Welcome to my AffiliSites PRO review. Today we’re going to be looking at the latest release from the Kosky boys who seem to be on a bit of a mission lately to see how many products they can release in the shortest possible time.
I think I’ve reviewed around 11 of their products before, but I certainly haven’t reviewed them all and that is where I have a big problem.
All these vendors release product after product all claiming something along the lines of they’re the one to make you 3+ figures every day.
What the heck happened to all the other products that claimed the same thing? I’ll tell you what happened. 9 times out of 10 they didn’t work and those that did never came close to the claims being made on the sales page.
Do you get the impression this type of thing pisses me off? Damn right it does. I see way too many vendors trying to fleece people out of their money in this industry and it makes my blood boil.
It’s my job to help you figure out what’s good and what’s crap because unfortunately you just can’t go off what the sales page says and you certainly can’t go off what the other so called reviews are telling you, they’re just basically just repeating what you see on the sales page.
This review is going to be different to all those and something you might not be familiar with, but at least you’ll get an honest opinion and that’s all it is at the end of the day, an opinion, but it’s an opinion based on years of reviewing products so it’s a pretty educated one.
OK mini rant over and done with, let’s crack on with the review.
NAME: AffiliSites PRO
OWNERS: Glynn & Leigh Kosky
What Is AffiliSites PRO About?
Basically this is meant to be a turnkey product that comes preloaded with affiliate products for you to promote. Each product has it’s own prewritten review along with overall rating and pros and cons plus a demo video.
There is no hosting to worry about, no tech skills needed and no maintenance. It also has 100% free traffic included and doesn’t require you to have an email list or to pay for traffic.
That’s all sounds great on the surface doesn’t it, most reviews would end it there, but I want to dig a little deeper and really look into those claims. After all how disappointed would you be if you bought this on the back of those claims only to find out they weren’t true?
A Closer Look
One thing I want to bring to your attention is the income shots on the sales page. There’s no getting around they’re pretty impressive aren’t they, but you know what I could fake those numbers in a couple of minutes to make it look like I’ve been making twice that amount, it’s very simple to do.
Now, I’m not saying these guys have done that, not for a second, but don’t forget also these guys have been doing this for the last 7 years!
Those figures are there to get you thinking you’re going to be making those numbers if you buy this product. I’m going to tell you now that is never going to happen. Heck it’s taken them 7 years, do you really think you’re going to replicate that any quicker?
Right, so this comes preloaded with affiliate products for you to promote. That doesn’t mean you can! You still have to approach each individual product owner and apply for your affiliate link.
Now if you are new that could be a big problem because vendors typically don’t like giving approval to people with no track record.
Those preloaded product each have their own prewritten review, right. What do you think Google is going to see when you try and rank these websites?
DUPLICATE CONTENT! And to be fair pretty poor duplicate content, they’re just snippets from the sales page of each product, no real review.
And that means they are never going to rank so you can forget about building a long term business with this. There are other ways to get traffic that doesn’t involve the search engines and he does go over them in the training, Instagram, Pinterest and Youtube all of which require a decent amount of followers.
That’s the free way, but if you want the potential for near instant results you’re going to need to pay for your traffic in the form of Solo Ads.
But just because you’re paying for traffic doesn’t mean results.
The section where it mentions Pros and Cons made me laugh, almost all the products had the Con of “could benefit from our bonuses” Lol.
What Did I like?
- Not a lot really
What Didn’t I like?
- Over hyping expectations
- Everybody gets the same content
- No chance of organic ranking
- Too reliant on social media and paid traffic
- Still have to get approval to promote actual products
- Preloaded “reviews” aren’t actual reviews
- Because they host it, If they get bored and shut down you lose everything
Inside The Members Area
A quick warning about the upsells which you’re going to have to get past before you make it to the actual product you bought. If you were to buy these upsells at this point you could land yourself in trouble.
The reason I say that is because I’ve had a lot of people comment about getting their money back from these expensive upsells. Struggling to get back $20 is one thing, but when you risk losing hundreds it becomes a different matter altogether.
Just to give you some idea of what I mean take a look at Donna’s and Stephane’s comment here to see what I mean. I have had reports of these guys stalling on refunds on their previous products and I just think it’s better to be safe than sorry especially with the amount of money that’s at risk.
Once you do get into the members area you’ll find a pretty standard layout especially if you’ve purchased any of their products before.
Like their other products this was very slow to navigate around and would suggest their server isn’t the best. Hopefully it’s not something that’s going to get worse, but that’s the chance you take with cloud based software, it can be very hit and miss.
There’s one vendor who uses it all the time and has very poor results with it. Funnily enough it’s one of the preloaded products within Affilisites PRO.
The training that’s included is very basic stuff and when it comes to the traffic side of things is very poor.
We spoke about skipping over the upsells in the section above and that’s really good advice quite simply because they are readily available inside the members area so you don’t have to worry about the fear of missing out.
- OTO #1 – Unlimited Version – $97 with a downsell to $47
- OTO #2 – Done-For-You – £97 with a downsell to $67
- OTO #3 – Automated Traffic Flow – $97 with a downsell to $67
- OTO #4 – Conversion Boosting Tools – $67 with a downsell to $47
- OTO #5 – Bonus Page Creator – $67 with a downsell to $47
- OTO #6 – License Rights $197 with a downsell to $97
They seem to pull that stunt all the time with their products. I can only imagine how you would feel if you paid $197 only to find out you could have got it for $97.
Pretty pissed off, am I right?
My personal thoughts on these upsells is you really don’t need them, but if you feel you’d like them and want to save yourself some money then ignore what it says at the bottom of each sales page and click “No Thanks” and you’ll be presented with the discounted price.
On the face of it this looks like a good product especially if you’re new to affiliate marketing and that’s who this is targeted at. I say that because anyone with any experience wouldn’t touch this.
People who are new are going to see this as a shortcut to the promised land and that is exactly what the vendors are portraying this as. Unfortunately, as I’ve learnt myself, there are no shortcuts in this business.
Why would you want a website that is exactly the same as the next person? You wouldn’t, you need to put your stamp on it.
Besides, the “reviews” that are on these sites are terrible, they’re not even real reviews. No thought has gone into them, no-one has gone through the actual product that the review is about and it shows.
People aren’t stupid, they will know if it’s a review that has taken the time to go through the product so that they can base a buying decision on.
They don’t want a repeat of the sales page, they want an in depth review, not just some “This is great, buy it here” rubbish.
Like I say this is one of those products that is going to appeal to the newbies, but will have them asking for a refund pretty damn quick when they realise it isn’t as easy as they say it is.
And as for conning people out of money, well, I just think that sums up the sort of people who peddle stuff like this. I’m sure they wouldn’t like it if it happened to them or a loved one, but they seem to have no conscience when it comes to doing it to you. I just hope you read this review before you chuck your money away.
What Other Options Are There?
Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money. Unfortunately the concept has been twisted into something that people have been led to believe is easy to do.
The concept is easy to do, the execution of it is the harder part and it’s that part where most people give up mainly because they find out it’s not as easy as these vendors made out.
They don’t make the money that they thought they were going to make, become disillusioned and move on to the next product that pops up in their inbox.
It’s that circle that is preventing you from succeeding. I know because I’ve been there and it wasn’t until I told myself I need to concentrate on one thing and one thing only that it started to work for me.
If you want to you can follow in my exact footsteps and start a journey that will lead you to where you want to be, but it is a journey, it’s not going to happen overnight and if you can’t accept that then I can’t help you.
Sorry to be blunt, but that’s the truth.
If you feel you can focus on one thing and not get distracted by all the shiny objects promising this and that then join me.
