CB Passive Income Review: Patric Chan Fails to Deliver

By Ian | Negative Reviews

CB Passive Income review featured thumbnail

Patric Chan talks a big talk, but in this unbiased CB Passive Income review I’m going to walk you through some of the product’s sales claims, the product itself, and very clearly show why you’ll be very disappointed if you purchase it.

I am not an affiliate for Patric Chan or CB Passive Income. I’m just an experienced internet entrepreneur that wants to keep people like you safe from buying low-quality, crappy products that will let you down and hang you out to dry.

CB Passive Income Review At-a-Glance

If you don’t have time to read the entire review below, here’s the long and the short of it: Don’t buy CB Passive Income. Patric Chan makes a bunch of promises and under-delivers on all of them, very similarly to another serial product publisher, Ewen Chia. You’ll spend more time and money than you can imagine trying to get this broken product to work, and new internet marketers all across the internet are failing after falling for Patric’s promises.

I explain all of the reasons why and provide supporting evidence in the review below if you want more proof.

Patric Chan Does Everything… Except the Hardest Part

Patric Chan's sales claims

Click to zoom

Here’s how CB Passive Income works: Patric gives you a couple of squeeze pages, you send traffic to those pages, and Patric adds them to an email list and “sells them for you”. In theory that sounds like a pretty sweet deal, but the hardest part of that three step process is getting traffic, which you’re still stuck with.

If you’ve never made money as an internet marketer, it’s easy to overlook what a bogus deal this is. You’ll either have to send paid traffic to the squeeze pages you’re provided (which will be hard because they’re duplicate content) or create content that gets ranked in the search engines and drive traffic from your content to the CB Passive Income squeeze pages. If you can do this, you can promote any product on the internet and don’t need Patric Chan’s product.

So if you’re an experienced enough internet marketer that you’re capable of driving traffic to these landing pages, the product isn’t for you because you can make money selling anything you want online – you don’t need Patric Chan. 

If you’re an inexperienced internet marketer that hasn’t successfully generated traffic to any sites or affiliate offers in the past, Patric Chan doesn’t teach this but sticks you with it instead, leaving you blindly throwing money at paid advertising or slaving hours upon hours each week creating content to try and get traffic without any training or direction. In this case, you definitely don’t need CB Passive Income because it’s going to cost you an enormous amount of money in paid advertising or a tremendous amount of time creating content, something Patric promised you wouldn’t have to do.

Chan has missed both markets here: It’s not in an experienced internet marketer’s best interests because they can promote thousands of other offers or sell their own products instead, and it’s definitely not in an inexperienced marketer’s best interests because there’s hardly any direction or help in the areas they need it the most.

Brace Yourselves – Upsells are Coming

If you’ve purchased more than two or three internet marketing training courses in the past, you’re probably sick of being pitched upsells. The sales page makes you think you’re getting access to an incredible, life-changing product. After you buy, you hear about some miracle add-on that you need to buy to truly get those results. After that, there’s some exclusive coaching, added bonus, or some other B.S. you’re being pitched to make the product publisher more money.

Nothing screams greed quite like multiple upsells. It’s a big “F**K YOU” to your customers and shows that you’re more interested in making more money off of them than providing an all-inclusive, helpful product for one price. It’s deceitful, and no legitimate product publisher I know tries to pressure you into upsells to get the most out of their product.

In comes CB Passive Income. There are a grand total of three upsells you have to decline before gaining access to the product you just paid for:

Upsell pitch #1

$97 for CB Passive Income “Pro”

Upsell Pitch #2

$47 a month for another worthless add-on

Upsell Pitch #3

“But wait! I’ll give it to you for $1 instead and surprise you on your bank statement later!”

When I’ve just paid $47 for your product, I want access to it NOW. I don’t want to have to sit through more long videos, get discouraged because you’re basically telling me what I just paid for is worthless without these add-ons, and scroll to the bottom of the page to find the cleverly disguised, “No thanks, I don’t want to wake up to a ton of my money in my bank account tomorrow” links.

Other New Internet Marketers Speak Out

You really have to dig past all of the fake, positive reviews published by affiliates to find honest reviews in this industry. If you do that for CB Passive Income, you’ll find a theme: New internet marketers are struggling, spending their hard-earned money on not only CB Passive Income but also on experimenting with driving paid traffic to Patric’s sales pages too.

Don’t end up like the two people above. Avoid buying the product and wasting your time and money trying to make a broken product work.

Oh… And It Took Over 48 Hours for Me to Gain Access

User account not approved error message when trying to log in

Click to zoom

You read that right, I couldn’t access the product immediately like I was promised. I kept getting a “User Account Not Approved Yet” error message.

I have no idea what went haywire in CB Passive Income’s system, but I didn’t receive an email like I was supposed to (not even in my junk/spam folder) and had to file a support ticket and wait for two days before I was even able to access what I’d paid for. Nothing will upset a paying customer quite like that.

Final Rating: F

With all of that being said, CB Passive Income fails on every level. It makes misleading sales claims, fails to deliver what Patric Chan promised, pummels you with a barrage of upsells, and then will most likely end up costing you even more time and money trying to get traffic so that Patric Chan can “do all of the work for you”.

CB Passive Income is bogus, and regardless of whether you’re new or not-so-new to this industry, there are definitely better products out there for you to buy.

Hello, Ian

Thank You for advising us to stay away from cb passive income which certainly does seem to fail to deliver. Normally when something like this offers a product/service for $1, you just know that an expensive fee is hidden round the corner somewhere.

This is exactly how scams work because they get you hooked on small fees and then bombard you with upsells and/or hidden costs.

Cheers for this review.

    You’re absolutely right, Neil! I’ve never seen a product publisher selling a product for $47 or more offer the product for $1 that DIDN’T have a shady rebill on the back-end a few days later. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment – it’s always great to hear from visitors and know that my content is actually helping people! It means a lot to me.

I know about Chan and you’re right on. Bought his basic product to look at and evaluate about 18 months ago. It’s crap with a half hearted attempt at looking legitimate. As far as his latest upsell goes, I’ve got an Apaloosa stallion that produces better.

    Ian May 7, 2015

    Hahaha! He actually tried to get my website shut down for giving his product a negative review (he wrote my hosting company’s abuse department). He also threatened further legal action from SINGAPORE – like that’s going to happen.

I have to admit, I didn’t buy the product but I know someone who personally has and he couldn’t get anyone to buy that thing. On top of that he was upset of the upsells thinking he could still profit with $47 but couldn’t. I wouldn’t recommend this product even to my worst enemy.

The good Lord knows that you’re my last hope for starting an internet business. If I had all of the $1+- trial offers followed by $97 month +- I’d have my $2,000 back. Their information or offer sounded much like Patric Chans. If I had back $1,000 that I invested in binary trading options I could invest in your program that will every now and then need cash. I informed many of the individuals that I purchased “we’ve done everything for you. All you need is to turn it on. Here are a few individual testimonials who received their profits from before they received their credit card statement.”
When these “millionaires who only had my best interest at heart one to three months earlier and now were hiding behind foreign bank(s) or bankruptcies I almost lost faith in people who I trusted and now were threatening our 51 year old marriage “Honey, we didn’t have $2,500 to invest in speculative businesses” I had to say your right we didn’t and I’ll find a way to make it up to you”
Well here I go again with my credit cards stripped of all of their credit limits.
I pray and hope that my final foray internet marketing will not fail. I have 48 years of consultative sales and adding over $40 million (when a $1 was real money) of net value to more than four hundred clients in twenty nine states with a reputation of being and named a “financial geru” in reputable publications) I’m now permanently disabled with uveitis secondary to ankylosing spondylitis which has required four disc spinal surgeries (L-2 through L5) and the loss of 25% of my vision in my right eye. In November 2012 the University of Illinois Eye Clinic told me in addition to my diagnosis that I likely would be in a wheel chair and legally blind within four months. My wife is in remission from breast cancer and basil cell carcinoma. Finally, I’ve been doing the best due diligence that I knew since January 2013 praying that God would find a internet business that could replace our losses of a lifetime and provide for a way to just pay for basic living expenses of about $3,000/ month . . . no wants, no desires just basic living expenses.
Thanks for listening. I hope and pray this works out. I don’t need the six figure income I was earning before I was lost my ability to work 60 to 70 hours a week. If it doesn’t, I’m done.

Hi Ian,

Glad I found your site. As for all these Sellers claiming to make this and that and plenty of $$$, I realized they made it not by using their own system or course but rather selling dreams and fake promises to gullible, poor and desperate people. I will besigning up for your free training. Thks!

    Ian January 22, 2016

    You’re absolutely right, David. And it’s sad how often you get into a product where the publisher clearly DOESN’T know what they’re talking about or make money that way. The people that do are very, very obvious and it’s extremely refreshing where you get into a product, see examples/case studies from their past work, and know without a doubt that they make a living doing what they’re teaching.

    I hope it’s clear by my free training that I do this for a living, and if you have any questions as you’re going through it, don’t hesitate to reach out.

i m just discovering internet marketing. I think i have fallen prey to a course with low start up, from US i presume, & then i got upsell $100 automatically after 4 days something like that without looking at the fine prints. 🙁

Is that a scam?

btw, i met Patric chan & been to his seminars. i m shock at what these things he is doing as you revealed.
I m enrolling in his 6-week programs of internet marketing free of charge – not the CB passive income.
The program is using internet marketing to promote a network marketing company’s products.

    Ian February 20, 2016

    Hey Fisher, I’m not sure whether or not it’s a scam based on what you’ve described here, but it sounds like shady billing practices at the least. I would say any company selling ethically would have made the automatic billing much clearer and hard to miss if they had their customers’ best interests in mind.

Patric has a 6-week intensive Marketing Training course with no upsell he wanted me to get and where he trains you for six weeks in affiliate marketing, wordpress, squeeze page, etc. and traffic.What can you tell me about this course? Will your free training cover this material as well and as completely as he claims?

Reply
    Ian May 4, 2016

    After reviewing several products from Patric over the years, I would be VERY surprised if he delivered half of what he claims on his sales page and in his sales emails. I’m not sure what course you’re talking about without naming the product, but that’s what I’ve seen from him time and time again over the years.

Thanks for the review on Patric Chan. I was going to sign up for his program. I have lost a few dollars on other programs that didn’t work. I am about to give up on all internet programs. Your wealthy affiliate looks promising though. I am retired and I am not tech savvy. Question: If I got into this program and followed everything you teach what would be a realistic income. Say in 3 months.
Look forward to your reply.

    Hey Don, I believe you emailed me too (which I replied to a little bit ago). Thinking about how much money you can make in internet marketing/affiliate marketing within the next three months is not a mindset that sets you up for success. Expect to study, work hard, and grow over the next 9-12 months minimum and you’ll be setting yourself up for success much better.

I have taken a week to review all of thees guys and gals too who have these “GREAT FREE PROGRAMS WHERE I TEACH YOU EVERYTHING.” This guy almost got me because out of all of them NONE OF THEM can boast RICHARD BRANSON, THE CLICK BANK VP OF MARKETING and others that he parades for you. I was actually beginning to feel some hope. NOW YOU are here and although you tell us not to go to Patrick YOU HAVE A PROGRAM. Just tell us NOW how many “up-sells” are in YOUR PROGRAM? I am asking myself IS THERE ANYONE OUT HERE THAT IS IS HONEST?!!!! I’m thinking the only way is just to do it yourself and learn through trial and error. Lot of good stuff free on youtube to at least get started cause now I DON’T JUST NO ONE….EVEN YOU. That REALLY makes me be feel bad because YOU COULD BE THE ONE that is legit. But how the hell would anyone of us that are new really know?

I will say that even thought you are telling the truth, you are no saint either. Every affiliate marketer has an angle. Take you for example, you are writting a negative review about a VERY popular affiliate product that most people fail at. But why would you do this? Is it maybe so you can gain the trust of these people so they can go to your FREE training? sounds like a sales page to me, but i wont judge you because i get it, thats how you make your money. Word of advice to the people who are reading this, build an emailing list and find products that you can promote and sell. Stop been lazy and finding easy way outs because you will end up losing more money.

    Hey Chris, you’ve got it mostly right.

    I can honestly say my #1 priority through this site is helping people — commissions never influence my recommendations or reviews, otherwise I’d be recommending $2,000-$5,000 programs that would produce a lot of commissions but completely set people up for failure. The commissions from this site are nice (although they’re very small), don’t get me wrong, but I NEVER refer someone to a product or service with the commission in mind. I see it as my responsibility to help people above all else. It’s guidance that I wish someone had provided for me when I was getting started many years ago.

    I 100% agree with your closing statement though — the vast majority of people fail in this industry because their mindset is totally wrong and they’ve been programmed to think there’s an “easy” way to success in this industry. I’m starting to think that the best way I can help people seeking to build a business online is to focus on shifting that mindset from the beginning.

Yes, earlier this morning I was researching digital marketing for beginners n came across an ad for sumthin that patty chan is offering. So I received an email from him bout this free training program that consists of 16 short youtube videos. So I been watchin tha videos n takin notes n stuff, but I’m not finished wit them. Idk why, but I decided to stop, open another tab, and search this dude’s name. Low n behold I find this page exposing patty for being a conniving trickster who is only interested in pilfering tha pockets of honest ppl tryna provide for themselves n their families. Good thing I found this page, even though if I would’ve been propositioned with an offer to purchase a product from him, it would be promptly ignored. When you lookin for free money makin opportunities, it’s almost a given that you/I don’t have a whole lot of money to burn in tha first place.
