What Is It?
Make squeeze pages, collect emails, send out promotions via autoresponder.
This is the same old tired system that’s been done over and over again by the gurus. There’s nothing revolutionary about it, and the tools that you buy in Free Cash Formula are terrible.
Before You Buy
What you actually get in the product is 3 things:
- lead page creator
- video lead page creator
- email marketing training (7 videos)
Other than those things, there are a ton of other ads and recommendations to buy various products. Some of the products are related to Free Cash Formula, like Aweber and website hosting, while other products are just that…other things that have nothing to do with what you just bought.
This is just another example of a hyped launch that has no substance to the training. Newbies will be completely lost among the technical aspects and site navigation, and anyone with just a tiny bit of experience in email marketing will find the training absolutely useless.
What I Liked
There were a few training videos in the members area so I can’t say it was a complete scam. Making the squeeze page was pretty easy, but there are many ways to do this without subjecting yourself to the ridiculous amount of money they want you to spend inside the members area
Also, I like this guy’s sweater.
What I Didn’t Like
There’s a lot to not like here. Let’s break it down.
Ok, so he says it’s free. It’s not. Then he says it’s $49. It’s not (I paid $9)
“Andy Jacobs” says that we don’t need any technical experience. This is also not true, because to get your squeeze page uploaded you will need to download the files and upload them to your hosting via FTP.
Don’t know what that is? Well, there’s no training on it, so I guess “no experience necessary” is another lie.
He also claims that he personally guarantees we’ve never heard of this system on how to make money before. Um, making a squeeze page and collecting emails is probably the most common way to make money on the internet and sold in HUNDREDS of other similar products.
This scam artist went a step further and didn’t just lie to the end buyers, he’s also manipulating affiliates.
Did you see all those positive reviews in Google saying how the Free Cash Formula was so great and made them a ton of money? They are getting paid for each copy the sell. That’s also why they don’t tell you about the discount!
But check out the affiliate pages
Andy Jacobs (and Paul Jacobs, if those are their real names) posted pictures of fast cars, beautiful women, beaches, and piles of money to convince other people to sell their Free Cash Formula for them.
It’s very likely that the affiliates have never used it or even bought it, but are just interested in getting paid.
He also spends a lot of time talking about previous launches and million dollar Clicksure offers on the JV page (where they hire affiliates).
Clicksure is a scummy place, full of scams. Our buddy Andy spends so much time bragging about previous launches, he forgot to tell us which products his company launched before! As a matter of fact, searching for the names Andy Jacobs and Paul Jacobs turns up only ONE product launch: Free Cash Formula!
This means that either they are launching products under pseudonyms or have never actually sold a product before. Whatever is actually going on, it’s clear that these fools are lying to both buyers and affiliates.
The stuff in the members area is just plain awful. There are a total of about 10 training videos, varying from 1-20 minutes long.
Some, from the actual product creator is using a low-quality mic and video recorder to explain the basics of how to use the squeeze page creation software.
The bulk of the training is actually how to do the email marketing side of things. It’s only 7 videos long, and not create specifically for Free Cash Formula. I suspect it was PLR or white label from another product they copy/pasted into their own members area.
This is a worthless guru product launch that can be ignored.
Clearly there is an issue with transparency and quality with FCF. There are way better methods out there.
I personally use Wealthy Affiliate. It’s not a PDF and not a series of videos. It’s over 50 lessons and 500+ training modules of affiliate marketing training. It’s a newbie friendly members-only community where people can learn how to start their first online business, without being conned or spammed.
Check ‘em out for free, and see the difference between a “guru” like Andy Jacobs and a community like WA.
