Aspire Today – Review

face behind the mask

Aspire Today isn’t really a system of its own.

Well… I say “really” when I mean “it isn’t at all.”

It’s a one page junk site fronting Digital Altitude. The sales video goes into great superficial detail about all the riches of the world that await you upon sign-up, yet neglect to mention that one pertinent fact.

I thought it might be revealed in what looks to be the Full Income Disclosure link at the bottom of the page, but the link is just text coloured to look like a link, it doesn’t link to anything.

There is a genuine link on the Order Page… but it leads to a blank page displaying this: “404: This page can not be found.”

I believe it’s a legal requirement to provide proof of income when you’re making claims such as are made in the sales video, but given Digital Altitude is embroiled in legal action for ripping-off MOBE, maybe it’s not too surprising that this page isn’t too concerned with adhering to the legal niceties.

And that action by MOBE is sort of like the Triads suing the Mafia for breach of copyright re their business model.

The video itself, well that’s a great piece of nostalgic 80s TV infomercial inspired production. That same voice could be plugging a time-saving kitchen appliance or weight loss program, but in this vid, he’s giving you the money making evangelical sermon.

But you’re only eligible to have your financial soul saved in the next thirty minutes.

Don’t worry, though – just refresh your screen or open another browser window, and the gates of financial heaven will remain open to you for eternity.

Or until the hosting package isn’t renewed anyway.

It’s just a phoney countdown timer that refreshes when you reset the page – which is illegal in advertising as it’s intent is to deceive. There is no cut off time, it’s just a sales pressure tactic to try and get you to sign up quickly, before you get a chance to do a little investigating, and come across pages like this.

To add further urgency and gravitas to the proceedings, a bunch of names and locations keep jumping up from the lower left hand side of the screen, purporting to show those ‘recently’ joined… but I’d take that with a pinch of salt. You get plugins that generate false info like that, and even if it’s genuine sign-ups, you can bet they didn’t sign-up from Aspire Today’s page at the date and times displayed.

Like, “OMG, I better get on the gravy train before it’s too late!!”

Especially as there are only a few remaining places left according to the page header. Which is as trustworthy as the recently joined pop-ups, and as trustworthy as the man behind Digital Altitude, Michael Force.

That dude is a piece of work, even amongst unscrupulous internet marketers.

If Empower were still alive, it’d be a tough call as to which one, Empower or Digital Altitude, is the true network marketing business of Satan. Given a little more time, I think Digital Altitude could eclipse even Empower: it is, essentially, the bastard offspring of a union of MOBE and Empower after all.

Not that daddy MOBE is too happy with junior as I’ve said.

So, if you’ve surmised that I won’t be endorsing Aspire Today, then you surmised right: close the page, erase your internet history and all browser cookies. Close your eyes tightly and try and will yourself to forget you ever saw the page.

A page that it’s hard to escape from, as every time you move your cursor toward the top of the screen, and look like you might be attempting to do just that, you get hit with an exit pop-up extolling you to stay.

When it looks like you really might make it the to top browser bar, you get hit with another pop-up asking if you want to join for $1 only!

When you hit “No” you get taken to a page basically saying, “Okay, how about for nothing then?”

Yup, they’re that desperate to snare you in.

Probably because you’re going to find it hard to leave and discover that regular $37 monthly fee extracted from your account one way or another anyway.

Digital Altitude is another product pyramid scheme, that focuses on recruitment and selling its overpriced shit to those it recruits, in the hope that they can then do the same and get those much vaunted “big ticket” commissions… from selling vastly overpriced training on how to sell the training.

There’s ways of making money online – and you could do it with Digital Altitude – but you’re very unlikely to, and you’ll have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to try.

Frankly, that’s not a bet I’d like to make with my $30k. Yup. Read my full review of Digital Altitude to get the breakdown on what it’ll cost you, and your chances of getting it back. There’s not much more I can say on DA in this piece without repeating myself.

Except to say, don’t believe the amateur sales video gracing Aspire Today’s page that looks like the work of an extended Fiverr gig.

If you want to make some money online then checkout Wealthy Affiliate. It’s not some pyramid edifice, it teaches an actual method, and a method that doesn’t try to upsell on add-ons that cost $$$$. You get all the tools you need – unlike Digital Altitude – and it costs a fraction of the price to join. You can read my review here.

Check it out and do see if it’s for you – again unlike DA, you don’t need to plug in your credit card details to get access to the free week of membership. That right there should tell you a great deal.

But like I say take a look-see.

And stay away from Aspire Today.

You’ll aspire, but you’ll fall flat on your face, with your pockets turned out.

UPDATE: On 1st February 2018, Digital Altitude was shutdown by the FTC.

    Well, out of all the scams I’ve seen, this one is one of the “best”. Most scams at least provide some sort of information (even though useless mostly), but this seems different. One page and links that link to nowhere? I bet somebody worked hard to achieve that! And the classic “get rich quick” promises… Priceless!
