Developed by Travis Stephenson, Commission Jailbreak creates websites to earn affiliate marketing and ad revenue income.
At its core Commission Jailbreak claims to be able to create websites that can be used out of the box to start generating income. The websites themselves are designed to use “viral traffic” although there is no real information on how you get this. It looks like the creator has looked at the number of views that viral videos get on YouTube (which he mentions quite frequently) and reached the conclusion that those views can be redirected to another website that shares the content. This could hypothetically generate the traffic that Commission Jailbreak is supposed to attract but the majority of viral videos are spread based on the source rather than other sites.
Moving on from the potential flaws in the system the other side is slightly sounder. The idea of harnessing this traffic to generate ad revenue and create opportunities for affiliate marketing definitely has some potential in terms of making money. It is simply the method of gaining traffic that seems questionable. On a positive note Commission Jailbreak say you do not have to worry about hosting costs as it seems they deal with hosting.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
The software is for sale at the price of $39.95 and this gives you a lifetime license for the software and hosting costs. There is a 60 day money back guarantee although your site will be take down if you take the refund. Travis claims to have made more money in the last 2 years using his system than most people would make in 25 years. Further to this he claims that users can make as much as $15,000 per day using Commission Jailbreak.
Does the product provide value for money?
When stripped down Commission Jailbreak is a website that is about making websites. The sites themselves do not need to be overly complex due to the nature of them (i.e. a platform for sharing content). This same service could very easily use a blogging platform such as WordPress without the associated costs. Given what is actually on offer with a little bit of effort users could probably create a similar setup for free.
To me there are two issues with Commission Jailbreak. One is the reliance on viral traffic which, as the creator points out in his sales pitch, cannot be controlled which means it can’t be directed either. The second is that the software that generates the websites already fundamentally exists for free in the form of blogging sites. It boils down to what was said earlier. With a little effort you could probably create a similar set up for free, so why pay for it?
