Education bundles such as BC Stack, Conquer Your Clutter Super Bundle, and The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle can be a great way to learn about a topic. You can get hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars of educational materials from different experts for a fraction of the cost to purchase them individually. Oh, the joys of education bundles!
However, if you don’t have a plan of action you could miss out on key materials or become so overwhelmed with information you tune out.
E-mail Education Bundles: they’re for list-building
Let’s do some quick math, okay?
$27 per bundle, minus the payouts to affiliates, split between 65 people. How is anyone making any money?
The truth is, the people offering the e-books, courses, strategy sessions, etc. are participating mostly to get your name on their list so they can sell you their products.
Once you pay for the bundle you are probably going to have to sign up on many different sites. That’s a lot of noise in your inbox.
Solution: Set up a free e-mail account or filters/rules to handle all of the e-mails you are going to get.
After you Buy, Prioritize
Unless you plan on blocking out a month of 24 hour days, there is probably no way you are going to be able to digest all of the information in any bundle. And chances are some of the items will not be relevant to you.
Solution: Make a list of all of the items that immediately appeal to you and prioritize which you are going to tackle first.
Make a Schedule
Most of the items are only available for a limited time. And you only have so many hours in a day.
Solution: As you are reviewing the materials and prioritizing, enter deadlines into your calendar and set reminders.
Also, make an appointment with yourself to go over the materials that are not time sensitive. Schedule 30 minutes a week to better yourself, your blog, etc.
Take a Minute to Organize
Yippee! You just got 10 e-books, 3 strategy guides and a few menu plans and recipes. Plus you have a dozen e-mails with more coming daily.
So you leave the e-mail in your inbox and dump the files in your download folder. Wait! where was that guide on Google Analytics Dashboards?
Solution: Folders, lots and lots of folders. Organize the materials immediately in any way that makes sense to you. Change file names from things like NCS-01.zip or BSB10-BonusRecipes to something you will recognize in a month without having to open the folder.

You can always reorganize later but a full inbox and 200 files in your download folder are demoralizing. You are less likely to use the information or be able to find what you are looking for.
With a little planning and effort, you can maximize the value of any educational bundle, making a good deal even better.
