Have You Had Success With A Pushbutton System?

29 replies
The questions is this: Are you one of the people who has had success with one of those gee whiz push button systems that makes a ton of cash every day with little or no work? You know the ones I'm talking about.

Here is a quote from my inbox this morning, "It's pretty crazy! So many people rushed to the site yesterday they actually crashed the servers! The site is back up now and you can see the $1,549 per day system in action on this page blah blah..."

My point is that you rarely get a report after the initial excitement of an offering. Naturally, if your purchase has opened a gold mine for you, you might be less than enthusiastic about hopping back here to report....But maybe now you will for a goldmine that has played out...

I wouldn't expect details, but I'd just like a sampling of folks who have pounced and it payed off. Or not.

Thanks
Norm

    Norm, the only push-button system I've ever had any consistent success getting money from is the ATM at my bank. And even that requires that I make more deposits than withdrawals...

    There was a post here recently saying that 97% of people who try Internet Marketing fail. I've seen stats that verify that. Are there push button systems that actually deliver a viable business plan/model? Sure there are.

    But if the above figures are correct, and I believe they are, it doesn't really matter what plan a person uses because they can't or won't do the heavy lifting that needs to be done to get the prize. And somtimes it takes considerable heavy lifting to install the push button that delivers the goodies.

      A pushbutton system is something that I would be very skeptical about. When it comes to making money online you will see many products like these and for the most part they are scams.

      If you really want to make money online legitimately you will need to find a course that will teach you the skills to do so. Once you develop your skills you can have an online business that runs on autopilot one your set up. But this is something that will take time.

He smiled and said he did. He said that his company had done extensive research into it several times and found that only 3% made money. And that stat held throughout the entire industry as other information companies also kept tabs.

        But there was more. He also said they had factual data confirming that only 10% of the people who bought books and tapes (this was the early 90s) even looked at them when they got home. He told me his company had recently produced a tape set where the second tape in an eight tape course came out blank and somehow made it past quality control. At the time they'd sold nearly 300 sets and only received two complaints on the blank tape. That says a lot right there.

        He was very candid with me and went on to say that people are in love with the idea of making big money but not with actually doing what it takes to make it. I never saw anything in print myself but this guy was for real. In fact, he had a lot more to lose telling me this stuff since I might have just thrown up my hands saying the odds were against me so why even try.

        Then I asked him a question that has stayed with me forever. I asked that knowing the stats on how many people fail, didn't it bother him to be selling the information at all. He lit up with a big smile and said, not at all. Who the hell am I to know who those three percent are?

        I actually bought their course and turned a couple of deals with it. I ended up going on to flip many houses during the 90s though I did that with a different technique.

          Hi Guys!
          There are about a dozen replies so far. I'm very gratified that you took the time to comment.

          Honest? The fix was in before I asked. I knew the answer. Still, I was and am prepared for someone to come along and say for definite that, "Yup, I got me on of them gee whizzers and started making $5000 a day from day one and that was 11 years ago."

          I don't think it's gonna happen but it could. This whole thing has been discussed to death here, all with the same results. The big difference with MY query was I don't think anyone ever asked if there was anyone out there who actually scored with a push button gimmick. I was curious.

          Why in the heck, then do we keep falling for it? Part of the answer is above in bold. The rest is here... A gimmick might work. The ROI on a $17 investment would be incalculable if it worked.

          I have a selfish reason for asking this question. I'm about to see if I can get a thread accepted on my one sure fire non push button idea. This is part of my research.

          What anyone who knows me will tell you is that, I, without fail, tend to do everything the hard way. In the case of selling a marketing technique here, obviously, push button works. Therefore I must go the opposite direction.

          That being the case, will a scheme that actually takes work stir any interest? Man, I have my doubts. But I'm going to forge ahead anyway.

          My work at home method isn't quite as good as a portable force field, but it ranks right up on there with potential...IF you're willing to use your noggin.

          In the meantime, I continue to be in awe of my fellow Warriors. There are more brains here in this one place than gold in Fort Knox. Seriously.

          Norm

          Too right... quote "people are in love with the idea of making big money but not with actually doing what it takes to make it."

          All processes are viable, just need to do the leg work to get there!

        If such a push button system existed, a make money IM forum would only need one thread, wouldn't it? People could come in, pick up the answer, create their button and collect the money. easey peasey

        IM sales copy is fascinating. In selling physical products, sales pages offer comparisons with similar products, list special features, detailed specs,etc. IM sales copy is often aimed at suspending your disbelief, putting common sense on the back burner and feeding your dreams. Hey - it sells.

    There can't really exist a push button system, as any method dries off as more people start to do it. Also, why would he sell a method that REALLY makes $1500 / day for $37 or $67 or whatever...

    The truth is there might be some value to learn from that though... and if you have a creative mind you can actually make money with the method...

    After spending 4 years trying out various "push button" techniques, it dawned on me that the best way to be successful with them isn't to actually use the system as they give it to you - but rather to study it, and put your own unique spin on it. This is what separates the successful IMers from the failures, in my opinion.

    Best,

    Pushbutton systems are not worth their own weight in dog muck.

    If they worked, everyone would be leaving their jobs, pushing the virtual buttons and moving to the Turks and Caicos Islands.

    You want to be rich? Get out there, formulate an original idea and put up with the blood, sweat and tears until you see the return you dreamed of. Worked for me, works for thousands of others on this forum.

    I think that both of our personal views and experience color our take on this. I didn't actually see any stats but I attended lots of seminars and got to know the "seminar junkie" profile pretty well.

    I once paid $5000 for a four-day real estate seminar. There were 350 attendees. Each of us received a huge box of the training materials required for the four days with instructions to read and absorb everything in the box.The event was actally four weeks off so there was plenty of time to comply. This event was run and taught by Robert Allen of Nothing Down fame. For more than 25 years Nothing Down was the #1 selling financial book in the country. That book and one other along with all kinds of workbooks and other extensive training stuff was in the box.

    On the first meeting of the event we were all herded into a huge auditorium. The warm up guy for Bob Allen was giving the group a pep talk and the topic turned to the box of prep materials. The guy asked for honest answers in a show of hands on how many people had followed instructions and read everything. Three hands went up. I was one of the three. For a $5000 course I would have swallowed broken glass if they asked.

    There were another 50 or so who had looked the stuff over and the rest hadn’t even opened the box. That's for a $5000 course.

    I've made a habit to pay attention in life and have found the 3% rule to hold true very often. But I will admit I almost never have the means to prove it.

    I look at our society, our culture. To me it often seems like only 3% of the actual population is where we find the real movers and shakers, the true innovators.

    Maybe another 7% or so are also very bright people and act as facilitators to the top 3%. The rest are the worker ants. And that's not to say that the people who pick the beans and change the tires and all the rest aren't good people. It's just that they often don't seem to aspire to greater heights.

    These are the very people who love the idea of getting rich and will even pay $5000 for a seminar to learn legit techniques. But these are also the people who have a huge chuck of change ($5000) invested in their future and won’t even read the prep material. So it goes…

    Of course, this is just personal observation and I can't prove the three percent thing.

    I've actually had success with a lot of push button systems. They all revolved around me pushing a lot of buttons on my keyboard though.

    Never a push button system that just makes me money by clicking a button. Like the clickbank products that get rebranded into 50 products of the same lol. You know... the ones with the hooker, or the drunk IM genius that gives way his secret lol. That focus on "What the Gurus won't tell you!" lol. None of that crap is real. Never was real...

    As a matter of fact YES. But with some twists to it, like Adwords - it's a pushbutton system, kind of. To be honest, the simple the "thing" the better it works. Just sayin.

      ----------

      John, you are a man of rare wisdom. And so far, no takers. Not a single millionaire. Adwords doesn't count, btw. We're talking a for real, only three left at this price geewhiz.

      Also, I'm starting to see evidence that some of my fellow Warriors are students of human psychology. This is to be expected.

      Perhaps they can explain why us guys who haven't just gotten off the last bus to town sometimes bite. Knowing better. Kicking ourselves all the way. Doing that which we do not wish to do. Ha! Going to see the elephant one last time until next time.

      Greed? Premature brain death? Rapture of the deep?

    Nope. I've tried Forex software that claimed this... classified ad software that claimed this... article marketing software that claimed this... and video marketing software that claimed this.

    Guest what?... none of them brought me a ton of money.

    Ok well i'll admit... i did make $1 with the Forex software i was using.

    Depends what you define as "success."

    I've had success with using auto-blogging (a push button solution pretty much) to build content on my private blog network I use just for link building. That in turn has helped my money sites.

    But truthfully, anything that is worthwhile is going to take some time and effort.

    One of the first things I bought was from a noted Warrior, and it was something I considered "push button." Everything was laid out, auto-responder series, squeeze page, product that was a free download that I could put my affiliate ID into, and a soup to nuts setup of everything.

    So, I set up the system and saw very little results. I think that was because he had sold this system to serval other people who were doing the same thing I was. It was only until I tweaked the system that I started making money.

    All in all I've probably spent $200-$250 on the system, domain, articles, and hosting. and have made over $1000 between affiliate sales and adsense on autopilot in 2011.

    I think if I continued on with the site it would make more money. This is something I am looking into for 2012. Update the site with fresh content

    The bottom line is, you can earn money with a system but always be open to optimize it and tweak it yourself because that's when the real money starts rolling in.
