Perpetual Income 365 Review – Underwhelming

By Ray Alexander

If you're brand new to online marketing and have most of the tools "done for you", then my Perpetual Income 365 review can help you decide whether this is the right method for you. 

When I first looked at the sales page of Perpetual Income 365, I really didn't understand what it was trying to sell. I just couldn't make sense of it - both the video and text invitations are insanely lengthy, and the content is barking crazy. It explains something about the "Micro-Commitment Consistency Compounding Algorithm - totally over my head. This "system" is allegedly co-created by a mystery person, Mr. X, a data scientist who works for Netflix. Frankly, the story is rubbish and some of the testimonials are fake. 

Anyway I decided to get this. I think this product will get you started super-easy, which is great. But I also think, where will your business go from there in the long run? Read on, and you can perhaps make your own decision.

What Is Perpetual Income 365?

The Perpetual Income 365 is an affiliate marketing package for newbies. The package includes; 2 x ready-made squeeze pages of your choice, web hosting of these pages, an email followup sequence for 31 days, and a guide to solo ad traffic.

Firstly, you are required to sign up with ClickBank (affiliate network) and GetResponse (email marketing service) to make it work. Once you've signed up with both, you can connect them to your PI365 squeeze page at a click of a button. That will be it. You'll be provided with your page URL, which will be ready for you to promote.

You need to pay for your own traffic. Just like any other "all-done-for-you" systems, how you send traffic is your own responsibility. The PI365 recommends a few solo ad traffic services, the cost of which varies anywhere between $40 - $100 per 100 visits.

When a visitor likes your squeeze page and opts in (=signs up with you), they'll be immediately directed to PI365's sales page. If they make a purchase, which will cost them $47, you'll automatically receive 50% of it as a commission. At the same time, they'll automatically start receiving your email campaigns from your GetResponse account (which are already done for you). They'll receive one email per day for the next 31 days, or until they unsubscribe otherwise.

The Creator - Shawn Josiah

Shawn is a successful 7-figure affiliate marketer, who generated over $500,000 in sales last year on Clickbank alone. Previously he was co-selling a similar affiliate marketing method, "Profit 365" with Jamie Lewis.

What I Like About Perpetual Income 365

#1 Free Email Swipes

Writing 31 days' worth of email sequence (follow up emails) is a lot of a job, especially for those who are brand new to email marketing. So this is definitely a time-saver.

#2 Ready-Made Squeeze Page Integration

Thousands of ready-made squeeze pages may be freely available elsewhere, but the setting up job (linking them to your affiliate pages and your autoresponder) can be daunting for some new starters.

PI365's squeeze pages are the ones that particularly proven to work by Shawn, and the setup is all done-for-you. So this can be a plus.

#3 Introduction To Solo Ad Traffic

Although very brief, Shawn will explain what solo ad traffic means, and also recommends some sellers. If you previously have no knowledge of it, this can be useful.

#4 Easy Dashboard

The menu bar is simple and easy to understand. You just start from top to bottom (1. Integrations, 2. Money Pages, and 3. Traffic Crusher), and there's a brief video instruction at each step.

What I Don't Like About Perpetual Income 365

#1 No Flexibility

(Almost) all is really, done for you, so you don't have to learn anything, which equally means there'll be no learning opportunity in the long term. I don't think blindly promoting the same pages the same way is a sustainable way to scale up your affiliate business. You can't keep doing that forever, you see what I mean?

The product includes a 25-minute "mindset training" video by Shawn, but you're not going to learn about the whole mechanism unless you are willing to work that out yourself. 

#2 You'll Be Blacklisted If You Claim A Refund!

By all means, I respect Shawn Josiah as a successful entrepreneur, but there's one thing I couldn't overlook. In the welcome message, he asks the newly joined member not to claim a refund, referring to "abusers" and "cheap people".

Yes, there may be some "abusers" who keep buying digital products and immediately take advantage of a money-back guarantee. But Shawn boldly states that requesting a refund is something that "cheap people" do. He says he does not like it because he put a lot of effort into creating this system. And he goes on to say, "The moment you click the refund button, your ID will automatically be blacklisted. This is not the place to be."

60 Day Money Back Guarantee PI365

Firstly, the sales page clearly promises "60 days "no question asked" money-back guarantee." ClickBank specifically allows buyers to claim a refund easily under its policy. There's no way he can ask the customers not to claim their money back after the purchase, let alone threaten them to blacklist their ID's. That's not something legitimate sellers are supposed to be doing.

Secondly, consumers are lawfully entitled to claim a refund when they receive the wrong product. When a sales page is misleading, the buyer will receive a product that they didn't expect to receive. I feel this exactly applies to Perpetual Income 365 - I was indeed misled by the sales page, explained at #3 below.

I'm sure there are some abusers and I can see Shawn's frustration as a seller, but most of us claim a refund for a valid reason, fairly and lawfully under the guarantee policy. We should not be intimidated by words such as "you'll be blacklisted" and "cheap people" for doing what we feel is right and fair.

#3 Underwhelming / Nothing New

The reason I was particularly interested in Perpetual Income 365 was that it refers to;

  • The "algorithm" used by Netflix, Google, Microsoft, and Apple.
  • The "7-year old YouTuber who makes $22 million."

Unfortunately, neither of them is mentioned in the members' area. 

It turns out that the product is about generating leads using a standard squeeze page and making ClickBank affiliate commissions using solo ads. That's exactly what I was doing 3 years ago, using the exact kind of squeeze pages while I was selling solo ad traffic to others!

You see, I'll have no option but to claim a full refund because I feel I was duly mis-sold. 

#4 Fake Testimonials

There are quite a few testimonials on the sales page but I can see a couple of fake photos of an actor, and there's one guy from Fiverr who is notorious for leaving fake testimonials. Fake names, saying things like "I'm getting paid 365 days around the clock" which is hypothetically impossible. So you never know how many of them are real and credible.

Perpetual Income 365 Fake Testimonials

How Much Will It Cost You?

The total cost will really depend on how much you can afford to pay - the more you pay for the traffic, the more chance of making sales you'll have. 

  • Your Perpetual Income 365 user fee: $47 per month.
  • GetResponse monthly fee: Shawn says "100% free" which is not true! GetResponse offers 30-days free trial, then the price starts from $15 per month thereafter.
  • Solo ad traffic: $40 - $100 to generate 20-50 leads (subscribers). I'll explain it later.

The worst-case scenario by spending as little as possible will be to pay $47 (PI365 monthly fee) + $12 (GetResponse monthly fee) + $40 (solo ads) = $99 every month only to generate 20-25 subscribers but make no sales, and keep losing $99 every month.

But the most optimistic scenario by spending as little as possible will be, by paying the same amount, you generate up to 50 subscribers and at least 5 of them buy PI365. It means you'll receive 50% commission on $47 x 7 = $117.50, which will pay off your monthly cost. (I think I'm being a little too ambitious, to be honest!)

Solo Ad Traffic

Shawn recommends 4 x solo ad traffic sources;

  • Udimi - it's a solo ad marketplace, a handy place to use. You'll get responsive leads if you carefully choose a vendor with a good feedback rating.
  • Traffic For Me (TrafficForMe.com) - I've had a bad experience (bad optin rates and communications). Various reviews can be found via Google search, perhaps you can check them and make your own decision.
  • Wayne Crowe - I know him personally. Wayne is a great seller, a great tutor, very helpful. I got very responsive traffic from Wayne in the past.
  • Roy Tay - I've also bought a lot of traffic from him. Great seller.

I've mentioned "scenarios without spending much" earlier but I feel silly writing it. In all honesty with solo ad traffic, I don't think you're going very far if you keep spending little, but of course it really depends on your budget. I can give you some tips if you use Udimi;

  • Send a message to the vendor you want to use and ask any questions. If their reply is abrupt ("Ok, will do." "Yes I can.") rather than being a little more helpful, forget that vendor. It may sound crazy for judging solely from the way they respond but from my experience, no responsive vendor = no responsive traffic. 90%+ problematic.
  • Don't go for the cheapest vendor unless they have a lot of good ratings. You might get 60%+ optins, most of which are bots, not human subscribers.

Free Bonuses

3 x bonus ebooks are available to download if you join Perpetual Income 365. They are all general guides and relevant to online business, but a little old, in fact they're all PLR products, available for free (just google it).

Perpetual Income 365 Bonuses
  • Start Today Tiny Subscriptions Big Profits (17 pages, published in 2016)
  • Income Commander (63 pages, published in 2012)
  • Recurring Revenue Master Plan (25 pages, published in 2012)

Upsells

  • Perpetual Asset ($127) - Allows you to install 5 more squeeze pages. It may be a good option in the future if you decide to keep the membership and try out various different pages.
  • 5 Clicks Profit Activator ($197) - Enables you to customize your squeeze page, display extra banner, visitor's country flag, "spots available" display, and track visitors.
  • Email ATM ($297) - Use "Content Fountain" to re-write email swipes automatically, "Spambox Filter" to cloak affiliate links to avoid your email treated as spam, and send a broadcast (one-off emails) using "Instant Broadcasts". Writing and sending out your own broadcasts without the right knowledge can risk spamming and having your GetResponse account suspended. So I think Email ATM can be useful.

Help and Support

There'll be a support email to contact but they'll only get back to you "within 24 to 48 hours". But upon joining PI365, you'll be advised to join the Facebook group and it sounds definitely like a better option to receive help and support. There seem to be a very small number of members in the group, so your questions may receive good attention.

60-Day Money-Back Guarantee

The refund policy set out by the Perpetual Income 365 is unclear for 2 reasons;

  • The sales page says, "If you don't make any cash in 60 days, you can request a refund. No questions asked." But it also says "If you don't make money in the next 60 days after applying what we thought", they'll refund you money, which means they will ask some questions.
  • As mentioned earlier, once you join, you'll be asked not to claim a refund, even though the sales page has a link to ClickBank to receive order support.

Anyway, your purchase will be covered by ClickBank's 60-day refund policy. So if you're not happy with the product, I suggest that you request a refund via your ClickBank receipt, though you won't be able to buy this seller's future products.

Perpetual Income 365 Pros and Cons

Pros

  • It allows you to start affiliate marketing without learning much.
  • Easy to follow and navigate.
  • Free email swipes.
  • 60-day money-back guarantee by ClickBank.

Cons

  • You have to use GetResponse to work.
  • It's just an ordinary affiliate marketing package. I find nothing new.
  • Automatically blacklist you if you claim a refund, which is unethical.

Perpetual Income 365 Review - Conclusion:

Although the sales page is misleading, Perpetual Income 365 allows those who don't wish to learn techniques to start affiliate marketing right away. For newbies only, I would say. 


It depends on whether you want to grow your affiliate business by learning. If you do want to learn, I would recommend 12 Minute Affiliate instead - it will also provide done-for-you squeeze page templates as well as training that covers all the basic affiliate marketing techniques.

  1. Hello Ray. My name is Barb. I found your page by accident. I received an email from 365 and decided to check it out. My gut was telling me it was ok but there was something not right. Thru checking it out, I found you. I thank you for being honest and straight forward, especially about being blacklisted if you request a refund. My problem is my age, and loosing 2 jobs because of covid, finding work isn't easy. I'm looking at other options to generate income. Owned my home for 35 years and now I might be faced with loosing it if something doesn't change and fast! I'm a newbie to internet ways of making money but know a few people who do. Any suggestion would be very helpful. Thank you for your time in advance for answering this post. Regards Barb

    1. Hi Barb, thank you for sharing your thoughts, and also sharing your current situation. I’m sorry to hear that you’re losing your jobs, I totally understand, as I also have a few close friends who are suffering financial difficulties due to Covid. To be perfectly honest, it’s extremely difficult to be able to make money online so quickly. It’s all about running your own business, so it takes time and so much effort to put in, plus some running costs before you may start to see results…just like running any other business.

      If you have your skill to sell, you can try places such as freelancer.com but to find an online job (i.e. get paid by someone) is even more competitive. So to sum up, unfortunately, you can’t rely online to find a job that replaces your local job… Unless you have an ambition to run a business, which takes time. If you’re interested in making money by affiliate marketing through blogging, join me from my homepage for free, but it won’t happen overnight, unfortunately. Any questions don’t hesitate to get back to me at any time. Thanks for your comment Barb, I wish you the best of luck!

  2. Hi Ray, well done for your thorough review. I see some sad comments from bitter twisted losers 😂 and you handled them well, you may be from WA but you’re not even recommending WA! I can see their frustration, I too have seen a lot of sites that criticize other products just to try to direct people to WA but these people have no rights to criticize you without reading your post. as always I appreciate your honest opinion Ray.

  3. Hello there ..Jordan here and I'm looking over this whole thing with pl365 and I myself could really use some more income in my life but I'm a little worried about spending what little money I do have just to possibly get ript off or this bot work for me will someone please help me out and walk me threw this …thank you …Jp

  4. Haha, I just KNEW this had to be a Wealthy Affiliate Members "review" based on the pure negativity – and BOOM, I was right – your "#1 program" listed at the very end.

    Thanks for letting the world know you can't be trusted, that was too easy! 🙂

    1. James, you’re missing the point. We affiliates write product reviews – positive or negative – and if negative (i.e. if we can’t recommend the product) we recommend something else. It’s our privilege to do so. And the recommended product should be placed at the end of the post, it’s called “call-to-action” and ANY affiliates would do this.

      Whether I’m a Wealthy Affiliate member or not is irrelevant. I have written 300+ positive reviews on this site over the past years and recommended many other training programs and online marketing tools. If you had read this post more carefully, you would have noted that my opinion on Perpetual Income 365 is negative based on my experience, therefore I would recommend a similar but better program instead, i.e. WA. (It’s not my “#1 program” by the way – I have never claimed so.)

      Whether to trust a review or not, the decision is always up to you. It sounds like you may have had a bitter experience with Wealthy Affiliate, but there’s no one program that suits everyone. I suggest that you do your research more carefully.

    2. That's exactly all marketers are working on this way. They publish or create many supposedly impartially genuine different product reviews with the purpose to prove in the particular genuine reviews present a s*y product because the visitor looks for a desperate way to earn money and the savior marketer who is giving this review here, supposedly cares about the visitors who arrive in these product review websites, they end to present all of these products as yet another junk and at the end, the marketer who conducts this review is your savior and saving you from yet another s*y product by suggesting you their super-duper product which ends to be yet another s*y bull*t, because from their bull*t product they suggesting you, they know you are so desperate and you will register blindly and then they will earn commissions from it.
      Usually, there is nothing else to suggest, because at the end of the day you will discover that all money-making systems you search and try to find a genuine review and I mean ALL without an exception are just yet another sh*y garbage, then they redirect you to the Wealthy Affiliate. I was a member there. Do not expect much. Of course, I do not suggest this sh*y perpetual 365 income but I do not suggest and Wealthy Affiliate too. I do not know if this will ever get published and may will not be allowed to be published, because the author of this site will lose his commissions when his visitor reading this comment).

      1. Panagiotis, it sounds like you’ve had some bad experiences but firstly, don’t swear – your comment’s been found in the spam folder probably because of it.

        I expressed my honest opinion in this blog post. Because I can, and so can any other product reviewers in any way they want. If we don’t approve one product, we try to recommend something else that we think is better. If we don’t have anything else to recommend, we don’t. I don’t. You don’t seem to like it but it’s none of your business.

        As a reader, whether to believe what we (reviewers) say or not is all up to you. But if you want to challenge us, you must explain it constructively. You say Perpetual Income 365 is bad, tell us why. And this post is nothing to do with Wealthy Affiliate – What are you talking about? I recommended something else in the post. I suggest that you read the review again.

        I hope it’s clear. I wish you all the best.

  5. Excellent, crisp and honest review! Other so-called "Reviewers" (scammers) should learn from you. Thank you. I have bookmarked your site.

  6. Finally someone who does honest reviews, thank you. You spared me from that long boring never ending intro to the redicilous Netflix algorithm garbage. I will definitely not be purchasing this, it's also way overpriced for what it is & how rude is this guy re the blacklisting, isn't he supposed to be a professional marketer. Any decent marketer would never add such a redicilous claim & tarnish their own reputation. Thank you again for the review.

    1. Hi Monika, thank you for your comment. I’m only guessing but the majority of the people who buy this product may easily give up after watching a few video clips, so they don’t even try to understand the connection between the members’ area and the “Netflix algorithm garbage” which never exists… I agree with you, it’s a little overpriced, as there are an increasing number of affiliate marketing training programs out there. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I wish you all the best!

  7. Hi, thanks for your honest review. Its was a big help. I am new to this and would love some recommendations an how best to start affiliate marketing and learn at the same time.

  8. Thank you for the many great recommendations and contributions. They will certainly help many people to become the person they want to be. There are a lot of programs out there. This service has helped me a lot Maybe this is interesting for someone else too…

  9. I don’t know about Josiah but Jamie Lews is a scammer because I wasted my money on his wasteful training before. He was previously collaborating with that man he is not legit.

    1. Hi Ozioma, thanks for sharing your thoughts. It’s not a scam though, as I explained in the post, the monthly membership includes these tools which some new affiliate marketers may find useful.

  10. Hi, thanks for the real user review. I was checking several reviews but you are one of very few that actually tried the system and that’s exactly what I was looking for.

    I thought the training had something special also, and that’s why I was looking for a real review. Looks like it’s just another done for you affiliate package then now I know it’s not worth getting it.

    Appreciate your honesty. I totally agree with your opinion on this guy calling customers cheap, not acceptable. People claim for a refund for a reason and that’s what the money back guarantee is for. Up to him to blacklist customers for wrong reasons but it’s him who’ll end up getting backfired.

    1. Hi Syed, thanks for your comment. I agree with you, I was expecting a little more from the package, I’ve seen better ones. But the guy’s young and he’ll come up with some innovative training courses in the future for sure. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, appreciate it.

  11. Thank you for your review. It’s good to know this is legit because I thought it was going to be a scam.
    I didn’t understand about Netflix I wanted to know more about it.
    I knew MR. X. was fake.
    It’s good to know this is a affiliate marketing training. But it does not look it’s worth for me. Thank you.
    Vinda

    1. Hi Vinda, thanks for your comment. You’re right, it’s nothing to do with Netflix, and there’s no Mr. X either. It’s not bad though, if you want a ready-made standard squeeze page and email swipes and try affiliate marketing this way. Thanks for your comment.

      1. i think that algorithm is totally illegal! and one huge scam!!
        This is since it is too good to be true and a rule in life is that if someone is willing to sell you something really good for extremely cheap you JUST DO NOT TAKE THE OFFER! SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG!

        1. Hi, thanks for your comment. I’m not sure which algorithm you’re referring to. I wouldn’t say Perpetual Income 365 is a scam though. The sales page is misleading but the guy teaches the right affiliate marketing method. If you could tell us more about your experience, we’d appreciate it.
