In this episode of I Tried It, I try a Method by Incognito money where he says, you can earn $600 plus per week with a simple make money online for beginners tutorial. So watch this entire video to learn how much money I made if I made money, the pros and cons of this method, and potentially a better opportunity.
Hello, my name’s Alten God with Austin god bull.com. I create content to actually help you make money and not just to put money into my own pocket. And if you want to be added to this, Simply reply or comment on below with your city, state, province, country, and I’ll get you pinned. So what we’re gonna do in this video, as I mentioned, is I’m going to, uh, give you my results of trying this opportunity.
I’m gonna give you a quick overview of what this 13 minute video is all about. We’re gonna talk about the good, the bad, the ugly, and potentially a better opportunity. So let’s go ahead and get right into it. As I mentioned this video by Incognito Money. It was uploaded two weeks ago. It says, quick Cash Method to earn $600 plus this week.
Make money online for beginners. So basically what he’s gonna do is he’s going to have you sign up for five CPA Affiliate Marketing. You’re gonna earn between 15 and $30 per sale, and you are going to place ads on Craigslist. That is basically the entire 13 minute video. So I just saved you about 13 minutes.
Let’s talk about some of the issues that I have with. Video. First and foremost, he wants you to set up SEO services for local businesses. In fact, inside of this video, which was pretty cool, it actually gives you a template or script to follow. And so what you’re gonna do is you are going to place ads on Craigslist for SEO services, and you are going to refer those people over to FI and you’re gonna earn affiliate commissions.
The first thing that didn’t really make sense to me with this method was simply that if you are going to do this, Why not make more money with arbitrage? This is called services arbitrage. So for example, with this method that he mentions, you could earn maybe 50, 30, a hundred dollars at most per client.
However, if you do SEO services, you can see here on this website the average SEO cost between 100 and $250 an hour. SEO costs often range between $2,510,000 per month. So why not list these service? And you start your own business. And then you could arbitrage it out to somebody over on Fiber or Philippines or wherever.
So that was the first thing that was kind of curious. Why only get the affiliate commissions for just this, uh, one commission or sale instead? Why not just. Offer an agency where you hire, you hire people from five on the back end. That’s the first thing that didn’t make any sense. Minor issue, but it is what it is.
The other thing that is not mentioned in this video is that you actually have to spend $5 to place an ad over on, on Craigslist. Um, he doesn’t mention that he kind of glosses over it, but in order for you to place an ad over on Craigslist, it’ll cost you five bucks. I paid the $5 so that we could get some real results.
So, Kind of the myth part of it. Um, the good is I haven’t really seen this around. I’m sure that if I watch five more YouTube videos, I’ll see this offer again and again and again, but, Overall, I don’t know that this is going to work. So what I did the other day, it was Sunday morning, I went and followed all of the steps.
It’s a, like I said, a 13 minute video where you are going to, uh, sign up for the five affiliate network. You’re gonna sign up for the hybrid, the the CPA method, cost per uh, acquisition, or cost per action. And then you are going to go over. Craigslist and place an ad, and so I’m gonna show you a, uh, this is my account where I place the ad.
You can see here that I paid $5 for one posting, and down here you can actually see the link to the ad. Now this is where it gets very, very, very interesting what he recommends in his video. Is to place this ad over in New York. I wanted to be completely different from everyone else. I went to the other side of the country who did LA and the San Fernando Valley.
It’s only $5. But still, if you’re spending time, energy, money, effort, trying to get these different side hustles and opportunities to work, you don’t want to be wasting your time or your money. And that’s what happened in this instance. So does this work? The answer is no, because obviously you can see my account was flagged as, uh, you know, against the terms of service.
You want to make sure that you are doing whatever it takes to comply with these standards. You don’t want to be kicked off of these platforms and have to start from scratch. It is very important when you’re listening to the gurus over on YouTube, when you’re listening to people that are telling you easy, simple, quick cash ways to make money online.
You have to always be a little bit cautious in the back of your mind. Think about, okay, is this compliant? Will this help me? Now think about it from the actual, uh, website or TikTok or YouTube channel. Think about it from their perspective. They make money from their ads. They make money from having people come to their platform and spend their time or spend their money.
They don’t want a bunch of junk content on their website. So when you think about like TikTok, and I’m gonna do another, I tried it video next week talking. The TikTok bot. TikTok doesn’t want a bunch of low quality content, and so it’s not going to boost it as much because if people start seeing a lot of low quality content, they’re not going to stay on the app.
And so while it may work temporarily, it’s not gonna work for much longer. Same goes with YouTube. We saw recently YouTube started demonetizing rain videos. They started demonetizing the Reddit videos where people are just using robotic. That’s considered low quality content. And as a marketplace, as a website that makes money from the users, it doesn’t want to be saddled with so much low quality content.
So if you’re going to do this, there is a right way to do it. First. I would, um, I would actually maybe include more information than just what he had on there. Um, I would be honest about what your business does. I would have a little bit more information, like I said, uh, but this opportunity, I don’t think is a great one at all.
If you wanted to use the Fiber affiliate program, there’s a bunch of ways to do it. There’s right ways and wrong ways. Um, one great way to use the Fiber Affiliate program, for example. If you’re targeting people that wanna start a business, now think about it like this. People that wanna start a business, what are some things that they need?
They might need a logo created. So you could refer people using your affiliate link to fiber for logos. They might want a website set up or landing pages created. Um, or you know, maybe even. A blog or something along those lines. Fiber can be a great place to earn affiliate commissions if you do it the right way.
And like I said there, I think there’s a bunch of problems with this method that I, I watch and I tried, uh, again, I do these videos. To help you sift through the BS because I spent a lot of time, a lot of money, a lot of energy, and a lot of frustration trying to get these quick cash methods, the fast side hustle methods.
I spent a lot of time trying to get those off the ground, and when I found that didn’t work, I had two options. I could keep searching for something that does work or I could be frustrated and give up, and I’m trying. I’m trying to save you before you get frustrated and give up. Because I was there, I was close to being frustrated and giving up because the softwares that claim to be your one stop solution, they oftentimes didn’t work.
Um, the quick cash method videos that I would watch over and over and over again, oftentimes they didn’t work. And so what I’m trying to get you to, Is to realize that the only way for you to be successful online in 2022 and 2023 is to start creating content that is valuable and that is helpful. In my video yesterday that I talked about affiliate marketing is easy.
I showed you how you could start from scratch as a complete beginner and start getting traction and start building a follow. And making and earning affiliate commissions. It really isn’t that difficult when you follow the method that I talked about in yesterday’s video. So watch that video yesterday because it shows you literally step by step.
It takes you by the hand how to get started. But back to this video, this video doesn’t work. Okay? Even if you look at the comment section, one of the things that people say is that, Hey, you didn’t mention that it would cost $5. Someone else said that they had an issue with their, their, their posting being suspended.
Okay, and that’s how you know that some of these aren’t as clear cut, aren’t as easy as it seems. This one makes you believe that you could earn $600 this week. I actually lost $5 on it. Watch this video next because YouTube says it’s going to help you grow your online business.
