If you love ripping off people and teaching others to do the same; Then you’ve come to the right place. My Online Business education, (formerly known as my Online Business Empire), is one of the Biggest Pyramid schemes out there.
They are huge liars as well. I’ll be giving, Matt Lloyd, a review today on his income killing business, “My Online Business Education.” A.K.A. MOBE.
A Couple Suspicious Things To Look At
A couple things I find Interesting; they don’t even seem to have a professional community page for members to speak in. Instead it’s a private page on Facebook. So, people have to spend thousands for their products, and Matt Lloyd is too cheap to create a private community page for members to communicate with each other in MOBE.
That’s odd don’t you think? If you watch the opening video, you are told you will have to a sign a non-disclosure so you can’t speak about the training with in MOBE. This makes sense, I suppose… That’s how people are convinced to purchase from MOBE.
It’s such a big secret. It has to work. That’s the concept I get from them. First off, just because you’re selling “High ticket” products, doesn’t mean you will make a ton of money. I mean, doesn’t the product have to actually work?
You know what… Scratch that. It cost a lot of money; so it has to work. I mean am I right? Ok. Enough with my ranting. Let’s dive into what My Online Business Education actually is.
What Is My Online Business Education?
My Online Business Education (MOBE for short) was founded By Matt Lloyd, an entrepreneur from Australia. He created a Multi-level marketing company, in which; a majority also will reference as a pyramid scheme. The company is supposed to be a premier, online marketing, home business. They advertise performing a simple 21 step program that will, essentially, bring you from rags to riches. You pay only $49 dollars to cover cost for application fees.
After you sign up, A coach will get a hold of you via telephone call or Skype. He is supposed to guide you through the process of the 21 step program. This “coach” is the sales person that up-sells you; ALL that MOBE has to offer. The only legitimate people that achieve high earnings, through these marketing tactics, are the top people in the company.
At the same time, you at the bottom of the pyramid, who just signed up, is forking out money for high-end, overpriced products. The point of purchasing is only to sell the same thing, that you just purchased, to their own passengers during recruitment, for their own plane.
Does It Work?
Ya, sure. It works… Problem is most people get screwed out of their money before ever reaching to the top. There is just way to much up-front cost before you even make any money. You’re basically buying a business, in this program. That’s the scheme. Or at least the amount of money you’re looking to spend if you join MOBE.
What Exactly Do I Do In MOBE?
Well that’s a very good question. In the beginning, it’s like you just pay a small fee and then you work 30 minutes a day and make thousands of dollars in the process. They claim, you don’t have to sell, you pretty much…don’t have to do anything.
Then all of a sudden, they say it’s hard work if you want to make it. You’re basically buying the product, so you have the rights to sell it to the next guy. The $49 startup cost is very deceptive of what you’re actually jumping into.
Does My Online Business Education Have Valuable Products?
To be upfront, no. They do not have valuable products. Any value, that they sell you, you could find for a cheaper cost; if not free. We aren’t even allowed to sample the product before buying it. Just like buying a car, if I’m going to spend that much; I want to test drive it first.
When someone asked Matt Lloyd, “What is the fastest way to get 100k in commission?” Matt basically told him to just go crazy on putting up ads, get them to sign up for the program, and pay that 49 dollars. In simple terms…Spend lots of money on ads; get people to sign up and pay the fee.
He doesn’t talk about the products in his videos.Only talks about getting people to sign up. It’s better than what the “Guru’s” preach. That’s just one example of the many ridiculous videos that he makes. You can find them at Matt Lloyd’s blog.
You’re supposed to receive 1-1 coaching, in the program, through means of Skype or telephone, but this is just a big fat lie… Instead, they provide you your own personal salesman; to sell you stuff…If your reading this and disagree; then comment below and tell me why they keep coaching you into purchasing more useless tools.
I don’t want to sound extremely heinous but you’re blind if you don’t see this from the get-go. Just think about it. When I was looking into this program; first, I watched a 37 minute program of all these lame testimonials.
The video just talks about how you’ll never have to sell, never have to call anyone…actually they pretty much make it sound like, you will never have to do anything. You can live the lazy life. Work 30 minutes a day and make 100K. The video goes on to talking about how none of the guru’s know these secrets of making money.
All this information should cost a lot. But instead, you are going to get it all this information for free. Later on in the video, now it’s going to cost a 49 dollar fee for you to sign up. Just to cover application expenses, and make sure you are serious about joining. But hey, you’re going to make it back anyways, right?
On top of that, they give a false, but convincing, guarantee.“I guarantee you will make money within 30 days or I will pay you out of my own pocket 500 dollars.” You can’t even progress through all the steps without first purchasing something a few steps along the way. All these guys offer are false promises.
One guy I know, actually told me that when he tried signing up for MOBE. His bank declined the credit card payment. He calls the bank and they ask him if he’s sure he wants to sign up. The reasoning was because they’ve been receiving a lot of fraudulent charge backs.
WOW! If that’s not a red flag; I don’t know what is.
Matt Lloyd Claims MOBE Is The Best Internet Marketing Company
A couple of his main reasons, why MOBE is better than other programs, is the commission is high. You also only need to get people to sign up for the program; pay the $49 dollar fee. The Coach (sales team) will take care of the rest of the selling for you.
The problem though, if you don’t buy into the higher packages yourself; you won’t get the high commission. So to make $5,000 dollars on one sale you would first have to purchase the $10,000 dollar product. Who has that kind of capital to throw away in the garbage?
No one tells you any information, except that the product has been proven to work. Just because you told me, that doesn’t mean it’ll work for me. What are you hiding? why can’t you just be straightforward with the information? That’s shady practices.
I would never pay for something that I can’t get any information on. If the product is great, so they like you claim, why can’t there be a free trial to test it out? In my opinion, it’s because if people knew what they were getting into; They would never sign up.
You Have A 1% Percent Chance Of Actually Succeeding With MOBE
At the same time Matt Lloyd claims MOBE is the best place for affiliate marketing, He does put one cold truth on his website. “Less than 1% of all participants will earn sufficient income with MOBE to serve as their sole source of income.” So, even though it seems like you have a good shot of making a decent living with the program, based on how it’s promoted.
The truth is less than 1% will ever drive that dream car that’s promoted. Below you can see part of the companies Income Disclosure. As you can see, most people are making less than $2,000 a year with this program. Considering you pay $1,000’s of dollars to get started, you rarely even make enough to recoup your cost back.
Do you really want to take the chance with this program? You have a 99% chance of never making enough to use MOBE as your only source of income.
You could supply a down payment on a house with money spent here
So…if you’re truly thinking about trying MOBE out; I would seriously consider otherwise. Let’s dive into the cost of everything…Obviously if you’re looking to make a huge profit you have to go by the old saying, “You got to spend money to make money.” In this day and age that’s not completely true anymore, but when you look at MOBE’s business model. This is the case.
Most of the products below will give you a commission of 50-90 percent if sold. I couldn’t list everything that is being up-sold to you, but I wanted to point out a good chunk. To put it in perspective, the amount of fees that you rack up if you choose to progress, can and will accumulate to be as much as a down payment on your house (or even more) here’s a list of things you’re going to want to purchase in MOBE:
Internet marketing revolution handbook($9.95)
My Top Tier Business ($49)
Done for you emails ($97/month)
MLR Inner Circle ($99/ month)
How to build a funded proposal ($194)
My email marketing empire ($194)
The O.P.T. Formula ($194)
MOBE licensing kit ($297)
Affiliate bonus domination ($291)
Traffic masters academy ($297)
90 day challenge ($997)
10k in 10 days ($1,997)
10,000 leads in 100 days ($1,997)
MOBE license rights program($2,497)
Platinum mastermind ($16,667)
And the list goes on…
Add it all up a it equals around $35,677.95 dollars plus all the products I didn’t even list. so pay this one-time fee plus a couple hundred dollars a month and you’ll be rich is pretty much the claim.
I’m really seeing this whole scenario in a different perspective; it’s more like you’ll go bankrupt before any level of success comes. A lot of this is useless junk I could find on the web with extensive research and not pay a penny.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t recommend this program but there are pros to it not just cons. Here’s a list of the Pros vs Cons:
If you’re good at ripping people off, you can get a high commission
You get to meet and network with other con artist like yourself
Some of the training is OK
Tons of up-sells
Your 1-1 coach loves to up-sell you
Feels like you have to constantly buy things
Products are overpriced
You aren’t really creating a business
Terrible customer support
All you do is recruit other people to buy expensive products
Money back guarantee is a scam not a truth
Honestly the list of cons could probably keep going. I’m sure you get the picture.
MOBE Motors-Drive That Dream Car
There’s a lot of misunderstanding on the dream car you can choose if you do make enough money each month. What happens is once you earn enough commissions in a month, MOBE will reward you by paying for a car. Which is true, but you won’t ever actually “own” the car. You’ll only get to drive, which is still nice to drive a Ferrari, Mercedes, Lamborghini, etc… what ever I want to drive I can choose myself.
What happens is Matt Lloyd will Lease a car for you and will supply the money for you to pay for whatever vehicle you desire. Sometimes people think a place will be around forever and then it one day it just disappears. Do you remember Blockbusters, Circuit City, K.B. Toys? Some people thought those stores were the greatest and weren’t going anywhere. I’m still disappointed some of them are gone; replaced with newer things like Netflix. Control, Alt, Delete.
What happens if this were to happen to MOBE? The clock finally runs out and they close their doors? Your $3,000 a month car lease just turned into your problem. But, now you can’t afford it. So now you have to return the car. Maybe, you sold your junk car because you weren’t going to drive it anymore. So now you don’t have a car anymore. Worse, you aren’t even making an income anymore to purchase a new car.
Since all the systems are “Done For You”; you didn’t receive any “real” training to allow yourself to pursue another business venture. This is why I love having multiple streams of income instead of just one source. MOBE doesn’t give you that option.
The training platform that I use does. It teaches me to make an income in anything that I love talking about. Cars, Sports, Helping you guys…I can make money talking about anyone of those things, But it does take effort and patience.
This means you have to go back to whatever old job, that you hated, and work there miserably again. If MOBE were to close it’s doors like many other great companies have in the past. This would probably be heartbreaking after all the money and time you spent doing it. This just causes a big concern for me when you talking about some company leasing out a car to me.
You qualify for a car once you earn enough points in a month. Every $1,000 equals one MOBE Motors point. In order to qualify for the car; You have to earn five points in a month. As you can see from the above image. Each point allows you a budget on how big the lease can be.
If you make $5,000 in commissions, which is the lowest level you can be to qualify, you can get any car that leases for $600 or less per month. If you make $25,000 in a month then you can have a lease payment of up to $3,000. You have to maintain the points for whatever level you choose for the car every month.
If you make $5,000 one month and only $2,000 the next month you can potentially lose the car you just got. Businesses never only go up the stairs in success. Every business will decrease in sales at some point. The world isn’t perfect enough for businesses to always just increase.
You can always rollover your leftover points to the next month. However, all points do expire in 90 days. So you can’t just save up the points like you were saving your change in your piggy bank.
Once you qualify for the car and choose, you are required to be in a promotional video to give your testimony. So I hope you are a camera person.
Is My Online Business Empire Education A Scam?
As I don’t want to look like a liar. In my opinion, yes it is a scam. But In reality, if you are a heartless salesman and have 20-30k in capital to invest with. You may have a chance of actually making real money with this marketing program. It can work for you, but won’t for probably 99 percent of the people that decide to join.
It’s definitely not a program I would want to be associated with. There are plenty of real work from opportunities out there. The kind of opportunities that won’t go and take all your money before you make anything.
My Final Take On MOBE
Don’t do it. I’m saying that with your best interest in mind. Any place that’s going to be as unethical with business practices as MOBE, Is just a company that’s looking to bury yourself deep into the ground.
Any program, that will end up costing you as much as purchasing a brand new car or putting down a house payment to learn how to get rich is just not a smart decision. I could probably buy a website with that much money that’s already making an income and producing traffic.
I know you are smarter than that. Smart enough to figure out this program isn’t right for you. Am I missing any information? Or can you see what I’m talking about?
