Blog Consulting

Blog Consulting

Are you discouraged because your blog just isn’t where you want it to be?

Do you struggle to attract and maintain traffic?

Are you ready to monetize, but just don’t know how?

Let’s face it:  Blogging is hard.  Every now and then we just need a little extra help, encouragement, and advice from someone who has already been there.

That’s where I come in.

Over the last four years, through trial and error, reading everything I could get my hands on, and talking to a whole lot of people smarter than me, I have continued to learn everything I can about the business of blogging.  In the process I’ve built Living Well Spending Less into a site that is currently helping me earn a full-time income, has over 3 million monthly pageviews, and continues to grow every day.

My bestselling eBook, How to Blog for Profit: Without Selling Your Soul gives you an inside look into how I turned LWSL into an actual business.

I want to share a little bit of that success with you too. Working with me one-on-one will not only give you that boost of confidence you need, you’ll also come away from each session with a workable action plan that you can implement right away!

For more information or to schedule your session, please email us at or call us directly with questions at (888) 343-2362, extension 2.

Interested in getting started?

My team and I would be happy to customize a consulting package for you based on your blog’s individual needs. Some of the areas I have worked on with clients in the past include :

  • Writing great content
  • Blog design/layout/readability
  • Goals, blog planning, and organization
  • Building blog traffic
  • Monetization
  • Working with brands and sponsorship
  • General social media strategy
  • Pinterest, including a customized Pinterest Marketing Plan
  • Facebook
  • Business development

In order to ensure results, I currently require a minimum commitment of five hours of consulting time, split into 1 hour sessions.  Before I create your customized plan, we will ask you to fill out a detailed intake survey so I can best know how to meet your specific needs.

What others are saying:

Working with Ruth is the most powerful tool I have yet encountered in building my blog. In implementing her advice, my traffic quadrupled almost immediately and I learned valuable insights for building a brand. Not only is Ruth full of hard-won wisdom and experience, she is a soulful encourager. I am richly blessed to have connected with Ruth and encourage you to do the same.” ~Tammy Straight, Grace Uncommon

By implementing the Pinterest strategies that Ruth suggested, I have increased my site traffic by over 500,000 unique visitors per month. For real. Ruth is brilliant! What more can I say?! “~Crystal Paine, Money Saving Mom

After reading Ruth’s book, I knew I wanted to learn more about her social media strategy. She was very direct in the book, but I still had more specific questions. I have to admit, I was not sure she’d give away those trade secrets, but I was willing to try so I scheduled a consultation! Ruth was so transparent and clarified and expanded upon everything I was curious about. When I use her techniques, I notice a remarkable difference in my traffic and social media reach! ” ~Heather Shaw, Family Friendly Frugality

    I contacted you through your email admin but have not heard back.
    Interested in your pricing for blog consulting.
    Thank you

    Hello Ruth. I have been researching, studying, and learning everything I possibly can about the blogging business for about 2 months now. I read your book and LOVED it! (it was by far the best of all 10 that I read) Aywho, I’m a bit of a perfectionist so I want to make sure everything is in place and I have all my ducks in a row BEFORE I launch, which I’m planning to do in March. That being said, do you only offer consulting to those who are currently running a blog, or could you possibly work with someone like me?

    • Ruth Soukup February 27,

      Hi Maiesha, I would be happy to do a consulting session. It sounds like a Q&A session might be best for your specific situation. Just email us at and we can get it set up!

    Just got your book. My whole world opened up! I am looking for someone to redesign mine. Been blogging for 3+ years. Do you do anything like that? or direct me to someone reasonable so I can focus on my content I have to try to get things to link up. I am a techy newbie. Thanks

  • Jess Curren April 29,

    Sent you an email!! Hooray! I’m excited!
