Many of the programs that I write about, I come across them through being emailed by the list owner for other programs that I’ve tested.
The latest one is Profit With Alex which was sent to me by “Shelly West” who runs 30 Minute Money Methods, a program that I reviewed just last week.
One thing that I’ve observed over the years of exposing scam programs is that scammers rarely ever recommend anything legit or useful.
After going over the sales video for Profit With Alex, this seems to be the case with this money making software.
Below, I’ll tell you why you should definitely skip Profit With Alex and opt for something else.
Name: Profit With Alex
Creator: “Alex Goodwin”
Years Online: Since July 2017
Verdict: Cannot recommend because the software does not build websites that offer anything useful to visitors other than the same content from Amazon. The creator also lies about earnings and other things in the video.
What Is This Profit With Alex Software?
Profit With Alex is a software application used to build money making websites that host Amazon products where you can earn money as an Amazon affiliate.
According to Alex Goodwin, who narrates the online infomercial, he is giving you the software for free but you will have to pay $37 for web hosting and that fee comes with a 60 money back guarantee.
Alex demos the software in the video and shows the inside of his Profit With Alex membership area.
The application looks legit and it could be very useful if you’re looking to build Amazon websites but there is still a couple of problems that would stop me from buying this. Actually, more than just a couple of problems.
But before I get into that, here’s a couple of things that I liked about the presentation.
What I Liked About The Profit With Alex Presentation
Usually with these types of presentations that start out with the narrator bashing scammers and telling sob stories without actually showing their faces, you won’t expect them to tell you much about what you’ll be getting.
Instead, expect to be sold purely on hype and be given a vague hint about how you’ll be able to make money with the program.
In the Profit with Alex presentation, I was pleasantly surprised that he not only showed his fake bank account information and doctored affiliate stats but he also demoed the software and showed an example of a website it builds.
At the beginning of the video he mentioned that the method only works in certain countries. I’d heard this before and was certain that this was another one of those videos that used the same script. However, after learning what Profit With Alex was about and how you were supposed to earn money, that statement might be true.
What ruins the legitimacy of this Profit With Alex software though are two things – lies and manipulation in the video and the effectiveness of the software as it is.
Let’s start with the lies…
The Lies of Alex Goodwin
The video presentation by Alex Goodwin contains a lot of lies and manipulative techniques that you should look out for. These lies prevented me from getting this software and recommending it to anyone.
Lie #1: Video Not Available to the General Public
Apparently this video is only available for a limited time and only available by invite only.
This is not true as the video has been only since about July 2017 and will probably be available for a long time after today. The video is hosted on a special page of the ProfitWithAlex.net domain instead of the homepage so that it looks like it’s available by invite only.
The home page indicates that the video has already been taken down and that Profit With Alex is currently closed. Nice set up but it’s still available.
Lie #2: $2 Million Bank Account
I’m not saying that it’s not possible that Alex Goodwin has $2 million in his bank account but the image is doctored because the account uses Alex’s name which is a fictional name (common with these types of videos) and if that’s the case, I’m sure the figures are made up too.
Why do people do this anyway? Don’t they realize that the IRS (or HMRC) might want to know about those figures at some point?
There is a clear case of made up figures elsewhere in the video (I’ll come to that next) so I’m going to have to doubt that this bank account balance is legit.
Lie #3: Amazon Earnings Figures
Alex clearly wants to impress you with his stats. So he shows off his bank account figures and what better way to show you that his software works than to show you how much it earns him?
He sets up the software, builds a site and lets it run for a week. He comes back and it has made over $4000 using some type of auto traffic generator built into the system.
If you look at the image above the figure says $4342 but Amazon would actually show it as $4342.00. I’m not sure where all this traffic and sales came from (he makes the traffic generator sound so secretive) however, it’s hard to believe that he got those results from a brand new Amazon website he set up 7 days ago.
Here’s why it’s so hard to believe.
Websites Need More Than Just Products
If you’re thinking that this software is cool because it built a website populated with Amazon products, you would be disappointed to learn that websites need more than just products and reviews copied from Amazon in order to get traffic and sales.
A website like what is shown in the Profit With Alex video is just a copy of Amazon’s listings and wouldn’t serve as valuable to any visitor. It would hardly rank in Google because it’s just copied content with little to no original content for Google to deem as useful.
Users of that website would be better off just going straight to Amazon and maybe they’d click on a listing and end up there and if they end up buying then you’d still earn a commission. However, you’d have to get that visitor in the first place and unless you’re spending money on paid traffic, then you’re not going to get any free visits that would convert.
With no original or useful content, it’s hard to believe that this website, in just 7 days was able to generate over $4000 in commissions with no work on the part of the website owner. It’s hard to believe that it made anything at all.
I’ve been running affiliate websites online for over 10 years and it just doesn’t work like that.
Alex Goodwin is just plain lying in order to get you to purchase his software.
Lie #4: Software is Free, You’re Paying for Hosting
I’m not sure if you can use your own domain with these websites but if you cant then that’s another reason to avoid using this software.
Another lie that Alex tells is that the software is free but you’re paying $37 for hosting. Well, you’re actually paying for the software because web hosting is usually non-refundable for the part that you’ve used. And hosting is usually an ongoing cost too.
But if they want to spin it like you’re paying for the hosting, it doesn’t matter because you’re still paying $37. For something that you were promised was free.
I Do Not Recommend Profit With Alex
I do not recommend Profit With Alex because of the non-effectiveness of the software application to build useful websites. You would need more than just products filling out the website in order to attract visitors.
You might have the following questions about Profit With Alex and I’m going to put my short answer to what I’ve already mentioned above.
- Can you make money with Profit With Alex? – Highly unlikely.
- Is Profit With Alex a scam? – No. Just a low quality product.
- Any Profit With Alex alternatives – Fresh Store Builder comes to mind (You can try for free).
