Product Name: Commission Killer
Product Owner: Rob Walker and Craig Kaye
What is it?
Buggy software that is supposed to produce sites and content, but is largely ineffective.
Commission Killer offers software and some training that is designed to develop websites, affiliate links and content for you, but falls far short of its aims. The product is far from the easy button it claims to be and most people would make money faster and more effectively by doing the work for themselves and avoiding this product altogether.
Before You Buy
At almost $50, this product is one that I would recommend avoiding altogether. You basically have no idea what you are purchasing before you pay the money, and the hype alone should be an indication that it is simply not worth taking the risk.
What I Liked
Nothing. This is just another hyped product with no value.
What I Didn’t Like
The internet marketing industry is littered with poor quality products that don’t meet any of the hype that surrounds them and Commission Killer is just another one of them. Don’t think for a moment that they are going to make money for you…
Or that making money online will really be as simple as just following a few instructions…
In fact, there is nothing unique or unusual about the product at all, and the claims that are made are the same as hundreds of other people make.
I don’t know about you, but my common sense tells me to stay as far as possible from this product as possible. After all, it simply isn’t possible for a product to offer what this one is claiming.
Step back and think about it for the moment. There are a lot of products that claim easy money online, but most of them won’t give you any idea about how to do so without purchasing their product. You might argue that they want to keep their trade secrets a secret, but if that was the case, they would still offer some indication of what they are selling.
Why don’t they? Because they’re selling junk.
If a product like this really was as good as it claimed, some of the people who purchased it would tell their friends and family what to do, and soon the information would become common knowledge. Additionally, the more people who started trying the approach, the less effective it would be.
If you do some digging online, you’ll notice that the majority of the reviews for this product are negative. The few positive reviews that are out there are very vague and it looks like the people reviewing the product didn’t actually have any idea what it was about. This is actually pretty likely, because many of the reviewers for any product are affiliates of the product, so they want you to buy it.
Common sense says that you should avoid the product altogether, but what about the product itself?
Honestly, Commission Killer is a product that basically has no potential of helping people to make money online. The system that the product promotes involves taking the content from other sites and modifying it before the user puts this on their website. This process of ‘creating’ content is known as spinning, and it is always risky – especially when the initial content isn’t even yours.
This is a completely unethical system, and it’s one that is never going to work well. Spun content is not particularly interesting to read and often it doesn’t even make sense. Furthermore, search engines are progressively getting better at picking up on this approach, and it is one that they do not like. This has the potential to backfire significantly in the future.
Now, Commission Killer does contain training, but it’s pretty bad, and lacking in a number of areas. In particular, the site doesn’t teach you how to effectively get traffic to your site, information that is critical for being successful.
In fact, the software that comes with the product doesn’t even work properly a lot of the time. When it does work, the software does kind of produce a website, but there is still a whole lot of work that you need to do to get it working as it should – and even more work to actually earn any money from it.
All in all, I suspect that you would spend more time trying to get the entire system to work as it is supposed to than it would take to actually build a website and write content yourself. Furthermore, if you did it yourself, you would be better off and more successful than you ever could be through Commission Killer.
In fact, if you want another indication that the product should be avoided, what about the fact that their discount opt-in page doesn’t even work?
To me, that’s a pretty big indication of how little the owners actually care about their product, which suggests that customer support within the product is likely to be pretty bad.
Who Is This Product For?
Personally, I don’t think this product would be helpful for anyone, especially not people who are new to internet marketing.
If you are going to spend close to $50 on any product, make sure it is one that you know is going to work – and that certainly doesn’t apply to Commission Killer. In fact, a much better alternative is Wealthy Affiliate – particularly because you can use the free version of the site to check out whether it is for you or not.
Wealthy Affiliate is a training website for making money online with a strong emphasis on affiliate marketing. It has a fantastic community and a large amount of support regardless of your level of experience and skills. Personally, I would suggest paying $19 for the first month of Wealthy Affiliate to try it out for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
