Instastore is a new product from Neil Napier and Karthik Ramani that the creators say will allow you to create your own highly profitable ecommerce store.
What does the product offer?
Instastore is a brand new product that has been designed to allow users to make their own ecommerce store via the affiliate programmes of online stores such as Amazon and Alibaba Express. This is carried out via a simple keyword feature that allows you to search the various stores for products based around your chosen keywords (allowing you to use Instastore with almost any niche). There are a number of features that are included with Instastore that Neil Napier and Karthik Ramani says will help you to improve sales such as the ability to integrate Instastore directly with your Facebook tab page and popups which will allow you to capture information and provide details of special offers.
Not surprisingly, Instastore also comes with a number of tools to help you to manage your site including autoresponder integration, analytics and compliance pages.
At the core of Instastore however is using video marketing to sell your affiliate products. Neil Napier and Karthik Ramani have also included a number of additional products with Instastore, most of which don’t really tie in with the core product.
How does the product work?
The idea behind x is that by having everything in one place, it easier to manger. At least, this is what Neil Napier and Karthik Ramani seem to want to suggest.
The reality of Instastore is that this is a rather basic method of getting started with affiliate marketing products. You start out by creating your niche store, which you then drive traffic to (with Neil Napier and Karthik Ramani seemingly preferring Facebook).
Because your store is selling products as an affiliate, this then means that you make a small amount of money for each product that is sold.
What is the initial investment?
Neil Napier and Karthik Ramani offer 3 different packages for Instastore with each tier providing access to more of the features contained within the software.
They also allow you to have more stores running on Instastore. The three packages are a single store or “lite” license, a 3 store or “basic” license and finally a 10 store “elite” license. These are priced at $29.95, $34 and $37 respectively with all of the options coming with a full 30 day money back guarantee.
What is the rate of return?
There is plenty of talk in the sales material for Instastore about entering a $44 billion industry, however the fact is that there are no specific claims for how much you can make through Instastore. Personally, I wouldn’t have too high an expectation though.
At its core, Instastore is about building a passive income online and in theory this does open up the door to allow you to do this.
My problem with Instastore is that Neil Napier and Karthik Ramani talk a lot about going viral. This is problematic for me for a number of reasons. Firstly, stores are not really a medium that tend to go viral and whilst the videos may help with this, it is a long way from a dead cert.
The second is that even if stores were “going viral” all day, this is an organic process and there is only so much that you can do in order to help facilitate this. Unfortunately, I feel that Instastore overlooks this.
With all of this in mind, Instastore isn’t necessarily bad in so much as it does what is advertised. Personally, I just don’t see how what is advertised is viable.
