Has anyone purchased yet?

Has anyone spat out any blogs using this yet?

Just want to know how quick it is to set up a new blog using this. Was also interested in the keyword tool.

    I just bought this (the platinum level, which is a 14 day trial, then 67 per month), but's it's way too early to comment on this as it just came out. But i can come back in a few weeks to let everyone know how i'm doing if anyone's interested.

      I thought that it was a one time payment only of $67. You are saying you are in on the Platinum level at $67 per month. Is there a different structure to what they are saying in the sales letter?

      Hi,

      The sales copy says:
      "I am excited to get started with Blog Blueprint right away for a one-time payment of ONLY $67."

      I'm wondering what do we get for a one-time payment of $67.

      I hope we're not getting "Lies. . . and Street Fights!"

        You get whats on the sales page for $67

        The platinum level is obviously an upsell. In an earlier email from one of the Jason's it says there is upsells but you don't need them to make this work.

          Hello,

          I have decided to try the $ 7 option that allows you to access the members area. I will be charge an additional $ 60 per year unless I decide to cancel the membership. There is also the possibility to upgrade to the Gold or Platinum membership levels.

          The members are has a menu with training, downloads, forum, support and tools. The tools section offers Syndicate Kahuna which can only be accessed by "Platinum Level" member's

          I found that the site is well organised and that it offers plenty of training starting from a general view and then moving into detailed subjects.

          It start with some considerations about the reasons why many autoblogs fail and shows the need to develop useful content for the human visitors and search engines.

          There are 25 lessons which include a video and written text.

          The downloads area includes a Quick Start pdf and 5 installation files most of which are Windows executables. If you use the MAC or Linux you will need a virtual Windows session.

          Generally I have the impression of well organized system that gives surely more than other cheaper Autoblogging courses.

          I will keep you informed about my progress

        If you upgrade to the platinum level, then you get these extra's for $67 per month (taken from the back office after i joined):

        - ABB - Social Linker PRO
        Automatically Promote Your Blog With An Unlimited Amount of Accounts at Each of The Included Social Services.

        - ABB - DataFeeds

        ABB - PLR Import

        And just to let you know, you can get the regular $67 package, and if you decide to get upgrade, you can always do that. So it's not like when you are buying and it comes out with the one time offer saying,"upgrade now or you will miss your chance of getting platinum package and missing out on the extra's forever" kind of crap.

        If you buy the regular package and want to upgrade later, there's an upgrade button in your back office. Actually, now that i'm thinking about it, i probably should've done that. But i'm in wth the platinum and it's not terribly expensive at $67 per month, which i can afford, so we'll see.

          OOps, Sorry joy777, the past post i did was for the other member that was asking about the platinum package. For the basic package, you get essentially get what the sales page says, which s the course itself, obviously, but also some tools to automate the processes. Some of those tools are:

          Blog Blueprint Training
          Keyword Corral PRO
          Web Page Analyzer
          Content Spinner
          Ping FM Account Creator
          ABB - SK Setup
          ABB - Amazon
          ABB - eBay
          ABB - Translate
          ABB - Social Linker

          Now what i find funny is (from my initial studying of the material) how they mention how terrible blogs are that have the translate feature because it doesn't read right (the English to Spanish and back to English thing), yet look at feature 9 I have in my list above? A TRANSLATE FEATURE!

          I hope it's not what i just mentioned, and something else, like maybe a translation feature for people that are outside of your country and speak a different language. But again, i just started this, so I'm not going to make judgments yet.

          As i said before, I'll give this a go and see how it goes. The Platinum package gets the extra stuff in my previous post

            from the looks of it, it has nice interface inside the membership area. unfortunately, you can only watch the videos online. from someone coming from asia, this sucks as my interenet connection is not that fast. i was asking their support but they just shrugged that i can only watched the videos online without even giving me any option.

            if i still can't watch them from my end, this course no matter how good it is, will be useless to me and i will just ask for a refund.

          Hi perswealth,

          You have mentioned Syndicate Kahuna...

          My question:
          If you cancel the Platinum membership will your links in Kahuna remain or be lost?

          It looks like a good program but I don't want to waste my $67 Platinum fee in case I cancel the Platinum membership.

          Thanks for the info.

            Hello Joy,

            They don't mention that in the course, but i imagine that they will stay on those blogs, as that is usually the case in the other membership sites that distribute your links

              Perswealth,

              How are the links distributed in Kahuna: Are they in the form of submitting our articles or site description?

              How does their Content Spinner work? Is it similar to Best Spinner?

                Joy,

                Honestly, i haven't gotten that far into the course where we are using the tools yet. That's more down the road. I just started the training last night and i am on lesson 6, which is where the real training begins.

                And those first five lessons mainly deal with what to expect in the course and what you'll be learning as well as mindset that you will need to have in order to be successful. They also added some mindset exercises to do to keep you motivated. Some people here might think of that as a waste of time, but given that i am into stuff like like, i ddn't mind at all, and actually kinda liked it. If it ain't for you, you can always skip it.

                I actually like the course so far and how it's put together. But obviously the real question is whether i can make any money with this. And they preach that this will be a long term project, meaning that it will take a little while to see any decent results, which i like. I knew that was the case anyway but it's nice to see that they aren't blowing smoke up my a$%#.

                So the jury is still out for me, but so far so good...

        And also, if you want to try it for $7 for 7 days, hit the refresh button.

        You don't have to outlay the initial $67 to have a look and see if you like it.

        You should always hit the refresh page on IM products to see if they offer a lower price to catch the visitors who are leaving. Personally, I hate this approach, but if it saves you money.......

    Has anyone used the content plugin yet? Is it similar to uaw's plugin where others post to ur blog in return for backlinks? That is my initial impressions of blogblueprint's content plugin. I could be wrong though. I'm more interested in the tools rather than the training...

    The sales letter contains so much fluff, I can't even figure out what this system is !

    Why the fluff and the filler? For example:

    Highly-Unique *Exclusive* Content Source You won't find this anywhere else. Get good quality, highly-unique (human reviewed) articles in dozens of niche markets -- not over-used PLR articles. This exclusive content is only available to Blog Blueprint customers.
    Ready-To-Go Video Content & More
    Automatically adds keyword specific, related videos to your blog posts... plus other sources of great content that we can't reveal here.
    Only the important information is missing from this sales letter.

    I think I'm also interested in the blog blueprint, but like everyone else I'm wondering exactly what's behind door #1. I hate these up sells, down sells, side sells and all the ad ons that are behind door #2, door#3 and sometimes door#4.. It's so deceitful. You don't know what you really need and what you don't. You don't even know what you're really getting. It's very confusing and how to do know whom to trust?

    I hate monthly subscriptions. You need to keep those at a minimum or it can quickly get out of hand.

    So what is the bottom line? Please keep us posted.

    I might buy the package to see what the autoblog plugin is like and see if there's anything new in their blueprint... but I'm not really interested in another continuity program for $ 67 a month.... not when there are tools you can buy for most functions for a one-time payment.

    Does anyone know what the "can't reveal" WP theme is ?

    I just bought the package for $67 however you are just paying for the software and some training which is good.

    I can't actually see where I can do auto blogging unless I upgrade so the sales copy is a little deceptive.

    Maybe I am wrong and would appreciate your thoughts.

    The $67 starting price only allows you to use the software for 10 blogs. If you want an unlimited licence, you need to upgrade and I'm guessing that one of the upsells (costing $197 one-time fee) is for that.

    I got this information from the affiliate page.

      The limit of 10 blogs is mentioned only for the Auto Blogs installer that allows to create automatically optimized blogs.

      The documentation says that unlimited blog install license can be purchased, but it is not required. I will try to get more explanations about that.

      The limit does not seem to apply to the Autoblog Buddy that is the actual autoblog plugin.

      If you want the unlimited license, you will need to become a platinum member for the $67 per month

        I asked the Blog Blueprint support to clarify the issue of the 10 blogs limit and I found that it applies only to the auto installer. You can use the autoblog plugin with as many blog as you wish.

        I copy below the answer from support:

        Re: 10 Blogs Limit

        by jasonkatzenback ยป Sat Oct 30, 2010 4:11 pm
        With the one time payment, you get to install 10 blogs once. There are two version of the autoblogbuddy plugin... the regular which you get with the one time payment and the PRO version. You can install as many installations as you want of Auto Blog Buddy regular.

      hello Guys! Just to clear up if anyone s confused here.......[at least that is the intention]


      I went through and bought both programs. This is how you do it!: Mike gives away his own program when you buy blogblueprint through his affiliate link, so you get both programs. The correct link is http://black hat software.net [black instead of back (which was a typo)]
      you will have to fix the link if it is distorted....
      somehow black hat gets translated into blue fart in this forum....


      [this offer has been discontinued]


      I looked at both things from inside and at first glance it seems that both programs are top quality and they happen to compliment each other perfectly. Some things you'd have to buy separately going the autoblogblueprint route is included in blogblueprint [if you go platinum]. So it is a perfect match.

      The best part is you get unlimited pro templates and unlimited autoinstalls form blog blueprint and a more thorough overall strategy and link building plan + a very decent working pro forum from Mike Johnson who is also "da autoblogman" [if you go platinum with Jason Potash that is].

      Neither way would it be possible to do all of this for free, but going this route gives you absolutely most "trash" [=stuff] for your bucks

          I have had the time to look further. Although I have not yet tried the tools this is what I have found.

          The Blog blueprint membership gives you all the tools you need included in the membership.

          The autoblogblueprint suggest that you go buy all the tools additionally.

          This makes a huge difference- especially for newbies. The basic membership at Jason Potash BlogBlueprint lets you use most of the tools for unlimited sites. And Jasons auto blog installer with free pro theme is licensed for 10 sites which lets you work one full month according to the basic plan.

          Going platinum lets you continue producing unlimited blogs with pro theme.
          + acouple of other incredibly nice features.

          As I said I have not used the tools, but if you choose autoblogblueprint, you will have to invest several hundred bucks in additional tools, but with blogblueprint the tools are included.

          I peronally doubt that Jason Potash would give me junk tools and cannot wait to get done with the training and start using the tools.


          The instructional videos by Jason Katzenback are also done in a very friendly and professional way.

          The whole blog blueprint is very friendly and detailed with step by step training

          I doubt you find a better program unless you are willing to pay a LOT LOT more

          If you need some kind of super tools then I guess you have to search for that a different way anyway.

          For $67 you get a complete line of all the tools you need to set up a lot of quality blogs, and all the training to get you going. Use it, and set it up as suggested, and when you are in profit, hire a programmer or do anything to get better tools if you find that you need that.

          That is my opinion.

              Hi,

              I've not tried auto blogging but I've been looking to start once I figure out which training to follow. I'm trying not to jump at the first thing that sounds good as I know from experience that that way leads to a loss of time and money. With auto blogging, the key is numbers, the more blogs you have the more money you can potentially make. My question is this, how do you promote these blogs? It seems to me the more blogs you have the harder it would be to do the regular stuff, link building, the dreaded article marketing etc.
              Do you need to go this route to promote your blogs or does the traffic come if the blogs are well optimized and being regularly updated with relevant content?

                  Of course it is *possible* if you create a few blogs with good content and get lots of traffic/get lucky. The possibility of earning a lot of money increase with the number of blogs. Some earn nothing, some earn a little and some may earn a lot.

                  On his site [edit: no link because it turns it into an "unmentionable" mentioned previously!] Mike Johnson says:
                  It is just me and my Auto Blogging Empire of 123 auto blogs which make me over $40,000 per month right now.

                  I guess we just need to do the math?

                  I'm an ABB member, and yes, there are many tools that are 'suggested' for purchase. That's why I'm looking at Blog Blueprint.

                The course includes also a few lessons on Traffic. I found them very good and they describe some methods and traffic sources that I had not read in other traffic courses that I have purchased in the past.

                You might try the $ 7 trial for a week that will allow you to access the training and decide if you want to continue.

      Yes, but I would have preferred Mike to have given a larger discount than the $50 to his $147 product.

      After reading the comments above, I decided I'd rather pay Mike $97 for his product than end up losing my cool with the umpteen upsells and downsells referred to above.

      I'm off in a moment to start the ABB tutorials to see in what way it adds to the info I already have on similar products purchased last year which are turbo-charged for volume blog production using good, unique content.

      I like to buy different products on the same theme because, invariably, one learns one nugget of information from one that may be missing from the others which makes the purchase worthwhile.

    I am a member of ABB 2.0 and it is the most detailed course I ever seen with top support from Mike himself. Did I mention it is a one time fee?

    I have no idea what is in Blog Blueprint but it needs to be pretty darn impressive if it wants even the slightest chance to top Mike's ABB 2.0.

      Lefty,

      It'a actually a comination of things. It is:

      Ebay
      Commission Junction
      Adsense
      Amazon
      Clickbank

      But the course focuses on Amazon and Clickbank (at least in the beginning when we are picking products to promote). I assume we will be delving into using the other ones as the course goes on, or at least talking about them and how to pick products from them.

        OK, couldn't wait. Need to check out the software.

        Now I'm confused. The below is taken straight from the upsell page for the platinum membership.

        "Try out Blog Blueprint Platinum today for only $4.95. You will get 14 days to enjoy the added benefits of being a Platinum member and to convince yourself just how invaluble the additional tools are to growing and futher-automating your autoblogging business. After 7 days, your Blog Blueprint Platinum subscription will start for $67 and automatically re-bill every 30 days. You can cancel at any time."

    I bought and am having probs with the blog builder software. As soon as I open it, I get a "timed out" msg. Another concern in the video it was said the software was supported only with the hosts they had listed. Of course I can't get to the list because the sofware times out as soon as I try to open it. Waiting on support. It's been 4 days, but i'm allowing a little grace because of weekend. I didn't even get a automated email that they received my support tkts.

        Hi blue rose,

        I have been watching this thread for a while....but couldn't hesitate to answer your question.

        I have been on internet marketing for 2 years now....I have bought lots of software, blue prints etc....in fact I even bought just a map of how to do web 2.0 and backlinking for $67.

        BB is the best training and software combination I have ever bought. just for $67 - life member access to trainings and software. Beautiful forum that get people answering your questions less than 12 hours even on weekends.

        I cant just start explaining how happy I am with BB because it deliverable overwhelms me.

        And guess what...I tried it with just $7 for a week and believe me...I was pushing them to take me away from trial period and accept me as a full member coz i the joining process might change and they might want to close doors to new comers.

        You could do the same...optin with $7 then after a week, if you are not satisfy, you get a refund of $7 instead of loosing out on a big opportunity.

        For others complaining about software issues, yes some people had issues with some of the software and the BB team are doing their best to support them but the support tickets are just too much....less than 2 weeks, more than 2000 people joined BB and people are just sending in questions to the support team.......

        I can keep on telling you how good is BB until tomorrow....., but will it change your decision? Your best bet is giving it a try after all, you can get your $7 refund back.

        Meet me in the inside........We are in the happy forum everyday welcoming new BB members....

        Cheers...

    Interesting trend here...

    Some people post question does the software work? want to know before i join.

    Then they tell they joined and the software not working. support not answering etc.

    Then they tell that they'll "give" the guys a few more days etc.....

    Then they finally tell the software never worked and they asked for a refund....


    OK who cares, goodbye and wish you luck in your endavours. But it really seems like you never wanted/expected it to work in the first place.

    The software does work but sometimes someone leave an extra / or something in the urls that screws up the process. I bought it so I should know!

    If you do not want it to work it wont. It works perfectly for me by the way.

    Come on, is this a warrior forum or what is it? A warrior does not easily give up. A warrior is not easily defeated. A warrior does not expect the negative and does not force it to happen.....

    Oyvind, I did expect the software to work, but as soon as I opened it I got a timed out msg. That's not software that's working is it? I tried several times and got the same timed out msg. I waited over 5 days for my support tkts to be answered and they were not. I'm glad that you and others had better luck, but it didn't work for me. If I didn't want it to work I wouldn't have bought it in first place.

      I understand your point, and I guess support was swamped.

      If you have tried figuring out how to use blogs on your own you would perhaps try a little more to make things work. But Blog Blueprint is of course not for everyone. if you did not see the potential value of what you bought, then you are not the targeted market for the product, and you got your refund and you are happy so everyone are happy!

      With that said, I am Saying that the software indeed works like a dream for me just as it should, even on unsupported hosting accounts, which I was warned, that it "might not work", but it worked nevertheless. Just had to input all the details correctly, that's all.

      That you did not make it work for you, because you failed to put in the correct details, or your hosting account failed to support the software, does not legitimate bashing of an obvious quality product in public forums, does it?

      You could ask in the blog blueprint internal member forum, "does it work for you guys?". And if the majority answered "no!", then you'd have a case.

      I am not defending unanswered support tickets here, but we all know that such things happen during launches.

      What I am stating is that the software indeed works! So now everyone knows that as a fact.

      There is also a forum with very fast response time, and no question remains unanswered!

    Must be a nightmare to sell your own software. I mean there are so many different computer configurations and everyone is of course expecting the software to work flawlessly.

    • Hi imguru

      Yes selling your own software is sometimes a challenge.

      The best bet though is to "Test" everything as well as you can before release.

      Then make sure that you don't continue to make support "excuses".

    When you say I might not have put in correct details for my hosting acct shows you didn't read my post very well or didn't understand it. Things never got that far.

      I am not arguing about this, I understand you clearly.

      It did not work for you.
      Support never answered you.
      You did not use the forum.
      After 5 such days you filed for a refund.

      I have no problems with that.

      What I say is, the support system is indeed working. I make this judgement based on all the feedback in the forum, which is working well btw.

      I do not know why you did not get answer form support.
      I just know that such things happen.

      but,

      There are no indications that this is the normal state of business around there. That is what I point out.

      I already told you that "I am not defending unanswered support tickets here, but we all know that such things happen during launches."

      You did not stay long enough to determine what is normal state of business around there!

    I'd definitely check out ABB by Mike Johnson before making a purchase. It's hard to believe this course is far superior to Mike's. Plus, ABB has a one time payment.

    The course is probably good, but how much better can it be over Mike's. Someone who has both should let us know.

      Both products are good, and they are different!

      If you are not on a tight budget, you could easily buy both ABB and BB.

      With that said, Blog Blueprint is also a one time investment as well as ABB, except for the unlimited license to a pro theme and link builder, which is an ongoing $67 per month.
      [You seem to imply that ABB is one time payment while BB is not]
      The recurring platinum membership with BB at $67 is for tools you'd have to subscribe to or buy regardless what program you choose!

      You do not get this at ABB for a one time payment. I would make that clear.

      With Blog blueprint you get good tools and instructions for a one time fee.
      You get unlimited paid pro theme and unlimited link building and PRO autoblogsoftware for a monthly fee at BB.

      You do not get all this for a one time payment at ABB. Let us be clear about that. Althoug ABB's blog installer is as far as I can see for unlimited installs. But as I already mentioned, you'd have to invest in themes separately, Or go with inferior free themes. It is all about budgeting and mixing grapes with apples Life is about choices. Or go with both programs!


      Mike Johnson is an expert on autoblogging, and you will get great value from his membership if not based on his devotion to autoblogging alone.

      But,

      he is running the business alone. This is not necessarily a problem

      but,

      Blog Blueprint is managed by a team, they are light on foot and have put together a great package for both the newbie and the experienced marketer to be able to build quality blogs [not just autoblogs] quickly.

      It is possible to make a more detailed comparison, but I see no point in that.

      Those products are different, and I see no point in claiming the one is better than the other. They are different, and if you go the Mike Johnson ABB route you should know that you have to invest in additional tools to set up your blogs.

      With BB, for a one time $67, you get 10 licenses to a pro theme + unlimited autoblog software and other tools, which would cost you a great deal of money should you go the ABB route, and it happens that Mike Johnson is recommending you go buy the exact same theme and 10 licenses are not cheap. Additionally Mike earns commisions from the sales of pro themes and tools. Add this to the cost of membership! But every marketer does it this way, so who will complain? Just let us be honest about it.



      Now that is said, and I will not speak more about this!

      It should by now be clear to anyone.

      If you go either way, or if you go with both, you will still have additional cost like hosting and domain and eventually outsourcing of content creation. This is exactly the same with both program, and could make up a substantial amount. Much more than the membership fee.

      but,

      by then you should be in profit so it is not a real problem. No one is asking you to invest in hundreds of domains and hosting up front.

      You build it one blog at a time.

    I stayed 5 days. That's long enough for any support that's worth it's salt to answer. Anyhow, glad it works for you. But I do not put up with bad support. End of my discussion with you.

    Everyone!


    BB is a great program which does not promise you earning millions, but it is based on proven step by step systems that work for people who put in the work and devotion needed to make any legitimate business work.

    I wanted to say this because people deserve a neutral opinion because you are offered pipe dreams everywhere.

    Why pipe dreams?

    well the product may be good, but at $2000 it serves a narrow niche. It is suitable for pros who are earning big bucks in their business to fine hone existing skills or learn new skills to improve their business. But newbies misinterpret the message and think it is the magic bullet from poverty and misery to success. without any work!

    Blog Blueprint is a different product.

    It promises you earn a normal sum of money -if you are going to apply all the steps and work the business, learning the trade.

    So far I have spoken about technical differences.

    Another thing is that I simply love the program and it gives a good feeling almost like christmas time. It is not because of the wrapping either. It is because of the content.

    It is impossible though to operate without any customer complaints what so ever I guess.

    There are various reasons why people come in and why things do not work and why people give negative feedback.

    I write this to you who are inexperienced so that you know if you invest $67 in BB all you need to have a real business is to buy a few domains and a hosting account, and you do not need to buy anything else unless you want to when you are in profit.

    Blog Blueprint really is that good!

    You don't have to waste money no more. You don't need to go broke!

      Hey Lefty359

      Just so I can get this straight in my head, you sent a ticket to support but did not get a confirmation email, how do you know they even received it?

      Did you send another ticket?


      Thanks

    Software timed immediately after opening. Doubt if anyone on forum could have helped anyway. I expect the sellers to provide timely support. They did not in my case. I don't want to do business with sellers like that. Just my quirk.
    I've gotten a refund and am moving on.

      I had the exact same problem. I contacted support and received a solution within 24 hrs. It was a cookie setting issue.

      I know you have moved on but just wanted to let everyone know that their support is not failing everybody.

      I have been a member for a week and a bit now. The software and tools are great for what I want to do. There has been issues, the keyword tool isn't working properly but they are working on it and letting us know what is going on.

      I am very happy with the product as a whole. The price is great for what you get.

      I would have no problems recommending this to anyone. The blog installer has saved me hours of time.

    I didn't sign up for BB as I didn't want another forced continuity program. That was the biggest downside to me.

    I joined ABB recently and don't regret it for a second. Mike is very much on top of what is available, uses and tests pretty much everything, and keeps everyone apprised of what works best for every aspect of autoblogging.

    What works today won't work tomorrow and that's pretty much a given, so staying independent means the ability to react more quickly when you're not tied to a given technology or tool set. Staying one step ahead is the name of the game.

    BB is attractive in that it is an "all in one" turnkey solution though and I can see how that is attractive for getting up and running quickly. In any case, both have some very good points and good people behind them.

    I'd suggest that everyone that joins BB consider joining ABB too. It's a one time fee (right now) and you'll learn a LOT. A very active and experienced community too.

    HTH.

      I am definately going to join Mikes program also. I have only heard good things about it and to be honest, he has only ever put out great stuff.

      I didn't sign up to BB for the training, I signed up for the tools and the software, which I am very happy with. They do however, teach a very good system of autoblogging. Not the autosplogging crap that has come out lately. I purchased Chris X's autoblogging program recenlty and was absolutely shattered, it was total garbage. That was my first refund request in over 18 months. From the moment I checked out the inside of BB I knew there would be no way I would be thinking of a refund. Thats what a product should do, straight off the bat.

      I could definitely get away with not joining Mikes either but I know I'll learn a few new things from him, he knows his stuff. It's always good to see how everyone else is doing it. I have the tools now to implement all of the autoblogging tricks that I learn.

        Mark, and everyone!

        I am not sure if it is a good idea to join both program at the same time? If you ask me I would give BB at least a month to implement everything, perhaps as much as two months or more, before you aditionally invest in ABB, if you should want that.

        If you try to do it simultaneously you might get confused and it could increase the risk of you losing the motivation and enthusiasm you had in the first place when joining BB.

        You could easily become overloaded and that is not a good thing.

        What I had in mind was that after you are in profit using the system and tools at BB, it does not hurt with some second opinions that you could get at ABB in order to fine hone and tune your system, eventually implement even more back link tactics and such.

        Another important thing to be aware of is that you will have to consider a budget of several hundred dollars in order to implement the additional tools and tactics that ABB sugest [Let Me Emphasize That].

        This is another reason that if you are on a limited budget, it would be a waste of time and money to join ABB immediately.

        I hope this post made that clear to all of you who are in this category. Everyone would have to consider his budget and level of experience and so on very carefully. I have no use of knowledge if not implemented. And a month run fast. You have a lot of work to do in a month to set up 10 perfectly nice blogs with BB, indexed and getting backlinks as you should, setting up monetization and fine honing everything.

        Content must be written and graphics have to be made and the list of tasks is quite long really. With that said, if you implement all of it, you could be on your way earning 500-1000 on autopilot. That is much more than most newbies get at, after investing hundreds upon hundreds on the latest craze out there.

          Yeah Ovyind,

          I hear you. I already have a profitable autoblog system. I only got BB for the tools. $67 a month for the tools and software is pretty good for what you get. I could probably get some of them for a one time payment but I am very happy with the quality of the tools in BB and what they do.

          The blog installer alone saves me hours. I set my campaigns up initially with 10 blogs, then expand. This usually takes me about 8 - 10 hours of manual set up. I can do this with the installer in around 1 - 2 hours. Thats worth $67 a month to me right there.

          I will join Mikes program just to take the bits I think will power up my current settings.

            Hi Everyone,

            I've bought so much old crap, lies and promises in the past - especially from the usual lying 'get rich quick' guru types in the past, that to be fair, I just try stuff now to see if one of them might just be of some value.

            If it's crap (and it usually is - I get a refund!)

            Well, I'm not a newbie - nor am I any kind of guru - but I have purchased Blog Blueprint and I reckon it's very good value. I believe one can learn a helluva lot from this course.

            It is detailed and more so - up to date.

            Yes, they have had a few quirks with the Keyword Corral Pro software - but this due to Google's keyword tool update but BB have fixed it.

            Their support is different class. The fastest and best I've seen in 5 years.

            The training is very detailed and laid out step-by-step - but is easy enough if you don't go jumping the gun.

            They are also very honest and tell you from the beginning that you can expect to make about $40 per month/per blog.

            Take your time and do it properly and long term it's possible to build a decent sized blog network/empire, that could give you a very nice and comfortable income - but don't expect it overnight.

            If you're looking to get rich overnight, then my advice is "get out of Internet Marketing" cos it ain't gonna happen unless by some miracle you find a niche that is untapped, gets millions of traffic and has zero competition.

            We all want to make money fast - but reality is that it takes time.

            Have you got the staying power, as a very high percentage of would-be Internet Marketers just throw the towel in after a few months and parting with a nice few quid.

            Here's my advice for what it's worth:

            Be guided by members in the Warrior forum - but don't take everything as gospel.

            Unsubscribe from 99% of the money grabbing fraudsters (so-called gurus) and find one good system to follow and give it a real chance. If you don't unsubscribe from these parasites, then you'll be constantly distracted by all their emails directing you to their colourful pipe-dream, flashy sales pages. (If you've seen one -then you've seen them all. They all look alike!) You know the one's I mean.

            These sales pages are put together by very clever marketers and copywriters who can literally sell the skid marks off of their pants to us - BEWARE!

            As their saying goes: "Get 'em on the tit and NEVER stop charging them for the milk!"

            The web is a shark infested digital ocean and we are their food.

            If you're serious about making good money online, then expect to learn 10 different skills. Expect to never stop learning - or get left behind, as the Internet is constantly evolving.

            However, if you have plenty of cash, then you can outsource most of the work and take a chance of getting stung if you don't know what your doing.

            If you were learning any kind of professional trade you'd expect to do an apprenticeship and after that you would need to learn more by experience. This takes time!

            So why would it be any different with starting an online business?

            Too many of us listen to advice from those who either haven't even purchased the product in question or to those that have used it for about 5 minutes.

            STOP BUYING EVERY BIT OF CRAP THAT FINDS IT'S WAY INTO YOUR MAIL BOX!

    I own both. I like them both. Oyvind keeps talking about having to spend hundreds on extra software for the ABB and yet is paying $67 a month for the BB upgrade. Am I missing something here? Won't $67 a month add up to hundreds?

    True Mike recommends some additional software, so does BB. If you've been around for any length of time it's possible you already have some of the ABB recommendations like Market Samurai, The Best Spinner and WPRobot.

    On the other hand BB has some software as part of the basic ($67 pa) system. Personally, I've chosen to stay with the tools I already have such as Market Samurai rather that the BB Keyword Corral, also I'm staying with The Best Spinner rather than the Content Spinner. That's personal preference because I know the tools, I own them and they are market leaders IMHO

    I'm still on the basic install because the recommended theme is taking a while to get my head around (LOL) There is no reason not to just stay with the basic install of BB - but it's probably worth upgrading to the 2nd level at $17 a month which brings in more and better tools. I wouldn't rush into it - learn the basics before spending more. Then considering upgrading to the $67 mth Platinum when you understand the system. Getting to grips with everything could take you a month or longer. I've not rushed to upgrade to either yet but that's long term my plan.

    In the meantime I'm following Mikes AutoBlog BluePrint, which I like and find he has documented all the steps well and keeps on top of things as far as what works and what doesn't. He keeps everyone informed and makes modifications to the standard blog install (which is an autoprocess) when he finds better plugins. the changes he makes are free plugins as a rule. The ABB forum is better with many more knowledgeable people.

    Both are very good.

      Yes, you are missing a lot here!
      I have personally not yet upgraded to Platinum and am having plenty of work to apply with the basic system I got for a one time fee of $67.
      What I learn, and the tools I got help me to streamline both my existing sites so they are rising in the search engines already based on my new approach, formed by knowledge mostly gathered from inside the BB system, and to polish my regular blogs for better SEO and overall performance and to implement as many autoblogs as I want in my mix.
      It is not as much about autoblogs as it is a unique system of how to approach the internet marketing business. Inside the forum many thankful people already say they finally understand internet marketing and/or finally are starting to have success in their struggle to start earning online.

      I realize the same is true with ABB, people are learning from the system. It is a good product. But why do you have to come in here and bring the other product down, and more so, if it is based on wrong assumptions? or even worse, if you knowingly are twisting the facts? I am not speaking about you here anaconda, just mentioning it as something to think about after watching several threads. Why? Because I feel that this degrades the forum where I originally thought I could go to for some truthful viewpoints and facts.

      Someone chimed in and suggested you better buy ABB because it is a one time fee, instead of buying BB which supposedly would be a monthly subscription for the same tools.
      What I am trying to say is that you do not get for a one time fee at ABB, all the tools that you get with the platinum level at BB.

      With that said, you get a lot more for one time $67 at BB than you get at ABB for a one time fee as well.
      If you are on a budget and count pennies, then you should know that you get everything you need, except for hosting, at BB for a one time fee of $67. This gives you all you need for the basic setup with which you start earning money.

      If you want to go more advanced, or if you already are experienced, then BB offer a few pro tools which you can use to build a more effective business.


      I am not arguing whether ABB is a very good system, but I see no point hiding the very fact that additional investments are suggested inside the member area, and you cannot complete the suggested basic setup of the system without investing in additional tools.
      Who cares which system is the best? The two products are different and perhaps also cater to different markets. The ABB system has a salesletter which tells very little about what you get, until you actually buy the system and get in. Inside then, you are told that in order to make this thing work you will have to buy this and that.

      This is as I said not a problem if your budget is unlimited. But for the poor guy who invested his last couple of bucks, it could be a problem. Since I decided to review both systems, I decided to tell people how it is.

      You simply can’t continue hijacking a thread which is about BB in the first place and wrongfully keep on suggesting that you get more for a one time fee at ABB than you get at BB or that BB asks a monthly subscription for the same tools which you supposedly get at ABB for a one time fee. This just isn’t fair.
      To finish this off: could you guys come to terms with the fact that this country does not support monopolization in the market and that it is perfectly normal that several suppliers are serving one market? The products could be similar or could be different all catering to different segments of the market, or even to the same segment in the same market. that is perfectly normal!


      Find a niche and fill it with your solutions, that is what the guys over at BB have done.


      As a customer you are left to carefully consider what is offered and chose a package that best suits your needs and abilities, with relation to your own budget and related experience.

      This is where honest advertising is important.....

      Perhaps we should emphasize that a keywordtool is essential for being able to drill down to a niche in which you would be able to compete with your new blog. So you need a keyword tool from day one...:rolleyes:

      market samurai is a great tool an I have used it, but it sets you back at 97, and you will have to buy that before you even set up a blog or buy a domain. Ok, of course Keyword Samurai has a free trial so far, but chances are you get used too the tool and by the end of the trial you're gonna go buying it.

      It just happen that BB, or Blog Blueprint gives you the perfectly working keywordtool that you mentioned, namely Keyword Corall included in the one time fee of $67, so can you see, already there you have got more value back for your money, and that is just one of the many tools included in BB.

      And you get it for life. There is no trial period that soon ends after you get used to the tool.

      You could argue that by that time you should be in profit so $97 is not a big deal by then, but that is not a guarantee either, is it?

      personally my experience is that Keyword corral is much better to drill down on low competition niche keyword than market samurai, but again that is my opinion, and I am probably going to ditch the market samurai in favor of the KC tool. I simply love it.

      but that is me!

    I am making autoblogging right now and analysing this offer seems to save me big money. Im using SEOlinkVine ($47 month) for blogs promotion and Market Samurai for niche research. I guess it worths money $67 month for platinum level (SEO, Market researh, templates, tutorials and videos) sounds great.

    I decided a while back to do as Ovyind suggested more recently: buy one of the programs and focus on learning it fully before thinking about learning the other.

    Because I have come across Mike here before and have always found his posts to be informative and sound, I decided to buy ABB - the power of the personal contact! And I've subsequently had no reason to regret my decision.

    This is not to rubbish the other program in any way, just a personal choice.

    I think it's important to stress that,to contradict the claims of a lot of the snake-oil mercahnts out there, no one program is likely to make anyone rich "overnight". It requires effort, persistence and probably a multi-pronged approach. And as much as anything, that approach will refelct the individual's personal preferences. For example, I can understand how people can make money from "flipping" webistes, or from gaming Yahoo answers; but neither appeal to me.

    Autoblogging plus The Blog Solution appeal to me much more - but I'll not impose them on anyone else!

    Just my 2 cents' worth! I know that in many cases I'm preaching to the converted, but there are atill alot of people out there looking for the no-effort magic bullet.

    There are a few differences between the two programs. Mike's is primarily a in depth course. There are a few other things that make the 'process' easier, as described within his program. He seems to be a straight shooter to me. No outlandish claims or promises. Blog Blueprint is a course, and a bunch of programs. In my opinion, it's pricey. I really like the one time payment of Mike's program as opposed to the monthly cost (and upsell, you pretty much need) of BB. Mike has been continually upgrading the system and I understand ABB 3.0 is coming out in February.
    Either way, don't bother buying these products unless you understand that you must WORK. Nothing push button here (not sure there is such a thing). No short cuts, roll up your sleeves, work hard, do a good job, quality does matter. If you can handle working hard, you have a chance with either program.
    Cheers!

    Hello Oyvind!
    Are you using the system now? Have you been successful with it? I bought the basic level of the system when it launched but because of time & work that I couldn't avoid, I have yet to implement it. Was wondering if it would be worth my time to go through with it now.

    Thanks! Looking forward to your reply soon

      Hi! Sorry for the delay but I didn't check this forum in a while. When I bought this system a while back my intention was NOT to start auto blogging, but just to get updated info about Wordpress plugins and themes and technical advice on blogs.

      I did not plan to invest much time in building a lot of blogs.

      Now I have started using the system more the way it is intended, and I have made some observations....

      The system is quite in depth and although it is suitable for beginners, it is not a waste of time if you are more experienced.

      You get so much more than what you are paying for that saying it is pricey must be an extremely biased comment.

      I am out of time now, but very soon I plan on doing a more complete review of the Blog Blueprint system based on my own observations, as a very happy user of the system.

      Included in the monthly upgrade offer, is some incredible traffic tools, that you by all means do not need if you have other solutions for traffic. but investing in traffic tools is not a bad idea in my opinion. but if you want to do everething by hand and do not need superior traffic tools, no one is forcing you to upgrade.

          I would say that is true of many 'systems' out there. Both of these systems are solid and a person that puts in the effort and follows directions has a real chance.

              Anymore comments about The Blog Blueprint? Is this still worth considering purchasing after the recent Google algo change? This thread appears to be slowing down and wonder if the blueprint is working or not....

                Apparently not. The thread appears abandoned.

    Here's an excerpt from one of the member update emails for The Blog Blueprint:

    "Lots of talks about some recent Google changes and I want to
    first of all rest all of your concerns. Google is targeting
    small blogs with AdSense and particularly blogs with 0 unique
    content. I have seen absolutely no negative affects and in
    fact the opposite for my blogs. The reason is because we
    use unique content, grow the blog properly to gain trust and
    do NOT rely on AdSense."

    In my opinion, it's definitely still worth purchasing. It's a great course and they're improving/updating it all the time. Hope this helps.

    i have been working this now for 4 months, building quality sites, with good content, and focusing mostly on amazon.com, i have 55 sites up now, and each month is getting better, this month has already exceeded my expectations, in 2 weeks i hit the 7.5% commission, so this is working for me, but you have to think outside the box, and put your own spin on this, also none of my sites have been affected by google, i will be carrying on with this for the rest of the year, also any one already a member BBP, will tell you i post each month with a update on my progress
