What is it?
Copy Paste Income is a course, made up of mostly videos that are housed in a membership area. The training is supposed to help you create a business online by creating what Ewen calls mini ebooks, and then promoting them online.
In this case, I really think the title says it all; there is no such thing as a “copy and paste” business. What Ewen has here is a simple plan to create and promote simple short ebooks online. It is not a real business and I seriously doubt if anyone has ever made one-single-dollar using this method. I suggest you save your money and avoid this product.
Before You Buy
This is not the first time I’ve reviewed Ewen Chia’s products. In fact I’ve reviewed several of them. Sadly, Copy Paste Income is the best one so far, but that’s not really saying much.
His other products include Super Affiliate Millionaire, which got a rating of 0 out of 100.
The next one is a little better but not much. It’s called Autopilot Profits and it only received a 2 out of 100.
His third product, Commission Money Machine got a 15 out of 100.
These ratings are some of the worst I’ve ever given. So as you can see, Ewen’s products are definitely not created with quality in mind.
Perhaps he is hoping to get better with each new product. I certainly hope that’s the case. But for now, I can’t imagine anyone being happy spending their hard-earned money on Ewen’s products.
What I Liked
Surprisingly there are a couple things I liked about Copy Paste Income.
The layout of members area is one of the things I really liked about this product. There are a lot of unnecessary links, but once you realize the top links are the important ones you’re good to go.
From there you will find that all the information is basically on one page. The videos are laid out, in order, from top to bottom. You simply watch one then scroll down to watch the next.
It’s a very simple layout with just enough color and imagery to keep from looking dull and not too much to overpower the important stuff, which is the information in the videos.
Ewen's advice is to create simple ebooks in small niches (markets). Within the ebook you can have links to affiliate products, which you will earn a commission for when you sell them.
Once you create the ebook you promote it through social media, your website…basically anywhere you can.
But what makes Ewen's advice so solid is the fact that he advises you to do plenty of research so you can find a market that needs an ebook solution.
Ewen talks about using free tools such as Google's keyword planner, Google trends and even searching through social media and forums that are associated with that niche.
This really is good advice. It's not quite as easy as it sounds, but these are things you're going to have to learn no matter what you do online.
All things considered, the information Ewen gives in his course is pretty solid. It might be a little basic, but its good information that any beginning marketer will need to know.
What I Didn't Like
This product had a lot of the traits that quality products tend to have: it was a video course, the members area was nice, the price was high enough to make me assume it wouldn’t be total garbage.
I wanted to like this product. I really did. Unfortunately there were too many flaws to make it a quality product worth recommending to you.
When you look at other products online — ones with good quality — a price tag of $37 isn’t much. However, when you finally get inside Ewen Chia’s Copy Paste Income course you’ll see that it is dramatically overpriced.
Here’s an image from the sales page.
Actually, no. No I don’t agree that it worth $37 to waste my time on junky product. People tend to think that refunds solve everything. They don’t.
They might be able to give your money back, but what about your time and frustration?
Too Many Additional Offers
In the members are you will see a lot of links on the left side, in the navigation. There is a total of 24 links in that left menu, but only four of them relate to the original product.
The rest of those links are upsells to additional offers where Ewen asks you to make yet another purchase.
These products range in price from $17 to $117. It’s almost as if Ewen created this entire members area as a way to funnel buyers to all these additional products. I have a feeling that when you buy one of those, you’re faced with even more upsells.
It’s All Theory
The real problem with this course is that the information inside is all theory. It’s not wrong, but it’s not exactly right either. As I said earlier, it’s solid information. But if you buy a light bulb from me and I tell you it’s “It’s a light bulb.” that’s sold information too.
The problem is there are a lot of variables to consider.
Yes, it is a light bulb. But you need the thing to work when you get home.
What if you drop the box of bulbs on your way out the door after check out; what if those particular bulbs are defective; what if your ladder doesn’t reach the ceiling; what if it’s the wrong bulb entirely?
Yes these are quirky little scenarios but that’s how things work. There is a lot more to consider besides “Yep, it’s a light bulb”.
So in theory Ewen’s information is good, but when it comes time to implement that information you are going to face a million little things you never even thought about. Lack of continued training and personal support means a lot of folks will simply look at the product a few times and quit at the first hurdle they run into.
Why 35/100? Honestly, as far as Chia's products go, this one is the best of the bunch, so I really wanted to give it a good score. However, I had a really negative experience in the members area with all the upsells. I also felt like the product wasn't very “complete”, and didn't provide enough information to help people succeed.
Without a website, traffic, and a marketing plan, these mini-ebooks are just going to sit there on your desktop, if you ever start writing them in the first place! Many of you will end up spending even more money on PLR junk and low-quality traffic exchanges simply because there isn't a solid marketing plan in place for you.
There is nothing to copy and paste in this product! Also, it's important that you understand that CPI covers just one aspect of online business. However, it's only one tactic — not a full business plan! It is one small piece of a much bigger picture. Without an existing business, website, or sales funnel, you can't actually profit from learning what they are trying to teach.
