I joined the very basic level of the Entre Institute to see if they offered me enough quality training and value to justify spending more money on their other packages. Long story short, after seeing what I saw, I wasn’t convinced it was worth it and in this review will explain what you should expect from this program if you decide to join it too.
A summary and quick overview of Entre Institute:
- $39 for the most basic membership (where I joined).
- $297 one time for membership to the Elite Entre membership.
- $3,997 for the entire Entre Digital Course.
- I have also had comments from members saying the pricing can hit upwards of $10,000’s in costs.
What does it teach?
Entre Institute teaches 3 primary ways to make an online business: Affiliate marketing, making digital courses and also creating and running a digital agency.
The membership I joined basically pitched me a series of training videos showing the money making potential of each of these online businesses and that if I purchased the Entre Digital Course ($3,997), I would learn about all of this.
Later on in the review, I’ll discuss the details of these things.
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
Do I recommend Entre Institute? No! Here’s why:
I do not think Entre Institute is a scam, but there’s 2 things that rubbed me the wrong way about this program:
First, they email and call you too much once you sign up to try and get you to talk to their “coach”. I disliked this a lot and felt like I was being spammed too much. I think their coach is going to try and also sell you into the $3,997 opportunity (it’s normal in these businesses).
Second, the $39 membership is really just a presell to buy the main Entre Digital Course for $3,997 and I disliked that pretty much what I got in this membership was a lot of hype and talk about the potential of making an online business vs getting what I consider good training content on the subject.
In short, to me, it felt like all roads in the program lead you to $3,997 purchase and while I’m sure there’s good content (likely not a scam) in that course, you just don’t need to spend this much on such material and I’ll show you why shortly (the reasons 3 below will explain this).
The good news is since I know about all 3 subjects personally, I can tell you how they work, and perhaps Entre can help you achieve success there, but in my opinion you don’t need to spend money on how much Entre Institute charges for this because there’s cheaper programs that do it already. The following one (Wealthy Affiliate) is an example of that. While I am an affiliate for it, the fact is you can try it risk free and here’s more details:
A video review of Entre Institute:
Full review of my experiences with Entre Institute (also known as Entre Nation):
Before I joined:
2) I decided to dip my feet into the lowest membership of this program to see if it offered value, because Millionaire Shortcut didn’t really do that. It just hyped the subject of making online businesses and how Jeff’s program can help you succeed there.
Once I joined Entre Institute, here is what happened:
1) For starters, I was pitched the $297 OTO to join their Elite Membership. I declined because I didn’t trust the program enough to do it.
2) Second, I started getting call after call (3), text after text (at least 2) and email after email about me scheduling a coaching session and welcoming me to the program.
Folks, one email is enough. What they did it could be construed as spamming and I literally told the rep that called me (after the second time) to put me on their do not call list (and they still called me after one more time). They were trying to get me to schedule a coaching presentation with the guy who was given to me once I joined. I really regret giving them my number.
And so this all happened right before I even stepped foot into the Entre Institute program and my experience was already off to a bad start.
Inside the Entre Institute program (aka Entre Blueprint) and the training
(If you can call it that):
So the $39 program I purchased gave me 6 steps of “training” and in this training I was shown the possibilities of building an online business in 3 different fields:
1) Affiliate marketing:
You’re given some OK content on what it’s like to sell products for Clickbank and other places as an affiliate and the advantages of running an online business in this field.
You are also given a free eBook on this subject that basically enforces those points and are also shown how you can become an affiliate for Entre Institute as well as the high ticket affiliate commissions you’d get if you started promoting them.
Being that I know tons on this matter (see my affiliate income reports), I can vouch for some of this information, but to be honest, most of in this field was the talk of the potential, not so much getting started or info I could use if I were a total beginner.
Here’s some other courses on affiliate marketing I would recommend over the stuff in Entre Institute (because of the prices):
- Wealthy Affiliate (the best choice because you get everything and can try it free).
- Affiliate Lab. Also a good program.
- Savage Affiliates. A few $100 but the content is good.
- Healthy Commissions. Not a bad affiliate marketing program.
- 123 Affiliate Marketing. Another good (but expensive) affiliate program.
2) Creating a digital marketing agency:
As you progress through the 6 steps, this is the next thing taught which is how you can make an online business by going to businesses who need work done for them in the marketing field. You’re shown a list of things you can offer and charge businesses for in marketing work and this can create your own digital marketing agency.
You’re also shown how the Entre Institute offers you the education to get this material to then pitch to business owners so you can make money from it. There are also other programs like this out on there which I’ve reviewed and here are some:
- Growth Cave.
- The Modern Millionaires.
- Wealthy Affiliate (yes they also have local marketing/agency training and I think it’s the best for the price).
3) Making your own online courses:
In this final area of “training” in Entre Institute, you’re shown the money making potential of making your own online courses in any niche you love (here are evergreen niches and here are 5 micro niches for ideas) and then doing things like creating eBooks, courses and so forth, then driving traffic to those offers and making money from that.
Additionally, you also get pitches about the way to make money in this business through traffic generation and learning things from Entre Institute like:
If you go by what these trainings offer, then yeah it’s a lot of potential value and yes, all of these businesses can legitimately make you a lot of money online. But in Entre’s case, in order to get that access to learn them, there’s a pretty big price tag for it all in my opinion. There’s also a Trustpilot review of Entre where you can read and determine on your own if it’s worth it (I would read all the reviews, because the star rating is high, but the reviews are at times very mixed).
And this brings us to the pitch to get Entre Digital Bundle Course:
Once you’re done going through the 6 steps, you are taken through a 2 hour webinar by Jeff Lerner who pitches learning the details of all of these types of online businesses and getting help from his team and community to start.
The price? Well it’s $3,997.
And this gives you full access to Entre Institute and all of it’s training. Is it worth it?
Possibly, but I’m not recommending it because I’ve seen and learned this stuff in the Wealthy Affiliate already and it’s only $49 a month. To me, that’s a better deal if you’re in a situation where spending $1,000s is out of your budget.
Questions about Entre Institute:
Is Entre Nation for real?
That depends on what real means to you. Entre Nation is legitimate but I do not recommend it because it is very expensive to get all of it’s benefits and in my opinion there are better alternatives to it anyway.
How do I get a refund from Entre Institute?
Entre Institute has a support email you can contact for refunds but there are rules to when a refund is allowed.
Is Entre nation legit?
In my opinion Entre Nation is legit but at the same time can be extremely expensive for a lot of people. This is why I personally do not recommend it, among other reasons.
Is Entre a pyramid scheme?
No Entre Institute is not a pyramid scheme. However it can get expensive and because I did somewhat try it, I was not happy and did not rate it very high either.
What is Entre blueprint training?
The Entre Blueprint is several different videos detailing different ways to make money online through several online business methods.
Conclusions on Entre Institute (3 reasons I’m not going further or recommending it):
Reason 1 (a lot of hype vs real training, plus high costs):
The first problem here is that while Jeff is great at showing you the potential of this stuff in his 6 steps, vs actually doing something to make it happen (2 big distinguishing differences).
I never really felt like I got much value and training out of the $39 membership and because I’m experienced in this stuff, I don’t let the emotional marketing and hype get to me and Jeff is great at showing you the emotions associated with making money. My advice is not to let this marketing let you decide your purchasing decisions.
Look at ALL programs/opportunities objectively not based on emotions, but the real value given.
Reason 2 (I really disliked all the calls, text and emails I got and I provided proof of that):
This may not be a problem for you, but for me, whenever I join programs, trust me, I won’t forget that I joined (I literally paid to be there) and I’ll start on my own. Being called up, texted and emailed over and over to start is too pushy for me.
My opinion is that they’re trying to get the coaching call and sales pitch to get you to buy the Entire Digital Course. If I’m wrong on that, correct me below. But if it’s true, I do not like that.
Reason 3 (there are MUCH better alternatives):
Assuming that the entire course is legit, it’s still too expensive and I gave you several options to consider instead (I am not affiliated with all of them, just Wealthy Affiliate so if you feel I’m being biased, try one of the others).
But my top choice is Wealthy Affiliate because:
A) They are risk free to try (learn about that here) and it’s one of the only programs in the business that does this AND offers value (to me, they offer the most value but you should make that decision on your own).
You learn all there is to know about affiliate marketing. I am literally a full time earning affiliate thanks to their training today.
B) They provide countless hours of training on making your own digital agency in their local marketing courses ($49/month offer) and this is created by a literal man who does it himself.
C) And third, you can absolutely use the online business training in Wealthy Affiliate to build your own courses, make your own eBooks and sell them online through the teachings provided.
In other words, all the stuff that Entre Institute could offer you for $3,997, Wealthy Affiliate does for much less and if you don’t believe me, you can try them for free to see that for yourself.
Based on my experiences at Entre Institute, its a no for me and I’m debating whether to get a refund or not. Until then or perhaps if there’s a future improvement to the program or perhaps the prices go down, I’ll maintain my opinion and position, but I look forward to your thoughts on this review and if you agree or disagree with me.
