A rather pathetic product is in the works, Easy Money Machines by Tim Atkinson. The launching of this site March 17th, 2014. My findings: Avoid!
Easy Money Machines, Product Overview
“Anyone who gets their hands on this system will simply get rich overnight.”
Is that so? Let’s take a look at the promotion for this product.
Easy Money Machines is a low-ticket product which promises vast wealth with software that creates squeeze pages via templates provided and it also has a means to create and place facebook ads and/or fan pages. The owner was purportedly a school teacher having been made “filthy” rich overnight by a product one of his students had. This student got hacked and locked out of his software and he supposedly called upon this teacher to re-gain control of the software and then improved it himself by hiring a team of the “best” programmers out there and investing megabucks into it to make it to run efficiently and without effort on the part of the customer who has purchased this. They supposedly closed the deal with a 50/50 split in profits.
Let’s Get Though the Hype…
Here’s an array of images from the sales video showing some of the content in it. Note the flaunting of wealth throughout the images. This is the theme throughout the the sales video. We can see this in the cars, mansions, golf course, etc. Other than appeals to emotion, none of this has any substance at all. So, let’s eliminate it.
Also note that these images include screenshots of account statements – all of which can be forged and is done all the time. If a product is good enough, there is no real need to be showing statements like this. There is so much fakery in this going on that stuff like this should be discounted. Let’s eliminate it.
Finally, let’s look at the headline on the top of the video that I’ve included in every screen shot.
“Free Download: 10 Easy Money Machines. Each Money Machine Makes Me $1,000 – $2,500 A Day. 1 Download Left In Tampa”
This defies logic. Here’s a free download that will generate up to $25,000 per day! Oh, just like other formats like this in other products, some of which were already covered on this website, there’s anywhere between 1 and 3 downloads available to the Tampa Area where I live. Well, if this is what’s left (nonsense!) then someone already has it three days ago when I first came upon this product. It’s still there, so either they’re only allowing one download per city or this is a bunch of crock.
I would not take this headline seriously.
Here’s the Players in This Production…
Here’s the line-up of characters featured in this promotion. All of these are from the video and I have not yet cross-checked them with cached images on Google. From prior experience with a product very similar to this one, testimonials are not always people actually trying out the software.
Rather, these are folks with Fiverr.com-type accounts performing $5 gigs for these. I will include a couple in a video above to give you an idea what the nature of testimonials these are comprised.
Note: Pardon the choppiness of the video. It needs to be re-uploaded.
Watch for acting throughout this excerpted sales video and note the emotions. You can tell what’s real and acting most of the time if it is brought to your attention. There is actually a statement found under the sign-up form that indicates at least some of these are gigs, not actual testimonials. I have not found this in the main body of disclaimers, TOS, Privacy, etc documents, but doesn’t mean it’s not there as I have not thoroughly been through these:
One other note worth mentioning…
The disclaimer being used on the Easy Money Machines website was copied from the CommissionConspiracy (dot) com campaign. Nobody (as yet) has bothered to change all these references to that of EasyMoneyMachines (dot) com. It’s either an oversight or simply has not yet been done being, as yet, prelaunch.
What’s This Product All About?
In theory, this product will work, but is hardly what the promoters have it cracked up to be. Please check this product, which is now released, and read the comments in it. You will see this outfit in action and how others have been burned by it. This product may not be exactly the same, but all indications, this product is no better.
You will be provided an alleged turnkey product (a piece of software) which allows you to create squeeze pages which will integrate with Aweber and other autoresponders and also ads on FaceBook as well as fan pages) which this software generates automatically for you. Everything I’m seeing about this product is too much like the other featured product. For all the bells & whistles, the pomp and all the hype about unimaginable wealth-getting that would come with this product, for the incredible expenses and trouble this alleged school teacher wrested from one of his students, and if it were my product, I would not sell it for a mere $49 a pop…let alone give it away because it has been turned down by the prospect.
There’s more to come…
The Good & the Bad
- You can create squeeze pages with it.
- Offers about 20 minutes of training videos.
- Can create Facebook ads and fan pages.
- Full of hype, fantastic numbers and claims.
- This is a ClickSure-processed promotion. More about ClickSure right here.
- Flaunting of wealth.
- Use of actors in at least some of the testimonials (and probably all of them.)
- You can tell by watching these folks that they are actors.
- Even the Disclaimer indicates that at least some of these are actors.
- Resorts to excessive use of income statements which can easily be forged.
- Prelaunch contains testimonials obviously contradicting the fact that this is a NEW product!
- Uses a roll-model (school teacher) image to help close sales.
- Upsells on the software itself for those who purchase.
Who Is This Program For?
The producers and promoters of this product are most likely targeting audiences that have less than stellar knowledge about the Internet and online marketing. Most people who know what they are doing in an online business will pass this offer by.
To be more accurate, this program is for opportunity-seekers who are unwary of these kind of shiny objects and indeed, many, many will fall for this.
Tools & Training
On the software, there are a few pointers about three different snags most new people encounter when “entering this industry.” There is about 20 minutes of video-based training on the three points and on how to set up the software for use.
The software itself is the tool. What it does has already been discussed briefly.
There have evidently been reports that their support system has responded promptly. One such instance is over a download link that was missing within the software. The program appears to be available now even before the official launch.
Here is the email address for support: email@example.com
The summaries above and below cover pretty much everything about the pricing. Here it is in detail. Just the way the downselling for this product is set up is just one good reason why you should walk away from this program and let some of those suckers Barnum Bailey spoke about being born every minute take this bait.
Here’s the levels of pricing:
- $497. Well, they have to start somewhere, so this one-time price point is shown at the very top and strike-lined out. The Deal of the Day is:
- $49. For the thousands of dollars and the many top programmers used (as stated in the video) you are getting a steal by purchasing now – or are you? What happens when you turn down this offer?
- $29. That’s right, you get HALF-OFF! Still not convinced? At this point, Mr. Atkinson unveils the fact that there will be a drawing to see who wins the Lamborghini he’s driving around in during the video.
- $19. Okay, here’s the second downsell. But they want you HOOKED! You will see why below…
- $9. Money must not be much of an object here – at least not evident yet…Turn this down again?
- $0! Yep! Finally a page comes up, “Here, Take it! It’s free!”
Well, not all good things are free, and sadly, stuff like this puts a bad name on companies and individuals that really have value for free! They’re out there, but you do have to look pretty hard. I will leave the rest for the next section…
My Final Opinion
Sadly, many people will get hooked with this one! Like the last product similar to this I had reviewed, several comments appeared from folks who came to the realization that they DID get burned! Don’t let this happen to you.
Here’s the rest of my story about this company:
I went for it. I wanted to see what would happen next.
My first experience with my spoils – Slam-dunked into another offer: “Exclusive Invite to Pureleverage (dot) com” was the next page that appeared. I went and checked my chosen email account for this product. I did get an email. Here’s the scoop on that…
Note the address at the bottom of the email. I looked this place up.
1060 Brickell Ave., Miami, FL 33131, United States This address is a condominium tower with two small shops on the bottom floor, one of which is a Ciao Piada franchise (a small Italian restaurant.) The other, from the outside, looks like a flower and gift shop. The address is common to the entire building except the two small shops on the first floor.
One more thing about this email…
Michael Fox’s first name appears in the return address as “michael@…” This character is known to be fictitious.
Well, I’ve had enough from this product. to get an email like this is pretty creepy and I think I will preserve my junk email account (which is now getting solicitation emails from this outfit) by leaving the link alone and even deleting the email. This concludes the preliminary Easy Money Machines Review.
At a Glance…
Name: Easy Money Machines
$497 $49 $29 $19 $9 $0
Owners: Tim Atkinson
Overall Rank: 5 out of 100
I would like to give this a “SCAM” notice, but since I did not follow the link in the email, I will go ahead and give this an “Avoid!” even though there’s enough in here already to lay this out as an all-out scam.
My Top Recommendation
I am a proud member of Wealthy Affiliate – an online business training program. I am a strong adherent to using one’s time to self-education. Wealthy Affiliate is strictly a training program and not a business opportunity in itself. Wealthy Affiliate has an outstanding affiliate program. Wealthy Affiliate teaches affiliate and associate marketing.
Why do I spotlight Wealthy Affiliate?
I am, or have been a member of other training programs and none of them can turn out the kind of results members enjoy at Wealthy Affiliate. Learning about building campaigns, websites, delving in profitable niches, socialization, social media, traffic, and publishing, depending on the campaign, can, and does produce real income, if mastered. There is not a single training program for online business anywhere that is as complete as WA.
What I also enjoy about Wealthy Affiliate is the encouragement to socialize and build networks. The teaching approach to interacting with groups is healthy. It builds reputation and long-term relationships. There is not another writing platform like Wealthy Affiliate that exists anywhere.
