Overall Rating: 1/5 stars
This is yet another program that I heard about only when it popped into my email a couple of days ago. So, of course, I knew I had to look into it.
The one thing that caught my eye right away is that it had the magic word attached to it: FREE and who doesn’t love anything that is free right?
Once I clicked on it I knew that I was in for a ride and that’s when I fell into the 12 Minute Payday scam.
Yes, guys, this is yet another one of my misadventures into a program that fell into the scam zone.
I know what you are probably saying right now, how did you know it was a scam?
Well, I had my first clue the moment I arrived on the website. It started typically like most scam programs do with a very long and boring video.
This video showed a man named Justin James that talked about how I could make thousands if not millions of dollars for free.
Of course, to back up this statement, he claimed that he had ordinary people just like you and I try out this system and about how much money people have made from it.
Of course, these people made all of this money for free!!
The truth of the matter is that all of these people that run programs like this are all the same.
They all claim how easy it is to use their system, how easy it is to earn thousands of dollars in a short amount of time and how to do it with little or no work involved.
Brief Background on Justin James and How He Earned $2.5 Million in Such a Short Time
Justin James, the creator of 12 Minute Payday does share some insight into his back story and how he was able to earn $2.5 Million in just a short amount of time.
Just like all other scammers in the internet marketing industry he tells us a story of how he worked with a guy who created this system (of course he doesn’t say what this system really is)
While the guy paid him minimum wage while he was off living his life, he made Justin a millionaire. rs.
Needless to say, Justin then went on, copied this guy’s system, was fired from his job and went on to make millions of dollars.
But this just wasn’t enough for him. Being the stand-up and honest guy that he is (I rolled my eyes at this point); Justin wanted to share this system with other people so they can be financially free as well.
Also, because he is such a great person he wanted to give this system away for absolutely free. How nice of him, right?
How This System Works
Once I managed to get through the upsells and pay for the lowest membership, I was finally able to get into the member’s area.
Upon entering my login in credentials, I was immediately greeted with a welcome message that urged me to call a number that would link me to my “millionaire mentor.”
Of course, I didn’t call them because again I have been through all of this before.
I know that upon calling that phone number I would be automatically connected to some high-pressure sales person who would push me to invest in some other B.S product that I don’t really need and that they want me to spend thousands of dollars on. So, I just ignored it and moved on.
In the member’s area, it’s broken down into 4 modules, each containing their own training video, promotional banners, and action buttons.
Some of the products that they recommend for you to promote to increase your earnings is a program called Guaranteed Wealth which I know for a fact is a binary trading scam.
The main way that this program works is by you plastering your capture page anywhere and everywhere that you can, getting people to put in their email details into the capture page and by you selling to them using your autoresponder.
The only way that you will make money is by having your leads buy the product you’re promoting, also known as an affiliate product. Surprisingly, this is not unlike many of the programs out there today.
In order for it to work and in order for you to make money, you need to gain A LOT of traffic and to generate a lot of signups. The more traffic and sign-ups you have, the more money you can make.
Module: 1 The Getting Started System
In this main section, you can find all of the templates that you paid for when you bought into the system.
Even after spending $47 or $9, you only have access to 1-5 of these templates. There is a total of 15 templates, but you cannot unlock them all until you pay for the first upsell.
In the next section of your supposed “training”, the system recommends that you register with an autoresponder. The program that they recommend is called GVO, which many are unaware is connected to another scam system called Pure Leverage.
While there are much cheaper options out there for autoresponders, signing up with this particular one means that you will have to spend $25 extra a month.
The whole purpose of your autoresponder is to collect all of your leads and sell to them to make the money. However, there are much cheaper options like Aweber out there.
For someone with internet marketing experience such as myself, you can already see the first flaws in this system begin to emerge.
Right off the bat, you need to apply email marketing with this system, and without knowing the basics, this can land any beginner into trouble immediately.
Module 2: Setting Up Your System
This module is primarily focused on setting up your capture pages with your autoresponder so you can start generating money. This module is broken up into a few sections.
1. Creating Optin- This is yet another training section that is focused on teaching you how to use your GVO autoresponder and how to create individual forms for each template.
2. Commission Account- For this section, you are asked to sign up for an account with Clicksure. This is a website that is similar to Clickbank and this is not something that I recommend.
Most of the products (about 99% of them) are downright scams.
3. Manage Clicks- In this section, you are asked to sign up for an account with a site called Click.org.
This is something that is not even needed, but this only throws you into more confusion. Also, this is another way for them to make even more money off of you.
4. Double Email Profits- This is one section that finally the program recommends as being optional. This is a product called EPC Maximizer.
To be honest I am not really sure what it even does but there is a full detailed account on how to use it on this page.
5. Traffic Pool- This is the second upsell that you hit with the moment you arrive in the member’s area. In my opinion, it is absolutely useless.
This upsell goes for $34.95 a month and it is not even needed.
This is just another way that the creators of this system want to yank even more money out of your wallet.
Module 3: Actually Making Money
In this section, you can look forward to seeing three individual tabs. However, one of these tabs have been removed so really you only have two tabs that you can access.
There is a section that is labeled, “Get Commissions,” but this is a section I don’t recommend going through at all.
In this section, it is recommended that you sign up for two programs, one of which is a program called Webfire and that will run you about $347 right off the bat.
Webfire is a program that is used to help you get to the #1 spot in Google for your selected keyword.
Take it from me it doesn’t work and it is a total waste of money. The second product is called 6 Figure Traffic and it is just as bad as Webfire.
Module 4: VIP Bonuses
Typically when you are offered bonuses for a program, they are supposed to be FREE. But this is a scam we are talking about so of course, these bonuses have to be paid for. Here are just a few of the bonuses that are offered and that you are expected to buy:
- 5 Minute Mogul- This program says that it is free, but after doing some research I found that the program has a price tag of $997.
- Avoid Scams- This section is a bit laughable since this program is a scam in itself and offers some helpful tips to avoid getting scammed out there on the Internet.
- Of course, there are programs here that they recommend that are not scams such as Magnetic Profits. This is yet another product that you have to buy as well.
- Mail Creative File- This one is probably the only true bonus that this program offers. This downloadable bonus offers a ton of scripts that have been pre-written and that you can upload into your autoresponder in just a few simple clicks.
Pros and Cons
- Get free capture page template when you sign up
- -Too many upsells
- -Sets up unrealistic dreams of making thousands of dollars in just a few weeks
- -You need to sign up to too many programs to make the system work
- -You are asked to spend over $3000 on the products that you are recommended to
- -Use of deceptive marketing tactics to get you to sign up
Can You Expect Any Kind Of Support?
Unfortunately, the only way you are going to get close to any kind of support system is a basic FAQ section, but even there it only offers basic solutions to some of the questions that you may have answered.
If you are looking to get a refund for this product, good luck.
Below I found a message posted onto another review site where the woman thought she was messaging the owner of the program directly and it is nice to see her unbiased thoughts on the program itself.
The True Cost of This System
Let’s break it down how much money you are asked to spend on this program so that you can see for yourself how much money you are being asked to spend:
- 12 Minute Payday-$9 to $47 for lifetime access
- GVO Autoresponder-$25 a month
- Traffic Pool-$34.95 a month
- Webfire and 6 Figure Traffic-$347-$647 for lifetime access
- 5 Minute Mogul Bonus-$997
These are the prices that I could find and this doesn’t even include all of the upsells and programs you are recommended to buy into.
Just here is over $2,000 just to make money!!
To make money, you shouldn’t have to invest quite this much, especially for a program that can’t guarantee actual results.
You could get a 5-year membership to my #1 recommended internet marketing training center for less than you will pay for this program, and get personal help and support directly from me and many other experienced internet marketing veterans.
How Does This Program Compare To My #1 Recommendation That Has Made Me Lots Of Money Online? Let’s Find Out Below!
My Final Opinion
In all honesty, the 12 Minute Payday system is set up in such a way that you are asked to refer customers to a GVO autoresponder in order to make money.
While it is true that marketing in such a way can make you money, the truth of the matter is that if you don’t know what you are doing, you will not make a dime.
Even though, the creators of this system claim that it’s a great program for beginners and experienced marketers alike, it’s clear that this is not a system for people with absolutely no experience at all.
Of course, the free capture templates are a great idea, but that is it.
Everything about this program screams SCAM and with all of the lies and deceptions from the moment you sign up, this is not a program that I would recommend.
I recommend staying as far away from this program as humanly possible!!
The truth is that you are not going to make thousands of dollars just by using this system.
It is very flawed and just by other reviews and evidence that I have gathered it is clear that nobody has made thousands of dollars by using it. Just do yourself a favor and stay away from.
There are much better ways to learn how making money on the internet works without having to risk losing lots of your hard earned money.
Do you have a personal experience with this program that you would like to share with everyone here today? I would love to hear about it and I’m sure that other people would as well.
You’ll be helping other people avoid becoming Justin’s next victim and helping them keep more of their hard earned money in their wallet.
