I've know this product was coming for a while so I was pretty anxious to see it when it finally launched.

I once saw one of James' crazy mindmaps for traffic (which he has renamed The Spaghetti Bowl in Traffic Grab) and I asked "how many of these methods are you using?" to which he replied "ALL of them...."

No wonder he is killing it online; wait until you see it.

So the important question is ...how is it?

First, what is it? Traffic Grab is the complete traffic system that Aussie Internet millionaire James Schramko created that he teaches his "Ninjapinos" to drive HORDES of targeted traffic to his websites and offers.

Traffic Grab includes a TON of material...

- Over 8 hours of video (in mp4 format so you can stick it on your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch if you like)
- Matching mp3 audios for every video
- PDF slides of EVERY video
- The Traffic Spaghetti bowl mindmap showing the whole system graphically
- Matching pdf version of the spaghetti bowl you so you can read the traffic system step-by-step
- James' Ninjapino recruitment video so you can recruit your own Ninjapino team
- Mashtopia RSS training
- PingFM Rss Training
- Spinception Article Training
- Google Analytics URL Codes Tracking sheet

The Good:

There is a TON of information here! If you cannot get traffic to your sites after buying traffic grab, you're doing something VERY wrong!

Clear and concise - James shows every detail in the videos with specific examples of how and why he does each step.

High quality - Everything is high quality which make consuming the product a lot more enjoyable and easy. The spaghetti bowl map autoloads when you access the product page so you've got a quick and easy reference to all of the traffic systems in one place.

The bad:

There is a TON of information here! ( guess that's not really bad...)

When you first open Traffic Grab the sheer volume is a little overwhelming. I guess that's not much of a negative and he does supply you with a step-by-step implementation plan so you really can't go wrong.

Having spoken to James, I know how he does it and in my Traffic Grab Bonus I'll be asking him directly and you can learn the insider secrets that way.

There quite honestly are no other glaring faults to this thing. The price is ridiculously cheap at $79.95 and I have no doubt he could have asked for and got that for each module so this is really more like a several thousand dollar course, being sold for eighty bucks.

I'll be doing a video review of Traffic Grab over at Traffic Grab Truth and will beat some secrets, info and further tips out of James in an interview.

PM me if you want that interview or if you have questions about the product or for James....I'll get them answered for you.

Thanks
Mike

p.s. should also add that James is still adding to this thing! He's adding some modules that supplement Traffic Grab that really could be sold as stand alone products!

He's smashing the guru mold on this one for sure.

      Hey Jesus,

      True, James does set the bar pretty high and he does it on purpose because he can't stand crappy products.

      I'm pretty glad this one came out as well as it did. The product leaves no stone unturned traffic wise and now I see he's already going to be including bonus modules to buyers and the product JUST got released! Crazy.

      can concur, he is an aussie so maybe I am biased...LOL

      anyway. I like his last product, that was pretty good.

        I've worked my way through a big part of Traffic Grab and can make some comments about it.

        1) THIS IS NOT FOR INEXPERIENCED NEWBIES! James says there are lots of things he doesn't cover and he's right. The course size would be beyond monstrous if he did so there are lots of things you already have to know, or learn, before you can implement. Example: keyword research or copywriting which he covers only in the most general way.

        2) I saw a comment somewhere that went along the lines of, "Oh, well, I'll just outsource it". The traffic plan is very complex and you will not be able to hand it over to a $3/hour worker in the Philippines and have success. A member of James' team said the mindmap was "nauseating" - and I presume that 'team' means they're employed by him. There are materials needed, like articles, pdfs, videos, podcasts, etc., and they can be easily outsourced. But implementing the traffic channel requires someone who is intelligent, patient, willing to learn and hopefully has a stake in your success. This probably means a well-paid employee. Besides, before you can outsource anything you must understand it yourself which means working through all the steps yourself.

        3) The how-to of getting traffic might seem overwhelming at first. Obviously, the way to master it is to go step by step, completing one layer before thinking much with the next. It's very helpful to have colors on the different layers. Those colors have helped me to sort out what I'm doing.

        The only thing I dread is dealing with Hubpages. I gave up on them a long time ago because of all their rules and I know they're even more anal since the Farmer update. But they're a big part of this plan. Sigh. Any alternatives, James, if you're following this thread?

        I'm not even through reading the course material so obviously I have no results to report. But it's a very impressive system. Hopefully, the results will be worthwhile because it's not a "read and implement in an hour" program.

          Our team makes hubpages that stick and rank because they are good writers. We have an editor who checks them and as I recommend we focus on creating value to the reader. We have adapted to what is required.

          If you do not like them perhaps do more of something else. The spaghetti bowl is what we do and there are sure to be multiple combinations. In fact, you should mix it up a little to remain natural. Our map changes as we track, test and measure. (I'll be sure to continue sending innovations to the buyers news email when we discover them).

          (Hubpages, Squidoo and Wordpress work better in threes)

          Perhaps you can buy done-for-you hubpages from someone who is an hubpages expert.

          To frame the context:
          Many of my students already have a team in place because I have been teaching this for the last year and recommend hiring full time staff. I still have not used any outsourcing agency or task sourcing site like fiverr.

          TrafficGrab is based a round a real multi-million dollar business rather than these hobby businesses people are running where they place for $5 jobs all day.

          Ideally you are NOT the one doing any of the work after you build this out.

    I watched the FOUR high content, no sales videos on the sales page (love the way he set that up going to use that for my own stuff) and I bought the program expecting an upsell. Guess what, there isn't one, not a single OTO, not oh buy the way you need this stuff too to make this work. Going through the course now, will post my review as soon as I go through it all.

      Yep, it's an upsell free zone. The new stuff being added to Traffic Grab just magically shows up as he uploads it so he's got stuff that could have been upsells...but he's giving it to you.

      I hope his new sales model catches on in the market. It will force product owners to sell on value rather than hype and scarcity.

    Here it is in short.

    I have been through James Schramko's traffic grab 4 times now. Yes that's not a miss type I have literally been through it 4 times already. As I got access to the beta. At the moment this is the be all and end all traffic resource that you need. You don't need to buy another traffic product, if you can name one product that covers over 12 different areas of traffic in some solid detail. I will be amazed!

    You honestly cannot fault the guy I have been to his Fast Web Formula 2. I have got both his FWF 1 & 2 DVD's that he gave to me. Just because he is a real genuine bloke for helping people. Yep there is no upsell, want to know why because he believes in a life long customer not getting every bit of money out of you in the first date! Like most $2000 programs.

    AS he helps you grow your business you obviously will buy more $$$$ products for him. Heck I have I am even part of his silvercircle which with his guidance has allowed me to work on what I love. Which is teaching outsourcing and systems. So if you have any questions or queries I suggest you watch his first four modules. That are FREEE!!!!!! with no opt-in nothing.

    I could not honestly believe that he is selling it for the price he is. This could easily be a $4000 product that I would have happily paid for. It is so good that my team of 15 heros and I will be spending mon-wed doing a bootcamp just around Traffic grab to refine the system we have made from it. It is that good, I am willing to pause 3 days of production for my team to learn it?

    If this has not convinced you that this is the best traffic generation their is to date. Well I don't know what else too say.

    Look I am offering a bonus with traffic grab like any other smart marketer out there.

    However this is not a paid testimonial and I am not looking to make money from it so if you want to check it out go see Traffic Grab Targeted Traffic by James Schramko.

    I am just supporting the bloke that has done soo much for me.

            I picked this up last night to go through the alternative paid traffic parts to see what insights I could acquire to start some campaigns. From what I've seen so far, the training style, over the shoulder views of his own campaigns to see how they work, and specific resources mentioned stick out the most to help folks move along efficiently.

            I'm all about finding resources and tools to add to the rolodex, tie together, and then put to use... which this course covers very well.

            The pacing is VERY well done.

            The 'by the way, here's another tip' or 'you can also do this' nuggets mentioned are very solid, which seems to be what Jesus is referring to above as the sweet insiders tips.

            Definitely plenty of 'meat without the filler' training and the multiple format content delivery is a win for everyone as well.

    I've taken a look at the videos.

    This training goes beyond traffic. It also mentions conversion and leverage tactics in 2 separate videos. These are 2 vital elements of online marketing that are normally sold *separately* as upsells. Not here...they're free bonuses.

    As for the traffic training itself, I've started watching the videos and I'm very impressed. Free and paid are both covered.

    Just a small warning...this is not basic stuff...this is intermediate to advanced level training. When James says "use tracking links", you should know how to do that already.

    This leads to some explanation regarding the delivery format. For most of the videos, James uses Keynote presentations with relevant slides and screenshots (not just text) and a "mentoring style" narrative.

    James walks you through the traffic methods and explanations in a "here's the big picture" style. He includes the "how" and "why" along with sweet insider tips and sites that I haven't heard mentioned anywhere. Not really surprised, though, since James is usually the one that exposes these cutting-edge tips and tricks. (Which then get resold and rehashed to death by others.) Look out for a Yahoo Pipes explosion in the WSO area.

    There are also many step-by-step PDF's included that fill in the missing gaps on the video training. I also understand there's even more content coming soon.

    Conclusion and Rating:
    5 Stars for over-delivering on great content.

    5 Stars for the upsell-free zone.

    5 Stars that there's still some great teachers out there.

    Rockin' and refreshing stuff, James.

    By the way, the reason there aren't any upsells is probably because James is offering a rare 30-day trial to SuperFastResults in the training area. This method of "over-delivery" and trust building is a new phenomenon that I see various marketers employing to transition one-time buyers into their long-term continuity. Up and coming marketers should take heed.

    You would expect a course that is created by a respected internet marketer like James to be priced a helluva lot more than this.

    It is truly the bargain of the century and probably the most comprehensive traffic course I have seen.

    I really believe that this is more than a traffic course it is about other aspects like conversion/leverage/research/mind set that could be stand alone products on their own.

    I have had the chance to go all the way through this training once
    and it is amongst the best that I have seen online. It is comprehensive,
    very well presented and I recommend it without hesitation.

    TrafficGrab stands out as quality - quite rare these days.

    I know James only slightly and it is some time since I heard from him.
    For his reasons, and out of the blue, I received a free copy, which is
    quite a measure of the man himself. (I am not an affiliate).

    I think it fair to say that some experience of internet marketing is
    required, but with all the information available today, even that can
    be relatively easily obtained.

      Like someone else said, this is probably the best "process" oriented traffic course out there today and the price is ridiculous - James is the man (and he's a Sydneysider which makes him even cooler).

      I literally download the MP3's onto my iPhone for walks and gym trips - listening to 28 minutes on something like Facebook traffic makes the time on the bike fly by!

      I also like James' business model of full time quality staff which as I grow my business I intend to emulate.

      This stuff isn't for newbies though, I think the spaghetti bowl would lose most of them. I recently had the HD version blown up to A2 and laminated so that I could pin it to my whiteboard with magnets.

      If you want another well priced Traffic product that explains a bit more and is a little less process oriented, try Chad Hamzeh's Traffic Blackbook - it totally over-delivers as well!

    its a lot, lot of information. You can go over it in a few hours, sit back and watch one video after the next.

    I decided to just take one module or how he calls it phase at a time. Starting at the beginning (free video).

    I found its best, no matter if you have a product (money site) or not. Start at the beginning. Take video one, watch it and try to take every step he talks about.

    If you have a product or money page, do it too. Check if you got everything like he has it. Make sure to cover the once you don't have.

    the traffic sources are really plenty and you need a lot of stuff, some you have when you did what was in the free video, others you have to create.

    I say, if you can outsource content creation at least if you can pay for good content or if its not your strong part.

    Stick to the implementation of the traffic as outlined in TrafficGrab. Do this, honest do it once. Because it is hard to explain to anyone and you will have a harder time to control if everything is done correct.

    I am currently filling the gaps I found watching the free video.

    I was just wondering how people are doing following these methods?

    I'm pretty good in the SEO department, but with the recent changes in Google, I'm thinking learning some other approaches to traffic would be pretty smart.

    From what I have heard of James, he seems to be one of the more standup guys around, but I was just seeing how much of this is still relevant in a post Panda 3.3, decimated blog network landscape.

    Right on.

    I feel strong from a site structure point of view, and I've survived Panda from an SEO standpoint, but Google's got the bejeezus scared out of me. It feels like there's a big clearing coming that will make the recent changes seem quaint by comparison.

    I'm looking forward to going through the course and leaving a current review here.

    I need more traffic. Well, I guess we all do, really.
