Hi, welcome to my Face Beast review. Is Face Beast a scam? Yes, in my opinion, it is. You may do too if you consider upsells to be scam-like behavior. Also, the testimonials are fake. So, once you knew that someone had deceived you by paying for video testimonials, would you trust anything they had to say about anything else after that? I certainly wouldn’t. Regardless of whether or not a method actually works, I don’t want to be involved with a deceitful liar.

The FaceBeast Sales Page
When I first arrived on the sales page, a video started playing automatically:
The dramatic music and the screenshots of earnings make it seem exciting. There are a few quick testimonials which I’m suspicious might be fake because they sound scripted. This is then followed by a sales pitch which sounds like it is probably recorded by an actor. It all sounds a bit too over-the-top and exaggerated.
They say you can earn money just from using Facebook.
Surely it can’t be that easy, can it?
They talk about how Facebook us a huge business, and how you can get a piece of that pie yourself. There is a flaw in this argument, though. Facebook is such big business because it makes so much money from companies that pay to advertise on it. How is using Facebook going to earn me some of that money?
Anyway, after more fake sounding testimonials from the same people, he then starts talking about all the things you could do with that extra money. You could catch up on your bills, take a vacation, or save up for college. Apparently these are all possibilities when you “put the beast to work for you”.
Scrolling down below the video, I see this dramatic headline:
I’ll be honest, I’m a bit sceptical. Aren’t you? $12,092 per month? That’s about $400 per day! Do you really think it’s possible to earn that much just from using Facebook? I don’t.
Anyway, further down the page, we have some more testimonial videos from the same people we heard from before.
She says the videos show you exactly what to do, all you need to do is copy it. Apparently it’s as simple as pointing and clicking. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it probably is.
I found bad use of English…
Further down the page, another dramatic headline caught my eye:
Okay, could they BE any more vague?!
Also, it’s a misuse of the word “literally”. This is really common these days, but it’s actually total nonsense. LITERALLY no end? I mean, LITERALLY??? Surely it’s not actually possible for there to be LITERALLY no end to the money you can make because there is a finite amount of money in circulation in the world.
That is LITERALLY the most stupid thing that anyone has ever written. Or is it?
So anyway, what does FaceBeast actually involve doing? How is the money actually made? Well, scrolling down further, I noticed something:
That is a screenshot of Clickbank earnings. In case you didn’t know, Clickbank is an online marketplace for digital information products. So, they handle the money side of things programs such as FaceBeast, and as an affiliate network to pay affiliates for referring new customers to these products.
But I’m telling you now, I’m pretty sure the only way you can earn that kind of money every day on Facebook is by using paid adverts. So I suspect the method involves paying for adverts on Facebook which link to Clickbank products. Maybe even selling Face Beast itself, so it just goes round in circles.
Of course, I could be wrong.
Edit: it turns out I was slightly wrong. I found out from another website that it involves creating Facebook fan pages.
The only problem is, there is not much more information available on this sales page, once you look past the hyped up sales language. In order to find out any more information, I have to enter my email address in the box at the bottom:
So I’m going to enter my email address and see what’s on the other side…
The 2nd Sales Page
After entering my email address, I was taken to a 2nd sales page. There’s not really any more information on this 2nd page. It’s just more sales talk to try and get you to join. There is mention of the 60-day money back guarantee, and they talk about a “bonus”: 1-on-1 consultation that they say is worth $495.
But wait…are there any upsells?
What are upsells?
An upsell is when you buy a product that you think is going to fulfill your requirements, and then you suddenly get hit by a “one time offer” for one or more additional products that will really help you get what you want better or quicker.
It’s a very common tactic with “make money online” products, but I think it’s wrong. It’s deceptive and causes people to spend significantly more money than they were originally led to believe they would be spending.
One thing you will often find on these kinds of sites if you go right down to the bottom, is a link that says “Affiliates” or something similar. This will lead you to a page that is intended to be seen only by people wanting to promote this product, not buy it.
FaceBeast does indeed have such an affiliate page, and there is information on there about the upsells.
The price of the main product is $97, but there are upsells costing an additional $197, making the total price $294! There is no information on that affiliates page about what the upsells actually are, but it is still clear that they really want you to pay $294, not $97.
You see, really, everything should be included in the main product for the first price. But doing it this way is a nasty tactic that squeezes extra money out of you once you have already committed to spending the first $97.
Digging a little deeper…
So I started looking into what other websites had to say about FaceBeast. I came across this thread on the Warrior Forum. Ignore the first post in the thread because it’s obviously just a sales letter trying to get you to sign up to it.
What caught my attention was the 2nd post in the thread.
Do you remember this testimonial guy on the FaceBeast sales video?
Well, guess what?
Here he is on Fiverr offering his services to record testimonial videos for you:
So my question to you is this:
If you found out someone had lied to you, would you trust anything else they had to say?
It’s also worth considering that if someone needs to pay money to get actors to record fake testimonials, it can’t be that good really, can it? It means they can’t find anyone genuine who can give a real testimonial.
So…is Face Beast a scam?
Each person tends to have their own definition of what a scam actually is. I think upsells tend to equal scams. Some people disagree with me saying that a scam means more than just having upsells. But I think it is a dishonest way of trying to squeeze extra money out of people.
Lying is another bad mark against them. Once you pay for fake testimonials, you lose all credibility as far as I’m concerned. So, all things considered,
So, all things considered, Upsells + Lies = Scam, in my opinion.
So…what’s a better option?
The best way to earn money is to build a website around a topic you are genuinely interested in, create loads of great quality content, then start to earn money by promoting other people’s products. It’s not rocket science. It doesn’t take a genius to do it.
In fact, I have already written two free guides about this:
