Eric’s Success Plan is an online earning program from Eric Webster, who claims that he can give anyone the ability to earn $500-$5000 a month with his system, and he will never ask you to pay a dime.
Webster says that this website will give members the ability to begin earning money online, along with the help of a personal business coach. Once you are comfortable earning money from this website, you’ll be given another chance to earn even more money.
In order to get started, you need is to pay a $9.95 fee. Webster maintains that you still aren’t paying him a dime, since this fee is for Shipping & Handling.
Understanding the Claims
There are many claims made on the Eric’s Success Plan website. First, is that you won’t pay Eric Webster a dime – this claim is made repeatedly. And while that’s technically true, it doesn’t mean the program is free.
Instead, you’ll be redirected to The Internet Starter Pack website and this is the company to whom you’ll be paying your money. This includes the $9.95 fee for shipping, as well as another $39.95 if you hold on to the training DVDs for longer than 14 days.
Webster also says that the company he is sending you too is “a member” of the Better Business Bureau, which is a “clear sign” the company is reputable and legitimate. This claim clearly ignores the controversy surrounding the BBB and their ratings system. In fact, all that is required to be “a member” of the BBB is a membership fee.
The truth is that ultimately Eric’s Success Plan will lead you to an affiliate marketing training program, most likely providing you with a website just like his where you’ll be selling more memberships to The Internet Starter Pack.
It’s not fair to make a blanket statement saying that these programs can’t or don’t work, but to say that you won’t “pay a dime” and that you’re somehow guaranteed to make $500-$5000 a month is not only unfair, there’s a good chance it’s deceptive.
People who are interested in earning money with an affiliate marketing program would be better off researching the opportunity online from trustworthy, free resources that have nothing to sell, in order to determine whether or not this business is something they are interested in doing themselves, and not because of a sales pitch.
