    I suppose you could publish your login details so people could check for themselves, but there are obvious reasons not to do that.

    You could hire a 'name' accounting firm to post an audit, but again, lot$ of reason$ not to do that.

    You may have to accept that fakers have turned a lot of people into cynics and skeptics. If you are transparent in other things you do, the people who matter will believe you.

    There are people online, even in this forum, who I wouldn't believe if they told me the sun rose in the east without my own clock, window and compass.

    Anything happen recently that made you ask this question?

    Dishonest people closed that door a long time ago.

    Besides, to suggest that if you can make a certain amount online then others can do the same is certainly a warn out and meaningless promise.

    It's fine to state the success you have had if you feel that's important. But to be honest, many people in this day and age are highly skeptical and their BS meter goes off when sellers make income claims that seem "too good to be true."

    Focus on the things that will help others to trust you . . . not on income claims that make prospects distrust you.

    All the best,

    Steve

    Rent a fancy car, park it in the driveway of a mansion, hire a model to pose with you...

    Oh wait....that's already been done.

    Nevermind.

    There is no way to accomplish this. Anything can be faked, including the report by any accounting firm, even that famous one, Dewey - Cheatum - and Howe.

    Hi Max,

    This is my strategy; I don't do income earnings, so this way, when folks come to my site, I know they are not:

    - skeptics
    - lazy
    - desperate
    - greedy

    Then, these folks buy into what I am doing, based on the help/assistance/service I offer through my content alone, and these folks say "Hey, thanks for helping me for free." and buy my stuff or hire me, and I travel all over the globe as a pro blogger with my open-minded, supportive, loving tribe in my corner.

    Totally get if you run a make money online blog though why'd you do claims.

    My question: do you trust yourself? Meaning, do you have clarity in the value you offer to your audience?

    If you trust yourself, you attract people who trust you.

    If you don't trust yourself, you attract people who doubt you, or, you fear people will doubt you.

    Be more authentic with your business, and your message, and you will be clearer on your business, and your earnings, which will simply align you with folks who agree, who buy in and who help build your business.

    Ryan

      Well, I guess that the possibility that one out of four of those might be true is better than nothing. While it is OK to presume that your visitors meet that criteria, there is, of course, no way of knowing that for a fact. Absolutely, none. Right?

      Thank you.

    I know those guys. They're famous for keeping three sets of books. One for the IRS, one for the ex's lawyers and the real ones. For an extra fee, they'll add a fourth for income reports for affiliates promoting MMO products.

    They say that DCH was hiring a new accountant, and called three finalists in for interviews. They asked each candidate the same question: what is 1 and 1?

    Candidate 1 said "2" and was told they would call him.

    Candidate 2 said "11" and was told they would call him.

    Candidate 3 asked "what do you want it to be?" and was told "you're hired."

    If you chuckled at that old chestnut, you're part of the reason "proving" affiliate earnings beyond doubt is pretty much impossible.

    Here's mine for just two weeks earlier this year:


    Oh...that's right, I haven't promoted a CB product in like four years.

    Just a little trick I learned from DC&H.

    I honestly don't think there is a sure fire way. We all know screenshots and all of that can be faked. Regardless of what you do, some people will still question it.

    So just make a quick video of your logging into your account and sharing your earnings.

    Maybe you can split the video with different timings. Like 10 AM then 2PM , then 8PM etc

      Sorry - very easily faked. Only takes a bit more skill than average. Happy to demonstrate my million dollar account, where I don't even have an account. I can even spoof brower UR"s all day long.

      I think I might have missed my calling in life.

      Thank you/
