Sociboom Review: Pretty Appearance Masks an Unconvincing Product
There’s been a lot of talk recently about Brett Ingram and Mo Latif releasing a new program that will help to leverage social media and drive traffic to your website or promotions.
‘SociBoom’ is the name and they say it’s going to bring you more targeted traffic than you would believe is possible.
Towards the end of August 2016, I started to get lot of emails asking about the potential of SociBoom. However, it wasn’t so much the launch itself that interested me…it was the fact that Brett Ingram and Mo Latif were behind the product.
I wanted to take a closer look at this one because history tells me that Brett and Mo haven’t always had the greatest of reputations when it comes to support or follow-through with their product claims.
Their most recent releases being: Video Sniper Pro, eCom Profit Machine Pro or Auto Mass Traffic didn’t do particularly well on the review front.
But I’m all for giving a new product a fair chance, so I was keen to take a look at SociBoom and find out if it’s a method that can actually benefit anyone wanting to drive traffic to their online promotions.
My First Impressions of SociBoom
The Sociboom’s website has a very fresh and slick look to it. The first thing you come across is the explainer video which focuses on how the popularity of online shopping has increased in recent times.
It’s a well laid out page with some very attractive benefit-driven hooks like unlimited free viral traffic, automated, newbie-friendly and passive money system being the points that stand out.
The content is well written, but there is definitely a focus on the billions that are being spent online and how you can profit at an insane level with SociBoom.
One area of concern for me is the testimonials for SociBoom. It would appear that the same people who provided testimonials for Brett and Mo’s previous products are also the testimonial suppliers for SociBoom.
On the face of it that doesn’t necessarily suggest anything suspicious, and most people wouldn’t be concerned. But I do wonder why. If I had a string of products to my name, I would try to get some fresh testimonials for each product.
I’m also concerned by the lack of contact or support details on the website. What if I wanted to ask the product owner a question before purchasing?
It’s also worth mentioning the scarcity tactics that suggest you have 90 mins to buy at the special price. It’s becoming commonplace to see these pressure tactics being used nowadays, but they are a pain.
Just in case you are interested in SociBoom, refresh your page and the countdown clock resets.
What EXACTLY does SociBoom do?
SociBoom is a cloud built software platform designed to leverage the traffic from “other” social media feeds and place them on your own Twitter feed. The objective being to position you as an authority on a niche topic.
Add the ability to mask your own affiliate links, and that’s your road to riches SociBoom solution.
The automation part of SociBoom kicks in when you pick the type of content you want to curate from Facebook, Instagram and Youtube. The software then automates posting that to your Twitter channel.
The technical part…
Sociboom scrapes the Internet and finds content in your niche. the idea is you mix what Sociboom has found with the sales orientated posts that you create and automate to run when scheduled.
Another feature is the follow – unfollow automation that you can set-up in the Sociboom members area. It’s hardly a revolutionary idea, and I know SociBoom isn’t the first piece of software to offer that.
IF you do decide to buy Sociboom you can choose either the 3 Site Lite Special normally $77/month or $27.95 during the launch offer, or the unlimited version at $97/month discounted to $29.95.
Are there any upsells with SociBoom?
Once purchased, you will come across 4 upsells for SociBoom:
#1 SociBoom eCom Edition allows you to instantly link into Amazon and eBay’s api product portal. It then generates mini sales pages from Amazon and Ebay, much like the type we see in all Amazon and eBay content plugins.
#2 Sociboom Max claims to 4X your traffic, yet it’s simply an image bank where you can use a cloaked affiliate link and schedule them to post – all apparently with just one click.
#3 Sociboom Elite is just like the Max upsell except this is an image bank of moving images to use in your posts. Again, all with one click.
#4 Sociboom Special – offers another type of animation to your sites. The new 2.5D parallax video, which are very nice to look at. As with all the other upsells it comes with templates to start with, but you can use your own images.
And it’s worth pointing out…all the upsells give you have 2 options to purchase:
Option #1 – a 3 site license.
option #2 – unlimited site license.
Is SociBoom all it claims to be?
I find the notion that SociBoom will allow you to curate posts, images and videos and place them on your own Twitter feed for profit as being an unsustainable business model.
Sure, SociBoom will certainly curate images and create lovely graphics that you can post on your Twitter feed and might make a sale or two from. However, I do not think the extreme earning claims are realistic.
There are also many similar products doing the rounds at the moment, and I wonder what will happen when the industry reaches saturation point?
It’s only been a couple of weeks since the launch date, and the first three or four pages of Google are filled with positively biased affiliate reviews. Unfortunately this is common nowadays as the product owners offer biggest prizes for the most sales. Be careful of who you trust.
My Final thoughts on SociBoom
I wouldn’t say that Sociboom is an out and out scam and there has clearly been a lot of effort invested in creating the program.
But I must say that if you buy SociBoom believing you will generate the kind of money and/or traffic they are suggesting, you could end up disappointed. It could also become a very costly investment if you buy the various upsells.
Yes, you could earn some money…but long term it’s definitely not a business model that I would run with.
- It’s good for filling up your Twitter feed with scraped content.
- It has a 30 day money back guarantee.
- Vastly overrated claims of potential income.
- Far too many upsells and downsells within the SociBoom program.
- It’s not a revolutionary system. People have been scraping social media to populate their own Twitter feeds for a long time now.
- It’s not a sustainable business model.
- You could end up spending a lot of money to fully test SociBoom’s claims.
