When you first hear about storesonline its usually because they sent you an invite in the mail. This invite offers you a free lunch and MP3 player if you come to see a seminar or conference about starting a business online. But what is storesonline, what do they offer and can they help you start a successful business online? Lets find out a little about the company.
What Storesonline Is And What They Offer
Without beating around the bush, storesonline offers to start websites with you and teach you how to promote them online. You can start a site (they recommend 6) that promotes a business you have or start a new online business from scratch. They have site building experience and can coach you how to bring traffic to your site that wants to buy what you have. That is the idea at least.
The Storesonline Seminar And Conference
What are the storesonline conferences and seminars for. Well, it starts out with the seminar, which is what the person is invited to in the mailer invitation. Once you go to the seminar and get your free lunch and MP3 player, most people are convinced to buy a $50 software that will help start building your online business. The software will then be explained at the upcoming conference where you will be offered the almost $7000 package. So, you start out getting free stuff, or teasers, at the seminar and then are pressured into buying a $7000 package at the conference. The conferences are basically a way of getting people together, getting everyone excited about starting a business and feeding of the energy to make sales. People see everyone else buying the package and they don’t want to be left behind.
While storesonline isn’t really a scam or fraud I would consider it a rip off. There are many other ways to start a business online that cost considerably less. Also, the customer service with storesonline has had complaints of being very poor and unresponsive not to mention numerous complaints to the BBB.
If you are looking for a way to start a business online make sure you do your homework. There are many resources out there. But the most important thing to look for is solid continual mentorship. Starting a business that you are unfamiliar with takes training and if you don’t get it your online business will struggle. Make sure you are comfortable with the person you are talking with about starting your new business, are not being pressured to buy anything and that they are using the same online marketing methods to promote a successful business of their own.
