Brief Summary:

WP Profit Builder from Sean Donohoe is a plug-in for self-hosted WordPress sites. It allows users to build a variety of sales and marketing pages using the templates provided and a drag-and-drop editing system.

Do I Need Experience To Make This Work?

You will need experience of internet marketing. Some knowledge of WordPress will also be very helpful.

How Much Money Do I Need To Get Started?

There are no additional costs apart from the usual domain name and hosting for your WordPress site/s.

How Much Money Can I Make?

It’s impossible to say, as it depends how you use the sales and marketing pages you create. WP Profit Builder is a tool for internet marketers, and not a complete business opportunity in its own right.

How Much Time Will I Need To Make This Work?

Downloading and activating the plug-in won’t take you more than a few minutes, especially if you have done this before. Mastering the software is likely to take a bit longer, however.

Will I Need Any Equipment To Do This?

Just a computer with an internet connection.

Value For Money?

Maybe, if you’re an experienced internet marketer and prepared to devote some time and effort to learning to use the software.

Does It Live Up To The Claims In The Promotion?

To some extent, but the claim about how quick and easy it is to build pages using this software didn’t correspond with my experience. See my review (below) for further discussion about this.

Quality of Customer Service:

Adequate. A support query was answered after three days. I would like to have seen a faster response than this really.

Review

WP Profit Builder is sold via JV Zoo. Although in general I like this platform, I have to provide my usual caveat, which is that (unlike ClickBank) they don’t offer any money-back guarantee themselves. You have to rely on the vendor for this, therefore. I have no reason to believe that Sean Donohoe would fail to honour his 60-day guarantee, but it’s still something to bear in mind.

There are two attempted upsells. The first is for LaunchPad, which is described as an automatic site builder. This apparently builds blogs, member portals, review sites, e-commerce sites, and so on. Initially I assumed it was a WordPress theme, but it turns out that WP Profit Builder comes with a specially designed theme anyway, so I guess it’s not that. Anyway, it costs $67, so I decided to pass.

The second upsell is an opportunity to “test drive” Sean’s Inner Circle club. Members can get one-to-one advice from Mr Donohoe and other benefits too numerous to list here (sorry, getting a bit cynical in my old age). This costs $1 for 14 days, then $47 a month until you cancel. I decided this wasn’t for me either.

Once you have declined (or, I assume, accepted) the upsells, you should be able to access the WP Profit Builder members page. Here you can download the plug-in and optional theme, and you will also find the training videos. I’ll talk about the videos first.

The main training consists of six online videos. These are as follows:

1. Installation and Configuration
2. The Basics of Profit Builder
3. Landing and Squeeze Pages
4. Sales Pages and Funnels
5. Member Sites and Portals
6. High Powered Authority Blogs

I had a problem playing the videos initially, as they refused to work in my Firefox browser. When I clicked on them, they simply went dark. They worked fine in Chrome, however, so I recommend using that browser for viewing them.

The videos are in the usual screen-capture format, and are 10 to 30 minutes in length. Sound and video quality are both good. The commentary is provided by Sean Donohoe himself. He is a Brit and (to my ear anyway) has no discernible accent, so no problem there.

Where I did have a problem is that Sean does talk rather fast. In addition, he doesn’t appear to have a script or even a clear plan, so it can be quite hard to follow what he is doing, even if you play the videos several times. What would really help is a written user manual, but unfortunately you don’t get one, or even transcripts of the videos. You can download the videos in MP4 format for viewing offline, but that’s about all. I’ll return to this issue about the training later on.

As well as the videos, you can download the WP Profit Builder plug-in (and optional theme) from the members area. As is usual with WordPress plug-ins, it is in the compressed zip format. I tried to upload it from the WordPress dashboard, but unfortunately this didn’t work (I got a message that the file size was too great).

I therefore had to unzip the plug-in and upload it manually to the plug-in folders of my WordPress site using an FTP program. This is explained, after a fashion, in the Installation and Configuration video, but less experienced users may struggle here.

Once you have (hopefully) managed to install the plug-in, you will need to activate it using the code provided in the members area. You can then launch WP Profit Builder via your WordPress dashboard.

There are lots of options for creating posts and pages, and I can’t go through them all here. Most commonly, however, you start by uploading a template from the range provided. Several dozen are on offer, including squeeze pages, membership site portals, review pages, sales pages and funnels, download pages, authority blogs, and so on.

One thing I like is that the templates are all stored in the cloud, so they can be updated any time by the vendors. You can add those you like to your WordPress site by clicking on “Install”, so you don’t have to bloat your site by installing a lot of templates you will never use.

The main problem I had with WP Profit Builder is that while it undoubtedly has many features, the sketchy training and lack of written documentation means there is a steep learning curve. I soon discovered that the software has a few quirks that you have to get used to as well. For example, I couldn’t get the Amazon review page template to load initially, and only through trial and error discovered that you have to select the “full width” option from the editing menu first.

To sum up, WP Profit Builder does have its good points, but the so-so training videos and total lack of any documentation means that many users will struggle, initially at least. The issue with the training videos failing to play in some browsers doesn’t help, and the quirky nature of the software is another obstacle.

If you are patient and determined, and willing to master the software yourself using largely trial and error, WP Profit Builder may be worth your while. Take the promise that it will save you a lot of time and effort with a large pinch of salt, though.
