Review: Making Money as a UK Product Developer
Pick up the Mail on Sunday or Sunday Times Business Opportunity classifieds and you’ll have seen the headline: “COPY THIS IDEA, £1.02 MILLION”.
The product this ad is selling is a series of videos showing you how to become a product developer. They’re produced by Andrew Reynolds of Manhattan Direct, and marketed by Tim Lowe of a company called Markiteer.
In a nutshell, a product developer hunts down potentially big selling courses, videos, seminars, programmes and books… then works out a variety of ways to flog ’em.
You know the drill… classifieds, direct mail, google ads, websites, affiliate deals…
Sure, it’s a workable way of making money. But if you think you’re going to become Alan Sugar overnight, then you’re barking up the wrong tree. You need at least £1,000 handy to test your first products and it will take time to get started.
When you send off your £49.95 you get 3 videos, a CD and a guide book.
The CD is full of motivational chat, if you like that kind of thing. (Unless it’s BRILLIANT, then I don’t particularly.)
In the videos, Bill Myers shares his expert knowledge in lots of detail. He’s a likeable bloke so you won’t mind spending time with him on your telly.
This is an entry level product. Expect a lot more offers for things like videos and seminars that cost several grand. You’re also going to need some further marketing knowledge to make this business work that you WON’T find in the course.
That said, there’s a full refund if you’re not 100% happy, so it’s certainly worth looking into.
