Ultimate Video Curator - thoughts?

by 135 replies
I'm seeing e-mails touting a new product from Alex Goad and another marketer called Ultimate Video Curator. It's a WP plug that automates the process of finding relevant videos to post at a site along with curated comments, plus a theme and a couple other items. It looks good, and it looks like something I could use for my .tv domains, but I'm wondering if anyone here has purchased this product and, if so, your thoughts on the product. Also, if you you did purchase, is there an OTO included.

Thanks.

    Blazon1,
    I've seen it too. What I'd like to know that I didn't see in the video is how they're being monetized. Another thing that concerns me is Alex Goad. His reputation seems to be that he tends to abandon his software. Interestingly along that theme the offer does not have an about us page, or any way th contact Alex. Those things make me nervous, so I haven't decided on the software yet.
    Just my opinion...

      Yes, I noticed that, too, also no mention of who the second person is that is involved with the launch, although his (I assume it's a he) illegible signature is on the sales page. Don't know much about Alex, but most IM'ers abandon their products fairly quickly, especially if they aren't the creators of the products, which is probably the case here.

    I've followed video and content curating for a while. There seems to be a little more than point and click to these systems. You might want to check out other programs like Viral Video Content Pro - Hugh HItchcock or WP Video Sense - Peter Garety, Both have substantial search records. - Bill

    Yeah, I wish this was a forum launch. Bryan is a young kid that has had some successful launches on the forum but sometimes his service can be slow. I own a few of his products and at times you need to keep on him to get the service you need. That said...he has launched some pretty cool products on here.

    Here is an interview Han Fan did with him regarding the Ultimate Video Creator and the OTO's.


    I own the pro versions all of Hugh's curation products... VVC, VIC and ICC and in my experience he certainly is a bit more responsive than Bryan is --> but Hugh also works with other programmers so he does not always have all the answers...but he does reply to concerns, no doubt about that.

    That said, Hugh's VVC is a desktop software and it will also send stuff to social media (twitter, facebook and pinterest) and he has a syndication module available for purchase as well...which is the only way to do self hosted with VVC --> UVC does not have the syndicator built in, but will do self hosted. Like Bryan's software Hugh's software will schedule posts but it does not have the related videos, RSS and YouTube comments stuff built in like Bryan's plugin does.

    I have been working/playing around using Garety's RSS plugin (I don't have the pro version) and the free related videos plugin to do what Ultimate Video Creator does and it can do it...sorta...but it would be nice to have the UVC plugin. I am not positive but I believe for early buyers a couple of free bonuses are offered with the higher priced front end offer(s).

    A few OTO's are available, one of them being some sort of video sitemap plugin...I have been using the free video sitemap plugin to see how how well it works.

    Another OTO is available which is an expensive package of Bryan's plugins...and I think an info OTO is available as well.

    I was glad to see the package of plugins offered as it should mean that he will continue to support some of the plugins that I already own.

    I am still on the fence with UVC...I already have lots of curators and Mark D's Covert Player --> but UVC is very cool, and I want it, but ongoing service is also my concern.

    Hope that helps.

      ForumGuru, is this the free video sitemap plugin you were referring to? http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/...ps-for-videos/

      This is what Todd Gross said in one of his emails that I believe is the info OTO:
      (There is an option to get 6 extra modules of advanced
      training once you have the software - the price of which
      will shock you - get that extra training, we want you
      in this group)

      Jimp1, same concerns here regarding Alex Goad. He does seem to abandon his software, plus last year I tried numerous times to retrieve a substantial bonus offered by him (for a substantial purchase) using the support desk he provided. It was a joke: the 'support' desk literally sends you around in circles and had no where for bonus requests - only a drop-down for each of his products which you're eventually forced to use.
      After finally creating an account there and putting in your request there isn't even an acknowledgement email. So good luck on that.
      As far as monetizing I guess you just have to get the training modules, or stick in an Adsense or affiliate link where you can.

      I'm still on the fence as well. If people are so glued to these videos, as the site infers, when ARE they going to click on anything else?

      Anyone else?

      Edit: I located the link for Alex's help desk. I had to recreate an account so, of course, my previous tickets were not there. I put in a test ticket, with a small and polite gripe thrown in, and this time received an acknowledgement email which included this text:

      Please note that we've just recently switched to a new support desk powered by Zendesk. If you're receiving this new ticket notification after replying to a ticket that is already open and existing, it is because your ticket has now been transferred to the new support desk. The agent you were communicating with will continue correspondence. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition.

      Also note that the new support desk is located at http://supportchamps.zendesk.com -- any future support request can be made there, or you can simply email support as normal.
      ----

      So, there is a way to contact him, and BTW....Ultimate Video Curator is in the drop down at the help desk, but this line in that email is laughable: Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition.

    Personally I'm not big on curated content because even though you use your "block quotes", etc, you still seem to not have great results in the search engines.
    I say that with the Google Panda & Penguin, you are better off just either creating your own content from scratch or hiring low budget writers for this.

      He said that it was a real pain to install it-he had to have his host enable "exec" whatever that is and they were very reluctant to do so. then he said after installing it they disabled it.

      Anybody else have any issues installing it ?

      So it has to run on your server? Any bandwidth issues if you host the videos on your site?

    Yeah curation works for sure as I curated an image site back in 2005 (before they called it curation I think) that was doing almost a half-million page views a day, most all of them were from Google. I have not touched the site since (other than maintenance) and it's still doing 30,000 to 75,000 page views a day almost 8 years later.

    Yeah, I sat on the number 1 or 2 ranks for a few very big keywords for a very long time, and the site ranked #1 or 2 on hundreds of key phrases...it's slipped to the bottom of page 1 due to pure neglect as it's on an old, old server that can't take any of the good stuff, and I will break the site if I update the server. I curated several other image sites that did well in 2006 and 2007 and are still alive today so I know curation does work, and it can be monitized, as I have had my share of $100 days and a $1000 day or two. I did not get rich off the sites but if I would have kept at it --> and monitized them better, who knows??

    Unfortunately many years later videos have overtaken images in popularity and I still own 60+ photo and image domains...woops...gotta start picking up some new domain soon! I also need to pound the social media as back in the day it was not needed and I avoided it like the plague...dumb, dumb, dumb!

    Anyway, curation works for lots of folks in many different ways!

    @Robin --> I purchased that Tom Ness charity package and never used a thing in it. Darn it. Just for grins --> what is the autoposter you used from that WSO?

    Edit: I just logged back in to the charity WSO and saw that it is AutoTube Press...I have tried that one out but have not used it for "real". In-fact I just pulled it out the other day and tried it on my test site.

    I now make it a rule to come here and check out other peoples' ideas before buying something. So thanks, everyone for this! I originally heard about this via an Affiliorama email, so I assumed Mark Ling's people could answer questions.

    They told me that I could contact the developers, and gave me a link - but it just wound up being the sales page. I couldn't discover anything else about Alex Goad except for what I read here.

    But, I really like video, and just hearing what AtlantaRobin said, above, is enough to convince me that placing appropriate videos into my content is important.

    Until I hear a lot more about this particular product, I'm going to hold off and just place them in manually. Thanks guys for all that insight!

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for checking out UVC. I thought I would respond to a couple things here.

    1. In regards to the exec function, this is required for the UVC Quick Installer which installs and sets up the various UVC components for you. It is provided as a convenience, not required. The plugin and theme can be easily installed through the normal WP interface as any plugin/theme might. 95% of people do not have a problem using this because the exec function is enable by default. However 5% or so have hosts that disable this because they are ultra security hawks and of course they won't like enabling it. I'm not saying they don't have their reasons, but it's about the equivalent of demanding to hold your 16 year old's hand while crossing the road.

    2. ForumGuru, thanks for your inputs buddy

    3. atlantarobin, you pretty much hit the nail on the head with your posts. Curation, when done right is the future. However, most don't do it properly and that's what I hope to solve with UVC. But I just want to be clear to everybody, when atlantarobin says the site is slow, she is not referring to a site she built with UVC.

    4. maverick4u, David had a problem using the Quick Installer because of his hosting. However, most don't. And if it's impossible to use the Quick Installer, you can just install the theme and plugin by uploading them via WP like any other plugin, it's just a few clicks more. The Quick Installer is there as a convenience, it's not to say you are forced to use it. It probably takes your installation time for 5-7 minutes (counting downloading, uploading and clicking activate) to 2-3 minutes using the Quick Installer.

    Thanks guys,
    Bryan

      I installed it yesterday on a domain I want to give a little life to. This will be for a local seo service, so building some ranking will be important over the next year. I had some issues with the install, but I'm also smart enough to use my host's control panel, so it wasn't an issue for long.

      My favorite part of the app is the saved searches. Basically, I can grab the top category posts of the day by region and check that daily. There are lots of other search options available. Overall the site looks pretty sweet and I'm sure mine will look better with more content and tweaking on my part.

      You will have to use the template. That's not a problem for me, because this was a new site, but if your in love with an existing template you might want to keep that in mind.

      Overall, I think this delivers on being fast and easy to use. I'm glad I picked it up.

      Well I'm in --> and I must say this system kicks a$$. I repeat...this system kicks serious a$$ and I am quite pleased to say the least!

      My initial thoughts and experiences.

      #1 After downloading the installer plugin from the members area I literally had the plugins an theme installed and my first post curated within maybe FOUR minutes or less! WoW!

      #2 Installation was very smooth on a HOSTGATOR SHARED server! No issues whatsoever.

      #3 The system worked perfectly! Just as shown in the videos!

      #4 Before curating I added a couple of Goggle Alert feeds which I already had setup in Google so this took me less than 1 minute.

      #5 The entire curated post took maybe 1.5 minutes to do and a minute to add some of my own editorial text. The post I created added the video, related videos, YT comments, text I added, YT description, title, and the cool trending section. Very Nice!

      #6 I used the theme provided and have not tried another theme yet but the system worked perfectly with the delivered theme!

      #7 The system formats the posts beautifully...no doubt about --> that and so far the page load time is good.

      #8 This is a superior system! I am going to install this on a BUNCH of domains starting TODAY.

      #9 The installer does include a bunch of plugins and the theme and I have not configured any of the plugins or the theme --> but even without any configuration my curated post went up beautifully. All of the plugins installed without a hitch. Sweet.

      #10 I'll try to add more to my review later but so far this appears to be one of the best WP tools I have purchased!

      #11 My only niggle so far is no The Best Spinner integration...only Spin ReWriter. Hopefully TBS integration will be added as that's what I am using! Are you planning to add it, Bryan?

      #12 This is a great system...no doubt about that.

      That's all for now folks. Hope it helps! IMHO this thing not only works but it exceeded my expectations!

      Hi Bryan - how do you install it without the Quick Installer? I can't install IonCube on Dreamhost and, without IonCube, cannot run the diagnostics that UVC requires prior to use.

      Thanks!

    Bryan Mc,
    A couple of questions, if I may.So do I understand this correctly, you can use videos from YT that still stay on YT. You don't have to load them to your own server at all? If so do I still need permission from the originator? Also if I purchase the UV Curator package to try it out, Can I use on several sub-domains of the master domain? Also what is the contact information for support or refunds as nothing seems to be given on the sales page? Lastly, can I then upgrade to one of the other packages in the future for the price differential? Thank you...
    Jimp1
    One other thing I forgot, in the sample site shown I didn't see it being monetized. How do you see yhat being done (besides Adsense)?

      Yes.

      True.

      If so do I still need permission from the originator?

      This is not legal advice but as I understand YT ToS YT users that are curating can embed videos that are shared on YT. If you download and or alter a video you should use Creative Commons licensed videos or get permission from the video creator. Not all marketers follow these rules, however, and some vendors may even allow their affiliates the use of (downloading) their videos for sales and marketing purposes.

      Also if I purchase the UV Curator package to try it out, Can I use on several sub-domains of the master domain?

      Yes

      Also what is the contact information for support or refunds as nothing seems to be given on the sales page?

      Support info is available in the members area and the sales page shows a 60 day satisfaction guarantee.


      Lastly, can I then upgrade to one of the other packages in the future for the price differential? Thank you...

      Probably so but Bryan would need to answer that more directly.


      Jimp1

      Build a targeted niche site and use affiliate offers for niche products targetted to that segment.

    I am in arms with what to purchase: UVC or Garity's Video Sense Pro. What i see with Garity's is easy monetization and with UVC there does not see to be any unless you add some plugins to get it in.

    If you have some dead wp blogs do you just set this up, change themes and then keep adding content or do you set up a subdomain and then add the video's?

    @A-Robin, your post inspires me, but still not exactly sure how you do it, just set up the plugin and let it run.

    I'm sitting on two fences and need some advice before I jump off and jump in knee deep. Appreciate any help I can get here.

      I have set this up straight on existing blog url with my existing theme and it works fine.

      The theme that comes with it has an option for an ad block in the header but for some reason it's not displaying my adsense block. I have inserted 468x60 code and it's not showing up. I have scanned the settings and so far I have not come up with anything.

      That said the system seems to be working fine with my original theme.

      Not sure yet on the adblock issue I am seeing...I'll do some more checking.

    @forumguru

    Thanks a ton for the reponse, I really appreciate it. Might I ask which themes you are having luck with? I have some of the old MFA themes and when I tried switching to something else it distorts the crap out of the site and I don't want to waste a day fixing it so I just go back to the old theme.

    I have one curated site from Hugh and I am using the magazine theme that is free and wondering how this would work for that.

    I'm starting to get a hang of this and when you compare this UVC to Gariety's it's kind of like, this option for that option. I like his theme better, but he doesn't include all the stuff that UVC offers.

    I am sitting here deciding because I want the unlimited version not the $10 one site option. The price difference between the 2 is $20, so that isn't much of a big deal just don't want to end up purchasing both. LOL

    @coach

    I edited my post above just a tad after reviewing the theme and some video documentation. It seems this UVC theme IS quite different than any other theme I have used --> and it appears as if it does not do a traditional site header and top menu setup.

    So if you are looking for a more traditional looking front page then you may want to go on a subdomain. If you want a straight video site then using this at top level may be OK if you can get used to the sorta non-traditional look.

    The built in theme is highly recommended by Bryan and I sorta see why...it's video, video, video and more video...everywhere. All of it's features are designed to place videos and I noticed it does not play that well with non-video posts as several of the key features seem to be looking for videos to show a thumb. It's not that you can't do ordinary non-video posts...you can but then you may not want to use some of the features that are built into the theme. At least that's what I think I am seeing so far.

    The built in theme is fairly customizable...but again it's not a "traditional looking" theme. I think I am going to run with it on a few sites top level and see how I like it. I am also gonna try some other ads in the ad block to see if I can make those work...not sure yet on why that ad block not working with my adsense ad. I have not tried any ad plugins yet but will be trying a couple soon enough. I have also not tried some of my other often used plugins so I don't know how nice they will play if used.

    As far as using other themes go --> what I am using is Photocrati that runs about $90...it's a "photographers" theme. I have also tried a few ThemeShock themes and the plugin seemed to be working on those that I tried as well.

    If you give me a link to the specific Magazine theme you are using I can check it out for you as long as it's available to download.

    I went ahead and purchased it. I loaded it on a traditional theme and it does put video inside but the related content is kind of goofy. I also loaded their theme on a site (subfolder) and put in a couple of posts but nothing is working properly. I will have to go watch the video's to see if I can get it to work properly.

    As for the adsense on their theme????? 4getaboutit. it doesn't work no matter what I tried. I will just use quick adsense like I have on many other sites. That is one of the reasons why I struggled with this purchase--gariety has a more user friendly theme package from what I saw. Oh well, I'll give this a honest try and if I can't get the theme to work like they show, it's refund time.

      Warrior davidalpha1 has his site running on a subdomain so it's possible...his site looks like mine except his RSS feeds were not running. I am not sure what the deal was with that. Maybe he did not have them setup properly or long enough to pull data from the RSS. But for sure his theme looked like it should.

      Yeah, I also gave up on the built in adsense block for now and am going to use my own plugins for ads as well.

      I own a couple of Garety plugins...RSS Curator I really like but I was hating my inbox filling up with his damn emails. I asked him if I could get on a support only list and he told me to go jump...if I want good prices then I must eat the emails! We went round and round on that. I'm off his list now! I believe his last email to me was to read the "7 Habits of Highly Effective People". Luckily, I have had that book on my shelves for probably a decade! Anyway, I just tried to get a deal on an RSS Curator upgrade to pro a couple of days ago...but his only deal available was $47. Bummer!

      I hope you get satisfaction on this! Good luck!

    Thanks for stopping by. What drives me nuts about video training is you have to watch the whole dam thing to get one question answered. To bad you didn't have an outline so we could quickly go to it. Like:

    How to get rid of comments once you post
    Feeds and how to make them work
    Why I can't change Main Body Background Color
    Why I can't change any of the site colors
    Why only have the theme options will work
    Why I can't add tags to posts

    Yada, yada, yada.

    I know I am old, I know I can't read, but why is this about the only place you can get some help within a relative short amount of time.

      Not sure if you were still having trouble or were just making the comment so I'll offer a bit of input just in-case you are still having issues.

      Feeds - Login to your Google account and set up the feeds --> set them to "as it happens".

      Google Alerts - Monitor the Web for interesting new content

      Background Color - Not sure what's going on there. It's working for me just drag the little circle to the color you want and then click the color wheel and save.

      Site Colors - My color options are working by using the same procedure I described above.

      Tags - Tags are working for me and I can also add tags via the edit post option.

      Theme Options - For me all seem to be working except for the ad block Bryan addressed.

      Comments - Those may not be so easy to get rid of once posted.

      Hope that helps a little. If not you then you should probably contact support.

      Best of luck.

      I have not been here in a loooong time. Spent way too much money and it was time to make some $$. BUT, having said that, I got an email just a few days ago which I would normally have deleted but it grabbed my attention. There are two places I spend WAYYY too much time on and that is Pinterest and Youtube . I have over 180 websites and some of them are on a shelf getting dusty. Right away I thought, heck if people spent that much time on my site that would be phenomenal!! You group all your videos under topics. Are you looking for inspirational videos, weight loss, everything about Jack Canfield or some tear jerking speeches by Nick Vujicic
      1. This software is amazing. I put my first site up in minutes, found videos for my niche fast, put up my first post in a short time and thought WOW. Set up another one, and another one... and that was even faster. It was 1:00 in the morning and I thought holy crap.
      2. Support for this program 10+. We have our own private facebook group and there are seasoned veterans to newbies in there who are all helping each other!!
      3. I even switched an old site to this theme to see what would it would like. Just a few minor changes and BAM no problem
      4. As for issues, sure there will be hiccups with any software. Come on guys..look at Windows. Nothing is perfect right out the gate but I am loving what i see right now.
      5. I have been online since 1998 and buying a lot of programs and this one has not disappointed me Bryan McConnahea.
      6. And WHOEVER said hey it is just some young guy. So was the developer of Facebook. Good to see a new face and one that I can trust to put out solid stuff
      For the critics ~~ seriously? If you have not tried it and only try it to critic that something does not work you are losing out on the magic of this.

      Now back to figuring what other site I am going to put this magic dust on

      Well, I was certainly looking forward to this...but am now going to have to ask for a refund.

      I purchased this yesterday and found that my web host, Dreamhost, does not offer IonCube. Per the UVC developer's suggestion, I asked Dreamhost to install IonCube on my sites.

      Dreamhost sent me a reply with a wiki attached telling my how to do this myself. Unfortunately, the instructions are incomprehensible. Dreamhost, even, recognizes the difficulty in understanding the instructions and posts this warning on the wiki:

      "The instructions provided in this article or section are considered advanced.

      You are expected to be knowledgeable in the UNIX shell.

      Support for these instructions is not available from DreamHost tech support.

      Server changes may cause this to break. Be prepared to troubleshoot this yourself if this happens.

      We seriously aren't kidding about this."


      I know NOTHING about UNIX shell and am unwilling to attempt this.

      For anyone else considering UVC (which sounds great, btw) who uses Dreamhost, you should know going in about this.

      I just hope the developers honor the 60-day refund. Sigh...

      An update:

      I tried to send a message to "support@fueledpublishing.com" - the address supplied to me in may welcome/thank you for buying email, and it was returned as undeliverable.

      Does anyone know how to reach support for this product?

    I am not sure of the general consensus. Should I get it or not? If Aidan is not contactable how does one get a refund. Anyone know if this is compatible with Namecheap hosting. Please advise, thanks.

    Now, suppose I have permission to use someone's video on our site. Would it be advisable to upload that video to Amazon s3 to avoid bandwidth issues? I'm looking to run UVC on a hostgator shared account.

    I have been seriously studying UVC, particularly about whether the theme will display Adsense ads.

    The following is surely a turn off:

    "Jimp1
    One other thing I forgot, in the sample site shown I didn't see it being monetized. How do you see yhat being done (besides Adsense)?

    Build a targeted niche site and use affiliate offers for niche products targetted to that segment."

    If I heard it right, no Adsense ads will be displayed. Very important to me since the Adsense Program had been paying my modest living expenses.

      See post #43...quick adsense seems to be working.

      Bryan says in post #49 that the built in block has also been fixed but I have not checked it.
