Welcome to my Whiteboard Profits Academy review. I saw that this was being launched today so I decided to take a look at it to see whether it’s legit or a scam…
Product Name: Whiteboard Profits Academy
Owner: Vu Binh Minh (Dawn)
Price: $27 + Huge Upsells
My Rating: Not Recommended
Alternative Product: AniMax Video Bundle
What is Whiteboard Profits Academy?
Whiteboard videos have become very popular recently. These are videos where someone narrates over the top of an animation of someone drawing pictures on a whiteboard. Whiteboard Profits Academy will enable you to create great whiteboard videos yourself, as explained in this short whiteboard video:
I have to admit, I do like whiteboard videos. They do capture your attention and make it easier to understand the message being put across. The question is: is Whiteboard Profits Academy worth buying?
How much does Whiteboard Profits Academy cost?
Well, the initial launch price is $17, after which it increases to $27. Things don’t end there, though. Once you buy the product, you are put through a sales funnel where they try to get you to spend more money.
The Sales Funnel
So, as you can see, after paying $17 or $27 for the main product, you will be offered another product for $27 or $57, then another product for $67, then a final product for $197. If you were to buy all of those at full price, you would end up spending $348 rather than the $17 or $27 you thought you were going to pay.
These OTOs, or upsells, are a sneaky way of trying to squeeze extra money out of you once you are in buying mode. You have already committed to buying the main product, so it is easy to then convince you to buy another product, then another product, then another product. Internet marketers do this because it works. It gets more money for them and their affiliates. It is deceptive, though.
What are these extra products?
Whenever I find out that a product has upsells, I like to know what they are and whether they are essential. I took a look, and this is what they will try to get you to buy:
- OTO1: More SVGs + 1-Year Video Evaluation – why aren’t all the SVGs included in the main product? Are they really worth as much as $57? It does include a 1-year video evaluation service, but it’s impossible to know how good that would be. He might just say your videos are great.
- OTO2: PLR License – this gives you the right to resell the product. Is it worth $67 to be able to do that? You could just save your money and spend your time selling other things instead. It’s your choice really.
- OTO3: Custom SVG creation service – I suppose this could be worthwhile if you are wanting to create a lot of videos in very specific niches not covered by the included SVGs.
One other problem – where’s the video creation software?
So, you could pay as much as $348 but still not actually have any video creation software. This product seems to assume you already have some kind of video creation app. It says it works with the following video makers:
- Easy Sketch Pro
- TTS Sketch Maker
Sorry, but if I’m going to pay up to $348, I want it to be a full system, including the video creation software itself. I suspect this product is going to be pitched to people who already own the programs mentioned above. Actually, I wouldn’t be surprised if you found out about Whiteboard Profits Academy from an owner or affiliate of one of those video making programs.
Is Whiteboard Profits Academy a scam?
Scam is a very harsh word, so perhaps I need to be careful not to be so quick to label Whiteboard Profits Academy a scam as such. It really depends on how you define the word “scam”. Some people tend to think that if a product has lots of upsells/OTOs then it must be a scam. Other people think that upsells are just a standard marketing tactic and don’t mean it’s a scam.
Ultimately, though, the question you need to ask yourself is: is it worth paying up to $348 to get an incomplete whiteboard video making system? I think it’s probably not, but I’ll leave the final decision up to you. However, you might want to take a look at AniMax Video Bundle instead.
