Juan Ads say they can give you the opportunity to earn money simply by clicking your mouse, but can you really make decent money clicking ads?
In this Juan Ads review, we're going to look at how good of a moneymaker this really is and whether it's a scam or legit.
I've seen many so-called work from home opportunities like this before so I knew I had to investigate further and find out what Juan Ads is really all about.
And just so you know: I am not affiliated with Juan Ads in any way.
I am just an online entrepreneur who's trying to give the best tips and advice to help readers like you make money online.
What Is Juan Ads Exactly?
Calling itself “the number 1 fastest growing Network Marketing and Advertising Company in the Philippines.” you already know it's about way more than just clicking on ads…
Basically, Juan Ads is a networking marketing company (or MLM) disguised as an advertising agency. Read this review in full and I'll explain why…
As a money-making opportunity, this pays almost nothing – just $0.001 per click. So if you're looking for real ways to make money online, I'm sorry this isn't it.
Juan Ads Review
To find out exactly what is happening with Juan Ads I decided to sign up and see for myself…
Go to the website and it asks you to register without telling you anything about what you're actually registering for:
I decided to go ahead and click the Register button. Next up was a screen with a bit more information and a simple form you need to fill out.
Already I see there's 2 levels of membership – free and premium:
Once I filled out my name, email address and password, I confirmed I wasn't a robot and agreed to the terms of service (maybe I should have read them first?)
I clicked on the register button expecting to go to the next screen but then an error showed up…
Apparently I needed to enter a sponsor's name so I just entered the first random name I could think of and finally, I was inside the member's area!
At this point it wasn't clear where I should go or what I should do, just the UPGRADE ACCOUNT tab was flashing.
Finally, I found ‘Online Jobs' in the left-hand side menu so I went ahead and clicked it and it bought some PPC (pay per click) jobs.
Now hopefully I can try to earn some money…
I clicked on the first ‘BitMiner' ad which just showed a blank screen. I then had to wait for 10 seconds until I was told I earned $0.001.
The second ad I clicked on was for a poster printing company, I had to look at this screen for 20 seconds:
For the next job I clicked on LounJ and had to look at their Facebook page for 20 seconds. That earned me another $0.001.
I've spent a minute doing this and earned a ridiculous $0.003. I'm not getting rich anytime soon!!
This is just 3/hundredths of a dollar. So I would have to do this for 6 hours straight to try to get to $1. How can anyone call clicking on ads like this a legit way to make money?!
The Truth: You Need To Recruit
It's now clear Juan Ads is not about making money clicking ads; what they really want is you to upgrade to the premium membership so they make money off of you.
Once you've paid ₱900 (or $47) to become a premium member then you can start making money by signing up other people who will pay ₱900 so you can make a commission.
Nobody is making money with the ads, it's all about getting a commission from the membership fees.
Watch this Juan Ad video presentation and you'll see recruiting is all they talk about:
Can You Really Make Money With Juan Ads?
Yes, but not by clicking on ads. You'll have to lie to recruit your friends and family by telling them this is a real and legit side hustle so they'll upgrade and you get paid.
People sign up because they like the idea of making easy money but then you're pushed to sign up for the premium membership and told to sign others up to do the same.
Wikipedia says a pyramid scheme is:
“A business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme.”
This is exactly what they do at Juan Ads.
A Filipino lady called Juny went ahead and paid for the Premium membership and I think she said it best:
“Yes, I can do the fast track, I can invite people to join and sign under my referral, that’s the fastest way to earn more.
But NO, I don’t have the heart to lie and make false promises only to redeem my loss. I am not alone on this sentiment, I wish all aspirants to think twice and study how the system works.
If you think the scheme works for you then you may go on, but then again, consider your referrals. Listen to your inner voice, are you willing to help them the best way that you can?
If not, again, I have one more word for you… are you happy with your earnings while your referrals are striving to earn a $0.001?”
Are you willing to deceive people into joining so you can make a one-off commission?
I know I'm not!
Is Juan Ads Legit Or A Pyramid Scheme?
Honestly, I won't be using Juan Ads again – working 6 hours for $1 is not worth it at all!
That's just $0.16 per hour!
Paying people $0.001 to click on your ads is pointless. The people viewing your ads are only doing so to try to make some money and are not interested in whatever product or service you're trying to sell. There's no reason for companies to use Juan Ads.
Really the only way to make money with Juan Ads is by recruiting others into the same pyramid scheme and do you really want to promote a scam to your family and friends to try to make money? I do not recommend you go down this path.
If you're serious about making money online then you can't waste your time clicking on ads for $0.16 an hour. Instead, you could be better using your time to build a real online business for yourself.
