Your Outcome

Get a deeper perspective on blogging with the story of how I started, lessons from over a decade of experience, and underlining principles so you can better serve your readers and learn what can elevate you above the noise.

Be more than just another influencer. learn to create online business that helps people, makes money, and lasts the test of time.

In a world awash with content and influencers, it can seem like you've missed the boat on starting a business online. How will you get heard above the noise? How will you make money? Will anyone read what you write?

These are common worries.

But let me tell you: you didn't miss any boat. There's always room for good content.

If you're thinking of starting an online business, want to take your current one to the next level, or just want to master online marketing skills for your job, you're in the right place.

My name is Matthew Kepnes (a.k.a. Nomadic Matt) and I’ve been running the website Nomadic Matt since 2008. Over the last twelve years, my website has become one of the top travel blogs in the world, with over 1.3 million visitors per month, a 310,000-person email list, four employees, and high six-figure revenue. I've written two books (one a New York Times bestseller) and even started a travel media conference.

When I started, I had no background in writing, technology, or marketing. I couldn't code and was lost in a sea of information. I just knew I liked to travel and wanted to find a way to share that passion with the world (while also getting paid).

I know exactly where you are because I've been there too.

I created this program to teach you everything I know about running a successful online business.

In twelve years, I've seen it all. I've seen people come and go and trends fade into oblivion. I know what it takes to build something that lasts and how to get heard above the noise. I will show you how to buck trends and stand out the same way I've helped the thousands of other students that have taken this course.

Success is more than just information. There's plenty of free information online. If you want free information, this program isn't for you.

This program is about having a teacher make sense of the information we teach. We help you put it all together, develop a strategy, fix your website, and answer your questions through our weekly calls.

I know how hard it can be to do this on your own and feel no one can understand you or offer you help. I had the same problems when I started. I tried tons of things that didn't work in part because I had no one with experience to go "That's not right. Try this instead."

When you sign up for this program, you get more than just another online course giving you a bunch of information to figure out on your own.

When you sign up for this program, you get my team and I giving you constant feedback and support. We will be here to answer questions, provide technical feedback, help you strategize.

Information is nothing if you don’t have a strategy to implement it. My teachers gave me insights and guidance I would never have found on my own.

That's what I want to do with you.

That's what Superstar Blogging is about.

It's about being your mentor - and your biggest cheerleader.

What Students Say

Even as an established travel blogger, this course was useful because it helped to change my mindset and taught me advanced tactics I didn’t know

Though I’ve been blogging for 5+ years, I still found Matt’s course extremely beneficial. It helped me to rethink my strategy and come up with a more long-term and sustainable business model. Even as an established travel blogger, this course was useful because it helped to change my mindset and taught me advanced tactics I didn’t know. The information he shares is required to run a successful blog and business in today’s climate.

Learn the fundamentals of building a functioning blog

Superstar Blogging was the perfect course to learn the fundamentals of building a functioning blog. Before taking this course, things like coding and SEO terrified me! Now, I have hundreds of readers a month, after launching my site only two months ago!

This course works because Matt has been through it firsthand and knows how the travel blogging business truly works

I've tried other create-your-online-business courses (one was even six times the price of Superstar Blogging) and they never worked. This course works because Matt has been through it firsthand and knows how the travel blogging business truly works. He doesn't fluff things up to market to you and is honest about how much work it takes. AND he's not lying when he says he'll actually respond to emails!
