If you are reading this because you've been looking for a Digital Veteran Blueprint review wondering whether it's worth getting...you're in the right place. You know it's free, right? But nowadays the majority of online business tutors offer free material or two as an introduction to their premium courses. "Free" doesn't always mean good, particularly when it appears to be a course material but in fact it's just an advertisement, it can guide you in the wrong direction. Some downloadable free products can either waste a lot of your precious time or worse still, trick you into spending a lot of money.
I personally felt that the content of Digital Veteran Blueprint is confusing, and therefore would like to share my opinion in my review today. I hope you can make some sense out of it.

Sales letter/bridge page to another scheme, OPM Wealth
Free to download
What Is Digital Veteran Blueprint?
Digital Veteran Blueprint (DVB), formerly known as Digital Jetsetters, is basically a very lengthy sales letter, inviting you to a pyramid scheme called "OPM Wealth". But instead of a webpage, it's in a downloadable PDF format. The 29-page e-booklet containing over 5,000 words, is written by a former veteran Josh Snyder and the tagline of the book is "Shocking blueprint reveals the fast track way to launching your own thriving side hustle."
Unfortunately though, no such "revelation" can be found anywhere in the booklet. The first 1/3 of the book is spared for an introduction - how the author Josh never used to like his sales job and decided to work for himself. The rest of the booklet is a sales copy across 19 pages, but I find it very hard to understand. The content is so stretched and generic, it doesn't really explain what the business (OPM Wealth) is about. There's a hyperlink to OPM every few paragraphs throughout, so inevitably, you're encouraged to sign up before you can find out a little bit about the system.
A Peculiar Copyright Disclaimer
This e-booklet actually starts off with a copyright disclaimer that says that the content and design of the Digital Veteran Blueprint are protected under US copyright laws, so you're not allowed to share the information with your friends, family, or any third parties. He asks you to encourage them to sign up with digitalveteranblueprint.com themselves to download their copy.
This doesn't quite make sense because although an owner can prohibit reselling his/her product, it's nothing to do with copyright law unless you copy the content word by word and falsely claim yourself as the author of the book. DVB is a free digital material, so there's no strict law to stop you from passing a copy to others privately.
Although he may be misunderstanding the term "copyright laws", that's how he wants to run his business and I would still like to respect his message - just to clarify before I go on.
Confusing and Misleading
Another term that the author seems to be misunderstanding is a "side hustle". He says he's quit his sales job and now has a "digital side hustle lifestyle". A side hustle means a side job in addition to your main job... I think what he wants to say is that he earns more money than he used to without working full-time.
But the real issue I have with DVB (and I think is most critical) is, it barely gives you a hit of how you make money. E-commerce? Affiliate marketing? What do you actually sell?
The word "cryptocurrency" is mentioned in the book, which may give you a clue that it's something to do with an investment. But then the word is only mentioned once. He says that cryptocurrency is "the latest piece of technology" and that digital technology is important for businesses. That's all he says, nothing more.
The "Digital Domino Effect"
As I mentioned earlier, the main content of Digital Veteran Blueprint is a sales copy of another scheme. He says it's about four "digital dominoes" but again, a domino effect is about a chain reaction from one thing to another and I find it hard to interpret it. Perhaps he simply meant to tell you the 4 characteristics of OPM Wealth... Anyway the 4 "digital dominoes" he's referring to are;
- "More eyeballs, more income" - he says that although marketing is important, you don't have to worry about it because he has a team of marketing experts who can help you with whatever this system is. Assuming "more eyeballs" mean "more people", is he saying that you should be working in a team rather than on your own? Nevertheless, experts will be helping you meaning you'll be paying hefty fees to them accordingly.
- "Never Sweat The Tech" - You don't have to have technical skills because you'll be supplied with done-for-you marketing systems such as pre-made sales funnels. But he also says that you need to keep yourself up to date with "what's happening now" in the digital world. So there'll be a training platform, support team, and personal coaching.
- "V.R.O. (Velvet Rope Offer)" Is The Only Way To Go - What he means by "velvet rope" is high-ticket items, i.e. expensive products to sell.
- "Your Co-Pilot To Success" - I think it's overlapping with 1 & 2 above - he once again mentions 1-2-1 personal coaching.
So What Really Is Digital Veteran Blueprint?
So to sum up, Digital Veteran Blueprint is an invitation to a scheme "OPM Wealth". The seller Josh explains that
- The scheme is about selling expensive items.
- You'll be provided with the necessary resources such as sales funnel templates and training.
- But you won't have to worry about the marketing side of it because it's taken care of by the team behind the scheme.
- You'll have your own personal coach, but why you will need one (i.e. what you'll learn from the coach) is unclear.
I indeed signed up with OPM Wealth to find out what it was all about - unfortunately I got bored within minutes for a couple of reasons. Because the Phase-one "training" video is said to be 12-minute long but it's in fact over 30 minutes and the content drags on. Also because it turns out to be merely a general guide, something that I've repeatedly seen over the past decade.
It was narrated by "Andrew Shaw, investigative reporter", but he never showed up on the video therefore he's unlikely to be real. The video has 4 chapters, which are;
- Chapter 1: American Middle Class are Under Attack - He says the US economy has been going downhill in the past 100 years. Inflation rates, vehicle insurance, consumer debt rates, the cost of living has risen by 14%, more than half of Americans have no savings, and so on. That's all he says.
- Chapter 2: The Middle-Class Job May Become Extinct - Because of technology, he says that many manual jobs will disappear "in the next 5 years". Something we've always been discussing for decades!
- Chapter 3: How Wealth is Made Catching Trends - This is confusing because he talks about how franchised restaurants such as McDonald's have made a success by mass-producing. Is OPM about buying a franchise business? Then he starts to mention the famous tech businesses and the owners such as Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon, Netflix but does not explain what they're to do with OPM.
- Chapter 4: Secrets of the Digital Wealth - Finally he moves forward and reveals a little bit about OPM. He says it's about selling expensive "make money" products by using a done-for-you system.
That's Phase 1 of OPM Wealth, and if you want to move on to Phase 2, you'll have to book a telephone call from an advisor.
1-2-1 Coaching, aka Sales Calls
So I stopped there because I don't like speaking to a stranger on the phone without knowing what it's about in advance. I like my freedom online, you see. I would only book a call if I knew there would be value to it; a conversation with someone I care about, or where I need their help or they need my help. I had just watched a strange video about the US economy and business in general, there was no way I could take a call from an advisor, a.k.a. the first sales call so soon.
It seems that the procedure is copied from other schemes such as Super Affiliate Network - where you get lectured about unrelated businesses including franchising and you are required to speak to someone on the telephone before you learn a thing.
"High Ticket" Products
I have seen quite a few programs/schemes that sell "high ticket" items over the past years and the majority of them seem to sell the scheme package itself. The logic they explain is often one-dimensional; If you want to make a revenue of $20,000 and the product you sell is $10 each, you'll have to sell it to 2,000 people. But the product you sell is $10,000, you'll only need to sell it to 2 people, therefore it's "easier to sell high ticket items". And that's what the OPM Wealth video exactly tells you. The problem is, how are you going to find 2 people who can afford to fork out $10,000, whatever the product may be?
Do I Recommend Digital Veteran Blueprint and OPM Wealth?
One thing I already said I didn't like about OPM is the requirement to speak to an "advisor". But there's something else that I don't like, and that's my definitive reason that I don't recommend OPM Wealth.
As well as speaking to an advisor, you are also required to tell the admin what your credit score is. First of all, your credit score is your personal information and it's none of their business unless they are offering a legitimate service such as a free loan. They should clearly explain why they need to know your current credit score, otherwise they have no right to ask you that.
Well, the purpose behind it is clear - to persuade you to borrow the maximum amount of money and spend it all on OPM. You'll be the best target if you have a good credit score and likewise, they won't be interested in you as much if you're heavily in debt already.
There's a line between taking a risk in business and shear gambling; you shouldn't be borrowing money to invest in anything that you're not sure of. I repeat this; your financial situation is none of anyone's business. Beware in case you decide to speak to them and they appear to be helpful. They are NOT your financial advisors.
Digital Veteran Blueprint Pros and Cons
Digital Veteran Blueprint Review - Conclusion:
I personally didn't find any of the content of Digital Veteran Blueprint useful. Too many words with vague expressions that don't quite get to the point, and occasional "get-rich-dream" copies such as "spend just a couple hours on your laptop from a balcony overlooking the Pacific" here and there... It's a sales letter, after all. I personally cannot recommend it to anyone, but it's free, so you might find it differently.
If you ever decide to move forward with this program, I suggest that you understand exactly what you're paying for and learn what your tasks and risks will be before you make any payment.
