Mike Barron's Closer Academy
One of my subscribers asked me to do a review on this course, and I love my subscribers so I did just that.
Also I did not purchase this review and go through it myself, so This review is just my opinion after doing hours and hours of research and gathering information so that you don’t have to. I have also purchased and completed over $40K in online courses and have tried every single online business out there. But I have not taken this specific course myself, so it is all opinion based.
Having said that, in my educated opinion it is not a good course. And if you are truly looking for a legit way to start a passive income business online, my top recommendations for the Best ways to make passive income are linked below.
Otherwise Stick around to the end of this article or watch the video above to find out the main highlights of Mike Barron’s course and if its right for you.
What is it?
-A training teaching you how to earn commissions by conducting sales for coaches and online courses over the phone.
-So anytime there’s a very expensive course, creators/mentors/coaches will require that you get on a phone call to see if you are a “right fit” for their course. (Which if you have been around the block, you know that this just means that they know if they can get you on the phone with a good closer, then they have a better chance of making a sale).
-So this course is teaching you how to be that closer.
Who was it created by? And can you trust them?
-Mike Barron, who claims that he has made approximately $1.9 million in sales last month. This has not been verified, and those sales are likely mostly from selling his course.
-He also owns Limelight media, which is a facebook advertising company for fitness coaches and professionals.
What’s different about it from every other course?
-Its actually very similar to a course called Remote Closing Academy by Cole Gordon. And also Inbound Closer by Payton Welch. Which is sort of shocking to me, that there is more than one course teaching you phone sales.
How does it work?
-Coaches who are selling their high ticket services produce leads AKA potential customers.
-These leads schedule a phone call to see if they are a “right fit” for a coaching program.
-When they call, You would answer, follow a script, and try to close the sale.
-If you close the sale, you make a commission. Usually about $500.

Who is it good for?
-People who are salesmen at heart, or have experience in sales.
-People who want a side job where you are on the phone a lot.
Who is it not good for?
-If you are shy or introverted at all, this will not be a good program for you.
-If you are uncomfortable talking to strangers, this will not be the job for you, because not only are you going to have to talk to them, but you’re going to have to try to sell them something as well. Even the most skilled sales person will still get rejected.
-If you need a full time consistent job with a consistent paycheck, this is not for you. You never know how many sales you will make from month to month.
-You can learn valuable skills for making sales over the phone.
-You can do this as a side job.
-You are not learning how to build your own business, you are just trading one job for another.
-It’s not passive. You are going to have to be on the phone for hours per day, so you are still just trading your hours for money.
-You are going to get rejected A LOT and have plenty of rough phone calls, so you need to be very thick skinned.
-No security. If you don’t make sales, you don’t get paid.
-As far as schedule goes, you are at the mercy of
-Many terrible reviews from people who bought the course and feel as though they were scammed. Even one previous employee of the program that says it’s a scam.
Linked below is a much better course in my opinion.
It is a complete training system showing you step by step how to Ethically Hack Youtube and Google, to build your own high ticket affiliate marketing business. Meaning passive income every day on autopilot. No customer service, no phone calls, no building websites or being technical at all, no angry customers. Just Hundreds of dollars in commissions coming in daily on autopilot.
-There are a few good reviews and several complaints from previous students online. One person claiming she got “cohersed” into spending $48,000. One person saying he was guaranteed a job and is making $1000 a day most of the time. So it goes both ways. Here are a few excerpts from previous students and one at the bottom from someone claiming he used to work there.
“Now totaling me $48,000.00! This whole thing isn’t what they claimed it to be! I had to file a despute ! So fare I got $20,000,00 today they are stonewalling me! They still owe me $28,000.00! I feel as if I have exhausted all my resources! Please help!” -Cynthiaromans.90
“Promised me a closer opportunity, with a team of setters and bookings…
Didn't have the closer opportunity, no team of setters, had to hunt my own bookings (leads which were shared between the whole team – so leads were stolen by others).” -Steve G
“Invested $2500. Went through the sales training in about 3 weeks and then went to job placement where I had 3 different interviews for fitness, exotic cars, and to work for mike himself” -Ty M
I've had a great experience going through the closer academy. I went from nothing to being able to afford a nice place to stay and getting ready to buy a car that I thought I would never have -Daniel T
“I worked there with these punks and scammers. Fortunately I never invested my hard earned money. But I watched as Mike and his real Inner Circle sat in the back offices and laughed at making people pay up to 50k for a stolen product “ -YouknowWhoIam
-Mike Barron has several products you can buy. This mentorship, “Sales and Closing Academy” is $7500. So it is his full mentorship, taking you by the hand and showing you how to be a closer. But he also has several other lower ticket products as well.
-He has a “Communication Course” for a $100, a “Virtual Training Masterclass Program” for $250, a “Money Mindset” course for $50, and something called the “Online PT That Sells Program” for $97.
-There is no guarantee of obtaining a high ticket client, or that you will make money at all.
-There is a 14 day Full refund period, and after the 14 days you can still get refunded 50%, but its unclear for how long.
-Another reddit user said this: “There’s a few people who have reported getting their money back after months of dealing with banks, and threatening legal action.”
-Don’t spend more than $2500 on his products and trainings. Seems like the people who enjoyed the training and have a job now didn’t spend over this amount.
-If an online training course is ever over $10,000 without some kind of guarantee, don’t buy it. There are high quality trainings for $2000 and under.
-You are trading one job for another one. Its not passive, and you are going to be getting rejected over the phone several times per day.
I don’t recommend this course at all and heres why. If you are on my channel, you are in search of a passive way to make income from home. This is not passive. You are trading your time for money, just like any other job. And this one doesn’t have a guarantee of getting paid each month.
If you want to learn how to be a closer and make sales, there are a lot of courses online that are free or very affordable. The main thing about these closing courses that they are teaching is a script. You can find scripts online for free.
And lastly there are way too many bad testimonials and complaints from previous students online. Huge red flag.
But I won’t leave you empty handed. Here are my top 3 recommendations for The best ways to make passive income online in 2023. I have done all of them, and I make money on autopilot every day from each of them.
