A hard one to point, due to the fact they have different pricing points. But they are all worth their respective prices.
Ease of USe
Platform is fairly easy to navigate around and the videos etc are easy to watch.
As with pricing, this is difficult, but all the different products I have purchased so far have been heavy on content and value.
Not had an issue yet, the support team have been quick to reply and great with my questions.
Summary: A great platform that has been for a while shrouded in skepticism and people calling it a scam or a pay to play style platform, without much merit. The training and information given within the training and products are all valuable and useful. Some people wont like the funnel aspect of the platform, but that's down to personal preference.
You will find a lot of Legendary Marketer reviews across the internet, and most of them are quite divided in their opinion. While writing this Legendary Marketer Review, I came across a really large polarity, with very few sitting in the middle.
I found that either they are old reviews before Legendary 'cleaned up' shall we say, or they happen to have a hidden agenda *cough* Wealthy Affiliate*cough*. Or they are people who really love the product and obviously make a living from promoting it.
As such, I am going to try and be as unbiased as possible and offer the middle ground. Explaining what the platform is, what I like, what I don't like and even a few things I don't know much about but I have tried to find as much information as possible.
I will also look to answer some of the questions such as the background to legendary marketer, and how legendary marketer works as a platform.
It's taken me a long time to write this review, considering I have been part of the platform since I first read about it after going trough Jacobs Dream Car Profits course all those months ago, when I actually said it felt like a pitch for Legendary Marketer!
So, without a further a do, let's crack on with this Legendary Marketer Review.
What Is Legendary Marketer?
The simplest way to look at it, is to say Legendary Marketer is a marketing platform, stuffed full of funnels, products, training and opportunities. Some good, some maybe not so good.
There are around 11 different products and services on offer, I will go more into that later down this review.
Legendary Marketer Background
This platform was created by someone who could quite easily be classed as a super affiliate or even a super marketer, a guy called David Sharpe.
Now, his background is one of the reasons that many people called Legendary Marketer a scam, or saying it was fake, or even that Legendary Marketer was a ponzi scheme or MLM style offer
David Sharpe comes from another network or platform called Empower Network, which actually was a MLM, it was around the time when MLMs where common place (they still are..just more tightly regulated) and readily accepted in the world of making money online.
But the Empower Network eventually ran into trouble with the FTC in America, and all kinds of fun ensued, one of the major ones being a clampdown on how MLM's can work.
The Original Legendary Marketer Platform
Long before I started with Legendary Marketer, it used to be a members only club that you could only promote the product that you owned. Hence why many of the older reviews complain about the pricing model and affiliate structure.
Personally, I have no issue with only being able to promote what I own. It shows that I have gone through the training or platform and understood what I am selling. Obviously it can be annoying if a company has some huge up-sells that you just can't afford and they don't offer any % from that sale because you don't own it, but then you just don't promote the company. Full stop.
Others have argued, wrongly, that platforms such as Wealthy Affiliate (which is always the one that gets bought up, surprise surprise) don't do such a thing and that anyone can earn money with them. This is not true, with Wealthy Affiliate, if you are a free affiliate holder, you make a much smaller commission and are even locked out of some of the commissions, as apposed to being a paid up member. Again, I don't care that much either way, but don't get caught out by people throwing their dolls out of the prams about it.
It would also seem that the original Legendary Marketers price points, where a lot higher than they are now. With some of them going up to around $30k for some of their offers.
What Does Legendary Marketer Include?
Right, let's get onto the real reason anyone would read this Legendary Marketer Review, to fully understand what is included or what legendary marketer actually contains.
As you probably know, Legendary Marketer is a lead generation funnel, designed to offer really good offers at a low price point, and then slowly offer them higher priced items (which are still worth their weight in gold).
The Insiders Guide eBook
The Legendary Marketers Inside Guide eBook itself costs $1.99 and offers a 90 page guide to affiliate marketing.
It's designed to get any new affiliate marketer (or to be fairy, anyone) off on the right foot. It has been written to help those who are struggling or looking for a new focus with affiliate marketing.
There are 12ish chapters, broken down into 3 main parts.
Part 1. Foundation.
This part focuses on why affiliate marketing really does beat so many of the offer online businesses such as consultancy, ad agencies or ecom. It also explains why becoming that middle person between customer and product can be so profitable.
David also goes into the difference between product ticket tiers. People throw around low, medium and high ticket, but David has given a few commission tiers that make sense. It takes as much effort to promote a low ticket offer at $10 as it does to promote a $1000.
Part 2. The formula
David really expands on how to find the traffic you need to bring in those delicious leads. Leads drive most affiliate businesses, as without traffic or leads, you have nothing. Well, you have a pretty website. But that's it.
The insiders guide eBook moves onto explaining the actual affiliate domination formula. How David actually draws in hundreds of leads with 2 page websites and how to scale these pages to bring in hungry buyers.
Part 3. Longevity
A business is nothing if it can't last.
If your business cannot weather the storm, then its not a business, it's a fad. You need to grow your business to ensure it survives.
This whole chapter is about increasing conversions and how to grow your business, as well as growing yourself.
One of the things about the Legendary Marketer Affiliate Domination formula eBook is that it comes with around $900 worth of bonuses.
The eBook funnel actually gives you access to the 15 Day Challenge that you will find more about below, which obviously includes the ability to have a 1-1 consultation with a business adviser, who will help you set up and shape your affiliate business.
As well as giving access to David Sharpe's own Affiliate Domination Ad and email templates. These can be used to help you craft some pretty amazing ads or emails to draw in new leads or customers. He also gives him his own phone scripts, which is a little less useful for a lot of people, but for some its still useful.
Finally, grabbing this eBook actually gives you access to Legendary Marketers currently closed Affiliate group. At the time of writing, this is the only way to get access t this group.
15 Day Business Builder Challenge
The 15 day challenge is one of Legendary Marketers core products that it sells. It is designed to get a complete newbie to affiliate marketing from zero, to something that resembles a decent business within 15 days.
It is quite a hard few days, with videos, homework and quizzes designed to get as much information into your brain as possible in those 15 days.
One of the best things about the 15 day challenge from legendary marketer is that it comes with a a business consultant, or business advisor as they like to call them. They are designed to help you go from day 3 onward guiding you towards having that website or business set up, geared towards affiliate marketing.
You also get access to the same bonuses you would get with the Insiders eBook, but you don;t obviously get the eBook, and you also don;t get access to the 18,000 person strong Affiliate Facebook Group.
The Legendary Marketers first 'up-sell' after the Insider Guide eBook or 15 Day Business Builder challenge is the Marketers Club. The Marketers Club is a subscription or pay monthly training course designed to build upon the work you did within the 15 day challenge.
It is huge in its depth and breadth of information included. The core of the Marketers Club is 6 different core areas, that are further broken down into 5 - 15 videos per section.
Currently the different areas are;
- Kevin Harrington Interview (48 min)
- Mark Harbert Interview (103 min)
- Nathan Lucas Interview (86 min)
- The Journey to 250,000 Youtube Subscribers (149 min)
- What to Do and Say to sell more stuff (42 min)
- You’re One Story Away: How to Use Story to Succeed Online (56 min)
As well as these core modules, Legendary Marketer also run monthly lives and training sessions, designed to give you new information every single month. A bit like Wealthy Affiliate like to do, but with more value and less hating on everything else.
Every-time one of the trainers does a live based on a particular topic, from email marketing to Google or Bing ads, it will get added to the list.
This means you have a backlog of webinars and training, as well as new training to look forward too. In my ClickBank University Review I mentioned that it just wasn't worth it to keep paying the $40+ a month to access the site, as you got access to the training and nothing else was worth it, well, this is different. They have actually tried to make the Legendary Marketers Club worth the $30.
This is one of Legendary Marketers newer product releases, that dropped just before Christmas last year (2019).
The premise of the guide, or should I say 'formula' is that you can create multiple pieces of content for Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and more, from one single piece.
It allows you to keep creating and making content, without you running out of ideas, or content. As David said himself, it's about being Omnipresent, being everywhere at once.
The more eyes you get on your content, the more people you will likely reach, and potentially become buyers or readers.
I caught a snippet of some of the content when it was being launched, but haven't managed to get hold of it myself yet, mainly due to the fact I don't do a lot of video work, but for those who are putting out video content or want to start upping videos or live content, it's definitely worth checking out.
It's broken down into the following modules
- Module 1: The Omni-Branding Formula Foundation -
- Module 2: How To Find Your Million Dollar Message -
- Module 3: The 5-Minute Topic Hack -
- Module 4: My Complete Equipment List -
- Module 5: How to Outsource Everything For Pennies On The Dollar!
The Omni-Branding Formula costs $97, but it does come with a bunch of bonuses to help you increase your traffic, shorten the time you see results and also ads and templates to help you hire talent to automate! You can also grab this offer from within the Legendary Marketer platform, and is unlocked after completing the 15 Day Challenge.
From checking out other reviews and videos, people seem really happy with the formula, to this date I haven't picked it up, but that's mainly down to my style of online presence. I believe that one day I will grab the Omni Brand once I want to start being a bit more 'out there'.
Traffic Rolodex Bundle
We are now moving into what I like to call, Legendary Marketers, mid tier offerings. This is where the cost, but also the sheer amount of value starts to increase. As you go through the 15 Day Challenge, you are offered these products as a reduced cost, but you always have the option to come back to them (at a slightly higher cost) if you so choose.
The Traffic Rolodex is a product that could be sold for 4 - 10x the amount it's offered too Legendary Marketer members, and there are courses out there that do just that.
The Traffix Rolodex is essentially 8 individual courses, aimed at providing you with the core steps and details about how to advertise on social networks as well as native ad platforms.
You are going to be shown, click-by-click how to succeed with
- Google Display Networks
One of the reasons I think it's worth the money is the fact it's not some high level training where by an instructor just says 'create an ad that sends someone here'. They show you.
I purchased Google Ad training a year ago for $900, it came with a few guides and one or two templates, but it was missing the meat and potatoes. It didn't actually explain it all. Needless to say I got a refund within 5 days.
As with other parts of the legendary marketer platform, they also teach you how to create the landing pages, and how to increase the number of leads captured within it.
Moving along our journey with Legendary Marketer, we stop at the next offer that is presented to those who join the platform.
This is usually where people say the value of their products really starts to increase dramatically. The Business Blueprint is also the first of the 'high ticket' products that you can buy within the Legendary Marketer platform coming in at $25000 per Blueprint, these products are designed to give you absolutely everything to achieve your particular goal and fall into 4 main categories and blueprints.
It's worth noting that you can pick all 4 of these blueprints for a single ludicrous price, it usually gets offered at the end of the 15 day business builder challenge, so if you are interested in learning all 4, I would say pick this up quickly rather than waiting and paying $2500 each.
Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint
The first of the blueprints is perfect for those who just want to get on with Affiliate Marketing. It builds on the information you have learnt in the marketers club and really start to implement the ideas and methods required to get you hitting the ground running with affiliate marketing.
The training and blueprint is designed and geared towards David Sharpes favourite topic which is high ticket marketing. They teach and guide you towards finding and understanding the right products for you to promote. So it might be platforms such as Elite, which pay out $100 - $1k commissions directly or might be high value coaching for Fitness modules, it's not just tied towards one single niche or online area.
Promoting higher value products allow you to hit those goals and targets easier. It takes as much effort to promote a $7 product as it does to promote a $1k product, so why not aim for the one that pays higher commissions.
If you are wanting something that just gives you everything to get started with this world and basically hands it to you on a plate, then this Blueprint might be exactly what you need!
Digital Products Business Blueprint
Not everyone wants to sell other peoples products, instead they want to learn how to craft their own products and sell them. They want to become a vendor.
This particular blueprint is designed to help you take your knowledge, no matter what it might be and turn that into written courses, videos, audio products or anything that can be digitised and then sold to your audience.
The best part is that it's not all about just creating the product, it's also about finding the right platforms, learning how to deliver it and how to market your new digital product to your potential audience.
Coaching & Consulting Business Blueprint
My bread and butter, consulting can be a real ball-ache. I learnt how to become a business and IT consultant over 6 years of handwork and guessing. I had no blueprint or framework to follow, but I wish I did, it would have been so valuable, as coaching and consultancy can be used across so many different areas.
As with the others, you are given everything you may need to start building your own work from home empire.
Aimed at teaching and showing people how to start coaching, teaching and consulting others on your chosen niche or area, how to sell and then also how to scale and increase your profits!
Events & Masterminds Business Blueprint
Events and masterminds can be a licence to print money, and can be a great way of bringing in leads and potential business. Designed to provide a ton of value for a certain price point to a huge number of people in one go.
A lot of people have moved away from live events or masterminds to focus on webinars or talking via messenger, so becoming an events guru can allow you to stand out from the crowd.
This blue print, much like the others focuses on how you can plan, build, host and then of course scale your masterminds or events. It will also cover aspects of finding and hiring help, businesses and of course facilities to help with building your business.
This is one of the Blueprints that I am really interested in taking this year, especially as I feel it can build upon my speaking and building rapport.
Legendary Marketer Mastermind & Legendary Marketer Accelerators
The last 3 products available, are for those who basically want to be guided step by step and given absolutely everything.
The Accelerator programs, both the standard and Ultra are live experiences with a 1-1 mentor whereby you can go from 0-Hero, sometimes with others around you, sometimes simply you and your mentor.
The only way you can get access too this is via talking to the Business Adviser, who will find and book these sessions, as well as explaining in detail what they contain.
Be prepared to spend some big bucks on these particular events, with the lowest one being $4,995 and then Ultra Accelerator costing $14.995.
How Does Legendary Marketer Work?
As you can see from the above products and training available, Legendary Marketer works by offering different curriculum to entrepreneurs and business owners to help them to branch out and learn new skills or build new businesses based on a variety of different areas.
The training is provided by videos and downloadable content found within the Legendary Marketer platform, accessible anywhere with an internet connection.
Each product is set out with what Legendary Marketer call curriculum's, essentially being given a set number of lessons (it's like being back at University!).
With the challenge, each day is locked until you have marked off your work and completed everything. The Rolodex and Affiliates Marketing Club etc are just provided in one big format with all the information given to you in one go so you can go through each at your own pace.
How Much Is Legendary Marketer?
As there are a number of different products within the legendary marketer platform, there is a range in pricing for these products.
The lowest product currently costs just $1.99 for the Insider eBook providing you with the basics of affiliate marketing (which comes with around $900 worth of bonuses) , rising up to the $14,995 Ultra Accelerator, providing you with pretty much everything you need to get up and running with a huge variety of businesses within the Legendary Marketers world.
The different products and pricing cater for nearly every person in this particular space, so if you are a new entrepreneur to building online businesses to being a 5 time millionaire looking to expand that out even further.
What I Like About Legendary Marketer?
For me, one of the biggest draws for Legendary Marketer is the value that comes from their products. The basics challenge and eBook both come with around $900 worth of bonuses attached too them, including having access to mentors and training.
Even the $30/month Marketers club provides a ton more value than other services within the same market, for example Wealthy Affiliate. Wealthy Affiliate comes in at $49 a month, but doesn't provide new training, interviews and lives from marketers. The same can be said for ClickBank University, which is also around $40 a month, for stale and old training that doesn't really get updated.
The training and videos etc themselves are in depth and valuable, and in my opinion better than some of the other videos you might get for similar priced training sites.
I love the fact you can also get started at such a low price point, and you are completely in control about what level you want to go to. Most people I speak too sit with the Marketers Club, as it's within their price point.
The ones who do go for the Blue Prints always say they have done it because the value and the information inside is well worth the money and they felt they had complete control!
Finally, I like the fact that not everyone can promote or get access too Legendary Marketer. For example, just because you have some experience knowledge, it doesn't mean you will fit in with Legendary's vision, and you may still be rejected to promote it.
The same for those who have no experience, Legendary actively wants you to become legendary yourself, so that they know they have people who promote them in ethical ways, without spamming links or doing negative marketing.
Multiple Streams Of Income
For those who go through the Business Builder challenge, and then some of the other training will notice that Legendary Marketer actually offer other platforms to use to help you succeed. These include BuilderAll, ClickFunnels and email responders like GetResponse and Aweber.
As an affiliate you can actually add your own affiliate ID's in the back-end, so when they are promoted or shown to your affiliates, they are given your ID's. This can increase the total value of each customer, from a fairly small $30 to much higher amounts such as $47 - $150+ per month.
I really enjoy the fact that someone else will promote products or services on my behalf, and it allows you to step away from that particular aspect of it.
What I Don't Like About Legendary Marketer?
I only have two issues with Legendary Marketer, and it's something I have bought up in the past.
Two Tier Commissions
If you are successful in being accepted into the affiliate program for Legendary Marketer, you get access to two separate tiers. The completely free option, whereby you don't have to do anything aside from sharing your link and being paid for it. This is all well and good, but you only get rewarded with 10 - 30% of the commission.
Legendary Marketer used to get called out for being pay to play, having to own products to promote them, i.e having to own the $15k product to actually promote it to someone else, which I have always felt is a bit off.
Considering Legendary is a large funnel and you have little to no influence over someone deciding to buy the higher tiers, so why should you be punished if someone you bought onto the platform decides to buy something you may not have been able to afford.
Though luckily we don't have that issue anymore. But, we do still have the fact that if you just want to promote legendary marketer, as they teach within the 15 day business builder and the on going training, without paying, you will only get a fraction of the commission.
For those who want to access the higher commissions, you will need to pay $30 a month for the privilege? I guess is the second step to ensuring that less people actually go on to promote legendary?
It's no secret that the Legendary Marketer Platform is built as a funnel, with the low product designed to bring people onto the platform, and then other products promoted too each customer as they go through. But it can get a little annoying.
My largest annoyance with it, is that sometimes it feels like you haven't quite managed to finish the first thing, such as the 15 day challenge before offering to sell you more training or higher tier products.
I appreciate the value and the information you get in these other products, but maybe let someone finish the first part, have a breather and really understand what they have just learnt before throwing them the next product too them.
Is Legendary Marketer A Scam?
The short answer to this is no. Legendary Marketer is not a scam and it's not fraudulent.
It does have it's quirks, slightly shady past, some bad habits and a few annoyances, but it's not a scam.
People have called LM out for all kinds of things such as being a MLM company, and even a pyramid scheme, which is a little hard to fathom. Most of the voices calling Legendary out are just trying to promote other platforms such as Wealthy Affiliate, or even ClickFunnels.
Yep, someone said Legendary Marketer was multilevel marketing, while asking people to sign up to a platform that recently had to ban people from sharing funnels, designed to share funnels. Let that sink in.
Well, after weighing both the pros and cons of Legendary Marketer, I believe it really is worth it for the price.
You can get started and learn the basics of affiliate marketing for around $2 - $7, and start really getting into the interesting stuff for $30, which is a great price considering the on going support and information you are given.
The higher ticket offers are drenched in their own value, far beyond the original price, and they can really take you from 0 - Hero if you put your mind too it.
One thing I found while writing this legendary marketer review is that lots of people are still hung up on old reviews and posts, long before Legendary decided to make sweeping changes. I believe it's worth investing in their low ticket items and seeing how much value you can get from them.
Where To Buy Legendary Marketer
The only way you can get started with the Legendary Marketer platform is one of two ways. Either grabbing the Affiliate Domination Formula eBook or grabbing the Legendary Marketer Business Builder Challenge. Either of these will get you on your way with Legendary Marketer.
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!
