Name: Internet Jetset by John Crestanis.
Price: $1 trial for 1 month. Then it’s $47/month. It has 2 major up-sells:
Upsell 1: $297 for a Super Affiliate System. If you don’t buy it right away, you can get it later, but it jumps up all the way to $997!
Upsell 2: Jetset Inner Circle, it’s $187, then down sold to $97.
Overall Rating: 5 out of 10 stars. For the $1 trial, you really do get a lot of good info which I liked. The core principals of building an online business are there, but it seems like the push is being made to get those big, costly up-sells and that is ultimately why this program didn’t rate higher. I don’t mind paying more, but this much more is just insane, sorry John…
What is Internet Jetset (IJ)? The summary:
This is a program that teaches you affiliate marketing from scratch which is basically a business where you create a website, put up links promoting products you don’t own and when people buy from those links, you get paid.
However in order to get to the last part, you need to have a website, have content on it, review products, register with affiliate programs and do a bunch of other things.
A lot of those essentials are what’s covered inside the training of the IJ program. Here’s an inside look:
-There are 11 high quality lessons you get to explore for just $1. These lessons run you through the steps to setting up an affiliate marketing business.
-John has set up his site so you can communicate with him and ask him questions through each lesson. In other words, good support.
-Low cost trial makes it appealing. Like I said, for a measly $1, you do get a lot of stuff.
-Additional bonus lessons and training is provided at no extra cost, things like YouTube marketing training and Facebook ads training.
-Pretty organized program. Beginners will be fine with this.
-As someone who does affiliate marketing full time, I was pretty impressed with the way John set up his lessons and do believe for the most part, it’s good training, but….
-The training, while good, is more of a teaser in my opinion. I’d say it’s 30% of what you need to get things going, which is still good, but not good/complete enough.
-There are numerous “tools” which are basically sales pages to third party programs. Having too much stuff to buy and not enough of a complete, central program all in one area is going to confuse beginners (and their wallets). Here’s an example:
-The upsells. John makes it clear they are optional, but their prices…my goodness. Why does it have to be so expensive? $297 turned into $997 if you don’t act right away? And the $187 one that goes down to $97? They may even be great, but I can tell you this much: My #1 recommendation will probably give you as good if not better training for WAY less.
-No real reason to stay past the trial. The $47/month doesn’t appear to give you anything else other than what you already get with the $1 trial.
-Potential upsell #3? There’s a number to call once you join for a 30 minute consultation. I often stay away from these as they are generally more like sales calls. I don’t know if this is the case here, but I am weary of trying it, so my review will not reflect this…
Can you make money with IJ’s basic training?
Potentially yes. As I said, the basic training (the one you get for a $1 trial, then $47/month) has some decent/good principals, steps and tools to help you get started with running an online business.
One of the bonuses they give you is a tutorial on launch jacking which is a form of marketing where you write articles on upcoming products in your niche to get fast ranking on Google and when it gets released and amasses popularity, you get that search traffic and make the sales, so yes, in a nutshell, you can make money with IJ.
However, they really don’t go further beyond the basics which is what I find on one hand makes sense for a $1 trial, but if you don’t get anymore lessons for $47, why stay?
Final Rating: Internet Jetset.
5 out of 10 stars. It’s definitely safe to try the $1 trial and honestly (not a scam!), I’d even recommend it, but above it I would recommend my alternative instead (which I’ll get to in a moment). But in any case, if you’re on the bandwagon of joining IJ, then you will benefit from the $1 trial at the very least. Staying is up to you.
My final thoughts: A better alternative program.
My #1 recommendation is a very similar program to IJ, but is honestly more complete. It’s called Wealthy Affiliate.
Wealthy Affiliate vs Internet Jetset. A quick comparison:
-Wealthy Affiliate (WA) is free to join. Internet Jetset has a $1 trial. Not a big difference.
-WA has 20 core lessons. IJ has only 11.
-WA has 2 free websites to get. In IJ, you have to sign up for a trial of about $2-$3 but then it may go up.
-WA has an additional 10,000 lessons to access for free. IJ has only a few.
-Both programs offer great information for their core lessons, but WA just has more.
-Both programs are very beginner friendly.
-WA has a premium membership of $49/month, IJ is $47.
-The premium membership of WA gives you access to over 100,000 lessons and over 100 CORE lessons. With IJ, you don’t get anything close to this, except a 12 week course which is either $297 or $997…
-The premium membership also gets you 200+ webinars. With IJ this comes once a month. I will say this, the webinars in WA are insanely valuable.
-WA also has a free live chat and massive support. While IJ has good support, it’s nothing compared to WA.
-WA is far more complete. Whether it’s for free or with the premium membership, you get all the tools you need and support. With IJ, you have to optionally purchase more tools to get a more complete package and that’ll cost more.
My final rating of Wealthy Affiliate: 10 out of 10 stars.
My final rating of IJ: 5 out of 10 stars.
Both programs are good, but I would argue (and with good merit) that WA has more tools and gives you more (for a less price) that will help you build a real, complete affiliate marketing business. And I can attest to that because I’ve done it through them:
I’ve been in affiliate marketing for MANY years (and I know how it works) so when I see the training inside programs like IJ, I can quickly assess whether or not it’s legit and for a good portion of it, it really is, but it’s still a fraction of what you get from WA which one of the main reasons I recommend it above IJ, and also the fact that there’s those crazy, expensive up-sells which I could never recommend…
