Review of Internet Income University by Kevin and Darin Blue
Overall Grade: F
The only saving grace for this product is that they accept payment through TrialPay so you don’t have to pay out of pocket for access, but still, really guys? I just don’t know how there are so many people on Earth willing to mislead people to make money. The main content of this program is “F.A.S.T. Income Plan” so I’ll pull most of my review from that.
The Member’s Area
This F.A.S.T. Income Plan consists of four sections – one for each later in “fast”. Get it? Cute, right? Those sections are “Fast Website Setup”, “Affiliate Income Streams”, “Scalable Advertising”, and “Training and Support”. They are each only one page long (one or two a bit longer than the others) and are completely filled with links to other products that Kevin and Darin are pushing through their affiliate links. I’ll give you a breakdown of each section.
Fast Website Setup
This section of the Internet Income University members’ area is just where Kevin and Darin refer you to a web hosting company through their affiliate link and then have you fill out some information for them to set you up with a website. There are two big problems with this. The first is that learning to build a website is one of the most important skills you’ll develop as an affiliate marketer. Not teaching how to do that in an affiliate marketing program is as bad as taking food off of your student’s table as far as I’m concerned. It’s that important. Also, you don’t get any say in what kind of website they set you up with. They’ll set you up with it and then you’re pretty much on your own. Wait 24 hours for the site setup and then onto the next step.
Affiliate Income Stream
This is where I began to get REALLY turned off. Kevin and Darin refer you to some programs to promote, and #1 at the top of their list is their very own Internet Income University. Man, this really takes me back. WAY back in the early days in affiliate marketing, publishers would sell products promising to make you rich and then, once you got in the member’s area, they would say, “Now we’ll pay you to sell this product to others and that’s how you get rich!” You don’t see that very often any more because it leaves a bad taste in people’s mouths, but that didn’t stop Kevin and Darin from making it their #1!
The other offers they give you to promote are a keyword tool, a hosting company (the same one they had you sign up for in step 1), and something called the “Perfect Balance Plan” which is basically a lifestyle coaching program. That’s all they give you. Not a single mention of CPA networks like Commission Junction, Qwik Media, Neverblue Ads, or even Clickbank. All of those networks are places for affiliates marketers to come and find offers to promote, and as far as I’m concerned any product teaching you how to make a living online should mention at least one or two. But Kevin and Darin Blue seem to think differently!
As if “The Blues Brothers” hadn’t sold you enough add-ons by this point, they pitch what they refer to as “SEO Infinity”. They charge a monthly fee (minimum of $97/month) to optimize your website for the search engines. So really, they are just charging you for SEO and calling it a “co-op”. They say in this section of Internet Income University, “We don’t make money unless you make money.” But that’s just a flat-out lie.
Training and Support
This “Training and Support” Kevin and Darin are giving you out of the kindness of their hearts for free is just a forum of like-minded people that are working with the Internet Income University product. I’d be interested to know, on average, how much each of them have made the Blues Brothers vs. what they have taken in working as affiliates. But this training and support area is simply a forum that you have to sign up for with periodic blog posts from others. That’s it.
There are other sections of Internet Income University, but they are all of equally low quality. They’re rushed and the bare minimum you could be given so that you think you’re learning something new. What’s really happening is someone is throwing around big words and fancy terms so it seems legitimate to others that aren’t familiar with affiliate marketing feel like they’re receiving good material.
The most frustrating thing for me is how many innocent people fall into programs like this, spend several hundred or thousands of dollars, and then think to themselves, “I don’t know what’s going wrong. I’m doing everything they say. It mus be me.” It’s not you, and it’s not your fault that people like Kevin and Darin Blue are so convincing. There’s just no way I can recommend this product. It’s a product that delivers less than half the knowledge an affiliate marketer needs and teaches you just enoughto make you feel like you’re getting somewhere. That’s even worse than a product that’s clearly a scam.
If you have any questions or comments about this review, feel free to send me an email using my contact page, call me, or comment on this post! I do the absolute best I can to be a free resource for new affiliate marketers that are trying to change their lives and avoid getting scammed in this dog-eat-dog industry!

Summary: Just a bunch of upsells and no real lessons Description: Internet Income University by the “Blues Brothers” is just a cleverly disguised web of upsells where you pay more and more and they make tons of money off of you.
