If you have never heard of a man by the name of George Brown before, let me give you a basic rundown of who he is.
He is a man that is most popularly known for his unethical and shady marketing tactics in the world of cyberspace.
George has created many programs in the past, but none as popular as Google Sniper.
There have been many versions of this program, but his latest is its relaunch of Google Sniper 3.0
Before we get into the actual review I want to share some of the past products that this guy has created.
On Warrior Forum George Brown is popularly known as PREDATOR and below you will see that a member of Warrior Forum tried out one of his products and went on the forum to give some of its members a heads up.
Of course, there is not much information given within the screenshot, but one thing does concern me: the fact that most of the products that have been created by George Brown often result in email accounts being frozen for suspicious activity.
Knowing the possibility of what I was in for, I took some caution into using this program and this is exactly what I found.
Basic Overview and How This System Works
The very first thing you will notice, just as I did was that even after buying into the program, I didn’t really get into the actual program itself for almost 15 minutes.
Why is this?
It’s because you are forced to navigate past 4 upsell promotional offers before getting into the actual program itself.
But that wasn’t the worst part!
The worst part of the sign-up process is the fact that you are almost tricked into buying a monthly membership that costs $47 a month.
You get tricked during this process because there’s no mention of a recurring fee for use of the program, just a simple purchase button.
Just take a look at the screenshot for yourself!
If you sign up for this program, make sure that you unchecked the option for monthly access so you don’t get roped into a monthly fee.
This is a very sneaky tactic made by George Brown simply due to the fact that there is no mention of a recurring fee in the sales page.
Once you manage to get past all of the upsells, you are finally taken to the member’s only area.
Even I have to admit that this section is laid out pretty well (and trust me, I am not happy admitting that).
Upon entering you are asked to head on over and check out their introductory video labeled “Sniper Cash Machine Course.”
However, this introductory video is nothing but a 16 minute prattle about why you should promote this program.
Of course, there are other videos that teach you about the program itself but I think it’s personally ridiculous to have an introductory video that teaches you nothing about the program itself.
Remember at the beginning of this review how I mentioned any product created by George Brown has a nasty habit of getting various email accounts and social media accounts banned in the process?
Well, after watching several of these videos for myself I can see why this happens often.
You are then instructed to use your own social media accounts to promote the program. To do this, you are instructed to post several status updates on Facebook daily.
While this won’t necessarily get you banned from Facebook (unless of course, they consider it spamming), you are also recommended to directly message your friends, family, and co-workers to try out the program.
The reason for this recommendation is because the people closest to you will trust you and sign up automatically.
An example of one such post is one below:
The second part of the training offered in this program is a .pdf file that is about 108 pages in length. This .pdf goes over basic marketing strategies such as starting your own WordPress blog, how to find a niche, how to find profitable keywords, etc.
However, this training manual had its own basic flaw in it: all of the information is a bit outdated.
This manual was created in 2009 when marketing tactics were a bit shady in themselves and not as strict as they are today. You can even see in the manual that it often refers to the program as Google Sniper 2.0 which clearly it isn’t.
There is yet another .pdf file that is offered and it is called the “Google Sniper Bulletproof Manual.”
This 60 page .pdf file contains a few videos that promise the most up to date information on marketing strategies that you can use.
This is perhaps the best part of the training that is offered with this program. I will admit that it does contain some good information that you can certainly use, but then again this is outdated just like the first training manual.
So, What Is New With This Program?
As you know this program is a relaunch of the original Google Sniper 2.0 system and to be honest, not much has changed. For starters, the logo is new and that is the first thing I really see that was changed.
Aside from that several of the videos that you are instructed to view you are unable to simply because of the fact that they will not load. This makes the core value of the training material provided a complete mystery.
Who Is This Program For?
If you are new to the world of online marketing and are looking to get some basic tips on how to do it correctly, the .pdf files do have some value in them.
However, if you were to use them I highly recommend staying away from the “Sniper Cash Machine” as some of the tactics that it suggests you use are borderline scam tactics such as spamming email and social media accounts.
This program is mostly for those with little to no marketing experience whatsoever.
If you have experience in online marketing, I really do not see you benefitting from this at all.
What I liked about it
- This program is relatively easy to navigate and all of the information is laid out very well
- The “Bulletproof Manual” is up to date with helpful information and does give a decent blueprint on how to further website development
What didn’t I like about It?
- Most of the methods that are taught in this program are very unethical and illegal in some cases
- There are way too many upsells and down sells right when you are attempting to sign up for the program
- There is a deceptive and hidden recurring fee that you are not told about up front
- Many of the training manuals are very outdated and use marketing tactics that are not successful today
- This program asks you to sell to your friends and family before even teaching you about the program itself
How Much Will You End Up Paying In The Long Run?
Like I said earlier you need to pay $47 just to gain access to this program, but if you aren’t paying attention you could end up paying a whole lot more. This is where you are tricked into entering into a recurring monthly payment of $47 a month.
Check out the screenshot below
But that’s just the start of the costs associated with this program. As a matter of fact, you can’t even get started after you pay this fee for around 15 minutes like I stated above due to all the upsells you are hit with as soon as you enter the member’s area.
I’m not going to waste your time going through all the upsells they hit you with, but I’ll tell you this, if you were to invest in everything they tell you that you need then you would be looking at an additional $187 on top of the $47 monthly fee.
What Kind of Support is Offered?
I was surprised to find that this program does have a support system in place in the case you run into some trouble. The bad news is that the support system that is offered is your standard email ticketing system.
Another flaw with this support is that they make it perfectly clear and state that it may take anywhere from several days to weeks to even months before you receive an answer to your question.
To make matters worse, the support staff has clearly stated that they will offer no support as long as all of your marketing campaigns haven’t been set up first.
This support makes it clear that you will need to rely solely on yourself and the training material provided in order to be successful. In my opinion, this is not support.
They are leaving you in the dark to work this system out all on your own. I would much rather see you get around the clock help and support from a community that actually cares about you.
What also gets me going is that throughout the training the program often refers to itself as a giant and thriving community filled with marketers that are making money….but where is it?
I don’t see a forum, live chat, or anything of the sort other than a Facebook group that you can use to chat with other members.
There is no physical way that you can chat with members of the program or with the actual creator himself.
This program doesn’t even come close to my #1 recommendation for starting an online business Check it out below
My Final Opinion
To be completely honest, Google Sniper 3.0 is exactly like its predecessor the 2.0 version. While there are a few new things that are offered such as the training manuals and training videos.
Most of the videos cannot upload which makes it really annoying.
The only real valuable source of information came from the main .pdf guide, but of course, it was more informative when it was originally created back in 2009.
While there are some helpful tips in this manual, I feel that you can find much more valuable information elsewhere and get a whole lot more for your money.
The truth of the matter is that all of the information that you are given with this program is filled with shady spam tactics and unethical practices such as trying to sell to your family and friends.
Also given the fact that you are not really told how much you make per sales really bothers me.
For the standard price of $47, this is as good as you are going to get in terms of informative material, and to be honest, you can find cheaper and more valuable outlets on the internet today.
The moment you sign up you are almost roped into a monthly subscription (pretty sneaky of Brown if I say), get extremely hyped about the amount of money you can make, are deceived by deceptive advertising and are sent a sales pitch to subscribe to another so called money making program.
This is just one product that I cannot recommend to you. Honestly, there are much better programs out there that can offer you a lot more useful information than this program can.
My advice is to stay away from it!
