TrafficX was a tough review to write. Anthony Mancuso and Paul Nicholls have numerous programs on Warrior + Plus.

Naturally, I started this review, giving them the benefit of the doubt. I hope these guys have developed a product that can help us all generate leads.

I listened to the video and purchased their product for $12 so I can give you an honest review.

I will be covering;

  1. What I found in the first video.
  2. What information I received from the training videos.
  3. All of the upsells.
  4. My recommendations. 
  5. Red flags.
  6. How I find information and make money online.

TrafficX

Program name: TrafficX

Founder: Anthony Mancuso and Paul Nicholls

Website: https://trafficx.net/frontend

Price: $12.93 with upsells to $685

Recommended: I’m going to go out on a limb here and say YES this is a scam and NO I do not recommend this program.

I have written about a couple of other scams that may be of interest to you also.

What I found in the first  videos

 The video begins with Anthony speaking. He talks about the usual promotional things. He states that he and Paul cracked the code to getting traffic that works and converts because they are so good. 

He says you pay too much for one or two traffic methods and he will give you ten methods for a much better price. 

With his product, they have put together ten traffic method training videos that will only take three steps.

  1. Choose from one of the ten
  2. Follow training inside
  3. Explode your list and make sales

He says his top ten lead generation ideas are timeless and battle tested. The training comes with everything you need to get traffic. 

He did state that you do not do any work to make money. 

Right before he said that I started thinking how nice it would be to do nothing and make money, then I remembered that does not happen. 

I thought maybe TrafficX is a legit program until all of the Red Flags started popping up.

reasons why to get rafficx

Here you have the reasons why you need TrafficX now. 

  • The videos are not step-by-step. They tell you what the method is but do not teach how to do it. 
  • It is not 100% newbie friendly. I am an affiliate marketer, and there were a couple that I couldn’t figure out with the training provided. 
  • They do have two Free, methods. 
  • Most of the traffic methods they offer will cost money to implement.

What information I received from the training videos

Anthony and Paul present ten video training sessions. The first one is an introductory video.

Video #2-Solo ads-he talks about buying emails and how to find people you can trust to purchase solo ads. Then he goes on to talk about the results we can expect to see from solo ads.

It is useful information, but it offers me nothing on how to do this method except a good definition of what a solo ad is. 

Video#3-Anthony speaks of the one dollar offer traffic method. The video is 33 minutes long. He appears to be word stuffing, very hesitant and repeats the same thing over and over again.

He tells us to use this $1 method with old content for $1. He advises not to release new content for only $1.

Video #4-push notifications-he uses this term a lot, but he never told us what a push notification is. 

A push notification is like a text message but different. It appears on the lock screen of your phone, and you can opt in or out of the messages.

Video #5-facebook traffic- This is the free traffic method he said he would give us. Facebook has changed its algorithm, so this is no longer valuable information. He talks about how to use Facebook groups to promote your product and get leads.

Video #6-youtube with a twist. He talks about this method but he does not teach you how to piggyback on someone else channels with your URL. He says to choose the channels of people who do not know how to monetize their site and offer them $25 to put your link on their channels.

I believe this is a significant lack of integrity.

Video #7-parasites to drive traffic to your site. The parasite process is just wrong.

He suggests making a fake blog site. Choose a domain for a website, put one or two posts that you pay someone to write. Use this blog website URL and leave it in the comments of an authority website blog to drive leads to your site with an opt-in form.

Leaving links in comments is an acceptable practice, but only if you have valuable content to present to your readers. 

Video #8-warrior form-I found TrafficX on Warrior + Plus. I believe he is suggesting you go to the affiliate sites, find someone else’s product, and promote it for a small fee like $.95-$7.00 to get leads. You make the product look like your own to generate leads.

Video #9-Youtube again. They are teaching you how to rank in google search engines with your youtube channel.

I can look up any of this on google and learn all I need to know. They are offering me nothing that I can get for free.

Video #10-Reddit traffic hack. They say this is the best free traffic method. I didn’t learn anything on this one.

None of this has been free. If I followed TrafficX 10 traffic methods I would pay for the ten pages, solo ads, dollar traffic, push notifications, YouTube links products I found on Warrior + Plus form., freelance writer, domain name and web hosting.

All of the upsells

The original price that I paid is $12.95, and of course, immediately you receive all of the upsells before you can access the information promised to you. 

With this original price, I received poorly instigated videos that did not explain anything well. 

First upsell-$47

You receive an easy to use template that makes it easy to build a fast cash campaign

Second, upsell $197

Only 50 people can join this one because they are allowed to siphon traffic directly off of the boss.
 

Third upsell $397

You become a super affiliate and make $500-$1000 a day. 

Fifth upsell $97

You pay for rights to the program and you can sell it or share it. 

I did not purchase any upsells. I believe if you are going to offer me a product and tell me I get step-by-step training, I should not have to pay more money when I make my first payment. RED FLAG # 982.

My recommendations 

Thumbs Down

I do not recommend TrafficX. I thought long and hard to determine if I would call this program a scam. I have decided it is a SCAM.

There are many red flags. These red flags tell me it would be in your best interests to stay far away from TrafficX.

Red Flags

  1. Indicated you would make $1194 in 24 hours.
  2. A promise to deliver step-by-step training with the videos, but no follow through. 
  3. Make $500-$1000 a day as a super affiliate.
  4. Pressure sales: The upsells are the only way to make real money.
  5. Everything he says is “RIGHT NOW!” You have to act now, or the offer will disappear.
  6. There is very little information about how you will make this much money.
  7. Repeated statements that the product is worth hundreds and thousands, but you can get a discount.
  8. Claim that it is 100% newbie friendly when it is not.

In my opinion, a scam is one who takes money for a product and does not deliver. Sometimes a program will have useful information, but I don’t believe TraffiX is a good program. 

You will need a website and a YouTube channel, but they do not tell you how you will accomplish this task.

In this case, all of the information I received on the videos I can find free when I search google. The videos were not step-by-step and poorly presented. I could not go out and use any of the information given to me without paying more to upgrade. And I don’t know if the upsells would solve this problem.

How I find information and make money online

I am an Affiliate Marketer and learned all I know on the Wealthy Affiliate platform.

You will eventually need to have leads and collect emails. There are numerous ways to accomplish this task, but TrafficX does not offer a workable solution.

Collecting emails is an advanced step after you build your business to get recognized on Google. But first you need a website and here is where you can learn all you need to know.

8 thoughts on “TrafficX-Is It A Scam?”

  1. Thank you for your review on TrafficX. Anthony and Paul really focus on the get rich quick scheme. I really do wish that I can make $3,000 in a one day work week not only that will cover my rent, I can just work 1 day a week. However, we all know that it is too good to be true. 

    It is ridiculous that you have to pay $12 just to see another upset and get the useless information that you can find it on google. Did you manage to get your money back? I really hope you get your money back. 

    I am also a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I have to say that the training material is very useful and beginners friendly. I guess whoever is reading this is just going to have to give it a try themselves and take it from there.

    • Hey there, The $12 is nothing if I can help someone else keep their hard earned money. It is worth it to me if I can get the information I need to determine what type of program TrafficX is. 

      Yes, Wa is the absolute best and I also encourage all to take a look. There is nothing to lose to look and everything to gain. 

  2. Thanks for a great review… I’ve been hearing about TrafficX and was wondering if it’s legitimate or not so I really appreciate this. And even more so given the fact that you actually purchased the initial $12 part of the offer and then took the time to go through the upsells properly. Given what you’ve discovered there I agree with you 100% on the scam verdict. Guess it’s the old if it seems to good to be true adage once again! Thanks so much again for taking the time to check this out and for sharing it. 

    • Judy, You are so welcome. I always want to claim the truth as I see it. To purchase it was the only way I can give a full review of this product. I am so happy you found it helpful for you and will stay clear of it.

  3. Hello Laura, 

    Thanks for your insights on Traffic X.  

    As you outline clearly, if they are advertising making money without doing any work, then that itself is a “red flag”.  

    I don’t think that anybody who tries affiliate marketing expects to make money without doing any work.  To the contrary, the understanding is that there will be a lot of hard work, but the trade-offs (working your own hours, not having to report to anybody but yourself, etc.) are what make the hard work worthwhile.  

    The second thing that caught my attention was them asking you to create a fake blog.  This is the total opposite of what they teach us at WA which is to find a niche that you are passionate about, and to proceed in building content with the intention of helping others.  The only reason that somebody would ask you to “fake” anything in my opinion is that they have ulterior motives.  

    Will stir away from Traffic X for sure.  

    Best regards. 

    • There are many people who believe they can do nothing and make money. this is why scams are developed. And this is why I write these reviews to report scams and help people keep their hard earned money. 

      It is best is all steer clear of TrafficX. They make it look so good but with now return or value.

  4. Thanks for throwing away the $13 on a scammy product so we can all learn it’s a scammy product!  Hee.  I think my first real red flag was them promising money without working for it.  I probably wouldn’t have even invested $13 in this program after THAT remark.  We all know anything takes some work.  Even winning the lottery, you got to purchase a ticket or more, often weekly for years.  

    In any case, the upsells you tell us that appear after your first payment would also be a huge turn off for me.  Thanks for the information!  I’ll definitely pass on this one!

    • I agree that after the first large red flag I was sure it was a scam but I want to be accurate. $12 was a small price to pay to assure I was honest with my readers.
