Has anyone bought/tried this $997 software? Sounds like it might work but awfully expensive. Promoted on webinar by Anik Singal.

    Hi.

    1. URL scraper software with bells and whistles. Software make sense.

    2. Think paid traffic like PPV, CPV, media buy, social mobile, etc regarding serious traffic.

    3. Steep coaching price in today's world of info accessibility.

    4. Do some homework on keyword smartness and traffic generation methods.

    The only drawback I saw to the techniques shown was that they did not discuss how much money the average traffic for the day would really cost to make a difference. The $5.00 example = 333 views at 0.015 per view in cpv. On a big site that would be gone in probably an hour or less which would be ok if the conversion was enough within those views 333 based on the PCV offer you are paid to promote. That is the key

    What I don't understand how can all 'free' sites send free traffic to he's site???
    Also he's CTR is 0.5-32% + With the huge traffic he's cost is like $1-$2k You have to have reserve to cover that kind of traffic and payout...until you get paid.
    Very risky and need some capital also to start with, I think.

    I still have another question--wouldn't popup blocking stop the ads? If not why not?

    Has anyone actually purchased and tried this? I'm tempted but it's really spendy for me right now.

    Because it is not actually working on that site. A CPV site watches people going toward that URL and gives them the ad along with the site. The person has to have set up an ad to watch that exact URL with one of those advertising companies, like CPVLab or DirectCPV or others I am sure. That is generaly how it works.

    I am more interested in where they show you how to do it manualy, with out the $1000 point and click crap. Where Anik copies URLs into a spreadshet and complains about how hard it is to do ? It does not look that hard to me. If you knew some very popular products AND could find CPV offers that make sense I bet there could be some bucks made doing it manualy. But I don't think it is as easy as they make it sound to find matching products and CPV offers.

    I paid 5 bucks to get into these webinars with Anik and have done the first 4 and am regreting it already, with 11 more to go. He is just using all of the people who paid the 5 dollars as a marketing audience. His training is less then thrilling and he is all over the place. He complains about having to get up so early because he is in India and how he is not a morning person and rambles on like a drunken sailor. AND promotes his stuff over and over. It's a backlink service on the last webinar.

    It better get better or I am better off doing something else with my time.

    Right. Thanks, Yohoho for articulating what I had been feeling re the Anik training. I'm inclined to agree that the low cost training was a great way to get a captive audience to flog stuff. It's not to say there is no valuable or accurate information, certainly worth the cheap price, but our time is worth something as well.

    I'm astounded that some were charged $5 to attend a sales webinar. I saw it for free.

    No, we saw it for free also. Some people watching the sales webinar are also in a training course with Anik for which some of us paid only $5.00, some other people paid $39.99 or something like that.

    He presented this webinar to us as a special guest presenting a webinar to teach us about a new method of getting traffic. Then he promoted it for a few of our classes the same way. I suspected it was going to be a sales presentation but had no way of knowing until a few seconds into the loooooong boring webinar. I hate those long sales presentations. mostly I just bail out. Luckly I was watching the video recording of the live webinar so I could jump ahead to the price at which point I bailed out quickly.

    Have to agree with yohoho.

    I paid for this...

    Marketing With Anik: 15 Weeks Coaching PLUS $5000 in Training!

    It was promoted as something experienced marketers would also benefit from. So far it has been only suitable for absolute beginners. In fact, he even gets down to explaining what a blog is. So if thats the level then its for those who are not just new to IM, but they're new to internet, computers, technology, and the light bulb.

    Anyway, back on topic.
    MassTrafficX is just another hyped up shinny thingy for the magpies to peck at.

    Just got off the webinar they tried pulling off as live... they had the google Valentines day logo.... its the 19th and no one responded to questions. Too boot they recorded the same last few sentences of the webinar and replayed them for about 10 minutes.....

    This seems to have truth to it, but iv seen these $997 products too many times and have been let down by them to many times....

    IF ANYONE, does take action on this, please let us know what you find and if it works/worth it.

    Just got another email from Anik today pushing this thing again. He tries to make me think it is actually something else but when you go there it is the same old thing.

    Looks like a scam. Very disappointed in Anik with this.

    Let me count the ways this whole thing pisses me off...

    1. Too many emails telling me how it's a ONE time LIVE webinar that is SOOOO super top secret it will never be recorded or replayed. UMMM total BS it was recorded from the get go as I typed a couple of questions in but they never got to mine only the cheerleader type comments...

    2. I thought as someone else said watching Anik do it manually did not look that hard to me. More so if he says its going to take about 4 hours to set up that campaign that they claim is making him over a grand a day, 4 hours seems like a fair trade off... assuming its not BS like the "live" webinar.

    3. I don't like how they glossed over the numbers, at one point he was going on about how a 2.3% CTR was huge. But unless I have my math screwed up (which is possible) 2.3% of 100 would be 2.3 clicks? That 100 impressions would have cost him 1.50 according to his .015 maximum cost per click. His email submit was paying him 1 buck. So even if we gave him 3 clicks he is making 3 bucks for every 1.50 her spends. I am not complaining its a good return but you needs to have some deep pockets to make big money. He claims to be making over 200k a month on average, that is a LOT of ads and a LOT of clicks and a LOT of money going out while you wait for the payments to come in.

    4. They claimed ONLY 30 spots, then before the recording ended they added 5 more, sorry guys all gone. Go to the page now it's still open, still selling the same price AND they have added a 3 payment option.

    5. Anik claims he is footing 200.00 of the cost for the first 30 people because he's such a nice guy, of course the 200 is BUILT in to the price showing ummmm yeah

    Overall just another spammy hyped up shiny new object that I have bought WAY TOO many of in the past from way too many gurus that really have only their bank accounts in mind...

    Anyway thats my read on the complete and total waste of time I felt it was to sit through all that... maybe I a wrong and it's he holy grail but I am simply NOT putting out another grand for another silver button.

    If the main function of the software is to get a bunch of keywords and then pick up the URLs for the first two pages of results, aren't there are lot of cheaper tools around that might do this already, just without the training and the hype? Maybe programs like listed in this warrior forum post
