Master blogging to $10,000 per month is the slogan to Jon Dykstra’s course, Blackroom Blog Profits, a course offered through his academy fat stacks and at $47 per year it’s one of the cheaper courses on the market. Today we’re going to look deeper into the course, what you actually get and whether it’s worth it or not. Without further ado, here’s my blackroom blog profits review.
For those of you that don’t know of Jon Dykstra, he’s been around for a while and owns numerous websites including Fat Stacks blog where he documents his entire income report in detail. At the time of writing this review his November report indicated he made $37,000 revenue from seven niche websites. $30k of that came from one B2C website. Pretty impressive!
The other six websites don’t make anywhere near as much. In fact none made the $10k per month (in November) mentioned in the tag line of the course proving it’s highly unlikely you will get to that level any time soon either.
Another income report from 2015 shows a large magazine which indicates Jon probably buys and sells websites for a living. It’s good to see he actually included a module in his course on selling your website like him.
Blackroom Blog Profits Review
I’m always more generous to courses lacking content that only cost a tiny investment and if you’re sitting on the fence at $47 then you’re probably not cut out for blogging as it takes time, money and practice to generate big numbers.
Fortunately for Jon and probably you, the course is actually rammed full of content across seven modules which you get instant access to followed by two additional modules you receive after 35 days.
I just wish Jon would film his videos with a decent microphone, the quality is pretty poor.
It’s important to note here that as of the time of writing your $47 only gives you access for 12 months so make sure you don’t forget to cancel when the renewal rolls around as I’m not sure how often the course is updated..?
Once inside you’ll get the usual welcome videos and how to use your time correctly for building your niche sites. There’s a quick start guide accompanied by some tools that you’ll probably need.
Module one discuses niche selection and theres a good 45 minutes on this topic.
Module two includes two videos on outsourcing from Jon and Mike. There is examples of how to keep track of work and routines to stick too for processing.
Module three gives you an introduction to creating content with an emphasis on affiliate marketing content. You’re shown how to get started with writers, guest blog content and structuring and laying out your content.
In module four you’re shown how to monetize your website with ads including adsense, finding affiliate programs, joining affiliate programs, finding good offers, cpa offer selection and a brief overview of email marketing.
Module five is the largest section and includes a ton of videos on getting traffic. Without this you probably don’t have a business, right? There’s a large section on Pinterest and SEO with a focus on keyword research techniques. On site SEO, backlinks and general best practices are included. It’s not that detailed but at $47 it’s a good start.
Module six sees the introduction to selling your website and how to find big sales experts and general advice for selling your website. It’s probably not very clear that in order to sell your website for a huge profit like John Dykstra you need to have some serious revenue figures, $50 here and there won’t get you much.
However a few months of 4 or 5 figures could see you flip the website for 20-35X revenue!
You need to wait 35+ days before you can unlock the secret videos which is a bit of a tease but they include videos on how to join affiliate networks that are Jon’s favorite, how to create content ‘blazingly fast’, promoting recurring revenue income offers, content concepts and a video on advanced SEO.
Is Blackroom Blog Profits A Scam?
It’s not a scam and you get access to a full course for only $47 per year. There is two modules which are locked until after 35 days and to claim a refund you must do so within the first 30 days so you’re tied into not claiming a refund to reveal the last two modules which include some rather juicy videos.
It’s a good course for the money, it’s definitely longer and more detailed than some heavy courses out there that cost a small fortune. There’s no private mastermind group and I’m not sure how often the course is updated to justify extending your membership for longer than one year. Video quality is good, Jon converses well (his microphone sucks though) and my blackroom blog profits review scores good.
