You have noticed probably that Cindy Donovan has launched a new product called DFY Hero. This is a “done for you” system, and it is available on several retail websites such as ClickBank, JVZoo, and Warrior plus.
You may be curious whether her system will help you in building your business, or you just decided to have a good looking website and by now you are not sure which system to use.
Cindy Donovan is quite famous for launching new products. I have had a chance to go through her earlier programs, called Traffic Ivy. I did a review about that as well and it is not bad SaaS either.
But let’s have a look at her most current system called DFY Hero.
Name: DFY Hero
Price: Advertised Price $47 or $97 + Upsells

DFY Hero Review – Product Overview
DFY Hero is a SaaS platform with more than 100 completely done for you websites. That includes sales eCom stores, squeeze pages, sales pages and blogs as well. Members of DFY Hero can simply import, edit and also sell to their clients or just use for themselves.
You purchase the product and you get access into the dashboard and the entire process can be summarized into 3 following steps:
- Pick Your Site – There are more than 100 completely (assuming you choose the $97 package) build-out websites. They can be activated with a single click. They can be preloaded with free images, written content, contact pages, about pages, buy buttons order buttons or opt-in forms.
- Customize Your Site – The customization of the sites is very easily done. Just drag and drop easy to use editor. You can add images, content, logo or a google map’s page.
It is viewable in real-time.
- Your Site is Live – According to the creators of DFY Hero, there is no need to get hosting. You don’t need a domain name.
You can just push the button to make the site live and it is there ready for everybody to see.
The nice thing is that all the sites are nicely organized. Templates are organized into categories and more are coming. Just a brief overview of the categories:
Local Business | Medical | Blog | Sales PAge | Education | Local Services, etc…
Besides the categories above you can also choose from:
Corporate, Portfolio, Creative, Squeeze Pages, eCommerce.
So if you are interested in one of the mentioned niches, you can use the proper template.
All pages are designed by designers, in consultation with marketers.
The Good & the Bad
- You can purchase nice professional look-alike websites
- Money-Back Guarantee (30 days)
- Lead pages, Blogs, eCom stores are included
- With a minor technical background, it is possible to get the very same results for Free
- You are not an owner of your website (hosting)
- Still kind of a new system, so there are still better alternatives
Who Is It For?
Anyone who is not sure how to build his website or thinks that can’t come up with a nice design can use the DFY Hero to his advantage.
That means starting entrepreneurs or local business owners who don’t have time for design development.
Based on the different templates DFY Hero provides, this system might fit almost to anyone interested in internet marketing, blogging, affiliate marketing or just would like to be a consultant.
In my opinion, this kind of business model is perfect for small business owners.
DFY Hero System – What Is in The Backoffice of DFY Hero
This is an easy to use one-touch website installer. Once you are in the back-office you can use the pre-built templates to produce websites, sales page and a lot more in minutes.
Let’s take a look inside of the DFY Hero dashboard. It probably looks familiar to you, especially when you already have used WordPress.
On the left-hand side, you see the dashboard along with some menu.
Underneath the Home, you see My Sites. As you first start this will be empty since you have not created any site.
That would be probably the first thing you want to start.
So when you click on the “Add New Site” button you come to the templates section where you can choose your favorite template.
You have chosen your website and now you are going to set the Site Address (URL), Site Title and the Site Language.
Now, you can go to view your site and you can start to customize it according to your wishes or your client request.
At this point, I would like to highlight, that most likely clients would like to have their website. If they are serious about their business, there is a big chance that they don’t want to rely on external hosting companies.
Just something you should keep in mind in case you would like to do this as a consultant or a freelancer.
Again, I can’t help myself but I want to let you know that the environment of the members’ area of DFY Hero is very similar to the back office of WordPress.
Inside the WordPress, you can choose tons of themes. You can even filter them out by your preferences.
Within the DFY Hero, you can choose the pre-built templates which can’t be done just by using WordPress alone.
But if you install the drag-and-drop page builder called Elementor you can get pretty much the same results.
There are two offers. You can have Elementor Free or the Pro version.
Even the free version offers lots of design possibilities so unless you have a budget the Free version is good enough.
Every decent product has its support dedicated page.
DFY Here has a link where you can check some general questions, or you can raise your own.
And also a Facebook Group page. Although at this moment (mid of September 2019) it seems that there are not yet that many members. But it is nice to have this option as well.
DFY Hero Price Structure
You can choose from 2 different memberships. There is a standard account and then a deluxe account.
- Standard Account – Price is $47 and you get 20 Done-For-You Website Templates.

My Final Opinion of DFY Hero
The website or templates you can purchase are very good looking. You can use them for your local business, especially when you don’t have time to develop your own website.
But it also depends on your niche.
If you have a blog where you mostly add lots of content, and that is your main purpose, you don’t need a fancy site.
On the other hand, when you have let’s say a hair dress studio the design of your website plays an important role.
What I don’t like though that your website is not entirely yours. They host the site for you.
Besides, I do believe that if you ever touched WordPress, you would be able to create a stunning website without DFY Hero. Probably there are many systems for free that can help you with nice design. I stumbled upon Elementor and I think it works great.
There is also a paid version, but I am sure you will be doing just all right with the Free version.
DFY Hero at a Glance…

The DFY Hero is not a bad product.
It certainly can save you some time while building up your website.
But if you have the time, go to YouTube and spend some time learning how to work with WordPress. And if you want to make it easier, check the Elementor and that will just do a job for you.
What also disturbs me a bit is the fact the DFY Hero is a quite new system. And I know products which are on the market for more than 10 years. They certainly have more experience.
I know that DFY Hero looks nice and you can certainly try that out.
If you have time I would recommend you to go check Wealthy Affiliate as well.
Within Wealthy Affiliate, you probably don’t get such nicely wrapped products, but it certainly delivers a value.
You will learn how to set up a website within a minute.
Then you will find a plethora of training there and you can get started for Free.
Regarding the DFY Hero – if you have an extra budget by all means – you can purchase the access to DFY Hero (I am not in partnership with DFY Hero not affiliated with this system).
Let me know in case you have questions regarding the DFY Hero, or maybe you want to find out more about other ways how to earn money on the internet.
I will be more than happy to answer you back.
