We’ve already reviewed Traffic Broker here at StoppingScams.com. You might have seen it already. However we received a comment from Bomac saying we focused too much on the sales page and not enough on the product itself.
Well you know what Bomac!? We agree!
Today we’ll be going over Traffic Brokers again. I’ll skip over how bad the sales page is this time (if you want to find that out then check out the other review) and focus on what’s in the members’ area.
Traffic Brokers round 2. Let’s dig in!
Traffic Brokers is a course created by Jeff Walker and for a monthly recurring fee of $49.95 you’ll get 16 lessons. Oh yeah, you’re paying for a forum which is extremely out of date.
What you’ll be doing is registering for CPA adverts where you’ll earn money every time someone clicks on the ad. This could range from a few cents to a few dollars. You’ll then be placing ads on your own website which you’re told to create and asking other web owners to place them on their websites.
The training is pretty poor. The earning potential is pretty low.
Jeff claims he’s making over $100k per month. This isn’t going to happen if he’s using the same methods he is teaching in this course.
Bomac said we didn’t review Traffic Brokers very well the last time. Well now we shall…
In the other review I showed you the first two things you’re asked to sign up for. A web hosting package for a website you’ll be placing ads on and a surveys company:
Don’t bother registering with who Jeff is promoting. The hosting package is extremely poor and is the same company all the other scammers seem to recommend. Use a reputable company like Namecheap for your domain name and Hostgator or BlueHost to host your website. You’ll get a lot for your money with these and have no issues when it comes to cancelling or swapping in the future.
To be clear: There’s absolutely NO reason to pay the exorbitant prices for the hosting packages Jeff Walker recommends. The only reason he recommend such high priced hosting is because it earns him a larger commission – it’s not better for you in any way, shape, or form.
Now for the training:
As you can see in the image above there’s 16 training modules and a couple of extra sections. The training is extremely poor because it’s very out of date. Almost 4 years out of date. This is an extremely long time as things are constantly changing in the online world.
The course was created in 2012, however the last “news & updates” for the program was in May 2013:
Google has changed their algorithms more in the last 18 months than they have in the previous 5 years combined. Keeping training materials up to date in this industry is critical if Jeff wants his students (that’s you) to be successful.
Inside each training module you’ll find a lot of content. Jeff really did put some work into this course when he originally created it, which is great. You’ll find long posts as well as a video or two for each topic:
I’m genuinely impressed with the amount of content here. I don’t like the format (I just hate forums – but that’s personal) but the content is good. However – Look at the date this specific module was created. August 2010! This module is almost 5 years old. The training is so out of date that two of the sites Jeff recommends to use for conducting research no longer exist.
This is why I gave this a bad review last time. The content is completely useless now.
I could really smack Jeff right now. I HATE traffic software and anyone who promotes them needs a chair to the face.
This is how Jeff recommends you get traffic. Well one method that he focuses heavily on.
We’ve reviewed a couple different pieces of software for traffic generation and they’re all crap. You won’t receive any targeted visitors that will click on the ads you’ve placed on your site. You’ll just see a higher visitor count and an extremely high bounce rate in your analytics (That’s if you set it up. Jeff’s training doesn’t even cover that).
Everyone should steer clear of traffic generation software. Steer clear!
I saw something very interesting in a recent thread in the forums. Someone pointed out that they haven’t seen any success stories:
This is a great point. I scoured the forums and couldn’t see any success stories since late 2013.
The reply given by the customer services rep for Traffic Brokers’ just say “there are successful members” but doesn’t point out who they are or the thread for proof. Like I’ve mentioned previously, Traffic Brokers is so out of date you’re not going to find any successful members.
I do however need to point out that this Christina woman who’s the customer service rep is very active. It’s good to see there’s someone in there helping people who’re still signing up:
This is the only good thing I could say about Traffic Brokers.
I stand by the previous rating I gave Traffic Brokers. This course is complete crap for anyone who wants to make more than a few cents per month. Placing CPA ads on your website with no training to get legitimate traffic to your website will not earn you any money. Jeff teaches members to pay for traffic software, which won’t get you any clicks on these ads or make you any money. Then you’re instructed to ask other site owners to place these ads on their websites.
This isn’t a business but more like begging and praying for scraps.
There’s a much better way to make a living online. Our 100% free internet marketing training contains up-to-date training that’ll show you better methods of making money online. Not earning a few cents from CPA ads.
Here’s how our free training courses compare to Traffic Brokers:
I hope this is what you’re after Bomac (the commenter that called our attention to shortcomings of the old review). Jeff needs to take the Traffic Brokers course out to the pastures and put it out of it’s misery. He’ll be doing everyone a favour. More importantly, he won’t be scamming anyone out of $49.95 per month anymore.
Have you signed up for Traffic Brokers and have a success story to share? Or did you find it just as useless as I said in this review and the previous one? Leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below. I’d love to hear from you!
