“I'll be baack“, are the famous last words of a torn to pieces, half man, half machine movie character, and the dream world called Hollywood brought this character back in four sequels to The Terminator. In the ‘real world‘ and the internet, there are characters that pop up with regularity and continue to introduce low quality products with the intent to clean out your wallet while delivering little or now value at all.
One of these shady figures is a certain Anthony Morisson, known for simply recycling an old product trying to find new buyers. His latest brainchild, Inbox Inner Circle is the subject of my review today.
What is Inbox Inner Circle?
In short, it is supposed to be a training course that teaches you everything about email marketing and CPV marketing (we'll discuss later). You've probably heard “The Money is in the List” and this is true. Once you master the art of list building and email marketing, you may well be on the way to make real money.
The advertised price for Inbox Inner Circle is $67, but clicking away from the sales video several times, you will be able to get the product for $7, and this is what you will get:
- List Building: 3 videos, 35 minutes
- List Explosion: 4 videos, 18 minutes (includes 13 minute sales pitch for $29-$49/month)
- Sending Strategies: 3 videos, 30 minutes
- Opens X3: 3 videos, 23 minutes
- Clicks X3: 2 videos ? minutes
- Analytics: 1 video, 20 minutes
In addition you will get started with a free list of 500 email subscriptions.
Lots of stuff for seven bucks, isn't it? This is a typical Morisson bait to get you on the inside, because a slew of upsells is waiting to clear out your wallet.
- Automation Arbitrage Software suite: $147
- VIP Traffic Black Book + 90 day autoresponder: $97
- IncomeEDU Elite membership: $49/month
- Email 10x Instant Access: $67
- Coaching Program: $?????
Once you get by the upsells (hopefully you kept your credit card in your wallet), you can access the member area.
How is the Inbox Inner Circle Training?
Some of the videos are pretty good with new content, but most of them are recycled from previous products. Anthony didn't even care to change names or thumb nails as one video starts with “Thanks for purchasing Traffic with Anthony“.
Moving right along you will find out that in order to work with Anthony's program, you will have to spend lots more money on additional fees.
- Cool Handle Hosting (recommended) overpriced
- Cost for Solo Ads
- Subscription to WebFire $29 – $49/month for traffic
- EmailEDU $49/month (actually IncomeEDU, several years old Morisson product)
- GVO auto-responder (you must open NEW account to get the promised 500 subscribers)
Bottomline: 60% of the training videos are from previous products and even if you avoid the obvious upsells, you must be prepared to spend way more than $67 per month.
What is the REAL PURPOSE of Inbox Inner Circle?
As I suspected all along, there is another purpose behind this whole thing. The day after my research assistant paid the $7 bucks, he received an invitation to a webinar by Anthony and his brother Adrian. My researcher decided to attend and sat through an ordeal that lasted 2 full hours.
Half the time was spent looking at photo shopped statements of how much money they make with their system. Anyways, they also revealed how Inbox Inner Circle really works. Here is the short version of it:
The whole thing is based on CPV (Cost Per View) ads and how you can place YOUR ads on other peoples websites. CPV ad networks allow marketers to target keywords that appears within the content of a web page. Hovering over the highlighted word reveals a small pop-up that where you're able to link to YOUR squeeze page with the product or service you promote. These ads appear on people's browsers because they have willing downloaded software that may be bundled with something else like a free game. But in return for that software the user allows the ad network to serve ads on various pages they may visit.
Adrian Morisson created a software that helps you leverage CPV marketing and allegedly makes it easier. But here is the catch: The cost to use this software AND get one-on-one coaching by either Anthony or Adrian is a whopping $695 one time payment, or 4 installments of $300. Ouch!!!
Does Inbox Inner Circle Work?
Inbox Inner Circle is teaching you how to leverage email & CPV Marketing. Both methods do work. However CPV marketing like PPC and other paid advertising involves a lot of trial and error. This process can be very expensive to figure out before you're actually making money. Then you have to factor in all the upsells that Anthony is pushing. So it may be extremely difficult to recoup all the money you shelled out to make the Inbox Inner Circle work for you. But in theory the concepts can work if you can make them profitable.
So Is Inbox Inner Circle a Scam or Legit?
It's not a scam. They are teaching you marketing techniques that do work. But CPV marketing can be viewed as a bit sketchy because it's based on software that installs ads that take over the websites people visit. Now keep in mind people do opt in to receive this software. But it's still a bit sketchy in some people's mind. There is inherit risk that you'll be losing money as you figure this system out. So you have to go into this knowing this and being comfortable with that idea. Most people aren't.
Aside from that I'm not big on the various upsells and recycling of his old products. But none of this is illegal. With all that said, personally I would avoid this Inbox Inner Circle product for some of the reasons I laid out above. But if they don't concern you, feel free to give it a shot. At least now you won't go into it blindly.
If you're looking for another option, I would encourage you to check into My Top Free Work At Home Recommendation and My Work At Home Courses. Both have helped me earn a nice comfortable income from home and I'm confident it can help you as well. So be sure to check them out if Inbox Inner Circle isn't appealing to you.
