This is an email marketing course from Andrea Fulton and Bill Guthrie. If you already know how to market with email list building and how to build a squeeze page then this will be a total waste of $7. I just stumbled upon it by searching for email marketing articles on Google so I decided to spend the seven bucks and check it out. I've already done it so you don't have to or need to.
Name: Make Money With Email
Price: $7 + $27 upsell + $37 upsell + $47 upsell
Owner: Andrea Fulton and Bill Guthrie
Before You Commit
Last year Andrea came out with a very low quality offering that was packaged up as Affiliate Commission Empire. She has taken most of that package and partnered up with serial internet marketer Bill Guthrie and repackaged and released under the new name of Make Money With Email. Along with another program called Hot Smokin Solo Ads these are Andrea's primary sales pitches.
They both take turns on the video presentations once you get inside the website.
After you pay your $7 which for me was not an easy access, I had to send numerous emails just to access the content. It was very frustrating because they have outsourced this feature to a third party and you wait for the fix.
That was the other surprising thing after signing up. I was just given access to a website menu. You access the training through a drop down menu, you watch one, click finish lesson and then move on through to the next lesson. The only lesson that was an actual video class was the one on squeeze pages. All the others were just screencasts of power point presentations and low quality at that. So, for $7 all you are getting is two people talking you through a power point presentation. Is that worth it? It depends on you and what you already know about email marketing. Newbies would be lost inside of here because there is a lot of lingo you would need to understand and there is no step by step in some presentations for you to follow.
What Am I Paying Up For?
You will receive via the drop down menu under 'Core Training' a series of 8 presentation videos called:
- The MMWE Formula
- Autoresponder Set-Up
- Squeeze Page Set-Up
- Affiliate Marketing
- Turn Key Campaign
There isn't a lot of juice here because it's mostly all sales and promotion. Even though $7 is a really cheap entry point it's what's not here that really counts and this is where they set the hook deep. You need TRAFFIC! How else is your email campaign going to work without it. They never teach you that here. They will sell you on their 'Wholesalers Club' so you can get discounted traffic because well Andrea's been doing this for 8 years.
Here is their upsell on traffic packages:
This to me is the meat of the program and all the rest is just a disguise to get you inside, teach you a little bit through power point and then skim over the fact that none of this works if you don't have traffic for your website.
What's To Like
I don't really have a lot of good things to say about MMWE but there are a few good pointers they provide and it just may be worth the $7 to some newbie internet marketers.
There are some videos worth watching. Some are even over 20 minutes long and the campaign video is close to 30 minutes. If you've never seen the inside of the Aweber dashboard, Andrea will give you a good look and may be worth your while. For just $7 there is no reason to complain about the apparent lack of detail and the slow pace of some of the videos.
If you have never done email marketing, then you might find how integrating your autoresponder inside your email list worthwhile learning. You will be taught how it all works together.
The only problem you're going to have is filling in the blanks if you're using different products and how to do this live for yourself through your own campaign. The one they provide is way too confusing for newbies, plus you still have to figure out where you are going to get traffic and how best to pay for it.
What's NOT To Like?
They make an outrageous money making claim that is so confusing to follow once you get to the video. Here is a screenshot:
You will never make the money he is talking about here in one month. The first thing you need is a list to sell to. Where is the freakin list? You have to buy it and the math he uses to break this down on the video is just ridiculous. It's just a sales pitch that I would never buy into. The platinum package after registration will cost you $571 for the year. That's just to learn about submitting emails to sell a product, nothing else.
So you can't really make money from email without spending a small fortune in ads. This is going to take time and lots more money to make this work for you. Bill deceives you into thinking this is going to be easy. It's not and it's one of my main bitches with this cheap program.
I also didn't like the low quality of some of the videos being mixed in with power point. It just made it all seem so lazy and nonchalant. Andrea tries to come across as some bored housewife talking to you from the comfort of her living room. It's just not very professionally done. She even makes a comment at one point " I can't type today, oh my god look at me I'm a wreck".
There is no training tutorial on traffic. It's a real shame because this would be a solid sell with that here but that's only available by upsell and I sincerely doubt spending that extra $47 is going to translate into more than 5K in 30 days.
There are lots of things missing here, I kissed my $7 goodbye so you don't have to hold that same goodbye party. It will end up costing you more than $7 as the above ad urges you to invest and reinvest more. After all you need traffic, right? I mean who is going to buy your product or any affiliate product picked off of Clickbank for you. That is why Bill and Andrea sell traffic packages, just in case you were wondering why they are in that business. It's a pretty common tactic and internet marketers sell, that's what they do. No problem with the selling, just be careful before you fall for the pitch.
My Final Take
Make Money With Email can't be called a scam becuase it does povide you with something for your money, just not a whole lot. As usual, I like to look at what's not provided over and above all the jaw boning about making wads of cash. You will not find any meaningful lesson on how to create emails, landing pages or ads to drive traffic. Lots of fluff not much meat. Hardly worth it to just pay for a claim of five figure riches, my opinion.
Get started by building your own website. Learn what SEO (search engine optimization) is and how it can help you with traffic. Getting your pages and posts ranked. Promote products and services you use and have experience with. A starter account is free so you can take it for a test drive and look inside for something that excites you.
