Push Button Profits: Scam Or Legit?
Push Button Profits is an online program that promises you incredible, automated profits – at the click of a button.
The “push button, ” mentality plays into what a majority of people are looking for when they look to make money online.
They want something they can do really easily, in their spare time. Maybe something they can do alongside their regular job… they want to earn a good income, but they maybe don’t have any experience and are hoping that there is an easy way to achieve it.
Low and behold, after searching online they’ll likely come across thousands of opportunities – all promising the same thing: amazing profits, requiring no expertise, no experience and no EFFORT!
You can just literally push a button or two and you can generate profits on autopilot.
Unfortunately… this type of opportunity does not exist.
Everything that you do online, in order to make money, will come with some effort on your part – or a major financial investment.
So, unless you’re literally paying someone to do absolutely everything on your behalf, (which is possible, but would obviously be very expensive) then it will take some time and effort to make money online.
Today, I will be looking into Push Button Profits and giving my thoughts on whether this is a legitimate opportunity, or not. You can check out their promotional video below.
Push Button Profits Promotional Video:
What Is Push Button Profits?
Push Button Profits, is not exactly as it would appear.
It’s actually a funnel into the Traffic Authority program – and the Traffic Authority program states themselves on their disclosure, that the system is not an easy push-button one, but one that relies on hard work and effort.
So, that kind of debunks the whole premise of the push button profits program right there.
However, that aside, the idea behind this program is that you purchase one of two packages and you have products and you promote those products to others, to gain commissions.
Basically, you’ll be selling the same thing to others that you need to purchase to join.
You should never have to pay to access an affiliate program, there are thousands of affiliate programs that you can join, entirely for free.
Push Button Profits Packages:
There are two options.
With the starter package, you get the traffic optimizer an can generate $16 commissions each month, per referral.
But if anyone who goes via your link, then goes up to sign up for traffic academy, you’ll miss out on those commissions.
However, if you go for their top earner package, you will also generate the commissions for traffic academy.
The Starter Package = $47 per month.
The Top Earner Package = $144 per month.
So, the starter package includes the Traffic Optimizer – and you can have the ability here to resell this package for $16 per month.
The next thing is the main deal top earner package, including both the Traffic Adademy and the Traffic Optimizer.
You’d be able to resell the Traffic Optimizer for $40 per referral, per month, or the two together for $56 in total.
Who ever buys the above packages above, will also be buying into this deal with the intention of selling on to others for a commission too… who will then sell to others and so on and so forth.
In addition to these core packages, there are traffic packages that you’ll want your referrals to purchase and the higher the value of the package, the greater commission potential for you.
I will talk about the traffic packages in a moment.
The Magic Step:
They claim there is ONE single step to take in order to be successful and that is to “GET TRAFFIC…”
In order get that traffic, you need to purchase one of their traffic packages – even though you have NO idea where this traffic is coming from, or what the conversion rates are!
This is another major red flag. Why would you pay hundreds of dollars for a traffic source that, for all you know, could be completely useless?
They say they bypass all the difficult ways that MLM’s try and get you to recruit others …..
Such as; chasing your friends, family and anyone you can get to listen to you and just skip directly to where you need it: a profitable traffic source.
That would certainly be highly profitable, if that’s what they actually provided, but it’s not.
Expensive Traffic Packages:
What they don’t really outline in the video, is that when you “push the button,” and release this traffic that’s meant to make you thousands – you need to pay for these traffic packages too.
That is, unless you already have your own traffic source.
For example, if you’re someone who has a sizeable email list, or a website attracting thousands of visitors each month… you’d be able to promote this opportunity without buying any of their traffic packages.
I’d like to bet on the fact that anyone making reasonable money with this, is doing exactly that.
The only people who are spending hundreds or thousands on these traffic packages, will be the ones that will be losing vast amounts of money.
The traffic packages could be hundreds or thousands of dollars and their is no guarantee whatsoever that you will get a return on this investment.
At the most basic package, you’d need to spend $220 for between 170-190 clicks!
Not only is this incredibly expensive traffic… but you have no idea where it’s coming from, or if the traffic will convert into sales.
At the higher end, you could spend up to $8,397 for 8,100 to 8,400 clicks.
If you manage to bring in some referrals and they start purchasing traffic packages, then that is where you can make some of the larger commissions.
At the lower end of the scale – you could make $80, $160, or $250 commissions per traffic package.
At the higher end, you could generate $800, $1600, $3200 on traffic packages.
However, you have no idea going into this how much you’d need to spend on traffic prior to making a single sale.
Have you bought any of these traffic packages? Leave me a comment below!
Towards the end of the 35 minute long video, comes the testimonials.
Including from one guy below, who claimed he had made $37,000 within his FIRST WEEK of starting the system, saying that it was SO EASY.
It’s the testimonial section on programs like this, that end up getting to me. Because this is just playing on peoples desires and desperation.
If you sign up to this program right now, today and you do not already have a massive online following, tonnes of traffic, your own website, or an email list of thousands of people who are just waiting to jump on an opportunity like this one…
then, you will not be making thousands within the next week.
The far more likely scenario, is that you could be hundreds or thousands of dollars in debt.
Push Button Profits : Scam Or Legit?
I wouldn’t class Push Button Profits as legitimate, because they’re falsely leading people to believe that this is a simple, bush button system – where they can make huge amounts of money with no effort.
Such an opportunity, simply does not exist.
Anyone that is brand new online could easily end up seriously in debt from purchasing more and more traffic packages, in order to get a sale and make their money back.
But the traffic they’re buying will be low-quality traffic, traffic that is going to have a very low conversion rate.
With the cost of the traffic being so high per click, the chances of spending far more than you earn is highly likely, if not inevitable in most cases.
The only time I feel it would be profitable, is if you already have your own traffic source and you don’t need to buy their traffic.
From my perspective, although they talk about the structure of the business as though it’s an MLM, to me it has more resemblance to a pyramid scheme.
