I was cleaning out my spam inbox today looking for stuff to review, and 12 Minute Payday came up. It seemed like something a little different than what I usually review, so I decided to take the time to watch a few minutes of the introduction video.
I was definitely wrong.
12 Minute Payday is the same old song and dance about easy money from a new-and-never-heard-of ultimate money making system that a really-nice-guy is going to give to us for free.
Hm. Sounds legit (sarcasm).
I've seen stuff like this before, and there were some very clear signals about what's going to be happening behind the scenes.
What You'll Be Doing
From the disclaimer at the bottom of the sales page, it's clear that we will be selling other people's products. This is affiliate marketing. It's a legit way to make money online, in fact, it's what I do. 95% of affiliate marketers that associate themselves with this type of crap however spend their days pushing “make money products” like what we are seeing in 12 Minute Payday.
This is not the only product out there that shows you pictures of cars and mansions, then tells you it's just going to cost you $9 to learn how to get all that stuff.
Ok, so you'll be promoting make money products.
It also mentions that you'll be capturing people's emails, so we know that you'll have an autoresponder set up and will be sending promotions via email.
This is nothing new.
We are also told that we will have a website set up instantly, with no hosting fees. That means we will likely be using a subdomain and receiving a cookie-cutter website template.
Your job then will be to drive traffic to the website.
Subdomains of spammy services with zero content on them will not rank in Google, so you will probably be driving traffic to the site with media buys (paid advertisements places on other sites), PPC (like Google ads), and or probably solo ads (paying someone to send your offer to their email list).
If all that stuff is confusing, just know that you will have to pay to get traffic to your website.
Is It New?
Plain and simple, no. This has been done a million times before with Auto Affiliate X and Freebie Money Printer (not covered in the review, but part of the system). And though it's unclear what exactly you'll be promoting, it's very likely that you'll actually be promoting 12 Minute Payday.
From the screenshot above, you can see that 12MPD is associated with a product called Commission Fast Start. I did some digging, and found that this was released by a guy named (supposedly) “Justin James”. Here's what one reviewer had to say about Commission fast start:
Sound familiar? I didn't watch the whole pitch from 12MPD so not sure if it's supposed to be from the same guy, but from what I can see, there seems to be a connection.
The problems with 12MPD and all similar products are many. Here are the main three to worry about:
- You are sending spammy offers you don't understand
- You can't get free traffic to the site because there's no content
- You know nothing about paid ads so will have to spend money to learn
Honestly guys, it's nice to believe that there is an easy way to make money and the internet will solve your financial woes, but be smart about it. Making money online is possible, but you need training, support, and most of all you need to understand that for you to make money, someone has to spend money.
The only online business training center that's actually worth your time and money is Wealthy Affiliate. It's where I learned to start my first affiliate website, and it's were I send newbies that ask me, “How do you do it?” I personally provide 1-on-1 support so I can vouch for the quality of what you receive. There are also hundreds of other members that are just hangin' out, talkin' business. It's your best chance of success.
