My Final Opinion of PROFIT CANVAS

They make it sound so easy to make money on line. Buy my software and drag and paste and start making money.
Profit Canvas is an all-inclusive software program that has all the tools and training you will need to be successful in your own Internet business. Every thing is done for you.

Here at Profit Canvas you can copy Mike and Brett’s results.
I don’t know. They tell us you don’t have to have an email list, no products, no website and no hosting.

I guess this is all built in. But what about TRAFFIC? Gotta have Traffic.
May be the program doesn’t have to have an email list to start, but you are going to have to generate some kind of traffic and start building an email list to build your list to sell to.

    1. Is Profit Canvas going to furnish you a list?
    2.   Are they going to teach you how to build a list or just say go here and go there and start building a list.
    3. Who manages and stores your list and information for the campaigns you start?No Traffic no Sales. You have got to get people to want to come to your website or there is no one to sell to.

PROFIT CANVAS at a Glance…

Their website looks great.  Lots of color and lots of excitement in their sales page.  But if this system is so easy and makes so much money, why are they giving it away?

Just asking.  I guess I am a little curious.

In my opinion, Profit Canvas is another of hundreds of programs out there trying to sell you their software programs to make you money on line.

I believe a lot of their software is good and usable and there is some training to go along with it.
There is no forum or community to turn to to interact with and gain support and real time help when you need it.

I do think you can make money with their products, but they are not telling you about any traffic. And there is, I think, the catch in the whole system. There are Millions of Buyers out there, and there are Millions of Sellers. How do you put them together?

I have to say that the training programs I am taking now is a much better system to go with.
Why? Because. Wealthy Affiliate takes you by the hand and starts training you as if you knew nothing about the internet at all.

The training here will give you the knowledge to build you an Internet Business that will last a life time and not just for a fleeting moment.

1. The great thing about this program is that Wealthy Affiliate is not selling you a product, this is a teaching program and it is always being updated. They aren’t teaching old out dated technologies and software.

2. There is a community of thousands to seek any help or advice from. You get involved with people that are doing the same thing you are doing and are more than happy to help.  Not just to help but also you make new friends here because these people are doing the same thing you are,  wanting to learn how to build an online business.

3. Test drive before you buy. You get one full week of training free. No out of pocket expense and you use the system and interact with the community. Ask any questions you like and Kyle and Carson(owners) are out there to answer questions as well.

4. For test driving the system for one week Wealthy Affiliate is going to give you two Free WordPress Websites.  Already to start blogging on.

They are all set up and ready to put on the internet. All this is Free. No cost to use for a week while you test drive the Best Training Program in the industry.

If you decide not to join, no problem, keep the two websites as our gift to you for test driving the program.

These guys are selling KNOWLEDGE –  not a product.  Kyle and Carson are teaching us to build a solid foundation for our online business from the ground up.  And they will be there all through the training and after you start making money they and the community will still be there for support and guidance.


Website: www.profitcanvas.com

Owners: Brett and Mike

Price: $37–$67 plus OTO’s

Overall Scam Rank:20 out of 100


My Verdict would be LEGIT. This program gives a lot of value in it’s software and training.
I don’t think that it teaches enough about traffic and the need for lots of traffic.

This program I don’t think will give you a sound foundation to build your Own On Line Business as well as Wealthy Affiliate will.

The program I recommend will teach you and arm you with the knowledge and foundation you have to have to build any business.

The training here will not be over night. This training will take time to learn and put into practice. In the training you build your own websites and learn to review products, find your niche, build out your websites and gain stature within the Google community.

These are some exciting times and some very exciting training coming your way.

Marketing plans

Guide Lines for Drafting a Marketing Plan.

What is a Business Marketing Plan?


A marketing plan is an outline for a company’s marketing strategies throughout the year.
A marketing plan, unlike your Business Plan, sets down the strategy the company will use to build on and the direction in which the company will grow and achieve it’s long term goals in Marketing their product.

Your Internet Business is like any other company in that planning and future strategies are essential for good company health and growth.

Some company’s may plan for 3 to 5 years depending on the type of market they are in.

Part of your strategic planning should include Wealthy Affiliate for long term Professional Training in Internet Marketing.

Wealthy Affiliate is the leader in the industry for training in Internet Marketing and making money online.


Tactical planning is more short term planning. The tactical plan takes the Strategic plan and breaks it down into short term goals. These short term goals and plans are usually implemented by department or company function.


Executives have a better understanding of the Corporate structure and how it works. Usually executives are geared toward strategic planning for the company.

Managers in the company know more of the day to day operations of the company and are responsible for tactical planning.

Executives are planning strategies for the future operation of their company’s while the managers are planning tactical operations for today.

Tactical planning is much more detailed and flexible because of the day to day operation of the company than strategic planning. Strategic planning is long term planning for the future.

According to businesscoachingexecutive.com, flexibility in the face of change is a necessary component of the ongoing tactical planning process.

In any company’s Tactical planning there has to be built in flexibility. Goals have to be readjusted or extended.

Name: Profit Clicking

Website: ProfitClicking.com(Now is called Ad Click Xpress(ACX) for short)

Price: $3.00 starter add. Other costs associated here are revealed upon sign up in their program.


ACX is owned by an International Holding co. (but doesn’t say who they are) and lead by qualified online marketing specialists with over 80 years of experience. But they don’t say who any of these people are. I am sure they tell you something after you sign up.

Product Overview:

Ad Click Xpress (ACX)–formerly ProfitClicking—Is an online advertising company. ACX offers services and products to Business Advertisers.

Providing inexpensive, effective advertising solutions to small businesses and individual clients since their Launch in June 2013.

Member Affiliate

ACX’S member affiliate program is effective for providing Business Advertisers more value. The members are given the opportunity to earn very generous daily commissions by viewing Business Advertisers’ websites on the ACX Traffic exchange.

This Co. is touting membership in the Millions Worldwide. With these Millions, Business Advertisers can expect a steady stream of visitors to their websites.

This has been a short overview of Ad Click Xpress (formerly ProfitClicking)

The Good and The Bad

The Good:

PRO# 1: Generous daily commissions are a great incentive and a steady income.

PRO# 2: To get daily commissions it sounds like you have to view fellow Businesses websites.

PRO# 3: Very good part time Home Business with a passive income as well.

PRO# 4: Inexpensive way to advertise your websites and businesses on line.

The Bad:

CON# 1: Con # 1 is very interesting. I started out reviewing ProfitClicking.com, but when I

entered that URL I was directed to Ad Click Xpress. AdClickXpress.com launched in

June 2013. So I Google ProfitClicking Reviews and “boy” did I get an ear full.

CON# 2: Hidden costs you don’t know anything about until you sign up to the program

to find out all the costs involved.  Some of the people are filing complaints

because of large commissions that aren’t getting paid.

CON# 3: ProfitClicking is under investigation and it looks like to me all they did was change their

name to AdClickXpress(ACX) and kept doing business.
CON# 4: All of these managers and up line people are out of country and cannot be held

accountable if a problem comes up. To me this sounds like a Ponzi Scheme.

Who is AdClickXpress (ACX) for?

This is an online advertising service. Targeted mainly to Website and Business owners looking

for inexpensive advertising, and also a way they can generate some income. You have to pay for

advertising but you can participate in an Affiliate program and earn commissions.

ACX Tools and Training.

There doesn’t appear to be any training. You have to go to your managers or ACX Help menu.

ACX Support:

There appears to be support some where. I couldn’t tell because the company said their
managers and staff are spread out all over the world, so I couldn’t determine where they might be.

ACX Price?

Hard to tell. They talk about $3.00 starter adds. Then tell about $10.00 for 600 adds and then it seemed like there were more costs down the line but I couldn’t tell what they were or how much. Some of the reviews on Google were telling of being invested from $1600.00 to around $4000.00. So I don’t know.

My Final Opinion of AdClickXpress(formerly ProfitClicking.com)

I am very Leary of getting involved with a company that is so secretive that they won’t tell you

what your up front costs are and if, or how much, there are costs after you get started.
So far ACX in their up front advertising will not tell you any names of their Holding Co. or any

CEO’s, Managers or supervisors.

My Verdict:

I would have to give a verdict of NO. At this time I would not risk any money or time with this company.

If you are sincerely looking to find a reputable co. to learn and grow with I would look at

Wealthy Affiliate. This will cost you about: 5 minutes of your time and not One Red Cent out of

your pocket. These people will teach you anything you need to know to get on line and start

making money.

What would I have to do to sell jewelry online? Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?


Jewelery is something I, (Frank), know something about, and my wife, (Ginny) knows quite a lot about. Ginny got acquainted with jewelry design and making in collage in the late 60’s “don’t dare ask me her age”, and she has been making, buying and selling it ever since.

Vintage pieces from the past.

Vintage pieces from the past.


Ginny and I had gotten interested in Auctions about 25 years ago and working for several different

Auctioneers I was able to take my test and was given my Texas Auctioneers license.

Western Antiques are Prized at Auctions

Western Antiques are Prized at Auctions

We have dealt in a lot of different merchandise. Bought and sold a lot of vintage and antique jewelry, furniture, cars, trucks. Believe it or not, at one of my Auctions we sold a Gold Fish. Now that was an odd one. Along with Parrots, Chickens, Ducks and furniture, I think I have sold just about everything, except I haven’t had any red wigglers come across the Auction Block as yet. Don’t be to hasty now. You never know.

Getting ready for a Texas Twist and a Twirl at the Ho-Down Saturday Night

Getting ready for a Texas Twist and a Twirl at the Ho-Down Saturday Night


Well. Let’s see. In the United States Of America we have a population estimated at 966,139,408. Those of us doing something online is estimated at about 602,293,593. How about the rest of the world? That figure is estimated at 2,200,185,341. “Gee Willikers Andy”. I Mean, Brother. Is there Room? What can I say? You do the math. Even 1 1/10th of 1% is a heck of a lot. Yah, there is plenty of room on the internet. Ebay’s estimated worth is somewhere around 70 Billion, BBBB Billion Dollars. You have to understand. Buying online is increasing daily. I don’t think it will ever get saturated.


Baby Boomers retiring soon. Moms at home wanting to make a little extra income. Dads wanting to tell their Boss, “You Are Fired”. Learning how to start a home based internet business could be just the ticket for you. I know, I know. This kind of business isn’t for every body. But hey. If you just a residual income to help your retirement, or your present job, that would be well worth the effort.



Ginny and I have sold jewelry in our own Auction house, Garage sales, Estate Sales, sold on Ebay, on Line, and had our own online Auction.
We are both retired now and want to slow down a little bit. I still want to supplimeant our income with Internet marketing, so I got Ginny to teach me a little about the computer.


You see, in my time, growing up as a Baby Boomer I didn’t know what a computer was. Ginny was working for Travis County. At that time they were using punch cards to feed into this Hugh Bank of machines.


These old machines took up a lot of space

These old machines took up a lot of space

I told Ginny then, I couldn’t understand why anyone would sit there and punch a bunch of holes in a piece of card board and put it in a machine to tell a machine what to do! Why don’t you just type out what you want. Seemed to me a big wast of time. Of course, I see where that went.
I started to learn some things about the computer a few years ago, but I am still a “babe in the woods” when it comes to the machines and the Internet.


This is one thing you really have to watch out for. Scams. I have spent hundreds of dollars on Internet Marketing courses that were supposed to teach me how to make money on the Internet. Talk about being scammed, brother, I have had my share.
I suppose in my interest to learn Internet Marketing I was pretty Gullible, and naïve. Expensive lesson. But I was sold on the Internet. With 2 billion people on the internet I just had to take a shot.


Today I am trying to help people that are interested in Internet Marketing and want to learn the right way to get into selling online. And NOT get cheated. If you are like me you have learned over time that “all is not what it seems.” Now you can struggle along and learn how to get on Ebay, or become an Amazon Affiliate to sell your items online. If you don’t have a teacher to guide you through setting up accounts, and even getting your own website set up, then you are in for a long arduous journey.


Well, like me, you have to learn some where and from some one. I wasn’t born with a computer in the house. I went to school with my Big Chief tablet and a #2 lead pensil. Everything had to be in long hand, and we had to show our work. Especially in math. Didn’t show your work, you got marked down.
Don’t even think about taking a calculator in that class room.

At around 5 or 6 years old today these kids know more about computers than I do. It is just like they were born already programmed to operate a computer.

You hear a lot of people talking about selling online. Some of them are even talking about making big money in online marketing. WOW! Sounds great right? But where do you go to get started selling things online?


There are lots and lots of businesses that teach Internet Marketing. You have to be care full of the scamers out there.
The old adage, “Trust but verify,” holds true here. Check every thing out. Read reviews, Google the company name and find out what Google has to say about the business. No matter what they say, don’t be pressured into buying anything, until you have checked their creds (credentials).


If you are just getting started, or an experienced marketer you need a website and a hosting company to get started learning about Internet marketing.
I work with Wealthy Affiliate. I KNOW! Hear comes the sales pitch.
Not from me Brother. I believe in free and test driving before buying.


I am not going to sell you on Wealthy Affiliate, because Wealthy Affiliate sells itself. When I say test it out before you buy it, I mean you are going to get introduced to one week of super training and access to our community of thousands of members.
Believe me you can pose any question to the community you want. Hey, be honest and ask them if this is a scam, and ask if Premium is worth it. There are over 10,000 members here and they are not going to lie to you. There is nothing to gain. These are honest hard working people that are after the same things you are.


We use WordPress for our websites. They are known nation wide with over 76million downloads.
Take Wealthy Affiliate on a one week test drive, “On their dime.” No cost to you at all. You are going to get 1 week of some of the finest training on the market today, for FREE. If you do not want to stay with us after that week, it is OK. You keep two, fully functional WordPress Websites absolutely free. These two Websites are ready to put on line and start making money with. All you have to do is customize the sites and get a hosting company and start blogging.

Overall Ranking: I am really not sure how to rank this company. I am very open to suggestions. Could you email me at the address at closing of this article?

Price: Free starter up to $3000.00

Owners: Publicly traded—Founder and CEO is Michael Hansen

Website: dubli.com


Actually, there is no real single product. This company is paying commissions on products being bought from the people you bring into the co.

This co. is a global marketing company. Dubli offers the opportunity to build an on going successful business through, what I believe, is MLM. Could be wrong.

I don’t know. But they say you can build a good business generating income from millions of products and services that people buy on line every day.

Hansen says “You can build a global distributor organization that focuses on selling a variety of membership packages for Dubli.com.”


Direct—Selling. Relationship Marketing. In selling this way Dubli claimes that this allows the co. to pay commissions generated from the member’s online transactions instead of spending it on advertising. They say this will give the associates a big residual income stream.

This is where I think MLM comes into play. You build up your customer base, they build up their customer base, and eventually you will be able to see your customer base keep building and building with no end insight.

You get cash bonuses, and your member’s get cash bonuses through the customer referrals program.

All you have to do is get people to sign up and get them to get people to sign up and get them to get people to sign up—–Wow, wearing my self out with sign ups.

Try out a review I did for Wealthy Affiliate when you get second.  Click this link and it will take you to my review.


Dubli Networks bills themselves as a company for anyone, that wants to earn a very exceptional income, with one of the most revolutionary compensation plans in the world.

Any one can use the program, young, old, not very savvy on the computer. Anyone that can get people to sign up in the program and start buying on line, no matter who they buy from as long as the company is in the network.


They have training on how to set up your network, and how to get people to join.

You can join for free to get a percentage back from every thing you buy.

And to make a bigger percentage you can go premium an then to Vip Membership which gives everything Dubli has to offer. This is an annual subscription plan and gives the best of each one of their platforms.


Support. It appears all of your support comes from your up line. The person that signed you up in to the program. He will teach you how set up the program, get businesses and individuals to sign up, and give you all of the fundamentals and ongoing support.


Check out a comparison Nathaniell wrote.  Very interesting

Check out a comparison Nathaniell wrote. Very interesting

I don’t know. I didn’t sign up. I have seen some reviews that stated that you have $99.00 a month for one program, and $3,000.00 per year. Couldn’t tell you but if this is close I wouldn’t do it.

Of course you have to remember, I have been burned several times from MLM’s. So I am a little sour on them, and I don’t like them very much.


My final opinion of Dubli.com is a big WOW!!! They present themselves as being the most wonderful money making co. around.
From what I can tell they have been around since about 2009. Some reviews were very, very, bad.

But in saying that I want to let you know these reviews were all anonymous. Take that for what ever you think.

Personally I do not think much of Anonymous.

The co. has very good reviews, naturally.

As I have said before I do not like MLM’s. Most of the money I have found was at the top and did not filter down.
Is it this way with this co?

I do not know. To me it just doesn’t sound right, and they do not tell you cost until you sign up. Don’t like that either.

In my humble opinion I am not going to invest in a co. that will not tell me up front what I can expect to spend to make a million dollars.

Guy’s. I am going to stay with Wealthy Affiliate.

I know what exactly I am paying for and what I can expect in the future. Besides that I have a 10,000 member strong forum to draw from with tons of experience.

Thanks Folks for reading my review and hope it was helpful.
