UPDATE: It turns out the software component of this was ‘borrowed’ from Code Canyon. This certainly explains why I found the product to be disjointed in my original review.
While some might argue that this is within the terms of service of an extended license on code canyon (which it isn’t, by the way), to me it’s effectively robbing the real software vendor of their hard earned cash.
On that basis, I cannot recommend purchasing this product.
Today I’m reviewing a new product called Viral Nova Pro.
Viral Nova Pro is a little strange – it’s a two part product:
- Part one is a high quality video training course covering setting up social media accounts and content syndication to gain viral traffic.
- Part two is a WordPress plugin that turns your site into an amazon affiliate site.
What is it?
Viral Nova Pro is a two part product. Part one is a high quality video training course covering setting up social media accounts and content syndication to gain viral traffic. Part two is a WordPress plugin that turns your site into an amazon affiliate site.
The combination is a little odd, and I think the sales material does the product a disservice. The training is high quality and I think everyone can potentially make use of it in their business. The Amazon plugin is pretty neat too, the built-in content spinner is a nice add on.
Is The Training Any Good?
I spent a few hours going through Jon’s training videos and I’m happy to report that they’re both comprehensive and easy to understand.
Jon went to great length to cover everything you need to know about setting up all the content syndication and social media accounts – no mean feat I can assure you!
For a lot of you, there are probably several videos you can skip, depending on your familiarity with different social networks. But it’s nice to know the content is there to fall back on if you’re ever scratching your head wondering how to get something done.
I think most people will find this useful, especially if you haven’t set up syndication or established social media accounts on all the major networks.
What About The Software?
Though I think the addition of an Amazon Affiliate site builder plugin was a little odd (the training alone is worth the asking price in my opinion), I’m happy to report that the WP plugin is a welcome addition.
I’ve recently promoted a couple of Amazon affiliate store builders as I think it’s a great business to get started. Some affiliates are making millions with Amazon alone and setting up a simple Amazon affiliate site can be done very rapidly with this plugin.
What I didn’t like was that the plugin requires you to install Woo Commerce. This isn’t really a huge complaint, as it makes A LOT of sense.. and Woo Commerce is free of course… it’s just one extra step that would have been nice to avoid. No biggie though!
What I thought was really cool though, was that the plugin has built-in spinning for content. This is a piece of the puzzle that most other site builders (or at least the ones I’ve looked at) lack. Why would you want this? Well, it’s simple.. if you’re simply copying content from Amazon, your site ain’t gonna stand a chance of ranking. By running the content through a spinner, you’ll stand a good chance of picking up a little long tail traffic. This traffic can really add up on a site with a lot of products, so it can help a lot when you’re starting out.
Overall, I think the software is a shining example of an Amazon affiliate site builder plugin. Two thumbs up here!
Overall, I like the product. It’s funny really – there are some products that feel kind of hashed together and I generally object to that. Viral Nova Pro, while being an unusual mix of a plugin + semi-related training, is in my opinion a great deal whether you’re after the software, the training, or both.
I don’t quite know why Jon decided to sell it like he did – most marketers would have simply offered either the software or the training as the “main” product, then tried to immediately upsell the other. Personally, I think Jon made a mistake by not doing this, as he left some money on the table (and made the sales material a touch more confusing in the process!).
But, Jon’s mistake is good for you and I, as we can pick up two products for the price of one.. no complaints about that!
