Phillip Mansour's Confidential Conversions

129 replies
Has anybody bought this yet? I bought his other product Zero Friction Marketing and didn't get much out of it. This looks good, but am a bit skeptical after ZFM.

    I too bought ZFM and was very disappointed with it. Just videos of him talking about theory with no real WORKED examples of anything.

    Best person I have found recently that does appear to be showing EVERYTHING and WORKED examples is Chris Farrell's membership site. Appears a genuine guy - unlike the normal marketers who are sleazy and dishonest.

    Presumably this is PPV - does anybody know for sure?

    I really don't need to be taught about PPV again!

      It does say the following right under the heading:

      Hint: The Secret's NOT The "Content Network", Facebook, Banners, Or PPV...

      So therefore its unlikely to be PPV

        I saw a detailed review of this product here:

        Confidential Conversions Review

        The review said the course includes a secret seo technique.

        Wonder what it is?

            UPDATE June 4th:

            Hey guys, TKBoy101 here...

            Just updating you on the course so far. I've just got accepted into MaxBounty CPA Network (one he recommends) and I'll probably begin promoting via PPC on Monday or so.

            I just finished watching Phill make his first profits on a brand new campaign right before my eyes. He set up a brand new PPC account, and a brand new CPA account, to simulate being a newbie.. I love his tactics for teaching. He shows snippets of 48, 24 and 12 hours to show you how his campaigns are running, and his ROI broke even by day two.

            He provides his new members with a coupon code to get $50.00 in free ad credits to start out, so you can possibly see money before you have to dish out your own hard-earned money.

            As for Conversion Exchange, I applied, heard nothing from them... I don't really care, because I'm a part of MaxBounty now.

            BTW, Phill doesn't go into getting approved for CPA networks in this course. BUT I found a free report that helped me get accepted into my FIRST CPA network, Max Bounty within ONE HOUR of applying. It's called CPAPassport. Just go to cpapassport.com... You'll have to put in an email, but I just unsubscribed when I got the report.

            I read it LAST NIGHT, applied for MaxBounty today and within the HOUR, I got accepted. I'm a noob, guys... but I got into this CPA without lying, cheating or doing anything BlueFart. I was approved right on the phone.

            TIP: Contact your potential CPA Network's Affiliate Manager BEFORE they contact you--make it known to them that you are EAGER to start, this will boost credibility and possibility for being accepted.

            until next time,

                trsat,

                No problem!

                I just know what I'm personally looking for when I go to the Warrior Forums for a comprehensive, in depth review before I buy a product. So, that's what I provide. I've been trying to make money online for a year to no avail. But maybe this is the light at the end of the tunnel?

                I'll keep you updated.

              Hi TKBoy101, congrats for getting into MaxBounty. Its one of the top 20 networks in the world along with Hydra and Copeac. Not easy to get into. I myself got in only after the 2nd time of application, talking to their AM. Didn't know there is such an effective report on this. Well...

              Anyway, thanks for all the updates so far. The product looks a bit more promising from your updates, although the support seems to be worrying. Can't imagine waiting 2-3days just to get a product after purchasing it :confused:

              I've signed up with several platforms. I need a good cpa network. That CPAPASSPORT.com site is no longer available. I applied to MaxBounty but I'm a noob and mentioned that I am a CC student. So until I get a cpa network membership I'm not sure what is worth promoting. Any ideas?

                I bought this along with one of the upsells.

                The upsell is a series of web pages which are not written in English. Apparently you have to get someone to translate and rewrite them..WHAT?

                Also you are supposed to receive monthly campaigns to use. This was not there and they only sent it when I emailed them.

                There are no instructions for the upsell at all.

                Also there is no option to cancel the monthly subscription to the upsell.

                As for the main product I have not tested it yet, but I would like to know how you can make so much money on CPA networks using PPC. As far as I can tell these CPA networks payout small amounts and offsetting that against the monthly spend on PPC, it would appear you would make a massive loss. I would have thought promoting a Clickbank product would give a better return.

              Yes, I always contact them before they contact me. I even managed
              to avoid phone calls from some networks just by e-mailing them &
              telling them straight up about my promotion methods. If you be honest
              and convince them that you're the real deal, they'll accept you.

    Fellow Warriors,

    I bought CC yesterday along with the webinar series. When I go to the CC membership site the only product I have access to are the "monthly webinar series"!

    I have yet been able to receive the main modules:

    Module 1: Network Traffic Reconnaissance

    Module 2: Mobile Match Maker

    Module 3: Artifically Organic

    Is there anyone else having the same problems as me??? I have sent 2 emails to philip requesting assistance and no response!!!

    It's funny how I keep getting email promotions to my email about purchasing CC. What the hell!!!

        Hi Charles,

        Thanks for the feedback! I sent Philip another email letting him know that if this isn't fixed by C.O.B. today I was going to get my refund through Clickbank. If I'm able to get access to product before C.O.B. I will let you know! Thanks!

      ( I can't post e-mail addresses yet but the support e-mail its a g mail account with the course name in it). I bought the course last night and had the same problem. This morning I received a reply from the support team giving me a password and user name, and I was able to access the course.

      Hi ValVarga,

      Sorry to hear you are in the same boat as us! I can't believe that we are having problems accessing the main product.

      Philip Monsour is a reputable marketer in my opinion. I purchased Zero Friction a while back and I was making $$$ the next day on MSN PPC.

      His support techs need to hurry up and fix this before he has a lot of REFUNDS!

    hummm, secret untapped traffic networks that he found through lots of losses that he is willing to reveal to you for only $77 ...because an affiliate network is picking up the tab....gimme a break.....maybe the product has some tidbits but ill play the skeptic.....must admit though the sales page is worth putting in my good sales copy folder...

    serioulsy almost all these clickbank internet marketing info products are the same.....flashy sales pages offering same landing page template emphasizing Easy, Secret Free Traffic, No Work,etc..with special act now prices that show 3 prices reductions,etc..if they have high gravity in clickbank in the internet marketing section nowadays it doesnt mean its necessarily popular because its good but simply its because its offering good payouts and being pushed hard by joint venture affiliates. ewen chia's recent fast track cash product is another example - same sales page funner template,etc... the last product i saw by him regarding autoblogging i actually read and it was awful....

      Alright, guys... I think I'm gonna go for it.
      I'm going in!!! --Cover me!

      In all seriousness... I'm desperate. Really. I NEED to make money online. Sure, I don't mind having a 9-5 job for a while while I pursue this.. but the dreams I have for my life and the way I want to live, I cannot see come to fruition any other way.

      I'll keep you posted, guys. Plus, there's a 100% money-back guarantee, so if I don't like it, I'll just ask for my money back. But, it looks like if I take some action with this thing, and apply what's inside, I could be making profits by next week. Expect a response by around then.

      Also, something else that got me on this, was that it's BRAND NEW. I'm signing up NOW, because in the past, I'd buy something that's like a year old, and it doesn't work. I'm getting in while it's hot, and still functional.

      PS:

      Wish me luck, guys... I'm off to buy it. By the way, I know there are THREE upsells inside. I'm not going to buy any of them. I'm doing the bare-bones program. If it works, I'll let you know. --I'll let you know either way.

      Thanks,

        Good news guys... I just got in... took me like 5 minutes, and I have access to everything they promised. Again, I did NOT buy into any of the upsells. I think if this is a quality product, it SHOULD deliver! I shouldn't need anything else to make it complete.

        I'll keep you update.

  • Thanks in advance guys, for sharing about the product after you bought. Really wanna know whether it works or its just another hyped up overpromised CB product. I was sent the email from Sniper guru GeorgeB.

    To be honest, its almost inconceivable that the owner will share something so good for $57-77. He will be 100times better off scooping up the golden traffic by himself than inviting more competitors into his 'territory'. It just doesn't make sense.

    I really like to believe what the sales page promise but my brain tells me otherwise. Its not so much an issue that there is a money back guarantee but more about precious time wasted trying another useless product. You guys' sharing of experience in applying the product content will be very valuable in helping folks like me. Thanks again.

      I bought the product.

      Bad news:

      IMO there are no "untapped", "hidden", or "underground" traffic sources revealed in this product.

      Good news:

      The course itself is pretty good.

        I'd have to agree and disagree. While some of these resources have been around for years, I'm sure... for newbies like us, it can be REALLY easy to get started and get in--as if they had never been "tapped."

        He makes it clear inside the course that these things are not NEW, but they are "like-new." Know what I mean? For people like you and me, they will be new and pretty dang revealing. I personally haven't heard of ANY of the ad platforms (save one).

        The use of the sales copy language is obviously a little hypey here. But just as eholmlund said, yes, it's a good product.

        **Crossing my fingers!**

          I wasn't trying to direct anyone to my aff link, but I can see why it looked that way. I've seen it written by other warriors that it's not OK to simply paste your blog posts, and I didn't want to rewrite my review when I already took the time to write one for my blog.

        Hi eholmlund, I read your review on your blog and I've got a question that I hope you can help out. How in depth does the owner goes into teaching people in using those PPC networks? He gives demonstration on setting up campaigns on each of those networks as you said but, besides that does he share any intermediate or advanced techniques for those same networks?

        Thanks in advance.

          Thanks in advance.
          He does cover what I would consider to be some intermediate techniques, such as keyword gathering, geo-targeting, and ad tracking. IMO he does not cover advanced techniques, but I think that's OK for this course.

      To be honest, its almost inconceivable that the owner will share something so good for $57-77. He will be 100times better off scooping up the golden traffic by himself than inviting more competitors into his 'territory'. It just doesn't make sense.

      I really like to believe what the sales page promise but my brain tells me otherwise. Its not so much an issue that there is a money back guarantee but more about precious time wasted trying another useless product. You guys' sharing of experience in applying the product content will be very valuable in helping folks like me. Thanks again.
      Hey bro, it's my pleasure.
      Honestly, I just got inside about an hour ago, and I have to say, I'm actually pretty impressed. I'd hate to refund this thing--but I promised myself I would if I don't make any money with it. And watching the videos, it's quite apparent that this whole thing can handle more 'competition.'

      The PPC prices inside this thing, with MULTIPLE ad networks and platforms, are unbelievably low. I've never even heard of a few of these platforms, and yet they get millions of visitors on a daily basis. --NUTS! How did I never see these?

      I would have named this course, "Slide-Of-Hand Profits." Because while everyone is stuck on Google, trying to SEO for Google, get PPC ads on Google, etc. there's all the underground stuff going on right underneath it all. Now I'm GLAD there's so much competition in Google! While everyone sits mesmerized at the mystery that is Google, the little guys like us can go in and make a secret fortune ourselves.

      Now, let's not get carried away. I've only watched the first few videos. And my above review is based on Phill's product SO FAR. I have not made a dime yet--because I haven't even TRIED yet.

      BTW, I bought this thing through George Brown's affiliate link too. The $100.00 in free ad credit appealed to me... although, I don't know how to receive that. I just sent him a support email asking for details.

          Seems like once again, as too many times before, a product with a lot of hype and a lot more missing information.

          Honestly, I feel like I've tried everything. Everything.

          The good thing is that in the end ultimately people will be funneled back into the duplicatable systems that DO work, and with time WILL generate a stable residual income. To rephrase it, it means more business and more income coming my way. Having spent thousands and thousands of dollars the last few years, I do understand the thrill of purchasing a new toy and hoping it works well...but I think I've finally matured a bit.

          Oh yea, I did purchase Phil's CC myself. Before I get into that, I want to say I really lose a lot of respect for some of these internet "gurus" that I previously subscribed to. Especially since they are making 7 or even 8 figures a year, why the hell are they promoting these clickbank offers every other day which they haven't even tried? Do they not worry at all about losing their credibility by promoting every nice looking offer with high gravity?

          I'm not knocking on anyone, but my point here is that I believe in diversifying your portfolio. I do dabble in CPA and niche blogging with EPN, amazon, etc...but my favorite one is a gradually compounding IM business that is now 95% on autopilot, and the easy duplication is what makes it grow. While that is going on, I have a nice little budget to mess around with new ideas to see if I can add to it.

          That is a path I recommend to everyone as well...I've done offline MLM for many years before jumping into IM, and no matter how good a product or comp plan was, success and failure for a rep depended on

          1) Do they have the gungho sales attributes to succeed? something like only 5% of the people on this world do.

          2) Is there a system in place that favors easy duplication down the line?

          Even if I was a crazy top producing sales type (which I was), my recruits struggled. The great thing about my steadily growing IM business is that you don't need to be that type to succeed.

          Sorry if I digressed a bit, but I felt compelled to share that...CPA is what it is, at times I feel like all CPA is unethical, I feel like "dang it, am I becoming one of those spammers that promote these FREE iP*ds" and taking advantage of the ignorant searchers? You will earn in CPA, but it is not the most stable of IM incomes.

          Anyway, I have a few campaigns up and running in some of Phil's recommended networks, I'll post results later.

          Pm or email me at kyle.works.from.home@gmail.com if anyone is interested in buckling down to make a good stable full time income using the internet in about 2 years. Sounds too slow? Pass on by, my friend. Easy overnight riches? Maybe next time!

    If you think making money with ppc is as easy as simply going with less popular networks, then think again. Not that easy I am afraid.

      I'm fine with you not ordering through my affiliate link though. If I can make money with this, I'm throwing out all my ebooks on affiliate marketing the way I've been going about it.

          I'm a total PPC newb... so, for me, this was a good product. However, I still haven't made any money because I haven't even tried it yet.

          But for anyone who already knows of a few PPC platforms, just pass it up. Although, some of the upsells may be of interest for you.

    I too got the program, and I can't see anything in the member area. I was sent an email saying I still need to pay, when I already paid and have the CB receipt. I emailed support twice (both Gmail accounts), and I have received nothing back.

    All I can do it login, and subscribe to his mailing list. However, if I try to subscribe, it wants me to pay another $77 bux. Anyone have this same issue? They need to iron out their bugs on this program.

      Apparently he's having some issues with Amember. It appears to me that in many cases Amember is failing to receive the IPN which verifies the payment. This is a little weird, as I've used Amember with Clickbank and almost never see that problem. My advice would be to make sure you give his support dept your Clickbank receipt #, then be willing to wait 1-2 business days as they are probably inundated with similar requests.

      I'm pretty sure that's the case, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. But maybe Philip can come on here and verify.

    UPDATE:

    So I have had this product for about 20 hours now... So far I like it. Today, I just got an email from Phill to get me $50.00 in free ad credits, so I'll probably go for that too. I haven't made any money...

    AGAIN: Because I haven't even put anything into practice yet. But like I said, I'll keep you updated. The whole thing seems pretty straight forward and simple. I mean, you need visitors, and you need your visitors to input their info into a CPA... easy right?

    I have concluded from reading other threads and blog posts, that it's probably a good idea to stay away from promoting campaigns for products that people have to buy. Stick with CPA in these methods, and you'll probably do very well.

    After all, what kind of a person looking for free ring tones wouldn't put their email into a text area to get free ring tones? Am I right?

      Could you mention a bit about the affiliate network that members get access to without an interview? Is it really an exclusive network that is usually hard to get in (like it says in the sales letter)? I'm still trying to decide whether this is something useful to me. Thanks.

        Hey bro... the "underground" cpa network is called Conversion Exchange... Not sure, because it looks fairly new. And, so far, I haven't gotten in yet. I submitted an application this afternoon, no reply yet. I don't even understand how it works for him, because I didn't see like any "affiliate" name or anything inside the URL. It was just the straight URL address...

        I'll keep you updated though. I'll shoot off an email to Phill asking him about this whole thing.

              You sound very sure about it. How do you know that it is the case?. It is not clear from his salespage. Are you already a member of the network ?

                I figured it was his because on the download page there's no aff link to it,
                it's a straight link.

                This product is actually pretty good btw.

                I'm picking up some new stuff and that really doesn't happen very often
                nowadays.

                I've got to test whether it actually delivers a ROI, but on paper the
                content is solid.

                I like this kid, he's got smarts and he takes action.

              Hi Buddy!
              I am still trying to get accepted into this particular CPA network (Conversion Exchange) at this point in time: (I have already submitted two separate applications to join them. I must say that Philip Mansour's and Saj P's products sound quite promising on the face value. I think these guys maybe do have a fairly good slant on how to actually start making money online (for a comfortably affordable and relatively modest cash outlay), so I am looking into what they are doing online, both together and separately with great interest. I actually bought Saj's ZFM product, (and I still have it all right here on my pc as I speak) I requested a refund and got my money back IN FULL without any problem whatsoever. I thought that I foresaw (rightly or wrongly) some possible difficulties in getting myself accepted into any of the CPA networks when I started trying to follow along with the zfm course, and so I requested and got a full refund from Clickbank, graciously and without ANY problems whatsoever!! (I have been a war-room member of the Warrior Forum for a good many months now, and I have NEVER gotten around to making a post here YET!! Can you BELIEVE that, guys?? IT's TRUE!! (But NOW I've decided it's time to make my mark here and start entering some threads and putting some posts on here, so I can finally start to make my presence felt and and noticed here.

              Anyway, to get back to the subject of "Confidential Conversions" by Phil Mansour: My own "gut-feeling" here at this particular point in time (although this may change yet) is that this guy is able to be reasonably well trusted. I have just recently bought this course myself (this Confidential Conversions), and I think this Phil Mansour is on the level about helping his students to be able to make some money by using PPC and CPA offers: There is just something about him (in my own personal opinion) that seems to make him stand out to me somehow from all the rest of the marketers out there. He doesn't come across to me as trying to BS you and you can see with his style of teaching and training in his videos that he just seems to straight out tell you everything like it is, without holding anything back or leaving you in the dark about any of the important things you really need to know, to be able to make his teachings and his instructions work. (At least, I hope so, otherwise I will be requesting another refund -from him)!
              I am still a relative "newbie" to all of this. I am also actually a current member of the CHRIS FARRELL MEMBERSHIP, and I have learned quite a few helpful and useful skills from him, but I have to say that "confidential conversions" looked and sounded tempting enough to persuade me to gamble my $57 to sign up for it. However, until I've had time to put it to the test to see if it can make me any money online (instead of just wishing I could) the "Jury is still out" about that. I HAVE been quite busy over the last several days setting up all my accounts (which he wants you to sign up for) with the different PPC platforms and also trying to get signed up with one of his own "underground" CPA networks (Conversion Exchange) while making my way through the first two parts of his step-by-step training videos, and so far I haven't really been finding any problems with any of it to speak of (except for Clicksor). Clicksor sent me an email implying they didn't like my site, so unfortunately they couldn't 'approve' my application but I HAVE been getting accepted into the other things he has said to sign up with (such as ASK.COM) in the course, so I am going to stick with it for the next few weeks at least and see what happens.

              I won't go on saying too much more about it right now, because I have to get back to following the steps in all his training videos, (which is going to take quite some time yet) but I will keep you all posted on how this goes for ME from this point onwards. (What I mean by this is that I will let you know if this course actually DOES start enabling ME to make any money online myself when I start actually implementing it, or if it just leaves me with a stressful and costly Pay Per Click bill, without seeing any returns on my investment). And hey, Guys, Please Believe me when I say that if I can make money online with this course (when I actually start putting it to the test for real) - then, I can assure you absolutely 100% without any shadow of a doubt, that anybody can!

              Anyway, I will keep you all informed. And by the way, I was able to access everything in the course without any problem at all, as soon as I made my payment through my paypal account. And I ignored all the irritating upsells along the way. (It could just be that it makes quite a difference as to which particular affiliate link you personally happened to sign up through when you made your payment, or which URL you used. I can only say that I didn't experience any problems whatsoever with accessing any of his course material once I had paid my $57 .

              I hope you guys all found this post to be both helpful and interesting. I will make another post about my own experiences with this in due course, so watch this space.

              Kindest regards and best wishes to you all, and wishing you all the very greatest of good luck in your respective efforts to make money online.

              Gary Wynder

              I was having troubles with my members access as well, but I got an email from support team saying it was because one of the discount links was messed up with the Amember conversion... something technical I didn't really understand.

              But I did get my username and password... so far I'm diggin it, although I heard of a few of the networks he shows you, but never actually used them. Good stuff IMO.

    Conversion exchange IS Phil network and it's been open for about 6mths now but it's not open to the public. He'll send a link to the sign up page fill it out then one of his managers will get back to you with an email to fill out to tell a little bit about your qualifications. It's a pretty good network all the ads have all been tested already. You can get in if you purchase B.A.B, Go to (2nd link in sig.box) banner ads and if you purchase it (GREAT COURSE) hit me up with a message and either i'll hit Phil up and let him know or i'll walk you through the sign up process

      There are 3 upsells, you do not need to get them to make the course work, and you do not need them to join the CPA network.

      BTW, I still haven't received any reply for my email I sent to them a few days ago, which is a bit dissapointing. But hey....

    I'm turning into a bit of a fan of this Philip guy, I really am enjoying this
    content, I'm giving it a thumbs up and people could do far worse than
    buy this.

    I am having a bit of a LOL moment at the moment however , I'm watching
    PM discuss the quality of articles added to his Google slap proof site and
    wondering if he's actually read them.

    They look spun, some of the pages are absolutely awful, they don't even
    make sense, Phillip says he pays up to $15 per article for that site and they
    are BAD.

    I'm presuming he's so busy he doesn't actually proof read the content he
    gets back from his Odesk/Elance writers.

    Perhaps if one of his friends is in the thread, they could give him a heads up.

    I don't want to link to the site here, as he obviously want's that kept
    confidential but dam, it really does look on some of the pages like low grade
    spun content.

    The content needs seriously proof reading and re-doing.

    Hey guys,

    Does his course talk about driving traffic to your own products using networks or just CPA stuff where you make money within CPA networks?

    I'm interesting in finding traffic sources I can use for my own product.

        Thanks Simon for the answer. Are those second tier PPC engines worth considering as far as traffic goes? Obviously, it depends on the keywords and market.

        Have you used them? If there were some nuggets as far as this strategy goes, I would be interested in buying the course.

          Yeah, worth considering for sure, it's just stuff like 7 search etc,
          nothing that isn't known as such but he goes into quite a lot
          of depth on how to set things up in them etc.

          There's traffic in em, not even in the same stratosphere as Google
          but still traffic for sure.

          I don't really use them but I am just transferring a Google campaign
          of mine to every network he has , just as a test.

    I got Confidential Conversions a couple of days ago and had no problem accessing the main videos about advertising on 2nd tier search engines like Ask.com, 7search, AdKnowledge and Miva. I thought these videos were much better than other's Phillip did like Zero Friction Marketing. Biggest problem I've having is I want to sign up for a advertising account at Ask.com and cannot find a direct link where I can create an account. All account creation links goes to "Contact Sales" and has a contact form. I don't want to contact the sales dept... I just want to create a self serve advertsing account at Ask.com and see if the clicks are as cheap and conversions are as good as Phillip says so I can test this out. I did fill out the "Contact Sales" form but it will probably be days until they get back to me due to tons of people trying to sign up. Anyone have a signup link at Ask.com?

        Hi all

        Ok... well I bit the bullet just so I could check it out for my subscribers.

        I must say the tactic to offer it cheaper for procrastinators is something I don't like and usually that would be enough to turn me off the product but I wanted to get in and see what it was really like. So naturally I took the cheaper option. Having said this, if I had not discovered this before buying, I would have been quite disappointed and I personally don't believe this is a good tactic for any vendor because it a) generates distrust amongst your best customers (those who buy immediately) and b) makes you question if the product was REALLY worth $77 anyhow when the vendor is happy to offer it for $57. (By the by... in a recent poll of my subscribers, 79% sent they "hated that type of tactic with a passion")

        Anyhow... moving on....

        I did not purchase any of the THREE upsells. (In fact I didn't even bother to read them properly to be honest). If the product is not good enough to stand on its own without upsells then I won't recommend it to my subscribers because if you need something else to be successful with it, then it should be included in the main product (IMHO).

        FIRST IMPRESSIONS: there is not a lot there once you get access. Just a bunch of videos and the 2 hour Master Plan... however that was what was stated on the sales page (so I shouldn't really be expecting more I guess.) I had no issues in accessing the product immediately after my purchase but have yet to sit down and watch the videos.

        I AM however still looking for the link to signup to the Guaranteed Acceptance CPA network he promised on the sales page as quoted below:

        "I'll set up a special link that'll make sure anybody you're coaching can get right into our network – no interview, no wait.

        And it gets better – because not only do you get immediate back-door access to a network that's very selective about the affiliates they let in… with none of the hoops everybody else has to jump through…"


        It's possible though that it is there, I just haven't found it yet.

        Anyone who has purchased and found it... could they perhaps point me in the right direction? (Obviously I don't need the actual link but what page do I find it on in the members' area or in which video?) Sounds like it would be quicker than contacting support by the looks of this thread.

        All in all - if I manage to get clicks at the prices he claims this will be well worth the $57 spend... but time will tell.

        I'll report back as I delve further into the program.

    This is an honest review and i haven't read any of the previous replies.

    I have gone through the entire program including the up-sells and let me tell you there is nothing revolutionary. He has arranged everything properly and the product is very newbie friendly. Everything he teaches can be easily found in the WF.You just need to search and take some time to read.

    Initially,i liked the product because he showed some new advertising sources. When i researched more,i found out that the traffic sources were definitely untapped for a reason - the sites he shows us don't really send that much of a traffic. Anyone looking for cheap advertising sources,techniques,tracking,some old SEO Tricks etc will find the product useful. But, for most warriors who are already making money,don't bother spending money on this.

    Bottom Line : Newbies,Definitely buy this thing to start with both free and paid methods.
    You will surely make money with this.He will guide you through entire process,which is very useful for you.
    For advance guys,Don't waste your valuable time.

    Also,he is young and he doesn't care about rapport,trust etc. He will never get back to you and your email. Customer support is the most important thing and he will learn it the hard way.

    Cheers,
    Apo

  • Profile picture of the author apocrypha
    @Troy
    He recommends us to use many advertising sources and the whole product is about making money not using the big dogs.

    I did some research and found out that he recommends what Gauher Chaudhary was teaching but i didn't know first time around. I searched about the ad networks in WF as well and lots of warriors said that the ad sources he tells just suck and the traffic volume is not worth spending time on.If you have bought the product,just do some research yourself on the ad sources and you will know. It seems that lots of Warriors have bought his stuff and ad networks he recommends are being discussed here by many and the threads are currently active and hot.

    I don't think i should be saying this..But,more than one whole module of his product is, logging into his account,telling us how to signup and showing how to use the dashboard and showing us how to create campaigns. These info are available in the help section itself.

    Has anyone found the "Guaranteed and Instant Acceptance CPA" yet?

    QUOTE FROM HIS SALES PAGE: "I'll set up a special link that'll make sure anybody you're coaching can get right into our network – no interview, no wait.

    And it gets better – because not only do you get immediate back-door access to a network that's very selective about the affiliates they let in… with none of the hoops everybody else has to jump through…"


    Closest I have come is this on the main page in the members' area

    "However, if you feel you that you are semi "New" then sign up for the CPA Network below, and once you go through their application funnel then you will probably get accepted. This network is really tough on fraudsters and Non Action Takers.. so if you sign up - make sure you take action immediately, or else you'll be kicked out fast."

    Looks like yet another "latest and greatest release" that I can't bring myself to promote to my subscribers :-(

    I bought the product and was looking forward to trying a campaign, at least on 'Ask'.
    I had the same suspicions as you though.

    Personally I was disappointed with the bonus because none of it is in English and I was told by support I would need to get someone to re-write it. Well I got Clickbank to unsubscribe me from this monthly bonus product.

    Also I don't know how someone can make money from CPA via Adwords, even on a cheap network.

      I started the post and didn't even end up buying the product. I decided to take a $1 trial on PPC-Coach and use the rest to buy traffic instead. I started with 7search and have to say I've gotten good results.

      There isn't a ton of volume, so you'll have to do lots of campaigns rather than volume,but it does convert.

        I too purchased this a few days ago just to see what his so called "secret traffic sources" were. I'm not totally disappointed as it was pretty much exactly what I expected to see.

        I was hoping to just figure out which of the second tier engines are giving the best conversions so I can put my efforts into them and not waste any time or money testing ones that don't work as well.

        Adknowledge is the only one I hadn't already heard. Although, I did enjoy the video about MIVA. I have been playing around with the MIVA keyword tool and if the estimated searches per month and CPC data it is giving me is correct I can see some real potential there. I'll just have to test to find out. As for 7search - I've already been using that one for several months and it converts pretty well. Not a ton of traffic but worth using for sure.

        In my opinion this course is not horrible but it is definitely geared towards those who are newer to PPC and it is also missing the one component that can make or break you when using these second tier networks.

        Unlike Google, Yahoo, or Bing where you know where your ad is showing, with most 2nd tier networks your ad is being spread accross 100's if not thousands of "search partners"

        Some of those search partners or feeds will send quality traffic and some will straight up send you hundreds of clicks and blow your daily budget in less than a hour with no conversions. (this has happened to me several times on ask.com and others) It sucks, but it will inevitably happen to you on these lesser PPC networks so be prepared. Always set your daily budgets to something low like 10 or 20 dollars when testing.

        The key is to be able to identify which search partner is sending you all this bad traffic so you can call the PPC network and get them to block that particular search feed from your account. Only by tracking and weeding out the bad partners will you be able to get a campaign profitable on many of these second tier PPC networks.

        Unfortunately, Phil doesn't even mention this. All he talks about is using the conversion pixel for tracking, which is great and I recommend it, but the converion pixel won't give you the data for which search partners are sending you traffic. You need to pass the partner feeds in the subids of your affiliate links or use tracking 202 or something.

        To do this in either ask.com or looksmart.com is very simple. You just need to append the {feed} variable into the subids of your affiliate links.

        example:

        http://www.affiliatelink.com?subid={feed}

        Then watch your subid report in the affiliate network and you will start seeing a bunch of numbers like so:

        65985
        56952
        65986
        65215
        4255

        When you see a specific number that has tons of clicks and no conversions well, I think you can figure out what needs to take place after that.

        After you identify the bad partners and block them then you can focus on which keywords are converting and which aren't

        There is a ton of traffic out their amongst many of the second tier PPC networks, but you have to be able and wiling to track and analyze better because their is also a lot of fraudulent traffic that needs to be cleaned up before you will start seeing any profits.

        I am slightly shocked, but not really surprised that he failed to make a point about this in his course. Had it been me creating this course I would have dedicated at least an entire video just to talking about how to monitor and clean up the traffic.

        Luckily, I have been a member of Gauher Chaudry's PPC formula for some time now and honestly he teaches how to use these second tier networks in a much more concise and cautionary manner. Unfortunately though his course is not currently open to the public, so I felt the need to pass on some of the insights into these networks that Phil so blatantly choose to leave out.

          John this is awesome advice!! Do you know if the feed variable works with 7Search as well? I've been using the ###KEYWORD### for the SubID which tells you which keywords are converting, but I didn't know you could do the feed command to tell which sites are converting.

            Unfortunately, 7search is one of the few that do not have the ability to block specific partners. I use tracking 202 and am able to see the sites that my ads are showing on and which are converting, however this info is worthless with them because if you call and ask their system doesn't have the capability to block sites like some of the others. Maybe some day they will add this, but for now the ###KEYWORD### is the only varaible you have control over.

            Also the {feed} variable isn't and all inclusive parameter for every network. It works for ask.com and looksmart, but others you just have to call and figure out if they can block sites and do they pass a feed somehow. For example, MIVA doesn't pass a feed parameter, but using tracking202 I can see the domain referrers and the rep at MIVA said they can block sites if I give them the domains.

            So every ad network is going to be different. You just have to call them up and really get them to dissect how their system works and what levels of control you have as an advertiser.

          approved by Ask ? I'm still waiting 3 days later.

            I wish you the best in your endeavors.
            Thanks, appreciate the reply. Exactly what's a split test? I'm guessing it's running some kind of parallel campaigns.

              Split Testing is when you are testing multiple campaigns to see which one performs better and converts your clicks into $$$$$$. To keep it simple, lets say you create 1 campaign with 2 ads. You optimize each ad differently to see which one performs better. Then you get rid of the poor performing ad and rewrite a new ad to try to out perform the one that's performing good. I strongly recommend you buy "Ultimate Guide To Google Adwords" written by Mr. PPC Genius Perry Marshall. If you follow what he tells you in his book, you will receive a lot of clicks. Doesn't mean you're going to make $$$$. It all depends how you are marketing direct linking or via landing page, how well written the salescopy is written etc.... You can buy the book at a book store near you like books a millions and barnes and nobles! I paid $24 and it's well worth it. Comes with great examples and secret tips to raise your CTR's! I hope this helps!

                  Mike, One thing I failed to mention was that the most important thing in PPC is adding tracking urls per keyword to see which one is making you the $$$$$$$. I wish you the best!

            Most don't know that it's possible and that is why I feel that many will ultimately fail with Phil's advice. He really should have talked about this.

            Anyways...

            I'm sorry but i do not remember how long it took to get my ask.com account. It was quite awhile ago when I tested them for the first time (with no success).

            I have recently in the last few months decided to give them another try, but my results even with tracking the partner ideas have not been good. That's why a part of me is really having a hard time believing that Phil is really doing so well with ask.

            And I am not alone in struggling with ask.com and their bogus traffic partners. Over in the PPC Formula fourm their is a thread about Confidential Conversions in which ask.com was mentioned and Gauher Chaudrey stated that he has gotten things profitable on ask but then every month when they ad new search partners into the mix everything goes south.

            My response to him was:

            "I have had similar experience except it usually only lasts a few days before some renegade partner shows up and causes me to hit my daily budget in the first hour or two and then I have to pause the campaign as it has always taken a full day or two to even get in contact with anyone about it. And then of course is the usual we can't block it because it's in our core network so I just give up.

            So basically from what you've said and my own experiences it seems like they are just a waste of time. I mean I don't expect my campaigns on any network to run forever, but I at least want to able to milk them for several months or more before they start to fizzle out."


            So personally I myself am not a big fan of ask.com. That doesn't mean I won't try them again in the future, because things do change and maybe I've just never hiot the right vertical with them. But for know, I have had the best success using 7search and looksmart.

            I just got my first campaigns approved at MIVA today. Got like 350 clicks in 3 hours. Got a few conversions. Almost breaking even. Looking at my tracking reports though I can see alot of multiple clicks from the same IP address within the same minute so there is definitely some click fraud going on there, but I've got the IPs and referrers and hopefully they will be willing to work with me at keeping that to a minimum. Well see.

              Cheers John, you've been extremely helpful.

              What's surprising me here iis that they actually count clicks from the same IP
              as chargeable.

              Seems like even the most basic of click fraud prevention, ie chargable clicks
              only from unique IP's should be implemented.

                Well...

                The exact number of clicks I was charged for is a little less than those in my reports so I think they are catching some of them, but definitely not all. I think it may be due to the fact that i'll get 4 clicks from the same ip in the same minute, but they will be spread acrross four different domains or search partners.

                Many times these search partner sites are owned or operated by the same entity and they probably have "click shops" over in india or somewhere where they just hire people to click on different ads all day.

                or...

                maybe it's some sort of "click software" they have designed. I mean 4 clicks from the same IP only seconds apart, acroos multiple domains/referrers and all the same keyword.

                That's clearly something fishy. :rolleyes:

    I didn't get a link or welcome email after buying Confidential Conversions. Sent a couple emails and it was 2 days b4 they responded with link and login info.

    So there is definitely somthing wrong with there system.

    Have started watching videos, bought 2 OTO's. As Eric says, there might not be any new stuff, FOR HIM but for the rest of us it looks very good.

    The problem with his system is that it takes $$ to advertise and many here don't have that much to invest with the economy as it is...wife is losing her teaching job

    I have to say that if you want the cheapest clicks I've been using LeadImpact which start clicks at .02 or less! It works differently than PPC but reviewing the faqs and possibly buying Rapid Mass Traffic will show you exactly how to do this.

    I have been able to create a profitable campaign yet...but will as I learn.

    it is more than just direct linking to a CPA offer as RMT says.

    More on it later, hopefully good news.

      Hey guys, just an update.

      So, I've been getting a TON of emails from those who haven't been able to reach the member's area. I must apologize, because I no longer have a solution. The previous solution worked because the member's area was open to the general public if you knew the direct URL. But now, it's locked and only forwards to the sign in page.

      My suggestion for anyone wanting to get inside...

      Email support (you can email me for this email if you're a member and don't know the support email) or email clickbank... OR request a refund.

      It's unprofessional to take someone's money and make them wait for days, keeping them guessing before they can even get access to the product. Just saying.

      Don't get me wrong, this is a fantastic product for anyone wanting to get started in a low budget PPC campaign. But seriously... it is reasonable to expect what the sales page says you'll get: instant access.

      Thanks guys...

      Also, if anyone needs help getting accepted into your first CPA Network, I'm glad to help. Again, my email address is teesniper@gmail.com

      I love helping you guys, it makes me feel good. lol.

      I got accepted into my FIRST CPA Network I ever applied for, within the first hour of applying. It was SO easy. --And I'm a total Noob (with a capital "N")

    I have just bought this product with a view to getting started this week. I thought that the guaranteed entrance into Conversions Exchange would be a good insurance to get accepted into a CPA network. I am going to start with MaxBounty to begin with as that should be quite easy to get into as well from what I have read on this forum and possibly using PM as a referrer.

    I signed up through PM's link so got 20 campaigns sent to me the weekend which PM says are making money. With 20 campaigns to spread over 4 or 5 platforms that should keep me busy for a while. I was also sent an action plan over the weekend from PM so shall try to follow that as closely as possible.

    I want to avoid the mistake of signing up to too many CPA networks to begin with and not make use of them and then get kicked off for lack of use.

    I shall be interested to know how everyone else in the WF who has bought CC gets on. I am hoping this will prove to be my first real success and making some profit from affiliate marketing.

          I have purchased Confidential Conversions and their support has been good,had response within couple of hours but not answering some of my questions.
          In regards to Ask.com approving your application it does take quite a while,over a week depending on how many applications they have.

          The major problem i have had is getting hold of Philip Mansour on skype.He has given a skype address to get people started on CPA but can't get hold of him.

          In regards to PPC network i have tried Miva and got over 200 clicks but not one conversion.Yes i need to split test.Can someone explain how to do this in very simple terms as i have never tried it.

      For anyone having support issues - given that the product creator will not reply to emails, I recommend going directly to Clickbank and using their support desk. If you don't wish to request a refund right away, you can use their support desk to get the vendor to respond.

      Here's the link you'll need.

      - ClickBank

      Just enter your receipt number and email address and follow the prompts.

      Hope this helps and good luck! Fortunately I got straight in - mind you, I didn't purchase any upsells.

      So far, I'm not overly impressed but I'll reserve judgment until I've had a better look through all the videos.

      I am relativelly inexperienced in this IM thing. I purchased Confidential Conversions because it seemed an economical way to employ PPC. (I didn't buy any upsells.)

      Here is my experience for what it's worth.
      1. Bought the product a week ago.
      2. Initially I couldn't access the product. I had to send four emails before I got a response ( a one-liner, no apologies - miffed me a bit - I'm a sensitive soul).
      3. I signed up for Ask, Miva, Adknowledge and 7search almost immediately. I still haven't heard from Ask and the Campaign I set up on creating my MIVA account is still waiting approval.
      4. 7search account was up and running immediately. (Unfortunately). Lots of clicks but no conversions (not even a single order form impression). Money draining from the account like a sieve (I've already received an email telling me I need to top up. (I won't be doing that).

      My experience with 7search and the poor customer service at CC undermined any faith I had in the product so I requested refund after only going through module 1. Sounds stupid, I know but I had lost faith and haven't got the resources to 'learn by experience' (ie lose money) by perservering with PPC networks like 7Search.

      Perhaps I should have peservered but it seemed better to cut and run before spending too much.

      Applied for refund through Clickbank and have been notified that it has been processed.

      ASK UPDATE:

      I just spoke with a advertising account rep at ASK.COM and he stated that ASK does not CURRENTLY have a self serve platform like Google, Yahoo and MSN. So that is why all advertising inquiries were being routed to the Sales department.

      However, he also stated that ASK will be re-launching the self-service channel in about a week. So if you've been trying to get a account, wait about a week, then you should be able to create a account at http://sponsoredlistings.ask.com

        Ok thats it enough with all the hooplaaah. Sheesh. First off we need to start sticking to what the thread is actually about instead of digressing to sales pitch or talking about TROUBLEshooting ticket related issues. Put that nonsense in another thread because it isnt relative to this particular thread and its not fair to those trying to get some decent input on the meat and potatoes of the product in question. No one wants to sort through complete nonsense and unrelated posts just to actually find some decent feedback on how the product works. Now I realize that this comment itself in its nature is in fact and digression but please consider it exempt as it is purely an attemp to end any future digressions. But I digress.

        ANYWAY MEAT AND POTATOES TIME:

        How do you go about eking out a living in this dark world of internet marketing? I will answer that in a second so keep reading.

        I bought the product(CC). It is purely geared towards those who dont know the game of ppc. Complete Fluff. You deal with 2nd rate ad platforms that Mr Minasouraus or whatever promises will deliver with cheap traffic costs. Well he was right about one thing, cheap traffic having a twofold meaning: Cheap price CHEAP QUALITY. Dont get me wrong you will get some streams of traffic the are targeted and quality but most is bad traffic and thats what happens when you deal with 2nd tier platforms like all of the ones mention in phils hyped up, money draining newbie magnet. Just to give a basic breakdown of the positives and negatives:

        Pros:
        - Good general background information for those new to ppc

        Cons:
        -No specific methods(with step by step processes) to actually begin making money

        -Customer Service issues with mismanagement of sales/commerce transactions!(From what I can gather from all the other 500 hundred unrelated comments in this thread)

        -Bad quality streams of traffic that will waste your clicks in a day. If you do get this product start off with a low budget an track the partners of ur ad engine

        -And finally Large amounts of hype and fluff even Larger gaps of information in regards to a sound strategy that you can execue and get a decent ROI!!!

        You probably think I'm fired up right now. Truth is...........This is where I really turn it up! Back to my question above!

        How do you go about eking out a living in this dark world of internet marketing?

        Calling All Affiliates Regardless of Your level of expertise!

        Out of all the "Make Money" products that vendors place on Clickbank few actually work(30-40%), most dont and are only worth buying if you want to know the ins and outs to deliver a tricked out presell and promote it. If you want to find out which are the ones that you can use to make money or which ones you just need to stay away from and just promote you can find that out here on warrior forum to see if the product is a gem or a dud(but you didnt need me to tell you that I know)

        Lastlyyy If you want to make money online with PPC consistenly you have to do two things.
        #1. Looking for cheap 2nd rate knock off PPC networks are a waste of time. Stick with Google Yahoo and MSN. Yes they are pricy clicks but you get what you pay for and the only reason they are pricy is because there is money being made and the bids are going up as a result.TIP: start off with a small budget and when you earn money like say your first 200 dollars, dont blow it on a Sat night out. Reinvest your profit so you can create a large budget and begin to up your bid, widen ur budget etc. GOOGLE is King stop knocking them they are pricy but you at least are getting quality traffic!

        #2 If your new and do not know where to start with PPC get a free intro guide on google adwords i.e. Brad Collens Google Adwords Made Easy. Or if you want to invest get Adwords Miracle.
        Finally if you want to get actual methods that show you step by step how to make money the right way as in affiliate instead of getting trick and lead astray like lambs by these GURUS. Get AFFLIATE PROJECT X it will allow you to copy what these gurus are doing and what they are leaving you in the dark about. COPY what they do and you will make money. APX was put out in 2006 broke sales records on Clickbank and is a meat and potatoes no fluff. It says do this do that and do that and you just follow there methods if you dont like one of the methods choose another. I only use two. I bough it in 2009 so these methods are timeless. Then and only then will you be able to see what Affiliate PPC marketing really is and finally know the truth about whats going on. I have no blog, no hop link no sales page for you to visit. This is just to help out those who are frustrated and are being severely misguided especially by products like Confidential Conversions. A crap quality Confidential Underground Traffic Source? Hey Phil Do us all a big favor and Keep it Confidential & UNDERGROUND!!!!!

          Awesome post, Sharingan,

          hope your information helps me as much as you digress from time to time.
          Anyways I'm even thankful that you do.
          tomorrow - now it's 2am and I'm tired - I will head over to Affiliate Project X. If its content unveils what the site is preaching this will be eyeopening for me. At the time I feel like running my head straight forward and all smiling aganist a wall.

          Five hours ago I considered buying CC but I gave the forum search a try and you people saved me from tearing all my hair off my head and money out of my wallet. Thanks a lot for that.

          And to all other newbs out there: I actually observed that in most parts the greatest piece of information sticks in threads like this one where people consider and review such offers like CC.

          So again thanks to all of you for your feedback and all that particularly hidden info for living longer while becoming an IM.

          Best regards,
          Chris

    Initially, I was excited hearing about ASK as a low cost, high quality traffic source

    During the past week, I filled out ASK.COM's "Contact Sales" form at http://sponsoredlistings.ask.com several times in an effort to get signed up for a advertising account. About 4 days ago I received a call from a ad rep. After answering a few of his questions he said he would be sending me my account info and I haven't heard anything from them since.

    I own over 100 websites and have advertising accounts at Google MSM, Yahoo and other ad Networks. I have never had such a problem getting a ad account. Usually it only takes a few minutes, not days and no "Screening" like ASK has.

    If the top 3 SE's such as Google, MSM and Yahoo has instant advertising sign up registration available, ASK should as well.

    Phillip failed to tell anyone in his videos they would have to jump through hoops to get accepted by ASK.com .

    Today, I faxed a complaint letter to ASK.COM president, Mr. Scott Garell about the problem I have had getting a ad account and how ASK has received a ton of free advertisement as a result of Phillip Mansour's Confidential Conversions. How Internet Marketers are fed up with Google Adwords and how ASK could benifit IF they would make it easier for people to sign up. And how other SE's like Google, MSM and Yahoo has instant advertising account sign-ups so ASK.com should as well.

    If anyone else wants to contact ASK, here's their contact info...

    I read this sales letter when it first came out (as it was recommended by people whom I respect, or rather respected. Their stock has gone down for me now). What put me off was that Philip Mansour doesn't even seem to know how old he is! In the sales letter her refers to himself as being both 22, and 24. If he couldn't even get that right ...

    And after reading your comments, I'm doubly glad I passed.

    Yes support will only answer general stuff like refunds. There is no support for the product itself.
    I signed up with Ask.com about 3 weeks ago and I have still heard nothing.

      It's been over a month I think if there was going to be more success than usual with this program we'd be hearing about it by now, no?
      Is anyone doing good with this system yet?

      I really would like to put ALL of my time and effort into one system, but obviously, I would like it to be a system that is working for the majority of people that are using it. I'm really sick and tired of buying programs that result in fustration and surfing the web for a new system....
      I would love to hear from anyone willing to report actual results, both poisitive and negative...

        Like the comment above, I moved on from this program. I still have some campaigns up on 7search, which are netting me about $2/day in CPA. Phil will really have to learn the hard way, that customer service is important. You can't just shoot people out an email saying "connect with me on skype to get my 1on1 support, I will help you..." and then never ever show up on skype after that. Bing and Google PPC are still giving me bigger profits. I'm all for giving smaller companies a chance to get a way from the beast, and I'm not saying that 7search, MIVA, and these other search engines are garbage, but CC is DEFINITELY not a system you can just follow to duplicate Phil's results. Vinny, I understand more than most people here about your frustration. Read my first comment (#120). I've spent close to $10k over the past few years trying all sorts of different programs. Almost EVERYTHING out there is just a product they pitch for their front end marketing funnel, and as you get sucked in and realize that you cannot duplicate their results they claim to have from the first system, you are continuously bombarded with upsells, and webinars that offer you their real, exclusive, back end products that costs anywhere from $200-$1000+.

        "Here's my underground search PPC platforms that I use to earn $123,456/day, you can buy it for $67...Here's how I really make use of these PPC platforms to earn $123,456/day, you can buy this for $367..." and so on. You get the idea. And that is why you see more people selling this product as affiliates than actually buying it and using it to make money. The future commissions, endless upsells, makes it very very lucrative.

        All that money, like I said in my post...could have been spent towards something that actually works. If I had spent the $10,000 investing and reinvesting in the system that I have now, I can't begin to describe where I would be financially.

        So after endless efforts in trying to communicate with Phil and his company, only to be met by his upsell webinars and autoresponse messages, I give a thumbs down to CC. Sell it, don't buy it...but only if you can stomach that kind of profit method.

    I bought this a couple of weeks ago and after going through the entire course, requested the refund.

    It has got loads of videos on most of the 2nd tier ppc / ppv networks, but really only just shows you how to sign up and create an ad. It doesnt really take you through a step by step process to get to profitable campaigns on each network.

    I understand that there were some fast mover bonuses when this was launched that included a cut & paste campaign that did make a number of people some decent money. Unfortunately I was not in time for this.

    I did not check out the mobile marketing module, as I want to get normal internet marketing to work first.

    So for me there was not a lot of new knowledge and information in this. However, if you are a beginner and really want to know the basics about signing up with the networks, then this has got some helpfull stuff.
