Winning Marketing Solutions (previously known as On Stage Marketing) is a complete scam. This company will gain leads of people looking or researching for a home-based business opportunity or are currently or recently unemployed looking to make an additional stream of income during trying times. They CAPATILZE on your weaknesses, emotions and use high-pressure tactics to encourage you to listen to a 45-minute audio call (that is how it all starts). After listening to the call, Ellen Franzoso will call you back to confirm that you watched the video and then the "SELLING" starts! I paid $2, 499 to be on their so-called Dream Team! It's a total joke. What you really end up paying for are elementary-level sales tools mostly about cold-calling, advertising, etc (education you can get for FREE off the general Internet or Google). They claim they will help you increase your income by $50, 000 or your money back (which you will NEVER get back because they will claim that "you just didn't apply their techniques correctly")!
Terry Duff and Gino Niccoli are the owners of this company and they are a SELF-named "Dream Team." This dream team is more of a nightmare. RUN FOR THE HILLS FROM TERRY DUFF or you'll have yourself to blame! The claims they make are preposterous and they extensively exaggerate the necessity in using their program in order to succeed in a home-based business. They state that they are “world renowned experts" on everything related to marketing. It's all about "them" and joining their "special program" in order to be part of this self-claimed dream team. They claim to know the "secrets" of the art and science of marketing; again, much of which is nothing new or innovative in any way, shape or form. ALL THEIR CALLS are prerecorded and are NOT live as they claim they are. Again, lying about what they offer and how they offer it.
After the sales pitch, you choose 1 of 3 Levels.
Diamond - which includes an 8 week course on mindset, the law of attraction, law of abundance...bullshit after bullshit after bullshit, inner circle, mastermind training, and other "must have" information.
Platinum and the Gold - are basically the same thing, but did not include some of the "crucial secrets." This is all backed by FALSE "risk free guarantee" that if after a year, if you haven't made at least $50, 000, you get your money back x2!
I did NOT make $50, 000 and I was told that I would not be getting my money back, but that I could remain a "Lifetime Member" and could continue to "sharpen my skills" through their bogus education program. The costs are the following: Diamond - $2499, Platinum - $1499, and the Gold Package - $999.
These kinds of SCAMS have now become so numerous because of the saturation of internet marketing and the direct sales opportunities that out there. There are too many over-the-top, overblown claims just as in the case with Winning Marketing Solutions. There are a lot of differences between regular marketing and internet marketing and I'm sure there are things "one must know" to be successful, but you cannot find out these secrets and techniques from internet scammers like Terry Duff.
I am currently reporting Winning Marketing Solutions to my states Attorney General's office, the BBB and the Federal Trade Commission and hiring an attorney to represent me in small claims. DO NOT LET THIS COMPANY CONVENIENCE YOU TO JOIN THEIR DREAM TEAM!
