WOW... Would You Pay $9997 For This?

39 replies
I just heard about this guy tonight, and it appears that he is charging 10k just for hanging out & speaking/consulting with him for one single day... :confused:

Howie's Ultimate System

I would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this.

    Where is the pudding? You know, the proof is in the pudding. Better have visible results to merit it.

    Browsing his page, it looked like lots of fluff and hype. I don't know any of his members enough to be impressed out of ten grand!

    It is very off the wall. I think this is aimed for those people who believe themselves to be able to take everything they learn in ONE DAY with this guy and be able to re-earn that money they spend almost immediately.

    I see it as a scam of sorts, the price is truly outrageous in my opinion.

      I was part of Howie's Conversation Domination group for 12 months. He's also part of the Stompernet staff. He really is an interesting fellow....kind of an acquired taste (big grin)...War, pillage, take no prisoners mindset. Now a lot of his techniques are "grey to blackhat" (or as I like to call it... "Polk-a-Dot Hat") and have a short shelf life IMHO, but they can be used to get traffic and $$ for a period of time.

      As far as $9997...... just go to an event where he is speaking, meet him in the bar afterwards, start buying him drinks.....ask him about his business.... buy him more drinks....rinse and repeat for a few hours. You may get 75% of the good stuff but only pay 2% of the costs. Just an idea :-)

      Also ask him what he wears when doing his conference calls... :-)

        Hey Ken,

        Weren't you at Howies house last December?

        Anyway, couple of things about Howie...

        He knows his stuff, but as Ken states, it's a lot of gray/black hat. Short to medium term results. Best suited for those with a staff.

        That's assuming this is what his one-day thing centers on. I have not spoken to Howie in a while, so I don't know.

        Is it worth the 10 grand? For a newbie, I believe it would be WAY too much too fast. Howie goes at a rapid fire pace. All solid content, but if you don't pay attention, you'll miss it.

        As Ken also said - go to an event where he is. He is VERY approachable and a nice guy.

        And for the obligatory "seems a scam..." type posts - expensive, yes. Scam, no. Not Howies style. Sometimes expensive simply means expensive - not scam.

        I am also a member of Conversarion Domination. He doesn't skimp and adds fresh quailty content often.

        My 2c

        Mike

          I don't know if I'd rush to get out my checkbook for $10k at the stage I'm at, but I've purchased a couple of Howie Schwartz's (much less expensive) products in the past, and they were good quality for the money. This sounds like something I'd go for if I really thought I was at the point in my business where intensive coaching could be the tipping point to push me up to another level and I would be able to take action on what I learned right away.

          Howie's stuff is great. I have been on his mailing list for awhile now. I also join almost all of his teleseminars and I also received some really good content from him as part of the STSE2/Net Effect bonus and it was all wonderful and made me money.

          He is a very smart buy and has a priceless attitude. Hit it , hit it hard, and take no prisoners. My kind of guy.

          If he is charging that much I'm sure it is more than worth it if you have a staff and experience. If you are going to drop that much you need to be fully prepared to implement it quickly. From what I have seen of him, he stays very up to date on the latest changes in search engines and the latest in Web 2.0 properties.

          Overall from what I have scene from him it is all very good.

    definitely.. Howie is the man.. I just teach some of his stuff to my cousin who just started online. After 2 weeks of tweaking, etc. He start making money yesterday.. lol $240 yesterday and $80 so far for today. Not a really bad figure from a newbie.

    Meet howie couple times in the seminar and I love what ever comes out of his mouth haha..

    However I don't think this will suit for newbie.. Reasons? too advanced stuff could blow your brain off. lol

    I might take his offer if its not sold out until the 10th and might post some more review later on.. Cheers!

    No I would not, I'll say one thing, buy a few products, follow and watch the big people and see what they do and what they use, and get started and make money!

    Ooopsy! Wow I'm dumb, look what I did here, I'm telling you not to go buy this, rather follow the biggies and do what they do :rolleyes:

    Well this would be an even better way to do that, you not only follow them and do what they do, but you get tought by them, hmmm.

    No I don't know though, I wouldn't buy it.

    Edit: QUESTION:
    Hey sorry, but who is this guy though? I've never heard of him.
    I'll go look him up but can someone tell me something about him though, thanks.

    Howie's great. He has rock solid knowledge that he doesn't skimp on sharing. He keeps the words interesting with his delivery and antics.

    That said, this course is not for newbies. It probably isn't for anyone who happened to come across it, either. At this price and at this level of knowledge, look for a coach in your specific knowledge area, not a cookie cutter solution.

    You have to know his work to pay such a high amount.

    Hi Jarad:

    Hope all is well. If he can get 10,000 I would like his agent's phone number please. The truth is as a public speaker, writer, and former disc-jockey I can tellstate you can book many decent rock bands for less money.

    People that command that level or higher to lecture or appear on different shows normally come with a great looking resume that can be confirmed.

    Have a fantastic Sunday.

      I've spent many days with Howie.

      If you ask the right questions during that day, it would be worth $10,000. Of course, you'd have to go home and actually work to recoup your investment, but I'm confident you'd get a return on your payment if you were seriously dedicated.

    Fluff and scam? Thats all everyone says when they have no idea about any program or marketer. Have you even seen any of howie's stuff? This is one list Im not be getting of in a hurry. His free videos and webinars alone are the best free content ive seen. If you could afford 10k, you would already be making tonnes of cash online and 10k probably wouldnt matter so much.

      I really like Howies free content and he always has some interesting stuff. But after buying his black hat is back course, I wouldn't get anything from him again. He waffles a lot through his videos and spends the first 10 - 15 minutes of his modules telling you about more products. Also after watching loads of his free content, it seems he just starts rehashing a lot of content and makes lots of products out of them. Plus a lot of what Howie does is just based on scale i.e. don't make 10 squidoo lenses, make 1000, he is a master of outsourcing.

        Howie knows his stuff. But I agree with Mike that it would not be a wise investment for a new marketer.

        With more experience and the resources to implement his strategies, it would be cheap at the price.

    If you have the money to invest it would be a great investment as this guy is obviously at the top of his game and if you want to be coached by the best then you will have to pay top dollar. If you decide to go for it I would check out the guarantee to make sure that if it isnt for you can get your money back.

    It's far more than a day of consulting.

    The package constains so much it would take you a month to get through it, in addition you get access to a apprentice 3 which is a weekly private coaching group with a rev share with Howie.

      "apprentice 3 which is a weekly private coaching group with a rev share with Howe"

      a little known fact about the apprentice program is that the project managers are the ones that are going to promote all the content the members create, most definetly with automated/semi automated software. so you have a ton of members creating content for the same niche(s), then it getting promoted (bookmarked, published on 2.0 sites) by them and the project managers. Of course some of the content is gona stick and rank well. Now- of all the apprentices that think they can do what every1 did collectively on their own, theyre gona find out they need to buy the automation software because its way to tedious to do it on your own, or hes gona tell you to use his outsource team.

      His method- put a bunch of content (duplicated, doesn't matter) on as many web 2.0 properities as you can, and interlink them with each other as well as to your money page. So each property is going to hav a link to 1 or 2 of the other properties, and a link to the money page. Do this with videos, bookmarking, squidoo hubpages etc, then ping eveything. However, it's only going to work for products/keywords with almost no competition. He recommends finding things that have little traffic that you expect ppl will search for soon (product launches), or highly specific terms, product model numbers, etc. It may have been good for one product, but every product is this same exact thing, all getting less than mediocre reviews, with one occasional person popping up to praise him, only because he DOES seem nice and truthful, until you find out its an act. He's making his money teaching the method, not by doing it, and trying to make as much money as possible while it lasts, hence a product every day it seems. Don't pay for his products, just find people in forums that explain what it is. I can't believe he's in stompernet.

      P.S. He always disables his chats now for live events because people don't respect him, and end up spamming the chats warning every1 not to buy his stuff and getting it for free at forums. What do you expect for acting like such an idiot all the time. Skip his methods and have a good idea and build a business around that- obviously every1 teaching these quick hit money makers end up teaching it instead of keeping it to themselves for a reason.
