There's no shortage of people who rave about 12DailyPro and there's an even greater number of people who are either skeptical or 100% certain there's "no way" it can work. The latter are convinced there is no possibility other than it being a ponzi scheme.
Admittedly, at a glance, it certainly seems like the latter are correct. I mean who the heck can pay out "12% per day" and keep it up indefinitely? Well, welcome to the world of marketing folks. If you're here, you're here to learn, so do your best to keep an open mind.
I'm not asking you, or anyone else, to believe that 12DailyPro was NOT a ponzi, or that it was even sustainable long term. Instead, what I'm asking you to do is to LEARN from the ideas I'm about to present to you. This is to help you think in new ways, to think analytically, rather than
like a native who thinks that this "fire" must be from "the gods.
Point #1 - Earn 12% Per Day.
It's been said before: They pay 12% on your principle, BUT they TAKE your principle from the start and you don't get it back. You only get the 12% earnings per day back which comes out to something like 3.6% per day PROFIT. Subtract Stormpay fees and the time from Day 12 to Day 17 (or 19) when your returns are "pending" and it comes out to something like 2.32%. So 12DailyPro is only on the hook for 3.6% per day.
Point #2 - They Don't GIVE 12% Per Day. It Must Be Earned.
With 350,000 people in the program, don't underestimate the amount of people who either FORGET to do their daily surfing, or go away and don't have a computer to use, etc. There can be any number of reasons why a person doesn't autosurf on a given day and all mean that 12DailyPro is not always paying out to the max.
Point #3 - They Sell Advertising.
Even I was about to purchase some. Let's see...350,000 PROVEN BIG SPENDERS....PROVEN AFFILIATES.... TRAINED TO WATCH ADS EVERYDAY. Hmmmm, how much would you pay to get at a list like that? Forget lazy thinking, "But that's AUTOSURFING, it's the WORSE kind of advertising. People can just run it then walk away. True, but I don't. When I sit down to use my computer, I'm sitting down to use my computer, period. So I start the autosurf and then go about my business answering emails, etc. Every time a new ad shows, it pops to the top screen and I actually see it. Out of 350,000 people, I'm confident a lot of others are seeing it. And as I said above, we are a 350,000 strong list of big money spenders who know how to get referrals and are trained to watch ads everyday.
Point #4 - Some People Just Can't Follow the Rules.
Some people just aren't happy making $2300+ profit every 12 days. So they try to open up multiple accounts which is against Terms of Service and eventually they lose their investment. If they are willing to break the rules, it's due to greed, and that greed never lets them cash out early...they are usually LET IT RIDE type people. Anyways, when those people get caught, they lose their accounts, end of story. If just 100 people out of 350,000 get caught with $12,000 each month, that's $1,200,000/month 12DailyPro has extra to fulfill their obligations.
Point #5 - Venture Capital.
If a company such as 12DailyPro had begun, theoretically, with $2,000,000 venture capital (perhaps they get it from fleeing other failed ventures, who knows) and that money is invested in medium risk investments, that can help fund any shortcomings in the earliest days. When you think about it, a company like 12DailyPro could, theoretically, operate at a loss of $50,000 per month for 40 months with that kind of capital. Or at a loss of $100,000 per month for 20 months...theoretically of course. I'm just giving you something to think about.
NOW, If that weren't enough....
While I think it COULD be enough if advertising sales were strong and it was managed very well, but as I see it, there would be almost no margin of error. It would be like dancing on the edge of a blade and even a slight error could send it toppling. So then what would make it super-incredible sustainable even after, let's postulate, operating at a loss of $50,000/mo for 10 months, but having developed a HUNGRY list of 350,000 LOYAL, BIG-SPENDING, AFFILIATE AD-WATCHERS? What would make this not only WORK, but explode into a barely conceivable amount of growth and money....?
Point #6 - Make It All Private and Unveil a PHASE TWO.
Phase 1, "Earn 12% per day" becomes private. Those already in get to continue doing the same - even possibly at a lesser, but still acceptable percentage like 8% per day. Since payments were always on time and 8% is still an unrivalled return then few, if any, would complain. But now all of those "CHARTER MEMBERS" are ACTIVATED....they are turned into an ACTIVE sales force of 350,000 people.
I keep emphasizing that these 350k+ people have shown a propensity towards big spending, towards risky behavior, towards getting others to sign up, and towards watching ads for their reward. Just imagine offering such a group 40%-50% commission for any referrals to PHASE 2 advertising packages.
And just who do you think will be watching those ads? THE CHARTER MEMBERS. And maybe the non-charter members who buy advertising through PHASE 2 will be offered a DISCOUNT on their ad package if they just watch 12 ads per day. Are you getting this now.
Quite often we act shocked or surprised when things turn out other than expected. To buffer the shock, the easiest thing is to blame or lash out at someone. It requires more effort to reflect and certainly not everyone even knows how, or that there is such a thing as reflection. Just pleasure, pain...suffer, blame. But we can try things like looking to nature for answers and solutions to our confusion and problems.
In this case, I pondered the transformation of a butterfly. In many cases, companies like 12DailyPro are not intrinsically evil or deceptive. They just fail to build a proper cocoon and so the transformation never takes place.
Just something to think about... :-)
