What Is It?
An ‘all in one' course on how to build a marketing empire around your own personal interests.
Although possible to achieve, what they're teaching is extremely difficult to do, even more so for new people to marketing and business, so their claims are hugely misrepresented.
Before You Buy:
Boy, can this guy talk. There's an introduction video that's 1 hour long, and a 2nd sales video that's 45 minutes long.
To summarize: Follow your passions…bla bla bla…I'm rich and successful…bla bla bla…Tony Robins, Frank Kern, [insert famous marketers and speakers]…bla bla bla…I'll give you a discount…bla bla bla…buy my products.
Sitting through those videos was excruciating, so you're welcome.
Basically, the program teaches you how to make your own information products and market them in various ways, including physical CDs, downloads, seminars, speeches, webinars, PDF guides, articles, and internet marketing.
What I Liked:
The guys was charming and seemed to speak from the heart. There is a chance that what he is selling will actually work for some people. I truly believe that this is how he built is media marketing empire. He says a lot about following your passions which is great advice.
What I Didn't Like:
There was a lot of typical marketing hype, and I am so sick of people saying ‘so and so course' is valued at $60,000 dollars but they are going to give it to you for $97. Puuuuhleeeze. That marketing tactic is so played out.
It's a one time cost of about $2000, which is a hefty investment. Some people can front it, but I would certainly not spend my last 2 grand on this product. I didn't even buy this one to test the quality of the material because I didn't want to risk getting into any problems with the refund. Who has an extra 2 grand laying around?
I think there are much cheaper solutions for newbies to get started, and including all the FREE information that's available on the internet.
The last thing that I really dislike about these kinds of products is that this is not where the money stops. Sure, you pay two thousand dollars now, but in those videos he outlines 10 things you need to be selling to build your empire. You can be sure that there will be at least 10 more products he'll try to sell you, plus you will then be passed on to his cronies down the road. These guys work together. Remember that.
Who Is This Product For:
Someone with a long term time horizon, the patience, and the mindset to build a media empire. An expert in one or more subjects, and a confident, motivated, engaging personality.
