I do a lot of product reviews here on One More Cup of Coffee, and in my research, I see a lot of the same sites pop up in the top search results. Some are legit, some aren't. Nancy Fox from NancyReviews.com is NOT.
She does what a lot of other sites do; they find new, hot “make money products”, write a positive review of them, and make money off the commissions.
Wait now, I don't have a problem with someone writing a positive review of something they have actually tried, and honestly recommend. In fact, there are plenty of review sites that like products I don't like – but they write honest, informative reviews, and I can understand why someone could recommend them, even though I don't.
My issue with NancyReviews.com is that she is recommending outright scams and people are putting their trust in her recommendations. This review is not meant to be a personal attack on her, but it is meant to expose her dishonest reviews for what they are.
All Positive Recommendations
Scroll though her blog and see how many negative reviews she has. TWO out of 23 reviews received a score of less than 7. One was a survey taking program, and the other was recruiting for online work. 100% of internet marketing products received a positive review.
We have done a lot of the same reviews. Let's compare.
Get Auto Commissions Nancy: 9/10 | Me: 11/100
Tube Cash Code Nancy: 9/10 | Me: SCAM
Who Likes Money Nancy: 9/10 | Me: Product Undelivered
6 Figure Tool Kit Nancy: 8/10 | Me: 10/100
Commission Buddy Nancy: 8/10 | Me: 10/100
(since writing this review, there are a couple more, but you get the idea)
Hype and Misleading Titles
First, take a look at the titles of her posts. Nearly every one is called “product scam”, or “product exposed.
By the title of this one, you would think that there was some shocking information that she has, or that there was something you absolutely needed to know before you buy!
Unfortunately, you can see it ranks 9/10, and if you read the review, there is nothing new or unique about what she says – it's basically a breakdown of what's in the members area and how “awesome” (sarcasm) the DC Faucet's product is.
Here are screenshots from video thumbnails on three of her YouTube videos.
From these thumbnails, you would think that she was going to tell you about a scam. But she doesn't. One is simply a software walkthrough, and the others are silent screencasts of her written review, which doesn't make sense. Why would you post a video of your written review with no speaking? I fact, it makes so little sense, I will embed the video here so you can see how ridiculous it is.
She Doesn't Tell You About Discounts
99% of these types of internet marketing products will give you a discount if you try to click away. They want to make a sale at all costs. If you don't buy it for $97, they'll sell it for $57. Sometimes, if you click the “leave” button enough times, you can get it for $1, or even free.
I was able to purchase Who Likes Money for $7 (above shown as $49). I was able to purchase Get Auto Commissions for $9 (shown below).
So why wouldn't she tell you about these discounts? It's certainly not because she doesn't know about them!
Misinformation and Misleading Content
The last thing you need to know is that some of the information she posts on her blog is downright false. Remember that just because someone is selling something online, doesn't mean they have checked, or even care whether it's legal or not.
I reviewed George Brown's Predator this year, which was essentially using software that illegally collects email addresses from around the internet and sends them unsolicited messages about how to make money online.
In Nancy Fox's review of Tube Cash Code, the following conversation happened in the comment section.
If you don't know how this product works, you basically use software to automatically upload videos to YouTube, and put affiliate links in their descriptions. Not only is this a terrible strategy for making money online, downloading other people's content from YouTube and re-uploading it as your own is strictly against their TOS and will get your account banned. If you step on the wrong toes, you might even get slapped with a DMCA complaint and get into legal trouble (though rare, it does happen).
It's clear that Nancy has not done the proper research into the products she promotes, and she does very little to provide her readers with the information they need to make informed buying decision. Many of the products she promotes and gives high scores are low-quality, and some of them are downright scams.
There are many ways to make money on the internet. The way I make money is to create niche websites and sell products from affiliate companies. This means I don't have to keep an inventory, don't' have to deal with customer support, and have the freedom to create a website about any topic I want.
Yes, you need a website. And yes, you have to spend some money to get started. If you are looking for a free, quick, easy way to cash in on the internet, you are out of luck.
But if you are serious about putting in some time and work to start your own online business, I suggest you take my 5 day email course to learn how I make money from my websites, and how you can get started.
