My Take On Create and Go

This Is My Review

Before I start, let me say that I haven’t taken any of Create and Go’s blogging courses, so in that regard I’m on the outside looking in.

I have, however, been on their mailing list for several months now and do have some knowledge and understanding of what they offer.

Create and Go is a blogger training platform created by a couple named Alex and Lauren. If you check out their About Us page, titled “About Us – From Broke and Frustrated to $100,000/Month Blogging In Less Than 3 Years,” they tell the story of their lives before they met, then how they met (on the dating site Tinder). This background information personalizes them and created a connection with the reader.
Their story goes on to explain their frustrations with their working lives, and how they decided to try blogging. They are up front about their failures during their first attempts before launching their current blog, Avocadu.com. They tell their readers how it became successful and how they then used what they learned to develop their blogging training platform, Create and Go.

It’s obvious that they update their About Us page regularly, and it’s a rather long but interesting and enjoyable read. At the end of the page they set forth what they call their new mission:

Our mission right now is to help 1000 students make $100/m blogging, 100 students make $1000/m blogging and 10 students make $10,000/m blogging.

Create and Go has an affiliate program, but I’m not an affiliate and they require purchase of one of their courses before they approve an affiliate request. When I first found out about Create and Go, I was already a member of a different training platform that I’ll tell you about later, so I had no need to purchase one of their courses.

And, speaking of their courses, they offer 6 courses, plus a “road map” to guide you to which course to choose.

The above are their original courses. They have since added one more

The course road map is helpful in determining which course you should buy, depending on your experience in blogging. Beginners should start with the Build and Launch Your Blog course, those with some experience but not a lot should begin with Make Money Blogging for Beginners, and more experienced bloggers can buy a more advanced course or a bundle.

Create and Go courses teach:

  • The basics of affiliate marketing
  • How to create digital products
  • How to write and create an ebook
  • Methods of growing traffic on Pinterest
  • How to organize your finances

All their courses are based on their own experiences and what they have learned from their own blogging.

How Much Does Create and Go Cost?

That depends on the course, of course. (heh, heh)

The Build and Launch Your Blog course

This is their first course for beginners. They list the value of this course at $997, but their enrollment price is $97. They also include 2 bonuses with this course, a Free Downloads bonus, valued at $297 and a Pro Blogger Resources bonus valued at $197. The Free Downloads bonus includes a 1-month Blog Launch Checklist and The Perfect Introduction Email template.

They also offer Private Community Support, a $47 value.

The Make Money Blogging For Beginners course

This course goes into more detail and includes a lot more on email marketing. The price for this one is $197. Bonuses include:

  1. Affiliate Programs Marketplaces Round-up ($97 value)
  2. Basic Email Trust Funnel Templates ($297 value)
  3. Private Community Support group
  4. LIfetime access to course updates

The Pinterest Traffic Avalanche course

This course offers 8 modules with over 25 training videos. The price is $197. Bonuses include

  1. Worksheet and Checklists to Track Success ($47 value)
  2. Ninja Secrets Pinterest Bonus Lessons ($497 value)
  3. Updates as the Pinterest AlgorithmChanges
  4. Private Support Group Access ($47 value)

The Six-Figure Blogger course

There are 9 modules in this course, which costs $297. Bonuses include:

  1. Fast Cash Flash Sale Email Templates ($497)
  2. Blog Financials and Spreadsheets ($297)
  3. Private Community Support ($47)
  4. Lifetime Access and Updates

The Pro Blogger Bundle

The Pro Blogger Bundle is called The Ultimate Course Bundle at Create and Go. It includes all the modules and bonuses for the first four courses listed above.

And the last course,

The Blog Monetization Bundle

This package includes the Make Money Blogging for Beginners and the Six Figure Blogger courses, plus bonuses. They list the original price as $494, and enrollment cost as $397.

It is important to note that all the courses are sold for a one-time fee and you then have lifetime access.

The sales pages for the courses are professional and detailed, and include a You Tube video also. There are testimonials from students who talk about the success they have achieved from the courses.

So What Do I Think?

I thought from the beginning that Create and Go was a legitimate training package for people who want to earn an income, and I still do. Several of the emails I received contained great tips for improving my own blog, such as 17 Best Blogging Tips (Newbies to Advanced Bloggers) for 2019.
So Create and Go is a legitimate training platform and I can recommend it. It’s not my #1 recommendation, though.

My #1 recommendation belongs to Wealthy Affiliate. That’s the platform I was already using when I subscribed to the Create and Go emails.

I found Wealthy Affiliate when I was looking at a different way to earn money writing and the person who wrote the post I was reading recommended I check Wealthy Affiliate out. I learned that it was free to start, which is unusual, and that I didn’t even have to list a credit card in order to begin.

How Does Wealthy Affiliate Compare with Create and Go?

Wealthy Affiliate has been around since 2005 and has evolved a lot over the years. It was begun by Kyle and Carson, and they still own the site today. It currently has over 1.4 million members, and there isn’t a better platform for learning blogging and affiliate marketing to be found anywhere on the web, in my opinion.

Create and Go is a legitimate platform, and offers quality training and one-time pricing for each course or bundle, although I think the prices are a little high.

Wealthy Affiliate offers free training to start, (10 free lessons and 2 free websites) that you can use for a lifetime, and with a premium training package that’s unsurpassed in the industry.

To learn more about Wealthy Affiliate, you can access my review here. Better yet, sign up for the free training and discover for yourself if it’s what you’re looking for.

As a bonus for those who sign up for free training, WA offers premium benefits for your first 7 days on the free platform, to help you decide if you want to upgrade.

The 6-month pricing option reduces the price to $39/month ($234 payment) and the annual option reduces the price even further to $29/mo ($359 payment).  I went yearly after my first month as a premium member.

Hello, I really appreciate your time and effort on writing about Create & Go.

From your review it’s obvious they are a legit training course that teaches you how to build a profitable website business. They look pretty decent, but not the best out there. In terms of pricing I don’t like how there’s all these different courses that’s priced separately. I rather buy into a training program where they teach you everything for a set price.

Your recommendation looks to be something that would fit my needs better. Thanks for the article.

You’re welcome, Son.  That sounds funny.  I have 2 sons, but you’re not one of them.  One of the ways where I think Create and Go might be a little deficient is in tech support.  They don’t host their own domains and you have to find your own hosting, which I think is a drawback.

Still, it’s a decent training site and they offer pretty good programs.  Thanks for commenting.

Hi Grant

Nice article. It looks like Create and Go could be a good site for additional training (or perspective) as compared with WA, but it seems wildly expensive for what it really offers.

The comparison chart is a good head-to-head as well.

They also seem to imply big return promises, which is very misleading, I think.

Cheers,

Dave

You might be right, Dave.  I haven’t seen how many of their students have done well.  Just like WA, though, they will have their stars and they will have their mediocre people, and they will have their duds.  I think that it’s up to the individual, and how hard they want to work.

Hi Grant, just wanted to let you know I really enjoyed reading your review on Create and Go.  I did kind of expect that you would tell all the bad stuff, but was impressed that you gave them an honest review.  That is worth a lot to me.

I have not done any research on Create and Go before now so I was a total outsider looking in.  It all sounds good and the cost to get involved is not too great, I have seen some that have an initial cost of over a thousand dollars just to get started so their offerings seem very reasonable.  

Blogging for me seemed like something that I was not interested in until I got involved in Wealthy Affiliate myself.  Their training program has been so well laid out that I am learning all the ins and outs, and the community support is awesome.  Your comparison of the two programs reminded me that there is a lot out there that can help a person develop a website but nothing so far is even close to WA. 

Thank you for your great comment, Raymond.  I appreciate you taking some of your valuable time to leave me a note.  Honestly, if I hadn’t already found Wealthy Affiliate, I would probably be in Create and Go right now myself.  I like that they only charge once for a program and you’re in it for life.  

I think, though, that Wealthy Affiliate is much farther along with their training, and they have much more to offer.
