    It looks to be a great product for media buys and strategies from the looks of it. I may get it in a few days.

    Greg...

    Thanks so much for the great video review. I'll diffently be giving this a try now. It looks like a good solid education with banner ads...something I've been wanting to learn!

    Thanks for your review, very interesting. Will buy it shortly. In the meantime are there any upsells or is it just the price as shown which is incredibly cheap?

    Thanks

      This is just a plain joke!

      I was also tempted to give it a try as I watched this review video, however, I didn't find any of the mentioned value inside!

      These are a bunch of very basic videos that will hardly worth attention, even for free.
      Very basic info, non sense, and just a waste of time...

      I really laughed when I viewed Module 3 about direct linking vs landing page

      Here's a recap for the golden nuggets you get from the whole module:

      -Both direct linking and using a landing page has pros and cons (yeah..what a catch)..

      -Some offers will work for direct linking, some will work for landing pages
      ( what a surprise)

      -And finally, the best inspiration, (hold your breath before reading that)..you need to talk to your affiliate manager to confirm which offers allow direct linking...(OH MY ..!!)


      This is the type of knowledge in most of the modules, and yes, I was able to browse it all within 2 hours, all the secret ninja videos are 5-10 min. in length.


      I grabbed this looking for info about media buying, but what I got so far is very disappointing...

      Maybe they keep their worthy knowledge for their upsells (2 x $197), but I still think that what I paid $77 for doesn't worth even the time I spent browsing.

        Could this mean ,Bary et al, that , if you are familiar with it, their Zero Friciton Marketing course already covers this "banner advertising " aspect enough good and what is added in this new course is just marginal comparing with that? I think anyone familiar with ZFM might have an opinion.

        I bought it and feels really bad.

        I am going to contact clickbank and suggest AT LEAST a limitation on One Time Offers.
        I also sent the sellers a mail explaining what questions I got after the OTO experience.
        The OTO totally invalidated the main product, made me think there is no valuable information there. And I even bought the first one, then I got another one costing $197, then another for $197.

        I have been interested to find good info on Banner advertising for a long time but this totally turns me off. Was it only 3 OTO´s ?

        I dont care if OTO´s is a "great marketing method", I totally hate it and will not use it myself.
        I hope OTO´s only create badwill so it will disappear because it doesnt feel honest. And I will also check if all said to be included on first salespage is included (if I have the energy....pheeew).

          Hi Warriors,

          I was very close to purchasing this product but I will now hold
          off or put it off totally.

          I for one don't want to see all that newbie stuff. I am more
          interesting in the "advanced media buys".

          Does anyone know of a good product about media buys utilizing
          banners?

          Thanks,

            Hi Keyz,

            It's not exactly the same but I've had some good consistent results with the Secret Pay Per Click method using banners as Image ads on the content network. I'm still tweaking and getting the long list of keywords honed in but they do bring in opt-ins for a couple of my sites every day.

            This strategy can be used for Clickbank, CPA or anything else you would want to promote.

            Hope that helps.

            Cheers!

          I actually bought the product, but none of the OTO's. What's funny about those is that you can still buy them in the membership area for the same price.

          I agree, 3 is a little much.

          I understand you!!!

          Didn´t you bought the product to learn more about media buying??

          Why even care about the OTO:s i never fall for that ****, even if they are great methods of getting more sales.

          Watch the videos and take Action, how hard can it be instead of complaining about some OTO:s. I just dont get it.

          No hard feelings, i just wanted that to be said.

            I watched the videos and found out that they were practically empty of VALUABLE information. Thats why I dont "take action" as you wondered why I hadnt. I have now, finally found information elsewhere that I can use. Me "complaining" is to let others know and I like it when others let me know too. I think its good to communicate facts like this and I think I will cool down on buying products as I have lately. I will wait a few weeks for others experiences here.

            Sure, no hard feelings.....

              Warriors, here is how you can know that the product owners are full of sh#t...

              I'm quoting from the salesletter...

              "I mentioned running banners profitably on the Google Content Network, but let me share with you the other sources I found and the fool-proof formulas I pieced together.

              But back to my story...

              I closed down campaigns that were making me $1500 a day.."


              Can you say... "BULL FREAKING SH*T"?

              This is like saying...

              "Dude, I got the hottest girl in all of Florida, but you know what, I really like toothless ugly chics.".

              or...

              "I have a brand new BMW in my garage but I prefer this 85 Datsun."

              or...

              "I gave away my beach house because staying in these MLM travel hotels is so much better."

              I don't' care who you are, but NOBODY turns off a profitable campaign that is making them $1500 a day unless they were doing unethical marketing and decided to go legit.

              Lets do some simple math, and assume his banner ads did make him $90,000 some thousand a month. And lets just assume it was all profit (which we know it's probably not)....

              A $1500 a day campain is $45000 a month.

              Even if you were making $90,000 a month, why would you turn off HALF of your income just because you found an additional source of money?

              You wouldn't.

              UTTER BS!

    Hmmm...I'm starting to have second thoughts now but still might give it a go. I'd like to think theres some good valuable information here. So does the regular $77 purchase include all 38 Videos or is that included in the upsells? Sorry for all the questions...maybe I'll just buy it and if not satisfied or believe it doesn't live up to the sales page/pitch ask for a refund.

      Don't , unless you're willing to jeopardize your money with the upsells, the basic product has a little value for anyone has been online for a month or so, the 38 videos you mentioned are the basic 5-10 min, video that only provide very basic info..

    Just my 2 cents worth.

    BA Blueprint appears to be yet another cash grab by someone with a very big list.

    To quote from a free high value affiliate course...."retinal studies have shown that Web surfers actually avoid banners. Yes, their eyes look away!"

    Think carefully before you buy & save your money for something more valuable

    Thanks Goldmine for telling me what I came here for: namely the Upsells.

    If the course was complete for $77 I'd consider buying it but when all those affiliate sellers where offering their high ticket bonuses the red flag started to wave.

    Sure enough...3 upsells, one being a membership!

    So, NO I'll not be buying it.

      High ticket bonuses are not indication of a bad product but affiliates are trying to outshine other affiliates so that potential customers would buy from them. That's probably because Saj P is well known marketer and lots of guys with bis list will mail about it to their list and then there are review site affiliates who are trying to ride on this buzz wave.

      No not really. I mean, I showed you what is actually inside the course. Whether I get a commission or not is iregardless, I made that quite clear and most of you have been around long enough to know how to sidestep it if you dont want the bonus.

      but would you rather have me NOT show you what you get when you order and everybody just keeps guessing?

      but this thread is not about that. It is about BAB, which despite "herd mind antics" going on in this thread, I think is still an excellent product.

        You are an affiliate for this product, I have bought this and it is very shallow. I bought the basic $77 and then the $47 OTO. Then ofcourse there was two more OTO´s for $197 each.
        One of them was considered a "must have" lol.
        Maybe there is more value in that then because as I said, the information in basic/main product is not worth $77 (in my opinion, need I say ?).

        Greg, its kind of more interesting listening to members who are not promoting it you know ?

        And about "herd mind antics" as you wrote, was that an insult to people here OR what did you mean specifically ?

          Personally, I think it's very deceptive advertising to sell a "one all, be all" product for $77 then have major upsells after the purchase just to "make it work"!!! Good thread and I know I won't be wasting any of my money on this one....and for those who just have to see what it is all about....click off the sales page and you will save $10 on an exit pop up. That way you will only waste $67....=)

          not meant as an insult at all, I started here on the WF with nothing but a username and built a 7 figure business from nothing in 6 months, so I would not insult the place where I came. If you want to know my thoughts specifically on that comment you can PM me as it goes far beyond the scope of this review thread.

      Fully agree to your statement.
      And what annoys me also is that many of the so-called gurus have absolutely no inhibitions to recommend this kind of products. And the countless OTOs just turn me off more and more.
      The result is clear: I don´t buy from them anymore.

        I cannot find a link to the actual software, it was just on a list of bonuses. I am looking for some information related to the actual software, but I have tried Google searches and can't find anything about it. If you are interested, PM me an email addy and I will forward a copy of the email I got from the creators or Mass Article.

          It's another Paul Ponna (ahem) "special" - There's a free download listed on the top page of Google if you want to grab it. The page says this product will launch in 2010. Can't figure out the strategy here - give it away and then launch it later?

          Anyway, it's a piece of software called "Keyword Dominator" and a TON of MP3s from the usual suspects. I haven't installed the software (I already have Market Samurai and MNC so why bother) and I dipped into one MP3 which was a low quality recording of some bloke going on about how Disney gets its staff to pick up litter in novel and entertaining ways. Right...

          Glad you brought it up because all the MP3s must be taking up a gig of HD space and I'd forgotten to delete them.

          As for BannerAdBlueprint, unless you want to take the plunge and find out if the "One Time" offers are any good, forget the $77 basic package ($67 if you click the link in the chat box that pops up when you try to leave the page)

          I got half way through and there's nothing you couldn't get for free by hunting around this site or doing a search on Google. Maybe it hots up in the latter stages but I can't be bothered just in case more of my time is wasted.

          You do get a LOT of bonuses though, for $67 there might be something in there that is useful. Again, I won't bother myself, the whole thing just turned me off and my time is better served by kicking myself in the ass for falling for another guru launch.

    BANNER ADS WORK!! PERIOD

    I know that's some strong language. But even with my stupidly ugly banners I'm getting decent results and can certainly be improved if I put more time into it.

    Have you guys seen How Life Works I see banner ads directing to this site from all over the internet. Especially Yahoo mail and a few other news sites. If you go there and look at the 'Recommended articles' on the top right hand side corner, you will recognize the banners I'm talking about. They cover all kinds of things and everything leads to a CPA (or some other offer). If banners didn't work, they wouldn't be doing it.

    As for this product, I'm sure even the $77 product has some gold nuggets if you're going to put it to practice. I'm definitely going to buy it because I've seen what my stupid basic banners are capable of, but I have to wait till Saturday because I have too many other things within the next 72 hours.

    My 2 cents is that, if anybody is going to put it to practice, buy it. If you don't like it return it; that's a different story; but don't be discouraged to not give it a try. The chances are, if you put it to practice, you will at least learn something!!

    I found another site like that. If you read this news item on Yahoo news Bayh the latest exit as moderates leave Congress - Yahoo! News and scroll down to the bottom right you will see some banner ads. Clicking on them will take you to ARA Lifestyle which is also another site like How Life Works. I get the feeling that both these websites are owned by the same guys.

    2nd EDIT - Another 5 minutes later

    I was browsing http://news.yahoo.com/topics/bill-clinton and what do I find? Banner ads from How Life Works

    The 2 sites look very similar I did a Whois lookup - http://www.whois.net/whois/howlifeworks.com and http://www.whois.net/whois/aralifestyle.com. According to them, they're not the same, but everybody knows you can give fake names to these accounts on GoDaddy etc.

      Although the ads being targeted to you are banner advertisements, there's something more than just banner ads going on behind the scenes here because I'm not seeing the same ads you are.

      It's the same thing going on behind the scenes when Mike Hill was promoting his CPA Tsnaumi and Sales Tsnaumi through banner ads on sites that had nothing to do with Internet marketing.

      It's called Ad Retargeting.

      You can get the value of this release right from the sales letter: You can make money with banner ads - look into it. I'd say that's quite common for the majority of IM releases. Very few have anything groundbreaking in them (you're more likely to find that here for $10).

      And kudos to those that are able to set up sales pages with multiple one time offers. It takes extra work not only to get people to buy, but also to avoid something getting screwed up along the way and losing the customer in the process.

      Now it stinks to buy something only to be given the impression in the first OTO that what you just bought is kind of lame or inadequate.

      Even so, just started selling something the other day (not this) and didn't even notice (putting up too many campaigns to) it had multiple OTOs until sales started rifiling in three at a time, instead of one at a time from each customer.

      If you don't like OTOs try selling them instead of buying them. They're lovely!

    I don't really mind OTOs IF they are done properly. In my opinion, the basic product should fulfill all the claims on the sales page and the OTO upsell is just a slight added value (which shouldn't cost more than the original product).

    Kind of like ordering a burger (which I'm happy with) and when they ask me, "Would you like fries with that?", I usually say "Yes". Pay a bit more for some added value.

    What I hate is seeing a few OTOs all saying stuff like "You can't live without this", "It's a must have". This makes me feel like the basic product is incomplete and useless, without adding the extras.

    Seems like some internet marketers are stooping to new lows now in the name of making a quick buck. Whatever happened to the good old concept of "giving the customer great value for money"?

            MS costs $147, if you're on a good number of marketers emailing lists, you should receive offers for a discounted price of $97.

    I'm seeing offers where the bonuses seem worth more than the product. So I may take the plunge just to get the bonuses. For example, Michael Rasmussen is offering all of Saj's products as well as 6 cut and paste campaigns.

    But I agree, the OTO strategy has been widely misused. When used properly, a OTO adds value to the original product or complements it in a natural way. When used improperly, it a) annoys the purchaser, b) degrades perception of the product being purchased making it seem like it is not everything the salesletter promised, setting the mindset for a refund rather than an upgrade.

    But by far the stupidest thing I've seen is a OTO on a free opt-in, with wording like "You will only see this page once, EVER!" But it works For an example, see my sig...

      Banner At Blueprint received less than impressive reviews here at the Warrior Forum. (Am I being too charitable?)

      The concept of such a course appears sound, although the execution is appears weak and the content pedestrian with this particular product.

      Is there an alternative course (or perhaps list of resources) that anyone could recommend, which has more substance.

      Thanks so much for any direction.

    I took a break from the ass-kicking and decided to install Keyword Dominator because I figured it was unfair to criticise something I hadn't even looked at, despite its origin.

    But, you know, you get a nose for these things and, sure enough, Keyword Dominator was instantly familiar. I downloaded it from Resell Rights Skip a while back and there it was, that same stench I thought I'd never have to endure again. Really, do not waste your time, this thing is less powerful than a half decent Excel macro and, impressively, even less intuitive.

    Upshot of "Keyword Annihilator?" I'm back on Paul Ponna's list... NOOOOOOO, it's like one of those zombie flicks where you can run a lot faster than them but they never tire, they never sleep and they'll get you in the end.

    I'm posting this tongue-in-cheek...

    For what it's worth, I always found banners to be profitable, especially when I placed one above an adsense ad and one below the same adsense ad. The visitors to my sites were so quick to try and avoid looking at the ads that they always ended up getting drawn to the adsense ads which resulted in extraordinary click-thru-rates.

    Respectfully,

        That isnt necessarily true, it depends if your using their CPM program or the CPC program. With the CPM program, you can target your own ads.

    Ok Guys, I really don't know why some of you don't like BAB. I bought it, put it to practice and already making money.

    I do admit however that I've never given a serious attempt at banners. But I have previously advertized on Adbrite, some CPV (clicksor and another network) with no success.

    With some of BAB methods I'm already making money. This 1st campaign is not making a lot, but I just have to rinse and repeat it.

    Ofcourse if you're an advanced IMer, even StomperNet or John Reese's traffic secrets may be of no use.

    I also have to speak about the bonuses. There are some very short 2 page reports that themselves alone will make you 1000s IF you put them to practice.

    Again, if there is any newbie in 2 minds about BAB; buy it, if you don't like it just return it; what have you to lose?

      Many of them do, but I don't think they really care. We are but a small percentage of their audience.

      So many people will get duped into buying these worthless courses that a few here and there saying the product is trash has very little bearing on the overall success of their product.

      They will make lots of money regardless of what we say here on this forum.

    I recently tried banner ad blueprint. I was direct linking offers with simple media placements in ad networks. So far the results haven't been very good.

    I reviewed BAB on my blog recently.

    Here's the short version: The info in BAB is waaaaay too basic. Not that it's wrong or anything, but most of the videos just cover stuff that you can easily figure out yourself.

    Definitely not worth the price, in my opinion.

    Sounds like the jurys out on this one. I've heard some good and bad. Those upsells really get my goat. Unless your a total newbie, I think its better to save your money for the actual banner ad campaign. If they included some software on banner design then what would be more useful. All those videos and Ebooks telling you stuff you can find out for free, or requiring you to spend more money on the "secret killer" upsell before you even start are a real piss take.
