An Honest Independent Profit Center Review
The Independent Profit Center as Reviewed By The HBB Advisor
For several years I have been successfully working what many are now calling "Tier One" or "Direct Pay" programs. I prefer to call them "Direct Pay" programs because as the promoter I get paid directly by the prospect even before the company gets their share.
There are many examples of these "Tier One" or "Direct Pay" programs on the internet. A few include Easy Daily Cash, Perfect Wealth Formula, and Cruise To Cash Vacations. While promoting these types of businesses I have found that the number one reason that a prospect does not join the business the 1 up or 2 up compensation structure that many Direct Pay programs have.
In these types of pay structures a person has to give up all or a percentage of their first one or two sales before they become qualified to get paid directly on each of their sales. Most people just don't like the fact that they have to give up this income.
It was for these two reasons that I started looking different type of Direct Pay program. Specifically what I wanted was a program that met the following criteria...
- Reasonable Entry Level But Still Allowed For A Good Profit.
- A Good Product Package.
- The Ability To Get Paid Directly on sales made but with no qualification criteria. (ie. get paid on their very first sale)
- Outstanding Training.
After looking around for some time, I came across a program called The Independent Profit Center that met all of the requirements that I was looking for.
IPC's products included some software that would actually benefit people in there marketing efforts online. The entry level was low enough that most people could easily afford to purchase the products (which would make IPC easy to promote) and the payments went directly to the person making the sale with no qualifying requirements before gettting paid. So all a person would need to do was make 1 sale to pretty much break even.
After joining IPC I did find one thing that I felt was not good but soon discovered I was wrong. In fact several of the people who have purchased the IPC package from me believe that what I originally took as a negative to be the best part of the entire program.
Most programs, like those that I mentioned earlier, are set up with replicated sites for you to promote. So every ad you run drives traffic to the companies site (with the promoter's id tagged to it), thereby building up the programs reputation, alexa ranking, google rankings etc.
With that type of set up you are never building up your business. Just the companies business. Dan Miller (IPC's founder) recognized this and decided that everyone who joins IPC should learn how to set up thier own domain, their own hosting, and thier own website. Thereby branding themselves and building there own business.
I soon found out that Dan was 100% correct.
The training videos walks everyone... step by step.... thru the process of setting up their own site. And Dan made it very easy to understand and even easier to do.
During my testing phase of promoting IPC the number one thing I heard from the people that purchased the program from me was how much they learned from the training. Especially the set-up portion of the training.
Dan also did a great job on the other parts of the training. Including the best ways to promote IPC.
After joining IPC I decided to run a test for a few weeks to see how easy the program really was to promote. During this time I chose NOT to pay for any form of advertising and I also chose NOT to offer it to anyone on any of my current lists.
Instead I decided to run a few ads on some free classified sites like backpage and craigslist. What I discovered during this two week test was that IPC was easy to promote. My first two sales came within 48 hours of placing the initial ads which put me into profit.
During the rest of the test period I placed some new ads every few days to see if the trend continued. While I did not make a sale every single day of the test period I did produce enough sales to know how profitable IPC would be when I decided to start the paid advertising campaings.
All in all The HBB Advisor gives IPC 4.5 out of 5 Stars and believes that this program would make a great addition to anyones portfolio.
