I am reviewing another modern advertising platform, one following the classic method of ad pakcs bundled with ad credits allowing members to participate in the revenue of the company. A trend lately and I predict that more and more similar companies will be born in the near future.
This is a result of the high demand, because people are looking for ways to make money online without having to work hard for it. And investing in these ad packs might seem like the easiest way to make a profit online but…it is the riskiest way as well. More on that in my conclusion

FAQs – More important details
What makes 154 pack unique is the Out Source Income. They have a team of professional traders who can earn a profit between 30% – 80% per month with a minimum risk.
You have to watch at least 80 ads before you cashout but you don’t have to click on ads as a requirement to make a profit except this one rule of 80 clicks.
Refunds are available for ad packs pruchases but not for membership fees. Another requirement is that you have withdrawn less than you deposited.
Active points need to be purchased in order to cashout. At least 10, and they cost 10 X $0.7 = $7. Purchased active points give you $0.01 per click per day.
Owners – domain
The domain was registered earlier this September but the owners are hiding their identities using the Whois Guard protection.
My personal experience – Why I did not Invest Yet (out of my pocket)
I have already analysed my methods in previous articles and I am preparing a mini guide as well gathering data from many programs.
In order to invest in a revenue sharing advertising company I have to be sure that they are paying. Because it is a risky investment and someone might end up losing money. I participate in more than 100 companies, imagine if I invested in all of them…
Although I am using 154 Pack since it was in pre-launch mode I did not proceed with a purchase. And buying ad packs in the early stages of a company is the ideal season.
First of all I could not find any partners to verify that the company was paying. Therefore I do not trust much of the HYIP monitors out there as many comments and withdrawals screenshots are fake. And of course even if one company is paying today no one can guarantee that they will continue to pay tomorrow or in a few months.
So I had to decide on my own. I tool a closer look at the ad packs / details. 154% maturing in just 31 days with 5% daily earnings are ROIs’ that are very appealing but are far away from reality. 154 Pack want to attract investors / affiliates but experienced players do not invest in 5% daily profits.
Another reason for me to stay away was the fact that the owners are hiding their identities. I wonder how they expect from people to invest without showing who they really are. I do not invest that easily, and with rev share companies using the ad credit model, transparency is the least customers should ask. Because these companies have nothing else to offer. No real retailable products, just a platform of traffic exchange and the opportunity attached with ad packs.
More importantly the first weeks I was watching closely the ads placed. Only a few of them repeating every day. For me this means that no one is interested in watching or placing ads, besides when you reach 80 clicks, watching ads is not even a requirement. Poor ad services and not many customers. The traffic exchange system was not giving any credits and free members are allowed to display only banner ads. There are better ad platforms so I had to proceed with caution…
Then I noticed that by clicking on the PTC ads I could easily reach the minimum threshold in a reasonable time frame. Additionally there was a bonus in the repurchase balance, $5 if I remember correctly. I was clicking on the PTC ads even in pre lauch mode and now I am very close to buy my first ad pack, without using money out of my pocket.
I will update the thread as soon as I have results but I am not expecting much success and I will explain the reasons…
154 Pack tries to impress affiliates with the Out Source Income disclaimer and with those PDFs published by Lucas Hones. Lucas and some other traders are supposed to trade (where?…) and make a profit for the company. Then this profit is shared with affiliates / investors.
But I do not believe that story…I can hardly understand the PDFs and definitely are not a solid proof that the company earns revenue from external resources.
For me 154 Pack is just another pure Ponzi scheme that is solely dependent on affiliates funds. These funds are being used to pay off existing investors and to explain the ROIs. I am sure that more than 98% of 154 Pack revenue is funds from affiliates investing in ad packs.
And that is a huge problem leading to an inevitable mathematical collapse, from the point that recruitment of new affiliates is slowing down. At that certain phase the onwers get the most of funds and go away, a few early investors that were able to withdraw earnings without problems might make a profit but the vast majority of participants, all lose money and the company disappears from the industry.
We have seen it happening thousand times, I am not predicting long term potential now either.
Only companies with real products for the retail market might ensure earnings and share profit. But these companies selling real products are not even interested in sharing profits with their members. What they mostly do is offering an affiliate program where affiliates can advertise them and earn commissions and the companies cut from their expenses as they do not need many sales reps in order to acquire sales.
If you want however to invest in 154 Pack please do not deposit more than you can easily afford to lose.
Update 02 Mar 2017
Cashout rules changed, you need to have active referrals or buy a filter for $20 to bypass the rule, worthless scam, this is why I never buy ad packs from suspicious programs like this one
How to Make Money Online
Revenue sharing is a method for lazy people, if you ask me. For those that want to invest, click 10 das daily and make money out of their recruited affiliates. And it is not a method I recommend because at the end even if you make money, someone else loses out. The only permanent winners in those schemes are the owners.
But if you want to build an online business with a long term potential I have good news. You need a website as a starting point. From there the sky is the limit but is a model where you have to put in the work.
That’s it, another review has finished, here on Web Market Support. I am waiting for your commentds and thoughts. Till next time, your online partner.
