Welcome to my review of MoolaVine.
I came across this site today via an email I received. The pitch is basically that you can join this free system, and use the “power of cooperation” to start earning a reliable online income.
Sounds good, but does it work and if so, is it legit?
Let’s take a look…
MoolaVine (located at www.moolavine.com) is a new system run by Bryan Winters.
Bryan is a successful internet marketer with years of experience, and someone who’s made millions online. And I’ve come across his work before.
For example, back in 2016 he launched a similar system called Dumb Little System.
DLS works almost exactly the same as MoolaVine, so this could simply be a ‘re-boot’ of the same thing under a new name, to boost interest.
In any case, I’ll walk you through exactly what MoolaVine is about and how it works so you know what to expect.
In short, MoolaVine a ‘free’ system where you join and refer others into the same system. And those people buy products through your affiliate link, which earns you affiliate commissions.
One way or another, you also need to spend money yourself in order to keep your account ‘in the green’ and able to earn.
After looking into this system in detail, I’m confident that you can make money this way. But as I will now explain, there are drawbacks to consider before diving in.
Here’s how the system works in more detail…
How Does MoolaVine Work?
The first step in the system is to join MoolaVine as a free member on the sales page. Which is basically a matter of entering your email and choosing a password.
From here, you’ll go through a series of upsells which, like most people, you’ll probably click through because you through the system was free.
In any case, your account starts off with some free ‘green days’.
What this means is that your account is active and qualified, so you are able to earn money.
But it won’t stay this way..
In order to keep your account in the green, you need to buy products through the person who referred you.
Specifically, you need to select a product through a marketplace like ClickBank, JV Zoo or Amazon for example, and fill out a form within MoolaVine to ‘request’ to buy it.
Your referrer will then get back to you with their unique affiliate link, so that you can buy that product through them, thus earning that person a commission.
At the same time, you earn more green days at the rate of $1 per 1 green day.
So this is how you qualify your account, by purchasing more stuff.
Optionally, you can skip this requirement and simply buy the MoolaVine membership for $30 per month. Which gives you green days for the life of your membership.
And the person who referred you earns a $10 monthly recurring commission on this.
Cool… but how do I make money?
In order to earn money with MoolaVine, you need to recruit as many people as possible into your ‘vine’ (AKA downline).
The more people you refer, the more people potentially buying stuff through your affiliate link and/ or the more people buying the membership. Which means more commissions for you.
With that being said, “recruiting as many people as possible” is easier said than done.
Bryan does give you some ‘traffic packages’ that range in price from $40 to $120 but how good that traffic is, is anyone’s guess. Either way, you will still need to learn how to drive lots of quality traffic to this offer if you want it to become profitable for you.
And I’m not seeing any proper training anywhere within the members area.
So to sum it up… you join, buy stuff, and convince others to do the same. It’s certainly possible to earn money this way, assuming you can get people in the door.
But that doesn’t mean you should rush out and buy into this system because there are definitely drawbacks which I’ll elaborate on now.
Verdict – Is MoolaVine a Scam?
In my opinion, MoolaVine is not a scam. But there is some ‘sketchiness’ surrounding this business model.
And the biggest concern I have is with the option to buy the MoolaVine membership for $30 per month. Because you’re not really buying a product or service, you are simply ‘qualifying yourself’ to earn commissions for recruiting people into your MoolaVine downline (AKA vine).
And then those recruits go out and recruit others who do the same, and so on… multiple levels deep.
This is exactly how pyramid schemes work, which is why the system is less than legit than it could be.
Don’t get me wrong, the main option of buying products through other people’s affiliate links is totally legit. And it’s a unique way to cooperatively earn money in that respect.
But you need to be able to drive a lot of traffic to an offer like this if you want to earn even a modest income. And in my experience, buying a bunch of ClickBank products ain’t gonna cut it.
You need real training, tools and support if you want to become a real affiliate marketer.
I spent years trying to ‘figure it out’ on my own and buy purchasing scammy little ‘push button’ products. Nowadays I earn a full-time income online doing affiliate marketing, so I know how important this is.
Regardless of the offer, you need to learn real skills. And you need to be willing to spend a fair chunk of time working at your business before seeing any exciting results.
MoolaVine is a unique system that allows members to buy products through other members’ affiliate links.
In this way, and through the other facets of the system, it is possible to earn an income promoting this. However, whether or not that means you will get this business into profit comes down to having real internet marketing skills.
Just like ANY other offer, you need to know how to drive traffic.
If you’re going to ‘earn’ that traffic, it takes time and a lot of effort. If you plan on buying traffic (which I don’t recommend) then this is instant, but it could easily cost you a small fortune. With no guarantee of results.
I personally don’t make a habit of recommending programs unless they give you the full box and dice. As in, everything you need to go from newbie to profit, in an ethical and legitimate manner.
What you decide to do is up to you, but I hope this review has been helpful!
The truth is, most people fail to make money online.
Because despite the wealth of opportunity that currently exists, there's too many fake "gurus" selling bunk programs that over promise and under deliver. It's a wild west.
The good news is, it IS possible for the average person to create a successful business online. I know because I've done it myself. Here's how I went from zero to $8K plus per month online.
