Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I'm very very happy I'm going to write the truth about SMC. I have been employed by SMC for about 4 years but recently got laid off but now I have nothing to lose by releasing the truth to you.

First I would like you to know that SMC is ran by jewish owners that are money hungry. They do not care about there employes. For example business coaches that your promised when you join are not trained at all. There not giving no training for business progress for there members. We are trained to sell the biggest packages to you. For example a VIP gift card Package that has a price of $5195 which I will explained in a secound.

As a business coach I made $420 a week plus commission which I did not care about the members success. I was concerned about making money so guess what when you did not make a purchase for a website I did not want to talk to you any more since you were now waisting my time.

And if you purchase website package I would spend some time with you about advertising your gift cards on line which we (coaches) give all our members the same templates (emails) on how to advertise on classified ads, chat rooms, ebay, blogs sites, myspace, face book, and flyers which me myself never used in my life. And for the other coaches guess what they did not even know how to post such information on line themselfs. Some coaches in my department do not even know how to turn a computer on but we here to show you how to conduct internet marketing. What a joke. So think about this how many members now have the same internet marketing information? 1000's right!! Right! which means your no better than any other member.

So how about those packages? Well here is a list what what you could be offered as a gold member since your looked as a member that has money since you paid your membership in full.

Premier package $9995 with same upgrade website that you can purchase at $595 with only less gift cards which I will get into later. So were was I O yeah. Premier package priced at $9995 this package has a world of product website catalog that does not even include any licensed products like harley davidson, john deer, or any licensed product SMC carriers it will only shows there cheap stuff the one that have no name brand. This package has 2150 of the $10 gift cards, superseller status, and a vip coach O big wow. VIP coaches there no better than myself getting paid by comission as well.

Titanium package $6995 same upgrade website no different than the premier.  This package has 1850 $10 gift cards, superseller status, and vip coach.

VIP package $5195 same dum upgraded site no different than the premier or titanium package. This one has 1335 $10 gift cards, superseller status and vip coach.

Now this disappointing package which may seem that way. But it not. Power fit power house package $3995 with 930 of $10 gift cards, super seller status, and no vip coach but who cares right? Right!!!! now that you know the truth.

Super Seller Package $2795 same upgrade website. This package has 585 of $10 gift cards, super seller status no vip coach. So far no difference only price right? Right!

Blockbuster package $1795 same upgraded site. This package has 285 of $10 gift cards. No vip coach or super seller status but who cares about that as well. Super Status? Well that means you will get $2.50 back on every order placed on your website at $100 dollar or less. It sounds good but as you may noticed by alot SMC complaints you will probly never need this feature.

Platium package $1195 same upgraded site. This package has 105 $10 gift cards and no other benefits.

Gold Package $795 same upgraded site. This package has 60 $10 gift cards and no other benefits. LOL    

Silver package with bottom of all packages the one that all coaches hate to offer since we make no money on this package but except maybe meet our 10 sites per week that we need to sell not to get taken 10% of our commission. This package offers the same website that all other packages off but with only has 15 $10 gift cards.

So ask yourself is SMC really looking out for your business success or your money? I think your money right? Because if they really cared they would offer the silver package first and see how successful you can be then upgrade later. But they know your not going to be successful and trust me your not. Of all packages I have sold in the last 4 years I have not seen one successful member.

I have tooken money from retired members, disabled members and I would like to say sorry for making your situation worse than it was before you signed up.

For the consumer of thinking of joining SMC take you money and save it for a rainy day or go out with your family on nice trip. Please do not spend it here.

Silver members members that paid there memberships in payments you will be offered the same packages upbove but coaches will probable start at the superseller package or even lower depending on appointment conversation.

after making your website purchase

AUTHOR: doghunter - (USA)

After making a purchase of a website package with your coach. Your have a second appointment set up with gift cards support rep.This department is going to try up sell you on additional gift cards and there not there to show you on how to use your site. These additional gift cards are in $25 and $50 bundles. They going try to sell you more before any money is made. I have seen sales hit over $10,000 dollars in a sale before or as low as $256. The gift card department is also going to try to sell you gift cards in exchange of giving you animation on your web page may sound good right? Wrong!!!! Guess what, your customization is no different than any other members sites. FYI your customization is only on this first page as well what a waste.

Beware of SMC business steps on how to get the most of your money before you get more in debt take my advise. If your going to try this program sdtart small or better yet do not start at all.
