Xtreme Postcard Profits System (I am unsure of the exact web address, because this one http://www.xtremepostcardprofits.com/ says that the domain is invalid).
The Xtreme Postcard Profits System is a work from home business opportunity based on creating and sending postcards. Our review of the system includes program details, required skill levels and our assessment of the targeted audience.
What is a postcard system and how is Xtreme Postcard Profits System different?
A postcard program essentially offers assistance with developing a post card direct mail campaign. Just to clarify, since it is not presented when visiting the Xtreme Postcards Profits System site, the program essentially assists users with developing postcard mailers to promote various businesses. The Xtreme Postcards Profits System includes instruction on design, creation, obtaining recipient mailing lists and tracking the progress of responses.
Who is best suited for the Xtreme Postcard Profits System?
As the program is described, essentially any level of marketer or sales person would be able to use the system with little difficulty. The program is certainly targeted at beginners, however, due to the simplicity of the card design and the assistance from the back-end of the system, should that be required. The postcard is described as a purposely simple, non-glossy design utilizing thought provoking text rather than images. Admittedly, a simple postcard design is much cheaper, particularly if the buyer is responsible for all costs associated with printing and mailing the cards. Additionally, we did find reviews that indicated that nine-five percent of the program is automated, with relatively low participation.
More Details on XtremePostcards Required
Although some of the aspects of the program are quite clear, others are left unexplained. We are under the assumption that more details are disclosed once you join the program, but for most that may be too late. One very important detail that remains undisclosed is the type of businesses the postcard program is promoting.
It is explained that for every respondent that enrolls with the member of the Xtreme Postcards Profits System based on the information provided on the postcard, that member receives $100.
Additionally, should those members recruit new members; the original sponsor receives $100. From this description, we can deduce that the Xtreme Postcards Profits System uses a multi-level marketing pyramid pay-out program.
Other details to consider
Firstly, direct mail campaigns, regardless of the type of business venture, are highly unreliable. Success rates, without careful research and planning, are extremely low. Even if you have experience with direct marketing, it is difficult to put those skills to use without knowing the full details of the program, i.e., type of business to be promoted and target market profile. Secondly, the costs for this type of program may seem insurmountable, initially. One particular description of the program state that it takes almost fifteen responders to your postcard mailers to cover costs. If each responder is worth $100, this reveals that you need a minimum of $1500 to invest in this venture.
