  1. I like how you highlighted those various points. Bullion is a great hedge to invest in, and network marketing is great as well as long as someone has the right mindset going into and working diligently on it. How long has that company been around?

    • Hi Andrew and thanks for the comment.

      Yes I figured it was easier to prove a point with bullet points, good you liked it. Bullion is definitely a good hedge for inflation and everybody should be invested in gold somehow I think.

      Network marketing has a huge potential and when you’re promoting gold it makes it even better. The company has been around since 2011. Have a look at my Karatbars review where I go over the free gold savings account.

  2. Hi Marcus,

    In my experience anything that offers you a free account first for you to try out tend not to be a scam.

    I don’t know much about investing in Gold as I’m from foreign exchange trading background.

    I tend to try a product myself and if I like it and think there could be value in other people trying it recommend it to them as well.

    How limiting is the free account with Karatbars, would you say it is enough to get a real feel of the full product?

    • Hi Nate.

      I totally agree with you. Most of the scams out there are those that tell you to buy this package to “unveil” the secret of how you can be a millionaire in 1 week. Obviously a scam.

      With karatbars you can set up a free gold savings account and start accumulating gold yourself. This is the “product” that you are promoting as an affiliate so you definitely get a feel for the product.

      There is actually still a way to make affiliate money on the free account. If you get someone to start a savings account (even though you’re on a free account) you will get a referral fee.

      Opening up a free account today is in my mind a very smart move.

  3. I was very interested with the information on your site seeing as I love finances and saving money and such. Whats the difference between putting your money towards saving in gold or saving in something else like a roth IRA or a 401K? I think it would be interesting to learn more about this.

    • Hi Matt and thanks for the comment.

      I will soon be writing a lot about gold IRA’s and 401k’s. Until then I don’t want to say too much but in essence they are the same. But IRA or 401k is more paper work and more involved with the government and so on for your gold purchase (you have limits).

      Saving yourself there is no limits on what you want to buy, how much and where and so on. Both are a great thing to consider because they are just a vehicle to achieve the same thing: Accumulate as much physical gold as you possibly can.

  4. My husband and I are looking at additional sources of revenue. We have been focusing on investment properties, but we would like to broaden our horizons.

    I suggested looking into buying gold. My husband didn’t seem to keen on the idea so I thought I would do some research to see if it is something that we should pursue.

    I have read many mixed reviews about Karatbars. Pretty much like you said. Those saying it’s a scam are promoting something else and those saying it’s great are affiliates of Karatbar.

    However, your review seems to have the least bias. I will show this to my husband!

    • Thanks for the nice comment Simone.

      They say that the average millionaire have around 7 income streams. That is my goal as well in my life to just keep on finding income streams until I’m financially independent. That means that I have more passive income than my expenses so I can decide for myself if I want to do a 9-5 job.

      The best things about Karatbars is that you’re promoting gold and you are promoting saving money. Most of the other network marketing companies you are selling some form of vitamins, oils or other things (not saying that it’s bad but gold is the most valuable thing on the planet and humans subconsciously know that). With emphasis on selling.

      We all need to save money today, something that I think a lot of us aren’t good at. And to do it in gold, which has held it’s purchasing power for thousands of years, is the right way to go.

  5. I’ve learned more about gold savings in your blog than anywhere else. I’ll seriously consider opening a KaratBar account. Probably not directly for the affiliate marketing opportunities but for the fact of the flexibility of investment. Is there a right time to buy as the gold price is quite volatile with the global economic these days?

    • Hi Kenny, thanks for the kind comment.

      There isn’t every a right time for gold in my view. I hold gold as a long term investment. Maybe if you look at the gold price a day-to-day basis. But if you look at gold as a long term investment it’s always a good time to buy. Because the gold price keep going up.

      Look at this link where I describe the fundamental reasons for why gold is going up over the long term. Yeah maybe it’s volatile day-by-day (although it’s up 26% in the first 6 months of 2016), but if you’ve understood the fundamental reasons you don’t even care about that.

      Please let me know if there is anything that I can help you with Kenny. Check out my facebook page to quickly come in contact.
