Let's break it down... -- by the way. I am a real person, I know what I'm talking about because I am an affiliate, I am also a MOBE partner and Titanium member. You can find my info at the bottom of this response. In the link you'll find all my info.
I want to show you that MTTB and MOBE is real, everybody has an opinion... but few people are actually educated enough to make an informed decision on their own and they are swayed by smooth talking and strong opinions. I hope you aren't and I hope you want to be informed so you can decide.
I'd like to inform you now. -- these aren't just opinions I formulated after checking out a few sales pages and a couple of videos and text, I've helped MOBE members build their businesses for a little over 2 years and after checking everything out time and time again I am now promoting the products on my own affiliate channels where I promote over 40 other (non-mobe) affiliate products.
21 steps are daily, you must do them and apply them. You don't have to spend any more money... you could promote the products as an affiliate and even so without joining MTTB at all. We have said this time and time again, but people like Ian continue to deceive you... because they never got to the point where something is presented to them.
You could right now apply to be a MOBE affiliate and start promoting any of about 40 products and make 50% commissions. Right now, without paying a dime.
Now... that's real. Just like you can join Shareasale, Clickbank, Commission Junction and promote any of the products there, you can do the same with MOBE products.
1:17 - No, no lies. You can complete every single step all the way through 21 AND get the 30 day traffic lessons as well. You are welcome to make the purchases you are presented along the way.
But if you don't want to buy the license, all you have to say is I'd like to continue with the rest of the steps and I will consider the license later. Nobody is forcing you to buy anything and everything is disclosed. --
You are specifically told all the benefits of getting a MOBE license before you buy it. You have to agree to a contract where everything is disclosed.
You are really mistaken on the way you talk about this. Your satisfaction is guaranteed to get your money back of $49. If you decide to stick with MOBE and try it and promote products and don't make a sale, then you can claim the $500 cash back guarantee.
2:20 - Lie or uninformed -- again. Leadpages, which Ian uses (following the exact model we teach in MTTB no, less) requires you to be a paying member (high level) if you want to promote their products as affiliates and make money.
Paying to be a member to promote a product isn't new, isn't scammy and it ensures that the person is committed to the product and not a fly-by-night wannabe affiliate.
Charging to be an affiliate is another lie. You can be an affiliate for free... right now. Just join MOBE as an affiliate and start promoting products.
Touching on paying to do business... I could give you the standard "it takes money to make money" cliche, but I'll pose this instead:
Can you please try starting a Subway, McDonalds, GM dealership, DelTaco, TacoBell or any business with an established brand and support without paying a fee? License, or royalty? -- No...
Can I talk to a Leadpages specialist right now to help me craft a good pitch for the service so that it fits "my niche" specifically? Not gonna happen, gonna have to hire a copywriter or marketing specialist.
If you want to make real money, you have to buy things to help, licenses, permits, phone or real staff. The license is exactly that overhead costs to license all that MOBE has for you including support. You also get access to live events, support groups and so much more. Some of our support groups have over 4000 active members... right now.
MOBE offers a license that no only allows you to promote high-end products, but it also raises your commissions and keeps the customer under your business. You can market to them later, coach them, sell them a new course or product or promote your book. That is the 1997 fee. But the most important thing you get is a sales team. Can you seriously tell me you can hire a phone sales team "forever" for $2000? Where they will keep selling products for you?
We are trying to build businesses and help people learn how to do that. The basics of MOBE are this: Learn how to do internet marketing by using our products and if you want to promote our products to apply what you've learned, great. It is like learning how to ride a bike with training wheels.
If you don't want to promote these products, don't buy the license and learn all the training from MTTB. You can take all the same principles you've learned and apply them to any other business.
3:05 - In low money making affiliate circles, Ian is right. Why would you pay a fee to make tiny commissions as Ian suggests you on his site. But in this case, you can stand to make $1000 from one sale.
Now you can see that a license to promote the small products for 90% commissions and a $1000 commission product is worth it. In the first 3 - 5 days, I made close to 5K in 2 1000 sales and smaller between 300 - 500 each.
3:44 - The core of this review is this sentence. Ian is not comfortable selling high-end products because he hasn't experienced the value that is in these products. When he does, he would probably change his mind. But don't expect that to be anytime soon since he placed judgment on something without even trying it.
Also, he may not find a whole lot of value in the low end products because presumably (based on his smooth talking videos he knows the basics of affiliate marketing).
4:11 - It isn't your job to make sure the buyer derives value from the product. It is your job to present a product that has inherent value in it. If I sell you leadpages for 1000/year and you never use it, it was worthless. But if you use it to make 1000/week promoting your product then that first 1000 spent is a drop in the bucket compared to 52K.
I have made thousands of dollars with MOBE and continue to do so. My personal friend John Chow makes over 100K/month. At least 4 of my friends make well over 6 figures and I have coached and helped at least 15 people making high five figures. And the list of success stories are out there. The value in the products speak for themselves and Ian is really doing a disservice to people trying to find a good business opportunity. This is not a simple affiliate program like wealthy affiliate.
The difference between affiliate marketing and licensing (I describe it in detail in my book) http://oglink.it/wapoblog-youtube is that with when you become a licensee (not a regular affiliate), you get a whole "business in a box" -- with other affiliate programs, you have to figure out landing pages, creative, the swipe files, the selling funnel, the pain points, the selling points and all that stuff... FOR EVERY SINGLE PRODUCT you want to promote.
That is an unsurmountable task for most people starting in the business of internet marketing. Most people will fail when they start. This is why Ian promotes WA.
MOBE removes most of those barriers with MTTB, IM revolution, Innercircle and other products.
-- For Ian, if you want to truly provide an honest review and you're going to pass judgment like this, you need to truly put your statements and the product to the test by using it. -- I understand that it would be difficult to re-write your entire book to fit MOBE into it, but the truth is that you haven't tried MOBE.
This review is akin me telling you not to try the steak house down the street because it looks like another steak house that sucks. They both sell steaks, and they both have staff and a fancy sign up front. They even have valet. But one of them is better than the other... But you'll never know just based on me telling you.
Until you go and buy the steak, eat it and experience it, you don't get to give an "honest review" -- it's only speculation and opinion at that point.
And if you did try it, I'd love to see your reports and stats on your landing pages, optin rates, your follow ups and your conversions... why do I ask this? because I am calling bs on this review, it seems like a couch-quarterback opinion.
At the end of the day, when you are evaluating a product that has a 100% money back guarantee. Are you going to listen to someone that thinks they know? Or are you going to listen to the people that have gone through the system, applied it and are making money? After all, it is 100% money back guarantee so if you try 21 steps (yes you can complete them all) and you don't like it, then ask for a refund.
