What Is Jumpcut?

By Derek Lakin
Updated on: Jan 17, 2018

Founded by seven of the biggest social media influencers in the world, who collectively have over 10,000,000 subscribers and billions of views, Jumpcut Academy 2.0 promises to offer captivating online courses that can help you follow in their footsteps.

Specifically, the website reports you’ll learn how to create original content, develop a dedicated online following, and monetize your videos so that you can make money while doing something you’re passionate about. Bonus content also covers topics like gaming, legal issues, making music, and growth hacking Facebook, to name just a few.

And because these videos bring “the best practices from the entertainment industry to online education,” Jumpcut claims you’ll binge watch them instead of falling asleep from boredom. Together, this is why we’re told more than 10,000 Academy members have found success already.

The spotlight videos shown on the Jumpcut website are filled with success stories. But will their course make you one as well? In other words, can you expect to have everything you need to become a “highly-paid YouTuber that gets to follow your passion in life”?

Over the next few minutes, we’ll help you learn more about this central question. First, we’ll start with their paid course, and then quickly look at what’s included in their free option.

Taking a Closer Look at Jumpcut’s Main Course

According to People.com, the top nine YouTubers collectively earn in excess of $54 million per year, with more than 120 million combined subscribers. To help their students move one step closer to achieving their own YouTube success, the main Jumpcut Academy course is broken down into five stages:

  • Stage 1: Social Media Secrets – Here, we’re told you’ll learn all their “magical” strategies for making a living as a YouTuber.”
  • Stage 2: Launch Your Own Channel – This is where you’ll find your passions and interests and use them to create a “perfect channel idea that’s primed for success.”
  • Stage 3: Viral Marketing Masterclass – You’ll learn “the art and science of virality.”
  • Stage 4: Influencer Intel – How to use your viral marketing to build a large audience of tens of millions of fans.
  • Stage 5: Paid to Promote – At this stage, you’ll learn how to make money from your videos and potentially rake in millions, just like the program’s creators.

In addition to the standard sections, the Jumpcut website advertises three free ‘upgrades’:

  • Viral Academy Bootcamp – A five-week intensive with up to 19 other students, where members will “complete daily challenges for the chance to win money and private one-on-one mentorships with the instructors.”
  • Private Community – Around the clock access to support, advice, and motivation to help you continue following your passion.
  • Video Review System – A gamified method of receiving fantastic in-depth feedback on your content.

While this was all the information provided on Jumpcut’s website, based on what we learned from some of the founder’s comments on Reddit, “each of these new videos is accompanied with a step-by-step structured assignment that gives you an exact work plan on how to accomplish the goals set out in each video. This ensures that you have no questions about how to implement what you learned in each lesson.”

Based on our email conversation with COO Peter Lu (more about this in a moment), we learned the platform provides approximately 15 hours of audio and video content, in addition to online written resources, including “summaries of every video, assignments for every concept, and a YouTube startup guide and resources bible.”

He adds there are also “innumerable hours of content on our forum,” including “the 50+ best posts by our instructors and most active members on how to edit, how to make thumbnails, success stories, and insider tips.”

In addition to posting on the forum for advice, members can add their videos to Jumpcut’s peer review system mentioned above and receive “real, blunt, honest feedback on how to improve your content.”

Which Instructors Teach Jumpcut’s Main Course?

We’re told this course is taught by seven different instructors across five teams:

  • David So (DavidSoComedy) – 1.4M subs, 245M views. Specialty: Comedy Vlogging
  • Aryia (simplesexystupid) – 900K subs, 100M views. Specialty: Blog Marketing
  • Joe & Bart (justkiddingnews) – 1.6M subs, 1B views. Specialty: Brand Deals
  • Jesse & Kong (simplepickup) – 2.7M subs, 325M views. Specialty: Digital Products
  • Vitaly (vitalyzdtv) – 9.2M subs, 1.3B views. Specialty: Viral Videos

What About Jumpcut’s YouTube Influencer 101 Course?

Comparatively, there are four videos in this free series:

Video #1: The Channel Idea Scorecard – This video primarily acts as an overview about what you’ll learn in the remainder of the course, although they do emphasize that Kevin Kelly’s 1,000 True Fans guideline (i.e., finding a core group of people who loves what you put out and who will be interested in buying what you produce) is perhaps the single most critical piece of advice you should know.

From there, they’ll outline a framework to help show you how to find these fans, for coming up with passion-based channel ideas that have a high chance of being successful, and by providing a step-by-step system for building profitable channels. However, they emphasize that there’s no magic pill and that this is going to take real work:

  • Step 1: Magical idea – List out at least 12 topics you’re passionate about. Ask three questions for each: On a scale of 1-5, how big is the audience? How much do people care? How passionate are you about the topic? Tallying up the highest scoring topics and using their Remix Strategy (revealed in video two) will allow you to enter a competitive niche and still be able to go viral.
  • Step 2: Build an audience
  • Step 3: Monetize your audience

Video #2: The Remix Strategy – Here, you’ll learn about the proprietary Remix Strategy, which involves coming up with viral video ideas that are primed to be shared around social media, without needing to truly be ‘original’ yourself. We’re told this is how SimplePickup channel founders Jesse and Kong were able to have their videos reach more than one million views—and sometimes more than 20 or 30 million views.

According to Peter Lu, “It’s the difference between trying to speculate on uncertain trends, and knowing an exact formula for creating killer video ideas that are almost guaranteed to succeed.”

Video #3: The Traits of Virality – The three specific psychological triggers—telling a story, eliciting emotions, and having a unique perspective—that cause people to share your video with their friends and make it go viral.

While these might seem like common sense, Peter emphasizes that how they’re implemented is what separates successful YouTubers from those who are near obscurity.

Video #4: The Influencer Economy – In the fourth and final video training, Peter notes that you’re walked through the story of how Jesse and Kong were able to “go from college dropouts to successful entrepreneurs who built their first YouTube channel into a multi-million dollar online business.”

From there, Jesse will walk you through some of the key mindsets necessary to achieve YouTube success, and then gives real-life examples of how this information can be directly implemented to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars in passive income.

Afterward, you’ll also be invited to enroll in the main Jumpcut Academy 2.0 program, for a limited amount of time, as the community is kept highly exclusive (often only opening enrollment two times per year). Let’s talk more about this next.

How Much Does Jumpcut Academy 2.0 Cost?

As mentioned earlier, Jumpcut’s YouTube Influencer 101 course is free, and gaining access only involves entering your name and email address.

On Reddit, founder Kong mentioned that the main course’s price is $997, and one user noted it’s payable over the course of six months, which provides lifetime access.

With this said, there’s currently a waitlist for the main course, so we sent an email to support@jumpcut.com for additional details, including the exact release date, cost, upgrade pricing, and refund details. We’ll discuss what we learned in a moment.

Returning to Reddit, though, Kong emphasized that Jumpcut comes with a 100 percent risk-free, 365-days guarantee, with “the only condition being you actually go through the course and do the assignments.”

What Do Know About the Professionals Behind Jumpcut?

Jumpcut has been in business since 2014 and is based out of Los Angeles, CA. Simplepickup duo Kong Pham (mentioned earlier) works as the company’s Chief Executive Officer, while Jesse Jhaj is the Chief Content Officer. The company went through the Y Combinator program during the summer of 2016, where they earned themselves eighth out of 50 companies.

Peter Lu, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, previously worked as an Associate Consultant for Bain & Company, as well as a Project Associate for Innovations for Poverty Action.

In his email to us, Peter explained that, “One of the reasons why we got into the program is because we want to change the way education is taught in the entire world. Lectures will be obsolete in 50 years. We're trying to create cinematic courses that will actually hook students in and teach them the concepts effectively.”

On Jumpcut’s Facebook page, nearly 190 users had given the company an average rating of 4.4 stars as of 1/3/17, with most compliments referencing high-quality customer support, along with effective information that can help you succeed.

On the other hand, frequent complaints—what relatively few there were—seemed to revolve around less information than expected (most often related to the 101 course), and unaffordability. In each instance, the company responded directly in an effort to maintain an open dialogue and acknowledge suggestions.

We also encountered five customer reviews on Google Maps, with a similar 4.2-star average rating and many of the same compliments (the single one-star review provided no details). Again, a representative responded to gain insightful feedback.

Outside of these sites, while a couple of Reddit users noted they liked what they learned, common complaints were that Jumpcut didn’t provide information that couldn’t be found elsewhere—often for free. One member who wrote an in-depth review specifically noted they found the concepts couldn’t be applied universally, the video quality was less-than-stellar, and the support community was relatively inactive.

However, Kong took the time to provide a detailed reply to this user in an effort to directly address their concerns.

Jumpcut also held a C- rating with the Better Business Bureau, based on one closed complaint, as of 1/3/18. No details were available, and the company hadn’t responded.

Our Conversation With Jumpcut COO Peter Lu

After sending our email above, we received a quick reply from COO Peter Lu, who had this to say:

Can you tell us when the program is set to release?

Peter told us that in order to ensure everyone has the opportunity to join the premium course, as well as to make sure “their claims about limited time (and exclusive) enrollment are always fair and accurate,” anyone interested must first make it through the entire Jumpcut 101 video training series. After this, they’ll be given one chance to join.

If this single opportunity isn’t seized, the only other chances to join will occur biannually, generally around January and June.

How much does the main course cost?

Peter confirmed that the program’s cost is $997 for lifetime access to the course material, which can either be paid upfront or across six monthly installments of $197 each, deducted from your Paypal account or credit card the same day each month.

Once you gain access, he emphasized there are no additional fees and no “premium” content that had to be unlocked. “Once you pay, you get everything, including any new features we build,” he said.

Can you tell us more about the refund policy and any conditions?

While all the nitty-gritty details can be found on Jumpcut’s Money Back page, Peter told us that if the premium course doesn’t deliver results, you pay nothing. All you have to do is show them that you went through the entire program, including completing assignments and worksheets.

While he said that you could technically accomplish this over the course of a few days, he recommends “that you take your time, so that you can internalize the concepts (hence, the 365-day time limit).” In general, students typically take a month to go through the material.

Peter stressed that they “do not make any exceptions to this policy due to personal circumstance. Fortunately, the 365 days are long enough for you to find a way to do the work needed for the refund.”

Are There Other Viral YouTube Academies Like Jumpcut?

Reading through Redditors’ comments, one free resource frequently recommended was YouTube’s Creator Academy, which provides access to content that covers many of the same topics mentioned in Jumpcut’s Influencer 101 course, including foundations for success, getting noticed, how to earn money, and building business and niche-specific channels, to name just a few.

Furthermore, all of this content can be filtered by experience level (e.g., beginner, intermediate, advanced). So, if you’re serious about creating viral YouTube videos and channels, it’s likely that you’ve read through this resource. But if not, it could be invaluable for your initial and continued success.

Outside of this, there are perhaps thousands of third-party sites and videos dedicated to helping YouTubers find channel success in all aspects, which are accessible simply by typing phrases like ‘how to create viral YouTube videos” into your favorite search engine.

Does this mean you’ll necessarily achieve more value by paying for Jumpcut’s premium content? Let’s answer this question as we wrap up in the next section.

Our Final Thoughts About Jumpcut

Just like finding success in any other endeavor, reaching viral status with your YouTube videos will take hard work, persistence, a willingness to fail, and quite a bit of trial and error.

And while insider information from people who’ve already found success might help get you up to speed faster and avoid common mistakes, there’s no avoiding this fundamental recipe for success. So, we think it’s positive that the Jumpcut website is clear to point this out.

Furthermore, COO Peter Lu sent us this forthright statement about who their program definitely isn’t for:

“If you're not in a financial state to enroll, and think you might not be able to make the payments, I would encourage you NOT to join right now.

You can do a ton with the free info from our online class. Think about it: you know how to come up with a channel idea, you understand how videos go viral, and you know how to utilize the remix strategy for your content. This is more than 99.99% of people know before they start their channel.

So put that information to good use. Then, later down the road, once you have the cash, you’ll be able to afford the program.

We’re going to be around for a long, long time, and we literally make the course better all the time. We'll be here when you’re ready to enroll. I don’t want you spending your last dollar on this program. Wait until it’s not a financial burden for you to join, and then sign up.”

On top of this, this company appeared to come with mostly positive online customer feedback on Facebook and Google Maps. And in some of the Reddit thread where consumer feedback wasn’t wholly positive, co-founder Kong often replied to provide everyone with additional explanations.

In the end; yes: Spending nearly $1,000 for Jumpcut’s main course could be considered steep. But if it helps move you one step closer to following your passion and potentially earning a living doing what you love, then it might be considered a drop in the bucket in the overall scheme of things.

Also, based on COO Peter Lu’s candid responses to our questions, it seems that Jumpcut is dedicated to keeping their prospective students informed and helping them succeed—and that you might not have much to lose by giving their course a shot.

But to help give you a better idea of the tone and approach of their videos, we’d recommend that you start by signing up for their free YouTube Influencer 101 course and going from there. In fact, based on what we learned about their limited enrollment model, you really don’t have another choice.

    Overall Experience:

    I am a creative director, producer, and small business owner working in entertainment in California. The shutdown caused by Coronavirus has been confusing and agitating. It has also opened me to a bunch of parts of myself I haven't been able to let out for years and am happy to explore. And now there is really nothing left holding me back from living my life and my dream (for better or worse), only framework and tools to move forward with. It's scary and dope at the same time!

    I have years of experience I can pull from; confidence from the years of building my small business; and the framework you are outlining. It is the kind of thing I've been craving. I mostly appreciate its open-source DNA, accessibility, accountability, and its respectful and encouraging nature. (Grammer was hard on that last sentence!)

    Thank you for paying it forward.

  • Humbled to be able to give this shout out to Kong and his Jumpcut team

    Overall Experience:

    I want to give a shout out to Kong and his crew from Team Jumpcut (especially Sev).

    The knowledge I have gained just through the free videos is remarkable. It’s the kind of information that keeps you on the edge of your seat ready for more...I would wake up looking forward to seeing what they had in store for me today!

    I am in my own kind of struggle with poverty and am not able to purchase the whole program as of yet. I will be, however, as soon as the financial issues are solved. The amount of support and knowledge is priceless...like Kong expressed that the price of his program undercuts the price for a college tuition...with the same and even more results...and not stuck in a 9-5 M-F job sentence. It’s about living the dream and a life worth value! I agree 110%.

    What knowledge I did gain has given me the boost to finally take the plunge, start my own YouTube channel, and start living my dream with passion and enthusiasm.

    A few days later I received an email from Kong and his crew from Team Jumpcut. I read it and responded to their questionnaire...not thinking much, just giving my true and honest feedback. I woke up the next day, started checking my emails and there was one from Kong and team Jumpcut.

    I was surprised that it was actually personalized and tailored to what I talked about. Detailed down to the suggestion and struggles I was facing. The compassion and kindness were really warming to my heart. It was not a generated cookie-cutter response. It made me feel deeply valued and cared for...that is extremely rare these days. So it was personal, it actually brought tears to my eyes. I then responded back and only a few hours later here is another reply. They not only care and value all their students, they really are there every step of the way.

    If you're lucky enough to stumble across their class, and want to start your own YouTube channel, this is the very best program (ROAD MAP) you’ll find on the market. I honestly believe that Kong has a sting desire for all his students to have the success that we all deserve...what an amazing life purpose...give knowledge, help people grow to their best potential, and seriously caring for the outcome. The karma you're building in the universe is absolutely amazing. Your selflessness to teach and allow others to grow is truly beautiful. I wish you all the beauty in the world. I feel privileged to be able to give this shout out...and mean ever word from all my heart.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

      I'm also glad Sev was helpful! He's one of our best agents, and he's really ready to lend an ear to everyone he comes across with. We're glad that you had a great customer experience with Jumpcut through Sev. :D

      That said, I hope you find success on YouTube, Gaye! We can't wait for you to join us soon. :)

    There are many great things to share regarding Jumpcut's customer service. First, they have a great system that sends an email immediately after a request for help is sent to them. That email says what to expect in terms of response time from a live person. It is helpful because they didn't leave me wondering if they received my request. Nice feature. A big shout out to AA and Mij - they are the best people - not just as customer service! They are sincere in their friendliness and willingness to help. They are not just willing to help but they succeeded in promptly taking care of my issue regarding the details of the payment plan for a course. The resolution was exactly what I needed and there was no messing around waiting for days for a solution. Prompt, professional, friendly, knowledgeable! What more could I want? Thanks to them I can just focus on my courses with no worries. The courses are amazing too!

    These guys talk a big game of "caring", but it's not always evident. Make sure you think through what you plan to do before paying for the course. They say they've sold it to 1.8 million customers, more than a billion dollars worth, but you won't find millions of successful students on YouTube.

      Company Response from Jumpcut

      Hey Timothy,

      Thank you for taking the time to write this comprehensive review.

      Before we dive into addressing your concerns one by one, we want to take a moment to say we’re truly sorry to hear that your experience with us thus far hasn’t been the best. Your concerns are understandable, and we hope to shed some light on them with this response.

      1) On finding a channel idea, and how it’s one of the big hurdles you’ll encounter when starting out

      We understand how challenging it is to come up with an idea for your channel because it's one of the biggest roadblocks when you’re first starting out, and one of the reasons aspiring YouTubers give up altogether. This is exactly why it's the first thing we tackle in our free training series, and something we talk about in-depth in our course. We give you the framework and guidelines to make it easier for you to jump right in, get started, and think of ideas for your channel. We do this because the first roadblock to success isn’t actually finding a channel idea — it’s getting started. And it is our hope that by providing you with a formula to come up with channel names, you can skip that first hurdle and move forward faster.

      2) The One-Year Guarantee and how it works

      The One-Year Guarantee, to put it simply, is a guarantee that you have 1 year (365 days) to try out the course, see if it works for you, and if you find out within that time that it’s not for you, we will provide a full refund.

      Now, to qualify for the guarantee, we require one thing and one thing only: show us you’ve done work and gave the course a shot before concluding that it wasn’t for you. While we take pride in our courses, we also want to make sure that our students truly find value in them. This is why we encourage you to complete the course before deciding it’s not for you. If you realize after going through the course that it's not giving you the results you wanted, then we're happy to return your investment provided that you send in your course assignments. These assignments are extremely doable as they’re simply knowledge checks that encourage the application of the concepts taught — we won’t ask for a million subscribers or hundreds of successful videos or anything of the like.

      We give a year to try out the course because we want to give ample time to apply the lessons. However, you can request for a refund under the guarantee any time within that year.

      3) The Simple Pickup YouTube channel

      We are an entirely independent company from Simple Pickup with a different approach and goal, although we would not have been founded if it wasn't for Simple Pickup's success. As Simple Pickup is a time of the past, we've chosen to take down the videos since we’re going in a different direction. As time passes, goals change, and this decision is a step closer to the direction we're heading towards right now.

    Be careful!

    After you sign up and pay, you can find out that MOST PEOPLE fail because they never get past the first hurdle - coming up with a good channel idea.

    They write: "Yep - most people never find a good channel idea, thus never create a successful channel...they see that their first idea failed, and rather than trying a different angle, they give up. They let the first and most critical obstacle stop them from achieving their goal."

    I can tell you from trying that it's often not a matter of giving up, it can be having standards for what you are willing or able to do, after you have a closer look with an understanding.

    Their 365-day refund requires that you do all the work in the course once you discover how pointless it would be. They don't tell you that the hurdle most people fail at is at the beginning and the guarantee is only at the very end.

    Watch what they did in the "simple pickup" channel on YouTube, if you can find it any more (there were a ton of complaints). These are not nice guys with other peoples' well-being in mind. And they will keep your money without a refund when you learn what they hid from you. (Papered over in bravado about how good the "365-day refund" really is.)

    I would definitely try to come up with a channel direction before signing up for this course. This blog post has a good intro that takes you through choosing a channel direction:


    Take care. These guys talk a big game of "caring" for you, but they evidently care only for your money.

    Overall Experience:

    I saw the ad for Jumpcut and was immediately interested and signed up. After going through the videos in the emails they sent me I decided to enroll in Viral Academy; however, when I went to make the payment I only saw the total as "997" and just like that. I misunderstood it for $9.97 and made the purchase and enrolled. It actually was $997.00 so when I looked in my back account and saw it I was really surprised. With my current financial situation I couldn’t afford that much. I emailed support explaining my situation and Zen from their support team got back to me the the next day. Since I already watched a few of their videos I asked in my email if they can take the cost of the videos I have watched, return the rest back to me, and remove my account from Viral Academy, and they agreed! They also said they will look into the "997" purchase display and fix it to cease any further misunderstanding. The situation was handled very smoothly and quickly! They also wished me good luck and to take the information from the few videos I’ve watched to help my YouTube channel which I most certainly will! I really appreciate this and that they would allow me a refund after I explained everything to them. This is a great program and service and I would highly recommend it to people who are interested to sign up if they can because they really care and want everyone enrolled to succeed with top service and customer support!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
