Profit Max Direct Mail Business Opportunity. A Passive Income Scam?

THE FOLLOWING WAS A POST I WROTE ABOUT THE PROFITMAX BUSINESS. I NO LONGER ENDORSE THAT PROGRAM OR ANY SIMILAR PROGRAM. THE POST  REMAINS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. I HOPE IT GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR IN SIMILAR PROGRAM OFFERINGS SO YOU CAN MAKE AN INTELLIGENT DECISION ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT TO JOIN.

I HAVE TO GO ON RECORD BY SAYING I DON’T BELIEVE IT WAS AN OUTRIGHT SCAM. I DO BELIEVE IT WAS A BIT MISLEADING AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT WAS HORRIBLE. THE GUARANTEE WAS ALSO MISLEADING AND NOT EVERYONE RECEIVED WHAT WAS PROMISED. IN MY OPINION IT WAS A RESULT OF THE PROGRAM GROWING TO FAST.
 If you have done any investigation into online business opportunity type programs I am sure your head is spinning from the abundance of options. One of the crucial components of a well rounded passive income portfolio is having one or more offline programs that can be classified as semi-passive. By semi-passive I mean there is no selling or recruiting that has to be done on your part but there may be some work required like sticking some labels on an envelope or post card, a trip to the post office etc. If you are fortunate enough to find a program that will handle the tasks of printing, stuffing and mailing for you then you can convert any offline business opportunity to a passive income stream.

I recently discovered an offline marketing program that provides everything necessary to make it a completely turnkey passive program with the ability to be semi-passive if you choose. In fact one of the most unique things about this venture is that it actually offers a performance guarantee to virtually guarantee you predictable profits. First and foremost there has to be a fairly viable product and lucrative pay structure but the most important component is exactly what makes it passive. This specific opportunity actually includes an initial mailing of the opportunity promotional flier with your contact information on it and guarantees you a 1% response rate.

Once you enroll and order their dealer package the company will mail the program offer to 2000 proven opportunity buyers and guarantee enough response to put over $1000 in your pocket or they will keep mailing until you get the response!  They take it a step further and offer the same initial offer to people who enroll as a result of your promotional mailing and you benefit from the sales they make for those individuals as well.

You can get started in your own offline direct mail business for less than $400 INCLUDING an initial direct mail campaign on your behalf to 2000 opportunity buyers with a performance guarantee. This initially did not make sense to me since the cost to mail to 2000 people would cost more than $900 yet they are charging less than $400!

When I learned how they did this I thought the concept was genius and the program truly became more viable in my eyes. The company submits your flier with 7 or 8 other non-competing offers  to dramatically reduce the cost. The best part is that they are so confident in the list they mail to they still offer the performance guarantee IN WRITING even though your offer is not the only one being mailed.

So exactly what do you get for your money?

1) 2000 fliers printed and mailed with you listed as the recipient of a portion of the commissions for all sales.
This mailing comes with a 1% performance guarantee in writing.

2) 500 additional Opportunity Buyer Leads on peel and stick labels so you can mail an additional 500 if you choose.

3) A Program Instruction Manual that teaches you EXACTLY how to maximize your profit without selling or harassing your family and friends.

4) 100 Digital Books on a CD-Rom you can pop into any computer and get instant access to digital books on a number of topics ranging
from how to become a power seller on ebay to insider secrets of selling real estate, how to quit smoking, stress management and whole lot more! This package alone is valued at well more than $997.

UPDATE AS OF 2012 I NO LONGER ENDORSE THE PROFITMAX OPPORTUNITY.

THIS POST IS BEING LEFT ON THIS BLOG FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES. I DO NOT BELIEVE THE COMPANY WAS

AN OUTRIGHT SCAM BUT THE RESULTS WERE A FRACTION OF WHAT WAS VIRTUALLY “GUARANTEED” AND I DO NOT RECOMMEND

ANY MAIL ORDER PROGRAM THAT PROVIDES COOP MAILING FOR YOU WITH  A SO CALLED GUARANTEED RETURN.
