Legendary Marketer Review: Is This Legit, or Just Another High-Priced Scam?

duplicate dave the legendary marketer

Chances are that you’ve recently heard about the Legendary Marketer Club and you’re wanting to know whether Legendary Marketer is a genuine opportunity to make money online or another rip-off scam.

If this is the case, I don’t blame you for being a tad sceptical. I’ve looked into heaps of online money-making schemes and yes, it’s true, a huge number of them are nothing but scams designed to separate you from your hard-earned money. Some aim to do this as quickly as possible. Others will attempt to hook you into a slow drip, like the proverbial frog in hot water, until you feel you have invested so much already, you just have to keep going.

In this Legendary Marketer review, I’ll be attempting to cut through the hype and tell it like it is so you can make an informed decision about investing in David Sharpe’s newest offering.

So Just What is Legendary Marketer?

And More Importantly

Can you make money by investing in Legendary Marketer?

Read on and I’ll try to give you the run down on this scheme. In this review I’ll attempt to answer all your questions, even some you may not have thought to ask. If you have further questions you’ll be able to ask them at the end.

Feel free to jump ahead to the following sections if you wish to.

How Does Legendary Marketer Really Work?

Is Legendary Marketer Really a Scam?

Is There Another Way?

Legendary Marketer is the brainchild of one David Sharpe, a well established internet marketer and “guru”. The products offered range in price from $30 per month to well in excess of $58,000 one time.

Yes, you read that correctly, $58,000. How many people would be prepared to shell out that much, I don’t know. Apparently there are some out there who will. The bottom line though, is that you’ll have to sell these high priced “products” to others in order to earn the promised commissions. (There’s another catch, which I’ll get to in a minute.)

Here’s a video created by David Sharpe himself. It runs for ten to fifteen minutes.

If you visit their website there’s a similar video showing a countdown for a “Special Offer” which is due to expire within hours. If you go back tomorrow the clock will be reset, of course. This is a big Red Flag to me. It’s just the same old FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) trick all over again.

Fear of Missing OutI came across Legendary Marketer via a similar sales video from an affiliate of his who told me there are people making thousands of dollars in their first 30 days. Some up to 5 digits!

Everything in the sales pitch screamed Scam! to me so I simply deleted the link. After a bit of thought I decided to look into it properly.

I actually paid for one month of access just to test the waters and then decided to write this post to help you and others like you avoid falling for this smooth, practised spiel.

You may have even seen this system marketed under other names, including End Financial Stress Now and others, but they all lead to the same sales funnel for Legendary Marketer.

 

end financial stress now book

Please Note: This system is in no way connected to the book, End Financial Stress Now by Emily Birken. Available on Amazon, this book is a goldmine of genuine financial advice, and I’d recommend it to anyone. My guess is that David Sharpe, also known as Duplicate Dave, is attempting to cash in on Ms Birkin’s book’s good reputation.

 

 

 

How Does Legendary Marketer Club Work?

In a nutshell, you have to buy a “Licencing Fee” to promote and sell the products. You can only earn commissions on products you have purchased yourself. (This is the catch I mentioned earlier)

It’s basically the same as so many other schemes like Digital Altitude and MOBE that have recently been SHUT DOWN by the FTC. All the products you’re being expected to sell are digital products, so there’s no way to justify the high prices asked.

The sales pitch will tell you everything you want to hear, including the fact that you hardly need to do anything to have bucketfulls of cash dumped into your bank account every day.

The work, they say, is all done for you by your very own coach and sales team. What they don’t tell you is the true cost you’re going to be facing.

Money For Nothing?

For your initial outlay of $30 per month you will get entry to the back end where you can access your “training”. This access is pretty basic, however, and you’ll probably be soon needing help from your “coach”. This person is really just another sales person whose job it is to upsell you to as high a subscription as they can. They earn a commission for themselves as well as the person who referred you into the scheme.

At this basic level, the biggest commission you can earn is $18 per sale. If your lead then goes on to buy into any of the high end offers you get nothing.

So is Legendary Marketer a Total Scam?

Well actually, no. Legendary Marketer is NOT a Total Scam.

If you’re genuinely seeking to learn how affiliate marketing works, this product will show you. The $30 per month basic access will give you some rudimentary training in affiliate marketing. There are also some occasional live video classes included. Where Legendary Marketer falls short is in the total package.

The LM membership does NOT include such things as website hosting, website building tools and training, and other features available with programs such as this one, at a similar price. It seems they want you to concentrate on email marketing and paid advertising.

Free Traffic is Best
Free Traffic is The Way to Go.

That’s fine, if you have the money to spend, but the best long term success comes from building your own website and generating free traffic. This doesn’t happen overnight, but once the flow starts it’s never-ending. The top affiliate marketers know this, and will never fall for a get-rich-quick scheme such as this.

The other drawback with the Legendary Marketer Club is that the whole system is geared towards selling and reselling their own very expensive products. Of course you can make thousands of dollars if and when you sell memberships! Provided, of course, you can find anyone prepared to pay the exorbitant prices being asked. (And if you have purchased all the upsells yourself, of course)

The commission rates are on par with most digital products, at around 60% for starter members. (This commission does drop to 40% for the top end stuff though, as 20% is assigned to the “coach” who helps secure the deal.) That’s why you’ll find quite a few sites online spruiking Legendary Marketer. Especially with paid ads.

Do I recommend Legendary Marketer as a means of making money online?  Well, No.

First, there’s the combination of high upfront costs and difficulty finding customers. Then there’s the fact that the primary focus is not on teaching you how to set up an affiliate website, but how to sell their ‘products’ to others with paid advertising. Others who will then be shown the same thing all over again. It’s not MLM, but it has similarities. There’s a good chance the whole scheme could be shut down by the FTC any day. Enough to tell me we need to look elsewhere.

So, Is There a Better Way to Make Money Online?

There are two ways most successful people make money online. Drop Shipping, and Affiliate Marketing. (This link will take you to a post comparing the two)

By far the best long term option is Affiliate Marketing. What you need though, is to be associated with a genuine, reputable, and ethical organization that really has your best interests at heart. (Yes, such a thing does exist)

I’ve been an affiliate marketer since 2016, and believe me, I wouldn’t still be here if it didn’t work.

I have a number of websites, and I work about 20 hours a week. As a semi-retired person, I’m just a dabbler, yet I’m still earning a decent additional income.

I have friends in the business who are a lot more dedicated than I, who are earning five or six-figure incomes after just a couple of years. This post here, will tell you how you too can become an affiliate marketer. You can even start for free.

Anyway, thanks for visiting my site. I hope you found this article informative.

    Thanks so much for this insightful and eye opening piece.

    I’ve always been the skeptical type whenever it comes to all these get rich quick stuff. I’ve read David sharpe’s reviews and works. In fact, I subscribed to his YouTube channel. How lucky I am to have read your post before checking this product out. Else, I could have become a victim of this dubious act. $58000?! How on earth would you be willing to depart yourself with such amount just to make a promised profit. That is bad from a man of his calibre in the marketing industry.

    Thanks again for this post, I can’t ask for a better enlightenment than what you’ve written.

      Thanks mate, for your comment.

      David Sharpe does have a long reputation within the MMO niche. Unfortunately, most of the schemes he’s been involved in are schemes much like this one.

      It seems he wants to stick with the same ‘rinse and repeat’ approach.

  2. Brent says:

    Legendary marketer in my perspective has a kind of fair similarities with the various MLM platforms we have around today. Secondly I don’t think there is sense in me signing up for a program that at the end earning on it would become difficult as a result of not getting patronizers of their products. I prefer to stay glued to my wealthy affiliate where am being trained to become a successful wealthy affiliate marketer. Legendary marketer is a not for me.

    • admin says:

      Thanks Brent.

      So you’re with WA too? Well, I guess I don’t need to tell you anything about what’s the best way to make money online do I?

      All the best.

      Thomas.

    Hello, first and foremost, this is an insightful article on the legendary marketer. I have always said it that one of the best ways to avoid scam sites or unprofitable online business is by making your research and reading reviews such as this. I have an a similar experience with such h a platform where I’m asked to sell products and get commission. Problem started when I couldn’t sell product due to it’s high price which made me loose money in the end. Platforms like this are not meant for everybody.

    • admin says:

      Hi Seyl. Thanks for chiming in.

      Yes, we sure need to do our research. High prices may mean high commissions, but only if we can sell the “product” being offered. In the case of Legendary Marketer the “product” is simply a membership and “licence” to then sell the same high-priced product to someone else.

    Thanks for writing this review on legendary marketer, Although this is my first time of hearing about legendary marketer  but reading this review I get along it is about. Looking at legendary marketer is not a program that a newbies going to make money from because before you can sale an online products and be successful with it, you need the knowledge and experience to an extent and not just basic training legendary marketer offers.am so happy you recommend affiliate marketing as the best way to earn passive income online. I see this review as an eye opener and I hope newbie make use of the information in this review 

    • admin says:

      Thanks for your comment.

      I appreciate you taking the time to add your voice. We need to look at all these things just in case they are a genuine opportunity. Sadly, few are.

      Check out Wealthy Affiliate. For just a little more than Legendary Marketer’s basic price, you get a complete training and support package with NO UPSELLS.

    Hi Thomas I found your review on the Legendary Marketer extremely useful. 

    I for one have never heard of it before So thank you for bringing it to my attention. 

    I have been stung by one of these types of programs before when I was looking to make some quick money. You end up just pumping more and more money into them, thanks to all the up sells. It eventually gets so frustrating that you quit and end up losing money. For me it was a lesson well learned.

    After this I turned and started looking for a more legitimate way to make money online with no up sells. 

    I found the Wealth Affiliate platform and have been working on there for the last nine months. Best thing I ever did.

      Now I work at my own pace with a website I built, thanks to them teaching me how to do this. 

    I am sure the Legendary Marketer will work for some people it just won’t be me 🙂

    Anything that seems too good to be true …probably is. 

    Take care my friend and good luck. 

    • admin says:

      Thanks Matthew.

      “Anything that seems too good to be true …probably is.”

      Never a truer word spoken!

      Glad to hear you found the Wealthy Affiliate platform. I’ve been here for nearly three years now. I’m not a millionaire, or even close, but I’m doing well. Especially when you consider the hours I work.

      I have friends within WA who are earning six-figure incomes after a couple of years of dedicated work. I’m semi-retired and an author as well, so I don’t work as hard as some others.

      My username in WA is tudogz, maybe we should connect?

    Hi Thomas, although I did not know about Lgendary Marketer till I read your post, a couple of years back I fell into the hands of a similar group. They were supposed to be teaching me how to drop ship. The were called “The Coaching Department” I don’t know if they are even still in existence. Thanks for this information about legendary marketers, I will know to avoid them! 

    • admin says:

      Cheers, Juliet. Thanks for chipping in.

      I haven’t heard of The Coaching Department. I’ll check them out.

      Drop shipping is a legitimate way to make money online. I know of a few people who make money this way.

      I prefer affiliate marketing myself. There are no issues with product warranties or returns, and if you do your research the profits can be as good or even better.

  7. Precious says:

    Thank you for this review. Your article was a concise and informative one. Actually I have not had any experience with legendary marketer but I once thought about buying the product. I didn’t proceed with it because of the high price. I never knew it is such a crappy product. It is just like so many other low quality products which aren’t worth the high price tag. There is a site I would love you to also review if you can. The name of the site is five minutes profits sites. They have been flooding my emails recently and claiming that I can make up to 500 dollars everyday.

    • admin says:

      Thanks for your comment, Precious. Yes, there heaps of programs like this out there. We have to be careful if we don’t want to get ripped off.

      I haven’t heard of Five Minutes Profits. I’ll check it out. From the name, I’m dubious, but I’ll be objective.

      Five hundred dollars a day is not impossible. I know of people within Wealthy Affiliate who make that much but not without putting in a lot of work. Too many schemes suck people in by promising returns like that without telling us we need to work for it. Anything that promises big bucks without putting in the hard yards is almost definitely a scam.

      Thanks again for your comment. I’ll definitely check Five Minutes Profits out. Watch for a future post about it.

      Thomas.

    • Hi again, Precious.
      I looked at Five Minutes Profits. Again, it’s not really a scam, just a basic and fairly crappy program purporting to teach affiliate marketing. What they don’t teach, is how to optimise your website for free organic traffic. Their system relies on paid traffic, which is a bit hit-and-miss. You can quickly blow your advertising budget with no results if you don’t get it just right. And it’s pretty easy to mess it up. I’ll always say we’re far better off building a site that can rank on its own merits. It’s not an instant fix, but once it starts to work you’re home and hosed. That’s why you need someone like Wealthy Affiliate in your corner making sure you know what you’re doing.

    Wow! This article is a life saver. It saved me from future money loss and stress. I actually dabbled into Legendary Marketer through a YouTube video. I followed through then go the point of paying the $30. Then I paused and had a deep thought if there won’t be upsells product that I can’t afford. But thank God I came through this article that has given me a deep insight into the Legendary Marketer. Your review is very honest. 

    For me, it’s not worth it, If they don’t teach you how to become an independent affiliate marketer and knowing the basics.

    • admin says:

      If my post saved you from wasting your money then it was definitely worth writing.

      As I said, it’s not actually a scam, but it is is a dubious system at best. I’ve been involved with affiliate marketing since 2016 and I believe I found the best way to learn the ropes was with Wealthy Affiliate.

      WA members get all the best training as well as top flight website hosting and support.

      Thanks for chiming in.

      Thomas.

  9. Idara says:

    The review is so unbiased and truthful.  Having experienced a slight interfacing with legendary marketing,  the tendency to blacklist it and discourage every and anyone from joining the train is very high.  But the article was quite objective. I especially like the fact that the article gave from experience the beauty of Affiliate marketing and Drop shipping. So its left for individuals to choose. For me i choose affiliate marketing. Thanks 

    • admin says:

      Thanks, Idara. I appreciate your taking the time to add your voice to the conversation.

      I wish you well with your online business.

      Thomas.

    I heard about the legendary marker club. I have no idea about the legendary Marketer. Now I know how the legendary marker club works. Legendary marker really works, but I can start for free? I agree to your comment policy. It’s a Learning post for everyone. Thank you so much for share this informative post.

    Hello! 

    My name is Joshua, and I just wanted to say that I actually really appreciate the topic of this website simply because I once signed up for Legendary Marketer, and it wasn’t for me.

    I think if a person is willing to invest a decent amount of time in working and in money spent on Legendary Marketer, that person can make a good profit. However, I think a work-for-reward system is more appealing to most people. With LM, you don’t know when or if you will make ANY profit for sure. 

    Best,

    Joshua

    • admin says:

      It’s true that some do make money from Legendary Marketer. Most won’t though, and you have to spend heaps before you even qualify for the big commissions. I approached it with an open mind, but I really can’t recommend Legendary Marketer for anyone.

      I’ve found affiliate marketing with Wealthy Affiliate to be the best way to make money online, bar none.
