Product: e-Store Builder
Review Summary: Generic website to promote health and wellness products as an affiliate. There are few customisation options other than putting up your own logo which means this website will never rank in the search engines and you’ll be paying big dollars for visitors. Without visitors to your store you won’t make sales.
We are told that in just a few clicks we can quickly and easily start making money with our very own e-commerce store. This was the first of many red flags for me because I know very well that is not the case.
Nothing is ever that easy and this is no different.
The Problem With The Website
The problem with the website is it’s a generic template with very little you are actually able to customise. The other problem is that you are stuck promoting the products that ‘slimming.com’ (the mother website) are offering. After checking that website out, I am not convinced they hold the best products and the range is very limited at best.
The problem with having a generic website is that, while you can make sales, you will never be able to get a website like this ranking well in the search results.
Why does that matter?
Because without getting ranked in the search results you will be relying on paid traffic and social media spamming, among other expensive or ineffective methods of getting visitors to your store. Paying for traffic can be very effective if you know what you are doing, but if you don’t then it can be a very frustrating and quick way to lose a lot of money.
The fact that they make it all sound so easy is very misleading in my opinion because the most important part about making money with this kind of thing is getting visitors to your store. No customers equals no sales.
The way they are setting people up is going to require driving a lot of paid traffic and you need the right kind of education to be able to do this effectively. From what I have seen and heard, I am far from convinced these people are providing that kind of training.
What Others Are Saying
Upon researching this program online I found many complaints and poorly rated reviews by respectable and unbiased review websites. A lot of the websites I saw promoting this were of the lowest quality both in content and some of the other programs they were recommending. This is always a red flag for me.
The following complaint was one of many I found from people that have actually had their credit cards charged after the initial purchase and were not even able to access the product…
It also appears as though the support is non-existent which makes matters even worse.
Low Quality & Risky
Upon trying to join I was actually blocked by Google Chrome because apparently it was dangerous to enter this section of their website, this is a very bad sign.
After what I have heard and now this I would never even consider handing my credit card information to these people. Not a chance.
I also found their website and the ‘slimming’ website to be of a pretty low quality overall which does lead me to question the kind of quality I would be getting after signing up.
- Although not executed well by this company at all, the concept of selling other people’s products is a good one
- Possible security and credit card fraud risk
- Poor support
- Expensive and ineffective way to build a business
Unfortunately, standing out as unique and trying to get visitors to your store for a reasonable cost is going to be near impossible with this system. I also came across some alarming reviews by ex customers and couldn’t even access the order screen safely.
Nothing is ever as easy as they are claiming and based on what they are offering I doubt people are making much money at all.
The good news is that selling other companies products can actually be one of the best ways to make an income online if you learn the correct way to go about it and use a decent website builder.
In order to do this successfully you need the right training, tools and support to properly leverage the internet and build your business. The e-Store Builder just doesn’t cut it and will not help you build a website or make money on the internet.
