4 Ways To Fake And Succeed Online!

MailerLite Email Marketing for Small Business

It amazes me how people get fooled online these days. Many Internet users, especially those in the make money niche are willing to go extra miles to make money. The very sad thing is that bloggers who actually are supposed to be the most genuine and authentic Internet users are now champions in fake activities.

I want you to understand one thing – Forging or counterfeiting your way will only lead to a miserable end. You may have some instant or immediate success but the hidden truth is that the long term results will be disastrous. 

Here are 4 ways you can fake things and make us (readers) think you are very successful. You can only manage to show us these fake proofs but you won’t be able to prove the proofs. That will lead to your end.

NB: While people fake to succeed, they end up failing successfully.

4 ways to fake and succeed to fail online

1 -> Fake income proofs

This is a common thing we find on the Internet these days. People can manipulate screen shots, change figures and recompile them to look real.  Some can create fake screen shots from scratch.  With the advanced nature of Photoshop and other image processing applications, everything is almost possible.

There are many fake Paypal payment and Clickbank earnings report all over the net. If you are not wise, you’ll soon get scammed.

It doesn’t end there….

These days, it’s supper easy to generate a fake Adsense earnings screen. Just look at the image below. I used this fake Adsense Earnings Generator

fake adsense

If you are not so observant, you may think this is true. If the figures are well placed, I can assure you that many readers will get fooled.

2 – > Fake Claims

Many bloggers, especially beginners in the money making niche create blog posts on how they made X figure last month. They fabricate stories just to impress and make us think they are successful. Your lies will hunt you!

You think we are not there with you to know the truth. You think we will never know about your fake claims. Wait until time unveils its efficiency.

Some claim they are able to send 1000s of visitors to your blog per day for just $x. Just ask for their own blog or website and you’ll be shocked how they can’t even drive real traffic to theirs.

Some so-called SEO expert tell you they can push you up to Google Page #1 and position #1 in x days but the shocking irony is they ain’t even anywhere on Google pages 1 and 2. If they are so good in SEO, why not position themselves first as that’s another strong way to get clients?

3 – > Fake Testimonials

We know of the power of testimonials in marketing. People who have used a certain product simply say a positive video, audio or text statement to attest its efficacy. The effects of testimonials have pushed many into counterfeit this precious marketing force.

Fiverr has made this too bad. With just $5, you can have an almost authentic but fake video, audio or text testimonial for your product.

4 – > Fake social media base

It’s easy to have fake Twitter followers and Facebook likes these days. Just go ahead and buy them.

What’s the use having 100000 Fake Twitter followers? You may impress and attract advertisers but that will be just for a short while. We all know they won’t get any benefits from your fake followers. The next thing is they will simply move away.

NB: Here is how to make money on Twitter

Why do you fake your stats?

  1. It’s the first way to demonstrate defeat. It means you are unable to get authentic proofs fake proofspossibly because there ain’t any.
  2. Faking your stats means you are lazy. You can work hard enough to acquire genuine stats
  3. It means your product is inefficient. You don’t get buyers so you resort to faking so as to attract the ignorant buyer.
  4. You are wicket. You don’t care about others. All you want is their money.
  5. You want instant cash while building a foundation for disaster in the future.
  6. You want failure with time.

Unraveling the Fake Proofs

If your fake stats or proofs have been around for sometime now, mind you … it won’t be long on the dance floor. Your time is soon up!

There are many ways to find out you are fake. Once you the real stats are found, you’ll know from the results –

  • No more sales
  • High refunds
  • No more emails from friends
  • No more comments on your blog
  • Customers starts canceling their subscriptions
  • ETC

NB: The most common way to know if someone’s income proofs are real is to ask for a Teamvieaver working session.

Tarun Jaitely

Hi Enstine,
Nice topic to write about and I personally believe that a person who wants to be in business(blogging or anything) for long run will never use fake stats or testimonials. Because sooner or later your clients will come to know about you and your service so instead of wasting time on these things one should work on his product/service.
Like in blogging one should work on his content, branding and SEO instead on creating fake screenshots.
Thanks for sharing this post πŸ™‚

    Enstine Muki

    Very correct Tarun and I appreciate your contribution
    Hope the year has begone on a good note for you πŸ˜‰

Gaurav Parmar

Hello Enstine,
I hate them who want to make money by these all fake tricks.
Well, this article will help them how to generate fake report and all, they will like this article.
After using this trick, may they success to get money for short time but will not work for long.
Actualy i don’t like this title “4 Ways To Fake And Succeed Online!”.

    Enstine Muki

    Hey Gaurav,
    Thanks for the quick comment
    What’s your problem with the title?
    What it means is “… Ways to Fake and succeed to Fail online”
    That’s the idea as explained in the post

      Gaurav Parmar

      Yes, I know what you want to explain in this post. “4 ways to fake and succeed to fail online” is good title for this post.

      Enstine Muki @ My 10+ years experience says that fooling people , specially newbie is not big deal but those foolish tactics react similar to “Newton’s third law of motion”

Nikhil Bille

Now days most of newbie bloggers as well as some reputed bloggers also doing to grab a social media attraction.. But what they got at the end two days happiness?

I am just telling them stop this.. Work real and make money with online do not find to generate fake report. At the end only word for those peoples are “Fake”

If you work genuine then people will automatically comes with your blog visit regularly etc.. When they knows you are generating fake report then how can anybody trust on you..

I am telling you honestly.. I work in this field of blogging since last 2-3 years but I never earned four digit in adsense account in a month. I am telling only 3 digit is enough for me to live my life. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Enstine Muki

    Hey Nikhil,
    You need to have a heavily visited blog or many more niche blogs to earn a considerable figure with Adsense. It’s the slowest way to make money online I have even known especially for average blogs

    Just keep going genuine and you’ll one day hit it big

    Thanks for your contribution man

Hi Enstine,
Some people often show fake testimonials in the social network sites specially in the Facebook. We should care our visitors and they should not be used for money earning purpose only.

“While people fake to succeed, they end up failing successfully.” well said. πŸ™‚

    Hey Shoukot,
    Good to see you around and thanks for the comment πŸ˜‰

Seems everyone create their own blogs in minutes in the blog sphere and everyday people create hundreds of thousands of blogs with cheap domain name and hosting offers, scams too emerging and people intentionally or to play prank with others creating fake details and make other people to believe it.

Some people what they boasts is they’re earning 4 or 5 figures a month and creating coaching program for less bucks mentioning that they’re only creating this to help people.

So we should aware about FAKE these days and NOT to go with luck, only self experience is the best tutor.

Good day.

Thanks to the wonderful piece.

Hi Enstine,
No Facebook and no twitter account.

Wanted to say thanks for being a Positive Producer. There was a saying when I was in college…”Fake it to make it.” Certainly a wrong approach. Any field of endeavors requires, Time, Effort and planning. You are so right on when it comes to how you approach you lifes dreams. You decide how to run your life and not that of others. You control what you think, say, and do! So, stay true to yourself.
Disney said this…”teamwork makes the dream work.” 1955 opening day of DisneyLand.
Words to live by, Don’t fake it!! Be honest with others and they will respect you MORE!
Thanks Enstine.

Hey Enstine,

I must laugh after reading this post. This is because I have seen tons of fake adsense earnings popping up every now and then across the web.

I was wondering to myself, why can’t I earn this much from adsense. Not knowing that the earnings was fake.

What I did was to follow these bloggers and read their articles. This made me stick to their blog so that I could learn from them.

Doing this fake thing is wrong but it will help to create a buzz around your blog as well.

    Enstine Muki

    Hey man,
    Yes it’s helps to create a buzz but the long term effect may not be worth the effort.
    It’s good to be genuine at least for the sake of honesty πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for the contribution man

I think the fake should be “real” to get 100% success πŸ™‚

Garen

In my 5 years of doing this I have seen this time and time again. It’s actually quite sad. That is to funny; people using fake Adsense generators! I thought I have seen it all! For SEO I always tell people if they are not focusing on content marketing and not ONLY building an authority backlink profile they are wasting their time.

If someone tells you right out of the gate they are great, successful, etc. there is a good chance their not really.

    Enstine Muki

    Hey Garen,
    Happy new year man and welcome over here. Good to see you around and thanks for the comment and contribution

    May you have a wonderful year 2014

It’s as if you were muki, lots of bloggers gives out fake stats all because they believe this will drive traffic to their blogs. But the issue here is that some bloggers are been intimidated with their stupid act. Till now, i can’t unravel why people do such a thing. i know they believe they are deceiving people, but mean while they are fooling themselves.

    Enstine Muki

    You said it … they believe this will drive traffic. Yes, people get crazy when the see such posts about how one bloggers makes $$$$$ online. However, the end result of such misleading post is always failure

Arun Kallarackal

Hi Enstine,

Like you, I too believe that such dirty tactics will only bring just momentary success. And this short lived success is often followed by huge losses.

Some startling revelations you have made here, Enstine. Like showing how easy it is to generate fake AdSense revenue reports! I’ve been approached by some ‘SEO experts’ in the past, when I just started out blogging.

Thankfully, due to my goodluck, I sought advice of some kind-hearted bloggers. They ensured that I didn’t fall prey to the SEO guy’s ‘claims’ πŸ™‚ I was very tempted by his claims, Enstine. Had it not been for the timely advice, I’d have lost some money, for no purpose!

Arun

    Enstine Muki

    Hey Arun,
    Good to hear you got help that helped you out of the SEO guy’s trap. Always good to seek for a second opinion before proceeding to buying anything online

    Thanks for your visit and contribution man and do have a wonderful week

Josh May

Hey Enstine,

Great article Enstine, and I completely agree with you. Faking might get a person some short-lived success, but it will certainly NOT get them anywhere in the long term. The key to success online is sustainability — and faking things destroy’s this.

Excellent idea to write about, and I hope you’re enjoying your 2014!

    Enstine Muki

    One evil about faking is that you cannot attend a live event and share your experience. Faking is sort of trapping yourself πŸ˜‰

    On yeah the year is kicking on find for me. Thanks for asking bro πŸ˜‰

    Do have a wonderful week

Gilbert Samuel

Hi Enstine,
Nothing much to say but sometimes it makes me doubt the income of some bloggers especially the new ones. Imagine a 6 months old blog making crazy $$$ (it’s just an assumption). I mean making money from the blog alone and not from other means of monetization. they might be saying the truth though but trust is something that mustn’t be disregarded.

    Enstine Muki

    Hey Gilbert,
    I think you are right.
    I think live events are good grounds to to disprove such claims. You may never see such bloggers live somewhere because they surely don’t have meat to add to their bones

    Thanks for the contribution bro

Kingsley

Interesting that this is your next post after your last post saying how you made $29,000 in your first year. I shared that post on Kingged.com and one of the comments got was about this exact “faked or not faked issue”.

Here’s the comment:

“I just don’t believe this one bit to make this money in first year online. Where is the proof of this? anyone can talk what they want and easy to lie, where’s proof?

Too many lying about online earning these days, what if this is a lie too? I just don’t believe.”

And I responded with:

“Thanks for your comment, Meagan.

You have all the rights in the world to question such earning claims. And yes, you are very correct that lots of people lie nowadays about their earnings.

But the truth also is that there are truly people making really good money online. Do you know how much I made online last year within just couple of weeks? Big money! So, it’s not rocket science really. It’s just knowing the right things to do and actually doing them.

Talking about proof – if you are asking of screenshots of earning proof, that can be faked nowadays, even videos can be faked, so the real liars out there will always provide you with fake proofs.

So, the thing is – money can be made online. And yes, real money IS made online.

Whether people like Enstine are saying the truth or not is not what is important. What is important with such posts is to show you that money IS indeed made online.

And if they can do it, you can do it too!

And if you think $29,000 per year is such a big deal, think again. It can be the truth… nothing extreme about that. Again, the idea with such posts is to show you what is possible online, to encourage you to strive for same, or even better results. ”

That said, my take on fake bloggers or not is this – whether others are faking/lying or not, real money can be made and is made online. Make yours, πŸ™‚

    Enstine Muki

    Hey man,
    You know I linked that $29k post to another post on emfastincome where I gave details and broke down the earnings. Maybe this commenter needed to see that post πŸ˜‰

    However, thanks for the wise reply. I sure will be over there are kingged to add more to it

    Do have a wonderful week

      Kingsley

      Thanks for your reply, Enstine, and thanks for responding to the comment over at Kingged.

      I have included the direct link to the Emfastincome article for her and others who want to see exactly how.

      Like I said on my follow-up comment on Kingged, the problem is that many people are so immune to the many fake income claims/reports that they doubt even the genuine ones.

      Anyway, to each his own. Thanks for the post and for your response.

Cole Wiebe

Hi Enstine,

Thanks for this post. Some of the most valuable information I’ve ever come across was purchased online from reputable information product developers. I’ve also been burned by fakes and it still upsets me whenever I think about it. It’s made me far more suspicious of online claims and I’m sure I’ve missed out on some great information as a result. I believe that if buyers of crappy online products demand refunds, and take the time to warn others, fewer scammers will be around looking for an easy buck.

Wishing you a very prosperous and memorable 2014,

Cole

    Enstine Muki

    Hey Cole πŸ˜‰
    Sorry to hear you were bitten in the past. Well, that has made you wiser than many others who still spend time on such inflated crappy copies

    I hope 2014 will be good year for you so you don’t waste your money anymore

Obasi Miracle

Hello Enstine,

I particularly agree with the part were you suggest they will fail in the long run.

I am personally annoyed by most of the reviews done by bloggers this days, from all angles, you will notice that they are sponsored by the owners of those products.

One can hardly see reality about a product or services by reviews done by most newbie bloggers of today.

One thing I do so well is; to bookmark and visit genuine bloggers once in a while, while also ignoring or rebuking the fake ones.

Thanks for sharing and do have a great day too.

    Enstine Muki

    Thanks for your sincere opinion Obasi and sorry for the late reply to your comment πŸ˜‰

Ashley Faulkes

Hey Enstine
Sad but true huh! So many people are out to impress that they will do anything to achieve it. I often wonder when I read many people’s claims about things like adsense if they are true. And now that I have seen how easily you can fake such a page, I know most of them are not.
However, I guess the key is not to not believe everything you read, especially when they tell you how easy it is to make money online! It is not. Full stop.
have a great weekend (soon)

Great Post Enstine.
I have seen a lot of bloggers and Internet marketers who engage is such fraudulent activities. When I smell a scam in a blog post or sales pitch, I just close my web browser and move on to better things.
Fake proofs works for a while, and believe me, the aftermath is not usually good; once people know you as a fake person, it becomes so damn difficult for you to sell anything online.
I just hope the fake guys out there will change before its too late.

    Enstine Muki

    Hey bro,
    Thanks for the visit and comment. Better be real and take time to grow than try to fake quick growth which evidently will fetch long run disaster

The first one shared “Fake income proofs” is terribly scattered on the internet. Often times, their proofs have been somewhat interesting, but good thing some are wise and keen. They are like fishermen with fake worm on their hook.

I found this post shared on Kingged.com, the Internet marketing social networking site, and I “kingged” it and left this comment.

    Enstine Muki

    Hey Metz,

Enstine, Its amazing how people can not see that you only make money by bringing value to the market place. I think I will share with my readers, how to make money if you have never made ANY money online. I will be sharing the experience of my first sale.

    Enstine Muki

    I’ll be glad to read that post. Keeping an eye on your blog πŸ˜‰

Efoghor Joseph Ezie

You just said it all. Anything fake is fake and can never fool all the people all the times. Whatever is fake only lasts for a transient time, it surely gets discovered in no distant time.

Sometimes you visit some forums or Facebook groups, you hear people bragging about their earnings. This pushes the less successful ones into faking their results in order not to look inferior or unsuccessful. They forget that once they claim they are successful, they have set a limit before themselves because it becomes difficult to ask for a help when stuck in the future.

I have seen people display fake Google PR and later start begging to be helped to get a better PR. I have also heard those who earlier claimed they were making money now asking to be shown how to make money. It’s better to always be yourself so that when the real testimony comes you would be bold to share it.

Thanks Enstine for this important topic. Do have a great weekend.

    Enstine Muki

    Your last paragraph triggers a huge dose of laughter πŸ˜‰ People get themselves trapped by their fake claims

I didn’t know there were sites that generate such fake adsense reports. I always wonder when encountering earning reports in posts how people are earning so much. Thanks to you and your article, now every time I read blog posts, I shall be analyzing the report whether that can be true or fake.

    Enstine Muki

I’m shocked to learn people take these steps to deceive. πŸ™‚ You make a great point Enstine, where is the proof from the people pushing this crap. It’s not to be found.

How many people that are genuinely making tens of thousands of dollars per month would have the interest to teach others for $97. It doesn’t make sense. They’re selling you the dream. Rarely will you find someone that is killing providing such valuable information at a small charge.

Hi Enstine Muki,
Thanks for sharing such valuable information. Actually that tool is developed by me to have fun for bloggers. I placed date of July 2013 month, on unpaid earning and last paid. So that the date can make it easily to find out if report is fake or true.

By the way, thanks for including that on your blog.

Being fake has become very common in blogging. There are lots of bloggers and companies who says that they are the best in SEO or Web designing and the funny part is that they are having proofs too. But they must understand today generation is far intelligent than them.

pro

fake bloggers always do fake click on absence and get inorganic traffic with adult techniques and more

Benny

Once you tell a lie, you must have another ready made lie to cover up the first lie, and so the circle grows. Any blog built with false reputation will always have fake content on fake visitors, What happened to ‘Content is King’ No need to lie and be impressive because return visitors will justify the worth of a blog. Nice Blog Enstine, i am glad you are not F.A.K.E.
