Review Of The Local Marketing Vault

Local Marketing Group Video

Yup That’s Me Winning The Contest!

Hey what’s up!? Well if you have been on the blog for awhile then you know I run a good amount of websites! Client sites, affiliate sites etc….

Today I wanted to put a quick review of the Local Marketing Vault which was created by James Bonadies & Jason McKim!

Oh.. also listen if you are here and just WANT TO TALK then call me! For real: 973-981-4208

Sometimes I know it is just easier to talk about things that might be holding you back about joining the Local Marketing Vault! I get it… so maybe text me first, so I know I can give you some dedicated time, but yea don’t be afraid call me! OK on to my review!

Two awesome guys who I had the pleasure of meeting a few weeks ago in San Antonio, TX at the very first LMV live event! Yikes… scratch that that was almost 2 years ago! I have now hung out with them numerous times at events LOL!

Pretty awesome and I am still digesting what I learned and making moves to grow my business 10X in this next year!


This Is My 10K Club Award! Pretty Awesome!

I totally digested and have grown my business for sure!! I also made the 10K Club which means I have been bring in 10K a month in revenue! Pretty awesome!

Yikes sorry.. just going over this review and realize it has been a hot minute since I updated it!

Alrighty then… First things first…

You can read a super in-depth review of the Local Marketing Vault on my FitDadChris site here

I decided to create a full review there because I have a lot of dads that visit my site that are always asking me about how to make side money on the internet!

Well this is the way to do it! So go check that out for a more in depth review and watch the video on this page of me winning the Client Getting contest and collecting my prize at the LMV live event.

So like I said go to my fitness site to read the full review, but here I wanted to touch on a few things I have been getting asked the most about “The Vault”!

Who Are Jason & James From The Local Marketing Vault?

  • That is a good question and to be honest from what I have learned about them it could take a long time to write it all out!
  • In short… I got to actually meet them a few weeks ago at the conference. I went out to dinner with them, had some drinks and as you would expect they are super awesome guys!
  • Not only that, they are all about helping people succeed! Seriously!
  • They know their stuff! Jason is a magician when it comes to all things Facebook, Google adwords, and building funnels! When you jump on a weekly live Q&A call you will see why!
  • James is the same way! He has been doing internet marketing for a long time and it shows.
  • They best thing about them is the support you get! You will get tons of support, in fact Jason will usually answer peoples questions via facebook in a video and he has answered my personal PM’s with in depth video explanations!

In short when they talk we listen! The campaigns they have put together in the vault are priceless! Sign up, follow them, collect money from clients! Simple as that!

What Is It? In A Nutshell?

  • Essentially you are getting training in all aspects of marketing… how to get clients.. how to talk and close clients.
  • The biggest beauty if the vault is the pre-built campaigns that you basically just spin up and get running. Obviously there is a little more work to it then that, but once you understand how to do it, it is very simple. I can have Vault campaign up and running in about 1 hour.. then it just needs to get approved by facebook or Google
  • So simply put everything you need to start your own Marketing Agency is in the Vault! You can obviously use this for your own business as well.


So you can see in that screen shot everything that is offered! Most of those have sub topics in them too! And.. Jason keeps them up to date! He even went in and updated all the Google Ads training after Google updated their dashboard!

Oh you didn’t know there was Google Ads training? There is a FULL PPC Mastery course included in the vault!

Again if you are here then you probably know a good amount about the system already, but in case you have no idea what the Local Marketing Vault is, well that is basically it.


Oh and don’t forget our amazing Facebook group for support, on-boarding for new students, weekly calls with Jason, James, and other coaches!

Still the best marketing course I have ever purchased hands down!

Is The Local Marketing Vault A Scam?

  • What do you think? I get it, I get it. I pretty much search the same thing when looking into a new group or program and trust me I have bought my share of scams! LOL!
  • This my friend is not a scam at all! Just look at the image of the Facebook group! 1,745MEMBERS!  Well I had to update that because as of December 19, 2020 there are 4,654 MEMBERS that all paid to get into this group! Not a scam my friend… not a scam!

Great So How Much Does The Local Marketing Vault Cost?

  • Cost can vary depending on a few things…
  • As case studies increase, student testimonials, etc… like any course the price will increase.
  • All I can tell you is how I paid which was via credit card and monthly payments. If I had paid in full I could have saved some money, but I was nervous and went with the monthly route. Hindsight I would have just paid in full… same money sitting on my credit card either way LOL!!
  • The reason the price ranges is for a few reasons
    • Special promotions that might be going on
    • Scholarships are sometimes offered
    • How you want to pay… monthly, full, first born child…that sort of stuff 😉

Clearing UP LMV COSTS Further:

I don’t give exact numbers because when I signed up there was less people in the vault, less campaigns & less training. The guys are constantly bringing new training into the vault which is awesome. I will say this as I said above you can pay in full or get on a monthly plan… those plans might vary… so you are either looking at $x,xxx or $xxx. I just don’t want to plant a number in your head and then it be different.

UPDATE 12/19/2019: They do offer various packages now Just FYI!

When I wrote this I didn’t give exact costs because I didn’t want to put a number in peoples heads. I had paid $3500 to get into the program and that was in 2017. The course probably has at least 4 times the information it had when I joined so of course the cost would go up, but again I never knew the exact costs people signed up with. I do know they offer some packages that can range from like $4,000 – $7,500 which gets you access to certain levels of the course. Now again don’t quote me on this or going saying.. ehhhhh Chris said it costs this much. I AM NOT A COACH! I don’t work for them, so I have no idea what specials they are running or what they are doing. Just know those are the numbers you need to be comfortable with. Now if the course was $10,000 would I have joined? I really don’t know to be honest, but I know even if it was 10k it would have been worth it now.

OK… you happy now? There are some cost numbers for ya! 😉

This was the most expensive program I have ever joined and I don’t regret it one bit! I know cost is an issue and you might have been burned before… all I can say is get on a call and talk with a coach and find out or again CALL ME 973-981-4208. I will say this… look at this image below…. this was a recent check made from following what The Vault Teaches.

I have already paid my VAULT TUITION over and over with earnings, but this check would give you an idea give or take with what you need to get in the vault! I also wrote this post in March after being in The Vault for 6 months.. this check is from July 2018! #THISSTUFFWORKS I want to see you there doing it too!!

UPDATE: I know that check is from 2018 so I just made a screen shot from my WaveApps program to show income as well that is up to date. These are just clients who pay me via waveapps… I also have Paypal and people who just sent checks, plus a few other avenues of revenue! All in all yea…. #THISSTUFFWORKS 2020 and beyond!!

Oh I also did an update video a few months back so check that out. I go over some common questions I get etc…

Local Marketing Vault Video Review 2019 – YUP STILL WORKS!

In Conclusion

So I mean if you go this far, I think you can put the SCAM things aside… the will it work for me stuff aside. I think you most likely will just want to talk it out… so again CALL ME 973-981-4208.

I have been doing internet marketing since 2006 and had my ups and downs for sure! I was chasing the old ways of doing things and joining the vault has opened my eyes to new ways and I am not stopping anytime soon! I am on track to hit 10k a month in the next 45 days and from there….. sky is the limit! Yup already there!

Please ask any questions below or give me  call! Thanks!



  1. Stacey on March 15, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    How long does it really take before you can start making some money? thanks

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on March 15, 2018 at 6:35 pm

      Hey Stacey that is one of those questions that all depends. I mean honestly.. with what I know now if you came to me and said you have a dentist that needs help I could literally have them getting leads in 1-2 days and you could get paid! …but once you sign up you are going to want to just block out a few days or a few hours a day and get right into the videos and “TRUST THE PROCESS”

      It really is all laid out for you, you just need to watch the videos and listen to what Jason and James say. It really is that easy! Of course I am always here for you and the people in the FB group.. which is awesome by the way! Hope that helps!

    • Austin on March 1, 2019 at 4:32 am

      Hey just wondering since it seems like no activity recently if you hit your $10k goal yet?

      I’m going to schedule a call asap!

  2. Leah on March 28, 2018 at 8:07 pm

    Can you email me the cost at the time you paid? I PMd Jason last year and he gave me a price but I don’t want to ask again. I’m sure it’s gone up by now. Thanks!

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:46 pm

      Hi sorry for the late reply… I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.

      • darren on October 18, 2018 at 3:29 pm

        Hmmm you haven’t really cleared anything up though

        • Mr.Whack-A-Host on December 19, 2019 at 6:26 pm

          Hey this is an old post, but sorry about that. I had paid $3500 to be in the vault, but that was early in 2017 when the vault just started. Truth is there are different packages now, so you can pay anywhere from probably $4,000-$7,000 but the truth is, are you really going to do it either way… I mean if you look at something being offered that seems LEGIT, life changing, amazing etc… but then you see its XXXX are you really going to just move on? Are you not going to really think about investing in a business that costs less than so many others to start? And of course there are payment plans

  3. Vanessa on April 5, 2018 at 6:09 am

    So how much money did you end up paying? Can you at least give us a range please?

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:52 pm

      Hi sorry for the late reply… I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.

  4. Stephen on April 5, 2018 at 9:51 am

    What puts me off is nowhere online, or in any videos or emails, does it say how much it costs!

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:52 pm

      Hi sorry for the late reply… I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.

    • Joe on November 17, 2018 at 5:33 pm

      The problem is when no one shows you the cost it’s either too expensive or a high monthly type subscription. Also, their marketing funnels are designed for you to call them, then when you call they take you on a 45 minute “teach you how to do” session to hype you up. It’s so convincing that you will join their program at whatever price they stated. Basically, their sales are so convincing that you would feel stupid not to buy into it. And that is their process. It’s brilliant if you ask me.

      But again, I understand that that is their sales process and it works for them. And this blog is an extension of that sales. Sure the canned response back to this query is: “I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.” which is a bunch of BS. The blogger knows well and good how much it is. Either it’s the author blasting multiple types of channels to help get more leads inquiring about this system or it’s an affiliate who created this blog to convince you to join so they can make an affiliate commission.

      Either way, I think the program sounds like a viable opportunity because I have seen similar but this one has convinced me it’s better than those I come across from. But I know what the cost is for those other systems but I don’t know the cost of this system.

      • Mr.Whack-A-Host on December 19, 2019 at 6:28 pm

        Joe sorry for this late reply, but I am sure this would help other people. Reason being I did not say what I paid at the time was because the pricing structure was different. I had also paid $3500 at the time and this was in 2017… the program is not prob 4 times what it was when I started so the price had gone up and I didn’t want to plant the cost seed in peoples heads…. I mean heck I guess if I wanted to I could just have said I paid $7500, but I wanted to be honest….. Now there are some different tiers you can join in and I believe they range from $3500 – $7,000 but don’t quote me on it. Again I am not a coach… I don’t run the company and I know they are always doing different things for different people. If you truly want to get in the program and money is an issue they will help you.

  5. Day on April 29, 2018 at 2:41 pm

    Can you give a ball park figure as to how much it cost? ( monthly) I’ve done so many programs and I just don’t want to feel less than if it’s not affordable on the call.

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:52 pm

      Hi sorry for the late reply… I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.

  6. Carlos Cortes on May 10, 2018 at 8:37 pm

    I am very interested in applying for the Local Marketing Vault. What are the financial requirements? I would have to do monthly payments which I did for another program (JK) and paid off. Please email me a ballpark monetary figure. I’d like to jump on a call knowing I can afford this program and not waste anyone’s time. Thank you!

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:53 pm

    I am still looking for the cost of the course whether you are paying in full or broken down into payments as you avoid this information in your article

      Up top James!! lol

  10. Sam on July 2, 2018 at 6:20 pm

    It’s clear this programme may be of great help but does cost. However important before I waste my time and the course leaders’ time, to understand roughly what kind of monetary investment.
    Hundreds or thousands?
    Without knowing at all, it’s a non starter

  11. Karen on July 3, 2018 at 1:19 pm

    Sounds great. Is it expensive to get started?

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:54 pm

  12. Peter McNees on July 8, 2018 at 11:35 am

    Can I just buy their software as I don’t have time for the rah!rah! webinar B.S. routine…I’m over webinars as the first 45 mins is always selling me the dream of “working in my p.j.’s” and the second part is “solving medical bills or sending my parents on a cruise”…I just want the software they’re selling. What’s the final price with all of the up-sells from page to page to page?

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:55 pm

      Haha Peter I get that for sure! There is no webinar… you get on a live call… Just get on with them and tell them your intent! I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.

  13. Jodene Blankenship on July 15, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    I see the “How much does it cost?” …question but there wasn’t a straight answer. Can you tell me how much the Local Marketing program costs?

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:55 pm

      Hi sorry for the late reply… I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.

  14. Vruttik Bhatt on July 18, 2018 at 12:19 am

    looking to learn how to get clients by James and Jason’s strategy, My Main concern is how much money have to invest into the program, even if its monthly payment, please let me know.

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:55 pm

      Hi sorry for the late reply… I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.

  15. Roger on July 23, 2018 at 9:56 pm

    I understand that price can vary. Can we get a price range then of what the program will cost? A ball park figure will work. Are we talking hundreds of dollars? Thousands of dollars? Tens of thousands?

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:56 pm

      Hi sorry for the late reply… I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” section above.

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:56 pm

      Hey I love it still. You can see above… I edited cost info in the “Clearing UP COSTS Further” and just added 1 nice commission check for July 2018

      • Mr.Whack-A-Host on December 19, 2019 at 6:30 pm

        Hi just updating this post and its 12/19/2019 and it is still going strong with now 4,654 members in the group! I am doing better then ever in my business!

  18. EG on July 28, 2018 at 6:45 am

    Do they go into client acquisition? Do they use cold emails, cold calls, FB funnels, etc?? Also, do they teach a sales process?

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 7:57 pm

      Yes they go into all of it! You learn a ton of ways on how to get clients, talk to them, close them etc…..

  19. Mo on July 28, 2018 at 3:53 pm

    How much is the course. I tried booking a call and it asks if I have the finances to jump on. I do not know how much it is so i don’t know if I have money for the full amount. And I’ve searched everywhere. Thank you

  21. Frankie on August 8, 2018 at 2:04 pm

    Hey this is a great review and thanks for clearing up the costs a bit more! Honestly I have wasted money and invested money in a lot of different programs. If I know a program works or will work I have no problems investing $1,000, $5,000, $10,000 even if I know it works. From people I have talked to and what I have read it looks like the Local Marketing Vault is legit. I have one question for you! What is your take on the profit league vs local marketing vault? Profit league seems to be offering similar items. TIA

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 10, 2018 at 8:08 pm

      I hear ya there Frankie! I do agree… like I said the Vault was the biggest amount of money I ever put out on a program, but again 100% worth it! As far as the profit league, I have heard of it, but I honestly don’t know much about it. I know there are def a handful of other systems/programs out there that probably work, but I just don’t have the hands on experience. I have heard profit league costs more from a few people, but again I have no clue 100%… All I know is this… and take it for what it is worth, but I have been doing online marketing since 2006 and what is Taught in the vault is pretty much everything you need to know to succeed online! Sure you get there blueprint/pre-made funnels that work, but you are also learning how to be a marketer from getting a client to closing a client and thinking outside the box. Also the support is top notch! I hope this helps you a bit!

  22. Samuel Soto on August 8, 2018 at 3:48 pm

    question I have reviewed several programs can’t find anywhere how much it cost?
    Are there payment plans?

    I am looking for a career change. I have physical challenges that cause me chronic pain and cannot hold a job and I am limited hours at a computer. I have been searching hard to try and find something that will be a good fit for my situation. I was wondering how much is there to actually learn and how many hours do I have to devote to get everything up and running? How many hours a day to monitor each ad campaign? Ie. Does it require 2, 4, 6 or 8 hours a day to get it up and going and then to maintain?

    Thank you!

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on August 14, 2018 at 8:09 pm

      Honestly if you can block out a few hours a day to training to get going you should be go to go. To monitor campaigns honestly takes very little time… I will normally take a peak at my campaigns a few times a day for a minute or two.. so honestly maybe an hour a week on a campaign. If leads slow down or something seems off you might need to troubleshoot, but that doesn’t happen often. Hope that helps.

  24. Jason on August 30, 2018 at 10:19 pm

    hey so how much do the leads cost you on average? like if a persona injury attorney is paying you $3000 a month to source leads, usually in a crowded market those leads cost $10, $20…even $50 or more per. are they paying $3000/mo to you guys to source them leads PLUS their per lead cost / ad cost / PPC cost?

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on September 4, 2018 at 5:21 pm

      Hey Jason I have never ran these campaigns personally, but in the training says FB leads are anywhere from $35-85 a lead and Adwords $50-100 a lead with a conversion rate of 8%-20%
      You would really need to come up with an ad spend with them and a retainer to run it. That is why we like to do trials in the beginning to get a feel for cost per lead in that specific area and how the client is actually handling them. That gives a better idea on how to move forward with ad spend and retainer… hope that makes sense.

  25. Greg on October 27, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    You keep replying the same when asked how much you paid or when asked a ball park figure you say to refer to the section “clearing up costs further” but it doesn’t state the answer anywhere. That could mean 100 to 1000 or 999 to 9999. Please be more clear. Im very interested but don’t want to waste their time or mine by booking a call just to find out that i can’t afford it. Please clear this up. Thank you

    How much is the cost of Chatbot Masters University compared to Local Marketing Vault?

    • Mr.Whack-A-Host on December 19, 2019 at 6:32 pm

      I have no idea what that is to be honest with you… I know a lot of people in the group are really good with chatbots, but I honestly have not messed with them at all.
