Affiliate Bots Review: How You Can Actually Make Money
My Affiliate Bots review is a real user's review. It only cost me $12 plus VAT but took me a while to decide to get it, because ALL the Affiliate Bots reviews that I could find from Google search were absolutely unreliable rubbish. Half of them are no or low quality 'reviews' by the affiliates, rating 5 stars offhandedly. They promote the product without actually using it - they're not reviews. Other half are giving lower rates purely based on the look of the sales page (which is pretty misleading by the way). What's the point of checking reviews if none of them is actually reviewing the product?
Anyway I decided to purchase it because I was genuinely interested in some of the features, and also Chris, the creator of this product in his introductory videos sounded pretty genuine to me. You know, many sellers often only focus on the copywriting technique on their sales page and fail to explain how the product actually works. So Affiliate Bots 2.0. I have mixed feelings;
- Is the sales page genuine? - No. Grossly misleading and somewhat confusing.
- Is it a scam? - No. I find some of the tools/features actually useful.
- Do I recommend this product? - Yes. But only to certain marketers.
Affiliate Bots 2.0: What Is It?
The sales page says "$17 for 37 Software Bots!"
There aren't 37. There are only 16. Upon logging in, you'll see 17 tools listed one after another....but the 2nd tool is missing. There's a software No. 1. Then there's a software No. 3. So there are actually 16.
Plus PDF guides and some old free WordPress plugins. Others are upsells. The platform is very messy. So if you want to scream "scam!" then, yeah.
It's currently sold for $17, but leave the page open for a few minutes and a $5 discount offer will pop up. If it doesn't, leave the page and revisit. You can get it for $12 plus sales tax depending on where you live. As I said, I find some of the tools pretty useful, therefore for that price, this product is a value for money. The 16 affiliate "bots" are made mainly to;
- Help you build affiliate websites that convert, and
- Find out the hottest affiliate products.
Most of the tools shown here are cloud based and accessible from your own Affiliate Bots ("Pro Club 2.0") dashboard, unless stated otherwise.
Can You Make Money With Affiliate Bots 2.0?
Yes. But not in the way the sales page explains. The current sales page starts with a header that says "How I'm Making $417/day Commissions Right Now". Then if you scroll down it says "PROOF: $9,393 In Affiliate Commissions in Just 28 Days of January". $417 x 28 days = $11,676, man. How can this make sense?
But it's the standard copywriting technique to sell 'make money online' products. If this makes you think the product might help you to earn the same amount of money, you're too naïve. Check other products via Warrior Plus - almost every seller promotes this way.
Anyway I'm glad I got Affiliate Bots because I make great use of some of the tools, which I will start explaining now.
#1 AI Traffic Search Engine
I think AI Search Engine is one of the best tools that this product offers. It's Affiliate Bots' own search engine, showing the top 100,000 websites in Alexa ranking (over 100 billion monthly visitors). Using various filter options, you can check which sites display ads, Adsense, whether they're a marketer or an eCommerce vendor, whether they have email lists, Facebook campaigns, etc, etc.
I'm not sure how each and every filter can become useful though. Most of these big sites have social media accounts, so what?
How Can You Make Money Using AI Search Engine?
One thing that's very useful is that, it lets you find out the websites that offer advertising opportunities. Filter out by checking "Ads" box, then search. Ignore non-English sites, try to choose some independent sites who offer ads, and click "Ads" button in the middle of the list row. It will take you straight to the advertising opportunity page. So you can advertise your affiliate website / sales page / lead generation page there. Most of them are PPC, and of course you have to pay to advertise. But I think that's a big potential for you to make money. Having said that, I haven't tried that myself just yet!
#2 Access Web Widget
Access Web Widget is a collection of handy popup widgets. It detects the user's location, OC/device and the number of visits from the cookies. So you can offer them a discount coupon according to their location or with a countdown timer, tell them that your affiliate product is compatible with the device they're using, or offer a discount when they've visited your site for the 3rd time, for example.
You can customize the text, color, trigger action (e.g. visitor's stayed in your page for 1+ minute), and the position to display. It will then generate code. All you do is to copy the code and paste it in your <head> </head> section.
It's a handy tool, but because you need to have the code in your header section, you can't have it on a specific page within a website domain. You'll need to create a subdomain with one dedicated page for it to work.
The Best Affiliate Products Finders
I find these 3 tools extremely useful. The tools are to find the best affiliate products from ClickBank, JVZoo and Warrior Plus respectively. Without these tools, you can still visit each site and sort the list manually to find the products but the tools will save you a great amount of time.
CB250 is supposed to list up the top 250 ClickBank affiliate products. Currently it's showing me only 209 products in total. Surely ClickBank manages more than 250 products, and why is the list showing less, I don't know? But anyway that's plenty.
The list can be filtered by product niche. Also can be filtered by Alexa ranking, gravity rate, and commission rate (50%+, 60%+ or 75%+). It also allows you to set the search query by new products (<3 months), established products (>3 years), affiliates refer >90% of sales or affiliates refer >70% of sales.
#4 King Of The Zoo
King of the Zoo finds the top JVZoo products for you. Each product is displayed with its crore rate, growth rate, how many have been sold so far, price, conversion rate, and EPCs. Also with most of the JVZoo products, you need the seller's permission before you can start promoting on their behalf, so each product indicates if you need to request for a permit or not.
You can also filter the list by niche, price, units sold, EPC, new products, rising products, 10%+ conversions or $10k+ launches.
Warrior50 finds all the products on Warrior Plus that have made at least 50 sales.
Each product is displayed with the number of sales, description, EPC$, Average sales and a link to the affiliate application page. The list doesn't have a filter function, therefore not as versatile as CB250 and King of the Zoo. But at least the list is sortable. The list is currently showing me 488 products.
Can You Make Money With These Affiliate Product Finders?
Yes. I've found a few great ClickBank products using CB250 and made some commissions. I could have found these products without it, but the tool has made it easier for me to compare the top products at a glance.
#6 The 1-Click Affiliate
This tool will create a sales page text template for you. All you do is to insert a few related keywords in each category box (niche, product name, benefit, result, failure phrase such as "wasted time"), and this tool will compose a variation of sales letter example, consisting of the headline, intro, "pain", middle part, closing part.
For example the "pain" keywords that you enter can be "losing existing customers" "wasting so much money". Then it will generate a variety of sentences such as;
- STOP: Time to put an end to losing existing customers!
- You don't have hours to spare trying to overcome wasting so much money.
They might not always come out right grammatically, but you get the idea of what to say in your own affiliate sales page.
I've seen these phrases hundreds of times over the years. They're corny and old-fashioned in my opinion and personally I wouldn't use them. But people still buy into these phrases; they're proven to work. So it's up to you to decide this sales phrase generator is useful or not.
#7 The Rapid Video
This is a video maker software that you need to install on your computer (PC and Mac versions available). You could create a long video, split by clips and each clip can have a different image (still or moving). Audio can be added. But that's all it does, and I'm quite disappointed by the fact that it's not exactly user-friendly (it's virtually free, what do I expect?)
It doesn't let you save your work. So once you start working, you must finish it!
You can only choose one color of text throughout. It means you can't have different background images. Choose only dark images and make the text in white, or choose only light images and dark colored text, so that it's readable.
Here's a minute of video that I just quickly created; A few clips from Poupelle of Chimney Town (credit to Akihiro Nishino, who's written, illustrated and directed this picture book. The movie version is due to be released in 2020.)
#8 Auto Affiliate Ads 2.0
Auto Affiliate Ads is a clever one. Access to this tool and you'll be shown with thousands of banner ads by Clickbank's top affiliate programs, sorted by gravity. First, you need to filter the list of banners by niche, type (gravity, Alexa ranking, commission rate, PPC, price), also filter by banner design (vertical ads, horizontal ads, screenshots, text headlines).
Choose up to 10 of them, copy and paste the code in where exactly you want in your webpage. The banner ads will automatically rotate. So each time a user visits your site, they'll see a different banner.
This feature can be useful, but can be pointless too. Unless you have at least hundreds of visitors to your site daily and want to split test, there's no reason why you want to have different banners in the same position on your webpage.
Good news is, it's extremely easy to set it up. There'd better be a banner in the box below. If you can't see it, it's not working!
[Update] ...No it's not working, how rubbish is that!
#9 1-Click Video Pro
1-Click Video Pro is a collection of 8 x video page templates (there are supposed to be 10, but I can only see 8, never mind.) This tool will allow you to create either a simple CTA page or lead generation page literally within minutes.
All you do is enter the header title, subtitle, text, choose a button (for CTA page) or add your autoresponder code (for an opt-in page), and enter YouTube URL. There are also pre-made template videos to choose from ClickBank, though some of them are outdated.
Preview the page, and if you're happy with it, download it.
The design's outdated, and also the downloaded page will be index.html together with necessary files. So you need to know where in your web space to upload all the files for the page to work. Not for your WordPress site.
#10 Flip DB
Flip DB allow you to search the auction site Flippa for websites that are for sale. It lists up the sites that are making $200 - $26,000 per month. And you can filter search by keyword, profit, Alexa ranking, sites with affiliates, social media, email list, etc. Obviously only useful if you're looking to buy a website, i.e. could cost you hundreds to thousands of Dollars.
DomainAveli is a simple tool to check domain availabilities. What's unique is you put two words in two separate boxes, and it will show up a list of available domains. For example I just put "banana" in one box, "monkey" in the other, and clicked search. It came up with a list of available domains such as bananamonkey.co, bananamonkey.tv, banana-monkey.net and so on.
It's a nice little tool, but you know you don't really need it.
Dropaveli is a tool to search for "dropped and expired" domains. It shows just over a hundred available domains that are supposedly dropped/expired. But if I pick some of them and check the domain history in Icann Whois site, nothing comes up. So unfortunately, I'm not sure this tool is working correctly.
Now, the rest is pretty rubbish, unfortunately...
#13 Host Affiliate Bot
It's simply a list of 21 web hosting companies who offer an affiliate program. Each host shows a commission rate and days to payout, and a link to the affiliate page.
It will save you a little bit of time if you ever decide to build a web hosting review site, then you know 21 of the major web hosting companies, and you can apply to become an affiliate for each one of them by accessing from here. (Instead of googling "how to become a Bluehost affiliate", etc.)
#14 The IM Affiliate Bot
I take it this tool is perhaps obsolete. It shows a list of 20 affiliate programs with the name of the vendor, commission rate, price, Google and YouTube competition rate. You can search the list by product or keyword...but there are only 20 in the list anyway.
#15 The Resell DB
A list of 14 websites that sell PLR products. Is that all? Yes it is!
I really don't know what this software does. It will let you download a set of files. It says you'll need to set up a domain, hosting, etc (what is "etc"?) then install the software on your server with the instructions inside the zip file. So I look at the instruction. It doesn't actually say what it does. It says "open the installation URL and it must work fine". What must work fine?
