5iphon says that you can build your email list pretty much on auto pilot with their free system. That sounds like a good deal to those that have been wanting to build up their list, but didn’t know how or don’t want to put the work in to get the results. But what kind of leads are they talking about, and is it really free?
The name is pronounced like siphon but just spelled with a 5 instead of an s to brand itself. The 5 comes from the model that gives you the first five leads that are generated once you get into the system. In this respect it kind of works like a chain email, where your email is given to an affiliate and then your get entered in so that one day people are submitting their email address to you.
5iphon claims that the system is free and that it works to build up your email without you really doing anything. We’re always leery about programs that claim minimal effort on the part of the user. That’s basically a big ploy to get people to buy that are perhaps too busy to run an online marketing business in their spare time, or who are still sold on the idea that you can make big bucks without doing anything. So be sure to look past these sorts of claims so that you can make a proper evaluation on this, and see if there’s some meat to it.
If there’s any hype surrounding this it’s from the affiliates that are going to say it’s the best thing since sliced bread in an effort to get you to submit your email address under them so they’ll get a commission on your sale if you end up buying it. Aside from that there’s not a slew of people to be found that are claiming to have made a fortune with this, or that have found success by marketing to the list they created with this system.
Of course nothing in life is truly free, and there is a premium membership that the makers of 5iphon are hoping that you’ll sign on for. This is $40 for the first month, and then $20 each consecutive month. It’s sold through ClickBank so you don’t have to worry about being charged for it if you don’t like it, or don’t see results. You’ll have a full 60 days to evaluate it, and that even includes the first $20 charge for the second month of membership.
Like with any online marketing strategy that claims it’s hands-free and on autopilot, there will be some initial work involved to set everything up. And the longer you stick around in this business, the more you’ll realize that this is just a ruse to attract the most number of people. If you want to get serious about making this your business, you’ll have to put the time in just like all of the other successful marketers out there. There’s just no free lunch.
5iphon sounds interesting, like most money-making programs do, but you have to get down into the details to decide if this is something that will be viable for you and your personal situation. The saying that “the money is in the list” is a bit inaccurate. The money is in the right list. If you’ve got a bad list that doesn’t listen to what you say, or doesn’t really know who you are and doesn’t trust you, you’re not going to get very far, and there’s not much value in that list.
Everyone says that the money is in the list, and if you ask most wannabe Internet marketers if it’s hard or easy to build a list they’ll say it’s hard. But most of them have never tried to do it, and have only dabbled in it. The best way to build a happy and responsive list is to start blogging about a subject you know about, and provide a ton of content for free to users. Then offer them a downloadable PDF or a video with even more great content on it and ask for their email in return. They’ll trust you as an authority and be more willing to buy the products and services you recommend.
Final 5iphon Review
On a technical level, 5iphon should work, the same way that a chain letter works. The only question is the quality of the list that this will build for you, and how responsive that list will be to your marketing efforts. The free list that you build, if it’s built at all, will likely not be too good. You might have better luck going with their paid upgrade, or you might want to look into other ways to build up a list, like starting a niche blog and providing valuable content for free.
It’s free to get started with this, and as long as you know that they’re trying to sell you something and aren’t trying to make you rich for free, there’s no harm in trying it out. Even if you decide to take it up a notch with their paid program, you’re still protected by a 60 day guarantee, so you’re not risking anything financially. The only real risk is opportunity cost and spending your time on it, when there may be a better money-making opportunity that you’re not exploring.
