    Skagenweb is the vendor of this product. I think he needs to bury this product once and for all.

    Heh.. I said all along that "Skagenweb" was nothing but a snake-oil salesmen, who has done no real hard work of his own, unless you count ripping off free e-books and scheming customers "hard work"..

    Perfect example of what not to do in this game. Guys like this are dime-a-dozen so I'm sure it wont be long until they think up another ridiculous CB product..


    It's truly disheartening that our IM newcomers are learning from people like this..

    Skagenweb also promotes "thenovelnetwork" here and on CB but I'm afraid to touch it based on mypadmedia.

    that sucks - i cleared around 500 from one article that promoted mypadmedia last month alone - only one refund.

    Hasnt made a sale in 10 days - was wondering why...

    -edit- nevermind, just read the article, already knew it was PD content - many end users would never know how to get PD content w/o a service like mypadmedia - its no more a scam than Shamwoow is for selling $1 Chamois cloths for $20, it would be a little more ethical if there weren't lies about specific titles being available, i hadnt realized that.

    Considering how easy it is to refund at CB its hard to see what the big deal is. Your paying for information you didnt have before and if I was making $30+ on the deal I would have no reason to share the info.

    I have a free books for the ipad article/mini site it gets traffic but sucks for income. They love the membership site article though...
    The product has a 80% refund rate ? tried to look it up and cant find it on Cb right now ..still shows in analytics but cant find in marketplace - i had around a 5% refund rate - perhaps the affs are grossly misrepresenting the product before sending traffic?

    Ill be keeping my one article live - as it also has ebay and amazon links that offer the method of getting 20k PD books for only $2

    The starter of this thread just created this thread as revenge because I revealed him to a be MASSIVE scammer in this thread and quite a few people agreed -

    Check it out - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/shit-list/217749-pjmc84-should-banned.html

    myPadMedia is an extremely successful product that converts very well, and that negative review is almost 6 months old, and the site has changed a lot since then.

    Nobody had ever had a refund rate of 80% with this refund rate.

    Don't believe this guy's bullshit. He just wants revenge.

    Hey, I made around $500 with this product last month - just with one article and sticking a few links around on my ipad sites and articles.

    So Im happy.

    I checked out the site again yesterday, did you always have audio? did you split test whether the audio was helping conversion? IME - I lose customers with forced audio or video.

    Perhaps you can create some alternate landing pages?

    Dear PJMC please give me your affiliate ID so I can post your statistics for everyone to see and verify your claim that you had an 80% refund.

    Skagenweb: You are real low! I know its probably you giving me -reps here. But look at you @ -19 and sinking fast! If you are so confident in this product why don't you post a screenshot of the refund column on your CB vendor account?

    I keep seeing comments on various threads calling skagenwebs products scams because they think they're so crappy. Maybe they are a little bit crappy, but were supposed to be marketers here not consumers. His rep for it should be based on whether he tries providing tools and info to help his affiliates promote it, not whether people on the forum like the product itself. Most people on forums like bhw are pretty savvy about how easy it is to find that type of content for free, so of course if they buy it for themselves they might be disappointed. That doesn't mean the average consumer will see it in the same way.

    People slamming him about how much they hate the product are overlooking the fact that he isn't trying to sell it to you. What he's offering is a product you can promote to make some money. If you're not making any money with it, or you have too high a refund rate then you should take a closer look at who your promoting it to. From what I've seen skagenweb has quite a bit of marketing material on his sites for affiliates to use.

    He's also offered a lot of ideas and suggestions on how to market these products. That's what this forum is supposed to be about. This is a blackhat forum so you're going to find a lot of things that might be pretty crappy for the consumer, but are great ways to make money promoting them. A blackhat forum might not be the best place for people that really have a big problem with that.

    The market these products are targeted at aren't the same people that use bhw. Plain and simple these products are targeted to consumers... people that love to get the newest gadget and then find as many ways as they can to use it for fun. They aren't looking for ways to make money on the internet, they make their money offline and come online looking for entertainment. These products give them a way to spend money buying one more thing for their new gadgets.

    This isn't the kind of thing I'd purchase myself, so I can't say how good the products is. My guess is that I wouldn't be all that impressed, I don't pay for the type of content that it provides access to. That doesn't mean there aren't a lot of people out their that will still happily buy and use it. I know how to find things like that myself for free, but most of the people I know offline don't. It simply amazes me how hard it is for them to find the simplest things online. If it isn't on facebook they don't have a clue how to find anything. They come across things like this all the time and are totally happy with them.

    So rather than judging skagenweb by whether I think his product is useful to me personally, I'm looking a little more at his efforts to provide tools and information on how to market the products. I don't come to bhw to look for things to buy, I'm here to find things to promote and ways to promote them. It's definately a product for a hot market and from everything I've read, as a vendor skagenweb tries to offer whatever help he can.

    If I start promoting this and make some money with it then I'll be happy. If I'm not able to make any sales with it then I'll find something else. Either way it seems like skagenweb is making a good effort to provide support to the affiliates.

    So here's some +rep for you skagenweb for trying to provide tools and info for your affiliates the way a good cb vendor should.
