Sold Into Slavery by Ann Sieg?

Fallen for any great lies recently?

How about this one...

"Succeed At Network Marketing By Burning Your Names List, Ditching The Thursday Night Hotel Meetings And NEVER Paying For Another Opportunity Lead Again" - Ann Sieg (headline from her landing page)

How many Renegade students actually do this?

It's not hard to find out...

Ann's eBook and "system" is all about running your own Google AdWords ads to generate your own leads. Nothing new there - especially since you can learn about 1000 time more from her AdWords Guru Perry Marshall himself - only his book is available for $13 on Amazon.

The "key" as Ann says is to advertise her eBooks and use them to generate leads and even direct sales.

Is anyone actually doing this?

According to Ann, she has over 1000 people a month joining her system. Yet 99% of the ads running on Google are paid for by... (drum role please) Ann Sieg!

The following people provide testimonials on how great her system works...

  • Cyndi Williams - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Michael Lemm - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Dale Steward - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Christian Marquez - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Katherine Nyby - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Scott Rogers - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Sherry Higdon - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • McKay Earl - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Carrie Kearsle - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Alicia Bausley - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Nancy Christenson - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Patricia Kagwiria Makhulo - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)
  • Curt Johnson - Not on AdWords (10/01/2007)

Hmmm... so what's the deal?

The real deal is that Ann wants you to buy leads from her. When you purchase her eBook she sells your name to one of her associates for as much as $5.00. That's why you don't see them advertising her stuff!

One person even told me that they are forced to buy leads from her and that she will stop supporting them if the don't do exactly as she says - including spending thousands on leads.

And the payoff?

Ann's associates are forced to promote "Send Out Cards" to the leads they buy. They are essentially sold into slavery with the promise of easy riches.

Way to go!

All while we verified a post in this bolg from earlier this year...

Ann S. of Minnesota says, “I started implementing what I learned and you know what happened? I started being successful. Wildly successful. In just a little more than a year, I retired my husband from his airport job! And started consistently sponsoring no less than 20 people every month!” About this course she says, “This course How To Turn Cold Leads Into Hot Prospects gives you a start-to-finish 'blueprint' on how to get a pre-qualified lead to ask you for more information about your opportunity... how to automatically increase their interest level before you even talk to them... how you can naturally position yourself as an expert rather than a nuisance... and how to easily guide them to the close without any ridiculous mental 'tricks.'” found on www.NetworkMarketingTrainingSeries.com

So there you have it... the truth - or at least something closer to it.

- KW

PS - Look of a new course offered by Ann soon! You heard it here first.

With all due respect to whomever has written this blog, I beg to differ when it comes to the "facts" that have been presented here.

I am one of those names listed as being "sold into slavery", and I would like to clarify a few points.

Contrary to your report, I am indeed using Google Adwords to promote the Renegade System. (you say I'm not)

But, MORE IMPORTANTLY, I want to assure you that Ann's book and system teaches so much more than you have eluded to in this post.

While I am not interested in participating in any "mud-slinging," I definitely do want to stand up in Ann's defense.

I find it very unfortunate that you haven't presented the whole picture here. What I know from using and working the Renegade System personally, and what you are portraying here are two totally different things. The real truth has been slanted in this blog with a negative connotation.

As for Ann's students buying leads from her? Regardless of your implications, the truth is that I simply don't need them. I have literally generated thousands of my own leads through her system and my own marketing efforts.

I am a business person. Ann hasn't brain-washed me. I can certainly think for myself. (and do)

I have not been sold a bill of goods with hopes of "easy riches." That simply doesn't happen. Becoming successful takes hard work and an established skill set.

BUT using a methodical, systematic approach to generating your own leads and using systematic follow-up and follow-through is at the core of any good marketing and recruiting initiative.

I don't know what your personal reason for attempting sway people from purchasing Ann's book is. Why even bother? Allow people to purchase the book and decide for themselves if this is a viable option or not.

Who are we (you, me or anyone else) to think that we know what's best for another person? Especially a stranger on the internet that we don't even know? That's quite a heavy burden to bear...

I have more honorable things to do with my time. And I am sure you do to.

Cindi,

I would love to hear from others that used to be listed on Ann's team.

They were promised big riches by Ann - why have their video's been removed? Where are they?

Why are they starting to talk about what really happens in Ann land? (How mean she is, and that Ann is only your friend if she can get something out of you.)

This has nothing to do with the value of her eBook - though you'll find Perry's book for about $14. It's much better then anything Ann copied from it and costs less too.

The real issue is that if what Ann teaches in her eBook isn't even applied by her core team of insiders, how great it it really?

hmm one month later and still no one else has come out. Where have all of Ann's original "friends" gone?
