Five Minute Reviews – New WSO

Some time on Monday 14th, I’ll be releasing a new WSO and it’s the first of a couple of projects I’ve been working on with Martin Salter.

If you’ve been reading my recent emails then you’ll have already heard me mention Martin a few times.


While people have often told me they’re impressed with the amount of products I put out (yeah I know I don’t always get it right), my output is piffling compared to what Martin can do. He can put together an entire product including videos, ebooks, sales page design and sales copy in 20 working hours (at a push).

I’m 99% certain that there are people reading this who have had Martin create a white label product for them. And I’m 100% certain that there are people reading this that have bought one of Martin’s products and not realised it was Martin who created it.


So you know that when he gets stuck into a longer term project then it’s going to turn out something special.

This is the first of them that we’ve collaborated on and we think it’s pretty damn cool. We’ve both said that if we saw this when we were both starting out a few years ago we’d have snapped it up. But the nice thing is it’s not just for newbies either. Even though we’re the ones creating this, we’ll be using it on our own sites too.

It’s something we’ve both been doing for a few years now in an on-off fashion when it takes our fancy, so it’s nothing new in that respect. But it’s very new when it comes to how it affects you.

We’ve created an easy (for you) way of adding product reviews to your blogs in under 5 minutes per review.

The way it works is we create the reviews at an average 2-3 per month – very probably more than that – and you do a quick copy and paste of a shortcode with your affiliate links embedded inside and create a new WordPress post. This then creates a short pre-sell review on your web site which points to a fuller pre-sell on a completely unbranded white label site.

Pre-sells are a great way of introducing a potential buyer to a product.

All the white label site reviews appear with your name on them and your affiliate links – the method we’ve put in place effectively rebrands the site to appear as if it’s all yours. When a visitor clicks the link on ANY of the reviews on the rebranded site, you earn the commission.

What that means is that even if people don’t buy the product in the review they originally came to read and instead buy something else, you STILL earn the commission on that other product. (Martin and I don’t take any of the commissions – they’re all yours – we earn our money from membership subs.)

Now we know that there are some membership review sites out there already, and that they’re asking for $27+ / month – eventually we’ll be there too when we hit our targets.

But on the 14th we’re releasing a WSO for $7 membership which is a $5 discount on the official launch price. This is a monthly recurring subscription, and we think it’s so low and so easy to increase your income that it’s the proverbial no-brainer.

When you’ve registered and added your affiliate IDs, then it will take you about 5 minutes to add each new review to your blog. Mix that in with some regular blog content of your own and you’ll begin to build and fatten your personal cash cow.

Even if you consider yourself a complete newbie, then you can do this.

And once you have your reviews in place, then all you need to do is make forum and blog comments in order to see traffic clicking through to your blog. Where you could then also make them an offer to join your mailing list.

So not only do you easily build a pre-sell review blog, you also get to build a mailing list. 🙂

I hope you can see the potential in this simple to do method.

I’ll drop you a line on Monday the 14th when the WSO opens.

Really GOOD Membership Software

I’ve looked all over the place for a GOOD general purpose membership script, preferably for WordPress.  Have I found one?

I’m still looking.

A weakness I’ve noticed in many of the membership scripts is you’re either IN the membership, or you’re OUT of it.  It doesn’t seem like there’s been enough thought given over to all the different methods of actually handling members.

Even the the one I’ve found that has considered that you might not actually want members to be just in or out is flawed.  The assumption is that it’s a drip fed membership concerned with supplying content as learning rather than as products.

Here’s the specific scenario I’m thinking about where the content is product, as with PLR Code Mine.

Someone joins a membership today.  They’re a member for three months and then for whatever reason they drop out.  Two months later, they rejoin.  What would you expect to have happened in this scenario?

What I expect from a really good membership script is that if someone has been a paid member for 3 months, then they should ALWAYS have access to that content, even during the times they’re not a paid member.  So if the content they’ve purchased is updated, they get the benefit of it.

If they then drop out for two months, then as administrator I should be able to specify that they shouldn’t get access to that two months worth of content.  They’ve missed the boat.

I may also wish to sell it to them at a much higher price than if they’d been a regular member, to allow them to catch up.

So when they rejoin at month 6, they now have access to months 1-3 and 6, but not to month 4 and 5.  They can purchase month 4 and 5 at say three times the regular membership price if they wish to, at which point they then have perpetual access to it, even if they drop out of the membership again.

To me, that would be a perfect membership solution.  But I’m damned if I can find anyone that does such a script.

I have found one where a lot of thought has gone into membership as learning, but not where membership involves a product.  What happens there is that when the member rejoins at month 6, then they get access to month 4, not month 6.  And the workaround suggested by the very helpful developer / owner involved just doesn’t cut it.  Grrr…

There’s nothing for it, I’ll have to get my own done.  I can see from other sites that I’m a member of that there’s a real need for such a script, as they all have the same issues.  I’m either in or out, and once a month has gone by, the back products get removed.

I just find it difficult to believe that no-one has ever sat down and thought about this.  Fortunately for me, it’s such a glaring omission it leaves the door wide open for a BETTER membership script than the rest of the stuff on the market, doesn’t it?

Watch this space.
