Do you ever get tired of the sleaze in our business?
February 5, 2010 by Sheryl J. Moore
That’s right- I asked it. Do you ever get tired of the sleaze in our business? You know what I am talking about- the guys advertising 12% commissions on annuities? You know who you are…
Well, I am sick of it. I hope that you are too. I spend more than 70% of my time cleaning-up these dirty deeds. You probably have lost more than one case because of negative media that arose from shady advertisements. My advocacy work on behalf of this industry now takes up more time that my three websites combined; just because of some shysters trying to get rich quick by praying on unsuspecting agents.
Take a look at the following ad that makes us look bad, as an example:
“MASSIVE” Annuity Commissions With NO Advertising!
I still have a hard time believing the how much my good friend [Name Withheld] has made using this amazingly easy and highly profitable new business revenue generating approach… So powerful in fact that he has personally used it to write over $556,000 in highly-suitable annuities per client consistently during the last four years.[Name Withheld] has used this to personally pocket $320,528 with as few as just 6 clients, and this was done while he was only “testing” the system. What’s more, he keeps earning crazy amounts of commissions while only working with his existing clientele.Check out the full story HERE:

While other agents and advisors struggle with outdated methods, [Name Withheld] has been *secretly* using this breakthrough approach to write mountains of highly-suitable business quickly and easily!
And now he’s decided to let ALL of his jealously guarded new business revenue generating *methods* out of the bag!
…His story is a real rags-to-riches one, and now it can be yours too! Mike is completely convinced that any agent or advisor can easily do this. Not only that, like you and me, [Name Withheld] doesn’t like to work too hard — and he doesn’t like to take any chances which is why he’s designed this approach to involve:
* No non-compliant stuff
* No seminars* No advertising* No direct mail* No marketing period
* Little capital … initially being on a tight budget, he didn’t want this costing a lot …so his approach is based on having around a $30 budget per client to get HUGE profits flowing fast.
* No waiting … he wanted quick commissionable profits within days or maybe a couple of weeks maximum. The technique he uses is proven and works fast!
And you can see exactly what I’m talking about by visiting an instant access website my good friend [Name Withheld] recently set up. The website explains everything in complete detail including how he personally pocketed $320,528 in new planning commissions during a real-life six-client case study using this amazingly profitable quick & easy approach!

Yours In Success,
[Other Name Withheld]
First of all, Mr. Other Name Withheld- your English is horrible! You make us look like a bunch of high-school graduates, bumbling around, barely able to draft communications to our clients. “No non-compliant stuff.” Really? That is classy.
Secondly, Mr. Other Name Withheld- you don’t have to put the “MASSIVE Annuity Commissions” part in 36-point font in your ad. We all see you out there with all of your ignorant glory.
Thirdly, Mr. Other Name Withheld- just get out of our market. I don’t even want to be associated with you. Do us all a favor and go start selling cars.
Come on, folks! Is this REALLY how we want to be portrayed in the annuity industry? I should hope not. Do YOU think it is an accurate portrayal of most of our business? No. Can you blame the media, however, for thinking that all of our products pay double-digit commissions in light of ads like this? I can’t. They are not the experts; they do not have access to the resources we have.
Do me a favor. Make all of our jobs easier. Quit advertising trash like this. It will benefit everyone in the long run.
