What is Jumpcut Viral Academy?

Jumpcut Viral Academy Review


Product Name: Jumpcut Academy

Owner: Jesse & Kong

Price to Join: $197/month; $997 (one-time payment)

My Rating: 6.8 out of 10.0 

Jumpcut Academy is a training course that  claims to teach people on how to make money through YouTube. It covers a wide variety of topics related to YouTube.

The entire training is divided into a main course and bonus courses. By the way, Jesse and Kong, the creators of this training course have a successful channel on YouTube by the name of ‘Simple Pickup’. This training program is their attempt to enable common people to make a full-time income on YouTube.

In this review, I will take a closer look at this product and try to determine whether this is a scam or not. This review is based on my honest research about it. I recommend that you read the entire review before thinking about buying this product.

How Does Jumpcut Viral Academy Work?

Now let us take a look at the different ways of earning money from the compensation plan of this company.

Training Courses

  • Viral Academy
  • Growth Hacking Facebook
  • The Art of Vlogging
  • The Legalities of Youtube
  • Musicians on Youtube
  • JK Empire
  • Gaming For Dollars
  • Behind The Scenes Conversations
  • Jumpcut Radio
  • Master The Funny

The following are the different training courses that are part in the program.

The Viral Academy

This is a step-by-step course about getting started and making a full-time income from YouTube. The entire length of this training course is 5 hours and 12 minutes. This part of the course is taught by Jesse, Kong and many others.

Growth Hacking Facebook

This part of the training is about getting a lot of likes on Facebook in a relatively short amount of time. James Shamshi is going to teach you about growth hacking Facebook.

He has accomplished a lot by using his strategies for growth hacking and he has growth hacked a Facebook page into 1.6 million likes in less than 7 months.

The Art of Vlogging

You will learn about how to be a successful vlogger from David So. David has grown his channel to more than 1 million subscribers and this part of the training is going to be useful for those who are interested in vlogging.

It can be horrible to lose your channel because of repeated copyright infringement. You will be taught how to avoid copyright infringement and protect your channel.

Musicians on Youtube

It is true that YouTube can provide you with a lot of exposure if you do it right. The training will teach you how to jumpstart your YouTube music channel.

The JK Empire

You will see the life of JK Family in this part of the training.

Gaming For Dollars

Jirard Khalil will teach you how to make a living by playing video games.

Behind The Scenes Conversations

This part of the training is about the conversations between successful YouTubers so that you can learn from them. This entire course is about 5 hours and 58 minutes long, which means that there is a lot of useful information in this part.

Jumpcut Radio

You will hear about the journey of content creators from 1 to 100k+ followers.

Master The Funny

This is the last bonus course and it is about comedy. You will learn about developing and refining the skill of comedy.

There is a lot of information in the training and you will get the chance to learn from many successful people. I like the fact that the training is not limited to a certain niche, but it covers many different niches in YouTube. You will obviously benefit by learning from people who have done something successfully.

The issue that I have is that the training is not going to teach you something that is unheard of. The training dives into so many topics that it is easy to get confused.

Still, I would say that the training is of good quality and certainly better than many products out there.

How Much Does It Cost to Join?

Jumpcut Academy costs for $997 (one-time  payment) or $197month.

The price is really high in my opinion. On the other hand, they still offer a 365 day money back guarantee, but you need to complete certain assignments to get your money back.

How Much Can You Earn?

Your earnings will depend on many factors, including the niche that you pick and your hard work. The training is good, but it can’t guarantee your success.

YouTube can allow you to earn thousands of dollars per month and live a boss free lifestyle. The problem is that your chances of earning a full-time income aren’t too bright.

There is a lot of competition on YouTube and all of the niches covered in the training are highly competitive. Many people who are successful in those niches started years ago when there was much less competition. It is going to take a lot of time and effort to see results in competitive niches.

I think most people will struggle to make money even after following the training. Some people will indeed reach a full-time income, but it can take years of hard work before they succeed.

Are There Any Complaints?

Yes, and I have listed some of the major concerns below.

  • The price of the training is really high and may overwhelm beginners.
  • It can be hard to make money through the training.

Bottom Line

In my opinion, Jumpcut Academy is definitely not a scam. It offers some reliable information that you can use to make your own online business. They also offer training and courses that can give you the basics of online marketing.

But I must say that this program is somehow expensive. So you must think several times before you invest your hard earned money. It can be an issue to some people who are tight in budget. The money back guarantee is there, so it is a good way to lessen the risk

Nevertheless, I still leave the final decision in your hands. Good luck and choose wisely.


  • Teaches the basics of online marketing
  • Plenty of training and courses


  • Somehow Costly
  • Can be overwhelming for some people
  • Support can be improved

How Can You Earn Money Online?

It seems that you want to invest in Jumpcut Academy because you already discovered the earning potential of having your own online business. It also feels like that you are already tired of earning not that much money from your current job.

But I must say that this kind of business is not that easy. It requires patience and great support in order to succeed.

Now, if you are still looking for other ways of earning, then you can also look into my personal favorite. My best suggestion would be through making your own online business with a support from community.

Basically, you will earn by just following your passion.

Right now, I am on my second year in this community and want to share my success with you.

I can see why viral Academy won’t guarantee success, there is a lack of support from the owners, there is only the training given that you should follow and no one else to help you besides going through the training. 

It sounded good at the beginning, but when I saw the price, my jaw dropped. I know YouTube can make you a lot of money, once you’re in, you’re in, but for me wanting to start out and try Viral Academy, it’s not worth it to pay so much just to try it out.

Thank you for this post and to read what you had to say about this program.

All the best.

    When you want to invest on a certain program, you should think several times before making a decision. In this way, you will not be able to waste your money and time. As for Jumpcut Viral Academy, the initial cost of joining is high so it would be better if you look first into your budget before going for it.

Dave - July 10, 2019

I’ve been thinking of expanding my blog into a Youtube channel. When the time comes I may want to buy the annual subscription for one year to get the training. Seems like Jumpcut is one of the best YouTube training programs out there, but I’d have to be in the position to capitalize on the big $$ investment.

Perhaps Jumpcut in the future – for now I there’s more to learn at a MUCH better price at Wealthy Affiliate.

    john rico - July 25, 2019

    Jumpcut Viral Academy is a good platform if you have enough money to invest. Youtube is a lucrative platform so If you think that you are ready to expand then you can take advantage of this program.

Jerry - July 10, 2019

Personally I am always a little bit skeptical about opportunities in the high ticket area like Jumpcut Viral Academy is. This is underlined by your article where I cannot find a clear cut way of what to do to make money. Yes they offer a lot of training, but what do they actually train you to do. As with many of such programs it is a lot of words, but no real contents. Can I take it that their site was not too informative in detail? I fully agree with you though, that they charge you a lot of money and it looks like when you sign-up you will take some risk. On the basis of the information you have given, I would not step in.

    john rico - July 23, 2019

    High ticket programs like Jumpcut Viral Academy still offers some helpful information on how you can earn online. But since the cost of joining is high compared to other online platforms then you should think several times before investing your time and money.

Dave Sweney - July 10, 2019

This is a new course that I had heard about and wanted to get more details to see if it was worth my time and money. So many products are simply a waste as they do not deliver what is promised. This one seems to be semi-legitimate, albeit one that may not be worth my time, based on your review.

Some of the bonus training is of interest and the front end product may be okay as well, but I think it is overpriced. That is a lot of money for a product that you can glean the lessons from for free with a little research and time. I would rather spend that money on my business for other things.

There is money to be made online, so the premise of the training makes sense. There are ways to learn how to make that money without paying, and there are platforms that will teach you how to make money at a much more reasonable cost. The one that you highlight (Wealthy Affiliate) is a perfect example.

    john rico - July 18, 2019

    Thank you for sharing your personal opinion about jumpcut viral academy. This will surely help those people who ate still thinking if this online platform is worth it or not. 

RoDarrick - July 10, 2019

This is an interesting review about jumpcut viral academy. I have always wanted to run a YouTube channel by myself to which I can actually major in playing video games as a niche but then, I learnt about the competitiveness of the market and that’s been the major setback for me.  However, I thought I would be willing to learn through this product but then, the pricing is way too out of budget for me. Maybe if I were able to stack up some cash, then I might actually go for it. Thanks

    john rico - July 16, 2019

    Youtube is a lucrative source of income. It is another platform that anyone can access to earn some extra bucks. On the other hand, you should have the education on how you can use it. Jumpcut Viral Academy offers this education but you should also remember that it will cost some money to learn from them.

Riaz Shah - May 15, 2019

Another high ticket program! Something about these programs is really off, it’s like they charge high to take in people who can afford to buy their upsells inside and after that, nothing special but the same old generic program that they rehash from somewhere else. Great review as always, that’s very generous of you giving it a 6.8 John, I would have given it lower maybe a 4.5!

    john rico - June 18, 2019

    There are really plenty of High Ticket Programs like Jumpcut Viral Academy. Although they offer some value, the cost of joining is somehow not that accessible for all of us. So if you have the budget, then you can try and test the waters with this program.

Andres Agudelo - May 15, 2019

Even if you know a lot of things you have to be passionate about youtube to be part of the jumpcut. As I read on your post, their main focus is on youtube, so I think you should have some skills before joining them, as per you said, it may be overwhelming for beginners. You need to follow some steps to make it possible and you need to find a niche that fits your passions as well as it is not that competitive, something that is really hard nowadays. 

However, I appreciate the time you took to write this review, focusing on the real benefits and cons of the course you have ahead. I think there are cheaper courses that have really good quality content.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

    john rico - June 15, 2019

    Being passionate on the program that you invest your time and effort is crucial in your success. As for the Jumpcut Viral Academy, even if they offer some training and lesson on how you can earn online, you should still do your part be passionate in learning all of it. In this way, your path going to success will not be that hard.

Sujandar Mahesan - May 15, 2019

From reading your article I understand that Jumpcut Viral Academy is not a scam. It is great to know that they offer great step by step course for making money through Youtube. But the biggest downfall is the price. I can’t afford that much. May be I will save money and buy the yearly subscription.

Thank you so much for sharing about this.

    john rico - June 11, 2019

    Youtube is a good platform for earning online as long as you know the process. Jumpcut Viral Academy offers these steps but you should be ready on the resources that you need to invest.

Shui Hyen Hiew - May 15, 2019

Hi John,

Thank you for sharing this Jumpcut Viral Academy review. This is the first time l heard about this program and l think it is good for people who want to learn YouTube marketing albeit it’s a bit pricey. 

But l would stick to Wealthy Affiliate where success is almost guaranteed if you work hard and be consistent. Further, you are provided with Youtube training by Jay Weekly Class.

Best Wishes and Take Care

    john rico - June 6, 2019

    Yes, you are right. Jumpcut Viral Academy offers ways for you to earn online through the Youtube platform. If you are interested in this online platform then you can definitely take a look at this program. But you should remember that you need to invest above average money to benefit from it.
