If you have been searching around for opportunities to make money online, you might have heard of the name John Chow.
John Chow is no stranger in the world of internet marketing and has carved out a following for himself with his prominent success of turning his website from zero to a monthly income of $40,000 in two years. No matter how you look at it, that’s an amazing feat.
BEFORE YOU READ ON FURTHER: There is an update that MOBE which is the affiliate program John Chow is promoting has been shut down by FTC for its fraudulent business education program. More official details can be found at FTC website.
So, what’s this Blogging with John Chow?
First of all, who is John Chow?
Now that you know the man, let’s look at what John does to make money online.
John Chow has a website where he teaches people how to make money through blogging.
The concept of blogging to earn an income is not new and John differentiates with his unique style of presentation. I actually find his style friendly and not sliamy (ok, I was trying to say slimy + scam-y together!).
More importantly, the results speak for themselves.
If you are searching for a way to make money online, the last thing you need is a polished marketing speech. I mean, you can be polished but the key is still results.
What I Like 🙂
The website comes filled with testimonials of his achievements, including videos of people he has helped with his program.
I like that, it’s genuine and gives aspiring internet marketers a glimpse of what’s possible.
John is also transparent with his income. How much he makes, what are his income sources etc. They are all revealed on his website. I am wary of scams and so should anyone who is thinking of investing time and money in an online business. But what John did with his income disclosure is, I feel a step in the right direction. At least, we know this guy is for real.
What I am WARY of 🙁
The mention of MOBE had me hesitate for a while. In another earlier review I did for MOBE, I didn’t give it a strong rating.
Now, please don’t think I am here to diss MOBE because I would be frank, I haven’t spent a single dime on them. There is no reason for me to give them a bad review based on hear-say.
Also, if you Google, you find that there are some successful internet marketers making their millions from MOBE.Somewhere and somehow, things are working out for these guys and all I can say is that it always involves hardwork regardless we see it or not. There is just NO EASY MONEY.
The challenge with MOBE is that it has incredible (highly expensive!!!) upsells after the initial reasonably priced front-end offer.
MTTB (My Top Tier Business) is that front-end offer I am talking about and John is promoting it as the go-to tool for making money online effectively! At $49 one time, it gives you access to their 21 Step System before the upsell comes in at a hefty price tag of $1997! The upsell is necessary if you want to sell the high-end products in MOBE. Just in case you are confused here, MOBE is an affiliate marketplace similar to JVZoo, ClickBank EXCEPT they only sell their in-house products which are highly priced.
** Final Verdict UPDATED**
The paragraph below in italics was written many months prior to FTC shutdown of MOBE. In view of what has happened recently, MOBE is no more than a scam. The founder is currently under lawsuit and what we can learn is to be very careful with such high ticket affiliate programs that cost thousands to invest and promises of quick money.
“Blogging with John Chow is basically a website created to channel people to the MOBE system. There are many people doing it and some like John are very successful and so you can’t really question the validity of his approach.
The question rather would be…is this for you since you are already aware of the upcoming upsell?
I recommend you visit John’s website and see if it is comfortable with you.
I leave you a video by a MOBE Marketer who just made over $35K in 3 months using their 21-Step-System + upsell. Whether everyone turns out to be like Christian is always debatable.
I don’t like to lose my hard-earned money in unsuccessful ventures and I’m sure that is the same for you. But the greatest loss is not money but time.”
