If you’re reading this, then you’re probably looking for a review on Google Sniper or looking for a way to make money online. I’ve done plenty of product reviews in the past and even done a couple specifically on Google Sniper. It’s hard for me not to want to talk about this George Brown product because that is essentially where I got my humble beginnings in internet marketing. I will say that I was one of the lucky few internet marketers that started making pretty good money right off the bat, with this method. That was 2012, however, and not all things that worked then work now. Luckily, Google Sniper was updated since then with a 3.0 version. Sounds like a software program.
Don’t consider this a review so much as the most in depth analysis of Google Sniper you will ever come across.
(NOTE: if you’re looking for a quick yes or no to “Is it worth it?” Go away, it isn’t for you. In fact, making money at home or internet marketing in general isn’t for you. This line of work, and it is work, isn’t for anyone looking for the easy way out. Instead, go look up Gary Vaynerchuk or Alex Becker and listen to them for a while and understand that what you get directly correlates to what you put in. Quick riches isn’t why I’m passionate about internet marketing. I’m passionate about internet marketing because it one of the only industries that allows me to be in total control of my life. It is also one of the only industries that rewards me for my effort and skill. You can sit behind a desk and work for someone else and be the best at whatever it is you do, and what do you get? A pay raise? Even if it were something as large as a ten dollar raise, you’re still working for someone else. The fact of the matter is, is that you are making them more money per hour than you are earning yourself, and you can bet it is A LOT more.
That being said, if you find fulfillment in working for someone else or you’re content with that – more power to you. Nothing wrong with that. Just don’t get delusional about what it takes to have a self-sustaining career in this industry.)
What does Google Sniper have to offer?
Google Sniper is intended to teach beginners how to make money online, or at least one of the more common methods to earn money on the internet – which is affiliate marketing by way of making websites for the sole purpose of reviewing a specific product and affiliating to that product. It’s basically the same as a door to door salesman getting commissions for selling whatever product they’re pitching.
The beauty of affiliate marketing is that you don’t have to go “door to door” and bother people. Instead, they’ll find you. Or rather, that’s how it works in theory.
To lay it all out in specific, this is all the things that Google Sniper teaches – in the order that it teaches. (Disclaimer: It has been a while since I used Google Sniper – So some stuff may be out of order.)
- Picking a product
- Picking a keyword
- Picking a domain
- Setting up WordPress
- How to write high converting content
- Website structure
- Making a YouTube video
- Ranking the website
- Scaling up
- Picking a product – This is fairly straightforward and the method that George teaches on product picking is specific to Google Sniper. That being said, there are some extremely useful tips included in here that I still use to this day – even when I’m not following this method. 8/10
- Picking a keyword – Keyword research – it is one of the most underestimated necessities for beginner online marketers. The information covered in this section will give you the knowledge you need to do the job right, but don’t expect to take this method of keyword research and use it in other ventures later on. I don’t despise it, as an all inclusive course on keyword research would come with as big of a price tag as Google Sniper 3.0 itself. 7/10
- Picking a domain and setting up WordPress – I’m lumping these two into the same section since they both tie into each other. This part really is for the absolute zero experience beginner, as anyone who’s stuck with internet marketing for more than a week most likely knows the ins and outs of website building and especially WordPress. There’s only so much that can be taught about this and George Montagu Brown covers about as much as possible. Montagu – let that roll off your tongue a few times. 8/10
- How to write high converting content – This is where Google Sniper shines brightest. George boasts about being able to convert traffic at a staggering 20% CTR (Click through rate) which is impressively high. Despite being a beginner when I first took this course, I knew enough to be skeptical of those stats. Upon going through this section, I was certainly impressed with the knowledge he shares but not enough to believe his rates. The very first site I made had an average CTR of 22% – which I was purely overwhelmed by. I’ve yet to find a better foundation for high conversion content, and doubt I will. 10/10
(NOTE: Upon gaining much more experience and knowledge, I went back and expanded upon the foundation that he laid out and pushed the average CTR to around 35%. Beat that Brown. It really goes to show that his methodology for content is the shining gem within Google Sniper.)
- Website structure – While there are somethings that can be taken from this section and applied to all sorts of ventures, it is mainly particular to Google Sniper. Nice and simple; easy to follow and hard to screw up. Though people manage, from time to time. 7/10
- Making a YouTube video – This section in particular has been heavily enhanced in the latest update and has added more value to the course. Even with the added info, I feel like he left out a couple of important ingredients. 6/10
- Ranking the website – This section is fairly detailed and works well with the Google Sniper method. The information laid out does well with other tactics as well. Again, much of it are things I use in most of my other strategies. However, with all the complexities of SEO and an ever changing Google algorithm, it’s hard to say what is a surefire method these days. 6/10
- Scaling up – This is kind of a no brainer; rinse and repeat. George Brown adds on some useful info as well as some food for thought. 6/10
The course comes in the form of a downloadable PDF as well as several instructional videos that go along with it. The eBook is over 100 pages total and is packed with fruitful information and along with the videos, there is literally no way any semi-educated individual should screw this up. However, it happens from time to time.
Now that we’ve covered the course, let’s take care of the rest. Rest? Yeah, it’s kind of ridiculous how much is included with Google Sniper.
The Member’s Area
There’s two main things you’ll notice when you first enter the members area – aside from the corny welcome video. One is Sniper X and two is the Rolodex.
Sniper X – This feature in the member’s area is arguably the biggest attraction. It is a weekly webinar/video series that goes over different case studies as well as Q&As. Each case study showcases a new “Sniper Site” created by members of GS. Usually presented by George Brown or other highly esteemed guests. The case studies go over stats, strategies, and a close overall analysis of how the site is performing and how it can be improved upon. Not only is it very entertaining, but also insightful.
The Q&As are self explanatory. Popular questions are presented to George Brown, and he answers them.
The Rolodex – This is essentially a roundup of the most useful resources available to beginning and experienced internet marketers alike. Pretty much everything you’ll need to continue on your journey and expand your career.
Google Sniper was originally released in 2010 and has remained one of the top online marketing courses ever since. So how does that happen? In a market that is CONSTANTLY being over saturated with product after product being released by big names in the industry, how does GS manage to stay on top? The answer is obvious. It’s because it packs one hell of a punch when it comes to value. It’s past the point of whether or not it’s worth it – it’s reached the point of being something that every internet marketer should have access to (beginner or advanced).
What do I consider “worth it”? It’s simple really, do you get a positive ROI? If you pay $47 for this course, do you make $47 back? How much more do you make back? Well, if you follow the course as instructed, you should make more money than you put in. Keyword – SHOULD.
Now, I’m not going to get on the hype train or anything. Because I can’t promise that YOU will be successful at this. If YOU have the motivation and patience to see this through to the end, you can reap the rewards. If you don’t, you won’t.
Keep in mind, that the majority of internet marketers FAIL. If you don’t put in the work, for whatever reason, you will fail. So ask yourself, “can I do that? Can I sit in front of a computer and force myself to work? Or will I just fuck off on Facebook or waste time playing a video game?”
(EDIT: Forgot to mention it has a 60 day money back guarantee. Even if you find that this product is a flop or not for you, you can simply request a refund within the two month time period.)
