Deadbeat Super Affiliate, report on this program

Loes Knetsch ©

I am a bit wary of a name like this right off the bat so I went into looking at this program in a negative state of mind from the get-go. I was not disappointed in being disappointed.

Deadbeat Super Affiliate,

My report on this program

Name: Deadbeat Super Affiliate
Website: Deadbeatsuperaffiliate.com
Price: $17 – $49 – $97 – $144
Owners: Dan Brock
Overall Rank: 4 0ut of 10

First off I discovered Dan Brock has been around quite a while and his track record is not one to be bragged about, according to many negative reviews of his programs. One that stands out, in particular, was a program called Profit Zone that he was working back in 2010. This program was an Amazon affiliate niche site program, and it was a hard program to make money on without using blackhat marketing.

This new program does have similarities with the earlier one in that he is again promoting black hat marketing and that is a major no-no to us who take honest hard work marketing seriously.

I took a good look at Deadbeat Super Affiliate and I have to warn you about this program. In other words, be alert.

The Program

The program itself is actually set up pretty good as far as building your website and getting it all SEO’ed properly. They have a grouping of lessons that walk you through this process and that in itself is alright. The program has two upsells which really are reasonable if the program stuck to honest marketing, but that is one of the catches. Several other upsells are offered that are black hat in nature and of course, Dan is selling them as an affiliate. Personally, I don’t like it when people take you in with a small amount to pay, then to discover that you need more information and that you have to pay more, and more.

As you go through the lessons it soon becomes evident that he wants you to promote this website using many questionable practices, some involving these other upsell programs he is also selling instead of by ranking well using organic traffic and building site trust, and advertising which is the proper way to do this. E.g. One video has instructions to “do something carefully so you don’t get caught”. That’s not my way of doing business.

(Black hat means “Things that are looked down upon by the marketers. Marketers who do things the legal way and who avoid things that are not complete ethical”)

See the dictionaries definition of Black Hat

[ See Where I learned how to do this the right way ]


I was expecting this to happen just from listening to all of his promises of earning huge amount of dollars in a set amount of time in the promotional video.

Anyone with any experience in affiliate marketing can tell you, profit numbers cannot be promised in set amounts of time, and as soon as one see’s these kinds of claims that is the first sign to start to back away.

It proved to be the case here with this program.

The opening video I first watched promoting this program stated I could sleep my way to affiliate sales. I know how much work a productive affiliate website takes as I have several working as we speak and I would be happy to have you take a look at how I built them if you wish, [click here to visit one of my Dutch websites] and trust me sleeping was not a part of them whatsoever.

On the contrary, if anything, it was a lack of sleep that got them where they are today.

Black Hat Tactics

The next thing that got me really going was this man was wanting me to be buying links and building link pyramids and the likes, all tactics that will get a site banned from Google and also what I call cheater tactics.

I never buy links from any place and I do not build link trees that are looked upon as bad SEO. I believe in doing it the right way and my websites will be around for years and years while I would be willing to go out on a limb and say most if not all of these types of sites they are promoting will be banned and gone within a year.

Google is addressing this kind of “Backlinking” practices in their current update called “Penguin”. Where websites with an enormous amount of backlinks, which are totally not niche related, get sandboxed.

This video also claimed he made over 12K in the first month and again, as an experienced affiliate marketer I know that is a complete fantasy number unless he is not explaining a part of this program he is using. It just does not add up. I do believe this program does earn this amount of money for him, but not the tactics of this program.

Summary

When someone promises you the world and you can have it without any hard work you must ask yourself why.

In the world of marketing pretty much everyone has a reason for offering you something and 8 out of 10 times that something is not worth the time or the energy for you to waste on it.

The other two times the deals offered are really good programs that work and they are out there and available to everyone right now but finding them can be a real challenge.

This program, Deadbeat Super Affiliate offered me a set amount of profits in the first month, and upsell after upsell, however, I do believe there are people making real money with this program.

The training program of Deadbeat Super Affiliate looks genuine and I am pretty sure that Dan has the intention to help you but:

  • Dan makes this sound far too easy.
  • The upsells are a dishonest way to try to squeeze more money from people.

I can not say that Deadbeat Super Affiliate is a scam, but some tactics are on the edge of honesty, and for this reason alone, I give this program my thumb down.

    Hi there Loes

    Yes, Dan Brock, The Lazy Marketer. – It’s an attactive proposition – stay in your sleeping clothes and don’t really ‘work’ and everything will come to you – a lazy version of ‘Build it and they will come’.

    Yes, things come to Mr. Brock easily because he has a large email list and his videos / sales messages are very alluring.

    Well, there’s another program I can remove from my Christmas list – thank you for your warning.

    • Loes says:

      Dan’s videos to explain how to are not bad, only the optimistic “earn while you are asleep” is not quite the way it works, Dom. At the moment, the lucky ones are the people who bought a couple of hundred bitcoins in the starting period, they actually got rich sleeping:))

    Hi Granma Loes,

    I heard a lot of negative review about Wealthy Affiliate!!!!! And have you tried or purchased Deadbeat Super Affiliate before? How did you come up with a review?

    Just wondering! You don’t want to be a hypocrite right! Putting down some product without owning it first then promote your own affiliate product.

      Hey Rico, you know, Google is always so kind to warn us for safe and unsafe websites with a red X or a green V

    Hi Loes,

    This message is written in response to 1900 dated September 12, 2016.
    My understanding of a legitimate Online Business has to be ethical; doing it with morality and always be on the right track.

    Any Programs that promise easy and quick success by means of unethical tactic will only bring itself and members to their downfall. Promoting black hat marketing is definitely a NO NO and could be penalised by Google.

    By the way, my dear 1900, I am 61 years old this year. And if you are reading this, I couldn’t care if you called me Great Old Grandma as well.

    Sincerely,
    Sadie Chan.

    • Loes says:

      Hello Sadie, how nice of you to speak up for me 🙂 Unfortunately, there are a lot of unscrupulous, greedy, money out of the pocket stealing marketers online. I hope to protect people, from falling for programs with up-sells. Up-sells can grow easily into hundreds, even thousands of dollars and leave you behind with nothing. Thanks for your reply Sadie, you are a real friend! Have a great day! We both know which company is giving the best opportunities to succeed online. Loes

    Oh! Old woman! Just because he can be your son? You don’t like his aggressive, passive or perhaps lazy training?
    so I will repeat myself: Oh! Old woman! Just because he can be your son? You don’t like his aggressive, passive or perhaps lazy training? NOTE: I hope my email address will not be published or scam alerts hitting my inbox.

    • Loes says:

      Good day to you too, 1900, I will not expose your email address, as your reaction says enough to my readers. You are replying anonymously, something I didn’t teach my sons. I taught them always to be straight forward and stand right behind their opinion, no sneaky allegations ever! And to be true, I don’t like sneaky upsells, that’s quite right.

  5. Your Website Availability says:

    Hey there. I just read your page here and wanted to put in my two cents worth.

    I myself fell for the Dan Brock scheme some years ago and it woke me up to the problems which can be found for people looking to make an income online.

    I have also read about Wealthy Affiliate in the past but I am still scared to take the plunge.

    Can I ask if it works? Seriously I mean? and what does it offer that the other so called Affiliate programs do not?

    Thanks

    Chris

    • Loes says:

      Hi Chris, I understand you are rather sceptical having your Dan Brock experience. Wealthy Affiliate is not what you think it is. It is an open education resource, where you can learn all about affiliate marketing.

      An Affiliate program gives you the opportunity to earn by promoting their products.

      Wealthy Affiliate learns you HOW to promote and review products in the right way. HOW to fill in keywords, so Google searches will find your website. And HOW to fill in all significant info and HOW to use social media to become successful online.

      When you are completely new in this business, it’s a sensible step to follow an education.

      And to answer your second question, in every class, there are Top students, average students and dropouts. The training at Wealthy Affiliate has proved everyone can succeed, but not everyone will.

      Hope this answers your questions, Chris. Perhaps we will meet on the premises of Wealthy Affiliate:)

      Kind Regards, Loes

    Hi its Alexey.
    I enjoyed reading your review. It was such a wonderful review on such a big fat scam. You put all the information in an easy way and I even learned how to write better review 😉
    The Deadbit Super Affiliate indeed uses poor techniques that will only harm your site.
    WA provides a wonderful training courses on how to do it right!!

  7. RuthM says:

    This is an interesting review. I have seen loads of sites out there which talk about how you can money in 2 weeks etc. I like that you identify this as a trademark of a scam, it will make it easier for me to look out for them in the future.

    I certainly won’t be going anywhere near this program and I will have a look at a few others of your scams

    Thank you!

    • Loes says:

      Hi Ruth, you really have to be careful by entering some programs on internet, there are a lot of up-sells involved, and making quick money on the internet is a fairytail, otherwise we all would be filty rich by now, enjoy the next reads on my website, see you around, Loes

  8. Tasos Perte Tzortzis says:

    Hello Loes , another funny product?…But who is this guy posing in a robe at that video?..This is how they promote their work?

    Black hat , link farms and the rest.Build a website in minutes , get it ranked at the top of google in hours , then money and subscribers roll in like a miracle.

    Then we would not have to work anymore.We are sick of all these empty marketing offers , we need some quality instead.

    Nice breakdown , you nailed them.Honest review.

    • Loes says:

      Thanks Tasos, I reckon, when all those spammy advertisers are telling the truth, all my neighbors where driving a Ferrari right now 😉 Let’s enjoy the sun today, she shines for free!

      Have a nice day Tasos

  9. Cathy says:

    Hi Loes,

    Your article had me going over to Deadbeat Super Affiliate website to find out more. Wow, it is one of the longest squeeze page that I have seen and I can see how people are easily attracted to his offer – stay lazy and still earn money. Who doesn’t want that right?

    As you pointed out, the only way to make that work is to use short cuts with Black Hat tactics. For anyone who’s thinking of following this technique, good luck trying to convince Google that you are running a legitimate site.

    You can continue to be lazy, but it’s going to be tougher to earn money online that way as long as Google keep improving on their search algorithm against black hats.

    • Loes says:

      Hi Cathy, glad you didn’t fall for the quick-online-money scam. They really have sweet talk and claim an easyness which can’t be true. If it was that easy to earn money online, a whole lot more people would be the living prove. Loes

  10. Sylvia says:

    Hi Loes,

    Thank you so much for your eye opening review on deadbeat super affiliate.

    I never knew about it and probably I also would never fallen for it either, when something sounds to good to be true than it probably isn’t worth it to go there.

    I enjoyed the video too, since it really shows me how they have set up their website. I only shook my head reading and seeing all the information.

    I was burnt twice before ending up with Wealthy Affiliate, and this is where I stay.

    Yes, I do agree with you also that working your online business is a hard job and it can give you some sleepless hours, but this is only because you have so many ideas what to do next etc. 🙂

    Thanks again Loes for this fantastic review and of course for the warning. Another affiliate program on my black list for sure.

    Sylvia

    • Loes says:

      Hi Sylvia, glad you liked my review, and the video too! Marcus is making terrific ones! I enjoy every minute of my online working hours. And it’s starting to pay off good as well! Wealthy Affiliate just has opened doors for me, you can’t imagine:) I am very greatful for finding this opportunity! Loes
