“Your income is directly related to your philosophy, NOT the economy.” – Jim Rohn What we liked:
- Cheap (small, one time fee) front end products are packed with value
- The focus isn’t ENTIRELY on just promoting Legendary Marketer
- Clear and easy-to-use affiliate backend
- $30 per month Legendary Marketer s Club has great, constantly updating content
- Commission rates are different depending on if you pay to become a PRO affiliate
- Some products are hard to find/buy in the ecosystem if you decide to buy them after a webinar
- Each program only covers a small part of the overall skills necessary to run a profitable online business
- No guarantee you’ll be accepted into the Legendary Marketer affiliate program
What is Legendary Marketer?The world of Legendary Marketer is an entire ecosystem of products developed by David Sharpe, who claims to have done over $250 million in online sales in his career. The product suite consists of low, medium, and high-ticket products: courses, coaching programs, systems, events and masterminds. Even a 15 day challenge that you can get access to for free! Most are unlocked by paying a one-time fee, while a few are monthly memberships. All of them promise to help you make money online through affiliate marketing. Later in this review, we’ll discuss whether you should purchase any of the one-time Legendary Marketer products, or become a monthly member.
Is Affiliate Marketing Easy?In a word: no. While every affiliate program promises you can easily make money online by throwing up some ads, sending some emails, and driving traffic to a landing page, it’s not really that simple. Online marketing, especially as an affiliate, is far more complicated than clicking a few buttons and collecting affiliate commissions. No matter how well the opportunity is presented. Not to mention you spend most of your time selling low-ticket products, with the occasional customer upgrading to a high-ticket option. But what if you could skip all that? Skip the headache of selling cheap front end products, building complex sales funnels, and messing with paid traffic? What if instead, you could sell a high ticket product right out the gate? And what if the customer paid you month after month? And what if, instead of settling for a 10-50% affiliate commission, your profit margins were 90% or higher? This is what I do to bring in over $50,000 per month, and in my opinion, it’s the best way to build a successful online business. Check out this video for all the details. Still curious about Legendary Marketer though? Read on…
Who is David Sharpe?Look, it’s easy to pick on anyone who came out of the dark days of MLM. David Sharpe is one of those people. An alum of Empower Network, it would be easy to write off David Sharpe and Legendary Marketer as a scam. But in all honesty, I was pretty surprised. David has a pretty clean reputation, even if at one time he was part of the seedy underworld of internet marketing. Plus, he has a great zero to hero story, battling drug addiction and homelessness in his teens to becoming a “self-made” success and famous marketer today. Even though Empower Network and most of its affiliates got burned when that company went down, I wouldn’t throw the Legendary Marketer products in the same category by any means. For an affiliate program, I was impressed! It’s less of a shady business opportunity and more of a real training system.
How does Legendary Marketer Work?At its core, the Legendary Marketer ecosystem is one gigantic sales funnel (and an impressive one at that). You first become a member by purchasing a front end product for a small one time fee of $1-2. Then, you escalate through the company’s value ladder. Their free 15-day Online Business Builder Challenge is designed to make you a more active user of their product. Then, once you’re hooked, you begin ascending further up the funnel. The training itself is focused on internet marketing in general, with a specific focus on affiliate marketing. And a bit of a spoiler alert: one of the best ways to make money online with Legendary Marketer is to become an affiliate…using the training to convince other people to join Legendary Marketer. Normally, this approach turns me off. But because in this case, the product is actually good, I’m less offended by this blatant money grab.
What’s Inside Legendary Marketer?Like I mentioned earlier in this Legendary Marketer review, there is a whole host of products available for you to buy. Some of the cheaper ones are simple PDFs, but most offerings involve some kind of video training. At the high end, there’s obviously one on one mentoring and coaching. Let’s go through them one by one.
Insider’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing – Legendary Marketer eBookLike the title implies, this is an ebook about affiliate marketing. Considering it costs $1.99, I was pretty skeptical. That’s one step up from free, and I expected the contents to reflect that. Nothing but fluff you could find online. Boy, was I wrong. For less than $2, you get a value-packed primer on the affiliate marketing industry and the business opportunity around promoting Legendary Marketer.
Copywriter’s PlaybookI work with an amazing copywriter, so when I saw an entire copywriting course for $1, it definitely raised an eyebrow. But again, Legendary Marketer delivers. I highly doubt you’ll be writing million-dollar ad copy after this course, but David definitely provides value in this 8-module video course. You’ll get a good understanding of how to write copy that turns strangers into customers, and considering copy is an invaluable skill for all marketing, this course is a dollar well spent.
15-Second Free LeadsNow this is interesting for sure. TikTok is taking the world by storm, and the ability to get in on the ground floor of a new social media platform is huge. I still remember the early days of Facebook ads, when you could spent $1 and make $10 back. Those days are long gone, but this course (also a $1 one time fee) helps you capitalize on the next wave. Because of TikTok’s unique algorithm, you don’t need to spend months or years creating perfectly curated content and building an audience. TikTok allows you to quickly gain traction and draw new people to you. It basically serves as a lead source that isn’t paid traffic (always nice to save some cash). I have to do more research, but given how good the other two products are at this price, may as well throw a buck at this one and see what happens.
15-Day Online Business Builder ChallengeHere’s where things start to get intense. If you thought a $1 or $2 book or course was good value, imagine a free two-week course that includes personalized coaching. That’s what you get with the 15 day online business builder challenge. Like the name implies, the challenge has 15 days of lessons to help you with the building blocks of an online business. Once you get started, you’ll get connected with a “business advisor”. Now, don’t get too excited. Your advisor is most likely a sales rep or former student who gets paid to upgrade you to one of the more expensive items Legendary Marketer offers. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Like I said earlier, the products are good. And this Legendary Marketer review isn’t meant to push you one way or another. It’s really just to lay out the facts, so you can make an informed decision. So if you want to keep moving up through the Legendary Marketer funnel, the 15 day business builder challenge is the logical next step. If you purchase one of the 3 front end products we previously discussed, you get the online business builder challenge for free. Or, you can buy it standalone for $7 one time if you want. Plenty of 0ptions. But maybe you want to just skip all the playing around, and just jump into an all in one mentoring program that includes real one on one coaching without having to go through a million upsells. If that’s more your game, click here to get all the details.
Legendary Marketers ClubOnce you graduate from the 15 day business builder challenge, you’ll likely get upsold into the Legendary Marketers Club. This is a monthly membership product. So instead of paying a one time fee, you’ll be paying about $30 per month. Now, I know we’re all up to our eyeballs in monthly subscriptions, so the last thing you probably need is another one. But the Marketer s Club might just be enough to boot out 2 of the 5 streaming services you’re holding onto. You’ll get exclusive interviews with 6 and 7 figure students, along with other successful entrepreneurs and marketers. You’ll get to see private trainings on specific online marketing topics, like building a massive audience on YouTube, and using stories to sell. Plus, you get weekly live training webinars (not the “free masterclass -> buy my course” types), and as a member of the Marketer s Club, you get access to all the replays.
Traffic Rolodex BundleThe lifeblood of any affiliate business is traffic. If you don’t have a continuous flow of new prospects coming into your funnel, joining your email list, and clicking your affiliate links, you’re dead in the water. Legendary Marketer offers two solutions to this problem. The first is the Traffic Rolodex Bundle. Priced at $247, this product is a primer on all the main sources of paid traffic “legendary marketers” use to build their businesses and passive income streams. The Rolodex has 8 modules covering:
- Google AdWords
- Facebook Ads
- Google Display Network (GDN)
- Instagram Ads
- Landing Pages
- Native Ads
- Twitter Ads
Traffic UniversityAfter purchasing the Rolodex, you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade to Traffic University. This is a huge step up from the previous traffic course, and will cost you $1,497. Legendary Marketer boasts that Traffic University isn’t simply a course, but rather a suite of 9 different courses diving deep into 9 different traffic sources. Instead of teaching the course themselves, Legendary Marketer teamed up with AdSkills. The company is well regarded as one of the top authorities on paid traffic. Normally, these courses would cost you $5,000 if you bought them directly from AdSkills. But since you’re buying them from Legendary Marketer instead, you get a special discount (the $1,497 price point I mentioned above).
Business BlueprintsOk, here’s where we get into more of the high-ticket offerings. On the second day of the 15 Day Challenge, David Sharpe explains what he believes are the four best high-ticket business models: affiliate marketing, digital products, events & masterminds, and coaching & consulting. Naturally, he and your business advisor will then try to get you to purchase a more expensive product dedicated to one of these areas:
- Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint
- Digital Products Business Blueprint
- Coaching and Consulting Business Blueprint
- Events and Masterminds Business Blueprint
