Shawn Casey Bio

Shawn Casey is a well-known Internet marketing expert known for his popular course Mining Gold on the Internet. He focuses on helping beginners get up and running with their own Internet business and provides strategies to generate profits within the first 1-3 weeks. In addition, he also is experienced with using joint ventures and list building for traffic.

Shawn Casey Detailed Overview

Shawn was previously known as a corporate lawyer and progressed on to becoming one of the top earners in SFI. He then branched out and started creating his own products to Internet marketers, focusing on helping people new to the business.

His main product is the Mining Gold on the Internet book. The book promises to help you make your first $1000 in 5-15 days. He gives you a step-by-step 15 day play to help beginners familiarize themselves an Internet business. This goal of this book is to build the confidence of people who are new and give them a taste of success.

One of the biggest strategies Shawn focuses on is joint ventures. Shawn favors joint ventures because it doesn’t require any advertising and you only pay your partners when they bring in sales. The concept is very appealing to beginners as many people do not have much capital to work with.

However, the problem I see with introducing joint ventures to beginners is that it requires a lot of work. In my opinion, there is a lot that goes into a product from doing market research, creating the actual product, writing sales copy, and setting up product delivery. Joint ventures also require that you have a product that people want, a site that converts, contracts, and more. I actually think it’s an advanced strategy, not a simple one as many people think.

Shawn’s other popular product Desperate Money, focuses on strategies to help bring in quick cash. While the book had many useful tips for people looking to get out of a desperate situation or looking to make a quick buck, I’m not fond of short-term strategies. It’s important for people to see that this is a real business and focus on long term strategies for dependable income.

One thing I really like about Shawn is that he teaches many different ways you can bring targeted traffic to your site. Most products focus on one or two methods but Shawn suggests using multiple sources of traffic to bring in profits. I strongly agree with this as if one source of traffic dies out, your whole income will be cut off. The only way to build a long term business is to constantly seek out new sources of traffic and constantly grow them.

Shawn sells various products such as the Desperate for Money book, Easy Profit Strategies Club, Internet Law Compliance package, Recession Rescue System and Headline Creator Pro software. He also sells a course on list building with Tell Knudson which has been met with great reviews. But overall, his products receive mixed reviews as people with Internet marketing experience complain that there is generic information while beginners appreciate the newbie-friendly info.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

Shawn Casey Reputation

Shawn’s products are primarily focused for beginners. He covers many different subjects in his books such as joint ventures, email marketing, market research, and more. However, Internet marketers that have some experience and are looking for advanced information should look elsewhere because they’ll already be familiar with what he teaches.

Shawn had great success in many different businesses but he is mainly known for selling to other Internet marketers. When I compared his products to other ones in the market, I found that the quality of his products was substandard. Shawn mainly covers many subjects broadly and helps you get ideas of how the business works. But if you’re looking for all the details, there are many better training courses in the market. I recommend his training only to beginners who want an overview of the Internet marketing process.

Not Worth Your Time

Shawn Casey is a true hustler... from the word go... and that's what he'll tell if you listen to him carefully... he'll send out email after email about other products and he doesn't care if they work or not... that's why you have to come here, im report card, to get the facts. To me how can you trust anyone that will endorse anything just for money...

Spammed by telephone and email

I first had a bad experience with Shawn Casey and Tellman Knudsen early last year. I somehow got on their outrageous mailing list and bought something from them. My credit card kept getting $1 charges. When I complained they said it was my CC company. So, I canceled it all. Then, more emails came to a different email I have. I would unsubscribe, they would pop up on another email. Finally I changed emails totally.

Then, after forgetting all about them, I foolishly bought something from Casey, not remembering his name. That is when the phone calls started. They were persistent at the worst time of day for me. When I answered I got a very aggressive and arrogant tele-sales person. After his pitch, I politely said "No, thank you" and "Bye, have a good one. "

Well, that was not good enough. Rudely he said, "What don't you want to make money? I responded with, "If this expensive training by Casey is so good, why are you working as his telemarketer? Why aren't you taking the course and getting rich, like you are promising me?"

He kept at me and I have my responses to those type of people - not to be repeated here :-)

He would not take NO for an answer and I finally had to hang up on him. He then immediately called back again and again until I had to yell at him, "What part of NO do you not understand!". Unbelievable. The phone calls finally stopped from that area code (I have call display) but started up again from another area code. Doing some investigating I figured it out.

Periodically I get calls from both those area codes but I don't answer. As a Canadian I have no recourse, but I can comment here so others stay away from that guy.

If you're not an agressive marketer, you may not like Shawn Casey

I have purchased several of Shawn Casey's products. He is one of the most Aggressive marketers online and that is exactly what he teaches. His methods may be difficult or impossible for some people to apply but they absolutely do work. I agree that he teaches simple systems that you can learn other places online free. (He even calls one “Simple, Sharp, Short”) However, having a "system" (which most people don't have) is only one component to building a business model. Methodical, traceable application that is constantly being adjusted to meet current market conditions and company goals (which most people never set) is an imperative that most businesses ignore. No wonder 80% (I'm being conservative) of businesses fail every year. Like his methods or not... I challenge you to make a valiant effort to truly apply just ONE of his own systems (not an affiliate product he endorses or an advanced course that some marketing company is selling for him) Use one of his free offers if you don't want to buy anything... but full out apply what you're learning. Go on... Amaze yourself…. and NO… I don’t work with or for him. He has no idea that I even exist. I’m just appreciative of what I’ve learned from his products and what they have done for my pocketbook.

Can be a bit much

When I started out in internet marketing about three years ago, I was starting from ground zero. Somehow I found Shawn Casey's website and joined Mining For Gold. It seemed that everything had a price on it and if I didn't buy one thing I was pushed to buy something else. The one good thing I found, and it was actually free, was something his brother Scott did. It was a PDF called Simple-Sharp-Short-Shock update, and it takes you step by step(with full clickable resources)on how to set up your first website. This is the only good thing that I have experienced with Shawn Casey.

Shawn Casey - IVYcapital or ici

I signed up months ago with Shawn Casey, I tried his Mining Gold and bought into his sales gimmick.. When I asked for a refund.. he took his time and also gets you to check boxes for different products(IE Ewen Chia), so when you cancel Shawn's product, you must also go back and find ALL the other programs or systems as well. Where I really got the screws put to me is when his office has another name IVY Capital or Icapital.. There they took me through extensive drilling and finding out my credit information?? They hype you up and then try to get all or any credit you have on any credit cards, lines of credit you name it! They won't take approximates, they only want real figures.. They made my husband go on the phone and made sure he was hyped up too! and the reason for this was that they had all of our credit cards and lines of credit covered as he was the Prime on most of the Credit! I mean they made me get my balances on every dime they would try to con you out of? I should have seen this coming only, it was my first real online business. Well that's just part of their scam, when they add up all of your balances and find out whether they can get $1000 or $100,000. If you go out and do what they want your screwed! When we finally caught on and it's all hype.. how your going to earn thousands a week??Ya Right! Then they get you to call their Customer Rep-Supervisor they say and she encourages you to go to your bank and take out that money and send it to them! If you are out of the hype and DO NOT get the money... they harass you and if you say that you have caught them after checking them on scams they won't call you or even let you bring up your concerns? They outright deny any and all accusations! That you must not listen to others as they are all the unhappy people and because it didn't work for them that they are losers! Yes that's right!LOSERS! This Rachel girl was something else! They could walk the walk but not talk the talk! I have had several others calls relating to IVYCapital and ICIcapital, I went on Complaints Board and there they were! Their denial was sooo lame!

When you get cold calls from these people and they call you a loser, someone who doesn't want to earn or start a business.. Your a Canadian and you can't do anything to us!Your stupid! You need to have money to make money! Obviously, when they are caught they HATE it!

Lying, Cheating, Spamming Jerk!

He spams my inbox with tons of messages: "Sign up for this!" "Sign up for that!"

Then, when I do sign-up I get overcharged. He doesn't do 95% of the things he says he will. Plus, some of his programs have a no-cancellation policy.

Someone should report him to the Better Business Bureau!

He is an okay fellow

Shawn Casey is one of the guys that you are most skeptical with at first. He does make wild claims of making $1000 in a half a month and it is not guaranteed but it is possible. I see his products for a person who is already on the track of internet marketing and not especially for a newbie. I would do more of a background check on him but he is really great at showing you how to get that traffic. I like him and I don't hate, but just research him.

Good for a fast learner

Shawn Casey was one of the first persons I learned from. It was overwhelming all the information he gave out, because he gives you good tips and tricks, but delivers them very fast. It didn't let me put them to work because I thought that everyday the new one was better, but either way he is a good marketer, and does share some good tips to make money and very fast. Sometimes his claims about making money super fast are too extreme, even though they are doable I would recommend him to someone with a little experience because of the fast pace of this guy.

One thing I didn't like about him is that everyday he is trying to sell on you, you just have to ignore those messages.

Good if you are a fast learner.

Shawn Casey - great tips

During the course of my research, he is one of the few who have a good reputation with the BBB. I have not actually spoken to Shawn Casey, but I do receive regular communication from him. I decided to try his program because of his claims to make a lot of money working online, and he stressed that it was legitimate. He was extra convincing because I was offered a supposedly limited deal that I could try risk free. I have enjoyed his 27 day course on building an internet business, and will note that he will supply you with the information necessary to avoid the legal pitfalls that most just want to skip over. Overall he offers decent value for the money. I recommend it!

A very persistent man in selling his products

I had signed up in his newsletter after someone sent me an email regarding his product, and from day one until now he never stops sending me bunches of emails pushing his products. A very persistent guy who is really trying to hook you to buy. Also found out that some of his offers are partnered with other internet marketers like Tellman Knudson and Michael Jona. I have stayed a member, but you can cancel it anytime. The daily emails they send me and the newsletter I find interesting and very helpful for people who like to know more about internet marketing. Though sometimes I felt irritated due to the 3 emails per day that I received from this guy. Anyway, that's his business so all I have to do is learn from what he offers.

Wish I were in his shoes

I joined a Shawn Casey program several months ago after receiving numerous advertisement emails from him in my inbox. I guess I unknowingly signed up to his list. I decided to try his program, because of his claims to make a lot of money working online, and he stressed that it was legitimate. He was extra convincing, because I was offered a supposedly limited deal that I could try risk free. Well, I gave up my credit card information, and tried it out for a while. It was completely overwhelming for me - because I'm a newbie, and there was so much information, and I had absolutely no idea where to start. It was definitely information overload for me, so I decided not to pursue it. I did receive a prompt refund, and if Mr. Casey puts out another program that is assembled more concisely for a newbie, I may give it a try.

Helpful for a newbie

I just purchased Shawn Casey's program. It is designed for beginners and they do stress the importance of going through the material step by step - not jumping around - in order to avoid become confused or feeling overwhelmed. I have found much of the info thus far quite helpful and it has served to answer many of the questions that have plagued me and kept me from launching into business. I am sure that much of the content could be found elsewhere - but this just happened to be the one I purchased and for me it is serving the purpose.

Shawn Casey's newbie training gets a D

I purchased Shawn's biz in a box and mining gold as a completely green newbie. Although the writing was in layman's terms, I had no idea how to go about following the directions. Now, a couple years later and with some experience I might actually get it, but for the complete newbie the steps seem impossible feats. Another problem I have is that now the whole biz in a box is a freebie, had I known at the time I would have invested in something else and waited for the free product. Personally, I will not purchase another program from this guy, but I might still take a look at a freebie from him.

To be emulated, not embraced

I have not actually spoken to Shawn Casey, but I do receive regular communication from him.

I found him to be persistent in wanting people to join the services he promoted, or sell certain products. His ideas are not really unique, and not always original, but he is good at seizing opportunities where others may see nothing.

For those who have little or no knowledge on Internet Marketing he can be seen as a savior. Others may see his true niche or area of expertise. This does not obliterate the fact that he can be quite convincing. Possibly he has the gift of the gab.

His style can be emulated, but not completely embraced.

Shawn Casey

Im a member of his website and I like how he explains everything to you step by step. He also has an email that he sends to us entitled "27 days to internet success" that helps with the process of this business, and it can also be tied into other ventures you are pursuing.

Kind of Confusing to Me

My first and only dealing with Shawn Casey have been with his free "Business in A Box". I was very new to the whole idea of internet anything when I came across this site and the thought of being taught how to actually build a business on the net for free was quite appealing.

Upon receiving this product via e-mail, I found it to be a bit confusing for me, having no knowledge of internet marketing or even the lingo that is used.

I think that if Shawn Casey really wants to help people, his intentions are good, but he needs to word his information so it is easy for everyone to understand.

F- Worthless for the Entrepreneur, A- Awesome to himself

Shawn Casey is a product pusher... pure and simple. Once you are on his list, expect the latest and greatest product he is jv'ing or recommending, for cash, I am sure, every 5 minutes of the day. Obviously, some of the information presented above by these reviewers is just plain false. Shawn's 10K Club, which I was a member, was the single most worthless product I have purchased on the internet. The customer service of his organization was horrible, just downright embarrassing for a man running a multi-million dollar empire. Let me give you the run down on what will happen to you if you join a Shawn Casey program. You will receive a really, what I would term, New York/New Jersey type of pushy email about the greatest product ever known. You will then go to his site, only to find it is not his product. You then are trying to do your due diligence on the new product and developer, when Shawn hits you with a 2nd, a 3rd, a 4th email about the next greatest product ever. All the while, his videos lack any type of substantial content beyond rudimentary basics that even most rookies could figure out using free sites.

Okay... time for my ban... Shawn Casey is what I term in this business a "Product Pimp". All he cares about are sales... he does not care about you. Remember this review and proceed with caution. Avoid providing any regular email you use for business to Shawn, even if interested in a product. Use an alternative email so he can continue to build his list, but you don't have to deal with his constant spam sales emails.

One of the few...

... Who have a good reputation.

During the course of my research, he is one of the few who have a good reputation with the BBB. He's been in business long enough to have learned the ins and outs of how to set up a good foundation to build a business on. I have enjoyed his 27 day course on building an internet business, and will note that he will supply you with the information necessary to avoid the legal pitfalls that most just want to skip over (probably the legal background). His course may not deal with some of the finer points, but will give you the basics to fill in later.

Overall I have to give him points on mechanics and skill at delivering a good value for what you receive.

Shawn Casey Is A Good Marketer, and Slick Promoter!

I became acquainted with Shawn casey about 4 years ago. I signed-up for one of his programs, it was so long ago I forget which program, but before I learned the program I had signed-up for, he began to promote another program to me, which caused me to have information overload. I quickly lost interest in both programs!

I believe his Gold Mining program to be worthwhile, but don't expect to be hand-held through the process, unless you pay a hefty fee.

That's why I say, Shawn Casey is a good marketer, and slick promoter, so be cautious about buying all of his programs, before they create a profit, FOR YOU!

Sign-up free, and make your Fast First $50 by tomorrow. Then promote your Referral link, and get paid every Friday at 4pm Central time, like I have for 4 years, without spending a dime.

Take 10 seconds and sign-up....






 
 
 
Decent Experience

I have Shawn Casey's free "Business In A Box" and as a newbie have found it very informative, helpful, and easy to follow. If you ever see it offered I recommend getting it. I also joined his memberships sites Mining gold and Easy Profit Strategies Club. I got very little out of MG, but EPSC is loaded with everything a newbie needs, video tutorials, frequent webinars and much more. I found his webinars on building a Wordpress blog extremely useful. The one thing that disturbs me about Shawn Casey is his too many emails that are always hawking another $7 ClickBank product. Overall he offers decent value for the money.

Great tips and tricks for you to use

I didn't actually buy his product, but I did sign up for the newsletter. I found it to be very helpful and I have used a lot of his tips and tricks in my promotions of my own website. I would recommend at least signing up for the newsletter. You can always cancel it later if you don't like it.
