Welcome to my Direct Mail Pro review. Some marketing opportunities are compliant with the law, whilst others ignore it. Is it a big deal? Well, it depends really. Maybe you want to make quick cash in which case Direct Mail Pro might be just what you are looking for. On the other hand, maybe you are building long term credibility which is hard to do if you promote illegal programs.

I am not going to get on my soapbox and bash this program. Instead I am going to call a spade a spade. At the end of the day you may need to promote something like Direct Mail Pro. Illegal programs are everywhere and many people make full time incomes, promoting them. At the same time though, you do limit your self by not taking the high road. If you are building a long term personal brand based on credibility, you probably should avoid non-compliant programs.

Is Direct Mail Pro a Legal Program?

Some people think that the FTC is a giant pain in the ass in which I do understand. If that is how you feel then, you will not care whether Direct Mail Pro is legal or illegal and you should probably join Direct Mail Pro. After all it is a hot new program which should have a buzz around it for at least the next year, so you could make some good money with it. People really love shiny new programs so you should find it easy to get sign ups.

However if you want to stick with legal programs, then Direct Mail Pro is not for you. I will tell you why. Direct Mail Pro is illegal, but it probably won’t get shut down…because it’s only a little bit illegal.

Direct Mail Pro is not a ponzi scam in my opinion so it won’t have a spectacular crash and will not really bother the authorities too much. Instead it will chug a long for a few years before slowly winding down to a complete stop. Really it’s just a compensation plan.

The FTC wants to see retail customers. A legit program will always have a healthy percentage of customers using the products. A customer uses the products without being bothered by attempting to make money with the opportunity. If the products have no value in the eyes of customers, you have a situation where the only people using the products are the same people promoting the opportunity and that is a big no-no according to the FTC.

According to the FTC, a program like this is a pyramid scheme and therefore is illegal. Maybe you think the FTC are idiots and that’s fine by me, I have no dog in this fight. I just wanted to point out that there is no way that Direct Mail Pro has retail customers and there is no way that it would be considered legal and compliant by the FTC. What you do with that knowledge is entirely up to you.

It’s EASIER To Make Money with Direct Mail Pro.

If you decide to stick with legal programs, you will find it a little harder to make money. You will need to create content that demonstrates value and establishes YOU as a trusted leader. This long and difficult path is not for everyone, however the rewards are great and long lasting if you can break through. Most people will need to take the shortcuts on offer by non compliant programs like Direct Mail Pro. For 98% of people, joining Direct Mail Pro will probably be a good idea. The 2% of you that have what it takes to build a personal brand should avoid Direct Mail Pro like the plague because it will destroy your credibility.

Ok, I am glad that I got that out of the way. It’s important to be real about what Direct Mail Pro is and what it is not, i.e a legit program. I will just review it and you can decide if Direct Mail Pro is worth promoting. If you prefer something more legitimate, maybe one of my legitimate ways to make money online might be a better fit. I do not promote, nor I am I affiliated with Direct Mail Pro.

Direct Mail Pro – Summary

Key Figures: Peter Wolfing

Product Type: Cash Gifting.

Summary: To earn you refer people to buy one of the “Business In A Box” packages. There are several levels to join at. You will earn 40% on level 1 and 20% on level 2. If your recruit joins at a higher level than you, you will only earn 40% on the level that you are at. The remainder will roll up to the first qualified person.

  • Amateur Level – $500.
  • Elite Level – $1,000.
  • Pro Level – $2,500.

See The Comp Plan Here.

This is not a legal or compliant program, however I am NOT saying you shouldn’t join. I personally would not join this.

Rating: C

Verdict: If you find online marketing difficult, then this might be a way to make some quick cash. But If you actually know how to build your personal brand, you will never need to join a program like Direct Mail Pro. It’s a bit too scammy, if I am perfectly honest.

Quick Navigation

What Is Direct Mail Pro?

Direct Mail Pro is basically a compensation plan with some products tacked on. They will have no retail customers, so technically this is an illegal program. It’s not really a big deal and it probably will not get shut down. It won’t really collapse either, it will sort of wind down slowly after a few years.

So “what’s in the boxes?”, I hear you ask.

Direct Mail Pro – Levels

The contents of the box will include:

  • A USB Flash Drive with Training (video and pdf)
  • A Ticket for a Live Event
  • Physical Marketing Material
  • Onboarding Material
  • Books and Magazines

The top 2 levels will apparently also have a laptop plus laptop bag.

Pricing

  • Amateur Level – $500.
  • Elite Level – $1,000.

What I Like About Direct Mail Pro

It Will Probably Last 3 Years Plus

Peter Wolfing has ran several of these cash gifting schemes which seem to last pretty long. The most popular one being Easy 1 Up which got very big and has been running successfully since 2016. I would say it’s starting to run out of steam, which is why Direct Mail Pro has been created. The point is that it should chug along nicely for several years

A New Spin On An Old Scheme

I quite like the idea of getting a box in the mail, particularly if it’s got a lap top in it. 98% of people bounce around from new program to new program and they no doubt will get very excited about Direct Mail Pro.

What I dislike about Direct Mail Pro

Kind Of Sleazy And Illegal

When I see people on youtube pushing cheezy pyramid schemes on youtube, I sort of lose respect for them. I mean we are all just trying to make money online, so I guess it shouldn’t bug me.  I just would feel a bit silly promoting this. It’s just a hangup that I have and I know that I am losing out on money because these programs are very easy to sell to people. I just need something that has products that stand alone without a comp plan. Generally if I can see retail customers really getting value, then I will look at the comp plan. Direct Mail will have virtually zero retail customers.

The Real Deal With Direct Mail Pro

If you are looking for quick and easy cash then you should probably join Direct Mail Pro. To really succeed in online marketing long term you need spend a couple of years building your brand. That is just not going to happen for most people, but if you do it, you never have to join a cash gifting scheme like Direct Mail Pro. This program may be one of your only options to make money online.

Verdict

Perfect for some, too shady for others, I give it a C.
