What is Easy VSL?
Text to Video Software
Firstly what is VSL? – it means Video Sales Letter, so imagine being able to paste text into a video script transcriber that will transform your words into an audio video presentation – in an instant.
Yes, you can turn text into video, you can take any article and create an audio/ video presentation or ‘sales letter’ and post on your blog, website or youtube and publish all over the internet.
If you can type, then you can create a high quality, information video, a training demonstration or video sales presentation, in less than 10 minutes. See video example below:
There Are Many Pathways
Most people don’t realize that there are many different paths to creating a successful online business, every website is different.
“One of the most common online income strategies is to create a website and publish keyword targeted articles and wait for the visitors to come by“.
If you set up enough of these pages and websites you can make a lot of money and if you are someone who creates info-products and then you need to create a sales page for each of those products and try to bring in traffic. Of course, there’s also the possibility to expand your income through affiliates.
This strategy – however – is not as easy as it sounds.
Unless of course you are an expert in sales and writing quality content and other conversion tricks. The number of articles needed may be fewer. But typically the more articles and written content you have ‘the wider the net‘ so to speak, the greater the chance of success.
But if you don’t like the idea of writing hundreds of articles, then this new software may be a godsend for you.
Online Marketing with Videos
If you aren’t yet using videos for your online marketing efforts, you are really missing out on a lot of traffic & conversions.
Studies have shown that video marketing converts as high as 30% more, than the standard all text website, which typically convert at only 1 – 3%.
There is no doubt that video is quickly becoming the fastest growing method used today for getting marketing messages and content online to attract visitors and this type of marketing is also proving to be the easiest ways to get a lot more free traffic.
So if you really want to boost the conversions of your sales pages then you should consider creating a video sales letter (because they convert at a higher rate than text).
But, There’s A Problem
Creating Sales Videos is a hassle, it can be expensive and complicated and often is a big hurdle to overcome in order to create a quality video sales page.
Well, that’s where Easy VSL 2.0. comes into the picture

Easy VSL 2.0 Review
The purpose of this product is to provide internet marketers with software that allows them to create high-quality video sales letters – simply. The concept of a text sales script with voice over has been used very successfully by most of the top marketers for a while now but they were often difficult and time-consuming to produce. So only the ‘big boys‘ or those who could afford them made, used them.
Now that has all changed and I have to admit it’s useful software in that it makes the entire process from text to video very, very easy and quick.
Compared to other video creation products in this niche, it’s a little more expensive, but if you are serious about creating video sales letters (or you want to create a lot) then this is a worthy investment and nothing matches it for the sheer speed it can create a sales video from text. You will be amazed.
Let’s take a look at the features.
Easy VSL 2.0 Features
The product includes many features that can be used to create top-notch video sales letters as good as the best you have ever seen.
First, there are plenty of templates to choose from. You can even use your own custom template, images, or plain text. You can import photos, screenshots, and even videos onto the slides to make your presentation. (I think the selection of available templates is quite useful).
Second, there’s no need to create lots of individuals slides. (This is a huge time saver!) All you have to select which templates you want to use and then upload your text. Then you choose which part of the script you want to appear on which slide, by copying and pasting a simple symbol to different areas in the text.
Then, click next, and all the slides are created for you. You can then edit and reorder the slides as you wish.
Third, voice over recording feature. You have a few options here.
- You can record your voice in-sync with the slides on the screen.
- You can have the software create a voice over for you. (A really useful feature – I really like this option)
- You can upload an already premade voice-over track*.
*If you don’t have a high quality microphone when creating your own voiceover, it might lower the quality of the video. However you can always use Audacity a free downloadable multi-track audio editor and recorder that you can use to make quality audio tracks or hire a professional voice over artist to keep it really top quality (You can find these services on Fiverr – for example).
- Automatic Slide Creation
- Custom Background Themes
- Dozens of Fonts and Font Sizes to Choose From
- Insert Video Anywhere
- Publish High-Quality Video Files
- Easy Slide Timing
- Simple Audio Controls
- Speech to Text option
- Automatic Translation into different languages
- Entirely Click Based
- And Much More!
As you can see, this program has plenty of features that allow you to create the best video sales letters for your presentation and product promotions.
What I Liked The Most
There are quite a few things that I like about Easy VSL 2.0…
For starters, I like the entire user-interface and design. It’s really simple and there’s only very small learning curve, unlike other video editing programs.
I also really like how this program eliminates the need for you to use several different third party programs to create a video presentation. You don’t need to open an audio editing program and a slide show program and another program for graphics.
VSL 2.0 includes all of these features in convenient place. It’s a complete package and includes the best of all the video editing and audio editing programs.
I also liked how it’s easy to divide the script into individual slides. It takes a couple of seconds, and this could be done automatically too, but I recommend that you create your own script breaks because the software doesn’t always create the script on the slides, exactly as you may want.
The speech to text option I thought was really great because you can also select the language you want and the software will create the voice over to match your script, without the need to add a separate audio track.
I especially liked how once you have your script setup, you can then change the wording on the slide so that the voice over could be different to the visual text or how the text can be invisible (hidden under a photo or image) and the voice over will still be as you scripted. This feature alone opens up numerous possibilities to insert photos and images to keep your viewers engaged.
Another feature that I thought was cool is the automatic translation feature. This allows you to copy a script and then translate a script into any language that you desire. It’s perfect for marketing to non-English speakers! (However be aware that, as with most ‘computer translation programs’, they are not always 100% accurate, so some fine tuning may be required)
What I Didn’t Like
The one problem I had with this product, was the initial offer price, because when you see the price tag ($97) you’ll probably be put off, or at least be a little reluctant unless you have a good budget.
Then I didn’t like that there are 4 up-sells on top of that. I’m sure these are all useful but I don’t like being hit with ad-ons when all I want is the main product.
I don’t know why the product creators do this (perhaps it makes the initial offer seem cheaper?) Because there’s really no way to know if it’s right for your business without first buying the product.
No Free Trial Period
I think it would be much better if there was a free trial version to let people get the feel of the product, because once you see what it can do – you will be very impressed.
But, that’s a problem for the product creator to overcome.
I know, I was resistant at first. BUT now that I had it, I loved it and think the price was a small issue. In fact I believed it’s very inexpensive for what it can do and I’m sure you will too, once you get to see how quick and easy it makes creating marketing videos can be.
The other issue is the automatic translator, as I have already said (and it’s the same for Google translator as well). Individual words or short sentences are ok but anything too long will get lost in translation. So be aware that it doesn’t translate long sentences very accurately. I recommend hiring an actual human translator (like on Fiverr) to take a look at the final product and fix any mistakes.
There is now an updated version VSL 3.0 which is more expensive and has an ongoing monthly or yearly renewal fee.
- $97.00 (then $9.97 each month) OR $197.00 yearly
It has better features than version 2.0 and solves some of the technical issues that version 2.0 had. Unfortunately they haven’t really given any existing 2.0 version owners / users a great deal to upgrade, to version 3.0, which is a little disappointing.
“I did attempt contact them, to ask about this, as I an existing customer and have version 2.0. But after many emails and attempts to contact the owners (or in fact anyone) I got no response”.
You can view the updated version 3.0 in the video below.
Other than those issues, with the 2.0 version, that seems to be solved with the new 3.0 version. The product is top-notch, and I do recommend it for anyone who is planning on creating a lot of marketing videos, video sales letters and information videos.
I would suggest that you only buy this program if you plan to create multiple sales videos (and once you see how quick and easy it can be done – you will).
It might not be worth it, if you just want to create is one or two videos. It depends on your project, your budget and you long term plans for your internet business.
All in all, I recommend this product, it’s an awesome tool, (despite their poor customer service). You can use to spice up your sales pages and boost conversion, earning more money in the long-run!
