OK, I didn’t expect to be writing an update on my People Search money making opportunity so soon but I find it necessary because there appears to be some confusion.
What triggered it off was this comment left by Holly, who happens to be a very talented writer, and if you haven’t been over to her It’s All A Matter Of Perspective blog yet you should head on over there first chance you get. Her post Dog’s Cats And Slippery Cats’ is a real killer .
Anyway Holly left this comment.
Okay, I quit after the first confirmation. Now I have to create a free account at something called “Reunion.com”? And another confirmation? That raises all kinds of red flags for me – that’s where I quit.
When you decide to join the AcmePeopleSearch team you will be taken to a page that has the following three boxes on the top of the page. You can click on the image for a full size shot.
You will notice that there are three steps and that all three are ticked. This shows that I have completed all three of them and I therefore have access to the majority of the income streams. When you first see this page it will be devoid of ticks. As stated in their forum;
1. Step 1 – Build Your Search Engine. This first step is absolutely free and is FREE FOREVER for you to earn commissions. This is where you would affiliatize your APS Engine with the first five (5) of the income streams, namely Clickbank, HDP, MyLife, CJ, Adsense. You must signup as an affiliate of these programs (Note that MyLife is not accepting new affiliate signups). You must enter your affiliate IDs from those programs during the course of your Step 1 completion.
Upon completion of Step 1 and beginning at step 1, the people search engine that you built would have a Display Rate of 100%. This means that you will earn 100% of affiliate commissions from the first 5 income streams. As people search niche engine is huge getting 30% of all the searches done in the internet, you will be able to make a very good income by promoting your newly created Acme People Search (APS) Engine. However, the limitation is that you wouldn’t be able to promote it via Pay Per Click advertising until you brand or host it with your own web hosting (Step 2).
Now you will notice that the free version gives you access to five affiliate streams, Clickbank, HDP, MyLife, CJ and Adsense. Unless you join these affiliates you miss out on those income streams. The one that scared Holly off was MyLife, another aspect of people search and seeing as how people coming to your search engine can be considered targeted traffic, is more likely to convert earning you money.
When you get to step 2, that’s when it starts costing money, remember step 1 is free, and that $10 per month is simply the hosting fee needed to host your site. They use Global Domains which I find to be really cool and they have their own affiliate program. I completed step 2 because, just as it’s best to host your own WordPress blog, I know there would be many advantages to hosting your own people search engine.
Why did I complete step 3? Because I wanted to see the full potential and because they offered a 30 day free trial. The forum describes this step thus.
3. Step 3 – Unlock Residual Income. To make the most out of your APS business, you should unlock GDI, Hostgator, GVO and Referral Income Streams by subscribing either by Paypal or Trialpay. First 30 days is absolutely a free trial. When these income streams are unlock, you’ll be able to promote your APS business to your prospects or potential market. Note however that you should also be an affiliate of these programs and to enter your affiliate IDs in your back office (Add/Edit) in order to make money or residual income from them. When you have brought-in step-3 referrals to your APS business and they have clicked on GDI, Hostgator, GVO income streams’ link (where your affiliate links are integrated) and they have subscribed, you make money. When they have done the same and so by their referrals, you make more money, especially GDI and GVO which let you earn residual income with their tier or multi-level program. But Hostgator offers an awesome one-time huge commission potentially from your step 2 referrals only when they subscribed HG hosting.

The following image just shows my earnings so far. As you can see there are none from referrals but there is $125 sitting there and that was the money deposited by Tissa but which I won’t have access to until I get another $75, and he’s virtually promised me that within the month, and he’s even helping me along my adverting my engine on Google.
Honestly, so far I am impressed. It is early days yet and I will keep you updated. You may find this video interesting where he’s willing to prove to you that his system works. You may even find this link of interest, but I think I will leave it there for now as I don’t want to overload you with information.
