Welcome to my Instant eCom Funnels Review. Now this has been out for some time now, since July 8th last year to be exact which should be enough time to see if this product works or if it’s just a complete waste of time.
This is a product that has been developed by two guys, Glynn Kosky and Leigh Kosky, who launched another product just recently which I reviewed called Traffic Multiplier which didn’t really do what the sales page said it would.
I’ve dabbled in eCommerce myself with some degree of success so this will be very interesting for me to see just what this is and if it do what the sales page claims it can.
OWNERS: Glynn Kosky & Leigh kosky
PRICE: $34.95 – £39.95
what is Instant eCom Funnels about
As the name would suggest this product is about creating funnels for eCommerce. Nothing untoward there you might think and you’d be right.
The problem lies with what they claim on the sales page as well as if the product actually works. First let’s take a look at some of the things that they claim this is and what it can do.
I’ve almost come to hate that phrase “Newbie Friendly“, it gets tossed around so much without a second thought for what it really means.
A lot of the time when I’ve reviewed products that all make that claim nothing could be further from the truth. It seems that product vendors put them two words in their sales page copy just to entice people who have no experience in, thinking that the product is indeed “newbie friendly” and that they too will be able to make money with it.
Unfortunately so many times that is NOT the case and people are left wondering if the reason it didn’t work was because of them. They then turn to the next shiny object that promises the same thing. And so the cycle continues.
But the fact of the matter is 9 times out 10 it isn’t the fault of the newbie, it’s just a case of the product being useless, but because they are new they don’t know any better.
Sorry, I just went off on a tangent there, let’s get back to this product…
That all sounds great doesn’t it, but are we really expected to believe that we are going to crush drop-shipping starting tonight.
Now I have a problem with these cloud based apps and it is based on very good experience of them, they seldom work and if they do they don’t work like they’re supposed to.
There are some very well known people in this industry that are constantly releasing cloud based apps that fail to work, I’m not going to name them on this post, but you can read about their latest failure here which is in a long line of apps that promise so much, but deliver so little.
ECommerce is BIG business if done right, you only have to look at all the Shopify stores that are out there to see that. Instant eCom Funnels claims to make venture into eCommerce as simple as just 4 steps:
Let’s take a look at step #1 – select one of high converting proven templates. What do you think that means? It sounds good. The templates are actually this which you adapt to your own needs. There are 5 different templates, but you don’t “select” one, you have to use all five of them in the funnel.
Step #2 is where it gets interesting, adding your product or it I should say it would be interesting if that actually worked! And that’s the problem with cloud based apps.
When you try and change the template with what you want on there and press the save button at the bottom of the page this is what is says and just doesn’t create a page.
I tried all the different template pages and every combination I could think of, I even followed the training video Lol, but all roads led to the same destination and the same conclusion, it doesn’t work.
So step #3 & step #4 are pretty much redundant if you can’t even get the damn thing to work!
Now seeing as this is 6-7 months since it’s launch I don’t know if it ever worked or if they have pulled the plug on it, but they are still selling it so I would assume they still maintain it, or not as the case may be.
what did I like
- The idea behind it
what didn’t I like
- The training fails to tell you WHAT to do with it once you’ve got it set up
- the training on how to actually get traffic is extremely poor
- Very expensive
- It didn’t work!
take a look inside
You have 2 options, Instant eCom Funnels lite @ $34.95 or the PRO version for $39.95. I’ve been reviewing the Pro version which apparently has a few more options than the lite version.
Once you’ve chosen your preferred package and manged to get past the one time offers, which I highly recommend you DO NOT buy at this point (I’ll explain that a bit later) you get to the members area:The training is split into 3 sections:
- Introduction – 4.06
- How To Build Your Funnel Pages – 13.53
- How to Connect PayPal – 11.21
- Set Up Your Emails – 18.54
2. FAQ & SUPPORT
- How To Get Support – 2.35
- How To Create a Funnel – 0.28
- How To Create a Page – 0.28
- How To Activate The Timer – 0.25
- How To Change The Colors Of Text & Blocks – 0.52
- How To Create an Order Bump Page – 1.22
- How To Link Pages Within Your Funnel – 2.00
- How To Insert an Image – 0.35
3. ECOM TRAINING
- Preferred Traffic Sources – 6.19
- How To Choose Products – 13.51
Now all that would be great if you could actually get the thing to work. It obviously works in the training videos, but not now for some reason and that makes it totally useless.
So you remember the 4 simple steps? I’m going to add a 5th step: Ask for a refund!
the one time offers
Now the reason I said for you not to buy the upsells straight after you buy the front end is because I have had numerous complaints from people who really struggle to get their money back under money back guarantees and if you buy all the upsells you are only increasing the amount you have the potential to lose. Read the comments here.
So what I would say to you is if you still want to buy this product that doesn’t work then go ahead, but wait until you see for yourself if it works then you still have the option of buying the upsells from these links here:
OTO #1- http://instantecomfunnels.com/gold/ – $37
OTO #2 – http://instantecomfunnels.com/platinum/ – $37
OTO #3 – http://instantecomfunnels.com/titanium/ – $37
OTO #4 – http://instantecomfunnels.com/license/ – $197
OTO #5 – http://instantecomfunnels.com/agency/ – $197
I really had high hopes for this, but as soon as I saw this was a cloud based app I had my reservations. Reservations that proved to be right.
If you are looking for a better way to get into eCommerce as someone who is new and knows very little about it, I can recommend a product I reviewed a little while ago which you can read about here.
As far as this product is concerned I would stay well away from it, it doesn’t work, simple as that so why would you want to waste your money on it?
Anything that promises “push button profits” always fails to deliver anything of any use and as this product shows anything that isn’t under your control is not a good idea because they can stop working at any time.
The most effective way to build an online business with eCommerce and have that passive income is by having your own website and not rely on other people to keep cloud based apps working. .
Having your own website is like building your house on rock solid foundations, without that your house will crumble and fall and the same goes for your online business.
