COMMISSION HERO REVIEW
Robby Blanchard’s Commission Hero
Review & Test Results…
I recently purchased the Commission Hero training course by Robby Blanchard and put it to the test to see if the course material lived up to the hype. Below you will find the results of my test and my thoughts on the program.
By Brock Hamilton | Last Updated January 12, 2020
Robby Blanchard was named by Clickbank as the winner of their clickbank affiliate competition for January 2019 as their highest earning affiliate. Below is a 13 minute interview he did at ClickBank Headquarters when he won the competition followed by my Commission Hero Review and results from my testing.
Commission Hero Review & Test Results
Hi, Brock Hamilton here, Today I am going to share with you something that I think is pretty cool, and could have a massive effect on your life. I am going to review the Commission Hero training course, by Robby Blanchard.
And I am going to show you the results I personally got when I put the course to the test.
See, unlike a lot of other reviews you see around, I don’t review something unless I actually bought it myself, and tested it myself and today I am going to share the results of my testing with you.
So if you want to know if the Commission Hero system is a legitimate way to build an affiliate business, and if it is possible for a normal person to use it to make a full time income, then stay tuned, you are in the right place.
There are 3 Questions I always try to answer when I am considering buying a course:
1: Does the system work?
2: Can it work for Me?
3: Should I buy the course?
Why Are These Questions Important?
Look, there are a lot of courses out there, promising you the world, riches beyond your wildest dreams at the push of a button. I am sure you have seen your fair share of these products and courses aimed at affiliate marketers. A lot of them are just complete BS sold by people who have no idea what they are talking about and have no business putting out a course.
Then there are a lot of courses that teach methods that worked 2 or 5 or 10 years ago, but no longer do.
And A lot of them are just rehashed content from other courses but have not actually been tested or successfully run.
But then there are some courses, that do exactly what they promise. These are the only ones I am interested in buying and learning from. So before you buy any course, you need to figure out if its legit, and if its worth your time, energy and money.
Secondly, it’s important to decide if this is something that can work for you. We are all different, have different needs, personalities and time restraints and budgets. So a business model that suits one person, doesn’t always suit everyone.
so we will take a look at who this course is suitable for, and who would be better off doing something else.
And finally, should you invest in this course?
Ultimately, This is a question that only you can answer, but I can give you a few pointers to make that decision an easier one.
Who Am I, Should You Listen To Me?
Before we get into it, I just wanted to quickly tell you who I am. I don’t want to spend a lot of time on this, but I think its important for you to know where I am coming from with my review and if you should even listen to what I have to say.
So I started internet marketing about 18 years ago, in 2001, before most people even knew what the internet was. Before that I ran a local Bakery, getting up at 2am to bake bread every day.
I figured out how to build an affiliate website, and run google ads, SEO and other traffic methods.
Over the years, I have done a bunch of stuff, from building websites for clients, running google pay per click, lead generation for stock brokers and real estate agents and built a bunch of my own websites.
I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in the 18 years since I’ve had a real job, but the best money I have ever made has always come from Affiliate marketing.
The reason Affiliate Marketing is so lucrative is because it’s a pay per performance business model. You only earn a commission when you make a sale, or sometimes generate a lead, and you are free to make as many sales as you can, which means you are free to earn an unlimited income.
One site I built a few years back, started making about $50k a month from various affiliate programs, and after about a year of running that site, I was approached by a guy who wanted to buy it off me for 1M dollars, which I happily agreed to.
After that I built another site in a different niche, and got it up to 100k a month in affiliate revenue.
But that one didn’t last too long, see the traffic was based on SEO, and before long Google penalized it, and my income went from 100k a month to zero. Which sucked, big time.
Then I moved on to Amazon, selling physical products, where along with a few other guys, we managed to sell about 7M worth of stuff on amazon. But with Amazon keeping more than 4M of that in fees, then having to pay the manufactures for the products, and with more and more people selling on Amazon, our margins just kept getting thinner and thinner.
So when I came across Robby Blanchards, Commission Hero course, it caught my eye. He was claiming to be the #1 Affiliate on Clickbank, and I had been wanting to get back into affiliate marketing for a while, so it seemed to be the obvious choice to figure out what’s working today.
I signed up for his webinar and was pretty impressed with this results.
Who Is Robby Blanchard?
in the webinar, Robby Claims to be the #1 Affiliate on Clickbank. The full story is that back in Jan or of this year (2019) Clickbank held a kind of leaderboard competition to see who could do the most sales in that month.
Robby won the competition, and for that month at least, was ClickBanks highest earning affiliate. You can verify that (as I did) on clickbanks website, they have posted a few articles and interviews with Robby talking about this if you want to check it out yourself.
Robby actually went on to generate over 1Million dollars in sales, for 2 months in a row. Now obviously those are gross sales figures, not profit. In the course robby teaches you how to run facebook ads to generate these commissions, so there are obviously advertising costs required to generate over 1 Million Dollars in a month.
But we will get into that in a bit.
So, with that, I decided to jump in, and I purchased the Commission Hero course, paid in full.
What Is Commission Hero?
There are 2 main aspects to the course, the first is obviously the training videos, which you get access to, there is about 45 videos all up, that will take you from a complete beginner, to fully understanding the business model and how to run to for yourself.
Robby takes you step by step through the process of setting up your Facebook Account, building landing pages, getting images, and writing ad copy and running facebook ads to your landing pages in order to generate commissions as a clickbank affiliate.
It’s a complete walk through of the system, and I found it very easy to follow.
There are also a lot of complete beginners inside the course, who are making their first ever online commissions, so the course caters to everyone from the complete beginner, even up to the guy whos been around doing this stuff for almost 20 years.
The second aspect of the course is the Support that Robby offers all his clients. There is a Facebook group, which right now stands at almost 1,400 members, whicih is a place where you can talk to others who are doing the course, and ask any questions you have as you go through the course materials, and start running your business.
Robby himself is always in the group, answering questions and offering his guidance and advice, but so too are a bunch of other like minded people going through the same course you are, asking the same questions you will have.
I am actually quite surprised by the amount of time that Robby spends inside this support group answering questions, most of your questions will be answered within an hour, sometimes even within a few minutes of you asking. It really is a great support system.
Here Are My Results
So I purchased the course back in July, on the 26th to be exact.
It took me about a week to go through the course and start getting things setup.
Robby shows you how to setup your facebook ads account, and suggests you spend a couple of weeks warming up your account, before you start running the actual ads.
So in the first couple of weeks in August, I spent a couple of hundred dollars warming up my account. At this point we are not yet even trying to earn commissions, we are just getting setup, building our landing page and getting ready to run paid traffic though facebook advertising.
After warming up my accounts, I started to run some small $20 a day ads directing paid traffic back to the Clickbank offers using the landing page that Robby Recommends we promote.
By the end of August, I had spent a total of $2,547 on Facebook ads.
And in that same time period I had generated $1,947 in affiliate sales.
First Month Results & Summary
August 2019: Total Adspend: $2,547, Sales Generated: $1,947, Refunds: $170 = $770 Learning Expense
Now all clickbank offers have a refund window, so you do need to take refunds into account, and that month I had $170 worth of refunds, leaving me with $1,776 in commissions off a $2,547 adspend.
At this point, I should mention that I made a few mistakes early on, and I probably wasted a few hundred dollars in adspend by not following Robby’s advise to the letter, that was my mistake, but let’s be honest, we all make mistakes every now and then.
Now, these figures may not look great, but at least you know I am being 100% transparent with you in this review, you can see my screenshots, and you can see that I am showing you my results from the course.
Taking a $700 or $800 loss in your first month is probably not ideal, but we are building a real business here, something that will support my family for years to come.
It will take some time to figure this stuff out, and it will take some commitment, both mentally and financially. As we all know, there is no such thing as instant riches, if you want to make this work you need to put in the effort to get to success.
So in total I spent $3,571 on Facebook ads for the month of September.
And I generated a total of $3815 in affiliate sales so I kinda made a profit, but then remember we need to factor in the refunds, which came to a total of $686 this month.
Leaving me with $3,129 in commissions from an adspend of $3,571
September Results & Summary
September 2019: Total Adspend: $3,571, Sales Generated: $3,815, Refunds: $686 = $442 Learning Expense
So again, I lost a few hundred dollars this month, not a great result, but also not the end of the world, remember we are learning a new business, to expect to be profitable from day 1, is just unrealistic.
We are also seasoning our Facebook Pixel with all these sales.
For those of you who don’t know what I mean by that, the power of facebooks advertising platform is its pixel. You see when you setup your account you will get a little bit of code from facebook and you will ask the product owners we are promoting to ad your code to their thank you page.
What this does, its let’s facebook see who bought the product, so everytime someone buys it, facebook will be able to see who bought it, and will be able to analyse the data they get from that pixel.
Over time the more sales you get, the better Facebook will be able to predict who else will want to buy that particular product. And they will start to show your ads only to popele who fit this profile.
Now, if all this sounds really complicated, trust me, its not, it all happens behind the sceens, and the course will show you step by step how to set it up.
So anyway, getting back to my results.
By the end of September, I had generated about 145 sales so my pixel was starting to get a better idea of who it should be sending ads to.
So at this point. (Just like Robby shows you in the course) I created a new set of ads, that were less reliant on my own targeting choices, and more reliant on Facebook’s Pixel being able to choose who it shows my ads to.
This is where the real power of this system starts to work for you, and why I was happy to spend a bit of money in those first couple of months in order to gather the data that I needed.
So In October I created my new ads with less targeting, leaving it up to Facebook to use my pixel data to run my ads for me.
In the first week of October, I spent a total of $292 on these new ads and generated $503 in sales (after refunds)
So I had my first profitable week, and made $200 profit.
The next week I scaled my ads up a bit, just like Robby shows you in the course.
And I spent a total of $910 on ads, and generated $2,073 (after refunds) in commissions.
This week, I made a total of $1,163 Profit.
So the power of Facebooks Pixel was really starting to work at this point. (just like Robby said it would)
Week 3 of October, I continued to scale, I showed Robby what I was doing (in the support group) and he offerd a few tips which I followed.
So this week, I spent a total of $1,574 on ads, and generated $3,632 in Commissions.
That’s a total profit of $2,058 for this week.
I also did my first $1k day on the 17th of this month, I actually hit $1,089.75 in sales that day.
As a reward for hitting $1k a day, Robby actually sends you out a Commission Hero hat as a symbol of your new found Hero status, so that’s a nice way to recognize the success your are having. The money hitting your bank account is also very nice.
So the 4th week of October (22nd to 28th) I spent a total of $2,112 on ads and generated $4,920 in commissions
For a total profit of $2,808 for the week.
I had my second $1k day on the 27th of October, and then on the 28th, I actually did my first $1k Profit in a single day.
On the 28th I spent a total of $372 on ads, and generated 1486 in commissions giving me a total profit of $1,114 for that day.
Now that was a single day, but as I continue to scale, I am sure I will see more and more of these days.
There we are few more days in October, so my total October stats looked like this:
My total Adspend for October was $5,811
And the total sales generated for October was $14,353
October Results & Summary
October 2019: Total Adspend: $5,811, Sales Generated: $14,228, Refunds: $1,222 = $7,195 Profit
So at $7,195 profit in my third month, it more than covers the losses I took in the first 2 months, and has set me up to continue making good money going forward.
Based on the last two weeks, I earned an average of around $2400 a week profit.
So even if I decided not to scale this up even more, and just maintained were I am at now, I could reasonably expect to make about $120k a year from this campaign.
Obviously I want to make more than that, in fact my goal with this system is to scale it until I am making at least $10k a week, but this first 3 months has proven to me, without a shadow of a doubt, that the system works.
November Results & Summary
Quick update on how things have progressed with the Commission Hero course. November 2019 I spent a total of $15,269 on Facebook ads:
And generated a total of $31,724 in sales commissions. It was a great month for sales, but I did get a fair few refunds this month, and I also probably let a few of my ad campaigns run at a loss “hoping they would come back” instead of just killing them and creating new ones. But it’s all a learning process and I am still pretty happy with $9k profit.
November 2019: Total Adspend: $15,269, Sales Generated: $31,724, Refunds: $4,683 = $11,772 Profit
December Results & Summary
Merry Christmas, December has been an interesting month, some great days, and some not so great days. The start of the month was going pretty well, but then a week or so before Christmas I had some ups and downs. Some great days, some break even days and even a couple of days where I lost some money.
The site I am promoting was actually hacked one day, so I had a really bad day that day.
I think a lot of people were more focused on buying Christmas presents than they were buying stuff for themselves. Which is understandable.
Overall though I can’t complain as it was still a great profitable month. I spent $17,920 in adspend for the month.
And generated a total of $31,434, with $2,102 in refunds
December 2019: Total Adspend: $17,923, Sales Generated: $31,434, Refunds: $2,102 = $11,409 Profit
So For Question 1: Does the System Work?
Next we need to decide if this business model is suitable for you, and I am going to be completely honest here, this course is definitely not for everyone. And I know, a lot of marketers say that, and yeah, its usually Bullshit. But in this case it’s the truth.
Who Is This Course Not For?
You saw in my results above that I spent about $2500 on ads in the first month, and only made $1947 back, effectively taking a loss over $500 in my first month.
Now, not everyone can stomach that kind of outlay to test a system. Hell, some people can’t handle risking money at all, they want to be profitable from day 1 or they throw in the towel.
So if this is you, then this course probably isn’t for you.
You will need to spend some money on ads, maybe not as much as I did, but you will certainly need an advertising budget.
Another thing to consider is the fact that when you advertise affiliate offers like this through Facebook, you do run the risk of having your facebook advertising account shutdown.
This is a fairly common problem that a lot of people run into when they start to use Facebooks ad platform. And in fact I had a facebook ad account of mine shut down a few years just for running ads to one of the products I was selling on Amazon.
It didn’t break any rules, or wasn’t in any way didgy, or scammy, but Facebook’s algorythum decided that my ad broke their terms of service, and so it automatically terminated my account.
Thank you very much, you’re done.
Now in the course, Robby addresses these concerns, and gives you instructions on both how to avoid account shutdowns, and how to recover if it does happen to you. (No, its not the end of the world) You can open new accounts and start again if you follow the advice in the course.
But if you are the type of person who can’t handle this type of bump in the road, then again, this course is probably not for you.
And finally, I touched on this before, but if you are one of those people who jumps from course to course, product to product, looking for that magic button that is going to make you a millionaire overnight. Then I am sorry, but you will not find that here (or anywhere for that mater)
The Reality Of Success
As you have seen with my results, it took me 3 months before I figured out how it all works and got my ads dialed in. Now I am sure there are people who have seen success faster than that, and I am sure there are others who will take longer.
But my point is, this is a real business, and it needs to be treated like one if you want to make it work long term.
I see way too many people why say they want an online business, give up at the first sight of a bit of hard work.
It baffles me to this day, you see these people work their 9 to 5 job, where they are 100% committed, they wake up early, get ready for work, then commute to the office, work their butts off all day, stay late, come home late, exhausted, and then do it all again the next day.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not knocking these people, they work hard, and their commitment and their work effort is commendable.
But they say they want a better life, they say they want to get out of the 5 to 9 grind.
Then when you give them a proven plan to follow, often they will put in an hour or two, here and there, when they have time.
Maybe spend a week on it.
But then when it doesn’t show instant profits, they throw it away, call it a scam, or say it doesn’t work, and then get up the next day and put in their 8 hours at their job again.
When the truth is, they don’t give their online business anywhere near the level of commitment that they give their 9 to 5 job. They expect instant success, and when they don’t get it, they just give up.
So who is this course for?
If you are an online marketer who has seen some success in the past and you are looking for another way to add to your income through Facebook, ClickBank and affiliate marketing, then you are probably the ideal person for this course.
If you are just starting out online, and you are fully committed to starting your online business and you are willing to spend the time to learn and implement the information in the course, then I personally can’t think of a better way to start. There are a ton of first timers within the Commission Hero support group, so you certainly won’t be alone.
And finally, if you are a student, or graduate, or even a retiree. As long as you are committed to putting in the time, (maybe a few months) working at least 1 hour a day on this, and you do have some funds to use for your ad budget, then this course is one of the best ways to get started making money online that I have seen in a long long time.
Question 2: Can It Work For You?
My Answer is: Well, that depends, I have explained what it takes to be successful with this business, and why its not for everyone, so it is up to you to decide if you have what it takes to make this business work.
You have seen the proof (above) that is does work, so the real question you have to ask yourself is:
How committed are you to making this work?
If your answer is anything less than a 10, then I suggest you don’t bother.
Question 3: Should you buy the course?
Again, that’s up to you, but from my experience (that I have shared with you on this page), it is 100% possible to make money with the methods taught in Commission Hero.
So, if you are interested in learning more, I suggest you watch the Free Training Webinar that Robby provides (links below) and get a feel for the model and for Robby’s teaching style. If you think it’s a good fit for what you are looking for then go for it. I did, and I am happy I did.
Am I Offering A Bonus?
Look we are all Affiliate Marketers here (and if you’re not, then you soon will be) so yes, if you click on the link above and purchase the course, then I will earn a commission.
Now a lot of people at this point, will throw in $74,000 worth of additional “Free Bonuses” if you buy through their link. But I think you are smart enough to know that most of those bonuses are a complete waste of time. (and are usually a bunch of old outdated courses they just paid $19 for reseller rights to).
So, I am going to offer you something a bit different.
Watch the webinar, and decide if this course is for you.
If it is, and you decide to purchase through my link, then I will give you 2 things:
1: Shoot me an email after you purchase, and I will send you my own personal “Cheat Sheet” to help you get started as fast as possible, and possibly even avoid a few of the mistakes I made. I will show you exactly how I setup my profitable campaigns, so you can just jump right in and use what is already working.
2: I will add you to my own personal Skype and/or Facebook contacts where you will be able to ask me questions and get my personal help getting things up and running. Don’t get me wrong, the support within the Commission Hero Facebook group is next level, but it never hurts to have someone who has been there, and done it to help you along the way.
So that’s my offer to you. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org once you purchase the course for your bonuses.
Ok, so that’s it for my commission hero review and how I am currently making money online.
If you have any questions, I will be monitoring this page and will answer then as best I can.
