Easy 1 Up Review – This Is Not A Business

By Ray Alexander

Perhaps I shouldn't really call it an Easy1Up review while I haven't actually spent any money on it. But I have every reason to not want to. Besides hey, people very often write reviews without buying the actual products nowadays. YouTubers are worse - merely read out what it says in the sales page and flash the thumbs up or thumbs down. 3 minutes! Review. Done. At least I have an account with Easy1Up - someone persuaded me to join, but he was dumb enough not to explain why it was good apart from repeating '100% commission'.

In essence, Easy1Up is a Ponzi scheme in nature; members encourage others to invest money for nothing. Rob Peter to pay Paul. Although the main product itself is a training course, it's considered totally secondary.

Easy 1 Up Review

What Is Easy1Up?

Easy1Up is an affiliate marketing scheme, suitable for those who want to hard-sell something/anything for commission. "How It Works" page says it all, "Let Easy1Up be your own personal ATM" - you will receive 100% commission upon successfully recruiting others. That's the main activity, never mind what it sells.

The rules are pretty straightforward. You can only join Easy1Up when referred by someone. To qualify to be an affiliate, you must pay your one-time membership fee. There are 6 grades;

  • Elevation: $25 + Admin fee $5 = pay $30
  • Elevation Elite $100 + Admin fee $10 = pay $110
  • Vertex: $250 + Admin fee = pay $275
  • Vertex Elite: $500 + Admin fee $50 = pay $550
  • Vertex Pro: $1,000 + Admin fee $100 = pay $1,100
  • Vertex Live: $2,000 + Admin fee $500 = pay $2,500

Whatever the plan you paid for will be passed to your referrer if they're on the same plan or above. And the admin fee is paid to the creator, Peter Wolfing.

Likewise, your referral commission rate is set up to and including your plan. If you choose to join the second-lowest plan ($100) for example, every time someone you referred joins the membership, the maximum commission you can receive is $100.

And The Product?

Well, I have no objection to good affiliate programs with high payout rates, as long as the product is credible and - obviously, recommendable. Unfortunately just by looking at the titles, I can tell most of it is a collection of PLR products. All the 6 sets are "internet business how-to guides" in various different areas.

Easy1Up PLR

These guides really don't help in my opinion, because they provide ALL the business options such as;

  • Network marketing
  • Affiliate marketing
  • Email marketing
  • Solo ad business
  • YouTube marketing
  • Udemy online course programs
  • Dropshipping

I mean, affiliate marketing, solo ad business and drop-shipping are three totally, totally different business models. It's like recommending you to become a realtor, also a cafe owner, also a massage therapist and saying "the choice is yours"!

Again, I guess the actual content of the product or its quality doesn't matter to people who have an MLM/Ponzi scheme mindset because their only focus on the unique selling point is the commission structure.

I cannot recommend it as a course program because it's too broad, but if you are brand new to an online business, it may be worth taking a look at the headings and see what each term means.

Big Words, Mean Very Little

No offense to the creator guy, but I've never seen such an unattractive online business product page. There's no copywriting technique or whatsoever in the home page, but you find too many big words instead, i.e. decorative words that don't really mean much.

When you make a decision whether to take a training course or not, you ask yourself why you should pick this particular one but not others, right? So you read each paragraph and make sure you understand what it says.

"Learn to leverage the power of the internet"

Do you understand what this exactly means? I don't. Hacking? Money Laundering? Porn?

For example, Easy1Up says it's about "empowering entrepreneurs how to move up their competition by developing new strategies" It sounds like a business consultant agency, but the sentence itself doesn't explain the actual activities - it doesn't explain;

  • how it "empowers" them,
  • what the new "strategies" are, and
  • how it develops the strategies.

You know what I mean, you need a clear instruction from your learning material. You don't want pages worth of big words, essentially a meaningless chatter.

I suppose it will never do. Making up 'big words' is actually a common habit of network marketers. And once again, the product content doesn't matter for the Easy1Up users - there has to be something to sell to stay within the law (the scheme would have been illegal if there was no product to sell).

It could have been anything, but an online business niche is often seen to be the best choice because it's popular, universal, and easy to crossover the topics. For example, they talk about how to generate leads as part of the course training, but the true objective of that is to promote the system itself.

Help and Support

Plenty of support is available by email, Skype (Monday to Friday, 12pm - 9pm EST), or the Facebook group with over 5,000 members. The support is purely focused on selling the program itself as an affiliate, as you may have guessed it by now.

Not A Scam But Not A Business

Easy1Up is certainly not a scam, the program is operated legitimately, and there are numbers of similar affiliate marketing programs just like this one.

But this is not a business opportunity either. People who promote Easy1Up may believe it is, simply because they make money by referring others. "It's gotta be my business because I make a living from it!" But many of them (including my referrer) fail to explain what the real 'value' of the product they're trying to deliver.

I'll tell you what I mean - if someone ever recommends Easy1Up to you, ask them to explain what you are paying for. For example the lowest membership fee is $25. You are paying for a set of training course;

Easy1Up Elevation

Ask your referrer;

  1. What you can exactly 'achieve' after each course,
  2. What you are going to be benefitted from it, and
  3. Why this $25 course is a better value compared to any other $25 training courses.

Most of them will start to say, "You pay $25, but each time you refer someone, you will make a 100% commission..."

They will fail to answer your questions 1-3 above, because they're not trying to sell a product to you as a potential buyer (=business) but they're trying to recruit you as a member. The exact idea is based on the "rob Peter to pay Paul" Ponzi scheme, that's not a business.

"No Refund" Policy

Easy1Up's terms boldly state; "All sales are final. There are no refunds."

This is another proof that Easy1Up is only looking for those who are committed to promoting the program itself. If you are up for it, this is something that you should keep in mind before joining.

And if you are looking to learn online business, Easy1Up is not for you. You read a thousand reviews that can eventually lead you to make a purchase, and you might still regret. Not because you've changed your mind but because the product you see is not how it's described by others. Especially with Easy1Up, all it has is the topic titles - no examples or demonstrations. I cannot recommend it as an online training platform ("empowering entrepreneurs"!) for that reason.

Easy 1 Up Pros and Cons


  • Commission structure is straightforward.
  • Low cost to start.
  • Good support incl. Facebook Group.


  • Focused on affiliate marketing as a recruitment.
  • No refund.
  • The actual product does not recommend a particular business model.

Easy 1 Up Review: Conclusion

As an affiliate marketer, I would only recommend products or services that I genuinely believe to be good, and would also clarify who they're suitable for. I don't like the idea of promoting an affiliate program itself for the sake of it, just because the payout rates are high. At the end of the day, it's an affiliate's responsibility to stay truthful to the potential buyers.

For that reason I don't personally recommend Easy1Up to anyone. If you feel that's all good and you are confident enough to make a good profit from it, then join and see what others say. The decision is up to you.

  1. Reminds me of another similar scam called Empower (run by the two Davids) that was quite the rage a few years ago. It created quite a furor and many people ended up losing their life’s savings in that scam.

    1. Hi Walter, yes Empower Network was notorious, though David Sharpe left early and now runs good business training programs. MLMs, in general, are all based on the idea of making money for the sake of making money, sadly often victimize inexperienced members. Thanks for your comment.

  2. This is a very good review page I can make use of.
    I have never heard of Easy1up but I will make a note of it. It sounds like it is not a good system. If someone recommends it to me, I make reference to this page then I will think about it again. I have booked marked this page. Thanks.

    1. Hi Arnold, thanks for your comment. It’s up to you to believe in a system like this one ‘for the sake of money’ or prefer to genuinely help people by recommending meaningful products.

  3. Hi Ray, I have heard about Easy1Up before. It sounds like Ponzi or pyramid scheme. I don’t like the way they promote something that they don’t really care about. I agree with you about Easy1Up not being a business. I think it’s almost fraudulent.
    Thank you for pointing out about the non- refund policy also. This is extremely important for us to know that it’s not providing a fair service. Nobody has recommended me Easy1Up yet but I will make a note of the name. I will stay away from it. Thank you for the awesome review.

    1. Hi Hitesh, thanks for your comment. Yes, E1U won’t refund money for no reason, means something’s wrong with the “service in relation to the product” but it’s all about the Ponzi investment.

  4. I was invited to Easy 1up by at least 10 people but many of them only recently. It sounds like everyone is at it right now. Good to know the training is useless because no way I’m going to recommend something I don’t agree to promote.
    You say people hard sell. I think it’s true. When someone invited me to join Easy 1 up I said to him I was already a member but I did not pay. He told me to sign up again using a different email address because the old system no longer worked. That’s BS I know he only wanted me to be his referal.

    1. Hi Edward, that sounds just like what many of the inexperienced network marketers do – contact people randomly and say something that doesn’t make sense. They’re not looking to make a sustainable business relationship with anyone, so they don’t really care, I suppose! Thanks for sharing your experience and thoughts.
