Today I will be giving you my Human Proof Designs Review. I first got in contact with Dom Wells, the owner of Human Proof Design about 3 to 4 years ago when I began inside Wealthy Affiliate. I was trying to build an online business with my very own niche site which is when I reached out to him for some assistance. He told me how he was in the works of building a website that was tailored around making the process of niche websites easier but at a cost. He even mentioned how much easier if outsourcing for affiliate marketing had a reliable source and man, I thought to myself that would be golden.
Affiliate marketing has become a bit on the not transparent side of things. More and more scams have been associated with this type of online business. I’ve come across many companies that promise ready made sites but they fail to deliver or you just receive a spammy website with lack of content or even spun content. The idea behind creating ready made websites is phenomenal but only a few people can actually execute this at a quality level in which the search engines will be pleased with.
Ready made websites aren’t a need to succeed but they can speed the process up. It’s a lofty expense but if you want a head start with your initial content set up, with the keyword research done for you, back linking services , article services then this review will elaborate on the service that Human Proof Design offers.
What Is Human Proof Designs ?
Human Proof Designs (HPD) is an online business which offers different services apart from making pre ready made websites and also, custom made sites. Custom made sites are just that, you can contact them in regards to a niche you have in mind and if they agree that it’s a good niche then they will create this website for about the same price.
They offer other services like article packages , keyword packs , and even an affiliate community that is very hands on. At the moment Dom’s is doing a case study where he goes from $0 to $10,000 . He walks his audience through what he does on a week to week basis, he’s currently in week 4.
Take a look at the video below where Dom’s explain why Human Proof Designs was created.
He’s not your write content, publish , and pray for rankings type of guy. He practices what he preaches, covers a lot of different ranking strategies. I personally enjoy his back linking tactics which can rank your websites a whole lot faster then your typical write an article a day type of method but to each is his own.
Dom and his team have the experience to back up what they talk about.
Those are some pretty impressive numbers with many testimonials to back it up. Take a look at some of the different niches that HPD has made websites on.
In this review, I’ll touch up on a couple of services that HPD offer including ready made sites,custom made sites, and aged sites.
Ready Made Websites
If you have the money to invest in a HPD ready made site then I would definitely do it but it’s not for everyone. If you struggle with the technical part of creating a website and the overall set up and just want some initial content then this service is definitely for you.
You are getting a quick start on your affiliate business with 8,000 words to 16,000 depending on the package you choose. At the very least, you are saving yourself a lot of hours and headaches in the beginning. You get a very nice designed website with some product reviews , a best of page , and some informative articles on your niche.Your website will come with a premium theme and stock images which really helps your website stand out from a visual aspect.
They have a basic and premium package, the premium just adds more content (double the amount of basic) , a logo , and your social media accounts.
Here are some of the available ready made niche websites that HPD currently has available.
You will be in a niche that HPD researched and gave the green light to which means, you can make some very good income off. If you think about what ready made sites include then I can see why you would think this is a worthwhile investment.
Custom Niche Websites
This is just in case they don’t have a ready made site for a niche that appeals to you. You can give them some niche ideas and they will be willing to do the research for you to see if this is a niche you should target. HPD are very trust worthy and reliable, you will pay just about the same as you will for a ready made niche website.
Breakdown of the Starter Package Price:
- 8,000 total words ($200 – $300)
- 2,500 homepage
- Keyword research ($50 – $100)
- Excellent images ($20)
- Premium theme and plug ins ($250)
You are getting a very good deal when you actually break down the price for each feature and this isn’t taking into account the domain name, technical support , and ect. You are getting very good content because a writer would probably charge you just about what a ready made website starter package cost.
- these websites take the HPD team about a month to create but they also offer aged websites which are already built and been created for about 6 months just sitting there.
The Debate: Are Ready Made Websites and Custom Websites Worth The money ?
I touched on this topic a bit but I wanted to break it down to a T. If you are a beginner in affiliate marketing is this service for you ? I would say it depends on you in all honesty. I personally would have loved to be a website like this done for me when I started as I would have been able to turn my attention to more important matters such as, learning SEO, social media , writing content , and out reach among some other stuff.
Most beginners waste too much time on the design of a website when that isn’t too important. Writing quality content and having a good site structure is way more important.
I wouldn’t have to worry about if I had chosen the right niche or if it’s even profitable. That is taken care of but then again, $479 is not pennies we are talking about . HPD saw a problem and provided a legit solution but it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth it.
On the other side, are you getting a good deal for a website ? yes, you definitely are but this isn’t someone will invest willingly. You can build a website on your own and pretty easily too, the problem is you might waste a lot of time (months probably) before you get it ‘right’ .
It will take time to learn how to do proper research and how to write quality content. Structuring your article actually takes practice as well. There isn’t really a right or wrong choice here, can HPD help you gain income ? Yes and no, the creation of the site alone won’t bring you revenue. You have to continue creating content with good keyword research to gain the first page rankings that will bring money down the line.
If anything , HPD is more of a shortcut and a guide on how niche website building should be done.
This is not for everyone , I just want to clarify that before I talk about the aged sites. If you been in the affiliate marketing business you probably know that niche websites take time to rank consistently . your website will stall in rankings till Google considers it trust worthy.
Think about all the sites created every day and then figure out how the search engines would rank them. You can’t rank new sites right away because then you will have one month sites ranking over old aged domain websites. This is what has been known as the sandbox effect , simply means where Google doesn’t show you much love till about the 6 month mark could be less or more.
Here is why aged sites are amazing….
- These websites that HPD sell are no longer sandboxed.
- You don’t have to wait a month to get them since they are already built.
- Has content already build , links , and social signals.
- You have access to previewing the site before purchasing.
What Do Aged Sites Include ?
- Just like your premium sites you will have 16,000 words of content (best of post , product reviews , and information article)
- Premium theme – It’s very important to have a nicely designed website and well, a premium theme accomplishes this.
- Excellent plugins like the other sites that includes Thrive Content Builder, EasyAzon, Wordfence, Pretty link, and some others.
- Comes with it’s own social media accounts.
- Comes with a E-book written that can be used to grow your email list.
- Existing keyword research and rankings report.
Some other features that site will include:
When you get a website that is past the sandbox effect your going to be seeing better results for the content you write from that day on and even the link building you do. the website is great but even the training you receive is very hands on and can really be the key to earning some sustainable income.
Are Aged Sites For You ?
Aged sites aren’t for everyone as they aren’t cheap but that’s not even the reason. If you are just starting out in affiliate marketing I wouldn’t recommend this as it cost around $1500 . So who is this for you ask .
If you think you will be earning money the day you purchase the aged site then you will be wrong because it still takes time to rank for your targeted keywords. It’s a huge head start; think of it like a race the aged site is the rabbit while the ready made sites is the turtle.
The aged site will get results faster. The HPD will even develop a custom plan for ranking your website which is just awesome. This service they offer is really for the experience internet marketers that want another stream of income coming in.
Which Path Is Right For You ?
If you are just starting out then you should go down the free path meaning learn how to do things for free. I learned everything for free inside Wealthy Affiliate and then I went on to more expensive resources. Either one of the sites that HPD offer are of the best quality for sure but remember this isn’t some buy and ill make money without doing anything.
Affiliate marketing isn’t that confusing once you get accustomed to the online business. Why would I recommend HPD ? It’s simple, choosing a good niche is where people usually go wrong.
Some people just tell you “oh just see how many competing websites in that niche” thats sort of a good plan but they forget to tell you that you should check the SERPS to make sure there aren’t too many authoritative websites on there. The team at HPD are very good at choosing niches that won’t take years to see a return on investment.
I myself failed with my first website because I choose a general fat loss niche which is one of the most if not the most competitive niche out there. Let’s take at some other services that HPD offers.
Writing content isn’t something that is very easy specially content the converts. They currently have 2 different services at the moment on called monthly articles and article pack. They differ a bit from each other, I’ll give you the break down of each.
Monthly articles are only for HPD websites. So if you have a website that you created a while ago then you will not have access to this service but for those of you who bought a HPD site then you will find this useful.
These articles are very SEO friendly , high quality and completely automated. This service is a monthly article subscription which you tell them your keyword and they’ll write your content and publish it on your website. Let’s take a look at what this service actually includes.
- 1000 word article’s
- A stock image as the featured image
- Formating (H tags and affiliate links)
- Keyword research pack updated
They have 3 different options at the moment. The more amount of words the cheaper it comes out per article.
If you can afford it then it might be a good investment but it is a tad on the expensive side but there other service might be more convenient.
Article Packs are the same quality you just only get the content. You don’t get the keyword packs , the interlinking , the stock images , and so on.
I personally like this service because you can just order a pack and add on all the other stuff manually. You will be saving yourself quite a bit in the long run.
The HPD also offers keyword packs for $49 if they have the available packs which they sell to more than one customer but will only sell it to 10 customers. You shouldn’t be scared of this because not every person takes action when buying a pack. You can also request a custom keyword pack but this will cost you $79. The keyword pack will also come with the top 100 products in that niche.
Press Release – If you are building backlinks then getting a press release is a must as it helps diversify your link profile. It helps you with the search engines as you become that much more trust worthy. It’s almost like a safe preliminary caution so that you avoid getting hit with a penalty in the future.
I’ve bought this press release from the HPD team and I must say that I was satisfied. They distributed my website to some very quality places. The process was very simple.
- You place your order
- The press release is completed in about 3 to 4 days
- 2 – 3 days after completion the press release is send out
- In 2 weeks you will get a report so you can verify
PBN Links – Now I was very surprised when I heard that HPD was offering a PBN service as well for various reasons. Not everyone can run this type of service but from what I’ve seen they do it well. I bough a ‘silver package’ for one of my niche sites which is 10 PBN links and I had some good results.
There are some requirements:
- Your website can’t spammy
- Have some Initial Links built
- Have basic on page SEO done
You just summit your information (they’ll help out with the keywords to target and anchor text advice) and then sit back waiting for results. It typically takes like 5-6 weeks to see results.
Human Proof Designs Question and Answers
Q: How long does it take to many money with a niche website ?
A: It’s very difficult to give an appropriate or exact answer because of various variables. Each niche is different but it really depends how much action you are willing to take. I’ve seen people make money in the first week while others take months. How much content you write to which keywords you are targeting are some of the variables. How long it takes you to make money is really up to you as you will have control of your website. so yeah, if you put effort into your website then you will make money.
Q: How much money will you make with a niche website ?
A: This is impossible to answer as for almost the same reason above. Too many variable like niche , how articles are written, how well they convert , and ect. The possibilities are endless though as I seen people making 10K a month with niches that makes you scratch your head.

My Verdict On Human Proof Design
If you are looking for a way to outsource your affiliate marketing efforts then you should definitely give HPD a very hard look.
