Most Internet Marketing Products Suck – Get a Refund!

There is a lot of hype out there, especially in many Internet Marketing circles.  Lots of people selling magic systems and special formula’s to help you get rich quick or at the very least make money online.  But how can you tell the good products from the bad hyped up products.  Today’s post is about Internet Marketing products that suck and how to separate the  creme from the crap.

Most people who begin to start any kind of business online or try to setup any website will no doubt find themselves receiving emails promising the world.  From free reports to now free training video’s, everyone wants to get to know you and everyone seems to be able to help you.  All you have to do is simply fill in your name and email and salvation can be yours.

The majority of the Internet Marketing products being pandered about on the web are simply crap.  Most are just re-hashed reports transcribed from someone else’s tele-seminar in order to get you on their email list.

Now don’t get me wrong – there isn’t anything wrong with trading an email for some free information.  I do it all the time and it helps me get to know the author of the report and possibly develop a friendship.  What bothers me is when this relationship escalates to a sale of an email course, eBook, video course, access to a membership forum or whatever…  and the product is just junk.

If you find yourself in a situation like this, don’t just take it and loose your money.  Contact the author and GET A REFUND!  If the product sucks, then don’t be afraid to fire up an email and ask for your money back.  98% of the information products available online come with a 30-60 day money back, iron clad, no questions asked, even if its 3:00 am in the morning guarantee.   If that’s the case then exercise your right to get your money back.

One way to make sure you get good useful information is to simply visit the author’s blog, leave comments and start a conversation that way. Many blog owners will end a blog post asking if anyone has questions.  And many blogs will link back to your website just for helping add to the conversation.  This is a great way to get to know more experienced marketers and help your own website ranking at the same time.

Another way is to visit some Internet Marketing forums. There are many great forums with a ton of information and advice from their members.  If you have a question about a particular product simply post a question in one of these forums. There are always friendly people that are more than willing to help.

Here is a list of some really good and free Internet Marketing Forums:

Real WordPress Blog Automation

automationI need to vent here!

My last couple of posts I wrote about the Affiliate Mage System and Master Mage Systems recently launched by Greg Jacobs.  Well the launch is out and honestly I was very shocked and I feel I need to apologize for adding to the hype.

When I found out how much he is charging for this system my jaw just dropped.  Priced at $1297 I could not believe the audacity.  Even with a $300 discount using coupon code “LetMeIn” only brings this down to $997.  Still this is way way too much!  Granted it looks like a good product but it is way overpriced. I’ll explain why.

Almost everything in this package can be purchased with existing services or plugins and will cost you a tenth of what this is priced at!

So today I’m going to review some alternative ways to autoblog and add some WordPress Automation to your business with out it costing you a thousand dollars.

Firepow

Firepow is a great tool for managing hundreds of blogs.  Andrew Hansen was one of the first to do this and continues to deliver a high quality product! Firepow allows you to quickly build an armada of WordPress blogs each prebuilt with a nice complement of plugins designed to optimize, SEO, and promote your niche. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out I encourage you to do so.  Price on Firepow is about $100 bucks/ month

WP Robot

This is in a nut shell a suite of wordpress modules that fit together to do almost everything that the Master Mage System can do.  Autopost articles to your blog, translate articles to produce unique content, auto embed Flickr images in to each post, auto embed your Amazon, ebay, Clickbank affiliate products into your posts, auto emend YouTube videos, create Yahoo answers posts, and a whole lot more. I havent fully tested this one yet but so far it looks very promising  :-)  Price is about $140 bucks.

Rolling Your Own

There are certainly more ways to skin this cat and accomplish more for less.  There at many different plugins out there that will allow you to make up your own combinations to automate much of your blogs.  If you own PHBay, PHPOstock, Autoblogger, CARP, Caffeinated Content, etc., the list goes on and on… you can set yourself up with a very nice auto-blogging system that will make you a nice chunk of change.  Many Many Internet Businesses have been built on these exact tools and have done very very well.

Just please remember, no matter what anyone tells or what you read in a sales letter,  there are no push button successes.  They all take work.

What kind of WordPress Automation have you put together on your sites? What tools are you using to make your life easier and to help you make money.  Share your ideas, we would love to hear it!
