What Is It?
Jumbo Traffic Bonanza is an extremely short PDF about two websites that you can use to get paid traffic.
The only thing “jumbo” about this guide is the font size. I kid you not, he uses size 29 font and the guide is only 23 pages long, including disclaimer, introduction, and a picture of him on the last page.
Before You Buy
For being such a piece of trash, Jumbo Traffic Bonanza has a lot of hands in promoting it. First off, it looks like Phil Steptoe didn’t even write it, and it was created mostly by Jan Roos. Phil has created several products in the past, so I’m sure that he was either paid to put his name on the product, or that he outsourced the guide to Roos. I’m not sure what Venkata Rama had to do with the whole thing.
Then, on the sales page, we see Steptoe featured on the “James and Delilah” show.
James Knight has been featured on my website before with Kirstie Chiles, another creator of absolutely unbelievable junk. Seriously. Shockingly bad products you have to see to believe like Tube Emergency Cash and Emergency Cash Affiliate Storm.
Knight has created at least one product in the past that I know of, Easy Tube Profits, but his YouTube interviews are mostly how I know him. After watching a few in a row, it’s clear to see that they are very uninformed and nothing but a shill for anyone who wants to step up to the plate.
The fact that they would tarnish their already poor reputation (in my opinion) by promoting something of such a low caliber is unbelievable. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t even download and read this PDF.
Here is a screenshot of what size 29 font looks like with double breaks.
Sad, no? I read this thing in less than 5 minutes.
What I Liked
Roos listed two websites to sign up for as PPC alternatives to the typical Bing/Google/Facebook ads that most people start with.
What I Didn’t Like
Seriously, this guy must be having a laugh, because I can’t believe he actually produced this guide a called it Jumbo Traffic Bonanza.
The only thing positive he did was list two possible websites to use to drive PPC traffic to your website. He didn’t show us how to set up ads, how to navigate the dashboard, how to choose proper images and ad copy, or how to create a landing page that converts.
Everything was very generalized. I’ll be he wrote this guide in one afternoon. In fact, I am probably spending more time researching and reviewing this product than he did writing it.
In both of the examples given in the guide, he spent over $20,000 in ads. WOW! In one example he spent more than $30k! The vast majority of people starting out in internet marketing don’t have that kind of money.
Even the folks that do are going to be very hesitant to spend that kind of dough, especially without guidance.
In both examples he shows how he’s getting .03 cents per click, but then slips in there that you might be starting out at .11 cents per click. Gee, that’s going to affect my conversion rate and profitability!
Speaking of expensive, once you are inside the members area, they try to trick you by telling you that “Step 1 and 2” of the guide are actually to buy into more products. This is even AFTER they try to sell you 2 more products in the upsell funnel. Crazy, I know. BTW, you can download your PDF in step 3, which clearly takes a back seat to their other marketing efforts.
Targeted Towards The Wrong Audience
Jumbo Traffic Bonanza was clearly trying to capitalize on the crowd that wants unlimited targeted traffic for no work, right now, so that can make some fast money.
Unfortunately, he also slips into the guide that you need a website (instructions not included), you need content (instructions not included), you cannot drive traffic to sales pages (funnel instructions not included), and you can’t drive traffic to a squeeze page.
UPDATE: I have received 4 emails today promoting this product! WOW. After actually buying it, it's clear that the people promoting it didn't buy it. Marketers I've received emails from include Raymond Ortega, Danny Gold, Paul Smith, and one other guy I already deleted the email for. Actually, I unsubscribed from Raymond's list several times but he keeps sending me email. Ugh. Gurus…
Honestly, I could rip on this guide a lot more, but it’s already taken enough time out of my day. This is NOT an April Fools joke. However, the creators and promoters of Jumbo Traffic Bonanza do look like a bunch of fools.
If you are tired of buying WSO after WSO and downloading junky PDF with “secrets to unlimited profits”, you’re not alone. Throw all that stuff to the curb and start learn how real marketers outside the MMO community create content, drive traffic to their websites, and grow their business over time. You can learn a lot more by starting out with my blog posts on free traffic, or starting out with my email course on affiliate marketing.
What do you think? Is it worth $5 to pay for some dude to tell you about two paid advertising networks?
