TecAdemics is the latest digital venture from Chris Record.
Being touted as the “convergence of technology and academics”, TecAdemics is said to be the first internet marketing college.
Does this mean I’m on board?
This video explains:
All good? Let’s continue…
I knew Chris Record had it when he was on an Empower Network stage back in 2013.
You could tell dude was going places.
Fast-forward to 2016, Chris is a multi-millionaire (after launching a bunch of successful infoproducts like Dark Post Profits) and on the cusp of launching his biggest venture — real “college-like” internet marketing classes, taught by real leaders.
Chris partnered with Jim Piccolo, who has launched successful “online college” platforms in the real estate space and has done billions of dollars in sales.
Although its not a network marketing company, people can make bankroll by participating in the affiliate program.
Crazy money is being offered, including an absurd $100k matching bonus once an affiliate has reached $100k in commissions.
From the looks of it, a lot of big players are on board, including Vick Strizheus, Justin Verrengia, Troy Shanks, Frank Calabro and Peter Sorenson.
The foundation of TecAdemics is “TEC”, or “The Entrepreneur Club”.
$100/mo gets you complete access.
It’s the foundational education, featuring weekly trainings, an interactive forum, and popping off with “certified online tutors”, so it’s not just a place full of rookies.
I like that.
(Nothing more annoying than a place to learn that has a bunch of newbies asking each other for advice lol)
The TEC will have different topics that students can choose to learn from, including e-commerce, internet marketing, Facebook ads, lead generation, YouTube marketing, Google Adwords, social media marketing, email marketing, drop-shipping, etc, etc…
Next product is IMPACT, taught by Chris Record.
This product goes for $2,000.
These are more advanced home study courses that will go into deeper depth – more for the advanced marketer.
Essentially, its a video vault, so you can go at your own pace…but it will come equipped with lesson mastery and quizzes before unlocking future lessons, making it a more educational experience.
More academia, if you will.
Master’s Tuition ($10,000)
The top-shelf product is the Master’s tuition.
This costs $10,000.
It sounds like this product includes a week-long training (private mastermind) in Arizona…but 3-4 times a year.
These are for the tech marketers who’re ready to partner and collab with the realest and illest in the marketing game. At these workshops, people will have the chance to get one-on-one interaction and mentorship from people who’re already crushing their craft.
For how long?
According to a resource, “As a TecAdemics Masters Tuition student, you will have 90 minute sessions for six hours daily that last for 5 straight days.”
You’ll also be assigned to a virtual guidance counselor (fancy word for mentor?) who will be there to guide you in choosing the right courses, and choosing the right major.
Basically, this product is the closest thing you can get to a real, classroom experience – except your professors are ballers who’re masters of their own domains. In the tech space.
For each person you enroll in the program, you will either receive 40% commission or share the commission with the affiliate who signed you up for the program, with each of you receiving 20%.
The compensation plan also passes each 5th sale to your sponsor.
But the big money is the “matching bonus” that hits at $100,000.
Then it hits again at the million-dollar mark. (wow)
Here is an overview of the compensation plan:
It looks like there will be some serious affiliate potential, which makes sense why so many big-leagues have already got on board with the movement.
Popular Q and A:
Q:Once the program becomes “accredited”, can people get a government student loan and pay back tuition over time?
Chris Record: That’s not really our model. We aren’t wanting to be government regulated like that, because then we have so much red tape that we can’t keep up with all the newest marketing strategies to teach.
That’s why major universities and colleges don’t teach practices, they only teach principles. They don’t want to keep updating their text books.
We prefer to stay unaccredited so that we have the freedom to stay on top of the most up to date strategies that can help entrepreneurs create an ROI with their business, where we are able to update our content on a quarterly basis while major colleges take years to update their curriculum.
The ACE credit recommendation program is probably the most we will pursue, where credits can be transferred to major universities, and where adults can get continuing education credit for their careers (such as real estate, etc) that is required.
Just enough for credibility, but not enough that comes with a ton of red tape that turns us into an institution.
Chris Record is a visionary. From the 8 years that I’ve watched the “online money-making” space, he is one of the more ambitious.
At least top 3. Dave Wood has to be up there, too, as far as vision.
So for those reasons alone, TecAdemics will almost surely be a success. You know Chris won’t put out a mediocre product into the marketplace, because his resume has shown us otherwise.
But if you’re doing it for the money making opportunity, there are better options. (And you can trash those old MLM ways of home parties and peddling products on your Facebook.)
