How 12SecondCommute Works?

12 Second Commute attempts to put all the necessary marketing tools and training in one place, and tries to make online marketing as easy as possible. One thing this product surprises me with are its bundle of tools and features, consisting of its own 12 Second Commute autoresponder.

Nonetheless, they focus on helping you to properly get set up as an affiliate marketer with a good foundation of your own to rely on. The fact it is not so much in business just for itself and profit, does say some good things about them.

However, one thing I do not like about 12 Second Commute is how it leaves out some important and vital information.

Additionally I do not like the approach it takes on by having to solely rely upon e-mail marketing. Essentially that’s what they’re all about in this case and is why their so heavily focused on their autoresponder and capture pages.

In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate does a much better job, by showing individuals the importance of traffic. The reason for this comparison is to show you and bring up this potentially concerning question, what happens ‘if’ you are unable to attain the proper e-mails?

Nonetheless, it is good to see that 12 Second Commute offers a product that also shows you the importance of having and creating your own website. Although, there are some problems and disadvantages, with their attempt in simply wanting you to slap up a bunch of Clickbank banners. I have visited a few websites that are affiliated with 12 Second Commute, and while they do offer some valuable content and information, it simultaneously lacks professionality. The majority of websites seem to write a post, and then simply slap up 100 different Clickbank banners all around the site.

Personally, I find this to be too ineffective for me and not of much value to the visitor.

12 Second Commute Overview

Furthermore, 12 Second Commute’s intentions are indeed good!

Yes, I am surprised myself to even be saying this, with the massive number of scams out there today, especially after leaving its homepage only to notice how extremely bland it was. But, they do offer a great range of tools, some great one-on-one support, and a bit of extensive training.

Although, another problem I have come to see with 12 Second Commute, is it doesn’t take you through the proper steps of really showing you how to create your website effectively. Besides that, I believe you can make some great online success for yourself, if you’re willing to work hard and persistently at it. But if you happen to still be on the fence and don’t know how to best get situated with affiliate marketing, definitely take a look at my top recommendation.

The reason I would not prefer 12 Second Commute for myself, is probably because I am a ‘Wealthy Affiliate,’ after all! And that’s a difficult one to top. I’ll tell you this though, if there was no Wealthy Affiliate, then I believe I’d definitely give myself a go with 12 Second Commute.. Luckily I don’t need to take my chances! As a result I have been shown the ropes of becoming an affiliate marketer the best way possible, which I also believe you can, and should too.

Verdict: Legit!
Rank: 78/100

If for some reason you feel more inclined of really wanting to be an e-mail marketing expert, rather than creating your own authoritative website in any niche you can imagine, then you may want to stick with 12 Second Commute. In my honest opinion, you’d do better off with Wealthy Affiliate, no matter the circumstance!

    I used 12 second commute and while doing a promotion and attempting to update my promotion I could not get access. When I contacted the administrators I was told that they had deleted some accounts as is their custom. This had happened before and it was reinstated but after the second episode I abandoned this site.
    I could not afford to have my promotions curtailed by a company for whatever their reason was. I am with another company and am getting better service and thankfully no deletion and later reinstatement.

      That’s very shady of them. I’m surprised 12 second commute would go as far as to cancel your account and it’s not like you did anything wrong. This is just bad practice and just comes to show how careful we have to be of the products we join and choose to promote. I’m glad you found a more reputable and legitimate company to work with!

    Help me get in contact with Daryl Graham, please. What’s going on with Ultimate License site? The money that I paid for this at the beginning and emails sent by Daryl of the confirmation of receipt of monies paid/received and the time spending inside this account, once again, another marketer has done the dirty and you cannot tell me that it takes 3 months to get an answer from customer support if they didn’t have something to hide. I am glad that I didn’t spend anymore money in subscribing to 12secondcommute. Marketers have to take notice if a customer who has purchased their product and if they are unhappy to attend to it as soon as possible or otherwise, something like this is appearing of dissatisfaction.

      Hi Warren, I’m sorry but I do not have the contact information of Daryl Graham. Sorry these guys from 12 Second Commute scammed you. I really wish there was something I can do. If they aren’t even contacting you back, then one step you can take is if you paid with PayPal you can file a PayPal dispute. Their really good at refunding money if you happened to get scammed. Reason being they would rather pay you than be responsible for being associated with a scam like this. Otherwise, I’m really sorry for the poor experience you had. If you need anything else just let me know, thanks Warren!
