Launch Paid Ads For Free Review

30 replies
Hey guys, so I just got emailed about a product which has just launched so I decided to check it out as always.

It's by Andrew X who I'm sure your all familiar with and is called Launch Paid Ads For Free.

Now, I must say that I am not happy with this product at all. The idea behind it is that you can supposedly get ads that you would normally pay for, free.

Basically you get a software which is a glorified search engine scraper of a key word you choose. You are then supposed to contact the site owners to arrange a revenue share where you split profits of an ad you place on there site.

For one, who would agree to this, when they can simply charge you a set rate for a period of time. Secondly the only people who would agree to this are people who own sites that dont get much traffic and obviously no revenue.

By the way, the software only scrapes sites, you have to manually contact the site owners, so if you scrape 100 sites - that's a lot of time spent sending emails.

All in all the training in my opinion is not up to scratch.

6 Modules, in which all of them show you very basic training from finding the affiliate page on offers, to signing up to affiliate networks such as ClickBank and BlamAds.

The guy who does the training videos has a very annoying, gravely mono-tone voice too, which is quite annoying to listen to.

Just wanted to post this and give you guys a heads up. Some of you may find something of value within the course, but for me it was totally not worth the money (FYI I NEVER refund a product, good job I didn't get the up-sells lol).

Remember, this is just my opinion. If you have also purchased, please feel free to leave your inout in this thread.

    This may be the case, but all in all the training in my opinion is not up to scratch...
    So, are you saying that the concept is actually ok although the training annoyed you?

    The stats that he shows appear to be from Sept 2011 and obviously the whole concept appears too good to be true, so I'm still on the fence. Could someone really stand there making all those claims on video for all that time and then not deliver? Surely not!

      What I meant was, in theory the method may work but I highly doubt it (and if it does work, you'd be lucky to see commissions)

      Basically you get a software which is a glorified search engine scraper of a key word you choose. You are then supposed to contact the site owners to arrange a revenue share where you split profits of an ad you place on there site.

      For one, who would agree to this, when they can simply charge you a set rate for a period of time. Secondly the only people who would agree to this are people who own sites that dont get much traffic and obviously no revenue.

      Sorry for not being clear, I've just added this post to my original.

        I stand corrected then. Someone really can stand there making all those claims on video for all that time and then not deliver. Seems like the legislation that gave rise to the Earnings Disclaimer is long due a re-write.
        Far be it from me to suggest that the screenshots are anything but the truth, but Clickbank snapshots are a bit 2010. These days you need to see video proof of someone signing into their Clickbank account and moving around the screen whilst the real figures are being displayed.

    Good thing I didnt promote this to my list. I had a suspicion it was going to be similar to Jani G's Get FB Ads For Free crap product which basically is where you pay for a Facebook ad, then the revenue you earned off of that would make the FB ad you bought free. Stupid concept.

    Thanks for the review

    Bought this yesterday - stupid of me but it was a senior moment - WORST series of OTOs I have ever seen - a full hour before I even got to the product link - and then.......no access until I get the receipt from the processor, Clicksure.

    Never received the receipt...send a support ticket to Clicksure AND merchant 18 hrs ago - no response from either one, but of course the charge has already hit my card.

    An interesting note: yesterday there was a live support pop-up window on the Clicksure site - that disappeared and has never come back. There are other threads around different forums that affiliates are having problems getting paid by Clicksure -

    This is a big reason why I LOVE the warrior forum and all the warriors looking out for each other! Thanks so much Josh for writing this review - it saved me the time, frustrations, and money investing in a crummy product. I was intrigued by the sales page, but I definitely would've been sorely disappointed by the product as you describe it. Why would someone do a rev share when they can put up their own ad and make all the money??? Maybe you'll find a less than savvy website owner that will do that, but that just sounds too good to be true.

    The main thing for me that would stop me from purchasing (IF they actually told you more aout what the product did in the sales video) this is the fact that the software is only a glorified Google and Bing scraper that gathers websites based on the keyword you input.

    So that basically means it fetches the first few pages of Google. No matter the keyword, the first page (maybe the second too) would be full of either authority sites, Wiki Sites or SEO optimized sites.

    Those type of sites wil probably have some sort of paid advertising anyway so what would make them consider a rev share option when they are already generating income? Nothing. This would only work on small sites on pages 3 + and then there wouldn't be much point in doing it as they would receive (probably) little to no traffic at all.

    Glad I could help you guys. Just a shame so many people are promoting this, so it means a lot of people will/are purchasing it.

      I found that it's totally the same with jeff walkers product: traffic broker.

      the concept is the same.

      sell other's products on other's sites.

      The key is that how to find potential sites owner creatively and get a high response rate to put the affiliate link.

      And they can't ensure this, just sell a concept and offer some cheap resource.

      The software is no value, everyone can google themselves.

      I haven't bought it ,that's my opinion...

      Andrew and winter earned so much, i just wanna them give me

      one of those campaign, tell me the exact steps to copy and follow...

      But i think they can't offer this..

      sales video said: the only one seceret is that finding one stratedy really works

      And i think: i just wanna buy the stratedy you sell to me exactly step by step, not just a concept and resource.

      To spend time to test, with risk is time consuming...

      welcome to review

    Update: the 'live' refund window finally reappeared on the Clicksure site, and although it showed them as 'offline' I went ahead and filed my complaint. Within 30 minutes someone responded via email, said that it was simply a pre-auth and that no charge had actually been completed, so it would be taken off by tomorrow.

    Usually, it states on this particular card if it is a pre-auth - this one does not, so we'll see what happens tomorrow. BUT - still no response at all from the vendor.......

    All in all - not a pretty experience but probably for the best since the product sounds as though it was certainly not worth the money by a long shot.....

    Here's the thing, why would any site owner who get's lots of traffic need us to do rev sharing? they could easily get their own AFF banners and keep 100% of the profits.. Can anyone further explain phil and andrews logic to this product?

    What's funny is, he refers to all these other scummy videos before his in a bid to legitimize his claims.

    WF is the first place I check when I smell a RAT! Sometimes I don't even have to smell a RAT, and I am here fast to check on whats cooking lol

    I un-subs from their list(s) and I still see them coming, that means they may have subscribed me to more that one email list, is this legal?

    It's good to hear peoples opinions on the product, but no one has actually given any proof that the system does not work. No one here has actually attempted to do the things it would take to implement the business model in order to say it definitely does not work. The only thing I can see is loads of people saying why they think something will not work based on their own reasoning. Has anyone gone through each of the modules and then proceeded to implement what is being taught? Or are we bashing the product because in our own opinions it may not work?

      I've been through the modules in detail. I know this won't work as this product was already released last year, I think it was called Paid Ads Free. But let's be honest, think about what I said in my review above. How would this work? Advertising in sites with little to no traffic? Yes it may work but IMO its not worth the time to find a blog that will let you advertise, then actually wait and hope for a commission. I've advertised with banner ads before and the results were poor, even when advertising an offer which is ideal for the demographics.

      If you want to try this, you may as well just buy ad space, and put a related offer for that blogs niche. Yes it costs, but in the long run its cheaper and quicker than doing what's taught in this course.

        I´d like to add that during the process of trying to close the offer of Launch Paid Ads For Free product there is a step where you can get a campaign for your email. I did it, but I didn´t get anything. So I don´t recommend to leave your email there. (The cascade of offers is ended by 20 USD discount = 19 USD final price).
