Considering the cost of most affiliate marketing courses ($150+ for anything worth it) this isn't bad value.
Ease of USe
It uses the ClickFunnels membership area, so easy enough to navigate and mark off lessons.
The content and the information given is solid and it obviously works. Jacob has provided real life examples and demonstrations for the lessons.
I have reached out twice and both times had very speedy responses, can't fault him there!
Summary: This is Jacob's first course / training since winning the Dream Car challenge from ClickFunnels. He obviously knows what he is on about and provides some decent value. The training itself is quite short, but then again some PDF courses are sold at the same price, so you can't argue too much. I think it's worth investing in, if you want to learn a few interesting techniques.
Currently $47 (check out the latest price above)
You could be forgiven if you have no clue who Jacon Caris was, and to be honest, I didn't until a month or two ago (possible 3). He is a very young, very recent ClickFunnels Dream Car Winner (that cool affiliate program whereby someone throws an extra $500 - $1000 on top of your commissions as a bonus - It's amazing).
Riding on that success train, it seems that young Jacob has decided to create himself a little course to help explain how he managed to do this (spoiler alert, a lot of hard work).
The question today though, is, is the Dream Car Profits course any good? And is it worth your time or your money getting it, there is only one way to find out lets crack on with this Dream Car Profits Course review (or you could watch his video, that would probably explain quite a bit as well)
What Is Dream Car Profits & Why Did I Sign Up?
Quite a good question, even if I do say so myself.
Dream Car Profits, is a short course, and yes, this is not the length of Spencer Affiliate Secrets 2.0 course, or even the stupidly cheap and jam packed Savage Affiliates course, this is a very much Jacob's first crack at creating a course, and to be fair, it's not a bad first try.
One of the reasons I signed up, and paid money (yes, it does cost money) for the course, is because I am always interested in what other affiliates are doing, and I love learning and becoming better, especially those you manage to crack the nutritiously hard ClickFunnels affiliate program.
Yep, even with 90% done for you funnels and easy ways to get traffic, it can on occasion be a bit of a slog! So if someone is going to explain how to get it done easier, or cheaper, I am all ears!
From what I know, Jacob followed 2 main mentors to get him to where he is today, the aforementioned Spencer and then after getting that sexy Dream Car winner title, he found a group called the Legendary Marketers (cheesy...).
Dream Car Profits Membership - What's Inside?
Let's delve a little into what you get as part of your Dream Car Profits Membership, and what's included in the course.
Now, if you head on over to the main page, and do decide to get started, it's worth nothing, don't use a throw away email when the first free lead generation popup appears, that's used later to send all your membership information. Oops!
Also, as part of the sign up process, once you purchase the Dream Car Profits Course, there is an up-sell to grab some email swipes or learn to create nice emails, I picked it up, as I was quite interested, but to be honest, this time I would not say it's worth the extra cash to get it. The up-sell itself is around $7 - $20? I can't quite remember, and due to that original mess up by myself, I no longer have the receipt to check!
The course itself is made up of 6 different 'areas' and I will be honest and have to loosely call it an area, as it's more a single video focused on a particular area.
So the course is broken down
You are also given a bonus section based on the Legendary Marketer Affiliate System, which I will cover a little bit, a little later on.
A Breakdown Of The Course Areas
I am obviously not going to explain exactly what is given in each area, as that would mean I have just taken the information and thrown it here!
Dream Car Profits Core Strategy
So this section is the overview of the course, it lays the foundation and explains and I would say motivates you to want to start taking the ideas given and make them your own. The video itself is around 20 minutes long, with plenty of little titbits of information and takeaways, but the majority is explaining the next sections.
Blogging With A Twist
One that I was quite interested in, as I do enjoy blogging and I am always learning and improving on my own blog, and a few others that I run.
Again the video is around 20 minutes long, with some really good takeaways, including information on keyword research and how to do it effectively, as well as a technique or two that Jacob has used to help his blogs stand out.
Part of this video does also explain tools or apps he has used as part of his blogs as well.
I wouldn't say that anything he provided in this leaped out and shouted 'this is completely new', but for those who may not have done much research into blogging then this video will be quite useful.
Used as an accompaniment to the original video, many affiliate marketers forget the power of video and how useful it can be (or how easy it can be with tools such as Content Samurai).
Again Jacob provides the background to this particular area, with his own take on how to succeed with ranking videos or how to start achieving success with videos and YouTube etc.
Adwords & Bing
A insanely difficult area to really succeed with (at times), and one that can take hours, days, weeks or years to fully master. PPC can be a completely nightmare to get right and can end up costing a lot of money if you fail.
As with the others, Jacob explains the core concepts, providing that foundation knowledge to build upon. He does also talk you through some good campaigns he has found, and even some useful tips on targeting or trying to get the low hanging fruit.
He also dives into his own ad manager and talks you through setting an ad up.
A strategy that I haven't fully utilised, (See this pitiful place!).
This is actually a little goldmine of helpful information and he really does provide some valuable information and strategies for utilising the potential traffic source.
The final 'core strategy' that Jacob provides his wisdom on, is coaching. A bit like he has started to do, and started to capitalise on. Coaching can be a great way of helping others. I provide training and even email guidance when people pick up funnels or courses etc through this site, as I want them to succeed as much as possible (the more you succeed, the happier I am and the more likely you are to tell your friends!)
I don't believe that many people really use this method of gaining followers or building their email lists, and definitely not increasing their referrals or even affiliate commissions via coaching, but that's usually because most people are learning, and don't feel that they have the experience to coach people.
As I start to head towards the 2 year mark, and this blog grows even bigger, I will look at using that method, I already do it for a lot of eCommerce and helping people with their Shopify stores or AliDropShip stores, because I have a ton of knowledge and advice!
Bonus -Legendary Marketer Affiliate System
So really, this is more of a sales video than anything massively help. The video itself explains how Jacob decided to try and find other income streams and other programs to promote (yes the link in the videos are affiliate links, but that's not surprising, most courses have them in, it's how some are sold so cheapily!).
The video does explain how the LMA system works and a little about their income streams etc, but really it does feel a bit like one of those webinars you sit through where you feel you are getting information, but in reality you probably haven't taken much away.
To really understand it, you are probably going to want to sign up too it, or join the 15 day challenge that Jacob provides you. The system itself is $30 a month, though you can still have a free membership and do the 15 day challenege.
What I liked About Dream Car Profits?
The course itself is nicely broken down into sections, and Jacob does deliver on his promise of giving you a number of different traffic strategies and ideas to kick start you on your own journey.
The advice he gives, is solid, and he provides his own real life examples, which is nice and does help you feel like you are on a journey together.
The course itself is short, and too the point, roughly around an hours worth of content, not including the sales pitch, so the whole thing doesn't take ages to get through and can easily be rewatched a few times to help you nail down the strategies.
The coaching and FB Groups videos I found particularly helpful, as other courses I had taken in the past didn't really tap into these areas, so that was refreshing to find.
What I Didn't Like About Dream Car Profits
After going through Franks Savage Affiliates training nearly 2 years ago, I did feel a little underwhelmed with the amount of content.
At the time I paid around $50 to get access into the course, which is about $9 a video. Which doesn't sound like a huge amount of money, but then again I felt some of the info could be found with a simple YouTube search. Jacob does put his own spin on things and obviously everything is quite concise and in one place, so super helpful.
I admit comparing a $50 to one that is $199 or $500 like Spencers is quite difficult, but even Franks course has over 20 hours of content, downloadable information, funnels and is getting even more content added soon. So that's nearly 20x the value.
The extra video around email, wasn't anything amazing and didn't blow my mind. With no written examples of good headers or subject lines, it felt like it had been a little rushed.
As I mentioned earlier the initial popup to grab your email to send you a sneak peak is then used in the next round for your checkout. If you throw a dummy email to essentially funnel hack, but then decide to purchase, you are going to be a little screwed until you email Jacob.
The final video really does feel like a sales pitch, and it makes you feel like the end goal is to try and guide you towards that other platform (not always a bad thing if that platform is helpful, and Jacob seems to think it's a great place).
Pricing And Access
The last time I checked the pricing was around $50, but Jacob has mentioned in the group that this price may rise soon (or may already have risen).
For the price, I felt there could have been more content, and I hope that Jacob is planning on releasing more just to bump up the value a little more.
He does provide some really good information, and strategies and as I mentioned two strategies I personally hadn't thought about much.
I think if you are 100% new to Affiliate Marketing and you want to learn the foundations or some baseline strategies, then this would be a good added extra that could go on top of something like Savage Affiliates.
If you use the strategies alongside learning the basics of affiliate marketing, then I feel this really will help you on your journey.

James started The Online Student as a typical blog telling people about his struggles and woes with DropShipping, Amazon FBA and even Affiliate marketing. He then decided that blogging about it all would give people the skills, knowledge and apps to get up and running (while making a little extra on the side). After a few months he realised it was quite lucrative and decided to work his ass off making it a bit more than just a hobby!
