What Is It?
A PDF guide on how to promote product launches.
Commissions Monster delivers some valuable information but just doesn’t live up to the hype created on the sales page.
Before You Buy
I have to mention that this is yet another product endorsed by James Knight, who just becomes more of a liar every time I see him appear on camera. This time he cooked up some story about “searching the internet” for someone successful to teach us how to be successful in affiliate marketing. Check out my recent post about Knights deceptive marketing tactics at their worst.
Other than, the sales page for Commissions Monster was very typical for a WSO. Apparently we are going to learn how to make $20,000 in one week, working just a few hours a day, and gain financial freedom almost instantly.
Wow. I can’t wait!
In my opinion, I could care less how much the product creator makes. I want to know what I am going to be paying for. Instead, they just advertise a mystery system that we just have to trust is going change our lives.
After purchasing, we are fed even more BS about making money faster/easier ($15), and how we can acquire some passive income ‘machines’ ($17). Something else was offered for $27, but I was bored by then.
What I Liked
The vast majority of the guide talks about offering quality bonuses to people that purchase through your links. Nadir Phoon, Edmund Loh & Venkata actually do offer some decent bonuses inside the members area, including Ultimate Traffic Monster and Classified commissions. Naidy Phoon does actually create some decent products, so offering them for free is a pretty good deal.
I also felt that the guide was worth the $7 I paid. It has about 37 pages of information (47 total, 9 pages introduction, 1 end-page), and actually gives some quality advice. The Commissions Monster “technique” is a little thin, but not bad.
- Pt. 1: Offer good bonuses
- Pt. 2: Center your promotion around the product launch
There’s some decent advice on what type of bonuses to offer, like “automators” or “accelerators”, and even suggests that you create your own exclusive bonuses you think could be sold on the marketplace as stand-alone products.
Not a bad idea! I’m a supporter of value and exclusivity!
What I Didn’t Like
Generalized, DUH Advice
If you are familiar with WSOs, Clickbank, and JVZoo, you likely won’t learn anything new here. This is just another version of what everyone in the MMO circle knows:
- promote digital products
- launch jacking
- offer bonuses
There is no real “method” to the method if you know what I mean. I gives us some generalized advice on how to run a campaign surrounding a product launch, but aside from a few example emails, doesn’t show us what kind of sales copy coverts, or what has worked for him in the past.
You’ll read Commissions Monster and think, “OK, that sounds nice. How do I do that?”
Not an Evergreen Method
Digital products in the MMO space are very competitive, and launch jacking with bonuses is no secret. This is not going to be a cakewalk. What makes it even harder is that the vast majority of products you’ll be promoting will fade out of existence very shortly.
I just reviewed Phoons products a week or two ago shortly after they launched and those guides have already faded to “freebie” status! Two weeks and they’re dead? That doesn’t sound like a quality product promotion!
The profits in the Commissions Monsters system are reliant on you bombarding your list with make money offers every week. If that’s not something you want to do, then this product isn’t for you. If that’s your idea of what affiliate marketing is, you might be able to pick up some pointers for the cost of $7.
The guide was well written and worth the money. However, it absolutely did NOT deliver the amazing method promised in the sales page. Plus, personally, I would rather put my efforts into building a business that can actually survive the long term rather than just another “send out MMO email offers” business that relies heavily on hyped product launches from scuzzy gurus.
I make money through affiliate marketing, but I don’t rely on “make money online” promotions or launch jacking to earn money. The world of affiliate promotions is not limited to building a list and spamming people with the next big secret method to financial freedom.
