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 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 will cover everything you can expect from this course, and ultimately, you’ll hopefully know whether this course is for you.
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.
The course is hosted on the Teachable platform, and most lessons are 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 and written lessons in this course, so it shouldn’t take 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 comprised 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).
(Update: Noah has replaced Alex as part owner of Create and Go, but looking at his track record with the SEO Blueprint course and his digital marketing background, it’s a great addition.)
Before generating over $100,000 monthly 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 pleased and do more things that made them happy and fewer things that did not.
As I said, it’s very relatable, probably to 99% of people, but it’s something almost all course creators say.
So what makes them different?
Before they started teaching people how to blog successfully and scale to six figures, they 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.
Many courses these days are thrown together by someone who hasn’t gotten their hands dirty or has no “skin in the game.”
I.e., most courses are all theory, but this one is built on 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 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 to generate 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 of the course comes from the different modules that teach you how to create and sell digital products (eBooks and courses) and convert your website visitors into paying customers.
Creating successful sales pages is no easy task, but here there’s practical step-by-step guidance on what should go where and why. Afterward, you’ll think, “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 are practical steps to follow and even templates 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 Create and Go courses, Six-Figure Blogger has a one-time fee that gives you lifetime access to the course materials, updates, and support groups.
Cons of Six-Figure Blogger
The biggest downside of this course is that you need to have an established blog already in order to put it to immediate 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 on getting visitors to your website through SEO or social media. This isn’t a course that covers many topics, which is good, as you get expert teachings on a specific subject.
I found a section on paid advertising missing from the Six-Figure Blogger course. While the Create and Go team doesn’t seem to use ads, if they could have partnered with someone who uses them successfully, it would’ve provided a lot of value and bypassed the need for an established traffic source already.
Another aspect that disappointed me was the lack of course material covering using affiliates effectively to generate more sales. They also use affiliates to market their products, which would be up their wheelhouse.
Lastly, the support group for all the courses is merged, so the Facebook group tends to be flooded with beginner questions. The more advanced (and useful) stuff tends to get buried.
Who’s This Course For?
The Six-Figure Blogger course is for experienced bloggers who are already making some form of revenue from their blogs.
I 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 for bloggers wanting to scale their business with products and courses.
If you already have courses/products that are not converting well, then the Six-Figure Blogger course is also a great option. There is a lot of valuable guidance on creating high-converting sales pages and funnels that work for basically all niches.
Who’s Shouldn’t Get This Course?
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 who 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 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 has 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 one-time fee gives you lifetime access to the course content, 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 getting much extra… if anything.
The course content is mostly in video presentations and is broken up into about eight 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 private Facebook support group access.
Is The Six-Figure Blogger Course Worth It?
If you are already making money with your blog and looking for a course to help you scale through digital products or services, then this course is well worth the price.
At just $297, it’s quite affordable compared to other courses claiming similar results. 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), investing in a course that will help you take those first steps will be more worthwhile.
