Social Commissions Review: Too many Red Flags

social commission review scam image

Social Commissions is a program that is sold by a young guy named Adrian Morrison.

It’s a system that is based on Affiliate Marketing principles that are applied on a high traffic site called Plenty of Fish (one of the top worlds dating websites).

For those of you who don’t know about affiliate marketing, it’s a great online marketing method where you can promote a product or service for a commission.

Once someone clicks on your affiliate banner or link and buys the product, you receive a commission for the sale.

The concept of Social Commissions is pretty innovative, but should you use this product?

Product Name: Social Commissions

Product Type: Affiliate Marketing Training

Creator: Adrian Morrison

Price: $49 to start with tons of up-sells before you reach the members area.

Best For: Nobody in my opinion.

Rating: 10/100

Summary: Social Commissions is some pretty shabby training for the price. You’re basically taught how to market products on Plenty of Fish. Lots of up-sells, little value. Avoid!

Recommended: No

Social Commissions Screams Online Scam:

When you go to the Social Commissions website, it completely feels like an infomercial that you just can’t escape.

Have you ever gone to a web infomercial where you can’t press pause? Or when you try to leave, you get popup signs with a last minute sales pitch like the one below.

“Now, I can have 5 Free Websites if I sign up for the Social Commissions training program.”

This is the experience you’ll have when viewing the Social Commissions website.

There is no About Section, or anything that you can read to better understand how the Social Commissions program is going to teach you their affiliate marketing techniques.

The Social Commissions infomercial is all about how easy it is to make 3 – 4 hundred dollars per hour using their program.

There is little value in the video and no real insight into what the product is about. He’s just targeting inexperienced online marketers, tempting them through various marketing strategies.

Haven’t seen this video? It goes like…

Adrian Morrison starts talking about his journey as a minimum wage worker to now being a wealthy online entrepreneur.

He claims he makes 10 – 25 thousand dollars/month using his simplified affiliate marketing system.

And now, out of the goodness of his heart, he is sharing this information to only a limited number of new clients.

And if you react to this limited time offer, you can be part of the club.

This template for online business products is so over-used I’m surprised anyone still buys these courses. I guess everyone loves a good rag-to-riches story!

This product does have quite a few red-flags in common with known scams.

Anytime an educational program instills a sense of urgency upon you to react and buy the program, so that you don’t miss out on the incredible opportunity, signals that you’ve got a scam on your hands.

A screenshot from Social Commissions saying he'll bribe you to invest in your future.

OH, he is also limiting this program to so many people so that his servers won’t go down. He is clearly selling a system, and the game in sales is numbers.

I’m sure nothing would make Mr Morrison happier than to have 1000’s of people per day pay $47 for his Social Commissions program.

He’s playing off of people’s emotions to make easy money versus thinking logically about the program.

Or Is Social Commissions Bad Marketing?

On the other hand, some marketers assume this is the type of template you need to follow to create a successful sales video.

Sometimes – rarely but sometimes – there is a legitimate, high-value, course at the end of a fishy-looking sales page.

So lets give this product the benefit of the doubt and see what it is really about.

What Does The Product Really Offer?

The video shows a couple of ordinary folks that have no experience in affiliate marketing checking their Clickblank accounts ever so often.

And wouldn’t you believe it – the accounts keep rising by 100’s of dollars.

By the end of one day, one lady has over 700 dollars in her CB account.

Sounds great, but what information are we missing from the infomercial?

What is Social Commissions Really About?

  • What did the participants pay in advertising to Plenty of Fish?
  • How many other ClickBank advertising campaigns lost money?
  • How many returned products to ClickBank did the Social Commissions users have at the end of the month?
  • What were their net profits for the day?

No answers can be found in the sales video.

During my time reviewing the Social Commissions program, I incurred numerous past clients that couldn’t get back a dime from Mr. Morrison.

What Other Members Say?

One lady claimed to lose almost $2,000 with Social Commissions program.

Here are two quotes that I found online in less than 5 minutes about Adrian Morrison and Social Commissions.

August 24, 2012 12:04 am

I agree with your review. I am reporting them to my bank as a scam. He promises no investment beyond $5, then it ends up costing $49, and promises to help guide you through the process, but then asks for $199, and if you don’t click on that and pay it, it takes you to this other guy’s video who explains how he is going to help if you just pay for website domains and hosting, which they claim you don’t have to DO!! TOTAL BS if you ask me

Jan 16, 2014 3:15pm

Adrian Morrison took $1990.00 out of my bank account when he was supposed to take 1/2 that amount for a free 60 day trial!! 6 days after I agreed to the 995.00, I saw that he had taken DOUBLE the amount 1990.00 from me, I  tried EVERYTHING to get a hold of him,and he NEVER got back to me!

How The System Works:

Here is how the system is supposed to work.

You use Plenty of Fish and create a custom-targeted traffic campaign.

You’re supposed to be able to start the campaign with five dollars, but that is not true, a lot more is needed.

The traffic is supposed to hit the Social Commissions site and bring in more sales.

Its that simple.

There are also some basic training videos but the core strategy is based on sending traffic from Plenty of Fish to an offer.

It is an interesting idea and I don’t doubt, at the time, it was successful.

But now it looks like another strategy that has been beaten to death.

Can You Say One Time Limited Offers?

Wow this guy has a bunch of them.

When I hear one time limited offers, I immediately get suspicious. 

If the product that I first bought was so amazing for a mere $47 dollars, then why do I need to purchase more products to become successful using Social Commissions?

I went on his site today and he had another One Time Limited Offer.

Here are a few other up-sells you will have to pay for before you become a member of Social Commissions. Ready?

  • Software to help you with campaigns $147, now discounted to $69
  • Outsourcing module $147
  • 3 campaigns from Adrian proven to work, $247, now discounted to $197

The Good and Bad with Social Commissions:

The Good:

– The concept of finding niche markets on Plenty of Fish to create Clickbank ads is a great idea.

– It’s creative, low cost advertising, and with an understanding of niche marketing, you could see a good amount of sales.

The Bad:

– You don’t need to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars to Social Connections to market affiliate programs on Plenty of Fish, you can do it for free.

– The infomercial reeks of Scam material. Completely focused on the end results of a simplified process of clinking and earning serious money.

– You are taught how to make Plenty of Fish ad campaigns, but really nothing more.

– You are bombarded with up-sells from Social Commissions.

– This is not a good place for a beginner, if you’re really looking to learn how to make money online, get started with an honest educational program for free.

Final Opinion of Social Commissions:

There is a well know concept in sales; a person needs to have 5-7 points of contact with a product before they are willing to purchase.

And that is why websites that provide users with information and reviews (like Amazon or eBay), produce high sales numbers and great results.

If you are going to build an Affiliate Website to promote products, you need to have a solid foundation, like a website that is based on quality content and information for your users.

If not, you won’t see good sales results.

People who purchase items online need to feel a sense of security.

They need to feel that they know what they are buying before they make a purchase.

Having said all that, I cannot say Social Commissions is a scam. 

There is a legitimate product, though the value is questionable. So though this product is not a scam, I can’t recommend it.

Instead, I suggest taking a look at the same program that I learned internet marketing from. They’ve helped 1,000’s of others just like you and me.

Here’s My Top Recommended Training >>

Maybe if Social Commissions showed more details about the actual process and work that goes into Social Commissions, it would be more plausible. But that’s not the case.

And with the negative reviews from the Social Commissions customers, I can’t recommend using this program.

Thanks for taking the time to read this review!

  1. Dear Todd,

    Thanks for the information packed review on Social Commission. Really helpful and thanks a lot. People are afraid of many scams online. By providing people with an honest review bloggers can help people to save their hard earned money and save their time and effort. Keep up the great work. I will come back to your website to learn more information.

    Your Friend,

  2. I tried Social Commissions and lost money, what a crappy education. Is wealthy affiliate really as good as everything I hear and read?


    1. That doesn’t surprise me Rosella about Social Commissions. To answer your questions, sign up for a free account with Wealthy Affiliate and you won’t be disappointed with their educational system.

      It’s loaded with so much content and training’s that I still have not gone through it all after being a member for over a year. At the same time, it’s got a great structured program to keep you on track on a daily basis as well as updated weekly training through their weekly Webinars.

      Try WA out, you’ll love the program and wished you’d started with them years ago, I promise.

      Have a great day,

  3. Brilliant review on social commissions, Todd.

    I guess when somebody has to bribe you to join a business, it shows their desperation and it definitely cries scam! As for plenty of fish, it’s an awesome dating site and with plenty of nice ladies too 😉

    I see that this Adrian guy is using the typical sales type talk to get people to react quickly and join. Many of us have seen this all before… blah, blah ,blah!

    Since the bad far outweighs the good, this social commission program is definitely NOT for people wanting to make real money online.

    How did you come across this scam any way?


    1. Hi Neil,
      Yes, Social Commissions has all the signs of a scam. From the phony pictures of Adrian talking in front of a podium wearing a blue t-shirt to the last minute offers as you try to leave his infomercial, Social Commissions screams scam. He could have at least wore a suite to make it appear legitimate, maybe even paid an audience to sit in for 15 minutes.

      I just hope that people see through these types of scammers.

      Ya know, I can’t remember how I found social commissions. I want to say it was a Google alert on online programs. So it must have been paid advertising. All I remember is that once I saw this program, my scam radar went off, so I had to do the review.

      Thanks again for the feedback and take care,

  4. Excellent review and I agree, it’s too bad there are so many scams out there. People are looking to work from home and get hit with this kind of junk that takes their money.

    1. Hi Rose,
      So true, I couldn’t agree with you more. Hopefully this article will reach people as they are investigating Social Commissions and we can save people time, money, and disappointment. Thanks for your comment and have a wonderful day.
