Newbies On Fire – Compensation Plan Explained

If you are checking out Newbies On Fire and still have burning questions, I get it.

Most people usually don’t fully understand the power of the compensation plan.

So just to recap….

There are four levels of training at Newbies On Fire:

  • Starter Package – it costs $25 + $5 admin fee
  • Basic Package – it costs $100 + $10 admin fee
  • Advanced Package – it costs $250 + $25 admin fee
  • Elite Package – it costs $500 + $50 admin fee

If you wish to know the course content, check out this article.

So how do you earn money here?

There are two ways to earn money at Newbies On Fire:

  • You earn instant commissions when someone you refer purchases a package.
  • You also earn residual commissions here.

Starter Package

If you join at this level, you are only eligible to earn $25 commissions.

When you make your first four sales,  sale 2 and sale 4 are passed up to your sponsor, so you’ll make a $50 commission.

Basic Package

If you join at this level, you are only eligible to earn $25 and $100 commissions.

When you make your first four sales at each level commission level,  sale 2 and sale 4 are passed up to your sponsor.

Advanced Package

Newbies On Fire – How It Works


Have you come across Newbies On Fire and are wondering how it works?

Newbies on Fire is a training platform that launched late last year.

Now as you know by now, it is rare that I review a product that I have never used.

So you if you click on the link and proceed to purchase one of the packages, please note that I may earn commissions.

How To Use

What Are The Features Of Newbies On Fire

There are four levels of courses at Newbies On Fire.

Starter Package

This course is all about Blogging and Branding and costs $25 plus a small admin fee of $5.

Basic Package

This course is great if you need help with knowing how to find your buyers.

It costs $100 with a small admin fee of $10.

Advanced Package

This course is all about Facebook Chatbots.

It costs $250 with a small admin fee of $25.

Elite Package

The Elite package is clearly more advanced and was created for three purposes:

  • Learn how to create your own products.
  • You learn the ins and outs of having a membership platform.
  • Teaches you how to facilitate customer retention.

It costs $500 with a small admin fee of $50.

Who Is Newbies On Fire For?

Newbies On Fire was designed for the newbie who is looking to learn about Internet Marketing.

In addition, Newbies On Fire was created for the Online Marketer trying to earn their first dollar online or even for more established marketers.

The key benefit of Newbies On Fire is the low cost of entry – just $25.00.

What I Like About The Product

  • There is no pressure to complete the video lessons within a specific timeframe.
  • What I also like here is that if you play it safe and start at $25 say and then if wish to upgrade to the Starter Package worth $100, you are only liable to pay the difference, not the full $100. So you would pay $75.
  • On the other hand, if you opted to purchase the highest priced package of $500, you will receive the other 3 levels of courses absolutely free.

You can earn while you learn here.

Newbies On Fire is an affiliate program in its own right.

So you can earn $25,$100,$250 and $500 commissions here, over and over again.

But that’s not all: you can also earn residual income with it’s Reverse 2up compensation plan. What earth on does this mean?

Allow me to explain…

If you are on the $500 package as an example, when you get your first 4 sales of $500, you must pass up sale no. 2 and no.4 to your sponsor, that is the power of residual income.

So although you have generated $2,000 worth of sales, $1,000 goes to your sponsor for doing….absolutely nothing. And then that’s it.  So this is a powerful compensation plan.

What I don’t like

I know for a fact that the compensation plan does not appeal to everyone and might look like you are gifting money to your sponsor.

In reality, a good sponsor should be there to support any of their referrals so they can achieve success with this type of program.


12 Minute Affiliate System Review – Is This A Scam?

I have finally decided to do a review on the 12 Minute Affiliate system.

You may have come across an ad about 12 Minute Affiliate. You might be wondering whether this is a scam or if you can make money with this opportunity.

Before I begin this review, I would like to point out that I am an affiliate marketer. So if you click on a link in this post, I may earn commissions.

What are the benefits of being a part of this system?

The purpose of the 12 minute affiliate system   is to help its members promote affiliate products.

The system was created by Devon Brown, an experienced and successful Internet Marketer.

There are three niches covered. You can choose one niche only or all three niches. They are:

  • Home business or make money online.
  • Weight Loss.
  • Personal Development.

How does the system work?

When you join 12 minute affiliate, you will receive a welcome email containing your log in details to access your Back Office.

Once you are in your Back office, on the left hand menu click on Getting Started and just follow the steps.

The most important point to understand with this system is that you need an autoresponder. The trainings are conducted using the Aweber autoresponder.

Once you have set up your autoresponder, you will then be able to set up your funnels and will be ready to make money.

So what are the key features of the 12 minute affiliate system?


As discussed above, to make the system work, you must have an autoresponder. Devon Brown does his trainings using the Aweber autoresponder. At the time of writing, integration with GetResponse and Mailchimp is possible

Instant Funnels 

You will have access to 10 instant funnels if you are in the home business niche. I assume that  this is the same in the Weight Loss and Personal Development niches.



Custom Funnels

You are able to create your own custom funnels using prebuilt templates.

Facebook Group


You will find key trainings inside the Group where you can also get your questions answered.

1 on 1 coaching is provided

It can all be very overwhelming when you get started online.

As a result, 12 Minute Affiliate offer 1 on 1 coaching where you can get additional support. They offer two packages and these cost more money.

Basic Package

3 hours worth of coaching. There are three sessions.

This is to assist you with completing the basis tasks such as setting up your autoresponder.

Affiliate Mastery Platinum coaching

It is for those who are serious about growing their affiliate marketing business to $100,000 or more a year.

Who is this system designed for?

The 12 minute affiliate program has been designed for anyone who wishes to earn an income online or is already earning an income online but want an additional income stream.

12 Minute Affiliate allows you to test drive the system at $9.95 for 14 days.

There are two membership levels to consider:

The Basic membership costs $47 per month or $397 for the one-time lifetime membership and is for 1 niche only.

The Gold membership costs $97 per month or $797 for the one-time lifetime membership and is for all three niches.

The system also has an affiliate program. So you earn 50% commissions where someone joins the program through your affiliate link.

What I like about the 12 Minute Affiliate system

  • The program owner Devon Brown does do regular trainings inside of the Facebook Group.
  • 12 Minute Affiliate provide their members with email swipes for follow up emails.
  • Many people don’t have a desire to mess around building funnels. So having a plug and play system like this really does help.
  • There are many people who have earned their first affiliate commission after joining the program.
  • The training is really easy to follow.

What I don’t like about the program

  • Having to pay money for an autoresponder on a $47 a month program is a bit much in my view. But do watch this space. That may change in future. I currently have an autoresponder included with my monthly fee of $50 at The Conversion Pros where I can build an unlimited number of funnels.
  • I feel that there is too much of an emphasis on Done For You traffic although there is an ebook within the platform on free traffic. Incidentally, if you wish to learn about free traffic methods, here is a free course that will help with that.
  • I would have liked more choice with the number of funnels for my niche.
  • I feel that the trial period should be free to allow us more people to join and experience what is on offer before making an informed decision to join.

Final thoughts on the 12 Minute Affiliate program

12 Minute Affiliate is most definitely not a scam. I have actually tested the system and can tell you that it does work. After buying traffic, I earned commissions with this program almost immediately.

What I would say though, don’t join if you are not committed to your success. You will only burn a hole in your pocket.

If you can afford the investment on the other hand, don’t expect overnight riches either. That only happens in movies.

Have you had any experience with this affiliate marketing opportunity? What were your thoughts on it?


Is The Conversion Pros Worth Joining? – My Unbiased Opinion

I was presented to The Conversion Pros at least 2 years ago but did not join straight away. If you are looking at this opportunity, you may be asking whether The Conversion Pros is worth joining. 

As an affiliate of this program please be advised that if you click on a link, I may well earn commission. However, I try and be as objective as possible when writing about an opportunity. So this is not designed to be a sales pitch.

What are the benefits of joining The Conversion Pros?

There might be three reasons why you are looking at The Conversion Pros right now:

  • You need leads for your business immediately.
  • You are looking to build sales funnels for your business.
  • You are looking for an opportunity to earn money online.

You need leads for your business right now

Generating leads can be a time consuming process. Let’s face it. Depending on your circumstances, you may not have the time or patience to want to generate your own leads.

As a result therefore, The Conversion Pros offers you the opportunity to purchase leads from them if that is the service you are looking for.

These are pre-qualified leads. They have already undergone the interview process regarding what they are looking for. You now have the chance to do a follow up with them and put your opportunity or product in front of them. They will have completed a form. 

These are people looking for more information about making money online. When you purchase your leads from TCP, they are yours.

You might be looking to build sales funnels for your business

Someone looking to build sales funnel might decide to look at The Conversion Pros. There are other alternatives in the marketplace such as Clickfunnels, Builderall and Leadpages etc..

A sales funnel aim is to move a customer along in their journey and it has 4 key stages:

  • Awareness
  • Interest
  • Desire 
  • Action

So naturally, we are all in business to make sales otherwise there is no value in being online.  

A sales funnel can help move a customer along the journey quicker from the initial awareness stage to action (usually a sale).

The done for you funnels that I reviewed in High Ticket Hijack had three objectives:

  • Generate leads
  • Deliver a lead Magnet
  • And get a sale

So you could use The Conversion Pros to build your own sales funnels.

You are looking for an opportunity to earn money online

If you are looking to earn money online then you might be looking at The Conversion Pros for that reason.

The Conversion Pros are confident that they can help you earn an income of $10,000 per month. Obviously, they cannot guarantee that and it is very much dependent on how much effort you put into your business.

What are some of the features of The Conversion Pros marketing system?

14 day trial

You can test drive the system for 14 days free. There is no requirement to provide a credit card for that. 

There is a monthly fee thereafter of $50.00.

Page Builder

You can build capture pages or sales funnels from scratch or you can opt for the prebuilt templates. If you choose a prebuilt template then it will be designed it just a few minutes. 

Contact/Member Manager

You get notified of new leads for your business opportunities or TCP prospects if you are an affiliate in your Back Office.

Mobile App

The mobile app serves the same purpose as above but is particularly useful if you are on the move and want uptodate information 


Autoresponders are a key part of growing a business and cost money. You will be familiar with autoresponder companies such as Aweber or GetResponse.

The Conversion Pros have their own in house autoresponder..This makes it easy when building a sales funnel with The Conversion Pros to connect the two together.

But I was able to integrate my GetResponse autoresponder with The Conversion Pros.

So who is The Conversion Pros for?

The Conversion Pros is suitable for those looking for leads. It is perfect for people looking for tools that can help them take their business to the next level eg building landing pages. It is also ideal for people looking to make money online.

What I like about the Conversion Pros

  • I have used other platforms to create sales funnel such as Builderall and Clickfunnels. I find building sales funnel with The Conversion Pros very easy especially when using the prebuilt templates.
  • There are plenty of tutorials to help out so you can never struggle. There is training for building capture pages, using the autoresponder. There are also training on how to dominate social media for lead generation. There is training to help out affiliates.
  • The landing pages are great for lead generation and do convert.
  • I like the idea of a 14 day trial. Before a prospect buys they can actually test drive the system fully.
  • The cost is not unreasonable when you consider that the autoresponder is included in the package.

What I don’t like about The Conversion Pros.

  • My only gripe is that I preferred the old Back Office. I find the current Back Office much more tricky to navigate.

My final thoughts about The Conversion Pros

Overall, The Conversion Pros largely does what it says on the tin. 

I have never seen the need to purchase leads from The Conversion Pros. So I cannot objectively comment on this service. I prefer generating my own leads.

But you cannot knock the overall service provided here. You build sales funnels and send follow up emails to customers and prospects alike. What is there not to like about that?

Some people may say the price is too high but the cheapest product at Clickfunnels for example is $97. The fact is, nothing in life comes free.

High Ticket Hijack Review – Is It Really 100% Done For You?

High Ticket Hijack launched in September 2019. It professes to be a 100% done for you automated commission cash cow. Is that true?

I purchased the basic version of this product and I am also an affiliate for it. So if you click a link on this page and make a purchase then I will earn commissions.

However, I still want this review to be as impartial as possible.

First of all, exactly what is high ticket?

If you have landed on this review, you are probably searching for a way to make money online or you are already making some money online.

Typically, a lot of people (including myself) promote or have promoted low ticket affiliate products, often ranging between $10-$47 dollars but it can be much more.

Thousands of affiliates promote these types of products for….very low commissions.

High ticket affiliate programs pay much, much larger commissions. An increasing number of affiliates target affiliate programs where they can bank commissions of say $1,000 or more for 1 sale.


Well, the reality is that the effort required to generate a $10 commission or a $1,000 commission is exactly the same.

Hence, more and more people are changing their strategy and promoting higher ticket offers a lot more.

At the end of the day, we all want to be rewarded for our time. So if we can earn larger commissions, it makes the hours spent doing online work somewhat worth while.

So what are the benefits of the High Ticket Hijack app?

Affiliate marketing usually works best through email marketing where:

  • You build a list of subscribers by giving away a lead magnet.
  • Once your prospect is on your list, you use email marketing to drive them to your affiliate offers.

According to the program owners, here are some of the benefits of this app (software):

  • You don’t need a list – trying to build a list can be a massive headache and it is far from easy.
  • You don’t need experience – using the software does not require you to have experience.
  • There is no need to pay for traffic – the program owners provide you with proven free strategies.
  • There is no struggling to find products to promote – you will be given approval to promote these high ticket offers.
  • There is no need to spend more than 15 minutes per day – once the system is set, you’ll only need 15 minutes per day to keep the product running.

What are the features of the High Ticket Hijack Software?

So the High Ticket Hijack software is a cloud based software with nothing for you to download on your computer or laptop.

It is based on a straight line marketing model that provides you with two key features:

  • You will receive a lead capture page that serves a dual purpose. It gives away a free ebook and also a free training is offered.
  • The done for you webinar page where the prospect goes through the training. The free giveaway will only be provided when the prospect goes through the entire training that contains an irresistible offer.

Who is this for?

This type of software is for absolutely anyone to use.

You don’t need any special skills or knowledge. You just need to be coachable and be prepared to take action.

If you don’t know how to build sales funnels or don’t want to build sales funnels, then this is definitely for you.

However, this software is also suitable for experienced marketers.

So how does High Ticket Hijack software work?

It is really very easy to set up. If I can do this then I suggest that anyone else can.  With this system, you will need to have an autoresponder.

The training shows you how to connect your lead capture page to your autoresponder using Aweber. There are other autoresponders in the market of course. But do be aware of the additional cost.

Once you purchase the system, you will log in and then from the left hand menu, you click on Training.

The first training module you should be following is the one above. It basically shows you how to add your affiliate links to your Done For You Campaigns.

Now you will have to register with ClickBank and Warrior + affiliate networks if you purchase the basic software. These are both free affiliate networks. Adding your affiliate links to the software is easy.

Once you have done that, you also select the free giveaway that you want your prospect to receive after they have watched the webinar training and that’s it.

The next step is connecting your lead capture page to your autoresponder. Again the tutorial, makes it easy to set up if you are using an Aweber autoresponder especially.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to build a list and how to create a follow up email series in your autoresponder.

And now what next?

Once you are set up, you are ready to drive traffic to your sales funnel. There is further training that helps you drive traffic to your done for you sales funnel. The training gives you 3 strategies:

  • Solo ads (paid strategy).
  • Instagram – (free strategy).
  • You Tube (video marketing – free strategy).

What I like about the product

  • The software allows you to create your own campaigns.
  • It is definitely not difficult to set up. I have created the three done for you Campaigns with minimum fuss.
  • They are all high ticket offers paying higher commissions.
  • There are many affiliates promoting affiliate products and not building their lists. As a short term measure, probably OK. But a list is so important. Hence, the ability to promote a product while your list is being built for you should be an attractive proposition.

What I don’t like about the product

  • The basic product only provides you 3 offers to promote. However, the unlimited version offers a lot more variety.
  • The sales page headline in my opinion is misleading. It reads: “How I effortlessly make over $1,000 per day.” Making money online requires effort somewhere along the line whether using a free or paid strategy together with a software.
  • What would have been helpful especially for a newbie is having a follow up email series of say 3-5 emails to add to the autoresponder.

In conclusion

I have not heavily promoted the done for you funnels inside of the High Ticket Hijack. But one thing is clear to me: it is not a scam.

However, there are too many upsells in my opinion and it does lead me to wonder whether the basic product is a waste of time altogether.

Once, I have promoted the done for you funnels, I will add more information in my final thoughts on this software.

Do you have experience of using this software to promote the done for you funnels? If so, what has been your own experience so far with it?

Covert Commissions Review – Is It Really Worth The Hassle?

Have you been online looking for an opportunity you can do from the comfort of your home?

I stumbled upon an opportunity a few days ago and thought it would be worth doing a review on it.

Now before I go any further here, please note that any product or opportunity that I review on this site will always be a product or opportunity that I am using. So as I am an affiliate of Covert Commissions, if you click on the link and purchase the product then I will make a small commission.

However, the intention of this review is to be objective. So I will share my thoughts on this opportunity during the course of this review.

What is Covert Commissions?

The whole point of Covert Commissions is to assist you with list building and to make money from your list building efforts.

Unless, you live under a rock, you should be well aware that one of the best ways to make money online is through list building.

A list is merely a group of people whose email addresses you possess. These people are happy to receive information from you.

It is well documented that marketing to 100 people you have established a relationship with is infinitely easier than trying to market to 1,000 people who you don’t know.

When people know, like and trust your recommendations, they are more likely going to buy from you.

List Building is far from easy

List building is definitely not a simple process. There are many moving parts to it. The end goal is obviously to make sales when you build a list.

Here is the harsh reality: even if you know how to create a high converting squeeze page, it is not enough to generate a sale. You still need to think about your lead magnet or gift. You will need to think about an email sequence that converts. Also, if you don’t have copywriting skills then it can be challenging to create a follow up series.

People typically need 7-12 exposures before they buy a product and that’s why you need an email sequence.

The fact is that not everyone is ready for that level of work. Many people give up as a result of overwhelm or even a lack of time.

Covert Commissions is a Done For You System

  • It is cloud based. There is nothing to install. You are nearly ready to go when you sign in to your Back Office.
  • You have a choice of 70+ opt in templates.
  • A variety of niches are covered such as relationships, wordpress, fitness etc
  • The freebie is taken care off and comes in the form of a report or software gift which contains your affiliate link.
  • The follow up emails are dealt with for you by Covert Commissions

What is the cost of joining Covert Commissions?

You can check out the prices below. It is pretty self explanatory:


Having said that at the time of writing, you currently have the ability to join free and test drive the system.

Free Membership V Paid Membership at Covert Commissions

  1. The choice of templates on the free membership is limited to just 7 templates as opposed to 70+ on the paid membership.
  2. The autoresponder is built into your free membership. So your leads are emailed automatically. You have zero involvement with that. The paid membership on the other hand allows integration with your own autoresponder. And that is why you will see above that you are able to export your leads.

What should you do once you have joined?

In order to promote the squeeze pages, you will need to click on the circle in the top menu and then on My Profile. Scroll down to Affiliate IDs and you’ll need to provide the following:

  • your ClickBank ID
  • your JVZoo ID
  • your Warrior + API key

ClickBank, JV Zoo and Warrior + are just some of the biggest affiliate networks out there. Signing up with them is absolutely free.

Why do you need to sign up with these affiliate networks?

Well, the products you are going to promote are products that you can find on these affiliate networks.

By signing up with these affiliate networks and entering your IDs in your profile section, your affiliate links will automatically be embedded into the free gifts so you can earn commissions if your prospect decides to purchase the product.

If you already have an account with these affiliate networks, just add your existing IDs in your Back Office.

Check into the Briefing Room next

The Briefing Room gives you detailed information on some of the elements contained within your Back Office.

  • you’ll gain an understanding of how to track your promotional campaigns.
  • you will be informed on where to find your links to promote Covert Commissions.
  • if you don’t have a JVZoo or ClickBank account, you’ll be shown how to set up your account.
  • you will learn why should purchase credits.

What mission do you want to go on?

At this point, I recommend that you prepare for your first mission.

You can do so by going to the menu on your left hand side and clicking on My Missions.

This is a list of products you can promote within the Covert Commissions platform.

Don’t know how to promote these products?

Your Weapons Cache is surely your next port of call

Especially if you are brand new to Affiliate Marketing and have no idea how you are going to promote the products available to you on Covert Commissions, you’ll need to head over to your Weapons Cache.

There you’ll find video tutorials on traffic generation techniques you can implement. Some of the techniques covered are:

  • Blogging
  • You Tube
  • Forums
  • Pinterest
  • Facebook

Traffic is a huge subject, so this is just an idea of what is possible.

If blogging is something you want to do, then Covert Commissions will offer you a free blog as a pro member.

If you are a free member, who wants to do blogging but don’t yet have money for one then you can obtain a free one at Wealthy Affiliates or Wix.

Covert Commissions has pleasantly surprised me

So this is just a reminder that Covert Commissions takes the headache away from list building.

  • There is no need to worry about building a squeeze page.
  • You don’t need to worry about what lead magnet you will use and how you will deliver it.
  • If you are cash strapped then as a free member, you have an in built autoresponder and the email follow up series.
  • However, the benefit you get as a paying member is that you can integrate your own autoresponder.

Life is not perfect at Covert Commissions

  • At the moment, as a free member, I don’t have a lot of choice in terms of what I can promote.
  • The inability to integrate my own autoresponder is really restrictive. You have no control over what emails go out to your list.

My final thoughts on Covert Commissions

After just two days of using Covert Commissions, it is pretty obvious that this is not a scam.

This is a very useful service that can help those who don’t have the time or the desire to get involved in other aspects of running their online marketing business.

This program is therefore suitable for someone who is brand new to Internet Marketing and also a more experienced marketer who just wants to focus on traffic generation.

This is definitely not a get rich quick scheme and is not suitable for the lazy.

The fact that Covert Commissions is a done for you system does not mean that there is no work involved. You still have to drive traffic to your squeeze page and that is easier said than done. It requires work to succeed with it like with anything else.

What are your thoughts on Covert Commissions? Do you have experience of using this software? If so, feel free to leave your comments below. Otherwise, if you have a question, feel free to ask it.
