That's pretty funny. I grabbed a few of marks keywords and went to town on google. Much as I suspected when I first started the blog bootcamp back in early December, a pile of folks would copy him verbatim.
I'm sure he suspected as much and didn't plan on making much money from marketing this product. Two things I took away from this exercise, 1) He was looking to provide a quality example to help people get started (Which he successfully did, BTW!) and 2) knowing that most people are not very creative, they'd copy him and give his buddy a ton of affiliates to market their flight simulator.
Get creative, dive into ClickBank and find some original products to market. I plan is to stick to products with a gravity between 30 and 50. This will allow you to both market a product that's proven as well as not being over marketed. Once you've got a nice positive flow of income, than take the risks with the more popular stuff. The key, in my opinion, is to not rush in the same direction as everyone else. ;)
