Have You Ever Heard of Frank Bishop and Prime Traffic Network?

Question:

Dear Steve,

I originally arrived at your website because I was scammed by the Real Talk network years ago.

My question is have you ever heard of Frank Bishop? He proposes to be a self-made billionaire and has a web hosting/affiliate marketing program which with a CloudURL account ($104 for one year) and an investment of $1500 (to purchase leads from primetrafficnetwork.com) will help you build a very profitable online affiliate marketing business.

Marvin

Answer:

Dear Marvin,

OMG, Real Talk Network. I’d forgotten all about that one.

I have not heard of Frank Bishop so I did some research.

Let me first say that the quality of any opportunity has more to do with the individual’s ability to work an opportunity and find success by luck or inspiration.

Any sales pitch that seems to say if you buy their product you will then find sales success, is worth a second look. If it’s so easy and successful then why do people sell solutions like that and not farm them themselves?

I did stumble across a post online that sounded a bit similar:

Do You Have a Question You'd Like Help With? Contact Debt Coach Damon Day. Click here to reach Damon.

I answered an email by maxprofitpartners.com sent to me, telling me that I could earn 80,000 by a certain “launch date” if I followed their plan. You first get a phone call from Joe Franco assuring you everything is on the up and up, followed by carefully timed phone calls from all others involved. They send you emails outlining program, set you up with a domain name, and then after a while they tell you to buy 5000 leads at 1.00/lead from LeadGeny. They continue to train you and hook you up with hosting, etc. and then 2 days before “launch date” they want another 9,000 to pay CloudURL to run your campaign. I stopped there, and when I asked for my money back for the leads I bought, LeadGeny refused and sent me a csv file of 5,000 worthless leads that legitimate companies won’ touch. When I called LeadGeny back, they told me to try to find some other scam company like them that would use the leads. I don’t do business that way, so I’m stuck with 5,000 leads I couldn’t give away. I’m sure maxprofitpartners and LeadGeny are in cahoots, but LeadGeny is the one with my money, and I am lodging a formal complaint against them. – Source

CloudURL appears to be a near plain vanilla web hosting company. Their least expensive package is $7.95 a month.

I have no clue what kind of leads the program you are being pitched has. But how good can a lead that may have been sold multiple times really be? What constitutes a lead they are selling? Are they hot, cold, fresh, used, or abused?

While you are being told you will be able to create “a very profitable online affiliate marketing business” you didn’t say what the underlying product actually is. So far the sales pitch seems to sound like another get rich quick scheme.

I hate to be cynical but I wonder if you are being attracted more by the promise of easy success rather than by the quality of the underlying product or service.
