Update: The training video discussed in this post has been pulled off line by the product owner for some reason. If it returns, I will add it here again. However, the review is still very helpful as it contains some great free resources for those who want to learn about online marketing for the purpose of making money, and eventually quitting the 9 to 5 rat race.
OMG is an educational program implemented through a membership website. What does OMG stand for? I am not sure…It might just simply be: Online Marketing Group or Online Mastermind Group/Genius etc.
It is apparently compiled by a cluster of the best of the best marketing gurus who have specific authoritative expertise in different niches. Some of them are experts at SEO. Others are experts at free traffic generation. Other fields of expertise at member’s fingertips include lead generation, paid traffic, social media marketing, video marketing etc. Connected to this membership is a private, closed Facebook group. I was able to get an acceptance into this group within a few minutes of attempting to join it (which I highly recommend).
Ok now let’s discuss the video content:
The video can be broken down into two segments: A training portion and a sales portion. This is not uncommon with most free marketing webinars that you come across in social media and other segments of the web. In fact, you should always anticipate that the presenters will be making “an offer” (i.e. try to sell you something). That’s it folks! So why am I taking time to write this review? As much as it was exciting and uplifting, the inspirational high drops you off rather quickly with a feeling of discouragement.
The training portion was cool!! It was actionable (meaning that you could implement it today and see some kind of results). It was all about how to get free traffic using YouTube. The presenter said he is an expert at paid traffic so he had a few “free traffic” gurus to contribute to the discussion. It was sensible and explained so that even the newest newbie could wrap their brain around it. It was somewhat short and left you wanting more. Especially in comparison to the amount of time that was spent encouraging the membership purchase. How was it pushed??? It was a gentle nudge that left you feeling like you just had to buy into their membership program. That is a sure-fire way to tell if a presentation was well-assembled. So A+ for that. They introduced their experts. They each had a chance to tell their rags-to-riches story and they were all reasonably conceivable. So you would feel like, “Damn!! If they can do this and make tons of money then I can do it too!!”….and rightfully you should. Many people asked the question, “Is it a good use of the viewer’s time?” Here is my opinion…
