My name is Matthew Kepnes and I’ve been running this website since 2008. In that time, I’ve helped millions of people travel cheaper and built a successful online business without any prior business or website knowledge.

I know what I teach you works because I do myself. My website earns mid-six figures per year, gets over 800,000 visitors per month, and helped me land a book deal with Penguin publishing. Moreover, my blogging advice and expertise works so well it has been featured in the following publications:

Here are what three of my students have to say:

If it wouldn’t have been for Matt, I would have started travel blogging in the completely wrong direction. From day one, Matt pointed me in the right direction. He not only equipped me with the tools to run a successful travel blog now, but also with the knowledge I will need in the future. Matt’s advice and guidance was invaluable and his program is a must for anyone serious about getting into blogging.”

Matt’s strength lies in his attention to detail and helping you to create a focus for your blog. It’s something he cares about, and he’s good at getting you to care about it too.

With so many blogs out there, it can be hard to know where to start or break through the clutter. Successful bloggers and business have clear goals and plans how to reach them. Most bloggers fail because they don’t know what they want or where they want to go. They stumble, they fall, they give up.

I really believe that anyone can do this. I really believe we all have our own unique story to tell and I believe others want to hear. I want to help teach you what I know so people hear your story.
