IZigg is Selling you a Dream Alright. Don't!
To begin my business with iZigg I invested $2600. and have spent surely hundreds of hours training people in my organization (while Izigg has NO paying training program available for agents and NO help unless you're recruiting - and SADLY that only entails 3 way sales call or my prospect showing up at a meeting where the 'top earner' tells them 'you can text my name to 90210 and I'm available to help you any time, we're going into business together and we're a team'). Currently my organization has sold nearly $100,000. and all I've earned is $1600. I continue to listen to calls where, inevitably, I hear 'top earners' like Dr Scott Elliot, Michael Rutherford, etc.. claim 'our company pays back .70 cents out of every dollar to agents!!' On top of those claims, recently there's been a HUGE push to sell *agents only* a Facebook product called mSocial ($149. set-up fee) that cost $39.95 A MONTH (all the while they say it is commissionable - for exactly whom I wonder?) iZigg's official basis for this necessity for us of course is that it will help small businesses by allowing them to monetize their social media (months after 'some' agents originally paid for this I doubt it has even made Izigg enough to cover cost of development - and to date 'zero' small businesses are using it because it still isn't available to small businesses). Now I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but it seems to me we have a money racket going here, where a huge majority of sales come from agency and autoship purchases instead of real retail product sales in the marketplace. The technology is out-of-site and the branding is drop dead sexy, people, that said, iZigg is getting filthy rich based on the sales of your agency and autoship. In February 2011 Brian Underwood and Dave Liniado told us what the ratio between agency purchases and retail was. They said retail sales accounted for 60% of all money made. Now, knowing what I've experienced, I wonder if they were including agent autoships or just flat out lying.... and how much worse it's gotten. Am I just another gullible and disgruntled man playing victim to just another MLM or do I justifiably have cause in raising a flag? Either way, if you're familiar with the FTC's case against Burn Lounge and you've read the recent Federal Court's ruling in that case...... you have to admit the similarities are scary for the average American looking to earn extra income.
False promise about money-making opportunity
Hi--- I'm writing to report fraud by the name of a company named Izigg. They are a MLM company that markets text message marketing. A few months ago I went to a meeting and was told, "Every business that sees this signs up for it." I was also told, "Any time you need help from us, call us and we're here for you." Complete lies. I showed this to at least 100 businesses.Â Not a single one joined.Â And I've been in sales over 16 years, mostly selling advertising, so I'm not an ***.Â Nothing. And, I contacted my up-line MANY times and they NEVER contacted me back. Never. At least 3 different guys. Didn't get ONE return phone call or email. And yet, I went to meeting after meeting after meeting and every time, they said, "If you need our help, we're ALWAYS there for you.." Complete and total lie. They also repeated the lie "Every business we show this to signs up." Since there is no phone number for the corporate office that I know of, I emailed the CEO asking for help. His secretary had some guy call me that sounded like he couldn't care less. When I asked him for help, he refused. Also, I told the guy that signed me up, "I have ZERO warm market and I do everything by phone and that I didn't even OWN a cell phone or car."Â He said it was no problem.Â And yet, after I signed up and went to meetings, all I heard was, "This only really works if you have a warm market and/or go out and call on businesses personally.Â Doesn't work cold-calling on the phone. The EXACT OPPOSITE of what I was told before they got my money from me. I asked for a refund and they ignored me. They stole $450 from me and I want to stop them from stealing from others. Do not believe their blatant lies.
