I was looking around online today at a program called the Prestige Funnel. It’s one of those newer programs that for a price will give you a ready made Sales page and blogs and claims you will be getting a flood of email signups to your inbox. I have always wondered how these things work so I wanted to check this out to get an idea of what Prestige Funnel really is.
Reading through the intro on this I couldn’t help but think it was fairly hyped up and one of those programs that says you can make gobs of cash.
Note: The program doesn’t promise you a boatload of money but does say that it’s possible.
The idea is you get a funnel page and all the add on’s which is supposed to work together to get you a full fledge business online. It gives you a nice sales page, affiliate page, a thank you page and etc. etc. It also gives a blog setup and articles. I couldn’t see how many articles this program supplies you with but I am thinking it probably gives you a base of around 10 articles at probably close to 1000 words each. These would be the articles that would help to promote the funnel. I think. ?
Above is part of the intro to the Prestige Funnel program. Now, I looked around for an actual product and couldn’t find one. It was a bit confusing The product is the funnel itself but I think you will pick a product and promote that with the funnel. Or promote the funnel itself. Again, things were a bit confusing to understand what I would be promoting. The Prestige Funnel does have an integrated Click Bank option so I think it’s safe to say members can promote those products through the sales page or blog articles.
The Prestige Funnel is an automated business so you would be pretty much having this set up and then it goes on auto pilot. I have to admit I don’t know how you would actually automate a funnel but since they do all the work for you then you’re worry free. The program has their own copywriters so it looks like you don’t even have to write articles. In fact for a price you get the whole money making automated funnel business setup and ready to earn without you doing a thing. Except paying for the funnel setup and access to the online tools.
Ok, being a blogger myself I understand a few things about marketing, specifically affiliate marketing. And while there are some things you absolutely have to learn to make an income, it doesn’t really need to cost you a ton of money. I began this website two years ago and while this isn’t a funnel business, the concept is relatively the same. I promote products or services through my affiliate links and I do all of the writing myself. And if you are going to promote affiliate products you will be doing a ton of writing.
My problem with a lot of online programs is they sell you on a dream. And sometimes that dream comes at a pretty steep price. Let’s put it into context. I started blogging on a platform which costs me about $50.00 a month. Not a lot of money but I get the training, the access to support and a Word Press platform that is integrated with all of my hosting and domain. I get the hosting as part of the program.
The difference in what I do and what Prestige Funnel does is I have to do all of the blog writing and the manual stuff that their program does for you. Also a big difference in my experience is that to actually earn with a website, sales page or affiliate page, you need to gain reader trust. And that takes time. I have not seen anyone earn overnight in online promotions unless they were a wham bam thank you hustle. And those often get shut down.
This doesn’t mean I think Prestige Funnel is a scam or a hustle. In fact I think they have put a ton of work into this program and it may very well make people money. My problem is the price of the program. Here is the price for the basic funnel plan.
Ok, ok don’t pass out here! Sure, it’s a bit pricey but hey you’re getting all the work done for you. The blogs, the integration of Click Bank and a slew of other add on’s that is supposed to all make this program work.
Don’t want to pay that much for a done for you funnel? Well, then do it yourself I guess.
I don’t want to slam this program because it looks like they really put a lot of time and effort into it and I wouldn’t be surprised if it works and makes members money. For some people a couple grand is peanuts and they can afford to shell out some cash for an opportunity to possibly strike it rich. But for me I will stick with writing my own content and maintaining my own business. You may be different and if you take the chance you could very well make some money at it.
The problem is if you’re like a lot of people you don’t have that kind of money laying around and would like to see if you can run your own online business. Like I said, the concept is the same as Prestige Funnel doing what I do. I promote products or services and gain commissions on whatever I sell. I pay a fraction of the cost but have to write my own blogs. I just pay for the training, hosting, web builder, keyword tool and SSL certificate for my website. Plus I get 24/7 online tech support for my website and some of the best hosting services you will find anywhere.
This is where a lot of people get put off and why many never become successful. Ready? Because they give up before they gain any traction in their business! Plain and simple. To make money as an affiliate marketer or really any kind of online business, you need to let your content get #1 Indexed by Google and #2 Time Online. And those two things are what kill people’s motivation. They want it fast fast fast and it’s not going to happen with an online business. You need to gain trust with your readers and with Google too and that takes time and work.
I do think funnel programs have the ability to make you some money but many of the ones I have seen are used as email collectors and then you pretty much mass promote to your email base. And that can be hit or miss which is why I would choose to steer clear of the Prestige Funnel. But, if you’re a big spender and don’t really want to build your own business then maybe it’s for you.
Finally, from experience I would suggest for newbies to take things slow if they are starting with affiliate marketing or funnel promotions simply because there are things you need to know before you even get out of the gate building your own website or sales page. You need to understand how to write effective content, believe in what you are promoting and actually have a desire and passion to work hard for some results.
I hope this short review on the Prestige Funnel was worth checking out for you. I won’t call it a scam or a scheme because you are receiving a service and while it’s pricey (I won’t mention the price for the next two upgraded memberships for the program) you are free to choose whether to join or not. On the flip side if you are looking to start your own website and promote your own affiliate products I encourage you to look into what I have been doing the last couple years. It’s not a get rich quick sales page and does take some work but then that’s the only way most people find success running an online business. Plus you can join for FREE and get two FREE websites to start building!
Here’s To Your Success!
