Hey, before I write my detailed Inbox Blueprint review (2018), let me tell you that Anik Singal has updated the course and the members area recently. So, everything is fresh; the content and the videos.
Old/existing members can log in and access the updated version (2018) at no additional cost.
What is Inbox Blueprint?
Inbox Blueprint (IB) is an email marketing course, that teaches you the importance of email marketing and how to build an email list of subscribers by creating an opt-in page and driving traffic to that opt-in page.
An opt-in page is where you give away something (8-10 pages ebook, a video or an audio download) in return to person’s email address (and/or a name). For example, the picture below shows how you provoke visitors to enter their email address in order to download the copy.
Once a person subscribes, you can either send him to a page where you thank him for subscribing (known as thank you page) or directly send him to a page to buy something (known as affiliate page).
Anik Singal (creator of IB and CEO of LurnNation) personally teaches you how to generate extra income by promoting affiliate offers in your niche to your email list.
Affiliate offers are basically products owned by someone else with the right to sell on a commission basis. So, you do not require your own company or product, you can sell or promote other’s products or services and still make money.
There are several ways to make commissions, however, a recent survey has proven that email marketing is one of the most effective and fastest ways to grow your business.
This is where the entire Inbox Blueprint program built on. It contains step-by-step instructions on how email campaigns work teaching you the exact procedure to create an opt-in page and drive traffic to it.
Difference between Inbox Blueprint version 1.0 and 2.0
All of the content and basic ideas centered around email marketing are the same, except the fact that IB 2.0 includes the Launchpad technology! Updated videos, latest webinars and training sessions with Anik have been added in the new version (2018).
Version 1.0 was launched in 2014 (no more been sold) and version 2.0 initially got launched in 2016. There is a special discount for existing IB 1.0 students though (contact the Lurn support team to know about the discounted amount).
What Does It Include?
Once you login to the members area, you will come across Welcome videos by Anik Singal, Jeremy Bellotti (Lurn transformation coach), and Dave Lovelace (the Director of Education – Lurn team).
During your first login, it is necessary that you watch all the videos on the homepage before proceeding to the course modules. It takes an hour to watch all of them (4 videos as of today).
The videos are really helpful as they help you understand what the training is all about and how to navigate the members area. Basically, step-by-step instructions to achieve success.
Reviewing further, Inbox Blueprint 2.0 course has been divided into several sections spread into:
- 9 Modules
- 82 Lessons
- a members only forum (community)
- 6 Weeks Bootcamp
- weekly workshops
- exciting Bonuses
- detailed FAQs
- a complete module of Action, WordPress and Traffic Academy, and
- Kick Off training with Anik.
It also includes LURN Success Stories (absolutely REAL). Recently, they added Inbox Blueprint Certification which is mailed to your address once you clear the test completely.
Here’s the breakdown of the 9 Modules:
Module 2: Addiction Meter, teaches you how to find a niche and discover the most profitable one for your business.
Module 3: The Bait, is all about creating a free giveaway for your subscribers. If you have something for others, they do not mind subscribing to your email list.
Module 4: The Thank You Page (TYP) Method, shows how you can generate income from your subscribers and what is the right offer to promote.
Module 5: Email Machine Overview, helps you set-up your autoresponder emails and send them at an appropriate time.
Module 6: Emails and List Relationship, teaches how you should maintain a long-term relationship with your subscribers and sustain them. The more interactive they are, the more trust is built up.
Module 7: Payday Secrets, is an important module where you learn how to track and monetize your sales through product launches and affiliate promotions.
Module 8: Easy Traffic, is my favorite module. It teaches how you can drive traffic to your opt-in page (or even websites) and convert the visitors into sales.
Module 9: Unlimited Success, is where Anik Singal shares his secret about increasing email deliverability and open rates.
What makes Inbox Blueprint 2.0 awesome?
IB 2.0 is a one-stop course with an automated software, named LaunchPad, which takes care of your entire email marketing campaign. Launchpad is a software that helps create opt-in pages, free reports, autoresponders EMAILS and select an affiliate offer to run your campaign.
Merely everything, I really mean everything, is done by the software. You simply make a few selections and have everything done on your plate. Click here to learn about launchpad in detail here.
Walkthrough of the Members Area
I will review the latest 2018 version and add the recording pretty soon. Meantime, check it here.
My Final Review
A BIG YES from my side. I have personally gone through the entire course and followed each step carefully. The results are below 🙂
Email subscribers in first 5 months – 1033 (with 175 unsubscribes)
Commission transferred to my account in last 5 months – $10k+ (I have kept the sales and product information confidential)
One thing I would like you to follow is:
- Approach the teachings like a serious business
- Embrace the challenges (you won’t start noticing revenue the first day, you will need to put in time and efforts to see success)
- Optimize the stress and continue to move forward
I hope I was able to cover each aspect of the training in my review here. If you believe more information could be added or have a feedback/suggestion, I will be more than happy to hear.

Inbox Blueprint FAQs
Q. Where do I login for the training videos?
If you haven’t received your membership login username and password, then head over to https://members.inboxblueprint.com/, and click on “forgot password”.
You will then receive an email on your registered email address with the reset link. Click on it and type your new password.
P.S. – If you do not receive an email within 10-20 minutes, email email@example.com. You may have perhaps entered an incorrect email address or the lurn system did not create your account. The team will assist you in that case.
Q. How much time do you need to invest in this?
Frankly speaking, a week is enough if you give 3-4 hours daily to the course videos. You don’t necessarily need to watch the module videos, module 1 to module 6 is good to go 😉
Q. How much investment is needed after inbox blueprint course is purchased?
Okay, so be prepared. Though you will be told no more investment, it definitely needs little more.

But once you have a few subscribers, return on investment is awesome.
