What is it?
CPA Conversion Crusher is a private YouTube video, about thirty minutes long that teaches you the method Abul Hussain uses to profit from CPA offers.
This is one of those products that requires some upfront investment and experience. There’s some good information inside but if you’re a beginner I don’t think it will help you much. To put it simply, CPA Conversion Crusher is just okay.
Before You Buy
CPA Conversion Crusher teaches some tactics which require “offers”. You have to find these offers from CPA networks like Maxbounty or Peerfly. Don’t worry though, these networks are free to join as long as you meet the criteria.
CPA networks are similar to affiliate programs, and of course, some are better than others. Personally, I’ve always found Peerfly to be the best one.
If you’re going to join a CPA network you should learn a little more about them. You can read my review of Peerfly’s network here.
Peerfly isn’t perfect but they are the #1 CPA network. If you read my review you’ll learn a bit more about CPA, and if it’s a viable option for you.
What I Liked
Once I finally gained access to this product I will admit that I was a little disappointed.
The download page was sparse, and in fact, wasn’t a download page at all. Instead it was just a link to a private YouTube video.
All that said, I did find some value in this product that I was quite surprised by.
The Video Content
It is a little disappointing to find out that you’ve paid for a YouTube video, but in all fairness it is a private video, which means you can’t access it unless you have it unique link. So it’s not like just anybody can watch it.
Once I got over my initial feelings I started to see that there was some actual value.
For starters, I normally give products with videos higher ratings because they’re easier to learn from. Just because this one is hosted on YouTube doesn’t make it inherently bad. In fact, the opposite is true. I found that the video quality was pretty good and although it only covers one tactic, it covers it really well.
The tactic discussed in the video is actually quite good itself. Abul goes into a fair amount of detail about the tools and resources he uses to build a list and make money from CPA offers.
Okay, so once the video gets rolling Abul is explaining this one tactic he uses — the one he promises you will have success with. Here’s the thing, I believe him, and I like his tactic. It’s simple, unique and he isn’t simply rehashing the same old general information like a lot of other product creators like to do.
Abul’s tactic basically works by setting up a landing page with a survey on it.
The survey is designed to get the visitor to engage with the landing page. That way they are much more likely to convert, especially since his tactic uses offers that are free for them. (There are plenty of CPA offers that pay you very well, yet are free to the visitor.)
Once they complete the survey, they are taken to the CPA offer and hopefully they convert (buy) so you can collect your commission.
This idea of surveying your visitors to get them more “emotionally engaged” isn’t something new — Abul didn’t come up with it. But instead of just telling you about it, or its possibilities, Abul actually shows you how to do it. In addition to that, I think he priced this information very fairly.
Oh, by the way, he starts his video by saying, “I’m going to assume that you have an offer to promote and that you already know how to drive traffic to a website.” That's a pretty big assumption!
Okay, fair enough. I mean those are basic elements but at least he is upfront about the fact that you will need those two things. Many product creators like to pretend you don’t.
What I Didn't Like
Although I was surprised by the quality and value provided, there were some things that I didn’t like. Unfortunately some of these things are pretty important…
Right off the bat the upsells were a problem. I had to go through six more sales-pitches after I had already paid for CPA Conversion Crusher. Six! For a five dollar product that's insane.
Upsells (additional offers after the original purchase) are common online but that’s just too many.
I will say that that the upsells are at least relevant to the core product, in that they are all CPA related products. But that doesn’t make them any less annoying.
To make things worse though, is that the prices get higher and higher as you go. So if you turn down the first upsell, the second is more expensive, and on and on. They start at $17 and finally end with a product that costs almost $200!
Why on earth would anyone assume that after buying a $5 product and being annoyed to death after five more sales-pitches that I would just simply give in and pay $200. It doesn’t make any sense.
Keep in mind that those are just the upsells before you reach the product — there are even more throughout the video.
Then finally at the end of the video there is one final sales pitch and you’re asked to purchase a piece of software for about $120. It seems like this product serves as more of a lead-in to other products than anything else.
Assuming you don’t buy any of the previously mentioned upsells, there are still some additional costs associated with Abul’s method.
The first is an autoresponder (or email marketing service) Abul recommends using Aweber for this — and he’s right, Aweber is a good service. In fact I use them. But that comes at a cost of at least $20 per month, and the rate increases with the number of email addresses you acquire.
Other costs include a subscription to a landing page service like Leadpages, which will cost you about $37 per month, unless you pay annually — then it’s $25 per month — an upfront cost of $300!
Keep in mind that those are the prices for the most basic packages available, the minimums. Realistically though, you’re likely going to need the more expensive upgraded packages.
You Need Some Experience
Remember the assumption Abul made in the beginning of his video — the one I mentioned earlier?
“I’m going to assume that you have an offer to promote and that you already know how to drive traffic to a website.”
Before you can use the advice Abul gives you you will need those things. That basically rules out any and all newbies, which is something I don’t like. I’ll give him credit for creating value with his product, but it’s not something you can purchase, learn from and put into action to start an online business. You’re going to need a good deal of experience before you can do that.
It's important that you understand that CPA Conversion Crusher covers just one aspect of online business. However, it's only one tactic — not a full business plan! It is one small piece of a much bigger picture. Without an existing business, website, or sales funnel, you can't actually profit from learning what they are trying to teach.
