Rapid Content Wizard Review – Why This Software Just Doesn’t Cut It!Posted at December 11, 2013 by Christopher Mollo on category Internet Marketing Product Reviews, Product Releases, Website Reviews
Since you found this Rapid Content Wizard review, I’m assuming that you’ve already weeded through a whole bunch of Internet Marketing blogs that gave the software glowing reviews. In fact, I’d be willing to bet that 90% of the bloggers who wrote those don’t even own the software. I’ll even go out on a limb here and say that every Rapid Content Wizard review you’ve read so far had absolutely NOTHING bad to say about it! Well, you should be thankful you’ve found this review, because I’m going to tell you the cold, hard truth, even it’s not what you want to hear.
I’m somewhat ashamed to tell you this, but in the past I’ve promoted products to my subscribers that I didn’t own. Hold on a minute here before you form an opinion of me. Just because I didn’t purchase the product before promoting it doesn’t mean I didn’t do my research first. However, I’ve learned a really big lesson from my experience with Rapid Content Wizard. I’ve learned that simply doing research isn’t enough. The reason for this is simple. Every Internet Marketer and their mother who writes product reviews are probably writing them because they want you to purchase the product through their affiliate link so they can get paid! Subsequently, it’s going to be very difficult for you to find honest, thorough reviews on most Internet Marketing digital products & software.
I’m here to tell you that from now on I’m writing painfully honest reviews, even if it means that the reader won’t turn into a customer and purchase through my affiliate link. You know what? I DON’T CARE ANYMORE! I’m fed up with all of the dishonesty and hype out there and I’ve decided not to be a part of it any longer. Without further ado, here is the most honest review I felt I could write about Rapid Content Wizard.
Before I begin the review, though, I just wanted to provide you with proof that I actually own the software and know what I’m talking about. That’s why I decided to post my receipt below (minus some sensitive information):
I purchased the software a few evenings ago. After paying the $37 I learned that it only entitled me to 4 websites and 8 campaigns. If I wanted unlimited use, I’d have to pay another $27 (this is noted on the sales page – in SMALL print). OK, I’m an Internet Marketer. I know how the upsell works. No biggie. I paid the extra $27 and got the “Platinum” edition.
I was very excited and couldn’t wait to install the software. I got it installed, read the PDF instructions, and fired it up. I have a bunch of niche blogs but right now I wanted to work on my “hair loss” niche blog. I figured there would be no problem getting a lot of content for a hair loss post so I punched in the keyword “hair loss” and let ‘er rip. I was right. A lot of content came up. I got 700 words pretty quickly. So far so good. Until I started reading the article… It was basically separate paragraphs from regurgitated crap articles from article directories, most of which have been slapped to hell by Google. The paragraphs were about different subjects, some not even related to hair loss. Some of the paragraphs were exactly the same and had just repeated. Pretty disappointing.
I tried again and again with different niches for about an hour with the same result – low quality, poorly punctuated content. Now I’m getting frustrated. I said what the heck and kept going. I tried inserting some images (the automatic ones come from Flickr). The first few images had zero to do with hair loss. After about 10 clicks of the button I got one of a bald guy. That’ll have to do I figured. Next I tried adding videos. Surprisingly I got one about hair loss on the first try. HOORAY! Something finally worked like it was supposed to.
The blog post was horrible and it wasn’t even close to anything I would post on my hair loss blog, so I tried posting it to a test blog. I will say that all of that worked fine and the software posted the article properly. The posting process also includes a “pinging” feature, and the software told me that the ping was successful on 21/37 sites. Ok, so that’s pretty cool, but first you’ve got to get a halfway decent post. That’s rather difficult to do (if not impossible).
Since I was quite disgusted with the “article” feature, I next tried the “video post” option. That was fine. I had to click a few times to get a relevant video, but once I did the post looked alright and the software posted it just fine. That’s not a bad feature for those who like to pull YouTube videos now and again and make video posts on their blog. That feature works well and will save you time.
Next I tried the “Yahoo Answers post” feature. The content it pulled wasn’t relevant the first time but on the second go I got a good related question with a few solid answers so I tried posting that to my blog. For some reason it wouldn’t let me post unless I added a video or image and “previewed” the post first, but after I did that it posted properly to my blog. I’m not sure if that’s how the software is or if it’s a glitch. Still, this is a good feature for those who like to create a “questions and answers” type post once in a while.
Lastly, I tried the “Amazon product post” feature. I feel that this feature is the absolute best thing about the software. It pulls related products from Amazon and posts an image, a description, customer reviews, and a “buy now” button as a blog post. This one can be really great to promote Amazon products on your blog. The posts look nice and the Amazon affiliate links functioned fine.
Honestly, the YouTube video post and Amazon post features are the ONLY reasons I did not ask for a refund. As for the “article” and “Yahoo Answers” features, in my humble opinion they’re both worthless. You could do a better job writing your own content or outsourcing it. All in all I don’t feel it was worth the $64 I spent on it. I should have hired a writer and spent the $64 on a few top quality articles instead.
Another thing that people should be aware of is that to truly use all of the functions the software offers such as article spinning, proxies, OnlyWire posting, link building, and Copyscape, you will have to cough up more money to pay for these premium services. I think the spinner is like $77 per year and Copyscape charges 5 cents per search, etc. I didn’t look into OnlyWire and the link building options, but those probably cost as well.
I have no problems with any of the marketers who created this product or anything like that. I even promoted the software before I owned it (shame on me – I know). I’m just giving the most honest Rapid Content Wizard review that I can. I hope I’ve helped you, the reader, to come to an educated decision. In the end though, you will have to do your own research and decide whether or not to give the software a shot.
One of the main reasons I did not ask for a refund after the first day was because of the Amazon posting feature. I liked that function because it made a nice Amazon product post including an image, description, customer reviews, and “buy now” button. I was looking over my blogs yesterday and noticed that on one of my blogs, all of the “customer reviews” portions of the Amazon posts had disappeared! That was one of the two reasons why I didn’t ask for a refund sooner! That was enough for me. I put in my refund request last night. It hasn’t been very long since I did that so I’m not surprised I have not received my money back yet. I will report back further on this situation and let you know how it works out.
Well I just received my refund! I have to give their support team credit. They processed my refund in less than 24 hours. It’s just too bad that Rapid Content Wizard doesn’t work as well as their support desk does! At any rate, I’m glad that this whole fiasco is over!
