I expect if you have been doing any research online about Network Marketing you will have undoubtedly run into the name ‘Jonathan Budd‘, its difficult not too!
He is literally everywhere! I have been doing a lot of keyword research recently on topics relating to the MLM industry and everytime he is there! Whether it’s paid adverts, organic search results or various ads on other peoples websites. There is no doubt that this guy knows EXACTLY what he is doing.
He is touted as the youngest MLM millionaire online entrepreneur of all time and I can quite believe it. However like a lot of us Network Marketers he didn’t have a particularly glamorous start in life. He began his career broke from the kitchen of his parents house a few years back, he used all of the traditional methods of offline team building (which do still work) but for one reason or another he didn’t have a great deal of success.
But somehow as if by magic a few years later he is earning over a million dollars each year and has created an entire online Network Marketing empire and several high class training courses. He has led many top earners in the industry to success; one you may have heard of is Katie Freiling, the top recruiter in Genewize.
Jonathan Budd talks about his success story to JP King of iMAP Academy. This is awesome! You will get some incredible value from hearing his story!
Is Jonathan Budd A Scam Artist?
The short answer is ‘No’ Any publicity that says he is will be written by someone who didn’t read his sales page properly and ended up being subscribed to his inner circle which costs $30-$40 per month. When you go through the first 2 pages of his system you will be offered the chance to buy ‘The Online MLM Secrets Mastery CD’ for $7 but you won’t be automatically upgraded to his inner circle. Unlike a similar deal developed by Matt Bacak a few years back where you would get a free CD and then be automatically be upgraded to the ‘inner circle’ membership.
With Jonathan’s system you would have to manually check a box on the form to receive the upgrade. But there were a few people who checked the box without realizing it and got charged $40 bucks per month unexpectedly and have been posting their ‘I’ve been scammed woes’ all over the internet ever since.
By the way, if you are wondering if you should buy his CD, go for it! There is some fantastic information on there and for a mere $7, just do it for the sake of it. I did and had no complaints whatsoever, although it won’t teach you everything you need to know by a long shot, it will point you in the general direction.
What other products has Jonathan Budd created?
The 7 Figure Network System – This is an online Attraction Marketing system designed to help ANYONE start generating their own leads online and branding themselves as leaders. Is it a good system? Yes. Would I use it myself? No. The reason for this is that I now use My Lead System Pro (read my review of it) and I much prefer it because I find it far more versatile when it comes to customizing it to me and adding my own unique content. Plus, it is much more search engine friendly which allows me to generate more free leads.
The Top Producer Formula – This is Jonathan’s ultimate training package where he reveals all of his strategies under one roof. It’s not always available for sale though, periodically he will release it for purchase so you need to keep your ear to the ground to grab a copy. This is a sales tactic used by many of the top Gurus, it creates a great ‘want’ and urgency to get the product, so when he does release it there’s a massive flood of buyers.
It’s worth buying this course, even if you are an experienced Network Marketer who is looking to maximise results online as you will most likely learn something new. For the newbie it will definitely shorten the learning curve by miles.
The Mastermind Mentoring, Coaching & Training Transformation Programme – I myself have never purchased this course as I already have my own mentors that I attribute much of my success to. But what I would say is that if you are looking to grow your business with online marketing then Jonathan Budd obviously knows more than what 99% of online marketers know. So if you can afford it, it would make a wise investment.
My final thoughts
I like Jonathan Budd, I think he is a nice guy and he has tremendous knowledge of the online arena. I wouldn’t see him as a guru in offline marketing though as he admitted himself he has failed in that area. It really depends on your personality if you are successful at building a team offline and if you feel comfortable doing meetings and speaking publicly. I myself don’t, so I build my business mostly online and use the telephone. But for anyone wanting to build a business online Jonathan Budd can show you the way…for a price though.
From what I’ve read Jonathan actually makes MUCH more money from his online system and coaching products than he does from his actual network marketing company, but then this is true of many of the Gurus out there.
If you are looking to prosper in your Network Marketing business then really you just need to learn and implement some simple strategies….it’s really not that difficult. I am giving away my training for free at the moment and showing Network Marketers around the globe how to solve their number one problem….a lack of prospects.
