I received this question in my inbox today from a beginner, regarding my email & blog posts yesterday about Paul Evans Simple Six Figures program vs. Jimmy D. Brown’s Membernaire.
Paul’s membership sites program sounds great.
Actually it sounds too good to be true.
Can I really be set up in 30 minutes?
How long before I can expect to start making money?
How much does the traffic generation cost?
Sorry to sound skeptical but there is so much CRAP out there
promising fast easy money.
I really enjoy the info. you share and you don’t seem to me like
you would endorse something that didn’t really deliver.
I could really use something like this if it is what it claims to be.
I have built up a large credit card debt buying alot of programs that just
where not any good or too complicated for a non-techie like me to implement.
(Name removed for privacy.)
Here’s my response:
Paul’s membership is great, BUT… if you’ve run up your credit card buying programs and are unable to implement them, then I recommend you do not purchase this course. It is worth the money, involves very basic stuff, and he includes videos to teach you, but I’m more concerned with the lack of implementing the old stuff that you’ve learned.
Make sure you’ve chosen your business model.
Blogging, Affiliate Marketing, eCommerce, Mini-Sites, Membership Sites, etc.
Most of the stuff you see works. That’s not the issue. It’s a matter of putting your blinders on for a period of time and taking one path to success, before jumping into the next thing. (Not that you’re NOT doing that, but I can certainly sense your frustration and would hate to send you down another rabbit hole if you’ve already got a clear plan of what you want to do.)
Rather than spend money on another course, I would recommend that – after you have a clear plan – you hire another marketer to help you set things up. In fact, I ALWAYS recommend that you outsource anything that is a roadblock for you – or that you’ll only ever need to do once. There’s no point in being stuck on something, especially if you’ll never need to do it again.
THEN, after you start marketing and making money, you can broaden your knowledge base. Even if you’re just setting up a blog (MomWebs.com will install it for only $10 with any hosting account) – and you’re experimenting with that, writing some fun content and moving ahead. But, please do not buy another course, until you’ve got at least one website up and running.
Of course, the only exception to that would be if you didn’t know what to do, then I’d say to invest in hiring a coach, like Kelly McCausey at www.MomsBizTalk.com to guide you to find what you want to tackle first. 🙂
I hope that helps. Yes, the course is great, and I recommend you check it out WHEN you’re ready to tackle a membership site. 🙂
If it’s ok, I’d like to copy your email (with your name removed) to my blog. I think it’s important for others to understand how to get past the point where you’re at. Perhaps it will help others to get some clarity. Let me know. I won’t post it without your permission.
Of course, she gave permission.
If you’re READY for Paul’s course, then I do highly recommend it.
However, I want your trust for the long haul rather than your money today.
- Yes, Simple Six Figures by Paul Evans is a great course.
- Yes, he simplifies it very well and breaks down each component – but – only buy it if you’re ready and willing to take action on the program. 🙂
- No, it will not cure all your ills, magically grow a money tree in your backyard, or jump off your hard-drive and do the work for you. (I WISH!)
If you’re ready today, the link is: Simple Six Figures by Paul Evans.
If not, you know where to find it later. 🙂
Have a FANTASTIC day!
