What is it?
Constant Profit Factory is a 28 part video course that teaches you to buy and sell expired domains.
The idea is that you find and purchase old domain names so that you can sell them to search engine marketers who use them to build private blog networks.
This is just another product that promises easy money to beginners but fails to deliver. It’s an overly-complicated method that requires lots of experience and a large budget for temporary results. Despite the sales pitch, this product is not for beginners.
Before You Buy
The fact that product creators are still making products like this one amazes me. I’ve been reviewing Private Blog Network creation products for a while, but everyone stooped making them several months ago because Google (and other search engines) crushed their effectiveness. Personally, I think that PBNs are more work than they're worth, and the people that benefit most from them are the sellers not the buyers.
What I Liked
The Members Area
Once you buy the product and register, you are taken to the members area where you can see all the different modules separated into their individual parts. I feel like the members area was put together very well. All the modules are separated into logical parts and it was pretty easy to navigate around the site.
The core product is separated into the four steps that you see in the image above. The rest of the menu pertains to solve the bonuses and other stuff that you can buy. Each one of the four steps contains anywhere from 2 to 6 lessons each. Inside those lessons you will find as many as four video each. So there's quite a bit of content inside.
Stace created everything using mostly screen recording videos, which is a good way to learn for most people.
When a product creator uses screen recording that makes it much easier on the viewers understand what he is talking about. It gives you an over the shoulder view into what you are being taught. This is the easiest way to learn something new, and it's especially important something is highly technical as what Stace is trying to teach you here.
What I Didn't Like
Constant Profit Factory has a lot of flaws. I’d be very careful with any of the information you might get if you buy it. Let me point out the most important problems as I see them.
Very Poorly Explained
Maybe one of the worst things about this product is that it was so poorly explained throughout the whole process.
After I bought the product I was taken to the members area where I was a immediately overwhelmed by all the content. Naturally, I started with the first video and tried to figure out what was going on from there.
Unfortunately, there wasn't much of an introduction.
Stace simply jumped right in, which in most cases is a good thing, but this time it was not. Right from the start Stace was explaining where to buy, and how to use domain-scraping tools to find expired domain names. But at this point I still had no idea why I was supposed to be using it.
So, I went back to the sales page and tried to figure out from there what the point of this whole product was. Again, on the sales page, nothing is explained — unfortunately the sales page is full of your typical over-hyped salesy mumbo jumbo.
So at this point, I quickly realized there was absolutely nothing that explained the point of it all. I, like many others I’m sure, had been intrigued by this product simply due to its name. I knew it had something to do with buying and selling domains but I still needed the hard facts and practical application.
Unfortunately, I had to dig in and piece this puzzle together by myself. At no point did Stace come right out and say “This product is for doing ‘X’.”
Once I figured it out I was really disappointed.
Not for Beginners
Now, I’ve already discussed how vague in undetailed the sales page was, but it did try to make one thing very clear: “this product is for beginners.”
All throughout the sales page you see mentions of how easy this process will be for you, and how anyone can do it (Even a 72-year old grandma, right?.
Unfortunately that is not the case. Constant profit factory requires a lot knowledge and experience with some pretty advanced tools in a highly technical niche (search engine optimization).
I won’t go through the entire list, but you would need to know how to use domain scrapers, list-building software, search engine tools and much more. In fact, the least technical thing I found about the whole thing was the use of Excel spreadsheets, which I also find terrifying, but maybe I'm just too dumb to figure them out.
Contributing To The Private Blog Networks Hype
I’ve reviewed Private Blog Networks (PBN) products many times before. I’ve made my opinion on them very clear: I don’t like them. I think using them will hurt your business in the long run. On top of that, building a PBN requires doing a lot of work and spending a lot of money in an attempt to trick Google, and other search engines.
The idea is that you get a lot of websites that for all intents and purposes are unrelated, but also transfer website authority to each other. I'm not familiar with the entire process (and there are many strategies), but basically it's a way to generate links to yourself, and make it look like real people linked to you because your website is good. The end result is that you have a website that ranks on the first page of the search results and receive lots of traffic.
There are a lot of reasons why this is a bad idea, but I have two in particular:
The results you get by trying to build PBNs is only temporary. The search engines always figure out what you’re doing and they will put a stop to it. It’s not a matter of if, but when. Google makes several “major” updates each year and some are specifically targeting reducing the effect or or penalizing tactics like private blog networks. That doesn’t even count the so-called minor updates that happen everyday.
And the guys that build PBNs all know this. Some people think, “Not this time. Now I'm undetectable”. Others don't care, and just want to pump their site up to sell or just don't have foresight past a year or two of business.
To me, this is time and money could be spent building a business the right way — that way you don’t have to start over every couple years If you’re trying to build a business you should be thinking long term. Trying to trick search engines (and ultimately your own buyers) is not smart.
It takes a lot of time and money to build these things; you’re looking at an average of 12 to 24 domain names that need hosting, content and regular maintenance. This could easily cost you thousands of dollars each month. And it never stops. You build ‘em, search engines update and essentially tear ‘em down.
Can you make money selling domains to PBN owners? Do I recommend it? No. Coupled with the fact that I feel the advertising for this product is misleading, this is just not something I would spend money on. I do not think this product has a potential to produce “constant profit” like a “factory”.
