What is it?
Internet Marketing Jumpstart Blueprint is a product that's supposed to help you build an online business by providing you with some training and some templates that you can upload to your website. Put simply, it's an ebook and a few files that you basically copy and paste into your own business.
Products like Internet Marketing Jumpstart Blueprint are total garbage. The only thing that remotely resembles something of value would be the ebook but it's full of very basic information.
The real product here is the files that you copy and paste into your website. But doing something like that is a terrible idea. It's not something you can do (and make a business out of it) unless fairly tech-savvy and knowledgable about SEO + marketing. Even if you can manage to do it, it's never going to work.
Copy-and-Paste-Businesses don't work. Period. Unfortunately, the people who sell them know it, which is what makes it so frustrating to review these products.
Before You Buy
Khondoker has created more than one product. I recently reviewed one called Commission Crusher Reloaded. The product had a similar feel to it: copy and paste some content and get rich.
It too was full of templates and general information. I gave it a score of 30 out of 100, which is not good. This product will be his second strikeout.
This product requires you to upload a few files to a server. For an additional $30 you can pay to have all these files uploaded for you.
But you're not out of the woods if you do that. You still have to know some technical things because you have to be able to edit those files with your own personal information. And you will likely have to do it more than once, because things like affiliate links, email addresses and phone numbers will change.
What I Liked
Unfortunately there is not much that I can say I liked about this product. I don't agree with what it promotes and it does not give any real information. Any information it does provide is very basic. I guess it's nice to dream once in a while though.
What I Didn't Like
There are a lot of big problems with Internet Marketing Jumpstart Blueprint. Probably more than I could explain it one review, so I'll try to outline the most important ones you should be aware of.
Technical Ability Required
Internet Marketing Jumpstart Blueprint comes with quite a few files that you have to upload to a web server. That means it requires some technical know-how which keeps it from being friendly for beginners.
These files are basically nothing but raw code. When you download from the page they are organized numerically within a .ZIP file.
If you don't know how to upload these to a server, then you aren't going to be able to use this product. The reason I don't like this is because this product is supposed to be fore those who don't know much about business online, or the internet in general.
It seems like Khondoker (the creator) doesn't really understand his target audience. Most people starting out are worried about starting something new, and they get hit with THIS. Even I would have a little trouble trying to do it! This is why I like WordPress for my business so much 🙂
Lack of Support
With Internet Marketing Jumpstart Blueprint you're given a few PDF guides, some raw files, and then you're on your own. You can pay $30 to get Khondoker, or his employees to help you upload those files, but then what?
You're given a “read me first” file that's supposed to walk you through everything. But that's impossible to do, especially in just three pages.
That's the problem with this product (with most products actually). There is no real help once the initial purchase is over. You're expected to consume whatever information they give you and instantly become an expert at online marketing. As someone that's built a few successful affiliate websites, I know that it just doesn't happen that way.
You need real support and anyone selling a product like this one, should offer it. Unfortunately they don't.
Bad Business, For You And For Customers
So basically what you get from this product is a copy and paste business. I see these types of products popping up more and more lately, and it worries me because stuff like this never works.
For starters, they don't work. You just can't copy someone else's content, website and emails to create a profitable business. What you'll have is a website that looks just like the other guy's.
Now in this case — where the idea is being packaged up and sold — you'll have a website that looks just like hundreds of others. Not good. Usually, biz-in-a-box type deals are very generalized information rather than targeted, high quality info that people are looking for online.
Is it a business? I guess. Will it generate profit? Absolutely not.
Franchising might work for fast food chains but it does not work online. Brick-and-mortar franchises sell for tens of thousands of dollars, if not more. The idea that you can buy a web based version for $20 is silly.
Secondly, search engines hate them. If you do a quick search on any search engine you choose, for any topic you choose, you'll notice that all the websites you see are very different.
- They have different content
- Different images
- and they take a different angle to the topic.
This is because search engines don't like duplicated content. In fact, they will remove websites from the search results if they feel like it has copied a significant portion of information from other websites. Any website that relies on copied content has to do a lot of social media work or paid ads because they simply cannot generate traffic from search.
There are a number of other reasons copying someone else is bad for business, but those are the two most important points, when it comes to online marketing.
Why invest your time and money into another fly by night company when you could join the internet's most trusted online business community? They’ve been around since 2005, and they’re always ahead of the curve. Take a look at how they shaped my transformation from a low-paid English teacher to a full time internet marketer.
Instead of looking for a biz-in-a-box solution, why not try to get started on the right foot? Get legitimate training on how to start your own business, not re-start someone else's.
