Ok so, like, I have mixed feelings about this…
I opened one of the spammy emails sitting in my inbox at random and clicked on the enclosed link. After all, the email promised me that I would be making money within minutes. That was obviously a lie but I couldn’t resist having a look.
The link opened to a refreshingly ‘low hype’ sales video. It was so inoffensive I watched it all the way through to the end. I was completely taken in by the sales pitch but dismayed to find the membership fee was $49… per month! I obviously attempted to close my browser. Too expensive for me.
Upon attempting to close my browser I was presented with an URGENT alert message to stay on the site for a very SPECIAL offer – a 30 day trial for just $4.95. That was closer to my price range. Of course I would have preferred a free 30 day trial, but I uncomfortably parted with $4.95 all the same.
What is Income Elite Team?
Income Elite Team (also marketed as IncomeElite.com) is a membership site offering access to a comprehensive range of affiliate sales training materials, including step by step video tutorials and lots of other resources. Membership also entitles you to access loads of free PLR stock which is cool.
What’s good about Income Elite Team?
I have to admit I’m pretty impressed with the sheer volume of detailed information and training materials available in the member’s area. There are video tutorials to walk you through absolutely every possible aspect of making money from affiliate sales. The bonus PLR stock is a real bonus too, and all worth a read in itself.
If anything it’s a bit of information overload – you would definitely need more than 30 days to plow through all of the videos and white papers. It’s almost as if a couple of guys have pooled all of the resources they’ve accumulated over years of trying different programs and marketed it as a membership site… in fact I strongly suspect that’s exactly how Income Elite Team came into existence.
What’s not so good about it?
There is a 24 hour ‘challenge’ designed to get you off to a quick start in affiliate sales. It’s terrible – basically worthless. It’s based on spammy practices that will get you and your website banned by Google AdWords among other things. Not cool.
Another thing that’s pretty poor is a complete lack of support for the members area. I noticed a couple of links that didn’t work so I used the ‘contact us’ link to send an email to support. There was no reply. Ever. I also tried to email a query about cancelling my membership. Still no reply. Definitely not cool.
Hmm, mixed feelings. I can definitely see the value in this program, but given the unprofessional lack of support I would have to lean towards TWO stars. I would recommend the $4.95 30 day trial, but not the sustained monthly membership.
My advice? Take the 30 day trial, download all of the PLR stock, watch as many videos as you can, and then get on out of there.
It’s also worth noting that there are two complaints lodged against IncomeElite.com with ScamBook.com to the value of $24.92, one of which relates to the lack of support I mentioned earlier. The second complaint however, is WEIRD if you ask me – the user starts the complaint by saying “I didn’t know it was a scam until I saw UK on the bottom of the website” – wtf? I didn’t know all programs from the UK were automatically scams… lol! Take that one with a grain of salt.
