Welcome to my Print Monkey review. Today we’re going to be looking at another product from the Brendan Mace product conveyor belt.
Having split from long term partner Jono Armstrong, Brendan Mace has continued to pump out products, unfortunately they haven’t been the best.
Brendan Mace does come with a bit of a reputation and despite what some might say it’s not the good kind. More on that a bit later.
I’ve heard rumours that this product is just a rehash of another product that was released just this year, and when I say rehash I mean all that’s been changed is the name.
So if you have bought any Brendan Mace products this year you’ll want to make sure you read this review so you don’t go buying something you might already have.
As well as uncovering if this is a rehash this review will take a look at the claims on the sales page to see just how they compare 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. Then we’ll take a look inside the members area and look at what the upsells are, how much they cost and if they have any discounts.
It wouldn’t be right not to show you some of the complaints I’ve had from disgruntled Brendan Mace customers, ultimately I’ll finish off with our final thoughts on whether Print Monkey is a good choice as a product for making money.
So, without further ado, let’s crack on…
NAME: Print Monkey
OWNER: Brendan Mace
What Is Print Monkey About?
Before we look at the claims on the sales page let’s just go over what Print Monkey is about. I haven’t actually seen the sales page yet so I will be going into this without knowing what this is supposed to be about.
I’ve found the best way to really see what a product is about is to go through the training and that’s where we’re going to start.
Now, remember I said I’d heard this was going to be a rehash, well unless I’m in the wrong members area the training videos for this are from a previous product called Smash My Campaigns which was released January 29th.
In the welcome video he even says “welcome to the members area of Smash My Campaigns” It even says welcome to Smash in the video title:
So, it would seem that this is just a copy of an old product. I didn’t do a review of Smash so I will have to look into it just to make sure it is the same, but even at this point if you bought that previous product you’re going to find something very familiar about this one.
Basically Print Monkey has a bunch of Brendans’ campaigns that include a video and bonuses that you can use as your own, you put your name and affiliate link which you request for each product and then send traffic to that page.
Like I said if you have the previous product you’ll already know all this. Having looked at SMC’s the only difference I can see is the amount of campaigns you get. Print monkey comes with 30 whereas SMC’s only had 14.
The traffic portion of this product requires you to share your link on social media via the dashboard.
Print Monkey Sales Page
Ok, so now we know what Print monkey is all about let’s take a quick look at what sort of claims are being made on the sales page.
Now don’t forget that those campaigns may well make him over $1,000 per day, but that doesn’t mean you’re going to be earning that.
Brendan has a huge list to market to and if you are new and that is who this is aimed at you’ll be lucky if you have a list at all.
Are those claims just hype? Let’s see.
- Do you get 30 campaigns? Yes.
- Has each campaign made him over $1500? I don’t know
- Can you use these campaigns as your own? Yes
- Do you get paid commissions into your PayPal? If you sell any you do.
- Does each campaign include a bonus page and video? Yes
- Is it really just a 3 step system? Sort of, you still need to get approved for your affiliate link and send traffic to the offer.
I don’t know how he’s going to do that, the one thing I do know is it’s impossible for him to make it impossible lol.
This is hosted on their servers so there isn’t anything for you to install which comes with it’s own problems which i’ll cover in a bit, there’s also meant to be email swipes for you to send out ot your list (if you have one) but I couldn’t find any.
The other thing I couldn’t find that is advertised on the sales page is the step by step case studies for each campaign so in theory there should be 30 case studies when in reality there is only 1.
As far as sales pages go this one isn’t the worst I’ve seen, but again it is a sales page so you really need to use your own common sense when it comes to believing what is said on there.
The Good Bits
- 30 day money back guarantee
The Bad Bits
- The campaigns are for products that don’t work like they’re supposed to
- Lack of traffic training
- You’re going to need to spam your family and friends on social media
- Associated with someone who is considered unethical
- No control over hosting
- rehashed product
Who’s This For?
It’s quite clear that the only person this is aimed at is a newbie. Anyone with any experience wouldn’t even look at this, unfortunately someone who is new will see the sales page and think it will be able to make them money too with very little work. It won’t.
Inside Print Monkey Members Area
Before we get into the members area you need to be aware of the upsells that you’re going to see right after you buy this, but before you get access to the actual product you just bought.
Some vendors will advertise a 30 day money back guarantee on the front end, but then either leave it off completely on the upsells or reduce the amount of days.
I will go over what I mean in a while, but for now please don’t buy the upsells!
When you do finally get into the members area you’ll see this dashboard:
What you see above is the training section which contains 4 videos:
- Welcome to Smash
- Case study results
- Anatomy of Smash
- How Smash works
As you can see he couldn’t even be bothered to change the titles of the videos. To be fair I think the use of the word ‘training’ is not the most appropriate, there’s no real training in there.
The campaigns tab leads to either create a new campaign or manage your existing ones. You then have the traffic section where you choose which social media platforms you want to post to.
And that is Print Monkey.
Ah, the upsells. Let me tell you now that these upsells only come with a 3 day money back guarantee not 30 even though they advertise it’s 30 on the sales pages.
Let’s quickly go over what the upsells are and how much they cost as well as let you know if you can save any money on them.
- OTO #1 – Print monkey Traffic – $37 with a downsell to $17
- OTO #2 – Lifetime campaigns – $197 with a downsell to $1 for a 14-day trial then $47 every month
- OTO #3 – Super Campaign – $197 with a downsell to $97
- OTO #4 – Unlimited Traffic – $197 with a downsell to $97
- OTO #5 – Easiest System Ever – $157 with a downsell to $97
- OTO #6 – License Rights – $167 with a downsell to $67
As you can see you could spend a lot of money if you bought all those. You might want to take a look at Donna’s comment here before you decide to buy these, I think you’ll be surprised by what you read.
A quick heads up, all of those upsells have a 3 day money back guarantee apart from OTO #2, that one doesn’t have any refunds whatsoever so just be careful.
How would you feel if you bought all those for the full price of $952 only to find out you could have got the same thing for $375!
To take advantage of that $576 discount all you need to do is click “No Thanks” at the bottom of each page.
Before we finish up it’s only right that I give you some idea of the sort of person you’re dealing with, hopefully you’ve already read Donna’s experience with Brendan Mace.
Complaints range from not delivering the products bought, terrible support, lack of refunds, training done on the fly.
If you want to read the complaints in more detail you can click the links below and read the comment section:
You’d do well to read them before you make any decision, it must just save you a lot of heartache.
Why is the training from another product? Why doesn’t he make it clear on the sales page that this is a rehash of a product that was released a couple of months ago? Because he’ll worry about you complaining once you’ve bought it and found out.
And if the complaints about not getting refunds are to be believed then you’ll struggle to even get your money back.
Are you going to make $1,000 per day with this? Not a hope in that hot place. These types of products are put together to make you think that can happen, there isn’t a real need for them apart from making the vendor money.
There is absolutely no traffic training in here, you’re supposed to spam your social media and then magically make a load of money. The only thing that’ll happen with that strategy is you’ll lose a lot of friends who don’t want to be constantly bombarded with crap.
Chances are they’re not even interested in this stuff.
I think if you align yourself with someone who has such a bad name you’ll be damaging your own reputation. There must be a reason why his long term partner Jono Armstrong decided to leave him, perhaps he got fed up with being tarred with the same brush.
And that’s the risk you run if you start promoting stuff using done for you campaigns.
What I really don’t understand is why people are recommending this to their readers, if they cared about their readers at all they’d tell you the truth, but that won’t do that because then they won’t get them their commission if they tell you not to buy it because it’s rubbish.
Well as I’m not affiliated with this product so I can tell you the truth and I’m not going to be approving this.
Affiliate marketing is a great model to enable you to make money online, but you need a few crucial elements to make it work. Someone elses funnel isn’t one of them.
What you need is to learn for yourself the right way to do it. It’s like that saying; give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he feeds himself forever.
Wealthy Affiliate will do just that, no they won’t teach you to fish lol, but they will teach you all you need to know about making money online.
When I joined over 5 years ago I could only dream of making money online, but today after a lot of hard work I can enjoy paydays like this:
And that is just the tip of the iceberg, once you have multiple sources (websites) set up you can really skyrocket your income.
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 🙂
