MOBE or otherwise know as My Online Business Empire is essentially an online Multi Level Marketing Program.
The name suggests that you will building your own online business ’empire’. But let’s see just how true that is.
Unfortunately, MOBE hasn’t got a very good reputation as a reputable business. Let’s see if that’s true and find out a bit more about ‘what is MOBE about?’
Company Name: MOBE or My Online Business Empire
Website url: https://mobe.com/
Cost: $49 per money plus $19 per month plus A LOT of upsells.
My Ranking: 0.5 out of 5 stars
What is MOBE about and how does it work?
This program is all about online business (very generally) and provides training courses on how to improve your online business.
This includes a whole range of single products such as training products and email marketing engines.
To be honest, it is not clear when you sign up just exactly what MOBE is about! If you are expecting to buy the 21 step program to internet success, it’s not that straightforward! You have to buy each product included in the ‘training’ before you can sell it. And the program is PACKED full of upsells.
So you join the program for $49 a month expecting to get started, but you are not even close..
Once you join there is a whole host of additional products that you need to buy in order, ‘to really be a success in this business’! And each of these comes at a hefty price tag.
The aim is that you promote MOBE, the training products, so you are learning how to promote what you are learning about, if that makes sense.
Who is it for?
Well anyone, but I would say it’s for anyone with no ethics and the ability to hard sell. Someone who doesn’t mind scamming people for a product that is completely overpriced. You might think I am being too harsh from the off on this article, but this scheme has the ability to really get my goat! I actually can’t believe it’s still operating!
So I want to give you as much information as possible to get you to see what I have seen.
There are honest and legitimate ways to earn money online, you don’t need to scam people into buying from you to make money
How much does it cost?
If only the $49 a month were it. Sadly not!
There is more. This cost is just for the privilege of joining.
Next you HAVE to buy the following to proceed. This is not mentioned at the outset otherwise numerous people would be put off. You have to have signed up and be, let’s say, brainwashed into buying these packages, which is why its not mentioned.
So you are REQUIRED to buy these if you want to succeed: Hold onto your hats and your wallets. To be honest, I’m shocked anyone has ever bought into this! To the right is the lovely Matt Lloyd.
You have to buy the MOBE license rights program in order to promote the ‘products’ to others. So this is a bargain $1997 (This price has gone up recently, so expect to pay more)! For a license!. This is the cost of the FULL MOBE license rights program. You do get some training with this including:
- MOBE licensee course
- MOBE overview training which lasts for 8 hours
- A proposal to follow (17 hours of training)
- Affiliate bonus (11 hours of training)
- OPT formula (14 hours of training)
The main thing with MOBE is that you have to purchase the products before you can sell them to anyone else.
It is this feature that makes them an MLM company. And it’s the quality of the products which push them closer and closer to becoming an illegal pyramid scheme. (if the quality of the products mean that you can’t make money JUST from selling those, then it’s a pyramid scheme.. which is illegal in most western countries).
- So back to the products, you will get a 90% commission rate off the following if you sell them on.
- Inner Circle Membership $97 per month
- MOBE Elite Earners $97 per month
- Done For You Emails $97 per month
- My Email Marketing Empire $194 one off cost
- OPT Formula (Outsourcing Formula) $194 one off cost
- Affiliate Bonus Domination $291 one off cost
- Funded Proposal $194 one off cost
- IM Revolution Handbook $9.95
Plus these are some of the products that you will earn 50% commission with
- 10,000 Leads in 100 Days $1997
- Online Income Revolution $997
- The 90 Day Challenge $997
- Six Figure Coaching Secrets $997
- Add the Nitrous $997
- Diamond Coaching Program ($1,200 commission) $4,997
- Titanium Mastermind $8,997
So let’s just work that out.. If you wanted to sell all these products you would have to pay well over $20K! plus over $300 a month I’m sorry, that’s shocking! Anyone have that lying around?
In addition, they ask that you attend all sorts of conferences and travel, and none of this is at their expense. Imagine how that can add up!
The main support channel for MOBE is Facebook.
When you pay this sort of money you would expect your own personal advisor would you not? But here there isn’t even a specialist channel or community just for the members. Just a free social media group which you can set up for absolutely ANYTHING. Hmm, this shows complete lack of interest in its members as far as I am concerned.
And there is no technical support should you have any problems. There are many online businesses out there which have these two features as standard, and I can tell you they are essential to successful business, especially when working from home. Here’s an example called Wealthy Affiliate which has all those things but teaches you how to build a true ethical online business.
The MOBE MTTB Scam
What is the MTTB Program? Another Acronym which stands for My Top Tier Business Program which is essentially the program that you start off on within MOBE, the introduction to the business.
So what is the MOBE MTTB Scam? A bit harsh to start off calling this program a scam maybe, but I’ll show you what I mean.
This MTTB program is based off a promise. Matt Lloyd (the owner of MOBE) says that he is so confident with his program that he will give you $500 if you don’t make a commission within 30 days. Wow! BUT you must follow all 21 steps of the program and you must do them in the day they are given to you.. you must do them in order and miss nothing or you will not be eligible for the guarantee.
So there must be more:
When you get about a third of the way through the steps a pop up appears saying you have to pay $1997 to complete the training! And this cuts you out of the access. By the time you have paid the $2K you won’t have time to finish all the steps that day so the guarantee is nullified. Completely outrageous!! So the MOBE MTTB Scam is just that: A complete scam
The benefits of MOBE
- You do get some training, although it is marginal in quality. Some of it is beneficial
- You can get high commissions
The drawbacks off MOBE
- The upsells are the real drawback here. They are ludicrous. And expensive
- The products are massively overpriced, so really hard to sell
- You are only buying products to sell them, not to learn from them
- You have to have a lot of money upfront to carry on and be able to afford quite a large monthly payment
- It’s easy to see how someone can be sucked into buying more and more, just another program to sell
- There is no actual business model, you are just recruiting people to buy the same thing as you
- There is no technical support to help you with problems
- Highly unethical, so you have to be conformable with this.
MOBE is an illegal pyramid scheme or at least as close as it’s going to get.
But it gets away with operating as it isn’t based in the US or the UK. The owner, Matt Lloyd is in Australia, but the main office is in Malaysia. Interesting huh, I wonder why! With a Pyramid scheme the illegality is the fact that the product itself isn’t worth selling and that you have to buy the product to promote it. The more you buy, the more you can promote. You cannot sell the products on their own without buying more and more. Run a mile, PLEASE! Or your bank manager will be chasing you!
It’s infuriating and crazy that this kind of business can still be operating. I hope I have helped you to make a decision on this business if it was something you were considering!
So what now?
So perhaps you thought you found something that could help you make money online. And I have no doubt that you are feeling disappointed now. To be honest, I hope I helped you have a lucky escape.
