SMS Marketing/Auto Recruiting Platform

by 56 comments
Does anyone know of a cheaper version of Auto Recruiting Platform? They appear to have a great system, but the $247 dollars a month plus $99 set-up fee sounds a little steep to me... I've Googled the idea without much success.

Thanks in advance...

    What the heck does ARP do exactly? They seem to never really tell you what it is, how it works and what it does in all their sales stuff.

      In short Rob... ARP is a complete business in a box. It's a system built for entrepreneurs who may not be good at certain things.

      Such as most people don't know how to get traffic to their "offers" (if they have an offer). ARP provides you access to high quality, targeted traffic.

      Most people don't know how to convert traffic into leads. ARP is the technology that will capture your traffic and convert them into SMS phone verified leads. (much higher quality than email... think about how many emails you get a day and delete? Email marketing is obsolete)

      And last ARP provides custom funnels that people can plug their own business into. Or piggyback on one of 16 funnels that will be releases promoting various business opportunities. So if you see something out there that is huge right now, and lots of people are joining... that actually is reputable and has quality leadership, ARP will have a funnel set up for that offer.

      So essentially ARP is removing all the hurdles new people face when getting into building an online business.

      Business online is all about being able to get enough eyeballs on your offers. This is a simple way of doing it. And with the ability to remarket to your list and ensure they get your message.

      Traffic, Lead Capture technology, and conversion funnels.

      Business in a box. It's a solution to purchasing all these WSO's that don't really teach anything meaningful.

      Yes they do, you just have to optin and everything is explained. I did and the staged presentations provided me with all I needed to know in easily assimilated batches.

      It's pretty simple really, the serious optin, the just curious don't (exactly as it should be)

    There is nothing in the market place that is like ARP.

    The problem you're really having is you can't see yourself succeeding. So it's not the system that's going to be the issue. Or the prices. It's going to be your mindset.

    If you are looking at ARP, then you'd see they have the traffic, and the funnel already that converts sales. Ding Ding Ding... that's how you make money on the internet.

    Sometimes in business you gotta be willing to jump on things when it's right. And stop making decisions based solely on price. That's just not a smart business move and will end up costing you a lot of money in the long run.

      Thank you for your deep psychological insights about my mindset, Dr. Freud, or is is Dr. Fraud? You don't know me, first of all. Secondly, I'm somewhat wary because there have been so many "systems" in the past that are not what they claim to be, to put it mildly. I'm not saying ARP is a scam, I'm just saying only a fool will rush in on the next "shiny new thing" without a few more facts. Saying that "there's nothing in the market place like ARP" is the same line every snake-oil salesman has used long before there even was an Internet. Once again, I'm not saying ARP is not on the up-and-up; I'm just a little cautious about what program I set my sights on.

      And BTW, I can see myself succeeding, but I certainty can't see myself succeeding by following another know-it-all like yourself. Despite your signature, you come across just like a wannabe-guru yourself. And you can ding-ding-ding and dong-dong-dong on that, far as I care...

    There is NOTHING else like Auto Recruiting Platform. I assure you of that. It isn't just a texting service, there are services behind the scenes that would make your hair turn white! Basically, you can come from nothing and know nothing and become a success. It's the ultimate in hand holding your way to success. If you are involved in another network marketing company, you can plug it into an ARP funnel and even have sales closers do the hard work for you! I can tell you I've never seen anything like this and I know this is the last thing I will ever do. When you join, you will laugh at $249 per month within the week! The value far surpasses what is charged here to be a reseller, a founder. I don't think people realize how big this is.
    I hope this helps.

      Thanks for your response, carlamae. It's good to hear of someone who's have success with the program. I will have to take a second look at ARP...

    I'm starting to get it finally.

    Now for cost. Here is what I am understanding so far.

    I would have to pay $247 a month membership dues.

    Plus I would have to pay another $100 for every 20 to 25 leads I get.

    Correct me if I am wrong on this.

    Next question. What niches are the leads available in?

      Yes, $247 a month.

      Yes, $100 per share in the co op. Leads are not guaranteed; 25 - 30 is just an estimate. How many of those will eventually become paying members? Some, or maybe none. It depends.

      You can promote any niche with ARP, but promoting the program itself appears to be one of the main strategies many members are using.

      All in all, ARP sounds like a pretty decent program, and I'm planning to join as soon as I get my Adsense money...
  • Profile picture of the author carlamae
    You are on the right track. The $100 traffic packs are optional, you are welcome to drive traffic however you like, but the traffic packs are supreme quality. What we are selling right now are Reseller Licenses, but you will have your own storefront full of premium products and so much more to come as well.
    Also remember that the commission is split, so I sell to you and get $100 commission, you sell to Bob and I get $100 of Bob's and so do you! No mlm, just split commission. I'm so excited it's keeping me awake at night. You should get on some of the calls.
  • Profile picture of the author Rob Whisonant
    Hmmm... So basically everyone (most) is currently paying $247 a month for the right to get others to pay $247 a month?

    Are there any products being sold that don't require the buyer to pay the $247 a month? Or is the only product the $247 a month thing?

    Back to not getting it again.

    They charge you to become a member Sid. They are not rebilling you monthly right now until phase 2 is released because thats when the traffic is going to be released. They are making sure there is no bugs in the system and it is running 100% before that happens and it's only days away.

    What your getting is a complete SMS software system to build your list totally automated for you,15 of the top network marketing opportunities to start and funnels for that plus a custom funnel that you can add any business you want so you can build your list the way you see in the ARP funnel everyone is going through. Plus alot more. The $99 activation fee is wavied also until phase 2 is released. For this kind of software it would cost you thousands, it's high class and awesome.

    Think it like GETRESPONSE/AWEBER... what do you get with those? you get the software to maintain your leads right?

    ARP is EXACTLY that... it capture and maintain your cellphone leads..

    The difference is that ARP provide DONE FOR YOU Funnel, which is right now for BETA 1, only have 1 which is PERFECT for home business/MMO/IM niche.

    I already make $1400/mo in just 3-4 weeks promoting using cheap advertising resources and free highly effective strategy .. I helped my direct referrals getting their sales by giving them my EXACT advertising resources that have been tested to bring quality leads and sales.. so they can save their money and time testing traffic and this weekend one of my direct referral get another sale the best part is that the guy just use my tactics and he doesn't have a list at all... so he is building his first list using ARP.. the phone list!

    I love helping people making money with this system!

      Hello Heri,

      Can you share some of your advertising resources for promoting ARP? I cannot sign up under you because I have already signed up under someone else. Can you PM me? I would like to cover the costs of the program as soon as possible...

    What other value will you get for the $247 a month besides the SMS system?

    I already have an SMS autoresponder system and it costs me very little each month.

    So if this is the only thing they CURRENTLY offer, I just don't see the value of paying $247 a month for something you can get for a lot lot less.

      Rob,

      You are actually getting your own software store. There are far more products than just the sms service and the commissions will be coming from every direction, not to mention you can match your leads to the right opportunities based on the paid app they fill out at the beginning.
      There are beta tester already earning 5 figures, so nobody is complaining about the fee that is actually worth ten times the amount.

    I just want to address the traffic for a moment...the traffic packs you buy from ARP are not like any other traffic you've ever bought. They want you to succeed, not waste your money. ARP is buying traffic from the same source JP Morgan spends millions a month on. There are huge media companies involved, this is no small time. Regular marketers would never be able to get into this league by themselves. I will never buy traffic from anywhere ever again! Plus, you get 20 - 25 leads that have already opted into the ARP system....I do believe that says it all.

      Won't they run out of traffic packs though if everyone is getting into this?

    I am not sure what ARP is doing with SMS, but there may be a new glitch with using SMS, because as of this past Wednesday all SMS advertising has to go only to people who have given written permission to send them SMS messages.

    There is now a $1,500 fine per text!

    I just posed a thread here:

      ARP is not spam. When you opt in and fill out the questionnaire, that could very well be the same as giving written permission. I don't remember if I specifically allowed them to send me SMS messages or not. But I don't think they send out any SMS to anyone who has not opted in or submitted their application...
  • Profile picture of the author seoevangelist
    Sounds like ARP should have some fine print or whatever to tell people that when they put in their cell number to get the 4 digit activation code that they are also agreeing to receive text messages.......that would for sure give them the legal cover they need. It just takes a few arse-holes to complain to the right people to create problems for ARP and believe me when I say those people are out there.

    Right now to respond to the texts from your optins, you need to be logged into your ARP back office, however, once we fully launch you will have an app on your phone and you will literally be able to run your whole business from a smart phone!

      Many of these "do it for you" aka "automated systems" have doing just as much work as anyone else that does manual promoting. What does ARP do to save me time and effort, and can it be used to promote other programs?
      Do I still have to write follow ups for an email or SMS campaign?

      Do I have to do ad copy?

      Do I still have to use PPC?

      Do I still have to learn SEO to attract people to the site where they will sign up at?

      Etc, ect..

    For those of us network marketers who have built a business in the event that your leaders have already opted into someone else’s funnel, you have officially lost that leader to a total stranger IF that leader decides to join the ARP Auto Recruiting Platform and buy the system from you. And since most people build these businesses on RELATIONSHIPS, this could cause some serious issues in the marketplace as this platform rolls out.

    In essence, you could be convincing a person to buy the ARP Auto Recruiting Platform based upon your RELATIONSHIP - only to find out later that your leader and all of those commissions get scooped right out from under your feet AFTER THE FACT because they opted into another person’s funnel first.

    Even though the other affiliate has done zero follow up and has not even closed the deal?

    This effect of “tagging” people also means that the people that spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a month on marketing and traffic could, in essence, get the masses to opt-into their funnels by offering some huge bonus, then never do another thing ever again. No relationship building. No follow up. Nothing. Months later, the same person opts into your funnel, you build a relationship and do all of the work, and the commission gets handed over to the Guru

    When people start having their top leaders that they have long term relationships with – pulled from them – AND they start losing their commissions when they did the work to close the person…,what will people start saying about the system? How do you think it would make you feel if your leaders and your commissions got pulled?

    Alternatively, some people may also start slamming the system all over the internet and with social media, that could be DEADLY for the ARP Auto Recruiting Platform.

    I see this one factor of losing commissions and leaders as a factor that could cause industry wide upheaval and bad news to go viral about the system (especially with Network Marketers that build their businesses based upon RELATIONSHIPS). This will prove interesting especially as the ARP Auto Recruiting Platform starts to make it’s way through social media.

    from the outside this looks like a newbie advantage, I still think it gives the Gurus the ability to completely monopolize the marketplace and completely crush the little guy.
