KD Suite Offer Orgy – A Decent Product Marketed by the Decepticons

by splork on June 14, 2013

Paralized orgy

Some days I can’t decide which assemblage of flotsam I loathe more: politicians or Internet marketers. Obviously the politician has the potential to screw up my life far worse than any guberu ever will but both sometimes will rely on deception, misdirection and outright lies to get what they want.

Today allow me to bring to your attention the latest Kindle software package: KD Suite. With Google’s Pandas and Penguins keeping the herd corralled in tidy fields of corporate hay, some have made a break for the wide open grazing lands offered by Amazon. Plenty of cowboys are seeing an opportunity to collect a travel fee while sending these pilgrims on their way to the Kindle promised land.

Of course the bartenders want their cut of the action too, so they’ll collect a finders fee from the cowboys . The pilgrims, seeing the shiny new opportunity on the horizon, just want another chance to be parted from their money in search of riches.

KD Suite will assist you in your travels, pilgrim. At least that is what they promise. A 3-in-1 mishmash of data mining, the product will collect keywords, reviewer contact information and report on what is selling.

I don’t really have a problem with the research it provides. In fact, it is rather useful in my estimation to know what people are buying and what keywords to target when you are prepping and marketing your ebook.

No, my problem is the marketing. Can’t an Internet salesman simply sell a product without tricks and gimmicks and upsells and downsells and deceptions? Obviously not.

So, when you go to the webpage, for all that is good and holy, do not simply click on the buy button and go straight through for the purchase. No. Try to close the webpage and wait for the damn pop-up box begging you to “Cancel” for a special offer. Then you will uncover something like 8 bonus software products. Three of them, the AZON Amazon analyzer suite, is actually pretty useful as I have it. There are other products for eBay and Pinterest and cloaking links and stuff that you might dig as well.  Maybe you’ll let them rot on your hard drive. I dunno or care but at least you have them. Makes spending $97 $47 seem more palatable.

I continue to receive the “Steve and Tim” spam emails. I opted in and haven’t bothered to opt out. Sometimes it’s fun to see when they are pimping for money and what products they whore themselves out for. I don’t believe for a single minute that these people use the products they pimp. Supposedly their products and services are the greatest IM offerings floating through the sewers so why would I need a product other than theirs? Do their products not solve all my problems? And if not, why not, and why should I buy another product when theirs was supposed to help me make money online? I just do not get the circle jerk of IM product promotion.

Anyway, back to the cancel trick/deal above. The Steve and Tim spam said to claim the “Huge Bonus” click through their special link that the masters at KD Suite set up special for them. Uh huh. Make sure you order through their special link so you can claim the bonus, it says. Fact is the bonus is available to anyone that figures out to “cancel” in the first place. They aren’t as special as their email would have you believe, but that is how these people agitate to collect a sale.

I like to be sold to straight up. No tricks. No gimmicks. No backroom deals. This scummy crap is like used car sales. Whatever it takes to close the deal, man.

Should you buy KD Suite? I dunno. You have seven days to get on the ride or the price goes to $97. You know, the old time sensitive ploy to create anxiety to purchase RIGHT NOW! They indicated they may take it off the market for good measure because you just do not want this kind of power in the hands of too many. Whatever.

I think even if you don’t care to ever write a Kindle book there is value in figuring out where people’s interest is on eBay and Amazon. I used the AZON suite to discover products for Squidoo lenses. You can quickly figure out what is selling and what kind of commission you can expect. Maybe you can use the KD Suite to see what ebooks are selling through Kindle then take that topic and write up an ebook and sling it on Crapbank for a better payout. Use the Pinterest tool to figure out what the girlies are giggling about and create a Squidoo lens or blog on the topic. I mean, if they are pinning and re-pinning some photo of a mason wine jar hundreds if not thousands of times then maybe you can figure out how to monetize their interest. Ideas . Gotta have ideas.

This is my affiliate link for KD Suite. If this is something that interests you then using this link is appreciated.

Thanks but no thanks, Splork. I already have two Kindle software packages that I’m not using. I really don’t need to add one more that I won’t use either.

Of all those that I’ve actually tested, I like Jutoh the best and it works on Windows and Linux and maybe even Mac. It isn’t tied to “Word” like so many others.

@RT – No problem. I can’t blame you. There are tons of products out there trying to cash in on the Kindle market. I will say that what I like about this really has little to do with Kindle. I like it, and the AZON and eBay tools, for the ideas it generates.

Using the Kindle tool you can figure out what people are willing to buy in the various categories. Cross check that with the eBay tool. Then take that data and use the AZON tool to determine if there is a product worth promoting via Amazon. You could also look in Crapbank. Create a decent little site and you have the potential to make some money. Link a Hubpage, Lens, Tumble, Facebook and Pinterest page. If one is motivated you could go ahead and write that Kindle book or even submit it to Crapbank. Research. I think if I offered 5 ideas with the potential for money I could probably sell it for $50. And I might do that on Fiverr. For the same amount I can data mine for ideas as long as I want to.

Splork, The only way to make money is to trade your time for coins or sell something to someone for coins. Trading your time for coins will make a living but it will not make you rich. The path to riches is a rocky uphill road (and I am on that road). Even the Guberu’s invest much time into the processes that you see but they all have the same fundamentals. I do not have any interest in sucking money from people that will never benefit from the shit they buy that they will never use, and I never made any money trying. That’s why I sell stuff that people need. When you sell something that has quality and is tangible and also has a margin that is where you really make some coins.Volume, Selection, and large coverage is the key (along with customer service). I was saddened to see the winch site disappear but that was just a speck of what is needed to bring in coin. Reality sucks for most all of us but the right way is usually the difficult path. It’s not easy so no one does it. My advice is quit thinking easy path. No such thing. What product does the world need that you can supply with a large margin. That’s what you sell! Fuck Keyword Strategy! If you want to make money on an Ebook, write about the rise and fall of the Google empire and launch it before their collapse. You could easily do that book.

Cheers!

Hello!

“Insert Name Of ex-lazy-Internet-Marketer Here”, “I want to seem like I have some wisdom to offer you, but I really don’t.

…Maybe I’ll be THAT GUY for a moment. You don’t have to think in terms of products — like what product the world needs but doesn’t have. The real truth can be summed up in one word — Value. Lol. To make money online, you don’t have to “sell” anyone anything — you just need to provide real value. You sort of tickled the concept with the post about solving people’s problems. Whatever unique way you choose to do that, whatever problems you solve — just make sure you give it your all and offer unique value.

If you’re an affiliate marketer or want to go that route, how can you insert yourself. The over-whelming majority of “marketers” miss the core of what it is to be an affiliate, which is, I believe caused by sheer laziness. Outsourcing a bunch of review articles from some website like textroker is not doing anyone a favor. If you’re an affiliate, you need to actually PHYSICALLY review the product. If you don’t, how can you ever hope to give your real opinion about the product, which provides real value to people searching for that product.

This guy commenting above is on the right path. The majority of all of these people trying to make money online are just lazy; they constantly game the system, and they’re always in search of the latest fad used to game the system. In the end, they’ll all fail, for the sole reason that they aren’t providing value to anyone. They spam links all over the web because all of the other lazy people told them it’s the only way. Most people miss the core values because the few who are, for lack of an intelligent insult, idiots, keep preaching the same bull.

The Internet is still ripe for people who want to do it right. Lazy marketers are constantly shaving against the grain. All of the Google updates are meant to help people who’re doing it right, and you better believe that eventually good will prevail over evil — evil being the spammers who bring no value to the web or the people reading their spam; you just have to find a way to offer unique value where it’s lacking. If you do it right, every update that Google releases will serve to help your purpose. The spammers will have you believe that Google is out to get you or some bogus crap like that.

There is such a lack of people doing it the right way that now is the perfect time to hop in and do it right. Splork, you’re so tired of it all, the web sewers and what not, likely because you’ve been led in the wrong direction the whole time. It’s an excellent time to wake up, so to speak, and do it right. Keep in mind, it will be hard. If you choose the righteous path, yes, it’s going to be hard, but it will be more than worth it in the end. Forget about all of the crap you hear from all of these lazy marketers. Deep in your gut, if you’re spamming the web, you probably feel bad about it — there is a legitimate reason for that — because it’s not right.

You want to be an amazon affiliate, look at dpreviews that AMAZON BOUGHT. There’s a lot of great examples of people who did it right, and were paid handsomely for it. Just focus on providing that unique, true value, and as many times as it’s been said, the money will follow. Don’t even think about the money — think about how much value you can provide.

If you look at all of the people who spammed to make good money with Amazon and whatever other program, they’ve all but been cleared out — they probably make next to nothing now. Why? Because in the end, they simply exploited a loophole and didn’t provide true value. All that shit about content is king — you better believe it, but it’s not so much content, but it’s really VALUE is king.

For example, a guy in the alcoholism niche sold his 1k-2k a month website for over 200k. For the longest time, I wanted to believe that it was just luck, but if you know him and his website and his values, you would know his main focus was on providing the highest amount of value as possible. In the end, he was rewarded handsomely for it. You don’t even need faith because you’re focusing on value — not the money.

The thing is, everyone is capable of offering great value, in their own, unique way. However, since you have years of experience with websites and the Internet and whatnot, you have a massive advantage over the majority of the population. You, I and anyone else can continue gaming the latest loophole, only to be left broke and depressed in the end, or we can use our knowledge, leave the darkside/spam-side, and use the knowledge to figure out the best channels that will deliver the most value.

Now is an excellent time to start a website. Google is crushing the spammers, and although there will always be people gaming the system, the tables are quickly turning in the favor of those who do it right. Reach deep into your heart, and you’ll know when you’re providing true value. Also, although backlinks are still the strongest factor that influences Google’s rankings, you don’t need to “build” any of them. When you build links, you build them solely for the purpose of sending direct traffic to your website. Never build links to influence search engine rankings, and all you have to do is ask yourself that question to know if that’s what you’re doing.

All of the lazy marketers want you to believe that “you need backlinks to rank.” They come up with all sorts of excuses to justify their link spamming, but in the end, it’s all just a bunch of excuses. If you take in these core values about providing value and how to link the right way, you’ll see just how green the grass is on the other side. You can create something that will truly last over the long-term, but the endless lifespan of what you create is just a bonus — the real prize is being able to provide true value to the Internet, and although you shouldn’t worry about it, you will be rewarded handsomely in the end.

You don’t want to be one of those lazy marketers who are constantly shaving against the grain and chasing their own tails in the pursuit of money. As many times as it’s been said, provide the value and the money will follow — abundantly. Maybe you’ve been secretly asking for a new path, and maybe i’m here to set you on that path. I felt compelled to write this for you — maybe it had something to do with the fact that your website is lostballinhighweeds — well maybe you don’t need to be a lost ball.

I understand that the years of spamming, gaming, deceiving the search engines have made you tiresome — you’re not alone. I hate that it’s taken me over TWO YEARS of my life to finally stop the trickery. I’ve been on the same exact path as you, but once you remove the blindfold and see that MMO and life in general is about providing value, you, like myself, might actually become excited about starting over and doing it the right way. When I go out and buy real products for my REAL review website, I feel great about it, and I don’t ever think in terms of return on income. I might spend $200 on a new product, but I think in terms of how much extra value the review is going to provide to people who are about to spend $200 of their hard-earned money on said product.

As hard of a mindset-shift as it might be, it’s the only real way to do MMO. but also, life in general. I’ve actually gone back and forth several times. From dark, to semi-good, back to dark, back to semi-but-a-little-more-good, then back to dark again. Now, I’ve finally left the darkside forever. My path has never in my life been this clear. Maybe this wasn’t meant to be, and it will turn into a rambling on your blog that will never be heard. However, if this was meant to be, I hope that maybe you now have some inspiration to do something great.

Just understand that it will be hard, and as a former lazy marketer, you will have to go out of your comfort zone. You’ll have do to things you probably wouldn’t dream of doing, but all in the name of providing real value to people.

Toto, that was some comment. You could probably package it as an ebook and sell it on Amazon.
