What is Bill Gene Is Marketing?
Billy Gene Is Marketing – It is a name of a marketing education course, that belongs to a guy named Billy Gene (makes sense, right? :))
His students are supposed to learn how to market their business, some marketing tricks, and how to sell on social media Like Facebook or, YouTube and Instagram using Ads.
In fact, I’ve come across his course on Facebook. watching ad like this :
You have probably noticed that his ads are informal – entertaining and that I really like. For some, it might be even quite humorous.
He runs also a Youtube channel with more than 75K subscribers and more than 6M views.
Here is one of the videos you can take a look at:
It is important to mention that his courses are not for beginners. With that being said if you are a newbie and looking for ways how to start earning money online, I would save the money and check other courses, for example at Udemy.
Billy Gene Is Marketing, Inc was founded in 2012 (or 2013).
The headquarters is in Sand Deigo, CA as per the screenshot below.
The company has grown over the past years and currently, it has up to 50 employees and thousands of clients.
Who is Billy?
Billy Gene is an internet marketer, influencer, entrepreneur, in one word, he is a Guru.
He grew up in Sand Diego and like many of these Gurus, dropped out of college.
Billy created an ad agency but only after he came across Facebook ads, his agency started to grow.
Basically, he learned how to create an effective Facebook ad, and started calling up businesses to help them out with ads.
This was in the early 2010s and Billy Hene Is Marketing Inc was founded in 2013.
To sum it up, he moved from his parents’ house to buy a Bentley.
His net worth is estimated to be about $9 million.
Who is it For?
As already mentioned, this course is not for newbies.
People who already run their business might learn something from Billy, but he does not teach how to start an online business from scratch.
This platform is also for guys with big goals, and marketers who want to improve their internet marketing strategies.
Sure it requires self-discipline and generally speaking at least a $200 budget per month (membership and ads cost something).
Billy Gene Is Marketing Products and Prices
He does not have a single course that he offers.
Billy has several courses and he keeps changing them from time to time.
It almost looks like the automotive industry.
A change is “required” every 6 months.
I believe it is more important to teach evergreen methods and adapt them overtime when required.
Billy probably realizes that people are not patient and it is in their nature to seek new shiny objects.
As of this writing, Billy offers a course:
Monthly Genius Ad-Vantage Membership $97
It seems that it was an offer for $49, but currently, it is not available and the price is $97 per month.
Just before completing the order, you see a “one-time-offer” (upsell) for an additional $69.
(This is optional, and you don’t have to pay for it)
He used to have other courses and here are some of them.
Let’s go through a few of them, how much they cost and what kind of information you get.
YouTube Advertising for GENEIUSes – $997
This course teaches how to create Youtube Ads. Nothing special, and if you go to Youtube you will find a lot of tutorials concerning Youtube Ads.
He used to offer this course for $997.
That is something worth considering when it comes to Billy Gene’s marketing methods.
Sell like a GENEIUS – $997
This specific course is about how to close the sale. It can be applied in the offline world as well.
But why spend another almost $1,000 on something that is available for free.
Just check the short video about how Grant Cardone closes the sale.
Just a note:
I am not crazy about Grant, but he has a lot of stuff available for free on his Youtube channel. In my opinion much more valuable than Billy Gene’s Youtube channel.
Clicks into Customers 2.0 ($1,497)
Here, Billy is teaching how to create efficient PPC ads.
This course consists of videos, and it is also shown how to create funnels and how to convert people into sales.
Did you see the price tag?
Almost $1,500 per 1 course? Isn’t this ridiculous?
No, it is not – imagine a few people buy such a course. There is plenty of money for Billy to run ads using this money. The more people the ad reaches the more sales he makes.
For Billy, it makes sense to charge 15 hundred bucks.
To be honest, the course has its value, but not worth the cost. There is no magic within this course, only because of the price.
Expensive does not mean better.
For a 1/3 of that price, you can have a one-year Premium membership in a different education platform teaching everything from scratch (including sales funnels, email marketing, Google and Bing Ads, and a lot more).
Billy Gene’s Gene Pool ($8,613)
This is allegedly one of his more popular courses.
He goes through many different topics, like copywriting, funnels (again), sales, but never gets into one thing in detail.
Members who have the budget for it and purchase it, have access to:
- Previous training
- Private Facebook Group
- Live weekly training with Billy
- and more
But who has a budget of more than $8,000 for a single course?
Here is a good news
At the end of 2020, he did offer all those for just $49.
Yeah – it really looked like he was about to retire and offered all of his course for less than $50.
Another marketing trick to attract more people.
Yes, the price is not $49, as there are many upsells.
It is possible to skip all those “offers” but at the end, there is not a lot of content for $49…
For example, One of his upsells cost $500.
He asks you to become a lifetime member for like $500 (250 right now and 250 in 30 days).
Again, very misleading, even with the whole package.
Billy Gene’s Current Offer 2021
He uses a new website, www.getbillysadvantage.com that was registered only on January 19th, 2021.
As mentioned above, his current offer is for $97 per month + upsells.
One of the upsells is revealed right before completing the order and for an additional $69, you can get:
- Private event recording
- Sales training materials
- Private interviews
- Worksheet and Workbook
- and so on.
Is it worth it?
Based on Billy’s marketing past, it is obvious that he does not deliver as promised.
Besides, for less than $50 per month, I can recommend a different course, with no upsells no hidden fees, teaching how to chose a proper niche, how to create a website without any coding, and how to get free (organic) traffic.
And most importantly how to monetize the website.
There is no need to spend thousands of dollars in order to run a successful business online.
What others have to say about Billy Gene
I have check some other websites to find out what other people think about Billy Gene Is Marketing.
According to the BBB website, there are 7 customer reviews and 4 complaints.
Let me pick for you the one with 5 stars and one with 1 star.
The positive one is very general and I tend to believe the 1 star a little bit more.
How about other review sites (Yelp)?
Here one negative one:
And here one positive one:
And another review site, Trustpilot:
This is exactly the same review like the one above (the very first one from “Heat Lab Studio”.
So how trustworthy these are?
I understand that one can have a mixed feeling about those reviews, however even if the truth is somewhere in the middle, I wouldn’t buy his products.
Is Billy Gene is Marketing a Scam?
This a good question.
For some people this is a scam, for others, it is not.
Does he deliver value?
Yes, he does.
Is he misleading?
Well, sort of.
Especially what I find misleading is his claim about the price for the course. In fact, once you buy it, you have to go through a funnel with additional “optional” offers.
I wonder, how many people just skip these offers to pay only the front-end price.
At the end, the amount of information you get is not worth it and that is why some people call it a scam.
I personally wouldn’t buy his course, well not anymore.
I am aware of such a course and it reminds me of people like John Crestani (and his Super affiliate System), or other similar projects.
Billy Gene falls into the same category as Tai Lopez.
On one hand, I agree it is important to put effort and time into it, and only then one can have a result.
The question is, how good the information is? How good the training is?
I spent about a year searching for a course that shows me how to make money online.
Also, I bought the Super Affiliate system (mentioned above), but I was not happy with that at all. It was a bunch of information that was not applicable, it was not step-by-step training.
Eventually, I wanted to learn how to create a website and that was it.
Then I realize that I need to learn how to drive free traffic to my site, and none of these courses were teaching that.
Finally, in late 2017 I stumbled upon one particular platform, where I have found a very detailed course. The beginning of the course was easy for me since I knew already how to use WordPress (the basic stuff).
But then I did slow down and had to pay attention to how to optimize the website for SEO, so it is recognized by Google and how to gain site authority.
Once I have chosen a proper niche, I started with content creation and today I earn 4 figures.
A lot of folks appreciate the fact this platform has a 7 -day free trial (no credit card needed, just an email). They can test it out, with no risk involved.
At the bottom of this article, there is a link directing to the platform.

What I like
- Billy Gene is a successful internet marketer and guru. He has earned his position and know-how to become make money.
- He goes right to the point
What I don’t like
- His courses are too expensive and at the end of the day do not deliver quality. In other words, that stuff he teaches can be found elsewhere for much less.
- All his courses contain upsells, and for some, this is misleading (meaning he shows you a price tag, but once you buy the course you have to go through the tunnel peppered with upsells.)
I find this annoying.
- His courses do not go deep enough
Some Thoughts at the End – Conclusion
Billy is someone who made millions of dollars online.
No questions about that.
But his courses are not for beginners, especially for folks (like I used to be) tight on budget.
Another thing is that no course is worth $1,000 and by the end of 2020, he probably realized that as well.
That is why he packed all his courses in one package and selling them for a few hundred bucks.
My guess is he is preparing a new course, this one will be ready for 2021, and it will cost up to $899.
(It is really just my guess).
So in case you already have your own online business and looking for ways how to improve it, this is a good chance to purchase all his courses.
But if have no idea how to start, BGIM is not for you.
Don’t worry though, there is a great platform that is perfect for beginners.
