Is Legendary Marketer a Scam? Review Reveals 3 Reasons I Left it.

I hesitantly joined Legendary Marketer, and this review will explain the 3 reasons I decided to leave, none of which ironically had to do with any scam.

Let me be clear: Legendary Marketer in my opinion is NOT a scam but the 3 reasons I left will make it pretty clear why I made that decision. 

Quick Report:legendary marketer review

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 to very expensive memberships.
  • And what I know about David Sharpe ultimately led me to leave this place.

I’ll explain every single one of these details as well as the pros and cons within this review.

Recommended? No.

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 shortly…).

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. And the goal was to see if the expected high ticket costs following it would be justified (I didn’t think they were).

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:

1) 15 core lessons on making money online.

2) 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.

3) 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 (there are some):

 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. For example, here’s one of my mine on this subject that you’ll get a lot of great info from.

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 trainings and as a result miss out on the essential steps that explain the whole process, and this makes them feel lost and impedes success.

Allow me to show you a quick look into Legendary Marketer’s members area…

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 (the history).

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, as 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 other places offer for less).

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 and up, 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.

I simply do not believe in or trust these kinds of programs and really believe their high ticket prices are truly inflated and I would say the same thing for legit high ticket programs as well. 

Places like this would teach you a lot of what Legendary Marketer would, for so much less and I’m not kidding. My results with programs like that (and these other success stories) really prove that.

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 and there’s even programs like this that do the exact same thing (And I also left that program for those reasons). 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.

Yellow Flag

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.

  1. I figured that it is similar to MOBE and that kind of system is illegitimate and screws the people on the bottom who don’t have thousands to spend. They are unfair and it is like holding a gun to your head and saying, “if you want to improve, buy more training!”.

    The FTC will shut them down for the same reason as MOBE. It is inevitable because most people will fail with it and complain. When this happens, the FTC really does not care who is right.

    I personally don’t believe in marketing to other internet marketers any paid system in which they can make money trying to get other people into the training…it is shady at best. Thanks for your review.

    • Jeff I mostly agree with you, particularly on MOBE. I do believe in marketing other people’s products but only when those products offer more training to market other things than their own system. Wealthy Affiliate offers that and it’s at an awesome, FREE and low price if you upgrade, it’s something I would recommend.

  2. Wow, thank you for this. I’ve signed up with LM about two weeks ago. I’ve been taking my time going through the steps. I usually do my research before paying for anything online which is how I ended up here. I have seen a few reviews that say LM is great but most of reviews give it a low rating. One review stated that the only thing you’ll be marketing is the very membership you just paid for. In other words you’ll just be getting persons to sign up with LM and there’s nothing beyond that. Can you comment on that?

    • Khade, apologies for responding so late! Here is what I think:

      It’s been awhile since I was part of Legendary Marketer, so I don’t remember the exact training, but I know high ticket systems, generally speaking do not “only” teach you to promote them. However, there is a problem and that is the price you pay to join, which is very, very high as I explained.

      The problem is that you will naturally want to make that money back and the most “convenient” way you’ll be shown how to do that is by promoting the same program. So while it’s not a “rule” that they only teach you to promote them, in many cases, it turns out that way in action from my experiences.

      If you’re not the sort who likes to promote the same company you join, then I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate to help you develop a business in a field where you can promote anything and make good money.

  3. Hello…

    I too had joined Legendary Marketer for $30. After step five I was seeing that now comes the gut punch ($$$).

    So I was intrigued to do a bunch of research on them, thus leading me here to your post about Dave Sharpe..or Duplicate Dave. I found your summary helpful in making my decision to not go forward with the company. People looking for a better way of life and a better way to make income, in my opinion aren’t sitting around with a lot of extra cash to roll the dice on such a thing.

    So in short I will to check out Wealthy Affiliate for myself. I’m college educated and hold two degrees. Although I’m not poor, I’m not rich either. I realize there is a better way. I really appreciate your input on your post.

    Thanks a Bunch Vitaliy.
