I heard about 30 Minute Money Methods sometime back. It has been marketed as a new system that gives you access to ‘secret websites’ which will allow you to make over $500 within 30 minutes of signing up. So, is it all hype or is there some legitimacy to the claim? Check out this 30 Minute Money Methods Review then decide for yourself.
Product being reviewed: 30 Minute Money Methods
WHAT IS 30 MINUTE MONEY METHODS?
30 Minute Money Methods is a Clickbank product that claims to be able to let you make over $500 within the first 30 minutes of signing up. According to the website, anyone at any skill level can take advantage of the methods outlined in the system to make as much money as they want, depending on how much effort you would like to put in. Even if you choose to work for only a few hours every day, you can still make thousands of dollars with 30 Minute Money Methods.
When you log on to the 30 Minute Money Methods website, the first thing you see is a video, a form for you to fill and a bunch of comments on the video’s content. The video looks similar to the ones in many other sites I have reviewed before, with the same format and structure.
The basic structure of the video is simple. There are the promises of quick and easy cash, testimonials, a personal story from the narrator, and finally the appeal for you to make a purchase. There is no mention of what exactly the product is or what it does.
As I sat through the entire video, I admit that the alarms in my head did start to go off. However, I did not want to judge it too quickly. I decided to dig a little deeper before coming to a conclusion.
A woman called Shelly West narrates her very touching story in her video. She was a struggling single mom waitress barely making ends meet. She had tried making money online in vain, first with surveys and then with her blogging, all to no avail. The surveys only ever made her $20 in 3 weeks and with the blogging, she was spending more than she was making. She almost gave up when she stumbled upon a ‘secret website.’
This is where things start getting interesting. Well, with this secret website, she was able to make her first $600 on her first day, and by the end of the week, she had made over $10,000. She thought to herself, if there is one secret website, there must be more similar websites. So, she went looking, and indeed there were other similar easy money-making websites.
She found two more, both of which used methods that were a little different from the first website. It is at this point that she quit her job and decided to spend the rest of her days making money. She uses one website in the morning, another from noon, and the final website at night. They make her well over $2,000 dollars every day. Last year, she made over 1.5 million dollars.
HOW DOES THE 30 MINUTE MONEY METHODS SYSTEM WORK?
It is not clear from the video what exactly it is that you are signing up for. All it says is that for a onetime fee of $37, you can get access to all three of the secret money-making websites and start making money yourself, just like Shelly West did.
Although quite convincing in its delivery, the video does leave you with a lot of questions that need answers. Shelly does hint that the money-making methods she is talking about all run on autopilot, so you will not have to put in much effort to make money. She also assures us that everything is completely legal. But that just leaves the audience more confused. What exactly is it that you are paying $37 for? What do these websites do? Does she just expect us to trust her and hand over our $37 and hope to like what we get?
We get barely any information about the product from the video. It is hard to tell how it works without making a purchase. Plus, there are a few things that immediately arouse suspicion in the video and from the site overall. For example:
- Shelly West sounds like a super made up name. A quick Google search revealed no one who might be affiliated with 30 Minute Money Methods, and certainly no one who made 1.5 million dollars last year. You would think someone who wanted to share her money-making tricks with the world so bravely would at least put up her social media pages or something, or at least brand herself in some way to make her words look more legitimate.
- The testimonials also really threw me off. The people speaking were obviously paid actors. I say this for two reasons. First, their words sounded almost exactly like what Shelly West was saying in her voice over. And I mean word for word. They were clearly reading from a script. Secondly, to confirm my suspicions, I took a screenshot of one of the speakers and did a reverse image search. I found out he was a paid actor from Fiverr. I did the same thing for another person giving a testimonial and discovered the same thing. Many, if not all he people giving testimonials were hired from Fiverr.
- The comment section was another red light. From the look of things, there are lots of comments from happy clients who are already making money. All those comments look obviously fake. Plus, if you try to comment, you are immediately taken to the checkout page. There you will be required to leave your email and credit card information, and your comment will definitely not be posted.
- I dove a little deeper and read their terms and conditions. By using the service, you are agreeing to them sharing your email with ‘other similar websites’ for ‘promotional services’. Meaning they will sell your email information to other websites like them so they can pitch you similar products.
From what I know about such ventures, the websites Shelley is talking about here could be one of three things:
- Drop shipping websites, where you set up an online store and stock it up on other people’s products, then sell them for a commission on such platforms like Shopify. I have seen several websites that promise secret money-making ventures, only to pitch you drop shipping after you have bought their plan.
- Done-for-you sites, which produce content through auto-blogging. Auto-blogging is where a software grabs content from similar sites on the internet and posts them. Auto-blogging sites do not rank well with search engines and are not worth your time.
- A scam site, with only one or two pages, out to get your money and nothing else.
IS IT EFFECTIVE?
Personally, I found 30Minute Money Methods to be an extremely suspicious site. All we know is the claim the video makes, saying that the methods from the three secret sites are extremely easy to use and anyone can implement them to start making money instantly. The secret websites work on auto-pilot, so you do not have to put in more than 30 minutes of work if you do not want to.
According to the site, you can even work for less than a few hours every day and still make thousands of dollars. There is no mention of how specifically this much money is made and nothing about their business model. The video goes around and around in circles before finally asking you for your money, with an urgency clause on top saying that if you do not buy it now, you may regret missing out on an amazing opportunity.
When you complete the form with a random email and a random name, you will be redirected to a checkout page that asks for your credit card information. Even at this point, you still have no idea what you are buying, so it is basically a gamble. If you do decide to exit the page without making a purchase, lo and behold, the price immediately goes down. The 30 Minute Money Methods offer is now presented to you at the low, low price of $27. All of these red flags and tricks to get your money are very telling.
According to their disclaimer, there are no guarantees that you will make any money by using the 30 Minute Money Methods. But didn’t they just insist on exactly the opposite of that in their video pitch? Which leads back to the conclusion that they are only out to get your money.
SO, IS IT WORTH IT?
I honestly believe 30 Minute Money Methods is a gamble that is simply not worth your time. There is absolutely no way anyone can make the kind of money they are talking about online within 30 minutes of signing up to a legitimate website. At best, you will sign up and get drop shipping or affiliate marketing lessons. These lessons will still not let you earn the kind of money they are talking about, at least not immediately.
30 Minute Money Methods is a get-rich-quick scheme that preys on the desperate, lazy and the greedy. They promise you the world without telling you what you have to do to get it. They use several common methods to do this, including trying to pressure you by making you feel a sense of urgency so you can purchase what they are offering without properly thinking things through.
For instance, they say that the $37 asking price is a limited time offer, and the price will soon go up. They also make the claim that these secret websites are limited membership websites, so if the numbers fill up you will be locked out of your chance to make over $500 an hour. Desperate people will jump on such claims, and hand over a lot of their hard-earned money on unverified information.
The only plus side of 30 Minute Money Methods is the fact that it is a Clickbank product. Which means you can get your money back if you change your mind. However, after you sign up, once you are within the platform, you are definitely going to be hit with upsell after upsell. You will not be getting a refund for these subsequent purchases.
A lot of times on the internet, if something sounds too good to be true it probably is. This is exactly the case with 30 Minute Money Methods. There are just too many red flags to ignore. It is better to stick with tried, tested and proven legitimate methods of making money online.
Making money online takes work, just like any other business. No one will pay you to sit and do nothing. Good things do not come easy. If you are serious about making a living online, know that you are going to have to put in a lot of blood, sweat and tears and build your business from the ground up through hard work and perseverance. This is the only way you are going to eventually rake in all those hundreds or thousands of dollars every week.
Having said that, there are legitimate online training programs that will take you by the hand and walk you step-by-step through the process of setting up and running a successful online business. In fact, I used such a program to launch my online business.
It is free to try and requires absolutely no credit card information whatsoever.
