What Is It?
A PDF guide + videos on how to sell Amazon products using Facebook ads, Facebook pages, and free traffic.
This is not a bad PDF or, nor is it a scam. However, there are huge chunks of information missing and absolutely no support.
Before You Buy
This product is all bark and no bite. For being called Azon Annihilation, it's pretty tame in its methods of making money: Make a website, Make a Facebook page, drive traffic to your affiliate links. This is all very standard stuff.
You should also know that he is recommending paid advertisements (FB ads), which requires more investment on your part.
Actually, there's no reason to buy this guide at all because you can find it in Google for free. I don't know why marketers do this. If they can't bother to lock the download, how much can this product really be worth?
What I Liked
The information contained in the guide was not half bad. He recommends writing quality content, and has some good strategies for choosing niches and products. Much of it was very basic information however, and personally, I would not build my business based on his advice.
What I Didn't Like
Lack of Detail
He spends a lot of time telling us what to do instead of showing us. The whole section on split testing was only 200 words long, and he spends even less effort to tell you how to set up a Webmaster Tools account. This can be found in Google, but this guide is far from comprehensive, and definitely not newbie friendly.
Hit And Miss Advice
Personally, I don't build backlinks, and I think that for newbies this is a great way to get your site in trouble with Google. In fact, I built a full time income on my site without making one single backlink, so I don't think you need to do this at all.
I also don't think his advice on Press releases, guest blogging, and link wheels is particularly up to date.
Also, something that can seriously damage your site, was his recommendation of using a plugin called Azon Insta Review Plugin that automatically generates content and takes images/stats from Amazon. In my experience, automatic Amazon plugins are a death sentence for any website.
But as mentioned above, some of the info is legit, and he spends a good amount of time telling you how to set up your first Facebook ad campaign.
So the question is, are you savvy enough to tell the difference?
Serial Product Creator
Actually, I don't know what's up with this. I found 4 different products from this guy, all related to Amazon. In fact, one of the screenshots below is from the videos in the PDF. Why does it have a different name? So is he just recycling the same product over and over again?
Lack of Support
The main reason that you should not buy this product is that it comes with zero support. None. Not even outsourced support.
But wait, wasn't there a link to a help desk in the PDF? Nope.
First of all, it's not even a hyperlink, so you have to copy/paste the link into your browser to get there. Then, once you are inside, there are only 4 questions being discussed (since July 2013).
Of those questions, neither Ryan, nor his support staff have showed up to answer questions. In fact, the users have banded together to help each other figure out this product!
It looks like there was not a lot of effort put into creating this product, and Ryan Martin doesn't seem too concerned with providing support for it. There's no reason you should give him your money.
Azon Annihilation was missing up to date training and personal support, but these are the two main ingredients for teaching any newbie how to start a profitable online business. How the heck would anyone learn without good training and mentors?
This is why I recommend the Wealthy Affiliate community. You can watch up to date videos + lessons on how to start your first online business. Not only that, you can even get personal support from experts who have been where you are now (including me). It's the ONLY place I recommend you get started.
