[UPDATED Jan 21st, 2021]

The Annual Genius Bloggers Toolkit from Ultimate Bundles is back for a brief flash sale in January 2021 and it is the first time I am a contributor to this much-loved bundle of courses! I am beyond excited to talk about the bundle.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you know I’m going to be talking about it all month long. Without ado, let’s dive into my honest overview and review of the Genius Bloggers ToolKit .

I’ll also be adding some tips that will help you make the decision simpler.

If you know me at all, you’d know that I rarely or never promote something unless I am convinced about it. That is why I decided that if I have to promote the Genius Bloggers Toolkit then I’d have to actually buy the bundle myself.  And am I glad I did! ๐Ÿ™‚

And I did JUST that in both 2018 and 2019.

In 2020, however, as a contributor (still pinching myself) I was given a complimentary copy of the bundle ๐Ÿ™‚

What is the Genius Bloggers Toolkit?

The Genius Bloggers Toolkit is a bundle of items put together by Ultimate Bundles every year. It is a comprehensive bundle of courses, PDF downloads, Video downloads and Zip file downloads of blogging-related content.

So, in short, that’s 53 eCourses, 15 eBooks, 11 templates and 7 workbooks & printables.

All of these courses are available without the bundle from the respective sellers, but YOU get it once a year at a significant discount. Plus, you get some Bonus content from other sellers!

You also have SIX WHOLE MONTHS to access, download, read, learn, watch and implement all the items in the bundle. (This does not apply to the 15 bonus features listed at the end of the post).

All in all the 2020 edition contains 86 items and 15 bonus features!

How much does the Toolkit Cost?

The total and original value of the Toolkit is $7,400!

But you can get it for JUST $97

*(Optional) If you’d like the cheat sheets that go with the Bundle that costs extra $50

Should you buy the ToolKit this year?

First off, full disclosure: I bought the toolkit for the first time ever in 2018 and let me just say IT IS PHENOMENAL!

This year, I got it four weeks earlier than today because I am a contributor for this year’s bundle. And I also got it for free.

That said, you may still be thinking, ‘Hey it’s nearly $100 that I have to shell out and I don’t know if I have that kind of money right now!’

Yes, it’s $97 up front, but that actually only works out to $8 per month or $2 per week for the next year. ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s right. That’s how long the bundle is valid for download. And once you download the items you have access to them FOR LIFE!


If you’re still on the fence, here’s what I suggest.

  1. Take the day and chalk out how much you’ve invested so far in your blog this year.
  2. Go through the section below on what the toolkit contains and how much of it is relevant to you. Tabulate the cost of JUST those items.
  3. Work out the actual cost of the items vs the discounted cost.
  4. Remember you have a whole 6 months to work your way through the bundle and download what you need. That’s 180 days and with a bit of smart planning it’s totally doable!ย 

What I am MOST excited about in the Toolkit!

I know we’re not supposed to pick favourites among kids, but I think it’s permissible in the blogging space. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve included the full list of items below this section but I thought I’d highlight a few favourites!

Given where I am in my business and how I want to move it forward, these are the items I am most interested in:

These are products I have personally vetted and tested before sharing them with you all.

Since I got the toolkit a month earlier, Iโ€™ve had time to dig into the riches and scope out the best of the lot.

Of course, that doesnโ€™t mean they are the ONLY good ones. Just the ones that I thoroughly enjoyed ๐Ÿ™‚
