Massive Passive Profits

by 212 replies
I've get an email from Bill McRea promoting his Massive Passive Profit product.

I know Bill from other products and they are OK (not huge ground breaking) but at least deliver.

As usual the sales letter is hyped up to attract the non educated lazy wealth seekers, it push the right mind buttons and promises a huge traffic increasing on your sites. As a traffic generation system I'm interest in review it (I'm still in the quest for the holy grial of free traffic generation software)

Anyway I'll check it out and will post my impressions. What I like so far its that the price is $47 and hasn't exit popups and is just one upsell of $197, and is managed by clickbank (easier to refund in case of emergency).

    I bought it, and checked out some videos. There seems to be a lot of moving parts to it. I tried logging into it later in the day and website is now gone! I can't even login. Kinda sucks when you just spent some good money and can't even see the product you bought.

      That's a shame-please keep us updated-hopefully the site is down due to a temporary glitch.

      It sounds like the software might be a cool tool, so I hope they can resolve it. I've got the video on their sales page playing now, and can't even pause it-I hate that, but if that makes more sales for them, I can't fault them for it. I'd do it too.

    Update:

    I finally have access to this Massive Passive Profits. I've read that they have some serious issues with the server.

    What is all about?

    Is a software or more like a plugin, that create a MU wordpress blog, and have the capability to create MU autoblogs fetching content from articlebase, eza, amazon and youtube videos for a given keyword (very similar to wp robot).

    Is actually pretty easy to create blogs that way and with the Mass Deploy you can upload a CVS file with 100's of blogs to create (this is actually awesome).

    However, it requires a little bit more than that to make it work, like a good theme (not included) and other plugins (not included) to help you rank better and get some traffic.

    Yet again as autoblogs is a matter of numbers, the fact to build as many sites as you want in a matter of minutes make this MPP worthed.

    The downside is that you'll probably need a dedicated server hosting that will certainly cut your profits. And you need a little bit more work in order to set the right sites, with the right theme, and the right monetization method, and keep an eye on them (if you set once and forget them... forget about make money too).

    Traffic comes mainly by SEO, and backlinking using some paid plugins.

    But if you have some experience you can take one bit from here, another from there, and set a pretty decent income source... yet this is not explained in the 'training' in extensive.

    I get why this might not be somebodies cup of tea but I certainly wouldn't put it as a scam. Why the method of 100 blogs might not be what you consider as doable business model, there are plenty of people who make a nice living at it.

    I think with a little work on a persons part and depending on if you can place off of these blogs under one install of MU or not, it might not be that big of a chore to get 100 blogs going and optimized. Just my two cents.

      I used this MU wordpress blog system a while ago, yet it was still some time consuming creating each blog, but with the upgraded plugin you can upload a cvs file with all the information needed to create a blog and with the campaigns set up, ready to go.

      The interesting part is if you can build 5 to 10 MU blogs a day with the basic program, with the cvs uploader you can build literally 100 a day. And as this is a numbers game.

      You will need a better hosting plan than the hostgator baby croc though.

      Now, personally this is not the model I wish to follow I'm an old fashion guy and still fond to the hard work long term business model.

      Anyway I handle the license to my brother with some extra instructions and if my lazy bro can't bank at least 1k a month with this system before year's end I'll start to seriously doubt of his synapses process.

      Here's a tip. Use the payment link at the top of the first page. It's for $200 or so ad gives you everything. The link at the bottom is for $50, but it's just for the tool to create the blogs manually.

      That's nice, but you really want to be able to do it from a spreadsheet.

    • This thing is an autoblogging dream. You can build them in a spreadsheet, upload and walk away.
    • It will automatically setup unlimited subdomains (e.g. blog1.dumblogger.net, blog2.dumblogger.net, etc)
    • They accidentally provided the source code to all of the initial purchasers so you can easily prevent E.T from phoning home and telling his parents where and how you are using the plugin

    CONS
    • It cannot create additional domains (only subdomains). So you have to create a separate Wordpress install if you want to do that.
    • They recommend that you use a dedicated server. More money.
    • To get traffic you need to install at least 2 other plugins (WP Syndicator and Web Traffic Genius Pro). They recommend a bunch, but you don't need them all. I use the two that I do, because I already know to use them.
    • One of the plugins they recommend is Blogpress SEO. Hey wait, isn't that a Wordpress Trojan? Either these gurus are to stoopid to know about it or they own it and want to secretly control the blogs of everyone who installs it.
    • They released an update which supposedly fixed a registration issue. When actually, it's an ioncube encoded version of the same software. I think I'll keep the source

    I've already made some edits to help me do some cool stuff with my autoblogs and my themes.

      Thanks for the brief and clear review.
      Are you still at it ? How are you doing ?
      I was interested too, I already have recommended traffic plugins, have some others in mind that can do well too...
      If compared with all the junk 'magic buttons' selling over last 6-8 months, this system seems to me as better deal as more time passes on.

      Your reply would be much appreciated

    There are two cool features that this thing has that may be worth to mention, that in my humble opinion the more I use the more I like.

    the first is the use of the cvs file to load the blogs, is just simply too freaking easy to build a blog that way, you only ned to set up one blog as a template and the rest will be build using the same pattern (plugins, themes, pages includes)

    The second is... wait... no... actually there is only one thing.

    *********
    Now... How do I use massive passive profits if I wish to stick to that short term business model?

    Adding market samurai, bookmarking demon and some other sindication plugins.

    find a niche, fetch a good list of keywords, get a domain, create your first blog, and then use your keyword list as subdomains of your autoblogs. The more the merrier. Bookmark, sindicate, index and forget.

    Find another niche, and repeat. The time to invest on each site is about an hour taking on account the keyword research (about 20 minutes) the initial setup of your template blog takes you about 20 minutes with all the plugins, another 10 to fill the spreadsheet with your blogs data and 10 minutes to upload the 100 blogs.

    If you put your head and heart on this task you can build easily 5 niche domains blogs with 100 subdomain blogs in a matter of 5 hours work. All fully loaded with adsense and clickbank hop ads and amazon products.

    So theorically we are talking about 500 blogs a day 2.500 a week and 10000 blogs a month if each of them gives you just $0.1 a day you do the math.

    The cost?
    Hostgator dedicated server hosting $ 174 /month
    Godaddy .com domain names $11.99 x 100 = $1199 / year
    Market Samurai $ 149 /one time payment
    Massive Passive Profit w/mass deploy $ 244
    Total Investment $1766

    10000 blogs at $0.1 day x 30 days $30000 / month

    But... you know how numbers are... they paint you a dreamed scenario and sometimes they simply lie... but it will be awesome to get that passive income for 1 month work... if only this works that way right?

      Neodarth, I did the math. You were off by a decimal point!

      10,000 blogs at $0.1 day x 30 days = $3,000 / month

      Like others here have mentioned, would be concerned about footprint and indexing (ranking these would be a long shot, IMHO)

      I also heard that a good practice is to wait a month or two before adding your ads, so Google doesn't ignore/dismiss the site immediately.

      Does this plugin clone an entire WP setup with additional plugins you may want to add?

    Yes, it takes some work, but the work of building the blogs is gone. This leaves plenty of time to use Market Samauri, Google Insight, and SEO Elite.

    I mean, yeah, I wish there were more data sources and more configurability... but hey, with the source I can always add more content sources.

    This thing really works.

    Also, IP diversity is a good thing. You don't want 10k blogs on the same ole IP addy. They actually mentioned some of that in one of the videos (buy very briefly). And the bottom line is IP addresses cost money. I personally plan to setup 50-100 blogs per IP.

    Sure there are some cons, but I've never seen a way to build blogs so easily. The next version will not doubt be even richer. Don't play games. Buy it now. But yes, there are CONS to it... and everything else in this world.

      I guess what I mean to say is that if you're new to IM, purchasing it will be risky. You can learn as you go, but you'll be going nowhere fast.

      If you are experienced (even intermediate experience), you will have no problem making your money back.

      What about the normal autoblogging pitfalls, like the Duplicate Content Penalty? Will google slap the whole domain once it finds a common footprint with all of the autoblogs?

    It is an interesting concept, but it requires a serious investment, that currently I cannot afford.

    I would like to test the system on a smaller scale by choosing a niche, selecting the leywords and building 10 or so subdomain blogs.

    This would not require an Hostgator dedicated server and could provide some feedback on the profit potentials

    I would be interested in your opinion on this approach

    There are always problems with product launched. I had no clue we would sell 5,000 copies of the software in 3 days. This put a huge strain on our system bringing our huge dedicated server down. I had to move everything to a cloud based server in the middle of the launch. What a mess....

    This blogging platform flat our works like a dream. Today it is 9:30am PST and we have build several hundred sites already.

      Just because certain sports cars can do 130 miles per hour on a residential road doesn’t mean you should use them that way.



      There’s no telling what some black hat acrobat could do if they steal the software and thousands of people are all running it at the same time.
      That’s why we feel that 199 are enough for those of you who want success badly enough to get a chance to have this software change your life.
      It’s not too much to let the cat completely out of the bag.
      That was a bit of a tangent about why we’re strictly limiting access to this to 199 people and no more.
      I bought the product including the mass deploy and I am disappointed with what I hear about the number of copies.

      We could eventually hit a saturation point and I don't think there will be any incoming profits after that.

      Bill,

      ... Because you weren't supposed to. How do you explain this? (taken directly from your sales page):

      - We decided to make 199 slots available to use this software.
      - Two hundred was the basic idea, but 199 sounds a little bit more interesting.
      - That’s why we feel that 199 are enough for those of you who want success badly enough to get a chance to have this software change your life.
      - That was a bit of a tangent about why we’re strictly limiting access to this to 199 people and no more.
      - As you can tell by how few people we’re letting actually purchase this, we are not in this to make a whole lot of money off this launch.

      :confused:

      Despite the discrepancy in your sales letter vs what you just revealed in your post, I am looking forward to seeing this system in action. I'm still waiting for my new domain to propogate.

      While the instructions recommend a dedicated server, I presume it's okay to start out on any host account that allows certain capabilities for the system to work. This is important for people with low budgets to know.

      I'm using my low-cost hosting service which does allow those things - as far as I've been told.

      For those who are concerned re this, I say try it on whatever host you have that fits the criteria - with just one blog system. Once you get it up and running and you see how well it works and how much money you can make, then consider going to a Reseller or Dedicated Server which are both suggested options in the program. The Reseller is nowhere near the cost of a dedicated server.

      Bill, you can correct me if I'm wrong.

      Your system certainly seems to meet my criteria - of getting content onto my blogs in different niches without having to work so hard to do so - and to have some sort of traffic generation system in place to make it all work.

      I'm really looking forward to my first installation and the results it can bring.

    The videos I did above was done quickly. You want to make sure you have a time to build solid subdomains. Logical exstension of the root domain. For example.

    I have a domain named http://electricguitarbrands.com/

    the subdomains are

    FenderElectricGuitar.electricguitarbrands.com
    GibsonElectricGuitar.electricguitarbrands.com

    I guess it is just easier to criticize then simply understand the power of this software.

      Thank you for your response.

      How are you addressing the duplicate penalty issue?

      I know some people say it doesn't exist, but I once create an article directory/autoblog and after after about 6 months of decent adsense earnings ... all I was doing was making a directory of articles similar to ezinearticles.com and the entire domain was delisted from google.

      All that work ... Up in flames.

      Does your program somehow add some uniqueness to the content?

      In Bill's defense, let me tell you that the "base" product is quite nice. As I was using it, I quickly realized that what is really need it the upsell ($197) that given a CSV file auto creates all these sites for you. The upsell is called Mass Deploy. I purchased it and gave it a spin.

      1) I was able to create 150+ sites in under 10 minutes. They are all sub-domains of the main site.

      2) When using the upsell you loose some of the flexibility that you have in "manual" mode. For example, all campaigns for a given site will run on the same schedule, whereas in manual mode you could set things up so that videos get posted once a day, articles every 9 hours and Amazon products every 13 hours. With the mass deploy tool you don't have that flexibility.

      3) In manual mode you are able to assign categories to each campaign. For example, your Amazon campaign can be assigned to the "Books and Accessories" category and your You-Tube campaign can be assigned to the "Videos about xxx" category. That flexibility is gone in the Mass Deploy upsell.

      4) Even though all these sites are created with scheduled campaigns, they simply don't work. I only get posts in my main site and not in any of the sub domains.

      5) Every single subdomain is created with that dreadful Hello World post. If you want to get rid of it you need to into each one and delete it.

      6) Here is the worst part. Bill had a users forum where all members were able to exchange ideas and glitch fixes. The forum is gone and instead he replaced it with an outsourced ticketing system. It's awful! They simply don't respond to your tickets! I must have posted 7 tickets, 2 of which where asking for the forum to be brought back. The only replies I got where to the ones regarding the forum. In other words, they are incapable of helping you out with technical issues!

      Overall I think that it is a good product, only if it were to work! I am a software developer and a director of software development. For us, process automation is extremely important and that is why I was attracted to this product.

      My suggestion to you all is that if you do want to try it out, do so but stay away from the upsell until they get all the glitches worked out.

    Personally if you’re going to ask the product owner questions and he is replying here in the thread I think I would ask him why he had server problems at all if he was supposedly only selling 200 copies....especially when he himself states he didn't expect to sell 5000 copies in 3 days.

    It's this kind of blatant lie that gives IM a bad name in general and in my opinion it's even worse when it's done against our own kind.

    I'm sure the product does some amazing things and from the sounds of it (based on some of the user reviews), it just might...but what I really have a problem with is the shady marketing approach. I find it very difficult to trust someone when they've obviously lied straight to my face!

      When TV commercials call for action by saying something is offered for the next five minutes only, or next hour, but two hours later you call and still get it, do you get all bent out of shape?

      Personally I don't use false scarcity because there are all kinds of great ways to build legit scarcity into your launch if you spend the time to think about it - and they actually work much better!...but....the idea of "limited supplies" and "the next hour", etc etc is as old as the hills. In other words, it's a MARKETING concept (one they actually teach you to use at universities in marketing classes in fact) ....it's by no means "exclusive" to IM.

    Duplicate content isn't an issue... but Copyright violations are. I had an autoblog that was pulling from an article directory... lets call it "ab.com".

    I received an email from my hosting company that my account had been suspended due to a copyright violation, and they shut down ALL of my sites... I have over 50 on this one hosting account, which includes all of my niche sites and business sites as well as clients websites.

    I couldn't really "raise hell" about it because I violated their T.O.S. by having an article that was copyright protected... but I had no idea because it was pulled automatically from ab.com.

    I merely had to remove the article before they would re-activate my account, but had I not been in my email when I received the notice... my sites could have been down for a LONG time.

    Just giving you guys a heads up about my experience with autoblogging... I still may buy this product and put it to use, but I may need to get another hosting account because I don't want my sites shut down again.

    Its scarcity... everybody does it. Lie? yes... but that is an age-old tactic.

      Well, I was talking about getting delisted from the SERPs. I had an article directory with over 50,000 articles (no copyright violations) in which I was earning decent adsense before Google delisted the entire site ... no reason given.

      The only reason I could think of was duplicate content from the author submissions. I did nothing else wrong.

      I was a little worried the same thing might happen with autoblogging.

      Selling drugs to kids is an age-old tactic too, but that doesn't make it right. It's not scarcity, it is a lie. And based on that lie, you have to wonder what else he's lying about. Not only that, reading the sales letter alone should make you wonder if he really knows what he's talking about. The "Google Test" is a joke, lol.

    The guidelines of Ezine Articles CLEARLY gives you the right to use their articles if you include all the links. But if you had a disgruntled author, I would have done the same, and removed his article but I would have also reminded him of Ez's guidelines. He shouldn't be posting articles there if he doesn't want them syndicated.

    I realize scarcity is part of the game and in some ways I understand it...doesnt mean I have to agree with it! If a marketer at all intended to actually (even partially) make something scarce and "inadvertantly" over sold a few copy's / memberships or whatever that would be one thing but to say you're only offering 200 and then sell 5000 in the first 3 days...well that's just rediculous...tha'ts 25 times what he advertised, think about that...that goes way beyond scarcity marketing in my book.

    Just my 2 cents.
