Who is John Crestani
The story goes that the 21 year-old was hanging out in Thailand having borrowed the money from his parents with a plan to ‘find himself’. While out there, he read various religious texts but the book that spoke to him on the deepest level was Tim Ferriss’s The Four Hour Work Week.
(Check out Tim’s excellent blog, conveniently named The Four Hour Work Week.)
From this point on, John was on a mission to use his skills to create an online income. If you have ever built a business online, you will know that it doesn’t happen overnight!
You can read more about John’s journey in the brilliantly titled, How A 28-Year-Old Got Fired Then Built A $500K-A-Month Business While Traveling The World published by Forbes.com.
Long story short, John Crestani has earned a massive amount of money through Affiliate Marketing so he is absolutely qualified to teach this content. Also, he has a lovely, easy going style which makes following the training really enjoyable.
What is included in the Course?
Week 1 covers the system set up and shares how to join affiliate networks, create presell pages (a one-page website also known as a landing page), Facebook ad targeting and ad creation along with some common mistakes.
Week 2 goes on to explain how to set up Google ads including keyword research, how to set up the conversions pixels and advising how to avoid common errors.
Week 3 moves on to how to set up YouTube ads, how to set up your channel and again, how to avoid common mistakes. This is not such an in-depth tutorial and you might need to study YouTube ads in greater depth if this is going to be a main source of lead generation.
Week 4 goes more into depth into advanced Facebook advertising and he also introduces some top industry experts. Tim Burd (spoiler alert, Tim is ‘the Godfather’ of Facebook ads), is introduced to share details on how to keep compliant with Facebook.
Brian Pfeiffer, a massively successful internet marketer shares advice on how to break through (check out his keynote speech re how he earned $100,000 in one month) and Ronnie Sandlin who is known for his ability to ‘turn words into money’.
Week 5 gets into detail about preselling pages, how to split test, how to scale and mistakes to avoid. Unfortunately, one of the mistakes to avoid is creating your own pre-selling page which is apparently a big no-no. Clickfunnels is the recommended way to go, and while I believe that it is sound advice, it will cost you extra to take this route.
Week 6 is about the important topic of picking your niche and finding affiliate offers on Clickbank and through other sources.
Additions to John’s previous course
The latest version of John’s course includes access to the ‘Internet Jetset’ course which was an early version of the training previously charged at $47 per month.
The entire Super Affiliate System course has been extended and updated to reflect the current practices in everything he teaches. No matter which version you sign up for, you will always get the very latest available.
Pros of Super Affiliate System Pro
- John Crestani is teaching what has made him a fortune – he is the real deal (despite flashing his cash in the webinar which I have to say I found very distasteful – sorry, John)
- He has a simple and very likable style which makes following along easy
- He has mastered Facebook advertising and shares everything that works
- He is sharing the actual ads that work for him and others
- You can access proven copy and landing pages instead of starting from scratch
- He shares his data so you can create look-alike audiences on Facebook – I can’t think of anyone else who does this
- There are weekly training calls where John can assess your ads and a Facebook group for support
- He has lots of evidence of the success of his students
- It’s not a cheap course, but you do get lots of quality training, particularly in the area of paid ads
- Money back guarantee (always check the T&C’s though)
Cons of Super Affiliate System Pro
- Paid advertising, despite using a tried and tested formula, can be risky and there are no guarantees your ads will work
- You need a significant investment to get started, run paid ads and sign up for Clickfunnels
- Having lots of people running the same videos and images in Facebook ads could lead to a Facebook ban
My experience of running Facebook ads
Just as an aside, I would like to share what I found when I started running Facebook ads. I was with a network marketing company and wanted to find a way to retail the products online instead of trying to sell to family and friends. (If this is you, check out my post ‘How To Sell MLM Products – Without Being Annoying’.)
I did lots of research and found that videos get the best response so went to great pains to produce what I thought was a really nice ad, did all my keyword research and was so excited when I launched my ad – only to have it disapproved. Why? Because it focused on only one body part and may cause insecurities in the viewer.
I am not joking! I appealed but they wouldn’t let me run it – it was for a face cream! You can encounter the same issues with Google. Sometimes they will communicate with you and sometimes not which is why I prefer to go with organic traffic. Putting my entire business in the hands of Google or Facebook is not an option (although I have to concede it has worked for John Crestani).
Should you buy Super Affiliate System Pro?
If this is the sort of business model and tuition you have been looking for (i.e. learning about paid advertising with instructions how to implement) then this would be a good course for you. Check out the webinar here. (Warning – it is long! Make sure you have some drinks and snacks handy!)
If you are looking to start a business on a shoestring (or I think they say ‘bootstrapping it’ in the U.S.), then look for something you can start cheaply or free and focus on driving free traffic to a website. Only do this if you are prepared to work for 6-months plus before seeing results as this approach takes time.
If you are keen to start making money online there is course out there for you. You can try to teach yourself, but at the end of the day, you really need to learn from someone who has trodden the path before and a community that will be there when you are stuck (and you will get stuck!)
I gave up on my network marketing business in the end, signed up for a Free Affiliate Marketing Course and haven’t looked back.
Have you signed up for any courses? I would love to know which ones and how they worked out for you. Please let me know in the comments.
