Free Affiliate Insider – Update 2

February 26, 2009 | By | 17 Replies More

Today just a “Quickie” to let you all know that my blog post about Free Affiliate Insider is developing into quite a monster – lots of comments from people who have tried or are trying the program as well, it will pay off to go and have a read if you are considering to join, or are in it already.
Reading all the comments from fellow Internet Marketers does not make Free Affiliate Insider look too good, to be honest. I first thought it was a scam (when I had problems with the site), then I was contacted by Michael and reassured that everything was ok, there were just problems with the hosting company and they were being resolved, but after hearing what other members of the program are saying I think I am losing my trust into the program.
Michael recommends in the training section to sign up for any of the free trial offers of the diet review website, and I tried to do that, but ALAS as I am from Australia, I don’t seem to be able to get any of the offers, or only some substitute. That sort of didn’t sit well with me either.
Anyway, this is just a quick update, I will still hang in there (after all, I paid $46.56 hosting fee, and it would cost me a one time cancellation fee of $35 to cancel, so why bother?), but I haven’t been advertising actively. And I don’t know whether I will.
It’s probably “another one bites the dust” in this case. Stay tuned.

    You already make sale ? or still yet?

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @jeury – I still have to make my first sale! I had 138 clicks on the free offers so far, but no one has taken up any of the free offers. Now I find that a bit strange – usually people like free! :(

    Petra,

    I joined the program roughly 2 weeks ago. I purchased advertising offered through the training website, have seen a substancial amount of activity through powweb (over 2000 visits) but only a couple clicks through marketblaze (no sign ups). I’ve sent emails to Michael and Market Blaze asking how to track affiliate refferals but have received nothing back (about one week ago). Michael did respond to one of my emails in the first few days but it was brief and didn’t answer any of my questions. I am not feeling good about things at all. I would like to hear more about your experience. I would love to know if anyone has actually made money on this deal. Email me at [email protected]

    • Petra Weiss says:

      @Mac, I cannot give you any more updates at the moment, nothing is happening here on my side. I hope you will get a few people email you that they have made money – I would love to hear from them, too!

  3. I joined almost a month ago and have gotten a lot of clicks but no
    action. I sent Michael an email about my concerns. He replied that I would see great results this month. So far nothing has happened.
    I find this strange especially since he guaranteed results. If this is a real opportunity, I will be overjoyed. If this is a scam ( which is likely after all I have read) we should start a class action suit and make him pay for taking advantage of people who are trying to improve their lives. If you have any information , please contact me at [email protected]

    I signed up about a week ago. Paid for the web hosting and they built my so called “unique” site which looks exactly like Petra’s site and I suspect everyone elses. I tried to sign up for two “free” trials as the training tells you to do. Well the first two on the list lead to a page that says “this offer is no longer available” obviously won’t get any commisions from those. The third one does not have my state (utah) available so I put in another state to see where it leads. Well if I paid $4.95 for the “free” trial, then I am agreeing to join something and will be continually charged for the priviliage on a monthly basis. I’m sure I could somehow cancel, but we all know how fun those things are to cancel. I think that any actual customer would also back out at that point.

    I wrote to Michael Beeson and he wrote back reminding me that I have not paid him a penny, just the web hosting company, so if I want a refund get it from them. He also told me that the sites are all working for everyone else in the world but me, so it must be my browser settings….hmmm….anyone else know of browser settings that send you to a web site that says “this offer is no longer available”?

    Well, I am off to call American Express to see if they can put a hold on that web hosting charge. Wish me luck.

    P.s.
    anyone with any information reguarding this issue can contact me at [email protected]

    • Petra Weiss says:

      Wendi, you are right – all the sites look exactly the same. When I wanted to sign up for my free offers unfortunately they weren’t available in Australia. When I tried to cancel my web hosting account, they would have refunded me around $10 and kept the rest (around $35) as fees. So I decided to just ride it out for the year but not actively doing something with it.
      Good Luck with AMEX!!!

    I have been doing the site for 3 months,I have got 546 clicks,and ten request for the product,all said I have made $260.00 but I have not got a check, its been 22 days from when It was said I would get paid,that is every 25th of every month,so for any one that is hoping to get paid,dont quit your day job,and one one more thing,has anyone ever got in touch with the marketblaze.com support team,or is it a scam to.

  7. Dan says:

    So far I am not impressed. Every website is identical. There is no way to view the page source to see keywords used, description, etc. Support doesn’t answer questions.

    I am trying to use the preload feature in get response but the instructions don’t work. If anyone can tell me the username and pw to use the preload feature it would be appreciated. My email is [email protected]

  8. tom pascucci says:

    I can not get marketblaz to respond to me at all, the only thing that shows on the screen is to ask for your e-mail adress and it keeps saying no e-mail found. I have also written Michael several times with no responce. I think this is a lost cause. I think we’ve all been hadddddd.

  9. Goal Group says:

    I cant get a response either =(

  10. Mary says:

    I have been signed up with MarketBlaze since Aug.09.
    I pay the half share on the ads. No luck. I also e-mailed the company. No response. I can not even get updates on my acct. I think it is a scam.

  11. There is all the time a chance to earn profit through affiliate programs but evaluating the essential commodity that matches our niche is the most complex work. I went through some of your blog posts and found it enormously beneficial. I sincerely think, your blog has helped me much to come to terms with the idea behind affiliate marketing. I have bookmarked your blog and am following your RSS.

    Hi All

    anyone have any other contact email addresses to Bobby or whoever his name is
    Any help appreciated

    Paul
