Is Genesis Investing System a Scam? Unlock the $39 Playbook!

The Genesis Investing System
Your friend might want to know about this:

Were you curious about this investment systems’ promise of turning your $500 into $650,000? If that is so, then you have come to the right place because today we will leave no stone unturned as we answer the question: 

 

Is Genesis Investing System a scam, or is it worth your time? 🕵️‍♂️

 

During these turbulent times, a huge number of people are turning to the internet as a source of media entertainment and continuing work. 

Today, financial experts are seeing a steady rise in the number of new investors in the market who are all looking for ways to learn and earn from investing in stocks, trading cryptocurrencies, and forex.

And if you happen to be one of them, then I can comfortably say that you’ve made a smart decision.

It is smart in the sense that I am assuming that you are entering the market with full knowledge about the high-risk return possibilities.

If not, then let me pull you back to reality by saying that no one will insure the money you will *most probably* lose from the market. Not the government. Not the corporation, nor your broker.

Given the risks involved in actual trading, many people are also looking into its less-risky brother called crowdfunding.

Technically, crowdfunding is a method by which a company or entrepreneur can tap into a large pool of individuals (the crowd) to gain enough money to pursue a project.

 

Some popular examples are KickstarterPatreonIndiegogo, and CircleUp. 🙂 

 

Back in the days, if you want to build your business, you can get funding from venture capitalists, banks, and wealthy businesspeople.

However, with crowdfunding, you can give pitch online through different platforms and let interested parties worldwide invest in your project in exchange for equity or a reward.

While the concept sounds promising, the crowdfunding sphere is also filled with scammers. Just as what the Federal Trade Commission warned, “the project you are backing is only as good as the people behind it.”

Just this August, it was found that there are donation-based crowdfunding scams involving people who are duping cancer patients’ accounts.

Understanding the threatening side of this form of investment, Matther Millner and Wayne Mulligan founded Crowdability to empower and protect aspiring investors systematically through proper education.

To save you from experiencing financial regrets, I will lay down all the important information I found out about the Genesis Investing System popularized by Crowdability.

Oh, and you might want to stick around since I’ll also be sharing some excellent news with you towards the end of this article. I don’t want to reveal what it is quite yet, but I promise you’ll like it. 

If you are up for that, then let’s unmask the men behind the system. 🚀 🚀 🚀

 

Who are Matthew Milner and Wayne Mulligan?

When it comes to investing and technology, this power duo is undoubtedly someone you do not want to mess with. 

 

Why? Simply because they know what they are talking about. 👌 👌 👌 

 

You see, before co-founding the Crowdability platform, both of their names have made rounds on the fields of finance and computer technology.

Matthew Milner holds under his belt an MBA from Kellogg School of Management and a BA from Cornell University. Based on his LinkedIn account, his early career was in sales and marketing. 

He headed numerous businesses such as The Mogul (998), Answerology (2003), Hearst Digital (2011), and NETE (2012). He also became a partner and co-founder of Collective Spark (2012) and Buttonwood Ventures (2013).

Aside from his experience in financial media, Wayne Mulligan is also a technology enthusiast. Before Crowdability, he found himself venturing on tech platforms and built an investor tool for finance, TickerHound. 

This tool was then acquired by the Institute for Individual Investors (formerly known as Tycoon Publishing). He also joined the institute as the director of technology (2008), COO (2011), and as a CEO.

In 2013, Matthew and Wayne founded Crowdability in New York with the major aim of guiding interested investors in unlocking the possibilities of having crowdfunding assets.

 

What is Crowdability?

The mission of the company is quite heroic. It capitalizes on promoting safe crowdfunding activities through its free newsletters for research, investing lessons, and special software.

As I have advocated in my previous posts, you should invest in knowledge first to make your investment positions less risky, more profitable, and more efficient – and this is what Crowdability hopes to accomplish.

I understand that there are people who claim that this is a scam, but I believe that the reasons they are saying that is because they do not know what the company’s primary industry is. 

 

You see, Crowdability is not a crowdfunding broker. 👈

 

Rather, it is just an information service (for education) which aggregates insights about the crowdfunding market.

Unlike other educational platforms, Crowdability does not have a huge social media following. As I have checked their accounts, I can sense that it is not well marketed since there is almost zero engagement. 

I find this a bit intriguing. Just by judging the website below, you can see that it was featured in MarketWatch, Benzinga, Forbes, Yahoo and About, yet not a lot of people know about the company.Is Genesis Investing System a ScamAdditionally, Crowdability is marketed as the “world’s first independent research and education company for equity crowdfunding“, but despite being the front runner, not many recognize its credibility.

Just for clarification, I am not saying that the company is not credible. It is listed and recognized by BloombergInvesting, and Crunchbase. All I am saying is that for an educational platform founded by tech people, it is quite difficult to see why it is not marketed well online. 

 

What is The Genesis Investing System About?

The major service offered by the Crowdability is the Genesis Investing System (GIS). It is a system which educates investors about the value of crowdfunding than directly investing in the stock market.

It provides three major steps known as the ASE (A= allocate, S= Screen, and E= Evaluate).

 

Here is my honest take on this. 😊

As someone who has played with the market (bearish or bullish), I can say that the risks in both are almost the same.

It just so happened that I find it better to invest in IPOs that are from household names than investing on the debut of a lesser-known company.

For people who are interested in the Genesis Investing System, you can expect that the platform will encourage you to invest in startups and new firms.

Also, I believe that Crowdability is quite smart at this point. 

The Genesis Investing System promises to help investors assess ( and give you names of ) startup companies, meaning that it not only earns from your purchase of the system but also from the startups which they help get funding.

 

How much does the Genesis Investing System cost?

There are three membership levels for the GIS: The platinum, gold, and silver.

As of writing, the one-time payments for the platinum and gold membership are both priced at $79, while the silver comes with a $39 price tag.

Budget wise, the system is quite affordable compared to other educational platforms about investments.

They also provide a 30-day money-back guarantee if ever you come across any issue. However, given the price tag, I don’t think many will prompt a refund. 

 

The Platinum and Gold level comes with:

•  The Early Stage Playbook ✔

•  Tutorials on how to use top equity crowdfunding platforms ✔

•  The 60-minute Angel Investor ✔

•  Double-Digit Returns in Private Income ✔

•  A Mutual Fund for Start-ups ✔

•  20 Pre-IP Investments ✔

•  2 In-depth Case Studies (for platinum members only) ✔

 

The Silver level comes with:

•  The Early Stage Playbook ✔

•  Tutorials on how to use top equity crowdfunding platforms ✔

 

I firmly believe that given its budget-friendly pricing, it is something that anyone can easily fall into. After all, if you can assess and evaluate a company comprehensively before investing, then the chances of banking a significant return is possible.

 

Is Genesis Investing System A Scam?

The Genesis Investing System is not a scam. Rather, it is an affordable way to learn more about crowdfunding concepts.

However, you should note that it is mainly just about crowdfunding, so the market terms you might be looking forward to learning may not be included in any of the membership levels.

From the way I see it, there are three reasons why people say that the system is a scam.

First, some purchased the educational system without fully understanding the risks involved with crowdfunding. 

Second, I feel like the website of Crowdability is not that informative, which makes people think that the site is a broker.

Third, since the social media following is small people instantly think that this could be a scam when in truth, only a few people follow their accounts because crowdfunding is not a well-known investment opportunity.

 

It all boils down to this. 👇 👇 👇

 

Before trying crowdfunding, bear in mind the following:

    1. Since you are investing in a company that is not publicly listed, you must do thorough research about the management and the status of funding.


       

    2. Crowdfunding is not a get rich quick scheme. A long term investment horizon is a must.


       

    3. Since not many are aware of crowdfunding, the ROI may be a lot longer than what you have imagined. You see, a project will not push through as long as the required funding is not yet met.


       

    4. Your chances of earning from crowdfunding mainly depend on how well you evaluate a company. Be sure to properly “assess” and make sure that the over-promises and perks stipulated by the company are not clouding your judgement.

How I Make A Living Online (And How You can do the Same)

Let’s be realistic, so you don’t get burned. 🔥 🔥 🔥

Investing in a startup company entails huge risks. Unlike other money-making opportunities, your possibility of earning in the crowdfunding space is dependent on the company’s management.

Luckily for me (and for you), I found an unbeatable passive income opportunity that comes in the form of affiliate marketing.

Allow me to summarize what this model is about: (1) promote other people’s products and (2) earn a commission whenever a purchase is made through your affiliate link.

 

See how easy it is? Just two steps. (Yup, two)

 

I got an idea. 💡

 

Why don’t you take a look at my ultimate newbie guide where I detail the affiliate marketing concept and show you how to build a $6000 a month affiliate marketing blog in less than twelve months.

It will teach you everything you need to know about affiliate marketing and show you the exact step-by-step blueprint you need to follow to get your first successful affiliate blog up and running.

 

However, don’t let the guide fool you. 🙂

 

This business model does not promise a steady profit right away. Just like any other business, you have to spend time improving your content, managing your blog, and promoting your desired product.

Oh! and by the way, you can choose the type of product you want to share with the audience on your blog. That means that you are not forced to promote things that you are not keen on availing.

The blog you’re on now is the brainchild of affiliate marketing, and I built it intending to help like-minded individuals achieve their personal successes.

 

deefunnels.com is an ideal example of what and AM blog should look like.

 

I know what you’re thinking – “this guy is just showing off.

 

But, NO, I’m not. My goal is not to praise my blog. (it is, a little bit 😄)

What I’m trying to do instead is show you that it’s a real possibility to earn a full-time income online without having any special skills. (me in a nutshell)

 

Truth be told, I used to suck at this. (like really suck at this) 👎 💩

 

I didn’t know anything about building and managing sites. Still, one day all of that changed because I accidentally came across an affiliate marketing community that changed my life forever.The Genesis Investing System ReviewThe community I’m referring to goes by the name of Wealthy Affiliate, and it represents the same platform that gave me all the training and tools to prosper, innovate, and ultimately succeed in this ridiculous online world.

 

And do you know what the best part is? It can help you do the same. 🤩

 

I don’t want to bother you too much. Contrary to that, I want to advise you to take advantage of their free starter membership (lasts forever) and see whether it is something that you too want to pursuit.

 

I’m a proud premium member of Wealthy Affiliate. 💯 💯 💯

Together we strive to provide the same opportunities that we had and train people to become more confident in the online world and achieve financial independence through the creation of digital assets.

 

And oooh boy do we train them well. 🤯 😎

 

Some of the veteran members inside this platform are earning more than four, five figures of passive income online, while others (like yourself) are just starting and celebrating their first $100 days.

Don’t believe me? See it for yourself.

  1. I’d like to know about your affiliate marketing program.

  2. Hey Gorjan, well, I learned something today. In the past I have invested money on the stock market. And I also crowdfunded one of my books. I used Indiegogo for that.

    If I understand you correctly this Genesis is a combination of the two.

    Nowadays I only invest in funds. Dull and boring, but more or less safe.

    Unfortunately your article didn’t pull me across the line of trying to invest in something else. 🙂 But I do agree with you that affiliate marketing is a safe way to work on money goals. Personally I also find it more interesting than either investing or crowdfunding, because of the bigger sense of control I have.

    1. You most certainly would have more control over your affiliate marketing business than you would with your investing or crowdfunding for that matter.

      Don’t mind me asking, how pleased are with your fund invests? Are you profitable, and if yes, would you mind sharing a few pointers with me on how I can get started?

      I’ve wanted to invest in funds for some time now, but I never met the right person to introduce me to the entire scheme.

      I just sent you an e-mail, and would greatly appreciate it if you can take two minutes of your time to answer a couple of questions of mine.

  3. Hey Gorjan,

    Thanks for this highly informative rundown on what crowdfunding and particularly Crowdability is all about.

    I have often wondered how to get in on private investing. And now you have not only busted this shrouded arena of investing open, you have given me a path to exploring it through Crowdability.

    Great stuff.

    1. Hey, Femi!

      I sincerely hope you enjoyed my review, my friend.

      Make sure you get back at me and tell me how it went. 😊

  4. Hi,
    Thank heavens for your review. I have given up on genesis as a scam. I don’t know … it looked scammy to me. But I think u are right, it is a good crowdsourcing platform. I am familiar with Kickstarter and a few others.
    Thanks for the info.
    Love,
    Aps

  5. This field and the world of investing can be pretty intimidating for a lot of people. And you’re right, a lot are looking into it during the pandemic.
    We need articles like this to educate people and to provide honest reviews and opinions about things so that they can come to their own decisions.
    Thanks for the insight!

    1. We sure do (need people to provide honest reviews and opinions), especially when most of the reviews you see nowadays are either fake or heavily affiliated.

      I sincerely hope that I was able to help, Andrea, and please feel free to reach out to me if there’s anything more I can do.

      As always, take care and stay safe!

  6. Hey, mate. Thanks a lot for sharing this review. I bumped into Genesis Investing System the other day, and to be honest, it seemed like a scam to me right from the start. But as they say, never judge a book by its cover. Therefore, here I am, reading your review and I have to say a good job.

    I’ve heard of Kickstarter and Patreon, and a few other crowdfunding schemes so far. However, Crowdability was an unknown to me until now. Judging by your research, it seems like a legit place to learn more about crowdfunding.

    On the other hand, your last recommendation has caught my eye and I’m going to see what it is about. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!

    1. I’m so pleased to hear that you liked my review, Ivan. Feel free to wander around my blog cause I’m sure other posts might interest you as well.

      As for my recommendation, make sure you check it out. WA is currently offering a forever free trial period, and that will allow you to view the first nine lessons. (Which gives you more than enough time to figure out whether its something you want to be a part of)

      Also, do not hesitate to reach out to me if you need any help. Same as you, I’m a caring person and would nothing more than to help you out.

  7. I have heard of crowdfunding but didn’t really understand it. I only know the term from those raising money to help fund medical treatments etc. The crowdability Genesis investing system sounds ok. I’m sure those interested in investing in crowdfunding companies would learn something. I personally have never been interested in investing, but absolutely passionate about affiliate marketing! Your step by step guide sounds interesting and I agree that Wealthy Affiliate is a far better and safe option for those interested in making money online:)

    1. Hey, Kathy.

      First of all, I’m so happy to see you on my blog and hope you’re doing well. Secondly, I would like to ask you whether you’re an affiliate yourself and if yes, would you mind sharing your experience with me?

      I would love nothing more than to help you out if you’re a beginner, and would also cherish you immensely if you allowed me to pick up your knowledge if you’re a more seasoned affiliate.
