After getting like 50 emails promoting Ruthless Income product I decided to review the thing and show you what’s actually behind the scene. The sales video is all hype and doesn’t really reveal what the product is about, or what exactly you are going to be doing after you purchase Ruthless Income.
I didn’t have anything else better to do today so I figured I could write up something for you and give you the specs so to speak.
Creators: Jamie Lewis and Adeel Chowdhry
Price: $47 (or $37 if you close the page and use the discount)
Launch date: February 2012
Official Site: www.RuthlessIncome.com
Ruthless Income is sold through Clickbank and their sales video tells nothing. The only thing Jamie says in the video is that you too can make tons of money like he does 😉
Well, to be honest I almost wrote a negative review about this product but after a few minutes of browsing around I found some extra videos that made this review sort of neutral.
So first of all, I am going to show you their sales process and what you should expect after buying it before you reach the members area.
Ruthless Income Sales Funnel
After I paid $47 I was presented with an upsell for $247. It was another sales video of course and it offered so called “ready-made” campaigns. I am guessing those are affiliate campaigns but not sure because I haven’t bought it.
It also offered full support and everything you need to get them working.
If you pass on this offer you get a $147 downsell which I believe is for the same thing. I actually strongly recommend that you do not buy this upsell, because without knowing what the heck you are going to be doing it makes no sense for you to spend that kind of money.
The next upsell is for his one-on-one coaching and it’s also $247. Jamie knows his stuff so if you want to test him on the coaching offer go ahead.
After you hit the “No Thanks” link you will be redirected to the members area where you will find another upsell for a “free” website.
Do not get the free website because you will be sucked into another hosting bill. Basically the creators made a deal with a hosting company to get you signed up for their “free website”, but I can tell you from experience that these sites do not produce results like you would hope for. (It’s a waste of money if you ask me)
So now let’s look at the members area of the Ruthless Income product.
The first thing you are going to see is the “Welcome Video” from Jamie. Right below that he has a webinar video outlining different money making systems that you can use to generate income.
He talks about different methods such as:
– Making money selling domain names
– Freelance arbitrage
– Making money doing IM reviews
– Selling websites on flippa
– Becoming a vendor on Clickbank
– Selling stuff as an affiliate (list building and blogging)
By the way, right above the video there is link to register for his live Webinar that will happen on February 15th.
When you scroll down after watching the recorded webinar video you will see a section with “Special Bonus Videos”
I actually thought that those videos were the main product which kinda made me think like I was wasting my time here.
Basically the “Special Bonus” videos talk about real basic stuff like setting up your Aweber, Hostgator, and Godaddy account. Then he shows some Photoshop tricks and how he sells a website on Flippa.
After going through that I was like WTF?!
Then I realized that they were making changes while I was browsing the members area at the same time and the main videos were not visible.
Anyway, when you scroll down to the bottom you will see another section that looks like this:
They offer a built-in hosting solution for your blog (affiliate site). I guess you could redirect a domain name to it but if I were you I would setup my sites on separate hosting that I own. To be honest I wouldn’t use that option at all.
I like their little niche finder section that gives you ideas about different niches worth getting into.
And as you can see there 2 bonus downloads at the very bottom that have nothing to do with the main course.
So after refreshing the page a few times I finally saw the main videos. There are 2 modules and total of 3 videos. Jamie talks about stuff that works, but the problem I have is that he didn’t really give any actionable steps to implement it. Maybe that’s going to be talked about on the Webinar but so far the way it’s set up is not very user friendly.
I can see how people are going to get totally lost after buying this and won’t know what to do or how to get started.
By the way, if you already have some experience in IM then I am almost certain you won’t see any value in this. But you know what? A lot of people know about everything but they don’t actually do anything.
Anyway, when I thought I was done reviewing the thing I saw 2 links at the top of the members area that linked to “Extra videos”.
If I didn’t notice those 2 links to extra videos I would have given the Ruthless Income a negative review. When you click on them you get access to something like 90 videos.
The first page has over 50 webinar videos with some good value in them. I can see how newbies will benefit from them.
The second page has over 34 videos from his DVD sets where he talks about some of the methods from the main basic videos in more detail.
So what is my conclusion about Ruthless Income?
The members area is quite big and as I said earlier people will get lost and not know what to do. If they added some step by step “action plan” it would definitely help.
The main question is “Is there enough value for $47?” The answer is yes if you are just starting out. The only upsell that might be worth your time is the one-on-one coaching. The other 2 are probably not worth getting.
The sales video is hyped up but at least Jamie is a real person and not some paid actor like you have seen before on Clickbank.
One thing I can tell you for sure is that you won’t get rich tomorrow, next week, or the next month after becoming Ruthless Income member.
If you are able to pick out some of the gold gems out of there and actually implement them then buy it. On the other hand if you are looking for an easy way out and hope for miracles then don’t even bother.
Hope this helps..lol
