Offline Consultant Toolkit Description

The Offline Consultant Toolkit is a website package developed by Chris Endres, a well-known offline marketer. This toolkit comes with everything you need to put up your own professional website. It also includes various ads, graphics, follow-up material plus a guide to help you get started and bring in clients for your offline gold business.

Offline Consultant Toolkit Detailed Overview

Over the last 2 years, the offline gold concept has become one of the most popular ways of generating income ever since Andrew Cavanagh introduced it to the public. The concept of offline gold is to take your Internet marketing knowledge and offer your services to offline businesses.

Most of these brick and mortar businesses have no knowledge of marketing online, so they are eager to find someone to do the work for them – building their websites, writing salesletters, setting up autoresponders, optimizing their site for the search engines, etc. These business owners are also running their business so they have no time to learn or do these tasks which positions you as an expert.

Although the offline gold concept can make you a lot of money, the challenge is in getting started. Chris Endres attempts to solve the problem with his Offline Consultant Toolkit. With his toolkit, offline gold marketers can simply use his templates to set up their own professional site and start bringing in prospects to their marketing funnel.

The package comes with 3 pre-configured rebrandable sites and 5 alternate graphic headers. It is a self-install package in which you change around the content and replace the site structure with your personal links. The site has 7 pages – the main page, lightbox, email metrics, contact us, privacy, Aweber thank you page and the Aweber conformation page.

The main page, contact us, privacy and Aweber pages are self-explanatory. The lightbox and email metric pages are just articles about email marketing and information about marketing online. I found the content on these pages very basic with no personal touch. The overall design of the sites is similar to business templates you see everywhere and come with your typical business stock photos. I think these designs really make you look unprofessional.

You also get a 3-part follow up sequence which you plug in to your autoresponder sequence to follow up with your prospects. I went through these follow up messages, and I have to say I am very disappointed. These sequences offer no value, are very impersonal and do not do a great job of selling the prospect. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was written in a hurry as an afterthought.

Inside the package, you’ll find videos that help you edit and rebrand the templates you get. You also get 2 PDF reports – one questionnaire, and an outline of Chris’ services and his price for each. I think the pricing report is very helpful to people who want ideas of what services to offer and how much to charge but this is the only thing I found valuable in the toolkit.

Note:  If you're on IM Report Card because you're looking for a way to make money online, then you should check out our top recommendation.  It's the best method we've found that anyone can use to earn income online.  Click here to learn more!

Offline Consultant Toolkit Reputation

Overall, I think the Offline Consultant Toolkit by Chris Endres is a poor package. The concept is great, but it looks like everything was pieced together by hiring outsourced writers and customizing existing business templates. In my opinion, you can create your own quality website, add a personal touch,and write better marketing pieces to get clients. If you’re serious about the offline gold business, take the extra time to work on your site and present yourself so your clients take you seriously.

Very useful framework

I adapted this framework for a local computer repair business that I help run. It definitely cut the development time by a lot. There's a lot of templates included, a lot of which seem kind of bloated. But that's fine since you're always going to need to trim/modify these things for your specific market. A lot of this stuff is fairly universal too, and I was able to successfully adapt a lot of the material for my marketing campaign on online classified ads and offline flyers. So this is definitely a good tool for your toolbox if you are driven and already have a general plan of action for your offline business. The price is fine since I made back the cost in less than 2 days after launching my campaign.

Great product, but price is too high

I ordered "Offline Consultant Toolkit" because I needed to create a dedicated support website for one of my offline businesses, and I must say that I was happy with this product's quality. Firstly, the provided website tools were easily editable, as I created a unique website design without any problems. Moreover, some of the provided tools really helped me with the client support, for example, the provided "Autoresponder" script was working great and hadn't caused a huge load for my hosting. And finally, I got full support from the author itself, so I was able to ask questions about website development. To sum up, I can really recommend "Offline Consultant Toolkit" as a good kit for offline consultants, but in my own opinion, price for this kit is too high, as I had to pay $197 for it.
