Plug In Profit Site Review
Is Plug In Profit Site A Scam?
Starting a internet business can be tricky, especially if you are new to online or affiliate marketing. With unemployment on the rise and more families needing a second income a lot of stay at home moms and recently unemployed are turning to the internet to try and make ends meet. Be cautious though as you try to navigate your way through this jungle I call the internet.
You will soon see if you haven’t already exactly what I mean. Try typing a few key words into your search engine such as make money online you will see very quickly how many websites are out there looking to get you to join a so called pathway to wealth and prosperity. I urge you to proceed with caution. I cant stress enough that there is no such thing as getting rich quick. I’m sorry to burst your bubble but that is not how online marketing works.
One website that is online using such keywords as making money online or how to make money online are a bunch of duplicated websites designed by Stone Evans and his Plug In Profit Site. If you are new to affiliate marketing this guy will suck you in and slowly nickel and dime you to broke. This is one of the programs that enticed me a few years back when I first began looking at how to work from home. So lets look at this system and see if it really works..
I have revised my review of Plug In Profit Site for 2019 Because Stone Evens has revised some of the companies he promotes, so in keeping up with the times here is a look at the new PIPS. I would also like to point out that one of the major systems he promoted at the original writing of this review is not only gone but banned from operating in the United States shortly after my original Review. This company was called Empower Network and if you haven’t heard of them consider yourself lucky.
Name: Plug In Profit Site
Website url: www.pluginprofitsite.com
Price: Free? ( you are told to sign up for 5 different affiliate programs)
Owners Name: Stone Evans
Overall Rank: 10 out of 100
Scam: (Borderline but definitely a misleading SCHEME)
Plug In Profit Site Overview
As a former affiliate I feel I am able to give you a complete accurate review of this system. Stone Evens does offer to build you a free website. I must tell you these websites are all duplicated and they just don’t rank on Google This is why they use Google Alerts and traffic exchanges. When its your turn Stone Evens will promote your duplicated site that has little room for uniqueness at one of these places. You can move up on the list if you pay.
I will say that traffic exchanges are a breeding ground for scams and the ones he promoted a few years ago are also not a part of the new PIPS. In Fact Only 2 of the affiliate programs he promoted with the original Plug In Profit Site are still part of his recommendations which are SFI (Strong Futures International and GDI (Global Domains International)
You will also be encouraged to join 5 different affiliate programs. Only one of these programs is free to my knowledge. Four of these programs have been excluded from the new PIPS site. This raises some issues with me like What went wrong with the other four programs you were promoting 3 years ago in 2011? one of the new programs Stone is promoting on his website in 2014 is the Empower network which is worthy of a whole review in itself. I will review Empower in a future post soon.
Update: As of this moment EP is no longer and was banned from operating in the US In 2015 (Today’s Date 06/17/2019)
Many of these programs you are encouraged to join charge a monthly fee. So if you do not start making money immediately you will be paying out of pocket until you do or IF YOU DO. I honestly don’t think a newbie in this industry will be able to do that with the outdated training within this system. You will definitely need to be a experienced marketer to make this program work.
Plug In Profit Site In 2019
Stone Evens hasn’t really changed much at all with the exception of the affiliate programs he promotes. He is even still using the same High School picture of himself from his 2011 PIPS Capture page. Basically it works the same.
Stone will build you one of his duplicated cookie cutter websites for free and encourage you to enroll in 5 different programs by clicking on his affiliate links which he conveniently places in each recommendation.
After joining through him you will be asked to place your own new affiliate links on the website he makes for you which basically promotes his very own PIPS along with the 5 programs he tells you to join. Don’t worry about joining all of them though because Stone will just keep his links in your place.
My problem with this entire platform is the use of the duplicated websites with very little room for adding unique content. Duplicated sites just don’t rank well on search engines.
Any experienced affiliate marketer will tell you that in order to rank well you have to provide unique and helpful content. Stone knows this too, he is one of the top affiliate marketers in the world and he absolutely knows this. The only problem is, he’s not going to tell you that because then he loses money.
I’ve even gone as far as to join again just to see if anything has changed in the platform to give the most up to date and accurate review possible but all i found was different affiliate programs being promoted.
PIPS was one of the first platforms that took me over the coals back in 2011 so keeping this review current is important to me and it will save you a lot of time, money and heartache too. I reviewed him again in 2014 and now in 2019 so rest assure I’m keeping a close eye on this guy and his scheme. Read more about my journey on my about me page.

Who is Plug In Profit Site For??
This system would be best for a person already making money online that has some experience in affiliate marketing and can drive a lot of traffic to the website. Newbies will have a hard time trying to make this work.
PIPS (Plug In Profit Site) Support
Support is offered through the training provided. There is a contact page but from my experience if I ever had a question it was answered through a automated email which usually referred me back to a page in the training. I never had a personal email answered by the owner of this company when submitting a concern which to me tells me once they had my money I wasn’t even worth a personal response.
My Final Opinion
Is Plug In Profit Site A Scam? I Say No because you do get a product but I will call it a Scheme, If you are new to online marketing you are going to have a hard time making this work. The training is outdated and you will need to have quite a bit of experience and already know how to work from home to have any chance of making this work.
