What’s Inside the Blogging with

John Chow? Is It For You?

You may have heard or read about John Chow’s new product called Blogging with John Chow already. Now you’re probably wondering what is inside of it and if it’s really for you or not.

I may be able to help you in answering the first part of the question by giving you a pretty good idea about what is inside the course.

How many times have you bought a course or a product online only to find out that it was really not for you or what you expected it to be? If you’re like me and most people, I think that it has happend to you at least once.

My aim is to help you avoid that situation from repeating itself yet again.

A full multiple post product review series is not something you can readily find anywhere else. After reading the posts you will have a very good idea about Blogging with John Chow and whether it’s for you or not.

You will find absolutely no sales pitch in any of my 10 review posts. This is not a fake, you should buy this stuff, high pressure review. Please do not buy this course unless you are sure that it’s what you really want.

What you’ll read in the review posts will be my description of the product from the inside as I go through it. Each post will go deeper into the course.

Just to make a full disclosure, I want you to know that I received a free access to this product yesterday from John Chow himself at my request. I have purchased a much more expensive course from John more than a year ago, however, called Blog Profit Camp which has been closed since to new customers.

I am not getting and will not get any compensation in any form whatsoever for writing this review from John or anyone else. My only reward will be you and other readers being informed about what this course is like. Only if and when you conclude that you would like to purchase this course through the links on this blog will I earn a percentage of the price of it.

What You Should Know About John Chow and the Reviewer:

I have known John for a couple of years and have met with him many times at his Dot Com Pho meetings. I admire what he does and his excellent business sense. He’s very easy going, approachable and will help anybody he can. He takes criticism and other opinions very well and even encourages them.

(Watch the video below which shows John Chow having fun play acting as he eats at 3:07 min. into the video and then see him and hear him again at 4:00 min to 5:20 min. into it. This is the latest video with John at Dot Com Pho in Vancouver).

Because of that and because of my personal principles the review posts won’t be a whitewash of the course.

In fact, I will point out what I think is lacking in it and what could be improved. Not because I’m a bigger expert than John, of course not, but because I’m closer than he is to those who are still learning and thus can see things from their angle.

First Introductory Look Inside Blogging with John Chow

So let’s have a look inside the course. Update September 06, 2017: This course about blogging by John Chow is no longer available. There is however a course from another top blogger which is just as good. You can check it out at the following link below:

How in the world can you learn internet marketing with instant internet marketing lifestyle? Does the internet lifestyle happen instantly while learning?

If you’ve been trying to learn internet marketing for a while you’ll probably want to start running. But wait, just a moment, until you find out what Instant Internet Lifestyle is.

Instant Internet Lifestyle is a course by Lee McIntyre. Lee is not known for promising instant anything. It beats me why he chose a name like that for the course.

What is the course really about and why should you care?

Instant Internet Lifestyle Review

The Instant Internet Lifestyle course is a 31 Day 8 Step Profit Plan with no hand holding or one on one help.

If you are new to internet marketing you will most likely need some extra help.

The course includes a free consultation over the phone (which you have to initiate) and a free gift said to be worth $197 if you make the phone call once you’ve gone through the course.

I would only make such a call after going through the whole course first if I liked the course and needed additional help. In my view it’s great that there is someone to talk to and for free to boot. They are giving the free gift to encourage people to get additional help if they need it.

Instant Internet Lifestyle consists of 9 videos

The first video is a one hour training by Lee McIntyre that you need to watch first.

Then you’ll be ready to learn from eight hours of 8 recorded session videos of Upside Down & Inside Out workshop with Lee McIntyre.

People paid $997 to attend this two day workshop live.

The Topics You’ll Learn About

1. Momentum Marketing Madness

2. The Massive Monthly Pay Rise Method

3. The 4X Profit Method

4. Deep Connection Dynamics

5. Automatic Traffic Control

6. Affiliate Army Method

7. The Internet Automation Plan

8. Video Sales Uncut

There are also two unannounced bonuses once you get inside the course.

What I Don’t Like About Instant Internet Lifestyle

1. The name of the course is a bit inaccurate and I would change it to Virtually Instant Internet Lifestyle.

Calling it Instant Internet Lifestyle is pushing it a bit too far even though I realize that this is what people want to hear.

Maybe Lee considered the length of the name and shortened it to what it is.

2. The course is too advanced for internet marketing novices or newbies since it doesn’t show you how to do things. This is partially remedied by the free consultation.

The methods which Lee reveals are not ever taught by any of the big internet marketing gurus nor anybody else I know, read about or heard of.

They are exactly what Lee does himself and they are what made him successful within such a short time. (You can watch Lee McIntyre Story videos inside my post on Internet Marketing Event Networking.)

Lee McIntyre says that he can implement the 31 Day 8 Step Profit Plan he teaches inside the Instant Internet Lifestyle course in less than a month.

But can you and I do it? Can you do exactly what Lee does as fast as he does it?

Maybe.

I usually take longer than most people when I first learn things.

But if it takes us two or even four times as long that will still be pretty fast considering the fact that most people spend years before they really learn internet marketing and make any money online.

2. I most definitely like the price of the course.

The wealth of information it contains, the insights and experience Lee shares surpasses courses with ten to a hundred times the price tag.

It’s really an unbelievable bargain. Remember that people have originally paid $997 for the information it contains.

I have purchased the course and endorse it based on actually going through all the materials inside of it. This review is real.

Please let me know what you think about this review and about the course as portrayed here.

What to do next? At least one but very important thing:

Make a comment and share this information by tweeting about it and bookmarking it.

Wealthy Affiliate University Rip-off Gives Internet Marketing Black Eye

Is Wealthy Affiliate unethical? Is it an outright scam or rip-off? You be the judge. The FTC should pay attention to what Wealthy Affiliate is doing too.

This is a true story that has just happened to me and which may happen to you as well if you don’t read on.

I want to warn everybody so that Wealthy Affiliate University doesn’t take advantage of you as the company will certainly do this to everybody who is not aware of their greed and their disregard for their customers which they aren’t ashamed to rob.

If you purchase their subscription for a year like I have and have no desire to renew it the following year they will without any notice charge you for another year.

That wouldn’t be so bad if you could get a refund.

But Wealthy Affiliate will refuse to give you any refund even if you ask for it the same day they charged you for yet another year.

They bill in advance and will laugh at you if you tell them that you aren’t using their service and have no desire to do so in the future.

They will keep your money and will blame you for not reading their disclaimer which they point out to as saying that they don’t give any refunds.

This is how the Wealthy Affiliate contradicts itself in their disclaimer which I quote excerpts of:

..”If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the services of COMPANY after receipt of any services or electronic digital goods, COMPANY will work with you to try and resolve the issue.” …

“Under no circumstance does COMPANY provide refunds to dissatisfied customers”… “refund requests shall be ignored”…

You can read the full disclaimer here. Update July 22, 2018: The disclaimer page is no longer on there site so I removed the link to it because the link was now redirected to a page in which they promote themselves.

I have not read the disclaimer when I singed up and I bet that most people don’t. This is where the company hides and what they rely on.

After reading this you can form your own opinion but I doubt that you will want to deal with a company that contradicts itself saying that it will work with you to try and resolve the issue in one paragraph and that refund requests shall be ignored in another.

If this was a physical product it would still be refunded by any ethical merchant.

But Wealthy Affiliate is a membership site.

If you don’t use it at the start of the new subscription year and never intend to use it, what are they charging for? To see that there have been other cases of this blatant rip-off by Wealthy Affiliate you can view the Rip Off Report site.

Where is the FTC? Perhaps they should intervene in cases like this instead of trying to protect people from obvious scams.

Is Wealthy Affiliate University a scam? If so it is a well hidden one so far. The judgment is up to you and what I think is my qualified opinion.

You can check the Scam dot com forum if you haven’t done so by clicking on the link above to see what people say about the company. It is not always a favorable assessment.

I could understand if they didn’t refund a monthly charge but they are charging me against my will for the whole year.

Wealthy Affiliate is raking in money that doesn’t belong to them.

(But you wouldn’t suspect that if you read what Kyle of Wealthy Affiliate says about ethical internet marketing. Update July 22, 2018:That page was also removed from their site so I removed the link to it. He certainly knows the theory. What his company practices is vastly different from it).

Your credit card company isn’t likely to help you get your money back either.

It didn’t help me because the payment went through paypal first. The credit card company told me to contact paypal.

Paypal has canceled the subscription but says it may not be able to get the money back. They promised to file a dispute claim and they have done so right away. What a great attitude as compared to Wealthy Affiliate disservice.

(UPDATE: May 23, 2010 Paypal has decided in my favor. I hope that the people at Wealthy Affiliate University will cough up the money that they took from meĀ  without getting a heart attack. I detest their practices but wish no ill to them as long as they treat people without underhanded tactics to separate them from their hard earned money).

Wealthy Affiliate and their kind need to be listed in Better Business Bureau as offenders and people users. I have told them that I would make sure they are in hopes that they would return the ill gotten money. But they just laughed at me.

Apparently they don’t care so I will keep my promise to warn others about their rip-off tactics.

What do you think of Wealthy Affiliate and the way they treat people?

Have you had any terrible experience like this with them or any other company?

What have you done to defend yourself? What would you do in this case?

Please comment and bookmark and tweet this story to warn others. If you have a blog, link to this story and post about it. People must be warned and hopefully the regulators will notice too.
