Product: Quick Affiliate Profits
Owner: Josh Baldock & Fergal Downes
I wouldn't get too caught up in the 'quick' part of this method, but if you're willing to learn and take action this is totally something you could make money doing. I like the concept and the training is definitely worth 8 bucks. There are drawbacks to consider before buying though as I explain.
There's been some buzz surrounding the launch of this new product and it sounds like it could be an exciting new way for beginners to start banking $100 per day, but does it really stack up?
I haven't purchased a product from Josh Baldock or Fergal Downes if memory serves me correctly, so I'm keen to see if these guys are the real deal or not. The sales page does make the usual claims though, so I'm still a little skeptical...
What Is Quick Affiliate Profits?
This is about leveraging other people's product launches to build your own buyers email list. I actually heard about this method several months ago from a guy named Brett Hitchcock and I have to say it's a smart idea. One of the most important things you can do for your online business is create an audience, and one of the best ways to create an audience is with email marketing. The best type of email list to have is those who have already proven they are buyers.. so the value of this is very high.
Upsells After Buying
The first thing that happens after you buy is, you guessed it, you get hit with the upselling. This is the bread and butter of these kinds of products and in this case, there were 3 upsells ($37, $27 and $97) and if you skip past them, the price lowers each time (downsell).
Anyways, it's the usual stuff really. Some 'done for you' packs and some personal help. The idea is that this stuff will enhance your profits. I rarely buy these though as I like to see how the core product performs without spending more money.
Inside The Members Area
The members area consists of a welcome video, an overview video and 9 training videos in total with some getting into the 20 minute mark which was nice to see.
The overview videos are pretty self explanatory, they give you an idea of what you are about to learn. I'll now break down the video modules so you know what to expect if you decide to buy.
This video starts out by discussing what you should do to create a product depending on your experience. If you already have a product, use that. If you haven't but have made money online, create a PDF or basic video product explaining how you did it. If you're a complete newbie, Josh gives you some ideas on how to bang up a product.
The concept of this system is all about giving away your product as a bonus within another marketers members area. They give their customers better value, you get to build your buyers email list without paying a cent for traffic since only customers are able to get your bonus product after submitting their email address. It's win win and it's potentially a very worthwhile idea.
Product creation freaks people out I think, so the key to not getting hung up on this module is just making a bonus product. Don't overthink it. Just do it. That said, this is your first impression with your new email list so you wanna make it a halfway decent product.
This module walks you through the steps of signing up to Aweber (awesome tool) and creating separate email lists for your new subscribers. The key to making this method so effective is automation. As in, you create a follow up series once, and emails get sent to your list automatically.
This really is a skill in itself, but it's one that is worth taking the time to learn. If you can master email marketing you are going to have a very profitable future online.
Module 3 (Part 1)
This module is about setting up your bonus page, the page people will land on to give you their email for the bonus product you give them. There are many ways to do this, but Josh gives you a simple and low cost method of doing this. You could spend hundreds on services like LeadPages or CLickFunnels, both of which are awesome products, but not necessary when you are just getting started.
Module 3 (Part 2)
This video talks about creating an image for your product which is an easy task if you go to a place like Fiverr.com. For less than 10 bucks you can have a shiny product image which adds value and will increase downloads.
Module 3 (Part 3)
Josh talks about using a product called OptimizePress which I haven't used but I've heard good things about this. Basically, it's a plugin/ WordPress theme that makes building your bonus page easy. It does cost at least $97 though so it's somewhat disappointing he doesn't show you the finer details of creating a bonus page without buying this. If you're on a budget, this may present an issue.
That said, if you want to build a basic WordPress website the free and easy way, watch this video. It's my ugly mug showing you how to do it in under 60 seconds. This makes the process of setting up a domain, hosting and building your site dead simple however, without buying OptimizePress or some other plugin/ theme you will have some learning to do for the setting up of the page itself.
It's really just a matter of putting some text and video in (easy) and creating a form within Aweber which you will then paste into your WordPress page (slightly more difficult). My point being, you can do this for free if you really want to so don't be put off by not using OP. It's all about learning so don't be afraid to fail or screw things up. Just get in and do it and you will get better in time.
This is about contacting the vendors to see if they will place your bonus within their members area. Josh walks you through some of the ways he does this and gives you a good idea on how to do it.
This module quite literally had no training content whatsoever lol. I think he included this to show you that it's part of the process, the part where your buyers list grows.
This video walks you through the process of finding a product to promote to your new list, in this case he recommends a platform called Warrior Plus. I'm sure many of you guys know what that is since this product is sold through that very platform.
Promoting Warrior Plus products is enough to get you rolling but it pays to be careful what exactly you promote. Your subscribers won't like you very much if you promote junk put it that way. I say this because, while there are awesome products on Warrior P, it has it's fair share of junk too.
This video pretty much caps it off which is helpful if you need a refresher.
What I Liked
- Legit method and potentially very lucrative with enough effort
- Does not require buying traffic
- Josh explains things well and seems like a legit marketer
- Offers good insights to help you create longterm success online
- Getting highly targeted buyers onto your email list is gold
What I Didn't Like
- Doesn't go into enough detail on doing this without buying OptimizePress
- I think there are better products to promote than Warrior Plus as an affiliate
- Product creation may stumble some people, but it's very achievable
I like the concept, the price is fair and the training offered a lot of value!
It's not the only way to create an income online, but if you are looking to get into product creation and email marketing, this is an excellent way to do it. There's a decent amount covered in the training, but it's only a piece of the puzzle in reality. This is a business, so be prepared for a bit of learning ahead.
The good thing is that everything you learn is transferrable outside the scope of this system so it's well worth your time. For example, email marketing, creating videos, building bonus pages and working with vendors. It's all good stuff to learn. Anyways, I hope this review has been helpful! Cheers
Did you know that most people fail to make money online?
Despite the wealth of opportunity that exists online right now, there's also lots of fake "gurus" selling bunk programs that over promise and under deliver. It's a wild west!
The good news is... it IS possible for ordinary people to create success online. I know, because I've done it myself. Here's how I went from zero to $8K plus per month online.
