I decided to do my next IM product review on Jeremy Schoemaker’s Shoe In Money system. Jeremy Schoemaker – at least according to the sales page – has been successful in Internet marketing for a long time. I’m hopeful I’ll learn a lot from him.
If you haven’t read one of my IM product reviews before, here’s how it works: I go through the course and implement what it teaches. I review as I go, giving my candid reactions to everything I find. If I like something, I’ll let you know. If I don’t like something, I’ll let you know that, too. At the end of the review, I’ll let you know if I recommend the product and if I have any reservations.
I do have an affiliate link that you can use if you’d like to follow along on the course. My policy is to approach every product in good faith – that it will fulfill its promises and be something I can recommend to my readers. If the product doesn’t live up to my standards, I’ll yank the affiliate link and let you know exactly what issues caused me not to recommend the course.
So, with everyone on the same page, let’s talk about Shoe In Money.
Shoe In Money Review: The Sales Page
The sales page starts with a video on auto-play. I hate that. It also doesn’t show how long it is – another minus. On the plus side, it looks professional. The guy on the video, who turns out to be Jeremy Schoemaker, is non-annoying. (Hey, it matters!)
He talks about his background some and then about the course. He says that it will be a “paint-by-numbers” course that teaches us how to make money online.
The course seems either designed for newbies (yay!) or at least newbie-friendly. He mentions not having a website yet, not even knowing what a niche is, etc. and that you can still succeed even if that’s your situation.
As I scroll down the sales page while listening to the video, I see that he’s basically reading word-for-word from the sales page. Why, dude, why? It’s kind of a long sales page … lots of graphics of money he’s earned, recognition he’s received during his time as an Internet marketer, etc. On the one hand, at least some of it could be Photoshopped. On the other hand, things like being named Most Influential marketer on the Internet by Fast Company magazine can be fact-checked (I checked, and he was).
Anyway, I feel like this course has potential, so I’m in.
Sometimes I buy OTOs, sometimes I don’t. In this case, the course itself seems like it’s going to be enough of a commitment to start out with. That said, the OTOs look good, especially the second one. I may come back to them later if they’re available.
Here’s what you get if you get the OTOs:
OTO 1 – A “made for you business” monthly subscription service. It looks like you’d get some already set up websites with a variety of content resources in a bunch of different niches. More would be added each month.
OTO 2 – A how-to-build-your-list course. Honestly, this one was very tempting. It looks like it has a lot of good information beyond just how to get email addresses. I’ll reassess whether I want it once I’ve done the main course and review it if I get it.
Once I get through the OTOs, I’m taken to a registration screen for the Members Area. I register and get instant access.
There’s a short (46 second) greeting video that kind of covers the same info as the sales page, followed by a written intro. The written intro promises to help you “discover your passion in online business, start creating killer content and build a website that will make you rich.” Sounds good.
The Member’s Area is nicely set up, with a top navigation menu that leads to the main sections and a right navigation menu that has each sub-section listed.
