In my search for Baby Boomer internet opportunities, I came across a website called Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough. Through a promotional video, I was introduced to Chris and Susan Beesley, a nice couple from the UK.
I watched the video that highlighted all of their travels around the world as they live a life that most of us would only dream about.
One question kept going through my mind as I watched the video…. Is this a scam?
What I Found
This is the 26-minute promotional video that I watched. You don’t have to watch the whole video but if you scan through it, you will see why I was questioning its legitimacy.
In the video, they offered to reveal their system for $49. In addition to that, they were going to throw in a free gift that is worth $197.
Okay, that sounds reasonable.
There was a push in the video to act right away because they said that the offer was for a limited time only. That heightened my scam radar so I looked through their website a bit more and read this:
Proceed With Caution
The Web page said the same thing as the video. They are creating the urgency to sign up right away. Now that doesn’t mean that it is a scam but it was making me a tad bit nervous to pay $49.
So back to a bit more research.
I found out that Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough is actually a funnel page of Chris and Susan’s that leads a visitor to MOBE.
My Online Business Education
MOBE (My Online Business Education) is owned by Matt Lloyd. MOBE is a business that teaches people how to earn money on the internet. The unfortunate thing is that the cost to the members gets incrementally higher as the member goes through the different mastermind levels.
The levels are :
The cost for each level of personal coaching is as follows:
- Silver – $2497
- Gold – $5000
- Titanium – $10,000
- Platinum – $16,667
- Diamond – $30,000
That’s A Lot Of Money
Here is a video where Matt Lloyd explains what MOBE is.
Okay, Still legitimate but the fact remains. It is too pricey.
After reviewing the MOBE video, I started to research what it would entail to just promote MOBE as an affiliate to earn some commission.
This is what I found:
For the opportunity to promote MOBE as an affiliate, it would cost a person $19.95 per month (After the initial $49 of course). This was surprising to me as what I have observed, most affiliate programs are free to join.
So after all that, here is my review on Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough (a funnel of MOBE)
- Name: Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough
- Website: ultimateretirementbreakthrough.com
- Price: $49 and then upsells ranging from $2497 to $30,000
- Overall Rank: 80 out of 100
- Owners: Chris and Susan Beesley
- Verdict: Legitimate
Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough is not a scam. However, the upsell that happens once someone becomes a member is for the most part, way out of the financial reach for most people. This is why I have given Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough an overall rank of 80 out of 100.
I believe that Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough would be a good program for established affiliate marketers who have been in the business for a while and have some major disposable income.
There Is A Better Alternative
For something that is more reasonably priced, I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate instead of Ultimate Retirement Breakthrough. With Wealthy Affiliate, you can sign up as a free member and if you do decide to upgrade, you will not be paying thousands of dollars.
