ShoutMeLoud July 2017 Blog Income & Traffic Report: $50k Milestone

I’m from New Delhi, India, and here we talk in Lakhs and Crores. Thanks to globalization and the growth of the blogging and startup industries, “million” is no longer a word that is exciting for me.

Why am I talking about this word?

Because ShoutMeLoud receives more than 1.5 million page views a month, and one of my goals for this year is to reach 2 million page views a month.

5 Best WordPress Plugins For Creating Online Courses

Best WordPress Plugins For Creating Online Courses

Teaching what you know online can be the best thing you can do for your audience. More and more bloggers, entrepreneurs, and freelancers are adding online courses in addition to their blogs.

It’s a great way to help others while establishing yourself as an expert in your field.

One of the first things you’re going to need when launching a course is a piece of software for creating your content.

Courses are not the same as blog posts. For one, a course needs to be accessed by registered students and not just anyone who lands on your site. It doesn’t matter if you’re offering a free or paid course, you need to have some kind of student profile to track your students’ progress. read more
