This review is going to be on a website called Explosive Payday. What is Explosive Payday? Is it a scam? Or a legitimate opportunity for you to make money online? I will be focusing on this and couple more issues in my review.
I highly encourage that you spend a few minutes to read this review thoroughly as it might actually save you a couple hundreds of dollars or even more.
Alright without further ado, let’s get things rolling…
Name: Explosive Payday
Owner: Kelly Simmons
Price: “Free to try” but pay $9.95? $29.95/month thereafter?
Explosive PayDay Overview
I’m not sure about you, but few days ago I received this email in my inbox with the caption “Facebook Money”. Inside the email, it mentioned something about making money with Facebook and they included me a link to click. The link was http://facebook.com-work-from-home-start-today.com.
At first, I was skeptical of opening that link, thinking that it might be a spam or virus. But since it said something to do with making money through Facebook, I was very curious so I opened it. After going through that website and their promoted program, Explosive Payday, I immediately figured out that this is just another scam.
What Exactly Is Explosive Payday all about?
So the question is what is Explosive Payday really all about?
The website did mention a few things.
- Post links
- Share stories
- Review sites
- Complete other simple tasks
However, there is no concrete evidence to support that any of this is related to Facebook at all.
This is kinda funny. They photoshopped an image just to make it look real. “We have 75 articles for you to share today. Please check your explosive Payday account for specific details.” And even went on to say that every article is worth $96.
Yea right, just share one article and you make $96. If that’s the case, I don’t think anybody needs to work anymore. Everyone can do this and expect easy money. You know what’s the funniest thing on top of all? Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, liked the Post. 😆
Well, some of you might had already have an idea that this is a scam. But I think there might be some naïve people who believe in such things. I’m sorry, but none of this is true. So be careful when you come across such things.
This image claimed to be from Martin S. Russo, a father of two, who was invited to try this program. First of all, just to clear the confusions, Martin S. Russo, is just a pen name on some random stock photo. This guy probably never heard of this program in the first place.
The image you see above is from a Google AdSense account. Google AdSense has NOTHING to do with Facebook. Google AdSense is added to blog/websites and whenever someone clicks on the Ads, you get paid an amount depending on the bid for the ad.
How do I know? I have several websites that run solely on Google AdSense. Yes, you can definitely earn over $15,000 a month solely relying on Google AdSense. However, to get that amount, you need to have tons of visitors coming to your website every day.
The image above is definitely misleading in every aspect. You can see that this image was from 2011. In this 5 years, a lot of things have changed with Google AdSense. Most particularly, they have become more stringent. I agree that in the past you might be able to pull off that amount of money easily but now, like I said earlier, you really need a very high amount of traffic to get the figures. It’s possible but NOT easy as you might think.
For those of you wondering how much some of my Google AdSense sites earn per month. Some sites earn up $500 per month while some go as low as $50 per month. Yes, I am making money but it’s not a great deal of amount. However, it does accumulate into a decent amount across every website.
Issue #1: Website records IP address and shows accordingly
So what do I mean by the above?
Ok… while reading through the content you will notice that the country you live in is mentioned in the entire article.
Is it a coincidence that the website you opened is hiring people from the country you live in?
The answer is NO!
What is happening here is, this website is programmed in such a way that it is able to track your IP Address and thus shows you accordingly the country you live in.
Issue #2: The News Video Presentation is Misleading
You will see this news presentation video on Explosive Payday’s landing page. Before you come to the conclusion that Explosive Payday came out on the news, let me explain to you the truth.
The truth is, Explosive Payday didn’t come out in CNN news or any other news. Of course, it wouldn’t come out because it is simply a scam. What’s happening here is the owner of Explosive Payday took a video related to making money online and edited it with the program on the video to make it look legit.
I will give the person an “A” for his/her effort but an “F” for unethically trying to mislead people into believing that this program has appeared on the news.
Issue 3: Availability Checker is Fake
Just below the news video, you will see an availability checker there. This checker is there to help you check whether there are any spots available left for you.
Really? Nah, obviously not…
The availability checker is FAKE!
Of course, I can prove to you…
Ok once you enter all the necessary details and click the check button, you will come to this page where it seems to verify whether a spot is still available out of the “50 spots”. And then it confirms that you get one of the 3 spots remaining.
Like I said earlier, this who check is fake. It’s just programmed in such a way that it seem like it’s checking something… but in reality, it isn’t checking anything in real-time.
Every time you will see the same numbers over and over again. 50 spots… 3 spots remaining…
If you don’t believe me, you can try this days, weeks or even months later… I can strongly assure you that you will see the exact same numbers as what you saw initially.
Some of you might be wondering, what’s the purpose of the availability checker if it doesn’t even work. Well, it’s there for marketing purposes. Basically, they want people to sign up immediately thinking that if they don’t, they will lose their spot.
I have seen this exact thing in many scam programs too so it’s nothing shocking to me.
Issue 4: “Work at home opportunities have been featured on…”
On their website, you will also see these logos saying, “Work From Home Opportunities Have Been Featured On: MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, USA TODAY & ABC”.
Firstly did you notice that it mentioned Work From Home Opportunities Have Been Features On… instead, it should have been Explosive Payday Have Been Featured On…
Yea, this is a small giveaway from their side. What they did was take this image from Google. Copied. And Pasted… to make it look as if theirs is real. Anybody can just grab an image online and claim it as theirs. You can too. Just Google “as featured on” and go to the image section. You will see a ton of different images.
Actually, you don’t need to look so far. Explosive Paydays have already given a clue about this on their disclaimer section.
Well, the image is kinda small. The deliberately made it small because they don’t want anybody to really read this.
For the benefit of everyone, I will explain what they said in words…
” This program is advertised on but not associated, affiliated, endorsed, or sponsored by Google, YouTube, Digg, Blogger, Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Yahoo, ABC, CNN or CNBC nor have they been reviewed tested or certified by Google, YouTube, Digg, Blogger, Twitter, Yahoo, ABC, CNN or CNBC. All trademarks, logos, and service marks displayed are registered and/or unregistered Trademarks of their respective owners”
Well, the disclaimer section here has summed up everything about their website and program. Meaning, everything is not real, just made up for promotional purposes.
My Final Thoughts.
I can go on and on about the different red-flags found in this program but I am not going to do that because it is definitely a waste of time. I believe the above are more than enough to prove to you that Explosive Payday is a scam and has NOTHING to do with Facebook or making.
The question is can you over $10,000 per month with Explosive Payday? Well, I don’t think that should even be the question you want to be asking in the first place. You should be asking, whether one can make money with Explosive Payday?
The answer is No. You probably won’t even make a dime with Explosive Payday. In fact, you are only going to end up losing money. $9.95 + $29.95/month. That money definitely can be put to better use, like going on a family dinner. Trust me, it’s way more worthwhile than throwing your money unnecessarily on a program like this.
Final Verdict: Scam, Not Recommended
My #1 Recommendation!
For those of you who are serious about making money online, I highly recommend that you start your own online business. Remember Google AdSense? That is one way you can make money online. My most favourite way is Affiliate Marketing. Basically, you promote someone else’s products/services and earn commissions.
The idea of building an online business is very simple and straight forward.
- Select A Niche (interest or passion)
- Build A Website
- Write Content
- Monetize your website & Earn revenue
This 4 steps can go a long way in generating you part-time or full-time income online. Although the 4 steps seem easy, it is not easy as A,B or C. You have to work and dedicate enough time in order to see results. You can’t expect to make money within a day or week.
If you work hard and put in the effort, I can guarantee you that you will do good. Well, you can take me as a living example. About a year ago, I ventured into online business(Affiliate Marketing + Google AdSense) and have quit my job in a few months and now I am doing this full time. Am now earning almost triple of what I earned in my day job. All these didn’t happen immediately. I worked hard for it, now I am enjoying and living every moment.
If you are looking for a legit program to get started with your online business, I Recommend Wealthy Affiliate. This is the exact program that turned my life around. You can get started for absolutely free although they have a paid membership which I highly recommend if you are really serious about building a successful future.
Alright, I have come to the end of my review on Explosive Payday. I do hope by now you have a better understanding of what this program is all about and whether it is something for you or not. Those of you who have personally tried this program can share your experience in the discussion section below. Other opinions or questions are always welcomed too.
Thanks for reading…
And I wish you success 🙂
