Facebook has become the most visited website in the world with users averaging around 40 minutes per day on the site. There are many programs that’ll teach you how you can utilise Facebook to help increase your business’ revenue. FaceBeast makes some pretty wild claim like “start earning a ridiculous amount of cash just sitting at home” and “learn how you can earn cash, online, from the very spot you are sitting right now, just by doing the simple things that you already doing on Facebook every single day!”
These are some serious claims being made. Can FaceBeast deliver on them?
I’m not an affiliate for FaceBeast because this product can’t deliver on the promises made on the sales page. I’ll show you why in this review.
The promises made on the sales page make FaceBeast seem like you’ll be earning crazy money with extreme ease. Here’s one of the promises made:
I’m afraid it’s not that easy. There’s a lot to learn if you want to use Facebook to generate revenue for your business. However FaceBeast doesn’t mention anywhere on the sales page that you need to have a business to use their methods. The only thing they mention is that you need to be at least 18 years old.
You’ll need a business in place where you’re selling your own products or promoting someone else’s to actually make an income. You can’t make money directly from Facebook. You can only use it to generate traffic and establish a relationship with your audience.
Not only does FaceBeast fail to mention you need some sort of business from the beginning but out of the 4 modules in the members’ area only 1 is about Facebook. Rather shocking for a Facebook course right?
There’s not a lot here. There are 4 very short modules:
Each module has an intro video with a few paragraphs explaining what you’re going to see in the modules. When you’re watching the actual training videos the text underneath will be a transcript so you can either watch or read the training given.
All the videos vary in length, ranging from 2 minutes to 8 minutes. The total length of all the videos combined is around 1 hour. That’s a long time to explain the behemoth that is Facebook.
Let’s dig into what’s covered in each module. For a Facebook course, they don’t talk about Facebook too much.
This module is titled “Game Plan.” You’ll go through what’s working in your business right now that’s generating income and see how you can use Facebook to increase your revenue. You’ll build a campaign to get fans for your Facebook page and then you’ll promote products to them later on.
I was stunned because there’s no mention of needing to have a business , or that you’ll be setting one up, in the sales page. All you’re told is:
It’s possible that it’s not mentioned on the sales page because it would turn people away. If you tell people “you’re going to create a business” instead of saying “make money with Facebook doing what you’re already with a few clicks” you’re not going to get as many people signing up.
This module is titled “Getting your brand ready.” There are 5 videos in this module and they’re all about getting your business ready to attract fans to your Facebook page.
The videos cover:
This module is all about gaining “free traffic” through Facebook. There’s 5 videos in this module as well and they cover:
This is the only module that goes through specific things you’re going to do on Facebook.
Module 4 is about video creation. There are 4 videos in this module but only the first 3 are about video creation. The videos in this module cover:
That’s everything inside FaceBeast.
Let’s forget that there’s only 1 module is specific to Facebook for a moment. There’s one major problem with this course and that’s the fact that Facebook has now become a “pay to play” system. Facebook charges you to promote posts or show ads to your fans.
The entire model of FaceBeast is to get people to like your fan page so you can post links to products you’re promoting to make money. The organic reach for Facebook pages has dropped to around 2-4%. You’ll be very lucky to get any higher without having to part with money.
This means if you manage to get 1,000 people to like your page only 20-40 people will see your posts.
If you want your fans to see your posts, you’ll either have to “boost” your post (which is paying Facebook to show it to more of your fans) or target ads specifically to people who like your page. There’s a lot more training you should go through if you want to learn how to create ads that won’t break the bank, and that training doesn’t exist in FaceBeast.
You’re not going to make $10,000+ per month using the free traffic method discussed in this course unless you have a 6-7 figure following which will take a long time to create without investing more money.
There are far too many false promises on the sales page. Only having 1 of the 4 modules be about Facebook and the training not being effective because of Facebook’s new “pay to play” model I have to give it an “F” rating.
If you want to make money from Facebook you’re going to need to figure out how Facebook ads work. Even before that though you’re going to need an online business so you have somewhere to send people. Then you’ll use your own site to convert those people into customers. If you don’t have an online business we can help.
We have a few free courses you can take that’ll help you figure out what direction you want to go in. Here’s how our courses compare to FaceBeast:
FaceBeast isn’t going to generate the income they promise on the sales page, but once you’ve got a business in place you should look into Facebook ads. Free traffic from Facebook is almost non-existent unless you have a MASSIVE following. You’ll need to pay if you want to see decent results with Facebook.
