ClickMillions Review

A couple of weeks ago a did a post about a $329 click on a parked page that got a lot of attention. The story was inspired by a couple of screenshots sent to me by the creators of the ClickMillions educational platform. I told them that I would be happy to post this data, but that I never recommended a program unless I tried it myself. I made it clear in my post that I would give ClickMillions a thorough review, and I did, here is what I found.

Click Millions Review

The basic idea behind ClickMillions is an educational package that teaches people how to make money parking domain names. The concept hinges on the idea of finding expiring domains with backlinks that have lingering traffic. While this general concept is an interesting one, I found the program fell short in many areas and in some cases seemed very scammy and a bit misleading.

The first thing that really didn’t sit right with me was the front page of their site which says things like “What kind of money are we talking about?” and shows a parking account making $4,289.70 in 13 days. Or below that an image showing someone making $22,000 in 90 days. This is incredibly misleading since the course itself says that you can expect to make $20,000 in the first year. There seems to be a massive disconnect here and if someone were to look at the front page they would think that this represented what they could do with the program when that is really years away according to the program’s own videos.

Click Millions Revenue Claims

This brings me to the videos. I’ve taken a lot of online video courses, I think video is a great way to learn. These videos are some of the worst I’ve ever seen. There is a ton of ambient noise that is incredibly distracting, the person in the videos keeps swallowing really loudly which is also very unprofessional and also incredibly distracting. Last but not least, the videos don’t even show the current version of the platform and instead say that what you see might be different. In my mind this nullifies a lot of the value of the videos since what they show you in the videos is different from what you see which really makes the videos far less useful. Some of the videos have music in the background, others do not. Last but not least, there is a typo in the very first slide in the very first video which is just sloppy.

I’m not sure why I would trust a program that has a typo one minute into their very first video in their video series. If the goal of the program is to be a solid educational resource then they need to dramatically improve the quality of the videos. It would literally take a weekend to fix these and it blows my mind at how unprofessional these were.

However I knew that the key to this program was the software they created to help you identify these domains so I took a deep dive into this to. The software is ranks expired domains using letter grades between “A” and “D” with the goal of showing you domains with backlinks that may still have traffic. This would save you a lot of time, if it only worked. I quickly found out that the software is completely broken. Most of the domains marked with a letter grade of “A” show zero backlinks, since the “A” grade domains are supposed to have the best backlinks with the most traffic these zeros make no sense.

So I emailed the program creator and he told me that they did realize this was broken but that the zeros were sometimes wrong and users could go in an manually verify it. It doesn’t say this anywhere on their site or in their videos and if I was running an education program that hinges on software, and that software was blatantly broken, I would tell people. I told him that they should take the software down until it is fixed but he said they have over 2,000 customers, which I think honestly makes this even worse.

To sum it up, while I do believe that someone did get a $329 click on a parked page and this is pretty darn amazing, I cannot recommend the ClickMillions program. I find the homepage of ClickMillions to be very misleading, the videos unprofessional and the software not delivering as it should. I have sent all this feedback to the creators of the ClickMillions and they said they are taking this feedback very seriously. Now the question is, will they take action?

As I’ve said many times before, I only allow sponsors on my blog that make products and services I believe in, and anyone who send me information about a product or service that wants a free review, can expect for me to take a deep dive into what they are doing and share it with my users. I will continue to keep in touch with the ClickMillion people and if things change I’ll let you know but right now I do not recommend ClickMillions.

      @MarijuanaGuy – I’m not sure that it is a scam, but I can tell you that both the educational videos and the software are definitely not ready for primetime in my opinion.

    Apparently, Richard is just the sales guy. A guy named John Bonk is the individual behind this thing:

    From the http://www.wealthinvestors.com website:

    “John Bonk noticed in 2008 that as companies came and went, the traffic formerly being driven to their website had nowhere to go. With that in mind, John created an algorithm to figure out which of the 100,000 domains that expire daily were most valuable. From this idea, Catalyst was born.

    After developing his algorithm, John began reviewing expired domains, purchasing them and placing relevant ads on the sites. Within 12 months John had realized over 100% return on investment with many expired domains. He recognized the program could work for others, and he created ClickMillions.”

    The red flag to me from the start is the name of the company: Wealth Investors.

    Further research reveals that Wealth Investors LLC and John E. Bonk ran afoul of the Pennsylvania Securities Commission last year:

    Well now I could kick myself for getting involved in this program, I had a lady named Susan call me and she convinced me that the live training would be much better and it would take 3 courses to be up and running, and profiting even better be making money before the week is out. it would be 3 payments of 150.00 and the first 150.00 would get you started. Leaving me to believe I could do all 3 courses if I paid the first installment. After she takes my credit info. she then tells me that I would need to pay. 150.00 for each courses so it could not be done unless all was paid. I could not get the fist payment stopped. So I took part in the fist course, I was very frustrated with her quick overview of the first set of videos that was there training. I have viewed webnars that were free with more content and helpful information than I received in this course. The worst part this woman knew I was very short on money and struggled to come up with the 150.00 so I could get started with the 3 courses and start making money right away. I now have conformations from this blog post what a fool I am. I should have done better research.

    I finally got a hold of the lady I spoke too and she does not realize that I have already watched there 150.00 30 minute training That was a small overview of what I had already viewed on the video. I ask her what I needed to do to get my money back she says I need to watch this video and give it a try. I told her 30 minutes was not worth 150.00 and I wanted my money back she just keeps telling me to try the training. So I steel do not have a way to get my money back.

    Melcena,

    You must have the wrong program because if you watched 1 video you are not doing ours. We have 3 mentor classes that you can attend for the price you are discussing but since you have only paid a “PARTIAL” amount we do not allow you to attend “ALL” of them .

    Regarding getting your money back. You we’re probably made aware of the $1,000 guarantee we have and how to get your money back. If you need clarification please contact Susan to get it clraified.

    Now, Morgan is making his statements based off the “Book” and “Report Card”. Morgan did not go through any of the mentor classes or one on one training we offer. I know he’s a busy man and not sure if he got to truly “TEST/TRY” the program. I’ll let him clarify that.

    He is correct there are some typos in the videos and we plan on re shooting them to bring it up to date.

    That being said, we are not a scam and I feel Morgan should clarify that. Is our system perfect? NO. Do we like constructive feedback so we can figure out how to improve? Yes>

    However none of that makes us a scam or a bad business to be involved with.

    If you have questions please feel free to reach out to us. We will answer them with no problem and I’m sure Morgan can vouch for that as well.

    Thanks,

    Richard Saperstein

    @Richard – thanks for chiming in here! Definitely never said it is a scam and if you look at my first comment in this thread I said that I’m not sure if it is a scam because I do not know.

    What I can tell you is my experience with the program and my concerns around showing people making $4,289 in 13 days or $22,000 in 90 days when these sound like extreme outliers rather than realistic expectations.

    I can tell you that Richard has been very responsive to me in my emails and feedback.

    As always I will provide open and honest feedback on my blog and to any company that contacts me with an interest in a review of their program.

    Richard I watched the Videos and attended one mentoring program and I also paid 150.00 I was informed after paying that each mentor ship of 30 minute sessions would be 150.00. I was not told when I excepted that the mentor course was only 30 minutes long and would basically be a Quick Review of the first sections of the course. I have received far better courses for 47.00 with tuns more content. Do I feel ripped off? I say YES. Is this a scam you be the judge when I looked at the sites on my Report Card and through Go Daddy that I was already signed up with I was not personally impressed. Now do I want to put another 300.00 into this in order to get a refund? I personally can not afford too! I thought when I agreed to pay 150.00 I would get the mentoring it would speed up the process because I would know more and then I could make enough to pay the next months bill. Because I would put all my effort into it and it would work. I believe Susan knows I was pretty discussed when she told me I would have to pay the next day before I could get in on the next one. I am not impressed with your program at this point it is VERY over priced and it would be nice to get my money back without paying more. I know for a fact I have the correct program.

    As Morgan said, the Clickmillions homepage is very misleading. I took a chance on the program because Morgan is a person of high integrity. It appears that Clickmillions took advantage of Morgan’s audience. Don’t throw away $39.95 only to receive access to documents and videos containing elementary domaining information.

    Morgan I appreciated very much for sharing results of your research regarding ClickMillions. Actually I joined clickmillions first and second webinar for free and after that webinars I received from them the link of clickmillion kit. The ClickMillion kit discussed about the introduction of ClickMillions, Find domain names, Bid the Domain name from registrar such as AuctionGodaddy.com. And parking the domain name purchased. The ClickMillion kits is very interesting and I was really educated, I learned to qualify manually expired domain names before participating bidding using the 8 methods to qualify good expired domain names. However, what I cannot understand is about the advised of Susan (Assigned Advisor to me), she is always calling me to attend the webinar from the expert. I explained to Susan that I gained knowledge from the clickmillions kit but she still insisted for me to join the webinar from expert and then I will receive the REPORT CARD. I then asked the cost for joining the webinar and told me that the cost for joining is $450 but I can get it for $250 only, i told here its a big money, I want to start with ClickMillion with minimal expenses only but she still reiterated that I cannot have the Report Card which will save my time and money. I again explained to her that I want only to expose $30 to start the business and this amount will be used for my bid participation with Godaddy. She then offered to pay $30 per month and this amount will be paid uppront, I explained to her that I had already bad experience regarding automatic deduction to my account she then told me that she will not do the automatic deduction. She then explained that I can have it monthly contract and can renew it monthly for $30. Up to this moment we are still talking since I told her on last week (June 13, 2013) to study first the options. I hope this will to finalize evaluation regarding ClickMillions business operations.

    I am very disappointed with the Customer Service (Susan). I signed up to the program and to be honest I really wasn’t that impressed with the report card. But I wouldn’t say that it is a scam. I signed up and had automatic payments taken out so I had to wait one month before I received mentor services. When I received an email from Ashley about my 1st mentor session it said I could call the 1-800 # to set up the session. I did and never received a call back. I decided that I would just cancel the program. I called several times left my name and phone number and said I wanted someone to call me back. I never received a phone call. I got a hold of Richard on a forum and he took my name and phone number and passed that information on to (I assume Susan but not sure). Finally I got a hold of Susan on a different number than the 1-800 that was given in my email. I told her I wanted to cancel the program and that I left several messages and NEVER received a call back. She told me she didn’t receive (I guess) not only ANY of my calls but nothing from Richard either. I told her if you don’t want people calling you on the 1-800 # why say that you can call that number if you have any questions? Well she said my next payment was already taken out. I said you took a payment out early?? Who does that? I have automatic payments taken out for all my bills and no company takes a payment out early not even one day. I called my bank to find out if they could give me a time when that payment was taken out and they couldn’t. I was wondering if she took it out when I was on the phone with her. So now this has gone to the fraud department. Like I said I don’t think the program is a scam and Richard seems to be an honest guy but I think they should look into their employee Susan. She is either very unorganized or she is not an honest person. I wouldn’t want someone like that working for me. So I would not go with Automatic payments with this company because I would not trust Susan.

    @Quinn I hope that Richard responds to these posts. I really believe that the problem is with Susan. I think she is extremely unorganized and that is no way to run a business. If they tell you that you can call the 1-800 # if you have questions or problems than they should return your phone calls. I didn’t receive ANY mentoring sessions because my phone CALLS were not returned. I believe there were people that did receive their mentoring sessions so that’s why I believe Susan is an unorganized individual.

    My bank is looking into this because I paid for services that were not received. I have more paper work to fill out. I believe that mastercard looks into these types of disputes. I suggest that if this happened to you and you didn’t receive what was promised than file a dispute with your bank too.

Boy am I ever glad that I didn’t. Thank you so much for your honest opinion and thorough investigation and mostly, for saving me a lot of heartache.

    I was one of the unlucky ones that signed up and tried the clickmillions program. The first payment on my credit card was for $150 which allowed me access to some poor quality videos about domaining. I spoke to Susan and told her that I wasn’t happy and the videos only covered basic domaining tips which I knew 90% of the stuff, I’m talking very basic tips like “don’t look for high link count, look for quality links”. I spoke to Susan and told her I wanted a refund and she kept on giving me the run around about how the $150 is just the first series in the videos and I would have to pay an additional $150 to get access to more videos. For her to ask for another $150 to access “more videos” is just absurd. You would think for $150 you would get access to some quality videos with useful domaing tips.

    After asking Susan for a refund numerous times and getting the run around every time I contacted my credit card company and filed a dispute. My credit card company sent me some papers I needed to sign and state what happened and they said they would investigate the matter. To this day I still haven’t seen a penny from the $150. This is fraud pure and simple.

    By the way the guy behind ClickMillions.com is Richard Saperstein, he posts regulalry on NamePros.com under the name ‘smurge’.

    All these people claiming I’ve ripped them off or scammed them obviously forget everything I’ve ever told them or taught them…… If you are ever scammed, feel scammed, feel you didn’t get what you paid for,,,FILE A DISPUTE WITH YOUR C.C. or debit card carrier. You have legal protections in place and fraud protection.

    If you have any major debit card you have the exact same protections in place.

    Termination of Report Card Process
    Effective immediately, we will no longer be able to offer the Report Card as part of the ClickMillions program. Unfortunately many of the data sources that we have been using to compile results are no longer offering the data to the public and/or in a way that we can extract the information for our routines. In other words, it has now become impossible or cost-prohibitive to gather this information from our data sources. This is now occurring across most of the competitor platforms as well.

    We continue to believe strongly in the domain investing business and hope that you will still take advantage of our instructional videos for monetizing domain names. The principles of qualifying expired domain names still holds true regardless of the report card and continues to be a viable business for thousands of domain investors across the world.

    Thanks for being a valued customer with ClickMillions and we wish you continued success in the future.

    I want to make a comment about Richard Saperstein: he is right: you can earn money or at least you can buy domains with traffic. But: 1. I think to say all the time on the internet you make sooooo much money with parking is a bit strange and very onrealistic. 2. I have checked some domains of Richard and I hardly see backlinks so where does your traffic come from? 3. Then the clicks: nobody gets so many clicks.. Sometimes I see you got 300 visitors on a domain, and get so many clicks? 4. You claim on the internet you sell domains but there are many complaints about that since you ask people to contact you but you never answer! You just let people beg and send many messages, why? I dont say Richard is a con but I say he is acting weird!
