The Tube Equation is a new product from Mark Wightley that the creator claims will allow users to start to generate a significant online income by using YouTube as a marketing platform.
What does the product offer?
Mark Wightley is adamant that video marketing is the easiest way to make money online and that The Tube Equation is the definitive guide to doing this. The majority of The Tube Equation is training based with Mark Wightley saying that the will show you the steps that he takes to ensure that this method makes an automated income as well as how to utilise the plugin to get ranked on the first page of Google.
Not surprisingly, the training is video based and is presented in a step by step fashion. The Tube Equation also comes with a list of keywords that “guarantee sales” as well as the secrets to finding the keywords.
There are also topics such as building an audience for your video content as well as increasing traffic to your videos. Not surprisingly there are also a number of free bonuses provided with The Tube Equation, each of which fundamentally ties into the idea of using YouTube as a method of online marketing.
How does the product work?
The key premise behind The Tube Equation is one that I have seen multiple times over and it is also one that I Have seen work well as well as fail spectacularly. Essentially, what The Tube Equation shows you to do is to create videos on YouTube based around certain long tail keywords.
These are usually in a very specific niche and fashion. Because of this and the way Google ranks video content, The Tube Equation will supposedly make it easier to get people to visit your video rather than a website. From there you have relevant promotional links to an affiliate product or your own.
What is the initial investment?
At the time of writing, The Tube Equation is being sold for a one time cost of $18.11 (at the time of writing) however it is worth keeping in mind that this is on a dime sale. What this means is that as more copies are sold, the more the price of The Tube Equation goes up (although Mark Wightley doesn’t say to what price).
The Tube Equation does come with a 30 day money back guarantee however it is worth noting that as it is sold through JVZoo, you will have to claim this from the vendor.
What is the rate of return?
The sales material for The Tube Equation suggests that it is easily possible to make $300 plus per day however it is worth pointing out that these are based on just 2 days which are clearly selected for their high earnings. Realistically, I can imagine a figure much lower than this.
The Tube Equation is far from the first product of its ilk that I have looked at and I am certain that it won’t be the last either. In many ways, this is the biggest problem with the product is that it has been done before, and it hasn’t even been done with any guaranteed success.
The author is far more concerned with selling you his rags to riches story than he does with the product itself (always a red flag for me). Furthermore, the evidence that is provided in terms of the profitability of The Tube Equation is so clearly from selected days (likely because of their high yield) that I would take it with a pinch of salt.
All of this simply doesn’t come together to make a product that I would consider to be a worthwhile purchase, even at a relatively low price.
