From a Nobody to a NuBody: Brain Control For the Masses

When you’re busy making money online, it’s far too easy to take poor care of yourself. You might miss a meal or skip a trip to the gym, just so that you can learn a little more about blog monetization or the latest SEO strategy. Folks, you’ve got to take of yourselves, because wealth without health just isn’t worth it. You need balance.

In keeping with a healthy lifestyle, you need proper nutrition and an appropriate exercise regimen, but some herbal remedies, like those available from NuBody Supplements, probably can’t hurt either. Don’t worry, there’s more to this review than a bunch of pills; there’s a chance to make some money too.

Your Path to Ultimate Health

One of the fastest growing industries in the world today is that of nutritional supplements. Many people are tired of all the pharmaceutical companies (artificial drugs, side effects, etc.) and this is why there is a push toward alternative medicine and care, which includes strategies like acupuncture, aromatherapy, and — in line with today’s review — herbal remedies.

NuBody Supplements has a healthy line of herbal products that have been designed to help with several aspects of your life. If you happen to be a work-at-home professional like me, you may struggle with energy deficiencies. For that, NuBody has Time Release Energy, which promises to provide “an improved feeling of well-being.”

Other items in their product line include an organic health multi-vitamin, an appetite suppressant, and Omega-3 fish oil. It’s holistic healing “at an affordable price, without sacrificing quality.”

Brain Control For Better Blogging

Perhaps most suitable to bloggers and dot com moguls is the NuBody Brain Control pill. Available in a container with 90 capsules for $50 (or $45 if you subscribe to a monthly supply), Brain Control is supposed to do three things:

Sounds like three things that any blogger may need. How else can we pump out quality content on a continual basis? I’d imagine that Brain Control may be a good product for older folks suffering from memory problems too. Unfortunately, NuBody does not appear to have any scientific evidence to substantiate their claims.

Got Anything For Squinty Eyes?

No, that’s not meant to be a racist comment. It’s more an observation on how the NuBody Supplements website is set up. The default font size is too small for my tastes and I’m guessing that other individuals may have a difficult time reading all that text. Pretty well every page — from the home page to the page on the company’s philosophy — makes you want to squint your eyes, just so that you can discern what they’re trying to say.

I would also appreciate a few more graphical elements on the website, because while the green, white, and gray color scheme is very fitting to the botanical and herbal markets, the text feels very heavy and overbearing. A couple of pictures, if only to break up the text, would help a lot.

The Affiliate Program

Remember how I said that there would be an opportunity to make money online with NuBody Supplements? That’s because they’ve got a fairly lucrative affiliate program that pays you a 35% commission on every sale that you refer. This commission also filters through to a second level, wherein you get 5% on the retail price of any sale made by someone who signs up under your account.

Seeing how the pills go for about $50 a bottle, you’re looking to net about $17.50 for every sale you send their way. That’s not bad at all and NuBody has “several banner [sic] currently available for use on your site, and will be adding more shortly.” Yes, the English isn’t the best, but it’ll do. On a side note, am I the only one who thinks NuBody sounds and looks a little too much like Nobody?

Win An iPhone, iPod, Xbox 360, or PS3

If the affiliate program is not enough of an incentive for you, NuBody Supplements is also holding a contest wherein they are giving away two rather substantial prizes. The first contest is open to bloggers whereas the second contest is open to affiliates.

In both instances, the winner have a choice between an 8GB iPhone, 16GB iPod (touch?), Xbox 360 Elite, and PlayStation 3 80GB. Click here to read the full contest details.

  2. monkey says:

    1. Alan Johnson says:

      Actually, the post was written by Michael Kwan, not John 🙂

  3. Maynas Chua says:

    😈 Now, that’s something special John 🙂

  4. CAR says:

    John- excuse this, but your site ****ing sucks. you post about stupid reviews you got paid for that are all bull shit like Agoloco or w.e. you post about your stupid fear factor type sushi dinners, and affiliates. no helpful info on here, i think the best thing on your site is the lambo on top. How you became successful is amazing, you write about stupid shit, like you’re dinner or queer light shows. Every post is dinner, or some fake website you review or try and spam us, why do people read about your stupid shit. people need to get a life then read about what you got this time at this sushi place, or what new make money trick do you have now.

    1. KiwiPulse says:

      You can’t blame John, NuBody is hosting a great contest. I would love to win a xbnox 360 or PS3 😎

    2. Dude, WTF!? It’s a nutritional company with an AFFILIATE program. How is that not helpful and about making money?

    4. Kabatology says:

      “Miscellaneous ramblings from a dot com mogul”, its a private blog, if you don’t like it, then stay off. WTF.

  5. CatherineL says:

    Hi John – this sounds a lot like AcuVue (think that ‘s the right spelling) that is available in the UK. Apparently it works and even schools are encouraging parents to buy it for their children.

  6. Kwan I think its suppose to sound like New Body!

  7. its michael kwan on this post, not john

  8. David Chew says:

    It has affiliate program and contest. 😀

  9. Contest Beat says:

    Testimonials please – try some 🙄

  10. The Foo says:

    heh! not sure what to think about a vitamin supplements review on a money making blog but if someone paid me $450 a pop to write about it on my blog, I’ll do it too. In John Chows defense, this blog has turned out to be his lifelihood — so he has to make money somewhere… even if it is as cheezy as writing about supplements.

    1. Shaun Carter says:

      Actually this blog does not earn him his livelihood, it’s a hobby. His bread and butter comes from The Tech Zone and TTZ Media.

      1. Alan Johnson says:

        Of course, but the fact that he is a well-known blogger automatically has the fact that all of his projects receive an impressive jumpstart as a result. There is always more to being a blogger than just the income generated by the blog in itself.

        Alan Johnson

      2. Matthew says:

        Does it come from the tech zone any more? I only see a couple of updates a month it seems.

        1. Alan Johnson says:

          My guess is that, in the long run, TTZMedia will clearly become his biggest moneymaker, but the brand he’s created around himself as a blogger will make a huge difference. Shoemoney and AuctionAds is the first example which comes in mind.

  11. Michael J. says:

    I gotta say, the blog is losing quality for the past months. Even though before that there were posts about cars, food and hundreds of reviews posts, every once in a while a gem in the rough was discovered.

    I can’t speak for everyone else, but I think many will agree that tips about webmastering, site building, productivity tips and tools, how did you start from scratch (That’s what I want to read!), how did you start networking, etc. All without affiliate links of course, while there is no problem in earning a few bucks (or a few thousand dollars) I always twist my nose when I see an affiliate link on this blog, because I can’t tell if you actually used the product. Sometimes your reviews have different writting styles, which makes me believe you are using ghost writters. But I could be wrong. 🙂

  12. Just wanted to point out two things, none of of products are “holistic” and anyone using the coupon code “johnchow” will get 20% off of their order

  13. Also the review was supposed to focus on what John Chow readers are interested in (affiliate programs and free stuff) we just launched a new affiliate program and we are having a contest to promote it, and that was what the review was meant to mostly focus on.

  14. Jimson Lee says:

    I may not know a lot about Blogging or Internet Marketing, but this is one topic I’m an expert in (I coach Track and Field).

    If you want Brain control, or alertness, there are 3 choices:
    1) caffeine
    2) Nootropics (i.e. tyrosine to block tryptophan, the “sleepy” amino acid)
    3) combination of both

    A good example of #3 is Red Bull.

    If you want to read more on this topic, I have an article on my blog at:

  15. Jimson Lee says:

    Also, don’t confuse this with NuSkin, a MLM (pyramid structure).

  16. I think this is a great review of a product that seems on the surface to be a much needed commodity for people interested in health. I really appreciate what goes into the product because it appears there is nothing artificial in them. (I read most of the site and ingredients) Many nutritional supplements that claim to be “all natural” have silicone dioxide or titanium dioxide in them or some other chemical additive. So far, this looks good to me. Way to go on a product much needed in the supplement industry!

  17. i think i quite agree with you.people are tired of drugs from phamaceutical companies.i think one of the reason is because of the side effects.for example,some of them are habbit forming which makes the patient dependent on them.i think this is so because any thing that isartificial is foreign to the body.

  18. John Chow Fan says:

    John,

    I think alot of your readers feel pretty insulted by this post. It more of a sales pitch than anything else, and believe me, that’s NOT what your readers are here for (especially me). I understand this is not your post, but it is YOUR BLOG, and michael kwan is only hurting it with posts like these, and i’m not the only one who thinks that right now. I’ll say again, this was NOT a review of any kind, and more and more of your posts are talking less and less about blogging, and more and more about other crap.

    Can we get back on track here, Mr. Chow? We can start by not allowing Mr. Kwan the privilege of writing for your blog anymore…..

    just my 2 cents, even if others don’t agree, I know PLENTY of other do.

  19. Ooo I chance to win, will have to go take a look! 😈

  20. Shaun Carter says:

    So it looks like this is going to be a “Bash John” comments-fest. You people need to get a grip. The world would be a much better place if when people don’t like something, they just stop reading/watching/going to it!

    1. Alan Johnson says:

      Indeed, especially since the review IS related to the theme of the site. The people behind NuBody Supplements have ordered the review (knowing that this blog has influential readership) in order to promote their affiliate program, it’s as simple as that.

      Alan Johnson

  21. Good review. Thanks for sharing an extra way to make $… I am going to read up more on the overall effectiveness of the product before I recommend buying something that doesn’t work ❗

  22. Will says:

    yea kinda weird seeing a post about a herbal supplement on here.

  23. Herbal supplement… hmmmz..
    😯
