I received an email about Inbox Income today. Apparently, it’s a simple system that allows you to bank an easy $500 to $750 per day, just by “sending a few simple little emails”.
These are some pretty wild claims, so I was naturally skeptical.
Nothing is ever that easy, in most cases this is something scam sites say to trick people into buying. But I always like to give these programs the benefit of the doubt, so I took a closer look to see what it was all about.
In this review, I’ll show you what I found to help you decide if it’s worth it or not…
Inbox Income Review
The Inbox Income site (inboxincome.co) consists of a sales video presented by “Steve Allen”. Which to be honest is probably just a pen name like many other ‘make money’ sites.
In any case, Steve claims he went from “juggling bills” to “making the laziest money imaginable”. Using the very same system he is now showing you.
The video starts out with a bunch of testimonials from people who claim to be making amazing money with this system. Which is supposedly proof that his system really does work…
The first guy says that the system changed his life completely. The second guy claims he made over $234,000 since using this system. And the woman in the last image, claims she makes $5k per week, and says she got there in less than a month of using the system.
These are exciting results, but are they real?
Believe it or not, the people in these videos are often just paid actors who provide testimonials for a living. So I always like to verify if these testimonials are actually real or fake.
And it turns out they are fake- all of these people are actors from a site called Fiverr…
Not one single person in these videos actually makes ANY money with Inbox Income System at all. They were all paid by whoever is running this site, to pretend like they are making money.
To me this is extremely misleading and unethical, and it is very common among scam sites.
Considering what I’ve seen to this point (wild claims and fake testimonials), we are not off to a good start. This is looking like every other scam site out there, just packed a little differently.
Anyways, let’s take a closer look at how this system supposedly works…
How Does Inbox Income Work?
The sales video is mostly full of ramblings of how much money you can make and Steve’s rags to riches story. But there is a brief explanation of how the system actually works.
Steve demonstrates how the system works by opening his account within Aweber, typing out a simple email and sending it to his list of less than 400 subscribers. He then shows you how doing just that is making him $100’s per day as a ClickSure affiliate.
Looks simple- but there are SO many things wrong with this it’s not even funny!
First of all, you need an email list if you plan on sending emails or you will have no one to read them. This is where the majority of time and/ or cost comes into play. Depending on how you plan on running traffic to your capture page (the page where you collect emails).
Second of all, if you think you are going to type up a short email like the one he shows (or copy and paste it)- think again. Seriously, email marketing is a skill and it is all about relationship building- not spamming.
The right way to do it, is to provide your email list with VALUE and create a beneficial relationship for BOTH parties.
You provide good actionable value within your emails, and the people you are emailing (yes, they are real people) respect you for that, and stick around long enough to consider buying products you recommend as an affiliate.
Yet, according to Steve, you will just send short SPAM emails to your list. So you can promote scammy “make money” offers from an affiliate network called ClickSure.
This is a good way to make no money at all, get your autoresponder account banned, and ruin your reputation online. That’s about it.
Third of all, Steve shows you sending an email to a list of less than 400 subscribers, and yet somehow he miraculously makes $1,000’s per week doing so. This is absolutely ridiculous.
I earn a full-time income online doing affiliate marketing, and I’ve built some good sized email lists over the years. Which is how I know first hand that you are NOT going to be making that kind of money from such a small number of subscribers.
The ONLY exception to that is if you had a list of buyers that are proven to buy and you promoted a high ticket offer. But you’d only develop a list like this after going through lots of non-buyers first. Because only a small percentage of people actually buy what you are offering- that is just the way it works.
In any case, the example Steve provides of how the system works is complete BS.
Most people who watch the video wouldn’t know this though, because this site is clearly targeting newbies. People who are just getting started and simply do not know any better. This is extremely misleading in my opinion.
Is Inbox Income a Scam?
I believe Inbox Income is a scam, and here’s exactly why I say this…
- The site uses extreme hype and massively exaggerated income claims
- The testimonials are 100% fake, they are literally from people who have never used the system
- According to Steve’s own example, the system does not teach you how to build a real business
I’ve reviewed hundreds of systems on this site, so I know when something is complete and utter BS. Which is why there is no way I am throwing $49 away to give to these people to make them more money.
It is possible there is some form of generic training within the members area. Most scam sites do provide this to reduce the refund rate, so I guess in that sense it may not be a complete scam.
However, there’s not a snowflakes chance in hell you are going to plug into a system, work less than half an hour per day, and start making $500 to $750 per day.
This is absolute nonsense- plain and simple.
The only person making that kind of money with this “system” is the person who put this sales funnel together. Making money off of unsuspecting people who are just trying to get started online.
Inbox Income is a site that claims to help you make hundreds of dollars per day “sending a few simple emails”. In reality, it is the same as all of the other sites promising this sort of thing that don’t deliver.
You can make money sending emails but it is absolutely NOT that simple. Like any business, it takes time and effort if you want to get results. It certainly won’t happen by joining a system like this. These systems exist to make the people running them rich, at your expense.
What you decide to do is up to you, but I won’t be recommending this to you.
Did you know that most people fail to make money online?
Despite the wealth of opportunity that exists online right now, there's also lots of fake "gurus" selling bunk programs that over promise and under deliver. It's a wild west!
The good news is... it IS possible for ordinary people to create success online. I know, because I've done it myself. Here's how I went from zero to $8K plus per month online.
