What Is Digital Altitude? Why I DISLIKE It!

What is Digital Altitude and why do I dislike it so much?

I'm sure you want the answers to both of those questions so that's exactly what I'm going to give you in this review. ​

Digital Altitude Review

Name: Digital Altitude

Website: Digitalaltitude.co

Owner: Michael Force

Price: $1 Trial and WAY up from there

Overall Score: 40 out of 100​

Summary: Digital Altitude is a MLM company that came out in 2016 and claims to be a great opportunity for people to make money from home. They don't sell physical products but instead they sell digital products in the form of training. My main issue with this program is that they put most of the focus on recruiting rather than on actual products. 

What Is Digital Altitude?


Digital Altitude is a MLM company that sells people on the idea of being able to make big money from the comfort of their own home.

When you first see their website you quickly feel inspired by it because it’s very well done and has high quality videos that concentrate on people’s dreams of being financially independent.

It’s important to set your emotions aside while perusing their website because they are very good at articulating an article or video in a way that get’s your entrepreneurial juices flowing.

Basically what you need to know about this company before you join is that you will not be selling any actual products, instead you’ll be working tirelessly in an effort to convince other people to join.

In fact, the only way to make money from this is by recruiting other people into it.

So you’ll work your butt off to try to recruit people into this and then your recruits will go into your “downline”.

How Does Digital Altitude Work?


They offer a 14 day trial for only $1 which is smart because not only does it get people to signup but it also gets people to hand over their credit card information.

Once you pay the $1 trial you’ll be a member and you can now start to learn more about the program.

Even though you’ve paid the $1, you’re not really getting anything for your money.

Basically by agreeing to this $1 trial fee you’re only paying so that they can try to sell you on a full paying membership.

Aspire Membership ($17 Per Month)

da-3

Now they’ll go to work on convincing you to become an affiliate which they call an “Aspire” member. To do this you’ll have to pay $17 per month  and it really only buys you the ability to recruit people.

As an Aspire member you’ll get some more training in the form of videos but more importantly you’ll get your own coach. Your coach will be with you for the entirety of your membership and is supposedly there to help you succeed but I beg to differ.

Rather than help you succeed it seems like the real purpose of the coach is to convince you to pay more and raise your membership level.

They are well trained sales people so watch out for them because they’ll make it seem like the more you spend, the more you’ll make.

The first thing they’ll try to do is sell you on the three different levels in the Aspire membership…..Walker, Hiker and Climber. 

As with all membership levels in Digital Altitude you’ll only be able to make a commission from a recruit if that recruit buys into the program at your level or below your level.

This is a common tactic with MLM companies because it urges people to spend more so that they can make more.

Here’s what you get with each of the three levels:

Aspire Walker: $37 Per Month

  • 40% commission
  • 1 tier payout
  • Members area
  • Start-up training videos

 

Aspire Hiker: $67 Per Month

  • Up to 50% commission
  • 2 tiers of payout
  • Members area
  • Start-up training videos
  • Weekly training
  • Monthly conf call
  • Additional sales funnels
  • Client for life coaches
  • Tools & Resources

 

Aspire Climber $127 Per Month

  • Up to 60% commissions
  • 3 tiers of payout
  • Members are
  • All the rest from Aspire Hiker

 

So then once you choose one of the Aspire levels you can then go through the training and then start to sell and recruit.

Since the three Aspire levels are monthly memberships, you’ll receive a recurring commission every month that one of your recruits remains a member.

This is a big selling point because it’s a way for people to get a passive income once they’ve built up a large team of recruits.

On top of that monthly Aspire membership commission you’ll also try to sell your recruits on other high ticket items.

These items are called memberships but really they’re just one time payments that you’ll get a commission from. Here are the items you will be trying to sell your recruits.

 

Base Membership ($597 One-Time Fee)

da-4

The Base Membership includes 12 modules of training that will help you……Yep you guessed it…..recruit more people.

The 12 modules are broken up into 3 sections. Prepare, Launch and Grow.

I’m not going to go into detail about what each of these modules entail because it’s just too much.

Sure there are some pretty good techniques that could apply to any type of marketing or selling but I just don’t like that so much focus goes into recruiting for this same system.

Don’t forget about the rules for this system, if you don’t buy the Base membership, then you won’t make any commissions if your recruits buy it.

If you only buy the monthly Aspire membership, then your sponsor (the person who recruited you) will get the commission for any levels above Aspire that your recruits buy.

 

Rise Membership ($1997 One-Time Fee)

da-5

The Rise Membership includes 19 modules broken up into 5 sections.

The 5 sections are Commit, Customer, Create, Words and Partners.

They’re calling this a digital business mastery course and it covers things like writing sales copy, writing headlines, sales techniques and relating to your audience.

Again, the training is pretty good actually. You can learn a lot here but you can find training that is as good or better than this for much cheaper elsewhere.

 

Ascend Membership ($9997 One-Time Fee)

da-6

 

This is where things get really serious. I mean 10K? Really?

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw that number but it’s true, they are trying to convince people to let go of 10K in order to get to this level of the membership.

With that being said, at least you get something with this one. That price includes a trip to Las Vegas for a 3 day retreat.

This price covers your airfare and hotel for two people. So there is some value in that but you could still do it way cheaper if you just booked your own trip to Vegas.

While you’re there they’ll talk about some important aspects of this business broken up into 3 day agendas. Here’s what they cover.

 

Day 1 Agenda:

  • Top 5 most profitable traffic sources
  • 6 strategies to scale traffic
  • 7-figure conversion hacks
  • 3 powerful funnel formulas

Day 2 Agenda

  • The power of a personal brand
  • How to tell your story
  • Finding the guru in you
  • How to master video

Day 3 Agenda

  • Increase conversions with analytics
  • How to create amazing content
  • How to work smarter with outsourcing
  • How to build a team

My personal opinion is that no matter how great this training may be, it could be just as effective and a hell of a lot cheaper if they just made some videos and sold the videos as training.

I wonder how many people actually go to these things?

I do know that a lot of these retreat programs have almost a cult like mentality where the people leave feeling so pumped up and motivated by it all that they throw caution to the wind and jump into whatever the program is head first.

Maybe it’s like that, maybe not….I didn’t go so I can’t really say.

 

Peak Membership ($16,997 One-Time Fee)

da-7

Yes you read that right….$16,997.

As much as that seems like an insane amount of money to spend, they can justify it by saying that all you have to do is sell the Peak membership to 2 of your recruits and you’re in the black. Then after that it’s all gravy.

I get the concept and I do see the logic they are using to sell this stuff but come on, do we really need to risk this much money to start a profitable home business?? Hell no, I started mine for $100.

This membership level gives you training on 20 different topics relating to business and internet marketing.

There is a wide variety of stuff they teach here but I can show to at least 2 training programs that will teach you more valuable information for a mere fraction of that price.

 

Apex Membership ($27,997 One-Time Fee)

da-8

I know you’re probably getting bored of reading these different levels of membership all more outrageously priced than the last one.

I’m bored of it too. But don’t worry because this is the last one.

This one is another retreat to Las Vegas. Only instead of 3 days this one is 7 days long.

Here’s what they cover in the 7 days:

Day 1 Agenda

  • How To Become Financially Free
  • How To Create Additional Income
  • Build Streams Of Cash Flow
  • Secure Your Retirement Income

Day 2 Agenda

  • How the rich get richer
  • Fund your investments with other people’s money
  • Take control of your financial future
  • How to beat wall street

Day 3 Agenda

  • Boost your financial IQ
  • Leverage secrets
  • Invest like the rich
  • create long term wealth strategies

Day 4 Agenda

  • The inner game of wealth
  • How to stay wealthy for life
  • Your financial thermostat
  • The law of attraction

Day 5 Agenda

  • Win the credit score game
  • How to create your own bank
  • Create a tax free retirement
  • How the rich use IRA’s

Day 6 Agenda

  • Awesome asset protection
  • Ultra rich legal tax strategies
  • Risk management tactics
  • Annuity analysis

Day 7 Agenda

  • Rising real estate
  • Hidden markets & no money down
  • Wholesaling and rehabbing profits
  • Time tested tax liens

So this is like getting a full blown business degree all in 7 days….Not really but that’s what they want you to think.

So the information they cover is very appealing and I’m sure there is a lot of great stuff. In fact I have no doubt that this retreat would be helpful to a lot of people.

My concern is that it’s very pricey and I’m sure there have been quite a few people who have been coaxed into splurging on this because they were convinced it would set them on the path to fortune.

Much like business school, there is no guarantee that this will work. Would you take that risk? I wouldn’t, nor would I recommend it.

 

 

Is Digital Altitude A Scam?


In my opinion, NO this is not a scam. But that doesn’t mean I’m giving it my seal of approval. Far from it in fact.

It may not scam people but it certainly does use clever marketing techniques as well as high quality videos and sales pages that mislead people into thinking this is all but a guaranteed way to get rich.

Much like a lot of MLM’s this relies heavily on the recruiting process. If you can’t recruit lots and lots of people into this, you’ll fail.

Sure they give you a whole bunch of training on how to recruit but if you’re a total beginner at selling or internet marketing then you’ll need much more than training to succeed.

Just like any business online or not, it takes a lot of time before you have the ability to reach a large audience.

So you’ll be spending a fortune on this and you most likely won’t see any return on your investment in the first year and that’s if you see any return at all.

 

What I Liked


Well I didn’t really like very much about this program but there are some okay things about it that stood out to me.

  • The topics covered in the training are worth learning
  • The 3 tier commissions would be nice
  • They do talk about affiliate marketing which I like because I have a few websites that make money that way

 

What I Didn’t Like


This is a little bit of a longer list which should give you an idea of why I rated this program so low.

  • It costs money to be an affiliate
  • You can only make commissions from products that you’ve purchased
  • Recruiting is the main object
  • The coaches are just salesmen
  • If you get help closing a deal, you have to share the commission

 

Final Thoughts


This program actually reminded me a lot of another product I reviewed a long time ago called The Empower Network.

Yeah they’re both MLM’s but even more than that they’re set up in a similar way. A lot of people might tell you that this is a pyramid scheme but I disagree.

Sure it’s set up a little like a pyramid scheme but it doesn’t quite fit into that category.

I think you can tell that I’m not a big fan of this program mainly because of the huge financial risk you have to take in order to make money.

Just as your coach inside Digital Altitude will tell you, “you will make way more money if you pay for the highest level membership”.

You may have also read some glowing reviews on Digital Altitude but beware of those because most of those people are probably members just desperately trying to recruit you.

I know from experience that there are way better ways to make money online without having to spend so much money. Hell my top rated program is only $19 for a starter membership and it will give you far better training than this.

Out of all that stuff I think what I hate the most is the fact that the whole point of this system is just to recruit more people to this system.

I just couldn’t get behind that let alone feel any passion about it. Here are my final ratings.

Digital Altitude Review
  • Honesty
  • Integrity
  • Profit Potential

Total

Rating

2.0

Wouldn’t you want to start a business that you can feel good about? Surely you wouldn’t feel good if you were recruiting people into a system where you knew that they’d most likely quit or lose money.

I know I wouldn’t.

So yes I’m sure there are some people out there who are making some money at this but I can only assume that those people got in early and have a long downline.

For anyone thinking about getting in now you’re chances are not good.

I would recommend a few other ways of making money online WAY before you resort to something like this.

I always tell people that the best way to start making money online is with affiliate marketing using your own website.

Sure it’s not easy and it requires work and the willingness to learn but with the right training literally anybody can succeed at it.

Not only that but you have the ability to set it up around any topic you want, meaning you can just chose something you love or something you’re passionate about.

Message me for more details and I’d be happy to discuss it with you personally.

Cheers,

Robert
