So when I do product reviews, I typically start them off with a report type analysis, where I give you a brief breakdown, the price, my personal point of view and so on. This time around, I don’t have this because I decided NOT to get the 6 Steps to Freedom program, because I saw a lot of things on the checkout page (as well as through other research) which made me worried about making the purchase. Let’s just make sure we’re talking about the same site, here’s how it looks:
While I am not giving 6 Steps to Freedom a bad score or even calling it a scam, my vast experience in exploring internet marketing products like this showed me that there’s numerous things to worry about with this particular program, so let me explain all of these things in a moment.
My main point and warning about this program:
Overall, my thesis is that this site is trying to get you to buy their program so they can up-sell you some sort of high ticket program behind it. I will explain why I believe this in a moment. I’ve seen these kinds of sales pages and I’ve seen that they play out the same way, consistently (buy at a low price, get pitched high priced stuff on the back end).
I also want to mention that in spite of these things I’ll list and my reason for not buying it, that you should still decide for yourself and explore other reviews of this program. I also want to explain that with every negative I found regarding this program, the #1 program I recommend to people is simply a complete, and positive opposite:
Now let me get into the things I saw that were questionable about 6 Steps to Freedom:
1) I found this program through a suspicious website called 9 to 5 Prison Break.
Why is it suspicious? Well because that site actually engages in red flag marketing such as hyping you up with get rich quick tactics, talks about a really fake discount that being if you buy it before the timer/open registration runs out, it goes from $997 to $49, which is a bogus claim, considering what happens when you click through.
Now I did click through and I was taken to a page where I officially discovered that I was being pitched the 6 Steps to Freedom package. This leads me to another negative I saw:
2) Too much confusion on what I am getting. But I do my best to break it down:
So here’s the flow:
-9 to 5 prison break takes me to…
-The 6 Steps to Freedom checkout page.
-They tell me for $49 I will get that program which includes a book called “New Money Playbook”. Doing a quick search on Google, I found that book on Amazon for about $5 so if anything, I’d get that book, there.
-With the overall $49 purchase, you also get access to a coach, a community and training to make money online I assume.
-But you need to purchase this to access all of this and get that other book in the mail.
3) This is clearly a program which is affiliated with a high ticket program of some sort. The chart below proves that:
I did look at the disclaimer, earnings report and so on. What troubled me here was that I saw a chart of revenue breakdowns of people who join this program and it made me assume that after I buy this stuff, I will be pitched a lot of expensive things:
Now most people don’t look at all the links, the privacy, the disclaimer, earnings, ect… but I do. It’s what gives me clues on what’s coming next and with this chart you see above, the clue I got was that I would pitched something really expensive once I made that $49 purchase.
I assume this because there is a common trend in internet marketing where people make up programs and sell you high ticket items on the back end and it happens CONSISTENTLY. Being that I’ve seen this play out time and time again, I’ve just developed my own warning signs and this above image shows me that.
Now this chart is actually not as informative as it looks, and I believe a lot of the real, accurate numbers are hidden as most of these figures are averages, not taking into account how much the people in this program paid in and how many made money. When averaged out, this chart is “bleached” and it makes it seem like everyone is making something, but that’s just not accurate. I strongly believe that chart above is hiding something very important.
I’ve seen these kinds of things in MLM programs and high ticket programs. They make it seem like everyone makes good money, when in fact, the more realistic thing is that a lot of people invest a lot of money, but most barely make anything. This chart shows the average made, but not the average INVESTED. I am sure if that was put into the chart, you’d see that not many people profit from this…
My overall conclusions on 6 steps to freedom:
I’m going to repeat what I said in the beginning, but I’m going to add to it because now that I’ve added more details on the info I found, the picture is more clear:
-I believe the person who made 9 to 5 prison break promotes 6 steps to freedom.
-Buying that program does give you some value, but ultimately, I think this whole thing leads you into another sales funnel that can become very expensive and the chart above shows me that.
-So my warning here is that this program is likely not going to end at $49 for a lot of people and there will be big up-sells following that purchase, including coaching calls.
-Typically my advice on these sorts of programs that play out this way is to stay away and I’m going to be following my own advice here on that.
Overall my conclusion is that there is too much risk in buying this program for the reasons I’ve described and it’s because of those risks that I decided not to go through with it. Believe me, I buy a lot of programs, but after seeing so many times how funnels like the one in 6 steps to freedom play out, I’m not willing to go through the hassle again.
