The owner, Devon Brown (deVON, if you please) would do well as a carnival barker. He plays “excitement” very well. He talks fast and his presentation to me appears to be full of hype.
So, what is this system and how does it work?
We are told that this system is for you if you:
- Want to make money online
- Would like daily commissions
- Are not tech savvy
- Company creates sales funnels and does all the writing for you
The System Is Quite Simple
Devon Brown says the system is for people who have no clue how to make money online and are struggling to succeed. He claims the system is “as easy as everyone else has promised you it would be.”
According to Brown, he generated over $115,000 in commissions for one program in less than six months.
He goes on to say that if you want to get in on this program, you need to join JV Zoo, Warrior Plus, or Clickbank to access products. He suggests you start with just one affiliate network. Clickbank gives instant approval for products and has more products in more niches available than other sources.
Brown’s experience has shown him that you should never buy traffic and send a product offer directly. Instead, send traffic to an opt-in page, where you will collect their email address.
He makes the point that research shows that a customer has to see an offer at least seven times before he will be interested in buying. Therefore, he’s set up an autoresponder system which will allow you to send messages offering different products in the same niche.
He says that if you get someone excited about the product’s benefits, they will then buy. Brown uses a bridge page to “butter them up,” getting them excited about what is on the next page. To move the client forward, you can send out professionally-written follow-up messages.
Here is the 12-minute method:
- Find a product you want to promote
- Enter links
- Add “done for you” traffic based on your budget
The three niches he uses are weight loss, personal development, and making money online.
The system has pre-selected products. Traffic is automated. You order how much traffic you need, depending on how much you want to pay. (You never learn what the charges are for his “done for you” traffic. Also, you have to pay a monthly fee for the autoresponder, but he doesn’t say how much
You receive fully-done funnels, depending on your niche. You will have access to the Funnel Wizard, which allows you to create on-demand custom affiliate funnels.
You can join a private Facebook group where you can access other members and get your questions asked.
It’s An Easy Start-Up
I watched a promo video on the website and a long “webinar” video. In these videos, I’m promised that the system will automatically promote your affiliate links for months on autopilot. You are given all the hard pieces of the setup so you won’t have to do them yourself.
You get predesigned pages complete with opt-in forms. You just drive traffic to the lead capture page.
In order to get started, you have to do three things
- Personalize the system (Add your links; set up email responder and other aspects of the sales funnel.
- Add done-for-you traffic
- Keep your affiliate commissions
It’s $9.95 for the first 14 days. Then you pay $47 to $97 per month, depending on the number of niches you take, or $397 to $797 for lifetime membership.
What Do I Think Of This System?
- It is a legitimate affiliate marketing model
- Tools are offered to make the task easier; can be set up quickly
- Facebook group for support
- Low cost for first 14 days
- 60-day money-back guarantee
- Misleading: Hard to determine the exact price
- There is no ongoing training
- Upsells are costly
- There are extra costs, such as traffic
- There is no guarantee that paid traffic will be people interested in your niche
- No tech support
I give this app a rating of 2.5 out of 5
I am sorry, but when a presenter sounds like a carnival barker, I am immediately mistrustful. Why all the hype if this is a legitimate offer? Also, I do not like the idea that you start out not knowing what you are doing, and you never learn what you are doing. You just follow an automated system and never learn anything.
What happens if something stops working because of a technical problem? Who will fix it? How long will you wait before it is fixed?
It is hard to tell the exact cost of this system. You have a monthly fee. You have upsells. You have paid traffic. You have the autoresponder. If you decide to add any extra advertising to try to improve your traffic, that will cost you. I think the hidden costs in this program are what really bother me.
Yes, you can save time, but will you make money in doing so? For one thing, I would not want to sell products that were unfamiliar to me. If I am going to sell something, I want to know as much as I can about what I am selling.
It might work, but then again, it might not. I toyed with the idea of paying the $9.95 to see what I could do in two weeks. All in all, I think there are too many unanswered questions for me to wish to join.
I am the type of person that likes to have some sort of control over the way I make my living. I want to know how my choice of earning works. I love the idea of building my own website from scratch, learning the whole process from experts, selecting my own niche and products. Though some people don’t like to write, I love that part, too, so perhaps I’m lucky there.
