Created by Hani Mourra and Sean Malarkey, Simple Video Press is a WordPress plugin that can automatically take videos that you upload to YouTube and create posts from them.
What is the product?
Simple Video Press is a WordPress Plugin that integrates your YouTube account into your WordPress website. It does this by taking a video that you have posted and creating a new post with titles, headings, keywords etc. that can be either automatically uploaded or saved as a draft for further editing. Hani Mourra and Sean Malarkey have also added a number of additional features to Simple Video Press that are arguably more beneficial than this. For example you can create your own watermark and have it appear on the video on your site. Simple Video Press also comes with options to customise what the player looks like and arguably most valuable, the option to have opt in forms and external links to the videos that are on your site.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
There are three different licenses available for Simple Video Press. The first of these is a single site license which costs $29, a multi-site license that costs $49 and a professional license which allows you to install Simple Video Press on as many websites as you want. This option also comes with the option to sell a website with Simple Video Press installed. All of these come with a 60 day money back guarantee as Simple Video Press is sold through Clickbank. In terms of potential income it is a very difficult thing to predict. Hani Mourra and Sean Malarkey don’t make any claims and the fact is that Simple Video Press is not really a direct money making product.
Does the product provide value for money?
If the majority of your marketing is handled through videos or many of your products are hosted on YouTube then there may be some value in Simple Video Press but otherwise I am not convinced.
The uses for Simple Video Press are not exactly plentiful however if you are heavily involved in video marketing through YouTube there’s a lot here to like. Really though, Simple Video Press works for a pretty tight niche and at this point you will likely already know if this is something that you would get use out of.
