Starting a business can be a lot of work, but a successful business pays off in the long run. Although many things contribute to the success of a business, getting it in front of the people who are likely to patronize it is one of the most important.
This explains why people who are great at getting results from ads are highly sought after. Sarah Mae Ives is one of these people and she has created a business called No Fluffs Ad Manager Program to also teach other people how to start ad agencies.
But before reading what I have to say about Sarah’s course, I need to say that I don’t recommend starting an agency like this. Why? Because clients come and go, and you will have to be on a continual hustle to find more clients. This video teaches a business model using google maps where you setup your OWN websites and rent them out to clients instead. If a client decides to leave, you can simply find another client and point the leads to them instead. I highly recommend this business model instead of the No Fluffs Ad Manager Program.
Here’s a video of my daughter’s business using this :
The program my daughter used above is much better than Sarah Mae Ives’ course. But since you are here to learn about the No Fluff Ad Manager Program, lets get back to our review of that:
The majority of potential customers are on social media and this is why social media advertising is a great way to promote your business. But running ads on social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram is not as simple as making a post. They require lots of expertise. This is why some people spend lots of money on ads and do not get the expected results.
Will you be able to build a successful ad agency if you sign up for Sarah’s program? This article seeks to explore this probability. Read the subsequent paragraphs to know more.
What is the No Fluff Ads Manager Program?
It is a mentorship program that teaches female entrepreneurs how to successfully run Facebook and Instagram ads and start ad agencies. The program uses a lot of training resources including training videos, live coaching, and Facebook group support.
Who is Sarah Mae Ives?
Sarah Mar Ives worked in corporate for years and felt stuck until she decided to change things in 2017. She was a single mother and wanted to be a present mom with enough funds to offer her child the best of everything. From 2010 to 2016 she tried the health coaching business and invested in several courses to learn and make her business successful but her business wasn’t growing as much as she wanted it to.
She eventually closed that business and started a Facebook and Instagram ads business and made $20,000 in the first two years. She knew this was the break she was looking for and focused more to expand her business. She later started helping other women to build a similar business and this is how the No Fluffs Ads Manager Program came about.
Sarah has clients all over the world and has run ads for prominent people. Some of them have been featured on Entrepreneur and Forbes. According to Sarah, some of her clients have enjoyed a 48 times ROI on ads she has placed for them.
How Does the No Fluffs Ads Manager Program Work?
Sarah’s program will teach you everything you need to know to start your advertising business in 90 days. Just like many other programs, Sarah has a free workshop that will encourage you to stop going through the usual route such as selling on Etsy, coaching, social media management, and others to make money. She will then introduce you to what she calls the most in-demand skill in the online space; ads management.
You need to book a strategy call with them and the staff will ask you questions to see if you are a good fit for the program. They will only enroll you if you are a good fit. From my experience with other programs, most people are likely a good fit and they do not reject anyone as long as you can pay for the course.
When you are finally convinced and you register for the mentorship, you will have access to training and tutorials that not only teach you how to run ads but how to start your ad agency and attract high-paying clients.
You will also receive mentorship from an ads manager who has great experience running successful ads. You will also have access to up to 5 weekly coaching calls where you can ask questions about issues that you are struggling with.
The staff is also on standby to provide support whenever you need it. The training materials are also self-paced and you will have access to it for a lifetime. Thus, you can always work on this business in your free time until you are ready to fully focus on it.
Sara Mae Ives also has an ads management service where she handles ads for businesses. Thus, you don’t need to learn how it is done. She will handle the entire process for you. She usually works with online coaches and consultants.
She also has a book on Amazon called The No Fluff Business which also teaches you how to start a successful modern business. But this book encourages you to join her mentorship.
How Much Does the Program Cost?
The No Fluffs Ads Manager Program costs $6400 but it can be divided into three payments and you will pay monthly. However, if you make a partial payment during the strategy call, they will offer you a $1000 discount. Sarah is generous with the discount and most people who signed up after the call were still able to sign up for $5400.
You will also need to spend on ads and that will depend on you and the results you are looking to get.
For the ads management service, her minimum package is $5000 per month and you should have an advertising budget of at least $30,000.
Her No Fluff Business book costs $12.95 for paperback and $0.99 for Kindle.
There is no refund policy.
Should You Invest in Sarah Mae’s Mentorship Program?
She has very good reviews on her book on Amazon with some people describing it as a game changer for entrepreneurs. Some were also glad that it really had no fluff and was inspiring. But, weirdly, there is no single negative review about her mentorship online. You will find lots of reviews about the mentorship program on her website, some unpopular review pages, and even on YouTube but they are all positive.
I tried to do more research and a Reddit user confirmed that her contract prevents people from leaving negative reviews. That is a big red flag, to be honest. And I wouldn’t encourage anyone to invest over $5k in a program that has such a red flag.
The positive reviews about the mentorship talked about how comprehensive the program is but the negative reviews are from people who were complaining about how their reviews about the program keep getting deleted.
The bottom line is that you can purchase her book since it has verified reviews but avoid the mentorship program. Good luck!
