Unless you have your head buried in a sand dune, you will know that Keyword Elite 2.0 has just launched.
It looks pretty good, Brad normally creates some decent software, and in some ways it might also be better than current market champion Market Samurai (you can still pick up Market Samurai through the 30 Day Challenge for less than half the price of Keyword Elite through a special deal, which includes a 40 day trial)
I have been having fun observing the ducking and diving among those promoting KE 2.0 and I thought I would add some commentary.
1. No Money?
If you are tight on funds, use the free trial of Market Samurai… enough said
2. It is a Clickbank Product
If you are feeling insanely generous just use that link, but I’m certainly not going to look down on you if you replace my clickbank ID with your own. Some people get review copies, and others have to buy them, the least you can do is grab a “discount”
Don’t worry about Brad, I am sure he will make things up on “Integration Marketing” of various kinds.
3. Keyword Elite Bonuses
The bonus wars are going crazy
Some of the better bonus offers I have seen include
However Some Of This Is Sickening
If you are a 7-figure Clickbank affiliate, it is quite possible Clickbank will overlook flagrant disregard for their long-standing rules against cash bonuses.
It doesn’t set a “safe” example for new marketers.
Clickbank require when offering bonuses to include something along the lines of
Affiliates may offer bonuses that are not cash or cash equivalents if
they adhere to the following:
1) Affiliate must state clearly and prominently that the bonus offer is not the responsibility of ClickBank or of the seller of the primary product.
2) Affiliate must state clearly and prominently that ClickBank will not honor any refund requests that are based on non-delivery, quality, or functionality of the bonus materials.
3) Affiliate must provide their own direct contact information (email address, etc.) and state clearly that any issues regarding bonus delivery, bonus functionality, or bonus quality must be addressed with the affiliate, not with ClickBank or the seller.
It is not posted on the website yet, but our security team will be using this policy from here on out unless we experience any additional problems from affiliate bonuses.
Sorry Anik / Lurn Inc – if you are meant to be the pinnacle of teaching affiliate marketing, any disregard for 3 year old Clickbank policy (even if it isn’t very well publicised) isn’t acceptable, thus no link to your otherwise decent bonus.
To be honest I shouldn’t really link to the others above for the same reason
Clickbank Bonus Delivery
Everyone seems to be living in the dark ages – there is no real need to be delivering bonuses by requiring people to send a message via a contact form.
Even if you don’t deliver a bonus itself immediately, some level of Clickbank Bonus Delivery can be used to immediately contact a user, and if you can’t deliver the bonus automatically (possibly hard to script a membership for 6 months), at least the customer is added automatically to the sales funnel and internal procedures.
Surely the better service is worth investing $100 or less?
If you are not offering a significant bonus, I hope you did very well in the leads contest. Bonus Automation isn’t just a great way of providing good service, but capturing buyers to add into your own sales funnel, with the immediate possibility to upsell customers who have purchased someone else’s product often even before they have even received the email confirmation from Clickbank themselves.
Am I going to buy Keyword Elite 2.0? Possibly, though it remains to be seen whether it can excel in international foreign language markets.
I mentioned blatant transgressions, here is an example doing a quick search for keyword elite on Twitter
If you really need a lower price, isn’t it better to grab a 50% discount using your own affiliate link? (note you would still need to achieve 4 credit card sales from different locations, wait up to 2 weeks plus time to cash a check/process XACH)
I came across another decent bonus from Perry & Ryan – clear disclosure but still a little lacking on the responsibility for bonuses.
Jason “John Cow” Katzenback has a stonking bonus as well.
If you purchase KeywordElite version 2, with the below link, I will get you into Web2Mayhem for FREE for the first 2 months and then i will only charge you an extremely ridiculous low amount after that for each month.
I am not giving it for free forever though… cause it uses resources on my end that cost me money.
PLUS you also get access to SyndicateKahuna with this which is a $67 a month service by itself.
I am pulling this as soon as i hit 200… so go now…
