Does anyone know any info about this? thesixfigurementors.com
Or can share the info
Your site OP?
A quick Google search just screams the words "MLM Scam" and "Pyramid Scheme".
LOL, they still about?
Yep, I know about them. Basically started by a guy called Stuart Ross from my neck of the woods. It's based on the Yournetbiz model which was hot back 4years ago when I first got started in IM. It's a MLM where you have to recruit people and close them for a sale either by phone or face to face. It claims to offer training on how start up a IM business but in reality it's just a MLM marketing online. You earn something like $1k commission per sale, but to get that you have to convince your lead to buy the top package, and then for them to earn the same they would have to convince their lead to do the same, and the vicious cycle continues. And the kicker is that your're supposed to mentor your lead when they come onboard your team, but how do you mentor someone when your're just as green??You can't!
It is not noob friendly and in no way shape or form should you do it. Most of the training you can find for free online. Plus you'll end up skint before you even have started. Not only will You have to pay an upfront fee of $1k just to be able to then promote the product to someone else, you'll also have to pay an admin fee every month, last time I heard was about $20(wow, just checked, it's actually $97 a month now, talk about rip off)
Most of the guys on those videos who have set up blogs are now no where to been seen, mostly likely cos they've realised what a chump they have been to have been sucked in by all the display of big checks and Stuart's Lambo.
This is not a passive business in the sense like the traditional affiliate marketing where you build a site, rank it and earn passive income without doing much. You WILL have to meet people, you WILL have to speak to people, you WILL have to close them to get that sale. You are also expected to mentor them and pass on your so called internet marketing skills, hard to do when you've just started out yourself, right?
Avoid like the plague.
Yup, looks like another MLM scheme.
not my site , wife just sent me a link she falling for it lol
@yellowboi thanks mate
no worries pal. Tell your wife to stay well clear. If you look about there are a lot of bad reviews about them, especially from the noobs whose mentor they've signed up to have abandon them after being paid.
It's a shame really that they're not upfront about what they do. When you first start online all you know is the term IM, hence when you meet these guys, your thinking ok, sounds good. It's only once you've paid up that you realise your're in a MLM and are now a network internet marketer as opposed to the affiliate internet marketer. Hence why so many people fail, cos let's face it, not everyone can sell over the phone, let alone face to face.
I know this is a year later but I just stumbled upon this.
What irks me with these guru scammers is the new trust angle they use to earn credibility; They say "this is not some get rich quick scheme", and then go on to promote their shit again. I'm sure that line works pretty effectively, I just wonder where that leaves someone legit trying to insist that what he/she teaches really isn't some get rich quick scheme. Those scammers have undermined the meaning of the line.
That Stuart Ross guy I've been seeing everywhere, on YouTube ads and all over the place. Doesn't he strike you as slimy, with all the shots of him standing next to his 3 Ferraris with tropical beaches in the background? I'm surprised something that gratuitous is apparently so effective.
That website is very clean. I would like to know what script they are using.
