Howdy, thanks for dropping in on my unbiased review of the Stupid Simple System (AKA Affiliate Secret System)!
The creator claims that he’s handing you a 100% free stupidly easy system to make you money online.
And get this…
While he does ALL the work!
I dunno about you, but I think those are some pretty bold promises – ESPECIALLY coming from a WarriorPlus product inventor.
But does the dude really live up to his statements or would getting your hands on his system be a pretty STUPID move?
I decided to take a closer inspection, so come step into my office…
At a Quick Glance
Name: Stupid Simple System (SSS).
Owner: LJ Aviles.
Cost: Free + $100s – $1,000s in Upsells!
My Score: 4/10.
- It’s free (but that can also be debatable lol)
- Help & support
- Money-making potential
- No ‘Done-For-You’ squeeze page or email campaigns
- It doesn’t come with any training (unless you buy the upsells)
- $100s/$1,000s required for solo ads & opportunities
- The system mostly benefits the creator
In a nutshell; the Stupid Simple System is designed to make life easier for newbies to rake in big affiliate commissions via multiple streams of income…
Just by promoting ONE affiliate link and generating paid traffic to it.
But in order to earn BIG with SSS, you must also invest BIG, unfortunately.
This is why Aviles advertises his system as free – there’s a catch behind the scenes.
If SSS wasn’t so damn expensive and revolved less around “profiteering”, I probably would have given it a higher score.
Final Conclusion: Legit (But Not Recommended).
STOP! See my #1 newb-friendly recommendation that gives you the resources for earning a sustainable income via affiliate marketing.
Or option B: Try my top-rated ‘Done-For-You’ system (+ free training course) that can bank you 6 figures per year in commissions.
What’s The Stupid Simple System All About, You Say?
To be honest, the Stupid Simple System sales pitch is quite vague.
Because all you’re told is that SSS doesn’t cost you a cent, you can bank $100s daily (like the creator), and it works in 3 steps:
- Grab Your Affiliate Link
- Send Traffic
- You Get Paid on Your Referrals Upgrades & Traffic Investments
It all sounds pretty easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy, wouldn’t you agree?
But having already investigated tons of WarriorPlus products, like Print Monkey, Zero Hour Work Days, Eclipse, and Enigma, for example…
I know for a fact that turning a buck online isn’t a quick and simple process.
Because in my affiliate marketing experience, there’s A LOT more to this “money-making” thing than meets the eye.
It doesn’t matter what internet marketing strategy or magical DFY system that you choose to roll with…
It can take time, effort and money to scale an online business to $100s daily using the power of paid and/or free traffic methods.
But more importantly, it all starts with mindset because you must set big goals.
And then think and act like an “entrepreneur” to meet your goals and accomplish big success.
Trust me, I could easily ramble on about this personal development topic forever and a day.
But see the Overnight Millionaire for awesome insights from Wesley Virgin on adopting the right mindset to truly crush it online.
Let’s Pop The Hood of The Stupid Simple System, Yeah?
Annoyingly, LJ hits you with a bunch of upsells, right off the bat.
So why should you fork out $100s for products and traffic when you don’t even know HOW or IF the system works?
Wouldn’t it make more sense to set up your system BEFORE deciding to purchase any upgrades?
Unfortunately, that’s one of the biggest problems with these money-making products – you’re expected to invest blindfolded.
But once you skip the upsells, you’ll finally reach the members’ area.
Where LJ greets you with an 11-minute introduction to the basic SSS membership and walks you through the following steps to get up and running:
Step #1: Get Your Affiliate Link
This is pretty self-explanatory.
You simply head over to WarriorPlus to get approval from LJ for promoting his SSS as an affiliate.
Step #2: Get Fast Free Traffic & Leads
Basically, you’ll buy solo ad packages from LJ.
Where he’ll promote your affiliate link to 100s of his targeted email subscribers.
LJ’s traffic packages and prices are as follows:
Premium 100% Tier 1
- Bronze: 100 clicks = $90
- Silver: 300 clicks = $259
- Gold: 500 clicks = $425
Value 80% Tier 1
- Bronze: 100 clicks = $70
- Silver: 300 clicks = $199
- Gold: 500 clicks = $325
I dunno about you, but in my opinion, LJ’s packages are quite pricey.
Because if you go to the Solo Ad Testimonials FB group, there are some decent sellers offering tier 1 traffic at 0.50 cents (or under) per click.
(BTW, I discovered this from Fergal Downes inside his 24 Hour Profits product). 😉
So, for example, why pay LJ $90 for 100 clicks when you can save yourself a WHOPPING 40 dollars elsewhere for the same traffic quality?
Step #3: Watch The Free Webinar
The webinar is designed to teach you how to make high-ticket $2K and also $16K in additional passive commissions on autopilot.
You’d expect LJ to be hosting the webinar, right?
Instead, he sends you to another product called ‘Profits Passport‘.
Where you’ll enter your email address into the squeeze page to access a 1-hour and 40-minute webinar from a guy named David Dekel.
I won’t go into all the details because it’s beyond the scope of this review.
But Dekel shows you his own system (Profits Passport) that allows you to potentially earn the big bucks from multiple opportunities:
- Easy1Up (however, you must invest $25, $100, $250, $500, $K & $2K (+ admin fees) in the products yourself to qualify for commissions).
- Funnel X Advance (however, you’re looking at costs of $200, $597 & $1,997 before you can earn big).
- ROI Panel
- OPM Wealth (Bitcoin! UGH!).
So overall, this step isn’t cheap, I tell ya!
Steps #4, 5 & 6: It’s Upsell Time!
Step #4: You’ll upgrade to SSS VIP for advanced training and bonuses = $7.
Step #5: Unlock ‘High Ticket Takeover’ = $47.
This gives you the privilege to earn $10,000s from your SSS referrals via the income streams in the webinar above ^^.
Step #6: Join as an ‘Elite’ to earn 100% commissions on the SSS products = $197.
Or in other words, buy the ‘Reseller License’.
PSST! If you’re looking for a cheaper and better DFY system (with 50+ income streams!) – join My Online Startup for free instead.
Final Conclusion: Is The Stupid Simple System a Scam?
The short answer is NO.
Because there’s certainly some awesome money-making potential behind the scenes of the Stupid Simple System.
I’m not a fan of the system, in the slightest.
Because first of all, Aviles sells you HIS own costly traffic for you to promote HIS system/products.
Which, BTW, is just an affiliate link.
SSS doesn’t come with a squeeze page, ‘Done-For-You’ email campaigns or even guidance on hooking up your own autoresponder service.
If you don’t build an email list, then you’re missing a trick.
Because “the money’s in the list”, as the saying goes.
Secondly, you must hand more dosh over to the guy for HIS upsells to maximize your own commissions.
And thirdly, HE stands to profit some more when you invest in the multiple opportunities via Profits Passport inside step #3.
Yeah, no wonder SSS is free – it’s gonna cost you $100s – $1,000s behind the curtain to get started.
So based on those facts, it’s not a particularly great system for a newb – especially one on a shoestring budget.

Got any questions or thoughts to share on SSS? Please hop on the conversation below…
Yes I actually bought into this it is called the VIP Elite affiliate system now. I wasn’t going to plop down a bunch of money for the traffic so I put the 97 dollars down and tried to do all the traffic building myself just like he tells everybody to go on Tick Tock repurpose videos and post them everywhere on Facebook on tick tock on whatever social media you have and to go on Facebook groups which most of them deleted the posts and almost immediately.
Now he has posts constantly trying to sell you new systems a new system every week. With a new name. This Spanish dancer is trying to waltz you into the Pour House with his BS system. I must have made 300 posts at least and only one person ever looked or clicked on the link and once they took a look at it probably realized it was horse manure and quickly backed off quick.
This definitely mostly benefits the BS creator. He makes it sound like you’re going to start posting and get people to buy into his b******* system almost immediately and you’ll be making $1,000 a week. I’d be happy with a couple hundred a week right now but it’s a pipe dream. And I don’t like what he’s giving us to smoke.
Thanks LJ. You truly are a pestilence upon Society.
I appreciate the heads up.
Good for you, solo ads truly SUCK – trust me, I’ve blown $1,000s without results.
And why does that not surprise me with spamming Facebook groups? Realistically, you need to create your own FB group and build it up for a shot at real success.
As for the whole repurposing thing – LJ’s strategy clearly doesn’t work. I suggest using repurpose.io to share your TikToks across FB reels, Instagram reels, YouTube shorts, Pinterest idea pins, etc – you can get LOTS of traffic doing it the “PROVEN” way.
Stop following the Pied Piper, time to dance to your own tune 😉
I will not be joining this Stupid Simple System, as you said it is free but also not, and it seems to me that was created to benefit the creator and not in the best interest of the clients.
It is also very pricey to do the upsales. Appreciate your honesty on this matter, but for now I will give this a skip.
I don’t blame you, Charne!
There’s always a catch (in the form of $1,000s) with these “FREE” systems.
This is why I recommend systems like THIS instead – it’s a true representation of affiliate marketing rather than just an overpriced “scheme”.
Great review… you definitely saved me a couple of hours in the future… I’ll steer clear of Stupid Simple System.
Upsells are a huge turn off for me and your review harps on the extent this system tries to upsell the user.
The success stories are out there when it comes to affiliate marketing but it’s smart to avoid claims that reaching the success is “stupid” easy.
Successful people put in hard work and a lot of time to get there. Thanks for the warning and thorough post on this potentially dangerous investment opportunity.
Cheers, glad to hear it, Charles! 😀
This STUPID system wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t walk you into joining another mega costly system (Profits Passport) WITHIN a system LOL.
To be honest, you shouldn’t have to fork out $1,000s for a money-making system (especially 2 combined) when there are FAR better and cheaper ones on the market.
Some of which even offer you numerous niches to choose from for earning a passive income.
But I agree, even with DFY systems on the go, making a sh*t ton of money is far from a super fast and easy process.
