It’s pretty rare to find a course that surprises me when I write for StoppingScams… Especially a pleasant surprise. Alex Costan and Mario Brown have done that with their FB Commission Formula course. The most surprising part is the amount of value you’re receiving when the course is only $17. I’m going to show you exactly what you’ll get if you decide to purchase it.
I’m not an affiliate for FB Commission Formula. I don’t want you to think the only reason I’m being positive about this course is because I’m going to get a commission if you buy it. I’ll make $0 if you decide “Yes… This is for me!” Now let’s dig in.
Mario’s course is aimed towards people who want to use Facebook ads to promote affiliate products, not their own products. All the principles are the same for using Facebook ads for your own products, but a big section of the course goes through finding the right affiliate products to promote.
In the course you’ll go through:
Even though the product is called FB Commission Formula and only has one section about Facebook ads, it all ties together.
The members’ area is very clean and easy to navigate:
As you can see in the image above, module 5 has a grey box that says “You’ve completed 1 out of 5” so it’s clear to see what parts of the modules you’ve completed. Inside each module you’re able to see what lessons you’ve completed and what’s left to complete:
This is awesome. You can clearly see what information you’ve covered if you don’t go through the whole course in one sitting.
FB Commission Formula is a video course and you’ll find multiple videos in each module:
The videos are no longer than 10 minutes each, which was a smart way to break them up. Mario packs a lot of information into each video, but with this formatting it’s not as overwhelming as it would be with fewer, long training videos (say, an hour plus each).
I’d recommend taking notes because there’s a lot of great information given in these lessons. The majority of his videos are walkthroughs of tools and websites he uses throughout the process:
You’ll see the websites Mario uses to find products to promote, how to create bonus pages, along with live examples of bonus pages and a walkthrough of setting up Facebook ads.
That’s a hell of a lot of information for $17.
In the last lesson, after you’ve been shown how to create Facebook ads and how to set up a custom audience, you’ll find a webinar replay by Mario:
This is a 1.5 hour video where Mario walks through how effective ads can be in your business. Not only does he talk about Facebook ads, but he also goes through what banner ads on websites like FoxNews.com and Mashable.com can do for you. You’ll even see screenshots of campaigns he ran on the NY Times website.
At the end of that video, Mario promotes his FB Masterclass. This much higher priced course is where he goes into extreme detail on how to create and run effective Facebook ads:
However there’s no pressure from Mario to purchase the course.
Finally, there are a few bonus videos and downloads. The majority of these are Mario having a conversation with someone (one video is a conversation with Frank Kern) or of him speaking at a live event:
As you can see there’s a lot of information here for the low price of $17. I really love the advice Mario gives throughout the course. For example, when he talks about finding a product to promote, you should check out what tools the vendor provides their affiliates. Most of them will provide email swipe files, suggesting you send them to your email list.
Mario strongly recommends you don’t use them. He says they’re usually pretty crappy and that you should write to your email list using your own voice. You should know what they like and what they don’t like… You know what’s effective, but the person that created these swipe files DOES NOT. I completely agree with Mario on this.
You want to look after the people on your list and not send them crappy promotional emails. How does it reflect on you if you sent the exact same message they received from 2-3 other people, all because you couldn’t be bothered to write the email yourself? You’re going to look stupid and potentially lose the credibility and respect of the people on your list.
I really like this product. I would definitely purchase it if I were a complete beginner to the idea of promoting affiliate products on Facebook. If you’ve dabbled with Facebook ads already, FB Commission Formula definitely is not for you. This is a crash course on the very basics of Facebook ads.
Mario is going to offer you two upsells if you purchase the product. One is $37 and the other is $67, and I wouldn’t bother with either. If you’re brand new to the idea of using Facebook ads, the $17 course is more than enough information to get started.
We offer a number of free courses here at StoppingScams that you might also be interested in. None of them are directly related to Facebook advertising, but they do cover multiple ways to build, get traffic to, and monetize your internet business. Here’s how they compare to FB Commission Formula:
