Philip Johansen looks and sounds like The Terminator and claims he’ll build you “a 90% automated online business” that makes you $10,000 to $30,000+, in pure profit, every single month. Since he earned $128k just last month, that should be light work, right? Well, Philip’s student, Ashley Parry, just made $57,000 in 50 days while traveling the world. Berta Raves joined and made $11,000, net profit, in six weeks. Dan Khan, a college dropout, did $43k last month.
And there’s more where that came from. Philip’s got an entire folder full of testimonials on his laptop. “So, if you want to start your own online business powered by the internet,” he says, “or take your existing business to the next level? Then pay close attention. I’m just a normal guy. I go out for meals with my family. I help my mom do housework. But there’s one thing about me that’s not normal. Every day, I wake up at least $4,000 richer. And my entire workday consists of about 60 minutes on the computer.”
“Most importantly,” Philip continues, “you can make $1,000 to $5,000 per day by just copying me. Without creating products. Without building websites. Without personally selling anything yourself. That’s how literally anyone can do it, duplicate it, and profit from it. I used to work 10 to 12 hours a day as a plumber. But I was tired of making someone else rich. I didn’t wanna work 40+ years on a low salary just to live off a tiny pension for the rest of my life. So I did something about it.”
Probably the same thing you did: started Googling ways to make money online. That led to him blowing $20 Gs he didn’t have on every course and guru coaching program he came across. For the second time in his young life, he hit rock bottom. (The first was when he turned to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain of that disgusting plumbing job.) But yeah, he burned bridges with family members he’d borrowed money from. Car got repoed. He was living in a friend’s basement. Down bad. Luckily, he still had his computer.
And, since you’re reading this, clearly Arnold Junior here figured it out, right? So what’d he do? Amazon FBA? Shopify drop shipping? Audiobooks? Running Facebook ads for local businesses? Nope. Good old-fashioned affiliate marketing. Which keeps your startup costs low. All you need is like $20 a month for automation software. And since he’s not paying for traffic, his margins are as high as 90%. Plus, he didn’t need a team, he wasn’t dependent on anyone else. For Philip, it was the perfect business model.
Find free ways to drive people to a funnel, collect commissions when they buy, repeat. Philip’s platform of choice for this free traffic? Instagram. Which may surprise you what with TikTok blowing up and all. But that’s exactly why. According to Philip, IG’s so desperate to win people back, they’ll promote your content for absolutely nothing. Pause. He knows what you’re thinking. You don’t wanna be internet famous, do you? You don’t wanna post nonstop selfies and videos and get made fun of in the comments section.
Good news: you don’t have to. You can use other people’s content. Like Philip’s. Or other celebrities. Or inspiring pictures of mansions and models and Lambos, with motivational quotes laid over the top of ’em. Again, if you can copy and paste, you can do this. Build your following, organically. Tell people to click the link in your bio, which’ll take ’em through your affiliate funnel where they’ll be sold high-ticket courses and coaching programs. It’s unclear whether these are Philip’s products or he’s an affiliate for somebody else. Either way, why’s he need you? Smells fishy to me.
