It’s a rare day when I will start off an article by advising you to avoid something, but I really got angry by this system so in short FreeCommissions.com is one to be avoided!
Why? It is a full blown system to help you part with your cash and not earn money.
“This is the only free commission system that actually allows you to make free commissions with zero work”
Zero work is a lie, you will need to work very hard indeed to pay for everything they try to sell you. But I am getting ahead of myself.
FreeCommissions.com Sells You Bling
The initial sales video is full of bling: fast cars, exotic locations and beautiful women. The actor portraying the system creator Tim, is arrogant and uses a sales tactic that belittles you into making you think that you really don’t know anything, and can’t do anything without this system.
“If you can turn on your computer *snigger* then congrats, you have what it takes to make $487,000 this month.”
I personally was instantly turned off by this video and wonder how it would even work to convert people to buy the product, but it must as it’s still out there and plenty of people promoted it.
The testimonials are blatantly filled with actors. If their poor acting skills don’t give them away, it even says in the footer text directly below the video that actors are used.
The sales pitch follows the usual scam sales tactics we’ve seen. There is the usual showing off of the commissions earnings but with no proof of their validity and in the video, actor “Tim Alexander” shows you in “real time” his “real earnings.” But, it’s not real time, and I sincerely doubt those earnings are from him following this system.
He even tries to strengthen his appeal by using some nondescript charity work, which again, I highly doubt he (the real creator of this system, not the actor) actually does. A little proof would go a long way.
The video goes on and on about how awesome Tim is and how he is different from the rest who are all scam artists and in such an arrogant way that it sickened me.
I actually gave up. Decided to walk away and review something else. Why then have I written this?
Because normally, when you try and leave this type of site, they have a pop up enticing you to stay on the site usually with a discount. It’s considered a last ditch attempt to win you back.
This system has FIVE!
That’s just crazy, and it angered me enough to sit through the rubbish and try and save some people out there from being caught up in it.
If you do take a look at the offers it does allow you to get the system for a cheaper price.
You can go from the $49 down to $9 and even a $1 free trial. Yes that’s right, a $1 dollar free trial. The video states it’s free for 3 days, but you actually have to pay them a dollar.
After purchasing the $1 dollar free trial, I got hit up by not one, but 7 different upsells.
Now an upsell for those of you who aren’t clear is like being offered an extra-long warranty on electrical goods. With these “click button, easy success” products though, the original product is complete crap. The owner knows this and creates an upsell stream to sell you packages that cost thousands of dollars that will “help” you online.
The first upsell was for $297, the second $197, the third $175, and so on. Each upsell forcing you to watch a video before declining, each video becoming progressively more and more insulting and rude, trying to scare/shame/bully you into buying it.
Inside “Free Commissions”
It was astounding how little “meat” there is to this system. Most of the back-end is covered in upsells and advertisements, some blatant, some more subtle.
Webinars – You can sign up to these, which will inevitably try to sell you expensive products you don’t need
Telephone Coaching – Here you can sign up to spend more cash on a coaching system which will no doubt turn into a sales funnel to try and get more cash out of you.
Affiliate Links – Even the website they offer is nothing more than an affiliate link to hosting.
Adverts – Yep, I just paid some money to be serviced with adverts.
The Bottom Line
There is nothing of substance here, just some basic templates, plugins and videos, but nothing that would justify even the $1 dollar free trial (that still makes me laugh).
You need to realize one thing about these systems. The only thing being sold here is…
The second you sign up for the $1 “free” trial or the $49 initial offer, you’re immediately put onto a sucker’s buyer’s list. You just told Tim Alexander or whatever guru that is behind these things that you have money that you’re willing to part with. This particular guru will milk you for as much money as he or she can.
When you stop buying, you’re sold again. Through joint-venture deals and list-swapping. Mr. Guru tells his friends that you’re a sucker and soon they have a whole new line of “products” complete with upsells to offer you. The cycle repeats until you’re completely out of money. At that point, you’re insulted and told “you didn’t really try. Anyone can do this. Go take out a loan and buy a special coaching class.”
The point of these courses are to extract as much money from you as possible and that’s all.
As I said in the first sentence, avoid this one at all costs.
