PROJECT BREAKTHROUGH Product Overview
Project Breakthrough appeared at the beginning of 2016.
Project Breakthrough makes many claims.
It claims to be the “Industry’s first step-by-step most comprehensive training” in online marketing.
It claims that people who follow the training will be earning money within 14 days – $1000 per month is mentioned- even complete beginners.
It claims to teach you everything you need to know to build a money-making funnel.
It claims that the training is FREE
The Good & the Bad
- Free to join initially
- I am really stuck to find any more pros!
- The video lessons are too long.
- In order to progress you MUST do as Vick tells you.
- You must buy the recommended products in order to follow the lessons.
- There are much better products available than the ones he recommends.
- There is no point in continuing beyond lesson 6 unless you have bought the Elite membership.
- Therefore the claim that they are FREE is totally false.
My personal experience with PROJECT BREAKTHROUGH
When I first came across Project Breakthrough it struck me as just what I had been searching for. I had been “working” in online marketing for a time, but I soon realised that I was merely dabbling!
What I really needed some good basic training to enable me to become properly established.
Project Breakthrough promised this, and as it was free to sign up, I decided that I had nothing to lose by doing so. I had heard of Vick Strizheus as someone who had been extremely successful in Empower Network, so I thought that he might be the right person to teach me what I knew needed to know.
- The training consists of a series of videos which promise to take you through each step you need.
- They were advertised as being able to take you from complete beginner (or from whatever point you were at) to being able to earn $1000 per month within 14 days.
- There is one video to watch every day, and each video has to be watched to the very end before you can progress to the next one.
- The videos are too long because Vick really likes the sound of his own voice – the same information could easily be delivered in half the time.
- The quality of the training is really not that great!
It wasn’t long before I realised that this so-called training was not really designed to help me; rather it was to help him expand his business!
Each video was accompanied by a tick box of various tasks which you are asked to complete. Some of these tasks consisted of signing up to various programs which you were told you must have in order to succeed.
Almost all of these extras were designed to get you to part with your money in order to be able to use them. It didn’t take much working out to realise that they were programs either owned by him or that he was an affiliate of them.
So much for FREE training!
But if didn’t stop there.
You were asked to become an affiliate for Project Breakthrough, and it was apparent that if you were to progress with this training it was necessary to join his “Elite” program, at a cost of $297 per month!
He also recommended his co-program, High Traffic Academy, where a number of additional training segments could be purchased, each at a minimum cost of $177.
At that point I did what I should have done before ever embarking on the program – I searched online for some unbiassed information about it, and I came across some quite disturbing information.
Vick Strizheus had started several similar programs, had made incredible amounts of money from them, had been banned from promoting in some states in the USA and had even been prosecuted for fraud.
Once I learned that, the decision to leave the training was made for me, luckily without parting with any of the money that had been requested. Despite the guarantees which they offer, I know that a number of people are still trying to get their money back.
Who is PROJECT BREAKTHROUGH For?
Project Breakthrough is really aiming at beginners in the online marketing field, who will not have heard of them before. It claims to teach them all they need to know to be able to earn a considerable amount of money within 14 days.
It is obviously designed to appeal to those who are looking for a “get rich quick” opportunity, and people are offered the chance to become an Affiliate with his company which strangely he refuses to name!
PROJECT BREAKTHROUGH – Tools & Training
- Series of 14 Video lessons

PROJECT BREAKTHROUGH Support
The Support was practically non-existent. You could try to contact them, but you were very unlikely to get an answer.
Students were specifically told NOT to ask questions, but to do exactly as they were told.
It was possible to make comments below each lesson.
I found it sad that the majority of the comments were from people who had been completely taken in by Vick Strizheus. They tended to rave about the videos and appeared to willingly part with their money.
But there was a significant number of people who obviously felt cheated by the demands for membership payment, and also several who were bemoaning the fact that they had not been able to get a refund or any reply from Support.
PROJECT BREAKTHROUGH Price
- Free to sign up
- Elite membership (needed to complete the course of 14 lessons)…….$297/year
- 17 High Traffic Academy modules (optional but highly recommended by them)……$177-$997/year
My Final Opinion of PROJECT BREAKTHROUGH
Having tasted this product, I would strongly advise anyone not to go near it unless they have more money than sense! Affiliates end up earning very little money after parting with a large amount. As far as I can see, the affiliate side of the business is geared to benefit the owners rather than the affiliates.
To get a thorough, ethical and scam-free training in every conceivable aspect of Online Marketing that you could need to learn, my own recommendation would be Wealthy Affiliate.
