Owner: Neil Guess
Suitable for: Affiliate Marketer
Overview: Lead Lightning is a tripwire offer to a Multi-Level-Marketing Power Lead System started in 2013 by Neil Guess. Note that both are actually different products.
Lead Lighting is a sales funnel where customers are given a lead capture page, sales page, a professionally written email campaign, a contact management system.
The Power Lead System provides entrepreneurs with all the tools necessary to grow their business and make more sales, as they promote the business of their choice.
Lead Lightning Review – What is it all about?
Let’s take a look at this video.
Lead Lightning certainly caught my attention when I realized that it offers a full list building system and completes with an auto-responder.
Lead Lightning is in simplicity a marketing system/funnel with just a one-time fee of $7.
It has the following functions:
- You could build a targeted list with Leads Lightning.
- Your list can be contacted by email or phone.
- You could be earning $6.00 commissions for each Leads Lightning sales.
- You could generate Power Lead System Gold Membership sales and higher.
- You could use Leads Lightning to promote the business of your choice.
- Train & educate you on how to market online.
Let’s find out more.
Lead Lightning Review – The Tripwire.
Wow! It seemed a good for value offer!
Because auto-responder companies such as Aweber is charging a monthly fee of minimum $19/mth!
However, as you know, I am always skeptical of such offers because I have seen too many tripwire products over the years such as the iPAS2 system.
Tripwire products are products that offer you very low-cost entry point follow by a series of up-sell or down-sell bombardment.
True enough, once you sign up for Lead Lightning you are going to be offered the following
- Silver Membership.
- Gold Membership.
- Diamond Package
- Platinum Package
The $7 Lead Lightning could lead you to pay up close to $500 in the end!
I’ll elaborate on each membership a little later.
Let’s take a look at the difference between Lead Lightning and Power Lead System.
Lead Lightning Review – Different Products.
It could be slightly confusing here, so follow me closely.
Lead Lightning and the Power Lead System are actually 2 different products.
Lead Lightning is the “Lite” version of Power Lead System.
Silver Membership is the upgrade of Lead Lighting.
Once you upgrade to Silver Membership, you actually unlock some of the functions of Lead Lightning.
The compensation for Lead Lightning and Silver Membership is one-up. i.e. You get a certain percentage of your direct referral’s payment.
Gold Membership is the starting level of the MLM Power Lead System with its own compensation plan. (See Compensation Plan Video below)
Power Lead System offers you a 7-days free trial if you choose to join Power Lead System directly without going through Lead Lightning’s tripwire.
Inversely, you can choose to purchase the Lead Lightning product after the Power Lead System free 7 days trial ends.
Are you clear so far? 🙂

Lead Lightning Review – Compensation Plan
Let’s take a look at the Power Lead System compensation plan.

Lead Lightning Review – My Personal Take
Personally, I feel that Lead Lightning itself is a great product for new Internet Marketer who is just starting out and do not wish to invest in an autoresponder system that incurs monthly charges.
Although Lead Lightning comes with a pre-written sales email for you to promote Lead Lightning, you could modify them to promote your own product/business.
On the other hand, I do not like the fact that Lead Lightning will entice you to promote itself with all the training focused on selling it.
The upsells of Membership and Packages is a risk for new Internet Marketer who has no idea what is MLM all about.
Being an experienced MLM marketer before, I also know that MLM is not a simple business model as many have thought. There is no get rich quick without effort and hard work.
I am glad that in the Power Lead System compensation video, this is mentioned right in the beginning. (Watch again if you missed it!)
You have to ask yourself these questions,
- How do you market Lead Lightning?
- Who is your potential customer?
- How to recruit your member?
- Are you going to make cold calls to strangers or “SPAM” your social account?
- How to build a website that promotes Lead Lightning that generates viewerships?
- How to encourage your member to sell Lead Lightning?
- How to motivate your members to stay active so that you can have the monthly recurring commission?
- Have the products benefited you so much that you are so convinced telling others about it?
- Who do you go to when you are stuck or feeling down?
- Is your sponsor there to guide and help you?
I know, because I have been there and done that.
I had spent $1000s on MLM products and even experienced recruiting before.
I did countless presentations. Let me tell you, it is not easy to face rejections from your loved ones and close friends.
Moreover, people will give up easily when they expect to see a fast income but when it did not happen.
Lead Lightning cost only $7 to start.
It is not painful at all for anyone who gave up after one month when they do not see the money coming in, isn’t it?
You see where I am coming from?
Also, there is a very thin line between MLM and Pyramid Scheme.
MLM business offers compensation for sales of retail products from the sponsors to their downlines and possibly earn commission from their downline’s sales too.
Pyramid Scheme offers compensation for recruitment only. There is no retail product.
There are many MLM companies Online selling E-products of no values as a mask for its Pyramid Scheme. Therefore, you have to be very careful not to fall into traps of these companies.
Lead Lightning is a product that could be useful to new Internet Marketers. But would they use it as a mask to recruit because it offers higher compensation?
To make Online Passive Income, I would definitely prefer Affiliate Marketing.
Lead Lightning Review – Passive Income Alternative
I started my Affiliate Marketing business in 2014 and never looked back since.
Wealthy Affiliate is where I learned how to build a Successful Online Affiliate Marketing Business right from the fundamentals.
The best thing about Wealthy Affiliate is that I could start learning how to build my Online Business Passive Income with ZERO prior knowledge on Affiliate Marketing.
Not only that it comes with complete tools and Website building and hosting suite, Wealthy Affiliate comes with live support and help from the owners and the community.
It’s also an all-in-one platform with a fixed monthly fee, and you do not have to worry about other operation costs.
You can even test-drive it first with FREE* Starter Membership in the next few minutes!
I have written a comprehensive Wealthy Affiliate Review and perhaps you can find out more from there.
Lead Lightning Review – Final Verdict
Owner: Neil Guess
I rated Lead Lightning 2.0 stars because I think it is quite valuable for a $7 one-time payment, you have a workable lead marketing system for your product/business.
However, I am not really in favour in promoting it with the underlying MLM Power Lead System.
Power Lead System could lean towards the Pyramid Scheme if every member uses Lead Lightning as a mask to recruit. Ultimately, many people will suffer when a Pyramid Scheme crashes out.
Wishing you the best!

Thank you for the very detailed review of Lead Lightning.
Do you think it would be good to use them as an e-mail auto-responder for the start?
I am still looking for an alternative to Aweber which I don’t want to pay at the beginning. And this $ 7 one time payment seems to be ok. But as you said I would not necessarily want to promote their other products.
Thank you for this great review.
You are most welcome. 🙂
Yes, you certainly could use Lead Lightning as an e-mail auto-responder for the start. You got to get used to their constant upsell of their other products, though.
Alternately, you could try using Mail Chimp for the start. It is free to use for your first 2000 email subscribers.
Wishing you the best!

Can this be used to generate leads for an existing SERVICE business without getting involved in affiliate marketing or MLM?
Yes, you can. You can direct the link in the autoresponder email to your existing SERVICE business.
