Title: Video Ads Hacked
Creators: Brian Gonzales & James Renouf
The first thing that you will notice about Video Ads Hacked is how ugly the sales page is. However, you should not let that keep you from checking out this excellent and unique course. Haha James Renouf is known to have some of the most unorthodox marketing methods out there, and this is no exception.
This time around he has teamed up with a fairly new marketer named Brian Gonzales. Now, even though Brian is new to the product launch and affiliate marketing scene, it does not mean that he does not know what he is doing. He already has several students making huge income with CPA marketing including one guy earning $2K per week so he knows his stuff and how to teach it properly
My partner Stefan Ciancio actually met Brian at the recent JVZoo marketing event, and all 3 of us are working on something together in the CPA marketing space so be on the look out for that. Anyway, what I am going to review today is his new course with James Renouf titled Video Ads Hacked.
Video Ads Hacked Course Layout
The large majority of the main course is created by Brian Gonzalez. In true James Renouf fashion, the course is delivered in a very unconventional way.
After you purchase, you will receive just a PDF file. However, this is not a PDF course. Inside, the PDF course you will find links to videos where Brian teaches you his strategy. There are 26 videos total, but they are all short and to the point. Most are just a few minutes long. James writes some descriptions in the PDF, but all the main content is done by Brian in his videos.
There is no thank you page, members area, and no welcome email (at least none that landed in my inbox). Personally, I prefer to have a members area where it is much easier to navigate and I can bookmark the link and note down my login information as I usually do. The important thing is that all the content is there and in order.
High Quality Content
Once you get comfortable with going back and forth between a PDF and video links, you will find that the content of the course is really really good. Brian does an excellent job explaining what he does including his mindset and approach with his whole business. This is important because you can see not just how Brian sets everything up, but also why.
In-stream and In-display ads
These are the types of ads you run on YouTube. Brian shows you a neat and powerful method that allows you to run ads by using other people’s videos. That way you do not have to create your own. It is how he and his students have been killing it with YouTube ads. Most people think of YouTube marketing and automatically think that they have to be on camera and/or create their own videos. That is not the case here, and it is actually more efficient to do it the way Brian does.
Also, Brian does show you how he does very effective affiliate promos by doing interviews. He has built a 10K+ IM subscriber base without ever creating his own product (this is his very first one) so you can go that route if you want as well.
Creating High Converting Landing Pages
This is where most courses fail, but Brian does a great job teaching exactly how he creates high converting landing pages to send his ads to. After watching his videos, you will have the knowledge to set up your very own landing pages in just minutes. Really good teaching by Brian here.
Landing pages are essential if you want to succeed long term with practically any type of paid traffic, and Brian’s formula for effective landing page building is excellent.
Simple One Minute Tracking Set Up
If you do ANY kind of paid traffic, you NEED to be properly tracking your keywords/interests/whatever targeting options the ad platform works with. Usually, this is very intimidating and you would need to know a lot of technical stuff to set tracking up. However, Brian shows you how you can set up tracking with YouTube ads with just 1 minute of your time.
Retargeting & Scaling Up
Honestly, I was expecting a bit more in these sections, but it seems that Brian gives just a general overview. He presents the different types of retargeting options you have with YouTube ads, and they are awesome. However, he does not show any concrete examples of how he does it and in which situations. Same thing with scaling up a successful campaign. You can get a good idea of how to properly do these 2 things, but it would have been nice to see more in-depth teachings.
Brian and James have put together a very good course covering a traffic source that is not being taught on a wide scale right now. It is still very untapped, and Brian does an excellent job teaching exactly how he and his students use it to make up to $2K+ per week with CPA. You can also learn how to build a laser targeted subscriber base in the IM base without ever creating your own product just as Brian has.
OTO 1: Brian’s Advanced CPA Strategies + James’ YouTube Methods
This is the one OTO that I do recommend you pick up. While you can do extremely well with CPA using Brian’s teachings in the front end course, he goes much more in depth with more advanced CPA strategies such as funnels and email marketing. This will allow you to scale up more efficiently and be so much more profitable long term. Also included is how James built his presence on YouTube and a neat roadtrip video he made with Sam England
OTO 2: Community Mastermind
You can join James and Brian’s group specifically for this course where you can interact with the community. I do not personally know how they run this group or how high quality it is so I cannot give a recommendation on it.
OTO 3: 1 on 1 Session With Brian
I know how good of a teacher Brian is because I have seen many video testimonials from his students. Again, one of them is making $2K+ per week with CPA. So it can be a good idea to take advantage of this 1 on 1 session if you can.
