What Is It?
Super Affiliate Ninja Secrets in 80% fluff we’ve all seen before. Build an email list, promote affiliate offers from JVZoo, and get traffic from solo ads.
This product should be renamed “Super Affiliate Ninja Secret”. It’s basically one method to make money. Although the product is simple, newbie friendly, and does have a few cool tricks, it’s really not that special and I think most buyers will be disappointed.
For a complete newbie, it can show you the basics of how to build an email list without a website. For the experienced marketer, you might learn one trick about split testing with a service called Pageswirl.
Before You Buy Super Affiliate Ninja Secrets
In total, there are 52 pages of content. However, it’s a pretty large font, and there are lots of pictures. This is not an in-depth guide, but it does do a very good job of covering the steps. It’s written in a very newbie-friendly way.
- Page 1-10: How to get an affiliate link on JVZoo
- Page 10-24: Create an Aweber opt in form
- Page 25-32: Create a second for to split-test
- Page 33-35: How to use Pageswirl
- Page 36-43: Putting email swipes in your follow up sequence
- Page 44-45: Solo ad rolodex (not free!)
- Page 46-48: Buying and trading clicks
- Page 48-52: Encourage split testing
I had really high hopes for this guide because I thought that the sales page was quite honest, and interesting. However, considering that over 50% of the guide is just selecting a link from JVZoo and setting up Aweber, I was quite disappointed.
Actually, the last 40% of the guide was just a solo ad rolodex and some advice that split testing is important, so the only thing that was a “ninja secret” was have Aweber host your form and using Pageswirl to split-test two forms.
What I Liked
Love the Intro!
I agreed with a lot of the what Yaeger said on the sales video for Super Affiliate Ninja Secrets. For example:
1. It’s very hard to monetize some passions. But if you can make money from a niche, it’s very easy to become passionate about making money, and learn to enjoy helping people in that niche. I’ve done this before in several niches, so I know it’s true!
2. Not all of us were cut out to be thought-leaders and megastars in the entrepreneur world. I know I’m not. That’s OK. You can still make a tons of money leveraging the research and work of other smart people by being an affiliate. There’s nothing wrong with that!
They want your help. You get to leverage their systems. Consumers get a good product. Everyone wins.
3. Why reinvent the wheel? People have been doing this stuff for decades. Do what other people have done successfully FIRST before you go start trying to create some crazy new online business idea.
These are just things that I’ve found to be true and compatible with my personality. I love being an affiliate, and prefer it to being a product owner and needing to deal with launches, customer support, etc etc.
Some Cool Tricks
A lot of the stuff in the Super Affiliate Ninja Secrets PDF guide was very basic internet marketing stuff like finding a product on JVZoo (link) and setting up your Aweber account.
However, I did learn that you can have aweber host your form, and you can use a link they give you to send out in emails or past in social media. That’s cool because you can build a list without needing a website! (of course, you need traffic though)
I also learned how to use Pageswirl, which is free, to split test two forms and see which one converts better.
What I Didn’t Like
Just A Churn And Burn Business
I don’t mean that in a good way! When I watched the sales video for Super Affiliate Ninja Secrets I thought that Jason Mangrum was going to teach us how to build an affiliate marketing business.
Instead, we learned one little trick that may produce limited results for a handful of people. Each successful campaign you make is likely to burn out shortly after the hot product launches, which means you’ll have to start the process all over again.
That sure doesn’t sound like a long term business plan to me. I’m not saying it doesn’t work, but I am saying that I would personally rather spend my time building a website that can grow authority with time, allowing me to spend less time working.
I’m sure a few of you are thinking, “Wow, a churn and burn business sounds like quick profit! Sounds like what I want!” But in six months, after you’ve made a few hundred bucks you’ll start to think to yourself, “This is nice, but I wish I had spent my time building a brick house rather than bamboo shanties”
Yet Another MMO Solo Ad Product
Aside from the one or two tricks with Aweber, this is just another example of the same formula we always see.
- Step 1. Pick an offer from JVZoo or Warrior Plus
- Step 2. Blast your link to as many people as possible
That’s not a ninja secret. It’s the same old junk people have been doing for decades.
People are really jumping on the “solo ad” bandwagon lately like it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. But with solo ads, most of the time you have no idea where the traffic is coming from. The name of the game is QUANTITY of QUALITY.
Email spam is annoying. We all get junk mail, and hate headlines like “Watch how a 20 year old kid makes $12,367 dollars in a weekend while he tokes up in his parents basement”.
But crap like this is how you get attention in a world of millions of similar “make money online” offers being sent to the same people.
EVERYONE has access to the same list of “top products” to promote, so it’s likely you’ll be promoting the same products as 100k+ other desperate internet marketers trying to make their first $1 online (plus the pros!).
A decent product. For a newbie that read my review and thinks it could be a good fit for them, it’s worth the money.
For someone that wants to invest their time in building a long term, sustainable business, this is not the product you want.
For an experienced internet marketer looking to up their game or make more money, you’ll be very disappointed in what’s inside Super Affiliate Ninja Secrets.
Instead of jumping into the busy world of “make money online” and hot new products coming out of the JVZoo or Warrior plus, why not promote something you are interested in and passionate about?
Instead of trying to cut corners by not building a website, why not invest your time and energy into a real online asset that can GROW income over time and provide you with the freedom of passive income.
