What I Learned From Being Mentored By Alex Jeffreys
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…I bought MOST of the upsells that were in that sales funnel.
He’s a very good marketer.
I actually created a product with the help of his training in the Super Product, which I found to be very good training for a “wet behind the ears” newbie like me.
Despite having my product pretty much created, I was still kind of clueless on what to do next.
I kept hearing/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 was 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, which led to 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 was “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 (sales guy lol).
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 3pm 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 were 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 was 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…I can do this!?”
Failure To Launch
Now Alex’s main training focuses on launching your own digital products and having affiliates promote.
Seems simple…on paper that is.
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 soon learned.
People had a product pretty much created their own product 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 (which is tough when you’ve already paid a lot of money to be in the program), but I did and that was a pain in the ass because I just couldn’t get the pages I wanted…the way I wanted…when I wanted.
**UPDATE: I DID LAUNCH MY PRODUCT AND MADE LIKE 5 SALES**
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.
**UPDATE: I’M NO LONGER IN THE PROGRAM**
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 the program 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/guru’s website or any affiliate promoting the program because they’re most likely/100% biased or they’re gonna cherry pick and only show the good ones of course.
I hope you find some value in this post.
I’d love to hear about any thoughts you have on this in the comments below.
P.S. In November of 2016, I launched my first real product called Lethal Affiliate Weapon.
I made about 80 sales during launch week which felt great.
I’ve now moved on to using Facebook like a boss by using live videos, compelling Facebook posts, my Facebook group and basically just free Facebook traffic.
Thank you for reading my lil’ post here, feel free to leave comments below with thoughts or questions.
