A little Bit About Myself

This is where I tell you about myself and how I got into this business. Hello everyone, my name is Sharon, that’s me on holiday at Disneyland Paris and I currently make a decent living as an affiliate marketer.

sharon

Remember staring longingly at pictures of far away places, dreaming of escaping the daily grind? That was me! Stuck in a soul-sucking job, really struggling to get motivated, feeling undervalued, and let’s face it, the paycheck wasn’t exactly inspiring.

But listen up, because there’s good news: I broke free!

I discovered a way to make money online and traded in my boring routine for adventures around the world (and yes, Disneyland Paris became a reality!).

Breaking Free

I know what you’re thinking: “Easier said than done, Sharon!” And you’re right.

My online journey wasn’t a walk in the park. I dove headfirst into the online world, only to be bombarded with a confusing mess of “get rich quick” schemes and expensive software promising automated riches.

Trust me, I fell for most of them, learned the hard way, and ended up more lost than ever and with less money in my pocket!

Finding the Key

Just when I was about to give up, I stumbled upon a Wealthy Affiliate review. Let me tell you, I read that thing time and time again.

And every time I did it made me think I could actually do this myself.

Unlike the shady tactics I’d encountered on numerous times before, Wealthy Affiliate (you can read my fullย reviewย of it here) offered a genuine platform I could try for FREE. It was a game-changer.

But it wasn’t just about the price tag. They provided a supportive community, expert guidance, and practical tools that actually helped me navigate the online world.

They didn’t promise overnight success, but they empowered me to build something real and sustainable.

Your Roadmap to Freedom

Listen, I’m not some self-proclaimed guru pretending to be living in a mansion and driving a Lamborghini. I’m just a regular person who used to dream of escaping the 9-to-5 and found a way to make it happen.

I’m not selling you some magic formula, (FYI, there isn’t one!) but I am offering you something valuable: my experience, my insights, and a roadmap to navigate the online world without getting scammed.

Think of me as your friendly guide, cheering you on every step of the way.

Join the Adventure

In the years since I started doing this I’ve been lucky enough to have helped hundreds of people to achieve THEIR goals.

Whether you’re a complete beginner curious about online opportunities or a seasoned explorer looking for new strategies, there’s something for you here.

Join me on this journey as we explore the exciting world of online income together. We’ll learn, grow, and support each other, celebrating wins big and small along the way. Remember, you’re not alone in this! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Your site is a breath of fresh air and your reviews always spot on unlike so many of the other so called review sites that clutter the internet with their biased look at a product that is just a repeat of the sales page, at least you take the time to thoroughly go through the actual product itself.
    Keep up the great work

  2. Hi Sharon,

    Marty here. Are you okay? I’ve been checking this blog daily and I haven’t seen any new reviews. I hope you don’t have Covid!!!

    Hang in there Sharon and stay safe!

    Warmly,

    Marty

  3. Hi Sharon, have you reviewed Jono Armstrong’s Ministry of Freedom? Seems like he spells out how he runs his business of making products. It’s $1497 though…

  4. Hi Sharon,

    As always I appreciate your honest reviews — they are a breath of fresh air!

    Can you review commissionblaster.com ? It sounds great, almost too great. I think I want to buy it, but I’m not sure.

    Thank you for considering this!

    Warmly,

    Marty

  5. Hi! It’s Marty again.

    A new Clickbank software product just came out. It’s called “Raiid.”

    Do you know if you’ll be reviewing this?

    It sounds very good, but I’m not sure. I totally trust your reviews!!!

    Thank you very much!

    Warmly,

    Marty

  6. Sharon,
    I ran across your site when looking for information on a product called Vanquish and found your review very informative and honest. I really appreciate what you are doing and it is amazing the number of products you have reviewed. You rarely can find unbiased reviews of products because most of the reviews are people who are affiliates looking to promote that product. You can make a lot of money with Affiliate Marketing but there are so many sharks out there that over-hype horrible products that don’t do what they are advertised. In addition, many of these product owners are scammers who make it next to impossible to get a refund on a bad product. This really puts a black eye on the whole affiliate marketing industry and somehow, these people need to be found out and the word put out that they are scammers. Personally, I have found the majority of these bad products being with affiliate networks like Warrior, JVZoo and even Click Bank. There are obviously some decent products to promote within these networks but you have what I call serial affiliate product owners who have the next great thing every month. The way these people stay in business is that they have an army of affiliates that will market every product these scammers have. Also, rarely of these products are “evergreen” like Wealthy Affiliate which you promote. These products end up getting a majority of their sells the first 30 days and rarely do any of them have much of a shelf life after 90 days. Even the ones with membership programs realize that most people will cancel after 3 or 4 months. The hope is that a person will buy a core product and one upsell because the core products rarely are more than a starter version which does not do much. I notice that many of these promoters will have an upsell OTO for a Done for You campaign and unfortunately, I have rarely found anything that is truly done for you. In addition, you will see serial marketers like Brendan Mace and Jono Armstrong that actually will repurpose a past product and re-sell it as a different name. We need more people like you who are willing to go after these heavy hitters in the industry who are taking advantage of newbies who have the shiny object syndrome. When you have a program like Wealthy Affiliate, it tells you how to promote any affiliate product. Without that blueprint which you point out in your videos, it does not matter the product you try to promote. You will most likely fail and lose confidence. But, once you have those basic skills you and Wealthy Affiliate teaches, at least you will know the formula and then it is about finding the right products that are actually helping people. Thanks again for everything.

    • Hey Jay, great comment! It sounds like you’re speaking from experience of these types of product which unfortunately isn’t a good thing ๐Ÿ™ Everything you’ve said there is absolutely spot on and hopefully by telling it like it is I can help in some small way to stop people falling into these traps. Thanks again for taking the time to give your thoughts.

  7. Hi Sharon,

    I really appreciate your reviews because they are HONEST. Thank you for this!

    I”ve been reading a lot of reviews about Easy Side Profits created by Simple Spencer and Brett Hitchcock. All the reviews are blind in that they say nothing about what it is. Likewise the sales page is blind.

    While the sales page does give a 30 day money-back guarantee, I hesitate to buy the product because I’m fed up with blind ads and blind reviews. This is why I appreciate your reviews so much. You expose the details behind the blind ads and blind reviews.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

    Warmly,

    Marty

  8. Hi Sharon!

    I understand we don’t know each other, and my request may have come across as spammy!

    It’s NOT. I’m completely serious.

    Feel free to check my Linked In profile here: http://www.linkedin.com/in/michaelscheer

    I’m real. The project is real. and I am interested in working with you on it!

    Specifically, I’d like you to review and provide feedback. If you would like to contribute, that would be great!, but not a requirement. I realize and respect that your time is valuable… just like mine.

    What do you say?

    drop me a line here: michael.scheer.001@gmail.com

  9. Hi Sharon!

    I came across your review of a particular person and product that I found very informative and enlightening. I’ve been helping B&M businesses since the early 2000’s and often look at tools that the IM community uses so that I can provide my clients with an inexpensive “step-up” to allow them to continue on their own once I’ve gotten the ball rolling for them.

    Your review, in fact, mirrored much of my conclusions about this particular person and the myriad of kludged together “solutions” that actually do more damage than good for people.

    As we have had similar experiences with these types of people, I’l like to know if you would be interested in participating in a project that I’m working on. That project is, in brief, a COMPLETE guide/course focusing on what is really necessary (steps and resources) to be successful and be profitable on line.

    Please let me know your thoughts about this.

    Thanks…

    Look forward to your response!

    • Hey Ernesto, having had a look at what he has to offer I would say no. At no point does he even tell you what you’re going to be buying, classic scam tactics! I personally would stay well clear.

  10. Hi!,
    I’ve searched your site to see if you’d reviewed Siphon Reloaded (aka “5iphon” Reloaded Plus) and found that you haven’t.
    I’ve been hearing many good things about that program, but the skeptic in me still has me on the fence. So I was wondering if you could please do a review on that. Your honest thoughts on it would help me enormously on whether to purchase or not.
    Thank you!

  11. Hello Sharon,

    I was looking to connect about ad placements, I typically work with publishers directly. However because I’m familiar with the affiliate space and can recognize the value you have I wanted to see in which ways we can add value for each other. I work for Ezoic.com, however use to work with many affiliates in reference to some older eCommerce sites I used to own.

    Shoot me an email if you’d like to connect,
    Scotty

  12. Hi Sharon,
    Thanks for the intro to the Wealth Affiliate program. I’ve jumped in and started the training already. Kind of a break from my work but I strongly believe this is what I’ve been looking for.

    • That’s fantastic news Dave, I’ll drop by to give you a big warm welcome ๐Ÿ™‚ And don’t forget if there is anything you need a hand with all you have to do ask.

  13. I received a few ads from “gurus” about a “newbie friendly” program. I am s skeptic since I have tried some other programs- much to my chagrin. So- I looked at reviews for a certain product. Interesting to note that glowing reviews came from some “gurus” who post numerous reviews- and some of whom I discovered had a history with the producers. Then I saw your review and one other that said basically “do not buy” while others had glowing reviews. Interesting . Thanks for honesty.

    • Yeah there’s a lot of them out there that are friends with the different product vendors. Not sure how they can give an unbiased review as a friend, but still.

      Appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment

  14. Hi,
    Have you written review for newsbuilder?
    But I need to see at least one news website created by newsbuilder,
    if so, can you share any website URL created by newsbuilder.
    I have asked this to almost all reviewers and no one gave me details of not even one website,
    So if you and newsbuilder are genuine please share a URL.,

  16. Hi Sharon

    I am unemployed and 57 and have tried making money online for YEARS and not made a dime!

    Info overload and procrastination โ€“ as normal!

    I have also looked at Bloggii and the others on your website and completely pulling out my hair – what’s left of it!! so much scam / BS / false promises.
    I am in severe financial difficulty and need the quickest most realistic way to generate some money ASAP

    Please can you advise. I am vv desperate…but vv detemined!
    That would be much apperciated.

    • Hi David,

      Unfortunately this business, regardless of what the ‘gurus’ tell you, is not going to get you out of financial difficulties overnight. It takes time and hard work. For the moment I would say your time and energy would be better spent trying to get job so you can get yourself out of your difficulties first.

      Once you’ve done that you can start to concentrate on this.

      I see you’re a member of Wealthy affiliate, follow their training while you look for work and you’ll be in a great position when you are ready.

      I’m so sorry there isn’t a magical way to make money online really quickly, but you sound like someone who will not stop until you succeed.

  17. Hi Sharon, I have to say your candidness on your review site is refreshing. I am new and don’t have a lot of funds to start an onlone business. Other than Wealthy Affiliate is there any other programs/opportunities out there for us beginners?
    Thanks
    Wayne

  18. Hi there,

    I also want to get started with writing reviews for different IM launches, and wanted to ask what types of backlinks you recommend for ranking my reviews in Google?

    I always buy through you when, and have followed your blog for a while. It would really help me as I have struggled to make any money online for a LONG time.

    I have good on-page SEO, and keyword focuesed, it’s just that my domain isn’t as powerful as I don’t have any good backlinks. If you could help me out with your strategy my whole family will pray for you. You’d be helping the well being of a family.

    Please help, thanks!

    • I’d love to tell you the secret, but the secret is there is no secret. As for using backlinks to rank my site i don’t actively do any backlinking whatsoever, i don’t even know how many backlinks this site has if any.
      I certainly wouldn’t recommend backlinking, it’s so risky. I just create good content on a regular basis, on an off page SEO, a few social signals and that’s it really.
      If you want to learn how to do it the way i do, and you know it works, then i would strongly suggest you check out Wealthy Affiliate to put you on the right path.

  19. Hi there! Just a quick question about selling textbooks… I have many textbooks from high school and university classes and I want to get the most money for them but I’d rather not have to list each individual one. I know there are a few services that help with this, I believe bookscouter is one, but I would love some advice on this. Maybe you could even write an article! I’d also like to say that I really love your website and I’m very happy to have stumbled across it this morning. Hope you have a lovely day, and congrats for getting yourself out of the rat race ๐Ÿ™‚

If i find anything that i think will be of value to you and others i will definitely be writing an article on the subject. Thanks for the idea ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep checking back for any updates….
