Can you believe this gem didn’t even come into my inbox? I stumbled on this program when I was doing research for EZ Money Team Review. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to check it out! So, let’s see…what is Plug In Profit Site? Can we actually get a money-making site for free? Or is Plug In Profit Site a scam? We’re going to find out all this good stuff in just a minute!
First, in case this goes bad (and it probably will!), I want to talk you about my favorite way to make a living online. It’s affiliate marketing, and what this whole website is about. Now, there’s the wrong way to do it, and the right way. I highly recommend you learn the right way to do it for long-term success!
Let me take you through the whole process in my Free Guide to Making Money Online for Beginners. This will show you how it all works and why it’s so freaking awesome!
Here are the areas we’ll explore in this Plug-In Profit Site review.
Product: Plug-In Profit Site
Cost: FREE! Weeeelllll, sort of…
Owner(s): Stone Evens (Wow! A real person for once!)
There is a sales video, and I can’t wait to dive into that. But first I just wanted to show you a bit of the sales page so you can see what we’re dealing with here.
Whew-whee that’s some hype there! But OK. I mean, I guess you need some hype to make people pay attention. Let’s dig into the video and see if this system is really good or just ALL hype.
Right away the video jumps into some sales claims.
$310 in 72 hours? Hmmm….
Here’s what else I learned from watching the video:
Stone’s story: He was working at a sandwich shop trying to provide for his family. He felt guilty for not providing for his family and he couldn’t sleep! He picked up a book.
Nothing in the book sounded great – except for making money from the internet. He loved the idea of laying in his bed while making money. (I always think this is funny. I hate working in my bed! But maybe I’m just weird. Actually, I KNOW I’m weird. lol) He explored ways to make money online. He went into debt trying at all these crappy products. He started making progress with affiliate marketing and started to get some commission checks.
By his 3rd year online he had made over $100,000 in a year! (OK, at least this is a reasonable amount of time and not some insane claim.) He was finally free!
He’s offering his site to us for free because he wants to gain our trust. If we don’t trust him, we won’t take advantage of his offer and we’ll both lose.
This website promotes 5 programs that Stone really believes in. He’s an affiliate for each of them. So if someone buys those programs from his site, he make a commission. Each program pays out residual commissions. In other words, they pay again and again.
Stone decided to make a website to give away to others that promotes the same 5 products that made him a millionaire.
Here’s how it works:
This option takes all the hard work and frustration off our plates and puts it onto Stone’s!
OK, I think we’ve seen enough here. This sounds really good, right? A free system that can make us money pretty quickly!
Or is it…?
Stone kind of says it during the sales presentation. He’s going to create a copycat website with 5 different affiliate offers. You sign up for those sites, and then you promote them.
When people sign up from YOUR site, you make a commission. It sounds like these sites also have multi-level commissions, so Stone gets even more money (and you will too if the person under you sells these products from THEIR site.)
Here are the 5 websites you’ll be asked to join and promote:
Oh, I have a pretty good idea why he’s not charging for this. Have you figured it out yet?
I don’t think Plug-In Profit Site is a scam exactly, but there are definitely things you need to be aware of here. I would absolutely not recommend this program. This is going to be a bad, bad idea and you’ll likely lose your shirt on this one. (And I know you need your shirt!)
Stone says this is absolutely “FREE” and his wife doesn’t understand why he’s not charging for this. Sure, his website that he’s giving you is “free”, but then he’s asking you to sign up to those 5 programs. (He does say you don’t need to sign up for all of them, but he does recommend that you do.)
Each of those sites is going to charge you a monthly membership fee. I’m just doing a quick search now to see how much each one will cost you. There may be more hidden fees, but this is what I’m seeing:
As you can see, these are going to add up. Not only that, at least a couple of these have complaints with the Better Business Bureau.
Here are a couple for Traffic Authority:
What’s worse is the website that you’ll be getting for “free” is teerrrrriiiibbbble. Stone has a video on YouTube that goes through this program a little bit. It’s 4 years old and some of it has changed, but you see from this screenshot what the website looks like.
Do you see that? Would you EVER click on a site that looks like this? It’s full of junk and looks spammy. Also, because it’s the same site that everyone else gets, it will be considered duplicate content by Google, which means they’ll never rank it.
If Google and the other search engines don’t rank it, it won’t get traffic. How are you going to get traffic to this crappy-looking site? You’ll likely have to pay for it. Then you’re out even MORE money. (There goes your shirt again!)
Nope, I don’t like this one AT ALL.
By the way, here’s the YouTube video if you feel the need to watch the whole thing. Good luck to ya!
What Stone uses with his system is affiliate marketing (with a touch of multi-level marketing mixed in). And affiliate marketing DOES rock. It’s what I use to make an income online myself. It’s what this entire website is all about.
The thing is, I’m trying to teach people on this site not to use shortcuts. I run across these types of done-for-you systems all the time. You can see plenty of them in my Not Recommended section. I feel the same way about all of them. They’re not worth it!
Yes, I get it. It seems easy to just have a website that’s already done and ready to go.
Instead of trying to take shortcuts, why not learn how to create a really great affiliate marketing website that YOU own that can’t be taken from you?
I have to recommend training here because learning how to set everything up the right way is what’s going to make or break you in affiliate marketing. I learned everything I know from Wealthy Affiliate.
