The DayJobKiller will Also Kill Your Reputation


Small Business Ideas Forum

A friendly place to find help & encourage one another

I got an email the other day from a prominent affiliate marketer, promoting the DayJobKiller eBook. She mentioned that the tactics weren’t exactly above board, but that they would indeed work.

Then I ran across this over at Brian’s blog, The Truth About Internet Marketing. He trashed the thing.

I was glad I didn’t spend the $77.

So I dropped Brian a line, and we swapped some emails. He gave me an overview of what the book is about - and unless you want to get banned by AdWords and tick off a good portion of the IM community, skip it.

There are way better ways to make money online - ones that actually would allow you to sleep at night, too.

Thanks for the tip, Brian. :)

PS: For Affiliate Marketing help, a product I have actually heard great things about is the Ultimate Wealth Package. I’m off to purchase it promptly. Review forthcoming. ;)

    I actually just got a copy of dayjobkiller a few days ago but haven’t got the time to read it. Will be reading it this weekend to see how bad it is.

    I liked Affiliate Project X and so I bought DJK. Hmm…

    Hey Wendy,

    Since we’re talking about Day Job Killer, I just had to bring up Steve Pavlina’s excellent Top 10 Reasons You Shoud NEVER Get a Job!

    Very insightful as most of Steve’s stuff, but not for the timid. :-)

    Have an awesome day!

    I am glad you didn’t waste your $77 on what is likely not worth reading. I amazed at the number of people who drift to such schemes. I wonder how they live with themselves?

    I’m always wary about this kind of sale tactics (adwords arbitrage in particular). Every time I read those sales page, it smells too fishy for me to buy into their crap.

    Wendy, it’s $97 from what I see on the sale page. And thanks for writing about this, so innocent people won’t have to waste time and money (I believe it’s refundable since it’s via clickbank).

    Renee, I agree that it can be a sketchy industry. But in the internet marketing business, those long sales pages are indeed ok, as long as they are selling a great product, of course. I blogged about them once myself, when I broke down and wrote one for a coaching course I ran earlier this year.

    It always comes down to doing your homework. :)
