Name: Farouk Radwan
Verdict: Not recommended
Farouk Radwan is a young internet marketer working online since 2006. He holds a number of degrees, such as a master in business administration, CCIP, MCSE, MCT and has many other certificates as well.
He is the founder of Empowerment company based in Egypt and specialized in delivering courses both for individuals and corporations.
He owns a number of websites, which provide him a good steady income. His main website is 2knowmyself.com on which he is selling EBooks on different topics related to personal development. Besides that, he offers his ultimate guide to making money online “How I did it”.
Farouk Radwan’s “How I did it” is a mediocre product and can’t provide high quality support that newbies need in order to start making money online. I personally suggest that you join my recommended program that is free to join for the first 7 days. My recommended program I’m a member of since 2013, provides all-inclusive service and support. Feel free to join because it’s FREE to join.
From what you can find on his website, which includes hundreds of articles on different topics, his interviews on TV etc, it becomes clear that he is a young, knowledgeable and successful internet marketer. He was interviewed by several Egyptian TV channels, popular newspapers like OTV, MBC, Cairo today.
But what has caught my attention and I would like to discuss here is his ultimate guide “How I did it”.
“How I did it” is 80 pages PDF guide. Farouk describes his book as a practical course that shows you exactly what you need to do to start making money from your website.
According to Farouk, the techniques that made him successful, were based on his experience from three successful websites of his own. His guide contains as he claims realistic tactics which if applied can help you generate steady monthly income and that you don’t need any previous experience.
And he promises that with his proven system you can make $5000 per month. Farouk also promises that his book doesn’t contain any theoretical recommendations that might work or not, but instead it contains practical approach that he uses to generate thousands of dollars per month.
He doesn’t spend money on his website advertising and so you don’t have to either. Farouk claims that implementing the ideas contained in his EBook will be very easy, because every small detail is explained.
The information in his EBook is based not only on his marketing skills and online experience but includes information on management, psychology and e-commerce. You will learn how to write sales pages for your website, get your pages ranked on Google (SEO), how to compete with your competitors, bring traffic to your website etc.
What I like about Farouk’s product and his approach:
First thing I would like to mention about Farouk’s product and his approach is his being honest with his visitors. On his sales page of “How I did it” he starts his message with his money back guarantee. He promises that if you don’t like his product or consider it to be a scam you can ask for refund.
I personally appreciate such approach, because most marketers try to hype up their product, right from the start.
He doesn’t give you false promises that you will make $30,000 in the first week or that you will become a millionaire in a few months.
So, I definitely like his approach and appreciate his being honest compared to most scammers that give you false promises that you can make millions with their proven system while you don’t make even a penny.
Another positive side of buying from him is that for every book you buy from him, you will get a new version with more pages once it is released. This is very important, especially in case of internet marketing because if you apply outdated techniques your website can lose all rankings thus destroying your entire business.
What I don’t like about Farouk’s product and his approach:
There is no perfect product and this rule applies to Farouk’s product as well. The first thing that I don’t like is that he promises that you will get your money back in a few weeks if you apply exactly the techniques outlined in his EBook.
I’m an experienced internet marketer and can say that this is not true. First you need to build your website, find a product to promote, write content for your website and get some of your pages ranked on Google and other search engines.
Only after all these and few other things have been done you can bring traffic to your website and start making money. Or if you have some extra budget you can start your PPC campaign (paid traffic) preferably with Yahoo and Bing.
But the problem with PPC is that you need to learn, practice and fail until you master the art of PPC, which requires time. As you can see, this is not as easy as explained by Farouk.
Google AdSense that Farouk offers as a technique to start making money right after launching your website is not true as well. Google AdSense doesn’t make any sense for your website if you have no traffic.
All Internet marketers know that Google AdSense is a good way to make some extra money in addition to your main income but only if you have your website up and running and steady daily traffic. This technique can’t be applied to a new website with zero traffic.
In regards to updates for his product, there is some information that I would like to share with you. I once asked Farouk if his ultimate guide included updates and he referred me to Google panda and penguin updates. That means he doesn’t update his EBook in accordance with Google updates, on a timely manner, as he claims to.
On one of his websites related to search engine optimization (http://2earn-online.com/), he tells that when he finds any of his page dropped from search engines he adds some keywords to that page and improves ranking of that page.
This doesn’t sound to be true because search engines don’t rank pages based on the number of keywords anymore. Search engine optimization game changed since 2012, and it is no longer a matter of keywords alone to get your page ranked.
At the time of writing this post I checked and found that though he claims to have 13 different pages ranked on Google’s first page I found only 5 top ranked pages from his website (http://2earn-online.com/). That proves again that to rank on Google doesn’t depend on your desire alone.
It is Google that decides which page to rank, and which to drop. Writing a long page filled with keywords is not a guarantee to get your page appear in top search results. Unfortunately, I can’t show any proof because his site (http://2earn-online.com/) was shut down for a reason I don’t know.
Final word on Farouk Radwan
Finally, I’m not going to tell you that his product “How I did it” is bad or a scam. No, it is not. I tried to be honest in my review based on my knowledge and experience. The price of his product is 49$ – affordable for most people.
There is no any support promised to the buyers of this product, which is not good. To be successful online you need to get trained at the right place and you need support. Building a business online requires time and dedication and you will definitely get stuck at some point if you do it alone.
And I don’t think Farouk is going to help you until you become successful because if you buy his product, don’t forget that you’re going to be one of many other people who buy from him. If you have any problems or questions and trust me, you WILL have many… you are probably going to solve it on your own.
