Today Im looking at the Passive Print System by Adam Nolan


Up until a yesterday I had never heard of ‘The Passive Print System”. You see last night I was sitting at my desk working at writing code for my next software and I got hit up on Facebook by a mutual friend who I had never really spoken to before. She asked me to take a look at this new training product that was coming out. As Im always interested in new products I agreed to take a look at it.

“The Passive Print System” is a 94 page E-Book that covers creating and selling memberships to ‘news letters’ at a low cost monthly fee. Normally I personally dont like reading E-Books but frankly I was a little frustrated with a coding problem last night and welcomed an excuse to stop working on it.

So what exactly is selling memberships to ‘news letters’? Well the concept is simple and based around two givens. First every one of us has a skill. I dont care who you are, where you live, you have some skill. Be it playing the piano, cooking, software development, gardening, internet marketing, whatever I firmly believe and agree that everyone has some skill, something that they not only love, but that they are quite good at. The second given is that the internet is a huge place. Im mean really huge! WikiPedia reports that there are over 2.9 billion people online, with most of them from developed countries.

This income system focuses on building leads, pushing them through a funnel, and eventually getting them to the point of selling them a monthly newsletter membership. The key is that the memberships are low cost ($5-$6). Because the cost is so low your retention rate is very high and you keep getting those monthly payments which quickly add up to a decent amount.

The training is very well written and covers everything from getting traffic to creating your news letter, to build traffic, to getting subscribers. Its really not just training its a ‘business plan’. Also I liked that it does not just tell you what to do, it explains the ‘why’ as well. This is important because if you understand the why you are getting the knowledge and understanding to go beyond the training as you begin to build your business.

Now that is the one thing I really want to drive home though. This is called the “Passive Print System’. But it for sure is not passive. Though it is far from a full time 40 hour a week job. I can see someone spending a couple of hours a day M-F on this and doing well. But I just want to make it clear that this is a blue print for a real business. Its not push button instant cash product. This is good though because push button instant cash products are nonsense. Where a real / solid business plan is something you want to have.

I actually have some experience with low cost payments. I have software products (my skill is software) that I had sold memberships access to for a low cost back when I was first getting started in IM and working on the Warrior Forum. Here is a payment history from one of them:


Notice this person has been paying without fail for 20 months now. Those little $4.95 payments really add up. Also I have dozens of payments like this which come in every month. At this point I earn several hundred dollars each and every month without doing much work at all.

Something that came to mind when when I was reading the E-Book. Though it focuses on delivering your content via email newsletters you could just as easily start a membership site, or even a closed Facebook group if you like.

Since the internet is so big it does not matter  how much of a niche your skill is there are bound to be (by pure statistical numbers) a lot of people interested in that same niche. I mean even if your skill was something as obscure as ‘armature HAM radio ‘, something that only 1 in 50,000 people might be interested in that still means that there are statistically around 58,000 active internet users interested in your topic. If you could get 1% of them to pay you a $5 membership fee thats $2900 a month. And that’s for a very specific obscure niche. For most people the potential will be much greater. I have no doubt that everyone has something of value they can teach others.

So what kind of income can you expect to earn? Well thats going to depend on how much effort you want to spend on building up your subscribers. I will say this though. I have a rental property that I bought a few years ago. I spent $42,000 on it and after taxes and expenses I earn about $500 a month net income from it. I can see anyone earning $500 from this system without much effort and without needing to invest $42,000 to get started. I also believe there is a good potential to earn a lot more if you choose. Thats whats cool about this. Anyone who is willing to follow the system can get started quickly without a huge cash investment, there is a very low entry barrier.

So whats my final thought on “The Passive Print System”? Its well written and a good investment for anyone who wants to start an online business. If your looking for a push button make instant money thing, then you should pass and keep looking. But if your looking for a well defined blue print to start an actual online business then this one is well worth considering.


A quick note about the reviews I do on this site. The product vendors give me access to their products for free in order for me to do my review. However I make no promises to them regarding the results of my tests or what I will write in my review. Should you click a link that takes you to a sales page for a paid product for sale this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to invest in it.

    Thanks for the review Brett. I only welcome the no push-button product! 🙂

    This is real and a very workable system.


      Im glad to hear that. I have been making my living online for a looong time and I still have not found a real push button system that is not nonsense. However working online is still the best way to go. Work as much or as little as you want, when you want, from where ever you want. You cant beat it.

    I was just reading his sales page a minute ago, I almost clicked the buy button but decided to wait a bit. Then I find your review in my email! LOL
    Price is a little high for me, but I think it might be a good investment.
    Thanks for the review!


      Im a little confused Gary .. you where going to buy it but decided to wait a bit. You read my positive review and then decided not to buy it at all? So my good review convinced you to not buy it? Also just a FYI .. if something is a good investment, you should not let price bother you, since its a good way to spend your money. I think this is going for around $20 right now. Your correct that’s a $20 bill well spent. Where else are you going to get a solid business plan for the price of mid grade supper?


    I bought this WSO about 6 mths ago and have been trying to implement it ever since. I can tell you it ain’t so easy to get signups. You name it, I’ve tried it, FB Ads, Google Ads etc. I also tried to give it away and didn’t work either.
    I don’t want to sound negative here, and the business model is one that has worked well pre-internet days, but it ain’t so easy online.
    I’m not saying it can’t be done, just saying that in my experience it requires a lot of effort, plus something else that I don’t know about?


      Im not sure what you mean by “You tried to give it away” .. you tried to give something away to get a signup? Thats what you should have been doing in the first place. You dont try to sell people something to get a signup. Also just a FYI .. the ‘SqueezePage” is a very time tested way to get signups. Its not something that these guys just invented. Its a very solid method. Here is the thing .. you are saying you tried ‘everything’, did you consider that your free offer was not good enough or that you squeeze page copy is poorly done? Believe me when I say that to get signups the squeeze page is very solid.

      If you are talking about getting signups to a monthly membership then you also have to consider this. 1) You free offer might not have been good enough.. this is important, your free giveaway from when you initially get their email must be TOP SHELF so you impress them. 2nd) What your offering for your membership might not be good enough or have bad copy etc.


    $20?? Now if it was $497 yes, a little pricey but $20?? Right before my son graduated from Cal Statae University, he was checking franchises and he almost considered buying one called “The Coffee…” something for $30K for 2 areas sectioned off by zip codes. The more sections you buy, the higher the price.

    The business plan is almost identical except you sell advertising space to businesses within your own local area. The francise sends you the monthly newsletter and it’s your job to pre-sell ad space, get it printed and deliver them to places like Starbucks, waiting rooms, laundry mats, restaurants, anywhere people are. Needless to say, he passed and opened a jewelry store instead.

    What if the price was only $20 for all the areas he wanted? He still would have passed. He was right too. The money is in gold!!!

    Brett, I have to say the replies are as enlightening as your reviews… I too am surprised with the comment of $20 as being too pricey. Over the years, I have paid enough to buy a car, maybe 2 cars… I had PLRs to many products, that after getting the bugs out and the rewries, for spelling and grammar, I found most were not worth putting on the market…. Yes they could have brought a quick “Buck”, but my name and reputation is still Priceless… Because I have for years been a consumer advocate, I could not in good conscience, take advantage of the public… Yes I know what P.T. Barnum would say.. “A Sucker is born Everyday” … Or the Old Latin saying, “Let the Buyer beware!” caveat empto.
