Ian Fernando’s $1.2 Million Dollar Mistake…

Optin CommentsOkay not really $1.2 MM… But it was a BIG mistake if you ask me.  About 2 weeks ago Ian made a blog post, in that post he briefly mentioned that he was putting some of his sites up on Flippa.  So, naturally I jumped on there to see what he was listing.  Fortunately for me he put for sale. So…  I contacted him and worked out a deal.  So… To make a long story short…


Yeah you heard that right.  You can now own optincomments for Zero down and Zero monthly.

Let me explain to you a little about this plugin… When someone comes to the blog and leaves you a comment you can essentially send them directly onto your autoresponder.  Imagine with me for a second that we have a blog in the “Internet Marketing” space.  Now, when someone leaves a comment on the blog they can be subscribed to my mailing list as well.  This is a great way to continue a relationship with your readers.  Send them a thank you email and maybe a link to a survey.

The possibilities are really limitless here.

I sunk in about $4k more after I purchased this product to make it really top notch and seamless. So… Without wasting anymore of your time… You can grab FREE by clicking this banner:

Your banner is not working. It would land on an error page.
Please check it out!

If it lands on an error page then you need to either clear your cache or flush your DNS.

April 4, 2010

Dang, and I had to buy it a year ago for myself :P
Great purchase, I like the plugin quite a bit!

April 4, 2010

I dont get it…if your giving it away for free how is is a 1.2m mistake?

April 5, 2010

The money is in the list! Come on Brandon… You should know that. :P

April 5, 2010

Misleading headline ;)

April 5, 2010

lol I’m trying to be like the gurus now HAHA. j/k

April 5, 2010

Hi guys,

I love the word “FREE.” This offer sounds good to me.

Kind regards,


April 5, 2010

Yes the post title is quite amusing. Congrats on scoring OptinComments though. It sounds like a great plugin. Best of luck with it.

April 6, 2010

Hey Kris, I’m getting an “error” too when I hit the /free.php page…the top of the page says:

It Seems You Have Reached this Page in Error…
But before you leave…
and then the rest of the page just has product info with no way to get the plugin/optin or whatever…just links back to the main site.

Cleared cache, multiple browsers, even tried flushing DNS but that ain’t it

April 6, 2010

Thanks Kris free is always awesome

April 6, 2010

Ian Fernando, also lost LP Jumper

April 8, 2010

Nice work! Can’t wait to hear how the list grows and the addition of the commenter’s email to your marketing list makes great sense.

April 9, 2010

Wow this is great !!

Misleading headline (:(:

April 9, 2010

That’s a lot of dough to plunk down to smooth things out. Thank you Kris :)

April 9, 2010

I love free stuff as well. But how do you come up with $1.2 mistake?

April 10, 2010

Congrats on your new domain acquisition :D That just goes to show how great the free market is, some gain, some lose, either way each have their own opinions on the deal that was transacted, hehe. Would be cool to see Ian make a reply post to this, who knows it might make a trendy and for some nice link bait… as all the other bloggers will be talking about the Ian vs Kris deal, hehe.

April 10, 2010

Hi Kris:

The Link above go to main domain:
Where is the link for the free plugin download….if there is one really!!


April 11, 2010

Nice product. I will test it on my blog

April 11, 2010

It says it’s $57 – where’s the freebie Kris?

April 11, 2010

@ Tom & Justin Bieber – If you signed up then you can either scroll to the bottom of the upsell or go here to download:

The plugin won’t work unless you sign up on the first page though. It ties into our authorization server.

You can also check out the email that it send right away for other download instructions.

@Contenxtual Link Building – There was no $1.2 Million mistake. That was clickbait for :P Very misleading but to me his mistake was HUGE. The money that can be made from a list is amazing… Million dollar amazing… So while the list I build from optincomments might not be million dollar worthy right now it will be in a few months when others promote the product.

Everything that is free will be definitely like by many people. I’ll download this and share my experience with you guys.

April 12, 2010

I like the headline you used… you’re a true marketer.

April 12, 2010

OK, I see what you’re doing here. Firstly you’re building your email list, and then the free plugin comes with a powered by badge that will be displayed on one’s site. Is this badge a backlink to boot? I would think so. How much does the platinum version of the plugin that don’t have the badge cost?

April 14, 2010

Let’s see how useful this plugin…. Thanks for sharing :)

April 15, 2010

The headline definitely caught my attention, lol. Cheers for the heads-up about the plugin.

Till then,


April 16, 2010

I would like to buy it

April 16, 2010

It is not free anymore, may be i will buy it later, it will be helpful for me.

April 18, 2010
