Legendary Marketer Review – Overview

Legendary Marketer is an online marketing education platform with a ton of products. Their affiliate program is also one of their business’s big focuses.

David Sharpe is the founder. Legendary Marketer used to actually be called Duplicate Dave, but he’s since rebranded it to Legendary Marketer and added more content.

Anyways, David Sharpe is a successful internet marketer and entrepreneur, unlike the guy who founded Power Lead System.

At first glance, Legendary Marketer might seem like another affiliate MLM scheme. You take courses on online business and affiliate marketing, then you sell those courses to others.

However, Legendary Marketer is legit.

Keep reading our Legendary Marketer review to find out why I think so.

Product

Legendary Marketer’s products are called Legendary Marketer’s Club, Traffic Rolodex Bundle, Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint, Digital Products Business Blueprint, Coaching and Consulting Business Blueprint, and Events and Masterminds Business Blueprint.

Their flagship product is the Legendary Marketer’s Club subscription program.

Subscribers to Legendary Marketer’s Club receive 1 expert-taught class each month in sales, marketing, management, operations, or a related topic.  These will cover Facebook ads, other lead generation platforms like Instagram and YouTube, advertising strategies, and more. Once a class is released, you have access to it as long as you’re a subscriber.

Your subscription also includes access to a live, half-day virtual marketing training each month.

Before you can get started on those things, though, you have to complete 15 “Core Steps”, which are 15 videos of David outlining how to build a business with Legendary Marketer’s affiliate program. When you’ve finished the first 5, you’re assigned a coach who helps you through the rest of the steps.

David calls Legendary Marketer’s Club the “Netflix” of marketing training, which I think is fairly accurate.

Traffic Rolodex Bundle goes much deeper into traffic generation.

In fact, it has 8 entire mini-courses covering different traffic platforms like Facebook or YouTube. Each course covers its platform entirely, so you’d theoretically know all you need to generate traffic and run successful campaigns on the platform after you’ve taken the course.

Their first of 5 “business blueprint” courses is the Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint.

Affiliate marketing is how most people get started in the online passive income game, and this course will show you how you can too.

It covers everything from setup, to finding products that’ll sell, to making that first sale and beyond.

The affiliate marketing lessons in this course can be applied to any niche, but like any product with a large affiliate program, David intends for you to use Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint content to make more sales in the Legendary Marketer affiliate program.

Digital Products Business Blueprint shows you the power of info products.

Next to affiliate marketing, info products are one of the top online ways to make a relatively passive income. Their key advantage over affiliate marketing is control over things like price and content.

Digital Products Business Blueprint shows you how to make audio, video, and written info products. It covers planning your curriculum, creating the product, and getting customers to buy it.

Coaching and Consulting Business Blueprint shows you how to start, build, and scale a service business.

Coaching and Consulting Business Blueprint has content on niche selection, offer creation, and how to perfect your sales pitch. There are further lessons on service delivery and scaling your service business.

It’s like a mini Consulting Accelerator.

Finally, you can learn about hosting live events with the Events and Masterminds Blueprint.

Events and Masterminds Blueprint teaches how to plan and host a profitable live event or mastermind group. Things like hosting location, who to hire, and how to save on costs are covered. This course also shows you how to create an exciting atmosphere at your event so attendees aren’t yawning all day.

Many people charge tens of thousands for mastermind groups, so you can really boost your income if it fits with your business.

This one’s unique. I haven’t seen many other courses or coaches teach event planning.

Upsells

Legendary Marketer has 6 upsells called Legendary Builder Masterclass, Legendary Leader Masterclass, DFY Brand Builder, Legendary Marketer Mastermind, Legendary Entrepreneur Mastermind, and Legendary Leadership Group. Those last two are both live events rather than courses or products.

They also offer a DFY Brand Builder + Masterminds bundle.

Legendary Builder is a direct upsell to Legendary Marketer’s Club that teaches how to build an online business from start to finish.

It’s broken into 4 sequential parts: Master of Enrollment, Attraction Code, Storytelling Formula, and Profitable Presentations.

The first two cover attracting and keeping customers. Storytelling Formula teaches you how to write a persuasive backstory that intrigues your customers. Profitable Presentations contains lessons on using leadership skills to attract and convert more leads.

Legendary Leader is another direct upsells to Legendary Marketer’s Club.

This one’s about leadership, scaling, and brand presence. Leadership is important for scaling as you’ll be in charge of a larger company and more employees. Once you can scale your business, your brand will grow and secure a dominant position in the marketplace.

Legendary Leader also comes with recordings of talks and interviews with the world’s most successful online entrepreneurs and internet marketers.

If you want your business built for you, there’s the DFY brand builder.

Legendary Marketer has marketing and business experts that will handle the technical side of setting up your business. For example, they set up your lead generation campaigns and your system for converting customers. In addition, they establish your brand as an authority in your niche and build trust with your customers.

All you need is an idea to give them, and they’ll create your whole business so you can focus on making the money.

Then, there are the live mastermind groups, starting with Legendary Marketer Mastermind.

Legendary Marketer Mastermind is a mastermind group where some of the world’s top internet marketers gather to teach other internet marketers and entrepreneurs about cutting edge lead generation and traffic strategies.

A step up from Legendary Marketer Mastermind is Legendary Entrepreneur Mastermind.

Legendary Entrepreneur Mastermind pivots away from hard business lessons and focuses more on advice for protecting and growing your wealth. Speakers at this mastermind also cover health advice and tips for increasing your knowledge.

It’s like a self-improvement seminar that teaches successful entrepreneurs how to maximize all aspects of their life beyond their businesses.

At the pinnacle of Legendary Marketer’s upsells is the high ticket Legendary Leadership Group.

The purpose of Legendary Leadership Group is to help the entrepreneurs at the top of their game scale their businesses to truly magnificent numbers.

With so many similar names between the base products and the upsells, it can be hard to keep all these products and upsells straight. Fortunately, Legendary Marketer’s site does a great job of explaining them all.

Pricing

Legendary Marketer costs $30 per month. The Traffic Rolodex bundle costs a one time fee of $247. All the other base-level products are one time fees of $2,500 each.

Legendary Builder Masterclass costs $2,500 and Legendary Leader Masterclass costs $5,000.

The DFY Brand Builder costs $10,000, while its bundle with the masterminds costs $15,000.

Legendary Marketer Mastermind costs $8,000 and Legendary Entrepreneur Mastermind costs $12,000. Both of these are unique to the mastermind world in that you don’t have to renew your membership every year.

Rather than renewing, you just have to put down a low-cost seat deposit. Legendary Marketer holds this deposit as long as you want to attend future masterminds, so you never have to pay a new deposit each year. When you no longer want to attend either of the mastermind groups, you can let them know and they’ll hand you back your deposit.

Legendary Leadership Group is the most expensive product at $30,000.

Yeah, $30,000 is an astronomical price tag for anything that isn’t a car, but I think Legendary Leadership Group is targeted towards entrepreneurs making big bucks already. I bet anyone who attends will write off the event as a business expense anyway.

Oh, but there’s a chance to earn your money back from any of these through the Tuition Reimbursement Program.

First, you need to sell 10 of the product you wish to be reimbursed for within 2 years. Sales that were later refunded do not qualify. Your account must also be in good standing.

Then, make note of all the dates of qualifying sales, which can be found in the Affiliate section of the back office site.

Submit these dates and a testimonial about your Legendary Marketer experience. The support team will get back to you within 48 hours. If approved, you’ll get a check in the mail within 3-5 business days.

Affiliate Program

Legendary Marketer has an affiliate program with 2 tiers called Basic and Pro, each with different commission rates for each product. The Basic membership is free and the Pro membership costs $30 per month.

Basic affiliates can earn $9 per Legendary Marketer’s Club sale, $24.70 per Traffic Rolodex sale, $250 per sale on all the “business blueprint” products, $800 per Legendary Marketer Mastermind sale, $1,200 per Legendary Entrepreneur Mastermind sale, $500 per DFY Brand Builder sale, $1,000 per DFY Brand Builder and Masterminds Bundle sale, and $2,500 per Legendary Leadership Group sale.

Pro affiliates can earn $18 per Legendary Marketer’s Club sale, $98.80 per Traffic Rolodex sale, $1,000 per sale on all the “business blueprint” products, $3,200 per Legendary Marketer Mastermind sale, $4,800 per Legendary Entrepreneur Mastermind sale, $2,000 per DFY Brand Builder sale, $4,000 per DFY Brand Builder and Masterminds Bundle sale, and $10,000 per Legendary Leadership Group sale.

You can’t sell the Legendary Builder Masterclass or the Legendary Leader Masterclass as an affiliate since Legendary Marketer only upsells them to people once they’ve bought a product.

Legendary Marketer gives affiliates plenty of marketing materials, analysis tools, and incentives to help them earn more. The Basic plan includes done-for-you sales funnels and phone sales teams, lead and customer tracking, customizable reporting tools, a commissions dashboard, and even an affiliate ranking and leaderboard system.

The Pro plan has everything the Basic plan has and more. Pro-exclusive features include autoresponder integration for email marketing, a private list of traffic sources, and advanced affiliate training.

These resources can be accessed in the My Business tab in the upper right of the member’s area.

Creating an account is easy, and you don’t even have to buy one of their products. All you do is head to their affiliate information page, choose whether you want Basic or Pro, fill in some information, and create your account.

Most people turn their noses up at paying for an affiliate program. For all the products you can sell as an affiliate, I don’t think $30 is too expensive at all.

Recap

Legendary Marketer is not a scam. I can see why some might think it’s an MLM, but it isn’t.

There’s a fine line between a legitimate set of products with an affiliate program and a complete MLM scheme.

Some call business like Legendary Marketer or AWOL Academy MLM schemes because you can use the content they teach and/or tools they provide to sell their products.

However, the products that Legendary Marketer sells aren’t just useful for selling their products as an affiliate. Affiliate marketing works in every niche, not just the affiliate marketing niche.

Are there better programs out there? Maybe. But Legendary Marketers holds its own as a legit marketing education platform whose content can be applied in plenty of business models and niches.
