Shaqir Hussyin – Millionaires Challenge System – Review
This review relates to my previous post on My Own Business Eductaion (MOBE).
As I said in that review, Mr. Hussyin’s pop-up page was the introduction that led me to start researching affiliate marketing, and embark on my own ventures – though at considerably less expense than Shaqir Hussyin was pitching… So I should give him due acknowledgement for that at least.
I want to be fair here, and that means almost a split review, on the advice and worth of Shaqir Hussyin, and the program – Millionaires Challenge System – that he promotes.
I’ve watched some of Hussyin’s stuff, his recorded webinars etc., and thought they were valuable, that he knew his stuff, and worth spending the time to go through. I also signed up to his newsletter (which is what directed me to a lot of his information), and as far as newsletters go, it’s one of the better ones in my inbox.
Some of what he says can sound arrogant, he admits as much himself, but I guess he has a right having made the sort of money he has. I’d say he’s more forthright, he’s not obnoxious with it, more refreshingly blunt in my opinion. He certainly knows how to sell himself anyway. One piece I came across made me chuckle when he was deriding other marketers for all doing the same thing, claiming poverty till they cracked the “system,” but he uses exactly the same promotional material himself.
He said something similar re the types of landing pages currently in use, which of course he has a better system for, and from his own info he says this is bad:
But this is an example from one of his own sites:
Quite what the difference is there, I don’t know. If you read any of the blurb for Hussyin’s stuff it’s pretty standard. The same sort of copy and colours, testimonials, pics or ‘potential’ earnings, that scrolls on forever, and you got the idea 2,000 words back.
But that aside, like I said, I do like Hussyin’s general advice.
I don’t doubt Hussyin himself is as successful as he claims, because if you look at the MOBE site you can see photos of him with the owner Matt Lloyd receiving cheques for several millions. Matt Lloyd is also on Hussyin’s site providing a testimonial, as is that other MOBE success story John Chow.
MOBE and the Pharaohs
Hussyin’s success is founded in pushing Matt Lloyd’s MOBE and MTTB products. He knows on which side his bread’s buttered, and he’s not stopping the spreading and buttering just yet! And why should he? It obviously works for him.
So Millionaire’s Challenge System leads you to nothing more than a My Top Tier Business (MTTB) squeeze page, which is a program for promoting Matt Lloyd’s main earner MOBE.
MTTB is basically affiliate marketing, nothing wrong in that, except here you’re paying to have the privilege of marketing the product. That is not usually how it works…
I had a look at some other of Hussyin’s products/services, and most led to the same sign-up page. A page on which you’ll get asked how much you’re willing to invest in Hussyin’s “products.” These products, are nothing more than licenses for further sales of the MOBE program, and for which the first commission will be Hussyin’s.
Like I said in my review of MOBE, you will be selling nothing more than the training to sell the training courses. And you can only receive commissions for those courses you’ve purchased a license to sell i.e. bought into first yourself. You can sell the higher level courses, just you won’t get anything for it; the next guy higher up in the chain, your “mentor” will.
It’s pyramid selling and you’re only going to make money from selling something to people who are very unlikely to make any money themselves from it. It’s pass the parcel, except you’ve got to purchase that parcel first. You’re not selling anything substantive or with intrinsic worth, you’re basically selling the get-rich-scheme itself. You’re simply promoting and selling air.
It’s like a program that shows you how to sell a program for how to wash your car the best, most sparkling way. You don’t ever wash any cars (or even need one) or get the products to do it, you just get told how to sell the program on how to do it. That’s where you make the money, from the commission on passing the receipt on to the next poor sod.
How you sleeping at night?
If you can do that and sleep at night, then by all means gamble your own money first, and it’s a big gamble of thousands of dollars – and that’s just to get started. And the person above you, just like you, their only concern is getting you to buy the next level.
The vast of majority of people who buy into this are not going to make anything: they’re going to lose money. You’re about to become part of a huge sales team, and if you haven’t got that “used car salesman” aspect to your personality, or really do believe you can sit back after buying in, and your riches will be taken care of behind the scenes by MOBE, then you’re going to be in for the first loss in the chain.
But maybe your mentor and the high pressure sales – sorry – support team will be able to convince you that’s due to your training not being advanced enough, and you need to put some more $$$$ into the scheme, in order not to lose your money, and start making some.
And maybe you will. Some evidently have. But you are taking one almighty gamble, with no guarantees and without giving any value for your customers; and it’s not customers so much as suckers you’re seeking.
I said above that there’s no guarantees, and that’s true despite the “refund” assurances. The conditions are so loaded on that so-called promise as to be worthless. You’re not getting your money back once you’ve plugged in your credit card details and sent them to MOBE or any affiliate like Shaqir Hussyin.
The training itself is not worth the asking price. I mean, come on… in the age of the internet, do you really think there’s some secret formula that’s being hidden in MOBE’s digital products that you couldn’t learn for free elsewhere or receive actual, honest, training in for a fraction of the price?
The worth is in the commission to be had from the inflated license price, not the “product” or knowledge. All these pitches are of a sameness too; some twenty-something kid with no knowledge of selling and flat broke two years ago, is now the latest millionaire business guru, and already helped scores of people make it in that short time as well! Pictures of exclusive resorts and luxury cars are the standard hooks, as are the bank account pictures.
And those toys may be all true for the guy pitching it, but you’d be as well signing up to some poker player’s always-win, guaranteed system. That’s how the poker player made his money, selling his system, not from it.
I’m not saying to treat all internet entrepreneurs advice as suspect, there are very definitely some people to sit down, shut up and listen to! But they were selling more than air, and don’t need you to buy their advice to stay where they are. In fact, most legit players give a lot of great advice away for free.
UPDATE: As of June 2018, MOBE has been shut down by FTC.
Don’t get scammed
So, where can you find a legit system or source to go to? The only place I’ve found so far that passes that test is Wealthy Affiliate.
It’s free to join, no credit card for “verification purposes,” and you get a week of full access to the site for nothing as part of that, which is more than enough time to see if you want to stick around. And if you do, and want to sign-up, you’re not getting just “air” and you’re not paying $$$$ or even $$$ for the privilege.
Find out what making money online really entails. Check out my review of Wealthy Affiliate here and make your own mind up thereafter: it won’t cost you a dime.
