Ewen Chia – How To Spot Fake Reviews

Hey guys, this is Ewen Chia, I’ve been marketing online since 1997 and have helped thousands of students achieve real success on the internet throughout these years.

I’m also the author of the #1 international bestselling book, “How I Made My First Million On The Internet…And How You Can Too!”

One of the skills I’m best known for is “Affiliate Marketing”, the business model of making commissions through the marketing and selling of other companies’ products and services.

It’s with Affiliate Marketing in mind that I’m writing this article, which is long overdue in my opinion.

Have you ever searched the search engines and saw websites ranking for “author name + scam”, “author name + product name” or “product name reviews” etc.?

This is an affiliate marketing strategy known as “Fake Reviews” and involves the websites or web pages writing largely fake and biased negative reviews of a person or product, while promoting themselves or their chosen products.

Meaning, they are actually doing all this to MAKE MONEY from another product (product B) while tearing down the competitor’s product (product A).

It happens everywhere, not only in the Internet Marketing niche.

It’s a strategy that works as many people are misled by and fall for these “reviews”. So they keep appearing and continuing.

Most of these website owners also employ black hat tactics to benefit themselves.

They tend to target popular brands and products – simply because there’s traffic from people searching for them.

Lets look at how you can spot fake reviews so that you’re in the know…

How To Spot A Fake Review – 3 Tell Tale Signs

Tell Tale Sign #1
: Targeting Popular Gurus, Brands And Products

Fake reviews are often targeted at popular gurus, brands and products because they have huge traffic and search volume, ie. demand. In fact, this is the only way the strategy can be effective.

Tell Tale Sign #2: Bashing One Product To Promote Another

If someone is bashing a product or products unfairly, only to recommend another “better” product that he or she is making a commission on, then it’s positively a fake review.

Some of these website owners also go as far as to promote themselves as a more credible and trustworthy alternative, as the other guru or brand is seen in a bad light based on their “reviews”.

Tell Tale Sign #3: Multiple Search Engine Rankings

As mentioned, the way this works is by targeting popular keywords that describe their competitors’ names and products.

They then try to rank for these multiple keywords on the search engines to get traffic.

Think about it, why would another website try so hard to rank and get traffic for OTHER people’s names and product names on the search engines?

The very fact that they are doing this shows you they are using fake reviews as a strategy to make money.

Hope this article will give you a deeper insight and clearer perspective when you next look at a review.

How To Get Traffic Online

I have been receiving many questions from my students and customers about how they can generate traffic to their website. What is shocking to me is that some of them do not even know that they have to generate traffic.

Traffic is the lifeblood of any business. You may have the most beautiful website, or a website that is touted to have an excellent conversion rate, but if your website does not get any traffic, then you are not going to get any sales. A website without traffic is like a shopping mall without visitors.


There are two main types of traffic.

There’s free traffic and paid traffic.

Paid traffic gets you traffic instantly in most cases. However, you will have to continually invest in paid traffic in order to get that stream of traffic.

Free traffic may not get you traffic immediately, but its main purpose is to bring you a steady stream of traffic in the long run.

Either method you choose involves getting your website link to your target audience and potential buyers. I will briefly run through a few traffic methods in this post.

Facebook Ads

Facebook has approximately 2 billion users. You have a huge market to tap into right there!

If you’re not advertising on Facebook, you’re missing out on a huge potential goldmine. There are many ways you can advertise on Facebook, but for starters, you should create what is known as a news feed ad.

These ads show up on the Facebook news feed of people you target. You target people based on their interests.

For example, if you are selling a fitness course, then you may opt to target people who like fitness experts such as Ashley Borden, Jillian Michaels or Tony Horton.

You could also target people who like fitness clubs such as California Fitness or Fitness First. I recommend you keep your budget to $10 a day.

You can send your traffic to a squeeze page, a landing page, or your own fan page.

Just bear in mind that sending traffic to your own fan page is typically cheaper than sending people out of Facebook.

Email Solo Ads

Email solo ads are ads you buy from other email marketers.

You pay the marketer to send an email to their list, promoting your own squeeze page so that you can build a list too.

This form of traffic is really the most targeted traffic you can get if you are building an email list. However, solo ads are most popular in the internet marketing niche. You may find solo ad vendors selling solo ads for other niches, but those may not be as popular as solo ads for the internet marketing niche.

Solo ad vendors sell solo ads based on a certain number of clicks currently.

For example, they may charge $50 for 100 clicks. This means that for $50, the vendor will send an ad to his or her email list and ensure that your link in the email is clicked at least 100 times.

Most vendors will deliver a few extra clicks or what is known as “over delivery” (OD), so you’ll effectively be playing slightly less than $0.50 a click.

If you intend to buy solo ads, make sure you have a click tracking script so that you can track the number of clicks you’re receiving as well as the number of subscriber optins you’re getting.

This way, you’ll know if the solo ad vendor’s clicks are converting well for you and can test your ROI.

Blog Commenting

This method may be old school, but it still works very effectively.

The idea here is to visit blogs of people writing about your niche topic and leave a comment with your URL. Don’t just blatantly write “this post is great”. Write a constructive comment to show that you read the blog post and you know your stuff.

Build rapport not only with the author but also the other readers that the blog gets.

When they see that what you’re writing makes a lot of sense, then you’ll not only get their respect but you could also very well get a visit from them on your website.

Wall Jacking

This method works very similarly to blog commenting.

You’re using Facebook as your fan page and leaving comments on posts from fan pages related to yours. Like what I wrote above, you have to build rapport and write something constructive.

However, Facebook posts are more likely to go viral.

Hence, just one comment from you could go a long way. Now besides leaving comments on posts, you could also like other people’s comments, especially if you think that they will be interested in your fan page.

When you like another person’s comment, there’s a chance that he or she may click through to see what your fan page is about. When that happens, you could very well get the person’s like on your fan page. This is a really effective way to growing your fan base steadily.

I hope this post has been eye-opening for you. Go out there and take action.

Pick one of these methods mentioned here and start driving traffic to your website or fan page. I look forward to hearing your success stories!

How To Earn More Money Online

Hey! How are you doing?

I’ve been travelling non-stop for training events to many countries but I wanted to share this with you.

That’s because many readers are wondering…

“How do I earn more money online??”

So there are 3 main strategies at work here…

Strategy #1: Make MORE Sales


The most obvious way is to simply make more sales of the product you’re promoting.

This can be either your own or affiliate product, it doesn’t matter as the strategy is the same.

For example, if your net profits per sale is $10, in order to make $1,000, you’ve to sell 100 copies!

This is the LEAST effective method to make more money as you’re simply trading time and effort for dollars with no leverage.

Strategy #2: Make More PER Sale


The next strategy is obviously to make more per sale in order to earn more.

You could sell a $100 product instead of a $10 product, so effort wise, it will take you 10 sales to make $1,000 instead of 100 sales as with the first strategy.

Sounds a lot easier?

Well this is not always a recommended method as it’s about working MUCH harder once again.

I mean, it’s a lot harder to charge higher prices than cheaper prices and you must work harder to get the customer in the door.

This is true unless you’ve a very strong brand, trust and relationship with your market, affiliate support and premium products that justify the price.

So what’s the best option?

Strategy #3: Make More Per CUSTOMER


In Marketing (online or offline), a proven strategy is to make more money from the same customer.

This is a very powerful strategy with high leverage, where you earn more by working less.

Remember, it takes the SAME amount of effort to get a customer.

Often times, this is achieved by utilizing a marketing sales funnel that leads the same customer from a front-end product to optional upsells and backends that benefit him or her.

In Marketing, you’ll thus often see things like “one time offers”, “upsell offers” and “backend offers”.

This is VERY common and almost 99% of internet marketers have this in place within their products…

So get use to it :-)

The reason marketers do this is simply because it makes good marketing sense, and dollars of course.

You should do the same if you’re a marketer.

Now the thing is, you must provide REAL VALUE and related products that help customers throughout the funnel, and these should be optional.

Meaning, they provide EXTRA help and benefits to the customer, but should not take away from the main product.

This helps you to leverage your marketing and get the “lifetime value” of the customer.

Lets look at an example:

If a customer buys a front end product from you for $50, if you don’t have this strategy in place, you’ll just earn $50.

If you’ve a “one time offer” and other related “backend products”, you could be making A LOT more like $5,000 (!) from the same customer, while providing more value.

I know it’s harder to do this unless you’re very experienced or have a team.

The average beginner will not be able to benefit from this strategy and many will continue to trade their time for dollars and earn minimum profits.

Is there an easier way to take advantage of this strategy immediately without having to wait years or working harder?

Of course there is!

Make noodles and make money online

Hey, Ewen Chia here. LOL I know. How can making noodles be even remotely related to making money online…

Guys, it’s the PROCESS not the noodles. Let me share the story…

A few days ago, my wife bought an electronic noodle maker (yes, there is such a thing!) with much excitement.

Of course, being the handy man of the house, I’ve to find out how the heck to make it work :-)

ewen chia make money online

What you see above is the END RESULT, yes it worked!

So how does this has to do with making money online??

It got me thinking, A LOT apparently.

Why? Because the process is the SAME.

Now lets look at the lesson and the 3R Formula (yes I just came up with this on the spot lol) to succeed…


For whatever we want to succeed in, it ALWAYS helps to first know what outcome and end results you want to get from your ventures.

This is sometimes called “Outcome based thinking” or “Results in advance” as made popular by my friend and very smart marketer, Frank Kern.

However, to me, it just makes sense to have a GOAL in mind. Without knowing exactly what you want to achieve, you can never get there. I talk about this a lot in my “Make Millions Online” book!

Make noodles: to have great tasting, home made noodles done for you

Make money online: to make $XXXX per month!

So once we’ve identified the outcome we desire, we move to the next step…


In this next step, we then determine and work BACKWARDS what “ingredients” we need in order to achieve that specific end result we want. You must know what goes into the RECIPE :-)

Make noodles: flour, water, egg, juices (optional)

Make money online: niche, product, website, traffic (example)

Now it’s step 3…


The dictionary defines the word “refine” as: to bring to a finer state or form

In this final step, what we want to do is to find some way to fine tune and possibly “automate” step 2 so it works like a well-oiled SYSTEM which we can follow easily.

We always want to try to make things easier by “automating” the system as much as possible. In this way, we can have more time and less stress.

Make noodles: The noodle making machine!

Make money online: Software, outsource, etc.

So as you can see, making noodles and making money online HAVE a lot in common :-)

Hope this post gave you some good ideas on how to strategize and plan your internet business!

Can You Make $3k In A Day?

Hi, Ewen Chia here, and I want to show you an inspiring video.

I use a system to promote MOBE. The great thing about this system that I use is, you do not need your own product to sell.

My strategies follow the simple concepts of affiliate marketing. That basically means that you are promoting another vendor’s product, and you make a commission whenever somebody buys the product through your link.

Think of it as making a sale as a result of a referral. Affiliate marketing is absolutely the best way that any newbie can make income on the internet.

Apart from that, I also have my own marketing funnel. Here is an illustration of that marketing funnel.

Ewen Chia's marketing funnel

As you can see, it is a simple 4 page website. It’s honestly nothing fancy if you ask me. Sometimes we want to over-complicate things when in fact, we should keep things short and simple.

I want to mention too that I invest in a lot of paid traffic. Now a lot of people may cringe at the sound of buying traffic, because they are afraid of taking the risk.

But think of it this way. You need to test your own marketing funnel first.

When you find something that works well for you, you could be making a positive return on investment. For every $1 you invest in traffic, your aim is to make at least $1 to break even.

If you make more, then that’s a profit, and you can reinvest that profit into more paid traffic. That is how you scale things up, so if you can make $1, you can scale things up to make $10, then $100, and so on, until you eventually hit your goal. In time to come, you can even make income on autopilot.

Here’s the good news. I ran many tests on my marketing funnel until it became profitable, and I’m offering a bonus package where my team will build this exact same marketing funnel for you.

Besides that, my bonus package also has a lot of other good stuff. This bonus package will not be up forever, so I suggest you head over to the BONUSES page asap.

I hope this video has inspired you. Let me leave you with a screenshot that will hopefully inspire you as well. This could very well be you in future.


Now go do it!

WAKE UP CALL (Secret To Making Real Money Online)

EwenChiaPhoto I thought I’d write this post for you so that you can succeed online for sure…

In fact, if you act upon the information here, YOU WILL SUCCEED.

You see, here’s the reality and this will probably hit a few hot buttons…

With the vast number of diffferent business models, methods and products available  online today to help you start an internet business and  hopefully make money online…

I’ll be as LOST as many of you if I was just starting from scratch!

I do get it.

I do see your point.

That it’s not easy at all.

You know what?

It’s time for a huge WAKE UP CALL!

Why? Because apart from the direction you need and the many choices you’ve to make, a HUGE cause of failure has everything to do with…



Meaning, you. Yes, you and only you, are responsible for your own success or failure, not anyone else, not me, not them, but you.

Like it or not – the truth can hurt. This is going to sting but it needs to be said especially at this time.

Remember (and I’m not necessarily referring to anyone in particular but)…

Losers complain, whine and blame others. Winners just DO whatever it takes to succeed, with NO excuses.

Now before you go yelling at me, let me explain…

Most people do NOT think and do what is required. It’s too hard work.

What? Think and do? What’s that??

Thinking about your plan and goals – and acting on them to make them real.

Look at your options and decide your path.

Then write out your PLAN and goals and apply them.

That’s all that matters.

Without a plan and goals to drive, motivate yourself and act upon, no products can help you.

It doesn’t have to be a 500 page business plan, just something simple to tell yourself what you want to achieve in a certain time period.

I suggest you read my book “Make Millions Online” immediately if you haven’t yet.

Really read it, take notes and THINK about it.

Here’s why…

It will give you the direction and plan.

With the benefits of hindsight and experience (after spending 17 years online and making millions of dollars for real) let me tell you what’s working for me…

My biggest success comes from…


It’s funny, sometimes when you tell it like it is, many people still don’t “get it” and continue chasing shiny objects everywhere.

Or they complain they can’t do it because they lack the skills and knowledge.

Go get the skills and knowledge then!

Who’s stopping you?


Listen, let me say it again…

My biggest success comes from…


Get it?

All successful marketers stick by this. Doesn’t matter if you’ve just started, thinking of starting or have done this for years…


Whether in 2015 or beyond. In fact, it’s going to be even more important in the future.

Get it?

Get it??

Get it???

It’s what you’ve probably been searching for, heard about it but didn’t register before.

Well take your time, it took me 5 years to “get it” way back then (but now I’m providing  you with an instant “short-cut” to success by telling you this!)

Once I did get it, took action and DID what I was supposed to, I became wildly successful!

And you know what?


I encourage and challenge you to do so.

So let me repeat (again), the “secret” to making real money online, even millions, is simply by…


Once more, read my book to get the full picture, there’s way more explanation there as to why it works and HOW it works.

Now the question is…

If you want to build and monetize your own email list, how the heck do you start?

You need to understand the BIG PICTURE first and what you need…

(By the way, I love big pictures as it helps you know what you’re doing. I coined my own term for it called “Big Picture Marketing” :-))

Here’s the big picture to help you build and monetize your list:

Big Picture List Building By Ewen Chia

May take some time to decipher as my writing and drawing is not the best.

But this is the simplest way to do it so you can build your list and make money at the same time.

Here’s what you need, this is what I call a “money-getting” formula…


A squeeze page is simply a ONE page website whose only objective is to get  prospects’ contact information or email addresses…

Keep it simple. It can be ugly and still make millions.

No distraction or other ads.



You need to sell a product to make money, it can be your own or a merchant’s product.

To keep it simple, it can be a merchant’s product (affiliate marketing) so you just need to redirect subscribers who optin from your squeeze page to your affiliate link!

You can promote an affiliate offer that pays you $20-$50 per sale, or one that has the potential to earn you up to $5,000 a sale. 

Which makes more sense, especially if it takes the same effort to promote either one? As I said in my book, making high commissions is a much better option, all things being equal.


You MUST learn to write great, money-making email messages that SELL.

You can write a series of them and presave them in your autoresponder campaign, and also send email broadcasts to your list of subscribers.


Master a few traffic strategies to promote your squeeze page…

Keep sending traffic so you grow your list and make money daily!

Oh yes, you need a PROFESSIONAL autoresponder service so you can capture, store, manage and email your list. I recommend Autorespond.com (it’s what I use).

These 4 components that you see above make up what’s commonly known as a MARKETING/SALES FUNNEL.

If you had heard or read of that phrase before, that’s what it means.

Go get the necessary skills and knowledge to do all the above WELL.

Become a MASTER at building and monetizing lists.

Become an EXPERT in creating proven marketing funnels that captures prospects and turns them into customers.

Here’s an example of one of my million dollar marketing funnels:

Ewen Chia Marketing Funnel

Creating such a marketing funnel isn’t something most people can do overnight.

In all honesty, it will probably take A LOT of effort, time, testing and experience – but it will be worth it.

An option is to outsource the creation to experts, if you have the money!

It will realistically cost you at least $5,000 for a custom marketing funnel like what I have…

Or you can get it FREE…

I’ve a time-sensitive option for you to have your own complete and custom marketing funnel designed, created and set up entirely free. It’s the whole works and something you own and  earn from FOR LIFE.

You can click here to see if it’s still available if you’re interested…

Anyway, once you’ve mastered the “secret” I shared with you today, you’ll NEVER be short  of money again because you can make your own money online. Seriously.

And that’s a real promise.

It works in almost every niche and business model online by the way.

By the way, you may or may not know, but one of my most popular products, “Autopilot Profits”,  teaches you this “secret” in a lot more detail, plus give you tools and more, including a quick 5-minute  set up that you can start with immediately.

You can check it out here.

Hope you enjoyed this post and wishing you a prosperous 2015!

Make Money On Vacation

Well, I just came back from a much needed vacation in Sydney and it was great!

Here’s a pic where we went dolphin watching…


And here’s a video of the dolphins!


Had a great time in Sydney and when I got back…

Here’s what I saw in the mail:

Multiple Monthly Checks, Multiple Streams Of Income!



This is the Hostgator check I was showing you in the video:

So how would you like to get paid while on vacation and live the internet lifestyle?

How did I earn consistent monthly checks from companies like Hostgator, Aweber, Clickbank, SFI and more while on vacation?

How do you make multiple streams of income on COMPLETE AUTOPILOT even when you’re not on the computer??

I want to share with you TWO very important internet marketing strategies to do all these and more, and they are actually VERY SIMPLE…

Multiple Opportunities:


This just means having multiple monetization opportunities, not just one.

By joining different programs that each pay you and by diversifying your income potential, you have MORE opportunities for making sales.

It makes perfect sense.

If you’ve read my “Make Millions Online” book, then you’d know why I said it’s important to focus on making multiple streams of income.

You can still focus, but on a few programs like I do.

Multiple Exposures:


This is one of the many strategies I teach in Super Affiliate Millionaire

All it means is you use multiple channels to expose your marketing, selling and product recommendations.

Don’t stick to just one way to expose your message, use whatever channels you can find and put your message EVERYWHERE!

This means putting your message on your websites, blogs, emails, reports, products, videos, social media and really, anywhere which allows you to reach an audience.

For example, I put my Hostgator affiliate link all over the place.

It’s on THIS very post, on this blog, my other websites, my emails, my products, my facebook page…all at once. You get the drift.

I’m basically creating MULTIPLE exposures for my recommendations to be seen – which works well as you can tell.

Here’s the simple principle why this works:

The more you expose your offers, the more people will see and buy it.



We’re now in December 2014 and 2015 is just around the corner!

Have you started doing anything at all to ensure 2015 is a better year for yourself, your family and your business?

Good news is, it’s not too late (it’s never too late) to start planning and taking action.

(My next post will talk about that and it will be a HUGE WAKE UP CALL for you)

Bad news is, some people will still not take action.

5 years, 10 years from now it will still be the same.

You need to get out of your comfort zone, focus on becoming successful and take action. Remember…

“With every action, comes a reaction”

In other words…

With no action, there will be NO reaction and changes.

Wishful thinking gets you nowhere. You’ve got to make the change YOURSELF.

If you want expert help and a quick start to become successful with your own internet business so that you can begin 2015 on a great foot, then an option is to…
