Jamie Lewis coaching?

by 177 replies
Did anyone sign up with "IM With Jamie", his coaching program? In the sales video and sales letter he is "guaranteeing" you will make money with his coaching and that he will do one-on-one with you for $197. a month.

Wondering if this is really true, or do you get a bunch of videos and you're more or less on your own? Or get an assistant--read "outsourcer"--to "help" who knows no more than you do. So many "coaches" make promises and guarantees, and I fell for a few of them, but they never really help you until you actually make money. Most go over the same re-hashed stuff about buying a domain name, getting hosting, etc., etc. I know some people need this, but most coaches leave you hanging after you do all this and then say "Now 'drive traffic' and you'll make money," or some such. I know we need traffic, but what exactly to focus on step by step is what I've been looking for. Maybe it's just me and I'm missing something.

The last one I signed up with didn't even bother to actually read my email to get an idea of where I am in the IM business. I sent him my links and a question. He replied after a few days, got my name wrong and never answered my question. He just told me to "watch the videos"--you guessed it--how to buy a domain name and get hosting! GRRRRR!! Needless to say, I discontinued the trial promptly. I was really looking for someone to assess where I am, and give suggestions and assignments or practical steps or something--which he claimed he would do in his sales letter.

Is there anyone who actually gives people a start without charging $5000 or more upfront? That is something I cannot do at this point with a daughter who needs medical care, and lots of debt.
Anyway, I didn't hear much about IM With Jamie coaching except the email I got from an affiliate. Anyone know?
Thanks,
Annie

    I've already gotten a refund for the course. After I joined I never got any information about how to sign in or how to start. I figured out how to get to the members area and sent support a note asking about how and where to start. The course was already into week 8 and you can't get to the back webinairs until you have been a member long enough for them to have charged you at least one months fees. I sent 2 requests for help and never got a reply. After a week I asked for a refund, THEN I got a reply saying I should just watch and enjoy the videos. No thanks.

    It is a group of videos with a weekly webinair. Add that to "what I perceive" as poor support and it just isn't for me. Marketers should take heed: we ain't taking any more poor support and junk products. Not saying that is what this is, but just sayin'...

      Hey guys, Its up close & personal via webinar for $1.00 trial for first 7 days.

      In that 7 days come on to the webinar (your choice of Monday, Wednesday or Sunday) and I will personally critique your sites, traffic campaigns and yes, we do follow a curriculum but it is very easy and not just one thing, so if you want to sell domain names, you can do that. If you want your own product on Clickbank, we can do that too. If you don't like my style, cancel.

      You also have the option to do it with us three webinars a week.

      I do contests, and a whole bunch of other really cool stuff. Its very unique.

      Ive done about 30 webinars so far and yes, I work with my students very closely.

      Since ImWithJamie has gotten bigger the webinars are upwards of 3:30 hours long!

      Every webinar I receive around 30 positive testimonials with an average of 80% attendance.

      I have more than 50 success stories and we are just getting started.

      If anyone has any questions, shoot!

      Hi John322,
      I am sorry you had a bad experience but IM with Jamie is the best internet marketing I have ever paid for - he delivers his money's worth and more...Did you attend any live webinar? Even though it may have been on week 8 he covers everything as he goes along and you can ask him anything. I have been involved for about 3 weeks so far and it is great - I have attended 3 live webinars and learned an amazing amount already. He has spent hours going over the allotted time frame answering questions and reviewing others work, answering questions and teaching us all he knows. You may want to reconsider. I have never had any problem with the help desk, in fact my experience has been totally the opposite of what you describe - you may have just hit a bad time or something.

      I recently requested a refund. Its ashamed to as he seemed to know what he was talking about and I have really wanted to learn even if was just to make a little extra money and not the big money he claims. I never got my information he. I searched all my email and my junk and spam folders nothing. I contacted support@champsites multiple times still nothing SO I HAD NO OTHER CHOICE BUT TO ASK FOR A REFUND. I hope he reads this and fixes what ever the problem is. I was hoping to use and learn the system but never got a chance due to customer support not replying to my emails and not sending my user name and password. I clicked lost password and inputed my email and it said it would email it to my box but never did its a 24 week program so you can not afford to loose 8 days or even 16 days no one should have to loose more then 1 days

    I took Jamie's coaching many years ago.

    He's the real deal.

    In fact, I learnt so much from Jamie when I was starting out... the things that I learnt from him have actually paid off now.

    He's a smart guy, and a creative genius.

    I'm appauled at one of the comments above... the Warrior didn't receive his download link right away and wanted an instant refund... that really shows how bad you want success doesn't it... NOT.

    All you have to do is Google "Jamie Lewis" and see what comes up.

    Look at all his sites and the money he's making...

    It wont take long before you realize the guy knows what he's doing... and that you could actually learn a thing or ten..

      It does not matter. This is for my students who have been with me since Day #1. Did you go on the webinar with me? You would have found that my students who have been with me since the beginning are patient, motivated and understanding that you are a noob and I will spend time with you.

      Again, I dont think you experienced IMWithJamie. You need to attend at least one session with me and you would have a different taste in your mouth.

      The challenge is to motivate you guys to take action. C'mon guys. Im working hard here for your BUCK. Do me better.

      Originally Posted by john322 View Post

      Riiiight. Listen, let me know more about your experience with support, who your rep was. Ill fire them if they really did give you the runaround like that.

      Im doing this for the long term.

      I told my students recently, "from now on, I would like to spend our time critiquing your traffic campaigns. Your articles, your forum posts, your PPC campaigns and SEO projects. If you would allow me to critique your projects in front of the class, you get first priority. If you would like me to keep it private, please say so when you send me the URL's in the questions box. In this case, I will verbally explain what you should do without going into that much detail (for your benefit) "

      John, If you want to spend $10,000 elsewhere to study with an outsourced coach, be my guest.

      if anyone does want a very serious program for $1.00 to start, feel free to sign up.

      Whats up!

      Every webinar contains a mix of past lessons, current projects and personal mentoring/FAQ/Critiques.

      Regarding costs, I am pretty "anti cost." Once you know your niche and draw your outline, research, then the costs if any would be Domains, hosting, Autoresponder, TheLinkJuicer, and perhaps an assistant down the road.

      But generally my philosophy is to only spend money once you make it, and a reasonable percentage of your profits. I dont recommend to anyone to spend tons of money in the beginning.

      Here's a bit of my take on PPC:

      29. When using PPC or spending money, make sure you have all your ducks in a row monetization wise. You should have at least FOUR (4) different monetization methods for one (campaign) product when using PPC.

      Hey guys, here's a serious question. Do you want me to take out the replays?

      Not saying I would do that without a vote but since we do 6-10 hours of live instruction every week and the webinars are what people love, maybe the replays are a distraction? It seems every negative review revolves around there being "too many" "too long" or "too old" replay videos included in the members area like this one:

      but he does have great info
      Since the first thing you see on my site is a video with me talking about the weekly meetings, perhaps we should just take out the replays, leaving nothing but the big gold live webinar button and keeping it strictly webinar. Let me know what you think. Just my thoughts.

    So, one marketer thought that my waiting a week for a download link/ help from support seemed reasonable, and I "asked for an instant refund", after waiting 5 days for an answer. So now a week is acceptable for a response from support? I think not, especially during a 1 week trial period.

    Jamie, I bought your product in good faith and all I asked for was an answer to a basic question, which I never got, and had to make a decision to let you charge me for another membership fee when I should have been in a trial period. My trial period was spent hoping for an answer from support. Your support logs will verify that information or I will be glad to provide you with copies of my request(s) for help. I did not ask for a refund "instantly" nor without considerable thought. What good does it do to purchase a program and then refund it?

    Support seems to be a problem for too many marketers these days, if you read many reviews. I truly believe that the marketers think they have great support, but sometimes the facts are simply different. My case is just another example.

      Can you PM me your name (If you want) and who your rep was? It will help to ensure that my other students dont experience that. Its just a shame we didnt have you on any webinars. Thanks for being a customer.

    Jamie Lewis is the REAL DEAL when it comes to INTERNET MARKETING and I will have to agree that the hardest thing to get anyone to do is TAKE ACTION! People will buy product after product and know just about everything there is to know about IM in theory but when it comes to actually putting that knowledge into action they just don't want to do it and if they do it is usually making 1 attempt and then if it doesn't work right away they give up and on to the next product.

    Not only that most people don't treat their IM business like a BUSINESS. To be successful as an internet marketer people have to actually TAKE ACTION 5 to 6 days a week. I have no doubt that IM With Jamie is worth every penny!

    If anyone is on the fence about this, DEFINITELY go with Jamie's stuff - his coaching is one of the best (if not THE best). I'm actually considering doing an additional training webinar with him just because he really cares about his customers and wants to give them the very best - easily one of the best deals I've seen in a long time. You don't get to pick a top marketer's brain for just $197/month. And these are not some 'strategy' sessions (like Kern and Deiss stuff) - they're actionable practical sessions.

      I'm in no way a "stalker" but if I knew Hitesh who has given me such excellent ideas and practices just by being on his mailing list.....I would have been camping out on his doorstep seeing I'm in the Houston area as well! Thanks for your honesty and knowledge Hitesh! Looks like Jamie and you are going to be my new "Best Friends"

      Ever need any Landscaping or building materials I'm your man Hitesh in the Houston area. Only for a limited time though I hope! As I plan on becoming a full time Internet Marketer in the very near future!

      Have a happy 4th of July!

    If you all have not watched the video of Jamie setting up a (if I remember correctly as it has been a while since I have watched it) homeless guy with a profitable affiliate campaign. Then you should definitely try to find it and watch it.

    Jamie is a good guy and on top of that he KNOWS WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT!

    By the way Dan Brock is in my opinion Kelly Felix 2.0 in the sense that he has done an excellent job of BRANDING himself as a LAZY affiliate just like Kelly was able to brand himself as the Rich Jerk previously!

    Not only that Dan Brock is a class act and in my opinion like Jamie delivers AMAZING VALUE for the amount of you spend on his products.

    One more thing if you have not already checked out Jamie Lewis Quit My 9 to 5 if it is still for sale, that is another awesome product for anyone who is wanting to get started using Google Adwords!

    I hope this course of Jamie's is better. I payed $1,000 last year for 10 websites, and so did thousands of other people, same content exactly! Was not worth it.

    He may have a lot of knowledge, but try the free trial carefully, to see if it really is value!
  • Profile picture of the author TimNesbitt
    maidmarion, I am not saying you are wrong in feeling the way you feel as you are certainly entitled to your opinion as much as I am. But what exactly was it that you didn't like or what was it that you didn't feel you learned that would help you become a more profitable internet marketer.

    Once again the reason I ask isn't so much that I am saying your opinion is wrong or right but because overall your statement saying you disliked some of Jamies products was somewhat vague.

    I review a lot of IM products and I know that I have certain things I look for in determining whether I should promote it or not, such as does it deliver on what it promises in the Sales Copy, how easy is the software or system to implement, my own results from following the system exactly as it says that way I can get idea of potentially how well someone I send to the site will do if they put what they learn into action, etc.

    Hi Tim

    More explanation follows.

    The sales copy said that everything would be done for us, all the ebooks written and website completed. This was true, they were all done for us by Jamie's crew.
    Then we were asked to get affiliates to promote the package, and if I had known this from the beginning I wouldn't have bought the package. Why I didn't want to go out and promote it or get other people to promote it, is the ebooks and sales pages were all the same, there must have been thousands of them out there which they sold to all thousands of people, same ebook, same copy! I didn't feel it was original or unique enough to promote, and also the ebooks weren't very good at all! The websites were attractive, but whats the point if millions are promoting the same product. I even tried to do an adwords campaign for it, and it was never accepted, because there were too many copies out there!

    I thought I was getting an original product for me! I was mistaken and disappointed. I know Jamie is very appealing and I liked him also, and he certainly had some information about creating websites etc. on his site to share, but the package he sold me was not good.

    Hopefully he has started to add more value and people will benefit more from what he has to offer. I also hope he is honestly wanting to help people, as well as bringing in the cash!

    Thanks
    Marion

    Jamie is the real deal. I'm fairly new to IM, but I’ve been to several other trial offers. Jamie's webinars are so different. First of all, Jamie actually encourages participation. No, that is too light a way to put it. Jamie specifically designs his webinars so that you CAN and WILL participate. Working through problems together puts information into context. I can't tell you how many "aha" moments I've had so far. I would recommend Jamie to anyone who is looking for an actual mentor and not just a talking head.

      I am a little confused. It says on the sales page $197.00 a month, but below that there is a 7 day, $1.00 free trial, and then $97.00 a month after that.

      Are there two different things for sale here?

      Thanks Glenn

    Hi Jamie, after reading reviews I follow your signature link here on WF, than I watch your presentation video about 1-on-1 coaching. I thought giving a try, I clicked on Button to proceed with payment and what I saw on the bottom of Clickbank page was shocking this is why I came here to ask: ARE YOU REAL Jamie Lewis???

    Because on the bottom page of Clickbank payment I see [affiliate = timbekker.may11]

    I know who Tim Bekker is, I’ve purchased one of his products last year.

    I mean I followed your signature on WF, not a link from my email sent by Tim Bekker.

    This is confusing, I want to deal with REAL DEAL person not an affiliate who will probably ignore my emails. So are you Tim Bekker with pan name Jamie Lewis ??? Or Tim Bekker is one of your pan names ??? I have a funds in place for coaching but I don’t want to pay to non-real person and than never receive support.

      My guess, you probably clicked on one of Tims Links before. even if you DO buy via an affiliate LINK, all that means is that person (tim, for example) get a portion of the sale for referring you. It doesnt mean you'll be working with Tim and Not Jamie.

    I'll be signing up for this tonight actually. I've had such great dealings with Jamie. He's the real deal, and believe it or not he enjoys helping people succeed. I don't know if he get's off on it, lol, but he genuinely does enjoy it, and he's pretty good at it too from what I can see.

    I'll be posting my own review once I check out the first course or two - but so far i'm quite excited to be a part of this!

    eljeffe77,

    I don’t try to investigate or anything like that, what I want is assurance that if I ask questions during 1-on-1 coaching IMWithJamie I will get answers within 24 hours. From my experience in February I've purchased 3-weeks Coaching for $495. There was some pretty cool staff in that Coaching BUT as I learned deeper that Coaching come with the catch - to implement that knowledge required Special Software which I've downloaded but was unable to start. I’m sort of new in IM but I'm not new with PC. I've re-install few times Framework, as well Software, try on few platforms, but for some unknown reason it’s just didn’t start to work! I couldn’t implement what I've learned and paid for. I've emailed to Tech Support but no reply, I've emailed to affiliate who promoted this and he replied to me "please contact ..... for any questions". Unfair to me. After 2 weeks of waiting for reply, I ask for refund

      Rachel, if you're asking him questions during the coaching, you'll get a response within a few minutes usually. He does the coaching LIVE, not just by pre-recorded videos (Though those are available for past webinars).

      I just purchased full access and will be attending my first course early next week, see ya in there perhaps
