Countdown To Profits is a “system” that’s been heavily promoted by a lot of big name marketers, yet despite it’s seemingly solid claims it turns out it’s not quite everything it’s made out to be.
In fact when you discover what it’s really about, and how much it really costs – you might find yourself quite shocked.
Thankfully in this review of the Countdown To Profits system I’ll be giving you all the details you need to make an informed decision as to whether or not you really want to get involved with it.
It’s also worth mentioning that I’m absolutely not affiliated with the Countdown To Profits system. The reason I want to make that very clear is because there’s actually several other reviews that have already been written about this system but unfortunately they contain biased information because they’ve been written by affiliates (people who are getting paid commissions to get you to sign up).
So once again before I start I just want to make it clear that I’m not an affiliate which means you can rest assured that you’ll be reading the honest truth written by a third-party “outsider” who has no interest in trying to get you to sign up. 🙂
Sound good? Sweet – let’s get rollin’…
What Exactly Is Countdown To Profits?
The Countdown To Profits system claims to be the be-all and end-all for making money online. Essentially it claims that it contains everything you need to “be your own boss” and start making “real” money online…. Instantly ?.
The reason for the emoji is because I’m always very sceptical when a program/system/course claims that you can earn money right away as it’s usually a hallmark of a scam… Especially when they’re talking about making enough to quit your job right from the off.
You see there are a few things that can get you moving straight away such as paid survey sites but generally these payout less than 5 bucks a gig so the chance of you generating any life-changing or even job-quitting amounts is pretty slim.
On the other hand it’s certainly possible to generate hundreds (and even thousands) of dollars online but it ain’t gonna happen overnight – it takes work & lot’s of it! So yeah, when a system promises you can get going immediately with little to no work & quit your job – it’s safe to say alarm bells start to ring.
P.S. If you are interested in learning how to build a large income online (which of course requires work) then you can read my guide here on how to get started.
Let’s just take a look at some of the other extremely bold claims made by the Countdown To Profits system, straight from the horses mouth:
- “Make Money & Change Your Life NOW”
- “No Prior Experience or Skills Required”
- “Start Earning Immediately”
- “$500 Profit Guaranteed” – This one raises a SUPER red flag
You gotta ask – why are they so interested in getting you to make money that they’re willing to guarantee you $500 profit? And what’s in it for them?
Again, alarm bells!
Also something else that I’d like to bring to your attention is the fact that after entering your phone number (to receive “VIP Status”) you’ll begin to be bombarded by voicemail & SMS messages. Sure, you can opt-out but I don’t like the fact that they’ve really hidden the part about being opted-in in the first place.
Take a look:
Not cool right? And just to also add that said “VIP Status” gets you absolutely nothing extra. ?
Okay so by now you probably get the point that the Countdown To Profits system looks dodgy as heck, but can you actually make any money with it?
Are ANY of the claims it makes actually true??
Well they kind of are, but at the same time they kind of aren’t… Let me explain…
Basically Countdown To Profits isn’t actually a stand-alone “system” like it’s made out to be. It’s actually a sales funnel that’s been put together to get you to buy into an online business opportunity named MOBE.
MOBE is what’s known in the industry as a high-ticket network marketing opportunity, which basically means that it’s expensive & that you’ll be required to recruit other people into the same opportunity to actually make money (kind of like how a pyramid scheme operates).
Now technically MOBE is legit because they offer & “sell” products, unlike a pyramid scheme which doesn’t contain products & relies solely on the opportunity of making money to get people to sign up.
However, despite MOBE offering products most people are sold into the opportunity on the premise of making money (just like you are at Countdown To Profits). It’s literally all geared towards making money and there’s very little emphasis put onto the products themselves… Which by the way you have to buy to be able to make the huge commissions they promise you.
Here’s a super quick run-down of how the opportunity works:
You sign up to find out more & then you’re pushed into buying the products (because you need to buy the products to be able to make commissions on the products).
The products teach you how to promote the sales funnels to other people & you’re told you need to start getting other people to buy-in so that you too can start earning commissions on the products.
Basically you sign up to make money & you make money by showing other people how to make money.
Make sense? Heh. 🙂
So, My Overall Thoughts on Countdown To Profits…
Whilst this system has been promoted by some people who may be referred to as “big name” marketers, if you’re personally recommended to join it by anybody my advice to you would be to close the page & run.
At the same time I’d probably also recommend unsubscribing from further emails off them as it’s clear that if they’re trying to get you to sign up to something like this then chances are they don’t have your best interests at heart.
YES you can make money from this system, however there are a few important points to consider:
Firstly, it’s no where near as easy as it’s made out to be (and certainly not instant).
One of my biggest issues with this system is that it’s full of false promises & hype. Whilst you could potentially make money with this system if you tried really hard it’s certainly not going to be easy & it’s certainly not going to happen overnight. I don’t like being lied to and I wouldn’t like to be a part of something that lied to me from the off.
Secondly, it’s going to cost you a LOT of money.
The reason MOBE (the company that Countdown To Profits is trying to sell you into) can offer such high commissions to it’s affiliates is because it’s products are so expensive – and when I say expensive, I mean like $50k expensive… Yup, and don’t forget that you MUST buy them to earn commissions on them… So you’re going to be spending a LOT of money before you even get started with this system.
Finally, it’s borderline legit.
I’m not gonna say if it’s legit or isn’t legit, but heck it’s pretty borderline. There are many, many genuine ways to make money online – do you really wanna be caught up a scheme where you’re making money by teaching others how to make money who are then teaching others how to make money? You’ll need to be good at recruiting, good at talking & good at teaching people if you really want to see any sort of decent level of success from this program.
So to finish…
Countdown To Profits receives a whoppingly large thumbs down from me. It’s a program that claims to help newbies make easy money but in reality it’s a scheme designed for the gurus to make money off the back of newbies buying into the hype.
If you’re new and you sign up to this then you’re chances of making money are slim – yet whilst you’re out there struggling you’ll be required to keep paying ongoing monthly fees & you’ll be pressured to upgrade to even higher (more expensive) levels to receive more training which claims to have the answers you need to find success.
Eventually you’ll probably step back & realize what’s happening so you’ll leave the program with probably thousands less than you initially started out with.
This review might seem a little harsh but that’s just the bottom line of how these things work – and I hope you appreciated me giving you the honest insight. More importantly though I hope I was able to help you keep a hold of your hard earned cash!
