20 Minute Results Review – Can You Really Get Results in 20 Minutes?

6

I am always a bit skeptical when I see a product making unrealistic claims.  This one claims you can spend 20 minutes a day and make $100 or more every day.  I suppose it’s possible, and I didn’t want to write it off entirely, so let’s take a look.

Introduction


Let’s start with the sales page.  To be honest, it’s a little difficult to determine what they’re selling here.  Most of the page is spent telling you what 20-Minute Results is not.

What you do get is a series of 8 videos, the total of which amount to about 30 minutes.  It doesn’t sound like much, but we’re talking about less than 7 bucks here.

What do the videos cover?  There are a number of topics covered, but the main way they teach to make money works like this:

  1. You send people to a page where you get them to enter their email address for a free download.
  2. Once they enter their email address, they are directed to a “Thank You Page” where they can download the content.
  3. When they click on the “Download” link, they are asked to fill out a form to receive the download.  This form actually has nothing to do with the download.  It is actually a third-party site that will pay you commissions for getting people to fill out their form.
  4. There is another link on the “Thank You Page” that directs people to your “blog.”  It’s really just a page full of duplicate content with a bunch of ads, which you get commissions for if people click on them.
  5. You send additional emails to your subscribers to get them to your blog and clicking on ads.

The sales page claims that this is better than affiliate marketing because you don’t have to actually make a sale.  You get commissions without your subscribers ever having to spend a dime.

 

The Good – What I Like


happy face1. Price.  For $6.90, you almost have to figure what the heck.  Why not give it a try?

2. Free websites.  You get the squeeze page and the blog with this product, absolutely free.

3. Some useful information.  You will learn some useful information, such as how to build a website, how to do email marketing, and how Google AdSense and similar programs work.

 

The Bad – What I Don’t Like


1. CPA Marketing.  CPA stands for “Cost Per Acquisition,” and it means getting paid for directing people to fill out forms and click on ads.  Now there’s nothing wrong with CPA marketing, except that if you look at the section above from the sales page, it has in big red letters:

NOTHING to do with CPA

So the advertising isn’t exactly honest.

2. Your subscribers are tricked into doing things to earn you commissions.  As I said above, there’s nothing wrong with CPA.  However, in this case, your subscribers are tricked into filling out a form just to get a free download.  There is no effort to create useful content, either in the download or the blog.  In fact, the blog is just duplicate content copied from everyone else who buys this product.  So your subscribers will be getting nothing of value.  They’re just pawns you’re using to fill out forms and click on ads so you can get paid.

3. How do you get people to your page? The sales page promises to show you how to get 100% free traffic.  Once you get inside, they tell you how they used paid traffic and, since they made a profit, it was “basically free.”  Does that mean if you buy a Superbowl commercial for a million dollars and make 2 million off the ad that the ad was “basically free?”  Not exactly.  Another dishonest claim.

 

Price


The basic program is $6.90, and for that you get the 8 videos described above.

But that’s not all.  There are a number of upsells offered.

Upsell #1 – $27.  An email series offering access to their secret advertisers

Upsell #2 – $27.  50 blog posts you can use on your blog.  Unfortunately, everyone gets the same posts, so this is duplicate content.

Upsell #3 – $197.  Private mentoring.

 

Final Verdict

Ultimately, I cannot recommend 20-Minute Results.  While you might get some useful information and free website templates, I believe the entire business model is doomed to fail long-term.  You cannot build trust with your subscribers by offering them no useful content and tricking them into performing tasks to earn you commissions.

They are correct that affiliate marketing is more difficult; you do have to make a sale to earn a commission.  But at least you’re coming by your commission honestly.

 

If Not 20-Minute Results, Then What?


If you really want to start an online business, you need to think long-term.

There are lots of sites offering to teach you how to make money online.  I have reviewed a lot of them here, and there are lots of them out there that I’m sure I’ve never heard of.  But the best one I have found so far is Wealthy Affiliate.

  1. I have never believed in get-rich-quick schemes or overnight success. Paying $6.90 to make $100 a day sounds too good to be true so I never would subscribe to something like this 20 Minute Results. I am a premium member of Wealthy Affiliate and I can truly say that this is one legitimate program. I have had my shares of scams in the past and joining WA was one of the best decisions I have made. I have just clicked on the link to your review of WA and I can truly say that WA gives real value for money. I get access to tons of training materials and outstanding support both from Kyle and Carson and the awesome community that I am a part of.

    1. Kathy, I have been doing a lot of research on products that promise to teach how to make money online. Some of them are pretty good, and some not so good, but I have yet to see one that measures up to Wealthy Affiliate in terms of value and the sheer volumes of information you get. Maybe someone will create one in the future, but until they do, Wealthy Affiliate will continue to be my #1 Recommended Product.

  2. Hello and thanks for sharing, I is so amazing how these fly by night just spring up claiming to be something when they are not, promising you the world when it is all a dream, In this day and time we ought to be careful and do our hope work before we take the dive or we could be scammed. But wealthy affiliate has to time and time again proven to be rock solid, I would recommend wealthy affiliate to anyone because wealthy affiliate is a community that you can trust.

    1. YOu definitely have to be careful out there, Norman. I don’t believe 20 Minute Results is a scam. I just don’t think it provides much value. I think they are clearly going for volume here, with the low price and all, and maybe someone might make some money with it, but as I said, I don’t believe it’s a long-term solution to making money online. As you probably know, to learn how to build a long-term business online that will generate passive income for years, I still believe Wealthy Affiliate is the product to beat.

  3. Yes, sounds more like 20 minute failure. I see were they are coming from, you did a great job laying out how the program works. I will be sure to stay away from this one. Simply for the fact that all you get is duplicate content should be enough for anyone to know to stay away. Wealthy Affiliate is by far the much better option!

    1. Nate, the problem with duplicate content is that Google actually penalizes sites that are found to have duplicate content, so if you did follow their method, you probably would not get any organic traffic at all, which is why they go the paid traffic route. That’s fine… nothing wrong with paid traffic, but in their sales pitch, they lead you to believe it’s all free traffic. Not being upfront and honest is a huge red flag.

  4. Hi Andy,

    Your review of 20 Minute Results is very useful. By the looks of it, the product is not something that is worth recommending to anyone. The claim is outrageous… earn $100 or more every day. Just too good to be true. Anyone who pays $6.90 will get what they pay for… pay cheap and you get cheap product.

    1. Hi, Norma.

      I know it is a cliche, but it also happens to be true. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. I would love to be able to find a business model that required little to no work, little to no investment, and that could earn you a full-time income. Who wouldn’t? Unfortunately, that business model doesn’t exist. The reality is if you want to earn a full-time passive income, you are going to do a lot of upfront work, and you have to be willing to earn very little money while your business is getting off the ground. What I love about Wealthy Affiliate is that they teach you how to work smartly so that you don’t waste your time making mistakes so that the hard work that is required is not wasted. And since it’s FREE to get started, there’s really no reason to not give it a try.
