So, earlier this week, a surprise email about The Genius Bloggers Toolkit dropped into my inbox from the team at Ultimate Bundles.
If you haven’t come across them before, Ultimate Bundles are the guys who work with leading digital creators to create “Super Bundles” of Digital Products.
Typically, these huge digital bundles cover popular niche areas like food, fitness, homemaking, and photography. The kind of “Evergreen” niches that are popular all year.
2020 Edition of GBTK – You’ve now missed the January Flash Sale.
Genius Bloggers Toolkit 2020 Edition from Ultimate Bundles is next released in October 2020 for two weeks only. The January Flash Sale is over.
The Super Bundle for Bloggers
One of the niches covered is Blogging, or more specifically “Blogging as a Business“, and every October, the Ultimate Bundles team releases a product called The Genius Bloggers Toolkit.
In a nutshell, the Toolkit is a collection of courses, Ebooks, templates planners, and other resources created by experts in their associated fields to help bloggers run a profitable and sustainable blog. This year’s edition contains 94 premium products.
Oddly enough, despite being an affiliate for Ultimate Bundles, I’ve never actually purchased the Toolkit before. This in spite of the fact that I get sent about 100 emails from other bloggers promoting it before the release each October.
The window of opportunity to invest in the bundle is small. It’s only available for purchase during the two week period in October. I’m not kidding; you simply can’t get it outside of that time period.
January 2020 Re-Release For 2 days only…
Anyway, Ultimate Bundles wrote to let me know that they are re-releasing The Genius Bloggers Toolkit for two days only this January. The bundle will be available for purchase during a tiny window covering the 15th and 16th of January.
The contents of the bundle make it a very enticing proposition with some top authors contributing to the 94 product list, including favorites of mine such as Ruth Soukop, Anna Sokyrka, Crystal Paine and McKinzie Bean.
I’ve managed to get hold of the full Genius Bloggers Toolkit product list and decided to share the details. I’m not going to pass it up this time around. At $97, it really is a bargain.
What’s in the Genius Bloggers Toolkit?
The Bundle covers a diverse range of products and these are grouped into the following categories :
- Affiliate marketing
- Beyond blogging
- Building your blog
- Content creation and promotion
- Creating and selling products
- Email marketing
- Facebook and Twitter
- Finance and Legal
- Getting started
- Podcast and vlogging
- Productivity and organization
- SEO and traffic
- Tech and support.
Let’s break down what is in the Toolkit. Many of the products have been put together by the most successful bloggers in the business. Individually, the entire product list adds up to a tidy sum of over $7000, but the Toolkit is available for just $97.
I take figures like $7000 with a pinch of salt but if you check out the product list, it still represents great value.
The toolkit includes three E-Courses and two E-Books covering the science (or is it an art?) of Affiliate Marketing.
For the uninitiated, Affiliate Marketing is promoting products or services for other people or organizations in return for commission payments.
A commission is usually earned from a sale on the merchant’s website or by some other course of action, such as generating a lead.
Affiliate Marketing is one of the primary methods of making money from websites or blogs.
