Which Course really made you money?

44 replies
I know that there isn't a perfect course out there that will lead to step by step training to get a guaranteed amount of cash but what's the closest products you've used to get you the amount of money your making thanks to them?

I was looking at Local offline business courses and some online business, can't really specify the best products. Video Step by step is the way to go for me.

    There is NOTHING that will guarantee to make you money. You just have to find one that will put it in the simplest terms for you to understand the process.

    It is YOU that will make the money, not the course, not the membership, you.

    If videos are what your looking for. CFM is the best one I know of.

      Thank you, Action is the best way to make money, only problem is I don't know where to start, with which product etc. CFM seems too newbie friendly, I already have some basics down that CFM covers.

    SponsoredTweets.com is an online platform that allows you to make money on Twitter by charging sponsors for communicating their advertising messages to your followers. You set the amount you want to get paid for every tweet you make, choose a category and select keywords you want to work with. You then wait for advertisers to contact you and take you up on your offer, paying you the amount you specified for each tweet that you make.

    Taking action is the best thing to do - courses give you more knowledge, and there are good and bad ones out there. Also, for example if you were studying SEO, what was a good course may no longer be, as it would probably very quickly go out of date.

    If, however, you already have a blog with a devoted following it should be easy for you to leverage your readers into hard cash. Ad networks such as Google AdSense pay big money to place their ads on your site, and you’ll receive a payment every time a reader clicks one. While it’s easy to go overboard and fill every spare pixel, if you place your ads well it’s possible to make a comfortable income from your site.

    Basically, if you're looking for an online blueprint to make money and don't have a clue what you'd like to do, you probably will just end up spending money on magic buttons and not making a dime.

    You buy a "course" or info product when you've done the research, decided how you want to make money online or what kind of business you'd like to launch and need additional tips and info to make that happen.

    There are no blueprints. Courses with income claims are most likely not true.

    Let me tell you what you need...

    Persistence and a mentor or coach...

    Without persisting, even the most complete course won't help you...

    So find an experienced mentor and work hard (and smart)...

    What background and skills do you have now?

    That makes a huge difference in where you should start.

    Whatever you do when you're starting out you want to focus
    on getting really GREAT at ONE thing and stick with that
    until you're making some serious money.

    From there it will be easier to choose the direction you want to
    go in.

    Kindest regards,

        Thanks Mike!

        At the end of the day, coaches, programs, courses, guides are LEVERAGE

        what does leverage do?

        It magnifies gains AND LOSSES

        If you have the right habits and attitude, they can magnify your gains tremendously. I don't know any successful marketer who hasn't purchased and still doesn't purchase products, coaching, and masterminds.

        If you have the wrong habits and attitudes, they will magnify your losses and make you more frustrated, overloaded, and stuck.

        It's important to work on the soft skills before working on the "business" hard skills!

        My two cents

    I shouldn't say it, but I am.

    My membership will teach you how to make money online. It is a membership about YOU, on what YOU need, the process on what YOU need to understand.

    The mindset YOU need to be in. How it will help YOU find a niche YOU enjoy.

    How I have pre-made squeezs pages, sales pages, download pages, and I even have follow up messages made for you. You will even have full MRR and PLR rights to them. You can build a list off them, sell them, or do both.

    No matter how much I give you (I think its allot) it depends on what YOU do with it.

    You have to work with the tools you have. When I say work, I mean put in the time and learn the skills, use the skills, and understand the skills.

    After you have everything setup, then it is just bringing in traffic. That's it, targeted traffic. Building a list and having a relationship with them.

    If you do this (not even through me) just do this, you will make money online.

    Its funny to me how most of the posts so far are from people acting so high and mighty like they figured it all out themselves. My advice is don't buy any WSO's, most suck. start a $1 trial from some one with a good reputation like Russell Brunson, or Ryan Deiss, just to become acquainted with marketing done right, keep the membership if you want but this is mostly to learn the ropes a little, then I can not emphasize enough to get a mentor, someone who will talk with you on the phone on a weekly basis, this is far more valuable than ANY course you will find, its how I became successful and I guarantee 99% of anybody having success in online/offline marketing had a good mentor.

      I would have to agree with you. These days, no one has a clue on who you can trust. Its around what, 97% of people fail in making money online. That's allot of people not being successful. So out of 100 people only 3 are really making a true successful income.

      I wouldn't find a cheap mentor. A good real successful mentor will run you around $1000 - $4000. I know a marketer that will make you a real successful sales funnel for $40,000 (that is not a typo).

      To tell you the truth, the reason some memberships charge $1 is, they are a vendor through clickbank. They cant give you a free trail. Clickbank charges them $1 for every sale an affiliate makes. They would lose $1 for every sale an affiliate would make if they offered a true free trail.

      I just didn't like the comment about everyone trying to act all high and mighty. Everything I see has great value for a beginner to learn.

      The most they will get out of this thread is that, they have to believe in them selfs. They them self "YOU" is the way to make money online.

      The only reason I brought up my membership is you get 14 days FREE (not $1), they get it for free. I'm here to help and not scam. If a beginner needs help understanding on getting there foot in the door. To me, looks like I give allot of value compared to others.

      The reason for this, I hate seeing beginners go through the same struggles I went through. To become successful, money is the very last thing that should be in your mind. Helping others will always come first.

      Mentoring is great after you have a foundation of knowledge to build off of. The truth is that most successful marketers started with products. The key is to not just be a serial buyer, but look to use each product or resource you learn from to enhance what your current plan is...not to jump around from plan to plan.

      I would say use this forum and the war room to get a base foundation and THEN look into mentoring

    Get into the War Room and start reading. Sort the posts by Rating, and focus on the five star posts. You will find some step by step methods in there, and you should come away with a better idea of what you really want to do, and then if you still want to purchase a course you can find one that covers your chosen method of income generation.

    Jimmy D Brown's Six Figure Formula. Jimmy isn't mentioned much these days, but he is the God Father of marketing online and mentor to guys like John Reese.

    Why SFF? Because it taught me the most important aspects of running an online business. The course is about planning and execution.

    Don't think it's around these days. But if you can get it, I recommend it.

    He also got me started on memberships which have been awesome.

    So when I started online I was one of the droves that got hooked into the golden bullet conveyor belt...

    My experience of that was to make a 56 cent affiliate sale in six months and I was ready to quit.

    But my fiancée urged me to continue.

    The thing for me was that I had grown a successful offline business before I came online and never for one moment considered that those skills were adaptable - for six months at least.

    Then I found a guy (guru) if you like that taught the basic, essential business building skills. In fact it was his free content webinar that woke me up to my product purchase mistakes and leveraging the skills I already had.

    This is what it took for me to succeed in making a decent full time income online.

    That coach is Rich Shefren. And I enrolled on his $47 continuity program called Founders Club. It's been around for a while and many have heard of it.

    I didn't really need so much of his training but more of the wake up call. Things became clear as I said, after watching his free webinar and report.

    My best tip is to find training that is not attached to a fad. Look for learning the skills that build and grow a business instead.

    And do the work. This is the one thing that all successful marketers have in common. They took actions.

    Thanks
    Marcus

      If you are going to buy something here is another vote for the War Room. Spend some time looking at the top rated posts or ones that interest you. Remember that 1 WSO or report alone is probably not going to be the ticket to big money. I believe that the first step is determining what you want to do in IM (affiliate sales, PPC, adsense, blogs, physical products, drop shipping etc....) Then build from there.

      How do I use the War Room? I have a look at the free WSOs and reports in there and see how I can apply those techniques and those tips to my existing affiliate, adsense, and blog projects. For example, Craigslist. I don't want to, nor will I ever be a big time Craigslist marketer. But I did learn a lot about driving traffic and sales to my existing projects through Craigslist the right way, now I am learning about doing the same with Youtube.

      Sorry I couldn't give you the magic bullet

    Miraclem - You've received some really good advice here already, but here's my 2 cents!

    I think what you might need is a bit of focus. First, you want to pick a niche, doesn't matter what,something you like and something you have some knowledge in. Give this some REAL thought. Forget about making a ton of money right now, just focus on something you are good at.

    I would suggest starting with building a list as follows.

    Your next step depends on a few things - but if you are willing to put a bit of work in, you can get started for only a couple of bucks!

    Are you willing to write an e-book on a topic you like? Or buy one of GOOD quality?

    What I would do is then setup a freebie squeeze page ( lots of them out there ) along with an auto-responder ( get a 1 dollar unit for a month ) and start collecting leads. Use your auto-responder to send out some good info on your topic with a sprinkling of affiliate links.

    The cheapest way to get traffic? Forum posting. Get a sale or two (will take a while...) then reinvest into some paid traffic.

    There's a few programs out there that you can do '30 days for a buck' and get started super cheap.

    This will take time and effort, but cost very little and get your started.

    Good Luck!

    Sorry but simply joining the War Room is as futile as buying WSO's.

    The war room is packed with resources and tools, however....

    If you don't have a plan and some idea of what you wish to achieve, then all these tools are useless.

    The internet is only a medium for you to reach customers. It's still a business - if you're serious about this - so you need to understand the basics about business first and foremost.

    Once you determine how much you want to make, how much time and resources you can comfortably invest, then knock yourself out looking for the right method that is congruent with your goals.

    Then you can look at acquiring specific education and tools for your chosen method... and ignore anything else.

    Even with my war room membership, I only download what I need today to help me grow my business.

    Bets of success,

      Like others have said, no course will guarantee your success, because frankly your success is about your hardwork and effort.

      I, like you, love video step by step and thats what I get in my current training/lead generation program. It's packed with info on how to generate traffic to your blog, fan page, twitter, etc and how to advertise on social media platforms. It even teaches Solo Ads and pay per click.

      I truly have gained more info through the program than any other simply because they do not focus on one thing. They try and teach you how to be profitable on multiple platforms.

      The lead generation is bananas...but only IF you work it

    The first course that really helped me was Calvin Woon's Commission Avalanche Mastery.

    However, you will only make real money by taking action and seeing what works for you. Courses are useless unless you apply what you're taught by them.

    Go to Amazon.com and type the same question. Read some of the excerpts from the top sellers.
    You will find that most of the books tell you what everyone here has said.

    Go watch some episodes of "Gold Rush Alaska"...
    They pretty much say it all in get rich quick.

    NOW; close your eyes and envision how your business should work and how you could justify $1000 per day.
    do the research man... $1000 per day for you alone supplying your expertise... probably not.
    The same for you teaching people how to learn it.... perhaps..

    You need many courses. I don’t remember exactly the name of a few courses that helped me in certain ways, depending on what I was looking for each time.

    There is no course that will show you everything you need to know. You will learn a few things that will help you achieve a certain goal.

    Many courses helped me, but many didn't help me in any way. I learned more at this forum than by reading these courses.

    Hi,

    From your post I'm gathering that you are asking what courses we have bought in the past, and which of them was the most successful.

    The ones that I have bought and stick out for me are:

    A wso that was concerned with setting up a website flipping business. It was fairly well detailed, and easy to follow, and had some tips that I was unfamiliar with. I followed their guide and did make some fairly good money.

    Another was a wso that required you set yourself up as a company that searches the web for pirated digital products such as ebooks, courses and the like. This also made me a few dollars in a matter of weeks.

    If you want more details of them, pm me aqnd I'll try to find the wso salespages for you.

    Action has to be taken at the end or else it is the same- knowing it but not executing it. Personally it has been unsuccessful for me so far as I had never followed the tutorial till the end or may be I easily get discouraged by the slight failure which I know isnt a good thing at all.

    All the e-courses and coaching in the world will not do a single thing for you if you don't put action to the knowledge.

    Ok, with that said, there is a link in my signature for a review on a product called "The Emergency Money Machine". I recommend that you click on it and read the review.

    Basically this is a great way to leverage YouTube and other people's videos to start making some affiliate income.

    It does work if you work it, you don't need a website, but you have to network with people. (Sound familiar?)

    Rooting for you!

    I feel a little sorry for you on this. You asked a simple question and have received all sorts of answers, most of them not answering your question.

    Sulry somebody has earned money from a purchased course and can simply give details.

    Ok, ok, I know a few of you have recommended, but no real meat in your answers.
