Received mailer

AUTHOR: Massoman - ()

I just got a letter asking me to be a part of the lightyear team, only 97 positions available to make money at home. The total cost is far beyond the $299 stated here, it's $325 plus a reduced group advertising fee of $943 for a total of 1,268 th apply for The Automatic Cell Phone Wealth System Co-op. Plus there's a $49.99 monthly fee after that for website fees. Is this legit or just another easy money scam. It is being offered through EB Marketing in FL which checks out OK and Lightyear wireless is a real company. Any coments on this offer?

What Kind Of Extra Things Do You Need To Run A Home Business

AUTHOR: cdawg - (United States of America)

A lot of people think that operating a home business is something that is hard to do, but it's actually something easy if you apply yourself and learn the information. Look at this rebuttal with a careful eye and see what information you can take and use towards your home business goals.

When I first joined Lightyear  Wireless a few months ago,  I discussed it with my friends and family at dinner time.  In order to make your Lightyear Wireless business successful, make your website attractive. The number one thing a person notices when they click on a website is its design. If the website is too flashy or too plain, it may turn customers off. If you are unsure how to design your website, there are many tools online.

If you are currently running, or thinking of running a Lightyear wireless home based business, check out this marketing strategy and you'll be up and running in no time.  Some people think making money with Lightyear  wireless is hard but its not , if you know what you're doing. 

It is important to set boundaries. They are crucial for those who work at home. Everyone in your life will need the boundaries, your kids, spouse, neighbors, clients, or anyone else you work or live it. These people need to know when you are working, when you will return e-mail, and when you will take phone calls, or when you are not.

 The better you are at setting and enforcing the boundaries, the more efficient your Lightyear wireless  business, and your life will be.

With all of the information you just learned you want to try to do the best of you ability to apply it towards your lightyear wireless home business.

Here's Another Side Of The Lightyear REP Story!

AUTHOR: Curtis Frierson - (United States of America)

I also joined Lightyear Wireless as a Representative back in May of 2010!

However, unlike this gentleman, I did my own DUE DILIGENCE about the Company, its Founders, the Business Opportunity, and the COST it required to get involved and REMAIN in business while I pursued a PROFIT FROM being in the wireless business!!!

Chances are this gentlemen, just went for a SALES PITCH from his Sponsor!

That's no reflection on Lightyear or the business opportunity!

I  took my time to write a well though out BUSINESS PLAN, without even talking to my #1 income earning Sponsor, because I didn't want to hear a SALES PITCH with empty promises about how HE was going to HELP ME get started!

This gentleman sounds like he has an ISSUE with the empty PROMISES of his SPONSOR, not the contractual GUARANTEES of Lightyear Wireless!

He should have reached UP in his UPLINE to ask for help, if he thought his direct Sponsor was SLACKING!

Also, anyone can go online and find TOO MUCH information about the MONTHLY fee it takes to KEEP a Lightyear Wireless ONLINE Wireless Store business activated.  

NO one in Lightyear is REQUIRED to pay that $49.99 monthly fee.  They give you the website FREE for the first 30 days, so you
can see the BENEFITS of marketing and ADVERTISING to find both Customers and other Representatives 100% ONLINE!

Otherwise, you will have to do your marketing and ADVERTISING to draw people to you 100% OFFLINE and sign them up using PAPER applications and sending them in to the Company by fax or SNAIL MAIL!

The BUSINESS BUILDING and INCOME BUILDING results from our two START UP experiences is like NIGHT and DAY!

Here it is two years later, as of this writing, and MY BUSINESS START UP PLAN has allowed my business to grow to have over 12,000 downline Representatives and well over 16,0000 Customers, NATIONWIDE!

I'll bet you a dollar to a donut, this gentleman never had a BUSINESS PLAN, and probably don't even know anything about the IMPORTANCE of STARTING OUT in business by having one that is well thought out and well-written!

It should INCLUDE how he will cover his OVERHEAD expenses and ADVERTISING BUDGET, until he get 100% into PROFIT over the first few YEARS in business!

Can you imagine ANY successful business STARTING out from SCRATCH without first considering WHERE their ADVERTISING money will come from?

Without ADVERTING, how will anyone KNOW you are even IN the wireless and downline building BUSINESS!

Just go to the BANK and ask your BANKER to borrow a few hundred thousand dollars to START a wireless business.  Even with EXCELLENT credit, and 10 times that amount in ASSETS, guess what her FIRST question will be?

"Where is your BUSINESS PLAN? I need to READ IT BEFORE we can even CONSIDER lending you ANY amount of money for a BUSINESS!"

Then, go back the very  NEXT DAY to that VERY SAME bank and banker with 20% down to purchase a house of that SAME amount with the same credit and assets, and you will walk out the bank with a 30 year mortgage NOTE that very same day!

What's the difference with the same few hundred thousand dollars BORROWED?

Bankers KNOW the PROFIT they will get when lending you money to buy a HOUSE, but without a well-written BUSINESS PLAN, they have no idea how you will be able to PAY THEM BACK so they can make a PROFIT from the money they lend you!

So, if you are CONSIDERING a Lightyear Wireless business, FIRST do your OWN due diligence, without considering WHAT your Sponsor promises.

Then, get with someone to write a well thought out BUSINESS PLAN that's well enough for you to TAKE TO THE BANK!

That way your chances for BUSINESS and INCOME building SUCCESS will go up EXPONENTIALLY!

Reply - Lightyear Wireless

AUTHOR: LenFlorida - (United States of America)

I did join Lightyear Wireless. This persons report is only partially correct. Yes it cost $299 to create your nationwide wireless store consisting of 3 well done, professional websites and web hosting. (There is an optional plan for $49.95) There is a $49.95 monthly charge for numerous lead capture pages, a great autoresponder, a great business organizer, 25 free double opt-in leads every month, professionaly created sales tools, full color flyers, advertising hand-outs and a whole lot more..

If purchased somewhere else, the market tools, auto responder, etc.  alone would cost over $100 per month. The 25 free double opt-in leads each month are actually priceless but would cost $3 to $5 each elsewhere.

All of these costs are clearly revealed and explained BEFORE anyone signs up or invests in the business. In my 20+ years of direct marketing, I personally have either tried or researched just about all the income opportunities available and have NEVER found one as professional and complete as Lightyear Wireless.

This is "Hands Down" the most common sense income opportunity ever created. The personal satisfaction of helping people save 50% or more of what they are already paying or getting their cell service for free is priceless.

Where else can you start a legitimate, honest online and off-line business for $299? Only $1.66 a day overhead & operating expense ($49.95 a month)?  Unheard of!

BOTTOM LINE: This is a great business opportunity that pays weekly bonuses and lifetime residual income.... For helping folks save money, this is a no-brainer in a class by itself.

It is the BEST investment I've ever made and sincerely recommend it to anyone. It is making me good money and will do the same for anyone who can hand out a business card.

Feel free to contact me anytime.
