Best Products of 2015 Q3

Each quarter since 2014 Q4 I come out with I say I’m going to come out with a list of the best products released in that quarter. Unfortunately, I missed Q1 and Q2 because I got sidetracked I was lazy (let’s be honest).

What I consider to be the best products of 2015 Q3 has nothing to do with that product’s sales, price tag, or even it’s current availability. I choose these products based on how useful they are from my own perspective.

That said, there might have been some incredible Amazon or Ecommerce products released in the past quarter, but you will not see them on my list because it’s not my niche or expertise.

In other words, these are all products that have become part of my business and made my job easier. Ultimately, the goal of most products is either going to be teaching (if it’s a course) or it’s going to be helping people save time by giving us a tool to work more efficiently and/or accomplish things they wouldn’t be able to do manually.

Now, before we get into this, I’d like to mention that I reviewed 70(!) products in 2015 Q3 and I’ve chosen the top 5 titles from that relatively large group, so you can be sure these are going to be some pretty badass products.

And with that said, here are my Top 5 Products in 2015 Q3 (in no particular order):

 

Top 5 Products of 2015 Q3

Qilio 2.0

Let me start by saying Qilio 2.0’s product creators stopped giving commissions to affiliates like me after their launch week in August. So even though my review ranks #3 on Google I receive $0 for every sale and even though I’m a little bitter about that, I have to give credit where it’s due because this list is not about who’s paying me commission, it’s about the best products of 2015 Q3 and Qilio 2.0 is one of them. I’ve always understood the importance of maintaining social profiles for my money sites, particularly the importance of having a Facebook page, but it’s hard to find the time to do this when we are already so focused and invested on everything involved with building and maintaining an authority website. Well, Qilio 2.0 is a brilliant software that I would highly recommend because it automates the process of updating and monetizing your Facebook fan pages and it’s completely free. And by “free” I mean there’s nothing to buy after you have the Qilio 2.0 software (which isn’t free). Qilio is also the first of its kind because the developers actually had to receive special permission from Facebook’s development team to allow this system of scheduling out automated posts to your fan page in advance. And by doing so, you can automate the process of publishing interesting and engaging content to your fan pages that will generate more viewers and fans without lifting a finger on your end. Put it this way, my #1 competitor does this and I’ve always wondered how the heck he did it. Well, he’s not using Qilio, but Qilio can do the same thing. So it’s nice to know he just lost his unfair advantage and at the same time there’s an unfair advantage available to anyone that wants to take it 😉
Explaindio 2.0

So there’s Explaindio 2.0 and there’s Easy Sketch Pro 3.0. Both are good softwares in my opinion because they make it possible for people like me to be able to create whiteboard animation videos (and I could NEVER do it any other way without paying someone). But Explaindio 2.0 is just the more “polished” product between the two with a sleek interface and lots of features. You can create some really cool marketing videos with Explaindio 2.0 that can keep your audience engaged which leads to better conversion rates. And you can do this instead of spending lots of money on marketing videos. I haven’t used Explaindio as much as I’d like to, but so far I’ve created Intros and Outros that I’ve been using on just about every video I’ve uploaded to YouTube since its release. If I was doing this list in order, Explaindio 2.0 could very well be my #1 choice…
WP Link Shield

If you’ve been an affiliate marketer long enough, you will not be unfamiliar with the feeling of losing sales because of browser cookies. In other words, there’s always going to be a small and unfortunate percentage of sales that you will refer through your website without getting your cut. It can be a variety of reasons. For instance, you might have read Mike From Maine’s review before reading my review and even though you ultimately purchased through my website, Mike gets my credit. Stuff like that. Well, WP Link Shield puts an end to that with a system that I still don’t quite understand because I didn’t even know it was possible. Basically you can cloak any affiliate link and when someone clicks the link, instead of redirecting to the corresponding sales page URL, it stays on YOUR link but loads the sales page. By preventing the redirection you lose the risk of losing credit for sales and another REALLY cool perk that I discovered with WP Link Shield is that you can actually run Facebook Ads directly to sales pages now because of this system (which is no longer possible with regular affiliate links). So guess what I use every single time I want to run a Facebook Ads campaign and don’t feel like creating a landing page (because I really don’t know how to create a decent landing page anyway).
SqueezeFunnels

I spent a lot of money on SqueezeFunnels because I think I bought every single OTO and usually I don’t go for the OTO’s. Despite all the excitement I have towards this product, I haven’t even used it yet! But I have good reason for not using it yet… the time hasn’t come.  SqueezeFunnels is a drag-and-drop sales page builder (kind of like Instabuilder 2.0 which is just as good). And normally I would never have a product on this list if there’s already a similar product on the market, but there’s something else SqueezeFunnels bring to the table. Imagine having a library that includes the exact funnel pages used in several 6 figure product launches and they’ve been converted to templates that you can easily modify. If you’re thinking that would take away a lot of the headaches that come with designing funnel pages (including a sales page, JV page, webinar page, etc) then you’re right. I purchased this because my next big goal in online marketing is to create my own product and when I do, I’m going to be very happy that I own SqueezeFunnels because it’s going to save me a ton of time and money and it’s a good feeling to know I’ll be creating my funnel pages from some of the most successful launch pages in the past year.
Article Buddy 3.0

article-buddy-3.0-100px
We’ve had enough article re-writers and spinners by now which is why I’m at the point where I’m fairly annoyed whenever a developer comes out with another one… unless it’s revolutionary… and I’ll put Article Buddy 3.0 in that category because it lets you take any video and convert it to an article or create 100% unique content from ezine articles. Now, being able to grab any video link and convert that to an article is really awesome because you can take any text article and spin it to death, but Google’s algorithms are so far ahead of it that you’re just wasting your time. But on the other hand, if you can turn a video into an article, you have yourself a text article that nobody has published in most cases which means you have yourself unique content in any niche on demand without spending any time to write it yourself.
