    We are looking for investors to invest in our acai and detox products. We have the sites up and ready to go. We have did some testing as well in the advertising networks. The products are converting excellent.

    We are willing to give back 20 percent each month of the ROI (anywhere from $2,000-$3,000). We would like to keep this going for at least 6 months. Investors will be paid every 35 days.

    What do you need the money for? and is the method proven?

    Why not start small if you already have everything else?

    It's a fast growing market. There is room for other people to get into it. As for proven profits yes of course. We did some small test and it worked out well.

    But you have to remember this market is a huge market. Some days can break even or slightly lose a bit. You can't just throw a $300-$500 dollars into a market like this and expect to start small. You need to spend around $1,000+ per day... The profits are here as some days will do 200 percent profit. Then other days you might lose little bit. Overall it's extremely lucrative.

    On top of that the ad network sends higher converting traffic. For those who bid higher and spend more. The conversion rates literally double.

    By the way we have one person getting ready to put $25,000 into it. One of my friends out here in LA. I also put in a loan for $25,000. I had another guy wanting to do a partnership and invest $100,000. But I shyed away from that as he wanted ownership in the business as well.

    We are doing media buy. Just like when you buy TV ads (infomercials). Some of them require a minimum of $25,000 to start an ad. The reason being for is because with this type of advertising you don't see results from starting small. There is HUGE GAPS that create large profit streams (during certain days).

    Media buys are always like that (sometimes you make lots of profit, sometimes you just get break even, sometimes you lose a bit)...

    what I dont like from media buys is that we put our ass to the risk and the merchant gets all the money. We always need new customer in order to keep up with the costs.

    So tell me, are you another affiliate to one of these diet CPA offers? if yes, im not interested as I do media buys myself for them. If you are the merchant yourself, things will be interesting.

    I am not an affiliate (no more). We own the products. We process the orders. That's why we need investors for. Because we are the advertiser. We will be recruiting affiliates soon. We have a large profit margin...

    Does this make sense to you?

    If you are from the US message me. I am from LA. We already have two investors. One said he would fund ~$50,000. The other one is going to do $15,000. I would like to stay even just with one person. I am weighing my options right now.

    To be honest most of the serious inquiries come from people I know well (family, former clients, and etc).

    Why not rinse and repeat that strategy instead of dealing with investors?

    I'd beware on this one guys. Seems VERY fishy.

    Anyone who's saying they already have $50k and $15k investment is likely a scammer. You say that to people because it makes them feel at ease. If someone else is investing $50k, then what's the harm in me investing $10k etc..

    People who say "we" are also generally fishy. It's another technique to make them sound bigger.

    And TWO lines of info for a $10k investment? Anyone serious would have written a lot more information than this.

    Notice how the only things he says are how much you'll make back, how often you'll get paid and how much others have invested. These are all alarm bell signals and scammers use them to blind people to the reality of a situation, making them only see the "results".


    Also, he says "the products are converting excellent". This is NOT an English speaking native, yet he later goes on to tell you he's from LA and says things like "His friend out here in LA". Scammers know LA is a wealthy and glamorous place, so this makes potential victims think they're dealing with some top startup.


    I could spend all morning writing about the alarm bell signals in this post. I'm 100% sure this is a scam. Send money to these guys at your own peril.

    Yes that is right and that's not all net profit. Most of this has went back into the business. We are now venturing into something else.

    Serious investors I will meet in person. I have no problem with that. I will also sign papers as well. In fact I prefer to meet only serious investor or lenders.

    Why do you think even large corporations take outside investments. Even when they are doing extremely well. Because cash flow issues. They invest their money into new ventures, but need more money to go into that venture.


    Just comes to tell me not every one has good business sense ;).

    Hitman to answer your question... This is a totally different market. This is when I use to be an affiliate. I have moved into larger areas now.

    You also have to remember not all that was profit. We put a lot back into the business. Either way we are always looking for additional capital.

    Why do you think people like Donald Trump and etc take outside investments. No matter how profitable you are. No matter how much money you make. Sooner or later you have to know how to pool in outside investments. Especially in fast growing markets.

    I know of several INC 500 companies that run into cash flow issues. Because they are WANTING to spend more then they have. So they can take advantage of the market why it's there. At the same time make other people money as well.

    Plus as I stated above. I have a lot of time and money wrapped up into what I am doing now. I have moved out of the affiliate arena. Basically made a shit load of money lived off it for awhile and made money. Now we are merging into more profitable things. So profitable that we can let other people in on it and all make even bigger bank.
