What Is It?
What you are actually doing in Alen's Success Plan is not that important. What you need to know is that him selling you a website that generates $10k per month for just $97 is not true.
Normally I purchase products to review, but if a product spins enough BS in the sales video I feel I have the right to call it out without buying.
There are so many red flags and signals that Alen's Success Plan is not what it seems, that I recommend you avoid it if you are serious about making money on the internet.
I really dislike the way that this thing is marketed. They use common sales tactics (explained below) but take it to the extreme. In fact, they completely lie to you.
It's no secret that having things in limited quantity often creates demand. We saw with the Furbies, Tickle Me Elmo, and even gmail accounts back in the day.
So internet marketers take that concept and tell you things like “only 50 customers get a 10k site”. “Alen” also tells us that he created the video in the morning and so far 43/50 people have signed up.
The fact is, there is no limitation. Visit the site tomorrow and it will say the same thing.
Misuse of Free
Everyone loves free stuff. So how can you make money by giving something away for free?
Marketers have also begun abusing this phrase. As in Alen's case, he says that he's giving us the 10k website for free and we just have to pay a maintenance fee of $97. Actually, the product costs $97, so don't be fooled.
Another phrase these guys love to use is a “processing fee”, so watch out for that one.
Features Versus Results
One last thing that marketers learn early on is that listing the features of a product doesn't convert to sales. What converts well is showing the results of using the product.
Skincare products don't just tell you what's inside package, they show you pictures of young people with good skin. McDonald's doesn't just say their food tastes good, it shows happy people hanging with friends.
So internet marketing gurus have taken this a step further and show you pictures of fancy cars, vacations, and bank account screenshots.
However, I believe that this is bordering on deception. I say “bordering on” because although I can't confirm it, I suspect that the marketer behind this product is NOT rich, and does not live that type of lifestyle.
The audio and video recording on this sales video was quite poor. It doesn't make sense that millionaire wouldn't invest a bit more time and effort to sell his product.
The fact is, “how to make money” products are launched every day on sites like Clicksure and JV Zoo. This is just one of hundreds that are currently listed. Including all the refund and chargebacks, I imaging that our guy “Alen” is just a regular Joe living paycheck to paycheck.
More Scam Stuff
The person behind Alen's Success Plan is likely not even named Alen. At least I can confirm that the picture he shows of himself is not actually him. It's a stock photo
I would guess from that, that the rest of his story is false as well.
I'll also add that ANY marketer, successful or not, would not be so stupid to set a campaign running while he was away on vacation.
There are many things that can go wrong during a campaign launch, some in your control, some out of your control. Leaving things up to fate while you go skiing in France is dumb. Launch your product, make sure everything is running smoothly, then go on vacation.
Anyway, it's just another hole in this story to point out.
One last thing, this guy has not been featured on any reputable new sources. Go ahead, look up Alen's Success Plan on Yahoo! News, MSNBC, and Fox News. Find anything? Nope. Exactly.
$10k = $200k
Oh, one last thing, a website making $10k per month will normal sell between 10x and 20x it's value, so the correct value of a site like that would be up to $200,000.
This is just another bad story by some schmoe looking to have a successful product launch. He's selling a dream, but definitely won't deliver.
