No Longer Supporting Follow My Downline and Payza

Every few weeks I review income opportunities and web services and decide if I should continue to support them, or withdraw my support of them.  In my latest review, there are 2 websites that I no longer support or recommend to my readers.  If you are a member of these programs, or are thinking of joining please ensure you do your research.

1) Follow My Downline

fmdheaderFollow My Downline (FMD) was launched earlier this year by the owner of TripleQUIKads, Allan (theguru) as an all-in-one downline builder system.   After the server crash that took down TQA and all the SafeAdZone websites, Follow My Downline managed to get relaunched pretty quick and appears to have continued to grow in members.

Unfortunately, recent events (that can not be mentioned here) have me greatly questioning the integrity and ethics of the ownership of the program, and the maintenance of the system.  As such, I am withdrawing all support and no longer recommending Follow My Downline or any programs associated with the ownership of the program.

2) Payza (formerly Alertpay)

For those involved in the Internet Marketing / MLM industry, the last 12 months have see a major shakeup in the area of payment processors thanks to the problems surrounding Alertpay.

After halting credit card payments for months on end, Alertpay eventually became Payza, leaving many people with a bad taste in their mouth.  At first, it appeared that Payza would simply be like Alertpay, but the more I look at it the less I like.  The final straw came with the Egopay processor, which quite frankly has me questioning the very legality of the Payza / Egopay systems.

Do Your Research!

Please do your OWN research before making a decision with regards to these, or any opportunity / website.   While I offer my own thoughts on these programs, each of them should be viewed with an open mind.  Please do your own research and decide if these programs / services are for you, based on your own findings.

A note about the SafeAdZone / TQA programs.  If you were a member of TQA / SAZ programs and have not done so yet head over to http://safeadzone.com and fill in your details to stay informed.  Alternatively contact either Allan or Clint with any questions or concerns about your purchased advertising.

Changes At TQA – Are You Paying Attention?

Those who know me are probably aware of the events of the last few weeks.  I’ve been keeping myself busy with my job as a stock taker and have been asked to train as a supervisor, so i’m really keen to get involved with that.  There have been some pretty drastic changes on the home business front also; centering primarily around my stepping down and walking away as a co-owner of the Leveraged List Mailer; TripleQUIKads (TQA).

My reasons for leaving are unimportant to the general readership of this site so I wont bore you with details.  Needless to say, I have had a few tell me that they’re not too keen on heavily promoting it now that I am not involved.  I thank you all for your incredible support and show of faith in my reputation and integrity, it is truly humbling to know that so many of you put their faith in TQA because I was involved.  I can’t tell you to keep promoting TQA anymore than i can tell you to stop.  You must decide that for yourself.  Those really concerned about my departure are more than welcome to contact me.

What now?  Well i’ll still be around as a regular member of the programs.  Between work, my web design business and my MLM work (Quik Family, etc), i’m keeping myself incredibly busy!

ResidualQUIK Site Review

ResidualQUIK

The online advertising mlm industry is full of websites claiming to provide great advertising and an opportunity to get some cash-back in the process. As you can imagine, this is a pretty hectic industry to try and compete in, and to be honest, very few people ever create a product as good as they claim.

So you can probably imagine how reluctant I was to review ResidualQUIK, a new site that launched in the last few days. I know what you’re thinking, “oh no, not another scam site”. You know, i don’t blame you, this industry is full of them. However, I did take the time to review ResidualQUIK and the results are rather shocking!

Who Are ResidualQUIK?

As always, my first step is to find out who runs the show; who’s behind “ResidualQUIK“? As it turns out, the people behind the website are quite well known in the industry. Clint Clark and Mark Rosen are 2 guys behind some incredibly successful websites in the same webspace as ResidualQUIK, including RevenueMagic, SuccessQUIK, ListQUIK and WidgetQUIK (among others). These guys know their stuff and have positive feedback out the wazoo regarding their online advertising services.

Navigation?

The site has 2 menu systems. The top menu appears to be for public pages which are primarily for information on the site or for access to join or login to the site. Once logged in, a new menu appears running down the left of the page which looks to be a javascript slide menu. It works well in both Firefox and IE8, so seems pretty compatible with the latest browsers. The menu items are nicely broken down into categories for ease of navigation.

The site design is simple with a basic header and background, which adds to the aesthetic of the overall website.

Residual… how so?

Ok, the next thing i was curious about is this whole “residual” thing the site has going on. I trust these guys can offer great advertising but very few people have managed to nail down a truly successful residual system in the past. Eventually, money coming in and money going out never meet, and cause a dead-end on the residual front.

ResidualQUIK apparently have this feature known as the “Commission Doubler”, which provides members a means to earn a $2 doubler bonus for every new and renewal direct referral. That’s pretty nifty, as it would ensure funds are always being pumped into the doubler matrix, regardless of new members joining. Not bad at all. It turns out this is actually the bonus matrix, as there’s also the regular 3×15 matrix which has a “three and your free” fast start system.

A dual income system that creates a seemingly self-perpetuating-cycle.

The Product, Benefits & Reality

At the end of the day, the most important question is what are you getting for your money, how will you benefit from it and is it REALISTIC. That last part is the most important thing, as a great product that’s not based in reality is useless.

The Advertising system looks to be the same or similar to RevenueMagic, which has an outstanding reputation and from sources i’ve spoken to, a great “return value” – ie. the advertising works.

The advertising itself goes across all the sites in the network, and are apparently seen by over 20,000 unique viewers; impressive numbers by anybodys standards. When selecting how to advertise with your points, you get a selection of options from banners, text ads, solo ads, etc. Definitely a quality product considering who is managing the campaigns.

One thing Clint and Mark have shown over the years is that their advertising is great for all niches, so regardless what you’re marketing, their ad systems should benefit you.

So is it realistic? To be honest, yes. When you weigh up the quality of the advertising and the range of the advertisings “reach”, this is one of the most realistic ad systems in it’s webspace.

Can I trust them with my money?

I don’t know about you, but I always ask myself this question when looking at ANY website that involves a transaction. Can you trust the guys running the show. Do they have a quality payment system, FAQs, Terms and Privacy details? The first thing you’ll notice is they don’t accept Paypal, which i personally highly approve of. Instead they use Alert Pay, which is quickly becoming as good, or better than Paypal in the online marketing niche. Alert Pay authorise all sites they work with, so you can trust that in order for ResidualQUIK to use Alert Pay, they first must be approved, which they are.

Furthermore, the company actually advertises for it’s members, so while you’re paying them and get great advertising in return, not to mention the dual-income system, they’re also marketing for the members on top of all that. Not many companies put their own money back into the members like that; a big kudos i say.

Bonuses?

This is interesting… the idea of bonuses or contests is nothing new in this industry, so to stand out and be different the guys at ResidualQUIK have 3 great ways of offering bonuses to all members. The first, company advertising we just talked about. It’s the Cash Contests that are the bigger bonus here.

For every sale at ResidualQUIK, the company puts $1 into a pool. This pool is them split among members, which 50% going to the top referrers and 50% going to 10 random members who have at least 1 direct referral in that month. Best of all, this $1 applies to all sales, including renewals, so the pool grows exponentially each month.

Conclusion…

ResidualQUIK is kind of unique in the industry because of all it’s features; all of which are high quality and and beneficial to members. The price is more than reasonable, and on the low-side when compared to some lesser-competitors. If you’re after a great advertising system that has a very high chance of providing a quality residual income, this is most definitely worth a look.
