Kevin Fahey’s IM Affiliate Funnel Review

By Eugenson | Negative Reviews

IM Affiliate Funnel Featured Image

IM Affiliate Funnel was put together by Kevin Fahey, who claims it’s “a newbie-friendly method” that puts money into the pocket of even the most inexperienced internet marketer, up to amounts ranging from $33.75 to $730.85 per day. Kevin promises to give his subscribers one of the best PDF reports he’s ever put together on everything he’s ever learned as an affiliate marketer.

Kevin also promises to give his subscribers a set of PowerPoint slides to help improve their affiliate sales. He promises to make available the very email swipes that earn him $4,000 in affiliate commissions, revealing how he does it. Kevin goes ahead to promise his subscribers lessons on how to find the right products to promote and how to market on Facebook. In addition, he promises lots of bonuses within the members’ area.

I’m Not Marketing IM Affiliate Funnel

Before you proceed, I’d like to clearly announce that I’m not an affiliate of IM Affiliate Funnel or Kevin Fahey. I’m only sincerely trying to safeguard you and all internet marketers from wasting hard-earned money and precious time on worthless products. Therefore, this review is my candid opinion formed after a thorough evaluation of IM Affiliate Funnel.

A Summary of This Review

The IM Affiliate Funnel is a product that provides affiliate marketing training videos and materials that the vendor claims would facilitate affiliate sales for its subscribers. Whether or not these training videos and materials are high enough quality to help its subscribers achieve their goals will be clear to you at the end of this review.

Low-Ticket Product

The IM Affiliate Funnel is a cheap product, which costs $7.79, making it affordable for interested customers.

Inconsistent Pricing

However, the pricing of IM Affiliate Funnel seems to change with time. At some point in time, the price became $9.02, and then $8.99.

Kevin Fahey’s Scarcity Approach

Kevin Fahey creates the false impression there are only a very limited number of copies left. But each time I watch that same sales video on a different system, using a different IP, with a couple of hours in between, I find a new, limited number of copies left. For instance, the first time I watched the sales video, there was only one copy left. Then, on another occasion, there were only two copies left. Kevin employs this unethical means to pressure inexperienced seekers of online, affiliate marketing opportunities into buying his product.

Kevin Fahey’s 1st Training Video

Kevin skims through the lessons on his very first training video on how to pick a product to promote. He starts the training on a platform many newbie marketers would find unfamiliar, and gives no clue what that platform was or how to get to it by way of a provided URL. Most newbies would be stuck from the outset of Kevin’s tutorials.

Kevin Fahey’s eBooks

Kevin does have some quality content in his eBooks for his subscribers, I’ll give him that. However, he states on his sales page that his product is newbie-friendly. But, he didn’t compose the information in his eBooks with newbies in mind. When someone claims their Internet Marketing training product is newbie friendly, it only makes sense when they provide training from the perspective of zero assumed knowledge.

Unfortunately, Kevin assumes his newbie subscribers already have enough knowledge to be able to create a blog, create a YouTube channel, create a Facebook fan page etc. and connect all social media accounts to WordPress, autoresponders etc. Consequently, he doesn’t provide detailed information on how to go about any of these things.

No zero knowledge assumption for newbies

The PowerPoint Slides

Kevin Fahey’s PowerPoint slides didn’t open after I downloaded them. I  downloaded them twice to double-check, in case something went wrong with the first one. But each time I tried to gain access to the slides, I got an error message that simply popped up and read, “PowerPoint found a problem with content in IMAffiliatePerfectPromotionPresentation.pptx. PowerPoint can attempt to repair the presentation. If you trust the source of the presentation, click Repair.”

Then, I went ahead and clicked repair at the risk of my system’s sanity, just so I could get to the bottom of the matter, and here’s what I got – another error message that popped and read, “This file cannot be opened by using Microsoft PowerPoint. Do you want to search Office.com for a converter that can open the file?”

For the record, I use Microsoft Office suite 2010 (not very current but not completely out of date). On the other hand, Kevin Fahey prepared his slides using Microsoft Office 2007, which should have opened without any hiccups in a later version. So, what in the world, happened? Kevin should have known better than prepare his slides such that would give rise to problems for his subscribers.

The Email Swipes

One of Kevin’s email swipes, which he expects his followers to copy and paste, promises subscribers a follow-up webinar course, a promise newbies would not be able to deliver on if they used his email prototypes.

Worse still, Kevin wrote some of the emails with pretty bad grammar. This is particularly bad for a beginner marketer who is yet to gain the trust of their followers as an authority in a given niche. Psychologically, sloppy grammar comes across to subscribers as an indication of incompetence, and can easily be a turn off to subscribers whose confidence in a marketer’s mentoring and deliverability may be on shaky grounds, ruining the confidence of such subscribers.

IM Affiliate Funnel Bonus

One of Kevin Fahey’s IM Affiliate Funnel Bonuses turned out to be an upsell in disguise. You will be required to pay $1 to gain access to about 3,000 PLR products. After which you’ll be billed $14.95 at the end of every month until cancelation. When you click on the link that reads, “Need Bonus Products For Your Promotion? Access Over 3,300 High Quality PLR/MRR Product To Use As Bonuses” as shown on the image immediately following this paragraph below, it takes you to the next image with a link that reads, “CLICK HERE TO JOIN FOR $1 NOW”.

IM Affiliate Funnel Support

The IM Affiliate Funnel customer support simply sucks. I reached customer support about the identity of the aforementioned, unfamiliar platform Kevin Fahey started out his training video on. I almost instantly got an automated message, promising me a response within 24 to 48 hours. I waited out the time and  never heard from them again.

Final Rating: D for New Internet Marketers

IM Affiliate Funnel is not “newbie friendly”. Consequently, beginner affiliate marketers are very unlikely to make any money with it. The only reason I’m not rating it an ‘F’ is because it’s less than $10, and contains some fairly valuable information if you’re not a complete newbie.

hey dude isn’t the “Scarcity” approach used by lots of people though? I am pretty sure I have seen some of the gurus use that type of angle. there are WordPress plugins that can do that like the one that the guys at Market Samurai did with Scarcity Samurai or whatever it was called.
Love your work here by the way mate. I am learning lots from you and I am starting my own review site so hopefully I can pick up some good tips from you. promise not to plagiarise though!
Cheers

    Hey Shaun! It’s true, lots of people do it because it’s very effective. It’s just slightly deceptive – we’ve become desensitized to it but it’s been overused because it works so well. I don’t think it’s a huge negative by any means, but I think Eugenson (the writer of this review) was right to call attention to it.

      This was not the “Scarcity” approach Guys.
      Not Exactly – (But Sort Of – Kind Of I Guess.)
      It was a play on that using a
      “Dime Sale Formula” –
      That is why the price was constantly changing and the “Limited Copies” available thing.
      That was referring to copies for sale for the stated price.
      The price goes up with each copy – or a set number of copies sold.
      And some marketers use a timer – and price goes up after a certain amount of time goes by.
      Others set the page so each time you come back to the page the price rises higher.
      All the marketing gurus have several of these pricing tricks up their sleeves.
      I’m not selling IM Affiliate Funnel either.
      I don’t know any thing about it really.

      I’m not an affiliate of IM Affiliate Funnel or Kevin Fahey either.
      I am just a guy trying to learn marketing that has picked up a few things here and there.
      The price will continue to rise during the dime sale until it reaches the set top price.
      How long he will make it available for sale – only he knows.
      He can stop selling it any time he wants to I reckon.
      Either way – that is no excuse for the product not functioning when down loaded.
      And the lousy customer support – is something Mr. Fahey should look in to immediately.
      It is a sad fact –
      that both of these are not uncommon during a hurried up – rushed Product Launch.
      Unfortunately I have seen this happen multiple times on several launches – even “Big” Name Guru Launches. Yes they mess up as well.
      Really makes customers mad and some even request a refund right away.
      And you really can’t blame them.
      Just my 2 cents.

Kevin Fahey is just teaching the same crap that he is doing himself, charge overpriced courses to “teach” his students to make money online by teaching other people how to make money online, who then go on to “teach” more people how to make money online and on and on it goes…
