In addition to these ready-to-view trainings, Kevin also offers live, members-only trainings every month.
You can sign up to a strategy call where Kevin will help you with your marketing idea. There is also a Facebook VIP Group that members can join.
Best of all, Kevin offers potential members the opportunity to check out his program for 7 days for just $1. After the 7 days are up, a $27 monthly fee is assessed.
Because the program cost only $1 to try and offered a 30-day money back guarantee, I decided to spend exactly $1 and find out what was offered.
As soon as my payment went through, I found Kevin offering me the following upgrade:
For $197, I could have unlimited membership in IM VIP Training and forego paying those monthly $27 fees. I clicked out of this offer and had to return to JVZoo to locate my product again. Once back inside IM VIP Training, I saw the following:
When I scrolled down this page, I encountered Kevin’s previously introduced IM parts. For example, here is Part 1: IM Newbie, which is actually broken down into 6 modules of its own and totals 35 separate videos (each video ranging 10-15 min).
Due to the sheer volume of material in just this single module, I picked out one or two videos to peruse. I decided to go with the very first video in the first module, Purchasing Your Domain & Hosting. Here, Kevin spends just over 11 minutes providing step-by-step instructions on how to purchase a domain name and web hosting. He also adds details such as which hosting company to use, which name to input into the domain info, one easy trick to avoid getting your site hacked, etc.
Overall, I found this video very thorough and informative. A newbie would certainly benefit from the in-depth information provided here.
In the List Building video of IM Newbie, Kevin demonstrates how to generate a sales page. Here, he spends over 19 minutes going through the details of purchasing an email subscription service (e.g., AWeber), building the sales page, and tracking opt-ins.
Another part of IM VIP Training is Email Traffic. Here, I came across 14+ narrated videos where timed strategies are outlined. These strategies can be used to garner the interest of your readers and then profit from their interest. Audience segmentation is discussed at length.
What about other areas of Kevin’s training?
In Part 8: Product Creation, I located at least 15 informative videos, plus 8 additional resources on subjects like how to run affiliate contests, close high value leads (such as for coaching programs), and get involved with JV Facebook groups. The screenshot below highlights just a portion of this training area:
Other IM VIP Training benefits
Kevin offers much more in his training area than just videos. He is actively involved in the community and offers at least one in-depth strategy call for his members. There is also the Facebook Mastermind group, which boasts 80+ members:
What I like about IM VIP Training
In summary, what I really like about this program is that it actually offers useful, actionable training and materials. You can ask for help directly from Kevin or fellow Mastermind group members. And if you no longer need this program, you can easily cancel out of the recurring membership.
What IM VIP Training could do better
As I went through the various videos included in this program, I got a feeling that some of them were in draft form and needed improvement on content and length. There were some recent edits, such as the changing of the Advanced Facebook training portion into individual case studies, that were not accounted for. Overall, however, these deficiencies were not critical issues.
I liked the fact that Kevin had a Facebook Mastermind group for members who may require extra help or have questions not covered by his training. A good opportunity for improvement here would be to have an actual users’ forum not subject to Facebook’s rules or ’eminent domain’ reality.
For a newbie or even advanced marketer trying to learn about IM and find new revenue streams, IM VIP Training is a good investment.
