What is the Genius Bloggers Toolkit?
The Toolkit is a collection of 86 expert blogging trainings that would cost over $7,500 individually, but are available together for a SUPER limited time at a 97% discount.
The Genius Bloggers Toolkit is extremely popular among bloggers. I know many bloggers who buy it every year. Me? I've gotten it three times so far. I did NOT buy it in my first year of blogging even though I was aware of it. (You'll see why. Keep reading.)
The 2020 edition of the Genius Bloggers Toolkit is available now until Monday, September 28, 2020 and goes away until 2021, when it comes back with an entirely different set of resources.
Around this time of the year, the Toolkit is pretty much all bloggers are talking and asking about. And the big question for most people is...
Should I buy it?
Here is a letter I wrote for my fellow bloggers considering the Toolkit to help them decide:
I'm going to give you my brutally honest answer about whether or not the Toolkit is worth it here. Please consider reading this before you buy it.
Generally speaking, I think those who can benefit from the Toolkit are:
1. VERY new bloggers or want-to-be bloggers — especially those who have not yet found (or can't afford) a foundational blogging course. If you are thinking of blogging or are a new blogger, I think this the Toolkit is super helpful for getting started.
2. Bloggers ready to monetize — if you're at the point where you're ready to monetize your blog, there's a lot of good resources in the Toolkit to help with this
3. Established bloggers — those who have a blog that is already bringing some income and has good systems in place, and are ready to deep-dive into specific topics.
So who do I think should avoid getting the Toolkit? The bloggers in the "messy middle" who can be distracted and waylaid by the Toolkit. That's probably a lot of bloggers. I define the messy middle as those who already have their blogs up, mailing list platforms in place, and really just need to keep making content and attracting people to turn them from visitors to subscribers. Remember, content is king and you need to be prioritizing that content early on in your blogging journey.
In 2017, I was #2 and I bought it. In 2018 and 2019, I was at #3. But in 2016, I was in my messy middle and did NOT buy it.
So if you're not in the "messy middle," what's the benefit of the Toolkit?
Because so many of you ask for my opinion on the Toolkit each year, I got a copy of the Genius Bloggers Toolkit to evaluate the offerings for you.
This year's is even better than last year's. And it's still WAY overwhelming. The key is to focus on a few resources that exceed what you paid for it, really use and implement those items you identified as valuable, and KEEP WORKING ON YOUR BLOG. (Sorry, am I beating a dead horse here?)
So after looking through the list of resources, here's a list of the people I think could benefit from the Toolkit:
So if you focused just on those resources right there, you'd have a $500 value for $97. Is that worth it? Yes, definitely. You could safely ignore everything else and keep focusing on your blog.
I found a lot of other valuable things in the Toolkit, but whether or not they are helpful depends on where you are in your blogging journey. It may be more beneficial to simply buy the ONE thing you need directly from whomever is selling it rather than getting the entire bundle. So you'd need several things that you know for sure you'll use to make it worth it. Here are more things I like (and personally vouch for — I know each and every one of these course creators personally) and who I think could use them:
I'm barely scratching the surface here. There's a ton of value here, but ... it's overwhelming. What some people do is get the Toolkit, take immediate advantage of enough resources to make it worth their money, and hold the rest in reserve for when they have a specific project. For example, when you're ready to try your hand at a webinar, you can come back to the Toolkit and do the Plan Your Money Making Webinar to Make Sales Over & Over Again.
You have access to the e-books and courses in the Toolkit for one year, and once you download them or register, you keep access forever.

If you think you could benefit from the Toolkit, buy it here.
Note: If you know exactly what you want to use from the Toolkit, get just the Toolkit itself for $97. If you're feeling even a little overwhelmed by the list, get the toolkit + cheat sheets for $147.
Now, because I have been SO impressed with the Toolkit over the years, I contributed my own resource this year. In fact, I am putting my brand new course that's normally valued at $97 into the Toolkit, and — for now — it's the only way to get it. It's called COURSE CRUSH Quick-Start and it's my method of creating courses based on what your audience needs! My goal is to teach you critical concepts and actionable steps to find what your people want to learn from you, how to come up with a course idea that is actually in demand, and then go on to outline the entire course. After that, it's just a matter of putting your plan into action!
AND I HAVE BONUSES!
I'm so excited about Genius Blogger's Toolkit (GBTK) that I'm going to sweeten the pot if you get it. If you purchase the Toolkit, not only will you get my COURSE CRUSH quick-start course but I'm going to throw in some special bonuses:
Bonus #1 - Access to my personal spreadsheet of comments/tips/notes about the resources in Genius Bloggers Tool Kit so you know what to focus on and avoid overwhelm. It will help you identify the best resources and make it more manageable. Someone gave me their notes like for another collection and it was SUPER helpful for honing in and staying focused.
Bonus #2 - A special invitation to my exclusive Profitable Products workshop! This live workshop gives you an overview of the types of products you can sell in a blog or small business, with pros and cons for each, simple methods for identifying product needs among your audience, and ways to test your product idea before you commit 100% (super important!). This is a $47 value alone.
Bonus #3 - Access to my Blog Boost Bank, a special collection of 10 motivational videos (not available for purchase separately). I know many of you expressed interest in this when I offered it earlier this year as a bonus for EBA enrollment, so here's your chance to get it!
Ok, this may be overly generous. I'm just really excited about this, and you know how much I enjoy giving things.
These bonuses are only available if you buy the Genius Bloggers Toolkit through this page! If you do decide to get GBTK, just forward me your purchase receipt/confirmation email by September 29 at 10:00 am to email@example.com and I'll send you my THREE bonuses. It's that simple.
