This review is going to be about a website called THWGlobal.com. What is THW Global? Is it a scam? Or is it a legitimate opportunity for you to make money online? These are some of the questions that we will be focusing on in this short review.
Alright without further ado, let’s get things rolling…
Name: THW Global
Owner: Sherm Mason
Price: Free to join
THW Global Overview
THW Global looks like the “next big thing” in the online space. I have to say, I was taken back by the hype and commotion happening around it during the last few days. I reckon this to continue all the way until their launch which is on the 4th of July 2016.
As of Today(while writing this review), THW Global has just over 140,000 registered members. Almost every other second a new member is being registered. That is really something to WOW about…
Anyway, my story of how I came to know about THW Global would probably be similar to most of you reading this. Normally I don’t have the tendency to open any spam emails. Almost all the time, I would immediately click the trash button even without looking. That was exactly what I did with the first two emails I received from THW Global.
It didn’t stop there. They spammed with a couple more emails over the past few days, which made me curious to open and check it out. Frankly speaking, the headlines “earn up to $25 per hour watching better than YouTube type videos” really caught my attention.
Apart from that, I noticed a ton of people actually promoting this program on social media.
The reason why everyone is promoting the program is simply for the reward. THW Global claimed that they will pay you $5 for every person who earns up to $25 an hour that is personally recommended by you.
Of course, the claims made are very ridiculous, I’m not buying into any of those right away. So I decided to dig a little deeper to find out more about the program. I was quite amazed by what I actually found. I will explain in more details later on.
What Is THW Global all about?
THW Global seem to be an advertising website that claims to pay up to $25 per hour for watching so kind of videos. From what they mention on their site, it seems that you will also be required to give comments on commercials, TV pilot programs, movie trailers, video surveys and much more.
Besides that, something they mentioned about themselves really bothered me…
” It’s YouTube in reverse. At YouTube, they pay out mega millions to people who get high traffic of people coming to their posting. THW Global does just the opposite by paying millions to the viewers who watch content not place content.”
Now comes the questions. Where is THW Global getting the money from? How are they able to pay such a big amount of money for simple tasks? How does it benefit them?
If THW Global is really an advertising company, advertisers might pay THW Global to help them get the job done. That’s fine… But I still don’t understand how would anyone pay crazy amounts of money for watching trailers or video surveys.
I have participated in small tasks such as watching videos/trailers or taking surveys in the past. None of them, have ever come close to what THW Global is claiming. Most of them I did paid me almost only pennies. The company will probably go bankrupt if it did pay $25/hour in my opinion.
Let’s just talk practical here for a second. As of now, there are already 140,000 registered members. Assume that these 140,000 people watched videos for one hour at the rate of $25/hour. It adds up to a whopping $3.5 million. And this doesn’t end there.
If more people join(I reckon at least another 30,000 people to join in the next few days) and spend more than 1 hour doing this, it can add easily add up to billions. Seriously, what company is this? Money printing company? They are making earning money look easy, which is obviously not…
Apart from all these nonsense, they actually made me laugh for a second. They make this opportunity look as if like a full-time job for everyone by mentioning the minimum requirements. ” Must be 21 or older with an HS Diploma”. I did register with them to see what is inside. But as far as I know, they didn’t ask me for any educational background information or my age but I was able to register.
So… what does that tell? It tells us that they the min age requirement or education qualification is all bullshit. They just say that to make it look legit. But too bad, they couldn’t lie well. Honestly, just by paying attention to small details like these you can easily tell that Global THW is up to something no good.
The Man Behind THW Global…
Some of you might be wondering, who is the person behind this “advertising company”.
Though this piece of information wasn’t mentioned anywhere on the site, I managed to find it when I dug deeper. The person behind this website is Sherm Mason. The majority of you wouldn’t have heard about him before. As for myself, I am quite familiar with this name because I have taken part in some of his previous antics.
Who is Sherm Mason?
To sum up about him…he has owned several MLM type business schemes that all, in the end, turn out to be scams.
These are some of the previous sites ran by Sherm Mason
- Magnetic Builder
- Magnetic Gratitude
- Summer Fun
- Paradise Payments
One of his most recent scams is the 3×9 millionaire machine. Seems like our dear friend here has kept himself busy by adding a new project to his CV.
Just see for yourself what others have to say about Sherm Mason and THW Global…
So is THW Global A Scam?
I bet all of you are eager to know whether it THW Global a scam. Well, I am not in the position to answer that right now because they are still in the pre-launch phase. Obviously, we will have to see how it goes over the next couple of weeks before any conclusion is made.
As mentioned before, I have registered an account with them too. I am quite curious to see whether it really lives up to all the hype. Well, we have to wait for another couple of weeks for judgements day. For now, I will keep it on hold.
I will be updating the review accordingly to newer findings and updates over the next couple of weeks or months. To my haters(if any), don’t get me wrong. I am not here to tarnish anyone’s program or product. Honestly, I would be happy if the company really lives up to their claims.
Seriously, who doesn’t want to make $25 per hour watching videos? Definitely not me!
Updates(As of 11th July 2016)
Update 1: Alright guys, just wanted to do a quick update on the situation. I believe all of you would have already known that THWGlobal is officially launched today(4th July). I login to the site to see what’s in stored for me, but was left disappointed.
Basically, they had a demographic survey for me to do. They mentioned that this survey will be the one that will bring in the opportunities for me going forward. I have already completed the survey and will probably pop in over to THWGlobal a couple of times over the day to see if there is any opportunity waiting for me.
I will get back to you here once I found anything.
Update 2: Well, it’s been about a week since THWGlobal was officially launched. Till now, there isn’t any opportunity for anyone to watch a “better than YouTube video” and get paid.
It seems more like this website takes our personal information and sell it to market research companies. At the moment this is the only thing I could think off and I believe some of you are agreeing with me on this. What I don’t understand now is that they still are looking for over 4 million people to register to THWGlobal.
What’s the reason for that?
I’m not too sure…
Let see how things goes in the coming days…
My Final Thoughts
Judging by the unrealistic claims and the history of the owner behind THW Global, who is a scam artist, this so-called billion dollar advertising company seems to be a scam. But as I said earlier, I am not going to jump to conclusions just yet.
So, we will see how it goes…
Final Verdict: Pending but Not Recommended
Safe & Solid Way To Make Money Online?
For those of you who are still keen in generating good income online, I highly recommend that you start your own online business. This is a really safe and solid opportunity because you don’t depend on anybody but yourself. You don’t have to worry about getting scammed.
So… what do I mean by online business?
There are many ways of running your very own online business. Selling your own products or running an e-commerce store are a few I can list from the top of my head. But the one that I have personally tried and am talking about is called Affiliate Marketing.
Affiliate Marketing means promoting someone else’s products/services and earn commissions from it. There are countless of benefits for this approach which is the reason why I really love it.
Some of them include…
- You don’t need a huge capital to start
- Can be done from the comfort of your own home
- No need to physically get in contact with anyone. Everything is done through the internet.
- You don’t have to worry about what products to sell or storage space to put your products
- Definitely has more potential to make money compared to revenue sharing sites
It’s really not difficult to get started. All you need is an interest or passion. If you have one, you can build a business around it. I have been doing this for just over a year and have seen more than just great success with it. This opportunity has allowed me to quit my day job and run this entirely from home and the best part…? My income is almost 3 times of what I earned in the corporate world.
Though it is nice to hear… I have to tell you that this didn’t happen overnight. I have put in a great amount of effort to make this work. If you are expecting to make tons of money within a week or month, sorry, this isn’t something for you. You have to put in the effort and give yourself enough time to see success in this.
I know some of you might be thinking right now, how do I get started without any proper understanding or knowledge about Affiliate Marketing & starting an online business. Don’t worry, I have got you covered. I have been using this program called Wealthy Affiliate. It’s an online training platform that teaches you from scratch to building an affiliate marketing business.

Alright, I have come to the end of my review on THW Global. I do hope by now you have a better understanding of what it is all about and whether it is something you want to take part in.
