One Minute Commissions – Honest Review & Demo

I wasn’t planning on doing this today, but I got sucked into a VERY compelling sales video… and the rest is history ๐Ÿ˜‰

I don’t blame anyone for creating a persuasive video. I make them for my products, and I teach others to do the same. The problem is when they’re misleading (or if they’re so ambiguous that you can’t figure out what the product’s really about).

The product I am reviewing today is called One Minute Commissions, by Mike Auton. The name on the product is Rebecca Roberts, but from what I understand from the JV invitations I’ve seen, that’s basically a pen name for the actress/spokeswoman.

The product pitch made some very bold income claims, but what appealed to me the most was its apparent ease of use. It sounded exactly like the type of product that would be useful to many of my subscribers. So I went ahead and bought it for $46.00 so I could review it.

The payment processor is ClickSure, and it was my first time encountering them. It appears that they are attempting to compete with ClickBank, so I went ahead and signed up for an affiliate account too; perhaps I can report more about them later. It seems they are UK-based, and just entering the business. My credit card company called me within one minute of placing my order, to ask if it was fraudulent.

After ordering, I was taken into the upsell flow (aka One Time Offer), which is to be expected. Again, I have no problem with upsells. I do them myself, and I teach it as an effective marketing strategy. One of my recent launches contained the most aggressive upsell flow I’ve ever attempted, with multiple upsells, and it worked very well.

One Minute Commissions had a total of 5 upsell/downsell pages. My only problem with them was that the “No Thanks” link was hidden for a period of time to force you to watch part of the video on 3 of the pages. Other than that, the upsells seemed pretty typical and they did seem to be fitting with the main product (upsale for “Pro” version, etc.). I did not purchase any of the upsells.

The members area is well laid out, and easy to navigate. No problems there.

The training videos were very basic, but adequate. I had some problems playing the MP4 videos in my browser, so if you do purchase the product, I’d recommend doing a right-click and downloading the videos rather than streaming them in your browser.

The software itself (web based) is simple to use. It takes only a few minutes to employ the method, and I did not encounter any real problems while using it.

Here is a demo of me actually using this product (allow a moment for the video to load):

The software generates videos to promote ClickBank products (or Amazon products using their bonus software).

Those videos are then to be uploaded to YouTube, and traffic is to be obtained from organic Google results.

In theory, it’s a good idea. YouTube videos CAN be a great way to obtain Google rankings.

Unfortunately, the videos generated by this software are very spammy. They’re about 20 seconds long, and consist of one static image, with a random bit of background music.

This provides absolutely ZERO value to the end user, which means users of this software are basically spamming YouTube with these videos, and thus spamming Google with useless search results.

I’d be willing to bet that YouTube/Google will crack down on this practice, thus ensuring that it’s not a good long term strategy.

Therefore I do not recommend this product.

Here’s the good news…

With just a LITTLE more effort, you can use this strategy in an ethical and effective manner. Instead of using this auto-generator software, just get yourself some screen capture software (I recommend Camtasia, but there are free options like Camstudio).

Then for each product you want to promote, create a short review or commentary while you peruse the product and/or sales letter for that product. This way you’re actually providing something of value to the people who are searching for those products.

As always, you are welcome to leave your comments below.

Have a great day!

    Thanks Eric for doing the review i wasn’t gonna buy it as i no longer buy from blind sales pitches.What’s really scary is when products like this are promoted by people you normally think are genuine.It’s a reminder that IM is all about the money,who to trust?.My advise to anybody out there is ,if they don’t show you,can’t tell you and can’t explain it properly DO NOT BUY IT.There are very few Eric’s around to hold your hand.

    I was so tempted to buy this software, until I saw your review. That was a really cheesy video that got created. I understand that the software costs $46, but all the way through all the videos, the presenters kept saying “no investment” and “free”. I find that in itself misleading. Again, thanks for the review. Very refreshing!

    7/18 I sent the following to you, Paul Counts, and Jeff Wellman re NCIS which I purchase on 7/12/12, ref # 3035/4YL2FEZP:

    PLEASE CANCEL MY RELATIONSHIP WITH NCIS. I WILL RETURN ALL INFORMATION GIVEN INSTRUCTIONS. WHEN I TRIED TO DOWNLOAD INFORMATION, I DID NOT RECEIVE ALL THE ITEMS PER THE LIST. I FOUND ALL VERY CONFUSING AND DIFFICULT TO WORK WITH. THERE DIDN’T SEEM TO BE ANY ORDER AND WHEN I PULLED UP 1-3, I GOT FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS THAT CONFUSED ME. I GUESS THAT I AM NOT MENT TO USE YOUR SYSTEM. CLIFFORD MITTS. (order # 4YL2FEZ9)
    Please have one of you to acknowledge,Thanks, Cliff

    I bought this product and the upgrade. My own fault… Anyways it wouldn’t be a complete loss if the quadlink software and the pinger software would actually work.

    What problem I am having is it states:

    Cannot create temporary email, please try again.

    Does anyone know how to get that working? I’ve contacted the support if you can call them that. They never replied to me, any help would be greatly appreciated. At least then I can get some value out of the money I spent.

    Hi
    I am really pleased to see someone really going through the process of buying the product and reviewing it for their subscribers..
    Thank you for the Honest review eric..
    I too feel like you.. being honest and review the products for my subscribers/visitors But unfortunately I have got no money to actually buy all the products and review them..
    So what would be your suggestion to make Honest reviews without actually buying them(cannot afford to buy all the products right….?

    Hello Prasanth,

    Sometimes, vendors provide affiliates with review access to a product. Typically, that access may only last a week, or some other short period of time.

    Eric, been a subscriber for quite a while.
    Wondering if you are looking for a JV opportunity for another income stream. Let me
    know, and I can send you more information, and
    you can decide for yourself. Thanks.

    Eric,

    I purchased No Cost Income stream on 7/4/2012. After evaluating the product, I found that it is not for me at this time even the product was great. Per your 60 day money back guarrantee policy, I would like to ask you to refund 100% ($37) to my Discover Card ending in -6448.

    Thank you,

    Cindy,
    I ordered the product and was first REALLY annoyed with the endless upsells at high prices, now said to be necessary to get the result, when the sales hype promised the results with only the initially offered software. However, I thought Iยดd give it a chance, so I bought two of the upsells, losing a lot of time for no good reason. When the product arrived and I realized that it had NOTHING to do with the promises made in the video,would require weeks of work and studies to set up – and not one minute to set up for automated profits as emphatically promised! – and to boot the training was so basic and time-consuming I did not learn anything new and was just losing my time, I asked for a refund. I was told how, so there was no problem there. ClickSure responded immediately that they had refunded my three payments on August 11th, but as of writing this, four weeks later, I still have received no refund. I have complained at least four times and they have replied, but only with evasive mails ignoring my request for PROOF of crediting my card. They say I have to complain with my bank, but if they have made an error in sending the money, there is no way my bank can find it without having the data of their transfer order. To me this smells of fraud, from the initial sales video to the non-refund I am experiencing.

    Nice review! Clicksure does not include the program you’ve bought in receipt documentation.
    FYI the first $ I’ve made online was creating my own review for a product and loading it onto YouTube. I might continue with green products and see how long, and if or course, they profit. Properly seo’d it zips right up top.
    HOWEVER I still love your tips, invaluable.

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Your honesty and integrity are so refreshing. Warnings like this would save multitudes of newbies’ hard earned cash, but where are the other voices in this IM wilderness?

    On another subject, I’d like you to check out OurChickenHouse.com, some good info there for chicken newbies.

    Thanks Eric, I was tempted. She kept saying at NO COST at NO COST to you and then at the end you have to pay $49? I am so tired of programs like this, just want to find something that works for a change!

    I got taken in too. i pay $43 and the program was sh***y and you are right they suck you in with that one time fee only!I know better then that (I thought) I’ve always believed if it’s too good to be true it usually is.But i am out of a job and i’m tired of working for people that do not appreciate your talents and effort to getting the job done!I wanted to be my own boss but i guess my dad was right the only way to the top is by working hard and saving what ever you can.There i s no such thing as easy money and as usual he was right.

    Thanks for the review. Often, it is hard to find an honest review of a product because most of the time they are just sales pitches disguised as reviews. I know now I will not be purchasing one minute commissions and will explore the alternative methods you’ve suggested.

    Thanks for pointing out the product. We are unfamiliar with Income Elite.

    If Eric feels that it would benefit his readers at this stage, he’ll be sure to do a review.

    Everytime I watch one of these “its so easy” video’s I want so badly to hope that it’s real. Then I think about how it is others like myself who don’t have a credit card or the extra cash to throw at yet another scam. Thank you for providing this forum.

    ClickSure is a rip off! They pulled the same on me as on Jens above. Played me along for weeks with assurances that my refund had been processed and pleas for patience and so on for 60 days, then their call center suggested to file a dispute with my bank. But after 60 days from your initial complaint the banks can not file a dispute anymore! CLICKSURE IS CROOKED!

    Hi All
    I bought this product at the weekend, seemed nice and simple for a newbey like me. Totally cheesed off. I thought there must be a problem with the video maker or my system.. Nice to know its not me and its their system. Also had to download the training Vids. NOT good answers take days and not satisfactory. Please all dont waste your money.. I am now asking for a refund. Product over sold under delivers I have been done before but this is the worst.. All I need is something to give me an extra income. I am giving up with all these waste of money on line jobs. None work.
