Is Traffic Authority a Scam?

Filed in Product Review by on November 14, 2015 10 Comments




Product name: Traffic Authority


Price: Free to join, many expensive products

Verdict: Not recommended


Recently I’ve come across a program called Traffic Authority and I decided to write my own review of this system.

To be honest, I was skeptical about this program before I even visited their website and when I finally visited their site and watched their promo video I realized immediately that their so called amazing system is nothing more than a hype.

The owners of this program, Greg Chambers, Doug Wellens and Chad Stalvey claim that it’s a complete system that can make you thousands of dollars and it’s the most exciting opportunity on the entire web and they even promise that you can make money like Facebook and Google.

Claims are big, expectations are big, commissions promised are big. Let’s take a closer look at the Traffic Authority to see if it does live up to its promises.



The main idea behind Traffic Authority

Traffic Authority is claimed to be a complete traffic solution that sends you premium on-demand traffic in order to help you grow your business and start making money like Google and Facebook.

Once you become a member of this program you need to buy expensive traffic packages and promote this system to other people in the hope that someone will buy it and you will earn a fat commission. The idea is not new at all.

All you have to do with the program is spend your money without any guarantee that you will make any money at all.





Pros of Traffic Authority

  • Free to join
  • Some useful training material and tools


Cons of Traffic Authority

  • The opportunity is very limited
  • Unrealistic claims
  • Extremely expensive traffic packages
  • No real support


Inside the program

Traffic Authority Training

As I said above, Traffic Authority is mainly geared towards selling you expensive traffic packages and contains some training materials with pre-written messages. It’s not a program that will teach you how to build an online business based on your passion.


It’s just a system that you have to promote whether you like it or not. The good news is that they pay very generous commission for each sale. But promoting expensive packages is not easy and in order to drive traffic to your offers you need to buy traffic from Traffic Authority which is not cheap.

Or you need to be extremely active on Facebook and use their prewritten posts or private messages in order to promote Traffic Authority on Facebook. There is nothing special about this training and you can find all this info on other sites or YouTube.





But it’s good that they have prewritten messages. The bad news is that other people who join this program will use the same messages and it appears that everyone who joins Traffic Authority is going to spam Facebook using the same prewritten stuff which is not good at all.

They have also prewritten emails and solo ads which is good and bad for the same reason mentioned above.


Buying traffic

Then comes another part of Traffic Authority program which is their main part that makes them the most money – the traffic.

There are three packages:

  • Reseller License (basic tool to start your own business) which will cost you $20 per month
  • Reseller License + Traffic Optimizer which will cost you $47 per month
  • Reseller License + Traffic Optimizer + Traffic Academy will cost you $144 per month

With all these packages you get website, materials etc.




They also offer you solo ad packages:

  • Tester: 200 clicks – $327
  • Over-Achiever: 300 clicks – $447
  • Semi-Pro: 500 clicks – $687
  • Uber-Preneur: 1000 clicks – $1140
  • Titan: 2000 clicks – $2280



The average cost per click is between $1.37 -$1.63. This is of course not cheap at all. I normally buy traffic from Bing&Yahoo (Bing ads) and one click of super targeted traffic costs me approx. $0.14 which is much cheaper than buying this traffic from Traffic Authority.

I’m not saying that traffic that comes from solo ads is useless. Some people get pretty good results with it, but the price is not cheap and the traffic is not laser targeted. You just throw your offer onto someone’s email list in the hope that someone will opt in or buy your offer.

There is no guarantee at all. Even if you have one or two sales you must make enough to be profitable or otherwise you will be wasting your money on these expensive packages and getting no results you expected and finally you will end up completely frustrated.

I’m not trying to see everything in negative light. This is very realistic analysis based on real life experience.
That’s why, my main issue with all similar programs like Traffic Authority is that they mainly focus on paid advertising which is not always the best option for people that are just starting online.


They also have a full compensation plan: Infinite Leverage

Traffic Authority Traffic Packages are as follows:

Company launch plan, Compensation plan, Marketing plan

  • $220 package – pays $100 in commissions
  • $440 package – pays $200 in commissions
  • $660 package – pays $300 in commissions
  • $1,097 package – pays $500 in commissions
  • $2,197 package – pays $1,000 in commissions
  • $4,297 package – pays $2,000 in commissions
  • $8,397 package – pays $4,000 in commissions


The main idea behind these traffic packages is to “help” you drive traffic to your website and sell the same traffic packages to other people.

The owners of Traffic Authority explain this process as follows: You buy their traffic packages and then as the owner of these packages you promote them to other people and since traffic is the key to online success other people will buy these packages from you over and over again and you will be making money for years.

Sounds great, but this mechanism will work only if you can convince other people to pay that much money and buy these expensive packages. If you buy these packages and can’t sell them you will be a loser.

To be honest, I wouldn’t pay so much money for these packages. It’s not easy at all to sell high ticket items on the internet. A friend of mine was involved in a similar business and ended up wasting over $7000.


No guaranteed results

The main problem with Traffic Authority is that in all their promo videos on their website they repeatedly tell that their program is a complete system and you will never find anything close to it.

In reality Traffic Authority is geared towards making more money off of you instead of helping you and by joining this system you will be doing the same in order to make money.

Trust me and my experience, selling high ticket items requires serious investments on paid advertising and experience with no guaranteed results.


Does Traffic Authority provide any real support?

It looks like inside the members area they have only FAQ section and email address. To be honest, this is not what I expected from a company that asks me to pay a few thousands of dollars for their services.

I’m sure their support is outsourced to someone who doesn’t even know the subject and I’m sure it will take a few days before you can get any quality response.



Traffic Authority provides you with some tools:

Full Customizable Capture Pages

Advance Link Tracker Rotator

Pop Ups,Exit Pages

Split Testing Software

Website Rotators

Countdown timers

All these tools are of course very helpful for your online business because building a list is an essential part of any online business, tracking and testing can give you a lot of important info about your traffic and help you increase conversions.


Nothing is free

There are definitely some positive sides in the program, but in order to be able to promote their packages and earn fat commissions they promise you, you need first to buy those packages.

You need to pay for the training which is $97 per month, you need to pay $27 monthly for the tools. There is nothing free inside the members area, only pre-written messages and some short training videos.


Why I don’t like Traffic Authority

It becomes clear that the owners of this program have created this system for the sake of making money, not helping folks. They promise that your quick action will pay off for you for years to come.

The main idea of the product is to make you a reseller of the Traffic Authority products.

But the question is: can you sell such expensive products? Or do you think it’s easy to convince people to buy them?

Are you ready to pay so much money for the expensive traffic packages and pay monthly for the tools and training?

Plus, they don’t even teach you how to drive traffic from search engines which is very important and an essential part of any online business. Search engine traffic is a free and targeted traffic and you definitely need it if you want to succeed online.

They don’t teach you this because they want you to buy traffic from them. That’s the issue. And that’s why I don’t like Traffic Authority.


Final word on Traffic Authority

My final opinion about Traffic Authority is as follows: Traffic Authority is not a scam because it provides you with some helpful tools and training.

1. But their claims are unrealistic, promises are false, traffic packages are expensive and you always need to spend money in order to get traffic.

2. Promoting expensive products online is not easy and requires knowledge and experience

3. Nor real, quality support

If you ask me: Is Traffic Authority a scam? No, it’s not a scam.

If you ask me: Do You recommend me this program? No, I don’t recommend it.

If you ask me: Do you have any other alternative? Yes, see below.

    Rufat, like your straightforward review. I personally dislike those so call gurus who make big claims, shows fast fancy cars, houses where there is a genie somewhere to make it all happen overnight.
    So the developer becomes richer from the expensive traffic that their members purchase…thanks for the review man. Really helps

    • Rufat says:

      I agree with your definition and explanation and I think Traffic Authority is one of such programs although they don’t exactly promise fancy cars. But do make false promises and tell that you can become a seller of advertising like Google. Doesn’t it look ridiculous? The difference is huge. Google sends you free traffic while traffic that comes from Traffic Authority is not free. Yes, this is true that Google has Google adwords program which is a paid traffic. But the cost of such traffic is much lower than traffic provided by Traffic Authority. The traffic packages offered by TA are so expensive that I can’t really imagine or believe that someone will buy these packages. There are websites that can send you a decent quality traffic for a much lower price. Another huge problem is promoting these expensive packages to others. Yes, I know that Traffic Authority offers a good commission. That’s great. But it doesn’t make any sense if you can’t sell this package. And I believe it will be extremely difficult to sell such expensive packages. Of course, developers of this program will be much richer because people like you will be buying these packages and then struggling to sell them. Most won’t be able to sell them while the developers will have their share of profit in any case. That’s why I believe this program is by far not the best opportunity out there to make money online.

  2. Joon says:

    Firstable thank you for exposing all these dubious programs. I’m very new to online marketing so I still have a lot to learn but I’ve been noticing bunch of posts from fb where people promoting their programs to increase traffic very fast. I’m not sure how trustworthy they are. Because so far I’ve learned that the best way to increase traffic is just keep creating contents and be patient. What do you think?

    • Rufat says:

      The main problem with Traffic Authority is that in order for you to drive traffic to your website you need continuously spend money on traffic packages because without traffic your business will die. In order to drive free traffic you need to create a lot of content. There are some internet marketers who build their entire businesses on paid traffic, but they have a lot of experience in this field. Ask any experienced internet marketer and he will tell you that they spent a few hundred or thousands of dollars before they could master the art of paid advertising. When it comes to newbies, I’m pretty sure that most likely you are going to waste all budget for these traffic packages without any results. When it comes to promoting expensive traffic packages that you are encouraged to promote inside Traffic Authority, I’m pretty sure you are going to struggle with it with a very limited or no success at all. When you are new to making money online thing you should always start with free methods and then gradually move on to paid methods. Anyway, I don’t think Traffic Authority is the best option out there.

  3. Roopesh says:

    Thanks heavens I read your review.

    Just a week back I was looking at this option, and here I got all the info I need to make a decision.

    I don’t like the up sells part of this business and the fees to start off are not that cheap.

    I don’t recall you mentioning anything about a coolin off period once you sign up with them.

    In any event, I shut the door closed on this one thanks to you.

    Great work

    • Rufat says:

      I’m really happy you found what you found what you have been looking for and I’m happy you have come to the right decision. I think no one likes upsells because the main idea behind any upsell is not helping you, but making more money off of you. And the most money online is made through upsells. In fact, as you can see you are not going to learn any new skills here. It’s just buying expensive stuff and then selling it to others. That’s not a business model.

  4. Lynne says:

    Oh this sounds terrible Rufat! I would hate to try something like this. Do they say before you buy into it that you need to sell their product to make money? Or do they just keep quiet about that until you have handed over your money?
    I hate this sort of thing, it really irritates me that they make unrealistic claims.

    • Rufat says:

      I watched their promo video and they don’t tell anything about their opportunity. They just tell that you will be making money like Google and Facebook without any further explanation. As you can see form my review, the program is not useless, it does provide some value, some training material, captures pages, link tracker, pop ups, exit pages. This is fine, but when it comes to learning real strategies for building a real online business, Traffic Authority is useless in my opinion. Once you join it, your only task is promoting their program and that’s it. It means you buy traffic packages and sell them to others for the sake of commission and without understanding what online business is all about. In my opinion, this is a very specific program that can’t be recommended to everyone.

  5. David says:

    Very good article Rufat! Again, a system that one needs to promote, hoping to make some money out of it. Anyway, I’ve always had bad experiences with paid traffic: it’s not “natural” traffic, so it always leads to poor results. Paying more than $1 per click is way too expensive: one can have better results with solo ads that range from $0.40 to $0.70 per click.

    • Rufat says:

      I understand your frustration regarding paid traffic, but to be honest, I can’t agree with you that paid traffic is not natural. Paid traffic by which I mean PPC is a laser targeted traffic and I had some success with it. If you know how to do it you can make a lot of money without waiting for Google rankings. I know people who are making thousands of dollars thanks to using applying PPC and Facebook ads to their businesses. Just you need to know how to do it properly. It requires some time and patience to tweak your paid traffic campaigns until you start seeing good results. To be honest, solo ads is a good source of traffic, but you must know from whom you buy this traffic. Is this traffic responsive? Many people online sell solo ad packages with a list of subscribers that have been burnt and are not responsive anymore. You should be very careful. As for Traffic Authority, as I said in my previous comment, the program is by far not the best one on the internet and it’s very specific product and it’s not for everyone.
