloggers both new and experienced! Throughout this course, I hope to teach you a few things about getting more traffic to your blog and getting seen by thousands of new people. With this advice, I want to inspire you to realize that anybody can be a successful blogger. Yes, even you!
This course isn’t going to be a quick fix for an increase of visitors, but will instead show you how you can work towards your goals and build a following from the ground up. It will take a lot of work and dedication, but I know you are ready for it because you’ve taken the first step in joining this course!
I know there have been many times when you’ve probably thought: “nobody is reading my blog!” It can seem disheartening and really strip away your motivation to write posts when you think that nobody cares about what you write. I’m going to show you that people do care and most of the time it’s the lack of reach that is causing your problem.
You’ve probably seen many videos and blog posts regarding promoting your content online and building a following, yet you’ve still ended up here. While those tips may boost your confidence for a short period of time, they don’t help you to create an actual plan of action, which is the key to succeeding in getting noticed.
In this course you will learn different ways to reach an audience and techniques you can use to boost your visibility. We will cover content creation, social media, connecting with PR, guest posting, and more. I want you to be dedicated to climbing this hill with me, because you will only get out of it what you put into it!
I am not an expert. I only know what has worked for me and the two blogs that I built from nothing. I had a background in web design and the technical aspects of creating a website, but blogging and blog promotion was a completely new mountain for me to tackle when I began. I’ve been able to turn those blogs into my occupation and main source of income, and if I can do it, anyone can.
I started blogging back in 2011 as a way to promote products I was hand-creating. Like many of you, I was told that a blog was a necessity for any business as it could draw huge amounts of traffic to your items and boost sales! While all of that sounded GREAT, I was just like you in the beginning… I had no idea how to actually get those potential visitors and customers to my blog.
So, I started doing what we’ve all probably done and spammed my link anywhere and everywhere, hoping to gain some sort of traction. While that may have somewhat worked in the short term, it wasn’t realistic for the long term. For that to actually work, I’d have to dedicate hours every day to promoting my stuff!
As I continued blogging, I discovered that I could be doing so much more with my online space. I decided to transform my blog into a personal place of life, crafts, and of course my handmade ventures, instead of simply using it as a huge advertisement. I found that I actually liked this whole “blogging thing” more than I realized! This time, though, I was going to do it right.
I started using my background and what I knew about computers and web design and applied it to my blog. I pulled out my virtual toolbox and started to show the world (or whoever happened to stop by) that I had some sort of skills in certain areas, and suddenly I noticed an interest from others in what I was doing. They wanted to know what I knew! It was then that I realized that the focus of my blog had been all wrong. I needed to be sharing my knowledge with others and offering helpful posts that benefited them in some way.
Since then, my blog has undergone both major and minor changes, content adjustments, and traffic increases that I could have never imagined when I was starting out.
Want some proof? Here are actual screenshots of my blog stats beginning in 2011, then 2014, and finally 2016:
What I learned is all contained within this course.

What is the secret to building a blog that attracts attention?
I’m Dana; founder and creator of Wonder Forest and I Can Build a Blog. Since 2011, I have been blogging and creating content that helps others boost their online presence. Just like every other blogger, I started from scratch and had to climb my way up the virtual food chain. In doing that, I was able to master a plan and develop techniques that made my blog grow tremendously. Now, I’ve packaged up that knowledge in hopes of helping you skyrocket your blog to success in much less time!
Get Noticed is my course for bloggers both new and old. In this course, I share specific strategies for growing your blog audience and getting noticed by sites that you never thought would notice you!
I will teach you a few things (that you probably didn’t know!) about getting more traffic to your blog and being seen by thousands of new people. Want to increase your pageviews? Or be seen on the first page of Google? How about gaining followers that turn into fans? Sounds pretty nice, doesn’t it?! With the advice I provide, I want to inspire you to realize that anybody can be a successful blogger. Yes, even you!
Real advice from real experience
In the five years that I’ve been blogging, I’ve managed to turn my little hobby into a full time job. I’ve been featured multiple times on sites like the Huffington Post, in magazines such as Glamour, and featured by industry idols like Bob Vila. I’ve worked with companies like L’Oreal, Prada, Staples, Glade, Topshop, Maybelline, and many more, and have been presented with opportunities that I couldn’t have dreamed of. I am confident that you can do the same if you focus on getting noticed.
Once you know what you have to do and you create the avenues to do so, coming out on top is a natural process! I’ve combined years worth of advice, worksheets, and tasks into this course so that you can fast track from creating content to being seen because of that content!
What is “Get Noticed”?
Get Noticed is a course designed entirely around the idea of getting noticed and growing your blog audience online. Other courses show you how to set up a blog and get started, but none of them tell you how to be seen by larger amounts of people or how to get A-listers and the press to notice you. That’s where Get Noticed is different. It contains over 10 individual modules and 29 lessons with downloadable worksheets and tasks to complete so you can start putting the strategies into action right away.
“I’ve always wanted to blog, but figuring out how to find my voice and place was such a struggle. The content and structure chapters were perfect for me. Being able to write it down and work it out I actually found a direction quite easily and so far it’s a real natural fit. It worked really well for me to take my time and work through the worksheets provided, this step definitely couldn’t be rushed for me. I have a whole fancy binder with my calendar and ideas in it so I can easily plan it out and keep myself on top of everything. I’ve been able to watch my blog evolve already with what I’ve learned so far and it just keeps inspiring me to keep at it.”
More specifically, you’ll learn about:
You will learn about the best types of content to produce and HOW to produce it so that you can start getting more eyes on your blog.
We will set up some tools together to allow for visitors to easily help spread your content around the internet.
Having a blog means planning and structuring your time to do so. We’ll go through some planning methods and content structuring for optimal results.

It’s not enough anymore to just wait for opportunities to arrive
With blogging on the rise, it’s now more important than ever to make sure you stand out! It’s time for you to get proactive with your plan and make people notice you. Whether you’re blogging as a hobby or hoping to create a career from your site, there are certain things you absolutely must do! In Get Noticed, I share these essential tasks with you and guide you on your way. I know these “tricks of the trade” work because they are exactly how I managed to grow my blog from zero to just under a million pageviews per month.
What this course is not
This course is not a QUICK FIX for gaining an increase of views. The methods and tasks in this course take time and persistence to implement. It is truly for the blogger who WANTS to work at growing their following. This course will not show you how to set up or design a brand new blog, it is assumed that you already have a blog and are looking to increase your views.
What you can expect
Get Noticed is a self-paced online course. You can take as much time as you need to digest the content and your course enrollment does not expire. You can access your course at any time through any browser by logging into your unique account. The modules track your progress of lessons so you can jump right back in where you stopped.
Who is this course for?
This course is for bloggers who are ready to take their blogs to the next level. It is for those who have wondered why their content isn’t being seen by more people. Whether you’ve been blogging for a short while or a long time with minimal results, Get Noticed will help you find your footing and show you techniques that work.
“Before the halfway mark of this course, I had already taken major steps to improve my blogging thanks to the tips and instructions Dana provided. Everything from how often to post links to how to make your Pinterest profile official has been covered, and I’ve already had so many of my questions answered. I can’t wait to see what’s coming in the second half!”
Unlike other ecourses, you’ll have access to the course contents for life, from any computer, whenever you want!
“I am half way through the course and so far I am loving it. It is so informative and there is a lot of information I have not thought of before, and I did quite a lot of research before enrolling in the course.”
I want you to succeed and gain a lot of knowledge from this course, and I am positive that you will! Because of that, I offer a full refund within 15 days of enrollment and proof of work task attempts should you happen to be unsatisfied with the lessons. Since you will only get out what you put into this course, I’m rooting for you to succeed!
