This is a small pet peeve,
When advertising a tool you're trying to sell, IMO you should show the tool being used  properly (best case scenario). There are those who do not know any better that will mimic what they see in an advertisement and could injure themselves.

In the photo for the tool, the operator is clearly performing a climb cut (up-hill or against the grain) this type of cut is sometimes necessary but is usually avoided at all costs as the potential for tear-out (or worse) is greatly increased, just as it is in wood turning.
I personally think this type of practice is irresponsible.

I would like to see the correct procedure only cause I can't figure out another way to approach the bit.

That does not look like a climb cut to me.  The router bit would be rotating in a counter clockwise direction and the uncut wood protruding from under the jig is to the left of the bit, so the cutting edge would be turning through an already cut area and removing a chip from the uncut area as it exits the workpiece, pulling the jig into the guide bearing.  The movement of the workpiece is against the rotation of the bit, as it should be, rather than in the same direction as the rotation of the bit which would be a climb cut. 

I don't see why you are calling it a climb cut when it clearly is not.

The video is correct, but there is also another image on the webpage that is showing a climb cut.

Approach the wood on the side grain and move towards the end grain.

The image above shows the person starting at the end grain and moving towards the side grain. You will notice that there is a little shaving of wood that is peeling over the bit. That is what will tear out. (Click on the image to get a bigger preview)

Nice image capture. Thumbs Up

I apologize for any confusion I may have caused when I said "climb' cut.
In the initial moment I saw this, my first impression was that something (I wasn't sure what) didn't look right. So I started the Q&A process in my head,
what is he doing
surely he can't be doing what it looks like
is he climb cutting, I don't think so
why doesn't he flip that over
why is he going the wrong way
surely that's going to split
is the photo reversed, no
etc
I started writing my initial post before the dust settled, sorry.
