Five Minute Profit Sites is a system that promises to show you how you can generate an income online in under 5 minutes and 17 clicks. The moment I saw it, I was instantly very skeptical since I had come across lots of eerily similar products that didn’t work out as well as they were advertised. Nevertheless, I decided to investigate further in order to find out what it was all about. Here is my Five Minute Profit Sites fresh updated review to help you figure out what you can expect from it.
Product Being Reviewed: Five Minute Profit Sites
WHAT IS IT?
Five Minute Profit Sites is a Clickbank product that is presented by Sam Smith, who as it turns out is using a pen name. The name of the owner of the product is not revealed anywhere on the sales page and video. So, basically, we do not know who this product belongs to.
When you land on the sales page, the first thing you will see is a statement describing the product as new controversial software that exploits a $12.3 million loophole and makes its users up to $519 per day.
When you try to exit the sales page, a popup appears on your screen warning you not to leave the page so as not to forfeit your free license to use the Five Minute Profit Sites software.
Below the video, you are required to click on the “yes, I want a free software license” button. You will need to provide your email in order to use the Five Minute Profit Sites (FMPS) software. A word to the wise here: never provide your email address to these sites. They will add you to their mailing lists, and they will sell your information to third parties. In the end, you will be getting so many spam emails and there will be no way to stop it.
Before you get started, you will have to pay $37 that is supposedly meant to pay for a server to host the website that will be created by the FMPS software. The only payment method available is via PayPal.
The video starts with the speaker congratulating you for being able to access the video. The speaker introduces herself as Sam Smith, the spokesperson of Five Minute Profit Sites. According to her, to get started with the product, you don’t need any skills or experience. Apparently, you can make consistent earnings from a “secret” industry that is estimated to be worth $12.3 million a year. It doesn’t have anything to do with bitcoin, gambling, or any kind of cryptocurrency.
To take advantage of this industry, you need to get a free license to use the secret software. The software works by building a done-for-you website for its users in under 5 minutes and 17 clicks, hence the name of the product. Five Minute Profit Sites is described as a point and click software app designed to make fast money from affiliate marketing. It is a supposedly new and unseen method of earning an income online.
By joining Five Minute Profit Sites, you become a partner, and for every affiliate sale you make, they make a small commission. However, this money does not come out of your pocket, and they only make money when you manage to make sales. The software is designed for beginners and people who have tried to make money online without success. You are discouraged from using the product if:
• You are the kind of person who will claim a free license and never actually use the software then the product is not for you.
• You already make $100,000 or more a year from the internet, then the product does not suit you as well.
The video then moves on to a live demo of how Five Minute Profit Sites works.
Once you log in the first step is to set up your own website. To do this, click on “build your site”. You will be redirected to another page where you will find three more steps:
• Connect with Clickbank
Click on “Clickbank setup” to sign up for Clickbank by providing personal details and your banking information.
• Get your domain
Click on “domain setup” to select a name for your website.
• Add an email service
Click on “email service setup” to sign up for a free account on Aweber.
As an affiliate, your job entails finding people who want to buy a product and sending them to a website that sells the aforementioned product. When these people make a purchase, you get a commission. You don’t have to develop or supply the product. While this may sound simple, if you are a beginner, you face three challenges:
• How to build a website which can actually make you money
The Five Minute Profits Sites software solves this by building you the website you need to get started.
• How to find websites which sell great products that you can sell as an affiliate and make the highest commission
The software uses an algorithm that helps you find the website with the most ideal products
• How to find people to buy the products from the websites
The software provides you with a step-by-step method that you can use to direct people to the websites with the products you want to sell.
The website that you get is fully hosted by Five Minute Profit Sites on their servers and you also get your own custom logo. It also comes with a sales video that is presented by a professional actor that is designed to convert visitors on your website to customers who are willing to pay for whatever you pitch. It does this by promising them a free money-making system that is valued at $197. To download this system, interested customers can click on the “download your private system” button and provide their email addresses so as to be redirected to another page where they can download the free system. At the same time, your website will send them to a Clickbank product through your affiliate link. If they purchase the product, you get paid up to 75% commission for every sale.
The speaker urges you to get the software as soon as possible since it might be taken down at any moment. To get started, you are urged to click the button below the sales video. Apparently, if you get the website as soon as possible, you get a massive discount. While the software is free, you will be charged for the server costs. There is a 60-day money back guarantee that allows you to get a refund if you are unsatisfied with the software.
And that marks the end of the video.
HOW DOES IT REALLY WORK?
Once you purchase the product for $37, you gain access to the members’ area. On the “home” button, there are four options you can select:
• Create a site
• Welcome video
• Members tour
• Support FAQs
To get started right away, click on the “create site” button where you will find 3 steps:
– Connect with Clickbank
The first step is to set up your own Clickbank account.
– Get your domain
You are provided with several domain names that you can choose from.
– Add an email service
Set up your Aweber account.
The website you get has a sales video presented a paid actor that is meant to convince visitors to your site to opt-in. Essentially, you send traffic to this page, and once someone expresses interest by clicking on the “download your private system” button, they are redirected to a page where they can buy a product. This is how you earn a commission.
For the traffic methods, there are short videos covering the following areas:
• Introduction to solo ads
• Solo ad services
• Solo ad strategies
• Getting ready for traffic
• Other solo ad sources
• Ad swaps and what’s next
A product such as this would never be complete without its upsells. For the Five Minute Profit Sites, in addition to the main product, there are three upsells:
– FMPS Faster Profits
This upsell will cost you $197. This upsell promises to help you build a bigger and faster profits website. It includes a fully equipped video presentation, unique articles, product reviews, your affiliate links, and one-on-one support.
– FMPS Double Your Profit Sites
This upsell consists of a specialist FMPS niche website that includes a sales video presentation, unique articles, fresh site design, product reviews, and support. It costs $187.
– Traffic Tsunami
This upsell is described as a step-by-step blueprint that you can copy to get targeted traffic to your website. To purchase this, you will have to part with $97.
WILL IT MAKE YOU ANY MONEY?
Since affiliate marketing is a legitimate business model, there is some money to be made using the Five Minute Profit Sites system. However, you won’t make anywhere near $519 a day as claimed on the sales page. In fact, you will only end up spending money using the traffic methods that they suggest, something that they don’t tell you in the sales page/video. The income disclaimer even goes as far as to state that there is no guarantee you will make money or improve your current profits by following the content that is provided by the product.
The sales video and page make it seem easy to make money using the FMPS system, but in reality, it will take you a lot of financial investment, hard work, and time before you start making any significant amount of profit with this system. Even then, it may not be as much as advertised.
Five Minute Profit Sites talks about a genuine business model that could potentially help you earn an income online. The product costs $37, which is not too pricey, and if you are not satisfied with the product, there is the money back guarantee that allows you to demand a full refund within 60 days of purchasing it.
Despite these positive aspects, there are some glaring worrying features of the product and how it was presented that can’t be ignored. The income claims in the sales page and video are simply too good to be true. While you can set up your site within a short period of time, you won’t start earning commissions right away, and you definitely won’t be making $500 on a daily basis.
The traffic methods that you are encouraged to use is Solo Ads. This is basically a paid method of driving traffic to your page. They fail to mention that you need a budget in order to start making money using Solo Ads. Consequently, if you are a beginner and you are not prepared to pay for this traffic method, then you won’t be able to make the most of it. Furthermore, there is no mention of SEO, which means your website won’t rank on sites such as Google and Bing.
I also didn’t like the fact that you have no say when it comes to the affiliate products that you are required to promote. Affiliate marketing, when it is done the right way, is supposed to give you the freedom to choose the products you want to promote. Plus, a lot of Clickbank products are not high-quality. While you can sell these low-quality products to make some quick cash, they are not the best way to build your affiliate marketing business since you will end up losing your customers in the long run.
Although there is a spokesperson in the video, the owner of the product is not introduced, which I found to be very off-putting. There is one thing I have learned about these product owners from doing these reviews for so long: If they are not confident enough to stand by their product, I wouldn’t be too quick to purchase it either.
Another negative aspect of the product is the claim that it is free, yet when you try to access it, you are required to pay $37 for your site to be “hosted” on their servers. Since your site is hosted on their servers, if anything were to happen to Five Minute Profit Sites, which is not unlikely, you will inevitably lose your site as well. This is very unsettling, especially if you somehow manage to build a significant client base.
There are also three upsells to the initial product which you don’t necessarily need but might feel pressured to buy since they promise more information on how you can earn even more money. Plus, the cost of services like AWeber is not revealed, yet it is a service that you will need to use when it comes to email marketing.
While Five Minute Profit Sites provides some useful tips on how you can earn an income online through affiliate marketing, I would not recommend it. If you want to become an affiliate marketer, consider thoroughly researching how to go about it and gaining experience without having to spend too much money on a product that is not guaranteed to make you succeed.
I have been in affiliate marketing for over a decade. I know it to be an amazing way to make money online and to gain your financial freedom. However, I also know that it can be time-consuming and confusing to get started. Products like five minute profit sites only add to the confusion and frustration by making crazy income claims.
If you want to learn affiliate marketing, there are excellent resources you can use. Many of them are free. Here is the one I used to get started!
