The Bring the Fresh Program (an overview)
In early 2013, the founders of Bring the Fresh split up, leaving only Kelly Felix to run the operations over at Bring the Fresh (BTF). This program is one that has changed drastically over the past couple of years, changing from a membership to a one time payment (with some upsells)…and now it is a one man show with Kelly Felix, the originator of the Rich Jerk product running the operations. It is a website building software plus it includes the training that you need to build a money making, at home business without any experience, computer knowledge or marketing skills.
The software is supposed to be designed to do everything for you, simply and quickly. In addition, there are constant updates that prevent the information from growing stale and underperforming after a while. Most of these updates are timed to coincide with changes within Google.
Pros vs. Cons
- Simple software is meant to give follow the prompts, one click steps to develop a functional and attractive website.
- The program is developed to be step by step.
- Money back guarantee.
- Owners have a track record in the industry
- Most of the information is presented via webinars which have been study proven to be less effective for certain types of learners.
- There is no information of whether your lifetime access will transfer to updated programs when they are re-released or if you have to buy into a new version.
- All the necessary components of running an online business are not included with your membership
- There is little warning about the upsells that are within this program (it can be quite expensive)
- You cannot try it out for free
Who is BTF Intended for?
Bring the Fresh is meant to be step by step, easy to follow website building coupled with expert advice and webinars that teach the world of affiliate marketing. Since there is a trial period and a money back guarantee it can be investigated by virtually anyone who is interested in it. The advertising videos claim that the program can be used by anyone at any age, however it still takes some level of dedication and effort to be successful.
In saying this, if you are not prepared to work hard online, then you are definitely not going to create a business every. So the assumption that you have when you go into business is that any program that evokes the idea of “working hard to build a business” is one that shows definite signs of quality and that is the case with BTF.
What’s Included in the Tools and Training
Training comes via webinars and expert advice with Bring the Fresh. There are several tools which starts with the software that builds your website (web hosting is not included) but there are several additional tools that are suggested for your success. These include article creation and spinner tools as well as link builders. Tools that generate fresh traffic to your site are also suggested. All additional tools are optional.
To get started, you will gain automatic access to the Fresh Start Guide as soon as your membership enrollment process has been completed. This guide (in video format) gives you all of the information that you will need to get started with Bring the Fresh. This information is updated whenever Google makes changes. An additional bonus in the form of specialized keywords is also given to those who are starting the Bring the Fresh program.
Does Bring the Fresh Offer QUALITY Support?
Support for Bring the Fresh members comes from the site directly via the customer service page. In addition, there is a Bring the Fresh forum that allows members to speak directly to one another about questions and concerns that they might have.The forum board numbers roughly
9,000 members currently.
The board is easy to follow with a title subject, the moderator, who has posted and how many replies for each. Members should not be shocked to find their posts answered by site owners directly as they do make relatively frequent appearances within the community. There is also a knowledge base that starts with FAQs but also allows for new or unique questions to be asked as well.
This sort of support is very powerful and in an industry that generally LACKS the ability to communication and get help from the community along side the founders, this is something that I commend about Bring the Fresh.
The Price – How Much Does Bring the Fresh Cost?
Bring the Fresh offers a one week trial period which costs $7 but there is an option for lifetime access which costs $37. Once you are inside there are also offers to join “private” or “exclusive” groups at an additional cost along with offers for paid products and services.
If you utilize the $89 offer you are still going to need to buy “other” services that carry monthly expenses to get your business up and running. One of the main offers being that of “Project Profits” which is also owned by Kelly Felix and which will run you another $197. Just understand this before you purchase as the $89 lifetime payment definitely DOES NOT include access to the entire system and training.
In fact, recently there have been several complaints of people getting contact by Kelly Felix and his team offering you high ticket (several $1,000’s) in mentoring packages. This is one of the most common processes going. Get someone into buying your product at $7 (low ticket), then charging them another immediate upsell…and then trying sink their teeth into your bank account with expensive mentoring. I am not a huge fan of this because I don’t feel it is being upfront with your audience, but it has almost become an expectation within the industry.
My Final Word on the Bring the Fresh Membership
To be completely honest, this is a pretty good program which has been updated several times to make adjustments for changes in the affiliate and internet marketing world. There are a number of optional tools that can be added to your basic program which might be confusing for beginners and it will lead to additional expenses (which is not advertised prior to signing up). It is probably best for those who are in unfamiliar territory to stick to the basics until they are more acclimated.
I would highly recommend that if you do join Bring the Fresh, that you stay away from the upsells and absolutely stay away from the mentoring packages that are offered if you don’t have the budget to do so. I am starting to get a lot of complaints about people that feel as though they are getting “taken” by this aspect Bring the Fresh because they buy in for $7 and that is just the start of the expensive payments they are going to try to “upsell” to you.
Overall, not a bad base program, a solid community, but the upsell style marketing tactics do definitely give this program a lower ranking.
Bring the Fresh, at a final glance…
VERDICT: LEGIT, Decent products, Good Community, but LOTS of upsells
Do you have your own review of Bring the Fresh that you would like to offer? If so, I would love to hear your personal experience of the members area and if you took advantage of any of the additional upsells. Please leave your review below, the more thorough you can be, the better. Thanks!
