I’ll get right to the point – this product, called Arbicash, is not for everyone. It won’t be a good fit for you if you’re a complete newbie with no experience working with WordPress. It’s also not going to be a good fit for you if you don’t have a few hundred dollars to spend on advertising. This method is based on arbitrage – spending money to make money.
That said, the concept behind Arbicash is an interesting one, and it came along right about the time I was reading a blog post about the same concept at a marketing site I regularly visit. If you’re interested in reading about a system that could potentially send a lot of money your way, keep reading.
Read on for the full Arbicash review.
Arbicash is a multi-part training course that is largely comprised of ebooks in PDF format. There are also a couple of included videos, as well as multiple upsells that are both relevant to the main product and not. It’s quite a mix, but the basic course should be sufficient for most buyers.
When you buy Arbicash, you’ll receive the following:
- Arbicash book
- Extra video for non-arbitrage sites
- Revenue tracking spreadsheet
- Campaign tracking spreadsheet
- Content creation templates
- Google Trends video course
- Reddit Marketing Secrets training
There’s also a bonus training course called the “Newbie Accelerator Pack,” but again, I’m not sure this course is well suited to newbies.
So what is Arbicash all about? It’s a training program to show you how to build Websites that generate a lot of traffic and a lot of money by offering interesting and appealing content that might be likely to go viral. The key to this process is something called “native advertising,” and while you may not recognize the term, you’ve certainly seen the ads.
Native advertising is the name for those ads that you see at sites such as Buzzfeed or perhaps the Huffington Post that have clickbait-style headlines such as “10 Reasons She’s Ignoring You,” or “The 12 Craziest Photos You’ve Never Seen.” These headlines are usually accompanied by eye-catching photos, and a lot of people can’t resist clicking on them. If you look carefully, however, you might see a small block of text that says “sponsored content by Taboola,” or “Sponsored content by Outbrain.” These clever articles are actually advertising, and they’ll take you to another Website.
A number of sites have taken advantage of the popularity of these native ads by using them to drive traffic to their own sites, which are, in turn, covered with advertising. The business model is simple:
- Create clever content
- Buy native advertising on popular sites to bring people to your site
- Hope that enough people click on the ads on your site to pay for the ads you bought and provide a profit.
The process described in Arbicash is known as arbitrage. The process may sound a bit awkward, but this is a volume business. There are sites out there that literally earn tens of thousands of dollars per day with this method. That’s the upside. The downside, of course, is that to get enough to traffic to earn that kind of money, you have to spend a ton of money on advertising.
Fortunately, that’s something that you can grow into, once you understand the business model and get some practice. You will, of course, have to build a Website. You’ll also have to come up with some clever, eye-catching content that people can’t resist. And you’ll have to find some advertising that you can put on your own site that will generate enough revenue for you to make money.
That’s what Arbicash is all about. In the course, you’ll learn:
- Meet native ads
- What you will need
- Setting up your arbitrage Website
- Content research
- Article creation
- Monetizing your arbitrage Website
- Setting up traffic accounts
- Creating the ads
- Uploading your ads
- Managing campaigns
- Improving profitabilty
- Scaling up your business
In short, you’ll have to build a site, create content, buy ads, publish ads, and keep track of how everything is working. Fortunately, Arbicash covers all of this in detail, and the optional video training upsell will walk you through the whole process. It’s a lot to absorb, and as with any business model that involves paid traffic, there will be a learning curve. It takes time to figure out how to do this profitably, and that means learning what kind of content most easily attracts visitors and what kind of advertising will generate the most revenue for you.
The Arbicash book devotes a lot of time to helping you set up your WordPress site so that it looks professional. This is not a time to skimp on appearance; you want this site to look like it was created by a large corporation. The authors have created a special WordPress plugin called Native Ads Helper that can speed up the process, and the book also covers how to eventually outsource the process of creating content so that you won’t have to spend all of your time writing articles.
There’s a ton of content in the 62 page Arbicash book, and I was pretty impressed. I’d been tempted to try this method myself, but I’m simply too busy with various projects these days to give it a shot. That said, the Arbicash system is a solid, tried-and-true method that can work if you have the time, patience and resources to stick with it until it becomes successful.
Pros and Cons of Arbicash
- Well written book
- Explains everything in detail
- Lots of bonuses
- Lots of upsells
- Not all upsells are directly related to the product
The arbitrage model described in Arbicash is a lucrative one; I recently read about a site that used this business model that sold for several million dollars. That said, it’s not necessarily easy to make money this way, and it may take a while to make it successful. Arbicash offers a good explanation of the process and has some good suggestions for tools that can help. All in all, it’s a pretty good product, and one of the better ones I’ve reviewed lately.
