Local Mobile Monopoly review + Mastermind Group

IMPORTANT: If you read through the comments I ended up telling people to do the following INSTEAD of purchasing Local Mobile Monopoly:

Get Mobile Marketing For Dummies” which I’ve found helpful.

Cheat sheet is here:
Mobile Marketing For Dummies Cheat Sheet

One of the charts reproduced in the book was from this primer that iLoop Mobile did for the DMA:
DMA iLoop Mobile Primer

I was specifically struck by the chart called “Mapping Advantages of the Mobile Paths” which showed that Voice & SMS currently are by FAR the best paths to use in Mobile Marketing and that Apps lag so far behind.

Update: Adam Horwitz now is putting out something called ClickOpp which you’ll probably want to avoid.

Here’s The OLD Local Mobile Monopoly Information – Again, I NO LONGER RECOMMEND IT

This page started out as a Local Mobile Monopoly review of the launch process. The initial invitation was kind of strange, but the more I’ve looked into this opportunity the more I think it may actually have a significant amount of potential for many people.

Disclosure: I’m NOT a big fan of Adam Horwitz’s style of marketing

I’m going to be up front here. I’m not a big fan of Adam Horwitz’s style of marketing. And one of his other products – Mobile Monopoly – got quite a bit of negative feedback.

However…the more I look into Local Mobile Marketing the more I am seeing the same massive opportunity for those who want to profit from the trend.

I’ve talked to Shawn Swinigan of the Front Door Media Group and he has researched the Local Mobile Monopoly product and opportunity. Front Door Media Group works with several local businesses in various markets.

Shawn has said that the core Local Mobile Monopoly product is a good introduction, however he also said…

Local Mobile Monopoly – You do NOT need the upsells

Note: Currently I am recommending people buy Mobile Marketing For Dummies Instead Of Local Mobile Monopoly for a couple of reasons:

  1. Adam did NOT follow through on the support he promised.
  2. There’s evidence that the problem with Adam Horwitz goes beyond simply his marketing style, but also into his actual knowledge of mobile marketing itself. You can read an interesting Mobile Monopoly review here.

Shawn from Front Door Media Group also said the following:

  • You do NOT need the upsells.
  • There are BETTER alternatives to YepText (note: this is being re-evaluated & will be discussed within the mastermind group).
  • There are better alternatives to the mobile site builder discussed in Local Mobile Monopoly

He’ll be covering those and there in his mastermind group which you can read about here:

4/8/2011 UPDATE: The Local Mobile Monopoly Mastermind Group Is Currently CLOSED

Local Mobile Monopoly launch updates:

This is just a summary of dates and events (I still need to fill some in):

3/18/2011 – Custom tool for finding local business prospects is now available for free
3/01/2011 – JV email announcing YepText which “will allow anyone especially local businesses
to reach their customers with a simple text.”
3/01/2011 – Training videos added to JV area
2/19/2011 -Launch invitation sent to WorkAtHomeTruth

I’m also tracking how many listing show up for keyword constructions that people traditionally search for in product launches such as:

  • Product name
  • Product name review
  • Product name bonus
  • Product name scam

…which is interesting from an affiliate’s standpoint to see just how crazy the competition can be in organic listing for these types of launches. Of course some of the listings could be multiple pages created by the same person

I’ll be keeping track results for each keyword search phrase by date to see how the competition for rankings on these Local Mobile Monopoly related keywords grows between now and the official launch date:

Local Mobile Monopoly Google Phrase Match Results By Date
Date “Local Mobile Monopoly” “Local Mobile Monopoly review” “Local Mobile Monopoly bonus” “Local Mobile Monopoly scam”
2011/03/20 1,970,000 447,000 208,000 36,800
2011/03/18 1,590,000 397,000 174,000 29,600
2011/03/03 392,000 102,000 37,100 9,600
2011/02/26 513,000 97,100 43,900 6,010
2011/02/19 393,000 65,200 13,300 4,890
2011/02/24 213,000 36,500 16,300 5,550
2011/02/22 200,000 35,600 15,500 5,550

At some point I’ll also start tracking the search count for each phrase.

Here’s how this Local Mobile Monopoly review of the product launch started:

For some strange reason I got an invitation to do a Local Mobile Monopoly review from somebody named Rachel Weng, but I guess what they didn’t know is that I’d be more inclined to do a Local Mobile Monopoly review about it’s sales tactics and launch process than to do an actual review of the Local Mobile Monopoly product itself.

Why? Because I found the actual sales tactics used in many of these recent product launches incredibly interesting. So many of them like the recent Mass Money Makers launch have been accused by some people as being a tad more than just “controversial”.  Also, because a quick search on Google shows that Adam Horowitz’s original “Mobile Monopoly” was apparently a massive launch.

Hopefully when I do my Local Mobile Monopoly review of it’s launch process I’ll find that it’s using completely different tactics than many recent ClickBank launches have used. I plan to share notes with other people who are following and “participating” in this launch for similar reasons.

Local Mobile Monopoly Review Of Pricing

If you’re someone looking to buy Local Mobile Monopoly you should know that I’m not promoting it so that I can stay focus on this review of the launch.  However, I can tell you that as of now the JV page states that the basic Local Mobile Monopoly course will be $37. There will apparently also be various upsells as the  the JV page states the following:

“Don’t forget, as an affiliate/jv, you can make up to $200 per person with a $30 per month recurring commission for each person that joins Local Mobile Monopoly.”

Local Mobile Monopoly Review Of Initial JV Invitation

On February 19, 2011, at 5:45 Central time, I received the following invitation to participate in the Local Mobile Monopoly product launch:

Local Mobile Monopoly review of launch invitation email

Local Mobile Monopoly review of launch invitation email

While I’m definitely not a stickler for grammar, spelling, or formatting, it did seem odd to me that a joint venture launch by an internet marketer would have such an oddly formatted email message, including:

  1. No line breaks
  2. One line that is 184 characters long – nearly 3 times the traditionally recommended maximum email line length of 65 characters.

The email sounds suspiciously like a form letter that any website could have been plugged into. There is no reference to any specific element of WorkAtHomeTruth that would make me think otherwise.

Local Mobile Monopoly Bonus Fever

I’m obviously out of the loop when it comes to product launches like this, because I had never heard of Adam Horowitz’s Local Mobile Monopoly until I received that JV invitation, but a quick search for “Local Mobile Monopoly Bonus” within quotation marks revealed 13,300 results:

Google results for "Local Mobile Monopoly bonus"

Google results for "Local Mobile Monopoly bonus"

Of course some of those could be multiple pages created by the same person. On the other hand, according to JVNotifyPro.com the launch date isn’t officially until March 21, 2011 (see below image) which means there will probably be thousands more Local Mobile Monopoly bonus pages appearing in the search results before then.

Local Mobile Monopoly Launch Date At JVNotifyPro.com

Local Mobile Monopoly Launch Date At JVNotifyPro.com

However, that was an interested result, so I did searches on other keyword constructions that people traditionally search for in product launches such as:

  • Product name
  • Product name review
  • Product name bonus
  • Product name scam

I’m moved the tracking of that information to the top of this Local Mobile Monopoly review page.

Local Mobile Monopoly Review Of Affiliate Contests

Whoever is behind the Local Mobile Monopoly launch has incorporated several incentives for affiliates to push very hard on this launch. According to the JV page for Local Mobile Monopoly, between the prelaunch prizes and launch prizes there will be over $55,000 in cash prizes plus one person will win rental of a Ferrari California for 3 full days.

Local Mobile Monopoly – Send Leads For A Product You Know Nothing About?

One thing that’s a bit strange about Local Mobile Monopoly is that there seems to be no way to get any real information about the product. Unless by “information” you just mean “how much money can you make sending people to a product you know nothing about”.

I suppose I could ASK how to buy a copy of Local Mobile Monopoly (although I don’t think I can), but it just seems a bit odd that I’m supposed to promote a product I know nothing about (other than some 548 word 3-page PDF that tells me that there’s an “opportunity” to be had in local mobile marketing):

Well, I do know this “about” Local Mobile Monopoly…There are a bunch of affiliate contests leading up to and during the launch. I’ll do some hunting around and see if anybody is reviewing the actual product yet.

The Following Video Explains What I Know About Local Mobile Monopoly So Far…

Since I don’t typically participate in product launches these days, I wasn’t sure how they worked. Back in 2005/2006 when I actually did at least offer to review the products typically the partners were sent a copy of the product to review. I think the last one I was sent was Yanik Silver’s CopyWriting course which was sold for $500 at the time. He sent me the entire course to review. Prior to that John Reese sent his $997 Traffic Secrets course to review.

I’m not saying that I would expect to get free review copies of a product, but again there doesn’t seem to be any way to even buy the actual product to review it, yet at the same time JV Partners are supposed to send leads?

I figured I must have missed something.  But today (2/28/2011) I checked the two email accounts I’m using to get information for the launch and so far I haven’t received anything since the original email from Adam Horwitz that said:

“Hey!

Thanks for signing up to be an Affiliate/JV for our
upcoming launch on March 21st! (It’s going to be KILLER)
The goal for Local Mobile Monopoly is to make it
even bigger than the Mobile Monopoly launch we
had in August. :)
… I know we can do it too! 3,000 Gravity?!
I’ll be sending you more info as we get closer…
Talk soon!
Adam & Tim”

Local Mobile Monopoly review of 3/1/2011 JV email

I received an email for the Local Mobile M0nopoly review on 3/1/2011 from Adam Horwitz covering the following:
  1. They will be releasing a service on 3/21/2011 called YepText which “will allow anyone especially local businesses
    to reach their customers with a simple text.”
  2. Partner Training Videos have been added to the back end.

The Partner Training area for Local Mobile Monopoly seems extremely well laid out. And including videos together with PDFs is nice to see.

I’ll be going through the partner training videos to get a sense of their quality and will post my opinions here.

  1. So…do you know yet if this product works well? I’m super interested in it b/c it seems less time consuming than other IM pgms and there’s no “cold calling” which I’m so used to doing with my regular “job”
    Hope to hear back soon, thanks :)

    • Bella,

      Shawn’s starting his mastermind group Monday and I’m just starting into it, so I can’t give you a definitive answer.

      What I can tell you is the DEMAND and NEED for this is definitely there. I’ve been stunned to see how many businesses are behind the curve.

  2. Michael J says:

    I bought the course. I like it.

    HOWEVER, for the past 12 hours, I have NOT been able to log into the Member’s Area and access the Mobile Agent portion of the site. Also, I have NOT received a message to my support ticket asking why the Agent Area of the website no longer exist.

    All of the materials are GONE. If you have any way to talk with Adam, I’d love to find out what happened. Basically, I paid for the service and it doesn’t exist.

    Also, they advertise 24×7 phone support. NOPE. No such thing. They don’t even have a phone.

    So, I’m not calling it a SCAM (yet) because maybe they don’t know that their website has been down and that all of the people who paid for the service can’t use it or that all of the materials are gone or that they don’t offer phone support.

    Maybe.

    If you have a way to get to them and find out what happened, I’d love to know. I’d also love to be able to download the materials so I can use what I already paid for.

    Michael

    • Login seems OK now. Good question about phone support, though.

      Btw, since this is all new to me I also picked up a copy of Mobile Marketing For Dummies” which I’ve found helpful.

      Cheat sheet is here:
      Mobile Marketing For Dummies Cheat Sheet

      One of the charts reproduced in the book was from this primer that iLoop Mobile did for the DMA:
      DMA iLoop Mobile Primer

      I was specifically struck by the chart called “Mapping Advantages of the Mobile Paths” which showed that Voice & SMS currently are by FAR the best paths to use in Mobile Marketing and that Apps lag so far behind.

      • Awesome Tips, Thank you.

        Yep, the site is up and working now. Phone is still a No Go.

        BTW, where are you holding your Mastermind Groups? Are they physical or so you hold them vida Skype or something?

        I’d be interested in joining a group to bounce ideas.

        • Hi Michael,

          It’s actually not my mastermind group – it’s being held by Shawn Swinigan of Front Door Media – technically it’s closed, but he said on the last call that if people within the existing group wanted to invite people in we could do that. I’ll check with him on that. It’s done via GoToMeeting.

          • Michael jackson says:

            BTW, every time there has been a webinar, I’ve had either a class that I was teaching or a photo shoot. *sigh*

            So, if you talk with Shawn, please tell him that I’m still on board. One day, I’ll WILL be able to make it. As a matter of fact, I’m rearranging my schedule just to do that.

            MJ

          • Hey Michael,

            I just passed your message on to him via chat and he was happy to hear from you.

  3. Hi Paul,

    What do you sense about Mobile Monopoly so far? I recently found it via internet search, looking into a way to make money, through my own hard efforts.

    Kevin

    • Hi Kevin,

      #1. It’s a real opportunity, still very much untapped.
      #2. Local Mobile Monopoly training is “OK”, but I recently found the “Mobile Marketing For Dummies” book and find that it is actually better.
      #3. I do think its helpful if you are extroverted, not afraid to talk to people, etc….or you can HIRE people who are.

  4. There was a phone service at one point. I talked to them several times and they kept referring me to the email support team – which did indeed know a lot more. I think they probably weren’t worth the money to keep on board, so I got an email back saying that they’d closed down the phone service.

    Also- there’s been “radio silence” for the last two weeks from Adam. There was one 3-hour webinar where he and another gal were doing everything they could to help everyone that was in on the call. But on the site, the next meeting was postponed and now that date has come and gone.

    I don’t think this is a scam. The info has been very good and the concept was well thought out (at lest from my point of view). The last thing I saw from him was an unglamorous “backstage tour” of their office – felt very real. It seems to me that more than anything, they’re likely overwhelmed – perhaps inundated with support questions since this is so new.

    I’d love to hear about better alternatives than YEP text. I like what I have of it (although I’d wished for a better example than a bar – which doesn’t appeal to everyone).

    Thanks so much for this very helpful site!!!

  5. James M. says:

    I find the concept of this product very intriguing. Would just like to get some feedback from people who have actually purchased the product and are working the system selling the mobile marketing text system to local businesses. I’m not as interested in being an affiliate for the time being but just want to know if I spend the time and money to buy the product and learn it that businesses will actually want/need it and most importantly be willing to pay for it.

    Does anybody have any actual real life results with the product that can post on here? What was the negative feedback on Mobile Monopoly? Adam claims on his sales page that some lady in Atlanta is making 30k a month and signed up 185 people in one month…..would love to know how truthful this is and if someone puts in hard work and studies the system if similar results are achievable. Thanks for any input!!!!! Cheers, James

    • James,

      There are a lot of unknown’s with that lady’s case study. It IS possible if she already had many existing contacts, possibly her own sales force in place and is a natural sales person. I’ll be posting more information here that I get authorization to post from the Front Door Media Group, there is a LOT of good stuff going on in that MasterMind group, but since it’s a closed group at this point I don’t want to breach any of the informal agreement we have in that group. But I’ll get you what I can.

      I CAN tell you that mobile is absolutely still very much a ground floor opportunity. I.e., It’s real.

  6. James M. says:

    Thanks Paul for your information……Would love to keep up with progress and results from others that post on this blog. I love the fact that it seems like a simple business plan and a wide open market and in this economy businesses need something that brings them more clients quickly and without a high cost. I will probably go ahead and purchase the course and do my own test and then report back to your blog to help others out. Wishing you the best of success!

  7. I am still having a problem understanding the yep text service.
    Why would anyone or anybusiness need a texting service when one can get
    texting (unlimited texting) with their regular cell phone plan.
    Also
    isnt yep text expensive?

  8. I plan on making good of this somehow…
    Local biz does sounds like an untapped market–
    especially selling mobile websites to them.

    Is there really a better alternative to
    the Local Monopoly generated websites (Mobi Makers)
    that are free to the Local Mobile Monopoly purchaser
    but you can sell to a local business.

    How do you SEO these sites?

  9. I was one of the first to purchase Local Mobile Monopoly and was initially excited. However, that excitement quickly became disappointment within a few days. As previously mentioned in other posts, support was lacking. The phone number only had some poor guy, who wasn’t involved in the technical end, answering the phone. We talked about ten minutes and he confided that he was there just to push people to the “ticket system.” A ticket system that was ignored, for the most part.

    There was once a forum where members could go and exchange ideas. When the complaints about lack of support began to be heavily posted, the interactivity of the forum was removed and he wiped it clean of all comments. They now want no communication between members.

    The real kick in the ass is that Horwitz and Local Mobile Monopoly is not giving a good deal on his plans you are supposed to mark up and resell. He has already marked them up, and tells you to sell them for 12 cents per message, plus charge for Keywords, plus charge a set up fee. Add to that the fact that I would have to run my clients ad campaigns. Unlikely to be successful when he charges far less than that, should a business find his YepText site and enroll directly.

    If Horwitz put as much effort into customer support as he did making his videos and presentation, he might actually keep intelligent people from asking for refunds.

    I quickly asked for a refund. I found the real source to buy text messages for .02 cents each and it provides me with a far better operating platform. In fact, I sell my plans to my clients for less than YepText does and still make a nice profit on every plan. My clients now have their own username and password to enter my platform and run their own ad campaigns. All I do is bill them every month. I could do the same as Horwitz and have other schmucks buy my “service” and resell it, but like Horwitz I’m not willing to provide the real work of answering questions and walking people through technical problems. The only difference is that I’m not going to take their money before walking away.

    You don’t need Local Mobile Monopoly. Do the legwork and the research. Setting up your own platform and SMS system isn’t as hard as it sounds.

    • OK, then tell us how to do just that.

      • Read the last paragraph, second sentence. This may be blunt, but too many people expect others to hold their hand with free info. I will tell you this though, everything can be found using Google. You just need to connect the dots.

  10. Paul,

    If I understand correctly, when you send out text messages that are directed from a business to a cell phone holder (customer) with advertising, and that business has no business relations with that customer, the message will be a Spam.

    Besides, unlike sending a text message to a computer, where it’s free to a customer, text messages may cost the customers (if they don’t care about that kind of messages). After all not everybody has unlimited plan on their cell phone.

    Also, if a business does not have a data base of previous customers, does that mean that a person, offering to advertise, need to seek/provide email addresses of potential customers.

    Probably, I am missing something in the general idea.

    Would appreciate advice.

    Thanks.

    • Hi BK,

      1. Yes, you have to disclose that there may be charges for the customer/prospect depending on their plan.

      2. You have to get permission from the customer/prospect to text to them. There are various ways to do this, including with standard optin forms as well as asking them to text a keyword to what’s called a “shortcode” – you can see how that works in the video below.

      I don’t quite understand this question:

      “Also, if a business does not have a data base of previous customers, does that mean that a person, offering to advertise, need to seek/provide email addresses of potential customers.”

      Can you give me an example of what you mean?

      • Paul,

        Thank you for a comment.

        My question is based on this premise:

        The person offering advertising services to a business can either:

        1. Use the data base provided by that business (Presumably, the busines had some cell phone numbers / email addresses collected previously, and has not used or used unsuccessfully in the past)

        2. Or the business has no cell phone numbers / email addresses of potential customers. In which case, the person OFFERING to advertise has to somehow get hold of that information.

      • Paul, thank you for the comment.

        My question is based on this premise:

        The person offering advertising services to a business can either

        1. Use the data base provided by that business (Presumably, the busines had some cell phone numbers / email addresses collected previously, and not used or used unsuccessfully in the past)

        2. Or the business has no cell phone numbers / email addresses of potential customers. In which case, the person OFFERING to advertise has to somehow get hold of that information

        • That’s right – however, if you’re using previously collected numbers you can only use those for exactly what the customer provided their cell phone numbers for. I.e. if they gave the cell phone number to just get coupons, you wouldn’t be able to send them txt messages about nonrelated things.

  11. hey Matt
    I understand you dont want to hold peoples hands and answer a bunch of questions.
    I am wlling to do research for myself–I just dont know where to start or what to look for.
    Forgive mt ignorance but what do you mean “platform”???
    Again I know you dont have a lot of time to help poor schmucks like me out–but can you just give me a bit more info on how to procede
    and what you mean by platform?
    Or perhaps is there another course that would help answer some basic questions.

    thanks for helping,
    Preston

    • Hi Preston,

      The “platform” is nothing more than a control panel for your clients to gain access to your service. You control the number of messages assigned to each client and the length of time they are good for (monthly, yearly, etc.). The industry is moving quickly and companies are providing people with the ability to set up their own “white label” business. What “white label” means is you are licensed to use their platform, but your clients will never see who you are licensed through. All url’s appear to be your own, including the platform url. Horowitz is using this type of system, as he most certainly didn’t develop his own and his markup in price indicates it.

      Be aware that licensing isn’t a flat $XX purchase. It is an ongoing fee, but is easily absorbed when you start getting clients. To get you started, one company can be found here:

      http://www.mobile-marketing-platform.com

      But, look around, as there are others. Do your research, and talk to each of them directly so that they understand your skills (or lack of) in setting up a site. Most will assist. If they don’t provide you a contact phone number at some point, avoid them. MAKE SURE YOU GET A CONTRACT WITH THEM!

      Realize that this will eventually be the only way to survive if you get into the business. Customers will smarten up quickly. Those that are paying Horowitz’s suggested .12 cents plus keyword plus setup fees to his minions will quickly realize they are overpaying and will migrate to somebody like me who is charging less than .045 for my largest plans.

      Then there is the hurdle of getting the word out about your service and depending on the area you live, it might be a challenge. I happen to live in rural PA and I can tell you that many of these backwoods hicks looked at me like I had 2 heads when I tried talking to them about mobile phone advertising. I was told, “I only use newspapers,” as I stood in an empty restaurant at 6pm. Others told me, “I don’t text” (not comprehending that it only matters that their customers text).

      However, once they saw their competition with a sign in the window, they started seeking me out, rather than the other way around. It then starts to snowball. It only took about 2 weeks to see my break even point. I also offer bonus texts to my clients if they steer other businesses to me.

      Startup costs for you could be from $1000 – $2000, depending on how much you advertise and who you go with as a supplier, but you’ll be a survivor when the Local Mobile Monopoly crowd withers on the vine. For some, this may be a substantial sum (I was there once myself, having gone through a bankruptcy in the early 90′s), but if you can find the cash and afford the risk, this really is a ground floor opportunity, as it is still in it’s infancy for the small business market.

      That should get you started and give you some info about the hurdles without the Horowitz “Make $30,000 in a month” bullshit.

      Good luck.
      Matt

      • Hi I just wanted to say how annoyed I am with Local Mobile Monopoly,
        I have signed up and can’t access Yeptext because it is not available outside the U.S, plus mobile makers isn’t working.
        The support emailed me back but with no useful information.
        It’s just typical you don’t get told these things before you hand over your cash!
        Cheers
        Steve from the U.K

  12. Jennifer says:

    Hello,

    I also purchased Local Mobile Monopoly. While I like the concept of it I am disappointed with the lack of support. Sometimes just a simple question takes forever to get answered, and even then it’s not very clear. I think part of the problem is that Adam teaches one way, and Mary (the lady in Atlanta supposedly making $30k/mo) tells us another (she’s been helping Adam with the webinars). They never give in-depth explanations on how anything is supposed to work.

    I like what Matt says above about having my own white label business. I think there’s one called AdKing, but I don’t remember the details. What I’m wondering is, is there an alternative to the MobiMakers website software? Adam makes it sound like there’s no other easy way to make a mobile website or QR code except for using his software. If there’s an alternative anyone can recommend, I’d appreciate it.

    I’m glad I found this review, it let’s me know that while Local Mobile Monopoly & YepText may not be the best, at least this is a real business opportunity that I can still pursue.

    Thanks for all the help!

    ~Jennifer

    • Jennifer says:

      I did a search on Google and found a site called Mobeezo that I can use to make mobile websites. They even have a free option, which I can use to practice with. Their monthly plans are quite a bit cheaper than Adam’s MobiMakers software. Has anybody used this service, and if so, would you recommend it or something else? Thanks so much!

      ~Jennifer

      • Hi Jennifer,

        Just a little FYI. It appears Mozeebo requires you to place the mobile website on their server. If you go the white label route for providing SMS services ask whoever you talk with if their platform has the ability to create mobile websites (or at least, individual pages). The one I use allows my clients to create their own page using a simple WYSIWYG editor, and I then charge per page created. Everything stays with me and is then billable. Surprisingly (or, maybe not) most just want a page to direct people to a menu or a coupon image, rather than creating another complete website.

        I think you might run into a problem in keeping your clients using Mozeebo. Once they realize they don’t need you and can get their own account with Mozeebo, they will likely go direct to the source and cut you out after the first month.

  13. Shannon says:

    I have been using the local mobile monopoly course here in my area. I am a chemical manufacturer of soaps and detergents for Restaurants. Some of my clients are Chili’s and Hard Times Cafe. It is by no means as easy as what they make it out to be. It can be done, but you are better off trying get a reseller contract for a service and offering both text marketing and the service. Noone is going to pay you the kind of money Adam is talking about. You will be lucky if you get 200.00 bucks a month per restaurant. Basically that is all the service is worth. Once the owners of the rest. see how easy it is they aren’t going to pay for this when they can do it themselves. You are going to have to work at this. Just look at the reviews for text marketing on the warriors forum. Most people offer a white label service for around a 100.00 bucks a month. Mary Whithite said herself she passed out 7000 flyers promoting her service and I think she said it was 4 years ago.

  14. Hi there. I wish I would have found you BEFORE I bought Local Mobile Monopoly…! Now it’s been past the 60 days and I don’t think I can get my money back at all. I LOVE the idea of making money with mobile marketing but I still haven’t found an honest answer as to how you can do that.

    The thought of knocking door to door to get business doesn’t thrill me at all. What about a site that will walk small business owners through how to set up their mobile campaigns? Or you can charge a fee to them to do it the first time.

    Did anybody out there make money using Mobile Monopoly? Are people today making money us AdMob ads? Are they really as cheap as they say?

    Also – anybody making money with QR codes? They are popping up everywhere but I think most people don’t know how to do it!

    Anybody interested in a MasterMind group for mobile marketing? We could arrange some sort of skype call or something?!

    Frustrate but know somebody’s got to be making money with mobile marketing somewhere!

    P.S. Is Mobile Marketing for Dummies worth the money?

    • Patti,

      You can check out Mobile Marketing for Dummies at your local bookstore or get it through your library and decide for yourself – one thing it will definitely do is show you where all the most reputatable resources in this industry are.

    Just want to say thanks for all the info posted. I was looking into the product,but like many I’m sure have been burned 2 many times. It’s good to find a place where people are HONEST!!!!! Thanks so much

  16. This mobile monopoly is like the internet. When the internet first came out people where making big income if they understood what to do to make good money. This mobile monopoly is new, and the same thing, but the training videos are step by step to help anybody who doesn’t know what they are doing.

  17. Thank you all for the reviews, I have read each and every one. It’s good to see people helping each other. I am interested in this type of business for my small town business friends. They are using facebook messages at the moment and some not at all. I will get the book and keep reading your posts.
    Thank you for your input!

  18. Thank you for the information in your post and the comments. I am an affiliate marketer and I was thinking about marketing Mobile Monopoly and Local Mobile Monopoly. I am no longer convinced that these two products are as great as I was led to believe!
