Welcome to my Leverage review. Today we’re going to be looking at Bill Hugalls latest release. It seems like only yesterday he released his last product.
In fact, it was November 10th, so this has been released 4 weeks after a product that claimed that was the best method for making money online.
So what gives?
Was that one not really the best way to make money online? Do they say that sort of thing about every product they release?
I’ll let you into a little secret, they say those sorts of things for every product they release!
I don’t know why they do that, all it does is make them look extremely naive, thinking people are stupid and won’t actually realise.
Let me give you some examples; Snowball Traffic claimed $9 in 30 days, 2019 Blast Off claimed $130 a day in 24 hrs, Atomic Profits claimed 8k a month, Profit Vortex claimed $2k to $3k per DAY or Unbreakable claiming $130 per day.
I think you get the idea and that is only the tip of the iceberg.
The funny thing is all the reviews you see when you’re doing your research tell you how good these products are when all they’re bothered about is you buying them through their affiliate link!
Out of that small selection above I only approved one of them, the rest really weren’t worth your time or your money.
And that’s one thing you can be certain of after reading this review, you’ll know if this product is any good and if it’s a worthwhile investment.
I don’t sugar coat my reviews, I don’t just repeat the sales page like so many do, I tell it like it is, good or bad.
Let’s see what this product has in store for us and if it lives up to the claims.
OWNERS: Bill Hugall & Mark Barrett
What Is Leverage About?
Before we go over the sales page of this product I’m going to tell you exactly what this is about and then hopefully the sales page will say the same thing.
This requires you to build a squeeze page with a free offer such as a report and a funnel and by leveraging the 5 leverage points you will send traffic to that squeeze page and into the funnel.
Once in the funnel you’ll send affiliate offers via follow ups and broadcasts. I’ll cover what the 5 leverage points are in a later section, but for now that is what Leverage is about.
The Sales Page
Now we know what this is actually about let’s take a quick look at what the sales page says it is. I do this for a reason. So many times I see sales pages filled with total rubbish, stuff on there just to get you to part with your money.
Let’s start with the claim that this is a new affiliate method. I really don’t know why they are saying that, how can building a squeeze page with a free offer and sending traffic to it be a new affiliate method??
Moving on to the 5 Leverage points:
- Using social media influencers
- Sponsored posts on Facebook groups
- Solo Ads
- Paying Youtube channels to put link in their description
- Contacting product vendors and paying for your bonus to be on their download page
Moving on to the case study. My idea of a case study is totally different to these guys’ idea, all this ‘case study’ shows is some numbers.
I was expecting at least a time-lapse video showing exactly where these figures came from which wouldn’t be beyond the realm of possibility seeing as these figures were meant to come in over the course of 3 days.
Another point is the FREE traffic. I couldn’t find any FREE traffic inside the training whatsoever. Those 5 traffic sources all require you paying money, in some cases a lot of money. So where’s the FREE traffic?
He even talks about it in the sales video, perhaps they forgot they said it.
I also couldn’t find anything inside about how they make money in 24hrs or less using this system, but the important part here is the how this is worded, “how THEY make money“.
Just because they make money doesn’t mean you’ll make money, you’ve got to remember they didn’t show you in the case study so they could have easily been utilizing their vast resources.
You’ve got to remember these are experienced marketers who have been around a while, they’re not newbies.
There seems to be an increasing tendency amongst vendors to call out all the other products as rubbish and expect you to believe their one is different.
The thing is that is so true, unfortunately it’s the same with this one as well.
This sales page has more holes than Mark Barretts string vest. I don’t actually know if he wears one btw 🙂 I could actually do a whole post just about the sales page, but I think I’ve made my point.
What Did I Like?
- 30 day money back guarantee
- Clear videos with good audio
- Some good traffic sources just not FREE
What Didn’t I Like?
- No FREE traffic like they claimed
- Unexplained “new method”
- Conclusion video is just a sales pitch for the upsells
- Too many upsells
- Technical knowledge to build your squeeze pages
- Unrealistic claims on the sales page for newbies
Inside the Members Area
Whenever you buy a product like this chances are you’re going to see upsells before you actually get to the product you bought.
Usually you’ll see 2 or 3, but this one has an incredible 5 of them and I don’t mean the quality of them are incredible just the amount there they have is.
With that being said my warning about buying upsells is even more important for you to listen to especially as one of these upsells costs a crazy $697!!!
What you need to know is what could happen and what one of my readers found out to his disappointment and financial loss. Take a look at Matthews comment here to find out exactly what happened.
The other thing is you don’t need to feel pressured into buying these upsells there and then because they are available to buy inside the members area anyway.
Basically what I’m saying is DON’T BUY THEM until you’ve had the chance to try out the main product, after all this method is meant to bank you $465 in 48 hrs.
I want to bring up a couple of points about the upsells, but I’ll do that in the next section so let’s get back to the members area.
The interface is extremely easy to use and the menu on the left will take you to the relevant video or you can just scroll down until you reach the video you want.
- Main Overview – 1.32
- Setting it up Part 1 – 3.24
- Setting it up Part 2 – 4.47
- Picking Offers – 5.22
- Leverage Follow up – 8.51
- Leverage Point 1 – 8.33
- Leverage Point 2 – 4.17
- Leverage Point 3 – 4.14
- Leverage Point 4 – 4.46
- Leverage Point 5 – 4.31
- Broadcasting – 5.46
- Conclusion – 2.43
- Case Study – 1.55
As you can see it’s not the most comprehensive training with the longest video being just 8.51 long, but that is what you get with Leverage.
So we know there are 5 upsells and that one of them is a ridiculous $697. I’ll cover what they are and what they cost, but I’ll also let you know if it has a downsell so you can get them cheaper.
- OTO #1 – Done for you package – $67 with a downsell to $47
- OTO #2 – 10X Training & DFY Follow Up Series – $77 with a downsell to $47
- OTO #3 – Black Label Affiliates Private & Exclusive Mastermind – $197 with a downsell to $127
- OTO #4 – License Rights – $197 with a downsell to $127
- OTO #5 – Custom DFY Funnel Build & Coaching – $697 with a downsell to $597
That little lot adds up to an eye watering $1,235.00, But now you know you can get them for $945.00 saving you $290.
How do you get the discounts? Simple, just scroll all the way to the bottom of each sales page, past the buy button and click “No Thanks” 🙂
One point I’d like to bring to your attention is how EASY they try and get you to believe this is on the sales page;
If it was really that easy then why on earth does Bill Hugall tell you on the first upsell that buying said upsell will take out “ALL THE HARD WORK FOR YOU and ALL THE EFFORT”
Why don’t they mention all the hard work and effort on the sales page??
Basically it’s not really as easy as you’re making out on the sales page, is it Bill.
My thoughts on this is I wonder what sort of rubbish they’re going to come up with next month? Not so much the product itself because if I’m fair this isn’t the worst product out there.
The problem I have is with the way they’ve trying to sell this to you. Remember the FREE traffic that didn’t materialise inside the actual product?
Every single one of those traffic sources requires you to pay for it, unless you’re a super affiliate, which if you’re looking at this product I’m guessing you’re not so you’re going to have to pay for it.
The ‘no technical knowledge’ part mentioned in the sales video when you actually have to set up a squeeze page and a download page.
The new method that didn’t turn up either. Building an email list with a free giveaway report, yeah that’s really new. Getting traffic from Solo Ads, Shoutouts, Sponsored Facebook post, paying for your link on someones Youtube channel and not forgetting the old paying a vendor to put your bonus on their download page.
Yep, they’re really brand new, NOT!
I’m in a bit of a dilemma with this one if I’m honest. The product itself isn’t bad if a tad basic, but how can approve this when they do all that other stuff, how can you trust someone like that?
That basically sealed my opinion on this one, you shouldn’t buy from people who are willing to do this sort of stuff, sorry.
What Other Options Are There?
If it was FREE traffic and of course trust you were looking for then obviously Leverage was a bit of a disappointment for you. Let me help you out.
The way I was taught, I can get free traffic to any website I want, but the best thing is you can learn how to do that as well and you’ll have absolute trust in the owners.
That’s the reason why Wealthy Affiliate is the number 1 affiliate training platform on the internet and it’s the same reason why I’m still there over 4 year after I joined as a newbie.
Having been there for the amount of time I have I know how they work so I have a great review here that you can read over or if you like you can click the banner below for instant access.
Don’t worry it’s a starter membership that is TOTALLY FREE. You really do have nothing to lose.
You’ll even get 2 FREE websites and 10 FREE lessons on how to set them up ready to make money online. Simply click the banner below, no credit card needed, 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 meet the owners who will stop by to welcome you 🙂
