One of the latest “get rich quick” schemes doing the circles at the moment is Plug In Profit, or PIP. In the package, the author “Stone Evans” reveals how in 3 easy steps, you can create a website that has 5 streams of auto pilot income.
The sales pitch is the same old, long winded content, filled with testimonials and the famous bank cheque which is supposed to convince us that this is the real deal. Anyone heard of photoshop? Evan also proceeds to tell us a story about his 10,000 credit card debt and his fight to earn money online .. oh and of course we all feel sorry for him.
Naturally, he discovered the secret and now wants to share it with us.
How nice of him.
I dug a little deeper and found out that most people aren’t earning anything to rave about from the Plug In Profit system, but what they are getting is an education in Internet marketing and this can be value enough.
The problem with Plug In Profit, is that your website looks and has the same content (and opt-in letters) as everyone else. The key is to customize, and this is where your HTML & CSS skills come into play. One thing I did notice that sparked my interest was the pre-written email autoresponder campaign, which has 400 days of pre-written content. Impressive.
And where would a sales pitch be without the bonuses! The Plug In Profit system comes with a bonus eBook, titled “Confessions of an Affiliate Millionaire”. No joke, I laughed out loud when I saw the picture of this eBook.
To sum it up, Plug In Profit gives you a website that is geared to sell affiliate products and services (one I noticed was a telephone service in america..). It contains an autoresponder system that has 400 pre-written emails that attempt to sell various affiliate offers to your opt-in list (getting one is the hard part) and also you’ll learn about ezine advertising, marketing forums and a crash course in Google adwords.
Oh and you’ll also learn about blogs, how to launch one (which is apparently free ..) and how to blog and ping.
If anyone’s had any experiance with making money from Plug In Profit, I’d love to know so feel free to comment.
