Every so often, we run into an opportunity where we can make a positive impact on people’s lives. This is the case for Aaron Martinez, who is Cole Gordon’s right-hand man at Remote Closing Academy. Aaron says that he has the chance to meet and coach students on how to use their talents for remote closing and here them talk about how much their lives have improved while interviewing them during RCA podcasts. Some people have questioned whether Remote Closing Academy is some sort of pyramid scheme or MLM, so in this Aaron Martinez review, we’re going to see what we can figure out.
When Aaron addresses these “attacks” on RCA, he does so in a manner that leaves no questions about his feelings on the issue. He says that anyone who believes that RCA is anything other than a legit coaching program simply doesn’t know the details of the course. He likens it to leaving a one-star review on a movie that you never went to see or smearing an Italian restaurant because some disgruntled employees said that the cooks always seem to have “off” days. So when you see negative reviews of his course from people who are touting another program, you might want to take what they say with a little bit of salt.
Of course, this is the nature of the game. When your in the business of selling high-ticket coaching programs that compete with other programs like them, you tend to attract this kind of negative attention. Honestly, I can see where he’s coming from; most people who join these programs are sold on the dream of making millions from a tiny Clickfunnels landing page, when it involves a little more work than that. So my personal advice would be to let these prospective students know exactly what they’re getting for the money they’re spending; that way, they can’t say they were duped later on. It’s an unfortunate reality with some programs today, so it’s best to be upfront from the start.
I can tell you from personal experience that Remote Closing Academy is a great program with quality coaching, so when I see other course creators taking cheap shots at the program, saying that the training is lousy or that it’s overpriced when they haven’t actually looked at the course, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Surely, there are better ways to promote your programs. I think they would be better off just admitting that they really don’t know anything about it, telling people what they think about the business model, and calling it a day. I would at least respect them more for that.
So Aaron goes a bit deeper on the “pyramid scheme” accusations by saying, “I think that term has almost become a catch-all for anything anyone thinks is a scam, right? It doesn’t even have to be an MLM, and people are like, Oh, that’s a pyramid scheme. That doesn’t sound like it’s actually true. So I think that anyone who’s made a video about RCA being a pyramid scheme, I think that’s what they’re trying to say. But to put this to bed, no, there’s no recruiting going on inside Remote Closing Academy.”
Aaron unpacks the issue a little bit more by saying that there are course creators out there that simply learn about a business model, Amazon FBA for example. Then, they put together a course without any real-world knowledge or practical experience, sell it for a couple thousand dollars or even a five-figure price tag, and ride off into the sunset, leaving you with no actionable advice on realizing your dreams. He says that this is not how he and Cole Gordon do business, and they don’t plan on changing any time soon.
He wraps it up by saying, “And the difference here, guys, is we have never stopped operating in the remote closing realm. We have never stopped doing the thing that we are teaching other people to do. Of course I’m a little biased, but it’s amazing I get to help students learn this and change their life. And since I never stopped doing it myself, you’re getting the most updated information. We’re in the trenches with you every single day.” If you ask me, I have to take him at his word. Maybe they’re not taking their lumps like newbies are because they reached a certain level of success, but I can’t see them leaving anyone high and dry.
