Rich Jerk Description

The Rich Jerk is an Internet marketing guru who first hit the Internet marketing industry with his Rich Jerk book. What made him stand out was his arrogant and rude, yet honest sales message where he challenged other Internet marketers and frowned on those who weren’t successful. His real identity is Kelly Felix, an entrepreneur that runs many high earnings sites across various niche markets.

Rich Jerk Detailed Overview

The Rich Jerk is one of the most controversial figures in Internet marketing. He has created a personality that is arrogant and humorous yet blunt and enlightening. After becoming successful in his own businesses, he released his book the Rich Jerk. This is a book containing many of his personal marketing strategies as well as the few tricks he has up his sleeves.

The book covers many broad topics such as affiliate marketing, wholesaling, search engine optimization, and conversion strategies. What he does is to give you the basics, then give you the core strategies, and gives you a few little tricks to help you out. He goes straight to the point and helps you understand the bigger picture so you can cut through all the fluff and get results.

The book comes with access to the membership forum, a free affiliate website, and a 60 minute consultation. Customers are greeted with an offer to his membership site, more personal coaching, and his other programs once they go into his sales funnel. The book itself costs $9.95 and is a cheap entrance free to his other works.

Aside from his Internet marketing strategies, The Rich Jerk is big on investing on other sources of income such as real estate, Forex, and stocks. In fact, he has released a book on Real Estate teaching people how to broker deals with bad credit and no capital. It’s clear that The Rich Jerk is an expert in wealth building as he can see the bigger picture of it all.

The Rich Jerk has other products such as the Sneaky System and the Rich Jerk Evolution membership site. These products go deeper into his strategies and also introduce new ones into the mix. Both his Sneaky System and The Rich Jerk Evolution have received great reviews from customers and many people appreciate his straightforward teaching style.

Rich Jerk Reputation

If you take a look around, you’ll find that many people are either annoyed by the Rich Jerk or appreciate his blunt attitude about marketing and business. I think it’s more important to look at the value he is delivering in his products and services. His products are very straightforward and do deliver great content so he is a reputable Internet marketer. Although some may be wary of his business practices because of the image portrayed, there is a solid customer support behind his business and he always honors his refunds if you are not satisfied.

What a bunch of Jerks!

The rich Jerk is one of the first things we tried and were going to test. And let me tell you what you get;

After we paid the small initial fee (I think it was $27) there were of course multiple up-sell offers which is to be expected. However it was after the up-sells the phone calls started... a lot of them. A pushy salesman is on the other end of the line very much trying to get you to spend thousands of dollars through them on advertising and services.

It did not stop there. When we scheduled a conference call after they bugged us so much to hear what they had to say the salesman got the times mixed up because of time zones and left a bunch of degrading comments and messages on the voicemail. When I tried to get through to someone on customer service about how insulting and unprofessional this person was I was blown off.

Stay away from the jerks!

Just trying to rip you off

I bought this some months back because it was only $10. After I bought it I was given all this information that was actually quite complex. I thought it was okay but a waste of money to me. Then things got worse. They spammed me with phone calls trying to get me to sign up for stuff to get bank and credit card details. Very suspicious. They also gave me a website that was 'supposed' to make me money. Spent 2 days trying to make it work. Nothing.

After buying this I can tell you that you are paying for harassment. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.

Can you say More Money!

Once I checked online and read a few reviews about how this program was so good I wanted to give it a try. I am currently trying to get traffic to the free site that he promises. Once I purchased the the information I was referred to other money making products, not to mention all the calls I received from some guy from the Rich Jerk telling me that if I had thousands more to invest I can get my very own coach to show me step by step how to make money in my first 30 days online. Then some other guy calls me on the behalf of the Rich Jerk Program telling that he can show me how to open up a business account and getting loans once I have opened up this business account and all these great tax write offs he can get me if I pay $1000, which the man who called me was a very fast talker and that was a turn off alone and he just seemed to want to get my credit card information so quickly. That raised red flags! I would suggest anyone looking into The Rich Jerk Program, try all the free stuff first, since most of the information he wants you to pay for is pretty much free online nowadays anyway or outdated.

Not that good

I've bought this guide long time ago when I found him bragging about his wealth that he has gained on some site. Because it only cost about 10 bucks, I bought it with a thought that I won't lose much money even if this guide is just a scam. After reading it for a while, I found that some of his tips and guides are obsolete and can actually be found on blogs for free.

However, some of his tips (especially the Forex tips) are quite new for me and I haven't really known about it until I read this guide. Some of the testimonials in his site said that they could gain $5,000 within only 20 hours. This is very exaggerated and IMPOSSIBLE even if you follow all of his guides 20 hours non-stop. My result is not really good. I gained about $50 for my first week and with support from other guides from another source, I gained about $150 the next week after that. I would say that this guide isn't really worth 10 bucks because the quality is almost the same as the free guides out there. C- for this guide.

One of the Best eBooks Ever Written

The Rich Jerk says in his eBook, that he's "not going to hold your hand" and he doesn't. He does however give you what you need to make money online in a no-nonsense "this is how it is", "take it or leave it style".

RJ gives you the solid fundamentals for earning as much as you want online, and his eBook is responsible for me earning thousands over not too long a period of time. I still earn a consistent income as a result of applying the techniques taught in the Rich Jerk. Everything he teaches works, and these strategies can be taken as far as you want to take them.

A newbie would do just fine with the Rich Jerk, but I would say that it is more for the person who has been trying for some time to make money online, but hasn't put all the pieces of the puzzle together in order to achieve this.

The techniques taught in the Rich Jerk are what will allow someone to go from making no, or perhaps just a few sales online to earning a consistent income on the Internet. The Rich Jerk is in my opinion one of the best IM eBooks ever written, however be warned that it is not for the lazy. You have to implement the techniques taught and work towards your goal.

Make Money as a Website Tester

 
 
 
Not Really Anything New

I signed up for this product about 6 months ago. I thought it was too good to be true, but the reviews seemed decent and it wasn't very expensive at the time; so it seemed worth the try. He did give me a website and he did give me the ebook. I read through the ebook and honestly it was very basic stuff. There really wasn't any big secrets in his ebook to make serious money. He did give me a site as he promised. It looked sort of promising but nothing intensely crazy like he said. He said you would have a money making website, well it did not really work out. It was not already making money. After reading his ebook and looking at the website he basically was just telling you how to make a money making website. The Rich Jerk said it would be a premade money generating website. No, he actually gives you a website and gives you an ebook and you have to figure it out yourself how to make it generate money. Which getting a website to make money is a full time job, so if you have the time and the dedication, you could possibly implement his idea and course to make a decent amount of money. Remember, earning money on a website works out for some people but most it fails. For it to be successful you must put the time into it.

Overall an interesting product

Rich Jerk was an interesting program I stumbled upon about three and a half years ago on a discussion board. I was searching for a good information product on the affiliate marketing subject for quite some time and the one I found proved to be worth the read. I was actually able to download the book for free and hadn't paid any fees so this made everything much better. I decided to join the mailing list and I am glad I did since from time to time I am receiving some great tips and tricks on my business. Certainly the e-mails I am getting are very comprehensive and informative. The mails are mostly targeted to the affiliate marketing and Forex though a lot more topics are covered but the first two I found to be the most detailed ones. Thanks to the product I discovered a nice affiliate program and it actually proved to be worth spending time with, though I can't say I was able to earn much money out of it. The thing I liked was how the author explained everything - in a bit rude way and this definitely is not a con and made Rich Jerk more interesting to me. In my opinion the product is not bad and I am mostly recommending it to beginners because they might find some useful advices here and there. I give it a B grade.

Good for newbie’s

This is the very first eBook that brought me into the Internet marketing. This guy combines arrogance with humor and it was a fun read though. Let me make things clear. This eBook is not for those who are already aware of all the basics of internet marketing. Here are my comprehensive pros and cons of this:

Pros:

One of the first products which revolutionized the internet marketing world.

Extremely detailed and covers all the basics that you need to know about internet marketing.

The information is very well explained with a little bit of arrogance with some humor. Which really makes marketing fun instead of a boring job.

He also offers a free domain which is a plus point if you don’t want to spend money on it.

Extremely affordable

Cons:

His newsletters are really like a spam. It does not contain any specific information but just his crazy adventures.

Even though he releases the same book with updated version, still the book is outdated in techniques and in today’s world if you use the same techniques then you get crushed by your competitors in no time.

The free domain he offers is just worthless in my opinion. It’s just a bait to hook the customers.

To conclude, this book is fun to read and if you are serious on taking your IM Business to the next level I recommend you to stay away from this book. This is like an introductory book on internet marketing, nothing new or spectacular.

This guy is a jerk

I didn't buy this e-book at first. I signed up on the website so I could get e-mails from the rich-jerk. The e-mails were pretty much useless and just told you to keep buying the book. When I joined I was told by the "rich jerk" that I would get a free domain, which meant he would give me a free website. He sure didn't. It ended up having to cost around $8.99 per month.

I don't even believe that you can make a lot of money through this program even if you bought it. This guy is probably just trying to rip you off, getting you to pay cash for nothing, and that's how he is getting his money.

Not sure if he is rich, but he is a jerk

Let me state that I had bought this ebook about a year ago. As the price is only $10, I figure for the cost of a pizza I could get this book so I ordered.

All of the information in this book is no big secret or hasn't been talk about before. However, the information in this book is put together in outline form, and makes it very easy to follow along and understand and makes for an easy read. There is not a whole lot of fluff, just basic and too the point.

This book is filled with his own affiliate/referral links, which is maybe why he only sells it for $10 because if you use his links he makes more that way.

Some information you will find is different affiliate networks you can sign up for. Directories to list your website on. Domain and Hosting companies to setup your website. Again with a little time on Google you could find out this information yourself.

Biggest upset with this ebook was getting on his mailing list, every other day you receive emails from this joker telling you are basically worthless and too do something about. Seemed liked he was always trying to sell you something else.

I rated this a C .. Just Ok. Because there is some basic information, and for the price you really can't complain too much.

Funny guy, worth a look at his programs

I do like the RJ's rude and arrogant approach as it makes affiliate marketing a lot more interesting. Luckily I never needed to buy his eBook as you can download it for free at MagicGuru.com. I signed up to his mailing list and I do enjoy his emails and I do learn quite a lot from him. I particularly enjoy his tips on making it in the forex and real estate industries. As for the affiliate programs, they are worth a try as he guides you through it but I don't like the hosting service as it doesn't offer as much as most hosting companies. But I think what stands out with this is the arrogance and rude approach and I think most people will relate to that even if it pisses them off. I've made a few dollars with RJ but not that much. If you are serious with building an affiliate empire I would recommend you use his tips and sign on to his mailing list, but don't sign up to the other additional fees and programs as they are useless. Overall I think RJ is not as bad as most affiliate programs out there.

Learn How to be a Successful Hollywood ScreenWriter

 
 
 
The e-book is entertaining but not fantastic The hosting service sucks

Months ago I clicked on a Google ad and ended up on RJ's site (The Rich Jerk). This became the start of an interesting journey:

Everyday I received an e-mail that told me how stupid I am and that I would remain a loser forever if I didn't buy his e-book and began training as his course would instruct me to do.

The Rich Jerk would also provide me with a free domain.

Then after some weeks I did two things (I will already here tell you that you should only do one of them)

I did this: 1) I bought his e-book for 10$ and 2) I signed up for a free domain.

I recommend that you buy the book for the 10$ - It is worth the price; and it is not that long either, so it is not a waste of time reading it, even if you don't intend to follow his strategy in your own business.

But I do NOT recommend that you sign up for a free domain; because it is not free! In order to use it then you have to sign you to (his?) web-hosting - And not only is it over priced (I signed up and paid anyway), BUT at least for me it never worked properly, so after 10 days I claimed a refund (which I after some argument got in full)

CONCLUSION:

1) Get on his mailing list and read the insulting (but funny) e-mails - Think of them as part of a course in Internet Marketing (BUT when you read the mails, then consider how to write 'standard automatic' e-mails that are relevant to as many of the persons on the mailing list as possible, because as I see it this is the weak spot in his method. However I can hear him laugh and say: What the f*** I am rich anyway)

2) If 10$ means nothing to you, then you should also buy his e-book

3) Do NOT waste time and money on the free domain he offers you

Great Ebook , But Not For Newbies

For the low price of $10 this book is a catch. The information on his ad copy alone is way beyond this price, and will get an increase in your click through rate of your ads & also the conversion rate easily enough. I've used this ad copy many times with great results!

Regarding his techniques and tips on review sites, it's on the money, simple and no fluff. If you do apply with such ad copy you will have lots of sales.

Tips on SEO, whitehat & blackhat techniques are really great, providing a list of truly valuable sites that are tested and proven to work. Finally you get extra features like access to RJ forum which is a great place to learn and will help you around if you're a complete newbie, but it won't be easy.

Though these strategies are for more experienced IMers, my advice is you should get this ebook along with his sneaky system with step by step videos. They'll teach you everything you need to get awesome review sites that will get you many sales if you stick at it and take action.

If you already can setup a wordpress site, optimize it with SEO plugins, and write decent reviews using his ad copy method, you can pull this out easily enough.

How much is your time worth

I read the ebook, but you have to have the power of self discipline and motivation to make any money. I was not convinced that this is what a person down on his or her luck can do. What you read in the ebook sounds so inviting and easy to do, but you have to have the mindset to do it.

I couldn't help thinking while I was reading the ebook, that the person is getting rich off selling the ebook and not from the information supplied therein. For someone that is new to the internet and wants to make money, this book may not be the ideal way to learn.

There is no easy way to make money on the internet, no matter what anyone tells you. There are real jobs that you can do instead of get rich schemes that aren't for everyone. You might wonder if I applied what I read in the ebook, and the answer is NO. I need to make money working from home, but I make money working a freelance job rather than sitting around wondering if I am going to make any money from this book.

I don't like being tricked

I too joined and thought what the heck.. I will spend this little bit so I can earn a lot and learn to earn. That's when I found out, like everyone else, it takes more money. I suppose if you have money to invest it might be ok. But I do not like being mislead and it made me feel cheated. Then.. you get emails all the time. I know autoresponders are great, but not when they fill up my email everyday with a bunch of blah blah blah. If someone is offering a report can't they just give the info in a concise way and leave out all of the hype and junk. That stuff just wastes everyone's time.

Haven't Made Any Money.. YET

I saw this website on a traffic exchange site and decided to give the product a try. The price was only $10, and my thought was that if I could spend only that amount and profit, it was well worth it.

I then read this e-book and learned that it takes more than just the money I spent on the e-book to make this system work. Yes, the information is great, but unless you are one that can continue to invest in a website and hosting, you won't get very far. I was one who could not afford to spend the additional money to get a website and such, so the e-book just sat unused.

Recently, I revisited the e-book and am now slowly putting the system to use. I like the way everything is laid out and the way it is explained. It is a very straightforward system.

Many people do like the Rich Jerk's way of advertising and the way he makes fun of marketers. I think that his way of doing things is a nice change to the norm.

I did receive many marketing e-mails from him once I purchased the e-book. That was one thing I didn't care for. It seemed like he was always trying to sell me another product, and in fact, he was.

Overall, I think that this is an okay product, I just think that he should tell us up front that we will have to have a website and such.

Don't be fooled

When I started looking for opportunities to earn money online, The Rich Jerk was one of the first sites I bumped into. Having learned previously from another Internet Marketer a trick they all have to use--offering a "free money-making-site", I signed up to his offer to examine what's the dirty little secret inside. True enough, in his additional information he then honestly said that there is no such thing as free. The website he's offering has to be hosted and have a domain which you will have to spend some money before you can earn. And of course that's where their trick begins because he then points you to an affiliate hosting site where he earns commission from your monthly hosting payment.

It was not easy for a newbie like me. Things like SEO and traffic and promotion for the website, they are just overwhelming information.

And of course once you opted in to his newsletter he will send you emails convincing you to buy more ebooks about Internet marketing. This is how he gets filthy rich.

Mixed feelings about this one

Well I don't really like people who talk like jerks, but the things he promised to give for just $10 forced me to buy it. After all I wanted something that was short and to the point and not like other e-books which have long chapters. So I was quite impressed with this jerk because he was going to teach everything in just 40 pages and at a much cheaper rate than other books of the same kind.

However after I purchased it, I found out that they won't provide me a free website and that I would have to pool in my money in order to get one. Although the things he said were good in terms of making a mark on the web, I was irked to receive lots and lots of telemarketing calls and spam like email. They always wanted to sell you some thing or the other 24x7. That just makes me wonder if the rich jerk is so well off financially (which is why he was selling the book at just $10), then why did he need to spam us with so many offers?

If I was rich, I would prefer relaxing in my mansion rather then spam people with offers! This book is good for you only if you don't mind getting spammed!

Not What I Expected

I decided one day, for my own curiosity to buy the e-book. The tips were great, and I have no complaints about the book, that, I would recommend. Now the only thing that really irritated me was once I put in my information, the calls started rolling in. Calls asking to be a part of their club, BUT the thing was I had to pay for it. I didn't have the money for it at the time. I mean a few thousand dollars is a bit much. After that I started to feel that this was not something I expected. I don't recommend it, because once you are in you will be bombarded with calls from people who are just out for your money.

Just OK

With it's irreverence and apparent disregard for formality, The Rich Jerk ebook caught my attention about a month ago which ended with a purchase. The ebook was well-written and with it's great collection of tips and tricks up it's sleeve it's perfect for us who are just starting out with affiliate marketing. Highly-recommended... if only you'd stop with the book.

The problem starts with the Rich Jerk member's area. There you have lots of options, one of which is to get your own affiliate website for free. It seemed a boon then but when I was going through it, I saw that the website *hosting* had an upfront cost of around 200 dollars, quite a lot for just a domain-name+hosting combo that's supposedly free. Of course, I didn't buy into it.

Just get the ebook and you'll be fine.

It didn't stop there. After about a week someone called (it's an international call) to invite me to join their Elite Team, which I suppose are those people slated "to earn more". I did my time listening but at the end of the pitch he said that I needed to pay $3,000 to be a part of their exclusive club. This is hard money in my country so I declined the invite. They still called me a few days after that (maybe to see if I have had a change of heart) but it got irritating when they started calling me at around 2:00am (my country's time).

Again, just buy the ebook, don't get sucked in with the other stuff.

Absolute Rubbish

Richjerk was a big disappointment for me. I purchased the e-book and as it said, it promised to help you to make lots of money without even having to really do anything. At first it promised you that you would get an absolute free domain with free web-hosting. So I subscribed with them and then they tell me I have to pay and in fact it was not for free. Now I always get spam from them in my e-mail. Don't even bother trying to join up with Rich jerk, it's a big waste of time.

Don't give out your phone number

I bought the ebook and thought it was interesting and had a couple of good ideas but what turned me off completely was the phone calls I started receiving at home. I suppose I gave them my phone number somewhere during the transaction and the right for them to call me in the fine print of the TOS--maybe I should start reading the terms more closely.

In any case, I started receiving calls at night and had to tell them two or three times not to call me, that I wasn't interested in their program. I don't know if they are rich, but they certainly are jerks...

I signed up for the website

I tried to not read the emails that are blasted at you over and over but after a while I said why not and gave it a try. Yes the website was free and yes I paid for hosting. I was paying $13 a month for Yahoo at the time for another site that I put together so no big deal there.

I was so new that I was looking for training, which is the reason I signed up for the rich jerk to begin with. When you are so new that just turning on the computer is exciting, you have no idea who is legit and who is not.

The 30 video training was and is the best around. No one else shows you how to set up wordpress and I even now have scott mcnulty's "building a wordpress blog people want to read" which explains in detail the parts of your dashboard. But the information from the rich jerk videos was a bigger help in setting up wordpress.

I knew my limits, money wise, and I know how to say "NO". I did not fall for the extras that are used everyday in other programs and in the Rich Jerk system. Maybe I am a little different than other people, but I took my "review" site and have built up and changed it to become me. It does not look or feel like the original site but still I remain a connection to the old site in my about page.

While I don't promote Rich Jerk, I do stand behind the video training and recommend it for anyone who is relatively new to Internet marketing.

Great ebook

This is one great Ebook but I really can't say about the rest like the outsourced training and all that never experienced that myself but the Ebook covers lots of great topics like using eBay to make money and where to buy wholesale for your eBay business too.

But most importantly the book covers things on how use a review site to make affiliate profits and a lot of tips on how to set up a good looking sales page and even tips on making a mascot for your company (like the rich jerk cartoon guy)

He also covers some black hat tips like "cloaking" but if you're legit I wouldn't bother with that.

Who cares if he is a jerk, he has what it takes!

I have also purchased the ebook and have to say that it is straight to the point and easy to follow unlike some. It is informative and gives practical advice which is what is needed rather than a book that reads like stereo instructions. I have been following his work for a while now, but am only recently using the book for my own financial gain as I was originally quite skeptical. I will definitely report as I continue as to how I am doing.

Entertaining

Got the ebook and honestly, the information in it was really good, but I was by no means really interested in taking it any further. It's a good--and entertaining!--read with some valuable (although sometimes shady) information on how to use the internet to your moneymaking advantage. I would recommend people take a leaf out of the jerk's own book and buy it, download it, read it and ask for the refund.

The Not So Rich Jerk

I guess when you buy something from a jerk you become a jerk. I like so many others fell victim to his sales pitch and purchased his $10 ebook. Surprisingly though, I think it has some value to it. The part that disturbed me the most about this system was the hosting. To take advantage of the free website you are forced to use his hosting company, and their fees are way out of my league. Never trust a guy who gives with one hand and then takes it all back and more with the other, especially if that guy is a jerk. Needless to say I kept the book and my money in my pocket.

Nothing bad

Yeah he might be like a jerk but he is definitely helpful. I signed up for his service not knowing whether I would be scammed like a little kid, or if I was in the right place. I mean, the ebook is only $10 at the beginning, but as you progress on your journey I saw the prices starting to go up a little. For me, as a newbie, I was looking to make money for free and not to pay much to make money. If you're serious about making money, and have a little extra dough to spare, you should try getting involved with the "rich jerk".

Not for me

I signed up for his program and I did not know how to do anything online to make money. I received the online book which I guess had good information I am not sure and I also got the free web site that cost $135 a year to host. Then they ask you if you wish to promote your site they will help for $3000 or $4000 no way I was going to pay that, at that point I knew I had been had.

Honestly

I have bought this product and tested it. Though a lot of the methods he describes are a bit shady and a bit tedious (like using "review sites") and he even mentions using some black hat tips like "cloaking", all the other methods and resources he covers are absolutely great. For the novice and expert alike this is a FANTASTIC buy if you have the time and are willing to put forth the effort to make his strategies work.

Rick Jerk is More Than a Jerk.

Reading the positive review by this site made me wonder if the Rich Jerk paid them off! Hmmm.

As a businessman and marketer of my own companies (physical products) I was impressed with the marketing of the Rich Jerk character. Very funny indeed. There's no doubt this young man, the real person behind the character, is a very talented and smart guy.

However, I discovered The Rich Jerk when I first started researching online money making programs and was totally scammed by him. I suppose I blame myself for being so stupid to believe that a $200 a year hosting package was actually worth the money for one site (I already had 20 sites for $5 a month).

Well, I was so impressed by this guy's marketing skills and his character "the Rich Jerk", that I thought that his training method must be just as good if not better.

I was wrong.

I jumped into the training and followed everything they said to do, including signing up with a credit card vender (which they said was "free for Rick Jerk Customers") ... They brought me to a direct link and walked me through the process step by step... (they showed this video right after a previous video of a fat guy eating pizza and beer collecting $200 orders from "his" laptop)... so needless to say, I did what they said and got the credit card account.

Next thing I know I'm billed $40 a month for the service the Rich Jerk said was Free... Implying it was like Paypal, where you can take credit cards and they take out their profits per order... I wasn't happy. I've taken credit cards at my businesses before... I could have gotten a better deal then $40 a month! But he said it was "free to Rich Jerk customers".

Then as I continued with the lessons I found they just dropped you off in the middle of no where... I thought wait! You just painstakingly WALKED ME THROUGH the process of getting a credit card vendor account... what products do I sell that bring in $200 an order? Where's the whole "Rich Jerk System" you built up?

It was set up.

... so "the Rich Jerk" could just get the commission off my sale with the credit card vender. No wonder he's rich... and I'm not. I got suckered and he suckered me.

Well, I didn't actually figure all this out until after I got a call from "Rich Jerk Training". I thought, ah, great, finally... I can see what products the Rich Jerk is recommending to promote like in his videos where the "fat guy" is collecting $200 orders as he drinks beer in the middle of the day!

Well, after allowing a training fee of $3,325 to my credit card I quickly discovered that I knew more about business and the internet than the people training me. After all, I started three businesses and was able to personally paint all the search engines with above the fold organic links to all the sites I made to them. Then the trainer slipped. I asked her, are you a different company than Rich Jerk?

"Rich Jerk? Never heard of them!" she said. "That's a first for me!"

Ah, I said to myself as I politely finished my session with the nice woman and called to cancel my training...

The training was outsourced... not that outsourcing is bad... but when they lead you to think that they ARE the Rich Jerk and it's a continuation of the video training that "dropped off" after they pumped you up with getting a merchant account so you can drink beer in the middle of the day as your computer collects $200 orders... it just is not right. I'll say it again. It is just not right.

So, like I said. A part of me blames myself. I was so impressed with the marketing of the Rich Jerk character that I believed the hyped sale copy.

So, hopefully this message will serve as a warning to anyone thinking about dropping $200 on a service you can pay $5 for somewhere else (with way more features and options).

And does the Rich Jerk have a guaranty like ALL the other RESPECTABLE services out there? .. Again... hyped sales copy. Yeah, the guarantee is after a year and you have to PROVE you tried to make money with his system..

The problem is only newbie suckers like myself are gonna fall for the deal and buy into it... and then when they realize it's too late they don't want the overpriced hosting - or want to recommend the Rich Jerk's products to anyone...

... so of course you're not going to "work his system" because its a con... an inflated product with hyped sales copy to make the Rich Jerk, well, Rich!

Actually, there is one good thing about the Rich Jerk. His book. It's a great intro for newbies... For 10 bucks it's a great start for a newbie...

... if that's what I only bought, then it would have been a good thing.

While his approach is less than savory

The Rich Jerk can definitely get your attention. I've bought the EBook, and have a Rich Jerk website. His staff is first rate. If you have a sense of humor and a thick skin, then give this a shot.
