Here’s what I can see. Other people are siphoning and leveraging on my name, Ewen Chia, just to get traffic to their website. The content on their website is falsely disparaging my credibility. However, the majority of general consumers do not know well enough, and so, they will believe pretty much almost anything they see on the internet. In turn, these website owners will promote their own offer and product. This is certainly a strategy that has been around for a long time, and I am not the only victim. Loads of credible internet marketers and coaches out there have been on the receiving end of fake negative reviews. Beware of negative reviews and the people behind them! Here are a few of the culprits:
Ian Pribyl of StoppingScams.com
He writes about scam products on the internet but his website Stopping Scams is a big internet marketing scam in itself. He has even been called out by fellow internet marketer Desmond Ong. (I know Desmond personally. He’s a nice guy. Certainly not a scammer.) Ian writes fake reviews about various internet marketers’ products, gives them bad ratings, and in turn promotes his own offer as a “credible” alternative, Wealthy Affiliate.
Roderick “Nathaniell” of One More Cup Of Coffee
Like Ian, he has written a lot of fake negative reviews about me as well as other credible marketers, giving my products a dismal ratings. He ends off his reviews by promoting Wealthy Affiliate.
Actually there are more like Ian and Nathaniel, and they all do the same thing. They write negative reviews about other marketers’ products, and in turn promote their own Wealthy Affiliate link. This strategy is unethical but it works, because these Wealthy Affiliates have managed to fool a lot of people out there.
I am thankful that there are some who are a bit more discerning and not easily fooled by negative reviews. Here’s what I read on an “Ewen Chia product review” which I found on YouTube:
(“Black hat marketing” is just another way of saying unethical marketing.)
I want to thank the people who believe in me and the value that I give on a regular basis.
Note: I am not saying ALL Wealthy Affiliates are practicing this unethical marketing method. What I am saying is most of the people I’ve found who are writing fake negative reviews about me are promoting Wealthy Affiliate.
So before you come to your own conclusion, just remember that you can find pretty much everything and anything on the internet. You cannot take whatever information you find online at face value.
