    Hi Richard - Ive just started 5 days ago. Its the first IM project Ive tired and I must say ITS EASY. Although there should be more explaining on TESS behalf for people who are not so computer literate.

    After five days I have spent $130AU on advertising (too much) and only recieved 250 google clicks. Im currently trying to find out tips with google adwords.

    Ive also spent $110USD for 1 year domain.

    So far ive earned $125USD from TISSA, $8.90USD from Reunion and $19.99 from HDPUBLISHING.

    So after 5 days Ive spent $240AUD and earned $224AUD.

    I think this is really good considering Ive paid for a year domian name and only 5 days into the project. Its very easy to set up, and you just have to be creative with your site name and advertising, ie bloggs ectect - Im still working this out myself.

    I know this is bugger all but for me its awsome since its money for nothing. With great advertising / getting people to use your search engine I think it will have great income potiental.

    I just signed up for this and I have to say I'm confused. They guarantee $125 to your account within 24 hours but I don't see anything and I haven't spent any money because I didn't know you had to advertise for yourself. I put in a ticket asking what exactly I need to do and I am waiting for a response

      The instructions state u wont get any money from Tissa until u have $200 banked there. You do however get paid from ClickBank and adsense. You dont have to advertise the search engine urself but if u dont you wont make anything from it.

      I signed up for it in September thinking I could monetize an ezine I do to a paricular list. So far, it has been three months, and to be honest, I have not sent the offer out yet to the list. I've just let it sit there.

      I did spend 2 months paying for Tissa's 100% thing - 29 a month I think it was. I did not do another thing as far as advertising, just relied on whatever she says she does for us, which I think is piggyback on her adwords campaign.

      Bottom line, 3 months, one sale from her network. I have spent the cost of the domain and the hosting (which I am using for some other domains now as well, so that is not so bad) and her setup fee and to be at 100% and I have made one sale. Spent about $150+ so far to make $20.

      All that said, I do actually think the concept is good and if you plan to invest some time in it, it may be worth while. The one big thing that I have not gotten around to (which I why I have not sent it to my list yet) is that I really believe the site needs to be upgraded from what she supplies. I know she says you dont need to do this, but if you look at her sites, they have video and a bunch of other great stuff that is not provided to you. You can change the site as you see fit, just make sure you dont mess up the coding to the searches.

      I am now keeping it without paying the extra monthly fee - have not made a single penny since I started doing that - and will eventually get the siet to the way I want it and then will use it as I initially intended.

    I joined this 10 days ago. It's not MLM. You earn from different affiliate programs when people perform searches and then opt to purchase a background check. When they register for a free search they are routed through Reunion.com which is a pay per lead program. That's where you make most of you money.

    I've spent $24 in PPC and have earned $28 through Reunion and some change from adsense. I can see where this program could be profitable since some people who sign up at Reunion will likely upgrade their memberships.

    I'm going to give it a try for a few months and see how it works out. So far though it is looking good.

    Of course with any PPC campaign you have to monitor what you're doing or you can end up out a lot of money with nothing to show for it.

        See my reply to JoAnne above. You just have to email Tissa and ask him to stop auto-updating your index.htm page. Changing it is just basic HTML. Mine is still pretty basic though an improvement on the default look. I believe this is Tissa's page: Acme People Searches :: Main page I'll probably 'borrow' some of that page's design elements and re-do my homepage before long.

          Yo, I joined about 3 months ago and have yet to make a profit. However, once your in you realise that this is a product that should be approached as a business rather than an immediate cash cow, as Tissa will tell you, it needs time to grow.

          By that I mean you need to build your list that Tissa sends responder emails to for a year. It’s difficult to monitor how many people are on the list but if you ask Tissa he'll tell you. Also the amounts of leads you've attained with reunion might give you an idea.

          One of the reasons that I haven't yet turned a profit is because I started this as a complete Newbie. So I spent a fair amount of cash on useless tools at the start thinking I could take shortcuts.

          Also, I didn't utilize all of the income streams. Its only in the last couple of weeks I’ve thought about promoting the referrals etc, which incorporates the building of your GDI downline, but I till haven't signed up for GDI yet, I’m hosting with start logic but GDI is on my agenda cause it sounds like a fantastic opportunity.

          I also bought beating adwords and have refined my adwords strategy and now I’m spending about 40% less and getting almost twice the traffic. I also tampered with my adcopy which seems to have increased the amount of leads I’m converting through reunion.

          I didn't want to promote the product unless I was sure people could profit from it. And since I’ve had better fortunes recently and have read some of the success stories of the other guys I think it's time to step up the promotion.

          It's a great product. True, there have been some reviews where people are completely unsatisfied with their experience with the program but as far as I’ve seen, for every bad review, there are ten good ones.

          My next stumbling block is working out how I’m going to promote the program, because I don't think it will be profitable or worthwhile using google adwords because for one. Google charges silly money for the keywords associated with moneymaking opportunities and affiliate marketing. Secondly, when you search for it in google, I can't see a lot of the other guys using google adwords to promote it.

          I've found loads of people with their own website landing pages (which I have no experience of making as of yet), a few articles (I’ve written 1 so far), and a lot of blogging which I also don't know a lot about.

          Phew, my 'to do' list gets longer haha.

          However, for anyone who has a relative grip on PPC, article writing etc then this program is for you. Tissa's support is quality too.

          It's been a good stepping-stone for me

          Sorry for the really long post guys haha.

          Hey Everyone,

          I read a lot on the forum but don't really post much. I probably should post more.

          I started with Acme People Search about 4 months in to my affiliate marketing career (if you could call it that). It was the first business that I started earning money with right away.

          I focus primarily on the referral side of the business. I began generating commissions right away and I have made over $2000 just in referral commissions alone. I have made a little on the PPC side, but I have found that using free traffic generating methods to drive people to my referral page and earning referral bonuses has been the easiest and steadiest way to make money.

          I have to be honest, I don't really spend a whole lot of time on this, maybe making a video every now and then and I have been consistently earning $300-$400 month in referral bonuses.

          Tissa is a great guy and he is now offering live Training Webinars to answer questions. I highly recommend this program and I do whatever I can to help my affiliates when they join. If you are interested PM me or email me and I will help you with your search engine (whether you are one of my referrals or not). You can hit me on AIM at WWNBCorp.

        I help my prospects and downline by giving away 2 FREE ebooks on internet marketing. Also, my blog explains the program in detail with screen shots of the money I have made. The KEY as with any affiliate program is to get TARGETED PROSPECTS. Most people are lazy and don't follow thru.
        Well done! You are doing great so far with the program. I joined about a month ago.

        Some observations I have made:
        1. As the leads come through the program, you can't get them through your own autoresponder. I am interested in your comment about assisting your downline. Do you contact each one manually? Teaching your downline is really the way to go, but then you also have to teach them to do the same or they'll just give up...
        2. The search engine is limited to USA.
        3. For the money I have spent on advertising and with the terms of Tissa's commission schedule, thus far I am out of pocket. I have 19 in my downline, have $90 in pending affiliate commission, $9.90 for Reunion and have spent $400 ppc and content on Google.:confused:
        4. There is no way you can edit your own site and ad extra content eg articles, back links. I believe this is restrictive.
        What I plan to do is write articles on the subject, get free advertising by this and link to my sites. See how I go with this...:rolleyes:

        Cheers

    Hi, JoAnn
    You can use the contact form and ask Tissa to not auto update your site. You can then edit it yourself. I have made some changes to mine and they don't get overwritten. Just be sure to back up the original because they won't help you if edit your own page and mess things up.

    I've only focused on getting people to use the free people search using PPC. So far my Reunion commissions are just a little above my AdWords spend so my advertising it not costing anything. But no one has upgraded yet - though I'm sure some people will.

    I haven't focused on trying to get affiliates yet.

    Hi All,

    I've been with this program for about 2 months now and do believe that the money is to be made with referals. To advertise on google you will have to be very astute as the competition is very fierce, but get this right and the reward can be very rewarding.

    I'm upto $400 in referal commissions at the moment, but the biggest gain for me is my GDI downline. I think this is the main point of the system. You will see Tissa Godavitarne at the top of the GDI leaderboard week after week.

    I don't think this is for the newbie, but if you are a clever marketer then there could be a few bucks in this for you.

    All the best, Tony

      Well I'm looking for advice from anyone about this program, I paid for it four days ago and am still stuck at 65 percent. I have submitted help ticket after help ticket with no response. I left messages at his office, and emailed him and have gotten no response as to why I haven't gotten 100 percent yet or why I haven't gotten a single hit to my site or anything! Since there are so many of you on here that have good things to say about affilitize.com please tell me how in the world you get some decent customer service from this company? If it's a legitimate company then I am willing to work hard to make the money, but so far I have paid and am getting absolutely nothing except a website that does nothing. I'm out what forty bucks so far?

    I have been using Tissa's search engine for around 6 months now. It has had some ups and downs due to my learning curve in the beginning, but for the overall I would recommend this system to anyone who is willing to work and grow this business.

    The referrals in my opinion is one of the best money makers of this system. Tissa's payment plus your downline at GDI is a win win.

    My video currently has pos. #2 #5 #8 on the 1st page in Google for the keyword phrase people locator pro. So that is proof that isn't that hard to get some real free traffic from this system.

    I have spoke to Tissa personally and he is a heck of a nice guy, and very helpful, and easy to communicate with.

    This was my first IM project and it has been well worth the effort in my humble opinion.

    Are you ok Net_Lord?

    i have been using Acme people search for my main IM program since I started IM in Dec 08. So far so good, though my profits arent great (approx $50-100 per month) I think this is due to my Poor P P C skills.

    NET-LORD, I too have submitted 2 support tickets both now 2 weeks old and no reply, very disapointed as one is very urgent, usaully they reply very quick im not sure what is happening, but it is annoying.

      As posted elsewhere: I think it is going to be tough for anyone to promote 'their' "people search" site using adwords. There will be thousands of affiliates all advertising links to identical cookie cutter sites in what is already a very competitive market in terms of keyword costs. Your quality score for your landing page is going to be very low (sending your costs per click even higher) as Google will penalise you for having a cookie cutter landing page. This is advertised as an opportunity for newbies but newbies will get burned using adwords if they don't know what they are doing!

      You also don't own your own "people search engine" just a carbon copy of one (amongst thousands of others). You don't control the autoresponder either.

      If you build your own website and build your own brand and content and own your own list and control your own autoresponder then you are building YOUR business.
      But with Acme People search you are building SOMEBODY ELSES business.

      Looking at Acme Peoples stats - the amounts earned and the number of people earning them are very small. You also need to factor in the cost of earning the payments (Google adwords and other promotion methods). Once you deduct the costs the profit remaining MAY be very small or none at all.

      Eg: See https://acme-people-search.com/125.php
      So on the last payment run (17th Feb) only 30 people earned enough to get paid (out of what must be thousands of affiliates as the affiliate-programs-rock.com adwords ad is everywhere) and most of them earned around $200 ish - but less the $125 prepayment in some cases if not all) and BEFORE any costs (Google adwords advertising, domain name, hosting etc).

      Tissa Godavitarne is making money from this, however a lot of that is from hosting commissions, gdi downline and domain sale payments, other affiliate commissions (Beating adwords, PPC Classroom etc)

        Tissa here. Glad to hear of the success many of you are having with my program :-) Stay tuned for more cool features, like more ingredients in my "GDI Secret Sign-up Sauce". (Click on the GDI link within your account...)

        AffiliateMax, thanks for sharing your opinions. I found it interesting that you said this:

        Also see what Scott Smith had to say over at program-review.com. He documented his experiences using AdWords to promote his people search site. Interesting read.

        Don't get me wrong AffiliateMax; I agree with you fully that newbies can get burned using AdWords if they don't know what they are doing. But that's not unique to my program; that applies to anyone who is learning how to use AdWords to promote any product. All the more reason to learn and educate oneself using the resources in your search engine's back office. Remember folks, you have to learn to earn.

        About these statements of yours:

        How is that different from any other affiliate program? If you promote a popular ClickBank product for example, your hoplink lands on the identical page that thousands of other affiliates are promoting. That doesn't mean there aren't any successful ClickBank affiliates. It means successful affiliates have found ways to distinguish themselves, like preselling via a review site, blog, etc.

        I think you miss the point here:

        I agree 100% - but then that's no longer affiliate marketing; that's building your own brand and business. One of the reasons people are attracted to affiliate programs is precisely because they DON'T have to build an entire business on their own. That's the beauty of affiliate marketing: Once you've perfected your marketing, you can make a lot of money without spending a lot of time at it. That's usually not the case when you grow your own business from the ground up.

        I don't think you read that payments page closely enough:

        Not quite. As mentioned on that page, those are the 125 MOST RECENT payments that included the guaranteed commission of $125. Far more than 30 people were paid that day, but they don't appear on the list because they were paid their $125 a while ago. In fact, so far I've paid my affiliates $175,845.00 in commissions, of which $31,500.00 was the guaranteed commission of at least $125. Not sure what you mean by "less the $125 prepayment"; I don't deduct $125 from my users - I give them $125 :-) And how would you know what expenses other folks incur to earn their commissions? The reality is, most users who earn the guaranteed commissions DON'T pay for AdWords advertising - they use free traffic methods (like blogs, Squidoo lenses, YouTube videos, articles, Facebook, Twitter etc.)

        Ya, so? Aren't I entitled to make money with the same program I'm providing to others so they can make money? (By the way, I won a Segway from PPC Classroom, and anyone who stops by my office during my weekly meet-and-greets gets to ride it ;-)

        This GDI horse has been beaten to death in countless forum threads over the years. Of course there are much cheaper places to register domain names and host Web sites. If that's all you need, then you should definitely go to a place like namecheap.com. I'd be the first one to tell you that. But if you want a residual income opportunity while offering those same services, then go with GDI. Just depends on your objectives.

        Again, not true, and I'm proof: GDI has been around since 2000, but I only joined GDI in August of 2008. So as you can imagine, there are a LOT of people above me. Yet I've been able to climb to the top of the GDI Leaderboard in a few months, along with many of my users. (If you're in GDI, you'll recognize my name :-) All you need is a good system to grow your downline, which is exactly what my free referral program offers.

        You're absolutely right. Lately it has taken MUCH longer than usual to reply to support tickets. It has been unacceptable, and I apologize. With all the success stories, people have been signing up in record numbers, and frankly it's been more than Trish and I can handle. The good news however is that I will be holding near-daily Webinars (with phone support) starting next week. That will make a huge difference in terms of getting timely answers, straight from the horse's mouth - me! (And Risha222, I just updated all the Display Rates so you should be at 100% now :-)

          It's affiliate marketing as I know it and so do many others who have been earning a part time and full time living from affiliate programs. Many people who promote affiliate programs do so by building a website (beyond a one page review or a landing page) and in doing so create a brand. If they are any good they become a useful source of information on topic x and people associate that with their website which is their 'brand'. This can be on any scale from a little niche website/blog about caring for your goldfish to a massive voucher code or cashback site. It's all still affiliate marketing - links from affiliate networks or in house affiliate programs from your site/s to merchants in exchange for a commission. Or as Commission Junction defines it: an affiliate is "an independent party, or Web site, that promotes the products or services of an advertiser in exchange for a commission".

            Tissa here. Concerning my Super Affiliate Switch, iron1 is correct about this:

            But I also agree 100% with newbeginnings about this:

            Though I personally tend to give people more credit than this:

            I certainly hope no one will do that! So just for the record: DON'T sign up for my Super Affiliate Switch unless you can afford it AND you understand what it takes to be a Super Affiliate!

            About this, I agree 100% again:

            Originally Posted by AffiliateMax

            Absolutely - my Super Affiliate Switch is not the only way to earn hosting commissions. It's just a method that has worked well for me (over $700,000 in hosting commissions last year) and I know it will work well for other super affiliates. But if anyone feels they could be just as successful using another approach, I say go for it. To each his (or her) own.

            FYI folks: As promised, I'm now holding free Webinars where you can talk with me personally and ask questions about my program (I just finished a two hour Webinar this Sunday afternoon). I know a lot of you haven't received timely replies to your support tickets due to the record growth - I apologize for that. Trish is working through the support tickets as quickly as she can, and last week alone I hosted 20 hours of free Webinars, with more to come. To attend a Webinar, just click on the "Contact Tissa" link in your search engine's back office.

            Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

          Tissa here. Glad to hear of the success many of you are having with my program :-) Stay tuned for more cool features, like more ingredients in my "GDI Secret Sign-up Sauce". (Click on the GDI link within your account...)

          AffiliateMax, thanks for sharing your opinions. I found it interesting that you said this:



          While Kitejunkiee said this:



          Also see what Scott Smith had to say over at program-review.com. He documented his experiences using AdWords to promote his people search site. Interesting read.

          Don't get me wrong AffiliateMax; I agree with you fully that newbies can get burned using AdWords if they don't know what they are doing. But that's not unique to my program; that applies to anyone who is learning how to use AdWords to promote any product. All the more reason to learn and educate oneself using the resources in your search engine's back office. Remember folks, you have to learn to earn.

          About these statements of yours:



          How is that different from any other affiliate program? If you promote a popular ClickBank product for example, your hoplink lands on the identical page that thousands of other affiliates are promoting. That doesn't mean there aren't any successful ClickBank affiliates. It means successful affiliates have found ways to distinguish themselves, like preselling via a review site, blog, etc.

          I think you miss the point here:



          I agree 100% - but then that's no longer affiliate marketing; that's building your own brand and business. One of the reasons people are attracted to affiliate programs is precisely because they DON'T have to build an entire business on their own. That's the beauty of affiliate marketing: Once you've perfected your marketing, you can make a lot of money without spending a lot of time at it. That's usually not the case when you grow your own business from the ground up.

          I don't think you read that payments page closely enough:



          Not quite. As mentioned on that page, those are the 125 MOST RECENT payments that included the guaranteed commission of $125. Far more than 30 people were paid that day, but they don't appear on the list because they were paid their $125 a while ago. In fact, so far I've paid my affiliates $175,845.00 in commissions, of which $31,500.00 was the guaranteed commission of at least $125. Not sure what you mean by "less the $125 prepayment"; I don't deduct $125 from my users - I give them $125 :-) And how would you know what expenses other folks incur to earn their commissions? The reality is, most users who earn the guaranteed commissions DON'T pay for AdWords advertising - they use free traffic methods (like blogs, Squidoo lenses, YouTube videos, articles, Facebook, Twitter etc.)



          Ya, so? Aren't I entitled to make money with the same program I'm providing to others so they can make money? (By the way, I won a Segway from PPC Classroom, and anyone who stops by my office during my weekly meet-and-greets gets to ride it ;-)



          This GDI horse has been beaten to death in countless forum threads over the years. Of course there are much cheaper places to register domain names and host Web sites. If that's all you need, then you should definitely go to a place like namecheap.com. I'd be the first one to tell you that. But if you want a residual income opportunity while offering those same services, then go with GDI. Just depends on your objectives.



          Again, not true, and I'm proof: GDI has been around since 2000, but I only joined GDI in August of 2008. So as you can imagine, there are a LOT of people above me. Yet I've been able to climb to the top of the GDI Leaderboard in a few months, along with many of my users. (If you're in GDI, you'll recognize my name :-) All you need is a good system to grow your downline, which is exactly what my free referral program offers.

          I also want to take this opportunity to respond to Risha222:

          Reunion would never let me sign up,for 15,000 reasons so I was never able to get this going. Did anyone else have the same problem? I read many of the prior posts but could not read all of them. Thanks.

    Hi everyone,

    For myself, I received yesturday, another invitation from Tissa which is a deal that comes just after I was charged by GDI, after my trial.

    He wanted to see if I qualify to make 7xx xxx.00$. By acting as fast as possible, he would see my real desire.

    When I arrived to the page, I had to buy google cash detective for...

    I keep trying for the 2X days left but, I found another way to do business with adwords. An idea I found reading an ebook.

    I'm actually redesigning my webpage slowly but surely. I have a blog...

And, that really doesn't even matter if you can't get "good" referrals. Why not just have that as an option without buying GCD 2??

        GCD 2 is incredible? Where's the proof? Got any screenshots of your millions using it? Or are you a sucker like everyone else desperate to get rich quick? GCD 2 is a waste of time. A better use of time would be to actually learn Adwords, not clone ads.

        Activate the switch = Tissa gets richer, you may make a bit more and get a lot more frustrated.

        GCD 2 has many glitches and isn't getting many good reviews.

        Good luck!
        You are not being forced to do anything, and it is only an option!

        Did you notice the Keyword in that statement "Super Affiliate Switch", "For 'Super Affiliates' ONLY ' Tissa let's you know that real clearly I think. I'm guessing you bought this and failed at it, or decided that it was too hard or too expensive, or maybe just another p.o.s. scheme. I totally understand that. But if you haven't used this product personally...well all I can say is you might not think it's a such waste of time. On the other hand if you have and you feel that way, that's a good heads up for other warriors and IM'ers looking for new software. Opinions vary!

        Millions? Screenshots? Surely you have read some of the many, many threads here about how easy it is to use a simple java script to fake that stuff, well maybe you haven't.

        You are absolutely right about "Number #1 key is education"

        Thanks for your opinion!

      "to flip the 'Super Affiliate' Switch for YOUR account, a one-time, non-refundable setup fee of $995 applies, plus a subscription fee of $495/month".

      That's a lot of money for the chance to earn web hosting affiliate commissions, you could drive a lot of traffic to the web host yourself if you spent the $995 plus $495 per month on ppc traffic instead.

    Hey there,

    I see I'm a little late to contribute to this thread but I think its great that some of you are having a good time with the ACME People Search business.

    I am relatively new to internet marketing but getting involved with ACME People Search has given me the motivation to actually start learning and researching how to be successful at it. Personally ACME People Search has worked great for me, but I feel I have put a considerable amount of effort in (around my day job) to make this work for me. I strongly believe that if you think you can signup and do nothing and the money will roll in... you're 100% mistaken. But if you are willing to put in a little effort and learn to market your search engine (its not that hard) or even just join one of the FREE webinars that Tissa hosts you will certainly make money with ACME People Search.

    What really makes the business so unique is the Tissa just puts himself out there to support people. I know some people have been moaning how long it has taken for him to reply to support tickets, but its only because of the sheer volume of affiliates signing up. If you have a query, I strongly suggest you join a free webinar where Tissa will answer all your questions... they really are great. Even if you havent signed up yet you can still join a webinar and find out more.

    After that feel free to visit my blog and I'll be happy to guide you to replicate my success. Take a look and make your own mind up.

    Laters

    Brad

    Yes I hooked up with Tissa, and I'm not real happy with his tactics. He started of real good and quickly slid down hill. He doesn't tell you, that you have to jump through a bunch of hoops up front. You have to sign up with GDI=Global Domains International. This is nothing more than a repackaged MLM where you make your money on referrals. They don't actually have a product to sell. In my view that's like building a business built out of a house of cards. You get a 7 day free trial, then you have to pay $10.00 a month for your web hosting service. I know people that are claiming to be making money with it, but for how long?

    Next you have to hook up with HD Publishing who runs NetDetective, which turns out to be a scam, because they make big promises they can't deliver on, if you sign up for their service. When you try to get your money back, they put you through a big rigamarole. Do you want to sell a bogus service?

    Next is you have to sign up with MyLife.com, and I haven't done any research on them yet, so I have no comment on them.

    When you get to the 3rd step, you find out that FREE isn't really FREE. He'll do the advertising for you, for up to 60 days, but after that, it's $29.95 a month. That might actually be a good deal, if you're taking in more money than you're putting out, but for me that remains to be seen.

    I'm still checking this all out, so I'll try to keep you posted when I find out more. That guy in Oz that paid $110.00 for a one year Domain registration got ripped bad, REALLY bad! He shouldn't have paid more than about $13.95 USD.

      I have been with Tissa for over a year now. I do not understand what tactics you are referring too. You have 3 steps to complete with his program if you choose to have your display rate at 100% for your Affiliate ID's for MyLife, HD Publishing & Clickbank.

      You are not required to sign up for GDI. They do have a product to sell...its called domain names and hosting. As far as the MLM aspect...yes they do share their revenue with you for the people you sign up with GDI. There are no MLM qualifications though. You get $1 Residual Income for everyone that signs up under your ID. Plus they have an amazing Bonus program. GDI is a Legitimate Online Biz. They have been in business since 1999 and have never been late on a single payment to their affiliates. GDI is more like building your online business on a stable foundation not a house of cards as they have already proven themselves and only get stronger.

      How is HD Publishing a Scam? It is 100% Free to sign up to be an Affiliate for them.

      There is plenty of Evidence and Testimonials from Many Affiliates that make money online with Tissa and GDI. This is the best business online and Tissa does several webinars weekly to train everyone.

      Tissa has been Involved with Affiliate Marketing for 10 years. He knows this business in and out. You can verify all his claims and do all the research on him and you will find out he is for real. He is not some fake guru that hides behind false claims. He is here to help all his affiliates and help everyone make money online.

      Alex.....I bet you made a Guaranteed $125 Commission. Also, Did you attend any of the webinars or promote any of the sites Tissa gave to you? Did you do any work at all? If you want your money to work for you then join a Huge Risk High Yield Investment Program that pays you 12% a day where you wire your money to some offshore account run by someone who really wants to just take your money

      By the way....Tissa does Guarantee YOU a Free $125 Commission within 24 hours of him starting your Free PPC advertsing to your search engine.

      If you want to collect that Free $125 Commission then you are required to make $75 dollars of your own. Just join his webinars and he will show you how to do this. Seriously....you only have to make $75 dollars to be paid $200 dollars. That is $125 dollars of Free Money no matter how you slice it.

          Hi Alex,

          Tissa here. If you weren't paid the guaranteed $125 commission it's because you never reached the $200 minimum payout threshold, like these folks did: acme-people-search.com/125.php

          I don't provide email or phone support, but you're right about slow replies to support tickets. It's unacceptable and I don't blame you for being pissed off. I would be too. The program has become more popular than I ever imagined, and I've had a hard time keeping up with the increased support requests. I've started doing Webinars so users can talk with me personally, and soon I'll be rolling out a forum and hiring an Affiliate Manager as well. So at least help is on the way.

          I know you said you canceled your subscription, but if you waited past the free 30-day trial, let me know and I'll refund your $29.95 as a courtesy. Just post your search engine username here. Sorry for your frustration.

            Tissa,
            My question would be - what do people get for the $29.95/mo. subscription? If you actually provided some type of value there it would be worthwhile and the rest of the system would work properly.

            After 3 months (first one's free) I can see NO traffic and no sales. I understand that I can do promotion myself but if the person who designed the system takes my $30 a month and can't even provide enough traffic for me to make that much back it doesn't build my confidence in the business model.

            Multiple requests for a refund fall on deaf ears.

              Hello dlmartin,

              The membership payment is for three things called the Tissa Trio which are:
              1) 100% Display rate for your Search Engine - meaning you will get the credit each time when ppl get search results from your search engine. If your display rate is 65%, then not always your affiliate links are shown in your search engine, so u will be missing out on some commissions.

              2) Full Access to Tissa' s GDI "Secret" Sign-up Sauce Ingredients - meaning if u turn it on, your referrals on step 2 will get only GDI as a hosting company. That can result in more GDI sign ups for u.

              3) Your "Super Affiliate Switch offered as a FREE BONUS - after u qualify for your Super Affiliate switch to be flipped, you will be able to put in the Hostgator ID at Add/Edit ID tab to get the massive commissions from Hostgator.

              Promoting the search engine isn't the only way to make money with Acme program (currenty there are 7 income streams, but in the near future there will be implemented another one). You still have GDI residual income stream, and your 3 referral links, to promote the bussiness oportunity.

              The Step 3 payment is optinal, you can cancel it within 30 days after sign up. Well its better u spend those 29.95$ on learning how to earn at Whealthy affiliate, also there a dozen of free marketing methods that u can use to promote your referral links and your search engine.

              You gotta risk it to get the biscuit!

              Have a great evening,

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to let everybody know that I too am part of this great program.

    It is the most simple thing I have ever done on line.

    I am averaging $600 per month across the program and have only been involved for a short while.

    I generally get 5 complete sign ups per day using a very simple process. It is not ppc and costs on average $5 per month to advertise. Plus I get to build MY list at the same time.

    If anybody is interested on how I do this please feel free to send me a pm
    and I will show you how easy this is and share my secret.

    To all your success

    Scott

    I signed up as well, and was discouraged as soon as I found I was required to buy their hosting, I have my own hosting, am tech savvy enough that Im not gonna pay for another host. I would say that you are not going to make a living with this... and not sure if it really worth trying to create an income stream from it... but... im going to check this out anyway, and see what I can get out of it woithout buying the hosting (.i.e clickbank royalties, etc...) and will report back...

      Hey Howard,

      Step 2 (where you sign up for Web hosting) is optional. If you decide to sign up for hosting, whoever referred you gets the hosting commission - that's one of the income streams built into the program. Just like you'd get the hosting commission if you referred someone. So whether you already have hosting elsewhere isn't really the point. No different than ClickBank paying you a commission for referring a sale. Like any income opportunity out there, how successful you are depends on your ability to advertise it. I and many others are making a pretty good living with it but it's not for everyone. If you have any questions, feel free to attend the Webinars where you can talk with me personally.

Maybe one of the reason why I don't get anything is focused...I haven't focused on it and didn't do a single thing since then. So I think it's time to act! I envy those people. I don't know but I hope this one will work...I wrote an article about ACME people search a couple of days ago and starts submitting it to different article directories online linking to my blog and to my affiliate site...I also submitted my blog and my affiliate site to Google, Yahoo, MSN and other search engines. Well, let's wait and see!
      Even though you have already invested in the program, you may want to try and find something that interests you, something you can get excited about.

      Success will come easier if you believe in your product and it doesn't sound like this is your "thing."
      I could be wrong, and if I am I apologize.

      I signed up for this program a while back. When I realized I would have to buy another host (GDI), and pay for a monthly subscription, just to be able to participate, I said goodbye. (I already had a HostGator acct)

      The market is bloated with "people finders" and the marketing costs to ...
      Maybe see some profit was too steep. It is also not a very good vehicle for advertising, as any related niches are bloated as well.

      My $$ are best spent elsewhere.

      My only costs were a domain name which I parked. It has paid for itself.

        don't know how I missed this, but I didn't realize that I will be charged $29 / month.
        as soon as my paypal paid this subscription automatically, I cancel the subscription.
        I tried to contact tissa and ask for a refund, but no answer, and it's been months..
        I read in the previous post that Alex could get a refund. does anyone know how to get a refund from Tissa?

        Yes, money CAN buy happiness IF you know where to spend it.

          I am have been with Tissa's program for about a year and it is totally legit. I have made commissions through Clickbank, HD Publishing, MyLife.com, Adsense, but mainly through referral bonuses from Tissa's affiliate program.

          My question is this, how could you not know that you would be charged $29.95 a month. When you sign up for the subscription through PayPal it clearly states, "Free for 30 Days, then $29.95 a month".

          Here is what I have found from many people posting questions here, on my site, phone calls, etc., many people simply do not understand what they are joining or promoting.

          It clearly states in the back office of Acme People Search what the $29.95 a month is for.

          This really is an awesome program and Tissa keeps making it better. He created his own forum (not as good as this one) where affiliates are sharing all kinds of great info on how to make more money with Acme People Search and affiliate marketing in general.

          Take care all.

    I test many programs to make recommendations to my clients...I tried his program..I requested a refund 7x and to no avail. I would be careful, study the fine print before investing your hard earned money on his program. Art

    This is easily the best program online. Tissa has added GVO as the eighth income stream. I get paid from all income streams. Tissa holds 3 webinars weekly and one meet and greet at his office in Virginia for those who can go and meet him personally.

    I met Tissa in Vegas at the PPC Classroom event in May. Tissa is classy and truly cares about his affiliates. His system just keeps getting better. The only thing wrong is people just do not know how to learn how to earn. While that is implemented in his training also many people just do not take action and they blame the system.

    I suggest everyone join Tissa Godavitarne today.

    Hm...well I did try the Tissa Acme program, unfortunately it wasn't to my style. Although, according to some of the posts here in this thread, I suppose it works for some people, just not for me.

    Hi everyone, I joined Acme people search last month. I mean you really have to learn to earn. It's not going to come overnight. Once you maKE your first sale, then you should be on a roll.
