My Affiliate Millionaire Club Review doesn’t Have to Go Far Beyond the Sales Video – Thinking of Joining? Beware!
Read my Review below.
Learn how to spot bait on a hook!
Very often, unscrupulous advertisers and marketers resort to a number of insidious techniques in their advertising campaigns. The video above is from the Affiliate Millionaire Club sales page. In this review, I will be going over that page and the video on it. It is loaded with stuff on it that snags the inexperienced and unwary.
Some of the things we will be covering in this Review will be
- “Proof” of Income
- Appeal to Emotion
- Lying and Contradictions
- Failure to Adequately Disclose What the Product Is or Does
- False Assurance
- Attitude Towards the Consumers Who Buy the Product
These are amongst a number of issues I found with this sales campaign and unfortunately, whether or not the product itself is of any value, to the initiated, the sales campaign does not speak very highly of it.
- Warn folks that this product is most likely less than they would expect it to be.
- Teach a little bit about what to look for in advertising like this to protect one’s self.
- Help you recognize common fallacies used in online advertising today.
I will use the rest of this post to go down through, piece-by-piece, the entire content of this sales page, especially the video and what I’ve found in it.
The Sales Page
We are greeted with an elegant-looking title, directly under which is the sales video, a “Recent Customer” roster to the right and to the left, a down-counter indicating up to 10 available slots left for the day. Beneath these, at the bottom of the page is the e-mail address to contact the company, links for affiliates, terms and privacy, and just below this, a short statement of earnings potentials.
When the video completes, a quite colorful and attractive call-to-action appears between the video and the footer (where the email address, etc are located.
The background graphics are piles of $100 bank notes and imagery of affiliate statements (we will discuss these down the page.) all on a blue background. The overall appearance is “hypish” but not overwhelmingly so. It is designed to excite buying mood for sure!
Two Small Apps on Sales Page
One is there to instill a sense of urgency and the other is mean to assure you – both emotional motivators!
There is a list of alleged customers of the Affiliate Millionaire Club. This list doesn’t change and it repeats. It also lists the same (probably fictitious folks) several times down the list. It’s there most likely to assure you that there are a lot of customers that use this product. I would wager that this list is a fake.
On the left bottom there is a count-down for available slots available. There is purportedly 10 slots per day, so if you don’t hurry, you may not get in today! However, don’t fret…
All you have to do is refresh the page and *presto!* you get all the slots back! How’s that for magic? Also note that it never reaches zero. It stops at two and goes no further. It’s designed to count down to that low number by the time the video finishes and you’re presented with the link to join – which of course, comes with “you’d better hurry!”
Okay, now on the fun stuff!
The sales video is loaded with all kinds of rubbish that is designed to pull in the unwary. During the video, they even discourage anyone who has knowledge of affiliate marketing from joining! Why? Read on…
The video begins with four testimonials. You would expect testimonials to be actual customers who purchased and are using the product. Of course, the folks we find on here are making moulah like they have never made in their lives!
Unfortunately American and European consumers are so used to commercial television that many, if not most, can’t tell real from acting! If you’re one of these, it’s not your fault! The age of commercial advertising that actually tells you what a product is and what it does phased out in the 1940s, and it’s gotten worse over time!
That’s right! Today, it’s all about how a certain product can help you keep your job, make you happier, get better relationships, yadda, yadda!
This one’s not about the product – it’s about YOU getting rich overnight – or getting you to THINK so!
The good old-fashion advertising still exists, but it’s not common, and when you do find it, it’s probably a highly-reputable product or service that doesn’t need to resort to such bogus advertising!
Those folks are not real buyers…they’re all actors. Note that guy in the last of the testimonials. Here he is right here. Take a look.
It will open in a new window so you can come right back here.
He’s been hired to do the gig for a pittance of $5 through a freelance website called fiverr.com. The review you’ll see him in is for another lame product called, “EZ Cash Creator.” If this is a fiverr guy, you can wager that the others are too! I’ve seen him in other testimonials! The one thing you don’t want in testimonials are actors! Don’t let ’em fool you.
These are all fakes! They make great clowns!
During the testimonials, note that the videos of the actors pull away so you can see their affiliate “earnings.” Here’s the facts…
They’re not real! You can get images of these things everywhere on the Internet. You can easily fabricate them on your favourite paint program! Even if they are real, you can bet your boots that they don’t belong to these “customers.” Quite often, I review products before they are launched, and what do I find on the sales page?
The sales video – and sometimes different versions of videos which are evidently created for different scenarios. What do I find on these? Here are customers who have purported to buy the product being advertised, complete with images of daily & weekly snapshots from Clickbank and ClickSure – before the product has even launched!
If you see these plastered about on a site or in a sales video, a red flag should go up and you should about face…
Lies & Contradictions
They come in all flavours.
Here, we have potential buyers being told that they get unlimited hosting and domain names. This means you can put as many free domains on there as you would like!
Yet, later on, they tell you the offer comes with up to ten websites! What happened to “unlimited?” It’s been slipped in there so this passes on to your subconscious mind and works to their advantage. So is true with the rest of the logical fallacies we find in sales media of this kind.
One fallacy often used in advertising is ambiguity. This is like speaking with the forked tongue or being two-faced. Its use is very common! It’s when they tell you something to get you thinking one way, but their intent is altogether different. Their statements, questions and propositions come with double meaning so engineered that you, by human nature, will take it one way, yet they’re protected because it can be taken in the way it truthfully is.
Ever notice propositions on some signs occur in quotes? You get the message and omit the quotes if you don’t know their meaning, but it keeps the proprietor out of jail for false advertising! Just another thing thrown in…
A prime example is the so-called restriction that you must be brand-new to affiliate marketing before you will be accepted into the club. They tell you this to make you think the product or membership is exclusive and thus, emotion kicks in – you don’t like the feeling of being left out! Now, this IS sometimes true in certain cases!
Here it’s a flat-out lie!
If you have the money in your bank account, you’re accepted! They don’t care who purchases, as long as the money flows … their way!
They’re appeals to emotion and nothing more! This guy tells us he’s at war with gurus who steal others’ money so he’s going to make this software public so he can “fight back???”
Let’s get real about this! The only thing this guy cares about (if he’s even the actual owner by the way or just another actor playing his part) is himself and what he can get out of you!
This video, and others like it, are filled to the brim with lies and contradictions of all kinds. This is why they remove the user controls so you can’t review back without listening to the whole thing again! This too, is another common tactic amongst unscrupulous marketeering.
This video is LOADED with this! Here’s a line-up of imagery that grabs the average person and pulls them around the corner where they systematically get robbed!
A classic Silver Bullet…a Big Red Easy Button. Yes, you push the button and THEY make all the money! Even if this thing does work, it certainly won’t be as easy as 1-2-3! If it were, every man and his brother would be after this – and it’s not the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity they have you believe it to be! You will NOT be making $1,200 bang! bang! bang! It’s just not going to happen.
Though this advertising gives you a tidbit of information (“hints” a better term) notice it’s all about flashing that $1,200 over and over in your face! This is not to mention the flaunting of wealth. …A few images from this sales video…
Do you REALLY think this guy got all of his wealth from this piece of software??? Hardly! Don’t let him fool you into thinking you will either!
Guess where he REALLY makes his money! You guessed it…pulling the wool over people’s eyes with shady but effective advertising!
Shades of Altruism
Most of these kinds of videos have the same kind of stuff in them…
The commentator “stumbled” into this “loophole” (which isn’t a loophole at all! It’s a piece of lousy software and regurgitated bits of information that you get with it that’s supposed to be training materials.
He wasn’t sure he was going to share this software and even though, he wasn’t sure what was he stumbled into, in other words, he drops the pricing down to “affordable” levels at the end of the video in spite of spending “years developing this thing!” Do you see the contradiction?
Do you not wonder why the user controls for the video are not there???
They want you to see this thing once, fall for it, and with an appeal to emotion, BUY this crap!
How’s this for assurance: He’s so sick and tired of all the other gurus STEALING from you and me, that he’s going to put this thing out there, and you’d better jump on it quick whilst it’s still there!
You get this in practically all of these type of products! Look around this site to some of the others. You will find these elements in the other videos I captured and put on here!
This guy wants you to THINK he’s doing a big favour for you and is altruistic. Don’t believe it for a moment! It’s why I put the video on here and am now discussing it. I want to show YOU what’s behind this crap and what you DON’T need!
There are a number of references about students, and you becoming one, on this video. I have done a number of other reviews where this illusion is employed. Very likely, the only instruction you will get are a few onboard resources and a help desk if you have problems with the software – or want a refund!
What are you being taught here? This guy can only handle ten “students” per day. This is all about a “done-for-you” product that, within a few days, slaps over $1,200 a day into your bank account!
Here’s a chilling bit you might not have noticed in the video…
They’re going to want your bank account information so the product can automatically put your killings right into your bank account. The software’s set up to automatically do that for you!
Do you really want this???
There’s no school, college or university here. There’s not even a seminar save perhaps, some e-books, videos and other media offered. Like many other products like this, you will find some, but I will clue you in that it won’t be much more than what you can learn for free already!
You are no student and don’t let this chap put that rubbish in your mind. It’s a gimmick to make you feel good and assure you that you’re really getting something.
Conclusion and Recommendations
This product may work, and it may not. I have not gone past the sales video nor will I pay anything to get a peek at it. The advertising in this campaign is enough to scare me away! I’ve been around this type of advertising to know without any doubt that this offer is a
If you really want to become an affiliate marketer, my advice to you is to go where you are welcomed, whether you’re a novice, an intermediary or you know your stuff! Here’s one more thing for the road for you…
The reason why they don’t want experienced people in here is NOT because they won’t follow simple instructions! Hogwash! Really, they don’t care WHO is willing to take the bait, whether they’re dumb enough as an experienced marketer or newbies that simply have no idea what they’re getting into. They want YOUR money! They want people who have no idea what they’re getting into so they can STEAL THEM BLIND!
Remember how I was telling you about products with advertising that tells you what it is and how it works? If I were to take away all the BS that’s in that video above, there’d be NO substance left! The video might be five minutes long, if that!
I will clue you in…
