What Is An Internet Marketing Course
“I will sign up as an affiliate…and sometimes even the next day…there are 10s of thousands of dollars in commissions…just sitting there.”
This is what one course author claims about his internet marketing course.
Whoa! What is an internet marketing course? What is “Copy And Paste”?
Who said that? Ewen Chia. And how can that be true?
Well, it’s not.
If that were true, don’t you think you would have heard about that person before now? Like on the evening news? Repeatedly?
And wouldn’t you have heard about his hundreds of students who were making that money now? Here is a screenshot of one of their earnings.
Instructions? “If you have a list, no matter how big or small, send these to them now!” And he provides emails to send people.
But wait! What’s “a list”? Why would you send them these emails? And there are twitter messages and classified ads for you to use:
“He made $6,361.95 in one weekend…
all with a simple copy paste job!
Click Here To See How You Can Too…”
But wait again! You have to pay for classified ads, right?
So what are you copy and pasting here? Emails (where’s your list/what is an email list), classified ads – placed where – and wherever, you pay for it.
Here is more about what you can promote…which means you buy it too, right? So you know what you’re promoting? The same thing you’re buying! Ewen says:
“The product really works as said and now you can…
Earn 60% Commissions Or Up To $477.00 With Just ONE Affiliate Link!
Here’s a quick summary of the commissions you’ll make with Copy Paste Income:
| Front-end offer $37: Your commissions = $22.20
One-time offer $67: Your commissions = $40.20
Backend offer $197: Your commissions = $118.20
Backend offer $197: Your commissions = $118.20
Backend offer $297: Your commissions = $178.20
Your Total Commissions: $477.00!
It looks like there are upsells, or “additional offers” after your referred buyers spend $37.00.
That is not a lot of money these days and it’s not a big rip-off, but this table above shows that the offer is for your buyer to spend $477.00 – almost 10 times the initial offer!
Is it a scam? Kinda sorta, but not altogether. Because as confusing as the sales page is, someone with time and a few hundred dollars to spend can make something out of this.
But would I recommend it for making money online? No.
Sadly, I remember Ewen Chia from over a decade ago when I was first trying out internet marketing. I bought a couple of his courses and it wasn’t a lot of money.
I didn’t become a success like he did, and why not? It was because every thing he taught and sold centered around a person having, or being able to build, a viable web site from where they could sell or promote products.
And he didn’t teach that.
And he’s still not teaching that. He’s selling a “secret” hidden somewhere in his sales page. Kidding me? I have to figure that out and buy something?
Where does a person learn to develop “a viable web site from where they could sell or promote products.”?
Who IS teaching that?
For no money upfront, I can direct you where to start learning how to build a business designed web site, and where you will build one and see it published online before your eyes!
(There will be almost no “Copy And Paste” – except for legally required pages which are available to copy and paste on this site, inserting your site’s name where needed. Easy – peasy! )
Ewen Chia offers a few promotional banners which are images linked to your affiliate link (for his Copy And Paste product) via which you can be paid commissions if people join up for $37.00, (and further upsells) not being as baffled as I am by the “secret” in the sales page that is going to make me money.
