Welcome to my Forsaken Traffic review. Today we’re going to be looking at a new product from Philip Johansen and Dan Khan.
I’ve come across these two guys before on this blog and I really liked their last product, High Ticket Hero, it was well put together and plain to see that it was something that he was using which is always good to see from someone new.
This has been out for just a day, but I’m sure you’ve seen some other reviews by now and I can bet that they are all positive about this product.
The thing is if you were to have a look at their other product reviews you’ll find out that is all they ever say, everything is the best thing since sliced bread, they never give a bad review.
That is just not possible, but when you realise they are just after a commission you begin to see why they big every product up.
Luckily, you’ve landed here and as I’m not affiliated with this product and don’t stand to gain any financial payment I can give you a completely unbiased review of this product.
We’ll cover quite a few areas in this review and if you stick around to the end you’ll find out our final thoughts as to whether this is a good product or a bad one.
Before that though we’ll be looking at the actual product to see exactly what it is about, once that is done we can take a look at the claims on the sales page to see how they compare to the product.
Once we know what it’s really about we will give you our idea of who would benefit form this the most before highlighting any good points and any bad points.
As well as taking a look inside the members area to see what that has to offer, we’ll see what the upsells are, how much they are going to cost you and if there are any discounts available for you to take advantage of.
We’ll ultimately wrap things up with our final thoughts.

Forsaken Traffic Review – What’s It About?
Whenever I have review access I always like to take a look at any overview video inside the members area I do this because that gives us the best chance of finding out what a product is really about.
You’d think you could simply just read the sales page to find out what it’s about, but unfortunately it’s very rare for a sales page to actually tell you anything about a product.
Basically this is about using YouTube’s Live function to try and get on the first page of Google. You won’t actually be making any videos.
What you will be doing is making a thumbnail and setting it to stream half a year ahead in time which once you’ve created stream will show the thumbnail with the stream date.
You put in an affiliate link for the product in the description and hope for people to click it and buy.
There isn’t a lot more to Forsaken Traffic, there is a section for getting approval which is going to be a bit hit and miss especially if you have no previous sales.
The rest is just a sales pitch for the upgrades which I don’t really like.
Forsaken Sales Page
Now we know what this about let’s take a look at the sales page to see what sort of claims are being made and if they are being truthful or full of hype.
Let’s take a closer look at the first part of that headline. A top secret formula for getting page 1 rankings. There’s a couple of things wrong with that, all they are teaching is to put a thumbnail on YouTube’s’ live feature which doesn’t mean you’re going to get page 1 rankings.
There is so much competition in Youtube for review videos that not everyone can be in those 3 carousel spots.
Tons of free buyer traffic directly from Google. Even if you manage to get on the carousel why are people going to choose your “video” that isn’t going live for at least 6 months over someone who actually reviews the product you’re actually looking for a review on??
So, basically you’re expecting people to buy through your link when you’ve got absolutely no information about the product, all you’ve got is a link.
That doesn’t make any sense for people to choose you.
The only part of those statements is that you don’t need any experience. Wait a minute, thinking about it you need experience because you’re going to need some form of track record to get approved for affiliate offers from WarriorPlus.
As for getting an insane amount of free traffic from Google you’d think that the examples he shows inside the training would actually back up what he says about getting “insane” amounts of traffic.
That proves my point that people aren’t going to be clicking on your thumbnails, they have literally no views. Without any views how do you expect people to click your links?
The sales page goes on to say “Imagine posting an offer and getting 1,000 clicks every day” Unfortunately that’s all you’re going to be doing with this method, imagining.
The income shots you see are supposed to be related to using this method which of course they’re not, they are just random screenshots from random accounts.
As for the testimonials, I wouldn’t take too much notice of them. They aren’t real people per se and what I mean by that is they are all his friends.
There is no way that you are going to get laser targeted visitors and sales today, it’s just not going to happen.
Who Is Forsaken Traffic For?
This is a bit of a difficult question to answer. I’d like to say it would be perfect for newbies, but I feel that this is just another product that is selling dreams rather than anything substantial.
I just can’t see this being of any use to anyone apart from the vendor who is the only one who will make any money with this.
The Good Bits
- 30 day money back guarantee
- Simple process
- No extra monetary expense
The Bad Bits
- Unrealistic expectations
- No training on ranking videos
- It’s a wishful thinking product
- Hyped up sales page
Inside Forsaken Traffic Members Area
Okay, time for a look inside the members area to see what that looks like and what else is in there.
The first couple of videos are simply a welcome video promoting his Instagram account and one that promotes Jono Armstrongs’ Ministry of Freedom course.
The overview video gives a quick look at what the method involves before moving on to the main training which has 5 videos:
- Create your Youtube channel – 2.44
- Getting approval for affiliate offers – 7.05
- Making the magic happen – 11.22
- Unleash the power of Forsaken Traffic – 12.51
- The true way to financial freedom – 8.01
The last 2 videos are just basically a pitch for some of the upsells.
Forsaken Traffic Oto’s
Before we take a look at the upsells I need to give you a quick warning that could save you quite a bit of money. The main sales page has a 30 day money back guarantee on it, right.
Most people would assume that is the case for the upsells as well and that wouldn’t be an unreasonable thing to think. Some vendors will play on that and either leave the money back guarantee off of the upsells or drastically reduce the time available to get a refund.
The exact same thing happened to Matthew and he ended up losing a lot of money, you can read his comment here to see what happened.
- OTO #1 – Pro version – $37 with a downsell to $27
- OTO #2 – Local Takeover – $67 with a downsell to $37
- OTO #3 – DFY super funnel – $97 with a downsell to $47
- OTO #4 – License rights – $97 with a downsell to $47
- OTO #5 – Income overhaul – $147 with a downsell to $47
It turns out that what I was says about the guarantee applies to this as well. Although there is no mention of a guarantee on any of the upsell sales pages you would assume the same 30 days applies to these.
You would be wrong. These only come with a 3 day money back guarantee which is hardly enough time to try them out to make sure they work.
and regardless of their insistence that you won’t see the offers again they are available inside the members area.
So, my advice to you is to skip the upsells until you at least make some money with the main product and then if you want you can always pick these up at a later date.
Seeing as I really like their other products I was expecting this to follow in those same footsteps, unfortunately I’m not that impressed with this one.
Although the method is simple and doesn’t cost anything I think the results are going to let it down especially when your expectations have been built up so far by the hype on the sale page.
If he was trying to convince people of the validity of this product then he should have shown examples of at least his channel getting views.
That’s the minimum you need when you’re boasting of getting insane amounts of free traffic form Google.
As I’ve said why would someone who is looking for a review click on your link when you have absolutely no information on the product over someone who has an in depth review?
It’s a simple answer ….. they wouldn’t.
This is a case of selling a dream rather than putting together a product that would actually make sense and stand a chance of competing with all the competition.
Unfortunately you guys have struck out with this one and I won’t be approving it.
Youtube is without doubt a great way to earn money with affiliate marketing, I know several people who make a decent income form Youtube alone.
But it’s not for everyone and the method you’ve just read about isn’t the answer. People generally start off doing affiliate marketing with a website.
Now, don’t let that scare you, I know it can be a daunting prospect, but it really isn’t as hard as you probably think it is. In fact, nowadays a website can be created in around 30 seconds without any coding knowledge.
