Anyone Have Feedback On CPA Destroyer?

21 replies
Hey everybody I need a little help. I'm considering purchasing CPA Destroyer from Steve Iser and John Hoster. I've been on a few webinars and I'm a member of the Dirty CPA which is a product they promote. I want to know if these guys are for real and if they deliver what they promise. This course is currently $3,000 and I don't want to throw my money away.

From my understanding they offered this course before and I wanted to know if anyone joined and what their experience was.

Thanks in advance,
Shawn

    Lemme save you 3K:

    12 Step Blueprint - Making Money with CPA I have found a formula that has been working for me with a CPA offer. As of April 4th, 2009, here are my stats:

    Week 1 - $110
    Week 2 - $160
    Week 3 - $230

    We have just started Week 4, my weeks are from Sat - Fri and I am at $90 this week. The site has been growing each and every week as you can see and with minimal more promotion from me.

    Total earnings: $590.00 in 23 days and counting (5/4/09)

    The site is on track to make over $750 for its first full month.

    Given all of the great information I have received from the Warrior Forum, I would like to share my blueprint so others can be successful too.

    Here are the 12 steps that I took and what I did to set things up:

    1. Select CPA offer to market
    2. Conduct Keyword Research to identify good trafficked keywords with low competition (Select 5 - 10 good keywords) I usually try to find a keyword that has at least 100 visitors a day with less than 50,000 competitors
    3. Register your domain name with your best keyword
    4. Setup website hosting
    5. Redirect your domain to your website host
    6. Install a Wordpress blog from cPanel
    7. Setup a category on the blog for each keyword
    8. Setup a post for each keyword (write a quick 200 - 300 word post about the keyword)
    9. Social bookmark main blog web address, bookmark each post as well
    10. Create a video, I used camtasia and did a screen capture, make one for each keyword
    11. Post to YouTube for sure, ( I would use TubMogul and blast it to other sites as well)
    12. Social bookmark each video

    This is the blueprint I used to start generating sales within hours of having my site setup.

    Please contact me if you have any questions, I would be happy to assist in any way I can.

      Do you take different other related videos and edit it to become your video and post it to YouTube and other video site? This is my main problem that i have no idea how to create a video to post it to YouTube and to other video site.

      How come you post your April 4th, 2009 earning stats and not the latest earning stats like Oct or Nov? Do you still continue doing it or you already stop it since Apr.

      I really like to make some cpa money but i dont have that kind of money to invest on CPA Destroyer. Would you help me with that? Thanks

    $3000? Better to get there on your own using Warrior Forum and WSOs. They may have great content, but you will find the same value spending even just $500 on WSOs, I would say. They can't have anything that's so insanely valuable that you couldn't compile for yourself.

    You've got to hand it to them (CPA Destroyer), the have got some kahunas charging $3000 for a CPA course. I would rather never make a penny online than pay that kind of money. All the methods for CPA are available for free. The hard part in my opinion is the technical side of things. How to make videos using camtasia, how to use ftp, create landing pages, upload files to an incentive site, writing good articles, using Aweber, keyword research etc. These are the things that have to be learned. CPA marketing in itself is quite simple. Find a good offer and use effective traffic strategies. Save yourself three grand

    Save the cash, as you can see, there is everything you'd need in this here forum. I've been here a while and I routinely find excellent info and just copy the post in question to googledocs. The War Room is an excellent investment and I highly recommend that for sure.

      Have a friend who got the package. Pretty good in marketing, generally. Obviously to throw away this much $.

      His review is, pretty basic concept of CPA. They seem to ignore the new FTC changes and recommend flogs. Copying others, just rewriting it a little bit and you're good. They recommend software or introduce software that can be bought elsewhere cheaper.

      Says there were modules that resembles Dirty CPA. PPC/CPA pay per click numbers were off.

      He wasn't too impressed but had me share this here.

        I was one of the suckers who actually bought the $2997 Dirty CPA Destroyer course (and the other stuff before that last mega up sell) . I guess you could interpret it as a measure of my desperation to finally make a leap forward in my IM endeavours and I was prepared to "put my money where my mouth is".

        CPA Destroyer $2997 Mentoring Course. What I can say about it is that I quit after about two weeks. I participated in the first 2 webinars which did not add any new information to the base Dirty CPA Course and I thoutht that if I haven't learnt anything new after 2 weeks in a 7-week course that costs $2997 dollars than I better get out of it. I also had the impression that John Hostler and Steve Iser were making this course on the fly. There was no schedule and a gap of 10-days between the first and the second webinar - too much for such a "high calibre 7 week course" (John explained this, but still..) and I had a number of other issues with the course as well.

        Unfortunately, the "Iron-clad, 100% -60 Day Money Back Guarantee" is not as forthcoming as they would have made you believe in their sales letter. I got all my money back from the first three products, as they are managed through Clickbank. The CPA Destroyer course is charged through a different system and once I made it clear to John Hostler and Steve Iser that I would not continue and take them up on their "Iron-clad 100% - 60 Day Money Back Guarantee" all communication from John Hostler stopped - he even blocked me from Skype. Steve Iser has never communicated with me other than promotional mails!

        Needless to say that I still have not received my refund (I requested it 14 Dec 2009 and my card provider told me it should only take 2-3 business days!) and my 7 emails and 2 Skype messages to John & Steve asking about the status of the refund have been ignored! I have now instructed my Visa Card Company to initiate a Charge Dispute process based on them apparently not honouring their refund policy.

        TEXT REMOVED BY MODERATOR


        The other Dirty CPA Products:

        John Hostler's and Steve Iser's offer starts out with the base Dirty CPA course and at $77 it is OK, although I found subsequently much more and better information for free on the Warrior Forum.

        Their next up-sell is the Dirty CPA Copy & Paste Campaign which I also bought. My issue there is that at $97/month it is extremely expensive and if you have any scruples of what kind of campaigns you promote (e.g. if you don't want to promote the Google Biz Kit because it is a scam and Google is suing etc.) then you might waste a lot of money on these "pre-researched and top converting campaigns" which you can copy and paste.

        I also bought their $197 CPA Traffic Force product - which was not working for me. I got the Yahoo Answers part working but not the Article Base and YouTube part. John Hostler eventually got the Article Base part working but not YouTube (although he stated he would have fixed that too and he might have). The key component of the CPA Traffic Force seems to be an older modified version of WP Robot which adds a 468x60 banner in the footer. The advertised 250 Themes are just your usual FREE themes anybody can download from the internet. I have discontinued the use of CPA Traffic Force and bought the regular WP Robot plug-in, which is a much superior product and also much cheaper.

        So, anybody tempted to spend money on CPA Destroyer (or the other Dirty CPA products) - don't be a sucker like me! Stay within the Warrior Forum where you can get excellent information (often free), great WSOs and great and honest coaching & support.

          Hi psa777,

          JUst to let you know that that copy and paste subscription for $97 a month could have actually only cost you $24. If you clicked away from and said NO THANKS to the $97 the page comes back offering it for half that price. If you say NO THANKS again it comes back at you at half of that price. so if you accept the $97 you would have never have known any better. They sure do have got some tricks up their sleeves don't they

            Thanks Funchy for this piece of info!

            You're right, I didn't know that I could have gotten the Copy&Paste for only $24/month. And YES again, "they sure have some tricks up their sleeves", but it also shows all of us what they themselves think their products are actually worth! I wonder how much they would have discounted their $2997 'CPA Destroyer' program - maybe $49.99? That would have been fine with me and I would not even have bothered to ask for a refund (which BTW I still have not gotten 4 weeks after cancelling the CPA Destroyer and asking for one!). I don't mind upsells, downsells or these discount schemes - but discounting a $97/mth program down to $24/month tells me a lot about them & their products!

            Cheers,
            Peter

              Hi peter,

              Good to meet you. I'm new here. Looking into the whole IM thing and trying to get my head around it all. REally love to reolace my current income with IM.

              So basically, probably like most naive newbies, I've bought several IM products offering this and that (including DirtyCPA). but I've decided now not to buy anymore for the moment and am just going to be a member of the War Room for good advice and get something out there instead of just keep thinking about it. If you have any good advice for me ( a newbie) I would really appreciate it.

              Hope to talk again soon.

                Hi Funchy

                You made a wise decision NOT to buy anything new anymore. Make sure to also unsubscribe from the majority of the lists you are on! There is more than enough information here on the Warrior Forum. Select ONE strategy/program, follow it through, get results and then you can look at the next one.
                The danger for newbies (and I call myself only an "advanced newbie") is that we hop from offer to offer and not get anything up and running. One of my main problems is that I behave like a PERFECTIONIST (not sure whether I am one) which keeps me from getting stuff out. Although I believe it is important to strive for excellence, nobody starts with the perfect campaign, website etc. - so it's better to get things done as good as you can at the moment and rather fine tune later.

                To our success in 2010,
                Peter

            Where is the link to this program? I had bought the $499.99 CPA destroyer course, and I did not see an option for the copy and paste subscription.

            Let me know

    I was part of the original intake of the CPA Destroyer course. So, I want to share my experience here.

    I have spent quite a it of money over the last few years on IM courses and ebooks. I paid $5000 for the CPA Destroyer course when it came out. That's the biggest investment I have ever made in IM. But it's the BEST investment I have ever made in my IM journey.

    When Amazon closed my account because of their new policy of cutting out the PPC marketers like myself, practically my entire IM business was wiped out. Of course, I should have diversified but did not have the time. Anyway, I had to somehow replace my Amazon income stream with another IM-based income stream or I would have to get a day job again (a prospect that I dreaded).

    So, the CPA Destroyer program happened to come along at the right time. Still, $5000 was a lot of money to risk. But then, I have always had a high opinion of John Hostler, the crackshot copywriter, via the IM world. With that, I took the plunge and that's the best decision I have made in my IM career.

    I knew that if I were to succeed, I could not merely depend on how good the course was, or how successful people like John Hostler and Steve Iser were, or how well they could teach. I knew from my previous journey to success as an Amazon PPC-marketer that it also depends on myself, on applying myself fully and driving myself forward in a disciplined manner, on thoroughly understanding the lessons, on asking questions of my mentor, etc. Basically, the course, webinars and mentoring form the pre-requisite ingredients, but I still had to apply myself and do what it takes to succeed.

    I found that the webinars and notes were only the starting point. It is when I rigorously put into practice what was taught in those webinars and associated materials, that I really learnt how to succeed in CPA marketing. That's when I figured out why things work and don't work, and how to fix them, and how to try a different angle, etc, in conjunction with my mentor.

    By the way, the mentor assigned to me was John Hostler. He's such an amazing mentor and person. Although I was not personally mentored by Steve Iser, he's been very helpful too.

    Also, I have bought various CPA ebooks and WSOs. Many of them have been O.K. But to me, the $5000 I spent on the CPA Destroyer mentoring was the best investement I have ever made in IM. And in hindsight, that $5000 was cheap!

    To you success!

      Also, I have bought various CPA ebooks and WSOs. Many of them have been O.K. But to me, the $5000 I spent on the CPA Destroyer mentoring was the best investement I have ever made in IM. And in hindsight, that $5000 was cheap!

      To you success!
      Hi upupandaway

      I am pleased for you that the CPA Destroyer course obviously worked out for you and you were satisfied with the original $5000 course. Unfortunately, I can't share your positive feedback about the CPA Destroyer course I bought for $2997 last November, but I guess it's a matter of "different strokes for different blokes"?:rolleyes:

      Anyway, as far as I am concerned the real issue here and in my opinion important for all Warrior Members and any person looking to invest in a training program or any product that is sold with a "100% Money Back Guarantee", especially such a high priced one, is that the proprietors behind the CPA Destroyer course have till today (1 month after I requested a refund!) not honoured their "100% Money Back Guarantee" pledge to me as stated on their sales letter. Even worse (apart from S.I. for the first time in a response to a WF PM last night) they have ignored ALL my refund requests and communication consisting of numerous emails to them, Skype messages left on one of their Skype profiles plus voicemail messages left on the answer phone of the official order processor 'MyHealthandWealthLLC" and printed on the order receipt. I am sorry if I can't reconcile this kind of business conduct with "...an amazing mentor and person".

      But then again, maybe I am just a sucker and these "Iron Clad 100% - 60 Day Money Back Guarantees" were never meant to be taken seriously? In future I am certainly not going to invest anything above $49.99 on any online product regardless of the "100% Money Back Guarantees" unless I know for sure that the parties on the other end are absolutely and 100% trustworthy.
