No, I haven't bought this product. My Commission Magnets review is based on the demo. It seems to offer good value with all-done-for-you templates and bonuses. I'm sure it does. But this is another one of those that promote "making-money-online to make money online for the sake of it". The method of which has become the mainstream for some time now, but I don't necessarily endorse it because can get misleading, or even deceptive. Okay, so here's my thought, the good and the bad.
Commission Magnets Review
Omar and Melinda Martin
What Is Commission Magnets?
Commission Magnets is about selling JVZoo products as an affiliate.
As a brand new affiliate marketer, your first big task is to get yourself to the position where you have all the necessary assets and be ready to drive traffic... To simply put, setting yourself up. It could take you days of researching to find the best landing pages, web hosting company, products that sell, how to go about email marketing, and to get your affiliate status approved by sellers. If you're passionate about setting up a new business, you should be excited about all this - I remember myself forgetting to eat or sleep when I started out. But of course not everyone feels the same way, some may find the whole process daunting.
Commission Magnets will provide all these things that you need, including done-for-you sales funnel packages, free bonus products to give away to entice prospects ("commission magnets!"), pre-approved affiliate products, and email swipes. It also provides 6-hours of video training, so you'll learn one of the most popular affiliate marketing methods.
This product is available for a one-time fee of $297.
Commission Magnets was created by Omar and Melinda Martin, known as the "internet marketing power couple". They have been in the business since 2007, set up a company Higher Level Strategies Inc., in 2009. They are renowned for providing high-quality online marketing training courses and webinars. They have also released programs including My Unfair Advantage, Rapid Profit System, and Commission Magnets.
Who Is Commission Magnets For?
I would say Commission Magnets are made for brand newbies who tend to procrastinate.
The top 1/3 of the sales page is spared for the whole sob story, and this means something. How Omar and Melinda had to spend years living in a shack and trying to make ends meet before they finally found success. Some people just need to hear a story that's relatable to them. They want to be assured that the people who are selling the product are no superhumans.
Most of their training content is suitable for online marketing beginners, and Commission Magnets is no exception. This product is made for those who just cannot take the first step for all sorts of reasons; who have no idea where to start, who feel scared of failures, who are apprehensive of creating their own websites.
What's Included in Commission Magnets?
Commission Magnets includes:
- 8 x done-for-you sales funnel packages and web hosting, so you don't have to worry about building a website, creating a landing page that sells, or buying a domain name.
- 40 x original bonus products to use in your campaigns (to give away to entice prospects, i.e. "commission magnets"!)
- Marketing materials - 48 email swipes and 48 posts that you can simply copy & paste to promote your affiliate products.
- Instant Affiliate Approval - affiliate products from JVZoo are pre-approved, so you can start promoting them without sending an approval request in advance.
- High-quality video training - how to use the sales funnels, bonus materials, and to be able to create your own funnels eventually.
The Video Training
Here are 5 modules of video instructions to explain how you use Commission Magnets sales funnels, plus an extra bonus module.
- Video 1: Assembling The Audience (72 mins) - How and where to build a responsive audience.
- Video 2: Constructing The Bridge (45 mins) - How to create a pathway between your prospect and the product you're trying to promote. Your prospect will be sent to this page before they're directed to your affiliate page.
- Video 3: Bonus Incentives (35 mins) - Stress-free ways to add a bonus offer to all your marketing campaigns, what to offer and how to quickly put it together.
- Video 4: The Perfect Offer & The Glue (63 mins) - Where to look for the best offers to promote and how to select them.
- Video 5: Deliver The Goods (22 mins) - How to deliver the goods in a way that makes the buyers buy more products through you.
- Bonus Training Video (26 mins) - Omar maps out an entire affiliate campaign so you can visualize the funnel process. You'll be able to apply it to design your own affiliate funnels.
What Is The "Bonus Offer" Method?
The bonus offer method is used by many JVZoo (and Warrior Plus) affiliates to make more money. It's the way of saying to the prospects, "If you buy this product from my link, you'll receive these bonus products for free from me personally."
Brands don't normally allow their affiliates to do this without their approval because it could mislead users and easily harm their reputation if an affiliate promoted their product with a third party's product of inferior quality as a bundle.
But the method is particularly endorsed by JVZoo and Warrior Plus. Their aim is to simply do whatever it takes to generate sales, and the vendors are okay with that. The free bonuses should be related to the product that they sell, but I find many of their affiliates who don't seem to care, they often throw anything on their page and offer to give away 20-30 outdated PLR products. Quantity over quality.
My personal view of niche affiliate marketer's job is to find valuable products (good quality, reasonably priced) from a user's perspective and recommend it to other users. Not blowing up the content value by adding whatever they like to falsely create a bargain.
With all that said, I'm not saying the bonus-offer method is wrong, because these marketplaces and vendors legitimately allow their affiliates. I just don't wholeheartedly agree with the idea of it. I'm not saying it's wrong. If I really liked a product and the seller encouraged me to add any freebies of my choice, I'd probably do it to sell as many copies, you see.

"The most valuable thing I've ever done!"
How Much Will It Cost You Before You Start Making Money?
As you may have noticed by now, Commission Magnets is an online marketing tool plus training. You won't make any money if you don't drive traffic. Free traffic methods are hardly effective (because everyone's doing it!) so you need to invest a good amount of money on paid traffic if you want to see results quickly.
How much it will cost - this is a difficult question, because obviously the more you spend, the more people will visit your page, hence the bigger chance of making more money. Commission Magnets will cost you $297, plus I would say, set at lease a couple of hundred dollars aside, up to a few thousand if you can.
Melinda and Omar will teach you where to find good traffic sources and how to use them, but the training will cost you extra. I would recommend My Online Startup - this guy Chuck Nguyen will teach you for absolutely free.
30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
If you're not happy with Commission Magnets for any reason, you can send a refund request within 30 days of purchase. According to the refund policy, you must send a copy of your JVZoo receipt and tell them your full name as well as your login information.
The guarantee only applies to the front-end product for the first-time purchase. With any upsells with recurring monthly fees including Buzzinar, Funnel Boss and My Unfair Advantage, the 30-days refund guarantee won't apply, but you can cancel the membership at any time by submitting a ticket and requesting a cancellation.
I think it's pretty fair. If you're sensible enough, you shouldn't get carried away and buy all the upsells at the same time. Get everything set up as instructed in the video and once you're happy, decide whether you want to consider purchasing any of the upsells.
Commission Magnets Pros and Cons
Commission Magnets Review - Conclusion:
If you are brand new to affiliate marketing and want to know how a sales funnel works and how you generate leads, you'll definitely get a good idea from Commission Magnets. You'll have to start learning how to replicate it using your own landing page builder at some point in the future (otherwise you'll keep buying done-for-you platforms over & over again!) So it will give you a good opportunity to start off. The projected income displayed on the sales page is misleading though - you'll have to set aside a lot more money to spend on traffic to achieve that kind of result.
