I don't remember how exactly I fell into this site. Then I started getting mails from Bruce Castro. This site had a lot of things to sell and I thought I joined it because I felt I can really convince my site visitor to buy these products without much problem.

I even managed to get in one downline affiliate to the site. Then I checked in to check my bills. The page did not show up. Rather some irrelevant page showed up. I thought it was something by mistake and the mistake would soon get over.

But then, I realized that each time I tried to check my account balance, the same thing showed up. I mailed to Bruce directly. He said it was all very clear to him, and it was I who was having a problem.

Then I mailed to my Downline member. Even she was not convinced with the working of the Network. I am not a big time Home Business Entrepreneur. But then, I can just guess one thing about what they are all about. Get in all affiliates and use their resources to make their own sales.

I had a similar problem with pages loading. I received error messages when I clicked on the links from my own page. I needed to check and change my link page. This was rather aggravating but I ended up going to my back office then I clicked on the Marketing Basics. When I loaded that page, I clicked on http link on the left hand side of the page that says "Click Here for Complete Details"(under the paragraph that says "All Solutions Services" with the black backround). After that page loaded, I copied that link for my referral page. I've recently wrote up a promo on my blog with the other link. I had to change that. The only link that worked on my original referral page was the sign up page! Luckily I caught that error. It is definitely not our problem. It is a problem with how the cgi is set up.
I am going to write Bruce Castro about the problem. I am not very versed in programming language. All I know is that I don't want to endorse a page that does not work for potential members.
The concept of this network is really a good idea. The All Solutions Network has been around for awhile. It must be working some how! Thanks, Becky [freemoney-team.blogspot.com]

I'm the owner of the all solutions network.
Becky has it right.

Unfortunately there have been occassional server problems and script issues. They rarely last for more than a couple hours.

Our technicians have done a substantial rewrite of scripts and we have just changed servers.

Although, nothing is ever perfect, this problem seems to have been substantially laid to rest.

I haven't experienced errors on my referral page, but I haven't seen any money either. There are 85 members in my downline & no one is making a dime. What gives?
 4th of Aug, 2009 by   bruce castro 0 Votes
Unfortunately, this member didn’t take the time to read any of his training emails or his resource center. Otherwise he’d be spending his earnings rather than complaining.

The All Solutions Network system is so simple that anyone that follows it earns money. Even if they follow it for 5 minutes and then forget about it. They still get paid.

It’s so easy that we get letters like the following all the time…

Who r u? & y did u send me $?
My response is always the same…
You signed up for a free money making website and “accidentally” earned a check. Imagine what would happen if you actually tried!

On the occasions that a member says he didn’t get any checks, it is ALWAYS for one of 2 reasons.
1. It’s not yet payday.
2. They didn’t take the time to earn any points, usually because they didn’t read the resource center.

See… from the ASN “resource” center.
The first step to earning a check is that your site accumulates points. See claim your check. This can be done for FREE and within 5 minutes. Remember, If a member’s site does not earn any points, it does not earn any money. But points can always be earned for free.

No company makes earning money or building a downline easier or faster. A large downline can equate to huge incomes… but only if the member and their respective downlines are actually participating in the system i.e. personal use, marketing products and services and earning points, all of which can be done for free.

Earning the Fast Start Bonus requires 4 points
At 8 points, you earn the Fast Start AND Eagle Bonus.
At 15 points, you earn the Fast Start, Eagle and Group Bonuses.
Group Bonuses, which is when you, also, earn from your downline, requires 15 points.
15 points can be accumulated without spending a dime and can be done within 10 minutes. Please see “claim your check”, for additional bonuses.

How easy is it really?
Get a free insurance quote and you earned a check.
Get a free Credit Report and you earned another check, etc…

If this member didn’t earn any money it’s because he didn’t follow directions.

My question is are any of the QUICK MONEY links worth chasing? The opportunity to make some fast cash by filling out a few forms would seem to be so popular as to break any company trying this method of promotion. Also, Bruce if you are listening, is there any proof of income from anyone's personal testimony?

Sounds good, but I think I will stay on the sideline until I see some tangible income results!
 13th of Nov, 2009 by   bruce castro +1 Votes
One of the biggest misconceptions re the Solutions Network is that it's about QUICK MONEY. It is not.
It's about real, tangible, reachable opportunity.

It is true you can earn faster than any company that I'm aware by taking advantage of quotes, services and just doing what you would normally do. But that is not what careers are made of. The ability to make money right away is just the starting point.

Careers are made by following the entire system i.e...

CLAIM YOUR CHECK-- which allows you to earn from $100 to $500 within the first hour. (we pay 6 times per month so you have to wait for the subject pay cycle).

PERSONAL USE-- do what you always do, buy what you always buy, even from the same company, but just buy it from your site. Doing so always insures that you have a check.

MARKET SERVICES-- we offer MANY financial services ranging from CREDIT REPAIR to MORTGAGE NEGOTIATION that pay you commissions ranging from $10 for a credit kit to $1, 500 or more for a closed home loan.

BUILD A DOWN LINE-- you have the ability to GIVE AWAY THIS FREE OPPORTUNITY TO EARN MONEY... Just follow the system and when you do, you earn from the purchases, sales, quotes, trials, services from every member of your down line through 10 levels.

Again, this is not about quick money. Claiming your check, earns money right away but the real money is when it is treated like a true business... WHICH IT IS. And like every TRUE business, the real money takes time. This is not get rich quick.

What's so different about us is that you can choose what you want to do, which programs you want to push and consequently the kind of income you ultimately earn.

Like any true business, you get what you put into it.

But first and foremost, you must understand the system and that requires about an hour or so OF ACTUAL READING. VIRTUALLY EVERY COMPLAINT THAT WE HAVE EVER HAD WAS FROM SOMEONE THAT DIDN'T ACTUALLY READ THE SYSTEM.

There's an old saying... "If at first you don't succeed... read the instructions" :-) Nowhere is it more true than with ASN.

AND YES I'M LISTENING! :-) we DO have testimonials.
We have more testimonials than we can post. I don't think I'm allowed to put an URL here, so all I will say is that if you join for free and go to your resource page, there is a link that sends you to our testimonial page with scores of unsolicited testimonials.

PLEASE! Read Your Resource Page! :-)
Your pay cycle hasn't arrived. IT’S NOT PAYDAY.

Infinity Bonuses are paid on the 28th of each month, in this case today.

No company makes it easier to earn, but you MUST follow the system. To follow it you must understand it. To understand it you have to take 15 minutes to read it!

PLEASE SEE FROM YOUR RESOURCE PAGE.
We pay on about the 10th and 28th of each month.

Group Bonuses-- On or about the 5th of each month we pay Group Bonuses for Business Generated by your Down Line Group in the previous month. i.e. You are paid on the 10th of March for Purchases and Sales made in February.

Infinity Bonuses--On or about the 28th of each month, you are paid The Infinity Bonuses i.e. Fast Start, Eagle, Bronze, etc for the prior month's business activity i.e. You are paid on the 28th of November for Business Generated in the month of October.

Sales Commissions-- You are paid on about Wednesday for sales made in the previous week, up to and including Sunday i.e. a sale is made or loan closes on Friday, you will be paid the following Wednesday. A sale or Loan Closes on Monday, you will be paid 2 Wednesdays, hence.


Our system is a bit complicated. It may not always be the easiest to completely understand, but is by far the easiest to make money. Following are the basics of what you need to know…

The best advice I can ever give is “take it one step at a time”.

We give you a huge amount of information, but all you really need to do is…

1. Go to claim your check. Take advantage of ANY free service. This earns points and locks in your first paycheck. The more points accumulated, the more you earn. 4 points equals the fast start bonus, 8 the eagle, 15 the group bonuses which earns you from your downline. The best thing to do is to immediately get your 15 points. You can do it for free. It will take less than 15 minutes and you immediately earn the Fast Bonus, Eagle Bonus, and Group Bonuses.

2. Make a habit of going to your site for your personal shopping. Buy what you always buy, even get it from the same store you always use i.e. walmart, amazon, best buy, etc… JUST BUY IT FROM YOUR SITE. This saves you money and assures that you always accumulate points so that you have checks coming, AT LEAST, every month.

3. Start building a downline by following the fast start guide.

It really is that simple. Make a habit of doing these 3 things and you will ALWAYS HAVE AN INCOME.

I am directing this to Bruce Castro. I noticed on the complaints that people have sent you, you always had an answer. Either they did not follow directions, or it was not yet payday. I am sure that you are going to find yet another excuse, but these are your words, you said to get a free credit report and I would get a check. Well, here's proof that I got my credit report and the only thing that I got for it, which you will see on the bottom of this mail, is a rebate for $300 in gas and $300 in groceries. When I tried to get that, it was so complicated that I could not even get that. I have hungry people over in Africa, who are on my downline, that I told would get paid. They have done the same thing that I have done. What am I supposed to do, lie to them, like you lied to me? I am a person with a handicap, I have had two heart attacks, and I was depending on something like this to help me out since I cannot work any more. You did not even have the decency to write me back when I have wrote you three times. Not even my sponsor had the decency to write me back. Please give me an answer and let me know what other excuse you are going to come up with. Here is my code number AC21795 and let me see that this thing is for real. I will send this copy to my attorney who will be checking you out also, because they are always looking for scams like this. It is a shame tht you are taking advantage of handicapped people, you should have never let it get to this point, all you had to do was write one letter. Don't run and hide, because I am going to have to tell my downline the truth.

This is directed to the above poster whose ASN ID is AC21795

LOL! Yes, I do have an explanation... YOU DIDN'T READ THE PAYDAYS!!!
You've earned the Fast Start and Eagle Bonus... BUT YOUR PAYCYCLE HASN'T ARRIVED!

I just searched for your activity. Here it is... Note the date?
Date: 11-25-2009
Personalid: AC21795
Email: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Company: information through Credit Diagnosis

As explained on the post THAT IS DIRECTLY ABOVE YOUR COMMENT (which you apparently, also, did not thoroughly, read), AND ON THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF YOUR RESROUCE PAGE...

Infinity Bonuses (which is what you've earned) are paid on about the 25th to 28th of the month following the activity!

AS TO EMAILS.
I never delete emails, just for such an occasion as this. I searched my entire database of emails and found 5 from you. The last on 11-14. None of the emails were in the nature of a complaint. All were answered.
If not for my respect for your privacy I'd place the emails and my responses on this board.

I receive and answer anywhere from 50 to 150 emails a day. I probably miss some, but try to get to all of them. I will not say that you did not send me 3 emails since 11-25, when you earned your bonuses. I will, however, say unequivocally that they did not get to me.

REGARDING THE FREE GAS, GROCERIES AND VACATIONS CERTIFICATES.
I won't comment on any perceived complexity. All I will say is that members take advantage of these every day... without comment or complaint.

APOLOGY?
I don't expect one, but you owe me, the network, the members and yes, EVEN YOURSELF AN APOLOGY.
This unwarranted, knee jerk comment and complaint does a disservice to you and the thousands of ASN members that are working hard to build and shre legitimate, no investment businesses.

NOTE: In spite of the unwarranted complaint, you will still receive your bonuses and you are more than welcome to continue working and earning with ASN.

BUT PLEASE READ YOUR RESOURCE PAGE SO THAT YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR PAY DAYS!

These complaint-filled posts are making me nervous as I am in desperate need of work from home employment. I was hoping to join the mortgage finance part of your business, Bruce; however, if all of these complaints...including on the 'Ripoff' site, are legitimate, then I'll need to obviously look elsewhere.

Bruce, I did send you an email about three weeks inquiring if the Mortgage side of your business is a 1099, or a W-2 position, however, I never did hear back from you.

On that same note, last night I tried signing up for your Mortgage home business, however, the $50.00 option was not available, only the $175.00 was the sole choice.

Be that as it may, I don't know what to think at this point. Up until I found all these complaints, I had credit card in hand.

What about it, Bruce, do you have enough encouraging words to get my credit card out again? I truly do need a work from home situation, however, I cannot afford to get involved in a scam, either.

ENCOURAGING WORDS? NO, ONLY FACTS
You are concerned about having seen complaints. What is surprising is not, that we have complaints. What’s surprising is that there aren’t more. Look for complaints against any company that you already know and trust, you’ll find complaints. Many more than you’ll find against us. We have over 100, 000 members. Our ratio of complaints to public exposure is better than any company I know. I hate to have any, but if you are in business, you get complaints. Period.

FIRST
I get over a hundred emails per day and miss some. Sorry about that.
However, I think that your implication that my not answering your emails is somehow an indication that we are a scam is a bit illogical. Actually, I think that the fact that we don’t prioritize and search for emails that would probably produce immediate income, is more an indication of NOT being a scam than anything else.

REGARDING your statement
“On that same note, last night I tried signing up for your Mortgage home business, however, the $50.00 option was not available, only the $175.00 was the sole choice”.
As happens with so many members that end up complaining prematurely, (not that a change in what we offer would be grounds for a complaint), you simply didn’t look close enough. After you hit submit, you are taken to a page that has 2 separate options for deposit. It has not changed for over a year. What you were looking for is there.

REGARDING…
Up until I found all these complaints, I had credit card in hand.
I hope you read the responses as closely as you read those mostly bogus complaints.

SECOND
You mention the rippoff report. You have no way to know this but they are the biggest ripoff on the internet.

First off, the rip off report is being investigated by the federal govt for numerous RICO violations. They accept ANY complaint (regardless of veracity), post it, will not remove it even at the request of the complainer, (after communicating with some of the complainants and the member, seeing that they were, in fact, misunderstandings, they tried to have their statements removed-- the rip off wouldn’t do it), and then these scammers, extort the companies that have non removable eternal complaints against them.

They have a program called “corporate outreach”, or something similar. They try to charge thousands of dollars to place a note next to complaints, saying “this seems to have been a simple misunderstanding”.

They offered us this “option”. We declined. For about $10, 000, we’d look pure as the driven snow. However, I don’t succumb to cyber extortion.

I could provide hundreds of links to complaints against the rip off report (how ironic!), but just this one link should get the point across…
http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/rip-off-report-c164257.html

THIRD
Re these complaint filled posts.
Please look at not only the complaint but the response.
Many are complaints from those that “wondered” if there was a problem because they had not yet been paid. In many instances, they didn’t earn anything. In other cases they actually DID earn something, but then complained before the pay cycle had arrived.

Specifically, one of the recent complainers on this board complained IN NOVERMBER, for having not gotten paid for NOVEMBER activities. Most people would realize that you can’t pay for all the activities of a particular month, at least, until the month was over.

He got paid precisely when he was supposed to, but apparently forgot to post an apology.

WE HAVE MANY MORE UNSOLICITIED TESTIMONIALS THAN WE HAVE COMPLAINTS.
For a few please see http://allsolutionsnetwork.com/ASNTestimonials.htm

Having said all the above, are we perfect? No. Has there ever been a legitimate complaint? Yes… Unfortunately, no matter what you do, you get complaints and there are occasional things that fall through the cracks. But when in business, there is no avoiding the occasional misstep. There is no such thing as perfection.

The bottom line is that, yes there are negative reports. And on any negative reports that I’ve been made aware, I’ve given pretty detailed responses. But more than that, if you look for complaints against any company that you already know and trust, you’ll find complaints. Many more than you’ll find against us.

We have over 100, 000 members. Our ratio of complaints to public exposure is better than any company I know. I hate to have any, but if you are in business, you get complaints. Period.

Of the complaints that I’ve seen, many weren’t even us. 2 were fired loan officers. One for trying to fund fraudulent loans, one for smoking crack in the office restroom. Most were simply misunderstandings. I’m not saying we are perfect. But we do try for perfection.

As to complaints of members not getting paid? Again, anyone who EVER earned a check… GOT A CHECK! Unfortunately, a few members were so “smart” that even though we tell them to READ THIS ENTIRE COLUMN FIRST, (the column that explains how to get paid), they don’t. They never took the time to understand what was required to earn a check. Or even took the time to understand the pay periods. We pay 6 times per month with different pay cycles for different activities. The fact of the matter is that some members have gotten confused and complained before they were scheduled to get paid.

AT LEAST 2 OF THE “COMPLAINTS” ON THIS BOARD FALL INTO THAT CATEGORY.
If we were a rip off, we’d probably be charging, at least, something for the websites. And if we actually did not pay members that HAD earned checks, you would see hundreds of legitimate complaints from those who earned checks and WERE NOT paid, rather than the VERY FEW that didn’t get checks because they either did not read and understand what was required or because they are disgruntled employees making multiple postings because they thought loan fraud and drugs were appropriate in our work environment.

Earning money with ASN has ALWAYS been more than just making money by signing up people for free. It has never worked that way—but a few people NEVER read far enough to understand that.

When there are charges for joining, (which with us there are not), if you have a lot of signups, you earn an income. We have no charges or monthly fees at all. So, ultimately, income is and always has been earned by the creation of business volume. Whether from taking advantage of free offers or buying from their own site and/or marketing services.

Amazingly enough, being free led to a few problems.

One more thing. You’ll notice most complaints are either old, from a time when the system was VERY complicated or were the result of people posting because they were CONCERNED (like your post), because of the complaints that were made, when the system WAS VERY complicated…

The system as of 11-08-08 had been completely revamped to make earning money easier and simpler.

In the past (notice in the time period that most complaints originated), Many people didn’t earn checks because the idea of using their own site, hadn’t sunk in.

Now, there is EVERY incentive to use your own site. The new programs have only been in affect since 11-08-08 and there has been dramatic rise in personal use, which translates into business volume, which translates into income.

There are always complaints in business. All any company can ever do is to
minimize them.
resolve them.
and when necessary explain them.

As an Online business Owner and web designer I know the importance of Online user Friendliness. Bruce just from a business end of things, all the websites that are a part of your program are clustered, and full of distracting contrast with odd colors and very long extended pages. This reminds me of what Creditor do to trap people into contracts, they fill the fine print with technical jargon and VISUAL CONFUSION in hopes that the information that is really important is not read let alone understood. I don't know if this is purposeful or not on your site but I made the same observation at least on the contextual end of things.

I can only say honestly that this may be why so many people on the above post are having trouble finding the information that you claim is posted and why they "DIDN'T READ" what you know is there. You have to change the format of the web pages, have uncluttered text, have more order and direction you know Smooth the Edges my friend. I would give all my suggestions to you for free if you like as a web designer.

Bruce, If I was to be an active member could I create a site that addresses the visual confusion and provides a Real SOLUTION to the obvious?

Thanks

Hi, Bruce, The first thing I want to do is wish you a very happy new year, and much prosperity to you in the upcoming year.

I was so glad to see the way you made changes in the allsolutionsnetwork, making it so much easier for even a person like me, who has a handicap and has dyslexia. If I can understand this now, I think anyone should be able to understand your changes. I also would like to apologize to you and the staff and everyone in the allsolutionsnetwork for the letter that I wrote you last month. I believed that this system would not work and I thought you were only making excuses all the time because many of the other companies that I had been in were nothing more than scams, and I was getting sick and tired of being scammed. This is one company that I can honestly say really works. I was surprised to get this in PayPal and I wanted everyone to see it. Once again, I am asking for your forgiveness for what I said to you and everyone. Now I can reach out, knowing that I can help People over in Africa and India, and knowing that they can learn to help themselves. You know the old saying, you can give a man a fish, and he will eat for a day, but you can help and teach a man to fish, and he will eat for a lifetime. As long as I am in the allsolutions network, I will tell as many people as I can and also be able to show them what I got through PayPal. Have a very happy new year to you and your family and to all the staff at allsolutionsnetwork. There is nothing like eating humble pie! God bless. Albert

I would like to add my 2 cents. I joined the All Solutions Network on November 16th. As with so many looking to make money online, I was skeptical about this program but decided to give it a try since it was free. I worked hard at it and this month I was paid 4 times. Not huge amounts of money but I was paid. I believe that this month's efforts will beneift me even more when I get paid next month.

There are a few things that people need to understand. If you treat this like a business, you will benefit from it and get paid. You get what you put into it. I dedicate at least an hour a day to promote my business. If I can do more, I do. In the month and a half I have been with ASN, I now have almost 80 members on 3 levels. I still don't undertand everything yet but I am learning along the way by reading every page. Some of us need to read it a few times. It's hard to find a program online that is free to join and pays. This is one of them! And I'm doing this from Japan.

Something to think about. What other site owner would actually join a site like this and defend his business day after day? I don't know of any scammers that would put the time in to do that. Most scammers will take the money and run. But Bruce is here defending his business and I will join him. Also, he has answered all of my e-mails in detail that I have sent him. He answers more than my own sponsor. Just think of the hundreds of e-mails he must get and answers. How many other owners are readily available to his members?

In closing, a word to Bruce. I thank you very much for this opportunity. I'm in a serious financial situation and trying everything to get out of it. I'm looking for ASN to assist in that. However, I do believe that the site needs an overhaul like J Bomar has said. There is a ton of information on it that can be cleaned up a bit. I feel that so many people that join, quit because they are intimidated by all of the information and that should not happen. You have an awesome program that I believe can reach new levels if the site can be reconstructed. I believe if you step outside the box for a moment, look at your site and ask yourself, "can my 90 year old grandmother understand this if I tried to explain or present it to her?" If the answer is no, then you know what you need to do.

All the best to everyone in ASN in 2010!! Let's make it a banner year so we can all make the extra income that we are looking for!!

I have read all in this site, and would like to know the answer to 'how do the people in Africa use the $300 for petrol' or words to that effect.
As I live in Australia I would have the same problem if I received payment in kind, at least for hard products, software, books etc could be OK.
I am going to join for Free, and READ, as Bruce recommends, as I am 75 I will really try to understand, I have been using computers from the DOS11 days, so should manage.[lol]
I must agree with one post; in the fact that Bruce does seem to reply to many complaints and from past experience I know that a genuine! Rip of Merchant takes the money and runs.

I am a computer-illiterate "newbie". I accidentally found the ASN site around the end of January while I was looking for some kind of internet business opportunity. I am (or was) a RN who chose to leave the "rat race" of nursing for personal health reasons. No matter. The point is, I found the site and checked it out because it is FREE and I have (literally) no money to invest as I have been out of work since September.
I still don't know what a splash page is or how/where to put a banner or very much of anything else but after listening and reading what Bruce had to say about "just do it and do it in order", I have been trying to do just that. One thing I wish is that I could get a running total of successfully submitted point confirmations, just so I could know if I am doing it right. I'm not sure how many points I have accumulated.
One absolutely remarkable thing that happened was I learned to advertise!! I stumbled around with Safelistextreme, reading ads and accumulating "points", not really knowing what that meant. Apparently I did something right and got my site rotating on the list one late Thursday evening a couple of weeks ago. Yes, this ignorant newbie actually wrote an ad! I also yammered my best friend into signing up.
My family and friends think I am "losing it" because "if making money online were that easy, everybody would be doing it" . Well, who said it was easy? I have been working very hard just to learn and do all this stuff. I am a nervous wreck but every little bit of progress is a huge success to me. The very morning after submitting my ad to Safelist, I had several messages from Bruce in my emails, saying "Congratulations! You have a sign-up!" Yes, in about 12 hours time I had a down line of 7 (counting my girlfriend)! Now, two weeks later, I have 52 in my down line. And I'm still not sure of what I am doing. I also have some free coffee, a free credit report, a free bankruptcy manual and several reward certs for gas, groceries, trips, motels, etc. And haven't spent a dime yet, although I guess I will have to to redeem those certs. Probably won't though because I am, at this time, still broke.
So to those who are complaining, all I can say is do it the way Bruce says and it will work! I don't have a paycheck yet either, but I know I will get one. I still have to learn the other marketing techniques to get the more frequent paychecks but I am plugging along. Have managed to get some shortened URLS and am working with other traffic exchanges. I went to a search engine today but everything it said was "Greek" to me so I will go back to that later after I learn what all that jargon means. Have to learn how to work the social networks, too. I am sorry if this sounds more like a testimonial than a response to the complainers, but that is not what I really intended. I guess what I want to say to them is a saying I will borrow from the AA program: "It works if you work it, " Stop blaming others, just follow directions and you will get paid for your efforts. You will even get paid for others' efforts. So keep plugging! Good Luck and God Bless.
