Hi,

Well, I am glad some of you are really happy with your EPI membership..

To give you another side of it.. here is mine.. and is only my opinion..


I honestly don't think its worth $1295.00 for what it is.


Now don't get me wrong. I am sure many people really think it has great value. However, I am one that has a rows of books and audio programs in my home, and have been to a few great seminars. So maybe I just don't appreciate the product as much as others do.


The marketing system ,is just get people to watch the movie and then bring them to a call.. No different.. so people are stuff with not knowing how to actually market the movie. So they still have to learn that.

This is just my opinion.

Hello,

The bottom line is doing your due diligence on any opportunity is encouraged and wise so that you can make an informed business
decision for yourself whether or not it's a good fit for you. You can choose to join or not to join. That's where it's at for each of us. I for one have looked at many opportunities, done my due diligence and joined a company whose products are awesome and system is cutting edge with an extremely lucrative compensation plan. Have you found your opportunity yet? If not, I highly recommend you check this out. If you're serious, this is the business you want.

Success to you!

Although I'm not involved with EPI (and made a conscious decision not to be), I think this conversation is worth mentioning a simple point about capitalism:

The price of a product is not based on its cost. It's based on its value.

Several comments have been made that seem to imply that "if the marketer wasn't making $1,000 then the product would only cost $295." That's not necessarily true. The price would be whatever the market will pay.

And chances are good that everyone here knows this. But, it seems to get forgotten when a company is candid about how much of the purchase price is kept by the marketer. The truth is that it's not really any of our business. In terms of asking what the product is worth, the marketer's profit doesn't matter. At all.

I'll give you an example: my wife and I bought a home pregnancy test a few months ago. (Unfortunately, it turned out negative. :) ) We spent $15 for the test, came home and, when I opened it, I started laughing, "I'm in the wrong business".

Ever seen a home pregnancy test? It's just a piece of plastic with a tiny slip of litmus-like paper in it. That's it. Probably about $.50 worth of materials and labor.

Now, you ladies on here may have bought one in the past, too. And, like me, you couldn't care less that the markup on that product was close to 3,000%. You didn't care what someone else was making for selling it to you.

Why? Because what you were REALLY buying was an answer. I was more than happy to pay $15 for something that would answer a very emotional question for me and my wife. Heck, if they'd had one, I'd probably bought a $25 model just because it was available.

And that's the point: in free enterprise and capitalism, the price isn't based on cost. It's based on value to the end consumer.

I wouldn't pay $1,295 for what EPI is selling. But, others do. Do they pay it because they're interested in making money? Maybe. Probably. But, for the purposes of this post, I'm simply pointing out that the wholesale price of $295 has absolutely NOTHING to do with the selling price.

Just my perspective,

Tony Rush

Tony makes a great point with his value argument; regardless of his involvement in any kind of business.

The key to value is perception, and you must perceive that Emerald Passport is worth $1300.

I know that through the negotiation module a friend of mine was able to save $1500 on his new car. Perhaps that would justify the cost of the information.

In addition, the depth and content of the new Real Estate course is easily worth an agent's commission.

Again, though, you must view and understand the content to perceive the value.

Colin,

I'm not sure which group that your signed up with, but judging by your reference to a 98% automated business, I do not believe it was with the Painless Profits Team.

Unlike many of other teams, despite their success, that are affliated with EPI, we do not tell someone that a movie will make them thousands and all they have to do is sit on the couch and open the checks.

Painless Profits gives you the training and mentorship that you will need to truly succeed, without the fluff. In addition, we also detail the true costs of business ownership.

EPI is the information and product infrastructure, but your team and your desire to succeed are ultimately the key to determining the actual value EPI provides.

In my opinion, this completely upside down. The value of the product should be firmly rooted to one question: what will it do for the customer?

If the answer to that question depends on "what team" they join, then EPI has dropped the ball on their product. The value of the product and company shouldn't matter who your enroller is.

Just my nickel,

Tony,

I guess I can understand what your saying, based on what I wrote.

I didn't communicate my thought effectively.

My thought is that EPI the product is the bricks and mortar mix. To exploit the information, to effectively mix the mortar and set the bricks to build an magnificant building, you need the right team. Mentorship will help you better understand the material, answer any questions and allow you to put it to the best use.

I have gotten information, including Robert Kiyosaki, that is great. However, I have not had the mentorship to show me how to apply it. Therefore, I think EPI has a certain inherent value, but the right team is a force multiplier.

Being teachable, trainable and coachable and plugging into a system, a recipe for success is essential for success. That's what we have in place. If you're willing to follow a system that has been proven and are willing to be mentored, then you're willing to succeed.

All the best,
Danyelle

Howdy,

I guess I wanted to give an update to my thoughts on EPI, as they have changed now. Yes before I was not too impressed with all the product and even my director, or how the marketing system was marketed to me.

Well over 1.5 years later...

EPI now has included more products.. Products that have huge value too.
1. The Real estate course in there is great.
2. The new Forex training course in there is great too. I been going through those videos and learning a lot about tradining the Forex. Something I had interest in learning about for a little while now.
3. they are adding more product soon they say too.

The marketing system:
Well this has new light now for me as You can actually purchace results now. I mean you can purchace movie leads that are people optining into profit masters in real time. So that system does find people for you now and sorts them out to give you only ones interested in Profit masters. They even replace bad numbers for you. so thats kewl now.

I also have new director as my old one was removed from EPI.

So over all I am now interested in getting qualifed with EPI. Also because I wanted a new Direct sales program. For that last year until this winter I was doing MSU and had a change of heart with that after the system was changed and other stuff. I am doing residual and my MIM direct sales program is actually just a bonus now when people join my Amigo team.

So that leaves me with needing a direct sales program. of all the ones out there I thought EPI would be the best to get in gear with now. Like I said I feel the product is much more worth the value now.

So I decided to fire it up and work the movie leads.

I think anyone out there can make money with any of these businesses. The reason people whine and complain is that they do not treat it like a serious business. None of the businesses are overnight sensations. So many people out there want something for nothing. Or want to get rich quick. That is why PAS is growing right now, but it will quickly become over saturated. You need to hone your skills, practice, learn your trade. There is no get rich quick program out there! You need to find a company and product that you feel comfortable marketing. You need to see value in it. Value in the system, compensation plan and product. Sure there are many gifting programs and pyramids out there that you can make money with if that is what you are looking for.

I was a Summit Advisor with LLI, I was with Coastal, and a couple of other programs. I have been marketing Emerald Passport for almost a year and a half now. I believe that the product is vastly superior to anything else in the marketplace. I believe the system is automated enough to give the common person a shot if he takes this business seriously. Marketing is the key with all of these companies. Those that know how to market earn, those who don't and don't take the time to learn will fail. Treat this like a 6 figure a year business and it can work for you. Some of you work 50 hours a week for 50k a year. If you worked on yourself just a quarter of that time you would be shocked at what you can accomplish!

EPI is just the best in the industry. The only company that allows the customer to look at the product first. The only company who adds value to the product. EPI has many top people who are still here from the beginning. It is growing at a decent pace. It is surely not saturated like Liberty League and PAS are. When you add up these components I firmly believe that EPI is here for the long haul and is something that everyone should seriously consider if they are serious and ready for a long term commitment to a business. If you are looking for hype and get rich quick and don't want to do any work or hone your skills then you should look elsewhere. You should want to be a leader to succeed. I make sure I give leaders all the tools they need to be successful, whether it is personal prospecting time, leads, anything I can do to help them get qualified fast. If you have questions feel free to contact me. Prosperity for everyone!

Things are rocking and rolling in Emerald Passport land. If you haven't noticed, the new simple system is really rocketing results. If you are looking for an oppty to market a product that has an actual value with a simple system anyone can utilize, and a compensation plan second to none, than you need to go through our simple system. I have been here two years for a reason, because Emerald Passport is constantly changing and striving to help its associates. Sure people come and go but I firmly believe EPI has the best product in the market place. No one says anything bad about it. You deserve to look at this more in depth. Go to 6figureincomeschool.com

Go through the steps you will put your prospects through. If you see value in the products, plan and compensation plan then great. Give me a call and I can answer your questions and have you up and running as soon as possible. The FALL season is by far the best time to get your business up and running. Everyone is looking for what we have and to earn more income. I have been around a lot of businesses in the marketplace but have always come back to EPI being the best.

Ask me about the Premier fast track to qualification that will have profits in your pockets a lot sooner. You come in as Premier and you basically get Phase 1 free, plus you only have to make one qualifying sale opposed to two. If you understand ROI and the cost of opening up a business or a franchise in America these days then you will appreciate the ROI that EPI can offer. I can teach you how to create free high quality leads of serious business people who are looking for lucrative opportunities. Buying cheap leads of people that are broke and unemployed is NOT the way. Let me mentor you to success!

Spring is here and business is blooming and booming with Emerald Passport. After an amazing Marketing Boot Camp up in Toronto people are energized and sales are coming in fast and furious. With all the garbage in the marketplace it is amazing to be locking arms with Emerald Passport. Very shortly the new module called the Power of Success for Kids will be coming out. ALL PARENTS should have this course. It will teach you and your child learning strategies not taught in schools. They will be more effective students and they will learn many things such as how to handle peer pressure, how to ace tests, how to become more confident, how to focus and study more efficiently. The list goes on and on. Remember WE ARE THE ONLY company in the marketplace that gives prospective customers a product guest pass because we want them to see the value in our product before they decide to buy it. We are the ONLY company that continues to add value to our courses. We are a steady rock solid company that has been around for 18 years that is PRODUCT BASED. Can you say that about your opportunity?

The money being made here is amazing. The support and training calls are outstanding. Over 28 per week. Phase 1 customers become Phase 2 customers with no extra work on our parts. How would you like that $1000 commission to turn into a $4500 commission with no extra work. The bottom line is this. We are the Direct Sales industry LEADER in the Web-education field. If you align yourself with a leader you will get MASSIVE RESULTS. Contact me now and ask for a product guest pass. Whether you join the business or not I guarantee that you will WANT AND NEED the product.

For those that are big thinkers and want to take advantage of being a Premier customer and being on the fast tract to six figures there are many advantages. Not only do you get a monetary discount, not only do you get a qualification discount (this can save you tens of thousands of dollars), you will also get a free ad placement in our next CO-OP. Ask me for a guest pass or more information.

I know plenty of people in EPI that are having success. It is all about creating organic leads, leads that call you or go to your website. Buying leads is not the way to go. You need to be able to be a master marketer to make big money with this business. Good Luck.
