What is it?
Easy Tube Profits is a course that supposedly teaches you how to setup a YouTube channel, create videos and optimize them so you can earn money.
This is one product that does not deliver on its promise. It should have been called “How to Create a YouTube Channel” because that is the only thing you're going to learn from it. It's a very basic guide full of vague information about YouTube. It talks a lot about how people make lots of money with videos, but never tell you how you can do the same.
Before You Buy
This product is riddled with upsells. If you don't know what an upsell is; it's an offer that you're taken to after you make your original purchase. They should be defined in the dictionary as annoying.
It's common — even acceptable — to see one or two upsells when you buy a product online. But Easy Tube Profits takes it too far with six upsells (yes, 6!).
These additional offers range in price from $5 to $17. If you were to purchase each one of them you would spend an additional $55 on top of the original $7.00. What's even worse is that each upsell promises to enhance the original product.
An upsell is supposed to be relevant, and yes, enhance the original product — but if there's six of them, it makes you question the value of the original product. If there's that much room to improve on it, it must not be that great to start with.
What I Liked
This product offers some information about YouTube setup. It's very basic information but if you're a newbie it will probably be helpful to you.
Learn Proper Channel Setup
If there's one thing I can say for this product it's that it teaches you how to fully setup a YouTube channel. This information can be found all over the web, including hundreds (maybe more) of videos on YouTube itself.
But sometimes finding all the information you want in one place can be a daunting task. So for that one reason, I like Easy Tube Profits. But also know that this process will likely change in the coming months, as it changes quite a bit. This product will likely be obsolete in the very near future.
What I Didn't Like
The biggest problem I have with this product is that it never gets into how to actually make money with YouTube videos. Everyone knows that it's possible to do so by creating and publishing video, but there's more to it than that. A lot more. This product's name leads you to believe it will discuss those things but it never does.
Buying Likes and Subscribers
Easy Tube Profits suggests buying subscribers and likes when you're just getting started as a YouTube artists. But that is really bad advice. YouTube has taken a firm stance against channels and video creators who resort to these methods, by removing their channels for YouTube permanently.
This is a well known fact, so I found it surprising that these guys would suggest it. In fact, some of the sites they recommend are no longer around.
Even if those sites were still available, which some of them are, it's simply a bad idea to use them. If you're serious about YouTube then using services like these is like gambling with your business. Once youTube finds out — and it won't take them long — you risk losing your channel and all the hard work and money you invested into the videos.
One thing I noticed about this product is that a lot of the so-called testimonials came from other marketers whose product's I've reviewed. This is a common occurrence with “make money” products: one marketer asks another marketer to leave a testimonial for his/her product, so that it looks like people are actually buying and enjoying the product.
Each person highlighted in this image is another marketer. They recieved free copies of the product in exchange for a review. These are also other Warrior Forum cronies that have create products I've reviewed on this website like Delilah Taylor and Chris Cole/Stace Ace. I doubt they even looked through the product for more than a few moments so they could create their shill review.
“Resources that I've never seen anywhere?” Apparently, we still can't see them because they no longer exist (see image above)
The truth is, these marketers will, in turn ask Art and Shane to review their next product's once they are released. So the likelyhood of them leaving an honest, in depth review is slim.
If they say, “this product was very basic and I learned nothing”, guess what will happen when they need a review.
So that's why I put very little (if any) faith in those reviews.
Update: I just realized that James McKnight is the guy doing shill reviews with Kristie Chiles. Oh, how the world of WSO promotion becomes so much more cronystic.
Where's the Profit?
The product is called Easy Tube Profits so you would think you might learn something about how to make money but you don't. Sure they tell you to sell a product, but they don't ever give you any actually strategies to do that.
There's some advice like “make sure to use a call to action” and “link to the product in the description” but beyond that, there's really nothing.
It's all very generic information that assumes whatever product you choose to promote will automatically sell itself.
Anyone can figure out how to use YouTube. You don't need to buy this product for that. What you need is real, helpful advice you can use to take a specific action that moves you toward profiting from your videos.
Easy Tube Profits contains none of that. You can learn more from my blog for free, including YouTube SEO, my post about what it means when people try to sell you ‘get paid to upload videos‘ type products.
What a bunch of Bull
I got an email from Shane Nathan today promoting his own product. Um, I already bought it bro. Here's what I saw at the bottom, which is my first time seeing something like this.
It sounds like he's getting some serious spam complaints and had to switch to a private server especially for spammers. The fact that he was promoting Easy Tube Profits again, which means either 1) He doesn't remember I actually bought the product, 2) He got my email from some other WSO dweeb that sold him my address, or 3) it's a promo from his Breakthrough Adsense Profits product. Either way, it's annoying.
Making a full time income from reading one PDF just isn’t going to happen, especially if there isn’t a good enough support network. Learning how to make money online will be a long and winding journey, so what happens if you get lost somewhere down the road? You can get my personal assistance and mentorship at no cost as a member of this online business training center, as well as the support of thousands of other members who want to see you succeed.
Plus, creating a popular YouTube channel is a very intense process that involves video editing skills or a love of the camera. There are entire channels dedicated to teaching people how to grow their channel, so it's not an easy or one-step process.
