Update: For reasons explained below and because I found a less expensive and more comprehensive Facebook advertising course, I can no longer recommend Jason Hornung's course.
Click Here for the course I recommend: Facebook™ Ad IQ Academy
I personally bought and am currently going through the Facebook™ Ad IQ Academy course now and am loving it!
If you want all the details about Jason Hornung, you can read the original post and the updates below.
One of your biggest challenges in learning how to build an internet based business is all the noise and learning who you can trust...
Figuring out who is trustworthy enough to transact with is tricky... After all, we only have access to their copywriting skills, their self-curated personas via social media, etc...
If you listen to and follow the wrong people...
You can go down the path of outdated tactics that can have a negative impact on your business... Or worse!
You could end up paying for services that were not rendered and potentially lose money.
Unfortunately, this is the end result of my dealings with Jason Hornung... And I'm sad to update this post with my doubts of his untrustworthiness.
Having spent over $18,000 in coaching and training... I also generated tens of thousands of dollars in sales for him as an affiliate.
After deciding to quit his coaching program, he obliged and stopped charging me.
After two months of Hornung's coaching, I realized that I was chasing the wrong metric... I was chasing the money for money's sake, which is an expression of greed.
I did not like this focus for myself and my business... I also didn't feel there was sufficient value in the program...
I thought all was good and carried on.
So I went about my business and a few months later, noticed I had racked up over $7,417 in commissions from referring his product... But no payments in the last few months.
I reached out to the support email at the Jason Hornung Agency inquiring if there was something I needed to do and received a shocking email from Jason himself...
In short, he decided to withhold all affiliate commissions until he was paid in full for the one year of coaching even though I exited the program after two months.
He is expecting to receive $30,000 for what turned out to be 8 phone calls, 7 of which were in group settings.
To me, this is either shady business or shitty business and this is when I lost trust that he would take care of you as a customer in the way I believe you deserve to be treated.
I'll be honest, the well-crafted sales messaging and promises of $100,000 months from a master salesman excited my ego driven desires for more.
I fell for the pitch... Hook, Line and Sinker!
The funny part is that since I left his coaching program and stopped getting distracted by his ideas, my business has grown in profit and revenue and I just had a record month.
Kind of a moment when I needed to listen to my own advice...
If you'd prefer to listen to this content from the video above, play it or download it from the podcast episode below.
Now I am in a challenging position where someone who I thought was a trustworthy mentor has shown his true colors...
I have put my name behind his products promoting them as an affiliate but can not continue to do so because I do not trust that he has your best interest at heart.
I'll keep the original post here below... But was compelled to update this post with the recent turn of events.
Is his Facebook advertising course comprehensive? Yes.
Is it worth $1495? ....Maybe.
But before you go dropping that crazy amount of cash on a course, you need to see the other great Facebook Advertising courses that deserve your attention... Here is a short list.
Now... Back to the original post:
Enter Jason Hornung.... Who this post is about.
You will learn more about Jason in this review post...
Plus you will get some inside information about him that you won't find anywhere else online.
How do I know so much about him?
Because after we met in 2015, I have been keeping an eye on him watching if his tactics continue working...
I've also been studying him to figure out if his integrity is in the right place... And testing his tactics to see if they work.
So let's jump in... Who is Jason Hornung
Let's review, Jason has two distinct sides to his business, The Jason Hornung Agency.
First, he runs a Facebook Ad agency where he creates profitable Facebook ad campaigns.
His clients are generally internet marketers with information products.
Now just saying that Jason advertises for internet marketers is an understatement when you look at his client list...
The Jason Hornung Agency has run ads for Frank Kern, Ryan Deiss, Mike Dillard, Neil Patel, Todd Brown, Sam Ovens and many other successful marketers
He runs ads and campaigns for some of the best marketers in the world.
Jason is truly 'the guy behind the gurus' in many senses..
This is how I first met Hornung...
I reached out to him and The Jason Hornung agency to see if we were a fit for him to run my ads for my funnels.
I learned about him from Mike Dillard's List Grow course.
Mike had Jason on to do the Facebook advertising training at the end of that course and it blew me away.
Immediately, I wanted his help with my ads and campaigns.
I reached out to him and the Hornung agency to see if we were a fit for him to run my ads for my funnels.
This was in 2015 and resulted in our first one-on-one consulting session...
Jason got on the phone with me to review my funnel, my numbers and to see if we are a good fit.
Hornung's willingness to get on the line at no charge, to see if we were a fit was a big integrity move, for sure.
Too many facebook advertisers want to charge for a first strategy session...
Their desire to start billing right away, without knowing if they can help is a huge turn-off and a sign of a rookie.
After that call, it became clear that my funnels didn't have enough profit margin for his team's fee.
At the time, his team's fee was $10,000 per month... Now they charge $20,000 per month!
Although we were profitable, we were not that profitable... But I wanted to know more about his FB Advertising methods.
This takes us to the second side of The Jason Hornung Agency.
The goal is to let you know about Jason Hornung, himself.
If you were to ask me... "Miles, can I trust Jason Hornung?"
Jason Hornung is the exact opposite...
