Product Name: Dan’s Success Plan
Product Owner: ‘Dan’
What is it?
A low quality product that offers basic training that can be easily found elsewhere.
Dan’s Success Plan is filled with marketing hype and unrealistic claims. There really is nothing unique about this product and it is a waste of time, space and money.
Before You Buy
Personally, I think product is one to avoid entirely. If you are going to buy it, make sure you read all of the fine print carefully.
What I Liked
I’ll have to pass on this one. There was actually much more that annoyed me about this product than I have time to write, and I certainly can’t find anything I like about it.
What I Didn’t Like
I’ve been reviewing products a while now. Over time, I’ve started to see that same patterns in very different products. Right off the bat, if a product is insanely hyped or the description is very vague, then the author is trying to be misleading.
Now personally, I start to get offended when someone starts to manipulate or mislead me, and I also want to know why. In this case everything about the sales pitch sounds unrealistic. I mean a ‘secret website’ that makes $500 – $5,000 a month? It sounds a bit too good to be true.
I mean look at this. It sounds wonderful and it even sounds right:
Honestly though, this isn’t true. You do have to be working with a good system (and not a scam) to be successful at making money online, but that’s only part of the story. Even if you have a good system, you still have to learn how to use it well and how to be dedicated to making money online overall.
The thing is there are so many products that offer quick and easy ways to make money, but they are simply scams. Making money is not something that happens overnight. If it was it would be a whole number of millionaires out there, many more than there actually are.
Successfully making money really is something it takes time and it takes effort. If you see anything that claims otherwise it is simply a scam.
In fact, Dan’s Success Plan uses a lot of the classic scam approaches in trying to sell to you. For example his ‘proof’ doesn’t actually mean anything – but he presents it like it is iron clad evidence that the system works.
Firstly, you can fake these types of earnings. Secondly, Dan’s personal earnings aren’t an indication of whether his system is a success or not. I highly doubt that he made money using the exact same system that he is trying to promote. That really doesn’t happen.
Here’s another trick:
This is a psychological approach. People have a fear of being left out so saying that there are limited positions tends to increase the sales. Some products actually do have limited positions, but most simply like saying it. Regardless of which is happening here, it is still a manipulative approach.
There were a lot of things about the signup page that bothered me (including the stock images), but the last one I really want to touch on is the signup form. The signup form consistently rejected any email address I put into it, with no apparent reason.
Because of that, I’m basing the product section of this review off the information I could gather – as the issue made it impossible to sign up. This may mean that the product has been taken down or it may just be the site misbehaving.
One of the most important things about any way of making money online is being up-to-date. The online environment changes so quickly, and internet marketers get behind all of the time. If you are buying into anything that hasn’t updated recently, you are simply wasting your time.
In the case of Dan’s Success Plan – this is certainly true.
The main video for the site was made in 2012, which means that his system is pretty old at this point (two years is around twenty years in internet marketing terms). He even makes a big deal of the date in his video.
In fact, he even comments at how recent the video is and how it is updated often. More than two years between updates certainly isn’t what I’d consider often.
This might sound like nitpicking, but it really isn’t. The age of an internet marketing system or product really is everything for whether the approach works or doesn’t. If the site owner (or owners) can’t even update their video regularly, what does that say about the actual product?
If you go to the store and look at product, you expect to be able to find out all of the specs about the product before you buy it. That’s a pretty normal expectation. Yet, on sites like Dan’s Success Plan, that concept goes out the window entirely.
Instead, we are treated to promises of wealth with little indication of where that is supposed to come from. In any industry, that is a sure sign that something isn’t right.
The Product Itself
All of these factors are indications of issues with the site and its owner, but what about the product itself? After all, a bad site might be an indicator of a bad product, but it’s not a guarantee.
Overall, the product is basically a bunch of training videos. The signup for the website costs $10 and there is an additional upsell for $40. The training being offered isn’t even from Dan (whoever he actually is). Instead, it is nothing more than a redirect to the site.
The training is essentially teaching a form of affiliate marketing, one that doesn’t rely on content. It’s a very unrealistic approach and the training doesn’t offer anything you can’t get elsewhere online.
Personally, I do think that training for making money online is a good thing, but that training needs to come from a decent and specialized site – not one that tries to trick you into spending.
Dan’s Success Plan is a low quality product that simply attempts to manipulate. It isn’t worth your time or effort and it is one to steer away from entirely.
The best approach to making money online isn’t the fastest and most wonderful system. Instead, you need to focus on reliable and up-to-date approaches. These will take time, but they are the answer for long-term success.
In particular, I recommend using the online training site that I learned how to make money online with. This is a highly effective site and one that works well regardless of your level of experience.
