TLDR for ya

-Guy draws some caricatures of John Chow. Not sure why, but there you go
-John uses them in a blog post, but without permission (bad) but links to his site (good)
-Guy gets irrationally mad, says John "ripped him off of $300" as if he scammed him or stole something
-John takes the pics down
-But it doesn't matter - John's links already gave his blog enough 'juice' to get that post to #1 for "john chow scam".
-So the #1 result for john chow scam is a case of him using images without permission. Not ruining someone's life or something you guys claim he does
-John wins yet again

Getting a SLS would require increasing the points from nine to 18 - 20, but that's no problem because I have over 500 points banked up, and I'm generating 60 to 100 per month at my current sales volume.
At those rates, there's gotta be something a bit nicer than an SLS then?
What else can you get with your points?

One of the new IM cultspeak slang terms tossed around is ‘top tier business’. Translated it means, I’m REALLY going to rip you off you pathetic gullible loser.

I would love to but then it wouldn't be call the car program. The car is part of the marketing to "sucker in people" as you put it. Who doesn't want a free car? This is especially true for guys with families. Odds are the wife would never let the husband buy an expensive Mercedes sports car. But if he was given one for free, then she can't say anything.

Originally, the cars were supposed to be Porsches, but it was switched to Mercedes after discovering that Porsches doesn't have dealerships is some areas car winners lived at. That's was too bad because I was looking forward to getting a 911 GT3. Oh well.

Oh, and to answer your $2,000 per hour question. I rarely do consulting because it's trading hours for dollars and I hate doing that. I create systems that make the money so I don't have to. I set the rate at $2K an hour so nobody will call me. Once in a blue moon, some company will call, but they are few and far enough apart that I don't mind it.

Unfortunately, only cars from Mercedes-Benz. It's call the Merc Program, and having licensees driving around in different brands of cars would dilute the message.

At $200K - $240K, I can think of quite a few other cars I would take over the SLS, but I'm not the one paying for it, so I really can't complain.

Wouldn't hurt for John Chow's face appearance has to match the sucessful abilities, and achievements of his character. "John Chow the hot sexy stud of my top tier business" doesn't that sound wonderful?

By the way Drow, I can out aesthetic you any day.
No you cant

Besides, what kinda MAN tries to out perform another MAN in appearence?

I dont know... Maybe gay guys or better yet... Women.

You think appearence adds points to a man's net worth?

I wouldnt be surprised if its you though... You have a korean lookin girl as your avatar... I assume u into the korean pop scene. That kinda makes sense, since the kpop culture breeds metrosexuals

Maybe thats how you can out aesthetic me anyday, you prob did go thru plastic surgery

Im not even gonna put on my srs hat talking to you, ill just continue to spew dumbass comments to you

Like I said before, I am only pointing out the stupidity and misinformation in this thread. I do that no matter what a thread is about

Any defending is coming from John himself. He doesn't need me to defend the product (nor would I be interested in doing so).

But it's not a free car. You got to be pretty stupid to believe the car is free.

You keep bumping this thread and keep believing that "for every idiot that sees this thread and thinks to buy your product, there is 4000 that realize that John Chow deserves to be shot" is true.

I've been an Internet marketer for over ten years. I'm the 2012 Affiliate Blogger of The Year. I'm one of only 12 recipients of the AFFY Award (presented to me by Ice-T and his wife Coco). I know how the numbers really work, and if you ever decide to study IM, then you would know that the only thing you doing right now is making me money.

If you tell people that they should be shot in front of their family, and that their family wouldn't care, I think you probably have some major, major issues.

Skinnypupp, Ronin do you ever use this tactic on your sites?

Quote:
One of the best ways is by writing reviews of products and then linking to the manufacturer via an affiliate link. If your blog is highly targeted and the product that you’re reviewing is highly targeted to your readership, you can do much better with an affiliate-commission-type structure than you can by just selling advertising for it.

I link directly to the manufacturer sites, so no. I don't see what the problem would be though.

I used to have aggregate price listings for each product I was reviewing, and that was very lucrative for a while (actually this was done through one of John's affiliate sites now that I think about it). But the whole industry died a few years ago.

What a hypocrite, whatever you typed is totally contradicting what you're saying. You called me an "ugly phuc" and I tell you no in doubt I'm more aesthetic than you, you defend yourself by saying "the only way you can out aesthetic me is thru plastic surgery". Seems like you're the one trying to compete with me.

Nobody said appearance has to do anything with net worth. But pretty sure in our society being good looking wouldn't be unfavorable. As cruel as it sounds people do get preferential treatment.

Also please don't even talk about display pictures with me. Look at yours, it looks like a 13 year old girl from the jailbait section of hypebeast. You're into pedophilia...

Everything you spew out is dumbass comments. Why do you need a hats to talk to people. The only hat you need is one that says "Doofus". You should super glue it on your head so everyone doesn't have to communicate with you.
