That's a question I will help you answer in the article below. I don't even know how I became aware of 30 Minute Money Methods, but it was likely through an email.
I have an entire email list set up for make money products so that I can see how these products are marketed. Looking at the type of email you get is one clue about how high quality a product is going to be (or not).
This one is interesting because it claims that there are "secret" methods out there that can help you make $500 in just 30 minutes.
But is that really true?
Let's find out.

Also, after going through this whole article, I came to find out the product is no longer available. Let's go through it anyway so you can see what to avoid in the future...)

What is 30 Minute Money Methods?
The quality of this program is very, very low. You get 4 simple PDFs that have a brief overview of each of the "secret" money methods (which are not even close to being a secret). This program is a perfect example of a low-quality "get rich quick" product.
Making money with this would not be easy because you don't learn enough information to actually make it work for you. There's not enough detail in the PDFs to show you how to truly make money with each of the methods.
Relatively speaking, the cost of the front-end product isn't a lot, but it's a lot for what you get. Not only that, but you will be hit with upsells after purchasing. This is typical of these types of products. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's something to be aware of.
Summary: 30 Minute Money Methods claims that you can make $500 in just 30 minutes of work and that members are making upwards of $600,00 a year. This is all a fabrication from what I can tell because the "secret" methods aren't actually secret and there isn't even a real way to make money with this program. There is some training in the member's area, but you're going to discover that it's not worth much.
It is my personal opinion based on my experience with all different kinds of make money products that 30 Minute Money Methods is too low quality to get you very far with making money online. I would not recommend you spend money on this program.
What is 30 Minute Money Methods?
0 Minute Money Methods is a ClickBank make money product by Shelly West (likely a pen name) where you can use "secret methods" to earn $500 in 30 minutes.
The sales video goes on to say that it's easy to make up to $50,000 from the comfort of your own home, and you can even make up to $600,000 this year.
Here's the proof that is being offered, even though this doesn't prove anything because it can be easily faked:
Shelly says that making money with her methods is straightforward and completely legitimate and that you can start making cash today. You don't even need any special equipment or skills.
The video then goes on to give us some testimonials with some outlandish claims. The first one says that he made $475 in the first 30 minutes. I don't think that's possible - with any program. The second testimonial claims to make $45,000 each month with this program. The third guy says he's made over $300,000 in just 8 months.
But unfortunately, they are hired actors, mostly from Fiverr.com. I have seen all of these people in previous reviews that I've done, all claiming to have made money with other programs.
The guy pictured above was in the Easy Retired Millionaire review I did some time ago. You can see a screen shot of him there.
Shelly says that was a young, single mother with no job, college education, money or hope. She tried surveys, but that didn't really pan out. She got into blogging, which she was excited about at first, but she wasn't making money from her blog and had to give it up.
She finally found the secret websites that would change her life forever. She started making money that day. By the end of her first day, she claims to have made over $2,000.
Do you know that saying, "Facts tell, stories tell?" This is a good story, but that's all it is. A story to get you hooked into this product. How can you make $2000 the first time that you do something? This story doesn't add up...
How Does 30 Minute Money Methods Work?
What you get when you pay for 30 Minute Money Methods is a back office with some training. From my research, the training includes 4 PDFs of different money making methods:
- Online Voiceovers
- Stock Photography
- Playing Games Online
These are all legitimate ways you can make money online, but none of these methods will make the kind of money that is being promised in the sales video. And especially if you're new to any of them.
For instance, if you've never done voice overs, how do you expect to get paid big bucks to do it? You need experience so that you know what you're doing.
You would think that the PDFs trainings will help you figure out what you're doing, but think again. Here's a video by Phillip from ipoopcash.com who shows us what's in the membership area of 30 Minute Money Methods and he gives us an idea of what the training PDFs are like.
The Real Purpose of 30 Minute Money Methods
The real purpose of products like 30 Minute Money Methods, and other low quality over-hyped products like this are threefold:
- To get money from you upfront with the cost of the product
- To get you to buy into upsells so that you spend more money
- To get your email address so they can promote even more things to you
A product like this doesn't exist to help YOU make money, it exists only to make the owner money, in my opinion.
Online Reviews / Complaints
I did not find any comments from anyone who use 30 Minute Money Methods. I didn't find any happy customers, or any complainers.
Is 30 Minute Money Methods a Scam or Legit?
I would consider 30 Minute Money Methods a borderline scam. The reason is that you do get some training for your money, but it's so low quality that you will never come close to the amount of payments that the sales page talks about.
Let's talk about the red flags with this program so that you know what to look out for in the future.
1. Huge Income Claims
Any sales program that says you can make such huge amounts of income with no special skills and in only 30 minutes is lying to you. It's not how online marketing works.
2. Fake Testimonials
If a product is a good product and actually works, there's no need to hire actors to do testimonials for you. You will easily be able to find testimonials.
One of the criteria I personally have for promoting a product is that it has to have happy customers. For instance, my top picks to learn affiliate marketing all have happy customers, and it's easy to find them. There's no need to fake it.
3. Unknown Product Owner
Shelly is likely a made up character. Many of the low quality products out there use pen names because they don't want to be known. It's not an outright indicator of a scam, but most creators of high quality products are proud of their product and want to show their face.
4. "Proof" Isn't Proof at All
You can show bank accounts with money it them and fake checks, but that's not any kind of proof at all because it's too easy to fake it. What would constitute real proof is having real, happy customers who say they have been able to make an income from this product. I can't even find one person who's used it.
Also, when you see these pop up, it's likely just a script that runs on the website. It's also not real.
5. Fake Comment Section
This comment section in interesting and something I haven't seen so far with reviews. The problem is that it's also all made up.
it looks real enough, but if you were to try to add a comment yourself, it would have taken you to the sales page. It's a great way to get your email address though so that they can then promote other things to you, even if you don't buy.
It looks like I'm too late on this product anyway. It looks like it's not even being sold anymore.
And I think that's a good thing.
What is 30 Minute Money Methods? Well, it looks like it's a defunct product and is no longer available. This is a good thing because it was too low in quality to get you very far. In fact, it would have been a waste of your time and money.
If you're looking for a get rich quick scheme similar to 30 Minute Money Methods, then I really can't help you because those never work. If you can get your mind to accept that, and if you're willing to put a little time and effort into making a real income online, then the sky will be the limit for you. Here are some affiliate marketing success stories to prove it.
