Welcome to my Shockwave Profits Review! You may have received an email with the heading”$125 daily within the next 24 hours?” which led you to the Shockwave Profits Sales page. The Sales page doesn’t tell you much about the system so it’s great that you are doing your research to find out exactly what this system is and whether you can make money using it.
I must congratulate you on being here before handing over your hard-earned cash. Many of my readers have now learned that everything they see on a Sales page needs to be taken with a pinch of salt.
This uncut review is unbiased – I’m not an affiliate of this product so I will reveal not only the positives but also any negatives I may find with this product which may cause you to not gain the results you so desire.
So, without further ado, let’s see what Shockwave Profits is all about …

What Is Shockwave Profits About
This system claims to be newbie friendly and doesn’t require any technical skills, no products or videos. The Sales pages say that it is a super simple system to earn some quick cash.
I have heard this time and time again that systems are simple and easy to use but once you have signed up, it’s a different story. The Sales Page doesn’t give much away as to what it is you will be doing, only that the owner made $125.78 in 24 hours with this Secret Shockwave Traffic Source.
However, unlike some of the other products and systems I have reviewed over the last few years, there wasn’t a lot of hype on the amount of money you can make. $125 in 24 hours is possible (they don’t tell you that you will be making this straight away) so shall we see how it all works? …
How Does Shockwave Profits Work
On entering the system, you will be presented with an Introduction video by Bill Hugnall who will explain what the system is all about. He also says that you need to put 110% effort into this to make this work for you, something which the majority of product owners don’t tell you – they tell you that you can make money right out the gate by pressing a few buttons or clicking the mouse a few times, so, this system sounds promising – they tell you what it takes; making money online requires your full commitment.
Anyways, with this system, you will have access to 10 over-the-shoulder video lessons. This is a complete system that focuses on Manychat (an autoresponder for Facebook Messenger) that you will use to build your list and send your affiliate promotions too.
The course is made up of 3 main parts:
Part 1: Setting up your funnel
Part 2: Building up a bot list and
Part 3: Using this bot list to send out affiliate promotions
You will be shown how to:
- set up a website,
- set up your ManyChat account
- set up your traffic magnet
- how to link it all together and
- how to drive free traffic to your funnel using Facebook groups
The training is OK but not really beginner friendly. Erik tells you that you need a website and that you need a page builder. He suggests that you go to Fiverr and pay for a gig for someone to install the Thrive Theme for you. What he doesn’t tell you, is that you need to purchase the theme first! The Thrive theme is good however, you don’t need this, there are many free page builder plugins that you can use. I use Elementor and that works well.
Besides, getting someone else to install tools for you, you’re not learning anything; you won’t know how the tools work which will mean you having to rely on others all the time which will cost you a pretty penny.
By building your website (which is basically a one-page landing page) visitors will opt-in to your Manychat list by you offering them a free gift such as a PDF guide, a short video course or something of ‘value’. Erik suggests you check out YouTube to get some ideas or search for PLR (Private Label Rights) products. When the visitor enters in their email list, you will then send out promotional offers to them in the future to make money. This method of making money online is Affiliate/Email marketing. It isn’t a new method and it requires time to earn money.
To begin with, if you’re building a new website, it’ll take time before Google and the other search engines know about it. The search engines love content so having a one-page website is not really going to cut it for you. A website needs traffic (people visiting it). Without traffic, there is no way you are going to add people to your list in order to make money. There are many ways to get traffic to your website – some paid and some free methods. If you are starting out, you probably have limited funds and would like to use as many free methods as possible.
Free methods include keywords and SEO. The Shockwave Profits system doesn’t teach any of these methods – they use Facebook groups. You will need to find groups that are in your niche and pick the top 3 groups with the most followers and join that group.
You will be posting your Free traffic magnet in these groups with an invite for them to request more information which will lead them to your opt-in page. Once they have opted in, you will send them to your offer.
However, you will need to have an offer in order to make money. The training is lacking in that it doesn’t tell you how to go about promoting products or services which is quite critical as without products and services to promote, you have nothing to offer to your list. What will be the driver for them opting in?
Is Shockwave Profits A Scam?
No it isn’t a scam. You do get something for your money and if you’re not happy with your purchase, you can request a refund. However, it isn’t beginner friendly. There is a section in one of the videos where Erik says if something didn’t work, then just go over the video again. He doesn’t even give an explanation as to why it may not work or any pointers on where you should go to fix it.
Anyways, as soon as you make your purchase, you are presented with the first upsell which they say will help you make the $125 quicker. If you click the link to say you’re not interested, they reduce the price from $27 to $17 and tell you that this price is time-sensitive to lure you into buying straight away. You don’t need to make a purchase. You can ignore these offers and continue on to download the product you have just purchased – Shockwave Profits.
However, they say they have another unique and Fresh method that can see you earning $200 to $300 each day that you can use side-by-side with Shockwave Profits.
Again if you say no, they reduce the price from $17 to $12. Still, I haven’t arrived at the page to download the system I purchased … You are presented with the third one time offer to purchase the resell rights to Shockwave Profits for $37. Again if you say no, they reduce it to $27
They then try to sell you another system where you can earn 5-figure days again with a discount if you say no.
Not quite there yet, you are then presented with an offer on how to build a highly profitable buyers list for $12. Yes, you get a discount of $5 if you say no.
Finally … you get access to download Shockwave Profits!
Many product owners use this tactic to try and squeeze a bit more money out of you. However as you can see, you don’t need to buy any of these ‘one-time-offers’. They are not mandatory. It is off-putting having to scroll past all of this to get to the product you have purchased!
Unethical techniques but still, you have people that like a reduced offer and may make a purchase. There is nothing wrong with the owner offering additional products.
- Some useful information
- Uses free traffic methods (Facebook groups)
- 30-day money back guarantee
- Legit method to make money online
- Not beginner friendly
- Hidden costs. You need to pay for hosting on Namecheap which will usually increase after a year. You will also need to buy the Thrive Architect theme and pay someone from Fiverr to install it.
- It will take some time for you to be earning $125+ each day (but it’s not impossible if you work hard)
- Bad advice on where to source your magnet offer (using PLR products)
- You are not given details of platforms to use to find products or services to promote
I hope my Shockwave Profits Review has given you enough information for you to make an informed decision on whether to make a purchase or not. I quite like this concept as marketing using Facebook is a great way to earn money. Using bots is becoming popular now – much more than email marketing as it’s dynamic. When a message arrives using a bot, you hear a ping on your phone. Most people are online 24/7 so there is no missing out on a message.
However, this system isn’t beginner friendly. There are a lot of pieces to the puzzle to make this work and when it doesn’t Erik suggests you just go over the video again. If you are a newbie, this can leave you feeling frustrated and confused.
I have learned many pieces of the puzzle using in-depth training so I can plug in the missing pieces – which for me is the Manychat tool. You, as a beginner will need to learn and understand how Internet Marketing works in order to become successful with systems like Shockwave Profits. Even though it is marketed as being beginner friendly, it isn’t. A lot of assumption has been made i.e. that you know what a Page Builder is, that you already have a niche so you can join Facebook groups and so on.
The best way to make use of systems and products like Shockwave Profits is to learn how to utilize the methods taught by learning them yourself.
Whatever decision you make, I wish you nothing but success with your online journey.
