What Is It?
Techniques and tricks for making money through affiliate marketing and Google Adsense.
An expensive product that relies on old information, tricking the system and stealing from others, some techniques may be effective for making money in the short-term, but information is targeted at experienced users.
Before You Buy:
Day Job Killer is all about manipulating and making profit from other people, and the authors make every attempt to apply the same techniques to their own customers. Be prepared to read through a long and vague sales pitch that tells you very little about what you are actually buying. In fact, even though there is more than 12,000 words on the page, the author is far from clear about what is actually being sold.
The product itself is a pdf guide and is written in a pretty simple manner. There aren’t many pictures, so be prepared for a lot of reading. The majority of the guide is targeted at using Google Adsense and other pay-per-click (PPC) approaches, and the authors do not provide a large amount of basic information about online marketing. This means that the advice provided is completely useless and very confusing to people who are new to the field.
What I Liked:
There was a lot of information in the guide, and some of the techniques may be effective for people who are already savvy with internet marketing and PPC techniques.
What I Didn’t Like:
The core aspect of the Day Job Killer is a ‘secret’ technique for affiliate marketing that allows the users to potentially earn large amounts of money. The marketing for the product quickly reveals that the techniques focus on Google Adwords, Clickbank and affiliate marketing tricks.
So basically, the authors are offering their subscribers little more than affiliate marketing and PPC techniques, which are fairly common already.
It’s pretty easy to see from the text of the sales pitch that the authors are trying to manipulate readers (and potential customers) right from the start with self-righteous claims that are vague at best. Take the one below as an example,
This sounds nice, and is probably true, but it doesn’t actually prove the authors’ point whatsoever. The problem with guides that people pay for, including the Day Job Killer, is that they don’t actually offer a lot. If you are going to succeed at affiliate marketing (which is all Day Job Killer really is), then it isn’t a brilliant guide that is going to help you, it is time and dedication.
Many people who buy online guides and other ‘make money fast’ products don’t succeed simply because they imagine the product as a quick and easy way to get money, when this is never actually the case.
Another problem I have with the system is the reliance on ‘tricking’ Google and ‘stealing’ from other internet users, not to mention how old these tricks actually are.
I have learned the hard way that taking advantage of a loophole in any system is never a good idea. By definition, loopholes are unintentional, and sooner or later the company (in this case Google) is going to figure out what is going on and change it. In fact, Google is well known for completely changing the way that its system works, and ruining the profit margins of affiliate marketers in the process.
Also, where money is being made in 2007 is hardly any indication of where money can be made now. A lot has changed since 2007 and odds are, the techniques promoted in Day Job Killer are nowhere near as strong as they were then.
The guide itself does offer a decent amount of information about specific ‘secret’ techniques to beat the competition online. The first thing I noticed was that a good portion of the techniques that were offered are common knowledge, or are easily found online. In fact, I would guess that around half of the information offered could be found without too much effort, and the rest is still findable, it would just take more digging.
A final issue that I have with this product is its strong focus on PPC marketing. PPC marketing can be tricky to use, and there is a fair amount of risk involved, especially if you don’t know much about PPC to start off with. One of the problems with PPC, particularly as a strategy on its own, is that many affiliate companies don’t allow users to bit on their brand names. This means that if a user is promoting particular branded products on their site, there is no way for them to put up a paid ad for that product.
Additionally, using PPC techniques involves having some budget to start off with, meaning that it isn’t a good technique people without much money. This means that there is also a considerable risk of losing money rather than gaining it.
Who Is This Product For?
This product might be useful for people with money to spare who want to find new techniques for making profit through PPC, but honestly, most of the methods in this product are overpriced and can be found online with a bit of hunting,
