Product Name : Super Affiliate System
Product Type: Affiliate Marketing
Type Scam: Internet Marketing
Recently I’ve found my Facebook feed clogged up with ads for John Crestani’s Super Affiliate System, the guy is making an absolutely killing, and I recently read about him in Forbes http://www.forbes.com/sites/under30network/2016/07/20/how-a-28-year-old-got-fired-then-built-a-500k-a-month-business-while-traveling-the-world/#23bb803d7b16
It’s a great story about how he created a successful business selling health products, and now he’s helping people do the same.
He has some astonishing numbers, as much as $500k a month are the claims on Forbes.com and I think all of us would like a piece of that pie.
But can you really be as successful as John? Or is John Crestani a scam merchant looking to bleed you dry selling really shitty information online?
The simple fact, is that affiliate marketing can be an absolute game changer for people. If you find the right niche, you can make an absolute killing, and unlike a physical business you don’t have to deal with customers or clients, you can be open 24/7 without having to sacrifice your sleep, and you genuinely live anywhere in the world that has an internet connection to run your business.
I can relate that, for many years I ran a recruitment agency, and I was working 80 hour weeks for £80k a year, I had a brief stint between 2007 and 2009 as an affiliate marketer predominately advertising on google adwords, and I was soon working with a team of people pulling in £80k a month, my entire years salary in a single month on autopilot.
But soon the market I was in become saturated, and it no longer become profitable. In fact it sent me on a downward spiral that resulted in bankruptcy in 2010, hold on to that line until later in my Review of John Crestani, as his model doesn’t make sense to me.
Anyway I take claims of wealth and pictures of guys in Lamborghinis with a big fuck off pinch of salt.
To me John Crestani is making claims he cannot deliver on, and whilst I believe that he himself is making $500k a month, the truth about how he is doing it the most likely the same as people like Greg Secker the Forex Guru and yet another Lamborghini driver (seeing a pattern here) that makes his money selling his system, as oppose to his system making money.
In the case of John Crestani it’s pretty simple, he has his own affiliate network called Nutryst http://grow.nutryst.com/
This is an affiliate program for health products and nutritional stuff. I’m guessing that most of it’s white label generic stuff that has no real value, and if John is as smart as I think he is, it will be dropship white label products, this is where you never see the product, and you simply take payment and arrange for a supplier to directly send whatever product out with your own label on direct to the customer.
I’m not saying that’s what it is, but if it’s not he’s seriously missing a trick, because that would be the easiest way to run this type of business remotely in a place like Thailand. Plus he once said on a video that I saw on youtube of him stating that “not having clients is awesome” leading me to the assumption that he doesn’t hold the stock or handle any of the customer service.
But saying that, I could be wrong, and I’m not here to start a smear campaign on the guy, I’m simply writing what I believe his model consists of.
So next up is my brief conversation with John. I messaged him on Facebook to ask about his “opportunity” and he got back to me saying it costs $5k and then he told me to look at his forbes article, in fact he mentioned his forbes article on two out of 5 messages to me.
What concerns me about John, is what he offers, he told me that he has a 12 week training program where he’ll teach me how to promote his own products via Facebook ads, in fact there’s a lot of info on how he’s “cracked facebook ads” all over the place, because many people found the same issue I had with Google adwords back in the day with the FB ad network, and that’s negative ROI.
Negative ROI is where you make less in sales than it cost you in ads, it’s what sent me bankrupt, and I have no intention of going back there.
So where’s all this going?
Well the genius of what it looks like what John Crestani is doing, is that he’s asking people for $5k to take the risk or running a negative ROI campaign.
John takes the $5k so he’s sorted and probably uses some of it to pay towards his call centre that call you from a Beverly Hills phone number to ask you a series of boiler room style questions under the premis of whether you are suitable for the his training program or not.
John gave that bit away to me on a facebook message, where he wanted me to take a phone call to see if I was “capable” of learning his methods, and then whether I met his “Criteria”
To me this was a red flag, but I had to have some admiration for Johns set up. You see, earlier I referred to him as a genius, and this is why.
He charges $5k that covers his core costs and I’d say thats his core revenue, his call centre determines how much money you have to run ad campaigns, and then he shows you how to set up a campaign on Facebook ads, or native ads, or whatever.
Now lets say you spend a further $5k on ads, and you make $1k in sales. Who still makes money no matter what?
John Crestani does, that’s who, in fact everything this guy is teaching and promising doesn’t make sense to someone like me who has seen what saturation does to a Pay Per Click campaign, and this simple fact is that the more people there are pushing the same ad campaigns drives up the costs of the ads, and then the ROI becomes negative.
But there’s probably people out there that after they invest $5k initially, will keep throwing money at it because they want the lifestyle John has.
But the only person who is guaranteed to make money using this model is John, the affiliate as with all affiliates most likely don’t succeed, because it’s not as easy as the internet wants you to believe. And by Johns own admission he had several years of failures under his belt, so he knows better than anyone that the vendors of product or the affiliate networks themselves are the onces that generate the risk free cash whilst the affiliates take all the risk.
If you want John Crestani’s lifestyle, then set up an affiliate program using www.hasoffers.com fill it with products and then sell a training course on how to advertise that business using native ads, facebook ads, google ads whatever ads for $5k, and you’ll make a killing.
In fact I’d go further and say that $5k is all you need to set up a direct clone of his business model, which involved hiring a Lamborghini and getting to the nearest beach and recording few videos for much less than $5k
So do I think he’s that John Crestani is a scam? I actually don’t, I just think that it’s got its risks, so if you’re thinking of trying it, I wanted to highlight the potential pitfalls of such a system.
