Did you get an invitation to join Webtalk from one of your friends and want to get more information before making the decision? I guess you might have a lot of questions. What is Webtalk? How is it different from other existing social media platforms? Is Webtalk a Scam? Can I make money on this new website? Why should I join Webtalk? Is it worth my time?
I was in the same situation a few days ago when I was invited to join Webtalk by one of the peers at Online Internet Marketing University. Being a cautious person, I went to Google and did my research, reading many posts about Webtalk. As a next step, I’ve decided to join and try the platform myself, to get a first-hand experience with it.
Now I want to share the findings with you. In this review, I’ll explain:
- Special features of Webtalk compared to existing social media
- Generous affiliate program for all the users and for beta testers
- My final thoughts on Webtalk’s future income potential
What Is Webtalk?
Webtalk is a brand NEW social media platform that promises to combine the best features of Facebook and LinkedIn and to offer improvements where the other platforms have issues. Its SocialCRM (contact relationship management) and the news system are patent pending (check out https://patents.google.com/patent/US20170103134A1/en).
Here is a short video that explains the new platform and demonstrates some features:
The major improvement would be sharing the income with the members and I’ll talk about it in more details later on in this review.
Webtalk platform was built with the cutting edge technology over the last 8 years. It’s being released in stages, step by step revealing the whole vision.
After Beta launch in July 2018, the number of users grew at a skyrocketing rate. On October 6th, 2018, Webtalk reached a milestone of 1 million users in the Beta testing phase.
It’s worth to mention that Webtalk pledges to donate 10% of its profits to develop the countries where the revenue was generated. The donation will take the form of real estate investments to build new hospitals, schools, parks, and other community benefit facilities.
Who Are Webtalk founders?
Webtalk founders are RJ Garbowicz, Andrew Peret, Basit Hussain, Jeff Catherell and Jamie Pews.
Here is RJ’s bio, as published on his profile:
Webtalk’s Awards And Recognition
The new platform was noticed by major magazines. It’s already ranked as one of the 42K world’s most popular websites and the rank is climbing up in the global Alexa ranking about 1K every day.
During the Beta testing, you can join Webtalk by INVITATION ONLY. This is done in order to protect the platform from fake users and bad actors. If you are interested in joining, click here and use my invitation.
Why Webtalk? How Is It Better Than Facebook?
When I got the invitation to Webtalk, it caused me to think – what I don’t like about Facebook? What I’d like to be different? Here are several things that came to my mind.
Organizing the contacts into categories
Initially, my purpose of joining Facebook was to share my pictures and updates with the family and close friends. Later on, I added not so close friends and acquaintances as well, just to keep in touch. My friends’ list doesn’t include any current colleagues or people I don’t personally know.
Last year, I started to use Facebook to search for online business opportunities by joining various groups and chatting with many people. I had to say “no” to any friend request from the new contacts, as I didn’t want to mix business partners with my family. In my opinion, pictures of my kids are not supposed to show up on the news feed of my prospects, and I don’t want to see what they ate for dinner last night.
Ability to segregate family, friends and business contacts would be a great way to keep everything on the same platform.
What does Webtalk offer?
Organize your contacts as personal or professional – a combination of Facebook and Linkedin in one place. You can further refine the category inside professional contact as client, colleague, vendor, classmate and more.
For your personal contacts, you can choose from friend, family or acquaintance options.
In addition, you can add searchable tags and timestamped noted to the contacts, like company names, common interests and more.
When you come to post something on Webtalk, you can choose the right audience for each post, using the categories above. You also can make the post confidential, disabling the sharing option.
Here is a video that explains this in much more details:
Control the news feed
This is one of the major complaints about Facebook. Many people don’t like the choices that Facebook makes for them when it compiles the news feed and pulls in only the news from a small list of friends and groups. Recently, more and more ads are incorporated in the Facebook feed. Check it out – the second item is always an ad.
In my news feed, I only see the updates from the friends whose profiles I checked recently. Same goes for the new posts from my groups – I only see them from the groups I visited or posted in during the last weeks. Facebook thinks that you always want the more of the same.
Several months ago I was into Instant Pot recipes and my feed was full of pictures of the dishes made in this magic appliance. Last month I looked for online business opportunities, so my feed is overflowing with work from home job offers (unfortunately, most of them are pure scams), but no recipes at all.
The ads on the feed are picked from the same topics – blogging, affiliate marketing, leads generation etc. Facebook tries to match the ads with your recent interests, but it quickly becomes boring to see these very similar offers.
What does Webtalk offer?
What do you want to see in the new feed is absolutely under your control: chose to see new from personal or from professional contacts, add specific keywords, get only video posts – use various customization options to filter exactly what you want to see now. Change your choice as frequent as you wish.
How To Join Webtalk
At the Beta testing phase, you have to be invited to the platform by one of the current members.
Sign up for Webtalk
After you join Webtalk, you should set up your profile properly, otherwise, you won’t qualify for the affiliate program.
You’ll have to add a profile photo, fill out the “About Me” section, add information about your education and experience, choose several interests.
In addition, you must have at least 10 connections, be it your referrals or other people you know who already have joined Webtalk.
Can you make money with Webtalk’s affiliate program?
The promise of the Webtalk founders is to share up to 50% of the revenue with the members. Beta-affiliates will receive 10% of the revenue generated by 5 levels of their referral network for LIFE. The members that will join after Beta is closed will receive 10% on their direct referrals only.
Webtalk’s affiliate program is called SocialCPX. Learn more by visiting https://www.socialcpx.com/
In order to qualify, you need to have your profile completed, using the following guidelines:
Currently, Webtalk is in a Beta testing phase. It means that not all the planned features are already live. The affiliate revenue share program is not paying any money right now.
It will start paying out once the Beta testing is completed. If you are interested to join, better do it now, to get 5 levels of referrals. Here is my invitation link again.
How much money can you make with Webtalk?
Your total revenue will depend on several factors:
- How many users you will have in the referral network? It’s up to you if you want to put some efforts into bringing your friends, family and colleagues to Webtalk.
- Would your referrals be active in inviting more people and spending money on upgrades and products? Social networks have a potential of a super fast growth. In about 4 months, Webtalk has reached 1 million users. I think it’s quite impressive.
- How much revenue the company will be able to generate per average user. The sources of income can be advertising, premium user upgrades, transactions fees, selling products and more. This is something we can’t project right now. Probably, it will take several years to develop various income streams. What I already can see on the website is some advertising by GoogleAds. For now, it’s just one banner on the page and is not annoying.
As a sample, you can look at the following table. The assumptions are that each referral brings in 10 new members and the company earns $1 of monthly ad revenue per user.
Webtalk commissions payment options
Once the affiliate program is officially launched and you start earning commissions, you’ll be able to request a payment through PayPal, Direct Deposit or Webtalk’s Visa Payroll Card. The payments are planned to be made on monthly schedule, with a minimum amount of $100.
Does Webtalk have a mobile app?
As of October 2018, there is no working mobile app. However, Webtalk has plans of launching both iPhone and Android apps soon.
Does Webtalk have a Messenger?
Not yet, but on the founder’s profile, I see the statement that Webtalk’s EventWave – Events and Messaging app – is coming soon. As with the other promises – we’ll need to wait and see.
Is Webtalk a Scam?
You can join Webtalk for free, so there is no money to lose. There is no requirement to provide any sensitive personal information like a bank account or a credit card. I don’t see how Webtalk can scam you.
There is a risk of wasting your time in case the platform doesn’t succeed. But this is the truth with any type of business, right?
Final Thoughts On Webtalk
Webtalk is a brand new platform, currently in Beta testing phase. There is no way to predict its future success, as it depends on many factors.
There are several things that I like about Webtalk:
- The platform is built with a lot of thought about user experience and customization. The features of contact’s categorization and new feed control provide the option of using one platform for different types of connections, from family to business partners.
- Webtalk’s affiliate program is a rare find. Lifetime earnings of 10% revenue share from 5-tier referral network (for beta affiliates only) is a generous and lucrative offer. Many existing MLM companies would charge a monthly fee to let you in such a program. Webtalk offers it completely FREE.
- The marketing materials look professional and demonstrate a high quality (compared to some other popular programs, like myEcon, for example). Looks like the company takes everything very seriously.
- The founders are known and active on the platform, posting news and updates on a daily basis. A few days ago, I asked RJ Garbowicz a question and he replied in about two hours!
Till now, I’ve seen such owner’s engagement and availability only on Wealthy Affiliate platform.
What are the cons?
Webtalk is entering a saturated market of social media, with powerful competitors like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and others. It’s not going to be easy to win the race against them.
Even such a big name as Google announced on October 8th, 2018, that it’s going to shut down its Google+ service. If Google lost the social media battle, it can happen to any other player.
The bottom line
At this stage, Webtalk is similar to a lottery ticket – you can win a big prize or be left with nothing. The good thing that made my decision easy is that this ticket is given to you for FREE.
There is nothing to lose, except some time you might invest in building your referral network.
The upside might be very rewarding.
For these reasons, I decided to join Webtalk. If you agree with my conclusions, you are more than welcome to use my invitation link here.
