Welcome to the Mad Web Scientist!

My notes on "Auto Mass Traffic Rant – Don’t Buy This Garbage" video:

  • Maybe Ryan Deiss missed this one (I’m wondering if he employs someone to research & run promotions or something..), but the reviewer above slates AutoMass Traffic pretty thoroughly
  • The product seems unfinished, and has 5 upsells, which is where most of the affiliates’ money will be made (not on the front-end $37 product)
  • If you have a mailing list, be very, very careful what you promote – review the sales copy properly before you bash your list. REMEMBER: the relationship you have with your list, and the value that you give them, will largely reflect how much income you can expect to gain, so it’s paramount that you maintain your integrity and respect the people who’ve volunteered their contact details to you (this is a challenge for all internet marketers, including myself)
  • If the sales copy seems hypey, or the numbers don’t seem to add up, then it’s probably best to avoid buying
  • Any REAL online business will require capital outlay, time, consistent and focused effort. You won’t get money pouring into your wallet simply by "configuring, activating and then clicking on your mouse button".

So, what’s the difference between good copywriting, hype and downright lies?

 

Good sales copy inspires,

But hype churns your stomach.

Good sales copy motivates,

But hype only arouses suspicion.

Good sales copy brings clarity of decision,

But hype only brings derision.

And what about downright lies?

They create apathy and anger,

And only the lawyers get rich.

(The last bit isn’t meant to slate lawyers by the way – they are a necessity…I’m just pointing out that in the online world, they are ultimately the only group who stand to gain out of the shenanigans that threatens to shut down the genuine incredible opportunities that are currently available).
