If you have done research on most internet marketing products, you have probably come across a website called NoBSIMReviews ran by a guy called Mark.
It is a review site that focuses on products and programs on how to make money online and you may have been wondering whether NoBSIMReviews is legit and whether you can trust Mark. After all, the world of internet marketing is quite murky and it can be hard to tell who is genuine.
In this review, I’m going to break down what NoBSIMReviews.com is all about and whether it is a legit site that can be trusted.
NoBSIMReviews is a review site that does reviews of programs that teach people how to make money online. It also reviews finance gurus who show people how to make money in the stock market.
Most of what Mark does is try to decipher whether various ways of making money either online or the stock market are as genuine as they are presented.
When the site was started, the focus was mostly on internet marketing products as the name of the site suggests: “No BS IM Reviews” where the IM there stands for internet marketing.
Mark started the site in 2016 to review various business opportunities and by January 2017 he was already getting thousands of visitors a month.
In 2017, he examined hundreds of products and systems giving his readers a breakdown of what they did and whether they were to be trusted. Since the world of internet marketing is full of online scams, people are always looking for someone who will provide honest reviews and they felt that they were getting that from NoBSIMReviews.
As the site grew, he diversified and started looking at investing programs and financial newsletter gurus. These are the kind of programs where a guru promises to offer generalized investment advice to their followers at a fee.
These services have grown popular now that a lot of people have turned to the capital markets to invest their cash rather than hold on to it.
Along the way, having reviewed hundreds of internet marketing products, Mark partnered with one product that he believed would be the best for anyone looking to make money online. This came after he had tested a lot of products and seen just how bad it can get when you have no idea how the industry works.
The product he backed was the one he felt offered actionable training and a genuine chance at earning an online income.
NoBSIMReviews has covered many topics over the years but the underlying theme is that anything he covers will have something to do with making money (mostly online).
There is the occasional post focusing on online celebrities like the Tate brothers (Andrew and Tristan), KSI and Deji, Logan and Jake Paul and how they make money as well as others that walk you through how the world’s richest people like Bernard Arnault and Steve Cohen accumulated their net worth.
I’ve also seen after reading hundreds of articles that Mark writes extensively about the finance and investment niche where he has reviewed finance gurus talking about investment opportunities in the stock market, cryptocurrencies, and precious metals. For example, he recently did a review of Nomi Prins’ liquid energy stock that sheds light on that investment opportunity. Nomi Prins is a financial guru who is quite popular amongst contrarian investors.
There are also hundreds of articles about well known multi-level marketing opportunities. MLMs are always a grey area for most people because some people think that they work if you put in the effort and others that think that they are legal scams.
I think Mark offers a relatively balanced take on most of them leaving you to decide where you fall. From what I’ve seen in most of those articles, he seeks to inform you how they work and I saw that quite a bit, whether he is reviewing online programs or finance gurus.
Mark is the man behind NoBSIMReviews. From what we know, he is in his twenties and he’s been making a full time income online since 2010. He has an interesting story of how he got started in the world of online marketing and the struggles he faced.
He worked in an office job right after leaving school. He was an apprentice at an engineering company and in his own words, he hated going to work every day. He found his job to be boring and he decided to find a way out.
He decided that the only way to do that would be to make money online. That was in 2007.
Since he was entirely new to the online market, he wrongly trusted fraudulent programs and lost money. At one time, he claims to have spent nearly all of his salary on an opportunity that wound up being a big scam.
He didn’t let that dishearten him and in the years that followed, he tried a bunch of things. He got into internet marketing, network marketing, blogging, forex trading, and even eBay.
Then he discovered freelancing and started picking up small jobs on sites like freelancer.com. He started making money doing article writing and noticed a big demand for SEO jobs.
Search engine optimization is the process of optimizing your website for Google so that it ranks higher. It is quite prevalent online and Mark learned about it. When he was confident that he could provide the services demanded, he started bidding for SEO jobs and got them.
After doing these jobs a few months, he decided to quit his job and do them full time. This was an easy decision for him because he did not like his job. He focused his efforts on SEO services.
He ranked his website for a number of SEO related keywords like SEO Company and SEO Consultant and attracted a number of clients. He was making around £2000 to £2500 per month and at the time, that to him felt like a large amount of money.
However he kept an eye on the internet marketing niche and knew that what he was making was pocket change compared to some internet marketers (owning personal websites) who were making 5 and even 6-figures online.
Then he got fed up of having clients because he felt that it’s not really much different to having a boss. By the start of 2012 he got rid of all his clients and focused his efforts on blogging and SEO.
He decided that rather than ranking other people’s websites, he would instead focus on ranking his own websites and make money that way. He started reviewing products and between January 2012 and April 2012 and soon, he was making good money.
He made around $5,000 per month on affiliate marketing product launches but he felt like that business model was not sustainable. He tried out a few things and in February 2014 he made 5-figures in one month. He had multiple 6-figure-months over the next year all from his online business.
He even became the no.1 producer in the network marketing company he was working with and held the position for around 6 months. It allowed him to save up enough money to buy his dream car; a Porsche 911.
He continued to grow his income and even bought his partner a Mini as her first car and was able to put together enough money to buy his first home and pay for their dream wedding. He says that it felt good that he was able to make money and live a lifestyle that most people only dream of thanks to his online business.
He launched NoBSIMReviews in November 2016 with the goal of reviewing business opportunities.
From what I’ve seen going through the website, NoBSIMReviews.com is a legitimate review site. The website mainly focuses on the finance and investment niche as well as the business opportunity niche.
As I write this, the site has hundreds of reviews going back six years and over that time frame, you can tell that Mark knows the internet marketing industry quite well (and, his experience goes back beyond that).
A lot of websites he has reviewed are scams and he alerts the reader to them but when they are legit, he points that out too. The reviews are fairly informative and you can then decide whether the online opportunities to earn passive income are worth it or not.
I think you can trust NoBSIMReviews when it comes to reviews of internet marketing opportunities and financial gurus. His goal in doing those reviews is to protect consumers from unscrupulous characters.
Many people have a dream of quitting their regular jobs and running their own online business or online shops from home. The allure of earning passive income and living a life of financial freedom has become popular, particularly after the covid-19 pandemic that saw people lose their physical businesses and office jobs.
But to make money online you need to find someone who is already having success so that you can model them. Then you need a reliable system, software tools, and a reliable mentor; this is someone who can show you the exact steps you should take to have success.
If you venture online, you will find thousands of programs promising you exactly that. But unfortunately, they are not all to be trusted and that’s where a guy like Mark comes in. He has been in amongst those businesses for long enough to separate the good businesses from the bad ones.
More than a decade’s experience counts for something even in an industry that changes as rapidly as the online marketing industry.
