Social Tipster is a tipster service which is supposedly different from others on the market in so much as all selections come from a piece of software. The software has in turn been developed by Ollie Morgan.
What does the product offer?
It seems like every other day I see some questionable tipster service landing in my inbox. These are inevitably operated by the same gaggle of ex city traders, IT geniuses who have cracked the code and previous industry insiders. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen a speck of evidence to really suggest that any of these products has actually been able to even come close to making anywhere near the claimed profits. In fact, few of them are around for longer than a few months.
As such, there is something delightful and slightly ironic in terms of the marketing approach that Social Tipster takes. The headline asks if “You Are Tired Of Rip-Off Ten A Penny Betting Tipsters”. This is immediately followed up by referring to Social Tipster as “The Hands Off Software Enables The Struggling Punter To Boost Any Betting Account From Zero To Thousands”. Furthermore, this should be achieved in less than 14 days. There is no denying that these are some fantastical claims and I am eager to see how Social Tipster will perform.
So, what exactly do you get with the service? According to Ollie Morgan, you will receive “Fast, Accurate & Profitable Bets Over and Over”. Logistically, Social Tipster does very little that I haven’t seen a hundred times from the exact same tipster services that are chastised in the headlines. What this means is that you can expect selections on a daily basis. These are uploaded to a member’s area on the website as well as notification issued via email.
The bets themselves all appear to be straight forward. This means win bets with a variety of odds. All that you have to do according to Ollie Morgan is follow his instructions. This does mean placing bets with a recommended bookmaker although I don’t see this as being too much of a problem. Interestingly, Ollie Morgan does say that Social Tipster has “worldwide capabilities”. I find this claim to be rather interesting as betting is something that is generally quite heavily restricted on a global scale.
So what else can you expect from Social Tipster? Rather unfortunately, there is no real staking plan in place for Social Tipster. This is something that I am rather conflicted about as the results that are claimed by Ollie Morgan are published both as pounds and pence as well as a points value. There is however a discrepancy of sorts there however this is something that I will look at in full detail below.
This only really leaves the strike rate to consider. This is one area where I hoped that Social Tipster would be particularly comprehensive. After all, when you consider that Ollie Morgan has coded the software, you would expect that he would be able to extrapolate data from it. Instead we are simply told that Social Tipster is low risk and that in following the software behind it has been “proven to win far more than you lose”. Perhaps not surprisingly, there is no proofing provided to back this up, despite it being apparently referenced.
How does the product work?
The concept behind Social Tipster is unfortunately not quite as unique as Ollie Morgan seems to believe that it is. None the less, I do want to have a look at this, if only to create some context. First of all, there is Ollie Morgan’s story. This involves him working as an IT consultant whist apparently making (or at least trying) to make money on the side through horse racing. It is said in the sales material that Ollie Morgan was subscribed to over 100 tipster pages through his Facebook page. The software was developed as a way of wanting to help keep on top of these bets
All of this brings me to how the software actually works. It is never technically stated but it does seem that the selections that Social Tipster issues are in turn based on these 100 aforementioned tipsters. When agreed bets are found, Ollie Morgan says that Social Tipster then looks at a number of different aspects such as form, odds, rating as well as the weather and track. It is supposedly only by combining these factors that the winning bets are chosen.
What is the initial investment?
If you want to buy into Social Tipster there is just one option available which is for a lifetime license to use the software behind the service. Quite what shape this lifetime will take is something that Ollie Morgan doesn’t ever explore, however I believe that the lifespan of Social Tipster is likely to be rather short in the grand scheme of things.
There is one positive which can be said which comes in the form of a money back guarantee. Ollie Morgan says that if you are unhappy with Social Tipster, you have 60 days to claim a full refund. Because Social Tipster is sold through Clickbank, this does mean that you shouldn’t have any problems claiming this.
What is the rate of return?
In terms of the income potential for Social Tipster, there are two key claims that I want to look at. The first is that there is a daily points profit of 1.8 up for grabs (which would mean 657 points for the year). The other claim is that you can make thousands (note the plural) in less than 14 days. Using very crude estimates, these results would seemingly be based off stakes of £80 per point. Of course there is also a (questionable, despite being referred to as guaranteed and verified proof) screenshot of a Ladbrokes account with £133,000 in it. Over 12 months, this would mean stakes of just over £200 per point. So truthfully, who knows what the real profit potential of Social Tipster is.
There is very little that bothers me more than when a service makes promises that it clearly can’t provide. Unfortunately, this kind of approach appears to be becoming increasingly popular and this is for good reason (if you are the person selling a product). It is really easy for somebody to make vague claims about how a service doesn’t take a lot of time, how it’s low risk and most importantly, hugely profitable. It is much rarer for these claims to be true.
Social Tipster is probably one of the better examples currently doing the rounds of all this. Ollie Morgan makes all of these claims in some fashion or another and tops it all off very neatly with the bow of a seemingly low price. Now a genuine tipster would be able to provide evidence to back their claims up. There would be up to date proofing, for example. Tips would come with plenty of information instead of just the bare essentials. I know all of this because I have looked at my fair share of good tipster services.
When it comes to any money making product, evidence is king and when there is a lack of it, I find myself questioning things. In the case of Social Tipster, this may well have turned out to be justified as an investigation into the back end shows that the product may not be an entirely genuine service. The vendor for Social Tipster has had a number of different tipster services going all of the way back to 2012. There have also been a large number issued in the last few months which is even more concerning.
Keeping this in mind (not that I had a lot of hope for Social Tipster before this), not even the low price can make the service seem like value for money. I have very little doubt that first and foremost, this service exists solely to make money for an internet marketer who wants to take advantage of a niche that is always busy. It will probably come as no real surprise when I say that I cannot really recommend Social Tipster at all.
