Commission Autopilot Review

Commission Autopilot Review

Commission Autopilot is a new system recently released by veteran Internet marketer Paul Ponna. Although his marketing strategy and concepts are not entirely new, his system does put an interesting twist on those techniques. If you are looking for an honest and unbiased Commission Autopilot review, then you have come to the right place. I plan to go into great detail, covering both the good and bad points of this latest product to hit the market.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a review, though. If you are looking for the official Commission Autopilot website then CLICK HERE.

What is Commission Autopilot?

After purchasing Commission Autopilot, I was taken to the members area and presented with the meat of the product – two pieces of marketing software. The two programs are called the “Commission Activator” and the “Commission Multiplier”. Each piece of software is divided into its own section and contains numerous video tutorials on both how to use each piece of software and tutorials on how to succeed in Internet marketing in general.

First, let’s look at the Commission Activator program:

commission autopilot

Once you open Commission Autopilot’s “Commission Activator” software, you will be presented with an easy to use keyword search box. Simply enter your niche or root keyword (just as you would in any keyword research tool) and Commission Activator scours the Internet in search of relevant PLR (“Private Label Rights”) content. This is simply public documents, eBooks, etc., that you are free to reproduce or sell as your own product. Once Commission Activator locates relevant PLR documents, the software automatically scans the content and inserts clickable affiliate links with your Clickbank hoplink ID. The software then saves the PLR content with your hoplinks included. In other words, the software has searched the Internet for a relevant eBook related to your root keyword, populated that eBook with YOUR affiliate links, and then saved the eBook as if you were the original creator.

Now, you might be thinking, “If that is all it does, then how will I make any money?” Well, that is where the Commission Multiplier software comes in.

So, let’s take a look at Commission Multiplier:

commission autopilot review

Commission Autopilot’s Commission Multiplier takes the eBooks, PDF files, or other PLR content containing your affiliate links from Commission Activator, and then the software automatically distributes that content to content distribution websites. These websites are considered highly authoritative and trusted by Google. Not only that, but the software also has a feature that works in the background to built backlinks to your content to help boost their popularity. In other words, Commission Autopilot gets your PLR content containing your affiliate links to customers searching for information related to your niche.

Commission Autopilot Review – Good and Bad Points

So now that you know what Commission Autopilot is all about, let’s take a look at the good and bad points of the system.

First, the bad points:

  • Although there is a vast amount of PLR content on the Internet, you may have difficulty finding just the right eBook if you are searching for an obscure niche or keyword phrase.
  • While Commission Multiplier does a good job of distributing your content, do not expect to reach thousands of visitors per PLR article you distribute.

OK, now the good points:

  • Commission Autopilot does work and simplifies a time-tested and proven technique. Rather than having to spend hours manually searching for and editing PLR content, the software does it automatically.
  • Commission Autopilot is affordable and comes with a 100% money back guarantee. If you do not make any money within your first 60 days, simply request a refund.
  • Commission Autopilot allows you to get approximately a few hundred viewers of your PLR content per submission, so you should make some money per PLR article you submit for distribution.
  • Commission Autopilot support is excellent, and they seem committed to helping others succeed in Internet marketing.

Conclusions:

My conclusion as part of my Commission Autopilot review is that it is a quality product that works… to an extent. You will not make millions of dollars overnight with this system, but you should make a fairly respectable amount of money if you implement the software as part of your overall marketing business plan. PLR content is a valuable component to Internet marketing, but it should be treated as just one facet of your overall strategy. Continue to pursue other marketing strategies discussed here at Volcanwall.com such as niche marketing and eCommerce, but definitely keep PLR marketing in mind.

So, my final verdict on this product is that it does work and I recommend you check it out. Implement it in your marketing business, and if it does not make you money within 60 days, simply request a refund. Results will vary, but with a money back guarantee, you really have nothing to lose by giving it a shot. Thanks for reading, and I hope you found my Commission Autopilot review helpful.

Boxshot King Review

An Honest Boxshot King Review

One of the most effective methods of making money online is by creating your own information products. But, the challenge that most marketers face is designing professional sales pages with cool product graphics that attract both affiliates and actual customers. Personally, I am terrible at designing graphics, so this was a particularly big hurdle for me and my business. But, those days of trying to muddle through Photoshop are over thanks to the recent release of Boxshot King.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a simply a review. If you are looking for the official Boxshot King website, CLICK HERE.

Introducting Boxshot King – My Boxshot King Review

Boxshot King is a newly released graphics program designed by Jack Born. The software was specifically created to make designing box covers, product covers, DVD covers, etc., to be as simple as possible. If you have ever attempted to market your own eBook or information product, you likely understand how important having a good product cover image is to your conversion rate. Not matter how informative your eBook or digital product may be, if you do not have a professional looking box or book cover, your sales will suffer.

Boxshot King eliminates the need to outsource this aspect of graphic design by utilizing a simple point and click interface to easily transition your images to professional looking product covers. One of the best parts about this software is that it is hosted on the actual Boxshot King website, so you can work on your covers from any computer! Not only that, but it also works on both a MAC or a PC.

Here is what you will see when you first log into the Boxshot King Members Area:

Boxshot King Review

 

Simply click the “Create” or “Start Now” button to begin designing your graphics or cover images. After clicking the button to begin designing your graphics, you will be taken to a page where you can select from a number of basic template options. These templates range from book covers to binders to boxes to DVDs. Boxshot King even lets you superimpose your graphic onto the screen of an iPad or Kindle!

Here is a very basic preview of some of the templates offered to members of Boxshot King:

Boxshot King

 

(These are just a small sample of the types of templates offered by Boxshot King.)

Once you select your desired template, Boxshot King will ask you to upload a cover image you would like to use. Once you select the cover image located on your computer, Boxshot King will automatically adjust the image proportions to fit perfectly onto your template.

But what if you do not have a cover image already? No problem! Boxshot King also comes with an entire library of free cover backgrounds. You are free to select a background image provided by Boxshot King, or upload your own background photo from either your own collection or from the Internet. Once you have a background image selected, you can then insert a book title and additional images all from within the software library to make your cover look just right.

So, while Boxshot King is not the most powerful graphics design tool, it is one of the most user friendly tools for creating professional digital product covers. Also, because Jack Born believes so strongly in the quality of his product, he offers a 60 day money back guarantee – no questions asked! That is what really sold me on the product. Of course, I am creating graphics well beyond what I was able to create with Photoshop, so I will not be needing the refund. But, it is always nice to be able to try out a product without having to worry about whether or not it will meet your needs. If you are unhappy with your purchase (for whatever reason), simply contact Jack within the first two months for a full refund of your purchase price.

So, here’s the breakdown…

Boxshot King Review – The Good and Bad Points:

The Bad Points:

  • Boxshot King lacks the options and power of more expensive programs like Photoshop. However, it is extremely efficient at creating digital product covers. Only purchase this product if you are looking for a fast and easy way to create professional covers for your digital eBooks, etc.
  • The Boxshot King software is completely online, so you must be connected to the Internet to edit your graphics.

The Good Points:

  • Boxshot King is extremely affordable and allows you to create unlimited, professional covers for your digital products.
  • Boxshot King comes with a complete and guaranteed refund policy for a period of sixty days. If you are unhappy, simply request a refund – no questions asked.
  • While the software is not as powerful as Photoshop, it is much easier to use. Also, it is extremely fast and efficient at performing its primary function – creating professional digital product covers and graphics for your sales pages.
  • The software is used online so you can work on your graphics and covers from any computer, whether it is a MAC or PC.
  • Boxshot King comes with an excellent support system. There is both live chat and an email support ticket system.

Boxshot King Review – My Conclusions:

Boxshot King is an excellent product for those looking to create professional covers for their digital products. However, you should not depend on this software for higher end graphic design projects in general. While Boxshot King lacks the functionality of more expensive products like Photoshop, it is far more affordable and far easier to use when it comes to creating covers.

If you are a beginner at graphics design, or simply cannot afford to purchase and learn Photoshop, give Boxshot King a shot. If you like it and it meets your needs, keep it. If you feel, for whatever reason, that the software is not for you, simply request a refund within the first 60 days.

I hope you have found this Boxshot King Review helpful, and please do not hesitate to contact me or post comments below with any questions.

Easy Money – How You Can Supplement Your Income With Affiliate Marketing

Easy Money Affiliate Methods

More and more people are looking for ways to supplement their income these days. It is hard to find individuals who haven’t felt the money crunch that is sweeping the nation and most parts of the world. If you are looking to make some easy money to help pay your bills and do what you want to do, you should consider getting into affiliate marketing.

Anyone Can Make Easy Money with Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is a great way to make easy money online since anyone can get into it. Whether you’re young and have full-time school or a job, laid off and are looking to help keep your head above the water, or you’re retired and need something to supplement your income, you can get into affiliate marketing.

The reason for this is that the whole process is so easy. There isn’t a lot of technical skill involved, and you don’t have to make any up-front investment if you don’t want to or can’t afford to. One of the big things that draws people to this way of making easy money online is that they don’t have to work on a set schedule. If they only have a couple hours a week to put into it, they can still make money. Then the more time you spend on it, the more money you can make.

So if you are thinking about jumping into affiliate marketing to earn easy money, the first thing you need to do is a learn what is involved in this easy money method. This is ridiculously simple, and you can get great resources that delve deep into the methods that will bring you the most money, but the basics are always the same.

Choose Your Niche

Figuring out what you are going to sell is obviously a crucial part to making easy money with affiliate marketing. It does no good to not know where you energies are supposed to be directed.

Many people are intimidated by the idea of choosing a niche because they think it is hard to do. But all you really have to do is ask yourself what you are interested in. You don’t have to be an “expert” on the subject – you just need to list off a few things that you get excited about. Just about any hobby or profession is a solid niche that you can get into. Some good examples might be photography, dogs, and outdoor sports.

If you decide to get into something like “outdoor sports” you may have to narrow the field a little more. Breaking this down into “extreme camping” or “kayaks and canoes” would be better. Then you can start doing some research on your specific topic and finding products to sell.

Remember that you aren’t confined to any one niche. You can get into as many as you like over time, but you should focus on them one at a time.

easy moneySet Up Your Webpage

Setting up a site of some sort is integral to making easy money online. People don’t like being directed straight to a sales page, so you should set up something like a blog in order to make them feel comfortable and like they can trust you.

Again, this is something that many people are intimidated by, but you can set up a blog for free and have it populated with keyword rich content in just a few days. If you can afford to get a domain name and hosting for your blog it is recommended since this will give you the greatest level of control over your site. But free blogs work well too, and can be an excellent starting point.

One of the only things you need to make sure of is that your domain name relates to your niche. So if you decided to become an affiliate for digital cameras, you would want something like “DigitalCameraFrenzy.com.” If you went with a free blog from somewhere like Blogger, you would get something like digitalcamerafrenzy.blogspot.com.

This is so search engines can find your blog easier, thus making it much easier for you to earn easy money. Also, it lets visitors know what your blog is about right away.

Don’t Overwhelm Yourself

One of the most common reasons why people fail at affiliate marketing is that they try to do too much at once. Someone may try to start too many blogs or push too many products, especially if they are unrelated, and spread their time and energy too thin. This will actually prevent them from making the kind of money that they could.

The beauty of using affiliate marketing to make easy money is that it is a simple process. When you try to overcomplicate it is when you start running into problems.

Start with one niche, and a few products within that niche at most. Set up your blog and start using methods such as article marketing to get visitors to it. Once you start seeing money from this blog and you are comfortable with running it, then you can move on to another niche or set of products. But there is no reason to be trying to make money from lots of different blogs right at first. You will only frustrate yourself.

Go Ahead and Make Easy Money on the Internet

There truly is no end to the niches and products that you could choose to affiliate for. You can make easy money while getting your interests and passions to work for you, which is a dream occupation for most people. There are many ways to make easy money, but becoming an affiliate is one of the simplest, quickest, and cheapest methods that you can choose.

The Easiest Ways To Make Money On The Internet

Ways To Make Money – Popular Methods

The internet is the single biggest marketplace in the world, but the really exciting thing is that it is still growing at a phenomenal rate. So, if you haven’t yet learned about all the ways to make money online, now is a great time to get started.

Nearly every business today, (even the conventional ones, and by that I mean the businesses that exist outside of the internet), now has their own website. But the singularly most exciting thing about the World Wide Web is that is has brought home to everyday folk the opportunity to start up their own online businesses from the comfort of their own home. So for the first time ever, single parents, housebound, disabled people and even people out of work and struggling to find new conventional employment, have a real opportunity to create an income stream by making money from an online enterprise.

Many people who have great ideas, great enthusiasm and a drive to succeed in the business world, but who didn’t, or don’t have the financial clout to get started, now have that golden opportunity too, and many are taking the bull by the horns. There are more online businesses making money from the internet than ever before. But remember what I said at the outset of this article? With the continuing explosion of internet growth, there is still a huge business void out there in cyberspace, just waiting to be filled.

Since its conception and launch to the big wide world, the internet has been a huge innovator of new ideas, not least of which in the ways that you can make money online. Whole brand new marketplaces and business models have been born; all with the same motivation in mind – the different ways to make money over the internet. So let’s just take a few seconds out to consider some of the ways you can go.

Some Common Ways To Make Money Online

First and foremost, let’s take a quick look at a standard web based business. If you want to sell any sort of product or service, the most effective way is by launching you own website. The great thing is that it’s now so very easy to do. Whereas once upon a time you had to know HTML and have good technical knowledge, now you can get a domain name, choose an existing website template, customize it with our own colors, fonts and logos, and get it hosted and launched, all for less than $20. You can include videos and video streaming, a shopping cart, and even take credit card or Paypal payments online too. It’s probably one of the most popular ways to make money online today.

For people who want to sell a product over the internet working from home, one of the biggest problems is space; storage space that is. No matter what the product is, it is likely to need quite a lot of storage space, especially in the quantity that an online business may demand. If you’re anything like most people, space is always at a premium at home. But the internet has innovated again and come up with something called drop-shipping. When you dropship, you have an arrangement with a specialist dropship service provider to buy your goods from them at great discounted rates. You get them to forward the goodies direct to your client, and you take the profit! No storage space needed. Drop-shipping is one of the best ways to make money online, and is catching on pretty fast.

But you don’t have to have a website to earn money out of the web. You can promote sales, and all you need is an email address. This is called affiliate marketing, and can be done with or without a website. Affiliate marketing is a fantastic way to create an income stream online. Why? Because you can do it from home; you can work as and when, and for as long as you want to; you don’t have to have a website; you don’t need any storage space, and you don’t have to finance stock. It works on a commission basis. This method is actually one of the most popular ways to make money since it is fast and “hands off” once you post the initial website, article, PPC or e-mail offer.

All you do is select a company, (or several), that you want to affiliate with, sign up (for free), and promote their products. There are many ways of promoting products, some more expensive than others, and some are even free. But the essence is that you guide potential buyers to your partner’s website, and each time they buy a product via your affiliate link, you get paid a commission. Simple as that! No wonder it is one of the most in demand ways of making money online.

Most successful manufacturers have an online presence, and an affiliate marketing network. If you think of some of the big High Street brand names, just visit their website and look for the affiliate marketing link. It’s free to join. You don’t need a CV, or any previous marketing experience; just online access and an email address. Commissions vary from supplier to supplier, but there is good money to be made, so do your research well before you commit. One small tip. Only try one product at a time. If you take on too many, (there is no limit), you might spread yourself too thin and not end up doing justice to any of them.

Freelancing – One of the Many Ways To Make Money Onlineways to make money

Another way of making money online is as a freelancer. Take article writing for example. Article writing is one of the best ways of promoting a product or service. In fact it is one of the tools of the affiliate marketer. The great thing about article marketing is that it is free; well as long as you write the articles yourself.

But many people either don’t have the knack or talent, or simply don’t have the time; so they outsource the writing of their articles to freelancers. They pay isn’t outstanding, but as a good freelance writer you’ll find it is one of the most reliable way to make money online, and it has the advantage of not needing any finance to get going, and not needing any storage space, as you never touch the product.

There are a number of websites that specialize in being a collecting hub for articles, and they employ freelancer writers to write for them. They are free to join, although you might have to take a writing test to show you can string a few words together grammatically correctly. If you want to be independent then you will need your own website. If you can promote your website effectively enough, then that route can be one of the most lucrative ways to make money.

Another of the ways to make money over the internet is by email marketing. Once again you can do this with or without a website, although a website, that customers can browse, will significantly improve your chances of converting interested punters into cash paying clients. The most important thing that you need for a successful email marketing campaign is a good list. The list we are talking about is a list of potential clients. There are two ways of getting a list.

The first way is to buy a mailing list. If you go online and carry out a search via your search engine for “email marketing lists”, you’ll be inundated with choice – there are hundreds to choose from. You can buy a list and then send your promotional emails out. Most of the list providers will also offer a complete email marketing package. They will offer to construct the emails for you, will provide a list, will initiate your campaign by sending the emails out for you, and they will even monitor the success of your campaign, offering to fine any future campaigns if you go forward with them as your service provider.

The best way of getting a list is to build one yourself, although this does unfortunately take time. First you need a website, and then a capture page whereby you ask visitors to log their contact details. The great thing about creating your list this way is that you know that the people on your list are all 100% interested in the products that you are selling. This is one of the ways to make money where there is no danger of being accused of spamming.

These are just a few of the ways to make money online. There are many more, and also many ways of marketing an existing business to increase your revenue even further. The sooner you get started, the sooner you can start growing your online income stream. So pick one of these ways to make money and get started today!

The Internet Marketing Advantage Review (IMA / IMAdvantage)

Introduction to the Internet Marketing Advantage

The Internet Marketing Advantage, or “IMA” for short, is a membership resource center provided by the internet marketing company Blueprint Information Products headed by veteran marketers Steven Clayton and Tim Godfrey. They are also the creators and producers of well-known affiliate marketing courses such as Commission Blueprint, Niche Blueprint, IMEye, Dropship Blueprint, and Blueprint Project Black Edition. They have a solid reputation and a large following of beginner to expert marketers who actively subscribe to and use their products. The IMA is the flagship product they offer and purports to provide every software tool, template and explanatory course to their subscribers that they use to generate over $10 million in revenue per year.

 

What is included in the IMA?

Once you log into the IMA website, you will be presented with Steve and Tim’s entire database of tools, training and resources to help you get started with your online business. The full courses they currently offer to subscribers are…

Full Courses Offered in the IMA:

  • Commission Blueprint Evolution – This is a brand new course devoted solely to affiliate marketing. Steve and Tim outline exactly what they do to make money selling other peoples’ products for commissions. The course provides step-by-step training on keyword research, competition analysis, choosing the right affiliate offer to promote, how to build a list, how to design a profitable affiliate website, and much more. And of course, this brand new course is free to IMA members.

 

  • Commission Blueprint 2.0 – This is the older version of the new “Evolution” course and contains worthwhile training and several profitable affiliate marketing templates and marketing software tools.

 

  • Niche Blueprint 2..0 – This course is a step-by-step guide to setting up your own ecommerce store online. Tim & Steve teamed up with ecommerce expert Dave Hermansen in developing this product and it was one of the best-selling marketing products of all time. The course includes everything from PDF guides to video tutorials. The course also includes an ecommerce shopping cart platform so all you have to do is register a domain and upload the software, and you will instantly have a fully functional store ready to be populated with products. This course utilizes the dropship method of sourcing products, and Steve & Tim provide a database of suppliers and products who will accept your orders and ship directly to YOUR customers. So… you accept payment from your customer and then turn around and order from the supplier only after you have been paid!

 

  • Dropship Blueprint – This database comes complimentary to IMA and Niche Blueprint 2.0 members. Simply enter a product you are interested in selling and the database returns contact information for suppliers willing to work with you. Dave Hermansen has personally reached out to these suppliers and secured them for IMA subscribers.

 

  • SEM Business Blueprint – This course is a step-by-step guide on how to start your local search engine marketing business. Steve leads the course with several video tutorials and PDF files that guide you every step of the way on how to find clients, reach out to clients, and how to close the deal. He even includes two fully operational website templates that you simply upload and advertise to your potential customers. He also included a radio commercial that you are free to use or modify as you wish! With the current going rates for local SEM, Steve advertises that acquiring ten local clients would equal $100,000 per year in profit from this business model alone.

 

  • Businesses In A Box Series – Several times per month, the Blueprint team add smaller businesses in a box to the IMA database. These include mini courses on mobile marketing, Facebook marketing, product launch techniques, etc.

 

Tools Available to IMA Subscribers:The Internet Marketing Advantage

  • Keyword Blueprint 2.0 – Keyword Blueprint 2.0 is a free keyword research tool developed by Steve & Tim, but IMA members get a special “PRO” version of this popular marketing tool. (Note: You can get Keyword Blueprint 2.0 Standard Edition for free by CLICKING HERE). The “PRO” edition differs from the free edition because Keyword Blueprint 2.0 PRO includes “Robot Mode” which basically allows the tool to perform keyword research on autopilot while you sleep. Simply input a seed keyword and select whether or not you want to find relevant “low” or “moderately” difficult competition terms, and the Pro version will run continuously analyzing batches of keywords that meet your criteria. Set it before you go to sleep and wake up the next morning with an entire list of relevant, viable target keywords!

 

  • Blog Blueprint – This tool is a competitor to services like BuildMyRank or Linkvana. Basically you load blog posts into the system and Blog Blueprint will automatically publish these posts (and your optimized backlink) to the IMA private network of high Google Pagerank blogs. Similar services charge $147/month for this feature so this is definitely one of the best perks of being an IMA member. This tool guarantees up to 20 blog posts per day for an unlimited number of websites… and best of all, you control the content and anchor text links!

 

  • Article Blueprint – This is an article distribution service offered as a part of your IMA membership. Simply load up an article (with spintax if you wish) and include up to two backlinks. Then schedule how many posts you would like to be distributed per day (10-50/day). The tool will then spin and distribute your article at the speed you specified to approximately 500 private article directories owned by the Blueprint team.

 

  • Link Blueprint – This is a link exchange service available to IMA members where you place other members’ links on your website to build credits in the system. When you earn enough credits, you can request that your link be placed on another member’s website. The great part about this tool is that you can specify the pagerank of the page you want your link to appear on, and only members with that pagerank page will be able to fulfill your link request. The tool is also designed to prevent reciprocal links, which provide less benefit.

 

  • Site Blueprint – This is a web based tool that acts as a HTML editor / WYSIWYG editor for the IMA affiliate marketing templates. You can edit any of their templates live on screen and then simply hit the “upload” button to send your changes directly to your hosting service.

 

  • HippoJaw – This is a web based tool that allows you to track visitors to your website and, more importantly, to optimize your Adwords campaigns. This tool is better understood by actually seeing it in action, but it works with the Google Adwords Editor to show you which of your campaigns are profitable, which ones could be improved, and which ones are a wash. Eliminate the campaigns that are costing you money to ensure you are maximizing profits.

 

  • Free Hosting – Steve & Tim offer free website hosting for an unlimited number of domains for all of their IMA subscribers.

 

Other Services Available in IMA:

Video Tutorials – Steve personally outlines exactly how to make money in a variety of ways in these mini-tutorials. These cover everything from Adsense to PPV to paid advertising to article marketing to Facebook marketing, etc. There are videos detailing how to maximize on-page SEO, how to properly build backlinks to optimize your off-page SEO efforts, and much more.

 

Conclusions…

I have been using the IMA for well over one year and feel that it delivers value for the price. The regular rate is $97/month but still saves me money that I would otherwise have to spend if I purchased their competitors’ tools individually. If you are on the fence, I recommend you click here to sign up for a $1 trial of IMA for 1 week. (The $1 goes to charity). If you think it might be for you then the best thing to do is try it out for a week, and if you do not like it, simply cancel.

Personally, though, I actively use and recommend this product.
