YouTube Digital Residuals by  Lucas Lee Tyson – How It Really Works

Once you click on the YouTube Ad about Digital Residuals Program you’d redirected to a website Once you make payment for the program which is actually an ebook, the deception begins to unfold.

First of all, the YouTube Digital Residuals is marketed misleadingly. The claim that you can get YouTube to pay you without making videos is all exaggeration.

In the real sense, YouTube Digital Residuals is all about teaching you how to create a course and sell it using YouTube Ads. Basically how to strategically place your Ads before related videos on YouTube. Users are thought a whole bunch of marketing trick in order to oversell a course on YouTube.

The Ads make it look like there’s a system or tool with which people can link to YouTube to earn money without making videos.

Red Flags

Questionable System

Lucas Lee Tyson claims to have a system that makes him outsmart the YouTube algorithm. For example, if someone is watching a video about how to build a minecraft server he will put an ad on that video (before it starts) selling a online ebook about how to setup and start a minecraft server.

But YouTube advertising doesn’t work that way. You can’t target a specific video, but a general niche. So this system of his is pure hog wash.


The information Lucas is selling in his Digital Residual Program is basic digital marketing and shouldn’t cost that much. The program isn’t a new invention or whatever. With $20, I can get a digital marketing course on Amazon that contains more robust information.
