Right from the start, Profit Maximizer is full of hype. One example is this idea that lots of people are watching the marketing video as you are. This is a form of social proof – if everyone else is looking into the site – it must be great.
Of course, the information can’t actually be accurate. For one thing, it doesn’t change. With any video (especially one as hyped up as this one), you find some people watch the whole thing while others quit immediately. Yet, that number hardly ever changes and when it does, the changes are much higher than you’d expect.
On a similar note, there’s this little box that tells you how many free copies are remaining:
This one also changes. It will get all the way down to one free copy and then just stay there. Again, it’s not real. If you refresh the page, the number magically goes back up. In both cases, the numbers are the result of an algorithm and they have nothing to do with the people watching the video or the copies remaining.
The site also has the very frustrating feature of an exit pop-up. If the site things you are trying to leave, it will bring up this popup box, with more marketing hype. I had that same box come up more than 20 times in the course of this review, which got old very fast.
Everything about the site is manipulative. It also looks professional, and the owner is going to get lengths to try and get you to trust what the site claims. You shouldn’t though. People get fooled by the promoted approach but they never make the money the site claims. Instead, they end up losing money.
What’s It All About?
Profit Maximizer is promoting a very familiar gimmick. It highlights on the idea that you can earn money safely, quickly and easily through a ‘never seen before system’. Sure, the specific system might be new, but it is almost identical to many other systems out there.
So, let’s start with the basics. What is it?
Although it isn’t immediately clear, the site is promoting an approach called binary options trading. It’s a horrible approach for making money. Yet, it looks and feels professional, so people fall for it.
Binary options is a form of trading. You are looking at the way that assets move in the market and trying to predict this movement. It sounds easy, especially as Profit Maximizer promises software that guarantees your profit (which isn’t actually possible).
The reality is that markets move very quickly. You might be able to predict a long-term change by knowing the markets, but that isn’t what you’re looking at with binary options. Instead, you are trying to predict very short-term changes.
The odds of getting this right are basically 50/50.
At the same time, you have to win more than 50% of the time just to break even. As you can imagine, this makes the odds of making money pretty slim.
But… It’s Free
If binary options was actually free, I wouldn’t have such an issue with it. After all, you wouldn’t really be risking anything but your own time. That isn’t the case though.
You don’t have to pay for the actual software that Profit Maximizer is promoting. However, you do have to pay a deposit with the binary options broker. In this case, the deposit is $300, which is pretty pricey.
The owner of Profit Maximizer gets a commission from that $300, which is the whole reason he is even promoting binary options to start off with.
Calling this a deposit is really misleading. Generally, if you deposit money, you can get it back out again. With binary options, there are so many restrictions on the money. Typically you have to verify your identity and make a certain number of trades to get money back out. So, even if you manage to get money back, it won’t be as much as you put in.
Overall, this approach means that you are risking a lot, and the potential to earn money is much less than the site implies.
Why take this much risk to earn a bit of money? Instead, you can learn how myself and others like me make money online and learn how to build a successful business of your own.
Whatever type of product you decide to promote, it's important to own your own website to grow your business.
Parties only work if you have a network of friends with money in their pockets. Network marketing only works if your friends are interested in joining business opportunities.
With a website you can reach the entire world, and only promote great products to people interested in what you have to say. Plus, you open up doors to multiple streams of revenue like affiliate sales, ad click revenue, paid advertising, and even selling your own digital products.
