Maverick Money Makers Club – A Review You Must Read
Over the past year or so, I’ve been hearing about Maverick Money Makers and mostly hearing good things. So I did some digging around to see if I could find any dirt on this program.
Hopefully, if it was any good then I might find one or two bad reviews about it from people who signed up and didn’t give it a fair chance. This is common with nearly all programs.
I had to steer clear of the product whores who would promote anything good or bad for the love of money.
I found the reviews to be quite mixed – some found Maverick Money Makers to provide value and recommended it as “a great program for beginners” while some thought it was an outright rip off. I only chose reviews from actual members of the Maverick Money Makers program.
Personally, my main grouse with Maverick Money Makers is that its a membership site that costs a hefty $97/month. Not bad if you were getting half the stuff that’s available at Wealthy Affiliate for only $39/month. In any case, I think its heavily overpriced based on the reviews I found.
I was a member for about 5 months, and learned a lot of little tricks, but when I implemented them I have either gotten my account suspended, the methods didn’t work, some things on the sales page were missing on the inside.
His upsold CPA project is a naughty yet crafty way to fake a job offer for people who are looking for a job, fake an application process, then fake a rejection of the job, all so that you get the unsuspecting customers to put their name into an online conferencing/call center software to get paid $100 per lead.
My comments : I think this is unethical marketing and there’s more about this later on in this review.
The so-called “Mack Michaels” has apparently done something similar as a guy named Chris Lumb for former Incomegreed.com.
I’ll have to admit that Mack made his program look professional. He’s soft spoken. He’s got these videos that he personally guides you through and demos, but many of those methods are either outdated or downright don’t work. I’ve wasted a lot of time with them, but I pressed because I figured that I was doing something wrong, and I just had to keep pressing.
No, this one is a doozy. He is the ultimate conman, Twitter page and all, plus a customer service call center.
Some of the the techniques are useful such as learning how to domain forward with Go Daddy URL masking, but others just don’t work period. So technically, you the customer, are the Guinea Pig for his methods. You’re paying $97/month to be his experiment versus being the ultimate guru that he says he is and teaching you methods that have been working forever.
On the same thread:
Yes, Maverick Money Makers teaches some pretty shady tactics, including spamming forums.
Stay far, far away from this one indeed.
My comments: I found on the Warrior Forum a thread that supports the notion that Maverick Money Makers teaches spamming forums. I’m not sure why but maybe his instructions on how to do forum marketing aren’t clear and might have been misinterpreted by members.
I was a member for 3 months, and stayed a member only because of the claims made by mack for the new content coming soon, every time though, the content was not that special and is deffenitly not easy to make money with. Finally cancelled my reccuring payments, and will invest in alot better things with more value and less cost – MMM not reccomended by myself
And this on the same thread:
I have been a member of MMM for less than a month now and have to say that I have learned quite a bit. He is off on some things like the ebay video and calling Forex the stock market, but there is a lot of good information there.
Having said that; the main page shows proof of money made with MillNic – quite a lot of money – but there is nothing in the club about that company and making money with them. The last video says that he wont try to up sell you and that unlike others the club is all that you need. When you sign up you are up sold the VIP membership for $47 more a month and the Project CPA for 1/2 off if you are a VIP member.
I have been thinking about the Project CPA and they tell me “Project CPA is about various click per action campaigns.” This is very different from what you say above.
I have learned a lot from MMM and I [am] hoping to learn more about making money with companies like MillNic and Neverblue using PPC
i was a member for a while and honestly i think many of the things taught in the program were outdated. i rushed out to try to sell affiliate program with PPC and lost some money.. i wouldn’t recommend it.
And on the same thread:
I became a member but I didn’t really like some of the strategies taught from a moral point of view. I don’t know if he is still doing this. It was something to do with getting people to respond to an add for a fake job and then booking an online meeting room. I really didn’t like the idea of doing this. Just didn’t feel right to waste people’s time and raise their hopes.
Being Unethical Destroys A Good Thing
You have to be careful not only about the types of programs you choose to purchase online but how you market and treat the unsuspecting. Because lets face it, the majority of people that surf the internet probably don’t know what an affiliate link looks like and they most likely don’t know the tactics marketers use.
As mentioned in a couple of the above reviews, Mack Michaels teaches a method where he promotes a CPA product that pays $100 per lead. Good money that is. So come up with a smart strategy for promoting the product.
That product is Go To Meeting® and the “smart strategy” Michaels came up with was to get people to respond to a fake job. With the way the economy is, with all the layoffs and stuff, going this far is slimy enough.
Why go there? Oh yeah, the money.
It only gets worse for the unfortunate job applicant. Michaels would have him book an online meeting using Go To Meeting® – an online conference call software. At this point the job applicant is out some cash with no job in sight. The $100 commission is already credited.
This has caused Citrix Online – the makers of Go To Meeting® - to put a statement on their website saying that they’re not affiliated with Maverick Money Makers.
Part of the statement says:
Citrix Online is committed to the highest business and ethical standards and to giving our customers an excellent experience with our products. We have no affiliation whatsoever with Maverick Money Makers or any of their programs nor do we approve of their business practices.
When stuff like this is said about you, I won’t want to be affiliated with you either. I won’t recommend Maverick Money Makers just because of something like this.
From the reviews, I would say that Maverick Money Makers is not a scam and you may get some value out of it. The instructions may not be all that clear for a novice and not necessary for the advanced marketer.
I however think that teaching a method involving some shady practice involving Go To Meeting®, this is something to stay away from. I’d rather you learn how to make money online from ethical marketers, not someone who would put aside their values just to make a little (or a lot of) money.
I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate over Maverick Money Makers because:
* Wealthy Affiliate is more affordable at $39/month – MMM costs $97/month.
* Wealthy Affiliate is a more complete membership site with more tools, more resources and quality support. MMM doesn’t have a website builder or free webhosting.
