“Your income is directly related to your philosophy, NOT the economy.” – Jim Rohn
What we liked:
- Cheap (small, one time fee) front end products are packed with value
- The focus isn’t ENTIRELY on just promoting Legendary Marketer
- Clear and easy-to-use affiliate backend
- $30 per month Legendary Marketer s Club has great, constantly updating content
What we didn’t like:
- Commission rates are different depending on if you pay to become a PRO affiliate
- Some products are hard to find/buy in the ecosystem if you decide to buy them after a webinar
- Each program only covers a small part of the overall skills necessary to run a profitable online business
- No guarantee you’ll be accepted into the Legendary Marketer affiliate program
At some point on your internet marketing journey, you’ll probably end up going down the affiliate marketing rabbit hole. Everyone does at one point or another.
It usually happens right around the time the imposter syndrome hits. You feel like you can’t build your own course or training program that provides enough value to potential students.
Or you don’t think you have the skills to run an effective agency.
Or maybe you just really like the idea of selling stuff for someone else without creating your own product. So you can focus on just driving traffic and collecting fat affiliate commissions.
Either way, you’re probably here because you’ve decided to become (or are at least considering becoming) an affiliate marketer.
And you’ve likely come across David Sharpe’s course, Legendary Marketer.
I was like you at one time: really excited about the idea of becoming an affiliate without really understanding what it entails. But unlike you, I jumped in right away and got in way over my head.
So good on you for being an informed customer and doing your research before buying.
Most folks fall for the sales pitch right away, so it’s smart that you’re taking some extra steps instead of just diving in.
In this Legendary Marketer review, I want to give you a rundown on all the different products inside the Legendary Marketer ecosystem (and there’s a lot).
I also want to have a short discussion on whether or not becoming an affiliate is right for you at this stage of your journey.
And finally, I want to show you what I believe is hands-down the number one way to make a lot of money online in any market…recession, pandemic, or anything else.
But we’ll talk more about that later. For now, let’s get into it.
What is Legendary Marketer?
The world of Legendary Marketer is an entire ecosystem of products developed by David Sharpe, who claims to have done over $250 million in online sales in his career.
The product suite consists of low, medium, and high-ticket products: courses, coaching programs, systems, events and masterminds.
Even a 15 day challenge that you can get access to for free!
Most are unlocked by paying a one-time fee, while a few are monthly memberships.
All of them promise to help you make money online through affiliate marketing.
Later in this review, we’ll discuss whether you should purchase any of the one-time Legendary Marketer products, or become a monthly member.
Is Affiliate Marketing Easy?
In a word: no.
While every affiliate program promises you can easily make money online by throwing up some ads, sending some emails, and driving traffic to a landing page, it’s not really that simple.
Online marketing, especially as an affiliate, is far more complicated than clicking a few buttons and collecting affiliate commissions.
No matter how well the opportunity is presented.
Not to mention you spend most of your time selling low-ticket products, with the occasional customer upgrading to a high-ticket option.
But what if you could skip all that? Skip the headache of selling cheap front end products, building complex sales funnels, and messing with paid traffic?
What if instead, you could sell a high ticket product right out the gate?
And what if the customer paid you month after month?
And what if, instead of settling for a 10-50% affiliate commission, your profit margins were 90% or higher?
This is what I do to bring in over $50,000 per month, and in my opinion, it’s the best way to build a successful online business.
Still curious about Legendary Marketer though? Read on…
Who is David Sharpe?
Look, it’s easy to pick on anyone who came out of the dark days of MLM. David Sharpe is one of those people.
An alum of Empower Network, it would be easy to write off David Sharpe and Legendary Marketer as a scam.
But in all honesty, I was pretty surprised. David has a pretty clean reputation, even if at one time he was part of the seedy underworld of internet marketing.
Plus, he has a great zero to hero story, battling drug addiction and homelessness in his teens to becoming a “self-made” success and famous marketer today.
Even though Empower Network and most of its affiliates got burned when that company went down, I wouldn’t throw the Legendary Marketer products in the same category by any means.
For an affiliate program, I was impressed! It’s less of a shady business opportunity and more of a real training system.
How does Legendary Marketer Work?
At its core, the Legendary Marketer ecosystem is one gigantic sales funnel (and an impressive one at that).
You first become a member by purchasing a front end product for a small one time fee of $1-2.
Then, you escalate through the company’s value ladder.
Their free 15-day Online Business Builder Challenge is designed to make you a more active user of their product.
Then, once you’re hooked, you begin ascending further up the funnel.
The training itself is focused on internet marketing in general, with a specific focus on affiliate marketing.
And a bit of a spoiler alert: one of the best ways to make money online with Legendary Marketer is to become an affiliate…using the training to convince other people to join Legendary Marketer.
Normally, this approach turns me off. But because in this case, the product is actually good, I’m less offended by this blatant money grab.
What’s Inside Legendary Marketer?
Like I mentioned earlier in this Legendary Marketer review, there is a whole host of products available for you to buy.
Some of the cheaper ones are simple PDFs, but most offerings involve some kind of video training. At the high end, there’s obviously one on one mentoring and coaching.
Let’s go through them one by one.
Insider’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing – Legendary Marketer eBook
Like the title implies, this is an ebook about affiliate marketing. Considering it costs $1.99, I was pretty skeptical.
That’s one step up from free, and I expected the contents to reflect that. Nothing but fluff you could find online.
Boy, was I wrong. For less than $2, you get a value-packed primer on the affiliate marketing industry and the business opportunity around promoting Legendary Marketer.
I work with an amazing copywriter, so when I saw an entire copywriting course for $1, it definitely raised an eyebrow.
But again, Legendary Marketer delivers.
I highly doubt you’ll be writing million-dollar ad copy after this course, but David definitely provides value in this 8-module video course.
You’ll get a good understanding of how to write copy that turns strangers into customers, and considering copy is an invaluable skill for all marketing, this course is a dollar well spent.
15-Second Free Leads
Now this is interesting for sure. TikTok is taking the world by storm, and the ability to get in on the ground floor of a new social media platform is huge.
I still remember the early days of Facebook ads, when you could spent $1 and make $10 back. Those days are long gone, but this course (also a $1 one time fee) helps you capitalize on the next wave.
Because of TikTok’s unique algorithm, you don’t need to spend months or years creating perfectly curated content and building an audience.
TikTok allows you to quickly gain traction and draw new people to you. It basically serves as a lead source that isn’t paid traffic (always nice to save some cash).
I have to do more research, but given how good the other two products are at this price, may as well throw a buck at this one and see what happens.
15-Day Online Business Builder Challenge
Here’s where things start to get intense. If you thought a $1 or $2 book or course was good value, imagine a free two-week course that includes personalized coaching.
That’s what you get with the 15 day online business builder challenge.
Like the name implies, the challenge has 15 days of lessons to help you with the building blocks of an online business.
Once you get started, you’ll get connected with a “business advisor”. Now, don’t get too excited.
Your advisor is most likely a sales rep or former student who gets paid to upgrade you to one of the more expensive items Legendary Marketer offers.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Like I said earlier, the products are good. And this Legendary Marketer review isn’t meant to push you one way or another.
It’s really just to lay out the facts, so you can make an informed decision.
So if you want to keep moving up through the Legendary Marketer funnel, the 15 day business builder challenge is the logical next step.
If you purchase one of the 3 front end products we previously discussed, you get the online business builder challenge for free.
Or, you can buy it standalone for $7 one time if you want. Plenty of 0ptions.
But maybe you want to just skip all the playing around, and just jump into an all in one mentoring program that includes real one on one coaching without having to go through a million upsells.
If that’s more your game, click here to get all the details.
Legendary Marketers Club
Once you graduate from the 15 day business builder challenge, you’ll likely get upsold into the Legendary Marketers Club.
This is a monthly membership product. So instead of paying a one time fee, you’ll be paying about $30 per month.
Now, I know we’re all up to our eyeballs in monthly subscriptions, so the last thing you probably need is another one.
But the Marketer s Club might just be enough to boot out 2 of the 5 streaming services you’re holding onto.
You’ll get exclusive interviews with 6 and 7 figure students, along with other successful entrepreneurs and marketers.
You’ll get to see private trainings on specific online marketing topics, like building a massive audience on YouTube, and using stories to sell.
Plus, you get weekly live training webinars (not the “free masterclass -> buy my course” types), and as a member of the Marketer s Club, you get access to all the replays.
Traffic Rolodex Bundle
The lifeblood of any affiliate business is traffic. If you don’t have a continuous flow of new prospects coming into your funnel, joining your email list, and clicking your affiliate links, you’re dead in the water.
Legendary Marketer offers two solutions to this problem. The first is the Traffic Rolodex Bundle.
Priced at $247, this product is a primer on all the main sources of paid traffic “legendary marketers” use to build their businesses and passive income streams.
The Rolodex has 8 modules covering:
- Google AdWords
- Facebook Ads
- Google Display Network (GDN)
- Instagram Ads
- Landing Pages
- Native Ads
- Twitter Ads
Purchasing the Rolodex will give you a good understanding of the most important traffic sources.
Additionally, you should be able to get this as a free bonus when purchasing one of the Business Blueprints we’ll discuss below. It’s a good way to get started with traffic, but it’s nowhere near enough detail to really thrive. It’s more a high-level overview of each. So you can get your feet wet with some different
After purchasing the Rolodex, you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade to Traffic University. This is a huge step up from the previous traffic course, and will cost you $1,497.
Legendary Marketer boasts that Traffic University isn’t simply a course, but rather a suite of 9 different courses diving deep into 9 different traffic sources.
Instead of teaching the course themselves, Legendary Marketer teamed up with AdSkills. The company is well regarded as one of the top authorities on paid traffic. Normally, these courses would cost you $5,000 if you bought them directly from AdSkills.
But since you’re buying them from Legendary Marketer instead, you get a special discount (the $1,497 price point I mentioned above).
Ok, here’s where we get into more of the high-ticket offerings.
On the second day of the 15 Day Challenge, David Sharpe explains what he believes are the four best high-ticket business models: affiliate marketing, digital products, events & masterminds, and coaching & consulting.
Naturally, he and your business advisor will then try to get you to purchase a more expensive product dedicated to one of these areas:
- Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint
- Digital Products Business Blueprint
- Coaching and Consulting Business Blueprint
- Events and Masterminds Business Blueprint
If you purchase any of these Blueprints from the Legendary Marketer website on their own, you’d be paying $2,500 each.
However, during the 15 day challenge (where you’re learning how to become a “business builder”), you’ll have the one-time opportunity to buy ALL FOUR for that price. Basically, that’s an immediate discount of $7,500.
Let’s do a deep dive into each of these:
Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint
Of course Legendary Marketer would have a high-priced product for the aspiring affiliate marketer. It’s the most natural progression from the cheaper front end products.
Most people dream of a business that runs round the clock, bringing in affiliate commissions practically on autopilot. And that’s just what this Blueprint promises.
This course is a deep dive into everything it takes to become an affiliate marketer OR run your own affiliate program.
It takes you through everything from building a list to managing an affiliate backend. From figuring out how to choose the right high-commission products, to finding effective affiliates to promote YOU.
Digital Products Business Blueprint
People have been selling digital products practically since the birth of the internet. And when ClickFunnels burst onto the scene, things only got more intense.
Suddenly, everyone and their mom had a course, masterclass, e-book, or some other nonsense.
So how do you stand out from the never ending onslaught of trainings, PDFs, and 7-day challenges? Well, buy the Digital Products Business Blueprint, of course!
Legendary Marketer promises the same thing most people who sell digital products about digital products do: avoid the shipping, manufacturing, and logistics headaches that come with physical goods.
Get higher margins, and get to market faster!
Sounds great, right? Well, you still need a traffic course to learn how to actually sell the product. At the full $2,500 price point, I’d definitely call this a no.
Coaching and Consulting Business Blueprint
Here’s a product that speaks to a specific type of person…Legendary Marketer pitches this Blueprint to people who’d rather be a business of one.
Maybe you’ve got some unique skills, or you don’t want to deal with the headaches an affiliate marketer or online guru does.
Maybe you’d rather build a personal brand with a more intimate deliverable, so you focus more on relationships as opposed to scaling to the moon.
In that case, the Coaching and Consulting Business Blueprint may be for you.
Legendary Marketer promises to teach you how to identify your niche, create a killer offer, and close clients. They also claim to show you how to actually deliver these services AND scale.
Frankly, I think these promises are sexier than what you get inside the program.
If you want a way to combine the relationship benefits of one-on-one service with the passive income of affiliate marketing or digital products, click here to see my number one choice for an online business.
You can get started with this unique, low-competition business almost immediately.
Events and Masterminds Business Blueprint
Here’s a great way to make a lot of money all at one time: host a live event or start a mastermind.
Naturally, selling a bunch of tickets to an event can bring in a nice chunk of change all at once (especially since many specialty events/conferences cost anywhere from $300 to $5,000 to attend).
And if you’ve established yourself as an expert, running a mastermind is an excellent high-margin way to make a ton of cash while still working one on one and developing close relationships.
Legendary Marketer promises to help you do these profitably with the Events & Masterminds Business Blueprint.
Part of the problem with all these high ticket products is that they only give you one piece of the puzzle.
It’s especially annoying because you shouldn’t have to buy ten different programs in order to get everything you need to run a successful online enterprise.
You should have everything in one place for a one time investment. Like this program.
Coaching, Masterminds, and Live Events
Since Legendary Marketer sells programs showing you how to run your own coaching business, masterminds, and live events, it only makes sense that they have their own offerings in that vein too.
With the current state of the world, most of the events are online. And many are included in either the Legendary Marketer Mastermind or the private coaching offered by David Sharpe.
Both of these offers are application based, meaning there’s a chance you may not be allowed in.
Regardless, these will be your heftiest investments. The cheapest Legendary Marketer Mastermind costs $8,000, and the most expensive is $30,000.
Legendary Builder Masterclass
This program isn’t currently publicly available, but it’s basically a four-part fundamental program on building an online business. It includes things like telling your story in a compelling way, improving your sales skills, and portraying yourself as an authority. I’m pretty sure this program was folded into the 15 day challenge and is likely no longer available.
Legendary Leader Masterclass
This program is also unavailable as of this writing. But if you’re interested in scaling your business without having to be the one grinding it out 20 hours a day, this would be the purchase for you. I think this Masterclass was discontinued to make one of the Masterminds more appealing.
Legendary Marketer Affiliate Program
For those who get accepted into the program, becoming an affiliate and promoting Legendary Marketer is a pretty sweet deal.
All you have to do is introduce new prospects to the ecosystem through one of the cheap $1-2 items we talked about.
However, once they’re in, you get a commission on EVERYTHING else they buy. So if someone buys the Copywriter’s Playbook, then during the 15 day challenge they upgrade to a Business Blueprint, you get a nice check on that $2,500 sale.
Plus, you get a recurring monthly commission on the Legendary Marketer s Club, since that has a monthly fee.
The best part, in my opinion, is that you get affiliate links for, and can therefore promote everything in the Legendary Marketer catalog, and you’re not strictly limited to stuff you yourself have purchased.
But obviously, that’s only if you’re accepted as an affiliate to begin with, and that’s not guaranteed.
Plus, you will have to pay your own monthly fee of $30/month if you want to capitalize on the highest commission rates (part of being a PRO affiliate).
Is Legendary Marketer Legit?
Most reviews of Legendary Marketer seem to suggest that the company is legit. That said, most of those reviews are literally people trying to sell Legendary Marketer as an affiliate.
I’ve seen reviews of the entire ecosystem, as well as reviews of specific programs (Legendary Marketer s Club, The 15 Day Challenge, etc.).
Almost all of them are just trying to sell something as a Legendary Marketer affiliate.
That’s annoying, but I’m guessing most of these reviews actually turn into sales, so I guess they’re legit since what they teach actually works?
Is Legendary Marketer a Scam?
I definitely wouldn’t call Legendary Marketer a scam. But I will say that the company is blocked from selling in a number of countries, which does raise a few red flags.
It also limits your potential to make affiliate commissions, because the number of folks you can sell to is limited as a result.
But what if I told you there was a way to still get uncapped, monthly passive income WITHOUT jumping through all the hoops Legendary Marketer puts up?
What if instead of reading review after review, I just gave you the secret to my online success and $50k months?
What if I let you skip the bullshit and jump straight onto the fast-track?
If that sounds more appealing than buying another program with no personal support or one-on-one coaching, then click here to discover a better way!
Is Legendary Marketer a Pyramid Scheme?
Affiliate marketers love to make their own money by training other people to promote their product or company. I mean, it makes perfect sense…
You just learned how to sell other people’s products for a commission, so why not start with this one?
Now, I know that can scream “pyramid scheme” or “scam”, so I don’t blame you for jumping to that conclusion.
That said, you can take the skills you learn from Legendary Marketer and use them to sell anything, and build an affiliate business in any niche.
And like I said earlier, these offerings are actually good. So you could do a lot worse than promoting Legendary Marketer.
Is Legendary Marketer Free?
Nope. Everything in their ecosystem costs money. And frankly, that doesn’t really bother me. It prevents freebie seekers from wasting time and resources in their funnel.
Besides, you can’t exactly earn a commission on a free item, now can you?
How Much does Legendary Marketer Cost?
Like I said above, Legendary Marketer isn’t a single thing you can buy…it’s a whole ecosystem of offerings at various prices, from $1 all the way up to $30,000.
How does Legendary Marketer Make Money?
By selling stuff.
Is Legendary Marketer Worldwide?
Nope. It’s blocked in a whole bunch of countries.
Should I Become an Affiliate Marketer?
I mean, I wouldn’t. Read on to find out why.
Does Affiliate Marketing Still Work in 2020?
Yeah, but unfortunately it’s getting more competitive than ever. It’s getting more and more expensive to consistently generate sales as an affiliate. And to be honest, the folks who are on your list are likely on 50 other lists as well. Meaning the chances of you landing those precious sales is getting harder and harder by the day.
Can you Really Make Money with Affiliate Marketing?
Sure you can. But do you want to spend the next 3-5 years fumbling with ads, building a list, and crossing your fingers hoping to sell a few memberships to the Legendary Marketer s Club every month?
In other words, do you want to still be working your shitty job 5 years from now?
Or do you want to truly have that passive income you’ve been dreaming about?
The freedom to take weeks off at a time, spend endless hours with your family without thinking twice about money, and the inner peace that comes with knowing your expenses are covered each month even if you do absolutely nothing?
If your answer is “Hell Yeah!”, I want to introduce you to the system that allowed me to create the exact life I just described.
A life where I can just drop everything and go camping with my wife, kids, and dogs for a whole month with zero hesitation.
All while continuing to grow my income if and when I CHOOSE to work.
This system is called Digital Real Estate, and I want to show you exactly how to do it too.
