Alex Jeffreys is a millionaire.
He was able to get there by being mentored himself by Mike Filsaime and some other very successful coaches and his vessel was by launching information products.
I bought the Super Product some time ago from him and to be honest bought some of the upsells that were in that sales funnel.
He’s a very good marketer.
I created a product with some of the teachings from the Super Product, which I found to be very good training.
Despite having a product pretty much created, I was still kind of clueless on what to do next.
I kept hearing and seeing more and more about Alex Jeffreys and saw his free training The 5 Pillars of Instant Internet Success, a pretty great 4-video series on how to be successful online.
This is a precursor to his backend coaching “Marketing With You”.
I bit in.
Now, here’s where it gets a little crazy.
After watching that 5 Pillars training there is an “Apply Now” button at the bottom where it’s a survey form asking you a bunch of stuff they probably already know like “where are you struggling with your business” and things of that nature (I don’t remember the exact questions).
The main question is “How much starting capital do you have available right now to invest in working with Alex Jeffreys?” and it has a range of $500 up to $25K.
I filled out all the details and got a call from one of his staff members.
They made it sound like not everyone is accepted and I was told that the cost was $7K.
I won’t mention exactly how much I paid because that’s their deal and if people are willing to pay that much then I can’t really blame a marketer for getting as much as he/she can.
I paid much less, that’s all I’ll say.
This is a 6 month mentorship program.
The main training is basically live calls every Thursday at 3 pm GMT with Alex that can go as long as 4 hours, he doesn’t stop until the questions stop in a webinar-style class.
I found this very intimidating and I don’t think I’m alone.
There are several students in the mentorship program and I think this is very daunting for a complete newbie or even someone like me, someone between novice and intermediate, because I had made some money online.
Complementary to the main training is the membership site where you’ll have access to many of Alex’s previous products, which are very good along with a mastermind FB group you can join.
In the membership site there are several videos (very long ones), worksheets that you can fill out, and you’re generally supposed to go in order.
I found a lot of these videos to be quite dated, the audio quality was very poor, and there is a lot of regurgitated information (I get it that you really have to beat some stuff into people but a lot of the information is very similar and super repetitive).
Because I was so excited to be in the program, I overlooked these things to be completely honest. I was like, “this is good information and I can do this!”
Now Alex’s main training focuses on launching your own digital products and having affiliates promote for you.
I had my product pretty much done since I created it back when I got my training from the Super Product.
However, I was kind of clueless about how to make the website, hook my product up to JV Zoo (Alex’s recommended affiliate platform) and a some other technical details.
This was a common problem in the group I learned.
People had a product pretty much created and had a hard time knowing what to do next.
I’d ask Alex about this via email (it was very hard to get an email back from Alex quickly) and I’d ask in the mastermind FB group as well.
The general consensus was to outsource the web designing (it’s tough when you’ve already paid a lot of money to be in the program), but I did and that was tough too because I just couldn’t get the pages I wanted…the way I wanted…when I wanted.
Now this may be just because I should’ve gone with a different designer, but it’s just what I ran into.
To date I have not launched my product because of all the complications.
This blog post may be a little controversial because I’m still in the program, but I’m only speaking from my experience and I want you to be well-informed if you’ve been thinking of entering this or any other kind of high-end mentorship/coaching program.
I’ve had a falling out with it myself, but that’s not to say other mentorship programs aren’t great or even that this one can’t work.
I just found that this wasn’t for me.
What you can take from this post is that you should do extensive research when you’re thinking of being mentored and it’s a top dollar program.
Reach out to some of the people that have been a part of the program and have ACTUALLY gone through it before deciding, don’t just listen to the testimonials on the mentor’s website or any affiliate promoting the program because they’re biased.
I hope you find some value in this post.
