Ewen Chia is a successful internet marketer and coach. With success comes plenty of hate. Well recently, he wrote a post to address these haters:
Hey guys, this is Ewen Chia, I’ve been marketing online since 1997 and have helped over 50,000+ students achieve real success on the internet throughout these years.
I’m also the author of the #1 international bestselling book, “How I Made My First Million On The Internet…And How You Can Too!”
The industry often calls me the “World’s #1 Super Affiliate”.
Meaning, I’m probably the best in the world when it comes to Affiliate Marketing (the business model of making commissions through the marketing and selling of other companies’ products and services).
It’s with Affiliate Marketing in mind that I’m writing this article, which is long overdue in my opinion.
Have you ever searched Google and other search engines and saw websites ranking for “author name + scam”, “author name + product name” or “product name reviews” etc.?
For example, “Ewen Chia scam”, “Ewen Chia Autopilot Profits”, “Autopilot Profits reviews”.
Well, most, if not all of these reviews are FAKE.
This is an affiliate marketing strategy known as “Negative Reviews” and involves the guilty websites or web pages writing fake (and overwhelmingly biased) negative reviews of a person or product, while promoting themselves or their chosen products.
Meaning, they are actually doing all this to MAKE MONEY from another product (product B) while tearing down the competitor’s product (product A).
It happens everywhere, not only in the Internet Marketing niche.
Negative reviews are well, an extremely negative marketing strategy – aimed at killing the competition through unethical and underhand methods.
It’s a strategy that works as many people are misled by and fall for these fake“reviews”. So they keep appearing and continuing.
Most of the negative review website owners employ black hat tactics to hurt others while benefiting themselves.
They tend to target popular brands and products – simply because there’s traffic from people searching for them.
Unfortunately, I’m ashamed to admit I’m a major VICTIM of these fake negative reviews.
My name “Ewen Chia”, my product names and anything associated with these keyword terms are hot favorites for these fake negative review perpetrators.
This is because they can profit massively from the huge traffic from people searching for my name and my products, which has a combined traffic volume of as high as 1,984,080 searches a month!
So stay away from these negative reviews because they are mostly biased, unethical and untrue. These perpetrators may even do the same to you one day.
He goes on to describe how you can detect whether a “review” is indeed honest or biased.
Be careful the next time you read a review, especially if it is about Ewen Chia.
