The Profit Genesis 2.0 Review

2 May

Would the real founder of Profit Genesis please stand up and introduce himself?

Product: Profit Genesis 2.0; Profit Genesis Reloaded

Website: profitgenesisreloaded.com

Owner: David Miller or Russell Hill

Rating: 1 out of 5 (because I am generous)

I saw a notice online from a company that said they could show you how you could make $5,000 week after week consistently with their simple system. My investigation of this company revealed something very interesting. Read my Profit Genesis 2.0 review to learn more.

This type of offer that seems too good to be true, often is just that. I decided to investigate.

First, I checked out reviews. The very first one I read announced, loud and clear, that this company was a scam, and not to get involved. So, I decided to go to the source. I entered “profitgenesis.com” into my address bar.

I arrived at the Profit Genesis site, owned by a man named Anthony Campos, Ph.D. He classified himself as an educator who marketed knowledge.

I read through a series of posts about the steps needed to build a website. His information was good. I took notes, as he had many good points.man teaching class

This website is very plain — no images; long paragraphs. I think he wrote it more as an educational article rather than writing on an online website. He does make the point, though, that he considers himself an educator.

Though his paragraphs took a bit of wading, the salient points are good ones. I saw nothing about a system that would make you $5,000 a week. I saw no hype at all. He did have an ebook for sale called Money Machine — a Full Course in Creating Your Own Informational Product. The charge was $17.00.

Now I was confused. I went back to look at the review again.

The reviewer’s title was, “Is Profit Genesis a Scam or Legit?” Then in the beginning of the article, he lists the product as Profit Genesis 2.0. However, in each subtitle of the post he refers to the company as “Profit Genesis.”

What is going on here?

All the rest of the reviews on Google were designated as Profit Genesis 2.0. They mentioned an owner named David Miller. I then realized I was looking at two different websites here. One, owned by Anthony Campos, is an educational site designed to train you on how to set up an online business.

The other, said to be owned by David Miller, promised riches in minutes. Which would you believe to be honest, and which a scam?

Still, why the name confusion? Granted, Profit Genesis and Profit Genesis 2.0 (or Profit Genesis Reloaded) are close to the same, but they are different names.

Then I found the Profit Genesis 2.0 (or Reloaded) site and watched their introductory video. First of all, several times during the video, he calls the business “Profit Genesis.” No Reloaded; no 2.0. No wonder the reviewer got confused and referred to the company simply as Profit Genesis.

I think the owner of this Profit Genesis 2.0 liked the name, so he just took it, adding something to the end so he could find a domain. Perhaps he used the name without doing research so he didn’t realize it was already taken. Then he used it freely in his video as “Profit Genesis” because that was what he really wanted to call the site.  Who knows for sure?

So how honest is Profit Genesis 2.0? Is the owner David Miller? Or is it Russell Hill? On one set of the training videos that come with the first course you buy, the name is Russell Hill. On another, it is David Miller. Are either of them real people?

Here’s the reason I ask that. In my opinion, the many testimonials on his site are likely made by paid actors. This is something that many companies do, and David Miller/Russell Hill is no exception. For example, one reviewer showed pictures of the same man from one of the Profit Genesis testimonials appearing on four other websites.

In the video, you are reassured that you will learn a simple system built around an internet loophole that will allow you to make money quickly. But, wouldn’t that be considered black hat?

Throughout the Profit Genesis video, you get no information about what the company is about, or what you will be selling. David Miller says he has been around for about 5 years with his site. He says he relaunched it, naming it 2.0. Is he trying to claim the original Profit Genesis name as his own?

You are not told there will be work involved. You just pay $37.00 and go to the member’s area. There you will find upsells waiting for you.

#2:  $197.00 Multiple Income Activator

#3:  $97.00 Good Club

Basically, according to one reviewer who must have bought the initial course, this is a drop ship course that teaches nothing new. The basic process is the same as in many other businesses. I buy the products and then ship them to people who live in other parts of the world. I buy products cheap. For example, I might buy from China’s Alibaba, which is their answer to Amazon. Then I ship them to the end buyer.

So, no work? Which products will I sell?

How will I ship them?

 How will I get traffic to my site to see what I have to offer?

Does he train me in SEO, and how to find traffic sources?

Do I have to buy the products I sell, or is this an affiliate marketing site?

His video focuses on emotional reactions, and uses phrases designed to draw someone in. The video informs the viewer that one can work this system to make it 100% on autopilot. He also claims someone can start a business in 15 minutes.

If anyone has any experience with building a website and starting an online business, they will know that his video is full of horse-patooty.

Why are people taken in by such claims? I guess they just want to believe because they want it to be true.

When I analyzed this video for useful information, I found none.

Interesting: After all the hype about how much money you will earn, you will see an earnings disclaimer in the small print at the bottom that says, “There is no guarantee that you will earn any money using the teachings and ideas.”Money Back Guarantee sign

PROS

You are told you can get a refund

There is a training course provided

CONS

High income claims next to impossible

Claims the business can be 100% automated

Testimonials are done by actors (see fiverrs.com)

Information presented is shallow; doesn’t really tell you what the company is about

It appears this man has virtually stolen his name from an honest person’s site

MY OPINION

I have drawn the conclusion that this man, whoever he is, may have used another person’s website name.  Buyer, beware!

Stay far, far away from Profit Genesis 2.0 or Profit Genesis Reloaded. If you want some honest information from a man who just wants to teach you something, go to Profit Genesis.com.

  1. What a great review Fran and I can see how people will get confused and get sucked into spending money on something that isn’t real
    Any online business takes hard work and lots of it so saying its fully automated is a bait to get people to join and is a fraudulent statement

    Thank you so much Fran and keep on giving

  2. I just hate people getting scamed, I was one of them a few years back. I believed everyone like a small puppy, so I spend hundreds of dollars on something that wasnt working, some sites dissapered after some time. I like this site, becouse it makes people aware what is going on, when you are not carefoul. 

    • It’s so true — I, too, joined a couple of the wrong companies.  Wish I’d known enough then to go to Google and look for a review of the company.  I’d have saved some dollars.  Well, at least, I’m in the right place now — I love Wealthy Affiliate and all it stands for.

  3. Hello Fran Kelso,
    I think The Profit Genesis 2.0 (or reloaded) site is full of scam. I know how hard is making money in online through a legit way. In online there are many fraud online money making website. In a week 5000$, this is unbelievable. Through your article I become ensure that the site is full of scam. Thank you so much for your information.

    • It’s true.  It is getting to be harder and  harder to sort the good stuff from the bad.  Hopefully those of us doing these reviews can help steer people in the right direction.

  4. Hi Fran

    I would like to thanks for this article about the profit genesis 2. After reading this article I got a clear idea about it. This is a strategy to make money online. In this 21st century people are concerned about there investment due to the knowledge of it. After all I’ll recommend anyone Wealthy affiliate for it’s top ranking training and money making progress. What do you think should I recommend paid or free membership account?

    Thanks for the article.

    • It is sad that there are so many folks online trying to rip us off.  Makes it hard for us honest folks to convince the world that we are honest.

      With Wealthy Affiliate, I think everyone should start with the free account, because that first week gives them a chance to see what it’s all about and to decide if it is a “fit” for them.

  5. Good evening Fran,

    Fantastic that at your young age you have started a website and inform people about the dangers on the internet. 

    I must say it must be exciting to have bear and moose come for a visit. Did they become “friends” and did you feed them?

    Aha, the real creator of Profit Genesis is not to be found? That starts off with smelling fishy already. Actors hired from Fiverr is the second red flag. It is very sad people fall for these things. After reading your article I certainly will keep away from this.

    Regards, Taetske

    • Yes, the real creator is Anthony Campos, the PhD I mention.  The other fellow stole his name, either knowingly or unknowingly.  I don’t know how people can be so naive.

      No, I’m afraid I haven’t befriended any bear or moose.  I just watch them with interest, and stay away from them.

      Thanks for your comments.
