What is it?
Screw 95 is an online video course created by Jay Wessman (aka the lazy ass stoner) that promises easy to follow instructions that will teach you how to make money online through affiliate marketing. Screw 95 is a way of saying screw the 9 to 5 job.
My Personal Thoughts
On YouTube, Jay has posted a few YouTube videos that give a bit of a taste of his online marketing video course. His videos are surprisingly well organized, and easy to follow, especially coming from a lazy stoner.
But are his methods effective?
His method of viral marketing through social media can be extremely effective when they are used in the right ways.
After all the main goal of affiliate marketing is to get the products that you are promoting out in front of as many people as possible. And what better way to do that than through social media.
Will it work for you?
While working online, one thing that I have come to realize is that content is the key to getting your website ranked in Google, and to keep it ranked.
Screw 95 tends to focus more on the getting backlinks to your website in order to get them to rank.
Although putting your website out there on social media will get it recognized, the backlinks that are provided add much less weight when it comes to ranking in Google.
Despite this fact, building large social media accounts, and sharing your content on it will bring traffic and ultimately affiliate sales, if you are reaching the right audience for your products.
The course comes with 5 stages that walk you step-by-step through everything that it takes to create a niche website, and get it bringing in money.
The 5 steps include:
Stage 1: Choosing a Niche
This is honestly one of the sections that I believe this course excels in. Choosing the right niche can completely make or break an affiliate marketing campaign. Jay goes into detail about how to find a niche that has a big enough audience, but is not overly saturated with competition.
Stage 2: Setting Up a Website
Jay does a great job of teaching how to set up websites, and building them in a way that will attract viewers, and getting them to click on affiliate links.
Stage 3: Adding Products
A lot of affiliate marketers who are just starting out may not realize how many different types of products can be promoted for any niche. Jay does a good job of showing you how to think outside of the box and find products to promote that can make you extra money.
Stage 4: Dominating Search
This is the part of Jay’s technique that may be considered controversial to many affiliate marketers. He uses social media in order to obtain backlinks which some believe will lead to higher rankings in search engines. In the past, backlinks could be considered an effective way to rank, but since Google updated their algorithms, it seems as if this method has lost some weight. Yet, I still believe that it is worth a try, as long as you put good content on your site.
Stage 5: Dominating Social Media
This is also something that Jay has absolutely mastered. What’s the first social media site that comes to your mind? The second? The 6th? For just about any social media website that you can think of, Jay has a great technique that you can use to amass a crazy number of followers in incredibly small amounts of time.
When you purchase Screw 95, you also get 3 bonuses with it.
- Scaling up – Gives you information about creating multiple niche websites, and leveling up your affiliate business.
- Case Studies – An amazingly helpful bonus where Jay shows you his actual niche websites. This makes picking a niche so much easier because it gives you a starting place, and a better idea of what to look for in a niche.
- The Private Forum – Support is something that is important to having an online business, and this is where you can get it.
Support and Community
One thing that I know for sure is that the support of others is something that I could not succeed without. The life of an affiliate marketer is full of small unique issues that can be very difficult to solve.
Having someone, or a community of people who you can ask for help from, can make your life so much easier.
This is one thing that Screw 95 has, in theory. What do I mean by that? Well it appears as if Jay Wessman has “disappeared” from the online scene. Where has he gone?
After doing some research, I found a forum where Jay answers that question himself. He says that he is working on bettering his marketing techniques and that he plans on making a comeback with a new addition of Screw 95. Which I personally hope is true.
Screw 95 comes with a complete cost of $97, with no monthly payments. Which is a relatively low price for what he claims to offer.
Is Screw 95 it worth it? Or is it a Scam?
At the end of the day, Jay Wessman, the “Lazy Ass Stoner” gives easy to follow, step-by-step tutorials, that have a good chance of making you money if you follow them. So my final verdict is that Screw 95 is Worth a try!
Although it may not have absolutely all of the information that you need in order to make a full time living online, I believe it is a great resource to use in your arsenal of affiliate marketing tools.

My #1 Recommendation
I do recommend giving Screw 95 a try, but it still falls short of my number 1 recommendation, Wealthy Affiliate.
At Wealthy Affiliate, you get everything that Screw 95 offers, but with better support, free websites, hosting, and best of all, it is free to try.
