One day Robby get stuck with the gym. He tried many ways to raise up the business, but all failed. Then he joined a Facebook Ad master-class, which is the first journey that attracted him to the power of social media advertising.

He think so.

Inside the Commission Hero Facebook Group

By joining Commission Hero, you have two accesses: Access to member area and access to Robby’s Facebook Group.

For me, the power of the course is actually much more on the group.

While you get some theories from the member area, you get the real practical implementations on the group, because inside the group you can learn much wider from the real cases asked by other members and answered by Robby.

The group is exclusively for people joined Commission Hero e-course only. No one will be approved to join the group without first join to the e-course.

When I first joined CH (about 3 months ago), CH group members was still around 3,000, but today when I write this post, the number increases to 6,155 members.

current commission hero group's members

This makes the group much more interactive as everyday we can see new members join, new questions asked, new testimonials, new videos by Robby and team, and also by some senior members.

Here are exactly what you’ll get from the CH group:

Units

There is Units section where Robby post some additional videos for intermediate and advanced lessons.

For example, one of the videos (which is shown below) is about analyzing your facebook ad campaign data. What number of CTR to expect, what number of CTR to kill, etc.

And many more videos including (but not limited):

  • Basic Walkthrough
  • 6 Weeks to Success On-Boarding
  • Live Campaign Build Workshop
  • Using Social Ad Scout
  • Warming Up your Ad Account

  • Success story (interview with successful members)
  • Interview with Facebook insider (exclusive)

and many more.

A lot of students testimonials

Since Robby encourage all members to respect and honor what you have earn by sharing your achievement on the group, I see a lot of students’ testimonials.

From small achievement (like $100 – $200 per day)…

The ones who have just hit the goal (1k daily)…

Motivational videos by Robby Blanchard

motivational videos by robby blanchard

About 2 – 3 times a month, Robby post a new motivational videos to encourage all members to spirit up, keep strong and never give up whatever it takes.

He also share an inspiring insight like how he was not worry with his business anymore during the Covid-19 pandemic, even his gyms must close during the lockdown. Because he has another business (affiliate marketing) which will still exist whatever the situation.

Tutorial video by other CH coaches

You will also see some posts which Robby’s coaches post videos of how they make profitable campaign from scratch in step-by-step like shown below:

Live Events (Scheduled)

facebook live events

About two times a month, you can join the live events by CH team where you can ask your questions (will be answered by Robby or other coach attended in the event) and get inspirations from other members’ questions. Mostly the event is about one hour length.

I suggest you to join the events even if you have nothing to ask to the coach, because the more frequent you join the events, the more case studies you could learn from.

Files

Inside the Files section, you will also get tens of useful files that you can use for your:

  • Campaign (ie: Campaign launch checklist, appeal template, power words, etc.).
  • Landing page (like Privacy Policy template, Terms of Use template, DMCA, etc.).
  • Fan page (ie: list of blocking words of comment, etc.).

Thing surprised me

What was surprising me from the group is, before I get into the group, I thought all questions (or most ones) will be answered by Robby’s team.

To be surprised, 90% of members’ questions are always answered by Robby Blanchard HIMSELF.

questions answered by robby blanchard himself

Here I can see how he really care to his students. I see every single day he is there and answering all questions one by one. This makes your study easier since you can learn and work with Top Super Affiliate sitting on your side and ready to help and solve every detail problem you have.

Another thing surprised me

Another thing that surprised me is, inside the group’s Files section, Robby share his customer audience list!

customer audience for custom audience and lookalike audience

You might can’t see yet the power of customer audience list – if you’re new to Facebook Custom Audience and Lookalike Audience.

But, for you who already known them, you know the real value of some customer audience list. Even only small list will value a lot. While Robby customer audience is over 2,200 customers!

Basically, you can use the customer audience to “command” Facebook to show your ad only to the persons with the same criteria to the audience. With this approach, you may expect of much higher conversion for your campaign.

Who should and should not join this e-course

Commission Hero e-course is NOT for everyone. After joined this e-course, I can say that this e-course is suit only for people with:

  • Ready budget of $200 to spend on Facebook Ad.
  • Good mentality to never give up when learning, testing and testing again.
  • Strong believe that you can achieve your goal ($1,000 a day Clickbank income).
  • Enough time to watch and learn from all the video materials (they will take about 10-14 days if you spend your time of 2-3 hours a day).
  • Positive mindset.

If you have a mental barrier (small motivation), you may still join the e-course as long as you would like to watch motivational videos and see other members’ testimonials.

There are so many posts inside the group as a testimonial contains the member’s daily earning, from small numbers (like $100 – $200 daily income) till the amazing ones with $5000 – $8000 daily.

But if you have no budget of $200 to spend on Facebook Ad, you should not join the e-course.

If you have no time to learn and you are expecting a shortcut like a get-rich-quick scheme, you should not join.

And, the last important thing, if you are people with negative mindset and no one can change your mindset, you should not join too.

What I like and dislike with the e-course

What I like:

  • As a super affiliate (and even the #1 top Clickbank affiliate), Robby is so humble and really care with his students. To be honest, I’ve joined a lot of Internet Marketing e-course lead by super affiliate, but I’ve never seen any course like this one which the owner spend his time every single day to answer all the questions. I even have no idea on how he managed his schedule to make it possible.
  • Unlike other Facebook Ad trainings which mostly use email marketing inside the strategy, Commission Hero’s method has nothing to do with email. Most other top affiliates said that you can’t make big money without building list first, but the fact Robby has sold over 3000 packs of Leptitox (current most popular weight-loss product in Clickbank) without sending even one email to his customers!
  • The customer audience lists shared by Robby and team that I mentioned above. I really love it. The list has helped many members who start from zero to hit the goal in a shorter time. I knew people advice you to teach a man to fish rather than give him a fish. But Robby gives you the way to fish and also the fishes for you to eat during your learning period, till you know exactly how to fish.
  • The way the method solve problem in paid traffic is gold! Since PPC cost is much more expensive these days comparing to 5-10 years ago, the method optimizes all factors to maximize profit . From inner factors like laser targeting audience, pre-sale the cold traffic, powerful psychology effect through Ad image and lander, closing with power words, till outer factors like requesting commission bump. Very powerful approach!
  • Unlike many other e-course on Clickbank which the money back guarantee is 30 days or up to 60 days, in CH you have 365 days to try the method. If after you learnt from all the videos inside the members area and the group, after you tried the method and launched your campaigns, you didn’t get any succeed, then during one week after the 365 days you may ask for refund.

What I dislike:

  • I can not ask my personal problem without post it to the group. All questions must be share on the group. I know it will be good and help other members by sharing it on group, but for me personally, sometime I need to share my personal problem that I don’t want to share to other members. Just a personal view of mine.
