Product: The Easy Internet Plan
Price: $27 upfront / $14 per month
Despite the sales video re-enforcing how different this is from all the other guru scams, it’s nothing more than an anonymous guru pushing hype. This will definitely not siphon money into your bank account or teach you anything worthwhile. I'll show you what it's all about below.
What Is The Easy Internet Plan?
This program gives you several brief videos about promoting the most popular ‘make money online’ products within the ClickBank marketplace. This is nothing new. The concept of earning commissions by promoting other people’s products is known as affiliate marketing and (in itself) is a legitimate business model. It is the program itself I have an issue with.
The 3 key issues with this program are:
- Promoting popular but low quality ‘biz op’ products will ruin your reputation and is not a good way to get started online
- The training is very thin and won’t even show you how to do that properly
- It will cost WAY more than you are led to believe given the methods you are being shown
- You will be relying on paid traffic to send people to your affiliate offers which is a bad way to go as a beginner
Can This Be Trusted?
The owner of the product is apparently named ‘Dave Roberts’. I was unable to find any information about this guy online which may indicate he is using an alias. This is very common because if gurus like this used a real name they wouldn’t make any sales since the last 20 products they promoted were of the same low standard.
Instead of explaining how the system works or what this actually is, the sales video claims that ‘with the click of a button’ you’ll be ‘siphoning money into your bank account’ in no time.
In the same breath, they claim this is completely different to any other program online. After watching the video it sure as heck doesn’t sound that way to me but apparently Dave is totally legit because he:
- Showed income proof
- Isn’t flashing pictures of yachts, sports cars and mansions
- Provided proof of his ‘clients’
The income proof is nothing more than a generic ClickBank screenshot proving absolutely nothing, there are hundreds of these pictures floating around and they are very easy to fake. Anyone can copy and paste one of these into a video in a matter of seconds.
A quick Google search reveals just how easy it is to get one of these pictures and paste it into a sales video.
The testimonials are almost certainly stock photos and cannot be verified either which is another verycommon trick used among these kinds of programs. Does not showing you pictures of yachts, super cars and mansions make him or his program legit? No. It doesn’t make him a scam artist and it doesn’t make him legitimate either. This is nothing more than the marketing angle he is using. There is plenty of hype within the sales video already so not showing those things simply makes the whole thing more believable.
When you also look at the fake association with popular and trusted brands under the video it only serves as another red flag.
I guarantee you this program has ZERO endorsement with any of the above companies and has certainly not been featured on them. This is another tick to gain your trust and it’s not real.
Inside The Program
If you click away from the order screen you will see the price continue dropping all the way down to $7 to trap you in. I didn’t buy this because I found the training on YouTube for free though and I’m glad I did. I would have been asking for a refund almost immediately!
Step 1: Short video explaining how to choose a generic squeeze page. This is a webpage designed to capture a persons email address so can market to them.
Step 2: Sign up to an autoresponder and copy your campaign code into a word document
Step 3: Sign up to ClickBank, pick the most popular product and copy your affiliate link into the word document.
At this point you are supposed to send the details you’ve noted down on the word document to their ‘tech team’ who is going to link up your squeeze page with your autoresponder and affiliate links for you. I was unable to view the videos in step 4 or 5 but they are likely just more of the same stuff, brief videos that explain absolutely nothing about making money online.
What you get:
- Generic information you could find for free
- Bunch of scammy looking ‘biz op’ style squeeze pages to promote similar programs to this
- Link to join an autoresponder that you could join yourself directly
- Quick demo on joining ClickBank
The remaining tabs are just upsells for addittional programs ‘Dave’ is affiliated with that you’ll need to buy in order make this system work. If you are new to affiliate marketing you will have absolutely no clue what to do since nothing is explained properly. The sales video said you could just sign up and ‘click a few buttons’ and that anyone can do this. In reality, there is no worthwhile training so most people are going to be totally lost about what to do next.
Sneaky Extra Charges
I had a quick look through the terms page and found something very sneaky, an addittional monthly charge of $14.95 for “Your Club Membership which I am assuming is just the members area. This is not mentioned in the sales video or on the order screen!
Old Scam, New Name?
I clicked on the contact page and found the support email is associated with ‘Easy Marketers Club’ which is located at: http://theeasymarketersclub.biz. This is a very similar website with the only difference being it is now defunct, so it may be the old version to this program.
Changing names and URL’s is a very common strategy among sketchy programs because once a few honest reviews are written they start losing business and in some cases, once certain 3 letter agencies catch up with them they are forced to shut the sites down.
The Reality Of Programs Like This
Unfortunately, gurus like this target beginners and prey on their lack of knowledge on how making money on the Internet works. It all sounds super convincing until after you pay the money and follow the steps you are provided.
You then realise it’s going to cost you WAY more to make anything work and the training is so thin you’ll have no choice but to find another program to help you figure things out.
At this point the scam cycle continues with the purchase of many more programs, and that’s if you haven’t quit already. The end result is you being frustrated, making no money and out of pocket. I know this because I’ve been there, it sucks!
What can you do? Stop listening to anyone telling you that making money online is easy, even if they claim they are not guru. It is possible to earn an income online but it won’t happen overnight and it won’t happen by purchasing crap like this.
What I Liked
- You may be able to obtain a refund through ClickBetter
What I Didn’t Like
- Claiming to be different from other gurus when this is simply untrue
- Deceptive marketing hype amount ‘siphoning money into your bank account’
- Thin training showing an age old business model- promote CB products through email marketing
- Sneaky monthly charges you are not even made aware of
- Will not help people make money online
The concept of making money by promoting affiliate products is legitimate in itself. Unfortunately, this program does not teach you anything about building a legitimate or profitable business with this business model. In fact, the training is so thin I wouldn’t even call it training.
To make this work means learning email marketing, paid traffic strategies and many other related topics, none of which are explained to you. It will also require a lot of extra purchasing for the essential tools to make it work. The bottom line is this is purely designed to get your money into their pockets, nothing more. I do not recommend this.
