What Is It and Is It Worth the Money?
I’m going to answer the second part of this question first…the answer is, No.
The reason I say this is becaue, even though you get two pdf documents, one being the main guide on how to set up and sell on Amazon and finding Chinese products to import and sell on the giant marketplace. The Guide has 70 pages and the information that’s in it isn’t bad. The problem is, that much of it, for starters, can be learnt on Amazon, which has tutorials.
Nobody is better suited to provide tutorials than the ones who know the marketplace – Amazon itself.
Furthermore, there is information in Guide that tells you about setting up accounts with Chinese suppliers, importing goods and even what to do with the language barrier when dealing with Chines agents.
If you really want the AmazonCode product, for as long as this works, on the Chrome browser, in the web address bar type,
With any luck, you will find “Chapter 6: Minimum Viable Product – The AZ Code.” This is the product. In fact, if you can get that far, play around with what you have in front of you. I downloaded everything, including the up-sell from simple searching when I got thinking about what I had and wondered if the other two could be found. Sure enough! In my opinion, you are doing nothing wrong if folks are selling something and do not have the sense to secure it!
I’m writing a review on the product and have no interest in purchasing imports from China so I can resell them!
Upon glancing through these resources though, they are not bad, but they are not the best and they do have some filler in them. The same information ican definitely be had without cost (not in obtaining those using the method I found today, but two business websites with guides on working with Chinese imports from start to end. These are:
Both of these websites are perfectly safe. I have them set to open in a new window or tab so you don’t lose your place here. From what I can see, which also collaborates with what I’ve read today, these resources are superior to those of AmazonCode (AZCode.)
Now you know what the product is and even have given you a way to go get yourself a set of the pdf files (which I don’t think are worth $37 and $197 respectively and are outlandishly high-priced for what you get!) I was quite surprised I stumbled into that find today! I was going to write entirely about the advertising, which I still am, but maybe not in quite as much detail.
The following serves as a lesson to those who read it. I am pretty put out by what I see in advertising like was used for AZCode, so here are those details for your learning…
The Advertising for AZCode Tells Its Story…
I did a review on what I believe is AZCode’s sister product, AZForumula. The entire review is about the advertising alone. I felt I did not need to go any further. Stuff like this should throw up red flags in anybody who sees it, unfortunately for most people, it does the direct opposite.
This is why education about this type of stuff is so badly needed. The losses that comes from inferior and downright worthless products and services is beyond belief! The advertising for this product is child’s play conpared to the earlier product I reviewed. Nonetheless, the coersive persuasion found in both are very powerful and effective.
How folks who put out (in this case, “fair” infoproducts like this and claim that “all the work is done for you” and a whole slew of other ridiculous claims, is beyond me. Here, we have three mediocre digital guides, probably slapped together and from what I see, is not only based on the free stuff you find already available, but very likely came from it!
Let’s talk abut what’s in the advertising. The objective is to compare what’s actually in those guides to how incredibly played up they are in the sales video
The very first thing that pops up are three examples of folks in various places making outlandish sums of money. They’re average people who came across the AZCode system (frankly this isn’t even a system)
There’s not much to say here. The entire sales video is riddled with the flashing of dreams, so-called proof of earnings and huge numbers. You are no longer worried about bovine bosses, alarm clocks, working for someone else, traffic jams and the inability to being able to do things on your own terms instead, you are now concerned with where you are going to spend your next vaction, which expensive car you’re going to buy, etc.
You are shown figures of earnings that are simply over the top and then assured that your skeptical feelings are perfectly normal … it goes on. the adverting is there to soften you up and get you in line for another sale.
There are probably more, but two jump out at me when I watched the video. The appeal to emotion is one of the most widely-used, most common ploys found in advertising. The objective of using this logical fallacy is because not only is is very powerful and effective, it is the easiest way to soften someone up in any communication.
Flashing money and expensive goods (even of those mansions and cars were rented for the videocast!) excites the emotion. Folks are up against it and this is an unrelenting conditions in the lives of most people. This makes for sheer susceptibility to messages like this.
There is no mercy imparted from advertisers who use these tactics.
There is another fallacy that doesn’t get used as much, but it often leads to the emotional appeal, and that is the logical fallacy of the appeal to flattery. The following two slides were used in the video. I believe this little message was split across two slides for a reason though, this isn’t important here. Here they are…
What you are seeing is an invalid argument. Because you are still involved with the sales video, this necessarily identifies you as an intelligent and compitent individual. Just a little thought about this will tell folks that this is simply flattery though, anyone who may be naieve or not with it, won’t see it that way and are actually flattered.
Yes, there are people whom this message will fool and it then does its job of taking a tighter hold of that consumer.
Why I Consider AZCode a Scam
It’s not that the products themselves are worthless because they do have some value. They’re just not worth the prices being asked for, not by a longshot!
I especially look at the AZCode Pro Guide. I was shocked at what littke information is actually in it! It’s $197 for a pdf files with 23 pages of information! What’s worse, here’s what’s in it…
- Costly Mistakes Amazon Sellers Make
- Having an Ideal Marketing Mindset
- Why Customer Service Is Important
- Review Strategies (seller feedback, product review and to turn one into the other)
- Leveraging EBC to Increase Conversion Rates
- Pay Per Click Marketing
- Creating a Sales Funnel
- Creating a Squeeze Page
This is the Pro Guide! I guarantee you, every topic found in this list can be found for free everywhere on the Internet. People purchase these Guides because the advertising plays them up so much. The worst of it all is…
The Lies! The Lies! The Lies!
There’s much, much more that could be said about the advertising campaign for these three handbooks. If I can find the sales video on YouTube, that’s going to grace the top of this Review because people need to see it and then read about it from someone who can see what’s happening and cares about others systematically-getting ripped off!
It goes without saying that, though it is possible to learn from those handbooks, they’re nothing to write home about and certainly not worth any bit of the money hundreds of thousands of people have already paid for! If I can find that video there, it’s coming on here because people have to learn not to get taken by crooks like this!
It goes without saying that most everything in that sales video are lies, misirepresentations of the facts and deliberate intent to sell sizzle where there is no steak! These guides may give you some basics about the topic in consideration here, but you will not get rich from what’s in these guides – not any one of them. I am ever so glad I accidentally came onto them today! It definitely makes for a better review!
The Ultimate Lies in the Sales Video – The Testimonials…
Okay, apart from the concluseion, I’m done with the writing. There are four testimonials in this sales video. I found three out of the four in Fiverr.com, the famous freelance marketplace where actors and artists of all kinds meet up with people needing their services. One of these unfortunately are some people on there willing to create real-looking testimonials for folks like our AZCode creators needed for their bogus advertising scheme. In the order the testimonials came in the video, I found #1, #2 and #4. I could have found #3 as well, but didn’t think what I had already was even necessary, but here they are…
This is just one more case of fraudulent advertising that was used to promote a mediocre product, one that is helpful, but by no means one that would make you a millionaire in less than a year! If you are looking for a viable opportunity to get education and learn a business, I am a proud member of one you might be interested in. There’s no hype, lies or anything false in the advertising and it is a high-quality place of excellence in a community 1.2 million strong and growing. I am going to include a comparison chart between Wealthy Affiliate and AZCode. For what you hopefully didn’t pay ($234) for a little about 150 pages of just “okay” material, you could put another $150 with it and get an entire year of top quality training in affiliate marketing. You can click anywhere on the chart to see my Wealthy Affiliate Review. The chart will follow this paragraph.
Thanks for reading and enjoy!
