Welcome to my Simple Sites Big Profits Review!
If you’re concerned about this program – then you’ve landed in the right place.
I’m going to give you my personal experience as a Simple Sites Big Profits member.
UPDATE: I am no longer a member of this program.
This course also goes by the name Simple Sites Bootcamp.
The point is I actually paid for the product – so all l I’m trying to do is – help you make a more informed decision before you spend money – that you don’t have to lose.
A Real Simple Sites Big Profits Members Review
Disclaimer For A Real User: This Simple Sites Big Profits Review has been developed by a real user. It was not only thoroughly used and researched by my own personal experience. Also any other research, opinion, testimonials, and public records are available to you online. Any final conclusion that I arrive at is based on my own judgement. I’m here to help you make a more informed decision. Ultimately, you’ll have to decide if this product or service is for you or not.
Full disclosure here, I wanted to start off by saying – this review is not based on research, fluff, theory, or an opinion.
As you can see above, I’ve actually purchased this course – and no longer have access to it.
Apparently, after you’ve exhausted your time, access to the course is no longer available to you.
Therefore, the information that you’re going to learn is based on my personal experience – which also happens to be my personal opinion.
I’ve been asked a ton of questions over this affiliate marketing dudes review – so I had to come back and update it.
After a full year of no course access – and becoming a member – I don’t recommend this program – in fact, I don’t recommend anything Marcus Campbell sales…- I have nothing against the guy, its just my personal opinion.
I’ll explain everything that I actually experienced dealing with this Marcus Campbell guy.
What Is Simple Sites Big Profits?
Okay, Simple Sites Big Profits course was confusing from the jump. I have to admit that Marcus is certainly a sales charmer.
When I purchased this product, I thought I was buying into an affiliate marketing training course plus live 16 weeks of training.
So, if you’re wondering the same. Please understand that is not what you will be purchasing.
After 16 weeks your coaching and course will not be accessible.
In other words, if you purchase this Simple Sites Bootcamp course, you have 16 weeks only of live affiliate marketing training.
The training happens once a week. So, technically, you’ll get about 16 days of live training – which in my opinion, is not enough training for a beginner.
Furthermore, the training is supposed to be an interactive experience, where Marcus supposedly takes you by the hand and hand picks your high-ticket niches – he is also supposed to show you what to do.
That is not what happened.
Marcus Campbell Is A Great Sales Charmer
Look, I’m not saying that the products which Marcus sales is a scam but, he certainly has tricky sales talk.
I personally found a lot of his sales talk to be confusing .
In fact, he is so skilled at closing deals that he may have eliminated the need for vehicle salespeople.
He frequently utilizes the phrase “High Ticket Niche,” which I explain in the article’s section on its drawbacks. This is one of his most perplexing phrases.
Marcus does, however, organize weekly live webinars that are available on Wednesdays at roughly 2 PM CST.
During those live calls Marcus gives a group of people – at least an hour or two of live training.
After the live training, he opens up the call for everyone to ask any questions or concerns that you may have.
At first, Marcus seems to not leave anyone’s concerns unaddressed. But, as you continue going to the live classes you may notice that your questions has never been answered.
You’ll also have access to a training platform with Marcus’s previous training videos, which I discuss further in the cons section, in addition to the live weekly calls.
To be honest, I’ve had problems with this product from the beginning, which is just one of the many reasons I don’t suggest it.
Who is This Marcus Campbell Affiliate Marketing Dude?
You can occasionally start to wonder just who these gurus are. Marcus has led a fascinating life, I must say.
Marcus was bullied as a child, which is why he has always aspired to work in business. During that time, he was not thinking about an online business, where they market digitally but, something local.
So, he somehow evolved into a magician throughout his time in high school.
Also, he found it amusing and entertaining to mesmerize the bullies and their girlfriends while reading their brains.
He was indeed so skilled at magic that he turned it into a semi- successful business. He performed in restaurants before moving on to kid shows, churches, and educational institutions.
He didn’t become wealthy from his magical ways, but he did enjoy them.
Over the course of two years or more, Marcus kept performing his magic. And if you were to question my opinions, I would say that he is still skilled in his field today.
In any case, he then turned his attention to creating websites and improving their search engine rankings.
He eventually came to the conclusion that the verbiage of his advertisements is what gives them their marketing power.
The goal is to simply create an advertisement that people would respond to, highlight the advantages, and motivate them to take action.
Marcus had at last achieved success.
He found that creating websites with the ideal keywords and copywriting was effective, so he sought to spread the knowledge.
Years later, this is how he got to the point where he makes so many training videos and courses.
Oh, and by the way in the image above, I surprised myself by ranking right below Marcus website.
Although, Marcus shows great ways to find keywords, – in the end it still takes a bit of practice. And then later on using my main keywords, I showed myself in position 1, page 1 of Google.
Out of all the blogs on Google’s first page I have the lowest Domain Authority.
What is so surprising about this is that this website at this time, only has 21 articles on it, and I have never built backlinks.
So, I have come to a conclusion that it takes more than just finding a great keyword.
You must optimize your post, format it properly, and try your best to answer the query of the keyword.
Unforunately, Marcus does not show you how to do that in his course.
How Much Does Simple Sites Big Profits Cost?
However, I’ve seen the course cost as much as $1277 for a one-time payment. Or 4 payments of $497.00.
Then I noticed it was priced at $297 as well.
And I read on someone else’s blog that this poor woman paid $2000, but she felt like he had tricked her with his big promises.
So keep reading to make sure this is for you.
What Are The Pros And Cons Of Simple Sites Big Profits?
As you may already know, every offer has pros and cons.
So, the best way to decide whether to buy a product that can help you make money is to weigh the pros and cons. If the cons outweigh the pros, I would keep searching elsewhere.
Pro #1 – Key Word Research
Marcus is great at doing keyword research.
In fact, he’s the first marketer I’ve ever seen fully clarify how he finds keywords.
This is because, he was using Ahrefs. A keyword tool that has many advanced options that more skilled bloggers typically use.
Ahrefs alone costs $99.00 per month, which is good for small businesses or hobby websites.
By the way, if you decide this tool is for you, I noticed that Ahrefs is offering a 2 months free promotional offer – the catch is that, you must sign up to a year plan.
Learning how to dig deep for keywords is one of the keys to getting visitors to come to your website.
By using his keyword research methods, which he shows the majority of it on his YouTube channel – it’ll help you learn how to find many keywords for your niche – even if it’s competitive.
I just wanted to be very clear here. Even though Marcus teaches you how to find keywords, I don’t recommend his course.
Instead, watch his YouTube channel because, he does provide a ton of keyword research training there.
In fact, you can go directly to Ahrefs and take their free SEO course and learn how to get organic traffic yourself.
Also, if you need to find keywords on a budget you can give websites like answerthepublic.com a try. I believe they give you at least 3 free searches a day.
Or give questiondb.io a try, they give you up to 50 searches free.
The only negative aspect about the websites above is that they don’t show how much traffic volume the keyword potentially receives.
Pro# 2- Tons Of Information To Learn
Although, you might find some golden nuggets within the course, it’s hard to understand. The training portal has a ton of glitches. Some videos work, while other do not.
Each video that does work, you can expect anywhere from 35 minutes to 2 hours and 15minutes worth of training.
He’ll show you places that you can go affiliate with, such as companies on offervalut.
Pro #3- He Teaches Over 7 Different Ways To Get Traffic
If you’ve never started a blog before, you might not understand how long it takes to rank a website and get people to visit it.
This will also depend on the niche you choose.
SEO takes a long time before you see any results, no matter what you do. A lot of marketers think they can game the search engine but, eventually Google can penalize your website.
So, you do not want that.
In fact, it feels like such a long time, that you’ll start to think you’re doing something wrong, but if you’ve taken a good blogging course, and followed what they taught, – then you’re likely doing your job correctly.
It’s just part of the SEO waiting game.
Experts usually call this the “Google Sandbox.”
They believe that the sandbox effect can last anywhere from a few months to 2 years.
Anyhow, Marcus shows you over 7 different ways to get people to visit your website -which also can be found for free online.
Here are few ideas: Pinterest, Quora, Medium, update and improve your website content, YouTube, TikTok, or Reddit.
Cons #1 – High Ticket Niche Confusion
I think the way Mr. Campbell uses the phrase “high ticket niche” is a bit misleading.
You’d think Marcus has niches lined up that are actually high ticket – and he is going to share them with you.
That’s not the case.
During your live weekly training, you’ll be asked what are your personal interests or ideas are?
Marcus then takes your responses and throws out a random niche for you.
Not necessarily is the niche going to be high ticket niche though.
For instance, I told Marcus I had an IT degree, I’m a veterans wife, love to cook, save money, travel, and I had 10 kids.
Marcus’ niche for me was to start a YouTube channel but not to display my children.
What niche is that? The parenting niche or what?
And if I’m not displaying my kids which I didn’t plan on doing anyhow.
Then what do I talk about on my YouTube channel? I received no answers.
The reasoning behind these questions is a the parenting niche is too broad – and it has a ton of competition.
When it comes to starting a blog in a highly competitive niche, you must narrow niche down or it could possibly take you forever to get your website ranking well.
This also brings me to ask him “What about a blog?”
He never mentioned what I should start a blog on? I didn’t even realized he talked around the subject and moved on like he fully answered my question.
I later discovered in a different training, the reason, why he may have talked around it is because, Marcus is making people believe that you can make profitable money in a short period of time just by throwing a one page website up.
And without spending money additional money on things such as paid ads, there is no way, you can start a blog and make money overnight.
Either way, there is training over how to find a niche. A free way to learn how to find a niche is go over to Amazon and look at their categories – those are ideas for niches.
Search the Amazon best sellers so that you can see what people are buying.
The confusion that I experienced with Simple Sites Bootcamp is , I understood that Marcus would be hand picking the niche for us.
Needless, to say Marcus told me during that live coaching that he would help me find a niche after the meeting and he never did.
His famous line is to contact support, which I did, and I never got anywhere.
The point here is, if you decide to join his course because, you need him to help you hand pick a niche. That may not happen.
And, you may just find yourself going in circles. Site support, has some answers but, they do not have them all.
Either way, check out what this guy has to say.
Con #2 – He Doesn’t Return Phone Calls
According to his website, If you have any questions, you can call him using the number listed on his website.
I knew not to waste his time, but, I had a real question before I even purchased the product – well – because, I was that confused.
I called him at 1-800-893-0675 to ask questions in regards to his two products, Simple Sites Big Profits and Blog Profit Network.
I didn’t understand which product was best.
Of course, he didn’t pick up, so I left a voicemail.
Thus it should come as no surprise that he never called me back or responded to my email.
This is why I’m worried; if it happened to me, I can only image how many beginners have or has taken or will take this course and continue struggle.
First of all, if he’s not live, you’re probably not going to get a response from him.
I can appreciate the guy’s hectic schedule, but a short text or email would have been much appreciated.
My second concern, is I was not given a hand picked niche – and keywords research and niche picking was the only reason, why I decided to purchase.
With the Marcus training platform, I did discover a few specialized ideas, but it seems that I was just overanalyzing the procedure.
Either way, I later discovered that maybe Marcus meant a high ticket niche was when he upsold you expensive domain names.
These expensive domain names, are just random domains that Marcus has purchased overtime. He comes back and sells them to you – and says they are valuable.
By the way, he has them stored on one of his websites, which brings me to my next point.
Cons #3 – Domain Purchase from Domains.Blogprofitnetwork.com
So, during his live calls Marcus always encourages people to purchase a domain from the above website. He said they were priceless and would be profitable.
So, I did purchase a domain which cost me $100.00.
According to Marcus, we should be able to re-sell the domains located on that site for more than what we paid for it.
To answer your curious minds.
Yes, he shows you where to sell the domain name but, he doesn’t demonstrate how to resell it.
If you need to sell a domain name a free websites that you can try to sell your domains on are Godaddy, Flippa. Sell.Odys.Global.
Unfortunately, no one was interested in purchasing the domain name that Marcus sold to me in 2021, and the domain is still unpurchased in 2023 despite my attempts to use Odys.
Furthermore, after purchasing the $100 domain, Marcus mentions on the live call if anyone on the call today purchases a domain from his website domains.blogprofitnetwork.com for more than $500.00, they’ll get a niche blueprint.
Plus, an 1 hour call with him because the domains that cost over $500.00 are high ticket niches.
As a result, he keeps trying to sell you more and more items. You’ll find yourself fully lost before you know it.
Just Maybe that’s where the high ticket niche confusion comes in at?
By the way, I didn’t purchase the $500.00 domain.
In my opinion, his sales tactics are misleading.
Con #4 – Too many technical issues
I have a love-hate relationship with Simple Sites Big Earnings since Marcus’ training is actually quite helpful.
And his methodology is effective because all he really advises is choosing a non-competitive niche.
Like learning to crab, hydroponic gardening systems, etc., are examples of non-competitive niches.
In any case, I’m perplexed as to how his single-page websites generate such substantial revenue.
The training portal itself, his website, and his tools will give you a major headache, so let’s move on.
That’s the worst thing you can go through as a newbie.
We don’t want you to give up since you may become discouraged and lose motivation as a result, which is what we want to avoid.
There’s so many broken links within the training program that you’ll start to think that you’re getting scammed.
In addition to this, there’s material that I was told that I would receive and never did.
When I asked Marcus’s site support about it, it was not directly addressed.
To top all of the frustration off, I was double charged on a domain purchase that took about a week going back and forth with support before it was refunded.
In fact, I had to tell them I was going to my bank and that is when he decided to kick it into high gear with my refund.
Cons #5 – The Refund Policy Is Strict
This is unquestionably a drawback, I want to be as transparent as I can be.
No refunds are given.
Yes, Marcus does tell you this up front.
He’ll even tell you that you need to put in a lot of effort to make things work, and that’s true.
However, receiving a product that doesn’t function entirely as intended, is unacceptable.
Because there was no return, I knew taking this course entailed a significant risk. I was cool with it, but I wasn’t cool with a product that didn’t function properly.
Cons #6 – Customer Support Isn’t Continuous
From my understanding getting customer support or support period, for Simple Sites Big Profits isn’t a long term thing.
According to my Simple Sites Big Profits training dashboard, receiving support isn’t promised forever.
As you can see in the image below, I’m prompted to activate my support link.
When I activated the support link, it redirects me to Blog Profit Network, which is a program that I receive for free for the next 6 months only.
After that if I want to continue receiving support, and training I must commit to $77.00 per month.
Cons# 7- You Could Lose Access To The Training
I no longer have access to my training portal. I contacted support, and I have not received a response.
Is Simple Sites Big Profits A Scam?
Although, there’s some things that I don’t agree with – and I’ve had many technical issues.
I can tell you from first hand experience that Simple Sites Big Profits is not a scam. So, yes, high ticket niches are legit.
In fact, Simple Sites Big Profits has helped people in the past.
What Key Features Does Simple Sites Big Profits Offer?
Key Feature #1 – Pay Per Click Mastery Course
Surprisingly, Marcus shows you how to run paid Google Ads. The impressive part is he’ll break down how Google AdWords actually works.
And how you can use it to potentially make money using it.
Of course, you want to make sure you’re utilizing some sort of click tracking software before you attempt this traffic method.
However, if you never ran paid ads before, do keep in mind that you can lose a lot of money using this method.
Key Feature # 2 – The Live Weekly Webinars
Despite all the mishaps with this program, I do enjoy the weekly live webinars. Marcus, does offer his support to the best of his ability. During the webinars, you’ll learn methods that you may have not learned before. The guy has been doing this for well over 20 years.
Key Feature #3 – The Way He Teaches
Okay so, Marcus may not be the best software creators.
As you have learned I’ve experienced numerous tech issues. but, he does really well with video marketing. I would suggest just watching his YouTube channel. He teaches most of it there.
He also can deliver training to you in ways other marketers don’t. The way he breaks some of his information down just makes a lot of sense. I guess that is just the magician in him.
Our Review Of Simple Sites Big Profits
Simple Sites Big Profits Customer Support
For the most part the customer service is okay. There was a few times, where I felt like my question was not answered fully. If the support team, doesn’t know the answer – no one does.
However, the staff member Tina she is kind and doesn’t leave you hanging.
Instead, she’ll usually let you know that she’s trying find out more information for you, which I think is a great way to handle support.
Simple Sites Big Profits Ease Of Use
In my opinion, Simple Sites, Big Profits, should be re-organized in a more friendlier way.
I found it to be difficult to navigate through the training program.
It’s not the most difficult to use but, it’s also not the easiest to use.
It’s really dis-organized. So, the ease of use is shaky.
As far as, your personal data being at risk.
I don’t have that type of concern but, I’ve come across a few warnings where my computer software has warned me to not proceed.
When I see that warning I don’t proceed. Therefore, I’ve never experienced any personal information safety issues.
At the end of the day, any decent affiliate marketing training can be really effective. It’s not the training that will get you the results.
It’s your actions that will help you get the results. The training is a tool that helps you understand what you’re doing and it can help fill in the missing puzzle pieces.
Either way, I believe there’s other programs out there that will help you get started online without all the technical issues.
The technical issues alone can cause confusion.
Once a beginner gets frustrated and confused, they lose trust and end up quitting.
Should You Trust Simple Sites Big Profit?
This is a very tough question because I’ve experienced a ton of tech issues.
I haven’t received all the products that I was promised.
I forgot to mention that, when I joined Simple Sites Big Profits, I never received my logins, which I was supposed to receive within 1 hour, according to his website.
I had to contact support and let them know that I was still waiting on those.
In fact, many tools didn’t work.
Plus there is no refund option.
On top of all this Marcus will continue to upsell you into further products.
For example, you’ll need to purchase an autoresponder.
He recommends Aweber, if you sign up to them, you’ll receive his email swipes.
But, signing up to Aweber isn’t the issue because, they offer a free account for your first 500 subscribers.
The issue is, you definitely do not need an autoresponder right away unless, you have traffic to your website.
Then on the flip side, I enjoy learning some of the methods that Marcus teaches.
So, should you trust it?
Heck, that’s almost like buying a luxury car. All the features don’t work and there’s no refund or warranty. I’d say it’s a risk.
Simple Sites, Big Profits definitely is legit but, it’s a huge risk!
- Not to mention this but, it’s not the cheapest affiliate marketing training online.
- In my opinion, it’s not beginner friendly.
Making money online is a learned process.
For some it will take a lot of trial and error before you get the entire concept of how all this works.
- Also, the price that you invest into this course is definitely not worth it when there’s platforms out there with no tech issues at all.
The bottom line is, I don’t recommend any of his courses. But, of course you may still decide the opposite so, if that’s you.
How Does Blog Profit Network Compare To It’s Competitors?
Blog Profit Network VS. Simple Sites Big Profits
If I were to compare Marcus two products together.
I’d say that there’s mass confusion, ever since I purchased the high ticket niche product from the jump.
As a matter of fact, I’m not sure what exactly I purchased.
Therefore, I can’t confidently say what you’ll get if you purchase the Blog Profit Network by itself.
I do know that both courses has training videos, where it’s differs is that, Simple Sites Big Profits doesn’t allow you to comment or ask questions below the training videos.
Whereas, Blog Profit Network does.
- Simple Sites Big Profits also has more training videos than BPN.
In either case, Simple Sites Big Profits live weekly meetings are held on Wednesdays while Blog Profit Network is held on Tuesdays.
Although I’ve learned new skills on the live webinars I don’t know what the difference is between, the Tuesday live webinar and the Wednesday live webinars.
Frequently Asked Questions About Simple Sites Big Profits
Is there a payment plan?
Last time I checked there was a payment plan available.
If I start a payment plan can I pay off the balance at any time?
Yes, you can! Just contact support and they’ll let you know what to do.
Is there a refund option for Simple Sites Big Profits?
Marcus takes all his material, courses, and refunds seriously. You can not get a refund with this course. If you’re not okay with that, do not risk your hard earned money.
Final Thoughts Of Simple Sites Big Profits
If you read this entire post, first off thank you for taking the time to do that.
Secondly, as you’ve recently learned I have this confusing outlook about Simple Sites Big Profits.
On one hand, it does offer tons of valuable training.
I do believe you can learn from Marcus but, please be warned that you’ll be disappointed to discover that many of his tools within the training platform doesn’t work.
Then again! Maybe since I’ve warned you, you’ll have a better expectation.
Anyhow, there’s many broken links within the training platform and on the affiliate marketing dude website.
Another concern is that, you may not get all the tools, products or services that you were promised.
In fact, I’m still waiting on a PDF book that I was supposed to get.
Not the biggest issue but, heck it would have been nice to receive.
The bottom line is Simple Sites Big Profits would have been a really great training program if all the tools worked without errors. Therefore, I have many reasons why I can’t recommend this product.
Who knows maybe Marcus is working on it.
Any thoughts? Have you ever tried any of his programs? How was it? Please help us all understand! We’d love to hear from you too.
