Making a full-time income from blogging is the dream of many people, and for good reason, it offers the potential to make a lot of money while doing something you love.
But is it really possible to make a six-figure income as a blogger? And can a course help get you there?
Case in point: The Six-Figure Blogger course from Create and Go.
In this Six-Figure Blogger review, I’m going to cover everything you can expect from this course, and ultimately, you’ll hopefully know whether this course is for you or not.
Here’s a quick snapshot of what I think of the Six-Figure Blogger course.
- Clear framework on achieving six figures.
- Product ideations and creating services that sell.
- How to create a digital product from scratch.
- Structure for high-converting sales pages and email funnels
- Easy to follow and multiple options.
- A one-time fee gives you lifetime access.
- You need to already be generating some traffic for this to work.
- No information on how to generate traffic.
- No information on using affiliates to get sales.
- Only covers scaling by selling digital products and services (+ a bit on affiliate marketing).
- The support group is flooded with beginner questions.
What is Six-Figure Blogger?
Six-Figure Blogger is a course created by Lauren McManus and Alex Nerney from Create and Go. It’s designed for bloggers and website owners to scale their blogging business to six figures by creating and selling digital products and services.
The course is designed to teach you:
- How to create digital products (like eBooks and courses).
- How to sell these courses through high-converting sales pages and email funnels.
- And the framework required to reach six figures with your blog.
You’ll find the course hosted on the Teachable platform and the majority of the lessons are available in video presentation format. I.e. a slideshow with Alex or Lauren talking through the bullet points and occasionally adding examples to bring home the point.
In total, there are about 9 hours of learning material as well as written lessons in this course, so it shouldn’t take you too long to go through the content and start implementing the teachings.
P.s. This course has nothing to do with the book “Six Figure Blogging Blueprint” by Raza Imam.
Who’s behind Create and Go?
Now that you know what Six-Figure Blogger is about, it’s time to look at the course creators and see if they’re credible.
The Create and Go team is made up of Lauren McManus and Alex Nerney. The (former) couple have added Noah Riggs (an SEO) to their team as well, but he is mostly present in one of their other courses, the SEO Blueprint For Bloggers (my review is coming soon).
Before generating over $100,000 per month with their online business, Alex was a personal trainer and Lauren was an accountant.
They have a very relatable story, which is one of the reasons why they’re so popular.
They wanted to be freed from their monthly paycheck and carve out a living where they could plan their days as they please and do more of the things that made them happy, and less of the things that did not.
As I said, very relatable, probably to 99% of people, but something almost all course creators say.
So what makes them different?
Well, before they started teaching people how to blog successfully and scale to six figures, they actually did it themselves, by building a successful blog (avocadu.com, making over $20,000 per month). They then used those findings to craft the contents of their course.
A lot of courses these days are thrown together by someone that hasn’t gotten their hands dirty or doesn’t have any “skin in the game”.
I.e. most courses are all theory, but this one is built on actual practical advice and is constantly updated with the help of the successful students and the Create and Go crew’s ongoing experience.
So, now that I’ve gotten all of that out of the way, is the Six-Figure Blogger course any good?
Pros of Six-Figure Blogger
Six-Figure Blogger provides a clear and concise roadmap to creating a successful blog that has the potential of generating six figures in income. The mindset and framework provided are excellent pieces of the course and vital to steering your blog in the right direction.
The practical value in the course comes from the different modules that teach you how to create and sell digital products (eBooks and courses), as well as how to convert your website visitors into paying customers.
Creating successful sales pages is no easy task, but again here there’s practical step-by-step guidance on what should go where and why. Afterward, you’ll be thinking “of course!”, but you would probably not have gotten there yourself.
The six-figure blogger course helps you take control of your email list by crafting high-converting sales funnels (again, here there are practical steps to follow and even templates that you can make your own).
One of the course’s main pros is that it is easy to follow, and provides you with a variety of different options so you can find what works best for you.
Like all of the Create and Go courses, Six-Figure Blogger has a one-time fee that gives you lifetime access to the course materials, updates, and support group.
Cons of Six-Figure Blogger
The biggest downside of this course is that you need to have an established blog already in order to actually put it to immediately use. It’s not recommended for new bloggers or anyone with less than about 10,000 monthly visitors at least, and/or 1,000 email subscribers.
The course doesn’t focus at all on getting visitors to your website, be that through SEO or social media. This isn’t a course that covers a whole bunch of topics, which is good, as you get expert teachings on a specific subject.
What I found missing from the Six-Figure Blogger course was a section on paid advertising. While the Create and Go team doesn’t seem to use ads, if they could have partnered with someone that does use them successfully, it would’ve provided a lot of value and would bypass the need to already have an established source of traffic.
Another aspect that left me disappointed was the lack of course material covering how to use affiliates effectively to generate more sales. As they use affiliates to also market their products, this would be something right up their wheelhouse.
Lastly, the support group for all the courses is merged, so the Facebook group tends to be flooded with beginner questions. Meaning that the more advanced (and useful) stuff tends to get buried.
Who is this course for?
The Six-Figure Blogger course is for experienced bloggers who are already making some form of revenue from their blogs.
I would recommend having at least 10,000 website visitors per month and an email list of at least 1,000 before taking this course (or starting to put the teachings into action if you purchase beforehand).
Another prerequisite is that you should already have established your niche and have a clear audience to sell to.
This course is made for bloggers that want to scale their business with products and courses.
If you already have courses/products but they’re not converting very well, then the Six-Figure Blogger course is also a great option. There is a lot of valuable guidance on how to create high-converting sales pages and funnels that work for basically all niches.
Who is this course not for?
This course focuses on selling digital products and services (without feeling scammy), but not everyone wants to sell things.
So, if you’re a website owner that wants to scale your revenue with display ads and/or affiliate marketing, there are better courses that are designed for that specific purpose (Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing, for example).
This course is also not for people looking for ways to drive more traffic to their website, here you will be better off looking into a specific course on a traffic-generating method, like SEO (Create and Go have another course focused on SEO).
And lastly, this course is also not going to bring you millions overnight, you need to put in the work and as mentioned above, it will help massively if you have an established website already.
So, it’s not for the lazy people either (but what course is?).
How much does the Six-Figure Blogger course cost?
The Six-Figure Blogger course costs $297. This is a one-time fee that gives you lifetime access to the course content, as well as the private Facebook support group, and all future updates to the course.
There is also a 30-day money-back guarantee/refund.
The price of the Six-Figure Blogger course is one of its main benefits considering that similar courses generally sell for upwards of $1,000 and you’re not really getting much extra… if anything at all.
What’s included in the course?
The course content is mostly in the form of video presentations and is broken up into about 8 modules of learning material.
- Blogging mindset
- The Six-Figure Blogging Framework
- Affiliate marketing strategy
- Creating digital products and services (idea forming and planning)
- Creating your product from scratch (eBook and course)
- How to sell with high-converting sales pages
- Getting visitors to your sales pages
- Email marketing mastery (I.e. building trust funnels)
Bonuses include a flash sale email template, blog financial spreadsheet templates, and access to the private Facebook support group.
Is the Six-Figure Blogger course worth it?
If you are already making money with your blog and you’re looking for a course to help you scale through digital products or services, then this course is definitely well worth the price.
At just $297, it’s quite affordable in comparison to many other courses that claim similar results. As the Six-Figure Blogger course is aimed at bloggers who are already making approx. $1,000 per month, the investment shouldn’t be that hard to swallow either.
On the other hand, if you’re not yet earning or generating a decent amount of traffic with your blog (10,000 visitors+ per month), then it will be more worthwhile to invest in a course that will help you take those first steps.

Final thoughts on the Six-Figure Blogger course
If you’re looking for a course to take you from a couple of thousand to six figures with your blog through selling digital products, it’s certainly well worth its price.
You will learn how to create successful digital products and services. Completely from scratch, all the way to product launch, and even beyond the sales.
A big part of this process is planning things out correctly as you don’t want to waste time (and money/resources) on projects and products that won’t make money.
The Six-Figure Blogger course is a great resource to help you do just that and reach six figures with your online business.
