Keyword Academy Review

by Lissie

I've been a member of Keyword Academy since 2009 - 3 years later this is a REAL Keyword Academy review - the good, the bad, the weird, from a true insider.

Do you want to make a living online by owning your own business - or are you still chasing rainbows? 
Because the reality is that building a business online can make you a lot of money, provide you and your family with far more security than a job ever will, and give you a lifestyle of your dreams. But not without a lot of work, on your part. Yeah that 4-letter word - work. To be blunt a lot of people looking to make money online don't want to hear that word - they'd rather chase idiotic schemes like the Empower Network Scam - because it claims anyone can do it - without much effort. 

Making a Living Online - The Reality

I make a living online, I make less than some, more than many. At the moment I'm making around $2500/month - with low expenses. Can you make more? Of courses! Will you make this sort of money next month - no. So what's my secret - my secret is no secret - its the Keyword Academy - and yes if you click on that link I'll make a commission.

The Keyword Academy: Scam or Legit?

I joined the Keyword Academy in 2009 - I'm still a member nearly three years later, for a simple reason. Its still the best way for beginners to learn how to make money online. Has it changed over the years? Somewhat - but the basics haven't changed:

  • do keyword research
  • build websites
  • promote those websites, gain traffic from people searching in the search engines
  • make money from Adsense, affiliate sales, and/or your own products. 

Sounds simple doesn't it? In essence, yes its a simple business model, but the devil's in the detail. Not every website you develop will be a success, and you will have to do a lot of work before you see much return. This is not an online job - its your own business. Like any start-up you are not guaranteed any level of income for the first few months. 

The reality is that if you are not prepared to work hard for up to a year, without seeing much benefit - you probably don't want to enrol.

Can Anyone Make Money Online?


You weren't expecting that answer, were you? Well I'm not into the never-ending marketing hype which is so popular with the "make money online" snake-oil salesmen. The reality is - if you aren't really committed, aren't prepared to do the work, you will fail. 

They say the failure rate in Internet Marketing may be as high as 99%. Who knows, but I do know that I quit a couple of times, before I succeeded, at know others who have done similar. 

One of the traps that many people fall into is the "shiny ball syndrome" - chasing after yet another approach to making money, they chase everything - and make nothing in the process. 

They also say that most people quit Internet marketing just before they were about to succeed. 

If you haven't spent 6 to 12 months actually attempting to make money online (not just reading blogs on the subject, but actually making sites or other web pages and trying to rank them), then its too early to quit. 

The Keyword Academy is not the only way to make money online - but its good fundamental course that will teach you how to develop keyword-focused websites, and how to rank them in the organic search results. Once you can do that the online world is yours for the taking. 

What Are the Costs Involved? 

The Keyword Academy membership itself is $33/month, but the first month is free, so you can check it all out before you commit. 

You will not need to spend money on any other tools or memberships. However you will need to spend money on: - domain names (under $10/year for dot com's) - hosting - hosting starts at around $8/month. 

Later on you may want to re-invest some of your profits in outsourced writers, or backlink services, but I believe you should always be using profits for these investments, not your credit cards!

Glad you guys liked the video - it took me all day to create - but I think I will get faster doing it! One of reasons I feel very comfortable selling TKA is the 30 day free look - you really can have a look around and decide what you like, before you pay any money!

It's interesting to see the inside of something like that so thanks for the video. I couldn't justify spending money when I was starting out. I seem to have developed my own style which doesn't follow the rules!
