Traffic to MOBE FTC Shutdown Federal Trade Commission Post

Last Update: June 16, 2018

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has recently shutdown MOBE, also known as My Online Business education and formerly known as My Online Business Empire.

No, I am not nor have I ever been a member of MOBE. That being said, the post that I shared onto my website doesn't say that MOBE is a scam and it's not a negative post. It is simply a post about the FTC shutting down the platform MOBE so that Friends who would like to learn how to earn a legiitimate income online can do so.

The screenshots above show my stats for the week (Sumo)and/or day (The post)

I use the SUMO Free Plugin and have it connected to Google Analytics as well.

Do You have any Friends who were and/or are a part of MOBE?

I don't know if MOBE will survive this and I have no opinion wether or not MOBE is indeed a scam or a legitimate online business. I don't judge other "Opportunties" and don't write negatively about anything on my website. This post is about as negative as I have ever gotten on any post on my website as it's not my place to decide for anyone else.

The stats above I am pretty happy with, the average session duration per visit is kind of low but I have some posts and/or pages that don't even have words but simply a clickable image to an Opportunity so those visits only last about 2 seconds :)

Thank you Friends for taking the time to read this post, comments and questions welcomed.

Thanks for sharing, Tony.

MOBE conducted several workshops here in Auckland, New Zealand for 3 days in January 2018 (22nd, 23rd and 24th of January 2018) and all of those workshops were packed as I heard. The one I attended on the 22nd of January at 6pm was about 200-300 attendees. I wrote a post about that one: .
They are also advertising on Facebook some scheduled workshops here in Auckland, New Zealand for the 26th, 27th and the 28th of June 2018, which is this month.

Lucky I've got Wealthy Affiliate and what I now know from it to be able to determine the viability and legitimacy of every such program being introduced online.

And for this one, It was a Big NO from me!!

Mobe had what would normally be very legal products but greed and an ill-planned pay plan were always going to head them to this point. They wanted more money than their products were worth which required them to sell people on the pay plan for each tiered training system instead of the products themselves. This alone made the program a Ponzi Scam. Add in the fact you had to be a customer to earn money and had to purchase each tier to be able to sell each tier made it shady and a bit more sinister throughout.

You, of course, were told to get your business started you only had to pay a small amount and what you got for that small amount was an overview of the compensation plan, promises of people closing sales for you, and a pay more button to get the first level of overpriced training.

Some questioned the training itself because they could learn everything in it free on the Internet but you can even learn to be a surgeon or CEO for free on the Internet you just can't get a degree or license free. No hands-on training for surgery etc.. but you can learn through photo and video most of the skills needed to be a doctor in some small 3rd world country where licensing requirements are not as strict. Mobe like veery training based program including the University and College education systems compiled this information and charged a fee but it's how they set their fees and how they chose to sell their products that now has ownership fighting for their freedom.

Meanwhile, a lot of good people saw the upside and fell for the constant doublespeak and may go down with the sinking ship. Great marketers like Ewin Chia and John Chow could be held as accomplices should the Federal Government choose because they sold millions of dollars of these packages and banked a large share of the commissions based on their names. John helped develop MTTB a spinoff training and entry point making his spot even more precarious.

Good people who know better are caught up in this because the payday was too big to ignore. I pray for all the victims and hope this sends a message that selling your soul for a piece of a big payday is simply not worth it.

I've never reviews MOBE. Could anything like that ever happen to WA?

Nope WA offers a straight affiliate program with no progression and the product far exceeds the cost of ownership. It teaches you how to use free affiliate programs to build out any niche and operates fully within the law.
