10K Challenge Review – Why I Quit

Dec 19

To my knowledge the 10K Challenge began sometime near the beginning of this year (2012). It might have been January, however, I’m not certain on that. Regardless, I joined around March 16, 2012, and stopped working the program around June 2, 2012. Recently (this month or last month), the 10K challenge had a re-launch or maybe it was just a face-lift. All I understand is that some of the website looks different now, and the system was changed with how you can progress with it. However, I took about an hour and browsed the system and the majority of it looks the same as far as the training goes. Ok, adequate history, this is a 10K challenge review, and I’ll be providing my thoughts and viewpoints on this program.

When I initially signed up in March the advertisements stated you just had to invest 35 minutes each day with the program. That wasn’t real for me at all, and it appeared several others were investing even more time with it each day also. Sure, when you at first joined for the first 3 or 4 days you can do it in 35 minutes, but after one month in I was investing 3 to four hours every day on it. Most of that time was spent clicking for credits in safelists. From what I could see much of the 35 minutes talk has actually been gotten rid of . That’s good, since it was misleading.

I can tell you exactly just what you will certainly be doing for just what I believe is now called the “training phase”.

Initially , sign-up for 3 Gmail accounts (for the safelists and text ad exchange emails you’ll be bombarded with)

Sign up with 2 to 3 safelists or text ad exchanges. You are trained to do this every day till you ‘ve signed up with all of those on your referral builder web page . Between the two, you’re looking at over 50 programs to sign up with.

Click to earn credits in the safelists and text ad exchanges.

Submit your advertisement copy with these safelists and text advertisement exchanges.

The three points above is what you are at first taught to do on a daily basis. Rinse and repeat. Prior to the re-launch when I was in the system this is just what the 10k challenge system trained me to do for the first 90 days. At that point I went on to different and better training (in my opinion ). The system was just showing about 96 days anyhow at that time, so I had actually reached the end. It now looks like you progress through levels, and time and days have actually been eliminated from the equation.


I did find out things during the three months that I was there. I got connected to skype, and I started constructing a network of individuals over at Google plus. I didn’t even have a Google plus profile before the 10k challenge. Now I have a network of over 2200 individuals.

You additionally discover a couple of good nuggets in the form of inspirational quotes and videos ; and the 10k challenge community in general had a positive setting from my experience.


No in-depth marketing training. You basically pound away at the safelists and text advertisement exchanges blindly hoping for a sign-up.

The in-ability to directly incorporate your very own autoresponder. Lead capture web pages are offered that includes an autoresponder with follow up messages; however, if you wish to implement your own you’ll have to build all of that yourself. If you are serious about building a company online you need to be creating your very own list ( team and consumers ); not someone else ‘s list. The two systems I’m using today both let you easily tie in your own autoresponder in about ten to fifteen minutes.

It simply didn’t work for me. I truly counted on it initially . I also went so far as to acquire a domain name specifically for it, then set up a blog site to provide news, tips , and motivation to my team and others. I sent out over 6,033,586 e-mail ads through the safelists. Yes, six million. That didn’t consist of the free marketing I did within the text advertisement exchanges, the banners I placed, or the paid advertising I applied.

I ended up with 70 sign-ups (I additionally got over a dozen sign-ups for some folks on my team); and about 6 or 7 of those came from the safelists and text advertisement exchanges. A lot of them originated from advertising that was not taught in the 10k challenge. Now I think some of these paid advertising sources you can use have actually been included with the relaunch.

If you hit up the referral contest board you’ll notice a list of names and exactly how many referrals they have pulled in for that month. I can easily tell you that the people at the top are using strategies outside of the safelists and text ad exchanges. I know because I spoke with some of them, and used them myself. Mine was mainly paid marketing.

I also wasted time clicking for safelists credits. We were told not to squander our time with traffic exchanges, but in the end I felt safelists were just as wasteful. If you are planning to utilize safelists, merely find a good one and pay for the solo advertisements . Maybe the ones listed at the 10k challenge were not that great ? I honestly don’t know, my success rate was very low. It could have been that I wrote unsatisfactory ad copy; but at the 10k challenge I was not trained the best ways to create excellent advertisement copy for the safelists.

If you are serious about developing a business online then you WILL CERTAINLY invest in yourself and the tools you need. Get more information about the 10k challenge at my blog; and check out my MLSP review if you are ready to get serious.
