Know This if you are going to sign up: They give you a "Free" website which is called "Big Value" I believe. There is a Big problem with this: if you do not cancel the website within a month, they will charge you for web hosting and a maintenance fee which is around 100 dollars. That is the first sign of a Scam.
So, after that happened, I realized that this was not going to make me anymore money than what I am paying for the membership fee each month. I decided that I was going to cancel. I did not want a refund, but I did not want to have to keep paying 40 dollars each month.
So, I called to cancel and they told me that I couldn't! I did not realize when I signed up that if I did not cancel within 30 days then I was committed to a whole year of payments. So, I had to continue paying and I am still paying.
The total of the year is 480 dollars I believe. But, I lost more money because they charge you to get Catalogues on top of the Membership Fee.
Be aware of this: They don't make their' money by You selling their' Products. They make their' money upselling. What I mean by that is Selling You those Websites, Over-charging you for Web Hosting, Charging you for Catalogues, Charging you for things that you didn't know that you were going to be charged, basically.
Also, you should know that if they charge you 39.99 for your first month and every month after, but the first month is considered 24.99 your membership fee and 15 dollars for shipping and handling/Mailing you the Kit(Which you HAVE to get to sign up, and it doesn't cost that much to mail that kit). They do that so that if you DO get your refund within 30 days they have to refund you $24.99 instead of $39.99, and you HAVE to send back the FREE kit in order for them to cancel you OR get a refund, No Matter What! So be careful.
Be advised of SMC, they want to make money, they don't want You to make money.
Since I found realized that SMC was a bad company, I discovered a Man named Mack Michaels. He is a very well known internet marketer. He is mostly known for being a man that Does work on the Internet One Time and he continues to make money from it. You could say he Sets it and Forgets it. Anyways, I became a member of his club, Maverick Money Makers, and since then I have started averaging $120 every day. It's not a Million Dollars yet, but I am only on my second month.
It costed me less than 100 dollars to do, and now I only work a few hours a day, other than still working my other job. But, I am going to quit anytime now so that I can spend more time with my Wife and Daughter. Just so you know, There is a 60 Money back Guarantee with Maverick Money Makers, so if you try it out and Don't make enough money to quit your job, then get a full refund with no questions asked.
Well, that's all for me, I have said my Piece about my experience with SMC and told You what I do now. I'm as happy as I've ever been Maverick Money Makers, and I'm glad to tell you about my experience.
