The Myth of the 8 Percent Annuity

When it comes to advertising and annuity marketing, there is just too much deceptive information out there. Far too often, people just get confused.

Every day, we get calls from confused retirees who’d clicked on an online ad promising a ‘Secret 8% Annuity Return…”

Chances are good that if you searched online for retirement income or annuities, you probably saw these ads too because they are all over the place. CNN, Fox News, Facebook… the ads promise an 8% or more rate of return and flash an alert to seniors to lure you in…

But what you might not know is that recently, state regulators have labeled these ads as ‘deceptive’ and called them a ‘bait and switch’. Every day people call AST after clicking these ads, and then doing online research. They are confused and suspicious, I can’t blame them one bit.

So let’s start by making one thing crystal clear. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. These kinds of ads give annuities a bad rap and make me want to scream.

But what good would screaming do? Nothing. Even though state insurance regulators have issued warnings about these ads, the ads are still out there and people are still confused. I decided I needed to reach out and help as many people as I could with a little straight talk and plain truth.

You see, an annuity CAN give you superb and GUARANTEED results…. But just what sort of results you get all depends on the quality of advice you get before you buy….

The problem with these ads starts right at the beginning …. when you’re led in with a false promise or a deceptive sales pitch, how can you really be sure you’re getting what’s right for you, and not getting shoved into something that’s only right for the salesman?……

How can you ever trust a guy enough to invest in the product he’s pushing… if he lures you in with a bait-and-switch, misleading ad at the start? That’s no way to start out a relationship!

So I’m on a mission to help people understand exactly what these contracts do, and what they don’t do. Only then can you make an informed decision if it’s right for you. And that’s exactly what we do at Annuity Straight Talk.

So to help protect our subscribers from these deceptive ads, I recently did a series of videos that are just packed with important information, tips, and action items, including The Best Of Porn Hub VR Videos. Visit the AST Flex Strategy to watch them instantly. There’s also a completely free gift, a booklet I put together of the ‘AST Flex Strategy Guidebook” to help you make sense of it all.

So click on to watch this special presentation now … I promise to shoot straight and tell it like it is…. I’ll see you there.
