Welcome to my Zero Hour Work Days review. I saw this was being released so I thought I would take a look to see whether it’s a scam or legit…
Product: Zero Hour Work Days
Owner: Brendan Mace
Price: $8.95 + Extras = $1,009.95
What is Zero Hour Work Days?
Well, first up, there is this video from the sales page:
Okay, great, so he says he earns $10,000 per month with 15-20 minutes of work. Well, that’s not quite zero hours, is it? It’s 15 minutes, which is 0.25 hours. Okay, so I’m being pedantic, but how does he earn so much money from so little work?
Well, let’s take a look at one of the popup examples shown on his page:
This is a popup box that he will have on one of his websites which offer to show you how to earn money, and all you need to do is give your email address to learn how.
That’s a screenshot from within Aweber, the industry standard in autoresponder software.
So, what’s happening here?
So, the way he earns lots of money from so little work is he uses an autoresponder. This automatically sends emails to people who sign up to his list through one of those popups. He can then include links to products within those automatically sent emails.
But he says it takes him 15 to 20 minutes to MAINTAIN. That doesn’t mean it takes such little time to set up in the first place. I bet it does take considerably longer than that to really get this system set up.
What’s included in the course?
Here’s a screenshot of the list of modules:
It’s funny how it’s now a really specific number, $9,259.74 rather than $10,000. Anyway, I’m intrigued by the last item, “Where the REAL Money is”. I suspect that refers to the whole JV launch process, which includes getting other internet marketers to promote your products, and upselling people on expensive additional products. More about that below.
By the way, this is all seems very similar to a new product Brendan has released called Five Figure Freedom.
How much does Zero Hour Work Days cost?
The initial price of the product is just $8.95. That sounds great, right? To be shown how to make thousands of dollars per month so easily, only for $8.95. That’s amazing! As he said in the video above, he’s only charging less than 10 dollars for this. But this is a lie because he is going to try to upsell you on a bunch of additional products which cost more.
Take a look at this image illustrating the sales funnel:
What does this mean?
- After you have agreed to buy the main product for just $8.95, you will get presented with an offer to buy another product for $37.
- if you decline, the price is reduced to $17.
- Then you are offered another product for $67.
- If you turn this offer down, it gets reduced to $37.
- Finally, there is one last product offered to you for $897.
- If you decline that, it gets reduced to $197.
In total, if you were to buy all of this for full price, it would cost you $1,009.95 – more than 10 times the original price!
Why does he do this?
Because it works. It’s a very effective sales tactic. Once you have agreed to buy one product, you are in buying mode. Then it’s much easier to convince you to buy additional products for more money, especially if they can convince you that they will make the first product even more effective.
This kind of behaviour is so common in the internet marketing world, it’s not even funny anymore. They do it because it works, but that doesn’t make it right. It is a deceptive way to trick you out of spending more money. Surely, you don’t HAVE to buy the products, but the way they are presented makes it very difficult to turn them down.
And I strongly suspect this is how this guy manages to make so much money every month with such little work. He sells these products which promise to tell people how to make money, and he has these ridiculous upsell funnels which squeeze as much money out of people as possible.
Yeah, pay me $1,000 and I’ll show you how to make $10,000 by tricking 10 people into each paying you $1,000. See?
Who is the owner of Zero Hour Work Days?
Whenever I see a new product get released, I like to delve into who the owner is. This helps to give some kind of context to it all, so I can get a sense of how likely they are to be trusted.
Brendan has been a member of the Warrior Forum internet marketing community since 2010. He’s started 33 topics on there, and he is a screenshot showing some of them:
He also has a very good YouTube channel which contains a lot of helpful information about ways to make money online. Here is one video where he talks about how to make money without spending any money:
The first method he mentions is surveys, which I really wouldn’t recommend. I don’t think he does either, he just wanted a point to start from. The 2nd method is doing small jobs on freelance sites. That’s probably an okay way to go, but you’re still just getting paid for your time.
His 3rd and favourite method is to build up a popular YouTube channel. Some people can be very successful with YouTube, but I think you do need to get very popular. I think he’s popular because his videos are all about how to make money online, which a lot of people are searching for.
Is Zero Hour Work Days a scam?
Scam is a very harsh word. I should maybe stop short of accusing Zero Hour Work Days of being a full-on scam. After all, it doesn’t seem to do anything illegal. However, the insanely huge upsell funnel is a big concern of mine. So perhaps this is as close to a scam that something can get without actually being a scam.
Should you buy Zero Hour Work Days?
Personally, I don’t think you should buy it. You’re going to get sucked into the whole upsell style product launch game. Sure, there is a lot of money to be made through that, but at what cost? You will be using deceptive tactics to squeeze as much money out of people as possible. Do you want that on your conscience?
Is there an alternative?
Yes, there is. You can learn how to build an awesome website about one of your passions or interests. Surely you must have something you are interested in or passionate about? Whatever it is, you can create a high-quality website which really helps people. This builds people’s trust, and then they are more likely to trust the products you recommend.
The best place to learn how to do that is Wealthy Affiliate. The great thing is, you can actually try it out for free. You can do the first 10 lessons and spend a week as a free member. This is the best way to know whether something is for you or not, to actually try it out.
