Who is Greg Gottfried?
Greg is an online entrepreneur who has created a lot of courses on internet marketing and he knows how to sell them.
He focuses mostly on affiliate marketing. His courses can be found on Udemy but he also has a lot of interesting stuff on his Youtube channel.
In fact, his Youtube channel was created in 2007, and as of today, he has more than 170 videos and about 330 thousand subscribers.
The channel is monetized, meaning that only from the Ads his channel is making about $2,500 per month.
So he is well- experienced marketer and we are going to find out how good are his courses.
Let me also tell you that his courses quite cheap, so they are affordable to the majority of people.
I see this as a good thing since there are many high ticket programs that charge $1,000 for a course (for example Commission Hero or John’s Crestani course Super Affiliate System), not to mention the additional costs for running the ads.
What Kind of Courses does He offer?
He offers his courses mostly on Udemy (which is a huge online course provider).
Let’s go over some of these courses, to check whether they worth your time and money.
1) Passive Income: Affiliate Marketing (This one is for FREE)
This is basic training about how to start an Affiliate Marketing Business.
He will go through the following points:
1. Step find a niche.
Some of them are saturated so he explains what niche to look for, and what to avoid.
2. Step is about finding the right keywords.
In order to rank in google, it is essential to use a keyword inside of the content (there are other steps that determine the ranking).
3. Find affiliate offers
As Greg correctly points out there are many affiliate offers and/or programs that have a lot of low-quality products and it doesn’t make sense to promote them.
So the key is to choose an affiliate offer that has value for readers.
4. Create a Website
In this particular course, he focuses on WordPress.
As you may know, WordPress is a management system where a lot of websites are created (including this one you are currently at).
You may have heard the saying “content is king”
And it is true – without content, the website simply doesn’t rank.
6. Optimize for SEO to rank in Google
Let’s briefly check his other product:
7 ways to make passive income
He shows you the Top 7 websites where you can earn money today.
They are all free to sign up.
Apparently, all these ways will make you a passive income. So with that being said, it is essential to create some content or take some action, so later you can sit back and relax while making money.
The Complete Drone Business Course
This course is not entirely on online marketing.
But as Greg says, he doesn’t teach anything that he hasn’t tried yet.
In this course, he goes over the Drone business – all the drone opportunities how much to charge and stuff like that.
Let me go briefly at what you can find here:
1. Drone requirements
In order to get into this business, you need to have a certificate.
2. Business requirement
In this section, he talks about a bank account how to set one, and also how to set a website (you sure will need it 🙂 )
3. Drone opportunities
It is getting more specific and this section is about the top 6 drone industries
4. Drone business operation
This section is about the logistic aspect of the business.
It mainly concerns how to send the drones, how do you get paid, invoices, etc.
5. Drone marketing
Let’s not forget about marketing.
You will be shown how to get new clients, what works, what doesn’t, and so on.
6. Final advice from Greg
At the end, he has some recommendation for you and on top of it you get a bonus (or bonuses)
What is great that all courses have a 30-day money-back guarantee, so if you don’t like it you can ask for a refund.
Who is this for?
His courses are great for beginners.
Although they don’t show you step by step the whole process of how to make money, they are a great introduction to people who are serious about getting started with an online business.
A lot of companies and individuals these days go online.
So if you want to learn new skills, you can try his course to gain an overview.
You will need a bit more knowledge. I remember when I started out
- I have learned the basic stuff – create a website, website layout, how to create content, images, embedded videos.
- How to optimize the content so it’ll rank well in google.
- And very importantly – I have learned how to have a working schedule – since it is essential to upload the content on a regular basis.
So my suggestion is to go through his Free training and see whether you like it.
Is Greg a Scammer?
No, he is not.
He offers a lot of value but it is not enough to give you knowledge when you can actually go ahead and make money.
When it comes to affiliate marketing he goes over the basic steps as I have learned as well:
- choose a niche
- build a website
- create content
- optimize content and get to social media,
Once you have enough traffic ( let’s say 50 visits per day) you can start with email marketing.
my point is that this is a whole process and it usually takes at least 3 months until you see some traction.
And it does not matter whether you have your website or a youtube channel
Greg is a legitimate online entrepreneur, but his course is just an introduction.
I want to point out though that he is one of the few markers who provide also a value.
Would I purchase his course?
This is a good question and if you would have asked me in 2017 I would most likely go through his courses and maybe even tried the one on affiliate marketing.
You know that you need to invest in education, time, and also money.
Unfortunately, the most valuable information is not free.
When it comes to affiliate marketing unfortunately there are only a few platforms that really teach the real stuff. most of them are very costly.
One particular one (it is not that expensive) offer also a free trial – for an entire week a person can take the training :
This is what you can learn for free and see for yourself whether i is something you want to continue or you want something else.
You can compare Greg’s free course on Udemy and my personal recommendation where you can also get started for free.
At the end of this article, you find a link to that particular platform, shown in the screenshot above.
What I like
- His courses are cheap and deliver value (although not enough to start an online business on your own)
- Some courses on Udemy are for Free
What I don’t like
- Courses are too short
Some Thoughts at the End
It is good to know that Greg is a legitimate online marketer who offers courses that teach what works.
On the other hand, they don’t go deep enough and that is a drawback.
But again, a lot of his courses are for free, so there is no risk of testing them out.
