What is it
Social lead wizard is designed to help you build an email subscriber list using FaceBook. It helps you create FaceBook posts that include a call to action and an email signup form.
Social Lead Wizard is great for anyone who wants to build an email list using FaceBook. It has some great uses and some nice options. It’s easy to use but support is limited. Also, you can’t make money with this product alone, unless you have a FaceBook page with several thousand followers.
Before you buy
After you make your initial purchase, the guys at Social Lead Wizard felt it was necessary to offer you a little more. The upsells weren't as bad as some other products I've seen, but they're still worthless.
Upsell #1 Social Lead Wizard Red
For an additional $67 you can purchase Social Lead Wizard Red.
Basically a developer’s package, meaning you can install it on as many FaceBook pages you want.
This upsell comes an additional whopping price of $497. It’s supposed to be all the software and training you need to create a membership site. To me, it looks like a bunch of outdated info-products that I’ve seen being sold time and time again by other marketers.
Often these types of upsells are partnerships between 2 or more marketers who are trying to squeeze the last bit of profits from some of their older products.
What I liked
FaceBook is known for its ability to drive massive amounts of conversions for businesses and marketers. Social Lead Wizard taps into that by giving you a way to collect email addresses, which is smart.
With Social Lead Wizard you create FaceBook posts that entice users to signup for your email list. You can offer a free video, product download or coupon code. You can even include a “buy now” button if you want to sell products.
You have about fifteen different template choices for your signup form and you can drive subscribers to any webpage you want after they signup.
The different options they give you are pretty great.
Easy to Use
Once you gain access to the members area you’re ready to create your first post. It’s a very simple 3-step process and they walk you right through it. Once you choose the type of post you want (video, coupon, giveaway or product) you pick your template, edit your message and post it to FaceBook.
What I didn’t like
As far as the product itself, I didn’t have many problems. The ones I did have I will explain below. The real problem is that most people can’t use social Lead Wizard. You need to have a very large following and an established FaceBook page to make Social Lead Wizard profitable.
Getting the Product
Right from the very beginning Social Lead Wizard was problematic. I couldn’t gain access to it after I bought it for more than 24 hours. Because there’s three points of contact – the product creator, the company handling support, and the company handling the purchase, I was unsure who to contact at first.
Of course I did what we'd all do, I contacted all three. Eventually I got a response and got things worked out. There was a problem with Social Lead Wizard connecting to my FaceBook account, which is the very first thing you have to do in order for it to work.
Like I said above, I had some issues in the beginning so I tried to contact whoever could for an answer. After about 34 hours I got a response from the a third party company that’s paid to handle support for this product (and many others I’m sure).
I never got a response from the creator of the product which was kind of insulting. Yes, he’s paid someone to handle this problem for him but a quick note would’ve shown some professionalism.
In my journey of looking for people to contact about my issue, I went back to the sales page. At the bottom I found a tab that says “Support”. Unfortunately that tab didn’t go anywhere, so I was forced to wait.
Although the product is pretty simple to use, it does require a little learning. For that reason, Karthik Ramani put together a few videos to help you get familiar with everything. I have a few problems with those videos.
- Karthik Ramani, is foreign and his English is very, very bad. It's so difficult to understand what he's saying that I had to mute the video and just watch the screen.
- The videos aren't accessible from the member's area. They are on a page that you're taken to after you connect your FaceBook account. This makes them difficult to find later because they don't link to that page from the member's area.
- They only show you how to work the product. They should've included at least one short video to provide some marketing advice. They could've included something to give you a little knowledge on FaceBook selling, at least.
Not a terrible product, but not a great one either. It's also not something I'd recommend for my readers. Normally I wouldn't have reviewed something like this but it wasn't really clear from the beginning what it was. Anyway, I wouldn't spend my money on it so I'm giving it a thumbs down.
