Today I’m doing a review of a new software called Omni-Xpress
One thing I have said more times than I can count, because it is very true, is that the best way to make money online is selling your own digital product. I really cant stress that enough. Besides doing product reviews I also do a lot of free training. I do it on this blog and on my Facebook group. If there is one thing I wish everyone would learn its the simple fact: if you want to make money online you need to be selling your own product. I know this from first hand experience and from the experience of other people as well in fact: I know over a dozen people who generate over $1,000,000 a year online and every one of them sells their own digital products, including myself.
It does not take much to see how selling your own digital product can be so profitable. With a digital product you create it once, and sell it over and over. Unlike physical products there is zero production costs. Also because you will generally be selling digital products online there is a huge potential customer base. The entire world in fact. When you combine selling a product that has zero production cost with a huge audience what do you get? A lot of money, that’s what.
Omni-Xpress is a new cloud based store builder that is designed to take advantage of the huge opportunity that is selling digital products online. At it’s core it is a fully functional web store builder with everything you would expect.
I was also pleased to see that it allows several different payment options for you to chose from:
As well as several different autoresponder integration’s so you can automatically add your customers to your list (this is quite important for follow up sales):
Over all I was very pleased with both the flexibility and functionality of the system. However there was one thing that I really did not like. That I pointed out to the vendors, which they said they would correct (but not before the launch). Ill explain that in a minute, however there is one other feature with Omni-Xpress that I have to go over for it to make sense. One thing I do want to point out about it though is that while you can probably sell physical products with it, it is for sure designed with people wanting to sell digital products in mind. This is not a bad though though since as I explained earlier selling digital products is often much better than selling physical ones anyway.
What your probably thinking right now is: “Great, this is perfect for selling digital products, and selling digital products is very profitable but I cant make digital products”. Well first of all I’m going to call BS to to anyone who says they can’t create a digital product. Almost every vendor sells white label or reseller copies of at least some of their software that you can buy. In fact its likely that you already own some of them. Also if you have any kind of video creator, logo creator, graphics tool (with templates), page builder, explainer video tool, intro creator etc you can for sure make digital products. However assuming none of that applies to you the vendors of Omni-Xpress still have you covered.
Every customer of Omni-Xpress gets 12 free digital products that are automatically added to each store they create (there is an OTO for 15 more). These products are website templates which are available in a variety of niches. I downloaded a few of these templates and they are actually quite good. This frankly surprised me to be totally honest. I thought they would be some outdated, PLR website designed. But they are not, they are professional quality. The kind of thing you can feel comfortable selling to people. Oh and in case your wondering if people actually buy website templates. They do. I could write an article explaining why they do and showing you examples, but in the interest of time I’ll ask you to just take my word on this, as a person who use to make his living building online software and websites for people.
While I really like that they provide a lot of quality digital products automatically to people who build their digital product store with Omni-Xpress I also realize that some people might not want to actually sell the templates they provide. For some people, in some stores, this just might not fit in with what they are offering. This brings me to the thing that I don’t like about the system. When testing Omni-Xpress I realized that the products that they provide are automatically added to every store you build, and while you can disable them so they don’t show in your live store, you can not delete them from your stores dashboard all together. In fact you cant delete anything in your store, all you can do is disable it.
This honestly made no sense to me at all. A very basic concept in any software/ interface is what is called CRUD which stands for Create, Read, Update, Delete. By not having a way to fully delete products from your store they are in essence breaking a very basic ideal in software development. Not to be fair this is not the end of the world, you can still deactivate the product after all. Also this might just bother me so much because I am a software developer. But its something I really found annoying. I let the vendors know this, and they agreed to do an update, but they also let me know that this would not be done by the time they launch, so at the time of testing, and writing this article you still can’t fully delete products from your store, only deactivate them.
Despite this one thing that I found annoying I think Omni-Xpress is a good system over all. With it’s customization template system and many options for payment as well as autoresponder integration it is quite flexible. I like the fact that this comes with a load of quality products pre-made and ready for you to sell, but even more than that I like that this is something that will allow people to sell their own products, such as things they make with other software, or software they have reseller rights to.
As I have said so many times before, as I have said at the beginning of this review, and as I will say one last time because its really something I want people to accept: Selling your own digital product really is the number one thing you can do to make money online. With Omni-Xpress you can sell your own digital products or even sell the good quality ones they provide for you. Either way though it is a solid investment that is well worth considering.
A quick note about the reviews on this site: I am an affiliate for every product I review. The vendors of these products give me them without charge in order for me to test them. However all my reviews are done as honestly as possible and I make no promises to the vendor prior to writing my review. Should you click a link on this site that takes you to a paid product this link will be an affiliate link and I will be paid a percentage of the sales price should you decide to purchase that product.
