Name: Zero Hour Work Days
Price: $8.97 + upsells + downsells
Owners: Brendan Mace
This is a product and a system released by money making internet guru Brendan Mace. He makes the claim of being able to live the laptop lifestyle by working only 15-20 minutes a day. Let's think about this for a moment. Do you know anybody in any business offline or online who has achieved massive success only working for minutes a day?
It's a nice story and I would call Brendan a 'dream weaver'.
He goes on further to make the claim that you can earn exactly $9,259.74 per month just by putting in less than 30 minutes a day with Zero Hour Work Days. Let's see what he provides for our money.
What's It Cost?
The initial entry point comes in cheap at only $8.67. The selling doesn't stop there and he would never get to 10K a month selling products that cheap. More on that later. Here is what he provides at start up. It is a series of 8 DVDs consisting of the following:
- How To Make $9,259.74 Per Month - a look inside how Brendan make money and how you can duplicate the process.
- Where To Find The Right Resources - where to find the proper tools that will drive customers to your sales page and opt-ins.
- Tricky Ways To Get Free Traffic - you will be shown some insider tricks on how to gain free traffic.
- Best Traffic Sources an How To Get Them Free - another video presentation on getting free traffic.
- Secret to A 210% ROI - tips on how to profit from your business and earn a 210% return doing so.
- Simple Money Pages - how to create pages that attract money.
- Affiliate Promos That Print Money - how to join programs and earn money like the pros do.
- Where The Real Money Is - how to earn the most from the vast array of sources on the internet.
Who Is It For?
Brendan preys on the senses of those who are totally vulnerable and hate their 9-5 job. He asks you during the video sales pitch, “Are you ready to start living the dream lifestyle?” Hmm, ya who isn't, right? I mean everyone has a dream.
He claims the system he uses is so simple high school dropouts and the computer illiterate can succeed just by following what he has done. Man, it just sounds so easy and too good to be true. I fit all that criteria myself. Well, I've since upgraded and taken a few business, english and computer courses since dropping out.
He says the system he uses to make money is designed for anyone and all who give it a go will find success, no matter who you are or where you are in life. If you are looking for extra cash or to replace your dead end 9-5 job this will work for you.

Money Making Tip!
Are you fed up of reading and listening to unrealistic claims of making money online? Schemes like MLM, Pyramids and 'Get Rich Quick'. Catchy phrases like 'Live The Dream Lifestyle'. You too can live 'The Laptop Lifestyle'.
Let's just stop all the confusion and admit that none of that works and nearly all of what you hear and read online is bullshit. Learn how to build a real business online....
What I Didn't Like
The constant chatter about getting rich quick and the endless talk of only taking 15-20 minutes out of your day to make just less than 10K a month. It's absolutely ridiculous. I work at my online business anywhere from 60-70 hours a week. It's hard work and success does not come easy. Starting a business is hard work and takes a lot of time. Brendan is just selling you on a dream and an unrealistic expectation of a lifestyle in too short a time.
You can get to the point in life where you can work and live anywhere you want to. It's just not that easy and takes a hell of a lot more time than he claims it does.
He also uses a lot of sensational language you have to guard yourself and pocketbook against. "Whenever you get low on funds, just open your laptop and the dollar bills will start flooding in". Don't fall for this pitch.
All of this reminded me of another upsell rich program I just recently bought and reviewed. Unreal promises and tons of upsells. It's called Castaway Commissions.
What's The True Cost With Upsells?
You have to get used to the idea of having to listening to upsells. It is what affiliate marketers do. They wouldn't be doing their jobs or customers a service if they didn't try to sell you more. I have no problem with it, you as a consumer have to decide if it provides you with enough value to warrant another purchase. Brendan has 3 upsells and 3 downsells for you should you decline his first offer. They are:
Upsell #1 - $37 + $17 Downsell - How to copy and paste emails into an autoresponder.
Upsell #2 - $67 + $37 Downsell - How to design a lead capture page and a sales page. This is known as the double opt-in.
Upsell #3 - $897 + $197 Downsell - Private coaching from Brendan.
Total Cost = $259.97
Why would you pay the upsell price? You simply click NO on the offer and then yes on the downsell offer if it interests you. That is the cheapest deal for the program. Let's deduct the private coaching because you feel you can do this on your own after watching the DVDs. How much is it?
Total Cost Without A Coach = $62.97
That's actually not a bad price for this type of walk through training. It's cheap enough for most people to afford if that's all that was needed. What else would I need?
You Need Traffic
Only real customers buy products and not internet search engines. Where are your customers going to come from? Brendan buys all his traffic from two sources. Facebook Ads and Solo Ads.
He uses about 10-20 different solo ad sellers and buys clicks from them. He doesn't divulge that amount but most of the industry uses between $100-$200 a month on this traffic tactic. You have to budget for that after you purchase this program. This will end up being your biggest cost and what will eventually start to eat away at your cash flow if you aren't converting those clicks into customers.
Even if you think you have an extensive enough list, it won't convert as well as buying clicks from those with an extensive network of past paying customers. It is how a lot of these companies work.
My Final Take
Even purchasing the downsell editions and I think in a lot of cases you need it. There is not a lot of value in the $8.97 product alone. I think you need more. I won't try and scare you away from this program as I do think it can provide some real value.
I also believe that you really need to understand how affiliate marketing, email marketing and network marketing really work before you can appreciate what Brendan is trying to teach you here.
If you have never placed a Facebook Ad or created a sales page, landing page or email opt-in page, then you are going to be completely lost. This single product alone will never allow you to live a dream laptop lifestyle as advertised. Even Brendan admits you still need to buy that traffic to help get you there.
If you took the time earlier to read through how I got started online, then you know I think that Wealthy Affiliate is the #1 place to go. You can start your very own website for ZERO DOLLARS and be up and running in minutes. It's that easy and no recruiting and spending enormous wads of cash on products and people you don't understand or know. Give Wealthy Affiliate a try I think you will enjoy the community and the experience. Now, that is something I can recommend to anyone!
