I have long been a "fan" of
For over two years, I shelled
out $95 per month for "The Reese Report" (it cost me
nearly $2,500 in that time).
I also own his highly detailed
(and expensive) "Traffic Secrets 2.0" course. The massive
box with all the CDs and manuals is by my side as I write this.
John is a "mega marketer",
but he's not remote in the way that some of the big guns are (to
name no names!). And he and his team have the knack of knowing what
we "little guys" want and need.
"Opportunity.com", he has homed in on what many people
need help with.. affiliate marketing.
Many people start off in internet
marketing by selling as an affiliate. You don't need any products
to sell. Heck, you don't even need a website or a mailing list (although both
of those are useful).
And even when people do start selling
their own stuff, they continue to sell as an affiliate. I do. And
a good proportion of my income comes from affiliate marketing.
It's a membership site which delivers
a huge range of services aimed at helping people become skilled affiliate
marketers. Let me give you a quick video tour of what's inside
the Members Area. Click the image below to view the video:

Quick Summary Of The Main Areas
The Membership Area:
This might seem to be a minor part of
the service. In fact, I rate it as one of the most important parts!
When I was a subscriber to John Reese's monthly "Reese Report", one
of the sections which I most looked forward to was where he highlighted
3 or 4 niches each month, and showed you how to capitalise on these
niches with content-filled blogs or websites. Many of these niches
I would never have thought of myself.
In Opportunity.com, the "News" section
does the same job, only with the emphasis being on affiliate niches
and niche products. And the information seems to be flowing on a
regular basis, not just being updated once per month as with the
I've seen quite a few affiliate directories
in my time, but none have been as comprehensive as the "Find Offers"
section in Opportunity.com. I'm particularly impressed by the wide
number of affiliate networks that John and his team are monitoring.
I get regular updates from Commission
Junction, and I frequently scan the new products that appear on ClickBank.
But there's no way that I could check the huge range of networks
covered in the "Find Offers" section of Opportunity.com.
I also like the way the directory is organised,
and the way that you can "drill down" to find out more about niches
and individual products in the niches.
This is a neat way of tucking away gems
that you find in the directory, all ready for you to take action
at some fut ure date. It's very easy, after drilling down to an individual
product, to add it to "My Opportunities". One click of a button
is all you need to do.
Mind you, I can see that, unless I'm disciplined
in the way I use this device, "My Opportunities" could easily get
clogged up. But there is a way, if you do accumulate a lot
of stuff in this area, to sort your listings by category (= niche),
by date or by sale / lead.
In theory this is a good way of making
sure that you keep up to date with what new products appear in
specific niches. But I'm not sure that I'll be using this a lot -
and I'm surprised that there seems (at present) not to be a way of
showing what Alerts you have set up.
I have become used to John Reese's training
videos from the time when I used to get his "Reese Report". Another
feature of the monthly subscription was videos which supported the
written content of the newsletter (which cost $95 per month!).
The quality of the videos in the Training
Center (and there are nearly 40 of them at the time of writing) is
equally high - if not better.
Some of the material was not new to me.
Some was an eye-opener, such as the video on getting the most out
of Compete.com. But then that's what I'd expect, because Opportunity.com
is aimed at both experienced affiliate marketers and newcomers alike.
The former just lets you change your email
address and password. The latter simply leads to a support desk,
where you can open a ticket and get one-to-one help.
I Like About Opportunity.com
This has got tremendous
potential for being a vast area of niche research, as the site develops.
It's still very new at the time of writing, but already there are
in-depth reports on eight niches, and they seem to be added to on
almost a daily basis.
using this, I found that I could, very quickly, get the precise
details of individual products in my selected niches. This is a huge time-saver,
and a great research tool.
I like the neat way
you can add a specific affiliate product to "My Opportunities" with
a single click - and then organise the entries inside "My Opportunities".
of the main problems facing affiliate marketers is how to get visitors
to the sites where they have their affiliate links - and make sure
that these are "targeted visitors". A lot of the video training covers
traffic building, using a wide number of methods. And for newcomers
to affiliate marketing, (who maybe think that sticking a load of
advertising banners on a site is OK!), the introductory videos are
On balance, I think that Opportunity.com
is an excellent service, and one that I'll be subscribing to for
many months to come. But there are a few things that niggle me. I'm
sure that most of them will be sorted out very soon (I've raised
a support ticket about some of the issues):
There's been some poor
proof reading, resulting in duplicated descriptions of the videos
and some errors in descriptions of a few individual affiliate products.
The fact that you can't see
what alerts you've already set up.
The "Reese Report"
was backed with an excellent forum, which produced some lively discussion
and exchange of ideas. I'd like to see a similar forum intruduced
for Members of Opportunity.com
OK, this didn't really bother me, but I'm the sort of person
who starts to use software and only reads the manual when I get stuck!
I think that some people would benefit from some simple guidelines
on how to get the best out of the Members Area.
As I said, these are fairly minor niggles
(except for the lack of a forum), and I think that they'll get sorted
out in the not-too-distant future.
