My Blogging Espionage Review

Jul 05

Below you will find my Blogging Espionage Review. As you will know if you have followed my previous reviews, I am not one to hype up them up in a bid to get you to buy though me. I will tell it like it is and my Blogging Espionage Review is no exception.

BloggingEspionage200 My Blogging Espionage ReviewRob Benwell recently released his Blogging Espionage product and it was promoted by a LOT of big name marketers. Did they do their research before promoting it though? You decide based on my review.

Usually Rob Benwell’s products are pretty good. That was another reason why I decided to purchase it.

As always, I purchased this product at full price ($37) and decided to give it a whirl in case it was something worth telling my subscribers and readers about. As you may already know, my track record as of late has not been good so I was not expecting big things.

The first thing that struck me is that the website stated that “Only 300 Available!” Given that I had seen several big names promote the product, I was surprised that it hadn’t already sold out. (Well to be honest, I wasn’t really but given that it WAS limited, it SHOULD have already sold out.) Needless to say, more than 2 weeks since I purchased the product, it is still being sold, so I hardly believe that only 300 copies were only available.

Anyhow, I ordered and was immediately hit with an upsell. From memory it was for several hundred dollars and involved a “coaching service” but don’t quote me on that as it was over 2 weeks ago and I’ve bought a fair few products since then!

Obviously I declined the upsells and just went with the base product.

What I received was a 40 page PDF report (36 pages when you take out the cover page, copyright info, table of contents and a brief introduction.) The product itself focuses on TWO methods to make money from blogs. Obviously I can’t go into too much detail about the specific methods here, as that would not be fair to the product creator. Pages 22 – 34 of the PDF focus solely on setting up your blog (i.e. how to register a domain name and install a WordPress blog using Fantastico – something you will see I showed you how to do on this very blog some time ago.)

Overall, I don’t doubt the method taught on the remaining pages MAY actually work, HOWEVER I think most people will be disappointed. The sales page claims:

“… It’s possible for anyone to follow and make money in a matter of a few hours… If you’re really lazy, within 24 to 48 hours.”

Personally I struggle to see how this is the case unless you are very good at writing your own content. The product recommends 6 months (approximately 60 posts) worth of content should be created initially. 6 months! Even by outsourcing that, I don’t see how it’s possible to have the job listed, your writer(s) selected and the content back to you within 24 – 48 hours??? And if you’re doing it yourself then you’ll be looking at a LOT longer. To be fair, he doesn’t recommend that they ALL have to be text posts however this will still make up the majority of the content you will need.

“The great news is you don’t have to worry about any of the following…

Having An Existing Website Or Blog
Having Any Technical Knowledge
Having Previously Made Money Online
Having To Work Long Hours
Having To Wait More Than 48 Hours To See Results
Having To Spend More Than Ten Bucks
Having Your Own Product”

If you don’t have more than Ten Bucks (the price for the domain you will need to purchase, then you can kiss goodbye to the idea of outsourcing your content.)

Personally I feel that the sales page and sales video is WAY over-hyped. The product itself is perhaps feasible if you were patient enough to follow the system, however I think that the financial rewards would be significantly less than is touted on the sales page unless you were EXTREMELY lucky.

Benwell’s guarantee is indeed compelling, however I would suspect that you would have to provide a lot of PROOF that you have actually REALLY TRIED to make the system work for you before being able to claim the $100

“$100 Guarantee #1

I GUARANTEE That You’ve Never Even Heard Of This Strategy Before… If You Prove Me Wrong And Have Heard About It Before Then I’ll Give You $100 Out Of My Own Pocket Plus A Full Refund!

$100 Guarantee #2

I Also GUARANTEE That If You Run With This Strategy YOU’LL Be Able To Make At The Very Least $1,000 By This Time Next Week… Again, If You Prove Me Wrong I’ll Send You $100!”

Overall – and sadly yet again, my advice is to save your hard earned cash. For the majority of people, there is just too much work involved to see results. IF I categorically KNEW that the system would in fact produce the results that Benwell claimed, I would indeed have implemented everything he recommended. Given that there are now thousands upon thousands of people who will be trying to use this method, I did not see it as worthy of further investigation.

Having said all of this, Clickbank does offer a 60-Day Money Back Guarantee so, if nothing else, you have a fairly good chance to test it out for yourself if you were that way inclined. Personally I wouldn’t bother spend the time or money on this one though.

    Try and buy a valid aged domain with a PR of 3 or more for $10…….uuuummmm, I don’t think so.

  2. Well, from what you say Aaron, this sounds like the 163rd iteration of stuff I’ve already spent hundreds of bucks on.

    I’ve bought other Benwell products and this doesn’t sound much different…for that matter it doesn’t sound much different from stuff I’ve purchased from other gooroos.

    Just what I need, another drawn out dissertation on how to pick a hosting company, a domain name and load my WP blog. All stuff available all over the web for free, BTW. And why would I not be too suspicious to think there are some affiliate links hiding in these recommendations.

    My hard drive is jammed with various programs and I’ve been methodically downloading and archiving them. Although, I doubt I’ll ever dig into the archive.

    I’m saving a few valuable programs and the rest of them are coming off onto CD. I expect to have a few hundred usable MB of space when I finish this exercise.

    At least this is one (more) place my bucks won’t be heading.

    Just another example of Benwell’s BS. Over hyped rubbish that in my experience is just plain dishonest.
    The claims he makes are laughable and as you say – just try and get the $100.00 out of him. The one thing I find difficult to comprehend is how this person is still making a living by peddling this garbage.

    Rant over

  4. Hi Aaron
    I bought Rob Benwell’s first ebook Blogging to the Bank years ago.
    It was badly written, full of his own affiliate links and frankly I thought it was ‘crap’.
    Did it help me start blogging? …. NO
    Have I bought anything else from him? … NO
    Nuff said!!

  5. Hi! I am a freelance information broker. I usually perruse websites for customers who want to find people, businesses, or academic institutions for the exchange of information and web presence develpment. I review allot of sites in the pursuit of my clients. Your site is one of the more infomative and well put together. I just wanted to say thanks for providing honest, thoughtful, and useful content. Your vene is a far cry from much of the trash that populates the cyber universe. Thanks again!

  6. Thanks for the honest review. I have to admit I felt tempted to simply slap down the money for Blogging Espionage simply to prove myself that greed is the dominant sales motive in the make money online scene. But I guess I’ll simply have a nice lunch tomorrow instead. Cheers!

  7. Bought the ebook. The marketing and selling on the sales page is very convincing but after reading thru it, I tried but to buy an old domain with RP 3 for $10-$20 I sincerely think it is not possible.
    I will be more careful next time on all his products and will sure not to buy anything from him for a while.
