Easy1up Review: Is It Too Good to Be True

I have tried signing up to Easy1up before, but before I could go further there were quite a few alarm bells that made me wary. I looked a little into it and I honestly feel that whoever uses it must be very careful. Here is my review of Easy1up.

The person I came in contact with was too friendly and it just shouted: BEWARE!

Easy1up, What Does It Have?

There is no tangible product or service it offers to its users at all. The main focus of Easy1up is to recruit members to its ranks and to get money from new users throguh affliates. They mention you can get 4 figure income by rising up their ranks and the only to raise up their ranks is to pay $$$. That is non-refundable and as much as they pertain no guarantees to make money.  

The Good & the Bad & the Ugly

Easy1up is still good, right?

  • There seems to be support from other members that help each other out and give ways to recruit new members to their team. They are really friendly actually.
  • Seems to pay people with affiliate scheme which has high %.Easy1up is still good, right? Y…NO

The Bad:

  • The owner Peter Wolfgang has had a number of systems he has raised up such as Turbo Cycler, Business Toolbox, Infinity 100, Pay Me Forward and National Wealth Center. Though seems that National Wealth Center is the only business left standing. Most of businesses seem to paint itself as money making educational system but it does not give its users enough to go on.
  • The business model seems to be a MLM (Multi-layer Marketing) scheme (you only make money by recruiting others) and does not seem to benefit you unless you are at the top of the scheme. The only problem the scheme does not really give you things tangible to sell so very much like P…p…pyramid scheme.
  • It is full of promises but does not seem to be of any substance, it just seems to really promise these 4 figure income without a good plan to make $$$ accept from promoting them. 
  • It has very few positive reviews and a lot of bad reviews, but they have cleaned it up a bit.
  • No free trial and has no refunds. Really doesn’t give you a choice does it?

The Ugly:

  • The owner has been in quite a few scams already
  • That near-fanatical zealousness does make you want to shout: WAKE UP!
  • Bringing up internet business needs time and effort and not just $$$. Even if you are strapped on cash you should not be left out because you have pay US$1,000 for all the lessons.

Who is Easy1up For?

I really finding it hard to recommend it to anyone as they prey on people’s expectations to make money and just too good to be true. They have no alternatives for you to make money and just taking someone’s money without even a good policy is ALARM BELLS to me. 

Easy1up still Has Support

The training does not feel up to scratch and rudimentary at best. To professional marketers they can see that it is not really a legit business model. Others members give some support but that is as good as it gets. At the very least they are friendly and give you as much support as they know how to. The introduction does seem to have a starter on what you can provide some training and direction though most you can get from the internet. 

Easy1up is Pricey

They divide their prices in parts to entice you to get better and better “training”. 

Elevation US$25 – This is suppose to give you the basics of affiliate training.
Elevation US$100
– Gives you more of the cake though just enough not to give a big picture. At least they add free Udemy training to it.
Vertex US$ 250 
– They suppose to give you stronger training on affiliate marketing, but now seems weird: e.g Passion to Profit is lesson. Does not seem as training of substance.
Vertex Elite 
US$ 500 – This them selling you traffic which is a no-no in affiliate marketing.
Vertex Pro “Core” US$ 1,000
– This is where they make you look like a legitimate business. As you can see, the basic lesson of FB branding and business building which should come earlier on is only there when you paid them a lot of $$$. Which most of us do not always have. 

My Thoughts on Easy1up

I seriously find it hard to recommend a product that promises too much without a legit way to grow and flourish your business. Most of the lessons inside their plan seems to be copped out from affliate lingo which is suppose to persuade you and the “elite” RSVP and zeal these coaches have makes it dodgey. 

Seriously, if it is a good product they will always need hard work good planning.

This is What Taught me That…

Swagbucks: Making Money from Online Surveys & Videos

Swagbucks is another great way to make some extra money online. It it one of the most reputable websites where you can do surveys, watch videos and install & try out apps for their online money. That online money can in turn be exchanged for for rewards such as gift cards and money.

What is So Good About Swagbucks?

So what makes Swagbucks so good?

Well, it is one of the most reputable survey sites out there where you can use. It is used by a lot of students and some households online to make and extra buck as you only have to watch videos or do a survey.

The videos are generally short & easy to watch and surveys quick to do. So you can actually earn Swagbucks (their internal monetary system) fairly quickly. If you spend most of your time on a computer they try to make it fun with games and music as well.

You can also draw money easily to Amazon, Walmart giftcards which is quite useful or just for cash into your Paypal account. It generally takes a few days and most users have very little complaints of redeeming their Swagbucks.

Too Bad:

You still have to watch and do the videos or surveys which means you have to take time on your computer or mobile still. And you have to do quite a few of them to actually make some money. As mentioned 1000SB = £5 or US$10, therefore to technically make money you would have to watch approx. 200 videos/survey with time of 1~2mins. A bit time consuming you are a outgoing person.

It is geographically restricted it is only really usable in the US, UK or Australia, which too bad for other countries.

If you do not use Amazon giftcards or Paypal it might be a little harder to get paid.

Is Swagbucks Legit?

Well it is one of the more trusted survey sites out there. It even has it’s own Wikipedia page which shows how much notoriety it has gained. If you look at the Better Business Bureau it has an A rating. There has been no complaints from my side or on the forums (most complaints are the providers themselves). So feel free to try it.

So is Swagbucks for you?

Maybe, but only if you are in the US, UK or Australia. This is a really down side as for others who want to earn money it is just so much harder. If you are a student that is looking to make a few bucks on they wayside or looking for another income as you just arrived in mentioned countries. This is one of the best methods to help with a few expenses or for some “beermoney”.

Is There Training or Support?

Swagbucks provides a small video of how they do things and will also send you the occasional pointer to your email to help you get along. To use Swagbucks one you get going, is generally easy to get into.

Also a great way to get some support from others it to use Swagbucks reddit forum in which they discuss problems that you might encounter when using Swagbucks.

You have to Pay for Swagbucks?

No, you basically sign-up and you get straight into business. Though you might have to fill a few of your details though you can use it at your leisure. So it worth trying out.

Here it is if you feel like trying it out. 

In Conclusion

As mentioned Swagbucks is actually one of the better sources of income if you want to make money from home and it can be a steady source of income if you have some time to spend on it. If you looking for longer steady source of income it might be better to try blogging (internet marketing).  There is another site called Earnhoney (which I wrote about) where is not geographically restricted.

Though it is just best for the time being or for spare change.

So is Swagbucks Legit? Can you make money from it? VERDICT: LEGIT, and plausible but not for steady income.
