mysocialbutler.org: Offer, Promotion and Reality - How to Fail in Business

by Rudolf Faix 24. January 2016 08:51

Social Butler LogoYesterday I got a spam entry at my contact form from MySocialButler. I'm not an enemy of spam, but if I get an offer for something what I don't need, because I'm nowhere offering something except the free information about scammers, than I enjoy it to beat back by teasing the spammer.

Let us take first a look what Peter@socialb.com from http://mysocialbutler.org has entered into the contact form at my Fraud-Systems-Blog:

By reading the message above I like to know:

  • Why does he think that I need some help in social media marketing?

  • From which money he writes in the case of my blogs? I'm not offering or selling something. I'm running my blogs only for the one reason of not getting bored.

  • As he writes that MySocialButler is focused on Facebook, where did he find something on my site Fraud & Scam Systems - Blog about fraud and scam systems found at the Internet what can get offered or sold to Facebook members? Maybe I have overseen something or some information can get misinterpreted?

  • As MySocialButler is focused on Facebook, why does he not provide the Facebook address and why does not get MySocialButler found by an search on Facebook?

  • The worst sentence for any business owner and a big marketing fail is "We learn about your business and post content for you to your page that gets you new customers". The spammer and scammer likes to learn in a few days something about a business, where others need to learning years or their full life for it. It seems the scammer is overestimating his own possibilities.

Such an offer, like seen above, seems to be not only a spam. It seems that someone tries to scam hard working people. In any case is it already a big marketing fail. But the fail is even worse if we take a look at some background information which are getting easily provided by using some free tools found at the Internet.

Alexa, an Amazon company, is metering the traffic generated for the websites. Websites, which have a ranking under the 100,000 best visited websites have a plugin from Alexa where the traffic gets counted and sites ranking above 100,000 are estimated from the traffic of users, which are using the Alexa browser plugin and some other parameters. In any case gives the Alexa traffic ranking a good overview about the visitors for a domain.

If we take a look at the Alexa ranking from mysocialbutler.org than we see the very impressing message:

We don't have enough data to rank this website.

That means nobody is visiting the website from mysocialbutler.org. How someone can offer an Internet or social marketing service when he is not able to promote his own website? Who will so stupid in such a case and order some services from such a company like mysocialbutler.org?

How easy it is to generate traffic for a website can get shown by my own example. I'm the owner of the domain wwpa.eu too. I have been running on this site offers for my VoIP provider business in Austria. I have sold this business around 5 years ago. I only did not change the content of the site because I did not had any idea what I shall do with this domain. This behavior resulted in an Alexa ranking of over 1,000,000. Some people visited the site from the Google search results. The old content is until now available. On October 15, 2015 I got the idea that I still have a database of jokes in German language available and I decided to publish a few of these jokes in a blog with the address witze.wwpa.eu. Only this action boosted the Alexa ranking of the domain wwpa.eu to actually 684,151:

Alexa ranking of wwpa.eu

Additional is the ownership of the domain mysocialbutler.org hidden. The owner is using a privacy protection service to hide his registration data. That shows us that the offer is not coming from a serious company - it is coming from a private person, which likes to get rich quickly without doing something.

Each normal person, which is interested in any Internet or Social Marketing Solutions, would already put the message into the spam folder or simple delete it. But if we continue the investigations then we see that the fun is even coming better. The spammer has sent his message by providing an email address from the domain socialb.com.

If we open the website from socialb.com whe see the impressing offer that the domain is may be for sale:

Website socialb.com with the message; "This domain may be for sale"

Even the poor content of the website socialb.com has with 22,938,034 a better Alexa Traffic Rank than mysocialbutler.org:

Alexa ranking of socialb.com showing a ranking of 22,938,034

It seems to be that the owner of the site socialb.com failed already with the content of the site, because why else he would like to sell his domain? The formerly page title from the site socialb.com has been: Find Cash Advance, Debt Consolidation and more at Socialb.com. Get the best of Insurance

The domain ownership of socialb.com is hidden by a privacy protection service. Here are the domain registration data from socialb.com:

At least now 99.9% from the receivers of such a spam message, like Peter@socialb.com has sent out, would trash it without further investigations. This shows that marketing is a foreign word for the site owner from MySocialButler. Maybe he has heard somewhere that marketing is a business and tries now to make money with this information. But everybody can see what he can expect from such marketing skills as the site owner is even not able to promote and generate traffic for his own site. You'll pay for getting nothing in return!

Ok, the domain mysocialbutler.org is nothing else than a forwarding service for the domain mysocialbutler.net, but if we take a look at the Alexa traffic statistics from mysocialbutler.net than we see that even this website does not generate an impressing traffic:

Alexa statistics from mysocialbutler.net

Remember the values from my own German jokes site. The above values are calculated on the result of (Alexa - How engaged are visitors to mysocialbutler.net?):

Bounce Rate: 62.50%
Daily Pageviews per Visitor: 1.70
Daily Time on Site: 1:48

If we take a look at the warnings from ScamAdviser about the site mysocialbutler.net than we see that the site is not really a serious one:

AlertLow Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.
Site is United States United States based , But The Real Location Is Being Hidden
AlertThe owner of the website is using a service to hide their identity
AlertHigh Number Of Suspicous Websites On This Server (check the server tab)
AlertThis website is 145 Days old
AlertThe website expected life (366 days) is relatively short.
AlertThe website appears to be less than six months old

Like all other untrustworthy websites and domains is mysocialbutler.net hiding the domain ownership by using a privacy protection service:

Summary: All what you can expect from MySocialButler is that you lose money for getting nothing in return. It can be that you get some copied content from other websites with all risks. You need to hope that the content is completely rewritten, otherwise you'll see how the major search engines will rank you down. For such a useless service you have to pay monthly $197, $297 or $995 depending on the count of social network sites and on the count of copied articles. If you are lucky you'll reach the same traffic ranking like MySocialButler where 62.5% of the user are escaping as soon as they have seen the first page and the remaining users are gone in average from your site after 1 minute and 48 seconds.

Update January 28, 2016: Today, I got the same message again by using my contact form. As I have been looking at their site I have seen the best promotion ever:

Something like that can happen too, if you like to use the services from mysocialbutler.net. In such a case you can start from the beginning again. The best recommendation is avoid such services coming from script kiddies and amateurs.

Update Jan. 18, 2017: Links to mysocialbutler.org and to socialb.com removed as the domains don't not exist anymore.

TrafficAuthority - INFINITE LEVERAGE: the scam is hidden in the videos

by Rudolf Faix 12. August 2015 12:20

TrafficAuthorityAffiliate marketers how stupid are you really? I have seen that there need only someone publish a few time waster videos and promise a unbelievable income and nobody takes a look at the conditions, which are getting found at different places insde the videos.

In the case of TrafficAuthority have a lot of people signed-up during the prelaunch time and started to make promotions for them. I like to know how many of these stupid ones will pay the US$20 license fee per month (found at the marketing plan video at position 4 min 52 sec) and at least a traffic package for US$ 220? I think that 98% from them even don't know the conditions to get paid

Take a look at the conditions, which I have collected from the videos. You'll see that you have to qualify for selling the products and you have to pay a license fee. After launch you have exactly 72 hours time to qualify or your referrals are getting another sponsor. Are you really so stupid that you pay into a system where you even don't know which kind of traffic and/or clicks you'll get? You only know that the traffic is coming from USA and Canada, but you'll not know the kind of the traffic. If it is the same quality like from TrafficMonsoon and similar offers then you are only trashing money. Such a traffic will not increase your sales!

Video Company Lauch Plan:

Time Content
02:01 Our pre-launch system has been designed to give your new Traffic Authority business a Fast Start with serious upfront money on launch day
04:27 You'll be able to get traffic for your business for FREE... Apply some of your Traffic Authority earnings to your personal traffic packages.
07:04 Your cost for all of the Traffic Optimizer tools is just $27 per month.../ $20 commission
08:55 Traffic Academy $97/month $50 commission
14:25 If you haven't upgraded within the 72 hour period... Any sales and commissions that would have gone to you will unfortunately be paid out to the next qualified sponsor permanently.

Video Compensation Plan:

Time Content
06:53 you get paid as long as you are an active Traffic Authority member
07:15 The first 6 sales on each product type are split 50/50 between you and your sponsor
07:37 After your first 6 sales on each product, the split changes from 50/50 to 80/20
08:03 If you are not qualified to earn on a product, but still make the sale, That sale will be sent to your sponsor until you're qualified to earn commissions on that product.

You can get qualified to earn commissions in 2 different ways:
  1. First, you can purchase the product you want to earn commissions on
    As soon as you make the purchase, you'll be instantly qualified to sell that product and earn commissions on it

  2. Or you can sell 3 of the products you want to earn commissions on.
    When you do that, you'll be passing up 3 commissions to your sponsor, which are sales you will lose forever, but then you'll earn commissions on that product after that.
14:50 The total commission that's paid on the $1,097 Gold package is $500
15:40 The total commission that's paid out on the $4,297 Titanium package is $2,000
17:00 The total commission that's paid out on the $8,397 Diamond package is $4,000
21:03 When they're buying traffic packages to qualify to earn commissions...

 

Video Marketing Plan:

Time Content
03:47 If you miss out on that, if that 72 hour door closes without you securing your position
The members you signed up during the Pre-Launch are going to pass on the next qualified sponsor
and you WON'T getting any commissions from their purchases OR their downlines' purchases.
04:52 You'll need to purchase the official Reseller License for $20 per month
05:59 The cheapest traffic package is $220 pays $100 commissions
07:02 Bonuses that will qualify you to sell our highest paying traffic packages without having to pay full price!

My opinion is that you'll get traffic with a higher quality for a lower price if you are using Google adwords.

WOT - Web Of Trust - a good tool, but you need to use your own brain

by Rudolf Faix 26. July 2015 07:41

WOT - Web Of TrustWOT - Web Of Trust is nothing else than a free browser add-on which combines different warning sources like Malwarebytes, PhishTank, etc. with a community of users which are sharing their experience with websites, online stores, scams, untrustworthy links, etc. With other words it is rating system for websites which cannot get easily influenced or cheated.

Everybody, which likes to find some good sites for business - especially in the MLM and affiliate marketing sector, should use this browser add-on in combination with the other tools I described already at "Tools helping in evaluating the promotion and reality of affiliate networks".

WOT shows a colored traffic light next to website links to tell you which sites people trust for safe searching, surfing and shopping online: green for good, red for bad, and yellow as a warning to be cautious. The icons are shown in popular search engine results, social media, online email, shortened URL’s, and lots of other sites.

An example is shown at the following screenshot:

Sample browsing with WOT - Web of Trust

If you are accidentally opening a site which has a bad reputation you get immediately a warning like shown at the following screenshot:

Site with a bad reputation

From the toolbar you are able to take a look at the rating of a site:

WOT - Web of Trust - Ratings with comments

Following the link "View details and comments", which opens in a new browser-tab, gives you some background information about the reason for the ranking. Not all user are commenting their voting. You should read in any case the positive and negative comments and make your own decision.

Don't forget: Such tools can only help you in making your decision - they cannot hindrance you making a wrong decision.

At least can save this tool a lot of your time, which you spend normally by watching the time-waster videos of the illiterates. You'll get more information about the system and/or offered products from the comments than from the time-waster videos.

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.
