My Instant Biz Description

My Instant Biz is a business opportunity created by internet marketer Margaret Albright that provides people with a system for making money through commission programs. This product revolves around using the standard referral system to make money, and offers tools and resources to its members for effective program promotion and recruitment.

My Instant Biz Detailed Overview

The creator of My Instant Biz, Margaret Albright, seems very enthusiastic about this money-making program. She claims that she painstakingly developed this system to be a practically foolproof way for anyone to make money. She also claims that this money can be made with a minimal amount of effort in a minimal amount of time. These are not unusual claims for any internet business opportunity, so what is she offering?

First of all, Albright doesn’t ask for any money for the actual My Instant Biz program, although anyone who signs up and follows the program will have to spend some money eventually if they want to keep going with it. Her system works by having you sign up with various other programs, from which you can earn commission money through referrals. These are traffic exchange and safelist programs. One program is mandatory to join, the rest are optional. In order to make any money, you’ll have to become a paid member of the mandatory program.

The trick to making money is the system guide that is provided to you when you sign up with My Instant Biz. This system guide tells you which programs to sign up for. The trick is that the links to these programs that are provided in the guide are referral links. When you sign up with MIB, you get a copy of the guide with your personal referral links in it. This means you don’t have to promote any of the programs except this one.

Albright provides promotional resources for My Instant Biz members so that they can promote the program and make commissions. Promotion through advertising and traffic exchange is what earns you money.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

My Instant Biz Reputation

My Instant Biz seems to be enjoying good feedback from the people who have worked Albright’s system. Of course, it takes more effort than her sales letter leads you to believe if you really want to make money, but that’s not surprising. The people who have followed the system and implemented the resources Albright provides claim that they are getting the referrals they need for good commissions. Anyone looking into these types of programs might do well to check this one out.

My Instant Biz is OK if you don't want to have to support yourself

I started out with mMy Instant Biz, because it sounded good, only surfing and not much investment but time. The $18 per month wasn't bad or the $2 that Margaret asked for was OK too with me.

The problem is that it is very hard to sign people up just surfing because everyone who signs up surfs on the same programs so there is a lot of competition.

Second just because someone signs up doesn't mean they are paying customers. I had a couple of paying customers, one was my wife, they all eventually dropped out, I ended up with two paychecks of about $17 each for about six months of surfing I even payed to get surfing credits so I would not have to surf 4 hours everyday.

The only person that is making enough money to support herself from this opportunity is Margaret, from the $2 she requires from all the members. I was told that I have no business experience otherwise I would know that it takes time to make money in a new business.

Well I have done real commercial start-ups with $1 M gross the first year in sales (Concrete Manufacturing Precast), if you can't make enough money from your new business to support yourself in the first few months the business is going to fail, unless your doing it part time, and don't care if you ever support yourself from it because your working a full time job or are retired and have all the time in the world to waste.

I very seriously believe none of the members are making any realistic income from this except Margaret.

I left sometime ago, and have spent my time a bit more useful then surfing for nothing.

It`s not for everyone

I was member of My Instant Biz for around six months. My experience with the program was up and down. I never had more than 5 people in my Traffic Wave downline. Margaret Albright, the owner, was a very responsive, helpful person. In this program if you can`t personally recruit you will not succeed. I now am a part of other programs that recruit together and share the success. I think this is the way to go. I will not say My Instant Biz is a bad program, but it is not for everyone.

Not Worth The Time or Effort!

I joined My Instant Biz about a year ago thinking I was going to have a great business, make some decent money and at least a few sign-ups.

I was truly disappointed in this program.

MIB is actually a multiple stream of income operation using safe lists to advertise and get sign-ups along with Traffic Wave as an auto-responder. Margaret Albright sets the whole program up. I thought Traffic Wave was pretty useful because of all extras that came with it. Advertising and Surfing on all the safe lists and only a couple of sign-ups in 5 months, you can't make enough money to come out ahead, not counting the $2 a month she was charging me. So, if you drop out of Traffic Wave, the $2 payments will keep coming out of your credit card unless you put a stop to it also. We found this out about 6 months later. And she won't refund you either because she will tell you she didn't know anything about you canceling Traffic Wave.

It is probably a good program if you're a good salesman or guru if it fits your particular needs.

I would recommend Traffic Wave, but not MIB.

MIB just didn't work for me

When I joined this program with all the hope in my mind, thinking... this is the good one, it's free to start and requires no experience or previous knowledge. I thought this MIB would be the last move on my internet search of a home based business but... after I upgraded to the paid level and doing all the steps right how they said, finally after almost 5 months I realize that I was wasting my time and almost $200 in total because I upgraded to two of the programs. I felt so discouraged and I just quit even though I got several referrals, they just never upgraded to the paid program. I hope this will be useful to other people, please do not join this program!

Let's get a reality check folks

Yes I am an MIB member, and reading some of these posts I realized why I got so discouraged with MIB, and was seriously thinking about hanging it up, I was looking for something quick and easy. I realized this after reading the posts from folks who expect just that. It's called My Instant Biz, not My Instant Money... Yes it's endless surfing... and yes that gets old. That's why there are so many other advertising options.

Margaret does put a lot of work into the EB and MIB sites, She is constantly testing splash pages, answering questions in the forum, Etc, Etc... Like one other post said if you think you can do better; it's all yours!

There is no way to make easy money (legally that is)

A complete waste of your time and resources

The problem with My Instant Biz is following Margaret Albright's guide.

It simply doesn't work as she claims. I joined in Jan. 2009 and gave up on it in Sept. 2009. As I was a newbie, I can see how people can be drawn into this program, by it's simplicity and low start up costs. But what I find so misleading is that all you're required to do is surf the TE's for 1-2 hours and this is enough to build your (so called) business.

Nothing could be further from the truth, if that were the case, I'd be

still a member and would so many others.

If you don't want to turn into a zombie, end up with negative ROI and suffer from RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury)then stay away from My Instant Biz.

You need to be the best you can be, start learning Internet Marketing

and take action on what you learn. There's great resources out there!

Too difficult for me

Posted on forums to see if I could get any sign ups and I got a few but none paid so it didn't really benefit me. Since I am not a good recruiter I haven't made a dime with this program. This is simply an MLM with no product. Maybe I needed to invest more time or invest another way to find sign ups but I did not have the time to put in for results that are not guaranteed. I also cannot afford to pay membership fees for a program that is not benefiting me so I would not recommend this to anyone else.

Mind Numbing

I joined My Instant Business about a year ago. I thought that it had potential to help me get going online. I followed Margret's plan to succeed and spent at least two hours a day surfing at the websites that she suggested. I got a large number of hits but no one else signed up for the program. I feel that the amount of surfing that you have to do is unrealistic, two hours a day is enough to drive you crazy. Plus there were a large quantity of ads for the program out there already.

I wish that when I had signed up it was clearly spelled out that there would be so much surfing and hardly any response. Even with the referrals that I managed to get, I never got a chance to get anything of the ground. I found that a lot of the referrals didn't have the patience to do the surfing and disappeared off my list without my knowledge.

I have to say that I did learn some things from this plan. The number one thing was that you really, really need to read and understand what you are getting into before buying into a program.

I would not consider this a good opportunity because it is so mind numbingly boring that most people can't do it for too long.

MIB: It's free to start, it's legitimate, and it requires some serious

I signed with MIB in August of 2009. As one of the most impatient people in the world, I saw something in this Biz opp that was legitimate and honest, with some actual potential. In all honesty, you could very easily make more money gambling at an online casino starting off. Despite the monotony and seemingly sluggish mission to achieve results, if you are willing to invest the time and commit, you will make money. What I really like about this biz is that EVERYTHING is spelled out for you, in detail... all you have to do is follow the instructions precisely, keep yourself motivated, and within 4 to 6 months you will see a pretty decent supplemental income. A word to the curious: if you are not patient, committed, or willing to completely follow through and wait, this biz is not for you. It will only work if you show a genuine interest and put concerted effort faithfully on a daily basis as it is spelled out for you. I like money, so I can force myself to be all of the above.

I felt used and scammed with my experience

Well I worked it hard, real hard and did get some sign ups.

But just before I got a chance to get paid she informed me that she was going to ask my upline if they wanted their first month paid for, So what you think people will take right?

She said if I could not pay their first month in she would pay them in but then they would go to her downline and not mine anymore.

Guess what? I was unemployed and spent all I had working the program and never had a chance to learn the auto responder that she fixed up to inform my down line she'd pay their way in if they went to her.

To me that was stealing my down line. Sorry, but there was absolutely nothing said about this in the beginning otherwise I'd never bothered.

I'm terrified of anyone's stuff connected to Traffic Wave because they keep spamming me, I totally unsubscribed 10 times over and still keep getting those come back to us messages and after they were extremely rude towards me when I let them know how I felt about her operation.

I had a baby to care of, at the time it was my last hope, I felt like I was used to get sign ups so she could take them under my nose.

Just learn your auto responder before you even surf.. Oh and make sure there's no trick messages in there!

Wasting time if you can't recruit

I signed up this program when I saw it's ad in Vinefire. From the emails I received, I found out in order to earn, I need to get referrals. How do I get referrals? The program recommend to sign up a couple of traffic exchanges and start surfing daily to get free credits. Then the free credits are allocated to my own Instant Biz site to get visitors. Hopefully, one of the visitors will sign up and join one of the programs recommended - Traffic Wave and upgrade.

Personally, I don't have much time to surf. Secondly, I don't like programs that count on referral commission solely to earn. Definitely, it's not a scam but you won't make any money if you can't find referrals.

I love programs that members can earn money without recruiting or sponsoring. but that doesn't mean I hate the other programs.

One more thing, rate my comment before leaving this page.

Thank you

 
 
 
Very Boring

My Instant Biz is a good program, and Mrs Albright is a very helpful lady, the program itself is good and will make you money but it is one of the most boring programs I have come across.

If you can surf until your fingers burn, then you will make money out of it, not that much but Mrs Albright never talks of high figure earnings anyway. I even got my 11 year old son to surf for me at a good pay check, but even the money didn't interest him enough to continue surfing as it is very boring, and for the time and effort you spend on it, you might as well spend the time on an other program which I am sure will yield better.

Simply too much competition

Usually, there is a splash page on an ad to make sure that if the customer enters their info get started, the likelihood of them actually going through with the program increases. My Instant Biz takes it to a whole other level. There are nearly ten splash pages before you finally start the sign up process! It worked for me because I signed up, but when I remembered how many times I saw this in Traffic Swarm, I was already reluctant. When I worked the system they said to work, I found out that practically half of the ads in the My Instant Biz surfing programs are "My Instant Biz".

As I discovered, the competition is way too much to expect any signups, especially when it comes to making money from this program alone. If you work this, you had better have a LOT of free time.

Absolutely pointless

I signed on this program because one friend of mine referred me to it and I must say it's one of those programs I wish I never came across. After surfing and exchanging sites and following the program as Miss Albright says, it really is just a waste of time and I never made any money. All I did was surf on websites that I have absolutely no interest in and no evidence of money being made. Worse off, they claim to help you achieve results but really they are no help at all. I think the main aspect of this program is that it is PLAIN BORING! Even if I did make a few dollars I probably would quit it anyway as it really is uninteresting.

My advice: I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who wants to make serious money. It requires a huge amount of time and patience and what you put in is not what you will get.

I don't think so

I'm going to have to agree with most of the other comments here. I think that far too much time and effort needs to be put into this for the small amount of results it produces. I gave it several weeks of surfing, tweeting, and posting to safelists and email blasts, and I had no paid signups, in fact no free trial signups. Had I kept at it I may have begun to see results, but in the end the boring surfing with no apparent results did me in. Maybe for somebody else, but not for me.

Why Bother?

This website says that it can help you earn money by signing up for free traffic exchange programs and surfing them everyday. I signed up because I thought I would finally make some money online. After signing up, I joined all of the free traffic exchange programs, surfed them daily for about two weeks. I found myself getting tired, bored and making no money or seeing any real results. I also, did not feel that the person who claims that she would help you on the My Instant Biz website really does. If she does really help then why are people not making any money from joining her website and following her directions?

Worth it with patience

My experience with My Instant Biz was not very good. I joined My Instant Biz about 3 months ago. I started off liking it because it allowed me to promote my website and other websites I wanted out there. However, it started to get worse and less people were visiting my websites. I didn’t know what was going on so I quit a few weeks later. This website needs a lot of patience. It can be a great resource if you are a patient person. I was not a very patient person and a quit a little bit afterward. I would only recommend this website to those who have the patience and who can work hard.

My Instant Biz is My Instant Biz for Life!

Hi and I am of course a member of My Instant Biz which has just very recently had an enhancement added and now is known as Escalating.Biz which represents somewhat of a sales funnel.

If I can help folks to work this program, it is to follow the instructions provided in Margaret's Guide! Following instructions appears to be the most difficult thing for newbies in internet marketing.

If you "add" to the specific instructions laid out in My Instant Biz, now Escalating.Biz, then the program becomes difficult to work. It's just that simple! Do exactly what her instructions say to do!

My Instant Biz is now actually the #2 biggest earning program within Escalating.Biz. The Online Ad Network or TOAN is now the #1 biggest earning program that Margaret has setup. Why do I say that, well it's because the 3x5 matrix that TOAN uses will earn huge, huge, earnings! Both programs, TOAN and TrafficWave are run by the same owner, Brian Rooney. Mr. Rooney has not missed an affiliate payout in the past 9 years! TOAN has been started up this year.

Margaret's program is designed for long term growth. If folks are coming in to the internet marketing arena looking for "instant" riches then they are falling prey to the tons of marketers out there who are very savvy at taking their (and mine) money. It' like a growing up period until you realize that each new program you come across is just preventing you from doing what you wanted to do in the first place, and that's making money on the internet!

Folks are required to surf ONE hour per day. If you spend more time surfing, then you run the risk of "burning" yourself out! Just be careful. You can surf more of course if desired, but there are plenty of other advertising resources that are made available by Margaret to supplement your surfing experience. You surf daily to build up what is referred to as synergy. That means that at some point down the road, and I'm talking years of course, that you may wake up some morning and realize that your team is contributing over 10,000 hits per day and now your team is providing the surfing required for your business!

Margaret now has My Instant Biz as part of a terrific sales funnel that provides a startup in an internet business of zero dollars, which is the purpose of the enhancement.

Times are tough now, and many, many, folks are still experiencing financial difficulties. What better time to come aboard to a program in internet marketing that allows you to build up a small capital, just enough to startup the two main money making programs that Margaret is offering, with NO out-of-pocket income. Let's face it, many folks just don't have even that small amount of money required to invest in an online business. Margaret Albright to the rescue!

I started My Instant Biz in January of 2009. Margaret's program stopped my plunge into every glossy get rich quick program that I came across and poured my money into it. I've finally found out that you have to work a program at least until the first check comes in!

You have to totally focus your efforts and time into one program at a time. If not, you'll never succeed in this soupbox of scams called internet marketing. Are there legitimate programs out there?

Yes there are! I finally found one and I'm committed to staying with it and couldn't ask for better support than what Margaret's forum provides to her membership!

Folks appear to be turned off for a $2 donation for the admin to help offset her working expenses. If you want to build your own business and dedicate working it for 14 to 16 hours each day, 7 days a week, then have a go at it! I've paid upwards of $35 a month for membership in one of my previous programs that went bust on me because of the economy going south, and I've paid $50 a month and some are asking $100 a month membership fees, and I've paid that, too.

But not anymore...

I want to let everyone know who runs across this review of My Instant Biz that you have gotten hold of an honest, legitimate, online program and you will make money, and that money will increase, as time goes by.

As the saying goes, if you don't do anything about your situation in life now, then in 5 years, you'll be in the same place.

Where would you be financially in 5 years if you'd stuck with My Instant Biz, which even now has been enhanced to DOUBLE the exponential growth of income made possible by the enhancement of Escalating.Biz.

A way to earn your working capital without ANY out-of-pocket, and then no limits to earnings due to the 3x9 matrix that TrafficWave uses, and the 3x5 matrix that TOAN uses!

Everything is done for the new member by Margaret! All he or she has to do is start promoting their referral link in the traffic exchanges, which are the best of the best. There are thousands of traffic exchanges. Margaret gives us the two sites that screen traffic exchanges and we work only with the ones that produce the very best results. Then add little by little all of the other alternate advertising sources that is provided in the My Instant Biz Back Office.

Finally, new prospect, or current members of Margaret's new funnel system, which includes My Instant Biz, it's a matter of semantics.

You have the rest of your life to build your online business, and your online presence, and brand yourself on the internet, and you don't have to worry about looking for the other program that offers that instant income and riches. It just doesn't work that way!

Margaret's way does! That's why I'm sold on her program!

Yes and No

I joined MIB back in Dec of 08 and my success was determined by how much effort was put into it. Since I had dialup (still have), I knew it would take a bit longer surfing the TE's per the instructions, which was not a problem. The instructions were to surf TE's at least 1 hour a day. Surfing 3-4 hours per day was not an issue as I am semi-retired.

In the beginning, I had pretty decent success. Then I would say around May I started to see a steady decline of signups and a few started leaving from the matrix. I nearly quit at that point, due to the frustration of seeing nearly all my signups just disappear. Oh well... I'll hang a couple more months and see what it looks like by then. Then decided to branch out to other advertising schemes, since that was an option (once again) per the instructions. The instructions were well written and easy to follow, but only if you actually read them and not just glanced thru... Since being an MIB member (still am), I have learned a ton about internet marketing. Like I said, I nearly quit back in May but am still around and now I'm glad I did stay. Since using the other strategies of marketing, my subs started to increase and so did the signups, however at a much slower pace. I had set a goal for myself to try to get at least 1 signup each month. That goal was met and somewhat exceeded. Summer was tough on all of us I feel.

The private forum is probably what saved me. I thought... is it me? I always think that... but with several visits of the forum each day, I noticed it wasn't just me having trouble getting the signups. With much collaboration of other members, I decided to take a different approach and alter my schedule... Change is good, as I felt stagnant.

I was (and still am) determined to make this work as I am not a quitter... I am glad I did hang, as I see my stats improving again.

I have made many friends from all over the world, which in my opinion is alone, a big gain. My thinking was that it's not going to come to me, I have to make it work. I have never had to pay the "fee" since day 1 as I had 3 signups my 1st month...

In my opinion, MIB has been good to me, and by solely committing myself to it, I just feel that one day, not overnight, that I'll be glad I stayed. I have seen a lot of negativity here and there, but I feel one must approach this with a positive attitude and don't expect to become rich overnight. It takes years of solid effort and hard work, without that, you have nothing. MIB is a team with a team effort. Without that... once again, you have nothing.

Not Worth the Time and Effort

I joined My Instant Biz several months ago, and at first thought I had actually stumbled across something that worked. I had about 9 sign ups within a couple of weeks. Since that is the first time I had ever managed to get even one referral for something, I thought it was great. After a few weeks though, the sign ups just didn't happen, no matter how much surfing I did, and I surfed every night for 3-4 hours straight. I was beginning to get discouraged, because although I had 9 referrals only about 3 of them became paying members for the autoresponder, (which is how you make money). Then I get an email from the owner asking for a monthly "donation" to help offset her costs. This was a real turn off for me, even though she was only asking for two dollars a month. My thinking is... she is already making money from everyone who signs up for the autoresponder, why does she need my money too? Her reasoning was that after 2 months I should be making a "decent" income, but I was barely breaking even. At that point I just decided to quit because I was putting in way more time and effort than it was worth. I think the owner is an honest, hard working person, and I think her system is working... for her. I am just not sure she realizes that you have to surf a lot longer than she says, for barely breaking even. If you have $18 a month, and a lot of time on your hands, this is an okay thing, but I really don't see it as being something you could earn real money with.

It's a long term growth project, and a tool you need to succeed

Some of the above comments surprise me. But I guess there are always people that don't have patience, or don't understand the concept completely, or are just looking for the free ride (which doesn't exist).

I ran across My Instant Biz about 8 months ago, requested the info, briefly read the report and filed away the autoresponder emails. I was already familiar with Traffic Wave. About 6 months ago I accepted the reality that to be successful, and generate leads for any business and/or product (clickbank, etc. ), I needed a professional autoresponder and ad tracking. It came down to Aweber, GetResponse or Trafficwave. Now keep in mind I am an affiliate for all three. However, I chose Traffic Wave because of the long term growth potential of the affiliate program. The "snowball" effect from upline spillover and downline growth that will come as I continue to market it.

Here is where I think people get confused. My Instant Biz is not a business, but a marketing system to promote Traffic Wave and that is only one way I promote it. When I surf consistently I get sign ups to my list and I have referred two downline affiliates in Traffic Wave and gotten three more from spillover. As of now I am about at break even. More importantly though is that I have put up another 10 autoreponder series for ten other projects (blogs and clickbank products) and have made some profit from those efforts, so technically speaking, I'm in the green and my lists just keep growing. And you know what they say, "the money is in the list". So I feel joining My Instant Biz to promote my Traffic Wave business has been a good move for me because it provides me with an unlimited autoresponder and ad tracking system that is paying for itself, will continue to grow and make me more money every month, and allows me to actually see success in my other marketing endeavors.

Just one man's opinion.

Didn't care for it at all

I found My Instant Biz less than a month ago and I have to say it was a big waste of my time. I surfed and surfed to try to get referrals for the auto responder, but I haven't got one referral yet. I could have spent all that time trying other ways to earn money online, and I don't recommend My Instant Biz to anyone. I have had better luck with other places to surf. I stopped trying to get referrals after a week because I put hours and hours each day surfing with no results. I told some of my family not to waste their time with My Instant Biz and they were glad to find out sooner than later.

Joined and had Second Thoughts

I found "My Instant Biz" through of all things a traffic exchange site. It sounded really good. I even Googled it and saw good things. It was free so I thought I'd give it a try, nothing to lose. Well, I was wrong. After I found out that I had to join Traffic Wave and after a free trial I had to pay 17.95 a month to stay in I was distrustful. I mean here I was being told it was free trial, after we earn we can then pay, I felt cheated because there is no way to earn unless you stay in and pay the money. Then I find out I need to pay a donation to the maker to off set her costs. Well that was it for me. Once I find out there are hidden charges no one told you upfront, I am done. I cannot trust them or believe them again. I read the above reviews and I see what they are talking about. I figured out the traffic exchanges being saturated with "My Instant Biz" and didn't even go any farther than joining. I never even read the instruction. I figured out already it was a waste of my time. Glad I did. I would not recommend this program. This program has been saturated and has run it's course.

Impossible to make money

I joined My Instant Biz in July 2009. I had researched the program thoroughly and everything I found was positive. No one seemed to have a bad word to say about it. I spent a week or so surfing considerably more than the recommended "necessary" amount before I realized that I was wasting my time, and with upgraded traffic exchange memberships, money.

Looking at the list of new members, about 15-20 were joining per day, fewer than the day in December 2008 when the program was started. These new members are divided between hundreds of surfers! It's not surprising that there were reports in the forum of people surfing for two months without getting a single subscriber. Even if the program was working properly, maybe one in twenty subscribers will become a paying trafficwave member.

The good reports of My Instant Biz are from those who may have had some success by getting in early and are trying to promote the program.

Not What It is Cracked Up To Be

I joined this program several months ago, mostly because it was free. Hey, free is a good thing. I read what Ms. Albright had to say and implemented everything she had suggested. It seems to me that I was surfing from morning until night without even one referral. I was also noticing that there were so many other people promoting this same program that it was just turning out to be a big waste of time for me. Now, to a real good salesman, he would have other means besides the traffic exchanges to promote these sales letters. I am not one of them. I think there are better programs out there that don't focus so much on the traffic exchanges to succeed. I have since quit surfing and this program. I just did not see the point anymore.

It is not worth my time

Albright has written a killer sales letter (or got it written) so that I didn't think twice to join the program. She also provides an almost clear guide to enable us to fully understand how it works.

Like Iwandell has mentioned, the mandatory program is an autoresponder named Traffic Wave. You will use the autoresponder to send your newsletters promoting the program (you can basically use the autoresponder for your own marketing efforts as well). You make money by getting referrals to join the autoresponder.

I joined the program only three weeks ago. Before I was enthusiastic to promote the program as per her instruction. She states that you can promote this program by all means necessary, but using traffic exchanges alone will give you decent results. So I started surfing and surfing. It seemed an easy job, but it really taxed my time and kept me from doing my other jobs. It was almost two weeks when I decided that it was not worth it, because so far I hadn't got a single referral. I stopped surfing since then.

Won't make you rich

I joined My Instant Biz a couple of months ago mainly because it was completely free - I loved that they didn't ask for credit card information up front - and it also claimed to be one of the few honest online business opportunities. Everything is contingent on surfing traffic exchanges, and after 3 solid weeks of surfing at least 4 hours a day and getting zero referrals, I dropped the program. Considering that I was surfing for free referrals and couldn't even get one after three weeks of following the program exactly, I decided to move on to bigger and better things. The traffic exchanges recommended by this site are so over-saturated by everyone advertising My Instant Biz, that it seems like members are only advertising to each other. It seemed like a vicious circle! I will say that I believe this is an honest business opportunity as advertised, but I honestly think the average person will have difficulty seeing results simply by following the instructions provided. If you want to make money with this, you'll probably have to think outside of the box and not rely so much on surfing.

Use Instant Biz

I to have found that the owner left several key points out of her business. It takes a lot more effort than just surfing the sites that she has you join. Also the money that you put out every month for Trafficwave doesn't always come back right away. I found that I was losing money rather than making money back. Maybe I just didn't use the system the right way but I would not hold people back from joining it.

Nothing special

A while back I joined My Instant Biz after seeing the splash page while surfing. I was very convinced that it was the ONLY solution to make lots of money on the internet. It's proclaiming that it is the "only" business online that you will make money with. It may be true that you will make money with it, but I sure didn't. When signing up, there's a lot of instructions you have follow to make sure that you receive everything to make it work. If you can't follow instructions, you are probably better off not signing up! Once you verify everything, you will start receiving emails from the site owner telling you exactly what to do. The owner stresses how important reading EVERY SINGLE email is in order to succeed. The emails are mostly about promoting. She instructs you on how to promote the site and get visitors, and which traffic exchanges to use (obviously the ones she does). Personally, I don't see anything special about My Instant Biz. It's just like any other free site that you need to promote in order to have success.

Too much "surfing" for me

The drawing card here is the FREE report. Like most other things the main focus is to get others to get the Free report and follow the "guide" after you. The mandatory program to join is Traffic Wave. This sends out your autoresponder letters to those who have shown response to your ads. The plus of this is that Margaret has already set up the letters for you. The first month in Traffic Wave is free. The second month you start paying around $17 a month if you want to continue. You get paid so much in Traffic Wave when one of your recruits continues after their free month. This can offset your monthly fee. The downside of this is if you are not a good recruiter you just keeping paying the fee every month.

To recruit or advertise your Free Report you follow her guide - go to Traffic Hoopla and Affiliate Funnel and join 12 - 20 traffic exchanges and start surfing. She says you can do it by surfing the TE's for 1 hour a day! She teaches you how to surf 6-10 sites at a time. Believe me I surfed many hours a day- which can really kill your arm & shoulder! Plus, I started having major virus problems from all the surfing sites.

She has set up a forum also, which can be helpful. But, I found it confusing some of the time because there was so much to it, it was hard to know where to look for answers. You could spend hours just reading things on the forum. You can communicate with your upline. I did get some assistant from my sponsor which I appreciated.

I was in it for 2 or 3 months. Finally got 1 recruit but since he was still in his free month I decided it wasn't worth paying another month's fee and felt I was really wasting my time surfing. If you stop and think about it, everyone else is just clicking all the sites so fast no one is really looking much at each other's sites - so what are you accomplishing?

If you are a good recruiter and love to surf all those sites - go for it. I feel there must be a better way to spend your time online and make some money!
