Default High Traffic Academy by Vick Strizheus Review

Hey Fellow Warriors,

Have you guys come across Vick Strizheus and his new High Traffic Academy? Your opinion on this latest traffic product would be appreciated.

I've watch the 3 free videos and there's one more to come before Vick opens the doors to this product. So far I have to say the guy has this unique energy and style. He knows how to win his audience with some free strategies and the live pay proofs from some PPV companies. His ROI is over 200%.

It looks impressive but it's always great to hear different viewpoints.

Thank you

I watched the first 2 videos and didnīt found anything I didnīt knew before. Making a profit with paid advertising is always hard and you must be prepared to lose money. I didnīt find a magic trick in the videos that can guarantee an average 200% ROI.

Hey Affiliated Survivor,

I agree videos 1 and 2 were basic, however, video 3 is impressive as it shows more advanced strategies. What do you think?

@ Ross Petal

Even with a 100% ROI for making a $ 1.000 you need a $1.000 to invest in traffic buying. If you want to have 250,000 visitors a week (I believe thatīs what he said in the first video) you need a lot of cash.

@ Joseph7384

With "magic trick" I mean that itīs not easy to make a 200% ROI and not something that even experienced marketers make on average per campaign. You need a magic trick to achieve something like this.

Hello Fellow Warriors:

I just finished watching Vick's Marathon Video #3 at 1.52 hours. Its rather majestic that he can off the cuff it for that long and maintain focus, energy and enthusiasm.

I suggest you watch it if you can see yourself as an arbitrage marketer and have the wherewithal to really test the waters. What I mean is you are going to need some bones in the bank to make this work because nothing ever works out as smoothly as the mastermind behind the method makes it looks on the surface.

Unless you are already stuck into PPV or Solo Ads let Vick march you through the basics here. You will pick up enough info nuggets in videos 1 thru 3 to give it a go on your own if your ballsy but you may blow your stash so I'm waiting for video 4 to see how affordable HTA's entry price will be.

In considering HTA I will be thinking about how whether I will be able to set up persuasive landing pages, craft ads and adroitly manage campaigns more than how many different sources of traffic I will have at my finger tips..

Either way you go internet marketing has it s frustrations, rubicons and disappointments.

To me it boils down to which business model you believe you can best execute. Is it Amazon Affiliate Marketing, Rolling Your Own Product, Mobile Apps or Vick's PPC + alpha?

I wish there was a real online marketing EQ test to really sort this out.

Your comments appreciated,

Just finished a marathon 5 hour stint watching all these videos.
Impressed with the presentation and the upbeat delivery.
But wonder how real it all is. So many promises in IM and very hard to realize.
PPC is not new I agree but with Panda and Penguin "shaking their bootie" all over the net I am tired of the lack of control search marketing with free traffic gives.
A good idea to just pay for traffic and take a margin.
Feel its a whole new world for some of us who have been chasing bright shiny things all over the web! Do I need another 4 weeks of learning and trying without a good result!
Either way his course will be expensive...even with the 75% discount offered.
Nice approach to give us a chance to "test and measure" some of his strategies before shelling out the cash.
Keen to see more comment. Noticed that all the sites he recommends have closed off new memberships.
From the registrations at the end of the video it seems he has thousands of punters following him and drooling.
Perhaps its a good idea to wait 6 months till all the hype dies down and reality sets in. Anyway, pretty stunning product launch eh!
Bottom line is, if this stuff is so good, why does he need to sell a course?
Just go print some more money!!

I watched the 3. video by now. At least a part of it. I stopped when he started about solo ads and I realized there was nothing new for me. I donīt mean that buying traffic does not work, but infos on where and how to buy traffic arenīt something new. Knowing the rules of the game doesnīt automatically means winning the game. Making money with paid traffic is always difficult and it comes down to having a product/sales funnel that converts well. And at the moment I donīt have a product I can believe in. Just picking some products from Clickbank will probably not work.

keloland.com/videoarchive/index.cfm?VideoFile=082409insurance. Judge for yourself. just remember that he is still serving his probation until 2014.

Maybe being on probation and having the courts check all his financial dealings will make this honest.

I got in. Not saying it's bad, but just basic beginner stuff, settimg up landing pages, autoresponders, creating sales funnel strategies etc.

I keep hearing more is coming... I'm not seeing it. I'll keep an open mind another few weeks, then I'm bailing. Anyone have better insight, I'm open to it

He basically hustled you (if you bought it). There's a video on youtube that shows him buying ADFLY traffic in order to get those extremely high numbers he posted about. I guess he had the video on his private server (that was public) and moved it once some guy started posting about it.

I'd hold my money if i were you. The only diff between this and all other courses is that some things that he talks about he just elongates.

He tells you about the campaigns and shows you the stats but hes not doing anything real time. It's merely just a lot of talking and shows you how to get started.

There is no real deal in the trenches kind of teaching. Just a load of talking.

He does reveal a few exclusive things that I never heard of but besides that its just him talking about what he did and not showing and LIVE things hes doing at the moment.

In simplest terms he just does a lot of talking about what and how he did things, what to look out for and how to get started.

It's all paid traffic so if your not willing to spend money on advertising don't even bother with it.

One thing i learned from this course is that some people can take one strategy and turn it into something long and boring.

No I am not knocking or in anyway insulting Vick. Im just stating my experience with this product.

If you want to learn how to get traffic and do it effectively you need to follow someone that "shows you the inside" of their traffic strategy rather than just "talking" about traffic.

I got the course and to be very honest, I have never done PPC or media buy but this has been the start of positive things. I also want to mention, i didnt care what past life he had done because everyone deserves a second chance, depending of the level of guiltyness.

He does walk you through from A-Z in setting up website, landers and email automation. The positives are, he provides website landers templetes, click tracker and url scrsper. All the traffic methods he walks you through are live ( be prepared he does ramble a lot), email solos, google image ad, msn ad, banner ad, ppv, email marketing ezines (I may have missed 1 or 2 extra ones)

I first tried out google image ad, I followed his exact steps and my image ad in the IM nice promoting a high conversion product, but it kept on getting rejected. I guess there are a number of reasons why. Google pointed out the display URL didn't match, well, Vik did the same thing In his video. That method didn't work at all.

I tested banner ads, $30 for 30 days, so far 15 clicks and 2 optins in 12 days, crap conversions. Now, based on Vik's theories with a banner ad you should get a .05% conversion, well, more like .004% (using a click bank product banner that has proven results)

I am trying out solo ads righ now.

My honest opinion is this, the information IS VERY basic and can be found cross the web. He doesn't mention remarketing.

On top of that, his traffic section is dated, I think 2 or 3 years old. For $500 it is not worth the price. I did infact get a refund and reinvested in another course that actually teaches PPC.

Hope this helps you out

Yea that's what I thought... He's full of himself!
He scared me off right away but I watched his videos then checked his background.

You have to admit if you checked into him it's a scary purchase
But I'm like you, you have to give people second chances... But at that price
it's way to scary... maybe if he lowered it to maybe 100 I would have went for it!

Anyway what's the other course you decided to invest in?
And how does it differ from Vic's and are you making any progress?

Thanks

Good point! This has been my feeling about every money making opportunity in the last few years. Critical pieces of the puzzle are always missing.

I can't shake the feeling that everything is effectively dominated, and new things are dominated quickly by those with the missing pieces and skills, and the only thing left is money makers which don't work because they are all based on pursuing that which is already dominated. Dead end for all newbies. Now it's just a vacuum job sucking up the last of the wealth of the US before the country goes total broke.

I've been a an HTA member for a few months now, I agree there is a lot of basic info, however for me, I was a newbie so the way it was taught was very step by step and easy to follow. I took one of his methods and ran with it, and today (about 2 months later) I'm making atleast $200 /days. His method works. There are many wso's that are out there, that works perfect, but as someone mentioned here on WF, once you buy, print, turn off the computer, read through atleast 3-5 times, so you can get back online, and jump into it, and do every step of the way, for 2 week, and majority of the time, you'll profit. Since a member of WF, I've done this about 15 times, and I've found some golden nuggets to use in my arsenal of IM. Theres a lot of good stuff, and fro reviews and such, you'll know what ones are to stay away from.

@BetterThanZero
I agree, the price is WAY to steep based on basic information. I decided to invest in ppc product formula 3.0 just google it. I dont know if he closed the doors, BUT, the price is something like $400+ now. If you look around you can find old discount links.

Anyways, Vik, is a guy that promotes Constance positiveness in media buys. Dont get me wrong, I know there are lots of people who earn $$$$, but I also would like to know what things can and will go wrong too, this is where he falls short.

Dont get me started on the tracking tool he provides, OMG. Its as worthless as a computer that cant turn on.

Maybe I am being a bit harsh on the guy, but for a course that HAS cost me $500, its a joke.

As I said before he past wasnt a problem, I gave him the benefit of the doubt, but now. Well, its a shame.

Thanks for the reply
and the honest review!

I just got an email from Vic that he just released the 4th video
It includes testimonials of his students...

Don't worry I'm not biting on his program as I think he's a shark!

I will though check out the program you are in now.
Thanks for the heads up...

I also seen Greg Davis just opened up his program which I would have loved to get into but it's just way to steep for me.

997 now then 297 a month...

But he's the one doing 50 G's a day...
Could be worth it if you had the skin to get into the game!

Fully agree with Michelle. Most of the people in this thread just saw Vick's sales videos and based their comments only on what they saw there, together with some private detective activities.
On the other hand, those warriors of this thread who bought HTA course only roughly tested some paid methods, but I don't see that anybody focused on one or two and mastered it until getting some outcome. Just jumped from one place to the next one without going deeper with anything.
Reading some posts here it looks like if paid traffic does not deliver results, and most IMrs around know that it is almost impossible to lose if you do the right things and are ready to invest some money.
I'm a HTA member and I can't say that Vick is a shark and I don't care at all about his past. He really knows his stuff and teaches what he previously proved in his business. And he is a first class teacher.
There are hundreds and hundreds of positive comments, and thousands of "likes" about HTA in his sites and I think that not all of them can be wrong.
I bought many BS products out there (including a lot of WSOs) and I can say that HTA is not a Scam.

@robertom, I guess your comment Is a generic message to swipe at everyone, so i want to lay out some facts.

As I said before, I don't care what vik has done in his past as long as he provides VALUE. I'm not proud of what I have done in my past, however to all my subscribers I provide value.

Now, let's talk about the course methods. They are very basic, for example.in adcenter HTA talks about getting as many keywords and slap them all in there and monitor it after, wt-heck, that is guess work, why. In another course I am in (I am not here to promote it, just provide facts) I was told and have tested, if you have a list of, let's say 2k keywords on dating. It should be split up in 30-40 keywords in each block very easy to monitor and get ride of the bad apples. Because in you insert all 2k keywords your landing page will get poor score from MSN.

One method I can honestly say that works like a treat is the email marketing method. But let's be honest here, you can pick up a course for $100 or less to cover that. IMO his methods are basic, and in return you will spend a lot more in marketing costs. We all understand testing, testing and testing is a must, but HTA is merely and overview on traffic getting.

Not worth 1k, oops I forgot to add the 60% discount,$400.

Why do you have to buy any course? He showed you his tricks in the free videos, just try those, if it works for you give it a try.

Funny you should mention that. I've never done PPC before but I figured I'd give it a shot. I found a Clickbank product with a gravity over 50%. Put the website into Google Adwords and came up with a keyword I like. Invested $100 with Plenty Of Fish using only the one long tail keyword I like and now I'm making money with it. I figured the only way to make money with PPC is using one good keyword at a time. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I wouldn't say so. If you look at people for what they have done, and not for who they are now, everyone's credibility would be blown. No one is perfect and Everyone makes regrettable mistakes.

But to everyone else thanks for the reviews and opinions. Still not convinced so I will go check out some videos and stalk this thread for a bit longer.

Maybe being on probation and having the courts check all his financial dealings will make this honest.
Well thatīs horrible right there. But in my opinion we just need to test the system out and see for ourselves. We could just spend $20 and see if the techniques work or not. Maybe they work. Of course I will not deposit $1000 for it. But there are a few ad networks that let you deposit $25. Thatīs enough for me to test it out.

Maybe we could find a great WSO topic if we get great results from it.

It is evident that the guy does not have a good background. But let just test the technique. Maybe they work for us. Not 200% but maybe 50%.

Itīs just my opinion. See you later my friends...

I, for one joined HTA when it first open in August...being not so new to IM but wanted test it out, I'm just a regular membersh-- not a VIP member. To join in it's $497/OTO; to join eLite it's $297/month, and a VIP is $997/OTO. The free video series promises alot, but it's not what it is...I've tested a few PPC/CPV methods from the freeby videos with $200 and no sales but only 3 opt-in....however Vick did keep true to his word, full refund back...

Never got to HTA Level 2...like promise...after almost 60 days in...

My business coach said one time that if you don't believe that your product is the best one available, then there's no reason why anyone should buy from you.

It's harsh; but it's the truth. And on the internet, we could all do with a bit more of that, don't you think?

Now this is good advice that everyone should be doing.

If you don't believe in your product why would your buyers?

It's that simple put out a good product and you will see good results...

Arrow Re: High Traffic Academy by Vick Strizheus Review

Vick joined us in Empower Network 3 weeks ago. He made over $500K in those 3 weeks from a "test" campaign to only 1,300 subscribers. If you're looking at taking affiliate marketing seriously, I highly recommend adding Empower to your arsenal. That's why guys like Vick, Rob Fore and other uber-successful affiliate marketers are doing just that. Those $1500 days feel AWESOME. My enroller is up to 100K/month in his 12th month and our team is benefiting from this massive synergy. All the best! (More info, check my sig) Aloha, - Seth Gambee husband, dad, elevator

So the guy clearly F-ed up in a "previous life" before he discovered internet marketing.

No one in here has ever broken the law ever or did something you're not proud of.

It doesn't take away from the fact that he can drive massive amounts of traffic and convert that traffic.

In less than a month he did over $583K in commissions from a deal many in here don't think works. lol

It looks from your link that your promoting HTA,therefore you must be a partner as Vick calls us,well im one too.let me tell you a little bit about it.
Im a newbe to IM and i saw Vicks videos,i was very impressed(i joined ao partnership level nearly $2000.00) but the way i looked at it was all i had to do was get traffic,and as i had some spare money to pay for advertising i thought i was on to a winner...now the results,over the last 2 weeks i have put over 700 optins and got zero sales,even a a bad conversion rate of 1%,i should have got a sale at least.i currently have a couple of ad campagins running when they finish,if i hav,nt had any sales,then im going to go to clickbank and get my money back.thanks for listening

This strategy is good if done with caution and professionalism. Create nice optin pages and auto responder series. I mean just get into it with out any fear. Google traffic is the best but its expensive. Its fairly simple if you going to get cheap traffic it may hurt you bad in conversions. So there is no argument.
If you search a bit on internet you can find some free courses on PPC. About the video about Vic I would say it can happen to humans when they have responsibilities. They tend to chose wrong path but if on apology then things are clean because they have learnt their lesson.

Really? So are you saying we are all con men? Or did you not bother to check out the link posted earlier about the court decision? The only reason the guy isn't behind bars is because the judge took pity on his family.

If you are going to base your buying decisions on due diligence, what more do you need than someone being convicted of an outright scam (and still serving probation), before you would take a pass?
