Reverse Funnel System Review: Scam Or Not?

Jul 6, 2008
If you're in the process of the seeking a home based business to either leave your job or simply make more money, I'm willing to bet that you have become quite familiar with Ty Coughlin's Reverse Funnel System. It seems to be everywhere. If that name doesn't ring a bell, perhaps you're more familiar with the capture page with the shirtless, long haired beach bum lounging in a chair with a laptop. It's really picked up some steam over the past year or so and they've made some very bold claims as to how much money members are making. I'm sure you asked yourself if "$5,000-$10,000 per week" and "6 and 7 figure returns" were really possible. Well, it's not really a question of whether or not it is possible but if it is ORDINARY for most members. I'd like to shed some light on these claims and propose an alternative choice that may change your mind about the Reverse Funnel System.

First, let's pick apart the process and examine each piece. Everyone starts out by filling out an "application" which costs $50. Once that is finished, you are provided with all of the details on the system. You then learn that the Reverse Funnel System actually promotes another company known as Global Resorts Network. It's a travel membership club that offers discounted stays at high end resorts, and the $3,000 start up cost is ACTUALLY a fee for signing up with Global Resorts Network. So basically, you have to put your confidence in the Reverse Funnel System and decide if they are the best program to help you earn profits with Global Resorts Network.

Now, the first thing you want to evaluate is the cost of joining the Reverse Funnel System. The membership fee is $3,000 and they suggest that you ALSO have anywhere from $2,000 to $5,000 in startup advertisement costs. Plus, there is an additional monthly fee of $300. For most people, that can easily break the bank. Anybody who has that type of money to throw around generally looks at these type of opportunities to add to their riches, not make them. So what does this tell us? It means that the Reverse Funnel System markets to those who have money. As a result, those who don't have as much to invest have to go elsewhere.

Furthermore, what does this suggested advertisement budget inform us of? It implies that the Reverse Funnel System is very dependent on paid advertisement. So anyone who can afford to invest more in advertisements automatically has a higher probability of success. That doesn't make the system a level opportunity.

The term "there's more than one way to skin a cat" couldn't hold more true when it comes to website advertisement. Paid advertisement is far from the only way to get visitors to your page, but it is obvious that the Reverse Funnel System favors this type. What about the free methods? These would obviously be preferable to those who don't have as much to spend, but I seem to doubt that the Reverse Funnel System pays any attention to them.

Also, what if the Reverse Funnel System is outside of your spending limits? Does that mean that the cheaper opportunities aren't as valuable? Not necessarily. Some people tend to adopt this thought process but the cost of an opportunity isn't always a determinant of how effective or profitable it is.

This brings me to my next subject. Provided you had all of the skills and training to be profitable with any business, could you do it? Theoretically, yes. You always find successful individuals with any company. This is usually because they know what they're doing, and they have experience and the knowledge. If you're new to internet marketing, unfortunately this isn't you. But it doesn't have to be that way. If you know how control internet traffic and direct it to a website of your choice, the options are truly limitless.

What am I trying to say? I'm trying to say that knowing how to properly market online allows an individual to make money regardless of what product they're selling. The skill of knowing how to leverage the internet is priceless. Go to Google and type in "home based business" then close your eyes and click a random business. The experienced marketer could turn a profit from that business. So instead of asking yourself if a certain opportunity will make you profits, instead ask if it will TEACH you to make profits. Big difference.

The only affiliate program that I have seen with a vested interest in teaching its members how to properly market online is Derrick Harper's Wealth Funnel System. Similar to other programs available today, it allows its member's to provide a product that people want. But more importantly, it not only provides access to high yielding ads but it properly educates people how to market online, PERIOD. It doesn't just teach blind advertisement, like other competitors. This ensures your success with not only the Wealth Funnel System, but any other online business you encounter. The fortune is in the skill set.

This concludes my article on the Reverse Funnel System. I hope it'll be of assistance in your evaluation of Ty Coughlin's opportunity. Whatever business venture you take on from this point on, be sure that you have the resources to become successful with it. Don't just put blind faith into a companies promises. Learn to earn the success you want, dont't look to have it given to you a silver platter.

Wishing you the best, Joe Marquez
