Well, it seems I have déjà vu. I’ve reviewed a replica of this product a few months ago, which is called Clout Bucks. InfuEarn is in the same mould as Clout Bucks, and I’m going to show you what I know about this program.
So, is InfuEarn a scam, or can you really make good money with this program. From the outside, it all seems legitimate. So let’s take a closer look at the inside.
Tired of seeing Scams or endless fraud sites?
Product Name: InfluEarn
Product Type: Surveys. Tasks, Referrals
Price: Free to sign Up
Program Summary: In my opinion, I believe InfluEarn is the same program that has been rehashed under a different name. The reason they do this is because whoever is behind this program does not payout.
Would I Recommend It: No
What is InfluEarn
I seem to have seen this all before. This is where you need to be careful about the programs you sign up to. There are legitimate programs that will pay you for completing specific tasks, like InboxDollars, FusionCash or Amazon Mechanical Turk. However, somebody is behind a conglomerate of domains designed to just obtain your information.
InfluEarn is one of those, which has had various aliases because they keep getting exposed.
So, let’s look at what the site is supposed to be about.
When you sign up to InfluEarn, just like Clout Bucks, you’ll be presented with a neat looking members area. I’d like you to pay close attention to the warning that states, ‘When confirming payments, if our team finds any fake referrals/clicks, your account will be banned and your payment will not be approved’.
While this all sounds like a genuine warning of concern for them, it’s actually the way they get out of paying people. You don’t have to have done anything wrong, but InfluEarn will claim that fraudulent activity has been found on your account, and will not pay you.
Anyway, the InfluEarn members area looks like the above image, with sections down the side to complete various tasks. Each of these tasks will ‘apparently’ earn you some dollars.
Below, you can see that referring friends to InfluEarn will net you $10 for each referral. That’s a lot for just referring one person to InfluEarn. If you fill out a survey however, you’ll get a whopping $30, and even $50 for creating a YouTube video. How on earth are they going to pay that sort of money to you.
So what type of YouTube video are they suggesting you create? A promotional video of InfluEarn of course. They even give you a video Title and description, complete with tags to entice the right type of people. I really don’t like this because they are attempting to target teenage kids and the vulnerable.
How Does InfluEarn Work
So, what you’re going to find is that there are various tasks like I’ve indicated above, such as submitting videos to YouTube, referring friends and family to this same platform, leveraging other social platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. All in the name of getting more people to sign up to InfluEarn.
Why do they want more referrals? The main purpose is to gather your personal information to on-sell to other companies. However, that’s not they only intention behind this program. Each time you complete a survey or sign up to a different program, it’s possible the creators of InfluEarn will earn commissions of their own, with you doing all the hard work.
A prime example of one of their tasks that apparently earns you an outrageous amount, is the following. I took the ‘Sports streaming in HD’ task, which states that all I had to do was fill in my email address and choose a password, then confirm with a valid credit card to earn $100.
The link above is the path to where I’m taken with the sports streaming task. If you’re unfamiliar with affiliate links, this is what earns commissions when somebody signs up to purchase a product or service.
The above link code highlighted in red reads ‘clickid=’, followed by a long number with ‘pubid=’. This indicates an affiliate link id. So, the creators of InfluEarn will be earning commissions when you get directed to this sports site to sign up.
How Can InfluEarn Afford to Pay You
They can’t, is the short answer. There is no way that InfluEarn can make enough money to pay you $100 just for signing up to a HD streaming service. Commissions are usually paid on a percentage basis, which usually means a few cents here or a few dollars there, unless it’s a high ticket affiliate program. This amateur stream-player site will not be paying large commissions.
Other tasks such as referring others to join and adding promotional posts to social media sites are supposed to pay you $10, $2, $30, $20 or $50. But there’s no way they can possibly pay you this amount of money, without earning some sort or revenue from these tasks, which is just not the case.
In fact, let’s have a look at how old these sites are, because I have a feeling that they have recently popped up. Especially InfluEarn.
Who Are InfluEarn
As you can see in the image below, InfluEarn has only been around since June 2019, and I’m posting this article in August of 2019. As I indicated earlier, this is because they keep re-branding themselves when exposed.
Although I’ve reviewed them as Clout Bucks, they’ve also gone under multiple other names such as KidsEarnCash.com, Viral Bucks and Viral Dollars. They also went by the name SwagPay, and have even made a boo boo when rebranding themselves as InfluEarn.
If you take a look at their ‘Payment Proof’ page (which by the way are fake proofs), you’ll notice they forgot to change the name of their site from SwagPay to InfluEarn in a couple of places.
Talk about armature hour.
With proof that InfluEarn are constantly switching domain names and the look of their external sites, while internally they are similar and serve the same purpose. Claims of large payments for each individual tasks are what get’s people to sign up.
However, there have been lots of disgruntled customers that have not received payment. The reason given as I alluded to at the beginning of this article, that your referrals/clicks have been fraudulent, and therefore your InfluEarn payments will not go through.
In my opinion, you’d be wasting your time by signing up with InfluEarn. You will end up using your precious time to get more personal information for these guys to store and on-sell.
You’ve obviously come here for an honest assessment of InfluEarn because you’re looking for an opportunity to make money online. If you were to put the same amount of time and effort into your own online blog, there’s a great chance you could earn great money. You can find out more about how I make money with my blog by reading on below, or check out my Beginners Step by Step Guide to Affiliate Marketing.
I’ll conclude by saying that task based websites, while some of them can make you a few dollars, are usually not worth your time. Sure, there are some legitimate sites like the ones I touched on earlier in this article, but even those will not make you large amounts of money.
I believe that if you have spare time on your hands to fill out surveys or complete tasks that will take you 1-2 hours on a computer, you’d be better of slowly building up a profitable online blog. The benefits of this are huge, because in time, the site can be making you money while you sleep.
If you had all day everyday free, maybe even opening your own drop shipping ecommerce store would be more beneficial. There’s a bit more involved with running an online store, but more profits can also be achieved.
This is just something to think about should you find yourself bored, and searching for a model to make money online.
