Review of Micro Model Business System by Mike Filsaime

by 76 comments
Mike Filsaime launched his Micro Model Business System this week geared towards the newbie market.

There have been similar programs from several other internet marketers over the last two years and they all do a great job making life easier for you. However; they all have the same weakness. If 1000 people sign up for this offer, all of a sudden there will be a 1000 marketers like you trying to market the same products. Talk about sibling rivalry.

Besides, the key to all this is traffic. You can have the best product in the world but without traffic, it means nothing.

The Micro Model Business System does teach you the basics of traffic but you may have to take additional courses to learn and generate traffic. For a limited time, they are providing a traffic course for free and that's a relief because without traffic, everything else is meaningless. Learning how to generate traffic is not brain surgery but requires time and patience.

    I find the whole system well put together actually. The one thing I don't like about the system is its emphasis on the make money niche or related niches such as Facebook marketing, List management, back linking and so on. Hopefully the added niches to come will be of a more general nature: health, education and so on.

    Its true however, These same sites will be built my all members. Could be 100 members , could be 10,000. However, You shouldn't expect the traffic to be coming from google but more along the lines of forum commenting, article and video marketing, yahoo answers and so on. of course all this can be automated. The products/websites are all listed in paydotcom it seems, so its possible to have affiliates promoting your product, but I wouldn't count on it.

    I absolutely agree with you on all points. I find it hard to believe how these internet marketers continueously MASK over the TRUTH with all these long drawn out sales videos, which NEVER focus or even mention the REAL requirements which are needed to make money online.

    Hmmm...talk about saturation... is it really true it does not exist?

    Try getting 100 hotdog sellers at a local fun fair carnival. Who'll get the business? The traffic is there already. But too many hotdogs sellers selling hotdogs. Maybe some will want to sell ice cream or pop corn.

    It's about demand and supply. Too much supply with too little demand gives saturation.

    With so many affiliates promoting the same product...well. The answer is simple. Because there's only one product owner. Using this micro business model is not affiliate marketing. The people want to be product sellers. How can the people be given the same product and then asked to sell on their site? Even the site is the same. There's no uniqueness, no unique selling point. All the same. Then how different it is from affiliate marketing?

    I don't like the point on having the affiliate network ready - paydotcom. Sure it is already an affiliate network. But to say that there's a ready supply of affiliates wanting to sell for you is sort of short changing the people who buy into this system. It's like saying get everyone in the world to give you $1...just $1 and you will be a multi-millionaire...maybe billionaire.

    The truth is there are thousands of products on the network. The challenge is getting people to want to sell for you. It's getting them to land into your affiliate page to sign up as your affiliate. And don't forget there are some other 'owners' selling the same product looking for affiliates. So the truth is you still have to find your own affiliates.

    So I wonder...even the product is done for you. Can the owner modify the contents of the product to make it more unique?? If not everything is done for you. Then there'll be duplication. So if all members follow all tutorial and assumiing they can get to page 1 of google, how many of the same product sellers can rank on page 1?? Will google allow it??

    Hmmm...this topic on saturation is really debatable.

    Before I comment, let me be 100% clear that I work for Mike Filsaime - and I also helped design and put together MMBS (as well as Profit Platform). My comments will be centered on answering specific issues - not try to tell anyone how awesome it is

    So...

    Gary made a great post on saturation and I agree with him totally. It IS about getting traffic.

    Several years ago I made a Popup Generator software, even though there were already countless others on the market. I did it because I knew I had something many of the others did not - traffic to sell it. And it did well, even with all the "saturation". You have to get beyond that thinking... whether using MMBS or being an affiliate for someone else.

    MMBS includes a library of different traffic training methods. Some free, others not. But it's there to learn from. And as stated here - it does take patience.

    Mike's 14 day trial is designed for you to play with the system, to see how easy it is to get some sites up and running - not for you to drive traffic to. You'd need more than 14 (or even 30) days if you are new to traffic generation... but with time and diligence, you can do it.

    So I'm a little confused?

    If we sign up, do we only get one (1) site that we choose from 25 options?

    or

    Do we get 25 self hosted sites at the same time once we sign up?

    Thanks for clarification

    I had a look recently and at least some of the products turn out to be available elsewhere, with resale rights. Plus they are all over the web and the quality of the ones that I saw is not that good. A pity, because the basic concept is an attractive one.

    So I cancelled in favour of building my own sites with high-quality and more exclusive packages, on a hosting service that I have already paid for.

    Too bad this thread turned into a pi$$ing match between a few warriors.


    This seems to be more common all the time.

    The OP makes a comment askes a question etc.

    One warrior makes a comment and others begin to debate/contest/express opinions and the original intent of the thread is lost in the fray.


    Unfortunate but true.


    Jim R

    P.S. I do realize my post is not related to the OP comment either.

    Oh Gary...you seem to have missed the point again. LOL...VL(very loud)

    I asked about whether the sales page and the product can be edited to make it unique. You didn't answer that. Only Adam X who bought the product mentioned that. Thanks Adam!!!
    Quote by Gary..."
    Every affiliate marketer is competing with tens of thousands of other affiliates... why aren't they crying saturation?

    Everyone promoting anything on Amazon should be crying saturation.

    They're not...

    And this relates DIRECTLY to Mike's system as the main sticking point for a number of warriors was saturation. "

    Well Gary...I also said Mike Filsaime's product is not about affiliate marketing, because it's about being the product owner. So you can't use affiliate marketing as an example.

    The reason why you can't use it as an example is very simple. Because people know that the product belongs to someone else. The affiliate has their own 'sales page' aka the product review page. The affiliate then directs the traffic to the owners page. Which is alright because people know that they are being directed to the owner's page. The owner's page is unique because it is probably the only copy of it.

    Even for Amazon...nobody cry saturation because the affiliates can make their own review page.

    I keep emphasizing...it's not about saturation on the niches. Niches are fine. The concern I've been raising is whether the sales page and product can be edited to make it unique. You missed the point and didn't answer it. Only Adam X answered it.

    Mike Filsiame's product is about owning the product and sales page. If every owner of the product has the same product and sales page, then it's a real concern. From what I understand from Mike's video, the sales page and product are created automatically. In this case, there will be some duplication concern. Thankfully Adam answered my question.

    I guess because Gary is an affiliate of Mike's product, therefore can't really answer my question without physically testing/trying it. Sigh.....

    I am looking at this "system" are there any extras to pay? Can you host yourself on your own hosting? Are the products new or old?

    Boy, am I sick of wasting my time on reading all the bravado here of who's opinion is right. I don't care about the saturation theory. What I care about is, can I as a non-techy, lousy marketer on my own, make money w/Mike's product?

    When Alex says "Now, I did have a concern regarding the products themselves, not so much the competition as my marketing methods are unique to me. Regarding the actual product you are selling, some of them are not so good (actually, they are pretty bad) One thing I know a lot about is PLR, and some of the products are in fact PLR of which I already have, but would use them as free give-aways , not something I would charge $30-$40 dollars for.

    However,...you can edit the sales pages , and upload your own products. For me this is great, as this was my intention from the start...

    In addition you can add a blog to each site (many ways to configure all this). The blogs can provide additional information such as your articles with affiliate links and so on...." I am concerned.

    When Alex says that he can make money because his marketing is unique to him, that some of the products are not so good or pretty bad, that you can edit pages and upload your own products, that puts me at a great disadvantage since, as I've said, I don't have a unique marketing system, I'm not a copywriter and don't have my own products to upload. That was my whole attraction to Mike's product--that all of this would be good quality material and I wouldn't have to figure everything out for myself.

    I did purchase the product late last night, unfortunately BEFORE I looked on the WF, so I have 14 days to test it. I'm going to go there now and do what I can do. I'll let you know how it works.

    Blessings,

    Candy

    Gary...thanks for your reply in post number 40. It's much easier to digest what you have explained. It is also more constructive. In your other replies and post, it seems to be going round in circles.

    Forums are for people to raise discussion. Naturally some will ask seemingly stupid question because many come from different backgrounds and experiences. Or views that may differ from your views.

    With your level of experience, it's easy for you to see things in another perspective. Not so for not yet successful/experienced IMers.

    I hope you take no offense in our exchanges in this thread. Should our paths cross again in future in this forum, I hope it will not happen again. Thanks.

    P.S. Please refrain from calling others silly or moron. It'll help a lot.

    Adam makes a good point. I doubt all newbies will be doing all 25 sites at once. If they DO they surely ont be able to give them the full attention and marketing they need. If you ask me, the fact that there are 25 sites instead of just 2 or 10 even is awesome as it gives people a choice as to which ones to go after. I think this is a great Product and concept FOR those who are going to do more than just build the sites but actually take action

    If 5% of the buyers take action, they're surely NOT going to do so with 25 sites. The 25 sites dilutes this greatly. I do not see saturation being a problem here

    Sorry for any typos, iPad post

    I was pleased to see Mike Ambrosio talking about this new system, but referring to the old system (Profit Platform) that Mike F WAS selling. I hope that is not still being marketed as it was sorely tired copy and pretty much out of date material. However, I am aware that Prof Plat continued for at least a year or two after complaints about the material so hearing what Adam had to say about quality (some good some not) I'm steering clear because there is still a smack of the "old" about this.
    On the face of it, Newbies will gain some practical experience from a system like this - and as they all have to choose their own domain names there will be variations, even among the anticipated small percentage that get sites up and competing for traffic.

    I'm really sorry I didn't post my experience w/Mike's system but since it took 5 or 6 days for customer service to get back to me, I decided to cancel based on the poor customer service.
