Campaign Blasts (aff) is a how to make money with affiliate marketing, mainly using Adwords.
The ebook, written by Matt Levenhagen, was talked about on another blog I like so I thought I would take a look.
First thing, todays date is shown as if the sales letter was written on the very day you read it. Sigh! Is there anyone out there who actually thinks that. To me it’s an instant turn off and although I am an affiliate marketing virgin I have been Online marketing since 1998, so I may be a bit jaded as know that the reason the days date is shown is because of a little script. And I bet most people know as well.
It’s a little thing, but do we really gain anything from insulting the inteligence of our readers.
OK rant over.
I didn’t feel very excited whilst reading the news letter, I don’t know if Matt wrote it or paid 5 grand to some expert copywriter, but it doesn’t grab me by the cahonas like a good sales letter should.
Not sure who the ebook is aimed at, as it teaches you how to register a domain. Are there really people out there considering starting an adwords/clickbank business who do not know how to register a domain.
Perhaps quite a few, but I doubt it.
It may be that the product suffers from a poorly written sales letter. At first I was quite pleased there wasn’t the usual 18pt bright read headlines with quotes around them, screaming at me to pay attention or they will come round to your house one night and wake you with a large, dead trout. But found myself not grabbed by unquenching irrationality to purchase said product.
Nor was there the relentless bullet point lists of the benefits and advantages of the ebook. The ones that plug straight into the primeval savage part of me bypassing thousands of years of civilisation and rational thought.
No, the product is probably good. It’s the sales letter that does not do it for me.
Well Matt, if you are reading this and want me to review the ebook you will have to send me a copy as I’m just not juiced up enough to reach into my back pocket and hold that cold plastic credit card in my hand, and punch in those numbers.
But that’s just me.
