You may have seen an ad on Facebook lately promoting a company named Valley Life. Ya know…the one with “office” written out with sea shells on the beach? “Another beautiful day at the office! ♥” the ad starts off. “Advertising online can seem exceptionally complicated at times.” Looks like we’re about to walk into a paid ads program pitch…Scroll down for my full Valley Life Marketing review.
The ad continues “I don’t let this get me down because I figure if I follow the tried and true systems, I can have great success too! Who feels this way too? I am giving a free training in a private group that can help clarify a lot of things and turn a negative advertising environment into a positive one.” While this ad certainly has a positive undertone it does seem a bit too positive. Dare I say inauthentic…
You see, the issue with a lot of coaches and guru’s today is their crazy amounts of positivity. Now look, I’m not trying to be a debbie downer or anything like that, but what I am trying to say is that there should be more authenticity in this space. Not every day is going to be paradise and working from the beach. Besides, most gurus only go to the beach when they’re shooting ads anyways.
I’m more likely to trust the “guru” that addresses the good and the bad of the model they’re proposing. After all, there is no such thing as a “perfect” business. So forgive me when I’m more than a bit skeptical about how positive this ad is turning out to be. “I’m not trying to brag, but this training is what I needed when I began advertising! I was a disaster at anything I touched. At least that’s how it felt and the bad results spoke for themselves.”
“Once I got some good training (over 2 years, from 3 top marketers+ & still learning, always learning) I then had the skills to run ads successfully. Every day is a new adventure and I’m loving it!” Side note…who are these top 3 marketers she spent 2 years with? And are they taking on any new students? Ok, so what do you actually get inside this training?
“In my training I’ll show how to : 1 – Set up Business for success & verification. 2 – Open, Set up and Warm up Social Media Business Assets. 3 – Create an Audience to Advertise to and even How to Run Ads. 4 – Plus Much, Much More!” And how much does this all cost? Well when you click off to the landing page it’s apparently free…
Now getting pushed into a free facebook group training isn’t all that bad. It’s a great way for them to try and prove their worth up front to you as a prospective student. But you should know that nothing in this world is free by now. Odds are there is going to be some kind of pitch at the end of this free training that will cost you anywhere from a couple hundred bucks to a couple thousand bucks. Is Yvonne Rice legit? Well, she seems like a very nice person…but I’m more interested in learning from whoever she learned from.
