Product/Service Reviews / Paramount Profits / GFX Apocalypse
« on: May 22, 2014, 05:13:38 PM »
I downloaded the GFX Apocalypse from the members section here.  I found a few images I liked in it and wanted to include some images in a software I'm developing.  The rights here in RRW say it's only for Personal Use.  So, I contacted Paramount Profits in regards to purchasing either MRR, PLR, or whatever rights would entail me being able to use some of the images in my software.

For over three days I've been going back and forth with their "support."  Basically I keep having to repeat myself as they're asking the same questions over and over.  Their final response was this:


Thank you for responding.

Unfortunately no Nick, you bought it from another person or company.
You better ask them. ^_^

If you still have problem please let me know and I'll be happy to help.
I was wondering if I can close this ticket now, either way do you have any other concern?

Best Regards,

Seriously?!  I've clearly explained to them that the access I have was Personal Use and that I was willing to pay for additional rights (MRR, PLR, whatever) if it would allow me use of images in my software.  Clearly the support team is run by idiots.  I normally am not one for name-calling, but when I waste my time having to repeat the same exact answers for two days in a row, and then get an answer like the one I got.... It really annoys me (to put it nicely).  It's obvious this support person has no desire or concern for making extra money.

They've just sealed their fate.  I'd never purchase anything from that company.  Mark, if you can give me any advice about the images within that package, such as if it's available anywhere else or such, I'd be most grateful.  I'm mainly interested in the certificates that are in the package.  I've tried contacting the company that I thought made it but my efforts were futile.

Thanks.  I've tried the rebrander plugin.  It doesn't work very well at all.  I tested it on two templates.  First template was one I created using TemplateToaster.  Complete fail.  Then I tried to use a more recognized theme.  I used the twentyeleven theme that comes with WordPress.  Another fail.  Didn't update any of the author info, theme or author URIs.  Nice concept but unfortunately it's buggy to the point of it not even functioning properly.

In any case, while it may be legal, I don't consider it to be ethical.  If someone designs a theme, you take it and all you do is plaster your info on it or simply resell what you purchased, I consider that to be unethical.  Now if you actually make significant changes or improvements to the theme or plugin then that's a different story... So long as credit is given to the original author.

Questions About Latest Products / WP Rebrander Tool Missing Pages
« on: May 14, 2014, 01:21:51 PM »
I downloaded the WP Rebrander Tool (07/06/2013).  I read the instructions and in them, it states that it includes a list of sites where you can legally download the themes and plugins that are GPL compliant.  I see no list.  I looked back over the PDF.  In the table of contents it has "What Premium Themes that are 100% Safe to Resell ĎAs Isí."  That's on page 11.  Unfortunately the PDF is only 9 pages long.  It seems as if two pages were clipped off this PDF.

After threatening to cancel I got the following response back:

As a one-time courtesy, we have changed the details as you have requested. Kindly inform your bidder for your project "Develop PDF Generation Extension For Fusion 2.5" (Project ID: 5908731) of your budget range of $30 - $150 USD so that they can make any necessary changes accordingly.

Note that the same may not be granted again in the future. For your next projects, kindly check all the details before posting it live on the site. When you edit the skills for your project, the system may automatically set a default title based on what you have selected from the lists. We suggest that you check these to make sure they are correct before posting the project live to avoid inconveniences on your end.

Basically, it seems they won't admit to any error on their part.  They're making out to where they're doing me a favor.  I'll see if I get any responses to my project and how the responses are.  However, based upon their attitude it's very unlikely I'll post any more projects.  Any company that won't even look in to bugs in their system is not one I wish to do business with.

As for posting a project... It's pretty straightforward.

  • Select the category, such as Websites IT & Software, then the Subcategory
  • Then fill out the details such as a title, price range, skills, and a description

I'd recommend be as detailed as possible in the description.  Thus far I've received a reply for about $1,000 even though the budget was around $150.  Starting to wonder if people actually read the projects before replying to them on freelancer.  I responded to your PM.  I'll be glad to help where I can.  I'm not experienced with posting on freelancer sites.  However, I'm a computer geek.

Any recommended outsourcing sources?  I've seen tons of training for outsourcing in the members section.  Just curious as to any proven training that's recommended.

How does it compare to say PowerPoint?  I can easily make whiteboard type videos that are narrated.  I can make them in PowerPoint, included with narration and export them as a video file which I can upload to YouTube.

I needed an extension developed for Fusion 2.5. I figured I'd give a try. I posted what I needed, however, noticed immediately that what I typed was not what was posted. For one, instead of the project title I originally put, it was the default genetic title of "Write some software." Next I noticed the price range was wrong. Instead of the $30-$150 option I selected it was the $$50-$700 option.

I clicked to edit the project. It won't let you edit the title when you click in the box. There's no option at all to change the project price range. I figured I'd delete the project and repost it. Their system wants to charge me $5 to delete the project. I was dumbfounded. My project hadn't even been up for 20 minutes.

I contacted support about the issue including my concern for being charged $5 to delete a project that cannot really be edited and where information was wrongly posted due to an error of their system. I received s response basically telling me price range and titles cannot be edited. They suggested I delete the project but reminded me that deleting a project incurs a $5 fee. It's almost as if they could care less their system messed up and they were trying to rip me off. I responded that I would be deleting my account.

This was the first time and my last time ever using Their site software is buggy and they could care less about it. Hopefully I'll have better luck with odesk.

Congratulations!  Now pick one!  You are overthinking this.  Pick one direction and go for it!  Get one income stream up and running then create another one.  You can do affiliate marketing, cpa marketing or make your own products.

I know.  That's my biggest hurdle... over thinking. 

You aren't required to get a business license or bank account for your business to sell your products online.

That's not entirely accurate.  It depends on your state and local (city/county) laws.  I live in Louisiana.  In the past I've checked with the local Sales & Tax Use department of my parish (other folks call them counties) in regards to online non-tangible (i.e. digital) sales.  They told me that even though taxes weren't being charged as it's a digital product, I was still required to have a business license and tax certificates (state and parish).

Ron Killan, thanks for the advice.  When I get to the point of creating (or reselling) my own product I plan on having business hours posted.  I know customers expect, in this fast-paced digital age, there to always be someone there.  However, by posting business hours customers can know ahead of time when they can expect responses.  If I happen to respond outside of business hours that can look good as I'm taking time out of my personal time to respond to their inquiry.

For customer service I'm a firm believer in providing as much information as possible so that they can find the answers for theirself without having to submit a support request and wait on a response.  To me, it looks better on a person or business that have their products well-documented.  This includes a searchable knowledgebase, online video tutorials, and PDFs.  None of this is difficult for me as I'm a computer geek.  In particular, I do on the side web design and development.

I think, though, I need to heed snginc's advice and pick one thing, complete it, and then once I get that going worry about something else.  With the No Cost Income Stream 2.0 that Mark recently added, I think I'll take a gander at it and try to implement with some affiliate marketing.

One thing in affiliate marketing that I learned from a software course by Andy Brocklehurst, was creating small simple software to give away for free or require simple registration as a method to build a mailing list.  Tons of free software in the membership section here.  Also, simple things I can easily create myself.  I use Clickteam's Fusion 2.5 Developer.

This morning I got an e-mail about this system from a marketer I'm on the mailing list of.  I've learned to first search RRW first.  I searched the membership section, low and behold it's here.  Therefore, saving me $37.  I then searched the forums and found this post.

I e-mailed the "creators" of this system asking if there was any possible way that when purchasing the resell rights package to be able to offer resell rights to others... Basically giving the buyer of the package MRR type rights.  It would be nice if at the very least Mark could offer it on the $1 menu.  When I hear something back from them I'll post an update.

Btw, thanks Mark!  I'm amazed at how quickly new content is added to this site.  Before I even think about purchasing any "package" I always check the RRW site first.

I've finally decided to get off my butt and put my Gold membership to use.  Lots of great PLR content and ways to make money.  My dilema is which route to go. One route is to use content and other downloads in the membership area to bring people in and make money via referring through an affiliate link.  With all the content here I can easily research and rewrite the content to create a website.  I can also rewrite the content to create reports for people to sign up to a mailing list or even create bonuses when people purchase through an affiliate link.  The other option is to create my own products.  I can create my own ebooks, packages, software, etc.

Selling my own products would basically require getting a business license, bank account for the business, etc.  Affiliate Marketing I collect a commissions check each month.  No need to deal with any of the business formalities.

My issue is I like to have control over what's going on.  With affiliate marketing you're limited.  Ultimate control is by whomever creates the product/service you are advertising.  I'm not looking to become a millionaire by affiliate marketing.

I'm looking for experience from those that have been in the game a while (affiliate marketing and/or selling your own product).  What has been your best method?  Advertising other's product/service or creating your own?

I downloaded the one you mentioned as well as the Zero Cost packages I found in the RRW member's section (videos).

A few examples from the video were sources such as Launch Rock, Prezi, and Brain Shark.  That is true that time is a cost.  A good example is that when I create websites my financial cost is little to nothing.  Having been working with websites for over 10 years I'm quite familiar with many free and open source software such as Wordpress (and their plugins) and Joomla.  I can create a great website for no financial cost.  My time was learning to use WordPress and Joomla as well as searching for all of the free plugins/extensions to do what I need to do.  I don't mind investing my time if it will pay off down the road such as what has happened with me learning WordPress and Joomla.

Product/Service Reviews / Dan Holdings Zero Cost Marketing Secrets
« on: April 06, 2014, 03:41:15 PM »
Last night I watched a webinar by Jay Boyer and John Rhodes.  It was with Dan Holdings and his system on how to do marketing and spend no money for the marketing.  I've done a search in the member's section of RRW and have found a few Zero Cost Affiliate Marketing e-books and related.  They were added as recently as January 2014.  Dan Holdings system is supposed to be for any marketing, online, offline, e-books, actual products, etc.  That is, not limited to just affiliate marketing.

Has anyone heard of Dan Holdings?  Is anyone familiar with the Zero Cost Marketing System?  I've found a few others selling a "zero cost marketing" system on the Warrior Forums.  Are they all the same?  Are they the same or similar to what's offered in the RRW member's area?

Looking forward to when this gets added.  Watched the video and seems like an awesome opportunity as either a main business or side business.  Another option that comes to mind is to take the content and repackage it.  That is, create a full course (with videos) that people could access.
