Herbal Biz Reputation

If you have been wanting to open your own e-commerce store but have been unsure of how to go about it then Herbal Biz may be worth looking into. I think it might be a little difficult to promote it online - but with the business card and marketing flyer templates it may be a good business to promote offline. The only negative I can see is that many of the products require the customer to become a member of a club - this may be a downpoint for some customers.

Herbal Biz is a nice start

I've been an Avon seller for a while over in my city. And what Avon sellers do is they promote and sell items through catalogs and online stores. This is basically what this biz opp is. Herbal Biz is a great start for anyone who wants to promote health and beauty products and make money for it. All you do is promote items and make fast money for it. As an Avon seller, I was making commissions for each sale I made, for example, if I sold a $40 item, I would make 15 percent, which was small yes, but it added up. With Herbal Biz, I make %50 for each sale, and the buyers come to me which is great. And for every person that I refer, I make $35. For each, referral that makes a sale, I earn 5 percent of what they sell. There are several ways to market your online store, Twitter, Yahoo, Google, and other types of community web pages. All you basically have to do is get traffic coming to the page and put a small amount of effort getting some web page layouts. Besides that it's very simple to earn money. This program also only costs on average $100 CAD. Upon purchase, you receive a domain name, full support from customer service, and a web page with over hundreds of health and beauty products. The only problem I've seen with this program is that for some item purchases you must be a member. In total, I've made $900 a month and I've been using it for about 3 months now, so the income is decent for not doing anything. A nice program, I recommend it.

Great unique site with a fine approach and support

This is a nice one really. After all the years of selling only online products/tech related/electronics products, I was really excited to something like this. With herb store. I like herbs myself, so I was comfortable to sell these. The idea of this site is that you pay them the membership fee of $79.95 and you get from them a full “package” of things that you need. You get some free tips, great customer support, which helped me several times, domain name plus web-hosting. This is really great, as they kind of give you a half-done herb shop to sell stuff. So mostly, all you do is promote the herbs. I have tried this one with several of my marketing ways to promote stuff. Mostly I tried to promote it with GoogleAdsense, which lead to very nice results, which really surprised me. Maybe these products are pretty rare at the “online market”, so it’s relatively easy to find buyers for this stuff. I was able to make $300 before “throwing” most of my time with this site for referral search. And since then, I was able to make another $95 from referrals, which is also fine with me. If you are interested to try something new, this site is for you.

Honest opportunity but not for me

Herbalbiz does what they promise and provide you with all the tools you need to open up your own herbal store. The commissions are very fair and I know several persons making good money off their herbal store.

Not me however, I was never good at running these type of projects so the fact that I hardly got my investment out is entirely

my own fault and not theirs. The support they give is top notch and they realy go the extra mile to help you out. I'm beyond saving though I suck at selling the stuff.

Still for those that have that type selling in their blood I can highly recommend them because you will be working with a great team of professionals in that area of expertise.

So they still get a B+ in my book.

Good site - great opportunity

I've never sold herbal products online before and was excited when I saw this opportunity because I thought it would be something that would be popular and easy to promote. I paid $80 for the membership and got a website with free hosting and a lot of great information. Included with the program are banners that you can use to promote the product. While I was customizing my site and figuring out how best to promote the products, I contacted the customer support center a few times and got some really great tips and advice. I was impressed with how accessible and helpful they were, as this is not always something that be counted on with other programs. Since I joined Herbal Biz three months ago, I have sold far more products than I expected. These items do truly seem to be popular items to buy online, and since I earn 50% commission on every product that gets purchased through my site, the money really adds up fast. I've been focusing on selling my products and haven't really tried to get referrals yet, but they do offer $35 for each referral that you get, so that's a great way to earn some extra money too. Overall, I think this is a great site and a great opportunity for those who are interesting in selling herbal products online.

Good biz but difficult to market online

I am currently using Herbal Biz and I have had no problems with them so far. The products are pretty good and the biz pays pretty well. When I first started I had a hard time getting traffic to view the site and get sales. It was difficult to really get the interest of people on traffic exchanges and ad campaigns in ptcs, google, or yahoo. In the beginning I had to change my pitch several times to try and make it more appealing for people to want to view the products. I started noticing sales around the holiday time. I had about 3000 page views and only about 3-5 sales which is ok. With the commission I was able to make profit and add credits to my links. I think this would've been difficult with little or no money and I wouldn't recommend this for people who have zero sales experience and very little money.

Best place for niche marketing

I have my own herbal organic garden and felt a need for an e store. Herbal Biz was the place I was waiting for. The hosting is simple and decent. I get regular visitors on my web page and a decent sales figure every month. The best thing about herbal biz is the traffic they generate for your web site at a very low cost. I was impressed by the cost effective services they provide without a glitch. They put a lot of back links from various similar sites on our web site which generates traffic for your website. This is something new for a beginner and worth trying, but for a pro internet user this site may not be useful.

A Good Program That Is Good For Some But Not For All

I do not know why some people are successful with Herbal Biz and others are not. Herbal is one of the few companies online that does what it claims. They do give you everything you need for your Herbal Biz website. Plus they have a wonderful support staff. If you call them with any question, they are there for you with an answer.

Unfortunately for me, even with their advise, I could not make a go of it. I just could not get the traffic to my website, let alone buyers.

I know people who have done well with them. I was just not lucky enough to be one of them.

No Conversions Yet

The stores from Herbal Biz look very legit but they do not convert at all. I bought Herbal Biz and set up 4 different stores, this was three months ago and I still have not made a sale. I got a keyword rich domain name but it was a .INFO and it is not ranked so I guess that could be why. I posted a few articles to Ezines and Go Articles linking to my stores, I get about 10 visitors on each site every day, but I have never had an actual conversion which is why I am very disappointed.

A Great Site

I am currently using Herbal Biz and I am fairly impressed with this program. Also I been using this program for almost a year now.

The herbal products are very salable and I have no problem selling it. The commission is very good, but I wasn't able to earn 100-900 dollars per day. However, I managed to make 50 dollars or so per day and I got paid a few times already.

The tools that are on Herbal Biz were super helpful to me. It helped me to become successful at selling online herbal stores and other things as well.

Moreover, the support I get on this site is really amazing. They help me out every time with positive attitude.

In conclusion, I give this site a B. I would recommend this to everyone.

2-3 sales a day

I have advertised many online stores before, but never anything like Herbal biz. I have to admit that at first I was very nervous about spending $79 on something I knew nothing about, but I was desperate for cash so I went for it anyway. Now I am very happy I made the choice to purchase Herbal biz, my online store makes at least 2 sales everyday. I have chosen to advertise my online store through the acne and facial products niche and it has been working well. I usually get 110-125 uniques everyday and that brings me in 2-3 sales everyday.

A lot of work.. now automated.. so worth it

I purchased the Herbal Biz package because I wanted to try something new. I had never promoted an online store before and I was doing craigslist advertising at the moment. I had some money to invest so I bought this among many other products that had reputable reviews on Internet Marketing forums. Once I bought it I set up my online store and I did A LOT of SEO research and work to advertise my store. I was promoting the natural weight loss products and so I spanned and purchased many articles related to the weight loss niche. I uploaded the articles to directories, put the spanned articles on my blogs which I had made the day before and I was indexed in 48 hours. Now two months later I have made only 5 sales and I guess that is okay because it is all automated.

Honesty

 
 
 
I am amazed at how the administrators of this site attract visitors

I am amazed at how the administrators of this site attract visitors. Their methods are pretty result-oriented. I hosted some of my own developed products on herbalbiz and got a very good response within a very short time. I also earned commissions by referring this site to prospective buyers. The tutorial/ guide provided by herbalbiz is good and taught me how to use google, twitter, etc. to generate sales. I have recently received a business card template, a marketing flyer template, and web banners and buttons once I registered with herbalbiz for around $80. I would recommend this site to people in business of herbal & beauty products.

Awesome long term niche to invest in!

Herbal Biz is a unique opportunity that I read about on many IM forums that complemented the biz opp as the next big thing. I paid the slightly high price for the membership, but at first I was pretty happy with it because of the awesome website they give away and the free hosting. I was having a problem with the hosting at first, but customer support helped me out and told me it was a common problem with people not familiar with the hosting. It got fixed in under a day. I have been promoting my sites with many backlinks and organic traffic and I am getting over 500 unique visitors a day with my website on the second page of google. So far I have made over 300 sales. I take half commission for everything I sell, which is very lucrative! My earnings from the Herbal biz niche have been increasing every week. I would definitely recommend this membership to anyone who is looking to see results quickly.

'Frustration' doesn't even begin to explain my experience with this!

I actually signed up to this biz opp after quite a few favorable reviews I found on imrc, but since signing up I've been very frustrated with my whole experience with HerbalBiz. Right from what was promised on the sales page all the way through to customer service, they haven't exactly made my ride as smooth as possible.

I'm doing my best to stick with it as I believe there is an opportunity to make money here, but boy has it been a struggle. (Can anyone tell me if refunds are available - this is also why I'm 'sticking with it' as it's not clear anywhere whether refunds are available).

My first issue is the fact that there are NOT more than 100 products to offer. There are 50 odd! I've emailed support more than once requesting where all the other products are and they're not coming back to me with an answer.

Also, you can only customize your store website to a very, very small degree.

The demo store you see before you sign up... take a very close look at that, as that's pretty much how you're website has to look. Same color scheme and the rest of it!

I mean c'mon! Are you kidding me???

Just those two issues right there are what make this particular opp so frustrating.

If you can't differentiate yourself from other marketers taking up the biz opp how are you meant to stick out?

On the domain name alone... I don't think so!

Furthermore, the support is as close to awful as I've ever experienced.

I never like knocking support teams, because I know it can be a busy and demanding job at times, but when you send 3 messages without a response for days... I'm sure you can get the picture by now.

I was really enthusiastic before I signed up, up until day two, when I pretty much felt left all alone in the ocean without a paddle.

But hey... I'm still part of the opp, so I'm still gonna do something to make things happen (unless they can offer me a damn refund!)

My advice would be to think very carefully before signing up.

Given the chance to do it all over again... well... it's pretty obvious that I wouldn't.

Good opportunity

I sold products through HerbalBiz for about one year and it was a nice extra income but I personally couldn't turn it into a more substantial income. I'm sure this would have been different with more marketing dough. It was very valuable to me in the fact that I was able to work for myself on a part time basis, gained confidence in creating a new income stream, and in gaining experience in a different form of web sales. Monthly, my commissions totaled anywhere from $100 - $450 monthly with very little prior sales experience.

I wished I would have known beforehand that the customization of the website was limited to products offered. But, that customization of the product offering was a very good thing for me as some of the product lines weren't to my liking and I could easily remove them. Stats were easy to see and the site itself was easy to navigate.

I learned a lot with HerbalBiz and grew my confidence in earning an income for myself and creating a new stream of income rather than relying on "traditional" work where your pay, hours, and work/life balance can be dictated to you by strangers. From my experience, I say it's a great start for those with a tight budget for a new income stream.
