12 x 12 Review

12 x 12 … Right, first things first. My aim is to help you decide whether you need it or not. Ok, time for a no-nonsense admission – I haven’t in actual fact used or bought the product (see my About page for an explanation), but I have trawled the internet hunting down info on it, to save you time. And hopefully someone who has bought it will add their opinion to the ‘Customer Reviews’ section to the right. So sit back, relax and read on as I save you time and tell you all you need to know about 12 x 12.

What is is?

To save you the hassle of digesting the sales pitch I have summarised what they say about themselves here:

Is anyone buying it?

Here I can provide you with some hard facts. We can use statistics provided by the payment processor. They release something called the product’s “Gravity”. It’s an indicator of how well the product is selling. I’ve taken this amount and produced a rating out of 100. Products with a high rating are popular. 12 x 12 scores 72.23/100 which is around standard.

Time to buy – your options

By now you’ve read through the résumé of what the product does (or claims to do…). You’ve examined the user reviews on the right hand side of the page. Perhaps you’ve even decided you might like to buy the product. So what next?

Option 1: Buy Direct

You click through to http://12×12challenge.com/membership/, and look for their link to buy the product. From there you’ll be linked through to the payment processor page and you can pay using a credit/debit card or PayPal. As of the time of writing the standard price for the product is USD99.


Option 2: Buy Through Me

If you click this link: 12×12challenge.com you’ll also be taken through to 12×12challenge.com, where you can go through the same process as Option 1. In this case though, because you were sent to the site via a special link, I get the credit for sending you over. If you do end up buying, I will receive a commission. There’s no difference in the cost to you. You might like to go for this option if:
  • You feel my info has helped you and you’d like to show your appreciation.
  • You’d like to be eligible for a purchase bonus (see below)


The purchase bonus

If you decide to go with Option 2, then you are eligible for a purchase bonus. This is my thank you for using my link. For more info and to find out what the bonus is, click here
