My Top 4 Recommendations!

Updated:  28 October 2018

I must admit and apologize that I have now found out that, yes indeed IBOtoolbox/IBOsocial is a scam and a total waste of time.

I have many friends at IBO and that is the only reason that I have yet to write a full article on this and also why I have waited until now to update this post.

To the friends who I have in the past referred to IBO, I sincerely apologize and am now asking for your forgiveness.

I didn't know that the traffic at IBO was almost all entirely fake, now I do know!

How did I find out?

As a past Club IBO member ($19.95 per month) I created a banner ad and pointed the traffic to my website specifying only one platform within IBO to share it on.  I also uploaded a few YouTube videos and had my website there as well.

Much to my surprise, my traffic shot up!

At first I was excited but then I saw that the time spent on my site along with my bounce rate were negatively affected.  Not only that but I was getting traffic from all of the other IBO sites as well.  


Yes, that confused me as well, how did my banners and/or YouTube videos get seen on those other IBO sites.  

I then had an idea …… I uploaded more random YouTube videos and pointed the link to my own IBOsocial Profile page.

Guess what happened?

Overnight, I became the #1 traffic leader at the site, so I loaded more and yes I remained easily the traffic leader by far.

I also did the same thing with 2 separate profiles and had the same results, it was so easy.

What happened?

I am so glad that you asked, it has become so obvious that IBO utilizes BOTS on their sites.  I am so amazed that they haven't been found out by Google Adsense as the fake traffic should be against their terms of service…… then again, Google probably doesn't care as long as they are being paid by their advertisers.

Are you reading this and are a member at IBO?  Send me a message if you want more details on the sharing of YouTube while having the learn more link directed to your IBOsocial Profile page.  Any YouTube video 🙂 Load about 13 of them and you'll see that within 24 hours you'll be a traffic leader.  

OK, I am usually not a negative person and that is why I haven't openly disclosed this information until now but I must now share so that more friends don't fall for the IBOtoolbox/IBOsocial scam, especially Kris Karafotas who is either the owner and/or the owner trusts her to run the show there. 

Terrible support & leadership is also part of the IBO scam, the community of friends is the only reason why I stayed a member as long as I did.  Please disregard all of the content below as it was written back when I had no idea that IBO was a scam.

IBOsocial is a scam

Earning a living on the Internet is an extremely actual possibility. Regrettably, like several various other money-making ventures, scammers discover methods to make use of unwary people wanting to work at home online. Consequently, if you're searching for a tested legit on-line home business, you have to do your research and due diligence to vet out the opportunities you locate.

The difficulty is to compare just what is legitimate as well as exactly what isn't. The primary step remains in understanding how scammers and schemers attempt to dupe you. After that, you should know ways to research as well as pick a qualified online business choice.

Tricks Work-At-Home Scammers Use

The first step to identifying if an on the internet chance is legit, is to recognize what fraudsters do to entice you in. Commonly fraud websites look legitimate, suggesting they've appeared on reliable news websites and making fantastic earnings cases. Right here are a couple of things to watch for:

1. Significant revenue insurance claims and warranties.

While there are on-line entrepreneurs that make $10,000 a month, you can bet none are doing whatever program you're looking at. The reality is, the majority of people don't make significantly online. Better, if the word “guarantee” is made use of, never mind analysis on. No person can properly (or legally) assure you earnings unless its a work and also you're being used a salary. While these websites are appealing, utilize your head as well as walk away otherwise you'll end up shedding cash.

2. Quick revenue.

Right alongside large money promises are the cases that you could have it quick, such as in 30 days. Fast, large cash is absolutely impractical. Think of it: if you could truly make $10,000 a month beginning in 30 days doing virtually absolutely nothing, would not everybody be doing it? Wouldn't you personally recognize at the very least someone doing it?

3. Sign up with now or lose out. Fraudsters want to make use of the trick that you could lose out if you don't act currently. Do not fall for this. Any type of legit work-at-home possibility will certainly be good whether you get in today, tomorrow or following year. Poor programs typically are gone within a few months (although they reincarnate a great deal).

4. All your problems fixed.

Fraudsters are the very best copywriters on the planet. Whatever factor you have to make money online, they'll promise it. It's as if their advertisements are composed specifically to you. It's tough to stand up to a program that will certainly fix all your problems, yet you need to ignore the hype and also fluff and also look for the meat of the program. When you do, you'll find that there is no meat. Scammers make huge pledges however are obscure on the details on just how that will happen.

5. No or challenging reimbursement plan.

Without a reimbursement plan, it can be hard to obtain your money back. Some programs use a refund but make you jump with hoops and also reveal evidence of your efforts before they'll consider it. While you can often obtain your cash back when you've been scammed if you submit a fraud report with your credit card business or bank, you're much better off not squandering your cash in the top place.

The Internet does not have magical powers to enable you to earn magnificent incomes over night. Any program that recommends or else is lying to you.

Ways To Research Online Home Income Opportunities

When you discover a Website providing an on the internet organisation possibility that interest you, investigate it before parting with your cash. Some things to check consist of:

1. Search for info

There should be an e-mail or phone number you can call. A physical address is handy too; however many scammers will use the name and also address of reputable firms. Having the ability to call or email allows you to speak with the company. Keep in mind that scammers are good at reacting to pre-sale emails, however not so much customer assistance or reimbursement demands.

2. Validate references

Try to find logo designs on the site of the respective customer defense badges on like the Better Business Bureau (BBB),, Alexa Ranking, i-Cop. org. Don't simply see that they're on the site, as several fraudsters will certainly have these banners making them look legit. Instead, click these logos and also you be required to the customer website where the details is located.

Seek out the domain name on the (previously called Who is) site and see the registration details.For instance, you do not intend to see a telephone number provided as 1234567890. Note, that often scammers will certainly make their details exclusive; although that doesn't indicate a personal enrollment is a fraud. It just indicates you have to do even more work.

If the company makes various other insurance claims, such as honors won or is supported by a person you trust (i.e. a medical professional or celebrity), do a Google search to confirm it. Fraudsters lie.

3. Read the guarantees and also refund plan

All reputable programs will use a warranty, such as a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee. Make sure the assurance is long enough that you could evaluate the program completely. Seven or 14 days isn't really long enough to learn, apply as well as generate income in an on the internet service.

Keep in mind that scammers will certainly “provide” a guarantee, too. Your goal is to read the plan very carefully making certain there're no concealed policies. The very best means to shield on your own from a fraudster that provides an assurance however doesn't repay is to utilize your bank card.

4. Comprehend what the work-at-home program includes

Some of these programs are full of hype as well as guarantees, yet no details on exactly what you'll actually be doing making money. If you reach completion of the sales page as well as do not know exactly how the money is made, walk away.

5. See if there are training as well as support

There's a whole lot that goes into getting a business possibility including learning more about the services or products you'll be selling as well as the advertising strategy. Fraudsters will frequently guarantee great deals of assistance then go away.

6. Review the fine print

I'm usually stunned at just how frequently individuals do not review what they're enrolling in, particularly if they're sending cash. The small print is where fraudsters will certainly obtain ya. It's partly just how they protect themselves from lawful problems. Also in legitimate companies, you have to read the agreement and small print.

6. See exactly what others are stating concerning the program online

A fast Google search using the program name+scam can reveal a whole lot. Pay attention to what people are stating. For instance, if there are issues about non-existent customer support or a failure to get a refund, that's a warning.

7. Rest on it

Remember, any type of program that is good today will certainly excel tomorrow. Stay clear of customer's regret as well as getting scammed by stepping away. Because scammers ready copywriters, you're often believing emotionally, tempted by the concept that all your loan troubles will be fixed if you just sign up with currently. However if you take the time to think about it, you have a possibility to let you going get in the game, providing common sense an opportunity to weigh in.

    You make a lot of good points, but one of the unfortunate things is people jump into what they think is a good opportunity without checking into it properly. 

    If people would use your 7 ways to research the company, they would have less heartache in the end.

  7. I used to fall for these scams because I was looking for the easy way out and thus I lost a lot of money. I thought that these get-rich-schemes would have a secret blueprint, formula or magic button that I could push and that it would make me money without me lifting another finger.

    But what I soon came to realize is that they were all the same and so I started reading reviews about them. That’s when I realized that I had to change my mindset; if I wanted to make any money online, then I had to learn and most importantly, WORK for it.

    I am currently with Wealthy Affiliate and I am so glad I joined this program. As a person who had no knowledge of how money is made online, I have progressed so much! I now understand so much more of what happens behind the scenes and what it takes to be successful.

    Your Social Media Traffic Exchange intrigued me and I like the uniqueness of it.

    Would you elaborate on how much traffic is generated, or is it based on “banner credits”?

    I’m interested in this because this could be a very easy and straightforward way to gain traffic. 

    Thanks Tony.

      thank you for finding this post on my website y Friend.

      The Social Media Traffic Exchange site is indeed very unique, even compared to other traffic exchanges because SMTE is a secure site.

      The banners that are viewed are based upon what size banners that you share along with the amount of Friends who utilize the traffic exchange.

      SMTE is indeed a straightforward and secure way to gain traffic to websites and/or affiliate links as well.

      You are welcome back anytime Thomas and welcome to Social Media Traffic Exchange my Friend,


  13. Hi there Tony,

    Thank you kindly for sharing your top 4 recommendations with us, really appreciated.Thanks.

    Gotta say..some really interesting choices and recommendations there, particularly Wealthy Affiliate!, regarding WA – how do you see affiliate marketing and niche site marketing going in 2018 and beyond?

    Your thoughts and experience appreciated

    • Hi there Derek,

      You are welcome and thank you for stopping by to comment as well as for your question about affiliate and niche site marketing in 2018 and beyond.

      I see affiliate marketing going more toward social media sites and less into the long blog writing of the past.

      I do believe that potential buyers will still search the internet for information and recommendations as well as reviews.

      Because more and more are becoming tech savvy and are more inclined to buy directly from the source even after reading and receiving great information on a niche website.

      The way that I see this not being the case is when the niche blog writer/reviewer is also utilizing social media and has created an audience.

      Thank you Derek, you are welcome back anytime my Friend.


  14. Hey Tony

    I have recently gotten started with WA but am definitely interested in anything that will assist me with becoming successful.

    Glad I found your post. Was looking for other ways to promote WA.

    Gonna start with Social Media Traffic Exchange per your recommendation and later I’ll probably join the other sites.

    • Hey Mr. C,

      Congratulations on getting started and also upgrading at both Wealthy Affiliate and Social Media Traffic Exchange my Friend.

      You will find that as a Premium Member at WA and as a Lifetime Gold Member at SMTE that you have propelled your online earnings and those along with Global Moneyline and IBOsocial / IBOtoolbox that you’ll soon be earning a full time income online.

      Talk with you soon Mr. C, 

      contact me anytime my Friend,


  15. Thank you for sharing Tony,

    I don’t know if I can sign-up for all of the sites at once. 

    Which site do you recommend as the best to get started for making money online?

    Is any of them better for a beginner trying to make money online? 

    I’m just not sure where I should start.  


    • Hi Ty,

      The first site that I would highly recommend for you being a beginner would be Wealthy Affiliate.

      For anyone who is already a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I would next highly recommend Global Moneyline as it’s a wonderful place to share the WA Referrals Links as well as any other Affiliate Program and/or website.

      3rd of the 4 that I would recommend would be Social Media Traffic Exchange as it’s also a wonderful site to share Wealthy Affiliate and/or any secure website and/or affiliate links and banners.

      Last of the 4 that I would highly recommend is IBO IBOsocial / IBOtoolbox, not because it’s less of a great site than the other three, mainly because it’s more in depth and involved than the other 3 and also highly populated with other Internet Marketers.  It is actually a wonderful place to share all 3 of the other sites as well as any website and/or affiliate links.

      Thank you Ty for stopping by and for your questions my Friend, you are welcome back anytime.


  16. Heey Tony!

    I really love your advice to join the other platforms to cover the cost of going premium at wealthy affiliate.

    I’ve never never tried the other plaforms, but I have tried wealthy affiliate and I have to say I’m highly satisfied with courses and everything I’ve learned up till now.

    The best of luck with your endeavors.

  17. Hello Tony!

    Thanks for the intriguing advice! I’m really interested in Social Media Traffic Exchange and these other programs you’ve recommended. 

    I am already a part of the Wealthy Affiliate community, but I’m interested in these others. 

    What do they cost to join?

    I have been looking for ways to promote Wealthy Affiliate, but I haven’t had any success trying this on Google+ and that’s the only place I’ve really tried.

    • Hello Jordan,

      Thank you for stopping by, reading and commenting as well as asking your questions my Friend.

      All 3 sites are Free to join and all 3 are also amazing places to promote Wealthy Affiliate in order to increase referrals as well as income Jordan.

      Contact me anytime, talk with with you soon.


  18. I also heard wealthy affiliate before and I also have heard a lot of success stories as well. 

    I wonder how long it takes to reach success. 

    What are your experiences with it and how much should I work? 

    I think of working a couple of hours every day. 

    What are your experiences with these?

    • Hello Furkan,

      Success is different for each of us my Friend and there are so many variables involved.

      I do know that I have assisted many Friends to become financially free when they joined me at Wealthy Affiliate along with the other 3 sites that I have recommended here.

      Friends who are coachable and have focus are able to accomplish great success and reach their goals in a relatively short time compared to those who aren’t.

      Thank you Furkan for your wonderful question, you are welcome anytime my Friend and I will be here to assist you when you ask.


  19. Hallo there,

    I bumped into this website somewhere on social and decided to check I it out as it kind of caught my attention. This was the best move as it turns out it was the solution I was looking for.

    I wanted the best platforms to make money online with and you have offered me just that. I will surely look more into wealthy affiliate and social media traffic exchange. Thanks a lot.

    • Hello Dave,

      thank you for bumping into my website my Friend.

      Welcome to Wealthy Affiliate and Social Media Traffic Exchange as well, they are 2 great choices for just getting started out and the other 2 can easily be added when you get up and running/earning on the internet my Friend.

      Talk with you soon Dave, you are welcome anytime.


  20. Hi Tony

    I just wanted to thank you for this blog post as it helped me better understand how to go about the W.A side of things and of course the other recommendations; I have much to learn from W. A and btw, my profile name on there is Micky501, and I also wanted to thank you for following me,whatever led you to do so,thank you so much for that as I am in need of people who are genuine about their goals, businesses and their walk with God as well as with a desire to return the blessing/favour. I appreciate on W.A there are many people from different parts of the world with different belief systems but it is amazing to see what you have done with this website (loving the Captain Tony drawing btw) and of course with what the founders of W.A have done as well considering what bad rep affiliate marketing can get but as well as the good etc.

    Anyway, if you do feel led to get back in touch, please do so either via here or through other methods if you so desire such as PM on W.A or email. Be blessed and hope all goes well for you and the community around you! 🙂 Mike

    • Hi Mike,

      thank you for taking the time to read and respond to this article on my website my Friend.

      The caricature drawing was done by a WA Friend named Frank who lives in Hawaii and it’s supposed to be for The Marketing Veteran even tho as you know, it is Captain America with my head and face.

      Talk with you soon Mike, contact me anytime my Friend.


  21. Hi Tony

    Thank you for your answer to David regarding newbies, as it cleared up some confusion on my side as well. I’m brand new to WA, still have to start the training though, it’s just to get the time. I’m glad you followed me, as I feel I’m on the right path now, for I am lost at this stage going forward…

    Lots of gratitude

    Tania Hattingh

  22. Hi there Tony! 

    Thank you for taking the time to share these resources! 

    I’m just getting my WA page off the ground. 

    I’m exciting about looking more into the sites that you mentioned in the article to boost that process along. 

    As just a general comment, I love how open you are to assisting people at any level of starting/running an online business. 

    I can tell from your post and your comment thread that you truly have a passion for what you’re doing. 

    I look forward to reading more of your posts on you site!

    • Hi there Sean!

      You are welcome and thank you my Friend and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

      Thank you for your compliments and for your continued viewing of my posts Sean.

      Talk with you soon,


  23. Tony! 

    Thank you for the recommendations! 

    There are so many marketers out there trying to get newbies onto their sites so they can get them to buy their overpriced programs! 

    One thing I have noticed with the ones you recommended is that they are valuable! 

    Value packed and worth the money. 

    I’ll definitely be checking out some of your other articles as well.

    • Wonderful Cassie!

      I understand my Friend and that’s why I love recommending these programs as they free for as long as you need them to be and aren’t free trials.

      Contact me anytime Cassie, you are welcome anytime.


  24. I am a member of wealthy affiliate but am really interested in joining the social media traffic exchange.
    It makes perfect sense to be using this.
    I am interested in your other two recommendations but want to do a little more reading first.
    You have given me so much to think about and plenty of jobs to do.
    Great post

    • Wonderful Karen,

      thank you for reading and commenting and welcome to Social Media Traffic Exchange my Friend.

      There are many articles about the other 2 sites right here on my website Karen and I welcome you to also contact me with any questions as well my Friend.

      Talk with you soon Karen,


  25. Thank you for the wonderful post you shared. My number one is the wealthy affiliate and I glad to be a full member.

    I will be trying out the social media exchange platform you mentioned as I have just read through the article on your other page, it makes sense.

    The results of your social media activities are simply amazing. Just it up and keep them coming, please.

    I am glad I came across this article today.

    • You are welcome Richard and thank you my Friend for viewing and sharing.

      Wealthy Affiliate is indeed my #1 site that I share with Friends ho are just getting started learning and earning online.

      Talk with you soo Richard as you are welcome anytime,


  26. Thanks for these 4 recommendations Tony.

    From what I gather wealthy affiliate is the main training source at which you’ll learn how to make money online / build a business.

    Then the other programs are ways to help you increase traffic to your current websites.

    Do you use all 4 of these programs on a daily basis, and if so which one would you say helped you the most to make a full time living online?

    • Hi Michael,

      You do have the basic idea my Friend and yes I do utilize each of the websites everyday.

      Using each of the 4 websites that I highly recommend has helped many Friends who I assist to also earn an income while working from home 100% online Michael.

      I love assisting Friends and you are welcome anytime Michael,


  27. Hey Tony Lee!

    What’s up? I wished I would have read this article before I started reviewing online marketing products. 

    It would have been way easier for me to follow your recommendations and check them out.

    I am glad I decided already for WA, but I look forward learning more about online marketing and thanks to your advice I know were to look at soon.

    Thank you so much for providing that info and offering your support.



    • Hey Johann!

      It’s never tool late to get started my Friend & welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.

      You can absolutely learn more about the other 3 sites that I highly recommend by performing a search right here on my website as well as after by contacting me Johann.

      You are welcome anytime and thank you for stopping by to view and comment my Friend.

      Talk with you soon Johann,


  28. Hi Tony, lots of gems in your post, and some of your advice I already have taken action with (i.e. I am a Wealthy Affiliate member for over 2 years now)…

    I will look at the other tools you advise getting and using, they are not ones I know or have dealt with to now. My main focus at the moment is e-commerce, but I still dabble in affiliate marketing…

    In that regard, the Social Media Traffic Exchange might be the one that is most appropriate for the social marketing side of my business. That one I will for sure look at…

    Global MoneyLine is one that I will look at too. I have a limited amount of time I use for affiliate marketing at the moment, as building the e-commerce business is a large endeavor…

    The last recommendation, the IBO Toolbox, is definitely one I will check out. I am always interested in getting to know other marketers in the niches.

    I appreciate the time you have spent putting this post together, there is no doubt that you are helping lead people in the right direction when it comes to online marketing and sales.

    Dave : )

    • Hi Dave,

      it’s such an honor to have you here at my post commenting my Friend.

      I look forward to connecting with you on the other 3 sites that I highly recommend as it’s been an absolute pleasure to be connected with you on wealthy Affiliate.

      You are a true leader in our industry and a great contributor, IBOsocial / IBOtoolbox, Global MoneyLine and Social Media Traffic Exchange will prove to also be great returns on the investment of your time and/or revenue.

      Contact me anytime my Friend as it’s always wonderful to hear from you.

      Cheers Dave,

      Tony 🙂

  29. Hi Tony,
    Very interesting and informative article for anyone who wants to earn extra money online.
    Being new to wealthy affiliate, am still in the initial stages of setting up my website and have learned many new things through this article.
    Thank you,

  30. Thank you, Tony, for your great step by step actions to making money online.

    FYI, I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and Ibotoolbox but not the other 2 platforms.

    I have been advertising in ibotoolbox for quite some time but the response was not encouraging and had since stopped. Do I have to continue advertising there and is there any formula I can use?

    As for the other 2 platforms, I will be headed there soon.


    • You are welcome Shu Hyen Hiew,

      Thank you my Friend for stopping by and commenting.

      As far as IBO goes, consistently being active is the key.  You must build relationships within the community there just like in the outside rel world.

      Welcome to MoneyLine and Social Media Traffic Exchange my WA & IBO Friend, it’s great to now be connected with you at all 4 sites that i highly recommend to all Friends.

      Talk with you soon,


  31. Tony

    Great information laid out in manner to progress toward success. Realize it didn’t happen overnight for you but you seemed to have a organized strategy—not a bad thing to have as a soldier huh ?

    Thanks again for the plan


    • Rick,

      thank you so much my Friend for the wonderful compliment.

      You are welcome and I am honored to be teamed with you Rick and look forward to our continued success.

      Talk with you soon my Friend and thank you for stopping by,


  32. Great site,

    I am always trying to earn money and affiliate marketing is a good way to do that make money that is.

    I am a wa. member and have just started the bootcamp training and I have never heard of these sites but seems to be something to check out. 

    Should i be a little further along in my training, I mean not as a newbie or should I jump right in?

    • Thank you John and congratulations on making the wise decision to get started at Wealthy Affiliate my Friend.

      You can get started with any of the other sites that I highly recommend whenever you would like to John, it’s all up to your comfort level as well as how much time you have available.

      Thank you for stopping by to comment John and you are welcome back anytime my Friend,


  33. Hey there,

    Great information here. 

    Nice to see there is other people wanting to legitimately help others.

    You have some great points and resources to help people make a wise decision on resources to help them build their own online business, without all the fluff many websites have.

    Keep up the great work.

    All the best to your success!

    • Hey there Wayne,

      Thank you for stopping by to read about what I recommend my Friend.

      I appreciate the compliments as well as your opinion.

      You are welcome back anytime Wayne,


  34. Thank you for sharing I heard about a number of software programs that offer affiliate market training. 

    I never could find the one I wanted however Awol cost $100 per month which i found to be too expensive.

    Wealthy Affiliate sounds like something i would interested in for sure. 

    I ask how much does it cost to get a yearly membership?

    • You are welcome Silvano,

      I have never heard of Awol but it doesn’t sound good to me because in the Army that acronym means “Absent Without Leave” and a Soldier would get Court Martialed for that.

      I am a Veteran of The United States Army and would never wish being court martialed onto anyone.

      Also Silvano, I would love to welcome you to Wealthy Affiliate my Friend as that was a very great choice to get started with.

      Wealthy Affiliate has the Free Starter Member that you first sign up to and can remain a Free Starter Member as long as you want and/or need to as it’s not a free trial.  

      The Free Starter Membership never ends until you decide to Upgrade to becoming a Premium Member at WA at which time you will receive the 1st month at the discounted rate of $19.

      After your 1st month of Premium will have the option to either pay monthly at a rate of $49 per month or at the discounted yearly rate of $359. 

      Thank you for your question Silvano, contact me anytime my Friend.


  35. These 4 seem legitimate websites to start your online journey. 

    To be honest, I have only heard about Wealthy Affiliate and Global Money Line, so I would have to check out the other two as well. 

    Do you recommend that anyone should eventually join all 4 programs or could one be sufficient for online success?

    • Hi John,

      thank you very much for the question my Friend.

      Anyone can absolutely be successful with any of the 4 recommended sites, everything depends upon the person’s unique solution so there is no pinpoint exact answer.

      You are welcome to IBOsocial / IBOtoolbox as well as Social Media Traffic Exchange since they are the 2 that you aren’t aware of & thank you for joining me at Wealthy Affiliate and GML as well John.

      Talk with you soon, you are welcome to contact me anytime,


  36. Hey Tony, 

    great post buddy. 

    I like the angle you took discussing Wealthy Affiliate and what they offer as far as getting started in the online money making world. 

    Some people don’t have any idea where to start to begin making money online, but your guide will show them the way. 

    Plus, Wealthy Affiliate is known throughout the entire internet so it’s great that you give them the recognition they deserve not to mention that you’re seen as the guru of work from home because your post is all about it.

    Good job.

    • Thank you R.J. for your testimonial about Wealthy Affiliate my Friend and also the compliment that it’s a great post.

      The other 3 sites are awesome as well and included with my Free Network Marketing Training that I share with all Friends and family who are ready to earn an income online from anywhere in the Planet!

      You are welcome here anytime R.J.,


  37. Hi Tony,

    Thanks for sharing your Top 4.

    I am also a member of IBO. Previously, I bought some credits from them for use in my advertising. Unfortunately, all the credits gone, and yet the results are very minimal. I tried it once more, bought some credits, and then use them to advertise a squeeze page, and yet, no good results.

    Can you share some secrets on how to lower my cost in there, and finally make a killing out of IBO?

    ~ Gomer

    • Hi Gomer,

      You are welcome my Friend & thank you for sharing your experience as well as your results.

      Also thank you for the great question Gomer.

      Take a look at My IBOprofile Page and click on the Press Releases tab at the top along with reading my bio there to know how to improve your results and have a better Return on Investment my Friend.

      Contact me anytime Gomer as I am always available for Friends who ask for assistance,


  38. It is just so amazing how many people are now in this line of work. 

    Making money from home has gained great interest and it does not seem to be slowing down. 

    What you are sharing here is pretty helpful and I am sure that your readers will learn a lot from your post that’s very informative and a great help.

    • Wonderful Norman,

      thank you for taking the time to read and comment on this article my Friend.

      Yes indeed, the world is becoming more and more active on the internet and those of us learning and earning now aare ahead of the masses.

      Talk with you soon Norman,


  39. Tony,
    Great recommendations!

    I think all of these programs are good and they will integrate well with one another. 

    My only concern would be for someone who is a complete newbie to online marketing as they could become overwhelmed trying to setup and integrate four different platforms. 

    Is there a sequence that you would recommend when setting these up?

    • Hi David,

      great point and question my Friend!

      Yes, I would recommend for a complete newbie to Online Marketing start at Wealthy Affiliate, then go to Social Media Traffic Exchange to be able to share their WA Affiliate link as well as banners so as to then be able to cover the cost of upgrading at WA.

      Next I would recommend Global MoneyLine because that site is also a very easy place to share both WA and SMTE in order to earn even more referrals and grow the monthly passive and residual income.

      Lastly I would recommend the IBOtoolbox / IBOsocial site as it is a more complicated and detailed site full of Internet Marketers sharing many different programs within the platform.

      The IBO site is an amazing site as well as are the other 3 above are, anyone who wants to earn an income online will surely be able to when joining the sites and following my advice when asking for it.

      Even more advanced Internet Marketers can click on the menu tab above that says “Other Recommendations” to see how I earn an even greater amount of income online as well as help many Friends earn online also.

      Thank you very much David for this great question that I believe will help so many readers of this post.

      Talk with you soon my Friend,


  40. Hi, Tony!

    I’ve actually heard of Wealthy Affiliate, IBOToolbox and Global Money Line before.

    And after looking into those 3 programs, I would definitely say that WA is the best place for starting and learning to build a profitable business as an affiliate marketer.

    As for your other recommendations, I see them as traffic sources for when you already have a business in place.

    I do also like that all 4 methods allow us to get started with no money down. 🙂


    • Hi Neil,

      Yes I agree my Friend that Wealthy Affiliate is indeed by far the best place for anyone just starting to learn internet marketing to start with.

      As far as waiting to join the other recommendations, I must disagree with you.

      The 3 other sites are great place to share your WA Affiliate link an/or banners at to gain referrals to Wealthy Affiliate Neil.

      The ability to get started at all 4 of them and remain a free member as long as needed without having to give financial information is an absolutely great value included.

      Thank you Neil for stopping by, reading and commenting my Friend.


  41. Is IBOtoolbox a Legitimate Business Owner Toolkit or Waste of Time?Nice little post here. 

    Love the picture Captain…

    Thank you for sharing this post and for providing more information on your recommendations via other posts here on your website.

    I love the ability to learn more about your Top recommendations by being able to utilize your search bar and submitting Wealthy Affiliate, IBOtoolbox / IBOsocial, Social Media Traffic Exchange and Global MoneyLine.

    All the best to your success!

    • Thank you Wayne for taking the time to read this article as well as the time to do the searches and viewing the other posts as well.

      I appreciate your time and communication Wayne, you are welcome back anytime my Friend.


  42. Short and sweet.

    It looks like you are leading people in the right direction. 

    Are you using these sites as well? 

    I can tell on two of them. 

    I’ll take a look at your post about each one. 

    From first glimpse they look interesting. 

    I would love to learn more. 

    I noticed you posted them for someone else so I will take a look.

    • Wonderful Alexis,

      Yes my Friend, I do indeed utilize all of the sites on a daily basis.

      Contact me anytime when you take a look at the posts here on my website Alexis as I am knowledgeable within each of them.

      Talk with you soon Alexis,


  43. Hallo there,

    Thank you for letting us know about your top 4 recommendations to use to make money and online success with.

    I see you have given 4 sites that should be joined and was wondering if they work in the same way or if one complements the other and how much will I need to maintain the accounts and make money through them?

    • Hello Dave,

      the 4 sites are definitely not to be joined my Friend & they do indeed compliment one another.

      All 4 sites can be utilized as a Free member and all 4 have the ability to earn as a Free member as well.

      They do of course all have the ability to earn more when upgrading and the return on investment ROI is amazing with all 4 when a Friend is able to upgrade with them.

      I also personally assist all Friends who ask me for help in order for them to be able to earn with all 4 of them, 1 of them or even 2 or 3 of them.  The best results will happen when all 4 are utilized together but a new Friend can and should go at their own pace.

      Thank you Dave for the great questions my Friend,


  44. Hi, Tony,

    It looks like you’ve come up with an integrated marketing strategy or money making plan that incorporates the 4 websites you listed. 

    I’m a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and have been for a year now, and I read your post on Global Moneyline. 

    I don’t know what IBOSocial / IBOToolbox is, or Social Media Traffic Exchange. 

    Have you written posts explaining those programs too? 


    • Hi Grant,

      yes my Friend I have written posts about IBOtoolbox / IBOsocial & Social Media Traffic Exchange my Friend and they can be found by doing a search in the search bar at the right side of this website.

      The 4 sites that I highly recommend do indeed make an amazing marketing strategy and work very well when utilized independently but also with each other.

      As you know, Wealthy Affiliate is an amazing site and since you have read about Global MoneyLine I am also confident that you have seen the value in that platform as well Grant.

      Thank you for viewing and for your questions my Friend, contact me anytime.
