I’ve received a number of questions regarding my affiliate campaign where I’m promoting:
Most questions center around:
- Why did you choose them?
- How much did you make?
Here’re the replies:
I chose these 2 products on the basis of:
Secret Blog Weapon (ok, the creator calls it WordPress Adsense System which sounds very scientific): This is a fresh blogging package by Malaysia-based blogger Gobala Krishnan. Gobala has been in Internet Marketing and specializes in blogging.
The contents of the package are listed in my previous post: At last, a bloggerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s path to making Internet Marketing money!
The product was launched a few days ago.
First adopters will reap rewards in traffic, Google PageRank and increased Adsense revenue. Gobala’s system is based on sound principles and will stand the test of time.
Do you need it? If your Google PageRank is currently 2 or below and your Alexa is above 100,000, Gobala’s system will definitely give you a leg up.
If you have no idea what your Google and Alexa rankings are, you definitely need this product!
Ewen’s Secret Affiliate Weapon is one of the craziest buys at $9.97. In case you missed it, here’s the previous post: Ewen Chia the Internet Marketing and Affiliate Marketing guru
Ewen is widely known as a “super affiliate” having regularly topped the top affiliate marketers list of Internet Marketing luminaries like Marlon Sanders, John Reese and the Internet Marketing Center. This product also contains access to his secret blog which contains the solution to the recent ‘Google slap’ (which affects Adwords and Adsense revenue).
How’ve my results been?
I’m using a combination of SecretBlogWeapon and UltimateAffiliateWeapon for my affiliate marketing campaign.
In four days, my net earnings amount to $220. The income came from various affiliate marking products. The numbers are actually better than they look when you consider that my blog links (especially the sales links) were inaccessible for a day when I was applying Gobala’s optimization routines on my WordPress blog.
Should you get it now?
Definitely! You’d help me.
But here’s how you benefit.
I’m offering access to my Internet Marketing insider forum for any purchase of either SecretBlogWeapon and/or UltimateAffiliateWeapon.
You will need to buy through one of these links so my order tracking system can capture your particulars.
What will the Internet Marketing insider forum contain?
I’ve compiled a long list of resources which will complement your blogging, adsense and affiliate marketing efforts. These will give you a further advantage over other Internet Marketers.
I will share advanced Internet Marketing strategies which my team has developed recently and you’ll be the first ones to put them into action.
In fact, I found it was very funny how you will be paid to put some of these strategies into action, while simultaneously generating backlinks to your blog or website. Backlinks will help pump up your Google and Alexa rankings.
Will you have money rolling through the door?
If anyone says you will make big bucks overnight, stay clear away!
If you’re focusing on building a sustainable, consistent and ethical business, you will see the reward in a matter of time, depending on the effort put in.
I’m opening up 20 places in the forum. This may not sound like a lot.
However, my team will be working with each of you to help refine your blog or website. My technology development team is creating additional WordPress tools which will help enhance your results. You will have priority access to these tools.
I’ve already received feedback from some of the buyers that they aren’t interested in the forum and they just want to do casual blogging.
This means there could be much less than 20 people in the forum.
Is this good news?
Heck yeah! I’ll be happy if there is 1 participant in the forum.
It means I will be working in depth with you.
Please don’t take up the forum offer unless you are committed to grow your business.
Ultimate Affiliate Weapon buyers will receive a 3-month access (worth $30) to the Internet Marketing insiders forum, and Secret Blog Weapon buyers will receive a one-year membership (worth $120). If you buy both products, you’ll receive a
18 month lifetime membership (priceless!).
Does that sound fair?
I plan to close this offer once we’ve hit 20 members, or early next week. Whichever comes first.
This will give me time to execute our Keiretsu Marketing campaign next week.
Imagine a race where there are 1041 participants and there are two winners.
Would you join in?
Odds sound stacked against you?
What if it costs nothing to participate in and the prizes could be worth million of dollars?
Does that change your mind?
That’s the situation when I took part in Ewen Chia’s Super Affiliate Cloning Program (SACP) challenge. Ewen has been consistently top affiliate for Internet Marketer’s Marlon Sanders, John Reese and Mike Filasamie. He’s the Internet Marketers’ Marketer so to speak.
The SACP would be the ticket to getting the training and tools to become a ‘Super Affiliate’ essentially the top 1% of affiliate marketers. (and the top tier affiliate marketers pull in hundreds of thousands of dollars each month in affiliate income)
I joined in the race to be one of the top two.
Determined to give my all to succeed.
This was my entry: (contains explicit language – scroll past the bold text if it will hurt your eyes):
In the midst of the competition, Ewen set aside a 24 hour period to answer all questions related to affiliate marketing, no-holds barred.
You can check out: Ewen Chia’s questions and answers about affiliate marketing.
It is a useful primer for those new to affiliate marketing and gives tips to enhance your existing efforts.
And midway through the competition, Ewen mentioned there’d be a second phase to the competition and he’d be giving away a third ticket.
Did I go for it?
Here’s my entry (some explicit language again, so scroll through if you are easily offended):
So I had to fend with 154 competitiors for the third ticket.
I waited for the results.
In the meantime, Ewen did an interview with Marlon Sanders which contains lots of information and insight. I’d like to post the URL, but it’s been removed.
The day of the results!
I did not conqueor.
Was I disappointed?
Was I majorly peeved?
But more so, I wanted to know what did the winners have in their entries that helped them win.
More important than merely winning the race, is to understand the methodology and being able to leave with a ‘takeaway‘ rather than leave the table with nothing.
Have I captured Ewen’s 24-hour Q&A about affiliate marketing?
Captured it as a PDF for reference?
That’s money on the table!
There are 2 types of situations we constantly find ourselves in.
Sometimes we win. Sometimes we lose.
I didnt do so well this time.
- I’m aiming to win the Internet Marketing war.
If there’s interest, I will perform an analysis of the winning posts. (so others can win the next battle)
PS: if you’re not already an experienced affiliate marketer, check out Ewen’s Secret Affiliate Weapon. It’s priced at a crazy price and you get loads of useful materials you can use immediately to get results.
I was frankly quite surprised by the massive take up rate of Ewen Chia’s Secret Affiliate Weapon, and I am in the process of sending you the special reports I promised.

When’s the best time to go into Internet Marketing some ask.
But if you’d want to capitalize on huge masses of people, rabid for products, and willing to shell out top dollar for products and services, you can’t get better than special events, celebrations and holidays.
The Olympics and World Cup are way past (with some racking in revenue in the tens of thousands off affiliate marketing) and retailers rejoice as the year-end shopping comes about.
For some retailers, more than half their annual revenue could come from the Christmas shopping season alone, so there’s adequate time to do strategic planning to capitalize on the business opportunities.
We can’t kill Santa, but we can sure make a killing at Christmas.
How fantatical are the consumers? Consider Zach Comm’s (son of Adsense guru Joel Comm) post on: Bionicle – A Fan Critiques the New Sets.
Fanatically loyal fans can make and break the market.
Put toys and Christmas together and you have a lucrative market.
To succeed however, you’d need to do accurate research to position yourself for success.
Here’re some suggestions:
- Scope out the forums: What’re the hot topics? The Xbox360 and PS3 are on everyone’s lips, but could there be a sleeper hit? Maybe paintball guns? The new-fangled Furbies? Star Wars toys? Only insiders have the inside scoop, so blend in, get the buzz.
- Top seller’s lists/wishlists: Amazon and other retailers list their bestsellers (possibly updated hourly depending on their order processing infrastructure). Identify trends. What’re the hot new technologies that’ll be in toys? GPS? Bluetooth? USB/firewire connectivity? What will the next ‘killer’ toy be? Is it for boys? girls? unisex?
- Support for other channels: Successful retailers will tend to expand their branding and presence by branching into other media like Web sites and TV programs, cartoons, etc. You can gauge the popularity of these media by looking at their Alexa/Google PR rankings (for the Web), Nielsen ratings for TV, and rating services for radio programs.
- Offline still rules: The above channels are adopted by manufacturers/brand owners, but it’s important to adopt a needs-based approach and get feedback from the consumers themselves. Poll your little nephew/niece and his friends. Talk to your friends kids. Get a pulse for what’s hot and hip. Not from the advertisers, but from the consumers.
With good data at your fingertips, you can then position yourself.
Opportunities are always out there.
It’s just a matter of seeing them.
I have been looking at Ewen Chia’s Secret Affiliate Weapon for some time.
It’s quite impressive that a Singaporean has gone on to build a list of 200,000 customers from just one product.
I have been quite keen to check out his Secret Affiliate Weapon for some time.
Even though I’d heard a lot of good things about it, and it only cost $9.97.
I decided to wait. And do nothing.
It took my friend Stuart Tan’s post that Ewen might be going into semi-retirement that spurred me into action.
I took the plunge this afternoon and bought it.
I am glad I did and I should’ve done it sooner.
Secret Affiliate Weapon comes with a whole pack of ebooks and videos that will keep me occupied this weekend.
I am astounded how he has managed to give this much information for $9.97. I’ve bought products in the hundred of dollars which have contained less useful information. This is fantastic value.
To encourage others to get into the world of affiliate marketing, I’ve done a tie-up where I’ll package additional information to those who buy the product on my recommendation.
