As a lover and learner or Internet marketing, copyrighting, and the likes, there are things that you come across that is time tested and industry accepted practices. One of them is using key words that will get a browser or researcher to click on a link or article of a particular subject. One of the many top tactics is putting the word “SCAM” along the with the subject. For example, my headline, “Eclipse Candle Company a Scam?” Someone looking into this subject matter is most likely looking to see if 1). Eclipse is a potential ally or threat in the future as far as a business, 2) Looking to join Eclipse and wondering if it is a scam, or 3) Looking to grow their Eclipse business, wondering why it hasn’t grown by now and what can they do about it.
The latest article I read is by a guy names Clint and can be found here: http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/scam?before=1333114160
As you will see, if you read the article, they will never say that Eclipse is one or the other – a scam or not. Why would someone write up that headline? They do it to attract eyes and readers. We, as readers, are pulled in by certain words and once you are pulled in, you are a prospective customer to what they are offering you. You will not only see is that they are spewing out content about Eclipse Candle Company that can be easily found on the Company’s website but along with this would be a service or product that the author/marketer is selling. Clint, in this case, is selling a lead generation package. Sign up or buy with him and you will know how to generate leads to your Eclipse Candle Company. Yep, really.
I have nothing to sell and nothing to gain. But what I have is this: Eclipse Candle Company is not a scam. I even said so as a comment on Clint’s ‘Scam article” on Eclipse Candle Company but the comments need to be approved. I do not know if he will so I post it here, in my blog and on my site:
Speaking from someone who already is a Founding Member of Eclipse Candle Company, another way to qualify for a company lead is to be a qualifying Glow Team Leader of the previous month: That is $500 in PRS (Personal Retail Sales) with 1 sponsored person under who sold $125 or more the previous month. When someone signs up or finds out about Eclipse and does not have an Eclipse Representative already, that contact is given to a qualifying Glow Team Leader.
These leads can even be the person reading this article right now, wondering if Eclipse is a scam. This article, you opened up because of the word “scam” – one of the magic words in headlines and copy writing.
This is like the 10th article with ‘Eclipse’ and ‘Scam’ together in the headlines and none of them have said it is because it isn’t =) But the headlines will continue so you will click on it and read. Truth be told.
How would you know if Eclipse is a scam or not? You don’t. There are people who will assume so and they may as well continue to think so. I can write forever to counter these “scam” reports on the company I am a part of but those convinced against their will are of the same opinion still. But to those really wanting to know researching if it is a scam, feel free to call the company. Listen in on the recorded phone calls, watch the YouTube videos, keep Googling. If you still have doubt, drop me a line or a comment. And to get a lead, do not pay for a lead generation system. His listed tips do help in finding leads. I have had people find my blog and signed with my Eclipse Team, but the best way for leads is for you to be a likeable person. As I always say, people will do business with people they like…. so….. be likeable!
