    Get More Views on YouTube in 15 Seconds (ep 053)

    A quick tip to answer how to get more views on YouTube in 15 Seconds. This trick will not only get you more video views but increase engagement and get you more subscribers on YouTube as well. The hook to your video is important to make people curious but also let them know you will deliver on what your title and thumbnail is promising the viewer.

    How To Get More Views? - The first 15 seconds of your video is the time you have to reassure your viewer that they will get what they expected from the video thumbnail or title. This might be the answer to a question, some action, or in my case normally a youtube tutorial showing them something that could get them more subscribers, add an end screen or do something cool with a youtube feature.

    If you can master the first 15 seconds of your video you will increase overall watch time, get more views for longer and that can also convert into more subscribers in the long run. Get more views fast but then keep them learn how to hook viewers and they will engage with you.

    Too Scared To Be On Camera? (ep 050)

    Too Scared To Be On Camera? (ep 050)

    Too shy to be on camera? Not comfortable on camera? Not started a channel because you don't want to be seen on camera? Worried that you'll look silly? Its all in your head! The best way to get comfortable on camera is to be on camera!!

    Today is a clip of a coaching call I had with my client Samira Alexander. For years she has run a success for business but a fear for showing her face on camera. Before now all her videos have been overlays, meditations or camera down tutorials. In this clip I finally convince her that the power to be on camera is in her hands, and she needs to just do it!

    Maybe its a confidence thing? Looking to learn how to be more confident on camera? Looking to fight being camera shy? Being shy on camera is natural, all you need to learn is that you are in control of what is seen, edited and uploaded!

    WHY? What is your WHY? (ep 048)

    WHY? What is your WHY? (ep 048)

    Why do you make YouTube videos? Why should people subscribe to you over anybody else? Why do you make the videos you do? Why sport, why not comedy? Why beauty, why not DIY? What makes you want to be a YouTuber.

    It is very import for you to figure out the WHY in your content. Did you start YouTube for the money? Are you hoping for YouTube Fame? Are you making videos to help people learn? Maybe you want to make people laugh.

    The WHY is important!

    I don't care if you are here for fame and money as long as you understand that is WHY you are here and you work towards that. If you are going to start a YouTube channel the WHY can be your guiding light and the reason to make content, even when no one has found you yet.

    We can grow together, We can learn together... Start Creating!

GenXBrat ,

Learn a ton AND laugh!!

I’ve only listened to the first one because he just got started, but if it’s ANYWHERE as good at his YouTube channel, I will definitely be coming back for every episode. Alan teaches in a really simple manner, AND he’ll make you laugh!

Update: 22 episodes in and I’m still listening (and learning) every week!
