Internet Marketing – A Cautionary Tale– Part 2!

I hope that you have successfully
downloaded your free superwebsite. I
have sent details in a separate note.

If you wish to make affiliate sales,
you need an AFFILIATE LINK from the
vendor (a URL) through which you send
your buyers. You need this to be paid.
Our story so far of an aggressive
internet service:
I have been offered a free traffic
service, then told that I WILL HATE
MYSELF if I do not upgrade to Platinum
service @ $15 per month.
(I will call it Review product).
I took my own advice and searched for
reviews of the company.
This one sums up the worth of the
product (there were others that
indicated payment / refund issues):
‘Review product is a software that
promises to drive 100,000’s of hungry
buyers to your website.
Now that’s a pretty bold claim to make.
I’d be happy
to get 100 “hungry buyers” to my
let alone 100,000’s.
But I’m afraid that’s never going to
happen. Not with Review product or any
other traffic generation software.
These types of software lack in one
Quality traffic.
You can get millions of people visiting
your website but if they’re not good
quality then you’re not going to make
any money.
All you’re going to get is a
high bounce rate. Is that some you’d be
happy to pay for?
They claim you can promote your
websites in front of thousands of
hungry buyers. Plus they say you can do
it with a free account.
You certainly won’t be getting messages
out to thousands of people with their
free account.
You won’t be able to
message anyone with the free account.
We purchased their platinum account
which is $14.99 per month and we can
message 2,185 people.
Without purchasing the platinum
membership, we would only be able to
message one person because we only have
1 person in our network.
Which is us, by
the way.
So How Does It Work?
This works very similar to a MLM, Multi
Level Marketing system. This is how
Review product works:
1.    You sign up… Obvious!
2.    You get other people to sign up with
your special link. They are then added
to your network.
3.    The people you sign up can then get
other people to sign up. They also join
your network.
4.    This keeps on going. Everyone who
signs up, up to 15 levels deep, will be
added to your network.
5.    You can message all these people in
the future.
Is this a problem? Well, yes.
Say you manage to get people you
actually want to message into your
Will the people they sign up,
who will also be added to your network,
be the people you also want to message?
Probably not.
Here’s an example. Let’s say you sign
up 100 people who are interested in
your car blog.
One of those 100 people
likes the idea of Review product and
wants to use it to promote their
florist blog.
They sign up 100 people
who want to learn more about flowers.
Now you have 200 people in your
network, but only 100 of them are
interested in your car blog.
That’s just one of the 100 people who
signed up for Review product underneath
What if all 100 people you signed
up managed to get 20 people to sign up
to Review product as well?
You have a network of 2,000 people,
but only 100 of them are interested
in your car blog.
Rather pointless to have 2,000 people
in your network. You’re going to end up
just spamming these people.
Review product does help you promote
themselves though. How nice of them.
This Is Why Email Services Block These
Software like this exists because email
service providers block spam. This is
how they get around this problem.
You’re basically paying for a low
quality email list. Aweber wrote an
excellent article about why you
shouldn’t buy email lists.
Traffic software like Review product is just a
more expensive version of buying an
email list.
The inbox on Review product:
If you want to send messages you need
to read 60% of your inbox first.
You need to spend at least 10 seconds
looking at each message for it to count
as a view
as well. This is how they get
people to view your message.
So even if you do get someone to view
your message the chances are it’s only
so they can send their messages to
people in their networks.
What You’re Spending Your Money on If
You Don’t Want The Free Option
You can sign up for free and anyone who
signs up under your special link you
can message for free. Including the
people they then sign up too.
The platinum membership which allows
you to message 2,185 extra people will
cost you $15 per month.
For the additional 150,000+ people, it
will cost you $197 per month.
That’s an insane amount of money to
spend on what is essentially a low
quality email list that gets spammed
Such low quality that the
only reason your messages are being
“read” is so they can turn around and
then message other people.
Completely useless.

that are actually interested in what

beneficial to you.
This is why the scam artists out there
