Quick Start Challenge Overview

A bit hard to digest this one but the Quick Start Challenge is finally over (a newer version just re-opened here!)

Even though there won’t be any tears of joy I have to tell you that I learned quite a lot from it and I wish it lasted a bit longer.

If you’ve read my review, Dean’s Challenge was only four weeks long and even though it felt like just one week to me, I learned quite a lot of things.

If you’re just getting started, this training is going to take you by the hand and leave you with a blog, traffic and subscribers willing to opt-in to your lead capture form.

If you’re already a bit more advanced marketer, meaning that you already have your blog up and running, already know how to drive traffic and getting constant subscribers, you can still learn about proper organization and time management.

There are some amazing not announced surprise bonuses inside that deal a little bit more with the self help topic so if you need something of that, this has it as well. 

The Quick Start Challenge Community

I’m not sure how many we were in the whole first generation (I think this training is going to be opened again) but I counted a litte bit more than 100+ and I connected with a lot of them.

There are people that are just getting started and there are people that are already successful so there’s a wide array of levels of expertise amongst the QSC students.

QSC’s Blogroll

The main site hosts a blogroll in the sidebar with featured members and as it is dynamic, you can get exposure to other students in the training.

At first I never thought I was going to get any traffic from that but Clicky proved me wrong.

The Forum

There is a forum hosted inside the Quick Start Challenge main menu and even though it is small (we’re a bit more than 100+ students so far I think) the forum is pretty active and it’s starting to get more active with time.

The Facebook Group

The facebook group has a LOT of activity.

Many members share their tips over there and are constantly supporting each other.

I’m not a big fan of Facebook but I do check in with the group from time to time and I can tell you that place is growing really fast now.

The Skype Group

Just as the Facebook Group, the Skype Group has been growing a lot lately.

This was created almost since the beginning (facebook group was created last) and there’s a major buzz going on almost at all times in here.

The Training

I’ll be super brief with this (I can’t type too much lately, read my previous posts)

Week 1 is all about creating your blog and learning how to plan your week’s activities and more important… sticking to them!

Week 2 is about driving traffic. I have to say I knew both strategies already but I never knew how important was one of them. My traffic has definitely increased in the past days.

Week 3 is about list building. How can you get started, what to do if you don’t have anything to offer and many more tips.

Week 4 is all about taking action. Understanding the power behind automated campaigns and living the instant Internet Lifestyle.

Your Assignments

As I already said, the training is divided into four sections corresponding to each week.

You’re given assignments on each week that you need to complete in order to be able to follow through with the rest of the training and at least on my generation, there was a few $5K prizes (high level coaching) for the people that did an amazing job on each of the challenges presented.

A video speaks more than a 1,000 words so let’s see if that’s true.

Conclusion

If you’re a seasoned marketer, already have a blog, building your list and making some money, maybe this won’t be the best course for you.

However if you’re a long-term newbie, have a blog but don’t have the right direction or aren’t sure of what to do next, then this is definitely going to help you out.

Hope you liked my short testimonial!

    Hi Sergio
    I see you finally managed to complete the video – and even though I have only “known” you for four weeks or so,even in that time I have seen a difference in you. This QSC Action taking process is obviously suiting you.
    Can’t wait to see what is happening tomorrow!

    Great summary of the challenge Sergio
    Its true that some people just dont take action – but they wont be getting the traffic and living the internet lifestyle!

    You are certainly someone that takes action – I think you would be a great mentor yourself!

    The traffic to your site speaks for itself!

      Thank you Kay!

      I don’t know if I could be a mentor to someone but I surely know a lot about blogs and technical stuff, now I need to sort out the making money part and who knows, maybe I’ll turn myself into a coach soon!

      Thanks for stopping by and the kind comment, have a great day! ;-)

    Hi Sergio

    Community is a powerful thing, and I’m sure you’re now seen as a mentor figure to some of those who were just starting out.

    are you using a plugin for your youtube videos? This is what I use, you just add a v to the link and it adds it to the right place.

    Great to see you doing more promotions and pre-warming the list about bonuses.

      Hey Andrew,

      Thank you for the youtube tip, I’m going to try that one out since the one I’m using is giving me a lot of headaches lately.

      The review is already published, it’s a Michael Cheney’s product but I’ve decided to take the bonuses down, I can’t offer my time in exchange for a tiny commission, I don’t know what I was thinking. ;-)

    Hey Sergio

    Great testimonial my friend! It sounds like a course I would find useful. I had a look but it’s still closed at the minute so I’ll keep an eye out for it re-opening.

      Hey Tim, thank you!

      Yeah, it’s been closed and I don’t know if it’s going to be re-opened but there are rumors that doors are opening for a second generation soon so stay put!

      Thanks for stopping by Tim, talk soon! ;-)

    Hey Sergio,
    I’ve got a great deal of respect for Dean and I’m ashamed to admit that this latest venture of his went under my radar and I missed it (whcih is strange since I should be on his list). In many respects I’m glad that I missed it since the last thing that I need is another forum, facebook group and skype group to hang out in!
    Take Care,
    Rich

      Haha Rich, I know exactly what you mean man.

      It’s obvious that these resources are just optional to participate in but you’re right anyway…

      When you have a lot of trainings and are not able to follow through with anything, you’ll be better working with what you have instead of getting distracted jumping from course to course.

      Hope you’re doing good man and thanks for stopping by, talk soon! ;-)

    Yo bro Sergio!
    Another great review! You’re right this course is not the best for those who already have the information on how to build a blog, build list, get traffic or make money.

    But if you already have the knowledge BUT your blog is still like a ghost town (LIKE MINE WAS :) ), I think this course is great to at least to make your blog look alive.

    I believe things happen for a reason and you can always find something to learn from.
    As for me, it’s really EMBARRASSING to have all this knowledge yet, a newbie’s blog has more interactions and getting more traffics than mine!

    I also noticed someone who wasn’t really excited about QSC because this person already know the information and make some money, yet when I looked at his blog, his blog is NOT SO GREAT.

    I think it depends on your goals. I want to be an authority figure for my niche and I want to actually see who will get the benefit from my service or products improved. I want people to come to my blog and get inspired to take actions to improve their lives and make a change in their lives or change the world! And Dean’s course is the right course for me :)

    See ya later bro! Take care.

      Thanks Chetz,

      I’m pretty sure you’ll be a rockstar very soon and I wish you all the best in your IM career, you have what it takes so just keep pushing forward! ;-)

    I think that many QSC students were in similar circumstances, they had bought loads of products and WSOs but were still not going anywhere. Dean Holland’s QSC course has got everyone taking action and hopefully now moving in the right direction.

    Best wishes.

      Hey Rose, Dean Holland’s course had everything from newbies to some advanced people, the trick is to keep yourself in constant motion.

      Everyone talks about “taking action” but taking action can be easily misunderstood, taking action is not watching a video or making a new friend on twitter or facebook, taking action is getting things done amongst many other activities.

      I hope you are on the right track and if you ever need any help, just come over and give me a shout, take care and good luck Rose.

      Thanks for stopping by! ;-)
