Product Name: Foolproof Cash Flow
Product Owner: William Oviedo
What is it?
Foolproof Cash Flow is a video course that promises to teach you how to make money online by researching and copying other websites.
Foolproof Cash Flow is just another useless course teaching outdated methods. What Will teaches here can’t even be considered marketing. It’s just copying what others do and hoping it will work for you.
Before You Buy
One of the things that confused me about this course was the actual price. On the purchase page it shows a price of $97 (of course that has been slashed down from $197) But when I went to Paypal to make my purchase it was actually $47.
Not that being charged less is bad but it shows the lack of consistency and overall business smarts this courses creator has to offer.
Another thing that got my attention was Will’s mailing list. On his sales page (like any other sales page) Will tries to collect email subscribers, so he can market to them later. This is all completely normal.
What’s not normal though is this;
Again, this shows the lack of actual business smarts this person has. I would never buy a product that teaches marketing from someone who cannot market himself properly.
What I liked
I liked the fact that this course was made up entirely of video. It’s much easier to learn from someone when you can see what they're doing, instead of just hearing them say it. Will was easy to hear and he did a great job explaining himself.
Research is always smart
The idea of researching your competition is smart. Finding a website that’s successful in a field you want to be successful in – then reverse engineering, is a great way to get an idea of what you need to do.
Thanks for the sneak peek
I always like courses that give you a free trial or at least a glimpse of what is offered. When a product, or course owners does this it makes the decision to purchase (or not) much easier.
In this case, I was able to see exactly what this course had to offer and therefore was able to save money.
What I didn’t like
In addition to the things I noticed when I tried to buy this product, there's some other things that helped me make my decision to give this course its rating.
Any product that says there is a specific formula to making money online raises a few red flags, for me personally. There is no set way to make money online, there’s unlimited possibilities.
For whatever reason though, Will seems convinced that his method is the only money making method available on the internet. Thankfully, he’s wrong.
Support with Foolproof Cash Flow is very limited. It’s not surprising that a course like this would have limited support though. But you should be aware that any real questions you have, will go unanswered.
The information in this course is quite dated. A couple years have gone by since Will has recorded the videos.
It might not seem like much, but things can change a lot online over the course of two years. This is especially true for search engines, which play a major role in Foolproof Cash Flow’s system.
This entire course is based on finding your competitor's ‘link profile' and copying it.
A site’s link profile is made up by all the other sites that link to it. The idea is; once you have all the same links your competitor has, Google will give you the same placement and traffic. This is a terrible idea for a number of reasons.
- There is no way to gain the exact link profile of another site without breaking Google’s terms of service. Once you do that, Google can (and will) remove you from the search results, which leaves you in worse shape than when you started.
- Search engines are much smarter now, than they were two years ago. If you create a link profile identical to another site, they will know, probably immediately.
- You don’t need to have the same amount of links, or even the same type of links your competitor has. What you really need is a diverse link profile that’s relevant to you and your site.
When you build a real business online the point is to eliminate competition. Not copy it.
Do you think Steve Jobs Built the iPod by copying someone else or spying on the competition? Of course not. Competition was the furthest thing from his mind at the time.
Take it from me, the only people that make a real income online are the ones being copied. Not the copycats.
If you want to build a business online that other people will envy, do what I did. You can blaze your own path with the help and support of an entire community.
