How To Make Money From Home | Ways To Make Money



If you do an online search for The Magic of Making up or the Girl Gets Ring System, you will find a lot of reviews that are on people’s blogs. Unfortunately these reviews are not real because they are all hoping to make affiliate sales. That means if you buy the book through their link, they will get a commission. Predictably, all the reviews you will find are positive for that reason.

So who is T Dub Jackson? T Dub is really Travis Sago and any Internet marketer who has been around a while has probably come across him. Internet marketers such as Travis have their fingers in all sorts of pies and in this instance he is fronting his own product which will teach you how to win the heart back of someone who just dumped you.

For $39 you can learn how to get your ex back from someone who claims to have many of the unconventional secrets that the experts would never tell you. Travis, oops I mean T Dub, has a very professional and long sales page which expertly tries to convince you that he can help you with your heartbreaking dillema of how to get the love of your life back.

Does TW know what he is talking about? Is Travis really an expert on relationships? Does his ebook really have any information that works? Or is he an Internet marketer just trying to capitalize on a group of people who are in distress and very likely to pay the $39.00 to try to get their life back together?

I don’t know whether he has any real experience in this arena and I know nothing about his eBook because I have never purchased it. He might very well know what he is talking about I guess.

Travis is a very likable guy who does great videos and is probably most know for his Bum Marketing method. He has a skill of coming off as a regular down to earth guy that just wants to help his audience and I am sure it helps his sales. In fact I am sure he genuinely wants to help you too.

I almost fell off my chair laughing during the first 10 seconds or so of the video where he calls himself TW and instructs the viewer that they can call him T Dub. What an honor! Of course it is only funny if you know that the T Dub and TW Jackson names are total BS.

Here he is as TW (T Dub) Jackson

Here he is as Travis Sago (his real name)

    Dude, that’s not such a cool post.

    Travis is one of the coolest cats in IM. He has helped hundreds of people with his bum marketing without asking for a dime.

    Show me one IMer that is not using pen name for his articles or ebooks.

    You shouldn’t out him like that.

    LOL, but has he helped hundreds of people with relationship advice? As you say, he is an Internet marketer and I find it a bit hard to believe he knows anything about relationships. I’m not outing him. He’s the one who makes multiple videos pretending to be different people. I just put them side by side.

    others problem is a great marketing strategy.

    If anything this is an interesting look in to Travis (oops, sorry T-dub’s) other niches. I like that he is pretty much the same character here as he is when promoting his im stuff. the point isn’t so much whether T-dub the marketer knows alot about relations hips as it is if he can point you to someone who does.

    The job of selling isn’t to be the expert, its to help the expert and the person with a problem find each other. If T-dub is facilitating that link and doing it ethically, then I’d say more power to him, no matter what his name is.

    Looking at his you-tube page it seems he is several of these running so it must be a pretty good niche. Its also great to see that he really does practice what he preaches. Here is a real campaign available for you to disect from someone who makes a ton of money online. Its cool to see that he realy does market outside of the im world.

    I was shocked too! I wasn’t expecting he’d say a different name. I mean I know him as Travis Sago and I’m one of his subscribers. I even searched TW jackson through google then I saw this post so I guess I’m not the only person who got confused there for a moment.. haha

    Well I think that move is a thumbs down. I mean why change your name if you’re really an expert on that and have good intentions.

    I think this is perfectly fine to do. Especially if he is offering useful information. If he had an expert write the E-book then why shouldn’t he be able to promote a product using his face. He really should have used the same name though. Then he could brand himself as “the helpful guy” in any niche he wants. His popularity will grow as a helpful down to earth guy and people will buy his products just because of his name alone.

    One thing is certain – he nuked HIS dayjob.

    Travis is a stand up guy – all he’s doing is acting – that’s what people do on video. You think that all the video testimonials on sales pages are real? It’s no different than using a pen name. It’s business.

    “But is it okay to make a video of yourself and say your name is something other than your correct name and try to make money?”

    Yes it is, as long as you’re helping people, which is exactly what Travis does with Magic of Making Up.

    Why so much hate?

    Psssh…nothing is wrong with using a pen name on the internet. People do it to protect their niches, not to be dishonest.

    Dude is presenting a whole lot of value, making a positive difference in people’s lives and doesn’t mind if you know what you know. Instead of being so judgemental, why not look at what successful people do and do it like them.

    Take a look at Eben Pagan. If you don’t know who he is then maybe you know David D’Angelo – the dating guru. He makes $20 million a year helping guys do better at dating and thats not even his real name.

    Its not a matter of whether you use a pen name or not, its what kind of value you provide and which side of the ethical line you decide to walk on.

    Do you think you deserve an attention. Real Travis Sago did.

    Frankly, I hardly know of any successful internet marketer who does not use a variety of pen names for writing articles. And who is to say he does not have knowledge of his subject. Let’s face it, it is one of the most competitive niches out there, and he does pretty darned well at it. So, is there any real difference in using another name on video. Actors do it every day.

    Keith on August 31st, 2009

    As a newbie, I learned more from Travis than any other internet marketer! More to the point, the advice I have picked up from him in forums, is free!

    Nobody gives back more than Travis. If he wants to use a pen name, he has a good reason for it. After all he is a very successful marketer, and is that not what we all aspire to be?

    OK, yes I fell for this thread. Thousands like me will add their support for Travis, which is what you are banking on! If you are that desperate to bring people to your site, have the courage to knock the baddies out there!

    There was nothing to “fall” for with this post and it only brings in about 1 hit per day. So, if I was “desperate” for hits, I have failed.

    I just thought the name T Dub was so amusing, especially because it isn’t his real name.

    DayJobNuker on August 31st, 2009

    It’s funny that out of all of the IMers that you could call out because of poor ethics/business practices you call out Travis Sago?

    In my opinion, he’s one of the most upfront, honest IMers out there. He understands that helping people makes him money…that’s exactly what he does, help people.

    And yes, those testimonials ARE real! Some other schmuck tried to steal his testimonials for a similar product and Travis was all over him with proof (actual emails) that they were his testimonials.

    Every serious IMer has pen names and it’s a smart thing to do…nothing wrong with it as long as you’re helping people. Do you think Travis wants everybody to be able to search for his name and see exactly what he does to make his money?

    What is your name Nuker? Who is the Day Job Nuker? Couldn’t find your name here anywhere…

    I don’t think the issue is really him using a pseudonym, or even him being a relationship expert (or not). The important thing is whether or not his product meets the needs of its target audience. Yes, he’s making money from people in distress, but then so is every doctor, psychologist, relationship counsellor and self-help book author out there. The issue is not that he’s making money, it is whether or not he’s offering something valuable in return. If the people who buy MOMU are happy with it, and find it helpful at a rough time in their lives (and the relatively low refund rate suggests that most do), then what does it matter if Travis is presenting himself as someone other than who he is? It’s no different than writing a book under a pen name (which is a widely accepted practice, even outside of internet marketing) – he just happens to be doing the same thing with video, and presenting it himself rather than using an actor. It’s the message that really counts, not the messenger or the format.

    Apparently the link to this post has been put on a message board or two and so suddenly all his pit bulls (like you) have come out of the woodwork. Many of these people are coming from Wealthy Affiliate (a site associated with Travis) to apparently save their savior. My post has been up since APRIL and gotten almost no interest until today so don’t get too excited.

    I am not calling anyone out and in fact I like Travis and find him very entertaining and inventive. This whole thing was written when I stumbled across the T. Dub video and litterly spit out some juice I was drinking with I heard him call himself T Dub. Too funny!

    I will tell you what. If Travis himself has any problem with it he can contact me via my “contact” page and if he wants, I can take this post down. Is that fair? I was not trying to hurt anyone just examine whether looking in the camera and saying you are someone you are not is a good business practice.

    PS. And by the way, if you don’t have the guts to leave your website and you only comment via an annonymous name, your comment will not make it.

    And one more thing, how about all the fake reviews you find on the first page of Google when you type in “magic of making up review”. All you pitbulls who don’t have the guts to leave your website know darn well that most of the GLOWING reviews out there are FAKE AND JUST TRYING TO MAKE A SALE. How come you don’t have a problem with them HUH? Answer that before you leave your annonymous comments.

    I’m a member of WA, enjoy Travis’ info.

    I don’t see this as putting the guy down. It is pretty funny when he says “you can call me t-dub”

    I’m all for pen names…didn’t know t-gangsta went by this one though, nice 😀

    Jmoney on September 7th, 2009

    Well, I think it’s pretty dodgy. If you guys have seen his website where he advertises the ‘magic of making up’, he claims to be a lot which he is not and he preaches a lot about practical real life experience and about him being in the army blah blah…

    I’m nothing against pen-names, but at the end of the day why mask your good intentions (If there are genuinely any…) with such a wall of deceit and lies? Good for you guys who have benefitted from his advice. But there are other ways of doing things.

    The intentions of Mr sago are to make money by hook or by crook..if he was’nt a fraud he would use his real name and provide bona fide testimonials of all those people he has “secretly” helped in countless countries who actually could have helped themselves by going to their local library and reading about the known common sense methods of getting your lover back(where T.Dub ripped his material from origianlly)… Self promtion and affliate saturation mnarketing do not a good methtod make(except that most of the material mr dub ripped off does has a fair chance of working but you need not give Mr Sago your hard earned)…Mr DuB like his book,his army physcological army background and intention to help is bullshit designed to make you part with your hard earned money when you are desperate.No more no less.

    bob on December 31st, 2009

    I don’t think you can say he “ripped off” any ideas that can be found at the local library. It is not wrong to put together information that is available in the marketplace and charge for it. That is done a million times a day. Also, there are millions of books that people buy that are based on “common sense”. Most ideas in the world can be called common sense. I also don’t think there is evidence of your “by hook or by crook” statement either. He has put together information and is charging for it….again nothing wrong with that. The only thing is that he is not telling you who he really is.

    DayJobNuker on December 31st, 2009

    Yes, his ebooks and ideas do work. Having used his advice and gathered materials first hand. As mentioned above – no one should be criticized for doing the work to make access to existing info(public) info available. He seems straightforward and I have nothing bad to say when he is helping many guys that do not have the social tools to fix problems on there own.

    Travis Sago was the first person I got involved with when I first started out in IM about three years ago.

    He seemed like a pretty cool guy and I “got” him – you know what I mean when you’re starting out and a lot of people don’t make any sense? Well, he did.

    I bought a couple of his products, but pretty soon after that, he just stopped responding to emails which really pissed me off. OK, so people are busy, but don’t invite people to contact you with queries about your products and then totally disregard them. By the way, he (his autoresponder) was still sending me messages every time he launched a new product for sale, so he was obviously still around.

    Regarding the name, TW Jackson/T Dub. As has already been said, many people use pen names for writing, but if you’re going to make videos where people can see your face, I think you should stick to one name.

    Personally, I think you lose a lost of credibility if you have your face plastered all over the internet on videos, but you’re calling yourself something different in each one – what’s that about?

    With regard to the comment made earlier that Travis/T Dub was just doing this to protect his niche – I don’t get that. Yeah, OK if you’re writing about different niches, but like I just said, putting your face out there is a different matter altogether. The majority of people aren’t stupid and they shouldn’t be treated as such.

    Anyway, good luck to the guy – it takes all sorts and if this is how some people do business, that’s up to them, but it’s not for me.

    Personally, I moved on from Travis/T Dub a long time ago, but as I happened to come across this post, just thought I’d give my 2 cents.
