Cons of the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit 2018
The biggest con of the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit 2018, is because of the sheer volume of materials you get, it can be overwhelming. It can be hard to know where to start.
Some of the products are definitely stronger than others. Some of the contributors appeal to my style of learning better, but I think that’s with anything.
As you dive into the products, you’ll figure out pretty quickly which ones resonate with you.
Products You Don’t Need
There will be products included you don’t need or want.
For me, I exclusively use Squarespace for all my websites. There are several products about WordPress in the bundle I’ll never use. Personally, it’s not a big deal because there are so many products I will use, but keep this in mind when deciding if the toolkit is right for you.
Fear of missing out. It’s a thing.
Right now it seems like EVERYONE is promoting and purchasing the bundle, and you don’t want to miss the boat. I get it. However, if this is not a good time in your blogging journey or money is tight, the bundle might not be right for you.
Pros of the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit 2018
I’m a sucker for a good deal. The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit 2018, is a good deal. Period.
Over the past 2 1/2 years, I have spent thousands of dollars taking online courses and buying e-books to help me learn all. the. things. When I can get over $5,000 worth of products for under $150, it’s worth it to me.
Info At Your Fingertips
Throughout the course of a year, I will deep dive into different areas of blogging. It saves so much time and money to have access to a product I need when I need it.
I just go back through the list of products in the bundle, and jump into the course or e-book I need on a particular subject.

What’s New In This Year’s Genius Blogger’s Toolkit 2018?
All the products in this year’s toolkit have never been offered by Ultimate Bundles. The information is current and relevant to the blogging world today.
Cheat Sheets. Oh my goodness, the cheat sheets for each course and workbook are AMAZING! These little gems will save you oodles and oodles of time as you go through the toolkit.
Should You Buy the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit 2018?
I’m going to give you a hard maybe. ;)
You know you won’t use the products
You have a tendency to consume information without implementing it
It’s not in your budget
You’re a new blogger and need information on a variety of topics
You’re a seasoned blogger and want to deep dive into areas for growth
After looking through the list of products, you know there are at least 3 products you would be willing or would want to pay full price for.
I purchased the 2016 and 2017 Genius Blogger’s Toolkit, and I was so glad I did.
Two and a half years ago, I launched a faith blog, not knowing anything about the online world. In the first year, I was able to grow it to 500,000+ unique visitors and build my email list to over 7,000. The Genius Blogger’s Toolkit played a huge role in my growth.
I can honestly say, even if I hadn’t been a contributor this year, I would have purchased the toolkit without hesitation.
