Product Name: Instant Payday Network
Product Owner: Jeff Buchanan
Advertised Price: Free
What Is It?
Get paid to try and review products for big name companies.
Most of your money is going to be made bringing people into the IPDN program, not by actually by trying these products so I would classify this as an MLM pyramid scheme.
Before You Buy:
I'll admit that the introduction video seems honest and the presenter seems likeable. In a very down-to-earth presentation style, Jeff Buchanan explains that this program is free. What he fails to clearly tell you is that most of your money will not be made by testing products, but by referring people to this ‘business opportunity'. This is the first red flag that this program is not exactly as advertised.
Because this program and its creator are also mixed up with the Empower Network pyramid scheme, as well as provided a misleading presentation of what you will be doing to make money, I intended to give it a zero. However, Jeff is a likable presenter so I boosted it to 20. It wasn't the worst presentation I've seen.
What I Liked:
As I said before, the video is very honest and he even mentions the fact that you will not be a ‘success' overnight. There were not a lot of BS hyped promotions, and there were no upsells. I was actually able to access the program for free. I think this could be a potential way to make some money online even though it's not really a sustainable business model. If you DO do this, I would not do it through Instant Payday Network, but find the sources yourself.
What I Didn't Like:
Most importantly I didn't like the fact that this is actually just a secret promotion for Empower Network. If you haven't heard of this program, it's currently the 2nd lowest rated program on my site despite its immense popularity. The lowest rated program is called the Prosperity Formula, but the review will not be posted until tomorrow.
Within two days after signing up I had received over 10 emails from Jeff Buchanan and his MLM cronies promoting other systems. There is a saying in the business, ‘You need to love your list.' The idea behind is that if you treat people on your 'email list' well, they will turn into valuable customers for your business. This was not ‘love', it was email rape. It's a good thing I didn't use my real email address.
After digging around, I got quite lost in a few different cross promotions from Jeff and his buddies. I cannot recommend any product related to him.
* Also note that there are many fake reviews posted on YouTube. Notice how no one really tells you what the product is or what you are getting into. They say stuff like “click the link below to find out”. This is either because they do not understand what they are promoting or have not tried the program long enough to explain it very well or give any real world examples of how they made money.
[Update] Another thing I really dislike is the swarms of promoters that troll my blog trying to prove me wrong. This product is junk in my opinion, and is certainly not worth anyone's time or effort (or money if you count the back-end upsells).
Who Is This Product For:
Getting paid to try products and services is something you could do as a hobby or for a few extra dollars on the site. Not all programs pay, and most don't pay very well. This is not a way to make ‘good money' on the internet. Even if you decide that you would like to do something like this, the Instant Payday Network is not something you want to get involved in.
[Update] There was some confusion in the comments about what IPDN actually has you do, but I've double checked. “Trying products” is vague, so I don't mean that these fortune 500 companies will be sending you cool little gadgets to test out. Whatever they have you doing will be 100% online. Also, I only mean that this is what they tell you you will be doing. Most of the money in this program is made by reselling the ‘opportunity' as I mentioned above.
Instant Payday Network is a shady product. They're sales page is over hyped, and they do not deliver high quality content. What's worse is that they make you jump through hoops and get you involved with email marketing lists that try to promote even MORE products to you. Avoid companies like this.
I really don't want to ruin an unbiased review by recommending a service, but I would be doing you a disservice if I didn't tell you how I started my business. It's a training center, NOT a get rich quick scheme, and NOT a simple PDF guide or series of videos. It's a community of REAL people just like you, and it's currently ranked #1 of all my reviews.
Whatever type of product you decide to promote, it's important to own your own website to grow your business.
Parties only work if you have a network of friends with money in their pockets. Network marketing only works if your friends are interested in joining business opportunities.
With a website you can reach the entire world, and only promote great products to people interested in what you have to say. Plus, you open up doors to multiple streams of revenue like affiliate sales, ad click revenue, paid advertising, and even selling your own digital products.
