Secrets of The Wealthy (SOTW) – Scam System Exposed? [Review]

Is Secrets of The Wealthy an easy way to make it rich? Or is Sgt. Mark’s system just going to be a waste of your money and time?

Of course it is being promoted as the greatest opportunity since the beginning of time, but what you hear isn’t necessarily true. And I’m here to help break up the confusion.

In this review I’ll be giving you a realistic look at what you would be getting into if you were to join Secrets of The Wealthy (SOTW).

Spoiler alert: This it is not the incredible system that it is claimed to be. You we’ll see what I mean by this.

Secrets of The Wealthy Review

This SOTW system was created by a guy named Mark that is a retired Army Sgt. It is all about being able to earn easy money online, or even off-line. There isn’t a focus on building some online business, learning some complicated new skills, or anything like that. It is strictly focused on giving people the opportunity to earn easy money with as little work as possible… No long training to get through or anything like that.

Sounds good… I mean who doesn’t want to earn money and who doesn’t want it to be super easy?

But while it is true that you can earn large amounts of money with this system, there are some serious downsides that I will be going over.

But anyways… The first video I came across when looking into this is pictured here…

Success With Sgt Marc

In the video there was talk about being able to earn $10,000 per week in income with this system, which combines top tier sales with a “turnkey platform”.

The video is basically an introduction to the system, but really didn’t tell you much at all. It just hyped up everything and was basically to get you excited.

Below the video I noticed a bunch of testimonials from people who have supposedly been making tons of money with this system. But are they real or fake? I have reviewed tons of scams online with testimonials I have proven to be fake, but it can still be difficult to say for sure at times. When I first came across these testimonials they actually did seem legitimate to me, but as you will see in a bit… I’m hesitant to trust them.

Video #2:

Secrets of The Wealthy Webinar

In this video there was talk about people making over $100,000 a month and a ton more testimonials. However, after watching this video I was starting to question the legitimacy of these testimonials. There was a ton of people talking about “plugging in” to the system and profiting… Which just seems like a weird phrase for everyone to be using. It basically seems to me like they were being told what to say.

 Back to the system: You are told that you can generate between $1500-$10,500 or more per week and that the system well…

  • Find prospects for you
  • Qualify them
  • Contact them

Ok…I See What’s Going On Here

After doing some looking around I was starting to see some similarities to other systems I’ve reviewed in the past, such as Big Profit System and High Ticket Income System. Basically the SOTW system is another high-ticket money scheme.

Basically what you do is buy into the system at ridiculous prices and then make money by recruiting other people into the system, just as you were recruited in.

There are four different product levels that you can buy in at… Ranging from $3000 plus an administrative fee to $21,000 plus the administrative fee. You can see their prices as follows…

4 Product Levels:

  1. Gold Level – $3,000 + $247 admin fee
  2. Platinim Level – $7,000 + $447 admin fee
  3. Diamond Level – $14,000 + $647 admin fee
  4. Ultra Royal – $21,000 + $847 admin fee

So after you buy in the goal is to resell the different products packages.

It isn’t a cash gifting scheme or anything like that. When you buy in at these different levels you do get a product. What you get is a bundle of E-training courses in things like business development, marketing training, personal development training, wealth education training and more. So you are getting some value.

However… These E-training products in my opinion are just a cover-up to try to add some legitimacy to this business, which is focused around buying in and then reselling these different product levels for massive commissions.

Once you buy and you will be able to earn 50% commissions on every sale that you help make. Of course your “success coaches” will close the sales for you, but you will still help make the sales in the first place.

So at a minimum, if you join at the lowest Gold level, which costs $3000, you will earn a 50% commission of $1500 when you recruit people in and they join at that level.

Why It’s a Big Scheme

No one is buying into this system for the E-training products that they are getting… They are buying in so that they can earn large commissions recruiting other people in as well. That is it. The products are just there for legality purposes.

And while these products may have some value to them, they are definitely not worth the amount of money that people are paying for them. Just think about it… If the E-training products that you get at the Gold Level were really worth $3000, then how would they be able to pay people commissions of $1500 for recruiting other people into this level?

The goal here is obviously to sell this crap at insanely inflated prices for the sake of members being able to earn massive commissions.

How It Works

Step 1: Lead Generation

So the first step is lead generation. This is when you capture email addresses and phone numbers for potential prospects.

In the presentation there is no detailed information offered on this, but there is mention of “ad packages”. So what it seems is going on here is that you will be purchasing these advertising packages to promote the system which will then lead to lead generation.

Step 2: Contact Prospects

After you promote the system and help generate some leads, they will be contacted by “success coaches” and sent directly to your webpage for as SOTW.

Step 3: You Get Paid

Then… If the people in the buy into the system you get paid commissions as discussed above. The same thing that is happening to you now is going to happen to the other people that you help recruit into the system.

Is It Really as Little Work as He Tells You?

You might be wondering… If the system really is as little work as you are told, then why do the results differ so much?

For example… In the video presentation there were testimonials from some people claiming that they are earning over $100,000 a month while others aren’t earning even close to that… So why the big difference?

If the system was doing all the work, then you would expect the results to be identical for everyone… When you?

Well… Just as was always to make money online, this is not going to be as simple as it seems. And much of the differences in earnings probably comes from the ad packages that you are going to have to buy, which start at $99 apiece.

Unanswered Questions

One of the unfortunate sides to getting involved in a system like this is that you don’t really know what you’re getting involved in.

I know I hope to clarify some things and hopefully give you a better idea of what this is all about, but I still have some unanswered questions myself.

For example… He mentions that leads are generated both online and off-line… But what does he mean by this? How is this system going to generate leads off-line?

And it seems that you can also get paid directly to your bank account or by getting checks sent to your address… But how does this work?

These or questions I have no idea how to answer.

Why This Isn’t Something I’d Recommend

While there are some details to the system that I do not know, based on what I see and what I do know this is definitely not a system I am going to be recommending to my readers. Why not? Well… Because I just don’t think it will be worth it.

Well it is definitely possible to make large commissions with a system like this, I think that most people who buy into this will stand a greater chance of losing money rather than making money.

First off, you have to realize that recruiting people into a system like this is much easier said than done. People aren’t just going to take out $3000 (the minimum amount) and buy into something that seems a bit on the scammy side. Just like you, they will probably be suspicious and search for additional information online.

Second, I have reviewed other similar systems in the past in they never seem to last very long. They make their way online, or popular for a short period of time, and then disappearing and are never heard of again.

While everyone once in easy way to make money that requires little to no work, unfortunately ways like this are not very sustainable. I have been involved in online marketing since 2015 and I don’t know of any “super easy” way to make money online.

But anyways… I hope you enjoyed this review and found at least somewhat helpful. If you are looking for a legitimate and sustainable way to make money online, I would highly suggest taking a look at how I went from $0 to over $6000 a month online.

Fast Profits Online Is a Bunch of Crap – Avoid This SCAM!

There is this new system called Fast Profits (aka Fast Profits Online) being promoted all over that can supposedly make you thousands of dollars per day… But unfortunately it is all one big fat lie.

When we all like to come across some incredible system that requires very little work and that could make us tons of money on autopilot? That would be incredible… I sure as heck would and if I did come across something like this, I would be sharing it with all my family and friends.

Unfortunately, we live in a world where there are a heck of a lot of scams… Especially when it comes to the online world. And Fast Profits is just one of many.

I expose scams on my blog here on I missed a daily basis so coming across something like this is nothing new to me. It’s not much different from other scams like The Profit Shortcut and The China Secret that I reviewed recently.

But anyways… Let’s get on to the review…

Fast Profits Online Review

The Fast Profits system is supposedly the creation of some guy named “Michael Carson”. He explained that he used to run a consulting business that would help small businesses get started online, but eventually quit and developed some “weird but simple trick” into a system that could be applied to any online business to make thousands of dollars per day.

But as you are already aware… Most of what he tells you is a bunch of crap.

As soon as you land on the website you are greeted with a video presentation that starts off by saying that the video is “highly private and sensitive”. This is the first mistake that the scammers behind the system made, because I know that just about every system out there that makes statements like this turns out to be a scam.

But anyways… You are told that people are earning $1700 per day, every day, with this system and that some of his students are earning up to three times this amount.

How are they doing it? Well… He keeps talking about some “weird” trick even refers to at one point as an “incredible trick” that has already helped 237 people make more than $20,000 each in the past three weeks.

And… The best part is that he claims he is super lazy and only works one hour a day maximum… Meaning that you can make a lot more than him if you work more.

How You Are Supposedly Going To Be Making All This Money

He is pretty vague when he explains how this system is supposedly going to make money, and really doesn’t provide much detail at all, but there were some hints that were throughout the video presentation that I picked up on.

We know that it has something to do with e-commerce, which he claims is the next big thing and that you can make more money in this business than anything else.

He then goes on to say that you don’t need any products to sell in order to make money with this system… But what the heck does that mean?

Isn’t e-commerce all about selling products online?

Well… What he is talking about here is called “drop shipping”, which I actually have a couple years of experience doing.

Drop shipping is basically when you set up your own e-commerce store but don’t hold any inventory, instead when you make a sale you have the product shipped directly from the manufacturer. It is a great business model that can be very lucrative, but unfortunately this Fast Profits Online BS isn’t going to get you to where you want to be.

Sounds a Little Too Good to Be True… Doesn’t It?

As the old saying goes… If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is. This is a saying you should always keep in the back of your mind, especially when it comes to the “make money online” programs/systems that are out there.

Just think about it… Some “weird trick”, some system that he created after having some “crazy idea to try a little hack”… What the heck is talk like this supposed to mean?

I don’t know about you… But being able to make $1700 per day like clockwork all from some “weird trick” that never gets fully explained sounds way too good to be true. And… Unfortunately most of it is a lie…

It Is All One Big Lie!

So at one point in the video presentation he shows a bunch of testimonials from people who are supposedly using this system to make a crap ton of money.

I’m talking about people like this (the girl below) who claims this system has been a miracle and has changed her life…

testimonial screenshot

That would be great if her life did change for the better, but unfortunately what she is saying is not true. It is all a lie and she got paid to say it. How do I know?

Well… Because she is actually a paid actress from the freelance digital marketplace called Fiverr…

Fiver profile

And she isn’t the only one. All of those other video testimonials are fake as well.

In fact… Just about everything is fake.

At one point shows a screenshot of his bank account that has $2.8 million in it, but the problem is that this can easily be faked as well. It is incredibly easy nowadays to Photoshop the bank account to make it appear to have some astronomical balance…

Fast Profits Online Screenshot

And quite honestly I doubt that this “Michael Carson” guy even exists. This certainly isn’t out of the question because many online scams I have reviewed in the past have been promoted under fake names.

Of course the real people running the scams don’t want their names known, so they make up some fictitious character and promoted under the fake identity.

Fast Profits.Online Michael Carson

I mean… I don’t have any proof that this guy doesn’t exist… But I also don’t have any proof that he does exist.

And I’m not so sure I would trust this place

I Wouldn’t Trust This Place at All

I decided to run a website check on ScamAdviser.com for the site, which is fastprofits.online, you and found that the website is actually based in Panama but the relocation is being hidden…

Scam check for fastprofits.online

Sounds a bit strange, doesn’t not?

You decide.

Conclusion = Scam

While I don’t have any concrete evidence that this entire system is a scam, I am pretty confident in my review here. As I said, I have reviewed countless online scams and this one really fits the bill.

It might not be a complete scam however. My guess is that you probably will get some crappy low quality training on building your own e-commerce business, but it will be nothing like you are led to believe. It will probably just end up being a big waste of time and money in the end.

If you want my personal recommendation on things I would highly suggest taking a look at how I went from $0 to over $6,000 a month online… All legitimately.

Anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please leave any questions or comments down below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

The China Secret – Another Really.. Really Stupid Scam!

So there is this new system being promoted online called “The China Secret” that can supposedly make you rich… But unfortunately it is all a lie. This is just another scam system that is going to leave you with less money than when you started. Fortunately it doesn’t cost all that much so if you do buy into it you want that much worse off… But the point is that it is a scam and you should avoid it.

And in this review I will be explaining to you why I say this.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could really get in on some awesome new system that exploits a new and emerging industry like this? Any would be that easy to make tons of money?

That would be incredible… But unfortunately when it comes to the online world, if something sounds a little bit too good to be true it is more than likely a scam. This system just reminds me of other scams I’ve exposed recently such as The Profit Shortcut and Wealth Project.

But anyways… Let’s get on to the review…

 

Review of “The China Secret”

So “The China Secret” is supposedly some new “secret” system that “pillages a $1.4 billion industry”.

I first came across this system with a video presentation in which I didn’t catch the guy’s name who created it. Maybe it was because he was talking so fast that I didn’t hear it, or maybe he just forgot to even mention it. However, when I went to exit out of the video a pop-up showed up on the screen that asked me if I wanted to see the written version, I agreed and as you can see below, in the written sales pitch his name is listed as “Robert Walter”…

screenshot of written salespitch

This guy claims to be a 55-year-old who used to work in the corporate world but ended up losing his job and eventually losing his wife because of it. He then spent countless nights trying to make money online but just ended up falling victim to a bunch of scams, like many other people do.

But… He claims that if you have fallen victim to scams like he has, it is not your fault, reason being that the gurus out there are just selling you outdated techniques/methods that no longer work.

He claims that he is not like these gurus in that he really wants to help people out. Now he is making tons of money with this system, he tells you that he just wants to give back.

And according to him the time to buy in his right now. In the video it is mentioned that some “global financial crisis is going to happen in 2019”.

But… As you already know… Pretty much everything he tells you is a bunch of crap. While it is true that there are a lot of financial crises going on right now, he is just trying to get in your head and scare you into buying his stupid system. This is typical fear mongering that is a common sales tactic employed by online scammers.

 

How This “Secret” Supposedly Makes You a Ton of Money

He says that his system makes money by exploiting the new “messenger marketing” opportunity with Facebook Messenger.

He talks about how the Chinese messenger powerhouse, called WeChat, is raking in billions of dollars per year and that Facebook is starting to catch up by rolling out advanced commerce and advertising features inside of messenger. He says that this new opportunity has not caught on yet other people in that you could be one of the first ones in on this.

How much money can the system make you?

But what he says is that he has made $28,432.22 in one single day in that this system runs 24/7… Making him so much money that he was able to buy his dream home in just two months.

 

Scam? It Sure Seems Like One!…

If you are familiar with my blog you know that I expose scams like this on a regular basis. I could go on all day about all the red flags I see here, but I will keep it short in just go over for quick red flags that really show this is a probable scam.

 

Red Flag #1 – Sounds too good to be true

The most obvious is that it just sounds too good to be true. And you know how the old saying goes… If something sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

This old saying applies extremely well when it comes to the online world, which is absolutely plagued with scams.

 

Red Flag #2 – Doesn’t even tell you how this makes you money

Another major red flag is that he doesn’t even tell you how the system makes you money. Sure, he explains that it takes advantage of some new market emerging inside of Facebook Messenger, but everything he tells you is incredibly vague.

Keeping things vague and not providing any good details is a telltale sign of a scam.

 

Red Flag #3 – Who is this Robert Walter guy?

So first off, like I said, in the video presentation I don’t even think he mentions his name which is ridiculous.

But besides that, even in the written sales pitch all he does is mention his name. There is no picture of him provided, no background information, nothing. The entire story about him losing his job and coming across that this system is probably completely made up.

In fact, the guy “Robert Walter” is probably made up.

 

Red Flag #4 – It only costs $9… ?

It may sound awesome that this system only cost nine dollars. I mean nine dollars it is an much nowadays. However, doesn’t this make you a bit suspicious? I mean why would he be selling it for so cheap?

Sure, sure… I know he says that he just wants to give back and wants to give everyone a chance to get in on this, but it isn’t like I haven’t heard sayings like this 1000 times before with other online scams.

 

Conclusion – Avoid

You or more than welcome to buy into this system if you want to, but I highly recommend avoiding it. I know I didn’t actually buy into this so I can’t say with 100% certainty that is a scam, but with my knowledge of how the online marketing world works and the different ways to make money out there, it sure as heck seems like a pure scam to me.

I’ve been involved in online marketing since 2015 and make a living doing so. I’m always trying to keep up to date on new methods/techniques for making money online, and I can tell you for sure that exploiting some “China secret” is nothing that I have heard of as being legitimate.

The in the good thing about this system is that is being sold through the digital marketplace ClickBank, which means that you will be able to get a refund if you buy into it and when your money back.

I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. If you want my recommendation for making money online I would highly suggest taking a look at how I went from $0 to over $6,000 a month online.

Fronto App Review – Seriously… Make Money Unlocking Your Phone?

Is this some sort of sick joke? Can you seriously make money unlocking your phone with the Fronto app!!? Or is this some sort of scam? Well… The truth is, you can… And in this Fronto app review I’ll be going over everything you need to know before hand so that you know what you’re getting involved with and whether or not it is worth your time.

How would you like to make a living swiping your phone all day? Just constantly unlocking it and then shutting it back off, online it again, shutting it back off, and so on? Wouldn’t that be awesome?

Well… Unfortunately you are going to make even close to enough money to make a living off of, but you can make some easy extra money with this app.

I no sound strange that can make money just by unlocking your phone, but I will explain everything and you will understand how it all works…


 

Fronto App Review

So in a nutshell, the Fronto app (official website fronto.co) is an app available for android devices that pays you to unlock your phone and also offers additional earning opportunities, such as playing games, watching videos, visiting websites, betting, etc. But the main part of this app is the lock screen part, which is why it is often referred to as the “Fronto Lockscreen app”.

But you are probably wondering… How the heck can they possibly pay you to unlock your phone?

Well… They are actually paying you to unlock your phone. What they’re paying you to do is to view advertisements. You see basically what Fronto does is displays ads onto your lock screen. So when you go to unlock your phone in ad will appear. All this really is as advertising… A new type of “lock screen advertising”.

Now the good thing is that you don’t have to interact with the ads that are displayed on your screen. You can earn a little bit of extra points if you do choose to view an ad, but you can also ignore them and open your phone normally.


 

How It Works… a Look Inside..

First you will have to create an account and login, which you can do with an email or with your Facebook account.

One of the big point-earners are the Daily Check-in Rewards, which are 500 points that you can get each day just for opening up the app…

But as I said, the unlock part of it all is the main part of this app, so let’s talk about that…

The unlock part of it all…

On the website they give this example of an ad being shown on a phone’s lock screen…

This it is just one of many examples that could be given. Your lock screen might display advertisements for deals, promos, content, and all sorts of things.

The example above shows that you can earn 50 points for swiping on the ad, but this is not all that common. Normally it is more like around 30 points or so that you can earn.

So, as I mentioned, how it works is you will be displayed an ad like this and you can swipe one direction to view the ad and the other direction to ignore it. You will earn points both ways but you are in a bit more if you choose to view the ad.

The other way to earn points

Besides unlocking your phone, you can also open up the app and go to the Earn More tab…

Here it is basically like a GPT (get paid to) program like Swagbucks, Inbox Dollars, etc. You will be able to earn points by watching videos, playing games, going to websites, and even by gambling… Which is most people’s favorite.

You can see in the screenshot above there is one offer that says “Bet Your Point & earn 10X”. This offer allows you to bet certain amounts of your points and possibly earn up to 10 times the amount back… All within a couple seconds… But of course you probably have a greater chance of losing points than gaining.


How many points will you earn?

There is no set amount of points that you can earn per swipe, but it is usually somewhere around 20 to 30 points. And you can’t turn this amount every single swipe. It is not like you can just sit there all day swiping your phone over and over again. They call them “every hour points” because, based on what I know, you can only earn points swiping once per hour.

This makes sense. And if they let people just sit there all day swiping, this place would have been out of business a long time ago.


 

Getting Paid… How Much Are Points Worth?

One big question is how much of these points worth?

The answer here seems to vary. Based on what I have seen one dollar is equal to around 2,500~ 2,800 points or so.

Once you have accumulated enough points you will be able to exchange them for a number of gift cards that actually have real value. I’m talking about places like Amazon, Walmart, Target, iTunes, Starbucks, Burger King, Nike and a bunch more. And you will be happy to know that they do have PayPal gift cards as well, which are always nice to see because you can use this money for anything.


 

Complaints

Overall I think this is a good app and there really aren’t all that many complaints. However, there are a few and some worth mentioning include…

Very Little Pay

Obviously you are going to make all that much with this app. This should be seen as a way to make a little bit of extra pocket change doing what you already do… Which is unlock your phone screen.

If you do download this app with the thoughts of being able to make significant income then you’re just going to be largely disappointed.

Makes Your Phone Lag a Bit

Another complaining is that it does make your phone lag a bit. What I mean by this is that it might take a second or two for the unlock screen to load up with the advertisement being displayed. But this depends on your phone and the Internet connection you have I imagine.


 

Scam? No… But Don’t Expect Much!

So is the Fronto app a scam? Is there some nasty little scam going on here that is just going to rip you off somehow?

You can see by now that the answer is no. This is a good legitimate app that you really can make money off of just by unlocking your phone screen, and of course along with doing other things like playing games, gambling, etc. if you want to.

That said, I have seen some very misleading promotions out there for this app. The reason for these is because people are trying to make money through the referral program and are luring people in by making this sound better than it really is. In fact, I’ve literally seen at least one person saying that you can make a quick $100 within an hour of using this app, which is simply not even close to being the reality.

So just know what to expect if you do download this app. You certainly aren’t going to make much money, but you will make some money… Very easily.


 

Conclusion – Worth Downloading?

All-in-all I like what I see with this app. It offers people in incredibly easy way to make a little bit of extra money doing what they already do. And who doesn’t like the sounds of that?

Sure, there are some downsides… But they aren’t really anything to worry about in my opinion.

I like what this app is doing. I agree that advertising can be annoying, and having advertisements on your lock screen seems like it could be just too much, but this app goes about it in a nonintrusive way and I like that.

So if you are thinking about downloading this app and you like what you hear, I would say go for it.

But again… Just don’t expect to make much! If you are looking for a way to possibly make a substantial amount of money online then I would suggest that you take a look at how I do so here.

Review of The Fearless Momma by Tammy Montgomery – Scam System?

So I recently came across this new system called The Fearless Momma by Tammy Montgomery that can supposedly make you easy payments of $250… But can it really? That is the question.

As with any “make money online” system, it is always a good suggestion to do a little digging around and research into things before getting involved, due to all the scams that are out there.

But is this the real deal? Or is The Fearless Momma system a scam itself… Something that you should be avoiding and that is just going to be a waste of your time and money?

Well… In this review I’m going to be giving you an overview of the system and breaking it apart so you can get a good picture of what you are looking at here.


 

The Fearless Momma System Review

What probably lead you to this system was in email from someone talking about some new awesome way to make money online. You probably click the link in that email and it then eventually lead you to a short video presentation by Tammy.

In the video presentation she talks about collecting leads online that will convert into $250 payments. She even claims that you will be able to make your first $250 in the next 72 hours and that this whole system works on autopilot… Which sounds pretty darn awesome.

She goes on to say that a system like this has never been created before, but this is something I beg to differ with. There are lots of “easy money systems” out there that are incredibly similar to this. It kind-of reminds me of systems like the Wifi Wealthy System.

And the unfortunate fact is that most of the similar systems that come to mind usually don’t last all that long… They have their run but then they fade away and disappear, since they weren’t all that great of systems to begin with.

But is this different? I get that it has done wonders for Tammy, giving her the time freedom to be able to get in shape and lose 100 pounds. But let’s be real here… What we want to know is if the system will actually make us money.

When you land on the video presentation, there are supposedly three steps that you are supposed to follow…

Step 1:

This consists of just watching the short video that basically tells you what I just went over above. You are told about how the system can make you $250 payments, how you will be able to get tons of leads daily, and so on…

Step 2:

Step 2 is to claim your bonus, which is called “kick butt solo ad swipe”…

What the heck is this “kick butt solo ad swipe”?

Well… What an ad swipe is, is a short email template. Basically this is just in email template that Tammy put together that you will be able to use to recruit other leads into the system… Which you will see this is all about.

It is a short PDF file that you can download as you can see…

Step 3:

When you get to step 3 there is a video from some guy named “Timothy Berger”, and this is all about how he is making money from the system when he is sleeping and things like that…

There really isn’t much substance to this video it all.

And after going through this short series of 3 steps, you are still probably wondering what the heck you’re getting into. There isn’t really a high level overview given at this point and it may be confusing, which is why I am going to break it all down for you and explain exactly what is going on here and how it works…


 

How It Works

So she talks about these leads that she is getting and how when you entered your email address before being directed to the video, you were added to either her list, or someone else’s list. You know, remember a page like this where you had to enter your email…?

In a nutshell, what you are doing is buying into the system and then promoting the system to other people in order to get them to buy in. And of course you will be making money when you recruit others in.

A better step-by-step explanation is like this…

1) You Buy In for $250

Of course the first step is to actually buy The Fearless Momma system. This will cost you $250 and, not only will you be provided with training, but you will also get the rights to resell the system to other people… Which is the whole point.

2) You run ads

Then you will promote the system by running ads in by other marketing means. She mentions the use of solo ads at one point but doesn’t go into much detail.

With solo ads you will basically be paying someone who has an email list to send out promotional emails to all of their subscribers.

There is also some mention of running Facebook ads.

But anyways… The point is you have to run ads or promote in some way… And if you want results within 72 hours, you are more than likely going to have to run some ads and pay some money up front.

3) You send people to landing pages and collect their emails

The ads that you will run will send people to a lead capture page like the one that I showed above, where people have to enter their email address before proceeding forward. This will allow you to build your own email list so that you can bombard the heck out of them with promotional emails for The Fearless Momma system.

4) You email them promoting The Fearless Momma

Then you will proceed to bombard them with emails about this awesome new money making system… Using “add swipes” like the one that is provided to you. You know, that PDF that I showed you above.

5) You get paid $250 when other people join the system through you

And then of course when the people you are promoting this to buy into the system, you will earn $250 for each person.

The way the system is set up, you will actually be paid directly. I noticed on the order page that the payment processor is Stripe. So likely what you are going to be doing is opening a Stripe account, if you don’t already have one, and hooking it up directly to the system. This is all similar to a program I was involved with a while back called Kypron, not that it matters.


 

The Training

The training consists of seven different modules. Now I’m not going to lie to you and say that I went to the training, because I didn’t. But, from the outside this is the information I could gather from these different training modules, which really isn’t all that much…

  • Module 1

    • This module mostly focuses on mindset. It’s all about getting in the right mindset to set yourself up for success.
  • Module 2
    • This also seems to be focused a lot on mindset as well as creating an environment around you that doesn’t bring you down and lessen your chances of success.
  • Module 3
    • Here there is a focus on creating a set schedule for putting in the work on this.
    • This is something I strongly believe in if you are wanting to make it. If you don’t have some sort of schedule you will likely fade away and give up.
  • Module 4
    • It looks like you learn a bit about how the processing of payments works in this one.
  • Module 5
    • This is all about being prepared for when something bad happens, such as if a payment account gets shut down.
    • It’s about learning new skills that you will never lose.
  • Module 6
    • She mentions talk about some “secret income weapon” that only a few people know about.
  • Module 7
    • Here you learn how to set up the sales process and go about daily operations with this system.

In addition to the modules, there is also bonus material given.

One thing that I did notice about the training is that there seems to be a lot of extra stuff mixed in… Good information about lots of aspects of running an online business that you might not think about. It is not just step 1) you do this, step 2) you do that, step 3) and this… type of deal. This is nice to see because it shows that the creators aren’t just trying to get by with providing the bare minimum.


The Problems This Has

Right now you might be thinking that this sounds pretty awesome… All you have to do is promote the system that has already been put in place and you can start receiving $250 payments. However, it isn’t all that awesome and I will explain why…

Oversaturation

the first problem that this has is oversaturation. This system is going to be creating an army of people that are also promoting the system… And there’s going to be a snowball effect where a bunch of people are promoting this same system to no end. To make matters even worse, many of the people are going to be using the premade email templates that are provided and it is just going to become incredibly oversaturated.

This is a problem you often see with systems like this.

Reliance on the System

Another problem that I see is that people are going to be too reliant on the system to make money. Sure, you can buy into this, promote it, and make money… But what happens when the system goes away? Then what? The problem is you didn’t learn all that much because it was basically just a “plug and play quote type of system. Sure, you learned some things about advertising and whatnot, but really not all that much.

Provides Little Value

And the last problem that I want to discuss, not that is the last problem areas, is that this system really doesn’t provide all that much value. Just think about it… The goal here is to make money by selling a system to people with the sales pitch of telling them that they can also make money with this system… And then they are going to go out and promote the system as a way to make money. It is just one big massive scheme cycle.

Sure… There will be things that you learn, as I just mentioned, that you will be able to apply to other online businesses, but you just really aren’t getting all that much here.


 

It’s Not a MLM or Pyramid Scheme, But It Is Similar In a Way

If you are familiar with MLM’s and pyramid schemes, then you know that this is definitely not one of them. However, it is similar to many different MLM’s and pyramid schemes in a way.

What the heck do I mean?

Will what I am talking about here is that this system is all about recruitment. You buy in, and then your goal is to make money by recruiting others in. This is a big similarity to many of the MLM’s out there and just about every pyramid scheme out there.


Conclusion – Scam?

I definitely am not going to call The Fearless Momma system a scam… Well… Because I don’t think it is a scam. However, this is just not a system that I would personally recommend getting involved with, because I myself would definitely not get involved with it.

While I do think that Tammy, and anyone else who helped create this system, are really trying to help people make money online, this just isn’t the best way to go about doing it in my opinion. This just seems like another good case of a shortcut or an “easy way out”… That is promoted as some super easy way to make money online, and while that may be true to some extent, there are a lot of downsides because of that.

In addition, systems like this are never as easy as they seem and if you think you’re just going to buy into the system, start promoting it, and the money is just going to start flowing in… Well, you are in for a rude awakening. I have been involved in online marketing since 2015 and make a living online… It is never as simple as it seems.

 

But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my short review and found it helpful. Please leave any comments or questions down below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂 And if you want to check out my personal recommendation for beginners looking to make money online, I highly suggest taking a look at the post on how I went from $0 to over $6,000 a month online

Money Looper Is a Scam! – Review of Mike Thomas’ System

So there is this new system being promoted online called Money Looper that can supposedly make you a bunch of money with these “loopholes”, but can it really? Is this the real deal or is it just another stupid scam that is going to be a waste of your time and money?

And who is this “Mike Thomas” guy anyhow? Can you actually trust him?

Well… As soon as I came across the video presentation I knew I had to write a review on this, the reason being that this is just another stupid scam. I’m guessing that you are probably suspicious of this. After all, you are reading my review right now.

But anyways… In this review I am going to be going over why it is a scam and exposing the truth…


 

Money Looper Review

First off, the guy who recorded the video needs a better microphone. It sounds like he is in his garage working on his car at the time of the video recording… Not very clear cut audio and very unprofessional. When you expect some guy he was making millions of dollars automatically online to have a better microphone for recording a video like this?

I sure what… But anyways…

He claims that this is the “only one proven concept” that has made him millions online and he gives a sense of urgency by saying that the video could be taken down at any time, because of course the gurus out there are trying to stop him.

He supposedly is making all this “huge automatic income” by using “other people’s efforts” and claims that it is “stupidly effortless”.

The guy goes on to talk about how 99.5% of systems out there are scams, but of course this is different. His system is all about stopping the scammers… Or at least that is what he tells you. But, truth be told, at this point is system is very much sounding more and more like a scam itself.

Near the middle of the video presentation you find out that the guy goes by the name of “Mike Thomas” and supposedly has had one heck of a rough life… Working as a janitor, losing his job and really struggling… And then finally come across this way to make money online.


 

Lots of Red Flags

The entire background story just sounds way too good to be true. I mean this guy sounds like a modern-day Robin Hood trying to stop these greedy online marketing gurus and giving money to normal people, like you and I.

And then the whole “money loophole” thing just sounds a bit strange. It seems that just about every scam out there claims to have some “secret” or has discovered some “loophole” to make you money.


 

Re-hashed Old Scam?

It wasn’t until he started talking about how he used to be a janitor that I started realizing that this is just a rehashed old scam. And then, after reading another review I found online my realization was further confirmed.

You see, a while back I reviewed this system called Rich Janitor. It had the same sort of sales pitch… A guy talking about how he used to be a janitor at a school struggling to get by, and that up getting scammed a bunch online, and then as he was trying to take revenge he discovered some new way to make money, which is what he is now trying to sell to you.

However… The strange thing is that in this other Rich Janitor scam the guy’s name was Mike Dee… But I’m guessing he is the same guy as this “Mike Thomas” character.

Likely both of the names are completely fabricated and made up. Of course when you are scamming people by selling a scam system like this Money Looper crap, you don’t want to use your own name.


 

How You Supposedly Make Money

Well at first you are led to believe that there is some “loophole” that you are filling. He claims that the one guru scammed him and his wife had some loopholes in his affiliate marketing model, which he was able to then make money off of.

He then says he hired some programmers on Craigslist and developed a software for identifying these loopholes.

But what the heck are these loopholes? Well… When he explains it more just sounds like normal affiliate marketing. He talks about how you promote products online via affiliate links and whenever someone clicks on your link and purchases the product, you get paid a commission… That is just regular old affiliate marketing which I am very familiar with (I make a living affiliate marketing).


 

Things Just Don’t Add Up

Not much of what he tells you actually adds up.

First he tells you that he needs your help to make money with this system and you are led to believe that you are somehow going to help him make more money. But then later he tells you that you just need your help to stop the gurus from making all the money, which doesn’t really seem to benefit him at all financially.

In that is just one of the many things that doesn’t really make much sense. Seems that most of what he tells you is a bunch of hype and “fluff”.


 

Its Not a System

After watching the video presentation you probably think you’re getting some system. After all, he tells you that his team has developed this software that identifies these loopholes. You probably think that you simply “plug and play”, without doing any work.

However, later in the video presentation he talks about how when you buy into this you will get a series of training videos where he shows you how to make money via affiliate marketing. Well… This doesn’t sound like much of a “system”, it sounds more like a training program that takes a lot of work.


 

Conclusion = Scam

While this might not be a complete scam I certainly am not going to recommend it to any of my readers and I’m sure a lot of other people out there would rather call it a scam than legitimate.

Just think about it… You are misled through the entire video presentation, you are never really given a straightforward answer on how you will make money, we don’t even know if this guy “Mike Thomas” even exists, and so on.

Can you really trust this place?

Heck no… You will probably just get a bunch of low quality training if you do buy into it that will just lead you down the wrong path and waste a bunch of your time.

As I mentioned earlier, I actually make a living doing affiliate marketing online and have been making money with this since 2015. If you want my advice, start with the Wealthy Affiliate training program. They provide the tools and training you need to get started… And I have never seen a better program.

10 Minute Millionaire Review – Another Scam?

Can anyone follow the 10 Minute Millionaire strategy by DR Barton Jr. and become a millionaire? Is it really that simple? Or is this all just one massive scam that is going to be a waste of your time and money?

Now I would be completely okay with "12 minute millionaire" or even "11 minute millionaire", but "10 Minute Millionaire"??… This just seems a little bit too good to be true.

But seriously… All jokes aside… There is a heck of a lot of hype surrounding this and it is no wonder why you are wondering if it is a scam or not. You have to be cautious these days. There are way too many scams out there and if something sounds a little bit too good to be true, often times it is.

But anyways… In this review I will be going over what exactly 10 Minute Millionaire is, what you get if you buy into it, what real subscribers are saying about it, and ultimately whether or not it is a junk scam or worth the money.

Spoiler alert: This is not the amazing moneymaker that you are led to believe it is.

The 10 Minute Millionaire Review

Product Type: Investment newsletter service

Editor: D.R. Barton Jr

Publisher: Money Map Press

Cost: $299/yr

Recommended?: Not really; you will see why

The 10 Minute Millionaire

Overview: What Is The 10 Minute Millionaire?

Okay… So what the heck is this to begin with?


Well… There is the book by DR Barton Jr called 10 Minute Millionaire and then there is his subscription newsletter service called 10 Minute Millionaire.


The book basically describes his strategy and is a lure to get people to buy into his subscription service. In the subscription service is one where he recommends different trades every month that you can follow along with and hopefully make money based on his expert investment advice.


I have seen promotions for his services where he claims that people can start using his strategy to bring in thousands of dollars per month, and it doesn't matter your age, gender, income, or even starting investment. Now I completely understand that it doesn't matter your age or gender… But it definitely matters what your starting investment is. When it comes to investing the potential returns you can receive are directly affected by your starting investment… Everyone knows that.



The Book


As I mentioned, this book is focused on the strategy that Mr. Barton created. The book got its name because he claims this strategy only takes 10 minutes of time per day and is the "most simple" and "most lucrative" trading strategy out there.


In fact, he even claims that it is the "secret anyone can use to turn $2500 into $1 million or more"


But most of the promotional material is a bunch of crap, and this book is nowhere nearly as amazing as you are led to believe. Just take a look at some of the many negative reviews from Amazon, where it is also sold...


The Subscription Service


And then there is the subscription service. With this service you get a monthly newsletter on new investment opportunities, you get weekly updates, alerts if there is anything Mr. Barton recommends doing immediately, and more.


Basically you get to follow along with Mr. Barton's current recommendations and this takes the guesswork out of investing.


His strategy is based around finding what he calls "extremes", which are anomalies in the market that have high potential to increase drastically in price, thus hopefully earning you a ton of money.


Besides the normal 10 Minute Millionaire subscription service, he also offers a higher tier service called the 10 Minute Millionaire Pro, which is an upsell that will be pushed upon you if you do subscribe to his normal service. I'm not sure exactly how much it costs, but I'm guessing it's pretty expensive.



The Lure


As I mentioned, the promotional material out there that is being used to lure people into this subscription service is pretty darn misleading.


There is one teaser floating around called "Federal Rent Checks", which I actually wrote a review on, that basically leads people to believe that all they have to do is put their name on some list to begin collecting monthly checks due to some law passed by Congress.


The sales pitch is absolutely ridiculous and much of it is complete BS. The real opportunity that he is talking about is investing in companies that collect rent from federal agencies and pay out dividends to shareholders.


And of course the lure is that you can get your piece of the pie for free, all you have to do is sign up for his newsletter.

Who Is D.R. Barton?

You might not have a very good opinion of Mr. Barton if you just watched one of his promotional videos. They are a bit over-the-top and ridiculous. However, he is someone who definitely knows what he is doing.


Apparently he first started dabbling in the stock markets when he was working as a chemical engineer at DuPoint and ended up doing pretty bad, realizing that the common trading strategies out there don't work very good.


This led him to create his own trading strategy based on his knowledge of physics rather than economics. In the story goes that this strategy works so well he quit his job and started working as a hedge fund manager.


Today he is featured on places like FOXBusiness and CNBC, as well as being a New York Times bestseller.


He seems like he knows what he is doing… But is his subscription service really worth it? 


Let's first take a look at what you get is a subscriber…

What You Get as a Subscriber to His Service

In a nutshell what you get is advice. You are provided with the recommended picks from Mr. Barton and his team but you are still responsible for making the trade yourself.

  • Copy of His Book
    • You get a copy of the 10 Minute Millionaire book that I talked about. He claims that this is a New York Times bestseller, but I couldn't really find any information on this.
  • Income Ledger
    • This is a notebook that you can use to keep track of your finances.
  • Guide to Money Management
    • Here he strays a bit from the main focus. This is about other opportunities out there that exist.

  • VIP Card
    • This is just the access to get to the concierge service.

Subscriber Reviews... Is It Really Worth It?

Well it seems like you get a lot, but is what you are getting actually any good? In order to answer this question is always a good idea to look at real subscriber reviews. 


Unfortunately things aren't too good based on what I found… It has a rating on Stock Gumshoe of 1.7 out of 5 stars... not too pretty...

One of the reviews worth mentioning that I found talks about how it all seems to be a money sucking scheme. Basically they lure you in with the one subscription and then promote a bunch of other ones to you trying to get you to buy in…

No Refunds...

I also noticed that there are no refunds available for this subscription. Once you sign up, there's no getting that money back. I think this is something that I definitely need to warn you about because they are not very straightforward in telling you this.


You also have to be careful because once you sign up, which costs $299 by the way, you will automatically be charged another $299 the following year if you forget to cancel.


But this type of shady behavior comes as no surprise to me, after all… It is published by place called Money Map Press.

The Shady Publisher Behind This Subscription

Money Map Press is the company that publishes the 10 Minute Millionaire newsletter service in unfortunately they're not exactly a place that many people would want to put their trust in.


This place offers a number of different financial subscription services with a number of different editors. DR Barton Jr is just one of them and 10 Minute Millionaire is just one of the many newsletter services. Fast Fortune Club and Money Map Report are two other services that I've reviewed here which receive a lot of complaints.


However.... They all are very similar. Of course they all have the common theme of being investment focused newsletters, and they also all get a lot of complaints about them.


Complaints like false advertising, no refunds offered, being charged without knowing it, the services being a waste of money, recommended trades seem to be given late, and so on.


I took a screenshot of a couple complaints about this place from the popular complaint board called Pissed Consumer that you can take a look at…

The company has over 30 reviews and an average rating of around 1.5 out of 5 stars... also not very pretty.

Scam or Not?

I do not think I would go as far to call this a scam, but this isn't really a place I would recommend getting involved with. Based on what I see, you just really can't trust this place all that much.


The incredibly misleading advertising tactics that they employ need to be stopped. They lead people to believe that they're going to be able to make super easy money when the reality is much different. And unfortunately we have no idea how well this investment advisement service really performs because, like many similar services out there, they only seem to publicize the trades that have made a lot of money while sweeping all of the bad recommendations under the rug.

Conclusion

I don't think I found one positive review out there that actually seems to be legitimate. Sure, you will find some positive reviews but often times the people writing them are getting paid to write them.


While I don't disagree with the fact that you can probably make money with this advisement service, there is no way I'm going to be recommending it to my readers. There are much better services out there in my opinion… Ones that are much more trustworthy and that do not lure people in with the hopes and dreams of making tons of easy money.



But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. If you have any comments about the 10 Minute Millionaire would love to hear them in the comment section below. Please also leave any questions down there and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

“Brands You Need” is a Scam! – Will You Make $350 Easily? NOPE!

There is this survey opportunity being advertised called “Brands You Need” that claims you can make $350 with them, which is a heck of a lot for any paid survey opportunity. But is it just another scam? Or is this the real deal?

The advertising is quite misleading. They just tell you that you can earn your first $350 by “sharing your honest feedback with top brands” but do not indicate the time span this will take. Now if it is going to take 10 years to make that $350, then this is nothing special, but if you can make that $350 in a month, that is pretty darn good.

But anyways… The point of me writing this review is to expose this place for what it really is, which is a SCAM. This is definitely not something I recommend getting involved with and in this review you will see why I am saying this. And if you do get involved you will regret it.


 

Brands You Need Review

One of the first things that I noticed when I came across the website, besides the fact that it sounded too good to be true, was that although the site was called “Brands You Need”, in the browser tab it was saying “Survey Voices”, which is a survey company that I am all too familiar with…

If you look up “Survey Voices scam” on Google you will find plenty of results. This place often misrepresents the opportunities it provides and lures people in by getting them to think that they are going to be making tons of super easy money, kind of like how this Brands You Need promotion is being advertised saying that you can make your first $350.

But anyways, you can read my review of Survey Voices for more info if you want to.


 

My Dreadful Experience With Brands You Need

Although I was pretty certain that this whole thing was a scam, I decided to enter my email on the main page and click the Start Now button to see what this opportunity had in store for me.

After submitting my email, I was then taken to the next page in which I had to confirm my ZIP Code and agree to receive emails from Survey Voices and a couple other survey research sites. Of course I didn’t want to agree to receive emails from these places, but I had no choice so I checked the box anyhow…

After that I was taking through a series of questions that was supposedly part of the qualifying survey. They said it would help me get matched up with the top paid surveys so I completed them.

This is short qualifying survey had questions like…

  • have I ever met a celebrity?
  • do I own an Amazon Alexa?
  • what is my income level?
  • what stores do I shop at?
  • am I a home owner?
  • do I want to save on my electricity bill?
  • what is my cable provider?

The survey started off harmless and it didn’t seem to make much sense, but then started asking me more “salesy” questions like if I wanted to save on my electricity bill, which cable provider I have, and so on. I’ve seen this kind of thing before… At this point I was guessing that after finishing the survey they were probably going to bombard me with a bunch of promotions based on the answers I gave.

After the survey was complete, the next step was to finish my registration and then agree to receive text messages and calls from their “marketing partners”. Yes… You seriously have to agree to receive calls and texts from marketing partners, which basically means you’re going to start receiving a bunch of sales calls and promotional tax, and who doesn’t want that?

Unfortunately, there was no option to decline this, so I confirmed, after entering a fake phone number of course, and continued on…

Sure enough, just as I was expecting and I mentioned earlier, after this was complete I was bombarded with a series of “exclusive offers”. The first was whether or not I wanted to get a loan of up to $30,000 in which I could buy a new car with…

 

And then of course I qualified for a Visa prepaid card… You know… Just because I guess I’m just the perfect fit for a Visa prepaid card…

I decline both of these offers and continued on.

And it was my lucky day… I soon found out that I qualified for a $350 survey check… Yippiee!!!…

But of course this is just another extremely misleading advertisement. As you can see, this ad is for National Consumer Center which is largely regarded as a fraud. In fact, if you go on Pissed Consumer you will find that they have well over 200 complaints about them.

After declining this offer, I was finally taken to the “top paid survey” matches that I was promised at the beginning of taking that stupid qualifying survey…


I was recommended survey sites like Swagbucks, VIP Voice, i-Say, Survey Junkie and others. Supposedly these are the perfect matches for me. However, I highly doubt it.

All of the survey sites that they recommended me to join are your typical paid survey sites. I don’t see any reason to believe that these are better matches for me than dozens of other paid survey sites out there. I think this is just another promotion so that this Brands You Need scam, which of course is run by Survey Voices, can make money.

I also want to point out that beside each of the survey sites they say that there are “only 18 spots left!” And things like this. This is completely untrue. Anyone can join these websites and I have never seen them put a limit on the number of available openings.


 

Another Data Harvesting Scam

All in all, this seems to be another example of what I call it a “data harvesting” scam. They lure you in with the hopes and dreams of making easy money, but it is all about getting you to give up some personal data so that they can shove different promotions down your throat and allow other “marketing partners” to do the same.

It may seem harmless, but it is all about them being able to make money off of you by suckering you into providing information for marketing purposes.

Luckily when I was going through this whole process, I was already fairly certain it was a scam from the start. Because of this I used an email address that I didn’t really care about and not give them my real phone number. If I would have, I would shortly be bombarded with tons of emails on a daily basis and start receiving phone calls and texts for other promotional offers.

I have reviewed similar scams in the past and it is not uncommon for people to receive 50+ spam emails the day after providing their email to a data harvesting scam like this.


 

This Place Wants Nothing More Than to Make Money From You

First they make money by the promotions that are supposedly “exclusive offers” that they bombard you with after the short qualifying survey you take. And then after that they recommend a bunch of typical paid survey sites that they lead you to believe are the best fits for you.

It is all about the money. They get paid for the “exclusive offers” they are promoting as well as the different survey sites.


Legit Paid Survey Opportunities, But Not a $350 Check!

Now I will say that all of the recommended survey sites are legitimate. Swagbucks, Survey Junkie, i-Say surveys, these are all legitimate paid survey sites. HOWEVER, don’t expect a $350 check from many of them!

They lure you in with this extremely misleading number of $350. Paid survey sites pay out very little and making $350 will take you a heck of a long time with any of the sites. And when I say long, I mean it. It would be an impressive feat to be able to make $350 in an entire year at any of these websites. Usually you make much less than minimum wage once you do all the math, since many of the surveys offered pay less than a dollar and you are often disqualified.


 

Conclusion = Not a Good Opportunity

If you still are interested in joining a paid survey site to make a bit of extra pocket change in your spare time, I would recommend  Swagbucks because I know they are legitimate and they offer a lot of different ways to make money, but to be honest I don’t really recommend any paid survey site.

Paid survey sites in my opinion are largely a waste of time… They take up a lot of time and pay you very little for it.

If you are at all interested in making substantial money online, I would highly recommend taking a look at how I went from $0 to over $6,000 a month online.

Veganism is a wave of the future and there is no stopping it. It is growing in popularity and I only foresee it continuing to do so as our environmental problems continue to pile up. We have seen massive rises in plant-based foods, supplements, personal care products, fashions, and vegan things in a number of other industries.

And besides helping save the planet, another perk of this new and emerging market is that you can make money from it. There are a lot of affiliate programs out there and I'm going to show you some of the best of them… 13 of them to be exact.

So if you have a passion for health, helping animals and just overall being good to our environment… And you want to make a little bit (or a lot) of money promoting awesome products via affiliate marketing then stay tuned…

I have broken up the list into four different categories: We have the vegan food/nutrition affiliate programs, vegan e-product affiliate programs, the vegan fashion affiliate programs, and vegan cosmetics affiliate programs. So no matter what type of vegan products you are looking to promote, I'm sure there is a program on this list that will suit your needs.


Vegan Food/Nutrition Affiliate Programs

By the way... These are listed in no particular order. One affiliate program might be great for somebody while another might be better for somebody else.


#1 - Vegan Cuts

Vegan Cuts

First off we have Vegan Cuts. This program offers..

I'm listing this particular program in the food/nutrition section, but really they have a lot more than just food and nutrition. They sell all sorts of vegan products and could be a good choice for a number of vegan audiences. Some of the things they sell include vegan chocolates, shampoo, lipstick, juices, organic green smoothie mix, and more.

On the one bullet point above I wrote that they offer $3 commissions on boxes. What am talking about here are product packages that they sell in boxes. For example they have their Beauty Box that is filled with vegan cosmetic and skin care products, all bundled up in one package. They also have their Snack Box that is filled with vegan chips, cookies, sodas and more.

This place offers a subscription service where customers can sign up to receive boxes every month. However, I'm not sure if you will be able to earn recurring commissions for their recurring payments.

All in all, this is a pretty solid brand with a lot of good products.



#2 - Vegin Out

Vegin Out

Vegin Out is an incredibly tasty vegan meal plan provider that runs an affiliate program in which...

This seems to be a rather small company, but don't let that fool you. They have some pretty good products, which consist of prepared meals, and you can definitely make some good money from this.

They prefer that affiliates promote to the Los Angeles area since this is where the headquarters are located and where the food is prepared, but this is not absolutely necessary because they do have nationwide shipping… Meaning you can promote it nationwide.

This place also offers recurring meal plans but again, I am not completely sure whether you will receive recurring commissions or only get paid for the first order a customer makes.

The meals are top-notch and are prepared by a vegan chef that has written volumes of vegan cookbooks. They have a lot of really nice meals and just as I was looking at them a minute ago before writing this, I was getting incredibly hungry. They have Veggie Korma, Sweet and Sour Veggies and Tofu, Pasta Primavera, Peanut Quinoa and more.

Some of the perks to the affiliate program in particular are that you do not need a website. You can promote this on social media, to a mailing list, etc and the sales range from $99-$619.99… Which means there's the potential to earn some pretty high commissions.

The affiliate program is run by ShareASale.



#3 - UrthBox

Urthbox

UrthBox is another great choice for all my vegan affiliates out there. Some highlights include:

What is UrthBox? This is a company that gives members a way to discover new healthy foods. In a nutshell, this place is a membership service that delivers boxes of gourmet foods, snacks, beverages, personal care products and more each month… Each box over $50 in retail value.

What they do is select new products to include in their boxes from known and upcoming brands. All the products are analyzed and each ingredient is looked at to make sure members are getting the best of vegan products at good prices.

You don't really know what you're going to get which makes this a fun way to learn about and experience new products you might not have otherwise came across.

People are able to buy Mini Boxes for $19.99 per month or Large Boxes for $49.99 per month. They also sell gift boxes that cover six months and cost as much as $269.99. However, it seems that no matter what type of box you sell you will still get the same $17 commission.

Its a nice little vegan service that I think a lot of people will enjoy, I just wish the affiliate program was a bit more lucrative.



#4 - Ground-Based Nutrition

Ground-Based Nutrition

Ground-Based Nutrition is a place that I really like. The name says it all… Everything comes from the ground.

In particular, this is a great affiliate program for someone in the vegan fitness niche… Whether that be vegan bodybuilding, vegan powerlifting, vegan CrossFit, etc.

They have a nice selection of plant-based products that include protein powders, pre-workouts, electrolyte supplements, digestion aids and more.

Details of the affiliate program are as follows…

Like every other company featured on this list, the products that this place manufactures are good quality and top-notch. So you don't have to worry about potentially promoting a bunch of crappy products that people are going to be angry with.

They claim that their average order size is $80. Now I do not know how true this is, but if this is true then that means the average commission would be eight dollars… Nothing amazing but nothing horrible either.

To help you get started as an affiliate you will be assigned your own affiliate manager to help guide you and provide support. You will also be provided with banners and have the ability to have the design team costom make banners for your promotional needs.



#5 - Thrive Market

Thrive Market

Next on the list is Thrive Market. This place isn't strictly a vegan food market, but it does have a rather large vegan section that is absolutely filled with products. In all, this place carries non-GMO, organic, gluten-free and vegan food/products.

How it works is members can join and save 25 to 50% from their massive marketplace filled with various brands and tons of products.

The affiliate program is run through Commission Junction and some of the highlights are:

Food, beverages, beauty products, personal care products, baby products, pet products, and more… There are plenty of products to choose from which makes this affiliate program attractive for people of various different micro-niches inside the vegan niche.

When you refer a new member they first get to take part in a 30 day free trial, in which after they will have to pay the $59.95 for the yearly membership… But even after that you don't get paid. You don't get paid your $25 commission until the customer makes their first purchase.

But besides making money, another good thing about this program is that it helps out the community. For every person that you get to join they give a free membership to a low income family.


Vegan e-Product Affiliate Programs

And next up are the vegan e-product affiliate programs. E-products can be things like e-books, digital programs, training guides and so on.

Not only do the affiliate programs listed below sell vegan related e-products... It is also nice to think that e-products in of themselves are pretty environmentally friendly and thus widely vegan approved.


#6 - Nutriciously

Nutriciously

Nutritiously's affiliate program pays out some pretty darn good commissions and they have some nice cookies that last for 30 days. All in all, if you have the right audience this can be a fairly lucrative affiliate program. But you will need a website.

Nutritiously sells different vegan related e-guides (if you want to call them that).

One of their guides, called From A to Vegan: The Complete Starter Kit, is basically a series of e-books that helps people become vegans. It can be a difficult procedure for someone to switch over to a vegan lifestyle. If you are someone who was in the process of doing this, or who has done it recently then I am sure you are well aware of this. A lot of people give up with veganism and this is because they often take the wrong approach.

Another product they sell is called Losing Weight Effortlessly… And this is a series of three e-books that is all about losing weight on a plant-based diet.

Anyone can join this program, even if you are outside the US, but of course it is a requirement to have a PayPal account in order to get paid, so some countries might be off limits because of this requirement.


#7 - No Meat Athlete

No Meat Athlete

The No Meat Athlete affiliate program might be worth joining if you have an audience that is vegan and is interested in races, specifically marathons and triathlons… Although their products may also convert well for similar types of athletes.

This affiliate program pays out 50% commissions and you may be happy to hear that you don't even need a website to promote it.

You may have never heard of No Meet Athlete before but they have actually been featured in Runners World, WebMD, SHAPE, zenhabits, and others.

Just to give you an idea of what you could promote here, their products include the Triathlon Roadmap and Marathon Roadmap, Wake Up which is an e-book on positive lifestyle changes, and Fuel Your Run the Tarahumara Way which provides recipes and info about what you can eat as vegan fuel.

But not all of their products are simple e-books. For example, the Marathon Roadmap includes not just an e-book for guidance, but also gives you a weekly check-in video to keep track of your fitness goals.

These products range in price from around $17 to around $67.… Which means you could earn around $8.50 to $33.50 per sale.



#8 - Clickbank

Now if you are familiar with ClickBank then vegan probably isn't the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of them. However, they are definitely a darn good affiliate program out there for people looking to promote vegan e-products and I'll prove it.

Some highlights to this affiliate program include…

As you may know, ClickBank is in a way similar to eBay. They are basically marketplace where individuals can easily and safely sell their own products to buyers. They started out as a strictly digital product platform but have since expanded to now sell physical products as well.

There are plenty of vegan related products that you can promote as an affiliate. Just as an example, here are some digital e-book type products I came across within no time…

And as an affiliate you can even promote high-quality vegan physical products as well, such as these green smoothie powders…

The commissions that you can make will vary a lot because it all depends on the seller, but I have seen some products on ClickBank offering over 75% commissions and based on what I saw with the vegan related products, there are some decent commissions out there waiting to be made.

ClickBank products also often have pretty high conversions because people with online marketing experience often create them, and many of them have upsells which means the potential for making more money on top of the initial sale.


Vegan Fashion Affiliate Programs

And we can't forget about vegan fashion. There is an increased demand for cruelty-free clothing and accessories, whether they be made from fake leather, fake wool, etc. And here are some awesome affiliate programs you can get paid to promote such products for…


#9 - corkor

Corkor

Affiliate program highlights:

As you can probably tell by the name corkor, this company is all about selling cork based products.

They sell a number of different products, bags, wallets, belts and more… And while they may look like genuine leather, they are not. The material comes from a tree and is natural, sustainable, light, soft, water resistant, and resistant to abrasion

You can promote fashionable products for both men and women and it is all made from cork fabric, which comes from trees that are part of sustainably managed forests… All FSC certified.

The products are also created with love… Being handcrafted with the use of machinery instead of being manufactured on a mass scale.

Products range from around $10-$160, so there is the potential to earn some decent commissions.



#10 - Gunas

GUNAS

Gunas is another great affiliate program to join if you are looking to promote vegan fashion. They claim to be "America's first 100% vegan handbag brand", and while I do not know how true the statement is, regardless they are a good brand with a lot of good products. And… They have been around for a while, since 2009. 

Their affiliate program is run by ShareASale and some of the highlights of it are:

Bags, bags, and more bags. This place sells all sorts of bags from shoulder bags, to cross body bags, to clutches, backpacks, totes, and even wallets.

All of their products are 100% animal-free. There is no fur, wool, leather, silk, etc. Instead they use materials like eco-polyurethane, ultra-leather, ultra-suede, nylons and others.

It is also worth mentioning that they go beyond just manufacturing vegan bags. They are all around cruelty-free and make sure that their different manufacturer locations treat their workers fairly.

One thing that I like about this affiliate program is that, although the commissions start off pretty darn low at only 7%, you do have the ability to increase that percentage. There are also lots of expensive bags you can promote, some costing over $200 which could earn you some nice commissions.



#11 - thought

Thought Clothing

And then there is Thought… This is a good brand to promote to an audience that you think might be interested in clothing fashion. They have vegan clothing available for both men and women, and these include things like dresses, jackets, knitwear, leggings, socks, skirts, tops, trousers and more.

The materials used for the clothing include organic cotton, bamboo fiber, hemp, rayon from recycled tree pulp, and they also use tencel and modal that our first harvested from sustainable forests.

They have a wide variety of products and are not too crazy expensive… So if you have an audience that is looking for vegan fashion, but is on a budget, this might be right up your alley.

Making 6 to 12% commissions is nothing amazing, but they do claim that their conversion rate is around 7% which is pretty good.

The affiliate program is ran through LinkShare.


Vegan Cosmetics Affiliate Programs

And then we have vegan cosmetics affiliate programs...

#12 - The Detox Market

The Detox Market

The Detox Market was founded in Venice Beach back in 2010. They specialize in vegan cosmetic products such as skincare, makeup, hair care, fragrances, bath and body products, supplements and more… Which are all natural and cruelty-free, and are of the highest quality, being checked for purity before being sold.

Products from this place could convert well with several different types of vegan audiences. They have products that are focused on anti-aging, reducing wrinkles and stuff like that, and they also have makeup and fragrances… Which sometimes attracted two different audiences.

The affiliate program is run by ShareASale and some of the highlights include:

Most of their products aren't that expensive but they do have some that are well over $100 and that you could earn some nice commissions with.



#13 - 100% Pure

100% PURE

And last but definitely not least, we have a place called 100% Pure that is all about creating cosmetic products that are 100% pure with natural ingredients, containing no synthetic dyes, fragrances, etc.

Everything here comes from plants, the pigments, the fragrances, every part of the formula. And they go through a lot to make sure their customers get the best products. This place uses a patent pending formula based around stabilizing ingredients from oxidation so that they do not lose their potency.

So what you get is non-toxic, organic, vegan, biodegradable, and potent.

The affiliate program is powered by Commission Junction and offers…

Commissions our nothing amazing, and I'm not exactly sure how long the cookie link that is, but when perks of this affiliate program is that you don't need a website.


Promoting Vegan Products Like a Pro

There are a lot of different approaches you can take when it comes to promoting vegan products. One thing I would recommend is to choose a "micro-niche", which basically means to narrow down the larger vegan niche a bit to a smaller sub- niche. So instead of targeting vegans in general, try to target a specific type of vegans.

Just to give you an example, you could target vegans that are into leather fashion, fake leather fashion of course. You can promote all sorts of things such as wallet, belts, bags, etc. and join affiliate programs like Corkor and Gunas.

I would also highly suggest creating your own affiliate website. Yes, this can be a daunting task and it certainly may be more appealing to just go promote products without a website, but with a website you can definitely make more money.

You can check out my recommended training for building a website and creating your own affiliate marketing business for more info. This took me from $0 to over $6,000 dollars a month online.


But anyways… I hope you enjoyed this list and found it helpful. Please leave any comments, questions, or concerns below and I'll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂

Is Quidco a Scam or Do Members Really Earn £​300/yr on Average? – [Review]

Quidco is self proclaimed as “the UK’s number one cashback site”, but how good is this site really? Is this a cashback site that you can trust and make some decent money with? Or is this all just going to be a waste of time… A scam that isn’t going to pay you the cashback you deserve?

The last thing you want to get involved with is some sketchy cashback program that makes it very difficult for you to actually get your cash back. There are plenty of cashback programs out there so you are by no means limited with your choices. It is not like it is Quidco or nothing… You have options.

The question is… Is Quidco a good option? In this review I plan on answering exactly this. I’ll be going over what exactly this place is, how it works, the different cashback offers that they provide, how much money you can make in cashback, complaints and more.


Quidco Review

While I don’t know how true the statement of them being “the UK’s number one cashback site” is, they definitely are one of the bigger and more popular cashback sites in the UK out there, with over 7 million members and offers from over 4500 brands.

They have a lot of different cashback offers in all sorts of categories, some of which include…

  • Travel
    • Includes car rentals, flights, trains, parking, etc.
  • Electrical
    • This category includs a range of things going from TV’s, to computers, tablets, accesories, laptops, gadgets, and more.
  • Fashion
    • Here you can find cashback deals on clothing, bags, watches, sunglasses, etc.
  • Telecoms
    • Can get cashback on monthly cellular service, SIM cards, phone accessories, etc.
  • Insurance
    • Everyone needs some type of insurance and here you can find deals on health, life, car, home, pet, rental and other insurances.
  • Finance
    • This category has deals on bank accounts, credit ratings, credit cards, loans, etc.
  • Other categories include cars, food and drink, utilities, sports and fitness, supermarkets, pets, health and beauty, and more.

It it is common to see cashback offers for clothing, groceries, and so on, but seeing offers like this for insurance and telecom services is pretty cool.

As far as payments go, you can choose to receive your cashback via direct deposit, PayPal, or with an Amazon gift card.

They claim that their members earn an average of around £300 per year, but I have no idea how true that statement actually is. And I will admit it seems like a heck of a lot. I have reviewed many different cashback programs, including TopCashBack, Mr Rebates, Ibotta, DOSH, etc, and this seems a very high based on what I have seen.


How It Works

If you are unfamiliar with cashback programs, you may be wondering how these things work… How they are able to pay you money for buying things.

Well… The process is pretty simple. Basically Quidco and other cashback programs get paid to promote offers. They receive a commission when they help refer buyers, just like affiliate marketing, and then they give you a portion of this commission as an incentive to take the offer in the first place.

It is pretty much a win/win for all parties. The sellers are getting increased traffic from Quidco promoting their offers, Quidco is getting paid by the sellers for helping drive traffic there, and we (the customers) get cashback for things that we are going to pay for regardless.

 

The Process of Getting Cashback..

You are able to get cashback on offers by using their app or by logging in on a desktop computer, either way it is pretty self-explanatory.

You can browse “today’s hottest offers” which features some of the best offers currently available…

Or you can browse by category or even search in the search box for something you are looking for in particular.

They also have a list of the top offers this week that is displayed below the main menu. And currently, as I’m writing this, I see that there is a really good 22% cashback offer for Groupon…

Now if I wanted to take advantage of this offer I would simply click on it and then would be directed to another page which would basically give me more details about the offer, which you can see here…

Then all I would have to do is simply click on the “Get cashback” button next to the particular offer I want to get in it would then direct me to Groupon, or wherever it is that you want to shop, to make your purchase.

There is for you to do anything on your own to get your cashback. Your pay will automatically be tracked and the cashback will be credited into your account once the purchase is verified, which can take a while depending on what you bought.


 

How Much Money Can You Make In Cashback?

As I mentioned earlier, they claim that the average member who is active earns about £300 per year, which I’m hesitant to believe. What makes me even more hesitant to believe this number is that on their website they are saying two different things. As you can see below, in one spot they say that the average active member earns £300 a year and in another spot they say £280 a year…

Now there really isn’t too much of a difference between 300 and 280, but in my opinion both seem pretty darn high.

Unfortunately there are no statistics provided or any way for me to verify these numbers, or to try to figure out how much people are earning on average independently. That said, the amount you can earn with cashback programs is going to vary greatly depending on the person. Of course it all depends on what you are buying and how much you buy.

Someone who is getting cashback on expensive travel services is going to make a heck of a lot more cashback than someone who is just getting small amounts of cash back from grocery shopping or something like that.

I will say that they do offer some pretty high cashback percentages based on what I see and what I know from using and reviewing other cashback programs.


 

Referral Program

And of course, like all of these sorts of programs, they also have a referral program in place where you can earn a referral bonus for referring someone to join.

How it works is you get your own unique referral link and can share it with friends, or really wherever you want. Someone clicks on your link enjoins, you get credit for referring them. And after they earn £5 in cashback you will get your bonus.

I wasn’t able to find any information on how big of a bonus you actually get. I assume it is not much, but if anyone who is reading this knows, I would appreciate it if you would let me know in the comment section below this post.


 

Complaints

Overall the ratings this place receives from users are incredibly good. As you can see on Google Play it has an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars with around 10,000 reviews left…

And then on the site Trustpilot it has been over 55,000 reviews with an average of 4 out of 5 stars…

The ratings are so good in fact, that it makes me question whether or not they are legitimate. I have never reviewed a cashback program like this that has even come close to receiving the sheer amount of ratings that this place does… Not even close.

When I was looking on the Trustpilot website there were new reviews being left pretty much every minute…

Are these real reviews? Are they fake? Are people getting paid to leave them? Who knows… But it is strange and I thought it was worth mentioning.

But anyways… Even with all the good reviews there are always complaints. Some of the more common complaints that I came across include the following…

 

App Can’t Access Store

If you are using the app, some of the stores you may want to shop on are not fully compatible. So what you have to do is exit out of the app and go into the normal Internet browser to make your purchases. This can be annoying and there are some complaints I came across about it… However it is not that big of a deal.

Doesn’t Track Cashback

And then there is the common complaint about the cashback not being given out as it should have been. This is usually due to problems tracking your purchase and you will find this complaint with any cashback program out there.

It doesn’t happen often, but unfortunately sometimes there are problems with the tracking code and people don’t get credited for their purchases as they should. However, the good thing is that you can contact the support team and get your cashback manually if this happens.

Underpaid

This is one of the most common problems and complaints I came across when skimming through the reviews from users. Apparently sometimes people purchase things what they should get a certain amount of cashback, but end up receiving a lesser amount.

I don’t know exactly what goes on these particular situations, but it does seem that the support team is good at getting contact with these people who are complaining and helping them out.


 

Conclusion: Scam or Not?

I don’t see any reason to call Quidco a scam. The only people that are calling it a scam or the ones who have been underpaid, or maybe haven’t been credited with the cashback that they deserved, and instead of contacting support they started calling a scam instead.

This particular program has been around for a while and is one of the larger what is out there. They are pretty well trusted and they do pay, although there are some legitimate complaints about them. But all in all, they are pretty good.

Since you are interested in getting cashback, you might also want to look into Ibotta and DOSH. Ibotta is an app that is particularly good for getting cashback when grocery shopping and DOSH is a good cashback app for finding deals in your area.

 

But anyways… I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. Please leave any comments or questions down below and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can 🙂
