What is it?
Actually, Mobile Game Money is a niche site creator that specifically targets the mobile gaming niche.
The promotion for Mobile Game Money makes it sound like you are tapping into the mobile market without doing much work at all, but this isn’t the case. Instead, you end up with a niche site that doesn’t target a very good niche. As the disclaimer for the product notes, most people using it don’t make money – and realistically, the product is a waste of time and money.
Before You Buy
Watch out for reviews on this product. There are a huge number of positive reviews for Mobile Game Money, and they seem to be from affiliates of the company. In fact, many of the reviewers don’t even seem to know what the product even was or how it was supposed to work.
It fact, Mobile Game Money is a recently released product, and already all of the scam review sites are talking about it. For example, Nancy Reviews talks about how wonderful the product is, even though she doesn't really say what is involved in it at all.
As a general rule, you should always be careful about positive reviews of any product, particularly when the review uses vague language and doesn’t really tell you anything about the product.
What I Liked
I will say that I found the sales video amusing. I’m not sure ‘liked’ is the right word, but at least it’s entertaining – I just wish it had a pause button.
What I Didn’t Like
The sales video is just completely ridiculous. Personally, I think the voiceover sounds like some over-dramatic movie announcer – and really the video is more like a short movie than it is actually a sales pitch.
I will say that the sales video looks pretty and impressive, which is more than most sales videos out there. Don’t be fooled though. Some bad products have fantastic sales videos, and some good products don’t even have a sales video to speak of.
Realistically, very little in the video makes sense.
To start off with, the site starts off by saying that the video will be deleted in 45 minutes…
Then that it may be deleted in 24 hours…
Do you see the inconsistency? Then there is this entire speech about how the technique is super-secret, and should never have been released to the public. In fact, this is one of the oldest internet marketing tricks.
Basically, if a product owner can make you feel like you are one of the lucky few and that you only have a limited time to actually make the decision, you are more likely to buy the product. After all, people tend to make bad decisions when they are making them in a hurry.
It’s also worth noting that most of the time, the video gives you absolutely no indication of what the product is or how it is supposed to earn money. You just get a couple of lists about what the product doesn’t contain.
The entire video is little more than a rags to riches story, telling you how you can share the narrator’s good fortune and use his ‘amazing secret’ to make fantastic money online. In reality, you can find a very similar story on most ‘guru’ websites, and most product scams start off this way.
Personally, if I’m going to buy a product, I don’t care about how well it worked for the person selling it, I want to know what it is going to do for me. In particular, I want to know what the product actually does and how it works, not just images of what my life could look like.
Most of the time, if a person or a company can’t tell you how their products work, then their product is little more than a scam.
In fact, Mobile Game Money itself says that most users don't make money from the product.
I don’t know about you, but if the system is as good as the narrator claims, then I would think that everyone using it would make money. The fact that they don’t suggests that it really is a lost cause.
Here’s a final thought. In the video, the narrator comments that he couldn’t work out how the gurus were making money online. I can tell exactly how the gurus do it, the same way as the narrator is for this product. Most internet marketing gurus (if you want to use that term) make money by conning people into buying a product that isn’t worth their money – and they do it using sales videos like this one.
Mobile Game Money is part of the ClickSure marketplace. This is actually a really big indication of the quality of the product.
Now, you might have heard about ClickBank. A lot of the poor quality internet marketing products are hosted on ClickBank, and honestly, you have to go quite a way to find a decent product on there. However, ClickBank does have standards, and the service won’t host products that are outright scams.
ClickSure on the other hand appears to have no standards at all, and sometimes ends up hosting the products that ClickBank doesn’t. Additionally, ClickSure is outside of the United States, so it isn’t bound by the laws that say products actually have to sell what they claim to.
Many people also find that they have problems making payments to ClickSure or getting refunds, because of the way that the company is offshore.
The video for this product is pretty high quality, but that doesn’t apply to other parts of the site. In particular, there are multiple cases where the grammar is really bad. For example, when I tried to click away from the sales page, I got the following message:
The grammar on this is so bad that it’s actually difficult to tell what the writer is trying to say.
Now, I understand having a few grammar or spelling problems on a site with 50 or 100 different articles, but Mobile Game Money only has a handful of pages and most of them don’t have much on them.
You would think that the product owner would take the time to actually get everything right before trying to sell the product.
The Actual Product
Basically, Mobile Game Money is just a niche site creator, where you end up setting up a website where you promote some games that people play on mobile devices. The concept is that you will attract mobile gamers, and make money that way.
This means that you aren’t really tapping into the mobile market at all.
Now, mobile games might be a profitable field, but that largely applies to people developing the games. Even then, you still have to get lucky and actually get a game that is popular.
The thing is, Mobile Game Money has you promoting games and getting income through ads and through commissions.
This is actually a really ineffective approach, because mobile games is not a good niche for newbies to choose. Developing a niche website that targets nerds or gamers is always going to be difficult, because this group is very good at technology and comparison shopping. There are a lot of free resources already available online, by people without monetary incentives. This niche is not impossible to crack, but it takes some experience in both online marketing AND in the mobile gaming world.
Even though mobile games are popular, there are few people who will buy them off independent websites. Instead, they will use websites to get reviews, then purchase from the official website or app store.
Mobile Game Money is just another attempt to part you from your money, without really offering the potential for you to make money online. There is money to be made in the mobile game market, but without the work, a willingness to fail, and effective training, cashing in on it won't be easy. This product is heavily hyped, very vague and it really isn’t worth the time.
Making money from a niche website is an effective approach, but Mobile Game Money’s way of achieving this is really not effective. Not only is it a bad niche to choose (particularly for a beginner), but the product doesn’t really teach you anything about internet marketing or SEO, so you are left high and dry.
A much better option is to join an online business community, like Wealthy Affiliate, where you can get training in making money online, as well as all of the advice and support that you need.
Most products like this last just a few short months then disappear. That's the nature of hype in the business of making money online.
The only system I've seen last more than a decade is the same place where I learned how to start an online business. They've been around teaching newbies to make money online since 2006. You can join for free and start your first website in the next couple minutes
