For anyone looking for anything on this company before deciding to join, I hope this helps. I'm not sure not everyone that joins the Dream Lifestyle System is having the same experience, but I will warn you, do not give your money to "guru" Nick Bramble.
First of all, the product in and of itself is just regurgitated crap that has been in Internet e-zines for a good while now, so the $200 you spend is really just throwing away good money. Nick the "Internet Guru" gives you all these..ahem "secrets" on how to advertise in various (and quite saturated) advertising venues (some free, some for a cost) that I have seen years ago and some of these venues aren't even functional anymore?
So, as an alternative to free ads, I decided to use Nick's Dream Lifestyle System "Push Button Marketing Campaign" This is promoted on their web site as: "Totally hands off system. All of the websites, marketing, autoresponders, selling, explaining etc. is done FOR YOU. You simply plug in and start raking in money. It's push button easy, even for a newbie."
When you go to pay the $197.00 to order your campaign, the claim that you'll see is: "When you order your advertising campaign, your website will be placed in front of hundreds of thousands of people almost in an instant. You will get highly targeted, money spending traffic from several top resources including; our profit pulling postcards, Ezines, Email Marketing, Highly Targeted Redirect Visitors, and more."
Well, much to my disappointment, after 3 weeks I have a total of 2, yes 2 opt ins in my Aweber autoresponder account!! DLS claims that you get "Massive, high quality traffic to your site with each month-long Push Button campaign." This is absolutely false. Worse is, you have to buy an Aweber Autoresponder account for $19.00 per month because for 47 more dollars, you get a "replicated" web site (which everyone else out there gives for free) that doesn't have an autoresponder feature. In addition, you actually have to go and pay for a Go Daddy domain and point the domain to the carbon copy website that they sell you for $47.00!
2 weeks ago, I e-mailed DLS support and told them about the issue and they said they would "look into" my campaign. Well 2 weeks (and several more e-mails) later I have heard nothing back from them. Nick Bramble ought to be ashamed of himself.
On a more minor note, when I first got involved with this company, the set up process was also a big problem. You are supposed to e-mail all of your sign up info to Ad Support so they can set up your web site (which as previously mentioned is not unique; it is replicated like everyone else's) along with the "confirmation number" they are supposed to e-mail to you after paying the $247.00 I never received an e-mail with a confirmation number and sent several e-mails to that effect.
Finally, the guy who signed me up sent them an e-mail and they replied back that I sent them the wrong set up info!! The truth is I NEVER sent an e-mail with any info because I never got a confirmation e-mail from these imbeciles! Also, Nick Bramble sent out a broadcast e-mail that politely asked for us to slow down with all the e-mails to support because "his staff have lives too" Can you imagine owning a business and sending something like that out to PAYING customers looking for support?????
I forwarded the e-mail they sent to my friend to support and they were like "oops, sorry wrong choice of words" Can you believe that lack of professionalism?? And on that note, when I explained in frustration all of this to the friend who sold me on this useless "money-maker" his response was "did you look at the back office article on "mind set?"
Yeah Tony, I paid $197.00 for 2 opt ins and I'm supposed to have the right mind set????? He also had the audacity to ask me why so many other people, including newbies were doing well? I'll give the "twice bankrupt father of 5" (which he actually publicly brags about) the benefit of the doubt that he completely missed my point. Twice bankrupt because of all the DLS type schemes he's been ripped off by for the last 15 years. He reminded me of all the money he has had to spend over the years with these programs to get where he had to get (the only $$ he ever made recently was an illegal gifting program) and I guess that was supposed to be the model in which I would live by to get where he is? Sorry Tony, I'm much too responsible to not pay off my debts (twice) and be ripped off again. And by the way, if you're reading this, why did you have to go back to work full time? Where is your "Dream Lifestyle?"
Anyone considering going with Nick Brambles "Dream Lifestyle System" should reconsider. Nick, I'm sure you're living the "dream" and I guess numerous requests for a refund will continue to be ignored. So, I will continue to report your scheme whenever, and wherever I can. This report is a good start, wouldn't you think Nick?
