In this Passive Income Formula review we’re going to be looking at some of the claims being made on the sales page and by other reviewers because all I’m seeing on Google at the moment is 9 out 10, 4 out of 5 and stuff like that.
Well if any of you have followed me for any length of time you’ll know that i don’t follow the crowd and just tell you what you can read for yourself off the sales page, i like to dig a little deeper and get to the bottom of what a particular product actually is and does and more importantly if it can really help you achieve the sort of money that they claim is easily made.
NAME: Passive Income Formula
OWNERS: William Twiner, Samuel Cheema

what is passive income formula about
Well apparently it’s a closely guarded secret that the creators of this product are going to let you in on. It’s about using your competitor’s efforts to make you a profit. Using their keywords that are already making money for them to make money for you. It promises to be very different from anything we’ve seen before.
In their own words you’ll be taking your competitors hard work and using it in your campaigns.
So basically you’re going to be looking for lead offers to promote from places like Offervault, once you have them you do lots of keyword research, you then build a website around that keyword.
One thing i did just hear in one video that was a slight cause for concern was the term “sniper site“, now a lot of you may not have heard of these simply because they just don’t work anymore, they used to, but not anymore. George Brown was the sniper site expert back then and he had a program called Google Sniper which i myself tried my hand at, in fact it’s what got me into this industry in the first place, i wasn’t very successful at it, but it did show me the potential if done the right way.
the sales page
When you first see a sales page you’re sometimes blinded by the all the excitement of the possibility of making all that money and you won’t always see what is right in front of you.
Which is where i come in.
Having seen a ton of these types of sales page i can sometimes see what it is you might miss and point it out to you so you can make a better decision whether to buy it or not.
One common theme i see all the time in these opportunities is the fact that they nearly always tell you that all the other methods out there are either outdated or just don’t work, but this one does! Everybody tells you that!
How many of you only saw the $116.76 a day? sounds great doesn’t it.
That headline has done exactly what it was meant to do, make you think that YOU can make that kind of money, but that’s not what they’re saying.
What they are saying is that THEY can bring in that money, see the bit at the top “How I Build” not YOU.
Let’s take a quick look at these statements
- Get started today – yep you can certainly start today
- 100% newbie friendly method – I don’t agree with that (I’ll explain later)
- No prior skills or experience required – I certainly don’t agree with that one
- No unproven theory – true
- 100% passive income after initial setup – true-ish
- 100% free traffic – true
- Complete step by step training – no i don’t agree with that one either.
Right let me explain my reasoning behind the ones i don’t agree with. First off this term “newbie friendly” to be 100% newbie friendly it would take a lot more training than this product has and you certainly wouldn’t get it for $11.
I can remember when i first started and was overwhelmed by things that now come as second nature, but at the time were as confusing as hell. That’s the thing, these product creators tend to forget what it’s truly like to be totally new at this.
As far as the no prior skills or experience is concerned i think he must have missed out a whole lot of training because there is nowhere in there that shows you HOW to set up your website. Now anyone with experience will know that information, but remember this is 100%newbie friendly and you DON’T need any experience.So how are you going to do it? I really don’t know and i really don’t know what they are thinking. How can you implement this if they’re not going to show you how to do what it is you need to do for this to succeed?
And that brings me to the step by step training – they’re missing a lot of steps.
what i did like
- Teaches going for low hanging fruit keywords rather than the larger volume keywords
- A lot of information
- No paid traffic
- concept is very good
what i didn’t like
- Sniper sites just don’t work anymore, Google slapped them long ago
- Not as easy as the sales page makes out, it’s going to take time to build an authority site and time for Google to trust you.
- Although there is a lot of information, it is glossed over a lot of the time, so you are going to have lots of questions
- The ranking for his site that is in the training isn’t great

So there you have around an hour of training in which you have to familiarize yourself with all that’s involved and like i said i think if you are new you’re going to be left with a lot more questions than answers unfortunately.
If you have the necessary experience then there are a few things you might get from this, but not a lot you wouldn’t know already.
So it’s a bit in the middle really, not enough info for a newbie and nothing really new enough for someone with experience.
I haven’t gone through the upsells so i can’t really comment on them, however i can tell you what to expect after you buy the front end product.
You’re going to be hit with 4 upsells, 3 of them have downsells which are not going to contain as much to make it fair for the people who purchased at the full price.
Unfortunately this is neither one thing nor the other, i think they’re tried to cater for everyone and failed to actually make something of any real value to anyone.
The concept behind it is actually really sound and a lot people do make the mistake of chasing the big commissions in a sector that is too competitive and failing to make any sales at all because they can’t compete in ranking terms, become disillusioned and quit.
If they truly believed this is 100% newbie friendly then they would have put a lot more into it, i mean come on, an hour of training, they can’t be serious.
So even though i do like the principle behind it, the people it’s aimed at are going to struggle and it’s for that reason i can’t approve it.
To implement something like this you are going to need to know the not only the fundamentals of building a website the right way, because believe me you can build them a wrong way and wonder why everything is not clicking into place for you, but you need to be able to rely on experienced people who are there for you when you need to ask questions and you will need to ask questions, lots of them.
I’ve been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for over 3 years now and don’t intend to be leaving anytime soon, they are the only people that i actually trust not to lead me down a path that is not going to be beneficial for me.
Their training is constantly updated to stay relevant to what is happening in the world of internet marketing and i am always learning something new, you see you never stop learning, you may think you know it all, but then something is said and you realise that you have so much more to learn.
If you want to know more about them you can read my detailed review of them here, but just a word of warning, it isn’t going to be an overnight success if you do join, you’re going to need to put in the work, but I’m sure you know that already.
