what is the lost code about

It’s all about selling high ticket items to make the sort of money you wouldn’t if you stuck to low price items. The strategy consists of 4 “secret” methods

  1. Lost Code Money Pages
  2. Auditon Money Method
  3. Simple Little Promos (product reviews)
  4. Your Very Own Webinars

So that’s the first part, you then have the traffic side.

  1. Free Traffic From YouTube
  2. Cheap Traffic From Bing
  3. 3 Underground Traffic Sources

That’s the traffic side of things and to finish off you have a video about list building.

And that’s The Lost Code ….. what do you think? Well I think you’re going to really know what it is you are doing because some of the videos are pretty intense in terms of designing all your bonus pages and application forms, using different software etc. etc.[su_divider top=”no”]

a bit more detail

Let’s start off with the first “secret” method – Lost Code Money Pages. In this video Brendan uses one of his previous products, The Fuego Multiplier, which i liked by the way, to show how you sell the pricier upsells.

One of the main things to add is scarcity, that is to create the illusion that there is only a certain number available so they have to act fast.

About 4 minutes in he covers the point of what if you have nothing to promote? Well here’s where the pitch for his own upsell on this product comes into play. If you bought the first upsell then you will have the done for you pages and offers so you can “make money with this immediately”

OK let’s move on to the next one – Audition Money Method. In this one it’s all about using a psychological trigger strategy.

It’s basically getting people to “audition” to you for a limited free offer that you have. You need to put together an email to your list and send them to an application form to fill out.

Next on the list is Simple little promos. Jono takes over the reigns on this one and it’s a fairly long video running at 50 minutes and goes into what he uses and how he puts together his reviews for products. This is fairly in depth and if you’re not familiar or comfortable making bonus pages and creating graphics then you will struggle on this one.

The final one is Your Very Own Webinars. Now don’t think this is a training video on how to host your own webinars (I know what the title says) it’s about you getting the benefit of webinars without making them yourself.

You will promote their webinar and make around $1000 per sale.

In the short Free Traffic From YouTube video Jono tells you his strategy for ranking his videos so you can rank your review videos. It’s nothing special, just the use of backlinks and social signals from Fiverr.

He does use software to automate the process like Syndlab 2.0

The Cheap Quality Traffic From Bing video is a bit of a longer setup and just to be clear he does state early in the video that he “only played around with Bing and didn’t’t find it that cost effective” He also tells you he’s no expert in Bing and actually says that he gets better results using another method which he doesn’t want to go into at the moment because he will be releasing a course on it.

So i’m not sure if it’s case of the blind leading the blind with this one.

The 3 Underground Traffic Sources video covers the use of social media influencers, from Instagram and Twitter.

The third one makes use of re targeting using google Ads tag.[su_divider top=”no”]

building your list

The List Building Hack video shows you how to get a $100 Google Adwords Voucher for $11.99, now he has shown this in another of his products and i had an absolute nightmare trying to get it, it was always out of stock, now in this video the rest of the world option is still showing out of stock, but you can get the one that is available, but only if you are inside of the U.S.

He does actually give some great tips for building a quality, qualified buyers list, it’s a bit technical, but worth it in my opinion.[su_divider top=”no”]

the oto’s

Every product that get’s released these days come with upsells, but this one comes with an eye watering 6 of them!!

oto funnelI know this product is all about selling high ticket items, but $1997, come on guys.

Upgrade 2 ($197) – Limitless Traffic for a year

Upgrade 6 ($2,000) – is Brendan’s personal 1-on-1 coaching

As you can see apart from number 2, they all come with a downsell.[su_divider top=”no”]

final thoughts

Well it tries to come across as something that is as they say The Lost Code and there are a few bits of treasure in there, but to be fair i was expecting a hell of a lot more, the “Audition” Money Method is probably the only thing that i would consider something that not everyone knows about, oh and Jono’s little list building nugget.

Everything else is pretty run-of-the-mill stuff. That being said if you are new to this industry you will seriously struggle with this, you need to be someone who has been in the business for a while and knows what they are doing to get anything out of this and even then i don’t’ think you’ll benefit as much as you probably think you will.

Am i going to approve this? It does come with a some good advise for the right person and it’s for that reason that yes i will approve this, but and it’s a fairly big but, if you are new stay well away from this because you will only find it sitting on your hard drive gathering virtual dust!

approved just

what next

Just because something has a high ticket price doesn’t mean it’s any better than it’s lower price counterpart. If you are just starting out i would advise you to start with the lower price items to get some sales under your belt, build up your confidence because there is nothing worse than doing all the hard work and not seeing any results.

It’s very easy to become despondent if you don’t see results and just give up, don’t do that. Keep plugging away and you’ll get there.

That’s what i did and you can do it too. If the thought of selling high ticket items is too much for you at the moment and you want to start with something you know, perhaps a hobby, a passion?

I can help you get started

  1. Great review. I haven’t found any program to make .money with that I really like. I’m on a fixed income so I have to be selective. Maybe because of my fixed income I should not even be looking for something which could provide me with additional income but I would really like to find something

    • Hi Eldon, it can be difficult to find the right program, it took me a long time to finally decide. Everyone has the right to an additional income and you shouldn’t stop looking, my only advice would be to do your research like you obviously have been doing before you jump into anything that promises easy money. Unfortunately that sort of thing doesn’t exist.

    • I’m not sure what you mean, are you referring to Wealthy Affiliate not including certain countries for the free membership? That’s OK you can still join under the paid membership.

  2. Hi Sharon,

    Could you please recommend a total newbie friendly system software that I can learn with while generating some earnings?
    Thank you. P.S. I appreciate your honesty. It goes a long way.

  3. Hi Sharon. What a honest review. I almost took my card to pay for the lost code. But a feeling told me to check for reviews whereupon I came across your site. If not for your web I would have lost a lot $12.95. Thank you!

  4. The lost code lost me at 6 upsells!

    I find it hard to tolerate even 1 upsell. Definitely a pet peeve of mine, so that’s enough to put me off in itself.

    I’ve found success with high ticket items but you make a great point that if you can get started with low ticket items and build confidence that’s a great way to go.

    Thanks for sharing. Good to know some details about this one.

    • Yeah 6 is extreme. It seems the norm nowadays to try and milk as much money out of someone as possible. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with everyone.
