  1. Thank you, Ian so much for this training. I also want to thank the FIMP team, without any of you, this training wouldn’t be possible.

    I am overly excited to say, that I have supported FIMP, I sent you all my information via email.

    It feels GREAT to be a FIMP supporter. I look forward to continue my training, from here on out, and I can’t wait to announce my success.

    I know it will take hard work, a lot of learning and dedication but, I am ready for success. In fact, I been ready for a while.

    Well, I need to move on to step two in my training.

    By the way, your training, is AWESOME! Thank you so, much for all of your kindness in helping so many people out.

    Your rewards will return 10 folds. I hope you have an awesome! To your continued success 😀

    • Thank you so much for supporting FIMP, and thank you so much for your kind words! Thanks for joining us. I look forward to seeing how you and your business grow over the coming weeks and months. 🙂

  2. I know you get a lot of thank you’s, but THANK YOU!!
    I feel so fortunate to have found you! I am going to do the Thrive Theme. And hoping there will be a monthly donation option in the future! (hint hint)
    Thanks again for your time and knowledge.

    • Hey, ojphd22! It’s not a totally straightforward process. If you have a website on an existing host that you want to keep and is hosted on WordPress currently, you could do some research and follow a step-by-step video or step-by-step article on how to move your website using a free plugin called Duplicator.

      It’s much simpler if you don’t have a website you want to keep because you could just cancel your old hosting account and move forward starting fresh from scratch with Bluehost. But if you have a website you want to transfer, the easiest thing to do would be follow a guide online for Duplicator to move from your old web host to Bluehost (assuming that your old website was also on WordPress).

      I hope that helps!

  3. I am happy to purchase what I need through your link – that is such a small thing to ask for, and it just makes so much sense to me. THANK YOU for providing this free training. I feel so grateful for finding you. I started out looking at one expert training series that charged $10,000.00; then I found another for $2,400.00; then another for $50.00 a month, finally, deep into the trenches, I found a review of your training and I am so glad I dug deep to find you. I will definitely recommend your training to any like-minded people I come across! You are the best!

  4. Hi Ian
    I have just stumbled across your site and am greatly impressed by your dedication to helping us succeed for free – I do realise the enormous amount of work that has gone into this. I have bought many courses over the years for thousands of dollars and although I have had some small success, I have spent FAR more that I have earned.

    It’s time to go back to basics and start from scratch again for one final try to make a living online. I hope that with your help I’ll be able to do that!

    The only tool I currently have is hosting with Hostgator but I have become less satisfied with them over the last couple of years, so when I have watched more of the training I have a mind to cancel that and join Bluehost through you. Any other tools I need will also be bought through your links – we should all at least do something to repay you and keep this great site going.


    • Thank you so much for showing your intention to support FIMP, mpelliot! I hope you’re enjoying the training and that it helps you on your online journey. Best of luck!

  5. Hi Ian,
    Thanks for this. Not many are willing to do anything for free.
    Though is it possible to earn even a little after 3 months?

    • Hey Sesam! This question is very thoroughly and clearly answered in Section 2. Please just proceed with the training and you will find the answers you’re looking for, as far as how long it takes to produce even a tiny bit of income in this industry.

  6. Your presentation skills are so good , i learn from just watching your videos as i have a alot of business presentation at my university .

  7. Hi, Ian. I am a 74 year old New Zealander. I discovered FIMP today. When I have learned how to earn money online I will be running an article on the old folks website that I write for now and then. My articles to date have been on health and fitness but I have always wanted to help oldies find a low cost or free way to supplement their superannuation. I will find out from you. Good on you.

    • Thank you for taking a moment to introduce yourself. I’m glad you made your way here to this safe community. And I hope that what you learn and study in the FIMP training over the coming weeks and months helps you tremendously on your journey. Best of luck, Mike!

  8. Hello, Ian,
    I’m a 76yr.old Navy Vet. I live on S/S. My wife has M/S and I have numerous health issues. My wife and would like to thank you from the bottom our heart
    Thank you again and again. I added you to my “Bucket List” I hope to meet you someday. Thanks, Theo. and Phyllis Winfrey

  9. Good evening Sir. My name is Brad. It is truly a Blessing to have someone like yourself to “Pay It Forward” for others to succeed. Many Blessings to you and your family.

    I am looking forward to studying all your hard work and applying the skill set that you have put before us.

    BTW, can you please send me a link to register. I have tried multiple times to register and I am having no luck.

    Best Regards

    • Thank you for the kind words. I hope you enjoy the training, and I hope it helps you on your journey.

      P.S. I apologize about the registration issues that were present for approximately 24 hours. Those have now been fixed and you shouldn’t have any trouble registering using the “Get More Free Benefits” link in the navigation menu.

  10. Hi Ian
    I can’t promise at this time to buy Blue Host I already have Get Response. But I will encourage your site to people looking into Internet Marketing In time if needing products I will most definitely buy through your links Thanks Ian.

  11. Hi lan,
    I don’t know how I can get to this link or your website (wwwstoppingscams.com), but it’s really make me want to jump in to see if this really help me in this IM business industries.
    I never been any online business so far or been making money online yet, easy to say that I have no experience at all, ZERO.
    And I believe that you genuinely want to help others through your experience.
    I just completed section 1 today, and still excited to continue to the next section.


  12. Hey Ian,
    Just finished up on section 1 of your training and looking forward to the following training. I have been playing so to speak in the IM industry for about 7 or 8 years with success in some areas and not so much in others. Glad I found the FIMP training and looking forward to the rest of it. Just wanted to say thanks in advance for your time and effort as I already know how time consuming a lot of the training is.

  13. That was great I just finished the first section never had so much training like this before but instead I have lost a lot of cash thanks Ian hope to complete the next section which will be another bomb.

  14. Hi Ian,
    Wow i just finished with the SECTION 1. I almost gave up learning Internet Marketing by watching YouTube videos of some people trying to teach in exchange for an expensive course… And nothing actually help. purchasing through your link is gonna be my priority.
    Thank you so much for this…

  15. So glad I stumbled on this site. I just finished section 1 and I think I have found a home after searching for years. can’t wait to dig in and I will be definitely showing my support. Hope to see you on facebook soon. 100% appreciate everything so far. Thanks so much

    • No. This is very clearly and explicitly explained as you continue through the training.

      This is a very, very unreasonable goal that does not set you up for success.

      Anyone who tells you otherwise is lying to sell you a product.

  16. Hi Ian,
    I was so tired watching youtube videos of some wealthy kids trying to give advice in exchange for an expensive course… You already know about all these. I am really happy that I have found you and I am sure that everything you give away for free will come back to you 1000 times more. Of course, I will get any tools I need through your links. That’s the least I can do for you for this valuable content.
    Thank you so much for this…

  17. Hey Ian, really grateful for the info here. Will definitely use your affiliate links when applicable as I continue your lessons.

  18. How refreshing to meet someone who is honest, kind and giving. Many seniors NEED extra income online, but can’t afford the over-priced training courses which leave us out. Thank you so much for providing this for us. You will receive many blessings for your giving spirit.

  19. Hey Ian,

    Thank you So much for developping this free training with great value and for being sincere. I really needed this.

    Best regards,

  20. Hi Ian,

    I wanted to drop by and say hello and a massive thank you for your honest approach to this life changing opportunity. It’s people like you sir who give me and most others hope in a dishonest world.

    I don’t want to come off as cheesy or over the top, but the way I see it is this content you are generously demonstrating to us for free can be the key to make lives better and possibly save lives, I genuinely believe that. So if people reading this think I am being dramatic, I feel the difference you are making to people’s lives warrants this warm opinion of you.

    Over the past year before I noticed FIMP, I have started to realise that if you keep trying and overcome failures along the way, you will eventually succeed. Now that I have found FIMP, I resonate with your hard work and dedication to this opportunity you are giving people!

    As I complete Section 1, I thank you Ian.

    Onward to section 2!

    I look forward to hearing from you again.


    • Hey, Ste! Thank you so much for the INCREDIBLY kind words! I sincerely hope it helps you create a successful journey ahead. I look forward to seeing how you and your business grow over the coming weeks and months. 🙂

  21. I’ve been at this a while and the well just ran dry. I was looking at a review and came on this. Glad to be here.

  22. Okay… I have just completed Section 1 (all 3)…and am ready for Section 2! I really WANT to make this an amazing trip to … SECURITY … which means, hopefully, no more BILLS!!! Thank you for wanting to help. I want to really put what you have, so graciously spent so many months into… and become 1 of your students… to actually make this happen.

    I will do what is necessary…and complete all of your sessions. I want this to WORK!!!

  23. Dude, you’re insane!

    I’m pretty sure you’re the only one to create a 15h course, laying out the entire internet marketing industry only to drive people through your affiliate link. Great determination bro!

    On a serious note now, I must thank you for what you’ve done. I’ve been trying to get into internet marketing for the last year or so so I could pay my college taxes and become more financially independent. This is the FIRST resource that I actually trust and I wanted to thank you for your effort and altruistic perspective. You’re a great man, and when I’ll eventually succeed in this industry, I’ll pay you the 2000$ value of this course.

    Thank you.

    • I’m glad you found your way here, yadnya! I’m very happy to hear that you’re finding the training useful. I hope it helps you on your journey. Best of luck!

  24. If there is someone who has really worked hard to find something to even earn me 500$ a month, then it’s me. I have researched and i was already giving up. I have been scammed by Patric Chan of CB PASSIVE INCOME and am so disappointed.Thanks for this gift and i really hope am gonna make it and earn for the first time online.

    • I’m so sorry to hear that, Antonyo. But I’m so glad you found FIMP, you’re in the right place. I hope FIMP helps you accomplish everything you aim to accomplish trough the training. Best of luck!

  25. You, good sir are a kindred spirit. In this video you have said numerous things that have been going through my head over the last few months as I have been learning and struggling with trying to weed through the scams. One of my blog post/YouTube videos is/was actually going to be titled Pay No Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain. I plan on showing people just how hard it is to create a high quality video when you are just starting out. This project is unbelievable. I can’t thank you enough. Your passion is obvious and genuine!

    • I’m very happy to hear that you’re finding the training useful! I hope FIMP helps you accomplish everything you aim to accomplish through the training.

  26. Yeah i finished my section 1!!

    Ian, you have filled inso many “gaps’ i have in my thought process.
    Thank you for all the content and yes, I will support your links.

    God bless you

  27. Thanks for all the info thus far. I am very new to this and trying to understand as much as possible. If I need anything you recommend, I will definitely purchase from you. It’s always great to invest in the place that feeds you. Again thank you and I’m looking forward to learning this industry. See you at the top!!

  28. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to give back…it makes it all worthwhile and will definitely buy through your links and avoid the ‘Shiny Object Syndrome’, I guess that this course will focus me and I will only buy what I need – Awesome!!!

  29. Hi Ian,
    It is amazing what you are doing to help people.
    I am from India and I could hardly find anything as good as this. 🙂
    We will keep FIMP growing!!! 🙂

    Much Love,

  30. Hi Ian,
    Thanks for this training. I’m feeling less overwhelmed already and it’s free! Will definitely recommend to friends.

  31. Hey Ian, after 100’s of hours searching for clarity in this industry i think i have found a home!
    I trust you and look forward to learning from you.

  32. Ian hello….WH from Colorado we spoke thru email some time ago about a review
    you did on Patrick Chan’s IM products. I love your training, and your sense of humor, you have come a long way since then my friend. Anyway….I would like to sign up for an account to keep up with all the cool stuff your doing now…..but….I DO NOT want anything to do with FB or your group on FB at all (and you probably know why).
    So….if there was a way to start an open account with this training, but not be
    signed up to anything FB…that would be cool. Sorry to be a stick in the mudd about this FB stuff but that’s how I feel. Thanks again for the free training, it’s much better than WA (which is expensive, and you can’t leave). take care WH

    • Hey, WH! Signing up for an account here at FIMP does not at all sign you up for an account with Facebook.

      The Facebook group is used for support so people can ask questions and go back and forth, get help from the community. The account created here at FIMP is totally separate from Facebook. The two don’t overlap.

      If I’m understanding your comment correctly, this shouldn’t be a concern. The only thing you would be missing out on is the Facebook community interaction.

  33. Thank you so much. I very impressed. I will continue to follow and support any request you may have regarding helping me learn what building an online internet business is really all about. I commend you for all your efforts and support at no cost. Ordering what I may need to help me in my online business through your link is a small price to pay for the knowledge that you are sharing. Again I thank you.

    • Thank you so much for your incredibly kind words, MyDoretta! I’m glad you’re finding the training helpful. Thank you for showing your intention to support FIMP. I look forward to seeing how you and your online business grow over the coming weeks and months!

  34. Hey Ian, I wanted to take a minute to drop you a line and comment on your program.
    I am really impressed with your knowledge base and your down to earth and most genuine attitude.
    I will certainly do whatever I can to help keep FIMP alive and continually growing. I will pass the word of your site to other like-minded people interested in growing and learning to become a successful internet marketer and by purchasing through your links.
    You obviously have a lot of support from your followers and I have now become one as well.
    Do not give up and plunge onward through the fog!
    What you are doing here is unique, extremely helpful, and needed!
    You are like a breath of fresh air in all of the smog infested crap out there on the internet.
    May God bless you and your family and thank you for the opportunity to work with and be taught by you!

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, thegooddrk! And thank you for showing your support for FIMP, it really means a lot to me. I sincerely hope it helps you create a successful journey ahead!

  35. Thanks..

    This was actually the day i was about to give up and chuck all this internet crap in the bin.
    so thanks Bob…for this refreshingly honest approach

  36. Hi Ian,

    This is great stuff thus far and I appreciate you imparting your knowledge. Looking forward to working through the project training. Quick question: I clicked “join group” on the Facebook page but it isn’t appearing as one of my groups. Is this because I use a different email for Facebook than I did for this one? Thanks much!

  37. Hi Ian,
    Got it, completely; it’s entirely reasonable for me to extend support for FIMP in the ways you ask. I currently have hosting but those things can change going forward.
    Thank you for providing this training.

  38. So far we really appreciate what you are saying as well as your teaching style. You are very “down to earth” and we are looking forward to the rest of the videos. God bless!!!

  39. Thanks Ian
    we crossed paths with WA, i was searching for a mentor then, so the material you are offering is what i’ve been looking for , so excited to get started, Ill be bring my daughter into your process as well

    thanks again

    • Very glad to have you here, David! You’ll definitely get a much, much stronger foundation here. WA has a lot of benefits, but I’d say those are further down the road (this is explained in detail at the end of the course). Happy to have you here! Best of luck on the journey ahead.

  40. i have been looking for something like this for months now, i knew there had to be someone out there who remembers where they have been and would like others to succeed in life too. THANK YOU, THANK YOU A QUARDRILLION TIMES!!! 😀

  41. What you are doing here is outstanding Ian, there are people who will benefit from your work for years….you are a great communicator and teacher and I highly respect your knowledge and commitment. You are an honorable man my friend and you can be proud of what you do, forever.

    • Thank you so much, Jeffrey. The project is struggling a lot to get sustainable, which is surprising given how overwhelmingly positive the feedback has been. But I’m optimistic that we’ll get the kinks worked out.

      I hope the training has a tremendously positive impact on your life and business. Don’t hesitate to post to the members-only Facebook group if you get “stuck” anywhere along the way!

  42. Enjoying it so far. I will definitely purchase via your affiliate link and recommend FIMP to others. Already joined the FB group to see what issues are being posted.

  43. hey Ian,

    Thanks so much for being so real. I am pumped again. I signed up for fimp a month or a month and a half ago and I think, and I say I have gotten busy with work and/or the fam. But I think most of it is doubting myself. For the past half year I’ve been thinking and wanting this way of life. Now its time to do something about it.

    again thanks for these section 1 videos. I truly appreciate you and fimp.

  44. Sounds great! Certainly will do what I can! Thank you for what you are doing! This gives me hope once again. It’s so hard to find a program or training that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg much less offers free training. I have been wanting to do this all year but just cannot afford the other programs out there that may start out at $25 per month but in the final upsell is $2,500! I work part-time in a grocery store deli making $8 an hour. I know I am worth more than this and thanks to you I may be able to realize my potential! Thank You!

    • Thank you so much, David! That’s EXACTLY what FIMP was created for — to eliminate the “paid training” barrier that so many people face. As long as you’re willing to work hard, this should be everything you need to realize your full potential. I sincerely hope it helps you on your journey!

  45. Ian, do you have a link that I can use to offer friends who may be interested in getting involved in FIMP. I have mentioned it to a couple of friends via Facebook, said I would provide a link as soon as I can so they can check it out, if I use a link that I have it goes directly to my account.

  46. I don’t need to know everything. I just need to get really good at one core competency and I need to get really good at one way to get traffic…..

    there, I have just said it…Thanks Ian

  47. Ian,
    I will happily purchase the tools I’ll need through your links, no problem at all.

    Ha, promise I won’t make a habit of it but I did check out what one of your links lead to, Bluehost from what I hear are very good..

    I do have a question, really I wanted to use my real name but for some reason the site wouldn’t allow me to enter it, if you can help please do..

    • Hey Darren! I still don’t know why the system gave you issues for using your real name — that shouldn’t have been a problem. Sorry it gave you some hassle! Unfortunately I can’t change this on my end, either. Once a username is set, it’s set, unfortunately!

    • Hey Bob — you need to complete the video before the Save & Continue button is available. Otherwise you can just navigate using the other links in the course menu and throughout the membership area, but this will not mark the videos as complete.

  48. Great introduction. I like your style and your honesty and will definitely purchase things I need through your links where possible.

    I may already have much of what you are promoting, like web hosting and I am on a VERY tight budget so I guess we will see how it goes.

    I am looking forward to the rest of the training.


    • No worries at all, Bob. I completely understand. Whatever you can do to help support the project would be very helpful, but priority #1 is getting you on the right path to success — regardless of whether or not FIMP earns revenue in the process.
