What is it?
Commission Crusher Reloaded is a product that's supposed to help you make money from Amazon. It's a 45 page PDF and templates you can use to create a website that drives your traffic to Amazon so you can earn commissions by selling their products. The main selling point is supposed to be the templates that come with the package. Khondoker says these are the same templates he's used to achieve several thousand dollars in Amazon commissions.
This product isn't necessary if you want to make money from Amazon. Sure you get a bunch of templates, but you can find thousands of those online for free anytime you want. The PDF that comes with the product is unreadable. It's painfully obvious that whoever wrote it doesn't understand english very well. And to make things worse the PDF is full of general information like how to apply for an Amazon account, how to get hosting for a website and how to setup WordPress. There are literally millions of places to find that same information online.
Before You Buy
This product was brought to my attention by Delilah Taylor. She sent it in an email to upsell me after I bought and reviewed her last product. You can read the review of her product here.
Of course there is an immediate upsell after you buy the product. It's a ‘pack' of ten more templates for an additional $9. This is just a way to get a little more cash from you. The original product comes with 7 templates already. You're never going to need 17 templates. Offering more templates is just a way for them to appear as if they are offering you more value for a product that's not all that great to start with.
What bugs me most about this upsell is the statement at the bottom of the page — where you either, buy or decline the offer. Here's what it says:
It implies you do not want to maximize your businesses potential if you don't purchase them. I hate when marketers do that, I seriously doubt it ever works for them.
What I Liked
If you're completely new to internet marketing there are a few things you can learn from this product. You can find this information easily by searching the web and it's not specific to Commission Crusher Reloaded, but it's good information nonetheless.
Designed for Amazon
This product is designed specifically to make commissions from Amazon. Amazon is the oldest and largest affiliate network online. So I like that Commission Crusher Reloaded advises you to stick with them. The PDF gives you all the basic knowledge you'd need to sign up for an account and start selling products as an Amazon affiliate.
Again, you can find this information in other places. In fact I have my own [Amazon course for newbies here].
What I Didn't Like
Commission Crusher Reloaded is nothing more than a PDF guide, full of information you can find on your own and a handful of website templates. The templates aren't special in any way. They want you to believe they are, but they're not. They send people to different sections of Amazon based on their interests. You can do this on your own using Amazon's affiliate links. It's really very simple.
The only way this product, or any internet marketing product work is to have a website that gets traffic. If you don't have traffic then you can't make money, even they know it's true. That's why they mention it in the PDF.
There it is, in black and white. The problem is, they never give you any strategies to help you get website traffic. Anyone can sell a product and tell you it will make millions. But until you have people visiting your website, you can't make any money.
Within the first couple pages of the PDF you're advised to steal content. You can't have a website, at least not one that anyone cares about, without some content. Instead of telling you how to write for internet audiences, or teaching you how to come up with ideas for blog posts, Khondoker tells you to take content from other websites.
Not only is this wrong, it's also a violation of every major search engine's terms of service agreement. If you do this, your parts (or all) of your website can be removed from search engines, sometimes in a matter of days. Not only that but you can have your website taken away from you, and you can also be sued for copyright infringement.
This is terrible advice. Don't ever do it.
Light Programming Skills Required
To use the templates you're given with this product you need to know a little about programming. They give you the code you need with the product, but they don't tell you what to do with it. In the PDF they tell you the templates will have to be added to your website differently, depending on if it's an HTML website or one built using WordPress. But if you don't know how to access this part of your website then you're out of luck. Even worse, if you put the code they give you in the wrong area you can crash your website completely. This leaves you with one of two options
- Learn light programming, which could take weeks or months.
- Hire a programmer, which can be very costly.
Only TWO DAYS after purchasing Commission Crusher I was sent emails from the other suggesting I buy two products. The emails were sent on the same day. This is a major issues I have with email marketers, especially ones from the Warrior Forum. I just only purchased your product a few days ago and now you want me to buy something else? I expect nothing less than email after email from this guy about the next amazing, once in a lifetime deal.
PDF guides, website templates and other ways to “supercharge your business” just don't work. They are rarely tested enough, and I’ve never seen one that I would trust to run my own business. You can learn the real time-tested business principles I use to run my business at the only internet marketing training community I recommend.
