I hope you found this article helpful! I'm Kyle, the creator of this site, which is probably pretty obvious after seeing the name. Like most, I've had my fair share of difficulties and a pretty bumpy road while trying to find success online, which is why I put togetherthis guide so that others can get started right the first time around.

Bulletproof Profits Review – A Horrible Purchase!

Bulletproof Profits is very different from what you are told and you certainly will NOT “make up to $3,750 today with just 7 simple clicks”.

Is this just another scam? Yeah, pretty much it is, which I’m sure you were already suspicious of.

The video presentation is filled with all the common scam characteristics…

  • Massive income claims
  • Sounds incredibly easy
  • I’m “extremely lucky to be here right now”
  • “this page will be removed @ midnight”

Yep…. Sounds like a pretty typical online scam… kind of like the Spring Profits scam I exposed recently.

You are told that this system supposedly taps into some “secret online Goldmine” that is worth $685 billion and that you can easily make over $2000 a day with.

The guy that created the system is named “Justin Tyler” and throughout the video presentation he shows screenshots of large sums of money in his bank account…

But of course it is incredibly easy to fake income screenshots like this, so there is absolutely no way of knowing if this is real or not… And I’m guessing is more than likely fake.

And even if it was real, how would we know that this money came from using the Bulletproof Profits system? We wouldn’t…

Lots of Obvious Lies

It’s really hard to trust a system that has so many obvious lies surrounding it. For example, you are told that the video presentation will be taken down at midnight, but this is easily proven to be a lie.

This is something you can easily see for yourself as well. Just leave the page and come back the next day if you want to. It will still be there.

But anyways… You can’t always judge a book by its cover, even if it has an incredibly scammy cover, so let’s dig a little deeper into this review…

Bulletproof Profits Review

As mentioned, this “system” was created by a guy named “Justin Tyler”. HOWEVER, there’s a good chance this name is completely made up and fictitious. There is no proof offered that he actually exists and no verifiable information given.

I have reviewed countless scams over the years that have been promoted under fake names. Of course the real people behind scams don’t want you to know their names, because then you might show about their house and demand your money back or something like that.

In a nutshell this Bulletproof Profits “system” isn’t really a system at all. While you can possibly make money with what it provides you with, it is nowhere near the amazing money making opportunity that they lead you to believe it is and is certainly not anything I’m going to be recommending to my readers.

How The System Makes You Money..

Unfortunately in the video presentation you are not told any specific way that this system will be making you money. We know that it somehow profits from Amazon, but don’t know exactly how it does this., which is typical of a scam. Of course you have to buy into it before you actually know what you are getting into.

Are You Selling Products on Amazon?

Is the “system” going to be making money via Amazon FBA somehow??, which is when you have products that you store in Amazon’s warehouses and they take care of the fulfillment for you.

Are You Just Promoting Things?

Are you just going to be promoting products on Amazon through the Amazon Associates program? This would be affiliate marketing and you would earn commissions when you help make sales.

One Thing Is For Sure… IT WILL TAKE WORK

It doesn’t really matter which way this “system” is supposedly going to make you money. One thing is for sure, it WILL take work. This isn’t just going to “siphon” profits like the video leads you to believe.

AND… You certainly will not be making any money today. It doesn’t matter how you try to make money with Amazon, there is no way to make thousands of dollars within a day’s time, everything takes work to get set up and that takes time.

*More on how this makes money below.

The Hidden Cost

So when I went to purchase this product it was being sold at a 95% discount, or at least that’s what they said. Who knows if this is actually a discount or if they are just saying this to make it sound more enticing.

But anyways, the price was $9…

cost

HOWEVER, there were upsells, which were a heck of a lot more expensive than $9…

  • $197 – Bulletproof Profit Turbo
  • $145 – Bulletproof Paydays

What You Are Really Getting When You Buy This

Bulletproof Profits

You are led to believe that you are going to be getting some “system” which sounds like you can just plug into it and start making a bunch of money.

This is far from being the truth. Instead, when you buy in you get, as I was expecting, a bunch of really crappy training.

It seems that this “training course” goes over several different ways to make money with Amazon, and features a bunch of outdated and re-hashed videos/PDFs.

members area

It is far from being the “system” that you are led to believe it is.

Just About Everything Is a LIE

Pretty much everything about this place is a lie.

The income claims are probably a lie, you definitely aren’t going to make thousands of dollars on the first day like you are told, Justin Tyler is probably a made up name, and so on.

Even the “social proof” that was below the video presentation is a lie.

As you can see below, I did a reverse Google image search for one of the images and found that it is all over the place online, which more than likely means is a stock photo that can be purchased for anyone’s use…

fake proof

Final Verdict – Avoid

Obviously my final bit of advice is going to be to avoid this place. And if you did buy into it I would try to get your money back as soon as possible. Luckily this is being sold through ClickBank, which does have a 60 day moneyback return policy, which is the only good thing about this.

It is possible that you could potentially make some money with this “system”, but it would be an absolutely horrible path to take and you more than likely wouldn’t, which you are probably well aware of by now.

You can definitely make money with Amazon, but this course is not a good choice to train you on how to do that. You can take a look at the program I use to make a living online for something that I actually recommend and that I know works.

Affiliate Marketing Dude Review – Scam or Good Training? [Read Before Buying!]

Welcome to my Affiliate Marketing Dude review.

Affiliate Marketing Dude is an affiliate marketing training program created by Marcus Campbell. But how good is it really? Is it a possible scam or waste of time?

I’m sure we have both seen our fair share of “make money online” programs out there that simply do not work. I know I sure as heck have anyhow.

So doing a little extra research and finding out how good this program actually is was a good choice. And a very important one.

In this review I’ll be going over what exactly this program includes, what type of work you will have to do, how much money you can make, complaints, the cost and more.

What Is Affiliate Marketing Dude?

As mentioned, this training program is the creation of Marcus Campbell. He has been involved in affiliate marketing for quite some time and obviously knows what he is doing. But of course just because someone is making good money for themselves doesn’t mean that their training program/system is worth getting involved with, which is why I had to dig a little deeper and review this program further.

To summarize the whole thing up, the focus of this training is on getting people to set up small websites that make money, and helping you do so. Not only is video tutorial training provided, but you also get access to tools, plug-ins that he uses, niche ideas, live training and more.

Affiliate Marketing In a Nutshell:

Now I don’t know how much you know, so just in case you don’t know what affiliate marketing is I want to cover it briefly.

Affiliate marketing is a legitimate business model and a great way to make money online, in particular for beginners. With affiliate marketing you have no need for your own products or anything like that. You simply promote products online for other people and earn commissions when you help make them sales.

I’ve actually been involved with affiliate marketing since 2015 and make a living doing it, which is why I’d say I’m pretty well qualified to review this course, since I know the tricks of the trade.

My First Impression

To be honest, my first impression of Affiliate Marketing Dude was pretty bad. When I first came across it the website seemed a bit run down to me and it looked like a poorly constructed program.

I mean… Just look at the forum here. It looks like something you’d see from a website back in the early 2000s… And it definitely is not very lively…
Affiliate Marketing Dude forum

One thing that I’ve learned through my journey with affiliate marketing is that it is NOT all about the training. Being able to network with like-minded individuals and share ideas is a HUGE deal. And unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be very much interaction amongst members on this platform.

* It’s also worth mentioning that, besides the forum being completely dead for the most part, I didn’t see anyone enter the live chat.

Overall just not much activity.

Also, one thing that really stuck out to me was that there was a link to “Preorder Simple Sites 2017 Here”… ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Is there some sort of time traveling involved in this or is this link just really outdated? I’m writing this review in 2019 and this link was from prior to 2017…

forum

This type of thing really proves my point when I say that my first impression was this place seemed a bit run down and outdated.

Maybe Marcus needs to hire some more employees to keep the platform up-to-date, who knows…

What You Get

There is a good bit provided in this program. You get access to training, tools, get help setting things up, mentorship and more… But of course it depends on what you purchase. There are actually 3 different products (from what I’ve seen) and it will depend on what you buy, which I will go over more shortly.

The basics of it all revolve around 3 steps, although there is a lot more to it than just this. But these are the basics…

  1. Find a niche – The first step is to find a niche. A niche is a particular segment of the market that you would like to target. So if you really like basketball maybe you could create a website around the basketball equipment niche. Or if you really like cooking you could create a website around cooking recipes, and so on.
  2. Choose affiliate offers – Then the next step is to find affiliate offers. You have your website and you have a niche, now you need to find offers you can promote to make money. If your site is about basketball equipment you could easily find plenty of affiliate offers to promote all sorts of basketball equipment. And if your site is about cooking recipes, you could easily promote cooking recipe e-books and such, along with cookware if you wanted to. There are lots of possibilities and these are just 2 examples.
  3. Get traffic – And of course after getting everything set up and in place you are going to need traffic. Without anyone visiting your website you will not make any money. This, unfortunately, is probably the hardest part. But, there is plenty of traffic out there and lots of money to be made. The type of traffic you will be focusing on will vary a little depending on what your niche is. Some people may want to focus more on paid traffic while others may want to focus more on free traffic from social media and search engines.

The Cost

The 3 products that I came across are as follows. There might be more, maybe some smaller products, but I’m not completely sure.

  • $297 – Simple Sites Big Profits
    • This is the core training. You learn how Marcus builds his online businesses step by step and are also provided with tools that help do some of the hard work for you, which Marcus uses. If you buy into this you also get some support, access to sample profit sites that have been set up and more so that you know what to do and hopefully don’t get too lost.
    • This is what Marcus suggests as the main product for getting started. Pretty much you will need this product in order to go through the training, and the other 2 are “add-ons”.
  • $77/mo – Mentor Program
    • This mentor program is something you will have to pay for monthly if you want it. You will get access to video recordings, all the live training Marcus has done, all the plugins he uses for his sites, along with menorship from him of course.
    • You will also get access to private webinars that he only holds for people who join this program.
  • $997 – High Ticket Niches
    • If you buy into this Marcus will personally select a niche for you that he feels has a lot of potential. He will try to find you as profitable and noncompetitive of a niche as possible. You also get set up with a domain, along with some plugins for your site, tools, and some content to get started.
    • You also get access to Simple Sites Big Profits if you buy into this. This way you can follow along with the core training.

Other Costs

And of course you also have to remember that you may have to pay for traffic, which can be incredibly expensive and, if you don’t know what you are doing, a great way to lose a lot of money really fast.

There as an alternative program out there, which is what I used to get started back in 2015, that is free to start out with and I will go over that in a bit as well.

Who This Course Is For

First off, it is important to know that this WILL TAKE WORK. Don’t get the wrong impression when you hear Marcus saying that he will provide you with a website that is already set up with content if you buy into the $997 High Ticket Niches product. Even if you buy into this, you will be doing work, or else you will fail.

I believe he sets up your website (if you buy into this high ticket offer) with 4 pages of content. And I know from experience that this is absolutely nowhere near the amount of content you will need to start driving good traffic to your website, unless you are paying for traffic. Even if the content is 100% unique, it is just the very beginning of things.

YOU WILL BE WRITING! This is very important to know before getting started. If you are someone that absolutely hates writing (typing on a computer) then this probably is not for you.

As I mentioned earlier, this program is all about creating simple websites, what you could call a blog, writing content and promoting affiliate products around that content.

Example: If you decide to create a blog about dogs you could write a blog post about the best dog toys for small dogs and you could promote a bunch of different dog toys within that post. You see this sort of thing all the time online, even if you never noticed it.

Is There Much Profit Potential?

There is no question there is plenty of potential with affiliate marketing, however there is also a lot of people that fail. Results vary a ton and that is because there are so many variables at play here. The amount of money you make depends on many things, such as the competition in your chosen niche and the types of products you are promoting.

As I mentioned, I’ve been affiliate marketing since 2015 and have a good deal of experience with this business model. I have had websites that have made me less than $100 a year and I have even had websites have made me as much as over $6000 a month. There can be a huge difference.

Complaints

Lack of Support

From what I have seen there definitely seems to be a lack of support. I went over how inactive the forum was and the live chat. I’m sure you are able to get some support, but it does not seem very adequate.

And I pretty much guarantee you that you will run into trouble eventually. There are bound to be some things you get stuck on or have problems with.

Cold Forum

This goes along with what I just said. The forum is “cold”. There is not much activity and, although you can definitely get some help, I don’t see much value here.

Overpriced Products

It it is very difficult to put a price tag on digital products like this, but in my opinion the $997 product seems to be just too much for me, but of course this is just my opinion. I mean… That is a lot of money, but then again you are getting access to the “core” Simple Sites Big Profits product as well.

It would be nice to know the success rates of people who buy into this $997 product. This is the one where Marcus picks a niche for you that he feels has great potential. You would expect success rates to be high (although I’m guessing not), but I understand that there is pretty much no way of actually finding this out.

Paying for a Niche? Not a Good Idea

Also, a word of warning. I was reading another review and the person brought up a really good point. You might not want to buy into the High Ticket Niches product where he picks a niche for you. It might sound tempting, but I foresee problems.

The main problem is that he will be picking a niche for you, which you may have absolutely no interest in. And, as I already said, you will have to create content. I have seen it happen many times before… Someone gets involved in a niche that they think is profitable but that they have no interest in and they get burn-out and end up quitting.

If you are going to be writing a bunch of content about something, you better darn well at least have some interest in it.

Conclusion – Worth Joining?

Overall I don’t see any real reason to recommend this program. There are so many different affiliate marketing training courses out there, and this does not seem to be one of the better ones. I’m sure there are some great things you can learn from it, and I’m sure some people have been successful from it, but the quality you are getting here just doesn’t seem to be up to par and isn’t going to give you your best chances of success.

A Better Alternative

Back in 2015 I got started with a training program called Wealthy Affiliate, which was one of the best decisions of my life.

This place teaches the same sort of thing, creating your own small websites and making money via affiliate marketing, but the difference is that Wealthy Affiliate provides a heck of a lot more and for a lower price… AND they have a free membership where you can get access to beginner training at absolutely no cost, which is a great way to get started.

Wealthy Affiliate has more training, a very active community where you can network with many other like-minded affiliate marketers and learn tons of great things, they have much better support and more. Overall is just a lot better in pretty much every way.

CBD BioCare – Scam or Worth It? [Review]

CBD BioCare is one of many companies that make CBD oil products, which have become increasingly popular. However, is this place a scam?

This isn’t something that is out of the question. With the massive rise of CBD oil there have been new companies popping up all over the place, so it is hard to know which you can trust.

Whether you are looking into CBD BioCare just to buy some of their CBD oil products or if you are looking to join the business opportunity, it doesn’t matter… In this review I’ll be going over all you need to know.

CBD BioCare Review

CBD BioCare is a company that manufactures CBD oil products, which you obviously already know. The company is headquartered in Florida and was founded by Matthew and Stacey Pitts.

The story goes that Matthew visited an old high school friend who had cancer and found that cannabis was one of the only things that relieved his pain and suffering. This was before medical marijuana started becoming so popular and was, well you know, illegal. With an intense interest in helping others with the medicinal benefits of marijuana and with the rising popularity of the cannabis industry, CBD BioCare was born.

And no… CBD oil products will not get you high. They do not contain THC, the cannabinoid which is responsible for such. And yes… It they are completely legal, in all 50 states.

Some of the reasons why this particular brand of CBD oil is pretty good quality include that it is said to be…

  • Full spectrum CBD oil
  • Grown organically in the USA and manuctured in the USA
  • 3rd party tested

And then besides the products themselves, there is also a business opportunity here that I will go into more detail on soon.

The Products

Some of their top-selling products include things like…

  • CBD oil
  • Anti-aging collagen retinol cream infused with CBD oil
  • Pain cream that consists of Emu oil mixed with CBD oil

And as mentioned, these are all claim to be full-spectrum, made in the USA, and 3rd party tested to ensure the best quality.

Full Spectrum

What full-spectrum means is that it is full of all the terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, etc in hemp. However, it does not have any THC, which as I mentioned is the stuff that makes you high. So the term “full”-spectrum is a bit misleading.

The reason full-spectrum is looked at as a good thing is because you get benefits from more of what the cannabis plant has to offer.

However, this term “full-spectrum” is often misused and seems to have many different meanings. I’m not really so sure that the CBD oil products this company produces are full-spectrum as you would think.

Made in the USA

The hemp plants that this oil is harvested from are grown in the USA and all of the lab work is also done in the USA.

Why is this a good thing? Well… Because the USA is well known for having some pretty good regulations in place to keep companies like this honest and ethical. This helps to ensure that they aren’t engaging in any less than ethical business practices and that you aren’t getting ripped off in one way or another.

It is also worth mentioning that they state on their website that their products are manufactured in a FDA registered facility.

3rd Party Tested

Third party testing is always a big deal and this place does indeed have third-party testing conducted on their products. And, they even have the certificates of analysis available for public view on their website.

I took a look at these certificates and found that most of them have been conducted by Envio Labs and Encore Labs.

Now I’m no expert on lab results like this, but everything seems to check out. The analyses show that the CBD content is as they say it is and the products seem to be good quality.

The Business Opportunity

CBD BioCare also has a business opportunity that anyone can join to make money selling their products, as well as recruiting in other sales representatives. There have been lots of companies presenting opportunities like this lately, such as HempWorx for example.

In order to become a sales representative, you first have to choose a representative package. And no… You don’t have to take out your wallet and buy a bunch of products like a lot of companies force you to do. There is a free option where you can join without any cost. The 3 different options include the following…

  1. Free option gives you access to member’s dashboard, tracks visitors, sales, commissions, etc.
  2. $99 option gives you access to dashboard plus you get personalized landing pages, coupons you can give visitors and more.
  3. $199 option you get access to dashboard, coupons, and you get one some of the CBD oil products along with it all.

You will start out as a Sales Representative earning 20% commissions on your sales, but have the ability to move up the ranks and potentially earn 40%.

  • Sales Representative
    • You start out at this level and make 20% commissions on your sales
    • Once you reach $1000 in sales you get bumped up to a 25% commission rate
  • Sales Manager
    • Once you make a total of $5000 you move up to this rank and earn 30%
    • After making $15,000 you earn 35%
  • CBD CEO
    • You hit this rank once you reach $40k in sales and now you earn 40% commissions

compensation plan

Some of the good things about this compensation plan include that there are no fees, no minimums, no sales quotas, etc. All you have to do is sign up and choose a package, which could be free depending on which choice you decide. And of course the commissions are pretty good.

There does seem to be a bit of a MLM structure here however. I did see that they mention recruiting in reps beneath you, called “sub- reps”, but I don’t know exactly how this all works. There really isn’t all that much information on the compensation plan.

Summing It All Up

So CBD BioCare is a company that sells various different CBD products, all of which have been tested for quality assurance by third-party labs, and they also have a business opportunity that anyone can join.

All in all I don’t see any reason to call this place a scam. In fact, it seems that their products are actually pretty good based on what I see and what I have found out. Now they may be a bit overpriced, but as far as quality goes they are good.

I hope you enjoyed this honest review and found it at least somewhat helpful.

If you were looking into this to join the business opportunity, you may also be interested in taking a look at how I went from $0 to over $6000 a month working for myself online [learn more]. It has nothing to do with CBD oil or anything like that, but it may be something of interest since you are looking to make money on your own terms.

How I make a living online here

Is Kids Paid Money Legit? – Don’t Join! (Warning)

Is it true that you can make $500 today with Kids Paid Money? Is this actually a legitimate way to make money online or is this just another scam?

They claim that you can get paid to take surveys, watch videos and invite friends, however it is probably not how you think.

I joined this place recently just to investigate whether or not it was a scam and you will see why in this review I definitely do NOT recommend anyone join.

They make it seem like it is super easy to make tons of easy money, just by going around sharing your referral link on social media, but as I said… IT IS NOT LIKE IT SEEMS.

What Is Kids Paid Money?

When I first landed on the website sounded like a pretty typical paid survey type of site, like Swagbucks for example, yet I was suspicious because they claim you can make $500/day.

I am very familiar with paid survey sites and I know that making anywhere even close to $500 in a single day is out of the question. Paid survey sites often pay between $0.25 and $2 per survey, and what you factor in all the time being wasted getting disqualified from surveys and such, you end up making less than minimum wage.

So right off the bat I was thinking that this sounds a bit like a scam, or I guess I should say A LOT like a scam.

I mean $500 is a heck of a lot of money to make in a single day.

Also, what made this place seem even more “scammy” was the fact that there really wasn’t much to the website. It seemed kind of like some rundown website with not all that much information. And in the FAQ section they didn’t even mention anything about taking surveys or things like that. The only talked about referring others…

screenshot

So now, at this point my investigation, I’m thinking that this might just be some type of referral scheme, which it basically is as you will see. In a nutshell this opportunity is not legitimate. It is a misleading recruitment scheme where they scam people and make money off of them.

The Signup Process [Redirected to Another Site]

So on the Kids Paid Money website I clicked on the “sign up” button in the top menu as you can see below, but what happened next was unexpected.

screenshot

So I was expecting to go to some sign up page for Kids Paid Money, but instead I was directed to a different website called Kids Earn Cash, which pretty much looks like the exact same opportunity except for the name is different.

This got me wondering… Why would they change their name?

I have come across quite a few scams in the past and one thing I know is that scams often change their names because, once they are labeled scams, it is a hard label to get rid of. So they just change their names and rebrand themselves as some new opportunity, when really they are just some re-hashed old scam.

But I wasn’t exactly sure whether or not it was such, it just made me more suspicious.

Kids Earn Cash

After entering my name, email and creating a password on this new Kids Earn Cash website, I had access to the dashboard where I would supposedly be able to make money…

Making Money

kids earn cash dashboard

So above you can see the inside of the members area, a.k.a. the dashboard. There really isn’t much to it. As you can see the first thing that pops up in front of you is your referral link and some statistics about your earnings, clicks, referrals, etc.

Below that there is a menu and I did see an option to take “$30 surveys”.

And again, this is something I was very suspicious of. As I just mentioned above, most paid survey sites only pay between $0.25 to $2 per survey. Getting paid $30 and one survey, that is a heck of a lot.

But I decided to click on it and check it out…

screenshot

Most of these opportunities are to earn gift cards. I decided to try to get the $100 McDonald’s gift card and see what happeneds.

At first they made it seem really easy. It seemed like I was just going to have to take one survey and I would end up with this $100 McDonald’s gift card, which I should’ve known was a lie because it seemed way too good to be true.

One survey turned into two surveys, and then that turned into 2 surveys plus being forced to join some free trial offer…

screenshot

So anyways… It seemed like some endless loop where I just kept getting pushed into taking more surveys and completing more offers. It didn’t seem like I would ever get to the point where I would actually be able to claim a $100 gift card… So I gave up.

Ca you actually earn these high-priced gift cards? Who knows… But I have a good idea it is probably darn near impossible.

Definitely Not a Good Way to Make Money

Overall this website is very scammy. They lead you to believe that you are going to be able to make super easy money, up to $500 in the first day, but this is far from being true.

Instead you just run around in circles chasing your tail trying to claim gift cards that never come. And during this whole process you end up being forced to share a bunch of personal information which is going to ultimately of end up with you getting tons of spam emails in your inbox among other things.

Can You Make Any Money With This?

But of course the “main” way to make money is by sharing your link and referring others to join.

Can you actually make money by sharing your link like this?

This is another question that I did not have a concrete answer for. HOWEVER, I certainly do not trust this place and if you were to refer people I don’t know if you would actually be able to get paid.

I have come across many other opportunities like this that scam people and do not pay members as they should.

Another Problem

Another problem is that… Even if they do pay… How are you going to make money?

They make it seem so simple to share your link on social media, but the reality is that it will be much more difficult than it seems. And they provide absolutely no training whatsoever.

I have been involved in online marketing since 2015 and I can almost guarantee you that you will make little to no money sharing a link for an opportunity like this on social media. Most people don’t have massive social media followings and this means they don’t have much potential to begin with. And without proper training on how to market something like this it just isn’t going to work out well.

$500 in a Day? Not a Chance!

If you do end up signing up for this place then you have pretty much been scamed. You are suckered into thinking that you can make $500 in a single day from this opportunity when I don’t think there has been anyone to ever do this.

So don’t go out and scam other people.

Don’t promote this crappy opportunity just to try to make money… Which they might not even pay you in the end anyhow.

The bottom line is that this place is NOT legitimate and that it is NOT a good way to make money.

Why Not Earn Money a Legitimate Way?

What I would suggest is what is called affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is great for beginners and is actually how I got my start online in 2015. It is when you promote products online and earn commissions when you help make sales.

You promote products via affiliate links, which are basically referral links, but the difference between legitimate affiliate marketing and this Kids Paid Money scam is that with legitimate affiliate marketing you promote legitimate products.

If interested I would highly recommend reading my guide on how I make over $6,000 a month online doing this and the best way to get started.

Survey Queen – Scam or Legit? [I’d Avoid This Place!]

Survey Queen claims that you can make $100 “sharing your opinion”, but unfortunately this place is not what you think. Is it a scam? No, I wouldn’t call it that, however, this is not a place I’m going to be recommending to my readers and for good reason.

In this review I’ll be going over what exactly Survey Queen it is, what they have to offer, how it all works, why don’t recommend it and more.

Review

So when I first landed on the website I was thinking it was going to be your typical paid survey site. These types of sites are very common and I am very familiar with such. Basically how it works is that they host their own online surveys along with third-party online surveys and you get paid for taking them, usually anywhere from $0.25 to $2 a survey.

Market research is a big deal these days. Companies want to know as much as possible about consumers and through paid surveys is how they get a lot of this information. So this is how you make money from them in the first place, the companies pay the survey sites and the survey sites pay you as a small incentive to take the surveys.

But Survey Queen is NOT your typical paid survey site.

I first got a hint that this was the case after scrolling down a bit on the homepage and seeing a bunch of other sites being promoted. You can see in the screenshot below that for some reason they are promoting Best Day Ever, Survey AllStars, and Inbox Pays.screenshotI thought I was going to take surveys and make money… Not join other survey sites?? And besides, Best Day Ever isn’t even a survey site. It is a sweepstakes site.

All Surveys

But anyways, I saw in the top menu there is a link for “all surveys” so I decided to click it and see what they have to offer…

screenshot

Unfortunately it was the same sort of deal. They just provided me a list with a bunch of other paid survey sites along with some sweepstakes sites and others mixed. The list they gave me included…

  • SurveyAllStars
  • Green Panthera
  • Survey Club
  • Survey Rewards
  • Inbox Pays
  • I Love Samples
  • Opinion Outpost
  • Global Test Market
  • Product Testing US
  • VIP Voice

Community

There was also a link on the top menu for “community”. I checked this out and it was just to some Facebook page that was not up-to-date and I saw no point in joining.

Basically it is a Facebook page (which isn’t even called Survey Queen) that promotes paid survey sites, just like they are doing on the website here.

Subscribe

The the only other link at the top menu was to “subscribe”, so I decided to check it out. Here is where they said I could “make $100+ sharing your opinion”.

Of course this is not necessarily a good thing. Making $100 or more sounds great, but what if it takes you 500 hours to make that $100 or more? That would be pretty horrible right?

But anyways… I decided to enter my information on the page you can see below and see what they have to offer…join page

One thing that I want to point out is that after I entered my name and email address, up popped a bunch of promotions. There were promotions for newsletters, email alerts, job alerts, health insurance and more…

screenshot

And below the “join now” button there was small print that says you agree to receive emails from Survey Queen and “its partners”…. But more on this in a second.

After clicking to Join Now I was then redirected to the page you can see here, which says that I start making money in 3 easy steps…

screenshot

And guess what? That’s it!

That is all this place has to offer. On the page you can see pictured above there was nowhere to go any further. This was the end of the line. They presented me with a list of paid survey sites, for like the 4th time, and I could either join them or leave.

There was no step number 2 or anything like that.

What Is Survey Queen Really?

This place isn’t much, I’ll tell you that.

The only thing this place does is refers you to a bunch of other paid survey sites and similar sites, like sweepstakes sites, product testing sites, etc. Along with that they also try to get you to take up offers that are completely unrelated, such as getting life insurance (which was promoted when I first entered my information to join).

What’s the point?

You may be wondering what is the point of all of this, and it is pretty simple… They make money off of you. Every person that they get to join one of these other paid survey sites or sign up for an offer, they make money off of.

This is not the paid survey site that I was expecting at all.

There is absolutely no value here and no point I see in joining this place. For some reason I have been coming across a lot of really crappy sites like this lately. In fact, I just reviewed a place called Survey Monster recently that was the same type of deal. And I’ve come across others, like My Survey Jobs, in the more distant past.

These places just sucker people in just for the purpose of making as much money off them as possible.

Final Verdict – Avoid

There is absolutely no reason I see for anyone to join this website, unless of course you want to get a bunch of spam emails in your inbox. This is the only thing that is going to come from it if you do join, because remember, you have to agree to receive emails from their “partner” sites, and we have no idea what all this includes.

If you do actually want to make money taking paid surveys online, then I would suggest trying a well-known and trusted survey site like Swagbucks. They have been around a while and offer a variety of easy ways to earn some money.

That said, you should know that paid survey sites like this pay out very little. They are best for earning a bit of extra pocket change in your spare time, but not much more than that. If you want to actually make good money in your spare time online, I would highly suggest taking a look at how I went from $0 to over $6000 a month working online for myself.

Beware of the Paid for Research Scam – PaidforResearch.com [Avoid!]

Paid for Research claims that you can earn up to $100, you can complete cool surveys, save money and collect freebies, but unfortunately it’s claims are very misleading.

I know it can be tempting. I mean who doesn’t want to earn $100?

But I’m warning you that this place is pretty much a scam in my opinion. You do not want to join this website. And believe me, you will see why in this review.

Besides, earning up to $100 is necessarily a good thing. Just think about it… If it takes 100 hours to earn $100, that would be only one dollar an hour you are making, which would be horrible.

But anyways… You are not going to make $100 at this place and you will see why.

What Is Paid for Research?

In a nutshell, Paid for Research (paidforresearch.com) is a very scammy website that acts as if they are some sort of paid survey site, where you can make money taking surveys online, but really they just make money off of people by selling them on a bunch of scammy promotions, which is similar to Survey Monster and My Survey Jobs (avoid these places too!).

Right off the bat, when I first came to the site, things didn’t seem right. There are a bunch of red flags that I noticed that acted as warning signs, telling me to stay away.

Red Flags

First off, the website looks like an absolute dump. It is not very professional looking by any means and this was concerning at a first glance.

Also, I noticed that there are a lot of spelling errors on the website. Spelling errors all over the place, such as these on the FAQ page…spelling errors

And what is weird is that this site is supposedly only available for residents of the US, yet the creators seem to be from some foreign country. Well… maybe it isn’t that weird.

How It Works

What they lead you to believe is that you will be able to sign up, participate in online surveys and earn rewards such as cash or freebies…

how it worksSounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it?

And it would be awesome IF IT WERE ACTUALLY TRUE… Which it is NOT!

My [bad] Experience Here

So after the initial registration where I entered my name, email and some other personal information, I was then provided with this survey…

screenshot

As you can see this “survey” wasn’t too much of a survey really and was basically just pushing me to join other paid survey websites, sign up for personal loans, get prepaid credit cards and so on. In fact, there was even a question that asked if I wanted to become a substance abuse counselor.

Are you joking?

And guess what? That was only page 1 out of 10 pages of this “survey”.

Page 2 was the same sort of deal… A bunch of very scammy promotions about every and anything…

screenshot

There were 10 pages of this crap and I noticed that many of the questions got asked on multiple pages, just they might have been worded differently or something like that.

I saw just about every type of promotion possible. All sorts of things including…

  • Political promotions
  • Biz opps
  • Free trials
  • Supplements
  • Loans
  • Life insurance
  • Carpeting/flooring
  • Grilling equipment
  • Sleeping problems
  • And so much more

And BEWARE OF THE SCAMS!

I noticed that there were quite a few scams being promoted in this “survey”, usually ones that present some sort of business opportunity such as that pictured below…

screenshot

I sign up for this website thinking that I am going to be able to take surveys and make money doing so, and then move on only to be bombarded with probably well over 100 different scammy promotions.

What a joke…

But it’s not over yet… The worst is still yet to come…

After finally going through the 10 pages of ridiculous “questions”, most of them not really questions at all, I finally made it to the end and I was told that there was a “special offer” waiting for me where I could “make an extra $450+ taking paid surveys”.

Of course at this point I no longer trusted anything this place told me, but I was already done with the survey site decided to click the submit button and see what they had in store for me…

screenshot

Did I make an extra $450 with this special offer?!!

Did I strike it rich?!

Was this the opportunity I had been waiting for all along??

NOPE… It was just another scam. I should’ve known better.

Well… Actually can’t be 100% positive that it was a scam because I never even got to see the darn thing. When I clicked on the submit button up popped a new webpage but unfortunately my browser blocked it, along with my antivirus software because… Well… You can see for yourself…

scam site

Nothing But a Waste of Time

So after wasting about 10 minutes of my precious time (it only took me about 10 minutes because I flew through those survey questions and just answered NO to just about everything) I ended up with nothing to show for it. Just a lot of frustration.

All this website does is promotes a bunch of crap to make money off of people who sign up, and as much money as possible. I’m also willing to bet that I will be receiving tons of spam emails since I gave them my email address upon registration. Luckily I gave them an email address that I don’t really care about.

You can make money with paid surveys online, but not from Paid for Research

In the ridiculously long “survey” that I took, there were lots of promotions for legitimate survey sites. If I wanted to, I could have signed up for the sites and could potentially make some money taking surveys online. HOWEVER, I certainly do not want Paid for Research to get credit for referring me and besides that, taking paid surveys are largely a waste of time.

You usually make much less than minimum wage after you factor in all of the time wasted on getting disqualified, etc, and of course they just don’t pay much to begin with.

Final Verdict – Avoid at All Costs

There is absolutely no reason I see for anyone to join Paid for Research. The only thing that will happen is you will waste your time and you might even get a virus or 2 on your computer if you’re lucky.

If you do want to take paid surveys online and make a bit of extra money then I would suggest reputable paid survey sites like Swagbucks. Although, like I just said, don’t expect to make much money. These opportunities are best to make a little bit of extra pocket change in your spare time.

If you are looking for a way to actually make good money online, I would highly suggest taking a look at this guide I put together that shows you exactly how I make a living working online and how others like yourself can get started.

Spring Profits – Scam by “Daniel Green”? [Read Before Buying!]

Can you really make money with the Spring Profits system? Or is this just another scam?

Daniel Green, the guy who supposedly created this system, claims that “I made $3,912,383.11 selling t-shirts from the comfort of my own home”.

Over $3 million?? That is a heck of a lot. And if it is true that is pretty incredible.

But is it really true?

After all, it’s not like I haven’t come across similar looking systems that have turned out to be scams many times in the past. Right off the bat I was suspicious of this place. It just sounds a little bit too good to be true. And you know what they say about things that sound too good to be true… They probably aren’t true.

Red Flag #1 – My Link Has Been Activated

In the video presentation one of the first things you are told is that “your link has been activated”.

But what link? What are they talking about?

This might get you excited but I have heard similar sorts of claims many times before, from programs that were scams and that I exposed, such as Copy My Cash Code and Money Sucking Websites. Usually they will say something like “we are setting up your account now”, “we are activating your money making system”, or something along those lines.

screenshot

Red Flag #2 – I’m Lucky

They also tell you that you are “one of just a few lucky individuals who will ever hear this message”.

However, I know for fact that this is a big fat lie. There are tons of other people who have been hearing this message because there are tons of people promoting this system like crazy.

You probably ended up coming across the system after getting some email about some new awesome way to make money online. And believe me, there are thousands of other people who have gotten that same email.

There certainly are NOT just “a few” people to hear this message.

Red Flag #3 – Tons of Easy Money

You are also told that “average Joes have been making in excess of $25,00 every single week”.

And of course it only requires 10 minutes of work per day.

Now if that doesn’t sound too good to be true then I don’t know what does. I’ve learned a thing or 2 over the years and one thing I have learned is that when something sounds too good to be true, especially when it comes to “make money online” programs, it is probably a scam.

You also probably noticed that the guy offered absolutely no proof of this being true.

Red Flag #4 – Fake Testimonials

Remember the videos that were shown in the presentation… The ones from people claiming to have been using the system and making tons of money with it?

You know… Like this guy picture below…

testimonial

Ya… Well unfortunately they are all completely fake. The people shown in these videos are actually paid actors. After doing a little digging around I was able to find this guy’s profile on the freelance marketplace website called Fiverr. As you can see anyone can pay him to make a spokesperson video…

fiverr profile

Red Flag #5 – “Daniel Green”… Who Is This Guy?

Another major red flag is that we have no idea who this Daniel Green guy even is. He brags about how much money he is making with this system, but of course he offers absolutely no proof of any of it being true. This information could easily be made up, and I’m guessing that it probably is.

And why does he never show his face? Why doesn’t he provide any verifiable information? If this really is the amazing system that he claims it is, you would think you’d be more than happy to stand behind it and show himself.

The fact that the creator remains hidden for the most part, other than the fact that he says his name is “Daniel Green”, is a major red flag and a common characteristic of a scam.

Many Red Flags…

So there are a lot of red flags, and this definitely seems really scammy, but does it have any value? What exactly is Spring Profits and can you make any money at all?

The truth is that this place is not a complete scam, and yes it is possible to make some money, although I definitely do not recommend it.

What Is Spring Profits?

In a nutshell, Spring Profits is a training course that teaches people how to make money selling T-shirts online through a website called Teespring.

Teespring is a website where people can design their own merchandise, such as t-shirts, phone cases, mugs, etc. and sell them online. This is an easy way to go about it because you don’t actually need to get involved in the manufacturing process, you just make your design and they handle the rest.

From what I understand, this place doesn’t require any upfront payment and they manufacture your designed products as you sell.

This is a completely legitimate way to make money online and, although “Daniel Green” may be completely fake name and he may have not made any money doing this, I do know for a fact that there are people making some good money selling T-shirts this way.

That said, it is a heck of a lot more difficult than this guy makes it seem.

It Is NOT Easy, Nor Is It Free

In the video presentation the guy makes it seem like this is the greatest opportunity to ever bless this earth, and he makes it sound super easy, but it is not.

Can you really only spend 10 minutes a day in the make millions doing this? Well I guess it might be possible, but I sure as heck would not count on it. That would be like counting on winning the lottery jackpot, chances are incredibly low.

You have to have the right design and market it to the right audience…. which is easier said than done.

You also should know that this WILL cost money…. Upfront.

He only tells you all the things that you want to hear, and of course no one wants to hear about the money they’re going to have to spend, so he just doesn’t tell you this part.

When it comes to selling T-shirts there is a lot of competition. You are not going to be the only one and this makes it a lot more difficult. In order to make sales you will have to drive traffic to your products, and paying for advertising is not easy nor is a cheap. Sure, if you get everything right it can potentially be very profitable, but you can also blow your money like crazy doing this.

What You Get If You Buy In

Well… The front end product is only $37 so I wouldn’t expect to get much.

This seems to me like another very over-hyped product that probably is going to be a disappointment. That is usually how it goes for products that are promoted like they are the greatest things ever… They turn out to be massively disappointing.

I don’t know how good the training actually is, but based on my experience online I would not expect much. They probably provide some pretty basic training that will show you how to get everything set up and what you have to do, but that’s probably about it.

Recommended? Absolutely Not

It seemed like a scam when I first landed on the video presentation and after reviewing it more it still seems like a scam, for the most part anyhow.

It sounds too good to be true, we have no idea who this “Daniel Green” character is, there is absolutely no proof of the money he claims to have made, the testimonials shown are fake, and so on.

This definitely does not sound like something I would buy into and I am not going to be recommending it to my readers.

If you want a legitimate way to make good money online, I would highly suggest taking a look at how I went from $0 to over $6000 a month online working for myself.

Is Survey Monster Legitimate? – It’s Not What You Think!

Is Survey Monster Legitimate

Survey Monster is not the survey site that it claims to be, and I’ll show you why in this review.

Is Survey Monster legitimate? The answer is both yes and no, but mostly NO. It is not like this site is doing anything illegal, but it is very “scammy” and I would definitely not recommend anyone to join.

I know, I know… It is promoted as a great way to earn some extra cash in your spare time, which sounds awesome, but this place is just going to be a waste of time.

Also, they claim that “unlike other paid survey sites” they are free to join. What the heck are they talking about here? Just about every paid survey site out there is free to join as well. This is nothing special by any means.

*Before I dive into this review I want to make it clear that I am reviewing the Survey Monster site located at SurveyMonster.net. There is also a SurveyMonster.com website but this is for people looking to create surveys, not take them and make money online.

What Is Survey Monster?

Well… At first glance it appears to be pretty much a typical paid survey site, in which you would take surveys provided by them and research companies that they work with, and make money from them. It does look a little run down, but not too bad I guess. HOWEVER, as I said it is not as it seems.

Basically what Survey Monster really is, is a “scammy” website that lures people into joining a bunch of other survey sites just so that they can make money off of you.

Don’t worry, you will see what I mean in a bit.

When I first came across this site I decided to register and give it a try just to see what it was all about. They had testimonials displayed (like that pictured below) which make it sound pretty awesome…

testimonial

Also, you can see above that they are telling me to hurry up and register so that I get an “extra bonus”. So I decided to give it a try.

How It Works

Sounds pretty simple… Just create your account, register for surveys and get paid…how it worksBut, of course, as you can imagine, it probably isn’t quite what you would think at first.

My Experience (Not Good)

So after entering my personal information to join, which included things like my name, date of birth, ZIP Code, gender, email, etc., it then was asking me to join a bunch of other paid survey sites.

You can see in the screenshot I took below. It was asking me to join popular survey sites like Toluna and Global Test Market, which I am very familiar with. HOWEVER, just because I am familiar with the sites doesn’t mean that I want to join them.

screenshotThis was the first of several red flags that popped out at me and seemed very “scammy”.

Why would this place be asking me to join other paid survey sites? I thought I was joining Survey Monster to take surveys and make money online…?

Then after submitting my information I was then taken to a page that told me I could “earn up to $150 or more per hour” and that “on average you make around $20 per survey, which takes 10 -12 minutes”.

Are you serious?

Are you freaking kidding me?

I can potentially make $150 or more per hour and on average make $20 per survey?? That sounds incredible… But unfortunately it also sounds a lot like a scam.

screenshot

Below that they had a list of their “top paid surveys” that I could sign up for.

But is not what I was expecting when I first came across this website. It is not like I could click on surveys, take them and make money. Instead, it just provided me with a big list of other paid survey sites that I could join.

Sites like…

…that I am very familiar with and have reviewed in the past.

survey list

THE PROBLEM:

The problem is that there is absolutely NO way you were ever going to make close to $20 per survey on average or $150 per hour. This is a ridiculous claim that has absolutely no truth to it.

These websites that it is recommending that you sign up for are your pretty typical paid survey sites. Generally speaking you WILL NOT MAKE MUCH!

You can expect to make 1 to $2 per survey that you take and once you factor in all the time that you waste getting disqualified from surveys and things like that, you are pretty much guaranteed to make much less than minimum wage.

Doesn’t Seem Very Legitimate to Me!

So is Survey Monster legitimate?

I think you can see the answer now. I mean, I guess they aren’t doing anything illegal, but what they are doing is definitely scammy.

They are lying to people just to get them to sign up for other paid survey sites.

Maybe it is illegal… I don’t know.

The point is that there is no way that you are going to make $20 per survey on average and they know this darn well. The reason they say that is because they want to make it sound like the greatest opportunity ever to get as many people to join as possible.

The Reason They Lie to You

The reason they are lying and trying to get people to join these other paid survey sites is simple… They make money from it!

Yes, you can actually make money by getting other people to join paid survey sites. If you have ever been a part of survey sites in the past, you probably already know this. They all have referral programs, and although you won’t make much, by referring massive amounts of people the money adds up.

This is the same thing that other sites like My Survey Jobs does, which is another scam I exposed here on my site.

Conclusion – Avoid

There are a heck of a lot of paid survey sites out there, many of them legitimate and many of them scams. While I wouldn’t call this a complete scam, I would definitely say that it does lean towards the more scammy side of things. And for this reason I am not going to be recommending any of my readers join it.

There are a lot better paid survey sites out there. If you want a personal recommendation from me, I would suggest Swagbucks. Swagbucks has been around for a while and is well trusted.

That said, one thing you have to realize about any paid survey site is that you are not going to make much money. This sort of opportunity is best for people looking to make just a little bit of pocket change in their spare time. If you want to make good money online then I would recommend reading this guide I put together that explains how I do so, and how you can do.

Bank Ramp Review – Scam by Jamie Lewis or $200 a Day?

Bank Ramp is a new training program by Jamie Lewis that you can supposedly make an easy $200 a day with or more. But… Is it really? Or is this possibly just another online scam that is going to be a ripoff?

I’m guessing you probably came across the somewhat ridiculous video presentation for this new program. You know, the one pictured below titled “how does making an extra $200 a day forever sound?”…

Bank Ramp Video

The reason I’m guessing you came across this video is because it is definitely over-hyped and just makes it all seem a little bit too good to be true.

And as we all know, if something sounds too good to be true then it probably is. This statement is particularly true when it comes to “make money online” programs/systems because there are a heck of a lot of scams out there when it comes to these sorts of things.

The Promo Video…

In the video Jamie Lewis is driving around in a sports car talking about how great his new program is. He claims that you can convert one dollar into $8 every couple minutes and that this is one of the latest “Internet hacks” he is revealing to his students.

At one point he is showing all the income he is making on his phone and seems to take both hands off of the steering wheel. I just thought it was strange because you could still see that the car was moving by looking out the window yet he had both hands on his phone. Maybe the camera guy was steering or something?? Who knows.

But anyways, that doesn’t matter too much.

Jamie, who is famous for really throwing over-the-top sales pitches at you, describes his new system like this: “we’re talking just 15 minutes to set up, active, and then BOOOM… results”.

Really…? It just takes 15 minutes to set up and then BOOOOMMMM… Just like that?

Sounds pretty simple.

He even makes it sound more simple when he says that it requires almost no learning and that it is “almost comedic” how simple it is. And that “by the end of this video you are going to be selling like your account is a machine gun”. LOL.

But of course things aren’t always as they sound and this is definitely not going to be as easy as you are led to believe, as you will now see in my review…

Bank Ramp Review

  • Creator: Jamie Lewis
  • Product Type: Ecommerce training
  • Price: $37 + upsells
  • Recommended?: No, and you’ll see why

As you already know, Bank Ramp is the creation of Jamie Lewis, which he describes as the simplest and most direct method for anyone to make an income online.

However, as I just mentioned above Jamie is famous for over-hyping products and making them sound a lot better than they really are.

He’s always pumping out new products and it seems that he is much more focused on pumping them out fast and making himself as much money as possible rather than really delivering good quality programs. Some other products of his I recently reviewed include Wealthy Agency and Profit Injector.

This program in particular is focused on drop shipping.

What is Dropshipping?

Dropshipping is when you sell physical products online via e-commerce but never actually have to deal with inventory or anything like that. Basically what you do is set up an online store and load it up with products. Then you send traffic to your store and when someone purchases products and pays you, you then purchase the product directly from the manufacturer and have it sent directly to the customer.

It may sound a bit complicated but it is actually a decent online business model that I have had experience with in the past, as I will go over in a little bit.

But again, it definitely isn’t as easy as Jamie makes it seem.

What You Get When You Buy In

The core of this program consists of video tutorials that cover the basics of dropshipping and get into more detail on different types of drop shipping, advertising, etc.

Things covered in the tutorials include the basics, Shopify, eBay, advertising on Instagram, etc.

Some of the training videos are made by a guy named Matt. I’m not completely sure who this guy is but he claims to have been making a ton of money dropshipping and it does seem he knows what he is doing.

In addition to the training you also get access to suppliers and resources, which really isn’t much because finding dropshipping suppliers is super easy in the first place.

The Garage Sale Finder

I want to specifically talk about this feature because I find it really strange. Yes, when you buy into the system get access to a garage sale finder which will locate local garage sales in your area.

The idea is that you can find items which you can then resell online at a higher price, making a profit.

But why the heck would they include this in a program like Bank Ramp? Reselling items from garage sales is an entirely different ballgame. It’s a hit or miss type of business and definitely something you cannot just run on autopilot, as Jamie describes in the sales video.

The Cost + Upsells

The upfront cost is only $37, which is an anything bad. However, there are upsells that you will be pushed into as well.

The first upsell is for $194 and it is where they will provide you with done-for-you campaigns. Then there is another $174 upsell for additional training.

And you cannot forget about advertising costs. With dropshipping you’re going to have to drive traffic to your products. The way to go about this is with paid advertising, which is an easy way to blow through a heck of a lot of money really fast if you don’t know what you are doing… And I’m not so sure that this program is a good place to learn.

The Promo Video Is Misleading

Not nearly as easy as they lead you to believe it is

As you know, making money like this is not nearly as easy as they make it seem.

You don’t just set up a system in 15 minutes and then “BOOM” you are making money. That is a load of crap.

You have to find the right products, you have to do research into the audience that is interested in whatever type of products you chose and you have to organize campaigns and advertisements that target that audience.

It is not a walk in the park and a heck of a lot of people fail at this type of thing, I know from experience.

I was involved in dropshipping for a few years and got into it after buying a course for over $2000. It was a much more in-depth course than this BankRamp program provides and even with that I didn’t do all that well. At one point I was making over $100 a day in profit but that did not last long and eventually I gave up, probably having lost a lot more money than I ended up making throughout the course of the couple years I was doing it.

And… If you think you are just going to be able to advertise and rake in the money on your first try, think again. You are likely going to have to go through a bit of trial and error beforehand, which means you’re going to need some money you can blow through upfront.

Remember, you have to pay for the products

Something else that I saw was really misleading in the video presentation was the income screenshots they were showing. Jamie and Matt (the guy in the car with him) were showing all the money that people were making. However, with this business model you have to remember that you aren’t keeping all of the money that comes to you, because of course you have to purchase the products.

The customer pays you and then you purchased directly from the manufacturer. That is how it works.

Conclusion – Scam or Not?

I’m not going to call it a scam but I think we all know that it isn’t as good as it seems.

Just as I was expecting early on when I saw that it was a product by Jamie Lewis, I was guessing that it was going to be a letdown. As already mentioned, this guy pumps out the products like crazy and they usually aren’t anything all that special. Sure, some people may make some good money from the training they provide, but most people probably aren’t going to.

Personally I wouldn’t buy this program and I am not going to be recommending it to my readers.

Also, although dropshipping is a legitimate business model where a lot of money can be made, if you are thinking about getting involved in this you need to be aware of the risks. You are not going to hit the nail on the head the first time. That is highly unlikely. You’re probably going to have to blow through a bit of cash in advertising before you find something that works, if at all.

I’m just trying to give you realistic expectations here.

If you are a beginner looking to make money online and want to get involved in something that is less risky, then I suggest affiliate marketing. It is less complicated and doesn’t require near the cost. You can read my guide here that I put together which goes over exactly how I make a living doing this and how others can get started doing the same.

Will Insider Profit Groups Scam You? – EXPOSED In This Review

Insider Profit Groups is promoted as being one heck of a good opportunity to make money online, but is it really? Or will Insider Profit Groups scam you like the many other similar scams out there?

I’m guessing you probably came across some email in your inbox talking about this great new money making method, it had a few links and you clicked on one that then led you to the video presentation for this opportunity. You probably thought it sounds a little bit too good to be true, so you decided to do some extra research into it, which then led you to my review here.

And it’s a good thing that you took the time to do more research, because this product is not what it seems to be.

Yes, it does present a real opportunity to make money online, and money definitely can be made, but is not nearly as easy as you are led to believe and might be a big disappointment.

A Typical Fear Mongering Promo

The spokesman in the video talks about how jobs are being slashed all ever, these are extremely hard times, and even how he used to be a baker but ended up losing his job, his home, and really struggling.

Then… Of course… He talks about how this is the “biggest opportunity the Internet has ever seen” and how you are going to be able to get in on it here today. This type of statement sounds a bit reminiscent of scams I’ve reviewed in the recent past, such as The Silk Road Effect and The Ecom Freedom Blueprint.

This it’s pretty typical fear mongering right here. Yes, these are “hard times” and a lot of jobs are being lost, but is Insider Profit Groups really the solution? Well of course that is what he wants you to believe because he is trying to sell it to you, but it probably isn’t.

But anyways… Enough talk about the misleading sales pitch he throws at you. Let’s get into the review…

Insider Profit Groups Review

  • Type: Make money online
  • Creator: Never reveals his name
  • Focus: Facebook marketing
  • Price: $9 + upsells
  • Recommended?: Not really

Insider Profit Groups is all about making money via Facebook groups. This is the new awesome opportunity that he is talking about. He claims that he has a Facebook group with over 20,000 members that is making him $1175 a day…

… But of course there is absolutely no way to prove what he is telling you is true.

And besides, this is definitely not some new opportunity that is just now being brought to light. People have been making money via Facebook groups for years.

How it works:

Facebook groups are private communities within Facebook that anyone can create for free. You could create a private group about cats, cool shoes, shooting bows, politics, stopping deforestation, and literally anything you want to.

Then, you will be able to monetize these groups by promoting relevant products to them. So for example if you have a group about cats, you can promote cat toys to the group via affiliate links.

You will be able to earn money through affiliate marketing. This is when you promote products, other people’s products, and earn commissions when you help make sales. It is a completely legitimate business model and actually one that I have years of experience in.

Sounds good… But don’t buy in just yet. You might not want to.

What You Get If You Buy

He talks a big talk, and acts like if you buy in your going to be able to make “$2563 a day” like he is, but the reality is much different.

What you are getting here is not some in-depth video tutorial course that is going to hold your hand through the entire process and really help you get things going.

Instead, you will be getting an e-book that outlines the process of how this all works and how you can do it. Yes, an e-book. This is why this product is being sold for only $9.

He calls this “the world’s first and only Facebook profit group blueprint for complete beginners”, but this is far from the truth. In fact, while this e-book does provide good information and lays it out for you in an easy-to-follow way, all this information can definitely be found for free online. And I’m sure many people reading this would rather watch a YouTube video explaining the process then read an e-book.

The Reality of This

This is promoted in a way that is definitely a bit misleading. The guy claims to have stumbled across some “special tool” that big companies in Silicon Valley are using to spy on different methods of making money online, which he then used to come across this method he is teaching in his e-book. He makes it sound as if you came across this method, and then BOOM… Now he’s making thousands of dollars every day.

But the reality is much different. This will certainly take time.

You can’t just go out and create a bunch of Facebook groups thinking that they are going to grow in immense following overnight. This takes a lot of time and effort.

First you have to provide value in your Facebook group. This is what will attract new members and keep them around. You can’t just expect a bunch of people to join your group and then promote product after product, milking them for every penny they have. This does not work out and if you do it you’ll just end up with a bunch of people leaving the group and absolutely no trust.

You have to be active within the group and become an authority figure that people trust. This means posting valuable content regularly, answering questions, commenting on things and so on.

He somewhat leads you to believe you’re going to be able to get group members with little to no effort and then be able to milk them like cattle, but this is far from the reality.

Conclusion – Scam or Not?

I wouldn’t call the product a scam, because it does provide some value and is only being sold for $9, which I think is fair, but I will definitely say that the marketing around this all is without a doubt misleading.

So people who buy into this thinking that they are going to be able to make money in no time are likely going to feel scammed by the whole thing. This guy gives you unrealistic expectations and because of that there’s going to be great disappointment.

But overall the method of which he is talking about for making money online is completely legitimate. There are definitely some downsides, such as the fact that you have no real control over your group and are completely reliant on Facebook, but it is something that money can be made with online.

I actually do affiliate marketing for a living, and have been since 2015. However, I did not do affiliate marketing on Facebook. Rather, I create my own websites which has a lot of perks to it, because of course you have full control over them. I think this method is a lot better because of that and if interested, you can read my guide I wrote here for information on how to do the same. My guide is free by the way.
