Super Affiliate Internet Marketing

Dummy Duped By Super Affiliate Internet Marketing

super affiliate internet marketing

I just got ‘duped’ into buying a junk product from the internet. Its those sort of products which is targetted for bloggers, especially the newbie and intermediate ones. The cash out however was small since it happens to be one of those dime sale sort of marketing. But that exactly is one advantage wily marketers have in dime sales. We, victimized buyers, tend to just shrug it out, even if we feel we were duped, because we say “we’ll, it’s just a dollar and 10 cents anyway”. We don’t waste our time raising a complaint to paypal asking for a $1.10 refund. Thus the marketer gets away with your $1.10. Multiply that with 10,000 duped buyers. Don’t you just envy this super affiliate internet marketing expert?

Actually, I was more interested in the bonus that came with the product. And thus I learned never to trust a product that is thrown in as a bonus. The bonus was a tutorial on maximizing Adsense earnings with ‘secret’, ‘never before revealed’ tricks. The sales page was so persuasive, I’ve got to study it and see if I can make one myself so I, too, (in some vague future time) can make a buck out of an intricate play with words and formatting alone. This is not the first time I bought products from marketers and thus I can safely say that most, if not all, bonuses are generally worthless junk. Most information you get there are something you know already, or can be freely found in the internet. The bonus’ product by the way is an ebook (with short videos) that contain old information and was probably produced way before I was born. Imagine yourself being advised to place images right beside your adsense block to increase click rate! A newbie could fall for this and get himself banned.

And the actual product? A set of ready made site materials (complete with several articles) needing only to be uploaded to your site. And the niche? A niche with several hundred thousand monthly searches! Your chances against the competition? You have a 98% chance of getting on Google’s first page! That is, if you started doing SEO work for this niche, say, 67 years ago. Oh, ok, 38 years ago will do too.

Like I said, I was really interested only in the bonus. I knew the main product was crap, but I didn’t count on finding the bonus to be even worse.

Again, I think the marketing method was magnificient. I usually google first to check for reviews and complaints against any product before making a final decision to buy or not. But the sales page must have employed some ninja-jedi mind trick of invoking a sense of urgency into the buyer’s mind. Of course, no one can resist anything priced at just $1.10 and which will increase (incrementally) many-fold if you dilly-dally, or decide to buy tomorrow. Darn, I fell for it I must learn this trick. I call this super affilitate internet marketing.

So far, I’ve already marked 3 marketers as “Crap Marketers”. The only reason I haven’t blacklisted them and unsubscribed from their list is because I’m studying their tactics and methods. Hopefully, when the time comes, when I take the plunge into internet marketing, I’ll not turn into one of them and thus also have to mark myself as a ‘Crap Marketer’ and blacklist myself.


  1. Affiliate marketing is always tricky because of the sheer amount of scammers. I always find that in the long term you can only sell to people who trust you,and you can only gain trust by supporting quality products. I only affiliate to BlueHost, Thesis, and Amazon and I have used all three extensively to feel comfortable in supporting their product. Thanks for the great post

    1. I hope all folks who aim to become marketers share the same policy as yours Brian. We don’t need any more scammers to the already overflowing numbers existing now, do we?.

      I too market products from Amazon. I don’t really earn awesomely but I appreciate what comes in my way out of my humble efforts.

      1. There’s no question that the world would be a better place without scammers and theives, just yesterday I saw that someone had taken my most recent post and pretty much copied and pasted it onto his site.

        I think in the end you just have to trust that karma will work things out the way they are supposed to be. It’s good to find another marketer with quality morals.
        Brian@Charleston Marketing´s latest blog post ..FeedBurner is Stealing Your CommentLuv Backlinks

        1. I checked the culprit’s page and indeed there’s no doubt that the guy’s been lurking at your door and pounced on your article about Google/Feedburner stealing commentluv backlinks and promptly tweaked it for his purposes (he published it same day). I think he’s not even very good at re-writing.

          Well, fairness will reign, and like you said, the law of karma will take care of that.

  2. I think the real cost of these junk products is the time they take from you. Forget the $1.1 – the time it took you to go through their marketing page, think about whether or not to buy that, then buy and read their junk – that cost you a lot and guess what, it’s non-refundable!

    Well, at least you made a blog post out of it 😉
    Anne´s latest blog post ..The Problem with My Summer Hiatus

    1. Hi Anne, thanks for taking the time to comment. On looking back, yeah I suppose, it’s actually my time that I lost most from that experience. But inasmuch as I was able to come up with a post out of it, I might say I actually gained something from it. Anyway, I’m beginning to get interested in listbuilding, so I think I ought to find that sales page again and see the fine points of persuasion that they used to entice me. Maybe I’ll learn some tricks from it too.

  3. It just goes to show that content is king. If someone takes their time and creates a unique product that will actually help people they will reap the benefits as long as they have a following.

    Rather than those crap products out there that trick you with a get rich quick scheme.

  4. I think at one point I was the Clickbank Queen. Bought so many products that promised the world and produced nothing!!! Just glad there were refund policies so I didn’t lose too much money. The quickest I requested a refund was 30 minutes after buying some so-called teaching videos on internet marketing that would not load! After that I was cured. I stick to learning from trusted bloggers and there is so much free information out there that I don’t need to waste my time and money on these scammers. So much regurgitated garbage being sold to unsuspecting newbies it’s sad. I have truly learned my lesson.

    1. Hi Eli,

      I suppose it’s safe enough to assume that anyone who has at least at one time been serious in finding ways to earn online has indeed been duped. 🙂

      Thanks Eli.
