Brad Gaines & Todd Gross - calling themselves Marketing Experts - ultimate-lead-system.com - instantprofits.website

Facebook Marketing ManiaToday I have found a typical advertisement, which shows how you get lied and deceived if you believe to promotion. The advertisement offered the free eBook "Facebook Marketing Mania - Become The Next Marketing Media Mogul By Mastering Facebook Marketing". As it has been a give away, I have ordered it by using my email account from Google. A short time later I found the download link in the spam folder. It seems that Google knows the sender already very good :).

The eBook tries to explain on 24 pages (including cover picture, content directory,copyright notice) what is Facebook and how to turn your Facebook friends into leads by making a Facebook company page. With other words you'll find in the eBook nothing new or at least one idea, which you did not know by yourself already.

More interesting is the site from which you are downloading the eBook - http://bradgainesmarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Facebook-Marketing-Mania.pdf. Marketing experts should have a site, which is very well visited and have a good traffic ranking. One of the oldest independent traffic ranker is Alexa. I know from my different sites, that an Alexa global ranking of 200,000 equals to around 300 unique visitors a day and an Alexa global ranking of 1,200,000 is equal to around 15 unique visitors a month. If we compare this values with the global ranking of bradgainesmarketing.com, a 2 year old site, then we see, that this website is a big secret in the World Wide Web:

Alexa ranking of BradGainesMarketing.com

If we take a look at the domain registry data from the landing page bradgainesmarketing,com, then we see that the site is using a privacy protection service from Panama. This is something additional, which makes the domain more suspect then trustful. Together with the Alexa ranking we can see that they have no idea from marketing.

As bradgainesmarketing.com is only a landing page. The page leads to the two months old domain ultimate-lead-system.com. This domain is registered for our surprise to Brad Gaines. Maybe Brad Gaines from Brad Gaines Marketing has learned already in the two years that hiding his identity is not good for his business. Anyway let us take first a look at the global Alexa ranking from the ultimate-lead-system.com:

Alexa ranking of ultimate-lead-system.com

As the Alexa global ranking is a ranking over the last three months and the domain ultimate-lead-system.com is only two month old, the ranking can improve a little bit every day until the website is older then three month or the marketing and the promotion for the domain gets more professional.

The second website, which leads to ultimate-lead-system.com is instantprofits.website. There you'll find the same time waster video. This domain got created on January 17, 2015. At this time Brad Gaines did not know that a business will not be trustful by using a service for hiding the domain ownership. We see at the global Alexa ranking that the instantprofits.website domain is the biggest secret in the world wide web:

Summary: Which marketing tips can you expect from a "marketing company", which is not able to generate traffic and visitors for their own site? Why should you store and generate your leads on a system where the lead has to pay for it? If you are collecting your leads by yourself or using a free service, then you get more leads and more sales. The system does not really help you at the lead generation job. Pop-up blocker and script blocker (cross site scripting) will make more problems with the offered system then it can help you by managing your leads. The global rankings of the promoting sites are showing you already that the site owner does not understand anything from marketing. Which marketing tips can you get from such a site? If you invest the US$ 7 by inviting a friend to a beer, then you have more from your money.
