    Hi, John!

    I’ve got caught up before in these money making scams that you mention. They are not pretty at all because they take and give nothing back.

    I think there are far too many easy “quick money” systems around these days, and it really can put newbies off the whole idea of making money online when they get sucked in a number of times.

    Your video walkthrough is really cool and I love the fact that I can earn through affiliate marketing, especially by promoting Amazon products.

    For many people, even a few hundred bucks per month would make a great difference to their income. So this affiliate marketing path definitely seems worth it in the long run.

      I think most of us have got caught up in the scams Neil, but it’s sad when that causes people to give up, when there is so much upside to running an online business.

      Like you say, even an extra few hundred dollars can make a HUGE difference in a lot of people’s lives, and the great thing is that if you can earn that much, you can then scale that income!

      Definitely worth learning some new skills and working hard for a few years for sure!

      Thanks for your feedback πŸ™‚

  2. An interesting video and post John. Straight to the point. I agree with the fact that it is not that easy. The process once you know it can be simple s you stated, just not easy. It is a shame that so many are being led in the wrong direction. By that I mean the one that says it is fast, easy money and anyone can do it. Gosh if that were really true we would all be making a ton of money! I really appreciate that you don’t make false promises. Thank you.

      Thanks, Merry, these false promises of “easy money” and “push-button systems” are a real problem in our industry and give internet marketing a really bad name.
      It’s just unfortunate because there are so many people doing great things and changing people’s lives!
      Keep working hard and following the right formula and you can do some great things for so many people! πŸ™‚

    Great post! Yes, it’s sad when people fall into a scam and then label all online opportunities as scams. I appreciate your video and how you listed different things to watch out for because they are most likely scams.

    And then you went into how to actually make money online. You explained it in a very simple way. But, like you said, making money online might be simple but it’s not easy. I found this out pretty quick when I first got into online marketing. There’s a lot to learn, especially with marketing strategy.

    How long have you been an internet marketer?

    Thank you for this helpful information.

      Thanks Weston!

      Making money online does take time to be built into a success, and anyone in the business that is ethical WILL tell you that, where as the scammers always promote, “easy, quick money” and “systems” that take little time!

      Personally, I have been working online since 2013 and there is plenty more to learn, believe me, but it’s a great life!

      Best of luck πŸ™‚

    Absolutely LOVE the video. Makes a lot of sense and explains things easily! Thank you for sharing this πŸ™‚

    Only one question. Can this work for anything? I noticed there are many programs out there that are a more “premium” or membership driven site. Are those places scams? Is asking for a $500 retainer normal practise or should it be avoided like the plague?

    Thanks πŸ™‚

      Glad you liked it Chris!

      Membership sites are fine, it depends on the product whether it is a scam or not.

      Generally, if they are promising “get rich quick”, or “easy money” etc. Then I would definitely avoid them.

      I am not sure about the $500 retainer either, but it depends on the program as well.

      Proceed with caution…

  5. Awesome post, scams have really given a bad name to this kind of business that is the reason why so many people do not trust this line of work.

    But the good is that because of legit sites like yours many are letting their guards down and giving a go at trying for themselves. Thanks again for sharing and helping people to believe again.

  6. Hello John,
    And thank you for that post. Simple, direct, and too the point on the ups and downs of this money making quest on the internet.
    You sold it with video and not a lot of redundant wording. That’s refreshing.
    I wish I had at least half the money back on the garbage that I invested in by being fed pie in the sky results from these so called gurus who most likely photo shopped their pictures in front of private planes!
    Good work and keep it up.

    • admin

      Yeah, the flashy cars and private planes are a big red light to stay away from John.
      About the only guru that has used this well was Frank Kern.
      I watched a sales video from him once and he poked fun at himself for driving a flash car… it was quite funny actually… but generally, I would not bother for sure!
      Glad you liked my video anyway πŸ™‚
