Wealthy Affiliate or MOBE?

18 replies
I have a really good friend who works a desk job for 80 plus hours a week.

He is barely making ends meet and asked me if I knew of an easy way
to send some traffic to an offer that won't take him a ton of time... something
he can do while sitting at his desk, on the job.

I'm not that familiar with what's out there these days, in terms of easier
programs to get started in.

I found Wealthy Affiliate and MOBE from doing a fast Google search.

Does anyone have experience with these 2 and could compare the 2,
and which would be easier for someone who has a lot of time to work
on driving traffic... but he doesn't want to do a ton of product creation.

Which of those programs do you feel is easier for a newbie to start and make
some cash with?

Thanks!

    Wealthy affiliate can be started for free. YOu can get a free wordpress site, domain and hosting and tons of training all for free and get an actual website up. If you are successful and want to do more than you can pay for more items.

    I cannot speak about MOBE as I haven't done it because it looks to be very expensive. Do your research. Check out both and let him know what you found so he can check for himself.

    I haven't tried wealthy affiliate but I read a lot of reviews about guys making money but from my experience Google Sniper seems to be one of the most talked about affiliate programs as it is the only affiliate program that makes me money on autopilot.

    I have never seen an online offer that was easy and cheap. You can make money with Wealthy Affiliate, but it will take some time, likely months, to make real money. His other option if he has a website is to use paid advertising, which might give fast results, but he will have to pay for it.
    MOBE from what I understand is really expensive, and it also takes at least month to get through, and even then there is no guarantee that he will make a lot of money.
    Google Sniper uses tactics that have gotten people's accounts banned from advertising on Bing, and I have never seen anything on "autopilot". You still have to go out and promote, which is done with any other product anyway.

    I only know of one easy way to make money online, but it is expensive to start for many people if you dont have anyone under you. Unless there is product I don't know about he will have to put in some work. If someone promises you easy money with that is free then run the other way.

      What are your results after implementing CPA Income Boss?

      Being straight to the point with no fluff is one thing, but is creating the $20/day campaigns they state realistically achievable?

      If you read the case study by Carl Radley, he only earned $1.55 in profit from spending $150 on traffic. That was after optimization though because he talked about optimizing his campaign at the end of part 1 of his case study.

        These two programs are not equivalent. I think of Wealthy Affiliate more in terms of a beginners guide to marketing and making commissions whereas MOBE is definitely a more advanced form with high end/high commission sales.

        If anything someone wanting to start out should go no farther than Wealthy Affiliate, because the system in MOBE might be too advanced for too higher of a price too quickly.

        By that i mean you're literally paying $500 - $5000 for the MOBE systems, primarily for the license to be able to sell the products you just bought, and this can be pretty over whelming those those people who have just gotten into online marketing.

        Start with something simple and work your way up; make some money with Wealthy Affiliate first then graduate to MOBE if you feel your marketing skill is up to par.

    I have got lots of students that are coming from MOBE, seems like MOBE is trying to extract the most amount of money from you, one of my students paid $10k and got no results, another one paid only $2000, and also got no results. I'd recommend to stick to mentoring programs where you get access to the coach itself, and isn't some type of a mlm where other members get money when you pay money to the system, the guy who paid $10k to mobe simply made the guy who invited him a little richer

    Hi Shawn,

    I'm a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I love the atmosphere, the community spirit, the awesome training... everything.

    MOBE on the other hand is one of the most blatant scams around. The amount of money they extract out of you (or try to) is almost beyond belief.

    MOBE is a total and utter scam. Period.

    I would encourage you to check WA out - NO credit card required! Who else is that confident in their program?

    Take care,
    Nick

      Not mobe for sure, no no... you know that in order to start in mobe you must have tons of $$$$$fat bugz (2K if you want to enter the "mobe business"????) then you will be required to give them $$$9,000 = 9k$$$ and $15K$$$$ making you think you'll get this fat money back with not much effort,..but indeed it is a living hell for more than 95% of the people who fall for this mobe system), you can never be sure when putting your money in a scheme type system, never any guarantees of ROI in "mobe's money sucking machine" ...it really is a money sucking system. They hide so many thingss for the newbie in order to get him/her buying the mobe's self-overrated products.it really is a pity!

      That is why I always recommend never even "try" any scheme type system like this one that longs for your hard earned money in the first place, one red alert is here you must pay to "try" that's how you can test a system's reliability, you must be allowed to try it first before buying it, and this is crucial here because we are talkin about the most expensive Tier Tickets of the Internet...so no Trying mobe - mttb here ??...well then that fishy smell ...you know it.

    • Potential for him to empty your wallet. MOBE is a scam fermanaziz.

      Wealthy Affiliate is Free to join so anyone can try it out. Then if they like it, upgrade to Premium within the first 7 days for $19 first month then $47 a month for all the resources and training? Only other one worth considering is the Chris Farrell membership although web hosting is not included.

      If you live in the United States, I'd steer clear of MOBE, as it's clearly a pyramid scheme, which is illegal under the laws of most states.

      While you're ostensibly earning money by selling information products, you can't earn the big bucks unless you buy licenses that cost four and five figures. Once you buy those expensive licenses, guess how you earn those big bucks? By selling the right to sell licenses.

      No one is making money selling the information products; the money is all in recruiting new members to buy expensive licenses.

      Here's what the Federal Trade Commission says about such programs: "Steer clear of multilevel marketing plans that pay commissions for recruiting new distributors. They're actually illegal pyramid schemes. Why is pyramiding dangerous? Because plans that pay commissions for recruiting new distributors inevitably collapse when no new distributors can be recruited. And when a plan collapses, most people--except perhaps those at the very top of the pyramid--end up empty-handed." The FTC also warns that the practice of getting commissions from recruiting new members is outlawed in most states as "pyramiding".

      I'm sure people are earning money with MOBE, but if you live in the U.S., you're also potentially looking at going to prison should anyone decide to prosecute you.

      Your call.

        I dont know about Wealthy Affiliate but I plan on checking them out after reading the posts in this thread.

        As for MTTB/M0be, I got curious about them after signing up for someones "free" online coaching course and he keeps pushing M0be over and over again.

        Now I know why his course was free. Also it makes me feel as all the other items he mentioned were just to cover up the fact that he was trying to push M0be.

        But I did a Google search after not seeing any helpful information on their site as to what they are and thats when I saw post after post about how its a MLM scam.

        Here is a good thorough article on M0be:

    I have used wealthy affiliate, and I thought it was very good! i'd recommend following the guides but setting up the domain and hosting and WP separately, so if you ever close your acc at WA you're sites won't be affected..

      Not hosting at WA does allow you to use CPanel. Otherwise you will have to use Filezilla for FTP functions. As for leaving WA as long as you back your site up to Dropbox using any number of plugins your site will always be with you. That allows you to leave, and keep your site, which I recommend you having control of your site in that manner, no matter where it is hosted in case something happens to the host's servers.

    Avoid Mobe, It is not worth the investment.

    The job assigned to coaches is to extract more money from your pocket.

    After $49, it is $2000, then $5000, then $9000, It doesn't stop.

    Even after investing such amount, you cannot promote it and make a profit easily unless you have thousands of $$$$ for promotion.

    It's conversion rate is very low.

    It is not a scam, but not a good income opportunity for newbies.

    Be carefull with Mobe as it floods affiliates with offers to buy, you might end up spending $5000+ without earning your money back. The people behind this are making huge money especially because of their affiliates and their buying behaviors.

    Just my 2 cents.
