    I'm not familiar with cyclers, but I got an interesting email
    from a friend who convinced me to give it a shot.

    Here's the email I received ...

    "Hey Michael!

    Myself and many other top marketers have been
    anxiously waiting on the sidelines to get into this.

    One of my marketing friends has been building a team for
    over 4 months (over 30,000 people) who will be joining
    this shortly.

    Because of those reasons I'm going to keep this short,
    because timing is critical... you will earn a lot more
    if you get in fast.

    [link removed by me]

    It just started right NOW... and shortly people
    will be pouring in, but I'm one of first to know and
    pass it on.

    In short...

    It is run by people who have an impeccable track record.
    You have to do NO recruiting and you will see why later.

    Get the best position, join fast:

    [friends name and his special offer also removed by me]"

    If anyone has any experience with this type of program
    (cyclers), please let me know. I went ahead and spent
    the money to join, but I can get a partial refund within
    30 days.

    Thanks Michael

    Hi mountainmom5 and Seth,

    mountainmom5: Hmmm... so how do you get paid?

    Seth: more details please : )

    Push Button Extreme JUST LAUNCHED on January 21st.
    They have an EXTREME Matrix that is paying out $495
    per week, $1,980 per month, and MORE... Just "Get in
    Line and Get Paid!" is their slogan.

    The claim:

    If you have been looking for an easy home-based business
    then here it is. There's No Recruiting, No special skills
    required, no experience needed, no hidden costs, and no
    marketing if you don't want to.

    Here's how it's supposed to work:

    As soon as you lock in your position, everyone else will
    be forced into their extreme matrix after you. This will
    allow you to hit the top of the matrix and Get Paid
    faster.

    From the testimonials - there are many members who
    have "hit the top" and been paid multiple times.

    Their Lead Capture Page templates really do look nice:

    You will have access to a capture page creator, an
    auto-responder, and plenty of professionally designed
    templates to create your very own splash pages with.

    I read somewhere:

    "It's so simple to use a child could do it. Just imagine
    building your own massive mailing list like the pros do."

    They really are easy to set up and there are some
    pre-written emails created for the auto-responder.

    All in all, it's supposed to be a very simple home-based
    business opportunity that anyone can make money
    online with. If you don't recruit then all you can earn is
    the $1980 per month, but if you do spend some time
    using your internet marketing skills then you should be
    able to make plenty more.

    There are some BIG players beginning to join. I wouldn't
    mind having some of them joining after me. They have
    HUGE lists that they market to.

    Oh yes ... I forgot to mention. They will be issuing debit
    cards that they will be paying out to instead of using
    Paypal, AlertPay, or SafePay etc ...

    I hope this helps,
    Michael

    Cyclers!

    Where does the money come from?

    Yes, there are great sums you can 'earn' but,
    who actually puts money in their pocket?

    And again, where does the money come from?

    I mean why mess around with silly outdated institutions like interest paying FDIC insured BANKS, when you can double your money with 'cyclers'??

    As for my experience with cyclers, I have 'made' quite a few dollars with them.
    Some even THOUSANDS!

    Guess how much I got to put in my pocket??

    I really only have one question - where does the money come from?

    So would this be something that I should jump in on?

    I am extremly busy and just trying to earn a few $$ here and there. Im a college student so things are tough right now. Im just worried about spending money on things that wont atleast get my money back.

    Thanks!

    okay... I went 'inside' and checked it out - normally I don't mess with stuff like this but we do NOT want another ASD deal here![​IMG]

    Firt off - you sign in with your name and email so you can get more details but I am okay with that as that is how a list works... and it is done up good as I tried test@gmail.com [​IMG] and it said it was taken already!

    Anyways, I had to use a REAL email address so they could send me a pin number to enter - which is also good as it is like a double optin...

    Where does the money come from?

    You have to pay to get involved - like a little over a hundred bucks and it looks like you get landing pages etc, as piggybanker stated. I am assuming that most of the sign up money goes into a pool and that gets paid out somehow... oh, there is a monthly fee to stay in...

    What I DON'T understand is how the cycling works - so if someone could explain that it would be cool -

    Please don't tell me we are looking at another one of those programs that tell people join and no recruiting, i.e, get in line and simply get paid. Soo many have failed to see success, because the simple fact is an online biz, or any biz is not going to produce results without marketing. And individuals are wholly not likely to see the results they want without personal promotion. This sounds real similar to the Lawn Chair Millionaire, that didn't make but the owner a millionaire.

    Thanks freecashman - I am NOT promoting it, at least not at this point.... you never know about me...[​IMG]


    No seriously - I am glad if people hop in and join the discussion - please lets be gentlemen and ladies and NOT get all bent out of shape as the ASDers did... that is what we are trying to avoid here.

    I am not one that scoffs at every new thing that comes around either - I just want the nitty gritty of how it all works.... and I was fascinated by the landing pages and the opportunity of building a list.

    To me, spending a hundred bucks is not that much if you really have a chance to build a list....and you are soooo right.

    No marketing - no list.

    Plain and simple.

    Hi mountainmom5,

    mountainmom5: What I DON'T understand is how the cycling works - so if someone could explain that it would be cool -

    Here's how it's supposed to work:

    As new members join Push Button Extreme and existing members
    hit the top, cycle and get paid, they all get placed in the next
    available position in the Matrix when each daily cycle ends at
    midnight PST.

    Those members being placed into the Matrix "push" everyone
    above them up the matrix, closer to the top. Everytime you are
    pushed to the top, you cycle, get paid, and re-enter the matrix at
    midnight PST.

    The EXTREME Matrix has 5 payout levels. They are $27, $57, $97,
    $127 and $167. Each cycle level requires additional members to be
    placed below you in the Matrix before you hit the top and get paid.
    After you cycle on the 5th level you start over at Level 1 again.

    What has me confused is every time I add those numbers up I
    get $475 not $495, so I'm not sure where the extra $20 comes
    from.

    Hi FreeCashMan,

    FreeCashMan: Please don't tell me we are looking at another one of those programs that tell people join and no recruiting, i.e, get in line and simply get paid. Soo many have failed to see success, because the simple fact is an online biz, or any biz is not going to produce results without marketing. And individuals are wholly not likely to see the results they want without personal promotion. This sounds real similar to the Lawn Chair Millionaire, that didn't make but the owner a millionaire.

    You can also earn money from Fast Start Bonuses, Product Sales,
    and their Share in the Profits program, so I would never
    recommend that anyone join without planning on putting some
    of their internet marketing skills to work in promoting their
    business. They do have some very attractive templates to use
    to create your own Lead Capture Pages with.

    I'm not familiar with the Lawn Chair Millionaire, but I am familiar
    with The Berry Tree. I've been testing that one since the very
    beginning and every time I've reached the break even point they
    go and change the payout structure on me. I've never tried to
    recruit so it has been an honest test. I'll be pulling out of that
    one soon.

    As I said in the beginning, I'm not familiar with cyclers but their
    are folks around who have made money with them. I hope others
    will step forward and tell me of their experiences so I can compare.

    I think I'd prefer to give something an honest shot before I judged
    it and called it a scam. They already have forums for that and
    they are filled with people who never put forth any effort in a
    business and when they lose some dough they scream scam.

    I've seen it happen with GDI, but there are plenty of people
    who do quite well with GDI. My sponsor is one of those people.
    I wish I could make a small fraction of what he earns. He's also
    a big promoter of the Spider Web Marketing System that I've
    had no luck with, but then again, I was in the hospital and
    may not have given it a fair shot.

    Best of luck,
    Michael

    Cycler are pretty much just filling up the matrix, and then re-enter the matrix, and cycling out again, and getting paid again. And, certain ones, like this one, takes portion of the payout money and place you in another matrix. The system itself isn't bad. My point is, most that are able to make money real fast have an immediate group of people coming in right behind them. Unless you are in the middle to upper end of that group, you may find that cycling is a bit slower.

    So, I'm not calling it a scam ( I couldn't don't know about it personally), just I really dislike seeing these programs that tell or give people the impression that they don't have to recruit. All these biz opps are about network marketing, and that means you build a business of additional like minded "sales reps/marketers". I always find it laughable that these 'you don't have to recruit' programs, always have people out recruiting.[​IMG]
    And its the ones that are building their business that are really making money with the respective programs.

    Without actually going to the site and just reading the descriptions posted here, it sure sounds like a pyramid/ponsi scheme to me.
     
  14. FreeCashMan

    FreeCashMan Well-Known Member

    There all pyramids, lol. It's the illegal ones that are the problem.
    Fact is most people don't have a serious clue about pyramid scams, they just know the words. We've got ignorant people calling our program that is free and doesn't ask them for money to get started in an online business coming to our calls trying to say we are a pyramid. Which of course is ridiculous because you can't have a pyramid if you aren't asking for people's money.

    People so often are their own worst enemy to success. So they continue to make excuses and not manifest business success.

    Seems like this program is clearly providing some sort of viable product/service for what people pay for, so I don't see where the pyramid comment has any merit. I'm not in the program, but shouting pyramid should come with some credibility and not just propaganda for the purpose of bashing a program.

    If it's free it's not a pyramid scheme if you were made to pay any money then it would be this is the Australian government's definition of a pyramid scheme.

    "Pyramid schemes are illegal and very risky 'get-rich-quick' schemes that can cost a lot of people a lot of money.

    Promoters at the top of the pyramid make their money by having people join the scheme. Then they pocket the fees and other payments made by those who join under them.

    In a typical pyramid scheme, a member pays to join. The only way for the member to ever recover any money is to convince other people to join up and to part with their money as well.

    In contrast, people in legitimate multi-level marketing earn money by selling genuine products to consumers, not from the recruiting process. Be aware though, some pyramid scheme promoters disguise their true purpose by introducing products that are overpriced, of poor quality, difficult to sell or of little value. Making money out of recruitment is still their main aim.

    People often hear about pyramid schemes from friends, family or neighbours. Normally, pyramid schemes recruit members at seminars, home meetings, over the phone or even by mail. Now email, usually as spam, is increasingly used to recruit members as well.

    For the scheme to work so that everyone can make a profit there would have to be an endless supply of new members. In reality, the number of people willing to join the scheme (and therefore, the amount of money coming into the scheme) dries up very quickly. When the pyramid collapses (and they all do) relationships, friendships and even marriages can be destroyed over money lost in the scam.

    In Australia, it is against the law not only to promote a pyramid scheme, but even to participate in one."

    When I come to think of it I could name several businesses which I think are pyramid schemes & are promoted on this forum but I won't only to keep the piece.

    Is anyone here actually doing it and making decent money?
     
  17. Well said Casper.

    Most people will not make any money.

    Who made any money with LawnChair Millionaire and Giblink?

    Making money on the internet takes determination and hard work, not just handing over your money and expecting to earn for doing nothing!

    That's a bad example though, because GDI (Global Domains International) is not a cycler! It's a real networking marketing business that's been around since 1998 with an MLM (multi-level marketing) format. They're located in Carlsbad, California -- about 30 miles from me. Also GDI is a flat $10 / month, and you get a legitimate product / service for that: their server domain hosting of a website.

    I've dropped out of and re-joined GDI a few times based on certain ventures that I've participated in that used their hosting, although I'm saddened to say that I haven't personally made any money in GDI. Tissa Goldavitarme has via his search engine business that I recently invested in. My total cost to deal with Tissa: completing a few TrialPay sponsor offers plus the $10 I paid GDI! [​IMG]

    Push Button Extreme won't be the biggest program of 2009. Not even close! That honor goes to the new MLM Web Prosperity, which had over 100,000 members join in pre-launch alone. I didn't upgrade there for $30, however, when I found out that I didn't receive any of the pre-launch spillover.

    Every business in this post is for real except Push Button Cycler, so please be careful.

    I'm always hesitant about pages that require personal info like an email addy... just to learn about the program. It's more comforting when you can just get all the info up front from a site.

    Since I don't like dealing with it myself, I generally won't be part of any biz that doesn't lay it all out for people from the get go. Makes me feel too much like I'm hiding something.

You are so right on that one I have 2 home businesses & I work on them 8 hours a day looking for new methods of advertising & trying new keywords to get some decent rankings on search engines.
