Welcome to this very honest Project Profit Academy review.
You must probably have seen a lot of other blogs or Youtube videos promoting this program and describe it as a program that will MAKE your career. But did you realize that they’re all affiliates of the program and don’t really give you a lot of negatives about it?
They’ll get paid if you purchase from their links so that’s the reason why they’re recommending it like it’s the best thing since sliced bread.
Well, I’m not going to do that. I’m going to be totally honest with you and let you know exactly what I’ve found out about the program, including the cons so that you can make an informed decision. I’m not an affiliate of the program so rest assured that I’ll be honest in my review and unbiased in my opinion.
Purpose: Training on everything involving Affiliate Marketing
Do I Recommend It?: Yes and No! Read the review for the reason why
Who Is Brendan Mace?
If you haven’t heard about Brendan Mace and you’re a newbie, then it’s understandable. But if you’ve been in the affiliate marketing world and have not heard of him, then man! Where have you been?
Brendan, the creator of Project Profit Academy has become a well-known product launcher and affiliate marketer in the digital world. He started off just like every one of us, with a boss that was less than pleasant. That’s the reason he turned to the internet to start making money.
And he made it! He is now a millionaire and is living the laptop lifestyle. He is one of the best sellers/vendors on the WarriorPlus platform.
He is not that bad of a guy, to tell you the truth. He has a lot of helpful tips and tricks for affiliate marketing and product launching on his Youtube channel that now has over 55K subscribers. So when it comes to affiliate marketing and Youtubing, he knows his stuff.
There’s really only one problem and that’s the fact that his products aren’t always the best. I’ve reviewed a lot of his programs, like Bang Bang Profits, The Banger Method and The Lost Code, which all didn’t really impress me. He may be one of the best sellers/vendors on WarriorPlus, but that does not mean he is selling you quality stuff.
But you gotta give the guy some credit; he knows how to SELL! If you know how to sell, then you can sell anything!
Is that what we’re going to be taught within Project Profit Academy? Is the training going to be worth the price tag? Is the program going to be as disappointing as his last products or is it different this time?
Let’s immerse ourselves into the training to see what Brendan brings to the table.
What’s Inside Project Profit Academy?
I have to hand it to Brendan; there’s a lot of content! You have trainings, ready-made funnels, specific training for those funnels, a private FB group for Project Profit Academy members and support from Brendan himself.
The trainings are broken down further into three other sections; Affiliate Academy (promoting other people’s products for commissions), Launch Academy (creating and launching you own digital product) and Expert Academy (how to promote high-ticket items).
The Affiliate Academy will show you how to make money doing email marketing. This is how Brendan makes hundreds to thousands of dollars each day. He just sends out one email and he makes money for days after.
You’ll learn how to pick and offer, how to get approval for it from any affiliate network and how to present it to your audience. You’ll learn how to do list-building like creating a squeeze page. You’ll learn how to effectively use Aweber to manage your subscribers and to send out promotional emails. There’s tons of value.
With the Launch Academy, you’ll learn how to create and launch your product on the WarriorPlus platform. However, just launching a product and hoping that it will get sold is not the right way to start, says Brendan, because nobody knows you yet. So Brendan takes care of that by partnering up with you to up your sales on the platform.
Brendan’s products have always had 2000 – 3000 sales and even more! There’s definitely a lot of value there to be able to partner up with Brendan. Not only will you get many sales for your program, but you’ll also be making a ton of money, even if you’re partnering up with him and splitting the money.
Imagine 3000 sales at $20 with upsells to $100; that’s a potential total of $360K. If you pay your affiliates 50% and split the rest 50% with Brendan, that’s $90K in your pocket for just one launch! What if you could release 4 – 5 of those products within a year? That’s a pretty penny, isn’t it?
That’s worth the price right there, if you want my opinion.
What you also get with the program is access to promote all of Brendan’s programs, complete with all promotional materials like done-for-you funnels and email swipes. Sounds like a time saver but like I mentioned earlier, I didn’t find his other programs impressive.
But one plus is that they convert really well. So if you’re not too good at design, you may want to use Brendan’s squeeze pages to build your email list.
All That Sounds Good – But Is There A Catch?
There are more good points about this program it seems, right? But there is one thing, unfortunately, that could make or break you with this program and that’s the fact that I’m not very satisfied with the traffic training that is within.
You see, traffic means visitors. You could have your high-converting squeeze pages and wonderful offers to promote as an affiliate marketer but if there’s no traffic, nobody actually seeing those pages, then you won’t make a dime. Unfortunately, you can’t just put up your squeeze pages and wait for people to visit. It does not work that way!
YOU need to go out there and find your own traffic, either through free or paid means. Here, the most effective way to get traffic would be doing Youtube videos. And if you don’t like to be on video, then tough luck! You’re gonna have to rely on social media, which in my experience, is really hard and time consuming.
There is no way for you to try and get traffic through SEO or the search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo here because your landing pages and squeeze pages wouldn’t be unique content. They would be duplicate content and the search engines don’t like that. They’ll never send you free traffic.
The other alternative is to engage in paid traffic and if you’re a beginner, I would never recommend that you start off with paid traffic. You would usually need $1000 just to start off with paid traffic because you need to run different campaigns and experiment to see which ones perform the best. Only then you’ll be able to optimize the best one.
So as you can see, if you don’t have the $1000 extra (on top of the fee of the course) to spend in traffic, you will most probably have a tough time getting traffic, unless you try Youtube.
It’s funny because Brendan being such a successful Youtuber, I couldn’t find any training on how to get traffic through Youtube, unless I missed it. You can correct me if I’m wrong on that.
What I Like
1) You get to learn from one of the best affiliate marketers/vendors on WarriorPlus
2) Decent overall training
3) Access to Brendan himself and his circle of friends
4) Partner with Brendan for a launch which could bring it a ton of revenue
5) Some worthwhile tools
What I Don’t Like
1) PRICE!!! It’s really high!
2) Lacks training on traffic generation
3) Best if you want to do product launches and not so much if you want to learn affiliate marketing
4) Not so newbie-friendly as you think
Is Project Profit Academy A Scam?
No, I definitely don’t think that Project Profit Academy is a scam. On the other hand, it’s as legit as can be. It’s got some pretty good training, especially for product launching. The best part is that you get to partner up with Brendan himself for the launches to get yourself known in the online world.
I have to say that compared to the other programs and products that he has launched, Project Profit Academy is probably his best one so far, since his other ones weren’t as good, were misleading and missed out on a lot of training. This one is missing some good traffic training but that is not an issue if you’re an intermediate to advanced marketer.
However, the lack of good traffic training means that this program is not newbie-friendly. Brendan also does not explain a lot on niche selection and the only niche that you will be able to go into if you want Brendan to be your partner is the make-money-online niche.
Now, if you want to launch products within that niche, then you’ll need to know how a website works and you’ll need to know how the make-money-online niche works and what people are looking for, what problem you want to solve and so on. A newbie will not know that!
And like I mentioned before, if you want to go into affiliate marketing, the training within isn’t that great. If you want to learn about affiliate marketing, then this is not the product for you, especially if you’re a beginner.
If you are an intermediate to advanced marketer and are already in the make-money-online niche, then this product may benefit you, but again, only if you want to launch your own product in partnership with Brendan. Otherwise, I wouldn’t recommend it.
A big road block for most people will be the price at almost $2K. On top of that, you’ll need to invest into other tools as the $2K only covers the training. It’s up to you to see now whether all this money is worth it.
Here’s An Alternative If You Don’t Have $2K Lying Around
I understand that you are not rich, which is why you are looking to make money online in the first place, right? Don’t worry, because I didn’t have $2K lying around either to invest into programs like Project Profit Academy.
That’s why I recommend that you try learning about affiliate marketing. As long as you get some good traffic training, you’ll be good to go! Don’t worry about competitors because they are always going to be there, even in product launching. You can get started with affiliate marketing for completely free, did you know that?
You can get free websites, learn to get free traffic to that website and make money promoting other people’s products. That’s how I make money and that’s how I got started. I actually think that affiliate marketing is the easiest way to make money for a beginner. I’ve been through it so I know.
That’s why I put together a FREE guide that explains all you need to know about affiliate marketing and how it works. I’ll also through in a FREE 6-Day Course that will kickstart your journey to success. All free and free! A far cry from $2K, isnt it? I’ll also get you free access to the training platform that helped get me started as well.
