I should know better! I DO know better.
So then, why on earth did I ever join ProWealthSolutions???
Ok, first it was just plain curiosity that got me. When I got a ton of "URGENT" emails, all in one day, from many different heavy hitters, I knew this would be a HUGE program in terms of the number of lemmings (er, I mean people) joining. So, I signed up to take a FREE tour just to see what all the fuss was about.
Well, as soon as I saw the Powerline Structure and the usual hype which accompanies these types of programs, I went back to my usual business of making money online...NEVER to return to that website, or so I thought.
Then came the first of those ever-so-exciting emails from the company, with the following subject line: "Cynthia, You have money coming - Chris just Upgraded".
Oh JOY, money coming! Well, I KNEW BETTER, so I just filed that email away and went about my business.
Then came another email, and I must have been bored at that particular moment, because I actually opened the email, and I was amazed to read:
As more and more people continue to recognize ProWealthSOLUTIONS as the most POWERFUL opportunity on the internet, Charles Doe (name changed for privacy), who was placed below you in your ProWealthSOLUTIONS Powerline, has just upgraded to FULL MEMBER.
That means, you are now qualified to earn a GUARANTEED CHECK just by locking in your position."
The email went on, telling me that I had hundreds of lemmings (er, I mean people) joining MY Powerline at a phenomenal rate, and that:
"Not only do you already have a guaranteed check coming in so long as you upgrade your position to full member before THURSDAY, but with ourhuge compensation program, you can also earn up to $1,092 per month without ever referring a single person.
Well, it sure sounded good, but still, I KNOW BETTER, so I pretty much disregarded this email and filed it away along with all the others I was receiving on a daily basis.
Then, I noticed that more and more BIG Marketers were joining and promoting this thing. Now, surely they can't be THAT naive, right?Surely they know better than to promote this sort of HYPE to their huge lists of trusting lemmings (er, um, I mean people). WHY are they stooping so low?
Hmmm (the sound of self-doubt creeping in)...maybe they know something I don't. Maybe I'm missing something here. Yeah, that must be it. I guess I better take a better look at this PWS thing. Yeah, next time I'm bored.
Well, I did end up having another moment of temporary boredom, and so I took a GOOD LONG LOOK at the "Fastest Growing, HOTTEST Program on the Entire EARTH! And you know what? I came away with the same feeling as before.
My exact feelings were that this is just the same, worn out hype that I am sick to death of, and that I could NEVER promote this even if I did decide to upgrade in it myself.
BUT...hmmmmmm (the sound of unrealistic thinking creeping in), since I could potentially make $1,092 per month WITHOUT having to promote it, I could upgrade and then just see what happens, right?
And hey, if the products are good enough, it won't be a total waste of money even if I don't get all of those lemmings (er, you know, people) into my matrix when the deadline to upgrade is finally here.
NO NO NO! I KNOW BETTER. I KNOW the matrix won't fill under me, and I won't get any spillover, and that the ONLY way to really make any money in a matrix is to recruit, and I could never promote this thing, and anyway, I HATE POWERLINES!
And so I went back to business as usual. Good for ME!
UNTIL the Final Countdown Day. That's the day when you have to Lock In your Position to get placed in the matrix before all those poor saps who don't know enough to Upgrade.
Well, I was still holding out UNTIL I received an email from my sponsor, a heavy-hitter who knew how to put just the right "spin" on his email to rope me in. I just have to say that as soon as I upgraded, I knew I had made a mistake. It just didn't feel right, and as I said before...I knew I would NEVER be able to promote this thing to anyone because it just didn't sit well with me. But, it was too late...the damage was done.
Now I had wasted $70 on the most ridiculous program going. But WAIT! Maybe the products are good! And just maybe I'll get some spillover in MY matrix!
HaHaHa! That's a good one!
When I logged into my account I found that there were NO products whatsoever, and I had a whopping 3 lemmings (um, people) below me in the matrix. So much for making $1,092 without referring a single person!
Folks, let this be a lesson. I know I will NEVER be taken in by a Powerline program again, and I hope you won't either.
The TRUTH is that the Powerline is just a marketing ploy made to make you THINK that you've got oodles of people in YOUR downline, when in all actuality you are lucky if ANY of them end up under you. And IF you make any money at all, it will likely be only a few dollars unless you were on the frontline to your sponsor, who must be a heavy hitter.
I've learned my lesson, and I'm done with anything resembling a Powerline.
