In an ongoing effort to separate the good shit from the bad shit, it is important to try and expose some of the shenanigans that are marketed towards affiliate marketers,especially newbies. I don’t feel like writing a novel here, so I will try to keep it short and sweet.
This is affiliate marketing drama at its finest.
PPC, CPV, Whatever the Fuck Coach
There is a certain series of Coaching forums you may have seen mentioned on various affiliate marketing circles. There are a few good testimonials, but the general consensus is this: utter shit.
The gripe I have with this Coach series is how the owner works his subscriptions. You sign up, and you’re on Month 1. The program may have been out for like a year…. so if that’s the case you are always a year behind as each month you stay subscribed, a new month opens up. Techniques are generally stale at this point.
I have first hand experience with CPV Coach. I signed up to the forum thinking I might learn a thing or two. Shit was I wrong. There isn’t a thing you can learn on this forum if you have half a brain and do you own marketing and research. I read through the forum when I signed up and thought, “What the fuck, the first affiliate marketing related course I pay for and I got whamboozled. This is shit!”
So I did a few more seconds of research which I should have done beforehand and realized I purchased the wrong course. I actually wanted to hit up PPV Forumla (by Gauher Chaudhry), and I fucked up and bought what can only be described as a cheap, Chinese knock-off.
I emailed Guaher Chaudry about this, and his extract response was –
CPVCoach is a rip off of my PPV Formula 1.0 course.
Anyways I got my money back and decided to forget about the whole incident.
But today, I saw this highly comical post at Clint Lenard – The Truth Shall Set You Free!
Basically the “Coach” guy (I wish I could recall his name cause it is getting annoying calling him Coach guy”) was pissed off that Clint made a post exposing PPC Coach for the sham that it is. Then Coach-douche starts being buddy-buddy with Clint because Clint launched his own Affiliate Newbie Training (here)
You followin’ me camera guy? I know it’s getting confusing.
It turns out that Coach-douche and another worthless affiliate-blog writer have teamed up to try and rip off Clint’s Affiliit.
He partnered up with a guy we’ll refer to as Scaremiah Pooper, for privacy sake. Now Scaremiah has a long history of being an AIM chatter, who spends his days talking to people on AIM, and making outrageous claims. One day he claimed to be making $30,000 – and then 2 weeks later I hear he’s putting up a Million per month? Sweet!
FACT: Scaremiah is a complete newbie when it comes to SEO, and he’s been quoted by several people admitting this. He’s also been quoted as becoming a member on our site and giving props to our SEO information, stating that he’s learned a lot.
How can you go wrong partnering with a guy who post this kind of pretentious bullshit?
The moral of the story is the whole Coach series is run by someone who does not know what they are doing – they simply regurgitate information from someone that knows a lot more. If you base your whole business model ripping people off do not expect long-term success. Stop paying for his programs. That is all.
Arbitrage Conspiracy and Tin Foil Dildos
Conspiracy theories? No, not those kinds
There is another bullshit guru course floating around called Arbitrage Conspiracy. I’ve heard of it but haven’t read it, but if it’s promoted on Warrior Forum it must be good, right?
Well today, an inside source (I keep a few on the payroll) FWD’ed me an email from the Arbitrage Conspiracy people. Apparently they have spent all the money they “earned” ripping off newbies, and are back for round 2. For the record, my source who sent this email is a legitimately great affiliate marketer. He does the guru thing occasionally, but other than that excellent marketer.
On to the body of the e-mail. This whole Arbitrage Conspiracy email is a bunch of “complaints” about the course and their rebuttal. I told you that newbie ATM machine ran dry – now they’re back to clean up the mess.
We’ll just skip to the most important part –
7. Emmanuel and I Learned Everything We Know from Another CPA Marketer
This is unbelievable guys. I actually found out that some of our very own affiliates were saying this nonsense. Emmanuel took three different courses when he started and none of them took him to the next level.
I have never taken a ppc or cpa course. I was given one course as a gift, and it is sitting on a shelf somewhere in canada in shrink wrap. lol I know you probably have more concerns or might need clarification on a few matters.
And maybe you’re wondering about the rumors of the relaunch. ;)
The source who FWD’ed the email to me writes –
These (referring to the Arbitrage Conspiracy email) guys are fuckin insane.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many people have told me this course just plain sucks balls after a tennis match.
Not to mention affiliate networks called me and said they got a slew of new applicants that complained this course sucked and asked them on how to make money.
These guys literally learned everything from Gauher and now throwing it back in his face. They talk shit about a lot of people in this and webinar.
Anyway, these guys think their the shit cuz Stompernet was behind them. haha!
In Conclusion, Everybody Rips off Guaher
So if you want to start your own coaching program or guru newbie training program, the secret to success is to rip off Gauher Chaudhry. Plain and simple. There are few “gurus”(christ that word makes me feel filthy) worth listening to. Gauher is one of them.
If you’re a newbie, cop his shit – not these knock-offs.
Update: It has come to my attention that people might think this is a paid, requested, or a “favor” post for Gauher. Do you see an affiliate link?
I never “talked” to the dude, I just emailed him once about that incident and that was his response. He probably doesn’t even know who I am. Should he know? FUCKING RIGHT YOU BETTER KNOW! You see these guns on the side of the site?! YOU BETTER RECOGNIZE THE PAPER CLIQUE MOTHERFUCKER.

OK I’m cool now. I should have grabbed something to pitch and make a commission or two off of but I am lazy with this site. Rumors are I will sell out thought.
