The Rich Jerk Is Back! He Needs Your Hard Earned Money!

 

The rich jerk reviewIt was literally impossible for anyone involved in Internet Marketing to miss the pre-launch hoopla about the new product by a guy calling himself “The Rich Jerk”. Legend has it that he made a killing (several million of dollars) with his original version of Rich Jerk, which was a bestseller of Clickbank for almost 3 years.

Then it went real quiet about the Rich Jerk, not a peep to hear from him for about 6 or 7 years. But now he is back; louder than ever, obnoxious like hell, arrogant, annoying, insulting and outright ridiculous. In short, a big jerk.

Finally, after about 4 weeks of pre-launch hype, the new Rich Jerk was released on October 3, 2015. Let me tell you right off the bat, I did NOT purchase the product. A close associate of mine, who also is a Launch Jacker and Rich Jerk Affiliate, let me have a look behind the curtain, which enables me to tell you what it’s all about. Here is my Rich Jerk Review.

 

Who is The Rich Jerk?

I know but won’t tell. The person behind The Rich Jerk wants to keep his name anonymous and I respect his wish. I can give you a hint though.

Think about Colonel Sander’s famous, 3-letter ‘Fried Chicken’ joint without the last letter, then you get the initials of the real name of the Rich Jerk creator. Dig around the web for a bit and look for a not so fresh IM product, released some years back, that got good reviews. Even yours truly bought it back then, used it with good results and wrote a positive review about it.

 

The Rich Jerk Sales Page!

The video production is great and the sales page is outstanding. I am talking only about the quality of video & audio, and the design of the web page. As you scroll down, text boxes slide in from the left or right, from top down or bottom up, images move towards you and back. Not a bad ass design, I admit.

The Content however, is a completely different story. It has all the elements of the typical Scam Products, we all know just too well.

Let’s start with the video. The person portraying The Rich Jerk is an actor simply named Mr. X, narrating a 15 minute long useless and idiotic clip full of foul language and insults. Of course, the main elements are a rented Mansion, a rented limo, and the supporting staff playing a chauffeur, gardener and an old fart with a walker. 5 different bikini wearing models sitting around the house doing nothing, or cruising with The Rich Jerk aimlessly around in the limo.

 

Like I said, just the usual stuff to build up hype and false hopes to lure in as many victims as possible. You will even see the former NBA player Dennis Rodman and famous actor Gary Busy making a cameo appearance. However, by far the dumbest scene is when he gets out of the limo and the fake chauffeur hands him a fake sub machine gun, which he then uses for skeet shooting. What a dorky video!

Oh, how dumb of me, I almost forgot. Of course, you’ll see three short testimonials from some guys claiming to have made immense sums of money with The Rich Jerks program in almost no time. And the big master himself DOES talk, even if just for a few minutes, about his product. Not that you will be any wiser what it’s all about, because all you hear is some platitudes like

“Why am I a multi-millionaire and you are not? Because I go where the money is”

and stuff like that. Basically, sitting through the whole thing is a waste of time.

And on we go, scrolling down the sales page, you’ll be greeted with the first insult, and a showing of 4 pictures of what you will never have, because you are too…………………… see for yourself.

 

the rich jerk review

 

There you have it; This is the motto throughout the page, with thrown-in testimonials (videos & written), scantily clad woman, more images of a big “The Rich Jerk Party at the Playboy Mansion” where he charged $1,000 admission fee.

And I won’t forget this time. He also lets on, if even just a little, what the program is all about. You don’t find out much though, but besides more of the usual bla-bla, he actually gives some hints of what to expect.

Of course, statements like……………

Newbies will be up and running with a profitable website in no time,

WITHOUT any prior SEO knowledge – even if you have no idea how to 

make a website. It takes just 15 minutes to get started and is broken 

down into simple step-by-step instructions that even my autistic 

Nephew can understand………..

heebie jeebies, if you know what I mean. As if that ever worked, just 15 minutes and your site is ‘profitable’. LOL. LOL. And stuff like the image below does not make me feel any better about The Rich Jerk.

Ok folks, I am done with my rant about the sales video, the sales page and this Rich Jerk. Let me show you what’s in the package. 

 

What’s In The Rich Jerk Course Package?

The course comes in 4 sections:

Section 1: Ninja SEO Training 

For the life of me I cannot understand what’s with all this Ninja crap. Can’t they just call it SEO training? Or maybe you get a Black Belt and a Ninja Star at the end of the course.

a look at the rich jerk members page

Anyways, the training comes with 5 PDF files and 5 videos 

  • Niche Research
  • How to Find Profitable Affiliate Offers
  • Build A Website
  • Content Silo Method
  • List Building

In addition, you’ll get a Case Study about Keyword Ranking.

 

Section 2: Facebook Marketing

This section is done by a successful Facebook Marketer. In this Case Study they cover everything you need to know how to make money with Facebook marketing strategies. They summarize it with a 2 hour video that shows the whole process.

Section 3: Launch Jacking

This is a very interesting topic and, to be honest, can be a real money maker IF you know how to do it correctly. What exactly is it? Here is a definition:

Launch Jacking is the art of successfully riding on the momentum of product launches. Why this is such a powerful strategy is whenever a new product launches there is typically a lot of buzz, meaning lots of people searching for that particular item (source: udemy.com).

This is a very extensive section that includes a total of 17 modules (PDF and Video) and covers EVERYTHING about Launch Jacking. They teach you from getting the right domain, to how to use WordPress, picking products, creating or outsourcing content, and link building. All-in-all a complete package as far as I can tell from the content list.

Section 4: A Little Bit Of Some Other Stuff

This looks like a “throw-some-other-stuff-in” bonus to make the package look bigger. Don’t get me wrong; I am not beating this section down. It contains some videos and ebooks from other successful folks showing what and how they did to make good money. 

How Much Does The Rich Jerk Course Cost?

One-Time-Payment: $497

3-Payment-Plan: $197/3-monthly payments

Are There Upsells (OTOs) With The Rich Jerk?

Well, he wouldn’t be a jerk if there wouldn’t be more stuff for you to spend your hard earned money on. There are 3 upsells in the area I had access to as non-paying visitor (remember my friendly associate?), but according to the JVZoo sales page, there are 7 sales funnels, meaning there some more.

Upsell 1:

By-weekly Coaching $197/per month

Upsell 2: 

Rich Jerk Software with one-on-one coaching via Skype $997

Upsell 3:

Rich Jerk SEO Software $79 and up/per month

 

My Opinion About The Rich Jerk:

The Pros of The Rich Jerk:

Section 2 Facebook Marketing.

They provide helpful insight into the techniques used by a successful marketer which many folks, me included, are not aware of. Personally, I am not a friend of FB for different reasons, and not really interested looking into that matter. However, if you are an active FBer, the case study contained in the Rich Jerk course may be for you.

Section 3 – Launch Jacking.

This is definitely a topic I am interested in. The beef I have with most of the typical Launch Jackers is that they seem to have no ethics at all. They don’t care if a product is good, bad or outright ugly (meaning crappy or scam), as long as their sales page, and the fake review, bring results and as many sales as possible. I am an affiliate marketer myself, making a decent living income promoting different products. However, I have not, and will not in the future, promote crappy products.

The Cons of The Rich Jerk:

The Sales Strategy sucks.

You may find the video funny, I just think it’s inappropriate. That point aside, there are some statements that are simply not true. To mention just one: Everybody in the business knows that it is IMPOSSIBLE to have a site up and running, ranking and make profit within 3 days. 

The Price of The Rich Jerk.

I believe the product is grossly overpriced. Take Section 1 for example. Most of what’s covered in just 5 videos is easily available for less money, some of it even for free. 

The Upsells.

Come on folks, gimme a break. You charge $500 for the course and expect members to pay an extra $200 for bi-weekly coaching in a group session, or $79/ and up/per month for the use of a piece of software? Shaking my head about that. I don’t even want to touch the $1,000 for one-on-one Skype sessions with………definitely not the Rich Jerk himself, he may be too busy groping his bikini girls. Darn, I can’t believe I actually said that!

No Mention Of Necessary Investments

Nowhere I had access to could I find any information about investments necessary to run an online business. In essence, cost for domain name (min. about $10), hosting (min. $8/month), autoresponder system needed to build a list (min. $29/month), were mentioned nowhere. List Building by itself cannot be taught in ONE short video lesson and is the subject of many courses (eBooks or videos), which cost anywhere from $50 to several hundred dollars. Maybe this is one of the hidden upsells, who knows?

Is The Rich Jerk Trustworthy?

I don’t know about you, but I ask myself why I should trust someone who not only ‘prefers to keep his name anonymous‘, but also chooses a rude and insulting way to ask for my hard earned money, and not just for a little of it. I know this is a marketing gimmick, but still. Even the biggest crooks which ran the largest ever pyramid scam on the Internet were not hiding behind aliases. Just saying.

So, Is The Rich Jerk A Scam?

I cannot call it a scam. The course has definitely great value, in some areas, for people with affiliate experience, looking to take their business to the next level. I am not quiet sure if it can teach total newbies how to start an online business. Although the Rich Jerk claims his course will, I believe that beginners will be in way over their head, feeling overwhelmed and simply quit.

The creator of The Rich Jerk has put together a course that is not half ass bad, and can be of great help to struggling affiliate marketers. I cannot recommend the course to total newbies because important topics are not taught in depth enough, i.e. Website Building, SEO, Niche Research, Keyword Research.

There Is An Alternative:

Let me use The Rich Jerks words.

 

If you are a Loser and belong to the Little-Person group that cannot scrape together $500 or $600 bucks to change your life, the Rich Jerk doesn’t want you inside HIS member area anyways. He made that very clear. However, if you are serious about building your own online business, are willing to learn and work hard to achieve your goals, I strongly recommend you take a look at My #1 Recommendation, where I learned Affiliate Marketing from the ground up.

  1. I have a question about The Rich Jerk Program. Are the 13 done for you websites still available as an upsell for $497?

  2. Hi my name is John too: I’ve heard this before and I really want to buy this stuff Rick jerk is real and its legit and I believe that, maybe the guy rj wants to keep himself anonymous for some reasons, what I’m trying to say is don’t make a review about the rj with no corrections and don’t let people discourage them from this course or program, we don’t know what exactly rj really wants but I’m telling you it’s not a scam.

    • Hi John, thanks for chiming in. The person behind the Jerk is quite a reputable and well respected Internet marketer. He has a pretty good product on the market for several years now. My guess is that he simply makes fun of all the NOT so legitimate programs and their creators out there. I’ll chuck it off as ‘don’t take serious’.

  3. Hello, John, It was a pleasure to visit your site today. I found a lot of information that’s beneficial to me as owning an Online Business. Thanks a lot. Take care, John.

  4. Hey John,

    I remember hearing about the Rich Jerk years ago. Seriously, the whole internet marketing industry gets a little ridiculous sometimes. One thing that is a red flag is the hype; the nice cars, women, etc. I have been doing affiliate marketing for 7+ years and have seen it all. But, the Rich Jerk just looks like a complete joke! I almost lost it when there is 1 on 1 coaching with this tool for $997. Seriously, Kyle and Carson help you a ton at Wealthy Affiliate for $299 year (Black Friday Sale).

    Keep up the good work John. I like your site and really feel you’re writing honest reviews to help people out 🙂

    • Hi Garen, thanks for chiming in. The guy behind the Rich Jerk is actually a pretty good person who had great success with a pretty good program. This one here is just a gimmick, but he makes some money with it. Nothing to learn from it…….people just have to understand that

  5. John,

    I heard about this guy a while ago before Wealthy Affiliate made me a real work at home entrepreneur. I find his obnoxious ads sort of funny, funny to the point of realizing he is not to be taken seriously, him AND his “Rich Jerk” program. The only “jerk” here would be those who would be gullible to fall for this crap.

    But I can see why Kelly Felix……..Oops!……..why the Rich Jerk would be so obnoxious in his sales pitches. Because many people like that “SHOCK” value. Reminds me of a late 1980s trash-TV show by Morton Downey, Jr. I think people watched his show mostly for the shock value, I know I did. LOL

    I guess KF is back as the Rich Jerk because he is not making as much with his “Bring the Fresh” program. But who knows for sure. The question is, will he use the same guido-looking model/actor he used previously or find a new one?

    Robert

    • Hi Robert, you are 100% correct in your assessment of K.F. We all know that he spends money like a nut case. That’s why he went broke a few years back. Now he is at it again. Unfortunately, he always finds a lot of gullible folks who actually believe that there is an easy way to make money online. Even creating junk like the Rich Jerk takes hard work and then a non-conscious mind to take the folks money.

  6. Awww the good old Rich Jerk. I never expected to see him again. I remember the days when he was all over the web. I wonder why he’s back. In any event, I find his whole sales pages hilarious because he’s basically just poking fun at the sales pages we’ve all seen but just being even more over the top with it.

    So I think it’s meant to be more tongue in cheek than anything and not to be taken seriously. But I can see how it will turn some people off. It’s good to hear some of the aspects of the product are solid.
    I’ve kicked around the idea of Product Launch Jacking because I know there are a lot of affiliates that make a lot of money doing it. But to make a lot of money doing it, you would have to promote a lot of sub par products and I just don’t feel comfortable doing that even though I could make a lot of money doing it.

    But to each their own. Thanks for another great review John! Good stuff as always!

    • Thanks for your comment Eddy. I know it’s just a sales tactic, but nevertheless, we are talking about a serious business here, not a commercial for magazines like Hustler or Playboy. There is some good stuff in the course, but the price is too high; understandably so if you consider that 50% go to the affiliates promoting the product, and the remaining dough has to be split 2 or even 3 ways. As far as Launch jacking is concerned. I looked into it, and as you say, you can’t be picky and have to promote every single on of the new launches. That also means that over time, you lose credibility with your readers/visitors because most of them will end up losing money. BTW, the site of a long-time Launch Jacker is not available anymore and the Domain is available again. Nancy Review finally bit the dust. I only recommend good, solid products, makes me sleep better at night.

  7. I saw this guy and didn’t realize who it was, really. I detest everything about he’s products and ways of advertising. There should be laws against this guy being able to sell anything this way.

    And I’ve read other reviews where the product is just a book of information you can basically get for free just by searching the net.

    Also the upsells are so wrong! How could anyone steal money from others like this! I hate this guy, I hate this program, and I hate the name. Although it is relevant to the person involved.

    Glad you got the word out here, John and you are going after this crooks and Jerks!

    Rick

    • Hi Rick, thanks for stopping by. Some of the course is actually pretty good. However, the whole Rich Jerk thing is a blatant money grab. I can’t understand why the real creator of the program thinks he has to revert to this jerk thing. You see, $500 for the course are split 3 or 4 ways. The super affiliates get 50% commission, the other 50% are split between the ‘jerk’ and the other 2 or 3 contributors. Still a nice junk, and then the big dough comes from the ridiculous upsells. Too bad the guy chose to go this way. His other big program was really not bad.
