    I've been following the pre-launch of PPC Classroom and I am familiar with Amit and Anik, both of them are nice people based on my observation and I've attended all their pre-launch calls. So yes. It's good stuff. If you are willing to make that investment for your education, then do it. PPC isn't for everyone. If you don't have the money to squeeze, then it's tough. But you can start small and scale it up. So it's still possible.

    Here's the direct link to the "Big News" and Price Details:
    PPC Classroom 2.0 Launch

    It's free to join "as they claim" but they have a $97 monthly mastermind membership attached. To me, that's cheaper than joining any coaching programs that teach you about "internet marketing"

        That makes three of us then. I tried with two different cards, and then called the credit card company to make sure the information was right. I tried it in IE7 and Firefox so something is not right on their end somewhere.

          CouldnĀ“t either here.

          I thought this could be for being out of the states but I see
          happening with many other folks here.

          Actually I tried to sign up with them before a few months
          ago and same thing.

          Weird we have to push to give our money.

          Well folks, one thing that is VERY WRONG is there is no security certificate in the payment area. The page is just a http address and in my view is very risky indeed.

            Credit Card Failed. Thing is, that message comes back in 3 seconds, and i've never seen any merchant able to check and complete my card details in that time. Seems bogus.

            international Visa card, two cards with credit tried. Annoying.

            Really doing it just to check it out, total PPC Noobi, and Going for the Brad Callen Bonusses, which would have cost me $$

            I also had trouble with my credit card not being accepted. After it failed 2 cards that I know there should be no issues with, I stopped and tried to figure out what the problem was. It struck me that their form just asked for First and Last name, but my middle initial is on all my credit cards. I tried it by putting my first name and middle initial in the first name box. That worked and it went through this time without a hitch. So if that applies to anyone else, try it and see if that doesn't solve the problem.

    Hmm..a disgruntled PPC Classroom student.

    Indeed PPC does cost you money and there are some expensive tools that may be useful but you don't need it really, founders of SEO book claimed that they didn't buy a single keyword tool at all.

    Furthermore it depends on which Niche that you're targeting. I've done it in a small niche and it took me 2 hours after launching the review and ad and I got a sale. I didn't even use any keyword tool. I just slapped in keywords on what I thought would be "within a logical search term" -think in the person's shoe when the person is doing a search.

    For example, if you're going to target selling Camtasia.
    People would search for the term "buy camtasia 6.0", "download camtasia 6.0" etc. Then bid on that search term. It's expensive but it depends on how much you're willing to put up. Improve your Ad CTR and see the cost go down.

    Hardly anyone would do "destroy camtasia 6.0", "useless camtasia downloads"

    Well, in my opinion..think out of the box for a second and learn what you can from the experienced ones. Have an open mind when you learn. If you fail, keep trying but provided you follow a system that works. So at least you know, here's a system that works, my niche isn't working for me..but you can try another niche and that might be next gold mine.

        No intention to portray it as a lottery.

        Allow me to rephrase.

        Through trial and error-of course we hope to not have to make too many mistakes, you'll find a niche that would be potentially successful.

        Anik didn't have very many successful campaigns before he hit it big.

        It took Thomas Edison a few hundred tries before he successfully made the light bulb.

        Hmm I've got to be pretty careful with what I convey here at the WF less I get micro analyzed lol.

        Take it easy.

        Btw, I tried ordering about 30 minutes ago and it worked. Try a few more times after an hour a two, maybe that might work as everyone slows down.

    Don't worry, you are not unpopular for saying this. It's very helpful to be warned of possible pitfalls to this program. I'm always wary myself of big launch products, having been burned so many times in the past. I'm glas you posted because I had my finger on the "trigger" and now I'm not quite so sure.

  • I had the same credit card failed message. I was then asked to reenter the details and this time the same credit card worked. It sounds like there is a common problem with the initial form reporting that the credit card details were wrong.

    I hope that this doesn't mean that we've all been charged twice, including for the reportedly failed transaction. I'll be watching my credit card account with great interest.

      I had most of the same problems. Frankly, it seems that
      they simply were not ready for prime time.

      Besides at least 10 attempts to get my credit card accepted
      you then are put through the very same exercise again.

      Other than a login to the member site that will not let you go
      anywhere, I have received absolutely nothing from them.

      My gut is they put this thing up and never really tested it.

        Tried Amex but someone said earlier they're not accepting those so have been trying Mastercard ever since. Has anyone had a Mastercard payment go through?

    I was a little frustrated with their launch. I tried it a few times and about the 8th time, I decided to give it some time to relax and go back later.

    So I did and it worked.

    This is probably their first biggest launch since PPC 1.0. If there are 10 complaints on the WF, I bet there are more elsewhere. I'm sure they'll learn something from this.

      When I fixed this, it worked fine!

      The problems that most were experiencing when PPC Classroom 2 was first launched can be read in this thread.

      http://www.warriorforum.com/internet...classroom.html

      You would have thought that this time around all the problems had been ironed out, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

      The next thing that will be written about is the dreadful customer service when trying to obtain support.

        Like many of you I experienced the frustration of trying to have my credit cards accepted for a lousy ten bucks...not once not twice but three times on each of my 3 credit cards. To ad insult to injury I stayed up late 3am Australia to participate. After an hour 15 minutes I gave up. Sent support ticket to them still no response. Also sent notification to the affiliate link owner I was clicking through to let them know about the issue and to protect my bonus if I ever got through.
        Went to bed and now 12 and half hours later thought why no try my Debit card. Well, as I was about to complete the form again for the 10th time I decided to check the last check box which was about further Guru benefits. I had pointedly ignored this sales tactic on my previous 9 tries. Guess what ...my card was accepted and I was presented with the inevitable array of decending upsells. Still I'm in and hopefully my DVD will find its way to sunny Australia!

    They have a very confusing upsell... I already do not like them simply because I had to take 10 minutes to read and say yes, no , no , no

    I understand that is a way to "trick" people into getting a subscription which they can cancel at any time, but will probably keep for a few months... but this is not the type of marketing I want to learn.

    I hope the course has some real marketing advice in it - not simply ways to trick people and then hoping they don't fight the refund process.

      I am already in the system and started the courses. I can tell you, from the gate, that is NOT what this is. This seems to be REAL very valuable information! So far I feel great about signing up. I hope that helps.

      As a side note, I am doing this with very minimal knowledge of PPC advertising, yet it's already making sense to me.

      That's exactly the first thing I noticed when I signed up with them back in 10/2008 for the first release. I can deal with an upsell here and there, marketers market I guess, but it almost seemed like desperation. I had an uncertain feeling going into it. There must have been half a dozen products they were pushing before I had even gotten onto the site.

      There were a few decent bonuses for members, and I did learn some things about PPC I didn't know before. However, after a couple of months I didn't feel like there was really much left to pay for, and it was only $30/month. They've probably got a lot more things going on now though.

      I'm really not trying to talk it down, if someone hasn't done much with PPC it may totally be worth the $97/month or whatever the 'free' membership turns out to be. I had read a lot about PPC, even though I was still in the red overall, and I did learn there.

      To be fair though, when it was time for me to go, I didn't know there was an option for terminating the service in my account settings, and by the time I canceled, my card had been billed again. It was right around the holidays and I couldn't get any reply from their support, but after a week or so I did get the charge reversed, so I don't think you'll have to worry about them taking advantage of having your card information.

      Dan

      PS - Your saying that $500 a year on tools is a lot? Are you kidding me? LOL!

      Hahhaa.. that was hillarious Dan!!! I was thinking the very same thing.

      I am an IM newbie and signed up for this class. Without a doubt this was one of the best decisions I could have made since I am actually serious about developing a full time income through internet marketing.

      I have just about finished with the first 9 modules and the information presented is very precise, orderly, and easy to learn. Amit gives great examples and really gets behind the Why's so that the How's make even more sense.

      I still have alot of the course to go through to launch my first campaign but am definitely confident that I will be well prepared to do so.

      Also, they have an add on at $19.99 called the Niche Detective where they breakdown and give you 3 products to promote each month. Now I am not particulary keen on this since you are going to be promoting the same product as all of their other students but it could be worth it since you will have the ability to see and hear their thought processes as they build out these campaigns.

      In regards to the $97 a month charge. As long as someone is making a profit of $100 a month in their business why wouldn't they reinvest to obtain a top flight education? It is crazy that so many folks out there want everything handed to them and are not willing to work, invest, & pay their dues for success.

      That's all for my tirade here... except for one thing. If you don't want to invest in your education with a quality product then that is fine. That just means there is less qualified competition for me .

      To Success,

      John

        7. Press Release Fire ($19.95)
        8. Elite Sessions recordings ($97)

        Just follow these simple steps to get your choice of any 2 of the
        products above free:

        Step 1: Go here and order your free DVD teaching pay per click
        marketing. After you order, continue to step 2 below.

        => PPC Classroom


        Step 2: Submit a support ticket below and include your name, email address,
        receipt number from the DVD, and which 2 products you would like us
        to give you. You must include all 4 things so we can set up your
        download links asap.

        Support Desk

        Charlie, Nancy, or Jim from the help desk will then respond to your
        ticket with download information for the 2 products you chose.

        Obviously, the value of these bonuses is extremely high. These are
        products that over 50,000 people have paid regular price for.

        I want to make absolutely sure you don't pass up on this free
        "pay per click" DVD, so that's why I'm including this ridiculous
        bonus.

        Step 3: That's it!

        Be sure to go there right now to get your free DVD through this link:

        => PPC Classroom

        ... to get your 2 free copies of any of our products listed above.

        I know alot of people will be hitting that website today, so the
        DVDs will not be in stock for long.

        Also, I can only give away our own products as a bonus for a few days,
        as I obviously can't afford to give them away forever.

        Good luck!

          I just posted a full review of PPC Classroom 2.0 on my blog. I also had problems getting my credit card accepted, as documented here and here.

          For less than $10, I think the content for the basic (lifetime) PPC Classroom 2.0 membership is good value for the money. I only wish you didn't have to navigate through four separate upsells just to get there...

          But what I really don't like is the fact that the "PPC Inner Circle" is NOT accessible to me until after 30 days, which is when my first $97/month payment (if I don't cancel before then) will be made. Not sure how I'm supposed to be able to try the forum for 30 days for free... that's deceptive advertising in my mind.

            I'm also wondering what is happening with the Inner Circle membership. The sales page said:

            "A 30 Day "Free Look" at the PPC Inner Circle - The advanced 7 figure super affiliate secrets I won't see anywhere else. After 30 days, it's only $97 per month and I can cancel anytime from my PPC Classroom student page. "

            That means we should get it right now, not in 30 days. I was going to submit a support ticket, but don't even find a link to support within the member area.

              Wasn't there another launch of PPC Classroom 2.0 some months ago? Think they had problems then too.

              That's what I've been wondering too since autumn 2007. This is the third time around. I suppose there will always be some problems that are difficult to anticipate, but I think the PPC Classroom launches are just too ridden by problems.

              Originally Posted by Scrotus View Post

              I'm not among the ones that are keen to get into it, but I thought PPC Classroom 1.0 had lot of good information. I really didn't get the time to follow up as I should have, so that is not the fault of the PPC Classroom staff. I'm left with a lot of good PPC education on my harddisk though, in the form of downloaded webinars and presentations.


              What I felt a little dissatisfied with was;
              • When I joined I got as a bonus the possibility to take part in a seminar in Las Vegas for free. Bear in mind that the initial price for joining PPC Classroom 1.0 was around $500. When you get a bonus like that, you somehow expect that what you get is the possibility to network and the great content of the seminar. Living in Europe, and not having the means to travel to Las Vegas to take part, the least I had expcted was to get the DVD recordings from the seminar for free. So, when I found that members in my situation would have to pay to get the recordings, I got a little annoyed. I suppose the content would be worth paying for but didn't like it anyway.
              • The whole thing sometimes seemed to lack sufficently good organization. Like members once waiting for a recording of a webinar or presentation that someone thought someone else had uploaded. I also felt that available downloads could have been organized in a far more professional way. Before I left the membership after having stayed there far too long, until June/July 2008, I went through it all to make sure I had downloaded all available content for later viewing/listening. They then were in the process of preparing for PPC Classroom 2.0 and had compicated the login experience by in someway having more than one entrance. I really had a job getting to the downloads. I had to log in through one of the entrances to the main site, get into the forum, do some detective work to find a thread that explained where the downloads could now be found, follow a link in that thread that led me to an entrance where I had to log in once more, before I could finally get to the downloads. When you have people paying somewhere between $40 and $50 month after month to stay a member I think that just is not good enough.
              I think my point is;

              PPC Classroom may show great businessmanship in the sense of being able to make good money and teach others to do so, but not when it comes to organizing an having good business systems in place.

              I think that's the main reason why I've not been interested to join the second and third time around, however good the content. Maybe I'm an idiot.LOL

                I ordered PPC Classroom 2 at 9 am PST when they opened. Used credit card. No problem EXCEPT then a welcome video came up saying they would notify me by email. So it has been 30 hours and I have submitted support tickets, sent emails and called their phone ( mailbox full). Am I the only one who's paid and hasn't recieved the follow-up email yet? I don't have time to keep trying to connect. Cancelling may not be easy either.

                  Twinpeak, I'm in the same spot as you.

                  I got a further email after the video with log-in details, however, that email also stated to keep an eye out for an email that would tell me my DVD has been shipped.

                  I also checked my bank account and nothing has come out of it yet despite the email from them saying it had, so I'm really not sure anyone has any clue whats happening..

                  If anyone hears anything in regards to Brad Callen's bonuses or from PPC Classroom's support desk can you please post in here?

                  Thank you.

                    I did not like that I had to go through 4 upsales to finally order.

                    So far so good.

                    Sandra,

                    The Inner Circle is actually just the name of the new basic PPC Classroom 2.0 membership, which includes coaching calls. There isn't a special section to access. Sorry for the confusion!

                    Thanks,
                    PPC Classroom 2.0 Support

                    So now I am really confused. If

                    PPC 2.0 = Inner Circle
                    and
                    Inner Circle = $97/mo

                    then what am I getting for free? Or is this just a free trial? If so they should have just said so from the beginning instead of making a huge deal about it being free.

                    Anyway I am going to contact support about this again. If anyone has any further info please share.

                    One more thing, what "coaching calls" is support talking about did I miss something?

                    Thanks so much!

                      Didn't they say something about the membership to PPCC being infinite etc, even when the membership for the other thing was over? Hmmm, please let us know what they say afterward. This is weird lol.

                      So now I am really confused. If

                      PPC 2.0 = Inner Circle
                      and

                      They've got to be kidding! Why would anyone pay $97 per month for what is already there??? I've already gone through the 9 modules, some of it basic stuff. Why would anyone pay to just see those 9 modules plus the occassional webinar every month? Especially since somewhere I read said that you'd always be able to access the basic info.

                      What is strange is that the modules kept referring to future advanced information modules beyond the 9. So I'm pretty shocked at what the support staff told you, unless they are new and don't know what they are talking about. The sales letter said this:

                      "A 30 Day "Free Look" at the PPC Inner Circle - The advanced 7 figure super affiliate secrets I won't see anywhere else. After 30 days, it's only $97 per month and I can cancel anytime from my PPC Classroom student page. "

                      There aren't any "advanced 7 figure super affiliate secrets you won't see anywhere else" in the 9 basic modules. So this is either false advertising, or the support person just didn't know what they were talking about. It would be nice if one of them came over here and clarified this. I'm sure they don't want massive cancellations next month.

It will take atleast 7 days, like longer than that, to get through all of the bonus tickets, as there are now over 3500 tickets directly related to bonuses. We have 3 help desk staff. It takes about 5 minutes to set up 1 customer's bonuses. We're repsonding to them in the order they were received. If you submitted a ticket, rest assured that it will be answered as soon as it's the next ticket in line. Thanks for your patience.

                      I was suspecting something along the lines of the above was happening.

                      Can you please clarify what it is we are supposed to be submitting to your support desk? The only thing resembling a receipt I recieved doesn't really verify that it was bought through your link.

                      It would be easier if I could update my current ticket with the correct information to prevent having to go back and forth with your support desk.

                      Thanks for your help.

                      UPDATE: PPC Classroom 2.0 is NOT free, this is a free 30 trial. And just to clarify PPC Classroom = Inner Circle. Please see responses from support below.

                      They really should have just said it was free trial from the beginning.

                      __________________________________________________ _____

                      When I signed up I had selected the trial of Inner Circle. How do I access that? I don't see it listed in my order history page so I hope that it went through ok. Thanks.

                      To get access to those things go to Home : PPC Classroom 2.0 | Discover the Secrets of a $2.4 Million PPC Affiliate and login using your email address xxxxx @ gmail.com, and whichever password you chose when you signed up.

                      The webinars and mastermind groups should start in about a week. You will gain access to the forum 30 days after the date you initially joined. Initially you get access to 9 Modules, and each month that you remain a member of PPC Classroom 2.0 after that, you will receive a new Module of information. in addition to the PPC Classroom 2.0 Inner Circle you singed up to be a member of Niche Detective Club. The first month of both of these is free. The monthly fee for the Inner Circle after the first month is $97, and the monthly fee for Niche Detective Club is $19.97. I hope this helps clarify!

                      Thanks,
                      PPC Classroom 2.0 Support

                        If that's the case, then I'll just send the DVD back, request a refund, and never even attempt this stuff. I thought we got PPC 2.0 for free and the trial was for something else.

                        EDIT:

                        Ok, I did some checking around, and it looks like you get the first 9 modules, all the bonuses, and the DVD for life. If you stay in for 97, you get more modules and the rest of the stuff. Looks like I overreacted a bit. I think the support people confused you.

                        After 30 days, if you cancel the Inner Circle, do you still get access to the 9 modules but NOT the software? PPC Classroom 2.0's 9 modules minus the software tools worth it? What I'm trying to say is can you produce good results($$$?) with only the 9 modules and NO software? Are the software tools neccessary for PPC to function at 100% of its potential?

                        So does that mean I need to send an email to support to cancel the $97 /mo fee AND I need to cancel this Niche Detective Club thing too?

                          I think they said there was a cancellation link on the PPC Classroom page. I guess you would have to do it for both of them aswell.

    Why doesnt everyone ignore bad advice?

    Anyway since its only $9.95 to join (not free) as you have to buy that DVD for $9.95 I will join.

    My question is, if these guys are making so much money why bother setting up PPC classroom???

    Stupid P.O.S.!!!!

    I've tried 7 times now and the stupid thing still won't take my card(s). Why can't I just pay with paypal?

    If I get charged 7 times and have to cancel 7 times I'm going to be fried!

    So far this is more like ppc clASSroom 0.0

        Anyone still having the same problem?

    Be sure to check your credit/debit card records. I got charged 3 times!

    It makes you wonder that with all the money they're making why they can't find
    the expertise to put this together glitch free.

    Plus, the OTO, upsell crap was waaayyy overdone.

    I guess the take away is it's a very good, real world example of what not
    to do. :=)

          I think #1 and #2 are the most valuable by far. They are very good, useful pieces of proven software. I already own both of them plus his directory submitter and nothing else he's offering interests me much, so I'm considering Mark Ling's bonus instead.

          If you don't own SEO Elite and KE then Brad's bonuses are great.

    If I'm not mistaken, they do had some issue with their server too in their initial launch and first few hours, and some orders goes wrong.

    But then they have the problem settled in the next few hours.

    I think you should try reorder in the next few hours just to be save.

    I've also got through with my AMEX now. Tried checking the box to say I was interested in the videos as suggested by someone above and that seemed to finally do the trick. I didn't have to actually take the upsell, just had to tick the box that said I was interested. And . . . my emails have arrived. Now I'm going to get a cup of coffee and explore :-)

    These days I rarely pay for any continuity membership except by Paypal. Experience has shown me that it's a great pain canceling further payments when the merchant has your credit card details as hostage. In many instances, just finding out HOW to cancel is a real challenge. Then you have to go through the process of making a request through their system and hoping it gets processed in time.

    In 30 days PPC C2 will probably have thousands of new members trying to cancel their membership - all at the same time - and all being processed by their support system.

    This is not a criticism of the product as that is a re-release of PPC C2 and I'm familiar with the content - it was released at a cheaper price last year. The higher membership price evidently makes it easier to get joint venture partners.

    The modules, templates, graphics, etc are very good, as are the webinars.

    Most big time internet marketers have to do that kind of upsell offers just because they contributed their list to the product. It's fair for them and furthermore, those offers are great offers that doesn't come cheap at a regular price. I look forward to such bonus offers or deep discounts sometimes because it's worth it.

    Though the clicking can be a hassle but not too much

    PPC Classroom is awesome and I've watched a similar interview with Anik and Mehta a few months back but this time they beefed it up with some cool graphics and more content.

    Very good advice. I follow Perry Marshall's guide and I still learned a lot from Amit. It's worth learning their blueprint. Very thorough and straight to the point.

    Hey guys, to answer your questions:

    1. Most are sending a receipt or order number through to us when they submit a ticket, so my guess is there is one that you would get via email? I'm not sure. Some, however, have just been copying and pasting the "thank you email" along with the last 4 digits of their credit card number to us, and we've cross referenced it.

    2. Thanks Dan :-) I guess the easiest way would just be to visit one of our sites and signup for the mini-course that appears in the popover when you visit the page.

    Thanks everybody.

    PPC Classroom 2.0 = 9 Core Modules + Landing Page Templates + DVD Interview with Amit (you get this for price of shipping & handling $7 in US, $10 International) - originally when ppc classroom 2.0 was released in oct 08 people paid $77 to receive this without the DVD Interview

    PPC Inner Circle = Basic Monthly membership includes one advanced module per month + webinar + bonuses + tools + forum access. (this is $97 a month)

    VIP Membership includes all of Inner circle plus VIP Mastermind and Q&A Sessions + VIP bonuses + VIP Forum + one on one support ticketing system ($397 a month)

    if you are just starting out or have intermediate skills in PPC the 9 core modules will teach you every aspect of ppc affiliate marketing.

    if you pick up the ppc inner circle, the advanced modules are well worth it. You get to look at how Amit approaches his campaigns and how he scales it up.

    if you need one on one support and additional advanced strategies then go for the vip membership.

      Ahhh, that makes much more sense, thanks for clearing this all up. Shouldn't we get an extra module seeing that we have a 30 day trial, or are they cutting us short there ?

    well as a beginner, I can tell you I have learned quite a bit already. What I haven't seen is where somebody actually helps you. I have followed the videos, etc and setup campaigns, but am just a little confused as to what comes next.

      That's why they want you to pay $97 for their inner circle.

    Not really. There is a lot of really good information that you can apply right away. If you have any experience at all it seems like you will run with it immediately.

      If you join you get

      ..."Get Started" DVD is Free...
      ...PPC Classroom is Free...
      ...The LIVE Event ticket is free...
      ...The $2M templates are free...

      Out of all of this, you really are paying....

      DVD cost $10
      PPC classroom $97 / Month
      Free Ticket $$ Airfare to Live Event
      $2M templates for free - What the.. Is this $2 Million Dollars worth of templates? How can you put a figure like that on 'Templates'
      I watched a 'free' webinar on their website which claimed that they would give away amazing secretes, but all they did was show pictures of holiday destinations and how great it is being rich.

      In other words more ammo to get you to sign up and make them 'rich' .

      Im sure there will be good info on that site, but I cant see how its worth $97 per month and they have way to many mis-leading claims and false advertising a Free PPC Classroom.

    For anyone that signed up the first day, the bonuses that they are now giving are accessible on your home page by clicking the Partners Bonuses link on the left nav panel. Most of these require an opt-in and a couple are free trials only.

    Right Chris, but you failed to mention the 11 bonuses that PPC has that does NOT require opt in (straight download). I'm surprised (I shouldn't be) at how much complaining is going on here lol...

    You pay $6/$10 for a DVD - you get access to their training modules, a *bunch* of recorded webinars, 11 bonuses straight download, partner bonuses not all of which you have to opt in, half a dozen or more tools.. I am in no way affiliated with PPC Classroom - just stating the facts. I know because I purchased and I'm staring at it!

    The only thing I'm perturbed about is the fact that the forum isn't accessible for 30 days (upon which the trial is up), but hey it's not enough of a deterrent for me to not even evaluate this for a mere $10.

    PPC Classroom Review

    Hi Everyone,

    I think this forum is awesome and am enjoying everything I read so far. I am relatively new to PPC marketing, but I do have some buyer experiences to share.

    I purchased PPC Classroom and completed the 9 course module and quizes. I found it to be a tremendous asset. It's already saved me thousands because I would have potentially lost of my Adwords account on Google. Even when you complete the modules, you will have to revisit them often when you set up your campaigns. It will take a newbie like me time to master. I am not concerned with Free bonuses nor tools as much as practical knowledge that I can apply.

    No one wants a lousy mechanic who has great tools working on their car.
    Learn to be the best mechanic...

    1) I say that I purchased PPC Classroom, because I bought allot of the videos in advanced. After seeing the additional bonuses they added for free...Yes I am wondering if I should have waited, because some appear to be duplicates of what I bought. But...I have to look at them to really know. However, I do see the value that the free side of the course offered. Why...

    Because I bought "PPC Domination" and I feel I got...Well I don't want to say. But PPC Classrooms Free tutorials teaches you a ton more than PPC Dominations complete course! Lesson learned and I wouldn't recommend anyone going that route.

    2) PPC Classroom already saved me thousands because I would have gotten my account closed by Google if I did not take advantage of the first call audio in the "Webinar and Downloads" area. Why...

    Again after following the video I started with The Niche Detective club and wanted to do my own keyword research along with my own click bank product that I wanted.

    So I was doing keyword searches for WII Downloads and Movies Download products that I found on Click Bank because they had extremely high Gravity with close to 90% of sales coming from affiliates. Those were my first two choicees...Then I learned from Amit that Google shuts down any account that promotes pier to pier downloads and he pointed out my first two choices! AAARGH..I would have been Jacked by Google.

    I am sure that most of you know how hard it is to get support from google on line when you make a error. It's not fun and they just give you links to hundreds of others who have the same problem, with no solution or feed back. So right there PPC Classroom has saved me thousands.

    3) I almost forgot...I am also a member of another MLM company that charges $297 for a mutilple PPC ad posting software. I bought that too. Only to find out through
    PPC Classroom that I could have done the same thing using their format with a macro attachment to Excel...FREE

    Conclusion...I just found out as a newbie who thought he new a bit about PPC, that I actually no nothing and have spent near a thousand for tools and knowledge that PPC Classroom is giving me for free...And if they are offering ME that much value for free, I believe that they must be offering tons more value for the $97 a month. But, like I said, I'm just a newbie. So for me and thousands of othe newbies, so far I would give PPC Classroom 5 stars after what I have learned in just a few days.

    Of course, I am not going in this with the mindset to just quit before the 30 days. I will give it a chance and post honest feedback. It's my opinion that many who go into something with the mentality to quit will not have any success anyway, so why even join or take the free trial. Just a newbie opinion. Hope some of you found value with my experience

    CREDIT CARD ISSUES

    ps...I did experience credit card issues as my debit card was declined 3 times. My issue was that I was using the "Firefox" Browser. When I used "Internet Explorer", my debit card was accepted with no problem. Hope that helps. (*_*)

      Hello Everyone

      Maybe it's just me but everything online is geared to make money. The tricks is to get you in and keep you wanting more. If one searches through all the material one would find that all it is a catch to get money from you. The thrill of making money is big business. People just don't see it till it is too late then they say Darn it by then the person or operation has bank the cash and moved on to the next project for sucking cash out of there list of suckers. Again any formula that worked today may not work tommorrow so I'll just sell the formula today and cash in on the fact that everyone else are just now finding out about this formula. They actually have seminars were people who pay large fees to sign disclosure forms to not public tell anybody about the next great formula to cash in on.

      Bottom line the intergrity of the system has to be exploited and I know the best method and no I am not selling a secert to anybody or trying to get people in to upsell. I just network with intention of helping so there is no link or blog to got to.


      My point if everyone looks at the system we use we can beat the junk out of it.

        You're kidding, right?


        All the formulas are not working, but your ghost is?

        Poor gal,,,

        Just a note, you're here on the Warriors forum, not fools forum, nobody here haven't heard or passed through GDI, I myself heard about it may be 3 years ago, if you're new to it and starting to promote it, I advice you to drop your "old ghost" and move on, this system worked only to some level for people at the top who were entered to the system at the very beginning, but after that it turned to be just a failed MLM scheme, even the ws domains turned to be a big failure, it never gained the reputation or the weight of a top domain, buying a ws domain is just a waste of time,

        Surf this forum well and you'll find much better ways to make money than trying to promote something that old on forums,

          No I'm not kidding and as Far As GDI I have been using it in varouis ways and making some money from it also it just so happens I am in the middle of another run and I had switched it over to the company page until my next program is finish and ready to go public.As far as the Warriors if you will notice when I joined you will see That I have been around for quite some time not just last month. Watching over the years I have seen things come and go and this forum has been a tremendous help to my online career that I know what works and what don't. What I have done is made enough money from all the wisdom of the info From the Warriors that I no longer need to hock my wares in such a fashion that traps people into a bill. People really make money with me and are givin the choice to pay me if they want no "30 day" stuff and trust me they pay me. It is true when you help someone get what they want they will also help you. So if you have to get people by trapping then they will feel trapped if you show them and it works no stings attached they feel indebted to you and will gladly pay you what they feel. For instance a Young women made a large amount of money from what we worked on together and decided to share her good fortune with me. I refuse a large sum that she offered because I have my own and just excepted her gesture as her way of saying thank you. So I know What I am doing Period.

            I've taken the time to read all the comments and didn't see a need to post anything else as most of my thoughts have been posted by others, with one exception:

            I wanted to get a jump on the Inner Circle cancellation and got messages back from Anik's support group that it all can be managed online. They even provided a link. Here is the message I received,

            "Just to confirm, you, the user, can cancel all recurring portions of your PPC Classroom membership by first logging in and then visiting this link:
            http://www.ppcclassroom.com/member/membership/manage/

            You can start and stop the recurring portions of your membership using this. If further assistance is required please let us know.

            Thanks very much,

            Unfortunately, when I click on the link, it says "Manage Subscription Options will be available soon!!"

              I have just cancelled my PPC Classroom 2.0 subscription for both the basic membership and the Niche Detective Club.

              Just need to go to "Edit Profile" and then "Manage Subscription". From there u will be able to stop your subscribed memberships. Hope this helps.

              There was an offer to downgrade the membership to PPC Academy for $29.97/mo when u try to cancel the membership. Apparently from what I read the only difference to Inner Circle is the removal of the forum access.

              What do u guys think of this PPC Academy?

                This is because we switched help desks from PerlDesk to Kayako, which is much faster. We switched so we could respond to these bonus tickets faster...

                      Hey Brad,
                      I am a real big fan man. Love SEO elite really helping me out..

                      Thanks heaps for your link for PPC, I did signup, and they have a decent enough product, I have opted to cancel as I wasn't overly happy with the audio quality - not a big deal.

                      But just letting you know I have unsubscribed from their newsletter after cancelling about 4 times now and the emails keep coming,

                      If you or someone can PM me with who to follow up with?
                      Just wanna get off their list.

                      Cheers,
                      ADSL Geek.

    Despite the false/confusing sales letter, I have joined and so far it seems very, very good. Im up to module 4 of 9. The information within the modules is quite clear, and he explains why he does things a certain way and not just how. There is no doubt my PPC is going to improve from this course - even if I stop at module 9.

      Hi BidMarket,

      Niche Detective consists of 3 markets a month, that Amit believes to be very hot. He goes in detail on how he did his research to come up with his reasons as to why he chose a particular niche...And how he did his research. Still I believe that many of the keywords on the list he provides are very competitive and high CPC.

      As Amit says, your max bid should only be 1% of your product payout. Allot of his keywords are pretty expensive bids

      I use his Niche Detective to see if I come up with similar keywords doing my own research along side Amits.

      When you finish with Module 9...Be sure to watch Adrienne Devitas method of keyword research under the "recent webinars tab". That lady is Awesome on how to use FREE tools the right way. She will teach you ways to get 1000's of competitive keywords that have a low cpc for people on a budget!

      This Training is Sweet!!!

        thank you for the quick reply. Obviously coming up with a niche will be the hardest part. Have you found any others to be decent? Have you looked at nichebot? or niche rocket?

          bid

          Working on a niche right now! Just learned how to do "Framing" techniques to check if the market is hot. It's a Freakin Cool technique!!!...

          I am currently using Devitas method for chosing niches on Clickbank that have between a gravity of 30~100 as the one's that Amit suggests have extremely high gravity and may be saturated. I am going to test the market first, before I do tons of work on creating a landing page. That would be allot of work, if the market was bad.

          It's exciting yet SCARY! LOL. I'm still a newbie, but they sure are teaching me a ton. Going in with the mentality of whatever I spend in this first month, is soley for learning.

    Can't wait to make it to prosperity too!!! After learning about Affiliate marketing, who the heck wants to waste so much time in MLM programs and broken downlines.

    I'm still not 100% convinced that you can still access PPC Classroom after the 30 days if you cancel Inner Circle.

    I submitted a support ticket to find out on 2.26 and they have not responded yet. All my other requests were answered by the next day, but who knows.

    Anyway, I plan on staying for at least another month to check out the forum. Plus with all the bonuses I think its worth $97, at least for one month.

    Question for all of you....have you seen this WSO? Please let me know your thoughts?

      I believe your suspicion is correct-- you won't be able to access it. The $97 a month is the cost of the PPC Inner Circle, of which the forum is only a part. In other words the $97 a month is not the cost to access the forum, it's what you need to pay to have access to the whole shebang.

      This was explained in an e-mail that they sent out yesterday:
      I know a lot of you have been asking:

      "Amit, this all looks GREAT, but what's
      the PPC Inner Circle all about?"

      Well, first I should let you know that
      your first month of PPC Inner Circle is
      free (minus the forum which opens
      up after 30 days).
      However, this post by Shravnan on page 3 would seem to indicate otherwise:

      I guess the only way to really know for certain is to cancel and see what happens.

        On the sales page it says:

        • The astonishing DVD where Amit and Anik share the recipe for PPC/Affiliate Marketing supremacy.

        • Lifetime Access to the renowned PPC Classroom 2.0 and all updates for life!

        • A 30 Day "Free Look" at the PPC Inner Circle - The advanced 7 figure super affiliate secrets I won't see anywhere else. After 30 days, it's only $97 per month and I can cancel anytime from my PPC Classroom student page.

        • 6 Landing Page Templates proven by millions of dollars in testing!

        • One seat to PPC Classroom LIVE with a speaker line-up that earns over $17.3 MILLION a year on the Internet!
        Notice how the 30 Day "Free Look" and the Lifetime Access is separated. This would lead me to believe, if you did cancel for some reason, you would still have access.

        @Brad: I got my bonus and everything, so I'm sure he's legit o.0

      I think you may be very dissapointed if you hand over your $97 mainly to gain access to the forums! As a current ppc classroom member I can tell you that it is very quiet in there, especially compared to the warrior forums. Lots of newbies asking questions and some threads asking where all the success stories are, another one complaining that the forums are dead...

      There was a post today in response to the complaints which promised that things will improve:
      "Amit has recently selected expert coaches and now basic members will also receive expert coaching from VIP coaches in the basic member's forum. These coaches have made hundreds of thousands of dollars with PPC and Affiliate Marketing, and follow Amit's expert strategies.

      You will see lot more activity in basic member's forum now. "
      As for the access if you cancel - the free trial was explained to current members as follows:
      "Basic Student price ( Inner Circle ) will go up to $97/month
      VIP Student price will go up to $397/month

      Yes it's **free** for new member's for the first month (without forum access) but the basic charge will be $97/month for all new members."
      So from that I would guess no payment means no access (to anything) as you would have cancelled your membership?

      Hope that helps.

      This course contradicts itself so many times it's just absurd.

      I went through all the modules, got even more confused about PPC, and tried to cancel. That was 3 days ago and still haven't had my ticket answered.

      Awesome DZ!

      That should help everyone. In addition to that, you do NOT have to make 1000 different landing pages. You would only need to start out with two for "Search" and a handful for "Content Networks"

      "Search Network"=would be when someone types your "Keyword(S) in google and the PPC ads shows on the right side. You only need two landing pages to start out with. This is to split test them and see which is better. Then you tweak the Landing pages till you get the results you want. If nothing happens after long a time of quality testing, trash the campaign. So when you are STARTING out with search, You could have a 1000+ Keyword Ads, and only need Two landing pages.

      "Content Networks"=When someone types a keyword on content sights like i.e Ezine articles.com: related articles will appear. Around the articles are google ads, hopefully yours. Here is where you would need more Landing pages based on Theme. So if you marketed for example something on depression, You would theme them. such as women with depression, Male depression, postpartum depression, etc. Each theme would have its own related landing page...And as Amit suggests, 20 to 50 related keywords for each Theme. The amount of themes you chose for a product, is up to you.

      Since I'm a newbie, before I wast time with any landpages, I am going to test the market with "Direct Linking" first. The best way to do that is by using the "Framed"
      techniques that Amit gives in detail. Then if I see results, I will incorporate landing pages.

      There is one flaw that I believe I see in how he organized the keywords to the headlines. I wrote a support ticket about it and will give feedback upon answer.

      PPC marketing is not for everyone and can not be mastered in one day or a few months for that matter. I learned that part...FAST. I guess that's why they named the course PPC Classroom. That is why I am sticking around and will treat it like a semester class. I look at it as being a regular priced college course.

      I have tons of questions to ask the forum leaders, that can not be answered in the free section

    I feel that it is geared towards both Newbies to advanced. Seems like everyone can benefit from this, if you are willing to invest some time and patience. I consider myself a newbie to this style of PPC. I have done ok with PPC prior, but found out from this course, that I really knew very little.

    Going to test my first batch of ads using this system today. I don't expect fireworks either. Just being realistic. There is so much to learn

    Yeah I don't think I'm ready to develop a few thousand landing pages.

    In his video he used the same landing page for all his 500+ adgroups. But... He also said google only likes ONE URL, still bid confused....

      Do yourself a huge favor and buy SpeedPPC. That stuff they show with the spreadsheets and DigDB and all that will make you crazy. SpeedPPC does all of that with just a few clicks.

      I am fairly new to CPA and I can create a 1000+ separate ad groups in under 10 minutes with SpeedPPC.

      I dare someone to try and argue that SpeedPPC isn't worth every single penny. I even think they offer a free trial.

      Best Regards,

      P.S. [Disclosure] My signature will take you to a landing page and if you buy SpeedPPC through that link I will get a commission but that is not why I am promoting the product.

          SpeedPPC is offered free for 60 days as a PPC Classrom 2.0 bonus, and even if you decided to grab it, you'll pay a discounted price ( 50% I guess) for the advanced version!!

            Not True...they (PPC Classrom) stepped up to the plate and listened to all the concerns. They've hired more coaches and are actively in the forums answering all questions.

            These are not incompetent PPC coaches too. I was on the webinar this week with PPC classroom... they introduced all the coaches and was very impressed with the background and resume of these PPC marketers.

            I was soo impressed with all of these coaches that they some manage millions of dollars for corporate accounts to some coaches making s00 much money that I'm not going to reveal because some of you guys are not going to believe what I say anyway.

            As far as the forum activities....they answered all my questions.

            They have a dedicated coach for technical support like php, scripting, or anything related to software.

            They have a dedicated coach for strategy.

            They have a dedicated coach for set-up.

            They have dedicated coach for Q and A.

            We've been getting personal Q and A monthly with Amit himself.

            We've been getting personal caoching monthly w/Adrian who's been receiving rave reviews with her 1st rate coaching and made some nice money in the last four years.

            I can go on and on and on.

            This is just my personal experience with PPC and no way am I affiliated or directly conected with PPC classroom.

            In fact Im sure some people canceled; Im glad I stuck around since October of 2008...

            PPC Classroom has stepped up to the plate, Adjusted, and made positive changes.

              I appreciate that new coaches have been hired etc but I was referring to the situation from October 08 up until now when the forum has been (and still is) very quiet and there are a number of complaints in the forum from members (many who have since cancelled) about being ignored. Currently Active Users: 17 (14 members and 3 guests)
              Most users ever online was 260, 11-19-2008 at 07:51 PM.

              Granted, PPC Classroom have acknowledged the problems and appear to be addressing them - how this works out in practice when the forums are opened to the new members remains to be seen. I am still a member as I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. But I was also pointing out that once people paid their $97 and gained access to the forums they would not find the vast amounts of information posted there they MAY be expecting as the forum has been very quiet.

                I've used PPC Classroom 1 a while ago and found it pretty good as it gives fairly actionable steps to take which work.

                Also, from what I understand there's not much you can lose by becoming a user of PPC Classroom 2.

                  Well, You can loose a lot by their lousy "easy cancelling buttons" you cant find ! Nothing against their sales pitch ! But please make users a simple way to cancel if they wish ! To me a BH way to make it more difficult for cancel it ! The same goes for the mispelling in your signature. It looks you are a Pro for sure ! Would be instantly draw to your lousy offer ! LOL !

    Brad Callen retracted his bonus offer while I awaited
    a response to my ticket request for clearer instructions
    for proper submission for the bonus offer - which was
    very unclear in his original email. PPC classroom
    didn't send out a receipt #until several days after
    the order so compliance with his stated terms was
    basically thwarted.

    I canceled PPC Classroom. Sour experience.

      I retracted my bonus offer? You're kidding right? We gave out over 4500 bonuses and spent 12 hours a day for 6 straight days giving out bonuses. I even gave out bonuses to people that submitted tickets 3 days PAST the deadline. I was in the desk helping my staff. Trust me, there were ALOT of "money making tasks" I could have been doing, but it was important for me to get bonuses to our users as fast as possible.

      Almost every single ticket that was submitted included a "copy and paste" of the thank you email they received, along with the last 4 digits of their credit card. To be honest, we basically gave out bonuses to anyone that submitted a ticket by the deadline, and didn't check to make sure "we" got credit for the referral. (I'm sure I got taken advantage of quite a bit, but stuff like that happens)

      I have no idea what happened in your case, but I can only assume it was some sort of misunderstanding or something. You can pm me and I'll give you your bonuses even though you canceled ppc classroom immediately and I get absolutely nothing out of it.

        I must be one of ones who slipped thru the cracks, because I still have not heard from your support people after replying to their request for proof of purchase 4 days ago. And I purchased and requested the bonus very early. Bogdan Chirila is your support person who wrote me 4 days ago. I replied immediately. Still nothing.

        P.S. The PPCC program is outstanding. Very thorough and detailed.

        Brad
        I submitted a ticket for the bonuses but at that time i didn't know my order number, because i have never recieved a receipt from ppc classroom. I got a quick reply from Nancy Fahey and she told me that she needed the order number to be able to send me the bonuses. I logged in to my ppc account and from the account settings or something, i don't remember now, i saw my order number. Replied to her back along with the order number, email, last four digits of the card that i used for signing up. 2 hours later i got another reply from Nancy along with the download links to my bonuses.

        I don't know Brad Callen, i am not his affiliate but i saw that he is a man of his word. I opted in to his newsletter and never got one single upselling email for a crappy product from him. He and Mark Ling are my favorite internet marketers. Two thumbs up!

        As for ppc classroom: For $7 i got good info on ppc and market researching (Adrienne DeVita. She is awesome and i think just her webinars worth hundreds of dollars) plus keyword elite and seo elite. This was one of the best bangs for my buck.

        If you are a newbie or an intermediate affiliate, you should definitely check out ppc classroom. You are missing a lot if you haven't joined yet. Not only it covers the certain aspects of ppc marketing, it also covers seo and market research. If you think that searching google and counting the affiliate ads is market research, you are horribly wrong and have a lot to learn. Just my two cents...

        I bought into the DVD on day one and submitted the appropriate documentation for Brad's bonus I have followed up w/2-3 support tickets and STILL have not received Brad's bonuses.

        Frankly, the entire PPC Classroom2 launch, IMO, was an unmitigated disaster to the participants reputations. One would think that "professionals" of their ilk would know how to do a launch without all the ugly screw-ups.

        C'est la guere, I'm sure all they care about is the $$$$, not what we think!

          I think PPC Classroom is an excellent course. I had some knowledge of PPC, but learned some new things by going through the modules. It in not the one and all ppc course, but it does have some really good nuggets in it that will save you time and make your campaigns more profitable.

              True, you HAVE to take action. There's a lot of courses that are GOLDEN but only if you actually apply what you learn.

      Well, I'm not at all surprised he did. I kinda knew it was coming. IF (ONLY IF) Brad honors his words, my guess it would apply to those who stay after 30 days. He got to recoup his freebies' cost and maybe some manpower cost (as he said so here).

      Loren, I'm sorry to hear about sour experience. Now we know who not to buy from (or through) anymore.

    I think people need to stop splitting hairs over minor details on the sales page.

    Upsells from internet marketers? shocking!!

    Also, payment processes are notoriously problematic and even large corporations have issues with this kind of thing. Which is great, coz it kept me in employment for 5 years trying to fix them!

    I am always HIGHLY skeptical of these big launches but I decided to take a look anyway.

    First impressions - very impressive! The recorded webinars alone are worth signing up for. This is not just some 'guru' discussing ppc theory, it's quality, watch over the shoulder stuff.

    97/month won't make you successful at ppc but 97/mth + 500/mth (initially) for ad spend + hard work + determination might!

    my 2 cents

    Just listened to the latest webinar and was a complete waste of an hour. They said it was going to be a Q&A, there was one Q and one A - which was 'Where do I start'. The rest was introducing all the coaches and letting us hear how much $$$ they make and how they are only doing PPC coaching because they love helping people - they dont need the money.

    I really like PPC classroom 2, but that really put me off paying $97/month.

    I want to follow-up before the thread gets too dissipated.

    I don't like to waste time. I don't care for runaround either.
    I decided to give PPCclassroom a try because a very attractive
    bonus offer was on the table. Otherwise I might have ignored
    it as another hyped-up launch.

    I joined within a couple of hours of seeing the promo. Then
    it was clear to me that the material PPC Classroom was sending
    out was not going to make it easy for Brad's people to handle
    the bonus issue. I didn't get any real receipt or customer
    number. Confusion, as usual.

    Rather than falling over myself to try to redeem a bonus
    based on incomplete information I submitted a ticket requesting
    more information. After a couple of days I received a reply
    that I was to include a receipt number for the DVDs, my
    name, email address, and the bonuses I wanted.

    Seemed clear. I still hadn't got my receipt though.

    Then it came. A number was sent when PPC Classroom
    emailed me about my DVD being shipped.

    Now I had the information I needed to log a ticket with
    all the information to make it as easy as possible for
    Mr. Callen's people to handle the bonus issue with
    minimal time wasted and confusion. I like to be
    considerate because I know launches are crazy. So
    I compiled my information and sent it off through
    the help desk as instructed. Neat and clear.

    The reply to my ticket was this:
    "Hello,

    I'm sorry but as stated by Brad's final email sent on Friday,
    February 27th, the offer ended on 3/3/2009 at 12:00am EST "

    I received no email from Mr. Callen on the 27th.

    All I did was request and await further instructions and then
    followed them when I had the information I needed to complete
    them. I thought I was being considerate.

    ###

    I looked over PPC Classroom. It looks like a nicely put-together
    product. I don't think it meets my present interests because
    it's focus is really on a certain type of affiliate marketing. I
    don't know what the term for it is, but it's the sort of thing where
    you run dozens of campaigns and test a lot of niches, not something
    where you apply your own interests much. You just see what
    people like to buy and work the margins until you see profits.
    Strikes me as a little like Forex trading in concept.

    ###

    Brad, I appreciate your offer. I really do. I'll have to think on it.

    Admittedly this was all a misunderstanding. I do try to just follow
    instructions with these things. In this case it wasn't simple to
    see what to do so I waited, to my eventual disappointment, for
    things to get clearer.

      But you still have to test keywords etc. I think there's a lot more in PPC classroom than throw at the wall and see what sticks strategies.

      Hello all,

      Being a newbie myself I must confess I got "dragged" by these IM Gurus sales page and end up signing for the "free" DVD offer. Upsales after upsales offers I must confess I was upset !
      I believe the materials have some value but what piss me off is the total lack of clear cancelling links to the Inner circle access after one month !
      Apparently I was able to "stop" the future billings today after google for half an hour and finding this thread.
      To me the bottomline regarding these shady succesful IM gurus is :
      IF YOU ARE MAKING MILLIONS AS YOU SAID WHY WOULD YOU SHARE WITH EVERYBODY !
      Use your commom sense and think : By any chance do you see Warren Buffet's sales pages around the Internet willing to share his secrets to become the next Wall Street mogul for $97 a month ?
      I am more inclined to go BH first since these gurus are all BH in my opinion !

        I have been a member of PPC Classroom for two months and I don't think it is worth the money - period. You people must have more money than sense!

        $97.00 USD a month is alot of money for pretty basic PPC marketing information.

        I was pretty hopeful when I signed up but I should have listened to my inner senses when the sign up method became a 'would you like fries with that!" add on. (Like Go Daddys cheap hosting - screw them - You want a staright deal go to FatCow) No sooner did I join we start to get all the crap about get GCD, Speed PPC, Spy Fu and on and on it goes. - sign up for this special offer I got you. Then some jerk rings me here in Australia - do I want personal coaching from Amik $5000 USD. Yeah sure, have my wife and kids too!

        We have had a range of super gurus affiliates offering their secrets recently all with recurring monthly fees. What a clever scam to suck newbies dry- got any money left for your PPC campaign?
        Always the same sales crap formula. Big struggle with PPC, the enlightening seceret discovery Google doesn't know about, (Ha Ha Ha), that leads them to millions overnight and now the generous loving *******s want to share their secret with you for just $97.00 recurring monthly.

        Take my advice everyone on this forum. You keep that money in your account and forget those Google CashDetectiveShadowAssainProfitPullerPutItAllInYou rBankAccount Offers, Classrooms and Universities. You won't have missed out anything that would have added one cent of profit to what you are currently doing, and one day you'll thank me for this great advice. Don't be suckered by this rubbish.

        Today I will gracefully bow out of PPC Classroom. Got bigger better things to do.

      I couldn't phrase it better myself. After the first support ticket they gave me a wrong e-mail adress. After the 2nd support ticket they gave me the same and still wrong e-mail adress. After the 3rd support ticket I now have an e-mail adress that works but neither a reply nor my bonus yet.

      Besides information are very basic. The "tests" are ridiculous multiple choice test in the format (stupid answer A, ridiculous answer B or obviously right answer C)

      However I must admit they have really great bonuses that are worth the free trial month.

      Hi all,

      I have not read all 5 pages of review/comments on PPC Classroom. But I just want to share my experience, as I was a member to the PPC Classroom 2.0.

      I would say it is a good resource for Pay per click advertising program. When I first joined (for USD77), I thought was very-very affordable, considering all the offers, and bonuses (yeah, great sale pitch). But it did not stop there. You will be offered few upsell offers, which I think are the real things are. Because it will cost you much more for those upsell products. But to be fair that s not real problem, because everyone else is doing the same.

      One thing that I dont really like is that, soon after I joined (during the second month if I m not mistaken, they started to offer you things like platinum membership, vip membership etc. This time around, it really cost you expensively. This is when, as a normal member (who still got to pay monthly fees), you will you are totally neglected. As a vip member you will be entitled to different forums, different mentor etc. And those offers for the 'next-great-package' doesnt stop. It is going on and on....

      Anyway, good product.

      If you would like to cancel, click on edit profile (under profile) on the top left hand side after you log in. On the bottom right of the edit profile page click on Manage Subscription and that will take you to a page [ http://www.ppcclassroom.com/member/membership/manage/ ] showing your next billing date and a stop button on the right to cancel your membership.

    I was double billed and they seemed upset when I asked them to refund. Though they said they would - it's been 3 days now and have not posted the refund. The stuff looks pretty standard to me when I logged on - not worth it in my opinion. Perhaps I'm just upset because of the buying experience.

    I didn't get my DVD until about 30 days after I paid. I couldn't get the bonuses either from Brad Callen (though I haven't tried to hard as I thought this whole thing was flakey).

    I hope I'm wrong.

    PPC classroom got a lot of stuffs so it would take a lot of time to read, research and implement. Anyway, very details.

      When you log-in at the left navigation bar their is a button called bonuses and another one called "super bonuses", "special bonuses" or s.th. like that. In my opinion the latter one has the real cool bonuses like PPC Bully and Speed PPC trial membership.

      However, concerning the GCD bonus, I am really disappointed. After the whole yes, no, mail to blabla...I got the two e-mail within 2 minutes. One said you'll get your bonus soon. The other one said we're sorry but your not eligible cause you didn't buy via our link. Meanwhile I received the 25 bonus niches. Every niche repoprts contains 5 pages.

      page 1 - cover page
      page 2 - always the same 3 lines why they choose it and a screenshot of GCD
      page 3 and 4 - screenshot of 2 landing pages
      page 5 - legal disclaimer

      So for all of you, who missed out on this bonus, don't be too frustrade.

      Cheers.

    I tried PPC Classroom 2. It was too limited for me, but I'm sure it will be okay for complete newbies.

    I did not care for the mountains of upsell emails that flooded my mailbox, though. I wound up optig out of everything just to get some peace.

    Cancellling the recurring billing was simple, I just logged in to my PPCC2 account, clicked on "Edit my subscriptions", and canceled from there. As far as I know, there has been nothing billed.

    PPCC2 is okay, but it is what it is and I wouldn't get too excited over it.

      I have been a member of PPC Classroom since October and recently started reviewing PPC Kahuna.

      PPC Classroom is a fairly solid program. But I get more out of the Webinars and Case Studies than anything else. These are worth their weight in gold. PPC Kahuna is more of a tools based service, but they are better at teaching you how to use Landing SITEs, not just Landing Pages to boost quality score and make money from PPC.

      It's all about testing. There is no magic bullet with PPC. You have to find a minimum of 3 products, create 3 sets of landing pages for each, do 3 campaigns for each set based off the same keywords, and then after you run the ads for 2 weeks or less (depending on keywords and cost) you will see what works and what doesn't.

      There are a bunch of sub-tasks involved with what I just went over, but the bottom line is, regardless of what new tool comes out on the market, to succeed with PPC you have to WORK!

    PPc is not for everybody just like MLM is not for everybody.
    The idea is to find the business which vibrates with your real self. I think PPC vibrates more for me than any other Internet business, and Its worth $120 pm.[$97+$19]
    You can easily earn than much in one month.
    If you cant then cancel it. Anyway this amount is much cheaper than what i used to invest in stocks. BTW Warren Buffet is my Inspiration for all business activities.
    You have to take some risk in any business and PPC is no different.
    Important : Read the Millionaire mindset first; this was in the bonus section.
    You have to start thinking like a Millionaire before you make a 100 bucks.
    And for any business on the face of the planet if your thinking is not right you wont make it.

    I believe that you can cancel PPC Classroom yourself. Log into PPC Classroom and click on Edit Profile. Once you do this you should have the option to cancel your membership.

    Hope this helps.

    No product is worth anything if you do not take ACTION.

    I'm very happy with PPC Classroom 2 since I joined last year. And I have been doing PPC for over 5 years...

    There are so many things to learn and every tip or trick you learn from each marketer is well worth it.

    I'm waiting for Affiliate Funnel System to launch tomorrow. Imagine getting the master swipe file on campaigns that generate 5 to 6 figures monthly for Saj P. That's GOLD.

    You are so right NicholasP. As with any info product one needs to take action in order to profit.

    I got PPC classroom as well (actually because of brad's bonus :-)) and was sure that I will cancel. However, the training is pretty good. Much better than AC.
    I'm also using PPC Kahuna which I prefer over PPC Classroom mainly because of the tools. So right now I have both.

    I am on the original ppc 2.0 course and even though I am only a 1/3 of the way through the information is extremely valuable and the course is interactive. The ppc classroom course does take time, and dedication and you need to take action if you want it to work for you. You will feel like being back at college again. However, its a great learning platfrom if you are new to ppc.

      There's a couple key differences between my site and PPCC2. I'll list them here since you asked:

      1.) $49.99 per month, (That's Canadian Dollars), versus $97 USD per month for PPCC2
      2.) No Upsells Ever.
      3.) No Constant Spamming of Every JV Offer on the planet.
      4.) IF I do recommend a product, you get my commission back 100% for it. I only recommend things that I think will help my members, I'm not about milking them for more money by promoting everything else under the sun.
      5.) I have 13 moderators and my own mentor helping me answer member questions, NOT anyone who applied for the job, only experienced people who have proven themselves to me.
      6.) I will review your adwords, yahoo or msn account personally.
      7.) I give you 18 different niches/techniques to use over a 12 month period.
      8.) I believe in 10 campaigns doing $100 profit per day each FIRST, then scaling. Not searching for one or two big ones only, (its too risky that way).
      9.) I offer more tools, that I wrote personally, including, the keyword tracking system, the landing site generator, poll bot 2000, several keyword scraper programs, offer database and the most recent being the review site generator.
      10.) PPC Coach is almost 19 months old.
      11.) I have personally answered over 9,000 private messages on my forums.
      12.) I have personally answered over 14,000 emails from members.
      13.) I have personally reviewed over 1,000 member accounts.
      14.) I own my own CPA network.
      15.) My approach is all about taking action, not reading about it.
      16.) The forums, (70,000+ posts now), are very active and full of some great people who will help everyone.
      17.) I have had several members literally quit their day jobs already.
      18.) I built my site without marketing gimmicks.
      19.) I don't believe in getting adwords up and running first, then going to yahoo and msn, in fact I spent my first 6 months full time doing ONLY yahoo!
      20.) I've just recently got into doing at least 2 webinars per month.

      I am not perfect, my site is not perfect and my system is not perfect, but I try my best to make sure my members are getting the best support they can all the time.

      Bear in mind, I'm completely bias as I own the site and think it's the best thing since sliced bread. That said, there's nothing wrong with PPCC2, it has solid information and you will learn from it. You asked to compare the two, there you have it...

        What budget per day you recommend for testing with yahoo with your system? Looks like ppc requires mega cash daily.

    I don't know. I'm starting to think the SEO approach is much more profitable. I have not had one profitable campaign in 6 weeks. Between the thousands in PCC Classroom, and the thousands in GCD cloning campaigns, it all just seems to shoot itself in the foot.

    I agree w/ what someone else just posted...i wasted some cash on "testing" ppc campaigns (@ $20/day) per amit's teaching and didn't make jack...not one sale. I have since abandoned ppc 2.0, long ago got my $$ back for GCD and have scaled waaay back on PPC.

    I am digging into the SEO side of things now and am ready to work for it. I did finally find a ppc campaign that i'm not upside down on...which means i've spent $75 and made $100 (that thrills me to death...really, i'm not kidding. I'm giddy).

      Trish, you have a right to be 'giddy.' Many people never make anything in PPC. Maybe that one campaign is one that could be scaled up a bit ?

      I gave up on PPC Classroom (1) soon after joining. There was some ok material, but it wasn't even worth the $29/monthly recurring (Plus $77 initially). As mentioned previously, the upsells and JV offers made it unbareable. Personally, I believe that approach isn't productive long term. People don't like feeling as though they're being used as an ATM.

      I may give PPC Coach a try at some point.

      I think your choice in getting more into the SEO side of things is a wise move. If you get a good ranking site, or even a few pages, you can start making some money and it's always possible to incorporate a PPC campaign easily too.

        Frankly, I think PPC 2.0 is overhyped. I'm a paying member, and I do not think it is worth $97 a month for me to continue the membership as I have for the past two months. I do feel the Niche Detective portion of the membership may be worth the $19.97 since all the research has been done for you already (but don't compete in the same niches that are exposed, or you WILL lose money) and you get a good idea of what to do to find your own niche. The forum is relatively worthless, and the lessons are pretty basic. It IS a good educational membership site for a total newb who wants in on PPC know-how.

            I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing PPC2 is going the way of PPC1.

            It seems many, including the PPC2 guys have figured out they can make a quick buck with a hyped-up product launch. I guess they can, but it's the ones that have true substance that will make the most money over the long haul. I would never even look at another product from these guys, and it's not just from the PPC(1) experience...read on.

            The reason for this post, as maybe some of you know by now, the PPC2 guys have evidently taken their marketing to a new level...the telephone!!

            After I recieved, and ignored, several calls from a number I didn't recognize, I checked the message that was left, and it was someone from the PPC2 crew. I didn't return the call, but the guy called again just before this post and I took the call. I don't remember his name.

            He mentioned PPC Classroom and I told him I was no longer associated with it/them (for almost 5 months now), and he was totally surprised.

            The guy was loud, pushy sounding, and when I told him (nicely) that it really wasn't a good time because I was involved with something else at the moment, he said, 'IT'S NEVER A GOOD TIME!!'

            Ok, you called me jerk...remember ? Obviously I didn't continue long enough to find out what he was offering, nor did I care. (I assume there was an offer coming)

            I've never had to try selling anything over the phone, and I hope I never do, but if you want to know how NOT to do it, call the telemarketer at PPC Classroom or whatever the company is.

            The call was to my cell. phone, which I had previously recieved no solicitation calls on in probably 4-5 years now, just a very few SPAM text messages.

            I've got a feeling my number and information are going to find their way to many lists now.

            As I've mentioned before when posting about PPC Classroom, it wasn't a scam, and I did learn some things, but it wasn't worth the money, but that's just my opinion. Others may love it. I had read quite a bit about PPC before joining, but didn't know a lot. It's just their tactics that are a huge problem.

            They may very well be great at PPC, if so, they should take their time, put out a good solid course, and go with that. The sense I get of greed and desperation really doesn't make me feel like pulling my debit card out.

              Have to say thank you for that post jeff i joined ppc2 and wish i never to be honest, no bashing intended to ppc staff and product let me say, but one problem i did have is that i waited one solid month for my login and password after 9 emails to say cancel my free trail, they also charged me 97 dollars i have resloved this now by cancelation and i dont like the fact that you mentioned how its gone from the relams of the internet to telesales trying to rope you into accounts, so far ive had 7 different internet marketers try the same pitch,

              no bashing intended just being honest.

                Please, this is also no bashing, just a real life experience. And let others know to decide themselves.

                i also will cancel mine membership at PPC classroom 2, you have to wait too long to get answers of the real ppc classroom coaches. The first nine basic modules which are free are more then enough, once you have the basics you can find you way around here on this FREE forum just by reading/asking questions further.

                A friend of mine had VIP coaching, same problem, too long to wait on private answers. Also there are a lot of vip-coaches going away from ppc classroom, doing their own stuff etc. i mean you get somebody helping you out, you are on a good way, but then that coach leaves........

                XXXX is promoting the PPC classroom, for sure he knows his stuff, but you never see him in the forums, also not in vip answering, sometimes he releases a video. But most of the time he is busy showing the super affilate lifestyle he has...i don't think this is the way to put up a course.

                But that is mine opinion/experience. Don't get me wrong i did learn, but the way they put up the coaching is dissapointed. I will quit, from the nine free lessons you can learn enough and then hang-out on free forums!

    Please avoid naming names in this thread. This forum is supposed to be about the product. Once posters start criticizing people, it becomes unacceptable.

    Thanks.
