During August, I published a review of the Instant Payday Network. Since then, I have received a number of email from people who have looked into this program. The results have been equally divided. Half of the people who have reviewed it think it is legitimate, and the other half think it is a scam. At the time I wrote my first review, I decided to sign up and check it out.
How Does the Instant Payday Network Work
This is a million dollar question. Before answering, let me go through a quick review of what I explained in the previous article.
Jeff Buchanan, creator of the Instant Payday Network, gives an excellent presentation. But most sharp business people always give good presentations. Mr Buchanan claims that by referring business to various Fortune 500 Companies, you will be paid a commission. To refer business to these companies, it is necessary that you go to a landing page, known as Express – My Cash Freebies and try out some of the products offered with the goal of obtaining one full credit. Then, you are directed to another page, Double My Cash Freebies and encouraged to get one full credit from this page, again by trying out products.
When Jeff Buchanan said that he never asks you for any money, he was correct. However, you will have to spend a little money to try the products. This was a problem with Express – My Cash Freebies because the offers were structured in a way that I had to give my credit card information to get the credit, but got nothing from the companies for my effort. Subsequently, I called the companies and cancelled the offers, assuring that my credit card would not be charged, which was not an easy task. With Double My Cash Freebies however, the situation was a little different. To earn my full credit here, I purchased two products that I wanted anyway. GoDaddy was one of the offers, and I needed a domain name, so I purchased one for $7.99. Another offer was from Thompson Cigar, and being an occasional cigar smoker, I decided to buy some cigars. I purchased a dozen cigars. Included with this purchase was a beautiful cherry wood cigar humidor, a very fine cigar and pipe lighter and a good cigar cutter. The total purchase was around $19.99. Even though I had to spend a little money to earn my one full credit, I did get something in return.
After all of this, which incidentally took about six hours to complete, I had my one full credit for both the Express – My Cash Freebies, and the Double My Cash Freebies. According to Jeff Buchanan, once you receive your one full credit for each program, you are set for life. Then I asked myself the very important question, “What now?”
Where Does The Money Come From?
If the previous question was a million dollar question, the question is a ten million dollar question. I did exactly what Mr. Buchanan recommended, which was, send traffic to my Instant Payday Network link. Mr. Buchanan recommends that you advertise your link on Craigslist. Don’t do this. For some reason, Craigslist despises the Instant Payday Network. Post your ad there, and it will be ghosted every time. So, I generated a lot of traffic through other networks.
Just as he claims, I received a large number of referrals and sign-ups. I have yet to see a dime deposited to my PayPal account. Mr. Buchanan is promoting a product, the Instant Payday Network. But what exactly is the product he is promoting? This is what has me, and many others scratching their heads.
The Problems With the Instant Payday Network
I had no problem testing this program. I have the money to try out these programs so I can report the results to my readers. I did spend a little money, but I received something in return. I guess you can say, in a monetary sense, I was not scammed. But I had to do a lot of work to get those two credits. Most people would not have the patience to go through such an experience. A program like this should be designed in a way that is easy to follow. The Instant Payday Network is not easy. On the contrary, it is very confusing. Many people would work for about an hour to earn their two credits, and then, just give up. This is very simple to understand, considering that no one has invested any money at this point.
Three basic principles of any program offered are as follows:
- First, the program should be designed to solve a problem. The Instant Payday Network claims that it will solve your money problem by offering an opportunity to earn a five digit monthly income, just for referring business to Fortune 500 Companies.
- Second, the program should be designed to work fast. This program does not do this. While earning your two full credits, you could very well find yourself sitting at the computer for several hours, or even several days before earning those credits. Most intelligent people would suddenly realize that their time could be more productive elsewhere.
- Finally, the program should be easy to follow. I think I have made the point that the Instant Payday Network is not easy. It is very confusing.
Another thing Mr. Buchanan does in his presentation is refer people to another program. According to his presentation, the Instant Payday Network, in and of itself, is fine. But if you want to really make some big money, like an extra $15,000 plus monthly, he encourages you to check out another program. This program is known as the Empower Network. You may have heard of this. I don’t know much about this program, except for what I have learned through research.
- The Empower Network is based in Costa Rice
- The cost to join is $25 per month. For this, you just get a blog site.
- In order to get paid, you have to spend an extra $19.95 per month.
- If you want to really make some serious money, you have to join their Inner Circle Membership, for an extra $100 per month.
- To reach the $15,000 a month level, you have to pay an extra one time fee of $995. This is just the beginning. The up sales continue.
- On a scale of A to F, the Empower Network has a D rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Need I go on? As you can see, the Empower Network is loaded with up sales. There are no trial offers. People either join, or they don’t. No one knows exactly what the program is. Some say that it is an online pyramid scheme. The product that is being promoted is nothing but hot air.
I have given you my personal experience with the Instant Payday Network. Now, I am going to ask another question, “Is the Instant Payday Network a scam?” Well, to answer this, I was not scammed by the Instant Payday Network. But I have yet to see any payout. The Instant Payday Network will not scam you. But is the program itself is a scam? I don’t think so. In order to be a scam, a program has to be something. The Instant Payday Network is not a scam. It is worse than a scam. The Instant Payday Network is NOTHING.
I did the work. I received my two full credits. I sent traffic to my landing page. I recruited some signups. So now, Mr. Buchanan, I ask you:
Where’s the Money?
