🥇Clickbank University 2.0 Review

clickbank university review

Don’t waste your time reading any other Clickbank University review - just read this one. You will understand why… 

This is the stuff no one else will tell you.

My goal is to make you a more informed buyer so you can make the right decision for you at this time in your life.

I will even recommend alternatives to Clickbank University (aka CBU) - even one that I don’t particularly care for, so that you know you have options.

So, let me get down to the good, bad and the ugly...

Clickbank University - Is It Worth It?

So, what is Clickbank University? It is an affiliate training program that is part of Clickbank - an online retailer that sells both digital and physical products.

Clickbank University (CBU) will train you to be a successful Clickbank affiliate. The pros of going through the training is that you are taught by top Clickbank affiliates who have done millions in sales such as Robby Blanchard and Justin Atlan.  

Robby has his own Clickbank training course called Commission Hero, which focuses on using Facebook ads to drive traffic. You will need to be able to spend at least $20 daily on ads in order to make it work. Although a good course, this kind of ad spend is out of reach for a lot of newbie marketers, so it's not a course focused on here. 

In fact, here is a video with Robby talking about his success as Clickbank's #1 affiliate....

The Cost

As of this writing the cost of the training is $47/mo. Now when Clickbank University came out the first time, if memory serves me correct, the price back then was somewhere in the neighborhood of $99/mo. So, the cost has been reduced to less than half of what it used to be - which makes it a more affordable option for a lot more people.

What Do You Get

 * Funnel builder (extra charge)
 * Live Q & A
 * Pro Courses - Where you learn from top industry leaders every month
 * Expert interviews
 * Copywriting guide
 * Understanding Facebook Ads
 * Forum (currently in the process of being revamped)

So, you do get a lot of bang for your buck.

The training is broken down into bite-sized lessons to make it easier to learn and so that you’re not feeling overwhelmed with all this information coming at ya.

Clickbank is one of the world’s biggest online retailers and definitely the largest digital marketplace on the Internet. The opportunity to make a substantial income with Clickbank exists and it only makes sense to join its training program.

So, how does Clickbank University compare to other programs? Read on...

Clickbank University vs Wealthy Affiliate

clickbank university vs wealthy affiliate

If you know anything about me, you know that I’m not a huge fan of the tactics that some affiliates of Wealthy Affiliate engage in - up to and including lying, purposely giving out misinformation on competing products/services in order to make Wealthy Affiliate the “winner” in every kind of comparison. Imagine that!

However, Wealthy Affiliate does provide some decent training.

Wealthy Affiliate Cost

​The cost of this program is $49/mo - so it’s comparable to Clickbank University in terms of price range. However, there is a free membership that gives you just 10 marketing lessons. The training is broken down to individual lessons/courses i.e. Picking a Niche etc..

What Do You Get

Wealthy Affiliate has weekly live interactive classes in addition, they have classes from e-commerce to drop shipping, to lead generation and all else in between. The vast majority of classes obviously are at the upgraded membership level - not the free one.

So there is a lot of training going on at the $49 level and it covers more than just affiliate marketing. However, this could be both a blessing and curse. When you have too many options, it makes choosing ONE that much more difficult.


Who Wins Clickbank University or Wealthy Affiliate?

clickbank university review 2.0

Let me just put this out there…

Most hopeful people who try their hand at affiliate marketing don’t succeed - they make no money at all. The same can be said about e-commerce, drop-shipping, etc..

There are many reasons for this - one of which is that you’re pretty much alone as you try to build your business. In other words, you have no one to root you on or bounce ideas off of.

This is why now you see a lot of affiliate programs including forums and Facebook groups in their programs. With that said, in my opinion, this is something to consider when looking at a training program.

Communities Make the Difference

Both Wealthy Affiliate and Clickbank University have communities. Clickbank is currently revamping their forum, however, they do have weekly live Q & A sessions.

Wealthy Affiliate has its entire training site community-focused. The downside is that people can get more wrapped up in the conversations going on more than on the training. If you’re a person that is easily distracted, then you may want to look at other options other than Wealthy Affiliate.

Clickbank University has its teachings focused on one thing - making you a better Clickbank affiliate. Because it’s more focused training, your odds of success may be better with this kind of training.

Remember, that once you go through the training at WA, you still have to find an affiliate program and/or find products to promote. With CBU, all the products are contained on Clickbank itself - you don’t have to venture far to find things to promote.

If you had to choose between the two, you may want to choose CBU and master the Clickbank platform before venturing out into broader affiliate marketing.

If you want to do something other than affiliate marketing, say for example e-commerce, you may want to look at WA or better yet a program that specifically teaches only ecommerce.

What if you don’t have any money for either program?

The Third Option For Affiliate Marketing Training


Let me be a little blunt here…

Yes, you can start affiliate marketing without any money, however, In order to be in business successfully, you will eventually need money to build your business in order to pay for tools and advertising.

Free Affiliate Marketing Training

As a no cost alternative, I recommend Mark Ling’s Affilorama program. It teaches you the basics of affiliate marketing and they also offer more in-depth paid courses to help take your business to the next level. Mark has his own tools like a backlinks checker and other keyword research tools that you can use for free. See one of Mark's videos below.

Affilorama is a good program even if you have money to spend, but there is no community collaboration and some of the content produced was done years ago. The basics of affiliate marketing doesn't change - what does change are strategies and tactics especially when it comes down to getting traffic.

How to Decide Between Affilorama, Clickbank University, and Wealthy Affiliate

If you like a more interactive learning environment, and you enjoy watching videos, I would suggest Clickbank University or Wealthy Affiliate. Affilorama is mostly text based and it’s not as interactive as WA and CBU.

Mark does have two other primary products, Pathway to Passive which is all about building niche websites. This may be a little more advanced for the average newbie affiliate marketer. His second primary product is Affiliojetpack, which is almost like a business in a box, complete with your niche specific website and done-for-you emails.

If you like the way Mark teaches, I would suggest starting with Affilorama to get an overview first and then get Affilojetpack. Affilorama although very informative is just a bit to "dry" for my liking - although it may be a better fit for ​beginner marketers who just want to fully understand affiliate marketing.

Just a note - Affilojetpack is basically a business in a box where everything is done for you. Although it’s a nice way to start, in general you really need to learn how to do everything yourself - write your own emails, write your own copy, put up your own website. You want to be always growing and improving.

The MOST Awesome Affiliate Marketing Training

You can’t go wrong with any of the three suggestions here - you just need to carefully look at each one and see which is the best fit for you - and pick ONE. Try it out for a month and if it doesn't suit you, try another one.

I will say that the MOST focused training here is Clickbank University. The more focused you are, the more likely you are to be very successful as an affiliate marketer.

Here are some questions to keep in mind…

  • Do you like how the content is put together?
  • Is the trainer(s) easy to understand?
  • Can you see yourself logging in each day and reading and/or watching the training lessons? 
  • Is there something about the platform that bugs you? Or is something about the platform that you really like? 
  • Are you able to implement the actions suggested to you in the training or is the training too vague?
  • After implementing the actions, how successful were you - if at all?
  • What in the training made the difference or what is lacking in the training that you feel contributed to your lack of success?
clickbank universit vs wealthy affiliate

It Doesn’t Exist

You see there is no one best affiliate program that fits everyone. When it comes to learning the basics of Internet/affiliate marketing,

I tend to recommend products from well-known marketers not products from wanna be gurus who just want to throw together a crappy product real fast in order to make a quick buck.

A lot of these products tend to not be done very well, are not very thorough i.e you need to buy their additional upsells to fill in the gaps the main product doesn’t teach, and the person or people behind the product doesn’t stand by their product i.e. no support, the product is no longer accessible, etc. If you’ve bought products in the past, then you know this to be the case in a lot of instances.

This is why I focused on these three particular products - Clickbank University, Affilorama, and Wealthy Affiliate. People have had success because of what they learned at each one of those programs.

Watch out for all those articles you see online that recommend products no one has ever heard of. If you’re gonna dig into your wallet and spend your money on training, at least spend money on programs that have been proven to help people get started successfully as affiliate marketers.

We’re all different and we all learn differently and in different ways - like the saying goes, there isn’t a one glove fits all approach to choosing a program.

The most important thing is that you absolutely must take ACTION on the knowledge you are given. Knowledge doesn’t put money into your bank account- only applied knowledge does.

I hope you found this helpful!

Plug in Profit Site Review Updated

Hold on to your cash and don't join a single thing until you've completely read this updated Plug-in Profit Site review.

Is Plug in Profit Site the best automated money-making system?


Now let me tell you why.

This might "sting" a little bit, but I gotta be honest here…

I was a previous user (and promoter) of this system. After all, it was the longest running “home business in a box” system that was out there (and it still is).

The concept looks good on “paper”...

A complete automated money-making system that has autoresponder messages and multiple streams of income all built-in for you. Alls you gotta do is drive traffic to it and voila you’re making money hand over fist.



Here’s where it gets kinda of “sticky”...

Great Automated Money-Making Systems Are Few and Far in Between

As a former active user and promoter of the Plug in Profit Site system (PIPS), I did generate leads and make money from people joining the various programs in the system.

But not as much as I would’ve hoped for. You see, Stone Evans, the creator of this automated money-making system, changes the programs being promoted within the system quite often and without warning.

As a user of Plug in Profit Site, you would join the programs that are within the system. Some of these programs do require you to upgrade into a paying member, whereas there are usually at least one program (usually SFI) that is completely free to join.

What this means is that when someone joins PIPS from your affiliate link, they will have the opportunity to join under you in all these programs, however, for the paid programs, you have to be a paying member in order to be an affiliate.

Sounds good so far? Well, hold on...

Imagine this…

You’ve upgraded into a program in PIPS only to learn that program has been replaced with something else a month later. Now you have to upgrade into that program or lose out on potential commissions.

So you end up spending a lot of money joining program after program not knowing if the program you just joined will even be on the PIPS site tomorrow.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to keep reaching into my wallet to pull out my hard earned cash to join yet another business opportunity - especially one that I have no interest in and did not pick.  

In fact, one of the biggest complaints about PIPS is that the programs keep changing. You also have no say so in what Stone Evans decides to promote on PIPS.

Remember, when you join PIPS you’re either sending your traffic directly to their landing page that promotes the five income streams or you’re sending them to your landing page that is connected to your autoresponder service in which the emails refer back to either the landing page or the PIPS back office.

You're a Loser Baby!

So your leads, potential customers and customers are constantly seeing the five income streams, however, some of them may not be the same five income streams you signed up with.

So, what happens if someone signs up to an opportunity that you’re not signed up in? It rolls up the next person above you who has upgraded/enrolled in that particular program. In a lot of cases, that someone is Stone Evans.

What am I really saying?

PIPS can work for you if you:

1. Don’t mind keeping up with the various business programs Stone puts into the system. You have to keep checking the landing page and/or your back office to see what is currently being promoted - and then joining those new programs.

2. Don’t mind spending lots of money on various business opportunities that Stone puts into the system.

3. Don’t mind having business programs and opportunities being chosen for you.

4. Want a blog set up for you - even if it has business programs on it that you have no interest or financial gain in.

Plug-in Profit Site - Two Thumbs Down or Up?

plugin profit site review

We'll I'm mixed with this one...

Yes, this is not going to be the best fit for some people. For other people who agree with that list I put above, then PIPS is a good fit.

It's at least a way to get a blog set up on your behalf and not have to pay for hosting (at least at the time of this writing).

What I do like are some of this traffic strategies he lists in the training, including training on how to optimize your blog.

Stone Evans seems like a really nice guy. I think he really meant well when he created this business in a box system. However, you’ve got to look at it from your perspective - what’s in your best interest.

 As the programs stands right now, it’s not something I can 100% endorse.

And yes Stone is aware of how people feel about him changing out the programs so often - I’ve even told him how I felt and he said that he would find a core set of business programs and stick to those. So far, that has NOT been the case.

Still Want to Make Money Online?

affiliate marketing

I suggest you find a business model that you like that is in a niche that is profitable (this is key) and then roll up your sleeves and go to work. Learn how to market online effectively and in turn start building your list.

This sounds like a lot - and it can be. This is why I always recommend you invest into a good course.

Affiliate Marketing

I recommend the following for affiliate marketing:

1. Clickbank University (read this Clickbank University review here)

2. Affilorama

3. Wealthy Affiliate (yeah, I know - a review is coming shortly)

Home Business

For a done-for-you business, there isn't one I can in good faith recommend. There are many that are here today, gone tomorrow. Then you have those businesses that are exact replicas of Plug-in Profit Site where the businesses are chosen for you and you have to join all of them in order to really benefit.

The only business that I can recommend that is more of an affiliate program is Global Domains International - aka GDI. If you've been on the 'net any length of time, you either joined it at one time or you've seen it being heavily promoted. You can make a significant income with it - if you stick with it. You can learn more here about it.

Plug-in Profit Site

Lastly, PIPS is still an option if you heed the advice that I gave here. Like I stated before, it works for some people. Overall, with the constant changing of the programs, it doesn't work long term for most unless you want to keep digging into your wallet. Nevertheless, click here to learn more about Plug-in Profit Site.

I firmly believe you'll do well in any program listed here. Just stick with it and take consistent actions to build your business. - Corrisa 🙂

How to Use Tripleclicks to Sell Your Products

If you want to sell more of your products and not pay a bunch of money every month upfront, then you’ll want to use a site called Tripleclicks. Joining can seem a little daunting, which is why you’ll want to read this first…

sell on tripleclicks


You’ve got products to sell?


Well, here’s the good news – there’s no lack of platforms to sell it on.


Here’s the bad news – the vast majority of sites will charge you monthly fees for just the privilege of using their site to sell your products on. For a lot of people just starting out in ecommerce these monthly fees present a barrier.


This is where Tripleclicks comes in.


The Secret Little Site That Lets You Pay Only When You Sell Your Products


As you’re reading this, I can bet you have never heard of Tripleclicks. This site has been around for a few years and is backed by a company that has been in business nearly twenty years. If you compare all the selling platforms out there to Tripleclicks (or TC for short), you’ll find this program stands way at the top.


Here are the biggest pros of using Tripleclicks (and hey if you can afford to pay the monthly fees at the other platforms, just add in TC to increase your exposure of your products!)

  • No monthly fees
  • You only pay a percentage when you sell your products
  • They handle all payments – even globally
  • There are no listing fees (you can list as many of your products as you want on your eCommerce site)


Understand this…


The less fees you have coming out of your bank account, the more money you can put towards your business to grow it.


What Does It Cost to Get Started Selling on Tripleclicks?


If you already have an existing business online or offline, there is no fee to get started. If you’re brand spankin’ new, you will need to get a license for a one-time fee of $40 bucks. Remember, this is a business expense. You should talk to your accountant or tax person to help guide you with your business.


Just so you know, Tripleclicks calls the people that have ecommerce sites on its platform ECAs (ecommerce affiliates) and the program is called the ECA program.


How Do I Get Started Selling on Tripleclicks?


First of all, you will need products to sell. I’m assuming that you already have your products and/or your drop-shippers lined up. If you need help finding companies that will work with you to drop-ship your products, hit me up after your application has been approved by TC.


Here are the steps:

1. Go to ECA Application – (scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page)

eca signup

2. Fill out the application. You should have some idea of what kinds of products you want to sell.


3. Wait for approval. This could take several days. In the meantime decide what products you want to sell first and get those descriptions and photos ready so that when you’re approved you’re ready to go.


Making Sales at Tripleclicks


What sets TC apart from other selling platforms is that there is a built-in community of affiliates that can to help you sell your products. They earn a commission that is paid by the parent company of Tripleclicks. It costs you nada, zilch, nothing to get affiliates to help you sell your products. Some of these affiliates will want to connect with your business.


Once they make connections with you, you are able to email them from within TC to let them know about upcoming products, sales, etc… This broadens your audience and in turn can help you sell more products – and doesn’t cost you a single cent. This is what sets Tripleclicks ahead of the vast majority of selling platforms.


Whether you want to increase your exposure of your products, or you just want a low cost way to get started in ecommerce, Tripleclicks is one place that should be at the top of your list!

Paid Free Surveys: Internet Registration As Easy As 1-2-3

If you’re wondering about paid free surveys and how to join them using Internet registration, then you’ll want to do these easy simple steps…

paid free survey internet registration

One of the questions I get a lot is, “What paid survey sites do I join?”

So, if you’re wondering the very same question then this article will make it much clearer for you and even show you one profitable way of doing them.

Paid Free Surveys via Internet Registration on Mega Sites

Ok, you’re probably thinking what the heck is that. Let me explain…

For simplicity sake, there two primary kinds of survey sites out there…

You have direct survey companies like Pinecone Research that for the most part have just surveys on their sites that you can complete.

Then you have sites like FusionCash and Clixsense that have not only surveys that you can complete, but other ways to make money such as taking trial offers, watching videos, etc… So you could say that these paid free survey sites are kinda like mega sites because you have a vast amount of ways to earn money outside of just doing surveys.

So, the question becomes is it better to fill out surveys on these mega surveys sites or should you do surveys from companies that specialize in just surveys?

Here’s the surprising answer…

Do both if you want to make the most amount of money - however, I do suggest you do this FIRST so you’re not waiting around wasting your time. Read on...

The First Internet Registration You Should Do on Paid Survey Sites

paid free survey Internet registration

If you’ve never done online surveys before, then this may come as a surprise to you. You see, before you ever get to the point of getting paid to do surveys, you have to fit the criteria and/or demographics of that particular survey. What that means in plain English is that you have to qualify first.

Know that you won’t qualify for most surveys - and that’s ok, because it’s kinda like a numbers game. Here’s the little secret…

If you set aside time everyday to do surveys - say for example 30 minutes at minimum, you will see that you’re able to make X amount of money per month by doing surveys for only 30 minutes of work daily. It’s the cumulative effect of doing surveys daily for a set number of times that reaps the reward.

Ok so now that you know that you have to qualify for surveys in order to take them and that most surveys you won’t qualify for, then it makes sense to NOT just rely on surveys to make money - right?

You want to join sites like FusionCash before joining sites like Pinecone Research because these types of mega survey sites have other ways to make money besides doing surveys. And if you’re waiting around on sites like Pinecone Research to send your surveys that you actually qualify for, you may be waiting a long time and you’re likely to have a lot of days where you make absolutely no money -zilch, nada.

Your goal is to make money everyday - and the only way that’s going to be an absolute possibility is if you join the mega sites like FusionCash, CashCrate, and Clixsense first. How Are They Different?

Those three have pretty much the same or similar offers with FusionCash having more survey offers and Clixsense appealing more to an international crowd outside of the U.S. I suggest you pick one one to start off with or join all three and see which one you like better. You really just need just one mega survey site.

Your next step after you’ve joined one of those, is to join the top survey only sites. Keep in mind that a lot of these survey only sites pay in points. These points you can then redeem for cash or gift cards. This is another reason why you want to join one of the Mega survey sites first - they pay in cash not points.

Here are some survey online sites:

Pinecone Research

Global Test Market


American Consumer Opinion

Note that sometimes these sites close registration to new people or they’ll tell you that they don’t have openings at this time that match your demographics or household make up. It’s ok, just try again at a later time or wait until they contact you.

Signing Up and Taking Surveys

paid free survey Internet registration

You want to make sure you complete your profile completely. This is the only criteria they have to match you with the right surveys.

Because there is always a company or a person who is sponsoring the surveys i.e. paying for these surveys to be conducted, you want to make sure you give honest feedback and don’t try to game the system.

Re-Cap - Paid Free Surveys Internet Registration

  • Fill out your profile completely
  • Set aside a time to do at least 30 minutes each day on these mega survey sites
  • Join top survey only sites such as Pinecone, Global Test Market, Toluna, American Consumer Opinion
  • Fill out your profile completely
  • When they send you surveys via email try to do them (at least qualify for them) as soon as you can. This gives you better odds of getting in to do the surveys. The longer you wait to do these surveys, you increase the odds that the survey will no longer need survey takers in your demographics to do them.

If surveys aren’t mailed to you, then log in daily to see which ones you’re qualified to do and do them.

Paid online surveys are one of many ways to earn money online outside of having a business of course. They can pay some bills every month but won’t make you filthy rich.

What Can I Do to Make Money On the Side That’s Not a Business?

Having trouble paying some of your bills? Need some spending cash for your family every month? Then you’ll want to stop what you’re doing and read this..

What Can I Do to Make Money On the Side That's Not a Business?

With a computer and the Internet, the world’s your oyster!

I understand how it must feel to not have enough money to pay all your bills at the end of the month or to not be able to treat your family to a nice dinner at your favorite restaurant.

More than ever I get contacted by people who just want to make a little extra money on the side without the commitment of doing a business.

I totally get that.

Yes, you can absolutely make money on the side doing various things – from filling out surveys to clicking links in emails…and everything else in between.

If you dream of having a little spending cash every month, then you’ll want to carefully look at the section below…

What Can I Do to Make Money On the Side? How About Surveys and Pay to Click Sites…


These lists will be short, sweet and to the point.

You see, people tend to not make choices when faced with too many choices. My hope for you is to get out of “analysis paralysis” mode so that you can be on your way to making some cool moolah.

With that said, here is the question I see all the time…

Do Surveys Really Work?

Yes! Yes! Yes!


I’ve probably said it a thousand times on this site, but here’s my disclaimer…you’re not gonna buy a Maserati clicking links and taking surveys. There I said it.

I have to admit that sometimes I actually enjoy being the bearer of bad news because then it sets you FREE to set realistic expectations that you can actually achieve 🙂

Here’s the reality – on average what you can earn is enough money for a bill or two every month. Some guy actually posted that he’s making $1k – $1600/month just filling out surveys! More on that later…

Consistency is your best friend. Pick an amount of time that you know that you can commit to daily. At minimum 30 minutes a day. 

Here are the TOP 3 Survey Variety Sites

These sites have many ways you can earn from taking surveys, to getting paid to watch videos to getting paid to do tasks.

  1. FusionCash
  2. Cash Crate
  3. Clixsense

Higher Paying Survey Company

Prolific – This company is sponsored by Oxford University

Other Survey Type Sites

Some of these sites pay in gift cards.

InstaGC – Surveys and trial offers

Earn Honey – Claims it offers some of the highest payouts

Swagbucks – Earn by doing surveys, doing Internet searches etc…


Think About Mystery Shopping as a Way to Make Money on the Side

What Can I Do to Make Money On the Side

I was a BIG time mystery shopper back in the day when I unexpectedly got laid off from my job. Mystery shopping can create a nice side income in addition there are times you get small items for free, free meals, free hotel stays etc…  

There are hundreds if not thousands of companies across the United States, Canada and Australia. I’m not sure about any other countries.

Remember, you NEVER ever pay to become a mystery shopper.


Here Are Some Top Picks:

A Closer Look – They’ve been in business over 20 years! They service includes restaurants, hotels, and retail establishments.

Amusement Advantage – This company services amusement parks, bowling centers, museums, etc… This company has also been in business over 20 years. This is a great opportunity if you have children or grandchildren (or if you can borrow a niece or nephew :-).

Bestmark – A leader in this industry – has been around over 30 years! They have a wide variety of shops in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada. I worked for this company way back when.

Cirrus Marketing – Another company I used to work for. They’ve been around for ages and have a wide variety of shops including theme parks and audit shops.


Micro-Tasks, Errands…
What Can I Do to Make Money On the Side

You can get paid a few cents for doing small tasks online or you can gt paid some serious money by doing errands for others.


Some of those Survey sites I listed earlier have micro-tasks you can complete and earn a few cents for. In addition you have sites like:

M-Turk – This is a company that is a part of Amazon.
ClickWorker – Read this Clickworker review I did a couple of years ago.

Run Errands

Task Rabbit


Be a Driver


Home Jobs

What Can I Do to Make Money On the Side

With these jobs you’re either employed by a company or you’re an independent contractor. Some home jobs have very strict requirements and some only hire in certain states. Make sure you read each job’s FAQ/Requirements,/Description etc before you apply.

Customer Service Agent


Internet Based Jobs


Lionbridge (very strict criteria – make sure you read carefully)

LeapForce – Do search engine related tasks

Zero Chaos – Rating ads online. There’s not a lot of English speaking jobs, but a ton of jobs in other languages such as Vietnamese, Russian, etc… If you speak a language fluently other than English then your odds of getting in improve greatly.


What Can I Do to Make Money On the Side


Get Paid For Writing

Constant Content
Content Gather


Become a Mail Decoy

US Monitor – Long time company that’s legit. You’ll only get a few bucks per month

I Have a Health/Physical/Mental Issues – What Can I Do to Make Money On the Side?


If you’re dealing with some sort of issue that prevents you from having to work with people, and/or if you have some sort of limited ability, know there are ways that you can still make money online…

Mystery Shopping – You can just do shops that are a lot simpler and easier to do (i.e. gasoline, drug store shops (Wal-Greens etc), apartment shops. Better yet, just do shops that only require phone call audits (no physical store visits).

Home Jobs – If you’re not into dealing people even on the phone, consider doing data entry, You can check with local businesses in your area to see if they need someone to do data entry for them. Also consider internet search type jobs like Leapforce, Lionbridge.

Online surveys can work well – if you spend several hours a day doing them like this guy. He says he makes about $250-$400 per week. The alternative to making that kind of money without filling out the surveys yourself is to get referrals – IMHO that is the better way.

Where to Start?

Clearly you don’t want join every single thing on here. The best approach is to find the one or two things that appeal to you and do those. My hope for you is that you don’t leave this site without putting together an action plan of how you intend to make money.

So, what can I do to make money on the side that’s not a business? Well, you got your answers…

Now go make some money!

Which brings us to this…


The Truth About Plug in Profit Site (PIPS)



I’m very critical and cynical by nature. In this industry you almost have to be.


But I’m not so cynical that I can’t be objective and have an open mind about certain business products and services.


I see far too many people who are so obsessed with the word “scam” that they think everything is out to get them and their wallet. Do you ever feel like this?


There has be a balance. And you have to use good ol’ common sense. Which is why I gave PIPS a second look-over.


You see, I ran into Plug in Profit Site a few years ago. In fact, it was one of the first programs I had seen online that talked about a home business system.


At that time, I couldn’t get my head around why anyone would want a system like this. After all, couldn’t you just load up a website with all your affiliate links and just promote that?


Well, the short answer is ‘no’ because this system is much deeper than that. In fact, due to the success of this business system, there have been many copycats over the years who have borrowed some of the key successful components of PIPS.


Back then I didn’t do my due diligence to really understand what this program was all about. What I know now is that this program has a way to help both beginners and seasoned marketers alike make more money online a lot faster.


If you’re interested in learning how to make more money with ease, then read on…


The Breakdown of PIPS


I’m sure there were times where you felt that Internet marketing was too confusing and time consuming to learn and do.


For the most part you would be right, but this is where the PIPS automated business system comes in.


You see, PIPS reveals the #1 skill you have to get in order to be successful on the Internet.



It not only tells you, it shows you what you need to understand. This way, you’re not bogged down with unimportant minute details that don’t really matter that much especially at the beginning stages of your business.


PIPS gives you enough information and tools so you can begin to make money right now – not five years from now.


The Programs


There are five money-making programs that are a part of PIPS. These programs constantly change with the only exception being SFI – it’s the most constant program that has been a staple of the PIPS program.


You WILL need hosting. If you already don’t have hosting, you’ll want to go with GVO. It’s the best deal on the ‘net because you get video conferencing, hosting, and autoresponder all under one roof for the incredibly low price of $10 bucks.


I’m not gonna get into the details of each program. You can read about each one by clicking on the links above.


Here’s the surprise with this system…


It is designed to make you money a lot quicker than if you were promoting just one program by itself.


In other words, you’re on the fast track to create multiple checks at one time so you’re building multiple streams of income from one simple website.


You may want to re-read that sentence again.


One of the primary reasons why you’re struggling to make the kind of money you want to make is that you’re probably only promoting one thing and you’re probably not building your golden asset – your list.


If that’s what you’re doing, then it’s no wonder you’re hopping around from program to program trying to find the secret. Well, that is the secret and most marketers like myself who are making money online are diversifying their income and doing it the much simpler and easier way.


Plug in Profit Site just makes it so much darn easier to do it – period.


Let’s Get Dirty and Air the Pros and Cons



The problem with most Plug in Profit Site reviews and other affiliate reviews is that you’re reading from someone who has a vested interested in getting you to sign up.


Let’s be honest here. Yes, I’m an affiliate for this program and is one of the few Internet-based home business programs that I recommend even for beginners.


I’ve been helping people online making money long before I ever seen PIPS and I’ll continue with or without PIPS.


I want people to be successful. And that may mean that I have to turn people away from certain programs that I feel aren’t in their best interest. And PIPS is no different.


Because I understand the importance of choosing a product/service/biz opp, it’s only right that I give you the info so you can make an informed decision one way or the other.


Let’s start with the Cons…


The biggest con of Plug in Profit Site is that you do not get to choose the programs that are listed on your main page. Further more, Stone Evans, the creator of PIPS does change out programs from time to time.


So you have to be able to trust his judgment when he picks programs to add to the PIPS lineup. So if you’re a control freak you may have a hard time sitting back and letting Stone take charge. Some people are like that and even myself I am like that to a certain extent, but there’s how I look at it…


If you’re in a network marketing company, the company is going to make changes to the comp plan, discontinue what you think are popular products, change formulations, change management, etc… and you have to be able to go with the flow or else you’re gonna drive yourself bonkers.


If you’re an affiliate for a product, the same thing applies. The product owner may decide to change the payout, not offer it anymore, or do that scarcity tactic where they close it down temporarily. Again, you have to be able to go with the flow and not let it bother you.


So, in a nutshell, if you’re a person who’s very rigid and likes to be in 100% control of every single aspect of your business, then PIPS (or any other affiliate program), may not be the right fit for you.


The biggest pros of Plug in Profit are:


You get a blog set up for you that is completely yours – you’re hosting it with GVO. You’re able to attract people into your PIPS business due to the way Stone sets up your blog. There is a method to the madness.


If you had a hard time deciding what programs to promote, then you can take a breather as Stone chooses the programs on your main affiliate site on your behalf. However, on your blog you have 100% complete control over what programs you put on it.


There is a low cost entry barrier and we even give you all the tools you need to get started. Heck, even Avon is like about $10 bucks to join and they don’t even give you anything!


PIPS gives you what you need in order to start making money right away – and it won’t cost you thousands of dollars either.


So, if you’ve had challenges in the past getting up and running in an online business and/or you were’n’t sure how to get started, then a Plug in Profit Site is the place to go so you can get over the hurdles that have hindered you in the past.


What Does Plug in Profit Site Cost?



I’m not a fan of slimy programs that tell you that it will cost x only to find out that it’s gonna cost you a lot more than you anticipated.


Here’s what it is…


You need to be the boss in your business, which means you need to:

a) Host your own website (in this case blog) and…

b) Be building your list


Most programs start you off at a disadvantage to you and at an big advantage to the owner. Plug in Profit isn’t like that. We start you off with the important things you need to be doing so you can start being a true entrepreneur.


PIPS had found a solution that lets you have both hosting and autoresponder for a mere $10 bucks a month. So the cost of your system is free, all you have to do is pay for hosting.


If you have to think about spending $10 bucks, then you’re probably not ready for any kind of business.


Let me lay it on the line for ya…


If you’re not able to set aside $10 bucks a month on something that can have a positive effect on your life and that of your family, then you’re not quite ready to be an entrepreneur yet.


Find a job to do or do some real paid online surveys until you’re ready to do what it takes to succeed. Until you get to this point, you’re not gonna make much of anything online in any business.


Plug in Profit Site is not a magical system or a make riches overnight scheme. It’s for those who have reached the point in their life where they want to a better lifestyle for themselves and their family and they’re willing to do what it takes.


PIPS just makes the cost of getting started in an Internet-based business more affordable for the average person. Don’t let the low cost fool ya -you have to be absolutely serious about your income goals and be willing to do what it takes. This system rewards those who are thirsty for positive change in their lives – is this you?


If not, then you may want to re-think being involved a home based business.


The Cost of the Individual Programs


The five programs in PIPS cost various amounts and some are free to join. However, if you want to make the maximum amount of money, you’ll want to upgrade in each program as you go along. If you’re not willing to do this at some point, it’s a waste of your time to join PIPS.


You don’t have to upgrade in all the programs at the same time. I recommend that you only do one at a time until you’re getting traffic and then upgrade as you go along.


Now, if you’re going at this full-speed and/or you have someone helping your build your business, then it’s gonna be in your best interest to make sure you’re upgraded in all five of the programs so that you’re not leaving money on the table.


Marketing Budget



Like with any business, you’re gonna need a marketing budget. There are some FREE tactics we train you on but overall, you do want to be able to have some money at some point to put towards your business.


One of the great things about this system is that there is an advertising co-op available to you so you don’t have to worry about marketing at all unless you want to.


What is Plug in Profit Site – In a Nutshell?


If you’ve been pegged down with all the things you gotta do to get started in an online business, then you’ll appreciate PIPS step-by-step approach that makes it darn simple to start making money on the Internet…even if you’re on a limited budget.


Now matter how big your income goals are or what’s on your dream list, this is where it all begins.

Easy Fundraising Ideas For Church Youth Groups

If you’re looking for ways to make money for your local church group, then this is what you want to read before you start your next fundraiser…


Easy Fundraising Ideas For Church Youth Groups

If you’re wondering why I’m writing about easy fundraising ideas for church youth groups on a blog like this, well it’s like this…


Some people want to make money for themselves. You see, their motivation for making a lot of money is to create a better lifestyle for their family. Of course you can’t forget those people who want more “time freedom” so they can spend more time with their family and/or spend more time volunteering at their favorite charity or non-profit organization.


Then you have people who want to make a lot of money so they can financially help out a family member or their favorite organization.


Now this brings us full circle to easy fundraising ideas for church youth groups (or any type of group for that matter).


Let me ask you this…


Are you in charge of raising money for an organization? Would you like to be the person that helps a charity raise funds for a worthy cause? Are you a pastor that needs ideas for raising money? Are you a member of an organization that raises money and/or has charity events?


If you fall into any of those categories above, then you want to keep on reading…


Easy Fundraising Ideas For Church Youth Groups Isn’t Always So Easy or Fun…


Easy Fundraising Ideas For Church Youth Groups

You probably already know this, but raising money isn’t always as simple, easy, or fun as a lot of fundraising organizations make it out to be.


In fact, probably last time you did a fundraiser you probably swore you would do something different next time because it was not such a good experience.


That same feeling you get in the pit of your stomach every time fundraising time rolls around is the same feeling that a lot of other people in your organization experience too.


More often than not, the only person looking forward to fundraising is the person in charge of the fundraising itself. And even then, the only reason they’re looking forward to it is because they want it to be over.


Why the Negativity Towards Fundraising

Traditional fundraising is not an easy task. There are a lot of fundraisers that require a hefty down-payment to even start the program.


In a lot of cases, the majority of the organizers have to agree on what kind of fundraising to do. In addition they have to find a secure place to store the products and the money. Then they have to coordinate with all the participants and decide how they’re going to distribute brochures and/or products.


Then you have the issues with dealing with large sums of money, and being accountable for every last cent and all the fundraising products. Add into the mix you’re dealing with parents, kids, and the customers that bought fundraising products from your organization but never received what they ordered.



When it’s all said and done, in some instances a lot of organizations never hit their target fundraising goal. No one is ever 100% satisfied with the outcome of a fundraiser.


It’s a lot to take on and the stress is enough to make you “batty” if you’re not careful.


For those very reasons above, it’s a good idea to jot down the things you liked about your last few fundraisers and the things you didn’t like.


Remember that since a lot of parents work outside of the home their free time is severely limited. Also keep in mind that a lot of youth have other extracurricular activities, and you may find it challenging to get both parents and youths to participate fully in the fundraising activities.


For these reasons alone you may not want a long drawn out elaborate fundraiser – you want to keep it simple. At the end of the day it’s all about raising money, not about being cute or clever.


Now that you have clarity as to what you may be looking for, you’ll want to look at common fundraising ideas that you may (or may not) be familiar with.


Typical Fundraising Ideas

Here are some of the most common fundraising ideas. Some of these you may have tried in the past…


  • Selling candy bars
  • Selling candles
  • Selling frozen cookie dough tubs
  • Selling products from a catalog – including magazine subscriptions, candy, baking items, etc…
  • Having a bake sale
  • Selling raffle tickets
  • Having arts and crafts sales
  • Having rummage sales

Do  any of those fundraising projects look familiar to you? Quite likely, you have done at least one or more of those listed above. Maybe you were satisfied with your results or maybe you weren’t which is why you’re probably looking for something different to raise money for your organization this year.


If you’re serious about raising money for your organization, let me show you a better way to raise money – and do it all year-round without all the stress and with less effort than you probably think…


Let me introduce you to Tripleclicks

What if…


I could show you a way to generate money for your non-profit organization year round without having to deal with collecting money and delivering products – would you be interested?


Well of course you would – right?!


What is Tripleclicks?

Tripleclicks is an e-commerce selling platform where you can sell both new (ECA program) and used items.  Here are some ideas on how to use Tripleclicks and the ECA program to raise money for your organization…


Have an Online Rummage Sale Using Tripleclicks


Make it a ritual that your parishioners show up twice a month at church (or other designated area) at minimum to donate items they’re no longer using.


You can also spread the word in your community that your church (or other organization) takes used items on a certain particular days. You may also want to go door to door in your community collecting items from people.


What you’re going to do with all these used items, is do an online rummage sale. You’ll list them on the Tripleclicks platform (you can list for for as low as .29 for each item). You then spread the word about your church online rummage site. Tripleclicks handles all payments.


E-commerce Storefront Using Tripleclicks

You can make your church (or a leader of your church group) become an e-commerce associate (ECA for short) and have your very own storefront that can make you sales.


You can list new products that are likely to appeal to your congregation like Bibles and other religious items.


Your parishioners are going to buy these items anyway, why not have them buy it from you? The proceeds can be used to help out church youth groups or any other groups. You can use the proceeds to help grow your church and/or use the money to make repairs and improvements of your church building.


Unlike the typical fundraisers, online rummage sales and an e-commerce storefront can create a more steady income year-round passively once your e-commerce store becomes well-known.


Easy Fundraising Ideas For Church Youth Groups Using a Better Method


It’s a fact that if you want your youth group and other groups inside of your church to grow and prosper so it can help more people, you have to be able to either do fundraising or dig into church funds.

And digging into church funds is not an viable option for most churches that have a lot of groups that need funding.


You want your youth groups and other groups to self-sustaining financially if possible. It not only teaches accountability but it frees up the church’s money for other church expansion projects.


Easy fundraising ideas for church youth groups that produce year-round income are far and few in between. Fortunately this is where Tripleclicks and its ECA program shines best.
