REVIEW | 15 Day Challenge | Dave Sharpe | Affiliate Marketing

A few months back, David Sharpe’s name first crossed my radar within the digital marketing sphere. It came via a series of Instagram posts and YouTube videos that I’d stumbled upon. It was only recently that I made the decision to delve deeper into the world of Legendary Marketer (LM).


Honestly, it didn’t initially appeal to me.

The brand’s overall essence just didn’t align with my personal taste. It felt as though it was geared towards newcomers in search of a “golden ticket to financial freedom.”

Here’s the truth: there are no magical “BOOM” moments, quick shortcuts (well, almost none), get-rich-quick schemes, or miraculous shifts in mindset that pave the way to success.

None whatsoever.

However, a curious thing happened. I noticed that many other revered marketers were singing praises about David Sharpe’s courses and coaching.

So, I decided to embark on a comprehensive exploration of David’s offerings and quickly realized that I’d been misconstruing his expertise all along.

David possesses an in-depth knowledge of the field, and what’s more, he genuinely cares about his students and affiliates.

Indeed, Legendary Marketer’s repertoire may be oriented towards beginners, but David and his team possess a profound understanding of marketing from the ground up. They’re equally adept in the realm of coaching and consulting.

I was so impressed that I felt compelled to set the record straight with this review.

In this review, I’ll cover:

  • What is Legendary Marketer?
  • Who is Legendary Marketer for?
  • The flagship products that everyone is interested in
  • Whether or not the high-ticket products are worth the price
  • The reason this is NOT a pyramid scheme
  • Why online reviews are sometimes unfair to David
  • Legendary Marketer pricing
  • Whether or not it’s worth the price

What Is Legendary Marketer?

Legendary Marketer is a comprehensive online training university for aspiring digital entrepreneurs made up of digital courses, eBooks, one-on-one coaching, support groups, and even live networking events where students meet six and seven-figure entrepreneurs. It’s founder and CEO is David Sharpe.

The brand produces low, medium, and high-ticket training materials at all levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.

It’s one of the most comprehensive, popular, and beginner-friendly marketing academies out there.

Let me sum it up succinctly for you:

Legendary Marketer is an online community of successful affiliate and online business owners releasing training products, supporting each other, offering coaching, and networking at events. It’s not one product—it’s a suite of different products.

Why Is Legendary Marketer So Popular?

Legendary Marketer is one of the most popular online marketing training brands out there because it’s one of the only websites that offers comprehensive, entry-level training for as little as $1.99.

The Insider’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing is one of the best entry-level affiliate books I’ve ever read, and it costs less than $2.

Imagine a university that offered classes to students on everything from basic marketing right up to private masterminds with high-earning entrepreneurs, but charged as little as $2 – $7 for real courses.

Of course, the high-level training programs cost tons of money. But if you actually reach that level, you probably won’t care about the price.

Is Legendary Marketer a Scam?

No, Legendary Marketer is not a scam. I’ve been through most of the products (besides one-on-one coaching), and they are full of great info that will help you build a business.

David offers training materials, coaching, and live events to HELP YOU build a business as well as an affiliate program to help skilled marketers earn money for referrals. You have to put in the work or you’ll get nothing.

He does not promise this will make you rich or earn you anything overnight.

In fact, his disclaimer says the exact opposite:

He even says that the average affiliate income projects earn between $500 – $2000.

To me, a scam is a deceptive business that promises you the moon in an attempt to cheat you out of your money.

Legendary Marketer is NOT that. David promises comprehensive, cutting-edge training and a fair referral program. And for the most part, he delivers.

I’ll be 100% honest. I’m not a fan of some of the branding elements like “15-day business builder challenge” or the “live your dreams” vibe. But that’s far from a scam. It’s just my personal preference.

Whether some of his products are worth the big price tag is a different story. I’ll get to that further below.

Verdict – is Legendary Marketer Legit?

Yes, Legendary Marketer is 100% legit. I’ve been keeping a tab on LM for a while, and based on my conversations with people in this industry and reviews around the web, most people who claim it’s a “scam” just didn’t work hard enough or put David’s training to good use. The only thing that feels “scammy” to me is that the one-on-one business consultants are a little pushy with upsells.

Who Is Legendary Marketer For?

Legendary Marketer is mostly for complete beginners, lower-intermediate, and intermediate marketers who want to learn the core concepts behind all successful internet businesses so they can grow their own.

That’s actually one of the things I like most about it.

Instead of just teaching you how to build one type of business, you learn the core concepts behind every successful business, so you can take any path you want with confidence. Once you learn the core concepts, you’re free to branch out into any of the industries you want.

For example, once you do the 15-Day Business Builder Challenge, you’ll have the base of knowledge behind every successful affiliate site, eCom brand, or even YouTube channel. Just choose the one that stands out to you and start learning more about it.

Overall, I don’t think any of the training sections are elite. It’s more that they’re easy to digest and direct. Plus, you get a one-on-one advisor and regular assessment to make sure you’re learning (great for people like me…).

Pros and Cons: Is Legendary Marketer Legit?

I’ll admit I was wrong about David and Legendary Marketer. After going through the training, it’s definitely 100% legit. It’s not my favorite material out there, and I’m not a big fan of the “lifestyle business” vibes, but there’s a lot to like.

Here are my 3 favorite things:

1. Great entry-level training for cheap

Most free eBooks, courses, or videos teach you absolutely nothing. They only exist to get your email, so the company can bother you with upsells.

Not this one.

Legendary Marketer’s entry-level products are full of good info, especially the Insider’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing. I went in thinking it’d be just another fluffy eBook, but I actually found myself nodding along like “hey, that’s a good point!”

It comes with solid info on:

  • How to find a niche product
  • How to choose a niche with proven buyers
  • How to build a simple site for your products
  • How to run promotions
  • Scaling secrets

Plus you get a personal business consultation from one of David’s team members. Not bad for $1.99!

Obviously, they’re going to advertise other products to you once you sign up, but all of them are high-value, so why not take a look?

2. The affiliate program is great

Legendary Marketer’s affiliate program is one of the best in the business for a few key reasons.

  • Entry-Level Products: There are a ton of great entry-level products, so new users are more likely to sign up. This gives you more “bites at the apple” to earn a commission. Say someone signs up for the $1.99 eBook but then buys a higher-ticket item. You get a commission on that too.
  • Access to Funnels: You get access to custom funnels for different products like the Copywriter’s Playbook, Business Challenge Black, and 15 Second Free Leads. They share funnels created in ClickFunnels, so you can integrate them into your ClickFunnels and even customize them.
  • NOTE: The backend is also really detailed and walks you step-by-step through how everything works, so you can better promote the products and earn more commissions. That’s a nice touch in an industry full of disinterested sellers who expect their affiliates to just “figure it out.”

3. User-friendly pricing

Some of the big-ticket items are expensive. But Legendary Marketer is actually very affordable if you really think about it.

Hear me out…

The 15-day challenge is only $7, and the Legendary Marketers Club (their flagship product) is $30/month. It’s very comprehensive, so give yourself 2-3 months to go through the meat of it. After 3 months, if you’re confident enough, just cancel. Congrats, you just gained a ton of marketing knowledge for $97. That’s a fraction of some of the mid-level marketing courses that can cost $400+.

What I didn’t like

As I said, this isn’t my favorite material. Not to brag, but I’ve been in the game since I was a kid, so I’m not really learning anything new here, except from certain material on YouTube or TikTok (it’s not just for stupid dancing videos?).

Here are my least favorite things:

1. Upgrading for higher commissions

I’ve never seen anything like this before. This could be where a lot of the “MLM” talks come from. It’s definitely NOT, but it does feel that way at first.

To unlock higher commission rates, you’ve got to be a Pro member. The two plans are like this:

  • Basic: Basic is free and you get 10-30% commission depending on a bunch of factors.
  • Pro: 30-60% commissions, but it costs $29.95 per month.

Here’s my take. Most commissions for digital courses/training range from 30-50%.

50-60% is pretty generous. All you have to do is make about $60 in sales at a 50% clip to get your investment back each month. If someone buys the $2 eBook, then buys the Traffic Blueprint for $1500, you just made $700ish while you slept. It isn’t super likely, but plausible.

If you’re getting a lot of traffic, this membership is a win-win for both sides.

This type of system also drastically improves the quality of affiliates. A free affiliate program dilutes the pool and reduces the quality of each review/promotion, which could hurt David’s reputation—something he’s very careful with these days.

So, I don’t like it… but I get it.

2. I don’t like the vibe

I’m sorry, but I’m just a different kind of person. I’m not really into the “achieve your dreams,” “4 Hour Workweek” vibes that a lot of courses sell.

It always feels a bit like it’s about the dream and not the substance of the training.

David’s product is one of the few that actually delivers.

Honestly, I think I’m just jaded after seeing so many similar products not put out anything close to David’s level of knowledge.

I learned this all from the ground up with hard work and trial and error, so sometimes I get a bit jaded from the “lifestylepreneurs.” Though, I’m not saying David is one. He actually walks the walk too, which I respect.

Just not my style

3. The blocked countries list is restrictive

The list of blocked countries is pretty long.

If you’re an affiliate, this could get pretty frustrating. Say someone in one of the countries clicks any of your links, goes to signup, then realizes they can’t, that could hurt your sales and reputation.

Overall, the pros definitely outweigh the cons here. Especially if you’re more into the vibe of the brand than I am.

1. The Insider’s Guide to Affiliate Marketing Ebook ($1.99)

legendary marketer insiders guide to affiliate marketing

This is hands-down the best introductory guide to affiliate marketing under $100. It’s 90 pages of marketing secrets straight from David’s 9 years of experience in the business.

I actually consider this a free book because $1.99 isn’t enough to buy coffee at Starbucks (how I measure the value of money).

My rule of thumb is any book under $75-ish dollars probably isn’t worth your time.

This one breaks that mold.

The Insider’s Guide is jammed with evergreen strategies that you absolutely must know before starting an affiliate business. I already explained most of them before, but David drops a lot of knowledge on finding products, identifying lucrative niches, sending traffic to your pages, and a lot more.

Plus you get bonuses like a free one-on-one consultation and access to a Facebook group with 20,000 members.

Click here to check it out.

WARNING: You will be hit with a lot of offers for higher-ticket items. There’s a reason this book is so cheap. The reason David gives you a $100 book for $2 is to get you into the ecosystem. I’m not saying the offers are bad though. The high-ticket training courses are full of value. I just want you to know what you’re getting into.

2. 15-Day Business Builder Challenge ($7)

15-Day Business Builder Challenge

Have you ever eaten crow before?

I have, and it actually doesn’t taste that bad at all.

I was totally wrong about David’s 15-Day Business Builder Challenge. When I first heard it, I was like, “A business in 15 days? No way.

Thing is, I just didn’t understand what it really was. This isn’t a “build a business in 2 weeks” course, it’s a “learn the fundamentals of all successful businesses in two weeks” course.

After 15 lessons, you’ll know the secrets behind a successful online business so you can build your own with confidence (and avoid the mistakes we all made in the beginning!).

What is the 15-Day Business Builder Challenge?

The 15-Day Business Builder Challenge is a series of videos in which David personally teaches you a core business concept. Think of it as a deep dive into how to structure, set up, and launch your business.

After 15 lessons, you’ll have all the fundamental knowledge needed to begin a successful digital business.

David covers concepts like:

  • Building a sales funnel
  • Value ladders
  • Multiple income streams
  • Lead generation
  • High-income skills

And a ton more.

At first, I didn’t like how it was mostly “theory,” but after finishing the challenge (mandatory, by the way…. kind of annoying). I started to change my tune a bit.

David is open and honest about his struggles and creates a deep connection with his audience. The challenge is a solid mix of practical skills and theory/mindset lessons.

Once I started thinking about the challenge from the perspective of a beginner, I realized how much value was actually there.

For example, he covers everything from fundamentals like value ladders (so important!) to what an actual sales funnel looks like with his own notes. Like this:

Actual sales funnel example

This is probably one of my favorite entry-points to Legendary Marketer – I’ve been at it for over a decade and picked up quite a few nuggets to add to my toolbox and I’m sure you will too.

Warning: You will be hit with upsells quite a bit throughout the training.

On a side note, I don’t understand why so many internet marketers around the web complain about upsells with Legendary Marketer. Literally everyone in this business uses upsells. Actually, every smart business in the world does it. Why do you think dentists offer free cleanings when they move into a new neighborhood? They’re giving you a free product so you will schedule a consultation for braces. Everyone does this, so why single out David?

3. The Copywriter’s Playbook for 2023 ($1)

An insanely powerful copywriting course where David teaches you how to stop thinking and start “typing.”

This course might have the most value of any in Legendary’s catalog.

the copywriters playbook review

It’s a step-by-step copywriting course, eBook, and collection of notes that teaches you how to go from 0 to pro-level copywriter.

It’s NOT easy to finish or put into use, but if you really dig deep and hone your copy chops you could realistically start earning thousands of dollars for a single sales page.

Again, it won’t happen overnight, but for $1 it’s a steal.

As someone who knows 0 about writing copy, I found value in every single video. I’m too busy to start writing copy for other people, but I actually feel like I could write my own sales pages and ads now that I’ve finished the course.

Here’s the thing about copy: It doesn’t matter how much you know about it. If you don’t start writing, you won’t get better. You need to start writing sales pages, talking to clients about products, learning about your audience before you’ll see any improvement.

I hate to sound salesy, but I was blown away by the level of knowledge in this course.

Here’s what’s inside for $1:

  • How to get maximum clarity on your offer by asking the right questions
  • The 4 crucial elements to your offer
  • Newbie mistakes that will ruin your copy
  • A nifty little formula proven to increase conversion on ads (so you don’t waste 4 hours overanalyzing a 25-word ad)
  • How to move past features and find the real benefits
  • The 5 reasons people buy (not what I expected)

Then, you get a bunch of valuable bonuses like:

  • David’s private cliff notes
  • A 43-page eBook
  • A huge headline swipe file
  • High-value template

Here’s what I like most about this offer…

You can start making money instantly. With these tools, you can:

  • Freelance: Start charging clients good money to write their ads, sales pages, etc. That’s an instant income stream.
  • Write your own copy: No need to hire high-priced copywriters or waste time searching for good writers.
  • Earn more on your ads: Instead of writing low-converting ads, you’ll know how to write ads that actually make sales.

Even if David bombards you with offers for high-ticket training materials, it’s a small price to pay for all this knowledge.

This is one of the few legit shortcuts in the online business world. Instead of spending years learning this in the field, you get David’s 9 years of experience writing copy in an easy-to-digest course.

My advice: GET IT.

4. 15 Second Free Leads ($1)

15 Second Free Leads is a game-changing course on how to generate free leads from TikTok, the newest lead machine in the game.

David shows you exactly how he generated over 800k TikTok views along with help from other successful TikTokprenuers. He walks you through finding high-value content ideas, setting up a profile, and creating content your audience responds to.

15-second free leads review

TikTok is literally the Wild Wild West of online leads right now. It’s nowhere near as saturated or expensive as platforms like Facebook, IG, YouTube, or Snapchat, and you can generate hundreds of leads in very little time.

Here’s a quick overview of what you get:

There are tons of different parts of this training. Most of them were totally new to me.

  • Creating your plan: Jake Thornhill tells you how to create up to 150 TikTok content ideas and build a solid plan moving forward.
  • Building a profile: Next, the course teaches you how to build the perfect business profile, which actually helps monetize more quickly. I had no idea.
  • Get TikTok to share your videos: This one was my favorite in the bundle. TikTok uses a point system to determine which videos it shows to a particular audience. This training shows you how to game that system to get TikTok to share your videos way more than it normally would, so you’ll get more followers than your competitors do.
  • Post what people want to watch: In this video, a successful TikTok marketer shows you how to create content that people actually want to watch and respond to. This is how you get much warmer leads than usual. If you just create random videos, you won’t attract eyes.

I AM NOT a TikTok marketer, and I have very little experience with it. Nobody wants to see me do “Renegade.”

So, I’m hesitant to say if this training is actually elite-level or not. What I do know is that as a total beginner, I learned a lot and it felt like the information was highly valuable. I like how they back up everything they say with David’s screenshots. Numbers don’t lie.

Closing Thoughts: Is Legendary Marketer Worth the Price?

After going through David’s products, I was completely surprised.

I was really skeptical at first, but the majority of his training material is top-notch.

Overall, I’d say yes, Legendary Marketer is worth the price. But there are some caveats.

The low-ticket stuff is 100% worth the price. The eBook, Copywriter’s Playbook, and Business Builder Challenge are stupidly cheap and full of tons of hacks that will empower you to make a living online.

The Legendary Marketer’s Club is also 100% worth the monthly subscription. Hell, the weekly webinar alone might be worth it, let alone the video series. $30 a month for instant access to the minds of seven and eight-figure business minds? Yes, please.

The only one I’m a bit iffy on is the Affiliate Marketing Business Blueprint. It’s great if you take advantage of the live events, but if you don’t plan on going, then there are cheaper courses out there. The Digital Products Business Blueprint, however, is super high-value, and definitely the next income stream I’m going to tackle (anyone want my eBook?).

So, all in all, YES, Legendary Marketer is worth the price.

Legendary Marketer F.A.Q

Q1: Is Legendary Marketer a Pyramid Scheme?

A: No, Legendary Marketer is 100% NOT a pyramid scheme. Legendary Marketer produces high-quality training materials, offers one-on-one coaching, and puts on live events centered around online business. You can take their courses and learn how to build an online income. Pyramid schemes only make money by enrolling more members who then profit by enrolling even more members. Legendary Marketer isn’t even close to that.

Q2: Is Legendary Marketer legit?

A: Yes, Legendary Marketer is legit. David has generated tens of millions of dollars in revenue through online business, and he teaches you everything he’s learned in the business.

Q3: Is David Sharpe legit?

A: Yes, David Sharpe is legit. The guy has created more high-quality training materials across copywriting, affiliate marketing, consulting, and live events than just about anyone else. His reputation took a big hit based on his past business, but he’s distanced himself from that completely.
