7 Figure Franchise Scam – Newbies are “Victims”, who are the “Vultures”?

Michael Cheney has your best interest at heart, that’s what I believe.

But is it really worth trusting $1,997 for his 7 Figure Franchise program?

But, they all point to one direction, affiliate marketing.


To be honest, I’ve been a customer of two or more of his products.

They all comes with the concept of a “turnkey system” that can generate you a lot of money instantly.

This is the same for 7 Figure Franchise.

Hypey Marketing Methods

As hypey and as scammy as it sounds, people did earn money from it, though I wouldn’t say the majority.

Michael Cheney is best known for his hypey marketing methods:

  1. Showing off income screenshots that may or may not be real – I’m sure you already know this;
  2. Sending 3 or more promotional emails (spamy emails) in a day;
  3. Hyped up sales videos that don’t exactly talk about the product – to get you into his sales funnels, and you’ d probably wouldn’t know what you are getting into until you’ve become a paying customer.

Many people (especially the white hat affiliate marketers) have criticized his marketing techniques and claims that he is not upfront.

In fact, they claimed that he is actually quite a rude person towards his customers.

I didn’t have a direct conversation with Michael Cheney in the past, but I was astonished by what I’ve seen:

However, these were all in the past, but I think it is worth knowing who Michael Cheney was.

Skip ahead today, let’s figure out if the 7 Figure Franchise is worth the money.

Seems like this program is actually a license for you to promote any of his past products and earn a 100% commission from them.

A sale on a 7 Figure Franchise membership will earn you a 50% commission, which is a $1,000.

So, essentially, you are paying $1,997 to be a franchisee.

What is 7 Figure Franchise?

To put it simply, when you are buying a franchise from McDonald, for example, you are leveraging on the McDonald’s brand name and its business model.

The same goes with the 7 Figure Franchise, less the authoritative brand.

So, you are not starting everything from scratch, but you are leveraging on a business system that is already generating profits.

All you have to do is to plug in your affiliate links, and drive massive amount of traffic to the business, and you’ll earn commissions.

Here’s what you’ll get when you purchase the 7 Figure Franchise (without the hype):

  • The ability to earn $1,000 commission by promoting the 7 Figure Franchise program;
  • The license to use every product Michael Cheney has created in the past as your own, here’s the list of products:
    • Copy Paste Commissions
    • Child’s play profits
    • Commission Black Ops
    • Commissionology
    • Commission Cartel
    • Email Black Ops
    • How to Scope for Cash
    • List Building Black Ops
    • The Commission Machine 2017
    • The Fan Page Money Method
  • Step-by-step blueprint
  • Complete members access to all of his past products;
  • Drive your first 1,000 visitors to the 7 Figure Franchise sales funnel;
  • 30 day direct support access to Michael Cheney
  • Fast Track Facebook Traffic Bonus – A course that teaches you how to drive traffic from Facebook

But, could this all be real? Can you really make a lot of money from this program?

7 Figure Franchise Scam – Newbies are “Victims”, the Experienced are “Vultures”

Because newbies wouldn’t know what to expect from this industry.

Let’s face it, if you are a newbie, you are an easy target.

That’s the reason I step up this website, which is to inform you about what you are getting into.

You see, if you are a seasoned online marketer, there’s only one reason for you to join this program…

… To earn high ticket commissions. Period.

You definitely wouldn’t need any form of training from the program, because you’ve probably learned it from somewhere else.

Honestly, I’ve personally spent thousands of dollars purchasing Internet Marketing knowledge.

And, I can guarantee that the knowledge in the 7 Figure Franchise training program isn’t worth $1,997.

As a newbie, cutting out all the fluff from the sales video, you need to understand that you are buying a business Franchise, not a training program. Don’t get this mixed up.

The training program is just a bonus for you to get things started, and if you are looking to acquire knowledge in the internet marketing space, or to learn how to build online businesses from scratch, this is probably not the program that you are looking for.

The Truth About Done-For-You Systems

Let me break this down for you…

So, Michael Cheney is leveraging on the idea of a done-for-you marketing system.

This means that he has built a fully automated sales funnel plus back-end products that will supposedly generate you a lot of commissions.

Honestly, the concept of a done-for-you marketing system is not something new on the market.

Programs like Digital Genius Lab, Global Affiliate Zone, The Banger Method, Free Money System, all has the same trait of a done-for-you system.

No doubt that you can earn commissions from those systems, but through experience, I find these programs unsustainable.

Because when the hype wears off, knowledgeable affiliate marketers will jump to yet another “new trendy product”, leaving all the newbies high and dry.

This is the same with all of Michael Cheney’s previous products. It happens that the 7 Figure Franchise is trending now.

So, if you want to earn a “quick buck”, you can jump on the bandwagon.

However, you just have to be sure that you have the upfront cash to buy traffic.

But, if you are looking for something else that is sustainable for a long term, and it doesn’t require you to invest a large sum of money, then I’ll recommend that you check this out (It’s my story of how I fired my boss after years of hard work).

What Michael Cheney Don’t Want You to Know?

For any kind of products to sell online, it needs 2 things:

  1. Good Quality Traffic
  2. High Converting Sales Funnel

We all know that the latter is taken care of, and all you need to do is to find good quality traffic. It’s a numbers game from here on out…

Here’s what Michael Cheney will teach you…

  1. Get free traffic from Facebook
    • Join make money online groups
    • Constantly add people from Facebook as friends (100 per week as recommended)
    • 3 Facebook Post per day on your Facebook profile
    • Chat with your “new friends” and entice them to join the 7 Figure Franchise
  2. Guest Posting for Traffic
  3. Free Forum Traffic
    • Look for discussions related to make money online and provide value
  4. Free Twitter Traffic
    • Similar tactic to getting free traffic from Facebook
  5. Free Pinterest and Instagram traffic
  6. Drive massive amount of highly targeted traffic through paid ads
    • Solo ads

You’ll get quite a good training about driving free traffic online (especially Facebook), but that’s basically it.

What is Missing from the Program?

You won’t get to know how to structure your sales pitch, how to setup your own sales funnel, how to setup your email sequences, psychology behind the sales funnels, and so much more that are critical to an internet marketer.

As a result, you can only rely on Michael Cheney and his 7 Figure Franchise, but what if it all goes away tomorrow (which is really possible – seen it too many times)?

Back track a little, Michael Cheney recommends you to Igor Kheifets’ Soloads for paid traffic.

Igor is said to be one of the best in the industry in terms of getting high quality paid traffic through Soloads.

However, my personal experience said differently.

I’ve used Igor’s solo ads in the past, and I’ve spent nearly a thousand dollars worth of traffic, driving them to high converting sales funnel, but I didn’t earn a dime from that traffic source.

As a result, I’ve wasted a lot of money without gaining anything. This is a risk if you decide to join this program.

Most of all, you must know that when you buy traffic from Igor’s Solo Ads, Michael Cheney will earn a commission as well. I’m sure he doesn’t want you to know.

A Walk Through of the 7 Figure Franchise System

You will be Bombarded with a lot of Spam Mails!

So, basically you are recommended to send your traffic to the Commission Machine Funnel, and once the subscriber subscribes to the email list, they will be bombarded by a series of emails which will eventually lead them to purchase the 7 Figure Franchise.

Here’s a screenshot of the series of emails I’ve gotten from Michael Cheney:

7 Figure Franchise Scam - spam emails

I’ve signed up to Michael Cheney’s email list on 1 February, and in about 3 months, I’ve received 200 emails.

That’s an average of 2 to 3 emails per day, and you’d probably understand why people are sending hate mails to Michael Cheney for “spamming”.

On top of that, while vetting the emails, I realized that they are all promotional emails which have nothing of value.

It is a series of emails that promotes all of his products one at a time (It’s not only 7 Figure Franchise that he promotes in his emails).

Think about it, when someone continuously sends emails that has little to no value, and he badgers you to buy products after products, what does it mean? Spam!

Well, I don’t know what you will call this, this is just my opinion.

Can you get a Refund? -You wish…

You can refer to the terms of purchase, but I’ll just share it here.

This is a conditional refund, which means that there are certain conditions that you have to meet before you can get a refund.

The first of which, you have to send at least 35 unique link clicks into the sales funnel each day.

I find this extremely hard to fulfill, especially when you are a beginner.

They do provide training, but what if you don’t get 35 unique link clicks a day, even when you applied whatever that is taught?

Then, you’ll need to add a 100 Facebook friends a week, and document everything down for a period of 60 days.

If you don’t earn back your investment within this 60 days, Michael Cheney will refund 200% of what you’ve invested in the 7 Figure Franchise.

My concern is more with the lack of ability to meet the requirements, then I’ll be left high and dry.

I am not sure about you, but I think it is almost impossible to get a refund. What do you think?

Could you share your thoughts with me in the comments section below?

My Sincere Advice to You

There’s definitely a lot of risk involved in this program.

Firstly, there is no guarantee that you will earn back what you have invested.

Although there’s a conditional refund policy, but I find that the requirements are extremely difficult to meet, especially for beginners.

Secondly, if you choose to, you can invest money into paid traffic. If you follow the recommendation of Michael Cheney, you’ll most likely be paying hundreds of dollars or thousands on Solo Ads provided by Igor. There’s no guarantee that this will work either.

Thirdly, what if Michael Cheney decides to close this program down one day? I bet you’ll not know how to rebuild your business.

Therefore, I prefer that you learn how to build a sustainable online business that, (1) doesn’t depend on others for your success, (2) doesn’t require you to invest a huge amount of money.

However, if you think that the 7 Figure Franchise is the best route for you, I wish you all the best.

I hope this review has provided you with sufficient information to make a decision.

If you think you’d want to learn how to build a sustainable online business, then you can join me in this program.

Thank you so much for reading this review!

    I still don’t know how much the program costs. He claims you can make the money without doing anything (of course you have to implement the tools). Of course it sounds too good to be true. Am listening right now. Have listened to a previous webinar and was told have to sign up immediately or miss out. Then the next day was given the link anyway, and continuous emails following. So no real pressure to sign up. (?) Somethings just not right. But the webinar is entertaining as Cheney is a colorful character.

  2. Marc Bryce says:

    Thanks for the review, it’s the best one of the 3 I’ve just read on other sites just now, and cements my decision NOT to invest in Michael Cheney’s 7 Figure Franchise site.
    It was recommended by Igor Kheifets who seems like a reputable Solo Ad vendor, as he says he’s earnt from it. But like most of these things, unless you’ve got a bit of authority and have a warm list, you’ll be the one not making much at all! Thanks again for your reviews site, it’s saved me some serious money!

    1. You are most welcome Marc! I am glad that my review helped!

      All the best to you!

  3. Jack, I will join Michael Cheney’s webinar tonight 8pm EST it was recommended by the solo ad expert Igor Kheifets. I will see if this the same crap he’s been promoting. I will ask him how he will teach us to promote and I will update you.

    1. Thanks Annie! Looking forward to your response.

      ~Jack (BareNakedScam)

  4. Hi Jack,

    I am your fan and I am reading your reviews constantly. How do I find you on facebook? Please let me know.


  5. Tom Woods says:

    I guess I don’t follow why you’re using the above screenshot as an example of Cheney’s rudeness. He’s replying to a savage who evidently can’t find the unsubscribe button, and sent him an abusive email. Michael’s reply was obviously playful. And I feel quite sure the person in question was not a “customer.”

    As for the rest of your review, who says the Franchise has to be your entire business? It’s a great series of funnels that include a bunch of high-quality products. That’s how I treat it. And so far I’ve probably pulled in somewhere in the neighborhood of $125,000 (I realize I won’t be believed, but that is indeed the true figure).

    1. Hi Tom,

      Michael Cheney is in fact rude, if you see some of his post in the facebook group. And yes, I was a customer.

      Honestly, I’ve reviewed a lot of programs before, I can conclude that the information that you get is definitely not worth the price. You are basically paying for the “franchise”.

      I am glad that you have a positive experience with this program, but hundreds of others paid thousands of dollars and didn’t earn a dime.

      Yes, you can say that they didn’t do the work they are supposed to, but in fact they did and didn’t achieve the results.

      Folks, you don’t need to pay thousands of dollars to get started in building your online business. In fact, you don’t even need a hundred dollar.

      Check this program out for yourself and compared them. See what works for you.

    2. Hi Tom,

      How much total did you invested into Michael’s franchise in order to get the $125,000. Did you copy and paste on FB group to get your traffic and conversions?

      Please share your experience in detail.



      1. Tom Woods says:

        I don’t use Facebook as a traffic source for my IM work; I use Facebook for my other business. I did not buy any ads. I use free traffic only. I had an email list of 5800 when I sent my first emails promoting Cheney’s products. That’s a lot to some people, but a pittance compared to most people in IM, of course.

        Anyone who invests the time can build up an email list of 1000.

        1. Anyone can build an email list of 1,000 subscribers, I totally agree, but in what niche is your list?

          You can’t promote a Make Money Online product to a list of people who are interested in the health and wellness niche, right?

          If you join Michael Cheney, you’ll be receiving tons of his promotional emails that do not have any value. It is just a way to get you to sign up one of his products.

          And, even if you’ve joined his programs, he’ll continue to shower you with his spammy emails. Do you want that to happen to your inbox? I know I wouldn’t.

  6. Hello brother, I’m John, a long time follower of your blog. (I’m an Asian from Myanmar-India region.)

    The first time I read your post was way back when you published your review about Wealthy Affiliate. (I’d been following your blog for quite sometime, haha)

    Recently, I came across a super interesting site, which promises a lot and I don’t know whether to trust them or not; so I thought to myself why not talk to you about it to have your expert opinion on it.

    They say, if I invest 0.04 bitcoin (this seems to be their minimum threshold), I’ll receive 1 % of it daily. Sounds too good to be true. At the moment I don’t have any money so I’m thinking of borrowing from my relatives to proceed with the investment. So before I make any move, could you please advise whether or not to proceed with this site. Thank you in advance.

    This is their site (they have a referral system also; they gave this to me as my ref link): https://westlandstorage.com/?p=66641

    Hopefully your review about them will be sweeter than what I have just read above, about Michael Cheney’s “7 Figure Franchise”? 🙂

    I’ll be waiting for your expert opinion, brother. Thanks again.

    Yours sincerely,

    1. Hi John,

      Thank you so much for your comment and I appreciate your following, it means a lot to me.

      And, thanks for the heads up on westlandstorage, I’ll definitely check it out.
