I inadvertently bumped into the blog at Gator-Byte.com and what I found there was not too appetizing to say the least.
I couldn’t let this pass without posting to the blog…
Some of these posts make me sick! I mean it!
Booulaaagh! Now I’ve got to clean up the mess…
How Tellman Knudson’s The Listbuilding Club relates to this post,
“The last time an internet opportunity reeked this bad was when the RFS was floating heavily around the internet. The famous ‘beach bum’ pulling in millions an hour by suckering poor individuals into coughing up a $50 “tire kicker weeder outer fee” and then being told that in order to make money they had to pony up another $2995.”
…is a sheer mystery to me! I absolutely see no correlation between this and LBC!
The person who wrote this haggled over one dollar! Pretty damned good deal for the price and it might as well be as if it were free!
Was surprised that he had to whip out his credit card! I don’t believe that dollar is any sort of profit!
Puts the information given in the LBC lessons down because that’s supposed to make everybody who comes into it rich…but forgets the fact that it’s not the information at fault – its the members who have varying degrees of financial prowess, work ethics, determination, ambition, etc. Some will and some won’t – it’s reality!
Wants to do little work and make a lot of money anyway. Forgets that Tellman had to work very hard to get to a condition like this – and is usually the case with any other wealthy person at first! That’s the trouble with the Internet – Unscrupulous marketers prey on this human flaw and is why so many get-rich-quick schemes abound. Really give programs like this a bad name.
I hardly think Tellman’s programs fall in this category! Go to college and get a good education so you can land a great career – some do and some don’t…whose fault is that?
Yes, some of the first few videos are pretty basic! Get a domain name from GoDaddy and hosting from HostGator. Yes, that’s basic but it sounds like this writer did not bother to go into the “Lessons” menu clearly seen in the tabline at the top of the website. It abounds with some pretty challenging information well done in a clear fashion by Brian Edmunson.
It also sounds like the writer already had a negative outlook on this program before he even looked into it.
Gaouleee! I won’t even go into the resulting posts left by other people who were attracted like a magnet to such misinformation.
I will say to those who posted in defense of Knudson, “My hat off to you!”
I went for the one-dollar LBC deal and this thing about “hidden forced continuity programs…”
Not so with this program! You will find that if you pay closer attention to programs like this you won’t get burned like you think you have…
I remember when my mother subscribed to the Columubia House Records & Tape Club. In the 1970s when 8-track cartridges were king she went ahead and got her initial stack of country and western tapes. Wow! What a deal!
But then came the time when she had to fill out that card denying the “house selection” so she wouldn’t get it that month. However sometimes she totally forgot about the card and lo and behind!
…here comes that tape with the country and western band she didn’t like – or that she didn’t have the funds to pay for it that month. Sad to say, I used to get a kick out of her getting that tape and cussing over it!
“Goddamit!” I would hear her day as she cussed at it when she came home from work and found it in the mail.
She knew the implications. It was all right there in writing when she signed up for the deal.
It’s the same thing with Tellman Knudson’s The ListBuilding Club. This is for you people who are complaining about the subscription that comes with the one-dollar deal!
It’s even better than the Columbia House Record and Tape Club! Whose fault is it if YOU don’t read the sales page? Why, you could have just used the thirty days and canceled! Couldn’t do that with Columbia House in the 1970s or now for that matter until you satisfy your agreement of buying x amount of units at regular club prices.
I had no problem knowing these concessions! It’s right there in black and white. People just want stuff for next to nothing! Golly! I see nothing wrong with this program! It did me a world of good helping me put stuff on my blog and I have indispensable knowledge now because of that program. Yes, I did stay in it for a few months until I felt I had enough of it down to proceed without it. Had I the funds I would probably continue with it.
The video and audio banks are getting progressively larger and I don’t think the addition of a single lesson per month (which includes anywhere from four to eight videos and a couple teleseminar recordings) is worth paying the $67 but for the first few months digesting all the materials, in my opinion, it’s well worth it.
I had no problem canceling my subscription. I did it the way they wanted it done and it was a done deal. I can’t get into the Member’s Area now but they didn’t charge me either.
For you complainers out there…
OVERCOME EVERYTHING EVEN TOLD ME THAT IF AND WHEN I COME BACK TO THE CLUB THEY’D GIVE ME TWO MONTHS FREE!!! How’s THAT for a deal? No, if you are in the club now, don’t be canceling just so you can have them bestow something like this to you. Too many people do it, well you know what would happen.
With several, if not many thousands of people subscribed in the various programs they can’t possibly attend to each and everybody personally!
That’s common sense.
It’s not Overcome Everything’s fault if some of you could not delay gratification long enough to READ the sales page or where ever the concessions of joining this club was written! Remember this and you will go farther…
Some people make it happen…
Some people let it happen…
Others say, “WHAT HAPPENED?”
The entitlement mentality has surely grown like cancer!
Learn how to be accountable for your actions and DON’T blame Tellman Knudson because all the sudden you are being charged $67 and you’re going, “WHAT????”
It’s not very often anything like this comes without a price and for goodness sake, you get such value for a buck for a month! What more do you want?
Yes, I hate the email I get from Overcome Everything. It’s pretty hypish like you find with some of these new millionaires. They’re a tad too slap-happy, but wouldn’t you be if you suddenly began bringing in a fortune? You can always unsubscribe from the list or do like I do – delete them.
I’ve been subscribed to this company when it was known as “the ListCrusade.” The guy was living in a crowded apartment with other people sharing it and dogs and cats, a crappy cobbled-up computer and a crappy car.
I’d love to be in his place right now – not having to answer to a company that I work for and be controlled by it even in my “spare” time – if there’s such a thing spare time in the life of a wage slave. I’m sure if I were to break out of this crummy lifestyle I’d have people badmouthing me because I have freedom that they only dream of.
If this company did anything unethical I’d be right in there with you all. I read it before I entered the deal.
If you read it you’d know better. If you did read it and knew there was a charge and then shot off your post like some of those above then you are the unethical one and very mean too!
They did nothing wrong.
Now I’ve finished with my rant hopefully one of two of you will reconsider what you said. Slam me and flame me all you want if this angers you but if you do it then it is a further reflection on you.
I will end this with one more statement from the writer above,
“When all is said and done, it’s up to each person to decide if they want to partake in a system like this; after all it is possible that I’m wrong in my assumptions about Mr. Knudsons [sic] integrity. Check out the information, form your own opinions and feel free to discuss it here in the comments section. I look forward to reading what you have to say.”
I wonder how long my post will stay up on this blog if it even makes it to where it is visible to the public.
If it does then I do have to take my hat off to the owner of this blog or whoever wrote the pilot post because he’s exercising good sportsmanship.
Thus I posted in the blog at Gator-Byte.
