Let me begin by stating that I did see this offer before, and, I passed on it then. What was enticing this time was that I trusted the person who was referring it – again. I thought he would give it an honest look, and relay the pros and cons. But, apparently, that was not the case. So, yes, I am a bit disappointed. But, the good thing is that since I do “reviews,” I get to share my experiences with you, my readers! So, here is my Review of Global MoneyLine – including the Pros and Cons!

Global MoneyLine is a site that is building one major bad-ass email list. And, for those of you who are new to Internet and Affiliate Marketing, there is a very good reason why people really should build their lists. I don’t want to get too off-topic, but let’s just say building an email list is a good thing no matter if you’re just starting out, if you have a brick and mortar business, if you’re building a blog, or if you’re well into Internet and Affiliate Marketing. Building an e-mail list of your visitors and regular readers is a good thing. It provides those who do to be able to contact their list as often as they’d like: to build rapport, to offer specials, deals, coupons, etc., and to just keep in touch with loyal readers – plain and simple.
Ok, with that stated, we have a company offering here that claims to “Build your list FOR YOU.” It talks about “list building” in the same realm as those who actually do build lists, actual physical (digital file) lists, and nothing could be further than the truth. The deception is even in the banner ads they provide to affiliates (see the square ad above) which clearly states “List building the easy way.”
The major problem, for me anyway, is that it’s deceiving people into thinking that they will have recurring access to said list even if they remain a Free member.
Pros & Cons:
I had joined MoneyLine on Nov. 13th of this year. I remained a “Free” member for a little while, and by the time I paid the initial Bronze (one time) fee, the $20.00, I had somewhere around just over 12,000 people “below” me. I wanted to see, for myself, what would happen when I did use “my list” to share an offer.
Now, please keep in mind, that this “one-line” list of people being built are those who are either online already, or want to learn how to make money from home and online. So, this list of people “below” you, are interested in that “make money online” niche. Ok, with that stated, it is “safe” to assume that all those “above” you, those who joined before you, will be soliciting their offerings to you – seeing that you are “below” them on the MoneyLine.
Well, Ok, I decided that I was going to offer “my list” an opportunity that was not related to make money online niche. I purposely wanted to share the post because, after all, Christmas is coming, and what parent, grandparent, or “favorite” relative doesn’t have kids in their immediate circle who needs to know more about the 25 Hottest Selling Toys for 2016! (Yes, that’s a shameless plug!)
So, because I was “only” a Bronze member, I sat there and clicked through all 12,000 people, which was actually somehow reduced to only 9,000 plus people, and I did so 20 at a time. I sent them all the same link to my DayGiftsOnline.com blog post to share my fabulous toy list.
At this point, I would categorize this as a “leads” system, not a list.
When I got to the end of “my list,” guess what happened? …Nothing… absolutely nothing. It did not “replenish” and/or “refill” back to my original number of over 12,000 people. In fact, it began accruing again – from zero. And, that’s when I was more sure about the misleading statement being made: “Build a list the easy way.”
This is NOT list building. An actual e-mail list is an asset for your business because it offers you the opportunity to re-contact your list again and again. Here, or rather, with this “opportunity,” you are not building an asset for “your” business simply because you have no way to use it again. You are never given the actual email addresses of your “downline.” Therefore, you do not have a list. The only person who has “the list,” is the admin/owner of MoneyLine, which, I’m guessing, will have quite the lucrative email list to re-contact us with other opportunities in the future…
As a result of my offering, I received about four responses from other MoneyLine members. One asked “what are you selling?” …which I found comical, and the other three really didn’t say too much other than “thanks.” So, let’s do some math!
Out of approximately 9000 people, I received 4 responses. That’s a .000444 Click Through Rate (CTR). …not so good – that much I can tell you for sure.
Now, you may be saying that it “should have” been a relevant offer. And, yes, you’re right – the offer was NOT relevant to the target audience. But seriously? Who wouldn’t be at least a little bit curious about even just looking at a list of 25 Hottest Selling Toys if you have little ones in your life? …out of over 9000 people??? I expected more to “just look” at the list. I do not think that’s being unreasonable, so, in my opinion, a .0004444 CTR is a “total fail.”
Ok, ok… for those of you who are insisting that it should have been relevant in order to provide a “fair and balanced” review, here’s what I’ll do. I’ll try again and update this post at some point in the future. Here’s my “new” offer, and how I’ll share it on MoneyLine. I’ll create a special link to this post, the one you’re reading here, and I will only share this special link on MoneyLine. This special link will provide me with actual stats about how many people on my “downline” actually click on “that” specific link. So, while my “new” MoneyLine regrows, I will share this specific link to those new people via my membership with MoneyLine.
This will provide traffic to my post, yes, but it will also serve to educate people before they buy further into MoneyLine.
Obviously, one concern is that this little experiment may not last long. I have no idea if the admin / owner of MoneyLine will ever read my blog and retaliate in some way. I suppose my membership can be “turned off.” But, that’s OK. I’ll take that risk. For now, I am a member of MoneyLine. I do have my Affiliate link up, and hey, people “could” join using my links. This is why I’ve rated this a 6 out of 10. This may generate money for me, and then again, it may not. But, at least I know I’m not deceiving people without telling them the truth about MoneyLine – what it is, and what it’s not.
The Bottom Line:
A Free membership to MoneyLine IS NOT list building – for you. It allows you a one-time access to like-minded leads, but as a Free member, you will never acquire the actual email addresses of those Free or Paid members who have joined after you.
However, with that stated, there is one little way to obtain and actually build an email list if you share MoneyLine as an Affiliate. For those who do join and wish to become paid members and Affiliates promoting MoneyLine, you will have the opportunity to obtain member’s e-mail addresses when they send a PayPal payment direct to you. It’s an indirect way, but at least it can be done.
How To Build A List “USING” MoneyLine:
Once you become an Independent Referrer, and, after you make three sales, you WILL have the opportunity to capture email addresses of those who become Paid members. Granted, it will be one by one, and you will have to enter these addresses into a “real” email list builder, but at least there is “some” way to actually build a physical digital list.
So, for me, in case you’re wondering, yes, I will add any referrals who become paid members to my “make money online” list. That’s one of my actual lists that I’m building for my business. The other list, of course, is just the list of readers who want to receive the newsletter notifying them that there is a new article post to this blog. You probably saw the pop-up by now actively inviting you to join my blog email list, and for those who want “Money Making Opportunities,” you can join that specific list using ad box on the right. Look for the White and Pink Envelope SendLane Logo —>>> (I hope you joined both!)
WHO IT IS FOR:
Well, for the timid or newbies, please know that the initial offer is NOT list building. For Free members, you’ll have “one-time access” only to those who join under you, and you can contact them one by one. If you want to build a list using MoneyLine, you MUST be a paid member and you must be willing to promote MoneyLine to others who are interested in the Make Money Online niche. This is the only way they will be sharing their actual Paypal e-mail address with you.
As mentioned, there are various levels, and each level controls how many people you can contact at a time.
For instance, a
- Bronze member can contact 20 people at a time.
- A Silver can contact 50 at a time
- A Gold can contact 100 at a time
- A Platinum can contact 250 people at a time…
So, there is an opportunity cost in terms of “your time.” What’s your time worth? Do you have other things you could be doing instead of contacting people one at a time? Twenty at a time? …If you visit your MoneyLine on a daily basis, the amount of newly joined members is manageable enough even if you remained a Bronze member. So, no biggie really, at least until the rate of joiners speeds up – then it may become an issue.
TRAINING / TOOLS OVERVIEW
Well, there are videos which go over what this is all about and how you can use it. As mentioned, it did not answer the question in my head about how many times you can actually access that same downline list. I found it was “once,” but they do not blatantly tell you that little detail in the videos I watched.
I saw a support email, but I have not used it as yet. MoneyLine does mention that you can contact your referrer, and he or she should be able to help you out further if you should ever need help.
- Bronze $20 (One Time Fee – goes to “your referrer”)
- Silver $50 (Annual Cost)
- Gold $100 (Annual Cost)
- Platinum $250 (Annual Cost)
- Diamond (Coming Soon….)
For those who may be new to all of this, just please educate yourself first before purchasing anything. You may not have a problem spending $20 or more for membership, but some may. I wrote this Review to help you make a more informed decision. In order to actually build a list “using” (not “with”) MoneyLine, you MUST be a paid member as that is the only way people will be sharing their actual e-mail addresses with you. Otherwise, if you remain a Free member, all contact is done through the MoneyLine system, and you cannot (directly or indirectly) obtain an email address in this way.
So, if you have no problem becoming an Affiliate in the Make Money Online Niche, hey, go for it! Join and share your links daily! Share them in Social Media, Blogs, your own (real) email list, and anyway you want – really. You could be earning the amount equal to your membership every time someone joins as a paid member. Just know that MoneyLine is NOT building a list “for you.” There’s a difference. There is no list linked to your account, and no server space or hosting abilities provided to you to build and keep a list. But, for those who now know, and understand the difference, you can capture email addresses when those you invite do become paid members.
In fact, this opportunity can be quite lucrative if you become an active Affiliate and actively share your link.
Join for Free – Sure – “Get In Line!” Just be aware of what you are actually purchasing, and what you actually get, if you wish to join a higher membership level. Just know that there are ways to actually Build Your Real E-Mail List, and you can re-contact your list again and again in the future.
