This is the most honest PPC Coach Review you’ll ever see. Trust me, this is the honest-to-god-truth, and there will be no hype, no lies, nothing of the sort…
This is my last reply about this guy and his site, period. I will not go any further with this, because I’m quite tired of it… but I’m also tired of hearing him run people’s names through the mud at any given chance, while he lies through his teeth.
I got started with PPC Coach back in August, 2008. I cancelled my membership about 45 days later when I heard that Ringtones were being taught, after I already noticed that everything else that was being taught was very outdated. Sure, Polls still make people money, but he’s using a copied method that went out of date many, many years ago. It’s like he ripped it straight out of a 2006 ebook.
I eventually went back just to give the guy a benefit of the doubt. Big mistake, obviously.
Ringtones? Really? Not to mention that the Polls method is the ONLY forum that’s even remotely active.
Here’s the thing… do you want to pay $40 a month to learn outdated Polls methods? Oh, you want to learn PPC? There’s a book by Howie Jacobson called Adwords for Dummies. It’s cheaper, and teaches you way more stuff than you’d ever learn about PPC at PPC Coach.
A lot of people question whether Will Haimerl even makes a living as an Affiliate Marketer. I won’t lie, I question that myself… he doesn’t seem to understand Affiliate Marketing, in general, and he’d rather build 20 different coaching sites, all of which he knows nothing about.
Media Buys Coach? Really? That’s his surprise for you people when September 15th hits. OUCH!
Rather than fix his currently outdated PPC Coaching site, he’d rather go off and angrily create competing sites.
See, here’s his mindset: If you sign up for his site, and then decide to create a site that might, for some way, shape or form, compete with any of his sites – you either invite him in as a partner (whether he knows anything about that stuff or not), or you’re banned from the site.
His words, not mine. Honest to god.
The guy has all of his oldest members questioning his every move, as he’s failing with his main venture, PPC Coach, yet going crazy trying to throw up new sites about topics he knows absolutely nothing about.
Media Buys? Seriously? SEO? The guy knows nothing about this, he just wants easy money, as usual. I feel sorry for Carl (DavBit), when I saw the news of this site yesterday. I was pretty shocked.
PPC Coach is full of some awesome people, many of whom have supported Chris and I in our new project, that was never started to compete with PPC Coach, nor was PPC coach ever even considered remotely close to what we had in mind.
See, PPC Coach is just what it is… old, outdated material, no training, no 1on1 support as it claims (he’ll charge you extra for that), and NOT newbie friendly.
This is not competition to us. We don’t go by “methods” … we teach Internet Marketing, not Basic PPC stuff, using old forms of money making methods.
Ringtones… I still laugh when I see it.
In Month 8-12, you’ll see there’s absolutely NOTHING going on in those forums. Nothing. Month 12 is a Mastermind thing… don’t ask, because there’s NOTHING in there!
Months 4-8? Dead, as you’d expect.
The moderators and members run that forum, and that’s how it will always be. Moderators don’t get paid, and he’ll make a thousand promises, but they will never actually be made into reality. Sad.
I hear that he recently banned another respected member (OscarKool), and then changed my username to “douchebag.” The irony, Fidel.
Fidel – that’s Will Haimerl’s new name. He truly believes he owns you once you sign up.
Speak up against it, even as a paying member? BANISHMENT or Public Ridicule! Trust me, this is NOT over reacting. Everybody has seen this, and very few speak up against it…if they do, they’ll be talked down to and/or banned.
Fidel doesn’t understand how to run a Business. He’s no Business man, and he never will be. His attitude is “Fuck you for not agreeing with me, and my shit don’t stink!”
I apologize for the language, but that’s exactly how he thinks. Believe me, we’ve spoken on many occasions, and he comes off as someone who thinks everyone else is wrong, ESPECIALLY customers.
I really wanted to post up visual evidence to show how disgustingly disrespectful this guy is, but for obvious reasons, I’ll hold them off for now.
Fidel really believes that Business is about being a Dictator. You are not allowed to speak up against him, you are not allowed to link to your own sites UNLESS ppc coach is the ONLY site you promote, and you cannot start a site that is anything related to teaching, UNLESS he gets a piece of that pie… it’s all about HIS benjamins, baby! “F#$k you for not agreeing!”
Recently, he’s made plenty of threats, called everybody that speaks up against him very clever names, and has gone on to piss off his most dedicated members.
Is this the type of coaching you need? Is this Professionalism? Is this what you want to PAY for?
If you’re looking to pay for Public Ridicule, then you should definitely pay him and speak up against his actions…if that’s your thing.
Everybody has rules, but you cannot create rules that limit your paying users, by threatening to ban them because you don’t agree with them having an opinion. This is not good Business practice, and this WILL cause his site to die.
Good riddance, Fidel. Good riddance.
Some of the most popular and respected names in Internet Marketing have warned me against this guy. People that normally would never say a bad thing about anyone…but I ignored them.
This guy claims our Project is a Carbon Copy of PPC Coach, or that we flat out stole his ideas…
Look, if you truly believe a guy who has promised you he doesn’t get any commission from those 3rd party tools and programs that he’s pimping through Webinars, or a guy who has promised his members Tools that were never spoken of again, then you’ll probably believe the guy.
But the fact is, I’ve had people tell me they couldn’t believe what they saw when they arrived at my site, because they were expecting something like PPC Coach. One of his first members said “This is what PPC Coach should have been. Unfortunately, he doesn’t care about his members enough to make this type of stuff happen. Excellent job!”
We get great feedback each and every day, and yet we know we’re far from perfect. Are we better than PPC Coach? That’s not for us to decide…but if you’re looking for Internet Marketing Training (something we actually know about, and something Fidel is clueless about), then you’ll find out site to be good, in MY opinion.
If you’re looking to waste time and money after learning about Polls, then Fidel’s site will be great for you. It’s the perfect place to get brilliantly executed, useless methods that died out over a year ago.
If you want to be fooled by his phony emails, and “I’m not one to hype, but” (really? This happens in every email, and every “announcement thread”), then that’s your thing.
Personally, I get annoyed by how he claims he gives away his commissions, doesn’t normally promote other products, or never hyped anything. Know why? Because it’s complete Bull$hit and everyone sees through it. It’s in every “news” bit he places.
He’s his biggest fan, and, quite frankly, I’ve created this post to be done with it all.
He’s run our names through the mud with his lies, hate and complete Bull$hit, trying to cover up the fact that his site is now being over shadowed by sites that offer so much more.
He’s claiming his site is the most established and most respected Affiliate Marketing training site online. Really? Dude, seriously…slap yourself in the face a few more times.
Wealthy Affiliate is the most established and respected Affiliate Marketing site, and they’re our competition, NOT you. I will give them props and free traffic, because I respect them. They’re respectful, respected and a REAL Business. You sir, are no Wealthy Affiliate.
Quite frankly, the only Affiliate Marketing I see you doing is pimping other people’s products to your paying members, and lying about it. Want to make some extra money, and go out of your way to promote another product? GO for it, but don’t B$ your customers. They don’t need that. They’ll respect you more if you’re honest with them.
Over the course of a year with PPC Coach I did learn something…
…other than running Polls.
I’ve learned that some people really don’t understand what running a Business really is. I’ve learned that Customer Retention is seldom looked upon in some sites. I’ve learned that there’s a lot of con artists in this industry.
But what I’ve learned most recently is that some people will lie through their teeth when they fear competition. Even when their “competition” never saw them as such.
I also came to the realization that he likes to take responsibility for everyone’s success, but never for anyone’s failures, including his.
See, I know there’s lots of big earners on PPC Coach, but this is not because of Fidel, or his lack of help that he supplies you for $49.99 a month… it’s because these people go to other sites to learn, too. They succeed because they’re the type that WANT to succeed.
But, what happens to those people who fail? Here’s what happens: He blames them for never asking questions. Regardless if they did or not, they’re the ones at fault.
If you take credit for those few who became super successful, you should take credit for all those whom you failed!
The guy is not a coach…he’s a site owner who’s all about control.
UPDATE: Thanks Will for the lovely reply. Always great to see what you do next!
Here’s proof that the “Eat Shit” guy down there is Will.
Now here’s his username from Affiliit.com, notice the IP’s?
Note that they’re both from Rogers, and that this guy is known to be this professional, like always.
Fidel, I truly feel sorry for you, and I can only hope that you will learn from this when you hit rock bottom.
Over and out. Those who want to flee Cuba, Affiliit.com has much more to offer you.
