Welcome to the My Lead Gen Secret Review!
Are you struggling to get your offer in front of a targeted audience?
Tired of not making no money at all?
Do you need an online business where you can start promoting affiliate products, immediately?
As all the Gurus say, “the money is in the list.”
Well, today, in this review, you’ll learn from an updated ex-member’s experience.
When I initially reviewed this program, I was indeed excited. MLGS doesn’t require much work, and yes you can see results with it.
I’ve tested the program for 6 months. Spent a total of $270 and earned a whooping $70.00 back.
I don’t recommend this program for many reasons. I’ll go into further details below.
Program Website: www.myleadgensecret.com
Price: $30 one time set up fee + $30.00 per month
(additional upgrade fee of $29.95 one time for a master email swipe.)
Owners: Jim Harmon
Best For: It’s supposed to be for Anyone
SUMMARY: My Lead Gen Secret (MLGS) is supposed to be a lead generation system, giving you 100 to 200 daily leads.
This program is making waves across the internet, like no other.
If you don’t know anything about paying for leads, it usually puts a massive dent in your pocket.
Especially, for targeted leads.
And if you’re new to marketing, paid ads is another option but, a huge learning curve.
Plus you’ll need a decent budget to get started.
However, once you have the skills to get the job done, you’re golden.
What Is My Lead Gen Secret?
Without getting eyeballs on your offer, you won’t make any sales.
No sales, equals no money.
According to Jim Harmon he’s created this program to help the little guys out.
I came across this system several times, and I finally decided to take a look further.
The difference with MLGS is, that the creator shows his face. The cost is also nowhere near what the other two programs wants you to pay.
On top of that, from what I’ve experienced the support team at MLGS are responsive and very helpful.
So, what exactly is it?
It’s a Can-Spam emailing marketing platform, where you will receive 100 leads per day.
Once you receive your leads, you can email your leads once every 24 hours.
(At no extra charge, they can be emailed directly from the MLGS mailer.)
By the end of each month, you should have acquired 3000 leads.
Isn’t that insane?
Here is how the equation looks.
100 leads per day x 30 days in a month = 3000 leads for the month.
Indeed, I agree, it’s insane and something that I’ve never heard of.
Anyhow, with Google Adwords, and Facebook ads increasing by the day, you’re competing with the big time spenders, just to get one lead.
And to get that one lead, it could cost you what seems like a fortune for some.
So, if this isn’t groundbreaking news!
Then you should know firsthand that paying for fresh hot leads isn’t as easy as you thought. Plus, it’s not cheap.
Regardless, My Lead Gen Secret is supposed to be a cost-effective way for you to gain high quality leads for your business, blog, MLM, networking marketing company.
Hence, I have to disagree with the high-quality leads.
So, How Does It Work?
You probably get the idea all ready.
Receive 100 leads per day, and every 24 hours you’ll revive new batch.
Once you get your first referral, you’re leads will increase to 200 per day.
- Select the Amount of Leads you’d like to email
- Add your affiliate products to the email
- Don’t forget to select the “Perfect Timing” option.
- Sit back and wait for the results
The leads you receive are supposed to be permission-based-leads. So according to Jim this is completely legal and GDPR compliance.
Is it really?
Now, I am no lawyer or GDPR expert but, in my opinion, this system is not fully GDPR compliance.
At least not for you, and I’ll explain here shortly.
Is My Lead Gen Secret GDPR Compliance?
As I mentioned previously I’m no GDPR expert but, I was reading this article called GDPR Sales. It talks about how you can find new customers WITHOUT breaking the law.
Purchasing a lead list happens to be an issue that the author addresses and from what I understand from the author’s article, I can’t confidentially say that MLGS is GDPR compliance.
Meaning, that the list may be in compliance for MLGS, because, they are the one’s who collected the leads.
Even when you use the MLGS mailer, this could still keep you in compliance.
See the image below, “it states you can use OUR Can- Spam Compliant mailing platform.”
Now, let’s think over this the moment you download the leads. Upload them to another email marketing platform, are you still in compliance?
Remember the leads never subscribed to “You“. They subscribed to Jim.
In fact, I truly believe that the leads don’t know the reason why you’re emailing them. Every time, I emailed a lead personally, they never responded.
This seems to be a common problem
Anyhow we are told the lead requested information, and according to MLGS this is 100% legal.
Regardless, within MLGS mailer you send an email to a lead, the problem is there is no option to unsubscribe from the email list, which according to this article can violate the rules of consent under GDPR.
The leads will come with the following:
- The date the lead opted in
- First and last name
- IP Address
- Email Address
I do not think you will build the life of your dreams with this program. It has many concerns, and could lead to instability.
What Millionaires Aren’t Telling You?
They’re driving the fancy cars, private boats, and even living in the masons.
There’s nothing wrong with that, but what they rarely expose, is how they’re making money.
If they did, expose it their status would disappear.
So, according to Jim, he has helped many of the “Guru’s” in this industry. Therefore, he knows exactly what they do and what they aren’t doing.
They use the funnel method.
The same approach, I mentioned earlier, where you build a sales funnel, attract as many people as you can, and then promote products to them.
They also split the cost of acquiring leads to their funnel, which why they call it permission based leads.
High Quality Leads, Yeah Right?
First and foremost, their proclaimed high-quality leads, are misleading.
When MLGS is referring to high quality leads. Are they considering the country the leads come from? Or are they referring to the actually quality of the lead?
According to MLGS, these leads are the same leads that millionaires use. So, one would think that the leads are very motivated buyers.
I have to disagree about the quality of the leadswithin My Lead Gen Secret Emailing System.
The leads aren’t millionaire marketer leads for sure.
In fact, the leads aren’t very responsive or motivated at all.
If we are referring to the country the leads come from, then indeed they are considered high quality.
About 97% of them come from the US, and the other 3% come from UK, Australia, and Canada.
Pin Me Please! 😀
What Offers Are The Leads Interested In?
I’ve had many people ask what products, services, or niches work with these leads.
After testing the service, it seems that the best option for these leads are the business opportunity offers.
However, according to support, they claim that members have converted offers in the following niches.
- Weight loss
- Diet and fitness
- Plus, many more.
If you’re unsure about your offer, MLGS has a support line that you can contact. An agent will give you advice based off other members campaigns.
How Can You Email Them?
Here is a major discrepancy when it comes to how and what you can do with your leads.
On the sales page you’ll learn that you can upload the leads into your own email marketing system, as you can see with the message below.
You can not upload these leads to your own autoresponder.
Aweber has banned the leads from being uploaded to their system. They also have been known to shut down your entire account if they find the MLGS affiliate link within your emails.
MailChimp doesn’t agree with affiliate marketing. So, it may not come as a surprise when they don’t agree with MLGS offer being sent out their their platform.
GetResponse, is a pretty lenient email platform but, they do not agree with uploading the MLGS leads either.
I have sent a few links through my GetResponse account and nothing happened but, this does not mean your account is not at risk.
Also, I later found out that many marketers are not using popular email platforms, they are using self-hosted autoresponders.
I tested out a self-hosted autoresponder for myself because, I wanted to know how it works.
A self-hosted autoresponder is the only way to email thousands of leads. It’s also a huge learning curve. Plus a ton of work.
Even with a self-hosted autoresponder you’re running a risk of getting your domain name blacklisted, banned, or shutdown.
As you can see in the image below I have a list of 153,975 leads that came from the MLGS program.
Before uploading the leads into my self-hosted autoresponder, they were sent to a cleaning services called Klean13.
During the cleaning services all the bad emails were taken out.
When I uploaded the leads, they were run through another service which checks for blacklisted emails, and so on.
The point is, when I started out with the list of leads, I had about 318k valid leads.
Comparing the image above and the image below, as you can see about half of the leads are definitely bogus.
I also sent out a blast email to all 153,974 leads. That email contained the MLGS program itself, and My Online Startup.
Shockingly there wasn’t any sales but, many clicks.
It still amazes me how I achieved a very high click through rate according to MLGS dashboard with not even one sale.
Not only that, My Online Startup at the time was a free program to join. No credit card was needed.
Is My Lead Gen Secret A Scam?
I can’t say it’s a scam, you will get 100 leads per day. And, after making your first sale, your leads will increase to 200 daily leads.
I can also admit that MLGS does pay you immediately after you have met their $30.00 threshold. I’ve actually received a payment from them myself.
Payments are received via PayPal, Bitcoin, or Mailed Check.
I’ve noticed that many marketers prefer to receive a mailed check for the fear of losing their PayPal account. So, I have no clue on what the deal is there
Either way, there are several successful members within this platform making money with the system but, it could be that their selling to many beginners.
Another concern I would like to mention is that. When I did send out the 153,975 emails. As I mentioned earlier, one of the offers I sent out was MOS (My Online Startup).
According to my MLGS dashboard I received several clicks to the offer. But, according to MOS and Clickbank, I received none. I contacted both Clickbank and MOS, they both asked me if the email list was legit.
My Lead Gen Secret Scam The FAQ’s For MLGS & Concerns
Can a complete newbie do this?
I would say yes and no. First off, I don’t recommend this program to a beginner.
A complete newbie can do this, if you send emails from the mailer everyday.
It requires little to no work.
You might get a few sign-ups, and make a commission here and there.
You’ll also notice that your sign-up’s will cancel within the first 30 to 60 days, which means you won’t receive recurring commissions.
At first, I thought MLGS was newbie friendly but, now I can’t agree.
If you’re trying to make a decent income out of this method, you’ll need to recruit outside people.
Many of the members who promote this program all over the web, already know how to market.
Marketing is not taught within this platform.
Also, if you can remember, Jim said that these are the same types of leads that many millionaire marketers are using.
If that is the case, then the leads would be truly high-quality.
Also, shouldn’t the leads convert with more ease?
Either way, recruiting other people into a lead system wasn’t part of the deal.
The deal was, you’ll get 100 high-quality leads that millionaire marketers use daily. You also wasn’t supposed to be stripped of your hard-earned money, and it wasn’t supposed to take more than 20 minutes per day.
Most members have to recruit other members or leads to make this system work. Meaning, they are putting in more than 20 minutes of work per day.
In fact, many of them are promoting on Facebook and YouTube almost all day.
That was not part of the deal. Either way, I wouldn’t recommend this to a beginner.
Are the referrals Real people?
I’ve seen many people say the leads are real. While others have quietly said that these leads are nothing but bots, which one is the truth?
Unfortunately, I can’t confirm.
One thing I can’t wrap my head around is, I’ve emailed the leads personally and asked them if they were real people.
That email immediately, sent alarms.
After sending out that email, my click through rate and open rate went through the roof.
I thought for sure, I would get some sort of action then.
Needless, to say none of the leads responded to that email.
However, after requesting to cancel my account I mysteriously received a personal email from one of my leads and she claimed to enjoy the program.
I removed the customer name for privacy reasons.
I sent my referral an email back, letting her know that I had bonuses and a private Facebook group to help her succeed with the program.
Strangely she never responded again. This scenario happened every time, I asked to cancel my account.
Do you have to invest in anything else?
After trying many programs, I’ve learned that the best way to sustain long term success is invest in your own website. The reason being is if a company shuts down so, will your paycheck.
And if you own your website, you could move in a different direction a lot easier.
If you want to start a website. I recommend this community. It will teach you marketing, and how to make money with your website.
You’ll also get the support that you need and best of all you’ll learn to make money the stable way.
So, in short No, you don’t have to invest in anything else.
You could literally just use the MLGS mailer.
However, as mentioned earlier, the people who are seeing a huge success with this program are doing more than just emailing the list with the MLGS mailer.
Meaning they are investing in other tools.
Such as the self-hosted autorepsonder, and buying solo ads.
They’re also promoting the program on YouTube, forums, social media, or anywhere they can share their affiliate link.
Is there a community?
Not, at this time there is not a community. I asked support about a community and they claim they have one in the making.
That question was also asked during May 2019. It is now March 2020, and no community has yet to be formed.
If you’re looking for a MLGS community, it’s best for you to search on Facebook. There are many groups that will support you.
Do you need to sign a contract?
No, you will not be locked into a contract.
You can cancel at anytime.
Your monthly payment is $30.00 per month, and even after you cancel you can still remain an affiliate.
How Many Accounts Can You Have?
As odd as it sounds, you can have more than one account. I’ve had two different accounts with MLGS at the same time.
Is it hard?
No, you’re literally just copying and pasting emails and hitting send.
I’ve made 14 sales by literally just emailing the people on the list.
The problem is there is no value in doing this, all you’re doing is selling the same system over and over again.
Or you’re just selling products to people that might not even work.
By the way, none of my referrals from the MLGS list ever made a sale.
With having said that, I would have to say this system wouldn’t help a beginner.
Again, you might make a little money with the program but, you won’t learn the proper way to make money online, which isn’t good for your future success.
These are cold leads.
So, if you decide to give them a try it can take time before you see action.
Then again, just like many other members you may not see a sale at all.
Is success guaranteed?
No, success can never be guaranteed with any online business. As mentioned before there are many members who didn’t receive a dime.
Another thing, I’d mention is many of the members in this program have been online for awhile and never made a dime. So, they like the idea of making money with MLGS.
As I mentioned earlier, this system isn’t difficult and you may see your first commissions.
The one’s making good income within the program, are marketers who have experience, and previous following.
Do the customers open up the emails?
From my experience, according to my stats, they do open up the emails but, I also noticed a few things.
When a lead joined my down-line from the My Lead Gen Secret mailer list.
I would immediately invite them to a private Facebook group, plus offer support and bonuses.
All the leads that I reached out to with my personal invitation never responded to me.
I’m not sure what to think about that.
By the way, I’ve seen many members report this same issue but most will keep it hush-hush.
They’ll tell you to keep promoting and testing.
Well, I’ve tested for 6 months, 2 different accounts, and the results are still the same.
There are just too many unanswered questions that I can not piece together at the moment.
Either way, they do open the emails.
100 fresh new leads every day, is it true?
Yes, every 24 hours you get fresh new leads. These leads can also be downloaded to an excel spreadsheet or whatever platform you choose to use.
I’ve also noticed that none of my leads were repeat. So each lead had a different name, email address, and location.
- Cost is affordable.
The Leads Information is from (USA, UK, Canada, Australia)
- It’s Not A Scam
- Jim Is Real
- Support is good
- No Training
- New Company
- Not Sure How Long The System Itself Will Last.
Who Should & Shouldn’t Join?
Personally, I don’t recommend this program.
These are cold leads, so they don’t know who you are.
Meaning it still can take time to convert. Plus, at this time I can’t even confirm is the people are real.
Anyhow, you shouldn’t join if you’re not looking for an online business opportunity.
You also may not want to join if you don’t want your offer in front of more people eyeballs.
Another reason, you shouldn’t join is, if you’re looking for long term success.
If you’re looking for a quick way to make money online. Or you just want to see your first dollar, MLGS may be for you.
Either way, acquiring leads can be costly.
So the leads can’t be given out for free.
According to Jim, for a limited time, you’ll be able to get in on this opportunity for $30.00 a month.
Is it worth it? I would have to say no.
On the other hand, if you were to ask me why did I stay so long.
It’s simple I spent at least a thousand dollars on solo ads and paid traffic with no results whatsoever.
With My Lead Gen Secret I spent a fraction of the cost and seen results very quickly but, not enough for me to justify keeping the program.
There are some things that I can’t wrap my head around, and I’ve mentioned many of my concerns throughout this review. So, at the end of the day, I still don’t recommend it.
My Lead Gen Secret Compensation Plan
The best part about the MLGS system is if you don’t have an offer to promote you can promote the system itself.
Even if you have an offer, you still can promote the system.
Either way, there is an unlimited earning potential, and here is how it works.
#1. Earn $5.00 per month for every member who purchases directly from your affiliate links.
#2. Receive $4.00 per month when your referral makes a membership sale.
Then it goes down for about 5 levels. (almost sounds like an MLM)
#3. You can also receive commissions on master swipe emails upgrades. This pays you up to 5 levels deep.
Here is what you can expect from that.
- 1st level – $5.00
- 2nd level – $4.00
- 3rd level – $3.00
- 4th level – $2.00
- 5th level – $1.00
After your commissions have accumulated to $30.00, then you can request payment through PayPal, Check Or Bitcoin.
By the way, you can also pay for your MLGS account with Bitcoin.
Anyhow, as mentioned earlier I said that they paid me within hours.
So, how can they pay you so quickly?
It’s simple; there isn’t a “get your money back option.”
The only way you can request a refund with this system is if you didn’t receive your 100 leads as promised.
Weekly Superstar Bonuses
So, what is the weekly superstar bonuses?
It’s where you can win an unlimited number of $100.00 bonuses each week.
Simply refer 5 new confirmed memberships within 7 days, and you’ll get a bonus.
Pretty cool, right?
In other words, if you get 30 new sign-ups within a week times, you can earn a $600.00 bonus.
Again, it’s not as easy as they make it seem.
My Lead Gen Secret Tools, Training + Support
When I discovered the training videos, I must admit I was highly disappointed. I have no idea how the training video would help a newbie.
The training videos are about 10 minutes long.
I might as well say there is no useful training videos.
There’s two short video but not a solid training that you can follow.
Either way, I guess, that’s why you’re highly encouraged to get the master email swipe when you join, because you won’t have to sit around wondering what you need to say to your leads.
I purchased the master email swipes and they seemed a little scammy. Okay, they were a lot scammy. I never felt comfortable placing my name at the end of the emails.
Now, that’s horrible!
They basically promised people riches by the next day which simply isn’t true, and not at all possible as a beginner.
My Lead Gen Secret Up-Sells
The investment for this system is $30.00 for a one-time setup fee.
You’ll pay $30.00 per month until you decide to cancel your membership.
If you cancel your membership, you will not have to pay for the account setup again.
However, if you start a new account as I did, you will have to pay a new set-up fee because, i’s a new account.
A new account comes with new leads, and a new affiliate link.
Anyhow, the there are several up-sells $29.95 -Master Email Swipes.
If you choose not to invest in the master email swipes during the time you join.
Then you’ll be offered the master email swipes at $59.95 after you have logged into your account.
Jim himself wrote the emails.
Are they worth it?
In my opinion, no, they sound like a scam. Nothing I want my name attached too.
When I tested out the program, I used the 30-day Master Swipes and only 3 out of 30 emails converted for me.
Additional Traffic Source (Up-sells)
I haven’t tried any of the sources below.
I have only tried My Lead Gen Secret. Anyhow, the additional traffic sources all optional.
By the way, not too many people within MLGS have used the below options either.
This is where you can get your website listed in over 30k + newspapers across America
- Package one: $60.00/month for 200-250 Visitors
- Package two:$125.00/month for 50 to 550 Visitors
- Package three: $399.00/month for 1800 – 2200 Visitors
70 Prospects with an genuine interest level between 75-100% are delivered to you on a daily basis.
- $30.00 one time set up fee
- $29.95 per month
Twice Confirmed Traffic
TCT buys traffic and tests it for conversion rates. If they see it converts once. They test it again. Hence this is where the twice confirmed traffic gets its name.
- $59.95 per month
My Final Opinion Of My Lead Gen Secret
Above all, My Lead Gen Secret isn’t a scam due to the fact that you will get your daily leads. I did get paid real money straight to my PayPal account.
If I learned anything with MLGS, it taught me how buying leads works.
However, after testing the system for 6 months straight, I can’t recommend this program. My referrals, never responded to me.
They also never made money themselves. It’s just risky.
My Lead Gen Secret didn’t live up to their promises, and in many cases they were misleading.
I prefer to make money in a more stable and honest way.
Build my own website, use SEO, drive traffic to it, and make money.
It’s not as simple as it sounds, but a lot more stable than MLGS.
Either way, whatever you decide I wish you all the best.
