Why I Love Bad Products

 

I  love it ever few months when a obviously overhyped crap product comes out as it allows me to clean out the lists of who I receive emails from. I recently got a huge deluge of emails about the Clickbank code. So I checked it out. The problem was the further I dug the more obvious it became that the sales letter was the biggest lie since ….well since the last big lie.

If I can spot that after less than 10 minutes research it means that the people promoting it..and there are lots either A) know it’s a poor choice to promote it and don’t care about their subscribers or B) Don’t care enough about their subscribers to do a bit of research.

So lets look at the obvious things that they should have noticed.

1. The headline…. Clickbank newbie makes $48,000 in his first Month

This product is by Michael Jones  ( it’s not really but we’ll come to that later!)  A bit of research would have shown that Michael Jones Had a product out late last year called Cracking The Adwords Code And also a product on clickbank called The Adwords Manifesto   So hardly a newbie!!  He’s been using the same methods in the book to rake in thousands a month If you believe the other products..

2. The fact that he already had a product on Clickbank that was hyped by other marketers surely doesn’t mean that those $48,000 worth of sales came from that product does it???  I’ll let you decide!

3. Ok so who is Michael Jones  Ok so according to all his sales copy he is an Ohio man…. really? since when was Ohio part of Israel? From reading various posts in different forums I beleive that Michael Jones is an alias for Roy Oron & Maayan Marzan. The Two have had a string of products over the past few years. Just search on their names and you’ll see pleanty of negative comments.   The Voice of Michael Jones is provided by a Voice Over artist from Ohio who advertises on Elance. So The Ohio Connection is sort of correct.

The product itself is just a rehash of other products and a rewriting of “Michael Jones” other Adwords products…  Basically find a product on clickbank, spend $500 a day on adwords and wooo hoo we are rich…. or possibly heading towards bankrupcy.

You’ll find that every month or so a product comes along that is hyped by loads of people usually this means that it’s payign good commissions not that it’s good. In the Past year i have found only  ahandful of products that I would consider worth promoting. One of those was a very similar product to The Clicbank code called Commission Blueprint If you want to get into adwords then i would recommend that. Personally I’ll be sticking with Article Marketing

 

 

Be careful out there,  and unsubscribe from those lists!!

Mark, you are so right. I’m tired of the HYPE. It’s taken me awhlie but I’ve narrowed it down to just a few people I trust. You to seem to be so giving and I’ve pretty much subscribed to most everything you talk about. These so called gurus are destined to fail in the long run you can only fool the people some of the time not all the time. Keep up the good work.

I recently purchased an IM product because it was favorably reviewed by a guru I trust and one of the few whose newsletter I continue to get. It was pretty cheap, and it soon became obvious why. The developer continually tries to upsell the buyers to more expensive options and services. She continues to send more “opportunities” to my inbox (getting ready to pull the plug on that one). And her whole marketing thrust is what I call the Internet Marketing Pyramid Scheme: a bunch of IM newbies sucking in IM wannabees with Get-Rich-With-IM “products.”

It is just the power of the sales page, people really can sell a polished turd if the sales letter is persuasive enough.

Should they do it, no, but people will.
As far as people promoting it 95% of them wont have ever seen the product and wouldn’t look at it if they were offered a copy.

Too many people consider it to be all about the money and not much else.

Hi markjust to let you know I will be clicking on the official button soon. Just clearing out all the crap and unsubscribing from all the rubbish so there’s nothing to distract me..You are so right about BAD products out there and for a newbie like me they’re so hard to sort the good from the bad. I have to confess I have never done social sites etc, always been too busy learning well…everything I’ve been learning so I’m smiling to myself right now because I can’t fathom how to dam well twitter you can you believe? See you sometime today Regards Jackie

Gee – – I can’t blame anyone for being down on all the crap being offered. I have to ignore the hype in all the offers coming to me and look for something of real value. I try to filter the good stuff from the junk. That can be a real trick.

But anyone here bashing the Clickbank Code product just didn’t bother to check it out – or, perhaps has something against the producers.

If you watched that long video on the sales page by “Michael Jones” ( or whoever he is ), he seems to be proud, arrogant and snobbish. But, he’s not that way at all in the actual product videos.

But this guy is not from Ohio. If I know my local area well (I’ve lived here for 55 years), he’s from close to home here in the southern U.S.

I don’t know why I chose to buy the Clickbank Code, but I know that no one in this thread has actually seen it and made an honest statement about it (the product). I’ve had it for 3 weeks, and I’m not finished viewing all of the videos yet. But they are very good and “Michael” does a great job — covers a lot of ground and keeps focus on what the customer bought the product for.

It is highly relevant, excellent quality and the extra goodies he never promoted give the purchaser some great, (also excellent quality) products to promote of their own — aside for all the offers from Clickbank. And, he has added more relevant and high quality bonus stuff over the past 3 weeks, enriching the offer, but still has the same promotional copy online.

Since this is the first bash of Clickbank Code that I’ve found, I find that its just off-course since you obviously did not review the product.

Rick,

do you think i would say stuff like that without thoroughly checking out the product.??

I have seen it … and it’s still the same crap that thats been offered before… There is nothing new in it. If you believe there is you haven’t been around for every long. It’s a blatant rip off of several recent products.

Do you have an ulterior motive for posting ?

I guess you are surprised that i approved your post but why not tell me why “michael jones ” claims to be a newbie and claims to earn $48,000 in his first month despite the fact that he has been selling CB related products since last year??

Don’t believe me?.. Do a whois search for his products , you’ll find they and they are owned by the same swiss company.

You may have been taken in by the lies and hype but it doesn’t mean the rest of us have to believe it.

As Rick stated it doesn’t surprise me if there’s relevant information and probably is a pretty good course.

Bottom line is Marks comment to Rick’s response.
“michael jones ” claims to be a newbie and claims to earn $48,000 in his first month despite the fact that he has been selling CB related products since last year??

From what I’ve researched “michael jones ” is FAR from a newbie but a pro at affiliate markeitng long before this course came out.

Totally miss leading to any beginner.
What he claims just isn’t true allthough he porbably did make all this money $48,000 but he knew exactly what he was doing long before he started using click bank. (years and years of professional experience he has)

I personally didn’t have a problem with the Click Bank program since I am a newbie. i did not like the Cash Code. The biggest problem I have with Michael Jones is the fact that he promotes worst garbage from other so called guru’s. It is getting quite frustrating. Thanks Mark. Awesome work.

Mark,

Sounds like Rick had other motives in his post shows that he knew very little about the individual.

those of us that know you from WPGM know that you cut thru the B.S. and your info is accurate.
