In this Send Out Cards Review, I will be examining this company, the products and services that they provide, as well as their MLM Business opportunity.

Does Send Out Cards offer a legitimate MLM Business opportunity, or is this a scam or pyramid scheme that should be avoided?  This is my unbiased Send Out Cards Review.

Company Details & History

The cost of getting started

To get started as a customer of Send Out Cards, there are two options to choose from:

1. Become a Retail Customer

Send Out Cards MLM Business imageDepending on your individual needs, there are 4 Packages to choose from:

  • Pay As You Go
  • $49 Retail Package
  • $99 Retail Package Plus
  • $199 Preferred Package

The pay as you go option is for those who only occasionally send cards.  These customers can send a two-panel card for $2.99 with postage included.

Of course, purchasing their Preferred Package will deliver the most value as a Retail Customer.

2. Become a Wholesale User

This option is best for those who frequently send cards, as this will provide you with the most value for your buck.  Wholesale users have access to all of the benefits, perks, and tools that Send Out Cards provides.

  • The Wholesale Premium Package is $398.

To become a Send Out Cards Independent Distributor, you will need to purchase their Wholesale Premium Package for $398, plus add their Entrepreneur Distributor Kit for an Annual Fee of $59.

This Entrepreneur Kit will provide you with business materials, marketing supplies, personal website, as well as your qualification to earn retail profits, bonuses, and commissions as you share Send Out Cards with others.

Send Out Cards Review Conclusion

In my opinion after conducting this Send Out Cards Review, Send Out Cards is a very legitimate opportunity, and is not a scam.  I have conducted many MLM company reviews, and I can honestly say that Send Out Cards is one of my favorite MLM businesses.  I believe that they offer a fantastic service at an incredible price, and I have no doubts that they will achieve their goal of becoming a Billion Dollar company in the upcoming years.

Food for thought…

The one thing that I might add is this: The traditional Network Marketing methods of prospecting among friends and family members will still apply in building this business, as these will be the methods that will be trained and encouraged as a new Distributor.

You will contact your friends and relatives to promote the Retail and Wholesale packages that I have listed above.  You will recruit those who express an interest in becoming a SOC Distributor in your organization.

While these Warm Marketing methods can work for some, if you are able to bring a more modern and effective marketing strategy to the table, I believe that the Send Out Cards opportunity will become that much stronger, and the greater your chances of success will become.

    This isn’t an unbiased review, it’s a sales pitch.

      Hi Anna,

      I appreciate your opinion! But no, this is not a sales pitch. I am not a Distributor for Send Out Cards or any other company that I review on Marketing Methods Online, nor was I compensated in any way to write this review. I truly like the concept of Send Out Cards and this probably shows through in my review. I apologize if this makes it appear that I work for SOC in any way.

      Regards,

      Dave F.

    The product is a great concept, but the company doesn’t make money on the product. It’s aimed at suckers willing to pay the startup cost. Like ALL MLM schemes, you can only make money if you’re one of the top couple of levels. In this case, 69% of distributors made no money at all, but they each paid the $457 startup cost. I’m sure they will become a billion-dollar company, but from the distributors, not the service or product. http://www.almightydad.com/seo-sem/send-out-cards-youve-been-had
