Product Reviews

These product reviews are my opinions on various blogging products that I have paid for with my own money and tried. These are not sponsored products. 

All of the following posts contain affiliate links, and so does this page. If you click a link and make a purchase, I may receive a commission at no extra cost to you. Full disclosure is here.

PROFESSIONAL BLOGGING 

The most important product reviews that I have are for people who want to learn how to blog “professionally” i.e full-time.

I have tried a lot of “how to make money online” courses and products and you will not find them on this page because I do not think they are worth the money I paid for them.

Odd Noodle (formerly Billionaire Blog Club) – This is a suite of blogging education products. The website has evolved a lot since the BBC days. Now you have vast resources for whatever stage your blog is at.

Great Products

The following product reviews are for helpful items that can help any new blogger to succeed. I recommend Pinterest for free, organic traffic. And I recommend learning how to write quality content to get traffic from Google (and a good SEO course).

  1. PINTEREST NINJA course – You not only learn how to use Pinterest, you also get branding help and how to use Facebook groups! Highly recommended.
  2. Create Content Quickly – This course helps me create 2000 words in a couple of hours.
  3. Social Warfare – A social share plugin for WordPress that will save you a ton of time when scheduling to social media.
  4. Manual Pinning Simplified – If you want to pin without schedulers, then this is the course for you! Get up and running TODAY.

Keyword Tools

There are tons of free keyword tools and tons of very expensive paid keyword tools. I have tried many. Right in the middle is this product:

  1. JAAXY – This is a high quality keyword tool that will not only help you rank higher, but you can find trends with Jaaxy, spy on the competition, check out obscure niches, check your blog post rank on Google, Bing and Yahoo. And you get 30 FREE searches to check it out! win-win.

Blogging Product Bundles

What are bundles? The bundles are full of ebooks, ecourses, membership deals, and other useful resources for bloggers. You get far more products than you might expect for the money that you pay.

Ultimate Bundles 

UB has bundles for: bloggers, photographers, travel, productivity, herbs & essential oils, master your money, work from home,  and healthy meal planning. New bundles come out every year. 

My favorite product from UB is the Genius Bloggers Toolkit which is tons of helpful products for all types of bloggers. Get ebooks/ecourses on Pinterest, podcasting, organizing, record keeping & taxes, affiliate marketing, email marketing, content creation, monetization and much more.

The GBTK is only available for a few days in October during launch and in spring of the following year for a flash sale. Sign up for my newsletter to be updated on bundles.

“The Stack” aka BC Stack

(BC = Blogging Concentrated) has one bundle per year, and also has an affiliate program and you can sign up for it here.

BC Stack offers their bundle in summer each year. This bundle is quite different from GBTK in that there are a lot of live events, like a 4 week course on how to do Facebook Live that was featured in the 2019 bundle.

  1. AWOL Academy review post – The first of the truly over-priced programs that I reviewed.
  2. Six Figure Mentors review– And I thought AWOL was expensive…

Avoiding Scams
