MOBE &. A BIG Silver Cloud

Last Update: June 14, 2018

Yesterday, I read a post on here about MOBE

It Stunned me, but I have to say, I wasn't unduly surprised by what I read

It stated that MOBE has been shut down by the FTC. This is a fact

I was stunned because, prior to coming to WA, I had been a huge advocate of MOBE and was positioned at the GOLD membership, having been invited to join it by a business associate of mine, who I respected and as much as my previous LEO experience had taught me, trusted his judgement

Now it was through the MOBE 21 step business education, that I came to be at

Wealthy Affiliate

Since being here, the education, and affiliate bootcamp courses coupled with the live training and community support have shown and taught me, that the WA way is... The right way

Now that is not said lightly or because of what has happened to MOBE

It is said with the realism and acknowledgement that having tried other so called good established ventures in the past, which have worked, but had their flwas as well, that there is simply nothing out there to touch

Wealthy Affiliate

I earned through MOBE, I got back my investment, through showing others what I genuinely believed to be a good way of educating small business owners

However, Promotion of MOBE, as stated in the FTC papers, was hard, in some cases near impossible, because the links were blocked in most promotional places

I contacted my introducer to MOBE yesterday, to inform him of the news, because I knew he was working on another project and expected him to be as stunned as I was

He wasn't!!!... and knew about the news days before, but 'neglected to tell me

In fact he said, I'll TRY to call in the next couple of days, to discuss it with you, or if not I'll TRY to call later today

I have advised him not too, and explained my reasons why not

MOBE did advocate the use of Wordpress, which is another reason I ended up here at WA

After yestardays news, I spenf a good time addressing my profile here, and on another blog which was set up specifically for that. Luckily that one is not indexed for the search engines yet, nor is it hosted here

BUT

Every cloud has a silver lining, being here is home for me, the training, and webinars along with the community are excellent, first class and second to none

Yesterdays news also re~inforced to me a decision I had made a couple of weeks ago, which was

Scaling back on MOBE for the reasons listed above and one other venture I have, simply because compared to WA... They are not in the same class

For any newbies reading this, do not fall for shiny object syndrome... it does not exist

Truth, reality and working the smart way does exist here in WA, that much I can say is truthful and with enough support to ensure you make it

Onwards and Upwords

Applied Education really is the Difference

Someone tried to get me into MOBE / MTTB a couple of years back. I'd been in Empower Network for some time and look what happened to that, too. I've tried others such as MLSP, Carbon Copy Pro, DotCom SecretsX, to name but a few and none of them are a patch on Wealthy Affiliate.
Here, what you see is what you get at a consistent and extremely affordable price.
Within all of the other programmes you get constantly bombarded with upsells that you apparently can't do without, always at that very familiar $997 'today only' price tag.
Wealtthy Affiliate has everything we need. There is no need to look anywhere else. I only wish I'd found it before wasting literally $1000's on other 'flashing bells and whistles' programmes.
Thanks for sharing :-)
Cheers

Oh Rich, nate... like you I was part of Empowerm but didn't like their commission structure, MLSP I have done with some success, Carbon copy Pro, was a pile of rubbish when I got it and got a refund on it

WA is IT...and your comments are spot on

Empower changed their commission structure every other month, it seemed like - giving a bit less every time. Dave W got a bit greedy, I think.
We're definitely in the right place at the right time here :-)

Hi Dave,
Also in shock, whilst I personally did not have a good time with MOBE, though it cost me a few £K, I was still getting mails from them until a few days ago.
Agree we are better off here, whilst I think, my Google + account I take it that I can use any website on it, even if not yet on WA!
Regards
Stuart

Your welcome and while it may not make much sense, it shows Google that you are an author producing quality content, or at least thats how they see it.

It also helps your rankings as well

Its one of the reasons I use Google+ and YouTube

Just an awesome fountain of knowledge. Will be doing you tube as I progress, do you use your own cameras, or a program on the pc!

Not sure about fountain of knowledge, as such: ) but thanks for the kind words

As for camera, I got a Advent PC camera which sits n top of my office Desk Top and use Screencast omatc, because of all the ones I have used, such as JING, its theeasiest to use, with less hassle

I use it to produce my video training here at WA as well

I was not aware of MOBE but I am curious.What was the issue with promotions ,how is the same issue different at WA?

Both programs have their educational program. The major differences in them is that MOBE had products that their member can promote and be profitable from the sales.

WA is totally a membership site providing the education for the members. There is no side products we can promote (except Jaaxy which a tool related to the program).

From what I have read, FTC shuts it down on two counts:
1) Misleading marketing
2) Refund processing - some members actually lodged reports on this.

It is s temporary stop to the program. There is a hearing on 26Jun to determine if the ruling is going to be permanent or whether the sanction will be uplifted.

Courtney, they gave promotional links, which where you tried to promote them, EG on facebook, some traffic exchnages and such like, were blocked

They were leaningtwoards ClickFunnels for LCPs, but that never really took off

Spot on Joe, either way, confidence llost with MOBE from my point of view

I am lucky in respect of the fact, that a venture I affiliated with 9 years ago and which I am still part of today, with no problems at all, actually has How To products, which put the meat on the meat of what we get here

So, every cloud does have a silver lining, it also makes promotion of WA, from my point of view at least, even EASIER!!

&Thats; is BIIIIGGGGGGG Silver Cloud : )

The heading caught my attention Dave as I was with MOBE for a few months some years ago. MOBE had training platform, some checklist that you need to complete. I pity the owner if really the program had been shut down. I know there were many top online marketers affiliated with the program. Not really sure what had happened.

Thanks for sharing it here. WA is here to stay,

There were a a lot of TOP online marketers in it, some I know personally and one particular one, just by the fact they were, was encourgament to me, but there were far too many issues with it, from the start in terms of promotion restrictions, for me to be totally happy with it
