Welcome to my Copy Paste Income review. Is it a scam? I think it is, but it’s up to you to decide. Here I am going to take a look through its overblown sales page and pull it to pieces. I am then going to take a look at what other websites say about it so that we can get a clear picture of what it is all about and whether it is worth bothering with.
I’m not claiming to have tried it myself because I don’t buy things if I get a strong indication that they might be a scam. I’m not an idiot whose goal is to lose money. But what I can do is to spot the telltale signs that might indicate that it is a scam, to help you make an intelligent decision about whether it is worth bothering with.
First up…the overly dramatic headline…
When you first visit the Copy Paste Income website, you will see the following dramatic headline:
I’ll be honest, I’m at least a little bit skeptical. The one thing it’s always worth keeping in mind whenever you come across an offer like this is: if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is. That doesn’t necessarily mean that EVERYTHING that sounds too good to be true is a lie or a scam. It just means it’s wise to proceed with caution rather than jumping in feet first with your eyes closed.
This is followed by a screenshot of some Clickbank earnings:
In case you don’t already know, Clickbank is an online marketplace for digital products. It serves as an affiliate network for many much products. A lot of them are rather dubious. Copy Paste Income proudly states that it is sold via Clickbank like that’s going to reassure people. Instead, this immediately makes me cautious.
So, Copy Paste Income involves selling other Clickbank products, and Ewen says that all you need to do is to copy and paste in a small amount of text at the beginning of the day. This immediately makes me think that it involves paying for Pay Per Click adverts on a search engine, or Facebook ads. Paid ads are the only way I can think of that somebody could realistically earn as much as 6 thousand dollars in one weekend just from copying and pasting some text. Unless you have a huge mailing list which you can sell to. Which you don’t, otherwise why would you be desperate looking for ways to make money online?
But let’s take a look at the rest of the sales page to see what we can find out…
He draws your attention to a particular day in 2014 when he earned over $1,000 in commissions on Clickbank. He says that he was at an event all day that day, and all he did to earn that money was to “Copy Paste And Hit Go” at 8am before he left the hotel. He says all he does is copy, paste, and earn money, and it’s a simple formula that works “ALL THE TIME”. All the time? I find that hard to believe.
Anyway, the rest of this sales page really just continues in the same manner, repeating the same message in as many different ways as it can. The message is simple: earn money just by copying and pasting, that’s all you need to do, and anyone can do it.
By the way, have you seen Zero Hour Work Days?
However, one thing caught my attention. It was this list:
So you don’t need anything to make this work? Well, what about money? The one thing I don’t see mentioned on that list is money. This reinforces my suspicion that it must be paid ads. After doing more research, I discovered it’s actually not paid ads, but we’ll come to what it actually is a bit later…
But how much does the Copy Paste Income system cost to buy?
$37 apparently…or so the sales page would have you believe.
BUT…what about upsells?
What are upsells?
Upsells are when you pay for a product that you have been led to believe fulfills your requirements, only to suddenly be given one or more offers for additional products that you really need to make it work properly.
I typed “copypasteincome.com affiliates” into Google to see if there was a page on the site aimed at affiliates intending to promote Copy Paste Income. I did find such a page, but I couldn’t find anything which on it which actually explicitly stated that there are upsells. But I did see a big, bold, red headline saying this:
A simple calculation means that you could end up spending $795 to get everything here! That’s more than 21 times the original price of $37 mentioned on the sales page! F*** you, Ewen Chia for being a deceiving, misleading c**t!
In my opinion, this is a totally unacceptable deception. This is also the real reason why Ewen Chia is so rich.
Digging a little deeper…
I had a look at what some other websites were saying about Copy Paste Income…
It turns out that Copy Paste Income is anything but as simple as copying and pasting to earn income. Well, you will be shown how to copy and paste, but it won’t earn you money as quickly and easily as he makes it seem in the sales page.
When you join Copy Paste Income, you are given access to 3 hours of training spread across 6 tutorial videos, covering the following topics:
- Choosing a profitable niche
- Affiliate products
- Keyword research and keyword optimization
- Creating your mini ebook
- Promoting your mini ebook
- Advanced strategies
So you have to spend time choosing a niche, researching affiliate products, doing keyword research, and making and promoting an ebook. You put your affiliate links in this ebook, and you and give your ebook away for free or sell it for a one-time fee.
This doesn’t sound like it’s as easy as copying, pasting, and earning income, does it? It sounds a lot more involved and like it won’t earn you money instantly.
Also, when you log into the members area, this is where the upselling happens. The first few resources in the members area are free, but then the rest are actually links to upsells for additional products that cost you the additional money. This is a really sneaky way of trying to squeeze loads of extra money out of you.
So, what rating do other websites give it?
- affiliate-sale.com gives it 0/100, saying it “literally has no substance, at all”
- stoppingscams.com says that you will be disappointed if you buy any of Ewen Chia’s products.
- incomejane.com gives it 5/100, calling it one of the lowest quality products they have reviewed.
- workonlinefromhome.net says the main product is somewhat useful but the upsells are a big problem.
- wealth4affiliates.com gives it a rating of “not so good”, saying it’s not a scam but you still shouldn’t buy it.
- eddreviews.com says it is a ” super-easy video training course that is perfect for everyone”.
- workwiseways.com gives it 29 out of 100, and says it is “highly unlikely that you will make $6,361.95 in a weekend or any significant money from this product!”
- everyonecanmakemoneyonline.com gives it 1/5, saying it has some decent information but won’t earn you $6,000 per week.
- beginatzero.com gives it 1/10, saying that it doesn’t live up the claims made in the sales page.
- onemorecupof-coffee.com gives it 35/100, saying it is “overpriced and underdelivers”.
- fulltimejobfromhome.com gives it 5/100 and says it is a “complete scam and was created just to get you to buy his other products”.
- myinternetquest.com gives it 3 out of 100 and calls it a total scam.
So there you go. I think it’s quite safe to say that Copy Paste Income is not worth buying. You are very unlikely to earn the $6,000 that is claimed on the sales page, and you are likely to end up feeling disappointed. It looks like Copy Paste Income is another hyper-up “make money online” product that won’t live up to its overblown claims.
Is Copy Paste Income a scam?
Yes, if you consider it scammy to have upsells that end up making this product cost over 21 times as much as is advertised on the sales; and yes, if you consider it scammy to claim that you can earn over $6,000 in one weekend just by quickly copying and pasting something, when actually, there’s a lot more you will need to do and you are unlikely to earn anything close to that amount.
Stop falling for scams, build a solid online business instead…
Once you get out of the mindset of looking for these kinds of magic bullet get-rich-quick schemes, you can be more realistic and actually build yourself a genuine long-term business.
Did you know that it’s possible to turn almost any passion or interest into an online business?
It goes something like this:
- Choose a topic that you are interested in that also has related products you can promote.
- Set up a website.
- Write good quality content about your topic.
- Earn money when people click from your website and buy something on another website (e.g. Amazon or eBay).
