SmartDD V3 Now Released


SmartDD v3 is released. I hope you feel it was worth the wait.

But before you go racing off to the members area to upgrade, make sure to READ THIS first so you understand the implications.

#1 – If you purchased SmartDD on or since 1st March 2008, then you get the upgrade for free. Hopefully I can upgrade everybody over the next day or so. Please be patient.

#2 – If you purchased SmartDD before 1st March 2008, then for 24 hours it’s just $17.00, let’s say until 11.59pm GMT (6.59pm EST) Friday night.

#3 – After the time in #2, the price goes up to $27 to upgrade.

#4 – I’ve tried the most common possible combinations of purchasing and upgrading, and they work for me. It’s possible that someone will run into a problem. Please raise a support ticket at if you run into any issues. Again, please be patient.

Okay, now I know that one of the burning questions will be “what feature did you add in that delayed release by yet another week?”

Answer – ClickBank!

The four most requested features were free sign ups, one time offers,, and ClickBank support, and we’ve done all four. A close fifth was memberships and subscription functionality – we’re going to try and get those in before Christmas. It will be a 3.x release, so any V3 members / owners will get those for free.

Finally, and I know I’m going to get panned for this…

Because we added in ClickBank support at the 11th hour, I suspended the docs as things look a little different now. I’ve had to junk a lot of my screen shots, and it means I’ll have to do them all again. Please be patient while I finish off the docs.

YES, I will do them this time!

Over the next 72 hours, I’ll create a decent set of videos running over each of the main new areas of functionality that have been missing up to now, or are new.

So that’s:-

#1 – The web store and the three built in templates.
#2 – Using and creating templates.
#3 – Kunaki.
#4 – Free sign ups with Aweber as the example.
#5 – One time offers.
#6 – ClickBank – easy that one.

In fact, using ClickBank is as simple as adding a new publisher ID, creating an item and then selecting ClickBank on the button code generator screen, and finally copying and pasting the code onto your sales page.

SmartDD does the rest as usual.

You know what? I think you should be able to work out how some of it works just by taking a guess at it. Only the web store and the templates aren’t so obvious, although it’s easy to get to grips with once you’ve been shown how.

Okay, that’s it for now. You have until this time (ish) tomorrow to upgrade to V3 at the reduced price of $17.

Frank, you sly old fox!

You made it on 23rd with just about an hour to go!!

I’m glad I stayed up late now, waiting for this. And I have the comment sniper tool you recommended sometime ago to thank for it.

I just need to check when I last bought. I think it was before March, but either way I’m getting this baby today!


P.S. Clickbank? Cool.
No docs? No problem, real men don’t eat quiche and real men don’t read docs….. JOKE ON BOTH COUNTS!

Hmm, I logged in and couldn’t find an upgrade button. 🙁

Do you know how stupid I feel after hunting round for 5 minutes, only to find that I already have the V3 download enabled and don’t have to ‘do’ anything?

Well, pretty stupid, I can tell you.

In my defence, it is rather late…..

But the upside is that I get to download V3 so that’s me not sleeping for a few hours now while I check it out to see how it works. 🙂

Excellent News, Frank!
Congratulations on the release of SmartDD v.3!
With all the added funtions this will be another “must-have” software program.
And with the membership integration coming up as an add-on before long the SmartDD will sell like hotcakes.

Congratulations on your birthday as well.
Remember the saying:
“It’s GREAT to grow older, especially when you consider the alternative!”

Wow, the new features look awesome. It’s a no brainer for me to upgrade, and this will open the product up for more folks as well. I need to do another round of promotion for the new version.

Frank, sounds cool!…

Shame I can’t actually remember my login details, as it has been a while since I last logged in! In my defense though, or could this be stupidity, I do remember ‘possibly’ having 2 accounts at one time! (Opps!)

There really isn’t that much of a rush, although, if I really do need to upgrade then I’d need to do it defore my time was up! (I like cheap me!)</i.

If you have the time to take a look for me, then it would be much appreciated! I’m pretty confused, and puzzled, and it’s a little late now!

Hi Frank,
I’ve got SmartDD V2 (not sure how long ago I got it), and, like AMIN, I can’t find anywhere to upgrade to V3. He continues to say “only to find that I already have the V3 download enabled and don’t have to ‘do’ anything?”
I guess he’s smarter than me, because I can’t find the “download enabled” he speaks of in order to upgrade. I don’t know if it’s free for me (since I can’t remember the date of purchase of V2 and can’t find my receipt — OUCH!)or if it’s going to cost me $17 bucks… but either way, I want the upgrade and want to get the lower price point on it if I do have to pay for it…
So… where do I find the upgrade “enabler”?
Please contact me at my email address (which you have on file) and let me know.
Thanks… and great work. This sounds like an awesome upgrade on V2! I can hardly wait to get working with it.
