Is Secrets of The Wealthy an easy way to make it rich? Or is Sgt. Mark’s system just going to be a waste of your money and time?
Of course it is being promoted as the greatest opportunity since the beginning of time, but what you hear isn’t necessarily true. And I’m here to help break up the confusion.
In this review I’ll be giving you a realistic look at what you would be getting into if you were to join Secrets of The Wealthy (SOTW).
Spoiler alert: This it is not the incredible system that it is claimed to be. You we’ll see what I mean by this.
This SOTW system was created by a guy named Mark that is a retired Army Sgt. It is all about being able to earn easy money online, or even off-line. There isn’t a focus on building some online business, learning some complicated new skills, or anything like that. It is strictly focused on giving people the opportunity to earn easy money with as little work as possible… No long training to get through or anything like that.
Sounds good… I mean who doesn’t want to earn money and who doesn’t want it to be super easy?
But while it is true that you can earn large amounts of money with this system, there are some serious downsides that I will be going over.
But anyways… The first video I came across when looking into this is pictured here…
In the video there was talk about being able to earn $10,000 per week in income with this system, which combines top tier sales with a “turnkey platform”.
The video is basically an introduction to the system, but really didn’t tell you much at all. It just hyped up everything and was basically to get you excited.
Below the video I noticed a bunch of testimonials from people who have supposedly been making tons of money with this system. But are they real or fake? I have reviewed tons of scams online with testimonials I have proven to be fake, but it can still be difficult to say for sure at times. When I first came across these testimonials they actually did seem legitimate to me, but as you will see in a bit… I’m hesitant to trust them.
In this video there was talk about people making over $100,000 a month and a ton more testimonials. However, after watching this video I was starting to question the legitimacy of these testimonials. There was a ton of people talking about “plugging in” to the system and profiting… Which just seems like a weird phrase for everyone to be using. It basically seems to me like they were being told what to say.
Back to the system: You are told that you can generate between $1500-$10,500 or more per week and that the system well…
After doing some looking around I was starting to see some similarities to other systems I’ve reviewed in the past, such as Big Profit System and High Ticket Income System. Basically the SOTW system is another high-ticket money scheme.
Basically what you do is buy into the system at ridiculous prices and then make money by recruiting other people into the system, just as you were recruited in.
There are four different product levels that you can buy in at… Ranging from $3000 plus an administrative fee to $21,000 plus the administrative fee. You can see their prices as follows…
4 Product Levels:
So after you buy in the goal is to resell the different products packages.
It isn’t a cash gifting scheme or anything like that. When you buy in at these different levels you do get a product. What you get is a bundle of E-training courses in things like business development, marketing training, personal development training, wealth education training and more. So you are getting some value.
However… These E-training products in my opinion are just a cover-up to try to add some legitimacy to this business, which is focused around buying in and then reselling these different product levels for massive commissions.
Once you buy and you will be able to earn 50% commissions on every sale that you help make. Of course your “success coaches” will close the sales for you, but you will still help make the sales in the first place.
So at a minimum, if you join at the lowest Gold level, which costs $3000, you will earn a 50% commission of $1500 when you recruit people in and they join at that level.
No one is buying into this system for the E-training products that they are getting… They are buying in so that they can earn large commissions recruiting other people in as well. That is it. The products are just there for legality purposes.
And while these products may have some value to them, they are definitely not worth the amount of money that people are paying for them. Just think about it… If the E-training products that you get at the Gold Level were really worth $3000, then how would they be able to pay people commissions of $1500 for recruiting other people into this level?
The goal here is obviously to sell this crap at insanely inflated prices for the sake of members being able to earn massive commissions.
Step 1: Lead Generation
So the first step is lead generation. This is when you capture email addresses and phone numbers for potential prospects.
In the presentation there is no detailed information offered on this, but there is mention of “ad packages”. So what it seems is going on here is that you will be purchasing these advertising packages to promote the system which will then lead to lead generation.
Step 2: Contact Prospects
After you promote the system and help generate some leads, they will be contacted by “success coaches” and sent directly to your webpage for as SOTW.
Step 3: You Get Paid
Then… If the people in the buy into the system you get paid commissions as discussed above. The same thing that is happening to you now is going to happen to the other people that you help recruit into the system.
You might be wondering… If the system really is as little work as you are told, then why do the results differ so much?
For example… In the video presentation there were testimonials from some people claiming that they are earning over $100,000 a month while others aren’t earning even close to that… So why the big difference?
If the system was doing all the work, then you would expect the results to be identical for everyone… When you?
Well… Just as was always to make money online, this is not going to be as simple as it seems. And much of the differences in earnings probably comes from the ad packages that you are going to have to buy, which start at $99 apiece.
One of the unfortunate sides to getting involved in a system like this is that you don’t really know what you’re getting involved in.
I know I hope to clarify some things and hopefully give you a better idea of what this is all about, but I still have some unanswered questions myself.
For example… He mentions that leads are generated both online and off-line… But what does he mean by this? How is this system going to generate leads off-line?
And it seems that you can also get paid directly to your bank account or by getting checks sent to your address… But how does this work?
These or questions I have no idea how to answer.
While there are some details to the system that I do not know, based on what I see and what I do know this is definitely not a system I am going to be recommending to my readers. Why not? Well… Because I just don’t think it will be worth it.
Well it is definitely possible to make large commissions with a system like this, I think that most people who buy into this will stand a greater chance of losing money rather than making money.
First off, you have to realize that recruiting people into a system like this is much easier said than done. People aren’t just going to take out $3000 (the minimum amount) and buy into something that seems a bit on the scammy side. Just like you, they will probably be suspicious and search for additional information online.
Second, I have reviewed other similar systems in the past in they never seem to last very long. They make their way online, or popular for a short period of time, and then disappearing and are never heard of again.
While everyone once in easy way to make money that requires little to no work, unfortunately ways like this are not very sustainable. I have been involved in online marketing since 2015 and I don’t know of any “super easy” way to make money online.
But anyways… I hope you enjoyed this review and found at least somewhat helpful. If you are looking for a legitimate and sustainable way to make money online, I would highly suggest taking a look at how I went from $0 to over $6000 a month online.
Leave any comments or questions down below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
The Profit Shortcut is supposedly some incredible system that is “done for you” and that people are making tens of thousands of dollars with per month… Earning big commissions. But is this the real deal or is it just another BS system that is full of lies?
Is it true that The Profit Shortcut is a scam like I have seen other people saying it is online?
Well…, While I might not consider it a complete scam, I definitely see where the people are coming from that are calling a scam and I agree with them to some extent. In fact, I mostly agree with them.
It is a good thing that you decided to do some extra research and found my review here because The Profit Shortcut is not nearly the amazing money maker that people promoted as. In fact, above the video presentation I watched it is described as a good way to make money “even if you are on a shoestring budget”, but this couldn’t be much further from the truth.
This whole thing can turn into a money sucking investment where you could potentially lose a heck of a lot of money, and I will go over all of this in my review here…
There might be several video presentations out there promoting The Profit Shortcut but the one I came across had a woman spokesperson, who near the end of the video you found out is named “Sarah Highland”.
The video started out pretty hyped up… With a video testimonials of people claiming to use the system and are supposedly making tons of money, some claiming that they have made up to over $12,000 in 30 days.
There is also talk of earning big commissions, it being incredibly beginner friendly, and of course you are told that you are one of the few people that has been selected to try out the system.
A lot of the video presentation makes this whole thing sound too good to be true, and of course if something sounds too good to be true it usually is. But the video presentation tells you very little about what you are really getting involved with… In fact, it tells you just about nothing. Basically the video presentation just tries to get you all excited about earning big commissions with very little work, but you have no idea what you will be doing.
All you know is that this “secret method” is supposedly going to make you tons of money and that spots are extremely limited in the video needs to be kept a secret, which is complete BS because anyone can go to the website, watch the video it and join.
There really isn’t much mention of it in the video, but if you paid close attention to the testimonials that were displayed early on, you may have noticed them mentioning someplace called “The Super Affiliate Network”, which I am very familiar with…
In a nutshell, The Super Affiliate Network is a high-ticket affiliate program that people buy into in order to make money online, but then they are just pushed to promote the program to other people as a way of making money. It is similar to the Legendary Marketer program if you have ever heard of this.
There are multiple tiers within the program, multiple membership tiers that range in price. People are lured in at the lowest and cheapest membership and then once they buy and they are pushed into the higher price memberships… All the while learning how to lure other people into this same scheme.
Now it is in all bad. I mean you definitely can learn a lot of good stuff through this training program and apply what you learn to many online businesses, but the fact of the matter is that members are really pushed to go out and promote The Super Affiliate Network to others as their way of making money.
But of course you don’t know any of this before you buy in. Because in the video presentation put on by “Sarah Highland” she doesn’t tell you anything about what you are actually getting involved with… Her goal is to just lure in as many people as possible.
Sarah Highland is doing exactly what you will be taught to do if you join… Promoting The Super Affiliate Network to other people as her way of making money online. When she gets people to buy into this, she earns commissions. This whole The Profit Shortcut website was created by her as a way to lure people into joining the program, and there are many other websites out there like this that were created by members, such as Super Affiliate Success for example.
But you may be wondering what she means when she says that when you are successful she is more successful…
At one point she even says that “when you’re successful, I’m successful”. But what does this all mean?
Well the reason she is saying this is because the Super Affiliate Network has a 2-tier commission structure. Not only do you earn commissions when you recruit others into the program and they pay for their membership, but you also earn commissions when they go out and recruit others in.
This is not a MLM (multilevel marketing) scheme because by definition “multi” means two or more, but it is very similar because you can recruiting people beneath you and earn money off of their earnings.
Who cares what it is… As long as you can make money right? I know a lot of people out there are just looking for a way to make money and would be more than happy getting involved in something like this as long as it is possible.
However, the unfortunate fact is that success rates are incredibly low with this program. And fortunately they are honest about them and if you go to The Profit Shortcut income disclosure you will see this…
As you can see there are different ranks, Rocky, producer, builder, leader, and influencer. While those at the top are making good money, the amount of these people is so if you it is ridiculous. You can see that there are 39,840 people at the rank of “Rookie” that made in average annual income of $103, and there are only 2 people with the rank of “Influencer” that made an average annual income of $176,652. The overwhelming majority of people are earning close to nothing.
Now I will admit that, having been involved in online marketing since 2015, there are extremely high failure rates with just about every method out there for making money online. However, if you couple this with the fact that this program can be incredibly expensive, this definitely does not seem like something that is “as beginner friendly as it gets” like you are told.
As I mentioned earlier, there are different tiers of membership within this program.
When you originally buy in through The Profit Shortcut sales page, you are buying the Basic Membership that costs only $37 a month. However, there are different memberships and products available within the program that you will be pushed into buying which include things like the Premium Membership that cost $97, the Pro Membership that cost $2497, and even a face-to-face mentoring trip to Maui called the Maui Intensive Mentoring which costs a massive $12,497.
With each of these membership/products you get more and better training, but along with that you also get the ability to make higher commissions because you are only allowed to promote products that you already own yourself. So there is a lot of incentive to purchase the more expensive products so that you can sell them and try to earn more money.
I’m not going to call this a scam because it does provide a lot of value and you can get a lot out of the training, and also because I need to be careful with what I call a scam these days, but there is no doubt that is very “scammy” and I totally understand where people are coming from that are calling it a scam.
The problem here is that you are being lured into joining a very expensive opportunity without having any idea what you are really getting involved with.… Which is one of the reasons that I call it “a great way to lose money”… Because failure rates are going to be extremely high due to the fact that people just don’t know what they’re getting into.
So all in all, I definitely do not recommend anyone buying into this. Something else worth thinking about is that this whole scheme could get shut down. We have seen many other similar “make money online” games get shut down recently, such as MOBE which also had a 2-tiered affiliate program, and the FTC seems to be going after a lot of these sorts of programs.
There are a lot of different methods/systems out there to make money online, some that work and some that don’t. There are lots of paths you can take to get to the end goal of making money online, the hard part is deciding which approach to choose.
However, if you are looking for a legitimate and proven way to make money online then I suggest taking a look at this…
This is exactly how I went from $0 to over $6,000 a month working online for myself… Something that I know works from experience in that have seen others have success with.
But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it informative. Please leave any questions or comments down below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
There are a lot of people out there promoting The Super Affiliate Network as an easy way to make money online, but is it really that easy? How much money are people really making with this program? Could this all possibly be one big scam?
There are definitely a lot of questions that should be answered before buying into a program like this, especially when you see other people saying that The Super Affiliate Network is a scam… You should at least be a bit concerned and do further research.
In this review I hope to provide you with all the necessary information so that you can make a more informed decision on whether or not this program is right for you. I will be going over pretty much everything you can think of in this review, from what exactly The Super Affiliate Network is and what it is focused on, the different memberships, pros v cons, how much affiliates are really making and more.
This review is going to be pretty detailed and lengthy so I have provided you with this nice little quick navigation menu below if you want to jump to a certain section :-)…
First up... What exactly is The Super Affiliate Network? And by the way, I will be referring to The Super Affiliate Network as "SAN" throughout this review just to let you know.
SAN is an online affiliate marketing membership training program that was created by Misha Wilson in 2015. The program is set up to give beginners a clear step-by-step blueprint for making money with affiliate marketing and provides many "done for you" features.
It it is often advertised as being a "done for you system" that requires little work. But is this true?
The answer is, yes… It is true. Much of the system is already set up and in place for you, because the focus here is on getting members to promote the system (SAN) to other people.
So you already have the sales funnels in place, the products in place, etc. Essentially all you have to do is go out and promote the system.
SAN is low to high-ticket affiliate training program that focuses on getting members to make money online by promoting the various SAN products and memberships. It is similar to Legendary Marketer if you are familiar with this.
Like many other "make money online" programs out there, SAN lures people in with the hopes of making money online and then pushes them to make money online by further promoting the brand.
And when I say it is a "low to high-ticket" program, what I mean is that the entry-level membership in products are low-priced but there are much higher upsells waiting, which will cost you thousands of dollars and you can also make thousands of dollars promoting them.
The basic membership is the introductory membership that people start off buying into. Whenever you see SAN being promoted this is what they are pushing you to buy into.
It is often advertised with a $1 trial for 30 days, and then $47 per month after that. However, if you decide to skip the one dollar 30 day trial, you can get the membership at a reduced price of $37 per month from the start.
This basic membership starts you off with a three week boot camp which consists of 21 modules. This will give you the basics and teach you about list building, email marketing, selling, in the mindset that you need to have to be successful.
In addition to the training you will also be assigned a coach that will help guide you through the process. However, some people claim that these "coaches" just try to upsell you on the next most expensive product within the SAN line-up.
The Premium membership is a one time charge of $97 that will give you access to the Solo Ad Success Formula course, which you can guess is all about solo ads.
What are solo ads? They are email based advertisements that you pay for. Basically what you do here is pay owners of large email lists to advertise your offer to their list.
You have to take into account that advertising like this is another expense that comes with this business model.
This is a $47 upsell that is pushed on you when you first join the network as a new member. With this Super Affiliate of so you get access to monthly video newsletters from Misha about the current state of online marketing, what is and isn't working, etc.
And then this is where the "high ticket" products begin. The Pro membership is a whopping $2497, but is only a one time charge. When you are a pro member you access to everything listed above, plus Authority Hacking, Systematic Profits, Magnetic Selling Machine, Push Button Swipe File Collection, Pro coaching and more.
You also get access to the private Facebook group, which in my opinion is a pretty big deal. Here you will actually be able to connect with people outside of the SAN, but still talk about SAN. This gives a little more sense of freedom to communicate.
As a pro member you also get access to the new products second on the future.
And lastly is the Maui intensive mentoring, coming in at $12,497. This gives you access an in person mastermind event that lasts four days and is hosted in Maui, where believe Misha lives. These events are capped off at a limit of 20 people.
This is where you get some serious inside access and are able to network with the top marketers in the SAN. You also get to meet Misha himself.
Topics discussed here can be about anything really, marketing funnels, sales machines, email marketing, etc.
There are a lot of old reviews of The Super Affiliate Network which list products that no longer exist and ones that might/might not exist. There is definitely some confusion around The Super Affiliate Network and if anyone could help me clear things up I would greatly appreciate it.
For example, what happened to the gold and silver Pro Membership? Now it seems that there is just one Pro Membership. And also what happened to the "All In Experience" product package that they used to have? This was priced at a whopping $17,000 and give you everything SAN had to offer.
It appears that SAN is going through some structural changes and I can't help but wonder if this is due to the FTC cracking down on recruitment schemes like this, which I will get into later in this review.
When you first get started in SAN you really have no idea what you are getting too, little do you know that you are entering a funnel system that slowly pushes you to buy the next most expensive product in an attempt to make more and more money.
The affiliate program they have in place is 2 tiered. What this means is that you can earn commissions from the people you recruited in directly as well as the people that they recruit in. However, the amount of commissions you will be able to earn will change drastically depending on what type of member you are. Below I will go over how much you can earn as a basic member, as a premium member, and as a pro member.
As a basic member you will be able to earn 70% from the sales made from your personal recruits and 5% from the sales that those recruits make when recruiting in other people. This his for when you or your recruits sell the Basic Membership.
When you or your recruits sell the Premium Membership you will be able to earn 40% and 5% respectively.
As a premium member you will earn the same 70% and 5% commissions from the Basic Membership, but you will also earn 70% and 5% commissions from sales of the Premium Membership.
And this is where things crazy. As a Pro Member you will be able to earn 70% from your sales of the Basic Membership and Premium Membership along with 20% from the sales of your recruits.
Additionally, you will be able to earn 34% from your personal sales of the Pro Membership along with 17% from your recruits' Pro Membership sales. This is going to be a pretty large number since the Pro Membership costs $2497. It equals out to be about $850 when you recruit someone in who purchases this membership.
The catch is that you can only earn commissions on the Pro Membership sales if you are a Pro Member yourself. This is the type of thing you are not told early on and have no idea about when you are first joining.
You have no idea that you will be pretty much forced to purchase the next upsell in an attempt to increase earnings. This is what most people call a "pay to play" opportunity. You first have to dish out the money in order to get the opportunity to make money back on that investment.
There are definitely some concerns when it comes to this 2-tiered affiliate structure, which allow you to make money not only from your personal product sales, but also from the sales that your recruits make.
Is a pyramid scheme? I wouldn't call it such, but I would say that it does make this opportunity more likely to be under the FTC's radar because it increases incentive to recruit as many people in as possible, although that was pretty much the goal all along anyhow.
Now that you have read my review this far, you probably have a pretty good idea of how much it actually costs to get involved in an opportunity like this, however I want to discuss it a bit more.
As you can see below, this is often advertised as a good way to make money online even if you are on a "shoestring budget", meaning you don't have much money to spend. However, I strongly disagree with this.
In a perfect scenario what you would do is join as a Basic Member, then make enough sales to purchase the Premium Membership, and then make enough sales to eventually purchase the Pro Membership… Moving your way up the ladder as you earn money. However, this often is not how things actually work and most people will have to invest their own hard-earned money.
Furthermore, you also have to remember that there are advertising costs if you follow along with the training as well.
The focus of the training you receive at SAN is on paid advertising. This includes solo ads, Facebook ads, YouTube ads, and PPV… All of which cost money and all of which further make this opportunity not all that great for someone on a "shoestring budget".
You also have to realize that with recruitment based programs like this there is a lot a competition among members, which drives the price of advertising up and also saturates the market, ultimately making it more difficult to make money. However, the same goes with anything.
The answer to this question is largely based on opinion, but I think that many people out there would consider it to be a scam. It depends… Do you think that recruitment schemes are scams?
It is pretty obvious that The Super Affiliate Network is a recruitment scheme. They lure people in with promotions of being a "done for you system", in which they are obviously talking about all of the pre-made sales funnels and products that they have in place for making money promoting The Super Affiliate Network to other people.
So is a scam? I'm going to leave this question up to you to answer.
Whether you think that SAN is a scam or not, the fact of the matter is that the FTC has been cracking down on programs is very similar to this recently and whether or not SAN could be shut down in the future is definitely not out of the question.
It would really suck to buy into SAN, spend a bunch of money hoping that you can go out and promote the system to make it all back, and then the entire thing getting shut down by the government. When that suck?
MOBE was incredibly similar. It had the same type of 2-tiered affiliate structure and sold the same type of online marketing products/memberships that were geared towards getting members to promote the system to others.
They were shut down in spring of 2018 (or maybe it was early summer) for fraudulent business practices, which I think me and they came down to how the opportunity was often promoted in a very misleading way, which I also just discussed how The Super Affiliate Network is also promoted in this manner.
First off... It is obviously for someone who is confident in the system and is not think it will be getting shut down anytime soon. But furthermore, it is also for someone that has some extra money to spend and is looking for in the easy way to make money online, since much of it is "done for you", although it really isn't easy.
This is not for someone who is looking to create their own sustainable business. The reason for this is because of all the "done for you" stuff, which just makes you more reliant on the system. You don't learn how to create sales funnels, create websites, anything like that. All that stuff is done for you and you are pretty much completely dependent on the system… If the system goes under so do you.
This might be the most important question yet… How much are affiliates making with SAN?
I can say all the negative stuff that I want to, but if affiliates are showing high incomes than SAN must be a good choice… Right? Well… Unfortunately they are not.
According to the official income disclosure statement of SAN, which is legally required, an incredibly minute percentage of affiliates make enough money to live off of, or even close to that. You can check out the table below which I took a screenshot of directly from the official website…
Also on the income disclosure page they state that "the average partner spends between $3000 and $12,000 in expenses per year as they build their business", yet "less than 2% earns sufficient commission to cover their costs of The Super Affiliate Network products".
That pretty much sums it all up right there… Affiliates are spending more money for these high-ticket products than they are making back from trying to resell them to others.
Again, the statistics come straight from The Super Affiliate Network and the only reason they make these publicly available is because they are legally required to do so.
So maybe SAN isn't quite as "scammy" as the infamous MOBE was, since they are making it apparent that you more than likely will lose money.
*Note: It is also important to note that these figures shown above, only from affiliates of the SAN. There is no way for SAN to measure income from their members that is coming from outside sources. As I stated earlier, it is possible to apply what you learn from SAN to any online business, HOWEVER… There probably aren't going to be many people earning other streams of income because of the main focus being on getting members to promote SAN.
While there are some people that have success with The Super Affiliate Network, although very few, this is not something I'm going to be promoting or recommending by any means.
There are a handful of reasons why I would not recommend getting involved with The Super Affiliate Network. The training is great and all, but it is ridiculously overpriced (the higher ticket products)… And it is carefully designed this way to give affiliates more incentive to promote the products, of course after they purchase them themselves.
A much more affordable option, and a program that I can say works from my personal experience, is Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate happens to be the same program I got started with back in 2015 when I first started looking for ways to make money online. And now I make a living working online, which goes to prove that it does work.
Not only is Wealthy Affiliate a much more affordable and honest training program, but it also teaches you how to build your own sustainable online business that is not reliant on any one source of income, such as how SAN members become reliant on SAN as a means of income.
But anyways… If interested click the button below to read my full review. I'm not going to go into detail here.
Please leave any comments or questions down below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂 Also, if you have your own personal review of The Super Affiliate Network then I would also appreciate it if you left that down below as well. I'm sure other readers can benefit from what you have to say.
Is Legendary Marketer a scam? Can you really make money with this program? How much money can you potentially lose?… These are all questions that are very important and should definitely be answered before diving into a program like this.
If you came looking for answers on Legendary Marketer then you are right we need to be. In this in-depth review I’ll be going over (hopefully) everything that you need to know about Dave Sharpe’s Legendary Marketer program.
And I’ll tell you what… I’ll cut straight to the point here… No Legendary Marketer is not a scam, HOWEVER there is definitely a lot of very misleading promotional material out there and you do not want to get involved with this unless you truly know what you’re getting involved with. You can make money with this program but it also can be a great way to lose $20,000 and more.
Because this review is so in-depth it is rather long, which is why I’ve provided these quick navigation links for you 🙂
Legendary Marketer, found at LegendaryMarketer.com, is a high-ticket online marketing training program and more. Besides providing training on lead generation, finding products to promote, building your own digital products, advertising.. just to name a few… It also provides coaching/training on becoming a true independent entrepreneur.
In addition to all of this are also a lot of “done for you” components to this program. There’s a good chance you came across what is called “Duplicate Dave“.
“Duplicate Dave” is just another name for the Legendary Marketer program. The reason is called Duplicate Dave is because of all the “done for you” components, which allow you to easily duplicate a system that is proven to sell.
Okay… Maybe I said that in a confusing way… What I’m trying to say is that there are pre-made sales funnels, ads, emails, etc., that you can use to simply promote the Duplicate Dave system to other people and make money.
In a Nutshell:
Legendary Marketer is an online marketing training program that is designed to help people start making money online, develop their own online businesses, scale, and even potentially grow them to massive proportions. There is a lot of really good training within this program but what creates most of the controversy around it is the duplicatable system and how many people joined the system and then go out to promote it to others.
Much of the training, and pretty much all of the “done for you” components, or focused on getting members to go out and promote Legendary Marketer to other people. You get training focused on selling the same system to other people and also get the resell rights to the different “tiers” of training that you have purchased yourself.
I’ll go more into detail on all of this soon.
The program is very similar to The Super Affiliate Network (if you’ve ever heard of this place) but in my opinion a little better.
Dave Sharpe talks about how he has made over $170 million in sales online. It is this really true?
Well, I can’t say with 100% certainty, but I am guessing it very well could be true. Dave Sharpe has been around for a while and is well known for being highly successful when it comes to online marketing.
He is probably the most well-known for his involvement with Empower Network, which was a high ticket program (somewhat similar to Legendary Marketer) that was basically a pyramid scheme. It collapsed a while back and tons of people lost tons of money. There are plenty of reviews on the Empower Network that you can look into if you want to.
So this really there is a monkeywrench into everything doesn’t it? The day was involved in a high ticket program that most people would probably consider it a scam… Not a good sign.
That said… Legendary Marketer is much different and much more legitimate without a doubt. In fact, it has no pyramid -like structure so it cannot be considered a pyramid scheme by any means.
There are many different promotional videos out there online for “Duplicate Dave” and Legendary Marketer, which are one and the same. Much of the promotional material focuses on franchising and why starting a franchise business is the way to go.
Dave tells you that 1/10 traditional businesses fail, but 9/10 franchise businesses are successful in the real world. I looked this up and according to Entreprenuer.com this is true in some cases. So why not apply the franchise model to online business?
This is essentially what Dave is doing with Legendary Marketer. You can buy in and then resell the same system to other people, earning commissions this way. By doing this you do not have to work on developing your own product/service or anything like that. And as I mentioned earlier, you are provided with many “done for you” components to make it even easier.
The “killer ads”, the sales funnels, the email follow-up series… It is all done for you.
Good or Bad?
This can somewhat be looked at as both good and bad. There is no doubt that much of the focus of Legendary Marketer is on promoting the same system to other people, in which the ethics of this business model could be questioned. However, this franchise model makes it easier for complete beginners to get started online, people who have no product to sell and have no previous experience in online marketing.
Another downside to this is that you aren’t really going to learn how to do much for yourself. For example… You get sales funnels that are proven to convert when it comes to promoting Legendary Marketer, but you aren’t going to be taught how to create your own killer sales funnel if you want to promote another offer.
Sure.. There is absolutely no reason why you can’t apply what you learn here to other online businesses, but the focus is on promoting Legendary Marketer and this is much easier to do.
Okay… Now let’s talk about the different products in the cost to get started with this program.
I have seen it described as a “pay to play” system. This means that you have to pay for the different products before you can earn money promoting them. There isn’t just one product within the Legendary Marketer program. There are multiple products ranging from $30/mo up to $12,000. You only are able to promote the products that you personally have purchased.
So for example: if you buy into Legendary Marketer’s Club for $30 per month, you will only be able to make money selling this product to other people. If you want to make large commissions selling the expensive $12,000 product, you will first have to purchase that.
The different products that are within Legendary Marketer in the commissions you can earn reselling them are as follows…
You can also become a free affiliate and earn commissions but the amount you will earn as such is not even relatively close to what is shown above.
Also, there used to be a product called Legendary Lifestyle Experience that was priced at $30,000. This included meet ups in exotic locations and one-on-one training with Dave, but I have no idea what happened to this product… It is not listed anymore.
Anyways… I will briefly touch on all of the currently available products below:
1) Legendary Marketer’s Club ($30/mo) – This is your introductory course and is what you will normally be funneled into buying when you see promotions for “Duplicate Dave” and such online. This course provides introductory material on all sorts of things, such as advertising on Facebook and YouTube, lead generation, marketing on Facebook and YouTube without spending money, and you also get access to weekly live webinars.
And again, with this you also get all the “done for you” stuff, such as the sales funnel, landing pages, different types of ads, a massive 45 day follow-up email sequence, and more.
2) Traffic Rolodex ($247 one time) – This products is all about traffic generation. It is a bundle of a courses and provides more advanced in detailed advertising training than the Legendary Marketer’s Club product discussed above. You will learn paid advertising from experts who are actually good at doing what they do, you will be shown how to set up campaigns for Google, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and so on.
Also… One thing that, my eyes that they teach you how to make your landing pages compliant so that you don’t get your account banned. Facebook is a real bitch when it comes to banning advertising accounts. I’ve had my account banned multiple times in the past and it is one heck of a hassle trying to get them to re-enable it. So it is very good to see that they teach you how to do this the right way so that you don’t have to deal with all this crap.
3) Affiliate Business Blueprint ($2,500 one time) – This blueprint is obviously all about affiliate marketing, which is what you are doing if you are going to promote Legendary Marketer to other people. Affiliate marketing is when you simply promote products online, that aren’t yours, and earn commissions when you help make sales. This is a great business model for beginners.
Unlike the Legendary Marketer’s Club, this product focuses more on affiliate marketing in general, and is in all about promoting Legendary Marketer to other people.
4) Digital Products Business Blueprint ($2,500 one time) – Have you ever wanted to create your own digital product, such as an e-book? Well then this blueprint will help. Here you are guided on creating your very and to show product based on your knowledge.
5) Coaching & Consulting Business Blueprint ($2,500 one time) – This is a blueprint for starting your own coaching/consulting business online. You will be guided through identifying a niche, developing a sales pitch, delivering your product/service, and scaling your business.
This type of thing is probably not for the majority of people reading this review… It is more for those that are advanced and most people reading this probably don’t have an interest in it.
6) Events & Masterminds Business Blueprint ($2,500 one time) – Here is another blueprint that is pretty darn advanced and probably not for the majority of people reading this. This blueprint is all about setting up your own mastermind live event. It covers things like hiring people for the event, selecting a post venue, etc.
You can certainly make a heck of a lot of money hosting live events like this if you are good, but this is very advanced.
7) Legendary Marketer Mastermind ($8,000 one time) – And then come the mastermind events. This event consists of a three day life meet up with top online marketers. The focus here is on lead generation and conversions.
These events are held at locations in the US, often times that places like mansions.
8) Legendary Entrepreneur Mastermind ($12,000 one time) – This is another mastermind event that consists of a three day in person made up. However, this is more advanced and more for someone who is looking to become a true entrepreneur, in all senses. Topics at this event include health, wealth, wisdom and growth.
If you don’t have much money to spend and you don’t have any prior experience in online marketing, then this might not be that great of a choice for you.
As mentioned, the Legendary Marketer’s Club is focused on duplicating the system… Getting you to go out there and promote it to other people. If you’re going to continue on this path then you’re going to want to be able to earn higher commissions, which means you will want to purchase the more expensive higher ticket products to sell.
Now if everything went perfectly, you would be able to sell enough Legendary Marketer’s Club memberships to cover the costs of the next product, and you would then sell enough of the next product to cover the cost of the next product… And so on. But of course things don’t work out this way most of the time and you will have to invest money with the hopes of getting it back one day.
There is no doubt that there is a heck of a lot of value provided when compared to the cost, in particular with the Legendary Marketer’s Club membership. It only cost $30 per month and comes with an abundance of training.
I don’t think anyone can really argue that you get way more than they pay for here.
However, this is common when it comes to high ticket programs like this. Often times the introductory product is low-priced and provides significant value. This way you get a lot of people to join the system, in which they then get up-sold on the more expensive products.
Good quality training
Dave knows what he is doing and in this program the other people that provide training know what they are doing as well. This is by no means a program that provides low-quality or outdated training. The training is up-to-date and is proven to work.
When it comes to people complaining about Legendary Marketer, I don’t think anyone is really complaining about the quality of the training. If you see complaints, they are probably complaining about misleading promotional material making it seems easier than it really is, it costing more than they were led to believe, and so on.
30 day moneyback guarantee
Of course there is also the 30 day money back guarantee.
Now I know a lot of people out there are probably worried whether or not this is actually real, and I can assure you that it is. I know there are a lot of scams out there that will claim to provide a guarantee but will never follow through with it. Legendary Marketer will honor this guarantee so there is no need to worry here.
This it may sound a bit weird… Above I said that the training is good quality and provides a lot of value, yet here I am saying that is overpriced. Well… It is both.
There is a lot of value here, but with the higher-ticket products there is definitely some massive overpricing going on. Just think about it… Affiliates that sell the Legendary Entrepreneur Mastermind for $12,000 are earning a $4800 commission. Why such a large commission? Why not just sell the product for cheaper in the first darn place?
The reason there are such massive commissions is because this creates increased incentive to go out and promote Legendary Marketer products to other people. The prices are inflated for this reason.. Not all of them however.
Focused on self promotion
A lot of people really do not like programs that supposedly provide you with a way to make money online and then teach you to make money online by selling the program to other people. This is definitely an understandable complaint about Legendary Marketer, however I will say that there is also a lot of good training that is not focused on promoting the system.
That said, this is something that I definitely do not care for.
Something that I didn’t mention is that when you join you will be assigned a “coach”. However, many people havecomplained about these coaches just being sales men that try to get you to purchase the next more expensive products so that they can earn their money.
This is something that is common when it comes to high-ticket programs and I certainly do not doubt that this is the truth.
Since much of the focus within this program is on promoting it to other people, you may be wondering how much affiliates are actually making.
Well… This might come as somewhat of a disappointment, but according to the official income disclaimer, “the average annual gross income for affiliates is projected to be between $500 and $2,000”. So if you take the median of this range, you get $1250…. Pretty disappointing.
Now of course this is the estimated average annual income for affiliates of the system, not counting people that have used Legendary Marketer training to promote other various offers. However… There probably aren’t all that many of these people due to the fact that much of the system pushes members to become affiliates and promote it to other people.
Seeing in extremely low average income like this makes me question the success rate that Dave talks about, which he claims is that 9/10 franchise businesses tend to be successful. I guess this depends on what you consider successful and it also really depends on the particular franchise in question. Not all franchises have the same success rates.
I was recently reading an article on Forbes about the worst vs best franchises to buy. What you get involved with makes a big difference, which I think is common sense.
One of the main reasons for me writing this review is to help clear the air on what exactly Legendary Marketer is. There is a heck of a lot of misleading promotional material out there and often times it leads people to believe that this is going to be some super easy way to make money online.
The income disclaimer tells it all… If it were super easy than a lot more people would be making a lot more money.
What you have to remember is that the people promoting this are doing so to make money themselves. They are promoting it as some amazing way to make money online, but if people don’t buy into it then they don’t make money online in the first place.
There are all sorts of ads out there for this system along with many different websites and sales funnels. I actually reviewed a website called End Financial Stress Now a while back that is a sales funnel for the Legendary Marketer system.
One concern that many people have, and if you are concerned about this then you should be, is that this business might get shut down by the government.
Could you imagine buying in, spending a bunch of money, and then the business going out of business… Leaving you high and dry. Don’t think this stuff can’t happen because it does all the time.
The reason some people are concerned about this is because of the whole business model that is running here, where people buy in at a low price and are later up-sold on higher-ticket more expensive products, all the while being pushed to go out and sell these products to other people.
In the recent past we have seen similar online marketing training programs shut down by the FTC. First there was Digital Altitude’s Aspire program, which is basically a pyramid scheme. Now Legendary Marketer doesn’t have to worry about being shut down for this because there is no MLM compensation structure, it is a simple one-tiered affiliate marketing structure.
However… MOBE is a little more similar and they were also recently shut down by the FTC for being a scam… Mainly due to misleading people to buy in without being straightforward about the real costs of the system. And I hate to say it, but Legendary Marketer is pretty darn similar when it comes to this, although not as bad I will say.
Since you are reading my review I am guessing that you at least care a little bit of what I have to say on this matter. Do I recommend Legendary Marketer, in particular for beginners?
While I do see the value in the training provided, and it is definitely possible that you could go on to make good money with this training program, this is not something that I am personally going to recommend. I have two main reasons for not recommending it: 1) I just don’t care for systems like this that really push members to go out and promote the system to other people, and 2) This it is just too darn expensive for many people out there looking to make money online.
I remember when I was first getting started looking for ways to make money online and I certainly didn’t have the money to spend on a program like this. I mean sure, I could have joined for the $30/mo Legendary Marketer’s Club membership, but this will only get you so far as I have already explained… You will have to purchase more if you want a good shot at making good money.
What I Suggest
I would suggested the Wealthy Affiliate training program over Legendary Marketer without a doubt. Wealthy Affiliate is actually where I got started back in 2015 when I first started looking for ways to make money online. It obviously works because I am now making a living doing this online marketing stuff, which I never really thought was possible.
The reason I would definitely recommend Wealthy Affiliate is because it is much more affordable. Not only is the program itself way less expensive, but the training also focuses on free traffic generation techniques, which are very effective and that they are… uhhm… Free! This is compared to Legendary Marketer’s focus on paid traffic generation, which can get pricey.
I’m not going to get into all the details here, but I would highly recommend reading my Wealthy affiliate review by clicking the button below…
Questions or comments? Leave them them below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Also, what do you think about Legendary Marketer? I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on things and I’m sure other readers would appreciate them to.
Millionaire Mentors Alliance is promoted as being some “turn-key”, “ready-made” business that you can easily make tens of thousands of dollars was… But is it really? Is this place really the next big money making opportunity that you should be buying into right away or is Millionaire Mentors Alliance a scam that is just going to be a waste of your money and time?
The truth is that the information you are given is pretty darn misleading. As has become commonplace in the online world, opportunities like this are usually marketed in a way that is deceptive and leads you to believe that they are better than they really are.
Can you make money with this Millionaire Mentors Alliance system? Sure… You can. But will you? Will you recoup your initial investment? This is a whole different story.
Millionaire Mentors Alliance, found at MillionaireMentorsAlliance.net, is a high-ticket online business opportunity that is focused around people buying into the opportunity to make money online and then reselling that same opportunity to other people. In a way it is similiar to other high-ticket systems like Legendary Marketer and U-Economy.
There are a number of different product packages offered within Millionaire Mentors Alliance. These different product packages range in price from $500-$50,000 which obviously is a heck of a lot of money. With each package you get courses in cryptocurrency (I’m talking about things like bitcoin here) along with a bunch of online marketing stuff, such as training in advertising, email marketing, blogging, traffic generation, social media marketing, and even things like time management and self hypnosis.
But like I said, the main point here is to buy into the program and then make money by reselling it to other people. Maybe you are interested in learning about cryptocurrency and will find the cryptocurrency courses provided beneficial, but most people are buying in for the “turn-key” system in which they can use the online marketing training provided to resell this business to others and earn massive commissions.
As I said, the product packages range in price from $500-$50,000 as you can see below…
But when you buy into the system you will be paying more than just the price shown. You will also be paying in admin fee that varies depending on which package you purchase. The admin fee will go to Millionaire Mentors Alliance in the product package cost you have to send to your sponsor, a.k.a. the person that recruited you in.
How It All Works In a Nutshell
The way this “turn-key” business model is set up is so that you earn 100% commissions on the product packages. The Bronze Package costs $500 and if you recruit someone else in who buys the same package, they will pay you $500. The same goes for all the other packages… If you recruit someone in and they purchase the Platinum Package for $15,000, then you earn $15,000 in commission.
So the members who are reselling the packages get paid 100% of the commissions in the admin fee goes to Millionaire Mentors Alliance to keep the system running.
When you first buy in you will pay your sponsor via a cashiers check and the people that you recruit and will do the same to you.
This system uses what is called a “1 up” commission structure. After you buy into the program at one of the different levels, you will be able to recruit others in and earn commissions. However, the first person that you recruit in… That sale will not go to you. Instead, that sale will be passed up to your sponsor, which as I said is the person that recruited you into the business.
After that you will be able to keep all of your sales for yourself.
These types of systems are a bomber in the beginning but you have to realize that everyone that you recruit in will be doing the same thing… They will all be passing their first sale up to you.
Is This A MLM?
They really be on the point that this is not a MLM… However I would say that the compensation plan is very similar to one. I know this doesn’t make much sense, but the way I see these “1 up” systems that basically like a MLM that isn’t technically a MLM.
There aren’t really multiple levels within the compensation plan, however there are sales getting passed up to you that, in a way, or getting passed up to you from multiple levels deep.
You Only Make The Sales You Are Qualified For
One thing that you should know about this place is that you only get paid as high as the level you are a part of. What I mean by this is that if you buy in at the Bronze Package level for only $500 and you recruit someone in that buys and at the Elite Package level for $25,000, you only get paid $500 in commissions. In order to get paid the $25,000 you would have had to be an Elite Package level member or higher.
As I mentioned earlier, when you buy in you will get courses in cryptocurrency as well as online marketing training, self-improvement training and more. In addition to this, you also get your “turn-key” business as they call it.
You will get the following so that you can recruit people in and hopefully earn commissions…
Your personal website will be the same as the official Millionaire Mentors Alliance website. When you are recruiting people in you will send them to this website and when they buy in you will get credit for that.
You will send them to your website, they will watch the video presentation about how awesome and easy it is to make money with Millionaire Mentors Alliance and then they will buy in if they feel like it.
This system also has a built-in autoresponder. The autoresponder will give you the ability to send out automated emails to all of your leads or recruits in your downline at once. Autoresponder is are very important when it comes to pretty much any online business, so this is nice to see and definitely helpful.
They also provide tracking software so that you can see how everything is going and make necessary adjustments to your strategies.
You probably already know, because you have looked into Millionaire Mentors Alliance, but they have a call center that helps close sales.
Super easy right? Well I can guarantee you it is much more difficult than it may seem.
In the one video presentation they tell you that you could be earning $10,500 a month and they claim that this is a conservative estimate, you could really be earning much more than that. All you do is advertise the system, people join, and you make tons of money… Super easy.
However, it is not that easy and if you buy in believing that it will be this easy than you are in for a rude awakening. I see high ticket systems like this all the time and they are very difficult to make money with.
Just as you are now, people are hesitant to buy into systems like this. It is going to be a hard sell for sure.
The answer is NO, and if anyone tells you otherwise they are a liar.
The cheapest package, which is the bronze package, sells for $500 and the most expensive package, which is the Empire package, sells for $50,000. And of course that is not including the admin fees that you would also have to pay if you are buying in.
These product packages aren’t even worth a fraction of what they are being sold for. The reason they are so expensive is because the prices are jacked up for the sake of members being able to resell them and earn massive commissions. The business opportunity is what is really being sold here and that is why the prices are inflated so much… To make the business opportunity sound more appealing. I mean who wouldn’t want to earn $50,000 on a single sale? I sure would.
The bottom line is that the underlying value for these packages is not even close to the prices.
Still thinking about joining this place? Well let me tell you that is a dangerous game. The FTC has been on a roll lately and has been shutting down high ticket programs similar to this, such as MOBE and Digital Altitude.
Just think about buying into this place for thousands of dollars in then it getting shut down… With no way for you to recoup your money. Now that would suck in that isn’t out of the question. It is definitely something that I could see becoming a reality if this starts to really grow in popularity.
Usually the FTC doesn’t step in until programs like this are widespread. Whenever they are just starting out the FTC doesn’t have time to crack down on them. They are too busy with more important things.
Something Else Worth Mentioning…Strange
Something else that I think is worth bringing to your attention is this Facebook post I found from Millionaire Mentors Alliance. When MOBE got shut down they were offering past MOBE members a free spot near the level they were at in MOBE…
Why would they be doing this? I am guessing that the creators of this program have ties to MOBE. They were probably involved.
But anyways… I’m not sure if this offer is still going on or not.
You can definitely make money with systems like this, but is it really worth it?
Not only is it pretty risky to get involved in something like this, but it is also much more difficult than it seems. I have been involved in online marketing since 2015 and I can guarantee you that selling people on a business opportunity like this is going to be quite a challenge. I’m not saying it can’t be done… I’m just saying that it will be difficult… Very difficult.
And besides all that, in opportunity like this is just out of the question for many people out there that are on a budget. For something like this you have to be willing to spend tons of money beforehand with the hopes and dreams of recouping that money. Remember how I said you have to buy into the product package level before you can receive commissions for that level? This is what I am talking about. If you want to receive commissions of $50,000 when people buy into the elite level, you will first have to spend $50,000 plus the administrative fee to buy into that level.
A Much More Afforable Option… And Legitimate
If you are looking for an affordable and legitimate way to make money online, I would suggest taking a look at this program. This is where I got started back when I first started looking for ways to make money online in 2015 and I have been a member ever since. It is 100x more affordable and took me from earning $0 to over $6000 a month, which goes to show that it does work.
Questions or comments? Please leave them below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Super Affiliate Success System claims to be able to force-feed you 4 to 6 checks per month directly into your bank account. It is also said to be able to churn out commissions of up to $5500 on complete autopilot. But what is the catch to all of this? It seems that there is always a catch doesn’t it? Is this program even legitimate or is Super Affiliate Success System a scam that you should be avoiding?
While you can make money with this system there are a few very important things that you should know before hand… Things that they do not tell you. In this review I’ll be going over what you need to know as well as exposing some of the lies they tell you. The truth is that the system is not the super amazing system that is said to be in that there is a big catch to it all.
Super Affiliate Success System (at superaffiliatesuccesssystem.com) has the typical get-rich-quick scheme feel to it. When you land on the website you are presented with a video that portrays the system at some magical fairytale system that runs on autopilot with little to no work, cranking in the commissions.
Of course you are told that you are “extremely lucky” to be on the page in that you will get over $2000 in bonuses just for watching the video. I don’t remember exactly what the spokeswoman said in the video but I believe she tells you that you are one of the lucky few to be selected for this amazing system. But wait…Oh No,… If you don’t act now this video could be down in 5 to 10 minutes…
This is all just what you call false scarcity, which is a marketing tactic used to get people to buy in as fast as possible. But none of it is true. This video will not be down in 5 to 10 minutes and you will go to come back in a week or even a month it will still be there.
One thing that I found rather humorous is that she tells you what you are hearing “cannot leave this webpage”. She says that you are not allowed to share this info with anyone and it has to remain a secret. The reason this is funny is because this website is open to the public. It is not part of the dark web and anyone can go to it to watch this video presentation and buy into the opportunity.
“Tanya Christensen” a sufficiently the spokeswoman that is presenting the video, but who knows if this woman really exists or not. During the video presentation whenever she introduced herself there is a picture shown that you can see below. I ran a reverse Google image search for this picture and found that it is used all over the place online, on many different websites. What this more than likely means is that the image is a stock photo that anyone can buy and use online. In other words… It is NOT Tanya Christensen…
This is one of the first major red flags because it is something that I can prove to you is a lie.
Buy anyways, let’s talk about the system here.
You are told that this system can generate you $1000, $2000, $3500, or even $5500 commissions on autopilot and that it was created by a guy named Misha who supposedly gave the system to her.
And of course, like every make money online system out there, this is a “simple done for you system”.
Really the Super Affiliate Success System is just part of a sales funnel to get you to buy into the Super Affiliate Network, which is a high ticket affiliate training/mentorship program created by a guy named Misha Wilson.
The program consists of different membership levels/products it is one of the systems that you buy into to make money online and then end up making money online by trying to get letters to buy into it as well.
When you join your provided with online marketing training and tools. Additionally you are set up with “done for you” sales pages, email templates, lead capture pages, etc. so that you can promote the system to other people. So what you will be doing is advertising Super Affiliate Network as a way to make money online and that sending people to the sales page. When they buy in you earn commissions.
What they don’t tell you is the true cost of the system. The basic membership is only $47 a month and sometimes they have one dollar trials offers going on that you can sign up through. However… This is only for the basic membership. There are multiple other membership going up to Pro Membership which costs $2497…
And there is more than just of this. The most expensive product within the Super Affiliate Network is the Maui Intensive Mentoring, which costs $12,497. This is the tippy top of the product selection. With this product you will get a ticket for a four day mentoring session from Mischa himself.
There is a reason to upgrade through the memberships. Of course each higher-priced membership includes more training and more resources for success than the last. But there is another reason why you are going to pretty much have to upgrade and purchase more expensive products.
The reason is because in order to earn commissions selling these products you first have to buy them yourself. So if you buy in at the Basic Membership level then you are only going to be able to earn commissions when others buy in at the Basic Membership level, which really won’t give you the ability to earn all that much because it is only $47 per month.
If you want to earn big commissions like those talked about in the Super Affiliate Success System sales funnel, then you’re going to have to buy the more expensive products. If you want to have the ability to earn $5500 commissions then your first going to have to spend more than this. This is how other programs like MOBE and Legendary Marketer work as well.
One thing that I think is worth mentioning and you should definitely know is that this is NOT completely done for you. If it were already completely done than what would be the point of having people join and sign up for it? If you’re already completely done you would need anyone to join. The system would run on its own. But the reality is that this is not all completely done for you and it will take work on your part.
There are many done-for-you components to the system, such as the premade sales pages that I mentioned. Basically the system is set up so that you can make money with it but in order to make money with it you first have to send people into the system. You are the one that has to go out and advertise the opportunity, collect leads, and send them to the sales pages. Now this might sound easy. It might sound like 99% of the work is done for you, but this is probably one of the most difficult parts of online marketing.
Traffic generation is the lifeblood of online business and it is much easier said than done. I have been making money in the online space since 2015 and I can take this from personal experience. I have experience with SEO, Facebook advertising, Bing advertising, etc. and know how it is.
I would call Super Affiliate Success System a scam at least to some extent. The fact of the matter is that the opportunity at hand is misrepresented as being much better than it really is. You are told all the good and not told anything about the money that you will have to spend if you actually want to be able to earn large commissions.
I am not a fan of these types of high ticket systems in particular. I find that they sucker many people in and then force them into upsells and to promote the same system to others. Sure… you can apply what you are given to any online business but the focus is on getting members to promote the system.
Besides this, Super Affiliate Network is also out of the budget range of most people. It is just too darn expensive to get started with.
My recommendation for beginners looking to make money online would be programs like Wealthy Affiliate, which is 100x more affordable. I actually started out with the Wealthy Affiliate training program back in 2015 and am making a living working online now, which goes to prove that it does work. Its a great program for beginners in particular but is also a good choice for intermediate level online marketers. I’m not going to get into it here, but if you want to learn more you can read my review by clicking the button below…
Feel free to leave any comments, questions, or concerns below and I will get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough it is presented as a way to make money online by Chris and Susan. But what is it really and is this program worth your time and money? There are so many scams out there online nowadays that it can be hard to differentiate what is legitimate and what is not. Is Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough a scam they should be avoiding or is this the real deal?
In this review I’ll be breaking down the program for you and telling you what you need to know. I would strongly suggest reading over my review here before moving forward and buying in or not. What do I say this? Well because some of the information given is pretty misleading and if you buy in after reading this alone you are likely going to be disappointed, at least somewhat.
Okay, so Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough was created by Chris and Susan Beesley like I said, but what is it really?
It is presented as an opportunity to make good money and be able to retire with enough wealth to go around traveling, living a luxurious life, and really just enjoying the golden years. Or at least that’s how they portray this opportunity. There are probably multiple different sales pages for this program but the one I came across was filled with Chris and Susan traveling the world on vacations all over the place.
As for the program itself, they claim that you can earn massive commissions of up to $10,000 per sale with it and that is “done for you”.
They claim to both the management consultants by profession that used to work 10 to 12 hour days, but of course that all changed when they started using this system.
Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough really is just a sales funnel to get people to buy into another program called MOBE, or My Online Business Empire. MOBE is a high ticket digital marketing training program that teaches people to make money online. Members of MOBE are provided with done for you websites and marketing funnels to promote MOBE to other people.
So basically this is one of those programs that people buy into to make money online and then make money online by getting other people to buy into the same program.
MOBE is an all-inclusive type of deal. They provide websites, training, and everything you really need to make money online. It is possible to apply what they give you to any online business but the main focus is on getting members to promote the system. And because they provide you with done for you websites and sales funnels for promoting the system, most members take this path.
Putting This Into Perspective
So where does Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough fit into all of this?
Well as I said, this is just a sales funnel to get people to buy into MOBE. You see Chris and Susan are members of MOBE and are they doing exactly what the training has taught them to do which is recruit in other members. When you buy into the program through their website they earn commissions.
This sort of thing is nothing new to me. MOBE has been around for some time and I have reviewed many different sales funnels that have been created by members trying to recruit other members in. Some recent ones I have reviewed include High Ticket Wealth System and My Home Business Mentors.
One thing that I think it is important to do in this review is go over some of the misleading information that is given out with the purpose of suckering people to buy in. There is a law I could you ever hear, but I’m just going to cover a few things.
1) This Is NOT Completely Done For You
First let me say this… Assistant is NOT a “completely “done for you” system” as they tell you this. While they do provide done for you components of the system, such as sales funnels and email templates, there is work to be done. If you think you’re just going to buy into the system, sit back and earn money, you are sadly mistaken. All of the actual promotion, going out and advertising the system and capturing leads, this is all work that you have to do.
2) This is Is NOT a “small investment”
They lead you to believe that a small investment is going to give you the ability to earn $1250, $3300, and even the $5500 or more in commissions over and over again. However, this is far from the truth. You will have to spend much more money than what you initially have to spend in order to make big commissions like this. But I will get into the real cost of this all soon, so just hold tight.
3) This Is NOT Time Sensitive
They tell you that you pretty much have to buy in right away because they are only accepting a limited number of people into their program, but this is just a marketing tactic that is no truth to it. They are just trying to get you to buy in as soon as possible without second-guessing your decision in the doing additional research.
As I said, MOBE has been around for quite some time and pay her definitely not shutting the doors to anyone. It will take all the money they can get and so will Chris and Susan from recruiting people in through their sales funnel.
I mentioned that you will have to spend much more money than the initial price to actually make good money with MOBE… But what do I mean by this?
Well, MOBE has many different courses, or memberships, within the program. The $49 program that is 21 steps long that you will be buying in is just the beginning. This is basically an introductory course but you will not be able to make much money with it alone.
They tell you that you will be able to make over $10,000 in commissions per sale and you now know that you will be making money by selling MOBE to other people, so it makes sense that in order to make over $10,000 in commissions, you will have to sell a product of MOBE that costs over $10,000.
MOBE is called a high ticket opportunity for a reason. The products within it are extremely expensive but when you resell them you can earn high commissions. Below are the prices of the core products within the program. These are the products you’re going to pretty much have to buy if you want to earn large commissions.
The catch to this all is that in order to make money promoting any of their products you first have to buy them yourself.
If you are new to this all then my review here might be getting a little bit confusing. But in a nutshell the program works like this:
Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough is a sales funnel for MOBE that was created by Chris and Susan. They are members of MOBE and are making money by recruiting other in, which is what the training at MOBE pushes members to do.
When you buy in at $49 you will be provided with the basic introductory course, which does provide good information in definitely does have value, but it does not give you what you need to be able to make large commissions. In order to earn large commissions you will have to buy the more expensive products that MOBE sells, which cost in the thousands of dollars range.
Than what you will do is promote MOBE in a similar way to what Chris and Susan are doing. You will promote the introductory product which is relatively cheap to get members to join. Then after they join they will be pushed into buying the more expensive products just as you were, because of course you have to if you want to make the commissions. When they purchase these more expensive products, this is what you earn the large commissions from their purchases.
they don’t tell you that its going to be super easy and they do provide an income disclaimer
Whether or not this is a scam depends on what your definition of a scam is. Many people would call this a scam but there are others out there who think this is a great opportunity for all. Personally I lean more towards the side of people calling it a scam. While I wouldn’t call it a complete scam because you can make money with it, the program does sort of scam people in the way it lures people in and pushes them into very expensive up sells, all the while getting them to go out and promote it to more people.
That said, I will say that Chris and Susan promote the opportunity in a much more legitimate way than many other promotions I have seen. They do seem to mislead readers a bit, but at least they don’t tell you that is going to be super easy and they do provide an income disclosure that shows most members of MOBE make less than $700 per year. However this statistic isn’t the greatest because most members also quit early on and do not that much effort.
But anyway, join if you want… It is your money and you can do with it what you wish.
Something Else You Might Be Interested In
Something else you may be interested in since you are looking to make money online is the Wealthy Affiliate program. This is the program that I got started with back in 2015 and I currently make a living working online, which goes to show that it does work.
Wealthy Affiliate is also somewhat of an all-inclusive type of deal, they provide tools and training for people to make money online and on the plus side they are WAY more affordable than MOBE. But anyways, you can click the button below to read my review and learn more.

Fortune Builders is a real estate investing education company that provides everything from inexpensive online courses to very expensive one-on-one coaching programs. There are many good things said about this place and it can be very tempting to buy into some of the more expensive educational products that they offer, but is it really worth it? Or is Fortune Builders a scam possibly that is just going to leave you upset and with a bunch less money at the end of the day?
In this review I will be going over what exactly Fortune Builders is, the different type of education that it provides, the prices, complaints and more.
Like I said, it is a real estate investing education company. The company was founded back in 2006 by Than Merril, who is a graduate of Yale University but is probably most well known for being a NFL safety. Merril got involved in real estate and started his own company back in 2004 and after finding success he decided to create this Fortune Builders educational company.
There is a vast array of education that Fortune Builders provides. It attracts people with many different interests related to the real estate industry, such as flipping houses, wholesale, and rehabs.
Prices vary a lot with the different levels of education provided. They offer everything from basic online courses that you can take notes and learn a bit from, to very expensive one-on-one coaching where you are guided through the many processes and given a “system” that you can use to maximize profit and reduce risk.
On their website there really isn’t all that much information on what all educational type products they offer. However, from what I can find they offer the following…
Online Courses: As I mentioned briefly earlier, these are online courses that you can take from home on your end time. There are several different courses and they range in topics from wholesaling to tax liens and deeds.
Seminars: These seem to be short two hour or so events that usually lead to something else, Such as getting you to attend one of the three day workshops.
3-Day Workshops: These three day workshop seem to vary a good bit depending on where you are located and who is teaching them, and because of this they also vary in price a lot. If you already have a business in place then these weekend events can help provide a good polishing touch if you’re looking for some tips/tricks to improve your business, but there is not enough included here if you are a beginner looking to get started. Topics range from commercial building to wholesaling and it seems like pretty much everything is fair game.
Mastery Program: The mastery program is the peak of the education that they provide. This is where you get extensive one-on-one coaching and really are guided through the process of getting your own business up and running. This program includes live weekly training webinar classes, curriculum that is laid out for you, action plans, systems you can use to dissect the business to keep things running more smoothly and efficiently, a back office CRM and a database to manage your business and more.
When it comes to the cost of the different educational products they provide it is really hard to find information. They do not state any prices on their website so to find out the costs associated with the different levels of education I resorted to reading through tons of customer reviews.
And like I said, the prices of these different levels of education seems to vary a lot depending on where you are at and who is putting on the event or providing the training. For example, I know that some people are paying $197 to attend the three-day weekend workshops whereas others are paying $297. Why the difference? Well I don’t really know because they don’t provide any information on this.
And when it comes to the mastery courses is the same deal. Most of what I have found seems to point to the mastery program costing around $10,000 but I have also read reviews about people claiming that it costs up to $30,000, which is a massive difference of course. And then what is really strange as I’ve also read reviews of people talking about products costing in the $2000-$5000 range, which is really strange.
Honestly I don’t know what to tell you when it comes to the cost. They just are not transparent at all with it and it is hard to find good information.
Overall a general consensus on the education provided is pretty good. Most people are very happy with the knowledge and tools provided.… Not really any complaints here.
Where the complaints come into play is with what appear to be deceptive sales tactics. My guess is that the employees of Fortune Builders are making some pretty nice commissions when selling these products. Some of the complaints I’ve read on websites like the Better Business Bureau compare the employees to used car salesmen, that just constantly try to suck every penny out of you.
I also really did not like how they are not transparent with their prices. Because of this you really don’t know if you’re getting a good deal or not when buying in. The prices seem to be all over the place and you have no idea if you’re getting ripped off or not.
There are reviews I have read, such as that below, from people who claim they were suckered into buying more expensive programs because they were told that they were the cheapest option, only to find out later that they were not the cheapest option.
*Note: I would like to point out that overall this company has very good ratings from customers. Sure it has complaints too, but what company doesn’t?
No I do not think that Fortune Builders is a scam in it any way. They do seem to provide a very good education and really help people become successful in the world of real estate investing, which can be very lucrative. Of course whether you are successful or not largely depends on yourself and how much action you take, but as for the education provided… It is about as good as it gets.
If you don’t have an entrepreneurial mindset with plenty of self motivation and desire to do this then you are not going to succeed, no matter how much education you get.
My only complaint, and the majority of complaints, comes from the somewhat deceptive sales tactics used to get people to buy into the expensive mastery program. So if you are going to get involved be aware of this and really make sure that you ask every question possible to ensure you are getting a good deal before actually giving them your credit card.

High Ticket Wealth System is a system being promoted by a guy named Saj P who claims that you can make an extra $50,000 per month with it. But is all this really true? After all it seems like most of the systems out there that make massive income claims like this turn out to be nothing more than scams. But is this the real deal?
As you will see my review this is not nearly as good as it seems to be. While you definitely can make money with it, there are some serious downsides in the amount of people that actually do make $50,000 per month with this is very very very few. There are a lot more people out there that lose money with this system than make 50,000 per month with it, that’s for darn sure.
This “High Ticket Wealth System” is really nothing more than a final to get people to buy into MOBE, or My Online Business Empire. MOBE is what Saj is making all his money with. He makes money by promoting MOBE when others buy into it, which is why you see funnels for MOBE all the time… for example My Hidden Pages & Home Based Wealth System.
What the heck is MOBE? In a nutshell it is a high ticket digital marketing training program. It provides digital marketing training and holes so that people can make money online. Much of what it provides is “done for you”. For example it provides landing pages, follow-up emails, sales funnels, products that you can promote, etc.
The focus of MOBE is to get members to promote MOBE to other people. Just like Saj P is doing here, you will be pushed to make money promoting MOBE products. It is a vicious cycle where people buy and looking to make money online and then they are pushed to make money online by selling make money online products, which is similar to many other programs out there such as Jeff’s 6 Figure Online Business and Legendary Marketer.
Since you will be pushed to promote the system much of the work will be done for you, but not everything, which is why they provide training. The training is mostly on how to promote MOBE. You have the premade sales funnel, you have the products to promote, you even have a phone sales team working at MOBE that will follow up with your leads… What you have to do is generate leads.
The short answer is no it is not. Driving traffic to an offer online is much easier said than done. Traffic is the lifeblood of every online business, there are many different ways to generate traffic online but none of them are “easy”. This is something that I have come to learn over the years working online. Everyone is looking for a super easy way to drive laser targeted traffic to their offers but it all takes work.
When you’re buying into MOBE you are not told anything about the real cost of the program. Sure you can buy in at only $49 but this is just the beginning of it. If you want any chance of making money with this you will have to pay much much more than this.
You know how Saj talks about being able to make $1250, $3330, $5500, and $10,000 per sale? Well how do you think you are making these massive commissions? You are going to be promoting MOBE products and to make commissions this high the products would have to cost more than this correct?
This is true and this is what they do not tell you. MOBE products are called “high ticket” products because they insanely high prices, mostly for the sake of earning massive commissions, or at least that is how I see it. Below you can see the prices of their “core” products.
And don’t think that you can get away with promoting these big products without buying them. MOBE uses a licensing rights business model which requires you to first purchase the product before you can resell it and earn massive commissions. So if you want to earn $10,000 commissions then you are going to have to by a product that is priced much higher than $10,000.
Many people do not recoup their initial investments in programs like this.
Well first of all, they are almost always promoted in a very misleading manner. Everyone is trying to recruit in new members to make money off of them and this often leads to recruitment by deceptive means, meaning that they will only tell you the good stuff about the program and leave out all the bad stuff. I would be fine with that if they told you straight up that you are going to be pushed into buying high ticket products and then reselling them to other people, but no one ever told you this stuff.
I actually came across this program when landing on a page where Saj P claims to reveal an “underground marketing formula”. Right off the bat this is misleading because there is nothing “underground” about this whole thing. This program has been around for quite a while and is fairly well known. This is an all that misleading, but is just an example of something I just saw it recently.
Second of all, programs like this are just out of the budget of many people looking to make money online. Many people just don’t have the money to be buying really expensive products like this, what you have to do before you can sell them and make money doing so.
Thirdly… I don’t like how it pushes people to promote the system. Sure… you can apply the training and tools that are provided to you with MOBE to any online business but it is no secret that this program pushes you to recruit in new members… that is the overwhelming focus of it all.
Not only do I think that this sort of program is rather unethical, but I also see it as fairly risky especially for beginners who do not really know what they’re getting themselves into.
Digital Experts Academy is a program that you can supposedly achieve financial freedom with by creating your own online business. But what is this program really? Is there more than meets the eye? Is Digital Experts Academy a scam that you should be concerned about? Or is this the real deal?
In this review I’ll be giving you my take on what is going on here. There is more than meets the eye and this doesn’t necessarily mean good things. I am not affiliated with this program at all so I won’t be holding back in this review. There are some things I am very much against and I’ll be speaking my mind on them.
Digital Experts Academy is a high-ticket online business training program that was created by Stuart Ross and Jay Kubassek. In a nutshell, this program provides training, tools, mentorship, etc for those looking to make money online with their own business/website. There are several different levels of membership and as you will see they can get very expensive.
But before I get into all of this, one thing you should know is that Stuart and Jay aren’t just the creators of this. They also are the creators of a program called Six Figure Mentors, which I looked into in my The Laptop Entrepreneurs review. This is important to know because the 2 different programs are tied together as you will see in a minute.
Six Figure Mentors is the same type of deal. It is an online business training program that provides tools and training for making money online. They provide good training and good tools, but one complaint that I have as well as many others that have tried out this program is that they push members to promote their products. Similarly to MOBE, Legendary Marketer, and other online marketing training programs, they push members to make money by promoting their memberships. So what happens is many people buy in to make money online and then they end up making money online by getting others to buy in.
The way I see it DEA is like an add-on to the SFM program. Its like the high-ticket add-on. And by high ticket I mean really expensive.
When, or I should say “If”, you buy into DEA you will get a bunch of training that goes along with it. You will get training on Youtube marketing, SEO, FB advertising, branding, and a plethora of other important areas of online business. But are the memberships really worth the price?
The cost of the DEA memberships are as follows…
Quite a hefty price tag wouldn’t you say? For what its worth, from what I can see from the outside the programs look like they are pretty good. It seems they provide a heck of a lot and definitely do have real value. But are they really worth these high prices?
In the world of digital products like these, it is very difficult to put a price on them. How much value do products like this really provide? I mean… I guess if you buy in and go on to make good money with what you were provided and taught then you could say that everything was worth a heck of a lot, but if you don’t then the opposite is true.
So how much is training, tools and mentorship really worth?
What I find happens often with programs of this nature is that they slap on extremely high ticket prices that are in my opinion inflated. They cost way more than the value that they provide. And there is a reason for this…. which is big commissions.
From what I see here it seems that SFM is following the path of MOBE and other high ticket programs. It is hard to say for sure, but the prices seem to be a very overvalued and judging from my experience in this industry and from what I know about other similar programs I am guessing this is mostly for the sake of earning big commissions.
You may have a different opinion than me on this and if you do this is something I would love to hear. I am not saying that DEA doesn’t provide a value doesn’t provide value. I’m just having a hard time seeing the value equaling the extremely hefty price tags that come with the different membership levels.
Okay, let me summarize everything that I’ve been saying here. The way I see it DEA (Digital Experts Academy) is an extension of SFM (Six Figure Mentors). SFM pushes members to go out and promote SFM to others in order to make money, and DEA is a high ticket extension onto this. With DEA members are able to sell these extremely high ticketed products and earn large commissions doing so.
Both DEA and SFM are the same type of programs. They both provide tools and training along with mentor ship for people looking to make money online. It suggested that DEA is the higher-priced and more advanced version, that members would likely get into after already having one of the advanced memberships of SFM.
Personally I am not a fan of programs that push members to promote the same darn program nor am I a fan of programs that sell extremely expensive products for what seems to be the purpose of earning money rather than providing value.
Now of course, like I said, I have not actually bought into DEA so I do not have first-hand experience with testing everything out. This review is based on what I know about SFM and what I have seen in the online marketing world having been involved since 2015.
You are welcome to DEA for yourself. I am not going to tell you to do this or tell you not to do this. The decision is up to you. However, I will not be buying into it personally.
Maybe I am wrong for writing this review without having tried out this program for myself, but there is no way in heck I am going to spend a minimum of $2500 just to test something out that I feel isn’t going to be worth it.
Anyways, hope you enjoyed my review and I hope you take something good away from. Before you go, if buying extremely expensive high ticket products is not for you then I would suggest checking out how I make a living online. I wrote this guide here where I go over what I do to make money online, how it all works, and what I consider the best way for beginners to get started is.
