One thing I hate when you check out reviews for products is the blatant way that many are not balanced views. It isn’t often that you find a negative review is it? After all who would take the time to write at length about a product if they are not in someway going to make money from it? Me I would and without an affiliate link in sight! Conclusion Neutral – I recently joined Nicheprofit Blueprint when it opened its doors for the second time at a cost of $497. The memberships to this site are limited to a few hundred at any one time. They are said to have a very low refund rate of less than 5%. I have to say I have added to that percentage! The program was recommended by many that I respect in Internet Marketing but then who wouldn’t promote it with the high commissions on offer.
Let me sum up what the site is about.
Create a website that sells niche physical products and get it to the top of Google to make huge profits. Either keep the site or sell it for top dollars. They supply a list of dropshippers so that you don’t handle goods. The dropshipper directory that you have access to covers other countries than the US all be it a bit more lite! They also supply a website template system to easily build your online store.
Now if you are completely new to marketing websites on the Internet then this isn’t a bad start. There is plenty of information laid out in a step by step way in the form of video and pdf media. The problem for me is the price tag! At $497 abot £360 as I write this is a bit steep especially if you already have some working knowledge of websites and marketing them.
I was interested mainly because of their claims to get sites ranked high on Google. The problem for me is the way that they do it. It is a three way linking system so I link to site A, site A links to B and site B links to me. This is a much used practise amongst many who do indeed swear by it, I’m not so keen though for the following reasons.
Google is getting cleverer by the day eventually it will get wise to this less than white hat tactic. If Google were to find a site operating in this way it will get de-indexed simple as, no questions asked! I’m not prepared to spend hundreds of hours on a project and put it at risk.
I have seen the pages of links that need to be added in the background of your site to create the backlinks for others and it ain’t pretty and is open to abuse!
So that is my main reason for not staying with the program. Further to that for a resident of the UK (which I am) to sell physical products in the US is not simple but it is possible. For anybody wanting to do this I would strongly recommend that you only do it in your own country. Something that isn’t made totally clear before you start to research your niche!
My last gripe was the quality of dropshippers listed for the UK. Quite frankly I stopped looking at any more when I got to a certain dropshipper that I knew of and they were listing. I probably mistakenly thought that they had put some effort into finding good ones not so for the UK I am sorry to say.
So in conclusion for people new to the world of Internet Marketing and wanting their own physical products site the training is good but not outstanding . There is a workable promotion guide but if it were me I would avoid the linking that I talked of above. There is some automated niche store builder to help get the site live when you have chosen a niche. I think the support is very good from my limited use of it.
If you are more experienced I wouldn’t bother to be honest you’re more than likely to have all the knowledge that you need. If you have gaps in knowledge plug the gaps in other ways this is an expensive option at $497 !
At the moment the doors are closed but I am sure they will re-open if your not sure but would like to see for yourself then go for it, it might be right for you. I had no problem getting my refund they were very polite and thanked me for taking the time to try it. I’m not linking to thier site just Google it if interested in getting on their notification list.
My opinion Neutral
