Hey guys hope, you’re doing well in this video i’m going to share my honest review of an all-in-one online business platform called system and whether it lives up to all the promises, features and benefits, as stated on their website, and it’s trust pilot score of 4.
8 stars Out of 5 on trustpilot, first of all, i want to be 100 transparent and let you know this is a paid sponsorship system approached me to share my thoughts and opinion of their tool, but they had zero input in terms of talking points and what i need To cover so what you’re about to see is my 100 unbiased, honest opinion of the tool and whether it’s right for you so with that said, let’s get on with the video to start off with what exactly is system the best way to describe it and based On my usage of system in the past week, i see it as an all-in-one system to sell your products, especially when it comes to digital products.
On the website, you’ll see what tools they offer. You can create things like sales funnels, build your email list with the email marketing built in it’s a website builder as well. You can also integrate an affiliate program so get getting other affiliates to promote your products.
It’S got business, automation, evergreen webinars! You can host online courses, start a blog and also sell your products when it comes to all-in-one systems and platforms, i’m rather skeptical, because you can’t be great at every single aspect of that particular platform or tool.
It’S like that saying we are a generalist and a specialist or when you’re good at everything, but a master of none so doing this review. It came from the notion and perspective of being someone who’s, quite skeptical, of these all-in-one platforms.
So i kept a mental note as i was actually going through the features and the tools and, in general, the whole system. The biggest advantage i see with these all-in-one systems is exactly that. It’S all-in-one, you don’t need a multitude of different tools and subscriptions that add up in cost things like email, marketing, a website and web hosting a landing page builder and a course hosting website.
Another advantage of these all-in-one platforms is that all of the different tools integrate with one another without any conflict and in general, the disadvantage. As stated, these all-in-one platforms may not be great or a master of that one aspect of an online business platform.

Another downfall, but one that’s quite rare – is that because you’re hosting everything on that one platform you’re putting your eggs in one basket, but those are some general things to know about. All-In-One platforms before you consider signing up to one the biggest standout of system is that they offer a free plan, including their entire suite of tools, systems, pricing and plans page show everything that you get with the free plan.
You can build up to 2 000 contacts. You can send unlimited amount of emails, unlike some email marketing platforms, where sometimes they charge based on the amount of emails that you send. You can create up to three different sales funnels.
You can have up to 10 steps in your sales funnels create one blog, which is more than enough, especially if you’re just getting started. I mean i can hardly handle one blog myself. You can host up to one course, and that’s more than enough, especially if you’re just a beginner getting started and going out there to sell your first course.
In addition to that, you can have unlimited students and bear in mind. Students and contacts is different. So, with contacts that has more to do with email, marketing, sending email, marketing campaigns to 2000 people up to 2000 people, whereas students is, if you sell your online course, you can have unlimited students.
Another one worth mentioning is unlimited file storage. So let’s say, you’ve got an online course and you’ve got multiple videos that you need to host. They don’t charge you based on the amount of gigs that you’re actually using you, get unlimited storage and a few other benefits like automations, workflows, tags, email campaigns, you can do order bumps a b, split testing and much more about.
As you can see, you get the entire suite of products. The main difference is the amount of things that you can actually create. Like sales, funnels and courses, signing up to system is really simple and easy to get started.
If you look in the description box below i’ll, provide my link, it’s an affiliate link but you’re free just to go to system.io, sign up and click on, get started for free you’ll need to enter your email address and then, after that, you’ll receive this confirmation.
Email. You simply click that and then it will prompt you to create your password just for perspective. Let’S say you build an email list of 5 000 people or contacts with system on their monthly plan, you’re only going to pay 27 per month, whereas with a popular email.
Marketing platform such as active campaign with 5 000 contacts, you’re going to be paying 99 per month on their light plan, all right, moving on, let’s get into the nitty gritty of system and check out the actual dashboard and some of the tools we’ll start with the Dashboard really simple, easy clean, you know quite minimal, in my opinion, almost nothing else except new leads and sales on the right.
You’Ve got the custom range date that you can set, so you can see what stats you want to appear. You’Ve also got live. Updates right here. Bear in mind that with the dashboard you can go to the main dashboard or your affiliate dashboard.
Now an affiliate dashboard is more so you being an affiliate promoting other people’s products on system because they do have a marketplace. So if you click on marketplace, you’ll see a range of products that are actually listed in systems marketplace.
You can promote any of these products, but it’s quite new or most people, don’t really have their products featured in the marketplace here. So i’m not sure why you can see that there are only 45 info products going to the affiliate dashboard quite similar to the main dashboard you’re, given your stats stats by vendor or total sales in general.
Moving on, let’s go into contacts, because this is going to be one of the primary locations for managing your actual subscribers right off the bat. You can see all your subscribers here going to different pages or sorting them by the number of contacts you see per page number of contacts that you have.
You can also filter by email, first name last name and many of these other filters. You can add contacts by clicking on create a contact so adding one single contact at a time entering their details and then selecting the tags that you want associated to that actual subscriber if you’ve got an existing email list or you want to switch over to system.
You can always import them by, firstly, exporting them out of your existing email marketing platform and then going to system clicking on import contacts going into an individual, subscriber or contact.
You can click it and then make any modifications you’d like such as their name. Their city address you can select different tags or deactivate a certain tag. It also shows how they subscribe with the source url and the squeeze page.
Creating more tags is quite simple: go to contacts go to tags and from the top corner. You add a new tag while we’re on the subject of subscribers and leads let’s head to emails, the email marketing platform before we go into funnels so under emails.
Let’S start with newsletters newsletters are for sending one-off emails that get sent out in a broadcast format, with campaigns, on the other hand, you’re creating an email series. So if you want a sequence, let’s say on day one lesson: one goes out day.
Two lesson two goes out: if you wan na create something like that, that’s where campaigns comes in, but with newsletters. If you wan na, send out broadcasts – or let’s say you’ve got a marketing promotion going out tonight, then that’s what you want to use to create one all you need to do is click on create a newsletter and quite straightforward.
First, you start with the subject line. So i’ve got my subject line. You enter your sender, name and email address. However, you can set defaults for these in your account settings choose from a visual editor or a classic editor.
If you want something that is more, you know with colors and your branding and all that you want to choose a visual editor, whereas classic is just plain text, but let me create one just to show you what it looks like this is what the email is Going to look like you can modify anything you want, it is in a way a wysiwyg editor.
How do i know what to do next, if it doesn’t actually tell me or show me or take me to that next step? So what you actually have to do is click on exit, even though that sounds like you’re going to pretty much exit and go somewhere else.
What you’re actually going to do is move on to the next step, which is this. You can schedule your broadcast and set your segmentations, including your tags. Who are you going to send this email out to do you want to send it to your newsletter subscribers? Those with the podcasting tag, productivity tag? Of course, these are all my custom tags that i created, but let’s say you want to send it out to your main newsletter.
You can set it with that, send emails only to contacts registered over so and so amount of days. So let’s say only after they’ve, you know been subscribed for as a subscriber for 30 days. You can set that there.
You can also exclude certain tags and use some of these variables, which they call substitutes. So if you want to include the subscriber’s first name, that’s only if you’ve actually collected these details, you can add that in in let’s say the top of your email.
But that’s one thing: i noticed that is lacking the email segmentation quite a downfall, because i want to be able to be flexible and have that option to send out to an advanced you know kind of filter.
I want to send out to those who actually click this link, who purchased this product and also opened their email in the last six months, or something like that. You can sort of work your way around it using automations which will run through, but it would have been nice to have it in this area where you can set your segmentations.
Add your tags and then schedule it all in one place. But let’s say you are ready to send your email, you can save and then send a test email and that will send it to your associated email address for testing.
So you can see making sure that everything looks all good, but once you are ready, click on save and schedule newsletter. That will take you to this page, where you can again send a test, email address or schedule your newsletter at a certain date and time.
But if you are ready to send your newsletter, all you need to do is hit that send button, and then it will do the rest for you, going back into newsletters you’ll see a dashboard and statistics of your open rate, your click-through rate and the date that Was it was sent nothing more to it than that, but going to campaigns? This is where you can actually create your email series.
So i’ve created some dummy ones. I’Ve got one called my free ebook. You can see what i’ve done. I’Ve got this first email going out straight away. You can see the delay there’s zero minutes, which means immediately lesson.
One goes out one day after it lesson two goes out another day after it was quite easy for me to set up these emails. All i needed to do is add an email quite similar to creating a newsletter. All you need to do is enter a subject line.
Let’S say in this case lesson number three choose your visual editor or you can duplicate a previous email. Let’S say from lesson two or one create it: you’ll be taken to the editor, i’m just going to save changes, and this is where you can set the actual delay.
Let’S say one day after the previous, so one day after lesson number two, there are also different settings like time when email should be sent. You can send it at a particular time. Let’S say 9 am every time or days of the week when this email should be sent so monday, tuesday.
Let’S say you don’t want to send on weekends. You can also set that click on publish and now you see lesson number three right after number. Two so really simple to use. I don’t have any complaints in terms of the actual ease of use of creating an email series, all right with email marketing out of the way.
Let’S talk about funnels, because this is one of the fun parts right building our sales pages, our landing pages, opt-in pages depends how you see it. Actually, if you feel this is a fun part, yeah that’s great, but let’s go ahead and show you how it looks like so.
I created three different funnels just to play around with, but one is this one right here: productivity for creators. This is what it looks like, so it starts with a free ebook, so you can create a full-fledged funnel where you offer something for free and then have an upsell or upgrade later on.
If they don’t take up on that, you can offer a down, sell and then send a related offer and then to their. Thank you page. So this is what you see. One thing i wish they had is a visual editor or more say a visual uh representation or a flow of your whole sales, funnel that you create with system.
So with this, i can only see in a kind of logical linear form. So it’s quite linear, where it’s free, e-book and then after that they see a sales page. So i’ve got two different sales pages because there’s a feature for a b split testing where you can split tests from one page versus another and then you’ve got the actual order form and then an upsell upsell number two, which you can also do and then, if They don’t take up on the upsell number, two there’s a downsell and if they don’t take the down sell, then you can offer something related.
But this is just a dummy kind of funnel that i created you, don’t necessarily have to have a complex one like this. You know, and then you’ve got your thank you page, but, starting with, let’s say the free ebook, you can create a squeeze page set your url path, let’s go to edit, because i want to show you how the actual page builder looks like this is one of Their templates that i used and you’ve got your headline.
You’Ve got your form and then your button uh one thing that i was a little uh confused about, and maybe i it was more easier to spot than i realized is how do you actually integrate? You know your email marketing, your form, your opt-in form with the page builder right here, but it’s actually simpler than i thought, if you simply click the opt-in form or the button more so, let’s see here so i’ve clicked it.
You can see action when button clicked uh. What happens next, so you can send send them the or send the form you can show a pop-up open, a url uh go to the next step of the url and so on and so forth.
But what you want happening is to send the form and then do you want to redirect users after contact registration. What do you want happening so that goes to the next step, which in my case is that thank you page or actually more so the actual sales page.
So you set your kind of flow right within that same page builder. So it’s actually a good thing, because you don’t have to go outside copy and paste a certain code or placeholder short or short code onto your actual opt-in form right here, right uh, unlike wordpress, and something like elementor, where you have to go and grab that opt-in Form code and then paste it in using manual html code, but let’s backtrack a bit, because i want to show you how to actually create a funnel.
If you go to funnels and let’s create a new funnel, it’s all about just clicking that plus button and let’s say demo funnel uh what you want to do. You want to build an audience, sell a product or service uh, create a custom one from scratch or run an evergreen webinar.
So it gives you those options and then it then inserts those templates. Based on what you select. Let’S say you want to sell a product, we’ll click on sell, select your currency, click on create it’ll, automatically, create that step of an order form and a thank you page.
So that’s the only difference. Otherwise, you can start from scratch, but from here you can set your template for your order form. Let’S say you like this one right here you can preview it. Let’S see what it looks like quite simple, quite basic.
You can also look through some other ones. Let’S say this: one here looks a lot. Cleaner, looks a lot better, but let’s say i like that one all you need to do is click on select. You then, set your resources, things like your pdfs, your ebooks, your zip files, anything that you are meant to deliver to your customer after they purchase.
So you click that plus button select your resource, but you have to add those resources. First, so let’s say they get access to one of your online courses. You select course and then choose a course i’ll select digital marketing for beginners and then choose a course access type.
You want them to get full access or drip content or select full access. So now, what’s going to happen is after they actually purchase they’ll get access to this course called digital marketing. For beginners below that, you have to set your pricing plans, it’s a little confusing, because if you are selling a one-off product it sounds a little confusing as plans, so i would call it uh pricing just keep it simple.
That’S one thing i got confused about, but with price plan type you select one shot, if that’s a one-off payment, otherwise you can select subscription or a payment plan, choose a price plan and you have to set these first so do not find the right plan.
So you have to create a new one. If you create a new one that will take you pop up a new window. You enter that price plan name price plan name for the payment page for your customers to see statement descriptor the type a one shot things like that.
So you add that in and once you have that all you need to do is then select that actual pricing plan. Let’S say it’s this one right here, you also have the ability to add coupons and an order bump. So if you want to bump up the order, let’s say: do you want to add another copy of this or you know something else? If you want to cross-sell, you can do that with order bumps.
There are some other tabs here and options like automation, rules. So more advanced, if you want that feature like adding a different rule, let’s say when a new sale occurs then this will happen. So you add the action.
Let’S say when that customer does buy, you can subscribe them to a specific campaign. Let’S say a special customer. You know introduction or a series of emails that educates them on that particular subject of that course, and as you saw, you can do a b split test where you’re testing against one page versus another to then see which one does better or converts more customers.
You also set your thank you page, so that page where they can download all the deliverables and what they uh go for or you can simply uh set a page that says thanks for purchasing. But what happens is when you do sell? Let’S say an online course: you will that your customers will receive an email, letting them know to create a password.
This is what the email looks like after someone purchases, let’s say an online course. I did a test purchase it sent this and it says to login. Please send a new password, so quite straightforward. I don’t know exactly how to actually customize this email or if this email can actually be edited and if it can’t, then that’s quite a downside, because you want to be able to make it your own.
And perhaps with your branding and of course, your wording, let’s say you want to create a sales page before the actual order form we create a step and then from the options we say sales page and then chooser type we scroll down.
So you can see. There’S opt-in options, sales, page options, we’ll click on sales page and what will appear are some sales page templates to choose from one thing i wish system had done is keep the actual template designed consistent with the rest of the actual pages from the opt-in form to The thank you page to the sales page, the upsell pages.
For now it is quite uh. It’S different. You know every page that you see right here. Let’S say you select this one, there’s no actual matching! Thank you page for it that looks similar to it. So therefore, you’re going to have to build it from scratch or make modifications to those other pages.
But let’s say you like this one right here, we’ll click on select. You can set the url path and by the way you can actually set a custom domain name. If you simply go to your account settings which we’ll cover later on, but for now, what we’re going to do is click on edit page and you’ll see again how the editor works quite similar to everything else, from the email and user creation to the opt-in, page Creation all looks quite similar.
There are different elements that you can add, simply drag and drop. Let’S say you want headline text, simply drag it with your mouse. Now you’ve got a new headline that you can modify two different sizes and different font styles.
There are also blocks so pre-made kind of blocks that you can drag and drop rather than starting from scratch. So if you want an opt-in form there, let’s go into features because there are a range of different feature blocks that you can add such as this four column, one let’s scroll down somewhere around here and let’s see if we can drag it to that section.
We’Ll just drop it and see where it goes yeah we usually you do have to add a section, and then, within that section you add that particular block. But this is what it looks like and you can modify it at different images, replace it.
If you do make a mistake, you can always undo it by clicking undo undo again, that’s gone. One thing that is lacking from, i guess my experience and from my usage is the lack of history or page revisions.
So there’s actually no history of you know the changes that we made. We can’t revert back to that last saved change or let’s say we want to go back a week and have that page use that page again, there’s no option for that.
Unless you know i’m missing something here, usually it is somewhere around the save button. But all there is, is this preview button save changes and exit at the top we’ve got. You know, undo redo a couple of settings right here which it’s not located at.
We can also add pop-ups and dedicate pop-ups for it for that particular page and then view it in mobile or desktop view. So again, yeah no page history. There. I think, that’s quite a downside. Sometimes i do want to go back and see what changes i made before, but that’s how their page builder works.
Let’S save changes and we’ll go and exit now to set the actual, funnel steps you can drag where you want it. Let’S say the sales page goes. First and then what they see after they actually click it go to the order form now in order to put those order buttons and make it all connect together.
It is quite similar to what i shared before: let’s go and edit the sales page once again, and this time we will go back to the actual button. Just like the opt-in, formal squeeze page, we can direct it to where we want we’ll click it once and then from here we can go to send form, show pop-up, open, url or next step url.
Let’S click on next step, url, because that’s what we want happening goes to the next step of that sales funnel logic and then we’ll click on save changes, exit, let’s go ahead and preview, the funnel step or page and click on the button that should take me To that order, form like you see right here, that’s how easy it is and there’s no coding required to copy and paste a certain.
You know short code, placeholder or html code to that location. But overall i kind of like how systems funnel work. It’S quite simple. There’S nothing much more to it than the bare essentials that you need.
Of course, there are automations that you can run and do advanced things and set some rules after someone, you know, takes an action, but in my opinion you can create a full-fledged sales funnel in one day, because it’s really easy to use, and that’s just my honest Opinion based on my own usage too one downfall with the funnel section, is: let’s say you go to order, forms and you add a new pricing plan, we’ll click on plus, let’s choose uh one shot and then this one right here, click on save all right.
So it’s added at this point. You feel like it’s everything’s saved but let’s say you’ve added your resources. You modified your automation, rules, everything on this page, you feel like it auto saves, but in fact it doesn’t what you need to make sure you do.
All you have to do is click on save sales funnel, and then it will save and that’s one thing to bear in mind and i think it could be uh fixed or updated so that it auto saves moving along. We’Ve got blogs.
What you can create with your free account is one blog and that’s more than enough, it doesn’t mean one blog article means one whole blog site, so you can see the site that i created and if i go to view the blog, this is what’s created right.
This is the template that i simply selected and all you need to do is add your blog articles. I’Ll show you how easy it is if we click on my own blog and then there are some blog posts right here, that’s really created.
Of course, i can delete all this, but let’s say you’ve got a new blog post. You click on, create a blog post and then add your title short description. The actual path or url choose a category, create it and then write your blog post.
In addition to posts you’ve got pages, this could be your contact page, your about page anything you want featured on your site. You’Ve also got categories. Let’S say: you’ve got marketing business mindset.
You can set those categories there you may be asking. Are these blog posts going to be seo friendly or search engine optimized? Well, if you go into any of your blog posts, you can actually go into settings and then under search engine optimization, you can set your title set your description, your keywords, the author, a social media image hide from search engines or not.
So if you want to make sure your page has the highest chance of ranking, you want to make sure you optimize these sections right here. If you want to create a blog, simply go back to blogs, click on create a blog and then name your blog.
Let’S say it’s called my blog and then set your blog domain name set a url path. Let’S say this is under articles or blog. You can name it whatever. You want choose a template. There are a few to choose from, but it’s more so i like this layout and then i’ll make modifications later.
So if you like this type of layout, where it’s more visual with images choose that you know, you can select it and then from the bottom. Click on create, and in just a matter of seconds, you’ve got your blog created.
All you need to do is delete any of the existing blog posts and articles at your own and then add your own pages, such as your about contact and other pages that you want on there i’ll view, the blog that we just created.
So you can see exactly what it looks like here. It is, and one thing to note with your free plan is that it shows powered by system.io. That is one thing to note and a caveat with the free plan and, while we’re on that note, when you use system to send out your emails, your subscribers will see that sent by system or powered by system at the footer of every email.
Next up, you’ve got automations for more advanced functionality, so with system under automations, you’ve got rules and workflows. The difference is with rules, it’s a simple. If this, then that, whereas with workflows, you can do a whole lot more and a whole lot more complex kind of workflows, i’m on the roles page, if we click on, add a rule, you can see the options that you’re given a trigger when this event happens.
Let’S say we’ll click on plus when a tag is added. Let’S say we add that newsletter tag. Then what do you want happening after? We click on the plus under action. We want them to subscribe to a campaign and we can choose a campaign.
My email campaign and then save the rule so then that all happens on the back end workflows, on the other hand, is going to give you a lot more options in terms of what you want happening. The actions even things like the decisions that are made in this example, i’ve got if someone clicks on this email or clicks.
A link from that email, which was this email, called how to record video podcasts and interviews, apply a tag called podcasting. This means that they are interested in podcasting and then i can send something related to that subject.
So what i want happening next is wait one day and then send my email called podcasting resources, and this will include resources and links to podcasting sites and tools. And then, after that, wait seven days and see if a person clicked on a link from this podcasting resource email.
If yes, then send that podcasting course recommendation, let’s say i want to promote a product of my own or as an affiliate. I can do that with that extra promotional email or if they did not click on that link, remove them from that podcasting, email, segmentation or in this case, a tag.
So you can do something as complex as this or as simple as you want it to be, but that option is there: if you want to create those types of automations moving on you’ve got products and sales with physical products.
I would say that system isn’t the best for selling physical products. If that is your aim, because they don’t have an option to create that kind of e-commerce store like shopify, where customers can add to cart and then browse around shop around add more products to their cart and then check out.
I don’t see an option for that. Under funnels or anywhere else, i did try, but you know maybe i’m missing something, but it’s not very obvious. Perhaps they don’t even have it. I even looked up their systems website to see if they have that feature, but it’s not really something that it is aimed for.
In my opinion. So if you are a physical product seller, i think it’s best just to stick with the well-known ones such as shopify. With that said, i won’t be covering physical products, because i know many of you are digital product sellers.
But let’s move on you’ve got coupons here where you can create your coupons. You got your orders transactions where you can see a list of all your orders, all the transactions, so things like that. You’Ve got subscriptions as well, where you can see the transactions in terms of subscriptions, but we’ve got affiliate invoices and courses, which is one thing you want to make sure you do if you are selling your online course.
If we click on add a new course. That’Ll bring up these settings where you set all your settings and from there you set up your modules and set up your lectures or your lessons. So you click on add module.
A module is something like this. We’Ve got introduction as a module and then a lecture in this case or a lesson is within that module. So if you want to add a new lesson, let’s say under introduction, you click on, add lecture, let’s say demo and you can drip feed it.
Delaying it select a page template. Let’S say this one right here or you can duplicate the last one. Let’S click on save that will take you to the actual lecture page and then you can modify the lesson based on your actual lesson.
Once that is done, we’ll click on save changes and then exit under introduction. You will see that new lesson appear to show you what the actual course page looks like from a student’s perspective. This is what you see.
You’Ve got the introduction. The welcome you’ve got module one. You know i just added this one right here: module two, but you got these different lessons that they can look to go through. Uh take the lesson and then let’s say we mark the welcome as completed and now that’s completed in terms of modifying this actual course site.
There’S not much flexibility there. I think you can only change the colors, so i chose black and that’s the branding that it’s given me in terms of the header. There you’ve got the different buttons you can head to course settings and from there you can then go back change things like your theme.
As i said, to the color matching your brand change, the main font. You can manage students by going to products and sales. Again then, going to students – and you can see the progress of each student all listed here, going to an individual student seeing where they are enrolled into you’ve got productivity 101.
You can revoke access by clicking on dismiss and adding particular courses. If you want to do so, let’s say digital marketing for beginners give them full access. Click on add, there’s also affiliate programs.
So if you do want to set up your own affiliate program where you’ve got affiliates promoting your courses or your products, you can set it up all right here, which i won’t cover. But this is an option if you are looking for a online course platform or also an online business platform or tool with affiliate program integration.
What i want to run through now are the actual settings. So if you go under your profile, click on settings. Some of these settings you want to make sure you modify and complete so you’ve got your profile settings account.
Settings as well. You’Ve got payment gateways, you have to make sure you integrate either your stripe or paypal account under mailing settings. There are a couple of advanced options. Let’S say you want to use sendgrid.
You can add your api key here. So, rather than system sending your emails on your behalf using their ip addresses and servers, you can use sendgrid, which is a service that does pretty much that you can edit your double opt-in, confirmation, email and also your sender.
Email address, send a name. These are the defaults, so i recommend you add those because by default, these aren’t added one big one is custom domain. So if you want to use your own www yourdomain.com, this is where you can go ahead.
Click on add domain, add that domain name and then follow this article right here to set up your custom domain and speaking of integrations. One great thing of system is that it integrates with zapier, allowing you to then integrate thousands of other apps.
So you can see the zapier page right here and the integrations that you can do things like activecampaign or podia or facebook leads uh shopify integrate with slack or airtable. And that’s another thing.
I look for in general with platforms whether it integrates with zapier, because that then opens up a whole new world to all these apps and workflows, making my business more streamlined now for the big verdict.
Should you sign up for system? Should you switch over from your existing platform to system and whether you should cancel all those multitudes of different tools and systems and just go with system? The short answer is: there’s no one-size-fits-all and i’m not here to basically tell you to switch over and cancel all your subscriptions and tools and go with system.
I’M basically here to inform you educate you on this tool, as you have seen in this tutorial, but what i want to share with you are some pros and cons. I’Ll read it out to you. Let’S start off with cons the first con, especially for my use with email marketing in particular, is that it’s quite basic in terms of email segmentation.
You can’t really segment your email list based on different filters. What would have been a lot better is to have that segmentation and advanced, searching and filtering straight or right within that email, marketing newsletter that you’re creating now, because it is an all-in-one system and you are reliant on whatever that system or platform provides to you.
You can’t really modify or make any flexible changes as you would with something like wordpress with wordpress. You can modify things you can get a developer in and make anything uh. You know, modify anything you want based on your look, your fill and how you want want.
Your site to function so with system. You are stuck with the range of templates that they have and you can’t modify things like the transactional emails. Unless you know again, i am missing something.
You can’t modify the actual course or membership portal. You can make some minor adjustments like the brand colors and the fonts as you saw, but you can’t make any other changes in terms of modifying the actual layout of that membership portal.
Another con. But it’s not really a con for me because i’m not a physical product seller, i’m not really a drop shipper or any of that sort is the lack of e-commerce integration. So you can’t do things like adding things to cart and then letting your customers check out and then having all that in one.
So then they don’t need to purchase your products individually. Another con is most of the templates are directed towards that direct response. Kind of offer right, if you are selling that one product and you want to sell that one product it’s made for that, so you can be a pro as well, especially if you sell digital products and another con.
While we’re on the subject is that brand consistency in terms of the templates from sales page or more so from the opt-in form to the sales page to the upsells? There’S, no, you know coherent kind of template or matching template that you can use the profile of that everything else is quite minor and things that can be improved on rather than the actual functionality of it now onto the pros.
The first pro that i see is the ease of use, the intuitiveness and the simpleness of system. It’S a lot more simpler than i thought i thought when logging in i’d be inundated. You know overwhelmed with all these features that it does.
You know promise on the landing page, but, as you start using system, you’ll see just how easy it is to use, and as i mentioned, you can pretty much create a full-fledged funnel in one day. Another big advantage – and one i already mentioned – is that there is a free plan.
So if you are just a beginner you’re doubling into online business online marketing, getting your first course up. There’S that option there and you can build up to 2000 contacts with unlimited amount of students for your online course and if you’re, just starting out one blog, is enough.
One course is enough, and if you are making sales from your course and your blog, you know you are more than ready to upgrade to that 27 per month plan, which is that next one above that free plan. Another pro of system is because it is all hosted for you, you don’t need to worry about things like plugins and themes and updating them, maintaining them, because that can be time consuming.
If not even you know something that you may not understand how to do, which can lead to a vulnerable website open to things like malware attacks and hackers. I’M not saying it’s 100 foolproof, but that’s one less thing to worry about.
As i mentioned, system isn’t a platform that is right for everyone, but i would say it is a great option if you are a digital product seller, an info product creator and one who basically sells virtual goods at this point, if you’re still hesitant about system and Whether it’s right for you, i would suggest to simply sign up for a free account, there’s nothing to lose play around with the tools play around with setting up your pages and your sales funnels.
Creating your courses, you know, there’s nothing to lose. You don’t need to sell anything right now if you’re not ready, all right that pretty much sums up my review of system.
