Internet Entrepreneurs Club
It's probably worth pointing out that the primary reason I was interested in this course is because it's a product by Chris Luck. I first became aware of Chris as a member of the Amazing Selling Machine, and it was due to the quality of his posts there (and the fact that he had more than $300k in sales within the first few months) that I pretty quickly realized this is a guy I should listen to. So, when I heard he was launching a course, I knew it was something I wanted to check out.
So, who is Chris Luck?
He's someone who has been online since the late 90s and did a very good job staying out of the spotlight quietly building businesses. The bottom line is that I've seen the quality of information he's provided in forums and it was enough to convince me that he knows what he's talking about.
What is the Internet Entrepreneurs Club?
The overriding purpose of the site is "Everything you need to succeed. All in one place". Again, this is the type of hype that I tend to gloss over, so let's take a look at the actual content:
Library | Internet Entrepreneurs Club
It's made up of 8 sections that each contain video courses, as well as various resources and a private community to complement the training.
- Facebook Empire - Master everything there is to know about Facebook
- Free Traffic - The best sources of free traffic on the Internet
- List Building - Master the art of building a list that will generate cash on demand
- Paid Traffic - Master the best sources of paid traffic on the Internet
- Reverse Engineering - Locate top competitors who are making millions and profit from their success
- Selling on Amazon - Dominate the world's largest online marketplace and build your empire.
Note: If you go to the site, you can view all the different sections (including specific video titles within the modules) without actually being a member. I'm a big fan of the transparency, so at least you have a good idea of what to expect when you sign up...that's pretty rare in this industry.
Keep in mind that the course isn't a training program that's meant to be followed step by step. It's more of a reference type of site that you would turn to depending on what you need. For instance, right now I'm mostly interested in selling on Amazon and using paid traffic, so that's what I'll be referencing most frequently.
It's like walking into a Library. You usually walk in with a specific topic you're trying to learn more about. That's his vision with the Internet Entrepreneurs Club.
Templates | Internet Entrepreneurs Club
This is the sort of resource that I've always wanted to have - access to quality banners, backgrounds, call to action buttons, sales pages, infographic templates, etc. It's not that you can't find this stuff anywhere else, but it's nice to have it in one place.
Unfortunately, the downloads are lumped into a single download for each section, so you can't really get a good look at the files until you download them, but it's still very nice to have.
This is probably the most built out part of the site. I'd love to see some ecommerce templates, but other than that, it's got just about anything I think I'd ever need with regards to graphics and templates.
Rolodex | Internet Entrepreneurs Club
This is really just a list of 3rd party resources for different tools and services you might need. Again, you could probably find similar lists online, but it's nice to have it all in one place and to know that it is frequently updated to keep up with what's happening in the market. Saves me a lot of time trying to find these places on my own.
Internet Entrepreneurs Club Community
This is not your standard forum. He's using a software with a very unique and minimal interface that's very easy to use and stay ontop of everything. It's probably what I'm most interested in. It's been my experience that the right community can be priceless, especially when it's managed by people who are actively involved.
I've only been through about half the material to this point, but it's exactly the type of training a busy guy like me needs. I'm doing pretty well with my business (selling on Amazon), but I still need resources to help me grow, and I personally like having a "one stop shop" to learn what's effective these days. I want to know what's working and to have a place to ask questions where people understand more than just one piece of the puzzle. I don't want to know just about Facebook marketing, or just about paid ads. There are a lot of different components to my business and I'm looking for a comprehensive set of resources, including a community, that can address a large portion of my needs in one place. As I said in my intro here, I quickly identified Chris as someone who not only knows how to get results, but who also has the ability to articulate himself well and teach others in a clear and concise manner.
I'm not sure how many people are familiar with Profit Marketer (previously known as Profit.fm), but it was meant to be the same type of resource that IEC hopes to be. In fact, I was a big fan of the site until a split up of the ownership (Mike Johnson and Gary Predergast) and poor execution ruined (in my opinion) what could have been a great resource for Internet marketers. It still has value, but isn't nearly as good as it could have been.
The value I got from Profit Marketer during the brief period that it met my needs is why I've got such high hopes for IEC. The leadership is there and the content I've seen so far is top notch. I'm eager to see more video courses added, but the main thing I'm looking for is an active, high quality community forum.
Now, this club isn't cheap, but I've found that it's paid/private memberships that usually produce the best forums. The site opened up 48 hours ago, so it's too early to expect anything out of the community, but my motivation for writing this review is to attract people who are already successful, but don't have the time to constantly search for what's happening in the market.
I want to bring awareness to what I think has the potential to be awesome resource.
Now, this is a Clickbank product, so it would be very easy for me to promote as an affiliate, but I am purposely not doing this. I will write a full review on my blog without an affiliate link because I want to make it clear that my motivations are really just to get the word out. I've exchanged emails with Chris, but I am not personal friends with him and have no incentive to write a positive review. I just respect what he has done and am excited to share it with everyone here.
