A Truthful Review of The IM Goofball’s Guide

First of all, let me tell you that I bought this WSO. I didn’t get a review copy, and I have no affiliation with the product creator. I just liked the idea of the product and so I bought it to find out more. I did like it enough that I will include an affiliate link at the end of the review, but not until I’ve explained to you what it’s about and given you enough info to judge for yourself if it’s worth buying.

The premise is making money by providing services to marketers. Particularly email swipes. According to the author, marketers are in “desperate need” of people to write their email swipes for them. Now, I don’t know if that is actually true or not, but I do know that marketers need services as much as the next guy. I’m pretty sure most of them don’t write everything themselves, especially the big guys.

So, what do you get for $9.97? (at the time of this writing).

You get an 86 page pdf that explains three different methods you can use to provide value to marketers. The first, of course, is the email copy swipe method. Mark goes in-depth with this method as learning to craft excellent emails is not only very lucrative, (according to him), but also the foundation needed to write copy that converts. And writing copy is what you will be doing in two of the three methods. There are a few free resources that he talks about that for me were worth the price of admission. (hint – think headline generator). All of the email module is also covered in a youtube video in case you prefer watching the information, and it’s all covered step-by-step to where it certainly seems like a feasible way to make money. He claims you can learn the skills in a weekend, but I highly doubt that, unless you already have some skill at writing.

The second method is similar to the first, many of the skills you just learned in the email swipe section will be used here as well, or if you start here then you will need to learn them before continuing on. Once again, everything is step-by-step and another video walk through is supplied. And once again this one requires you to have, (or be willing to gain), some skills in writing.

The third and last method does not require any writing, and is pitched as being “well suited to those for whom English is a second language”. It’s more technically inclined, and involves setting up some stuff for the marketer on their backend. Personally, I think this method is the weakest of the three and I can’t imagine any marketer needing this service since they’d either do it themselves or they’d already have a team in place that does it. But the author says it will work…. Of course, he doesn’t spend very much time on this method so I have to wonder if it was just thrown in to give something for the people who don’t want to write.

Overall I believe the first two methods taught will work, although I haven’t put them into practice yet. I may not, at least not for paying clients. I mostly bought this wso for myself as I’m trying to create some email swipes for one of my sites and I thought it might help me write better copy. Considering the step-by-step nature of the method I know I’ll be better when I get done implementing it.

As far as OTO’s go, there’s one that’s supposed to make things quicker and easier, particularly for non-native English speakers. It’s $37. I didn’t buy it. Then there’s a downsell for $17. It has everything in the $37 offer except some wordpress video plr. I didn’t really take a good look at it. My philosophy is a product should give value without the OTO’s, and this one did.

So, who’s this WSO for? Obviously if you like to write and want to learn about providing email swipes for marketers then it’s a must buy. It’s also pretty good if you’re working on your own set of email swipes for your list and you’re struggling. Just follow Mark’s advice and put in some practice time and you should be up and running soon enough. If you buy it let me know what you think in the comments below.
