Welcome to my Headway Review. Today we’re going to be looking at the latest in a long line of product releases from Trevor Carr.
For those of you who don’t know this isn’t Trevors’ first product. That was something that baffled me when I first got into this business, I was naive enough to think that people only ever released 1 product.
Mainly because I didn’t understand how they could keep releasing product after product basically saying the same thing about each of them and partly because I believed that they would put together a product good enough that there wasn’t a need to keep releasing other stuff.
How wrong was I. Fast forward a good number of years and now I know better. To give you some idea of what I mean, Trevor released a product in June this year claiming it “could be the last product you need to buy“.
And it’s not just Trevor Carr who does that, most vendors do, they claim their product is the one, you won’t need any others, blah, blah, blah.
But as you can see, just like Arnie, he’s back, with another product claiming this one “forces people to make money”
And it’s this product that is the focus of todays’ review. we’ll be going over what’s inside the members area and the all important upsells, but we’ll also be taking a look at the claims on the sales page to see if they hold water.
And by the end you’ll know exactly what this is and if it’s a product that I’d feel happy approving or not as the case may be.
So without further ado, let’s get this show on the road.
OWNERS: Trevor Carr & Jonas Lundgren
What Is Headway About?
As I’ve already mentioned this apparently forces people to make money, just how they’re going to force you I don’t know at this point perhaps it’s some form of mind control, who knows, but before we delve to far into the sales page let me just tell you what Headway is actually about.
What you get with this is 3 modules containing a total of 17 videos as well as Google docs with various different resources including the 2 offers that you’re going to get approved for by inputting a special code.
This is so people will ‘buy’ those and then go on and actually buy the upsells which are also priced at $1 thus building your score as an affiliate which in turn increases your chances of being approved for future product launches.
I won’t go into too much detail as to what each video contains, that would take way too long, but I will cover them later when I show you inside the members area
The Sales page
I’m not going to dwell too long on the sales page because to be quite honest I’m pretty excited to see the ins and outs of this in detail.
One thing that’s going to be very interesting is fact that there’s a big red banner emblazoned across the top of the sales page that states this is going to go from $12.95 to a whopping $197 in just 1 day, 11 hours and 35 minutes.
Now I’m not sure I’m going to get round to finishing this review tonight so what I’ll do is leave the sales page window open counting down.
I’ll come back either later or tomorrow to see if they were telling the truth or if it’s just trick to make you think if you don’t buy it in the next day or so you’re going to be paying a lot more.
What do you think? Will the price jump up to $197? Or will it stay at $12.95?
I’ve had a look at the sales video and I’ve got to say it looks like he’s taking the piss out people who buy products just like this, which means you. I’m not sure if that was his intention, but that’s how it seems.
He does this by pretending to be someone who’s looking for a way to make money online, being inundated with offers that promise to make you money. Sound familiar?
People buy those products because they don’t think they’d be lied to on the sales page and to be fair that’s not an unrealistic expectation is it.
After all, he’s expecting you to buy this product based on what the sales page says, but for him to belittle people for having trust in what they are reading is just wrong and I think he’s really crossed a line with this one.
Take a look at the video for yourself and see what you think:
The rest of the sales page is pretty low key compared to most, obviously I can’t vouch for the figures they show, but as the disclaimer at the bottom of the page says those figures are before refunds and non-payments
Also make sure that you don’t think that those results are typical:
Inside The Members Area
Any of you that have read my reviews before will know this is the point where I give out a warning. It’s a warning about the upsells. Not so much what they are about, but how you can potentially lose a lot of money.
Actually I’m going to leave that for the next section so make sure you take a look, it’s got a surprise I bet you won’t be expecting.
For now DO NOT buy the upsells!
Once you get into the members area you’ll see an invitation to a free training webinar, everybody seems to be doing these nowadays and they are usually just a sales pitch for a high ticket item.
After a quick introduction from both instructors, you dive straight into the training:

- Video 3 – Product approval update 1 – 5.13
- Video 4 – Product approved – 11.40
And that’s Headway and Ive got to say I’m a bit disappointed with what they’ve put together. Half of Module 2 is about these strange case studies which really haven’t got any relevance to the task at hand.
If you’re looking to get a foothold with regards to your ‘score’ on Warrior Plus then you really won’t even want to know about what he’s doing with his dead list or bot list.
I know lists are important, but at this stage you probably won’t be in that position and besides the training on this was a bit half assed in my opinion, it didn’t really tell you a great deal.
I think the best bit of advice he gives you is at the beginning of Module 2, where he tells you if you are serious you should think about building a website and start putting your reviews on there.
The trouble is even though he says you can start ranking those reviews there is nowhere in this training showing you how to do that.
That may have been a better choice to include rather than the case studies?
OK, now for that warning. As we can see the sales page for Headway has a 30 day money back guarantee which is great. Knowing that you can get your money back if this doesn’t live up to your expectations is very reassuring.
The checkout also states you get a 30 day money back guarantee.
Now, you’d naturally think that the upsells also came with a guarantee as well wouldn’t you, I know I did. In fact the upsells even have that 100% satisfaction guarantee seal with the 30 day money back guarantee statement.
Now if you took that at face value, and let’s be honest why wouldn’t you, and went ahead and purchased those upsells, took a look at them and realised that they really weren’t for you and wanted your money back under that guarantee.
Unfortunately you’d be in for a shock. There is NO guarantee for the upsells and you’d have lost a lot of money.
It’s a shameful way of making money, take a look at Matthews comment here and see how much money he lost because of a stunt like this.
sorry, I haven’t shown you how I know this have I:
That is the same for all 4 upsells.
Hopefully you’ll read this before you get caught out. To be fair I don’t think you really need the upsells anyway, but this only reinforces that.
If you feel you want to take the risk of these upsells being any good then my advice is still don’t buy them until you’ve at least tried the main product, that way you can still get your $12.95 back if it’s not for you.
You don’t have to feel as if you might miss out if you don’t buy them straight away because the links to each of them are inside the Google Doc for Module 1.
- OTO #1 – DFY Solution – $37 with a downsell to $27
- OTO #2 – Advanced – $67 with a downsell to $37
- OTO #3 – Traffic – $97 – with a downsell to $57
- OTO #4 – License rights – $97 with a downsell to $67
Another thing, these are meant to be one time offers, but they’re not, but at least I’ve just saved you $110, to get those downsells just click ‘No Thanks’ at the bottom of each sales page.
I was excited to see what Trevor Carr had come up with this time round and I’d like to say he hasn’t disappointed, but I can’t.
I think what he has done in terms of giving you approval for one of his products that you can give away and hopefully build a score when people buy the upsells for $1 is great and something I have seen before, but for the life of me I can’t remember what product that was ( I review so many).
That is a stumbling block for so many people, not being able to get approved to promote a product because you have no track record. How do you get a record if no one will approve you?
So in that respect this does address the problem. And that is where it causes a problem for me. The rest of the training seems out of place, almost like it’s only there to bulk out the course.
Then we have the issue with the upsell guarantee, trying to convince you it has one only to have in small print on the order page that it doesn’t.
As for the headline of ‘Forcing people to make money’ I have no idea and quite frankly you can’t force people to make money.
Then we have the issue of the price, is it really going to increase to $197? All I can say is if it does go up then there is no way you should buy it, but for $12.95 it might be worth you buying it just to get access to your ‘vicious circle busters’.
It’s for that reason I’m going to approve this, but only by the skin of it’s teeth.
What Other Options Are There?
Getting approval for products is only one part of the puzzle, obviously it’s an important one, but there are so many other components to building a successful affiliate marketing business and as Trevor himself recommends, a website is probably the cornerstone of this business.
