Welcome to my Gram Grands review. Today we’re going to be looking at a product by Jonny Rose and Sasha Ilic. I first reviewed a Sasha Ilic product way back in 2017 and I’ve reviewed a few since then, but they have never really been any good.
Jonny Rose on the other hand is someone completely new to me and is the creator of this product so I’m hoping that he has put something together that is actually worthwhile and not another product that is a load of rubbish like the rest that I usually see.
Instagram isn’t something that I’m active on so this’ll be an interesting review and if it is any good then I’ll think about implementing myself.
Now this has been out for a few days and having looked through the other reviews this should be great, but then again those other reviews say that about every single product they review.
They only do that so you buy through their link and they get a commission, but luckily you’ve landed here and seeing as I don’t have an affiliate link you can be sure of a totally unbiased review.
NAME: Gram Grands
OWNERS: Sasha Ilic & Jonny Rose
Gram Grands Review – What’s It About?
Before we take a look at what sort of claims are being made on the sales page let’s see what this is all about. The overview in the members area will give us a good idea of what this and what the whole process involves.
One thing I will say is that they don’t try and hide the fact that you’ll be Instagram as a way to earn money which is quite rare with products like this, normally vendors will hide what it is you’ll be doing until you’ve actually bought the product.
The training inside here is around 1 hour long which again is pretty rare, you’re lucky if you get 5 minutes of training with other products.
The main training has 21 videos for you to go through from setting up your Instagram account to creating content, be that highlights, videos or story posts.
Then after that section you have the second part which is 6 case studies from successful IG marketers who are actively making money each month.
That’s it really, it all seems as if you’re left hanging as if there should be something more, don’t get me wrong the training is sufficient for what it does it just doesn’t do enough.
The Sales Page
Now we know what’s inside Gram Grands let’s take a quick look at the sales page to see if they are making any outrageous claims.
If we take a closer look at that headline we’ll see that they reckon that we are only 3 steps away from being able to generate $182 every day on Instagram and even the biggest newbie can do it.
Now while I agree that this will show you how to set up your Instagram account if you are new it doesn’t do a lot else and it certainly doesn’t show you how to earn $182 every day.
The case study that they show Nagu himself only has 13 followers which isn’t going to bring in a great deal of money, He doesn’t actually say how much he’s earning from that, perhaps he’s too embarrassed.
They go on to say that you’ll be profitable within 1 hour! How on earth they can say that is beyond me. D they think that just because you make an Instagram account you’ll magically make money?
The 3 steps they mentioned is pretty farcical to be fair, look at what the steps are:
- Step #1 – Buy Gram Grands
- Step #2 – Set up the system in under an hour
- Step #3 – Start collecting payments
Almost every product I’ve reviewed over the last couple of weeks has had these 3 steps to making money and needless to say it’s total BS.
The rest of the sales page pretty much just repeats itself.
Who Is This For?
That’s a good question because although his would suit someone who is new to Instagram, why would you pay for it when there are plenty of YouTube videos for that and on how to make money on IG which are more detailed that this.
The Good Bits
- Easy to follow for someone new to Instagram
- 6 case studies
- 30 day money back guarantee
The Bad Bits
- Possible rehash of an old product / PLR product
- Pretty basic training
- No real endgame
Inside The Members Area
Before we get into the members area I just want to give you a warning about the upsells. These are the things you’ll see right after you buy this product, but before you get access to the product you just bought.
Some vendors will offer a 30 day money back guarantee on the front end sales page, but then leave it off the upsells completely which has led some people to assume the upsells had a money back guarantee and have bought them.
When they tried to get a refund because they were rubbish they found out they had lost their money because of not having a guarantee.
Matthew fell foul of that and lost $600, take a look at his comment here to see how that happened and hopefully that won’t happen to you.
My advice to you is to skip past the upsells, don’t worry you won’t miss out because they are accessible inside the members area
When you do get past the upsells you’ll finally get access to your purchase which looks like this:
This is built on the ClickFunnels platform which means it’s really easy to navigate around. The only downside to it is when you work your way through the training you need to scroll down and when you click each training segment you need to scroll back up again.
Not a massive inconvenience, but you’d think they’d be linked and scroll back up automatically. Even thought there are 21 videos they are extremely short, some being just over a minute long.
Let’s take a look at the upsells to see what they are and how much they are going to cost you.
- OTO #1 – Pro version – $27
- OTO #2 – Done for you package – $47
- OTO #3 – Instant authority profile booster – $147
- OTO #4 – Coaching – £77
- OTO #5 – Resell rights – 97
For all the talk on the sales page about how easy this is going to be and how quickly you’re going to be able to set this up and start earning money, upsell #3 says it all really.
In the sales videos for that upsells Jonny Rose says that “no one wants to buy from or sign up to someone that doesn’t have many followers or likes and no one trusts that“.
“That’s why we have to save you all the time and effort” What happened to being profitable inside an hour????
I had really high hopes for this at the beginning, but the further I investigated the more I felt something was wrong. The training is done by someone who doesn’t reveal their name and the date on those videos is from 6/23/2019, a whole year ago.
I don’t know if this is a PLR product or just an old product that has been given a new name, but something isn’t quite right with it and I can’t quite put my finger on it.
I haven’t come across Jonny Rose before, but I was expecting this to see a lot more of him than I did. All he does is introduce a few things.
The whole thing is just missing something mainly the whole monetization process, it does a good enough job of showing you how to set up an IG account, but totally lacks in the most important part.
I know you can find this sort of information on Youtube for free. Sorry guys I won’t be approving this one.
Relying on social media for an income is extremely risky, you never know when they can shut you down for something that you may not even realise you did.
All that hard work gone to waste. That’s why I like being in control by owning my own website. Even if you do market on IG having your own website will make you more professional to potential customers.
Don’t know the first thing about building your own website?
Don’t worry I’ve got you covered, you’ll even get a free website as well so you don’t have to worry about hosting or any of that.
Not only that, but you’ll also get 10 free lessons to help you along as well as access to a community of 2 million members all willing to help you out.
Just click the banner below, you don’t need a credit card, just a name and email address and you’re good to go.
I’ll meet you on the inside and be there to help you every step of the way. You’ll even get to meet the owners who will stop by to welcome you.
Whatever you decide I wish you the best in your online endeavors and remember I’m here to help you anyway I can 🙂
