  2. If you have a new business or blog and don’t mind paying a few bucks extra to lock in a month-to-month web hosting plan, Hawk Host might be worth checking out. Not having to prepay for two or three years to get the best deal is a relief to many small business owners who want to mitigate risk. Beyond that, Hawk Host has a nice system ready for its users. The shared hosting interface is simple enough to understand, it offers an integrated website builder, there’s ample customer support, and VPS and semi-dedicated plans are also available. Keep reading to learn more about whether or not Hawk Host is the right choice for you. WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM HAWK HOST? Hawk Host primarily sells shared hosting, meaning you pay a monthly or yearly fee to share a portion of a server. This often causes slower speeds and less power compared to that of a VPS or dedicated server, but the majority of websites using shared hosting are small enough that they don’t experience ill effects. Every hosting plan from Hawk Host has free migration support. So if you have a website on another host switching shouldn’t be an issue. Each plan is optimized and ready to work on the CloudFlare content delivery network. This integration ensures that you don’t have any problems with the configuration and that you can simply activate the CDN from the convenience of the Hawk Host control panel. After that, you should start seeing better performance on all of your sites. Hawk Host also offers support for multiple content management systems including WordPress, Drupal, Magento, and Joomla. You receive a wide variety of system-specific tools, along with the convenience of one-click installation. As for support, you get a solid deal with technical support. Plus, there’s a 99.99% uptime guarantee. Some of other cool features packed in with all shared hosting plans include the following: At least 10,000 MB of space (goes up to unlimited) Unlimited bandwidth Unlimited domains Unlimited databases A free memcached server A free SSL certificate. What’s also interesting is that Hawk Host lets you choose the location of the server that your website is hosted on. So if you’re located in the Los Angeles area, selecting a local server means end users in that area can access your site a little quicker. GOOD PRICING To start, it’s worth pointing out that Hawk Host has a 30-day money back guarantee. This is particularly useful for those who signed up for a multi-year accoun since you can still get all of that money returned. As for the shared hosting plans, you can choose from the following feature sets: Unlimited bandwidth, databases and domains, 10,000 MB of space, and free migrations, SSL certificates, and memcached servers Unlimited bandwidth, databases and domains, unlimited space, and free migrations, SSL certificates, and memcached servers. As you can see, the only reason you would go for the higher tier is if you’re in need of unlimited space. This can come in handy for sites with higher amounts of traffic or with lots of media involved. VIEW HAWK HOST PLANS Keep in mind, however, that Hawk Host often offers a promotional price for yearly plans. Hawk Host also has a monthly option. OTHER EXPENSES TO THINK ABOUT Although the majority of additional expenses are completely optional, we want to explore what you have to choose from. Starting out, Hawk Host provides a domain name research and buying tool, meaning you can either transfer over a previously-owned domain name or find a brand new one. New domain names generally cost about $10 per year, but you could end up spending thousands of dollars if the domain name is already owned. In this case, it’s generally recommended to keep searching for suitable domains until you find one that’s reasonably priced. The free SSL is a huge benefit since many other hosting companies charge for that. When signing up for your account, you’ll be presented with a few upsells. It all depends on what you’d like for your website. These upsells include the following: An AlphaSSL certificate: this allows you to completely secure an e-commerce website, making customer payments secure and providing you with a badge to show that your website is safe. An additional 5 GB of space: you’ll have to pay a little extra for this. An additional 10 GB of space: same as the additional space plan above, but you’ll pay even more money per month. There’s no reason not to simply opt for a better plan. ID Protection: you can hide your personal information from people online. It’s not a huge deal to have your personal information attached to your website, but paying this extra fee will prevent spammers from locating your email address and sending you messages. EQUALLY AFFORDABLE VPS PRICING WITH EXTRA POWER A virtual private server (VPS) gives you more hosting power and control over the server you’re running the site on. It’s still a shared server, but you gain access to various features that you would only be able to get with a dedicated server without the hefty cost. For example, the VPS plans all have strong control panels along with support for operating systems like Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, and CentOS. Some packages you might encounter from the Hawk Host VPS include: Equal share CPU, 1024 MB of memory, an SSD powered environment, 30 GB of space, and 1500 GB of bandwidth Equal share CPU, 2048 MB of memory, an SSD powered environment, 40 GB of space, and 2000 GB of bandwidth Equal share CPU, 4096 MB of memory, an SSD powered environment, 50 GB of space, and 3000 GB of bandwidth. VPS plans have full root access for ultimate customization, and you do have the option to pay extra per month if you want a more powerful control panel for managing your server. SEMI-DEDICATED SERVER PRICING Although it’s not advertised that well on the Hawk Host website, the company does have a couple of plans for semi-dedicated hosting. This type of plan is in-between that of a VPS and a dedicated server. Essentially, it provides a server with fewer websites sharing it. It’s more expensive, but your performance levels improve. You’ll encounter some cool features from semi-dedicated server packages: 20 GB of space, 2 CPUs, and 2 GB of RAM Unlimited space, 2 CPUs, and 2 GB of RAM. WHAT’S THE HAWK HOST INTERFACE LIKE? As we discussed a bit above, the Hawk Host control panel is rather simple to manage for beginners. With it, you can create unlimited MySQL databases, and Hawk Host offers support for Perl, Python, Ruby on Rails, and PHP 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, and 7.1. Some of the other ways to customize and empower your website include SSH access, memcaching, and the LiteSpeed Web Server. After buying an initial domain, you can setup an unlimited number of add-on domains, parked domains, and subdomains. Domain redirects are also supported, making it easier to send people to the right place. The Weebly Professional Site Builder is included with every plan from Hawk Host. Although many users might not go with Weebly to build their sites, it’s at least nice to know that Hawk Host has partnered with a reputable, and easy-to-use, site builder. Weebly has some decent e-commerce support as well, so you can pair this with the free SSL to run a complete, secure e-commerce store. Hawk Host also provides unlimited email accounts and email forwarders, making it easy to configure your company’s emails. This is pretty standard with most hosting companies, but some of them limit the number of email accounts depending on your pricing plan. THE HISTORY OF HAWK HOST Hawk Host started in 2004 and was originally called Devoted Host. The company has always focused on reasonably priced shared hosting plans, along with additional services such as VPS, semi-dedicated, and reseller hosting. As a relatively young company, Hawk Host supports a little over 80,000 websites. About 15 people work for Hawk Host, most remotely. With hosting datacenters in places like Los Angeles, Dallas, Washington, Toronto, Amsterdam, Singapore, and Hong Kong, this is a young company with lots of potential due to its pricing and simplicity. IS THERE ANYTHING PARTICULARLY SPECIAL ABOUT HAWK HOST? Hawk Host emphasizes transparency and communication: information on critical issues is shared via its Twitter account and other customer service channels. They also boast of automation technology which automatically fixes common errors that occur in hosting. At the same time, they underscore an emphasis on 24/7 human monitoring of all of their systems. Simple and straightforward shared hosting plans set Hawk Host apart. Pricing is rather inexpensive, even if you opt for a VPS or semi-dedicated server. Plus, with the option to go month-to-month, Hawk Host gives smaller businesses the flexibility they crave by removing the need to commit to years-long plans from the outset. HAWK HOST SUPPORT Hawk Host customer support is available 24/7, 365 days a year. You can contact support through email or browse the discussion forums to troubleshoot on your own. Active social media accounts, a knowledgebase, forums, a help desk, and a server status page more than makeup for the lack of a direct phone number to call. Security is also a part of support. That’s why Hawk Host has everything from DDoS protection to file system protection to an external application firewall. It even has Daily R1Soft backups, keeping you at peace just in case your site goes down or loses any of its data. In short, you get an automated, seven-day rolling snapshot of your site. IS HAWK HOST THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOUR SMALL BUSINESS? This decision will ultimately come down to your business, your needs, and your budget. But generally, it’ll be a suitable choice if you have a small to medium-sized business, require low hosting costs, or need an affordable VPS. However, companies that require dedicated servers, phone support, or who expect high traffic volume should look elsewhere. While your situation may differ, the above guidelines should help steer you toward the right decision. And as always, good luck with your next web development project!
  3. DreamHost has been hosting websites since 1997 and currently houses over 1.5 million domains. It’s a privately owned company with a focus on privacy and customer support. The independent status of the company shows a dedication to the consumer that few other hosting providers have. Hosting plans are a little more expensive than the other best web hosting providers out there. However, the feature set, customer support, security and flexibility of plans make the price well worth it. Read on to see what makes DreamHost so special, or visit www.dreamhost.comand try out the service yourself; you won’t regret it. Strengths & Weaknesses The feature-set with each plan is impressive. Each feature shows that DreamHost is aggressively seeking business. In that scenario, the customer always wins. The first and most important feature is the 100 percent uptime guarantee. DreamHost claims it’s servers will always be live, and will compensate customers one day of service for each hour that the servers are down. Don’t let that confuse you, though. The servers will, and have, gone down. However, it’s a rare occurrence and DreamHost goes out of its way to make up for it. For those who don’t know much about building a website, DreamHost offers its Remixer website builder. These websites are hosted on shared servers and feature a drag-and-drop interface for building your site. It’s similar to how SquareSpace and Wix function. The Remixer builder has some extra features that make it a good starting point for those getting into website building. The All Access plan adds email and WordPress support, meaning you can grow your platform as you see fit. Registering a domain with DreamHost is simple as well. With 400+ domain extensions, you’re sure to find what you want. DreamHost will even give you a free year of registration. Across all of the servers, you will get free SSD storage. It’s more reliable and can double speeds. As opposed to a spinning disks, SSDs use flash storage, meaning that the drive doesn’t have to waste time searching the disk to find your information. Additionally, you get unlimited bandwidth and unlimited email addresses at your domain. Pricing 80% – Good There are a lot of with DreamHost. Each plan has a base price, with multiple sub plans underneath, as well as volume discounts. We’ll start with the most straightforward. The Remixer website builder comes in two flavors. The base plan runs for $7.95 per month and is useful for portfolios or personal blogs. Up a tier is the All Access plan that allows you to install WordPress on your domain and host it on a shared server. For WordPress on shared servers, that is the most inexpensive option. If you want to go with a different platform, shared hosting jumps to $10.95 per month. However, you can get a volume discount of $9.95 per month if billed annually and $7.95 per month if billed every three years. DreamPress stands out as the best option for hosting WordPress, though. You can read more on DreamPress in the server section below, but basically, these servers boost speeds on WordPress sites. Plans start at $19.95 per month, but volume discounts are available for annual billing. VPS, cloud and dedicated hosting must be configured. DreamHostgives a base rate for each of these plans, but the price you end up with is entirely defendant on your needs. Check out our web hosting overview to learn more about these prices. DreamHost is more expensive than services like A2 and GreenGeeks (check out our A2 hosting review and GreenGeeks review for more info). However, the extra cost is worth the design and fluidity of the service. It offers month-to-month plans unlike BlueHost , which is a huge plus for those who don’t want to make a multi-year commitment. Server Types Dreamhost has five different server types. From shared to dedicated hosting, DreamHost has just about everything, falling short only in what configurations those servers come in. The first, and most basic, are shared servers. Many domains from many users are hosted on these servers, hence the name “shared.” Shared servers are great for blogs, portfolios and sites that don’t intend to attract as much traffic as possible. Low traffic sites are pushed together on the same server for less money, but reduced performance. The downside to shared servers is speed, or rather lack of it. Shared servers will break under moderate traffic spikes (think a few hundred concurrent users) and page load times will usually sit around three to four seconds. Ideally, your page speed should be under a second or two. Shared servers start at $10.95/month, but still carry some premium features. DreamHost gives you a free domain for one year and one-click install for WordPress, Joomla and Zencart. DreamHost, WordPress, DreamPress Next are DreamHost’s managed WordPress servers. The service, aptly titled DreamPress, is tuned for WordPress. These servers are shared servers as well, but DreamHost claims they are over five times faster. There are a few reasons for this. Your website is divided among two virtual private servers, one for the front-end and one for MySQL. Essentially, your pages load faster with one server dealing with the user experience and the other dealing with your databases. Additionally, the service utilizes auto-scaling memory. DreamPress will automatically allocate more memory to your site depending on how much traffic is currently on there. Your site will continue to perform as well as it can, no matter what the load. Finally, DreamPress includes Jetpack Premium for free with each WordPress site. Jetpack is a first party WordPress plugin that protects you from attacks, backs up your site and gives you some analytics. Jetpack Premium will give you daily scans, as well as automated daily backup. DreamHost Virtual Private Servers Next are the virtual private servers. A VPS shares physical resources with another server, and gives developers more options when putting up a website. The most attractive part of a VPS is the scalability. DreamHost starts VPS plans with 1GB of RAM and 30GB of SSD storage. You can easily add more storage and memory up to 8GB of RAM and 240GB of SSD storage. If you want a server all to yourself, DreamHost offers dedicated hosting. You will be sharing your server with no one, giving you the best performance on your site. If your site intends to attract loads of traffic, then a dedicated server is for you. Page load times can get down to the golden one second load, and you have the option to tailor the specs of the server to fit the needs of your site. Each of the dedicated servers have RAID 1 storage. This is used for redundancy so, if a drive fails, you lose absolutely nothing. If you are investing the money into a dedicated server, it’s nice to have a physical backup in case something stops working. If you design websites, a dedicated server is great as well. You can resell that hosting to clients and make additional revenue, essentially setting up your own shared server. Since there are no limits on domains, this is ideal for a web design business. Last are DreamHost’s cloud servers. If you have a physical server that runs Linux, you can use cloud servers to boost performance without purchasing physical hardware. Cloud servers are an inexpensive way to up your specs, and DreamHost charges you only for the hours your server is turned on. Ease of Use From sign-up to hosting, DreamHost has one of the easiest processes out there. The website is well-designed, laid out thoughtfully and built to make using it simple. Hosting providers should have a wonderful looking website, and DreamHost seems to be the only one that understands that. Many hosting providers have websites that look and feel outdated. That’s not the case here. Each of the hosting plans is broken down with a simple feature list and pricing. You can find the specs of servers if you want to investigate further. By not throwing all the technical jargon in your face, DreamHost’s process is simpler, especially for non-techies. After you sign up, you can use the DreamHost control panel to manage your sites and account. The panel dashboard gives you the latest news, as well as notifications about your site. On the left side, there are navigation links to each other part of the control panel. The navigation felt intuitive. When I needed to find something, I knew where to look even with no instruction on where it was located. If you don’t want to poke around, DreamHost has a search box at the top on the dashboard, too. DreamHost Control Panel The control panel is where you’ll have access to installing platforms on your domain. DreamHost has 11 different one-click installers including WordPress, ZenCart and MediaWiki. Upgrading your hosting plan is done from the control panel as well. DreamHost has navigation tabs for each of its different types of servers. Under the tabs, you can immediately upgrade to a VPS, dedicated server or cloud server. From here, it’s simple to add users to your account, host extra domains and set up email addresses. DreamHost has managed to create a dashboard that gives both form and function so you focus less on the hosting and more on your website. Security DreamHost is locked down with security features to keep your website and your personal information safe. First, DreamHost has private domain registration. Your personal information is not tied to the domain. If someone were to gain access to registrant information for your domain, they’ll receive DreamHost’s proxy information and not your own. Along with every domain is a free SSL/TLS certificate. These certificates encrypt information while it’s traveling from the user to the host. Broadly speaking, you would have to pay for an SSL certificate from either your web hosting provider or a third party. With DreamHost, it’s completely free, renewing automatically every 90 days. SSL/TLS certificates are very important on websites today. Browsers like Chrome and Firefox will display a warning to users landing on a non-secured page. The warning tells users their information is at risk, guaranteeing deterred traffic. Every domain can be upgraded to include DreamHost’s malware removal tool for $3 per month. It acts like an antivirus for your website, with weekly scans and tools for quarantining and removing malicious software. DreamHost Cloudflare Rounding out DreamHost’s security features is free Cloudflare integration. Cloudflare is a cloud mitigation provider that uses upstream filtering to “clean” traffic coming to your site. In short, it protects your site from DDoS attacks, intentional or not (read more on what DDoS attacks are and how to protect yourself). Just recently, the U.S. Department of Justice received a warrant to investigate an anti-Trump website hosted on DreamHost servers. Instead of handing everything over, DreamHost showed up in court to fight against some of the requests made. While the warrant stands, some of the demands of records have been dialed back (read DreamHost’s full post here). DreamHost could have easily laid down to the claims and let the U.S. DOJ take what they wanted. The fact that DreamHost stood up shows a commitment to privacy and is a huge plus for us here at Cloudwards.net. Support DreamHost has some of the best support out there. For customers, there’s three ways to contact the support staff. You can request it via a classic ticketing system, 24/7 live chat or callback. The ticketing system works mostly how you’d expect. From your DreamHost panel, navigate to contact and click on submit a ticket. From there, choose the area of your issue and send your message. I received a response via email within 24 hours. For quick fixes, a live chat option is also great. The chat panel is accessible from the same area as the ticketing system. However, the chat staff generally can’t help with more complex issues. If you have a small problem, they’re great, but save big problems for ticketing. Instead of a call center, you can submit a callback request. The issue is that callbacks cost extra. You can pay $9.95 for a single use or $14.95/month for up to three uses. That cost gives you some extra perks, though. Calls are sent out within 36 hours of the request. You can specify an hour time-frame of when you receive your call, so the extra cost may be worth it depending on how severe your problem is. Solving Issues On Your Own You won’t need to contact DreamHost for every issue. Thankfully, there is a huge knowledge base for sorting out most problems. Everything from setup to troubleshooting is included, leaving support reserved for rare problems. DreamHost’s knowledgebase is, thankfully, easy to navigate. There are 20 categories, with 20+ articles in most of them. Each of them is written clearly, with screenshots and step-by-step instructions. Almost any issue can be solved here. In addition to the knowledge base, DreamHost has forums for asking questions. There are forums for general troubleshooting, web design and more. The community is alive and well too. At least one new thread is created every day in each of the forums, with some getting as many as 18,000 views. One of the most helpful parts of DreamHost’s support is the system status indicator. You can login and see what services are operational and what services, if any, are down. DreamHost updates this page in real-time as a service is being repaired. DreamHost’s support is great. The staff is helpful and quick to respond. Paid callbacks are a downer, but offer a lot of value for the cost. Still, the most impressive parts of support are the knowledge base and forums. The Verdict DreamHost is one of the best hosting providers out there. The platform is built with the consumer in mind with plenty of features and a excellent support. While plans are slightly more expensive than some providers, the cost is worth it with DreamHost’s attention to detail and 100 percent uptime guarantee. Have you tried DreamHost before? Let us know in the comments below and, as always, thanks for reading.
  4. We recently launched our built in 'Featured CashBlurbs' free tool, which can very easily TRIPLE the traffic to your offers, especially when you become an Unlimited member (below). Upon the release of the Featured CashBlurbs tool, I personally ran a 24 hour Case Study using my own 'CashBlurbs Unlimited Membership' account, to test it out... As usual, I began receiving traffic and clicks almost INSTANTLY. Only this time, it was considerably more than normal! ...And then, just 4 hours and 11 minutes into the test, I'd made an affiliate commission of $21 - on a Clicksure product called 'Easy FB Commissions'. Sweet!! CashBlurbs (which are simply short text ads placed on our site, and shared by our members on their Twitter and Facebook pages), take just a minute or two EACH to post. So I actually spent very little time in order to start getting traffic and affiliate commissions. Here's a screenshot of the test results from my Clicksure account: ...And here's a 2nd, separate 24 hour Case Study done a couple days later, where I received 127 clicks and another affiliate commission on a Clicksure product called 'Pin Your Income'... And here's yet another (3rd) Case Study where I made $79 after posting just 6 ads on CashBlurbs, each of which took only a minute or two to post as usual... You are 100% guaranteed to get traffic to your offers with CashBlurbs. Whether you make sales or not is not up to us... It's up to your offers! But with that said, we do everything we can to help. In fact, check this out... We've integrated a powerful built in incentive where if somebody buys one of your offers through one of your CashBlurb ads, we'll allow them to post a 180 x 150 size banner ad on our high traffic home page! ...We could very easily charge $200 for home page placement on a website with as much traffic as ours. But instead, we're giving away highly coveted banner advertising spots for your benefit. Think about it for a minute... People would have to be nuts to pass up an opportunity like this. No doubt some people are going to buy member offers they wouldn't have purchased otherwise, just to get their banner placed on CashBlurbs.com. And there you have it! Clearly, joining CashBlurbs.com is no brainer if there ever was one. Which means there's just one thing left to decide... Which member option are you going to GRAB below? ...With the free version, expect around 25 to 50 clicks per day if you use the service liberally. With the Unlimited version, expect to TRIPLE that amount. There are very few if any other traffic sources online, that can begin sending you traffic as quickly and as easily as CashBlurbs.com can. If you can handle spending a few minutes posting a few ads throughout the day, you will get traffic, plain and simple. You don't need a list. You don't need a website. You don't need experience. You don't need hosting. Just grab a hot affiliate product or splash page, and use CashBlurbs to start sending traffic to it NOW. There's no catch here. What you see is what you get, and what you see is also what you'll LOSE if you don't jump on this immediately... I know you're absolutely gonna love CashBlurbs! Get started NOW by entering your email address and creating a password in the box below, and then choosing an order option (free or Unlimited Membership). -Bryan Winters P.S. Do me a favor right after joining... Post an ad as quick as you possibly can, because I want you to see for yourself just how well this works. Don't put it off until tomorrow and then forget about it altogether. You'll be missing out - BIG TIME...
  5. Quick Summary of Operation $10K Rating: 2 It’s an overhyped and very basic affiliate marketing training program. The Good: The program’s buy-in price is just $19. There is a 60-day money back guarantee. You do get basic training in affiliate marketing. The Bad: The program has numerous upsells, which you’ll probably need to buy to become adept at affiliate marketing. The program overhypes how simple and easy it is to make lots of money with affiliate marketing. The videos and other training materials are very basic and won’t fully prepare you for selling your own affiliate products. The Bottom Line: While Operation $10K provides you with a decent start to affiliate marketing, you’ll soon need to purchase additional programs and/or upsells to make it as an affiliate marketer. There are more in-depth programs out there. Operation $10K Review Operation 10K, a program created by Desmond Ong & Matthew Neer, promises that you’ll make thousands of dollars each month by employing a simple four step plan. According to Desmond, who Matthew picks up at the airport in his red Ferrari, you don’t need technical or marketing skills to make money with Operation $10K. The only items you need are a computer and Internet connection. I am suspicious of work-at-home programs that showcase flashy cars and easy money; however, the program was priced at only $19, so I decided to try it out. Normally, Operation $10K is supposed to cost $47. On top of that, there was the program’s promised 60-day money-back guarantee. So, what did I find inside? Inside Operation $10K After my purchase went through, I was immediately redirected to… Upsell #1 Unlimited Super Affiliate Package Here, you get five ‘done-for-you’ campaigns that are noted as generating at least $100/day. This bonus was discounted from $197 to just $39. When I passed on it, I was directed to… Upsell #2 InstaSite Pro You get a ready-made website with its own traffic and product. This bonus is also discounted, from a whopping $297 to just $49. When I passed on this item, I was directed to… Upsell #3 Viral Pop Up Bar This upsell is actually a piece of software that you install onto your website. The software creates a pop-up bar that offers discounts to customers viewing your products. This item is priced at $17/month, but Matthew tells you that it will eventually cost $97/month. After I exited from this product, I was finally taken to the Clickbank page where I’d purchased my product. Here, I was able to download and view the Operation $10K product. What did I get with my purchase? In essence, the members’ area features 10 instructional videos. Video 1: Planting The Seed for Income Domination (7:01) In this video, you listen to Desmond as he pumps you up for affiliate and online marketing success. “Action creates success” and that kind of motivational stuff. Video 2: Understanding the System (7:31) Kier Chiu (at least I think that’s how it’s spelled), a marketing manager who works with Chromabit as a project manager, gives you an overview of how Operation $10K works. Kier notes that you’ll be working with buyer leads, not generic email lists. You’ll get these leads by selling cheap products ranging from $5-$10. This low price range will create buyers, which can then be upsold to more expensive products (ahem, much like how Operation $10K works). Video #3: The Covert Money Blueprint (13:39) Kier talks about overdelivering on the products you sell so that your audience feels like it’s getting a good value. You then hear about going to Clickbank to find products to sell as an affiliate. Finally, Kier discusses how you can squeeze as much money as possible from each product sale by promoting products with the highest affiliate commissions. Video #4: Identifying Your Cash Machine (8:58) You are instructed on how to select your product niche. Kier says that you should follow your passion when selecting your product. You should also choose a product you have some expertise in. Kier recommends finding a big niche so that you have a large audience to market to, and he also recommends validating your product idea by checking with a marketplace like Clickbank. Video #5: Value Creation (8:10) Product research is the focus of this video. Kier talks about doing competitor analysis to learn what works, and he recommends checking out websites including Clickbank, Udemy and Amazon for successful products. Video #6: Cash Cow Creation (7:42) You are told that you can create one of three products as your own personal product: an ebook, a video or a piece of software. Google Docs is introduced as a way to create your ebook, and Camtasia and YouTube are recommended as two tools for making videos. Software creation is not covered, even though software is noted as being the highest value item you can offer to customers. Bonus video- In-depth creation (13:57) Here, Kier goes into the details of using various online tools for generating your ebook. He suggests structuring your ebook by finding an example ebook on Amazon and essentially copying its structure and rewriting its text. He recommends finding popular subjects to write about by using Google search results to input keywords. Basically, you’re copying and pasting to create your own ebook. Another topic that’s covered is how to use Google Slides to generate your own video on Camtasia. Video #7: Making It Work (9:12) Other methods for product creation are discussed, including the following: Interview an expert and create a product based on that person’s expertise. Outsource your product to cheap overseas workers. Video #8: Money Magnet Asset Generation (9:16) The sales funnel is introduced and several online tools are recommended for building landing (i.e., sales) pages that convert potential buyers. How do you create a great landing page? Kier recommends just going to your competitors’ pages and copying their design and strategy. Bonus Video- The Magic Bullet (3:31) An example sales page is built for you in this video, with the example niche being physical fitness. Video #9: Tying Everything Together (3:27) Different platforms are introduced for marketing your product, including Clickbank, Warrior Plus and Cash Network. Video #10: Leveraging Top Marketers (7:32) Here, you are told to find top marketers who can offer your product(s) to their audience. How do you find these top marketers? Kier locates products being sold on Clickbank and searches on their reviews. He notes that most of the reviews are being written by top product affiliates who you can also contact about promoting your own similar products. Bonus Video: Forbidden Traffic Method (4:17) Desmond presents a method for leeching traffic from a high profile website by posting content to it in the form of a guest blog. First, you check the traffic level that a particular website is getting, and then you check Alexa for its rank (100K or below is ideal). Once you have a good candidate, you write the website’s owner about becoming a guest blogger. Other secret traffic methods are also provided, including the Trojan Horse Traffic Method, the Spike Method, and the Timeline Method. Two additional bonuses With Operation $10K, you also get two WordPress apps that install as plugins. They include the following: Bonus #1: FB Profits App Bonus #2: Media Spark App You also get a final bonus called Fast Track Affiliate Marketing Power, which is a Facebook traffic course. Operation $10K isn’t a scam but… This program offers a lot of good introductory material for creating your own affiliate product and selling it through online marketplaces like Clickbank. However, it takes a lot more than a 3-5 minute video to go over some of the more detailed concepts of product creation and marketing. For example, there should have been a series of videos dedicated to the concept of sales page creation. Instead, you receive only one short video and a few templates. Ebook creation is covered fairly well in one of the videos, but video and software production are glossed over. This is unfortunate because software is even noted as being a more lucrative consumer product. There is also the pointless hype around Operation $10K. Why Matthew and Desmond introduce this product with flashy cars, screen shots of bank accounts, and parties in Las Vegas is beyond me. Matthew claims that this system somehow beats other competing affiliate marketing training systems…but I fail to see how. The information presented here is good, but it’s not revolutionary. In the end, you’ll still be doing a lot of work to create and market your affiliate product(s). Finally, while the Operation $10K product costs just $19, its upsells will cost you nearly $388 if you keep this program for a year.
