After a year of procrastinating and not implementing Tiffany’s Guide To Cashing In On Shiny New Object Syndrome I have now made a lot of progress in the past week. In this post I am going to review my progress and what my thoughts are about the course and whether it is worth it and continuing on.
To give a final verdict on this course will need some more time to pass and work to be completed, so as the search engines find the blog and I start to rank, get visitors and people start to buy. I think a week is too early for all that to happen. My thoughts are that it would take a number of weeks/months for that to happen following this strategy to build a sustainable and profitable business.
All of this is to say I am now in a position to give a summary of what I like, don’t like and my recommendation as to whether it is worth investing money and time in implementing the guide, However, it will only be an interim conclusion rather than a final review as I will add more as I see the results accrue.
What Did I Like
The guide is written in an easy to understand style, that makes implementing it straightforward. There is none of the usual rigmarole you get with a number of courses that seem to have the aim of confusing you and leaving you needing to buy something more to “turbocharge” your results.
The step by step process works well. There is minimal cost in implementing the steps over and above the cost of the shiny new objects you buy or will buy in the future anyway.
Over and above what you learn to make money with the course, it helps you evaluate what you are thinking of buying and may help you to save money too by not wasting on course and products you won’t use.
I also enjoyed the emphasis on being honest and being yourself along with the “just get on with it” tone that comes across. Also there is none of the false promises you that comes across from some products especially in their sales pages where they tell you that if you follow this course you can do no work and wake up a millionaire in the morning after buying their course!
What I Didn’t Like
There were some small things I thought were missing from the guide rather than anything I didn’t like. Although the setting up of the blog is described very well in the guide I think the use of a video or more diagrams may help any one who hasn’t done it before. But it is pretty easy to find more in depth instructions and videos online that can help if more instruction is required.
There is little discussion about SEO and getting traffic to your blog by building backlinks (which is refreshing) but it does feel a bit like “if you build it they will come” like in the Field Of Dreams film. And this is probably my main concern as from what I’ve seen elsewhere you normally need to give the search engines some help in ranking your blog. Having said that when I search The Guide To Cashing In On Shiny Object Syndrome I am ranking on page 2 of Google less than a week after first posting. (However, there are minimal searches for this term.) We will have to give it time to test this.
How Did It Measure Up To The Promises Of The Sales Letter
As discussed in Part 1 of my review I was expecting to get from the course the following:
1. Something that helps me with my buying addiction
2. A way to help me to implement what I learn from any courses
3. Make money from buying Shiny New Objects
From what I’ve seen so far points 1 & 2 have definitely covered by adding a new discipline when making a buying decision (well now I make a conscious one) and following on from that you then hold yourself accountable by discussing how you are going on your blog.
As for Part 3 this is still a work in progress. However,I can see there is a possibility that money can be made putting this course to work either from talking about the products bought or by properly implementing.
Results So Far
As of today I have set up a blog and I am writing on a consistent basis, and have seen my rankings for the first review on the 2nd page of Google – so maybe no backlinking will work along with consistent and regular posting.
I enjoyed this course and I learned a great deal about how to analyze products and review them in an open and transparent way. The fact it helps in implementing what you buy and analyze results, keeps you accountable is another big plus.
It is too soon to tell if this method will create an income stream for me yet, as it needs more time and effort for it work (as anything worthwhile does).
At this stage I am hopeful that it will deliver results on its own but it should help me earn money from the Shiny New Objects I have bought (and not implemented) and any I may buy in the future by being held accountable by writing this blog.
My conclusion is that Tiffany Dow’s Guide To Cashing In On Shiny New Object Syndrome is a very good course for newbies and those struggling to make money online, and even some experienced internet marketers could learn something from it. You can check it out here.
I will update my review as time goes on to let you know if traffic and sales etc. start to happen – as and when they do or at least at the 3 month and 6 month mark.
