Step up, reach a wider audience and help more people.
If you’re a service-based business owner who wants to get your message out there so that you can help more people, then this course is for you.
Deep inside you know that your work could make a massive difference to the lives of a lot more people.
It’s time to tell the world about the magic of what you do…
Because your work can be a balm to the pain that others are going through.
Because you can help your clients to move past what’s holding them back.
Because you’re no longer willing to hide. You’re ready to be seen as the expert you are.
The thing is, right now…
You feel like you’re suffering from writer’s block when it comes to creating a blog post.
You don’t know how to figure out what your audience actually wants to read.
You don’t know the “rules” when it comes to writing a blog post (and you feel overwhelmed by the eleventy billion strategies you think you have to use)
If this all sounds familiar, don’t panic, this is a shame-free zone and I am here to help.
My mission is to help service-based business owners consistently share their message so that they get more eyes on their websites and services, get in front of more (lovely!) clients, and make the sustainable income they deserve.
Why blogging could be the answer…
Let me quickly explain to you why blogging can be the golden ticket to increasing your existing client base.
It feels a bit “icky” to market what I do.
Marketing can make the difference between a successful practice and those that fail miserably.
I need to get more clients
While, of course, you need to be highly skilled at what you do, I don’t think that’s the issue when it comes to attracting more clients.
It’s hard to explain what you do
Blogging can help to explain the benefits of working with you to the clients you are yearning to serve.
Unfortunately, it’s not enough to have invested your time, money, and energy into training to help others. You also have to be able to market your services if you want to get more clients and earn the sustainable income you deserve.
Wouldn’t it be great not to feel anxious about relying on word-of-mouth referrals?
How would it feel if you knew you were being more proactive about securing a client base so that you can continue to do the work that you love?
There’s probably a couple of different roadblocks getting in your way…
You feel like it’s all been said before, so you get stuck when it comes to coming up with an idea of what to write about.
You’ve been meaning to start blogging for a while now, but you’ve been putting it off without a nudge to get cracking.
You’re not exactly sure how to figure out the techy bits of uploading a blog and it’s been holding you back.
But it’s not all doom and gloom because when you blog…
- The content you share can keep working for you months later (instead of disappearing down the feed like on Instagram or Facebook)
- If you get into the habit of blogging and use the strategies that I teach, you’re likely to get more visitors to your website who are already interested in what you do
- When you start getting your name out there, surprising opportunities can come out of the blue

The difference it has made with people visiting our website is significant.
The course exceeded my expectations
I have just completed a six-week online blogging course with Marie O’Sullivan. I wanted to do the course because I am interested in starting to blog but had no clue how to go about it and found the whole prospect intimidating. Marie is very knowledgeable and welcoming, she keeps the group size small and takes the time to ensure everyone is comfortable before beginning. Some of the areas the course covers are formatting and structure of a blog, how to generate ideas, how to include links to other articles or blogs and how and where to get free images. It includes search engine optimisation and information on how to create your own infographics. After each session, she sent us an email with links to all the websites and even included ‘how to’ videos. All in all, the course exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in learning to blog.
A must-attend course
Thank you so much, Marie for your endless patience, support & expertise during the recent blogging course. You have transformed a complete beginner in the world of social media & blogging, by giving me the tools & more importantly the confidence to create content. I particularly enjoyed our practical group sessions, sharing friendly & constructive comments & tips with you and the group in a safe place – there were many ‘light bulb moments for me! This is a must-attend course for anyone like me to feels like a ‘Junior Infant’ on their first day of school when they think about social media & blogging. This is much more than just a blogging course! I look forward to participating in another of your courses very soon!
Marie is beyond generous in sharing her knowledge, skills, tips and own experience.
I would highly recommend Marie’s Blogging course. Marie is beyond generous in sharing her knowledge, skills, tips and own experience of blogging. She provides the information in small manageable chunks. Her group is a very warm, friendly, and welcoming space where everyone supports each other, providing feedback, suggestions and encouragement. Everyone learns from each other, regardless of your specialty. Marie, is a great nurturer and supporter, helping you to get the most from her course and to start writing your blogs. The course is more than value for money. Get on this course while it’s available.
When it comes to technology and its workings, Marie is a mine of information.
I have recently done a 6-week Blogging Course with Marie and loved it. Why?
Marie encourages you to get writing and get your word out to the world. Her style is very gentle as she gets you to hit those keys and have a go at writing. She will coax you along and encourage you to do your best. She is also very good at giving you the necessary nudge to inspire you to take your abilities further. Since I started the course, I have written, added photos, and uploaded my first blog onto my website. In fact, my second blog is almost ready now too. Considering that I have only done 4 weeks of her course as yet, that is a wonderful feeling of achievement.
When it comes to technology and its workings, Marie is a mine of information. For someone who struggled with technology, I have learnt so much more than just writing a blog. No matter what question you may have, she will go through the answer with you in a step by step format, so that you will learn and grow in confidence as you go. She has oodles of tips and helpful hints on presenting your work in a professional way and she can guide you on when and where to post your writings if you need help with that.
Because the number in her study group is limited, Marie treats each participant with a generous amount of 1:1 time for help with their specific business requirements. She also reaches out and keeps in touch between sessions to support you if help is required.
Having completed 4 out of the 6-week course, I am excited to see what these final two weeks will do for my ability to write a blog, and master the workings of technology. I would highly recommend this course to anyone with a website, who would like to create and add blog posts to it. Marie has all the answers to help you master it.
Marie always goes beyond the course content and gives so much value.
I signed up for a blogging course given by Marie to help enhance my business. What we got was so much more than just blogging. Marie gave us tips to write good copy and suggested great tools to create images and how to bring it all together in a good presentation. She also ensured that we were using words and links to promote our published blogs on SEO. As the group was quite small, we were able to read each other’s blogs, giving and receiving feedback which helped in writing our own.
Marie always goes beyond the course content and gives so much value. I would highly recommend any course that she gives as her knowledge is so extensive.
An absolute copywriting whizz
Marie is an absolute copywriting whizz! I sent a rough outline of what I wanted to be written, a link to a poll I’d run on LinkedIn, and the CTA I was after. Marie sent me a beautifully written draft blog back a few hours later, the same length as I normally write, in the same tone of writing sound as me… the process was effortless… Brilliant…!”
I cannot recommend her services highly enough.
“Reaching out to a website in my niche with an idea for a blog was entirely down to Marie’s encouragement! I was delighted to get a positive response from them and set about crafting my blog…which was way too long. Under Marie’s gentle probing we concluded that I actually had two articles. We went through the draft together line by line and Marie helped enormously by steering me towards my ideal clients …Marie’s editorial skills are amazing and best of all she makes it playful. The end result was that my edited version was accepted and is now live on the blog! Marie was so supportive right through to the finished article. I cannot recommend her services highly enough”.
I can’t guarantee that I’m going to keep running live rounds with personalised ideas and feedback tailored to your business at this price point. It’s an absolute steal right now and my current students will tell you that I make a point of over-delivering.
It’s 197 euros for six weeks of live training in a small group so that I can tailor the content to suit the participants. That fee covers personalised attention, Q&A sessions, recordings, videos that I send out to show you how to do a specific techy “thing” that will help you with your blogging, handbooks, swipe files, and templates that you won’t get anywhere else.
When does it start?
Pre-recorded training is available on the membership site – access anytime. You can get started straight away if you like.
There are live Q&A calls on Thursdays at 7:30 pm. We’re a friendly, supportive bunch, so don’t be shy!
Don’t worry if you can’t make it live as we’ll have a pop-up Facebook group where you can post any questions and you can also email your questions in advance. You’ll have LIFETIME ACCESS to the course.
Can I get feedback/ask a question?
YES! I want to help you to get up and running, or to improve your existing blog and get more consistent. You’ll have direct access to me and I’d love to help you figure out what you’re stuck on.
