Website: Cash With Oz
This is sales page designed to funnel people into an old multi level marketing program and to make matters worse, you are paying almost twice the price. It's not a scam but there are definitely some major elements left out of the sales pitch you should know about.
What Is Cash With Oz?
I've been coming across quite a number of these sales videos over the last few months and they all have the same core approach... tell you very little about the actual product, make it sound very easy to profit with and charge twice the price for an existing product.
The actual product being sold is called My Top Tier Business, or MTTB for short. It sells at the standard retail price of $49 when purchased directly from the MTTB website. I won't link to it here but you can easily verify this with a simple Google search. There is more to the product than this though... much more.
The Core Product Is a High Ticket MLM
The initial cost to get involved with this is either $97 or $49 depending on where you buy, however, this is just the beginning. MTTB is nothing more than a 'front end offer' that warms people up for the core product... a high ticket mlm program called MOBE.
Whoever is behind the CWO website is unclear since they are choosing to remain anonymous however, it's either the company itself or another MOBE affiliate who gets paid if you join through them. The reason these kinds of sales pages are becoming so popular with these guys is likely because MOBE has taken a pretty solid dive in popularity over the last couple of years. Luring people in with re-branded versions of the same program is probably a last ditch attempt to keep an otherwise dead program afloat.
How The System Works
Once you sign up to MTTB you are taken through 21 steps of relatively basic Internet marketing training primarily designed to lead you into your first purchase of a $2,497 MOBE re-sell licence. With this license your job is then to begin recruiting others into the exact same system.
To be fair, there is nothing wrong with promoting a high ticket mlm company provided they are selling genuinely valuable products and are marketing them in an ethical way. The general gist with these products is personal development and training to help you recruit people into same system.
Is The $500 Guarantee Legit?
Not quite. They don't mention this in the sales pitch but in order to 'qualify' for the $500 guarantee you MUST complete all 21 steps within 21 days which means purchasing the re-sell license for $2,497.
There are no free lunches in this world and it annoys me when sales material like this so blatantly leads people into the wrong conclusions about the true terms and conditions.
Featured On The News? Nope.
Another common trick used by gurus with these kinds of sales pages is to pretend like they have some kind of affiliation with a reputable news network or that they haven been 'seen on' one.
For a fact, the Cash With Oz program has not and almost certainly will not be featured on any news channel. This is a very common trick used among low quality websites to build trust with you and convince you to buy more readily.
The Testimonials Are From TOP Affiliates
One thing I thought was worth mentioning is how most (if not all) of the testimonials featured have actually been MOBE affiliates for years. For example, the guy in the CWO promo video shown below is David Gilks who has been a top recruiter in the company for over 4 years.
I actually managed to find the exact video made by David in 2012 that was used in the CWO video. To be clear, I am not saying that David himself has done anything wrong or unethical in any way. He seems like a decent guy and may not even know he is being featured on the CWO website.
I am simply making the point that he (like most other affiliates in the promo video) have been with this company for years and worked extremely hard to get results. I can't stand sales material that claims "all you need to do is sit back in your PJ's and watch the money roll in" or something to that effect. That is nothing more than misleading hype.
Selling Your Personal Information
Probably the most annoying aspect of the CWO website itself is how they are willing to share, rent and sell your personal information once you place an order through them.
Buyer agrees that all personal information about the buyer or his or her buying habits and preferences, including address and phone number, may be placed in a general database and agrees that this information may be shared, rented or sold to third parties.
They primarily use this to call, text and email spam you with all kinds of offers. Selling, renting or sharing personal information to third party marketers (or to anyone for that matter) is completely unacceptable in my opinion and it's not how ethical marketers operate.
It is certainly possible to make money promoting MOBE and I won't label it a scam. That said, I do have issues with the way in which the CWO website is promoting it. In particular, all the details they leave out of the sales pitch which was apparently to 'protect their money making secrets'... well I guess that part is true.
To qualify for the kinds of high ticket commissions required to make a system like this work you'll be up for self development product purchases totalling well over $50k. Again, nothing wrong with high ticket products but I do think people are being misled about what to expect with marketing hype like that. Worst case, recommend you buy straight from the source as there is no need to pay double the price for the same product.
