Billy Gene: The GENEIUS Ad-vantage
Billy Gene: The GENEIUS Ad-vantage
Who is Billy Gene?
Many of you may have heard of Billy Gene is Marketing, whether it was on YouTube or other social media platforms. Well for those who don’t know of Billy Gene, he is one of the top online marketing influencers in the world. Let’s dive into a little backstory. Billy Gene attended the University of San Diego but never ended up graduating. Instead, he started his own mobile oil change company. However, this company ended up going out of business. He then started working at a call center selling online degrees. This is when he discovered that the CEO was making $25,000,000 a year. This changed his mindset. He knew that he had a lot of knowledge in using Facebook, and so he started his own Facebook ad agency. His Facebook ad agency then started building a clientele and many people began to ask him how he was so good at social media/online marketing. Then the development of his course began.

What are the pros and cons of this course?
For everything, there are pros and cons. With Billy Gene’s courses it’s no different. Let’s start off with some of the pros of this course:
– What he is teaching about is straightforward
– There are proven results for businesses they have worked with
– Billy Gene’s ads are attention grabbing
Billy Gene is straight to the point when it comes to discussing what his GENEIUS AD-vantage course pertains to. This is that of converting site traffic into paying customers using strategic advertising tactics. On Billy Gene’s website, there are various videos of students sharing with the user their experience with using his course. Another pro of his course, are the ads that he displays of his business are very attention-grabbing. Upon playing the ad, they immediately grab the attention of the viewer and intrigue them to keep watching it. He does this through the use of comedy, entertainment, and he is a character. This makes businesses interested in wanting to learn how to also create ads like his in order to also draw attention to their companies.
Now that we looked over some pros, let’s look at some of the cons:
– There is a lot of dissatisfaction with the content of the course
– Lacks seriousness
– No refunds
Billy Gene emphasized that his course teaches the student marketing skills that you don’t learn at school. However, many ratings that I have found online state that the information they learned from his course could have been gathered through Google. This caused a lot of anger and disappointment among the individuals that paid for this memberships and got nothing valuable out of it. Another con that was brought up about Billy Gene’s course was that throughout the training, it seemed to lack seriousness. From what I have read, it made it seem more of an entertainment platform rather than a training course. It has made some business owners think that they had spent their money on nothing. When it comes to someone spending money on a course, they expect to learn something of value. When that isn’t given or taken seriously, everything goes downhill. The biggest problem regarding GENEIUS AD-vantage, is that they have no refunds. This has become a major issue as many other courses offer a certain amount of days to get the members money-back. This course does not. This course has also been said to be very difficult to get your subscription cancelled. There are many reviews where users have tried to cancel their subscription, but continue to get charged.
Overall, Billy Gene’s GENEIUS AD-vantage has attracted a lot of attention. His YouTube videos and his ads have led to companies wanting to learn how to make videos as attention-grabbing as his. However, before you go out and subscribe for this course there are many factors you should take into consideration. This includes the content being taught in this course. The content is said to be information one can merely find on Google. The other big factor to take into consideration before subscribing, is that there is no trial of the course. You get what you get and there are no refunds. Be careful, as it has been shown through several past users, that it is very difficult to unsubscribe from the course once you enroll. With that being said, I would give Billy Gene’s GENEIUS AD-vantage a score of a C.
