It’s 2017, and many of us are getting on board with our New Years resolutions. One common resolution people have is to find new ways to make some extra money…this includes making money online.
This is also usually the time, unfortunately, when unsuspecting people get sucked in by “gurus” that claim to help you make crazy amounts of money in a short period of time with their “simple system”. One such program is My Millionaire Mentor.
The term “millionaire” stood out to me, so I decided to take a look at this program and see if it’s something that could really help you be a millionaire. So, is My Millionaire Mentor legit?…Let’s find out! Continue reading
If you’re a regular user of Paid To Click (PTC) websites such as Clixsense, Neobux etc, then you definitely need to check out this app! I came across it recently and was quite intrigued to see how it worked and if it can actually help speed up my earnings. Well, I gave it a go and in this Buxenger Review I want to answer the question “What Is Buxenger?”, share my results, as well as share my final thoughts on the application.
Price: Free and Premium: $2/month, $20/year or $50 lifetime
Owner: Valeria Denisova
Buxenger is a FREE app that helps speed up your earnings from PTC websites. Essentially it helps you organise and monitor your PTC accounts in one easy to view screen, and it speeds up the process of viewing ads from multiple PTC websites.
With Buxenger you can view the stats from all your PTC websites in one place. As you can see from the screenshot below, I can see the stats for my PTC accounts with Clixsense, ScarletClicks, BuxP etc.
Buxenger is so easy to use.
Firstly you need to sign up to Buxenger here. Once you’ve signed up you can add the extension to your internet browser, then begin adding any PTC accounts that you currently have. The first site I added was Clixsense (see my review here).
You can find out how to add new PTC sites as you continue reading this page.
When you’ve managed to add a few sites to the Buxenger app you can begin using it to earn.
There will be a small button at the top of your browser which you can click anytime you want to use Buxenger (sometimes Buxenger logs you out after a few days, so you may need to type buxenger.com into your search bar to log back in again and continue using, however this doesn’t take long).
Clicking the icon will take you to your Buxenger account where you can view all your PTC stats as well as your account stats, such as the number of referrals you have, and any affiliate earnings.
Take a look at this video below to see how Buxenger works and how to use it.
It’s super easy to add new PTC accounts to Buxenger, which I will show you step by step using the screenshots below.
Step 1: Select “Add Website”
Step 2: Choose a website to add
Step 3: Add your existing account details or create a new account within Buxenger
Step 4: If creating a new account, set up account and select next
Step 5: Return to your Buxenger back office and your new account, with stats, should be added successfully.
You can see how easy it is to add a new PTC account to the Buxenger app. You can add any existing accounts you may have, or you can create a whole new account right within the Buxenger application.
If one of your Buxenger referrals decides to join that PTC site, they’ll automatically be your referral.
Buxenger currently works on Google Chrome, Firefox and Opera.

With the Buxenger app you get to increase your chances of gaining referrals. Take a look at the video below, it’s quite interesting how it works.
I’ve managed to get referrals to join Buxenger, and when they join new PTC sites, they will also be my direct referral for that site. It’s an easier way to build your referral downline and improve your earnings with PTC websites.
This screenshot above shows how I’m able to gain referrals to PTC websites just by referring users to Buxenger. It works for Built-in sites that are listed like Clixsense, as well as other PTC sites I’ve added manually, such as Neobux.
Ultimately, you’re better off referring people to Buxenger and then adding your PTC sites to gain direct referrals for them. You can select your own featured sites, so your referrals are more likely to join those.
Also, if you’re a premium member, and your Buxenger referrals sign up to premium, you get to earn at least $1 per referral for every month they are an active premium member.
It’s completely free to join and you can try out the Premium membership with a 10-day free trial.
Easy to use
Buxenger is very easy to use. You can create new PTC accounts without leaving the Buxenger app, and you can keep track of the money you’re earning too.
Speeds up your PTC earnings
With Buxenger, you are able to view ads directly one after the other, which means you spend less time switching through different sites or different tabs, and more time earning money.
Can gain more referrals, much faster
The Buxenger referral system means you can increase your referral downline, just by referring more people to Buxenger.
Can upgrade for as little as $2 a month
You can upgrade to premium for only $2 a month. If you feel Buxenger will help you earn more with PTC sites, then it’s definitely worth the investment.
Need to add a browser extension
This isn’t really a bad thing, but there are some people that may not be comfortable with a browser extension. At least it doesn’t require any software download.
Doesn’t work on Safari
If you’re a Mac user (like me), you may only have the Safari browser and unfortunately Buxenger doesn’t work on Safari. However, it’s quite simple to download Google Chrome, and you can add the app from there.
Not all PTC sites are supported
Although some sites are not fully supported, you can still add them to the Buxenger playlist and view ads with the ad viewer. The main issue may be that the earnings won’t show up on Buxenger automatically. However, the earnings will still show up in your regular PTC account, and you can manually add in your current earnings onto Buxenger if you wish.
As you can see from the screen shot below, I manually added my PTC earnings for Offernation and Neobux. (Note: Offernation isn’t really a PTC site, it’s primarily a survey and “get paid to” site, but you can still earn some money by clicking/viewing ads).
Yes, Buxenger is definitely safe to use.
There’s no need to download any software, it’s just an extension to your internet browser. Also, PTC sites are not against people using Buxenger as it is not an autoclicker. It’s simply an app that organises all your PTC sites in one place, in an easy to view screen. You still have to manually view ads and click captcha images, but it helps speed up the process and increases your earning potential.
Take a look at the screenshot from a Clixsense thread. The Clixsense admin has even said that they will be working with Buxenger.
This message was written in December 2015, and 1 year later they are still supported on Buxenger.
Furthermore, the owner of Buxenger has added to the thread. The owner is clearly happy to answer any questions users have and ease people’s minds about the app.

This app is for people who use PTC websites often and are looking to improve and increase their earnings. It’s also for people who want to get more referrals for their PTC accounts.
If you’re not interested in earning from PTC sites, then this app will not be for you.
When you sign up you’re automatically a free member, and if you choose, you can try out the premium membership for 10 days for free.
The best deal would be either the yearly plan or the lifetime plan as they have the best savings. However, if you go through the trial and would still like to continue as a premium member without spending too much, then I’d recommend the monthly plan. You’d have to pay for at least 3 months, so $6 in total. Overall, I think that’s a small amount to pay if you feel this program could really help you improve your earnings with PTC sites.
With a free account, you’re limited to automatic stats on just 5 sites and you can only get PTC referrals on 5 sites through Buxenger. However, upgrading to premium has a lot more benefits and will cost as little as $2 a month.
With premium you get to:
Although I haven’t had much need to contact support, there is a “Contact Us” section on the website where you can fill out a support form. It seems there are also plans to create a forum within the app, so that’ll be another form of support and contact.
So, what is Buxenger?…Well, it’s the perfect app for anyone who wants to speed up their PTC earnings. If you’re a regular PTC user then you definitely need to get this app. Although I don’t really use PTC websites, I’ve used them more because of this app, and it’s been a nice way to earn a little extra money while I’m watching the tv or just on the phone for example. It makes things so much easier and faster, and I’m glad an app like this exists.
It’s a little investment that has the potential to really improve and increase my earnings with PTC sites. I’m looking forward to seeing how things go and updating my results within a few months or so.
Would I recommend Buxenger? Yes, if you’re already earning from PTC sites, you might as well speed up your earnings with a tool like Buxenger, and get more referrals in the process.
What are your thoughts on Buxenger?
Do you think it can help you improve your earnings?
Would you use Buxenger now to help make more money with PTC sites?
Share your responses in the section below, as well as any questions you might have. I’ll be happy to respond!
…and don’t forget to share this review with all your PTC friends.
P.S. If you’re interested in working from home and earning enough to do so, then I’d personally recommend starting an online business. The earning potential is much greater and it could mean that you get to really earn a living from home. If you’re interested then please feel free to check out my #1 recommended online business training…the best part is you can try it out for FREE.
UPDATE July 2017: Unfortunately, you can no longer earn via the Paid To Click (PTC) ads and Clixgrid methods.
Clixsense is a Paid To Click (PTC) site that’s been running since 2007 and pays it’s users for completing different tasks online. Some tasks include viewing ads, surveys, playing games and completing offers. It’s very easy to get started with Clixsense as it’s free to join and simple to create an account. Once you’ve signed up you can begin earning right away.
You’re probably wondering if you can really make money online with Clixsense, and the answer is Yes, you can…however, I wouldn’t want you to quit your day job as the the amount you earn isn’t going to make you rich in any way. For the most part you’ll be earning pennies to view website ads and complete tasks. Although it doesn’t have high payouts, it is a genuine way to make some money online, and I will discuss the multiple ways to earn below.
The main way people earn from Clixsense is by viewing ads. It’s the fastest and simplest way to earn money on the site and ads usually last between 5-60 seconds.
The length of the ad will determine how much you will earn. Below is a breakdown of the earning potential
5 seconds – $0.001
15 seconds – $0.005
30 seconds $0.01
60 seconds – $0.02
Clixgrid is a grid game whereby you click on random squares within the grid in hopes of winning up to $10. With each square you click you’ll have to view a 10 second ad. After viewing the ad you’ll find out if you’re a winner or not. If you’re not a winner then you won’t earn anything. So a bit of a gamble for your time if you don’t win anything.
Most of the recent winners only won about $0.10 or $0.25, which isn’t very much for the amount of time you spend on the grid. You get 30 chances a day to try and win. I’ve spent some time doing this and unfortunately I’ve never won anything from it so far.
Another way to earn money with Clixsense is by completing surveys. You’ll be prompted to complete a survey profile, which is just questions that you’ll need to answer about yourself. The aim of this is to provide you with surveys that fit your demographic and to fit you with surveys you’ll qualify for.
However, based on other users review, you’ll still be presented with many surveys that you won’t qualify for, despite filing out the survey profile. So it’s possible you’ll spend ages completing the qualification questions and then finding out that you don’t actually qualify for that survey…that’s a complete waste of your time and you don’t get reward at all for that time.
I personally haven’t tried using the surveys on Clixsense to make money. I tried many years ago, but remember not being very successful with it, so I decided not to even bother with surveys when trying the website out again this time around.

You can also earn money by completing microtasks with Crowdflower. You’ll need to create a Crowdflower account, but you can sign up through Clixsense and it doesn’t take too long.
You’ll be presented with different tasks, but when you first get started the earning potential will be very low. My first task was only paying $0.02, and I was required to transcribe audio.
As you complete more and more tasks, you’ll move up the different levels. As you move up the levels you’ll have the chance to earn more from the tasks. So if you want to use this method for making money it’s encouraged that you stick to it as much as you can at the beginning, as you’ll start seeing better rewards as you move up the levels. I’ve seen some reviews of people making up to $40-50 from microtasks alone…once they’ve reached the higher levels.
Below is an image that shows some potential jobs that are available. As you can see, you have to be at a certain level to complete a few of these tasks.
I’ve only recently begun looking at the “Tasks” section of Clixsense, so I haven’t achieved the levels yet. If I have any new updates regarding microtasks I’ll add them here.
You can earn extra by completing offers which include signing up to websites, taking surveys, entering competitions etc.
Clixsense has a daily checklist to help you earn money on a daily basis. This is a good way to earn something everyday, and you can keep track of how much you need to do, and how much you’ve earned for that day. If you can keep up with this on a daily basis, then you could make a nice little bit of money.
Playing Clixsense Games
Clixsense has some games that can be played on the site, however you can not make money by playing these games, they’re just for you to enjoy. I think these can be entertaining to play every now and again.
This is a tool that sends notification of any new tasks or offers that you can complete. It can be downloaded for Google Chrome, Firefox and Opera browsers. With this tool it’s more likely that you’ll get more PTC ads and get earlier access to surveys and tasks, because you’ll be notified of them sooner than other members.
Although the earning potential of Clixsense is quite low, it is definitely NOT a scam. Clixsense is a legitimate website, and a real way to make some money online.
Clixsense is completely free to join, and you can remain a free member as long as you want.
There’s an option to upgrade to premium if you feel you will benefit from being a premium member, which will cost you $17.
Benefits of being a premium member include:
Below is a screenshot from Clixsense which gives you a better idea of what the benefits are if you decide to upgrade:
I’d recommend that you only upgrade if you believe/know you’ll be able to get many referrals, and stay up to date with the daily checklist. If you’re not likely to make more than $17 a year then it’s not going to be worth the membership fee.
Anyone who may be looking to make some extra money online. But I would recommend that you don’t spend hours and hours on the site.
Multiple Ways To Earn
Free to Join
No Experience Needed
Clixsense has been running since 2007 and has been successfully paying members since. They’re a good company, and would be my recommended PTC site for anyone thats interested in earning with this method.
Pays via Paypal
Clixsense pays its members via Paypal, which I’m glad about. You can also cash out with other payment platforms such as Payza and Neteller.
You can interact with other Clixsense members within the forum, and take a look at different success stories and payment proofs.
A lot of time required to earn decent income
To earn any decent amount on Clixsense you have to spend a lot of time completing tasks.
Only one account per household
Rarely qualify for a survey
Most people will find that they don’t qualify for a survey, even though they’ve filled out all the profile questions. It seems that the chances of actually being able to qualify for a survey is very low. And in the end, you get no reward for time you spend completing the qualification questions. (Here’s a survey site that pays even if you don’t qualify)
High payout threshold
If you’re not completing surveys, then you might have trouble reaching the $8 threshold…unless you’re lucky enough to win $10 on Clixgrid. Considering you’re paid between $0.001-$0.01 for clicking ads it will probably take a long time to reach that threshold. The best way to earn more is to take part in all the different earning methods.
If you’re interested in making money through Clixsense then I want to provide some tips that could help you increase your earning potential
1. Sign up to Premium
If you really want to boost your earnings, then you could consider signing up to premium. It’s $17 a year, but you’ll be able to earn more than a free user.
2. Earn more with Referrals
This is probably the best way to earn more with Clixsense, and it’s the method that most Clixsense members use to maximise their earnings. The referrals would have to be active in order for you to earn. So the more referrals you have, the more likely you are to earn more money.
If you haven’t heard of Buxenger before, it’s basically a very useful app that allows you to speed up your earnings from viewing ads. You can also use it to manage your Clixsense account and any other PTC accounts you have more effectively. It’s free to join, with the option to upgrade for only $2 a month. This app won’t necessarily make you earn more, but it’ll allow you to earn faster, therefore saving you time to do other things.
In order to understand it better feel free to watch the tutorial video below.
Overall, Clixsense is a legit website that allows you to earn some money online…but don’t expect to get rich with it. As you can probably tell, I don’t think it’s something to spend a lot of time on. Maybe you can find ways to make use of the site to fit in with your day to day activities without wasting too much of your time. For example, you can view ads or use Clixgrid during TV ad breaks.
As you can see, it’s very low paying and not really worth a lot of effort. Instead, you could use your time to build an online business. That’s what I do, and I have a free online business training program that you can join to help you get started.
Is Clixsense the best PTC website? Personally, I think it is one of the best PTC sites to earn money from. Although you won’t earn a lot for viewing sites, you still have multiple other ways to earn from the site. Ultimately, if you work hard enough with Clixsense there’s still a good opportunity to earn some decent money from it. So if you feel you can make it work then I’d recommend you give it go.

I happened to stumble across this program a few months ago online, and was interested initially because of the name “No Brainer Profit System”.
I actually decided to invest some time into this program for a few weeks, as it was free to join, and I wanted to see whether or not it really was a “no-brainer” system.
This is my No Brainer Profit System Review.
Name: No Brainer Profit System (NBPS)
Price: Free to Join; Bronze $7; Silver $47; Gold $97 ; Platinum $497
Owners: Andy Luong and Chuck Nguyen
The No Brainer Profit System is a training platform designed to help people who want to learn affiliate marketing, how to build an email list, and/or build multiple streams of income online. The program is primarily aimed at new internet marketers, however, there is a lot of content available for more experienced online marketers as well.
The NBPS is completely free to join, and as you go through the free training you can choose to purchase any of the 4 levels that will unlock a collection of more advanced training videos, which I will discuss in further detail below.
Chuck and Andy are 2 Australian internet marketers that have been successfully making money online for many years. They are the owners of this online training program, as well as many others, which have received many positive reviews. They also offer a lot of valuable content online through their Blog and Youtube channel. With this program, both owners are accessible through Skype and social media, primarily Facebook.
The program introduces itself as a free to join program with optional upgrade levels.
Over in the members home area, you’ll watch a video that helps to introduce you into the system and shares the importance of List Building in creating a successful online business. You’re given an idea of how the NBPS will help you build a list and how you can use that list to promote your affiliate offers.
After watching the video on the home page you’re encouraged to join the private access Facebook group and introduce yourself. I feel this is a nice way to interact with other members of the NBPS community and get additional help in your business. You can also connect with Andy and Chuck directly on Facebook, and have a free Skype consultation with Andy too.
The first video presented here is all about how to set up your system correctly before actually driving traffic to the system, and you’re given a more in-depth overview of why building a list is so effective. It’s clear from this point that the initial aim of the training is to help you build an email list which you can then use to promote relevant affiliate products.
Once you’ve completed this video you’ll find a further 4 videos that will guide you step by step in setting up your system and connecting it to either Getresponse or Aweber.
The training here is relatively basic in my opinion. For someone who is familiar with affiliate marketing and online business, the information and training here will probably not be new, however, I did gain a few little nuggets of information here and there.
If you’re a complete beginner, I believe this step will allow you to learn some valuable information about list building and how to set up an email autoresponder, for free.
Once you’ve completed the system set up, you can then start working on building your list (provided you know how to get targetted traffic).
If you’re familiar with driving traffic to a capture page then you’ll probably have no issues getting people to join your list, and I found I was getting a decent number of email subscribers. However, if you’re a beginner then it’s very probable that you’ll struggle with this, and unfortunately, there is no free training within the NPBS to help you get targetted traffic.
That’s where the Bronze Level comes in…
The Bronze Level costs $7 (one-time payment), and this will allow you to begin earning commissions with the NBPS. Before you potentially invest in the Bronze Level you can watch a video that will give you a little introduction of what to expect.
The bronze level focuses on getting targetted traffic to your capture page. Finding targetted visitors is an important part of being successful online and in affiliate marketing. The thing I like about the training videos is that they’re not just for helping you promote the NBPS, it can be used to help you promote other affiliate products/programs.
The Bronze Level is set as a 30-day plan, so you can watch 1 video a day and implement the tasks set for that day. This is great if you’re in a full-time job or taking care of a family and might not have a lot of time, so you can go at your own pace.
The first few videos will focus on your mindset and goals, then the next few days will work on free traffic methods which you can start implementing easily.
As you continue on you’ll be further introduced to paid traffic methods. This is probably more likely to suit seasoned affiliate marketers and people who have more available money to spend on these methods. Whichever situation you are in you are likely to find a few traffic methods that you’ll be able to utilise and get traffic to the NPBS, or any other affiliate product you may wish to promote.
Overall, I was very happy to make the $7 investment for the Bronze Level, and I feel I learnt some additional traffic methods which helped with building my email list.
Once you’ve purchased the Bronze Level you’ll then be able to start earning 100% commissions for the level. All you have to do is get your account approved and sign up to the program that your commissions are paid into…Zaxaa. There’ll be a video which you can watch and follow step by step to set up your affiliate commissions and your Zaxaa account. This process won’t take too long, and it’ll allow you to start earning when you promote your affiliate link.
I would have preferred if they paid directly via Paypal, but so far it looks like Zaxaa is a legitimate payment platform, and you can even link your Paypal account to receive payments.
Can this course really get you to $10k in 30 days? Maybe…maybe not. Either way, I feel the content was still worth the $7 investment.
This is essentially 3 courses rolled into one. You’ll be able to watch an introduction video to get an idea of what to expect from the Silver Level. The Silver Level costs $47 (one-time payment), and you’ll be able to earn 100% commissions.
The 3 courses include:
28 Day Affiliate Challenge:
The aim of this training is to teach you how to pick a profitable niche, find a good affiliate product to promote, how to create a lead magnet to build your list with the help of squeeze/capture pages, and how to create high converting emails and drive traffic to your offers.
These videos aim to show you how to leverage some programs to earn commissions with little or no competition.
Casy Study Vaults:
When you go through these collections of videos you’ll see how Andy was able to promote his affiliate products and earn affiliate commissions case by case. You can see the steps he took to make money online through affiliate marketing. This will be beneficial for those who are looking for someone to follow step by step to achieve the same or similar results.
The Gold Level costs $97 (one-time payment) and you’ll be able to earn 100% commissions. Before you potentially invest in the Gold Level you can watch a video that will give you a little introduction of what to expect.
This level is focused on how to become an Authority in your niche
6-Figure Blogging Shortcuts (8 videos):
Here you’ll learn how blogging can help you become an authority in your business and how to interact with other bloggers and affiliate marketers to boost your authority.
Instant Authority Shortcuts (20 Videos):
With these videos, you’ll be taught how to set yourself up as a trustworthy brand. The information provided should help you in any niche and is not just specific to internet marketers.
Intensive Product Launch Academy (48 Videos):
The videos in this section will focus on how to put your product into a market place and create a product launch. This section is presented by Chuck Nguyen, the co-owner of this system.
This part of the system shares with you how you can create multiple income streams. You learn how to create a domain and set up hosting to build a niche website, how to set up TeeSpring campaigns to sell t-shirts, and how to make money with Youtube.
The Platinum Level costs $497 (one-time payment), and this will allow you to begin earning $250 commissions.
Affiliate Marketing Fundamentals (13 videos)
Building Profitable Niche Sites in 2016 (59 videos)
Youtube Marketing For Affiliate Marketers (31 videos)
Building A High Quality & Responsive Email List (30 videos)
TeeSpring Marketing (46 videos)
CPA Marketing Fundamentals (11 videos)
Plenty of Fish (CPM) (14 videos)
Pay Per View (14 videos)
Media Buying (Banner Ads) (9 videos)
Bing Ad Center (PPC) (12 videos)
As you can see from the list, the Platinum membership offers a huge amount of value. So if you’re able to afford the $497 price tag, then I believe you’ll be gaining a lot of quality training which you can implement into your business and get positive results from these 239 lessons. Luckily there is a 14-day money back guarantee if you decide that the training is not for you. Additionally, if you need more information before joining you can always get in contact direct with the owners to find out more.
Choice of 5 capture pages to promote the system
Done For You Traffic Packages:
The program allows you to buy traffic through the system. They claim to be able to provide quality clicks to your capture page. I haven’t purchased any of the clicks, so I can’t comment on the quality or if they’ll give you any commissions. The average cost is $100-120 for 100 clicks.
They recommend autoresponders such as Getresponse and Aweber. If you don’t have an account with either of these providers then you can easily join and access their 30-day free trial. It’s especially great if you’re just trying out NBPS and want to get started with setting up your system correctly.
This program is suitable for:
This program is NOT for anyone looking for a “get rich quick scheme”. Although there is an opportunity to make good money from this, you have to be willing to put in the work and effort to go through the training and take appropriate action.
There are a few different ways to get support for the system. There’s a little blue support button below which you can use to type a message. I actually used this once and unfortunately didn’t get a response. Update: I have now received a response, and Chuck kindly apologised for the delay, and even offered a little freebie!
You can also get support access with each level you unlock.
Furthermore, you can get support from the Facebook group. If need be you can also contact Chuck and/or Andy directly through Facebook.
I haven’t tried to request support using the last 2 methods, so unfortunately, I can’t comment fully on the response time. If I do require additional support I will update this page.
I think the program offers a very good pricing structure. It’s free to join, and you can remain a free member as long as you like and just focus on building your email list. There are no monthly fees, so you’re not tied down, and on most levels, you can earn 100% commissions if you choose to unlock those levels. I will break down the pricing structure below:
Free to Join
One Time Payment
If you choose to purchase any of the different levels you’ll only have to make a one-time payment. Therefore you’re not tied to any monthly fees.
Shows you how to set up your Autoresponder
I already knew how to do this, but if you’re someone who’s new to autoresponders and email marketing then I think this is helpful training to have.
Access to Private Facebook Group
I like that there is a community where people of this system can interact with other members. So far I haven’t seen a massive amount of interaction, but there is some and it’s helpful to see how others are doing with the system. The owners also provide some advice and updates on the program which is useful. I would personally prefer the community system to be available within the actual program to avoid having to switch between tabs, but at least there is a community available.
There are many training videos available which means it is easy to watch the owner as he completes the different tasks, and follow them step by step.
Easy Way To Help You Build An Email List
I felt that the NBPS allowed me to build an email list quite quickly. I did promote the program using a few different free traffic methods and was able to start building an email list just using the squeeze pages provided. There are a choice of 5 pre-designed squeeze pages and 7 different email swipes to help you promote the program.
I found that trying to build my list with NBPS allowed me to really understand the importance of building a list and I began focusing more on my email marketing strategy. I was able to improve my autoresponders for my site and for the NBPS, and I’m still learning what methods will work for me.
14 Day Money Back Guarantee
Low Ticket Priced Training with Valuable, Actionable tasks
The paid training starts at a low cost of $7, and it’s a one-time payment. This is one of the lowest prices I’ve seen for a program like this, especially for a one time fee. I especially like that there are no monthly charges, which means you can get good value for a low price.
Not Much Training in Free Membership
I think there is some good value offered in the free membership, however, it was pretty basic, and you won’t be directly profiting from this information unless you upgrade to the other levels. If you’re mainly focused on building your list with the program, then this might not bother you as much.
Some Levels Are Too Costly, Especially for Beginners
Most people will probably be able to afford the $7, however, after that, it might be too costly for some people.
Not Much Training on How to Build a Website/Blog in the Free Training:
I didn’t see any training on how to build a website or a blog, however, the NBPS doesn’t require you to build a website in order to promote the system. The main training for creating a blog/website is only available in the Platinum Level, which costs $497 to join, so that might not suit your budget. I personally already know how to create a blog, and it’s even possible to create a website for free. You can start now by entering a cool name for your blog in the box below.

Doesn’t Pay Affiliate Commissions Directly via PayPal
Despite this, you can still link your Paypal account to Zaxaa in order to receive commission payments.
Some of the Content in the Videos Does Not Match What is Actually Present In The Program
This can make things a bit confusing as there are features seen in the videos which are not actually available in the current program. For example the video for the “done for you traffic” package provides the cost of traffic for Diamond level, however, there is no longer a diamond level in the system. Although the videos were created before changes were made in the program, I think the videos should either be updated, or there should be text somewhere on the site to clarify why the videos are different from what is currently available in the system.
No Written Training
All the training in the NBPS is presented as videos. I personally like to have the option of both, so I was a bit disappointed with the lack of written content.
I feel this program has really helped me with building my email list and understanding the importance of it, however, I have not yet had a chance to test whether I can earn affiliate commissions from this list. Currently, my main goal is to work on building my list and I’m glad to see this is helping me do so.
I also decided to purchase the Bronze Level as I felt the program could offer value, and I felt that $7 really was a “no brainer”. (Note: I haven’t purchased any of the other levels).
Overall, I’m happy to promote a product like this because it offers a lot of value, and for the most part, it’s not too expensive.
Essentially, this is a choice you need to make for yourself, and I hope my review has been able to give you the opportunity to make an educated decision.

I think the NBPS is better looked at as training program rather than just another “make money online” system. I feel that overall there is some quality training available in this program and the chance to learn methods that you may not find anywhere else, for the price.
Below is a table I use to personally help me decide whether a program like this is worth joining.
I definitely believe that the NBPS has a lot to offer, and I’m also glad that the program can be used as a training platform.
If you’ve gone through this review and concluded it’s not for you, and you’re looking for an alternative, then I want to introduce you briefly my #1 recommended online training program. I am an active member of Wealthy Affiliate, which is a program you can join for FREE and remain a free member for life if you choose too.
The Wealthy Affiliate FREE membership includes:
10 Lesson Course:
You’re automatically enrolled onto Wealthy Affiliate’s “Online Entrepreneur Certification: Getting Started” – You have access to 10 lessons which teach you how to get started online and set up your website. ( As well as the “Affiliate Bootcamp” course)
2 FREE websites:
You can create 2 websites completely free when you sign up to Wealthy Affiliate, and you get access to premium hosting and support for your sites.
Personal Help & Support:
When you sign up for free, you don’t just get help and support from me personally, you also get assistance from other members of the community, and even from the owners. You have access to live chat for the first 7 days, and you really get to have a feel for the program and what to expect if you decided to upgrade.
Earn commissions as a FREE member
With the Wealthy Affiliate program, you can even earn commissions as a free member if your referral upgrades to premium. Additionally, commissions get paid via Paypal.
How does NBPS compare to Wealthy Affiliate?
If you join me at Wealthy Affiliate, as a special bonus you’ll get your first month for only $19. That’s over 59% discount. It’s a great way to really test out the premium membership and see if Wealthy Affiliate is for you.
However, you can always get started with the FREE membership first. Check out my review here.
There you have it, my No Brainer Profit System review, and I hope I’ve been able to give you a balanced overview of what it offers.
I believe this is a very good program for anyone new wanting to learn affiliate marketing, and even for those who are more experienced. I especially like that it is free to join, and you can get a feel for what the program will provide from watching the free training videos.
Despite the many positives of this training program, I will be using it solely for list building, and if I make affiliate commissions on the bronze level then that will be an added bonus.
My recommended program is Wealthy Affiliate and I feel that it is an all round excellent program with so much to offer. It’s a monthly membership, but there is always new training being added and the site has been running for more than 11 years with huge success and as an active member of Wealthy Affiliate I have been making monthly commissions and learning how to build a successful affiliate marketing business online.

Name: Affiliate Commission Pro (ACP)
Price: $1 Trial then $47/month + Upsells
Owners: Jeff Baxter, Huw Hughes, Aiden Corkery
Overall Ranking: 6/10 (but NOT worth monthly fee)
While researching this product I came across a lot of the Affiliate Commission Pro reviews that were pretty biased. Those promoting the program were basically just other affiliates who are looking for a sale, and only regurgitating what’s already on the sales page. What makes my review different is that I’ve actually purchased the product and I’m giving my full unbiased opinion. There are things I like about this program, but there are also many things I dislike about the program. I wanted to share with you a genuine insider view so you can make a balanced decision for yourself. So read on for my official Affiliate Commission Pro Review.
Affiliate Commission Pro is essentially a training program designed to help newbies succeed with Affiliate Marketing. The program provides training videos which are designed to give you the tools to make money online through affiliate marketing, and to help you make sales within a few days. Although the program teaches you how to make money selling the program, you are also able to use the training to help you sell other affiliate products.
It was started up by 3 internet marketers, Jeff Baxter, Huw Hughes and Aidan Corkery, and launched 16th March 2016. Taking a look at their backgrounds, I can see they all have had success in the affiliate marketing world, so it would make sense that people would want to listen to the advice of those who have also been successful. However, is this program still worth your time and your money? Well, as you read on you’ll find out more.
9 Training videos
Marketing Center – This is where you’ll find the squeeze page you’ll be using to collect emails, and where you’ll connect your Aweber account to send your new list the “done-for-you” autoresponder email series. You’ll be taught how to set this up during the training. You will need to create an Aweber account, but luckily Aweber has a 30 free trial if you want to get started.
Tracking Software – This is where you’ll be able to track your leads and sales. It makes it easier to see everything in one place, and you can create unique tracking codes in order to help you identify where your leads and sales are coming from. This will also be taught/shown to you in the training videos.
Free Bonuses – You are given a bunch of free bonuses, which range from eBooks to other internet marketing programs. Some of the bonuses are links to other programs which require you to enter your email, so basically you’re joining someone else’s email list and they’ll be marketing their online programs to you. I didn’t really make use of the bonuses, as they just didn’t appeal to me, and I wasn’t interested in joining any other programs.
Video 1: Overview
This just gives you a brief overview about ACP and how to access the different sections
Video 2: Signup For Your Autoresponder
In this video, you will be creating an Aweber account (if you don’t already have one)
Video 3: Creating Your List and ACP Integration
In this video, Jeff will show you how to set up you list and integrate your Aweber account with ACP. It’s pretty straight forward and the training shows it in easy to follow steps.
Video 4: Setting Up Your Followup Messages
This video will teach you how to set up follow up messages in your Aweber account. Jeff will provide you with follow up messages to use as your autoresponder. He lays it out in a simple, easy to follow method so you are essentially copying and pasting the information he provides into your autoresponder.
Video 5: Building A 10K Mailing List Fast While Making Money Simultaneously
Here Jeff teaches you how to build a mailing list of up to 10k, and also earn money at the same time. The method he suggests to help you reach 10k subscribers is by using solo ads. He provides you with a reputable solo ads website and shows you how to purchase ads from sellers that are worth the money. If you’re on a tight budget then this method will be difficult for you to implement, but he does offer a free facebook traffic method later on. The idea that you’ll be making money as well as building a list is based on the fact that, by getting your squeeze page out there, you are building a list and getting buyers to the ACP program at the same time. You’ll then learn how to use that method to increase your list up to 10k.
Video 6: Posting A Forum Classified Ad
In this video, you’ll be taught how to post a forum classified ad. This is also another paid traffic method.
Video 7 & 8: Free Traffic And Sales With Your Warm Market
In these 2 videos, he’ll show you how to get free traffic using Facebook. This is an option if you’re on a tight budget, however, I wish he would have presented some additional free methods, as I don’t feel this is enough. The warm market is basically people that you know, and I feel that, unless you know people on Facebook that would willing to join you in the make money online business, it’s not likely you’ll get people to join through this method.
Video 9: $10,000 a Month Selling Traffic
This video gives you a little insight into how you can use your newly formed 10k list as a way to make money more online. You’ll be shown a method that will allow you to benefit and make money using your large list. This method will only really work if you have a big list, so you’ll have to wait until then to really benefit from this tutorial. However, it’s still worth watching then you have an idea of what will be involved when you finally do reach 10k.
“Learn how to get absolutely free traffic with the power of social media!”
“Learn the secrets to getting thousands of people paying you monthly in your online business!”
“Discover how to get thousands of targeted visitors to your offers daily and never have “dry spells” in your business again!”
Unfortunately, I am unable to really comment on the quality or content of these training courses, as I did not purchase them. However, I do prefer the fact that they are one-time offers, rather than being a monthly offer which provides very little value for money.
The program is mostly advertised for newbies (however, Jeff also does say it can be used my intermediate and expert marketers). For a beginner, all the things you need, specifically for the program, are presented to you, and you’re encouraged to just copy and paste the content that is made available to you. If you’re a total newbie then this is helpful, but if you have some experience of Affiliate Marketing I would encourage using the content in your own style, or just creating your own content. When I was testing out the program I just followed the content they had provided in order to see if their content does well on its own. So at least the options are there for you to use their work or create your own.
The program is also suitable for:
Freebie-seekers. If you’re someone that’s constantly looking for something for free, this program is not for you. This program requires money to get started, and to keep going, and that’s the kind of people they are looking for…people who are ready to buy.
Just to be clear, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting something of value for free, but if you’re really serious about starting a business online, whether it’s through affiliate marketing or other methods, you will need to consider investing in money at some point. It’s all well and good to get started for free, but you need to take your business seriously if you really want to do well.
Also, this program is also not for people who are looking for a more in-depth training program, which I’m sure most of you are looking for. The content and training are just not worth the $47/month cost.
You’re able to put in a support ticket, which isn’t the easiest page to navigate, but I had a good response time, and you can also view the FAQs page. Another support method available is the ability to call Jeff personally. To access this 1-on-1 coaching and assistance you have to pay, $1500 per year or $197 per month.
So I’ll just break down the pricing to make the different levels clearer:
14-day trial: $1
Main Product: $47/month
Affiliate Social Pro: $17 One Time Offer
ACP 6 Figure Continuity Workshop: $47 One Time Offer
ACP 6 Figure Endless Traffic Workshop: $27 One Time Offer
If you are a total beginner, then some training videos will be useful to you. However, you’ll find that much of the training is also readily available for free online, such as how to find products on Clickbank, and how to set up an Aweber account.
The tutorials are given step by step and are very easy to follow
The program offers a tracking software which helps you track where your leads and sales are coming from.
Although you’re shown how to set up an Aweber account, there are also many free videos online that can teach you how to do so. I guess the difference here is that he shows you how to integrate your Aweber account with the ACP program, which will allow you to keep up with your leads and sales.
In order to implement this training, you will have to set up an Aweber account, if you don’t already have one. Luckily Aweber offers a 30-day free trial, so if you do try ACP out, you won’t have to worry about paying for Aweber for at least 30 days. If you already have Aweber you can just sign in with your Aweber account and create a new campaign. He will show you how to do this.
The trial also comes with Money Back Guarantee. Although I prefer to have a free trial offer, $1 isn’t a bad deal if you have decided you would like to join the program. You can create your account with either Credit Card or Paypal. I always prefer using Paypal, so at least that option is there.
This is a way for you to interact with other members of ACP, and to find motivation and stay focused. However, at the time of writing this, there isn’t very much interaction between the members, and not much going on in the group, Although it is still a very new program, the lack of value in the group just isn’t useful for a newbie
The program also provides you with a pre-designed squeeze page. I think creating your own squeeze page is better, but for a newbie, who doesn’t know about squeeze pages, this can be a useful way to capture leads for your email list.
The main course only has 9 videos, and they’re very short, probably lasting 5-10 minutes each.
In order to have full access to the program, you’ll be spending $47 monthly + up to $91 in One Time Offers.
Although the videos were simple to follow, the lack of full-screen mode was a bit frustrating for me as I like to make the videos bigger so I can fully see what is happening. The program is still new, so this is something that could be sorted over time.
The content is limited, especially for the price. As mentioned above, the main course consists of 9 videos and the only additional features are the tracking software, the marketing center, and the bonuses.
In order to get fast traffic, you’ll have to use paid methods, which can be quite costly, especially for a newbie.
Generally speaking, friends and family tend to be least interested in your online ventures. The majority of them believe it is not possible to make money online and will avoid your attempts to get them to join any program you suggest to them. Therefore, this method may not work so well for many people. Other than this, there are not any other free methods mentioned in the program.
I wouldn’t call this a con entirely because most, if not all, programs have upsells. They’re also not heavily priced which is good. But you can’t get much value from this program unless you purchase these other products. I was able to get through the main training videos and implement the tasks within a few hours. For some this is good cause it means you can get rolling as soon as possible, however, considering how much you will pay monthly, it is quite a big investment for very little value.
You are shown how to purchase a domain in order to redirect your affiliate link, but there are no lessons on building a website. That is because, with this program, it suggests you don’t need to build a website to make money online. This is true, however, I think having a website is an essential part of having an online business and creating a brand for yourself.
You can create your own FREE website in the next few minutes by entering a name in the bar below:
In my opinion, this program is just not worth the monthly fee. You don’t get much value, and you can be done with the main course in a few hours! I’ve used the program for almost 2 weeks and I have not seen any new features or any new content that would encourage me to potentially invest in a monthly fee with this program. I believe it would be better suited as a one time offer.
The online training program I personally use, and recommend, offers TONS more value, and for the same price. (Review here)
I implemented the tasks step by step as shown in the video. I tested it out for a few days to see how fast I’d be able to make some money. As mentioned before, I was able to get through all the training in the main product, within a few hours. For some this may seem good, but how much value can you really get from a monthly membership if you are able to finish the training in a few hours.
I didn’t implement the traffic methods suggested because they were paid methods, so I just implemented a few free methods, and I was able to get some leads. I got 7 leads in the first 24 hours…but no sales. Although I didn’t get any sales in a few days as suggested, there are a number of reasons for why that was. I didn’t implement the paid traffic methods, so that would have played a big part. Also, because I invested time in free methods, it’s likely my list was made up of freebie-seekers, therefore, they would not have been very interested in making any payments, and it usually seems to take longer to convert leads to sales via free methods.
Overall, I could not justify ever paying $47/month for this program. I wasn’t getting any extra features and did not feel there was value for money here.
Also, feel free to watch my video walkthrough below:
A little while ago I created a post about finding the best make money online program from you. I had a number of questions which I felt were important to ask yourself about a program before deciding to join, and the table below will summarise Affiliate Commission Pro against those questions.
So, in this instance, Affiliate Commission Pro was not for me, as it did not tick all the boxes. These are just my deciding factors, they may be different for you. but I still think it’s worth seeing whether the program really fits your needs.
I am an active member of Wealthy Affiliate, and this is my #1 recommended online training program. It provides SO much value for less than $50/month, and you can learn how to create your own affiliate marketing business. I could talk about Wealthy Affiliate for ages, so it’s probably better for you to just check out my comparison table below and read my review.
If you join me at Wealthy Affiliate, as a special bonus you’ll get your first month for only $19. That’s a 59% discount. It’s a great way to really test out the premium membership and see if Wealthy Affiliate is for you.
However, you can always get started with the FREE membership first. Check out my review here.
I think there are a few good features in this program, but ultimately I feel there just isn’t enough to make it worth $47/month, and therefore I would NOT recommend this program. I think if it was offered as a lower one-time payment then it’ll be slightly better value for money, but as a monthly subscription, it’s a big massive NO.
I’d say, if you’ve already made up your mind and you’re really interested in giving it a go, then it’s worth that $1 investment and you can learn a few new techniques that you can also implement into other affiliate marketing ventures. You get to at least test it out for 14 days, then you can decide whether to become a monthly member or not.
With that being said, I think there are other more valuable training programs out there that can teach you how to give your business more sustainability by gaining trust with readers and customers.

While looking for ways to make money online I came across a website called OfferNation.com. I spent a little time using the website in order to test it out and find out if OfferNation is legit. I will share my thoughts on the website, as well as my payment proof. Hopefully, the information I provide will help you decide if this website is a good way for you to make some extra money online. If you’re looking for a quality OfferNation review, then you’ve come to the right place!
OfferNation is a Get Paid To (GPT) site that’s been online since 2013. A GPT site is a website that provides multiple ways to earn money online by doing different tasks. Most GPT sites involve completing surveys, clicking ads, sign up for offers, watching videos etc.
This is the most profitable way to make money online with OfferNation, because the surveys offer higher payouts. You can see from the image below that you are told how much the offer will pay, and the instructions of what you need to do in order to receive the payment.
You’ll also get a list of Top surveys and some New surveys that are available to complete.
There are many offers available that you can complete. You can find them in the “OfferWalls” tab at the top. Each offer awards you in points, rather than cash. However, the points you earn can be converted into cash if you like. The offers that usually award higher points, tend to involve making a payment. I personally stay away from those types of offers, but you can still earn from the if you’d like. Some of the offers at “OfferWall” also have additional surveys that can be completed for higher paying rewards.
With OfferNation you can also get paid to watch videos, but not many points are awarded for doing so. However, at least this option is there if it’s something you would like to do to earn points.
With this method, you can earn some points by clicking on ads. The earning potential is very low with this method, as some ads pay as low as $0.0009, which is almost useless in my opinion. (I guess it’s good if you’ve got an ad to advertise though, due to its low cost). There are some that offer higher amounts, but overall, it’s still pretty low.
You’re able to get paid to search with this website. They pay you up to $0.018 for each search you do. There are instructions about what specific keywords you need to search for in order to get rewarded.
I seemed to have a few problems finding the websites with the search terms. I’m not sure if one of the reasons is because my Google browser would automatically set to .co.uk instead of .com. In the end, I wasn’t able to really earn with this method, but who knows, you may have better luck than me.
The offers are credited as either cash or points. Points are usually awarded for completing sign up offers. These points can then be converted into cash. The amount you earn depends on the offer you complete.
Your cash can be redeemed via any of these 4 e-wallet vendors listed below. Each vendor also has a minimum withdraw amount:
Also, points can be redeemed for Amazon Gift Cards
This is a good site for anyone looking for a way to make a little extra money online. Maybe you’ve used other GPT sites and you’re looking for an alternative, if so, then this is a good option. You have multiple ways to earn, and you can probably find a method that works well for you.
Note: If you’re looking for another quality survey site to make some extra money online, then I would highly recommend using Mintvine. It’s my favourite survey site because you can see how long a survey will take before you do it, and even if you don’t qualify for a survey, you can be awarded up to 30 points (30¢). If you’d like to know more about MintVine, then you can check out my review by clicking the link below.

If you don’t like GPT sites or survey sites, then this website is definitely NOT for you. I know some of you just don’t want to spend your time doing offers and surveys, which I understand. So if that’s you, then I’d recommend NOT joining this site, as you probably won’t find it beneficial. If you’re looking for a more profitable income earner, I’d suggest starting an online business. If that’s something you’d be interested in I’d encourage you to check out my #1 recommended training program.
They offer a help guide and a FAQs section to help you get started and understand the ways to make money with them.
They offer a support ticket service which aims to contact you within 12 hours. I haven’t had to contact support, but if I do I can update my experience here.
As soon as I reached the $1 threshold I decided to withdraw my cash and see if they pay out as fast as promised on the site. I am pleased to say that it does. I received my payment within a few hours straight to my PayPal account. The only downside is that they take 2% transaction fee when you withdraw to Paypal. However, I’m not sure if this is the case for other e-wallet vendors.
Also, you’ll need to provide a phone number for verification. This was pretty easy, I just selected my country and entered my number. You can choose when to receive the call, and you’ll get given the verification number to input onto OfferNation (see screenshot below)
Please see the image below for Paypal payment proof. (Note: the name on Paypal will show up as 99 ventures. This is because OfferNation is owned my 99 Ventures)
You can also take a look at their payments proof page here, and you can see that people are cashing out payments on a daily basis.
Yes – If you’re looking to make some extra money online through GPT sites. I think OfferNation has potential for earning money online as there are multiple ways that you can earn some money from this site.
No – If you’re looking for a program that has more earning potential, and don’t want to spend your time completing online surveys/offers.
OfferNation is a genuine way to make some additional money online. There are multiple ways to earn, and it’s totally free to join. If, however, you’re not interested in GPT sites, and you’d like to start an online business and making more money online, I would encourage you to check out my #1 recommended training program. This program will allow you to start an online business based on something you’re passionate about, which could lead to much higher earning potentials.
Overall, OfferNation is a legit program, and good if you’re looking for a way to earn a little extra money online. I think it’s definitely worth a try, and you may find that OfferNation works well for you.

Product Name: Empower Network
Overall Ranking: 4/10
Price: $25/month + upsells up to $3500
Owner: David Wood
You may have come to my review because you’ve heard of Empower Network, and/or you’re interested in joining, but want to know a bit more before potentially taking the plunge (or not). Well, I want to share with you my honest opinion of the Empower Network system as a former member.
My angle might by slightly different from other Empower Network reviews online because I will be sharing my own personal experiences, as well as why I don’t recommend this program for starting a business online.
Empower Network is an online program that aims to provide people with the tools to start an online business and make money online from home. It began in October 2011 and has now become a well-known name in the online marketing world.
I first heard about Empower Network when I joined the iPas 2 system. The iPas 2 system was designed as a “done for you system” which automated the process of getting other people to sign up and purchase the iPas 2 system through your link, to give you affiliate commissions. iPas 2 was affiliated with Empower Network, so when you joined the iPas2 system you also ended up joining the Empower Network system, if you wanted to achieve higher commissions. I was actually hoping to do my review of iPas 2, but I have recently learnt that it no longer exists, and the co-founder Chris Jones, is also no longer affiliated with Empower Network.
There are 6 products available with Empower Network, and they all have different pricing structures.
Cost: $25/month for Basic or $97/month for Premium
The Kalatu Blogging Platform is a WordPress based blogging framework available to people who want to build a website for their business.
This is your entry level into the Empower Network System.
On their website, they claim that setting up a self-hosted blogging platform is difficult, however, I haven’t found this to be true. This website, and others I own, are self-hosted and they didn’t take me long to set up at all. Empower Network also claims that purchasing the Kalatu blogging platform is more affordable, however, you can easily host your own site for $1.99/month with iPage , install WordPress and have access to 1000s of themes and plugins at no additional cost.
The Inner Circle is a collection of audios that are designed to train your mindset and give you daily bursts of inspiration, with regular weekly audio updates to listen to. Personally, I like the idea of mindset audios. I think it’s encouraging to be able to listen to/read words of encouragement, and have tips from other entrepreneurs to inspire you with your business.
However, I didn’t like having to spend $100/month on this. I did find the audios helpful at the time, but since joining Wealthy Affiliate I don’t feel I’m missing out as I get lots of motivation from the blogs written at Wealthy Affiliate by other members of the community. Although they’re not audios, they are regular bursts of motivation, inspiration, and encouragement for me, and it’s all included in the premium membership of $47/month.
Cost: $500 one time fee
Previously known as Costa Rica Intensive
In this training course, you get 13 modules that aim to reveal the secrets of how to become a Top Producer in your business. It also includes 11 video sessions which took place in Costa Rica in 2011, so some of the information is a bit outdated.
It seems this is where the main bulk of the Empower Network training begins.
At the time, I couldn’t afford (thankfully), or even comprehend investing $500 into a product that I didn’t really have much information about, and even now there is still very little information on the actual website about what this product is, which isn’t very good if you’re expecting someone to spend that amount of money on the product.
Cost: $1000 one time fee
Previously known as 15K Formula
With the Team Building Formula, you get 11 lessons and webinars that are designed to teach you how to sell high commission items and build a team.
Again, there is very little information on the website about this product, which is a shame for a product costing this much.
Previously known as Masters Retreat
With this set of recorded training, you’ll be taught to “win the respect of others and influence them to take action” in 8 modules, by some of the top earners within Empower Network.
But again, there is not much information available on the site.
Just a thought: Considering the last 3 options have such little information on what the products actually are, would you be happy spending $5000 on them?
Overall, I think some of the ideas behind the products are good, however, I personally don’t think they’re worth the high price tag.
Yes, that’s right…with the Empower Network Affiliate Program you have to pay a monthly fee to be an affiliate. I don’t believe you should have to pay to be an affiliate, and I have joined many affiliate programs, and this is the only program where I have had to pay a fee, let alone a monthly fee!
So with this in mind, if you don’t pay this fee and someone purchases an Empower Network product through your link, you will not receive the commissions for that product.
You make money with Empower Network by getting others to join the program. It’s as simple as that really.
If you do not own one of the products, you will not receive any commissions for that product. For example, if you only had the Kalatu Blogging System, and someone joins Empower Network through your link, you’ll only get paid commissions for the blogging system. If your referral purchases other products, you will not receive affiliate commissions for those.
The best way to make the most money with Empower Network is by going all in and purchasing all the products. Most people wanting to work from home online cannot afford to go all in, and you’ll most likely lose A LOT of money before making you actually start making any.
Empower Network pays it’s affiliates up to 70% commissions. But in my opinion, there’s a hidden downside…and this is the compensation plan.
With the Empower Network Compensation Plan, some referral sales you make get passed up to your upline. When I joined it meant that commissions from the 1st, 3rd, 5th sale, and every 5th sale after that, would get passed up.
If we take a look at an example below:
Imagine that I’m “all in” and own every product of Empower Network. I have a referral, Lisa, who has only purchased the $25 Kalatu blogging platform. If she gets another person, John, to join the program, and John decides to go all in, she won’t receive commissions for products after the blogging platform, and they will be passed up to me.
So, it seems the aim of this is to encourage Lisa to want to go “all in” to avoid missing out on commissions.
After lots of work and money lost, I was finally able to refer someone to the iPas 2 system, and they eventually continued through to Empower Network and purchased the Kalatu blogging system. As I was a subscriber of the product at the time I expected to receive a commission. However due to the compensation plan, that commission was passed up to my upline.
Here’s a few quotes directly from Empower Network regarding their Compensation Plan:
The compensation plan is initiated when a particular product is activated either through personal use or product sale; you receive no benefit for referring or recruiting affiliates.
It should be noted that if the product in question is a monthly subscription, you have to maintain that subscription either through purchasing it for your own personal use, or maintaining one active member subscription. You will then be activated to participate in the full commission structure with your next sale of that product, and receive commissions immediately.
So it seems they’re saying that in order to receive commissions, I first need to make a sale just to activate the commission payment for that product. That seems very strange since I’m already paying a $19.95 affiliate fee. Shouldn’t that activate my commission payments?!
Anyway, the supposed aim of this compensation plan is to make sure everyone is hungry for success. However, this for me was very disheartening, as I had put so much effort and money into trying to get referrals, and when someone finally came through my link, I wasn’t awarded for it. I could have kept going, but to be honest, that put me off completely. I was losing a lot of money very fast, and making nothing. I know making money from an online business doesn’t happen overnight, but when you put in so much effort and your potential reward gets passed up so easily, it’s not very encouraging. Not for me at least.
So I felt I couldn’t continue.
Empower Network offers a 14-day refund policy which begins from the day of purchase. If you want to request a refund you can contact their support team email@example.com.
I’ve had a look online regarding the refund policy, and it seems that many people have found it difficult to get their money back. However, there are a few options available here.
Empower Network doesn’t use PayPal to pay its affiliates. It uses an e-wallet merchant called Global Payroll Gateway (GPG), which cost an additional $19.95/month for you to use with Empower Network. I’m not sure if this is still the case, but either way, there are a lot of account and transfer fees involved with this merchant. It just seemed like a lot of hassle for me when setting up the account. Things with PayPal are so much simpler, and I personally prefer affiliate programs that pay via Paypal.
Yes, I believe it is possible to make money with Empower Network. However, in my opinion, even if you get lots of referrals, and therefore lots of commission…soon you’ll find that most of the people who join under you will fail. Not because they don’t apply the knowledge, but because they cannot afford the products and lose a lot of money trying to promote to other people.
Even Empower Network knows that most people won’t make money. Below is a quote from the income disclosure stated at the bottom of Empower Network’s Compensation plan document:
The average affiliate makes less than $100 and that does not include business expenses.
Yes, it’s true that everyone’s earnings will be different, but if the average affiliate makes less than $100 and that hasn’t even included business expenses, then is it really worth a $5k investment? So that’s one thing I’d definitely encourage you to ask yourself before you consider joining.
Even if you take a look at this table below, you’ll see that 92% of all Empower Network affiliates make an average of only $55 a year!
Now, I believe there are people that are making money with this program, however, would you be comfortable knowing you’re potentially putting other people in financial despair, just to earn money yourself.
I didn’t feel comfortable asking others to potentially spend $5k when I couldn’t even afford it myself. I spent so much on trying to market Empower Network, and wasn’t given the correct training at the basic level, therefore, I wasted money on things I knew nothing about. I also couldn’t seem to get in contact with my upline for further advice. Thinking back I can only imagine it’s because they left Empower Network too. In the end, I did not feel comfortable asking others to join a program that was losing me lots of money. This is also why I decided to leave iPas 2. Although I was making commissions with iPas 2, as it was more affordable, I didn’t like that it was affiliated with Empower Network. I decided that Empower Network wasn’t for me, and it was time to leave.
So now you need to ask yourself, “Is Empower Network the best Make Money Online program for me?”
Empower Network was clearly not for me, and I don’t particularly encourage others to join it because I think the money can be better spent elsewhere. However, if you feel content that you can afford all the products, are able to put the work in to promote them, and you don’t mind promoting only Empower Network, then the option is there for you.
A few weeks ago I wrote a post on How to Find The Best Make Money Online Program For You. There were a few questions I felt were important to ask yourself about a program before deciding to join, and the table below will summarise Empower Network against those questions.
These are my deciding factors for choosing a make money online program. They may be different for you, and that’s completely fine. My aim with this review is to share with you my genuine experiences.
I know there will be people that will disagree with my thoughts on Empower Network, and that’s fine, but I just don’t agree with many aspects of this program, and would personally NOT recommended Empower Network to other people looking to start an online business. I believe if I had continued I probably would have made some commissions, but I also believe I would have lost a lot more money in the process, because I was not given the right skills and training, and I would have made most of my referrals lose money also.
Therefore, I want to share with you my #1 recommended training program for starting an online business, that I feel fits my needs and the needs of someone looking to start an online business in a way that is much more affordable.
I am an active member of Wealthy Affiliate, and I like to promote this training program because it is a genuine way to learn how to start an online business, and the training is much more affordable and in-depth. Below is a list of some of the reasons why I recommend Wealthy Affiliate over Empower Network:
There’s so much to gain with Wealthy Affiliate compared to Empower Network, in my opinion. I have been a member of both, and as someone who has experienced Empower Network, I believe Wealthy Affiliate is the better program to go for. I have created a comparison table below to outline some of the major differences between the 2 programs:
The aim of this review isn’t to go around yelling scam, scam, scam…it’s to inform you of some of the realities of Empower Network.
Although I believe people are making money with Empower Network, I was not one of those people. It’s not because I didn’t apply the training available to me, or that I didn’t try hard enough, it was because I couldn’t afford to go all in.
Overall, I didn’t feel comfortable going all in financially and ethically.
I just want to be able to share my honest opinion of Empower Network and give you my take on things as a former member.
Ultimately, if you’re still interested in joining Empower Network, you have to think to yourself, are you able to afford this program, and can you put the work in. Both options are there, and the end decision is yours. If you’d like to know more about Wealthy Affiliate please check out my review here, or you can ask questions in the comments below.

Product name: Kalatu Blogging Platform
Overall Ranking: 5/10
$25/month Kalatu Basic
$97/month Kalatu Premium
Owner: David Wood of Empower Network (EN)
This is going to be my personal review of the Kalatu Blogging Platform. I aim to talk about my own experience and help you decide whether this platform is worth your time and money.
Kalatu is a WordPress based blogging platform available for anyone who wants to build a website for their online business. Although anyone can join the platform, the majority of its members are also Empower Network Affiliates.
The aim of the Kalatu Blogging Platform is to help people build a business online through blogging. Their idea is that blogging is the key to being a successful marketer online.
There are 2 pricing tiers available for the Kalatu Blogging Platform
Below you can see a screenshot of the different features you can expect to get with the Kalatu memberships
As you can see from the features, there are quite a few things that the Kalatu Blogging Platform has to offer.
Good platform for beginners:
In my opinion, this is genuinely a really good blogging platform for beginners. When I first was introduced to Empower Network, I knew nothing of marketing or blogging. The first blogging platform they had wasn’t all that great, and I never made full use of it. But then they introduced the Kalatu platform, and my ideas/thoughts about blogging had changed. I found it to be a great tool for me as an absolute beginner.
Takes away all the technical aspects of blogging:
Everything about it was so simple. I didn’t have to think about installing plugins or themes, or having too many things ot think about. This was really helpful to me at the time because I had no clue what I was doing, I didn’t know about plugins for example. If you’re familiar with the WordPress dashboard you know that there’s a lot of features, and to a newbie it can be quite overwhelming. However, the Kalatu dashboard was very simplified. All I needed to do was create content for my blog. As an absolute newbie, this worked for me.
21-day blogging challenge:
This is unique plugin specially created for users of the Kalatu Blogging Platform. Basically, it is a way of encouraging users to blog more frequently. So the aim is to blog every day, for 21 days. This was a usual tool to me back then, and even now I actually think this is a very useful tool. When I was a member of Empower Network, I really appreciated having a plugin like this. I was very new to blogging at that point, and it was very helpful to have prompts and guides to help me create content for my blog.
Take a look at the video below to find out more about what you can expect from the 21 day blogging challenge
Can link it to your own domain name:
When you first sign up your domain name will look something like this “youwebsite.buildingabrandonline.com”. You can use this if you choose too, but if you’re really thinking about growing your business you need a domain name that doesn’t have a sub domain attached to it. For example, “yourwebsite.com”. You can purchase your own domain name with GoDaddy, Namecheap etc)
You can create your own “Call to Action”:
Although this feature of creating custom “Call to Action” is available, most Kalatu blogs I see are from people who are members of Empower Network Affiliate program, so their call to action are one’s created by Empower Netwrok. But at least the option is there to customise and create your own ones to it to suit your own needs.
The Kalatu Platform has very limited number of plugins. If you upgrade to Premium then you get access to more plugins, however, your site is not as customisable as other blogging platforms. Although this can be suitable for beginners, cause they don’t have to think too much about all the technical stuff, it doesn’t really allow you to expand and build your website the way you want to.
Only 8 themes!:
When I was a member there were only 5 themes, so it’s interesting to see they’ve now recently increased that to a whopping 8 themes. Considering the amount of money you put in every month, it’s not much.
I wasn’t able to customise the site the way I wanted:
Once I started learning more about building a website, and WordPress, I wanted to start customising my site to look the way I wanted it. When I first began with Kalatu I really like the simplicity of the platform, but after some weeks I wanted to change things, add things and move things. However, I didn’t really get the chance to do this. I couldn’t add any new plugins. At the time of being a member there were only 5 themes available…which had very limited customisation features. So it left me feeling disappointed, especially as I was paying for it.
I wasn’t always creating quality content:
I found that with the 21-day blogging challenge, although I was writing everyday, I wasn’t always creating real quality content. My post would be short, or just be a list of videos. Although I still recommend writing regularly, maybe it shouldn’t be 21 consecutive days, as it’s not easy to write in depth posts in a day, when you have other responsibilities, such as having a full time job (which I had at the time).
You don’t really own your blog/website:
After all the money you put in monthly, you do not actually own your blog/website! It is owned my Empower Network. So if Empower Network decided to stop operating, all your hard work will be lost.
Pricing – There’s no free option:
In order to get on board with Kalatu, you need to be willing to spend $25 a month. This isn’t great if you’re a beginner and just want test the waters before you start investing any kind of money.
When I was a member of Kalatu last year, the platform only had one price package, which was the $25. But I can now see that they have added another package of $97 month. So in order to really get access to all the features of Kalatu, you would need to sign up for their premium package of $97 a month. I personally think that is way too much. Even a Business Plan on WordPress.com doesn’t cost half that much!
Kalatu is a very useful platform for people who are just starting out online. If you’re looking for a blogging platform that is geared towards beginners, then I feel Kalatu has a lot to offer you. If you’ve never had a website or blogged before, the tools they provide are useful get you off your feet, and create some content.
Looking back on my overall experience, I did actually enjoy the Kalatu Blogging Platform. As a beginner, I was able to create blog posts often with the help of the 21 Day Blogging Challenge and have my very own website. However, I did not feel comfortable with the $25/month price, especially when I was being offered little in regards to themes and plugins…and after a month of being an Empower Network Affiliate, I just didn’t like the idea of promoting their program to other people.
So, even though there are some good features available with Kalatu, and it is well suited for beginners, based on my overall experience I would NOT recommend the Kalatu Blogging Platform if you’re looking for long term success. I feel there are other platforms out there which offer much more, and for a much better price!
It is actually possible to build your own website online for free, and I want to share with you my #1 recommended website builder to do so.

I came across this exciting new website online that pays users to test new products online and share their opinions. The website is called ATryBox, and the good news is, it’s FREE to join.
Basically ATryBox is a new NYC based company that connects tech companies with people who are willing, and able to test out their products.
You can click the image below to watch their 1 min video
You will get sent invitations to new products via your email. You can choose to accept or decline the invitation.
The payment you receive depends on the type of test that you do. There are 5 types of tests available:
Usually bigger brands and startups might use this method as a way to get user opinions and feedback in real-time. Because it involves taking your time to commute, the price is open for you to decide how much you’ll want to be paid.
The good thing about phone calls is that you get to give live feedback, without having to commute. You’ll be asked to give your experience while using the product on the phone. They usually take around 30 minutes to complete, and shouldn’t take more than 50 minutes
With this method you will be providing feedback on things such as product design. It will usually take around 10-20 minutes to complete, but some can be up to 30 minutes.
If you choose this method you will be helping brands get data on specific questions, and will usually take 5-10 minutes to complete
This is nice and easy because you get to pick your preference over features such as colour, logo, design, name etc.
ATryBox is good for anyone who is looking to make some extra money online. If you enjoy giving your opinions and feedback, you can get paid to do so.
Well, other than getting paid, there are also some other features you can expect to get:
You get fixed prices on the tests that you do (except Personal Meetings)
You get to choose the methods of testing you want to do. So if you’re someone who hates phone calls, but loves surveys, then you can decline a specific test.
If you’re at home or travelling, all the tests (expect Personal Meetings), can be done remotely.
You can expect to receive payments within 7 days of completing the test.
Payment is made through Venmo. If you don’t have a Venmo account, then you can create one when you receive your first payment. Venmo is part of Paypal, and charges no commission, so you actually get what you earn.
So if you’ve read this review and thought…”I’m ready to get started”, then click the link below to start making some extra money online.
As I am not a US resident, I am unable to give you my own personal experiences with this website. However, I would really like to know what your experiences are, and whether you think it’s a good way to make some extra money online. It’s free to join so there’s nothing to lose. Please share them in the comments below. I really look forward to hearing your thoughts on this website…and hopefully soon it’ll be available internationally.
