FIMP – Review Continued – Scam?
Do not know if you got any value out of the first part of my review on FIMP but this is the balance of what I was able to find out prior to having to purchase a domain and hosting to continue.
You can come to your own conclusions about Free Internet Marketing Program FIMP for short and if the program is worth the time and if it is really FREE like they claim.
Continuing on FIMP
The first post of my review only went as far as Lesson 1 with Ian and ended up being a complete post all by itself. This is going to start with Lesson 2.1 and see where we end up. I am trying to condense the material as best I can without confusing anyone.
Lesson 2.1 starts out with Mind Set for doing Internet Marketing and setting goals mostly that everyone sets unrealistic goals based on how much money they are going to make, this is due to the brainwashing by the marketers of all the scammers selling outdated and bull crap systems.
Lesson 2.2 Ian states that you have to be committed to your goals to succeed and the least amount of time required is 10 hours a week if you are not willing to commit the 10 hours then you should move on and find work elsewhere. Here he looks at milestones you might or might not reach in time from 3 months up to a year depending on your competition niche.
Lesson 2.3 all about setting goals with the right Mind Set never using money making goals but instead setting milestone goals on things you can control such as content production, keyword research, hours you work, how many posts per week, and efficiency with what work you do. Know that high-quality content with good keywords will get you success.
Lesson 3.1 Perfect Niche Selection – never go into a niche for the money, you will thrive on the niche with the most value if you focus on value and helping people while learning the ropes everything else will follow. Viable niches come from the internal place inside you, picking the wrong niche you are going nowhere, just start over when you realize this has happened.
Lesson 3.2 “Niches Broad vs. Narrow” – never target a whole industry always narrow this down to a narrower topic for SEO and Google. Always do a Pro’s and Con’s of products and Keywords how do they fit into your niche. Think you have nothing to write about start with all the jobs you ever had – you are an authority in these and can write about them.
Lesson 3.3 “Are You Dealing with a Buy Audience?” – the Freeloaders niches – song lyrics, recipes, quotes, etc. People visiting these websites are only looking for free information they will not buy anything.
Reviews especially on products solving personal problems (particularly a private problem) good because they have someone with emotionally charged pain this is the perfect audience.
Products you want to always be at the high end because commission on small stuff requires too many visitors to your website to purchase to make really good money. So a website doing a kitchen or bathroom remodel for DIY is great not just for tools required but supplies to do the job as well.
Complex Products and High-End Electronics you really should purchase these yourself and do reviews on them they are more authentic when you can video the use of them when describing features (one thing to know costs of products used for business in the USA are tax write-offs).
Lesson 3.4 “Scared of Competition?” – you should never be afraid of the competition if there is a high competition that means there is money to be made you need to produce high-quality content and it is only a matter of time before you topple the ones from the top and take their place. The only exception here is paid advertisers such as Amazon, Mayo Clinic, Realtor.com, etc.
Evergreen niches are – Health/Wellness/Beauty – Make Money/Investing/Business Opportunity – Relationships/Dating. These are always going to be high competition and there is always room for more just produce high-quality content.
Lesson 3.5 “Internet Market Economics” – Cheaper products you promote on your website the harder it will be to make any money, but the higher price products you sell means you will be selling less but making more. What you want is fewer conversions but high end/high commission products to make the best money.
Lesson 3.6 “Good Niche/Bad Niche” – discusses good niches vs bad niches.
Lesson 3.7 “Press Forward – But Start Over If Stuck” – discusses the summary of lesson 3 and start over in the event you get stuck.
Less 4.1 “Website Building” Alright I think we are finally getting someplace and going to start to really work on something with this lesson – WRONG – Ian wants to now know if you can “Make money online without a website?” No, not hardly not saying it is impossible by highly unlikely.
Going on Ian states that you might feel like this is wasting time but it is not you need to learn all this because it is what is standing between you and a better future and your success online. You need to develop an independent mentality with millions of websites online research first ask questions later. No one is going to hold your hand and do it for you.
Lesson 4.2 “Anatomy Of A Perfect Domain” – Now this is more time-consuming than most people think it can take hours to figure out the perfect domain name and it can not be changed once selected and purchased. Don’t fall into the “analysis paralysis” but get something good and fitting.
Always get a dot com if you are going for a money making website the dot net and dot org are alright but not the same as the universal dot com. Needs to be memorable, brandable, easy to spell, and the shorter the better. If you can include the keyword in the domain name definitely do it.
Lesson 4.3 “Best Place to Buy A Domain Name” Here Ian refers everyone to NameCheap.com where you can get a coupon and purchase a domain name at a discount for the first year which includes domain privacy included for free.
Other places like GoDaddy and other hosting companies that sell cheap domains do not include the privacy and you have to pay for it separately making them higher priced. He also tells everyone not to buy hosting at the same place they purchase their domain name due to the upsells when adding hosting.
Lesson 4.4 “Securing Hosting for Your Website” Ian wants everyone to get their hosting from “Blue Host” and to use his affiliate link when purchasing their hosting – this keeps FIMP funded (so he says).
He states that this is the best price for hosting when starting out and to get the Unlimited Domain Hosting Package, even if this is shared hosting it is still a very good hosting and will work just fine for you.
Lesson 4.5 “Connecting Your Domain to Hosting” – NOW I RAN INTO A PROBLEM – AND COULD NOT ACCESS THIS VIDEO AND WAS REFERRED TO 2 OTHER VIDEOS FOR GETTING APPROVED FOR FIMP TO PROMOTE THEM WITH AFFILIATE LINKS TO MY WEBSITE AND ON FACEBOOK.
Do not know about you but all the information that I received here is good information but I sure did condense this down to two short posts instead of rambling on for 6 and a half hours wasting your time.
Free Internet Marketing Program is most definitely not FREE – you have to purchase a domain name which can run you around $12.00 with tax and fees even with GoDaddy $.99 domain name you still need the privacy which is another $8.00.
Hosting fees run really cheap for the first year this is very true some companies will offer you it for $2.95 month but this is for one website only and does not include anything like Site Speed, SSL Certificate, or Site Protection which is something Ian did not tell anyone on the video.
Without SSL Certificates this means your website will show up as being unsecured when people try to visit it and that means you are going to get no traffic at all to your site they get a warning turn back site is unsecured.
Google and the other search engines will not rank a website that is slow loading either so on a shared server like “Blue Host” without purchasing the Site Speed and Site Protection do you really think your website is going to rank?
If you would like seriously FREE training along with FREE websites and FREE hosting that has everything needed then you need to look into Wealthy Affiliate they have it all and it is all FREE – 20 FREE lessons, 2 FREE websites, with FREE hosting that includes Site Speed, SSL Certificates, and Site Protection.
FIMP is not a scam operation they do give you some valuable information but take their good old time getting around to spitting it out.
Wealthy Affiliate can give you more information and in the amount of time that it took me to listen to Ian at FIMP well I could have done a couple of lessons and built a couple of websites with at least two posts at a 1000 words each.
Not only that because I could never access the rest of the lessons like I wanted to do I cannot report on what else is inside this platform not that I feel it does not have some value, but I know now for a fact it is not FREE like they claim.
With Wealthy Affiliate, they do have a FREE starter membership and when you decide you want to go to the Premium Membership there are no hidden costs involved!
Membership fees are in black and white $49.00 per month and if you want you can do a yearly membership for $359.00 the only other expense is your domain name which you can purchase right at Wealthy Affiliate and not have to transfer hosting companies the most expensive domain name I have ever seen is $15.99 that is for a whole year.
Want a really special deal to join now for FREE as a starter and if you decide to go Premium within you first seven days you can get your first full month Premium Membership for only $19.00 what a deal right?
