I’ve been getting spam emails from someone named Bryan Winters for quite some time.

So today, I actually decided to open one to see just what exactly he was selling.

And after clicking through, I ended up on a website pitching something called the Moola Vine system.

The sales video said that Moola Vine could make you up to $300 per day in ‘effortless commissions’ using something called ‘reverse affiliate marketing’.

I was pretty sceptical, but I decided to open up a free account to find out what was really going on.

And as I’m about to reveal in this honest Moola Vine review…

Whilst Moola Vine isn’t quite the massive scam that I was expecting, I don’t think that you’re going to be making much money with it either.

Here’s why.

What is Moola Vine?

Moola Vine is basically an affiliate marketing system that operates on the ‘chain-based’ recruitment model.

The idea is that you make money when you recruit someone into your ‘vine’ and they then purchase products from you via your affiliate link.

That person then makes money when they recruit someone into Moola Vine – who then purchases products from them and so on.

The products are provided by the ClickBank and JVZoo platforms – which means that you do not have to create or physically provide the products themselves.

Whilst the primary products recommended pertain to the internet marketing niche (video software, traffic tools, PLR packages), you can promote any products on those platforms with your affiliate links.

This may include both physical and digital products in the health, education, jobs, and self help niches.

Now…

You’re probably wondering why someone would go to the hassle of joining Moola Vine to buy these products via your affiliate link when they could simply get them directly from the ClickBank and JVZoo platforms themselves.

Well, the incentive is that if someone decides to join Moola Vine and buy through your affiliate links…

They’ll get ONE Moola Vine Green Day for every $1 spent.

And what is a MoolaVine Green Day?

A Green Day allows that person to then profit from affiliate commissions in the same way that you did – by encouraging others to join Moola Vine and purchase ClickBank and JVZoo products through their affiliate links.

So in order for you – or anyone else – to be eligible to make money with Moola Vine, you must spend the equivalent of $1 every day to keep your Moola Vine account ‘active’.

You can do this by spending at least $30 per month on products – or by purchasing an Unlimited Green Day Plan.

This plan means that you’ll always be able to make money by responding to product purchase requests made by members of your vine with your affiliate links.

And if any of your referrals purchase the Unlimited Green Day plan you’ll get a $10 commission per referral.

If you run out of Green Days – you’ll not be able to make any money with Moola Vine.

Who’s Behind Moola Vine?

Moola Vine was created by Bryan Winters.

I suspected that this was a pen name at first, but I did some digging around and it looks like Bryan Winters is actually a real person.

It looks like Bryan has launched some similar products before like ‘Dumb Little System’.

It seems like Bryan has a bit of a mixed reputation.

Can You Make Money With Moola Vine?

Technically?

Yes – you can make money if you recruit someone into Moola Vine and they buy products through your affiliate links.

But for the reasons outlined in the second half of this MoolaVine review…

This might be more challenging than you think.

Is Moola Vine a Scam or Legit?

In my opinion?

Moola Vine is a legitimate service – on paper at least.

But in practice?

I personally think that making money with this system is going to be pretty tough.

Here’s why.

My Thoughts On Moola Vine

To be fair?

Moola Vine isn’t quite the blatant scam that I was expecting.

But I do have the following concerns.

1: Making Money Might Be Difficult

Here’s the thing.

Whilst the idea behind Moola Vine is quite clever – it’s probably not going to make the average person that much money.

And the reason?

A lack of quality traffic.

Because just how are you supposed to find people that are not only willing to join Moola Vine, but are also engaged enough to go ahead and purchase products from ClickBank and JVZoo via your affiliate links?

Well, unless you’ve already got a blog or website that’s attracting relevant traffic – you’re going to have to pay for it via solo ads, Facebook ads, or ad space.

This option is presented as a $40 upsell – in the form of MoolaVine traffic shares.

But…

Don’t think that making money with Moola Vine is going to be as simple as buying traffic and sending it to your offer or squeeze page.

Because the number of people that are going to take action from an ad buy are typically not great.

I say this because in my experience of buying traffic bundles from 3rd parties – such traffic is either very cold or completely fake (bot traffic).

The bottom line is that you’re probably going to really struggle to get good leads for the Moola Vine system.

Which brings me to my next point.

2: You Might Lose Money

Unlike ‘normal’ affiliate marketing that typically allows you to make money through your affiliate links with no upfront costs…

The Moola Vine system FORCES you to spend money to avail of the Green Days so that your account is able to receive sale requests and thus make money.

So, if you’re spending the minimum of $30 each month to keep your Moola Vine account ‘monetised’ but aren’t making any sales above this amount…

It doesn’t take a genius to see that you’re going to end up out of pocket – a situation made worse if you’re paying for traffic and not getting conversions.

3: This Won’t Last Forever

And even if you do start making money with Moola Vine…

It won’t last forever – since Moola Vine is destined to collapse.

Why?

Because it uses a chain-based business model, where for one person to make money with Moola Vine, they’re reliant upon someone else joining the programme and spending money.

And whilst you could argue that someone could join Moola Vine and just buy products through you and not bother upgrading to the Unlimited Green Day plan…

I think that it’s quite unlikely that anyone is going to bother using Moola Vine without being able to make money from the system themselves.

So whilst Moola Vine technically isn’t a pure pyramid scheme – nor is it a true MLM due to the downline only being one tier deep – the whole business is structured in an unsustainable manner in my view…

Because people cannot continue joining Moola Vine indefinitely, and when people stop spending money within Moola Vine as a result – each tier will progressively crumble in turn and the whole business will collapse.

Pros

  • It’s technically possible to make money.

Cons

  • It’s quite unlikely that you’ll make money.
  • You could lose money.
  • Unsustainable business model.

Conclusion: Not Recommended

Although it’s technically possible to make money with Moola Vine…

I don’t recommend this system.

The main reason being that you’re being forced to pay money for the right to offer the same business opportunity to others and thus make money.

Which means that you could end up losing money if you buy in and fail to recruit others.

My advice would be to avoid Moola Vine and instead use legitimate affiliate marketing strategies to build a sustainable online business.

How Do You Start a Legitimate Affiliate Business?

The way I did it was to create a website and monetise it with affiliate links.

This is a better way to approach affiliate marketing because the only ongoing monthly costs are my hosting (very cheap) and a few optional extras for premium themes and plugins.

And so I’m under no pressure to make sales to cover any ‘buy ins’ like with Moola Vine.

The outcome?

I now own a 5-figure online affiliate business.
