What is Aspire Digital Altitude?

Aspire Digital Altitude, otherwise known as Aspire, claims to be a “done-for-you-business-in-a-box” that will get you earning a 6 figure income in 90 days. Don’t believe it for a minute.

Is Digital Altitude Scam?

In this article, I’ll show you that Aspire Digital Altitude is not about helping you make money. The true goal of Aspire Digital Altitude is to load up your credit card and suck as much cash out of you as possible.

Aspire is a Multi-Level Marketing organization that requires you to pay monthly fees and purchase products before you can sell them. This is insane.

A legitimate company does not require affiliates to pay for the privilege of selling their products.

Trapping someone into buying products is a massive red flag and a clear indication that Aspire and the Aspire products are worthless.

Michael Force.

Just about everything online about Michael Force, the founder of Aspire, begins with, “he was a US Marine.” What does that have to do with anything?

I’m a veteran too, but we’re not talking about combat here. We’re discussing whether or not you should trust Aspire with your money.

If you find yourself falling for Mr. Force’s soft-spoken style, consider this:

“. . .(Michael Force) made countless excuses, demeaned us and stole $10,000 . . .when we honestly did not have $10,000 to lose. . . .this was like a dagger to the chest at the time and we literally had to start from ground zero because of him. In the meantime, he was traveling to Paris with his family and basically living on our dime.” (Source:Ripoffreport.com)

But enough about Michael Force, let’s talk about Aspire Digital Altitude. And let’s start with the sales video. It’s a beauty.

The Aspire Sales Video.

Here’s something to keep in mind when you’re watching a sales video. The longer the video is, the less valuable the product. Plus, the deeper the pitchman is trying to set the hook, and the more it’s going to cost you.

The longer the sales video, the deeper they’re setting the hook!

If a product has true value, the pitchman can just let you try it for free. If you like it, keep it and pay for it. If you don’t like, you haven’t lost a dime. A legitimate product does not require a long video telling you how great it is.

Burning Money with Aspire Digital Altitude

With a legitimate product, you can see the value yourself.

But, with a product that does not have value, the pitchman must get you emotionally excited to buy it and then lock you into the purchase. That is what Aspire does.

It is difficult to cancel your membership with Aspire.

According to the Aspire terms and conditions, before you can cancel your membership, you must first request an exit interview with an Aspire coach.

Do you really think they are going to let you go once they have your credit card number? Not as long as they can keep charging it.

“I signed up with Aspire to teach and assist me with starting a home based business on-line. It took several months to realize this company’s courses and coaching have much to be desired. After spending $6,200.00, . . .I have nothing to show for the money I spent. This has been a horrible experience for me and my family.”(Source: ripoffreport.com)

Aspire and Wealthy Affiliate.

Compare Aspire to Wealthy Affiliate. They both claim to help you make money online. While Aspire might only cost $1 to get started, you will be required to pay that $1 with a credit card.

This small expense will be followed by a relentless parade of upsells that ultimately lead to a product that costs nearly $20,000!

On the other hand, Wealthy Affiliate is free to try, no credit card needed. Try it. See if you like. If you find it valuable and helpful, great, stick around. If not, you haven’t lost a dime.

Of the two, which do you think has real value and will actually show you how to make money online?

Aspire Digital Altitude Review.

In a nutshell, Aspire Digital Altitude has some serious issues.

  1. It has horribly overpriced upsell products.
  2. You must pay a monthly fee to be an active affiliate.
  3. You must buy a product before you can sell it.
  4. It’s a Multi-level Marketing (MLM) organization, otherwise known as a Network Marketing organization. Read my article “The Heartbreak of MLM.”
  5. Advancement in Aspire is highly structured, controlled and expensive.
  6. The Aspire compensation plan is complex and difficult to understand. You’ll probably never know if you’re getting paid what you earned.
  7. If you want to leave Aspire, you must have an “exit interview” before you can cancel your membership. (Creepy like a California cult).

The Cost of Aspire Digital Altitude.

You can clearly see the progression from a small initial buy-in to astronomically expensive levels.

  1. $1 for a 14-day trial.
  2. At the end of the trial, you will be billed $37 and continued to be billed at that rate each month. From there you will be encouraged to buy higher levels of membership.
  3. Hiker Membership Level is $67 a month.
  4. Hiker, plus Climber Level is $127 a month.
  5. Base level is a one-time fee of $397.
  6. Rise level is a one-time fee of $1497
  7. Ascend level is a one-time fee of $6,997
  8. Peak level is a one-time fee of $11,997
  9. Apex level is a one-time fee of $19,997

These levels are the very same overpriced make-money-online products you will be selling with Aspire. People don’t need these products and they don’t want them.

The only way you can sell this junk is to get people emotionally excited and convince them they can make a lot of money if they buy the Aspire BS.

In other words, you’ll have to lie to people if you want to sell Aspire products.

That’s a stupid way to try to make money online.

Digital Altitude Reviews.

Anyone singing the praises of Aspire Digital Altitude is an affiliate. They are trying to get you to join through their affiliate link so they can make a huge commission.

They are trying to sell you down the river for a few pieces of silver.

The First Rule of Business.

The first rule of business is to stay in business.

If you spend thousands of dollars up front with Aspire, you won’t be in business very long, but you’ll be paying the credit card bill for months if not years.

The Truth about Making Money Online.

Making money online is very simple. It doesn’t cost a lot to get started, but it does require sustained effort. In other words, it takes work, but not hard work.

Making money online is a lot easier than a dead-end job.

In the beginning, the challenge is that you have to create content for your website before you make money.

Content is what brings people to your website. The more people you can attract to your website, the more money you can make.

However, it might take months for people to find your site.

It is in the gap between writing content and seeing results that most people quit.

There are other ways to make money online too, but it begins with building a website and adding a lot of content to it. When it’s done right, making money online really is as simple as that.

The Last Word on Aspire Digital Altitude.

Don’t waste your money, time and emotional energy on Aspire. You’ll only lose money trying to push Aspire products nobody wants and few people can afford.

  1. A Facebook friend of mine is an affiliate who has made about $100,000 so far in 9 months I immediately assumed it was too good to be true and in my search for more clarity on the company I happened upon your site and you were spot on about the nature of her social media posts and her sales pitch. She’s used her profits to travel full time and everyone of her posts is an emotional diatribe about how she followed her dreams and found success and then at the very end a link to sign up. I always thought it was very bizarre but it was interesting and slightly unnerving to know that these posts are basically targeted manipulation.

    1. Hi, Joanna!

      You are right. I’m glad you saw through your Facebook friend’s manipulation. I seriously doubt she is making $100K. She probably has not even earned back the money she spent on Aspire Digital. In a few weeks or a month, she won’t be with Aspire Digital, because it is not a legitimate business model. Eventually, she will discover that it doesn’t work and is only taking her money.

      I’m convinced Aspire Digital is a pyramid scheme. I’m thankful you found my article before you got involved with Aspire Digital Altitude. It would have been a very expensive mistake.

  2. I signed to DA and had a sickly feeling this was all too “good to be true”. Smelling a rat I googled and found some negative reviews (like here) and then realised there was enough doubt to cancel my CC and ensure DA don’t charge me anything. Legit online businesses includes niche website building, driving traffic etc it takes longer but is sustainable and you’re not funding someone’s lavish lifestyle.

    1. Hi, Ray!

      I’m glad you saw the truth about Aspire Digital Altitude before you lost money. It is doubtful you would have ever made a dime with them. Statistically, it is far more likely that you would be talked into spending more and more money and never see a return on your investment.

      The Aspire Digital Altitude promise of making 6 figures in 90 days is nothing but hype. Aspire Digital is not designed to help people make money. It’s designed to trick the people at the bottom of the organization into giving lots of money to the people at the top of the organization.

      Building a niche website is a proven and inexpensive strategy for making money online. It does take time, but it is a realistic plan. You’ll learn more about online marketing when you build a website and drive traffic to it. Once you know this stuff, you’ll be able to reproduce your success over and over again.

      If you would like free training on how to build a niche website and drive free traffic to it, you might like to enroll in the FREE Online Entrepreneur Training.

      Thanks for stopping by. I’m so glad you dodged the Aspire Digital Altitude bullet.

  3. Hi Gary, I’ve never heard of Aspire Digital Attitude but the issues and the cost you mention from this company is so much of what exist out there in the web. I use to be involved in an mlm company, didn’t work out for me so I left. I used to look for reviews on money making companies and even if it sounded legitimate I would not consider it unless it sounded like something I’d want to get into like WA. I read different reviews about WA before joining. Thank you for this review.

    1. Hi, Rosa!

      Yes, Aspire Digital Altitude is a real stinker. It’s not about helping anyone learn how to build a legitimate internet business. It’s all about taking people’s money. For the cost of Aspire, you could get a masters degree in computer technology.

      Thanks for stopping by,

      Gary

  4. Gary,

    Wow… Aspire is definitely nothing I or anybody else should even look at. Thank you for letting me know, and I will definitely keep my audience away from it. There is no legitimate product on the internet that makes you have an interview to leave…. As far as I know. Thank you again for this complete review.

    Alan

    1. Hi, Alan!

      Aspire Digital Altitude is one of the worse scams I’ve found online. Michael Force is shameless to put such an operation together. If the exit interview wasn’t so damaging, it would be laughable.

      I wish more people would realize that learning to make money online is really simple. It should not cost very much to learn how to do it right. The biggest obstacle to building a online business is the time it takes to make it profitable. Because of the nature of the search engines, it can take months before a new business earns its first dollar, because of this time delay, many people think that making money online is difficult. It’s not. You just have to be patient.

      The formula for building a successful online business is well established. You can learn how to do it by going here. Just remember that it will probably take 3 to 6 months before your new business earns its first dollar, but stick with it because from that point forward the search engines will work in your favor and your income should increase.

  5. I never have heard of Aspire but those prices are ridiculous. Any program where you have to pay that much just to “make money” sounds like a pyramid scheme, where the people up top are making money from the people on the bottom. Do they even offer mentorship or training?

    Thanks for your article! Very informative!

    1. Hi, Daybe!

      I agree, Aspire’s prices are ridiculous. You asked if they offer mentorships or training. Aspire Digital Altitude does offer coaches and training courses, at least that’s what they call them. In fact, that is their product.

      Each level is more training and more coaching. The truth is, learning to make money online is that not complicated. It doesn’t require expensive training and coaching.

      The reality of Aspire is that their training is very limited and the coaches are actually salespeople who sale the Aspire member on the next highest level of training.

      Aspire is not really about teaching anyone how to make money online. The training is just an excuse to take people’s money. So the coaches keep the members excited about making big money online and while the member is intoxicated with dreams of wealth, the coaches convince them to charge more to their credit card.

      This cycle of getting members exciting and charging the next level of training to the the member’s credit card continues until the credit is maxed out or the member realizes he or she is getting royally scammed.

      The internet is not an ATM with some secret code only a self-proclaimed guru knows and is willing to sell. The internet is communications. It connects anyone to everyone.

      Making money online is really about learning to use the internet to find people with problems and desires and then helping them solve their problem or fulfill their desire. It’s not expensive to learn how to do this, but it does require effort and integrity. Here’s a good place to learn.

      Thanks for stopping by,

  6. Hi,Really unique Great review,so bad how people scam others without feel any regret.yes, I agree with you this is the best platform to learn about internet marketing what you learn here is very valuable,I been here for a few weeks and I honestly recommend this training to any person who is trying to learn all about real online business.

    1. Hi, Angel!

      Thanks for stopping by. I think scammers like the people behind Aspire Digital Altitude might be sociopaths. How else could they ruin people’s lives for profit?

      I wish people looking to make money online understood that it isn’t complicated. They don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to learn how. Making money online requires a website, proper training and support, plus commitment, patience and sustained effort over time. None of these things cost very much money, if anything.

      It’s possible to run a 6 figure online business for less than $75 a month. Here’s where to learn how.

      All the best,

      Gary

  7. This Aspire is absolute nonsense.
    I personally am not a fan of MLM principally because I have been bitten pretty bad from one of them.

    This sounds exactly like what I had experienced and as you know the saying, ‘once bitten….’

    Anyways, I rather try out something that allows you to trial without getting your credit card all locked in.

    Your recommendation is something that I will try out.

    Thank you and keep exposing these scammers.
    Regards
    Roopesh

    1. Hi, Roopesh!

      You summed Aspire Digital Altitude up nicely. It is nonsense. Unfortunately, Aspire can ruin a lot of people’s finances and set back their online ambitions for years.

      Like you, I had some awful experiences with MLM and will never do that again. Very few people make money with MLM. Most people lose money and alienate their friends and family.

      Thanks for stopping by,

  8. Hi there! I’m very pleased to find this article as I received an email from a marketer the other day, containing the usual hype. I checked this system out as I hadn’t heard of it at that time.

    I have to say that the official site looked very convincing and It did grab my attention. After doing some research online and reading your review I’m absolutely amazed at how these people still get away with this stuff.

    I guessed that this might be a MLM system of some kind, but I had no idea that the costs would be so high! There is no wonder that people get into debt after getting involved with these programs.

    I have seen this kind of thing before, where members have to buy into the products before they are allowed to sell them. I think this really stinks!

    Thank you for sharing this and warning us!

    1. Hi, Andrew!

      Thanks for stopping by.

      I was impressed with the Aspire Digital Altitude website and sales video too. It really got me excited at first, but I dug a little deeper and the evil underbelly began to show. It’s insane to expect people to buy expensive products before they can sell them. Very few people succeed with MLM and I think a person would have to have a predator’s mentality to succeed with Aspire.

      I appreciate your insight.

      All the best,

      Gary

  9. very interesting approach to promote WA. Using scam all over then talking about other company’s false promises. My question on this can you get into legal trouble naming those company’s and have to prove they are scams? I agree there is tons of that. I would be afraid of lawsuits putting that out there. That’s just me. The site is layed out nice plus you made videos which is good gets attention. Very informative. Has this site led to traffic and sales?

    1. Hi!

      Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your compliment.

      You raise some good questions about if I could get in legal trouble for naming these companies. The short answer is I haven’t yet. Everything I write about these companies is factual with solid resources. Much of what I write about comes from the companies own sales material and Terms of Service.

      Some of these companies are so aggressive in stealing from people that it is difficult to overstate how corrupt they are. The truth is, I doubt a scammer wants the scrutiny of a lawsuit.

      Many of these businesses, like Aspire Digital Altitude change their name every few years because their reputation makes it unprofitable. Michael Force, the owner of Aspire, has been in similar businesses in the past. I expect in a year or two, he’ll abandon Aspire and resurrect it with a new name.

      All the best,

      Gary

  10. One of the most ridiculous scams I have come across – thanks for making us aware of it. $19,000 for an apex membership! What a con.
    Everything about this comes with a red flag, down to the credit card for the initial fee.
    Thanks for the informative, honest review – it is appreciated.

    1. Hi, TBonki!

      Yes, Aspire Digital Altitude is one of the worse. The only people making money with Aspire are the people on the inside of the scam.

      People who are searching for a legitimate way to build a profitable online business need to know that it doesn’t cost much to learn how. It takes time and effort, for sure, but it doesn’t cost much to learn. If you’re interested in building a profitable online business without spending a lot of money, I recommend my article The Best Digital Home Based Business.

  11. I think my previous comment was very general, and not related specifically to this page.

    I had not heard of Aspire digital before I read about it here. It certainly does sound like a scam and it’s unbelievable that people will pay this type of money for an online business – being South African and earning in rands it’s completely ludicrous to think that anybody will fall for it!

    Well researched with good information and recommendations.
    Do you continue to give people your support if they join WA through your website?

    All the best
    Shalene

    1. Hi, Shalene!

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. I’m pleased you enjoyed my website.

      Yes, Aspire Digital Altitude is one of the worse so-called businesses I’ve found online. It does nothing by prey on people. If someone joins Aspire Digital Altitude, they will be talked into charging the maximum on their credit cards and then left to hang in the wind.

      You asked if I continue to help people who join Wealthy Affiliate through me, yes, absolutely.

      I’m available to help anyone interested in building a legitimate online business whether they join Wealthy Affiliate or not. I highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate because it has everything anyone needs to succeed online, it’s affordable and there’s live support 24 hours a day. If you can operate a personal computer, you can build a thriving online business with Wealthy Affiliate.

      I’m active inside Wealthy Affiliate 12 to 14 hours a day, (US East Coast). While I take a keen interest in helping those who have joined through me, I help anyone who needs it. That’s the culture of Wealthy Affiliate. We all help each other. It’s a dynamic and generous community, and free to join.

      Thanks for stopping by,

  12. OMG – not another one!
    Just incredible. I hadn’t actually heard of Aspire Digital Altitude yet, but I can see where the “altitude” comes in – prices just keep going higher and higher hoping to suck in as much $$$ as they can.
    My face looks pretty much like that image in the video – wide eyed and in disbelief!

    … and, seriously, you have to arrange and have an “exit interview” before you get any money back – these folks should be reported!

    Thanks Gary!
    – definitely staying away from them

    1. Hi, Joanne!

      Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your comment.

      Yes, I’m afraid it’s another scam and a particularly nasty one at that! Apparently, greed knows no bounds. I have a hard time getting my head around how anyone can scam someone out of $20,000, but there you have it.

      You’ll do much better learning how to build a legitimate online business at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s free to start. Free is much better than $20,000.

      All the best,

      Gary

  13. Upsells up to $20,000 is a ridiculous amount of money no Online Business program should charge Gary, in this case alone Aspire is definitely not a good choice.

    Most MLM i’ve come across revel in upsell because members can earn more money and your upline can also earn more money from your hard work. Unless they are your investors, I don’t believe part of our profit should be given away for free. Excellent review as always man, I hope you can help steer away many people from falling to this scam. Cheers.

    1. Hi, Riaz!

      Thanks for stopping by. It’s good to see you again.

      Aspire Digital Altitude is one of the most greedy MLMs I’ve ever heard of. You are so right when you wrote that “our profit should not be given away for free.”

      I have a lot of criticism for MLMs, but it’s enough to know that they are the most inefficient business model imaginable. Plus, anyone who gets involved with an MLM must play by their rules. There’s a iron clad secret among con artists that you “never bet a man at his own game.” When you play by their rules, you’ll never win more than they will let you. If you win at all.

      When you play the MLM game, you’re betting you can win their game, by playing by their rules. It’s doubtful. With Aspire, it’s impossible.

      The reasonable way to build an online business is the same as building an off-line business. The same business principles apply. That is, bring value to the marketplace. Wealthy Affiliate is the best place I know of to learn how to do this right.

      All the best,

      Gary

  14. How on earth could anyone like this product/service. Aspire seems to be among one of the worst multilevel marketing schemes/pyramid schemes out there. They should shut it down and lock this guy up. $20,000?!?! That’s literally insane. No way. It reminds me of companies like Herbalife. Herbalife may not have a “forced” buy-our-products model, but they do make it very hard to get a sale and then the commission isn’t that great. I hate companies like these

    1. Hi, Wil!

      I’m with you all the way. I don’t see how people who create these monster schemes like Herbalife and Aspire Digital Altitude sleep at night. They clearly have no empathy for others.

      Two major red flags associated with Aspire are how they use greed to trap people into there scheme and then how, once you’re in, you must recruit others to succeed. Recruiting is a telltale sign of a Ponzi scheme. This is what has been the undoing of Herbalife.

      I wish more people would realize that it isn’t difficult to make money online. Wealthy Affiliate teaches a simple business model that works if you stick with it.

      Thanks for stopping by,

      Gary

  15. I don’t understand how MLM companies like this still exist. This just goes to show that we need more people like you to get these articles out there because clearly not enough people are aware of this kind of stuff yet. There needs to be more information going around. Scams like this are actually so gross to me – I don’t understand how people can run them and call them legitimate businesses! Thank you for this article – keep it up!

    1. Hi, Martina!

      Thanks for stopping by. I’m with you, I don’t see how companies like Aspire Digital Altitude can skirt the law.

      It seems to me that the search engines can filter these scams out. Maybe one day they will. Until then, the best we can do is get the word out, so if people take the time to do a little research they can save themselves a lot of heartache.

      All the best,

      Gary

  16. Like I always say (as you did as well) if you have to pay to try it, then its likely not worth it. I get multi level memberships but holy cow! 9 levels? $20k? Ha ha. Run away people, run away! If you have to buy the product as well then it should be a no brainer. I’ll be staying far away from aspire, far away.
    Jason

    1. Hi, Jason!

      Thanks for commenting.

      Yes, Aspire Digital Altitude is a real stinker. I can’t believe they are staying in business. These kinds of operations typically have a short life span. The sad thing is the owners simply open shop under a new name and do the same thing over again.

      Like you mention, if you can’t try it before you buy, it’s probably a scam or at least an expensive mistake. The other clue that an offer is not-legit is how they play the greed card. That is probably the oldest con in the world. If a scammer can get you to feel greedy for what they have, you’re hooked.

      And, like the Aspire Digital Altitude scam, once they hook you, they will pull you through the levels taking more and more of your money until you are tapped out at the $20,000 mark.

      I wish more people would realize that making money online is not complicated and it’s not expensive to learn. The principles of success are well established and anyone who can use a computer can succeed with an online business. The key is to build a business based on integrity and proven business methods. That’s why I recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anyone interested in building an online business.

      All the best,

      Gary

  17. Hey Gary Horton

    I honestly can’t believe that there are companies like Aspire Digital Attitude. $20,000 for a bogus product?! That is downright insane! People could spend way less on something that actually works. And in the long run they would be making way more money than that.

    I truly can’t believe that a scam of this proportion is out there. I won’t be surprised if people have actually have spent their life savings on this:(.

    Wealthy Affiliate is the online platform that everyone should be joining. You can join for free and still have great access to REAL information. More people need to know about this! Thanks for exposing how horrible Aspire really is!

    Keep it up:)

    1. Hi, Omar Sanchez!

      Yes, indeed, Aspire Digital Altitude has raised the bar in the world of MLM scams to new breath-taking heights of awful.

      I’m sure you’re right that there are people who have lost their life savings to the Aspire scheme. I’ve known people to mortgage their home for similar so-called “opportunities.”

      It takes a special kind of selfishness to scam people and a pathological personality to steal from them to this degree.

      The truth is, making money online is not complicated and it doesn’t have to be expensive to learn. A legitimate place to learn, like Wealthy Affiliate, will let you try it for free. There’s no reason to scammed.

      All the best,

      Gary

  18. This is obviously a scam. Anything that promises a six figure income in ninety days is a joke. So it something that charges you twenty thousand dollars so that you can make money. You should never pay that much money to make money, at least in the world of online business.

    1. Hi, Ben!

      You are so right. Any product that promises a six figure income in 90 days is a joke. I think the only way it works for Michael Force is that he’s able to sell the dream of financial independence. This is exactly how a Ponzi scheme works.

      I wish more people would realize that making money online is not complicated. It does take consistent effort, but it’s not expensive to learn.

      When I finally found a reputable place to learn how to make money online, it only cost me about $75 a month for the training and tools. Within a few months, it was paying for itself.

      The point I wish to make is that the earning potential of the internet is huge, but it doesn’t have to cost a lot to learn how to make money online.

      Thanks for stopping by Ben,

I am amazed how many scams are on the Internet and how little is being done to combat them other than warnings like you are doing here., Mozilla talked about web security as important for the future; the other surprise is the number of people who suffer because of scams. Do you have any thoughts on how the powers that be can monitor and act? Thanks for the alert.Better Luck next time.

    1. Hi, Courtney!

      It’s good to see you here.

      Like you, I’m constantly amazed at the infinite number of scams online. Aspire Digital Altitude is the most expensive scam I’ve come across. The Empower Network is a close second. The two appear to cross pollinate with members moving back and forth between them.

      I don’t know why the search engines can’t have a metric that de-indexes scams so people can’t find them. They have a metric for everything else.

      Thanks for stopping by,

  20. Wow, thank you for this post and this warning. The old adage is certainly true nowadays, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It’s sick that there are so many different scams out there who are ready to separate the gullible from their hard earned money. I never heard of this company and don’t know anything about them other than what I just read in your post. But it sounds like one to stay away from for sure.

    1. Hi, Mike!

      Aspire Digital Altitude works hard to get a prospect feeling greedy for making 6 figures in 90 days. Once someone feels greed they can’t possible make a logical decision and it’s easy for Aspire to reel them in. I’m sure that once a prospect becomes a member Aspire fans the flames of greed to sell them the more expensive levels.

      I agree with your perspective that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. To this I would add, that if the sales literature makes you feel greedy, you are about to be scammed.

  21. Hi! I also read the system of Digital Altitude and I have even availed the 14 days membership for $1. Honestly, I did not understand their system, and true, their monthly fee is too expensive for me. I was given a coach already but I was not able to chat with him. WA is better for me.

    1. Hi, Jonah!

      Thanks for sharing your personal experience with Aspire Digital Altitude. I’m with you, Wealthy Affiliate is the way to go for anyone who wants to learn how to really make money online.

      Aspire Digital Altitude violates an array of good business practices, but the worse violation is promoting outrageously expensive products that are not necessary. As I’m sure you have discovered in Wealthy Affiliate, making money online is not complicated. It does require education, a website, and support which you get at a fair price at Wealthy Affiliate without going into debt.

      Oh, making money online requires one more thing too, that is, sustain effort. Some people might call that work, but it’s not hard work. Making money online is a heck of a lot easier than working at a dead-end job.

      All the best,

      Gary

  22. Hi Gary,
    Thanks for writing an honest review about Digital Aspire. Many people have different opinions when it comes to DA because some of them really get extremely high commissions and the company did pay them. I was excited at first too, I thought I had found the gold mine. So I decided to give the $1 a try and had the interview with the 6-digit-earning coach. I was greatly encouraged to buy the Rise membership, if it is converted to my country currency, it is almost RM9000. After the interview, I thought about it for a long time, to tell you the truth, I was struggling about the ethics in doing online business, I felt this is not the way. I might earn a lot but the people I get into it might blame me for getting them nothing but the overly-priced digital products (the concept and theory are good though)which they can learn else where. I read a lot of reviews and lastly, I made up my mind to cancel it one day before the company can charge me for the monthly $37, I knew about the tactic of making it hard to cancel (have to talk to the coach), so I was smart to contact my bank and cancel my credit card. The bank sent me a new one. Yes, to that degree. I prefer doing something that is win-win for me and my clients.

    1. Hi, Jenna!

      It’s good to hear your first hand account of Digital Aspire. Thanks for commenting.

      Digital Aspire sales material is very convincing and had me enthralled in the beginning too. The truth is, no one can promise how much someone will earn online. While it is possible to earn 6 figures, it’s doubtful most people can get to that level in 90 days.

      It is always suspect if you have to go into debt to learn how to make money.

      Also, learning to make money online does not have to cost a lot of money. I recommend Wealthy Affiliate. It’s where I learned and continue to learn. I also recommend people who want to make money online commit to being a student of the internet. Wealthy Affiliate is an excellent resource to continue to learn too.

      Thanks for stopping by,

  23. Fantastic article and great video! I signed up with Aspire a while back just to see what it was about and felt a bit uneasy about everything so I searched online for some more insight and found some honest reviews like this one, thankfully this was before I had spent anything more than the $1 sign up fee. I’m so thankful for people like you calling things like this out as scams and telling the truth, without this lots more people would be buying into their marketing and making expensive mistakes.

    1. Hi, Sarah!

      Thanks for your first hand account of Aspire Digital Altitude.

      Any time a company uses greed to sell a product, you know it’s going to be expensive, but I have never seen a company charge so much for so little. Aspire is truly off the charts when it comes to taking people’s money.

      Learning to make money online is not complicated and should not be expensive. I recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anyone interested in making money online. It’s free to try and monthly membership is very affordable. Most of all, what Wealthy Affiliate teaches works.

      All the best,

      Gary

  24. It has scam written all over it, just from the price tag. Wow! I guess once you know he is a marine, that is supposed to compel us to sign up. Personally I don’t want to be any part of any MLM scheme. To me they are all scams. I personally love Wealthy Affiliate and am glad that I found them. It is the only way that I have found so far to really get started earning an online income.

    1. Hi, Matt’s Mom!

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Yes, Michael Force really tries to cash in on his Marine experience. When you realize he’s probably scamming a bunch of Marines too, it’s kind of sleazy. The military term is Scumbag.

      You are so right about MLMs. They force their members to buy their over-priced products. In my article The Heartbreak of MLM, I show how MLMs are thinly veiled Ponzi schemes. They might be legal, but they function the same as a Ponzi scheme.

      If someone wants to really learn how to make money online, based on rock solid ethics and proven business principles, I recommend they try the free starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate.

      All the best,

      Gary
