Welcome to my Dolphin Dividends review. Today we’re going ot be looking at a product by Dawud Islam. This is someone who I’ve come across a few times on this blog and to start with I was very impressed with what he put out.
It was only when I found out something about him that I began to change my mind coupled with the fact that he was partnering up with people that don’t have the best reputation in this industry.
Hopefully he can revert back to his old ways and produce something of value without all the usual hype and BS.
What we’re going to be looking at is the sales page for this product to see just how it compares to the actual product itself. We’ll go over any good bits as well as any bad bits before letting you know who would benefit from this.
The members area will also get a look as will the upsells, these will come with a little warning that could save you a lot of money so look out for that.
Ultimately we’ll wrap things up with our final thoughts as to whether or not this is a product that stands any chance of making you some money.
So, without further ado, let’s get this show on the road…
NAME: Dolphin Dividends
OWNER: Dawud Islam
Dolphin Dividends Review – What Is It About?
Before we take a look at the sales page I just want to let you know what Dolphin Dividends is all about and seeing as I have access to it I can give you a full rundown.
This all revolves around producing Low Content Books, no I’d never heard of them either. Apparently they can be things like journals, logbooks, coloring books, notebooks, puzzle books, planners, etc, books where the person buying has to fill it in.
Once these books have been created which shouldn’t be too difficult seeing as they are pretty much blank you’ll list them on Kindle Direct Publishing.
The main focus of attention in this training is the creation of maze books which will of course require you to add mazes to your book. Where to get these from is covered in the training.
Your book needs to be a minimum of 24 pages to publish on KDP or 100 if you plan on releasing a paperback version.
The training also has a section showing you how to make a cover for your ebook as well as how to list on KDP.
This doesn’t have any traffic training per se as you’d be expecting for people to be able to find your book by searching on Kindle marketplace.
There is something in the resources section that is titled “Free niche traffic sources” which i’m not really sure what that has to do with this course, but when you go to access it you have to sign in with Facebook messenger which will give the author, Ike Paz, carte blanche to spam you constantly on Facebook.
So, if you were expecting Dolphin Dividends to be something about dolphins you’re going to be disappointed I’m afraid, not a dolphin in sight.
On a serious note, that is what DD is about, creating these LCBs and listing them on Kindle marketplace.
The Sales page
Now let’s take a quick look at what they are saying on the sales page. As I mentioned earlier this can go either way, but hopefully he’s reverted back to the plain and simple sales page.
Having been through the training I’m not convinced this does work, the examples he showed inside the Kindle store were so far down the rankings that I’d be surprised if people made any money with mazes especially as they sell at $1.99.
He says in the video on the sales page that within 24 hrs you’re going to be making money with your own low content books which is just a ridiculous thing to say. I’ll leave the video here for you to see for yourself:
I can tell you now that people are getting fed up with all the hype that surrounds these types of products unfortunately Dawud himself was guilty of that when he released Expansion.
I seriously didn’t know that Kindle publishing was a secret place, did you? You’re never going to be getting profits in hours, well you might do, but not the kind of hours you’re thinking, more like a months worth of hours!
Who Is This For?
The main type of person that this would suit is someone who has a lot of time on their hands and doesn’t mind not making any money.
The Good Bits
- 30 day money back guarantee
- clear videos and audio
- Simple concept
The Bad Bits
- The mazes can’t be completed on device they have to be printed out
- A lot of work involved for what would seem little return
- Got the impression this is just an idea that is not very well researched
Inside Dolphin Dividends
Before we get into the members area I just want to give you a quick warning that could save you a lot of money. Straight after you buy this you’ll see the upsells and it’s those upsells that have been known to cause trouble for some people.
Matthew lost $600 when he didn’t realise the upsells that he bought didn’t come with the 30-day guarantee that the front end came with. You can read his comment here.
My advice to you is to just skip them, for now at least. They are readily available inside the members area anyway so you don’t have to worry about missing out.
Back to the members area. Once you’ve skipped past the upsells you get access to course dashboard which looks like this:
This is built on the Clickfunnels platform which is very intuitive and very easy to navigate with the menu on the left and all the corresponding videos being shown on the right.
We’ll quickly go over what the upsells are, how much they cost and if you can save any money on them.
- OTO #1 – Pro version – $37 with a downsell to $17
- OTO #2 – 6 x Super Solos – $67 with a downsell to $47
- OTO #3 – 4 x reseller rights – $97 with a downsell to $67
- OTO #4 – Done for you – $197 with a downsell to $97
- OTO #5 – Launch with me – $997
That little lot would cost you a staggering $1,395, wow! At least I’ve managed to save you $170, but to be fair you really don’t even want to be looking at these.
If you are thinking about buying this product then you’re going to need to concentrate all your efforts onto that.
Oh, to get those discounted prices just click “No Thanks” at the bottom of each page 🙂
When I first came across Dawud Islam I really thought that the products he put together were quite good which is why I approved the first few.
Unfortunately he admitted that he doesn’t have any original ideas and just bases his products on what is already out there which is how he can release a product every 2 weeks.
Then he decided to partner with different people and that’s when the sales pages became just like all the rest with all the hype and ridiculous claims.
This product really comes across as just an idea on how he can release yet another product without any real substance, it seems he might have heard about low content books from someone and thought that he would make it into a product that he could sell.
His training of using mazes for Kindle publication is a strange one, the place you get the mazes from requires the person to print out the mazes which not everyone is willing to do, some reviews actually bring this point up and say that this sort of thing would work better in paperback.
Are you going to get your first profits within hours? No, of course you’re not. Are there secret places for you to market them? No, of course there isn’t.
It’s just rubbish. You’d be better off checking out some of his earlier stuff.
This one though is another Dawud Islam product that I won’t be approving I’m afraid.
Creating these low content books takes a lot of time and it’s that time that you’ll never get back, you could be spending that time learning new skills that will allow you to create your own online business.
The sort of skills I’m talking about is the sort that enable you to create your own affiliate marketing business. Wealthy Affiliate has been teaching those skills since 2005 so you can see they are a legitimate business.
I found them 5 years ago and although it’s taken a lot of time and effort I can enjoy paydays like this:
And don’t forget that’s just one income source, the key to this business is having multiple sources of income.
Imagine having 3 or 4 sites all producing money like that. I think you can see the potential.
At the moment Wealthy Affiliate is offering free starter memberships, they’re also throwing in a free website and 10 free lessons.
Simply click the banner below, no credit card needed, just a name and email address and you’re good to go.
I’ll meet you on the inside and be there to help you every step of the way. You’ll even meet the owners who will stop by to welcome you 🙂
