Profits 25 is a combination of a few different things. One aspect of the site is how it acts as an advertiser network. The other aspect is the potential to actually earn money through the site. I imagine that most people join the site for the latter of these two aspects, as there are better advertising networks out there.
An immediate problem that I have with the site is the lack of basic information. The home page says nothing about what the approach actually involves. If you want extra information, you are sent to a contact form to fill out. The lack of basic information is concerning, because many people are likely to go to the site looking for a way to earn money.
Despite this issue, the site does have a lot of information about other aspects.
For example, there is a page on the revenue share approach and another on the sponsoring approach. However, those pages include a decent amount of technical language. So, if you aren’t familiar with the concepts of ad sites, most of the information the site provides probably won’t help.
My biggest problem is that the site offers no real information about the advertising that you are paying for. It isn’t clear where the advertising actually takes place or how high quality it is. That’s concerning, because advertising is the main product from the site.
When it comes to advertising, where the advertising is placed and who sees it is a pretty significant thing. After all, if you are going to invest money into advertising for your site or your product, you want to at least be sure that potential customers see it.
But here, you don’t have that option. Instead, you have to rely on Profits 25 and assume that they are actually offering good advertising. This seems very unlikely as the site is clearly more interested in making money and in its revenue program than it is in advertising.
Advertising And Revenue Sharing
Essentially, members at the site pay for coupons that go towards advertising. So, you have your own link and banner ad that you are going to share among members of the site. You also have to click on the ads from other people. The number of ads you need to click on depends on how many coupons you have bought.
This reminds me a lot of the Banners Broker scam that was shut down recently, and another product called My Advertising Pays, which I also gave a poor rating.
The money making aspect comes from the way that the company makes money for your clicks. According to the site, the money they make is then shared among members. As such, the only real product that the company has is advertising. That is a relatively weak product, because there are so many other places that you can turn to if you actually wanted to get advertising.
Additionally, it’s hard to know whether the advertising the site offers is any good.
The site gives no information about where the advertising you purchase actually occurs. So, you have no real way of knowing whether you are going to get any worthwhile traffic out of the process or not.
That’s pretty concerning when you think about it – because advertising is literally the only thing that the MLM is selling.
There is also a second aspect of the site. Basically, you recruit other members into the company, then earn some commissions from their actions. This is a basic MLM structure, although it only goes down four tiers.
While members don’t have to follow the sponsorship approach, the site strongly implies that this is the most effective way to earn money.
Even though it sounds good on paper, this approach is actually one of the reasons that the system of Profits 25 simply does not work. To actually make a realistic amount of money with the site, you need to have a constant stream of people that you are recruiting into the company – especially as many are likely to leave.
Doing this is never easy.
Even in a large, well-known MLM where you are selling products that people actually want, the process of recruitment is difficult, and getting people you recruit to stay is even harder. All of that gets so much more complicated when you are dealing with a site like Profits 25, as it is only likely to appeal to a small audience.
Profits 25 Is A Risk
Any time you buy into an online business, there is a little bit of risk. One risk is that the business simply won’t perform as advertised. In the case of Profits 25, I’d say this risk is pretty high, especially as there is so much information that the company doesn’t provide.
A second risk is that the company will go under. If this happens, you lose any revenue sharing that you were getting from it, as well as all of the time and money that you invested. The problem is, Profits 25 can shut down out of the blue, because their revenue sharing isn’t a product.
With the company, the revenue sharing process is an added bonus – advertising is their actual product. So, at any point they can potentially stop with the revenue sharing process, or even just shut down the company entirely, and there really is nothing you can do about it.
There are also other things about the company that stand out as red flags.
One of these is the testimonials. Normally, companies highlight the best testimonials on their site – ones that highlight just how great the company is. However, in this case, most of the testimonials either say very little or aren’t particularly helpful. In some cases, they aren’t even in English, which is confusing as the site is clearly targeted towards English-speaking readers.
It’s unclear whether or not the testimonials are real. I would imagine if they were faked, the site would have gone to the effort of making sure they were better. However, the reviews don’t really sound like things that people would actually write either.
Regardless of whether they testimonials are real or fake, they certainly don’t offer any real evidence that the site is as effective as it claims to be.
Making Money Online
With Profits 25, you are supposed to be making money through a revenue sharing model. The site isn’t clear on all aspects of how this works, so if you get involved you have to take a decent amount on faith.
One immediate issue is that whether or not you make money is entirely dependent on whether the company makes money. In turn, their income is dependent on people recruiting into the company. Over time, the amount of people recruited is going to dry up, so the profits of the company will too. This makes it pretty likely that at some point the company is simply going to disappear, taking the money from a lot of people along with it.
All-in-all, these issues mean that your chances of making money from Profit 25 are pretty slim. It’s hard to know from the site whether the company pays out at all, but even if it does, the company isn’t likely to be around long.
This makes the site a pretty poor option when it comes to making money online.
Here’s the thing… why take that chance? There are more reliable, more effective ways of making money online that let you be successful in the long-term, rather than taking a chance that probably isn’t going to pan out.
The method that I personally recommend and follow is known as affiliate marketing. It is a powerful way to make money because you earn money by promoting products from other companies, but at the same time, you are the one in control. Once you learn how, the sky really is the limit with this approach and you don’t have to worry about companies like Profit 25.
Whatever type of product you decide to promote, it's VITAL that you generate leads to grow your business.
But let's face it, "parties" are boring, and no one likes the annoying Facebook friend who's always promoting a biz-op.
That's why I use this lead generation system. Learn how to generate leads outside of your circle of friends and family and discover what it means to truly own your own business, rather than just be a cheerleader for one network marketing company.
