I know, I know another automatic content creator that doesn't work. So why do I keep wasting my time on these reviews? Because first of all my goal is to review every Internet Marketing product that comes out, or at least the super-hyped ones (I have a long way to go on that haha). I also have another reason that I explain in the video. I really am looking for something that can help create content in a more efficient way.
Contenu is not the answer
This is how it goes. It is a WordPress plugin and I will admit very simple to set up. Install it, connect your YouTube API and start converting narration to text. If the narration is not transcribed on the video, which most aren't, you have completely unique content. Problem is, it is not working for me.
I am not sure I would completely use this plugin the way it is described for use, in fact, I absolutely would not but it still, in my opinion, is a gray area of ethics. Yes, you are stealing content (don't want to candy coat that). However, you are giving a link back to the video and in fact, you can even go so far as to embed the video in your post, in effect promoting the video with your post. Even though your whole post is the narration of the video, it doesn't have to be. If I could get this to work the way it is supposed to, I would definitely add to and change the article to fit my voice and style. It is a question of ethics, one that can be debated but I would not mind if others did this to my videos. In my opinion, it would only support and promote them and I am good with that. All this is a moot point, however, as cannot get the software to work and therefore will not be using it by default haha.
Steemit and other revenue generating techniques
First of all, let me say I do not have proof obviously to doubt the veracity of the claims made in the sales page and video. In fact, I will go a step further and say that it is highly probably these folks are generating the amounts they are claiming, however, the problem lies in duplication. Let's take my jump shot for example. I have played basketball all of my life and have always been a very good shooter, fundamentally for sure if not statistically. Which means if Steph Curry looked and critiqued my shot in the gym, he would not have much to say in terms of the fundamental aspect of my shot. Now can I produce Steph Curry results? OK, I know dumb question but one that makes a point. Duplicating what is taught even if you do it technically correctly is a long shot unless you do it for a long time and really learn the ins an outs.
Most of these product creators have been at it for a while
So Like the example above, Steph has been shooting the ball thousands of more times than I have. Even if I spent the same amount of time in the gym and like I said I am a pretty good shooter, I could not even come close to his results. However, a small percentage of his results would be OK with me.
What you have to understand is when you buy one of these products, you are expecting to execute them like Steph Curry or whomever the person is who is selling it. Most likely not going to happen unless you spend hours upon hours perfecting the technique. However, most do not, especially if they are new. Let's face it most folks are lazy, those are usually the ones not even trying to find a way to better their plot in life. Even those who are trying to get ahead, are probably not lazy but don't like to make huge efforts unless there is going to be a payoff or reason to do so. I don't blame them, I don't like to do that either. On top of all that the claims or ease of use and quick profits completely confound the newbie when they discover it is not as easy as was described. You have to realize when you buy something like this, there is a catch, there will always be a catch. You have to go into it with your eyes wide open and say, this is probably not all it's cracked up to be but I think I will at least get something out of it. Don't spend money you don't have and then gosh darn it, get the refund if it is really that bad.
Most things don't get me upset
So I cannot deal with the fact that I am not going to be as good as the sales page and videos claim at executing the program I just purchase but what really burns my ass is the seemingly forgotten devil in the details.
Never anywhere in the sales page or videos do they let you know that it will take one or two weeks to get approved for Steemit which is the primary revenue generator for this process. They say you can get started making money right away but you can't. Oh, I'm sorry yes you can if you have experience using block chain and paying for stuff with your bitcoin. I am dead sure a good percentage of newbie affiliate marketers are ready and waiting with their bitcoin accounts so that they can jump right in. It's unimaginable how they promote this as a user-friendly program when most folks don't even know what hosting space is let alone trade in bitcoin. I am sure I will find out soon enough when they finally get accepted 2 weeks from now.
What are these pay for post sites all about anyway
To be honest, I don't really know. I am new to all of this. There are many freelance sites for writers (https://www.aol.com/article/finance/2015/01/24/sites-buy-guest-posts/21132908/) but this whole Steemit and PayPerPost is off of my radar. It seems to work like Reddit, only you can generate revenue from it directly. I hate to admit I don't know that much about Reddit either but, in a way, if you get enough attention or votes or whatever, your content becomes more valuable and you will get paid more for it. Whatever the case maybe it is hardly a starting place to generate revenue with fake stolen content from YouTube.
I have created accounts at both of these sites, and although I have not spent much time there I still have no clue how they work. In fact, most of the "Opportunities" as they call them on PayPerPost always seemed to be directed at influencers. Which, if you don't know what that is you are certainly not one. I know I am not.
T.E.A. Reviews are here for the uninitiated
We write these reviews and do these videos to get into the nitty-gritty of what is actually being offered. Most of the time it is crap or just too complicated for any new person to actually execute and be successful at. I have never seen any reviews that do what we do in terms of our transparency and depth of insight we give you on the product. We not biased but we do subscribe to the education taught at Wealthy Affiliate and have seen success from that system time and time again. It too takes a ton of hard work and you will not do it overnight but we don't promise that and our community will be there to answer any question you might have almost on the spot. As you can see in the video, I requested help yesterday at three in the afternoon and here it is 10 the next day and still no answer. I really don't think I am ever going to get an answer but if you see this post one day comment below and ask me if I ever did get any help.
Content is not easy but it is fun and rewarding
I wish you all could get inside my head and see what I think when I am writing a piece of content. cannot actually do just that with mentors of mine. I am gaining perspective by going back into their old posts when they first started out and see what they were thinking and even better, what they were doing. cannot see that they were once where I am and they are where I want to go. This gives my site and blog purpose and direction and makes writing the content so much more worth it. Not to mention the satisfaction I get from letting unsuspecting marketers know much better what they are getting into when they purchase a particular product. I am getting some great feedback and hope to one day crank out thousands of reviews a year to keep the industry on its toes. I am not sure about you but I realize these folks make money off of the ignorance and idealist view of possible success. cannot do that. I don't think you can either.
The Educated Affiliate reviews internet marketing products and services first hand (we purchase all the products we review) and without hype or unsubstantiated claims. In fact, part of our review process is to asses whether or not the offer's claims are valid. We do not promote anything we review with affiliate links.
We do not recommend or discourage purchase, although we will share our opinion about the value of the product. For the most part, we simply let you know what the product has to offer.
Experience has shown us that most of internet marketing products sold on a daily basis are over-hyped and of little or no value. We sometimes get tidbits here and there from our purchases, and we share those with you, but nowhere near the grand claims that are made by their creators.
We believe in the concept of content marketing, providing valuable information while promoting the services that teach you how to be successful and the tools that help you to be more efficient and effective at it. The products we use on a daily basis and promote can be found on the right panel. If you have direct questions, feel free to subscribe to our review updates and you can ask us directly.
