PMI Coaching has misrepresented themselves to us as consumers. After they got there money and the first week it was great, then I was put on the back shelf. As a business they do not provide the service that they advertised.

After paying 7300.00 they should be able to provide me with assistance... not that I want them to do the work for me, but I am not a consumer that can be taken advantage of. I have the right to be respected and not to be taken advantage of.

I am currently seeking council, so that I will not be the only one taken advantage of. I called them several times politely to speak to them, they never responded, the minute I get angry and tell them that I will be calling my attorney, they responded immediately. (Its a little late)

Truth about internet marketing

AUTHOR: Mitch - (U.S.A.)

Firstly, one can always put a complaint through to the credit card company they used. There's a good chance of getting your money back if you can show deceptive practices. You can also use info. (via referencing the site) from this site to support your contentions. If you used a 'check' you might be able to call your bank to have them attempt to retrieve monies.

Note the following information ebay provides for FREE! This info. isn't presented, and appears to be contrary to what PMI espouses.

Scrap the Search Engines

There are two main reasons why the Search Engines are not a good place to look for real wholesalers.

1. Thousands of Virtual Middlemen are so desperate to get your attention that they have flooded the Search Engines with their own misleading marketing. The many keywords associated with Wholesale Products are the sweet spot for Virtual Middlemen to ply their trade, and when you use those keywords on the Search Engines, you're going to get back thousands of links that will take you straight to them. These people spend so much time, and effort and money flooding the search engines with their ads, that a real wholesaler hardly stands a ghost of a chance of being noticed through all the smoke and mirrors.

2. Real Wholesalers don't really want to be noticed on the Search Engines to begin with! Here's a hard reality: small, home-based businesses are not considered to be much of a catch for a genuine wholesale supplier. The real wholesalers that move and shake the retail world are the most desirable ones for you to work with, but for the most part, they don't really want to work with US, the home-based online business owners.

It's not personal. It's simple economics, from their point of view. The really good wholesalers already have major accounts with huge physical store retail chains. They don't feel that it's worth their time and money to advertise themselves to very small businesses who they don't think will bring in much money for them in the form of a high volume of orders. So, they see advertising themselves in the Search Engines as a waste of time and money.

They may be willing to work with us, they just don't go out of their way to advertise that fact.

That's why the Search Engines are NOT a good place to find genuine wholesale suppliers.

Your goal in Product Sourcing is to buy products from a channel that comes from genuine wholesale suppliers. You will almost never actually work directly with a manufacturer, because manufacturers make things; they don't want to be bothered with selling and shipping them to retail businesses as well. That's why wholesale suppliers exist; they are a service industry that works with product manufacturers in order to get products from the factory to the store, which is a great help to product manufacturers.


So who's got the info?

As you've seen here, doing your Product Sourcing Research is an important task. You could spin your wheels forever trying to contact all the so-called wholesalers you see in the Search Engines and seeing if you can figure out whether they're Virtual Middlemen or not.

There is, however, one resource you can talk to who already knows who the legitimate suppliers are.

Who is it? It's the manufacturer of the products! After all, the manufacturer is the one who Factory Authorizes' their wholesale suppliers to begin with!

Yes, I know I said earlier that you will almost never be able to buy directly from a manufacturer. BUT, that doesn't mean you can't call them and ask them questions!

Using a manufacturer as a research Tool

Manufacturers have Sales departments. They will not sell products to you or me, because we are Retailers. Their job, as Manufacturer's Sales Representatives, is to sell big truckloads and trainloads of their company's products to Wholesale Suppliers, who will then in turn sell them to you and me, the retailers.

Manufacturers Sales Reps know who their legitimate wholesalers are. All you really have to do is call them and ask. Yes, it's really that simple; in almost all cases, they WILL tell you, if you ask the right way!
