If you’ve never heard of Project Payday then, in short, it’s another business opportunity for people who want to make money online. Whether you’ll make money is a different story, but anyway …
I stumbled across this biz op, because there were a lot of people still searching for Project Payday in Google, even though it launched a little while back.
So this intrigued me enough to do a little research on them to get the skinny on whether they were legit or another online waste-of-time.
Why listen to me?
Well, I earn a full-time living through affiliate marketing, you can see some proof of income and the program I recommend here.
But since this is a review on Project Payday, I’ll talk about that first.
Turns out … the business model is fairly simple, and understanding it helped me to know why there is still a lot of interest in the business, which I’ll get to soon.
But, what most people want to know first, is …
How do you make money with Project Payday?
Short answer is :
Option 1) Fill out Cost Per Action (CPA) offers.
Option 2) Refer other people to Project Payday and get them to do the same.
And just in case you don’t know what a CPA offer is, then in simple terms, it’s when a company pays you money (as in a few dollars – sometimes more) to find leads for their business.
So this is cool, no problem there,
A lead (which is you or someone you have referred) usually has to fill out an online form, which basically goes back to the company who has sponsored the CPA offer.
However, there are some CPA offers that require you to hand over credit card details and other personal information before they make payment.
So this can be a little dodgy if you intend on making money only by filling out CPA offers.
So imagine filling out multiple forms a day and handing out your financial details to multiple companies.
I mean … whaaaat the.
Okay, so that is not the best option – right?
But what if I just filled out the forms with fake details.
Look there’s always someone who thinks it.
Well, that my friend that is called fraud and really? For a couple bucks?
But there’s always option 2 right?
Refer other people to Project Payday and get them to fill out forms.
Did I mention that in order for you to qualify for the program you actually have to fill out at least one CPA form yourself, two if you want to go for the Pro membership.
That’s two too many for me.
Anyway, lets say you fill out two CPA offer’s, you’re now on your way to making money – right?
What you have to do next is find other people to join Project Payday and get them to do the same thing.
And this is WHY there is still a lot of interest in Project Payday.
It’s because a lot of people found out the way for them to make money in Project Payday is not by filling out forms, but by referring others and getting them to fill it out for them.
They would do the minimum requirement – (i.e) sign up for 2 offers, and then promote Project Payday in an attempt to get other people to do the heavy lifting for them.
That’s the smart way to do it, (based on this model), but sadly that’s where the process ends for most people, because this is a skill that most people do not have, and it’s not easily acquired.
It can be taught for sure, and I’ll show you how soon, but to teach the in’s and outs of affiliate marketing (which is basically what you need to know) is not as simple as showing you a couple of videos or explaining the whole business model in a few steps.
Nope, there’s more to it than that, which most people realize only after spending a stupid amount of money on opportunities (like Project Payday) that don’t work in the long run.
My Final Thoughts
So in summary you might be able to make money with Project Payday as I explained above, however there are some obvious flaws in the system. But more than that, the entire risk is on you.
You’re the one who hands over your credit card details and personal information. And you’re the one who has to deal with cancelling the offer (in time) before you get charged.
And although this might seem trivial, just ask the guys who have not been able to get out of an offer and who have ended up by having to cancel their credit cards.
But there is one element that is fundamental to making money in this business (and any online business for that matter) and that is being able to drive targeted traffic to an offer.
Case in point – how did I get you reading this post?
How did I get it, so that this page ranked on the first page of Google?
And more importantly, how did I know what you were going to type into the search engines before your typed it?
Well, let me tell you, I don’t have a crystal ball, and I am not psychic, but I do possess a number of online tools and have acquired the skills that allow me to do everything I just mentioned, and if you give me a few more mintues of your time, I can show you how you can do it too.
