Welcome to my Coloring Profits Volume 2 review. I saw this was being released today so I wanted to take a look and see if it really lives up to all the hype…
Product Name: Coloring Profits Volume 2
Owner: Simon Lim
Price: $7 + two upsells (additional designs + monthly membership)
My Verdict: Could be worth a try
Adult coloring books? Really?
Apparently, coloring in has become popular with adults as a way to relax. On the sales page for Coloring Profits Volume 2 they have this image of a tweet:
I actually visited that bit.ly link and it really does lead to that article on thestreet.com. So it’s really true that Walmart did sell $100 million worth of coloring books to adults in the first half of 2016. So this is a big new market. People love this stuff.
What is Coloring Profits Volume 2?
It enables you to create your own adult coloring books, and comes with the following:
- 25 Intricate Done For You Mandala Designs
- 25 Phenomenal Done For You Pattern Designs
- All Supplied as JPG and PNG Files
- 4500 x 4500 size (15″ x 15″)
- Professional 300 dpi quality
All this for only $7? Sounds great, right? Watch out, though, because they will try to get you to buy more stuff.
Who is Simon Lim?
I did a bit of a search for him and found out that he has been a very active member of the Warrior Forum, an online community of internet marketers. He’s been a member there since 2009. I found his profile and clicked the link to show all threads started by him. There are 45, and here’s a screenshot of a few of them:
As far as I could tell, these mostly seem to be “make money online” products. It seems that Simon Lim is a serial product creator. He even released 2 other products in September 2016 alone! That doesn’t in itself mean his products are bad quality. It just means he is constantly out to make money from any new opportunity he can.
One thing really worries me, though…
As part of my search, one site mentions a website called simonlimonline.com. When I tried to visit that URL, I got a warning from my ISP:
So it seems that Simon Lim may have something nasty on his website…
Anyway, back to Coloring Profits Volume 2…
Watch out for the upsells!
Upselling is pretty much standard when it comes to internet marketing. You buy the first product at a low price, then they try to sell you additional products for extra money. Luckily, the upsells on Coloring Profits Volume 2 are nothing too crazy, but I just wanted you to be aware of them. Here is a diagram showing the sales funnel:
So you will pay just $7 for the main product, then you get offered a 2nd product for $17, then a 3rd product for $19.95 per month.
What are these extra products?
In the 2nd product (the 1st upsell), you just get more of the same. You get another 50 of each of the mandala designs and pattern designs. The 3rd product (the 2nd upsell) is actually a club where you get another 75 of each of the mandala designs and pattern designs every month. You also get access to some training which covers:
- How To Easily Create 1000s Of New Designs
- Success Beyond Amazon
- Themed Coloring Book Ideas
- Best Places To Get Stock Photos
I can’t help but wonder if all this should actually have just been part of the main product. Of course, that would have meant charging extra for the main product, so fewer people would buy it. the other option would have been to show all options up front, so people can select which products they wanted. Again, this would not have worked so well from a marketing perspective. Welcome to the world of internet marketing, folks!
I hope you found my Coloring Profits Volume 2 review helpful. If I have not covered everything and you have some unanswered questions, please post them in the comments section below.
