Mike Vestil claims to be the so-called “Mad Scientist” when it comes to making passive income online. Because he said that he has tried most of them, from affiliate marketing to dropshipping, and even others like blogging. Because his goal was to achieve that elusive financial freedom. And now that he had been experiencing it, he claims that he also wants others to experience that very same freedom that he’s achieved, through his Internet Lifestyle Academy. The question now is if this one’s the right training program for you, so let’s go further into this Mike Vestil review to find out.
As far as online presence is concerned, Mike Vestil isn’t someone that you can underestimate. His YouTube channel has a rather great amount of followers to speak of (around 460k as of the time of this writing), and his Instagram account‘s follower account isn’t too far off, either. Thus, it’s safe to say that his online presence is quite strong.
But his beginnings are also humble. Before he was this successful digital entrepreneur, he was working as a dental assistant for 8-12 hours a day. It was during this time that he hit a realization: What’s the point of making all this money if he doesn’t have enough time to spend it?
Fortunately, he met a mentor who showed him how to create a side hustle with a blog, and all other forms of different internet businesses. The teachings that he learned from his mentor now form the foundation of what could be his most well-known online course right now: The Internet Lifestyle Academy.
The Internet Lifestyle Academy basically seems to reflect Mike Vestil‘s perceived versatility when it comes to being a digital entrepreneur. Because covers, not just one, not even two, but three topics correspond to the three different methods of how you can make money online.
The first part of the course deals entirely with dropshipping. Here, you’ll learn how you can set up your online dropshipping business using Shopify, and how you can look for the best place to source your products using AliExpress. Once you’ve set up your store, you’ll then be taught how to use Facebook paid ads to promote your product. The dropshipping course also contains a lesson on how you can use Instagram and influencer marketing to promote your store.
The second part of this course is roughly the same as the first one, but this time, it focuses on finding your product sources from within the U.S. (this means you won’t use AliExpress at all). It’s said here that U.S. suppliers can offer new opportunities for dropshippers because the shipping time for your products will be a lot faster, though it might mean that your products may be priced a bit higher due to the cost of the materials. Instead of Facebook ads, however, this part now teaches you on using Google Ads (specifically, Google Adwords) as a recommendation because they enable you to target specific locations easily.
It should be noted, however, that the Google Adwords part of this lesson is outdated now because Google has updated the platform a lot since then.
The final part of the Internet Lifestyle Academy course now deals with how you can earn passive income by blogging and affiliate marketing. One thing I like about this part is that, instead of paid ads, this section teaches you how you can generate free and organic traffic for your blog. This means you’ll have topics like how to research for topics to write about, how to conduct effective keyword research, how to write an article/produce a video, and all of them are needed with the end goal of driving traffic and leads to your blog and affiliate links.
Overall, the price of the Internet Lifestyle Academy is $497. And although it looks impressive because it covers several methods on how you can make money online, ultimately, it falls short on its comprehensiveness. Its attempt to tackle several subjects at once means that the educational quality here is spread too thin. Thus, what you can learn here about affiliate marketing, blogging, and dropshipping may barely scratch the surface of what you need to know about these business models. It’s a good purchase if you want to have a crash course about how you can make money online, but in the end, it’s not really worth it, as there are other, easier, yet much more profitable online businesses methods out there.
