This eMarketing Online system review of red flags covers numerous parts of the sales process you might want to consider if you’re considering purchasing this product.
Update: 03/24/2012 Tops Home Profit System appears to be related to a new site Big Profits University. The new warning is here.
eMarketing Online System Might Not Honor Refund Requests
One of the most important things you should know about is the eMarketing Online System refund policy, which states:
“It is important to us that you are 100% satisfied with the program. If you are not 100% satisfied with our online money making system then you should be entitled to a full refund of the money you spend on any of our products and services. However, it is important that you make an attempt to utilize all of the tools we have available. If you do not make a true attempt within 4 weeks of purchasing The eMarketing Online System, then our company takes no responsibility and we will not be held responsible for your lack of actions and a refund will not be granted.”
Read that closely. It says that if you do not make a “true attempt” that you won’t get a refund. But eMarketing Online System doesn’t say what a “true attempt” is. That’s called a conditional refund policy and you should stay FAR, FAR away from any product using one.
eMarketing Online System Offers A “Free” Consultation
Although a free consultation might sound great, it’s potentially the most financially dangerous aspect of the eMarketing Online System product.
I can tell you that generally, during the past few years heard lots of horror stories from people being high-pressured to spend thousands of dollars after getting a “free 1 on 1 training consultation” – usually on very bad coaching or worthless traffic, so it’s a HUGE concern anytime I see terminology that suggests they might be contacted by phone by a “coach” to “help” them.
Maybe eMarketing Online System is different, but I doubt it.
Summary Of Other eMarketing Online System Red Flags
eMarketing Online System Red Flag #1) “As Seen On” claim
eMarketing Online System uses the claim “As Seen On” on the first page and then lists these logos:
- Fox News
- Fox Business
The phrase “As Seen On” eMarketing Online System is meaningless. It could just mean that it was advertised on those sites – which is something anybody could do. Although, it’s also entirely possible that eMarketing Online System was never seen on those sites at all.
eMarketing Online System Red Flag #2) Security Seals Are NOT Clickable To A 3rd Party Site
Security seals should be click out to a 3rd party verification site – otherwise they are meaningless. eMarketing Online System uses the following seals that do NOT click out to a 3rd party verification site:
- Verisign Secured
- McAfee Secure
- TRUSTe EU Safe Harbor
eMarketing Online System Red Flag #3) Headline #1 Used By Questionable Sites
The headline of the first page of eMarketing Online System makes the claim:
“In The Next 90 Seconds – Gain Access To A Work-At-Home Job That Can Earn You Up To $87 An Hour.”
That exact claim has been used by hundreds of questionable sites that all look extremely similar to eMarketing Online System.
eMarketing Online System Red Flag #4) Headline #2 Used By Questionable Sites
The headline of the second page of eMarketing Online System makes the claim:
“If You Can Spare 60 Minutes A Day, We Can Offer You A Certified, Proven And Guaranteed Home Job To Make $379/Day From Home!.”
Once again, that exact claim has been used by hundreds of questionable sites that all look extremely similar to eMarketing Online System.
eMarketing Online System Red Flag #5) Bogus Income Projection Table
eMarketing Online System displays a table so that you can imagine all the money you can make by posting links. The problem is that the table isn’t based on reality…not even close. Why? Because the only way you get paid in a program like eMarketing Online System is if someone finds your link, clicks on your link, then takes an action such as buying product, filling out a form (such as filling out a detailed insurance quote form that will allow an insurance company to follow up with them).
In other words, just because you PLACE an ad containing a link, does NOT mean you’ll get paid from doing so. In fact, most of the time you WON’T.
eMarketing Online System Red Flag #6) Bogus Karl Goodard Story
The exact same Karl Goodard Story has been used across numerous questionable websites. The only difference is the fake name of the person the story is about. I’ve made a small sampling of that in this video:
eMarketing Online System Red Flag #7) They can’t keep track of the fake names they use
In addition to using fake spokespeople for their product, eMarketing Online System can’t even keep track of the fake names they use as you can see below:
