Tube Crusher has been popping up in my spam box regularly, promoting itself as an amazing way to earn money. There are even plenty of positive reviews, which imply that Tube Crusher is everything that it claims to be.
Still, the site itself is nothing special. Tube Crusher relies on one over-the-top marketing video, a signup link and the typical Clickbank price of $37. Those features might be the exact reason that you’re here. Tube Crusher certainly has all of the hallmarks of a scam. So, is it legitimate? The answer partly depends on how you define a scam, but regardless, Tube Crusher isn’t at all what it claims to be.
The Issues With Tube Crusher
My first problem with Tube Crusher is the way that it is marketed. Unrealistic claims are always a problem. They normally mean that the company is trying to manipulate readers. To me, that’s an immediate turnoff.
The first problem is the whole idea of $2,000 or per day. Some YouTubers make that much, sure, but not many. They’re typically people who have built a large following, but they definitely don't make two grand a day!
There’s also a degree of chance involved. For every one successful YouTuber, there are dozens of hopefuls. In many cases, those hopefuls have videos that are as good, if not better, than the success stories.
Even if Tube Crusher could teach strategies that guaranteed YouTube success, you wouldn’t become famous overnight. It takes time and energy to create this type of income stream. You would also need to put in the time long before you knew whether you were going to make money.
Another aspect of this is all of the marketing emails that are being sent out. I had at least half a dozen emails for Tube Crusher, all filled with plenty of hype about this ‘amazing’ way to earn.
This type of hype is incredibly frustrating. 7 figure bank balances from YouTube? Only the top dogs would be making that much – and they have costs associated with what they do too.
Viewers are also provided with very little information. For example, the sales video talks about Ciaran as the owner, but there are few details about who he is.
Despite the claims, we’re not told ‘exactly’ how people earn $2,000 per day through the system. The marketing video just focuses on income claims, the general idea of earning through YouTube and the fact that there isn’t much work involved. That isn’t especially helpful. It would be nice to know how the whole system works.
The claims even suggest that you don’t need artistic or technical skills. That’s hard to imagine, given that YouTube normally relies on quality and engaging videos.
Instead, the sales pitch for Tube Crusher just provides vague information. To find out more, you have to buy the product. I don’t expect the company to give away trade secrets in their video or anything like that. Still, this level of vagueness is disconcerting. Most legitimate companies find some ways to provide details, even if they do have to keep secrets about their underlying mechanism.
As always, the other issue is proof. All of the evidence that’s provided about potential income can be easily faked. For that matter, we have no way to know whose income we’re seeing or where it came from. So even if the images were legitimate, there’s no proof that they’re linked to the system at hand.
The issue of fake evidence also extends to the testimonials. Video testimonials often look good and imply that some people trust the system. That’s not the case. Those videos just use paid actors, which are normally sourced from Fiverr. It only takes a few minutes to find most of the actors and actresses on Fiverr, offering their skills as a spokesperson.
So far, nothing on the site is what it seems and I haven’t even covered everything. Tube Crusher is looking shadier by the minute.
Tube Crusher Reviews
Any information on the Tube Crusher site is likely to be biased. The site is trying to make money after all. What about the external reviews? Many of these are positive and these should be more accurate, right?
First of all, Tube Crusher does have an affiliate program. This program gives people the chance to earn by getting other people to purchase Tube Crusher. That’s why the various links to Tube Crusher have affiliate tags.
There’s nothing wrong with this angle. Affiliate marketing is a common way to earn. It’s something that I’m involved in and countless others are as well. The challenge is that affiliate marketing can lead to biased reviews. You need to consider this when looking at any product review.
The best types of reviews are those that weigh up the pros and cons. For products that don’t have many pros or many cons, look for reviews that explain why they have a specific viewpoint. Most of the glowing reviews for Tube Crusher don’t do this.
The quality of the reviews is another problem. Most of the ones that I found were poorly written, like the one below.
Other reviews seem to be spun content. This type of content is created by software that uses a previous article as a base. Spun content is easy to spot, as it tends to use synonyms that don’t quite work in the content and creates sentences that just sound odd.
In this case, the phrase ‘many legitimate options to ponder to get lucrative earning choices’ stands out to me. It’s not technically incorrect, but people don’t tend to write this way.
These patterns suggest that most positive reviews are from affiliates and don’t seriously weigh up whether the product is any good. I suspect that many of those reviewers haven’t even tried Tube Crusher themselves.
What You Get
When you get down to it, Tube Crusher is promoting the idea of creating a YouTube channel and earning from it. You would be making money through YouTube itself and also from affiliate marketing.
As a way to make money, this is entirely legitimate, but Tube Crusher doesn’t provide any new ideas, secrets or amazing techniques. You just get a basic guide to making money with YouTube. Most of that information is readily available online for free if you conduct a few basic Google searches.
You could also join a paid course through a site like Udemy. A course like that would give you much more information and would be more realistic about what you get for your money.
An even bigger problem is the hype. Remember how Tube Crusher was meant to offer up to $3,000 in affiliate commissions today? That simply isn’t possible with YouTube or affiliate marketing. With both techniques, it takes time and dedication to build a business. It will often take you months, if not longer, to see any income at all. Even then, you won’t immediately hit the targets that this site promotes.
YouTube can be a good tool for making money online, I’m not denying that. Videos can often be more engaging than the written word, especially for topics like food or crafts.
Even so, you’re normally better off using YouTube as a tool, rather than a primary income source. YouTube is notoriously unpredictable with their rules, preventing some people from earning anything with their videos. Pairing YouTube videos with a content-driven website can be an especially powerful technique. Tube Crusher doesn’t provide enough information to let you fully take advantage of that angle.
Tube Crusher does provide some avenues for making money, but the product is ultimately a letdown. The information that it provides is much less exciting than the claims it initially made. It would also take a decent amount of time and effort to make money using their approach.
Even if you are interested in YouTube as a long-term money making system, Tube Crusher isn’t something that I’d recommend. There are countless options out there for training and many of them have better content than Tube Crusher. If nothing else, it’s worth looking for a product that is realistic in the way that it is marketed.
Most products like this last just a few short months then disappear. That's the nature of hype in the business of making money online.
The only system I've seen last more than a decade is the same place where I learned how to start an online business. They've been around teaching newbies to make money online since 2006. You can join for free and start your first website in the next couple minutes
