Round 6 – The Pros and Cons – MLSP vs WA
So here we are. We’ve made it through the first five rounds of this supposed ten round “Battle of the Best”. Throughout this fight (or should I say competitive match-up?) we’ve discovered how each system functions, how their support systems stand up, whether they’re “good, bad or ugly” overall, how their online communities function and which one would be the better choice for the beginner.
So let’s take it down to the mat and see how each really stacks up. Since I’ve covered quite a bit of information in the last several rounds, I’m going to shorten it up a bit here and list only 5 things for each program that I consider advantages and disadvantages. This is by no means an exhaustive list of pros and cons, but I’ll get to that in my next post.
My Lead System Pro (MLSP)
- Long standing company (founded in 2008)
- Solid, reliable system (no outright failures, but there are hiccups)
- Large, supportive and active community
- Customer support ticket system
- Intensive training in online marketing
- Elaborate back-end system interface (a little too much for most beginners)
- “Rock Star” mentality (not everyone wants to become a “celebrity” to make money online)
- Supposed “No Hype” training leads members to buy more products and/or coaching
- High monthly expense to become a Mastery Member (premium Access)
- System relies heavily on emotional and mindset manipulation
Wealthy Affiliate (WA)
- Long-standing company (Founded in 2005)
- Complete All-In-One system (log in one time to access all features, including websites)
- Large, supportive and active community (real-time access to online members in LIVE chat)
- Intensive Step-by-Step training (must verify completion of tasks before reaching higher levels)
- FREE Lifetime Starter Account, very reasonable monthly fee to become Premium Member
- Back-end system interface is simple but “crowded” (maybe too much on one screen, IMO)
- Members lacking experience have tendency to try and “teach” new members, ineffectively
- LIVE chat is sometimes hard to follow or keep-up with
- Lack of “file manager” for SiteRubix websites (3rd Party FTP software req’d to access site files)
- Member Ranking System can be abused by frivolous posting and answering of questions
Believe me you, I could go on and on about the various reasons one could love one or gripe about the other. Heeeeyyy! …now there’s a thought!
Since we’ll be heading down the homestretch after this round, and soon will be trying to determine a “winner” (though there may not be one), how about if rather than building up these lists of “likes and dislikes”, I’ll just spell it out in detail, by giving you my honest and uncensored opinion, based on my experiences with both systems.
What that means is this…. you’re in for a real treat in my next post…
Stay in your seats, it’s about to get bloody…
Short and Sweet today…See you on the next page…Round 7 here we come!
