Here we go! Another one of those flashy videos where the guy promoting his program and flashing all of his toys and luxury items. I stumbled on this program while trying to find a product to promote on ClickBank. Their claim was undeniably very attractive, so I had to check it out for myself. I got sent to a sales page.
Here is my analysis
Program Name: The Super Affiliate System. However, the program that they sell is The Internet Jetset Online program
Owner: Pendragon Labs LLC, 2017 – John Crestani
Price: $47 now and is it $47 per month or $97 per month? It depends on where you look:
As soon as I saw the ClickBank secure checkout page and the monthly price that I circled was not $47, I started to be a little skeptical.
Is the John Crestani’s program really worth it or is it a rip-off?
If you are like me, you have seen these videos all over YouTube and even Facebook. He advertises his webinar on how to make money online and live the laptop life.
Since I am very interested in the laptop lifestyle, I was very curious about what I could learn from his program and I decided to take his webinar and find out for myself even though I had found a lot of mixed reviews about him and his program.
To make this a long story short, after going through his webinar, which is an hour and a half long, he goes through the basics of affiliate marketing using Amazon.
Does he over promise? Well yes. On the advertising page of the webinar itself there is this claim that “If you can spare 60 minutes a day, you can earn as much as $50,000 per month”. Hmmm, probably possible if you are a very advanced Affiliate Marketer and that you have a TON of traffic to your website(s).
He is a very good salesman, I cannot argue that fact. He does make a lot of statements during his webinar that makes a lot of sense, and are truthful.
He talks about how he struggled before he made it “to the other side”. From rags in 2011 to $3.9 million in 2016. And he also shows some of his students that have also made it big. And it all looks legit.
One thing that caught my attention is when he said “the easiest thing I ever did was to make $1,000,000. The hardest thing I ever did is believed I could do it”.
During the webinar he gives out the actual basics of Affiliate Marketing by going through 3 modules:
Select a niche, use a marketing system to generate visitors and create a Funnel to convert visitors into sales.
He recommends going with Amazon, by looking up what product has a high search volume. He recommends we should have a product that has at least 5000 searches a month.
This is where I got disappointed. He says that out of those 5000 searches, you should get approximately 33% of them to visit your site and click on your “link” – HOW??? How do you get all of those clicks to your website???
He doesn’t say, he goes on to another step of his step by step process.
The rest of the process is making a video and do a review of the product and again 15% (out of the air apparently) will click on your YouTube video.
He says to always promote an item that makes at least $40-$50 commission per product. With Amazon’s commission rate that’s at least a $1,000 product! (Forget about promoting small stuff)
Then, with his calculation, he calculates from the original 5000 searches, that you end up with 240 clicks on your link with a 20% conversion, which makes $2,400/month for 1 product review???
Remember when I said he oversells?
I guess it’s all possible, but HOW do you get the traffic??? I would say if you are an authority in your niche and have a lot of traffic already to your website, but not someone who is just starting!
Then, about half-way through the webinar, the sales pitch comes in to promote his $47 now and $47/month course called Internet Jetset Online program.
There is a “free traffic machine” in there. That is probably where his “miracle” happens.
Is there any upsells? Definitely. And it is very much oversold!
So, what is the Internet Jetset program?
It’s a basic 12 weeks step-by-step Affiliate Marketing course.
There is over 50 hours of video training and is divided into 12 different modules. Its main goal is to train the “newbie” of Affiliate marketing, and it does a good job doing so. The course will take you through all the required steps of building an affiliate marketing business.
- Basics of Affiliate marketing
- Choosing your Niche
- Tools and Software to use
- Landing Pages
- Facebook ads
- Google Adwords
- Advanced Facebook Ads
- Overcoming Failure
- Copywriting techniques
- Scaling your campaigns
So as you can see, for someone just starting Affiliate Marketing, the course is pretty complete to get you started.
You also get access to an Active community of like-minded people doing the same thing.
Monthly Live webinars
There are other courses in the upsell that costs $187, but I did not get into them.
Is it a scam?
From my analysis and from what I have seen here, this program is NOT a scam. It is legit and has some value for the beginner Affiliate Marketer.
However, like most programs I have analyzed, the traffic part is fuzzy! If you don’t have any traffic to your website, you have no potential customers, therefore no sales.
Pros and Cons
For the beginner in affiliate marketing, the courses are well-made and are easy to follow.
He does mention the important part, that this is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme and anyone who tries their hand at affiliate marketing has to put in the effort and work to be successful.
Pre-built templates for ads and landing pages
John Crestani has really made well for himself and has been featured in magazines such as Forbes and Business Insider. He has experience and knows his stuff.
Solid money back guarantee
Oversold – Especially the webinar. Although his claims may be feasible, it is NOT the average amount of money a beginner can make doing Affiliate Marketing and is used to lure the beginner into the program.
Confusion in prices per month. Even though the webinar says that it is $47 per month after the initial $47 when we look at the fine prints of the payment page we see that the price per month is $97 per month??
Not for the advanced Affiliate Marketer
Even though this is a legit program, I am not convinced that it is the best way to start an Affiliate Marketing business.
My verdict is:
I don’t recommend it
Because I know a better and way cheaper (It’s actually FREE) way to get just as much training and even more, and also guidance to start an Affiliate Marketing business.
