Review of No Cost Income Stream by Jeff Wellman, Eric Holmlund, and Paul Counts
Overall Grade: C+
I’ve spent a lot of time toiling over my review for this product. It has many good elements that make the product worth what they’re asking, but it also has some significant drawbacks and limitations that as an experienced affiliate marketer, I feel uncomfortable endorsing. I’ll elaborate:
This program is all about getting you going without any extra fees. The publisher definitely lives up to their claims there. They show you how to get everything going for free and they don’t pressure you to buy a bunch of paid resources through their affiliate links. I have a great deal of respect for that. But to illustrate the problem with this, let’s say you wanted to open a retail store. I tell you that I can teach you how to open one without spending a penny, and you buy my program. After I have your money, I tell you to sell women’s purses out of the trunk of your car. Are you going to make a few sales? Maybe, but not near as many as you could with a brick and mortar retail store.
Trying to be an affiliate marketer without a website is very similar. Instead of having a website at http://www.yoursite.com/ you’ll have a website at http://yourpage.somebodyelsessite.com/. These pages are much harder to drive traffic to and have much less credibility to visitors than a traditional website. If you plan to be an affiliate marketer, it’s not advisable to workaround learning to build a website. It’s a necessary skill that any successful affiliate marketer I have met has taught themselves – usually very early in their career.
Another problem I had with the No Cost Income Stream program was it’s just a means to an end. In other words, they teach you how to build free sites so you can get started but they only have one very quick, very rushed video at the end that tells you how to expand your business beyond their free resources. They don’t teach you how to build a real, legitimate website, how to write website copy, how to setup a real autoresponder, how to do serious keyword research, etc… All of these things are VERY necessary if you plan to become a full-time affiliate marketer and none of them are taught in the program. If we stick with our retail store example, they’re teaching you how to sell out of the trunk of your car without teaching you how to stock inventory, set up displays, evaluate your competition, or any other skill necessary to open a brick and mortar retail shop.
These “real” guys actually do a lot of things very well too. There is a ton of content in their members area, their lessons are very concise and easy to follow, and they’re showing you many workarounds to getting started in this industry without spending any extra money. Many programs promise that, but I’ve never seen anyone deliver it as well as these guys. Sure workarounds are typically, by nature, less effective than the real solution you’re working around, but if you literally have no extra money to get properly setup and you’re bootstrapping it, this is a very legitimate option for you.
So here’s my final verdict on this product. Should you buy it? I can’t answer that with a resounding “no” near as confidently as I do with a ton of other products I’ve reviewed on this site. These guys are adding delivering some real value here. But can I give it a resounding “yes” or confident endorsement either? I really can’t. I’ve reviewed better programs that require some startup investment on hosting and a domain name which is pretty minimal, but the information in them was better than the information in No Cost Income Stream.
I can ONLY recommend this product if you have absolutely no money to start your affiliate marketing business. Any business requires at least a little startup capital and affiliate marketing or any other internet business are no exception. This program will be a good fit for you if you have absolutely no money to spend after you buy a product and you 100% need to bootstrap it. This program gives you enough information to develop some seed money and grow your business as long as you’re determined and put in the time necessary. If and only if that situation describes you perfectly, I feel comfortable that No Cost Income Stream (affiliate link) is the best product you’ll find. If the above doesn’t describe your situation perfectly and you have a hundred or two hundred dollars you’re capable of investing after you buy a program, there are better options that will give you a head start over anyone buying No Cost Income Stream.
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!
