|Google Sniper Scam or Not?|
I get to know this so called Google sniper when I got an email from my co author here, +juan delacruz who is involved in Internet Marketing. He made a couple of post in this blog long time ago and have not heard from him quite some time now until I got his email last Wednesday. He ask me if I could help him promote this product called Google sniper. I immediately replied, "are you serious? knowing me, do you actually think I will promote products like that?". Reacting a bit violently he then explained to me that he was just trying, he was expecting that response from me. He also wants me to be aware of it as it is becoming popular fast and sooner or later it will come to the Philippines, get my attention and I will write about it. He knows how I write reviews but according to him he find my writings as "Fact based". He is confident I will not bash anything if there is no concrete reason to do so. But still, even with his flattery I will never "Promote" any type of money making schemes.
The best that I could do for him is to be fair and completely honest of my writing. In addition to that, I also agree to use his affiliate links. I would assume he will get some sort of credits if you click on it or probably he will get a small amount of commission if you purchase the product using his link. I am happy to do that favor because he did a fantastic job of keeping the whole blog free of spam comments. And I feel letting him advertise on the banners is not enough. Additionally, its not one those recruiting schemes that I totally detest. The worst thing that could happen is you bought a crappy product and that's it. What you are risking is just your own money not involving others.
To be honest I don't know how to write a proper formal review. I am not a writer, I am just somebody who knows a bit of English and wants to share something.. lolz
Furthermore, Aside from Internet marketing schemes is not my forte, I have not personally tried it to speak of my own experience but fortunately in this digital age, information is instantly available online. :)
What I will be doing is just answer in my own thoughts the questions that you will most likely be asking based on the facts I gathered.
What is Google Sniper?The first time I watched google sniper's sales video, I mistakenly think of it as some kind of a magic tool, software or a system that exploits loopholes of search engines to get you on top very fast and easily. Its what they might want you to think, but just like most sales video, its not what it seems. Its basically just a course about internet marketing. Its made up of PDF files and training videos. Nothing extra special.
Who made it?
How does it work?Obviously it a training, it will teach you something. Its a combination of videos and PDF files teaching you three main principles.
First, it will teach you how to find a good profitable niche that is perfect for you. They help you pick a product to to promote via Clickbank. An online market place of digital information products to sell and be affiliated for a commission.
Second, research the best possible keywords for your niche and create small websites around it called sniper sites and monetize it.
Thirdly, rank those websites highly in search engines and drive as much traffic to it as possible then tweak your sites for maximum traffic to sales conversion.
How much does it cost?The question most salespeople cringe.. lol
I find it confusing because they have different price plans but from how I understand it. The first option is an offer of $1 for 5days trial then a $67 monthly recurring charge. The second choice is the one time fee of $47 that has a monthly recurring charge of $47. These charges are said to be refundable with in 60 days.
To be honest I don't see the sense why it has those different rate plans. If I were to join, I would get the $1 trial. Access and download everything and will not be paying the recurring charge or ask for a refund after.
So, is google sniper a scam or not?To answer it directly its both. I like to split it into two and clarify myself.
- The product or training is NOT A SCAM. google sniper has a value and proven to be effective. There are real people who are successful to confirm it works.
- The way they promote/advertise is A SCAM. I don't know what is your definition of a scam, but for me, if lies and deceit are present to get something from you its a enough for me to consider it as such.
A very obvious deception I notice, is how they hype google sniper as a miracle product that instantly gives you money so fast and easy almost without doing or knowing anything. That projection is totally UNTRUE!!
I know my way would be very unpopular at first but soon people will realize this is the truth and the only way to their dream income online. When that happens, we can't help it to be famous. Whats happening with their advertising style now is the opposite. Misleading sales materials leads to quick sales and get viral attention but results in very bad reputation due to the growing number disappointed customers feeling cheated. It makes google sniper more and more despised.
My own opinionI have not personally tried Google Sniper so this is just my own theoretical logic on the topic based on the facts gathered.
First of all I find it overpriced, specially the recurring charges. They try and justify it with the overhead cost, but it will then be contradicting to their huge claimed income. So, are they really struggling or just want to make more money? For me, they just want to make more!
Google sniper is built with the newbies in mind, they make it sound so easy that anyone with half a brain can do it so well blindfolded. Totally false!! The truth is you have to manage websites as many as you can. Before that even happens you have to be at least acquainted about keywords, domain names and hosting. You need to learn to use control panel in your hosting and at least wordpress program to create those website minus the coding. And the hardest part of all is SEO(search engine optimization). You need to master it to get those website on top of search results. Just imagine if you picked a popular niche with lots of competition. You will be going against many and most likely web developers who are already expert in SEO. Minor HTML or CSS coding knowledge is also needed to tweak those websites for maximum results.
Another fallacy they appear to be is that they are some kind of an autopilot program wherein once you set up everything, all you have to do is sit back and watch the money flowing in. Another terrible Lie! Setting up those website is just the start of the Calvary you have to go through SEO is a constant struggle. Specially when your starting out. You have no authority, search engines and even netizens wont believe a thing you say.
Do you recommend that we will give it a try?More of a yes with conditions! Now that you've been warned I imagine you are ready to in there and get pitched. Always remember, no matter how sweet they talk don,t believe everything.
- Website creation and management is not totally new to you or if you're a novice you have the desire and passion to learn
- You are fully aware that it is not easy money.. Again IT IS NOT EASY.. hard work, dedication and consistency is the only way.
- You can afford to risk an amount of money. It can be an investment for your future if you take this seriously.
