What is The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit (or GBTK)? What’s included in the bundle? And most importantly: Is it worth the price and should you buy it?

When I first heard about the Ultimate Bundles and their products (like The Genius Blogger’s ToolkitI couldn’t quite understand how these toolkits with all those amazing resources can be sold at something like 97% off.

How can you get tens of resources worth a few thousand dollars with just a fraction of the price?

Are the products any good?

And why is everyone raving about these toolkits?

I’m a bit of a learning junkie, so after understanding the concept, it didn’t take long for me to become a super fan of these bundles. 

And because I’ve spent hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on different kind of blogging courses and resources to learn what I need to build my blog and business, to get 84 AH-MAZING resources with the fraction of the price makes me buy The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit every single year!

But this toolkit is not the right fit for everyone! So here’s my review on the GBTK 2020 toolkit so that you can find out if you should get it!

What are these toolkits and “Ultimate Bundles”?

First I want to share a little more and answer a few questions about the company behind these toolkits. They’re called the Ultimate Bundles.

(If you’re already familiar with these toolkits and want to just read my review, click here and it’ll scroll down to that part of this post.) 

WHAT? 

The Ultimate Bundles and Toolkits are a collection of amazing resources (ebooks, workbooks, e-courses, planners etc.) that the company Ultimate Bundles puts together. Each product has been contributed to the bundle by a different blogger, coach and/or digital entrepreneur.

WHEN? 

The toolkits are usually sold for a limited time ( a week or so) and during that time you can get ALL the resources about that topic with a huge discount.

Some of the bundles turn into “evergreen” offer but you’ll get even better deal when you buy these when these bundles are lauched or when there’s a “flash sale”.

TO WHOM? 

To anyone who wants to improve themselves, learn something new or wants or needs a little help with something they want to accomplish. 

There’s been bundles about Healthy Meal Planning, Mastering Your Money, Home Making, you name it… and the toolkit about the blogging resources is one of the most amazing ones! 

NOTE: This deal is a no brainer, but it’s not for everyone. If you’re NOT a blogger or an solopreneur/business owner and/or you don’t need to level up your social media game or make videos or write content then you might not need this.

BUT if you ARE a blogger, or you would like to become one (or you’re thinking about it) or you are a solopreneur/business owner and you use social media or write content then you’re going to fall in love with these resources… like I did!

Psst! I buy this toolkit every year! Because every year it comes with different resources!

HOW MUCH? 

Not much. Not much at all. 

The prices depend on the bundle but for example The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit is on sale for a week day between September 21th and 28th for 97 dollars and it has 86 products (+ bonuses!) in it and it’s worth over $7400!

It’s a steal!

WHAT! WAIT A MINUTE! THAT’S WAY TOO MANY RESOURCES! 

Don’t worry! It’s not going to be overwhelming at all. 

You shouldn’t expect yourself to go through all of the resources. You don’t have to study every single course, read every book and print out all the printables and planners.

The best part is that you get to sample products from different writers, coaches and bloggers and see which ones you like.

HOW CAN THESE BE SOLD SO CHEAP? 

You must have heard people calling something a win-win situation. Meaning that something happens and everyone wins. Well, these toolkits are one of those “situations”.

You win because you get all those amazing resources for the fraction of the price!

The company – Ultimate Bundles – wins, because they can collect these bundles and sell them.

The contributors to the bundles (meaning the writers, course creators etc.) win because they get to showcase their work for thousands of people that otherwise wouldn’t maybe find them. And instead of selling their course or book to their audience they can sell these bundles and then their audience get the product they want to get plus tens more with approximately the same price. 

So actually this is a win-win-WIN situation! 

So I think we’ve established by now that I’m a huge fan of these bundles. And I buy a lot of different bundles during the year.

And next I’ll walk you through The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit 2020.

Value: $7484.88

Price: $97 (flash sale!)

So if you’re looking to conquer your to-do list, reach your goals, and find more time for the things that matter you the most, then this bundle has all the resourses that can help get there!

  • 53 eCourses

And all the resources fall under one of these 14 categories. It’s a lot of categories so I’ll highlight my favorites and if you click the link it’ll scroll down to that part of this post. 

The categories covered in the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit:

You can find helpful products that can guide you whether you are a beginner or more advanced and whether you are just starting out or if you want to learn how to start and grow an email list, monetize your blog, make eye-popping graphics, handle technical and legal challenges, and so much more. 

And as I wrote before – and I can’t emphasize it enough – you don’t have to study everything or go through all the resources.

Even though you’d use only a few of the products, most likely the value of them will be much more than what you paid for this toolkit!).

So next I’d like to highlight my favorite products from this bundle and a few questions that can help you decide whether you want to buy this bundle. 

What’s in the 2020 toolkit?

There are 86 products in this toolkit so I’m going to highlight a few products in some of the categories and share with you some of my absolute favorites!

For brand new bloggers (or if you’re thinking about starting a blog)

When I started blogging all I remember is that there was SO much to learn (and still is!) and I spent A LOT of money on these kinds of courses.

There are more products in this category than the ones I’m listing here but these are the ones I think are pretty awesome!

How to make money (Affiliate Marketing & Selling Products)

It would be nice to blog and not to care about making money, but the reality is that blogging is not free (nor cheap!).

You need to make money at some point so that you can pay for those blogging tools and monthly fees and yourself as well! Your time is valuable!

And making money blogging doesn’t have to sleazy! Not at all! You’re helping your reader, your putting together resources and writing articles, you give out checklists… and you do the research so that your reader doesn’t have to. 

Psst! These two resources (VIP Affiliate Superstarts & Jennifer Maker’s Course Crush Quick Start) were actually the ones that justified buying The Genius Bloggers Toolkit this year.

These Pinterest resources make it worth buying

Pinterest was one of the most important things I needed to learn when I first started.

It took me FOREVER to get people visiting my site and Pinterest made such a huge difference in that.

Knowing how to optimize your content so that you can rank in Google is super important, but to rank in Google takes a long time. And in the mean while Pinterest can give you those quick wins you need to stay motivated. And who doesn’t like a quick win!

How I justify the price

If you use even a fraction of resources in the bundle it’s going to be worth the money you spend!

The first time I bought The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit I didn’t need all the courses because I was only starting out.

But I saved  all the courses, ebooks, planners and resources and I’ve been using them later (even now when my blog is in that stage that I need more information!)

So for example for me buying this toolkit is no brainer. 

I know I’m going to need and study these courses at least:

  • VIP Affiliate Superstars Toolkit $85.00
  • Course Crush Quick Start $97.00
  • Instagram 101 for Creative Businesses $97.00

Plus I already started to study these (and love them!): 

  • Batching Masterclass: Creating Systems in Your Business $37.00
  • Content Creation Blueprint: Fast and Easy Strategies to Write More, Sell More, and Work Less  $37.00

So these 5 resources (our the 86!) are worth $353.00 and the bundle costs $97.00! 

And I know I’m going to be using a lot of the other resources and study the courses… when time is ripe.

So should you buy this bundle?

Whenever I buy something for myself that I want and even need I like to think of those purchases like they would be a gift. Gift to myself. A me-gift.

So like with any gifting, I want to be absolutely sure that I’m giving something that the recipient really wants. And because in this case the gift is a me-gift the recipient is me. So I need to gift myself something I really REALLY want.

And for me – these bundles are something I really REALLY want.

But is this bundle something that you really REALLY want? Is it something you would benefit from? Is it something you need? 

I could help you make the decision by giving you questions to answer like:

  • Are you going to benefit from some of these products?
  • Is there an area you need to improve and would this bundle hold resources that can help you with that?
  • Are there resources in this bundle that could help you achieve your goals?

But by now you already know if you want to buy it.

Buy the bundle if you really REALLY want it AND if you’re excited to start studying one of the courses, reading one of the ebooks or using one of the printables or templates. 

And if you know that one of these resources will take your blogging game to the next level!
