Name: The Email Syndicate
Price: $27.20/month or more, with MANY upsells
Update: They have another program called the Gim System, and it is the same exact thing. They just want to try to take more peoples’ money by creating another system.
What is The Email Syndicate and How Does it Work?
The Email Syndicate is an email marketing system where you have to login to a MyInbox Pro account every day and send an email to people on a list that is provided for you. The email you send contains your affiliate link, and if someone opens your email and clicks on your link, you will earn $0.20. Hmm… The video that is provided when signing up for this systems claims that you can create an income from this. I think NOT! Allen is giving you the system for free, but if you want to have a chance at making any money with this system you are going to have to fork over some money.
Allen really created this system to promote other products that he is affiliated with Click Force Traffic, The Click Agency, and ClixSense. He used to use GVO Autoresponder, but has changed to MyInbox Pro. This means that everyone who signs up for this program gives Allen tons of money. It is mostly set up for someone else to make money, not you!
Once you sign up for the free membership and login to your account, you are taken to a dashboard that gives you 6 steps to take.
The Email Syndicate Steps
In the first step all they do is give you an introduction to what The Email Syndicate is, and they give you some pre-sell pitches. That’s it! Then at the end of the step it tells you to go to step 4 to start referring people. This makes no sense because you cannot just jump to step 4 without creating an email account and affiliate ID
. They also say you are GUARANTEED to make money in your first 30 days. However, if you do it will only be a dollar or two!
After I signed up I got an email saying I could get started for just $1, but my account was already created. I believe you can do a 30 day trail, then you have to pay the $1 after that (it’s really $1.97). But just keep reading to see everything else you will have to pay for.
The Email Syndicate used to make you set up a GVO Autoresponder account so you could automatically send emails, but they have cut all ties with them (I guess they saw right through them).
The first thing you have to do in step 2 is set up a MyInbox Pro account. After you have created the account you have to choose which plan you would like (you can get 500 – 5,000 subscribers). It also tell you NOT to choose the pay as you go plan (this I do not like). The Email Syndicate then fills your account with 500-5,000 subscribers.
I signed up for the MyInboxPro account by clicking the link below the picture, then I put in my information. It then took me straight to step 3. It says if you have not made your first months payment to MyInbox Pro then you cannot fill out the information. I have seen some MyInbox Pro reviews and apparently they lose important emails (not good).
After you are done setting up and paying for your MyInbox Pro account, you will get a Click Force Traffic ID that you will need to put in your emails that you send. They do not tell you how to get you Click Force Traffic ID, but that is the one thing you need to send the emails.
This step is just an upsell to try and get you to purchase more subscribers! You get 500 subscribers each week when you join (until you hit 5,000), but then it says you can get 1,000 subscribers each week for $77/month. My question is “Are these leads good quality leads?” Very doubtful!
If you decide not to upgrade you just go to step 4.
Note: Everything you purchase from The Email Syndicate is payed through ClickBetter, which is also what Millionaire BizPro uses (another BIG scam).
In step 4 they ask you to do 3 more things..
- Send your email. You scroll down and choose which email you want to send out to your list (they are already pre-written). After you have decided which one you want to send out, you click the SELECT THIS EMAIL button.
- Then you enter a From Name for the email, and just your first name is fine.
- Then you click the Send Button and you are done for the day!
You have to fill the email with your Click Force Traffic affiliate ID that you get from MyInbox Pro, and after you click the “Send Button” The Email Syndicate will send the email to your email list. Once the subscribers clicks on your link, you get $0.20 from Click Force Traffic.
Next you can go to step 5, which is an opportunity for you to become an affiliate of The Email Syndicate! I will also get into all of the upsells.
How Much Does The Email Syndicate Cost?
So it costs at least $27.20/month to sign up for your MyInbox Pro account through Email Syndicate (the price gets higher for more subscribers, but you can only get up to 5,000). You can choose to do the $77/month to get more leads in step 3, and then they offer you these upsells. They used to be cheaper, but for some reason have raised their prices (greedy much?).
- Co-Op Package 1 – $55 – You get 100 visitors to your referral link, and 200 new subscribers added to your list.
- Co-Op Package 2 – $99 – You get 300 visitors to
your referral link, and 600 new subscribers added to your list.
- Co-Op Package 3 – $249 – You get 500 visitors to your referral link, and 1000 new subscribers added to your list.
- Co-Op Package 4 – $497 – You get 1000 visitors to your referral link, and 2000 new subscribers added to your list.
There are also NO REFUNDS if you purchase these packages.
Let’s break this down. Say you get all the packages and spend about $600. You will get a lot of subscribers (3800) and clicks (1900), but what happens after that? If only 500-1000 people actually click on your links and don’t get annoyed with your emails, then you will make about $200.
You would have to keep buying clicks and adding subscribers, but you will NEVER make as much as you spend. Isn’t that the goal of owning a business, to make more than you spend?
This is just another PPC campaign where you are not in control of your own business! Next we are going to get into the final step, step 6.
All they want to you to do in step 6 is sign up for a MyInbox Pro account. It has the same directions that step 2 does. However, this time they want you to send them your username and password so they can add all of the subscribers you have had in the past 30 days on to your account. I think this is for people that have been members for a while, and it is to show them how to create an account since they dropped GVO autoresponder.
The Email Syndicate Affiliate Program
After you have purchased all of these clicks and visitors from the Co-Op Packages, they then ask you to purchase more from The Click Agency or from ClixSense to build your referrals more.
You can get referrals to join The Email Syndicate (after they click on your link and join), and you get $0.10 every time one of your referrals purchases an upgrade. You get a little more money, but it’s not life changing.
You also get $30 for each member you refer every month, depending on the affiliate package you purchase (the commission changes). They make this seem WAY easier than it actually is to get referrals, do not fall for it!
So how much does it cost?
So this supposedly FREE system requires you to spend 1000’s of dollars to make money now.
The Earning Disclaimer
There are some red flags when it comes to reading the fineprint. Here are some excerpts of The Email Syndicate Earnings Disclaimer…

So if you do not make money with The Email Syndicate, too bad. They have themselves covered, and they do not care about you!
I think The Email Syndicate is a VERY complicated system. It seems they are trying to make it better but it is just confusing. It was created to make lazy people think they can make money online just by sending easy emails every day. In my experience it takes work an time to get QUALITY leads. In my opinion, the leads they give you to put on your list are not very good leads and most likely will not care about clicking on your link.
Another thing I do not like is that you will be scamming others, just like you! There is no way I would put any of my hard earned money into this system.
