Two lines from the disclaimer (taken directly from the IM Leadership 2.0 sales letter) bear repeating: "Company has not investigated or substantiated any of the user comments or claims. Some of the users may, in some cases, been (sic) incentivized to submit their comments and company has not verified the figures quoted in them."
Kind of knocks the wind out of all of the testimonials, doesn't it? Wilke's sales letter for the Local Business Money Machine appears to be down at the moment, claiming that the registration is closed because all the spots are taken and that they are focused email list on helping "each of those people turn into amazing success stories" (that's a direct quote from the sales letter). The Bottom Line on the Local Online Marketing Opportunity What's really disappointing about products like Schwartz's IM Leadership 2.0 and Wilke's Local .
Business Money Machine is that they seemed to be designed to do nothing more than separate hard-earned money (price tags appear to be around the $1,000 and $2,000 levels, respectively) from well-meaning people in exchange for products that are so short on substance that they need loads of hype to generate interest in an opportunity that is fundamentally good - if not great. Good products that are designed to help people capitalize on an unmet demand do not need hype.
