Hi everyone! Geoff Shaw, the creator of the Kindling course, continues growing his membership. I honestly don’t see it as something that will ever truly end, so I’ll end the review now based on what I have gone through (all of it to date) and whenever I see something else, I can let y’all know about it here.
I wasn’t sure I’d like…
…A membership at all. I usually don’t. I want a product, steps and be done with it. But I LOVE this one. More than Chris Farrell’s, more than BTF – none of them even begin to compare one iota to Geoff’s way of doing things.
…Video lessons. GOD I hate video. The other Kindle course I bought would have 20-40+ minutes of video (with coffee slurps) and no thanks. I wound up loving that Geoff did short burst videos. Usually 2-3 minutes and some maybe 5 minutes. Nothing freaky. Nothing I couldn’t handle. And SO well done.
No slurps, no throat clearing. He has a great voice, a fun attitude (little honey badger I like in him). All stuff I looked forward to. And rightly paced. Pacing is important to me. If they rush, I get annoyed. If they drag stuff out, I get annoyed. Geoff hit the sweet spot every time.
Things I absolutely loved…
I loved that he covers something for everyone. Fiction, Non Fiction, writers, non writers. You name it, this course covers it.
I love that Geoff listens. Not just to ME because of the review or anything – tons of you have said he listens, he replies and he acts whenever you contact him, too. THAT is a great marketer – because one of the biggest complaints is how gurus ignore you.
I love that he isn’t lying about scarcity or what he’s going to do. He started out charging much less for the membership. It HAD less. He warned the price would go up as he added more. It DID go up as he added more, rightly so. I HATE trickery in sales copy about how you MUST buy TODAY or the price could go up at midnight. What a crock!
I love that he kicks your ass. Really, there’s no other way to say it. You have excuses? Geoff won’t take them, sorry. He’s going to tell you to get over it and get it done. And most people need that.
I love that he updates it all the time. Today I logged in and there’s a non US income page, explaining earnings around the world. Good information. When people start freaking out about number of reviews (I see this already – people are saying, “Well you have a list.” I’m getting reviews now from people I don’t know at all), Geoff does a video answering that concern.
I love that when he says to use something, like Facebook, he says “Facebook isn’t hard – product sellers might make you think it’s hard, but it isn’t.” That is so true! If someone’s selling a product on FB, they’re going to hype up the difficulty to make you feel overwhelmed and feel like you NEED their guidance, right?
Geoff simplifies everything in Kindling.
I love that he is one of the rare IM beasts who doesn’t shove products down our throats. I think I heard mention of 2 total – not anything to specifically further the business, just stuff the uses that he likes. I bought one, ignored the other.
Was there anything I didn’t like?
There were 1-2 small “eh” moments of stuff that was preferential in nature. Like co-authoring my pen names together. Just a preference of not wanting to do that strategy.
Best freaking Internet marketing product I ever bought in my life. Good for all marketers. If you’re looking into info product creation, then you need to include Kindle, not just minisites. And Geoff’s membership actually has good insight even for people who have no plans to do Kindle, seriously. But why you’d do that I have no clue.
I am amazed at this product. I’m amazed at the man behind the product. I’m thrilled that everyone is glowing about it as much as I am. I’m annoyed with myself for not getting it sooner whenever you guys first told me it was great.
But I’m there now. I’m happy. I’m in awe. I will tell people if they buy just one product, make it this one. I’ll sleep very well at night knowing people are in good hands.
Kindling is supreme.
What happens now with my Kindle story?
Now I implement what he’s taught me more, and continue seeking out methods I like from others. Geoff’s not an encyclopedia of all things Kindle. There are other ways of doing things. I’ll check those out. I’ll make up my own! I’ll keep track of what I like to do and share it with y’all along the way. I LOVE that there’s so much for me to learn. Makes my day exciting.
