Is 7 Figure Franchise a Scam? - Michael Cheney Again! [Review]

Is 7 Figure Franchise a Scam? – Michael Cheney Again! [Review]

Welcome to my 7 Figure Franchise review!

First of all, congratulations and give yourself a pat on your back! The fact that you're here right now shows that you're doing your own research before buying into any "seemingly good" products.

I know I only have a few seconds to grab your attention...

So very quickly why should you listen to me?

  1. I'm NOT an affiliate of Michael Cheney's any product
  2. I have reviewed Michael's other products in the past, including The Commission Machine & Fan Page Money Method

Here's the thing...

There are A LOT of people online recommending 7 Figure Franchise to you. But what I've found is that most of them are simply affiliates who want to make money by promoting Michael's products.

And if you take a look at my previous reviews on Michael's products, you'll see that Michael is really good at writing sales copy & create lots of hype.

In fact, in 7 Figure Franchise, he claimed that he will "force you to make money whether you like it or not..."

Michael is really good at writing sales copy!

Not only that, he said 7 Figure Franchise is a "turnkey solution" for you to make money right away even if you're completely new...

7 figure franchise hype

There's NO turnkey solution in making money online!

I have 2 problems with his unrealistic claim:

  1. To be honest, there really isn't any "turnkey solution" to make money online. It's all about learning the right skills and putting in the hard work. Agree?
  2. In Michael's other products, he also claimed that they are the "turnkey solutions". So Michael, do you mean that ALL of your products are "turnkey solutions"?

All I can say is that those sales pitch are just complete BS!

Is 7 Figure Franchise a scam? Let's find out...

7 figure franchise review

Summary: 7 Figure Franchise is basically just a resell right, with some decent training on traffic generation, for you to leverage Michael Cheney's sales funnel and promote his products. Yes, it's possible for you to make money but you're not building a business for yourself. It's more about helping Michael to build his business which can be taken away from you anytime.

What is 7 Figure Franchise?

Take McDonald's as an example...

McDonald's is a franchise business. You can purchase the franchise license (which usually costs around $45,000) for you to get the right to operate the business and sell McDonald's products.

7 Figure Franchise adopts a similar concept as the traditional franchise business. That's why it's called the 7 Figure "Franchise". The only difference is that it takes place online, instead of offline world.

But in order for you to make money with 7 Figure Franchise, you're not going to sell fries and burgers of course. You're going to promote Michael Cheney's digital products through the business model called affiliate marketing.

You earn a percentage of commission for every product sold.

How 7 Figure Franchise works

Here's an overview of the entire process:

  1. Purchase 7 Figure Franchise ($1,997)
  2. Go through the training on how to drive traffic & promote affiliate products
  3. Drive traffic to The Commission Machine's landing page (it's the front-end product of Michael's entire sales funnel)
  4. Michael will follow up with your referral through Emails
  5. Eventually, he'll promote the high-ticket products like 7 Figure Franchise via Email
  6. You get paid whenever someone purchases any of the products by Michael

This seems very appealing on the surface because all you need to do is to drive traffic and Michael will take care of the rest for you.

But making money is really not that easy. If it is, everyone can easily be a millionaire or multi-millionaire already.

Michael's Sales Funnel

Take a look at the following screenshot from JVZoo:

what is 7 figure franchise

It says 7 Figure Franchise costs $4,997 and it's part of a sales funnel which includes up to 121 other products!!

I'll explain the $4,997 price in just a moment. But 121 products in a sales funnel is just insane. This definitely shows that Michael is just a marketer focusing on making money for himself.

A real authentic marketers will not create so many different yet similar products to make money. They'll focus on one or two products and make them the best.

Now, here's a list of products created by Michael Cheney which are being listed on JVZoo:

  • Commissionology
  • 7 Figure Franchise
  • Commission Cartel
  • Commission Black Ops
  • How To Scope For Cash
  • List Building Black Ops
  • Email Black Ops
  • The Commission Machine
  • Childs Play Profits
  • Fan Page Money Method
  • FB Money Templates
  • Fast-Track Facebook Traffic

Michael Cheney's JVZoo profile

This is a huge list of products created by just one person. Did you notice how similar the names are?

I can tell you all of them surround the business model called affiliate marketing because that's what Michael specialize in. He is just using slightly different approaches to create multiple products, thus more income streams for him.

Anyway, 7 Figure Franchise is considered the "ultimate product" of all because it's the most expensive and you'll get access to all the other products just by purchasing 7 Figure Franchise alone.

Most importantly, you get the right to resell all of them and earn up to 100% commission on the front-end products.

Whenever your referral purchases 7 Figure Franchise, you earn 50% commission, which is $1,000.

Inside 7 Figure Franchise

Now that we've understood what 7 Figure Franchise and Michael's sales funnel is all about, let's look at what are the training & resources provided in the membership...

(This part is for those who want to find out the details inside the product. If you just want to read my arguments and recommendation, you can skip to the Pros & Cons section.)

Step 1: Welcome Video

Once you enter the members area, the first thing you'll see is a welcome video by Michael Cheney to give you a brief overview of what to do.

7 figure franchise members area

Step 2: Get Approval & Your Links

  • Step 2.1: Become a JVZoo Affiliate
  • Step 2.2: Get approval to promote The Commission Machine
  • Step 2.3: Promote other products & funnels by Michael (optional)

Step 2 is all about helping you to become Michael's affiliate through JVZoo and guide you to get your affiliate links.

Step 3: Traffic Generation

Step 3 covers two main components of Traffic Generation - Free Traffic Methods & Paid Traffic Method.

The Free Traffic Methods Michael teaches include:

  • Facebook Marketing
  • Guest Posting
  • Forum Marketing
  • Twitter Marketing
  • Instagram & Pinterest Marketing

As for Paid Traffic, he only covers Solo Ads because Michael is mainly a Free Traffic Marketer.

For Solo Ads, he's directing you to Igor Kheifets' website because he is one of the authorities in Solo Ads.

But just to let you know, Michael will be earning affiliate commission whenever you purchase any Solo Ads from Igor because the link Michael provides you is his own affiliate link.

BONUS: Done-For-You Affiliate Promos

DFY Affiliate Promos are just Michael's pre-written Email Swipes which you can just copy & paste and send it to your subscribers.

BONUS: The 7 Figure Seminar

This is a series of Michael's Exclusive Event Recordings. There are a total of 7 sessions and each session is about 1 to 2 hours long.

For this part, I must say there are really some value here. After all, it's the content from Michael's live seminar. Michael can't be scamming people in a live seminar, right?

BONUS: Free Products

Basically, the "Free products" is just the access to all the products by Michael I've listed above.

By purchasing 7 Figure Franchise, you not only have access to ALL of Michael's product, but you also have the right to resell them and earn commissions.

BONUS: Screenshot Consultancy

Lastly, this is Michael's 30-Day 1-on-1 support. As a 7 Figure Franchise member, you're eligible to personal consulting with Michael for 30 days.

But my questions is...

What happens after 30 days?

There are NO MORE support and no way to get help after 30 days!!

Upsell: Insiders ($4,997)

Okay, let's talk about the $4,997...

Initially, I thought 7 Figure Franchise is the last upsell in Michael's sales funnel since it covers all the other front-end products. But I was wrong.

"Insiders" is the upsell of 7 Figure Franchise which costs $4,997.

As an Insider member, you'll get:

  • Michael to help you promote your affiliate link to his followers on Facebook & Twitter twice to get instant traffic for you
  • 180 days direct cellphone support from Michael. (Note: The 30-Day support for 7 Figure Franchise is only via online screenshots.)
  • $2,500 commission for every Insider sale
  • Featured on Michael's high-profile & high-traffic blog for 12 months

As for the payment option, you can pay $997 as a deposit first and pay another $4,000 in 7 days.

So basically, Insider is just a "membership level" to leverage Michael's social influence to drive you better results. It's also the way for you to get a longer and more direct support from Michael.

Pros & Cons

The Good

1. Michael is a Real Person

After reviewing so many products online, I've seen too many scam products with an anonymous founder.

Many of them simply use a fictitious character to act as the owner. But the real owner is hiding behind his/her computer making money unethically.

Michael himself is present in almost every video and throughout his funnel, you can see the real person.

This is definitely something to commend for.

2. Decent Video Training

I say decent because most of the traffic generation training can actually be found online for Free. The more valuable training is the Exclusive Event Recordings.

But, there are a lot of important components of affiliate marketing that are missing in Michael's training. I'll cover them in the cons section.

3. 60-Day 200% Money-Back Guarantee

Lastly, there's a 60-Day 200% Money-Back Guarantee. But this is very tricky.

Michael claimed that if you didn't make back your initial investment within 60 days, he'll not just offer you a refund but give you 100% more than the money you've invested.

This is a very attractive offer but if you look closely, there are quite a lot of requirement for this:

  • You must send at least 35 unique clicks into the funnels each day using the free traffic methods
  • You must add at least 100 new friends to your Facebook profile per week and make at least 3 posts per day on your Facebook profile

These seem easy but the most troublesome part is that...

"You must document daily in a Google spreadsheet every Facebook post you make, every friend-getting session you undertake (including number of friends added) and the date of each of both of these activities in the Google spreadsheet. You must also share the clicks and traffic data in this spreadsheet which you get from these activities to demonstrate you are getting at least 35 clicks per day over the 60 day period."

Basically, you need to document every single thing inside a Google spreadsheet and share it with them.

This is a legit request but it's extremely hard to meet.

I doubt they will offer any refund because they can simply say you don't meet the requirement so you're not eligible for the refund.

I don't have any evidence to prove my doubt here but it's a legit concern, right?

The Bad

1. Extremely Hyped Up!

Just like ALL other products from Michael, you'll never know what you're really getting until you become a paying customer.

Michael never mention a single thing about what his products will be about in his sales pitch. All he does is keep giving you income claims, fake promises, or his own story things like that...

7 figure franchise commission

Make REAL money online legitimately & ethically is not that easy!

The common message in ALL of his products is that you can easily make lots of money with minimal effort if you purchase his "turnkey solution".

7 figure franchise scam

This is just HYPE!

To be honest, making money online is really not that easy. Please don't fall into such hype and unrealistic promises my friend!

There's no shortcut to success. Neither is there overnight success. If something is too good to be true, it most probably is, okay?

2. Very Limited Training

Despite they have some decent training like I've mentioned earlier on, it's very limited.

As you can see, it's mainly about Free traffic generation. That's all. You won't be learning important skills like:

  • How to choose a niche?
  • How to choose affiliate products?
  • How to build a website?
  • What are the good copywriting techniques?
  • How to build and profit from a sales funnel?

And this leads us to the next problem...

3. Inability to Build Your Own Business

Leveraging Michael's existing sales funnel can be a good short term strategy. Yes, it's possible for you to make money.

But, what if Micheal decides to shut down this business? What if this business becomes obsolete one day?

That's means you're out of business as well. You not only lose your income source but you also lose the skills to build your own business.

Wait, let me rephrase it...

You're not provided with the skills to build your own business in the first place!

If all you know is how to get some cheap traffic, you still can't make money because you don't know how to choose the right products and sell to the right target audience.

Does that make sense?

What I recommend is for you to learn these skills so that they are YOURS forever. You are not relying on some other factors. You are in full control of your own business and destiny. That should be the way to go!

So, I highly recommend you to check out Wealthy Affiliate because it's by far the best platform for you to learn and earn from affiliate marketing. You're building your own foundation and your own business, instead of relying on someone else.

4. Unrealistic Testimonials

Take a look at one of the hyped up testimonials below:

This guy claimed that he was able to make $1,000 in just 12 hours after joining Michael's 7 Figure Franchise.

There are many many more testimonials claiming to make thousands of dollars within just a couple of hours.

To be honest, I don't have any evidence to prove that they're fake but do you really think it's possible?

Even the training within 7 Figure Franchise cannot be consumed within 12 hours, forget about making $1,000 within 12 hours.

Yes, this MAY be real. But the only possible reason is because this guy is already an experienced internet marketer so that he can easily leverage Michael's sales funnel to make that money fast.

If not, this is just a fake testimonials. It's really common nowadays to see fake testimonials especially you can easily purchase them from platforms like Fiverr at just $5.

In fact, I've exposed quite a lot of scam products which hire actors from Fiverr to create fake testimonials.

You can see yourself here at 30 Minute Money Method, Paid Social Media Jobs & 60 Minute Profit Plan, just to name a few.

5. Lack of Support in the Long Run

Support is really important for anyone who wants to make money online, especially beginners.

Yes, Michael does offer some support, like the 30-Day 1-on-1 consulting. But after 30 days, you're literally on your own.

There are no community, forum, Facebook Group or whatsoever platform for you to get help.

This is unlike Wealthy Affiliate where you can get help 24/7/365 because there's a huge community of over 1.3 Million members. Also, there's a technical support team on stand-by 24/7 to help you with any technical issues.

So far, I haven't seen any company that offers a better support than Wealthy Affiliate.

6. Michael SPAM!

Last but not least, I'm sad to say that Michael is a SPAMMER!

Michael put a lot of focus on his Email marketing. He has lots of autoresponder Emails set up in place to send promotional Emails to subscribers.

However, Michael is doing it ALL WRONG!

He is sending at least 2 to 3 promotional Emails per day to a single subscriber. All of them are just selling, selling and selling.

The correct way to do Email marketing is by building a relationship first. Offer value to your audience first before you ask for something in return.

That's why Gary Vee's concept of "Jab, jab, jab, right hook" is so powerful. Internet marketing today is no longer about promotion. It's more about building a relationship.

Unfortunately, Michael is not doing it the right way and you'll not learn such things from his products either.

Is 7 Figure Franchise a Scam?

To conclude, 7 Figure Franchise is NOT a scam because it has real legit contents within the members area. And it's possible for you to make real money.

But I really don't recommend this product because you're basically buying a franchise license to resell Michael's low quality products.

If you're looking to build your own legit business in a long run, buying Michael's products will not help. Instead, you'll be wasting your precious time and hard earned money.

You need to build a strong foundation first, instead of trying to make some easy money and get rich quick. That won't happen!

My #1 Recommendation

Like I've mentioned earlier on, Wealthy Affiliate is my top recommended platform for you to learn and earn from affiliate marketing.

Instead of spending $2K to buy a resell right and some training on traffic generation, you can join Wealthy Affiliate for Free and learn how to build your own website and how to really build your own business without relying on anybody.

In fact, with the help of Wealthy Affiliate...

I've personally created a 4-Figure Monthly Passive Income Stream and become financially independent at just 21 years old without any College degree or working experience!

Through my own hard work, I went from a broke restaurant waiter to living my dream laptop lifestyle in less than a year's time...

I got an email saying that he guarantees that you will make money with the Seven Figure Franchise, and quite frankly, that’s a pretty bold claim if you ask me. One of the things that really makes me suspicious about this, or any product of this tipe is that they don’t mention the price straight up front to people. I don’t have $4000 just laying around to purchase this, and even if I did, I would invest it into something like my Internet radio station and promoting it. Yes, I own and run an Internet radio station that plays country music, and it is a very professional-sounding station complete with jingles, and lots and lots of great country music.

Anyway, back to this program called the Seven Figure Franchise. There have been many affiliate programs that have come and gone over the years promising all sorts of wealth and prosparity. Now don’t get me wrong, I do believe that people make money with affiliate marketing, but like some of the people her have mentioned, you have to do it in the right way.

I for one am not an Internet marketing genius, nor do I claim to know everything either. I Do use things like Facebook and Twitter to promote my radio station, and I am about to release my own product that I will also be promoting on Facebook and Twitter because I have joined many groups that allow for you to promote stuff.

For example, just for my station, I have received listeners from Facebook due to all that promotion on there and yes, it is free traffic. There’s nothing wrong with free traffic methods provided that you approach them right.

The Seven Figure Franchise almost sounds a bit similar to the Empower Network for those of you who remember that program. The Empower Network was a scam and a lot of people lost their money in it. That program flopped big time! In my personal opinion, what I would recommend is that you sell some affiliate products on the side and instead, invest in selling your own products where you will be making constant income rather than trying to make some huge marketer even richer. And there’s a reason why getting a refund is so dad gum hard with the Seven Figure Franchise. It is because they don’t want to really give a refund in the first place.

Now I have no problem with people who don’t offer refunds especially on digital downloadable products because that’s software. Why do you think that you can’t get a refund when you try and return a game to a store? It all has to do with copywright. Whose to say that you didn’t just copy the CD, and then decide to return it tto get your money back?

The same goes for digital products. If you offer the refund on a downloadable digital product, then that individual just got it for free.

Another problem that I see with Internet marketing in general is that ther are always too many bonuses attached to the product. I wonder if those bonuses are really better than the product itself? Imagine going into Wal-Mart and at the checkout line before you pay for your stuff, the casheer starts spouting off all of the bonuses and offers that you could get before you even purchased that product? Can you imagine how much time that would take? And all yo wanted to do was just purchase a bag of Oreos.

I have seen where there was one up sell right after another on some products and that’s long before you even get to the product that you had originally came for. Yes, there is value in everything being promoted online to some extent, but you first have to wade through the hipe and upsells, as well as any other stuff that might come along.

    Thanks for sharing Donald!

Shawna - July 25, 2018

I’ve been a webmaster for many years and shelved my company until I figured out what to do with it a few years ago due to so many people DIY’ing their sites through their web hosts. I mean, I hand-coded in Notepad before laptops even hit the market. So, it’s not like I’m a total newbie when it comes to things web-related.

I decided to promote others and turned to internet marketing recently because so many have asked me how to make money online. I’ve been scoping out program after program and am so far invested in programs, it’s downright scary. I’m in past my neck in STUFF. However, along the way, I have learned a LOT since this venue is new to me.

I DID invest in the 7-Figure Franchise because I gleaned so much from Cheney’s products. In fact, his training helped me steer clear of OTHER junk peddled on the web. So, it made sense that when I was asked what helped me, I recommended some of his products. When 7-Figure Franchise came along, of course, I realized, “why NOT make 100% on the stuff I’m already suggesting to others? Just drive more traffic.” Well, that last part is easier said than done: getting traffic.

My secondary Facebook page was taken down for a bit because I was getting too many friend requests in too short a time. I hadn’t even promoted anything. But that told me that you just don’t playing around with trying to get around paying for Facebook ads. Michael’s technique of promoting his products on Facebook is asking for trouble. Thankfully, after I explained to Facebook that I was just trying to see other posts from around the world like a “National Geographic,” they put my page back.

I guess, to sum it all up with where I’m at presently is this (besides hoping on a daily basis, “Dear God, please don’t let me have thrown 2k into the wind”):

1. I don’t care what you’re going to sell. You must SPEND THE TIME to get to know your products first hand as well as what ‘old hands’ are suggesting you do in other aspects. Money is not made overnight and you need to be prepared to get an education and spend a lot of time. If anyone says anything to the contrary, it’s a hyped spiel.

2. Back to #1: Other aspects. You must become educated in all facets of internet marketing. You need to watch a lot of instructional videos and read online articles and books. You MUST learn how to build a website, create a landing page, how to work with a large variety of traffic sources OUTSIDE of Facebook and solo ads. I’m talking about other resources such as techniques used with Reddit, for example. GET SMART.

3. “OVERNIGHT” is NOT going to happen, obviously, especially when you take #1 and #2 realistically into account. Any product that proclaims that is only saying, “it’s POSSIBLE to make $_____.” Remember that.

4. Internet marketing is not for people who feel like working when they feel like it. It’s not for folks who are lazy. THIS IS A CONSISTENT NURTURING that requires persistence and dedication with an innate desire to succeed. Period.

5. I’ve seen people take really crumby stuff and make great money. It’s in approach and creativity. Are there a group of people UNASSOCIATED with the actual product who could benefit? Could be totally unrelated. In the case of internet marketing and creating an online income, who asks you about it? What types of people are they? Where do they hang out? Do they do tons of yard sales looking for extra cash, for example? There are groups all over the place on Facebook where you can introduce some ideas – not sell a product directly – and gain relationships and authority. GET CREATIVE with your potential audience.

6. One thing I heard recently was SO true, it bears repeating loud and clear, “I don’t care what internet marketing method you use, it will fail for one reason only: YOU didn’t apply yourself and work all the angles you could think of. ANYTHING can be sold, even crap on a plate, to the right people, and in the right way.” So can we then blame the product? Can you ENHANCE an existing product or create a new, better version?

While this review is really honest with the pros and cons, I take issue with some simply because of my overall perspective of sales in general. I would definitely use it, though, because of some of the insights of the product itself – which I happen to agree with. It has faults, for sure. THEY ALL DO.

    Jerry Huang - July 25, 2018

    Wow Shawna!

    Thanks for sharing with us all these advice from your own experience. I totally agree with what you’ve said here. These are great advice for anyone who wants to make money online.

    I appreciate your time and effort 🙂

    Wish you all the best!

      Shawna - July 25, 2018

      Thanks, Jerry!

      I’m actually a writer…combined with the business end of things being a former newspaper editor makes for an interesting combination because I have a habit of looking for facts.

      Oddly enough, here I am building up this one site with recommended products and WAS going to find a picture of Michael Cheney and somehow I ran right into this article at the top of Google. Even though it gave me chills to read it, “oh, maaaan, there probably went $2k out the window” because what you said rang so true, I had to take the journalist’s point of view and pull it back around to some other things I realized instantly.

      Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share what hit my brain. 🙂

      I wish you all the best as well and look forward to following you around! You’ve got a great spirit with common sense and great writing skills to match!

        Jerry Huang - July 26, 2018

        Thank you so much Shawna!

        Your kind words are really encouraging to me and I appreciate that.

        I wish you all the best for your online business 🙂

With all due respect, I take exception to your comment about him being a spammer.

His list is conditioned to receive that many emails per day. If they do not like it, they can unsubscribe. If his list do not mind being sent 3 per day, then who are you to call him one?

And to say the correct way is to build a relationship first and then sell something is also not true.
Sure you can do it that, if it works for you, then great. But to say selling in every email you send out is wrong in any way is completely false. It works and it works great for those doing it properly.

    Jerry Huang - June 30, 2018

    Hmmm…So can you tell me how does sending all promotional Emails to your list has worked for you? How many sales are you getting per day and how much money is that? I’m just curious to learn from you if you think keep sending promotional Emails is the way to go…

      MARK CUTTS - February 20, 2019

      It is an approach advocated by Ben Settle and Daniel Levis amongst others.

      Their basic premise is you need a list of buyers and a genuinely good offer.

      Settle says he would be doing you a DISservice if he didn’t try to sell you something he thought would be of great benefit.

      His one caveat is that you must send engaging emails. He and Daniel Levis are great exponents of that.

      Seems to work for them two at least (Doberman Dan takes a similar view).

      If you don’t know them, google them.

      I have never used their method, but I can see the logic-especially when you use polarisation like they do.

      I don’t say they are wrong and you are right. But I think authenticity goes a long way and your marketing approach has to fit with your personality.

        Jerry Huang - March 11, 2019

        Appreciate that great comment!

Tom Woods - May 27, 2018

I would have to write an entire essay about the problems with this review, but it’s extremely dishonest to claim there are 121 products in “the funnel.” Are you saying people are taken to 121 upsell screens? You know this is false and a misrepresentation.

Then to claim that Richard Legg, a reputable marketer, might have given a fake testimonial?

And yes, it is turnkey in the sense that you can bypass the headaches of product creation, etc. It’s all done for you. Just bring some traffic — and for heaven’s sake, it’s not that hard to drive traffic if you apply yourself.

    Jerry Huang - June 19, 2018

    Hey Tom, so can you tell me how much money have you personally make by just driving traffic to this “turnkey website”?

      Tom Woods - July 30, 2018

      I have made in excess of $100,000 with the 7-Figure Franchise. I get that you won’t believe me. That’s fine. On Facebook Michael constantly congratulates people on high-ticket commissions and you’ll see my name there a lot. My performance as an affiliate for Michael has garnered the attention of other people in IM, who want me to promote their products.

        Jerry Huang - July 30, 2018

        Ok I get it. I’m not saying it’s impossible for people to make real money with 7 Figure Franchise so you don’t need to be so offended and trying so hard to prove yourself. Because I’m looking at a bigger picture.

        People can make real money with this program. But it’s not the best place for beginners to get started due to the reasons I mentioned in my review. That’s why I gave 7 Figure Franchise a score of 40/100. If I said it’s a scam, I wouldn’t give it a score of 40, right?

          Tom failed to mention that he is the host of several popular libertarian oriented podcasts, an author with numerous books, and has a well established e-mail list and Facebook/Twitter presence. I say that not to disparage him; I am a fan of the content he produces and much of it is he offers for free, so he’s gotta earn some scratch somehow, but I am pointing out that driving traffic into Michael Cheney’s funnels is a lot easier for somebody like him with a website, with an established audience, and with a substantial e-mail list, than somebody who has none of those things. So it is not surprising that he could have that level of success, but I doubt someone with none of those things would come anywhere near that.

          Thanks George for the input! I agree with you 🙂

          The original post made claims about the program that are untrue, in order then to promote the author’s own program. My having a podcast is not relevant to that.

          Of course someone with a podcast will do better than someone without one. But I didn’t come out of the womb with a podcast. I worked hard. Other people can do the same.

          And who says they need to do exactly as well as I have? Anybody can build a list of 1000. Anybody. With a list of even that size you can do quite well with 7FF.

Hey Jerry,

A sales funnel with 121 products is a no deal for me! Whether I’m the one promoting them or buying them, that’s 120 products too many. I’m betting they’re repetitive too.

I can tell that 7 Figure Franchise isn’t for me if all Michael’s gonna teach me is how to promote his products. It seems like I’m growing his business and doing all the work for him. LOL

And the requirements to get your money back are atrocious. Facebook’s algorithm makes it difficult to add that many people a week because they’ll think you’re a bot promoting spam.

I believe the limit is 3 on how many times someone can deny your friend request and then you get sent to FB jail or something? I don’t remember.

Any ways, I prefer to add value than to just spam to make more money.

Thanks for sharing,

Dear Jerry
This is an awesome post, dealing with some very tricky details in affiliate marketing. It is quite hard for a person who is not well versed in the arts of affiliate marketing to distinguish what is essential in one program and what should be avoided. This is why your post is incredibly useful for anyone who is considering training for work online and programs like 7 Figure Franchise by Michael Cheney.

Wealthy Affiliate has a fantastic training program and a super-supportive community. Help is accessible 24/7/365, and not just any help, but from the very top! The founders themselves are closely involved in creating the training, giving advice, being there to guide you through things that might be unclear to a newbie. Having had first-hand experience with the Wealthy Affiliates platform, I would too, recommend them to anyone seeking to start their own online business.

Hey Jerry,
Thanks for this review. Although I haven’t come across 7 figure franchise yet, it’s good to be reminded of what should smell like scam. Sadly, we’ve been all scammed and tricked, because somewhere deep inside, we want to believe the lie.
We want to believe, we can make 1000$/day easily with no former experience. Only, if we have learned it the hard way multiple times, common sense gets stronger then wishful thinking.

I am glad for brave people like you who are taking the high road. Pointing out these scams is a valuable service to the world. There are so many people desperate to make a living out there who will fall into these traps.
We need more young men like you to keep us all thinking before we leap. I have heard stories of people using their last bit of money to invest in these scams and it is sad that there are still humans out there so in love with the dollar that they will screw people over like that.

Dang man, Glad you wrote this. I’m always super hesitant when there is some crazy price for a digital product. For me thats just a red flag period, and you hit the nail on the head. Very informative review and I will be staying away. Love your site by the way.

Norman Richards - May 21, 2018

Jerry, this is very interesting. Just the cons alone says that this program is a NO NO even though there are some good things about this product. Thanks so much for such a great review to help people when deciding which program is legit and which ones are not.

Wow, this is a really great review and I am glad that I have found this before even considering 7 Figure Franchise. First of all, what a hefty up-front cost just to become a franchise owner of what. Your example with McDonalds is perfect. Now that is a real franchise. I can’t see spending so much up front for nothing tangible in return. Thanks for the great review!
