Product Name: Force 5 Income System
Product Owner: Bryan Winters
Advertised Price: $47 or $197
What Is It?
Refer people to your Force 5 Income Website and have them refer people to their own version of that website.
Then, use the back-end of the website to send email blasts to the leads that you (and the people under you) collect.
It's not the worst product I've ever seen, but I have issues with quality and the premise of the whole thing.
If you refer people to FFI, and they refer people to FFI, and they refer people to FFI. Then everyone sends out email blasts to the same people…isn't that a bit crazy?
But the major thing I dislike about this system is that people that get sucked into this thing will receive multiple emails from EACH person, all promoting Clickbank trash about how to make a million bucks.
Before You Buy
Bryan Winters is not stranger to creating internet marketing products. In fact, this product is pretty much an exact copy of a product he released some time ago called 5 Figure Day
What do you do in 5 Figure Day? Get a free website from Winters. Promote your link to people and collect leads. Get credit for leads that your leads bring in. I can't remember if email blasts was part of that one, but the similarities up to that point is undeniable.
I didn't see the training inside Force 5 Income System, but if it's anything like the training for 5 Figure Day, prepare to be disappointed!
What I Liked
To be honest, having people collect leads for you is a pretty sweet idea. If only it were that easy!
Also, I was quite shocked that he went through the whole process of how the product actually works in the sales video. This is not a typical guru strategy, so I have to hand it to Winters on this one.
At least you know what you are paying for before you buy, but do I really need to reward this guy for doing something he should do anyway?
What I Didn't Like
Lack of training
There are entire courses and people spend years trying to figure out how to generate a big enough email list to earn a living by email marketing. “list building” is a huge industry, and profiting from those lists is a mystery to most. Did you really think that for $47 you could master the art of lead generation and internet marketing?
I'll admit that I haven't been inside the members area of FFI, but I did find a little treat left in Google!
This is some kind of website template that was indexed that Winters forgot about. Anyway, though we can't see exactly what the quality of training is inside those things, it looks to be a resource list (that everyone else is using) and a PDF guide that you can read through in 20 minutes. Hm. Master the art of traffic in 20 minutes…Amazing!
Anyone who does pay to get in, feel free to chime in in the comments.
And an additional note, gurus are completely obsessed with this solo ad thing. Basically, a person builds an email list, then “rents” it to other people. So someone may have a list of 10k subscribers, and you pay them a fee to blast out your offer to their list.
I think that buying and selling lists is illegal, so this is a work around. Anyway, my comments about quality below apply to solo ads as well.
What About The Buyers?
This seems to be the one thing that no one is talking about: Who the hell is going to buy this stuff?
Have you ever received a suspicious offer from a person you don't know? Did you ever get bombarded with tons of emails all claiming to teach you the secrets of making money online?
This is what you will be subjecting your list to!
Not only will YOU be sending them promotional emails, but the person that referred you will be sending these to the same addresses, and the person that YOU refer will be sending them as well!
And because it's very likely that everyone involved is a newbie or struggling marketer, it's very likely that you'll choose the same or similar offers.
What's also extremely likely is that everyone will just copy/paste the autoresponder messages given to them.
Email Title: Make a Million Bucks Today Bro!
I wasn't going to release this til next month, but things got super urgent!
Someone's trying to steal my secrets, so I decided to let it out to the world.
YOU are the first one I emailed!

(you won't see this offer again!)
Does that sound like a totally idiotic message? Well, that's what you'll be sending people.
Ok, maybe you can scam a few people once, maybe even twice, but what happens the third and forth time?
If you abuse your list by sending the trash that Force 5 Income recommends you do, all subsequent emails will go straight to the spam folder.
This is NOT a revolutionary system, and I think there are major issue with the way that leads are collected. This is an abuse of email marketing, and if you send out emails this way, YOU are the bad guy.
