Kindle Triangulation scam?

Video doesn't reveal anything because it's a photo, just testing
So I see the hottest thing online today (at least in my circle of me) is talk of this Kindle Triangulation Course by James J. Jones. I don’t know why his (if that’s even his blog) just jumps out as spammy to me, since it only has basically one long page with lots of comments all coming in initially on the same day.

I Googled Kindle Triangulation and found it interesting how that one website has a photo showing up as if it’s the thumbnail of an actual video, so I wanted to experiment with how they did that by putting it in this post.

I guess he could be legit — because even though I only see one book by James J. Jones on, I know he — like plenty of us authors — sometimes prefer to publish under pen names.

His Kindle Triangulation Course seems like some of the same stuff Ty Cohen was talking about on his webinar.

I don’t even want to spend the $7 let alone $97 when it goes up to that much. Heck, I spent most of today creating comments on PostLoop to make $5 cash that should be in my PayPal soon — and it wasn’t quick to create all those 60-something comments, so I’m really aware of not wanting to waste any money on scams.

I just used TinEye to find his photo and I see it’s the same guy listed as James J. Jones on the earn 1 k a day seminar where this is written about his internet prowess:

[Learn] how he convinces an army of “ready to buy” customers to tell him exactly what they want him to sell them.

So there you go.

I don’t know…maybe I’ll feel differently and drop 7 bucks tomorrow on his stuff before I write my next Kindle book.

We’ll see what the morning brings.

I guess I’m so jaded against some of the internet marketers who are better at selling smoke and mirrors instead of actually just making the money they make doing what they claim works so fricking well. At times I think their marketing hype is what works better than their actual products.

In the meantime, if you own the Kindle Triangulation Course, let me know how it’s working for you — or if you think it’s a scam.

  1. Hey Perrin – Thanks for reading!

    I don’t know if the Kindle Triangulation program uses PLR – Private Label Rights works, which can be good I guess, based on the author. There’s a woman named Tiffany something and I believe people say her work is good. But other PLR writers might just be recycling old stuff.

    Also, I know Ty Cohen hires folks like stay-at-home moms and retirees to write his Kindle books, so there are ways that people can get their Kindle books written without writing a word themselves. I prefer to write my own Kindle books, so it’s not a big thing for me.

    I haven’t tried the Kindle Triangulation thing, but let me know if you do or know someone who does. I’m just not big on folks who like to make more money off of selling false hype and dreams to newbies online than they do from actual work. In my opinion, if someone is making $100k per month off of their methods, why charge $997 or whatever to show newbies how to do it? But then again, I understand while people don’t want the market flooded with good secrets.

    That’s the thing — as long as they are good secrets that actually work — not pipe dreams and fake hype designed to sell out newbies just trying to make money online.

  2. Hi Paula,
    Just wondering if you found out anything else about this Kindle Triangulation thing? A friend signed me up for his emails and course (as a gift), but something bothered me. He claims to show folks how to create and upload their own Kindle Books *without writing a word themselves.* As a published author (like you), this concept troubles me. I also read your post with the link to the NPR segment on stolen works. I was curious to know whether this James J Jones fellow is working the same type of literary piracy scam. Thanks for writing such an informative and useful blog!
