Recommended Courses

This page contains only the best-of-the-best courses that I've gone through and have gotten great value from.

I am not including the tools or software I use and recommend here, just the courses.  To learn about the tools I use to grow my business, click here.

For transparency and disclosure, you should assume that all links on this page are affiliate links and that I do receive a commission if you click through and purchase.

That said, I only recommend products that I have used personally and recommend based on how beneficial they will be to you in growing your business to the next level.

It takes a lot for a course to make this list and out of the 100+ courses I've been through, you will notice only a tiny fraction make it here.

Ok, onto the list.

#1 - Facebook™ Ad IQ Academy


Millions of dollars are being made by advertisers on the Facebook advertising platform, every day...

Are you in on the gold rush?

When Facebook allowed their advertisers to leverage the interests, psychographic and demographic information they have been collecting on their 2 billion+ users, they changed the marketing and advertising world forever.

Now, individuals like you and me can target people based on their age, their income, their likes and dozens more intimate details that make the Facebook ads platform the best investment for advertising ever created.

This course is a 100% complete course that will take you from the very basics to the most advanced techniques... So whether you are a beginner advertiser or you have been here for years and are looking for more techniques and tricks to further increase your ROI, get the Facebook™ Ad IQ Academy, now!

This is the most current course on Facebook advertising that I have personally purchased and am studying!

#2 - 3x Sellerator Video Sales Letter Training & Software

- The quality and persuasiveness of your video sales letter or VSL, is the ultimate factor between failure and success with your online business. If you are unable to convert traffic into paying customers, your business will fail. Luckily there is a formula that has generated over one billion dollars in sales by all the greats like Frank Kern, Eben Pagan, Ryan Deiss and more...

The 3x Sellerator software created by Jon Benson, the inventor of the VSL has been closed and is no longer accepting new customers.

If you want a software tool that helps you create sales letters, VSLs, ad copy and headline copy fast, like the now-closed Sellerator did.... Check out Funnel Scripts here- https://www.milesbeckler.com/funnel-scripts

#3 - The Authority Site System

This course most closely teaches the exact process my wife and I used to build our website, our audience and our income... From the ground up on a tight budget.

If you are just getting started or looking for a step-by-step guide for making money online as an affiliate (that can grow into a product creator or membership program) this is it.

This course is by the Authority Hacker team and they are trustworthy practitioners who leverage these techniques in multiple verticals including the health and wellness niche, the golf niche and more.  So they aren't just teaching 'ideas' they found and re-packaged from a forum...  They are teaching you exactly what works and what to do in an organized and step-by-step fashion.

In addition to their super-detailed tutorials, you get access to their Facebook group for ongoing advice and support as you move through the course modules.  This access to their team and to the other authority site creators is a powerful way to stay connected and keep motivated as you push through to build your first profitable website.

I personally have access to this product and their more advanced Pro level course and have received great value from it.  They really helped me dial in my gameplan for taking my video content and leveraging that to grow this blog that is now receiving over 1000% more traffic than it was before!

e5#4 - Todd Brown's E5 C.A.M.P. Customer Generation System

Todd Brown is the go-to marketing funnel consultant for the best-of-the-best in internet marketing.

I appreciate his focus on the old-school concepts like the prospect's awareness level, the unique mechanism, and the big idea. Todd is "The Big Idea" guy, after all!

The E5 process is simple, yet profound when implement it correctly for your business. Here's the breakdown of the E5 system:

Examine: Discover your best prospects and their primary desires.

Engineer: Get the attention of your marketplace

Evaluate: Launch you campaigns and let the data guide you.

Enhance: Increase conversions and customer value

Expand: Scale, scale, scale!

You may notice that on this page, there are very few courses recommended... Above is 'traffic', this is 'funnels' and below is 'email autoresponder' because all you need is to perfect these three working parts to create a highly lucrative online business.

It took me years of trial and error to figure out a lot of what is taught in the E5 CAMP on my own and honestly, I've still barely scratched the surface! don't let the simplicity of these ideas confuse you… This is the "Million Dollar Secret" behind the most successful businesses online, today.

Best part? You can get a full dose of Todd's style and his teachings through his Free masterclass workshop, here<!/a>

#5 - Email Marketing with Andre Chaperon's Autoresponder Madness

You obviously 'get' that the core of your online business is your email list. You also understand that the money is in your relationship with your list. So how do you quickly and effectively establish that relationship?

Enter the Autoresponder Madness course from Andre Chaperon...

It is rare that internet marketers all over the world will concede that there is one be-all-end-all course on a subject... But Andre Chaperon's Autoresponder Madness is just that.

This course is deep and goes into the exact ideas that made TV shows like Lost, 24, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones successful and how to incorporate the kinds of psychological addiction those shows created into your emails so your audience doesn't just read your emails...

They are waiting on the edge of their seat, refreshing their Gmail hoping that you sent the next email so they can read it from start to finish!

When you have achieved this level of email marketing, your open rates go up, your engagement goes up, your income goes up and it all happens faster than ever before.

This course is deep and is for you if you are building your list but feel like you haven't really crafted the kind of deep relationship with your audience yet that results in a hyper-responsive list.  Learn how to do just that, here.

#6 - Story Powered Marketing - Michael Hague and Andre Chaperon

Nowhere is the power of the story more evident than in Hollywood. Michael Hague is a professional script consultant who helps the biggest names and movies in Hollywood. He coaches screenwriters, producers, stars, directors on how to make their stories and characters more engaging for the viewers.

When Will Smith wasn't satisfied with the new Karate Kid script and how the 'hero' of the story didn't tug at the audience's heartstrings... He called Michael Hague! And those changes made that move an absolute HIT!

A few years ago, Michael got discovered by a handful of internet marketers and was brought into some high-end marketing seminars to coach internet marketers about how to leverage the power of story in marketing. From here, Andre Chaperon found out and started hiring him for coaching on his autoresponder sequences.

Shortly thereafter, Andre and Michael did a paid webinar together that completely changed my perspective on marketing and storytelling... I had always heard 'stories sell' but this was the first time I got a real formula to follow and it has revolutionized my main business incorporating this into my videos, blog posts, emails, and autoresponders.

You don't need to go through the Autoresponder Madness course before this one... Although I have received great value from both... This course is stand alone in the fact that the types of stories you learn about here will work at all levels of your content marketing and your copywriting, not just in your email autoresponders (but it will help those, too!)

If there was a 'secret weapon' for some of the best marketers out there, it is effective storytelling and you can learn how to become a great storyteller here.

#7 - Webinars with Russell Brunson's Perfect Webinar Course

Russell Brunson is a great marketer and potentially one of his greatest contributions to the marketing world is his Perfect Webinar system and scripts.

For anyone doing webinars, this is the 'must have' course that will lay out a very specific script, setup and close that creates amazing conversions on live webinars.

Personally, I have purchased to this course now and am studying it because my wife and I plan to being offering webinars here in the near future. With that said, I have very good friends in several different niches who are using this exact system and script with amazing results.

Webinars are best for selling products valued at $300 to $1000 and they have resulted in one of the most powerful leaps forward in marketing in a long time. It combines the power of platform selling with the ease of the web and results in a powerful experience for your visitors and often generates a significantly higher conversion rate than a traditional sales letter or video sales letter.

The feedback you are able to get in the comments section during the webinar also allows you the ability to tweak your approach, handle objections and adjust your product as needed, in real time, further helping you increase conversions through webinars.  Learn more about how to run profitable webinars, here.

Hello Miles
Thank you for what you are doing here. All your posts are great and the information is really good and easy to understand! There are not lots of people out there coming over like you do!
I was in the LFP team as you and did go on with MDM and Mike spend to me the network marketing world.
I had a longer stop just reading a lot and getting more information like maybe all beginner as well a bit finding excuses...As well running my actual business is costing lot of time.
However i decided to start now, really start building my online business. No more excuses!
I guess soon or later you too will offer some complete course like Mike or Todd, but i can´t wait.. So i just hope you can help me to decide.
As i see you have changed from Mike´s tool list and gone over to Thrives and Active Campaign (is click funnel definitely out for you?) and i was wondering what you think the best option would be to start from zero building the funnel. With your experience now. This is not about a dollar more or less, it it about starting in the best way without loosing more time and having the best system in place.
Would you suggest me Mike or Todd? My focus will be on hospitality industry, languages, travelling..
I will really appreciate your help!
Thanks
Marco

    Thanks for the comment Marco! I have gotten completely off of click funnels at this point, and do recommend WordPress with Thrive. You can see the numbers and more of the "why" here : http://www.milesbeckler.com/choose-your-marketing-funnel-platform/

    The ability to have a content marketing platform and efficient funnel all in one is the ultimate reason that thrive is winning.

Hi Miles, I just found your site this morning when looking for reviews on the downsides to clickfunnels, and then just so happened to listen to Mike Dillard's webinar this lunchtime and couldn't believe that you were mentioned - what synchronicity! I was just wondering why List Grow is not on your list here as a recommended course. I signed up to it on the webinar, then explored some more of your content and was surprised to see it wasn't listed. Also wondering if you ever intend to do a program / videos on exactly how you got your whole Thrive set up working?

Thanks
Charlotte

Reply
    Miles says April 17, 2017

    Thanks for the question and for the comment Charlotte... Fun to hear about that synchronicity.

    The one reason Mike Dillard's course is not on that list is because of how advanced it is and how 'difficult' it was to implement everything. I feel like a lot of people who find my content could interpret that as a simple 'make money online' and for the right people it can truly be that...

    But it takes so much to create a funnel, create a membership, create the VSLs and upsells, then to market it... Simply out of reach for most people.

    That said, for people who have membership programs up and running who want to implement a solid funnel to take it to the next level, it is perfect. I just don't have that many people in my audience at that phase.

    I have been thinking a lot about recording how to get Thrive all setup... Since I'm not really looking to build a new funnel or a new site, that'd be hours of work in a direction that doesn't track where I'm going right now... Plus more copywriting and it 'feels' a lot like work (since a lot of that is what I'm doing in my business already) I suppose eventually I'll suck it up and make it happen, just been too busy to put the thought into it, up until this point.

Miles, your content on youtube is great! I'm new to the online world. I want to create online courses in a particular area. I am busy developing material - your video on youtube was great on picking a niche. I was set on selecting using click funnels or lead pages as i don't know how to build a website on wordpress..it seems quite complicated and i can't afford a developer at this point in time. I have some money saved but don't have thousands needed to hire a pro. After hearing your view on wordpress and using thrive themes, my question is, is there a thrive "template" or theme to host online courses? Is it easy to use for a person with no tech background at all? Thanks for the insight!

Reply
    Miles says April 17, 2017

    Lyle, thanks for your comment!

    Thrive is indeed a 'template' but we call them 'themes' in WordPress. It is relatively easy to setup and if you have challenges, you can hire someone for CHEAP to help you get it working right... If you wanted someone else to setup your entire Thrive site and funnel for you, I would expect it to cost less than $100...

    But for someone new, it could be done in a weekend for sure... I cover the 'how to' a bit more here: http://www.milesbeckler.com/choose-your-marketing-funnel-platform/

    I will be making some videos on this very soon...

Miles,
I stumbled on your videos looking for ways to do facebook ads, i have enjoyed the content and the simplicity that your site is and also the great tools for getting a site and or blog up and running for low cost by following the steps outlined. I have enjoyed The Authority Site System and the podcast, will be getting their system to get a profitable site up.

I have looked into and wasted money on other programs and felt like Most affiliate marketers give enough information to get you to buy then leave you hanging. Your content and the content from The Authority Site System has been awesome!! Can't wait to dive into facebook ads on Jason Hornungs system. Your blog and tools that you have found, i know i will make money online!!

Looking forward to more videos!!

    Right on Kevin! The guys at TASS are on top of it... I rarely find trainings that actually give me actionable items, but they DELIVER for sure! There is soooo much noise in the internet marketing world and so many over-hyped courses that under deliver... I wanted to share the few that I actually got value from because I know many people want to invest in their growth and development but don't trust the bazillion sales pitches out there.

Miles, can you update us with your SINGLE BEST recommendation for a Facebook Ads course? Many of us don't know enough about Facebook ads to differentiate between a quality course and a clever sales pitch. So we actually need your help with this (and an affiliate link).

PS: I'm personally using all the same tools you are (thrive themes, thrive cart, active campaign, etc...) if that influences your decision at all.

      So I'm confused by your reply here that you do not love ANY FB courses. Is it simply Facebook Ad IQ Academy is out of date because of how fast FB changes?

I will surely be able to take my product to the world that way. It's taken me 4 yrs to produces 200k in sales I bet I can cut that in half with my new business approach of taking my successful physical products digital.

    The IQ Academy has the most up to date and recent profitability scaling content focusing on how to leverage manual bidding (what I'm going through now, personally) and also there is an entire section about crafting great ads focused on the different ad types... So the content you are looking for is definitely in the IQ Academy.

    Also, if you haven't been doing anything with messenger ads and have a product/service that lends itself to that type of advertising, that could be HUGE for you and the IQ Academy is the only one of the two that teaches messenger ads.

Hi Miles, my daughter and I are preparing to launch a shopify store. We care completely new at this and we are weakest where it matters most, FaceBook Ads, and how to effectively kickoff our campaigns to drive sales. Honestly, there is so much garbage shit out there that we don't know what is good advice and what is not. Also, it seems that everyone and their mother is selling a facebook ads course, but none of them really seem to hit the mark. I am done with wasting money and time. What honest recommendations can you make that will help us finally learn the business of facebook marketing so that we can be successful and scale up from there? Also, thanks for your youtube videos. Great stuff!

    Miles says October 7, 2017

    Hey Felix, I know what you are saying about "everyone and their mother is selling a Facebook ads course" I've probably spent over 10 grand in Facebook add courses over the years and most of them are rubbish. The Ad IQ course I mention here on the recommended courses (http://www.milesbeckler.com/fb) is still my top recommendation for two reasons...

    #1 - It is the newest and most updated course available. Many of those courses you're seeing around were created six months to a year ago… And in Facebook advertising time, that's like 10 years old! Max, the creator of the course, is still adding new content and does live question and answer sessions every Friday! As Facebook continues to evolve, the content for the course continues to evolve and that is super important.

    #2 - Max absolutely dominates with Shopify! This is more of a benefit for you than it is for me since I don't actually use Shopify. He has built and run ads to more than one successful Shopify store, so he's a much better "trailblazer" in that area than I could ever be. Some of the "Power Tools training" in the course show how to turn Shopify into some pretty fancy funnels which in my opinion is required to be successful with Facebook ads. Driving traffic from Facebook to a generic Shopify store, homepage, or product landing page is never going to convert as well as a direct response based funnel… Which is what he shows how to set up in the course.

    In all honesty, I think the courses even better for people using Shopify! And I've received a great deal of value from the course for my info product business!

Hey Miles, I love your honesty and in depth videos. I have three questions. What is your opinion of Inbox blueprint? I noticed your recommended courses didn't include list grow, how come? Finally, what program(s) would you recommend for newbies to build a long lasting online business? Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Miles says October 18, 2017

    Inbox Blueprint is WAY OVERPRICED! The entire course is this... Build a landing page, grow a list, email list repeatedly. I don't trust anything from Lurn, but Anik's webinars do convert...

    List grow didn't make the cut because I believe it is too difficult for most people... The only reason we were so successful with it is because we had a membership program already and just laid his funnel on top of it. This post covers the basic idea: https://www.milesbeckler.com/six-figure-membership-funnel-hack/

    Authority Hacker is the course I recommend... They teach how to build authority sites that create long-term results. They cover the ideas that are in Inbox Blueprint but go 10x deeper. And interesting timing, they are closing the doors on their last enrollment of new students today in a few hours: http://www.milesbeckler.com/authority

Miles, Just finished the video DIY Video last night and may I say it was OUTSTANDING!!!! Not just because you went thru it so anyone can follow. But because the communication skills you have developed really makes listening enjoyable. So while the time was 1:26 minutes it actually took me between 3-4 hours to go thru. Because I would stop take notes then sometimes back it up to confirm something I thought I missed. So the 3-4 hour statement is not a complaint. Its more of an affirmation on the quality of information you provided and my desire to GET IT RIGHT!!!!! lol

So my personality type is being a perfectionist and sometimes in the past it has stopped me from ever getting started. Now I can admit this is one of my biggest faults.

SO.... that being said.... here is my questions?

1) I have a business that does not sell products it is a niche market in real estate. I know there is a need for this and since I am not selling them products do I need to go much further than DIY video 1 video?

2) My perfectionism is wanting me to have all the answers upfront. I'm potentially interested in your courses but my second question is will your courses help me with my service business?

3)With all the free video's you have put out is there any particular order you would recommend?

Thank you and tremendously grateful for your knowledge

    Miles says November 2, 2017

    Cheers Russ... Here are my answers!

    1- DIY 1 is the key because you are probably going to do more lead gen than anything else. That is enough to get you going!

    2- I hear you with perfectionism and wanting to know everything before starting... But that is not possible. The path to the top is winding and has forks in the road that you will navigate... But you must take those first steps and get momentum going (and understanding about these first steps) before those options/choices in the future will make sense. It is ok, to start building your foundation now and know you can adapt/adjust your skyscraper on that foundation as needed. Nothing online is permanent, everything is editable or modifiable as you get more info and more insights to what works and what doesn't. You don't exactly know what will compel your target market to action, so you have to test things to find what works (not sit in a lab and plan it all out)!

    3- Figure out how you are going to create content consistently, moving forward... Are you a video friendly person? Are you a writer? Doing content marketing is key to build your audience https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ay5dw8DAUys

    And Email marketing!!! Because once they opt in you need to build a relationship and tell stories that help them (your subscribers) understand how you can help without you pitching them- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWAXJD-dP4Y

I am a graphic designer, I major in logo design...But I want to leave the world of graphic as a designer to client.

2. please can you name a membership software below 100$ that I can use to host some course...maybe I can get some money through that.

Thanks for considering it anyhow. Have a wonderful day.

Miles, I appreciate all of your content. I have a business website that is not a blog. I'm in the tour business and I have a SquareSpace site. What can I do for SEO if I don't have a blog and I'm not on WordPress? I have been told that high-quality backlinks are the way to go. However, I'm worried that if I get a ton of backlinks in a short period of time that Google might penalize my site. Any thougths, suggestions.

Reply
    Miles says January 18, 2018

    First off, move your site to WordPress and you will be on a better platform! 30% of all businesses run on WordPress... You should too! Also, backlinks are not a solution... That is a black-hat tactic that can cause big problems.

Hi Miles,

I'm working on an authority site and I've recently purchased the Authority Hacker course for stage 1 sites. They recommend using ahref's (at least for a short while) to get information on keyword research and to see what our competitors are doing. I've watched your YouTube 'SEO training course'. Do you think I should pay the $99/month (short term or long term) or do you think just using KW Finder is enough. Thanks!

Reply
    Miles says January 24, 2018

    Definitely do the trial of Ahrefs and go DEEP in their tool while you have free access... This is what I've done and I've never felt like I needed it around monthly, personally. But some people love the tool and swear by it. So test it out, get tons of data and if you love it, keep it... If you have enough data to keep you busy for your first couple months (which you should easily be able to get) then you are good to start taking action without a big monthly expense!

Hello Miles ,
I have been listening to yours youtube videos and learning from the info that you share through them . The way you cover them and pace are really nice and easy to grasp but regarding the Million Dollars Business Blue Print I have to apologize for my request as I didn't find the answer that I would like to have . I like your working style and am after turning my Shopify store into a successful e-commerce business. I am not trying to be rude just trying to see if I can afford to be able to join your MDBB complete program. Would you have a summary of the full course program and what I will get from each segment showing the total fee to enroll on it and benefiting from your experience and knowledge?
I am interested but I want to ensure I can afford it but also and that I will have the support said when doubts arise and they will .

    I'll probably be dropping videos on the FB ad manager as soon as it updates for me, haven't seen it rolled out on my end yet...

    Influencer marketing can be a HUGE opportunity for you!!!! Lots of yogis on IG with big audiences, but lots of fake followers there, too... A bit of a minefield, but if you find the real-deal folks who have honest and engaged audiences, it can be a great option.

    Nothing worse than a new yoga mat that smells like a chemical factory for weeks on end... #BeenThere #DoneThat

Hi Miles

Great work and pleased for you and your partner Melanie. My angel I have his card in my car is Metatron & healings regularly from Archangel Michael. I have been learning to build my own Websites (used free Sydney theme & added their Child theme) after having many extensive quotes and not getting any where. I have found out why they are so costly in terms of their time. Coming in the back-end has a better 'ownership'of my content & like you dislike writing LOL but do it. Watched your https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsUNFZhqkEA&list=PL0sOKzn__yK3iOONk6-QP0Se2G23ZcuWL on funnelling and not sure if I am at that stage yet. On this Utube you went through the whole - you made mention of friends webinar and you listed it underneath as I tried to have a look at it. When I clicked on it you shifted it from the Thank You video. I was interested in it - as it probably outlines my current journey position - just need to build the organic traffic first - developing an eBook on my head & heart model etc. I really appreciate your advice and direction. Kind regards Mark

Miles,

Really great content and outstanding presentations. I am having trouble designing a plan that works for my type of business, which is vacation rentals in the Caribbean. Since the big online vacation websites changed their models from subscription (the more you pay the better placement you get) to algorithms based on bookings, I am down more than 50% and am having difficulty reaching my market and getting conversions. I have over 10,000 FB followers and 5,000 e-mails, but conversions are tough since these are high-end rentals ($2,500 - $4,500/week) that involve planning with other people, i.e. family, friends, etc. Funnels and webinars don't seem to be a good fit since instant decisions can't be made by any one person, like the person watching).

Any ideas how I can best promote to the 40+ age group who likes to travel? Please point me in the right direction.

Mike

Hi Miles - thanks for the recommendations. I've been following and implementing using your content and am immensely grateful for your advice and tutelage.

One quick question I'm hoping you could weigh in on. I've been exploring Todd Brown's stuff and am seeing his E5 Camp course coming highly recommended from many in the IM space. Do you know how much this differs from his Six Figure Funnels course? It looks like E5 is a greater $ investment but curious on your thoughts.

    Miles says July 7, 2018

    Honestly, his EE five program is definitely the evolution that came out of the six-figure funnel formula and it really is a groundbreaking course. I literally have not gotten around to updating this page… But believe the E5 course deserves the spot, not the 6FFF. Have you seen his free training yet?

Hi Miles,
Just found your YouTube channel and loving your content and delivery. Just had a quick question in relation to one of the courses you are recommending - E 5 C.A.M.P Would this program suit an affiliate marketer or is it more aimed at product owners? I am promoting digital evergreen affiliate offers as an affiliate. Thanks in advance for taking the time with my question and thanks for the great content that you create.

Reply
    Miles says July 26, 2018

    it is definitely geared towards people who write their own sales copy, but as an affiliate marketer if your building email lists and working to really keep yourself as their trusted advisor it could definitely bring you lots of value.

    Two of his main ideas are the unique mechanism and the big idea… Affiliate marketers who get these concepts dialed in right crush it. It's actually the only way you can stand out as an affiliate marketer, especially if you're in a crowded space like fitness or weight loss or make money.

    After seeing Todd speak live, I created this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjkEJk-p_vw you may get a little value out of it.

    All in all… Is it required for an affiliate marketer to become successful? No. Could it be your competitive advantage over all the other affiliates? Yes. Are you ever going to offer your own products?

    another option would be to track down a copy of Eugene Schwartz book "breakthrough advertising" it usually costs a few hundred dollars and it's a bit more "old-school" but it covers a lot of the same ideas… I think Todd's version of them are absolutely dialed for Internet marketers.

Hello. I see that you don't update your blog too often. I

But did you know that there is a tool that allows
you to create new articles using existing content
(from article directories or other websites from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new posts are unique and pass the copyscape test.
