7-Figure Franchise 2019 Review: A Smart Expensive Scam?
So you really want to buy the 7-Figure Franchise but you are still skeptical because it kinda looks like it's too good to be true?
I bought one of Micheal Cheney products, The Commission Machine 2019 and as I was going through the training I was sick and tired of the 7 Figure Franchise promotions.
Plus I'm receiving literally three to four emails per day just from Micheal Cheney and his 7 Figure Franchise!
I get the feeling like Michel Cheney desperately wants to sell his product.
With that said, I did NOT buy the 7 Figure Franchise.
Lots of people are looking for reviews so today I'm just going to share my opinion as to why I don't like the 7 Figure Franchise and I why don't think it's the fastest way to make money online.
7 Figure Franchise - Quick Review
Summary: The 7 Figure Franchise is not a scam, however, there are many shady things that Micheal does to convince you to buy his system.
In this review, I'm going to share with you over 8 red flags and concerns about this system.
What is 7 Figure Franchise?
7 Figure Franchise is an affiliate marketing training and package that contains all the products that Micheal has created.
It's called 7 figure franchise because it's basically a franchise.
Let me explain that!
So Instead of creating a business from scratch and invest tons of time and money to build it, you can buy a franchise which is basically a business that is already making profits.
When you buy a franchise you are buying their:
- Their Brand
- Their Logo
- The resell rights
- Business model
Examples of franchises are:
Here's an example:
McDonald's is a franchise if you want to take over McDonald's and buy their brand and resell rights you have to pay the Franchise fee which is $45,000.
After you buy the whole McDonald's you can do whatever you want with their restaurants and all their products!
That's the concept with 7 Figure Franchise after you pay the franchise fee of the 7 Figure Franchise you will own the resell rights of all the Micheal Cheney products.
The difference between McDonalds & 7 Figure Franchise is the fact that the latter is completely online which means you will earn the resell rights of all their digital products.
Below I'm going to talk about how 7 Figure Franchise exactly works and literally everything you need to know about it is in this review!
How Does 7 Figure Franchise Exactly Work?
Here's how 7 Figure Franchise works in a few lines.
- Pay the 7 Figure Franchise fee ($1997)
- Get the resell rights of all the 7 Figure Franchise products
- Follow the training & start promoting their products
- Micheal Cheney will close the sales for you.
- You earn $1,000's in commissions whenever someone buys from you
Basically, once you buy the resell rights of the 7 Figure Franchise products you will earn 100% of all the commissions.
You're not going to earn 60% or 40% in commissions because in this case, you're not an affiliate you're the owner of Micheal Cheney products if you buy his franchise.
" You'll get 100% of the commissions when you make sales on all the products as a 7 Figure Franchise member.
The 7 Figure Franchise Funnel
As noted above as a 7 Figure Franchise member, you will be promoting all his products and get 100% of commissions.
The 7 Figure Franchise products you get are 121 products!
These are some of the Micheal Cheney's Products
- The Commission Machine 2019
- Commission Black Ops
- Copy Paste Commissions
- Commission Partel
- How to Scope for Cash
- Child's play profits
- The Fan Page Money Method
- Email Black Ops
- List Building Black Ops
These products could be just a single product, as you can see they are all related to the make money niche.
What does that tell you about Micheal?
He focuses more on making money for himself!
The 7 Figure Training Walkthrough
Now that you know what kind of products Micheal Cheney offers, below I'm going to talk about the training in details.
In case you're not interested in the Micheal Cheney training but you just want to see the things I don't like & red flags just click here.
Step 1: The Welcome Video
After you purchase the 7 Figure Franchise you will get access to a video where Micheal Cheney welcomes you and gives you an overview of how the system works, the compensation plan and the products you will get...
Step 2: Become a JVZoo Affiliate
In the second step, you will learn how to become a JVZoo affiliate and learn how to get all your affiliate links that are going to track all your sales.
These affiliate links are going to give you 100% of the commissions.
I like the fact that Micheal Cheney explains in details and clear way how to get started with JVZoo.
If you're a beginner you will appreciate these step by steps training videos that are included in your 7 Figure Franchise membership.
Step 3: Traffic Generation Methods + Free 1000 Visitors
In this module, Micheal Cheney talks about different methods to drive traffic to your 7 Figure Franchise products.
Here you will learn two traffic generation methods which are:
- Free traffic methods
- Paid traffic methods
The free traffic generation methods that Micheal is going to teach you are:
- Forum marketing
- Facebook marketing
- Twitter & Pinterest marketing
- Guest posting
Micheal even gives you a bonus in this module which is 1000 free visitors.
Micheal says that he is going to send 1000 free visitors to kick start your 7 figure franchise business and start earning commissions asap.
That sounds good but in my opinion, the traffic generation methods that Micheal uses are NOT so reliable especially the Facebook marketing method he uses.
The Facebook Traffic Method (meh!)
I have personally bought his product the Commission Machine and I was disappointed about his Facebook strategy to get traffic.
In the sales page of the Commission Machine, this is what Micheal says about his Facebook traffic generation method.
But after going through the training I was told to do this to get traffic!
- Join Facebook groups related to making money online.
- Add 50 friends that are interested in making money online
- Start creating Facebook posts on your Facebook profile that promote the 7 Figure products.
While this method might work it's NOT a reliable way to drive traffic!
And personally, I don't want to friend unknown people to my private Facebook account and start promoting stuff that all my family will see!
I prefer SEO (search engine) traffic which is in one hand VERY reliable and in the second hand when you make it work it will continue to pay off forever and generating revenue while you're sleeping!
That's why I canceled my Commission Machine account, got my refund and moved to Wealthy Affiliate training!
Which is the reason why I work full-time from home now!
Solo Ads from Igor Kheifets (Too Expensive!)
The second traffic generation method that Micheal Cheney will teach you is paid traffic.
You will have to spend money to get traffic but Micheal in this video only talks about solo ads.
Micheal recommends solo ads from Igor Kheifets.
I'm familiar with Igor solo ads because I was personally interested in solo ads for my business to increase traffic and sales.
But I was turned off by the Igor solo ads services because, in my opinion, his services were too good to be true.
Igor will teach you how to build an email list and how to get sales but looks like they have some crazy expensive upsells.
For example, I was continually asked to pay over $3k to get the email list built for me and learn how to use solo ads to make sales.
The Igor solo ads services are VERY expensive and sound too good to be true as well because I personally get turned off whenever someone guarantees me to be successful!
Within this module, Micheal sends you to the Igor website through his affiliate link which is going to make him big commissions.
Bonus: Free Products + Resell Rights
After you buy 7 Figure Franchise you will get access to even more products for free along with their resell rights.
Bonus: Free Pre-written Email Swipes
Another bonus is the free prewritten email swipes, Micheal says that these are worth $7000 and you're getting them for free.
So basically you're going to get the same email swipes that he sends out to his email list.
I used to be a subscriber on his list but after 3 days I decided to unsubscribe because I was getting literally 3 emails per day and honestly they were so spammy and promise you the world.
Micheal Cheney says that he generates 1.1 million dollars thanks to these email swipes though.
Bonus: 30 Days 1 on 1 Screenshot Consultancy
Micheal Cheney offers 30 days of 1 on 1 support, he says that he charges $1000 per hour for this kind of support and you're going to get it for free as a 7 Figure Franchise member.
So basically whenever you have a problem just send Micheal a screenshot and he will help you.
I think this 30 days consultation is very good and you will learn a lot of new things by talking to Micheal directly but the problem is after 30 days who's going to support you when you have questions?
Bonus: Micheal Cheney Live Events Recordings
As a 7 Figure Franchise member, you will also get access to the recordings of the Micheal Cheney seminars.
There are 7 live events recordings of Micheal revealing his multi-million dollar business strategies to the audience.
Micheal says that people paid $1,000's to attend his live events.
Bonus: $1000 Commissions
Here you will get access to some high ticket products which are going to earn you $1000 per sale.
It's not easy to sell these high ticket products but if you do you're going to be enjoying some nice commissions into your PayPal account.
Is Micheal Cheney a Scam Artist?
I'm pretty familiar with most of the Micheal Cheney products and to be 100% honest with you most of them are low quality.
For example, Commission Black Ops is one of the Micheal Cheney products.
This product is VERY basic, it teaches you how to find JVZoo products and promote them to earn commissions.
The sales page is FULL of hype but when you get inside the product nothing, as soon as you get to the membership area you will be welcomed with multiple upsells and downsells.
Basically, all his products are the same they are only designed to earn him commissions and not actually provide enough value to the members.
I also don't like how Micheal Cheney helps his students. Sometimes he is rude and cocky when replying to his members.
So in Facebook, he is very active making success posts about his students that have earned commissions through his products and what I have noticed is all the people that comment on his posts are his friends and not actual students.
Also, all the Micheal Cheney products have testimonial videos of his friends and not actual members that have tried the products.
For example, when he launched the commission machine he asked his friends to do testimonial videos to make the products look legit.
With that said, I don't think Micheal is a scam artist, his products are legit but he certainly does a lot of shady & misleading marketing and he thinks more about his pockets!
How Much Does 7- Figure Franchise Cost?
Yes! That's literally my reaction when I saw the 7 Figure Franchise's cost! 😀
It's so damn expensive that you would turn away just like the guy in the gif above!
You have two payment options:
- Buy the 7 Figure Franchise by paying a one-time payment of $1997
- Or the 2 part payment plan ($1100 now and $1100 within 30 days)
But as you can see in the screenshot below there is a $4,997 upsell.
Its called insiders and if you buy it you will get:
- Phone support from Micheal Cheney
- Micheal will help you promote 7 Figure Franchise better to earn more.
- You will earn $2,500 if you manage to sell the insider upsell to other people.
You can pay $997 first and then pay $4000 within a week if you can't afford to give out $5000 immediately.
On top of that, you need to keep in mind that there are even more costs involved for example in the 7 Figure Franchise traffic generation training you're taught how to buy solo ads from a specific company.
You need to expect to spend at least $400 per month just for the solo ads!
As you can see 7 Figure Franchise is pretty expensive and you have to spend $7000 to get access to everything!
And I won't be surprised if Micheal comes with even more upsells because that's what he always does!
What I Like about the 7-Figure Franchise
1) Micheal Cheney is Real & Succesful Person!
Although I don't like most of his products as I have explained above, I have to admit that Micheal Cheney is a really successful person and by just getting those 30 days of 1-1 support you're definitely going to take your business to the next level.
In the subheading above I said that Micheal is a real person because I know different scams that use fake owners to represent their product and I appreciate the 7 Figure Franchise owner is actually real and on top of that a successful person you can learn a lot from.
2) Good Video Training
The video training that comes with 7 Figure Franchise is pretty good, there are a lot of things that are explained in a clear way.
I especially like the live events recordings from these the one can be sure that Micheal Cheney is not a scam artist.
I don't think a scam artist would do any live seminar and events 🙂
What I don't Like about the 7-Figure Franchise
1) Micheal Cheney Products are NOT Good Enough
If you look up for reviews of Micheal Cheney products you will see that they have bad reviews.
What I don't like about his products is the fact they are so similar!
- The Commission Machine
- Copy Paste Commissions
- Commission Partel
- Commission Black Ops
These products could be one great product.
But Micheal Cheney prefers to give limited info on each product and tons of upsells.
Micheal Cheney's products are sold on JVZOO and they are created just for the affiliates to promote and make commissions!
This raises many red flags as it kind of looks like a pyramid scheme when the business is all about promoting!
It makes me feel Micheal cares more about his pockets than giving value.
2) TONS of Hype & Misleading Advertising!
Literally, all the Micheal Cheney products are advertised to be VERY easy ways to make money.
When you make some false claims like these you're taking advantage and fooling a lot of newbies!
I don't think it's honest to lie to people like this and take advantage of them, and then you give them some half baked program full of upsells!
Here are some of his unrealistic claims!
If you have tried any of his products then you know how they actually are and how these claims are UNREALISTIC & FAKE.
3) Limited Training on Traffic Generation
The most important thing is traffic and the 7 Figure Franchise video on traffic is VERY limited.
You're learning a few strategies that are NOT that effective, for example, adding 50 friends on Facebook and making Facebook posts is not a reliable way to get traffic!
4) You Don't Have Control over Your Business!
With 7 Figure Franchise, you're basically relying on the Micheal Cheney business and help him take his business to the next level.
You're not learning any skills that will benefit you in the future and if the 7 Figure Franchise business falls apart you will fall too.
I personally don't recommend you to follow any of these done for your online businesses because they are usually VERY expensive and most of their members don't even earn $500/year!
5) Spam Spam Spam! Lots of Spam!
As soon as you subscribe to the Micheal Cheney email list, you're going to be bombarded with emails with lots of stuff to buy!
I signed up to his list and was annoying by his spammy emails!
3 to 4 emails per day are too much!
6) The Testimonials Seem too Good to be True.
The testimonials claim the 7-Figure Franchise is the system that made them the easiest commissions.
This honestly made me very skeptical because there is no way the one would earn commissions right away as soon they set up the system.
Think about it, the training itself will take at least a day to complete, comprehend and get used to the products to promote.
So how can the one earn $1000's commissions in 12 hours? That's exactly what the testimonials claim.
I have no proof that these testimonials are fake but there is no proof either that they are legit.
But by using logic, they seem fake to me or maybe all these testimonials have large email lists and experience so they can earn money with 7 Figure Franchise fast.
Either way, this is fake advertising because newbies will think that they can earn easily and fast online and this is definitely not the case.
7) You Only Need Traffic to Make Money?
The only problem that prevents people from making money online is traffic.
Traffic is the hardest part of the game.
So saying you only need traffic to make money does not make sense to me.
I have bought The Commission Machine 2019 and the training on traffic was really disappointing.
It was mostly about doing posts on Facebook so you can attract your Facebook friends just like Micheal does on his Facebook account.
9) It's HARD to get a Refund!
7 Figure Franchise does offer a refund in case you don't make money, he even says that he will add money from his pocket and give it to you to say sorry for wasting your time.
But there is a catch!
The refund policy is tricky because if you want a refund you need to prove to Micheal that you have genuinely used the training and did not make a sale within 60 days.
There are some requirements you need to meet in order to request a refund which are:
- Send at least 35 clicks to the 7 Figure Franchise Funnel using free traffic
- You must have published 3 Facebook posts per day and added 100 friends per week!
- You need to document EVERY single Facebook post and its date on a Google spreadsheet and share the traffic data and the clicks that you got within 60 days!
If you miss a single detail of these requirements your refund request won't be accepted!
This is just so risky!
Is 7-Figure Franchise a Scam?
I don't believe this program is a scam. However, I do think it's full of lies Micheal Cheney is using hype to promote it.
It means it's not going to be easy to make money.
You need to go through hours of training
Nothing wrong with that. But the hype is not ok, it's dishonest in my opinion.
Can You Make Money with 7-Figure Franchise?
Yes, you can, just remember that most the promises made by Micheal are complete BS. You need to forget about the turnkey solutions and making money easily.
Yes, you have the products, you only need traffic but where is the email list?
If you don't have an email list it's going to be HARD to make any reliable money.
To be honest, the 7 Figure Franchise is all hype, because it does not offer anything new to the table, you have the products so what?
There are millions if not billions of products to promote that offer VERY nice commissions.
And guess what?
You don't need to spend $7000!
At the end of the day, you need an email list or content that is continually generating sales for you while you're doing other things!
Would You Invest in 7-Figure Franchise?
I just wanted to share my opinion about the 7 Figure Franchise.
This program is not going to scam you, if you follow the program you will make money.
Thousands of dollars per day?
I don't know it's unlikely, so much hype around this program.
If you have tried it I'd love to hear your reviews below in the comment section so you can help people make a good decision 🙂
