Mark Barrett and Jenelle Livet are offering you plenty of money through an Internet Marketing system they call Geared for Profits. They claim the system requires you to work for less than one hour per day and gain $100 for every $5 you invest. Furthermore, they claim that the method is newbie friendly and lets you scale your income by repeating the process. They claim that it works in any niche, doesn’t require product creation, doesn’t require a massive budget, and doesn’t require recruiting affiliates. Their most suspicious claim is that you can make money with it today. Let’s see how true these claims are.
I’m not marketing Mark Barrett’s and Jenelle Livet’s Geared for Profits as an affiliate. What you’re about to read is only an objective review of the product, intended to provide useful information for my reading audience.
Here’s a condensed version if you don’t have time to read the whole review: Mark Barrett’s and Jenelle Livet’s Geared for Profits is legitimate training on how to make money online, but there are hitches that might lead to disappointment. If you’re a brand new marketer, you’re going to have a hard time trying to make money with it because you are not effectively shown how to drive free traffic. The training focuses on paid traffic through social media, such as Facebook ads.
The problem is that a Facebook ad can fall flat on its face. It’s entirely possible for you to be in profit if your ads convert to sales, but if they don’t, you lose money. And there’s no way of guaranteeing that your ads will convert. Secondly, if you’re looking to get $100 for every $5 you invest, you’ll be disappointed. The details are in the main body of the review.
Right after I checked out I was asked to check out some more of Mark Barrett’s and Jenelle Livet’s products, which were presented as upsells and down sells. I passed them all up and got to the product I paid for.
Just to give you a backdrop, Geared for Profits is built around Gearbubble, which is an eCommerce website that allows users to sell stuff like mugs, t-shirts, necklaces etc. with custom graphic designs. Mark Barrett and Jenelle Livet promised on their sales page that they would show you a way of making $100 by investing $5 on the Gearbubble platform.
But in reality, you’ll have to invest more than $5 because apart from the amounts of money you’ll invest in driving paid traffic, you’ll have to pay someone to do some professional graphic designs for the items you plan on selling. The $5 budget will be swallowed up by the cost of the graphic design alone, because on a freelance platform like Fiverr.com, the simplest designs are made for $5.
What Mark Barrett and Jenelle Livet are presenting to their potential customers is free information on the Gearbubble website. All you have to do is sign up for a free account on Gearbubble and confirm your account through email. After your account is confirmed, you’ll be granted access to the Gearbubble dashboard. The dashboard will provide you with instructions.
Follow the instructions and access the tutorial videos. On that dashboard, you can have access to more tutorial videos on how to sell physical items than you have on Mark’s and Jenelle’s Geared for Profits training. Furthermore, the tutorial videos on the Gearbubble dashboard are more elaborate than the ones in Mark’s and Jenelle’s training.
Mark Barrett and Jenelle Livet claimed on their sales page that their potential customers could start making sales on their first day of applying the training. That possibility can’t be ruled out completely, but it can’t be guaranteed either. That’s because there’s no way of telling whether your audience will buy. You list a great product and send an influx of paid or free traffic its way, but you can’t make folks click and check out. Jenelle focused mostly on Facebook ads to drive traffic. Facebook ads have been known to fail woefully in a lot of cases.
In her presentation, Jenelle showed her audience how to get images on Google to design their items if they didn’t want a professional to do the designing for a fee. She also warned about the possibility of getting in trouble with the law by using randomly picked copyright protected images on Google. But she didn’t show her viewers how to tell copyright protected images from free images. That leaves her students groping in the dark in a minefield.
Mark and Jenelle claimed that the methods in their Geared for Profits training could be applied to other niches – but I didn’t see how. Gearbubble is a platform where physical products like coffee mugs, t-shirts, baseball hats, bracelets and such are sold. How could such a platform apply to the dating niche or the weight loss niche, for instance?
The only way Gearbubble could apply to the two niches mentioned above would be by something called bridge marketing, which is an Internet Marketing method that cleverly connects two niches by introducing a relevant product from one niche to people in another niche.
For instance, folks could sell t-shirts with love-related inscriptions and designs on the Gearbubble platform to people in the relationship niche on Valentine’s Day. But the problem with bridge marketing is that many folks, including many of Jenelle’s viewers, aren’t aware of it. And her training doesn’t cover it.
Every internet marketer knows how crucial traffic is in determining success or failure. Efficient traffic driving wasn’t a strong point of Jenelle’s training. She focused mostly on paid traffic methods such as Facebook ads, which aren’t guaranteed to result in clicks and sales. Furthermore, she only skimmed through free traffic methods. That means if you list items for sale on the Gearbubble platform following Jenelle’s training, your items might sit in your inventory for a long time.
Jenelle seemed to be a soft-spoken woman who was sometimes inaudible. So if your background isn’t quiet enough, you’ll need a headset or earphones to hear what she says. Sometimes she even scrolled and clicked around in total silence, leaving her viewers clueless.
Mark Barrett’s and Jenelle Livet’s Geared for Profits is a legitimate Internet Marketing training product with some problems. One of the problems is that it doesn’t show you how to efficiently drive free traffic to your offers. Next, you’ll probably invest more than $5 to be in profit, which is contrary to the claim on the sales page. The other problem is that, contrary to what the sales page would have you believe, there’s no ironclad guarantee you’ll make money with it on your first day.
