Profit With Alex Overview
The Profit With Alex system has to do with made for you e-commerce sites that can be created by anyone in just 5 minutes. Using eBay and Amazon affiliate accounts, the system supposedly creates e-commerce sites that get huge amounts of traffic from willing buyers quickly. The system is cheap because the operator, somehow, earns a small commission from each of your sales.
It appears, on the surface, Profit With Alex is an all in one turnkey e-commerce business that requires almost no effort on your part. The software, hosted on a web page, helps you select in demand product from eBay and Amazon with low competition. All you have to do is pick a product and follow the easy 5 steps to instantly create a website that will somehow generate large amounts of traffic to itself. How this traffic is generated is never explained.
The program is run through an affiliate network and offers a 75% commission if you wish to resell the system itself. The initial price for this system is suspiciously low. The sales video claims the software itself is free, the $37 front-end fee is to cover hosting costs. But, if you consider the 75% commission paid to re-sellers, the fee couldn’t possibly cover hosting for a week let alone a lifetime.
The Sales Page
The sales page consists of just the sales video followed by an attempt to capture email addresses prior to going to the checkout page. The video wasn’t convincing to me, it starts with legitimate news casts talking about making money from home, but none directly reference the system itself. These are just edited clips likely discussing real opportunities, not Profit With Alex, this attempt at legitimacy is thin and deceptive.
The rest of the video demonstrates the software in action. One thing I noticed, in the SEO step is the selection of keywords to be targeted. All were very high competition and the pages generated were very unlikely to rank in the first 10 pages let alone the first page of Google or any search engine. The description used for the new site was short and unlikely to satisfy the search engines. Also, the website generated was very generic, contained no content aside from the products themselves and some reviews from Amazon.
This cookie-cutter approach will never rank high in any search engine even if long tail keywords were employed. The pages are almost sure to be pegged as duplicate content. No free traffic could ever be generated, at least with search engines, for the pages created by the software. The sales material is deceptive and reveals a system that may have worked 10 years ago but is sure to fail today.
I discovered an oddity with the sales page. If you look at the domain with no trailing directory, profitwithalex.net/, here is what you get:
Now if you back up, the system is no longer sold out! You get a completely different page and video with a recap of some of the first video showing how easy the system is to use. A miracle, more spots opened up! This type of deception is a big red flag and should be a clue that Profit With Alex isn’t likely a good or honest product.
Easy To Use: The system is step by step and easy to use. It finds products through eBay and Amazon and creates a generic page people can use to purchase through your affiliate accounts. Aside from the product, the software also pulls product reviews by users from Amazon and eBay.
Inexpensive: At only $37 for hosting, how can you go wrong?
60 day Guarantee: You get 60 days to request a refund. Nothing else is known about refunds or what might be involved.
Obsolete System: Profit With Alex may have worked 10 years ago but certainly won’t work at all these days. There is a good chance Amazon and eBay will terminate your accounts if they see the pages this system generates.
Cookie-Cutter Pages: The pages the system creates are generic and contain little content aside from the products themselves and user reviews from the respective site. I seriously doubt they will convert at all. No one is going to purchase anything from such a generic presentation of anything.
Flawed SEO: The keywords selected in the video were very high competition and the generic page generated won’t rank where anyone will ever see them. Even with paid traffic, these pages aren’t going to convince anyone to purchase through them. The supposed ‘Traffic Accelerator’ was presented as a magic button, no explanation of how it generates massive amounts of traffic was ever offered.
Deceptive Sales Tactics: When you try to leave the page you get popups, and other attempts to get back your attention. The sales video itself comes across as scamy and presents a lot of half-truths about how easy it is to get rich with no effort. The news clips in the beginning of the video are a thin attempt to gain credibility, as if the mainstream media is talking about Profits With Alex, but they are just generic and no product is actually mentioned.
Operator’s Commission: The sales material claims the Profit With Alex software is free. They get a small commission from each of your sales. But how? Does Amazon and eBay pay this commission from your affiliate account? If not, then who? This is another deception that leads me to believe even more deception is at play I probably missed.
Magic Button Traffic: As mentioned previously, the ‘Traffic Accelerator’ is presented as a magic traffic producing button. This one step traffic system needed no explanation and none was offered. As a matter of fact, the video even tells you not to worry about how it works. I sure wish there was such a thing, I could get rich on that alone! Sorry folks, this is a blatant lie.
No Control: Aside from selecting a niche and creating the one size fits all pages, you have no control over anything about this system. There are serious downsides to a system that has complete control over your business especially if that system is this flawed.
Rating & Wrap Up
I do not recommend Profit With Alex as a viable alternative to real affiliate marketing. The deceptive sales tactics are pretty obvious to the trained eye and the structure of the entire system is deeply flawed. The cookie-cutter approach not only won’t attract traffic from search engines, it is likely to get your affiliate accounts terminated.
The sales material is exaggerated in both income and ease of the system. The generic pages generated will have a very low conversion rate even if you manage to get anyone to see them.
The SEO demonstrated in the video is useless, the keywords selected were very high in competition and getting even really good content to rank under them would be difficult.
The sales tactics used for the system demonstrates to me the product and it’s creators are dishonest and simply out to make a buck, not really to help anyone else make money. I would stay away from Profits With Alex and find something that has a chance of actually working. There are much better ways to do affiliate marketing.
