Digital Point Review

Shawn D. Hogan is the founder and CEO of the popular and controversial website “Digital Point” which is based in San Diego and has been in operation for over 8 years. It’s unclear when the website first launched, but the founder has a highly publicized history of legal problems that if familiar with the site you may have read about. This website has a record for bringing in millions in revenue, and it’s a software based site including forums that offers services that many might find helpful. Digital point currently has 150K members and a supposed high ratio of daily website traffic, although when we visited the sites stats stated there were only 1,048 total visitors online. It’s also been ranked in the top 1000 websites worldwide. One would definitely say the site is a success, unless of course they’re counting the legal hassles of the founder or the fact it continuously receives a bad rep.

The Product

Features

Digital Point is clearly one of the most popular business forums online. Thousands of its members are active on-site daily. The forums basic topics are numerous ways to make money online. People can generally take advantage of helpful search engine optimization strategies, tips for selling products online through affiliates, web designing information and everything related to creating businesses and creating income. This website from first glance is not attractive in the slightest way, but if visiting you’d feel it has lots to offer.

We were also able to find a trade buy and sell section where members can offer additional services selling their own products or posting affiliate links. Another section was created specifically for those wanting to buy or sell website links to keep those links from surfacing within the actual forums. Although the website did have a history of spamming, we were told that it’s been moderated with certain restrictions.

Target Group

Initially we gathered that Digital Point was just a business forum, so we figured the target group was business owners or those interested in starting a business. Then we found, this website could really be utilized by anyone looking for ways of making money online in numerous online ventures. It’s a haven for those interested in learning new techniques to enhance things like website traffic, affiliate commission, web design techniques, choosing the best affiliate products to promote and other topics which generate interest while inspiring dreams of financial freedom. Members not only use the Digital Point for personal needs, they use it to network, buy and sell website links, view analytics, PayPal and AdSense stats, read product reviews, purchase ad space, and keep up with daily business news. In many ways some offerings of this site are similar to that of the highly popular Warrior Forum, which still comes out ahead for offering an online forums community where people can learn to earn and share insight to help others. Digital Point does have a long way to grow before they can share the spotlight with Warrior Forum in the eyes of many.

Main Benefits

  • Buying and selling of links

  • Learning techniques to create online income

  • Viewing of Analytics, AdSense and PayPal stats

  • Web design techniques

  • Search engine optimization topics

  • Networking with individuals, businesses, and professionals in specific areas

  • Free to join

Pricing

It’s unclear whether Digital Point takes a share of profits from things their members buy and sell on the site, but we do know that the buying and selling options are available. There are certain things Premium members are allowed to purchase at cheaper pricing than none-members. Perhaps there is a price for premium membership. We’ve found that most prices listed for products and services are fair and affordable.

Customer Support

When clicking the customer support tab listed in the bottom right hand corner on every webpage, we were redirected to the Twitter Digital Point page. It has over 10, 877 followers with over 7000 total tweets. Members are able to tweet their questions, so we’re guessing Digital Point response time is quick. Members are also able to seek help at any time within the forums. There were no contact numbers and we didn’t find an email support area either.

Pros

  • Free to become a member

  • Networking with other business and success minded individuals

  • Learning new techniques throughout your online ventures

  • Buying and selling products

  • Purchasing or selling of links

Cons

  • Buying and selling links

  • Not fully detailed on membership before signup

  • Unattractive website that’s a bit clustered in content

  • No email or phone contact information

  • Highly publicized legal problems of founder

  • Spamming still occurs in important areas of the site

Overall Verdict: C-

Although still highly rated, Digital Point popularity and growth is declining with time. Sure there are helpful and interesting forum topics along with opportunities, but it’s simply not enough to cast the spotlight off the surrounding negativity. Its founder was recently arrested May 4, 2013 for the EBay Cookie Stuffing $28 million commission scam. More than likely, the site will either be sold or disappear in a short time. If you’re looking to earn online, especially through affiliate marketing and business, perhaps you should look elsewhere like the highly rated Warrior Forum. It’s not a great time to get in on the action that is Digital Point until certain things are resolved.
