3 Step Method makes some outrageous claims, making you think you’ll be making money at a push of a button without doing any work whatsoever.
This is further from the truth, and should be the first red flag that the owners aren’t being truthful.
There are no shortage of these programs on the internet that sell a pipe dream that fail to live up to the claims.
However, what makes the 3 Step Method so different, if at all?
Well that’s what I want to talk about today.
The bottom line is that the concept is legit and does work, but there are so many variables that will determine if you make money or not.
Again, I will explain EVERYTHING you need to know about the 3 Step Method in this review.
Because I would always get roped into these programs before I found a legit way to make money online.
I was always buying new programs and even spending money on the upsells (literally hundreds of dollars) because I would think they would work.
Needless to say, they did not, and the 3 Step Method possesses all of the tactics that 99% of scams out there use today, and right now I’m going to discuss them all.
Lets get right into it.
What is the 3 Step Method?
Before we get into the reasons why this program is not legit as it seems, let me talk about what it is and what you get for your money.
On the sales page you will see a man saying you can make money on autopilot in as little as a few days by doing little-to-no work.
All that’s required of you is to buy the system and the automated program will work for you.
Again, I want to drive home that this couldn’t be any further from the truth.
So what are they actually talking about that?
How will you be making all of this money on autopilot?
Something called affiliate marketing
First let me say that affiliate marketing is legit. This is how I make all of my money online.
I create blogs targeting a niche, create content, and rank in Google. When people click on my links and purchases something, I make a sale.
That is affiliate marketing.
But as you’re about to find out, there is certainly not enough training in the 3 Step Method for anyone to make a dime.
3 Step Method Training Material
Here’s what you will get inside this program for paying the one-time fee of $37.
A 1500 word page on the absolute basics of affiliate marketing, something you can find for free on Google and YouTube.
The 1500 word document talks about leveraging online assets and applying affiliate marketing to earn commissions.
And it goes like this
Step 1: Choose a niche
Step 2: Create an online assets (this could be anything from a blog, YouTube channel, Twitter account, Instagram brand, etc).
Step 3: Promote products in your niche and receive commissions
Does this work?
The bottom line is yes it does work, but it’s not as easy as it sounds.
If you’ve already tried your hand at affiliate marketing and posting affiliate links on social media, then you would know that making a sale is almost impossible (without building up a loyal following first).
The 3 Step Method hypes itself up to the max, sells a pipe dream, and makes it sound like you’re going to be raking in the moolah within a matter of days, when this is not the case.
When something doesn’t deliver on the promises, it is called a scam.
And I’m going to expose the hell out of this program below because I was someone that would get roped into these false promises before I found a legit way to make money online (FREE method).
So here goes.
12 Reasons Why 3 Step Method is a Scam
1. There’s not enough training
The concept works, but there’s not enough training in the 3 Step Method to actually make money.
You’re told the basics of affiliate marketing, which just isn’t enough.
You need to know how to generate traffic to your blog, how to build a loyal audience, how to provide value, how to sell without looking spammy, etc, etc.
2. The owners know you won’t make money
The owners, or owner, knows without a shadow of a doubt that anyone who purchases this system won’t make money, due to the reasons I outlined above.
They know it’s not as easy as they make it seem, and for that reason, they stay completely anonymous.
Nowhere on the internet you can find the owner of the 3 Step Method, and even worse, they’re using paid actors on all their videos.
3. Paid actors
The spokespeople are paid actors that can be hired for as little as $5 on the Fiverr website.
For those that don’t know, Fiverr is an online marketplace for freelancers.
You pay someone for a service, which could be a blog post, getting social media followers, creating a logo, or in this case, reading out a script.
Now you have someone that appears to be a professional talking about how much money they made with the 3 Step Method, but actually has nothing to do with the program.
4. Hyping it up to the max
On the official sales page, they continue to make it seem like you’ll be making money around the clock without doing anything.
They continue with these false promises because, well, it’s what sells the easiest.
I mean, they aren’t totally lying because like I said, the concept works, but as we all know, concept is NOTHING without the details…which is everything they leave out.
5. False Promises
Not only are they overhyping up this system, paying actors to lie, they’re giving you false hope.
They know no one can make money with their system, so they promise things they can’t deliver.
And of course they are only doing this to increase their own bank account.
6. Low value training
The training is so low value that you can find the information for free on a Google blog post.
There’s nothing special inside this “1500 word document”.
And because they know most people are desperate to make money online, they’ve invested $37 already, so they’re more likely to buy the upsells.
7. Expensive upsells
Uhh, the good old upsells, something that I fell for back in my day of trying to “make it”.
I bought a few upsells worth hundreds of dollars that would never deliver on the promises.
To this day I always look at it as a learning experience rather than a loss. I learnt so much from all of my fails so that I can teach people the things they need to know.
The upsells promise even more money (only for an additional hundred bucks of course)
- Upsell #1 ($97) – Triple your earnings
- Upsell #2 $147 – Done-for-you income stream website
- Upsell $3 – $47 – For their insider secrets to making 6-figures per year
Of course these are typical scammer tactics to squeeze even more money out of you.
If the first training doesn’t work, I have zero confidence that the upsells work as well.
8. They do not show you an “automated system”
The claims of showing you an automated system are nothing but lies.
It’s possible that you can make money on autopilot from a blog or social media brand when it is fully established (after months and years, NOT in a matter of days).
That is the difference.
You have to work on it for months and sometimes years before you can make a full-time income from it.
9. High refund rate
For reference, below is a screenshot I pulled from Clickbank.com.
Clickbank is a market place of digital online services where people can promote products and earn commissions (affiliate marketing).
Below is the screenshot. What I want you to look at is the “Avg $conversion” on the right hand side.
The price of 3 Step Method is $37 and there are upsells, so affiliates should be earning at least $40 per sale.
However, this tell me that at least 50% of people are applying for a refund.
A 0% refund rate would be mean $37 per sale, however, $16 means most people are applying for a refund!
That is shocking. It says a lot about the quality of the so-called “training”.
10. The owner stays hidden
There’s no mention of the owner anywhere, and no contact page on the 3 Step Method website.
This is a huge red flag as the owner would rather stay anonymous than show their identity.
Because they know they’re creating low quality products and can continue to create more in the future.
I mean, if I created such a great 3 step method that didn’t require any work, I would be incredibly proud and want my name everywhere.
But this is just not the case, as with all of these scammers…every one of them loves to stay anonymous.
11. You do not “ONLY need an internet connection”
One thing that really grinds my gears is when they use the old “all you need is an internet connection” trick.
This is an old school tactic.
They do it so people think that anyone who buys this system will be laughing all the way to the bank as soon as they sign up, which just isn’t possible.
As I’ve mentioned many times in this review, it’s generic information on affiliate marketing and that’s it.
I can guarantee that anyone who bought this system made no money, and even proved with a statistic that at least 50% applied for a refund.
12. Support is non-existent
Support is nowhere in site. The buttons are just their too look pretty and to help them look more legit.
However, as people have found out, there’s just no support for members who buy this program and have more questions and concerns regarding the system.
And I’m not surprised. All of these programs offer no help whatsoever, but will happily take your money to pay for their Lambos.
The Pros and Cons
Even though it might be one big and utter scam, they still offer something for your money, albeit generic as hell.
Let’s dive into the pros and cons so you can see whether it’s for you or not.
- A basic run down on affiliate marketing and how to build an online asset
- 60-day money back guarantee
- Information is generic as hell
- Not further details
- No one is making money with this system
- Not worth the price
- False promises
- Anonymous creator
- Customer service is nowhere to be seen
How Are They a Scam if Affiliate Marketing is Legit?
“But Brandon, if creating a blog or social media account and selling products is legit, how is 3 Step Method a scam when they teach that stuff?”
Here’s the deal
They’re selling a pipe dream via a program that cannot deliver on the claims.
That is the bottom line.
While the concept does work, the training they offer simply will not work due to a lack of information.
It’s like me creating an e-book saying you you can make $10,000 with my system, but you will need to pay $47 to access it. And all it is is a a 500-word e-book on ecommerce.
The concept works, but the information is too generic.
And that’s why anyone who buys 3 Step Method will not make any money.
Can I Get a Refund?
Because 3 Step Method is on the Clickbank marketplace, you will be purchasing the product through Clickbank.
Thankfully CB offers a 60-day money-back guarantee on all of their products, no questions asked.
So if you feel that you got ripped off after thinking you struck gold, only to be let down with a one-page piece of junk, you can contact Clickbank and apply for a refund.
Do not contact the creators of 3 Step Method as you will hear nothing but crickets.
Also giving refunds is out of their hands anyway as the product is sold through Clickbank, so you will need to contact them instead.
Where 3 Step Method Falls Short
I’ve mentioned many times that they don’t offer enough information to actually make money, so where do they fall short?
Lets say you create a blog and choose a niche.
You still have to pay for a domain name, hosting plan, choose a niche, find low-competition keywords, attract visitors, add affiliate links, and a lot more.
Another example is using Instagram and selling products.
Because there is so much competition these days, you have to set yourself apart.
You have to know how to build a real brand account, grow your followers organically, how to provide value, how to be unique, and much more.
My Final Opinion on the 3 Step Method
The bottom line is this:
The owner created this program to build up his own bank account knowing full well there’s not enough details for anyone to make money.
These typical scams are everywhere, and it’s the exact same kind that I got roped into many years ago when I first started looking for ways to make money online.
While the concept works, there’s just not enough detail to go any further than knowing HOW to make money, but without knowing the variables, everyone’s going to fail.
An example is creating a blog. Everyone knows that you can make money by creating a blog and adding content, right?
Even though that’s the truth, you don’t know where to start, how to choose a niche, how to rank in Google, how to find low-competition keywords, how to add affiliate links, etc.
So my final opinion is
You will not make money with 3 Step Method and you will lose $37 for something you can find on Google for free.
Free Blog Training Below
I mentioned a couple times in this review that I make money with affiliate marketing and blogging.
I choose a niche (usually about something I’m passionate about or have an interest in), create content targeting low-competition keywords, add affiliate links, and make money when my websites rank in Google.
However, this is a business at the end of the day, and just like any business, it requires work, dedication and patience.
It is not a get-rich-quick scheme and requires consistent effort.
But it’s definitely one of the best ways to make money online in my opinion, especially because you can make money around the clock when you’re fully established.
The hardest part is putting in the work in the early stages, but it’s incredibly worth it.
I hope to see you on the other side
