And how can it help YOU?
In this blog post I will explain exactly what is Project Breakthrough and how it may help you, but I will also explain the one thing that probably no-one else will tell you about it…..I’m going to share my results AND I’m going to make some very honest recommendations for you about this – You will not get a more honest review than this one.
So firstly what is Project Breakthrough all about?
Project Breakthrough is the brand new brainchild from the two powerhouses of the dotcom space Jason McClain and Vick Strizheus, both self made millionaires and both from very humble beginnings.
Their combined knowledge of how to make money online would impress even the very sceptical and their results are stacked with proof. So this is impressive, but how can they help YOU and why is Project Breakthrough any different to any other “how to” program out there?
The “WHY” behind ‘Project Breakthrough‘
Jason McClain and Vick Strizheus recently partnered up in what was Vick’s own business called ‘The High Traffic Academy” which had always been a training portal for those wishing to learn how to stand out online and be able to generate traffic and leads at will for any product or business.
With both their humble beginnings – Vick in particular has never forgotten the early struggle. His story is a little scary to say the least….borrowing over $30k from a friend to start his online business because he was convinced that he could provide a better life for him and his wife and their growing family. His friend remortaged his house because he trusted that Vick was a man of his word and that he could make it work so he lent him the money for a period of 3 months. Two and half months later and $29,500 all spent on traffic with zero returns…..and Vick was left with a dilemma on what to do to be able to pay his friend back.
So what would you do?
If you are like the vast amount of the population you would probably run back to a job and promise to pay back the money in installments.
But not Vick!
He knew that it would take him years to pay the money back if he went back to a job. So he spent the last $500 on hiring a mentor to show him what to do. Someone who he could see was absolutely crushing it online.
And here’s the important part.
He did everything that he was told to do without questioning it. (So he was totally “coachable”). He bought the ‘tools’ that were required to build a successful business exactly as he was told to…..he did the mindset and reading that his mentor insisted on him doing…..and he followed every single instruction that he was told to do to a “T’.
He made $30,000 that very same month and was able to pay back the money to his friend.
Now there is an important message in there for anyone incase you missed it.
If you follow the path of someone who has already paved the way for you – then it will dramatically reduce the time it will take for you to make a success of what you are trying to do. BUT you need to invest in yourself, your business and your mindset in order to achieve success in all aspects of your life. And this is very important and is the foundation of the reason for the creation of “Project Breakthrough”.
What is Project Breakthrough?
So Project Breakthrough is a 14 day step by step training course that literally teaches you how to earn an income online and I have never seen anything quite like this online before. The main focus is on ‘affiliate’ marketing which is widely considered to be the easiest way to get started online as the product is created by someone else and there are very few costs to get started.
Their goal is to:
1) help you earn a commission online (REAL money) – even if you have never made a dime online before
2) Understand how to do it over and over again so you never have to “depend” on anybody or anything ever again and can take control of your future and write your own ticket.
On day 1 of the training you are introduced to a young couple called Chris and Mark who (we are told) are complete “newbies” to internet marketing. You are then able to watch Vick and Jason coach them on exactly what to do step by step. You will see why so many other people fail to make money online and you will see why you need to do things in a certain way to stand out and appeal to the mass market. Commissions become easy…once you know why people buy and how to get that offer in front of them.
And of course generating traffic is easy when you have the two powerhouses to show you.
So what makes Project Breakthrough different?
What makes Project Breakthough different is that Jason and Vick go through incredible detail – literally taking you by the hand to show you and explain to you what to do and why you need to do it. They show you exactly what to do to make your first commission online, how to test, tweak and then scale up dramatically to earn a full time income from your laptop.
But the real difference is the marketing funnel that they are showing you that is revealed in the day 4 training. They literally explain what you are going through as you are being taken through the training. So simply put – you are the “product” as you go through the training.
What others won’t be telling you!
So I explained the “WHY” that Vick and Jason had for creating this program in an earlier paragraph. They want to be able to help more people – the people who are prepared to work hard to achieve their dream life, but who (on their own) would really struggle to achieve it.
But at the same time…they have created a marketing funnel designed to make money. (Which is of course the function of any marketing funnel!). And as a person who is being taken through the training you will be told of the inexpensive tools that you will need in order to be able to run your business. Now I won’t go into all of them…but things like a domain name and some hosting and an autoresponder. Simple, low cost, but nonetheless essential tools if you are serious about building a business online. And of course with each one of these it is possible to sign up as an affiliate and earn commissions from the sale of those tools.
And these affiliate links are embedded into the training, so that the person who referred you to the training has already set this up and will generate some commissions from these sales.
But the biggest surprise comes in day 4 when he explains exactly what is going on – i.e that YOU are being taken through a process whereby you can either just watch and learn OR that you can also become a member of High Traffic Academy Elite and promote the marketing funnel that you are going through yourself and then take others through the process too.
And as it is FREE to promote….then this would seem like a no-brainer – except that Elite Membership of High Traffic Academy currently costs $297 a month if you want to benefit from all of the embedded affiliate links and any subsequent product sales. (You can, however still promote it if you just want to earn a simple $1.50 referral commission for each new free registered account and I will show you exactly how to do that in an email if you register for your own free account using my link below!)
BUT……here’s the thing ……
This free training is attracting a LOT of attention and because of that, it will almost certainly attract people who think they are going to earn money from doing absolutely nothing and without any investment in themselves or in a business. And I’m afraid that if that is your mentality, then you should probably stick to being an employee rather than a business owner. (Harsh….sorry, but it’s true!!).
The fact is….If you want to build any sort of business online then you will need certain “tools” to do so – AND…..if you want to be successful online in a very competitive market, then training and mentoring from someone who has trodden that path before you and made a success, is the quickest way to end up in profit. There are way too many “wannabe” marketers out there prepared to sell you information that flat out doesn’t work any more.
What Vick and Jason have created is the absolute blueprint to being able to earn your first commission online, to understand what it is you have done and why, and then to scale it massively so that you can promote any product or service online. But you will need to learn some traffic strategies too.
It is quite simply the best training that I have ever seen all in one place – and for FREE and that is my genuine opinion – BUT (and it’s a very BIG but….) please read on where I share my results and the one thing that others who are promoting this definitely won’t be telling you!
So….back to the funnel. Well there is an even bigger surprise at the end of the training too as the science of generating ‘residual’ commissions is explained and an offer of how to generate those residual commissions is revealed.
But let me shae with you what MY results have been so far when promoting Project Breakthrough.
Project Breakthrough Review – My Experience – Be Warned!!
As a marketer who has built 2 separate online businesses to 5-figure monthly incomes whilst being a Mum and also having a part time job – I knew that whatever I was promoting – I had to believe in it 100% and there had to be a good training system there to support my team. After giving up my job in 2015 to focus on my business – sadly both the Companies I had built my business with changed direction and I no longer felt aligned to them and what they were doing and my team members started to struggle.
I started looking around for something that I could feel good about promoting again as I love the power of residual income – but only when everything is aligned to my standards and matches my integrity. But to find a Company that pays high commissions (why would you want low commissions for the same work?) , a Company that is ethical and rewarding with a good training structure was proving very difficult to find.
I was already a member of the High Traffic Academy and I watched what Vick was doing.
When I heard about Project Breakthrough I thought that this was going to be good. Especially with the initial tests they ran prior to release showed the sort of income that could be earned promoting something that was designed to help people – well it looked very good indeed.
Vick had “forecasted” the following statistics that could be obtained for us as marketers to achieve from promoting Project Breakthrough.
To summarise the figures above – His forecast was based on 1000 Visitors a month to the Project Breakthrough page which would be 33 people a day of which 20% would opt in and start going through the training (200 people). This would give a return of $300 immediately to the person promoting the programme as they pay out $1.50 on a FREE registration.
20% of those 200 people would reach the end of the 14 days – so that’s 40 people.
50% of those 40 people would buy some of the tools along the way – so that’s 20 people with an average of the figures shown above to equal approximately $760.
And then at the end of the 14 days some “traffic” training bundles are offered and it was forecasted that 15% of those same 40 people would buy something so that’s 6 people at an average of $400 = $2,400.
So if you just look at those figures alone – from a marketers perspective it looked like a pretty good training to promote. Especially as I knew the course would be exceptionally good.
So I was happy to put my name to this and promote to my list and do some paid advertising.
So at the very early stages when we were only into the first 5 days of the progamme it would indicate that their estimates on projected income were conservative……they forecasted a conversion rate of people who looked at the page to actually registering for an account to be around 20% and as you can see from my picture below mine was initially running at an average of 36% – so the signs were good.
But at the end of the 14 days my stats suddenly did not look anything like what was originally forecasted and I had driven a lot MORE traffic than a thousand visitors.
So I paid for 1600 high quality clicks to this….I had my own video and my own blog post ranking and was doing some Facebook marketing also. I had invited my list to take a look and yet the conversions to actually registering for an account ended up well down when you take into account the capture page on the front end.
So that aside…..how did the conversions to product bundles and tools convert?
Well I had two cheques from one of the tools companies totaling $98 NOT shown on this final summary – but as you can see only 1 person from the (at least 2000) people I referred to the Project Breakthrough course actually bought a product – and even then it was the lowest package available.
So a total ad spend of $1500 – gave a return of approximately $700.
NOT A GOOD RETURN ON INVESTMENT!
Project Breakthrough Review – My Verdict
If you are looking to earn an additional income online or if you are looking to replace your current income – then after going through this program, I would now say that I would NOT recommend it unless you just go through and take the information ONLY.
My advice is NOT to become a member of HTA Elite and NOT to promote this as an affiliate.
I still stand by my judgement that this is some of the BEST training out there for free and if you take what you learn here and apply it to an affiliate marketing business model then you will be way ahead of your competition.
From a marketing perspective – if you are looking to promote Project Breakthrough yourself as they suggest in the training then you will be required to join High Traffic Academy Elite membership which is currently $297 a month. This includes your “free” capture page software and some basic level training inside of HTA. You can then set up your affiliate links and promote Project Breakthrough.
But my advice is……don’t.
Because my stats have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that this does NOT give a return on investment and has fallen a long way short of the forecasted targets.
I have had a lot of success online, but I am no “guru”. So I asked some other marketers who I knew were good, and I knew who were also promoting this as I was slightly surprised by my results.
And their results were not even as good as mine……..
So I went to a top marketer who had reputedly earned thousands of dollars from this (and a previous) funnel. But the return on investment still did NOT justify the cost of the traffic.
So I am no longer promoting this.
But here’s the thing…..
The one thing I am ALWAYS being asked is if I can coach people from scratch on how to build a successful business online. So I have always been on the lookout for a program that could do this as it is too time consuming to coach individuals from scratch when you are building your own business.
Now this year…I have been delighted to see that there are 2 brand new programs just released to do this exact thing. i.e coach someone from scratch on how to build a successful business online, so I did a through bit of investigation on both of them.
And without a shadow of a doubt – THIS is the one I recommend.
Because it’s giving me a much better return on investment than Project Breakthough.
