Prolific Academic Review – Get Paid To Take Surveys For Academic Research!

 

In my search to find genuine and legitimate ways to make money online I came across a site that has a unique way for allowing you to earn money through taking surveys. It definitely differs from other survey sites I’ve used in the past, and as you continue to read my Prolific Academic Review you’ll find out why.

 

What Is Prolific Academic?


Prolific Academic is a site that allows you to participate in surveys and studies for academic research and is supported by Oxford University. Genuine researchers upload their studies onto the site in order to get the right participants…you…to be involved in their study. As a participant, you are rewarded for taking part.

 

How To Get Started?


It’s quite easy to get started with Prolific Academic. Once you’ve opened the site via the link above you click on  “Sign up as a participant” to create your account. You can also choose to sign up via Facebook.

sign up as a participant prolific academic

Sign Up As A Participant

 

When you’ve signed up, follow the instructions to set up your account. You’ll need to verify your account with your email address and phone number, and you can also verify using Facebook if you wish. (You get more information as you set things up).

In case you’re wondering, the phone number is only for verification purposes and since signing up I have not received any marketing texts from them at all. Furthermore, you’re asked to verify your account in order to build trust within their community.

Verify Your Account

 

Once you’ve verified your account you’ll be able to complete your profile by answering some short and simple pre-screening questions. By building your profile you’ll be given more eligible surveys. Furthermore, in order to receive payments, you’ll be able to add your Paypal email to your account.

 

What Makes Prolific Academic Different To Other Survey Sites?


Gives You Surveys You’re Actually Eligible For

Unfortunately, with most survey sites, you get started with the survey only to find out minutes later that you don’t actually qualify. Well, Prolific Academic will give you surveys that you are eligible for, and in my experience, I’ve never been stopped from completing a survey due to ineligibility.

They’re Involved In Scientific and Academic Research

With Prolific Academic, you get to be involved in scientific and academic research. As someone who studied a science-based course at University, I do find it quite exciting and inspiring to be a part of someone else’s research in this way, and then to get a rewarded for it. I’ve personally found the surveys to be more interesting than surveys you get from most other paid survey sites.

You Can Earn Money For Yourself and/or For Charity

This is definitely something that makes Prolific Academic unique in my opinion. You can choose to donate the money you earn to charities online. You could be doing good for your community as well as helping a fellow academic in their research.

You Won’t Get Away With Not Paying Attention

The surveys and studies here are by genuine university students and researchers, so you need to pay attention to your responses and make sure you’re giving as accurate information as you can in order to get rewarded for your time. Luckily the surveys are quite interesting and so it’s not too difficult to stay engaged in the study.

You Can Know Your Eligibility For A Survey Before Taking It

In the “Studies” section you’ll be able to see what surveys are available and what surveys you are eligible for. You get to see if you qualify for a survey even before you start it. This means you don’t waste time filling out long-winded pre-screening surveys that lock you out halfway through because you didn’t qualify.

You Get Additional Information About The Survey/Study

You get information about what you will earn for completing the survey, as well as what that is equal to at an hourly rate. You can further see how long the survey will take, and the timeframe the researcher is willing to give you to complete the study. (see screenshot below)

Pros


The Studies Are Created By Researchers With A Student Email

This shows that the studies are created by real students who are looking for genuine participants for their research. This personally made me feel more comfortable getting involved with the site.

Studies Have An Estimated Time of Completion

One of the things I like about Prolific Academic is that they provide an estimated time of how long it’ll take to complete the survey. Many times you’ll be able to complete it sooner, but at least you can see how long it might take.

Low Payment Threshold

You only need to reach £5 before you can cash out which is quite low and you can make that quite quickly. One thing to note is that there is a payment fee taken when you cash out anything less than £20, so I’d personally recommend you wait until you’ve reached £20 to avoid any PayPal fees.

Pays via Paypal

I’m a big fan of any program that pays via PayPal, so it’s another reason why I like this site. (Update: Payments cashed out via Paypal include a 2.9% + 20p transaction fee. To avoid this fee you can now cash out using Circle)

Only Complete Surveys You’re Eligible For

As mentioned previously, Prolific Academic are very good are giving you surveys/studies that you always qualify for. I have never been locked out of a survey because I didn’t qualify, which is a common theme with most survey sites. So I’m glad that I’ve never had this problem, and it’s been like that for most (if not all) users of Prolific Academic.

You Can Earn Money For Charity

One of the things I like about Prolific Academic is that you can earn money for charity. So you can choose if you want to earn the money for yourself or if you want to donate it.

 

 

Cons


Surveys Aren’t Always Regular

Most times you’ll receive email updates of new surveys, but sometimes there are studies that are filled before emails can be sent out, so you may not always have surveys available. One way around this is by visiting the site one or two times a day to see if there are any new studies available.

As they are looking for specific demographics you may not always be eligible for the current surveys, but it’s always good to check in every once in a while as there are new studies being posted daily.

 

How Much Can You Earn?


In regards to how much you’ll earn, you can generally expect to earn between £0.30 – £2 per survey, and I’ve personally seen some studies pay up to £4 each.

 

Payment Proof


I’ve included a screenshot of my payment proof to Paypal, just to show you that this site is legit and a genuine way to make some money online. I was able to cash out £20.41 and received payment within a few days.

prolific-academic-payment-proof

UPDATE 2017: Prolific has now added Circle as a cashout method. Paypal payments require a 2.9% + 20p transaction fee. But with Circle, there is no fee involved once you reach £20. See below for payment proof using Circle.

 

 

My Final Thoughts


Overall I think Prolific Academic is a good legitimate site to use if you’re looking to make some additional money online. It differs from most survey sites in a positive way, which is why it’s one of my favourite sites to earn money from.

Do I Recommend Prolific Academic? YES! It’s really easy to get started and a nice way to supplement your income, while also helping academics with their research. I also like the idea of being able to donate your earnings for charity, and I think this is a really great touch. If you’re interested in another recommended survey site of mine, check out my Mintvine review.

6 Easy Ways To Make Your Website Content More Social!

ways to make your website content more socialIn this day and age social media has become a major part of our lives. According to brandwatch.com there are 2.3 billion active social media users, and internet users have an average of 5.54 social media accounts. That’s a lot people you could potentially reach with your blog and business using different social media platforms. So, if you haven’t already, now is the time to make your website content more social and help your business grow online.

Some of the top social media accounts include:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest 
  • Google +
  • Youtube
  • …to name a few

 

Why is this important for your website and your business?


Social media is a great way to market your content and/or services, and build useful relationships.  We live in a world that is driven by social media, therefore you definitely don’t want to avoid the opportunities that social media can bring to your business. Below are some of the reasons why social media is so important:

For Traffic:

You can share your blog on your social media accounts to increase the traffic coming into your site. One of my top traffic sources is Pinterest, and being more active on that account has had a positive impact.

As a Marketing Tool:

Using social media can be a good way to create instant updates with your followers, and create buzz around your brand.

Networking:

You can interact with like minded individuals and network with other people in your field/niche. You can share ideas and/or maybe even work together.

To Help You Build An Online Presence:

Having a successful blog takes time to build authority, but having active social media accounts with many followers can increase your credibility and lets people see you are someone who knows what they’re talking about.

To Increase Your Learning:

You can learn a lot with the information you come across via social media. Being active on social media means you’re likely to stay up-to-date about things happening within your niche.

So now that you’ve understood why social media is important, it’s time to know how to actually make your site more social. If you’re not sure how to do this, don’t worry as I’m about to share with you 6 easy ways to make your website content more social and easier for your readers to share your content.

 

1) Create Quality Content


First and foremost, you need to create quality content if you ever what it to get shared. Give your readers an article that’s worth sharing. Don’t forget to also make it relevant and readable.

Also, it’s important to keep your site content updated regularly and provide your readers with helpful information. That’s what I always aim to do with every post I create.

 

2) Use Social Sharing Plugins 


Using social plugins makes sharing your content much easier for your readers. I’ve seen many websites online that don’t make use of social plugins, and it puts me off sharing because there’s no easy method to do so.

Most people visiting your site won’t have the time to copy your website link and manually input into their social media, therefore you need an easily accessible plugin to make your content more shareable.

 

social-sharing-plugin

 

I personally like to use the Simple Share Buttons Adder plugin, but there are many to choose from such as:

I usually like to place the social sharing buttons at the bottom of my post, and you’ll see the same buttons below this post.

 

3) Use ‘Click to Tweet’ Plugin


This TweetThis plugin allows you to create text that you would like your readers to share on twitter. This plugin is free to download and can easily be installed onto your website. It’s a really good plugin to have because it very easily encourages sharing within you content. Below is an example:

 

 

You can also use the Click to tweet   plugin for the same purpose. Whichever plugin you choose will depend on personal choice.

 

4) Invite Readers To Connect With You


One thing I highly encourage is letting your readers connect with you via social media. The best way to do this is to link your social media accounts to your theme and have them appear on your site. If someone really likes your blog/website then they’ll be more likely to follow you on social media as well.

As you can see from the screenshots below, I have links to my Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Youtube channels around my site as I like to make it easy for people to be able to follow and interact with me on social media.

 

social-sharing-buttons-to-connect-with-visitors

 

 

5) Social Media Widgets


You can add widgets to your site that will further allow users to connect with you on social media, and show users your latest social media posts. It’s also a really good way to show your readers what to expect when they join you on your social media platforms. Some examples include adding a Pinterest board to showcase your latest pins, or a twitter widget to display your latest tweets.

 

6) Encourage Your Readers To Share and Comment


To get more shares and comments you can kindly ask your readers to do so. Encourage your readers to engage and interact with you further and always try to respond when you can. I usually just leave a little message asking readers to comment by sharing their experiences of a product/program, or any questions they might have.
On that note, I hope you found my article on 6 ways to make your website content more social useful. If so, please feel free to share, and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to comment in the section below.

Clixsense Review 2016 – Is It The Best Paid To Click Website?

UPDATE July 2017: Unfortunately, you can no longer earn via the Paid To Click (PTC) ads and Clixgrid methods.

 

What is Clixsense?


Clixsense is a Paid To Click (PTC) site that’s been running since 2007 and pays it’s users for completing different tasks online. Some tasks include viewing ads, surveys, playing games and completing offers. It’s very easy to get started with Clixsense as it’s free to join and simple to create an account. Once you’ve signed up you can begin earning right away.

 

Can You Really Make Money Online With Clixsense?


You’re probably wondering if you can really make money online with Clixsense, and the answer is Yes, you can…however, I wouldn’t want you to quit your day job as the the amount you earn isn’t going to make you rich in any way. For the most part you’ll be earning pennies to view website ads and complete tasks. Although it doesn’t have high payouts, it is a genuine way to make some money online, and I will discuss the multiple ways to earn below.

 


Are you interested in starting an online business? Take a look at my #1 recommended training program to help you get started!


 

Ways To Earn Money Online With Clixsense


1)  View Ads

The main way people earn from Clixsense is by viewing ads. It’s the fastest and simplest way to earn money on the site and ads usually last between 5-60 seconds.

clixsense view ads

The length of the ad will determine how much you will earn. Below is a breakdown of the earning potential

5 seconds – $0.001

15 seconds – $0.005

30 seconds $0.01

60 seconds – $0.02

 

2) Clixgrid

Clixgrid is a grid game whereby you click on random squares within the grid in hopes of winning up to $10. With each square you click you’ll have to view a 10 second ad. After viewing the ad you’ll find out if you’re a winner or not. If you’re not a winner then you won’t earn anything. So a bit of a gamble for your time if you don’t win anything.

clixgrid - clixsense- review

 

Most of the recent winners only won about $0.10 or $0.25, which isn’t very much for the amount of time you spend on the grid. You get 30 chances a day to try and win. I’ve spent some time doing this and unfortunately I’ve never won anything from it so far.

3) Surveys

Another way to earn money with Clixsense is by completing surveys. You’ll be prompted to complete a survey profile, which is just questions that you’ll need to answer about yourself. The aim of this is to provide you with surveys that fit your demographic and to fit you with surveys you’ll qualify for.

clixsense-survey

However, based on other users review, you’ll still be presented with many surveys that you won’t qualify for, despite filing out the survey profile. So it’s possible you’ll spend ages completing the qualification questions and then finding out that you don’t actually qualify for that survey…that’s a complete waste of your time and you don’t get reward at all for that time.

 

clixsense surveys
I personally haven’t tried using the surveys on Clixsense to make money. I tried many years ago, but remember not being very successful with it, so I decided not to even bother with surveys when trying the website out again this time around.

4) Microtasks with Crowdflower

You can also earn money by completing microtasks with Crowdflower. You’ll need to create a Crowdflower account, but you can sign up through Clixsense and it doesn’t take too long.

clixsense-complete-tasks

You’ll be presented with different tasks, but when you first get started the earning potential will be very low. My first task was only paying $0.02, and I was required to transcribe audio.

screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-00-14-01

 

As you complete more and more tasks, you’ll move up the different levels. As you move up the levels you’ll have the chance to earn more from the tasks. So if you want to use this method for making money it’s encouraged that you stick to it as much as you can at the beginning, as you’ll start seeing better rewards as you move up the levels. I’ve seen some reviews of people making up to $40-50 from microtasks alone…once they’ve reached the higher levels.

Below is an image that shows some potential jobs that are available. As you can see, you have to be at a certain level to complete a few of these tasks.

clixsense-tasks-potential-jobs

I’ve only recently begun looking at the “Tasks” section of Clixsense, so I haven’t achieved the levels yet. If I have any new updates regarding microtasks I’ll add them here.

 

5) Complete Clixoffers

You can earn extra by completing offers which include signing up to websites, taking surveys, entering competitions etc.

clixsense-complete-offers

 

 

6) Clixsense Bonus/Daily Checklist

Clixsense has a daily checklist to help you earn money on a daily basis. This is a good way to earn something everyday, and you can keep track of how much you need to do, and how much you’ve earned for that day. If you can keep up with this on a daily basis, then you could make a nice little bit of money.

 

Clixsense bonus

 

 

Other Features:


Playing Clixsense Games

Clixsense has some games that can be played on the site, however you can not make money by playing these games, they’re just for you to enjoy. I think these can be entertaining to play every now and again.

clixsense earn money playing games

 

ClixAddOn

This is a tool that sends notification of any new tasks or offers that you can complete. It can be downloaded for Google Chrome, Firefox and Opera browsers. With this tool it’s more likely that you’ll get more PTC ads and get earlier access to surveys and tasks, because you’ll be notified of them sooner than other members.

 

 

So, Is Clixsense a Scam?


Although the earning potential of Clixsense is quite low, it is definitely NOT a scam. Clixsense is a legitimate website, and a real way to make some money online.

 

Price


Free

Clixsense is completely free to join, and you can remain a free member as long as you want.

Premium ($17/year)

There’s an option to upgrade to premium if you feel you will benefit from being a premium member, which will cost you $17.

Benefits of being a premium member include:

  1. Higher earning potential
  2. Some premium users have mentioned having more earning opportunities (i.e. more ads to view), which looks about right based on the screenshot below.
  3. Paid up to $2 for each referral
  4. More chance to win Clixgrid. This is because you’re given 60 chances as a premium member vs 30 chances as a free member.

Below is a screenshot from Clixsense which gives you a better idea of what the benefits are if you decide to upgrade:

clixsense standard vs premium

I’d recommend that you only upgrade if you believe/know you’ll be able to get many referrals, and stay up to date with the daily checklist. If you’re not likely to make more than $17 a year then it’s not going to be worth the membership fee.

 

Who is it for?


Anyone who may be looking to make some extra money online. But I would recommend that you don’t spend hours and hours on the site.

 

Who is it NOT for?


  • Those not interested in PTC sites. – If you don’t like spending time clicking through ads…especially for pennies, then this website is not for you.
  • Those who want to earn more than a few pennies online. If you’re someone who wants to have a bigger earning potential then Clixsense will not be for you. A good alternative would be to start your own online business.

 

Pros


Multiple Ways To Earn

Free to Join

No Experience Needed

Trustworthy website

Clixsense has been running since 2007 and has been successfully paying members since. They’re a good company, and would be my recommended PTC site for anyone thats interested in earning with this method.

Pays via Paypal

Clixsense pays its members via Paypal, which I’m glad about. You can also cash out with other payment platforms such as Payza and Neteller.

clixsense payment options

Clixsense Forum

You can interact with other Clixsense members within the forum, and take a look at different success stories and payment proofs.

clixsense forum

 

Cons


A lot of time required to earn decent income

To earn any decent amount on Clixsense you have to spend a lot of time completing tasks.

Only one account per household

Rarely qualify for a survey

Most people will find that they don’t qualify for a survey, even though they’ve filled out all the profile questions. It seems that the chances of actually being able to qualify for a survey is very low. And in the end, you get no reward for time you spend completing the qualification questions. (Here’s a survey site that pays even if you don’t qualify)

High payout threshold

If you’re not completing surveys, then you might have trouble reaching the $8 threshold…unless you’re lucky enough to win $10 on Clixgrid. Considering you’re paid between $0.001-$0.01 for clicking ads it will probably take a long time to reach that threshold. The best way to earn more is to take part in all the different earning methods.

 

Tips To Earn More Money With Clixsense


If you’re interested in making money through Clixsense then I want to provide some tips that could help you increase your earning potential

1. Sign up to Premium

If you really want to boost your earnings, then you could consider signing up to premium. It’s $17 a year, but you’ll be able to earn more than a free user.

2. Earn more with Referrals

This is probably the best way to earn more with Clixsense, and it’s the method that most Clixsense members use to maximise their earnings. The referrals would have to be active in order for you to earn. So the more referrals you have, the more likely you are to earn more money.

3. Buxenger

If you haven’t heard of Buxenger before, it’s basically a very useful app that allows you to speed up your earnings from viewing ads. You can also use it to manage your Clixsense account and any other PTC accounts you have more effectively. It’s free to join, with the option to upgrade for only $2 a month. This app won’t necessarily make you earn more, but it’ll allow you to earn faster, therefore saving you time to do other things.

In order to understand it better feel free to watch the tutorial video below.

My Final Thoughts


Overall, Clixsense is a legit website that allows you to earn some money online…but don’t expect to get rich with it. As you can probably tell, I don’t think it’s something to spend a lot of time on. Maybe you can find ways to make use of the site to fit in with your day to day activities without wasting too much of your time. For example, you can view ads or use Clixgrid during TV ad breaks.

As you can see, it’s very low paying and not really worth a lot of effort. Instead, you could use your time to build an online business. That’s what I do, and I have a free online business training program that you can join to help you get started.

Is Clixsense the best PTC website? Personally, I think it is one of the best PTC sites to earn money from. Although you won’t earn a lot for viewing sites, you still have multiple other ways to earn from the site. Ultimately, if you work hard enough with Clixsense there’s still a good opportunity to earn some decent money from it. So if you feel you can make it work then I’d recommend you give it go.

No Brainer Profit System Review – Is It Really A “No Brainer”?

no brainer profit system reviewI happened to stumble across this program a few months ago online, and was interested initially because of the name “No Brainer Profit System”.

I actually decided to invest some time into this program for a few weeks, as it was free to join, and I wanted to see whether or not it really was a “no-brainer” system.

This is my No Brainer Profit System Review.


Name: No Brainer Profit System (NBPS)

Website: www.NoBrainerProfitSystem.com

Price: Free to Join; Bronze $7; Silver $47; Gold $97 ; Platinum $497

Owners: Andy Luong and Chuck Nguyen

Rating: 7/10

 

What Is The No Brainer Profit System?


The No Brainer Profit System is a training platform designed to help people who want to learn affiliate marketing, how to build an email list, and/or build multiple streams of income online. The program is primarily aimed at new internet marketers, however, there is a lot of content available for more experienced online marketers as well.

The NBPS is completely free to join, and as you go through the free training you can choose to purchase any of the 4 levels that will unlock a collection of more advanced training videos, which I will discuss in further detail below.

 

Who Are Chuck and Andy?


Chuck and Andy are 2 Australian internet marketers that have been successfully making money online for many years. They are the owners of this online training program, as well as many others, which have received many positive reviews. They also offer a lot of valuable content online through their Blog and Youtube channel. With this program, both owners are accessible through Skype and social media, primarily Facebook.

 

Training


The program introduces itself as a free to join program with optional upgrade levels.

Over in the members home area, you’ll watch a video that helps to introduce you into the system and shares the importance of List Building in creating a successful online business. You’re given an idea of how the NBPS will help you build a list and how you can use that list to promote your affiliate offers.

After watching the video on the home page you’re encouraged to join the private access Facebook group and introduce yourself. I feel this is a nice way to interact with other members of the NBPS community and get additional help in your business. You can also connect with Andy and Chuck directly on Facebook, and have a free Skype consultation with Andy too.

 

Step 1: Setting Up Your System


no brainer profit system setting up your systemThe first video presented here is all about how to set up your system correctly before actually driving traffic to the system, and you’re given a more in-depth overview of why building a list is so effective. It’s clear from this point that the initial aim of the training is to help you build an email list which you can then use to promote relevant affiliate products.

Once you’ve completed this video you’ll find a further 4 videos that will guide you step by step in setting up your system and connecting it to either Getresponse or Aweber.

The training here is relatively basic in my opinion. For someone who is familiar with affiliate marketing and online business, the information and training here will probably not be new, however, I did gain a few little nuggets of information here and there.

If you’re a complete beginner, I believe this step will allow you to learn some valuable information about list building and how to set up an email autoresponder, for free.

Once you’ve completed the system set up, you can then start working on building your list (provided you know how to get targetted traffic).

If you’re familiar with driving traffic to a capture page then you’ll probably have no issues getting people to join your list, and I found I was getting a decent number of email subscribers. However, if you’re a beginner then it’s very probable that you’ll struggle with this, and unfortunately, there is no free training within the NPBS to help you get targetted traffic.

That’s where the Bronze Level comes in…

 

Step 2: Bronze Level (30 days to $10K)


no brainer profit system bronze levelThe Bronze Level costs $7 (one-time payment), and this will allow you to begin earning commissions with the NBPS. Before you potentially invest in the Bronze Level you can watch a video that will give you a little introduction of what to expect.

The bronze level focuses on getting targetted traffic to your capture page. Finding targetted visitors is an important part of being successful online and in affiliate marketing. The thing I like about the training videos is that they’re not just for helping you promote the NBPS, it can be used to help you promote other affiliate products/programs.

The Bronze Level is set as a 30-day plan, so you can watch 1 video a day and implement the tasks set for that day. This is great if you’re in a full-time job or taking care of a family and might not have a lot of time, so you can go at your own pace.

The first few videos will focus on your mindset and goals, then the next few days will work on free traffic methods which you can start implementing easily.

As you continue on you’ll be further introduced to paid traffic methods. This is probably more likely to suit seasoned affiliate marketers and people who have more available money to spend on these methods. Whichever situation you are in you are likely to find a few traffic methods that you’ll be able to utilise and get traffic to the NPBS, or any other affiliate product you may wish to promote.

Overall, I was very happy to make the $7 investment for the Bronze Level, and I feel I learnt some additional traffic methods which helped with building my email list.

Once you’ve purchased the Bronze Level you’ll then be able to start earning 100% commissions for the level. All you have to do is get your account approved and sign up to the program that your commissions are paid into…Zaxaa. There’ll be a video which you can watch and follow step by step to set up your affiliate commissions and your Zaxaa account. This process won’t take too long, and it’ll allow you to start earning when you promote your affiliate link.

I would have preferred if they paid directly via Paypal, but so far it looks like Zaxaa is a legitimate payment platform, and you can even link your Paypal account to receive payments.

Can this course really get you to $10k in 30 days? Maybe…maybe not. Either way, I feel the content was still worth the $7 investment.

 

Step 3: Silver Level (The Ultimate Bundle)


This is essentially 3 courses rolled into one. You’ll be able to watch an introduction video to get an idea of what to expect from the Silver Level. The Silver Level costs $47 (one-time payment), and you’ll be able to earn 100% commissions.

The 3 courses include:

28 Day Affiliate Challenge:

The aim of this training is to teach you how to pick a profitable niche, find a good affiliate product to promote, how to create a lead magnet to build your list with the help of squeeze/capture pages, and how to create high converting emails and drive traffic to your offers.

Easy-Commission Hacks:

These videos aim to show you how to leverage some programs to earn commissions with little or no competition.

Additionally, if you need more information before joining you can always get in contact direct with the owners to find out more.

 

Tools & Resouces


Choice of 5 capture pages to promote the system

no brainer profit system capture pages

Done For You Traffic Packages:

The program allows you to buy traffic through the system. They claim to be able to provide quality clicks to your capture page. I haven’t purchased any of the clicks, so I can’t comment on the quality or if they’ll give you any commissions. The average cost is $100-120 for 100 clicks.

Autoresponders:

They recommend autoresponders such as Getresponse and Aweber. If you don’t have an account with either of these providers then you can easily join and access their 30-day free trial. It’s especially great if you’re just trying out NBPS and want to get started with setting up your system correctly.

 

Who Is No Brainer Profit System For?


This program is suitable for:

  • Complete beginners – I think beginners will benefit more from the free membership and the Bronze, Silver and Gold levels (if you choose to purchase them).
  • Experienced internet marketers – Those who are experienced will most likely benefit from the Platinum level as it is more in-depth and discusses multiple income streams.
  • Those looking for affordable affiliate marketing training – I think it’s affordable in the sense that some levels are low-cost, and there are no monthly fees. But ultimately it’s up to you to decide how much you can afford.

 

Who Is No Brainer Profit System NOT For?


This program is NOT for anyone looking for a “get rich quick scheme”. Although there is an opportunity to make good money from this, you have to be willing to put in the work and effort to go through the training and take appropriate action.

 

Support


There are a few different ways to get support for the system. There’s a little blue support button below which you can use to type a message. I actually used this once and unfortunately didn’t get a response. Update: I have now received a response, and Chuck kindly apologised for the delay, and even offered a little freebie!

no brainer profit system support 1

You can also get support access with each level you unlock.

no brainer profit system support 2

Furthermore, you can get support from the Facebook group. If need be you can also contact Chuck and/or Andy directly through Facebook.

no brainer profit system Facebook group

I haven’t tried to request support using the last 2 methods, so unfortunately, I can’t comment fully on the response time. If I do require additional support I will update this page.

 

Pricing


I think the program offers a very good pricing structure. It’s free to join, and you can remain a free member as long as you like and just focus on building your email list. There are no monthly fees, so you’re not tied down, and on most levels, you can earn 100% commissions if you choose to unlock those levels. I will break down the pricing structure below:

1. Free

2. Bronze Level: $7 One Time Payment

3. Silver Level: $47 One Time Payment

4. Gold Level: $97 One Time Payment

5. Platinum Level $497 One Time Payment

 

Pros


Newbie Friendly

Free to Join

One Time Payment

If you choose to purchase any of the different levels you’ll only have to make a one-time payment. Therefore you’re not tied to any monthly fees.

Shows you how to set up your Autoresponder

I already knew how to do this, but if you’re someone who’s new to autoresponders and email marketing then I think this is helpful training to have.

Access to Private Facebook Group

I like that there is a community where people of this system can interact with other members. So far I haven’t seen a massive amount of interaction, but there is some and it’s helpful to see how others are doing with the system. The owners also provide some advice and updates on the program which is useful. I would personally prefer the community system to be available within the actual program to avoid having to switch between tabs, but at least there is a community available.

Video Tutorials

There are many training videos available which means it is easy to watch the owner as he completes the different tasks, and follow them step by step.

Easy Way To Help You Build An Email List

I felt that the NBPS allowed me to build an email list quite quickly. I did promote the program using a few different free traffic methods and was able to start building an email list just using the squeeze pages provided. There are a choice of 5 pre-designed squeeze pages and 7 different email swipes to help you promote the program.

I found that trying to build my list with NBPS allowed me to really understand the importance of building a list and I began focusing more on my email marketing strategy. I was able to improve my autoresponders for my site and for the NBPS, and I’m still learning what methods will work for me.

14 Day Money Back Guarantee

Low Ticket Priced Training with Valuable, Actionable tasks

The paid training starts at a low cost of $7, and it’s a one-time payment. This is one of the lowest prices I’ve seen for a program like this, especially for a one time fee. I especially like that there are no monthly charges, which means you can get good value for a low price.

Cons


Not Much Training in Free Membership

I think there is some good value offered in the free membership, however, it was pretty basic, and you won’t be directly profiting from this information unless you upgrade to the other levels. If you’re mainly focused on building your list with the program, then this might not bother you as much.

Some Levels Are Too Costly, Especially for Beginners

Most people will probably be able to afford the $7, however, after that, it might be too costly for some people.

Not Much Training on How to Build a Website/Blog in the Free Training:

I didn’t see any training on how to build a website or a blog, however, the NBPS doesn’t require you to build a website in order to promote the system.  The main training for creating a blog/website is only available in the Platinum Level, which costs $497 to join, so that might not suit your budget. I personally already know how to create a blog, and it’s even possible to create a website for free. You can start now by entering a cool name for your blog in the box below.

Doesn’t Pay Affiliate Commissions Directly via PayPal

Despite this, you can still link your Paypal account to Zaxaa in order to receive commission payments.

Some of the Content in the Videos Does Not Match What is Actually Present In The Program

This can make things a bit confusing as there are features seen in the videos which are not actually available in the current program. For example the video for the “done for you traffic” package provides the cost of traffic for Diamond level, however, there is no longer a diamond level in the system. Although the videos were created before changes were made in the program, I think the videos should either be updated, or there should be text somewhere on the site to clarify why the videos are different from what is currently available in the system.

No Written Training

All the training in the NBPS is presented as videos. I personally like to have the option of both, so I was a bit disappointed with the lack of written content.

 

My Experience


I feel this program has really helped me with building my email list and understanding the importance of it, however, I have not yet had a chance to test whether I can earn affiliate commissions from this list. Currently, my main goal is to work on building my list and I’m glad to see this is helping me do so.

I also decided to purchase the Bronze Level as I felt the program could offer value, and I felt that $7 really was a “no brainer”. (Note: I haven’t purchased any of the other levels).

Overall, I’m happy to promote a product like this because it offers a lot of value, and for the most part, it’s not too expensive.

 

Is No Brainer Profit System The Best Online Program For You?


Essentially, this is a choice you need to make for yourself, and I hope my review has been able to give you the opportunity to make an educated decision.

FURTHER READING: 6 Simple Ways To Find The Best Make Money Online Program For You!

I think the NBPS is better looked at as training program rather than just another “make money online” system. I feel that overall there is some quality training available in this program and the chance to learn methods that you may not find anywhere else, for the price.

Below is a table I use to personally help me decide whether a program like this is worth joining.

is no brainer profit system the best make money online program for you

 

My #1 Recommendation


I definitely believe that the NBPS has a lot to offer, and I’m also glad that the program can be used as a training platform.

If you’ve gone through this review and concluded it’s not for you, and you’re looking for an alternative, then I want to introduce you briefly my #1 recommended online training program. I am an active member of Wealthy Affiliate, which is a program you can join for FREE and remain a free member for life if you choose too.

The Wealthy Affiliate FREE membership includes:

10 Lesson Course:

You’re automatically enrolled onto Wealthy Affiliate’s “Online Entrepreneur Certification: Getting Started” – You have access to 10 lessons which teach you how to get started online and set up your website. ( As well as the “Affiliate Bootcamp” course)

2 FREE websites:

You can create 2 websites completely free when you sign up to Wealthy Affiliate, and you get access to premium hosting and support for your sites.

Personal Help & Support:

When you sign up for free, you don’t just get help and support from me personally, you also get assistance from other members of the community, and even from the owners. You have access to live chat for the first 7 days, and you really get to have a feel for the program and what to expect if you decided to upgrade.

Earn commissions as a FREE member

With the Wealthy Affiliate program, you can even earn commissions as a free member if your referral upgrades to premium. Additionally, commissions get paid via Paypal.

 

How does NBPS compare to Wealthy Affiliate?

wealthy affiliate vs no brainer profit system

 

Special Wealthy Affiliate Bonus

If you join me at Wealthy Affiliate, as a special bonus you’ll get your first month for only $19. That’s over 59% discount. It’s a great way to really test out the premium membership and see if Wealthy Affiliate is for you.

However, you can always get started with the FREE membership first. Check out my review here.

 

My Final Thoughts


There you have it, my No Brainer Profit System review, and I hope I’ve been able to give you a balanced overview of what it offers.

I believe this is a very good program for anyone new wanting to learn affiliate marketing, and even for those who are more experienced. I especially like that it is free to join, and you can get a feel for what the program will provide from watching the free training videos.

Despite the many positives of this training program, I will be using it solely for list building, and if I make affiliate commissions on the bronze level then that will be an added bonus.

My recommended program is Wealthy Affiliate and I feel that it is an all round excellent program with so much to offer. It’s a monthly membership, but there is always new training being added and the site has been running for more than 11 years with huge success and as an active member of Wealthy Affiliate I have been making monthly commissions and learning how to build a successful affiliate marketing business online.

Jaaxy Review – What is the Jaaxy Keyword Tool About?

Name: Jaaxywhat is the jaaxy keyword tool about

Website: www.Jaaxy.com

Price: Free Trial (30 searches), Pro ($19/month), Enterprise ($49/month)

Owners: Kyle and Carson

Rank: 8/10

 

What Is Jaaxy?


Jaaxy is an advanced keyword tool that offers a collection of features to allow you to take your Keyword research to the next level. With this review, I want to share with you the ins and outs of the Jaaxy keyword tool, as well as share my experiences with the program.

You’re probably on this page because you’ve been looking for a Keyword Research tool to help you with your online business. Whether your business is Affiliate Marketing, Youtube or eCommerce, keyword research plays a big part in improving your business.

In my previous post, I discussed the Alphabet Soup Technique as a free method to find new keywords, but this post is all about Jaaxy and why it’s my recommended Keyword Research Tool online.

 

What’s Included?


Search Keywords

The main aspect of the Jaaxy platform is to help you find quality keywords, and as you go through the program you’ll learn how to pick the best keywords based on the data provided. Below I will briefly break down what each piece of data means, while using “best men shaving razors” as an example keyword.

how to search keywords on jaaxy

Avg: This is the amount of searches that are made per month for the particular keyword. For example, the keyword “best men shaving razors” can expect to have 199 monthly searches

Traffic: This shows the number of visits you’ll get to your website if you achieve first-page ranking. For example “best men shaving razors” has a traffic amount of 34.

QSR (Quoted Search Results): This shows the number of competing pages available online for that chosen keyword. In regards to Jaaxy, a QSR of less than 400 has a good chance of getting ranked. For example “best men shaving razors” has a QSR of 12, which means this keyword is likely to get ranked well on search engines.

KQI (Keyword Quality Indicator): This represents how much quality there is for your chosen keyword. Based on Jaaxy, a KQI that is green is a good quality keyword. For example “best men shaving razor” is has KQI which is green, which means it’s a good quality keyword.

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation): An SEO score will show you how likely you are to rank on the first page of google. The score is between 1-100, and the higher the score the more likely it is for you keyword to rank on the first page of Google. For the keyword “best men shaving razors”, the SEO score is 98, which makes it an overall good keyword to rank for.

Domain Search: This feature allows you to see the availability of domains for your chosen keyword.

Related: On the right-hand side, you’ll see a list of additional keywords that are related to your current keyword. This gives you the opportunity to research more potential keywords, and allow you to dig deeper into your niche.

Overall, using Jaaxy, we can see that a keyword term such as “best men shaving razors” would be a good quality keyword and would very likely rank on the first page of Google.

 

Alphabet soup

The Alphabet Soup section of Jaaxy allows you to find additional keywords for your niche by utilising the letters of the alphabet. When searching up a keyword, Jaaxy will provide you with a list of new keywords that you can use to brainstorm some content ideas for your site or some new ideas for products to review. The image below shows an example of the Jaaxy Alphabet Soup tool in action.

Brainstorm

The ‘Brainstorm’ feature of Jaaxy is another section that gives you additional keywords. It allows you to have even more potential keywords for your niche. You can further use the ‘Brainstorm’ tool to make a list of ideas you come up with and add them to your “Brainstorm queue”, which you can then go on to do full research on.

 

Affiliate Programs

The Affiliate Programs tool allows you to search for affiliate programs for your niche. It’s a great way to get started with some affiliate programs when you don’t know where to go. This tool provides affiliate programs within Linkshare, Clickbank, Commission Junction and Digital River. When this tool generates your options, you get to have an overview of the affiliate program and what it has to offer in regards to things such as the commission amount. The image below gives an example of the Affiliate Programs tool in use.

Cons

  • The bonus downloads are slightly outdated – Despite this, they still provide useful information and some more tips on how to fully understand Jaaxy and use it to its full potential.
  • There are some features that you may not use very much – For example. I currently don’t use the “Search Analysis” feature too much, but I’m glad the option is there and included in the membership in case that changes.

Alphabet Soup Technique: The Best Free Keyword Research Tool?

alphabet soup technique Are you struggling to find new keywords for your blog? Stuck writing new content and looking for some ideas? Or are you just looking for a way to find endless amounts of keywords?

If you run a blog and you’re involved in affiliate marketing, it’s common to be stuck for ideas for new content, and it’s also common to want to find popular keywords for your niche.

Well,  I want to share with you a technique that I use often to find new blog topics and keywords for blog content. The technique I use is called the Alphabet Soup Technique.

 

What is the Alphabet Soup Technique?


Sounds like a funny name right? Essentially, the Alphabet Soup Technique is a method of finding keywords using the Google Instant feature and the alphabet.

If you’ve ever searched on Google, you’ll notice that when you start to type a term/phrase into the search bar, a number of suggestions become available.

how to find keywords with google instant

Google Instant Feature

Using this feature and technique, we can find a long list of keywords that people are searching online for that related term/phrase.

It’s given this name because you use the letters of the alphabet to help you come up with new keyword results.

 

How does the Alphabet Soup Technique Work?


To get started with the Alphabet Soup Technique, you’ll need to head over to Google and type a term into the search bar. In this example, I’ll be using the term “keyword research”. As you can see from the screenshots below, all you really have to do is type in your keyword in the search bar + a letter from the alphabet. Google Instant will list the most popular searched terms first.

 

Keyword Research + “a”

keyword research + "a"

 

Keyword Research + “b”

alphabet soup technique

Keyword Research + “c”

keyword research + "c"

 

The “before” variation

You can find further keywords by putting the chosen letter in front of your keyword. See below for examples:

“a” + Keyword Research

keyword research - alphabet soup technique

“b” + Keyword Research

keyword research - alphabet soup technique

All the results won’t be perfect, but you can essentially see that this method allows you to potentially generate an endless amount of keywords for your niche.

If you’d like to see the Alphabet Soup Technique in action then I’d recommend watching the video below, which shows you how to use it in more detail.

Why Is Keyword Research Important?


Doing keyword research is very important for so many different online businesses. Whether you’re involved in Affiliate Marketing, Youtube or e-Commerce, you’ll need to be able to do keyword research to help improve your business results. It’s also beneficial when you start working on Pay Per Click campaigns as your business progresses.

 

Alphabet Soup Technique for Affiliate Marketing


With Affiliate Marketing you need to know what people in your niche are looking/searching for online. That’s why using the Alphabet Soup Technique is a very useful method for this. You can see what key phrases are highly searched and then you can use this to help you create quality content on your blogs or websites. It can also help you identify areas which you may not have considered, and may even open your eyes to a less competitive niche, within your current niche, which can even lead to better affiliate success.

 

Alphabet Soup Technique for Youtube 


There are so many people turning Youtube into a business these days, and being familiar with keywords research can help you see what phrases people are looking for within Youtube. In this situation, the Alphabet Soup Technique can be carried out using the Youtube search bar. You can find what keywords/phrases are popular in your niche and use this feature to help you think of more video content ideas. Below are some example screenshots:

Alphabet Soup Technique for Youtube

Alphabet Soup Technique for e-Commerce


This technique can even be used if you have an e-Commerce business. Whether you sell on eBay, Amazon, Etsy or via Shopify,  keyword research is important in helping you get more sales to your products. You need to know and understand the keywords that your audience are likely to search for in order to optimise your product listing.

The Alphabet Soup Technique may even be used to help you find new products to sell that are related to your niche. Who knows, you may end up finding a profitable low competitive product to sell, all because of keyword research.

When I first started my eBay business I was clueless about keywords. But as I went through the training at Wealthy Affiliate I was able to fully understand the importance of keywords and how they can boost your sales. I did a lot of work on improving my keywords and because of this, I was able to improve my sales greatly as people were finding my products better. Luckily, this isn’t just limited to eBay, it can be applied to other e-Commerce businesses too.

 

Overall, this just goes to show that Keyword Research is an important aspect for most online businesses, and doing this research can help improve your business success. The Alphabet Soup Technique can be copied to many different types of business, which is why it’s one of the best FREE keyword research tools/methods in my opinion.

 

What I Like About The Alphabet Soup Technique 


  • Free:

The Alphabet Soup Technique is completely free, all you need is access to the Google search engine (or any other search engine).

  • Easy to use:

This technique is so easy to use and doesn’t require any technical knowledge. So long as you know how to search on Google you’re good to go.

  • Lots of results:

Using this technique will allow you to generate lots of keyword results, and there’s so many different ways to generate new keywords.

  • New content ideas:

The Alphabet Soup Technique is great for helping generate new content ideas for your websites or youtube channels. As mentioned before, it can even help you come up with new ideas for products to sell in your e-commerce store.

  • No need to join or download software:

When using the Alphabet Soup Technique there’s no need for you to sign up to any program or to download any software. You just head over to Google (or any other search engine) and start searching.

  • Method can be used on other search engines:

Another good thing about this technique is that it doesn’t have to be limited to only Google . You can use this method on Bing and Yahoo, as well as Youtube, for some extra results.

 

What I Don’t Like About The Alphabet Soup Technique


  • No Stats:

When using this tool with Google Instant (or other search engines), you don’t get to see the detailed statistics for any particular search term. For example, you’re not able to see how many searches your chosen keywords get monthly, and how much traffic you can expect to receive. It’s also harder to gauge the competition for that keyword.

  • Can be time-consuming:

This is a problem which usually comes from free methods. Using the Alphabet technique with Google Instant (or other search engines) can be a bit time-consuming cause you have to manually go through each letter of the alphabet to get new results.

 

Additional FREE keyword research tools


Ubersuggest

ubersuggestUbersuggest uses the Alphabet Soup Technique to come up with results for keyword phrases. The website has gotten a lot better since the last time I used it and you can get an extensive list of keywords related to your root search term. You can even search via country to make it more specific. When you click on each keyword you can also see the “Google Trends”, which allows you to see how popular that keyword is in a graph format. Below are a few examples of searches I received for “Keyword Research”.

Jaaxy

Jaaxy is my recommended Keyword Research tool and it offers a free trial to allow you to test the full program. You get given 30 searches and it’s a great way for you to test out the program before making any purchases. Jaaxy has an in-depth search function which gives you lots of statistical details on different keywords. It also allows you to search for keywords with the Alphabet Soup Technique.

Keywordtool.io

Keywordtool.io is a free online tool that allows you to search keywords on different platforms such as Google, Bing, Youtube, and Amazon. It doesn’t use the Alphabet Soup Technique, but it’s useful for finding more keywords. There’s a free option, but it only provides limited results. If you want more results and data you would need to upgrade to Keyword Tool Pro ($48-$88/month)

My #1 Recommended Keyword Research tool


jaaxy recommended keyword research toolMy personal #1 recommended Keyword Research tool is Jaaxy.

Although it’s not completely free, it does offer a free trial of the full program and it offers so much more than just a list of keywords.

You can get started with the free trial which gives you 30 free searches. Then you can choose to upgrade to one of the 2 paid memberships, Pro ($19 per month) and Enterprise ($49 per month)

I currently have the Pro membership and it’s the one I personally recommend using, especially if you’re just starting out.

FURTHER READING: Jaaxy Review – What Is The Jaaxy Keyword Tool About?

If you join Jaaxy, you can also use the Alphabet Soup Technique feature to instantly find keywords without manually having to type in each letter of the alphabet (my preferred method). So in the example below, I used the phrase “keyword research”. Once you’ve gotten your results, you can make it more targeted by clicking on  “Find Data” and then you’ll be given further related keywords which you can use. At the time of writing the image below shows the results I received:

My Final Thoughts


Overall, I personally recommend using the Alphabet Soup Technique for finding new keywords for your online business. You can see what terms are being searched on Google. Luckily, this technique isn’t just limited to Google, and it can be copied over to Youtube, Bing and Yahoo search function.

 

Is the Alphabet Soup Technique the best free method to find keywords?

 

In my opinion, yes it is the best free method for finding new/additional keywords.  I like that you’re able to get lots of results and you can find new keywords that you may never have thought of before. However, it can be very time-consuming if you search manually, and if you use Google Instant you won’t be able to see all the important stats for  potential keywords. So to overcome that I would also suggest using additional free online websites such as Ubersuggest and Jaaxy (free trial) for the Alphabet Soup Technique.

With all that being said, the technique is a great way to find keywords completely free, and a good way to find some new, fresh content ideas. I personally like to use this method alongside Jaaxy for more in-depth research.

Gold Opinions Review – Here’s My Opinion

gold opinions review homepageName: Gold Opinions

Website: www.GoldOpinions.com

Price: 7-day Trial $1, then $27 monthly fee

Owners: Paul Parker

Overall Ranking: 2/10

 

What is Gold Opinions?


Gold Opinions is a program aimed at helping people make money online by taking part in online surveys and focus groups. The website claims that they can help you “enjoy the good life” through taking online surveys.

 

Misleading Claims

I needed to make a comment on the many misleading claims made on the sales page. If you’re someone who’s taken online surveys before you’ll know that the earning potential isn’t that great. I’ve been taking online surveys for over 1 year, and although there are sites that I recommend, I don’t spend a lot of my time taking part because you just don’t get paid much per survey.

The sales page claims that you can earn $5 for 10-15 min surveys and $15-$30 for 30-40 minute surveys.

gold opinions review

Gold Opinions Misleading Claims

As someone who often takes surveys, most 10-15min surveys usually only pay $0.50 to $1.50, and you’d be very luckily to get $5 for a 30-minute survey. So these claims that they’ve made are very misleading

Although you can make money online with surveys, you will not be making enough to live on. The site gives the impression that you can “enjoy the Good Life”

 

gold opinions review

 

They also claim that they can help you make £1000s per month. This is just not possible. It’s difficult for most people to even make $100 monthly purely taking surveys. With the amount that you’re paid you’d probably have to do a few thousand surveys every month and this alone will be very time-consuming. There are much better methods for making money online in that same time frame.

 

Screen Shot 2016-07-17 at 18.11.03

 

Yes, $1000 a month solely taking surveys would be awesome, but this is very unrealistic and I don’t agree at all with programs like this making such claims to encourage unsuspecting people to sign up.

 

What’s included in the Membership?


There are 4 main sections included in the membership and a contact page:

  • Getting Started
  • Premium Paid Surveys
  • Paid Surveys By Country
  • $400 Sign Up Bonus
  • Contact Us

Getting Started:


Here you’ll get a basic walkthrough on taking surveys and a few tips to help you get through the surveys faster.

They recommend using a program called Roboform (free to download), which will be used to help you complete the screening questions faster because your passwords and details will be saved so you won’t have to enter them manually for every survey. I think it’s a good tip to share, however, it won’t make taking the actual surveys any faster.

 

Premium Paid Surveys


There are about 160+ survey sites that they list in this section. Although the list includes many sites that are legitimate, it also seems to lists some sites that don’t pay their users. I don’t think it’s right for them to get you to pay monthly for this service if they can’t even provide you with legitimate survey sites which pay its users.

As you go through my website, you’ll see that I only review survey sites which definitely pay its users, and I also always like to add payment proof for extra confirmation. I wouldn’t feel comfortable encouraging you to try a program when I knew it didn’t pay its customers, it’s not right.

 

Paid Surveys By Country


Here, you’ll get surveys grouped depending on your country. I think this is quite a handy feature to have, and may make it easier for non-US members to find surveys more easily.

 

$400 Sign Up Bonus 


I think the title for this section is a bit deceiving because it gives you the impression you’ll immediately get a $400 sign up bonus, however in this section you’re just given another list of survey sites that give it’s users sign up bonuses. The total of the bonus adds up to about $400, hence the name.

As mentioned before, you can sign up to the survey sites, and get the sign-up bonuses completely free without having to join and pay monthly for Gold Opinions.

Who is it For?


This program is for those who are interested in paying someone $27 a month to get a list of survey sites to make money from.

If that’s not you then I’m glad to hear it.

I personally cannot agree with charging someone $27 just to access a bunch of survey sites. There’s no need to pay for that information.

If you genuinely still want to check out this program I would only suggest that you sign up for the $1 trial, make a note of as much information as you can, then cancel before the 7 days are over.

I believe the information is worth up to $1, but definitely not $27, every month!

 

Who is it NOT For?


This program is NOT for anyone interested in making a genuine full-time income online. This program will not help you make that sort of money online. Making money online from surveys alone is not a job that someone can live off of.

Also, this program is NOT for those who don’t believe people should be paying for this information.

Although I like the idea of having a list of survey opportunities in one, easily accessible place, I don’t like the idea of being charged $27 for that information, and the owner(s) are still most likely going to profit from referral earnings.

If you continue reading I can list a few survey sites that I currently use and would recommend to others. They’re all free to join, and I wouldn’t ever charge you to access that information. I also know many bloggers who provide lists of survey sites on their blog and don’t ever charge for that information. There’s just no need.

 

Support


Gold Opinions seem to offer live chat support, however when I clicked on “live support online” my message was sent to the team as an email rather than as a live chat message. They also have a “Contact Us” section which involves using contact forms.

I’ve not really had any contact with the support team, so I’m not really able to comment fully.

 

Pricing


7-Day Trial: $1

Monthly: $27

 

Pros


  • $1 Trial

Although I’m not happy with the monthly fee, I do like that you can try out the program for a very low price. If you’re interested, then $1 is a very small price to pay for this information, which I do also feel is quite valuable information for that price.

  • Roboform Tip

I like that they provided some useful tips in the “Getting Started” module, such as downloading the Roboform software, which is free to download. The software won’t make the taking surveys faster, but it can help speed up the time it takes to get through the pre-screening questions.

  • Surveys Grouped By Country

I think this is a nice feature to have as it makes it easier for members to find surveys that are suitable for their country, and therefore are more likely to qualify for.

Cons


  • Too Much Hype

I definitely believe the sales pages puts too much hype on how much one can really earn. Yes, surveys can make you money, and yes they’re quite easy to do, however, you’re NOT going to be earning $1000s a month, nor are you always going to be earning $5 per survey. There will be surveys out there that pay $5, but they’re usually very specific, and it can be difficult to qualify. You’re more than likely only going to be earning $0.50-$2 per survey.

  • Monthly Fee 

You’ve probably gathered by now that the main thing I don’t like about this program is that they charge a $27 monthly fee. As mentioned above, the information they provide is, in my opinion, very easily accessible online. You can find countless blogs and websites that list survey sites and focus panels completely free online. Yes, these blogs have their referral link, but you’re not losing any money to them, and they’re not charging you at all to access the information. Therefore, it’s a shame the owner(s) of this program felt it was right to charge others for this information, and especially charge them as high as $27 every month.

As I mentioned before, the information provided is worth the $1, but not worth the monthly fee.

  • Misleading Sales Page 

Overall, the sales page is just very misleading. I take surveys quite regularly and I know that the claims they’ve made on their site are just not true or consistent with real earnings.

For example, below is a screenshot of some of the earnings I made for completing surveys with OfferNation. As you can see, most of the surveys only paid out $0.10-$1.10.

offernation survey earnings

OfferNation Survey Earnings

This is a more realistic value of what you’ll be earning with surveys.

I also complete surveys through Mintvine, and the screenshot below further shows what you can expect to earn when completing surveys

mintvine survey earnings

Mintvine Survey Earnings

As you can see from the screenshot above, my most recent survey earnings ranged from $0.40-$1.35. To be honest, $1.35 is one of the higher paying surveys, and they’re usually 20-30 minutes long, but I was lucky on this particular occasion and it only lasted about 10 minutes. (Also, one thing I really like about Mintvine, compared to other survey sites, is that they pay even if you don’t qualify for a survey, as you can see from the earnings above – see my Mintvine review here)

The reason I’m sharing these screenshots is just to give you a better idea of what you can really expect when you complete online surveys.

For some, taking surveys is a nice way to earn a little extra money, but unfortunately, this program gives you the impression you’ll be making a full-time income from it, which is just not true, especially not in my experience, or in the experience of many others. So, please don’t believe all the hype.

  • False Information About How You’ll Get Paid

If you head over to the FAQs page, the site gives some false information about how you’ll be paid to complete surveys. They claim that you’ll get paid “twice a month, every 15th and last day of the month”

gold opinions review frequently asked questions

This is misleading information because it’s not Gold Opinion that pays you, your payment comes from the individual websites that you join, and each website has it’s on minimum payment threshold. This means that you need to earn a certain amount before you can withdraw your earnings.

Additionally, not all survey sites will pay in cash/checks, some will only reward its users with gift cards and vouchers. So, unfortunately, the site is giving out misleading information here again.

  • Their justification for why they charge a monthly fee

Another question came up in the FAQs about why they charge a fee to its members. Having read their response I still do not agree with them charging a fee. Take a look at their response in the image below:

gold opinions why they charge a fee to join

Firstly, they say that they charge a fee so that when you join they won’t earn commission from the money you earn taking surveys. If that’s the case then I’d rather they earn a commission from my earnings, cause that way I won’t be losing $27 to this program every month.

Also, they won’t actually be taking any commissions directly from my earnings, the survey site will give them a commission based on how much their referral earns.

For example, if a survey pays out $0.50, the person who referred me might earn something like $0.05 (10%) of that if I complete the survey. Once I complete the survey I’ll still earn the full $0.50, therefore, nothing is actually taken away from my earnings.

They’re making this claim to give you the impression that they’re doing a better thing by charging you, but unfortunately, this is not the case.

Gold Opinions should not be using this as a justification for charging a fee.

Secondly, they also claim that it costs them thousands of dollars to gather this information online. As stated before, there are many bloggers/websites owners online who compile extensive lists of survey/focus group sites, and they do not ask people to pay for access to it. The paid content provided by Gold Opinions is not really that much more different than the free content we see from blogs and websites online.

Is Gold Opinions The Online Program For You?


A while ago I wrote a post on how to find the best “make money online” program for you. Below is a table of questions that I personally use to decide if a program is going to be right for me. Although I know I would never pay for a program like this, I thought it would still be a good idea to summarise Gold Opinions against those questions.

Is Gold Opinions The Best Program For You

Although Gold Opinions allows you to try the program for $1, my question really relates to programs that offer a free trial. Additionally, I didn’t find that they had very good training, but that’s mostly because there’s not much training that can be involved in taking online surveys. They did provide a few tips, but as explained before, a lot of these tips are easily accessible online for free.

Overall, Gold Opinions is definitely not a program for me. Although it ticked a few boxes, I just don’t feel it is a program of value, and I don’t like how they encourage people to pay a monthly fee for such as program. You may have a different view, but I just wanted to share my personal opinion and thoughts on the program.

 

My #1 Recommendation


I’m an active member of Wealthy Affiliate and I personally like to recommend this program because it provides you with a training platform that allows you to learn how to earn an income online through Affiliate Marketing. It gives you access to the right tools and training to help you get started.

Wealthy Affiliate offers a different service to Gold Opinions, but I wanted to share it here because I think it’s a program that will benefit people looking to make an income online. Affiliate Marketing gives you the opportunity to earn a real full time or part time income online without spending hours completing surveys. You can focus on things you enjoy, and Wealthy Affiliate helps you achieve that.

To be honest, I could go on about Wealthy Affiliate for ages, so it’s better for you to just take a look at the comparison table below and read my review here.

Looking for legitimate survey sites?


If you’re looking for some legitimate survey sites to join then below is a list of some that I personally recommend and use often. I’ve written reviews on a few also, so you can get a better idea of what they’re about:

Mintvine

OfferNation

Google Opinion Rewards

Prolific Academic

 

Final Words


You can probably tell that I don’t personally recommend this program. Essentially you’re paying for a program to give you access to surveys that are readily available online for free.

I don’t mind that there’s a site out there that lists all the recommended survey/focus group sites, however, I don’t think it’s fair to charge a monthly fee for it. There are lots of blogs online that list lots of surveys, completely free, so there’s no need at all to have to pay a monthly fee.

I think you’d be better of searching on Google for blogs that list legitimate sites rather than signing up to this program.

However, if you’d still like to join then I would only recommend that you sign up for the $1 trial, make a note of all the information, then cancel your membership before the 7 days are finished.

5 Famous Muhammad Ali Quotes To Inspire You In Life (And In Your Online Business)

muhammad ali quotesYesterday the world lost a man who was a hero, and an inspiration to many, and I would like to dedicate this post to him.

Muhammad Ali was a professional boxer who broke down barriers. He was nicknamed “The Greatest” and although he was known to some for being controversial, he was mostly known for being inspirational.

Therefore, today I want to share my favourite famous Muhammad Ali quotes that have inspired me in life and in my online business, and I hope they will inspire you too.

 

 

Quote #1:

“I Know Where I’m Going And I Know The Truth, And I Don’t Have To Be What You Want Me To Be. I’m Free To Be What I Want” – Muhammad Ali

I know where I'm going and i know the truth, and I don't have to be what you want me to be. I'm free to be what I want

This quote is inspiring to me because it’s helps me stay focused and not be beaten down by the naysayers. There are people out there (some who are close to you), that will put you down, and say that your dreams are too big, but there’s nothing wrong with dreaming big. If you know you want to change your future, then you need to get into the mindset, and work hard towards it. In relation to your online business, you don’t have to be stuck in a 9-5 job that you hate. You can begin shaping your future and work towards doing a job that you love. Some people will say it’s not possible, but you can prove to them that it is possible!

 

Quote #2:

“What Keeps Me Going Is Goals” – Muhammad Ali

what keeps me going is goals

This kind of ties in with quote #1. You need goals to stay focused and to have something to work towards. I personally recommend having small achievable goals, rather than big unspecific goals, because those small achievements (or small wins) build up into the big goal you’ve wanted.

 

Quote #3:

“He Who Is Not Courageous Enough To Take Risks Will Accomplish Nothing In Life” – Muhammad Ali

he who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life

It’s pretty  easy to only want to stay in your comfort zone when it comes to life, and your online business. I can understand because I have been there myself, and there’s still things I don’t like to venture into. But when it came to my online business I knew I need to change that in order to accomplish anything, I needed to take a risk.

You want the financial freedom, but you’re not willing to take the risk. For many, the risk can be just getting started in the first place. But how will you know what you can acheive unless you take the plunge and get stuck in. With the help of this quote, I encourage you to take a risk today and change your future. If you’ve always wanted to start an online business but don’t know where to start, take a look at my recommended training program to help you get started.

 

Quote #4:

“It’s The Repitition Of Affirmations That Lead To Belief And Once That Belief Become A Deep Conviction, Things Begin To Happen” – Muhammad Ali

It's the repetition of affirmations that lead to belief and once that belief becomes a deep conviction things begin to happen

If you believe that you can change your future then you are more likely to work hard towards that. Encourage yourself over and over in order to see that good things can start to happen.

 

Quote #5:

“I Hated Every Minute Of Training, But I Said… “Don’t Quit, Suffer Now And Live The Rest Of Your Life As A Champion”” – Muhammad Ali

i hated every minute of training but i said, don't wait, suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion

The quote pretty much speaks for itself here, and it’s one I’ve lived by all my life. When I work I think about my future and how the work I do now will eventually pay off. The road to your success may seem long and hard, but put in the work now so you can enjoy “the rest of your life as a champion”. The good thing is, with an online business, you don’t have to hate the training or the journey. If you create a business based on a passion, then it can be enjoyable.

 

Final words


There you have it, 5 famous Muhammad Ali quotes to inspire you in life (and in your online business). I hope you have found these quotes encouraging, and if so, please feel free to share with others who you think need a little bit of inspiration.

What’s your favourite quote from the list? Are there any other M.Ali quotes you find inspiring? Please share your comments in the section below.

 

BONUS QUOTE :

Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

What Is Affiliate Commission Pro? – Is It Worth Your Money?

 

what is affiliate commission proName: Affiliate Commission Pro (ACP)

Website: www.AffiliateCommissionPro.com

Price: $1 Trial then $47/month + Upsells

Owners: Jeff Baxter, Huw Hughes, Aiden Corkery

Overall Ranking: 6/10 (but NOT worth monthly fee)

 

While researching this product I came across a lot of the Affiliate Commission Pro reviews that were pretty biased. Those promoting the program were basically just other affiliates who are looking for a sale, and only regurgitating what’s already on the sales page. What makes my review different is that I’ve actually purchased the product and I’m giving my full unbiased opinion. There are things I like about this program, but there are also many things I dislike about the program. I wanted to share with you a genuine insider view so you can make a balanced decision for yourself. So read on for my official Affiliate Commission Pro Review.

 

What Is Affiliate Commission Pro?


affiliate commission pro review

 

Affiliate Commission Pro is essentially a training program designed to help newbies succeed with Affiliate Marketing. The program provides training videos which are designed to give you the tools to make money online through affiliate marketing, and to help you make sales within a few days. Although the program teaches you how to make money selling the program, you are also able to use the training to help you sell other affiliate products.

It was started up by 3 internet marketers, Jeff Baxter, Huw Hughes and Aidan Corkery, and launched 16th March 2016.  Taking a look at their backgrounds, I can see they all have had success in the affiliate marketing world, so it would make sense that people would want to listen to the advice of those who have also been successful. However, is this program still worth your time and your money? Well, as you read on you’ll find out more.

 

Tools and Training:


affiliate commission pro review

ACP Tools and Training

Main Product: $47/month

 

9 Training videos

Marketing Center – This is where you’ll find the squeeze page you’ll be using to collect emails, and where you’ll connect your Aweber account to send your new list the “done-for-you” autoresponder email series. You’ll be taught how to set this up during the training. You will need to create an Aweber account, but luckily Aweber has a 30 free trial if you want to get started.

Tracking Software – This is where you’ll be able to track your leads and sales. It makes it easier to see everything in one place, and you can create unique tracking codes in order to help you identify where your leads and sales are coming from. This will also be taught/shown to you in the training videos.

Free Bonuses – You are given a bunch of free bonuses, which range from eBooks to other internet marketing programs. Some of the bonuses are links to other programs which require you to enter your email, so basically you’re joining someone else’s email list and they’ll be marketing their online programs to you.  I didn’t really make use of the bonuses, as they just didn’t appeal to me, and I wasn’t interested in joining any other programs.

 

What’s Included in the Video Training?

 

Video 1: Overview

This just gives you a brief overview about ACP and how to access the different sections

Video 2: Signup For Your Autoresponder

In this video, you will be creating an Aweber account (if you don’t already have one)

Video 3: Creating Your List and ACP Integration

In this video, Jeff will show you how to set up you list and integrate your Aweber account with ACP. It’s pretty straight forward and the training shows it in easy to follow steps.

Video 4: Setting Up Your Followup Messages

This video will teach you how to set up follow up messages in your Aweber account. Jeff will provide you with follow up messages to use as your autoresponder. He lays it out in a simple, easy to follow method so you are essentially copying and pasting the information he provides into your autoresponder.

Video 5: Building A 10K Mailing List Fast While Making Money Simultaneously

Here Jeff teaches you how to build a mailing list of up to 10k, and also earn money at the same time. The method he suggests to help you reach 10k subscribers is by using solo ads. He provides you with a reputable solo ads website and shows you how to purchase ads from  sellers that are worth the money. If you’re on a tight budget then this method will be difficult for you to implement, but he does offer a free facebook traffic method later on. The idea that you’ll be making money as well as building a list is based on the fact that, by getting your squeeze page out there, you are building a list and getting buyers to the ACP program at the same time. You’ll then learn how to use that method to increase your list up to 10k.

Video 6: Posting A Forum Classified Ad

In this video, you’ll be taught how to post a forum classified ad. This is also another paid traffic method.

Video 7 & 8: Free Traffic And Sales With Your Warm Market

In these 2 videos, he’ll show you how to get free traffic using Facebook. This is an option if you’re on a tight budget, however, I wish he would have presented some additional free methods, as I don’t feel this is enough. The warm market is basically people that you know, and I feel that, unless you know people on Facebook that would willing to join you in the make money online business, it’s not likely you’ll get people to join through this method.

Video 9: $10,000 a Month Selling Traffic

This video gives you a little insight into how you can use your newly formed 10k list as a way to make money more online. You’ll be shown a method that will allow you to benefit and make money using your large list. This method will only really work if you have a big list, so you’ll have to wait until then to really benefit from this tutorial. However, it’s still worth watching then you have an idea of what will be involved when you finally do reach 10k.

Upsells (One Time Offers):

 

#1 – Affiliate Social Pro: $17 OTO (4 videos)

Affiliate Social Pro

“Learn how to get absolutely free traffic with the power of social media!”

 

#2 – ACP 6 Figure Continuity Workshop: $47 OTO (1 video)

6 Figure Continuity Workshop

“Learn the secrets to getting thousands of people paying you monthly in your online business!”

 

#3 – ACP 6 Figure Endless Traffic Mastery: $27 OTO (13 videos)

Endless Traffic Mastery

“Discover how to get thousands of targeted visitors to your offers daily and never have “dry spells” in your business again!”

 

 

Unfortunately, I am unable to really comment on the quality or content of these training courses, as I did not purchase them. However, I do prefer the fact that they are one-time offers, rather than being a monthly offer which provides very little value for money.

 

Who is it for?


The program is mostly advertised for newbies (however, Jeff also does say it can be used my intermediate and expert marketers).  For a beginner, all the things you need, specifically for the program, are presented to you, and you’re encouraged to just copy and paste the content that is made available to you. If you’re a total newbie then this is helpful, but if you have some experience of Affiliate Marketing I would encourage using the content in your own style, or just creating your own content. When I was testing out the program I just followed the content they had provided in order to see if their content does well on its own. So at least the options are there for you to use their work or create your own.

The program is also suitable for:

  • Those looking to make money through affiliate marketing
  • Those who have tried for ages to succeed but have failed because of lack of instant results.
  • Those who are looking to build a list of buyers rather than freebie-seekers. This is helped by the fact that the program costs $1 to get started. This means you can reach out to people who are willing to buy a product/program, thereby potentially increasing your chance of converting leads into commission – I guess that makes sense.

 

Who is it NOT for?


Freebie-seekers. If you’re someone that’s constantly looking for something for free, this program is not for you. This program  requires money to get started, and to keep going, and that’s the kind of people they are looking for…people who are ready to buy.

Just to be clear, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting something of value for free, but if you’re really serious about starting a business online, whether it’s through affiliate marketing or other methods, you will need to consider investing in money at some point. It’s all well and good to get started for free, but you need to take your business seriously if you really want to do well.

Also, this program is also not for people who are looking for a more in-depth training program, which I’m sure most of you are looking for. The content and training are just not worth the $47/month cost.

 

Support:


You’re able to put in a support ticket, which isn’t the easiest page to navigate, but I had a good response time, and you can also view the FAQs page. Another support method available is the ability to call Jeff personally. To access this 1-on-1 coaching and assistance you have to pay,  $1500 per year or $197 per month.

 

Pricing:


So I’ll just break down the pricing to make the different levels clearer:

14-day trial: $1

Main Product:  $47/month

Affiliate Social Pro: $17  One Time Offer

ACP 6 Figure Continuity Workshop: $47 One Time Offer

ACP 6 Figure Endless Traffic Workshop: $27 One Time Offer

 

Pros:


  • Newbie Friendly

If you are a total beginner, then some training videos will be useful to you. However, you’ll find that much of the training is also readily available for free online, such as how to find products on Clickbank, and how to set up an Aweber account.

  • Video Tutorials:

The tutorials are given step by step and are very easy to follow

  • Tracking software:

The program offers a tracking software which helps you track where your leads and sales are coming from.

  • Shows you how to set up an autoresponder with Aweber and how to integrate it with the ACP program:

Although you’re shown how to set up an Aweber account, there are also many free videos online that can teach you how to do so. I guess the difference here is that he shows you how to integrate your Aweber account with the ACP program, which will allow you to keep up with your leads and sales.

In order to implement this training,  you will have to set up an Aweber account, if you don’t already have one. Luckily Aweber offers a 30-day free trial, so if you do try ACP out, you won’t have to worry about paying for Aweber for at least 30 days. If you already have Aweber you can just sign in with your Aweber account and create a new campaign. He will show you how to do this.

  • 14 -Day trial for $1:

The trial also comes with Money Back Guarantee. Although I prefer to have a free trial offer, $1 isn’t a bad deal if you have decided you would like to join the program. You can create your account with either Credit Card or Paypal. I always prefer using Paypal, so at least that option is there.

  • Access to Private Facebook Group:

This is a way for you to interact with other members of ACP, and to find motivation and stay focused. However, at the time of writing this, there isn’t very much interaction between the members, and not much going on in the group, Although it is still a very new program, the lack of value in the group just isn’t useful for a newbie

  • Teaches you how to create a list using Aweber:

The program also provides you with a pre-designed squeeze page. I think creating your own squeeze page is better, but for a newbie, who doesn’t know about squeeze pages, this can be a useful way to capture leads for your email list.

 

Cons:


  • Not enough training:

The main course only has 9 videos, and they’re very short, probably lasting 5-10 minutes each.

  • Have to upgrade to get full access to features:

In order to have full access to the program, you’ll be spending $47 monthly + up to $91 in One Time Offers.

  • The videos cannot be expanded to full-screen mode: 

Although the videos were simple to follow, the lack of full-screen mode was a bit frustrating for me as I like to make the videos bigger so I can fully see what is happening. The program is still new, so this is something that could be sorted over time.

  • Overall the content is very limited:

The content is limited, especially for the price. As mentioned above, the main course consists of 9 videos and the only additional features are the tracking software, the marketing center, and the bonuses.

  • Need to pay to get fast traffic:

In order to get fast traffic, you’ll have to use paid methods, which can be quite costly, especially for a newbie.

  • The free traffic method involves contacting friends and family:

Generally speaking,  friends and family tend to be least interested in your online ventures. The majority of them believe it is not possible to make money online and will avoid your attempts to get them to join any program you suggest to them. Therefore, this method may not work so well for many people. Other than this, there are not any other free methods mentioned in the program.

  • Upsells and Downsells:

I wouldn’t call this a con entirely because most, if not all, programs have upsells. They’re also not heavily priced which is good. But you can’t get much value from this program unless you purchase these other products. I was able to get through the main training videos and implement the tasks within a few hours. For some this is good cause it means you can get rolling as soon as possible, however, considering how much you will pay monthly, it is quite a big investment for very little value.

  • Doesn’t show/teach you how to build websites:

You are shown how to purchase a domain in order to redirect your affiliate link, but there are no lessons on building a website. That is because, with this program, it suggests you don’t need to build a website to make money online. This is true, however, I think having a website is an essential part of having an online business and creating a brand for yourself.

You can create your own FREE website in the next few minutes by entering a name in the bar below:

  • Not worth $47 monthly fee:

In my opinion, this program is just not worth the monthly fee. You don’t get much value, and you can be done with the main course in a few hours! I’ve used the program for almost 2 weeks and I have not seen any new features or any new content that would encourage me to potentially invest in a monthly fee with this program. I believe it would be better suited as a one time offer.

The online training program I personally use, and recommend, offers TONS more value, and for the same price. (Review here)

 

My Experience:


I implemented the tasks step by step as shown in the video. I tested it out for a few days to see how fast I’d be able to make some money. As mentioned before, I was able to get through all the training in the main product, within a few hours. For some this may seem good, but how much value can you really get from a monthly membership if you are able to finish the training in a few hours.

I didn’t implement the traffic methods suggested because they were paid methods, so I just implemented a few free methods, and I was able to get some leads. I got 7 leads in the first 24 hours…but no sales. Although I didn’t get any sales in a few days as suggested, there are a number of reasons for why that was. I didn’t implement the paid traffic methods, so that would have played a big part. Also, because I invested time in free methods, it’s likely my list was made up of freebie-seekers, therefore, they would not have been very interested in making any payments, and it usually seems to take longer to convert leads to sales via free methods.

Overall, I could not justify ever paying $47/month for this program. I wasn’t getting any extra features and did not feel there was value for money here.

Is Affiliate Commission Pro The Best Online Program For You?


A little while ago I created a post about finding the best make money online program from you. I had a number of questions which I felt were important to ask yourself about a program before deciding to join, and the table below will summarise Affiliate Commission Pro against those questions.

So, in this instance, Affiliate Commission Pro was not for me, as it did not tick all the boxes. These are just my deciding factors, they may be different for you. but I still think it’s worth seeing whether the program really fits your needs.

 

My #1 Recommendation:


I am an active member of Wealthy Affiliate, and this is my #1 recommended online training program. It provides SO much value for less than $50/month, and you can learn how to create your own affiliate marketing business. I could talk about Wealthy Affiliate for ages, so it’s probably better for you to just check out my comparison table below and read my review.

Special Wealthy Affiliate Bonus

If you join me at Wealthy Affiliate, as a special bonus you’ll get your first month for only $19. That’s a 59% discount. It’s a great way to really test out the premium membership and see if Wealthy Affiliate is for you.

However, you can always get started with the FREE membership first. Check out my review here.

 

 

Final Words


I think there are a few good features in this program, but ultimately I feel there just isn’t enough to make it worth $47/month, and therefore I would NOT recommend this program. I think if it was offered as a lower one-time payment then it’ll be slightly better value for money, but as a monthly subscription, it’s a big massive NO.

I’d say, if you’ve already made up your mind and you’re really interested in giving it a go, then it’s worth that $1 investment and you can learn a few new techniques that you can also implement into other affiliate marketing ventures. You get to at least test it out for 14 days, then you can decide whether to become a monthly member or not.

With that being said, I think there are other more valuable training programs out there that can teach you how to give your business more sustainability by gaining trust with readers and customers.
