Adhitprofits Revshare Case Study Conclusion

Ok, it has now been exactly one full month since I started this case study on the Adhitprofits program (and other revenue sharing PTA programs at the same time), so I feel confident in drawing my conclusions at this point.

SHINY OBJECT SYNDROME

Due to the enormous initial success of AHP lots of copycat sites started (literally 1-3 per day!), but they were run by scammers or inexperienced admins and ran into problems quickly, including one that stalled within 5 minutes of launch (Adhitsrev…AVOID!!). However, because of greed to make more with all the clones, AHP members began withdrawing their funds from AHP to put into the shiny new ones and that started it’s decline, as the resulting slowdown of earnings fed even further fear to not repurchase at AHP and so the downward trend continued in this cycle.

When program earnings started to slow down (as they eventually all do), I noticed the “cheerleaders” in the MMG forums parrot that 1% or less daily is still better than what you’d get at a bank, but realistically, unless you live in a volatile country, your bank will still be there holding your money safely a year later, whereas most website schemes have a 2-6 month shelf life, if it even gets past the first week. You don’t see many last beyond a year, so you really need to use a “get in and get out” profit plan, which I admit does contribute toward a faster program decline, but it’s YOUR money you need to be concerned about…not everyone else’s. Even the cheers have gone quiet in the forums lately because they have finally realized it’s over.

Yes, I’m fully aware that, in theory, AHP would grow and thrive if everyone stuck with it as a team, but that simply doesn’t happen in reality. The reality is that people get bored and move on to the next big thing and others jump ship when they see less earnings than the day before. It’s just like a typical referral. Yes, they WILL increase your earnings, but only if they’re active. Having a non-active referral is the same as having none at all, so if everyone doesn’t work together, then the program dies. Simple, really. I recommend not joining ANY program if you don’t plan to work it to your own benefit, although it may be too late to save this one.

ANYONE HAVE A LIFE RAFT??

In an effort to boost the program the admin implemented a new feature yesterday where you click a treasure chest icon to view a site and maybe win a 4 cent “prize”. Oh boy!! This is beginning to feel more like a PTC every day. Truth is I hate PTC sites and gave up that crap years ago where you click your fingers sore for pennies per day, but that’s where this has headed. Originally Adhitprofits was a great concept where you bought effective advertising (banners, PPC text ads) and also received a cut of the ad profits to earn while advertising, but the earning has been reduced to pennies per day AND you still have to click 10 ads a day just to get that, so now it’s just a PTC where the ad share cost is like a membership fee. No thanks. I personally I hate the surf requirement. Yuck.

The admin, Charles Scoville, will adapt and survive, while the members are stuck with ad shares that have no hope of expiring. Fans were applauding him, but a simple investigation shows that he has started programs before that die after 2-3 months and then he simply restarts with another one. His revshare before Adhitprofits was called “Banrev” and it stalled the very month before AHP was launched which leads me to conclude that he was already planning AHP as he watched the Banrev well dry up.

The right thing to do would be to offer the option to those who want to withdraw the money they have tired up in it to be able to take their remaining funds and leave, if they want to. Some people will still want to stay on a sinking ship, in case a miracle happens, but at least give people the option to decide for themselves. The admin made his profit, as did many others, so give the losers a little dignity to at least get what they can out of it without the minimum withdraw limit in place. Even Charles, in his last couple of newsletters has been pushing AHP as an advertising platform now instead of a revenure sharing program. It is now something different than when it started.

In fairness, I don’t actually think it’s the admin’s fault it’s dying, as all the other revshare programs are meeting, or have met, the same fate. There’s just not enough dollars to go around and people jump from one bandwagon to another and that’s just the reality of these money games. My own suggestion to keep the program alive is to lower the share cost from $45 to maybe $15 or $20, at the most, as the lower entry level would allow more people to participate, which would, in turn, bring in even more members through their referrals. Programs like Revadsnetwork (payment proof here) are still doing well at only $2.50 per ad pack because far more people can afford to join and they offer good advertising value as well.

AND FINALLY…

I was one of the lucky ones who just about broke even. I wasn’t in early enough to make a profit before everything went south, but I put in $180 and withdrew $105.09, so I technically lost about 75 bucks, although some of my banner ads there made some residual sales that brought me closer to the BEP and I’m waiting on my last $10 withdrawal now, so overall I’m ok with it. It may rebound but right now I cant recommend it, as there are better places to spend your money wisely. I’ll write an updated post if things change.

Revshare players will hate me for saying this, but your best bet is to be a “hit and run” participant where you get in on day one, make your profit, and then get out. Yes, I know it’s bad for everyone else, but these kinds of programs simply never last long enough for you to be a long term participant. It’s just not sustainable in reality, no matter how much they cheer that it is, and the members using a HAR strategy (and ref hounds) are the only ones I see making big money. The little player is left losing money so the big ones can gain from their loss. Name me ONE online program that has lasted over a year AND is still paying out at 2%+ daily and I’ll consider long term stability, but I haven’t seen any yet.

So, my conclusion is that, as before, I still hate joining programs, but I wanted to try putting together this experiment just to see if I was somehow missing something by not joining them. However, I still prefer putting my money into my own website offering a product or service for a higher return, but that involves work and effort, which many people don’t seem willing to do, as they prefer looking for an “easy” way to earn online. These revshare sites are good for those people. If you would prefer working someone else’s program to make the admin and big players rich, instead of creating your own, and want the easiest return on your money, then this is perfect for you, but get in early before the well dries up.

My next case study will be on HYIP sites. Oh joy…

Learn. Adapt. Survive.

AdHitProfits Payment Proof (Case Study Part 2)

Part 1 can be found here.

Ok, so 3 days have past since I first purchased my revshares at AdHitProfits.com and I’ve already made 2 withdrawals. The 1st was just a small one for $15.50 to make sure they paid, and the 2nd was for $40.17 and each withdrawal was instant, as they pay instantly via your choice of either Payza or SolidtrustPay.

In this Adhitprofits dashboard screenshot you can see the completed payment proof and I have extended the shot left so you can see the exact time to show that payout arrived just a few seconds after I clicked the “withdraw” button.

So far I haven’t had any issues in this program, except for a slow down of earnings on the weekend, as less people are online, but that’s true of any member based site, including my own. I’m actually looking forward to the week ahead!

I’ve also noticed that many members suggest an 80/20 ratio, by repurchasing new shares with 80% of your earnings and withdrawing the remaining 20%. This allows your account to grow with more shares, so you earn more money, while still getting back a percentage to pay yourself. It does work well that way, so I reccommend doing the same.

Lastly, I wanted to mention that other new ad revenue sharing programs have quickly sprung up following the huge success of AHP, but none of them seem to have the same stability, as the others are disorganized and don’t seem to be prepared for any long term sustainability. The most popular among them is UTSprofitads, which I did join and will post about later, but they are in prelaunch until July 30th, so they are still making adjustments to their revshare plan.

For me it’s important to point out here that I’m not a “fanboy’ of any particular program of any kind and I’m all about what works and earns money, so none of my posts are of the biased fake “review” style you see for everything online just to get referrals. In fact, unlike other things you might join, referrals are NOT an important part of these revenue sharing PTA (Paid To Advertise) websites. These are not PTC sites where you need refs or a huge downline to earn any decent amount. Here, you earn the most based on YOUR shares, not what others bring in under you. With that being the case, I will tell you EXACTLY what I think of something, good or bad. I’m not one to hype or sugarcoat anything.

So far, so good. I will post part 3 after I’ve been in it at least a couple of weeks.

Adhitprofits

EARNING DISCLAIMER:: Funds rendered with AdHitProfits is in no way an investment. Funds rendered are for the purchase of ad sales and marketing. Dollar amounts will vary based on total ad sales every 30 minutes. This does not imply similar results..

Like anything online, you must be proactive to achieve results. Simply joining a site and doing nothing will earn you nothing. Remember that you get out of life what you put into it!

Enjoy the start of summer!

Adhitprofits Review Case Study Part 1

Ok, I’ve decided to try something totally different and write a series of posts as reviews of various programs. For the record, I HATE MMO programs and always have, as 99% of them are scammy, crappy and a waste of time. I’ve written plenty of posts here and on various forums about how much I dislike ANYTHING with a downline where you are essentially working to bring in signups to someone else’s website instead of your own.

However, since I am already financially comfortable with what I am doing online now running my own network of sites, and I’m always looking to add additional revenue streams, I thought it might be fun to take another look at what programs are out there and try to sift through the crap to find the one golden egg that might be worth promoting.

adhitprofits

After MUCH research (and sorting out the hype), there was 1 opportunity that everyone seems to agree is “the best MMO program of 2013”. It’s called ADHITPROFITS and it’s basically a revenue sharing advertising business. You buy advertising there (mostly banners) in the form of “shares” and that entitles you to share in a cut of ALL the profits the site makes from all ads sold, at a 125% ROI. I found that interesting because I run an online ad business myself, so they are sort of like my competition and I wanted to see their structure from the inside.

So, I signed up there for free to have a look around. The 1st problem I ran into was that my Hotmail didn’t receive the confirmation email, so I couldn’t verify my email to join. I sent a ticket to support and they suggested using Gmail and gave me a code to access my account. Then I got into my account and went to change my email addy, but of course it sent a confirmation to verify my changes, which I didn’t receive…lol. The point here is that support responded to both of my tickets and sorted things out to my satisfaction, so that’s a good sign.

After logging in for the first time I noticed that they take security VERY seriously and require a 2nd password created AND a transaction PIN. I thought this was overkill at first, but maybe not. They plan to be around for a long time with their sustainable plan, so they want the structure to be solid, and I can appreciate that.

One of the things I like best so far is that you don’t have to refer anyone to make a good profit, but you DO have to buy at least 1 share to earn from the revshare opportunity. It costs $45 per share (which buys 1000 ad credits/clicks to your site) and that has it’s good and bad points. The bad is obviously that it’s a bit higher entry point that some other programs, but the good is that it allows for a MUCH higher return than others. There are many people who have earned 1000’s in profit already from owning JUST ONE SHARE within only a few weeks! That’s an awesome ROI!!

Since I just joined I don’t have any earning screenshots to show yet, but I plan to add payment proof in the next case study post. For now I’ll link to a huge thread full of excited earners showing off their earnings at the Money Maker Group here (btw, a “spike” is a sudden increase in your amount earned and it happens often throughout the day).

I purchased 4 shares to start and the only thing I found annoying was that you must view 10 ads every day to receive your cut of the revenue, which is added to your account every 30 minutes. After buying the shares the 1st thing I did was click the ads to get it over with and then noticed I earned 13 cents. “Oh great”, I thought, “It’s just another PTC!”, but that was actually just my revshare during the 2 minutes it took me to click the ads. During the 45 minutes it took me to write this much (including a bathroom break) I already made $3.00.

It’s not exactly fast riches, but it’s steady and consistant, so imagine 2 or 3 bucks made PER HOUR, every hour, throughout the day while you slept, went for a drive, went shopping, etc, without doing anything more than that 10 ad surfing that takes just a couple minutes per day. It’s FAR better than an actual PTC, where you would need 1000’s of referrals to earn that per day. With this one you don’t need anyone to join under you to make some good coin.

I will post more after a week or so in it to see how it progresses, but so far, so good. It certainly beats buying some crappy $67 MMO ebook that teaches you nothing. Check out Adhitprofits.com below and tell me what you think. All the best to you!

UPDATE: It has now been exactly 24 hours since I first started and I made a total of $22.43 for the day. Not a bad start!!
