A TAKING ACTION ONLINE REVIEW ?DISCUSSING 07 REASONS WHY I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT

...

INTRODUCTION

For the first time in three weeks of writing reviews, I’ve come across a product I can actually … Well, I’ll save that part for later. But to give you a hint. I was checking out this Taking Action Online course by Philip Borrowman, which actually has to do with building a business and making money online. My defenses were already up as usual because I was expecting to see another tiny piece of affiliate marketing sold at an exorbitant price. And for the first time, I was wrong. Needless to say, I was truly impressed by what I was looking at, but when I started browsing through the members’ area, I discovered some facts, which rather left me very disappointed. That’s why I decided to write and publish A TAKING ACTION ONLINE Review Discussing 07 Reasons Why I Do Not Recommend This Product.

VERDICT

??NOT RECOMMENDED??

 

MY TAKE

This is what I found out.

While going through the members’ area of Taking Action Online, I realized that there were striking similarities with the course I often recommend as my #1 recommendation. The steps are similar, content similar, recommended tools similar, and so much more. And what major difference distinguished the two? PRICES. You literally have to pay for extra resources if you go with Taking Action Online. It’s like Philip extracted the contents of my #1 recommendation, added some personal touch, charged you for it, and for the affiliate marketing tools that are normally given free of charge to all paid members, you would have to pay out of your pockets, thereby making the total cost of using the Taking Action Online course, a nightmare when it comes to your overall monthly budget.

I’ve detailed the cost calculations below of what to expect on a monthly basis with Taking Action Online.

That said:

 

TAKING ACTION ONLINE COMPRISES A SIGNIFICANT PORTION OF MY #1 RECOMMENDED AFFILIATE MARKETING TRAINING PLATFORM, BUT I WILL NOT RECOMMEND IT FOR ONE SIMPLE REASON: YOUR MONTHLY BUDGET FOR RUNNING AN ONLINE BUSINESS WITH TAKING ACTION ONLINE WILL EXPLODE BECAUSE YOU WOULD HAVE TO BUY ALL RELEVANT RESOURCES, THAT ARE OTHERWISE AVAILABLE FREE OF CHARGE WITH THE ORIGINAL TRAINING PLATFORM

 

I feel kinda awkward reviewing this course, but I must do what this site was created for: provide an objective and independent take of the products I review.

Read on to learn more about what Taking Action Online really is.

 

 

 

 

#1. A TAKING ACTION ONLINE REVIEW

...

I will be straight with you, right from the beginning of this review. The training offered by Taking Action Online cannot be compared with the majority of courses I’ve had to review lately, most of which I didn’t recommend.

But the quality offered by Taking Action Online is not without a price you have to pay. While you might think that you just found that long-awaited Gold Mine, I thought it rather necessary to prepare A Taking Action Online Review Discussing 07 Reasons Why I Do Not Recommend This Product, to the attention of those who wish to buy this course.

This review will make you understand some fundamental facts you need to consider when getting ready to start an online business: that of the cost.

Let’s now proceed to check out what Taking Action Online is.

...

1.0What Taking Action Online Is And How It Works✌

Taking Action Online is a 20-step action plan that is supposed to hold you by the hand and walk you through the creation of your very first online business. When you look into the members’ area of this platform, that is actually what they deliver. No bluff.

But having discovered what I know now, about Taking Action Online’s striking similarities with another online business platform that currently has over 1.7million members, as well as it’s exorbitant costs to help you start making money online with your own business, my review will be somewhat kind of controversial.

Controversial in what sense? In the sense that the course is good, but it will not be recommended. Anyway, the final decision will be yours to make, when you discover more details about everything later.

You can continue reading to find out more because all my controversial points have been clearly explained further down this review.

It seems it will increase further to $67/month after launch.  Just make sure to confirm these prices if you are interested in Taking Action Online.

 

Components Of Front End Package:

These are the courses you will find inside your Front End package. And if you check out My #1 Recommendation’ Members’ area, you will find a similar set of courses as well. This really feels awkward, I must admit. Have individuals started claiming credit for a training platform that has been evolving for over 15 years???

This is shameful!!

FACTS DISCLOSED ONLY HERE AT WORK WITH HOME JOBS: – ANALYSIS OF TAKING ACTION ONLINE 

1.1?PROS Of Taking Action Online?

...

A lot of information.

This is only obvious as the source of the majority of tutorials included in Taking Action Online has thousands of them and thousands of hours or replays. Even if 100 people try to duplicate this platform, it’s going to take them more than 20 years to get to the level This Top Recommendation has achieved today.

1.2?A TAKING ACTION ONLINE Review Discussing 07 Reasons Why I Do Not Recommend This Product?

...

1?No Hosting Is Offered Here?

This is the very first reason why I will not recommend Taking Action Online, and one of the features that My Best Recommendation offers free of charge, that will take several more decades for competitors to catch up with.

Remember that you are already paying $47/month for the tutorials alone. So when you have to budget extra for hosting, the expenses start becoming heavy. Don’t worry. There are many more expenses that I will disclose further down to be added to the list.

Philip recommends SiteGround, and when I checked out the WordPress hosting plans, this is what I found.

Refer to the image below:

 

A TAKING ACTION ONLINE Review

 

From the look of the WordPress hosting plans above offered by SiteGround, GoGeek should definitely be your choice, because you can get up to 100,000 visitors with this plan, even though it’s still not sufficient.

That’s not all. This plan also offers free domain specific email accounts, as well as free SSL Certificates and HTTPS, so you wouldn’t have to spend extra. But this plan has one main weakness: It gives you access only to 100 000 monthly visitors. This is quite small if you intend to scale your business in the long run.

But what’s the price? When you purchase the first time, ?they will charge $11.95/month, but at renewal, it will be $34.95/month?. The later price is the one I will consider for my calculations.

There is a handful of WordPress hosting platforms that include free unlimited email accounts in their hosting packages, but not many.

With My All-Time Top Recommendation’s free website and hosting features, your website can manage up to 500,000 visitors, for a price which is at least 5 times less than what Taking Action Online charges.

That’s not all. You also get:

  • Free unlimited email accounts;
  • Free SSL Certificates for life;

In fact, you can check out these 9 WordPress hosting features that every WordPress hosting platform needs to have, and Wealthy Affiliate has all of them included AT ZERO EXTRA COST!.

And the beautiful thing about Wealthy Affiliate’s All-In-One solution is that you can transfer your website to another host if you want, at any time because they also operate like any other WordPress hosting provider.

That’s right. They teach you everything you need to know about building an online business, and they host it for you at the same time.  Competitors are still to beat this level of technological advancement.

These are not presumptions but facts. I have figures further down to prove what I’m saying.

2?Access To Updated Courses At Taking Action Online Need Another Extra Budget ?

Here is another reason I will not recommend Taking Action Online to a complete newbie, especially someone with a very limited budget.

Only those who can afford to pay an extra $24.95/month will have access to ongoing updates because these updates are only available as an upsell.

This is really sad.

If this platform had been created way back in 2017, I really don’t think I would have been able to afford to start an online business. You would not believe it if I told you, but I will tell you anyway.

My overall cost, for hosting this website at My Top Recommendation and access to everything inside the members’ area, at ZERO UPSELLS, including:

  • Updates in the form of weekly live events/classes
  • All the training resources – 1000+ of them
  • Free 1-on-1 Coaching (Taking Action Online charges extra for this. More in this later)
  • All the free tools costing hundreds, if not thousands of dollars in the long run [more on this later (Jaaxy)]
  • Free case studies shared by successful members about how the training works (Taking Action Online charges extra. More on this later).
  • Gosh, AND TONS MORE…

YES. What was I saying?

My overall cost of the premium features above ==> ???$24.92/Month ONLY!!!???

 

This is what Philip charges for his updates!! And what updates would that be? Tutorials, not even live events.

Why? Do you think I’m kidding with my total monthly expenses? Check out the image below to see what I pay every single year:

 

The TAKING ACTION ONLINE Review

 

You can see from the image above, everything included, is only $49/month, unlike Taking Action Online, that costs $47/month for only tutorials.

3?Prepare Another Budget For Some Fundamental Affiliate Marketing Tools ?

During his Taking Action Online Keyword research tutorial, Philip actually recommended a very important affiliate marketing tool that every individual serious about starting an online business should have.

Check out the image below:

 

What TAKING ACTION ONLINE Is

 

This is the famous keyword research tool, known as Jaaxy, which was created by the founders of My Training Platform, Kyle and Carson.

But what Philip didn’t tell you was that this tool is available free of charge, only to premium members of Wealthy Affiliate. Outsiders like yourself should be prepared to pay an extra $49/month if you want to stick to Philip’s Taking Action Online.

There are more advanced plans for this tool, which are not needed especially by starters, because the one which is available free of charge for premium members, is just enough. This is the plan that is worth $49/month for outsiders.

Ever since I started using this tool way back in 2017 I’ve not had any need to upgrade.

This tool has an affiliate program. I guess when you buy it from the Taking Action Online dashboard, Philip makes commissions, in addition to all the incredibly expensive upsells!!

He also recommended some free keyword tools, but we both know that these freebies are always insanely restricted in one way or the other. Why not just take action now with a platform that fathered Philip instead of learning from another student?

The choice is yours to make. If you have the budget, by all means, go for Taking Action Online.

4?Tracking Your Your Progress With Taking Action Online Is Manual And Tedious?

Philip tried to copy a feature, which I’ve been underestimating until I found Philip’s course, that helps members to track the progress status of their training lessons.

But for one reason, you would have download and save to Google servers… or something of that sort. It was a bit techie for a dummy like myself to understand.

I didn’t have to go through all that stress with Wealthy Affiliate. The tracking of your progress is completely automated, and as soon as you complete a task, it is marked as completed automatically.

I didn’t know how important this feature was until I saw Philip trying to implement the exact same thing manually.

Not cool.

...

5?Why Do Internet Marketing Products Always Charge Extra For Case Studies??

When I found this upsell with Philips Taking Action Online, I had to Google it to actually understand what it means. I’ve since been ignoring this particular upsell, and perhaps been taking it for granted that Wealthy Affiliate offers a ton of them for free.

There are all demonstrated examples that a particular principle works. In our case, the training platform. The relevant instance here would be testimonials.

Well, don’t confuse these testimonials with the ones you see on review landing pages.

Whenever a member at Wealthy Affiliate provides a testimonial, he provides greater details on how he actually used the Wealthy Affiliate training to achieve those results. These are effective case studies, that we get the opportunity to access free of charge almost on a daily basis because every member has a private blogging space, which they always use to share their success stories to motivate others.

Now it seems I would have to pay an extra $197 just to see how Taking Action Online works. Hmmm…???

...

6?No Compatible WordPress Builder Available?

Wealthy Affiliate offers a highly compatible WordPress site builder offered by Wealthy Affiliate free of charge, which is compatible with any WordPress plugin and provides a platform for an amazing WordPress hosting experience without any technical skills required.

This site builder comes with over 3,500 free themes.  Taking Action Online does not offer any of these features.

It’s time to check out the only point that gave me enough reason to disqualify Taking Action Online.

7?Taking Action Online Is Not Cost-Friendly?

I prepared a little table to make you understand better what cost elements to take into account when preparing your budget for this product. I strongly believe that because of lack of experience, the vast majority of people don’t get down to the figures, because they simply don’t understand.

That’s why I’ve decided to do the math for you so that all you can do is compare with your pocket and determine for yourself whether Taking Action Online is a worthy companion to help you start up a cost friendly and profitable online business.

Check it out below:

 

REF FIRST YEAR EXPENSE ACCURATELY ESTIMATED Standard
MONTHLY CHARGES Monthly Budget ($)
1 Taking Action Online Monthly Subscription Fee 47
2 Hosting With SiteGround WordPress 11.95
3 Domain Name 1.17
4 Jaaxy Keyword Tool 49
5 Updates Upsell (Very Important) 24.95
Total Monthly Expenses [1+2+3+4+5] 134.07
A First Year Expenses With Taking Action Online [Total Monthly X12] Without Upsells 1608.84
UPSELLS One Time Payment
1 First Upsells: STRATEGIES 67
2 Second Upsell: CASE STUDIES 197
B Total Upells 264
TOTAL FIRST YEAR EXPENSES ESTIMATED [A + B] 1872.84

 

REF SECOND YEAR EXPENSE ACCURATELY ESTIMATED Standard
MONTHLY CHARGES Monthly Budget ($)
1 Taking Action Online Monthly Subscription Fee 47
2 Hosting With SiteGround WordPress 34.95
3 Domain Name 1.17
4 Jaaxy Keyword Tool 49
5 Updates Upsell (Very Important) 24.95
Total Monthly Expenses [1+2+3+4+5] 157.07
A First Year Expenses With Taking Action Online [Total Monthly X12] Without Upsells 1884.84
UPSELLS One Time Payment
1 NONE 0
2 NONE 0
B Total Upells 0
TOTAL FIRST YEAR EXPENSES ESTIMATED [A + B] 1884.84

 

Let the figures speak for themselves.

Just as I mentioned at the beginning of this article, Taking Action Online tutorials, are ??5 times more expensive than Wealthy Affiliate yearly membership?? every single year.

WealthyAffiliate University Cost only $359/year, and $299/year on Black Fridays.

#2. CONCLUSION OF THE TAKING ACTION ONLINE REVIEW

...

Here is my take:

 

 

NOT RECOMMENDED BECAUSE OF THE EXORBITANT COST AS COMPARED TO OTHER RELEVANT RESOURCES

 

Here is a brief recap of the reasons I do not recommend Taking Action Online:

  1. Hosting is not included with the costly package;
  2. You have to pay extra to access updated courses;
  3. You also need to pay extra for fundamental online business tools such as keyword research;
  4. Prepare to pay even more for case studies, which are available free of charge on other platforms;
  5. No compatible WordPress site builder for starters
  6. You need to be very rich to create an online business with this training course because your overall yearly budget will stand at approximate at $1,884,84

 

That said;
