Coffee Shop Millionaire
Overall Ranking: 62 out of 100
Price: $37.00 a month with upsells
Owners: Anthony Trister
The name implies lots of money!
According to the title this should be an easy way to earn a lot of money on line, by just sitting in a coffee shop and watch the money pour in. It certainly give a good image.
The program is broken down into easy to handle modules, which are all about 1 hour in length.
He focuses on how to earn money online without any experience or prior training.
Just the word “millionaire” makes it very alluring.
As an added bonus, you receive interviews or testimonials from other successful marketers.
There is an exclusive members only area. Which is unique if you join and pay, you should automatically become a member.
A full money-back guarantee for 60 days.
PROS vs Cons
To become a member it is not very expensive to get started. Just watch out for the upsells.
The program has 12 training modules to help you get started, plus some videos which are about 8 minutes long. Except one which is 30 minutes long.
All positive reviews are due to a Guru launch, where your marketing friends make a positive video for you.
This program has additional hidden costs
Your earning potential is not near the “Millionaire” level even if you do achieve success with this program.
The program is not kept up to date.
He teaches you how to sell out sourcing products to local businesses, which can be very hard to do. And he really just touches on it. Also he talks about the new things called “Facebook and Twitter”.
He also refers you to many affiliate offers that he will make money from, which a newbie might not know. But he stresses that you need them to run your business properly.
It has a very poor support system with many upsells.
The only people praising CSM are the people making a commission by recommending it.
WHO IT IS FOR?
Coffee shop millionaire is suppose to be for the beginner to the advanced. But if you don’t have any prior training in internet marketing it will be very difficult for you. For the best training in affiliate marketing click here.
There isn’t much support or replies to your questions and discussions.
Which you certainly need when you first get into a new program, you need all the help you can get. Affiliate marketing is not push a button and the money starts coming in.
It requires writing content on a set schedule, and many other tasks, but it can be a lot of fun and a feeling of accomplishment when the first check comes in.
Watching all the videos, it sounds too good to be true. 60% to 75% is sales video selling the 6 figure lifestyle, the dreams of millionaires and all the same hype that all the other “gurus” are pushing.
First he’s teaching you to sell to local businesses and he’s barely doing that very wel.
Services like SEO, email marketing, Video marketing and taking them to outsourcing sites like ODesk and Elance and just collecting checks. Really, not that easy. Especially if you have zero experience.
Their format is based on teaching you to sell to local businesses, which can be extremely difficult.
Mostly they explain what email marketing is for local businesses. They also explain what Facebook and Twitter are.
Absolutely not a single bit of training in this program.
And, if that’s not bad enough, Anthony recommends you buy large amounts of other offers, programs that he says you need to help run your business, which makes him a lot of money on commissions. Mostly all information that you can find on Google for free.
Coffee Shop Millionaire starts with 12 modules to get you started and also some videos.
They are continually asking for upsells, which can get expensive. Very expensive! Even though the start-up cost is just $37.00 a month, the average member is paying up to $421 in costs.
As far as support goes, it is very limited. There have been many complaints on Facebook that nobody has answered their questions and concerns.
The price is reasonable enough to get started at $37.00, but after you join there is pressure to buy more to make it easier to make the big bucks. Next they want you to join the “6 Figure Success Club” which is suppose to give you a step up, but I think it just gives Anthony the step up with more money.
I definitely would not recommend this product to anyone. If you are in the time frame to get your money back, I would contact Clickbank and ask for a refund. You will never make money with this product, and if you are accomplished in the affiliate marketing field you certainly don’t need to waste your money on this junk.
If you are serious about online marketing, the best system is Wealthy Affiliate. Just read my review here and you will be convinced it’s the best place to be. Plus it’s free. No credit card needed! Wealthy Affiliate has so much to offer, just check it out.

Thanks for publishing your thoughts on Coffee Shop Millionaire.
I’m glad to not have to try this seemingly not valuable program. I am interested in learning more about affiliate marketing and online business but I think I’ll check out your recommendation first.
You say Wealthy Affiliate is free. Are there no fees at all?
I want to build a new website an I am looking for a good training to do this.
Deanna Martin says
Hi Stefan, Sorry I’m so late in getting back to you. Yes Wealthy Affiliate is free to start. You have about a week to go in and look at everything.You can stay with the free starter or upgrade to Premium. If you stay at Starter you are limiter to what training is available. But there is plenty of training to help you get up and running, thanks and good luck, Deanna
Hi Deanna, thanks for sharing this review. Coffee Shop Millionaire doesn’t sound like a very good program for learning how to make money online. From your research/experience, it looks like they promote outdated methods, and they don’t update the product to fit with the latest trends and technologies.
CSM definitely looks like a program to stay away from. There’s no point spending money if you’re getting outdated info, no support from the team, and no sign of “millionaire” income.
Deanna Martin says
Hi Stephanie, thank you for the comment. I’m sorry I was so long getting back to you. In the process of selling a house. I think with get rich quick, most of them are the same. Take your money and usually lots of it and good luck. Hopefully something eventually will be done to prevent this type of promoting will be a thing of the past. Thanks again, Deanna
