Can Setup My Products Really Help Beginners Build Their List And Generate Sales
Or Is It A Hype-Fill Dream? Read This Review To Find Out!
Fresh from the mind of prolific and enterprising internet marketer Aaron Danker (aka TipTopMarketer) comes SetupMyProducts, a brand new turnkey software solution that promises to leave both IM beginners and seasoned marketing pros in awe at how effortlessly it can build them a dynamic, full-fledged, profit-pulling sales funnel – in just a matter of hours. Yes, hours.
The Art of the Sales Funnel
Anyone who has spent even five minutes in the Internet Marketing niche quickly learns that the email list is where the true profits are, but how many people know just how to create a complete and robust sales funnel designed to effectively capture, then market to those highly-valued email leads in first place? The “experts” all make it sound so easy, but in truth it takes a ton of time, hard work, and trial and error to get it right.
Really, how many marketers out there actually understand how to design a high-converting squeeze page – the first piece of the puzzle – that reels in subscribers by the bushel? How many of these so-called “gurus” out there know how to grab front-end profits by creating and marketing a professionally done, tantalizing one-time offer? And once the hard work of putting together a profitable list together is done, how many marketers have the experience, savvy, and know-how to take those same subscribers, and transform them into a highly motivated affiliate sales force that’ll basically create a viral marketing system for them?
Even if this all sounds too good to be true, it’s exactly what SetupMyProducts is offering –a fully automated sales funnel, where the only thing you add is the traffic (Aaron even helps you with that – more on this later). With this product release, Aaron, with years of experience as a successful internet marketer, has applied his in-depth knowledge to design a software package that expertly creates and automates all the essentials of a high-quality sales funnel, A to Z. From the products, squeeze page, OTO’s, upsells, downsells, and Aweber email campaigns, SetupMyProducts has it all – and even has a few extras thrown in for good measure. In this review, we’ll briefly go over the installation process, and examine the key components of SetupMyProducts to see if they really deliver what they promise. Then I’ll give my overall impression of the software, the positives and negatives, and some final thoughts.
Once you make your purchase ($97 at the time of this writing) at the JVZoo checkout page, you’re redirected to the “setup” form where you then enter your server information such as IP, username, password, etc. Then you’re asked to submit your Aweber credentials, along with the URL of the website where you’ll host the installation. Granted, handing over such sensitive information may give some subscribers pause, but the Aaron Danker brand is well-known and trusted within the IM industry and besides, you can simply change your passwords as soon the installation has completed. Once that’s done you’ll get a confirmation message that the install is underway. In the meantime, you’ll also have access to the traffic building bonus piece I reference earlier, Trafftastic, which was also created by Aaron and his team. Trafftastic is a ten-module traffic-building video course that can serve as sort of a primer to implementing the actual sales funnel, since the fully automated nature of SetupMyProducts pretty much leaves traffic building as your only task anyway.
Next, within 24 hours you’ll receive an email from Aaron’s team confirming that the installation process has been completed. You’re also given the URL for your resources page, which includes links to all the pages in your funnel – squeeze page, OTO’s, upsells, downsells, affiliate links, etc., as shown below:
As you go further down the page, you’ll see more information, links, and details:
Continue to scroll down the page to see more information, more resources, and more links:
And so on and so forth. The system is built from the ground up, so it’s indeed a turnkey solution as advertised. All you do is point traffic at the squeeze page, and the funnel is ready to go.

My initial thoughts after taking a cursory look at this software package were these: How can they offer this gargantuan package of goodies for only $97? Is there a catch to this whole thing, or am I skimming over the fine print and disclaimers? Why are Aaron and his team giving away this treasure trove of knowledge and expertise for so little? To understand where I’m coming from here, take a look at some of the features that SetupMyProducts touts:
- Professional quality squeeze page
- A bundle of high-quality PLR internet marketing products to sell/offer as freebies
- Professionally crafted one-time offer pages with enticing sales language and top-shelf graphics
- Branded PDF reports that you can sprinkle your own affiliate links throughout
- Affiliate program that offers your subscribers 100% commission when they promote your products as an affiliate
- Ready-made Aweber e-mail campaign to promote products on the back end of the funnel
And those are just a handful of the many features that SetupMyProducts offers, all for $97.
The list of positives for this product is, quite frankly, ridiculously long. I’m still trying to figure out how they’re letting this software package go for under a hundred bucks, for one thing. Regardless, I’ll try to outline a few of the main ones here.
Knowledge & Expertise
To me, this is the most valuable thing you get for your $97. When you think about a properly done, profit-pulling sales funnel, you realize that it must have several key components to work effectively:
- A professionally done squeeze/capture page with the right mix of sales elements. The squeeze page you get with SetupMyProducts has all the bells and whistles, including a countdown timer to create a sense of scarcity, professionally done images and graphics, organized bullet points, brightly colored arrows and highlights to draw attention to important text, multiple opt-in boxes and the most important thing, compelling sales text. You would have to either pay a professional, or be one yourself to get the artistic and copywriting skill on display here.
- Opportunistic upsell and downsell one-time offers. These provide an opportunity to grab a few sales at the front end of the funnel, and capture leads that might have turned down the initial offer. Again, with the upsell and downsell pages in the SetupMyProducts sales funnel, you’re basically getting all the same quality elements you have on the squeeze page as far as professionally done images, graphics and cover art, compelling sales text, etc.
- Seamless autoresponder integration. Once you capture the leads through your squeeze page, you definitely want to market to them via email afterwards, which is the back end of the sales funnel. SetupMyProducts, amazingly, has an entire email campaign set up for you once you start getting subscribers. In addition to the artistic/graphic and copywriting skill on display for both the squeeze page and the OTO’s, you also need to know how write an effective sales email – to get your subscribers either buying your products or clicking on your affiliate links (or even opening your email in the first place). Well, as you’ll see when you check out the free sample emails that Aaron has included in the Aweber campaign, the guy clearly knows what he’s doing in that department. You’d have to pay a professional copywriter a decent wage to get what Aaron is giving away for free here.
- Ready-made affiliate tie-ins. With both your paid products and free offers, you want to provide real value to your subscribers and make affiliate commissions in the process. With the SetupMyProducts funnel, there are a bunch of ready-made affiliate products for you to market that tie right into the freebies and paid offers you’re already disseminating to your subscriber list. In fact, Aaron even provides you a tidy list of JVZoo affiliate links for products you can market to your subscribers that they would naturally be interested in because they relate to the products you’ve already delivered. It really is brilliant marketing.
Of course this is not an exhaustive breakdown of the IM sales funnel, but it does highlight a few key components, and how this software works to capitalize on them. Once you really start delving into all of the information and links stuffed on the SetupMyProducts resources page, you’ll begin to see the hard work, marketing savvy and tremendous genius of Aaron Danker on full display. He gives you so much expository information, so many sales tips, and enough marketing tidbits that you’d have to try really hard not to make money with his system. You just look at the entirety of what he is offering, and you soon realize that this is a marketer who knows the game inside and out. Products and sales pages asides, his virtual tutelage is in and of itself worth far, far more than a hundred bucks in my opinion.
Free Traffic Building Course
I mentioned earlier that SetupMyProducts leaves the purchaser to generate their own traffic to the squeeze page, but even there Aaron leaves you in good hands. He grants you free access to his ten-module Trafftastic course (that retails for $97), which at first glance certainly has the appearance of a very comprehensive how-to guide designed to teach you how to build traffic the smart way. Covering such topics as SEO, Article Marketing, Social Bookmarking, Link Building and more, if this course is anything like what Aaron has produced thus far, you know it will be nothing if not comprehensive and professionally crafted. A key bonus here, in my opinion.
Affiliate Commissions Galore
By manually placing affiliate links from products found at Internet marketplaces (like ClickBank) throughout your paid and free materials, you are giving your subscribers both the value they seek, and opportunities to purchase additional materials that earn you solid commissions. By the time you’re done viewing all of Aaron’s sale materials and pitches, you’ll have a pretty solid working template on how to discreetly and effectively market your own affiliate links throughout any content you distribute.
Turn Your Subscribers Into Your Affiliates
Most of the better affiliate programs on the Internet offer somewhere between 25-50% commission on each sale that occurs via affiliate link. That’s a pretty nice piece of the pie, and offers the affiliate ample motivation to work hard to promote the product. So what happens when you give your affiliates 100% of the commission for promoting your products? Basically, you turn your subscribers into a highly motivated affiliate army that takes your squeeze page viral while you rake in boatloads of cash.
And this is exactly what SetupMyProducts offers in addition to all the other previously mentioned perks. You affiliates claim the entirety of any profits from each sale they promote, and you get to grow your subscriber list for additional back end opportunities. What’s even better, SetupMyProducts sets up the affiliate payment program for you through PayPal, and makes the payments to your affiliates without your direct involvement.
Last but not least, your new affiliates get access to all sorts of traffic building resources such as pre-done sales emails, sales articles and blog posts, popular IM forums to comment at and leave signatures embedded with links back to the squeeze page, social media messages, promotional banners and ads, and even the Trafftastic course at a huge discount from the retail price. So not only does SetupMyProducts help turn your subscribers into motivated affiliates, it also transforms them into knowledgeable marketers and salespeople. Really, can you ask for more?
Strategically Placed Exit Pop-ups
SetupMyProducts is relentless when it goes about its work of capturing leads, and it uses exit pop-ups expertly to that effect. Strategically placed on several pages when a visitor decides to close a window, they reel them back in with even more tantalizing deals and offers. And of course, each additional sales pop-up page has the same super high-quality graphics, sales copy, and marketing panache as the previous ones.

As I have not yet ran a full-fledged campaign or implemented any of the previously outlined traffic building strategies, I can’t yet say what negatives I might encounter. One thing that’s not really a negative, but may be overwhelming to a novice is just how much information there is to absorb. Yes, this is indeed a turnkey software solution as promised, but there is traffic building and sales strategies galore to learn and implement. In fact, this review, although in-depth, has covered only the basics of SetupMyProducts, as there is a ton more features that this review hasn’t explored. Besides, even if you’re not a novice at internet marketing, there will be somewhat of a learning curve here, as part of the brilliance of Aaron’s system is how multi-layered it is. A little patience and a willingness to learn will go a long way towards getting you the results that SetupMyProducts promises.
As an aside, if you choose not to edit and/or put your own unique spin on some of the free content and templates you get with this package, you run the risk of having a subscriber receive the exact same information that they’ve seen elsewhere (PLR materials make up a large portion of the content) or gotten from another internet marketer. So there may be a tad bit of content creation/editing involved at some point, but it doesn’t seem like it would be enough to really worry about.
Exit Pop-Up in the SetupMyProducts sales funnel
Simply put, it could take a beginner years to figure out and successfully implement all of the sales and marketing techniques contained in this single software package. Take it from someone who understands how many long hours you would spend even creating just the squeeze page here, 99% of the work is done for you. Not to mention the instant affiliate payment program and the Aweber campaign that’s already set up and ready to go by the time you receive your congratulatory email from Aaron’s team.
SetupMyProducts seems like an ideal software solution for both an internet marketing novice who is looking to quickly get their foot in the door and start making money online, and a more experienced marketing professional that simply doesn’t have the time (or expertise) to tweak, test, and refine their own sales funnel. Yes, there’s a lot of information to take in, but viewed in a different light, you are getting a $97 crash course on the “ins and outs” of internet marketing from one of the most knowledgeable IM guys in the field, Aaron Danker. So in short, for all you’re receiving for this incredibly paltry sum, I definitely give SetupMyProducts my seal of approval.
