JVZoo Academy claims to be “your all-in-one marketing training solution” that shows you how the top dog marketers are raking in $1,000s per week from JVZoo.
But will you really be rolling in the cash and join the Super ELITE marketers club or is it a load of “GURU” baloney, huh?
Stick around if you want the honest truth!
Name: JVZoo Academy (JA).
Cost: Free + $27 + $488 in upsells.
Owners: Sam Bakker + JVZoo.
My Score: 3/10.
But before you check out this review for the lowdown on Bakker’s platform, see the best way of earning an affiliate income on the web…
What’s The Idea Behind JVZoo & ‘JA’?
Simply put, JVZoo is a marketing platform which not only gives digital product creators the opportunity to easily sell their stuff, but it’s also a chance for affiliate marketers to earn commissions from promoting those products.
The marketplace is no different from, let’s say, Clickbank. Except it’s a GAZILLION times better than Clickbank, in my book!
When it comes to ‘JA’ – it’s a step-by-step blueprint designed to show you every process and system, that Sam Bakker himself, has personally implemented to become a 7-figure earner over a 3-year period.
The training platform will allow you to learn at your own speed, provides you with numerous case studies, and heaps of income proof.
Plus there’s a community available for help and support.
I’ll be diving into the ins and outs of ‘JA’ very shortly. So hang tight, my young grasshopper!
Who is Gonna Benefit From ‘JA’?
You’ll be pleased to here that the program will benefit both affiliates and product creators.
So whichever path you choose, Sam will show you how to make money from both sides of the coin, which I think is very rare with most marketing training programs you come across these days.
Let’s raise a glass to that! Cheers.
OK, Time to Jump Into The Training
‘Sam the Man’ has put together an in-depth “step-by-step” training system that’s combined of video walk-through tutorials, downloadable guides, his own work processes, and also cheat sheets.
Once you enter your name and email for access to the program, there’s a “Start Here” video on the biggest mistakes people make when they’re first getting started online with marketing and building a business.
Additionally, Sam discusses the basics of how affiliate marketing works and the two things you need for making money online:
- Selling products.
- Building an email list and creating a relationship with your subscribers.
However, after the short video, I didn’t receive a “step 2” training video in my inbox (as promised by Sam).
Plus the ‘7 Days Case Study’ and ‘The Fastest Way to Get Started’ are locked for some unknown reason.
So to say that ‘JA’ is “free” on the sales page is misleading, to say the least, especially when there’s no actual training. GRRR!
But hey-ho, I still bought in lol.
When you pay your 27 bucks, you get access to:
Well, STILL very little!!
You’ll get ripped off (just like I did) because there’s “ZERO” training – UNLESS you spend more money on the upsells, which I’ll discuss in two shakes of a lamb’s tail.
So, What do You Actually Get For $27?
Unfortunately, you only get access to support and a number of bonuses via a series of steps.
There are 7 simple steps to follow:
Step #1: Join the Facebook group.
Except the button leads you back to the main ‘JA’ sign up page.
But I did find the ‘JA’ group on Facebook itself which has a good sized community of over 4K members’.
#2: Check your email for your login and password.
#3: Save the login link.
#4: Download your promised bonuses.
You get 7 bonuses: Video script software, a video sales blueprint, WP profit doubler software, WP testimonial pro, WP tube monetizer as well as maximizer, and marketing graphics toolkit v3.
#5: Save the support desk URL.
#6: Buy into 3 ‘One-Time-Offers’ (OTOs).
#7: Register for special webinars.
And that’s it, there’s not one single step for walk-through training on building a successful online business with JVZoo products.
So much for forking out $27, hey?
What’s The Overall Cost of The System?
To get started with ‘JA’ is free. But you don’t get any value (apart from a short video from Sam).
For the basic entry point into the system will cost $27. But you get jack sh*t for your money (pardon my French) lol.
Then come the upsells:
#1 – ‘JA Mastery’ is $67 one-time. It’s a proven passive income system which promises results in 2 weeks or less.
#2 – ‘JA Page Builder’ is $27 one-time. You get Drag n’ Drop page building software with high-converting templates.
#3 – ‘JA Membership Site Creator’ is $27/month or $297 one-time. It allows you to turn your hobby or passion into content to sell inside your own membership site.
#4 – ‘The 60-Day Ultimate Success Plan’ is $97 one-time. It’s a daily blueprint for success that shows you how to profit from working just one hour per day.
To me, it’s perfectly clear that to make money with Sam’s system, you will need to take him up on his tool and training offers.
PROS vs CONS of ‘JA’
- Help & Support is available
- Webinars to sign up for
- 30-day money back guarantee
- No ‘Case Study’, ‘Getting Started on JVZoo’ training or ‘How To’ walk-through guides to download “as promised” when you join free?!
- $27 gets you a bunch of basic steps to do, BUT no training?!
- You must invest in the upsells to make progress
- The Facebook support group isn’t that active when it comes to member posts
My Final Take…
I was really looking forward to taking JVZoo Academy for a spin and writing a decent review on the program.
But obviously, it’s not the case because Sam/JVZoo disappointed me, BIG time!!
Firstly, for some strange reason, I didn’t get the no-cost training and resources that are promised when you become a free member.
There’s just a short intro video on affiliate marketing/making money. UGH.
Secondly, I didn’t get diddly-squat (training-wise) for my $27 investment. UGH.
The Bottom Line: Yeah, you may make some money from buying the upsells and implementing the training/using the tools.
But then again, why should you purchase any upgrades with ‘JA’, when you get “ZERO VALUE” from both the free and basic $27 membership levels?
Until Sam actually provides what he promises, then I’m not recommending his training platform, even if it is LEGIT.
BTW, I have requested a $27 refund from JVZoo for selling me “fresh air” lol.
Instead, see a much better platform – one that actually does provide you with tools, step-by-step training, and 24/7 support (without upsells) for making money online as an affiliate marketer…
