Is Real Wealth Strategist a Scam? – My Opinion Of It

Real Wealth StrategistMatt Badiali’s Real Wealth Strategist program is promoted all over online as an amazing opportunity that can make you tons of money. But is this really the case? What is this and how will you benefit from it? Or is Real Wealth Strategist a scam that is just going to leave you discouraged and frustrated at the end of the day? All of these questions are important and need to be answered beforehand.

There is a lot of misinformation out there so in this review I’m going to take a rational down to earth approach. If you just watched or read a sales pitch for this product then chances are you were given a better picture than what it really is.

Real Wealth Strategist Review

What is Real Wealth Strategist? I’ve noticed some confusion as to what this is. The reason for this is more than likely the misleading sales pitches that are out there trying to suck people in. For example I recently reviewed “Freedom Checks” which is what this program was being marketed under that had an extremely misleading sales pitch. After watching the sales video for this it made you think that you could somehow get free checks in the mail… which was not even close to being true.

But anyways… Real Wealth Strategist is basically an advisory newsletter that was created by Matt Badiali. Matt is an investor and when you buy a subscription to this service you get to follow his lead and invest in stocks that he picks and believes are going to make massive gains. I’ll go into more detail on what all you get with this soon. First however I think its important to go into a little more detail on Matt Badiali himself.

Who Is Matt Badiali?

Matt Badiali is an expert in natural resources investments. Why is he an expert? Well because he is a geologist with over 20 years experience in the industry. He holds a B.S. from Penn State University in Earth Sciences and a Master of Geology from Florida Atlantic University.

Although some of the over-the-top sales pitches you hear may seem like this is all a fraud, this guy is experienced and knows what he is doing.

Before being hired by Banyan Hill, which is the publisher of Real Wealth Strategist, he had a similar role working for Stansberry Research where he was chief editor of a report on investments in energy, natural resources etc. So he has been doing this a while.

What You Get With Real Wealth Strategist

Model Portfolio

Here you get to see Matt’s portfolio and everything that he is buying or waiting to buy as well as what he is selling and when. You will know what and when to buy/sell. He says that he typically only recommends about 12 stocks per year but this is subject to change.

Weekly Updates

You will get weekly updates on the status of your investments, whats going on in the industry, etc.

Trade Alerts

You will be alerted via your email when its time to make a trade. You will also get instructions on what exactly you have to do to make these trades.

Monthly Newsletter

Here is where you get a lot of information. Every month Matt sends out a newsletter where he talks about a new investment he is looking into. He is known to do a lot of research on these so you can expect a good bit of info here.

Website Members Area Access

You will be able to log into the members area to go over anything you missed or to catch up.

Customer Service Team

They claim that a customer service representative will walk you through anything you need help with. However, I heard this is pretty much a joke.

Why So Many Complaints?

Real Wealth Strategist is not a scam. However there are a fair number of legitimate complaints out there from people claiming that it is all a scam.

The reason for this is because of the misleading sales tactics that Real Wealth Strategist is promoted with which reminds me of The Altucher Report and the misleading information being spewed out there.. There are several popular sales funnels for this products, “Freedom Checks”,which I mentioned earlier and “This Magic Metal”.

The Freedom Checks is WAY overly hyped up and misleading. I said it earlier but I’ll say it again…. What you are led to believe is that if you are a US citizen you can get what he calls “freedom checks” in the mail for free. However it is nothing like he claims. The sales presentation for this funnel was also full of lies such as fake income claims and more, which I went over in my review of Freedom Checks.

The other example, “This Magic Metal”, has a sales presentation where Matt talks about some “magic” metal and basically hypes everything up like its the investment of the millennium. And of course if you buy into Real Wealth Strategist you are going to find out what exactly this magic metal is.

Both of these are just sales funnels to get people to buy into Real Wealth Strategist which you know is and advisory newsletter and nothing like what the sales pitches lead you to believe.

Why not be realistic? 

This is a good question… why don’t they just sell people on Real Wealth Strategist with a more realistic and less salesy approach? The product isn’t anything horrible so why market it like many scam products are marketed?

I think that most of the complaints out there about Real Wealth Strategist come from people buying in without knowing what they are really buying into due to the misleading sales tactics. So just know what you are getting into beforehand.

Profits Are Not Guaranteed

I just want to make it clear that profits are not guaranteed with this. I know the misleading sales presentations might make you believe that they are but this isn’t true.

Matt does have a good track record and does seem to pick good stocks that yield a nice return, however, there are member reviews I’ve read that show losing stock advice that Matt has given as well.

Conclusion on Real Wealth Strategist

Real Wealth Strategist is not a scam but its also not for everyone that might think its for them. The reason for this is, as I keep reiterating, that the sales pitches are misleading and make people think it is program that guarantees them they will become rich.

Just know what you are getting yourself into before you buy in. If you are thinking about buying a subscription after reading this I would still suggest you do some more research. Look for member reviews. There are a lot out there that I’ve read which are very insightful.
