The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit is a GIGANTIC package of the best blogging tools and resources, covering topics from starting a blog, to getting traffic, to promoting it with social media, to taking your blog full time!
It includes 28 eBooks, 43 videos and eCourses, 16 printables, 10 digital bonuses and more. There are books and courses for everyone from total beginners to professional bloggers.
Unbelievably, this package has a total value of $5,802.51, but for this week only it’s on sale for just $97.
(The sale closes on Monday 9th October at 11:59 pm EST – that’s 03:59 am Tuesday 10th UK time.)
The Toolkit is released once a year for about a week each time, but the contents change each year.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on an early bird copy of the bundle because I’m an affiliate. Now that it’s finally available to everyone, I wanted to give you a peek inside!
Scroll to the end of this post for a full list of the bundle’s contents. For now, I wanted to introduce three of my favourite products from the bundle:
My top picks from the 2017 Genius Blogger’s Toolkit
With so many resources included in the bundle, I obviously haven’t had time to test them all yet.
(And to be honest: I probably won’t ever look at some of them. But that’s the beauty of the offer! Even if you only use two or three of the resources, you’ve still saved money. And there is so much great material here that most people can benefit from almost all of it.)
But I did want to pick out just a few of my favourite products in this bundle, and tell you what I’m particularly excited about!
Pinteresting Strategies by Carly Campbell
Pinteresting Strategies: How I Went From 0-200k Page Views with Manual Pinning is an ebook from blogger Carly at Mommy on Purpose. The ebook sets out a complete strategy for getting insane blog traffic from Pinterest. Now, I’ve been a bit of a Pinterest obsessive recently, and I’d read several good reviews of this book by other bloggers, so I was itching to get my hands on this book! It was the very first product I downloaded after buying the bundle about a week ago.
I have not been disappointed! I thought I knew my way around Pinterest, but I’ve learned something new on almost every page. I’ve been implementing some of Carly’s strategy for a week and have already seen a small boost in traffic. And that’s without even redesigning any pins to her specifications!
The value of this ebook sold separately is $32.
Core Affiliate Strategy Guide by Rosemary Groner
Affiliate marketing is the main way many bloggers make money. Rosemarie Groner at The Busy Budgeter makes over $20,000 per month from affiliates! This guide and workbook takes you through her exact strategy. She claims to introduce a step-by-step strategy you can make to maximise your income even without huge traffic.
This book looks so easy to follow. Rather than just giving generic advice, Rosemarie sets specific tasks for you to work through each week and even provides a time estimate for each one. There are spaces in the workbook to record your actions and progress. I’ve only just skimmed through it so far, but I can already see that’s it’s cleared up a lot of questions I had.
This is another book I’ve had my eye on for a while, and I was so pleased to see it included in the bundle! The guide retails separately at $64.
Turn Your Dreams Into Money: How to Build a Six Figure Blog and Live the Life You Want by Emma Drew
Emma Drew is one of my favourite bloggers. Her site was one of the first resources I found when I started looking into ways to make money online last year. It’s all thanks to Emma that I actually got started on this journey. Emma Drew started blogging as a hobby, but quit her job to blog full time in 2015, and now makes six figures a year blogging. Earlier this year she launched this course, in which she sets out a complete roadmap for you to become a professional blogger too. I was interested in this course when it was first released but couldn’t justify the cost, so I was really excited to see it included in the bundle!
I had a look through the different course sections and am really impressed with the range of content. She covers everything from the basics of setting up a blog, to monetising, promoting on social media, creating your own products and more. The depth Emma goes into on each of these topics is incredible – way more detail than other courses I’ve seen that cost even more money.
The course is priced at $250 if you buy it outside of the bundle. So if you buy the bundle for this course alone, you’ve already saved $153!!
Is the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit worth the money?
$97 is great value for the amount of resources you get. But I mean, $97 still is a big chunk of money. I certainly wouldn’t want to throw away that amount.
But if you have a blog, or are seriously intending to start one, and you plan on spending any money at all on training resources in the next year… then YES. The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit is truly great value for money.
Looking at my favourite three products above, I was hoping to buy them all this year anyway. If I’d bought them at full price throughout the year, I’d have spent $346. So on those three products alone, I’ve saved $249!
I would say that the variety of products in this toolkit cover so many different aspects of blogging, that you won’t even need to buy any more training products this year. So if you only have a tiny budget to spend on your blog, buy this and save yourself money in the long run.
Of course, if you literally did not intend to buy any blogging products whatsoever, this toolkit would be a waste of money for you. Also, it’s important not to get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of products included – realistically you won’t look at half of them.
I recommend choosing 3-4 products that you think will truly benefit your blog, and see what the total price would be if you bought them separately. If the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit would save you money, go ahead and buy it!
By the way, there’s also a 30 day happiness guarantee. If you’re not completely satisfied you can claim a refund.
Is the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit worth it if I don’t have a blog yet?
If you are serious about your intention to set up a blog, then yes.
There are resources in the bundle for all levels, from beginners to professional bloggers.
You get a free premium WordPress theme and a hosting package discount in the bundle, so even if you haven’t started a blog yet, this bundle gives you everything you need to get set up.
The bundle even includes a set of premium stock photos and two exclusive fonts, so you can start your blog off on the right foot with a professional look right from the start.
Am I glad I bought the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit?
I bought the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit myself the minute I was able to.
In fact, I’ve been planning to buy the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit for an entire year! I first heard about it when it was on sale this time last year. At that time, I was considering starting a blog, but I hadn’t got anything started yet. The Toolkit seemed like an unnecessary expense since I hadn’t even got a blog yet.
Well, after I started my blog and realised how little I knew about blogging, I started to look at various blogging courses. I have been kicking myself all year that I missed out on so many courses in one package. I’ve actually been putting off buying courses and ebooks all year because I’ve been waiting for this package to come around again!
In the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit, I truly feel that I’ve got a great deal. I know that if I start putting into action some of the ebooks and courses included, I’ll definitely see an improvement in my blogging.
I probably won’t buy any more courses for a year because I’ve got so much to work on now!
