This week I got to take a break from reviewing rehashed binary options “products” and instead got to look at eMobile Code. I’d explain to you exactly what it is straight away, but even now I’ve not really figured it out.
It seems to be a mixture of hype, exaggeration, lies, and smoke and mirrors. I’ll explain my experiences below, and see if we can figure out exactly what label to put on it.
If you’ve read any of my previous reviews, you’ll know that a lot of the time I can detect BS just by watching the sales video. I majored in film at university, so call it “an experienced eye”. Or maybe the fact that I have just reviewed dozens of these products already lets me know when to run a mile. I’ll give you a clue: it’s usually every time.
The eMobile Code Video Review
When it came to checking out the eMobile Code’s video, there was a lot on display. The whole thing was set up a bit like a 1980s infomerical, which makes sense. These programs are so rehashed and over-done that they can’t help but feel old fashioned.
There’s the usual shots of Rolls Royces, Yachts, Mansions (they always seem more like showrooms, given that they have no furniture or sign of being lived in) and there’s the usual story of the rags to riches average guy. In short, everything feels a little staged.
The thing is, while I can always tell “Ah..here comes the usual BS” within a few minutes, I like to find a few more things as evidence before I really form my opinion that this product is garbage, so here it is.
1.) I’m pretty sure the first guy is a paid actor. I’m sure I’ve seen him in Entourage or somewhere else. Any takers?
1b.) I’m surprised the other people are paid actors. Their acting is terrible.
2.) Saying “You’re extremely lucky you’ve found this” every 30 seconds is a standard sales technique.
3.) Using the word “free software” every 30 seconds (followed by a $49 upsell) is a standard sales technique.
4.) Saying “Only a few people know about this” then having 133,000 Facebook likes doesn’t really add up.
5.) Saying “If you don’t watch to the end, you’ll miss out and regret it. Your chance will be gone” is not only patronizing, but a flat out lie. I shut down the video five times over five days and the free offer was still there.
The best part was when the “son” spontaneously joined in the video via an iPhone FaceTime call, and was asked “on the spot” to talk about eMobile Code. He then managed to launch into the best sales pitch I’ve ever heard. Totally unprepared though right?
These types of videos always have the same story to them. They throw random screenshots of income at you, they throw fast cars, big houses and big boats at you. They also throw words like “free” “easy” “lucky” and “act now!” at you left right and center.
The funniest thing of all? They never really tell you what their product is about, or when they do, it just doesn’t make sense.
What IS The eMobile Code?
I guess that eMobile Code DOES tell you what it’s about, kind of. It’s a “state of the art ‘military grade’ email server that creates “mobile” websites and blasts out emails to millions of people promoting products to them”. Oh sounds fancy.
There are still so many questions about this though. Even after looking around inside, I found it hard to get clear answers. What products? What sort of websites? What did you say about the military? None of this matters really, just sign up and buy the software already. No wait, it’s free. No, wait, it’s $49 dollars. I’m confused. Basically, when you sign up to get the free software, you’re directed to a payment page. If you leave, you’ll get offered the product for $19. Next up, is $9.
This happens with every.single.product.
A Lot Of This Product Doesn’t Make Sense
There’s just so much that doesn’t add up.
1.) The software creates mobile sites and sends out millions of emails per day.
2.) The people who use it claim to “just send a few emails a day”.
Doesn’t add up.
1.) You make more money because people check their cell phones 7x more a day.
2.) If you’re sending emails, how does it matter if they check their phone or pc?
Doesn’t add up.
1.) The software creates mobile sites for you.
2.) Virtually every website works on mobile. You might be reading this article on mobile. The days of WAP are long gone. There is no “unfair advantage” to having a mobile site. Who buys something via a mobile anyway?
Doesn’t add up.
1.) It’s “free software.”
2.) You can get $50 off and buy it for $49.
Doesn’t add up.
Are you getting the point?
What About The Screenshots?
If you put aside the fact that screenshots can be faked very easily, the screenshots don’t tell you anything about the earnings. What is the source, whose account is it? Why are the screenshots all from Clicksure, the capital of “questionable products”?
Why won’t you tell me what these sites sell? Probably because they end up sending fake traffic your way and you don’t make any money. Hey, they give you free coaching for 60 days to get started though. I am pretty certain this is just to keep you interesting long enough for the 30 day money back guarantee to expire.
The Bottom Line
Despite what they may claim, this is not a revolutionary product. The creator William McKnight is not one of the top 10 Internet Millionaires. He’s not even on the list.
This is just another well-made, cleverly disguised waste of your time.
