Because we live in a world where the internet allows freedom of speech, people can say whatever they want, and unfortunately, most of the time what people say is completely untrue.
Take this for example. If you check out Ewen Chia on Google, you will see that a lot of people have written bad stuff about him. Hi, my name is Peter, and I’ve had the privilege of knowing Ewen Chia personally. In fact, I’ve worked with him for a long time. You might think I’m just trying to defend my long time friend here by saying what they are writing is false. However I want you to see a deeper pattern that’s going on among the very people who are disparaging Ewen.
Here’s what I’ve noticed.
- The things they write about him and my products are fake
I know this is subjective. You may not believe this. So let me proceed straight to the next point.
- They promote their own offers
If you actually read to the end of the reviews, you will see that these people are promoting their own offers. Not just any offer though. I’ve noticed that most, if not all of them, are promoting Wealthy Affiliate. Which brings me to my next point.
- Ewen is not the only guy they’re writing bad stuff about
I browsed through the websites of these people who wrote bad stuff about Ewen and I saw that Ewen is not the only guy who’s been a victim of fake negative reviews. In fact, I see a lot of credible internet marketers as well getting their heat.
- They’re clearly riding on his name to get attention
The name Ewen Chia gets a lot of traffic on the internet. So what’s an easy way to get traffic? Leverage on somebody’s fame. They’re basically leveraging on his name to get views on their website, where they in turn disparage him in hopes to win over their readers to join their own program (Wealthy Affiliate for most of them).
Is this something Wealthy Affiliate is teaching their students to do? To write bad stuff about internet marketers just to get downlines for themselves?
At the end of the day, it is the owners of Wealthy Affiliate who really benefit from this strategy. Because so many of their members are writing negative reviews about so many marketers, and every day, people are being won over to join Wealthy Affiliate while avoiding credible internet marketers who teach ethical strategies to generating revenue on the internet. I don’t know what you think of it. I am disgusted by how people can do this with a clear conscience. At the end of the day, there is still freedom of speech on the internet. As the general consumer, I hope you do not get fooled by everything you read on the internet, because not everything you’ll find is true.
