Product name: One Minute Commissions
Product owner: Mike Auton
What is it
One Minute Commissions is basically a piece of software that creates a short video for you to upload to YouTube.
One Minute Commissions is shockingly worthless. I'm positive that no one has ever made a penny using it. It's deceptive, low quality junk that gives beginners the wrong idea about online marketing and business building.
Before you buy
After purchasing this product you are slammed with multiple upsells. For each of them you have to watch a certain portion of a video before the “No Thanks” button appears. Then, once you're inside the member's area they offer additional coaching. The coaching is priced on an individual basis, which really means they'll get as much from each person as possible.
What I liked
It was difficult to find something about this product that I actually liked. But I will give credit where it's due.
Once you purchase the product you get access to the member's area. There, you will see an introductory video and step-by-step instructional videos on each page. The navigation is clean, simple and self-explanatory. Each page is clearly marked for exactly what's on that page.
I also liked that they put the tutorials on one page, instead of creating multiple pages for each video. That way, you can learn everything you need to know from one spot.
What I didn't like
First of all, let me say One Minute Commissions is a product promoted through clicksure. Clicksure, if you're not familiar, is an affiliate program that promotes mostly scammy, worthless products. I've reviewed multiple products from clicksure affiliates and even clicksure itself.
I've never found a single product that was worth the price, One Minute Commissions is no exception.
One Minute Commissions promises you will make money promoting products with YouTube videos.
Heres how it works:
- Find a product to promote
- Get your affiliate link
- Find a picture of the product
- Enter all the information into “Accelero” (the software)
Once you've done all this, the software creates a video, title and description for you to upload to YouTube. The concept is that people will watch the video and instantly want to buy the product. Obviously this is a flawed concept that seldom (if ever) works. I can't say I've ever heard of anyone buying a product after staring at an image for 13 seconds. I don't care how great the image is, it takes more than that to convince someone to buy a product, especially online.
With One Minute Commissions the only thing you're really getting is Accelero, the software that creates the video. You have no control over quality or the content, except for choosing the image. The video is about 13 seconds long and contains nothing but an image with some background music.
You can create a much better video using any of the free screen recording software available online. And if you have a webcam, you can create a video of yourself talking about the product. It might not be the greatest video but it would be better than the one Accelero creates.
The videos that were created to walk you through each step of the “system” are broken, or missing. Instead of watching, you have to listen to the instructor and try to guess what he's talking about. This is very difficult because the instructor is relying heavily on your ability to see what he's doing.
At the very least they could fix this issue so buyers can take advantage of the small amount of value they did try to create.
Knowing that this product is pure junk, watching the “testimonials” made me almost sick. So, I decided to do a little research into some of these so-called happy customers. Here's what I found.
Meet Darville. He provides video and animation services at Fiverr.com. Specifically Darville creates testimonials and reviews.
Now meet “Michael”. He's a happy customer who recently purchased One Minute Commissions.
I'd say that Darville and Michael share an odd resemblance, wouldn't you?
Another odd yet, not surprising fact is the highest earners for One Minute Commissions are other product creators. Many of these creators sell their own “million dollar systems”.
Andrew X, is one of the “leaders” but Andrew claims to have his own Turnkey system for making money.
Another leader, Craig Kaye, created Commission Killer. which is supposed to completely automate online money making.
Now why would these successful marketers need to use a product like One Minute Commissions?
One Minute Commissions is a clever name to make you believe their product will make you instant profits. That's not true and we all know it. Trying to take shortcuts like this will cost you more in the long run and put you further away from your goal.
