With a name like Traffic Laze, the goal of this product should be immediately obvious. It is meant to be a fast and easy way to get traffic, regardless of your niche. You could then turn that traffic into income.
The appeal is easy to see. Getting good traffic is one of the most difficult things about making money online. It’s not impossible, but most effective techniques involve a significant amount of time and planning. There are paid traffic approaches too, but the costs can add up fast and you still need to plan.
Traffic Laze sounds like a scam cashing in on the desire for traffic. Is that really the case? In this review, I’m taking a look at what you get for your money and whether the traffic is worth the effort.
What Traffic Laze Offers
Traffic Laze meets its claims in one important way – you can get traffic through it. That traffic is even automated, to some degree. Purchasing the product gives you access to software that can be used on Windows or Mac computers. The software is designed to pull traffic from Instagram.
The basic idea is that you create an Instagram account and choose a person or a page that you want to follow. Whoever you’re following needs to be related to your niche, as you’re targeting their followers. Your Instagram account needs to be named something that’s related to your niche.
The concept is Instagram users will see your account, be interested because the name is related and visit your profile. On the profile, you’ll have a link. That link might go to your website. It could also go to a squeeze page, a product or something else entirely. In other words, the link goes to wherever you’re wanting your traffic.
There are various associated aspects, like following people automatically, having the right targets and choosing accounts well. I’m not going to go into those in detail. The overall theme remains the same, that you’re getting traffic through Instagram with automated systems.
The system can also be scaled up. This is where the idea of a large amount of traffic comes from. For example, you could create (or buy) 20 Instagram accounts and set them up with the program. Traffic Laze does contain details about doing this, including where you can go to buy accounts.
There are some additional costs with this angle. You would need to pay for the accounts. If you use the source promoted through Traffic Laze, then you’d pay $1 per account. You would also need a proxy to set each one up, which costs $1 each as well. You should only need the proxies for the initial setup, so the overall investment isn’t huge. Even so, the system was promoted as entirely free, which is only true if you want a limited amount of traffic.
Beyond this, there is video-based training about the various steps involved and beginners should be able to follow along with it.
Oh – and of course there are upsells, which are as follows.
- Advanced training. This simply provides more training, which is meant to increase profits. It costs $37 and you can get it for $17 with the downsell.
- Complete setup. This upsell means everything is done for you and costs $197. This is also an indication that the system isn’t nearly as simple as the marketing implies. Otherwise, why would anyone pay almost $200 to get it set up for them?
- Autopilot. The upsell costs $47 (and can be discounted to $27). It provides training too, which shows you how to make the system run in an automated manner. Of course, the original marketing suggested that the whole thing was automated to begin with, so this is a little suspicious.
- License rights. This costs $97 or $47 with the downsell. It allows users to sell Traffic Laze themselves and keep all of the profits, not just a percentage (that’s the implication anyway_. This is why you see so many people promoting the product.
The licensing aspect may also be behind the $233 paydays that the original marketing keeps talking about. There is one key limitation to mention here. If you did decide to promote Traffic Laze yourself, you’d probably be relying on many of the techniques the product focuses on, including getting traffic from Instagram.
Everyone else will be doing that too. You’ll end up competing with people who have gone through the exact same training as you and are targeting roughly the same audience. That sounds like a recipe for disaster.
Is It Worthwhile?
Traffic Laze is promoted as an amazing system. It is interesting, I’ll give it that much. Still, it isn’t nearly as good as the marketing implies.
Only a fraction of the people who see your profile on Instagram will click on it, even fewer will go to your link and fewer still will end up buying something. The conversion rates from Instagram are terrible because people are not on instagram to click links to websites. They want to stay in Instagram and look at pictures.
Plus, people are pretty smart. They can tell when you use an automated account or are marketing something as opposed to genuinely interacting with people.
It’s hard to imagine that you would get many sales by using this product, which is the end goal.
The only upside to Traffic Laze is that it's a potential traffic source to experiment. If you don't mind spending some money and trying out the system, there's nothing wrong with that. For me? I just see too many red flags and have too many apprehensions about the product to recommend it.
Marketing Versus Reality
If Traffic Laze was promoted realistically it might be a decent enough product. After all, you are (probably) getting traffic. With the right planning, some of the traffic might even result in sales. You might even learn a few new tools and tricks along the way.
The problem is marketing. The sales page for Traffic Laze is filled with incredibly bold claims, including ideas of free traffic, high earnings and a push button system.
None of this is accurate. You need to buy accounts and pay for proxies to scale up the system. That means you’re getting inexpensive traffic, which isn’t the same thing as free. The marketing also suggests that you’ll get a lot of traffic. That’s fairly unlikely too. Most Instagram users aren’t going to click all the way through to a random sales offer.
I’m not convinced about the traffic quality either. Traffic from social media can be good in some situations. It offers a way to reach new audiences and get people excited about what you have to offer. This is still a bit of an uphill battle, as people on social media aren’t normally looking to buy.
The marketing suggests that the traffic converts well. Maybe it does. You’d have to play around with it to really know. I personally suspect that it might convert well for some promotions and industries and not others. After all, different products aren’t all suitable for the same audience.
All of your traffic is also coming from a single source and depending on your niche, people will start to ignore your account, or similar accounts with similar messages, and you may even get banned from Instagram!
Traffic is only half of the battle anyway. You don’t make money from traffic alone. You still need to work on getting conversions, which includes doing some planning and having a business strategy in place. You’re certainly not going to get free traffic that instantly makes you money.
Traffic is an essential component of making money online. It is also a process that takes time and effort. Shortcuts to the process sound great, but they simply don’t work. At best, you might get traffic for a while and some of it may convert. The idea is likely to get less effective over time, especially if everyone is using the same set of techniques.
Some people might find the program appealing in the short-term as an alternative source of traffic to their website. For me, it's not something I'm going to spend time perfecting how to use, since I'm pretty sure this product and method of traffic generation is going to be obsolete within the year.
