Offered through No Competition Marketing, Direct Pay System is a marketing platform that also offers users a commission for referrals.
What is the product?
For all intents and purposes Direct Pay System is sold as a suite of marketing related products ranging from pre-written copy and emails to membership site solutions and even somewhat obscure methods of marketing, namely SMS messaging and written mail. These are described by No Competition Marketing as “high value products” and that they are designed to “help entrepreneurs become successful”. Really though this side of Direct Pay System seems to exist mainly to supplement the main purpose which is a considerable referral scheme. In fact, over the course of an hour long Webinar, Direct Pay System talks mostly about how you can make money through said scheme. Interestingly from what I have seen much of the aforementioned marketing products are geared towards selling Direct Pay System as a product as opposed to genuine marketing tools. With that in mind I shall now look at the set up for Direct Pay System which once again puts an emphasis on the resale aspect and referral commissions. There are 4 packages available, Lite, PRO, Platinum and Warrior Elite. Each of these provide you with differing levels of access to the marketing materials as well as determining what tiers you can resell.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
Direct Pay System is definitely on the pricey side with each package having a substantial initial cost as well as a monthly subscription fee. The Lite package is $397 upfront and $9.97 per month, the PRO package is $997 upfront and $19.97 per month, the Platinum package is $1,997 upfront and $29.97 per month and final the Elite Warrior is an eye watering $3,997 and $39.97 per month. It is worth keeping in mind that there is no money back guarantee or the like in place either. In terms of income, the only thing that is discussed (funnily enough) is how much you can make through the referral scheme with No Competition Marketing not even discussing any other income potential. In terms of the income from the referral scheme you get a 60% commission of whatever package that the person you introduced purchases as well as an additional 20% of any sign ups that they then get.
Does the product provide value for money?
Personally I don’t believe that Direct Pay System represents value for money in the slightest and personally I wouldn’t go near it.
Direct Pay System seems to be a rather sketchy proposition to me. There is no getting around the fact that the focus is very clearly on referrals and making money though this method and the fact is that this simply isn’t sustainable. Whilst there is technically a product in place it lacks any real tangibility and this is arguably the most worrying part. Whilst it isn’t quite a full on multi level marketing company it is clear that No Competition Marketing have studied the model and whilst laws say that a product must be in place to stop a multi level marketing scheme being a pyramid scheme, this is very loose. Personally I don’t see what benefit you get from Direct Pay System really other than an ability to try and recruit others and as such I would definitely avoid it.
