Extreme Niche Empires is available to the public on April 28, 2011. I received a copy of the entire course earlier this week, and I'm hoping this review will help anybody trying to make money online.

The main Extreme Niche Empires courses consists of about 13 videos. All together I think it was about 6 hours of training. There is something different about this course as opposed to other courses on the market. This is a course that leaves no stone unturned. There is missing piece to the puzzle. It is one of those courses that you can very easily take action as your watching the course.

However, I had a very good feeling this would be the outcome, after purchasing other products from the same creator. Just to name a few of those products, you might have heard about Firestorm SEO, or Backlink Booster. Sensational products, that I have achieved great success. Extreme Niche Empires is by far a top of the line product. Now having said that let me tell you a little bit about the product

Module #1 - Introduction This is a simple introduction that lays down the foundation. He does a very good job explaining exactly what you can achieve from this course.

Module #2 - Foundation For Success -This is something that is not reviewed in any other course. He helps you set up your base foundation for a business, not just a website. When I was done watching this video I decided to apply for an LLC Business.

Module #3 - Power Niche Research -Ok in this module, same kind of idea we've been present for finding niches. However, the keyword research module was unbelievable. Forget about using Market Samurai, Nicro Niche Finder, or any of those other tools. He will teach you things about the Google Keyword tool that you did not even know existed. I found somewhere around 20 keywords in about a half hours time using this method.

Module #4 - The Cash Core - This is a module that was very necessary for the course, but most of the things he mentions in this course and experienced marketer will already know about. He covers Adsese, Amazon, Clickbank, Commission Junction. However, there was one source he mentioned in here, that I had never came across, and all I can say is that one resource was pure GOLD.


Module #5 - Domains and Hosting - Again this is necessary to have a complete course. In the video you are going to hear about the most popular domain registar's and hosting companies. Without mentioning names I'm sure you know which ones I'm talking about. I will tell you, even though I thought I knew everything there was to know, he does something with the set up of your domains and websites, that forced me to set up about 200 of my websites in a different manner. This one tactic right here, will make your life easier in the long run.

Module #6 - Installing And Optimizing your Site - All I can say is WOW. This is what your paying for right here! He will show you how to tweak your wordpress site, like nobody else has even done. He not only shows you which plugins you need, you actually watch over his shoulder as he sets up the plugins one by one. I'll give you a pointer, if your using the plugin AllInOne Seo, your really going to dig this module, cause he's got an alternative to that plugin, that will skyrocket your SEO.

Module #7 - Authority Content - This is the meat and potatoes. This guy is real smart. He knows what Google wants to see, and what it takes to rank well. Once again, this is something that is often overlooked in most courses in the IM market. I've got this on autopilot, using outsource tactics he shows you in the advanced series.

Module #8 - Cash Fountains - So in this module he gives you a new spin on actually setting up Adsense. I've neve actually seen adsense set up to look as though it's part of the navigation of the site. What if I told you he's got another trick that takes your clickbank links and makes it also look like Adsense. He also, shows you how to set up Amzaon widgets and carousels. Never before have I seen so much monetization on blog. Here is the really cool thing, you're probably familiar with the infamous heatmap theme? That theme costs about $70, Well he is giving you a copy of this theme that he had created especially for this course.

Module #9 - Auto Traffic Siphons - Not only does he show you how to set up the foundation, and customize your settings and plugins. He then goes into advanced tactics for RSS Feeds, Twitter integration, Pinging, and other tactics to increase your traffic. There was one tactic in particular that really caught my attention, it has to do with RSS feeds, and using another service, definitely something I had never came across before.

Module #10 - Auto Content Feeding - THIS IS THE COOLEST PART! This is where I think this guy has lost his marbles. Your first going to learn how to set up that foundation of your business. Next your going to learn what it takes to make your site an "Authority" site in Googles eyes, now he's going to show you how to keep feeding the site with autocontent, which is building up your traffic, you ranking, and ultimately your income without having to do any work. This guy actually made an auto content plugin that he is including in the course for free. You have nothing to buy, he's providing the templates, plugins, and blueprints for you at no extra cost.

Module #11 - Boosting your Authority Content - So now that were rocking and rolling and our original content is in place, are autocontent is feeding daily, it's time to Boost our authority in the Eyes of Google. You will learn about advanced Backlinking tactics that will give you the extra boost that you need to ultimately make you a lot of money.

Module #12 - Finalization and Launch - You're getting to the point, where your work is done. There a few little tweaks you need to do to the widgets area, and the footer. This is very important to build up your credibility to Google. When I saw this module, I was forced to revamp about 200 of my sites once again.

Module #13 - Growing Your Empire - The purpose of this module is simple. Now that you've gone through all the work and perfected your template, you just need to clone it and build up your empire. He actually teaches you how to do this, with minimal hassle. To be honest I learned this in a different course on cloning, but that one course alone cost me about $97, he's including the same information.

Ok, so there you go. That is the base product of Extreme Niche Empires, a review of somebody that has actually completed the entire course, and is implementing every strategy he mentions.

This course will cost $47 on April 28. This is very easily a $1997 course. I would know, because I bought another SEO course from a very well known marketer this time last year. I can honestly tell you Extreme Niche Empires flat out smokes that course by far. I only hope the creator hasn't shot himself in the foot offering this course at such a low price. You really are buying GOLD, this will honestly change your life, if you just take action.

I'm not going to go into a lot of detail, but there are Add on's that are definitely worth mentioning. It is for more advanced users. More SEO tactics, advanced RSS strategiies, outsourcing your Extreme Niche Empire, and advanced auto content startegies. For me I can definitely implement every one of these advanced strategies. I beleive he is also offering a complete done for your webiste. All the tweaks have been done, the plugins all configured. All you need to do is add your content, few minor customizations, and your ready to rock n' roll. I opted in to buy this template with the Firstorm SEO course. I was pretty sure I had it all set up, but just wanted to make sure it was perfectly set up before I began to clone all my sites.

People that have implemented all the strategies your about to learn are making upwards of $20,000 evey month. My good friend Jim is acutally making about $10,000 a month from Adsense alone. I am done buying the other products on the internet. I don't read the email I get from the other promoters, instead I am only focused on my empire. Extreme Niche Empires.

Let me know if you have any questions. You'll thank me later.

      This is the course that we have all bought ALL those other courses hoping to find.

      Extreme Niche Empires is a course that takes you by the eyeballs AND keyboard, tells you the where, what, how, when and why things need to be done and shows you exactly how to do them. No stuff and nonsense, no wasted time. Sean shows us clearly and precisely how to actually set up our internet businesses.

      I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of Extreme Niche Empires last Saturday. My way of learning is to watch a video; then watch and do. Just like you would in a real institution of higher learning. For any high school or college graduate you will relate well with this system of learning. This course is the REAL University of Internet Marketing ~ a place of learning with a guaranteed outcome. But like all Educational Institutions, if you don't work, you don't get the degree. Here if you don't put the work in, you won't end up with a real internet marketing business.

      I have never wanted to recommend anything as much as I do this course. I am by nature ultra reserved and conservative.

      Extreme Niche Empires destroyed that need along with the many myths it busts. If you are really serious about getting a real money earning, self-supporting, growing business working at home on the internet, then this course will truly show you how if you do the work!

      I have now started earning from listening to Sean's other products and I can see my income consistently growing each week. Because Sean has taught me the business of Internet Marketing, I am barely affected (most not at all!!) by Google's hiccups. This folks, is how it's done.

      Are these extras really helpful/necessary? Are they One-Time-Offers or are they available at the same price whenever/if-ever I decide to purchase?

        Hi Debbie...I'm not sure precisely what all the optional extras are because we (inner circle group) got the whole package as beta testers. But what I will promise you is that in six years of looking (and buying!) diligently, I have never, ever, come across such a whole package of learning about how to set up an information marketing business. No hype, no fuss, no--, just good, do-as-I-do and this-is-how information. The proof for me is the increased earnings and they are coming in steadily.

        Access to the Skype room alone is worth a kings ransom.

    Google aren't fans of Auto content but it is a part of their revenue steam, is not evil (it helps people) so no they aren't going to shut you down.

    But remember the core of the process, according to Chad there is Authority content too. If you were just to build a spam blog it would not get traffic. That is what makes this a better option, building authority instead of a bunch of spammy content

    I bought ENE along with the extras and I have watched the first couple of videos.

    I haven't really gotten into the meat of the course yet, but I like the way that Sean has set things up.

    ENE looks like a great product.

      Just purchased Extreme Niche Empires, largely influenced by Chads brilliant review. Thanks Chad. It looks good but there is NO sound WHATSOEVER on ANY of the videos inside the course! Sound working fine on all my other programs as usual.
      Bought a few products but never known anything like this before.
      Anyone else got this problem?
      ( I have sent support a quick short email )

          It gets worse...
          Further to my post no 22 regarding no sound in ANY of the videos in members area.
          I logged out with the idea of logging back in again ( using the link in the confirmation email) to see if it had corrected itself.
          Now I can't even log in.
          I must have been amongst the first buyers, so it could be a server screw up.
          Sean is good but it's annoying when you buy something and then spent your time submitting support requests.
          I never had this happen before.
          Anyone else had this problem with E N E?
          Thanks

            I see you had a ticket about this from what I heard from my support crew. I have not heard of any issues with sound but it does sound like a browser issue or flash issue. They seem to be playing well here. However, if you continue to have issues please let my team know and check out their reply to your ticket and we will see what we can do.

            All the best

              My thanks to Cypherslock, Barrny and Sean.
              At about the same time as Cypherslock said it could be a browser issue, I had a very prompt reply from Lisa at E N E support suggesting the same thing.
              I thus not only shut down my browser but also switched off, and then switched the pc back on again. ( Everything outside of E N E was working as normal, I keep everything updated )

              Problem is still that I can't even log in using the link supplied. So I think support are now checking that out.
              Looks like it will turn out to be one of those things that happen when lots of people are trying to purchase at the same time.
              Just hoping I can get access soon. Thanks again.

                Thanks to Sean, and Lisa at E N E support I now have access and there is sound on the videos. No idea what the problem was but they fixed it at their end very promptly and very courteously.
                The course from what I see at first glance looks very good as you would expect from Sean.
                The key will be to do exactly as Sean outlines. Thanks

          That is an interesting point except they make millions of dollars from blogs posting content on sites. I have been using this for years as have many others and never had a single problem. Not only that, you don't have to use Adsense. We show you about 5-10 different ways to monitize your empires the right way.

          Also, note that we are not just "Autoblogging" here. We are doing something very different called Authority Autoblogging, something Google actually loves. Take a look and you will see what I mean

              Hi There,
              The focus of this course is actually working Google for what works and then use the autofeeder in the background. It pulls articles, videos, questions and products from Amazon as well. While a lot of 1-click-wonder websites got slapped most of these types of sites increased in ranking and traffic.

                Just got innnn! I did watch all the pre-launch videos and was considering getting on board already, but as soon as I read the awesome reviews on here I bought the full course + upsells in a rush... Just makes total sense to me after reading you guys experiences so far...

                One question tho, how or when will I get my website?! Wanted to introduce myself on the forums and ask about that, but it says access denied, even though I got the whole enchilada? Haha...

                Looking forward to build an empire asap.

                Edit: No worries, found the website... But still got no access to the forums... Anyway, I'm sure this will be sorted soon too,haha. All good!

                  Just a question...

                  Can I apply or use your method (Extreme Niche Empire) to perk up my existing sites or blogs?

                  Or is it more toward creating new site/blog from scratch?

                  I actually just realize that I got a lot of small blogs that I feel that can be scaled up to earn more passive income for me.... so it will be great if I can apply your methods to energize/revitalize all these sites.

                  Thanks!

                    Hi Wray...yes, you can use this method with ease to perk up those pesky sites that need revitalizing. This does more than revitalize them though as it puts them on a body building diet so they move along nicely in time. This is not a system where things jump to the front immediately (although it has happened) but rather a process of sure and continual growth that Google likes.

                  Can anyone please let me know what the upsells are and how much they cost? These days I am afraid to buy anything -especially if the initial offer is too cheap- because I know that I'll be hit with one or more upsells. I just hate upsells! I'd be very grateful if someone could reveal what the upsells cost and what they are so that I will be prepared when I order the course.
                  Thank you very much!

                    You don;t really need to buy the upsells.. If you don't have the budget then just grab the course and surely, it'll make you the income you're looking for if you keep focus and take action.. As simple as that mate..

                      That's absolutely right and Sean states that clearly BEFORE you buy any upsell. The basic version is a 100% complete system. But the upsells just made sense to me as they give me a fast start, more options to tweak and automate and as stated above already, the possibility to double-check my own efforts to get everything right without any difficulties at all...

                      Ask Sean if you could buy them later on when you've made some money if you want them. Guess they'd cost you a bit more then, but anyway... Lot's of product owner would do it this way...

                    Hey Sean and fellow warriors, Will this work without the up sells, In other words if I do everything in the $47 coarse alone will I be able to rank these sites without buying the upsells.

                    I guess what I'm asking is, is there anything that is going to be with held from the coarse that will make the system less effective unless you buy the up sells, or are the up sells just enhancers to make life a bit easier to do this process?

                    reason I ask is I really want to get this and I'm sure it's great, just can't get the up sells at this time.

                    thanks guys, hey Sean if you can answer this one with a yes I'm sold!
                    Thanks, jace

                      Hi Jace,

                      Like you, I had become a jaded skeptic. And then I took a recommendation from another trusted IM who told me to "take a chance and make up my own mind" and that was how I met up with Sean. Best advice I received before I met up with Sean....and since then, my brain is constantly on a bullet-train trying to absorb all the new advice and other stuff I am learning, have learned and implemented.

                      The important word here is implemented. Sean can spew his brains out but unless you use the information you receive, it will be like throwing pearls before swine (as the bible says) and will do no one any good.

                      But if you use the information in the first part of Sean's extreme niche empires, you WILL start the snowball rolling towards earning income. And he has guaranteed you have 60 days to do that. You work the information that you receive and you will be in a position to buy the rest...and once you get access to the inner circle skype room...well, you had better be ready for some very serious learning, friendship and fun.

                      Jace, the best advice I can offer you is "Take the chance... then make up your own mind"

                    Bob has a great concern there at post #41. It would be really helpful if anyone could describe the upsells/downsells and related prices for this offer. This seems to be such a fantastic offer. I am sure that Danny is right, and this course stands on its own.
                    Thanks to Sean, Chad, Minbani, and all who have provided great info here.

          I think Sean answered this himself as he always does....we are very spoiled in 'the inner circle' as we get our questions answered very quickly. Something I'd like to add to Seans comment re Google adsense on autoblogs. Previously, I would have advised taking a great deal of care but as Sean says, he shows many other ways around this potential problem. If it was just an autoblog like we have been seeing in the past, then you would have a point but not with an AUTHORITY autoblog and that is what we are building here.

          On the other hand, if we didn't add Adsense into the mix of potential advertisers, it would be like Rupert Murdoch refusing Government advertising because he didn't agree with their philosophy ~ and I don't see that happening, do you? :-) Google is the biggest source of advertisers on the internet and they need suitable publications on which to showcase their advertisers.

          With an authority autoblog we are simply providing Google with the ideal platform...one they are proud and happy to show their advertisements on.

          ENE is much, much more than just a way to build autoblogs. It is about learning how to build a whole information publishing business ~ as an authority business. It is NOT about "cash and dash". This is a method; a system that is scaled to grow naturally just as every brick and mortar business does.

    i hate an upsell ! especially when it related to the product sold and it's a One Time Offer.. It's just like "Yes, you bought it !... but you know what..the real gems is here !.. if you don't buy it know you're going to miss it forever"... It's psychological "toy" that internet marketer really proud off... it works for most people though...

      So much for the $10 discount offer - blank page. I don;t understand why the pages with special offers aren't taken down when they expire. Now I have to go through all the sale's crap video to get to the buy page since there's no shortcut. Don't know if it's worth the bother really - not a great marketing strategy and it makes question the value of the course if they can't get they're sales page right.

        Hello, it may have been an issue with server on visitor count or something, I actually reviewed the whole sales page process and it went through all the steps without a hitch before launch. As part of the beta tester crew it was our job to test each video and sales page to make sure they all worked.

        My personal testimonial on implementing just a portion of these strategies to an existing site. I did the facebook and twitter connection to my blog, I saw in 24 hours, links, and visitors to my blog which had no traffic at all. I was pleased to say the least. Depending on Google for your only traffic source is not good these days as we see how they can change the game at a moments notice.

        I am not finished with the blog, but from what I can see, these small changes made due to what the program teaches has turned things around actually overnight. To be fair, my unique content has been sitting on there for a month. I also used an older domain of mine (over 1 year old) and this new technique brought interested visitors in.

        The way this program has been marketed and put together is refreshing to a lot of folks, no garbage and the amount of instruction given is over the top. This program can be implemented completely on it's own without upsells, they just make the job a bit faster and save you time. The one thing most folks dislike is having to buy a missing piece in an upsell to make a program work, not true here as all is given in the main offering.

        I hope this helps clear the air a bit for the rest of the folks on the fence.

          Jim,

          Thanks for the information, most appreciated.

          Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see the Advanced training offer and therefore don't know what content it adds.

          Are you able to tell me what the Advanced training offers above and beyond the main product offering?

          Also can you elaborate on the website that was presented? Are all the sites in the same niche, how are they monetized, how much input is necessary to publish them to the web, etc??

          Thanks again and take care,
          Allan

            Hello Allan,

            There is some advanced traffic strategies along with a plugin that will help.

            The monetization methods are the usual ones, ad revenue, products from various programs and posted as affiliate. There is so many networks out there to add related content and products for sale.

            Some of the advanced videos relate to taking your online biz to an upper level.

            The website niches are not pre-selected, that is up to you. Only you can decide what area of attack after doing your niche and keyword research. There is training for this as well.

            You can also apply this to existing sites and add some help to boost those.

            Normal wordpress installs are very simple, this program will turn that install to a traffic generating site. Normal site promotion to give it a kick is all that is really needed.

            I hope that helped a bit,


            Jim

    Offers as I saw them:
    1. $47 with a $10 discount exit pop = $37 then upon purchase you are taken to...
    2. $197 "we'll give you a website" - if you decline this you are taken straight to checkout and will miss the third offer which is...
    3. $97 for "advanced" training

    I have the $37 main course and missed the $97 offer. I do not see the $97 offer available within the main members area.

    Hope this helps to clarify.

      This is what I experienced, no opportunity to look at the "Advanced" Training.

      Perhaps the advanced training was removed from the sales funnel.

      I think the upsell for the done for you website is perfect for those who don't already have hosting and domains registered. I didn't see the $10 off but oh well, it's worth way more than what he's charging so he must be banking on the up sell with the recurring hosting costs. Nothing wrong with that - paying the man with the plan is better than paying for hosting elsewhere.

      Guess why? If the website really is yours and you control it with your own cpanel and FTP access then it's well worth the price at $197.00 but that's not the real reason why. That's just a benefit.

      The real reason for buying the up sell and signing up for monthly hosting is because that makes you one of his CUSTOMERS for life. As long as you have that website, you are his customer and that means you will have ongoing benefits and information only his customers are given. Newbies who climb ion board this train will be the lucky winners!!

      I retired in 2005 at 43 and now I give away websites like these for FREE [hosting excluded]

      When you make at least $100+ per month, we split the profit 80/20 and YOU get the 80% Until then, you keep 100% and I'll help you drive traffic, get backlinks and put the domain in your name too!

        Guess you've got that one in on the wrong end, thriftgirl... The ready made website template is delivered in a ZIP FILE TO UPLOAD ON YOUR OWN SEVER. Completely tweaked and optimised, ready to put content of choice on... Dunno where you've got that info from, or maybe the OTO has been changed since friday night...LOL, but I don't think so. I have my site ready for download and scheudled for installation on my hostgator this week, by yours truly. My reason to buy it was to have a proffessional template on what I learn and implement in the course... That way I can be sure that I don't miss a damn thing. Also the leverage of having a nice blank optimized template wasn't so unimportant as a buying decision may I add, hehe....

        Other than that your on the money with your review... Extreme over-delivery and therefore a huge bargain in any way. Great presentation, worth every cent. Even or evem MORE so with the upsells... Hmmm, leverage and automation. Ahhh, yes please... I'll have me some of that... It's just how I roll they say

          Truly the best complete course I ever purchased, outstanding value. I didn't take the pre-made site because I've been a website developer for years so I didn't feel it was value for me, but it surely must be something great for a total newbie.

          I really enjoyed every module. Videos are usually long 25 mins+ but Sean is an awesome lecturer, entertaining and goes in great detail on everything.

          Unfortunately, because I declined the pre-made site I wasn't offered the advanced training. I'm not saying I would have jumped in on it, as I don't usually jump too far too fast, but probably other people who declined the website (because they already knew how to make one) would have liked to be offered the advanced training. Maybe a link to the advanced training could be added to the members area for interested members. I know I would start by implementing the core course and if I got results I would definitely buy the advanced training then.

          Overall, this course is awesome and gives you every little detail you need to take action. This is a change from many other courses which tell you to take action but leave you with too much to be guessed.

          I would definitely recommend this product.

      Hi,

      I recently purchased extreme niche empires only a couple of months ago back in Jan 2014.

      I downloaded up to module 7 and haven't logged on for a while so just today I tired to logon to get the next set of videos.

      it says page cannot be find and the it directs to you Sean's innercircle page.

      I have put quite a lot of work into this and I am hoping to obtain the next series of videos.

      the link is http://extremenicheempires.com/members/wp-login.php

      I have entered a call with the helpcentre. Hopefully someone will get back to me ASAP... I did place a ticket on there before and never received a response back.

      I will be very disappointed if I cannot logon in order to finish the my course. I have put a lot of time effort and money into this.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you,

      Craig

    Those are one time offers. If you decline the site then there are no options for the advanced training. We may make a change there but we will see. If you want the advanced training please contact our support center and we will see what we can do.

    All the best

      Hello!

      Yes, I have completed this course several times. Being an advanced marketer myself, I can tell you there are parts of the course I have to skip because it is also tailored towards somebody that does not have any experience with Internet Marketing.

      You will learn how to set up a host, buy a domain name, do your keyword research, and so much more.. However the tactics and tricks that are shown in Extreme Niche Empires is very desirable to the most experienced of marketers, and yet it's easy to understand for somebody just getting into this type of business.

      The creator has done a very good job catering to everybody, no matter what your experience. I hope that helps you. Cheers!

      I too was annoyed at missing the $10 discount but after reading all the positive reviews I decided to go ahead and buy the course. After going through the whole course I am really glad I did.

      As a relative newbie I've tried out a range of offerings but this course is by far the best - I even have a bit of an understanding about why my previous attempts at IM haven't worked that well!

      Sean takes you through every step in the process of building a site with explanations of each step in detail. He even includes stuff about record keeping so the important information you need to keep on managing and maintaining your site is easily accessible. I found some of the material very complex and I'll have to review the videos a few times before I get it all. That wouldn't be a problem except for the way the site runs which is a real bummer.

      There are no controls on the videos so if you miss something you have to go all the way back to the beginning and as each video is 30 minutes long (except for module 6 which is almost an hour) and the constant pauses due to buffering (and a number of others experience this as well) make the review process absolutely torturous and many, many times longer than it needs to be. This is further compounded by the shell being a real resource hog at times consuming a third of my CPU cycle. Allowing the videos to be downloaded would overcome this and would be the only improvement I could suggest for the course.

      For the price though it is absolutely crazy value. I hope that the advanced course will become available later once I've got my head around the basic course.

      Course content 10/10. Accessibility 3/10

      Edit - I should also have said Value 100/10

        I have to disagree with DuuDadz. There are controls on all the videos. You might want to refresh your browser or use another one. I'm using Chrome and it is working fine. Because I'm taking lots of notes as I go through the videos I've had to go back numerous times to catch the information. I bought the course yesteray and I've already watched up to Module 7 and I have to say that this is an amazing course. The info on SEO is spectuclar. He also is good at explaining everything. I can't wait to tweak my current sites and also start from scratch with his methods. I'm relatively new to IM - about a year and I have bought tons of other info products that didn't come close to the amount of information I've gotten so far with this course.

          You are right, I updated my Firefox and my flash player and the controls are now there - apologies to all about that. Unfortunately it didn't fix the constant buffering nor the hogging of CPU resources.

          I agree with you about the content - I went through the full course yesterday and my head still hurts from trying to cram so much info inside such a limited space - it will take a while because I'm going to do little bits at a time until I get it all up and running.

        This is an excellent program that provides an A to Z approach for potentially generating large amounts of income from niche websites; Module 3 (power niche research) was well worth the price of the program in my opinion. You can generate revenue from Google AdSense, ClickBank products, and Amazon.com products.

        If 10 niche sites (for example) generate 220K+ monthly visits and if 1/33 visitors click on an AdSense ad that pays $1.5 per click; then one could generate $10K in monthly revenue. Then you can rinse and repeat by creating more niche sites and more monthly income. More importantly, you can use your profits to automate and scale up the entire system by using a outsourced team.

        The program's core training consists of:

        * identifying niches and corresponding keywords with solid PPC you can rank on the first page of the search engines

        * setting up your domains, web hosting, and WordPress websites

        * installing plug-ins and themes and further optimizing your sites including on-page SEO

        * creating your authority content or unique 500 word articles for each of your niche sites; around 12 featured articles per niche site when you start out

        * implementing AdSense ads, ClickBank products, and Amazon.com products within your featured articles and automated content

        * automatically feeding automated content (videos, answers or reviews(?), products, and articles) to your niche sites

        * using RSS feeds, social networks, press releases, and other sources to drive targeted traffic (for the most part automatically) to your niche sites

        * growing your niche sites by cloning one of your previous niche sites

        The upsell included a niche site clone. Thus, one can save time without having to create a niche site from scratch. Thus, I can modify this clone and use the revised clone to create more niche sites moving forward.

        The advanced training was really enjoyable. It consisted of:

        * building a list of subscribers and buyers using a pair of plug-ins

        * marketing MRR/PLR products, affiliate products, and nano-continuity membership sites to generate additional revenue streams for your niche sites

        * using certain plug-ins and themes to increase your niche sites’ effectiveness and traffic and to rewrite automated content

        * managing updates and changes for all of your niche sites at once with ease and using VPS servers to effectively manage your niche sites’ growth and to reduce server crashing growing pains

        * outsourcing and creating project manager led teams for niche site creation, content creation, content integration, SEO activities, and so on; to fully automate the process and scale up your business to greater heights

        * generating more traffic for your niche sites via advanced SEO strategies, software, services, and SEO hosting


        My Next Steps for Taking Action:

        * I sent out a bid to acquire two full-time VAs to write 120 500 word articles and 150 300-400 word articles. I will use this material as featured articles and autoresponder follow-up emails for 10 niche sites I will create by the end of the first week of June.

        * Next month I will repeat the process by creating 10 more niche sites.

        * For each niche site, I will set up squeeze pages, sales funnels, and nano-continuity membership sites

        * Afterwards, I will use some of the advanced SEO strategies to generate more traffic to these niche sites

        I will post my results from time to time.

          This is great news. Your review was AWESOME! I really hope people are understanding the true value in this course. There is one thing you are missing out on.

          That is where the true GOLD is. I don't want to break the rules and post a link, but you can see it in my signature. Let me know, as I can see if I can add your to our Skype Group!

          Good luck with your continued success,
          Cheers, Chad

    This is seriously THE BEST course/product/service I've ever found on how to build a business online. And I have to say, I am enjoying checking my adsense account these days too. Right now, it's nothing to write home about but seeing a steady increase tells me I'm on the right track....finally.

    If anyone is having a problem with pausing the video, just click the play button. Then when you've finished implementing what you are up to, just hit play again and it goes on from there. And it does wait for you...LOL....

    I read where people have been mentioning the advanced upsells? I am a member of the inner circle success centre and I can guarantee you it is right up there with helpful, friendly people and absolutely "chockers" with extra "bits n pieces" of extra information.

My reason to buy it was to have a proffessional template on what I learn and implement in the course... That way I can be sure that I don't miss a damn thing. Also the leverage of having a nice blank optimized template wasn't so unimportant as a buying decision may I add, hehe....

        Other than that your on the money with your review... Extreme over-delivery and therefore a huge bargain in any way. Great presentation, worth every cent.

Maybe a link to the advanced training could be added to the members area for interested members. I know I would start by implementing the core course and if I got results I would definitely buy the advanced training then.
        Thanks for correction on the OTO Ready-Made Site. That is quite a SHOCK to the normal guru marketer system which just confirms my suspicions were right - always listen to your sixth sense!! I just assumed hosting for life was the pay-off but NO? You can use your own hosting... Wow...that means you are not buying more GURU products - clearly, this is a PROFESSIONAL Marketer.

        I think I'll have to go back and buy it again so I can get that template!! WARNING: I am going to think out loud again... Maybe, just maybe the advanced training is NOT offered to anyone who didn't upgrade because they won't have a the foundation and the optimized site that training is geared to work for.

        Maybe you need the site built and optimized from the ground up or you would just be wasting your money if you buy it. WHAT? Do I hear the words, Save your money. I'm NOT selling you something that won't work for you?

      Hey Darren,

      It is an understatement when I tell you he has left no stone unturned. It is not only a business in a box, but it is an Empire in a box. Literally. You will learn how to run your business from A-Z. Then you will be taken to a part of the course that is a little overwhelming for a person new to this kind of thing. However, you will catch on in a very short time frame. He has done a great job feeding it to you little by little.

      I do highly recommend the advanced course. In that course you learn advanced SEO tricks, better ways to feed your blog, managing your empire, outsourcing your tasks and so much more. Now, to give you guys a little heads up... It did not stop there. Today I received a bonus video to the course teaching you how to add fancy headers to your blog, that will help your conversions and ultimately help your bottom line. If you guys have questions feel free to PM Me.
      Cheers!

        Thanks for the great reviews. Unfortunately, the advanced training is only available if one takes the pre-built website. I did not opt for the site because I enjoy building my sites and so, have no opportunity for the advanced training.

        The basic course is excellent though, one of the best purchases I have made in quite some time.

        Thanks,

    The videos are great but I don't really get how this differs from most other auto blogs. Sure, these have a lot more work put into them at the start but I don't see how you avoid getting banned from adsense since they ban those using adsense on scrapped content websites. And I would assume adsense is 80%+ of the revenue from those websites.

    A great course on autoblogging, not sure if I would risk my adsense account though.

      Yeah, a lot of the hype in here is just because he's an active wf'er.

      If the same content came from any of the other more hype-filled vendors, the backlash would be the same

        Since I have completed the entire training; I would not necessarily use the word "hype" for this system. However, I respect your point of view.

        This system uses authority (or unique) content and teaches you how to rewrite the automated content.

        I will get started implementing this program this weekend. Thus, feel free to follow my progress.

        I will post my results at least once a month after my first 10 websites are live. Projected date will be around mid June.

      I hope Sean looks again at this as, I believe one of the great things about this training is that it teaches how to set up the WP platform to be SEO'd to the max.

      That is one of the most important skills to learn. This is especially true for someone new to IM. By simply getting it ready made, although convenient, means that the student will skip through some of the most valuable aspects of the course.

      They should still have the opportunity of getting into some advanced training if the want or need it, though.

      Just my 2c.

        I'm wondering how this compares to Matt Carter's Rapid Profit Formula? No doubt there are differences in approach but if anyone has some insight it would be appreciated. I don't think Matt has an upsell for his best info.

    A brief question regarding ENE and what I need it to do with me. I work as a writer and ONLY a writer. I want to experiment with marketing myself eventually but writing keeps me in a home and puts food on the table, and I'm always looking to expand or improve my services to make sure I can offer clients EXACTLY what they need.

    Does the course have the potential to give me enough information (and that's all I want for now) about marketing, Google algorithms and improving SEO potential for my clients so that I can provide a better all-round service? This isn't a money issue. It's a time issue, and I've wasted many precious hours in the past buying courses that teach me little or nothing. That's all I need to know, because I will go through the course in it's entirity if I purchase, but don't have that much time to lose! It looks a great investment for marketers, but I hope you understand where my particular needs are here and what I'm looking for.

    Just a note, Sean: This is looking like a really creditable product and I'm a great advocate of anything experienced Warriors have to say. Unfortunately, that credibility gets hit hard when there are spelling mistakes within the first few seconds of your video. I forgive mistakes, and hope that others do the same when I make them myself. However, the video is the final thing that anybody is likely to see before making a buying decision, and something as simple as typos or not using a spellchecker can, and probably will, cost you in terms of sales.
    I'm not trying to teach anybody to suck eggs, but it's maybe one for the future. Every video I see has spelling errors and it shouldn't be happening. To be honest, your presentation doesn't rely on text too much. Others do, and they're shocking at times. The 'honesty' aspect was so much better than many of the other videos I've watched and I potentially trust this product, so get involved in some good old-fashioned wrist-slapping and sort it out!

      Hello, I understand how a writer would look at spelling and wonder. I have know Sean for a year, the guy is dyslexic and I just overlook that. His spelling may suffer because his brain is going 1000 mph, I have met him in person and it's the same thing watching him type. No biggy..

      There were beta testers that went in and corrected the spelling on the first video releases. There were some that were re-done or re-burned, and not edited by the group. The program as a whole is way over the top, I have the whole package and it took me days as well to get through it all.

      I have a site that has been converted to the methods, or at least a part of them. The initial reports show me on getclicky that folks are coming in via the new system. I am pleased and am glad to be part of this whole thing.

      I know it's hard to get by the spelling sometimes, but I look at the meat of what is being presented and overlook the rest. The ideas are fresh, and he is the first to try a few of these methods and tests extensively before releasing to any of his customers. The amount of testing that goes into these types of products is way more than I can say of other marketers.

        Thanks for the honest opinions and input, Jim. Again, I'm happy to replace my own abject negativity with positive reviews from long-standing forum members who know the product and vouch for it.

        Much appreciated.

      JMO but the course mentions a plugin, but has nothing to do with SEO or Google and it's algorithms, it uses a unique "auto siphoning" system. Whether it really works as well as said only time will tell (I have no doubt it works I've bought products from Sean before). It uses autoblogging plugins, free versions are provided. And despite what has been said in previous posts about autoblogging getting you banned it won't, it wouldn't ever be mistaken for a MFA site. The videos walk you through setting up your auto siphoning system very well, which in my opinion is the main thing in the course.

        Thanks for the feedback.

        I'm just as keen to learn more about plug-ins and automated systems anyway, so the course looks increasingly like the one I'm looking for. It's entirely for research purposes and I won't be doing anything else with it apart from taking information, but I do want the best information possible, irrespective of price.

        I've completed articles for marketers for some time, but usually on niche topics outside of marketing itself. Moving beyond keywords, densities and all the usual stuff my clients ask for in articles, I want my work to be giving them the best possible opportunity to move through the rankings without compromising on quality, which is essentially my main selling point.

        I will be buying over the weekend, so as not to distract myself from the today's work mountain!

    Hey there. I can tell you that as a writer, this will allow you to setup passive income streams, which is what I'm doing in addition to writing. And Sean is dyslexic, but forgive him any spelling errors. We see it quick because, well, we're writers. But the information is SOLID GOLD. I particularly like the way he does research.

    I will say this: if you do get the course, watch it through in its entirety first. It took me four days or so, so as not to get overwhelmed. Then, start again but this time do it. Even if (like me) your first day only consists of setting up your business site. Take it step-by-step. I find that watching everything first, resting a day or so then doing it in this fashion actually let's you move quicker, because your brain has had a chance to absorb things. There is also a forum, Sean is accessible on Skype and though there is a one-time offer, you can still get access to it at a later date. And (oh yea) if you click away once, then twice you get a $10 coupon. I missed this.

    So I would not hesitate to get this course as it is no-fluff and well-laid out. Consider this too: You could take it a step further and offer setup/seo/etc as a service in addition to writing.

      Exactly the information I needed. Many thanks, and completely appreciated.

      I've been looking for a product for some time, purely for research purposes, that really puts me inside the mind of one of the better (and more realistic) marketers and this looks like it could be the one. As I said earlier, this really isn't about money. I'd pay ten times the price if it saves me time on not having to read through worthless material.

      I was aware of Sean having dyslexia, but assumed somebody else might have completed the video text on his behalf. I do feel that any sort of mistake makes a product less creditable but on the flip side, I trust any reviews from War Room Members implicitly.

      I'll be buying over the weekend. thanks again!

    I'm brand new to IM for personal profits, and Sean's course has made it SO easy to understand everything I need to know. I've had a few technical issues along the way, but those were related to my host - not Sean's course - and were easily resolved through Live Chat with HostGator.

    (By the way, I've used several different hosting platforms for various projects, and HostGator is BY FAR the best in terms of ease of use and technical support.) Go with Sean's suggestions on NameCheap and HostGator if you're a newbie, because that makes it ridiculously simple to follow along in the videos to create your first site.

    I personally purchased the Clone site as well as the advanced training videos, based on the positive feedback here in the Warrior Forum. I would definitely recommend buying the full spectrum for any newbie.

    Thanks for a great product, Sean. And thanks to everyone else who reviewed it here and influenced my decision to buy.

    Put me down for a two thumbs up for this course. It is more than comprehensive. I have purchased and returned a number of IM courses over the past six months but this one is hands down the best I've seen. Top notch videos (and please don't take that for granted. I purchased on course where the audio and video was horrible!) I have had a couple of hiccups leading to the launching of my first site, but support handled my question very quickly. Which does not happen in one of the other courses. Finally, many warriors are leary of the upsells. Sean's upsells do provide value and I highly recommend purchasing them.

    Sean set the standard once again.. wohooo....
    anyway, i just realize after JUST couple of weeks after Extreme Niche Empire released some other Internet Marketer launch as much of "the same" product ( did i say 'rehearsed' product).. and yes you can see some of them in WSO's now...

    It means what sean did is really set the new tone.. the Extreme Niche Empire is for all level of IM even for noobs... if you have been making money as Internet Marketer some module could be simply dead boring (register domain, fantastico, etc).. but you can't resist yourself to not watch it all over again... why ? because there's sometime you find a 'hidden gem' in there...

    the product is recommended...

    Bashworth, yes you can. When you log in you'll see an upgrade link which gives you an option of just the site, or site and advanced training. In the first module you may also be able to get just the advanced training, as Sean mentions to contact support to see. This is going to me my option when I'm ready for it, as I don't need the cloned site but WILL need the training.

    If you Google the course name you can watch the sales letter. Or you can read the review at the top of this thread and get all the info you need. Exit once out of the sales page and you get an offer to see the first 3 modules at no cost. A second exit and you get a ten dollar discount on the course. You can't get both. I opted for the 3 modules, and all I can say is WOW. If the rest of the course is like that, I'm finally going to make this IM thing work for me! I will pay the full $47, but that is an awesome value for the material I have seen already. I am not an affiliate (yet) but you ought to take a look...seriously.

    This is definitely one of my favorite products to recommend to not only my list but my family and friends who are wanting to get into internet marketing!

    I love it when products come out like this because I refuse to recommend a product I don't believe in to my list and for a while it seemed like I was having too promote the same products such as Bring the Fresh, Deadbeat Super Affiliate, Easy Paycheck Formula, etc. to them and then this came out.

    Honestly it has something for both those NEW to internet marketing as well as something for even those who are more experienced but not yet earning a living with it.

      Hello,

      I do agree, Sean's products are outstanding. Heck I have got more value out of his free info videos than some junk that was peddled on WSO's.. I have gone thru Bring The Fresh and CB Profit Storms. Bring The Fresh is good, but CB profit storm is really good too.. Anyhow, I have already setup 3 WP blogs this week. So, does this provide ways of building niche sites for adsense? Or is this niche sites for Clickbank type products or can it be used for Amazon? I really am just interested in autoblogging for Adsense revenue.. I have no experience at all with Adsense.

      I would love to hear some feedback.. Thank you guys

      Is ENE ever going to be a WSO ??

              I dont know if you are talking to me but that is not my affiliate link as a matter of fact that isn't even my site that's a site of one of the inner circle members, a couple of people were talking about Jim the trucker so I directed them to a resource where they can find out more about him and that's all it is.

              MODERATOR. It was still an affiliate link. Please do not do that again.

      I decided to buy the ENE due to the great reviews here. I was sceptical as some of the glowing reviews were from people with affiliate links to ENE or who are promoting the product on their blogs. I also noticed a lot of the reviews are from newbies who are naturally easily impressed as they do not know any better. Nevertheless i bought the $37 version.

      After completing it today, I can confidently say that there is nothing in the course that is new or original that has not been covered in other courses. So for old timers, it is a good refresher course if you have seen it all before. If you have been in a cave somewhere in the past 5 years and have not been using many wordpress plugins or utilizing social media, then this course may actually teach you a thing or two. Nothing you will learn though is going to double your profits overnight or anything like that though. Just the usual RSS submissions, pinging, twitter, etc. kind of stuff.

      However the author though does an excellent job of describing a complete implementable system and also shows newbies and old hands how to use various WP plugins. As a result of this, I think the course is worth buying for $37. I am quite sure that even an old timer will be reminded of some old trick or wp-plugin that they may have not considered using before.

      Will the system work? No, it probably will not. It probably worked very well 3 years ago or until the Google Caffeine update. Since caffeine, poor quality pages just do not really cut it for competitive phrases like "treatment for acne". Getting a page with only 10 -20 unique articles that cost $3-$5 to write will not make you $20 per site these days. Things have changed and I imagine that is why he has released the course.

      The so called secret sauce in his system or "authority auto blogs" is really just your standard auto-blog. There is nothing "authority" about it so I take that it is just for marketing purposes to distinguish his auto blogs from others.

      Having hundreds or thousands of scraped articles and RSS feeded articles and videos onto a site does not mean that it automatically becomes an authority on the subject. This is simply because a site comprised of ten or so $5 articles written by a non native english speaker after 5 minutes of research will not create an credibility whatsoever for the page or site at large. CNN will never quote your site and wikipedia will unlikely ever reference you. In other words, your 10 page site will not become an authority even if it has 1000 RSS feeds building content automatically for that site.

      It is interesting to note that he dedicates a video to show you how to deal with sites that flop. I think in the current SEO climate, many sites will flop simply because the system taught is regressive and is based on what used to work. In my mind , a workable system should work nearly every time, juts like newton's laws. Putting 10 sites up and hoping for the best is not a system to me. For example, ALL of my traffic equalizer sites made a profit, All of my site-build-it sites made money, etc. On the other hand, very few of my xfactor sites made money and even fewer of my MSN loophole sites made anything.

      This is because those failed sytems were regressive. Out of 1000 people who build 1 site each following any "system", 100 or so sites will be successful. To me that is not a good system as 10% of most random efforts will usually produce some success. As a result of this low success rate, that is why such regressive systems are usually NOT scalable. So the dream of owning 30 sites each making $25 a day just becomes a fantasy. I have been online for more than 11 years now and I see such systems regularly. Ask yourself, if you could make $25 per site on autopilot, would you be selling your secrets for $37 while risking pirated access to thousands?

      Based on my sites built in a similar way, such a system as his will currently make you $1-$5 on average if you are lucky. So if you can scale and work at realistic figures for such sites, you will be in profit.

      Saying all of the above though, I was pleased to hear that the author believes that you can easily get 6 times your annual earnings when you want to sell a site. This is good news to me as i have been selling my sites at 10-20 monthly earnings. Six times annual earnings is equivalent to 72 times monthly earnings! So all I have to do is make $460 a day with Adsense and I can then sell my sites for a cool $1,000,000. That is good to hear. I never thought website investors would be happy to wait 6 years to get their money back (assuming they do not change the site). So that titbit alone (if true) has paid for my purchase many times over. I will considerably put up my reserve prices on flippa from now on.

I also noticed a lot of the reviews are from newbies who are naturally easily impressed as they do not know any better. Nevertheless i bought the $37 version.

        After completing it today, I can confidently say that there is nothing in the course that is new or original that has not been covered in other courses. So for old timers, it is a good refresher course if you have seen it all before. If you have been in a cave somewhere in the past 5 years and have not been using many wordpress plugins or utilizing social media, then this course may actually teach you a thing or two. Nothing you will learn though is going to double your profits overnight or anything like that though. Just the usual RSS submissions, pinging, twitter, etc. kind of stuff.

        However the author though does an excellent job of describing a complete implementable system and also shows newbies and old hands how to use various WP plugins. As a result of this, I think the course is worth buying for $37. I am quite sure that even an old timer will be reminded of some old trick or wp-plugin that they may have not considered using before.

        Will the system work? No, it probably will not. It probably worked very well 3 years ago or until the Google Caffeine update. Since caffeine, poor quality pages just do not really cut it for competitive phrases like "treatment for acne". Getting a page with only 10 -20 unique articles that cost $3-$5 to write will not make you $20 per site these days. Things have changed and I imagine that is why he has released the course.

        The so called secret sauce in his system or "authority auto blogs" is really just your standard auto-blog. There is nothing "authority" about it so I take that it is just for marketing purposes to distinguish his auto blogs from others.

        Having hundreds or thousands of scraped articles and RSS feeded articles and videos onto a site does not mean that it automatically becomes an authority on the subject. This is simply because a site comprised of ten or so $5 articles written by a non native english speaker after 5 minutes of research will not create an credibility whatsoever for the page or site at large. CNN will never quote your site and wikipedia will unlikely ever reference you. In other words, your 10 page site will not become an authority even if it has 1000 RSS feeds building content automatically for that site.

        It is interesting to note that he dedicates a video to show you how to deal with sites that flop. I think in the current SEO climate, many sites will flop simply because the system taught is regressive and is based on what used to work. In my mind , a workable system should work nearly every time, juts like newton's laws. Putting 10 sites up and hoping for the best is not a system to me. For example, ALL of my traffic equalizer sites made a profit, All of my site-build-it sites made money, etc. On the other hand, very few of my xfactor sites made money and even fewer of my MSN loophole sites made anything.

        Hello, I find your review interesting. A lot of time went into it. I would only wonder if it would have a different ring had you tried the advanced portion. I do believe there are things in there that you do not have or have ever had in your toolbox.

        I myself used one of those tools in the early stages of development and did well. I did not have any cookie cutter sites, they were all my build. The method I used built my earnings up to a fair amount. I would have to say that the one traffic method I was using was an easy install, built my traffic up to levels I would have never thought of, and gave me a nice income.

        I am sorry you don't have a high regard for the program, I am trying some of the newer methods as a split test with one of my blogs that does not have the method used..I am seeing 5 times the traffic in a short time as opposed to the the one that does not employ the method.

        All I can say is "Oh Well"..it may not be for you, but there are folks who are doing a good job building their own networks. I have seen with my own eyes some of their earnings, it all starts slowly and builds over time...just like mine did.

        Have a good day

        Hi JK Nyerere,

        Thanks for your review but I am afraid there are a lot of misleading inaccuracies in here that I would like to address.

        First, without going into the details there are many factors that are designed to work WITH the recent Google Panda and it is the internal structure behind this that puts the Auto-content to work in a way that is not so much for traffic but for boosting authority content.

        I realize your review was meant to be sarcastic and a bit tongue in cheek, which is cool. That being said, I think you make some very misinformed judgements which I think are aimed at misleading readers.

        We have many students doing incredibly well with this course and some of them have even commented in this thread (thank you guys and gals)!

        I think you have missed the point but that is ok, I will be happy to help you get in the right direction if needed in PM.

        All the best

        Sean

          Hi Sean... It's actually a bit hard for me to believe that you're promoting such questionable webinars with promotion full of massive fake scarcity to your ENE members In *Insiders Only Bonus Invitation* style , as incredibly special invitation you've gone and done pay this super affiliate LOTS of $$$ to share his super secret system with your elite coaching members... LOL, how generous mate. I much prefer the high end clickbank push button blindsalesletter. At least they are entertaining and skillfully crafted.... Thank you for keeping me awake all night, stealing my attention.... What's really cool is that you've told this super affiliate that he MUST reveal EXACTLY how he goes and makes over $30,000 every month.

          And yes, you do mean *exactly*

          WITHOUT spending a dime on traffic, and in fact...
          WITHOUT even having to worry about traffic generation at all.

          I wish I'd been one of the lucky 15(00?) people that got xcloose membership to this super private COMMISSION SIPHON wealth club with simon and his grandma for only $997 through your affiliate link. Now look, maybe if someone drops off and get's a refund I can still hop on board... Oh right, wait! I forgot that there are no refunds... My bad

            I agree that Sean promotes some really horrible products to his mailing list, considering that the products that he actually creates are high quality training, way over delivered. I guess he needs to decide if this conflict hurts his reputation.

            Yet, the links in your file are for a Fast Free Cash, make hundreds to a $1,000/day ($30,000 month same as your reference above), even "Hands Free" ...sounds like the same "newbie trap" you slammed sean for...

              Haha... Easy Focused Action (Sick name btw, one can never have enuff of that). Yeah, Sean has got is reputation hurt big time with me. I'm glad your with me there. This was probably the worst experience I've had with beeing on someones list that I've done business with before. He talked about his investments to make this "possible" lol, this did cost not a single penny, but will earn some big commissions. Also the three E-Mails where misleading in terms of content for this webinar. But the fake scarcity for limited 15 people and no refund option?! Oh common man, that's a lot...

              In regards to my link mate. Please, there's no way you could compare that with what I described happened in my post above. If you sign up for the 9-Video-Course in my sig you will see that it is quality information infact. It can easily, if put into action actually, earn anyone willing to put in the neccessary work $100-200 a day and is a complete Step-by-Step Guide for FREE. No lies, no false promise. I earn this money using these method amongst others. Have a look for yourself, ain't cost you a thing to make your own mind up in 5 min. No trap at all... Free quality information, a free lifetime membership and a working evergreen method.

              Now I was on the other hand, over days repeatedly promised a webinar on some super secret idiot safe underground tactics that totally blew his mind so he payed this underground super affiliate lots of $$$ for to teach to his elite members, and that will earn anyone $1,000/day for free with free and instant monster traffic.

              What I've got for and staying up all night for this generous offer to teach me superninja tactics that will skyrocket my business... Was a boring, low quality 1 hour sales pitch on some over priced, usability limited, ultra scarcity fest. The websites look like put together by a 5 year old and the mindblowing traffic once and for all solution is blog commenting. Really? I was embarrassed afterwards, staying up till the sun comes up on a weekday for this.. Whatever it was. I fall for the pre-sale over 5 or so emails in 4 days or whatever. Most misleading offer I came across so far.

                CK Trust,

                I'm going to come right out and say, Whoa!!!

                I am part of Sean's inner circle. I have to tell you that the guy is amazing! . I have been with Sean for about a year now I have to tell you he has completely modified my business plans and I have made an awful lot of money using his tactics. He's been nothing but good, forward, and genuinely has an "I want to help the out attitude"

                So before you start dragging his name around or losing faith in him. Take a look at the whole picture.

                So let's talk about this last offer that came to the mail. It is believed that the link to the super long sales pitch was in error. Sean said so himself in the inner circle. He also admitted it was a painful sales pitch. He later stated that it with the software he was talking about and to forget the pitch.

                You also need to know that Sean had been on vacation and for the first time in 42 weeks he actually missed his weekly ask Sean session. That is 41 straight weeks of him giving up his time to show a group of people the inside track for some really cool marketing ideas. WOW
                I'm not talking about pre-recorded stuff, I'm talking live one hour webinars followed up sometimes by an hour and a half of question-and-answers

                This is been some amazing stuff!

                Okay, so back to the point. Do I think he was off his game a little with this offer. Sure, but the actual tool that's been sold is pretty darn good. I have to tell you I purchased WP Mage for $1000 over a year and a half ago. in my opinion WP Mage was ahead of its time. Subsequently, I'm sure I've made easily over $80,000 off of that tool. This new tool is an upgrade version of this. Sure it's simple but often times simple is the right answer. Sean also makes it very clear that every tool is not for everyone.

                So before you come back and trying dispute this post, or anything else like that. I highly recommend that you put this behind you and join the Inner Circle to get a good insight as to exactly who Sean Donahoe is. I am positive that your business will do better if you just do that.

                Good Luck to you!!

                Airborne!

                  Hi guys,

                  I wanted to put in my two cents here. I bought ENE when it came out. I must say that this course does cover everything you need to start earning money online. It also has plenty of stuff in it for more advanced marketers.

                  I must say that I wish everyone could get the advanced training without buying the ready made site. In fact, that would probably be my biggest complaint about ENE. I must say that I got the advanced training and there are lots of really good tips in there. A lot of them are also not going to be something everyone can implement until they start making money.

                  I saw some people making remarks about the autoblogging part of the course. All I can say is that if you don't like autoblogging, then don't turn on the autoblogging part. The autoblogging part is just used to provide a boost for your unique articles.

                  If you are worried about your Google account, then turn don't put Adsense on your auto content.

                  I also saw someone talking about crappy content. I am a bit stumped, because no where does Sean mention crappy content. He does say you can get articles for $5. But you always need to worry about the quality.

                  I know that I have had $5 articles written for me that were better than some of the $15 articles I have bought. I also know that I have paid $20 for articles that were obviously not researched and full of errors.

                  Of course the best approach is to start sites on topics you know something about and write the content yourself. Besides if you look at most of the successful sites, including Jim's site in this thread, they are all based on something the creator knows about. They all have new unique content added almost daily.

                  So, as with any site or program, you have to make sure you use good quality unique content. Then if you follow ENE, add some autoblog content for support.

                  Basically, here is how it is. ENE is a good program. It will take you step by step and show you exactly what you need to do to earn money. As with any program, try to find out how it works and apply that. If there is some part of the program that makes you uncomfortable, skip that part.

                  The ideas and strategies presented in ENE will work, but like everything else you have to take action.

                  On a side note, I am amazed at how many people claim something doesn't work after just a short time. Create a site, build backlinks everyday for 2 months, and then see where you are.

                  This course is not a magic button. You cannot create a site, turn on the autocontent, and then sit back and watch your adsense account climb. You have to build a site, back link that site, promote the site. And then you can watch the money start to come in.

                  Jon

                    Hey Guys

                    Listen a lot of you people are getting this autoblogging thing wrong. In ENE it's not meant to build authority sites it is use as a buffer to your main sites Sean knows just like we all know that Google slapped the hell out of those autoblog spammy sites if you guys would listen to what he's saying and stop trying to find every little thing wrong with it you would know that.

                    What autoblogging is good for is to give your sites a buffer, along with your Ezines articles, web2.0 properties, press releases and you tube videos etc, but the main thing that autoblogs are good for is data mining, gathering information and the content that you put on your money sites with the information you obtained will boost your sites considerably. This is what Sean is saying, so again these autoblogs are not used to make you a lot of money they are mainly use for gathering information!!

                  Easy bydomino,

                  Ok, first things first. Again, as a content member of ENE, I know that ENE is solid and I've ALWAYS stated that as a fact, even in my 2 posts about my dissapointment with the way that Sean's recent email promotion went down. Which I stand by, was just WRONG to me....

                  Let's put it straight here. I never dragged or will drag Seans name around. I've only stated my huge dissapointment with which was indeed the way he choose to promote his affiliate webinar for Commission Siphon to me as as loyal customer. And I still stand by this. I EVEN HAVE RECEIVED SERVAL E-MAILS from other warriors, saying thank you for my courage to come forward about this as they think the same way but couldn't or wouldn't post about it for some reasons.

                  Now, let me explain in short why I've been extremly frustrated... Reason is, I actually got that exact same expression about Sean Donahoe that you bring across in your post below. From all his opinions on the state of IM and his plans to deliver value and honesty again during the Pre-Launch of ENE, all the way to the advanced modules of ENE. I can truly say that I've learned a ton from Sean's teachings in this time and it's greatly appreciated, believe me. He came across to me like a trustworthy, knowlegable and very real marketer and I've only seen him deliver value and honesty to that point and I seen him as a man who I should listen to from now on, because he's just the way he promoted himself to me before. Only then to turn around trying to sell me this non-refundable, expensive, usability limited, scarcity massacre of a product with a story about paying someone huge amounts of dollars to teach his members this super underground ninja 1000 bucks a day method for free as a gift. I just don't care in any way if the software is anywhere near amazing or not. I stayed up all night on a week day, appreciative and totally assured to get the goods delivered again from his generous effort...
                  I was shocked when the pitchfest was over. Unfortunately, I've got NO kind of value out of this at all...

                  I also see it like it has definetely something to do with ENE as I sure see that he get's a lot of praise for this and his other work in this thread and he has earned that praise for sure. But then again, it's not all golden as it may seems and I tell it as I see it, that's just the way I am. I've recently seen an other famous marketer getting a lot of heat and hatred in his product threads on here for far less offensive marketing. If I had biten onto this "super exclusive" offer and later on realised what happend to me I would be very very upset.

                  As I read somewhere in this thread, Sean didn't intend to promote this way and it happened because he was away during this campain and there was an automatition screw up. If that's the case it would be good.

                  Again ENE is a great product, Sean is a good teacher with great knowledge. I wish him only the very best in all honesty....

                  But nobody is perfect and maybe he learned something. I wouldn't risk this kind of positve reputation for a quick buck promotion. I'm not some sheep that only praises along, chiming into the crowd. I always give lot's of praise where i see it due and I enjoy to do this... But I will also call out negative behavior when I see the possibilty of a benefit if called out.

                  To Your, Sean's, ENE's and all it's members success!

                  Chris

                  So before you start dragging his name around or losing faith in him. Take a look at the whole picture.

                  So let's talk about this last offer that came to the mail. It is believed that the link to the super long sales pitch was in error. Sean said so himself in the inner circle. He also admitted it was a painful sales pitch. He later stated that it with the software he was talking about and to forget the pitch.

                  You also need to know that Sean had been on vacation and for the first time in 42 weeks he actually missed his weekly ask Sean session. That is 41 straight weeks of him giving up his time to show a group of people the inside track for some really cool marketing ideas. WOW
                  I'm not talking about pre-recorded stuff, I'm talking live one hour webinars followed up sometimes by an hour and a half of question-and-answers

                  This is been some amazing stuff!

                  Okay, so back to the point. Do I think he was off his game a little with this offer. Sure, but the actual tool that's been sold is pretty darn good. I have to tell you I purchased WP Mage for $1000 over a year and a half ago. in my opinion WP Mage was ahead of its time. Subsequently, I'm sure I've made easily over $80,000 off of that tool. This new tool is an upgrade version of this. Sure it's simple but often times simple is the right answer. Sean also makes it very clear that every tool is not for everyone.

                  So before you come back and trying dispute this post, or anything else like that. I highly recommend that you put this behind you and join the Inner Circle to get a good insight as to exactly who Sean Donahoe is. I am positive that your business will do better if you just do that.

                  Good Luck to you!!

                  Airborne!

                    Again Sean, Commission Siphon and Auto Wealth Maker are essentially the same product. Refer to Amuro Wesleys video illustrating this in detail. If it's not from the same "group" under another pen name - CS looks like a resell license with a fresh coat of SPIN to hook people for another "non-refundable" $950.

                    This is about TRUST - and my question is simple. Why should ENE customers spend another $950 for CS when AWM sells for $47 under CB's buyer protection?

                    This is the 2nd time I asked this question. Refusing to answer is an answer.

    Thanks for this review Chad. Decided after sleeping on it that I would drop everything else I've tried and give ENE a serious shot. Hopefully Seans ENE will make the same difference for me as it did for Jim's traffic (in the sales video) :-)

    Much appreciated.

    Hi there,

    Let me jump in here a minute to explain something about what we do here

    First, not every product is going to suite everyone. That is obvious and some people are at different levels of marketing. It seems you are a ENE customer and that is cool. IF you were an Inner Circle customer as well this may make more sense.... but read between the lines!

    One thing I always stress is look past the hype and the dollar signs and then look at the real story or strategy behind that. There is a lot of overhyped, over pitched stuff out there and this is not an attempt to "Defend my actions" but a perspective.

    Think about one of the things I ALWAYS stress, "Scale + Automation" and the software in this webinar is very powerful and when combined with a lot of the techniques and tools I show you it is amazing.

    Remember, think outside of the box and look at things from a big picture perspective. If it is not for you, then it is not for you... cool, then walk on by. Maybe you do not want the product, then hopefully you learn another small nugget of info from the webinar, if not... cool, then walk on by.

    Everyone has a different level, expectation and perspective. I respect that and hope you now understand a little better where I am coming from

    All the best

    Sean

    I'm curious Sean: What would you say is correct KW density? The plugin I use tells me that around 3+ percent is right on and that 1-2 is too low. Curious as to what you think the golden number is I should shoot for. Or is it more a case of "if it looks good to you..."?

      does it involve writing your content/article,how much writing is needed?
      can the strategies be good for every topic and niche?
      do we need any special software to implement this course?
      is it involve with ranking your sites to google first page in order to see some money? how long it takes to rank your site with these strategies?
      thanks

          Sean - I'm an ENE customer and was profoundly disappointed that you promoted Commission Siphon. Here's what you need to explain … CS and Auto Wealth Maker are about the same products. CS sells for $997 and AWM is $47. Another warrior, Amuro Wesley produced a video illustrating this in detail. So what benefit does CS have for an additional $950?

          Furthermore, CS is being sold on many lists - with the same scarcity lies on every webinar. Your response to this has been nothing but SPIN. But regardless, how can you pitch any $997 product that doesn't offer refunds?

            I attend several webinars and since my time is limited I use the Warrior Forum to learn about these products (if possible).

            After I signed up for the CS webinar, I listened to the subsequent sales video.

            I am leery when people mention that you can make a lot of money by making a few clicks on your mouse. I saw the name of the product, searched for it on the Warrior Forum, and read a review.

            The review mentioned the $997 product and so on. I decided that this product was not for me.

            Thus, I did not attend the webinar saving me time during this process.

            Now I do purchase products from webinars but only if I believe the products can help me with my current or future endeavors.

          Chad
          I have checked out your forum.

          There are Newbie success stories in the ENE forum i.e Wow! I made $10 last month etc.

          But $10 or $100 a month is a loooooong way from six figures. I understand though that $10 a month might be $100,000 a month with scale.

          But what you and Sean seem to miss is that no amount of scaling with poor content is going to get you anywhere these days in Google.

          Even the guy with the cowboy accent in your promo video who made six figures in 6 months also experienced a huge drop in traffic after the recent update.

          This is a warning to me that the ENE system is not favored by Google and such sites will continue to be penalized in future updates.

          As I said in my earlier post, newbies will be happy with almost anything as they can't distinguish between good and bad.

              It's been a long time since I've encountered somebody as negative as this. I'm not quite sure where your frustrations come from. I read your thread on Bring the Fresh, and Extreme Niche Empires...and I quote:

              "It will change your life. Sean Donahoe is one of the, in his field, most knowledgable and skilled experts I've yet to come across... He get's STRAIGHT to the point and into the matter of his business, no fluff but detailed, hardcore value. Leaving no stone unturned as he likes to call it. "

              Source:
              http://www.warriorforum.com/internet...e-empires.html

              That was written by you on the 21st? So what happened that changed your mind? I'm highly confused. Is this because Sean Donahoe sent an email promoting another offer? Well I'm not the least surprised. I get offers all the time from the biggest names in the business. Some are good, others are not. I almost always get something out of it.

              However, how does that devalue Extreme Niche Empires. That is what this thread is about? I probably get 20 emails a day from members in ENE. There not always asking for help, a lot of them are thankful, and excited and finally have a chance to succeed. Then there are those that are really sailing off to the sunset, just yesterday I spoke to an individual that is making $200 a day from adsense, and another $100 from ClickBank.

              I am thinking you may not be familiar with the rules of this forum.. So let me remind you:

              3. Do not attack nor give your opinion about the product creator. This forum is about product reviews, not the people who create the products.

              4. In general, just use common sense and don't come in here just to bash products created by people you may not like. Again, we are looking for intelligent reviews so people can be helped in making a decision one way or the other.

              As far as what I miss regarding poor content? Well this is not a fair statement either. I myself do not use autocontent. Very poor assumption. It doesn't make it right or wrong. My reason is I like to have control with what I am publishing, and with autoblogs you loose that control. I can do just fine with original content and highly optimized keywords. Providing I have set up every aspect of ENE. Which I have done exactly as stated above. I just ask that you would think about what your saying first.

              I really hope that you adhere to the policies in this forum and keep your responses geared towards the product and not it's creator. That's why people search this thread to start with.

              Looking at your comments and your kind words a few days ago, surely you have something of value to add to this thread?


              Kindest Regards,
              Chad E. Nicely
              mmmmm... I never made that quote. Maybe you are referring to somebody else.

              I also have only discussed the product, not the creator.

              Perhaps you are confusing me with CK Trust.

              I am impressed that the product was released last month and somebody is already making $200 per day. I will love to hear her chime in on this forum or the ENE forum.
              Considering there over 2000 members on the ENE forum currently, I expect there should be hundreds of "individuals" calling you in the next few months to thank you for their forthcoming $300 per day success.

              My review was honest and I actually recommend the product. I just do not believe it will work in 2011 based on my other sites built in a similar way. Thats all. This is a review section not a product endorsement section.

                JK, Yes you are correct. I stand corrected on that quote. My bad, you have my apology.

                CK made that statement. So I guess I guess I'll ask CK why he makes such a bold positive statement, and then goes on a witch hunt a few days later. What exactly happened in 5 days to make somebody make those kind of harsh remarks. Has to be more than just a marketers email. When I get email, I'm not interested in I just delete it. Happens every day. There is gold and then there is crap. Just nature of the business.


                JK, I was being honest with you when I stated there are members successful in the course. However there are members, that are just not going to succeed either. You and I both know that. It's takes action and dedication to make this happen. It's been my experience people get distracted with the next best thing.

                I respect your review, and again apologize for confusing you. Since you are in the forum. I take it you are an ENE member yourself? Have you not experienced any positive gains?

                Best Wishes

                  I don't doubt for a second that Sean is a good honest internet marketer. Having said all this no one can deny that the sales spill he promoted on Commission Siphon was a load of bull. When promoting products such as these to his loyal followers he has an obligation to at least do his research first rather than claiming this and claiming that. As far as i am concerned his total lack of respect and false claims he has shown to his followers is gross misconduct on his part, and his internet marketing career may well take a direct hit..

                  Yes i did buy commission Siphon, Thankfully i received a refund through paypal in the end...

                  Yes i have Private messaged Sean with evidence of other disgruntled users all across the world of im. Also i am hoping his reply this time is gonna prove he realises how serious all of this is for his name to stay in good stead....

    To some, that first $10 a month may as well be $10,000. ABB is another one. Both work so long as you focus on adding authority content and not spamming your blog to death, which is something Sean goes over. That's the key. All I know is, regardless of the fact that some things Sean may promote aren't for me (how the heck did we get to ripping on his reputation anyway?) I've found his products to be useful, clear of fluff, make me money AND the gent himself to be very helpful when he does not have to be.

    Dude, its NOT the program but what you do with it and what twists you use, that make the impact. Everybody always asks "will this make money?" WRONG QUESTION. A better one will be "will I follow through with the program, and tweak it to my own work?" Obviously programs like Extreme Niche Empires and Auto Blog Blueprint (now at ver. 3) do help people make money but its all....wait for it....how they use the knowledge they gain. And owning both programs I can tell you that they both have good points.

    I have Extreme Niche Empires and have followed Sean off and on for a about 2 years and very closely for about 6 months now.

    So I am kinda biased here.

    Anyway Extreme Niche Empires to me is a whole lotta stuff put together. There is an earlier course called firestorm SEO where Sean taught how to get pages ranked well using internal and external SEO but this course dives deeper into a lot of other stuff as well.

    There are a few really critical parts of the IM puzzle that Extreme Niche Empires deals with and helps us with especially for such a cheap price.

    1. A focused plan - Nothing is better than a plan that works. Often we are looking for ways to gain an upper hand by automating or looking for a quick fix and in this course there is a good plan with all the quick fixes. Hosting, site building, content, SEO, and monetization are all covered in depth. You may think that you have a better way but just by following this plan it will work for you, then you can tweak and mod.

    2. Sharing info - I share what I can on Warrior forum but since it is very public I could never talk about things like adsense CPC or adsense income without losing adsense as an income source. In a private forum you can share what works and what does not work and I have found the people to be really open and sharing. I am not scared to show people in a private group my money site but just ry giving out a great underused keyword here, it will be spammed in an hour.

    3. Income potential - I have personally gained lots of traffic and at least doubled my income over just the last couple of months and this was through hints and tips that Sean has given to the group. I know lots of people making no money, some money and even lots of money and the thing is all the people sharing feel like they have a vested interest in your success and will help and celebrate anyway they (we) can.

    As far as this business about autoblogging, I know that it is something everyone is sensitive about. I have tried it and got some good and bad results, pulled it, added it. And Sean has even included a plugin that will help for this if you are interested. I know that my main money site has not autoblogged content and that is becasue as the winds of SEO change I don't want to get nailed in the next Google Panda. Tiger, or Muskrat update so I make sure that I vary the quality but never put in too much stuff that is not mine alone.

    I told you that I am a fan, you can see that from my comment here but also Chad is someone that I have spoken to and we have helped each other out in Seans Inner Circle Skype room (that is another post altogether). Chad put this post up as a review but i have to say that he has been a great help to me in my business. I will don't know if he is making 5,000 a month or 50,000 a month but he will always share and is helping people with sites everywhere in there. So please respect Chad he is a really good guy.

    I usually run like the blazes from negativity but every now and then an injustice will make me stand and fight. I have rarely been so "put out" by some of the stuff I have read in here today. Why has it got to me?

    Probably because for the first time in 5 years I finally found the person to help me start earning an income off the internet. It may not yet put me into the earnings-stratosphere but every rocket from earth has to leave from ground level~ And IM may not be "rocket science" but it does have to start from a foundation. The stronger and more comprehensive that foundation of learning and understanding means we can build bigger and better internet businesses and THAT is the starting point with ENE.

    Once the basics are in place then the real building begins. That is why the extra modules are called "advanced" and have to be worked up to. I don't know anyone who started school in high school first...do you?

    Another thing...sometimes loyalty to a friend can land you in hot water. People always do things for a reason and the rest of us don't need to know what that reason is but with everything, there is always something to be learned if you keep an open mind and listen. I admire, trust and respect loyalty and find it a personal characteristic that is uncommon today. As has been witnessed here it seems easier to try to 'bring someone down' rather than build everyone up.

    A good teacher always imbibes their students with knowledge and confidence and Sean gives me that in spades. BTW, I have a recent ENE site for a very competitive keyword and today it is on the first page of Google. For anyone who really wants to learn IM, then go with someone who will actually TEACH you IM rather than selling you a product and then leaving you to try to figure out how it is supposed to work.

    I highly and unconditionally recommend Extreme Niche Empires to anyone who wants and is prepared to learn and work; who understand that "from little things, big things grow" and frankly, mine are doing well, thank you very much!

    Since when do ENE members HAVE to buy anything? Good LORD, this is a review thread for ENE, not for what Sean may or may not promote. And anyway can't you make up your own mind? Sean's reputation lies in his products and his stellar help. Enough already!

    Apparently you haven't figured out the relationship between trusting information in someone's product and what they are trying to sell you. Following your rationale, all recommended resources for ENE buyers have nothing to do with the course. But here's what Sean said about Commission Siphon:

    "Just check it out and you will see how powerful this can be and especially if you are an Extreme Niche Empires customer as well!"

    He is using that trust and reputation you noted to push a $1000 product on his ENE customers. Get it? And some people who bought ENE, including me, want to know why - when they can buy the same thing for $47. Maybe he didn't know about AWM or got conned. Perhaps there is a reasonable explanation. But that's for him to answer, not you.

    Point is, you don't have to buy it and again this thread is for reviews about Extreme Niche Empires, not Sean or what he may choose to promote. You don't NEED anything that is recommended outside of the basic ENE course anyway, including Heatmap pro, WP Robot or anything else. Its there for you when and if you decide to use it. *shrugs* I already own WP Robot and will be getting the pro version of Heatmap. As far as that other stuff goes, meh couldn't care less.

    And having actually chatted with Sean on Skype, I don't see what he may recommend as a problem and certainly don't think him bad for doing so. He's in business and part of this is affiliate marketing. I could recommend what I believe to be a solid product and still have people grumbling that it didn't work for them. Just take a look at any product reviewed here and you'll see that. Point is, let's leave this thread to be a review of ENE and not Sean Donahoe the marketer. He's not a con artist, not a scammer and is one of the most genuine people I've met.

      YES, without a doubt. Sean teaches numerous ways in which to make money from a well-optimized, well-laid out site. With the ENE system it also works well with CPA offers. If you don't like Adsense, then there is always clickbank, yahoo publishers, Amazon, CJ... or any other system or combination that you would care to use. Adsense is only a small part of what Sean teaches. It is never advisable to depend only on one way in which to monetize a website (as I'm sure you probably already know)

        I bought this course and the two upsells and all I want to say is "Thank you Sean". I have bought other courses but non has delivered so much so fast. The techniques are sound and do bring results. I have started getting adsense and amazon income where before I had close to non for all my efforts. My traffic has rocketed and I am now ranking on page 1 of google for several long tail keywords. The course is very well presented and the forum is full of information and people ready to help you out. If you are new to the game or have not had any success then this is the course for you.

              You will need to buy domain names and hosting but no, you won't need to buy anything more to use this basic product. Sean does teach us about tools that are already on the market that will help you to scale and automate to increase productivity but you can make money from the basic product. If and how you decide to scale and automate your business is your choice.

                Are most of you buying 1 or 2 domains to start your niches and have them making $ 20-$30/day before adding more sites? It seems you could be shelling out a fair bit of money all at once on domain names and on hosting domains on separate hosting accounts.

                  If your sites makes $20 a day, that is $7,200.

                  Your hosting and domain for a year will cost you less than $150; and that is on the high end.

                  So the risk:reward is really in your favor... assuming you make $20 a day or there abouts.

                      Veeco, I will let you know if I run into any problems with Google Adsense. My first 20 niche sites are scheduled for completion by the end of July; it depends on how hectic my day job gets.

                      I will not feature any AdSense ads on my automatically created content. I will only feature AdSense ads for my authority unique content. Each niche site will start out with 19 500+ unique articles.

                      I am doing this because the WordPress plug-in I am using would not pull in automatically created content with my bad keyword exclude list. Thus, I had to remove these bad words for the plug-in to work correctly. So just in case some auto content is published to my niche sites with bad words (I originally wanted to exclude), I removed AdSense ads from them.

                      My sites will be monetized via AdSense, ClickBank, Commission Junction, Amazon.com, and other affiliate products. My sites also contain squeeze pages for list building purposes. Once my lists grow to a respectable size, I will also promote offers (my own and affiliates) including continuity memberships to my subscribers.

                      Once my sites start generating a substantial amount of traffic, I will also monetize them with CPA offers.

                      Thus, if for some reason I get banned from AdSense, I will just replace these ads with ads from other sources; since I will only optimize the on-page and off-page SEO for my unique content and want to keep taking advantage of all the traffic these sites will generate.

                  Andy I started by buying 20 domains. These sites are scheduled for completion by the end of July (depends on my hectic day job).

                  I chose this method since each domain will contain 19 articles (I outsourced 18 articles per site but am personally writing the home page article for each site) optimized for one keyword each.

                  Thus, I will have 380 keywords I will try to eventually get on the first page of Google. Likewise, if my sites can average at least 440 visits each on a daily basis, I could earn $12K+ from Google AdSense alone per month (according to my calculations).

                  If I only had two sites, these earnings would be around $1200+ a month.

                    I think your earnings stats are a bit optimistic.

                    You need to remember that you get a bit over half of the cost of the click an adwords buyer pays and that adwords buyers pay less for non-Google search options.

                    Expect 5% - 20 % clik-throughs and earnings of $0.20-$1 per click. You will get $2 or $3 clicks, but not too often so don't expect them. Those $10 clicks you hear about are very rare for adsense and do not expect them for your 19 article Philippine outsourced site.

                    I am not being mean, just telling you the truth.

                      My earnings calculation fits within your specifications.

                      Remember, I have 20 sites (19 articles * 20 sites = 380 articles) instead of 1 (19 articles) and my outsourced articles will be revised and SEO optimized before I publish them.

                      The average approximate CPC for my keywords is $5.13 and the lowest is $2.01.

                      For example, let's assume 5% click-through and $1 per click.

                      (440 daily visits*365 days*20 sites*5%*$1)/12= $13,383 a month

                        Most average CPC figures like the ones on the GG kw tool are based on ads appearing on the Google search engine itself and some top partners, not us guys with 20 page acne sites.

                        I have owned hundreds of sites over the years with some with hundreds of pages in high paying niches. My experiencing is telling me your figures are very optimistic. I could be wrong as i do not know your sites and I do not own google. So good luck!

    I bought this five days ago. The charge came out of my paypal account and I received an email that sent me to a confirmation/login page that was "not found". Tried to write to Sean -- no answer -- finally got an invitation to log a support ticket, which I did but received no confirmation the ticket had been logged or received.

    Not a word since. It's going to cost me more than 47 dollars in aggravation to get my money back.

      Hey there,

      You should have got instant access through Clickbank but if not make sure you put your transaction ID in your ticket to our support center and they will hook you up. Our support center is open Mon-Fri 9am-5pm so our team will be there to help you Monday morning.

      If you are not sure if your ticket has that info, just login to the support center and edit your ticket and you will be fine

      All the best

        The Basic training is top notch even the upgrade is good just be careful with some of the plug ins that come with the upgrade they don't work as advertised. If you do get the upgrade remember the 30day money back guarantee I was a day late and about $300 short. There are even members in his Private Forum who is promoting their services because the lack of anyone from Support who will frequent the Forum.

      A quick review from an 'outsider'...

      I purchased ENE as a means of investigating my client base and to see the type of work they're involved with. I analysed reports on the product through various resources (including the WF) and decided to purchase on the basis of Sean's solid reputation in the industry, a competitive price and strong recommendations from reputable resources.

      I'm now up to module 9 (I'm doing this bit-by-bit alongside my usual work) and so far, I'm more than happy with the purchase. The product isn't exactly easy for a complete novice, but it can be followed as long as the videos are played back several times and notes are taken.

      There's plenty of work involved, and Sean makes no secret of this. A little extra money is required to purchase domains, hosting and a few services that help to alleviate the pain of opening multiple accounts. So far, I've spent a further $45 or so. I'm quite happy with the extra investment as long as it yields results at a later stage.

      The forum has grown into an extensive resource that addresses most difficulties, and is much quicker for resolving problems than the support section. That's a huge plus if you don't want to wait 48 hours to solve technical issues. Software problems have largely been sorted and patches are available for those who experience glitches. I have to admit that I've encountered very few of these problems, and have been able to resolve them with ease.

      Regarding the software Sean provides for site building, I only have one complaint. The downloadable theme is a tad dull but the plug-ins included within the site more than compensate for what's essentially my own self-indulgent nit-picking. As one gains experience, I'm guessing that better themes could be introduced. It's a very, very small complaint.

      In terms of time, the first website is likely to take up to a fortnight to create (this includes waiting times for multiple registrations on Ping FM and the like) but one that site is created, others can be cloned quite easily.

      Will the websites make money? If you follow to the letter, I'm fairly certain they will (although I'm not at this stage yet). These sites should make a few dollars a day and cover their hosting costs comfortably. Replication is obviously the key, and building up to 100 or more websites will take a long, long time. It's probably worth taking a kicking on outsourcing costs if you want faster results.

      I'm still only two-thirds of the way through, but I'm confident my first site will profit. If it doesn't, I've still gained what I wanted from the product and I'll have a base website that can be tweaked until it does make money.

      Sean is regularly available to help solve issues personally which is a huge plus, and the videos are enthusiastically presented with very little BS, plenty of honesty (no crazy promises of overnight wealth) and complete clarity. Admittedly, Sean does bumble along at times as he's doing the training 'on the hop', but this does serve to add character and a human feel to events. Never work with dogs, children or computers!

      ENE is an ethical and honest product with genuine value and that's the biggest selling point from my perspective. I'm sure you could research most of this stuff yourself (I knew a fair bit already through my own work anyway) but ENE provides that information from a singe resource and save hours of web trawling.

      One thing I'd like to see added - I've made mountains of notes which I'm slowly but surely condensing into a single document for when I make my next site. ENE needs to provide one of these as a time-saver with the course itself. An abbreviated .pdf document would be ideal.

        I bought the package in May, finally got around to doing something with it in June and, I believe, it was worth the money I spent. Not because it's making me a million bucks or ever will but what I've learned through following the videos has been invaluable.

        That's the big plus, the big minus is the plugins that fail, don't work properly or which totally stuff up your installation and the totally inadequate (non-existent is a term that comes to mind) support. How Rigmonkey can say: Sean is regularly available to help solve issues personally which is a huge plus,is beyond me as Sean hasn't been on the ENE forum since the beginning of June and only made 54 posts during his occasional visits since March.The only time moderators are seen on the forum is just before a new product launchand if it wasn't for a half a dozen individual forum members providing advice and assistance the refund request rate would be going through the roof.

        If you're a newbie and are considering whether to buy the course or not I would recommend that you do because you simply won't get this amount of good quality training anywhere else for the price. However, don't expect to be buying your first Lamborghini from the ENE sites you build and whatever you do, read the posts in the forum first and save yourself a whole stack of grief because that's where you'll find the fixes to the problems you will encounter. There are some strategies that may interest experienced IMers but I don't think they would gain as much. But their help would be very welcome on the forum

          I bought ENE a few weeks ago. It is the best $37 product I have bought in several years. I have set up three sites with the concept. It is not a simple process to set up but the videos are very good. I have taken extensive notes to make it easier to create new ENE sites. There are some glitches with the auto content software but the ENE forum is very helpful in resolving those issues. Some of the auto pilot social media and RSS software Sean incorporates and recommends do not work as advertised. However he has no control over those products.

          As far as the prospects for success by using the concepts, the results have been mixed. A few members have made some Adsense income. Most are yet to see any significant results including myself. I am hopeful the concept works with more time. Some members have had problems with Google due to the software pulling up x rated content. Some also have lost Google rankings but it turns out they relied on the auto content and did not have original content as the ENE concept requires.

          The ENE forum is very helpful although the key contributors are not a part of the inner circle. There is a conspicious absense of Sean and the moderators in the forum for some reason that puzzles many of the members. Sean made an appearance in the forum this week for the first time since June 2. Of course he got a cold reception from the members. The next day the forum is down with the message " down for maintenance of databases". What a coincidence, I wonder if it will ever return.

            Chuck, hang in there. You are right that this course is very good.

            I believe it will take some time for newbies to make money in the short-term with Sean's system.

            However, over the long-term, I believe newbies can make decent to great passive income consistently on a monthly basis.

            As an individual new to Internet Marketing, I quickly realized to make money in this business using this particular system... I need to predominantly focus on three things: 1. Traffic 2. Conversions 3. Payout per action (sales, click, etcetera)

            I can control Payout per action (for the most part) and improve conversions via split testing and so on.

            However, generating traffic via the search engines is probably where the wheels fall off for many.

            As a result, I have spent most of the past three months learning SEO and developing my SEO strategy.

            This training also includes learning how to use various automated software programs to execute this strategy via automation of manual tasks that will take me forever to rank 1000+ (primary and secondary keywords) on the first page of Google for 20+ websites.

            I should wrap up this training by September 19th and will spend the remaining 7 weeks completing my first batch 20 sites (3 sites a week) and getting my SEO properties and accounts aged and properly setup for an improved stick rate.

            Afterward, I will run extensive SEO campaigns for these sites on a weekly basis moving forward; monitor my progress; make adjustments; and fine-tune my SEO strategy.

            I will give myself 6 months or to the end of April 2012 to start making a decent monthly passive income from these sites.

            The beauty of this SEO training is once I master it and stay up to date with it, I can build out ClickBank, MRR/PLR, Amazon.com, other physical product theme sites, and more ENE sites.

            I can accomplish this by determining how much money I would like to earn each month from each site (ideally $1K-$3K+).

            Afterwards, determine my average payout per action (sale or click), conservative conversion rate, and the amount of traffic I need to generate to meet my monthly income targets.

            Based on the amount of traffic I need to generate, I will determine the amount of low competition, decent traffic keywords I need to focus on and the number of articles each site needs optimized for each of these keywords.

            I know this approach may not be ideal for several newbies who are interested in generating decent to great income quickly. However, this approach is ideal for me.

            Finally, by learning these tasks, I can outsource them (once my sites start to generate substantial income and profit) to free up my time to focus on more core-activities for growing my online business.

            Learning how to perform what I plan to outsource is extremely important since I will be able to gauge the performance of my workers.

            The reason why my ENE strategy changed is that I spent $1287 in mid May for 4 full-time VAs and 1 part-time VA to write 360 100% unique 500 word articles in 30 days.

            To make a long story short, I have only received about ~170-180 of these articles and a handful of subsequent deadlines/extensions have been missed repeatedly.

            Since I am familiar with writing decent to good articles, the first 59 articles I received were subpar.

            Thus, I shared this feedback and a sample article (I personally wrote) with the company in June and they agreed to rewrite them.

            So I hope to receive the rest of the articles by September 19th.

            If they are subpar, I will have to fork over another $1200+ to have them rewritten by a different and hopefully reliable outsourcing company within 30 days.

            This time, I will arrange for an initial small payment to be made and the rest of the payments paid out on a weekly basis once I review and determine the articles are acceptable.

            I will also make sure measures are in place (such as an additional bonus payout) for the outsourcing company to complete these articles on time.

            However, I transformed this outsourcing problem into opportunity by learning SEO. So this outsourcing predicament may be a blessing in disguise since I have learned several tweaks I will utilize with the ENE system once I build out my sites.

            Outsourcing is a different beast I will focus on or master to a certain extent next year; since, it will be important for my online business moving forward.

            Unfortunately, the current loss of the forum devalues the course a little because by and large, it's the only help that's been available for some time and the membership is understandably peeved about it.

            I'm hoping the database issues are genuine because the activity on the forum would have inspired me to purchase future products from Sean. If the ENE team have reached a stage where product support has become unsustainable, some communication would be appreciated. Even without support, we still had the forum to fall back on and as a website newbie, this particular forum was an absolute goldmine.

            This is only my view on one small aspect of an otherwise excellent product and I'd still consider any future launches Sean is involved in.

    I do hope the database issues are genuine also. However I am suspicious by the timing of the issue. The response of the forum to resolve issues has been outstanding. I am going to try out the support team with my next issues. I do believe forums on the product site should be part of the support team. Their absense in the forum does not indicate this to be the case.

    All of his product forums should be consolidated in one place if that is what it takes to properly moderate and support the members issues.

    Kenrick C you appear to be unbeleiveably committed to this project without first seeing any success from it. I am not prepared to go all in yet until I see some indications it willl work and we will get answers to our issues.

    Hey there,

    I just wanted to jump in to answer the questions about the forum. We started having a lot of issues with the database and some abuses of the forums which were causing a lot of support headaches. The other aspect was that the forums were causing people to think we were not supporting the product.

    The issue is that the we have a dedicated support team ready to assist with any of the issues faced but the forums often buried the problems and if the support staff were not responding in time people were getting frustrated.

    While the forum was a great idea upfront for the product it just became unmanageable for us.

    So if you do have any problems or questions please feel free to contact our support team and we will get you sorted out in no time

    All the best

      I think I've earned the right to reply to this. I was the top poster in the ENE forums, having 3.5 months of experience and just under 700 posts during my time there.

      I bought ENE on May 18, 2011, and was pretty impressed with the product. I was/am new to IM, having only been in it since Christmas 2010, so I don't have a lot of experience and what Sean had to show gave me a fairly simple route to making money online, which made me happy.

      I started having a problem or two, so I checked out the forums to get answers, and I quickly found a nifty little community there that I became a part of. After a week or two, it became apparent that I had a lot more experience than most of the people posting, so I began chipping in with my advice and helping people, and I was joined by several other members.

      As we posted more, Sean and his moderators suddenly became quiet.

      Since the end of May until he took down the forums at the end of August, Sean Donahoe made two posts. Repeated emails to the support services were ignored. His auto-blogging plugins that are the core of ENE quit working in the beginning of June because they were violating the TOS of the two article sites they were pulling from.

      Several of us developed work-arounds for his programs due to the lack of response from Donahoe or his moderators. Jorgen Jensen's Content Puller (see my signature for details) was actually a much better alternative to the IMSC Blog Feeder than Donahoe supplied with his course. The forums became full of strategies and tips for how to deal with various issues that come with any attempt to make money online, not just problems with ENE. (I say that because no matter what strategy you choose, you're going to hit problems on occasion. We just came together as a group with ENE and worked around them so that we could continue to make money.)

      After 3 months of no input from the creator of Extreme Niche Empires, Sean finally showed back up in the forums and made a post attempting to defend himself and his moderators. A few days later the forum had an inexplicable problem and Sean took it down along with the 5,000 - 10,000 posts that we'd made and all of the knowledge that we had accumulated there. He blamed it on database issues, but we all know he took it down because he'd let the product go and lost control of it. Luckily I had already teamed up with another ENE user and created another forum that the ENE members have been slowly migrating to for more support since there is NO way to get it from ENE now.

      I never once recommended someone to not buy ENE while the forum's were up because I believed it was a solid product. Now that I see the way its creator operates, I'll be sure to tell everyone NOT to purchase it.

        Totally agree, the forumn was more valuable than the course. Most of the info in the course is no longer relevant and the plugin needed did not work at all. When it was obvious that the Panda changes affected this strategy there should have been an update, now it needs to be pulled from sale.
        Everything presented from keyword research to the amount of auto posts and some of the plugins recommended are no longer effective.
        Very disappointed in Sean and will no longer buy from him.

    Like Chuck, I find the timing of the forum crash suspicious, it ran fine, unattended for months and then suddenly a moderator shows up closely followed by Donahoe and then the forum crashes - but then again I'm a cynical B!@#$%^d. For those looking for some support, two of the forum members have set up another forum not specifically directed at ENE but a number of members from the old ENE forum are there.

        I really learned a lot from ENE but I think it can use some improvements.

        1. Most of the .pdf's don't open, there is a recurring error in many of the training modules (I really don't mind this much because the videos are very detailed but it'd be nice for reference)

        2. I'm not a big fan of the blog feeder. It does increase traffic to your website but it's usually not targeted (often way off base) and some of my rankings have really plummeted. Plus it doesn't help when the blog feeder pulls a Yahoo Answers question about women's menstrual cycles and all of the sudden it shows up in the sidebar widget for popular posts when your site has nothing to do with anything health or female anatomy. I mean seriously, the keyword I entered was "guitar" and it's posting s*** about teenagers breaking up and which tampon is best WTF?

        I don't know if WPRobot does this but I'm not making this up, I swear.

        BEFORE ANYONE COMMENTS... I DID SET IT UP CORRECTLY

        Sean has said that it's not perfect.

        3. He recommends putting up way too many ads. The Clickbank code is nice but although he says it looks like content links.... it doesn't it looks like adsense.

        4. This is in relation to No. 3.
        If you build websites this way navigation is a pain in the ass. You actually have to search for the content. To me this says spam. He has an Amazon Carousel at the bottom of each post! Now when you have 60 Youtube videos on 1 page and 60 carousels, that is crazy. I'm sure you can go in and remove the widget from each individual page but it's a pain in the ass just like removing the unrelated content that gets autoposted.

        Now that we got all of that out of the way. You will learn a ton from the course just be ready to test and tweak.

          Thanks Duudadz, the new forum link works.

          I can not vouch for the support staff yet as I have not used it. However it can not completely replace the forum. The forum was useful in getting an idea of what was working and what was not working. Other people's experiences, answered many of my questions. Fortunately many of the members have moved over to the new forum.

          I really do not think excellent support staffs can replace forums. When I get an email about a new IM product, I Google the product name Warrior Forum for unbiased knowledge about the product. While it is true many of the posts are from affiliates, occasionally there are some gems from purchasers of exactly what the product is all about and if it is worth purchasing.

          MODERATOR

          If you EVER see a post with an affiliate link in it here, PM me or send in a support ticket. People try to " game" this forum every single day but we usually stay on top of it.

          Shemp Hain
          1) I have not had any problems with the PDFs, it could be your computer

          2)I have set up the blog feeder on 3 niche sites. Only one of them is pulling properly in the acne niche. The content it is pulling is not good. I could only get one word keyword phrases to work. The videos were mainly other affiliates promoting their products and drag queens applying make up. The questions were worse with teenagers sob stories about their love life. The products feed worked fine, but is only good for Amazon products paying 4-8% commission. I found it best to pull the content as drafts so you can cull out the trash before it is posted. I know that means this process will not be automated.

          3)Sean shows several different options for monetizing your page. That does no mean you need to use them all on each site. I think it is better to replace the Amazon widgets paying 4% commission with affiliate networks and CPAs paying 30-50% commission.

          4)The Heatmap options has a box for turning off the widgets in the archive pages which eliminate this problem. Plus I am including a single product image or widget with each post instead.

      Some members have made some income from it. If there were any making astounding profits they were laying low and not posting on the forum. It is unfortunate the product came out about the same time as the Panda updates.

      The course covers a lot of techniques. There was a lot of feedback on the forum of how to get around technical problems and what was working and what was not. Unfortunately no one will have access to that information or be able to add to it now.

      The people that were making money were adding a lot of unique content to their sites and promoted with manual methods.

      The social media and RSS submission automation services only work for less than half the sites they advertise to use. I expect that is average for these type of services.

    I never bought ENE but I know it depended on Search traffic quite heavily so it is a bit of bad luck this got launched when Google wheeled out Panda as Panda has changed things and as a result, made SEO based courses somewhat defunct.

    Well I very much appreciate the feedback and to let you know we are considering reestablishing the forums at IMSuccesscenter.com so that we can bring all the forums into one place.

    I will certainly acknowledge the Blogfeeder had some issues and we are looking at alternatives as we mentioned. The forum really was a members forum for interaction etc and a lot of my mods were on there. However, like I said, it became a bit unmanageable so this consolidation approach to the main forum should make things much easier for everyone.

    With a product of this nature at this price point you very rarely have forums or areas like this to interact so it was a bit of an experiment that became a monster

    With all my traveling, public speaking and weekly broadcasts of the Ask Sean sessions, my time is very limited so my posting is very infrequent as you saw. Not because this was abandoned but because it was in hand with my support team.

    One thing to note that may have caused some problems. The support center is a ticket only center. Emails to the support should have be answered to redirect you to the support center to open tickets.

    Anyway, I honestly do appreciate the feedback and feel terrible that you guys have been left with a bitter taste in your mouth considering the power and potential of this course which you all admit is awesome.

    I will also say that if you have any questions that are not answered let me know personally and I will do my best to assist directly.

    All the best

      Cypher:

      To answer your question, we created a site based on the Simple Silo plugin released. Unlike ENE or any other Sean's other products, it can be accessed for no cost whatsoever, just a 2 second registration. Feel free to drop by the Simple Niche Stragies - Forums. It's only been up a few days, but we're rebuilding the information that Sean deleted with the ENE forums.

      Believe it or not, we actually DO allow affiliate plugs for any product that you represent...and not just in your signature. If you want to promote something, it's fair game in our forums.

      You know the best part? We don't just make money off of our customers and abandon them. We stick around for the long haul.

          Hello Jason,

          Thanks for getting this forum together and I am now a member there. While I was at ENE yourself, Gavin and Jorgen were awesome with all the wonderful support after our self proclaimed leader fled the forum when things started to heat up. Hell, I even lost my adsense account by following his methods.

          I have since unsubscribed from any other knowledge by his offerings which were all low quality anyways! Don't even ask about the support! That's a whole other issue and since it's Sunday I won't use profanity, lol.

          Anyways, it was a pleasure to find out about the forum and I look forward to exchanging greetings with everyone there,

    Looks like the ENE IMSuccessCenter Forum is now closed and ENE members are posting on the Simple Niche Strategies Forum. Unfortunately they are not posting astounding success with the ENE system yet. In fact Google SERPs problems of relying on the autoblogging has been posted. The Google Panda has killed autoblogging schemes. However this ENE package is more than autoblogging and well worth the $37 investment. The IMSC team still supports the ENE package. Only now you have to go the Simple Niche Strategies Forum to see the results of ENE members using the system.

        Hang in there. I plan to be the one of the individuals to make good money with this system and similar ones.

        However, it is taking a little longer than normal as I am learning how to generate sufficient traffic. Afterwards, I will implement what I have learned, learn from my mistakes, and make adjustments until I accomplish my goal.

        Hey Barry,

        Gone Hollywood? Considering I live just outside LA that's funny. I can assure you that I have not gone Hollywood. However, if you want any advice for the 6 sites you have hit up my team and we can give you some pointers in the right direction based on what you have. My support team is not just there for problems but advice too.

        Yeah, it is a shame we had to shut down the forums, there was a real wealth of info there but there were a few bad apples that were pretty much trying to hijack the forums and promote their own products and services and siphon off members. They really kinda spoiled it for everyone and ruined what was a member to member support system.

        Having said that, our support center has always been there if you needed anything.

        For our next product we are going to offer a live Q&A series of webinars to tackle any questions that come up as one of the optional extras so that I can personally address any roadblocks that people may need help with.

        Anyway, as one of my first customers (back in the days of Keyword Diamond mine WSO and Supercharged SEO) I appreciate the feedback.

        All the best

        Sean

          I love how you're still trying to blame your failure on everyone else. Your product didn't work. Period. The people who volunteered to be moderators didn't even bother to log in and moderate anything. Period. Your support staff didn't support anything. Period.

          Yet the failure of the product is blamed on the people who PAID FOR THE PRODUCT and then spent their time trying to help the people who couldn't make it work.

          <sarcasm>You sound like a true leader of men Mr. Donahoe.</sarcasm>

          I smell a $100+ upsell with this one. I suppose whether that is good or bad depends on whether you are buying or promoting. It should mean $50+ to the commission.

      I am installing the advanced autoblogging plug-ins on my site. For 21-30 days, I will publish a unique article each day with no ads on my site. On day 1, I will submit my sites to the website directories.

      After all of my unique content is published, I will set the cron job and plug-in options to publish rewritten auto content as a draft to each site a few times each week. I will also add ads to my sites.

      Likewise, on a daily basis (until I can outsource this) I will review this auto content, quickly edit the worthwhile content to make it more unique, add a few unique sentences, and publish it with the proper credits.

      This way I can stay away from Google Panda penalties and keep my sites updated with fresh content.

      If you want additional ideas or step-by-step details, you could purchase this course.

      If you do not have much or any experience ranking keywords on the first page of Google (in the top 3 positions), I would recommend investing in on-page and off-page SEO courses to learn how to generate search engine traffic.

      You will need traffic to make a decent amount of income.

    My review:

    One of the best course in Internet marketing because this product is a powerful step-by-step training course that teaches people how to create long-term and profitable authority sites that will create automated streams of income. Sean has taken the Autoblog model to the next level and combined it with his most powerful SEO strategies to create authority sites or sites that the search engines love to rank on the first page of their search results.

    all the 15 modules are clear and informative!

    There is a saying I would like to share. "If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right." - Henry Ford.

    As you have seen from many people on this thread, it is one of the best courses they have ever seen. For that feedback I am grateful. Even the negative feedback is productive and helps me identify how to improve things. However, some feedback is rather biased based on some of the issues identified in my previous posts.

    To address some of the success stories. I have about 200 personal and unsolicited testimonials from the 10,000+ members we have in this course.

    I was even humbled when I was at New Yorks Affilaite Summit East and Clickbank Exchange where members of the ENE program came up to me to thank me personally for this system because it is the first real money they have made online.

    We have students making $5000+ per month to $22,000+ per month due the "Scale and Automation" aspect we mention. However, here is one success story I would like to share out of the many we have received.

    Well I've been trying to figure out how to thank you for the incredible new life that you have given me. It's absolutely stunning as to what has happened to me. For about a year, I'd seen many of your free tips and really liked them and recognized them as very valuable. All those tips built trust in your information.

    Then you sold me the ENE program and I started studying it. Well smoke has been coming out of my ears for the last 3 months. I started studying it in May -- so it's June, July and half of August but due to working, it's been part time. However the minute I saw your presentation for ENE, along with the trust you established with me, I just knew by what you said that I had found the missing answer I've been seeking all of these many, many past years.

    Well I couldn't believe it - you were handing me, on a platter, how to get extremely wealthy and my lower jaw was on the floor. Then I started studying like crazy. Oh man, it's really hard to understand at first, but slowly with the help of Lisa and
    Rachael, I began to get the big picture and the details I needed to learn.

    And as I learned and learned I began to see all of your instructions with more and more clarity. Bit of background. In my past, 1978, I was very wealthy and doing all kinds of business in Europe and California but a partner wrecked it all and it was all gone. The only reason that I mention it is that knowledge from back then, combined with my other know how, now allows me to clearly have massive power due to your ENE course. I haven't even finished a complete ENE site, but I'm already making money based on my knowledge.

    You pointed out the huge commissions available on the web and the set up of the web and that immediately helped me make a new business deal with a huge company near Toronto and with another businessman in Sacramento. And even better, it allowed me to create a super new site that I think will become as huge as Facebook. However that site will need about 3 million from an Angel Investor to get it up and running due to the cost of coding - BUT the good news there is that my buddy Mike Pritchard ( Michael Pritchard ) who is a very famous entertainer ( another of Mike's best friends is Robin Williams, he's friends with Clint Eastwood, he knows Zuckerberg and Larry and Brin, George Lucas has Mike's stuff on his site and the list is endless ) And Mike and I are best friends for over 30 years. Mike will find the Angels with the 3 million for sure - but as that relates to ENE, a huge part of the business will involve launching ENE sites along with another spectacular design ( confidential ) How do you relate to all of that -- if I had not received your training, I would have a very hard, hard time doing all of the things I've just mentioned. So basically because I ordered your ENE course... miracles are happening. I can't believe it. It's like I stumbled into the Gold Fields of 1849. Holy Crap! It is absolutely amazing.

    In essence my entire future is now going to be just crammed with success, because of what I learned from you. And here's the kicker--- I haven't even got my first BIG ENE site up and running and all of this stuff is coming to me. By the way, I purchased Commission Junction and will be digging into that as I complete my studies from your ENE course. I'll be following you forever, like a starving man who finally stumbles on you cooking steaks on a barbeque! Just keep tossing me a bone here and there and I'll be one happy camper.

    So this is all to let you know the incredible impact you have on your students -- out there in cyber space. I can't say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, enough. You set up my incredible life. WOW, WOW, WOW!

    And I give you all rights to publish this and show it to anyone who cares to hear about it. And if they want to check with me if it's true or not, I'll be glad to verify my statement to anyone in hopes of helping you in return.

    How about that Sean? Amazing things going on that you don't even know about until now. My roots are also in Great Britain as my Dad's from the Birmingham area and the family roots in Whales.

    All my best thoughts and thanks. Cheers, Arturo

    Gotta point out one key thing in that testimonial that I think you missed Sean:

    I haven't even finished a complete ENE site, but I'm already making money based on my knowledge.
    I didn't make that up...you posted it in the review that you quoted. That's in the 4th paragraph of the "testimonial." Just like most of the others, he watched the videos and then didn't even do anything with the sites...he hasn't even finished one.

    I wonder what'll happen when ol' Arturo there tries to use the IMSC Blog Feeder...

      Or what will happen after a couple of months when Google slaps the site for the auto content. The course teaches to post dozens of posts per day, way too much. Several of my sites did ok at first but soon lost any ranking gained, similar to many other ENE members.

      Sean, is there any new advice to cover the Panda dilemma and this system?

      @J - Thank you for making my point for me. That was to show that the success this customer had was all about mindset. By the way, I sent you a skype request so we can have a chat one on one. I look forward to talking to you directly.

      @Gabby - Well one thing is to not post so many items per day. I recommend 1 post per day per category max.

      As for Google. They have been rolling out new and refined filters every 6 weeks or so and their filters are getting smarter and smarter.

      There are 3 approaches to succeed here. The beauty of the ENE system is that the sites are very flexible to setup with these sites.

      1. Make sure your domain is a deadon domain for a particular keyword. If you are going after "Acne Treatment at Home" then go the domain "AcneTreatmentAtHome.com" or .org or .net... then make sure your home page is targeted to that phrase.

      2. Turn off the autoposting. This is optional but you can just have 10 articles on your site, send backlinks to these and have ZERO autoposting at all. That way you are not fighting Pandas with the autoposting at all. You will be relying on backlinking more but that is very easy to do.

      3. If you want to autoblog (which we still do across 1000 different sites) then we uniqify and spin the posts more. Using The Best Spinner and WP-Unique as well or other methods.

      As I have mentioned, the sites are solid cores and the approach to market them is very flexible.

      With our upcoming launch of Commission Commando we show an even more diverse application that we use with our sites that is one that does not fight Google but works with them in a more co-operative way... again, scale and automation are the key

      Hope that helps

      All the best

      Sean

    I put up a website using this product but am having a problem with it suddenly. I finally got everything working fine then all of a sudden checked the pages on it and it is doing something strange. Initially it was all pages then I uninstalled and re-installed wp insert and all were fine, now all of a sudden the main page is doing it again. Does anyone know why or how to fix it? Would really appreciate any guidance that would fix it.

        As a newbie, ENE was much too complicated for me to implement, especially when some of the pieces didn't work as advertised.

        I finally found a niche marketing system that worked for me, though: Project 100 Registration | Simple Niche Strategies

        Two of my first four sites are already on page 1 of Google. No Amazon sales yet, but my number of clicks to Amazon has increased dramatically. I know I have the dreaded Google Dance to go through, but I also know I will come out on the other end in much better shape.

        If you're experienced at niche marketing, you can probably figure out how to tweak ENE into a workable state, but if you're a newbie, I recommend Project 100 at the above mentioned site.

    It is also important to look at some of the good things contained in ENE which, to my mind, are worth the purchase price ($47 or $37 if you clicked out) alone.

    The tutorial of creating an almost perfectly on-page optimized site quickly and easily (including tweaking the settings of a popular WP SEO plug in) was golden.

    Giving new marketers a good background introduction to researching and creating niche sites from scratch was superb - probably the clearest and most detailed I have seen. Any newbie would be able to follow this and get something worthwhile and professional out of the other end.

    The integration and use of social media using RSS was superb...even seasoned marketers would have learned a lot from this module, even though IMO there was one unnecessary step which could have been eliminated and that an (affiliate?) outsourcing deal was mentioned for a service costing $20 or $25 per site which could be found on Fiverr for...er...$5.

    The whole autoblogging thing is a hot potato anyway. I had unwittingly used the 'cyclone' strategy on sites a couple of years ago and they are still ranking well (one has been Google page 1, #1 for it's main keyword for almost 3 years now) so the general principle works.

    How the content is introduced and what content is used is more the issue, I think. Google own YouTube so they are unlikely to penalise a site for embedding YouTube videos which are 'on-topic'. So in some ways I think Sean was on target, in others not. The plug in he developed was a complete disaster even when it was 'working'.

    OK. The downside and the criticism which is meant in a constructive way but without mincing words.

    Well, the forum censoring (closure) and lack of support do not leave a good taste in the mouths of many previously happy customers. The lack of an alternative (plug in or strategy) when the core plug in stopped working was rather reprehensible, I think. This should have been a priority for Sean - put over and above speaking engagements and other money-spinning stuff. Sean managed to carve enough time from his busy schedule to send e-mails to ENE purchasers promoting some pretty crappy launch offers during this time, I seem to remember.

    One question remains unanswered. In the original sales copy, a main USP of this system was that it was 'Google Panda-Proof' in as much as it was clearly stated that after Panda, ENE sites rankings and traffic actually 'skyrocketed'. On the forum, the moderator called Jim, who Sean had used as a case study for ENE in the pre-launch, often referred to his pre-Panda and Post-Panda traffic and income...but always in a negative way suggesting the opposite to what was claimed - that perhaps 'Plummeted' would have been a more accurate word to use than 'Skyrocketed' But that wouldn't have shifted many boxes.

    So, with the lack of a plug-in which was a core part of the strategy and with no replacement or strategy tweak to compensate for this and some discrepancies or, at least some question marks, of the validity of claims made in the sales copy about one of the USPs of the course, would I still suggest people get hold of it?

    The answer is...if you are a new or nearly new marketer and you and to learn some solid foundations to setting up a whiz-bang optimized niche site and learn how to utilize social media to generate more traffic...then get it.

    You will learn tons of stuff it would take you years to uncover.

    Just realise, in the absence of updates , that you will need to be judicious of what you apply 'as is' and what you will need to adapt and tweak (my guess is that the reason for no updates is that it will be 'relaunched' in a while and, hopefully, existing customers will not have to purchase all over again - but, hey, who knows in this f***ing crazy business).

      To be fair, in the training, Sean mentions that he created the free plug-in but I believe recommends a third party plug-in instead if you can afford it. So an alternative exists.

      I use the alternative and do not have any issues. If so, I can use the forum and the owner will respond in a timely fashion.

      In regards to this third party plug-in alternative, I curate the auto content since almost all of it is gibberish from my experience (content classified as gibberish will vary from one person to the next - one man's trash may be one man's treasure) even with the Best Spinner settings set to "best". Basically, I have this auto content sent as a draft. Then once a week, I review and delete most of it and highly edit the content (including comments) I keep.

      I have taken the authority blog approach and do not want gibberish polluting my 100% unique and highly edited authority content.

      Plus, I was having issues with Google AdSense bots crawling my first four sites. Thus, the AdSense ads did not display.

      However, I had to verify that I owned all of my sites via Google's Webmaster options for the bots to crawl these sites and display the ads.

      Since Google now knows the owner of these sites, I do not want the unedited auto content polluting my blogs and to be associated with my name.

        Exactly. This proves my point.

        Get ENE as it is a superb training....but be judicious in what you include and leave out from the original training as you build your sites. Unfortunately there are no updates to keep abreast of algo changes and what is working or not working. Especially as the user fora have been closed.

          Apparently Sean Donahoe's business plan is to move on to the next product. Commission Commando does not involve fighting Panda bears.
