mobe.com - a "Online Business Education" system with hidden ownership

by Rudolf Faix 25. June 2015 06:33

MOBEmobe.com is nothing else than a "Online Business Education" system. Their affiliate system promises earnings between $ 4.95 and $ 13,500 per sale. The system finances itself by a sign-up fee of $19.95 and a monthly membership fee of $ 19.95. At their site https://mobe.com/mobe-affiliate-program/ is written:

A monthly membership fee of $19.95 is applicable to maintain your affiliate program active. The fee covers the back office functionality, reporting, affiliate tools, and hosting.

With other words they are not enough earning that they are able to finance the back office functionality, reporting, affiliate tools and the their hosting. That is already not the best promotion for their system. By respecting this sentence already you'll see how hard it will be to sell their "Online Business Education" system. In my eyes is this promotion already a big fail. What can you learn about online marketing from such a company, which make terrible mistakes already on their website?

If you don't have a website, which has an Alexa global ranking under 50,000 and 100,000 followers in the social networks like John Chow then the sign-up and membership fee is only a waste of money. You can spend this money in a better way if you are inviting your wife or girl friend for a dinner each month. In this case you get at least something for your money. The same is valid for me with around 2,000 contacts from the social networks and with my blogs, which have around 300 unique visitors per day. In such a case you'll only help to promote and finance their system without getting something in return.

Even in the MOBE earnings disclaimer is written:

If you choose to promote MOBE products and live events as an affiliate partner, you understand your results will depend on many variables. Although MOBE can show the results of past and current affiliate partners, there is no way to predict what your individual results will be. MOBE has affiliate partners that have earned many hundreds of thousand of dollars promoting our products and events, and MOBE also have students that made no money, and students that have landed somewhere in-between these two extreme scenarios. Purchasing this product does not guarantee that you will have a certain result. Promoting MOBE products and events as an affiliate partner is like any real business with potential results that range widely, depending on many factors including you. We share this with you so we can insure that you made this decision to purchase our product with the correct expectations.

You should even think how much overpriced the products are if you can earn up to $ 13,500 per sale. No system can pay you more than the earning on a product are. If a system will pay you more than the earnings are and does not make winnings on another way then the company will run into bankruptcy very fast. Overpriced products will make it even harder to sell them. You'll need to find a lot of stupid people, which trust you blind in such a case. Such people are very seldom to find,

The overpricing is shown at the end of the page of the Platinum Membership program very good:

As a valued License Rights Partner, you get $1,250 commissions when we follow up on your leads and we sign up new License Rights members.
When you upgrade to Titanium, you then have the ability to earn $3,300 commissions.

Now, when you become a Platinum Mastermind member, you get $5,500 commissions when our phone team follows up with your leads and sells your Platinum rights.

You will be in the ultimate position of leverage without doing ANY extra work, and will have boosted your earnings potential from $1,250 a sale, to $10,500 a sale.

You need to think about the membership fees too and not about the commissions you'll get promised. The membership fees will increase dramatically too. For this you should think about the balance which will remain and not only on the earnings. You'll can be sure that this system and training is built up that way that you need to continue into the next step for not losing your investments.

Additional is the domain owner from mobe.com hiding his identity by using a proxy service. Maybe he is afraid to get to many gifts by snail mail from his happy customers. If we use Google we can find a lot of this happy customers from mobe.com - here are a few examples:

Ways To Avoid Scam Online:

Your ONLY goal within the system is to sell the system to others, you buying some prepackaged information is just a distraction from what is really going on. You refer people to this system (often times your friends/family) and the engine behind MOBE will take care of the ruthless upsells (people buy in for $49 and quickly realize they are going to have to drop $10,000’s if they want what they need).

You should also read the user comments on this site. At the moment are getting 174 found there. It will give you a good impression how the business is running at mobe.com.

Avert Scams:

  • Well it’s basically a replica of Empower Network scheme, only that it is on the high end of the continuum – obviously not for a newbie.
  • It is for those without morals or ethics and are prepared to dupe or suck in others at any cost.
  • Those who think they will make money on MOBE by selling its products forgetting that they are the ones ready to be plucked or they are all Matt’s customers.

 

Legitimate Job from Home:

My Online Business Empire, also known as MOBE, is just another scam out to take money away from people by feeding them the same old garbage, that they will make back more money in return for little work. Matt Lloyd is a sneaky liar and I'll explain why in just a bit. Though I personally lost only $49 to see what this program was all about, I know many others are losing THOUSANDS more.

The reader comments are interesting at Legitimate Job from Home too.

Summary: Nobody would promote a get rich system on the Internet if he would not need your money for getting rich by himself. MOBE is not different in this case.

John Chow dot Com - how good is he really?

by Rudolf Faix 24. June 2015 16:23

John ChowJohn Chow is calling himself at his Facebook profile John Chow dot Com. That is a reason for me to take a closer look at his work and his offers. First I have taken a look into his free eBook, what he offers.

The title of this eBook is "The ultimate online profit model" with the subtitle "The Ultimate Guide to Making Six-Figure Monthly Income on the Internet and Living The Dot Com Lifestyle". The Acrobat file has 50 pages. After title, content and self-congratulation the eBook starts at page 15 with an explanation of "The Affiliate Marketing Model" and the disadvantages of this model. At page 22 starts "The Affiliate Marketing Model That I Use". There he explains the model that you should be a real reseller of the products, create your own brand and collect the email addresses for your marketing activities.This system is absolutely correct because the money is not made with the teaser or promotion articles. The money is made with the repeating satisfied customers.

At page 24 he starts already with the tools you should use for your marketing activities. Don't worry he is a good businessman and has not forgotten to add his affiliate links to the tools. The tools, which he recommends are AWeber and LeadPages. For hosting of the high expected traffic he recommends the service from HostGator. As each online shop needs to describe their products and make promotion for it he is recommending his own services IM John Chow, Blogging with John Chow, WP Blog Videos and Work From No Home.

A dot Com millionaire need to get a a lot of traffic to this sites. Such sites should rank nearly to Google (Alexa global ranking #1), Facebook (Alexa global ranking #2), LinkedIn (Alexa global ranking #14), etc.

IM John Chow:

Building a successful online empire from scratch

A typical site how is it today normal for affiliate marketing sites. You have a caption - in this case in the background graphics integrated - and a video, which is starting immediately. With other words nothing what search engines can use for generating their index for the site. The only machine readable text is the membership fee "Just $47.00 (Plus $47 a month if you remain a member of IM John Chow)" and the disclaimer from ClickBank at the bottom of the site. Such a site is normally a big secret in the World Wide Web. If you do not promote the site by yourself permanently you'll not get some visitors to this site. This get shown by taking a look at the global ranking from Alexa:

Alexa ranking of imjohnchow.com

A global Alexa ranking of 1,500,000 equals to around 10 unique visitors a month, around 1% will click on a promotion link and from this one, which are clicking on a promotion link will only 0.5% buy the product if the product has a good promotion. With other words this site cannot be the source of his income. If you like to close or leave the page a script will hindrance you and like to give you a special offer. After confirming two popups you are able to leave the page.

 

Blogging with John Chow:

This is a special site. Here shows us John Chow that he even does not know that there are server site scripts available. If you are using an ad blocker in your browser, then you get the following view:

an impressing screenshot of bloggingwithjohnchow.com

As we see the dot Com millionaire has no real content on the site. Such a site is useless and will not bring any visitor from search engines. Even this site is a big secret in the World Wide Web. The global Alexa ranking shows it too:

Alexa ranking of bloggingwithjohnchow,com

The above Alexa ranking shows us that this is not really the site from where the millions of dollars are coming. For this we need to take the next one.

 

WP Blog Videos:

At this site we see again that John Chow or his web designer has no idea about the Internet and the functionality of search engines because the caption of the site is a graphic, which cannot get read from the search engines. At least this site contains more text, which can get indexed from the search engines. Anyway the content is nothing else than the usual self praising and he like to sell on this site a training for blogging with WordPress in seven modules for $97.

WPBlogVideos

One of this modules contains SEO (Search Engine Optimizing). I think about which content the SEO training can have if John Chow proves already at his own sites that does not have any idea about search engines. OK, this site has more machine readable content then the other ones, but the Alexa global ranking show us that even this site is not the source of his income - the site has the nearly the same ranking like the site imjohnchow.com:

Alexa ranking of wpböpgvodeos.com

 

Work From No Home:

By opening this site we get a nice surprise from the WOT (Web Of Trust) browser plugin:

WOT warning showed at WorkFromNoHome.com

 

If we continue going to the site we get the next surprise (I have used another browser):

Sold Out

This site is not his income too. Why does he name it in this case in his eBook? Only for filling the space?

After seven pages of unbelievable praising his sites, which have no success, he starts promoting the business from Matt Lloyd of Perth, Australia: My Online Business Empire" (mobe.com) and "My Top Tier Business" (mttb.com). This promotion starts at page 31 and ends at page 46. This promotion is highly exaggerated that it only can be a SCAM. I'll analyze the sites during the next days.

Summary: John Chow started with blogging very early as the blogs have been coming up. He made a good impression with his blog and he has chosen the right topic at the right time. His first book has been "Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul". He generated a few more books about getting rich from his blogs, The books are getting offered at Amazon. I think that he made a good income with his first book, but like every time a followup is never so good as the premiere. A copy of this idea with the same topic is already not possible, because there are already too many competitors at the market available. The trial attempts from above are showing us that he is searching a new income method. He tries it by creating a brand with his name. At the above ranking values we can see how successful he is by doing this. He seems to be a good writer but the ranking values are telling us another story about his attempt to be a business man.

As we can see at his sites he does not have any idea about Internet business and SEO. We can find a lot of his fails at his Facebook page (.pdf (79.64 mb)) too. It is no shame to fail - you have to learn by your own mistakes. It is only cheaper to learn by the mistakes of others. In the case of John Chow I ask myself if his "Ultimate Online Profit Model" is based on experience or is the source only his fantasy? Where ends the promotion and where starts the reality?

The only one of his sites, which has a good ranking is johnchow.com. My opinion is that this site gets visited from the readers and fans of his books. These people are hoping to get rich too. Especially he has the best ranking in India - a low wage country where most of the people are very poor. He gives to the visitors of his page the dream of getting fast and easily rich. The only one which is getting rich with such a system is site owner and the people on the top of the legal pyramid.

cashcrate.com - another time waster site with hidden domain registration?

by Rudolf Faix 23. June 2015 09:44

CashCrateThe site cashcrate.com seems to be only available for generating leads. The offered offers, surveys, bonus surveys, bonus offers and shopping possibilities are simple not available. Even the choice "surveys" seems to be loading in an endless loop. As the only possibility to make money is to bring new members. The promised earnings for each new member is $3 if the new member reaches an earning of $10. Additional you should get 20% of the earnings from your first level referrals and 10% of the earnings from your second level referrals. The minimum payout is $20. The site is collecting a lot of personal information. For giving all this information you'll get $1.50. CashCrate does not take any sign-up or membership fee.

I cannot prove if they payment will be done because it seems to be a illegal pyramid system as there no work gets found. For this I'm not able to promote the site. Maybe there is some work for US citizen available. In such a case it would be not illegal. I have used my Philippines address during sign up and for this area of the world is nothing at the site available.

If you like to sign-up by yourself then please use my referral link that we can check at least if the accounting is working: http://www.cashcrate.com/6131561. Maybe you have more success then me.

The website from cashcrate.com is hosed by using the US service from Amazon.

by Rudolf Faix 22. June 2015 17:42

ClixSenseEvery business tries to save money. In this case ClickSense has hired absolutely beginners for programming their systems. It seems that these programmers got hired directly from the school. They have designed a system without any networking experience. Additional is the system full of errors.

As I have relocated more then one year ago from Austria to the Philippines I'm still using my laptop bought in Austria, with German Windows system and with the Austrian time zone settings. I did not change the time zone settings because it is easier for me to take a look at the watch on the computer for the time to call someone in Austria. Depending on the daylight saving time in Austria is the time difference to the Philippines between 6 and 7 hours.

I have tried to make a survey after signing up at ClixSense, I got the message: "Access to this page has been denied. Access via a Proxy/VPN/VPS or from a country not on your profile is not permitted." As I have used my Philippines address and only a simple wireless router I did not feel myself guilty for this and wrote a ticket that their location system is not working correct.

The fast reply from ClixSense has been:

Hello, our system is working correctly. This problem could be related to any number of things, but the first to check is the time on your PC to make sure it's correct. Also, please check the time zone setting as well. This could be the cause of this issue. If you find the time is off make sure you log out of ClixSense, make the change to your PC, then log back in.

Thank you

As their payment offer is not the best one at the market and I don't let teasing myself from incompetent people and systems I have written them an appropriate response and deleted my account. Nobody has to say me which settings I have to use on my computer. I use this settings, which I like to use and not this one, which others need to fulfill their happiness.

During the sign-up at ClixSense you get automatically signed up at clixsenseresearch.com too. For this I tried to delete my account at clixsenseresearch.com too. There has been the same or another incompetent programmer working, because I got the following error message:

We're sorry, but an error occurred while trying to process your request. This error has been logged and submitted to our technical staff. If this is the first time you've encountered this error, you may want to click the back button on your browser and try again. We're sorry for any inconvenience.

My opinion: ClixSense should provide a good service, a good and usable system and a good payout to keep their users. Only maximizing their own earnings will be a commercial suicide. As I could do nothing as make some clicks on some advertising I even could not prove if at least the counting is working correct. Where I find two programming errors within a few minutes there would a lot more get found.

Brad Gaines & Todd Gross - calling themselves Marketing Experts - ultimate-lead-system.com - instantprofits.website

by Rudolf Faix 20. June 2015 08:45

Facebook Marketing ManiaToday I have found a typical advertisement, which shows how you get lied and deceived if you believe to promotion. The advertisement offered the free eBook "Facebook Marketing Mania - Become The Next Marketing Media Mogul By Mastering Facebook Marketing". As it has been a give away, I have ordered it by using my email account from Google. A short time later I found the download link in the spam folder. It seems that Google knows the sender already very good :).

The eBook tries to explain on 24 pages (including cover picture, content directory,copyright notice) what is Facebook and how to turn your Facebook friends into leads by making a Facebook company page. With other words you'll find in the eBook nothing new or at least one idea, which you did not know by yourself already.

More interesting is the site from which you are downloading the eBook - http://bradgainesmarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Facebook-Marketing-Mania.pdf. Marketing experts should have a site, which is very well visited and have a good traffic ranking. One of the oldest independent traffic ranker is Alexa. I know from my different sites, that an Alexa global ranking of 200,000 equals to around 300 unique visitors a day and an Alexa global ranking of 1,200,000 is equal to around 15 unique visitors a month. If we compare this values with the global ranking of bradgainesmarketing.com, a 2 year old site, then we see, that this website is a big secret in the World Wide Web:

Alexa ranking of BradGainesMarketing.com

If we take a look at the domain registry data from the landing page bradgainesmarketing,com, then we see that the site is using a privacy protection service from Panama. This is something additional, which makes the domain more suspect then trustful. Together with the Alexa ranking we can see that they have no idea from marketing.

As bradgainesmarketing.com is only a landing page. The page leads to the two months old domain ultimate-lead-system.com. This domain is registered for our surprise to Brad Gaines. Maybe Brad Gaines from Brad Gaines Marketing has learned already in the two years that hiding his identity is not good for his business. Anyway let us take first a look at the global Alexa ranking from the ultimate-lead-system.com:

Alexa ranking of ultimate-lead-system.com

As the Alexa global ranking is a ranking over the last three months and the domain ultimate-lead-system.com is only two month old, the ranking can improve a little bit every day until the website is older then three month or the marketing and the promotion for the domain gets more professional.

A time waster video (screenshot) on the site ultimate-lead-system.com explains you how you can generate leads by using their system. You have to generate sales for ultimate-lead-system.com for a one time fee of US$ 7 from which you'll get a commission of US$ 6.

The second website, which leads to ultimate-lead-system.com is instantprofits.website. There you'll find the same time waster video. This domain got created on January 17, 2015. At this time Brad Gaines did not know that a business will not be trustful by using a service for hiding the domain ownership. We see at the global Alexa ranking that the instantprofits.website domain is the biggest secret in the world wide web:

Summary: Which marketing tips can you expect from a "marketing company", which is not able to generate traffic and visitors for their own site? Why should you store and generate your leads on a system where the lead has to pay for it? If you are collecting your leads by yourself or using a free service, then you get more leads and more sales. The system does not really help you at the lead generation job. Pop-up blocker and script blocker (cross site scripting) will make more problems with the offered system then it can help you by managing your leads. The global rankings of the promoting sites are showing you already that the site owner does not understand anything from marketing. Which marketing tips can you get from such a site? If you invest the US$ 7 by inviting a friend to a beer, then you have more from your money.
