Goodwill Review - Brendan Mace & Jono Armstrong
This will be a rather quick review of Goodwill because it’s one of those Warrior+ products that will be here today and gone tomorrow. There are a lot of reviews for this product online all giving it top marks followed by a ton of bonuses if you buy through their link.
First thing. The reviews are there to get commissions even though it’s just a theory product. Secondly, those bonuses offered may sound appealing, but all they do is divert your attention from making money online. They’ll sit on your hard drive, gathering dust, taking up room and becoming outdated quicker than Usain Bolt in a following wind.
Quick Summary of Goodwill By Brendan Mace
- Give away a Freebie (The Lost Code)
- Use the included Aurora Software to gather Instagram followers
- Once you have followers, make posts adding your Freebie Link.
- Theoretically, those who follow you may bite and get the Freebie.
Once they have the Freebie and go through the Lost Code course, they are offered upgrades, and if they buy those upgrades, you get a commission.
Well, let me give you my common sense verdict.
Firstly, the Freebie offered by the Goodwill package ‘The Lost Code’ (A Brendan Mace Product) is about trying to get commissions on big ticket offers. I won’t get into The Lost Code, but all I can say is that it’s a Hell of a lot of theory. Unfortunately, Newbies will try it, lose money and move on. Some may even spend more money trying to work it out. It’s just theory guys. I have not heard from one person (with proof) who has made coin with The Lost Code.
So, you’re giving away a theory. That’s ok…it’s free, right?
It’s Free because inside of it are a myriad of affiliate links that can get you caught up in the web of Brendan Mace…the King of Theory marketing.
A Bit About Brendan Mace
Yes, he’s a successful Internet Marketer, but only because he preys on newbies…and he’s brilliant at it!
Hats off to him for that. I knew of Brendan years ago, when he was just starting out…he even friend requested me back in the day. I knew he would make a great marketer because he was relentless in his quest for money.
Something personal happened, he took stock of his life and came back with this incredible dedication to make money. He is the personification of looking after Number One, which in all honesty, isn’t a bad thing.
He’s made huge amounts of money and could probably quit and never work again, but it’s like an addiction now because he only has to release a product (usually theory or rehashed) and he’s rolling in it again.
Who can blame him? He’s worked incredibly hard to get where he is and I have full respect for him and his determination.
His methods…not so much.
His oppo, Jono Armstrong is much the same. He started out a couple of years ago, sold his soul, moved to the dark side and is now also preying on newbies. He made good content back then, but I guess he found it easier to just sell to those wide-eyed, wet-behind-the-ears new marketers who crop up every day in the hope of making it rich online.
They’ve become successful in what they do in the MMO industry and I’m pretty envious to be honest. Sometimes I wish I had their relentless sociopathic tendencies where they just don’t care about what damage they can do to newbies. It’s all about the moolah.
If that’s the kind of marketer you want to be, then follow them and keep buying their products. If your mindset is strong enough to become like them…go for it!
It’s not for me though…my affiliate marketing is aimed at the general public and not wannabe sociopaths.
Back To The Goodwill Review
Give away a freebie to followers on social media and hope they buy the upgrades that may earn you a commission. That’s the crux of it.
It’s funny because Brendan says he made £3k just by giving this freebie (The Lost Code) away to his subscribers on his birthday…all 60,000+ of them!
Let’s be honest, with 60k subs, promoting ANYTHING will always reap buyers!
In Goodwill, he recommends using the Aurora software, which is included in the Goodwill package, to gather your leads…but the software is sketchy at best with some saying it doesn’t work at all.
In the training, Brendan then recommends using ManyChat as your selling tool. ManyChat uses Facebook messenger to…well, Spam users. It’s an annoying pop-up that jumps into the corner of your screen or phone.
It’s a big learning curve to be able to understand fully what ManyChat does and, in this case, Brendan just skips over it. You are very likely to get banned for Spam anyway, so I’d advise staying the hell away from ManyChat for this kind of marketing!
There are also suggestions inside the lightweight ‘training’ to make videos and join Facebook groups to spew your freebie link to all and sundry.
In my opinion, if you’re relentless in your quest to make money then the Goodwill theory may get you some commissions…not many, but some. You may also get banned from FB and annoy plenty of FB users.
The caveat to all this is that you will spend a lot of time building a following and then see them drop like flies when you Spam them or end up with hundreds of followers that are doing exactly the same as you.
Having looked into this, I won’t be going ahead with Goodwill. I’m always wary of this type of marketing…almost serial spamming. Also, the Aurora software for automatically getting followers on Instagram needs a proxy to work. That’s a red flag to me.
Goodwill Review Summary
At the end of the day, I have to say Goodwill is just theory from Brendan Mace and Jono Armstrong. It’s all just another ploy to get newbies to eventually end up purchasing their own Big Ticket offer further down the line.
I know Goodwill is only $12.95…but the time it takes to faff around with it and then find out it’s pretty useless, is more costly.
I’m afraid anything put out by Brendan Mace and Jono Armstrong has to be taken with a pinch of salt.
Saying that, if you want to join them by promoting theories, you have to be a special kind of person to do so. You have to be unashamed, confident, and guiltless and have superficial charm. There are many of these kind of marketers on Warrior+ selling dodgy theories and getting rich.

Note: This might sound like a rant, but it’s not. I’m merely pointing out there are different types of affiliate marketers out there. If you’re in the MMO niche…be like Brendan and Jono.
But stop buying their shiny objects and create them instead. You won’t make money following theories. Creating your own theory products and selling them to newbies is where the real money is in this particular Make Money Online Niche.
If you don’t think you can be in the same mindset as them, but still want to make money from affiliate marketing, try a different strategy…there are plenty of other ways.
