Regarding a product in ClickBank. Scam or Legit?

14 replies
Hey, first of all, if this not the appropriate category for this, kindly move it to the suitable one.

Now, I was looking forward to promoting a product from ClickBank known the Az Code which has over 100 gravity. So, I thought to have a look around on this and I found a couple of sites that show that the Product is actually a scam. The video reviews of clients in the program sales video were actually done using services from Fiverr.

The two sites that reviewed Az Code and proved fake testimonials are:
1) http://workanywherenow.com/the-az-code-review-scam-or-make-10000-week-from-amazon/

2) https://himoneybyescams.com/is-the-az-code-a-scam-my-review-exposes-the-truth

What I want to know is if this the real thing about the program, then how come it has 100+ gravity and one of the most? I just don't want to promote s#itty things to people and ruin my upcoming reputation and get showered with refunds right from the get-go.

What do you all think about this?

    On Cb you'll find loads of products that are not legit but are selling because they have a good VSL (video sales letter) or TSL and the whole marketing funnel well set up, the people perceive it as a valuable product even if it may not be as they claim... but it's all about marketing for many products, they know what they are doing..they know how to sell in other words

    ...I usualy check a couple of things to make sure it is worth it.

    - I try to find the author and check his reputation or what's his expertize in his field, check out his blog/site, books (if any), linkedIn profile, etc
    - Read the forums and trusted blogs to see what people say about that product

      That's a good point - you will soon find out if someone has a good or poor reputation.


      The internet is a good place to search for information like that before you purchase or promote something.

    Those are both "Wealthy Affiliate" review sites, so have no meaning.

    Claiming other programs are "scams" and then recommending WA as an alternative is what WA teaches.

    Buy it yourself if you want to know the truth.

    I think it doesn't matter at all what anyone in a public forum thinks. You are the affiliate and you have to make a decision about what you'll promote based on your own thinking ... not that of people not familiar with your concerns.

    There are rules on this forum about calling out individuals and products as fakes or scams. Have you visited the Internet Marketing Product Reviews & Ratings section of this forum to see what possible discussions there might be regarding your product in question?

    The very best way to answer this concern of yours as an affiliate promoting a product is to protect your reputation by actually owning and using any product you plan to endorse. If you find it beneficial and of value, then you can promote it without risking your reputation. Fill your affiliate referral with your personal experience and findings so prospects will know you actually own and use the product.

    They simply cannot be a scam because they do not offer a business opportunity of any kind - they retail digital products provided by other sellers and manage the affiliate

    Search for more "product" reviews and you will come across many similar sites to those 2 above. Degrading a product and actually promoting Wealthy Affiliate. And after reading a couple of them, they love to refund products, some don't even buy or own the products they review.

    The only way to tell if the information is good?

    Buy it yourself and rate it yourself and only then decide if it will help your prospects

    The best bit is to buy the product yourself and check it out. Also, you can ask the vendor what their refund rate is.

    If they reply and refund rate is lower than 10% and you find the product consistent with what it advertises , then start promoting it.. See what happens..

    I don't promote products I don't own. For example, I promote a proprietary trading firm for financial trading. But I have an account with them and use them so I can vouch that they hook you up with the money and pay you what you make.

    However, their are scam products on clickbank where affiliates will just promote them without caring about if the product is good only caring about if it has a good sales page. this is what amateurs do. I have benefited personally from every product I promote.

    However, be mindful of review websites. most of them always say everything is a scam expect what they are promoting.

    Its a tricky situation. You will have to think critically about this. I hope this helped.

    Why you focus all your effort to one product?

    Focus on the niche. And if you are in doubt with a product, simply don't promote it and promote another one you can trust.

    And better, you tried before.

    You don't have to overwhelm your list: better focus on products and coaching you trust.

    Regarding the G level, I can safely say it is not a scam at all! There are a few rules like any marketplace has and a certain level of income needs to be reached before you can take your earnings, but not a scam at all!

    Do heavy due diligence on the product creator. Are they prominent on social media? Engaging? How does their blog look? Valuable. Vet them by their generosity and engagement; folks who give away the farm and chat their peeps up are always good money; anybody lacking in either department should usually be avoided because they have something to hide. One Google search and you will see me in 40 gazillion places online. Folks can easily buy into me because I am here, and there, and helpful. Learned from scheisters nearly a decade ago what not to do.

    The best thing to do is to get a copy of the program and use it, if you find it to be good and valuable, then go ahead and recommend it to your audience but if it's a total crap, don't promote it.
