What is it?
Fiverr Funnel Kraze is a 66-page ebook that discusses using Fiverr.com to build an email list, and then ultimately market to that list. The idea is to create gigs on fiverr then collect the emails addresses of the buyers. Once you have the email addresses you promote affiliate products to the subscribers.
Going into my purchase of Fiverr Funnel Kraze I had high hopes. I thought it would be something that many of you could take action on immediately to make some quick cash from Fiverr. I was wrong. It's just another ebook that is too long-winded and full of basic advice. There are some important points missing from the book, which makes it unusable. Save your money.
Before You Buy
There is one upsell you're taken to after you purchase this product. It can be bought for an additional $9.
This is supposed to help you figure out which Fiverr gigs will work best. In the original ebook, Fiverr Funnel Kraze, Vincent uses one gig as an example. But with this upsell he supposedly shares up to ten more of them. It should have been included in the original course, plain and simple. This is just a sleazy marketing tactic to get you to buy more.
If the combined course is worth $18, sell it for $18 as a complete course instead of dividing it into two to try to deceive people into thinking your product is cheap.
What I Liked
I was surprised to find a few things that I liked. Overall I think Vincent is a good guy, and his heart is in the right place.
Focus on Customer Support
Throughout the ebook Vincent talks about the way you should treat your customers. His customer-first attitude comes through, very strongly in every step of the process.
For each step, Vincent seems to be able to put in a word or two about the customer about how they feel, what they think and what they expect from you. I found it comforting to see him taking such a firm stance on this point. Too often this is not the case with information products.
Focus on Building an Email List
It's been said probably a million times: “The money is in the list.” I don't focus on list building, but I know many successful marketers do. Website owners who collect email addresses are typically much more successful than those who don't.
In Fiverr Funnel Kraze this is a recurring theme. Of course, it's kind of the whole premise behind the product, but still. Vincent not only preaches the importance of building an email list, he discusses some of the best practices for doing so.
He also shares some of his personal resources, tips and example emails that he uses for his email marketing.
Learn to Find Good Products on Warrior Forum
I strongly dislike the Warrior Forum but do admit that it is a well-known marketing community with a lot of members. One thing about it, is the sheer number of products being created and marketed there on a daily basis.
For many, the forum is associated with spam and low quality content. But that tends to happen with anything once it grows and begins to produce volumes of sales and users. YouTube — specifically its comment's — are a perfect example of this.
As with anything if you dig in and know where to look, you can find the good ones. The same can be said for the Warrior Forum.
Until I read this ebook, I didn't really know how to search the Warrior Forum and find the good offers. That might have been one of the best things about Fiverr Funnel Kraze. Vincent goes into quite a bit of detail to show you where to look to find the best products to promote there.
Not only does he show you where to look, but he also shows what to look for, and what actually makes a good product worth promoting.
What I Didn't Like
Sadly, there are some important things that are missing from this product. Here's a few of them…
Throughout this ebook there were several typos. Normally I don't like to be the Grammar Police but in this instance it was a bit distracting.
The mistakes weren't so bad that I couldn't figure out what he was trying to say. But they did happen a lot.
It makes me think Vincent probably didn't spend much time putting this thing together. He certainly didn't send it to an editor or even spellcheck his own work. Yeah Yeah, there are typos on my blog too. But when you are buying something, the game changes.
It Never Says How You Get the Email Addresses
Fiverr Funnel Kraze needs two things to work as Vincent describes it:
- Email addresses (that's the “Funnel” part)
Without email addresses there is no funnel. It's pointless without them. So you're supposed to get the emails from the customers who hire you on Fiverr. But there's a problem with that.
Vincent never shows you how to get the email addresses. And since it's against Fiverr's Terms of Service agreement (TOS), it's almost impossible, unless you're very stealthy. Obviously this is a major flaw in the ebook.
Just take a look at what happens when you ask for an email address.
The same thing happens when you enter yours. They also scan all documents sent through their system.
Sure there are ways to get the emails from your Fiverr customers. We aren't going to discuss them here, because it's an entirely different topic. The point is, Vincent never shares any methods for getting them and it's against Fiverr TOS.
“Send Emails Once or Twice a Day”
At one point, Vincent advises you to send emails to your subscribers once or twice a day!
That is waaay too often. If you send emails to your list that often you are definitely going to have some complaints. There are some cases when you can email people that much, but only if they know that when they sign up.
This tactic also contradicts one of his repeating points in the book, which is to focus on customers first. Nobody wants an affiliate offer in their inbox everyday. And certainly not two!
Making a full time income from reading one PDF just isn’t going to happen, especially if there isn’t a good enough support network. Learning how to make money online will be a long and winding journey, so what happens if you get lost somewhere down the road? You can get my personal assistance and mentorship at no cost as a member of this online business training center, as well as the support of thousands of other members who want to see you succeed.
I have a feeling most people that follow the advice from Fiverr Funnel Kraze are going to see just a few buys in their first few emails, then a massive amount of unsubscribes after the next couple days. It's a trick to earn a few bucks, not a legitimate way to build a business.
