I'd like to review IM Lobby by Anik Singal. If you are familiar with Anik Singal then you will know most of his stuff is for beginners. Dont get me wrong, that's just fine and dandy. There IS a problem when your course is focused towards beginners and your teaching them how to do things the WRONG way. In essence, thats what IM Lobby does. Ill explain in a sec.


This is my first WF review, so i dont have much of an audience here, but if you follow my reviews, you'll know that I'm a no BS kind of guy. If a product/course is **** then I will say its ****, if a product/course is awesome then I will rate it accordingly. I create my reviews so people can read real reviews, not the whole "buy this so i can collect your commissions" kind of reviews. I'm not trYing to promote myself, I just want the people who read this to understand that it's not all about money for me.

Anyway back to the review. The basic process of IM Lobby, is pick a KWP from the list of 5k keywords that comes with the course, purchase the EMD for the KWP, then use the web based push button software to create a website. Im not going to go into too much detail about the process, because Anik created a few sites in the sales vid, so you can watch that for a demonstration.

So, IM lobby is all about creating push button auto blogs. Nothing more, the rest is hype, In the demonstration Anik showed that the sites he created 2 days before he filmed the sales vid were ranking on the first page of Google. Well when I typed them in they were not ranking at all. So that there proves that IM lobby doesnt have much longevity.

The sites that I created with the IM Lobby are still no where to be found (created them 2 weeks ago).

Since IM Lobby was one of Anik's products, of course tons of people purchased it, so that list of 5000 keywords will dry up pretty quickly and turn in to one big hot ass mess.

Overall, I'm kinda disappointed that Anik chose to go after the push button software crap. If it was that easy we would all be rich. So I dont recommend IM Lobby, and I give it a 2 out of 5 stars.

You can take a look at my site for a more detailed review, and a video review

Thanks for reading! If you purchased IM Lobby too, then tell me what you think!

    Drew, I have never purchased any of Anik's stuff, including the product you just reviewed of course, and I don't know the guy on any level, but I have heard of him.

    In fact I have heard a lot about him - most of it being via bad reviews. However, I have to ask the one question that should be asked.

    If his stuff is so bad, then why does he have such a massive following? - I mean, if I release a bad product, or you release one, then we lose credibility and people (our lists) stop buying from us.

    Yet this Anik guy keeps showing up on the radar as a guy who can move product. So, if he can consistently move product, does that not give him credibility by default?

    That's a good question and i think i may have the answer. Are your aware of the Warrior Forum circle jerk? Well scale that by 10 times and you will begin to imagine the circle jerk that Anik and the other big boys are in.

    If you have ever promoted products from JV notify pro then you will know what im talking about. Often during the launch, the guy who is promoting the product will list the people who are selling the most as motivation to the other partners. The list will often look something like this:

    1. Anik Singal
    2. Anthony Morrison
    3. Andrew X
    ect...

    So to answer your question, when someone like Anik Singal comes out with another crappy product, isnt it natural that he will sell a **** ton of copies when he has 50 huge IMers promoting it to their massive lists, saying its the best thing ever? And lets not forget the hundreds of other small Imers who are creating launch jacking sites for the product claiming its the best thing ever while holding the first 10 pages of Google.

    Point is, Anik could sell a moldy sock for $500 and as long as he is promoting it to his big list and everyone else is promoting it, he is bound to get tons of sales.

    Thats my theory at least.

    Drew - Your theory does have logic. Thanks for posting it. I'm not sure I entirely agree though. I know a couple of the "gurus" (not pals or anything, just have spoke with a couple of them on occasion) and based on the conversations I have had, they are always looking for high quality products to promote because the market is so full of low quality.

    Again man, just to be clear on my side - I'm not for or against any of them, I do my own thing and none of them promote my stuff, I just wanted to add some balance at least loosely based on logic as well.

    I always fall back to this: If all of their stuff was crap, people would stop buying based on their recommendations. It just seems that there has to be some quality in there somewhere otherwise they wouldn't have the massive lists that keeps them in the big-boy circle. - I could be wrong, I'm just trying to participate.

    I purchased one of his products before called commission domination back in 2011...it was a push button blog website creator and it was a mess...from what you explained, it sounds like the same course but with a different name and sell strategy. Not to mention the explosion of my inbox with crappy emails from his camp...

    I'm sure he is great dude who loves to laugh and live life, but he should put people first and really over deliver for customers...but I'm not complaining because that is the way he operates his business and by that, he showed me how not to run mine

    Thanks for posting this. It is quite an eye opener and has really given me something to think about when it comes to knowing more about the people who sell these types of products. Their sales copies are certainly amazing and most beginners can be easily persuaded by their offers. I hope more honest reviews (without the marketing talk) about products like these become easily accessible to everyone in the future.

    Honest reviews are difficult to find in Google nowadays.

    Yes, thanks for posting this. As a beginner I have fallen for lots of sale pitches and wasted a lot of money, and I accept you have to pay to learn. I wish there were more posts like this that highlight when things are not as they seem. Experienced IM'ers provide a valueable service to the likes of me. The WF is the place to learn and honesty should prevail.
    Does any experienced warrior have a view on Paul Lynch?

      Has anyone actually received payment for promoting this?

      I started promoting when it first came out and made a few sales.

      I have emailed several times and always get a reply but still no money...

        The more I research into his programs, the more leary I become about promoting any of his stuff to my lists. You may lose subscribers en masse like some of the other guru mentioned above have done promoting this rubbish.

    I saw today that there are people promoting this BS yet. I purchased and wasn't work either.
    But the videos look great and We want to believe in "magic pills". Hard work doesn't sell....

    I must admit that after receiving Anik's email and watching the "success" demonstrated on screen after screen, I was excited by the idea and the method seemed very doable. When I saw the $97 per mo entry fee, I decided to do my due diligence and check WF for some "truth". After reading thru the thread, it seems that Anik was not operating on a "full disclosure" basis. The idea does seem viable though if it is done manually using SEO on page and offpage systems on a case by case basis. There is. it seems. always some nuggets of truth in every overhyped program offered.
