Product Name: Fan Page Money Method 2.0
Product Owner: Michael Cheney
Advertised Price: $10.99
What is it?
Fan Page Money Method is a quite large members only website which appears to be packed full of informative videos, tutorials and guides on using Facebook fanpages and Facebook ads to market and sell products. However, I was only to gain access to the “report”, an ebook, and a few “bonus videos”, which looks to be only one small part of the product.
Fan Page money Method fails to deliver on a number of important aspects. The lack of support and substance overpower it’s minimal ability to teach you a few of the basics. Basics, I might add that you can learn anywhere else, including Facebook itself. So in short, don’t buy this product.
Before You Buy
I reviewed the original Fanpage Money Method here, and also did not like it. TBH, I kind of forgot that I reviewed it, otherwise I wouldn't have done 2.0. Compare the two, and see what you think about each of them. Not all of Cheney's products bomb though. I thought that The Commission Machine was pretty good actually!
After you purchase version 2.0, there is an upsell that offers to provide you with templates for optin forms and squeeze pages that you can paste into your Facebook fanpage. This upsell will cost you an additional $97.
The main selling point here is that the work is already done for you. Meaning you don’t have to create and customize your own optin forms, instead you can just copy one that has already been made for you and change things like images and text to suit your needs.
It’s not too difficult to create your own Facebook optin page or video templates with the tools available today. Many of them allow you to generate a code that you can simply paste right into your page. So I don’t think it’s worth paying $97 for something you could do pretty easily.
What I Liked
There is one thing I liked about Fan Page Money Method…
Learn Some of the Basics
The report and associated videos provided some useful information for setting up a Facebook fanpage and running Facebook ads. If you’ve never done either of those things, you will learn something new here, and you will learn it the right way, which is valuable.
It’s the kind of information that’s readily available just about anywhere online that talks about Facebook, or marketing but it’s sometimes nice to have information all in one place.
It’s obvious that Michael knows a lot about Facebook because — although most of the information is basic — he’s able to tell you the reasoning behind everything. He also shows you some alternatives and some nuances that can help you avoid common newbie mistakes.
The best part is, he does a lot of with images, which allows you to see exactly what he’s explaining to you.
So for that, I’ll give Fan Page Money method a few brownie points.
What I Didn't Like
Anything that I liked about this product was immediately outweighed by the things I didn’t like.
What’s important to note here, is that these things are quite serious, fundamental problems with the product.
Fails to Deliver *or Overhyped*
Fan Page Money Method promises to show you how to find people with money on Facebook, discover profitable prospects, and generate income by selling your products to them.
It is supposed to be about finding hungry buyers on Facebook itching to purchase your product and getting them to buy it. Instead what you get is a few pages on which demographic to target and then two dozen on how to setup a Facebook funnel.
I’m sure that setting up a Facebook funnel is key to making money with Facebook, but how do you start making money with Facebook if you don’t know exactly who to target?
The ebook says you should target high wealth individuals who have quality education and high ranking job titles.
It’s great to know I shouldn’t spend time marketing my product to people who can’t afford it, but that doesn’t help me much.
The promise Michael made was to show me where the money was on Facebook and how to get it. Unfortunately, that’s a promise he didn’t make good on.
Seems to Be A Lot Missing
When I bought this product I assumed I was getting all that I needed. Sure, I expect an upsell or two that may provide some extra information. I did not expect that the majority of the product would be unavailable to me.
Once I got into the members area I started to click around, trying to access my purchase, and all I got was this message almost everywhere I clicked.
In that menu, there are three tabs (videos, templates and traffic), all of which have a drop down menu, which contains about a few additional links to resources like videos and PDF guides (I’m assuming, based on their labels).
So this got me to wondering: Exactly how much am I missing here? I mean, that seems to be a lot of information that I should have. Is it important?
To make things worse, the message tells me to upgrade but there is no clear way to do that. If I had bought this product thinking that it was going to help me build a business and earn money online, I would be confused and upset.
When I buy something that promises to teach me what I want to know, I expect to get at least most of the members area, not a tiny chunk of it!
Basic support is a problem that seems to plague so many of the product released these days. I understand that providing support to newbie marketers takes a lot of time and effort but it really is necessary to help them grasp things.
Fan Page Money Method, like so many others, offer technical support through a third party support desk.
What this means is that they have hired another company to handle support for things like downloading problems, payment issues and other technical troubles — that’s why it’s called “technical support”. That type of support cannot help you when you have questions about the information, strategy or implementation of it all.
If you ask me, that’s not really support. That’s covering your *ass* to minimize the amount of refunds you get. To prove my theory, we only have to look at the actual support page.
There are a few key indicators there that pretty much tell you you are on your own.
The first thing we notice is the big “Business Hours” prominently displayed as if to say, “if you have problems outside of these hours, well, good luck!”
The next thing is the “support desk” button. That lets you know for sure, that you are basically being forwarded to a third party who handles support for hundreds, maybe thousands, of other businesses. They know absolutely nothing about the information in this product, because they provide technical support only.
Finally let’s look at the underlined text that says “Please allow 24-48 business hours to receive a reply”. If you look again at their business hours, you’ll see that there’s a lot of potential for you to be left utterly alone for long periods of time. Hope it’s not urgent!
If there’s one piece of advice I can give you, it’s to find a product, community, mentor (or whatever) that can help you with all types of support — technical or otherwise — outside of typical ‘banker’s hours’. Trust me, that’s a big piece of the puzzle when you’re trying to build your first successful business.
Some people need a bit of extra help getting their first online business started, and most product creators just aren’t willing to give that extra support. Once a sale is done, it’s done, and you’re on your own. But I offer my continued support and assistance to all members of this online business community. Starter memberships are free, and you can even send me a message to see inside to see if I’m the real deal, or just another internet guru!
