If you’ve been with me for a while, you know I LOVE strategizing easier + more effective ways of doing….just about everything.
This week we’re talking about the amazing 2017 edition of the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit because it’s a limited time offer of over $5,000 in blogging education (courses, books, bonuses) for only $97.
Today I want to talk about WHY I push the toolkit every year.
Believe it or not, I honestly don’t push it just for the commissions.
I can just as easily sell my own products for more income because I control those sales and keep a bigger percentage of the proceeds myself!
I RECOMMEND THE TOOLKIT BECAUSE –
I firmly believe that education and skills is what sets apart the big time bloggers from the rest.
If someone came to me and told me they wanted to make $100k or more from blogging each year I would tell them 2 things:
- Here’s a list of courses, webinars, and podcasts I need you to take and report back to me and
- You MUST learn how to sell your own products OR affiliate products
These days, ad income is so unpredictable and such a low return on effort and sponsored posts are not within your control…I don’t like not being able to control my own destiny and get paid fairly for my efforts! It’s just not a sustainable way to be.
I love ad income and sponsored posts for the variety they add to my bottom line but I will NOT RELY on them for my livelihood. The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit is an amazing blogging educational value at only $97. Here’s just a preview of what you’ll find inside!
HOW THE GENIUS BLOGGER’S TOOLKIT CAN MAKE YOU MONEY
The key to getting the most out of the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit rests in your ability to resist trying to take EVERY course and just focus on the gems that will help you make leaps and bounds in whatever your growth focus is.
This varies from person to person, but I firmly believe that as long as you are focused on gaining expertise in something that will directly result in increased income for you, you are on the right path and will have made a smart decision for your future.
As for me, my current goals are getting more efficient at creating courses and being on video. I want to start a YouTube channel that’s an extension on my brand.
This means that the Conquer YouTube course in this year’s bundle makes the ENTIRE BUNDLE worth the cost to me. It’s a $375 course that I get access to IN ADDITION TO everything else in the bundle for just $97!
There’s MY no brainer purchase trigger. What could yours be?
HOW TO CALCULATE THE POTENTIAL RETURN ON INVESTMENT
I can also justify the cost from the other direction. I like to ask myself, “How can this one course make me money?”
Well, just off the top of my head, here’s how –
- A successful YouTube channel can drive thousands of visitors to my blog each month, resulting in ad revenue and sales. EVEN IF I only sold 1 extra product per month at $25 profit, it would only take me 4 months of this to make back my investment in the toolkit. And then I’d continue to profit $300 minimum extra income each year ($25 profit x 12 months) just from the knowledge in this course. But that’s just if I lowball my expected results. In reality, once I figure out how to leverage YouTube for my marketing efforts, I’d likely sell DOZENS more products than I’m selling now each month. This means that the REAL return on this one course is more like $600 per month ($25 x 24 products) in long term revenue. See how this works?!
By doing simple calculations like these and DREAMING of what could be, you can figure out whether or not something is a good investment.
Can you just imagine the revenue potential from being able to implement the strategies from just one of the following investments?
- How to Master Tailwind by Kate Ahl ($67 value)
- Affiliate Acceleration by Kayla Aimee ($27 value)
- Demystifying SEO by Kim Six ($29 value)
- Free WordPress theme from Bluchic ($79 value)
- The Blogging Binder by Sarah Titus ($47 value)
- Blog and Be Legal by Jackie Jade ($297 value)
- Food Photography Tips & Tricks by Christina Peters ($19.95 value)
WHATEVER YOUR BLOGGING LEVEL, YOU CAN WIN AT THIS INVESTMENT GAME!
The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit is great for bloggers at all levels. I have taken several of the courses (and FYI – they are worth it at full price) and can say that these are the courses that will impact your bottom line if you take them seriously:
- Core Affiliate Strategy Guide by Rosemarie Groner ($64 value) – This guide single handedly increased my overall affiliate revenue in the past year by over $30,000. Yes, I said $30,000! Before I read it, I had NO CLUE how to run affiliate promotions to my mailing list. This guide got me over that learning block and now it feels like the sky’s the limit! Just look at this graph below….I’ll give you one guess as to when exactly I started seriously implementing Rosemarie’s email strategies for a couple of my products?! (Hint: I read her guide in July and seriously started implementing it in late December.)
- Flipping Blogs for Profit ($27 value) – This is a super interesting read. I was approached three times this year to sell my blog, so this came in extra handy.
- ConvertKit Masterclass by Monica Froese ($47 value) – I have not taken this one, but I have taking one of her other courses, and I know Monica personally – she is LEGIT. She really knows what she’s talking about so I can confidently say this is gonna be a good one. Here’s the thing – even if you don’t have ConvertKit, you can learn a great deal about email marketing strategy from someone as skilled as Monica.
- Launch It Right! Plan Out & Execute Your First Profitable Course by Summer Tannhauser ($29 value)
FINALLY, THESE COURSES & EBOOKS ARE ALL ABOUT MONETIZATION!
As if I needed to continue…I think I will! If for not other reason than to show you why I continue to gush on and on about this silly little toolkit.
Not only are the resources above great for anyone who wants to accelerate income, these resources in the toolkit are also all about increasing income!
- ECOURSE Become an Affiliate Blogger: Preparing You to Create a Full Time Income So You Can Work From Home! by Tia Mac ($47.00)
- ECOURSE Closing Strong: Create Campaign Reports that WOW Your Clients by Danielle Liss ($49.00)
- How To Make Money From Blogging: The Ultimate Guide To Earning A Five Figure Income From Your Blog by Sharon Gourlay ($24.99)

As you can see, the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit has such an amazing potential return on investment EVEN IF all you do is take a handful of courses designed to increase your revenue. And that’s before you read or watch a single other thing!
