Viral Franchise combines two separate ideas, and they both sound appealing in their own right. For example, being part of a franchise sounds like it would be a good way to make money. Franchising is a real business model, so this phrasing also makes the company sound legitimate. At the same time, the term viral suggests that you can get popular fast, and by extension, earn money fast.
But none of that is realistic.
Right from the start, there are a few things about this site that are very suspicious. The first is these counters here:
We’re meant to believe that more than 1 billion people saw the site last month alone? That seems incredibly unrealistic, especially as most people probably haven’t even heard of the website. Counters like this are completely unrealistic, because the site owners can put whatever they like there.
In fact, the counter for Current Month Impressions barely the entire time I was on there. If it was accurate, you would increase that number to increase pretty rapidly. After all, there is a bit less than 44,000 minutes in a month, so we should be seeing the number increasing multiple times every minute.
Even the movement it did make was completely meaningless. As soon as I opened the same page in a different window, that counter had magically reset. It is simply nothing more than an algorithm that counts upwards based on how long you are on the website.
The introduction video is another thing. It looks really professional at first, until you realize that it is interspersed with really basic clip art images.
Even ignoring the clip art, the video itself doesn’t mean that much either. It was probably purchased off Fiverr, as there are hundreds if not thousands of sellers on that site that offer introduction videos – many of which look very professional.
You can also see a number of ads on the site by looking at the sidebar and the bottom of the website. They aren’t exactly encouraging though and seem to be pretty low quality. Take this one for example, which really doesn’t even make sense.
So, what? The site is licensed to make you money? Licensed by whom? Even if there was such a license, I highly doubt just a single company would have it. The whole thing is just ridiculous. The quality of the ads is a real big indication of what you are letting yourself in for. Those ads are connected to the income opportunity, which I’ll get to in a minute.
So, none of these aspects scream ‘professional’. They are all different ways to manipulate and to make the site seem like it is better than it actually is. Which begs the question. What is it?
What Viral Franchise Offers
The site promotes itself as a ‘niche advertising opportunity’, although they don’t focus all that much on explaining what that phrase actually means. All that really suggests is that you can make money through advertising.
I don’t like how little information there is saying what site is all about. Not only is there hardly anything, but some of the information that is there is incredibly hard to follow, like this:
One thing is that the company doesn’t have any real product – just the advertising, and honestly, that isn’t much to boast about. Based on the website, the advertising that you pay for is those little ads on the site and the bottom of the site. That’s horrible. You’re only going to get traffic from people visiting Viral Franchise and that isn’t likely to be very good for your own site.
Making money comes from recruiting other people. In this way, the company seems to follow a MLM scheme, where people earn money from those that they recruit into the company – down multiple tiers.
There seems to be two different things to earn money from. The first is membership to the site itself and the second is booster lead sales. The latter case seems to be something that you buy into and then get a certain amount of money back – but again, the site isn’t clear.
There may also be a way to make money from the ads directly – such as by clicking on other people’s ads or having them click on yours, but I’m just guessing. The detail on the site just isn’t enough to know.
To be honest, I don’t see how anyone would make money from the site. As with most MLMs, making money is all about getting others to join. It would be almost impossible to convince someone to join this site. There is basically nothing appealing about it and it doesn’t even seem real.
Making Money Online
Here’s the thing. There are real ways to make money online and there are a whole lot of scams out there. One of the very first criteria for a good approach is that it should make sense. If you can’t understand exactly what you are supposed to be doing and how it is going to earn you money, there’s a good chance that someone is trying to take advantage of you.
There is simply no need to follow sites like Viral Franchise. There are so many ways to make money online where you have complete control over all of the processes. An approach that is much easier to understand is affiliate marketing. This is a fantastic approach for earning money, where you don’t have to try and recruit anyone at all. It's how I earn money online, and I can teach you how to do it!
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.
