If Better Living Global Marketing (aka BLGM) is a Scam Why Are So Many Members So Excited?
I wrote this as advice for people who were thinking about joining BLGM. If you are already a member of BLGM you might be better off reading this; How to Get Your Money Back From BLGM
Several months ago someone, a friend, someone I trust, someone I like, invited me to join a Facebook group that was promoting Better Living Global Marketing (BLGM). I joined him on a 3 way call with one of the top earners and upon learning that I did not want to spend $1200 to join, he (the top earner) thanked me for my time and left the call without explaining what I’d be getting into or what I’d be doing for my money. I stayed on with my friend and told him that I’d keep an open mind and get back to him if I decided to join.
I stayed in the group and watched as the two top earners announced their growing profits on a regular basis but I never noticed anyone else reporting out on how they were doing. Then one day I was removed from the group without an explanation (due to inactivity I guess?). I really wanted to know how my friend was doing but I thought it might be rude to ask. I figured it might be better to do a little research and write a review which would allow me to better decide if this was something I might be interested in.
When I review a product I try to get enough information to help me answer the following question;
Will I Feel Comfortable Promoting This to My Friends and Family?
The first thing I do when reviewing a product or service is I look for testimonials and/or complaints.
If the complaints far exceed the testimonials the review process comes to a screeching halt.
The next thing I look at is price. How much will this cost me? Are there hidden fees? Are there unexpected up-sells? Is there a fair refund policy in place? Can I try it before I buy it? If the cost is too high the review process comes to a screeching halt. Or if there are hidden fees, multiple up-sells, and an unfair refund policy it comes to a halt. Now if there’s a free trial of 7 days or more I may give them the benefit of doubt and continue the review process.
The next thing I look at is the compensation plan. How will I be getting paid? How often will I be paid? How long does it take for me to get paid? Will I be paid by check, direct deposit, e-wallet, PayPal? Basically I tie this to the testimonials and complaints; if people are complaining that they are not getting paid then it makes no sense in continuing the review process, does it?
The next thing I look at is training. I tie this in with the overall cost; if I have to pay a lot of money to fly here and there to get training at some event/pep rally, then buy your book and your DVD, I may have to pass on your opportunity because I would not feel comfortable promoting that aspect to my friends and family and if you tell me that attending events is crucial to my success then the review process is over.
BTW, my friend, who has been in for several months, still can’t explain how it works. This is a clear indication that there is little or no training being provided to members.
Finally I need to know if support is available. Do they answer the phone? Do they return emails? Is there a refund policy? Do they even have a mailing address? This is also tied to testimonials and complaints. If I see in the complaints that your customer service is bad then I’m afraid the review process has come, again, to a screeching halt.
Let’s look at each of these qualifying factors in greater detail;
Testimonials and/or Complaints
I found hundreds of complaints and bad reviews for Better Living Global Marketing (BLGM) and only a handful of testimonials. I found so many complaints and bad reviews I decided I would share a few of them with you;
These are complaints from some unhappy affiliates…
This is from someone who might know a thing or two about the law…
Just to be fair here’s one of the testimonials…
“I just heard that Better Living Global marketing is expected to release millions in funds to who have been waiting several weeks for a return on their investment. That’s great news for the hundreds of BLGM affiliates who have been waiting for their withdrawal requests to get processed.”
But it still doesn’t change my opinion about Better Living.
At this point, without even doing any additional research on cost, compensation, training and support I feel I can answer the question, Would I Feel Comfortable Promoting This to My Friends and Family?
The answer is a resounding NO! They say that where there’s smoke there’s fire and boy was there a lot of smoke.
I’m going to pass on this one and move on to my next review.
