My Short Lucrazon Global Review
Out of the gate the biggest Lucrazon Global Complaints that I found were people getting cheated out of commissions that they were entitled to. This is a big deal and we will get to that part in more detail below. Lucrazon Global offers eCommerce websites to individuals that are seeking to open an online store. The business is relatively young at just shy of two years old. It’s owned by Alex Pitt. Essentially, they offer traditional retail stores the ability to have an online presence that allows them to sell their products and take payments.
How Does Lucrazon Global Work
The short answer is that people who want an eCommerce version of their in-person shop sign up and pay money. They also offer those who use their service the option of becoming a “Brand Partner” in an effort to earn additional income. This is where they are being accused of cheating people out of commissions and I will explain what happened in a minute.
- The start-up cost is relatively affordable. When people start a business, they often include start-up costs including the costs for an eCommerce system. Even for those who did not get advanced funding for their business, the set-up fee is relatively easy to put together in a short amount of time for a set-up fee.
- The monthly fee at $50 per month is affordable for most businesses.
- They also offer websites for people who wish to simply drop ship items that they sell.
- This is what the Lucrazon Global complaints are all about. Lucrazon Global offers something called Brand Partners where you pay $1’000.00 to qualify for bonus payments from referrals. People that signed up for this and paid their $1’000.00 qualification fee never received their commission payments for referrals that signed up. The outcome of this was there were class action lawsuits initiated against Lucrazon Global.
- Lucrazon Global offers other products besides eCommerce sites. At the bottom of their page, you can see a list of products that they state that they offer to entrepreneurs, small businesses, and essentially anyone looking to sell their goods or services online. However, when you click those links there is absolutely no information available for them despite the links being live.
- Their Events & Training page has not been updated in almost a year. If you’re considering Lucrazon Global, you should really ask yourself if you can trust the support of a company that doesn’t maintain its own website with timely information.
- There are other eCommerce websites available that can get entrepreneurs and small businesses up and running online for less upfront cost and with better support.
- Lucrazon also requires a background check. This is something I’ve never heard of in the online business world. Why does an online company need access to your personal background information?
Who It is For
Lucrazon Global targets entrepreneurs and small retail businesses that have goods or services that they would like to sell online. Like other eCommerce sites, the goal is to lull the potential client into a sense that they can grow their profit and extend their offerings to a wider audience because they are online. There is a background and a credit check required in order to use their services. I’m scratching my head!
They offer two base packages. The first package has a set-up fee of $500 and has a monthly price tag of $50. This particular site is designed for people who may be interested in drop shipping or who don’t want to carry their own inventory.
The second package has a set-up fee of $250 and has the same monthly price tag of $50. This package is marketed toward those who have their own products or inventory. It is supposed to put them online and allow them to sell their inventory and have customized content for the site. Both packages require a signed contract. The packages are said to have marketing tools in addition to giving those who purchase them a professional online appearance with easy customer use.
Those who sign up as a Brand Partner still pay for their site. They are also given an additional site to promote. The goal is to earn more money based on referrals. Brand Partners are supposed to receive part of the initial set-up fee for customers they bring in. They are also entitled to small monthly commission on those customers. They can also sign up others who are only interested in becoming a Brand Partner and receive commissions for that too. “GOOD LUCK GETTING YOUR COMMISSIONS AS A BRAND PARTNER”
Tools & Training
There’s not much to say about their training. The training portion of their page hasn’t been updated since May of 2014. They state that they do offer training tools. However, do you want to rely on a company that doesn’t keep their website updated or tell you about the other services they say that they offer?
Lucrazon Global has a section on setting up social media sites. They claim that social media sites are very important in today’s market and without sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and YouTube you will be left out. This is true!
The thing is anyone can set up a social media account without a lot of training. The training part of social media is in how to use the accounts, and this is what Lucrazon Global doesn’t teach. There is a lot that has to go into building and marketing your social media sites after they are set up and it’s ridiculous to think that just buy adding a plugin you’re all set up any ready to rock and roll.
Google Adwords is a whole training course in itself. Why they wound mislead you with a short little half of a sentence that says “Pay-Per -Click Advertising and more“ is beyond me. I studied Pay Per Click for years and I can tell you that Pay Per Click advertising is not something you want to get involved with unless you know what you’re doing. People that don’t know what they’re doing end up loosing money, not making money. And you can loose a lot of money very quickly.
When they lay out their search Engine Optimization in a way that leads people to believe that it’s all done for you with easy to control Meta Tittles, Meta Descriptions and Keywords for every page, I have to blink twice just to make sure what I’m reading is the real thing. Most people don’t even know what those terms mean and after signing up for this program they will be lost. Without any support! After paying their money! This is what pisses me off about these programs! They are misleading people into believing it will be easy.
The two most important things needed to become successful online are good training and good support. It’s true that anyone who has a desire can start an online store or business today and become successful at it. The problem is their are so many start ups out there that are leading you in the wrong direction and people that don’t know any better are easy prey for these companies. Below are my examples of advertising by Lucrazon Global that misleads people into believing they have all bases covered for you. They are telling you that they take care of the Social Media aspect of your business along with on-page SEO, Pay Per Click Advertising and more.
This is absolutely a bunch of BS. There is no way they are taking care of this part of your marketing. If you put these very important aspects of marketing in the hands of someone else without having at-least a minimal amount of education and knowledge in the areas of Social Media Marketing, On-page SEO and Pay Per Click Advertising you will be committing marketing suicide and paying for it.
Please Do Yourself A Favor And Check This Out!
The most important part of social media marketing is learning how to use your Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and what ever other social media sites you decide will be part of your marketing strategy to market your products and drive more traffic into your website. Don’t count on Lucrazon Global for this kind of in depth training because you won’t get it.
You can view an article that I wrote on how to build effective social marketing strategy and how to gain twitter followers by the thousands. This gets into the nuts and bolts of what social media marketing is all about.
Lucrazon Global doesn’t even have a training program that teaches marketing. All they’re concerned about is getting people to sign up to their eCommerce program. You can have the prettiest website on the internet but the most important part of building any kind of online business is marketing and without good training for online marketing I don’t care how pretty your website is, you’re doomed to failure.
Lucrazon Global Customer Service & Support
If you were signing people up as a Brand Partner, it would be incredibly important that you understand exactly what you are selling because you would be the first person that people ask if there are questions. As stated earlier in this review, the tools and training for Lucrazon Global are lacking. They do offer some videos in order to attempt to train new users in addition to the standard downloads and guides. Their contact information is listed under their support tab. They are located in California and they do not list office hours or how long it may take for you to receive a response.
This is not the kind of customer service and support that I would be looking for. Good support is being able to ask questions and get answers now. This kind of support comes from having a community of like minded people that you can talk to any time you wish through a chat room or message boards. The ideal support is being able to contact the owners anytime you need to. This is exactly the kind of support you will find at Wealthy Affiliate.
Lucrazon Global Payment Plan
- $500.00 set up fee & $50.00 per month
- $250.00 set up fee & $50.00 per month
- Brand Partners pay $1’000.00 qualification free
The price will depend on the package that is chosen. You will pay more if you don’t plan to offer your own products. Either way, you will still be out of pocket $50 per month with your contract.
My Final Opinion
This is not a viable eCommerce solution or business opportunity. As an eCommerce website provider, the site and information are lacking. It’s never a good thing when a company has a class action suit filed against them in order to recoup money that should have been paid out. The lack of information available to learn how to easily use your site is also a problem. They don’t list their office hours or even an idea of time in which you might expect a reply.
Additionally, there are other eCommerce solutions available that are less expensive and more reputable than Lucrazon Global. For instance, Shopify offers packages for as low as $29 per month. They also offer many different free options for your site and fast response to questions and concerns.
My final verdict is I would not sign up with this company. Companies should be transparent about their offering and offer fast support to those it services and those who market their products. There are so many other options available that Lucrazon Global shouldn’t even cross your mind.
If you need to educate yourself a little bit before making any kind of real decision on what direction you want to take with your online business you can do so for free and get all of the support you could ask for from professionals in the field of building online businesses that have become successful on all levels. Wealthy Affiliate offer training and support on all aspects of online marketing for free.
