I appreciate you stopping by my 100% truthful and unbiased review of Kartel!
Now, before you get the wrong end of the stick…
No, you’re not gonna be roped into highly illegal and dangerous drug smuggling activities across the Mexican border. 😛
Instead, this version of Kartel easily smuggles $1,000 high-ticket affiliate commissions per transaction according to Jono Armstrong.
But is this really some ground-breaking software that’s gonna transport (in a legal sense) fat stacks of cash to your bank account?
Or just another hyped-up “secret” method that fails to deliver the goods, huh?
Look inside this review for the answer…
At a Quick Glance
Owner: Jono Armstrong. (OMG, there’s no Brendan Mace!)
Cost: $16.95 (at the time of writing) + $100s for upsells & paid ads.
My Score: 5/10.

- Low start-up cost
- Easy-to-use software
- Training tutorials
- Help & support
- Money-making potential
- 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
- Basic software comes with limitations
- Paid YouTube ads are risky
- Has numerous upsells
In a nutshell, Kartel is a piece of software that not only enables you to set up ‘Done-For-You’ webinar pages that can lead to affiliate commissions.
But also finds you targeted YouTube videos (in any niche) that you can run Google ads on for sending traffic to those pages.
I must admit, I like the software because it is actually newbie-friendly to use.
And I also like the fact that Armstrong offers guidance on making full use of the software and setting up YouTube ad campaigns on Google.
But as for you raking in $1,000 per sale with this system, that’s dependent on a number of factors.
Overall, this can be a good strategy to dip your big toe into, but only if you have some cash to burn from the get-go because paid ads can be costly.
Final Verdict: Legit.
But before you take one more step, see THE best way to go about making sustainable money in the golden lands of affiliate marketing…
What is Kartel All About, You Say?
I don’t wanna recite the sales page too much.
But Armstrong reckons Kartel is some newbie-friendly game-changing software that smuggles $1K commissions by exploiting an untapped traffic loophole.
He also claims the software produces an income stream that flows around the clock, and it’s so easy anyone can do it.
But surely, without any sort of platform at your disposal, how the heck are you gonna “cash in”? LOL.
Hmm… now, where have I heard all that type of hype before?
In fact, with pretty much EVERY money-making product ever produced by Armstrong and Brendan Mace.
It just seems to be the norm these days with the stuff sold through WarriorPlus. Ugh.
But the question is, does Kartel really live up to the buzz – raking you in affiliate commissions the size of houses?
Well, not quite. But you get the picture, right?…
The Nuts N’ Bolts of Kartel: How it Works…
Once you log into the members’ area which is just like THIS:
There’s a 3.57- minute video introduction from Armstrong.
Where he mostly rambles on about registering for his free training workshop before giving you a quick run-through of the Kartel dashboard area.
Next up is a 4.37-minute overview video of how the software and training actually works.
In a nutshell, you’ll be using the software to create ‘Done-For-You’ webinar pages that can make you high-ticket affiliate commissions.
And then use the power of YouTube Ads to blast traffic to your pages.
Here’s how the whole process works in more detail:
Getting Set Up (4.46-Minute Video)
First of all, Armstrong highlights all the tools of the trade you’re gonna need to get up and running with strategy.
He talks about grabbing a Google Ads account, hooking it up to your credit or debit card, and starting out with around $25 – $30 for ad spend.
How To Use The Software (2 Videos)
Here, is where you’ll actually gain access to the software itself and also learn how to take advantage of it in two different ways:
#1: High Ticket Pages (10.10 Minutes)
Armstrong walks you through the easy process of setting up your money page to be congruent with your affiliate offer in any niche.
For his example, he rolls with the ‘make money’ industry (no surprise there).
Where he encourages you to record and upload your own short video introduction and pick a ‘Done-For-You’ high-converting webinar.
You have one of five webinars to choose from, but John Crestani’s Super Affiliate System webinar is by far the best. 😉
And then you simply monetize your webinar with the corresponding affiliate link from ClickBank or wherever the product’s for sale.
So When folks register for the free webinar and purchase the product inside of it, you’ll make some big commissions.
#2: Audience Search (7.14 Minutes)
Inside this video, Armstrong shows you how to use his audience finder software for “niching down” into your niche.
Where the software acts as a basic keyword research tool for pulling up tons of suggestions from Google, Yahoo, Bing, and YouTube, etc.
Where you’ll pick a term that enables you to choose a bunch of “monetizable” YouTube videos with high view counts and engagement levels for your campaign.
Profit Training (3 Videos)
The 3 tutorials in this section include:
- Basic Training (15.06 Minutes)
- Advanced Training (14.27 Mins)
- Campaign Set up & Targeting (15.06 Mins)
I’m not gonna dive too deep into the training here.
But with basic training, you’ll learn about finding affiliate offers on ClickBank and using product creators’ promo videos for your own YouTube video ads.
When it comes to the advanced stuff, you’ll basically learn about finding other webinars to use for your campaigns and also creating your own video introductions.
Now as for the third tutorial, Armstrong shows you how to set up your YouTube video ad campaigns inside Google Ads to send traffic to your webinar money pages.
I must admit, the training isn’t that bad because Armstrong gives you some good tips and directions on implementing the methods, in my opinion.
What’s The Cost of Kartel, Huh?
The current price for the basic version is $16.95.
But it’s not set in stone because the price may increase/decrease with it being a WarriorPlus product.
However, using the paid YouTube ad method could easily cost you a chunk of change due to variables like competition strength, etc, which can push campaign prices up.
If you wanna lift any restrictions that come with Kartel and potentially boost your profits, the pro version will cost you $67.
And then it’s upselling time!…
- ‘Done-For-You’ Campaigns = $197
- ‘Steal Our 3.8 Million List’ = $197
- ‘Our $1K Commission System’ = $197
- ‘License Rights’ to resell Kartel for 100% commissions = $167 – Hmm, that might explain all the “biased” reviews of the product on Google.
Final Conclusion: Is Kartel Worth it?
In all honesty, Kartel isn’t that bad, and is probably something I’d take for a spin around the block as a newbie.
So if you’ve got some cash to splash on running YouTube ads via Google Ads, then I say why not?
But as for Jono claiming you’re gonna rake in $1,000 in commissions per person, he can’t really make such bold claims.
Because there are factors you must first take into consideration.
First of all, it depends on the product price point and the level of commissions you earn from promoting it.
Secondly, there’s the niche you’re in.
If it’s highly competitive like the ‘make money online’ one, you’re gonna be bidding against some pretty strong competitors.
So there’s no telling how much dosh you’ll need to spend on your campaigns to see 4-figure commissions.
And thirdly, it also boils down to how many eyeballs see your ads on YouTube.
Because not all videos are equal. Some videos may trigger plenty of viewers. Whereas some videos will receive very few.
But then again, that’s the “organic search traffic” world for ya! It’s unpredictable.
So it’s the luck of the draw when it comes to this paid YouTube strategy, in my book.
After a Cost-Effective Way to do Affiliate Marketing?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying the Kartel method will leave you high and dry with $1,000s out-of-pocket like some dirty scam.
I’m just saying it’s not exactly the best option for starting out in the land of affiliate marketing because there are some monetary risks at play.
So if you want a much cheaper alternative to building a Biz that generates you a long term passive income…
One, that requires that word called “hard work”, but also equips you with the tools of the trade, step-by-step training & 24/7 support from a HUGE community…
