This is a discussion of My-Internet-Payday which appears to be the same product as Joel Comm’s MyGooglePayday discussed here already.
2/05/2010 update: I thought it would be important to point out how quickly InfoMedia fixed issues people complained about here. Also, it is important to realize that a totally DIFFERENT company – having nothing to do with Joel Comm’s company started a different offer they ALSO called “My Internet Payday”.
Also, InfoMedia quickly got their BBB rating back to an A+ rating after it had dropped down to a B- rating. You can see that here:
6/1/2009 update: My-Internet-Payday has a message stating “My Internet Payday is Not Accepting New Members at this Time. Please check back in the future for openings.”
I also noticed that a lot of the fake blog owners pulled My-Internet-Payday from their promotions well before My-Internet-Payday posted that message. That could be because they knew the offer was going to expire, it could be because InfoMedia specifically disallowed that form of promotion, or it could be for some totally different reason.
5/25/2009 update: This whole discussion of My-Internet-Payday seems to have turned into a discussion of how to cancel the course. If that’s what you’re looking for, there is plenty of information throughout the discussion on that and the direct link to their support desk that covers that is here:
Also note that when I say “improvements” it does NOT mean that’s how I would like to see the order process in an ideal situation and it’s my opinion based on past versions of the order process I’ve seen. But what you and I think individually doesn’t mean anything as I try to explain in my 5/19/2009 post which I got a lot of flack for. Along with my 5/24/2009 reply to Annelie. Keep in mind that is a layperson’s interpretation of only a partial piece of the FTCs material on clear and conspicuous disclosure – the experts in those matters are the Attorneys for the company’s in question and the FTC attorneys.
The difficult part of that as Not Kevin (in my opinion one of the more substantive contributors to this aspect of the discussion) has pointed out is that there seem to sometimes be multiple forms of the order process going on simultaneously – I don’t know if that’s a temporary situation or not.
Hopefully eventually this discussion will get back on track at some point and allow people to give their feedback about the actual product, although I certainly do understand that what’s been going on has value as well.
5/14/2009 update: Hackersafe logo issue has been fixed.
5/12/2009 important update: Enough has gone on here that I feel it’s important to point out that My-Internet-Payday never made it into the recommended products list at WorkAtHomeTruth or the top 10 recommended home businesses list. I had planned to move into a full review of the product, but because of the feedback I’ve received about customer service for the product here I’ve decided to put that on hold.
4/27/2009 update: Even MORE improvements to the order process! The current disclosure on My-Internet-Payday site is now placed directly at the point of the order form which is good news. For some reason the HackerSafe logo snuck back on the page, but that was just probably an oversight that will be fixed soon.
4/17/2009 update: The My-Internet-Payday sales process has gone through a major overhaul and has implemented the following changes:
- The Hackersafe logo issues has been fixed.
- The text next to the asterisk now states: “This is a $1 Trial. After trial expires additional monthly fees apply see terms and conditions.” (Note, you can find the terms and conditions at the bottom of the second page – the page on which you enter your payment details).
3/24/2009 update: BBB logo issue has been fixed
Again, it’s a $1.00 trial offer which automatically converts into a $78.64/monthly fee at the end of the trial period in order to retain access to the membership. The cancelation procedures are spelled out in the Terms and Conditions found by clicking the Terms and Conditions link which tells you to:
“CAREFULLY READ AND AGREE TO THE TERMS BELOW BEFORE ORDERING:”
And then goes into the details on how the trial offer works.
Joel Comm has made significant contributions to the field of Adsense Education which is easy to see from the vast number of legitimate testimonials he has for his product The Adsense Code here. Those are REAL people giving REAL testimonials. And people like Alice Seba who is giving her testimonial there don’t just hand out testimonials willy-nilly.
I still have some qualms which I feel obligated to point out since I am constantly telling the visitors to WorkAtHomeTruth to look for these kind of issues on sites, so I’d be remiss not to mention them.
I still am wondering why the HackerSafe logo is being used as I discussed in the write-up of the sales page for MyGooglePayday here.
3/24/2009 UPDATE: The issue with the BBB logo discussed in the following paragraphs been fixed and has been made clickable now.
3/24/2009 Start of original BBB information follows…(The following discussion of the BBB logo is no longer relevant but left in place for historical purposes).
I also don’t understand why My-Internet-Payday.com doesn’t have a live link from their BBB logo to their BBB confirmation page since the BBB Seal Program’s outline in Wyoming and Northern Colorado tells consumers:
“You know a company is authorized to display either seal if it links to a BBB confirmation page. Always click on a BBB seal to confirm the company’s good standing with BBB.”
3/24/2009 End of the original BBB discussion (no longer relevant but left in place for historical purposes).
The bottom line is that based on my experience with some of Joel Comm’s previous information, it’s probably very good educational material, but I have NOT specifically reviewed the My-Internet-Payday course – which apparently is also known as MyGooglePayday.
As mentioned in the discussion of MyGooglePayday, you may want to pick up a copy of The Adsense Code BOOK first – although certain a 7-day trial should be sufficient time for you to decide if the My-Internet-Payday product is right for you.
Note: I should point out that Joel Comm has stated back on 2/27/2009 in the MyGooglePayday comments section here in that “We recently learned that Hackersafe is no longer active and are switching to McAfee as soon as we can get it running.” So I would assume we’ll see that switchover pretty soon, although I still don’t 100% understand that statement, because I thought that the “switchover” was done automatically for Hackersafe users, but it’s possible I’m wrong about that.
Here are some the sites (NOTE: These people’s Adsense Revenue sites may be DIFFERENT) of the people giving the testimonials so you can confirm these are REAL people with established, professional sites:
- InternetMarketingSweetie.com is Alice Seba’s site.
- Lockergnome.com is Chris Pirillo’s site
- Barbara Feldman – Surfing the Net With Kids at SurfNetKids.com
- SurefireWealth.com is Jeremy Gislason’s site
- TheMarketingMD.com is Dr. Mike Woo-Ming’s site.
- TheInternetTourbus.com is a site co-run by Bob Rankin
Of course there are many more testimonials, but those are some of the better known authors and sites.
As always, any and all feedback is welcome.
