This really wasn't a bad product. For the price you pay and the quality of information delivered, I'll give it a positive rating. However, if you are a newbie to online business, Niche System Domination probably won't work for you.
Before You Buy
Honestly, I enjoy reviewing terrible products because it makes my job easy. When I find something that might be good, I actually have to get in and read or watch all the material to see what they're actually up to.
Niche System Domination started off on the right foot with slogans like this:
But after the initial sales page, they quickly went awry. After I bought it, I was confronted by several upsells and downsells. I felt like I was being sent to the meat grinder. Here's the map of what you can expect (taken from the JV page where affiliates are recruited).
And here's an image of the link you have to click to say “no thanks bro”.
WHY can these guys not understand that no one enjoys being treated like this? I know it's standard for the industry, but it really makes a bad impression on your company. Sell the basic package, then follow up with stuff that people actually want to buy rather than stupid “one time offers”.
What I Liked
The course was well organized, and it was actually a good idea. Though I kind of complained above about having to watch the material, I got some good ideas from it. Even just the idea to build small niche websites and advertise in Bing based on what the competition is doing is a pretty golden idea.
I don't know why I never considered it before! That little piece of info is worth my $12. Value delivered 🙂
There are some basic videos on how the system works, how to set up your site, and how to do basic keyword research that were not bad.
The best thing about the videos is that they were really “over the shoulder”, while Kevin Mason SHOWED us what to do. A lot of products fail at this, and just TELL us, assuming we know how. Really good job here guys.
I also think that their focus on Bing, Yahoo, and Facebook was appropriate. Google ads are shockingly expensive and could require a really big budget to get started. Losing money is easy with Adwords.
What I Didn't Like
First off, before I could even reach the members area I was hit up by yet ANOTHER attempt to sell me something. Come on man, I just paid you $12, just give me my damn lessons.
The website wasn't very intuitive, but I can't complain for a twelve dollar product. In the same vein, there were only about 15-20 videos. I guess it isn't that bad for the price, but it certainly wasn't a comprehensive system. I certainly don't feel like they are going to help me “dominate” anything.
To be honest, I've seen all this stuff before. Build a site. Research the competition. Track your ads. Ummm, that's basic PPC. I did get the idea to just keep things small and build multiple niche sites, but for anyone familiar with PPC, this is not worth your time.
In fact, aside from the initial idea I got from watching the overview video, I think Traffic Blackbook is a much better PPC training product.
Not for Newbies
Though he goes through a lot of the basics, there still a lot more that he left out. During the tracking video he mentioned pixels. If you don't know what those are, you'll be lost of the rest of the video. Little things like that which are glossed over contribute to the non-newbie-friendliness of the series.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad, but it left me feeling like it was too advanced for newbies, too easy for experienced marketers.
If you are an intermediate marketer looking to expand your PPC knowledge, then Niche System Domination is definitely worth your $12. Even then, I don't think it'll be the magical product to skyrocket you to riches. If you have experience with PPC, or are a complete newbie, skip this one.
PPC requires a budget and a willingness to lose some money in case a campaign goes wrong. I don't' recommend PPC for new online marketers.
