My FULL Review of the Genius Bloggers Toolkit

I think this is the best bundle I have ever seen. I don’t think I’ve seen any other bundle that has packed so many high-value courses into it!

I’ve been going through the bundle for a few weeks now, taking lots of the courses so that I could review them for you but man oh man have I learned some things!

Now I have to admit, I’ve seen some blogging bundles out there (not by Ultimate Bundles) that just had a lot of fluff in them. You pay a lot of money and get barely any value from them.

That’s not the case with GBTK.

I bought my first GBTK back in spring of 2018, and I use the courses in it all the time for my blogging journey. Because they curate courses to fit every aspect of your blog. Same with the GBTK that came out last fall, that I got to be a contributor for! This time around is no different.

I love that each time they come out with a new bundle it’s all new courses. And there are always amazing bonuses!

Make sure to scroll down to see MY BONUS that you can grab if you get this bundle through my links!

Want to see which courses YOU should take in the Genius Blogger's Toolkit based on where you are in your blogging journey?

⭐ Creating and Selling Products

GBTK Full Product Review #2 Sept. 15th 2020

➡️ Create Your Digital Product Launch Plan by Kayleigh Hannon (worth $297) ðŸ‘ˆðŸ¼ yeah you read that price right!

I have gone through the whole course and wow! It is pretty awesome, in fact I’m going to use it for my next launch! And I have taken other launch courses… I love this one!

I have been teaching you guys about business plans, planning a product, funnels, etc in my Facebook Group and THIS COURSE….will help you launch whatever you create!

I even learned some tips that I can apply elsewhere in my business!

Ok here’s the breakdown:

➡️ Comes with a workbook download that helps you brainstorm your launch. You’ll fill it out as you watch the lessons. It’s also digitally editable so you don’t even have to print it!

➡️ Has 4 video lessons that break down the beginning to the end of your launch in bite size pieces and covers everything from pre launch to cart close!

➡️ There are 3 bonuses but I’m most excited that it comes with….A TRELLO TEMPLATE! You all know that makes my heart happy! Other bonuses are an Asana template and a video showing how to set up your schedule in Asana which can also be applied to Trello.

There aren’t many bullet points because I cannot give the course away, but if you trust me- this course is legit.

She takes you from learning how to build hype about your product all the way to making it irresistible to buy!

I’m super impressed.

And uhm The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit as you know is usually around $97 and so you’re getting triple the value with just this one course…but guys…there’s so many more. SO many good ones!

GBTK Full Product Review #3 Sept. 16th 2020

➡️ The Hot List by Krista Dickson (value $397)

This is a full blown email marketing course. And there is literally so much inside that if I reviewed the whole thing you’d be reading for a while so I’m going to try and highlight what I think is amazing about the course.

This course is the literal definition of going above and beyond on a topic.

➡️ Ok first thing you get when you open the course are FIFTY opt-in templates. Available for Canva and Photoshop. 50. And they are beautiful, and customizable and make it super easy to create opt-ins for your blog!

➡️ There are 7 super in depth modules, and almost every lesson comes with a printable plan, roadmap, swipe file, template, prompts, tracker….just so many things to help you be successful.

➡️ She teaches you how to create a tripwire product. 🤯 AND gives you a sales page template.

➡️ She starts the course by helping you identify your avatar in a unique way which is applicable to your entire business (and of course comes with a workbook)

➡️ Here are some super quick highlights

  • There’s a brand voice workbook
  • a Welcome Series Template AND swipe file
  • How to write newsletters, types of newsletters, newsletter ideas, newsletter prompts printable
  • Crafting subject lines + printable
  • How to plan content quickly + content planner printable
  • Launch strategy module
  • Launch email guide and swipe file
  • Sales funnels +swipe file + funnel tracker

➡️ AND THEN there’s a tech vault full of tutorials like building a landing page in leadpages AND convertkit, creating a fillable PDF and many more.

➡️ She also shows you how to make sure people are opting into your list, including a small social media strategy, fixing up your site and promoting on Pinterest.

➡️ OH and one more thing, I logged in this morning and saw that it comes with TWO courses. The second one is called Pageviews from Pinterest and it’s a 7 module course. (I haven’t reveiwed it because I literally just noticed it this morning but WOW!)

I would literally buy GBTK just for this course. But honestly guys, there is so much value in this year’s GBTK that I’m kind of upset with myself that I didn’t put a product in this year haha!

GBTK Full Product Review #5 Sept. 18th 2020

➡️ Sponsored Posts Contract Template by Amira Irfan (worth $100)

When I saw this in the bundle I immediately highlighted it and told myself that I needed to download it. But then I thought, why not share this one?

It may be looked over in the scope of all the goodies in the bundle but this is one of those essential needs that will come up in your business so I’m sharing it today.

Ok so for those who are unfamiliar, a sponsored post is when you get paid to talk about a product or brand on your blog.

So basically a full blog post about something a company is paying you for.

This is an income stream that if you don’t already have on your blog, you’ll most likely want to in the future. And that’s why I say keep this one in your back pocket! Some bloggers make $10k a month with sponsored content like Michelle from Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.

Let’s overview the template:

  • Quick PDF download that is super easy to fill in & highlights the parts that you need to change to your specific needs/business
  • Comes with 3 bonuses including a disclaimer for sponsored posts
  • Gives contact info for questions PLUS has a Facebook community

When you make that decision to add sponsored content, you’re going to need a contract to send brands. And Amira has you covered.

⭐ MINDSET

Mindset

I haven’t gotten to dig into any of the mindset courses yet but I cannot wait to see what’s inside The Intentional Influencer: Make an Impact as a Christian in Business and/or Ministry by Rachael Gilbert (worth $97)

GBTK Full Product Review #6 Sept. 19th 2020

➡️ Plan Your Money Making Webinar to Make Sales Over & Over Again by Kerry Beck (worth $97.00)

I’ve gotten a few questions about webinars and now I finally can say I’ve been through a good course and would recommend one!

This webinar course covers everything you need to know to create a webinar and make consistent sales in the background of your business.

In my GBTK REVIEW #2 I reviewed a Digital Product Launch course and this one pairs PERFECT with it!

Let’s get to my review:

She seems really hands on and willing to help if you need it but her course pretty much covers everything you need.

The course includes 9 modules

  • Every module has a video lesson, a text lesson and a workbook lesson.
  • Learn how to price your product for your webinar
  • How to link your product to your webinar
  • Fast Action Strategies and Follow Ups
  • How to fine tune your webinar by gathering data
  • Crafting your email funnel for after your webinar
  • Crafting your Webinar Title
  • Making a foolproof plan for your webinar content
  • How to create great visuals for your webinar
  • How to Promote your Webinar

She also covers tools to use! Everything is covered in this course.

This course is definitely worth $97 which happens to be the same price as GBTK. It seriously blows my mind how much value is in this bundle!

⭐ TRAFFIC & SEO

GBTK Full Product Review #4 Sept. 17th 2020

➡️ SEO Jumpstart: Search Engine Optimization for Bloggers by Eb Gargano (value $197)

This course is perfect for those beginning SEO.

I got two themes from this course:

1. She teaches you how to do SEO without paying for a tool (although she does recommend some her tutorials are done with no paid tools)

2. She seems to be a yoast expert and I’ve never seen such a deep dive on Yoast.

This course has a bunch of free tools inside:

  • Tracker spreadsheet
  • Keyword research spreadsheet
  • Free content calendar
  • Google Analytics Dashboard
  • Google Search Console Tracker

Breakdown of the course:

There are 11 Modules + 3 Bonus Modules

She teaches you what SEO is, has a printable SEO jargon buster to get you familiar with SEO terms & has you track where you are before you start the course.

She covers:

  • Site structure
  • Keyword research
  • How to write blog posts optimized for SEO
  • Site speed
  • Backlinks
  • Maintenance

Now because I am 100% honest with my audience I want to say, that although I think this course is amazing, and teaches you a whole lot about SEO and can help you rank, better understand SEO, and set you up on the right path…I do think it’s missing a few things.

I think this course is perfect for someone who hasn’t taken a deep dive into SEO and needs to know how to do it but at the same time I don’t think it’s the “end all be all” course for SEO.

Why? Because I think that in order to really rank against your competition you need to have access to the right tools to do so and she doesn’t quite teach you how to do that. But again, that doesn’t mean that you cannot rank with this course.

This is still a course I would recommend to put at the top of your list if you buy GBTK and haven’t started optimizing your posts for SEO because it is so important for your blog!

Please feel free to ask questions in the Facebook group about this course and the other reviews I’ve posted!
