FIRST 1000 SUBSCRIBERS (DAY IN THE LIFE)
I. Don't. Like needles so I always look away let me knew this. When. It comes to influencers with fake audiences right say I know a lot of people who have millions and millions of followers and, I my Vegas advise them it's like create something, of your own. So. The hot script formula works to do that you. Hook people in you. Give them a reason to stick so stays, today. I'm gonna teach you how to get more views on YouTube, that's. The hook so people know okay plan this on the right video this, is not clickbait this, is what I'm gonna get out of this video good, morning I am just. On my way to go, get an IV which. I do once a month I've been doing it for quite a while now because. It just helps keep my energy levels, up and keeps, me healthy and, I, do feel, like being an entrepreneur, it's, like me an athlete sometimes and as you guys know I grew up in a very athletic family, so. I just know that it's important to take care of yourself so you can actually perform and, I. Just don't like being sick so this helps and you. Have, been asking for day-in-the-life, videos, which i've never really done so this is our first day. In the life video which I am very excited about so, I'm gonna kind of bring you along I, might be breaking the rules slightly, but we're actually gonna bring you along on a couple, of days, it's. Thursday now we're. Gonna take, you through to Saturday where. I am doing a speaking engagement with. Very. Very special guests I'll just say that much. And it's gonna be all about YouTube and getting your first 1000, subscribers, all the tips of tricks and yeah. I hope you guys learned a lot of one of the way. Kula. Come back thank you. Previously. You've done the burnable we've made a custom for you as well yes so the, things that we were helping you with were, you, know helping support your mood. Increasing. The your metabolism, adding more vitamins. And adding in some specific amino acids, a little, bit more immune support by adding in more vitamin C yeah is that something you want to do again I think that's kind of perfect that's the one I like the best so yeah, that's a really nice formula for you I'd prefer not to go back to burnout so this is like preventative. Measure yeah, you guys know that. Doesn't. Happen but. Yeah that sounds perfect for me yeah. Thank. You. It's. A nice compliment. First. Time ever at that. Oh. Well, that's good too hey-oh. Well. Because they're juicy oh yeah. Sort. Of concave. Yeah it's the problem, okay. We don't want everybody, happy if you have usually, I teach you about YouTube today I'm teaching you about veins you don't want concave, and know you don't know, want. Them juicy grapes. Okay, okay you take a nice deep breath in for me. Good. Job thank, you where's parts over perp we're. Done we did it. So. Um. Busy. Week not like a crazy busy week but today. I have a pretty. Big livestream that I'm doing in someone else's group about. YouTube. And how to use it to grow your business so. That's. Happening today and then just a lot of meetings over the next two days and then, like I said Saturday we have this event that I'm doing all. About YouTube as well so, we're gonna take you along than that but the reason that I do this. You. Can comment and tell me if you think I'm crazy or. Comment, and tell me if you do this too and the. Reason I do this is because it just. Like. Nourishes. Me and gets vitamins, back in and make, sure that I am, up for all, the stuff have going on because. I think I is such a high tolerance at this point for stress, before, busyness. And. For, events and for speaking I don't really get nervous like I used, to but it still does take a toll and it's, still a lot of energy output so doing. This allows me to have that energy to keep moving. Forward and bring. My best self to the table and I know, I say this all the time but I really. Have learned. Especially. Going, through like, major burnout and stuff like that in the past if. I don't take care of myself I, can't take care of anything, else I can't take care of my business I can't take care of my relationships. I just can't do much else so. I love coming here it's like 45 minutes of forced relaxation, I listen, to a podcast or I read a book or just sit and do nothing and it, just helped me replenish, myself, so I can take, care of everything so I think, that's a big takeaway no matter where you are on your business even if you take like an hour away and go, for a walk or something it.
Took Me a long time to learn that those things make a huge difference to your sustainability. And running your business so. Take care of yourself or else you're not gonna be able to take care of anything else and nobody. Wants to get there. His own out for a little bit enjoy. My relaxation and, tune. In to Oprah, soul super soul Sunday obviously. Okay, finish. The IV feel. Good. And now just brush your home to ensure that I am situated on my computer and can talk to, all. These people that I'm doing this live stream for about YouTube. And YouTube for fitness we're just gonna general. Know. Hi. Can. You hear me okay. Okay. I'm good how are you. It. Has been a while, yeah. So the, first step is really breaking in broken into four phases so I have this methodology we call we call it the sunny system kind of a play on the solar system. But. I but if you can visualize it, YouTube. Really, is the, Sun it's at the center of the solar system and it's. Got. All of these other planets around it and the planet the other planets around it are your, social media platforms, your, email lists your, Facebook, group your, customers, your, leads. Your. Influential. Relationships. Your press opportunities and, it's. Fueling, all of those things but the beautiful part about it is all. Of those things are also fueling, YouTube so two. Things one really, is getting your, research down and. The. Research is the hardest, most, time-consuming, part but, it's also the most valuable because, and. I'm sure there's people who can relate to those who are watching you, create a piece of content you. Put it up you think it's gold and you get crickets, and that's. Not a nice feeling plus it's not pushing the needle for your business so I always. Say research before you record because, that allows you to get clear on who you're trying to target and what kind of opportunities. Are trying to attract in. Those, in that realm in that system, so. For me I started. With social media I was talking about social media cuz it was what I knew and had been studying and working with my clients on for five years and then, I really, niche down to YouTube, and, the. Research phase really comes. Up in a couple of different ways first thing easiest thing, create. A list of fa Q's my. First video that I did that kind of took off for me was when I did a video from, my clients FAQ, which was. About live-streaming at the time about periscope so create a list about fake use create a master, list which is any, skill. That you have mastered in your business that you can teach other people or that people are constantly, asking you for help with. Hey. Thank you for having me. Okay. Bye. So. Just finish the live that was super fun and I think, oftentimes. People, don't understand the amount of like content, you, have to do on a weekly basis especially to drive in online business so doing. Interviews. Like that it's always so fun and the, purpose, really is to spread the word about what. Your products and services are and. It. Always turns out when I do these interviews, and I'm talking, about YouTube and using it to grow your business doesn't. Help me a lot where people go oh my gosh that was so insightful and I'm gonna hire you and so so, just happy fair which is super great and I think just. Like YouTube the more you put your genius into the world and the more you, can get onto, people's podcasts, or interviews, or do guest, appearances, or lives and Facebook, groups that are in your niche the, more people know who you are what you do and what your the best diet and the more people are gonna want to hire you so, now, I, am moving into, a, lot, of content so today's content heavy day and I try to kind of do all of this in one day so that, I, quite.
Frankly Don't have to do my makeup on other days and. And. For other reasons but we're going to be doing b-roll for, some, of the videos that we shot last week we did four in one day which is how I like to do my YouTube videos I like to batch them unless, they're more day-in-the-life when we do them like this but. I like to have batch content, to have, a safety net in case we can't make content one week so. We're gonna do b-roll for, one of those videos and then, we're gonna do some photos for, social, content marketing, website. All that stuff. And yeah. Just content. Content, content all day long and that's kind of what it takes you gotta be on all the time. All. Right it's obviously, afternoon, now and we are rolling along with content, we have shot so much we still have a little more to do and the. Hot tip whenever you have photos, or content to get or you're doing videos I like to get props and things ahead of time it makes it a lot easier so, we are gonna wrap up I'm gonna head into some meetings and I, will see you on. Saturday. Morning. Welcome. Come. On in. So. It's. About 8:20. I think right now and, I'm. Just getting ready for the day so I, start with my green smoothie oh and. Obviously. I have this set up all the time just, kidding. I don't have a light in my house all the time but, you got a lighting. Is important, so. I have my green smoothie which is, why. Don't you actually asked me what's in my green smoothie so what I put it in is almonds. I soaked them overnight or. The self in the morning it's almonds spinach, hemp, seeds, berries. That's, why it's not a green smoothie, I keep, thinking and saying it is but it's not it's purple. Berries, and. Protein. Powder. I. Think. That's everything, but if I forget anything I'll add it in somewhere and, then just gonna make some tea prep, my slides and, get, ready to head to the, events and meet everyone. There so. I am going, over my slides, which I generally do the morning of whenever I'm speaking, it's. Funny because what I used to do speaking engagements I think my very first speaking engagement I. Remember. Just being so nervous, that I couldn't. Sleep I felt like I was gonna faint or, throw, up I. Was shaking, as I walked up on the stage and I, prepared, for probably. Assault a couple weeks and then the day before I, think, I spent the entire day rehearsing. Everything, I was gonna say including like any funny joke so I'm just. And I'm like a laugh, track. So, I, I've. Come a long way because this, morning I actually forgot, which presentation, I'm giving and I have like pretty standard presentations, I'll just tweak them depending on the audience which is like a huge time-saver a huge hack that, most speakers -, and. So, I forgot which when I was giving the swearing so I just wanted to refresh, my memory make sure I knew which slides I'm gonna be going over and. Then, that's pretty much it then I feel pretty prepped to go because I know the information I guess that's the thing that got me over my nerves so speaking is that you. Know this you're an expert that's why you were asked to speak there or. Why they want you to speak on their stage so, it's, all up here, these, are just kind.
Of There for security, but. You don't really need them and they should just be the cues for you to go into your genius zone and talk about the, things that are gonna be most valuable to the audience and the thing - for me that got me over my nerves big time was this mental shift of it's. Not about me it's not about what the audience thinks of me because honestly, at any speaking engagement, people want you to do well there's nothing, worse than watching a speaker who's awkward, and uncomfortable it, makes everyone uncomfortable so, they want you to do well and they're, rooting for you so just know, that and know that you're there to serve and help them and once you switch, it from I'm, so nervous I'm so nervous I'm so nervous what if I screw up what if I say something stupid what, if I trip. What if I fall and, you take, that new flip and you go how much can I bring to the table for this audience and how much can I inform them and educate them and, just. Bring value your. Nerves dissipate, so I always say like take the eye out of it takes you, out of it and make it about the audience and, that's. When you really start to gain momentum in the speaking realm to feel super, comfortable on stage so yeah. That's my little trick I. Feel. Very prepared I just get really excited to meet, in, real life I feel, like I like to talk to people all day long online, but meeting. Them actually, in real life it's very cool so I'm excited about that. There. Yeah, good. I. Have. This teeny, tiny little car, it's my little Fiat Nonie who I believe, you've met before. And. We. Have had to shrimp so much stuff in here all the gear and everything and, I've had her for three, years and, she, constantly surprises, me with how durable she is but thank. God for the money. Because. It is this Saturday the, traffic is so light and truthfully. I never. Drive, because we, live central. Downtown and I. Pretty much in walk everywhere and I like walking a lot so even if, the traffic was bad it wouldn't be that upset about it but. Yeah it's really not not so bad it's early on a Saturday and I think most people are probably still sleeping. We. Just arrived think if ik and we're here for, a. Video influencers. Meet. Up with, Benjy and we're. Gonna be doing a little presentation, about how to get, more engagement on YouTube and how to get. Your first hundred versus. Subscribers. And meet a lot of really awesome youtubers. And creators and entrepreneurs, in Vancouver, so I'm so excited what's, going, oh, yeah. Snacks for me you're like if you've ever seen that viral video the girl who says snacks it's ruined me saying or it snaps now I'm hoping we can cut to it here cuz it's really funny. Yeah. I have to have snack to me at all times because I get hungry all. Day every day and I try not to go for crap food because it doesn't make me feel good or energized so having, healthy, stuff on the go helps me keep going throughout the day. Benji. I'm sure you love you know him from video influencers. Who. In Sean do an amazing job on that channel so we're. Working together today and open, and provide a crap, ton of value for people, here. So. We just finished the event obviously if, you watch YouTube, you know Benji, and Sean, from. Video influencers, two of my favorite people in the space we've been collaborating for a very long time and, have kind of grown together which is really really cool so. I wanted to talk about we. Did this event we were providing, all this info on how to grow on YouTube I want to dive in to get how to get your first thousand subscribers, so we're going to talk about that but. Also want. To talk about the fact that we technically, people, probably see us as competitors but. My motto is caught variation over competition, I think that's how you grow together so you, invited me here to talk at this event today what are your thoughts on collaboration, absolutely. I think it's literally one of the number one ways to, grow your subscriber base, is to collaborate with other people right and for, them to collaborate with you and this, was I say the reason I never think of you or other people in this space as competition, is, because literally there's, not enough, of us total there is so, many people out there that want to learn this stuff in different ways right people, that you know one of the why I love collaborating with you today is there a female expert.
At, YouTube, right there's not enough females, and females will, relate to you like even some of the jokes you're saying and some of the experiences I felt like that that audience will, connect with you way more pen, guys matter than I could ever connect so if you come, up different, lifestyle, you, know like you're from a different country again. Whatever makes you unique is what's, going to create, opportunity. For you and not necessary compete with other people, collaborations, so important, totally let's, talk about how you get your first 1000 subscribers it's probably the top question I get asked in the comments so yes I hear you I'm listening I've done a video on this topic but let's talk about some updated tactics because, we've, both grown a lot we've come a long way we had to get that first thousand subscribers what do you say nowadays to, get there two, things one basic and one liked high-level strategy, path. Right now number one be completely. Clear, in what, it is that you want to do on YouTube, what it is you want to offer your audience, and who you want to connect with if you understand, that it's gonna be easier, for you to create quality content, that YouTube, is gonna surface, in the top ranks, of search secondly. If, you have the chops go, live, okay, this, is a huge, hack right now if you go live and then upload. A video a few days later there's, something, about those two working together as long as alive, you're, putting out quality content it's, huge, right now so that would be the hack but again the clarity, goes, along with going live - right like that life can't just be random mumble, jumble it's got to be about what everybody's, doc that is your. What your intentional, about your content, is that enough no that's perfect that's really I mean you can keep going if there's anything else bad I just, say this the last thing is you, know there's, so much opportunity on, YouTube in fact. We. Just wrote this book YouTube secrets, and of course I'm plugging. This but the reason we wrote this after being, on this platform for 10 years that we believe there's gonna be so, much more opportunity coming for, a long period, of time you know you see like platforms, going up and down but you always, see YouTube being completely, relevant, yeah number one so start, the channel if you haven't if you've got a channel you're just getting going it's gonna take some time this is a marathon not a sprint and there's just so much that you can be doing with YouTube right now I'm just gonna add on to your two tips so I think one, thing that's really really important, when you go live like you said be intentional, about it and if you're just starting first, and foremost just start making content, kids would, you agree that you can't actually master, the platform, and tell you start making content, absolutely, so you gotta start making the content second of all do searchable, content you talked about this a lot today I harp, on it all the time do. Searchable, content on your lives because those lives can rank and, in the ranking you can be number one you can show up and suggest it for a live video because it lives on forever and then you're continuing, to get views and racking up those views over time so finally. I think we just touch on like the keywords the titles. The search factor, because I would still say that that's like king, absolutely. Yeah so I mean like when I say clarity, it goes along with it right like that title, has to be so clear for if you love your example if I don't use crazy long titles, you know use something that's focus and it's around something that people actually search, a, thumbnail, that's relevant and the content, just got to be fired it's got to be clear, and I would just say on the collaboration front, to collaborate. With people who are the same size as you a lot of the time people want to collaborate with these people that are like massive. Massive following that yes that's possible but, we started clapping, when we were around the same size in our channel and way. Smaller than where we are now and that helped, us build mutual audiences. And built, each other together so don't be afraid to work with people for at the same stage view because the beautiful thing about that is years later you're, doing events like this. Thank. You so much the. First time I've done a video and the sort of like Dan the lifestyle, so what else do you want to see of my life and of work and.
