Name: Legendary Marketer (Aka Duplicate Dave) by David Sharpe.
Price: 4 membership levels (that I know off):
- Legendary Marketers Club: $30 a month, which is what I tried.
- Masterclass: $2,500.
- Leader Masterclass: $5,000.
- A Six Week “Indivisible Influencer” package for $997 or 3 payments that add to a little over that.
Overall Rating: 3 out of 10 stars. I somewhat enjoyed the “club” level membership I was in, but ultimately, the limits on my activity within that membership, the pitch to try and upgrade and what I know about David Sharpe ultimately led me to leave this place. I’ll explain every single one of these pros and cons in detail…
What is Legendary Marketer (Duplicate Dave)?
This is another class of high ticket, make money online programs, made by an individual, David Sharpe who I honestly have a hard time trusting (I’ll let you know why…). Normally, I refrain from joining high ticket systems, but the club level membership, only being $30 and containing a 30 day refund was enough to get me in.
The following review reflects what I saw inside Legendary Marketer, albeit within the limits of the club level membership:
The “club” level membership I was a part of consisted of the following things:
15 core lessons on making money online.
A “Marketers Club” which contained 8 modules of training on things like list building, list tracking, YouTube ad tutorials, FB ad/FB fan page tutorials, and various other stuff. Truth be told, if there was any good value I got out of the $30 I paid, this was the place where I got it.
The rest of the members area was locked unless I’d upgrade or contact a coach, which frankly was one of the biggest reasons I got frustrated and left. But before I explain that and the 3 reasons for me leaving, let me give this program the benefits it deserves:
The good things about this program:
1) The members area is very organized, clean and easy to understand. Although every tutorial is in video format, it is organized in a way to make anyone follow along easily.
2) The marketers club has a lot of value inside it, but I do have to say that regarding the topics that area covers, I know free YouTube videos which will explain the same things.
3) I do like that each module of training they have is set up such that you can’t access the next lesson without going over the one before it. So for example, you can’t access lesson 2 without finishing 1, you can’t access lesson 3 without doing lesson 2, and so forth. This is a good policy because it keeps the person watching organized.
Too many times people skip ahead in these training and as a result miss out on the essential steps that explain the whole process, and this makes them feel lost. Here’s a quick look into it:
4) Despite not wanting to stay, I am happy to report my refund request for this program was done VERY quickly, without questions (you have 30 days to do it).
Ok, now the bad things (the 3 reasons I left):
1) David Sharpe.
So this isn’t my first review of a program made by this gentleman. A few years back, there was a popular MLM program sweeping the internet world known as “Empower Network” of which David was one of the founders of. It went down as a big scam in the end, but from what I know, David made a lot of money from it.
The reason it was considered a scam was because of it’s pyramid/MLM system set up. A lot of people didn’t do too well in that program, but the ones who were in the higher tier of members did.
In short, it was a pyramid scheme and as such was dissolved from what I remember. I was never on the Empower Network bandwagon but I kept my eyes open for duplicate programs after it which tried to mimic it’s set up.
Now Legendary Marketer isn’t an MLM, it is a 1 tier affiliate system, so that already makes it better than Empower Network, but the part about David, whose previous program I just explained to you not being good and now having to jump into another program made by him, makes me uncomfortable to do. I just have a hard time trusting him after Empower Network.
2) High ticket nonsense (paying big money for training).
Once there was a big trend in the online world where high ticket MLM programs were a big thing, and among them, Empower Network was at the top. When it went down, so did many others because people figured out how the pyramid scheme worked.
But it is my opinion that many big players who once had successful MLM programs that were taken down, figured out that they could still bank if they made new programs that cost as much, but weren’t MLM programs, and so many of them created the high ticket systems we see today.
In other words, it’s like a fad. Before it was expensive MLM programs, today it’s expensive high ticket systems. Not only do I dislike these, but I also advise everyone to not buy into them.
There is also another big argument to make against them and that is that the FTC is slowly stepping into this world and looking at these types of programs more and more carefully.
I’m not saying Legendary Marketer is a scam, but the high ticket program industry is becoming more and more exposed and in 2018, 2 big ones were taken down: MOBE and Digital Altitude and the governmental organizations doing this are looking at any other program that is similar and I believe Legendary Marketer is.
3) Specific things I disliked about the members area.
I want to dive more into the program itself and my negative experiences with it. So here goes:
A) While I like some of the training there, I absolutely disliked the fact the most important training, the 15 core steps I was most looking forward to was hidden from me and locked out, unless I’d speak to a coach. I was only able to access lesson 1.
Now I’ve been around this high ticket industry for years. Every time they say coach, it’s more of a sales person and I know that high ticket program’s aims are to get you spending more and being that there are more and more memberships to join, I can 100% certain the coach would try and get me in there. I simply didn’t want to talk to anyone, I just wanted to see the training and I couldn’t do that. I dislike this red tape and I’ve seen it used in programs to limit people to get them funneled into sales, I don’t like it at all.
B) The support isn’t very good. There’s no forum, no community, there is a live chat, but it wasn’t active when I asked them a question. This is not good stuff considering people who have questions, are out of luck if they message at the wrong time:
A good program is going to provide you instantaneous support and help you move forward ASAP. Which is why:
Final Rating: Legendary Marketer.
3 out of 10 stars. I guess you can consider David Sharpe a legendary marketer, but that doesn’t change the issues I outlined about his program. I have a strong reluctance against high ticket systems, David’s past reputation and the way the program functions for the lowest tier members. It seems like there’s a push to get people spending more and as you saw by the prices, it’s a lot to spend…
My final thoughts: Do I have a better suggestion than this program? Why yes I do:
The good news about the program I recommend (Wealthy Affiliate) is that knowing what it provides makes me appreciate it more and more when I see programs like Legendary Marketer and what they teach. My recommended program is better for 5 main reasons:
I really believe that this year or perhaps before the end of next year, there is going to be a big turn in how people look at high ticket programs and that what happened to high ticket MLM programs will now happen to programs like this.
Either way, I’m going to stay to away from these places. I know from my experience with the other, recommended program that you can make good money without being a part of an expensive system.
