How To Setup A YouTube Channel The Correct Way
– Hello everybody on the Internet, this is your insightful and helpful YouTube expert, Derral Eves. Are you looking to start a new YouTube channel or you’re looking to grow an audience from small numbers to big numbers? Well, if you’re interested, this is the video for you. And let me tell you why, is because today, I actually have one of my subscribers coming on, one that actually reached out to me when I had a little celebration of 100,000 subscribers and I wanted to make a specific video, and I actually selected him to do a channel evaluation. But guys, this channel evaluation is going to be completely different than other channel evaluations before, and the reason why is because we’re going to give a lot more tips than just the five tips. I literally have taken him through the process of how to really build a channel and to grow a channel right from the beginning. So if you’re interested in really building an audience on YouTube or expanding your views or whatever it may be, then this video is for you. So let’s do this. (epic music) – [Voiceover] derralEVES.com – Now if you’re really looking to grow this audience on YouTube, there’s a lot of little things that you need to do. Now for those that really don’t know what I do for a living, I actually do consulting and marketing strategies for some of the top businesses and brands and YouTube channels in the world. And let me tell you, I love what I do. And the reason why I started this channel is to help everyone, find a way that I can make these little videos that people can really learn how to have better tactics on YouTube and really understand how YouTube operates. And I really, really love what I do. I really love this channel, I really love going out and consult and working on these strategies. However, I get a lot of requests from people out there in the world for me to help them one-on-one, and I’m not able to do it. I’m really not and the reason why is there’s only so much time in the day. And so I thought, you know what, this is a great way that I can actually give back and do a specific video and take someone through the process the same way I actually would a client. And I don’t know if you remember but last, a couple of months ago, I had this little celebration video that I was putting together and I had my subscribers, you, submit some video responses. And I went through it and I was literally blown away at all the different responses that actually came in, people, what they were wanting to do on YouTube, their desires, their love, their passion, why they’re on YouTube specifically. Here, let’s just watch a quick clip. – It would be my YouTube dream to grow my channel to 5000 subscribers by summertime. – And my YouTube dream is to teach people my simple, delicious home-made recipe, which I showcase on my channel. – My YouTube dreams are just to get as many subscribers as I can and just to make awesome videos to make you guys laugh and enjoy my channel. – And my YouTube dream is that my channel continues to grow as it has, largely due to your help. – [Voiceover] And my dreams are to really help a lot of people who want to get bigger and stronger. – A YouTube community in Tulsa that is so big and so active that YouTube has no choice but to bring a YouTube studio right here to Tulsa, Oklahoma. – So it would be nice if I could reach more animation fans and get more people to become fans of my animations. – Psst, to quit my day job. – Now one of the submissions that came through really just got me to the core. I’m like oh, my goodness. I literally need to reach out to this person. And I went on Facebook, I did a little stalking, and I found Nick and we kind of had a little dialogue and Nick actually doing some things on YouTube and I’d like to introduce you to Nick Nimman right now. Hey, Nick, how’s it goin’? – Doing excellent, Derral, thank you. – Hey first off, I’m a fan of what you got going on right now. But it wasn’t always this way, and you are doing some stuff on YouTube, so could you take some time and let people know what you were doing, a little bit who you are, where you’re at in the world, and let’s kind of have this conversation. – Okay, yeah, sounds great. Well, who I am. My name is Nick, I’m a graphic designer and now a YouTuber, and I am in Thailand. That is my place in the world right now. And basically, my channel that I had before, well, I mean, I still have the channel, is making random videos giving tips and tricks to people to make YouTube videos and people that are trying to make videos for their business and things like that. And what happened is basically, after I saw Derral’s video asking for submissions, I said to myself, you know, I got to submit to this guy, I’ve been watching him for a long time so I got to send him a video and if nothing else… I even mentioned in the video I don’t think you actually put it in your clip, but I said if nothing else, I just want to let him know that I appreciate what he does on YouTube and sharing all the information that he does with his subscribers. And when I made that video, I submitted it to him, and then he contacted me back and said “Dude, you’re doing the wrong thing.” And that pretty much started our dialogue and that has gotten us to where we are today, one week and just a little bit more than one week into the live channel. – What was really interesting, Nick, is I think that was my first words to you, isn’t it? I guess I was a little too blunt. We talked for a little bit, but I’m like, okay, I don’t beat around the bush. I’m going to just tell you how it is and like, you’re doing the wrong thing. – Yeah, you got right to it, that’s for sure. You got right to it. – Well, but the whole thing is I actually saw something in your video submission, and I want to talk about that for a little bit. It kind of blew me away. First off, the video quality was amazing. Of course, you have some great video quality, you were given tips on that. But it wasn’t the video quality that made me go hmmm, I need to reach out to this guy. You actually delivered content with energy, and I’m like, man, this guy reminds me of Vsauce kind of a little bit. It was like that little style a little bit, but you actually had your own little flare to it. And it was engaging and I’m like man, I was actually interested in the video not just because it was talking about me, but I was interested in the video and I’m like man, I wonder what he could do and that’s when I reached out to you and I was quite blunt saying, “Hey you might be going the right direction,” or I think I was actually a little bit more… – [Nick] Oh yeah. – [Derral] Vocal. – Yeah, a lot more blunt than that. – Because you’re doing it all wrong. Not all wrong but anyway, it developed a little conversation and what I would like to do is take some time now, Nick, right now and help my subscribers, like you out there, know the process that we actually went through. And I actually have the same process. When I get a new client, I go through the exact same process, doesn’t matter if they’re a Fortune 100 company, an entertainer, a YouTuber, a brand or a business, I go through this process and the reason why is because there’s certain things that everyone needs to do if they’re looking to succeed on YouTube. Or actually, to succeed to get that audience development, because that’s what we’re talking about here, that it needs to happen. Do you remember, I know this is back in February, but do you remember the first thing that I had you do? I think it was like the very first thing after I told you, you were doing it wrong, but it was one of your assignments and tasks to do. Do you remember that? – The very first thing you had me do was read Primal branding. – I did! – [Nick] yeah. – The whole thing about it is this is what I have my clients do as well, is because Patrick Hanlon, I had him on a little discussion, a little interview, wrote an amazing book, and what I love about it is it puts everything into perspective of really creating an audience. All the things that you need to do. Now he gives seven different tactics to do that. If you’re interested, look in the link below in the description, I’ll put a link to that specific video. But he goes through seven things that we all need to do to develop a tribe, and then he actually came out with another book called Social Code, that goes little bit more in depth and it’s kind of an updated version that you can probably read in an afternoon. However, the thing about it is I want people in the mindset of all this branding that actually occurs, all this audience development that occurs in a way that we don’t look at. You might kind of see it, but you really don’t see some of the things because it’s just really in our culture and it’s just basically what it is. And Primal branding really identifies what those are and groups them in a way that you’re like, “Oh my gosh, “I never thought about it like that, “or I’ve never seen that. “Okay, now that makes sense.” So we talked about Primal branding, we also took some time to talk about doing a new channel. What was your first reaction, Nick, when I told you hey, just start a new channel. What did you think about that? – It took me about probably five to 10 seconds to actually let it sink in that I’m doing the wrong thing. To think, huh, this is Derral Eves, and he’s telling me that hey, dude, you’re doing the wrong thing, right? So it took me five to 10 seconds for that to actually sink in, you know, a little pride hit. And then from there, I got excited about it. Here’s this guy that has no reason to reach out to me, and he’s reached out and he’s given me his advice on what he thinks that I should do with the time that I spend on YouTube. I was grateful for it. – And the thing for me is I knew you had passion, and I wanted to know where that passion was. And we actually had a discussion about passion, of what you liked to do or what really interests you. And you actually had an idea that has been in your head for quite some time, you just never really ran with it. Can you kind of explain that idea? Yeah, the idea for the channel was basically to answer the questions that we all have. – Yeah, and do it in a way that’s entertaining and really engaging. And so Nick had this thing in his mind for years of hey, I want to kind of do this but never really made it happen. I think the blunt conversation got it to start, wouldn’t you say? – Oh, without question. Like, there’s not even a hesitation on the thought. I mean, as soon as that conversation started and you started talking about ideas and things that I would want to do and stuff like that, I mean, that came right to the forefront of my mind as far as hey, this might be a chance to run with this idea. – So the first thing outside of Primal branding and really understanding, creating this audience, we did recon. Recon is the most important thing that you can do when preparing a marketing campaign. You need to go through the process of understanding what’s actually working out in the world, why does it work, have your data, make the analysis. And we actually went through a couple of channels. Now do you remember any of the channels that I kind of pointed you to and we had a discussion on what they were doing right and it would be more similar audiences? Do you remember that, Nick? – Yeah, Numberphile, SmarterEveryDay was one. There’s a king, gosh, what is it? – [Derral] Yeah, it’s King of Random. And yes, it’s not the same type, but it’s like the same type of delivery, you’re giving content out there. And so one of the reasons why we discussed Numberphile and SmarterEveryDay because those are the types of videos that Nick would be producing. However, King of Random is like making random, different things that happen with science and technology. And I wanted to show him that and have him dig deep into it a little bit because there was a lot of elements that Grant Thompson is doing right, you know? The things that he was doing to build his audience and how he was engaging and how he made it interesting, it has a lot to do with delivery, and I think the biggest thing of Numberphile and SmarterEveryDay and even Grant Thompson’s channel, King of Random, is their delivery method. And what did you think about, okay, when we went through, we did an evaluation of some competitors out there or people that were actually making it in the industry, what was your first thought? Did you feel like you could actually do this? Or was this something like okay, maybe a little hesitant? – I knew that I had the technical know-how as far as the equipment and how to use the equipment and things like that. But the initial jump was a little intimidating because here’s these guys that have been doing this for a long time, and there’s somebody new trying to come in and trying to run alongside of these guys. Because technically, we’re targeting the same people, we’re all going after curious people, right? So to make the jump and say, okay, I’m prepared to put in the work necessary to try to run alongside of these guys, it was a little intimidating for sure. – Well, and here’s the thing… – Motivating also. – Motivating for sure, but here’s the thing. Your direction isn’t necessarily the same as Numberphile, it’s not the same as SmarterEveryDay and it’s definitely not the same as King of Random. You had a path. Yes, you have a similar audience, but people like to consume content and they’re only going to put out so much content in a given week, and we are basically competing for other people’s time. And if you even have a similar type of channel, not necessarily the same type of videos, but you do it in a way that you’re engaging and the video is engaging and the script is clever, then you’re knocking it out of the park. Now I know after this, we went through that process of here’s some ideas. We kind of brainstormed a little bit on some ideas that you could make videos for. And you had a few that you already had in your mind because in your mind, you already said, oh this is something I’d like to do, I’m not necessarily there, and you had a couple of ideas. And do you remember what happened next? I actually remember in the sense of… because I do this with every client, I actually have them make some samples. Do you remember that? – That part was even more intimidating than thinking hey, I’m going to run up against these guys because I knew, when I’m putting these together, I’m thinking he’s going to look at these, like here’s where the judgment is going to fall, right? So making the videos and when I was initially putting them together, it was intimidating but it was also motivating and inspiring to try to make something that was as good as I could make it. But yeah, I put together the two videos and submitted those to you and waited, biting my nails waiting for the feedback on it. – Now I wasn’t as blunt as saying hey, you’re going the wrong direction on the feedback. The videos were really good. I wanted to see the capability, the turnaround, the writing that needed to occur. And he turned it around quick. I was actually surprised how quick it was there. I think you were quite motivated to get it turned around. – Absolutely, yeah, absolutely I was. – And when we went through it, it was good. It was good quality videos but, I gave you some feedback. Do you remember that feedback? – Yeah, you gave me editing advice, for example, on one of the videos that I submitted to you, it was almost 8 minutes long. So one of the first things you said is hey, you got to cut the time down on these. You gave me advice on the branding for the channel. Basically, you’re saying you got to work branding into your videos as far as… At the time, I had just a normal logo intro that you see all over YouTube where people, they cut out the actual video and make an animated logo, kind of like you probably saw at the beginning of the video that you’re watching right now. But you told me for my type of channel that I needed to change that, and other branding advice that you gave me as far as the end video stuff. – Yeah, and that’s the big thing, is going through and picking the different parts of creating the video. I didn’t give him much direction on how to actually make the video before. I just wanted to see what he could do on his own. And Nick, like he said in the beginning of this video, he’s a student of Tim Schmoyer, David Walsh, myself and others that are out there, so he had a lot of tips and techniques that he already knew and you applied them, right? – Oh yeah, absolutely. I mean, I might not be the smartest guy in the world, but I’m smart enough to know that if other people are doing something that I’m interested in, and they’re having success at it? They’re most likely the people that I need to listen to and that’s the advice that I need to follow in order to make something that’s a similar product. – So as we did the feedback with Nick, we took some time and really went through the feedback of the videos. The next thing that we actually did was go for topics, topics that he could actually do. Do you remember how many topics I had you make? – It was right around 100. I think it might have been 100 exactly. You had me come up with 100 different ideas of videos that I had to research. It wasn’t just come up with ideas off the top your head. You actually had me get into the details of stuff that people are actually looking for. – So you were doing a lot more recon, going out and trying to figure out, okay, now I have a channel, I’ve made two videos, this guy is making me go out and find 100 different topics. – [Nick] Right. – Oh wow. – There was a week of my life gone, right? Hunting down 100 topics. – But did you see how you thought your channel was before you went through these topics and how it was after you found those topics? I mean, did you have any aha moments at that time? – Well one thing that stood out to me was a lot of the things that I see on YouTube are people looking for ideas for stuff. For this particular channel, it showed me that basically, people are always asking questions. So as long as I researched them properly, there’s a good chance that I can reach a lot of people and answer the questions that everybody’s got. – Yeah, and that’s great. And I think the big thing too, is going through the process and put you in the mindset, okay, I’m going to be serious about this. we’re going to go through and do 100 topics, and figure out what’s going to work. We actually went through a couple of things, and this is something that you guys want to take note on, I had Nick not only go through the process of going out and searching what questions that people are searching for, but see what would be trending. We talked about trending topics. We said look, Star Wars is coming out. You need a Star Wars video. I’m curious about Star Wars. I’m a Star Wars geek, you’re a Star Wars geek. What would people be asking? And we had strategic timing videos, those are called, those types of videos, when you’re piggybacking on top of a trending topic, it would be a tent-pole marketing strategy, where you’re really capitalizing on these key events. And I remember, of those hundred, I think it was like 20-ish or so. I made you go and really figure out what would be an evergreen strategy of okay, something that happens every year that you can answer that people would be searching for at different times in the year. – Yeah. Yeah, that and the stuff that people are constantly searching for in general. Not just the yearly events, but you had me search down, in addition to that, you had me search down things that people are searching for every single day. – So that’s the key right there. So he went through his recon, he was collecting information, he was checking with other channels to see what they’re doing right, what he liked about it, he made some sample videos that had some feedback, and that feedback is critical. And I know I’m not the only one that you showed, I know that you showed it to other people, other people gave you feedback too that you took that advice as well. And the key next would be, we went over branding, and we went over how to really build an audience. And I gave you some advice that was really, really critical that I believe of building a YouTube audience but it wasn’t building an audience on YouTube. Do you remember what that advice was? – Well, you shared with me the importance of getting your Facebook, your Twitter, your domain name, basically any social outlet that you can so that when people are searching for you, or you’re searching for people to watch your videos to where you have a greater chance of contacting or being in front of other people through the other networks besides just YouTube. – Yeah, other networks besides YouTube. And first off, you wanted to do the branding, like what we talked about. What would be a great name? Well, is the dotcom available? Well, yes it is. Well, is all the other social profiles available? Well, yes they are. So go out, buy the domain name, get all the social profiles all set up, that way you have consistent branding across the Internet. And it didn’t take very much time for you to do that, and then the next thing was, okay, what type of logos can you make? Now you as a graphic designer… – [Nick] It made it a little bit easier. – What’s that? – I said that side of it made it a little bit easier on my end, being a graphic designer already. – Yeah, and you were able to do that, you were able to do your channel art. Now those individuals that don’t do that, there’s a great place called fiverr.com. You can look in the link below in the description to figure it out. Great service, you can find a designer that can help you get these things that we’re talking about created as well. So we talked about those branding elements, but there’s also… – And you had me, like, I actually put together, if you remember, I put together a handful of samples, and we actually bounced those back and forth too to make sure that we had the logo dialed in and that we had everything dialed in right. – Yeah, and that’s critical too, is keep making sure that it all flows and go from there. But I also talked about some branding that you didn’t really realize that was branding at the time. I mean, I think you did, but you didn’t really include that in our branding discussion, which was catchphrases. – [Nick] Yes. – Tell me about that a little bit. – Well, when we later talked about the catchphrases, I ended up going back into my videos because they were already recorded at that time, so I went back into my videos and I added a lower third call to action. Basically, the whole idea is that you were wanting me to get more viewer interaction. So basically, instead of just throwing my videos at viewers, I’m trying to get them to interact on my channel or basically start a conversation with me. – Yeah, and I think the catchphrases in this earlier on, we talked about catchphrases and how to do social callouts a couple of times. The first time that we did it, the discussion was early on, before you made any videos besides the two, was what you were going to say at the beginning of every video, and more at the end. So what do you say at the beginning of every video? – I’m Nick, welcome to All Our Questions, where I search the Internet for questions that we all want answers to, and I answer them. Today’s question is, and then I fill in the blank. – Boom, right there. So that right there, pretty much every video of that specific style, you’ll be doing those types of intros. And so we focused in on that. That is branding right there. And then you had other little key phrases throughout the video. Next, I had you do something that most people would be intimidated by and just literally not do, and that was to make a few videos. How many videos did I actually have you make? – [Nick] 20. – 20. So he went through the list of your hundred topics, and I had you personally make 20 different videos. How was that? How was it? – It was time-consuming, but the idea behind making 20 videos in advance is a profound idea for people’s mind states, I think, because one of the things that you see a lot when you’re looking around forums and whatnot about YouTube, with creators, is “Oh, I have an update coming up “this Thursday, and I don’t know “what I’m going to make the video about.” So by making the videos that far in advance, one, it helped me get my rhythm together. And two, it releases that pressure from my mind as far as what am I going to make a video about because I’ve already got videos for months down the road. – Yeah, you got months down the road, you have a template because you have those hundred topics. Realistically, it’s 80, right? Because you’ve already used 20 of those, and so you’re always going to be doing recon on getting more topics, but you already did the prep work before, and you did the 20 videos. And one of the things that we discussed in detail when you made those videos, is okay, what’s the strategy to get people to watch them? We talked about that strategy. We don’t have time today to go through everything guys, but I have a lot of videos on talking about strategies, of how to get people to watch videos. You can check that out. But we also discussed the timing, because you made those videos, they were good. We did some edits, had you do some edits on a few of them, tighten them up a little bit. You got some feedback from other people, which was great. You had everything set, and then we talked about the schedule of release. Because isn’t that key, understanding what video would be the best to release and then the next? And I gave you some pretty interesting, that first initial release, that you weren’t just going to release one video in a week. What kind of advice did I give you on your specific channel? – On my specific channel, you recommended that I do two times a week at least, and that I release on a Wednesday and Saturday, opposed to Friday and a Sunday. – Right. And with that discussion, we actually… You just launched your channel not too long ago. Let me just do a little quick snippet of your channel trailer, and then we’ll talk about, we’ll continue to talk about the discussion we’re having on your release strategy. Is that cool? – [Nick] Okay, yeah, perfect. (epic music) – You know, right? Who’s actually going to do that, but… (epic rock music) I’m Nick, welcome to All Our Questions, where I search the Internet for questions that we all want answers to and I answer them. So if you consider yourself a curious person and you want to know more about the world that we live in and the questions that we all have, then go ahead and click the subscribe button on this page so you can get answers to all our questions. (epic music) – Okay, so you kind of get a feel of what Nick is going to do. There’s a lot of energy in that channel trailer. He actually created that trailer as well once he had that content that was made. And the strategy to release is we wanted to figure out what he was releasing, when he was releasing for the next two months. And we wanted to do it twice a week, and so he came up with the schedule, it looked really good, we adjusted a few things on it, and then the first week though, which you just barely launched your channel, and you can see right here, you just have a few videos, you posted more than twice a week. Why did you do that? – Because basically when the channel first went live, you had me do a video per day for the first four days, and basically try to spread that around, to try to get the momentum rolling right out of the gate. – Great, and what happened just that first week? I mean, what did you do… – Well, first week? – [Derral] Yeah. – First week as of this conversation, I’m at 97 subscribers out of the first week, which is fantastic. – That’s awesome. And all you did was release your videos, put them out there and then you started to push them off of YouTube. I saw a lot on Facebook and other communities. – [Nick] I have them everywhere. – Yeah. – Yeah, I put them out everywhere. – Yeah, and so you’re starting to do the leg work of the strategy we talked about, of okay, now that you released a video, let’s go through your launch sequence, which you’re literally going out to these communities, on different social profiles that you already created that you’re using on your personal profile, plus this other profile and you’re just pushing that content out there, and people are watching them. I think your first video had like a couple hundred views. These are organic views, these are not paid views, in the first day, you know? Most people struggle to get 100 views, when they’re starting a new channel in the first month, but you were able to get it in a day. – Yeah. So far, every video that I’ve put up, with the exception of one, within 24 hours, I’ve been able to get it to over 100 views. – That’s great. And with this, with this strategy, so you’re doing twice a week, we scheduled out when it was going to release for the next two months, what does your day look like now in preparing for another video? So you’re already pretty much set for two months, and then you’re just kind of planning out there. What’s your process that you actually go through to create content now, even though that you have two months worth of content just waiting to be posted? – The process is basically to open the list of the original topics and see what’s next on the list. And then once I see what’s next on the list, then I research it. And then following the research, I’ll start putting the script together. And usually, once you start putting the script together, it involves a little bit more research, just could you think, oh I need something really interesting, here’s where I really got to dig in. And then after the script is written it, or after the script is written, I will usually sit on it for at least a day, sometimes two days, and then I’ll actually revisit that script, just so I can see it with a fresh mind. And then as long as everything’s good, I’ll make a few edits here and there then I’ll record it. – And the great thing about it is you’re not pressured to put it out there because… – [Nick] At all, at all yeah. – You have the time to do it. My favorite video thus far that’s released is the Grand Canyon video. And your strategy, what I love about that, is you’re at the Grand Canyon, which is only like an hour and half from my house, and I’m surprised that we didn’t connect. – [Nick] Well, it’s on the other side of the world from my house. – Exactly. I’m just surprised that we didn’t connect. I don’t know if I was out of town or whatever, but anyway, you were here close by me, you did one on the Grand Canyon, and it was engaging. It was like a lot of questions that people wanted to know, how big the Grand Canyon is. Also, you went to China and you’re like, hey, I’m already there, so let me just go ahead and make videos that I love to do, right? – Right, yeah. I actually did two videos in China. I did one on interesting facts about China, like what are some interesting facts about China, and then the other one is how big is the Great Wall. And I also have, in Japan, what are some interesting facts about Japan. I did a video there as well. – Yeah, see, and that’s the key thing, is as you’re traveling, this channel can provide you content. All you got to do is a little prep work beforehand and you can go out and shoot it and you’re good to go. I mean, you’re golden. And the great thing about it is there’s a lot of people that are curious. I mean, you don’t necessarily need to leave your house at all to do any of those videos, like how big the Grand Canyon is or how big the Great Wall of China is or anything like that. You can actually be in your own studio, but it brought an element, you’re already going on a trip, why not make a video about this? I mean, you didn’t go to China just to go see the Great Wall and record a video. Were you on business, or what did you do? – Because of where I live, every three months, I’m required to leave the country because I have to get a stamp on my visa that says that I went out the country every 90 days then I have to come back in. So because of that, that allows me the opportunity to be able to go to different places around Asia or the world. And while I’m there, I might as well take my camera with me and make some videos. – That’s awesome, that is awesome. – Yeah, and it’s fun too. It’s led to some cool experiences. I have another one, another video in the queue about is skydiving safe. So even with that one, that wasn’t something that I, I mean, I did it in the States when I was there, but that’s not something that you have to go to some other area really in order to do it. It’s just taking something that I was going to do anyway and saying okay, how can I work a video into this, because it’s something that people want to know. – So my question out of all of this, you’ve been doing this, we literally started in February, now it’s gone several months into this and tell me, are you having fun in doing this? – I’m having a blast. I’m having an absolute blast. Like everything from like writing the script is fun because as I’m writing it or editing it or whatever, like that ideas will come for where to put in a little joke or where to put in like a little whatever. And then when recording videos, you make videos, you know how enjoyable that is. Everybody watching this probably makes videos, and you guys know how enjoyable that is. And then the interaction that I’m getting on YouTube itself, just stuff that people are saying and being able to interact with people that otherwise I would have never, never been or never been able to have a conversation with, I think it’s incredible. – Now here’s the thing, guys, well, everyone watching, is Nick was passionate about something that he was kind of holding back in his mind and that little blunt conversation that he was doing it wrong let that surface. – Yeah, it caught me on fire. – Now he’s doing something he’s passionate about. And when you’re doing it with something you’re passionate about, guess what, you’ll always find the time, you’ll always be motivated, you’ll always be pushing the envelope, and that’s where you’re able to succeed. So my advice to everyone out there, if you do not like the type of content that you’re putting out there, figure out what that is, go through the process of preparation that Nick went through so that you can actually be ready to make content that you’re excited about, that you’re ready to make your channel do and grow and so many different ways. And here’s my prediction about Nick’s channel, and I don’t say this lightly, he will succeed on YouTube. He will succeed on the Internet. The reason why is he’s passionate about it, he has a plan in place. We haven’t even talked about monetization. We don’t have time to do that, maybe we’ll have to do it on another time, but we have a monetization in place and so much more. Is there anything that you’d like to say, Nick? – Well, like you mentioned a second ago, it’s really important like, you know, if you want to do something, you’ll find the time to do it. If you don’t want to do something or you’re not into it, then you’re going to find a lot of ways or a lot of reasons that you shouldn’t do it. Like with me, because I do graphic design, that’s currently because the YouTube channel isn’t making any money at the moment, so the graphic design is how I earn my living. So just like most everybody that’s watching this video, I have that job that I do, and then after that job or before that job, or during that job sometimes, I’ll work in whatever I have to work in, in order to get the videos made, because I enjoy making the videos. And because of that, it takes the stress away of saying, oh well, I got to put up a video because then if I put this video up, hopefully somebody will sign up for an email list or whatever. It takes that away and it makes it something to where it’s like, oh, I can’t wait until I’m done with this project so that I can hurry up and get home and start working on my YouTube videos. It’s just a totally different mindset when you’re doing something that you really enjoy and that you really believe in doing. – I think that’s it. I mean, that’s the whole thing, and that’s why I believe he’s going to succeed. If you get a minute, you can go over, look in the description below and there’ll be some annotations in this video as well. Check out Nick’s channel. If you like what you see, subscribe because I’m here to tell you, you’ll be one of the first subscribers to a very, very big channel. I’ve worked with some of the biggest channels in the world and he has all the elements that’s needed to really succeed and he’s getting the right direction here. One thing that I do want everyone to know is Nick and I, he hasn’t paid anything. We’ve gone through this process because he submitted a video that I really liked and I approached him of helping him. And my thing is, those that submitted early when we we did this little, like I was trying to do this little thing for my 100,000 subscriber video, I still have all those videos. I’m going to go through it and select my channel evaluations out of this, just like I did for Nick, just to really help the people that really made this channel what it is today. So thank you so much, Nick, for coming on. Any last concluding thoughts that you want to say? – Yeah, I want to thank you for reaching out and taking the time. I know you’re busy with what you do, and I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reaching out to me and making this humongous change in my life. It means the world to me, and I really appreciate it. – Well, thank you so much, and I’m excited to continue to work with you on this because I know you’re going to succeed.
