If you’re interested in blogging, or you’ve been blogging but don’t know how to make money, then I’m going to break my own rule and tell you about a group of courses that have been really useful for me. I would not tell you about these if I hadn’t purchased them myself and found them very helpful, and if I didn’t think the value far exceeded the price. The group of courses is called the 2017 Genius Blogger’s Toolkit. I bought the 2016 version, and it has provided me with skills and direction to move my blog ahead despite a very challenging year. Best thing? The entire bundle of 91 resources, valued at nearly $6,000, is available for just $97!
Included are courses and guides on almost every imaginable topic, including getting started, organization, content creation, increasing traffic, social media, email marketing, podcasting, and monetization. And it comes with a “user manual,” a collection of videos to help you navigate the resources and figure out how to maximize the time you devote to learning.
I’ll tell you a secret: I have a pet peeve about a portion the financial blogging industry. Many of the folks who are really, truly making an absolute ton of money blogging about finances are actually making most of that money selling courses about blogging, or selling other services (like hosting) that support blogging. And, in my mind, the whole thing is a little disingenuous: they publish these fantastic monthly reports about the tens of thousands of dollars they are making blogging, which then makes you think that anyone can make tens of thousands of dollars blogging. And let’s be realistic: that’s not going to happen for everyone. And it’s definitely not going to happen if you aren’t willing to sell a lot of expensive products to your readers.
On the other hand, a blog can be a great way for many folks to earn a few hundred dollars each month, without leaving their house. There are up-front costs, but they aren’t huge, and it does take time to build your blog, and patience to start earning money. This blog was at the “couple of hundred dollars a month” level at about 2 years of monetization, and I honestly haven’t put a ton of effort into it.
I’m not going to promise you millions, or that your spouse can quit their day job, or that all your financial problems will be solved. However, I will promise you that this bundle will help you move from wherever you are in blogging to a higher place, and you will probably earn more money along the way. And it comes with a 30 day guarantee to get your money back if you’re not completely satisfied.
