I’ve mentioned before that I think continuing education for solopreneurs is super-important. Actually, I think continuing education in any field is imperative – this is what comes from having a degree in education and spending time as a corporate trainer. This learning thing is in my blood.
As a result, I buy a lot of learning resources to help me in my business.
One of the best things I bought in 2016 was the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit. And now I wait (impatiently) for it to come out every year. I’m super-excited to share that the 2018 Genius Blogger’s Toolkit will be available October 10 through October 15.

If you’ve been thinking about taking a course or investing in some books about blogging or online business, then now is the time.
The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit is jam-packed with resources that cover all the most important parts of running an online business. Whether you need help with email marketing, monetization, social media, productivity, or something else, you are bound to find the answers in this bundle.
Here’s what you get in the 2018 Genius Blogger’s Toolkit:
- 41 eCourses & video trainings
- 15 eBooks
- 9 printables & workbooks
- 5 templates
- 5 stock photo packs
- 2 membership sites
- 7 bonuses
- getting started
- tech help
- design & branding
- list growth
- content creation
- product creation
- social media
- business setup
- community & support
If you bought all these resources separately, it would cost $5,867.88!
So what does all this awesomeness cost?
This bundle will help you:
- start a blog the right way, with lots of guidance
- create consistent & compelling content
- develop a list-building strategy
- get organized & more productive
- create your own products
- monetize through affiliate & brand partnerships
- increase your blog traffic
- find a social media strategy that works
At this point, you are probably asking yourself a) “why would they do this?” and b) “what’s the catch?” So, let’s look at both those questions.
Why would they offer all this stuff for such a low price?
For starters, this offer is put together by a company called Ultimate Bundles and this is what they do. They pull together a bunch of resources on a specific topic and offer them as bundles. In addition to the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit, they also offer bundles on homemaking, healthy living, de-cluttering, parenting, and more.
Why would people contribute their products to a bundle?
It’s a good way to get your name and business in front of a new audience. I know that, as a consumer, I’ve found several businesses this way and have gone on to buy other products from them at full price.
What’s the catch?
The catch is that the bundle is only available for a very limited period of time – in the case of the 2018 Genius Blogger’s Toolkit, we’re talking October 10-October 15. You truly do get all those resources at a very low price point, but this is not an evergreen opportunity.
The second thing to keep in mind is that the sheer quantity of resources in the Genius Blogger can be overwhelming. If you don’t have a plan to use the information, then you run the risk of wasting your money. If you are interested in buying the toolkit, I recommend that you pick five or six items that will make the biggest difference to your business and focus on those.
You have a year to download any books or sign up for any courses, so you have plenty of time to move on to additional resources, once you have worked through your top five items.
Is the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit worth it?
For my business, absolutely. But, I can’t answer that question for your business. Only you can.
Check out the full details of all the products included this year’s bundle. Then take a few minutes to jot down the books/courses/bonuses that jump out at you. You’ll be able to tell pretty quickly if the $97 price tag is worth it for you.
