Andy Jenkins' "Video Boss"

132 replies
Ok I don't have the product, I can't even buy it yet, but I wanted to be the first to start a thread about it so people can post their thoughts.

I know it's going to be awesome. That Andy guy is really good at a lot of things.

    There was another thread about Video Boss, it seems to have been deleted - not sure what happened.

    I've been impressed with the pre launch videos.

    I am going to buy Video Boss today, just currently looking for the best bonus to go with it.

      I recall the thread you mean.

      I guessed the price would be $1,997 and moaned about it. I guess they didn't want to let the surprise out of the bag

      I am sure it will be a good course but in my opinion it is not worth anything near $1,997.

      Oh yes, if you use the data, do what it says, bla bla bla you can make a fortune. Sure.

      But if you buy a $25 dollar book from Amazon and do what it says then you can make loads of money.

      If it had been pitched at something like $500 to $600 then I would probably have got it.

      There is too much other decent free and low priced stuff around which makes $1,997 a tough one to swallow.

      Marketing and hype and his good track record allow him to try and pimp it at $1,997 even if it is on the high side imho.

      Sam

      P.S. - It's like Kern, Walker, Pagan, Tom, Dick and Harry have all sold at $1,997 so he has to do the same.

      Either because it has been agreed amongst themselves (the price fixing people may find that more than a little interesting) or he doesn't want to appear of less value to the other Club members.

        I would add to the end of that: "to me" . To some it obviously was worth it.

      Believe it or not you can Google "video boss bonus" and take your pick. What I would consider a nice bonus is perhaps something you have already or would not want.

    For 2,000 it seems nuts to buy it. You can find all of this information out on your own, it isn't rocket science. It isn't hard to upload a video to youtube, to get traffic, or to use video editing software. Go to a bookstore and buy a book. Make some videos and get to work. Too many of the people buying these things don't work, they just like to watch the hype and dream and never do anything. You'd do a lot better to spend the hours working with video than watching his lessons and courses for 2,000. Imagine for $2000 you could spend that money on google ads and get traffic to an offer. Do you have an offer of your own? If not video will not help you much anyway. You make money in internet marketing by WORKING. Not dreaming. And not buying into hype. Use common sense.

      Jeff Johnson has quite an impressive bonus.

      Although I have yet to receive another bonus I'm supposed to have got from him for another product I bought a few weeks ago.

      Frank Kern has an interesting bonus but I already know most of his material already and not sure whether it is anything new.

      There are other bonuses about, although most are just PLR junk which I'm not interested in.

      Eben Pagan says he will provide $5,500 worth of bonuses but doesn't say exactly what the bonus is, so I'll probably won't use his link.

      I'm keen to buy today so hopefully I'll see some bonus which will blow me away, but not found it yet.

                I'm also going through the course - it's EXCELLENT material.

                Sure, you could probably get a lot of the info together yourself for free online... same as ANY course.

                But you wouldn't know what was good info and what was junk... you wouldn't know who to trust.

                Is it an essential course for anyone that wants to make video? NO

                Will it help you make much better videos that teach or entertain? YES

            Honestly ya'll, I don't think anyone can give you a honest review except maybe Frank, Trey, and myself. Maybe a couple other of Andy's close partners.

            Obviously we are biased, but we've seen what Andy has put together. In fact, his tech team is the same team that does my stuff. They are wicked bad a$$ too. Great dudes.

            Any reviews of this product from 99% of people would be totally premature. Hence why I'd assume previous threads were deleted.

            Just trying to be honest.

            Just to be fair, I'll delete my signature file that offers by far the very best bonus!

              Jason - I downloaded The Little Boss video and it won't play; something about a codec?? Not sure because the Traffic Boss video plays great. In any case, where I can re-download good copies of the free videos now that they've been taken down? I really love these videos and I want to use them to help me do some videos but the ones I downloaded won't work. Thanks!!

    It's pretty sad really, when I see people having to find a worthwhile bonus, to justify spending the $1,997.

    Pretty sad indeed.

    The course/price should be able to stand on its own two feet.

      I doubt anyone would spend $2k on a course just to get a bonus.

      I'm certainly not, more to do with being greedy for other goodies

      If there were no bonus offers I'd happily take the course on its own.

      The price is somewhat deceptive, because there is an installment option which means folks can get going with just a $388 initial payment.

      Anyone determined should surely be able to recoup the $388 monthly payment over the 6 months, if they put it into action with the improved conversion rates and extra traffic generated.

      Obviously if someone is a newbie or tight on funds then it probably isn't suitable.

      But for folks who aren't using video and have products, lists etc where there is room for improvement in many areas surely the $388 initial investment is well worth it.

      Anyway, each to their own

      Well that's sad indeed, but unfortunately is the way the affiliates have thought their clients to get their products. When a high ticket product like this one is launched it's disgusting seeing the affiliates "fighting" for the same customers. The scenario looks to me as piranhas frenzy

        The intro videos he provided were great, but again that's no surprise, his presentation skill are superb.

        I agree that the price is a little high, but I'm also equally minded that it could be higher.
        You could spend a little and read a book or two on theories to practice that may or may not be effective in your niche, or you can be like me spend a little more for techniques that have been tested, dissected and then directed for easier learning. IMO

        I'll post a review after I purchase it and look it through.

    Thanks for deleting your signature Jason, but you don't have the best bonus. Sorry dude!

    I also can't see why only you, Frank, and Trey can give a honest review? Wouldn't someone with very little knowledge be better equipped to say how good the course is. That is what makes a great course, is a great teacher....someone who can take complex ideas and reduce them to simple and easy to understand steps for people like me...a real anti-techno canuck.

      I did say maybe a few others could. If you were present while Andy was crafting this course then I apologize. I personally sat in on masterminds from the beginning and probably know a lot more then most about the product (which few have even seen).

      Surely you could give a review of his talents and abilities. I don't doubt that.

      Thing is, I know subtle things about Andy's videos that most don't know. Maybe even stuff that Andy himself doesn't even know.

        Of course, that won't stop the legions of fake reviewers from posting their generic, hype-y spiel. Nor will it stop their archenemies, the armchair critics, from posting negative comments about the course without ever seeing the information it has to offer.

        I'm just looking forward to getting started, personally.

    Just bought in. I went with Stompernet's bonus. They're offering 6 months access to Stompernet as well as 51 days of Traffic Geyser Gold.

    Frank Kern's bonus was tempting, as was Jason Moffatt's, but I'm confident that the education AJ is providing should be more than enough to turn me into a video expert.

    For the people saying it costs too much... I've spent the last hour browsing all the different listed videos in the members' section. To get the kind of education that Video Boss provides, I'd have to spend 6 years in 2 different schools locally, as well as about $60,000 in tuition. That's not even counting the cost of textbooks, software, and various other expenses. On top of that, I wouldn't get access to the advanced SEO and Social Media training they provide, and about 50% of the classes in the programs I looked at have absolutely no value to an internet marketer.

    This is hands-down the best deal for anyone looking to get into online video marketing. After getting inspired by the free series, I checked out some videos in one very, very small niche that I market in... Turns out, I can beat them very easily. I managed to find about 5 keywords totaling roughly 20,000 searches per month that already had video results just begging to be knocked out of the listings and replaced with my own. Anyone willing to put this stuff into action and work as they go will make their money back before the end of the 2nd month, for sure.

        Unfortunately, there was nothing I could find that was even close to the Video Boss training. If you're just looking to get your feet wet though, and your primary concern is generating a bit of extra traffic and sales, Sean Donahoe's Video Assassin course is an excellent entry-level product. He's an excellent teacher.

        Now, if you're planning on creating your own video product, or you want to get into advanced video marketing (on par with what the big names of IM do for their launches) I've been unable to find anything worthwhile short of actually pursuing a "legitimate" education on the subject.

      Careful with throwing around the 'best deal' line, especially in the video production niche - value and price varies dramatically across courses, equipment, and those wonderful 'digital assets' you need to make a production happen.

      I produce offline and online video for a living, and when all the hype dies down and you've gone through hours of Andy's video training you'll soon realize that...

      - Stock Footage is Expensive

      - Voice Overs are Expensive

      - Royalty Free Music is Expensive

      - Video Editing Software is Expensive

      - Learning to Produce Great Video Takes Months, Maybe Years Depending on the Individual

      - Writing Killer Script Copy that Converts Takes a Lot of Time to Learn and Write Out.

      - Producing Even a :45 Video Takes Hours (Andy's are 17 minutes)

      - TONS of new verbage, TONS of time investment, TONS of frustration.

      ...NOT for the faint of heart.

      And on top of that?

      $1,997 is nothing compared what you will be spending ONCE you decide to actually start PRODUCING videos.

      I would buy this ONLY if you are serious about FOCUSING on video production hardcore for the next 6-12 months. This is not as easy as Andy makes it look.

      Even then, I would suggest you take a course like Web Video University for $197 (I guess it's $47/mo now) which be more than enough to let you know whether producing high end video is your cup of tea.

      Andy's product might be a good choice for those already involved with video production, not for newbies looking to get their feet wet unless you're ready to dive into a serious commitment.

      Even then, I have trouble placing the focus of this product. "Video Marketing" is way too general... and bottling up a course that covers a bit of everything will cause more issues than serve IMO.

      The rewards, if you stick with producing direct response video, are plentiful (and it's fun, once you put the time in)

      ... but don't let anyone tell you this is easy. Producing GREAT video takes a lot of time and $$$. Andy cleverly disguises that, which is what producing 'video that sells' does - gets you to act on emotion.

      BTW - It was entertaining to read all the emails from marketers hitting this hardcore who don't have a clue how to produce anything other than Camtasia bits (although done right, can be very effective.) ... and I've yet to see someone who took the time to promote a bonus with a VIDEO (duh, since it works so well.)

    Scott,

    I would have to agree with TraderMike2008.

    Andy Jenkins has a creditable background and knows how to produce a great video. Hell I reckon he could be related to Tarantino!...... However.....

    He's given you the greatest tip in his first video by showing us all that even a poorly shot video can get you page one rankings! Now that's a gem!

    Who amongst us is looking for an Academy award in video production AND is willing to shell out $2000 for it? Come on folks, let's be sensible. AVS sells a suite of software which could easily get you going for under $70. There's loads of others ot there.

    Dam! I'm not even an affiliate for any of them.

    I just wanted to chime in real quick...Sure you could save a lot of money buying a book from amazon. But Andy has some serious schooling under his belt that goes way beyond "books"...Also do keep in mind Andy is a marketer, and having someone cut the bullshiz out and teach you the goodies from a SELLING perspective is worth quite a bit if you ask me...

      Pretty basic really - if $2,000 seems like a ton of money - it's not for you. If $2,000 is an off week in IM, you'd be crazy not to get it.

      I've received about 55 bonus offers today, and any "review" of VB won't be brutally honest.

      Here's the funny thing - it's just another classic case of:

      It's really very simple to do a video, then the next thing you know the marketer has convinced you cannot possibly do it without him.

      aka paralysis by analysis.

      I did like the freebies - which are good enough for 99% of us.

      I would bet anything the 90% of those that are looking for bonuses don't even get though the course let alone the bonuses... unless you have already made many many thousands of $$$ online and you want to improve the video presentation that you are already doing, forget it. Video is no different to any other marketing, you still have to get traffic to the page, that where the hard work is.

    So I watched the videos. Um, it looks like a megahyped powerpoint course, yea video too. Of course, he even shows you how to rank videos in search engines. Hmm, keyword description. All this stuff is available for free. If you want to go beyond powerpoint and use real visual effects software. Get after effects, buy andrew's videocopilot stuff. Seriously, from what it looks like,( i didn't buy it) it's basically for people with no video experience at all. You want to learn about live video. Go to videomaker.com. They have all the video training tutorials you'll ever need for free on their website.

    Go drop 2k if you really want to learn the true secrets of youtube uploading and powerpoint transitions. Maybe how to edit your audio and clean it up. You can't just make crummy audio sound good by sweetening it up. You're going to need to shell out some dough for a decent mic setup if you want to sound anything like he does on the sales video.

    Enough. sorry for the rant. This info is available all over the place for free.

Seriously, from what it looks like,( i didn't buy it) it's basically for people with no video experience at all. You want to learn about live video. Go to videomaker.com. They have all the video training tutorials you'll ever need for free on their website.

      Go drop 2k if you really want to learn the true secrets of youtube uploading and powerpoint transitions. Maybe how to edit your audio and clean it up. You can't just make crummy audio sound good by sweetening it up. You're going to need to shell out some dough for a decent mic setup if you want to sound anything like he does on the sales video.

      Enough. sorry for the rant. This info is available all over the place for free.
      So wait... You watched the free videos, the ones that are designed to be a crash course in video marketing for people who just want to get started right now, and you think THAT is what the course is about?

      Go back. Watch the 4th video, it's the only one that's up right now. Pay attention to what's in the course. Pause when he gets to the editing section, and take a good look at how in depth it goes. Understand, this is not some flimsy Clickbank product on how to do YouTube marketing. This is education for a career in online video marketing.

      Personally, after looking through just the Traffic Boss section, I'm confident that I would have gotten my money's worth from that module alone. A full education on proper SEO from Dan Thies and Leslie Rohde? Dan Crowther covering Social Media marketing? Mike Koenigs covering content distribution? It's like putting together an IM dream team and having them teach a university course. If they could just pull in Frank Kern to discuss listbuilding and email marketing, it'd be all the education you'd ever need to really take your IM to the pro level.

      I've seen quite a few people on here spend $2K on WSOs over a few months and seem pretty damn satisfied, at least by the glowing reviews that they leave in thread after thread. I'd be willing to hazard a guess that their $2000 would have been better spent on training from a genuine expert in a given field. When said expert happens to be the #1 authority on that field, well, it's hard to imagine the money as wasted.

        2K for this??? Seriously folks...the only good video is one that sells your products and makes you some money and for $300 for Camtasia and a couple of products sold here on the forum on how to use video marketing, you are on your way to making a ton of money if you put some work into it. I think 2K for something like this is totally absurd.

        On the other hand, maybe you have a total video Jones working on you and you need to know virtually everything there is to know...that, by the way will be obsolete in a couple of years and you will need to take Andy's 2K refresher course...then you probably should get the course and get a college education in how to make a 10 minute video...I've got my 12 year old kid doing mine and I quit my regular job 2 years ago....=)

        Excellent, excellent, excellent post, Chris!!! I watched all of the free videos at least three times and downloaded them too. Unfortunately the Little Boss video won't play on Media Player and I'm kind of ticked off now because the free vids are gone! (If anyone can help me with this, I'd be forever grateful!!)

        Anyway, when I got to the last video, I watched it the whole way through. Let me say this -

        I've spent thousands in college tuition and in less than one half-hour video I learned more about PowerPoint than I did in freaking nine months of a PowerPoint course in college!!!

        Would I pay $2K on this program to learn the ins and outs of video production? You Bet Your A$$ I Would! I KNOW what the cost of education is - GOOD, solid education. I'm still paying on some of my college tuition yet and I'm 50+ years old!

        I'm not a newbie to the Internet by any shade of the imagination; I've watched way-too-many-to-count videos and hype and all that crap during my 15+ years online.

        But when I watched these videos - WOW! No, you would not be able to learn all of that in college and you'd be paying a hell of a lot more than $2000 even at the community college level to learn what you'd get in that course.

        Oh hell yeah, it's worth every freaking dime and if I had the money, I'd do it!

        However, I'm in the #1 spot on that last video - I need to use the free stuff first and make some $.

        If I had an extra $2K just sitting around, oh yeah, I'd have grabbed my credit card at the end of that video and paid for the program in a heartbeat.

        But anyway, that's my take on the videos and what I would anticipate the entire course to be like.

        Like I said, if you were going to try to come anywhere close to learning in school, even a business school, not full-on college, what he's teaching in that course, you'd probably be laying out 3x + that amount over time. Granted, you could get some of that paid for in scholarships, grants and loans, but you'd have to take multiple classes and they're not going to teach you real-world what to do with the info once you're done.

        But anyway - did anyone here download the videos and actually get them to play? I'm running Win7 on a brand new computer but Win Media Player says something about a codec and it won't load the video. :confused:

    I honestly can't afford it, or I would buy it. I already have a few books on video editing, but that's not really what I would be looking for from Andy. If I bought it, I would be looking to learn from his experience and from his own personal techniques.

    Anyone can buy a book and learn the technical "how-to" for editing video, but you rarely can buy experience, and I have a feeling Andy's is worth far more than the price tag of his product.

    I for one, am disappointed I'm going to miss out on this. (my financial situation is pathetic

    Video Boss has now sold out for the time being it seems.

    If any proof were needed that video drives people wild into a buying frenzy, the course itself was proof of the pudding selling out in a few short hours.

    The launch was entirely video, no salesletter to be seen.

    The members area looks great and the coaching starts on Friday.

    I don't think anyone who has signed up believes it is going to be no work, even Andy Jenkins made clear in his final pre launch video that clients will have to take action, go through all the modules and implement the material.

    There isn't an issue for me about the time, even if it takes me a week to create a quality video initially after going through the training it will be well worth it.

    It takes me a few days to do a quality salesletter in any case, and we all know video converts MUCH better.

    I Agree with Scott Million about the whole cost of video production. I'm in the same online and offline video production business.

    i would love to see some video designed by AJ students after they finishes the whole training. BY the way, about $1,997 - to some it might be expensive, but if you can shorten your lurning curve, then money is well spent.

    to me personally video editing, though it is very tiring (long hours took to produce even 60 sec video).. but, the end result is the satisfaction. Especially when we can provide good value to clients.

    So good luck with video Boss!

    Yes,
    There's always a cheap way and an expensive way - remember the coastal footage? The cheaper camera footage looked a whole lot better than the expensive one!

    So the focus on the 2 videos was that you can pick up any old camera and you'll be in there with a chance, because most marketers are too intimidated by making videos to try. And yes, the keywords I googled don't have video footage at all, in many cases.

    Yet the training had all kinds of technical jargon that a $500 video camera wouldn't be up to at all. I took screen dumps of video 4 and a lot of what is said looks and reads very much like a SEO or marketing WSO.

    Nevertheless, I woke up decidedly keen to buy it this morning, but as the day wore on, I decided I would leave this one. Fortunately it was sold out.

    I got a lot from the first 2 videos and the 3rd too, so thanks to Andy Ill move forward with what I learned. I could almost quote his best line. I think it was that the quality of what is on Youtube is so bad - it's almost a no brainer to do better. He seemed to be advising us to show our personalities and sense of humour and enjoy what we're doing. That way we'll probably do very well, without the bells and whistles - I hope so.

      I'm sure if you're proactive you'll make your money back.

      If you just buy courses and do nothing with them.

      Then this probably isn't the course for you.

  • In my opinion, 2k for what's basically a fancy pants power-point slide video training course seems out of whack, no matter how many PLF-tactics they applied to their launch.

    I do plenty of video marketing and you don't need to spend 2k to learn how to animate few coherent power-point slides, with a bit of voice over and some mild music on the background. A single weekend toying around with the software will get you there.

      I bought it too. I was already sure I would get more than my money's worth, but I looked at all the bonuses and couldn't pass up one that my friend was offering. I looked at a bunch of them, but ultimately, with a $500 cash rebate, a cool wristwatch, and a complete article website as well, I couldn't resist. That makes it less than a grand, and I think I already have almost all the digital bonuses I need anyway, filling up two hard drives.

      It was listed as a Warrior deal, but I never saw it on WF. I found it on a blog search, http:buyreview.org/blog/?page_id=54 . I don't know if it's still available. I think VB is sold out for the time being, though they always seem to open back up for a few sales after the dust settles. Doesn't hurt to be on their list anyway, cause I think Andy will send out a lot of good free stuff as well.

      Anyway, I look forward to sharing with all of you who did take the leap, as I think we can make a lot of money with well made videos. I already have several in the works. Heck, I learned a lot just from the pre-launch videos. Tomorrow, I'm helping him to promote a Video product... so, I'm pretty excited. Talk to y'all later. Terry

    Only a handful suggested that comments from those who have actually used the product would be useful. The rest are just excited by the launch.

    Personally, I'd like to see someone who bought it and six months later said he/she made their money back and then some applying the methods in it. Of course, I'd have to trust this person has well.

      That will be Video No 4 on the Course :-)

      Yes I was lured by the pre-sale videos and was lucky enough to get in before they closed the doors.

      Although I am only on Video 8 at the moment, I can say that what I have learned already is worth the whole course fee. And we havent even started on video editing yet.

      The video's are high quality, good supporting matterial, and the member portal where it all get's delivered is clean and crisp.

      I had to contact Support and had an immediate reply. (My signup Bonus enquiry, which wasnt even their problem)

      So Far I cannot speak highly enough of this course and Andy Jenkins.

      I guess I cannot finish without saying it ......"Like a BOSS"

        I agree,

        I have been through quite a few 2k courses and this
        is my favorite so far.

        I'm a bit of a techie geek...

        I like recording audio and video and
        all that stuff.

        But Andy also does a great job of explaining the
        marketing side of things as well.

        I'm quite impressed with the quality of the material
        and the content management system is the best
        I've seen.

        It's hard to believe there are still a ton of modules
        to go through.

        I can't stop watching the videos.

        For all the naysayers...

        If you think it cost too much.

        Go watch videos on You Tube.

        They really don't compare.

    There is nothing wrong with shopping for a bonus, as long as you believe the product is worth the asking price without it. I have been making videos in a vaccuum without the kind of expertise that Andy is offering. I believe it is worth even more than $2k with what you'll be able to take from it if you are proactive. I certainly intend to be. There are many times when I just need a little piece of help that could save me hours or days of work.

    I wasn't an affiliate for the launch, so when I decided to buy, it seemed only prudent to look for a real valuable bonus. Otherwise you're just throwing money away. I chose the one I mentioned earlier today and now have a chance to JV with the affiliate I bought through.

    Hell, I'm an affiliate for Andrew Fox's 'Affiliate Millionaire' launch next week, but I might just buy it myself through Steven & Tim just to get the bonuses. They're all things I thought about buying. Of course I'm sure some will buy it for my bonus too. That's just the nature of the game now. No sense fighting it. Of course it is easier now that I'm really making some money from all this. But I started at square one just like everyone else.

    I will certainly share some of what I learn from it with those who will take the time to listen. With any of these big products, you will get exactly what you extract from it. No one will drill a hole in your head and download it. They say 'you get what you pay for' but I believe 'you get what you take away from something' regardless of what you paid! Terry

        If you are making videos yourself already then you know it isn't hard to do. You also know what you may want to improve and you can quickly get the information you need to do that for little things you may want to tweak. And all of that information is free.

        But to be at that point you have to have a little bit of experience in making a video. Like having a simple camera and uploading a few.

        This was an offer not for those people, because those people do not need the video boss and know that the price is insane.

        This is an offer targeted to beginners. These are people who know nothing about video except that there are people on the internet making money and using videos as part of their money making strategy.

        They are excited by the hype and to them it is worth spending $2,000 to be a part of it. Almost everyone buying this is a beginner who probably has not ever made a single video in their life, even though it takes just a few minutes to set up a camera, press play, and then upload it on to youtube.

        Most of the people will not actually do anything with the product. The reason they never made a video to begin with is they are a dreamer. And by watching the hyped up videos they are given a chance to dream more. And for them it is worth spending the $2,000 to feel more excitement while making a purchase and to dream even harder.

        They then won't do anything. Will only make it through one or two modules if that. Will never make videos. Then they'll keep reading more of the guru emails and watching more promotions and jump on to the next hot thing.

        But for someone really interested in making money it doesn't take dreaming it takes WORKING and not buying some $2,000 course when you can just get a camera and actually start to do something.

        To me it isn't worth $2,000. But to many of the dreamers he may have been able to sell it for $10,000 or even $25,000. Not as many would have bought it, but I'm sure a few would.

        I'm hoping this email will make you angry by forcing you to recognize yourself. You see if I can just get a few people angry enough to get up and actually start to do something, well that I think is a value you cannot put a price tag on. It is worth much more than $2,000.

        And I'm not going to charge you anything for reading this email.

    No matter what anyone thinks, Andy sold out. He found his buyers. Isn't that marketing? 99% of the people won't buy for one reason or another. Opinions are all over the place.

    When YOU go to sell something you'll get the same thing. Perhaps it won't be as open and notorious as a big launch but the reader is looking at your sales letter and gives a thumbs up or thumbs down in silence. Most of those that read your letter will say no, but your buyers will say yes. To them it was worth the price and commitment.

    The only reason for a review thread is for the fence sitters, the curious, and the nay sayers. The buyers are already in.

      Scott,
      Well said and I think that is what always gets overlooked with these big launches...the fact that the marketer (in this case Andy) was able to find the target audience for his product.

      Sounds similar to what is always taught in tons of online courses:

      1 - Find a group of people
      2 - Determine a problem or need that they have
      3 - Create a solution for their problem or need
      4 - Sell them your solution

      Andy, like many of the top marketers excels at those 4 steps and they really are the key to making money online.

      Respectfully,
      Tim

        I'm one of the hype eating sheep who signed up for VideoBoss.

        Before buying I thought I wanted to get into online video but imagined my limited skills just weren't up to it. I was also under the mistaken impression I had a general interest in video and wanted to be guided through a pretty complex subject in a structured manner by an expert who knew the ropes.

        Like some 'old school' medical student or airline pilot I had assumed you needed proper training to obtain professional results.

        Now I realise that making video is just a matter of pointing a camera and you're done. Like a fool I had little clue that expertise can be quickly gained from visiting free forums and chat rooms and browsing through millions of Google search results which are all laid out neatly into a coherent sequence.

        It was a bit of a relief then to discover I can get my money back using the VideoBoss refund guarantee. Now I know, even before the first course videos are released, this program will be a total waste of time I should rush off and demand my money back.

        But being a mindless idiot, I'm going to need to wait for somebody else to tell me why, how and when to act.

        The thing that upsets me most, it's not like we all had a free choice to sign up or not. Andy Jenkins made me do it!

            Video Boss is reopened for one hr through special links.

            Hi all. I see several here who didn't see video #4, or some of the others. They were all downloadable as MP4s, so I got them all. The site is open again for 1 hour right now and you can see video #4. He is going to put them all up again as evergreens, so you will be able to see them. In the mean time I'll ask him to be sure it's OK to share my copies with anyone here who wants them. Video 4 is up now.

            I bought it through this blog bonus link:

        Watching Andy's promo vids for the Video Boss should have discouraged
        anyone from wanting to learn to do video themselves!

        Maybe in a couple of months we'll be outsourcing our video needs
        to Andy's students - once they figure out they've dropped 2k to go
        back to school!

          I am an affiliate for VB, but i did not even promote it myself. Why?

          It's simply because the course is not really internet marketing, per se. If Andy pays USD50k+ for the tuition and 18 years to get to where he is. Does it hold water that we could get that kind of results by paying only $2,000 (4% of what he paid), and I have not counted the equipment that you need to purchase...

          What about time? and the opportunity that you'd lost by attending the course itself? Folks, we need to realize our limits and what we are good at, before getting hyped up and buying courses after courses...

          For other 3 considerations that you should consider, check out my review post here:

As others have said, he had some great info and for us newbs who can't afford the full course yet, it seems like a good way to start. But, now all that's on the site is a SOLD OUT message and an opt-in form. I opted-in, but I WANT THE STINKIN MINI VIDS!!! So if anybody knows where I might get them PLEASE let me know!!

        So now that Andy has posted the introduction video and released the first 2 modules, I'd like to post a quick update for the people who are here to, y'know, read reviews :p

        In the intro video, Andy addressed one of the main arguments that people in this thread have been making against Video Boss... The idea that it is a nuts and bolts, "this is how you make a powerpoint presentation and upload it to youtube" course.

        He emphasized that the course is about strategies and tactics, and his focus is going to be on teaching how to MARKET through video. It's not a course about how to use video software, his advice there was to read the manual or watch tutorial videos if you're stuck. He is there to teach us how to use video effectively as a medium for marketing.

        To that end, I had the opportunity to watch the first 2 videos (then promptly got pulled away to deal with a pet emergency) and I already have over a page and a half of notes. Since these videos were designed to sort of ease us in, I was very surprised at how content-dense they were. I'm absolutely pumped to get back into it, I honestly have not been this engaged by a course or its teacher in years.

        Andy's parting shot for the day was an FAQ where he announced that he will be providing both PDF transcriptions and downloads of the videos once the refund period passes.

        I'll keep this thread updated as I progress through the course. I'm working on my 1st video based solely on the free videos he gave out during the prelaunch, but its slow going as I've never used Keynote before and I'm also having a bit of a tough time locating decent free 3d clip art. I also want to put together a video using only the free stuff and then make an updated version using what I learn in the course and compare the results. No guarantees, as working through the course is my first priority, but I'll see what I can get out for you.

    Would anyone mind sending me the videos or pointing me to the right spot?

    What strikes me immedietly is how in my short time on the warrior forum, how much good free information is here if you dig around and even more so in the war room.

    Also how many times people have expressed how much better this information is in comparison to high ticket hyped stuff knocking about, so called gurus included.

    I wonder how many people will actually take action and put this seemingly astounding course into action that isnt available anywhere else.

    I dont understand why anyone cannot just study how to make videos for free in links posted earlier in the thread and then apply what you already know about marketing and if that isnt enough then go ahead and study the videos that the leading IMs have already made that are in the public domain for everyone to see.

      If I wanted to learn how to make money as an auto mechanic, I wouldn't go about it by disassembling cars on my own and studying them based on random semi-topical books I got at the local library.

      Sure I COULD learn this way. Or, I could go apprentice to a knowledgeable mechanic, and learn the principles rather than the specifics, and get the benefit of experience without having to earn it myself.

    Yeah, it's sold out until he re-launches in a couple of months. Look for more spots to open in the spring or early summer.

    I have a question - in one of his 3 pre-launch videos he talked about buying a very inexpensive camcorder. I think it was under $200.00. Does anyone remember the name of the camcorder he recommended? Since he took down his pre-launch videos I can't go back and watch them again.

      I'm 98.25% sure it's the Kodak Zi8. I got Best Buy to price match me one when I used "Red Laser" iPhone app in front of the store manager and they sold it to me for $150. Even at $200 it's a great deal.

      As far as Andy's course material, I spent another 2 hours going through it last night and I have to say I'm pretty excited. In 5 years, I've never written a single script for a video but Andy has me pumped to try it out.

      I know my videos are going to have more focus, clarity and effectiveness after going through his training modules. I'd say the last 2 hours I just spent is easily going to yield me tens of thousands of more dollars this year (and that isn't hype either).

    Here's why - I just got recruited to do a splash-page site for a non-profit. While that doesn't necessarily mean "gratis", in this case it does. So I need to find a solution or a couple of solutions that would allow me to make a video on the cheap, add audio and my voice-over, optimize it, and sprinkle this bad boy all over the web in as many places as possible.

    Any and ALL suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Well, I don't own the course and I was not one of the people moaning about how much it cost. Fact of the matter is that when it launched I just didn't have the funds. Then it was sold out. Then Andy did an encore (for want of a better word) and opened it up for, like, 2 hours. Then he closed it again.

    Now I have the funds to invest, but it is sold out. I, like a lot of people in this thread, have to wait for a few months until Andy opens the doors again.

    I am eager to invest, but until he opens the doors again I will explore free or less expensive alternatives. I don't see anything wrong with that.

    I think just watching his videos you can learn everything. For me it's more exciting to learn at my own experience, it's how I learned to play guitar and to breath. That doesn't mean I can't appreciate talent like Andy Jenkins, in fact I recognize it and learn from it.

    The videos he gave out were great, everything we need to be casual video makers. Great guy, great product.

    Are his free videos still available someplace?

    I am not ready to invest in that course at this time. But here is what I find interesting. Typically if I were to apply what I see from a high value course in their free Pre-launch stuff and I am able to make money I have no problems getting it in the Re-launch. That is one way to test it.

    Not everyone can take high value information and use it in order to make money fast enough to justify the purchase of a $2000 course. In other words, the information can be fabulous to me. I am not certain the issue for me is whether or not I want to be professional. I may or may not have enough staff to make it work.

    There is an accounting/inventory term called "turnover". The concept applies here. I don't look at every purchase as an "investment". The point is not to accumulate digital assets on your "books". It doesn't work like a capital "investment". This one (Video Boss) I would evaluate on the basis of whether or not I could "turnover" the information into cash flow. That, as everything is, is individual to how much time I have to invest, how many other course I am trying to implement, outsourced workers, JV partners, Opt-Ins and so on...

    The next question is how fast I can turn the information into higher cash flow, recurring or other wise. Because if I personally cannot turn the information over into cash in my business within a certain period of time it does not make sense for me to buy. In our business things change so fast that if I do not implement quickly, then what I pay does not matter. That goes for a $17 WSO or a $1997 course. The two issues for every purchase are: 1)speed of implementation and 2) asset or information turnover into positive cash flow.

    Some of us do this automatically in our head, as one of the posters has done above. If not, we need to take a deep breath and think through the issue of turnover. About 75% of the courses that are put out at that price have pretty good information in there and will probably give us life time access to stuff that we might be able to use.

    (This is especially true when it comes to PPC courses. How fast can you turn the information over into recurring profitability--revenue minus expenses? )

    So again, having said that...does anyone know his free prelaunch vids can be found?

    Thanks,
    Charles

      Hey all. Been a little busy with Video Boss, so I haven't had a ton of time to post here. I just finished the "Case Studies" section, and had more "aha!" moments than I could count. The next section Andy's posting up is the "Live Video" section, which is not overly relevant to my marketing at the moment. For me, that means that next week is time to kick it into overdrive and make some videos! I'm hoping this will net me traffic to some of the sites that I screwed up keyword research on and couldn't get ranked due to brutal competition. I'll let you know how it goes, and I might even put a video or 2 up for public critiquing if I'm feeling particularly froggy!

      @AFFILIATE ROB, if you're still wanting to get into the course and have the funds to invest now, I found this link after following The_VideoBoss on Twitter. Not sure if it's Andy doing the tweeting or some super affiliate buddy who convinced him to leave an extra access link, but there it is. For the record, I'm pretty sure this is acceptable, but if the mods feel otherwise, no hard feelings if they delete it

      Either way, glad I could help you out Rob.

        Thanks Chris. I've been way too busy with projects lately and learning the stuff you suggested. For instance, I downloaded the free CamStudio and have been using that, I found an eBook that taught me how to get my videos optimized, so I've been doing that, and I'm studying the videos in the Texas Wealth Club.

        But I did happen to notice that Kevin Riley will be teaching the Video Production Lab Workshop. So for all of you who thinks that Andy's product is way to expensive, how does $35.00 grab ya?

        Obviously it's not the EAXCT same course as Video Boss, but from the sales page, it will give you a real good foundation.

        I'm wondering if this is some sort of sales strategy - wait several weeks after a celebrity guru launches - and ultimately closes - a very expensive course,
        monitor the forum to see if there are a number of people who were shut out and/or who thought the original price was too expensive, and launch a competing product for a fraction of the cost of the celebrity guru. BINGO - go straight to the bank.

            If you enjoy making videos and you're willing to put in the time and effort to master it, there's no reason why you can't use it to make some good money. My suggestion would be this:
            1. Pick a niche with products that sell.
            2. Use Market Samurai to find niche-relevant keywords with low-moderate competition.
            3. Get a .com domain from Namecheap and hosting from Hostgator if you don't have either.
            4. Install wordpress and change the page slug structure to %postname%, install all-in-one SEO and Google XML sitemaps and fill in the necessary fields.
            5. Create a content-heavy post for each keyword, with a video embedded at the very top and a link to the product between the video and the content.
            6. Create a YouTube channel, get TubeToolbox ($10 / mo) and start adding friends and subscribers harvested from other niche-relevant videos.
            7. Try and make / upload 1 video every day or so, link to your site in your description and include a strong call to action at the end.

            Not sure exactly how far along you are in IM, so that's why I included the mundane bits, no offense intended if you're farther along than that.

            Obviously you'd have to build some backlinks to each of the pages in order to rank well, but you'd have a decent amount of traffic to start with from YouTube. If you integrated Twitter, Facebook, etc. you could probably start making some decent cash long before you become relevant in Google's eyes.

            This is not an overnight process though. If you want money in the next 2 weeks or so, you either want to flip websites (low margins most of the time) or take on SEO or writing work.

            If your wife's situation is that dire, she may be better off looking for more stable work. Replacing an entire income online takes a lot of time and effort, and can be very hit or miss depending on your experience, research, and a bit of luck. Either way, I hope my suggestions help, and I hope your situation works out for the best.

    Nope, he makes it pretty clear that he doesn't do anything overly complex, and he gave away a bunch of his sources for graphics, animations, templates, and music in the pre-launch videos.

    The value in the course comes from 2 parts. The first is the marketing knowledge. We're talking about full access to the guy who launched Stompernet, generated a ridiculous opt-in rate (and an equally impressive conversion rate) for SEO Brain Trust, and generated a good percentage of the buzz behind Amish Shah's Magic Bullet System. He's been answering every question thrown in front of him, be it technical or marketing related, and some of the stuff he's shared just in the comments has been killer.

    Part 2 is learning his process. Yes, you could stumble through the steps of creating a video, or follow a basic tutorial online. Yes, you could get basic instruction on all of the technical stuff in the course. What you wouldn't get, however, is the streamlined start-to-finish process of a professional who has been doing this stuff every day for years.

    Oh, and all of the guest educators and extras that he's hooking us up with are kind of nice too. I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on Kajabi to give that a try, and the Traffic Boss section should easily let me recoup the cost of the course.

    Yeah, he considers AfterEffects stuff to be "advanced" so it's going in the final module of the training. The kind of stuff you find on VideoHive is above and beyond what 99% of internet marketers using video are ever going to touch. That kind of stuff is for the techie crowd (which means I'm pretty excited for it!) and the go-hards.

    So far, Video Boss has been awesome, hopefully it doesn't take a nose dive when our part of the course is released. ;-)

    Since I am in the course, you wouldn't believe a testimonial from me on Video Boss.

    So here's my testimonial for "video" as a concept:

    "Video is really really good." When we made our last offer, my sales letter without video converted at 5.5%. Adding an 8-minute video took me under an hour from concept to script to finished video. Test results say? Adding a video to the sales letter took the conversion rate up to 13.2%.

    Like a BOSS!

      I don't think it's necessarily true that people won't believe you, because you are in the course - especially people who know you.

      But I am wondering about your testimonial. Are you saying that the course is what helped you finish your video in this amount of time? As the testimonial stands it merely reads that "adding video" increased conversions.

    Yes, Mark. As I said... My testimonial is for the value of video.... but yes - using Andy's scripting templates makes it a lot easier to write a script quickly. I do not recommend trying to knock one out in an hour unless you've got no other choice, and have done a lot of marketing videos before.

            Tony has a good point. Ignore domain flipping for now. As far as where to start is concerned, follow the outline I listed in my last post. You can find plenty of free information on each step using some basic Google-fu

            If you end up getting a traditional out of the home job, don't worry, that's how the vast majority of internet marketers start out anyway. All it means is you get a trial by fire test of your work ethic, because you're going to be getting up, going to work, coming home, and working, then going to bed. Tell your wife that you love her very much, but you're going to need at least 2 hours of uninterrupted work time 5 nights a week because you want to get this off the ground as quick as possible so she doesn't have to work and so you can transition to working at home full time.

            Do that for a month or two and you should have some spare coin coming in to invest in outsourcing some parts of the process. Remember that as an internet marketer, your job is never done, there is always something more you can be doing to get traffic, get sales, build trust, etc. The key to success in this business is perseverance. How badly do you want it?

            For the sake of keeping this at least partially on topic, anyone who is on the fence about Video Boss for whom the cost is not a factor should definitely jump on it. Andy has just released the first chunk of the "look over my shoulder" module which contains all the scripts, keynote/powerpoint files, and miscellanea from the actual Video Boss launch, and there's a lot more to come. He's been adding extras into the program since day 1 (lifetime access instead of the original 6 months, currently in the process of setting up a full-on community portal to set up mastermind groups, service exchanges, and discussion, and he's planning on hooking us up with kajabi in some way as well, and knowing Andy there's probably more) and I've never seen an IM guru show this level of passion and responsiveness for their customers before. If you have the cash to invest and you're the kind of person who takes action with what they learn, it will be worth your while.

            Russell - Tony was 110% right. You definitely sound like you need to focus. But please take it seriously. I know you were joking about A.D.D, but in truth, this is an unconscious signal that you are giving yourself. You're saying, "I know I'm not focused, but there is a reason ... I'm different ... I have this problem with this label, and I just can't focus like I should".

      Agreed. I don`t think there are ANY I have seen that have measured up to the Video Boss launch, and that includes Guru launch videos that were produced by Andy`s team himself!

      Even the video above, the one about the costs in education is rather basic, and mostly just frames that were created in screenflow/powerpoint.

      That said, I did NOT buy Andys course, but I certainly would have at $500 or so, like he was initially planning to, before he was swayed to price it much much higher by Jeff Walker.

      The reason I would have bought at that price is because I learned enough from his videos just by watching the launch and I felt that price would have been fair. As it is though, what I would suggest to you is that YOU can learn ALL this on your own, just by pushing your creative edge in every production. If that means ripping ideas from someone else, so be it - just add your own spin. Might I also suggest just a monthly subscription at Lynda.com which has a boatload of video and presentation training, as well as just about every other piece of software that requires training.

      I like to think that I was making good videos before VB, but they certainly did improve after I watched VB launch video and then just challenged myself to figure out how to improve my own productions. Below are a few samples work flows:

      Product intro page video that uses screenflow, garageband, and keynote. I also use photoshop for some graphics and combined TWO screencasts.

      Here I combined two screencasts but rendered a separate head-shot as the audio overlay. Used same software as above.

      Client video for product launch. I worked extra long on the script as well, and incoprporated multiple transitions combining keynote AND screenflow, while using some sound creative effects too.

      Client video using multiple screencasts timed with keynote titling.

      Client video that uses one of my fav techniques that use popular movie clips to get an idea across. It surprises viewers and tends to keep them tuned in to the end.

        Yeah, I heard that underground interview too, disappointing. I also would have joined at a more reasonable price. I'd love to see the course open up again as a membership site at something like $100 per month (hint hint Andy)

        Yup, I helped talk Andy into going high end with the product. I also swayed Andy to build in a lot more value into the course. That's generally going to be the direction I take anyone that I consult with.

        As Video Boss was originally planned, it was only going to be a tiny fraction of what it became after Andy decided to go high end, and make it a full-out be-all and end-all course.

        And, in my opinion, the Video Boss course ended up being one of biggest examples of massive overdelivery that I've ever seen.

    I'm curious what kind of software he instructs people to use to create videos.

    I personally have the full Adobe suite so it's not an issue for me (and I'm certainly not the market for a product like this) but I'm curious if he expects his customers to purchase something like Premiere, Vegas, After Effects, Final Cut, etc.

      Well, you definitely has no issue as you have best in market products, but many people cannot afford this suite so he gave the list of many softwares and ask us to choose the best we can afford. He show us the variety of products. Also he told it doesn't matter which software we use, as its not about bow and arrow, its about the archer.

        Is one of my favorite courses and
        I still refer to it often.

        It's improved my videos by 100%.

        Andy's the Boss Ya'all,

        Craig

    The only piece that I would really like to learn in video boss is how to create killer powerpoint animations, and that definitely isn't worth the $2k price imo. It may take me a bit of time to find a great course for this.

    As for all the other bonuses and modules related to SEO, I found WSOs that offered the same info if not better. I tried link liberation 2.0, I used to be a stomper member so I can safely say this.

    These products definitely helped me figure things out a lot, but since I started buying WSOs since the beginning of the year, I decided to stop going for big ticket items.

    If I do find a great video creation course, I will post it here.

    I just checked my downloads - they work fine on Windows 7 and with Windows Media Player.

    Frankly, if anyone is in for a quick buck, Video Boss isn't the right tool. Try the Lottery or something. Not having seen the inside of the course, just judging by the pre-launch freebies and no.4, it's probably worth every penny if you intend to use it professionally for IM. It looks like he's got everything covered you would ever need.

    Having said that, I am sure there is other stuff available that is more than sufficient for most IMers' basic needs to create great viewable videos (yes, he has commented further up the page, so check it out) and at a mere fraction of the Video Boss price. However, it still is a "course" which means people will still have to get down to learning the stuff not just storing it.

    Just a thought.

      I just wanted to use the free videos to help put together a couple of videos for my sites.

      Max, would you mind sending me a compressed copy of JUST the "Little Boss" video? I think that was freebie #2, right? I think something may have happened to mine during the download because the "Traffic Boss" video plays fine. You'll find my email on any of my websites.

      Or, I could set you up temporarily on my FTP server and you could upload it. I'd really appreciate it!

        I have an easier suggestion. I checked last night: If you go to videoboss.com (the main sales page), an opt-in box drops down after a few moments that will eventually lead you to the freebie videos and the download link. The file is about 100MB which will take ages to upload from my machine. If that doesn't work, PM me and will sort it out.

          Thanks Mac!!

          As long as he leaves them up for - well - forever, I'll be happy. ROFLMAO!! When I right click on the links, they want to save as .htm files which won't open in Media Player. But I'm perfectly happy to watch them online, as long as I can access them. :-)

          Oh, and sorry but I can't PM through the site here; I'm not a paid member yet so I don't have that access.

            Everything I saw Andy do in his videos (which are great) I learned at my local community college film and video production program. $40 per semester with an instructor there in person and state of the art software, computers and studio.

            Just saying, FYI.

              Which is great if you can afford to go back to school, which I can't.

    If anyone is taking the video boss course, this might be suitable for you. Amazon have got a special offer on sony HD Platinum Movie Studio video editing suite. I don't know how long this offer will last, but get one while they are so super cheap.
