YLPersonalizedWebsite.com Review

YLPersonalizedWebsite

Overview:

This YLPersonalizedWebsite.com review hopes to provide as comprehensive a review as is possible.  It aims to highlight its pros & cons.  To conduct this interview I spoke with Elizabeth.  She was a delight to talk to in learning how YLPersonalizedWebsite worked and what it offers to its customers!

Cost:

YLPersonalizedWebsite has 3 different pricing tiers, Standard, Gold, & Diamond levels.  They have monthly and annual payment schedules available.  When paying the monthly rates, they also charge a setup fee for each level.  This fee is waived when paying annually.  This is what their pricing looks like:

Standard Gold Diamond
Monthly $19.99 $24.99 $49.99
Annually $159.00 $199.00 $350.00
Setup Fee $40 $45 $109

By paying monthly for the Diamond plan your first year would cost you $708.88, which is by far the most expensive website I have reviewed.  If you pay annually, you save more than 50% on your total cost of the site.  If you plan on purchasing the Diamond package, definitely pay for a full year!  So the average annualized cost is $307.94.  If you add the average setup fee, that amount goes up to $340.27.

They also offer an affiliate like that includes a discount for team leaders to offer their teams.  A personal e-mail address using the domain you select is also included.  Also, for additional $450 you can have YLPersonalizedWebsite completely customize a design for you.  That may seem a bit expensive, but that is still 1/4 the cost I spent on having a custom theme designed and website built.

Ease of Use:

The website is fairly easy to navigate.  The website offers tons of information is a pretty easy to navigate user interface (UI).  The home page consists of a few videos explaining the company, being a leader, and the products.  They also have a very well worded explanation of the Seed-to-Seal program.  One thing I love about it is that they have included Google’s Translate engine to automatically translate the website into tons of languages!  This contributes to the world-wide usability of this site!

A public blog and team area is available.  They also have several templates available that one can start from when building their site.  Only 6 of the 12 farms are listed.

Maintenance:

Product description are automatically updated.  While the website can automatically be translated, that does not mean they have an international catalog available.  All the same product is listed.  If a distributor in, say Canada, wanted to use the site, they could exclude US product that is not available in Canada through the back office.

Domain:

YLPersonalizedWebsite puts your website on a personally owned domain.  The cost of the domain is included in the price at all levels for the first year.

Back Office:

The back office is a purpose built system that Elizabeth said was also used by several large corporations in various capacities.  This means that it is easily scale-able as their customer base grows.

Features:

YLPersonalizedWebsite offers a wide set of features.  Among some exciting features include PayPal integration so you can charge for product or services.  They also have Search Engine Optimization (SEO) programs integrated with the site.

Pros:

  • SEO integration
  • Robust page and post customization
  • Social media integration
  • Training material how to use the website
  • Ability to create and advertise Zyto and Raindrop services
  • Password protected team area (gold level)
    • Training
    • Downloads
    • Exclusive team content
  • Private exclusive membership portions (diamond level)
  • Personalized e-mail address using selected domain (diamond level) includes:
    • Autoresponders
    • E-mail lists
    • Custom e-mail templates
  • Event page with registration (can charge or be free)

Cons:

  • Current site does not have new convention product
  • Only 50% of the farms were listed

Service:

Elizabeth was very helpful!  And overall, the company has been responsive to my requests.

Summary:

In summary, I think YLPersonalizedWebsite offers a good website, however, it is just really expensive!  With all the things they are offering you are getting what you pay for!  The nice thing is that you can “upgrade” your account at any time.  Some new distributors may find that they do not need many of the services that are offered, but I think as they advance in rank they will start using many of the features.  I give YLPersonalizedWebsite an A- overall.
