If you want more of the Good Stuff in life? You have to live it, breath it, and SEND the good stuff out so it can come back to you 10 fold. Follow me for a wonderful journey into the Magic of sending out MagicCards and Gifts. I wish you all to "Give a Great Day and you'll Get a GOOD day in Return" results Guaranteed or your money back!

With 20 years experience in network marketing this year, while experiencing success in only 2 other companies, this is not like any other. In my 7 years now as an Executive with Send Out Cards, it never gets boring, and I never lose interest. It's the most exciting, fun business, bar none, today. I expect to see years of growth and good times with SOC. Don't let anyone tell you a negative about this company and opportunity because there are none, hear it now, from someone who is experienced and having great success. The demographics for this product is anyone young and old, men and woman, businesses of all kinds. Jump all over it. All it takes is 1 - send a card, 2 - follow up and show others how to do the same. That's it in a nutshell. It's creative, it's definitely a feel good product, making someone else's day a better one, how can you lose with that? Best move I ever made. Click my name and check it out on your own. It's free to send a card and makes someone you know feel special.

SendOutCards ... a wonderful company. Thank you for making it easy for me to create and send personalized cards to all my family, associates, customers, and friends worldwide. I am constantly learning new ways to improve my SOC cards to make them more stunning. It is a joy to 'give' custom cards to people. It is my way to make a difference in their lives. I can imagine that some of my cards will be passed on to future generations way after I am gone. Keeping that in mind, I want to make the cards I send out the best I can make them. It is exciting and FUN to create cards. I am always willing to help others get started in SOC and show them how to make the best cards they can create. Aloha! Lorrin Lee, Hawaii. 808-949-5000. lorrin@lorrinlee.com ...contact me anytime.

It looks like you skipped Todd Falcone, he's always in the top 20 earners. He's usually 11 to 13 depending on the month.

Thank you for posting an in depth review about SendOutCards, learned a few things from you site. I will be back.

Renaud Gagné April 17, 2012 at 8:16 pm
I am truly grateful to have found that company. I believe SOC is special because we have a product that is relevant to the business community AND people. Also, the best part is that people don't consume the product....they SEND it! I think my mind is imploding.

I am not sure who I am writing to except that you have something to do with "Send Out cards". I have been a member for about six years. In the beginning I worked very hard trying to build a business with Send Out cards. I enrolled about 11 people in the Insurance, financial and real estate industries. None of them did the business and eventually they dropped out all together. I tried to promote the program to normal working people and none of them wanted to pay the $400.00. I have been trying for years to discover how people make a living promoting Send Out Cards. It seemed to be a natural business to me, but it simply doesn't work they way I was told it would I have never talked to anyone that is making a living with Send Out Cards. In fact I haven't found anybody that makes $10,000 a year. My one wish in life is to find someone that is successful and for them to tell me how they did it? The training program that Send Out Cards has simply doesn't work, there must be something I am missing but I can't find anyone willing to go to confession and tell me how to build a business with send out cards. One thing I do know is, you can't make it with just customers. I am convinced you have to find people that are willing to do the business. I have never found one person that wants to do the business never mind three , four or five of them. This is the thing I need to know and no one seems to know how this is done. Do you know anyone that can tell me? I really need to find a business that can generate some real money and will do exactly what that person tells me to do. The other problem I have is that no one in my upline has ever done or shared anything with me. My direct upline doesn't do the business anymore. If you can give me some direction or somebody's name that is willing to tell me how to build this business to a point where I could make about $20,000 per I would be most appreciative. Regards Ted Gray

Ted. You are not alone. All you have to do is look at the financial statement to see just how few people make any money with SOC. In fact I have found that the phrase most commonly used by a SOC distributor is how much money they have "lost" with SOC. I was a senior manager with them and they changed the rules and took away most of my residual commissions. This opened the door for them to change the rules at anytime to take away your money. Also the quality of the cards is not consistent. I used to send myself test cards sometimes and I was embarrassed with the quality about 1/4 of the time

Ron Cooper July 22, 2013 at 2:40 pm
Dear Reader, I have no interest in talking with Chris or Ted but I would like to post my love for this company, SendOutCards (SOC). After looking at MANY Network Marketing (NWM) companies over the years, this is the one that excites me the most. It may not excite you but you owe it to yourself to check it for yourself. Of the many that I have checked, I am a customer of 3 of them. I have been a SOC customer for almost 4 years and have met MANY SUCCESSFUL distributors online. I have acquired a very few customers but then I have not worked the business nearly like those who are successful in SOC. I admire Kody Bateman, the founder and CEO of SOC for his passion and persistence. The company has not grown as he envisioned but he has not swayed from his mission and vision. I admire passion and persistence in people. Kody and all of the SUCCESSFUL distributors in SOC and every other NWM company are persistent and passionate. Those who are not blame the company, the compensation plan, their mother's, any excuse will do. I have worked in many different professions over the years and Network Marketing, IMHO, holds the greatest hope for the economic future of this country and individuals who still dream, set goals, persist, network, and constantly work to improve themselves. Most people treat it as a hobby and then say it doesn't work. If they treated their jobs like their NWM business, they would be fired. If they treated a franchise in which they invested tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars like their NWM business, they would lose their entire investment. So, as a customer and student of NWM, this is my conclusion. Yes, there are bad apples in NWM, probably some of them in EVERY company. Then, there have been a few bad apples in EVERY profession, EVERY company and governmental agency. I hope that you will truly investigate things for yourself, not just go by comments from 2 dissatisfied individuals. Otherwise, you are selling yourself short. Best wishes, Ron Cooper, MBA Duke University www.linkedin.com/in/roncooperinok/

I am not a Send Out Cards member. I have been very successful with another direct selling company in the energy industry. However, as I have 'studied' various product based companies, I can see the appeal of Send Out Cards. How cool is it to send greeting cards to bring someone a smile!? Pretty cool indeed. They say the network marketing business is really a relationship business. Well SOC seems like a pretty good fit from that perspective.

My wife and I were introduced to SOC about 5 years ago and we loved the concept and the response we got when sending cards and gifts. We used the business to promote our brick and mortar business. After going through a dip in business, we used the points accumulated very infrequently. We allowed SOC to continue to take the monthly fees from our account knowing that we were building points in the business that we could use any time. Or so we thought. After missing a yearly fee that was due we noticed that the company was expiring some of the points on our account. "Expiring" they may as well have just said "hey, you paid for points over the years and now we are just keeping your money". While we still have points to send cards, we are disgusted with this practice and have gone from users of the system to telling everyone to avoid the SOC. We feel that they have stolen from us and this is just not fair. Be careful if you are going to give a company your money and have them convert your money to points. They have total control of your "points". Issuing warning about this and any MLM, Mike Wood
