What is Power Lead System (aka PLS)
The Power Lead System is essentially a business in a box, an all in one marketing platform. Upon joining, you will have access to marketing tools that will help you market PLS as well as your business. This product originally launched in 2013 but has since gone through some changes with regard to membership/affiliate cost options. I have listed the most recent membership plans below.
PLS Membership – (30/month) – Customer only with access to the marketing tools but does not include affiliate commissions
Basic Membership – Lead Lightning – Affiliate can earn $6 for every Basic Lead Lightning Membership sale.
Silver Membership – Affiliate can earn $6 for every Basic – Lead Lightning Membership sale. A residual $15 per month for every Silver Membership sale.
Gold Membership – Affiliate can earn $6 on every Basic – Lead Lightning Membership sale. A residual $15 per month for every Silver Membership sale. A residual $20 per month for every Gold Membership sale plus the 50% matching bonus on the entire pay-line of all your roll-ups.
Diamond Membership – Affiliate can earn $100 puls $25 to their sponsor.
Platinum Membership – Affiliate can earn $400 plus $50 to their sponsor
This product is all about convenience. None of these tools are actually exclusive to PLS. You can certainly find them yourself for free as well as paid but it would take quite a bit of time and research. And, of course, if you are new, then it will be very difficult for you to know where to go or what products are actually comparable.
While I very much like the idea of convenience, I do not necessarily agree with paying someone for something I can create on my own.
So, what are these tools? Are they any good? Would you be better off searching for such a package on your own?
Ahhhhh, great questions my friends.
In a nutshell, the following items are an example of what you will receive as a customer of PLS. The extent and quality of these tools will depend on your level of membership.
- Auto Responder – Done for you email campaign
- Capture pages
- Sales Pages
- Custom google hang out pages
- Video sales pages
- E post cards
- Video Training
- Ability to see who is clicking on your links and opening your emails
Power lead system boasts on their website that they are strictly paying you a commission for the products you sell; however, that is misleading. You must recruit people into the business to make any real money.
As a matter of fact, the entire business model is based on recruiting. You are paid commissions based on who is in your front line and then there are roll ups indicating when your sponsor will also be paid. This is a MLM regardless of how many times someone may say it is not.
If you were to sell a product and get paid a single commission for that product, you would have a straightforward pay out, not a MLM. But once you start adding uplines, downlines, sidelines and whatever else, you now have a MLM pay out structure. MLM’s focus on recruiting and PLS is not any different. In everything you do, you will be promoting their systems or their systems along with your own.
Power Lead System is a MLM for sure, but is it a pyramid scheme as well?
You see, these are two entirely different things. If you want to learn more about MLM’s please go to What is MLM About. In my opinion, the Power Lead System is a borderline pyramid scheme. Why? Because the products are not truly their own ( you can find them onilne all by yourself) and they are not in and of themselves marketable. It is the recruitment of people that make this opp work. If people only signed up for a $30.00 product with very little value, then how long do you think it would take for PLS to go under? That is the basic definition of a pyramid scheme. However, I will say that the FTC considers this legal since there is a “product” being offered regardless of whether or not we find value in it.
I found several support options available and actually did receive a response within hours of submitting a ticket. Having support is key and they do appear to have a solid support system in place. Here are a few of the options available.
- Help Tab in back office that allows for an email to be sent.
- Techsupport@pricelesspossibilities.com or per their own words
- Phone calls (only recommended as
a last resort) usually get redirected to Voice Mail where you can leave a
- You can also try to obtain support from their Facebook page.
Who is Power Lead System for?
This product is essentially for anyone who has a MLM/Networking marketing business or any other type of online business to promote. Keep in mind, you will also be promoting their system in the process and if you are okay with that, then it may be a good fit. Your auto opt in messages will direct people to your website as well as to PLS.
This product is also for someone who does not have their own company to promote but wants to get into something to make extra money. You can strictly promote the products within PLS and nothing else; however, you are going to pay a fee just to be an affiliate.
Who Is Power Lead System Not For?
This product is not for someone who is looking to get started in online marketing and learn what it takes be successful long term. If you are looking to build a website, create great content, learn search engine optimization etc. in an effort to rank in the search engines and gain traffic to your website/business, then do not sign up for PLS as they will not be teaching these techniques. Do not get confused as to what a lead generation system is for and actually learning the process to market online. Two different things.
PLS is not a get rich quick scheme. Like any marketing product, you will need to put in effort to see positive results. Even with a lead generation system, there is work that must be done.
- They do allow a one week free trial as a customer of PLS, which I ALWAYS recommend
- Some of the tools are beneficial such as the built in auto responder
- Too many upsells
- Too expensive for what you get
- You have to Pay to be an Affiliate
- The training section is not designed in a way that makes it easy to figure out where to go first, second, etc.
This type of product prays on those who are less knowledgeable, the beginner if you will. As someone who is new to the online marketing business, you do not need to pay for this sort of package. By simply gaining some knowledge via step by step training, you will be able to know for yourself what tools are necessary and require your money and those that do not. In my opinion, you cannot put a price on knowledge! Being an informed consumer will give you the ability to come up with your own marketing tools and be able to advise others as to when to pay and when to run.
You will not learn how to optimize your site for search engines, which means your site will not rank unless you already know how to do that. This product will enhance your already established business, it will not create a business for you.
If you are new to this and have never learned the basics of internet marketing, how do you plan to get visitors to find you and opt in? I do not recommend using PLS’s suggested advertising techniques such as spamming your friends on Social Media with cheesy text links or spend hours clicking on sites for credits on traffic exchanges, or submit articles and/or e-zine ads? It will not take you long to figure out those methods are not the best way to market and certainly not the best use of your precious time.
PLS and or other systems like it do not allow you take what you learn and be successful online. You must already be a success online or at the very least have a system in place that is working with regard to obtaining visitors to your business. This system is all about capturing the lead not how to get them in the first place.
I can tell you this, there is a program available for free where you can get started with step by step instructions as to how you can build your business and become an authority online. Rather than join and promote a program like PLS, why not learn how to create your own business branding YOU!
If you are serious about creating a long term online business, check out my #1 recommended program. Trust me when I say you do not need to be a rocket scientist to build a website and learn the techniques that will allow you to move from total beginner to someone who has real knowledge about what it takes to be a long term success in this business. Getting leads should not be your first focus when starting out. There is much more you need to learn before even beginning to worry about that.
Do you have experience with Power Lead System? I would love to hear about your experience with this product, positive or negative. Or, if you simply have a question, leave a comment below. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Have a great day!
