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. 

If I think that a product is useful or helpful to bloggers, I write a review and post it here. I will only promote products that I have personally tried and can vouch for. Blogging can be a challenge in the first year or two, so finding one or two products to invest in can be a treasure hunt.

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.

If possible, and as a general rule, avoid Facebook group recommendations.

Many people in the groups are there to promote their stuff, and it may not be right for you and where your blog is at today. I went into a group looking for a good SEO course, and had one product recommended to me. I bought it because many people in the group recommended it, but it was too advanced for my blog.

People in these groups do not care where you are at with your blog…they want the commission. Sad but true. Facebook groups are a great place to discover resources, but do yourself and your blog a favor and sleep on it 😉

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.

DARE TO CONQUER review (formerly Billionaire Blog Club) – This is a comprehensive education system that is constantly evolving with more products. This is the one product that I highly recommend for anyone who wants a quality education on how to earn money online. I am currently a member so my review post contains affiliate links.

DTC contains everything that you need to create revenue streams in several ways, including course creation, sales funnels, and affiliate marketing. You do not get this with other membership programs.

 Also:

Available as a bundle,  DTC has 2 new products:

The Blog Simple Framework consists of: Blog Revenue Engines ($0 to $1K in 6 months with ads) or Authority Revenue Engines (quick wins with affiliate marketing) are for people who do not want to set up a blog and wait for SEO to create an income. Learn how to set up basic websites to create income quickly.

As with anything, I urge you to do your research before you hit the ‘buy’ button.

Blogging Help

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. Amazon Prime Day – That great big once a year sale!
  4. Social Warfare – A social share plugin for WordPress that will save you a ton of time when scheduling to social media.
  5. 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

No product review page would be complete without 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.

*NOTE:* If you are planning to create your own products to sell on your website, then Ultimate Bundles and The BC Stack are the places to promote your products.

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.

Avoiding Scams

My product reviews page would not be complete if I did not include my blog posts on avoiding scams. There are so many scams on the internet, and blogging is full of them as well.

As someone who was able to avoid being scammed out of money by several people, I feel qualified to help you see how scammers work. This information can be applied to many situations, as the scammer mindset is the same everywhere…to part you from your hard earned money. Please share these posts with others who may need this information. Thank you!
