Now if there’s one thing I’ve learnt from my time as an affiliate marketer and blogger, it’s summed up in one sentence. Believe Nothing, Trust No-one, Check Everything! (Actually, that’s three things, but you’ll get my drift) In fact, I even have a sign on the wall near my desk with the letters BTC in large, bold text.

Here’s the sign, I just snapped it with my iPad.

bunited review not a scam

 

Having never heard of bUnited before, and being the skeptical soul I am, I assumed it was some sort of scam. Nevertheless, I thought I’d check it out.

Before using the link, I googled bUnited and quickly found their webpage. Here it is if you want to take a look.

Is bUnited a scam? Actually, I don’t believe it is. Read on and I’ll tell you why.

BuilderAll Review.

What is BuilderAll?

what is builderall review is builderall a scam

Is BuilderAll worth the money, or is it just another scam?

 

Okay, let’s cut to the chase. BuilderAll is NOT a scam. BuilderAll is a product/system designed to help anyone with setting up an online business. It does have its limitations, however, and in this unbiased BuilderAll review I’ll attempt to sort the wheat from the chaff and give you an honest appraisal of the BuilderAll Platform.

Should you invest in this system? Spend a few minutes reading this review now and arm yourself with the right information to make a much more informed decision.

Please Note: I’m not an affiliate of BuilderAll. I’m writing this review simply because it has always been my intention to offer useful information to my visitors or followers. I’m not going to sugar-coat this review. (Not that I’d do that anyway. I only recommend products or services that I know are good value.)

Legendary Marketer Club, Scam or Legit?

Legendary Marketer Review: Is This Legit, or Just Another High-Priced Scam?

duplicate dave the legendary marketer

Chances are that you’ve recently heard about the Legendary Marketer Club and you’re wanting to know whether Legendary Marketer is a genuine opportunity to make money online or another rip-off scam.

If this is the case, I don’t blame you for being a tad sceptical. I’ve looked into heaps of online money-making schemes and yes, it’s true, a huge number of them are nothing but scams designed to separate you from your hard-earned money. Some aim to do this as quickly as possible. Others will attempt to hook you into a slow drip, like the proverbial frog in hot water, until you feel you have invested so much already, you just have to keep going.

In this Legendary Marketer review, I’ll be attempting to cut through the hype and tell it like it is so you can make an informed decision about investing in David Sharpe’s newest offering. Read more

Is Hempworx a Scam, or is it a Legit MLM?

Can you Make Money Selling CBD With HempWorx?

 

I have several websites, and on one of them I promote the many benefits of Medicinal Cannabis. my daily choice hempworx - hempworx com

In particular, the main therapeutic ingredient; CBD.

I was recently contacted by another online CBD affiliate and invited to join the HempWorx program.

Now, I readily admit I hadn’t heard of HempWorx before, so I decided to do some research. After all, It’d be foolish of me to overlook another potential income stream.

In this article, I’ll be sharing with you exactly what I learned, and what my take is on the HempWorx Affiliate Program.

 

So What is the HempWorx Program?

and

Can I Make Money with HempWorx?

 

First of all, let’s clear up one important point. Although HempWorx advertises their sales system as an affiliate program, it’s actually an MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) Scheme.

My Internet Journey

learn how to make a retirement income from home

I first discovered the ‘net way back in 1994. In those days, it was all dial-up connections and pages that took up to several minutes to load. Boy, we were a patient lot back then!

I guess I always knew the internet was going to become big for business, but no-one, I’m sure, could forecast the internet as we see it today. I, and most people I know, never dreamed that it would become so easy (and, some say, so hard in many ways) for ordinary folk like you and me to become online entrepreneurs and be running our own internet businesses.

Digital Altitude; Is This a Scam or a Legit Opportunity?

This post was written on Dec 14, 2016

 

Digital Aspire Promo

 

A friend of mine was thinking of investing in Digital Altitude, and asked for my opinion. I hadn’t heard of it, so I decided to do some research.

Now, I have to be honest and say from the start, that the fact that this is a Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) scheme acted like a red flag for me, but nevertheless I agreed to review the scheme with an open mind.

I signed up for the $1.00 “free trial” so I could access the program and be able to make some informed comments. Read more

What is Affiliate Marketing?

 

 learn to build your own online businessFor the uninitiated, affiliate marketing is a term used to describe the common practice of posting ads or links into a website in return for payment. This payment could be on a pay-per-click (PPC) or a commission basis or some other arrangement. The job of the affiliate marketer is to create and publish content that people will want to read.

When I say “content”, I could be referring to a travel blog, a writers’ website, a fishing site, whatever. You could publish articles that either answer a question or supply information that someone has searched the web for. It could be as simple as “What’s the best blender for home use” or “How to do crocheting” or “What’s the best fishing lure for Coral Trout”.

Amazon Affiliate Opportunity EN

Would You Like to Build an Online Business as an Amazon Associate?

(It may be easier than you think)

Amazon.com, Inc., was founded by Jeff Bezos on July 5, 1994.

After a slow start, during which they made no profit at all, Amazon showed its first return on investment ($5 million, on revenue of more than $1 billion) in late 2001. This amounted to just 5c per share. It was Bezos’ plan to start slowly, but I can’t help wondering if he knew it would be that slow.
.
Fast forward fifteen years, however, and the company’s 2016 revenue was almost $136 billion in the US alone!
amazon services llc associates programToday, Amazon has separate retail websites for the US, the UK and Ireland, France, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Brazil, Japan, China, India, Mexico, and now Australia.
There are also Dutch, Polish, and Turkish language versions of the German website and they also offer international shipping to certain other countries for many products.

Amazon Australia – Open For Business!

The Amazon Australia Store is Now Open.

.

The Amazon juggernaut continues to dominate the online retail world.

Their latest addition, Amazon.com.au, is now fully operational.

.

Dec 2017. Up to now, Amazon Australia has only marketed books and digital products. The full service Amazon.com.au store was originally expected to open in time for the Black Friday sales on Nov 24. Some behind the scenes issues delayed the launch, and no doubt the back room boys were frantically burning the midnight oil ironing out any glitches. (Much better now, rather than later, I guess) As of December 5th we now have an (almost) fully stocked and functional Amazon Australia store.

There’s an informative article here from Wikipedia on Amazon’s history.

In another post, I’ve written a detailed review of the Wealthy Affiliate group.

(There’s a link to that review here.)

.

Back in November 2016, I’d recently retired from my business in the transport industry, and was at a bit of a loose end. Not being the type of bloke to spend my days playing bowls or going fishing every day, (not that there’s anything wrong with that, if it’s what suits you) I decided to look into online marketing. I’ve been a writer of sorts for many years, although I’d never really taken it seriously. It was, along with music, my main creative outlet. Stories, articles, poems – I’ve been published once or twice, but never really set the world on fire. Let’s face it – I’m no Hemingway.

Make money scams are everywhere

Anyway, I researched ways to make money online, signed up for a few schemes, and got ripped off more than once! It seemed that everywhere I looked, someone was trying to separate me from my hard-earned money. Mostly promising huge returns for little effort (but at a cost, of course) while delivering very little genuine advice or guidance.

Eventually, I decided to try Affiliate Marketing, also sometimes referred to as Blog Marketing.
