EARN INSANE PROFITS WITH THE RIGHT FORMULA
"You can make the same fortunes that many other online
marketers are making the hard way!"
"This will be the best investment you will make this
year - guaranteed. It's hard to put a value on what you will
receive, but it would be fair to say that this technology can
help make you thousands or even millions - this year! . . .
"You can literally make a fortune by just sending out
bulk e-mail. Soon you will have the problem of what to do with
all the cash you will make."
"We did a mailing of 1 ½ million emails for one of our
customers. He was selling a home workers manual for $29.95.
He took in over 700 orders! 700 x $29.95 = $20,000. This gentleman
was so amazed that, after being skeptical, it had really happened
to him. He went on to buy our full list and will be set for
life in less than a year's time."
"It really does work. Why else are there so many individuals
doing it? They are not just wasting their time. They are all
making mega bucks. Our recipient list is over 27,000,000 and
made up of mainly small business owners and individuals that
would be categorized as opportunity seekers."
The fact is, few if any people attain the specific level of
earnings, income, or sales as represented by illegally sending
unsolicited bulk e-mail or spam. Few, if any, of the recipients
on their e-mail lists have been identified as small business
owners and individuals categorized as opportunity seekers who
are even remotely interested in receiving it.
Don't Just Take Our Word For It
"We've already helped thousands of couples and individuals
turn into successful business people, and we believe we can
help you, too."
Interested, you call a toll-free number to order a free information
kit. Based on the ads they say you can expect to earn $4,000
per month using their "proven turn-key business." The
information packets contain brochures and an audio cassette tape
recording by the co-founders with the following statements:
"In the last thirteen years, we've identified over thirty
needs and wants. Each one of them is easy to run, helps other
people and provides you with a good profit. We've not only
identified these thirty needs, but have developed the technology
and strategies to perform these services, easily and profitably,
all from your home."
"Once you start to advertise, people know about it immediately
and start coming to you for your services. Once the word gets
out, you'll have to expand your services very rapidly."
"If you take 8 free hours times 7 days a week, you
have 56 hours. Divide that by two, and you have 28 hours that
you can use in this business. Now I realize I've not included
weekends. If you use 28 hours per week to do this program,
you will be extremely successful."
"I can't guarantee that you'll make $4,000 to $10,000
a month. I don't know what's inside of you. But you can earn
more money than you ever dreamed possible if you will work
"Some of our center owners use the computer dialing
equipment for telemarketing to find qualified prospects for
insurance, real estate, chimney cleaning and so forth. If they
call from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., they can usually call around
1,000 people a day."
These claims are backed up by glowing endorsements from other
Center Owner "examples".
LEE STOUT: "The program has enabled me to grow my business
to the point where I can make $100,000+ per year. . . . If
I can be successful at this, anyone can!"
CURTIS MAPP: "I now have 258 subscribers billed at $30
per month, which means I'm earning over $7,700 per month."
The home-based business venture or center you purchase ordinarily
consists of computer hardware, software, training manuals, marketing
materials, and available technical assistance which, together,
are said to enable you to create products and services that can
be resold profitably to the general public.
They fail to disclose that, with their outbound telemarketing
programs, federal law prohibits the use of an automatic dialing
system to initiate a call to any residential telephone line to
transmit an unsolicited ad for commercial purposes without the
prior express consent of the called party. This fact would be
somewhat material in your decision to purchase their package.
They have sold their home-based business ventures to approximately
15,000 consumers for between $3,000 and $16,000. Most new owners
do not end up operating profitable businesses out of their own
homes. Indeed, it is rare for purchasers to
recoup even their initial average investments of approximately
$9,000. The vast majority of Center Owners not only never earn
$4,000 per month, but never earn even $4,000 over the duration
of their business efforts.
Calling All Suckers
Another company used auto-dialers to solicit a business opportunity
which then involved their use. The pre-recorded message said
the company was looking for people willing to monitor a computer
from their home and perform other simple tasks for a guaranteed
minimum of $40,000 per year.
Several people paid a $3,000 "refundable deposit" for
the use of the equipment then installed extra home telephone
lines believing it was a legal product, simple to operate, and
required no expertise in computers to operate. The tasks required
were not simple and the goals that had to be achieved to get
the "guaranteed" $40,000 annual fee involved monitoring
the equipment and sending out at least 200 faxes a month to interested,
qualified leads. Given the low response rate to the automated
messages, it was impossible to ever achieve the required objective.
