Super Sales Machine – A Marketing System For ‘Stone-Cold’ Newbies?
Super Sales Machine Overview
The Super Sales Machine is another all-in-one marketing system aimed at those with limited or no online marketing skills. The system claims you can make thousands of dollars with little effort in a short period of time. No website set up or management is required, everything is already prepared for you and training, traffic and everything else is provided.
The sales page isn’t clear about anything really. Where does the traffic come from? What products will you be promoting? Not even the price of the system is on the initial sales page, you have to trade your email address to find out how much the system initially costs. Overall, this system is very opaque and confusing at first glance.
The Super Sales Machine is sold through an affiliate network and offers a 50% commission on its many up-sells if you wish to promote the system itself. The initial price is very high considering there are 3 additional levels (up-sells) beyond the starting price of $97, plus the 3 additional levels of $97 each.
The Sales Page
The marketing material is laid out in the typical single page format starting with a short sales video of decent quality. The page really doesn’t say much about the actual program, how it works, or where the promised traffic comes from. The page selling the Super Sales Machine is largely testimonials. Much of the rest of the material is dedicated to convincing you how much work and skill affiliate marketing requires.
The sales page is confusing and opaque leaving out all the details of the system, what you’ll be selling and how. It’s only apparent purpose is to persuade that you lack the skills and knowledge to achieve online marketing without the system. As usual, it tries to convince its reader that their part in the deal is the easy part, pointing traffic at their ready-made web pages that convert like crazy.
The amount of space dedicated to just testimonials in the sales material is unusual. Because the page doesn’t present much useful information, the space used for testimonials makes some sense. Take out the testimonials, and the marketing material would be strangely short for this type of offer.
Easy To Use: You won’t need your own website or the skills to run and manage one. Everything is already set up for you in advance provided you buy into all the up-sells.
No Marketing Skills: You don’t need any online marketing skills to use the Super Sales Machine. It is supposedly designed for the ‘Stone-Cold’ Newbie.
You Only Have One Job: Your task in this is the easiest of all, just provide high quality, targeted traffic to their ready-made sales pages (uh huh <- insert sarcasm here).
Training Provided: You will be provided training to promote the ready-made sales pages. The training is largely generic and you could learn most of it for free elsewhere.
60 Day Guarantee: You have 60 days to ask for a refund, but nothing else is known about what is involved or if questions would be involved.
Lots Of Hype: The sales material is all unrealistic hype. Making thousands of dollars in a few days with any online venture is simply not possible. The sales page is mostly testimonials of unknown origin and material designed to convince its readers of the difficulty of affiliate marketing. The short initial sales video provides no real information about the system and seems designed to heighten hype only.
Up-Sells: This system is exactly why I hate this marketing tactic. After paying the ridiculous initial entry price of $97, you are immediately hit with no less that 3 additional up-sells, all $97 each to ‘upgrade’. There is a ‘smart setup’, ‘expert setup’ and ‘platinum setup’. So, you aren’t getting even close to what you thought right off the bat. There’s more up-sells as well, licenses to re-sell the system plus other memberships, including a recurring monthly fee to maintain your rights.
No Control: With programs like Super Sales Machine you have no control over the back-end or what is promoted. Putting your business in someone else’s hands completely like this is never a good idea. If the back-end is simply designed to sell, all the list members will just unsubscribe negating your hard work.
Building Their List: Any leads sent to their sales pages will go toward building their list, not yours. You won’t have control over the back-end marketing or what is sent to that list. It’s impossible to know if they are using this list for their own purposes, cutting you out or not.
Initial Cost: The entry cost of $97 is way too high for this type of system. The fact that it will cost you $388 to ‘upgrade’ to get the full benefit is ridiculous to put it kindly. It doesn’t end there, there are a number of additional up-sells you may have to buy to gain everything you need to have a chance of making anything with this system.
Questionable Ethics: In my opinion, ethics are in question because of the way the sales page is designed to confuse, is opaque in details about how the system works and what you will be promoting. You have to trade your email address to even find out how much it costs to get in, the sales page is silent about the initial cost. The up-sells that may be required to even make the system work is also suspect. The operator is obviously only interested in his own enrichment, not to help people learn to make money online.
Super Sales Machine Rating & Wrap Up
The Super Sales Machine is an over hyped, generic system that I do not recommend to anyone. The sales material is opaque and is designed to convince you that the skills necessary to market online are too difficult for you to learn. The large number of testimonials comes off as slightly desperate to convince you how wonderful the program is. The short sales video isn’t terribly convincing and only serves to heighten the hype, without providing any real information about the system itself.
You will be doing all the hardest work if you sign up for this program. Getting quality, targeted traffic is not easy, so don’t let anyone try to convince you otherwise.
Getting in at $97 is too expensive, not to mention the up-sells, at a whopping, additional $388 to gain the full benefit of the program is nothing short of ludicrous.
This type of system isn’t likely to earn you much online if anything at all. Too many opportunity seekers are on to this type of system and won’t spend their money on its sales methods. Stay away from the Super Sales Machine, there are much better ways to earn honest money online, don’t let sales materials like this convince you it’s not possible, because it is.
