Feeling lost in the online business world? Don’t know where to turn next? Investing in an online course is a great idea. That doesn’t mean to say you should enrol in each and every course that is offered to you (hello information overwhelm!), but a select few that can help you fill your knowledge gaps can be a sound investment.
This months review is Allison Marshall from Wonderlass‘ course The Complete Online Business Blueprint.

What is the Complete Online Business Blueprint
The Complete Online Business Blueprint (COBB) is a complete blueprint from starting your blog or online business from scratch to becoming a profitable super blogger.
Who is the teacher
Allison Marshall of Wonderlass is the quirky, fun teacher behind the COBB. She has tonnes of energy, tonnes of knowledge and delivers that knowledge in a straight forward, concise no BS approach.
Allison is real and not afraid to tell it like it is. Like how she struggled for 5+ years before making any money from her online business. She now pulls in 5 figures a month consistently.
What will you get out of it

What I got out of it
I gained clarity with my website, where I wanted to go and my ideal audience. I also was able to increase my pageviews using the strategies in the Pinterest section. There is no longer the confusion and lack of focus that I was previously experiencing.
There are some paid offerings I have in the works that are thanks to Allison’s course as well. They will be released soon so keep an eye out!
I haven’t implemented too many of Allison’s more advanced techniques with this website yet as I am still building a solid foundation. They are all in the works though and I implemented them on my other websites to some fantastic results.
Results for my websites thanks to Allison’s course
- My email lists more than doubled for both my other websites. This website has already more subscribers than my others had when I started implementing the strategies on them
- My travel blog had an increase of several hundred percent (as you can see from the below picture). There were a couple of dips due to a bit of… lack of motivation (first dip) and Christmas (last dip). Since then it has grown even more and January was my best month
- Confidence within myself and knowing that I can do it. This is the most important takeaway for me as I have lacked confidence in myself since I can remember.
This is literally my favourite course that I have completed (and I have done loads thanks to my obsession with online bundles *facepalm*). It has everything you will need in one course which is super handy as you don’t need any others (if only this came about before my bundle obsession).
Other things I like about the course:
- The complete online business blueprint is constantly being updated.
- Allison is active in the Facebook Group and does live monthly Q&A’s on top of answering all our questions personally
- The COBB is thorough. You won’t need another course. Huzzah!
- I love Allison’s energy and personality, she’s not afraid to be her quirky ole self. Being kinda quirky myself, I can relate to her.
- You get a tonne of extra freebies such as how to customise your Squarespace website
This course is very expensive for your average Joe. The only way I was able to afford it was because I enrolled when it first opened and it was a quarter of the price. Even then I used monthly payment installations as it was still out of my budget.
Ah, the dreaded, ‘How much is going to set me back?’ question. Allison will occasionally do special deals through her free masterclasses so it pays to watch out for them. You can get the down low on when these happen on her public Facebook Group Creative Superheroes (which I recommend joining anyway).
At the time of writing (Feb ’19) the Complete Online Business Blueprint has the following pricing plans:
- A one-off payment of $1,997 or
- 12 monthly payments of $197
There is a 30-day money back guarantee as well so you can be assured that if you don’t love it you will get your moolah back in your hot little hands.
Allison has several free courses and resources on her website. Some of her free courses include: From stagnant to SUPER growth workshop, Ignite your list 4 part masterclass and How to create a wildly profitable online biz masterclass. I definitely recommend these as they are kind of a ‘try before you buy’. You can see what Allison’s teaching style is like before you commit. Plus, they are extremely useful products that you will get a lot out of.
She also has a YouTube channel with loads of videos to teach you the ins and outs of running a successful online business. I highly recommend checking out her YouTube channel to get a taste of what the Complete Online Business Blueprint will be like.
While the Complete Online Business Blueprint is a hefty investment, the rewards are tenfold. Have you taken Allison’s course yet? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
