Hi Guys, I've only just found this post (11/11/09 @ 23:15 approx) and much of what I've found as a client so far and was
already thinking has been articulated here and then some.
You know, when I listened to the Mark Ling webinar with Letian (who really does come over as a standup guy) I had real
misgivings about the cookie cutter sounding nature of the deal but the word "unique" was bandied about a fair bit and I
thought "Hey, Mark wouldn't recommend these guys if they weren't any good and anyway he's buying into the deal himself".
My take on it from the way it was being sold is I shouldn't have to do anything to the site or the product myself surely
that's one of the major points of the deal! Now, so far all my initial misgivings have been realised and compounded by what
Mark has said in his post about using each site and product as a starting point. I understand that aside from the points
already made regarding the clickbank vetting process they couldn't possibly put these products on Clickbank for the price of the deal simply because it costs $50 per product to do that.
I have given DigiBizPro some feed back regarding the quality of the ebooks i.e the 17 page rubbish they initially came up
with and although as Dale points out they have upgraded them to 50-50+ pages they still need a lot more work.
Jamie's latest email 0n 07/11/09 had links to 5 upgraded ebooks in the niches they gave me. For example the Golf niche. The new 54 page ebook which purports to have actually been written by Jamie talks about buying "golfing equipments". I've never ever heard native English speakers say that. We talk about equipment you don't need an "s" on the end of equipment!
There are loads of grammatical errors misspellings and omissions. Eg.(Page 7) "I would have loved to have my book point out your mistakes realtime, which I know is nigh impossible." (It should be "in realtime" and "well nigh impossible") in case you hadn't spotted them. The book is littered with this kind of stuff plus it looks like it (or at least some of it) has been
copied from a different page format because right in the middle of the page (page 7 again) underlined in bold is:
The first baby steps to mastering golf(contd…)
which judging from the rest of the book's format is meant to be at the top of a new page! So zero points for proof reading!
The new 50 page "Water For Gas" ebook has definitely been written by a person for whom English is most certainly not their first language. I could go on about the lack of diagrams etc but I wanted to make the point to Dale that Jamie may be coming through on this but he certainly hasn't come through yet. Clearly I'm no expert however I think if I was going to launch a multi site/product deal like this I would make sure I had high quality ebooks all ready for launch day. It should have all been ready before hand Jamie, so that all this nonsense would not happen!
A side question for Mark (or anyone else who knows) on the subject of Water For Gas. Is Water For Gas still a viable niche and product? Google Trends shows that it was massive in 2008 but is dead now. There seems to be loads of controversy about the claims being scientifically impossible i.e. contrary to the laws of physics. Controversy itself is not a bad thing in the marketing of a product (it can actually be a good thing) but if it's simply not true or a scam then I'd rather have a different niche.
I want to reiterate my point about the deal having been sold as "You don't have to do anything or spend any more money!
Although finding JVs will help." Letian says in his post, "Trust us a little bit, we know what we are doing." I say, "Listen
we trust you enough to be here don't we?" However, here I am so far having had to read several draughts of ebooks for the
same niche and give a critique in 10 separate niches and it's not over yet by a long chalk! Also, on the subject of trust I have to say that financially this is a last ditch "punt" for me because my finacial resources are about to run out so I can't do what Mark is doing until some money comes in.
Which brings up a technical question. For Mark to do what he describes in his post he or his team must have personal access to his websites admin panel: will I ever get access to my sites or do I always have to request changes via the request system? For example if I want an opt-in page or to incorporate an opt-in to my sales page to build my list, I've watched the video I have an aweber account but how do I actually create my opt-in page if I don't have access to the site online to put in the opt-in code?
I believe from what Mark has said and it's obvious in the DigiBizPro training videos that Jamie does know how to market
products but the critical question is can he market all our similar products on similar sites effectively on such a large
scale and how long will it take.
IMPORTANT: On the point of refunds - remember you only have 30 days from the day of purchase to get your refund. My purchase was on November 7th so I have to decide BEFORE December 6th 2009. I promised myself when I signed up to DigiBizPro that if no money had come in 2 days before the 30 day deadline I would demand a refund! Was I naive? I think I probably was! It's not looking that good right now though is it? I don't want to come across totally negative about everything because I'm hoping against hope that it will turn out great but I can't take the risk once the refund deadline is past. Whoops! Another day gone - it's past midnight and it's 12/11/09 here in the UK now! Of course if Jamie was to increase the deadline to 45 or even a clickbank style 60 days he might take some of the pressure off himself and his staff not to mention us customers! Hopefully you can see where I'm coming from...
Finally, Mark please can you do another post here on these issues? You said you would and more than a week has gone by since your last post.
Thanks - sorry for such a long post!
