OK, I just finished reading Google Sniper by George Brown and it took me 3 sittings to go through and review all 99 pages.
First off let’s verify some claims from their sales letter
Can you set up automatic money-making mini-sites in 2-3 hours with this system?
Yes, I know this for a fact and could probably do it in 35 minutes if I knew something about the niche and product(s) I was going to be promoting
Is a Google Sniper site completely 100% done after the 2-3 hours of set up?
No, it will more likely be 2-3 hours of set up (for WordPress newbies) then an additional 30 minutes to add/publish the final content piece. For someone like me it’d be a total of one hour to make a site like this.
Some questions users might want to know about the income claims of $15,000.00/month from Sniper sites:
Can you make 15k/month doing this?
Answer #1 -
I have one sniper-style/authority site that makes #1,000.00/month on autopilot and the income increases a little bit each month, so technically 15 of these would be tantamount to a 15k/month income. however, that site requires a ton of work for me but I love doing it and would do it for free just to help people out, so I probably spending more time educating on that site than I do selling.
Answer #2 – Yes, if you do your research properly and make a lot of these sites
What does George Brown’s Google Sniper ebook course tell us that’s new?
Kind of hard for me to answer that since I don’t know what i sin your head, so let me explain to you what the course covers without giving away all his content:
1- Finding a niche and it’s related keywords (this is ALWAYS the first and most important critical factor for your site’s success)
2- How to build these sites (the video modules cover this well and this info is available everywhere for free anyways)
- Why use wordPress to build sites
- Installing WordPress
- What plugins to use, how to install them, using and configuring plugins
- Designing the site
- Finding Free themes, what themes to use for certain niches
3- How to make your site sell
To me this was the real golden nugget of this course and George knows it, and even says so on page 35 of 99.
- If you build a site and nobody comes to it that means you did poor niche research, right?
- If you build a site and people come to it but don’t buy that means you aren’t convincing your site readers to buy from you, right?
The Pre-selling for 20% Conversion Rates section is something a LOT of people need to know and understand because I see a ton of people who have really crappy sites and content that I’d never even think about buying form because their content sucked, big-time.
Note: How can site content suck?
- No calls to action
- Overly pushy calls to action
- Site content didn’t make me a believer in the benefits of getting the product
- No claimed or proven proof that the product works (see bullet point above)
- …and sometimes the bonus is just terrible (unrelated + useless addition to product)
Chapter 4- SEO stuff for getting free traffic and dominating in the search engines
I know SEO pretty well and everything he says here is true, although I could add in a few things that could make it better, more powerful and more useful.
In chapter 4 of Google Sniper George writes about gathering keyword lists together using free tools, but the NEW thing I see here is he’s talking about using LSI-based keyword research.
He writes that getting a keyword-based domain name is the #1 most important SEO aspect to your Google Sniper site.
He says you can extrapolate a list of related keywords to use for LSI and eventual easy rankings using Google free Keyword Rearch tool
He says Google’s keyword tool is notoriously inaccurate when it comes to saying how many times a word is searched for each month because Google includes search partners in its volume numbers. Therefore you should shave off something like 20% off the search volume counts.
TRUE ( I was happy to see someone else besides me say that. I said that here a long time ago)
Chapter 5 – Cloaking Affiliate Links
This was a brief and important chapter that shows you how to make cloaked affiliate links at no cost to you and it’s pretty easy to do. Good thing to add in here, and something a lot of marketers, myself included don’t do (cloak aff links)
Chapters 6 +7 go over creating these sites step-by-step and then talks about the site promotion angle of things
This is where I could save you a lot of time and teach HIM and/or you a thing or two about SEO and backlinks generation, but since these sites by their very nature don’t need a lot of backlinks or promotion, what he wrote here is sufficient for niches with low-to-medium SEO competition.
Chapter 8 – What everyone really wants to know, does this work and can it turn into a 6-7 figure yearly income?
It works for him, apparently, but will it work for you?
Will it work for me with the 4 new Sniper Sites I’m going to build for this Google Sniper Case Study?
That remains to be seen, but this is definitely a good ebook to get just for the Pre-selling chapter alone.
Moving forward, I will reveal the 4 niches I decided on then make a 2-post case study to wrap things up here
