What is Covert Gawkr?
Anyone else find that guy’s cough irritating? I think he should have recorded that video on a day when he didn’t have a cough. Anyway, putting that to one side, let’s talk about the product itself.
It is a WordPress theme designed to create websites that draw content from other websites. Apparently, this style of website will naturally get a lot of traffic from social media. Then people will join your website and start creating content on your website for you.
As you can see, it looks a lot like Pinterest. The problem is, Pinterest already exists, so I think there is no need to reinvent it.
Who is Covert Gawkr for?
Lazy people who want to try to get other people to write their website content for them. If that sounds like you, it could be ideal.
Okay, maybe I’m being a little unfair there. Perhaps this could work out. Maybe you would be able to attract people from social media to join your website, and over time they will create content for you.
But some people are going to look at this and think it will instantly create a hit website. I don’t think it will.
Covert Gawkr Review Video
He’s wrong about one thing here. He says it would cost you £100 to buy another theme that looks like this. No, you can get some good-looking Pinterest-style WordPress themes for free.
He then makes another jump by saying that without this theme you would need to pay lots of money for people to write your content. Not necessarily true. You could start by filling the site with some content yourself. Not too difficult really. Spend a week or two bashing out a bunch of content yourself for free.
But what about the ability for Covert Gawkr to curate content from other websites? Well, if you are happy with starting with copied content on your website, you can copy and paste that from other websites yourself. Shouldn’t take you too long. Set aside a day and get to it, then it’s done.
Then there is the assumption that you need this theme to have members contribute to your website. Is that really true? I’m not sure it is. With WordPress, you can allow people to set up Author accounts so they can submit their own content. I don’t think you need to buy a special theme to do that.
Who Created Covert Gawkr?
It was created by Soren Jordansen and John Merrick, who call themselves “The IM Wealth Builders”. This seems to be their first product released under this title, but they do have a bunch of future released planned, all with the word “Covert” in the title:
- Covert Messenger
- Covert Social Press
- Covert Action Bar
- Covert Video Press
- Covert Copy Traffic
- Covert Store Builder
- Covert Context
- Covert Viral Wizard
- Covert Pin Press
- Covert Shirt Store
I found a website for IM Wealthy Builders, but it doesn’t appear to have been updated since April 2014. I also found a website for Soren Jordansen, but that hadn’t been updated since 2009!
However, I did find a review from 2015 of one of Soren’s previous products – Internet Marketing Success Formula. The review did not recommend it because it really seemed to just consist of giving you an ebook for free, then trying to get you to pay $67 in upsells, then he tries to get you to do the same thing to other people.
As for John Merrick, he has previously released a product several years ago called “Cloak & Dagger Affiliate Secrets”. Doesn’t sound too nice, does it?
How Much will Covert Gawkr Cost You?
At the time of writing this, it costs $22.47, although this price will go up to $67 over the next couple of days. Usually, these types of product launches have additional products they try to upsell to you, but I couldn’t find any information about them for Covert Gawkr. That doesn’t necessarily mean there aren’t any, just that I was unable to find any information about them.
Should you Buy Covert Gawkr?
No, I would NOT recommend you buy it. If you want to create a Pinterest-style website with copied content which other people can contribute to, do yourself a favour and do the following:
- Install a free Pinterest-style WordPress theme.
- Manually copy a bunch of content from other websites.
- Enable visitors to creator Author accounts on your website.
- Blast your website to social media.
