GENIUS BLOGGERS TOOLKIT REVIEW
I will never recommend you getting something I have never tried before, that is for sure. I have purchased The Genius Blogger's Toolkit for the past 3 years and I can honestly say that it has been worth it every single time!
Even though I haven't had the chance to fully dive in this year's resources (because y'all, life has been busier than busier), I trust that Ultimate Bundles always come up with amazing resources and work all year round to bring together only the best to us.
The first time I bought The Genius Blogger's Toolkit I didn't really know what to expect or how to work it through to make the best out of it. It took me some reading, Facebook group discussions and lots of to-do lists to figure out what I really needed. The platform has come a long way since then and now everything is really well organized and they even include a blogging essentials manual and the option of buying some extra cheat sheets to better navigate every single product included in the bundle! While I don't think is really necessary to get this cheat sheet upgrade, I do believe that it is a great way to get organized and don't miss a minute going through something that might not be useful on your specific situation.
Having said that, some of the eBooks and eCourses I'm most excited about from this year's Genius Blogger's Toolkit are:
- The Blogging Blueprint: Strategies for growing a successful blog and making money blogging by Tiffany Griffin ($149.00)
- How To Work With Brands (& Make Money) by Jessica Festa ($249.00)
- Email Growth & Marketing Bootcamp by Jennifer Roskamp ($247.00)
- Irresistible Email: The Art of Attracting, Captivating, and Nurturing Your Tribe of Raving Fans by Ruth Soukup ($297.00)
- Affiliate Marketing For Bloggers: Everything You're Missing by Carly Campbell ($79.00)
- Pinning for Profit: Profit from your Passion by Jennifer Dawn ($497.00)
- Pinterest Hashtag Database and Printable Guide to Hashtags by Kimi Kinsey ($45.00)
- Streamline Your Social: How to Make the Most of Your Time on Social Media by Tonia Kendrick ($97.00)
- Crush CSS: Code School for Bloggers by Marianne Manthey ($187.00)
- Exclusive ProBlogger Event Keynotes: The Best of 2011-2017 ($299.00)
These topics are based on what I'm most interested in developing for my blog right now but the idea of the whole bundle is to grow your blog, get more traffic, monetize it and even create and sell your own product (if that's what you envision for your blog, of course!).
SO... SHOULD I BUY IT?
Yes and No. Of course it would be easier for me to just tell you that you NEED this bundle and just have to buy it but I got to be honest with you. As with any other course, book or workshop, the Genius Blogger's Toolkit will only be worth it if you want it to. What do I mean with this? Well, if you put in the work, the results will come. As simple as that!
This bundle is jam-packed with hours and hours of knowledge that can help you achieve your blogging goals BUT it's not magic! Just like when you pay for your yearly gym membership in January, go religiously for the first couple of months, forget about it for the rest of the year and still expect results (I may or may not have been there before)!
If you decide to get yourself this amazing bundle, by no means feel obligated to do it all. Take your time to go through the whole list of resources in every topic and choose the ones you are most interested in. Then, grab your planner and set an action plan to visualize how you are going to work through the eCourses, eBooks and worksheets, and make sure it is realistic. Also, make sure to join the Facebook groups from the eCourses you are enrolled in. Sometimes you will find them even more valuable than the eCourse itself and get to discuss with like-minded people who might be struggling with the same blogging issues as you do.
All in all, if there is at least 3 resources in this bundle you are interested in, then I say go for it!
FYI... The value of all the bonuses is more than 5x the cost of the bundle you just need to make sure to redeem those first before they expire!
The 2018 Genius Blogger's Toolkit is only available from October 10th to October 15th, so don't wait any longer and start working on your goals right away while learning and growing all aspects of your blogging business.
