Product: Rapid Profit Ninja
Owner: Art Flair
This course is all about selling graphic designs you create for free through Canva on freelance platforms like Fiverr and Upwork. If you are a newbie to freelancing, you could use this training to get started as there is some good material. That said, there are some drawbacks to consider.
I received an email about this the other day and decided to see what all the fuss was about.
This product was launched by Art Flair in November of 2016 and claims to help people make $80-$100 per day in as little as 30 minutes per day.
Bold claim. Let's see how it stacks up...
What Is Rapid Profit Ninja?
It's a full blown scam! No, not really, but I couldn't resist 🙂
It's a 27 page PDF and 7 videos on how to make money freelancing on Fiverr, UpWork or any other platform. More specifically, it's about creating basic images using free images and a free service called Canva. I love Canva and I use it myself on this site and other sites almost every day. It's a great little tool to create custom images and you don't have to pay for anything if you don't want to.
This is absolutely a legit way to make money and the prospect of making 100 bucks per day is realistic. But... it will take longer than 30 minutes per day until you are into the swing of things and it's just like any business. It takes work.
When you first buy the product you are taken through the usual set of upsells. In this case there were 3 in total and if you skip them, the price reduces which is pretty standard. Cool to know though if you aren't aware, whenever you see an upsell, simply skip it and chances are the price will be reduced on the next page. The perks of having been through a gazillion sales funnels!
- Upsell 1 ($17.87): Traffic tips
- Upsell 2 ($27): Some kind of done for you package and a case study
- Upsell 3 ($197): Personal mentoring and coaching
Training Overview | PDF
Art instructs you to go through the PDF first so you know what the training is about. If you are like me you probably would've rather watched the videos but you will hopefully stop yourself from being lazy and read it. It is worth it!
Granted, the first 5 pages are fluff and all about Art himself which I skipped but the rest contained some very useful insights on getting started with Fiverr. He uses that platform as an example because that's where he made the bulk of his money. Fair enough. I did think the tips he gave were useful for newbies and I even picked a few things up myself since I haven't sold anything on Fiverr before.
Training Overvuew | Videos
As mentioned, there are 7 videos in the course which run on from the PDF and I'll give you some insight into what they contain below.
Video #1: This video was pretty much running through the system and showing you how to use Canva.
Video #2: Art runs through some of the other freelance platforms you can leverage.
Video #3: You are shown 4 alternate platforms to use if Canva isn't your thing.
Video #4: From this video forward, these videos are actually classed as 'bonus' material. To be honest, I'm glad he included these because the video training would've been way too thin. It turns out these are actually videos from an old course he created called "Clever Fiver Profits". Some may understandably be pissed that he is re-hashing old content, but I haven't used that course and I'm glad it's there. Anyway, this video is about getting started with Fiverr, some useful tips to get rolling and he shows you an example gig.
Video #5: In this video Art talks all about the importance of choosing categories and explains the process of doing this. He also says he uses images of cute girls for his gigs because they convert better. Makes sense. He then shows you an example of setting up your first gig. Step by step.
Video #6: Art talks about the importance of getting good reviews and building your reputation as a seller. When you are first starting out, this can be tough because people are a lot less inclined to buy from someone who doesn't have any reviews or very few. So, he shows you a method of getting positive reviews. Basically, you join his FB group and buy other members gigs and give them a positive review and they do the same for you. It's not a bad way to go but it could get very costly very quickly.
Video #7: This was probably the best video of the bunch because it gives some of the insights you can use to create success as a newbie.
The first thing Art shows you is a highly profitable niche to crack into and what is making people good money right now, social media. He shows you a platform where you can 'like to get likes' and once you've racked up a set amount of credits, you can sell people likes on Fiverr and use your credits you've earned to deliver on the gig. If that makes sense lol. This could be pretty time consuming and in my opinion, a pretty useless product. But hey, if people are buying then you can make money selling. The cool thing is you could buy these 'like credits' and put some cream on the top so you don't even need to work to deliver this. If you can get people buying from you, you can make money with this no doubt.
The second and third sections of the video is about optimising your account and gigs to get ranked higher in the Fiverr search results and other optimisation tips. He also talks about the importance of offering a 24 hour delivery window and offering more value than your competition. This is good advice.
What I Liked
- Good amount of trainign for beginners Fiverr freelancers
- Some worthwhile insights and tips on getting better results
- Very low price
- Not a huge amount of hype
What I Didn't Like
- Saying you can just start making $100 per day in 30 minutes from newbie is a bit of a stretch
- He should've remade the last 'bonus videos' instead of using re-hashed content. It just looks bad.
- Some 'bonuses' and the webinar registration in the members area are really just promos
For beginners looking to make money with Fiverr, it's a solid course for the price!
All things considered I'm happy to say this is legit and probably worth the 7 bucks. Like any business though, it will take time to learn and build your business. Nothing is ever push button easy so don't be fooled by anyone saying it is. I'm not saying Art did that but take the marketing with a grain of salt.
While it's not my top recommended way to build an online business, if you apply yourself and take action, there's no doubt this can work for you. Hope this helps!
