What’s Up Ya Internet Marketing Fanatics!
It’s Danyon Togia back in the hiz-house, and today I’ll be going through Rapid Traffic Masterclass by Stefan Ciancio. Stefan has made some pretty bold claims on his sales page – he says that this product can help you bank an easy $1800/mo passive income PER site you set up with his method. He also claims that there’s no limit to how many sites you want to setup, and they’re extremely easy to install and run on autopilot. He says this is a complete step-by-step system that will work even if you have no experience with computers, the internet, or any of the technological jazz.
Let’s see if Stefan can deliver a high-quality product to go along with those outrageous sales claims of his.
Oh – Just so you’re aware… Stopping Scams isn’t an affiliate for Rapid Traffic Masterclass or Stefan Ciancio. We dedicate this site to providing you with informative and entertaining reviews. Informative in the sense that we educate you on the good and the bad internet marketing products that exist on the internet (most of them are terrible), and entertaining in the sense that hopefully my writing style isn’t so dull that you feel as if though you’re watching paint dry.
If you don’t have time to stick around and read the whole review, here’s the lowdown on Stefan Ciancio’s internet marketing product:
Yes, the training in Rapid Traffic Masterclass is step-by-step, and Stefan gives you an over-the-shoulder look at his strategy for making money online using Pinterest as it’s primary traffic generator. However, the strategy definitely isn’t something that’s going to have you making stacks of money in a short amount of time in a passive manner as the sales page says so. The strategy is based on building a following on Pinterest, then taking your followers back to your blog in hopes that you get some Google Adsense dollars, which is a relatively unreliable way to monetize your website because you’ll need lots of website views to make money. For these reasons…
Your time and money are better invested elsewhere.
There were two products on offer after the purchase of Rapid Traffic Masterclass; these products included a list of case studies and also a DFY package. Cheeky little Stefan tried to down sell both of these products, which I promptly skipped past so I could just access the damn training material of Rapid Traffic Masterclass.
Upon accessing the product, I was taken to the Rapid Traffic Masterclass membership site that looks a lil’ something like this.
I jumped into the training, and there was one positive thing about Rapid Traffic Masterclass concerning its video training…
Usually, with crappy internet marketing products, they skimp out on the quality of the video training; either they make it too short, or they make crappy quality videos with a bunch of slides and an annoying computer fan humming away in the background.
Fortunately, Stefan Ciancio went the extra mile with his video training and provided a pretty extensive training course, with an over-the-shoulder type feel so that you can get a deeper understanding of the process and, most importantly, the specifics of it. The majority of the training videos are organized in the following format:
For example, here are a few screenshots from the Niche Selection part of the video guide.
He talks over the top of the video, explaining how to find a profitable niche and all that jazz. Apparently, recipes and women’s fashion are huge on Pinterest.
However, even though the training guide is extensive and well-organized, there’s one reason in particular that I wouldn’t recommend the Rapid Traffic Masterclass to you…
Stefan has made it clear on his sales page that this way of making money online is extremely easy, autopilot, and requires no experience for you to be raking in some solid cash. Check out the following screenshots for some of the sales claims made.
He’s giving the impression that your Average Joe that’s completely new to internet marketing can take this system and all of a sudden become and internet marketing success story.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
The way of making money that Stefan advocates is through Ad Revenue, and I’m not sure if you’re aware of this or not, but Ad Revenue requires views for you to make money and lots of it. There are much more reliable ways of making money through the internet that doesn’t require as much traffic – Ad Revenue can be useful, but in my opinion, it’s not the most optimal way to make money, ESPECIALLY for a complete internet marketing newbie.
Not only that, but the way that Stefan says to build a following is pretty unreliable too. He does the ol’ “follow-for-follow” method, which is a low-quality way of building a gathering. I’ve learned from entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk that it’s not just the quantity of the fan that matters, it’s the quality too. It’s better to have 2000 fans with 1000 highly loyal, engaged fans that are eager to devour your content, compared to a 10,000 fanbase with only 500 loyal fans that are waiting around for you to post something.
He does advocate connecting with bigger groups so you can leverage their fanbase too, which is an efficient way to jumpstart your business and hopefully get some followers from the get-go. However, you have to take into account the fact that you have to ACTUALLY be providing value to these bigger groups and helping them in a particular way; if they get the feeling that you’re just there to try and help yourself, they’ll have no problem with just rejecting you.
I mean, the product wasn’t TERRIBLE; the video training was extensive and provided an over-the-shoulder look so that you’re not feeling left out and you gain a deeper understanding of the concepts. Plus, it only costs roughly 15 buckaroos. With that being said, there are many more products out there on the ol’ Interwebz which provide more value, more teaching, better video content, and just an overall better product that will help you become and internet marketing success. For these reasons, I don’t recommend Rapid Traffic Academy, and I’ll rate it a solid C.
