This review is going to be about a program called Facebook Bonanza. What is Facebook Bonanza? Is it a scam? Or a legitimate opportunity for you to earn revenue online? I will be focusing on this and a couple more issues in this review.
I highly encourage that you spend a couple of minutes to thoroughly read this review as it might actually save you a couple hundreds of dollars or even more.
Alright without further ado, let’s get things rolling…
Name: Facebook Bonanza
Price: $47 per month + many upsells
Facebook Bonanza Overview
A couple of days back I saw a handful of people promoting this program called Facebook Bonanza on social media. Like always, they made ridiculous, too good to be true earning claims such as making hundreds and thousands of dollars per day. I have to say they did a good job on promoting the program because it caught my attention and made me click their link.
I came into this website with quite a high expectation but I have to say, they disappointed me. One glance at the entire site, I already understood that this is nothing but a scam. Unfortunately, not everybody would be able to point out straight away as me because I have over a year of experience doing reviews on legit/scam making money online programs so I could easily tell whether a program is legit or scam.
Of course, I don’t just go around bashing programs and labeling them as a scam for no reason. I have strong evidence to support my statements and that’s exactly what I am going to do here. I will go through a couple of red flags found in this website to justify my statements.
Is The News Video Presentation Legit?
I believe all of you who went to their website would have seen this news presentation. Is it really true? Did Facebook Bonanza really appear on the news? Were CNN news presenters talking about this particular program?
I’m not going to beat around the bush. The above news presentation you see is FAKE. Nothing about the Facebook Bonanza appeared on any news channels. What exactly happened here is, the video is edited. Lots of different news video sections have been cut and compiled to make it look like one video.
There are actually people providing such services where they create a news video to promote the program. One distinct place to find such gigs is Fiverr.
Just an example:
What Exactly is Facebook Bonanza all about?
I think this is the question everyone here wants to know. What is this program really about? In their sales page, there weren’t much information regarding the program.
Some of the information provided were,
- Free 1-on-1 training consultation to get you ready to earn immediately
- All the training guides and easy to follow short video tutorials
- How to get your own personal automated money making website for free
- Instant Activation
- This is Not an MLM of pyramid scheme
- This is Not a bogus data entry scam
- This is Not an envelope stuffing rip-off
- This is Not a rebate processing scam
The above is not enough to get an idea of what this program is all about. But if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, there is a disclaimer section where they have, to be honest about the program.
So this is what they said.
” This is a program to teach you how to use recommended products and services in an internet business”
Again… it still does not give a crystal clear answer. Anyway, I already have an idea of what this program is all about. Basically, you are going to be taught how to make money online by promoting products/services. How I come to a conclusion is very simple. They included ClickBank in their sales video, showing a short video and income claims.
There are only two things you can do with ClickBank. Either you sell your product or you promote someone else’s product. Selling your own products is far more complex and thus, it is obviously the second option where you promote products.
I understand some of you might have gotten the impression that you will be making money through Facebook. I also came here with that idea. But seem it isn’t that case. Seems more like you will learn how to promote ClickBank products through Facebook and earn commissions.
Actually, I am doing something very similar for a full time living online. It’s called Affiliate Marketing. You promote someone else’s products/services and earn commissions. But mine is slightly different. I don’t rely heavily on or even at all on Facebook for sales. I will talk about this slightly later on… but for now, let’s look at this program first.
How Much Does it Cost?
The original price for this program is said to be $197, but they are giving out at a discounted price of $47. This isn’t a one-off payment. You will be billed every month $47 until you cancel it.
However, seems like that’s not all you are going to have to pay. If you look carefully at their payment page. They also mentioned that you will be getting a free 10-day access to something called success road academy training. After, the trial period you will be automatically charged $1 every month till you cancel.
Seems like these guys are BIG time scammers. They deliberately fail to mention anything about this program called success road academy and also placed the words very small to make people not read it.
It is very important that you read everything carefully before you pay. If not, you could end up paying $1 every month for years and years without even finding out. The founder of this program is the one really benefiting. Just imagine if thousands of people fail to notice the added fee of $1. He could easily pocket himself additional thousand bucks a month.
I doubt this is the only upsell you will ever come across. I bet there is a couple more once you purchase the program. They would probably say, “in order to make more money, buy this or that”. That get fooled by all these. If you ask me, I wouldn’t even recommend you to spend a dime on this program.
Some Red Flags Worth Mentioning
(1) Fake Testimonials
The testimonials you see on the sales page is fake. Those images are called stock photos. In other words, one can pay a small amount of money to get the rights to use the photo in any way.
As you can see for yourself. This particular image has already been used on several different websites. Not only this but the other images are also stock photos. I don’t think I need list down the rest of it for you because this one evidence is good enough to prove what the rest will be.
(2) Fake Timer & Spots Availability
You will see the above image on their sales page. Basically, it says that only 8 spots are available and you spot will only be secured for 10 minutes.
Don’t get fooled by this. These are marketing tactics used to make people buy the program quickly. In reality, none of these works in real time. If you don’t believe me, just refresh the page. The numbers will reset back to 10 minutes. Also, even if the timer hits zero you still will be able to buy the program.
My Final Thoughts.
Honestly, I can go on and on about different red flags pointing Facebook Bonanza towards a scam. But I don’t think it is necessary for me to do so because the above is more than sufficient to categorize them as a scam. I would rather you spend that money by having a nice dinner with your family because it’s way more worthwhile then just throwing it away on a program like this.
Though I can see that they have the intention of teaching one to make money online through promoting someone else’s product. Their programs seem misleading and I get the “all over the place” feeling.
Final Verdict: Scam, Not Recommended
Remember earlier I said I have been doing Affiliate Marketing as a full-time career. Frankly speaking, it’s one of the best and most legit ways to earn income online. However, you need to have proper training & support to be successful with Affiliate Marketing. You can’t just plug in information from all over the place and start an online marketing business.
The program that I used and have been using is called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s an online training platform that teaches you from scratch to start an online business. The training and features you find at WA are second to none. The best part is unlike Facebook Bonanza, you don’t have to pay a DIME to get started. That’s right, you can try it for absolutely free.
They also do offer a premium membership. If you are serious about getting more advanced training and features, you should opt in for the paid membership. It definitely enables you to make money more quickly. All in all, this is NOT a “get rich quick” scheme. You have to put in the effort and give yourself enough time to succeed.
