Commission Hero Review 2020

17 things to know about Robby Blanchard's affiliate marketing course

robby blanchard commission hero phone

Welcome to my Commission Hero review for 2020.

I recently spent 7+ hours researching Robby Blanchard’s affiliate marketing course so you don’t have to.

If you want to know:

  • What Commission Hero is all about
  • If it’s legit or a scam
  • Common complaints about the course
  • Hidden costs you should be aware of
  • If students are actually getting results

Then you’ve come to the right place.

Let’s dive in…

Robby Blanchard's Commission Hero – Key Points
  About

A popular affiliate marketing course from the #1 affiliate on ClickBank.

💰  Price

One payment of $997 or two payments of $597 (discount info, join now)

😍  Pros

Taught by an expert, plenty of impressive student testimonials.

😩  Cons

Banned ad accounts, hidden costs, overly focused on ClickBank, unpopular refund policy.

  Verdict

Some notable flaws but still the best affiliate marketing training we’ve seen for paid traffic.

Overall Rating
2.6/5

IMPORTANT UPDATE – JUNE 6, 2020

I initially gave this course a 3.6-star rating, but have now reduced the rating to 2.6 stars.

Here’s why:

  • A verified buyer of Commission Hero recently wrote in the comments that Robby’s students are reporting frequent issues with their Facebook ad accounts being banned.
  • I reached out to a friend who has a ton of experience with affiliate marketing + Facebook ads and he responded with the following:
  • The aforementioned commenter also reported a couple of other problems with Commission Hero:

“these issues with Facebook are downplayed as to be not the big deal that they actually are. If you run any kind of weight loss offer you will get shut down over and over 100%, yet these are the kind of offers the course pushes you to promote. For some the shut downs, time lost and associated costs are insurmountable.”

Given all that, I think 2.6 stars is a more appropriate rating for Commission Hero at this time.

About the Author

Niall Doherty

Hey, I’m Niall Doherty.

I quit my last 9-to-5 job back in 2010.

Since then, I’ve earned my living online doing a variety of things:

  • Blogging
  • Web design
  • Online courses
  • Advertising
  • Ebooks
  • Affiliate marketing

I’ve bought and reviewed many online courses over the years, ranging in price from free to $3600.

Some of those courses were awful and earned me no money. Some were excellent and gave me a great return on investment (see my top picks here).

Commission Hero looks like a decent training program, but it’s not without issues.

What is Commission Hero?

Commission Hero is an online course by Robby Blanchard that promises to teach you how to make money online via affiliate marketing.

Here’s how the program is described on the sales page:

commission hero sales page 2

That same sales page makes some big claims:

  • The program will show you how to make $1000+ per day online
  • You don’t need any experience to get started
  • You can “be on track for 6-Figures online in the next 30 days”

We’ll examine those claims and more in this review.

How can you make money with Commission Hero?

You don’t make money directly from Commission Hero. Instead, the program lays out a system you can use to make money online. Specifically, it teaches you how to:

  • Find other people’s products that you can promote
  • Advertise those products on Facebook
  • Convert those advertising leads into sales
  • Collect a commission for each sale

Selling other people’s products and collecting a commission is called affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing can be done with organic (free) or paid traffic.

Commission Hero teaches you how to do it with paid traffic via Facebook ads. This leads to faster results but is also more expensive due to the advertising expense.

When successful, the entire process looks like this:

How affiliate marketing works – Commission Hero

Something you’ll see mentioned repeatedly on the Commission Hero sales page is the “3-step system”…

commission hero sales page 3

At a high level, the 3-step system looks like this:

  • Pick an offer to promote (usually via ClickBank)
  • Create a landing page (usually via ClickFunnels)
  • Create your Facebook ads

The promise of Commission Hero is this: if you follow the training to pick the right offers and create compelling landing pages and Facebook ads, you should be able to generate big profits.

Course creator Robby Blanchard gives a quick overview of how the Commission Hero system works in this video…

Is Commission Hero legit or a scam?

Commission Hero looks to be a legit course overall, and many students appear to be having success with it. However, there are some questionable elements to the training.

Commission Hero can’t be considered a scam because you do get access to the training when you sign up, and there are many believable reports of students having success with the program…

However, there are a few noteworthy issues with the training, such as: 

I cover those problems and more later in this review.

However, in spite of those issues, Commission Hero is still the best affiliate marketing course I’ve found that focuses on PAID traffic.

If you’re looking for an affiliate marketing course that teaches you how to get FREE traffic, check out my top recommendations below.

(Fair warning: making good money from free traffic usually takes a lot longer)

Commission Hero Price + Discount Info

You can get full access to Commission Hero for one payment of $997 or two payments of $597 (billed 30 days apart).

Note that with the 2-payment option you’ll end up spending $197 more for the same thing.

So if you do want to sign up, the one-time payment is the better way to go.

Commission Hero Discount

Sorry, there is no discount available for Commission Hero.

I searched high and low but couldn’t find any legit coupon or special offer.

That said, if Robby ever does run a special offer on Commission Hero, you’ll likely hear about it via his email list, which you’ll be added to when you sign up for his free webinar.

If you’re eager to get started today…

You might want to read about the refund policy first though.

Who is Robby Blanchard?

Robby Blanchard is the creator of Commission Hero.

He’s a former personal trainer and gym owner from the USA who in 2015 began selling his own digital products and then moved into affiliate marketing.

In 2019, he was named the top affiliate for ClickBank, one of the biggest affiliate marketing networks in the world.

Robby tells his own story in this video…

Robby apparently grew up in a small town in Massachusetts and attended Fitchburg State University.

Here’s his bio from his old CrossFit gym website:

robby blanchard fitness bio

Robby mentions in the above video that he got started with online business by running Facebook ads to promote his gym.

Here’s an old YouTube channel of his with various videos related to his fitness business, most notably this fresh-faced effort from 2009:

Robby says that he later created his own fitness program and sold it online.

Most likely that program was 6 Week Shred, which went live in 2015 and is still available…

robby blanchard fitness product sales page

Robby claims that his fitness program was generating $10,000 per week in revenue via ClickBank at its peak, and that seeing the success his affiliates were having inspired him to try affiliate marketing himself.

Fast-forward to 2019, and Robby was named the #1 affiliate by ClickBank after a month-long contest to see who could generate the most commissions…

Source: ClickBank.com

At the 2:45 mark of this April 2019 video, Robby shows that he’d already earned almost $1.8 million in ClickBank affiliate commissions in less than 4 months…

According to his LinkedIn profile, Robby also started a digital advertising agency in 2017…

robby blanchard linkedin profile

I’ve read from numerous sources that Robby’s media company has worked with clients such as Fit Body Bootcamp, Paleo Secret and Jason Capital International, but I haven’t been able to find confirmation for any of those.

Lastly, of course, Robby is the creator of Commission Hero, which seems to have been launched in early 2019, soon after he was named the #1 affiliate on ClickBank.

Good timing there, Robby 😉

COMMISSION HERO PRAISE 👍

Robby’s the real deal

There’s no denying that Robby has been very successful as an affiliate marketer. ClickBank has confirmed this by naming him their top affiliate, and Robby also regularly shows big earnings from his accounts.

Here’s a screenshot Robby shared from early 2019:

robby blanchard clickbank commissions screenshot

That’s a five-week stretch during which Robby racked up $1,012,533 in affiliate commissions, including one day where he generated more than $50,000.

Anyone who can do that clearly knows their stuff.

Furthermore, Robby seems to have done well promoting affiliate products in many niches, which gives him even more credibility.

All that to say, if you want to learn how to make big money with paid ads and affiliate marketing, it’s hard to find someone better or more experienced than Robby Blanchard to teach you.

Many testimonials from successful students

Robby’s own success would mean little if he wasn’t able to help others become successful. But I’ve seen enough positive reviews and testimonials from his students to believe that his training is legit.

For example:

commission hero review testimonial 4
commission hero review testimonial 5
commission hero review testimonial 6
commission hero review testimonial 7
commission hero review testimonial 8

You can also see a bunch of video testimonials from students of Commission Hero on this page.

commission hero video testimonials

I even found this report from a student saying Robby’s training helped them sell more of their own product:

commission hero review testimonial 9

So when Robby claims that Commission Hero can help you earn $1000’s per week or even per day, he’s not wrong.

Because clearly a good number of his students are doing just that.

No Flash

Despite Robby and his students having achieved plenty of success, you won’t see any flashy “millionaire lifestyle” imagery used to promote Commission Hero.

I had to add this section after reviewing another affiliate marketing course called Six Figure Mentors, which is all about showing off that “millionaire lifestyle”…

six figure mentors homepage
The top of the Six Figure Mentors sales page

That course is all style and no substance.

Mercifully, Commission Hero takes the opposite approach.

You’ll find no images of sports cars or tropical islands on the CH sales page – instead, all you see are images of screenshots showing actual student results…

Be wary of any course that tries to sell you on a particular lifestyle.

If the course really does help people make money, they should have lots of earnings screenshots to prove that, rather than trying to woo you with images of smiling models and spectacular sunsets.

COMMISSION HERO CRITICISMS 👎

Hidden Costs

The base price of Commission Hero is already expensive compared to other affiliate marketing courses. But that’s just the start, because it’s recommended within the program that you spend a lot more money to achieve success. Unfortunately, these additional costs are not made clear on the sales page.

The hidden costs within Commission Hero can be broken down into three categories:

  • Ads
  • Tools
  • Upsell

Ads

In fairness, this isn’t exactly a “hidden” cost, because the Commission Hero sales page does make it clear that you’ll need to spend money on Facebook ads to follow the training.

But I would argue that the amount of money they say you need to spend on ads is severely underemphasized:

commission hero faq how much capital
Source: FAQ section on the Commission Hero sales page 

From the reports I’ve seen from CH students, the typical profit margin they get from generated sales is 30-50%.

At that, a daily ad budget of $20 will bring you a profit of $8 to $20 per day ($240 to $600 per month).

Which is fine, because you can reinvest profits and scale up gradually from those humble beginnings.

But students should be aware that generating $1000 in affiliate sales every day at a 40% profit margin means spending $600 per day on ads!

That’s a hefty additional expense to fulfill the promise of Commission Hero…

commission hero sales page 4

After subtracting your advertising expense, that $1000-a-day would be down to $400-a-day.

Still good money, but not as good as the sales page leads you to believe.

Keep in mind as well that ClickBank’s payment schedule means that you won’t actually see any of your earnings in your bank account for 2-4 weeks.

So even if you’re spending only $20 per day on ads, that’s a $280 expense before you’ll see any return on your investment (assuming your ads actually prove profitable).

Spend $600 per day on ads, and you’re looking at a $8,400 expense before getting paid.

Tools

Several paid tools are recommended throughout the Commission Hero training:

  • ClickFunnels – $97/month after 14-day free trial
    Software to help you quickly build landing pages and funnels. If you want those pages on your own domain it’ll cost you an extra $20/year via ClickFunnels or less than $10/year through a registrar like Namecheap.
  • ClickMagick – $27/month after 14-day free trial
    Software to track and optimize your campaigns. 
  • Aweber – $29/month after 30-day free trial
    Mailing list software so you can collect email addresses and pitch offers to people more than once. (Popular alternative to Aweber listed here.)
  • Fiverr – starting at $5 per design
    Marketplace for finding and hiring designers to help you create images and videos for your ad campaigns.

You don’t necessarily NEED any of those tools to succeed with Commission Hero – and it sounds like Robby does mention some free and cheap alternatives within the course – but those particular tools are said to give you the greatest chance of success.

If you buy them all, you’re looking at an additional cost of about $150/month.

And yet the only additional cost mentioned on the Commission Hero sales page is this:

commission hero faq how much capital

Upsell

I’ve seen multiple reports that you are pitched an upsell for something called the Inner Circle right after you join Commission Hero.

You can see what the Inner Circle looks like from the 8:35 mark of this video…

Inner Circle membership apparently costs an additional $297 per month.

Here’s what you get for that price:

  • One new done-for-you campaign every month (product, landing pages, ad copy, etc.)
  • Special group just for Inner Circle members
  • A weekly Q&A webinar with Robby

It may be worth it, but I’ve read reports that some people find it annoying to be pitched a $297/month upsell right after spending $997 on a program that claims to have “everything you need”…

Given all of these additional costs, I cannot in good faith recommend that you sign up for Commission Hero if you’re on a tight budget.

Because, aside from the $997 fee for the program itself, you’ll probably have to invest at least another $1000 before you start seeing a good return.

If you don’t have much money to invest but do have lots of time, check out the free and cheap alternatives to Commission Hero listed here.

In particular, you might want to consider a couple of courses that teach you how to earn affiliate income using free traffic from Google (ie. no paid ads):

Almost exclusively focused on ClickBank

Commission Hero teaches you how to find and promote products from the ClickBank marketplace, but ClickBank is quite controversial.

I’ve covered the issues with ClickBank in detail here.

In brief:

  • The ClickBank marketplace lost 50% of its products in only three years, and there are fewer and fewer products listed on there each week.
  • Many of the products that remain are highly controversial, and some are considered outright scams.

Robby mentions several ClickBank products you can promote in these two videos:

One product Robby mentions is Ted’s Woodworking:

ClickBank marketplace product 2

That product is so infamous it gets a special mention on ClickBank’s Wikipedia page:

ClickBank product negative review 2

Robby also mentions a numerology product that you can promote via ClickBank:

ClickBank marketplace product 3

I made a whole video exposing that shadiness:

Robby also refers to ClickBank University as “a good one” to promote.

But after buying and reviewing ClickBank University myself I found it to be a borderline scam.

In general, Robby recommends promoting products in the “food, sex and money” niches.

Accordingly, here are some products listed on ClickBank that I’ve seen Robby recommending:

Robby has said that he earned “the vast majority” of $1.8 million from the last of those products in only four months, and has also said that many of his students did well promoting Leptitox.

Personally, I wouldn’t be comfortable spending $100’s and $1000’s trying to convince strangers on the internet to buy such questionable products.

But that’s just me 🤷‍♂️

Also regarding ClickBank: the refund rate is known to be quite high.

I’ve read that the average refund rate of products sold through ClickBank is 10%.

It will of course vary by product, but be aware that you will NOT get to keep all the money you earn promoting ClickBank products. And if you promote something really shady on there, the refund rate could be as high as 30%.

Apparently even Robby Blanchard himself sees a refund rate of almost 10% on ClickBank, as per the bottom of this earnings screenshot he shared:

robby blanchard clickbank commissions screenshot

All that said, there’s nothing stopping you from taking what you learn from Commission Hero and promoting less-questionable products that you find on ClickBank or elsewhere.

And, in fairness, Robby does have lessons on alternatives to ClickBank inside the training, such as MaxWeb and A4D.

Unpopular Refund Policy

I’ve seen numerous complaints about Commission Hero’s refund policy, which works like this:

  • You have to wait 12 months before requesting a refund.
  • You must then make your refund request within 7 days.
  • Before getting your money back, you may be asked to show proof that you gave the program your best shot.

From the Commission Hero sales page:

commission hero guarantee refund

And some small print from the Commission Hero terms and conditions:

commission hero guarantee refund 2

I get the “tire kickers” reasoning but I’m not a fan of this refund policy. If you could ask for a refund after 3 months or even 6 months, fine. But a year is far too long, IMO.

Especially given fast-ROI claims like this on the sales page:

commission hero sales page 6

By contrast, an affiliate marketing course called The Authority Site System (reviewed here) has a 30-day no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.

3 More Things You Should Know About Commission Hero

What exactly is included in the course?

Commission Hero mainly consists of text and video lessons, along with done-for-you templates and a very active private Facebook group.

This video gives you a quick look inside Commission Hero:

You can only get access to the private Facebook group once you’ve bought the program…

commission hero facebook group

The group looks to be quite active, with dozens of posts each day and hundreds of new members joining each month…

commission hero facebook group activity

Will this work in every country?

Copy on the Commission Hero sales page claims that the program will work for you “no matter what country you live in,” but this is unlikely.

commission hero faq which countries
Source: FAQ section on the Commission Hero sales page 

I say that’s unlikely because ClickBank is known to be banned in dozens of countries, and neither might you be able to sign up for a Facebook ads account in certain places.

As such, I’d recommend you try sign up for a ClickBank account and a Facebook ads account and ensure you can use both before investing in Commission Hero.

Banned Facebook accounts

It’s not uncommon for students of Commission Hero to have their Facebook ads accounts shut down for violating Facebook’s advertising policies.

Although there’s nothing in those ad policies that explicitly forbids affiliate marketing, Facebook doesn’t approve of ads that link directly to affiliate offers.

This is why Robby teaches students in Commission Hero to first drive leads to a landing page, and then persuade those leads to click on an affiliate link from there.

Even so, CH students still seem to regularly get in trouble with Facebook, to the point where there’s an entire lesson inside Commission Hero advising how to deal with account shut-downs:

commission hero deadling with account shutdowns

Here’s a student of Commission Hero alluding to account struggles…

commission hero review testimonial 10

In fairness to Robby, it looks like he does try to play by Facebook’s rules.

But, as he explains in this video, those rules can be quite fuzzy:

WRAP UP

Are students of Commission Hero actually getting results?

Judging by the screenshots Robby Blanchard shares from students, a significant number of them do seem to be getting solid results with the training.

For example:

commission hero review testimonial 3
commission hero review testimonial 2
commission hero review testimonial 1
commission hero review testimonial 7

As mentioned previously though, the above numbers aren’t quite as impressive as they first seem.

If we assume a 10% refund rate and a 40% profit margin (both about average), every $1000 in those screenshots works out to roughly $360 profit.

Which is still pretty good, especially given the consistency.

Who should join Commission Hero?

Commission Hero is the best affiliate marketing course I’ve found that focuses on PAID traffic.

I’d recommend taking the course if you want to go the paid traffic route AND…

  • You’re willing and able to invest another $1000 or more after buying the course
  • You can devote at least 10 hours per week to building your business
  • You’re happy to spend your time building and optimizing sales funnels
  • You don’t expect to become rich from this thing overnight

If that sounds like you…

How to join Commission Hero

You can usually join Commission Hero here. If that link leads you to a “waiting list” form, enter your info and you should be redirected to a page where you can still sign up today.

Eventually you should end up on a checkout page like this…

  1. Terrible scam! Do not purchase. What they dont tell you , is after you spend 2000 dollars for commission hero , you need to spend more to get assistance and you have to buy from multiple other software companies and pY out of pocket for your ads which wont sell .. so you you ask for a refund and they will give you 3 different refund rules and if you follow them they still find an excuse not to refund you. I was a cancer survivor with my last bit of money left and the ads were not honest so when I told them I wanted a refund because it wasnt what they sold it as.. they refused and gave me 3 excuses that all countered themselves… do not

  2. Lynn Hutchison

    HI
    I read your review on COMMISSION HERO .. I agree totally with you with the exception of the REFUND policy. They changed it.. After giving it a try for 4 days, I saw that they had failed to mention all of the extra costs not to mention the problems with FB closing down ads, etc.. After 4 days of noticing and going through their VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, because even though Robbie has a bunch of webinars listed on his course, he kind of brushes over the details on how to actually set up stuff, so it leaves a lot to be desired, and me trying to get answers through their NON responsive customer service.. Anyway, today, and 4 days into the course, I tried to get a refund and was denied because they wont refund anyone now if they actually sign up for the course and open any of their coursework.. They will only consider a refund up to 14 days after purchase AND if you HAVE NEVER ACCESSED THE COURSE!!!! What a SCAMMY refund policy is that?? They really think that anyone who purchases their course would not even open it and go through at least something there before deciding it is not for them?? The other thing I noticed is that there is NO PHONE NUMBER to contact them if I need to ask a question, in my case it would have been to spk to a manager.. but they dont have any phone number listed and as far as I believe there should always be a phone number listed.. isnt it ILLEGAL to have a website without a phone number? Appreciate your review, and only wish I had read it before buying the course..

  3. Commission hero is a well structured course with good social proof. You can make money on this course (under certain conditions.) The course like others that depend on gaining FB traffic to Clickbank offers has a bit of an achilles heel. One it tries very hard to play down and it is the ease at which FB accounts and business managers are closed down and the time it takes to get them back if you even can.

    And the number of closures is shocking, perhaps magnified by the times we are in and because FB has placed more reliance on auto moderation and automation and it causes a huge volume of false flags. This is a massive problem, one the course goes to some length to play down.

    The course and group teaches strategies such as warming up replacement accounts, utilising multiple credit cards, vpn’s and all sorts of other tools designed to circumvent Facebook account issues. The reality though is that you can easily spend a month fighting Facebook and not actually progressing through the course and making any money. In fairness this is a problem that impacts all courses of this nature, not only CH. I question whether the average person is really going to enjoy all this “in the shadows’ reality. 20 year old hungry affiliates with boundless energy might enjoy farming Facebook accounts through concealed ip’s in the dead of the night, not so certain that this is much fun for busy moms and full-time workers with kids. Plus you can spend $300 warming an account only to lose it over and over.

    I grew to dislike the course over time for several reasons, mainly that these issues with Facebook are downplayed as to be not the big deal that they actually are. If you run any kind of weight loss offer you will get shut down over and over 100%, yet these are the kind of offers the course pushes you to promote. For some the shut downs, time lost and associated costs are insurmountable.

    The way FB behaves is the biggest threat to Robby’s income and he knows it, he also knows that some people are unhappy with the course, usually on account of shut downs and all the extra expenses you need after buying in. The next thing I don’t like, is that dissenting voices and those who complain too vehemently can expect their FB group posts to be removed. It seems that they don’t like people pointing out the issues that this biz model has and asking for refunds. Some posts should be removed, especially if inappropriate or rude but I have seen many group posts pretty much explaining what I say right here get pulled down because it obviously negatively affects their refund rate and upsell income. In my opinion thats concealing the truth but being open; just sows the seeds of doubt and so costs them money it seems.

    Then yes I have to point out that CH is also one big upsell. You get pushed into Clickfunnels when there are cheaper and faster page builders out there. Robby gets a nice pay check for every single referral. Then there are the inner circle and coaching upsells. The latter is $10k for 90 days, I am not sure how this works if you spend the best part of 90 days trying to get your Facebook accounts working. I’d hope you get 90 days of actionable coaching optimising campaigns and landers; not time attributed to fighting Facebook but I do wonder! There are also expensive done-for-you upsells that are nothing of the sort. You need to change them or expect a FB closure.

    In mitigation some people have made this work and at the time of writing Facebook is definitely on a ban rampage and yes this may subside meaning easier progress in the future. There is no guarantee of that but you can make this work as long as certain conditions are true. If you do buy the course then buy it on that basis as Facebook is always changing and what stops you today might work much better tomorrow. The account issues can also be mitigated by avoiding weight loss offers but these are the most profitable and the ones the course pushes, go figure. Non weight loss offers can and will get shut down, just not as often.

    Some have mentioned the refund policy, while I have no desire to refund myself I did ensure I used a payment method that I could easily reverse. No-one should ever be forced to wait 12 months in order to ‘maybe’ get your money back.

    Be under no illusion, while Robby is affable and approachable and there is some good social proof; this course is 100% about making money for Robby and he is making a fistful. I don’t blame his business acumen for that. At the same time there are desperate people out there willing to work super hard yet they won’t pass the extra concealed road blocks, namely dealing with FB account issues and meeting all the extra costs. No one expects get rich quick and $1000 days does mean resistance has to be overcome. However this is not an ideal business model for most people ( except for Robby and his course ) mainly due to Facebook as the traffic source. While it has some redeeming qualities you can easily be 5k in the hole with nothing much to show for it. I think this review which I enjoyed was just a bit kind.

    1. Hey Chris,

      Thanks for that comment. You helped me refine this review so it’s more accurate and helpful.

      This reply is more for other folks reading.

      I’d like those readers to know that I reached out to Chris by email and verified that he is indeed a student of Commission Hero. He sent me screenshots from inside his account and the private CH Facebook group to prove it.

      Here are some other comments Chris shared via email that should provide some additional context:

      I was a reasonably competent FB advertiser going into this course. I made sales, I also lost account after account which prevented any scaling. It would be a good model except for Facebook bots really. I am not bitter by that, I think it’s a bad time to be doing this but in 3 months it could be radically different also.

      I would say that I think the bots have been dialled up due to the pandemic and less staff. There are lots of false flags, its a huge problem and weight loss offers are notably affected. So it may get better in the future. That is my approach, to try again every few weeks.

  4. Hi Niall, thank you for your honest review! I saw the webinar and I was thinking of signing up to Commission Hero, but I was hesitant due to the 12 month refund policy and the hidden fees. This program is definitely not for me, so I will check out your other reviews.

  5. Hi Niahl, I too purchased Robby’s course and do not like it. It is layed out in a sloppy, not thoughtful way, off-the-cuff way. Also, had I known clickfunnels was part of the program, I’d have clicked off immediately. We use clickfunnels and he gets the commission off of his student’s when he makes thousands daily. If you want private coaching or supposed done-for-you funnels, additional costs as you showed above. He’s making a killing off his students, not just his own clickbank account, for which I congratulate him. I wish I had never bought the program. I want to learn this skill. I like Marcus Campbell of Affiliate MC. I’m also looking into Sarah Staar’s course as there are not many females offering these courses, and I might be able to learn from a woman better, being one myself. Thank you for actually purchasing and sharing an honest review.

    1. Hi Devin,

      Thanks for sharing your experience.

      To be be clear: I did not purchase Commission Hero. I simply researched it using whatever information I could find freely available online and formed my impressions based on that.

      He’s making a killing off his students, not just his own clickbank account

      I believe you that he makes money off his students signing up to ClickFunnels, but given the screenshots I’ve seen from Robby and his students it seems that they still make the majority of their money via ClickBank. From what you wrote though it sounds like you’re suggesting that this is not the case?

      I agree with you though that it should be made clear on the sales page that paid tools like ClickFunnels are required to follow the training. Hidden costs suck.

      Do let me know how you get on with those other courses if you try them.

    2. Unfortunately I bought this course also. To begin with, they charged me for their “Inner Circle”, which I was not interested in. I immediately contacted Clickbank when I received a receipt for the purchase. They reassured me they would refund the charge. That weasel Robby Blanchard denied the refund. I spoke with my bank & found out he had charged my account 2 days after I bought the original course. To make a frustrating story short. After over 6 emails back & forth with the worthless support dept, I had enough~! Called my banker, explained everything & requested they dispute the entire purchase, which ended up being a few dollars short of $1400. If that loser Robby Blanchard made the Millions of dollars he claims, refunding the $300+ for his useless Inner Circle, wouldn’t have been an issue, what a ZERO, he is!!! Buyer Beware!!

      1. Hey Lisa, thanks for the comment.

        Did you ever get an explanation from Robby or his team as to why you were charged for the Inner Circle in the first place? Did they think you had ordered it somehow?

  6. Hi, Niall, thanks for the review, I just purchased Commission hero, and I am very disappointed about everything, I realized that this is not for me. I think that I did a mistake to purchase this course. So, that means I cant get my money back, even after 12 month, because even I will not have chance to prove it that used the system, and why I dont want to use this system because it’s too expensive to get going. I I thgout it will be some free traffic to use it or at least not so expensive. I dont know what to do with this course now, I would like some advise from you, if possible? What would you do in my situation? Thanks again.

    1. Hi Galina,

      That really sucks. And it emphasizes why I wish every course had a no-questions-asked 30-day refund policy: it’s just too easy for someone to buy a course on a whim and not realize what they’re getting into.

      I’d recommend emailing Robby or his support team anyway. Tell them you made a mistake and didn’t read the sales page properly and it’s your fault, but ask if they can please make an exception and issue a refund because you really need the money. They’re under no obligation to refund you, but at the same time it doesn’t do them much good to have people buying the course and not using it at all. Their ideal customer is someone who can apply the training and get great results, and it sounds like you’re not in a position to do that.

      You can tell them to check your account as well. Presumably they’ll be able to see that you haven’t gone through much of the training material, which might help. (It reassures them you didn’t just buy the course, download all the videos/materials, then asked for a refund.)

      Let me know if you message them and what response you get back. Robby seems like a nice, genuine guy – unlike many others in the affiliate marketing world – so there’s a decent chance he’ll make an exception for you.

    2. Good luck Galina,
      That worm Robby Blanchard doesn’t intend to ever refund anyones’ money. My bank is after him for fraud!! I saw another complaint about him on Ripoff Report, sounds a lot like what he tried to pull on me. Check it out if you want. You can try & go through Clickbank, but if you receive the same treatment the rest of us have, that jerkoff will deny the refund! Something very wrong with all of this.

  7. Hi Niall !! This is an amazing and enlightening review. Thanks for it. I want to get into Affiliate Marketing (for a sustainable and rewarding passive income source) and want to do it very professionally. Thus i want to have the right Mentor. I also came across this another training course called “Super Affiliate System Pro” by John Crestani. Do you have any review or opinion on that ??
    Would really appreciate your response.

    1. Hey Yaman,

      I spent about 5 hours researching John Crestani and his Super Affiliate System today. I will write up and publish my findings soon.

      But for now, I’ll just say that it would be best to avoid that program. Lots of red flags. Check out Commission Hero instead. That teaches the same thing – affiliate marketing with paid ads – but seems far more trustworthy and effective.

  8. Thanks for this stunning review as I’m starting to put money on the side to get this training. I have already my clickfunnel account and autoresponder, been through the one funnel away challenge and want to focus on affiliate marketing with paid ads. As I have got a good understanding of the clickfunnel platform and how affiliate marketing works, do you thing it would be a good training to learn a bit deeper how Affiliate marketing with clickbank and FB ads works ?(I’am willing to pay the 997 plus an extra 700 for ads)
    But your review is absolutely great
    Fantastic job

    1. Hey Charles,
      Thanks for the comment, and the kind words.
      It sounds like you’ve already made a solid start and know what you’re getting into. Commission Hero is the best course I’ve seen for doing affiliate marketing with paid ads, and given that you have the extra $700 to spend on ads then I think it will serve you well. You could probably start out spending the $10-20 per day on ads and learn the ropes that way, then scale up once you start seeing consistent results.
      If you do sign up for CH, I’d appreciate it if you could follow up in a few weeks and let me know how you’re getting on with it.
