My Advertising Pays Review – If You Can Click a Mouse, You Can Earn With Us

Filed in Product Review by on March 4, 2015 58 Comments




Product name: My Advertising Pays


Product owner: Michael Deese

Price: Free and then $24,99 per month

Verdict: Not recommended


My Advertising Pays by Michael Deese has been launched since 2013 and the program owner claims that you can join his program and start making tons of money right after joining.

The most interesting part of this program is that Mike claims that you don’t need to work that much to make tons of money. The only thing you need to do is just create your account, click 10 ads and grab the money. That’s it.

Advertisers can put their ads on his network and if someone buys a product through their ad they can possibly make money.

Also, you can sign up for an affiliate program with My Advertising Pays and whenever you refer someone to that website and he opens his account you can make money. So, the main idea is that you can click 10 ads and make tons of money each and every day.



The main idea behind My Advertising Pays

The whole My Advertising Pays scheme is a bit confusing, not to mention their payout scheme. If you are an advertiser then this opportunity is absolutely worthless and a waste of time and money simply because their traffic is not targeted.

If you are looking for this opportunity to make money then it’s not as easy as you might be thinking. If you think you can click 10 ads and grab the money then I’m going to disappoint you. This will not happen. Michael explains it as 3 simple steps: 1,2,3.

All revenue sharing sites are very risky and you can lose your money at anytime. They don’t guarantee any income and theres is no money back guarantee.




Pros of My Advertising Pays

  • Free trial
  • You can make some money


Cons of My Advertising Pays

  • False promises
  • Many upsells
  • Requires investments from $24.99 up to $1000
  • No money back guarantee
  • Useless traffic
  • Complaints



Inside the program

1. First off, if you are an advertiser then My Advertising Pays is absolutely useless program simply because traffic exchange networks have untargeted traffic and if you put your add on their network you will not get any visitors interested in your product.

The reason is simple, those people that hang on Mike’s site get paid for clicking ads and that’s why they are not interested in buying any products.

Of course, you probably can get some visitors, just few, and most probably they will not buy and you will end up wasting your advertising $.

You need a lot of targeted visitors, so maybe some of them will complete the order. This is how online business works. Targeted traffic is the key. That’s why, using My Advertising Pays as a traffic source is a complete waste of time and money.


2. Another problem with My Advertising Pays is that they claim that you buy an ad package for $49.99 + some other fees. So, total spending is $56.69 and then you need to click 10 ads a day and they will pay you back $60.

But they will deduct $3 + $3 (direct deposit fee) and finally you earn $1.69. Not that much at all. Plus, it doesn’t mean that you click 10 ads and they will pay the money. It may happen that you won’t make as much money as you expect.

Let’s say you have 10 positions which means you should be making $10 a day, BUT instead of that you can be making $2 or $3 a day. Because your revenue depends on the revenue of the company. This is what happened to me when I was a member of another revenue sharing site Traffic Monsoon and I finally lost over $350.


3. Advertisers pay My Advertising Pays for the ad space and they expect targeted traffic (visitors) because if they don’t make any sales they will not pay Mike next time. But Mike claims that he will pay you just for clicks. If you believe that it’s true then go and try his program. It’s free for the first 30 days.


4. Another big problem with My Advertising Pays is that it’s being heavily promoted by Simon Stepsys who was a promoter of another poor program with a bad reputation, such as Banners Broker. You can read my review and learn some facts about that ponzi scheme. I believe you will be amazed when you learn all the truth about Banners Broker.





5. In the promotional video on YouTube, Simon’s speech is so ridiculous that it really annoys me. Though it’s very short, a little over 1 minute, he repeats multiple times that you need to buy credit as much as possible to make more money and this is exactly what he is doing right now.

And he claims that he has made 600k in 9 months! This is so laughable… Can you really believe that guy with such a bad reputation? FYI, Banners Broker was shut down in 2014.


6. The same guy is heavily promoting another ponzi scheme that has a lot of complaints and has been reported as being untrustworthy. He claims that you can invest $25 in Empower Network and make $5000 per day! Can you really believe in this fantastic opportunity?






7. Another “amazing” part of the program is that they encourage you to buy as more credit packs as you can and then over the course of 60 days! you can earn $10 :-) Does it sound attractive to you? To me, not.


8. Also, keep in mind that when your 30 day trial period expires, you won’t be able to get your profit share. You need to choose one of their membership packages. Basic membership package will cost you $24,99 per month + some other fees = $28.52


9. There are a lot of complaints about My Advertising Pays on the internet. Look at the image below and read it carefully. This is a real person who has tried this system and he doesn’t seem happy at all. You can find many such complaints if you do some search on the web.





Final word on My Advertising Pays

My final word on My Advertising Pays is that their service as a traffic source is absolutely useless and I can’t recommend it to anyone though they have a free trial and anyone can try it to see how it really works. As a revenue sharing site, you can invest some money at your own risk.

You can make money and you can lose too. I don’t recommend to invest your last money because it’s very risky. Revenue sharing sites don’t guarantee revenue to anyone. If you have some free money that’s ok. Do it at your own risk.

In fact, I lost $364 with another very popular revenue sharing site Traffic Monsoon and that’s why, I’m now very careful and can’t confidently recommend any revenue sharing site.

  1. Kenny Lee says:

    First of all, I think reputation matter, especially the owner who created such program. I wouldn’t want to advertise my product with platform with questionable reputation. In a world where people are attracted to number of ‘likes’, ‘clicks’ or ‘views’ it’s easy to fall into scam like this as they forgot that advertising effort must be targeted. Else it’s just like throwing money into the ocean.

    • Rufat says:

      Of course, reputation matter. But MAPS is not just about advertising a product. Advertising your product within the network of any revenue sharing site is definitely a waste of time for the most part. Because first I tried revenue sharing sites and I know what I’m talking about. Second, their traffic is not targeted. Members of such sites are not interested in your product. They want just to click on your ad in order to get paid for it. But when it comes to making money out of revenue sharing sites in general and MAPS in particular, it’s risky. I lost over $350 in Traffic Monsoon and that’s why I tend to not recommend revenue sharing sites to people that want to spend their last money. Just don’t do it.

  2. JoshyT says:

    Thanks for writing this informative review; I’ve been stockpiling a list of all scams and one’s-to-watch out for. This will definitely be adding to the list.

    I’m just glad that I read this review before trying out myself.

    As someone who is experimenting with trying to find (legitimate) ways of making money online, which site/s would you recommend? I’ve heard good things about Affiliorama, I’ve also heard good things about Wealthy Affiliate.

    What sites would you suggest (not MAP obviously)


    • Rufat says:

      I think MAPS is not exactly a scam because they make payouts to their members and some people are making money with it while others lose. In my review I didn’t say that it was a scam BTW. When it comes to legitimacy, most of the time revenue sharing sites are considered legit businesses, but still some of them are not that bad. I personally don’t recommend any of them because it’s a ricky investment and in fact I lost over $350 with another revenue sharing site called traffic monsoon. When it comes lo other legit programs, I thinks WA is one of the best ones, Chris Farrell, Affilorama and Bring the Fresh and some others. In fact, there many of them and I can’t list all of them here.

  3. Chris says:


    Great site! More people need to know about these guys and their scams. It takes time to generate a steady income, it doesn’t come from ponzi schemes and other membership scams.

    Unfortunately a lot of people get taken advantage of and lose a lot of money. The best way to find out if a program is legitimate is to do a web search. Finding a review site like yours and having others posting their experiences online help educate before losing your money.


    • Rufat says:

      In fact, MAPS is not a scam. But it’s very risky and if you plan to invest your last money, I don’t recommend it. Plus revenue sharing sites don’t guarantee any income. If you have some free money and can afford to lose it then that’s ok. You can try MAPS at your own risk.

  4. Blake says:

    It seems to me that all you are doing is knocking other programs so that you can sell your own – which is, in my opinion – the lowest form of life on the planet.!

    You have kept people from joining perfectly legitimate programs – like My Advertising Pays – simply so you can direct folks over to the programs that generate commissions for you. If you were at all honest , you would come out with a post that says that you were wrong about both MAP and Traffic Monsoon and here are the reasons why.
    Yes – in order to make HUGE money with MAP, one has to do some work, but MAP never told me anything else. I do, however supplement my income very nicely with just the surfing 10 ads and what I get from others who joined me simply because they saw the money I was earning – not because I went out and hustled them.
    Clean up your act – you have a social responsibility to tell the whole truth!

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Blake, I believe you are mistaken. I’m not trying to knock other programs at all. The truth is that most programs are knocking themselves by scamming people. Please do me a favor. Do some research and see if there are any serious complaints regarding my recommended program. I believe you won’t find any serious complaints. And I believe you will find a good number of complaints about MAPS and all other revenue sharing companies.

      If you doubt regarding my honesty, please read my review of Traffic Monsoon here and get the FACTS! Also, I have another review of Traffic Monsoon on another website. He is a friend of mine. I wrote my second review as a guest post for his website and this second review contains enough FACTS to prove that Traffic Monsoon is not a good program.

      All revenue sharing sites are very risky. Do you not agree? If you haven’t lost money with MAPS it doesn’t mean you won’t lose. You will definitely lose some day when MAPS collapses. It did happen already to Traffic Monsoon. BTW, I have an updated review of MAPS on my second website. Read it and see if I’m honest. BTW, did I say that MAPS is a scam? No, I didn’t.

      And remember that revenue sharing sites is not a reliable way to make money because you can lose everything at anytime. It’s out of your control. But when you have your own website, you own a business which is in your control. Revenue sharing sites can be used for an extra income ONLY. If you choose it as your main income, you will lose everything one day.

  5. netp says:

    Hi, its unfortunate to see some people reading this have already been conned into shelling out their money.

    I hate the common over inflated earnings claims, which are one of the quickest ways to recognise a scam I think. Thankfully I didn’t sign up to this one, or others that are similar – I managed to avoid traffic monsoon as well, so I was lucky. Thanks for the info, I will remember this and make a note of them.

    • Rufat says:

      Great to hear you haven’t signed up to this program because I was a member of another popular revenue sharing site, Traffic Monsoon and lost my $350 with this company. All revenue sharing sites including this one are very risky. Because they don’t guarantee to refund your initial investment and the profit is not guaranteed too.

  6. Ola says:

    Hi Rufat, ive invested about £3,000 already just about three weeks ago. What can I do to recover my money back? please advice

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Ola, As I know, revenue sharing companies like MAP don’t consider your money as investment and there is no refund. I too invested $350 in another similar program called Traffic Monsoon and lost my money. They simply blocked my account without any obvious reason.

  7. John says:

    Great review of my income pays!
    This sounds like another one of those borderline scams that promise a lot of money with very little effort.
    I am glad that you are letting people know about these scams as a lot of people get sucked into them far too easy!
    Making money online is possible, if you go about it the right way and put in the work.
    Get rich quick schemes such as this are not the answer!

    • Rufat says:

      You’re thinking right. I invested my money in a similar program and they are having an issue with Paypal now and I don’t know what will happen with my money. I think programs like my advertising pays are very risky.

  8. Martin says:

    Hey! Thank you so much for writing this review. I stumbled upon this program yesterday, and thought about trying it out. But after i read this I really changed my mind. Well, looks like everything that promises huge success after little work is a scam this days. So thank you! Be sure to write more reviews, they are really helpful!

    • Rufat says:

      There are much better alternatives to this program such as Trafficmonsoon. But this one has many red flags and I’m sure you will be much safer if you simply avoid it. There are many complaints about this program. Plus they push you membership packages which makes the whole process not very profitable. Other revenue sharing sites don’t ask for membership fees.

  9. Stephanie says:

    Hi Rufat:

    I am truly impressed with your website. You have some amazing content. I have not heard of this particular scam My Advertising Pays, but as you clearly stated in your article, any company that claims you can start making big money in such a short amount of time is full of it.

    What I think is especially sad is how vulnerable people can be because all they want is to have a better life for themselves and their families. And there are so many predators out there that have no problem with scamming people out of their hard earned money.

    I agree with your number one recommendation. I have been with Wealthy Affiliate for 7 and a half months and have been some impressed with the quality of training and resources and community engagement. For anyone that is reading this, you definitely should follow Rufat’s advice on Wealthy Affiliate and give them a try, because they are the probably the only truly legitimate company out there of its kind.


    • Rufat says:

      Generally speaking, yes, if you see big money promises most likely these companies are scams. When it comes to advertising and revenue sharing sites such as my advertising pays, most of them are scams or if not, there are always many complaints about them, like MAPS. I’ve seen many complaints about them. But not all of them are bad. For example recently I’ve heard of the trafficmonsoon by Charles Scoville and as I know people are making good money with it, but the owner of this program Charles Scoville has been the owner of other similar programs such as, that were shut down. This means that trafficmonsoon can be shut down too at any time. So you can make money but there is no guarantee that you will not lose your invested money. You need to be careful.

  10. Linda says:

    Hi Rufat,
    I was so happy to see your review of this site, My Advertising Pays, or MAPs. I being a fool and joined Stone Evans and his PIP plan, was introduced to MAPs, as one of Stone’s famous five. It is a scam as far as I am concerned. You do buy credit packs and click on 10 sites per day, you are to make money. Well, I read a review, can’t remember where now, but you are only clicking on the ads for Stone Evans and the other guru’s involved in MAPs. Your ads which you believe are in the mix for advertisement, are never put into the line up to be clicked. I immediately requested a refund. You can not find a place for this on the MAPs site, so you have to go through your VX Gateway, and your credit card company. I filed a report, as I did not receive what I was paying for. In the end, I lost all of my money, plus lost my VX Gateway that I had already before the MAPs incident. The whole set up is a scam! You did a wonderful job of reviewing My Advertising Pays, thank you for getting the truth out there so no more people fall for this gambling casino act! You write with such passion about these things, have you ever been scammed online yourself?
    Thanks Again,

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you Linda for your great input to my post and I always love receiving comments like this from people who have actually tried the program and can share their real experience with the rest of us. It proves once again that program such as My Advertising Pays is a waste of time and money, at least in my opinion. They promise you a lot of money while in reality you can make a few dollars at best. The fact that tried it and left it means a lot because it comes from your personal experience and sound more convincing. Unrealistic promises and reality are two different things. I’ve seen tons of such programs with the same claims and unhappy members. And I would never trust people like Simon who claims that he has made 600k in six months. Anyway, I’m not saying that it’s a scam and anyone cant try this program if they want.

  11. Andres Santos says:

    Nice job Rufat. Way to get the word out. Where were you a couple years ago. I could of saved my money lol. I bought into this program a couple years ago. Everything you said in this review is correct. It took me 3 months to figure it out and finally ended my membership.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Andres. It’s really great to get comments from real members of this “amazing” program. The owners of My Advertising Pays claim that the only thing you need to succeed with this opportunity is the mouse and if you can click your mouse you can be rich. But it looks like it doesn’t work as they planned it to work and I think that’s not our fault. You have been a member of this program and left it which means that they fail to deliver on their promises and there is no way to ease the process of making money as make as simple as 1,2,3. It’s not going to happen, it didn’t happen to you and is not going to happen to anyone else. But I don’t deny the fact that you can make a few dollars with MAPS. That’s ok, but it’s not what we are looking for.

  12. says:

    Hi Rufat ,

    Enjoyed reviewing your website on all the scamming sites and programs like My Advertising Pays. I was scammed by ” direct online cash” . So I do appreciate your website a great deal . I joined Wealthy Affiliate a month ago, had some health issues, and had to be hospitalized and lost 2.5 weeks of the training . By the time I was able to get back online to complete the training of course my free week was up. not able to ask the questions . However, when I got back home I began going back through the training and have been able to receive a lot of support from members that could help me in asking for the help and letting them know what I didn’t understand . I am sure it would have been a lot easier had I been able to get my site up and going . However, I am very satisfied with Wealthy Affiliate. It is not a scam . I have not been pushed into buying anything at all . Never been asked for a penny . But you done an excellent review on Wealthy Affiliates. I am proud to be in the family.

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you for the comment. I really appreciate it. As for My advertising Pays, I didn’t say it it was a scam. No, it’s not though Simon is associated with other scams like Empower Network. And to be honest, I don’t trust him. To be honest, you can make money with My advertising Pays, but the amount of money to be made is limited. The only way to succeed with this program is through buying expensive packages. If you want to make more money you need to buy more and more packages. And even then it doesn’t mean you will be rich. From every package you will earn approx. $10. Just imagine how many packages you have to buy and how many ads you need to click to make some good amount of money is through referring tons of people to MAPS which is not easy. You need tons of traffic and you need a lot of time to build your list. Anyway, it’s free and anyone can try it for free.

  13. Absalom says:

    I’ll never know if I ever will stumble across their website. Looking at their initial promotion. I probably would have tried it thinking that I can just back out after the trial period. After your explanation, it does make sense that they are in no position to pay properly and there’s no guarantee of anything. In any case, thanks for the review Rufat!

    • Rufat says:

      I can’t give any guarantees of course regarding this program but the fact is that there are many complaints which means you are not guaranteed from the same issues others face upon joining My Advertising Pays. But the best solution and answer would be that the program is free for the first 30 days and anyone can try it and make sure that what I’m trying to explain here is true. Serious money can’t be made by clicking on ads only and you have to work hard in order to build a real business.

  14. Tasos Perte Tzortzis says:

    Hey Rufat , I saw an ad yesterday on Google plus for this opportunity but I was not very impressed.Let’s see what you got.

    A program that is available for almost 3 years , OK , but these immediate claims of huge profits overnight are disgusting.Create an account , click 10 ads and earn how much , let’s say 0.0001 per ad we are not even close to 1 cent.How this system pays so much money for an ad click?

    So they give you traffic coming from their own ad clickers.Without targeted traffic there is no potential online.

    Just by looking at this guy , Simon , I can doubt of his good intentions.Another Hard promoter?..He is even involved with Empower Network?…I can smell a Rip-Off here.

    No way to get paid so much money through clicking ads and through that system.Totally useless , good expose , scam at the best.

    Thank you for another nice read and an honest review , most importantly.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Tasos and thank you for another engaging comment that adds more value to my main review. Of course, it is ridiculous and only naive people who don’t have any clue about making money online can believe that they can simply click on ads and make lots of money. The truth is that if making money online was so easy then everyone would join Advertising pays and I would be the most active promoter of this business. Yes, you can make some money, but it’s about pennies like you say and it’s the scenario. In order to make a lot of money you need to buy more packages and click on the ads like a robot days long and even then you won’t make a lot of money. Everyone knows that without targeted traffic you can’t have any real business and the traffic My Advertising Pays is going to send you is in fact their own clickers. A total waste of time. And Simon is not the person you can trust. If you watch the video on youtube you will realize immediately that he is simply trying to sell you more packages and it’s so obvious that even a child can understand it.

  15. Roope says:

    Thank you for your review Rufat! It’s interesting that there are so many scams and false promises about internet marketing. Sometimes the winner is only the person who is selling the product. I believe that your review is very valuable for many people :). Wealthy Affiliate seems to be useful and totally better than many scams!

    • Rufat says:

      It’s true that most programs that claim to teach folks internet marketing in fact don’t teach anything and don’t provide even a support beginners need when starting online. And I agree that very often the winner is the one who sells their “amazing” product and in this particular case My Advertising Pays exactly falls in this type of programs. Simon is trying to sell more and more packages in order for you to make more money. I don’t recommend this useless program though anyone can try it for free to see if it works for them. I’m sure once you try my advertising pays and then try my recommended program you will notice that advertising pays doesn’t stand even close to my recommended program.

  16. Emmanuel says:

    So in effect my advertising pays is only a scheme run by charlatans who want to take our hard earned money, take our time and make us work their network all for free so that they will reap all the benefits? Why are some people so insensitive to the plight of other humans?

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Emmanuel, you are absolutely right in your statement. People that stand behind programs like My Advertising Pays play on our emotions and they use us to make more money off of us. It’s so simple to understand and yet a lot of folks fall this type of offers. Whole their program is built around luring you into buying more packs in order to make more money which means that they always earn money but we lose in most cases. I don’t want to say that it’s impossible to make money with this program. Some people can make but most people lose their money because the idea of this program is not about helping you or me. It’s more about buying more and more packs like Simon says in the promo. Just imagine that Simon claims that he has made 600k in the first 9 months! Can you really believe in this? I can’t and I don’t want to believe in this fake story.

  17. Chris says:

    I hate the way these types of offers use these hidden upsells somewhere along the way – it’s as if they are planning to ambush you ( which they probably are at the end of the day! ).
    It makes me feel sick when I see how well put together they are and how many people actually fall for them. Thanks for highlighting this scam for us :)

    • Rufat says:

      Like you Chris, I hate programs like my advertising pays that throws a lot of upsells on folks and it’s one of the reasons why I don’t recommend it. Though some people are making money with this program I still don’t think it’s a good option and there are many reasons for that. False promises,
      many upsells, investments from $24.99 up to $1000, no money back guarantee, many complaints, all this in my opinion means that it would be safe to stay away from it and look for something more viable. To be honest, I don’t trust Simon and I don’t think he is honest in the promo.

  18. Eileen says:

    Hi Rufat,

    I really enjoyed the content you have available on your website, especially your review about my advertising pays. Although it does involve a lot of reading, it does provide detailed information.

    One page that I feel could use a change is the “Product Reviews” page. The list is very long and there is no order to the products listed. It might be helpful to have them alphabetical, or numbered, or in some way categorized.

    I enjoyed seeing a video and of course your photo. All of your tabs and links worked for me and your contact area was easy to locate.

    You must have much experience at this, because it shows in the layout of your webpages and inclusion of Font differences and graphics. I did notice that in some of your numerical entries regarding money, you had accidentally entered a (,) comma, instead of the (.) decimal. You may wish to correct those areas. As for MAP it’s definitely not recommended.

    I wish you continued success.


    • Rufat says:

      I’m glad you enjoy my content and the review in particular. I will probably do some changes to the structure of that page as you recommend, thanks. As for my advertising pays, you’re right and it’s not recommended. I hope you noticed that I didn’t call it a scam, just I don’t recommend it. But it’s free and anyone can take the advantage of this program if they believe it can help them make money. I really doubt it can help anyone build a sustainable business online.

  19. SC says:

    This program sounds terrible! I’d never heard of it before but it does t sound like I’m missing out on anything. Very good idea of you to shoe the review from the disappointed MAP user, because it clearly explains the frustrations of the program. Your review is very thorough – thanks for exposing another get rich quick scam.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi SC, I totally agree that MAP is absolutely a terrible program and though some people claim that they make money with it I don’t really think and believe they are honest or real users of this “amazing” program. When I review a product I always search the internet and try to find some complaints from frustrated users to shoe my review with real facts, not just theoretical reasoning. You are right, SC, anyone who will read this complaint will easily understand that that user explains very well why they were frustrated and disappointed. MAP’s financial compensation plan or scheme is confused and complex and you are going to spend money in order to chase after their ridiculously tiny credits. I don’t think it looks like a viable opportunity to make real money. Especially, I’m super annoyed when I see how Simon tries to persuade naive people to buy more credits and refer more people in order to make more money. Anyway, if someone thinks that they can be happy with this program they are free to test drive it but to be honest, I don’t recommend it.

  20. Marcus says:

    I think you’ve hit the nail on the head here that sites like these exist only to make the owner rich. This is the big problem with any make money online opportunity out there. So many people are scamming unsuspecting people and ruining their dreams of earning an online income.

    It’s a shame this turned out to be so bad, because the title of your review made me think that it might be legit. I read that and thought – wow, could it really be that easy. Then my heart sank when I read the red words “Not Recommended”.

    But it’s great that you are warning people about this, because hopefully other people will not fall for it. Maybe eventually sites like this will be forced to close if you keep exposing them for what they really are.

    • Rufat says:

      Hi Marcus, As I can see you leave comment on this post second time and it seems you like my review. I can only agree with you that most make money opportunities available online are designed mostly to make rich people that stand behind these programs and in my opinion, my advertising pays is one of such programs out there. I agree that it’s a shame that these programs ruin people’s dreams by making them false promises and leaving them in the darkness of countless opportunities. And they do so only for the sake of making money which is really bad. I hate programs like this one because their lie starts right from the start. Just take a look at their misleading slogan: “if you can click a mouse you can earn with us”. This is a dream they try to sell you and people like you and me. To be honest, in spite of all these misleading ideas in the program I still don’t want to say that it’s a complete scam because it’s not. Some people are making money with it. But there are many complaints about them and people like Simon are involved in the program who has a bad reputation. I think my advertising pays is a waste of time and I don’t recommend it. Anyway, it’s free to try and anyone can try it if they want.

    Hi, thank you for your blog and information, i am also doing a blog with some useful information about My Advertising Pays, this is just a blog and im not looking for people to join me via it, i just want to show what My Advertising Pays offers and i try to explain why MAP traffic works for many people out there.

    By the way your comment about the membership being monthly is in correct, it is $24.99 per annum not month.

    You can find my blog on i would be grateful if you could give me a chance to explain MAP to you in detail so you might see the business from what is is and not from what you think it is…

    Best wishes,

      Hi Danny, First off, your url doesn’t seem to be valid. If MAP traffic works for you or some other people I’m fine with it. I have enough experience in internet marketing and know which traffic is worth your time and which is useless. As for monthly payment, I don’t think I’m wrong. If you want to explain or share some of your thoughts here please do it. I’m fine with it. The fact is the fact and what I know exactly is that my advertising pays is not a good option to build a successful and sustainable business online, not to mention make thousands of dollars with a click of your mouse. I know many successful internet marketers that are making a few thousands of $ per month and all this was possible thanks to their desire to learn, dedication and effort. Making thousands of dollars by clicking a mouse is a dream my advertising pays tries to sell to people. Anyway, I didn’t say that the program was a scam. It’s not recommended in my opinion, especially when people like Simon Stepsys are involved in the business. But if it works for you I’m really happy that you found your way.

    I admit I have never heard of this program before which is probably a good thing because as you say it’s a waste of time even for free. I am pleased to see that you are promoting a totally legit program Wealthy Affiliate that I already a member of and so pleased that I am as it has given me a great education about how to make money online. Prior to my experience with WA I was wasting my time chasing bright shiny objects and getting nowhere and falling victim to the many scams online. I applaud you for pointing people in the right direction, good work. :)

    • Rufat says:

      Yes, Peter, in my opinion it’s a waste of time even for free because programs like this one point people who have no any clue about making money online in the wrong direction and what can be worse than wasting your time only to realize later that you were ripped off. As for WA, the program does really provide and excellent education and by doing so it saves people from falling victims to numerous scams.

  23. Dean says:

    I agree with you completely.
    I signed up at My Advertising Pays just to look what are people so heavily promoting and realized that it is nothing else than useless service asking for investing money and recruiting others.
    Of course that I did not invest anything.
    If we forget about other fees and for 50$ get 60$ and we want to make 1000$ per month, then we have to invest 5000$. No thanks!
    I hope that many people will find your review before they even join such a ponzi scheme.

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you Dean for your valuable thoughts on my post. Yes, I do believe that many folks will find my review or nay other honest review before they join this amazing program and save their money and time. It’s good that signed up and checked for yourself that there was nothing valuable in the program so others can understand what they are expected to get from this program. What amazes me the most is that some people are desperately promoting my advertising pays and want to convince people that this program can help them build a real business online and start making serious money while in fact this program is nothing more than a waste of time. Just imagine how the program works: you buy packages and then start clicking on ads, wait for 30 seconds and then leave and you get paid for this shady and useless activity. Does it look like something serious? Clicking on ads will never make you any real money, just pennies. You need to buy expensive packages in order to have a chance to make more money and it’s going to be a never-ending process. I would never spend even a dollar on this program and don’t recommend it to anyone.

    Hi Rufat,

    I have never heard of them until I have read your review and I am glad I have read your review.

    Basically, it is a good thing to have a free trial because you can just give it a try but as you mentioned there is no use if the ads are not targeted. To meet the demands of the right target group is essential for every business not only for online businesses.

    The reason why it seems like a scam to me is that you have to purchase a pack for appr. $50 and you can just earn $60 with this pack. Minus the fees you have to pay it’s just $5 and this is just crap and as you said not worth the time and money.

    What kind of other program would you recommend?


    • Rufat says:

      I agree that it’s good when you can try a program for free because this way anyone can make their own, informed and free decision regardless of whether the program is a scam or legit. But the problem is that in case with my advertising pays it’s like you say a waste of time and money IMO. Yes you can make a few bucks but it’s not worth the time and if you want to make more money you need to invest more. I personally wouldn’t want to invest my money because there is no money back guarantee here. And how can it be possible when shady people like Simon are promoting this shady opportunity? I think seeing this guy in the program is alone enough to understand that MAPS is not something that is worth your time, not to mention money. As for recommendation, I recommend you to read about the program at the end of my review and the best part of it is that there is a free trial too. Let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to help.

  25. Andrea says:

    Wow, I am amazed that these programs are even around, people really are desperate to make money I guess.

    This program sounds like a big waste of time. I agree that Wealthy Affiliate is the place to be if you want to build a legitimate business. I am a member there and I love it! My website is starting to make consistent sales, and I couldn’t have done it as quickly without Wealthy Affiliate.

    • Rufat says:

      Yes, Andrea and I’m really amazed just as you are that programs like my advertising pays are still live and still scamming honest people out of their money and the only reason is because most people have no any clue about making money online. People that stand behind my advertising pays are very well aware of that and they know that most folks fall for their tricky offers. If making money was as easy as 1,2,3 by clicking a mouse then our world and our life would be different. I agree that it’s a compete waste of time, especially when scam artists like Simon are involved in this opportunity. I agree that WA is absolutely different from most other programs out there and I love this program for their realistic approach and for not making false promises to anyone.

    Hello Rufat,
    The layout of the site is nice and you have a good way of presenting the case not to get involved with “My advertising Pays”.
    You termed it as “useless”, very nice way to put it. I have never heard of this particular program but there are so many of them out there it is hard to keep up with them all.
    Thanks for the info on this one.


    • Rufat says:

      Thank you San for your comment. When I review a product I always try to keep to the point and do my best to clearly explain my position without any fluff. That’s why I chose this simple format as 1,2,3.. This way I allow my readers to see clearly all pros and cons of the program. As for my advertising pays, it’s really useless and I think it’s the best definition for this program because there is no way to make a good living by clicking on ads. It’s not a business and unfortunately there are many such programs out there. All I can do is write a review and help folks find the right program.

  27. Jordan weatherill says:

    Great post and detailed explanation about maps. I don’t recommend anyone join as it will soon close and run away with your money.

    Get chargebacks to your credit card if you have purchase packs.

    I highly recommend wealthy affiliate too.

    Much respect

    • Rufat says:

      I’m glad you like my post and I agree that MAP is not recommended simply because there are many other great opportunities out there.

  28. edy says:

    As usual, great review Rufat.
    I have never encountered advertising pays before. Really glad that you mention it here.
    We all hate hidden upsells.
    Those scammers are giving too many hypes and false promises.
    Thank you for your review buddy!

    • Rufat says:

      Edy, it’s good to hear that you have never encountered this program because you saved your time, but on the other hand you could laugh until you cry. My advertising pays is really one of the worst programs out there I’ve ever encountered on the web, though I review a lot of products almost every day to save people from scams or poor products/programs. What can I say about this program? There are many upsells, unrealistic and false promises, no support, same scam artists promoting this garbage to other victims etc. There are so many negative points here that It’s really annoying to name of all of them here. Especially Simon Stepsys really annoys me for scamming people only to be paid by big dogs. Pretty shameful.

  29. Marcus says:

    This is a good thorough review. However, I have a few suggestions for improvement:

    1) Make the URL a clickable affiliate link. Same with any images, plus a few places where you mention the name My Advertising Pays. Some people will click it to see what you are talking about, and occasionally somebody might be stupid enough to actually sign up.

    2) The bit that says “I Know of a Program That…” which links to your WA review, put this further up. I suggest putting it immediately under “Verdict: not recommended”. There will probably be some people who will want to go to another site once they see that My Advertising Pays is not recommended, and they may not bother to read the rest of your review. If you include a link to your WA review immediately at that point, you might catch their interest and they might click it. Because then what you’re saying is: the thing you came here for is bad, but here’s something else instead that’s great.

    • Rufat says:

      Thank you Marcus for your suggestions. I didn’t want to add affiliate links to this program because I wouldn’t want someone to sign up for this scam. But many people add their affiliate link. I add too but when a program is not a complete scam like this one.

      As for your second suggestion, it’s really a good suggestion and will add the link to that review later. It might be very interesting to see what happens after that. I think you’re right and many people are too lazy even to scroll the page down to see what is there and instead they go to other sites that promise them a pie in the sky. Thank you for your suggestions.
