It Works Wrap Review – Scam or Legit

It Works Wrap Review:  It Works was founded in 2001 by Mark & Cindy Pentecost.  It is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) that sells body wrap and fat fighter supplements. People that joined the program and become distributors are called “Wrapreneurs.”

WARNING!

While researching on your behalf, I found this interesting lawsuit filed in the Superior Court Of The State Of California County Of Marin, October 28, 2014.  Click here to see the filed court document.

STATEMENT OF FACTS
17. It Works has manufactured, distributed and/or sold the Covered Products containing
lead into the State of California. Consumers have been ingesting these products for many years,
without any knowledge of their exposure to lead, a very dangerous chemical.

18. For many years, It Works has knowingly and intentionally exposed numerous persons
to lead, without providing a Proposition 65 warning. Prior to ERC’s Notices of Violation, It Works
failed to provide a warning on the label of the Covered Products. It Works has at all times relevant
hereto been aware that the Covered Products contained lead and that persons using these products
have been exposed to the chemical. It Works’ website repeatedly asserts that the company’s
products are “safe, effective, and grounded in natural, botanical principles”, and that they are
produced from “the highest quality natural ingredients”.

In an article published by “Truth In Advertising,” you can read the following:

The Florida Attorney General has received several complaints against the company, which TINA.org obtained under a Freedom of Information request. Many of the complaints detailed the how difficult it is to cancel orders and obtain refunds.

As of January 2016, It Works Global aka Crazy Wrap Thing had 281 complaints filed with the FTC. Many of the complaints allege, among other things, difficulty contacting the company and problems canceling auto-shipments.

The FDA also has one adverse event reported for It Works aka Crazy Wrap Thing.

My Final Opinion of IT WORKS

My honest opinion is that if you are a newbie in MLM, I will stay away from It Works.  There is a lot of other companies out there that you can earn real passive income, Wealthy Affiliate is one of them.  But if you are looking to make quick money online you will just get scammed as this DOES NOT EXIST my friend!  In any businesses online or offline you need to work very hard!

Use Social Media For Business Marketing – Learn How

Greeting Friends!  Let me ask you a critical question:

Are you using Social Media for Business Marketing?  If not, you are missing out on great marketing opportunities! Nowadays the use of social media to promote the name of your brand and business and tell your audience about your goods and services is a must!

Social Media is great to get the word out about your business existence, and it helps get the word out!  What is also great about the Use of Social Media for Business Marketing besides exposure, is that you can grow a relationship with your audience!

I recall years ago when I first started in Real Estate I was passing out thousands and thousands of flyers, making cold calls which most of them were leading to rejections… back then, that was one way to get exposure.

Then came along the social media..I saw people posting their business opportunities, Realtors sharing their listings and so on. So I started to blast the media with listing as well.  It didn’t do too well.  Do you know why?  Because I was thinking about me, I need to sell my listings…. Instead of thinking about peoples’ needs. What was their problem and how could I help them.

So yeah, lesson learned!  You must think about your audience NOT you!  You must assist them to FIND a solution to their problem!

Social Media

Social Media Marketing to Succeed

Know Your Audience

Do some research – Find out what is going on within Social Media? What people discuss? What’s their interest? Once you get the answer, then you need to find out how to meet their needs by finding a way to resolve their problems.

Make The Right Choice

Don’t use a gazillion of social media.  Use the best one for your targeted audience.  Better to use less and be more efficient than using a lot and not targeting the right one.

Write A Plan

As you did when creating your website, you should also first write a social media marketing plan. Use a unique strategy for each social platform.

Make Time

At the beginning of each week set up some time to schedule (thirty to sixty minutes) your Social Media marketing content. Make sure your content is helpful to your audience.

Keep Track

Create a spreadsheet with social media content to keep track of when and where you post.

Social Media

Each Social Media is unique so don’t treat them like if there were all the same.  I suggest that you learn to use the Groups function within Facebook.

Get Ready

Don’t treat all social media networks the same.  Familiarise yourself with  Facebook Groups, do the same with LinkedIn and other social media.  Post related content within in the groups, but only keep in mind how the audience differs from one social media to the other.

Be Responsive

Interact with your audience.  Respond to their comments on social media and on your website.  Don’t ignore feedback or comments even if they are negative. By doing this, you will be building a relationship with your audience!

REPORTING AND METRICS

Reporting and metrics all depend on your social media marketing goals.  It can be done weekly, bi-weekly or monthly.  Check your campaign to see what is effective and what is not.

Reanalyzing Social Media

You should reanalyze your social media marketing strategy on a regular basis, just like content on your internet site. Do some testing to see what works best.

Use Facebook Group For Marketing Your Business

Lots of people start a Facebook Group to market their business. Remember what I mentioned earlier:  “Instead of thinking about peoples’ needs…what was their problem and how could you help them.”… therefore if you start creating a group and invite people to join, then spam your Facebook group with links to your website, you are thinking about YOU.  Instead of asking people, join groups and help them with their problems.

3 Key Questions Every Affiliate Should Ask:ebay

  1. What’s going on?  What is causing your current performance?  Once you have a better understanding of the “how” then next will be to find out the “why.”  
  2. Why was it happening?  What are the main factors that are driving your performance? What might have changed that could have led to the results you’re seeing?  It goes both ways too:  increase sale volume or decrease.  You have to be able to determine the what and the “why” then you can do something about it.
  3. What can I do about it?  This is where the “optimization magic” takes place. Okay, here we go!  Let’s say your sale earnings were the highest ever last month.  So you need to dig and research the WHY.  Once you find out what else different you did that month, then you focus more on the change and promote similar items.  The location of the item is something to check also.  If you move the article to a different spot on your site could be a reason for the earnings increase.

Ripoff Report _ Pure Leverage Complaint Review Internet.

Ripoff Report on Joel Therien CEO of Pure Leverage

Ripoff Report on Joel Therien

Pure Leverage, is backed up by GVO (Global Venture Opportunities).  The umbrella company was founded in 1999.

I have also found 4 Pure Leverage complaints with the BBB against their umbrella company GVO:

Pure Leverage is an online opportunity that leverages the power of its member base to make YOU money without experiencing the common challenges, problems, or pitfalls that most go through when attempting to start a successful home-based business.  – GVO Pure Leverage Site

What is wrong with this picture?

Without experiencing the challenges of pitfalls!  Yes, You are right!  This sentence should be a red flag right there!  We saw in my previous post “Fear Of Failures” that experiencing pitfalls is only natural when you are trying to build a successful online business.  Successful persons are individuals who refuse to get knocked down and keep on going.

Pure Leverage, Product Overview

Pure Leverage is a copycat of Empower Network MLM company. It is an”all in one” scheme that claims to do all the hard work for you.

The Pros and Cons

PRO #1  Complete explanation guide provided

PRO #3  Full 30 days money back guarantee

Cons:

CON #1  The blogging page is the same for everybody with the same domain name.

Who is Pure Leverage For?

Pure Leverage is for people who have prior online experience.  I would not recommend this for newbies.  If you are new with online marketing Pure Leverage is not for you.  If you are looking to make money online, then I would recommend checking this online Training.

Pure Leverage Tools & Training  

Web Presence & Site:

  • Web Presence & Site
  • Lead Capture System
  • Auto Responder
  • Video: Email & Streaming
  • Live Conference Room
  • Elite Live Coaching
  • 100% Commissions

Pure Leverage Support

Email Support Only.  On different forums, I saw lots of complaints about their customer service.

Pure Leverage Price

For the core program “Elite Marketing Tool Suite” the cost to join is $24.95/mo:  During the sign up there are optional upsells.

If you want to become an affiliate, it will be an additional $19.95 a month

They also have another program called VIP for $97 a month.  This program offers training and turnkey campaigns.

Upsells:

  • Take Massive Action:   It time payment of $97: It is a Series of videos from internet gurus teaching you how to succeed with the Pure Leverage MLM System. 
  • Smart Marketing Coaching: It will cost you $47/month extra – This is simply a marketing program teaching you how to succeed with the Pure Leverage System.
  • I.P Syndicate Center – $97/month. If you add this program, they claim that you will be able to make a bigger commission.
  • GotBackup – $7.99/month to 12.99/month.  With Got Backup you will receive unlimited backups and unlimited storage for all your data.
  • Online Marketing Masters Workshop – $497 one-time payment; another video series “Take Massive Action.”  It teaches you the basic of building success online

This video is very motivational for many reasons.  Pure Leverage has a yearly event where they gather successful online entrepreneurs.    They give tips on how to reach online success, and this is entirely recorded on video.  You can then purchase his video once a year.

Compensation

You will need to pay the level you want to earn money.  For instance, if you want to make money promoting the VIP level you will have to pay $141.90 per month.  Kind of a bait and switch tactic that we find within the MLM

Pure Leverage is not like a real MLM Model.  They have real tools and merchandise within the platform. You are selling people into your downline, so it is a real business model here.

The purpose of the Pure Leverage program is to get other people to join under you. (MLM)  One of their big selling speech is they claim you get 100% commissions, but you only really get 100% in the first month for referring others into this scheme.

Pure Leverage payment structure

pure leverage paymen structure

This is an MLM scheme.  Why? You are selling the same product you are getting to others.  That is the way you make money!

My Final Opinion of Pure Leverage


My fair, insightful and hopefully the most thorough, opinion of the Pure Leverage System is that it is another MLM Schemes.  In conclusion, you are building somebody else dreams, helping them strengthen their empire instead of creating your own.

Pure Leverage is a program that claims you will get“100% commission”. In reality, it is only for the first month.  They make you feel that when you join for $24.95/month, you have everything when in fact you need to invest $141.90 per month if you want it all and that is beside the upsells that you can add on.

Tips Avoiding Scams

Online scams are schemes to con you out of your money by using the internet and your computer.  But, how?  Very simple!  Stay with me.  They use either a fake website or fake emails!  Listen to this:  there are also many different ways that scammers can get into YOUR computer and steal your money (of course by that I mean going to your online bank account) and they can also steal your identity.  The great thing is that there are ways to protect yourself from that and there are tips avoiding scams.(1)

I have put this article together to help detect scammers and to learn tips avoiding scams.

Crooks use clever schemes to defraud millions of people every year. They often combine new technology with old tricks to get people to send money or give out personal information. Here are some practical tips to help you stay a step ahead. -FTC

>>10 Things you can do to Avoid Scams<<<

FTC has an excellent article about Tips Avoiding Scams (2)

  1. Keep your personal information to yourself
  2. Socialize safely online
  3. Consider the National Do Not Call Registry
  4. Stay away from “guarantees” of scholarships
  5. Don’t buy bogus weight loss products
  6. Understand credit
  7. P2P file-sharing can be risky
  8. Travel scams turn summer breaks into summer busts
  9. Phishing scams reel in personal information
  10. Some employment services are scams

Watch a short video explaining how to get smart with your data:  Click here

How to spot a fake email:

Con artists can easily simulate an official-looking email, using the same logo and email design as the actual company.    I am sure you did get phishing emails that look like they are from your depository financial institution.

Often your guard is down when you receive an email from a company you’ve dealt with before, such as your bank or an online shopping site you utilize.  Always be alert to a fake before clicking on any links or opening any attachments.  Call your bank or any other company to verify if they sent you this email.

How to Find if a Website Is Legitimate

Wiki teaches you how to appraise an internet site’s credibility before using it. Also, you will determine the basic internet safety, how to use Google’s Transparency Report and the Better Business Bureau’s site to verify a web site’s legitimacy.  So refer to those tips before getting involved with any company online, either to purchase goods from, joining an Affiliate Marketing, MLM etc. (3)

Check Website Security Before Engaging

Always make sure a site is secure before entering any information.

Check the SSL CertificateSSL

Here’s how you do that.  If the URL begins with “https” that means the site is secured using an SSL Certificate. That certificate secures any data you may enter from your browser to the company website’s server.  The company must go through a validation process to get an SSL Certificate.

Be careful as there is a different level of validation and some are easier to get.

DV (Domain Validation) is the lowest level.  It validates only the ownership of the domain, but not the legitimacy of the company or organization.

EV (Extended Validation) is the highest level.  With EV the company must prove their identity and the legitimacy of the business when requesting the certificate.  When you look at the browser and see a lock icon and a green address bar that means the site is SSL with an EV certificate.

.’ the Company Is Real

Physical Address And Phone Number – Reputable companies will disclose their information.  If you don’t see any information like a physical address and phone number this should be a red flag.

Return Policy – Most likely reputable companies will have their Return Policy posted on their site.  If you cannot find that, you probably want to move on to the next site.

Prices Are Too Good To Be True – When it’s too good to be true, it’s usually is! Yes, it is nice to find a great bargain, but when it is far lower than a competitor’s site then you should worry! It could be stolen goods, or you will never get what you purchased. Walk away, not worth it!

Privacy Statement – Legit sites should tell you how they protect your information and whether they give your information to third parties. Do not purchase if they don’t have that or if they are giving your information to a third party.

Con Artists Phish for Banking Info Via Text

Look out for text message scam. Scammers are trying to fool users into sharing personal information by sending text messages that look like alerts from banks.

How the Scam Works:

You receive a text message that appears to be from a bank. It’s asking you to update your profile and provides a link to a website. The link may even have the bank’s name as part of the domain.

If you click on the URL, it will take to a form that looks like part of the bank’s website. The page will prompt to “confirm” your identity by entering your name, user ID, password and bank account number. DON’T DO IT! Sharing this information puts you at risk for identity theft.

Protect yourself from text message scams.  

The following are some tips from the Better Business Bureau to protect against text message scams:

  • Just hit delete! Ignore instructions to confirm your phone number or visit a link. Some scam texts instruct you to text “STOP” or “NO” to prevent future texts. But this is a common ploy by scammers to confirm they have a real, active phone number.
  • Read your phone bill. Check your phone bill for services you haven’t ordered. Some charges may appear only once, but others might be a monthly “subscriptions.”
  • Know your rights. Real commercial text messages must provide a free, easy way for you to opt out of future communication. Learn more here.
  • Know how to combat spam textsIn Canada, an anti-spam law covers text messages. Learn more about reporting and fighting spam here.  In the US, forward the texts to 7726 (SPAM on most keypads). By doing that, it will alert your cell phone carrier to block future texts from those numbers.
  • Watch out for lookalike URLs. Just because a URL has the name of a real company in it, doesn’t mean it’s legitimate. Anyone can register a subdomain (realcompany.website.com) or similar URL (realcompany1234.com).
  • Ask your phone carrier about blocking third-party charges. Mobile phone carriers permit outside businesses to place charges on your phone bill, but many providers also allow you to block these charges for free.

Fear Of Failures

Fear of Failures is also known as Atychiphobia.  We are afraid to fail because of the hurt failure might have on us. We look at how we would suffer if we do not succeed. That’s our egos talking.  We find ourselves giving up on our dreams because we are too afraid of leaving our comfort zone. The fear of failures is one of the strongest reasons holding back a lot of people from acting on their dreams.

We don’t trust that we’re being taken care of on a higher level, so we feel we must control everything from the physical level. Obviously, we’re going to feel fear because we can’t control everything in our lives. – Louise Hay

Remember this:  If you never try because of Fear Of Failures then you will never succeed!  Do you agree with me?

Fear of Failures is only natural when you are trying to build a successful online business.  Successful persons are people who refuse to get knocked down and keep on going.

Do you realize how close you are to turning your dreams into your reality?

If you could see how close you are to success, you’d be kicking yourself that you haven’t just reached out to grab it yet.

The truth is, no matter how much you feel like a failure, success is literally waiting to flood your life. The only thing you have to do, is tear down the “Success Floodgates” holding it back.

Fear Failure SymptomsFailure

Do you worry about what other people think about you?

Do you worry about not be able to pursue your dreams?

Do you worry that people will lose interest in your business if you start one?

Do you worry if you will be able to get a business up and running successfully.

Do you worry to disappoint people?

Do you tend to put yourself down before even starting like telling people that you don’t expect to succeed in order to lower their expectations of you?

Once you fail trying to do something, you can’t imagine what you could have done differently to succeed.

You often find excuses that prevents you from starting on a project.

You procrastinate.

Fear Failure Quotes:

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” Michael Jordan
“The only failure is not to try.” George Clooney
“One who fears failure limits his activities. Failure is only the opportunity to more intelligently begin again.” Henry Ford

Dealing With Fear Of Failure

You need to learn to trust Yourself.  OK, but how can I do that?

Replace your fear with the desire for your passion, your desire to live your dreams.  Picture yourself in the present running a successful business.  Trust yourself, The Power within You!  You need to trust that Power and believe that you are being taken care of, even though you are not physically in control of everything that’s happening in your life or around you.

Quit comparing yourself to others 

Focus on your desires, and trust that if you bear in mind your hunger for success, then it will happen exactly as it’s supposed to.

“Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.” ~Unknown

Fear Of Failure

Here’s 3 “Success Floodgates” holding back your dreams:

1. Making Excuses

If we choose someone successful to look at as an example, like Steve Jobs, we’ll see that he never made excuses. When things went wrong, he didn’t blame other people. He didn’t refuse to accept responsibility for his own mistakes. He didn’t try to justify his poor choices.

He didn’t make excuses because he understood that failure is going to happen. It’s not the end of the road – it’s one step on the road to success.

In fact, the next Success Floodgate you have to tear down is…

2. Fear Of Failures

Like I already said, failure happens. But it’s not a dead end – it’s a step forward.

Too many people run into a tiny bit of failure, and they think they’re done forever. They give up immediately, never realizing how close they were to achieve their goals.

The problem is, they take failure personally. They think it means something’s wrong with them. But the truth is, failure is part of the journey to success.

That’s why it’s so important that you stop…

3. Beating Yourself Up

Think about it. Can you imagine Steve Jobs yelling at himself, saying that he’s dumb, or lazy, or any of the other million insults people tell themselves? Of course not!

Successful people don’t beat themselves up. They understand that taking your anger out on yourself only pushes your goals farther away. They still get upset, but they channel those emotions into constructive energy. They use that energy as jet fuel to reach their goals.

The truth about success is that you’re closer than you think. Sometimes all it takes is tearing down the floodgates, so you can let your dreams pour in.

But there’s an even easier way to turn your dreams into your reality, and it doesn’t require hard work, stress, or struggle…

You won’t believe the hidden connection that success experts recently discovered behind people like Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, and even Albert Einstein.

My name is Paul Korzeniowski, and I’ve been an Entrepreneur ever since I was a little kid, from maintaining a paper route to cutting grass and washing cars throughout my neighborhood, I always liked having money in my pocket and I was always thinking of how to work for myself.

Compensation Plan

They pay you 60% commission immediately on all the people you refer to ABM, after your first referral. That is $75 a month for all that choose the “Monthly Auto-Ship” and $900 a year for all that choose the “Twelve Month Pre-Pay”.
