What is facebeast? Is it facebeast or fakebeast?

A colleague of mine recently called me up and said, “Hey Christian, have you ever heard of facebeast?” My response was, “What is facebeast?” My colleague did not know either so we set about figuring out what it was and if it is something worth using to work from home.

What is facebeast (or should I call it fakebeast)?

This is a bit of a pickle to answer. In short it’s simply a training series that teaches you how to drive traffic to a website using facebook. But that’s not what they lead you to believe on their homepage.

What they do tell you on their landing page is that you will make money by doing something you do everyday: using facebook. I was actually a little creeped out by the videos on the site. We’ll get into that a little bit more in a second.

Their entire sales pitch seemed dishonest and quite frankly I felt like I was watching an infomercial at 2 o’clock in the morning.

What you actually get when you join is an immediate upsell pitch to a “free” product called Auto Profit Replicator which is a binary option trading software with a claim that it will help you earn $1500+ per day. It’s basically a gimmick that gets to to sign on with a binary option broker and that will cost you money.

What do binary options have to do with facebook? Not a thing. The owner of the site is just trying to make more money off of you by upselling you to another product that won’t work.

After you get past that gimmick plus another upsell for an “Elite Coaching Program”, you find a few different levels of training.  But it is nothing like what is purported on the home page.

Facebeast is not a money making scheme. There is no secret to making money on facebook, and if there was, facebeast does not tell you how. They simply offer training on how to drive traffic to an existing website.

If you decide to use facebeast’s training (which I don’t recommend) you will need a website to drive traffic to. I can show you how to create one for free.

So is it a scam?

On my initial visit to their site, there were several things that immediately tripped my scam’o’meter. The very first thing is that they show you some flashy screenshots for people supposedly earning upwards of $1000 per day.


This type of activity just absolutely screams “scam”.

What about the video testimonials?

Remember when I was saying that the videos creeped me out? Let me explain why a little bit more.

For starters they felt extremely scripted. It seemed like these were low paid actors who were handed a piece of paper and told to sell this product with gumption. It did not work.

Now, it’s not uncommon to script your videos, and frankly, it’s a good idea to. But usually when people are creating a genuine and honest review of a product they have written themselves it does not feel like it is scripted.

Then it dawned on me that the guy in the video capture below looked really familiar.


So I got to thinking about it and thought that I recalled seeing him on another site. I set to sleuthing about and found it. He’s an actor for hire on fiverr.com who sells video product testimonials.


That was the final nail in the coffin for me. I cannot recommend a product if they are going to trump up product reviews. If they are dishonest about that, my inclination is that they are going to be dishonest about a lot of other things, too.

The final verdict.

While facebook (and other social media outlets) can be a valuable tool to drive traffic to your site, I cannot condone dishonest behavior. If this product was marketed in an honest way, it might have some merit.

  1. hi Christian!
    Wow what a ridiculous product Facebeast is! A hired actor from Fiverr? like come on! There are a lot of programs out there with suspected fake testimonials but now you have just shown how fake they can be! And yes yo absolutely would need a website to begin with…..If Facebeast does not begin by helping you with that then what is the point? I do not need to pay $97 to learn how to create traffic with Facebook. It’s not like it’s that hard….And it does not even seem like Facebeast does that well to begin with so it would be a no from me.

    1. You’re right, Emily. Facebeast is pretty ridiculous. Even worse, they are dishonest. Facebook certainly is a valuable tool to drive traffic, but you are right. It’s not that hard to do. I understand some folks need training in how to do that but Facebeast is not the way to go.

  2. Hi.
    I am hearing this facebeast first time only which seems fake by name only. Moreover your review on this is very concise and honest. The contents of your websites are very praiseworthy . Gives a lot of information for the newbies .

    keep on..


  3. Haha! Man I love reading your stuff Christian! I’m always on the lookout for cool new ideas, but it seems like these help me get the best ideas of what not to do! It absolutely baffles me at times the things that people come up with to try and get money. $97 dollars for that? Are they serious? As always, thanks for the headsup!

    1. It’s my pleasure, Dallin. I’m really glad you’re getting something out of it. It baffles me, as well, how quickly someone will part with their hard earned money on some of this junk, but I honestly put the blame squarely on the shoulders of these unscrupulous marketers. If there was a way to make money by “just using facebook” we’d all already be bazillionares.

  4. WHOA…never even heard of this one & you totally got me with the hired actor!!!!! How lucky were you to recognize the guy!!!! Do you happen to know his name? Just wondering if I “googled” him, maybe it would lead to more”scams” to beware of. I have to admit to throwing away some $$$ that I couldn’t afford being desperate to find something legit. Well thanks for knocking another out!

    1. Hey Donna, I actually do not know his name. I just remembered seeing him and it was likely in another testimonial on another site. The problem is I investigate so many of these things that it’s hard for me to remember which one. I really wish that I could because I’d like to find the other product and link a review of that product to this one. I will probably go through my browsing history this weekend to try to find it but it could have been months or even years ago that I saw him. I have a pretty good memory when it comes to faces.

  5. There are so many scammers around…it can be so confusing. I know I have been conned once or twice. It is so important to do the research, before you spend the money. Thanks for sharing! Keep up the good work.
