Admittedly Neil Patel is one of the respected and trusted names in internet marketing. Unfortunately, all the trust he has earned over years is now being dented by his recently launched Traffic University, popularly known as Traffic U. Having been both a follower and subscriber to one of his blogs – Quick Sprout, l naturally jumped on the gravy train in order to learn how to drive tonnes of traffic to my website.
Quick Sprout or Traffic University Review.
The Traffic University was launched by Neil Patel supposedly as a low cost training on how to drive traffic to your website. l do not doubt, Patel’s capability to teach website marketing skills after his great achievements with Yahoo, Techcrunch, Mazda, Microsoft to name a few.
Once you have happily paid your $47/month subscription you will get access to 5 minute videos unfortunately made by the less known Brian Dean on:
- SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).
- Link Building
- Content Marketing
- Social Media
- Paid Advertising
- Email Marketing
- Reputation Management
- Conversion Optimization
After being schooled at Wealthy Affiliate University for Free on the above subjects, l really felt humiliated to watch such ‘Internet newbie marketing training’ worse still after parting with my hard earned $47. l could have alternatively done a better job in driving traffic to my website using Google paid ads or even promoting my page on Facebook for the same amount. Traffic University is a total rip off.
How much you pay to join Quick Sprout U.
You will pay $47/ month to access the above videos that Neil Patel delegated someone to develop by rehashing information from his blogs. After watching all the videos it literally means that you are paying your monthly subscription to watch the promised additional 5-10 minute videos.
You can also become a life-time member by paying a once off $97. This was introduced after too many Quick Sprout complaints.
Are these prices consistent with Patel’s promise of low cost training? Indeed Quick Sprout Traffic U training content is cheap but NOT the price.
Advantages and Disadvantages of joining Quick Sprout University;
- If you want to get ideas on how to design a nice looking website, Traffic U is the website to visit.
- There is no training by Neil Patel himself inside his own University.
- Besides the good looks of the website there is nothing to write home about there are Free YouTube videos with better content than this.
- There is no indication on where to start your training.
- There is no access to the promised webners.
- There is no established method on how to get your money back from Traffic University.
- The short videos are too shallow and there is nowhere to ask questions.
- Traffic U is overpriced for a mere collection of short videos.
- The training is not supported in anyway – its like Patel hired a freelancer (Brian Dean) to create videos, pulled them together and he secured their access.
Quicksprout Traffic System.
Of course Neil Patel succeeded in increasing Tech Crunch’s traffic, but can the same method work for an affiliate marketing beginners?
That is a big NO!
The Quick Sprout Traffic System claims to teach any one how to generate traffic to their websites using social media and Google traffic. Unfortunately, all honest Quicksprout University Reviews think otherwise. The system did not help them significantly increase their traffic – an absolute scam.
Neil Patel SEO content marketing and email marketing guide, is just another crap you can find else where for free online. We al know how difficult it is rank websites in Google, especially now the new Google knowledge box is further pushing down websites ranking for organic searches.
Dodge the bullet by not joining Quick Sprout Traffic System.
In conclusion, Quick Sprout Traffic System is a rip off at its best and a scam at its worst. Neil Patel’s free blog posts have better content when compared to the university. My advice to Neil is to leave proven internet universities do the teaching while you concentrate on your high market clients such as Walmart. You have put your reputation online by betraying the trust of your blog followers and email subscribers. Like most scams it provides short term quick returns and but a disaster in making in the long run.
