Niche Socializer Description

Niche Socializer is a community networking software that combines all the latest web trends to create some of the best businesses online. This software helps you to create your own networking platforms that can really be used for social marketing. With the help of this software, you can create sites that have built-in forums, integrated business directories, sign-up features, several other application programs and much more just like the social networking sites like Facebook, twitter and so on so forth. What clearly demarcates Niche Socializer is its exciting ability to make money on your behalf.

Niche Socializer Detailed Overview

The software, Niche Socializer, was designed and created by a team commissioned by two excellent internet marketers, Andrew X and Steven Lee Jones. The main reason behind the development of this software was to produce and create a platform or a networking community of any niche. The makers of Niche Socializer, Andrew X and Steven Lee Jones, were very much aware of the potential of social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and so on with regard to social, niche, Viral and affiliate marketing. However, these sites could change the rules any time since the administrators were different, and so was the technology. In a quest to build a social networking software to enable social networking, this tech-savvy duo came up with their brainchild “Niche Socializer”, a software through which even a neophytes can create their own social networking sites with attractive presentations to gain profits.

Niche Socializer is awesome software that helps you create your own networking sites with the help of several different types of core modules that support flexible and powerful membership model like facebook and orkut. Depending upon the requirement, the membership levels can be decided and designed accordingly to gain profit. The best feature about this software is the recurring core module that helps in establishing continuous programs that are able to sell products to the same members on autopilot. This software also helps to monetize your own sites in your way so that you can own a steady stream of profit from it. Some of the monetizing options involve charging people to post advertisements, articles, videos and so on.

However, the release of the excellent software “Niche Socializer” is limited. Moreover, Niche Socializer charges extra fee for setting up more than three sites after the website is really made and purchased. Running this software becomes difficult for novices who do not have enough knowledge about domains and web hosting.

Niche Socializer Reputation

Niche Socializer is a well-known software within the online community. The same people who created the sensational Google Massacre and Google Ambush created this software, which certainly adds to its credibility. Unfortunately, places are very limited, and at this time, the Niche Socializer is completely sold out. However, you may add your name and email to a waiting list for updates on when it will become available again.

Pirated software

When Niche Socializer first came out, it was a pirated (stolen) software from phpfox. It took a few months for me to find out about this, when I did, I asked for a complete refund. They were in the process of changing the software because they knew they were caught and kept telling customers that they were upgrading the software. Their upgrade was not as good as the phpfox software. They also NEVER gave me a refund. I will never buy from Andrew X or Steven Lee Jones again.

Learning curve for beginner

It has everything you need to know including how-to lessons to set up a website w/ads & ways to monetize the site. But... all new programs have bugs, and they have a share. I was able to work around them, and support was not instant, but available. I started at almost the beginner level and this taught me the ropes of hosting and domain names to different types of advertising.

Lots of problems

Well at first look this software is interesting and has a lot. What I found was quite a few bugs in the software. I also tried, until I was blue in the face, to get the bugs fixed. It took countless emails to even get a response. Hopefully they have gotten better. They told me I was the only one experiencing the problems, but even their demo website had them. ? I have a couple of sites running the software, but I have not attempted to do much with them as I still have issues.

A Total Waste of Money and Time

I also purchased Niche Socializer and found out the hard way that their support desk is terrible. When they reply, it takes them 4 days to send the reply, but sometimes they just ignore your emails.

Because I learn better by reading and their sales letter stated that manuals and videos were included with the software, I purchased it. But I found our that manuals are not included. I was told that the manuals would be available at a later date, but it's been almost 2 months and I'm still waiting.

When I asked for a refund, my ticket was deleted. I had to go throughmy credit card company to get a refund, but since the bank has to givethem 60 days to respond, I have not received my refund. I asked for arefund almost a month ago and they have not responded.

Nothing But A Time and Money Waster

This is a REAL review!

NS is supposed to be used to build Social Network sites (which assumes high traffic), but even with only one person navigating the site (myself), it takes forever to load pages. (This could be because of poor PHP or MySQL database programming. )

Point #1

This script looks exactly the same as phpFox which is unencrypted and has an excellent support desk along with an active user forum.

I am not sure if phpFox is doing a deal with NS or if the script was stolen from phpFox. I don't know yet and have not yet contacted phpFox.

Point #2

The software would not run on the server I have been using for 8 years. The Niche Socializer team said that my web host is the problem and that I should use their expensive recommended web host (Which I Did).

It should be noted that I have never had a problem running "good" scripts with my existing host.

Point #3

My sites would not work on both name servers. They only work on 1.

For example:

Name Server works: http://www.domain.com

Name Server does NOT work: http://domain.com

When I submitted a support request about this, I never got a reply.

Point #4

Certain things would not work within the script. I would waste lots of my time reporting issues (bugs) to the support desk. I would wait days for a reply. Sometimes I did not get a reply until I demanded attention to the support tickets.

There was also certain instructions on the videos which would not (and could not) complete the task described. I would ask about this and again get no reply.

In most cases, my issues were not resolved properly and/or my questions were not answered in a way that would help me with my problem.

They would even give answers which did not actually answer my questions:

--

Example Question:

Q. At the moment, every page is a light gray.

How do I change the background color on all pages to white.

I think the quickest and easiest solution is to supply me with a white version of "main_back. gif".

Example of answer which is in NO WAY related to my question:

Sure, you can certainly install the ‘pure white’ style template we offer. Simply go to ‘Styles and Templates’ in your admin panel, then click on ‘Styles’. It should be in there to select. If not, click on ‘Install new’ under ‘Styles and Templates’ and it will be there.

--

Hellooooo, this is planet Earth to Niche Socializer :) LOL

Point #5

There is 4666 files within the script installation package. If I would ask how to change to change the layout of items on a particular page, they would not tell me which page to edit. Rather, they would say that it is a custom programming job (no thanks) which I can purchase for extra money.

So I would eventually find the file and edit it myself.

The point I am making here is that I know how to change code, but because they would not tell me which file to edit, it would take me a long time to find it. (more waste of time)

Good scripts supply manuals with detailed instructions about all this *basic* stuff!

Point #6

There is no manual. I like to read a manual instead of wasting time and bandwidth loading videos.

Point #7

The templates DOCTYPE declaration is XHTML Strict, but there are embedded styles within the templates which makes the code INVALID!

This is because in XHTML, you are not allowed to embed styles within the HTML - They must be declared in the stylesheet.

Because it would be a big job to completely fix all the templates one by one, I tried to change the declaration to transitional (in the header) but then the whole site would not display properly.

I submitted a support ticket about this but they say that there is no support ticket about this! (too hard aye?)

Instead of being grateful that I am wasting my life helping them to de-bug their script, it feels like I was annoying them.

Point # 8

I don't care about a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If the script does not work properly because it is full of issues, I feel they should give a refund.

I went over the 30 day guarantee. Maybe that's why they IGNORED my refund request lodged on the 25th of May 2009. There was simply no reply.

I asked what was the hold up with my refund request on the 1st of June 2009, mentioned the Australian Federal Police and at time of this writing, I have still not received a reply.

I feel they should issue a refund because the actual product is faulty and does not work properly. (For example, there is one RSS feed link that displays an error message instead of the RSS feed. After several replies to the support ticket, it still does not work. )

In Closing

They even closed my support tickets because I "asked" for a refund.

How Dare I?

Still no Refund!

Personally, I feel that a $1000 refund is a small price to pay for your reputation.
