Profit League by Jeff Samis and his wife Jessica is a course / community that shows you how to make money online with lead generation for small businesses using Facebook ads.
Today we’ll review this business model, pros & cons, and whether its still viable in 2019.
Let’s first take a look at what this course entails.
And how it differs from what I do which is local lead generation using 100% free organic traffic. Peep here for more info on that.
Profit League Course Overview
You will be using Clickfunnels ($97 per month) to build funnel pages like this for small businesses…
Run Facebook ads to it…
But not just any ad, you must create an ad with great picture and ad copy that stops traffic in its tracks and get them to click through.
The challenge with Facebook ads is if your CTR (Click thorugh rate) is not high enough, you can end up losing money on the ads.
More often than not, you also need a paying customer FIRST before you can begin running these ads, unless you got some $$$ to throw around to test ads on your own.
The big advantage of this business model is that as long as you got a customer credit card in hand, you can set up ads within a day and begin generating traffic from day 1.
What else is included with Profit League?
- 2 live weekly coaching calls where you can ask questions
- 20+ FB ad campaigns that students can model after / or use
- sales / email scripts you can use to go close new clients
- obviously how to use Facebook ads effectively and convert that traffic by using Clickfunnels for funnel landing pages (email optins) and then building an email marketing campaign for your leads
The X Factor?
You gotta be good at sales with this one or at least have the inkling to want to get good at sales, because you will need small business owners to invest / take a chance on you to run Facebook ads for them.
Is Profit League Legit?
I think Jeff & Jessica Samis are great people, bringing tremendous value to the world by showing people an another way at life.
Making money from the internet and being able to work from home without going to your typical 9 to 5 job is life changing in so many ways.
Freedom is priceless, and the ability to continually increase your monthly income is what I truly love about being an entrepreneur.
Jess & Jessica know what they are talking about when it comes to Facebook ads.
I’ve also ran tens of thousand of dollars on Facebook ads.
So I know what I’m looking at. Jeff & Jessica Samis course when it comes to running FB ads is legit.
In 2019 and going forward though, I’ve decided to double down and focus on generating my online business with free traffic only.
Challenges I Faced with Facebook Ads
- Ad performance fluctuates from day to day
- Ads eventually “fizzle out” and become unprofitable, so you do have to do quite a bit of on-going maintenance to make sure you’re not losing money
- the difficulty in trying to close a client upfront (how can they trust you?)
- Its interruption marketing, so the lead quality can sometimes be poor
- Less profit margin because ad cost can be pretty high
I’m at a point in my online career where its all about how you make the money and I want my online business to run as hands free as possible.
Which means free traffic by being able to rank sites like this blog or my 100+ local lead generation sites I have out there. Here’s one of my sites that’s been making me $750 per month since 2014. I haven’t touched this site since 2014.
With Facebook ads, you do have to continually watch over their performance (daily sometimes) in order to make sure your ads are actually converting & brining in profit for yourself & your client instead of losing money.
Sometimes the ad performance can fluctuate greatly from day to day and suddenly the CTR drops significantly because of ad exhaustion so you have to create new ads / change targeting, or pause ads, etc.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had great months with Facebook ads before but the real trick is how consistently can you rake in profits with Facebook ads. When you niche down you will eventually exhaust your audience with your ads.
To me that’s when the real game/challenge begins.
In my experience, coaching programs still do pretty well with Facebook ads because the profit margin is very high and pool of audience that’s looking for online business opportunity is a very massive one. Which is why you see so many coaches on Facebook trying to sell courses. (except us)
However if I’m trying to make money by servicing local clients, I stick to do lead generation with free traffic instead of paid. Just much less hassle.
Most Facebook ads people only get paid management fee of like 10-20% for running Facebook ads because the biz owner is already paying for every click. There’s not much room there in the profit margins for you to get paid any decent amount of income from 1 client.
Why I love doing lead generation with free traffic
I made $50K last month (Expense $5K, so my take home profit was $45K) with lead generation using free traffic, did not run any Facebook ads, and I’ll make that same amount next month or more without having to worry or fiddle with any ads which gives me that great time freedom.
The initial setup takes longer but once my lead gen sites are ranked its gonna perform great for years to come with very little to no maintenance, its pretty much 100% passive income from there on.
Because its free traffic & you aren’t paying for ads, you can make more money with less clients.
Also my clients stick with me long term because I own all of my lead generation websites, so if they do, I can easily choose to send the leads to their competitor. They def don’t want that to happen so they’re going to pay up each and every month. I have clients that I haven’t talked to in almost 3 years still paying me each and every month.
Since we own these properties at the top of Google
We get paid monthly from our clients. Because we rent these properties out.
