Is this worth trying, they have a 2 day event in melbourne in october, they also offer courses for $4000 that almost guarantee you will make your money back.

Alternatively they have a online course.

Worth trying or just crap?

I have bought their $4000 dollar course and you can learn all they are teaching from ebay themselves or by using forums or searching for the topic you are interested in,I also joined them as a jv partner for $17,000 which promised a we will stick with you until you are making money policy but as they became more successful i was passed onto one of their junior staff members and was left high and dry with no refund or return on any of my money.You are better off spending your money on a sale hoo store as I have found them to be more helpful and i also have bought course from the co founder mark ling.The customer service is the best you will find anywhere on the net.

@T0pSales: I agree with our new member, robertson27 :) All the online and offline courses basically promise the same thing, that you will conquer the market and easily gain your money back. BUT many of them don't get close to fulfilling anything at all.

But if you've got $4K to spare go for it, we could be wrong (you know).

Personally, I am quite happy with SaleHoo and the other online forums that I regularly visit.

When I started working for SaleHoo, I had no clue about anything regarding wholesale or online selling. I basically learned by reading the posts of many of our master members like Marc (fudjj), planes, userexists and fm1234 to name a few. Also, by diligently going through every bit of training material found on SaleHoo :)

@robertson27: Welcome to our community! THANKS for your compliments! At SaleHoo, we always do our best to help out all our members.

Cheers :)

Good Lord, send me four grand. I have twenty years sales experience, fifteen of which has targeted online markets, and operate a six-figure sales operation on eBay. I would cheerfully coach you for a weekend for that kind of money, and I'm hella fun to hang out with.

Honestly, anyone selling these types of courses for these absurd amounts of cash is selling you a dream, one that isn't worth anything!

People have been selling snake oil for a very long time, the product changes, but the theory behind it never does. Dodge the snake oil, take the 4k and pour it into the right stock and you will be light years ahead of where these idiots will get you if you spent it with them.

This isn't magic, there aren't hidden secrets that a lucky few can unlock for thousands of dollars. It all comes down to knowing your business, putting good basic business principals to work and then building on that to create ongoing success.

These guys make their money from selling dreams, then when the dream crashes they are no where to be seen!

Sorry to read of your experience robertson27, and sadly it's an experience that I've read from other members before. It's nice to have you on board, and it's great that you are happy to share that experience, and save others the suffering.

Cheers

I have also signed up for this. I was only thinking the other day
that I can learn this exact same stuff online for free.
I wonder if I will get my money back, I hope so.

Hi and welcome to SaleHoo couchie :)

Uh-oh... I do hope you can get your money back. If you paid with your credit card you can do a chargeback now just contact your credit card company.

Another reason you should not fall for these expensive courses is that learning to a continuous process and the information or processes involved evolve everyday.

Its just a matter of setting a side time to do your own research and a lot of reading.

I would suggest starting with your bonus guides in Link hidden: Login to view

Hope this helps.

Hi Richelle,

No I actually had to get a loan though the finance company
that they use. By the time I have finished paying for it, it will
have cost me $8,000.

I have asked for a refund, but I am not able to at this time, I have
to go though all the steps that they teach, and then if I am still not
making any money or made my money back, they will pay me back
double. Apparently that is there moto.

My fault for getting sucked in I suppose. Damn shame as the wet season
is now starting and we will be out of work. That is why I started this to try
and have a income though our Queensland wet season.

Hi couchie,

Thanks for sharing how it's going for you :)

So like how long do you have to try it out before you can actually file a claim for refund if the program does not work (unfortunately). Usually programs like these have a specified period for when you can achieve your target.

I do hope it works out for you! Personally wish you all the best :)

Cheers
