Welcome to my Grand Champion review. Today we’re going to be looking at the latest release from Philip Johansen and Dan Khan. These guys have featured on this blog a couple of times with a 50/50 ratio of good and bad.
I’m optimistic they can make that ratio favour the good with this one and this in depth review will find out. We don’t just repeat what the sales page says like a lot of the other reviews that are just looking for a commission from a sale.
As I am not affiliated with this I can give you a totally unbiased look at all the important parts of this product and if that turns out to be not so good then I’ll be happy to tell you.
On the other hand if this is a product that is worthy of your money then I’ll be more than happy to recommend this to you.
I’ll give you the reasons at the end of this review whatever side of the fence I come down on.
NAME: Grand Champion
OWNERS: Philip Johansen & Dan Khan
Grand Champion Review – What’s It About?
Before we take a look at the claims made by the vendor on the sales page we need to know what the product is really all about so we have something to compare it to.
I’m lucky enough to have been given review access so I can see all this has to offer and tell you.
After eventually getting to a video that has to do with this product Dan Khan explains this is about teaching you to be able to sell anything you want in any niche.
It revolves around giving value to people before selling to them. This reminds me of their previous product High Ticket Hero where he said the exact same thing.
Hopefully it’s not just a rehash of that product, only time will tell I suppose.
As he explains more this is beginning to sound like another product from Dan Khan, Affiliate Magic, because like this one you had to create 4 videos.
For some reason that product is no longer available, but this is really looking like a rehash of that product.
The method involves creating a landing page on Clickfunnels for people to opt in, that is connected to Aweber or an autoresponder of your choice.
After someone opts in they will see the first video which is open-ended so they need the rest of the series to understand what you are telling them.
To do that they have to open up the other 3 emails on the following days to get access to the videos. On each video you will have a call to action sending them to your affiliate offer.
Of course you need to get traffic to your opt in page in the first place and that is done by way of paid traffic and free traffic.
With the paid traffic you have to use Solo Ads which if you buy 300 clicks like he recommends that is going to cost you $264. The free traffic method requires you to use YouTube and he recommends you spend $25 to get artificial likes and comments which is of course against YouTubes TOS.
The other free traffic option is by using Facebook, but you have to buy another product to learn how to do that.
That is basically what you get with Grand Champion.[su_divider top=”no”]
Grand Champion Sales Page
Now we know what this is about let’s take a quick look at the sales page to what sort of claims are being made on there.
I don’t know why they put a claim about this never being seen before because as I’ve already said this has been seen on previous products.
Just going through the sales video and I have to say he’s a very animated guy and quite likable if I’m honest. Some of the things he’s though don’t make sense.
Such as getting results within 24hrs. That just isn’t possible, we know what this is about and setting everything up especially if you are a newbie is going to take a lot longer than 24hr so claiming to see results in that time is BS.
He guarantees that you have never seen anything like this before, well if there is any money attached to that guarantee I’ll be claiming it.
He even claims that Dan has secretly been working on this for the past nine months which is a strange thing to say seeing as this is pretty much a carbon copy of a product that Dan released just over 4 months ago then of course you have the product that is very similar to this one released just a couple of months ago.
Perhaps he forgot. the more probable reason is that he’s trying to pull the wool over your eyes, not sure why he’d want to do that just so he can say this has never been seen before.
He claims you can get direct access to either himself or Dan Khan via Facebook and Instagram. I can’t verify that at the moment, but hopefully they’ll honour that claim.
As I said he’s very animated and it’s very easy to get caught up in the hype.
There are testimonials on the sales page and seeing testimonials can be a good way to validate a product, but the people who are giving them are all product vendors themselves and the testimonials cannot be taken seriously.
Other claims being made include the pearl that this has almost no competition. Why would they say that?
You’re going to be using Solo Ads to get people to your opt in page, there are hundreds of people doing that.
You’re going to use YouTube videos to get people to your Opt in page, there are hundreds of people doing that.
There they go again claiming this is a brand new method, it’s not, but now they reckon this method will earn $585 per day.
Don’t forget these guys are experienced and have all the resources needed to earn that sort of money, but that is totally unrealistic to expect that starting from scratch.
The other thing I want you to ignore is the little pop up in the corner of the sales page that tells you that someone from wherever just bought a copy of Grand Champion.
How do I know? Because that is popping up when this isn’t even being sold yet![su_divider top=”no”]
Who Is Grand Champion For?
Even though the sales page paints an unrealistic picture this would suit newbies as long as they have the money to gamble on Solo Ads.
Don’t think just because you pay for traffic means that traffic will buy anything off you.
The same goes for YouTube videos to get traffic, if you are the sort of person that doesn’t mind being on camera, getting views is a lot different to getting sales.
Just don’t expect to get the results in 24hrs.[su_divider top=”no”]

Inside The Members Area
What we’ll do now is take a look inside the members area to see what that looks like so you know what to expect should you want to buy this.
Being built on the Clickfunnels platform this is very easy to navigate around with the menu on left containing all the training and all the corresponding videos shown on the right.
One thing that is strange for such a big platform is the need to keep scrolling up to see the videos when you work your way down the training.

As you can see there is quite a lot inside which makes a mockery of the results in 24hrs claim, it’s going to take quite a while to properly digest all that lot and implement it all.[su_divider top=”no”]
It would be remiss of me not to issue a warning about the upsells, not so much about the upsells themselves, but the fact that some vendors leave off the money back guarantee.
People naturally assume that because the front end has a money back guarantee that the upsells are covered by it as well. They only find out they are not when they try and get a refund.
The same thing happened to one of my readers, Matthew, who lost a lot of money when it happened to him, you can read his comment here.
My advice is to skip them when you see them because they are available inside the members area anyway so you won’t miss out.
- OTO #1 – Champions arsenal – $37 with a downsell to $27
- OTO #2 – Champions secret – $67
- OTO #3 – Ultimate champion – $47 with a downsell to $37
- OTO #4 – Meet the champion – $197 with a downsell to $97
- OTO #5 – Champions arena – $147 with a downsell to $97
I ask this question all the time when I see stuff like that. Imagine you’ve just paid $197 or $147 and then found out you could have got them for so much cheaper.
You’d be straight on the email asking for the difference back, I know I would.
Seeing as these are available inside the members area I would advise just concentrate on the front end and see how you get ion with that and if you find it works and want to buy these then you can, but for now stick with just the front end and concentrate on that.[su_divider top=”no”]
One thing that always annoys me is the fact these vendors claim their new product will solve your problems and start to earn you money online.
If that were actually true they wouldn’t feel the need to keep releasing products would they. And then trying to say this is a brand new method when something very similar has been released before is beyond me, just be honest with people.
As far as the product itself is concerned you’re never going to see results in 24hrs so you can forget about that, but I do think that what is outlined inside is a feasible way to make money online if you have the determination.
This isn’t going to be easy, but then again nothing is regardless of what the ‘gurus’ tell you.
If you don’t want to be on camera then you are going to need money in order to buy Solo ads, but that is no guarantee of results.
So if you haven’t got much money you might find this isn’t for you, but if you have some spare cash you don’t mind potentially wasting then this could be a good option for you.
But even if you tackle the traffic side you will still have to be on camera when it comes to the email series. So, again if being on camera scares you to death then you might want to look elsewhere.
For the price point of this and the info you get inside I’m going to approve this.
What Other Options Are There?
I really hope this Grand Champion review has helped you make up your mind because at the end of the day it is your choice, all I can do is give you the fact about a product.
If this is something you could see yourself doing then great I wish you all the luck with it, but if it’s not quite what you’re looking for then I’d like to offer you a great alternative.
It’s still affiliate marketing, but it focuses a bit more on a blog at the heart of it. Wealthy Affiliate has been teaching people how to build a successful website for the last 15 years and they can teach you too.
