PROGRAMME REVIEW: drivenrapidwealth.com

Yet another good place where you can advertise your opps.


Well, looks like it is being run by the SFIpay folks, so not a small time shop operation.

But it is also a profit sharing programme. Most start ok and then fizzle in a few months. But this one has shares (ad packages) that expire once they reach 200% ROI. So this one may last longer.

And it seems that they have been around since last December. Most other profit sharing programmes have crashed within two to three months (mainly because the shares never expired and so the percent earned each day kept going down and down until folks lost interest and this is not the case here).

They accept their own Pay Processor SFIPay, AlertPay, and e-gold.

The reason I have joined is in order to advertise my other opps (PlugInProfits, JustFollowOurLead, Millionaire Project and my own blog) rather than as a money making opportunity.

But you can do both. I expect it to last at least another couple of months, maybe more.

I'll leave you to go to the site yourself and click on the Plans link to see how you get paid and what type of advertising packages they have. The min. cost of an ad package is ten dollars. Oh and you are limited to purchasing one Ad Package per day (and it expires at some point).

PS: If you need an SFIPay account? Use this link (it's free to sign up): https://www.sfipay.com?r=111463

For Alert Pay use this link: http://www.alertpay.com/?%2bpZkIQlzxSzMBXhfdP0Iiw%3d%3d
For e-gold go to http://e-gold.com

WARNING: When you click on the Join link you will be asked to buy an Ad Pack right away. They range from $10 to $50 so be clear on that first. Also makes sure that you choose the CORRECT Pay processor as the only way to correct that later on is to contact support and ask them to delete your account so you can start over. I made that mistake. But support got back to me within minutes. Am a happy camper.


Are you tired of all the hype as I am? Do you have to delete upwards of 100 e-mails a day? I am. And on top of that my junk filter captures an additional 300+ emails a day!

And all of those e-mails you get about some opp or other? You can spot that they are being insincere right off, at least I can. Why? Because they all start like a sales pitch. Instead of being personal. Instead of addressing my concerns directly.

You can tell when you are getting a personal e-mail. Can't you?

That's how I can spot those e-mails from my readers that are honest inquiries or comments. They are not composed. They are not slick. They address me in the first person and directly. They mention my name. They are frank. They are not trying to push something. See the difference?

So that's what you need to do to be more successful at recruiting folks. The e-mails or adverts that you will compose will have to be as personal as possible. Don't write an e-mail that addresses anyone in particular, or the crowd.

Write one that seems as personal as possible. And make it into an editorial. Not a sales letter. Pretend you are writing an editorial review of the opportunity you are wanting them to join (secretly). Truly review it! That's what folks want to see! They DON'T want a sales letter. Sales letters get the DELete trigger finger! And right away.

Then there are those folks on the 'net that send you an e-mail every friggin' day! Sure some of what they say is maybe useful, but to get an e-mail every single day? That just trains me to hit that DEL button on every single post from them! Am sure it's true for you as well!

I've even started to unsubscribe from many of those so-called Internet Gurus! Most of which are not!

Well, enough of my griping for today! Enjoy your day!

Fast-Track Your Journey to Home Business Success

Copyright © Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy

Do you sometimes wish that life was a little easier? Well, it can be if you get on the fast-track. Today's article
reveals how to shortcut your path to home business success.

No one has ever logged onto the Internet for the first time and started pocketing dollars in a really short period of time. As with all things in life, there is a learning curve.


Just a few short years ago, I was a working stiff just like you.

One day, I bought and read a book called "Multiple Streams of Income" by bestselling author, Robert Allen. Immediately, I began my journey.

Every night after work and after my wife and children went to sleep, I would get online and explore different ways of using the Internet to make money.

In the two years that followed, I spent over $10,000 racking up credit card debt buying eBooks, membership sites, special reports, opt-in leads, and joining every "guru" recommended business opportunity that flew into my email inbox.

I stayed up learning, working, and drinking coffee until 5:00 in the morning, month after month filled with the hope of making money online.

In my third year of working part-time to build a home based income, I finally broke through and earned over $100,000 in just twelve months from the Internet.


Research the lives of all of the "gurus." The one thing that you will learn is that my own experience is not unique. Most of the high earners on the Internet experienced a learning curve very similar to my own.

Chances are that your curve will also be similar to mine, but it is my hope that you can get to the top faster than even I did. Three years was a long time to struggle, but every ounce of struggle was worth the reward I have finally received.

In order to shorten your own learning curve, you must do a few things differently than the rest of us did. You must become the master of your learning curve.


There is only one way to shorten the curve on the Internet:

You must plan to succeed!

Here is the deal. Most people put up a freebie website and select a few affiliate programs to add to their website. Right out of the gate, most people are running for the finish line without any real plan in mind.

After a few short weeks, people begin to see the writing on the wall that says, "This is going to be a long hard road."

People check their hit counters daily for six weeks before they realize that getting traffic to their free site is going to be tough.

At this point, they begin developing their first batch of advertising. Then they spend countless months finding places to show their advertisements for free. Some make an even more drastic mistake by blowing thousands of hard earned dollars on their new and untested ads.

These are the people who will learn the facts of life the hard way.

In time, they will learn how to make their advertising work for them, but most will earn very little money from their affiliate programs.

At this point in the learning curve, most people throw up their hands and walk away from their dreams in utter disgust. Instead of a walking away point, this should have convinced the struggling online entrepreneur that they were simply traveling the wrong road.


From day one, you must begin to learn about the nuances of web promotion. Read everything you can get your hands on. Don't just read the hype, back it up with the opinions of others who have reviewed the same programs before you came along. Learn from their mistakes and successes.

As you begin to learn, you must also look to make a decision. Do you want to step into a pre-built program that is designed to help you to succeed, OR do you want to create a completely new program of which you are the sole owner?

If you decide to step into a pre-designed and complete turn-key online money-making venture, then you must select the right venture to step into. If this is your decision, I encourage you to check out the Plug In Profit Site at:

If you decide to go the journey on your own, then do all of the necessary research, planning and preparation that is needed for your success.


Decide what you think you would want to do, and then figure out how your planned site will generate a real income.

Internet old-timers know about hundreds of corporation domains that existed with IPO millions, but did not have an actual money plan that could sustain their business model. Most of these companies were among the hundreds of companies that bellied up in the 2000 dot bomb experience.

Don't blindly believe in your plan. Research others on the web who have undertaken similar business models and see if they have survived. Study your competitors in depth to learn what is working for them and what did not work for them. To better understand what has or has not worked for competitor websites, check out their time lapsed progressions using the Wayback Machine: http://web.archive.org

Once you have determined your money plan, then you should undertake the development of a business plan and a marketing plan. Utilize professional assistance if you need to do so. While creating your plans, make a determination as to which domain name you think would be best, then register it along with a hosting account. You can do this at Host4Profit in Step 2 on this page: www.PlugInProfitSite.com/main-20136/freesetup.html

Once you have developed your business plan and marketing plan and have run them through several revisions, then it will be time to buy your domain name and to begin work with a site designer and developer. You may need to have your domain sitting on a web host for your site developer, but this is not always necessary. While they are doing their work, enlist a copywriter to help you with your site sales copy.

When your site designer and developer have your site working, you should then undertake significant testing to make sure everything works as planned. It is much harder to fix problems on a operational site than it is to fix problems on a site that has yet to be launched.

When testing is done, then you should fill in your sales copy and then shoot for launch. Of course, you already have a marketing plan in place, so your preparation here will be simply a matter of putting the pieces of the puzzle into place.

You are finally ready to open for business. Don't be afraid to spend the money to bring your dream alive. Time can replace money in the goal of starting a profitable online business, but money invested can shave years off of your company's growth.

PRGORAMME REVIEW: expressoffshorefunds.com

These folks are using an HYIP script from GoldCoders.com. Is it even registered? Let's check: expressoffshorefunds.com - NOT Licensed

WOW! This is unethical! If the Admin would stoop to buy (or get for fee) an unlicensed script that only costs about $95 (or $145 for the one with more features like Mass Pay) and is willing to cheat the script writers out of their revenue? How can one then trust the programme that they are running?

I don't think I have to do any further research on this one. But I will mention that from 8% to 15% DAILY return is.... ridiculous. Stick to the programmes that give you up to 20% or 25% a month, like the two that I have introduced to you recently. See Blog Page -17.

PRORGRAMME REVIEW: http://www.weallwin.net/?blablabla

I thank the reader who sent me this one for review. No offense to the reader. We need to have more reviews like this one so folks can be guide rightly.

This programme was described to me by the promoter (blablabla) as being just like 10DollarsWonder and further because it is new I'd make more commissions, daily than at 10DollarsWonder.

Well I have to disagree. It is not at all "just like" 10DollarsWonder. This one is a profit sharing scheme just like all the rest that failed quickly (within a month or two). 10DollarsWonder is not a profit sharing (pool sharing) operation. At 10dw you get ten cents for each cycle of each share (in a matrix). And each share cycles several times each day. So it is not directly based on the size of the pool.

Finally, 10DollarsWonder has been cycling for over a year now. And has thousands of members who recruit new members and also buy new shares constantly. How can a startup like weallwin beat that out of the starting gate? It can't. And so I'd rather continue to buy shares at 10dw and also promote it so that it will be around for yet another couple of years or more. You can't say that for this new starter.

Here is what the Admin says on the weallwin site just for your information.


Would you like to earn a daily income?
Would you like that income to be able to grow bigger and bigger?
Well this site is going to provide you with a daily income and give you the ability to make it grow.
The way you do it is easy, first you buy a few positions or shares asI like to call them, each position or share allows you to earn an equal percentage or commission of the daily income on the site.
As you accumulate your earnings you either rebuymore positions with your earnings or you withdraw your earnings.
The way you grow your daily income is you rebuy with your earnings new positions this allows you to earn more and in a little time you can be earning $100's every day.
We pay out 80% of site income back to members each day. (js: So Admin takes 20% as Admin fee, that’s pretty high.)
Don't be misguided this is a real opportunity that can make you lot of money.

Addendum: just learned from Blondie that the Admin of weallwin spammed her blog (via multiple comments) and here is one of them that she left in there so folks can see it:



Well, isn’t that interesting? Admins that stoop to these tactics.... are not to be trusted. I myself was even reluctant to talk about this technique, and asked folks that if they were to use it... to post a comment that is RELEVANT to the blog post! And clearly this one is NOT. Besides, YELLLING is not good Internet etiquette, as most of us would agree.

So my conclusion is that this is not a very professional operation and Admin will use any and all techniques to gain signups. This is an unscrupulous behavior.

So, in one word? Avoid.

Starting Your Home Based Business On A Shoestring Budget

Copyright © Stone Evans, The Home Biz Guy

Whether seeking a supplemental income or a full-time income,
many folks have undertaken the task to discover a viable home
based business solution to meet their personal needs.

For most folks who contemplate a home business, a low-cost or
no-cost solution is not only nice, but also very necessary. Many
also seek to find a home business that will permit them to
maintain their regular day job in order to protect their base

Taking the cautious approach to a home based business and
keeping one`s job during the start-up period is often a very
good decision. By maintaining one`s job, one can maintain the
health of their personal finances while permitting their home
business grow healthy and strong.

Fortunately, most home based businesses can be started with
little or no cash, can be maintained on a shoestring budget, and
can be operated successfully with only a part-time investment.

One day, the business will be strong enough to support itself
and its owner. When that time comes, it will make good sense for
the business owner to leave his or her outside job to dedicate
more time to growing and maintaining their new thriving home
based business. You will know when that time has finally arrived.

The nature of a home based business makes it easy and very
realistic for most folks to take the plunge into home business

Yet, many folks put off starting their own home based business,
because they have the misconception that they will have to risk
thousands of their own hard-earned dollars at start-up. Then
later, if their business fails, they fear they may be forced to
take out a second mortgage on their house just to stay out of

Are you one of these folks? Do you let your fears of failure
keep you from reaching for your dreams?

If so, then allow me to introduce you to a few home business
ideas that you can start for less than $100 and can be started
and operated very profitably as a part-time business.


First of all, let me advise you to search out a business model
that will deliver steady and repeat business. It is the one
thing --- above all others --- that will assure that your
company can survive the test of time.

Home-based mail order is a good example of how one can quickly
grow a home business income. Mail order is a low cost start-up
business that can be launched for around $100 USD.

With proper planning, your home-based mail order business will
not require up-front inventory purchases. In the mail order
business, it is not uncommon to rely upon drop-shippers for
product fulfillment services.

By utilizing drop-shippers, we can sell the products, collect
the money and then purchase the products from the wholesale
outlet. The wholesale outlet will then put a return address for
your company on the product packaging and deliver the product
directly to your customer.

Your primary expense in the mail-order business is advertising.
Classified advertising tends to be a relatively inexpensive form
of advertising with thousands of outlets available to the small
business owner.

Buy low --- sell high. You can acquire high quality,
top-of-the-line merchandise for a fraction of the retail cost.

Auctions can be an excellent source for buying cheap and selling
high. Both government auctions and Internet auctions can lead to
some excellent profit opportunities. Auctions are an excellent
tool for both acquiring and selling merchandise.

Crafts are a hot seller at country fairs, swap meets or anyplace
where people gather. Make your own crafts and sell them for a
tidy profit!

Selling information by mail is another good example of an
inexpensive home based business start-up. One can gain the
resale rights to information for usually about $50 USD. Other
costs will include printer cartridges, paper and postage. There
are plenty of free classifieds sites on the Internet, in which
to successfully advertise your information.

Write and publish your own informational booklets; sell them at
a high price! All you need is a little know-how, a printer,
paper and stamps. This is a GREAT home business idea! You can
also sell the resale rights to others, for extra profits. In
this age of the Internet, you may also take advantage of the
fact that selling information is one of the most profitable
endeavors one can pursue online.

Offer office services for hire in your local paper. You`ll be
surprised at the amount of regular office business that can be
gleaned from one little classified ad. Word processing, typing,
accounting, data entry, proofreading, transcription, promotional
letters and newsletters. All these tasks can be accomplished
right from your own home office.

Yes, Avon`s been around for eternity, hasn`t it? Then it`s not
such a bad prospect as a home based business, is it? I once knew
a woman who did so much business as an Avon rep. that she had
people calling her and knocking at her door wanting to order
products at all hours of the day and night! Once you are an
established Avon representative, you, too, will turn a good

On your search for the ideal home based business, try not to get
caught up in any scams that will run off with your money. There
are thousands of scam artists out there just waiting for the
next sucker to come along. Remember, if it sounds too good to be
true, then it probably is. Just use your good judgement and
invest wisely in proven methods of earning extra income.
