You may have found out about Giant Cinema through a friend, a family member or a Craigslist posting and are wondering if Giant Cinema is a scam or a legitimate way to make an income. I know what you’re thinking, “Here is another example of an affiliate writing a review article. There is no way that this will be an honest review on Giant Cinema!” Continue reading and you will be surprised.
I came across Giant Cinema through Craigslist. My fist impression was this is way too good to be true. The GiantCinema.com website is not impressive to say the least and why in the world would a person register for a streaming media platform that hasn’t been released or promote the service for that matter when there is no back end system to keep track of results? I would be lying if my first impression was “Giant Cinema?!”, how about “Giant Cinema Scam!”
I don’t know why but I did something I never do when the word “scam” jumps into my mind. I created a shortcut to GiantCinema.com on my desktop. Each day I would use my laptop and before getting onto the internet the shortcut was right there. I started clicking through on the short cut a few times a day and viewed the video on the home page a handful of times. On July 11th, 2013 I registered with Giant Cinema and received a short welcome email containing an affiliate link. I did absolutely nothing with Giant Cinema.
I’d be lying if I didn’t say that the internet is full of get rich quick schemes and scams in general. Over the course of the last few months I’ve had co-workers try to sell me on actual scams like World Wide Ventures and the absolutely ridiculous Empower Network. For whatever the reason, I just couldn’t get Giant Cinema out of my mind. If it was a scam where were the over the top banners claiming that I would become rich beyond my wildest dreams? Why wasn’t Giant Cinema asking me for a one time low fee to get involved or some sort of monthly fee for the opportunity to market for them? If it was indeed a scam what would the purpose of the scam be? I can think of hundreds of ways that would be much easier to harvest email addresses if that was indeed the purpose.
On August 2nd, 2013 I fired off an email with my concerns via the contact form on GiantCinema.com. The very next day I received an email back from Ross Callen, the owner of Giant Cinema, Inc. addressing all the concerns contained in my email. After receiving the email reply I still had an uneasy feeling. A few days later, August 5th, 2013, I emailed Ross asking him to call me. On the evening of August 7th, 2013 I received a call from Ross. I spent almost 3 hours on the phone with me discussing my concerns, his vision and a variety of subjects. After ending the call this feeling of pure excitement shot through my body. I ran into the living room, looked at my wife and started speaking so fast that she couldn’t understand half the words that were coming out of my mouth. On August 8th, 2013 I began promoting Giant Cinema. The question that you may be asking yourself is “Why did you decide to start promoting Giant Cinema? What did Ross say to you?” Out of respect for Ross I won’t disclose our personal conversation but I will tell you why I began to promote Giant Cinema.
1. I’ve always wanted to get involved with a start up company that has a unique niche. What exactly is the niche? Giant Cinema is sharing 10% of their revenue. Is this really a niche? 100% YES. Think of the major service providers in the streaming movie industry. Netflix, Block Buster on Demand, Hulu Plus, etc. all generate revenue but NONE of them share their revenue with their subscribers.
2. Affiliate marketing is nothing new and one of the best ways to earn an income from home. The Giant Cinema opportunity is their affiliate program. This is not some sort of MLM (Multi Level Marketing) company where Giant Cinema is going to pay you a 10% commission on the people you refer, 5% on the people they refer and 2% on the people that those people refer. What Giant Cinema is doing is paying a 10% commission on the people that you refer, nothing more nothing less.
3. The opportunity for monthly residual income. For every person that I refer who watches Giant Cinema I get a 10% each and every month. That’s right, each and every month. Not a one time wham bam thank you mam. Is this unique to the industry. YES! Netflix has an affiliate program where a person can refer another person into a free trial. If that person become a paying member at $9.95 a one time commission is paid. I don’t know what the commission is but even it were 20% why in the world would I want to promote them for a one time commission of $1.99 on for a customer that could make Netflix $117.89 a year?! Great deal for them but not so much for me.
4. No cost to get involved. 100% free to join and 100% free to promote. I have not spent one cent promoting Giant Cinema and am growing my sack of potatoes every day.
So the question remains, is Giant Cinema a scam or a legitimate opportunity? I hope you realize from the above that Giant Cinema is not a scam. However, let’s take a look at the opportunity. I will do this by asking you to remove Giant Cinema from your mind at this very moment. Instead I’m going to use Netflix to make my point. Netflix is a membership driven business model who charged $9.95 a month to stream movies from their library. Say that prior to Netflix launching they provided the opportunity for you to promote them with a promise of a 20% commission for each person that you referred to them and paid the $9.95 monthly membership fee each and every month that that person is a paying member. That referral would be worth $1.99 a month or $23.88 per year to you. How many members could you have referred to them? 100, 200, 1,000, 5,000, 10,000+? As Giant Cinema does not make any statements with regard to potential earnings I will choose to do the same. I will leave this to your imagination and a bit of research on your part. However, I will ask you to ponder the following question. Why would a person use his free time to refer over 400 people to Giant Cinema and create a blog if Giant Cinema were not a legitimate opportunity?
Better yet, feel free to give me a call at (716) 791-SPUD (7783). Keep in mind that Giant Cinema is a side business for me and I do work on a full time basis. However, if you don’t connect with me, leave me a voicemail and I will call you back.
