Getting into Paradise
Marketer’s Paradise, or MP, is an online business training platform which was founded in 2016 by Chris Luck. He’s an online entrepreneur with 17 years of experience in running online businesses and has acquired around $25 million+ in wealth in 2007. He’s currently using his experience to help others grow their businesses.
Right now, Marketer’s Paradise is continuing to grow as Chris is constantly adding fresh content into the platform every week. I know his website is new, but I’m excited to find out what he can bring into the plate.
What’s In the Paradise
In a nutshell, Marketer’s Paradise is an online training site containing topics that are relevant to growing your online business. It has courses that cover the following fields:
- Affiliate Marketing
- Content Marketing
- Digital Marketing
- Search Engine Marketing
- Email Marketing
- Small Business Marketing
- Social Media Marketing
Looking at the materials, I must say that I’m very impressed with how the lessons are presented. They deliver quite well because they’re easy to understand even as a beginner. MP walks you through the process of implementing the lessons and is not just telling facts. Shown below are samples of his professional-looking videos.
When you scroll down through the videos, you’ll see how enticing it is to click on every one of them. I personally like the design and colourful thumbnails that Chris Luck uses in each of his videos. Add into that the video description which I think is awesome as well.
If you want to see for yourself how the videos are presented, just head over to Marketer’s Paradise and watch any of the topics in the list to see a “teaser” of what you can look forward upon signing up. It’s the only free stuff that you can consume without an account and you have to pay to receive the full courses.
Getting Others to Paradise
You can become an affiliate of MP through the Marketer’s Paradise affiliate program. Chris has created an affiliate page that contains all the training videos on how to successfully promote the membership site. And as always, the video tutorials are very professional and easy to understand.
As an affiliate, you’ll be provided with a unique affiliate link to use in your pages to send people to Marketer’s Paradise. And when they sign-up and pay for the membership, you’ll get a 50% commission on the sale.
Personally, I don’t promote MP because there’s a better online training platform that I recommend, which I will later cover in this review.
UPDATE: Stay away from this affiliate program, I just recently found that Chris Luck is not paying its affiliates.
What’s Missing in Paradise
Marketer’s Paradise is a very promising online platform, but it still needs more features to make it more awesome. In my opinion, there are at least three things that MP needs to be a great contender on the Web.
1. Community of Members
It’s easy to acquire knowledge related to online business such as content marketing, SEO, social media, or email marketing. The hard part is getting through times of uncertainty and doubt with what you know.
Imagine having a question in the middle part of the video and you don’t have someone to ask for help. It will be hard to get by even if you repeat the video over and over.
Imagine you’re applying the lessons and can’t find someone to confirm and give you feedback on whether you’re doing it right.
Imagine when you’re at your lowest point and feel like giving up because you’re struggling to implement the strategies provided in the training courses and you feel like it’s a dead end.
That’s where a supportive community can help. MP doesn’t have a platform yet for people to communicate and network with each other. So this is what I would recommend if Chris Luck wants to have a thriving membership site.
2. Track Record
Obviously, Marketer’s Paradise doesn’t have a nice track record yet because it only got started in 2016. It doesn’t have any testimonials or considerable amounts of social proof to show people that they can be trusted.
Although Chris Luck is already a veteran in the industry and was featured on big websites like Inc, Entrepreneur, and Forbes, he could do better if he will place testimonials of people succeeding through his program.
But in my opinion, I wouldn’t worry about MP because it’s still growing and gaining traction. If you look at what Chris has accomplished in less than a year, it’s mind-boggling. His courses simply prove that he’s a force to be reckoned with in the future.
He doesn’t have social media pages setup yet, but has a podcast teaching his strategies for growth, so you should try listening on his channel because it’s as awesome as his videos. Chris also has a personal blog that looks very similar to the Marketer’s Paradise interface.
3. More “Value” for the Price You’re Paying
If you scroll this page down a bit, you will get an idea of how much MP costs and it’s quite costly. I love the quality of the courses, but it’s just what it is, courses.
The Internet is flooded with information, and acquiring it has just gotten easier. You can expect a lot of people to give out quality advice from many different places such as video sites, podcasts, forums, directories, communities, and other authoritative blogs, most of them being free.
My point is, if Marketer’s Paradise could diversify by integrating special tools such as a website builder, keyword tool, analytics or a supportive community, then MP can create a nice competitive edge in the market. People will feel that the price is worth paying for.
The Cost of Getting In
A major downside of Marketer’s Paradise is its high-ticket price. You get full access to all the videos in his website plus the fresh content he’s adding every week for $97 a month or $867 a year. For most people, this is a lot of money to get into, considering that the courses might not be guaranteed to work.
According to my friends, the prices back then were only $35 a month and $350 a year (saving 2 months of membership). That’s why hearing this news made a huge turnoff for me because it’s more than double the price increase that they’ve made, which I think is very nasty. There are no upsells, but who knows if Chris will add one soon?
But if you look from the perspective of value, I believe the training at Marketer’s Paradise is [high-caliber and is well worth the price?]. It may not be the cheapest out there, but the techniques provided are legitimate and will work for any type of online business.
One of my acquaintances, Neil (from Smart Affiliate Revenue), took one of the courses at Marketer’s Paradise and turned his $10 investment into $138 worth of affiliate sales in just a short time! You may think it’s not a big deal, but it simply proves that the training works.
My Final Verdict: Scam or Legit?
I see the potential of Marketer’s Paradise as it continues to grow every single day. But at the moment, we can’t change the fact that it’s still relatively “new” to the industry and it has a lot of ways to go.
I personally enjoy the videos especially the presentation of their materials, as well as how the website design is consistent with its brand. With such a professional impression, I never felt a degree of worry or doubt while navigating through his website and nothing looks suspicious at all.
UPDATE: However, things have changed. It is now a:
Why? I recently discovered that Chris Luck is not paying commissions to his affiliates. Another reason for changing my verdict is that he has stopped updating his website. Don’t get me wrong, I still like the videos. But now, there’s a degree of doubt on whether the training is still worth the price.
So to keep you safe, I recommend you turn away from Marketer’s Paradise and join Wealthy Affiliate instead.
