As I mentioned earlier I could never really figure out how to get my blog the way I wanted until I saw a post on John Chow’s site where he suggested starting my blog by using the ShoeMoney Network.
Up until that day I didn’t know who Jeremy Schoemaker was, but based off John Chow’s recommendation and after googling his name and finding out he’s been an internet millionaire for a couple years now I decided to give the program a try.
So I signed up, and forgot about it, but after a couple of day I received one of Schoemaker’s e-mails saying how he was frustrated that he had sold many “how to make money online” products and even though the content was good very few people every logged in and did anything.
Claiming not only would his program be free but he’d pay me to accomplish tasks. I begrudgingly signed up. Mostly out of curiosity, I wanted to see if John Chow really does deliver on his recommendations. A naturally born skeptic I expected there to be an angle more than anything else.
…Who doesn’t like figuring out the magician’s trick?
The program is set up with little quests, as each task is completed you receive a different colored belt representing your accomplished path on the way to becoming a true blogging ninja. The first task was drop dead simple and I instantly received a dollar to my paypal account even though I never paid him anything.
That was cool so I continued through the course setting up my site. Installing a theme, plugins, yada yada yada. By the 2nd level I made $3. Thinking “getting paid to do something I was going to do anyways is my kind of work!” I fully embraced my newly discovered calling in life. …To become a ShoeMaker Ninja Grandmaster it got a little addicting being rewarded along the way like that.
Jeremy not only walked me through setting up everything step by step (and paying along the way WITH REAL MONEY!!! Buah ha ha ha ha hahaha! you I admit, it is a nerdy, nerdy, nerd-nerd NERD thing to do, but as nerdy as it is… It’s fun. It is a lot of fun having the program award me belts like a karate system.
By the time I received my black belt I was sent $15.
The main thing though is that even though actually getting paid with real money was fun and kept me interested, at the end I had a great blog with all the key plugins. A facebook page and a email newsletter all set up the way I wanted without having to scour the internet and piece the information together.
I’m delighted with what he showed me how to create and really recommend the program. Thanks, John Chow.
I’ve spent waaaaaay too many hours playing games online for fun, this was like that only at the end you I have something of real value.
Again I never paid him $1, €1, or any other sort of monetary value. The only thing you have to pay is attention and it is definetly worth it. I kept waiting to see the trick but there really isn’t one.
Short of Doubting Thomas no one is more skeptical than me. Give it a try, when you make your first dollar in five minutes for doing what you were going to do anyway you’ll be hooked like me. Click here to register.
