What Is It
Covert Cash Conspiracy is a 64 page ebook. It covers many of the basic principles of marketing online for beginners.
This product is old. That’s the biggest problem it has. The internet has evolved and the same information can be found online for free these days.
Before You Buy
If you decide to purchase this product you should know you can probably get it a little cheaper. If you click the exit button from the sales page you’ll see a pop up window. That window is, of course to convince you to stay on the page.
This is a last ditch effort to get you to buy. So instead of letting you leave they offer you the product $9 instead of $17. It’s not a great deal. And I don’t recommend you buy the product. But if you do, you can say I saved you a few bucks.
What I Liked
It was refreshing to see a product offer some type of valuable information. Although the information is outdated and basic, at least it contained some substance. If you’re a beginner, and you’ve never read anything about internet marketing this book might be helpful to you. (Well, it would’ve been helpful a few years ago.)
Old, but thorough
Despite being outdated, the information in this book is very thorough. If you could read this and decipher what information is relevant and what’s not, you’d get some value out of it. (Then again, you wouldn’t need this book if you could do that.)
The ebook covers everything from setting up a website with WordPress, to outsourcing certain projects like design, content creation and more.
That’s plenty of information to get most people moving in the right direction.
What I Didn’t Like
If it was 2010 and I didn’t know anything about marketing this would be a great starter guide. Unfortunately none of those things are true.
Too Much to Read
Matt should have created this course using video, or even audio. An ebook of this long can be incredibly difficult to read. It would be understandable to see some of this course in ebook format. But this is too much to digest, especially today with how easy it is to create other media forms.
The fact that this product is an ebook shows how truly dated it is.
This ebook is so outdated it’s almost depressing to look at. Throughout the book you find references to sites and resources that no longer exist, and haven’t for several years.
But the biggest problem with old information is that it can get you into trouble now. For example, in one chapter you’re advised to get links to your website by any means necessary. While that strategy worked a few years ago, it can get you banned from search engines like Google Yahoo and Bing now.
Aside from an email address on the bottom of the sales page, I was unable to find any way to contact support. There was no mention of that email address or any other support inside the ebook.
I did make an attempt to contact them through the address on the sales page. So far I haven’t heard anything from them.
Support is the most important part of building an online business. A product with bad support is practically useless. A product with no support is completely useless.
Building your first business online requires at least two things….
